Volunteer: ‘You’ll never regret it’ A

ward-winning author Lawrence Hill visited Moscrop Secondary to talk to students about black history, his acclaimed novel The Book of Negroes and his experiences travelling and volunteering in West Africa. Hill encouraged the group of roughly 100 senior students to volunteer overseas. “You’ll never regret it,” he said. Hill, now 53, first went to volunteer in Niger in 1979, when he was just 21. In West Africa, women often carry the ON MY BEAT culture and economy, he said. Jennifer Moreau “If you can protect women and girls, you’re protecting everybody else in these cultures,” he said.

LAWRENCE HILL: IN HIS OWN WORDS On volunteering in West Africa

It was a life-changing experience. It opened my eyes up to life in rural West Africa. It changed me forever in terms of my development as a writer and my own sense of calm in terms of my self-perception, racially.

On Aminata Diallo, the book’s protagonist I could never have written a novel without having lived in the kind of village she grew up in – a polygamist, rural, Muslim village in the middle of nowhere in Mali – very traditional. To have lived in villages like that, to have seen women pounding millet into flour with their pestles influenced me. It helped me visualize the story that became The Book of Negroes. I would never have written a novel without having worked as a volunteer in villages much like the one in which Aminata was born.

It was very hard. It’s hard to plunge into tragedy and to write your way out of it. It’s a story that is supposed to have some sort of light and some sort of hope, and there are very painful incidents. I didn’t want to diminish them by trivializing the pain a person might have experienced during the time of the trans-Atlantic slave trade. It was very hard to keep that hard edge to her life and be unflinching about it.

On making sense of the horrors of the slave trade

I don’t know how to make sense of it. I don’t know that we can make sense of it. It’s a monstrous human depravity at its worst, right up there with the Holocaust and the war in the former Yugoslavia and the Siege of Sarajevo. The things we do to each other are just despicable. But somehow we survive and we go on. And the survivors of these monstrous injustices don’t let these episodes kill them. If they survive, they keep going, and they keep loving and having children, and they live well. To me, that’s sort of the magic of human resilience.

On the connection between the historic slave trade and now.

Slavery is unfortunately an ongoing challenge. Current experts in contemporary slavery estimate as many as 30 million people, mostly women and children, are kept in conditions that can only be described as slavery now. We’re not talking about the trans-Atlantic slave trade. … Millions of people, including in Canada and the States, are kept in slavery now – in modern, 21st century forms of it. There’s a direct connection of human injustice. I guess we’ll always be facing it. We always have to try and face it down and try to stop it.

On the lack of knowledge about Canadian black history

It’s very convenient for us emotionally to point fingers at other countries and to not know our own history. We know about black American culture. We know very

through the building, with local MLA Richard Lee and staff from SUCCESS. “Afghan people, they love space.” While B.C. Housing always owned Hillside Gardens, they used to have a private property manager run the place before the fire. In May 2009, the settlement services group SUCCESS took over as the property manager. They also run programs for the tenants and help them adjust to life in Canada, since many of them are new immigrants or refugees. While Basmina’s siblings are mostly at school, their mom, Aqela, attends a cooking group and an English class, two of the programs available through SUCCESS. There are 162 suites in the family housing complex, which has 15 buildings. The province has promised to convert roughly 100 of those units to subsidized hous-

ing for low-income families or new immigrants. People get rental supplements from B.C. Housing so they don’t need to pay more than a third of their income on rent. A typical two-bedroom apartment there costs about $900 a month without subsidies. But not everyone is singing the praises of Hillside Gardens. This past week, local MLA Raj Chouhan heard complaints from a family of eight living in a three bedroom suite at Hillside Gardens waiting for something bigger. “There are only two units with four bedrooms and three units with three bedrooms. The rest of them are still the same two bedroom units,” Chouhan said of the new building. “In a five-acre complex, the improvement they have done is very small compared to the larger need of people who are looking for affordable housing.” Chouhan has seen some of the

Chase: Motorcycles lead high-speed chase through streets continued from page 1

“Along Highway 1 in Burnaby, both motorcycles were literally passing cars like they were standing still,” said Sgt. Peter Thiessen in a press release. RCMP officers attempted to pull over both motorcycles near the Dollarton exit in North Vancouver. Both vehicles initially stopped, but one driver immediately left again.

Air 1 continued to track the motorcycle driver who fled as the driver proceeded east on Dollarton Highway, passing vehicles over the double solid lines and nearly colliding with oncoming traffic. The driver turned around and then drove past the location of the original traffic stop where the first motorcycle was still pulled over. “The driver continued on, splitting lanes and passing unsafely,”

said Thiessen. “ The driver ended up crossing the Second Narrows Bridge, left Highway 1 at Rupert Street in Vancouver, headed south and went through a red light at Broadway. “Upon reaching Kingsway, the suspect vehicle went through the red light and travelled east in the westbound lanes for about 100 metres,” said Thiessen. “The driv-

little about black Canadian culture. Most people can talk about African-American artists, musicians, writers, but few have read those from Canada. And the same thing goes for our history. We sort of have this national narrative of Canada being a great country, a world saviour, and it’s very convenient and comforting. Some of us know a bit about the underground railroad, but few people know that slavery existed in Canada, too. It was finally abolished in the British Empire in 1834. It’s part of our history that’s ugly and unpleasant, and it makes us feel uncomfortable, so we tend to forget about it.

On his message for the students

(To) think about the possibility of expanding themselves through international volunteerism or being interested in people in other parts of the world.

Some, indeed, will can interrogate that person for hours, declining every subsesee it as a handy tool against quent request for consultation. criminals. In fact, it’s a worryBurnaby NOW A conviction based on that ing erosion of freedom. interrogation is perfectly valid. In a split decision, the court ruled There’s no question that some guilty that the right to a lawyer during police interrogation is not protected by the individuals go free on technicalities. In constitution. As long as someone such instances, lawyers can seem like


more of an obstruction to justice than a defender, but this perception is flawed. The right to a lawyer exists to ensure that those accused of breaking the law understand our justice system and ultimately receive a fair trial. This week’s ruling undermines that. In the pursuit of a confession, police interrogators can veer into legally dubious territory, but without legal counsel, there is no one there to pull them back.

