Food Action Committee member. “This funding will help improve ac-

cess to locally grown, affordable food for a signiÂżcant cross section of local residents.â€? The Cranbrook Food Action Committee will be the advisory committee, while the Community Connections Society of Southeast BC will provide Âżnancial management of the project. The project seeks to engage senior involvement directly in the development and maintenance of the garden and will work toward integrating youth, seniors and families together at this neighbourhood gathering place. The project also seeks to promote healthy seniors by providing them with access to locally grown fruits and vegetables. The next step is for the Cranbrook Food Action Committee to work with Cranbrook City Council and administration to identify and approve a location for the project. “This is good news for residents of Cranbrook and on behalf of Council I want to congratulate the Cranbrook Food Action Committee on securing the grant,â€? says Cranbrook Mayor Wayne Stetski. “I look forward to seeing this initiative develop and grow into a true community endeavour bringing youth, seniors and families together. Producing more of our food locally is important for a sustainable future.â€? The C.F.A.C will seek the assistance and partnership with a number of other community groups, including the City of Cranbrook as the planning and development of the Public Produce Project moves forward.

Hungry For Life gala and auction helps those less fortunate

PHOTO SUBMITTED

A medical clinic in Haiti built by humanitarian support. Submitted Recently, over 200 people viewed Chelsea McCormack’s documentary ¿lm, “Through Human Eyes” at the Key City Theatre. The ¿lm documents the

struggles of the Haitian community and highlights the humanitarian efforts of Dr. Bob Cutler and other “Cranbrooktonians”. For over a decade local business owner Rick Klassen and Cut-

ler have returned to this small Caribbean country numerous times. Cutler has led teams of doctors, nurses and lay people to assist with food aid, the building and rebuilding of homes and educational structures, drilling of water wells and a new, free standing medical clinic. “In the near term it comes down to saving lives,” said Cutler. “Long term it’s about building capacity with the Haitian people to meet their own challenges.” Klassen agrees. “Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. They just don’t have the organi-

zation or infrastructure of a ¿rst world nation to deal with the type of devastation they’ve endured --political instability, earthquake, Àoods, cholera and mass homelessness.” Klassen points out that their work continues to be possible because of yearly support from the Cranbrook Community. “Cranbrook donations, our annual Gala and auction fundraiser and numerous volunteers make it possible for us to deliver some hope and the means to rebuild stability. The Cranbrook medical community, business community and concerned citizens have all stepped up to make a

An Italian wine odyssey La Dolce Vita By Lorne Eckersley

A few weeks ago I spent a very pleasant Friday evening in Calgary, ¿ghting the crowd to sample from among more than 100 different Italian wines. The venue was Willow Park Wines and Spirits (WPPS) in Calgary. It the country’s largest retailer of wines and spirits and almost certainly among its leaders in organizing events and educational opportunities. Before I settled into a random sampling of red wines, I tasted a couple Proseccos, those lovely white bubbly wines that lend themselves to celebrations. Their light, subtle Àavours would be lost if I sampled them after drinking the bigbodied and more overt red wines that were my primary interest. The festival was set up in what once served as the WPPS basement warehouse. Twentyone tables were set up, each staffed with one or two people, who are typically sales reps for wine importers. Most are knowledgeable and more than happy to talk about just about any aspect of wine. I am mostly a red wine guy and, having spent time in Italy, I have my favourites. But it is great fun to have the opportunity to sample wines I haven’t tried. Interestingly, looking back at my notes, of the two wines I put at the very top of the list, one was familiar to me and one wasn’t. My notation of “Best!”

was placed beside the listing on my program for Zenato Amarone. I suspect that my enthusiasm was at least partly due to the fact that I have met Alberto Zenato, son of the winery’s founder. As well, Amarone is a great wine for people who love big, and I mean BIG, red wines. Of¿cially, it’s called Amarone della Valpolicella. The wines are made in the Veneto region in northeastern Italy, from corvine, rondinella and molinara grape varieties. What makes Amarone unique isn’t so much the grapes, but in how they are handled after harvest. Traditionally, grape bunches were picked, then laid on straw mats to allow them to shrivel and dry, leaving a concentrated and intensively Àavoured juice after pressing. Tannins and colours are also intensi¿ed in the drying process, which can last four months. Modern production methods now dictate that the drying is primarily done in kilns, which reduces the likelihood of moulds like botrytis. One of the cool things about Italian winemakers is that they took the process of making Amarone one step further and began to use the lees, too. Added to the lees-- seeds and skins— is regular Valpolicella wine, and a secondary fermentation is allowed to take place. The result is Ripasso, more intense in Àavor than Valpolicello but lighter than Amarone. It is a happy medium that is priced somewhere between the

two and can be a nice option for those who like red wines with intense Àavours, but don’t want to spend $50 and upwards for a bottle of Amarone. At the WPWS tasting, I enjoyed each of the Amarones I tasted, but none more than the Zenato offering. Another wine I particularly enjoyed was Donna Olimpia 1998 Bolgheri, a Tuscan wine made from grapes that are typically found in Bordeaux and Meritage wines. Merlot, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot are blended, then aged in French oak barrels for 24 months and given another six months to age in the bottle before their release. Bolgheri should raise eyebrows among Italian wine drinkers because it is the region where the famed Sassicaia wines are made. Super Tuscans is the term used to describe wines made in the Chianti region that don’t meet the Chianti requirement of containing at least 70 per cent sangiovese grapes. The climate lends itself to growing merlot and cab sauv, though, and these wines can be spectacular and very, very pricy. The Donna Olimpia version could be best described as the poor, but still very tasty, cousin to Sassicaia. I should also mention that the WPWS Italian Wine Festival also offered a mouth-watering selection of snacks, ranging from bread and cheese to roast pork and meatballs. Italian wine is, after all, made to enjoy with food.

