Two local men killed in Lions Gate crash

Take it from the tap UBC students from Richmond launched a campaign encouraging Richmondites to go water bottle free, exchanging disposable for the reusable.

BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Two young Richmond lives have been wiped out following a fatal crash on the Lions Gate Bridge. West Vancouver police confirmed the men, age 21 and 20, were seen speeding northbound on the bridge just before midnight on Wednesday when they lost control and slammed into an oncoming transit bus. The Jaws of Life were used to extract the male driver and passenger from the Mazda 6 vehicle that struck the bus, West Vancouver Police’s Sgt. Ed Pearce said in a media statement. One man was pronounced dead at the scene, while the other was taken to hospital and died shortly after from injuries. The southbound transit bus carried about 15 people on board, all who survived. A third vehicle, trying to avoid the accident, was also involved. Police described the victims’ vehicle as being “demolished” by the collision. The victims’ identities will not be released until their next of kin has been notified. The bridge, which was closed for several hours for crash investigators to comb the scene, reopened to busy morning commuter traffic shortly before 7 a.m. Thursday. Police say it’s too early to tell whether drugs or alcohol were factors in the tragic incident. Four others, including the bus driver and three of his passengers, were taken to hospital for treatment of nonlife-threatening injuries. Check www.richmondnews.com for updates. $

Richmond group studies poverty Having a job doesn’t necessarily shield you from hardship BY YVONNE ROBERTSON

yrobertson@richmond-news.com

The 2012 Child Poverty Report Card, released by First Call: BC Child and Youth Advocacy Coalition last Wednesday doesn’t offer specific statistics regarding Richmond, however its conclusion appears to mirror a local trend: Having a job doesn’t necessarily guard you from poverty. “It’s been difficult finding individual community results, but I’ve made some calls to get child poverty data for Richmond,” said Helen Davidson, of Richmond Children First. “We’re hearing that there’s a lot more working poor in the city, where both parents are working in most cases. With the increasing cost of food, gas, etc., a family’s income does not go as far these days. “Anecdotally, we’re hearing that the Richmond Food Bank is seeing more working families and attendance is also up at

community meals.” Using the latest statistics in 2010, the Child Poverty Report Card found B.C.’s child poverty rate fell in that year to 10.5 per cent after tax, from 12 per cent in 2009. The coalition estimates 87,000 children in the province live in poverty. The figure brings B.C. closer to the national average at 8.2 per cent, but it still has the second highest rate in Canada, with Manitoba in the top spot. Most pressing is to move from an ideological agenda of job creation and low taxes to solutions with more of an impact such as increasing minimum wage and welfare rates, decreasing tuition fees and providing better funding for childcare, according to First Call’s provincial coordinator, Adrienne Montani. “Not all jobs are good jobs. Are we only creating low wage jobs? Decreasing tuition fees would allow better access to higher education so people can

find more meaningful employment. “Childcare is the next highest expense beside the exorbitant housing costs.” In order to get a clearer picture of poverty in Richmond, The Face of Child Poverty in Richmond project aims to engage parents and children about what it means for children to live in poverty here, said Davidson of the Children First study. At Wednesday’s meeting, the committee put final touches on a survey to send out to organizations about formal and informal supports offered for low-income families. The project hopes to craft a study with concrete figures and experiences in order to move forward and create policy change. Throughout the past few months, it worked with more than 3,000 kids, ages three to 12, to put together a Children’s Charter. see Food banks page 13

“We are not defined by what we get, but by what we have to offer.” — Federal Liberal Party leadership hopeful Justin Trudeau speaks to Pathways staff.

BY BENJAMINYONG Special to the News

If Cherrie Lam had her way, there would hardly be a disposable plastic water bottle in the city. Lam, a second year UBC student, is part of an initiative called “I’d Tap That — Richmond Against Bottled Water.” Along with members Lilian Lau, Elizabeth To and Ricky Gu, the initiative that started as a microeconomics policy project has started to gain traction. “All the Richmond high schools now have at least one water bottle filling station. You don’t have to touch it, it automatically dispenses into your water bottle,” said Lam. “We’re pushing for community centres, elementary schools and the library to adopt this too. Then people would get more accustomed to bringing their water bottles out instead of buying bottled water all the time.” The 19-year-old first became passionate about water stewardship as a Grade 10 student at Steveston London secondary school. Lam entered a winning video about water recycling systems she made for BC Hydro’s Invent the Future contest – encouraging youth to develop creative solutions to B.C.’s sustainability challenges. The project eventually led to her becoming involved with Youth4Tap, a Vancouver-based group focused on local water conservation. It was there that Lam realized there were many other proponents of tap water consumption.

TEA PARTY Photo Gallery: The Richmond Minoru Seniors Society held its annual Tea Party at the Cultural Centre, where

“University kind of came along, and I fell out of involvement with the group,” said Lam, laughing. Then, when this project at UBC came along, it automatically clicked with me what topic we should pick,” she said. And “I’d Tap That” was born. Lam and her team members formulated a proposal they have since submitted to schools, community centres and shopping malls in Richmond, along with the City of Richmond, based on a three-pronged strategy: ❚ Education: Educate the public on the negative impacts of bottled water, such as misconceptions of recycling as well as environmental and health concerns, and raise awareness on the benefits of drinking tap water; ❚ Accessibility: Add more water bottle filling stations in community facilities to make tap water more accessible; ❚ Policy: Implement policy to ban the sale of bottled water on public or municipal properties, such as schools and community centres. Lam said the latter strategy is proving to be the most challenging to implement. In 2009 the city looked into banning bottled water sales in municipal facilities with public access but faced arguments such as plastic water bottles only contribute negligible effects to waste, and a ban would cause harm to the bottled water industry resulting in a loss of jobs. I’d Tap That has addressed these with counter-arguments in the proposal. Other obstacles Lam and the others have faced has been having their proposal pass through several hands without receiving any response, or establishments already having existing contracts with companies like Coca Cola or Pepsi. Right now, the team is in discussions to partner with the Richmond School board and host a lesson plan with activities to teach students about tap water. They’re also trying to get high schools to install more than one water bottle refill station.