Restricting access to lawyers simply increases the odds the wrong person will go to jail. It’s been said that people will trade freedom for security, as long as it’s someone else’s freedom. Where the constitution is involved, however, the freedom is never someone else’s. If you were accused of a crime, which of your rights would you discard?

Female leaders walk a tough road IN MY VIEW


Julie MacLellan

t began with a harmless enough discussion in the newsroom. My colleagues started to chat about NDP leader Carole James, and the consensus seemed to be: “She’s a nice lady, but she’s not much of a leader.” I think it was the use of the word “lady” that did it. Out came my soapbox, and up on it I climbed. It was a long rant, but the basic premise is this: Female leaders are still being judged through a sexist lens. Before all you men start saying, “What, I’m not allowed to express an opinion about a woman in politics without being labelled sexist?” – no, that is absolutely not what I mean. What I mean is that we as a society – both men and women – have been so conditioned to associate “leadership” with “man” that we don’t even realize we’re doing it. We pass judgment on a person’s leadership qualities based on our experience of what “leaders” look, act and sound like. Which is to say: Male. Think about it. What do we think of when we think of a leader? Usually, some-

one who’s aggressive. Assertive. Forceful. Dominant. Competitive. Am I saying that women can’t be those things? Of course not. I know countless women who embody those qualities. But those characteristics are traditionally associated with “masculine” mindset and behaviour. As a society, those aren’t qualities we nurture or value in girls and women. From the playground on up, little girls are urged to play nice and work together, and little boys are encouraged to run faster, throw harder and just generally do better than the other guy. This often-unconscious stereotyping leads to unmistakable differences between men’s and women’s styles of relating to other people – and, inevitably, to differences in leadership style. Think, if you will, of some of the qualities we associate with “feminine” mindset and behaviour. Cooperation. Conciliation. Empathy. Compassion. Qualities, in short, that we ascribe to “nice” people – but not to leaders. And that’s where James – and a whole lot of other women, in politics and in business – come up against a no-win situation. Try to lead in a traditionally “feminine” way, with cooperation and conciliation and empathy, and you’ll be written off as weak. Try to lead in a more traditionally “masculine” way, with aggression and dominance and

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Islam deserves more respect

Dear Editor

Re: Bad call on Islamic proclamation, Letters to the editor, Burnaby NOW, Oct. 13. History is likely going to remember the early 21st century as the time when hate rhetoric against Muslims and Islam could safely hide behind the mask of free speech. Letter writer Ziggy Eckardt writes that “Islam is culturally too dysfunctional … to contribute to the evolution of civilization.” Can such a broad statement about a quarter of the earth’s population be categorized as anything other than racism? Attempts by Muslims to improve their image and gain popular acceptance after the horrors of 9/11 should not be met with resistance, but should be encouraged. People like Mr. Eckardt, who appear to have gleaned much of their cultural education from the

Religion doesn’t build civilization Dear Editor:

I thought that I have become immune to strange actions coming from elected politicians, but the proclamation recently signed by Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan, establishing an “Islamic Heritage Month” in the city, is in a class by itself when it comes to the lack of understanding of the basic principles of what human civilization and heritage are all about. Perhaps the intentions were noble, and I have the same respect for the followers of the Islamic faith as I

have for the people of different other faiths, or for those who follow the Buddhist, Confucian, Sikh principles, even for atheists, agnostics and others. However to proclaim that “Islamic civilization and heritage belong not only to Muslim Canadians …” is as nonsensical as one talking about Catholic, Protestant, Judaic, Sikh or Episcopalian civilizations, for such things simply don’t exist! Civilizations and scientific endeavours were created by human beings in different countries, in different times, no matter which religion they adhered to, if any at all. It is true that some thousand years ago, scientists, physicians, poets and mathematicians from Persia, Arabia, Syria, Egypt, who were converted to Islam either before or after their “significant contributions to the well-being of humanity” were a leading force in the progress of human endeavours, but why mix religion with their

accomplishments? Nobody talks, or cares about, whether Leonardo Da Vinci, Galileo, Copernicus, Isaac Newton, Pasteur, Vincent van Gogh or Rembrandt, to name but a few, were faithful Catholics, Protestants, Baptists or whatever, and nobody links their creativity to their religion. When Mayor Corrigan opened the floodgates by declaring Islamic Heritage Month, he better be ready for a Catholic Heritage Month, other months for the Baptists, Hindus, Buddhists, Unitarians, Greeks Orthodox, and many others, even another for the Hare Krishna followers, all well represented in Burnaby, and, why not, one special Atheist Heritage Month, because, based on attendance to religious services, I would bet that they probably form the greatest majority of the people living in Burnaby. And each of the above have made their own important contribution to the wellbeing of humanity. Jack Chivo, West Vancouver

forcefulness, and you’ll be written off as a “bitch.” It’s a catch-22 that’s still all too prevalent, considering that we’re a decade in to the 21st century. Enough already, you say. It’s a tired old feminist refrain that’s been sung to death. Fair enough. It is. What’s sad is that it’s still true. Consider this list of names: Gordon. Ed. Brad. Greg. Dalton. Jean. Darrell. David. Robert. Danny. Dennis. Floyd. Eva. That would be the premiers of Canada’s provinces and territories – all male, with the single exception of Eva Aariak of Nunavut. Federally, how does Parliament look? Well, we have Stephen, Michael, Gilles and Jack as party leaders. And, according to a study on the government’s own website, as of 2008, 68 of 308 seats were held by women – that’s a sad 22.1 per cent. Municipal governments, according to the same study, fare a touch better, with 23.4 per cent female representation. That’s still a sad number. Here in Burnaby, we’re no exception: We have a male mayor, and two of eight councillors are female.

