Who’s minding the kids? Sex abuse case raises disturbing questions BY ALAN CAMPBELL acampbell@richmond-news.com

It’s a twisted scenario that a Richmond judge could not believe was allowed to happen. Just how did a man with no qualifications, who’d suffered horrific child sex abuse in a governmentrun facility in Richmond and now suffers from severe psychological issues, get the job as an overnight foster parent for a troubled and extremely challenged teenager? Mary Polak — Minister for Children and Family Development, which oversees foster care in B.C. — did not have the answer when asked Thursday by the News. Neither could Polak guarantee that someone with a truckload of glaring sexual and emotional problems would be prevented from stumbling into the same highly responsible position in the future. Kevin Fanning, 50, was this week jailed for 60 days after admitting to sexually exploiting and sexually assaulting a 17-year-old boy with learning difficulties while acting as his overnight respite care giver in a Richmond foster home.

Fanning had no previous criminal record and was sub-contracted to do the work by the primary foster parent; a decision that was approved by the boy’s social worker. But before Judge Ron Fratkin passed sentence, he told the court how he recalled Fanning giving evidence at a high-profile case in the 1990s, where he detailed a catalogue of sex abuse he suffered at age 11 while in a provincially-run Richmond care home. This week, Fratkin read from a 30-page psychological report on Fanning, which described how he led a miserable teenage life of being rejected and bullied by his peers; showed cruelty to animals; abused substances; developed sexual identity problems and then, by the age of 19, turned to male prostitution in Vancouver. Fratkin lambasted the authorities charged with the care of the 17year-old for allowing someone with Fanning’s disturbed past to get into such a precarious position. “In terms of situations where there is no criminal record that would have precluded them from see Polak page 4

Loved-up disabled couple beat the odds BY MICHELLE HOPKINS mhopkins@richmond-news.com

Like many couples married for more than two decades, David and Sheryl Jaud interrupt each other, correct each other and look at each other fondly when talking about how they met. That’s where many of the similarities end. The Richmond couple is both mentally disabled and on top of that Sheryl has cerebral palsy — an incurable condition that affects muscle movements due to brain damage. Yet, these two have beaten the odds. They survived growing up in Woodlands Institution on Ward 85, a provincial, residential asylum for the insane and mentally challenged. The government shut down the institution permanently in 1996 amidst reports of widespread abuse. “In the past, institutional living was the approach because there was no community support or resources of any kind,” said Lisa Cowell, RSCL fund developer. “Today, David and Sheryl stand as great examples for community living for people with disabilities.” David, 60, met Sheryl, 56, while both were teenagers living in Woodlands Institution. “All I can say is that many of the staff there were mean and would lock you up or make you eat baby food when you didn’t behave,” said Sheryl, who was 11 when she was institutionalized. David, who was placed in Woodlands as a young child, shakes his head, and while Sheryl clutches his hand he said: “I really blocked out what went on at Woodlands … it was a scary place.” Today, with the assistance from RSCL and their families, they are able to live independently. Sheryl and David don’t like to talk much about their time at Woodlands. They prefer to be thankful for the RSCL Supported Living program, which enables them to live a pretty independent life. In 1976, the couple moved into

David and Sheryl Jaud, a married, mentally disabled couple, living life with assistance from community support worker Nancy Lord (seated). a group home setting in Vancouver. Then, in 1987, they were married and moved into a new group home in Richmond. They have lived in their own apartment for nine years, mostly on their own, with some help from caregivers. However, David had serious medical complications that required him to have open-heart surgery less than a month ago. “We have increased their support to include overnight and weekend support staffing,” said Nancy Long, RSCL coordinator for the Supported Living program. “We have two overnight caregivers who rotate the nights to ensure David’s safety and ensure he takes his proper medication.” Long had worked and known the couple for 15 years. Her job is to help them live as independently as possible.

“I take them shopping and banking, and get them to their medical appointments.” Long went on to say that she has noticed huge improvements in the two since they have participated in life skills coaching. “They both know how to keep their home clean, how to cook … in fact, Sheryl makes good muffins,” Long added. “These are every day tasks that they had to learn late in life because they never learned these practical skills at Woodlands.” Over the years, Long has gone with the couple on holidays and weekend getaways; she has even invited them to her family cabin in the United States. “We have also done staycations where we’ve spent a week visiting other communities such as White Rock to spend the day on the beach, and we went to Tofino in a Winnebago.”

