Trevor Linden speaks in Hope Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard
Local residents and business leaders erupted with cheers and clapping as a three-minute introduction filled with memorable video clips and photos summed up Trevor Linden’s 20-year career. As the former NHL player stepped up to the podium at the Hope Legion last Thursday, the applause got louder as people brimmed with anticipation. Linden joked about how he could do without seeing a certain suit again before jumping into an entertaining speech that drew comparisons between the hockey and business worlds. Throughout the
evening, which was hosted by the Hope & District Chamber of Commerce in celebration of small business week, he shared stories and tips on leadership, strategies for success, and talked about the importance of teamwork. “Competition rules everything we do in sports and life,” said Linden. “You’ve got to love competition and I think you’ve got to embrace the challenge that comes with it. Ultimately, competition makes us better and it forces us to find better ways to do things. If we’re not looking for better ways to do things, you’ll probably move backwards.” Linden stressed the importance of pushing the limits and developing a strategy that can takes busi-

nesses to the next level. He pointed out that leaders have to look outside the box, find better answers to the tough questions and be aggressive. Throughout his hockey career, Linden relied on a fundamental game plan to get him through big matches. His NHL career spanned 20 years, four teams, two All-Star games, and the Nagano Olympic Games. Named the youngest-ever captain of the Vancouver Canucks at just 21 years old, he led the team to within a game of winning the Stanley Cup in 1994, earning him the lifelong nickname “Captain Canuck.” Later elected president of the National Hockey League Players’ Association, Linden played an instrumental role over his eight years
of service. In 2005-06, he suited up for his 1,000th game as a Canuck, and a season later he became the first Canuck to score 300 goals for the team. Aside from his teammates and the daily routine of hockey, one of things Linden said he misses the most is the goal setting required in professional sports. “As an athlete, I had a clear direction every day,” he said. “There wasn’t a day I woke up and didn’t know exactly what my focus was. Team sports and athletics teach us about short-term goal setting and preparing because you can never get too far ahead of yourself.” Continued on A3

Under the terms of the agreement Telus will invest to connect more than 1,700 kilometres of unconnected highways with wireless service. “Increased wireless service along the summit of the Coquihalla will extend 911 emergency services access,” said Chilliwack-Hope MLA Laurie Throness. “I am happy Telus is extending service along this well-travelled and important highway. It will improve safety for motorists year-round.”

The annual Fall Health Fair returns to Hope Secondary School this Saturday. The event aims to raise awareness about the importance of good health, encourage healthy behaviours, and promote use of the local health, social and cultural resources. “With this year’s theme of Laughter is the Best Medicine, the Fall Health Fair is a great place to share some laughs, lighten your burdens, connect with others and exercise happiness,” said coordinator Brenna Ayliffe. “Laughter
is one of the most powerful tools to support your physical and emotional health.” The Fall Health Fair will feature entertainment by Hope Community Choir, Hope Performing Arts Community Theatre, and the Senior Keep Fit exercise class. There will also be a joke telling contest and comedy skit by youth from the Fuze Box and Youth Inclusion Program, children’s storytelling, concession sponsored by Camp Squeah, flu shot clinic, and Hope’s Heart Hero award presentation. This year’s keynote speaker is Glenda Standeven, coauthor of Choosing to Smile,
which is an autobiography written by three friends who all happened to have cancer. After being diagnosed with cancer in 1987, and losing her entire right leg to the disease in 1988, Standeven felt it important to give encouragement and hope to others facing adversity. In 1990, before the birth of their second son, she won two silver medals in the BC Winter Games in the slalom and giant slalom events. Standeven was Chilliwack’s Woman of the Year in 2003, received the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award in 2005, and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee
Medal in 2013 for her “exemplary community volunteer efforts.” She has volunteered in many capacities for the Canadian Cancer Society over the past two decades and facilitated a Living With Cancer Support Group for 11 years. Standeven is also a member of The Rotary Club of Chilliwack, a lifetime member of the Optimist Club of Chilliwack, a Terry’s Team Member for the Terry Fox Foundation, and an active member of the Valley Women’s Network. The Fall Health Fair runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Hope Secondary School is located at 444 Stuart St.
Teamwork and leadership part of Linden’s address From A1
Linden stressed that in the business world, everyone should be aware of the long-term goal and be reminded daily what the focus is. “The best leaders I played for were the guys that gave us players a roadmap of how to get there. That is so important when you think about leadership,” he said. “These guys reminded me every day how critical it was to execute on the details and to not let them ever slide. When I think about playing hockey and successful hockey teams, it’s all about detail and structure. I really believe that people and employees ultimately want that too. They want to be held accountable.” When it comes to leadership, Linden pointed out that there’s no one way. However, he stressed the importance of supporting each other and not splintering into groups. “Ultimately, displaying the ability and courage to do what’s right and in the best interest of your group regardless will garner respect,” he said. “Bottom line is you’ve got to trust your

