Paramedics call decision ‘devastating’ Janaya Fuller-Evans
The provincial government has announced plans to cut 14 ambulances and 45,000 hours – the equivalent of 36 full-time paramedic jobs – from the ambulance fleet in the Lower Mainland, according to the paramedics’ union.
But B.C. Ambulance Service says ambulances and jobs are not being cut. However, non-emergency transportation for patients is being transferred to private contractors. Non-emergency transportation usually involves transferring patients from hospitals to other medical facilities or appointments. The Ambulance Paramedics of B.C. – Local 873 of the Canadian Union of Public
Employees – argued this would have a domino effect on the health-care system. The main issue, however, is that this does not solve the problem of not having enough ambulances overall, according to the Ambulance Paramedics of B.C. “It’s a devastating decision for residents of Burnaby,” said B.J. Chute, director of public education for the paramedics’ union.
He added there is a lack of resources in the Burnaby area as it is, and hospitals such as Royal Columbian in New Westminster are also affected. “Ambulances are tied up for excessive hours at Royal Columbian,” he said. He would like the province to reconsider the transfer of services, Chute added. Paramedics Page 10

Groups wait for the call to help at oil spill Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Burnaby residents may be called on to help in the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. “Our team is on standby,”
said Coleen Doucette of the Oiled Wildlife Society of B.C. “I expect we’ll get called at some point.” The society is part of the Oiled Wildlife Trust, an umbrella organization that includes the Burnaby-based Wildlife Rescue
Association of B.C. and the B.C. SPCA. Doucette said U.S. crews are handling the response so far, but depending on what develops, B.C. residents may be called in as relief workers.
birds lose their ability to regulate body temperature and try to go ashore to keep warm. But because of winds blowing away from the shore, it’s been difficult
Doucette said the oil is hitting the birds out in the water. “A lot of them are probably drowning,” Doucette said. “They’re going to start seeing dead birds soon.” Doucette said oil-covered

Vander Zalm rallies HST troops in Burnaby Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Former premier Bill Vander Zalm is coming to Burnaby to rally the anti-HST troops this Wednesday, May 12. Vander Zalm will speak at an event at the Operating Engineers Hall. In a strange mix of politics, Burnaby mayor Derek
Spill: Helpers ready to go
Corrigan will be the MC for the event. Petitions will be available for signing during the event, which goes from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. The hall is located at 4333 Ledger Ave. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. As well, local residents can now sign the anti-HST petition in any of the public locations in Burnaby. For the signature to be valid, people
have to sign the petition that corresponds to their own provincial riding. Last weekend, organizers made copies of the petition available for each of Burnaby’s four provincial ridings at all of the public locations to sign the petition. So, it doesn’t matter where in the city you sign, as long as you sign the copy for your own riding. People can sign at Waves Coffee House,

for oily seabirds to get to land, she explained. Doucette said Canada’s most sophisticated, well-trained oil spill wildlife rescuers are in the Lower Mainland, and some Burnaby residents could be called on for extra help. Doucette also said Canada needs tougher laws to force oil companies to clean up after spills. Currently, they are legally required to clean up the environment but not the animals. “It’s a total nightmare,” she said, adding the Liberals are trying to end a moratorium on offshore drilling in B.C. “It’s very scary to think this could happen here.” Burnaby resident Sara Dubois is the B.C. SPCA manager of wildlife services and president of the B.C. Oiled Wildlife Society. Dubois said the SPCA has been getting calls from people wanting to help with the spill, but they are redirecting them to www.tristatebird.org, the website for the wildlife rehabilitation group working on the Gulf of Mexico spill. Dubois echoed Doucette’s comments opposing offshore drilling in B.C. and called on the public to challenge MPs on the issue of lifting the moratorium. “People need to ask themselves, is this what we want?” The spill started on April 20, when an undersea oil well ruptured following an explosion and fire that killed 11 workers. An estimated 210,000 gallons a day are seeping into the water in what’s been dubbed the worst oil spill in U.S. history. BP is leasing the drilling rig from Transocean Ltd. and is responsible for the cleanup. For a list of 10 things you can do to help the spill, see Jennifer Moreau’s blog, Community Conversations, at www.burn abynow.com. 6

The Burnaby RCMP raided an apartment in the 7000 block of Elwell Street on Wednesday and discovered a potentially sophisticated drug lab. One man was arrested at the scene but later released. The lab was in a bedroom and had numerous types of glassware, heating mantles and various chemicals. Members of the Burnaby RCMP drug section, along with the provincial clandestine laboratory response team, Health Canada, the Burnaby Fire Department, the B.C. Ambulance Service and Hazco Environmental Services were also part of the operation. The clandestine laboratory response team and Health Canada determined that the lab had the ability and equipment to produce illegal chemical drugs, but no evidence was located to support illegal drug production. “Even though no charges have been laid at this point, it is important to emphasize the dangers of chemical labs in residential buildings,” said Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Ted De Jager in a prepared release. De Jager also warned that chemical laboratories contain solvents, strong acids, corrosive base materials and volatile chemicals such as reagents or reducers. “These chemicals can be highly volatile and extremely dangerous,” said De Jager. “The risk of chemical fires or explosions and the risk of noxious or fatal gases are hazards that are frequently encountered at chemical laboratories. The location of these chemical laboratories creates extreme hazards, as they are found in residential settings where neighbouring properties and persons are at risk of exposure or injury.” De Jager advised anybody who suspects there is a chemical lab in their neighbourhood to call 911 or Crimestoppers at 1-800222-TIPS (8477).