Province to introduce legislation to end dispute with teachers Black Press B.C. Education Minister George Abbott announced Thursday that he intends to introduce legislation next week to end the dispute with public school teachers. The decision comes labour ministry of¿cial Trevor Hughes reported that a negotiated settlement between the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the government’s bargaining agent, the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association, would be unlikely. B.C. Liberal house leader Rich Coleman said the legislation

could be presented as early as mid-week, but the debate on the provincial budget would take precedence until next Thursday unless there is an emergency situation. Abbott said legislative options are being prepared that would reÀect the government’s net-zero mandate of no wage increases for public sector employees. “We have three-quarters of public employees, with 100-plus contracts negotiated with the net zero mandate,” Abbott said. “We have to proceed on that basis.”

The BCTF had proposed a three-year contract that would see teachers given a 15 per cent increase over that span. BCTF estimates the contract will cost an extra $300 million per year, however BCPSEA pegs that number at upwards of $500 million in the ¿rst year alone. Teachers across the province have been doing essential service only since September, refusing to meet with school administration, supervise students during breaks or complete report cards. Teachers have been without a contract since June

vs

2011. BCTF president Susan Lambert said her earlier call for mediation in the dispute is an unusual step for any union. “Teachers are looking for fair alternatives, such as mediation or even arbitration, to help the parties ¿nd a resolution to this dispute,” Lambert said. Abbott said he would consider mediation for non-monetary issues,

but with the two sides $2 billion apart on wages and bene¿ts, that approach would not work for the monetary dispute. He said arbitration that would “cut the loaf in half” would not be consistent with the net zero mandate and the government will not consider it. NDP education critic Robin Austin said the government should appoint a mediator to “go in and crack some

Wheat: the un-staff-of-life Wheat holds an elevated status in our culture as being a fundamental part of our diet and a key source of nutrition for people of all ages. Sadly, this could not be further from the truth. Modern wheat is Franken-grain that has been genetically altered from the healthy form that our forebears used for generations into a mutant grain that promotes allergy, obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Prior to the 1970’s wheat still existed in its original, native form. During the 70’s the agriculturalindustrial complex began transforming native wheat into dwarf wheat that grows quickly and provides higher yields. When you consider the adverse impact that dwarf wheat now has on our health, the experiment can only be considered a failure. Dwarf wheat contains very high levels of a compound called amylopectin. This complex starch is very dense and, when digested, releases large quantities of sugar causing a rapid increase in blood sugar.

When blood sugar levels spike a whole cascade of disease promoting events occur. Most significantly, insulin is poured into the blood to try and move blood sugar into the cell. Insulin is a compound that promotes inflammation, like pouring gas on a fire. In fact, having high insulin levels increases your risk for heart disease by 16 times (compared to elevated cholesterol which increases your risk by 4 times). Modern wheat also contains large quantities of gliadin, a protein that makes up gluten and promotes allergy and sensitivity. Sometimes the symptoms are obvious, more often they are insidious causing symptoms that may go unrecognized for years. If you are bloated, feel like you live in a fog, are tired and can’t lose weight, you might have an allergy to wheat. Whether you have an allergy or not, wheat is a food that you would be healthier without. For more information on this topic read a book called The Wheat Belly.

ROCKIES FILM FESTIVAL l March 1-3

15th Annua Monsieur Lazhar Academy Award Nominee Best Foreign Language Film Philippe Falardeau Cast: Fellag, Sophie Nelisse, Émilien Neron Run Time: 94 minutes Country: Canada Year: 2011 Language: French with English subtitles Directed by acclaimed ¿lmmaker Philippe Falardeau (Congorama, It’s Not Me, I Swear!) and from the producers of last year’s Academy Award®–nominated Incendies, Monsieur Lazhar is one of the most gripping Québécois ¿lms of the last decade. The ¿lm has already received extraordinary atten¬tion, including Best Ca-

nadian Feature Film at the 2011 Toronto International Film Fes¬tival® as well as being named as Canada’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film at the 84th Academy Awards. Following the tragic and shocking death of a Montreal schoolteacher, Bachir Lazhar (Fellag) – a middle-aged Algerian immigrant seeking political refuge in Quebec - swiftly pursues the opportunity to ¿ll the sudden vacancy and come to the aid of the over¬worked principal and students affected by this tragedy. To these children in shock, Lazhar’s traditional teaching methods may well provide the structure they need. As more information about Lazhar’s own history is revealed,

his struggles and experi¬ences make him all the better suited to guide these children into adulthood. Monsieur Lazhar is further proof of Falardeau’s talent for drawing out depth and precision from child actors. The ¿ne performances reÀect the authenticity of the characters, and the story illustrates how adult hypocrisy and little white lies about death can turn a child’s world upside down when fate strikes. A complex character study of loss, innocence and imposture, Mon¬sieur Lazhar is a resplendent and tender tale about the lessons we learn from one another, regardless of age. Bachir has much to gain from his pupils, and so do we.