judgement and believe in yourself. You’re there because people believe in you to make the best decisions for the company, employees, and partners.” Linden also spoke about how the skills he learned playing professional hockey have been transferable to his personal and business life. Since his retirement from professional hockey in 2008, Linden has partnered with
companies – like Bell, CIBC and Ernst & Young – across Canada to assist in the activation of their business programs, and also partnered with The Airey Group to pursue real estate and design project, jointly developing several award-winning properties in B.C.

During a stay in hospital, your medications may be changed and some older medications may be stopped. It’s important to be sure to not take these medications when you get home. Part of our job as your pharmacist is to be a ¿nal check to ensure this transition from hospital to home occurs smoothly. Many admissions to hospital are due to a medication problem...not taking them properly, taking too much or too little or due to a drug interaction. Having a complete record of your medications
helps us to ensure you’re taking your medications correctly and safely. A vasectomy is still one of the best birth control methods.

to making fitness membership fun and economically accessible for all. Linden has also continued his work with The Trevor Linden Foundation, which was established in 1997 in support of youth and children with needs. He has also appeared in several key charity campaigns including Cops for Cancer, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, the Canadian Cancer Society’s B.C. & Yukon Preventative Health Campaign, Ronald McDonald House B.C., The Heart & Stroke Foundation of B.C., and B.C. Children’s Hospital. Linden said what he’s learned over the years on and off the ice is that is takes a whole team to succeed. “Great teams need people to accept their role and to respect other people’s role and what they do,” he said. “Ultimately, on any team there are larger roles and smaller roles, but they’re all super important in success. Just because you play a smaller role on a team doesn’t mean you can’t have a big impact. Very seldom do individuals look good when the team fails.”

However, he pointed out that the last Fresh Sheet out-sold the regular menu. â€œItâ€™s encouraging,â€? added Harper. â€œWeâ€™re just touching on things we would really like to do while still holding back.â€?

Get ready for winter roads Tom Fletcher Black Press
Some “all season” tires are good enough for winter roads in B.C., but not all of them. That’s one reason why Transportation Minister Todd Stone has added the topic of tires to a provincial review of highway safety that includes speed limits. “It’s been almost 40 years since the current definition of a winter tire was actually changed, and tire technology has advanced dramatically, particularly over the last five to 10 years,” Stone said Tuesday. With the popularity of allseason tires and all-wheeldrive vehicles, Stone said there is some confusion about what is acceptable for requirements that took effect Oct. 1 on routes
The North American symbol for a winter tire is a mountain with snowflake. All-season tires with “M+S” for “mud and snow” are also acceptable for restricted roads in B.C., if they have enough tread left.
that have winter conditions. Those routes have signs advising drivers to use winter tires or carry chains, and police may turn drivers away if they are not properly equipped.
True winter tires have a symbol of a mountain and snowflake on the sidewall. All-season tires with the “M+S” mark to indicate traction in mud and snow are also permissible, but