The Heights was swinging on Thursday night. Roughly 150 people turned up to celebrate the return of the “Swinging Girl” sign in the Heights. The Heights Merchants Association hosted the ceremony to mark the reinstallation of the swinging girl sign, a neon fixture that hung on Hastings Street for more than five decades. “It was magical,” said Isabel Kolic, executive director of the Heights Merchants Association. “It was quite the thing, actually, when the mayor pulled the switch and everyone’s faces lit up under the neon lights.” The swinging girl sign hung over Helen’s Children’s Wear for more than 50 years. The sign was removed after the shop closed in 2007. Shop owner Helen Arnold was leasing the neon sign from Sicon Signs. The City of Burnaby partnered with Sicon to refurbish the fixture, which now reads Heights instead of Helen’s. The city also designated it a heritage landmark. The sign is now in the care of the association and the city. The swinging girl will be back in her original place, but the shop space is now an extension of Cioffi’s Meat Market and Gourmet Kitchen. – firstname.lastname@example.org

City OK’s sets green targets Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Burnaby council approved a plan to reduce the city’s greenhouse gas emissions at Monday’s meeting. The community plan amendment proposal, to comply with provincial targets, was approved unanimously. Under the Local Governments (Green Communities) Statutes Amendment Act, municipal governments have to institute official community plans by May 31, which include greenhouse gas emission reduction targets, and the plan for achieving these targets. The amendment passed on Monday included an interim reduction target of five per cent below 2007 levels. Council voted to approve amending
Burnaby’s official community plan to include the new target and allow staff to take the next steps to make the amendment official under the Local Government Act. In Burnaby, the majority of emissions – 96 per cent – come from combustion of fossil fuels, while four per cent comes from the decomposition of organic matter, according to the report presented to council. Greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced via land use planning and zoning, land development regulatory powers, road standards and on-street parking, development approvals and controls, operation policies and actions, and capital spending, according to the report from the community development committee. email@example.com
HST: Several petition sites in city continued from page 3
People can also sign in the parking lot at the corner of Royal Oak and Rumble Street, on Sundays, starting May 9, from 1 to 3 p.m. There have also been regular anti-HST rallies in front of Richard Lee’s office, the MLA for Burnaby North. The Burnaby North NDP constituency association organizes those rallies. The petition can be signed at the rally every Thursday, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. The office is at 1833 Willingdon Ave., just across from Brentwood Town Centre. The petition will also
be at Crystal Mall, 4500 Kingsway, every Sunday, from 1 to 3 p.m. For more details on how to find that one inside the mall, see www.fighthst.com. The petition has to be signed in front of an official canvasser who is registered with Elections B.C. – you cannot sign online. Canvassers have until July 5 to collect signatures from 10 per cent of registered voters in each of B.C.’s 85 electoral districts. If that happens, a committee of MLAs decides what happens next: a bill attached to petition could
go through the legislature or there could be an initiative vote, similar to a public referendum. The bill attached to the petition calls for an end to the agreement between the provincial and federal government to bring in the HST. For more on the Fight HST campaign that’s circulating the petition, see fighthst.com. Keep checking their website for updates. For more on this issue, see Jennifer Moreau’s blog, Community Conversations, at www.burnabynow.com.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Is MLA misleading the public? Dear Editor:
In his May 1 letter to the editor of Burnaby NOW, MLA Richard Lee claims he doesn’t know which B.C. Liberal campaign materials referenced the HST. Of course he does. During the past election, the B.C. Liberals wrote the B.C. Restaurant and Food Association and said “a harmonized GST is not something that is contemplated in the B.C. Liberal platform.” Not only that, but the B.C. Liberals also gave good reasons for why they were opposed to a harmonized sales tax, stating “it would extend the PST tax base to a broader range of goods and services that are presently exempt from the provincial sales

tax. … This is a major concern. The B.C. Liberals are also mindful that a harmonized GST would reduce the provincial government’s ability to unilaterally adjust sales tax rates.” The truth is that the B.C. Liberals said one thing during the election, and then they broke their word. To make matters worse, last week the B.C. Liberals cut off debate and forced through the HST legislation. In dismissing the valid concerns of Burnaby residents and joining with his party to force through the HST, it is clear that Mr. Lee is unwilling to stand up for his community. Worse, he continues to this day to mislead the public. Kathy Corrigan and Raj Chouhan, MLAs, Burnaby

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Private school about faith, not ‘better education’ Dear Editor:
Re: ‘Two-tiered’ education, Letters to the editor, Burnaby NOW, April 28. After reading the letter sent in from Ms. Aldina Isbister, I felt compelled to write my own personal view of private versus public education. I believe that there are just as many assumptions made about private education as there are about public education. My husband and I chose to send our children to a Christian school … it just happens to be a private school. For Ms. Isbister to “assume” that all students in a private school are there for a better education is incorrect. As well, to “assume” that none of the 20 to 25 students in each classroom have challenges or special needs is incorrect as well. Our motivations on choosing a private school is based on our religious beliefs, not on the theory that we will have bettereducated kids. Marleen Noort, Burnaby
Backbench MLAs were kept in the dark on HST Dear Editor:
Re: Letter revealed misconceptions, Letters to the editor, Burnaby NOW, May 1. Five months prior to last May’s provincial election, Gordon Campbell
was informed about the HST by a B.C. Progressive Board report (Investment British Columbia: Current Realities and the Way Forward). Campbell’s backbenchers, just like the citizens, are kept in the dark on all government issues. That is reason why Mr. Richard T. Lee never spoke of the HST during last May’s election. He knew nothing about it. When Carole Taylor was minister of finance, she was lobbied several times by business and Ottawa on behalf of the HST. Surely Mr. Lee remembers that. In her view, such a tax would punish the consumers, plus she did not want to give up the province’s numerous sales tax exemptions. Ms. Taylor’s answer was: “Not on my watch.” The “facts” Mr. Lee quotes regarding benefits of HST appear to be taken from a report commissioned by the B.C. Liberals by Mr. Jack Mintz, former head of the C.D. Howe Institute, a dedicated rightwing institute, now with the University of Calgary, a hotbed of right-wing theorists. Past B.C. Liberal MLA John Nuraney has spoken out against the HST, claiming his business (A&W franchises) would experience a drop in sales. Perhaps Mr. Lee can inform his friend that’s a good thing. The political consequences for Mr. Lee’s insistence on supporting this tax is a failure to represent his hard-working constituents and a loss of political position in 2013. Looks like it’s back to UBC TRIUMF for Mr. Lee.