How about worldwide? Well, take a look at the G8 leaders and you’ll find Angela Merkel, chancellor of Germany, as the solitary woman. (Interestingly, Merkel is the leader of a country where coalition government is the norm – she became chancellor not by virtue of winning the most seats in a first-pastthe-post election, but by building alliances. Sounds rather like cooperation, doesn’t it?) Still not swayed? Consider the recently published Forbes magazine list of the World’s 100 Most Powerful Women. Topping the list? Michelle Obama. Yup, if you’re a woman in 2010, having the right husband apparently makes you more powerful than being Secretary of State (Hillary Clinton, No. 5) or, for that matter, leading a country yourself (Merkel, No. 4). I’m not dissing Obama. I think she’s an incredible role model in many ways, and she’s choosing to make the office of First Lady mean far more than just “attractive woman with great clothes who looks good beside the president.” But in a world without gender bias, surely she would be the most power-

ful woman in the world for being the president – not for being married to him. Sigh. I’m not saying there are any easy answers. Finding ways to ensure better female representation in politics and in leadership positions of all kinds is a complex task. But surely a good first step is for us to acknowledge that, yes, we still have a huge societal problem with sexism. So go ahead and think that Carole James isn’t leadership material. Go ahead and dislike her policies, her party, her politics, her vision for B.C. (or, some might argue, her lack thereof). But before you dismiss her as just a “nice lady,” stop and think. Are you dismissing her because she’s not effective as a leader? Or because maybe, just maybe, you’ve been influenced by perceptions that have less to do with real leadership ability and more to do with old stereotypes and gender biases?

City man facing charge of keeping a bawdy house Case involves women brought in from Hong Kong to work in the sex trade

A 47-year-old Burnaby man is facing one count of living off the avails of prostitution and four counts of keeping a common bawdy house after a two-year investigation by the RCMP’s federal border integrity program. Jian Feng “Michael” Li appeared in Vancouver Provincial Court on Oct. 13 and is accused of sponsoring women from Hong Kong who were forced to work in the sex trade when they came to Canada. Li is alleged to have used the website Craigslist to advertise four brothels that he was running in Surrey, Burnaby, Coquitlam and Richmond. RCMP investigators believe Li was making up to $40,000 a week with the women under his control. According to RCMP media relations officer Const. Michael McLaughlin, this case was complicated by language bar-

riers, the reluctance of some victims and witnesses to testify, and the fact that the victims often do not stay in Canada. “These complications made human trafficking charges under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act difficult,” said McLaughlin in a press release. McLaughlin said the RCMP is always on the lookout for cases of potential human trafficking. “Human trafficking is generating huge profits for criminal organizations,” said McLaughlin. “If you see people in your community who can’t speak English or French, who always have someone speaking for them, who are getting moved frequently or who appear unfamiliar with their surroundings despite being there for an extended period, then you could be dealing with victims of human trafficking. “If you notice any of the above signs of human trafficking, do your part by calling your local police detachment.” – Alfie Lau

Hotel room tax good news for Tourism Burnaby Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

The province’s additional hotel room tax is here to stay, for the time being, and Tourism Burnaby’s executive director is relieved. “For us, it’s fantastic,” Matthew Coyne said in a phone interview. The additional two per cent tax funds tourism marketing in 50 communities throughout B.C., including Burnaby. The bulk of Tourism Burnaby’s funding comes from the tax, Coyne said. “We’re not a city organization, we’re a non-profit,” he explained, adding the

The tax is in added to the room charge, and hotel clients are then charged the 12 per cent HST on top of that. Those communities that institute the hotel tax do so for a period of five years, at which time they must reapply for another five years.

City of Burnaby builds a bigger web presence Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

While you can’t wander the hallways and stop in at the mayor’s office for a chat, the virtual city hall project is still ambitious. The intent of the project is to make it easier for residents to access services and communicate with the city, according to project sponsor Pat Tennant. “It is a way for citizens and the public to connect with city hall,” she said. Integrated e-business services are also part of the concept for the new site. The city’s current website,, and the city’s internal service access

provider (SAP) portal are all part of the overhaul. City council approved $980,000 in funding for the project on Oct. 4. The new city website is expected to be up and running by late summer 2011. But Tennant said it would not be a static, one-time upgrade. “The nature of services is always evolving,” she said. “The site will continue to evolve over the years.” The goal right now is to establish a vision and a road map for the site, Tennant added. “We’re working on a detailed project plan,” she said. “We’re starting out with a design concept.”

At this stage Tennant and the project steering committee are picking a design facilitator for the project. To come up with a design, the city is meeting with stakeholders and conducting research and analysis to understand users’ needs better. Any feedback submitted on the city’s website will be looked at, Tennant said. Users of the city’s website are a diverse group, Tennant said, particularly in computer proficiency levels. “As we look at the design, we have to take that into account,” she noted. The project is slated to take place in four stages. The first, the

design concept phase, is scheduled between now and December, and estimated to cost $150,000. The second, the detailed design phase, is intended to solidify the site’s design elements, to be completed between January and February 2011, at a cost of $150,000. The third, the technical architecture phase, will look at the architecture needed to support the design and how to integrate services from the current site. This is slated to occur concurrently with the design planning phases, between November 2010 and January 2011, at a cost of $250,000. The implementation phase

is set to take place between February and August 2011, at a cost of $325,000. The city’s website first launched in 1998, and was enhanced in 2003. The city launched a new home page in June 2009. The city’s internal SAP portal went live in 2007. The project steering committee includes a number of city staff: Gisele Caron, purchasing manager; Dave Ellenwood, director of parks, recreation and culture; Doug Louie, assistant director of engineering; Doug McDonald, deputy fire chief; Kim Munro, director of human resources; Edel Toner-Rogala, chief librarian; and Chad Turpin, deputy city manager.