CHARITY

Soaring to new heights as a volunteer pilot ARLEN REDEKOP PHOTO/ PNG

BY JOHN COLEBOURN The Province

A retired Air Canada pilot, Henry Ilg, from Richmond, is on-call for the national charity, which arranges free flights for people needing medical treatment. Many Hope Air flights are from rural areas, often taking sick children to B.C. Children’s Hospital for critical operations. Ilg, 60, owns a Cessna 177 Cardinal single-engine four-seater plane, and is coowner of a Piper Seneca twin-engine sixseater. Since first volunteering his time and planes back in 2009, Ilg has flown 12 Hope Air flights, eight of them this year. Ilg has had a lifelong love of flying, and by volunteering for Hope Air, he points out he gets to see a big chunk of B.C. while helping people who are going through a tough time in life. Hope Air covers half the cost of the fuel, and Ilg gets a tax credit on the rest. “I want to go flying, anyway,” he said on Wednesday of his passion for flight and helping people get to their scheduled medical appointments. “It is a reason now to go flying — it has become my hobby.” On any Hope Air flight, Ilg has a close eye on the conditions and will not take any passengers in high winds or other bad weather. “My attitude is safety, comfort, sched-

ule,” he said. Since he is often going over mountain passes, Ilg has a simple rule. “If the winds over the mountains are in excess of 45 knots [83 km/h], I will not fly,” he said. So far this year, Hope Air has provided more than 5,700 flights for people across the country. Of those, 70 per cent are from B.C. Hope Air flies people of all ages to their medical appointments. Ilg said his passengers have had a wide range of medical conditions. Some have been on his flight to get a liver transplant,

others are travelling for follow-ups to a major operation. “I don’t ask what their medical condition is,” said Ilg. “I’m there to give them a nice flight. Some volunteer their medical information, but I don’t ask. “As a Hope Air Volunteer Pilot, I get enormous satisfaction knowing that I am helping someone get to the doctors, specialists or treatments that they need to get better. “Hope Air makes sure that people’s access to health care is not limited by where they live or how much money they

have. I’m proud to be part of the Hope Air goal of ‘Getting Canadians To Getting Better.’” Hope Air executive director Doug Keller-Hobson said they have about 135 active volunteer pilots. Comedian Rick Mercer and former astronaut and federal Liberal leadership candidate Marc Garneau are national honourary patrons of the registered charity. Keller-Hobson noted that Hope Air flights can be from “anywhere there is an airport.” “Canada is a big country, and medical specialists for certain conditions may exist in only one or two places across the country,” he said. And he emphasized that they use only experienced pilots. “We have high requirements for being a pilot with Hope Air,” Keller-Hobson said. Hope Air typically helps clients who live at or below the poverty line. The charity also has flight time donated through Canada’s various airlines, and when necessary they will pay for a ticket on a domestic carrier. The charity’s Flight Purchase Program uses donated funds from individuals, events, corporations and foundations to purchase flights when donated flights can’t be arranged.

Ads attack ethics

W

hen did governing become campaigning — all the time? Our next federal election is set for Oct. 19, 2015, but if you listen to the radio, you might think it was next week given the huge number of attack ads on Thomas Mulcair the Conservative party is presently buying. Given the Conservatives have the majority they have so long sought, and the next election is three years away, it’s more than annoying to listen to the constant repetition of drive-by smears that pass for electioneering in Tory land. The ads denounce Mulcair for his “carbon tax” plan that will allegedly cost Canadians $20 billion and “make everything you need cost more.” The Tories had huge success with hanging the label of intellectual dilettante around the neck of Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff with the phrase “he didn’t come back for you.” Repeated early and often, Ignatieff was defined in many voters’ minds by his opponent’s advertising campaign, more successful even than previous attacks on Stéphane Dion for his “tax on everything.” Clearly, the Tories are at it again with a vengeance, but this time they are twisting the truth till there is none left. The fact is, unlike Dion, Mulcair has never advocated a carbon tax. He has said he favours a cap-and-trade-plan that would provide government revenue, but that is not a tax. At least it wasn’t when the Conservatives favoured such a scheme in their party platform. If it wasn’t then, it isn’t now. But why let the truth get in the way of a good smear — unless ethics matter.

CHOICE WORDS

Geese cull — a veiled attempt to allow hunting The Editor, Re: “Coun. seeks snow geese cull,” News, Nov. 21. Once again, as he did 10 years ago, Richmond Councillor Harold Steves is calling for a cull of the snow geese which stop over in Richmond at this time of year, complaining that they “leave the areas devoid of vegetation, but full of mud and faeces.” Two days ago, I walked across a local school field that had been occupied by the birds the previous day. I spotted four dried up goose poops, no mud — that was before the rains came — and the grass looked as healthy as ever. Maybe the reason for the seeming “increasing number of geese” which temporarily occupy local playing fields is because Richmond council seems determined to pave over every last vestige of their traditional habitat. This outburst is nothing more than yet another attempt to allow hunting on Sturgeon Banks once again. So, as happened before, we will be treated to the sight of hunters walking the local streets near Sturgeon Banks with uncovered guns under their arms, and that is what this is all about.

Cult of the natural persons strikes again Way back in the dawn of the Internet, say around 1998 or so, I inherited a work email address that got a lot of odd junk mail. The previous user had apparently signed up for every crank and nutcase mailing list he could find. I never unsubscribed, because I like free comedy, too. So it was there that I learned that black UN helicopters were irradiating cattle with fluoride, or that alien reptiloids were constructing concentration camps for Christians. One frequent missive told me that the requirement for a driver’s licence was a myth. Also: you didn’t have to pay taxes if you didn’t want to! These emails were coming from a small subsection of the right wing fringe in the United States, so I just rolled my eyes. Imagine my surprise when I learned that this myth had taken firm root here in Canada. This week, we heard about a Fort Langley man who was stopped in Chilliwack for driving without a licence. Tyler Olson of the Chilliwack Times, relayed the strange series of rationalizations the man gave to a very perplexed judge: he was a “natural person” and, as such, didn’t have to get a driver’s licence. Chilliwack must be a popular spot for these guys, since it was earlier this January that a Chilliwack man, Russell Porisky, and

Matthew Claxton PAINFUL TRUTH

his wife Elaine Gould had been found guilty of failing to pay tax on $1.12 million of income, and of counselling his students to commit fraud. Porisky, now appealing, was running the Paradigm Educational Group, which ran seminars encouraging folks to consider themselves, you guessed it, “natural persons.” Porisky’s philosophy, whether spread by him or others, has led to a scattering of tax prosecutions around the country, from B.C. to Manitoba. The natural person movement is a weird cross between a political philosophy, a scam and a cult. There are plenty of people who believe in less (or no) government, or radically different forms of government. But libertarians, anarchists and radical socialists all recognize that the government, you know, actually exists. They don’t pretend it can’t throw you in jail. Natural persons nuts seem to believe that a few semantic tricks — one website on the Canadian movement had an extensive, baffling section on grammar — can make you invisible to the taxman and other

authorities. They believe that a natural person is distinct from a legal person. If you don’t get a driver’s licence, don’t sign contracts, and don’t use your SIN card, you have a kind of magical get-out-of-jail-free card, they will tell you. The thing that offends me the most about these guys isn’t that they believe they shouldn’t have to pay taxes. It’s that they’re amazingly, staggeringly lazy. A real revolutionary tries to free everyone. They kick and bite and claw and scream and try to do something about the state of the world. The Occupy Movement and the Tea Party come from very different places, but they have passion in common. By contrast, “natural persons” are happy to drive, unlicensed, on roads paid for with someone else’s taxes. They’re happy to put one over on the government, and to think themselves smarter than the rest of us, who are clearly idiots and dupes. They’re pleased to have the benefits of a largely taxpaying society, which they believe they can opt out of whenever it suits them. They don’t want to really change things for anyone else. It’s a sad, strange little world they inhabit. Matthew Claxton is a reporter for the Langley Advance.