Léa Pool With: Barbara Brenner, Barbara Ehrenreich, Samantha King Run Time: 98 minutes Country: Canada Year: 2011 Language: English Premiering at the 2011 Toronto Interna¬tional Film Festival®, Léa Pool’s incendiary and profoundly troubling Pink Ribbons, Inc. begins on a sunny day in San Fran¬cisco as thousands of people, primarily women, prepare for a gruelling two-day run to raise money for a cure for breast cancer. Those involved are in extremely high spir¬its, both from the sense of community and the devout belief that they’re engaged in a righteous activity. As the ¿lm proceeds and Pool explores the history of breast cancer treatment,

Albert Nobbs

Academy Award Nominee Best Actress – Glenn Close Rodrigo García Cast: Glenn Close, Mia Wasikowska, Janet McTeer, Aaron Johnson, Brendan Gleeson Run Time: 108 minutes Country: United Kingdom/Ireland Year: 2011 Language: English A ¿lm ¿fteen years in the making, Albert Nobbs is the highly anticipated feature by acclaimed director Rodrigo García (Mother and Child). A Gala Presentation at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival®, and based on the stage play of the same name, Albert Nobbs is a moving and effectual por¬trait of one woman’s struggle with personal identity and self

assurance in 19th century Ireland. Glenn Close (“Damages”, Evening) stars as the titular character, in what will arguably become one of the most celebrated perfor¬mances of her career. Working as a butler in a high-end hotel in Dublin, Nobbs lives an intensely private and solitary life, closely guarding a secret. When a stranger is hired on to paint the interior of the hotel, Nobbs ¿nds herself forced to share a room with the overbearing gentleman, and the surpris¬ing truth quickly emerges. Terri¿ed by what this possible exposure could mean, Nobbs quickly discovers they have more in com¬mon than meets the eye – both are women, who for very different reasons, have decided to live their lives disguised as men. With this in common, the two form a fast

key fundraising bodies and the presentation of breast cancer campaigns in media, each return to the run makes the effort seem more problematic. Pink Ribbons, Inc. focuses primarily on the increased involvement of corporations in fundraising campaigns — which goes as far as outright ownership in some cases — and the impact it has had on the charities. According to the ¿lm, the undue emphasis on awareness and the search for a cure has skewed the types of research being done. A doctor explains how there’s little data on the cause of breast cancer. Which raises the question: how do you cure something if you don’t know what causes it? One of the central issues in the ¿lm is the disease’s status as the poster child

friendship, and Nobbs begins to dream of a life similar to that of her new friend’s – complete with a home, a shop, and a wife to call her own. Albert Nobbs is a fascinating character study that offers a glimpse into one indi¬vidual’s personal struggle with gender and identity. Reprising the role she made famous on the stage, Close delivers an understated and remarkable performance as a lonely and lost individual struggling to ¿nd hap¬piness amidst a bleak existence. With a supporting cast of characters that includes Mia Wasikowska (Restless, Jane Eyre), Janet McTeer (Tideland), Aaron Johnson (Nowhere Boy), and Brendan Gleeson (The Guard, In Bruges), Albert Nobbs is certain to be a hit among critics and audiences alike.

for what activist Barbara Brenner deems “cause mar¬keting,” a kind of microcosmic variation on disaster capitalism, rife with hypocrisy and awash in money. From car manufacturers to fast food companies to professional sports leagues, corporations have wholeheartedly embraced the effort — but many of the cam¬paigns to raise money have done more for the companies than for the cause. Fuelled by informative and often chilling interviews with activists, patients, former patients and writers (including authors Barbara Ehren¬reich and Samantha King, who wrote one of the ¿rst studies of the “industry”), Pink Ribbons, Inc. is a ferocious and infuriating exposé, bound to incite discussions about a subject particular to our times.

ROCKIES March FILM1-3FESTIVAL

l a u n n A h t 15 Carnage Roman Polanski Cast: Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, John C. Reilly, Christoph Waltz Run Time: 80 minutes Country: France/Germany/Poland/ Spain Year: 2011 Language: English In his follow-up to 2010’s The Ghost Writer, director Roman Polanski returns with his caustic and witty new ¿lm Carnage. Adapted from Yasmina Reza’s 2009 Tony-winning play God of Carnage, and featuring a top-notch cast of Jodie Foster (The Beaver, The Brave One), Kate Winslet (Revolution¬ary Road, The Reader), John C. Reilly (the upcoming We Need To Talk About Kevin, Cyrus) and Christoph Waltz (Water for Ele¬phants, Inglourious Basterds,), Carnage is a captivat-

ing and explosively comic study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct. Set in contemporary Brooklyn, Carnage centres on two couples who meet to discuss a playground ¿ght between two of their chil¬dren. Harried corporate lawyer Alan (Waltz) and his put-upon wife Nancy (Winslet), a successful-Àying broker, visit the apartment of Michael (Reilly), an amiable wholesaler, and Penelope (Foster), a self-consciously liberal writer, to discuss, logically and ami¬ably, how to deal with the boys. However, as the evening wears on, the parents become increasingly childish and combative; words become weapons, prejudices rise to the sur¬face and the meeting soon collapses into a storm of anger, recriminations, drunken¬ness and vio-

lence. Unfolding in real time, Polanski nimbly keeps the action Àowing with an active cam¬era that avoids the feeling of a play captured on ¿lm. Instead, its single-set con¿nement (the story essentially takes place over 80 minutes in one location) recalls Polanski’s similarly claustrophobic studies of urban alienation and psychic disintegration in Repulsion, Rosemary’s Baby and The Ten¬ant. It is also a master class in acting, and it’s a pure pleasure to watch the thespian one-upmanship as each character strives to dominate a deteriorating scenario. Carnage is ultimately a dark comedy about losing one’s manners. Alternately uproarious and devastating, it convincingly lays bare the darker tendencies of human nature.

