Ministry keeps eye on oil leak Environment Minister doesn’t want taxpayers to have to pick up tab for cleanup Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The Environment Ministry is keeping an eye on the Chevron refinery oil leak in north Burnaby, but it’s going to take a while to stop the leeching material. “Our position is it should be polluters who pay for the cost of cleanup instead of taxpayers, so we’ll be working with Chevron to make sure we do what is required,” said Environment Minister Barry Penner. A mix of gas, diesel and crude oil has been running off Chevron’s Burnaby site at least since April. Groundwater is carrying the material offsite, and it has showed up in a ditch downhill from the refinery and on a beach in the Burrard Inlet. Chevron is using underground wells to collect the groundwater before it migrates offsite, and crews are continuing to spot clean Barry Penner the beach. Environment John Werring, Minister a biologist with the David Suzuki Foundation, said Chevron has known for at least a decade that the site is contaminated and that contaminated material is migrating offsite. “What is clear is that the site is leaking, and leaking badly, and will continue to do so unless drastic measures are taken to capture and treat all of the groundwater migrating offsite,” Werring wrote in an e-mail to the NOW. Penner said the Environment Ministry has received a new report from Chevron on their plans to deal with the current leak, but it’s going to take a while. Penner said there are probably thousands of old industrial sites in B.C. that would qualify as contaminated. “It happens unfortunately. Leak Page 4

Lack of funds forces foundation to shut down brain scanner for six months disrupting research Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The Burnaby-based Down Syndrome Research Foundation is shutting down its state-of-the-art brain scanner for six months due to lack of funding. “We can’t afford to keep it running,” said Dawn McKenna, the foundation’s executive director. The magnetoencephalography (MEG) scanner measures the magnetic fields that occur in the brain when neurons fire with millisecond accuracy. Numerous researchers from across the country and even the U.S. have used the scanner in Burnaby, which is the only one of its kind this side of Toronto. “We’re the only organization of our kind in the world, that has our breadth and our scope, that is not housed in a university or hospital setting,” said McKenna. “We are totally independent.”

Ruling: Good or bad for women? continued from page 1

charged. “If I’m a sex worker, and I’m supporting my elderly mother, my elderly mother can be charged with living off the avails of prostitution,” Shearman said. “So it puts their families at risk.” The bawdy house law is used to prohibit brothels, but Shearman said that any group of three sex workers that goes to the same place repeatedly for the purposes of prostitution can get charged under the bawdy house law, and, if that place is their home, they could lose their housing. Laura Holland works with the Aboriginal Women’s Action Network, a Vancouver-based nonprofit organization that

offers emotional support to aboriginal women who have survived prostitution. Holland disagreed with Shearman and Justice Himel’s decision “We think striking down the laws will really only benefit pimps and johns and traffickers,” Holland said. “The ruling leaves an impression that prostitution is OK as a profession to enter into, and the women we’re most concerned about, aboriginal women, are the most marginalized.” Holland said aboriginal women are “absolutely overrepresented” in street prostitution, and the women who come to the group for help often struggle with addiction or have mental illnesses.

Holland said women spent days crying when they heard the news that the laws were struck down. “Our first thoughts were, ‘How could they do this to us? How could they throw us to the wolves,’” she said. “One of the things that has really sickened us is the pro decriminalization advocates have used the suffering of our sisters in the Downtown Eastside as a tactic to fight for decriminalization. Quite often we say the suffering of our sisters has been appropriated by the pro-decriminalization camp.” Holland said prostitution for aboriginal women is a consequence of reserve systems, residential schools, foster homes, racism and sexism.

Leak: City, province keeping tabs continued from page 3

Standards and practices have changed over the years. Things that may have been commonplace decades ago are no longer tolerated. The good news is we have a solvent company as owner of the land,” he said, referring to Chevron. The problem with many contaminated sites is that the owner, who is legally responsible for cleaning up the mess, can go bankrupt, so there is no one to pay for cleaning up the mess. Another problem is that new businesses that buy

contaminated land can get stuck with the cleanup costs, Penner explained. So there are also people who want the government to ease up on rules to remediate contaminated sites. “We’re always looking at how we can improve our contaminated sites regulatory framework,” he said. Dipak Dattani is the City of Burnaby’s assistant director of engineering and environmental protection. “The city is looking into this, making sure that the cleanup is done, (but) the lead is the Ministry of

Environment,” he said. The city is getting copies of regular reports on the work being carried on at the site, Dattani said, adding city staff are also visiting the site. “We would like to, as much as anyone else, see it resolved sooner. However, we do feel it will take some time,” Dattani said. “We’re pressuring and making sure Chevron is identifying the sources as soon as possible. ... It is our interest, as a city, to find out why a singular source has not been found.”

Scanner: Not enough funding continued from page 3

delivery for the foundation, and when that supply runs out, the scanner will be shut down. Getting the MEG lab set up cost $3 million, while the scanner itself was $2.2 million. Doctors and researchers pay to use it, researchers pay with grant money they get from the federal government. But with less funds available for grants, there just isn’t enough money around to keep the scanner going. McKenna said federal funding is tight with the three main government agencies that give grant money to researchers. “The

government of Canada has not put a lot of funding recently into those organizations, and competition gets tougher every year,” she said. “We can’t give it away for free. We’re a charity.” It’s not the first time they’ve had to shut down the scanner either. Last year, it was also turned off for six months. Ideally, the foundation would like to get stable government funding to keep the scanner running all year-round have it used as a diagnostic tool. “We’re not talking a huge amount of money. (It’s) a pretty lean lab,” McKenna said.