Time to cull roof cranes

The Editor, Re: “Coun. seeks snow geese cull,” News, Nov. 21. The open fields and playgrounds are suffering a negative impact from the annual migration of the snow geese again this year. Our downtown core is also suffering from the nesting habits of another troublesome creature: the roof crane (condoerectus). Once, very rarely seen in these parts, these tall transient cranes have now become a common site — a work site. A place where these cranes build tall vertical nests that some consider a blight on our horizon. The nest of the roof crane can be found on what was once a grassy field, or, on the site of a not so old demolished building. In past years, it has always built its nest near the downtown core. And, where one builds a nest, another one is sure to shoot up nearby, all staying in a tight group. But, tall nests have been seen in areas never occupied by the crane before, until now. The north end of No. 2 Road is now a common site for the roof crane where many nests now stand.

For the roof crane, the weeks leading up to Christmas are its mating season. Many, light up like Christmas trees, trying to attract a mate. Judging by their numbers, they seem to be sussessful. I’ve seen men on different nesting sites going around with dogs all night long, never giving a guy a chance to grab anything, I mean, annoying the crane making sure it knows it is not welcome. It takes about a year for the roof crane to realize it’s not welcome and complete it’s nest. Then upon completion, the roof crane moves on to another site. Like the soap in the mens washroom, it’s not used by the crane. People, however, have found these tall concrete structures suitable for habitation. Why, they flock to them, buying them up long before the crane is even finished! I’ve lived in Richmond since 1964 and have seen what effect the roof crane has had on Richmond. The dyke at the north end of No. 2 Road was my playground. An area now lost to my youth. Worry about the roof crane. It’s the one that’s most destructive on the open fields. Bob Niles Richmond

They aren’t Online trumps holidays for all in person The Editor, Re: “Holidays about many religions,” Letters, Nov. 26. It appears to be okay for honika, ramadan and other festivals to be given their true name, but for Christmas not to be called Christmas to many of us is frankly unacceptable. It is not a holiday for people in department stores, bus and taxi drivers to quote a few, so let us get back to calling Christmas what it truly is. Truthfully, I am offended by the “Happy Holidays” use for this occasion. Annie Ross Richmond

Report Cards Shouldn’t Be a Source of Stress!

The first report card of the year is an important indicator of your child’s progress, but along with it may come surprising and even unwelcome news. Poor grades are a source of stress and worry for parents, and to add to this, changing expectations and reporting standards mean that report cards are often filled with comments that parents find difficult to interpret. While a report card serves as only a single snapshot of a child’s progress up to a given point and does not offer the complete picture of a child’s potential, it often foretells things to come. If there are any issues with poor grades, Seema Ahluwalia of Oxford Learning Centre in Richmond recommends that parents take action now. “We need to remember that there is plenty of time left in the school year to get back on track,” says Seema. Founded in 1984, Oxford Learning uses innovative approaches to learning that have helped thousands of students to reach their educational goals. Customized programs based on the science of cognitive development help children to develop the skills that they need to succeed in school while they develop the confidence that they need to succeed in life. Do you have questions about your child’s report card? Parents can contact Oxford Learning Centre at 604-233-5566 for more information. They can also visit the centre at 200 – 7380 Westminster Hwy (near Minoru) for wonderful tips and programs to help their kids achieve their goals.

The Editor, I went to the Richmond Library today in person, and stood in line to get a library card. I’m told by the person at the desk that I have to apply online first. Does this seem stupid to anyone else? In the library’s defense, I was also unable to book a bowling lane in person at The Zone either. Anyway, still don’t have a library card and won’t be going bowling after all. John Ligtenberg Richmond

Don’t live on surface

How much do we live on the surface of life? Sometimes life on the surface seems easier. Health care on the surface would go for the quick fix. Instead of going to the trouble of making an appointment — or even establishing a long-term relationship — with a family physician, why not just go to a walk-in clinic? You could just treat the problems that pop up as quickly as you can with a prescription rather than the commitment and work of lifestyle changes. You could expect a professional to solve all your problems rather than learning what you need to do to prevent disease, promote well-being and actively selfmanage chronic conditions. And when you’re feeling old before your time — from the accumulated effects of smoking, drinking, moodaltering drugs, inadequate rest, unhealthy eating and physical inactivity, you could go for the quick cosmetic fix of a tummy tuck, facelift,

Davidicus Wong, M.D. HEALTHWISE

Botox or fillers. You’d just do what it takes to look better. A young man may focus on muscle building without the cardio, balance and flexibility of more rounded exercise regimes. He may even take the shortcuts of steroids to look better on the surface at the cost of his long-term health. Dieting on the surface targets weight loss without providing our bodies with sufficient nutrition. We might choose a high-caffeine energy drink to make up for a good night’s sleep. Relationships on the surface seem simpler. The focus is fun. All of our friends would be facebook friends with a complete preoccupation with appearances. We wouldn’t share our heartaches or our deepest

dreams. We wouldn’t go out of our way to show our commitment or our feelings. We wouldn’t demand the best of one another and say what needs to be said. Knowing ourselves on the surface would be too simple. We would react and give in to the feelings of the moment, seek to satisfy our cravings. Living our lives in this world on the surface would be simpler but empty. We would mind our own business, not giving out, away or forward. And when we die, our lives would end having not touched the lives of others. We would have existed but not really lived, enjoyed the depths of human experience or approached our personal potentials. No one would have really known us — not even ourselves. From this moment on, don’t live your life on the surface. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician and writer.

In life and in legacy, BC businessman Milan Ilich set an inspiring example NOT ONLY DID HIS COMPANIES CONSTRUCT STREETS AND HOUSES, HE AND HIS FAMILY HELPED BUILD AND SUPPORT COMMUNITIES Milan Ilich was a builder. Not only did his companies construct streets and houses; he and his family helped build and support communities through their philanthropy. Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) and UBC Hospital have been two of the recipients of their Foundation’s immense generosity. The Milan & Maureen Ilich Foundation’s recent donation of $5 million to our hospitals was part of Milan’s estate plan. Part of their gift, $2.5 million, has been directed to multiple sclerosis. It is being invested in a new generation of doctor-researchers at the UBC Hospital MS Clinic and will be used to leverage additional funding from other granting agencies.