Café de Flore

Jean-Marc Vallée Cast: Vanessa Paradis, Kevin Parent, Hélène Florent Run Time: 120 minutes Country: Canada Year: 2011 Language: French with English subtitles Jean-Marc Vallée, one of Canada’s most com¬pelling ¿lmmakers, returned to the Toronto International Film Festival® this year with a Special Presentation of his ¿lm, Café de Àore – arguably his most personal ¿lm to date. Following his British period drama, Film Circuit favourite The Young Victoria, Vallée returns to French-language ¿lmmaking with this unconventional love story in which two narratives are rhythmically woven together to create a tale of emotion and destiny. Set in present-day Montreal, the ¿rst story focuses on Antoine (Kevin Par-

ent), a suc¬cessful DJ and divorced father of two girls who is wildly infatuated with his girlfriend Rose (Evelyne Brochu, Polytechnique). How¬ever, Antoine still has extremely strong ties to his ex, Carole (Hélène Florent), and it’s evi¬dent they are not entirely over one another. Carole harbours a secret belief that Antoine will return to her, as their eldest daughter torments her father by blaring her parents’ de¿ning love song at every opportunity. The second story takes place in Paris in 1969. Jacqueline (Vanessa Paradis, Heart¬breaker) is the ¿ercely devoted single mother of Laurent, a young boy with Down syn¬drome. With her son’s life expectancy limited to 25 years, Jacqueline dedicates every spare moment to enriching and prolonging his life. Their days are rituals of school drop-offs, affectionate kisses and Laurent’s constant request to listen to the jazz album “Café de

Le Havre Aki Kaurismäki Cast: Kati Outinen, André Wilms, JeanPierre Darroussin Run Time: 93 minutes Country: Finland Year: 2011 Language: French with English subtitles No other contemporary ¿lmmaker manages to blend deadpan, ironic humour with social commentary in quite the same manner as Finnish master Aki Kaurismäki (The Man Without a Past). An of¿cial selection of the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival®, Le Havre has received overwhelming critical acclaim, and has recently been named Fin¬land’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film for the 84th Academy Awards®.

In Le Havre, the moody, retro ambiance of the ¿lm’s titular Norman port city enhances a tidy plot that blends the noir-like ele¬ments of a Jean-Pierre Melville ¿lm with the gentle humanism of Jean Renoir at his best. Atmospheric, quiet and completely assured, Kaurismäki employs these diverse elements to tell a highly contemporary story about illegal refugees, a subject of immediate rel¬evance in today’s Europe. The ¿lm circles around Marcel Marx, a warm, aging bohemian artist who has retreated to the French port city of Le Havre and taken up work as a shoeshine man - a profession with a limited future, as every¬one seems to be wearing running shoes. He is married to a woman with a heart of gold and, despite their poverty and limited means, he ¿nds joy

in their local neighbours, all of whom seem as if they have emerged intact from a 1930s movie. One day, Marcel befriends Idrissa, a young African immigrant hoping to make his way to England in a ship¬ping container with other illegals. Marcel is determined to extend a helping hand to the wide-eyed boy, but the law, in the form of Inspector Monet, is equally determined to stand in his way. An intricate dance of hide-and-seek ensues, Marcel using all his ingenuity to hide Idrissa while the nefarious Monet keeps hot on the trail. Kaurismäki’s humour is always inclusive, insightful and intelligent, here deployed to assist what is in effect a realistic fairy tale. As with all fairy tales, surprises abound along the way.

Àore.” When a young girl who also has Down syndrome joins Laurent’s class, Jacqueline’s tightly woven world begins to fray. As it did in Vallée’s hit C.R.A.Z.Y., music plays a crucial role in Café de Àore, encap¬sulating the characters’ memories and emotions, forming the soundtracks to their lives and fervently ¿lling the edges of the screen. It seems initially that music is the only link between the two stories, but as Carole’s nightmares and sleepwalking inten¬sify, we begin to sense that she is connected to Jacqueline in a much deeper way. Viewers who only know him for the stately The Young Victoria may be taken aback by the ¿lm’s unÀinching sexuality, which is elegantly captured yet raw. With its superbly paced Àuidity, Café de Àore possesses an undeni¬able musicality: its layered, rhythmic beat mixing together two powerful tales of love and loss.

A Separation Academy Award Nominee – Best Foreign Language Film Asghar Farhadi Cast: Peyman Moaadi, Leila Hatami, Sareh Bayat Run Time: 123 minutes Country: Iran Year: 2011 Language: Persian with English subtitles Transcending cultural and religious bar¬riers to present a fascinating portrait of contemporary Iran, A Separation is Asghar Farhadi’s Divorce, Persian Style. Screen¬ing at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival® the ¿lm has already received acco¬lades from critics and audiences around

the globe , leading to its selection as Iran’s Best Foreign Language Film entry for the 84th Academy Awards®. Nader (Peyman Moaadi) and Simin (Leila Hatami) are well-behaved middle-class Iranian citizens. They ¿ght quietly, hold decent jobs and prefer to resolve their domestic differences in court. But they only comfort themselves with such courtesy because they might be a little too civilized to let their real feelings show. After Nader refuses to emigrate from Iran (a move that would provide a brighter future for their offspring), Simin ¿les for divorce. Retreat¬ing to her mother’s house, Nader hires

As Razieh’s “condition” starts getting in the way of her job, Nader allows the worst aspects of his repressed nature to emerge - resulting in Razieh’s uncivilized termination and even more courtroom headaches. As Nader’s entire family is drawn into an unprecedented feud, Far¬hadi continues his devilishly clever turning of narrative tables, selectively revealing new details and forcing the viewer to con¬tinually reassess

each character. With extraordinary performances by an outstanding cast, A Separation delivers Farhadi’s best work to date; a maze of nar¬rative intrigue and complex emotion in which everyone is both innocent and guilty, depending on where you stand.