One might imagine that Health Canada would have wanted to ramp up a variety of education, warning and smoking cessation programs to achieve its stated target – and in doing so, save this country billions in health-care costs. But after more than six years of “consultations” in a variety of forms, the federal government has quietly halted its plans to update the warnings on cigarette packets and include the number of a toll-free line to help smokers quit.

Instead the federal government will focus its efforts on contraband cigarettes – a move that will clearly benefit the tobacco companies as much as it might reduce the supply of some smokers. Surely protecting the health of Canadians ought to be more important than stopping the flow of illegal smuggling. There’s something sadly askew with the government’s priorities on this one. And, unfortunately, it’s Canadians who will pay the price.

Without them, we would not have had a North Burnaby traffic consultation meeting on Sept. 28. For that we owe them our sincere gratitude. Unfortunately, in my opinion, the process that unfolded Tuesday was fundamentally flawed. The “consultation” was the equivalent of dumping a toolbox on the table and asking residents which tool they thought would work. How are we to know which tools will be most effective if they are not part of a larger traffic calming plan?

The potential result is a piecemeal approach that will ultimately pit neighbours against each other. What we need is a comprehensive approach with a stated end goal. That requires a facilitated dialogue. Residents and staff need to sit down and hash out all the options together and decide as a group what people can live with to benefit the entire community. It took 10 years of hard work to get us to this point, and if we fail now, we’re staring at another 10 years of hard time with rat runners on our residential streets. The opportunity here is to develop a template that can be applied in other Burnaby neighbourhoods. That’s what we need to tell our elected officials at Monday’s council meeting.

HST is good for B.C. jobs Dear Editor:

This letter is in response to recent letters to the editor critical of the HST. While we understand the frustration of many British Columbians regarding the way the HST was implemented, it’s worth taking the long view of how the tax will benefit this and upcoming generations of British Columbians. The HST helps us to pass on a more competitive province to our children and grandchildren by stabilizing the B.C. businesses that keep our families employed. B.C. businesses and jobs are stabilized when tax reform like the HST lowers businesses expenses and improves opportunities for new investment. For example, the cost to transport goods has already decreased because the seven per cent PST portion of the HST on every shipping receipt can now be recovered by businesses. Savings are not limited to a few big businesses; savings will be seen on the purchase of a new stove for a restaurant, a new truck for a construction company and a new treadmill for your local gym. No question about it. The HST is good for business. And that means the HST is good for B.C. jobs. John Winter, chair, Smart Tax Alliance

Be grateful for housing

Dear Editor:

Re: Housing is a critical need, Letters to the editor, Burnaby NOW, Sept. 25. In response to your letter regarding affordable housing in Burnaby, I say this. I myself live in Burnaby because it offers the most amenities and proximity to the city that I can presently afford at my current wage, combined with my wife’s wage. Both of us would dearly love to live in West Vancouver, in particular Caulfeild appeals

to us. Do you know why we don’t live there? You guessed it, we simply cannot afford to, it’s that simple. Now, I could complain to city officials about how terrible it is that houses in West Vancouver are too darn expensive for the average working person to buy. If only West Vancouver would build houses for less than half the average cost, good people like my wife and I could afford to live there, because as hard-working individuals, surely we have a right to live anywhere we want don’t we? Never mind the locals who paid twice what we think we should pay, or the economics of why the price is what it is in West Vancouver. These points are meaningless in the face of my overwhelming need to live in West Vancouver and the city’s responsibility to make this happen. I guess I’m a bit of a simpleton, Mr. Chouhan, but in my book, you choose the best place you can reasonably afford to live, given your income, and be grateful for what you have. I thank God that we have compassionate people who care enough to build low-income housing, but this is a compassionate gift, not an entitlement. When viewed through this lens, we can be grateful for such a wonderful gift, rather than resentful for it not being enough. Michael Yates, Burnaby

Scrap steel cable, anyone?

Dear Editor:

I always marvel at the ingenuity of our elected leaders. Take the proposed Burnaby Mountain (SFU) sky ride and do some simple math: The distance from the Lougheed SkyTrain station to SFU is over twice the distance as the sky ride going up Grouse Mountain. I suspect that during peak morning rush, the proposed gondola will have to move twice as many bodies as the sky ride does during the peak rush up Grouse Mountain. Oh – and Grouse Mountain has two sky rides. So do some simple math: 2 x 2 x 2 = 8. So each car will have to be some combination of up to eight times faster and up to eight times bigger. We should call this the “Flying Fast Ferry.” I wonder what the scrap value of six kilometres of hardened steel cable is?

hired, sets need to be built. This takes place over several months before filming starts. Filming started this year at about the same time that the HST was imposed upon us unwilling tax payers, but that is pure coincidence. The film productions

that are currently filming started many months before that. Two years ago, I put down a deposit of $30,000 on a new condo. Because I didn’t complete before July 1, I had to come up with $51,000 for HST. The bank will not include this in a mortgage. Because I could not come

up with the HST, I was unable to complete and I lost my $30,000. $120,000 + 30,000 = $150,000 + a new condo. Premier Campbell needs to be removed. And so does the HST (not replaced with some other tax). Lee A. Wood is a Burnaby resident.

The Burnaby RCMP is looking for help to solve a case where a Burnaby senior was defrauded out of $340 and a credit card. The theft occurred on Sept. 7 when a man, who the RCMP identified through surveillance video as Richard Rupert, approached the elderly Burnaby woman by posing as a family member. The senior invited the man into her home and once inside, the man distracted her and stole a credit card and $340 in cash. Rupert is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for a number of frauds and robberies targeting senior citizens.