As significant and longstanding donors, their philanthropic leadership spanned almost two decades. Even after Milan’s passing, his impact and inspiration lives on through his estate plans and the family’s charitable actions.

“The gift from the Milan & Maureen Ilich Foundation is just another example of the family’s incredible thoughtfulness, generosity, and community spirit,” said Ron Dumouchelle, President & CEO, VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation. “The high-profile initiatives they supported in the past included the purchase of two MRIs at VGH, contributions towards a robot-assisted surgical suite, research relating to MS, prostate diseases, and pancreatic cancer, and the Leukemia/Bone Marrow Transplant program. The magnitude of the family’s many gifts to the people of BC cannot be overstated.” Thank you to the Milan & Maureen Ilich Foundation from VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation, our hospitals and our medical teams. Your generosity will provide enormous benefit to patients who come to our hospitals from all parts of the province, in need of specialized care.

MAKING A DONATION TO VGH These generous donors made their gift through VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation. We raise funds for much-needed medical equipment, important research and enhancements to patient care at VGH, UBC Hospital, GF Strong Rehab Centre, Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute, as well as Community Health Services across Vancouver.

THANK YOU To the Milan & Maureen Ilich Foundation for your gift of $5 million to Vancouver General Hospital and UBC Hospital.

Seeing poverty through film Great news — British Columbia is no longer the Canadian leader in child poverty! That dubious honour now belongs to Manitoba and B.C. is only second worst. But hold on, B.C. still SOCIAL leads the country in having the worst poverty rate of any province for children living in two-parent families. This is according to First Call: BC Child and Youth Advocacy Coalition that released their 2012 Child Poverty Report Card last week. Using Statistics Canada 2010 data, First Call also stated that B.C. is still the leader in overall poverty at a rate of 15.5 per cent of the province’s population. This points to the rising problem of the “working poor” caused by B.C.’s unequal distribution of income among rich and poor families with children. The ratio of the average incomes of the richest 10 per cent compared to the poorest 10 per cent was the worst of any province at 13.8 to one. So the richest 10 per cent are bringing home almost 14 times what the poorest 10 per cent are. We all know wages in B.C. have been stagnant for years. An increase in the minimum wage has helped a bit, but try raising a family on $10 an hour. The slight decrease in income tax has benefited high wage earners more than low wage earners. Add to this, the bigticket items of childcare and rent that have increased disproportionately over the years and continue to be out of step with family income. And if that was not enough, families are also hit with flat taxes such as MSP premiums that have increased by 18 per cent in the last three years. The B.C. government now receives more revenue from MSP payments than from income tax! And did you know that B.C. is the only province in Canada that demands payment of medical premiums? All along we’ve been feeling sorry for the “have-not” provinces like Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island in assuming they have more poverty related

problems than us. The thing is, these provinces have a legislated poverty reduction plan in place. And if we can use Stats Canada as a true measure, the various programs these provinces have instituted are JUSTICE achieving successful results. The foregoing serves as an introduction to a free event that will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 5 at the Ralph Fisher Auditorium at Richmond Hospital from 7 to 9 p.m. A film screening of the Canadian documentary Poor No More and a panel discussion afterwards will be co-hosted by four organizations: the Richmond Poverty Response Committee, Vancouver Coastal Health-Richmond Health Services, UNITEHere Local 40 and the Canadian Federation of University Women-Richmond Chapter. Special guest panelists are our own Ted Bruce (executive director of VCH Population Health and chair of the BC Poverty Reduction Coalition), Lesley Richardson (CFUW Richmond member and long time child care advocate), Michelle Travis (UNITE-Here Local 40 Researcher) and Michael McCarthy-Flynn (Director of the BC Living Wage for Families Campaign). Narrated by Mary Walsh from This Hour has 22 Minutes, the film looks at Canadians stuck in low paying jobs with no security and no future. Walsh then takes us on a journey to Ireland and Sweden so we can see how these countries have tackled poverty while strengthening their economies. The film offers hope to those who have to work two jobs a day and to those who cannot even find work. After the film, panelists will comment on what the film means to them and the work they do. Then questions from the audience will surely spark a lively discussion. For more information on the film, check out the website http://www.poornomore. ca/. For details on the event, you can leave a message at 604-205-4700 and someone will get back to you. De Whalen is a longtime poverty and affordable housing activist in Richmond.

Food banks: Short-term solution, real policy change needed the Richmond Food Bank, or a blanket drive,” said Sue Burford president of the Richmond chapter of the Canadian Federation of University Women. “But these are short-term solutions, we need a commitment from the city to address things like childcare funding.” Last the spring, the CFUW passed a motion to support poverty-related initiatives. To this end, the Richmond branch will host the screening of Poor No More next Wednesday, Dec. 5 (see the above column for details). The CFUW Richmond also plans to present briefs on food security in connection with poverty in the new year.

Community JUSTIN TRUDEAU

A lesson in mental health “Anne, can you go to Justin Trudeau?” It only took those seven words to make my day. As much as I love my desk at the News’ office, it’s always fun to explore more of Richmond. INTERN So I was more than willing to join members of Pathways Clubhouse, who were expecting a visit from special guest Justin Trudeau Nov. 22. Upon entering the boardroom where the intimate meeting would take place, I could feel the tension rising as the minutes passed. It seemed only natural; not every day you get to meet a person who may soon make a significant difference in the political world. When Trudeau finally entered the room, the tension and anticipation made way for excitement and a healthy dose of nervousness. And of course, many cameras were brought out to capture the visit, be it for media purposes, or bragging rights on Facebook. It was the eagerness to grasp each moment that led to some amusing scenes; one woman was too caught up filming to notice Trudeau’s greeting hand reaching out to her.

Yet the content of the round-table discussion was of a more serious calibre, as the aspiring Federal Liberal Party leader discussed issues people with mental health concerns often face. It was quite the eye-openFILES ing experience for myself because there is a difference between being aware of certain issues and truly understanding the impact they can have. While listening to people who live or work with mental illness describe the obstacles and struggles they face, I went from being aware to understanding. A couple of days after Trudeau’s visit, I found myself in Pathways again, this time to celebrate their 25th anniversary. And once more, I was amazed by the friendliness and warmth of people I met there. So why shouldn’t they have a right to decent employment or affordable housing? Meanwhile, Trudeau answered questions patiently and talked about some of his political intentions. He also briefly referred to his mother Margaret,

“...there is a difference between being aware...and tuly understanding...”