Academy Award Nominee – Best Documentary Feature Film Wim Wenders With: Dancers of the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch Run Time: 103 minutes Country: Germany/ France Year: 2011 Language: German, Russian, Italian, French, Slovenian, Korean, Spanish, Portuguese with English subtitles Making its Canadian debut at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival®, Pina, the breathtaking new ¿lm from cinematic master Wim Wenders, came very close to not being made at all. Shortly before shooting was scheduled to begin in 2009, the ¿lm’s subject, choreographer and artistic genius Pina Bausch, died suddenly - just days after being diagnosed with cancer. Director Wim Wenders (The Buena Vista Social Club, Wings of Desire), a virtuoso in his own

way and one of Germany’s most illustrious postwar ¿lm¬makers, almost abandoned the project, but when Bausch’s superb dance troupe decided to continue on, so did he – the result of which is this visually stunning and magni¿¬cent tribute to a talented artist. Bausch’s absence is felt throughout, but the ¿lm is in no way a traditional documen¬tary. The troupe’s trademark dances and Bausch’s amazing choreography become the heart and soul of this beautifully imag¬ined homage to one of the world’s great artists. With amazing skill and technique, Wenders opens up each dance, employing the streets and parks of Wuppertal — where Bausch’s company, Tanztheater Wuppertal, is based — as exciting backdrops to some of her best-known productions. Her version of Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring” is justly famous; dancers leave traces of their

move¬ments in earth. Equally ¿ne is “Café Mueller,” where, in a dreamlike trance, dancers move with eyes closed to Purcell-scored music. For the equally imaginative “Vollmond,” set designer Peter Pabst provided an onstage waterfall through which the performers dance. “Kontakthof” allows Wenders his own directorial moment: he shoots this piece in three versions, each time using dancers of a different age. The sheer joy, abandon and physicality of Bausch’s choreography are on full display here, and Wenders has done a masterful job capturing the essence of her work. Pina is a revelation – a haunting elegy that is entranc¬ing and truly inspiring. “Pina brings new meaning to the notion of a leap of faith, and new immediacy to ¿lmed dance.” – Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal

ments. It’s easy to do – just arrange with your bank to deduct a speci¿ed amount from your savings or chequing account on a regular basis and contribute it to your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP), Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) or non-registered portfolio. Investing small amounts makes it easier to contribute. Ten

percent of your earned income each month is recommended but you could also choose to invest weekly, biweekly, or quarterly. Here’s what you would gain from PAC-ing $250 into your RRSP every month: • At a compound annual rate of 8 per cent you’ll have $354,230 of pre-tax assets after thirty years.1 • If you wait until the end of each year and invest a lump sum of

www.kootenayadvertiser.com A13 $3,000, you’ll have only $339,850. • So, by PAC-ing each month, you add potentially $14,380 to your retirement fund without costing you one additional penny! What happens if you don’t PAC or come up with a lump sum $3,000 to invest each year? You’ll shortchange your retirement fund by more than $300,000! That’s why you should start PAC-ing right away.

You’ll not only bene¿t from the advantages of dollar cost averaging and the magic of compounding, your regular PAC contributions will also generate a tax bene¿t along with the taxdeferred growth in your registered portfolio. By taking advantage of a PAC monthly investment plan, you could be taking the fastest route to ¿nancial independence and retirement freedom. Your professional ad-

Curves 14th Annual Food Drive Begins March 1 that commitment to the whole community,” said Carla Lowden, the owner of Cranbrook Curves. “Many families are struggling with basic expenses and need some help to make ends meet. Our food drive gives our members a way to reach out and support their neighbors.” With a theme of “Good for your body and your soul,” this year’s drive encourages Curves members to feel doubly good about themselves as they make time to exercise for good health and take time to help others in the community with a donation of nutritious food. Local Curves clubs may also qualify to win cash prizes for their local food banks. Curves International will award cash prizes to the clubs that collect the most food, the clubs that show the greatest increase in do-

nations over the 2011 food drive, and to two additional clubs randomly selected from all the clubs who enter the contest. “We would love to see all of our clubs top their donation levels from last year,” said Curves founder Diane Heavin. “But the main goal of our annual drive is to enlist the help of our members in re-stocking the shelves of local food pantries across the country. We also hope that new members will take this opportunity to give back to their local communities as they join our Curves community.” For more information about Cranbrook Curves, located at 308A 535 Victoria Ave. N, and the 2012 Curves Food Drive, contact a staff member at 250-417-2626.

Each club, including Cranbrook Curves, is asking its members to donate bags of nonperishable food or cash throughout the month of March to support their local community food bank. In addition, Cranbrook Curves will waive the membership fee for new members who bring in a bag of non-perishable food or donate $30 to their local food bank for the entire month of March 2012.