Change in a cup of tea T

his may be one of the coolest ideas I’ve come across in a long time. (My apologies to those who read this on my blog already – I wanted to bring it to the print world, too.) Confession: It’s not really about the “arts,” but hey, indulge me. Once in awhile I like to go off on tangents – and this is something that you engaged-with-the-community artists out there will appreciate. When I’m not writing about arts or laying out pages, I also coordinate the Paper Postcards for the NOW. You may know the feature – readers take our paper along on their travels, take a photo with it in front of some scenic backdrop or landmark, and send it to us to run in the paper. It’s turned out to be enormously popular, and I absolutely love seeing all the places the NOW has been trekking (even though I get green with envy many days). Recently, I got an e-mail from Greg Dion, a 25-year-old Burnaby guy now living in London, England – on a year of travel and searching for “some proper direction in life,” as he wrote. Besides sending us a cool photo of himself in London (I’ve posted it on my blog), he also let us know about a project he’s started up. The 100 Cups project is his way of getting strangers to connect more – “to embrace conversation in a world that is becoming more and more automated and isolated,” he writes. “London is a lovely city, but it is amazing how lonely it can feel, even amongst the eight million people who run around the city each day. I figure maybe I can inject some of that Burnaby friendliness into London – get people to embrace and appreciate each other more.” The idea is simple: to have 100 cups of tea with 100 strangers, and see what transpires. I couldn’t say it any better than Greg on his own website, so I won’t try. Here’s his explanation, in part: We live in a world where a store worth visiting is one in which you can buy your groceries, purchase new clothes, do your banking, have pictures developed, renew your car insurance … the list goes on ... We want a Lively City Page 14

Students make a joyful noise Getting greener

tudents at Burnaby’s newest elementary school will be banging on drums and clashing cymbals, thanks to a donation of musical instruments from the Music B.C. Charitable Foundation. Students at University Highlands Elementary will be able to get their hands on drums, xylophones, glockenspiels, tambourines, cymbals, bells and other percussion pieces. “This school was decided upon since it seemed to be a perfect opportunity to help with the very beginning stages of musical education,” said the foundation’s Amber Jager. In all, there will about 100 instruments donated through the foundation’s Adopt an Instrument program, which was formed in response to budget cuts taking their toll on music programs in B.C. schools.

Hundreds of students and staff at Taylor Park Elementary were poised to plant native trees, shrubs and ground covering plants at their school on Oct. 15. The City of Burnaby is leading the effort and had staff on hand to help. About 400 students participated, and each student got to plant three things. The planting is part of a larger city plan to restore the area and was made possible by a $3,000 grant from Trees Canada. “The idea is to bring wildlife habitat back to Taylor Park,” said Melinda Yong, an environmental technician with the city’s parks department. Taylor Park is close to the Edmonds SkyTrain station, and the elementary school is close to the park. Taylor Park was built on a landfill, Yong explained. As a result, the soil conditions are poor and it’s easy for invasive species to take root. The Invasive Plant Council of B.C. has also been onsite remove invasive species.

From books to TV

If you’ve ever wondered how to turn a book into a TV script, the McGill library branch has some answers. Award-winning writer Susin Nielsen is leading a workshop on Oct. 19 on the different writing styles for TV and books. Nielsen will show a clip from one of her shows, and participants will have the chance to do a bit of acting. Nielsen has written for a number of TV shows, including Degrassi High, Degrassi Junior High, Ready or Not, Madison, Edgemont and Heartland. The McGill branch is at 4595 Albert St. and the workshop starts at 7 p.m. It’s suitable for preteens, as well as adults.

Fast draw

Burnaby sharpshooter Karen Robinson finished third in a recent World Fast Draw Association sanctioned contest in Colorado. Robinson placed third overall in the women’s AA division at the end of September. Shooters from

the U.S. and Canada participated in the contest. In fast draw, the shooter wears an old-fashioned leg holster, which holds a revolver loaded with wax bullets or blanks. The competitors line up and wait for a light signal to draw their weapons before firing on a target attached to a timing device. Whoever is fastest wins, but accuracy is just as important. Missed targets are penalized by adding a full second to the shooter’s score. Robinson is a member of the Thunderbird Fast Draw Club, which meets for shooting practice in Langley every Friday evening.

us, graciousness in appreciating the gifts of our past and the gifts of the present, and graciousness to give forward and outward to others. When I tuck my daughter into bed, we say a prayer of thanks for the blessings of the day, and we promise to give the love that Grandma gave us in the past to others in our present and future. We will pay forward this legacy of love, which like all the great gifts in life are not ours to keep, but to appreciate and give away. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician at PrimeCare Medical. His Healthwise column appears regularly in this paper, and his Internet radio show can be heard on BurnNow: Oct 16/10


ith the years, I have learned that half of the happiness of life comes from how I think of it. So I frame each day with an attitude of gratitude. Before I rise, I say a prayer of thanks for the good in my life, those blessings received, not earned: health (at least the parts of the body that are working well), the people in my life today (my family, friends, colleagues and patients), the love I receive from them and the love I can give. We can be passive in our lives and in our relationships. We can struggle against the things that don’t seem to go our way. Life can seem random. Nothing ever goes exactly as planned, and we never have everything perfect and everything we want. Yet life just as randomly throws us blessings – good luck, a sunny break on a cloudy day, a gentle rain after a heat wave, a helping hand, a smile and a kind word when we need one. As I fall asleep, my last thoughts are a meditation of appreciation as I consider the blessings of the day. I appreciate the privilege of my work for it really is a privilege to care

people in our lives, past and present, to give thanks when and where we can, and to give those gifts in service to others. I have found that simple acts and words of thanks can make a profound impact on others. We all need to feel appreciated. To hear others tell us that we are and to know that we really have made a difference can lift our hearts. Too often we let these opportunities of thanksgiving pass by. We can never repay our parents for all that they have taught us, all the worry and all the sacrifices made on our behalf. We can never give back all the love we have been given. We must be gracious. There is graciousness in accepting what life gives

for individual patients – to have their confidence and trust, and to have the resources and the opportunity to ease their suffering and help them achieve their goals in life. This calling is gratifying in itself. I will miss my dear patient Mary Lou, who recently passed away after meeting her incurable condition with courage and grace. Ever gracious at every visit, she expressed thankfulness for the care she received and appreciation for her loving family. I recognize the responsibility of my calling and devote all my thought and energy to my tasks. Yet at the same time, I remember that even the good that I do comes not only from my own efforts. Clinical skills belong not only to the physician; they are the legacy of those who have taught me – my own mentors and instructors, and my patients. Compassion and caring come not from me alone; they are the legacy of those who have cared for me. We are nothing alone. Our gifts are the legacy of our parents, teachers and mentors, and they are not ours to keep but to give and pass on to others. The word “thanksgiving” captures grace in our lives. It is not merely taking a moment to count our blessings and to say a prayer of thanks. More than a passive appreciation, the “giving” is active – the action of recognizing the gifts we have been given by fate, luck and the

Whether you want to update your living space or start from scratch, make sure to have fun but don’t forget about function.