MUSEUM

Hailing Richmond’s own Highway to Heaven BY ANNE-FLEUR KAMST Special to the News

Giant menorah will be lit to open exhibit which celebrates city’s many faiths

R

ichmond is home to many different cultures, which has led to a diversity of co-existing religious practices. Richmond Museum has gathered those faiths, religions and spiritual practices in its newest exhibit, called Highway to Heaven: Richmond’s Multi-faith Community. On display are artefacts and photos of Richmond’s faith-based community groups, so residents can examine the city’s diverse religious and spiritual heritage. Instead of each religion or spiritual practice treated separately, “all objects are interwoven, so visitors will get to see a different story. “They will realize how much faith groups have in common,” said Rebecca Forrest, curator at the museum. A special feature on show is a 50-foot “highway” sculpture, decorated with texts and photos of places of worship. The sculpture pays tribute to Richmond’s No. 5 Road, commonly referred to as “Highway to Heaven” with its remarkable collection of community churches, mosques, religious schools and temples. The widely known roadway appears to be quite unique, according to Joe Greenholtz, a columnist for the News, who currently sits on the Richmond Intercultural Advisory Committee. “It seems to be a cultural phenomenon of some sort; I haven’t heard of a gathering of this type anywhere else,” he said. Participating groups not only shared stories about their places of worship, but also about their history, their evolution and their significance. “It is timely to have an exhibit of this kind of theme,” was the most uttered reaction of groups, said Forrest, referring

Lighting up Richmond ... Following the reception to open the Highway to Heaven exhibit, a special ceremony will take place at the Cultural Centre Plaza where one of the world’s largest menorahs, left, will be lit, marking the start of the Jewish celebration, Hanukkah. Below, Helmut and Hugo Eppich stand before the giant Ebco menorah at Ebco Industries, the company they founded after immigrating from Germany.

to a time of conflict and war. “They felt this was an opportunity to show what they are about.” An exhibit like this lets visitors exchange their individual interpretations of objects, guiding them towards new insights, according to Greenholtz. Exploring messages of different faiths together also allows visitors to see each other as people, rather than stereotypes or caricatures. “In religious conflicts, humanity is removed from the other side, which makes it easier to oppose,” he said. However, when people get together “they are exposed to each other as neighbours, not as an abstract idea of some

sort of religion. “And that makes it easier to engage with each other and more difficult to discriminate,” said Greenholtz. As for her part, Forrest expressed the hope each visitor will learn something new and leave understanding and celebrating the diversity in Richmond. The exhibit opens with a free reception at the Richmond Museum, Saturday Dec. 8 at 6 p.m. Food and music will be provided. Following the reception, a special ceremony will take place at the Cultural Centre Plaza; one of the world’s largest Menorahs will be lit, marking the start of Hanukkah, a Jewish celebration.

Seasonal singing to fill Minoru Chapel with festive joy

The sounds of the holidays will resonate within the walls of Minoru Chapel with the third concert of the 2012 fall Minoru Chapel Opera series next Wednesday.

The concert runs at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5, with doors opening 30 minutes prior to the start. Opera Pro Cantanti, meaning “Opera for the Singers”, is a volunteer-run organization that presents fully staged performances of

operas such as Verdi’s La Traviata, Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor and Bellini’s Norma on almost a weekly basis. Its professional and emerging talents include some of the most acclaimed singers in the region. The Dec. 5 concert will be the third of four events in the fall season. All events are held at Minoru Chapel, 6540 Gilbert Road.

Irish eyes smile at oval’s Christmas

Richmond Olympic Oval kicks off the holiday season this weekend with the De Danaan Christmas Feis celebration starting Friday, Nov. 30. In traditional Gaelic spirit, the celebration features dance competitions, musical performances and a onewoman play. To begin, world-renowned Irish writer and performer Màire Clerkin stages her autobiographical comedy The Bad Arm: Confessions of a Dodgy Irish Dancer. “It’s a story about all kinds of issues that many people with no Irish dance background would relate to — sibling rivalry, difficult relationships with parents, teenage rebellion…identity confusion,” said Clerkin, who now lives in California. Irish folk group Beoga takes the stage the following night playing a traditional Irish sound with flavours from blues and jazz. “We try to keep the listener guessing and that means there are always plenty of twists and turns in the music, which helps keep it interesting,” said percussionist Eamon Murray. “It’s nice to be playing music that both young and old people can appreciate and want to come along to listen to.” As a feis is traditionally centered around dance, The De Danaan Society hosts its Irish Dancing competition on both the Saturday and Sunday, with the championships taking place on Saturday and the Grade Competitions on the Sunday. Richmondites can also check out workshops and crafts throughout the weekend such as with Beoga, Dancing Minds with Sean Connolly, Gaelic football demonstrations, Christmas crafts and jewelry. Tickets to the play and concert are $20 each, or $35

avid Adams returns to Gateway Theatre as Tevye, lead character in Fiddler on the Roof. We asked him:

Q. Why should people come see the show? Not only is the music some of the most memorable and tuneful, the story is so human and universal. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll feel a myriad of emotions as the sweeping story is told. There is some fabulous dancing, a wedding, births, deaths, celebrations, and tragedy—it’s got it all. It is arguably the greatest musical ever written! I also think the Gateway Theatre stage is one of the best in the country—it has the size for a large show, but is also very intimate at the same time— perfect for a show like Fiddler on the Roof! Q. What’s your favourite song in the show and why? ‘If I were a Rich Man’—because it’s Tevye’s signature song and because for every hard-working person who has ever wished for a ride on Easy Street, or wished they could have the means to make their lives easier and more fulfilled—this is our anthem!! Also, I love ‘Sunrise, Sunset’, because it reiterates the fact of the circle of life. Each day that dawns, brings opportunity for growth, for change, for betterment and each time the sun sets we have a chance to reflect on where we are. Q. Any closing thoughts? There are times when you know you are tackling a piece of theatre that has the potential to really ‘knock people’s socks off!’—and this is one of them! The combination of music and story, the universality of the personal struggles of the characters and the sheer joyful exuberance of the townsfolk in living life will be a life-affirming experience in the theatre for audience and performers alike! I can’t wait!!