While David is busy doing his thing, Sheryl is either at Avenues for Art and cooking classes, or she’s volunteering, making meals for Wheels on Meals or at the Women’s Resource Centre cleaning or taking the garbage out. Meanwhile, the Jaud’s take the News on a tour of their two-bedroom apartment. It is clean, bright and cheery. A few of Sheryl’s oil paintings adorn the walls. “Sheryl is really good and she loves to paint,” said David proudly. As we shook hands goodbye, Sheryl and David hugged each other and added: “I love Sheryl because she’s so happy I’m back from my surgery … she missed me.” With a giggle and grin, Sheryl said: “I love him so I help him. We missed each other when he was in the hospital for three weeks.” For more information about RSCL, visit www.rscl.org.

care system. Such checks and screening of the potential respite foster parent are, however, carried out by the primary foster parent and the social worker and then rubber-stamped by the ministry. In the case of Fanning, either the checks were not carried out properly, or not at all. According to the psychological report presented in court, Fratkin said it should have been clear that Fanning was not suitable for the job at the time he was hired, regardless of his trouble past. Polak said, in light of cases such as Fanning’s, the ministry is aiming to keep a tighter control on the hiring of respite carers, but stopped short of guaranteeing others won’t slip through the net. “We conducted a number of different reviews to deal with that, but it is an imperfect science and we have individuals who are experts in that field of analysis,” she said. “It would be foolish to say that this will never happen again. We’re not going to have a perfect record in pre-

dicting these things. Polak added that the ministry has taken over the responsibility of maintaining records of background checks, something that had been left to foster parents. Earlier in the week, when Judge Fratkin asked Crown counsel Kirstin Murphy if the ministry knew about Fanning’s past, she replied, “no.” Murphy explained that the care of the boy was “outsourced.” Fanning’s lawyer, Adi Glouberman, told the judge that more could have been done to prevent her client from getting into such a role. “Unfortunately, there were not better checks and balances,” she said. Judge Fratkin added that, “It’s amazing he was hired with such a high degree of emotional problems and with absolutely no educational qualifications. Someone dropped the ball in giving him the position.” Fanning will be subject to a long list of probationary conditions for three years when he’s released next month.

with 636 marijuana plants, explained crown counsel Michael LeDressay. “There was potential for a yield of around 118 pounds, which values at anything from $1,500 to $3,800 per pound,” LeDressay told Richmond Provincial Court. Two rifles were also found during the raid, as well as 15 kilograms of ecstasy and, more disturbingly, a pipe bomb filled with gunpowder and equipped with a fuse. Hwang, however, only plead guilty to four charges: possession of marijuana for the purposes of trafficking; possession of methamphetamine for the purposes of trafficking; and two counts of the unsafe storage of rifles. His subsequent sentence came after both Crown and defence agreed on a number

Continued from page 1 working with children, it’s something that we have very little ability to deal with,” Polak admitted. “Without some kind of indication, it’s impossible for us to predict what might happen. I can’t say that there will never be cases where carers act inappropriately. It is a judgement call from our professionals as to whether or not the person in question is suitable for the position.” Polak told the News that a number of changes, announced this week, have been made in light of the Fanning case. However, most of the changes centre around more stringent and more frequent criminal record checks, none of which would have red-flagged someone with Fanning’s past. Polak’s ministry explained to the News that, as well as criminal record checks, there was, and still is, at the time Fanning got the job, a check called the prior contact check (PCC). The PCC can flag up persons who have been in protective childcare or previously involved with the foster