When you’re looking to outfit a living or family room, it’s important to ask yourself a couple of questions: How is the room going to be used and how many people do you want to accommodate.

“A lot of it is determined by function,” says Lower Mainland interior designer Sarah Gallop. People with kids and pets will want to choose furniture for its durability; those with a larger family or who entertain frequently will want to

Both Gallop and redesigner Eleanor Hunter recommend starting with the largest piece of furniture when looking to change things up. In most cases that’s going to be the couch, which is also usually the most expensive piece of furniture in the room. Both advocate playing it a bit safer when it comes to the fabric and colour of the couch. Sticking with a neutral tone in a more durable fabric will give the piece a longer lifespan. “You want it to be long lasting,” Gallop says. “That makes more sense with the bigger piece.” It also makes the most sense to start with the couch when deciding the layout of furniture in the room. Hunter, who is also a home stager, recommends finding, or creating, a focal point in the room. That could be an architectural point, such as a fireplace or a window with a fabulous view, or one that you can create and move, such as a TV or a piece of art.

Lady Gaga this year's popular costume Continued from PAGE 25 "I've got about 40 different costumes," said 19-year-old Kunz, who was made for her job – Halloween is her favourite time of year. "Halloween is better than Christmas ... because it's all about your imagination," she said. "I like the spook aspect. Some people come in and have no idea what they want to be. It's fun."

Helping them choose a costume gets the customers excited about Halloween, she said. "My favourite costumes are the ones that are really creative, the one I'm wearing now, I love. It's a mommy costume," she said. With laughter, intrigue and creativity in the aisles, there's one thing that isn't a mystery this Halloween: Kunz clearly isn't spooked by her job and genuinely loves helping people find just the right costume, so visit her and the team at Value Village on Edmonds Street where the dress-up options are endless.

Cadillac reaching out to younger car buyers David Chao and Bob McHugh

NOW contributors


adillac has a long history of famous coupes, including the ‘59 Eldorado, whose iconic tail fins are often used to symbolize a golden era for American automobile production and prosperity. It’s been eight years since an Eldorado Coupe last graced a Cadillac new car showroom, but a coupe is back for 2011. Cadillac has expanded its successful rear-drive CTS line up to include a sexy two-door version. While nothing like its older predecessor, the CTS reflects the dramatic changes that have also taken place within the prestigious luxury car division of General Motors. The CTS line has transformed Cadillac and made it far more appealing to younger buyers. Its sharp and very distinctive styling lines are augmented by a rigid chassis and a sport-tuned suspension. Two high-output V6’s and a V8 (borrowed from the Corvette) are the engine choices, a manual transmission is offered, and the interior is decidedly driver-focused yet still

luxurious. The Cadillac CTS line started with a four-door sedan (back in 2003) and was expanded to include a high performance CTS-V, which Cadillac claims is the fastest production four-door sedan in the world. A secondgeneration CTS was introduced in 2008, a wagon version was added last year, and the Coupe is the latest addition. Our test CTS Coupe (base price $47,450) came with a six-speed automatic transmission included in a (Premium) Preferred Equipment ($7,085) package, a Sport ($1,770) packages plus a special “Tintcoat” paint ($1,295) – all of which pushed its price up to $59,250, including fees and delivery charges. The Sport package adds 19inch polished aluminum wheels with performance tires, a load levelling rear suspension, steering wheel transmission shifters and more. The base CTS sedan comes with a 3.0-litre (270-horsepower) V6 engine and a choice of manual or automatic transmissions. The CTS-V coupe comes with a 6.2-litre (556-horsepower) supercharged V8 engine and a

four valves per cylinder, variable valve timing and direct fuel injection. It can produce 304 horsepower at 6400 r.p.m. and 273 lb.-ft. of torque at 5300

MOTORING Cadillac: Edgy design makes new CTS Coupe a head-turner continued from page 31

all-wheel-drive edition.

The Looks

Nicely proportioned and lower than the sedan, the CTS Coupe has the same sharply chiselled and very distinctive styling lines. While the coupe’s wheelbase is the same as the sedan, the body is a little shorter and it has a wider rear track. The Coupe’s front windshield is also more steeply raked than the sedan and so is its rear window. Centrally positioned dualexhaust pipes is another distinctively coupe feature. Its extralarge doors also have unusual and hidden push-button latch releases instead of conventional door handles. There’s a similar electric latch release on the lower lip of the trunk lid. The cargo space was smaller than anticipated, the opening is on the narrow side and space has to be left for large hinges that can crush items stowed in the trunk when the lid is closed.

The Inside

The Coupe’s dash is much like the sedan with a three-pod

instrument cluster, with a combination of analog and digital readouts, in front of the driver. A centrally positioned chromeringed analog time clock adds a touch of elegance, and above it there’s a partially hidden pop-up monitor. The centre console flows nicely into the dash, and it houses cleverly positioned climate controls and seat heat/cool controls for the front seating positions. Other than the console box, there are limited storage spots, and the door pockets are small. The front bucket seats are generously sized, and you sit lower, more sports-car-like, than in the sedan. Getting into the back seat of a coupe is never easy, but the CTS Coupe is particularly awkward. The front seats don’t have a single-action fold forward feature and front seatbelt, which is attached to the front seat, gets in the way. The two rear seating positions look inviting and are nicely padded and upholstered. Head and leg room is limited, however, so it’s more of an occasional use or kids’ seating location. On the plus side, the front seat positions have a generous

range of adjustments. Combined with a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a comfortable driving poison is easy to achieve.