Nutrition and Capacity: a Conference (who knew?) by Jack Micner

I attended a meeting earlier this week, where the main speaker discussed the importance of lawyers and doctors communicating more fully (in "the same jargon") about patient capacity. As life expectancy rises, and our population ages, more and more people will be living longer, and many will develop capacity troubles. What does capacity mean? In general, it refers to a person’s ability to understand what they are doing, and the consequences of what they do. For lawyers, capacity becomes especially significant when preparing Wills and incapacity planning documents, such as Powers of Attorney, Advance Directives and Representation Agreements. Many factors influence a person’s capacity. Age is certainly one of them. But I doubt that many people think of nutrition as affecting capacity -- when it may play a larger role than we think. Recent stories from a conference, and studies on the topic, made me think it is worth examining. The Conference “Issues in Nutritional Care of the Geriatric Patient” is the conference that took place earlier this month in Israel at a geriatric hospital. Like Canada, Israel has an aging population, and it is felt that properly feeding elderly patients will become a key practice in the future. At present, 10% of the population in Israel are elderly, and half suffer from two or more chronic diseases. Their health care costs constitute 30% of all public medical expenditures. Successful treatment will not only improve their quality of life, but also save medical costs. The elderly are thought to have different illnesses and different metabolism from children and adults. Again, I expect the situation is not too different here in Canada. Hospital treatment On admission to a hospital in Israel, patients are first seen by a dietitian. The dietitian determines (among other things) what the person likes to eat. The hospital serves three main meals and two smaller ones per day. Staff and family members are encouraged to feed patients by hand, rather than through a feeding tube. Research is being done on this practice as well. The clinical part Surprisingly, though many studies show that special diets limiting fat, salt, sugar or protein can be effective in treating chronic diseases, little information exists about the effects of a particular diet on elderly patients. Most of the research is done on persons under age 65. For some patients above 65, certain conditions require specific (controlled) levels of salt and sugar. A poor state of nutrition is in itself believed to be a risk factor for death. A properly fed patient will not become undernourished. It is common to serve pre-packaged frozen food to hospital patients, but at this particular hospital in Israel, the staff cook every meal, every day. There is a four-week cycle of menus. The patients like it. The texture of the food is tailored to each patient. There is also no waste. The staff watch patients for swallowing problems. There are, apparently, seven stages of swallowing food. Studies also show that elderly people survive longer if they are not thin. Furthermore, if their cholesterol level is a bit elevated, it’s actually protective, because too little fat may indicate poor nutrition. Weight loss is a bad sign, so patients in this situation are given cream and other high-calorie food. Meanwhile, too much salt (sodium) raises blood pressure and is harmful. So the staff try to achieve a balance, because too little salt is also harmful. One of the conference lecturers, a kidney specialist, discussed implications of low salt levels in a patient. Some sodium is necessary to maintain blood pressure and ensure the proper working of muscles and nerves. A drop in sodium levels can cause brain swelling. Symptoms of this condition range from confusion and irritability to coma and abnormal mental status. Thus, the sodium level in the body is a key indicator of a person’s overall condition. The body's vitamin D levels are also important. A lack of this vitamin has been linked to many diseases, including depression, cancer, MS, diabetes and Alzheimer’s. Legal implications? On a day-to-day basis, most people have capacity to understand incapacity planning documents and Wills. Some people obviously do not, and a lawyer will be able typically to determine that one way or another quickly. However, someone with capacity problems may not be able to understand the legal documents that they need to review and sign. They present in a way that leaves the lawyer uncertain as to whether they have capacity. For these people, some days can be better than others. I wonder, having read about this conference and the studies summarized, whether any individual with such capacity trouble may be undernourished or otherwise not receiving proper (or enough) food. In particular, I would think that a reasonable question for a lawyer who is meeting with a “questionable” patient (in terms of capacity), in a hospital or care facility, would be when the patient last had a meal, and whether the patient is being regularly fed. In such situations, returning in a day or two might be preferable, because if the patient has been properly fed, perhaps he or she will be in a regular state and therefore able to discuss and understand documents. It may be that food plays a more significant role in the elderly person’s overall state than we think.

Leave the world behind in Oahu, Honolulu BY LAUREN KRAMER Special to the News

Get off the plane in Honolulu and it’s easy to forget about everything else in the world. The ocean is that dreamy turquoise color, the weather is sublime and the opportunities to have fun are seemingly endless. Whether your idea of paradise is swimming with the dolphins, paddleboarding among the turtles, sipping cocktails on the beach or hiking up Diamond Head, Oahu’s combination of climate, warm water and lush, tropical beauty make the living feel easy. Within 12 hours of arrival we were on the water in a catamaran, looking out for spinner dolphins. When a pod of 60 was spotted two miles from shore, we pulled on our flippers and masks and jumped in to watch their graceful movements. With a visibility of 30 feet it was like stepping straight into an episode of National Geographic. Around us the dolphins vaulted out of the water, spinning and somersaulting before diving back into the depths. They performed a mesmerizing underwater ballet as they swam large concentric circles around and below us. Later, after we’d clambered back on the vessel, a pod of bottlenose dolphins put on a second show for us, playing, jumping and

cavorting in the wake of the catamaran. A few chased the bow, moving so close that we could hear their breathy exhalations as they broke the surface of the water. Their symmetry was exquisite, their movements graceful, deliberate and smooth. Our home base for a quick Hawaiian getaway is the Kahala Hotel & Resort. Situated away from the rush and bustle of Waikiki, close to Diamond Head mountain, the Kahala somehow manages to be luxurious, classy, welcoming and comfortable — without a hint of pretension — all at once. Built in 1964 on the ocean shores, the 338-room resort underwent a $50 million renovation a couple of years ago, adding Toto toilets that make going to the loo an exciting new experience for your derrière. Aside from its loos, the Kahala is well known for its five bottlenose dolphin stars, who swim in a pool of their own on the property and perform dutifully for guests who sign up for educational dolphin encounters. The dolphin pool is steps from the swimming pool, which in turn is a frisbee’s throw from the beach at the Kahala. When you need a reprieve from the water, the hotel offers complimentary bike rentals, perfect for exploring the mansions along Kahala avenue.

The Kahala Hotel & Resort is the jewel in the crown of Oahu’s hotel properties, which offers its own dolphin experience. Far right, the hike up Diamond Head gives perspective on Oahu’s exquisite views.

Over the next few days we explore the tourist-encrusted beaches of Waikiki, climbing cautiously onto paddleboards and learning to balance our way through the gentle swells without toppling off. We wake up before sunrise to hike the steep switchbacks of Diamond Head Mountain, a volcanic crater formed four million years ago. And later, we join the throng of locals at the KCC farmers’ market, where we taste fried green tomatoes and witness islandgrown avocadoes and mangoes twice the size of anything comparable back home. Different parts of the island have their own unique personalities, we soon discover. One of my favorite parts is the North Shore, an hour’s drive from Waikiki, where homes are fewer, the beaches emptier, more pristine

and the mountains lush and heavily forested. We peek into the gift shops and art galleries in the charming, rustic town of Hale’iwa, and grab a healthy lunch at a local bakery. Then it’s on towards Waimea along a coastal road that divides spectacular beaches on one side from a thick jungle that blankets the hills and mountains on the other. We surrender to the muggy Hawaiian heat and gratefully take a swim at Waimea Bay Beach Park. A light rain is falling, but the beachgoers don’t seem to mind.