all tires must have a minimum tread depth of 3.5 mm. A quick test can be done using a dime. Point Her Majesty’s head downward and insert the dime in the tire tread. If the top of the head remains visible, the tire is too worn to qualify for winter conditions. Drivers have a choice of investing in new tires or buying a set of chains. The transportation ministry has a website at www.th.gov. bc.ca/SeasonalDriving/winter_ chains.html that includes maps of routes affected by winter restrictions, and tips on how to use tire chains. Stone said that with 60 per cent of B.C. residents living in areas where winter conditions are not common, he is not considering making winter tires mandatory for all vehicles.
B.C. to consider booze sales in food stores Tom Fletcher Black Press
The B.C. government’s liquor policy review has heard a ‘loud and clear’ message that people want the convenience of buying alcoholic beverages in grocery stores, says the MLA in charge of the review. With a three-month consultation period ending Oct. 31, Richmond Steveston MLA John Yap said Tuesday that about 80 per cent of respondents want the extra convenience that is routine in U.S. grocery stores. But Yap is proposing a less convenient model, a “store within a store” that would have separate space and staff for alcohol purchases. He said the number of outlets could be restricted to the current level, with some existing private or public liquor stores moved into grocery stores. The Liquor Control Board of Ontario has announced a similar pilot project, with 10 “express” stores to offer limited selection inside or next to grocery stores. Nova Scotia also has government liquor stores located in grocery stores. When the B.C. consultation began in September, Yap noted that beer, wine and spirits are already sold in rural grocery stores. He was critical of the U.S. model, saying it could lead to increased health and safety is-
sues from increased consumption, as well as law enforcement problems. B.C.’s medical health officers have called for a freeze or reduction to the number of private retailers, a $3 minimum price for bar drinks and higher prices for drinks with
more alcohol content to deter over-consumption. The Alliance of Beverage Licencees, representing pubs, bars and private liquor stores in B.C., isn’t happy with the idea. ABLE BC executive director Ian Baillie said the province
already has more than 1,400 government and private liquor stores. “The government also needs to consider what the impact of allowing large grocery chains to sell liquor will be on the thousands of jobs and millions of dollars of income that are provided

Scandal damage significant The ongoing Senate scandal has certainly done its share of damage — to the prime minister, the Conservative Party, the institution of the Senate and politicians in general. The damage may not spread past that group, but it is significant and it may be lasting. The Senate is certainly at its low point. It has never been popular with Canadians, being seen as a repository for bagmen, party hacks and failed politicians. While a few individual senators have done important and significant work, as a whole the institution does little of lasting importance. Now it has clearly been shown that many senators, and this goes far beyond Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau, have had their hands in the cookie jar. Even when they get caught, the Senate and indeed the prime minister do little or nothing to change the culture of entitlement, which is widespread through the federal government. It isn’t just politicians who feel they are entitled to benefits that most other Canadians don’t get. Public servants have clauses in their contracts relating to sick leave, indexed pensions, severance and extended health care that most others can only dream of. The prime minister first took office in 2006 on a pledge to reform the Senate. It is now clear he has no idea of how to do so. A court decision in Quebec has basically ruled all his reform ideas cannot be implemented, and the court decision implies that the Senate will never be abolished, unless most provinces agree. Even if, in the court of public opinion, Stephen Harper is cleared of direct knowledge of off-the-books payments to senators, the public won’t soon forget that he appointed these three senators, and that he campaigned vigorously on Senate reform. As for the Conservative Party, in the next election its fortunes are totally tied to Harper. If he falters, so does the party. It has no plan B. - Black Press
Perils of an ‘entitlement state’
Tom Fletcher With the B.C. and federal governments once again struggling to climb out of deep operating deficits, it’s a good time for the release of Mark Milke’s book Tax Me, I’m Canadian. An update of the same title published 12 years ago, the book retains the history of taxes in Canada, detailing how Canada’s tax system was initially built to mimic the United States system in the late 19th century. Beyond the history, it is mostly new material. Included are chapters on the global meltdown of 2009, the surge of pension liabilities as the baby boomers retire and the flawed logic behind the “Occupy” and “Idle
No More” protests. Some readers will immediately note that Milke works for the Fraser Institute and was previously B.C. director of the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation. But the book is not just an argument for cutting taxes. It also dismantles persistent myths that income taxes are illegal, and launches a broadside on what Milke calls “Canada’s corporate welfare carnival.” Many people will be able to identify some top names in the government subsidy game: Bombardier, General Motors, even poor old Rolls Royce Canada. Some will also be well aware that our supposedly tight-fisted Conservative federal government has continued to pour out “regional development” and other funds to every part of the country. But I did not know that Industry Canada grants were handed out to