Homelessness: Work needs support social service agencies, business and faith communities and concerned citizens to ensure the provision of housing, support services and health care to people who are dealing with homelessness or at risk of homelessness in Burnaby. The Burnaby Task Force on Homelessness is fortunate to have amongst our membership the expertise to provide a continuum of housing as well as the experience of successful models of housing in neighbouring communities. The continuum of housing for which we advocate in Burnaby is designed to assist people with leaving the street, providing support services and expertise to deal with medical care, addiction
and mental health difficulties. As people become stabilized, they are provided with supported transitional housing to remain off the streets and learn longterm solutions to leading productive lives. Our work needs your support. If you would like to be kept up to date about our work, please visit www.burnabyhomelesstaskforce.org.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Mayor missed Dear Editor:
This week the provincial government returned more than $2.9 million to communities across the province in the form of Climate Action Incentive Rebates. This is a program that returns 100 per cent of the carbon tax costs back to communities who have signed on to the Climate Action Charter, meaning they are committed to the health of our planet by being carbon neutral by 2012. More than 90 per cent of the communities in the province have committed to the charter. City councils around B.C. – no matter their political ideology – agreed that climate action is an important initiative. Unfortunately, the City of Burnaby is once again on the outside looking in. Burnaby’s mayor and council decided not to sign the Climate Action Charter, and therefore, they decided they didn’t want their carbon tax expenditures rebated to the taxpayers of Burnaby. Mayor Derek Corrigan and council’s decision to
forgo this funding is a classic case of cutting off one’s nose to spite their face. The mayor and councillors are all part of the Burnaby Citizens’ Association, membership in which requires membership in the B.C. NDP. It’s clear that for partisan political grandstanding, Mayor Corrigan has not only ignored the reality of climate change but has shortchanged Burnaby’s taxpayers to the tune of thousands of dollars which they deserved. Richmondreceivedmore than $100,000 in Climate Action Incentive Rebates this year. Burnaby should have had the same. This mayor’s actions cost Burnaby the Olympic Oval, and missing out on the carbon tax rebate is another sad example of how silly politics is trumping sound policy. This lack of concern for the environment and the citizens of Burnaby is upsetting. The citizens of Burnaby deserve an explanation as to why our council was the only council in the Lower Mainland not to sign the Provincial Climate Action Charter. Our province is leading

I pay taxes, too
Dear Editor: Re: Private versus public?, Burnaby NOW, April 14. It is clear once again that administrators are not able to see the forest from the trees. From my perspective as a parent with two children in a private school, there needs to be a business-based financial reality check put into play here. From the administrators’ point of view, they have to remember that class size and financial implications are tied hand in hand, where x number of students gets x dollars
to run the school, but this is not a linear equation. The government bases their budgets on a sliding scale where the larger the school, the less needed for administrative overhead, and thus they need to balance the funding against the student body. If there is no private/ alternate schools available, more kids would be in the public system, causing more pressure on the infrastructure and teachers (more kids-to-teacher ratio). By allowing a 50 per cent tax subsidy to alternate/private schools, parents who opt out of the
public system allow for a more controlled class size and less strain on the whole system. As a counterpoint to not subsidizing the private/ alternate system, does this mean my taxes will be reduced by a nominal amount? Simply put, I pay my taxes like everyone else; part of my taxes goes to roads, police and education. If we are going to begin bickering about this, then I also want taxation by representation, and this could mean I want some rollback. Oh, wait … This is not the U.S.A. Csaba Knezy, Vancouver

We need to make the right choices now and commit to protecting our future generations. If we act now, then it will be easier to reach our goals. I sincerely hope that carbon neutrality is something that the City of Burnaby will consider very soon and get on board with the rest of the Lower Mainland and the world, for our children’s sake.

GOVT. GAVE AWAY $970,000 WORTH OF TICKETS
Telus execs, business leaders received 2010 Olympic tickets Provincial government releases report on Olympic ticket allocation Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Business leaders in Burnaby received complimentary tickets to 2010 Olympic events from the provincial government, according to the government’s Report on Integrated Housing and Ticketing. Burnaby Tourism’s executive director, Matthew Coyne, was given $400 worth of tickets to a men’s preliminary ice hockey game between the Czech Republic and Latvia. Three Telus executives – Jason MacDonnell, vice-president of customer solutions; Michael McCarthy, acting manager of business solutions B.C.; and Tim Draper, vice-president of sales and marketing – each received $400 worth of tickets to a men’s preliminary ice hockey game between Belarus and Sweden. However, a Telus representative
told the Burnaby NOW the company and its executives had not received any Olympic tickets in an interview for a previous article. “We weren’t an Olympic sponsor, so we didn’t have tickets,” said Shawn Hall, a media relations representative. Hall also said in an e-mail that executives and staff did not distribute tickets bought with their own money, to his knowledge, and the company did not give any away. Hall was responding to questions about whether or not Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan had received tickets from Telus during the time that the city was in mitigation with the company over a contract issue. Both Corrigan and Hall denied the mayor had received any tickets in the article, titled Mayor says he didn’t get tickets from Telus; Setting the record straight, which ran on April 10. At the time, Hall was unaware of any tickets that were received by anyone at Telus, he said in a followup phone interview on May 7. But it wasn’t just Burnaby’s business leaders who received tickets from
the B.C. government. The Burnaby Village Museum, under Deborah Tuyttens’ name – the museum services supervisor – received two sets of tickets, each set worth $400, to a men’s preliminary ice hockey game between the Czech Republic and Latvia. Burnaby South Secondary received two blocks of tickets to the Vancouver victory celebration, though the cash amount of tickets wasn’t specified in the report. The government spent $970,000 in total on tickets dispensed to politicians, business leaders and the public, according to the report. Half of the 4,600 tickets went to companies and businesses in B.C, and about 43 per cent went to the public through contests and giveaways. Three per cent went to cabinet ministers and MLAs. The government bought 3,750 of the tickets while VANOC gave the province 910 additional tickets to events. The hosting program cost the B.C. government $2.7 million in total.