Rupert, also being sought by the Toronto Police Service, is described as a 54-year-old Caucasian, 5-5 to 5-6 tall, between 140 and 160 pounds, with dirty blonde or grey hair and a receding hair line. “Mr. Rupert’s MO (modus operandi) remains the same,” said Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Brenda Gresiuk in a prepared release. “He befriends senior citizens, convinces them he’s a nephew, a distant relative, or in some cases, a member of building management. He then asks for money, usually for car repairs. Rupert convinces the victim to attend a bank with him where they withdraw a large amount of money.”

Govt. restores funding to parent advisory councils in Burnaby 50 schools in the city will split $480,000 this year Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The provincial government is doubling funding for parent advisory councils across B.C. In Burnaby, that means parent groups for 50 schools, both public and private, will split $480,000 for this school year. “Obviously we’re happy, but the real amount is a return to what it was prior to last year,” said David Dye, vice-chair of the district parent advisory council. “We only got back

what we lost, so this is only a return to normal.” In September 2009, Education Minister Margaret MacDiarmid announced funding for parent advisory councils would be cut in half to help deal with the province’s deficit, so this year’s increase brings funding back to previous levels. The money comes from the provincial government’s gambling profits. The district wide parents’ group gets $2,500 a year, while school-based groups get $20 per student. Burnaby North Secondary, with about 2,300 students, is getting the biggest chunk: $46,920, while Glenwood Elementary, with just over

100 students, is getting $2,080. Local Liberal MLA Richard Lee lauded the announcement. “The positive legacies of parent involvement in Burnaby schools is extraordinary,” he said in a media release. “Whether it be playground equipment, extracurricular activities, or general school spirit, the volunteer efforts and positive contributions of parents have made a real difference in the lives of all Burnaby students.” Parent groups use the money to help pay for many things; school clubs, competitions, field trips, sports equipment and playground upgrades, for example.

Public hearing scheduled for Big Bend project Burnaby could add to its commercial, industrial space with a new development in the Big Bend area. A public hearing on the multi-tenant development plan is scheduled for Oct. 26. The two-storey industrial development would be located on a site just over 100,000 square feet, but would only cover about half of that space, according to a report on the project from the city’s engineering department to city council. The design includes 21,601 sq. ft.

of manufacturing space, 30,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space, and 4,676 sq. ft. for office space. The plan includes 48 parking spaces, 12 loading bay spaces and five spaces for bikes. The site is at 7575 North Fraser Way, between Tillicum Street and Byrne Road, amidst other industrial buildings near Burnaby Fraser Foreshore Park. The city’s environmental services division is asking the developer, Sanford Design Group, to submit a

detailed plan on how sediment control will be provided during construction. A site profile, a geotechnical review of soil stability and a section 219 covenant in regards to flood proofing are also required. A public hearing on rezoning the site for the development is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Oct. 26 in the council chamber at city hall, 4949 Canada Way.

Gateway access gets green light from city Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

After years of working on an access agreement for the Gateway Project, Burnaby city councillors have voted to adopt the Burnaby Access memorandum. The agreement includes a number of minor land exchanges and transfers, as well as specifications for the portion of the Port Mann/ Highway 1 project that runs through Burnaby. The memorandum also mentions council’s opposition to the Gateway Project. “Council has previously stated its opposition to the project, citing a broad range of concerns relating to the consideration of viable project alternatives, induced traffic and urban sprawl,” the memorandum states. Mayor Derek Corrigan could not be reached for comment on the issue. “We are pleased to be able to move forward and sign the agreement,” said Pam Ryan, spokesperson for the project. Theagreementisbetween the City of Burnaby, the provincial Transportation Investment Corporation and the B.C. Transportation Financing Authority. Construction in Burnaby to date has been on provincial land, Ryan said, adding the portion of Burnaby land needed for the project is very small, mostly at overpasses and interchanges. The memorandum sets the following terms for the agreement: ◆ The province has requested ownership of 0.83 hectares of titled land from 13 lots to accommodate the widening of the highway. ◆The province also asked to resume control of 0.25 hectares of road right-of-way, which currently belongs to the city. ◆The province also requested 3.76 hectares for statutory rights-of-way on park lands in the Still Creek conservation area, Burnaby Lake Regional Park, Robert Burnaby Park and the Brunette River conservation area for habitat compensa-

tion sites. ◆The province asked for change of use of 0.29 hectares of city land, to be used for road, pedestrian and cycling infrastructure. In exchange, the province has offered 3.62 hectares of titled provincial land, primarily close to the highway, which the city requested for parks and open spaces. The province has also offered 0.33 hectares of road rightof-way on Cariboo Road. As part of the negotiations, the province will give Burnaby $400,000 for transportation infrastructure for any integration issues that might arise, as well as $50,000 to relocate a heritage granite wall and gate on the Mathers House property at 6490 Deer Lake Ave. The move is necessary to accommodate expansion of the Canada Way and Kensington Avenue intersection. The province is also giving Burnaby $30,000 for water table monitoring in the Burnaby Lake area, to keep an eye on changes related to the highway expansion. Project integration features are also included in the agreement, such as replacement of city infrastructure

affected by the project; fish and wildlife upgrades; noise reduction in residential areas; changes to roads to address safety and circulation issues; pedestrian and cycling infrastructure; and landscaping. Construction on Highway 1 will continue on provincial land as the province works with city staff on the agreement. “We’re working with staff to implement the agreement in a timely manner,” Ryan said. Currently, the majority of construction is on the Grandview Highway overpass, and the Kensington Avenue and Sprott Street overpasses, but is also taking place along the entire highway corridor, Ryan said. The project is on schedule, she said, and is slated to be completed in 2013. After the twinning of the Port Mann Bridge is complete, the old bridge is scheduled to come down by the end of 2014.