The front passenger is protected by a unique dual-depth design of air bag that is even more effective at reducing injuries in a vehicle collision. The OnStar system with its security and emergency features is another GM exclusive.

The Drive

The driving position is excellent with an excellent range of adjustments on the seats for taller than average drivers. Rear vision through the Coupe’s steeply raked rear window is limited, and the side mirrors are small, so the rear view camera came in very handy. The sport package on our test CTS Coupe stiffened the ride, but it was still comfortable. The body feels rock solid over rough roads and this car tracks a straight line extremely well, which is always a confidence builder. The steering is on the light side, yet has a precise action, and the CTS Coupe is reason-

Efficient: The Cadillac CTS Coupe has a well-designed dashboard and centre console.

ably agile for a vehicle its size and weight. It does feel heavier than most of its competitors and could pull better at low engine speeds. The transmission shifts smoothly, but if you want to drive more enthusiastically, the manual mode is the way to go, as the engine livens up considerably above 4,000 r.p.m. Manual shifts are via steering wheel-mounted buttons on the

back of the steering wheel. Here again the action is not as crisp as some competitors and a sport automatic mode would be a good addition.

The Score

It’s all about style, and Cadillac CTS Coupe certainly has a head-turning, edgy body design, a beautiful interior, and it’s priced competitively in its class.

What your teen needs to know to drive smart So your teenager wants to hit the road – in your car. What can you do to help them stay safe? ICBC is reminding parents of the importance of helping teens to drive smart. Once a teen has passed a knowledge exam and vision test, they’re permitted to get behind the wheel – with some restrictions. However, driving is especially risky when drivers lack experience: Not only are new drivers more prone to crash, one in four of their crashes result in an injury or fatality. And, considering the number of young drivers on the road – in 2009, more than 50,000 teens got their first B.C. driver’s licence – it’s important to keep teens as safe as possible. Here are ICBC’s top five tips to help you teach your teen how to drive smart: ◆ Set the right example: Driving lessons start much earlier than you may realize – your children will observe your actions and attitude from a very young age. To set a good example, remember that most driving slip-ups result from lapses of attention – stay away from anything that takes your mind from the road whether it’s food, coffee or makeup. And remember, it’s not only dangerous but it’s now against the law to use a handheld electronic device while driving. When your teen’s in the learner stage, you’ll get a copy of ICBC’s Tuning up for Drivers guide with their licence. Review it with them – it’s a great hands-on guide for new drivers and their supervisors. This is a good time for parents to brush up on the rules of the road and work on any bad habits. ◆ Get in the experts: It’s certainly a good idea to give your teen as much driving experience as possible, so consider also giving them the opportunity to take some lessons with a professional driving instructor. Many driving school courses include classroom time and road safety theory. More importantly, a driving school instructor can be objective without the emotion involved in many parent-teen relationships. If you do choose this route, remember to stay involved and discuss what they’re learning. ◆ Remember the restrictions: B.C.’s graduated licensing program has helped lower

the crash rate of new drivers by ensuring they gain the driving experience they need in a more controlled, lower-risk environment, and then expanding their privileges as they become safer on the road. As a parent, you should know the restrictions of the program and ensure that your teen sticks to them. The newest restriction bans drivers in the graduated licensing stage from using cellphones and all electronic devices while driving, including hands-free. Remember, too, that in the novice stage, you must always display your green ‘N’ sign on the back of your vehicle when driving; you cannot drive with any alcohol in your system; and you are limited to one passenger (immediate family exempt) unless you are driving with a supervisor 25 years or older who has a valid, full driver’s licence. ◆ Put it in writing: You may want to consider creating a family contract and set of house rules that are in line with the restrictions of the graduated licensing program. Go to ( family-contract) for a guide that sets out your expectations of your teen, the responsibilities you want them to show on the road and the consequences for breaking those rules. Like any contract, it should be a two-way deal – as a responsible parent, you should agree to drive your teen home if they’ve been drinking to stop them from being tempted to drive impaired. ◆ Gearing up: The type of car your teen learns to drive on can make a big difference. It’s best to learn how to drive on a vehicle that’s a manageable size and has good visibility. Stick to an automatic transmission until your teen has mastered the basics. A great way to help build your teen’s confidence is to start out on roads with less traffic and avoid rush hour congestion. As a final bonus tip, if you’re letting your teen drive your car, don’t forget to check that you have the right insurance coverage for that kind of use. If your vehicle is rated in an experienced rate class (all drivers in a household with at least 10 years’ driving experience), then the rate class will need to be changed. Visit for more tips.

Sluggish car? Could be a filter

A sluggish car could mean any number of things, each of which could be expensive. But drivers often overlook an inexpensive part of the car’s mechanics that can be contributing to slower acceleration and overconsumption of fuel: the air filter. A vehicle has air filters and fuel filters that help to remove impurities and promote better engine performance. Over time, these filters can become clogged with grime and debris. Experts say that thoroughly maintaining air filters is one of the single most inexpensive and effective ways to improve overall vehicle performance. Changing a car’s filters on a regular basis can have a significant impact on engine life. Many oil change shops will offer to change an air filter at an additional charge.

For vehicle owners who want to tackle the job on their own, replacing an air filter is a relatively easy procedure. The air filter is generally housed in a large, plastic black box under the hood. The box cover is often held in place with large metal clips or screws, so a screwdriver is essential. Once the box is located, open it up to reveal the filter. Inside the filter is often white, bright yellow, orange or red. Remove the grimy filter and set aside. (Older cars may have a doughnut-shaped air filter housed in a round box). Place the new filter in the chamber and reseal the clips or screws on the cover. Give the car a test spin to ensure the filter is working as it should. A driver may notice improved pickup.