Orthopedic surgeons worried about waits Surgeons say response times need to consider patient safety Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Orthopedic surgeons in B.C. are hopeful that a meeting with Fraser Health will cause the health authority to revert to the surgeon’s previous on-call response times. The British Columbia Orthopaedic Association has received confirmation of a May 10 meeting with Fraser Health’s CEO Dr. Nigel Murray to address the surgeons’ concerns. “Without consulting any orthopedic surgeons, on April 1, the health authority downgraded our response time from 30 minutes to two hours, with no consideration for patient safety,” said Dr. Albert Chan, the association’s regional director, in a press release. “We are pleased to finally have a date for our first meeting,” Chan added. The surgeons are most concerned about patients with serious musculoskeletal injuries, such as compound fractures or flesh-
eating disease, who must be treated right away, he said. If the health authority does not go back to the original 30-minute response time, Chan said, the surgeons would have to make further service changes to their schedules. Scheduling changes were to be implemented on April 19 if the 30-minute response time wasn’t reinstated, Chan and Dr. Jim Rose, the association’s acting regional director for Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Care Clinic, wrote in an open letter sent to Murray on April 13. “Until we can come to an agreement with the health authority about returning to our original response time for the appropriate care of our patients, we are adjusting our service schedules.” This would mean surgeons at sites other than Royal Columbian Hospital would accept emergency consultation and admissions in rotation. An agreement made with the B.C. Ambulance Service would ensure on-call surgeons would still treat patients effectively, the doctors added. Orthopedics Page 11
Paramedics: Will cuts hurt patients? continued from page 1
“We would like to see this revisited.” CUPE 873’s president, John Strohmaier, was also frustrated about the situation. “Fewer ambulances and fewer paramedics dealing with a growing population and an estimated 29,000 additional calls in the next year equals longer wait times and more backlogs in the health system,” Strohmaier said in a press release. “Patients will pay the price of these cuts.” A comprehensive joint study by the B.C. Ambulance Service and the union carried out in 2008 called for more ambulances just to try to keep up with growing call volumes. But the B.C. Ambulance Service said calls for patient transfers from one facility to another have decreased by 33 per cent since 2008. “Therefore, BCAS does not require the same number of transfer staff and ambulances to undertake this work as we have previously,” Chris Harbord, manager of communications for the B.C. Ambulance Service, wrote in an e-mail. Only 28 of the 35 positions being cut are
currently filled, Harbord added, and the government hopes to cut the other positions through attrition rather than layoffs. According to Harbord, the union is fighting the transfer of services rather than working with the ambulance service to make the transfer with minimal layoffs. According to Health Minister Kevin Falcon, contracting out these services in Metro Vancouver saved health authorities $2 million last year. CUPE 873 has been in contract negotiations with the provincial government since April, when the union’s contract was up. The four main issues are wages, job security, the need for more ambulances and compensation for on-call paramedics, according to the paramedics’ union. The provincial government’s legislation ordered paramedics back to work in September, after the union gave strike notice, and negotiations have stalled since then, according to Chute. There are 3,500 ambulance paramedics in B.C.; 1,400 full-time and 2,100 part-time employees. firstname.lastname@example.org

Orthopedics: Surgeons raise concern about response times continued from page 10
“Beyond the critical cases, prompt orthopedic assessment also helps with the efficient flow of patients through our emergency departments.” The letter went on to state that the association was supported in its position by other orthopedic organizations. “The Canadian Orthopaedic Association advocates level 1 response level for all orthopedic hospitals. The University of British Columbia’s department of orthopedics and Vancouver General Hospital’s orthopedic trauma group also support orthopedic surgery at MOCAP level 1,” the doctors wrote. The Interior Health Authority instituted

a change to a two-hour response time as well, Dr. Chan said, but last week agreed to reinstate the orthopedic surgeons’ 30minute response times. Fraser Health is now the only health authority in the province with the longer response times, according to Chan. Fraser Health did not want to comment on the issue prior to the meeting. The Ministry of Health would not comment on the situation. “In the meantime, Fraser Health is ensuring patients continue to have access to safe and appropriate care for orthopedic emergencies,” Joan Marshall, spokesperson for Fraser Health, wrote in an e-mail. firstname.lastname@example.org

City hosts free events to get people moving towards better health and more active lives Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
More than four months since New Year’s resolutions were made, Move for Health Day is here to get people back on track with their fitness and health goals. May 10 is B.C.’s Move for Health Day, and Burnaby’s parks department is holding a number of free events to celebrate. “What we try to do is offer a huge selection,” said Rainy Kent, coordinator of Burnaby’s Move for Health events. “(We want) to make it as convenient as we can, for as many people as we can.” In 2009, the city held a walk around Deer Lake, but it was easier to coordinate the large, community-based event because May 10 fell on a weekend last year, Kent explained. This year, community centres and parks throughout the city will offer free classes and events to showcase what activity the city has to offer. Bonsor Recreation Complex is hosting free athletic classes and seminars all day long. There are opportunities to talk to a per-

The parent groups from Cascade Heights and Inman elementaries are joining forces to organize a spring fair for Thursday, May 27. The fair features games, food and prizes. There will also be a teacher dunk-tank. All money raised benefits the two schools. Local MLA Kathy Corrigan is expected
to attend. The fair runs 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. and is at Cascade Heights, 4343 Smith Ave.
Hike for hospice
Community members gathered on May 2 for the annual Hike for Hospice and Palliative Care fundraiser in Burnaby. Preliminary counts show this year’s local hike raised more than $9,000. “I am overwhelmed by the support Burnaby
residents have shown for this event,” said Diana Li, executive director of the Burnaby Hospice Society. “Thanks to the hard work of all our volunteers and participants, this year’s event was a great success. I am proud to say that the efforts of people in this community are making a difference and helping to improve the lives of people who are going through the end-of-life process.” The hike is a cross-
Canada event. Last year, thousands of people raised more than $1 million through the hike. Money raised goes to hospice palliative care programs. The Burnaby Hospice Society is a volunteer organization that helps people facing death as well as their families and friends. Each year, more that 500 families get help through the society’s free hospice palliative and bereavement programs.

Burnaby filmmaker in multicultural showcase
Burnaby doctor and actor Yvette Lu is once again in the spotlight for the Shaw Multicultural Channel’s annual Filmmakers Showcase. The program, presented in celebration of Asian Heritage Month, is a co-production with ExplorASIAN, a month-long celebration of
Asian and Asian-Canadian arts and culture in the Lower Mainland. The Filmmakers Showcase is broadcast on Shaw Multicultural Channel (Cable 119) on Sunday, May 9 at 9 p.m. and midnight, and on Shaw TV (Cable 4) on Sunday, May 23 at 9 p.m. It’s a showcase of short

films by local filmmakers that explore, portray or celebrate the Asian-Canadian experience. Lu, who also works part-time as a family doctor, collaborated with local filmmaker Jonas Salzberg to write, produce and direct one of the showcased films, Baby Donut. Salzberg, a graduate of both BCIT and Simon Fraser University, has worked on shows such as The Week The Women Went (CBC) and was part of the NBC broadcast team for the 2010 Winter Olympics. Baby Donut is a comingof-age story that explores the struggle of how to find one’s identity. It tells the story of Jeremy, a young English as a second language teacher, and the sexy Japanese exchange student Kumiko. “As we grow up, we face constant pressure to be what others and society want us
to be,” Lu said in a press release. “We are bombarded by expectations from friends, families, lovers and even strangers, and we find ourselves going to incredible lengths to cope with or escape these pressures.” In the film, she said, Jeremy and Kumiko are both trapped in their own ways, “and how they deal with their challenges is unique, funny, sad, sweet and, ultimately, very real.” Baby Donut is Lu’s third project for the Filmmakers Showcase. Last year, she starred in A Table for One, a short drama about coping with depression. In 2008, she was the lead in Food for the Gods, a futuristic sci-fi/romance that has since screened at festivals across North America. For more about Lu, see her website at www.yvette lu.com.