pizza parlours (including the remote pizza-starved village of Kamloops), or to help open gas stations or convenience stores in Kelowna, Vernon and Chilliwack. Milke makes a useful point for B.C. about royalty rates for timber, natural gas and other resources. They are resource rents, and if they are too high the tenants will move out. Reducing them isn’t a subsidy, especially if it leads to big revenue gains as B.C.’s unconventional shale gas incentives have done. On the Occupy movement: The infamous “one per cent,” who in Canada earn $250,000 a year or more, earned 10 per cent of all income and paid 20 per cent of all taxes in 2010. The bottom 73 per cent of tax filers paid just 17 per cent of all taxes. About a third paid no tax at all. On Idle No More: When Attawapiskat Chief Teresa Spence
played to the Ottawa media with her soup strike, former Liberal leader Bob Rae suggested a nearby diamond mine should share more revenue. Milke omits the substantial support and employment that mine provides, and glosses over the misguided blockades that disrupted that and other job-creating enterprises. But he does detail the disastrous effects of passive resource wealth bestowed on impoverished aboriginal communities, and contrasts it with the success stories of reserves that build their own enterprises through hard work. On public sector pensions: Milke notes that historically, public employees traded higher wages for better benefits and job security. Now their wages are generally higher, and taxpayers have to cover their personal pension contributions (as a portion of those wages) as well as

On the debt-financed welfare state, there are memorable observations, like this one: “For the record, the generous Quebec welfare state and its ostensibly more progressive model are paid for in part with the taxes of other Canadians; Quebec is merely the North American equivalent of Greece.” The recent B.C. political crisis over adoption of the harmonized sales tax showed that there is too much emotion and too little knowledge about how taxes work. This book is a step towards addressing that. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalNews.com Twitter:@tomfletcherbc E-mail: email@example.com

Letters Converting to natural gas cleaner The news of the expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline is not anything new. As a matter of fact, huge sections of the line have already been widened. The thirst and demand for Canada’s energy will be never ending. Unfortunately, our oil reserves are going to. Day after day, the media is swamped with propaganda that we have this never ending reserve of oil. The truth is we don’t. Canada’s known accessible crude, if pumped at current
rates will not last to 2050. Whereas, our new found reserves of natural gas are about 480 years. Understanding, that the last bit of oil is worth a lot of money, there has to be a better motivation than that, to not start to convert to natural gas and save the crude oil for manufacturing. Not only do we use oil to make gasoline, we also use it to manufacture plastics, food stuffs, etc. So, to wait for the crude to run out before we convert to natural gas will be a disaster
of proportions the economy has never seen. It is all very avoidable. We must begin to convert to natural gas now, and quit worrying about the big oil companies propaganda. Nobody wants to put Kinder Morgan out of business. Nobody wants you to worry about your pension plans. Nobody wants to have you worry about your energy needs. What we do have to worry about is the future. We can remedy the impending di-
saster, but have to convert now. So, instead of building oil pipelines, start building gas lines. There are just as many jobs in gas as there is in oil if we expand. I’m sure somebody at Kinder Morgan knows a gas fitter. We have enough gas to build our future. Though, not perfect, gas is cleaner and an easy fuel to convert too. Let’s develop our own energy sources, we’ll surely make more money than what Alberta offers us. Art Green
‘Grand experiment’ has us heading one way Re: CO2 a tiny fraction of atmosphere, Letters (Oct. 24) Thanks to Francis Patrick Jordan for asking “How can a reasonable person argue that carbon dioxide is the primary driver of climate change?” The answer lies in wavelengths of energy and the structure of molecules. Energy from the sun reaches Earth in the range from ultraviolet to infrared, peaking in the visible range. This energy warms the
Earth and Earth in turn radiates energy, as any object warmer than absolute zero does. Earth radiates in the infrared range. The atmosphere, as Francis pointed out, is 77 per cent nitrogen (N2) and 21 per cent Oxygen (O2). N2 and O2 molecules can stretch, but only symmetrically. Molecules with three atoms like carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapour (H2O), nitrous oxide (N2O) or ozone (O3), or five atoms like methane (CH4), can
stretch and bend asymmetrically at frequencies that match wavelengths of infrared energy, allowing absorption and re-emission. A graphic is available at http:// tinyurl.com/yj3ljb7 to illustrate. Some of that energy will end up emitted back to Earth, adding to the total energy reaching the planet. That is the greenhouse effect. Atmospheric CO2 concentrations fluctuate naturally, over the past million
years up and down between about 180 ppm to about 280 ppm. Since the industrial revolution it has shot up to its current level of about 400 ppm due to burning of fossil fuels. A graphic at http:// tinyurl.com/qeuwc2g illustrates. Current Canadian and British Columbian economic and energy policies ensure that our carbon emissions will accelerate. It is a grand experiment.