Help Jodie’s team

he Burnaby school district is raising money for a cure for cancer – this time, it’s for one of their own staff. Jodie Wilson handles communications and community relations for the school district. She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and on Aug. 30 started 16 weeks of chemotherapy, to be followed by surgery and radiation. District staff have put together a team called “Jodie’s Journey” to participate in the Run for a Cure on Oct. 3. In a message sent out through the district, Jodie described her experience. “This summer, I received the shocking diagnosis of breast cancer. There is no family history of breast cancer, and my mammogram last fall was clear,” she wrote. “When my workplace asked what they could do to support me, I asked them to put a team together for the CIBC Run for a Cure. And so the team ‘Jodie’s Journey’ was formed. On Sunday, Oct. 3, I plan to participate in the Run for a Cure with my work colleagues and my daughter Kira. I would be ever so grateful if you would consider a donation to either Kira or myself – to help us create a future free of breast cancer. Thank you in advance for your support.” To read more of her story, visit www.runforthecure. com/goto/jodie. Her goal is to raise $3,500 and she’s already at $3,275. Jodie has worked closely with the NOW over the past four years as the go-to woman for education stories. We are wishing her a speedy recovery.

Making room for the kids Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The Burnaby Christmas Bureau has found a place to stash its toys for the holiday season. The bureau, which distributed toys and food certificates to local low-income families, was searching for a place to set up their toy room in time for Christmas when Metropolis at Metrotown stepped forward. The mall is donating a storefront, right next to Toys “R” Us.

“This is an incredible opportunity,” said Stephen D’Souza, executive director of Burnaby Community Connections, the non-profit group that runs the bureau. “We were searching for the right location – somewhere that would be welcoming and accessible for our clients, donors and volunteers, Metropolis at Metrotown is the perfect fit.” The toy room opens Nov. 1, but it’s only a temporary solution for this year. What the organization is really looking for is a permanent space where they can house the toy

room and have an office in the same location – something like a storefront that’s easily accessible from public transit. Metropolis is a longtime supporter of the bureau, mainly by donating proceeds from photos with Santa in the mall at Christmas time. At the toy room, people can donate by leaving toys, and registered families can pick out presents for their kids. For more on the bureau, see www.burn

Addicted? Check out this series in the city Sessions include: Pleasure to Problems and Family Dynamics Janaya Fuller-Evans

staff reporter

It is never easy to live with an addiction, or love and support someone who does. But Burnaby Addictions Services hosts a public education series that can help those with substance abuse problems, and their friends and family better understand the issues involved. “For many individuals and families who experience substance abuse difficulties, education and awareness is often the first step to seeking further help,” Steve Giannopoulos, addiction services coordinator, wrote in an e-mail.

The education has been offered for many years, providing Burnaby residents with information around the issues related to the misuse of alcohol and other drugs, he added. Burnaby Addictions Services has provided substance misuse outpatient counseling to youth who are more than 12 years of age and adults (including those 65 or older) for more than 25 years. The education series is open to the public as well as clients, and is free of charge. An addiction services counsellor, Talino Bruno, leads the five two-hour sessions. Pleasure to Problems, on Oct. 6, looks at how substance abuse develops and the consequences associated with each stage of use. Chemicals and the Body, on Oct. 13, deals with the different classifications of

drugs and how each affects the body on a short and long-term basis. The Process of Change, on Oct. 20, looks at understanding the different stages and supporting someone through the process of change. Family Dynamics, on Oct. 27, shows the effect substance misuse has on family members, and family circumstances and cycles that foster addiction. Helping Others, on Nov. 3, helps attendees with communication strategies, boundary setting, and making a plan when dealing with someone’s substance abuse problem. Sessions run on Wednesday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m., at the multi-purpose room for Burnaby Addictions at Burnaby Hospital, 3935 Kincaid St. For more information, call Burnaby Addictions Services at 604-453-1910.

K’Naan show cancelled Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

SFU student Kayode Fatoba is trying to get a deposit back from hip hop artist K’Naan, who pulled out of a benefit show for World Peace Day on Sept. 21 after negotiations broke down shortly before the concert. Hundreds of people were at SFU, waiting for the Somali-Canadian musician, best known for his Waving Flag anthem from the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Partial proceeds from the show were supposed to go to an organization that helps girls in Ghana get an education. Fatoba, 19, is a health sciences student and president of I Vision One World, the group that arranged the concert. But the show’s organizers stepped on stage, announcing K’Naan was not coming to a visibly upset crowd. They said that K’Naan’s management pulled the plug because

they were $5,000 short, but they offered to refund tickets holders. Criticism erupted online following the show, and K’Naan responded on his Twitter feed. “The story here is that I refused to play a charity event because they were $5,000 short. Tho this is not true it is within my right to do so,” he wrote. Paquin Entertainment released a statement on K’Naan’s behalf saying the promoter “broke key contractual obligations” and were in excess of 50 per cent short of the financial agreement. “As a result, K’Naan’s management (was) forced to pull his performance from this event,” the statement read. “K’Naan had nothing to do with this decision and was not onsite at the event when the decision was made.” Fatoba has publicly taken the blame for the mix up, saying it was the concert organizers fault since