Bollywood comedy LIVELY CITY
ere’s one that looks like rather a lot of fun for fans of Bollywood or stand-up comedy – or both. Bollywood Shenanigans and South Asian Arts are presenting I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Chicken! – The “Best Of” Show.
The live sketch comedy night is written by Leena Manro and Munish Sharma, and among the performers is Burnaby’s own Kallol Mitra. So what can you expect? Here’s the description that came my way in a recent press release: “Imagine taking a little bit of Saturday Night Live, mixing it with some ol’ skool In Living Colour, throwing in a scoop of ethnic, sprinkling a little singing ‘n’ dancing and topping it off with a whole lot of Bollywood. You’re going to get something so
tasty it’ll make you scream … ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Chicken!’” Want in on the fun? The comedy night costs $15 in advance, or $20 at the door. Buy at Ticket Web online, www.ticket web.ca. It’s happening at the CBC Studio 700, 700 Hamilton St. in downtown Vancouver. Shows are May 13 to 15 at 8 p.m. and May 15 at 4 p.m.

Giro di Burnaby are getting exposure in Toronto. Luigia Zilli has an exhibition called Bicycle Art underway at the Joseph D. Carrier Gallery in Toronto. The show includes paintings on canvas depicting bicycles and cyclists. Along with the 35 paintings, Zilli will be showing the Giro di Burnaby trophy – which she designed – and the street banner she created for the Heights. The show runs until June 2. Check out www. carriergallery.com. And check out Zilli’s website, www.luigiazilli. com, for more details about what she’s up to these days.
Theatre fans, don’t forget that Metro Theatre’s And Then There Were None opens tonight. Burnaby’s Alison Schamberger, a longtime drama teacher at Burnaby North Secondary before her retirement, is taking
the helm as director of the classic Agatha Christie murder mystery. John Cole, Christine Egerton Ball, Tracy Labrosse, Tom Stevens, John-David Pall, Tom Kavadias, John Hedgecock, Nina Shoroplova, Lawrence Green, Scott Woods and Tom Dyer appear in the production. The play, adapted from her novel for the stage by Christie in 1943, tells the story of 10 strangers who are invited to a lavish estate on an island. Through a recording, a mysterious host accuses each of his “guests” of murder and proceeds to exact “justice.” The tension mounts as, one by one, the guests die at the hands of an unseen killer – until only two are left, each wondering whether the other is the killer. And Then There Were None opens tonight (Saturday) and runs Wednesdays through Saturdays until June 5, with shows at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $15/$18 and can be bought through the box office at 604-266-7191. Metro Theatre is at 1370 Southwest Marine Dr. in Vancouver.
How else to answer the major questions plaguing humanity but through art? The Things We Do, a five-person show featuring work by Helen Eady, Cindy Loehr, Karen Ostrom, Marcia Pitch and Elizabeth Zvonar, is running May 15 to June 30 at the Simon Fraser University Gallery. “In an age rife with metaphysical confusion, The Things We Do … settles most of the major questions that have been plaguing humanity lately,” a press release explains. “Talking and gesturing hands, erotic arms, mongrel figures and arguing animals are all on view in an effort to guide us through the errors of our collective ways. … In Vancouver’s post-Olympic, triumphal moment, this
In the spotlight
exhibition is a modest, understated guide to the future evolutionary arc of the species.” For those who are intrigued, the exhibition’s opening is set for Saturday, May 15 from 3 to 4 p.m. There will also be lunchtime talks in connection with the exhibition. They’re set for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, June 2, 3 and 4. Talks for classes or groups can be scheduled by contacting the gallery. The gallery is in room 3004 of the Academic Quadrangle at SFU’s Burnaby campus, 8888 University Dr. It’s open Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. For more, see www.sfu. ca/gallery, e-mail gallery@ sfu.ca or call 778-782-4266.

Camping is tops A
ccording to the 2009 Active Healthy Kids Canada report card, Canadian children and youth received a failing grade for physical activity levels.
With kids spending as much as six hours a day online, playing video games and watching television, parents should be making a conscious effort to get themselves and their children outside to increase their levels of physical activity. “A family camping trip is a great way to not only be active with fun activities like hiking, canoeing and swimming but it is also a way to address the nature deficient behaviours that urban children in particular experience when they do not have opportunities to connect with our natural environment,” says Dr. Mark Tremblay, director of healthy active living and obesity research at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and chief scientific officer of Active Healthy Kids Canada. “That’s a real shame in a country like Canada that prides itself on its access to the world’s biggest and most interesting playground –nature.”
“We’ve been helping families and friends get together to socialize and connect with nature for as long as we’ve been making lanterns and stoves,” says Pat Gray, director of marketing at Coleman Canada.
“Opening doors to physical activity, camping is the original social networking!” Families can get the most out of their camping experience by spending time together and having fun – not struggling with campsite set up. For first-timers preparing for their initial foray into the woods, the Coleman family camping package, which includes a family-sized Sundome tent, two sleeping bags and two chairs, is a great place to start. More information regarding the Active Healthy Kids Canada report card can be found online at www. activehealthykids.ca. Additional information regarding family fun and camping can be found online at www.colemancanada.ca. – (NC)