The treatment that Seabird Island Band has given current renters on their reserve is despicable. Recently Seabird Island Band has increased its rent for the rental properties. I am not opposed to an increase; however my previous rent was $250 for a one bedroom. The rent was then increased to $475 effective October 2013.
This is a rental increase of 90 per cent. If the rental increase was off reserve this increase would only be of inflation rate plus two per cent; but because this is regarding a reserve and considered federal land, they are able to allow this increase and Residential Tenancy laws do not apply. I personally was not given written notification of this rental
Renter feeling mistreated at Seabird Island increase until Oct. 7, 2013. If I didn’t attend a community meeting Oct. 1, 2013 I wouldn’t have known about the rental increase at all. Supposedly notification was sent out in August 2013 regarding this rental increase; however I was not told verbally or written until Oct. 7, 2013. I am currently receiving disability pension, and the increase in rent is taking away
FLUSHING OF WATER MAINS The Utilities Department will perform its annual program of hydrant maintenance and water main flushing from October 7, 2013 through November 8, 2013. As a result of this flushing, you may notice changes in water pressure and there may be some discoloration or sediment in the water. This is a temporary condition and is not a health hazard. To avoid inconvenience, check your water before doing laundry. You may wish to keep water in the refrigerator for drinking and cooking.
all of the money I had set aside for groceries. Seabird Island band is treating its renters atrociously. The most vulnerable, (elders, disabled, etc.) are heavily affected with this rental increase. In my personal
opinion, this seems to be a way for Seabird Island band to get rid of those most vulnerable, and make them move off-reserve because they can no longer live on-reserve anymore. Lionel Patterson

Do you remember flying into work over Harrison Lake, living in a logging camp, or enjoying the delights of camp food in the good old days? If so, the Agassiz Historical Society would like to hear from you. They are just beginning what will be a months-long oral history project, detailing the working history of Harrison Lake and Harrison Mills. Volunteers have already contacted many wellknown locals with a history connected to mills and logging. But they are hoping to hear from others they may not know about. Each person will be videotaped while telling their stories, as they’re interviewed by members of the society. “We hope this will start an oral history tradition here at the museum,” Bev Kennedy told a small group who gathered at the first meeting for the project on Tuesday. The society received a grant to help purchase the audio visual equipment needed for the project. They will spend the next few weeks learning techniques and working out the bugs. Then, they’ll begin the interviews, said Judy Pickard. Most

In addition to stories, they are hoping to add to their collection of about 150 old photographs. The project is open

Many gathered at the meeting this week, eager to share their tales of living and working on the lake. The society is hoping to have the project finished by spring, and it will play in the Agassiz-Harrison Museum beginning May long weekend next year. “This is a big step for our museum,” Pickard said.