they didn’t raise enough cash. According to Fatoba, K’Naan’s asking price was $40,000. While some money was paid in advance, low ticket sales left organizers short and scrambling at the last minute. “We thought we could renegotiate because we didn’t end up having enough money,” Fatoba said Thursday. So far, Fatoba estimates he’s refunded more than 50 tickets but can’t do any more than that because they’ve run out of money. “We’re trying to contact K’Naan’s people to try and get some of the deposit,” Fatoba said, declining to say how much had been paid. And giving refunds has been tough for Fatoba, since every $30 ticket refunded means less money for charity. “The money we’ve been giving people was money that was supposed to be donated,” he said, adding they managed to give the organization $1,000.

Community conversations Jennifer Moreau’s Blog Let’s talk. From the personal to political. Life in Burnaby

(And That Your Accountant and Financial Planner Cannot Tell You)! )

Darren Weeks, Canadian “Multi-Millionaire” (from Edmonton), is revealing the proven investment strategies he learned personally from Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad), and has perfected for our unique Canadian situation. Darren is offering an absolutely FREE event in Burnaby on Wednesday, Oct. 6th to show how you too can become financially independent and be able to do whatever you 5 years or less! (No matter what is happening in the economy). He’s also giving away an Amazing FREE gift to every attendee who brings a guest. His NEW audio CD “The 7 Keys to Creating What your banker hopes you neverr learn. Wealth in Canada” – a $39.95 value – FREE of charge just for bringing a friend (your guest gets one too)! The banks and mutual fund companies want to keep you y in the dark. I know that those are strong words, and I wouldn’t be so bold in saying them if I couldn’t back it up. The truth of the matter is that I’m really ANGRY and I will NOT keep quiet any longer. My name is Darren Weeks and I want to show you a whole NEW world when it comes to getting ahead financially in Canada. This is the truth about investing that many in the ‘establishment’ really don’t want you to know. Forget what you learned (or didn’t learn) about money and investing in school or from your parents. What worked for their generation no longer works in today’s economy. And take everything you have heard about creating wealth from your banker and financial planner and flush it right down the toilet, because that is where it belongs. The next time your banker or mutual fund sales person (oh, sorry, I meant ‘financial planner’) suggests investing in some ‘wonderful’ mutual fund or stock – ask to see their audited financial statement. Chances are, they have a lot less money than you think (and quite probably a lot less than you have). Why continue to take financial advice from broke salespeople? It doesn’t make any sense.


Here’s What Not to Do: If you follow the establishment’s rules, you will… ! Pay the highest MER’s in the world. ! Create a house of cards based portfolio, largely reliant on the U.S. dollar. ! Listen to advisors whose advice is proven to be about as accurate as a monkey throwing darts at stock picks on the wall... ! Continue to walk ‘blind’ with Banks, Mutual Fund Co’s, and even the Canadian Government wanting to keep you in the dark ! Think you are happy with returns that don’t even keep up with the real inflation rate (and the ‘official’ inflation calculations are an absolute crock.) Here are the Benefits off DOING IT RIGHT: But... When you learn the New Rules of Investing, you will...

Good question – you should only take advice from people who are successful, and hopefully more successful than you are.

" See how easy it can be to take control of your own investing without having to pay huge M.E.R’s (management expense ratios)

My name is Darren Weeks, and I am proud to say that many of my students across the country call me the “Canadian Rich Dad”.

" Understand the pro’s and con’s of investing in gold and silver.

It also has to do with the fact that I have a very close association with Robert Kiyosaki, author of “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” and that I have been sharing my “Canadianized” version of his teachings with hundreds of thousands of Canadians since 2001. I am very pleased that I have been able to show Canadians across the country how to take control of their own finances, and to live life on their own terms. I have spurred dozens of people (if not hundreds now) to become millionaires, or multi-millionaires in 5 years or less. Now I do not take the credit for their success – they took the action and actually did something – and I am just happy that I was able to inspire them in some way. My companies, The Fast Track Group, were honored to be included in the 2010 Profit Magazine list of the fastest growing companies in Canada.

Now let’s get back to the point at hand – how YOU can get superior Return On Investment (ROI) on your hard-earned investment dollars.

" Discover that high returns = high risk is not always accurate.

Here are Some Credentials…

to teach you about – it’s not theory – it really works. I’m living proof of it. So are my students.

But Why Should You Listen To Me?

Why? Because the monthly Passive Income (i.e. money I don’t have to work for) from my Investments and Businesses is more than what most Canadians work hard for all year long.

One of my companies is also the official sponsor of the Canadian Luge team, and we attracted quite a bit of notoriety in the press during the recent Vancouver Olympics when it was leaked that I offered anyone on the team a $1,000,000 reward if they won a Gold medal (and my offer still stands for the 2014 games in Russia)! I don’t say this to brag, I just tell you this to credentialize myself a bit, and to give you confidence that I am not some fly-by-night quack out trying to peddle you some modern-day financial ‘snake-oil’. I actually do what I am going

try and sell you some super expensive investment or real estate course/training). I don’t blame you for being suspicious...there are a lot of seminar companies out there that do just that. I assure you, I do not. We do have a selection of quality books and resources available if you are interested. But that is not the goal of me putting on this event. My goal is to give you some phenomenal education and information and to hopefully help you to have a complete mind-shift when it comes to money and creating wealth in Canada. One of the biggest lessons I ever learned from my good friend and mentor, Robert Kiyosaki, is this: Give first without expectation of gain, and you will gain a lot in the long run. So, if you like what I say, you may decide you want to do business with my company in the future. Fair enough?