Fancy picking up the controversial Lenin/ Miss Mao work of art for a cool $700,000? Or what about the giant drip of “water” on the middle arm dyke for a mere $600,000 or Wind Waves at Garry Point for $400,000? That’s what the City of Richmond is being asked to consider by Richmond’s Public Art Advisory Committee. Richmond’s oftentimes eventful participation in the Vancouver Biennale temporary art exhibition, which began almost a year ago, wraps up in less than six months. Now the city’s public art advisory committee — which is made up of local arts enthusiasts — has contacted city council to request they look into the possibility of retaining one or some of the artworks when the exhibition finishes in April. Taxpayers thinking they could be on the hook need not panic, however. It’s highly likely that any such acquisition would — as happened in Vancouver after the 2005/07 Biennale — come courtesy of a generous donor or at a bargain basement price if the artist so wishes. Vancouver Biennale’s project co-coordinator, Gillian Wood, explained that come next spring, the works of art that are spread around Vancouver and Richmond will be auctioned off downtown by Christie’s. “We expect about 35 per cent of them to go,” Wood said.

“A selection will be sold at auction, but a lot of sales take place in the days afterwards. “I would hope that Richmond might be able to keep at least two of them and perhaps start a legacy in the city.” Wood added that the City of Vancouver managed to retain some of the 2005/07 Biennale works of art thanks to public donors. The City of Richmond’s staff liaison on the committee, public art planner Eric Fiss, would support any move to retain any of the Biennale pieces. “I guess it’s a case of finding out how much we can afford,” Fiss said. “If Water #10 (on the middle arm dyke) gets sold, then we would still need to have a large piece of art in its place. “But the funds for public art tends to come from developers. I’m happy just having the works shown here in the first place and if for some reason a developer offered to buy one for us, then that would be great.” Fiss wouldn’t say which piece of Biennale art, if possible, he would want to see remain in the city. “That’s not for me to say, a decision like that would go out to the public,” he said. Meanwhile, Wood said they are already considering inviting Richmond back into the Biennale fold when the next exhibition comes round in 2013. City staff are preparing a report to go before city council on the possible acquisition of any Biennale pieces.

he surprise ending to the legal case against former government aides Dave Basi and Bob Virk this week has done little to clear the air around this long-simmering political scandal. On the face of it, the shocking guilty pleas tell a tale of two bad apples — rogue Liberal insiders who went off the tracks, accepting bribes and favours in return for providing railway bidding information to lobbyists. But in the court of public opinion, lingering questions remain. Many question why the pair decided suddenly to plead guilty this week, after seven years, just as some heavyweight political muscle was about to be called to the stand. Nobody in the upper echelons of power whose inter-connected ranks were revealed by the case was keen for the trial to continue. The number of former cabinet ministers, political lobbyists, and friends in high places who must be relieved that some questions won’t even be asked now is impressive indeed. The public has a different viewpoint. With the plea deal and its sanitized version of events accepted, much of what may or may not have gone on behind the scenes in the complex case will remain subject to rumour and innuendo. As the finishing touch, however, the public will still inexplicably get to foot the legal bills for Basi and Virk — an estimated $6 million — despite the guilty pleas. Liberal insiders are undoubtedly happy this legal deal is done. But the whiff around the seven-year corruption case isn’t likely to go away. — North Shore News editorial

The Editor, Re: “Sex abuse cycle repeats itself,” News, Oct. 22. How can the public or an employer know the history of a person or a sex offender if they have no criminal record? How can we, as the public, be assured that any person employed in any position is safe to be around if their criminal record is clean? We need a much better, effective system in place to prevent this from ever happening again. Is this possible ? As the article states, the offender had “such a disturbing childhood and should never have been in a position of trust,” How do we, the public, protect ourselves if the information was not known. Were any of his friends or family aware of this? And if so, did they warn the public or the authorities? And what about the victim? How can society protect the sex abuse cycle from repeating itself? What does our system offer to prevent this from ever happening again? Gertie John Saskatoon (visiting Richmond)