SEDAN

VW’s Comfort Coupe stands out from crowd BY BRENDAN MCALEER Special to the News

Ever wonder why you drive a “sedan” while the neighbour has a “coupé” or perhaps a “cabriolet”? By and large, the nomenclature of automotive bodystyling comes from the terminology of horse-drawn carriages — cabriolet, for instance, comes from the French cabrioler (to prance or caper), and describes a lightweight two-seater with a

folding roof. Over the years, these horsey traditions transformed into the traditions of horsepower, adding in specific terms like roadster and speedster, and a rare favourite, the “shooting-brake”. While grey areas and overlap exist, for the most part, these descriptors are absolutes: a coupe has two doors; a sedan has four. However, with auto manufacturers always striving to

entice the buying dollar with something fresh, something new, something avant-garde, all the rules have gone out the window. Mercedes now makes a four-door shootingbrake that’s really a cramped wagon. BMW builds a “Gran Coupe” that’s a low-roofed four-door — with six-series pricing. The purist recoils, but then so must those long-lost horse-and-carriage types have been horrified at the noisy, loud and dangerous contraptions came speeding along the formerly quiet and leafy lanes. How then, to properly react to this, the Passat’s sleeker cousin? Volkswagen has dubbed it the CC for “Comfort Coupe.” The question: is it a handsome cab, or merely a hackney cash-grab?

row, broadened grille treatment, flanked by bi-xenon headlights with standard LED running lights — a feature stolen from Audi. There’s a smoothing out of the front bumper and hood, a re-sculpting of the side-skirts and a slightly less rounded treatment for the rear tail-lights. VW nuts might notice the differences, everybody else will simply ask, “Are you sure that’s a Volkswagen?”

Environment

Popping open the frameless-window’d door (roll down the windows and the front doors at least are coupe-like), the inside of the CC is quite clearly differentiated from the North American market Passat. Remember, VW recently pumped up the volume for Canadian and American consumers, making their mid-size sedan bigger than its European couterpart. The interior of the CC on the other hand, is a more direct link to the high-precision Germanic build quality VW-enthusiasts know and love. The cabin is very well put-together, Audi-esque in build quality and in materials. The two-tone seats are particularly nice (with deep side-bolsters, which may not be everyone’s cup of tea), as is the aluminium-style trim. Naturally, shaving inches off the roofline results in somewhat lowered headroom, but not that you’d notice up front. In back, there’s enough space for those up to the 5’10” mark (and not much beyond), but not if you have to plum yourself in the middle seat. Incidentally, it’s a change for the CC this year: previous models were four-seater only, the new ’13 model will be all five-seater for the Canadian market. Trunk space is also excellent — really, there’s not much to find fault with over the larger Passat. It might be cosier inside the CC due to its smaller footprint, but a more cockpit-like feel is surely desirable in a sports sedan. One minor irritation: the chunky key which must be slotted into the dash to start the car — at this price-point, where is the dratted pushbutton starter? Actually, two minor irritations: I can’t say I’m a fan of the new VW group craze for the electric parking brake.

Performance

Underneath my tester’s tweaked hood lies the ubiq-

uitous four-cylinder two-litre turbocharged engine that VW crams in everything from the GTi to the Tiguan to the coffee machine in the Wolfsburg factory breakroom. If you’ve experienced one, you’ve experienced them all: gutsy, grumbly, charming if not particularly smooth. Stuffing a 200hp four-pot underneath the nose of an admittedly swoopy mid-size sedan doesn’t seem like a recipe for thrills in these heady days of 270+hp Toyota Camrys. However, the numbers only tell half the story. Like the Jetta GLi, the CC drives like a much smaller car than it actually is. Slot the quick-shifting DSG gearbox into sport, and the car wakes up and grips through the corners with a surprising amount of zip. If you’re wondering, the more-powerful V6 model isn’t half as much fun — the joy here is in the perfect pairing of lightweight fourcylinder turbo and snappy transmission. Of course, there are limits to the fun. Despite feeling very well-sorted indeed, the CC is no GTi nor GLi. Even so, it drives well enough to justify the price premium over the regular Passat, think of it as getting the more stylish interior and exterior thrown in for free.

Features

Both the $35,125 Sportline and next-step-upthe-rung $39,975 Highline are available with the 2.0T engine. Standard features include Bluetooth handsfree, bi-xenon headlamps with adaptive curve-following, iPod connectivity, and a rearview backup camera. The Highline alone can be specc’d up with the 280hp V6 engine, though you lose the dual-clutch DSG in favour of a regular automatic transmission which is serviceable but not as quick-witted. Bumping up to the Highline also adds attractive turbine-style 18” alloys, proper leather seat insets, and has a Panoramic sunroof as standard (this is a $1400 option on the Sportline). A $2,200 Technology package incorporates touchscreen navigation and a 10speaker, 600-watt Dynaudio premium sound-system. The top-of-the-range V6 Highline hits the scales at $48,475 and includes all previous options as standard, along with that 3.6L powerhouse. Fuel economy is officially 10.2L/100kms city and 6.4L/100kms on the highway.

Sports Sockeyes continue to thrive in Delta’s rink

One thing is for certain when the Richmond Sockeyes and Delta Ice Hawks square off this season. Bet on the road team. The Sockeyes’ only two losses on home ice have been to their cross-town rivals. On Tuesday, they returned the favour for the second straight time to take over first place in the Tom Shaw Conference of the Pacific International Junior Hockey League. Dean Allison’s second goal of the night broke a 2-2 tie 33 seconds into the final period and Rudi Thorsteinson added a pair of insurance tallies as the Sockeyes extended their win streak to five games with a 5-2 triumph at the Ladner Leisure Centre. The Sockeyes (17-4-0-1) also received terrific goaltending from Kootenay Alder who turned aside 35 shots. Daniell Lang had the other. Brent Chreptyk and Tanner Gattinger scored for the Ice Hawks. Richmond has been shut out by Scott Lapp in both meetings against Delta at Minoru Arena. However, they have now outscored the Hawks 9-3 in Ladner. The Sockeyes were slated to host Grandview last night and the two teams meet again on Sunday afternoon at the Burnaby Winter Club.

Clarke scores pair for Canada Richmond’s Caleb Clarke scored in each half as Canada’s U20 men’s soccer team concluded a 10-day camp with a 2-0 victory over Costa Rica on Wednesday. Canada is currently preparing for the CONCACAF U20 Championship which runs from Feb. 18 to Mar. 3 in Puebla, Mexico. The event will qualify four teams for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup inTurkey. The team will regroup in February for a pre-tournament camp.

The Sockeyes visit Grandview on Sunday.