Hot time for writing skills
ummer will be here sooner than we think! Children will be looking forward to the warm weather, fun activities with friends and vacation time.
But summer can also be an enjoyable learning experience. The summer break provides many memorable moments, and writing about them is a good way to
PUDDLE SPLASHERS Childcare Society

record those memories and practice writing skills at the same time. Parents tend to focus on their children’s reading and math skills, overlooking that writing is an education fundamental. It’s fast becoming the forgotten ‘R’. This is unfortunate, as writing is an important part of every facet of education, not just in Language Arts or English class. Writing proficiency can have a major impact on other subject areas, too. Summer vacation provides an excellent opportunity for children to explore their creative writing skills.
Weekly Summer fieldtrips to places like Splashdown Waterpark, Playland, The Planetarium and other exciting places that your child will love!
Sylvan Learning, the leading provider of tutoring to students of all ages and skill levels, has developed the following tips to help parents encourage their children to write over the summer:
Pick an Engaging Topic Persuading your child to write over the summer break may be easier if you help them identify fun and engaging topics. Suggest timely subjects. • For example, Canada Day on July 1st is a good opportunity for your children to explore their own patriotism. • Ask them if they know what patriotism is, and what it means to them. Encourage your children by helping them with some research about their country, its history, people and places. Give Story Starters Sometimes the most difficult part of writing can be getting started. Help your children write their patriotic paragraphs/essays by giving them topic ideas, such as: See page 25 ...

• I am proud to be Canadian because … • On July 1st, my family and I usually … • If someone asked me what my country means to me, I would say … Sylvan Tips on Writing • Good writing takes time. Spend time organizing your ideas and thinking about what you really want to say in your paragraph/essay. • Use the Internet or library to research your topic. • Prepare an outline before you begin to write.
• Use transition words – such as “after,” “although,” “before,” “however” and “therefore” to help your ideas flow together. • Be willing to revise. Change your sentences around, add material that lends to your writing and delete material that doesn’t work. • Avoid clichés, slang and jargon. • Always keep a dictionary handy to help with spelling. • Use a thesaurus to help you think of a new way to say something. • Ask someone else to edit your work.
Sylvan Learning can help students improve their writing skills over the summer and be prepared to head back into the classroom. The Sylvan Academic Writing program is designed to help students understand many writing formats and styles, including illustrative and descriptive essays, comparative passages, persuasive writing, expository writing, summaries and outlines. Students in the program also complete exercises in grammar, spelling, vocabulary, paragraph structure and essay development. Additionally, Sylvan can help high school students prepare for college/university and the workplace with its new College Prep Writing program. College Prep Writing is a 36-hour program providing a solid foundation in upperlevel writing, including “how-to” help with essays, refining research skills and understanding source documentation. Visit the “Writing” area of www. SylvanLearning.ca to learn how Sylvan’s individualized approach can help your child build writing skills that will last a lifetime.

The secret life of a full-sized family sedan Ford Taurus SHO is a high-performance, sporty offering David Chao and Bob McHugh NOW contributors
he “sleeper” sports sedan is a special breed of automobile. The undercover agent of the auto world, it looks, works and lives what appears to be an ordinary life – until called into action! The new Ford Taurus is an award-winning full-sized family sedan. The Ford Taurus SHO, the focus of this review, looks the same and can do all the things a conventional Taurus can do, yet it’s a high-performance double (agent). Possibly the most innovative sedan Ford has ever brought to the market, Taurus offers an impressive selection of new high-tech features, some of which are not even available on much pricier vehicles. An outstanding passenger-protection system is also combined with style, performance and a high degree of comfort. The original Taurus SHO
(Super High Output) was introduced back in 1989, and power came from a high-revving (220horsepower, twin-overhead camshaft) Yamaha built V-6 engine. It only came with a manual transmission, was a hoot to drive and is still treasured by Ford purists. A second generation followed in ‘92 with an optional automatic transmission and a specially (de-tuned) version of the V-6. The downward trend continued when a forgettable V-8 powered third (and last) generation SHO was introduced about 10 years ago. The less said about this car, the better. The new Taurus SHO is a comeback car for Ford that captures the spirit of the ‘89 car. Power is provided by a new Ford-built EcoBoost V-6 engine that also answers the fuel-efficiency and environmental concerns of today’s car buyer. The 3.5-litre direct-injection, twin-turbocharged V-6 is the largest and most powerful of Ford’s new family of EcoBoost engines. It can generate 365 horsepower at 5,500 r.p.m., and 350 lb.-ft. of torque is available from 1,500 to 5,250 r.p.m.

Double agent: The new Ford Taurus SHO is an innovative sedan that offers high-tech features, performance and outstanding safety for passengers. In addition to impressive power and a broad torque band, this Eco-Boost engine also provides excellent fuel economy when compared to similar power normally aspirated
engines. City fuel economy is rated at 12.3 l/100 km and on the highway it can get 8.0 l/100 km. The base 3.5-litre Duratec V-6 offers a maximum of 263 horse-
power and 249 lb.-ft. of torque, which is more than adequate for this size of vehicle. In the entry level front-drive Taurus, fuel economy is a little better at Taurus SHO Page 31