" See how Robert Kiyosaki analyzes deals and how you can do the same, easily.

See you at the top! Darren Weeks.

So keep your cheque-book at home, come with an open mind to learn – there is nothing more expensive than a book at this event. How About if I Give You Even More? If I’m going to give away the farm, I might as well go even one step further…so, just for bringing your spouse or a like-minded guest to this FREE event, I want to give you another FREE gift…My “7 Keys to Creating Wealth in Canada” audio

Canadian “Multi-Millionaire” Shares his Strategies on...

How to Get Rich in Canada! (In the New Canadian Economy)

And do You Think We Are Over TAXED in Canada? You bet we are! GST, PST, HST, Income tax, municipal tax, gas tax, property transfer tax, hotel tax, income tax, and it goes on and on and on. The average Canadian works over 6 months a year just to pay taxes! No wonder it is so darn hard to get ahead (and then to get a lousy or negative return on our hard-earned investment dollars to top it off – come on!) But do you think ultra-rich Canadians pay that much in taxes? Of course not. They know the legal loop-holes to minimize their tax burden or even eliminate it altogether. As a part of this presentation, I will share with you y the tax shrinkingg strategies g of the wealthyy ((even used byy one previous p Prime Minister).) So you can either complain, gripe and gnash your teeth about how unfair it all is, or you can learn the Rules of the Canadian Rich. The Golden Rule when it comes to money is “He (or She) Who Has the Gold...Makes the Rules”. I’m going to level the playing field with what I teach you at this event, so you can play the game of money just like the rich folks do. And Why is This Event FREE? Now if you have ever been to another ‘Free’ financial education seminar before, you are probably worried that I am going to get you all fired up and excited, and then pull the old ‘baitand-switch’ on you about half way through, (and

Dementia poses challenges for caregivers I

n a previous column, I introduced you to the emotional and moral minefield faced by the families of individuals with dementia. Increasingly, adults in their 30s and 40s are finding themselves in the sandwich generation, raising their growing children while looking after the increasing needs of their aging parents. It can be a stressful role, especially if a parent is suffering from dementia. Every week, at least one older patient will tell me, “Don’t ever grow old.” I always respond, “It seems better than the alternative,” but I know what they mean. Every day can be a challenge when your body can no longer do what it used to, you have to take six different medications, including sleeping pills because, though you’re tired all the time, sleep is lighter and non-restorative.

hesitate to see your family physician. A simple test for dementia is the Mini Mental Status Exam. Most cases of dementia respond to medications if started early on in their course. Other treatable causes of memory loss include hypothyroidism and depression. The decline in cognitive function with age can be delayed or even reversed with stimulating activity, including the challenge of learning new information or cognitive exercise. I often prescribe the Nintendo DS game Brain Age to my older patients. When we are no longer able to understand our circumstances, our medical choices and the implications of those choices, we are deemed incapable of our own medical decisionmaking. In the absence of an advanced directive, your doctors will turn to your spouse or family to make choices on your behalf. In our consultations at Burnaby Hospital, the ethical resources committee would guide family members in considering the medical choices (e.g. to start or not start tube feeding; to continue or withdraw life support; to decline or submit to surgery) within the

context of their loved one’s whole life – the individual’s personal values and where the greatest meaning in life was found. When caring for a dependent loved one with dementia, emotional and moral stress can be overwhelming. Family members may find themselves feeling resentful, impatient and angry. This is often associated with a sense of guilt for having these normal feelings. When our aging loved ones are angry, upset and not themselves, we have to remember the whole person in the context of a complete life. We have to see the person we have always loved deep inside the person in front of us. It is like loving your angry teen unconditionally, seeing within them the infant and toddler whom you loved and still love so dearly. As caregivers, we have to embrace the good days and appreciate the time distortions of dementia. They live in a different present – which may be the seemingly real present of childhood – of happier days. We do not have to draw them into our present if they are happiest where they are.

Self-care of the family caregiver is essential. Each must have their own support system, others who are willing to listen. There is the option of respite, wherein the loved one can be admitted to a long-term

care facility for a weekend or a week to give the primary caregiver a break. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician at PrimeCare Medical. His Internet radio show can be heard on www.

Dr. Davidicus Wong

More unfortunate still is the fact that none of us gets a choice over what will go first: the body or the mind. Is it better to have clear awareness of the suffering of our aging bodies, or is it better to imagine ourselves young again with the loved ones of our past, unaware of our complete dependence of others? It is quite normal to have some decline in shortterm memory with age, and this usually presents as benign absentmindedness. When most patients come to the doctor with concerns with their memory, subsequent testing reassures them that the misplacement of their keys at home is not a harbinger for dementia. It’s normal to misplace your keys when you’re not paying attention, but you may have a problem if you find them in the microwave. It’s normal to walk into your bedroom, forgetting what you were looking for, but it’s not if you find yourself in your neighbour’s house. With dementia, it is often family members who first pick up on the memory problems. If you or your loved ones are worried that you may have a problem, don’t

Fibre is key to healthy diet KEEPING FIT


Shaun Karp

t’s normal to be concerned about staying regular. What you might not know is the role fibre plays in regularity and that “regular” can differ widely between healthy adults. A misconception is that constipation is solely defined by frequency. It’s not. It is typically defined by symptoms of pain and bloating, difficulty passing stools and a feeling that you cannot empty your bowel. It can be normal to have anywhere from three to 21 bowel movements a week, according to HealthLink B.C. To manage regularity, dietary fibre is a great place to start. There are two types: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fibre actually slows the speed at which food travels through your intestines. Insoluble fibre does the opposite. Popular fibre supplements – like Metamucil – contain both types. Soluble fibre regulates our blood sugar, while insoluble fibre adds bulk to stool by absorbing large amounts of water. Soluble fibre is capable of absorbing several times its weight in water.