Canadians off to Prince George after lopsided wins over Blazers

The Greater Vancouver Canadians will get a better idea how they stack up among the heavyweights in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League when they travel to Prince George this weekend. After feasting on the 1-17-0 Thompson Blazers with a pair of 7-2 victories at the Richmond Olympic Oval, the 9-7-2 Canadians will head north to take on the 15-3-0 Cariboo Cougars. The Canadians will be attempting to hand the Cougars their first loss of the season at the CN Centre where they have racked up eight straight victories. A trio of Seafair graduates led the Canadians in

their opening win over the Blazers as the hosts built up a 7-0 lead before the visitors finally got on the board. Austin Adamson had a pair of goals, while Glenn Gawdin added a goal and one assist. Alec Dawydiak chipped in with three helpers. Other goal scorers included Andrew Kluckas, Alex Whitwman and Phoenix Worth. Adam Musil had a pair of helpers. Game two of the series was more of the same with Greater Vancouver scoring five times in the opening period. Dawydiak ignited the outburst just 26 seconds into the contest. Justin Szeto, Gawdin, Adamson and Musil also scored in the period. Jacob Wozney had a

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Wisdom and gentle love, compassion, social rituals, far travel, higher education, publishing and intellectual pursuits fill your days. (Or at least tap you on the shoulder, as you can “tune out” such good things by working too hard, being too angry, etc.) Spend Sunday at home or in nature, resting, supervising kids. This night through Tuesday bring romance, creative and speculative urges, love of children, beauty and pleasure. These three days could mark a new relationship opportunity – so could Friday/Saturday. Tackle chores midweek. You’re ambitious, but don’t test higher-ups. Taurus April 20-May 20: Mysteries confront you. Solving them could open a profit – or someone’s heart. Investment opportunities abound – the best of these might involve 1) a partner, or 2) your own earnings picture. (E.g., invest in a machine to help you work; or in your education to get you on a higher earnings plateau.) Relationships with others remain active, talkative and affectionate. A “lust affair” might begin. Beware violating social, moral or legal boundaries now to Dec. 26. Avoid lawyers and lawsuits. Home calls you Monday/Tuesday. Romance or creative urges, midweek. Tackle chores Friday on. Gemini May 21-June 20: Relationships – and opportunities – are front and centre. This is no time to retreat or stand in the background. Be forward, approach people, make friends or chase love prospects. Others will welcome you, be glad to see you – unless you demand, insist or attempt to take advantage. A prospect or opportunity from the past (perhaps one you pursued last summer, early fall – or one from 1999) hovers around you: it will be “ready to go” February onward. (Meantime, dream, plan.) Your yearning for friendship, blocked for some months, will produce results soon. Romance, sort of, late week.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Work and health themes fill the few weeks ahead. Eat and dress sensibly; avoid sudden temperature changes and driving with the window open. If a romance began last month, it remains vibrant. All relationships heat up through Dec. 25, so be diplomatic. You could form a career/ business partnership, at least for a while. Career opportunities abound, though they need a flexible, diplomatic approach. Your energy, charisma remain high Sunday.Chase money,buy/sell Monday/Tuesday. Travel, errands, communications fill midweek. Head home Friday/Saturday – strengthen family ties. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Romance, creative and speculative urges, love of children, beauty and pleasure fill the weeks ahead. Take a risk, express yourself – and your heart – to a lover, child or spouse (or world, if you’re creative). A love affair could start, perhaps with someone you met in a group setting a while ago. (This one might have difficulty reaching a wedding.) Work demands intensify – practice safety. Rest, lie low Sunday. Your charisma soars Monday/ Tuesday – impress someone! Chase money, buy/sell midweek. Errands, calls, visits, news, casual friends and paperwork fill Friday/Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your home, parent/ child relations, foundations, security, garden and nature, nutrition, stomach, soul, retirement – these are featured until late December. Be patient with career and other ambitious areas – a waiting, “gestation” period lasts all winter. Your social life continues to be interesting: friends amuse, but intensity and sexual attraction send their arrows also. Sunday’s happy, optimistic. Retreat, rest and contemplate Monday/Tuesday. Your energy surges midweek – start significant projects, especially in those “home” areas listed above. Chase money Friday/Saturday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This is a busy but not important month. Chase money this week – buy/ sell, pursue new clients, ask for a pay raise or extra work, etc. Your home holds friction to late month. A relationship might break up. Take this in stride, remain diplomatic, gentle – toward children, too. A legal, educational or far travel project is on hold (until February) but many short excursions will soothe your wanderlust. Your hopes and popularity rise Monday/Tuesday – a light romance might begin. Retreat, rest and contemplate midweek. Your energy, charisma soar on a bumpy Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Chase money for the next few weeks. Add to your possessions. Buy/sell, seek new clients, nudge the boss for a pay raise, find extra work, etc. A spouse, partner or “third party” (or investment) might be beneficially involved – especially if a deal or introduction initially began before last October. Sunday’s gentle, thoughtful. Be ambitious Monday (best) and Tuesday. Midweek raises your hopes, brings popularity and social joys, and might fulfill a wish (perhaps involving travel, communication, friendship – and your work place). Retreat Friday/Saturday: rest, contemplate. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and clout are at a yearly high – you can attract that person who attracts you. A Gemini “mirrors you.” Start significant projects, venture forth, ask favours, meet people, see and be seen. Sunday contains secrets, but it’s unlikely they’ll yield to investigation. A wise, gentle mood flows over you Monday/Tuesday. Love could begin – so could a publishing venture, international journey, higher education or cultural event. Be ambitious mid-week, show higher-ups what you can do. Social delights, popularity, optimism and wish fulfillment Friday/ Saturday!

Dec. 2 - Dec. 8, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Recuperate to late December – rest, retreat, follow spiritual or charitable paths, deal with government agencies, institutions and corporate administrations. You might be asked to join a committee – accept, gladly; it can improve your employment prospects. Invest in warehousing or assembly lines, or a vacation retreat. Protect health and reputation: eat, dress and act sensibly. Avoid sudden temperature changes. Monday (better) and Tuesday bring investment opportunities, lifestyle decisions and health concerns. Mellow wisdom midweek. Be carefully ambitious Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: You’re going to love December. Popularity, social delights, wish fulfillment, new horizons and hopes, new plans and new friends – these “visit” you until Dec, 21. Live for the future this month. This week, remain ambitious: a cohort or boss has important, beneficial information or status to bestow on you. Until the 25th, guard your reputation: DO NOT gossip nor speak with unsavoury people. Tackle routine chores Sunday. Exciting meetings – or love interludes – buoy your mood Monday/Tuesday and Friday/Saturday. In-between, you touch deep regions in sex, finances or health. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Be ambitious this month – but realize your larger and longer-term fortune (through next June) lies in the opposite direction: home, real estate, retirement, “stopping,” security and humility. (E.g., you could quit a 60K job but make twice that on a piece of land.) You still feel enlightened, at peace, this week. Sunday’s for beauty, pleasure and passion: but (temporarily) there doesn’t seem to be anyone to lay that passion on. Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings exciting meetings, new horizons. Sex and $ depths Friday/Saturday: be a detective. Avoid unsafe sex. timstephens@shaw.ca