BARRY STEWART / THE STANDARD
Over a third of Coquihalla Elementary School’s Grade 4 students are currently involved in the twice-weekly lunch hour running club, which is sponsored by teacher Christine Carmen.
School running program expands to Coquihalla Barry Stewart Hope Standard
After six years of spreading the seeds of running and physical fitness around town, the C. E. Barry running program has taken root at Coquihalla Elementary School. Christine Carman, who taught at C.E. Barry last year, is heading the lunch hour program at her new school — and she has about 20 regular runners from the two Grade 4 classes. That’s over a third of all Grade 4 students taking part in the Wednesday and Friday run club. “The kids are really enthusiastic,” said Carman on Tuesday. “And the weather has been awesome, so far… not even a drop of rain yet.”
Carman took part in C.E. Barry’s learn-to-run program last spring, running at lunchtime and doing her own training near her home in Chilliwack on the weekends — then participating with the school’s Team Fit entry in the Sun Run 10 km run in Vancouver. “I’m going to promote the Sun Run club with these kids,” said Carman. “It’s a good way to connect the two schools — and it should help with the students’ transition to C.E. Barry next year.” Meanwhile, C. E. Barry’s Team Fit organizer, Pauline Johnson said they have about 12 regular runners in their lunchtime program. The school’s secretary, Miranda Cowan, Johnson, Kim Hollmann and Car-
man’s husband Tyson Slack head out with the kids on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. “In poor weather, we’ll stay inside and incorporate our Fit Club,” said Johnson. “We have about 15 to 20 minutes of workout videos, with dance, zumba and kick-boxing moves.” At both schools, they run on empty stomachs and eat after. Both use the learn-to-run program provided by SportMed BC, which is the basis of the Sun Run program. Currently, the Coquihalla group is at the “run two minutes, walk one minute” stage — though Carman plans to eventually have them all running for 10 minutes straight. Coquihalla’s vice-principal, Peter
Flynn, has also jumped on the running bandwagon with the lunchtime group — after breaking his leg in a hiking mishap last spring. “It’s really fun!” he enthused. “We’ve got some talented runners this year, too. “I did a lot of running and hiking in the summer and my leg is feeling stronger than the other one now. “Christine is doing a great job of having us do our dynamic stretches before the run and static stretches after,” he added. Currently, the Coquihalla group is running the 1.91 km route used for the school’s annual Terry Fox run. Carman said she’d like to see them extend it an extra few blocks by running right to Wardle Street

before turning back to the school. That should still have them finishing their activity in around 20 minutes. With some runners chomping at the bit to push ahead and others struggling to get in a full two minutes of running, Carman is using the looping technique recommended by SportMed BC. Without it, the group would be stretched apart and hard to supervise. “Once the lead runners have gotten far enough ahead that they’re going to make a turn, I yell ‘loop!’ and they come back and high-five all the others as they pass us, while they’re running to the back end of the pack,” said Carman. “After about 30 seconds, they’re up at the front again.”

embrace life Making informed choices Help on the line A RESOURCE FOR 55+ LIVING
The typical healthcare patient has changed in recent years. No longer are individuals putting all of their healthcare decisions into the hands of nurses and doctors. Patients are more informed than ever before and are interested in taking a more active role in their own care. Thanks to the Internet, people are able to access information that, in the past, was not easily available. A few decades ago, medical data may have been elusive and filled with confusing jargon the layperson might not have understood without a crash course in biology. However, today there are different Web sites that clearly spell out information about certain illnesses and diseases. This means that patients may no longer be walking blindly into appointments with doctors. Facing an illness is never easy, and the decision-making abilities could be hampered by emotions and the desire to improve as quickly as possible. Patients who do not have
Even though medical information is easily accessible over the Internet, there are some things to consider when making health care decisions.
all of the facts may have to rely solely on the expertise of caregivers and physicians when making important healthcare decisions. By knowing the avenues of information, a patient can find assistance with careful decision-making. While learning about an ailment is im-
portant, there are some things to consider. • The Internet isn’t foolproof Many online medical sites are very reliable and offer a wealth of pertinent information. They can be good starting points when seeking out information on a particular condition. It is in your best inter-
est to visit sites that are well-known and monitored by respected medical affiliations. Other sites may be peppered with exaggerated claims or misinformation. Therefore, do not go by online information alone. • Don’t self-diagnose It can be easy to use the Internet as a means to narrowing down symptoms and making assumptions about what ailments you may have. Instead of using the Internet to self-diagnose your condition, leave the diagnosis up to your doctor and rely on online information after you are diagnosed. This can improve your understanding of the condition and any potential treatment options. • Seek other avenues of information You should never hesitate to seek a second opinion or go to a published medical journal to find out more about a condition. You have rights as a patient to be comfortable with the advice doctors give and be as involved in your treatment as you want
211 services Everyone knows 911 is for emergency services, but have you heard about 211? 211 is a phone number for information about referral to all government, community and social serves. Seniors can phone to find resources for housing, government assistance, recreation, support groups, and much more. 211 was launched in 2010 with funding from the United Way and currently operates in the Fraser Valley, Squamish-Lillooet and Metro Vancouver Regional Districts. This services is free, confidential, multilingual and available 24/7. Are you or anyone in your family looking for help? Try calling 211 or find help online at resources. bc211.ca.
The new Seniors Health Care Support Line is now available to provide seniors and their families with support for health-care-related issues that they may have had trouble resolving. Seniors who have issues accessing healthcare services or with the health care they received can now call the Seniors Health Care Support Line to receive timely resolution of problems. This toll-free phone line is available MondayFriday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. by calling 1-877952-3181. This line will supplement existing resolution mechanisms available to support seniors with complex needs who have concerns about their health care. Other ways seniors can get help with resolving care concerns include speaking with their health-care provider, contacting the Patient Care Quality Offices and independent Review Boards, health authorities or the relevant health professional colleges. People can call HealthLink BC at 811 any time of the day or night or go online to www.healthlinkbc.ca for information on how to contact these resources. Hearing impaired services are available by dialing 711.
to be. • Online forums could be more harm than help Many people turn to online forums and blogs to gain more insight into particular diseases. While these forums may be good sources of support, information published on these sites could be misleading, inaccurate or unsafe. Before trying any proposed treatment, it is best to consult with your doctor. Having a general knowledge of a medical condition can enable healthcare consumers to make more informed decisions about their situations.