The government of British Columbia recommends that males between the ages of 19 and 50 consume 38 grams of fibre each day. For females of this age, they recommend 26 grams. For males and females 51 and older, 30 and 21 grams are recommended, respectively. Despite our easy access to a variety of foods, most Canadians do not consume as much fibre as they should. Great sources of fibre include fruits, vegetables, lentils, beans and all-bran cereals. Try to snack on nuts, seeds and dried fruit instead of cookies or crackers. Foods made of refined white flour contain little fibre. You can read the nutrition label on prepared foods to see how much fibre they contain. If you plan to increase your intake of dietary fibre, do so gradually. Sudden increases in your dietary fibre intake can irritate your bowels – causing pain, bloating or diarrhea. People who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome are likely more susceptible to these symptoms if they increase their fibre intake. Like anything else that contributes to your health, a diet high in fibre is not a cure-all. A combination of proper diet, exercise and lifestyle will all contribute to keeping you regular. Shaun Karp is a certified personal trainer. For further information call 604-420-7800 or see

Worth every penny:

The 2011 Infiniti QX56 takes the luxury SUV to a whole new level.

Deadline Midnight Oct 4; Draws 3 pm, Oct 29.

Photo contributed/ burnaby now

Infiniti goes beyond David Chao and Bob McHugh NOW contributors

A personal transportation craft of tranquillity and techno-wonders: the redesigned 2011 Infiniti QX56 has a new look, better fuel economy and is packed with leading-edge technologies. Infiniti continues to perfect the ride and comfort of its biggest and boldest go-anywhere SUV while cocooning up to eight passengers aboard a superbly redesigned interior. There’s no increase in price compared to the current QX56. Granted, its $73,000 price tag is a hefty one, but you can pay considerably more for a competitive full-


sized SUV in this premium luxury class, which makes it a financially sounder and reasonable purchase. The 2011 QX is only offered as an Infiniti QX56 4WD and comes in both seven- and eight-passenger versions. My test QX came with the technology package and an all-in (before tax) price of $82,900.

The inside

As is generally the case in three-row seating arrangements, the first two rows get the lion’s share of the space available, and the QX is no different. What is different is access and convenience of the third-row seat usage. The right side second row seat folds, then flips forward, and this can be performed by pressing a switch on the dash. The third row seats can also be remotely powered up and down via switches in the cargo area, and even the rear liftgate is power-operated.

With all these systems, it may sound like the QX is akin to driving the space shuttle, but it’s not. For the most part, the QX is a very easy vehicle to drive, considering its large dimensions. A special mention, on that score, goes to the camera monitoring system in the QX, as it’s easily the best on the market. They are everywhere, front, sides and rear, and you’ve got multiple viewing options, including a simulated overhead view that gives a 360-degree view. On the highway, the QX is a uniquely quiet vehicle. The ride is also impressively smooth.

Included in the technology package is Infiniti’s lane departure warning and lane departure prevention systems, which first warn and then try to redirect the QX if it drifts into another driving lane or gets too close to the side shoulder of a marked road. It’s also packaged with a blind spot warning system. Other new advanced safety systems

available on the QX include advanced intelligent cruise control, distance control assist, intelligent brake assist with forward collision warning, front pre-crash seatbelts and hill start assist.

Take it off for a good cause While people who join Weight Watchers generally do so to lose weight, those unwanted pounds are still very much in demand. Starting on Sunday (Oct. 3) and running until Nov. 30, Weight Watchers members will be turning their lost pounds of fat into donated pounds of food to local food banks as part of the second annual Lose For Good campaign. “The enthusiasm that our group brought to Lose For Good last year was truly inspiring, and actually became a great motivator for our members,” said

Weight Watchers spokesperson Kelda Gavina. “Our meetings are successful because of the support from members of the community, so we are excited to give back.” Last year, Weight Watchers in the Lower Mainland collected more than 6,400 pounds of food, which were donated to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society, and roughly 75,000 pounds across the country. This year’s campaign is of particular importance, as B.C. has seen an estimated 15 per cent increase in food bank use since last year alone.

LUXURY PET HOTEL @ YVR airport because your pet deserves a vacation too! 604-238-Pets (7387)

Aries March 21 - April 19: A powerful week for relationships,marriage,businesspartnerships,dealing with the public, opportunities, possible fame. What transpires now will have “sweet echoes” for three months. Love relationships are helped by October’s high level of sexual desire. Business partnerships might go through a process of re-arrangement, buyout, or balancing of assets/ownership. (All through October, with “lingering trailers” to January 2011.) Be diplomatic, flexible; if you insist on your way, you might turn opportunities into refusals, potential partners into competitors. Romance Sunday! Taurus April 20-May 20: The monthly emphasis lies on employment, chores, machinery, dependents and health. A new job can arise Wednesday onward. An important affectionate relationship might be developing – although you could begin to have a few mild doubts about your commitment to this bond. The same might be said about a contract, negotiation, relocation opportunity, or litigation. This indecision is due to a temporary factor. By late November, December, you’ll return to certainty about bonding with a person, place, agreement, etc., so remain optimistic. Excitement or disagreement grows Friday/Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Romance (with a coworker?) pleasure, beauty are at the top of your wish list. You’re on a winning streak – you can succeed in speculation, gaming, sports and creative ventures. All these, from romance to creativity, are marked by a new sobriety, slowness and carefulness. Good, these will eventually bring depth, strength and durability to any love or venture you undertake. Your health needs attention. Your career ambitions will get an autumn boost (be active but patient: fastest progress comes in December). Rest early week. Wednesday to Saturday brings romantic (et al) excitement!