Lunge for better legs KEEPING FIT


Shaun Karp

unges are easy to incorporate into your workout routines because there are many variations, from stationary lunges to walking and jump lunges. The great thing about lunges is that you do not need to be a gym buff to be able to do them. They can be used as a toning exercise for beginners. However, if you are an athlete there are also sport-specific variations designed to increase your speed and power. When performing lunges, it is important to keep your head up and back straight. Leaning forward may cause you to lose your balance and will increase the stress on your back and knees. Step out with one leg forward, dropping the back leg toward the floor by bending your knee. It is key that your front knee does not go past the front toe; the position of the lunge is achieved when

your front thigh is parallel to the floor. Using your buttocks and quadriceps to push yourself up, push back up with your front leg to the starting position: legs shoulder width apart, with approximately 60 to 90 centimetres in between your front and back leg. Complete this several times on each leg, staying within your comfort level. All of the variations of the lunge spring from the basic positioning of the stationary lunge. The walking lunge involves walking forward, using the lunge as your stride. The jump lunge is a lunge you simply jump into; the jump lunge is also great for adding a bit of a cardio component to the basic lunge. For more variation, alternate lunges involve alternating between each leg; one lunge on one leg, alternated with one lunge on the other. In comparison to the walking lunge, this one is done in place, alternating between each leg for the set. The most challenging of the lunges is the footup lunge, and it requires a little more technique than the stationary and walking lunges. For the foot-up lunge, elevate your back foot on a step and

lunge on your front leg. This increases the balance requirement for the lunge and forces the front leg to bear almost all of your body weight. Aside from the numerous variations that the lunge offers, another advantage of lunges is that you do not need to use as heavy weights, should you decide to integrate weights into your lunges for a greater challenge. The reduced weight also makes lunges an easier exercise on your body, specifically your back. However, if you have any back issues, it is even more important to keep good form. Watching yourself in a mirror is a great way to catch yourself for poor form. Lunges are a really versatile exercise and leave a lot of room for you to progress. Starting off with simple lunges and progressing to more challenging lunges, such as the foot-up lunge, is optimal for progressing to a higher level. Adding a medicine ball, rubber exercise band, dumbbells or barbells can really kick up the lunge to the next level. Shaun Karp is a certified personal trainer.

MOORE, Gertrude Edith (Trudy)

Died suddenly at home in New Westminster on Tuesday, Sept. 21, 2010. Known as Trudy by her many B.C. friends, but grew up as Gertrude in Oshawa, ON., one of five siblings. Trained in Ottawa as a Registered Laboratory Technologist, specializing in Haematology and Microbiology, Gertrude’s career took her to Syracuse, N.Y., Bermuda, and New Westminster where she worked as microbiologist at the Royal Columbian Hospital from 1953 until her retirement in 1989. Gertrude was loved by all who knew her. Her great loves were nature and animals, art and music. She travelled to many parts of the world on birding or cultural trips and also had fun on wilderness canoe trips with Ontario siblings. She was a long-time volunteer with Orphaned Wildlife, and worked to support causes related to animals and the environment. Gertrude’s joy in her seven successive “pooches” cannot be overlooked. She served on the Arts Council and was herself a painter. She played viola for many years with the Elgar Strings and the New Westminster Symphony, also serving on the Board of Directors. She also quietly supported upcoming musicians. Gertrude’s long phone visits will be sorely missed by her siblings: Ruth Jones (Johnnie,deceased) Richmond, B.C., Bett Warnica (Jim), Oshawa ON, Dave Moore (June), St. Catharines ON, and Mary Buck (Bob) Mississauga ON. Loved by nieces and nephews Olwen, Leslie, Wayne, Richard (deceased), David, Gwen and Bruce, as well as many great-nieces and nephews. A celebration of Gertrude’s life will be held on October 18th, 7 - 9 pm at the Glenbrook Park Amenities Building in New Westminster and her ashes will be interred in Oshawa, ON. Her family thanks Trudy’s friends and neighbours for their kind help over the last few years. If desired, donations could be made to Orphaned Wildlife, or the New Westminster Symphony, or a charity of your choice.

EDUCATION CAREER COACH What are Time, Energy and Happiness Worth to You?

Chris Newell

This article is by Chris Newell, Career Coach and Facilitator with Transitions Career & Business Consultants.

Whenever we say ‘yes’ to one thing, we are saying ‘no’ to something else. When exploring and committing to a career change, sacrifices are necessary. It takes time, energy and money to investigate, develop and secure a career that will ultimately provide you with the time, energy and money that you desire. The average person will spend approximately 45 years of their life involved in the world of work. This breaks down to approximately 40 hours a week, 8 hours a day. And this is a conservative figure when you factor in overtime, commuting time, and the energy you spend thinking about work-related things, even when you’re not there. A huge portion of life is devoted to work. If you are experiencing intellectual, creative, social or physical satisfaction in your work, then it will be a huge joy. If you are experiencing very little satisfaction, or if it’s depleting you of your own humanness, then it will be a huge burden. I believe that life is too precious and too short to tolerate a painful situation, not when there are alternatives you can access. Yes, the process of making a career change can take considerable time, energy and money, (trust me, I know, I’ve made several career changes in my life), but you need to see this process as an investment toward your daily, as well as long term peace and happiness. It takes courage, commitment and a positive attitude to pursue a career path that can bring you closer to what you really want. It means saying ‘no’ to what’s contributing to your discontent and saying ‘yes’ to doing whatever it takes to acquire something meaningful, powerful and gratifying for you and your life! If you are ready to say ‘yes’ to changing careers call 604-434-1177 and sign up for an information session about the Transitions Program. Our government funded (no fee) three-week career exploration program is available to anyone who is unemployed or under employed and eligible to work in Canada.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Try to seal any deals, sign agreements, bid for opportunities, schedule/plan a first meeting, or bump into that attractive stranger. Remain diplomatic, accent the needs and desires of others. Your secret, intimate side has been ‘awake’ for some weeks now; a powerful sexual liaison could occur – be honest, ethical. Make sure both parties are free to love. In practical or business links, profit awaits – and you have ‘the edge.’ Be social, flirty Sunday. Retreat, plan and deal with agencies Monday/Tuesday: lucky results!t You shine, energy rises Wednesday onward: step lightly, carefully! Taurus April 20-May 20: Relationship, relocation, contract, negotiation and similar opportunities continue. So far, every opportunity has contained a flaw, restriction or ‘attached burden.’ But from October 28 onward (into early next January) opportunities will tend not to have a ‘catch.’ Contemplate this before you jump on anything this week or early next. Waiting could be lucky! Use this week to clean up chores. Sunday accents your duties, prestige. Happiness, friends, optimism shine on you Monday/Tuesday. Rest, plan WednesdayFriday. Your energy returns Saturday: so does fresh air, new excitement! Gemini May 21-June 20: It’s your last week of romance, creative urges and speculative success, so pursue these. Pleasure is necessary: it re-invigorates us so we can face, succeed in, chores and drudgery (which will return this Saturday onward). Yes, your ‘romantic month’ so far hasn’t been free of health and work frustrations, and I can’t promise these are over. To some degree, it will be 2011 before your wishes can comettrue, or unalloyed happiness revisit. Before this ‘happiness period’ starts, there is one last duty, career effort or ‘status change’ you must engage in – these shine with luck Monday/Tuesday!