Arm your kids with bully defence A critically important skill a parent can help their child to hone is defence against bullies. Bullies are found everywhere – they’re in school playgrounds, in cyberspace and even in adult-only workplaces. Despite antibullying programs (which are great), bullies aren’t going anywhere. They’ve always been part of life, and I fear they’re here to stay. Which is why teaching kids to withstand bullies so important. Bullying has been in the news a lot lately. There’s Phoebe Prince, a 15-yearold girl who had recently moved from Ireland to Massachusetts. The bullies called her the “Irish Slut” on Facebook, and threw things at her. She hung herself. Tyler Clementi, an 18year-old New Jersey student, killed himself after his roommate allegedly videotaped him having sex with a man. Kids who commit suicide after being bullied are the extreme, but bullying happens everyday, in such forms as nasty text messages, physical violence, exclusion and verbal threats. Fifteen per cent of all children reported that they had been the victim of bullies more than once or twice in the past six weeks, according to www.bullying.org. The peak age for bullying is 11 to 12 years old, and boys tend to report more physical forms of bullying, while girls report more indirect bullying such as gossiping and excluding. Many, many incidents

of bullying appear to be focused on sexual orientation, and I believe education can help that, if not totally eliminate this type of bullying. Dan Savage founded the It Gets Better Project www. itgetsbetterproject.com as a way for gay and lesbian adults to communicate directly with young people who are being bullied about their sexual orientation. “As adults, we now know what too many young, isolated, bullied LGBT kids do not: it gets better. Life gets better, and one day you find happiness,” Savage writes on the project’s website. If you know someone who could benefit from hearing wisdom directly from an adult who has been there, show them this website. When I suggest helping kids hone a strong defence against bullying, I don’t mean they should hit back, or that they should just cope. What I mean is that they should be equipped to deal with it. They should feel strong enough about themselves to know that bullying behaviour is really all about the bully and not about the victim at all. Again, according to www. bullying.org most bullies come from an unhappy place. “People who bully are often scared about some-

thing about themselves, so they try to scare others to hide their feelings or pick on others so they won’t get picked on first. People who bully are unhappy and they take out their unhappiness on others,” the bullying website says. Kids should know when it’s appropriate to get an adult involved and when to resolve it themselves. If they can, the first line of defence should be to ignore the bully entirely. Bullies are looking for a reaction and sometimes the mere act of showing the bully you’re not bothered by what they say will stop it. Kids should know that not only is it okay to step in when they see someone being bullied, but also they should know that the bullying usually stops within 10 seconds if a peer intervenes. Kids need to know that as far as bullying is concerned, there are no innocent bystanders. If ignoring doesn’t work and other kids don’t intervene, it’s best to tell an adult. It’s important for kids to learn the distinction I first heard from author Barbara Coloroso: telling is for when you want to get someone out of trouble, tattling is when you want to get someone into trouble. Telling an adult should make the world safer for the bullied person. Adults who hear from kids that they’re being bullied have a responsibility to step in and speak up, so the victim is safe and secure.

The Toronto Star news story this week described the Federal Liberals’ new election (expected in 2011) strategy for the budget deficit and the economy. Rhetoric aside, the story highlights the comments of Parliamentary Budget Officer Kevin Page. Among his interesting comments was this: “The slow economy is compounded by Canada’s aging demographics over the next decade. As we look forward beyond five years we are going to be dealing with the aging demogra.” Without knowing all his comments, these sound quite loaded. It is well known that Canada’s population is aging. The proportion of seniors in our population grows annually (in September alone, 23,990 Canadians received OAS benefits for the first time). If this is viewed as a drag on the nation’s economy, then we probably need new thinking, and comprehensive planning. The seniors ain’t going away!

River Road rezoning gets green light City council has approved another rezoning of agricultural to industrial land on River Road, despite the protests of more than 60 property owners in the area. City council agreed Monday to rezone 16540 River Road from agricultural to light industrial. But an agent for the property owner says the rezoning may have been a waste of time and money because restrictions being placed on the property by council will mean the owner’s business plan isn’t viable. Virdi Pacific Holdings had a two-part business plan that included a 20,000square foot kitchen cabinet making plant, plus a refrigerator truck storage business. The city approved the former and nixed the latter, and without the reefer truck storage, the business plan can’t work, says former city councilor Kiichi Kumagai, who represents Virdi. “It will not go forward unless we can change their referral to not allow the