Nutritious food choices are key Eating well is important at any age, but it is especially important as you get older. Healthy eating is balanced eating, where you consume a variety of foods. It includes protein, carbohydrates (especially fibre), fats and fluids. No matter when you start, healthy eating can help you maintain and even improve your health – especially if you combine it with exercise. Together, healthy eating and regular physical activity can mean the difference between independence and a life spent relying on others. It can give you the energy you need to stay active and do the things you want to do – like working or volunteering, playing with your grandchildren or enjoying a walk around the block. It can also prevent or slow down the progress of many chronic illnesses, such as heart disease and diabetes, osteoporosis
Healthy eating, combined with exercise, can help you maintain and even improve your overall health.
and some forms of cancer. And it can help you cope better with both physical and mental stress, surgery and even the common cold or flu. For many seniors, though, eating well all the time can be a challenge, especially if you’re only cooking for one or two people. You may find you’re much less active than when you were younger or that your sense of taste or smell is not as sharp as it used to be, so you’re not as hungry or interested in food. You may also find it difficult to get out to the grocery store or prepare proper meals. According to the Healthy Eating for Seniors Handbook published by the B.C. Ministry of Health Services, seniors should be eating more vegetables and
fruit, whole grains (for example, breads, pasta, roti, oatmeal and brown rice), legumes (such as dried beans, peas, lentils), fish, calcium-rich foods (including low-fat milk, yogurt and cheese), unsaturated fats (from vegetable oils, nuts and seeds), and lean meat and poultry. Avoid saturated fats (found in butter, ghee, lard, deli meats, bacon and sausages), trans fats (found in processed foods, cookies, cakes and deep fried foods), refined or enriched grains, and salt and sugar (including sugary drinks as well as jams, candies and baked goods). Seniors are also recommended to drink fluids regularly, whether you feel thirsty or not. Woman should try to drink about nine eight-ounce glasses (2.2 litres) of fluids each day, while men should try to drink about 12 eightounce glasses. The Healthy Eating for Seniors Handbook contains many handy tips in one document. To download the handbook, visit www.seniorsbc.ca/ healthyeating Non-emergency health information is also available through HealthLink BC by dialing 811. Seniors can speak to a dietician, nurse, pharmacist or health services representatives.

Participants socialize, play games, and take part in planned activities or presentations. Field trips are also organized a couple times a year.