Maritime Travel Life is too short to think of it as anything but an adventure A mantra for the adventurous: •I’m not a tourist.* •I’m here to explore. To wander. To take my time. •I measure my journey in friends rather than miles. •I didn’t travel halfway across the world to sit in a deck chair all day. •I don’t get competitive about shuffleboard. •This is your planet. You really should see it sometime. (*from G Adventures 2012 Brochure)

Welcome to Adventure! This year at the Kootenay Women’s Show, Maritime Travel’s focus is on ADVENTURE! One of our partners is G Adventures (formerly GAP Adventures). And to

paraphrase a few words from their travel brochure ‘This ain’t your typical travel company.’ And it’s not about being a ‘tourist’, it’s about experiencing the destination, the culture, the people, being

responsible, respectful, and living life to the fullest. So, if you’ve got a BUCKET LIST, let Maritime Travel and G Adventures help you plan a life-changing travel event that you will never forget!

IN IN THE THE SHADOW SHADOW OF OF MACHU MACHU PICCHU PICCHU 10 days with G Adventures, Comfort Class Adventure with a softer landing! For those of us of a ‘certain age’, we’re still active, but like our creature comfort! Includes guided 4 day Inca Trail and Machu Picchu tour, 3 day excursion to the Amazon Rainforest. Comfort level hotels, most meals, transport by van, plane, boat and canoe. Small group experience.

There are more amazing trips out there. How about a women only group to Buenos Aires to learn how to tango? Corinne of VM Tours is escorting a small group of women who will dance the nights away in the Milonga halls of Buenos Aires, enjoy walking tours of the markets, shop for tango shoes, wine taste and more. You’ll have tango lessons with a private instructor

and a pro dance partner at tthe Milongas. How exciting! Ever wanted to walk the famous Spanish trek to Santiago de Compostela? Well, it’s actually hundreds of kilometres long and would take you weeks. Active Journeys offers a ‘Best of the Camino’ 14 day highlights trek. Your B&B’s are booked, you are transported by van through some long stretches to get to where the most interesting hiking points are, yes you will walk, but it’s ‘comfort’ style! On Carla’s bucket list is the Inca Trail in Peru, which she will do in May this year. After a few days seeing the sights of Lima, and the 4 day trek to Machu-Piccu, it’s off to the Amazon to see some critters! So talk to her about her upcoming trip of a lifetime. Maritime Travel will offer an escorted group tour to the Inca Trail in May 2013. Get your name on the list! Maritime Travel looks forward to seeing you at the Kootenay Women’s Show, and would love to help you plan some travel that YOU WILL NEVER FORGET!

Bedroom Furniture Plus Choosing your furniture for comfort, colour, fit and style

The Bedroom Furniture Galleries is pleased and excited to be a part of the 2012 Kootenay Women’s Show! This is our eighth year sponsoring this very popular event. Did you know Women make 80% of all the furniture purchasing decisions? Choosing furniture is like picking the perfect pair of shoes; the comfort, the colour, the ¿t and the style all come into play and are completely personal. At The Bedroom Furniture Galleries we are here to help ¿nd that per-

fect balance to make your home ‘you’. Sleep is very important to us at The Bedroom Furniture Galleries. We spend approximately 120 days per year sleeping and your well being depends on a good night’s rest. There are many elements that affect your sleep and your mattress is the most important. We have the largest selection of mattresses in the East Kootenay with a well trained staff to help you ¿nd the best night’s sleep.

The Bedroom Furniture Galleries has been a part of the Cranbrook community since 1977 and continues to be committed to a heritage of quality and service. We are a family owned business with humble beginnings starting with selling waterbeds in Kimberley to our current location downtown Cranbrook. The Bedroom Furniture Galleries has become a cornerstone to the downtown core with our extensive participation in the Downtown Business Association, The Rotary Club of Cranbrook, The Chamber of Commerce, Sam Steele Days and even The Santa Claus Parade. Our showroom is a collection of heritage buildings providing a unique shopping experience. We have recently expanded to over 20,000 square feet of home décor solutions from our La-zboy Gallery, to dinning room, living room, bedroom and mattresses. We attend Furniture buying trips throughout the year to stay current with the latest trends and to make sure we are providing the best possible selection for our customers. In addition, we can customize many

items to the colour, fabric or stain of your choice. Don’t be afraid to ask, ‘Does this come in another fabric?’ We are here to ¿nd your personal style. If you haven’t already discovered, The Bedroom Furniture Galleries has an extensive selection of accessories, pictures, lamps and more. Let us help you accentuate your home to your unique personality or ¿nd that perfect house warming gift. When you make a purchase at the Bedroom Furniture Galleries, it will be brought to your home with our own professional delivery team. We take pride in making sure your furniture is set up just the way you want it. Best of all we will remove your old furniture and don’t be concerned if you’re out of town, as our area covers most of the East Kootenay area. Feel comfortable knowing that our priority is you, which means if you are not completely satis¿ed with your purchase you have the bene¿t of our 60 day comfort guarantee. Return or exchange your purchase hassle free within 60 days; we want you happy and sleeping comfortably.

The Bedroom Furniture Galleries want you to stay and shop in the community and we have acquired a competitive edge by joining a powerhouse buying group. This allows us to join forces with other independent family owned retailers across Canada and increase our buying power. With more buying power, more savings are passed to you. There is no reason to shop in the city; we have the best possible prices and better service. Whether you are redoing your whole home or simply need one item, take advantage of our experience with colour, texture, placement and size of furniture that will be right for you and your life style. We can help organize and accentuate, advise and recommend. Come visit us downtown Cranbrook. Browse and dream of the possibilities! The Bedroom Furniture Galleries, where we make your house a home.