parking of truck trailers,” he told the News. “I can’t get the revenue streams to even pay the taxes.” Virdi is the second property on River Road to get such a rezoning in recent months — a process that has been 10 years in the making. Councillors Sue HalseyBrandt and Evelina HalseyBrandt voted against the rezoning. Evelina Halsey-Brandt said she is not opposed to the rezoning per se but takes issue with the process by which property owners were notified — or rather, the way they weren’t notified — that the rezoning was up for debate at Monday’s public hearing. Only property owners within 50 metres of a property up for rezoning are typically notified by letter of a pending public hearing. While that may be adequate in a more densely population urban area, in the rural area of River Road, it meant only two immediate neighbours were notified by mail, Halsey-Brandt said. Despite the short notice, opponents of the rezon-

ing who were aware of the public hearing managed to get more than 60 people to sign a petition opposing the rezoning. Apart from the general concern about agricultural land being rezoned industrial, some residents opposed the commercial truck storage component of Virdi’s plans. The plans calls for up to 50 reefer trucks using the property as a temporary holding station. The trucks haul produce from the U.S. The produce is then taken to Sea Island where it’s flown to Asia by cargo plane. Keeping produce refrigerated requires running the trucks engines all night long — something that doesn’t sound very environmentally friendly to Halsey-Brandt. “They are there with imported produce running their engines all night long,” she said. “How appropriate is that for agricultural land in Richmond?” In approving the rezoning, council added a restrictive covenant that will forbid Virdi from allowing the property for the storage of

reefer trucks. The only parking allowed on site will be for the parking of employees and customers.

Get into the pink to fight cancer On Thursday, Oct. 28 the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation ask you to Get Pink’d. Show your support for breast cancer awareness and research by wearing something pink and sporting one of the society’s Get Pink’d buttons. “This is our inaugural Get Pink’d! day,” said Maya

Dimapilis, the foundation’s senior manager of community events and retail partnerships. “Get Pink’d! is the only event of its kind in Canada that supports the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, with 100 per cent of the proceeds going toward breast health-related initiatives in B.C. and the Yukon.

Marcelo Dominguez can’t wait to get into the pink next week. So much so, that he’s already sporting his pink shirt in his office this week.

“It’s a simple way to rally coworkers to support a cause that affects so many of us.” Although, huge strides have been made in breast cancer diagnosis and survival rates, women are still losing their lives to this insidious disease — one that affects one in every nine Canadian women in their lifetime. According to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, in 2010 an estimated 23,200 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer (2,800 in B.C.), and about 5,300 will die from it (640 in B.C.). “Early detection is still crucial for survival,” added Dimapilis. “This campaign is another way to increase awareness and funds to help find a cure for a cancer that is dear to our hearts.”

Get Pink’d day invites local companies to wear something pink on Oct. 28 in an effort to support a future without breast cancer. For a minimum $5 donation, staff in offices across Richmond will receive a Get Pink’d button. Locally, you can purchase Get Pink’d buttons for your office at the following businesses: The Richmond News, Blundell Blossoms, Bare Basics Lingerie, Salon Diva, Trail Appliances and realtors at local Sutton Realty offices. (Call a Sutton office to find out where). Or, businesses have until today to sign up for Get Pink’d to ensure buttons are delivered on time.

After finding the right breed comes socializing and training and if the breed was chosen based on what it was bred for. In order to make this educated choice, potential dog owners need to review a dog breed book as there are

more than 400 recognized breeds of dogs and that does not include the new cross breeds that are on the market such as Labradoodles or YorkiePoo’s. All these recognized breeds are classified into seven different groups based on what they were originally bred to do, and on their specific characteristics. For a quick run down on the different groups and what they were initially bred for look online where I describe each group to help potential dog owners understand what they’re getting into.

As a dog trainer here in Richmond, I am ecstatic about Richmond City Council drafting a bylaw that will ban the sale of dogs in storefronts. Aside from these pups possibly coming from puppy mills or being impulse buys, I have another reason for being happy with this ban. A good majority of puppy’s bought from pet stores or backyard breeders (which should be the next ban city council looks into) are sold to people who do not know much about the specific breed of dog that they are purchasing. Many dog owners who purchase from a pet store or a backyard breeder do not understand the specific breeds needs or requirements in terms of socializing, training, exercise or even grooming and often the wrong breed is chosen. Before purchasing a puppy, potential owners should do some research into the various breeds to see what the dog was bred for, how much work it requires, how easy it is to handle as an adult and is it the right breed of dog for their family. A proper dog breeder “interviews” potential owners as do our shelters to find out if the breed and family would be a good match. Pet stores don’t do this: a sale is a sale. Perhaps if it is a bit tougher to get dogs this will force more people to go to reputable breeders or our shelters where they will find