embrace life Fraud and scams targeted at seniors A RESOURCE FOR 55+ LIVING
Seniors are particularly susceptible to fraud schemes because their generation tends to be more trusting and less likely to end conversations. It’s important to be aware of common consumer frauds and know how you can prevent becoming a victim.
Scam artists continue to use new guises to misrepresent themselves and separate consumers from their cash. Seniors are targeted for many reasons and are particularly susceptible to fraud schemes because their generation tends to be more trusting and less likely to end conversations. “Unfortunately, it’s the old adage that if it’s too good to be true, it is,” said RCMP Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen. “If you’re ever confronted with something that’s likely a scam, talk to your relatives, talk to your children, and talk to the RCMP. Don’t hesitate to come talk to us and verify those issues.” As a consumer, you
must recognize both the risk and responsibility involved with each transaction you make. Whether you are dealing with a door-to-door salesperson, telephone solicitor or through the mail, you are taking a risk. It is your responsibility to be alert, be familiar with common consumer frauds and be well-informed on tips that may prevent you from becoming a victim of fraud. “A lot of the frauds are very difficult to rectify after the money is gone because unfortunately a lot of the money goes out of province and out of country,” said vanNieuwenhuizen. “If we’re unaware, we can’t do anything about it.
WINTER IS COMING! Time to winterize your vehicle.
But if we are aware of it, we can prevent it from happening to somebody else.” Here are five common fraud scams:
1. Grandchild in trouble A criminal contacts an elderly person and pretends to be a grandchild or other family member in trouble with the police. The scammer will tell the victim that he/she has been arrested by a police service outside of their hometown and requires bail money. For verification, the victim is given a phone number to call, which will be answered by someone pretending to be a lawyer or police officer.

Prevention tips: T For verification, get the name of the apparent lawyer/police agency and contact them via the number listed in the phone book or directory assistance. Do not call the number provided by the caller. T If you have call display, write down the caller’s number and provide it to your local police agency when reporting the incident. T Contact family members directly for verification of the whereabouts of the family member in question. T Never send money
through money wire services to persons you do not know personally. The money can be picked up anywhere in the world once it is given a transaction number.
2. Identity theft Identity theft has be-
come an increasingly popular crime in Canada as a result of recent advances in technology. Identity theft involves stealing, misrepresenting or hijacking the identity of another person or business and provides effective means to commit other
crimes. Vital information such as name, address, date of birth, social insurance number, and mother’s maiden name need to be acquired in order to complete the impersonation. Continued on B6

The scammer will insist that the victim not contact their parents or relatives as they don’t want to get into more trouble. The victim is then asked to use a money wire service to send several thousands of dollars for bail. Canadian police agencies do not contact individuals for bail money and do not use money wire services.

Awareness key to helping prevent consumer fraud The identity thief can take over the victim’s financial accounts, open new bank accounts, transfer bank balances, apply for loans, credit cards and other services, purchase vehicles, take luxury vacations, and so on. The true owner may be liable for activities related to identity theft. Prevention tips: T Never throw away bank records or other documents in a readable form. T Never give your credit card number over the telephone unless you make the call. T Never loan your
credit cards or give your PIN number to anyone. T Reconcile your bank account often and notify your bank of discrepancies immediately. Watch your account activity online.
3. Home renovation fraud The person at the door seems genuine and will tell you they just happened to be in the area, they have a crew of workers and material and can give you a special deal or they offer “special senior discounts.” Con artists appear friendly and knowledgeable and will offer
any service whether you need it or not. They will charge amounts exceeding three to four times fair market prices and may not complete the work. Be assured, their true intention is to convince you to sign a contract and to line their own pockets, while they politely empty yours. Prevention tips: T Demand a few days to think about the deal. If the deal is good today, it will be good tomorrow. T Make sure the senior’s discount is legitimate. Find out through other contractors the legitimate

4. Charity scams The caller appears to be soliciting for what is clearly a worthy cause, although you do not recall ever hearing the exact name of the charity before. Many scams are successful because the name of the charity being used in the scam is similar to an easily recognized charity or event. Prevention tip: T Do not send money to an unknown charity. There are so many charities that it is almost impossible to know them all. Do not try. True charitable causes are worthwhile and should be supported. They are frequently listed in the telephone book. Arrange to have your contribution delivered to them directly or ask them to mail you a donation envelope. Using this approach ensures that your donation goes to the charity you wish to support.

With the time changing this weekend and the days getting shorter make sure you can be seen by drivers, when walking or biking. Q A reÅective vest that can be worn over your jacket is a simple solution to visibility issues. Another option would be to put some reÅective tape on the back & front of your existing jacket. Q Carrying a Åashlight or wearing some kind of Åashing light around your neck, so drivers that are approaching you will see you, is another good option. Q Be sure your bicycle has a proper headlight and taillight. A Åashing taillight quickly catches the eye of approaching motorists. T H I S MESSAGE I S SPO NSO RED BY