IRIS Understanding binocular vision is important for your children

Dr. Whitney Henker, IRIS Optometrist BV problems are dif¿cult for a child to explain and often go un-

detected even to an observant caregiver. Imagine sitting down with a warm glass of tea ready to read your fa-

vourite novel but today something isn’t working quite right. As you try to read and focus your eyes, they don’t respond correctly, in

fact, every twenty seconds or so the words slide into each other causing you to lose your place. As you continue reading, the words gradually begin to dance from side to side becoming tangled with each other leaving you with a sense of fatigue and frustration. You consciously force your eyes to hold still trying to remember what you were reading and why, only to be left confused and exhausted both visually and mentally. Many children have come to accept this dif¿culty as normal when they try to read and are unable to give voice to their problem. Reading ability is affected in Binocular Vision (BV) dysfunction and sadly, this vision issue may go undetected for years. 1 in 10 children has a binocular vision issue that is affecting their life. This number is possibly as high as 6 in 10 in learning disabled groups. Many visual dif¿culties go undetected as children seek to learn in other ways. Children compensate by touching, by holding, by getting closer to what they are looking at or by moving around to ¿nd a place where they can be comfortable. We often consider these children “inattentive” or “hyperactive”. In

fact, binocular vision issues are three times more common in those deemed as having ADHD and 5 out of the 9 clinical criteria used for ADHD diagnosis are identical in binocular vision dysfunction. Thorough eye examinations with an optometrist who listens, understands the speci¿c needs of children, and pays particular attention to the binocular vision system, are essential. Looking at a series of letters during a school screening will often give a false sense of security that everything is alright. In fact, children with BV dysfunction often have a high level of vision in the distance and up close in terms of letter-acuity (i.e. 20/20), which can be mistaken for a well-functioning visual system. Binocular vision issues often require a trip to an eye doctor speci¿cally looking for binocular vision/eye coordination issues. A more detailed work-up in addition to a basic eye examination is often required to diagnose and treat binocular vision issues. Vision therapy has been proven effective for treating BV dysfunction.

Political parties understand the attraction of female leaders. They are perceived as being credible and innovative. Many people believe that they will be more attentive

to social issues, such as the preservation of the public health system and improvements in education. They also appear to be generally more inclined to oppose military operations and be much more in favour of gun control. For the good of society, changing this situation is vital.

“This might be confusing at a glance,” stated Henley who chaired the Woman of the Year Committee, “because we (CFUW) are non-political and non-religious, yet we are honouring a Sister. Some of the reasons she was selected are because of her huge impact on everyone and anyone she has met, regardless of race, creed or social status, her ability to teach and create teachers, to instill self-respect in all she touched. Although a Roman Catholic Sister, Nina did not exclude anyone from her care and compassion. Nor does Nina wear robes, but rather looks like any area woman except for the constant glow that radiates from her. She was so open and trusted by everyone who met her, that hearing her speak at several Cranbrook and Kootenay area churches was common. One of the nominators, Arlene Davis said this about Nina, “As a teacher she educates not only in the academic sense, but in the area of human development.” Mary Fiorentino, the head of the nomination committee for Nina wrote “I could ¿ll pages telling of what Nina promoted in the community to enhance the lives of women, but I want to talk about Nina, the person. It is because of whom she is that she is able to ful¿ll the mission for which she came to Marywood Retreat Centre as co-director in the fall of 1996. She is an open, honest and trustworthy person; a born leader, charismatic and a great mentor, empowering others by drawing forth their giftedness. She invites, inspires, challenges and encourages everyone to teach and carry on some of the programmes she initiates. Nina is a great listener, very approachable and has a wonderful sense of humour. She treats all as equals and with dignity.” She is the true meaning of a teacher.

Kootenay Therapy Center Kootenay Therapy Center presenting at the show “I Laughed so hard, I peed my Pants” – a free education session with physiotherapist Suzanne Thompson A discussion about female incontinence and other funny, but not so funny topics. Does leaking urine make it dif¿cult or embarrassing to exercise (or lift, cough, sneeze)? When you have to go, do you have to go NOW??? Is sex uncomfortable, painful or impossible due to pelvic, abdominal or back pain? Learn more about what you can do to help yourself. Did you know that the Canadian Continence Foundation estimates that 1.5 million Canadians are incontinent? Contrary to myth, adult

incontinence occurs in young and old and is not a normal process of aging. Incontinence affects many aspects of life – work, social activities, recreation, travel and sex. This treatable condition limits life choices and prevents sufferers from taking on new challenges. Childbirth, lifestyle, hormone changes, certain medical conditions and surgery are some events that can bring about these changes in the pelvic Àoor. Regardless of the cause, treatment can help to successful manage symptoms. Physiotherapy is a noninvasive treatment for incontinence. Alternate medical interventions

are medication, pessaries and surgery. Physiotherapy treatment focuses on rehabilitation of pelvic Àoor muscle control, strength, endurance and the ability to coordinate these aspects into everyday activities. Treatment is tailored to the individual patient. Treatment varies according to the type of incontinence and the individual’s unique needs. Those needs are determined through an extensive interview and physical exam of the spine, abdominals, extremities and the pelvic Àoor muscles. This assessment is performed by a physiotherapist with special postgraduate training in pelvic Àoor rehabilitation. Successful pelvic Àoor rehabilitation is central to

conservative treatment of incontinence. Research has demonstrated that with only verbal and/or written instruction, 50% of women are unable to correctly perform a pelvic Àoor muscle contraction (Kegel exercise), even when they think they have mastered the skill. In addition, not all people and conditions are appropriate for Kegels. Not only is correct pelvic Àoor function important to maintain continence, it is also required for pelvic organ support, to maintain correct posture and to perform pain free low back movements. Whatever the cause, with physiotherapy treatment, incontinence can often be improved, resolved or managed successfully.