You Auto Know is a feature that examines autorelated trivia. Did you know ... the Chevrolet Suburban turns 75 years old this year. The American icon made its debut in 1935 and has become the first vehicle ever to reach 75 years of production. Chevrolet is commemorating the milestone with a special 2010 75th Anniversary Diamond Edition model. Only 2,750 of these will be made. The original Suburban could seat eight passengers, while the current model can hold up to nine. Bodywork for early hauling/cargo/passenger vehicles that inspired the Suburban often consisted of wood sides and canvas tops. While they were versa-

tile, their car-based chassis and damage-prone bodies were compromises. Chevrolet began experimenting with an all-steel wagon body mounted on a commercial chassis in the mid-1930s, and the Suburban Carryall was launched in 1935. The base price of the original eight-passenger Suburban was about $675, or the equivalent of about $10,900 in 2010 dollars and a radio, heater, clock and even a rear bumper were extra-cost options. In the HBO TV series The Sopranos, lead character Tony Soprano is often seen driving around in a maroon Suburban. Suburbans have also been popular as limos, police and paramedic vehicles, as well as with the U.S. CIA and

Secret Service. Meanwhile, this year, Porsche celebrates 60 years in North America and is marking the milestone by trying to find the oldest Porsche in the U.S. Porsche began in the U.S. with just one model — the legendary 356 — and now has more than 30 variants. The first three 356s arrived on American soil in 1950. Porsche began promoting “vacation delivery” in 1982: A customer would order a Porsche in the United States, take delivery in Europe, drive around the continent and return the car to the factory to have it shipped home. Porsche introduced its driver and passenger air bag passive restraint system on the U.S.-destined 1987 944.

In 1992, it took 125 hours to build a Porsche 911. By 1994, the factory was down to 80 hours, thus reducing the cost of the cars. The Porsche 928 in the film Risky Business was actually a total of four cars ranging in years from 1979 to 1981. Each car had different options such as interior colours, wheel designs and even paint colours. The production crew had to be very careful about which part of the cars they filmed to make it look like only one vehicle was used in the movie. The correct pronunciation of Porsche is “Porscheh.” Hey, we’re just the messengers. This came straight from the source. — National Post, with files from automakers

SAFETY

Driving through the danger

Hydroplaning Hydroplaning occurs when water on the roadway accumulates in front of a vehicle’s tires faster than the weight of the vehicle can push it out of the way. The water pressure can push the vehicle up on a thin layer of water, essentially breaking the tires’ contact with the road. In a matter of seconds, a driver can lose control and end up swerving out of his or her lane. Preventing hydroplaning: Keep tires well maintained. Worn-out tread can contrib-

ute to hydroplaning, as can inadequately inflated tires. Certain tread patterns are more capable of diverting water away from the tires. Ask a professional about which tire tread to choose. Next, realize that the higher the speed, the higher the propensity to hydroplane. Should hydroplaning occur, let off the gas and do not apply the brake or turn the wheels. Once the car slows down and retains traction once more, steer and brake accordingly.

Ice While some ice can be detected on the roadway, thin sheets of ice that blend in with the asphalt are known as “black ice.” Black ice can be undetectable until a car begins to skid. It is important to make some modifications to a vehicle if driving on ice will be commonplace this season.

At the least, proper tire inflation is important to maintain traction. Tires should also be checked for tread, as bald tires will do little to grip the road. Individuals who want even more protection should consider switching to snow tires for the winter. These tires are made from a softer rubber so they can better grip the road. Reducing speed is also helpful.

Heavy snow Driving in snow is different from driving on ice, but they share some similarities. The best advice for driving in snow is to assess the situation. If it is falling heavily, it can be safer to stay home. If you must drive, reduce speed and leave a very large buffer zone between vehicles to allow for emergency stopping. When approaching intersections or stop signs, begin braking early.