Cancer June 21-July 22: This week, add one last brick to your security edifice. E.g., make a retirement fund contribution, repair the house, adjust a child’s direction, or simply get the winter larder stocked. (Apologies to southern hemi readers.) Next week, October’s slowly, quietly swelling romantic, creative, and pleasure trend will break into full bloom. Put your house in order before then. Sunday’s for mysteries, intimacies, finances. Wisdom, empathy arrive Monday/Tuesday. Be ambitious Wednesday to Friday, but be careful also: opposition lurks. Happiness and social delights arrive Friday night, Saturday! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The emphasis continues on communications, details, paperwork, errands, and casual acquaintances. Perform necessary tasks here quickly, now – Saturday will bring a month of domestic interests, and a sluggish ‘hibernation’ mood. You’ve already had a good taste of these domestic, homeoriented themes during September/October, but next week they will burgeon into full-fledged concerns, projects. Meanwhile, Sunday’s for relationships. Mysteries, successful intimate and financial actions fill Monday/Tuesday. Do your research: lucky discoveries await! Be wise Wednesday-Friday: dishonesty loses! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Continue to chase money, pay bills, search for viable smaller purchases. (Beware investments.) Enjoy and use the relative calm of this week – Saturday will begin a month of hectic (though happy) rushing. Tackle chores Sunday morning. Exciting meetings, lucky relationships and very valid opportunities arise Sunday night through Tuesday. Your investment, debt, intimate, sexual, lifestyle, health and subconscious zones come to the fore Wednesday to Friday. Take care here. Impulse might reward you Wednesday, but it sure won’t Thursday. Wisdom, gentle, mental love, travel Saturday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high. Your money/earnings luck is also good, through early January. Plan ahead – from next week through November you can capitalize on an old (or build a new) earnings project, especially if a partner is involved. (An old project/idea is better than a new.) Sunday morning’s for romance or a creative, sports, speculative or pleasure venture. Tackle chores this night to Tuesday – luck’s high, you could expand your employment or find another way to increase your income. Relationships excite yet have built-in obstacles Wednesday-Friday. Saturday’s sexy. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: It’s your last week of weariness, Scorpio. Saturday will bring a month of rising energy,charisma and effectiveness.Meanwhile, rest deeply (especially Sunday) contemplate and plan your future actions. Wrap up your dealings with government agencies or institutions. Expect creative, romantic or speculative luck Monday/Tuesday. But tackle chores Wednesday to Friday – carefully, and loyally. (Harmless ‘time off’ or a sensual temptation can dent your reputation.) Relationships, exciting meetings arrive Friday night, Saturday, just as a month of success and new starts arrives! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Enjoy this last week of celebration, wish fulfillment (and new wishes) optimism, popularity, flirtations and social delights – Saturday will bring a month of quietude and retreat. Run errands Sunday morning. Luck aids your efforts on domestic, real estate, security and ‘mother nature’ (e.g., gardening) fronts Monday/ Tuesday. Family members say/do things that bring you a glow of quiet joy. Chase romance, a gamble, sports or pleasure Wednesday to Friday – but carefully: illusion’s on one side, hard reality on the other. Tackle important chores Saturday.

Oct. 17 - Oct. 23 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Remain ambitious. Work hard, show your talents to VIPs, push projects ahead. But sense a subtle change: future weeks will shunt your most effective efforts from straight-ahead work, to the social level. Schmoozing, networking, will reward.That starts Saturday. Before then, Sunday morning brings money luck (more valuably, money dreams/ideas). Run errands, communicate, handle details and paperwork Monday/Tuesday. Security, home, business foundations grab your attention Wednesday to Friday – proceed steadily, cautiously. Romance, pleasure surge Friday night, Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your sweet, understanding mood continues. You’re dreamy, inspired – and charismatic – Sunday morning. Your money luck shines this night through Tuesday. Chase it, buy/sell, seek agreements, ask for a raise, etc. Affections might ‘build’ with a business or career contact. The future draws you Wednesday to Friday – your popularity and optimism soar! Seek entertainment, join a group, have fun. But take care, too: if you enjoy yourself too much, a boss or parent grows suspicious. A friend who flirts might have a cruel game in mind. Be a home-body Saturday: rest, putter, repair. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: This is your last week of mystery and secrecy, Pisces. Saturday will bring a month of enlightenment,understanding and compatible minds. You’ll tell the world what you know. But first, this week: Research, rest, remain in the background Sunday. This night through Tuesday raises your energy, charisma and effectiveness – jump into a lucky investment, debt-reduction, health, lifestyle, research, or intimate project. (Intimate project? Pregnancy, for instance.) Anything that will effect a beneficial (and the deeper the better) change in your life. Money caution Wednesday-Friday! Errands Saturday. • Reading: 416-686-5014