MOTORING Taurus SHO: Elegant and high-tech sedan is a definite winner continued from page 29
11.6 l/100 km in the city and 7.2 l/100 km on the highway. Add all-wheel-drive, and fuel consumption is the same. The SHO comes with a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, allwheel-drive and just about every option, except for navigation and active cruise control packages. It also has a special sport-tuned suspension with unique shock absorbers, springs, stabilizer bars, strut mount bushings and a 20-inch wheel and tire package. A quicker and more direct electric power-assisted steering system plus an upgraded four-wheel disc brake system are both standard. There’s a “Sport Mode” setting for the standard AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control, and a shorter 3.16: 1 final drive ratio helps provide even crisper acceleration. The lengthy list of standard SHO equipment includes the SYNC voice-activated communications system, intelligent (door frame keypad) access and push-button start, dual-electronic climate control, MyKey (parental security), automatic high beams/rain sensing windshield wipers, auto-dimming interior and driver’s side mirrors, a Sony audio system, BLIS blind spot information system with Cross Traffic Alert and a rear view camera. Taurus comes in SE, SEL and Limited editions in addition to SHO. The base price is $28,949, and SHO starts at $48,199. My test SHO came with the Navi and Active
Cruise packages and a $53,749 price tag.
Somewhat conservative yet an elegant and attractive design, the new Taurus should be a good fit with its target market, the mature buyer and business person. Apart from some discreet badges, the big wheels and rear spoiler are the most visible signs that it’s the SHO.
Distinguishing features inside include leather-trimmed seats with Miko (made from recycled materials) suede inserts, a perforated leather-wrapped steering wheel, 10-way power seats, aluminum gas and brake pedals (adjustable), real aluminum trim, and there’s SHO branding on the floor mats and dash panel. The leather seats look good, accommodate a full-size frame and have heating and cooling features. The rear seats come with heaters, leg room in both the front and back is good, and the trunk is huge. It’s a great car to take on a long drive.
The 2010 Taurus has an advanced crash safety structure that recently earned it a U.S. government five-star rating in front and side crash tests. It has also earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s “Top Safety Pick” ranking. Advanced collision avoidance technolo-
gies include a radar-enabled advanced collision warning system and an optional active cruse control system. A unique Cross Traffic Alert system warns a driver of rear crisscross traffic when backing out of a parking stall or a driveway. Included with the Adaptive Cruise Control option package is a new radarbased forward collision warning system that helps a driver avoid accidents. It detects moving vehicles ahead and provides a visual “heads-up” warning signal and an audible warning when there’s a collision risk with slower-moving traffic. Taurus also features faster acting side air bags that deploy up to 30 percent faster than traditional air bags.
Other than the steering wheel mounted shifter paddles, no big surprises inside the comfortable cabin. Adjustable pedals help make it easier and safer for shorter-legged drivers to find a comfortable position. Modern automatics like the six-speed SelectShift in the SHO are on par with a manual transmission in terms of efficiency (fuel economy) and driver enjoyment (manual shift capabilities). Either steering wheel paddle allowed both up down shifts without taking a hand off the wheel – a clever design. Paddle use, however, does not override auto and first requires a floor lever shift to a manual position. Power and acceleration is smooth and easy and very impressive. The low-speed

engine power, particularly on a steep hill, makes it feel like there’s a much larger engine under the hood. The turbo boost is action is hardly noticeable. For a big and fairly heavy vehicle, the SHO’s handling is exceptional. It tracks beautifully and is very stable on the highway.

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS May 2-8, 2010
Community Preparedness: Tips for getting involved
Recent disasters around the world, and here in Canada, have demonstrated the importance of communities becoming prepared for emergencies of all types. The goal of Emergency Preparedness Week, which runs from May 2-8, is to encourage Canadians to become more engaged in emergency preparedness activities, like the ones listed on www.EPweek.ca. As a member of your community, here are some things you can do to get more involved: • Talk to your friends, family and co-workers about emergency preparedness. Develop the plans you need to make sure you are ready. • Volunteer to help your neighbours and co-workers get prepared, and consider volunteering for a local emergency organization.
• Lead efforts in your community. Educate others by teaching them of the importance of emergency preparedness and by encouraging groups to coordinate their efforts. • Take stock of the emergency response agencies in your community. Ask them what they need and how you can help. Remember, emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere. Experience has shown that individual preparedness goes a long way towards communities being able to cope better – both during and after a major disaster. Information and additional tips on Emergency Preparedness are available at www.GetPrepared.ca.
Emergency Disaster Homepack Be prepared to be on your own without help for 72 hours or more, at home, in your car or at work. The following are some suggestions for your own Emergency Disaster Homepack. • Water – 3-day supply (minimum 1 litre per person per day; ideally 4 litres a day) • Water puriﬁcation tablets • Food Bars for three days • Clothing • Walking shoes • Work gloves • Dust mask • Goggles • Emergency blanket • Emergency poncho • Multi-purpose knife • 12-hour light sticks • String (miscellaneous uses, e.g. shoelaces) • Favourite toy/picture of family • Games (deck of cards) • Personal toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, facecloth, mirror, comb, etc.
• Flashlight • Battery-powered radio • Batteries • Sportsman’s saw • Survival bag (shelter) • Whistle • Pouch with money (should include coins) • Medicine (include Rx and Rx glasses)

Old Caseys coming to bat in Burnaby Tom Berridge
The old boys of summer will be coming to Burnaby and New Westminster this year. The Lower Mainland Baseball Association will be playing host to the 18th annual Canadian National Oldtimers Baseball Federation championships and Burnaby will be its epicentre. Queen’s Park Stadium, Robert Burnaby Park and Central Park will host the majority of the approximately 80 games, including all three championship finals, which will be played over the B.C. Day long weekend from July 30 to Aug. 2. As many as 30 hardball teams will be competing in three separate age divisions, including 35and-over, 44-plus and an over-50
Water polo pair share gold
age group that already is shaping up to be the must-see event at this year’s nationals, said tournament co-chair and LMBA commissioner Dan Taylor of Burnaby. “Although the 50-and-over has only competed in the last three years, the three teams who have won are all here. Nine teams have applied to play so far,” Taylor said. “I think it’s a reflection on oldtimer baseball because our league and the league in PoCo guys are playing longer.” That is one of the main reasons why an over-50 division was added to the championships. Red Deer won the first-ever over-50 national title. A team called the B.C. Capitals won in 2008, while Yarmouth, N.S. will be returning to defend its title. The nationals will also play some preliminary games out of
Mundy and Blue Mountain parks in Coquitlam and at South Surrey Athletic Park, adjacent to Softball City. Both the cities of Burnaby and New Westminster are fully behind the event, while Tourism Burnaby also chipped in with a cash grant and is helping set up accommodations for the visitors. The group also received a grant from Baseball B.C., which will receive any profits from the championship, said Taylor. Major sponsor Firstar will be outfitting the volunteers and supplying the prizes and awards. Baden Canada will supply the baseballs. So far, 25 teams from B.C., the Prairies, Ontario and the Maritimes have registered to play. The opening ceremonies will be held at Queen’s Park Stadium
on Friday, July 30. A beer garden will also be open on-site. As many as 80 games will be played over the holiday weekend. There will be special events planned, including a salmon barbecue and a welcoming event hosted at the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown hotel. If that wasn’t enough, Taylor is already thinking ahead to hosting an annual oldtimer’s jamboree in the future. “This bodes well for B.C. teams,” Taylor said. “We’re hoping to capitalize on this and do an annual thing. Do something for B.C. teams and maybe some Alberta teams that might want to come.” Further sponsorship and support is welcomed.