10226740

Individuals who live in areas of the country where the temperature and weather changes throughout the seasons have to adapt their driving to meet the road conditions. Weather-related accidents are some of the most prevalent, but can be largely prevented if the proper driving techniques are followed.

People love their pets and often bring their cats or dogs along on errands and road trips. But well-meaning pet owners could be putting their companion at risk. While many pet owners know not to keep their dog or cat locked in a car with the windows shut even for a

short duration of time, there are other â&#x20AC;&#x153;dontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? when pets are taken on the road. 1. Riding in the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat: A pet in a driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lap could inadvertently hit the gear shift, distract the driver, end up under the accelerator or brake, or attempt to lunge out of an open window. 2. Driving without a seat belt: Just as people should buckle up, so should pets. The safest manner of travel

is to have the pet in a carrier that is secured in the car. For larger dogs, a harness that keeps the dog seated in the backseat is ideal. Some drivers also prefer a pet barrier that is installed in the rear area of an SUV. 3. Riding in the truck bed: Pickup truck drivers may think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine to have their pooch ride in the open air of the truck bed. However, a dog may chase after an ani-

mal on the side of the road, attempting to leap out while the vehicle is in motion. A leashed dog may end up becoming hanged or dragged behind the truck. 4. Riding with face out the window: All it takes is one small stone or some other debris to end up in a petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face to blind him or her. Plus, rushing wind can damage a petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sensitive eardrums.

WHAT IS THE ELECTRONICS STEWARDSHIP ASSOCIATION OF BRITISH COLUMBIA (ESABC) PROGRAM? ESABC is a not-for-profit extended producer responsibility program set up by the producers and retailers of electronics in British Columbia to provide a province wide recycling system for unwanted electronics.

ISN’T IT IMPORTANT TO REUSE BEFORE RECYCLING? While the program is designed to manage unwanted electronic products that have exhausted their reuse potential, we strongly encourage users to first reuse their products. If you choose to donate to a charity, make sure you have backed up your data and wiped your drives clean prior to donation.

WHAT ARE THE ACCEPTABLE ELECTRONIC ITEMS INCLUDED IN THE PROGRAM? Effective July 1, 2010, the following items can be recycled free of charge at any Encorp Return-It Electronics™ Collection Site: display devices, desktop computers, portable computers, computer peripherals, computer scanners, printers and fax machines, non-cellular phones and answering machines, vehicle audio and video systems (aftermarket), home audio and video systems, and personal or portable audio and video systems.

Electronics collected for recycling are sent to approved primary recyclers in North America. They are broken down using various manual and mechanical processes. Products are separated into their individual components for recovery. Through a variety of refining and smelting processes, the materials reclaimed from unwanted electronics are used as raw materials in the manufacturing of new products.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections

Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of mystery, of psychological, financial and sexual depths awaits you. You might be “tied to” another’s finances, might invest, or take on a mortgage or other large debt. The end result will be a change in your lifestyle. This change might occur through other avenues also: health adjustments, sexual involvements (or pregnancy) etc. It’s a time of commitment and consequence. It’s also, to some degree, a time of karma – I hope you’ve been good! Research, intuition and subconscious promptings aid you. Chase money, shop early Sunday. Thursday to Saturday are sexy, romantic! Taurus April 20-May 20: The weeks ahead feature relationships – of all stripes, from marriage and business partnerships, to agreements, contracts, negotiations, dealings with the public, and the bevy of new relationships that relocation would entail. You are no longer (as in recent weeks) meeting friction and challenge from others. Now forward (to January) most dealings and links become unusually affectionate and gracious. Everyone wants to please – you included! It’s likely that a former bond, an “ex” or a former opportunity (relocation, business, public dealings, etc.) will loom large. Talk it up, Thursday. Gemini May 21-June 20: The next few weeks bring drudgery, chores, health concerns, machinery repairs/purchases and increased dependents’ needs. All these detracted from the pleasures of the last few weeks. So now the cosmos balances: during this “drudgery month” your chores will tend to be light and enjoyable, co-workers will be affectionate (or at least nice), dependents reward you and your health will improve...unless you have a sugar-related problem – e.g., diabetes. (If so, be vigilant through January.) Relationships grow fiery yet hopeful. Love could arise from an argument (and vice versa).