Cancer June 21-July 22: The accent lies on home, children, security, gardening, nutrition, Mother Nature, foundations and basics. A streak of romance runs through your days (e.g., this Friday/Saturday) – right into next January. If you’re happily married, you’ll bask in love of children, creative joys, nature’s beauty, sports and/or simple pleasures, speculation, gambling, etc. Chase money Sunday. A Monday disagreement might be building with your mate over domestic/property concerns. It’s minor, but points to larger issues. Run errands, chat Tuesday/Wednesday. Friday p.m. starts an intriguing weekend! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: It’s a busy time but not an important time, Leo. Do paperwork, errands, chat, travel, email, schedule (especially Wednesday/ Thursday) but rest on a deeper level. Pause to watch nature, to meditate, contemplate, or simply to drink in family joys. (You’re a sweet’n’sour mixture in domestic arenas – after October, only the sweet will remain.) You shine Sunday, your charisma and energy surge. Chase money carefully Monday to Wednesday. (Your work habits need an overhaul: work smarter, not harder.) Friday afternoon begins a long, deep, renewing weekend – family reunions are blessed! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Money, earnings, buying/selling fill this month. Your days bring interesting errands, casual meetings, paperwork, communications – a casual friendship could develop into a light romance (likely Oct. 8-10). You might sense that under a surface of free and easy flirtation a deeper “turn” is lurking – and it is. (Ditto in all areas – lightness hides depths. E.g., light communications or errands/travel could lead to an investment.) For students and intellectuals, October is a superb month for research and writing. Rest, lie low Sunday. Your energy and charisma rise Monday eve to Wednesday.

ANTIQUE SHOW Sat., Oct. 9th



★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Your charisma, energy, effectiveness and confidence soar, especially Wednesday afternoon to the weekend. Get out, start major projects, tackle difficult situations. See and be seen – be there in person. You’ll impress others. A sensual relationship attracts you all autumn – or you might pursue a luxury purchase. Either way, don’t be discouraged if mild delays occur next week to midto late November: success will still be the outcome. Sunday’s social, happy. But retreat, rest and plan mid-day Monday to mid-day Wednesday. If you have to insist Monday, it signals future incompatibility. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Rest, lie low, replenish energies. Life is sending a mixed message: your sexual/partnership magnetism is high, but the energy you need to act on it is low. Reflect on what you really want in love, so when your energy rises (Oct. 23 onward) you can chase the right person. There’s no rush – your unusual attractiveness will last into early January. Meanwhile, attend to neglected duties, governmental or institutional contacts, and administrative chores. Follow charitable urges. Drink spiritual breaths, envision your future. Tuesday, happiness! Saturday highlights that magnetism! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Wishes come true, but in a quiet, sober way. Optimism, light romance, popularity, entertainment and social joys fill this month. Many of your deepest desires stay hidden, which can lead to a clandestine attraction, or might simply leave you quiet and contemplative despite your happiness. Realize that now to late 2012, your real wish is for money. Start thinking of ways to make this one come true. Your real estate luck returns, now to late January. Sunday’s mellow, loving. Monday brings a disagreement about money and the future. Midweek offers joy, friends. Rest, Friday eve, Saturday.

Oct. 3 - Oct. 9 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The accent lies on ambition, career, prestige relationships, your status in the community.You’ll meet with bigwigs or authorities, or feel their influence, especially Wednesday to Friday. If meeting, put on your charm – your social skills are tops now into next January. You might meet a “just right” romantic prospect in a group – if Monday to Wednesday, he/she will be obviously drawn to you. If late month – Oct. 22 to 24 — you will be the pursuer. Life’s depths, sex, finances, major commitments intrigue you Sunday. Wisdom Monday/Tuesday. Happiness Friday eve, Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: For you, October is always loving, gentle, wise and compassionate. But this October your sweet mood can be slightly sullied by either 1) a temptation to use romance as a rung on the ladder of ambition, or 2) frustration that true love is unavailable. Realize that temptation and denial/ frustration are two manifestations of the same thing. (True love is never denied, but blocked by temptation.) Or, you might find true love now, especially Sunday (opposites attract) Monday-Wednesday (lust) Wednesday-Friday (gentle mind-meld) or Friday/ Saturday (nervous romance). An interesting week! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: You swim in life’s depths now: subconscious urges rise, your dreams intrigue, hunches prove accurate – rely on them when making consequential decisions. Commitments are serious, in finances, intimacy, lifestyle areas. What you do now can change your life. That applies particularly to love of a marriage/wedding kind, and to legal affairs touching on earnings and/or possessions (Friday/Saturday). A few months ago you had powerful ambitions, optimism about your prospects – grab those again, because you’re on a lucky four-month roll in career, worldly ambitions. Opportunities Tuesday! • Reading: 416-686-5014