May 9 - 15
Aries March 21 - April 19: Continue to chase money.You can start new projects lateTuesday onward, especially in earnings, possessions, rote learning and sensual gratiﬁcation. You’re raring to go Sunday eve into Tuesday – your energy and charisma will surge upward. But this might be slightly too soon, unless you’re charging in to ﬁx a past matter. (Still, take care Sunday – Monday’s far better. A hint: the matter you ﬁx or correct involves your own past actions and/or a romance or creative project.) Communications or short trips succeed very nicely Friday/Saturday! A big chore will complete by late July.
Cancer June 21-July 22: Someone who cares about you will “come through” now (or did last week). Recent delays end Tuesday. Career or business ideas/urges that come to you early week will help solve an ongoing problem, but new ideas might fail – wait for June’s inspiration.Your hopes and popularity soar Wednesday/ Thursday – happiness blesses you! A new friendship or love might begin, but if it starts Wednesday, it has money and status difﬁculties. Retreat, rest and contemplate Friday/Saturday. This summer will bring huge new career/status and domestic events: reading, talking now will “prepare” you.
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Partnership urges ﬁnd fertile ground Sunday to Tuesday – but it’s uncertain whether a relationship formed would last, or fall prey to future indecision. If you take a consequential step Wednesday or before mid-morning Thursday, it could prevent partnership, marriage or a contractual agreement. After this, all’s good. Recent delays end Tuesday, especially in legal, valuation, investment, sexual, commitment, health and lifestyle areas. You might make a decision you’ve been mulling over for a long time. Foreign travel, law, education, publishing, culture arise late week – love, too!
Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Romance, creativity, a general “lucky touch” – these continue all week – and even better, the delays and indecision that have marked this area end now (technically, Tuesday afternoon). A new romance (creative project, etc.) might begin now, perhaps mid-week – one that starts after Thursday morning is better than one that begins earlier. Sunday morning’s happy, but use this eve through Tuesday to rest, gather your energies – and to work on security or domestic problems – Monday might bring a big solution here! Intimacy, commitment, an investment might lure you Friday/Saturday: careful!
Taurus April 20-May 20: Your energy and magnetism remain high and now, at last, you can apply them to forward-going projects. Rest and think Sunday eve through Tuesday. Think especially about property, family and security matters – you might gain an insight Monday (or as you wake Tuesday morn) into solving a problem or friction in these zones. (Solutions will “take effect” in four weeks.) Wednesday onward, contemplate no longer – act! Love, partners, cooperators respond well Wednesday morning. Use the p.m. to prune or “edit” extraneous material. Chase money Friday/Saturday – keep it short term.
Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Recent delays end in career and business areas, although they remain in legal, international and intellectual zones. (Sunday-Tuesday shows this.) The courage, the impulsiveness, and the anger – and the sensual magnetism – you’ve possessed since last autumn will dissipate soon (early June) so if you’re going to make war or love, better hurry! By June, you’ll morph into a mere reasonable, money-hungry mortal. Be ambitious Wednesday/ Thursday – in an odd way, ambition is your salvation now. Happiness comes Friday/Saturday – ﬂirtations, friends arrive. Hopes are prescient.
Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Tackle old chores Sunday eve to Tuesday. This is your opportunity to really clean up an ongoing mess in your life, especially Monday. Relationships remain your primary concern all week – delays and indecision end here now. However, if you charge into a new bond (or sign a contract, etc.) before Thursday noon, it could interfere with your work or health. Act after this. Mysteries, secrets, research, the occult, deep attractions, intimacy, heavy ﬁnances, debts and investments arise Friday/Saturday. All’s smooth here, but the long-range future could hold a disappointment: be slow to commit!
Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Early this week, a talk or e-mail can solve a long-standing “war” with another – Monday especially, all day! If there is no enemy, or no competitive struggle, then there might be a long-standing attraction. Again, Monday’s communication beneﬁts this! Recent delays end Tuesday, especially in home, security, realty and similar zones. (But be patient: act after Thursday morning, not before.) Rest, recuperate, Wednesday/ Thursday. Your mood lifts mildly Friday/Saturday as you begin to notice beauty, begin to sense romance. But be a bit skeptical of romance, until late July.
Gemini May 21-June 20: You can see how the future intertwines with your past, Sunday to Tuesday. Many Geminis are virtual hermits now, after more than a decade of relationship struggles. You might as well remain one, for 2010 favours career and business advancement, and your best relationships will be with bosses, VIPs, kids and parents. You’ll get a wee shot of ﬂirty happiness June to September, then the oyster of love clams up on you again. In 2011, January to June, your popularity and optimism will soar, and light romance will please! For now, remain hopeful yet skeptical. You’ll succeed late week!
Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Delays end Tuesday, especially in intellectual, educational, publishing, legal, cultural, travel and love zones. A sexual attraction (which might arise early week) is a thing of your past, not your future. The same might be said of an investment or large ﬁnancial action. Either act decisively Monday, or let it go. Those intellectual, educational (et al) things arise very successfully Wednesday/Thursday, as long as you aren’t sporting an Achilles heel – e.g., have something to hide, or are carrying around a crime like a leather bag of rocks. Be ambitious Friday/Saturday.
Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Romantic, speculative (gambling) and creative urges arrive Sunday eve through Tuesday – enjoy the beauty, and Monday’s sweet success! Tackle chores all week, especially Wednesday/Thursday. Soon (late next week) you’ll enter an opportunity-laden time – you’ll need to be “light” then, not weighed down by unﬁnished business, tasks, etc. Relationships ﬂow smoothly enough Friday/Saturday, but it’s not a good time (actually, not good right to late July) to commit to a long-term bond, marry, form a partnership, etc. It’s a ﬁne time to make a work-money agreement, though.
Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: You can take a bold, successful money-work step – or solve an important money-work problem – early week (especially Monday). It somehow involves the last six or seven months. Delays and indecision end in communications and travel matters mid-week. A new travel, paperwork, mail or e-mail project could begin now – Thursday’s best (after 9 a.m. PDT, after noon EDT). Settle into home, family, a restful stance Friday/Saturday – all’s ﬁne, it’s a good time for gardening, etc. But don’t take on or start big things (renovations, buying a home, etc.) before late July – disappointment lurks in these. email@example.com • Reading: 416-686-5014
