Retired judge Thomas Braidwood is “very pleased with the response” to his recommendations on the use of Taser stun guns by police in the wake of Robert Dziekanski’s death in 2007. Braidwood testified before a legislature committee Oct. 16, after a senior RCMP official reported on training and procedure changes that led to an 87 per cent reduction in use of Tasers to subdue people. Braidwood emphasized he stands by the core finding of his inquiry, which is that police in British Columbia should continue to use them with new training and strict new rules. Those provincewide rules include requiring police to determine the subject is causing bodily harm or is about to, and mandate that “de-escalation” or crisis intervention techniques be taught and used before a Taser is deployed. He described a basic technique that could have been used when four Richmond RCMP officers approached a distraught Dziekanski at Vancouver International Airport. If one of those officers had simply pulled up a chair and sat down, Braidwood said, Dziekanski would likely be alive today. Similar techniques can defuse even violent domestic disputes, rightly considered by police to be their most dangerous calls, said Braidwood, a former prosecutor who went on to serve as a B.C. Supreme Court and Court of Appeal justice.

“Don’t Dither, Call Diether”
Resources available for suicidal youth The Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) reminds young people and their families that if they are feeling alone, sad, or having thoughts of suicide, help is available. Here are a few numbers youth and families can contact themselves or on behalf of someone else to get immediate help: • 1 800 SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433). • Youth in BC: 1-866-661-3311 (toll free). Youth in BC is an online crisis service, where you can chat one-on-one with a trained volunteer 24 hours a day. • Aboriginal People Crisis Line: 1-800-588-8717. • Native Youth Crisis Hotline: 1-877209-1266. • Suicide Prevention Lifeline: A free 24-hour hotline in Canada or the United States – 1-800273-8255. • Kids Help Phone: 1-800-668-6868. The Kids Help Line is a national organization offering bilingual, 24-hour, toll-free confidential phone counselling, referral and Internet services for children and youth or their parents in English and French. Most children and youth having thoughts of suicide show signs of their distress, although some do not. Some of the changes families and others may see in children and youth who may be at risk for suicide, include: • Talking about suicide or a plan for suicide. • Saying things like, “I’m going to kill myself,” “I wish I were dead,” “I shouldn’t have been born,” “I won’t be a problem for you much longer,” “Nothing matters,” or “It’s no use.” • Making statements about hopelessness,
helplessness or worthlessness. • Complaining of being a bad person or feeling “rotten inside,” refusing help or feeling beyond help. Not tolerating praise or rewards. • Giving away favourite possessions or making a will. • Being preoccupied with death. • Showing a loss of interest in pleasurable activities or things they once cared about. Always feeling bored. • Feeling trapped, increasingly anxious, agitated or angry. • Showing marked personality changes and serious mood changes. • Withdrawing from friends and family. • Expressing plans to seek revenge. • Sleeping all of the time or unable to sleep. • Having trouble concentrating or difficulties with school work.
• Complaining frequently about physical symptoms often related to emotions, such as stomach aches, headaches or fatigue. Changes in eating and sleeping habits. • Showing impulsive behaviours, such as violent actions, rebellious behaviour or running away.
• Increasing or excessive substance use. • Becoming suddenly cheerful after a period of depression (may mean the youth has already made the decision to escape their problems through suicide). The MCFD has several initiatives around the province that aim
to reduce the risk of youth suicide, including the FRIENDS for Life program: www. mcf.gov.bc.ca/mental_health/friends. htm. This is a schoolbased prevention program designed to increase resiliency and reduce anxiety for British Columbia students.