2012 Kootenay Women’s Show Feminism is not something that went out of vogue years back Are you a feminist? If the truth be told, we shouldn’t even have to ask this question: how can anyone today be against the equality of men and women, which is the very de¿nition of feminism. These days, it is no longer necessarily a question of com-

mitted activism, and especially not one of

fanatical militancy. Rather, it is all about

favouring equity and harmony between all human beings. It goes without saying that if women around the world were no longer the victims of injustice, the word “feminism” would become obsolete. Indeed, it would be something to celebrate! This is far from STOCK PHOTO

Equality means men and women sharing responsibilities and obligations as well as the opportunities and ful¿lment that are derived from freedom in life and work. the case, however. That means there are many good reasons to proudly describe yourself as a feminist, starting with the need to safeguard the still-fragile progress made by generations of women — some of them fought tooth and nail for the right to vote in our own country! Around the world there are still many examples of discrimination against women, notably in access to education, suitable working conditions, freedom of choice in marriage and family planning, and independence from fathers, husbands, and their male authority surrogates. Even in the West, it is still important to keep feminist ideals alive. All is not yet equalized: think about pay equity or the seemingly invisible obstacles that still prevent many women from occupying executive posts or of the masses of older women living alone and in poverty. This March 8 is International Women’s Day. Let’s think about our fellow women, both here and around the world. Let’s do our part to keep the feminist movement alive by staying alert and acting promptly against all forms of injustice against women.

Denham Ford Statistics show that women are directly responsible for 45 to 50 percent of all new vehicles purchased in the U.S., and they have a direct inÀuence on up to 80 percent of vehicles they don’t purchase themselves Often times, men and women are looking for the same features in vehicles but use different language to describe the attributes important to them The old-time Ford advertisements from the turn of the 20th century tell a quaint story: They show the woman of that time as a fragile creature, somewhat prone to panic, in need of a simplistic automobile that even she can operate. Times have most definitely changed. Ford vehicles are still durable and easy to handle, but the women behind the wheel bear little resemblance to the hothouse Àower of yesteryear. She’s strong,

self-assured, and very capable of taking care of herself. As the National Women’s History Project sponsors its 30th Women’s History Month in March, Ford Motor Company is more aware than ever of the changing role that women hold in today’s society. “Women pack a powerful purchasing punch,” said Christine Stasiw Lazarchuk, director of global marketing research for Ford. “And that’s grabbed the attention of all automakers searching for new business in an era of tight competition. Companies that fail to realize that will be left behind, especially now, when the margin between success and failure is narrow, and we’re ¿ghting for every advantage and sale.” Statistics prove out her point. “Women are directly responsible for 45 to 50 percent of all new vehicles purchased in the U.S, and they

have a direct inÀuence of up to 80 percent of vehicles they don’t purchase themselves,” Stasiw Lazarchuk said. “And 65 percent take their own vehicles to the dealership or shop for repair. Women account for a whopping $85 billion in automotive and related businesses.” Those numbers, from 2007, are only expected to grow stronger. Women leading the way But it’s not only the U.S. that is seeing women’s roles shift. “The whole world is changing, and it’s changing fast,” said Sheryl Connelly, Ford’s global trend manager. “Women are at the forefront of change that’s contributing signi¿cantly to an increase in their progress and power.” Connelly sees ¿ve major global factors driving that change: Improved education: Although gender dis-

parities persist in some countries, the gender gap in education continues to narrow, allowing women to ¿nd their way into the work force. In the U.S., the

own money. In China, for instance, 44 percent of government jobs are held by women. Financial independence: Increased earning power is leading to

Gender roles have blurred. You no longer have the women always staying at home and the man of the house always the breadwinner. You don’t have those definitive roles anymore.

Sheryl Connelly Ford’s Global Trend Manager

number of women earning Ph.D.s is rising at a rate of 63 percent a year. Career opportunities: With more education, women are ¿nding their way into the work force, earning their

¿nancial independence for more women. Working women in relationships often outearn their partners – by 25 percent in the U.S., 30 percent in Great Britain.

Changing roles as consumers As the world changes, women obviously change with it, Connelly notes. When the economy began to crumble, many women took a lead role in keeping the home front together – either going back to work or taking over the belt-tightening of the budget. “Gender roles have blurred,” Connelly said. “You no longer have the women always staying at home and the man of the house always the breadwinner. You don’t have those de¿nitive roles anymore.” Ford researchers queried women with 2008 vehicles and found that these are the highestranked features they don’t have on their vehicles, but they’d like to: • Run-Àat tires (57 percent) • Rain-sensing wipers (44 percent) • Auto park assist (32 percent)

• Tire pressure monitoring system (18 percent). A growing inÀuence Women’s roles in society will continue to shift and change, said Connelly; that much is obvious. And as Ford grows as a company, it, too, will continue to monitor how this important demographic views not only vehicles, but the world in general. “There is great growth potential for companies that understand what women want,” she said. “Every day, the world is changing and women play a key role in the shifts that are occurring. At Ford, we know that women represent a huge market opportunity, and we work to design, develop and market our products and services in a way that captures the attention of this incredibly inÀuential buying group.”