Pipeline meeting short, not sweet By Tom Fletcher Black Press
Premier Christy Clark’s meeting with Alberta Premier Alison Redford on Oct. 1 lasted only 15 minutes, and didn’t resolve any of their differences about the Enbridge heavy oil pipeline proposal. Clark spoke by phone with reporters after what she described as a “frosty and quite short” meeting with Redford in Calgary. Clark said she reiterated her government’s five conditions for supporting the Northern Gateway pipeline, including one about British Columbia needing a “fair share” of benefits from the line. The other four conditions are for the project to pass a federal environmen-
tal review, and for “world-leading” spill response on land and on water, as well as meeting legal requirements for Aboriginal and treaty rights along the route from northern Alberta to Kitimat. After the meeting, Redford told reporters in Calgary she reiterated her position that giving up any of Alberta’s oil royalties is “a
non-starter.” Redford said she asked Clark to propose other ways that B.C. could increase benefits, but Clark offered no response. “I gave her the opportunity, more than once in the meeting, to say that royalties aren’t on the table, and she didn’t take that.” However, Clark said it’s not her job to find ways of increas-
ing benefits to B.C. “It is up to whoever is going to benefit from this project to come forward and advocate for it. In my view, that’s her. “I said to her today, as it stands right now, there is absolutely no way that British Columbia will support this proposal.” As Clark was preparing for her meeting,

Taser use diminished significantly under new guidelines TASER… from page 1 The Taser rules also require police to have an automated defibrillator in the car, or in a supervisor’s vehicle in communities of 5,000 people or less. Independent testing of the stun guns is also required, and the rules also apply to all municipal police in B.C. On Oct. 15, RCMP Assistant Commissioner Randy Beck told the committee new training began in 2011. By then, the fallout from the Dziekanski case had led to a steep decrease in use of Tasers. Braidwood noted that so far there has not been a corresponding increase in police use of guns. “Have more police officers been injured while restraining violent subjects, or have officers discovered that other tools in their arsenal, such as training in crisis intervention techniques, have resolved many of these potentially dangerous confrontations without resorting to use of conducted energy weapons?” he asked. “It would appear to be a fruitful area for more research.” Braidwood’s inquiry led not only to new Taser procedures, but also the establishment of B.C.’s new Independent Investigations Office, the civilian-led agency that began work this summer to take control of all policeinvolved incidents that result in death or serious bodily harm. Braidwood said the steps taken since his inquiry have filled a gap in the civilian oversight of police that is “a fundamental tenet that distinguishes Canada from totalitarian or dictatorial states.”

Clark vows construction projects By Tom Fletcher Black Press
Premier Christy Clark announced $207 million worth of accelerated capital projects, including roadwork, school and hospital improvements in her speech to close the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) convention. Clark said accelerated projects will
be announced in the weeks ahead, including school improvements in Nanaimo, Campbell River, Houston, Surrey, Richmond, Mission, Maple Ridge and West Vancouver. â€œThese are new projects that we can get started this year, but this capital investment is not new money,â€? Clark told a Victoria convention hall packed
with local politicians. â€œIt is money we have saved from pinching our pennies, and I am very proud of that.â€? Clark also pledged the four-laning the last 240 kilometres of the Trans-Canada Highway from Kamloops to the Alberta border, a project expected to cost $650 million over the next 10 years. The commitment adds $509 million to the

What Canadian snowbirds need to know Before heading off to the southern United States this winter for a long stay, RBC Wealth Management has advice for Canadian snowbirds to ensure they take all U.S. tax and estate issues into account. Failing to adhere to applicable U.S. laws may have serious implications if not followed carefully. “Canadians who spend more than four months in the U.S. every year should file a U.S. tax form each year to avoid being deemed a U.S. resident for tax purposes,” says Prashant Patel, RBC Wealth Management vicepresident. “In addition, Canadians who own U.S. real estate should consider if U.S. estate tax or state probate tax would affect them. It is important to consult with a qualified U.S. tax advisor to discuss all these issues.” Canadian snowbirds should also make sure their affairs are in order well before they plan their trip. For example, any Power of Attorney would need
to be valid in the U.S. as well as in Canada. In addition, if a Canadian personally owns U.S. real estate at the time of their death, their estate could be subject
to U.S. estate taxes based on the market value of their U.S. real estate, Patel adds. “After 2012, the maximum U.S. estate tax rate is scheduled to increase to 55 per
estate issues, RBC Bank has compiled a comprehensive, easyto-follow checklist of other items snowbirds should consider, including: • Identify the most
convenient ATM locations where you will be able to withdraw funds from your U.S.based account. • Contact your mobile phone service provider to add inter-
national roaming to your plan or secure a pre-paid phone to be used in the U.S. only. • Remember to pack your passport and health insurance cards.