Cancer June 21-July 22: The month ahead features romance, pleasure, speculation, creativity, beauty and charming kids. You’ll ride a winning streak! These enjoyable matters were sprinkled through September and October, but now they flower more fully. A contentious, intense tone yields to a softer, affectionate “dalliance” atmosphere. An old flame might appear, if he/she has not already done so in the last two weeks. Sunday’s for fun, social delights. Retreat to rest, plan Monday/Tuesday. Your energy, magnetism and effectiveness soar Wednesday p.m. to Friday – go out, NOT within! Money caution Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks ahead revolve around home, kids, property, security, soul, nutrition and Mother Nature. The friction that sandpapered these areas in recent weeks will fade – for two years. Now to January, affection fills your home. You’ll be charmed and charming! It’s a splendid time to decorate, vacation, take the kids to the pumpkin patch, etc. If you’re single, a romantic streak begins to wind through your days. If married, the boudoir brightens. If parenting, be gentle – you might push sports, adventure, too hard. Be ambitious Sunday. Happiness, hopes, plans and popularity Monday/ Tuesday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Communications, paperwork, details, errands, short trips, siblings and casual acquaintances fill the weeks ahead. Much of this continues September/October’s trends, but in bigger, luckier ways. The focus of communications changes from sex, finances, mutual property, big changes, power plays, secrets, to something lighter, more gracious: affection/sensuality, earnings instead of assets, compromise instead of power plays, etc. Less is at stake, and that buoys your heart! Still, you’ll be short-tempered on the home front to early December: make peace! Social joys Wednesday-Friday!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Chase money during the weeks ahead. Buy/sell, cultivate new clients, seek a pay raise, etc. Also focus on, and complete, major tasks or health fixes. Putting them off would interfere with the lucky opportunities and relationship potentials of 2011. To late January, your work scene features intensity, longer hours and creativity – it’s one of the more interesting things in your life, until 2011.“Heavy” money issues enter Sunday (mortgage, investment, etc.) – be calm, even passive. Wisdom, gentle love early week. Ambitious wishes furthered Thursday/Friday, not before. A happy weekend! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Weariness ends – your energy, charisma and effectiveness rise – especially in money areas. For the next six weeks, increased money will come from work or health events, perhaps from overtime hours, sales. Though more money comes, strictly beware a simultaneous, unconscious need to overspend. You could purchase machinery or repairs – haggle, go slow, don’t “spend automatically.” A relationship puzzles you Sunday (perhaps because it’s going to end soon). Mysteries, hidden “treasure,” sexual lures fill Monday/Tuesday. Sweet, gentle love Wednesday-Friday. Be ambitious Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Rest through late November. Contemplate, plan, be charitable and spiritual, connect with institutions, government agencies. All these proceed splendidly, but other, more hectic pursuits meet headwinds, mainly because your energy and charisma are low. People don’t want to follow your lead right now. This could be a problem, because you’re feeling more determined, assertive and impatient than usual. Dicey combination! Turn that drive into creative pursuits. Indulge yourself with a little pleasure to defuse your ferocity. Valuable secrets surface Wednesday-Friday – pounce Thursday p.m.!

Oct. 24 - Oct. 30 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A month of happiness stretches before you! Your popularity will rise. Social delights, optimism, bright future plans and group activities await. A light flirtation could occur – it could be more than that if you meet in a group. Sunday accents romance.Tackle chores Monday to Wednesday morning. Relationships loom large Wednesday noon to Friday eve. There’s a disappointment or obstacle here Thursday morning, but otherwise these few days offer success in negotiations, agreements, love, partnerships, meeting or serving the public. Be open, other-oriented and eager! Mysteries, Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead luckily feature ambition, career, prestige relationships and your reputation. Climb the ladder, boost your position in the world! Bosses, parents and higher-ups will (by Thursday onward) drop the impatience and temperament of the last two months.They will strongly favour you now into next January: you’ll be surprised at how graciously you and your proposals are received. Travel and socializing issue a siren song for six weeks – enjoy, but don’t be overly distracted. Romance, creative urges and pleasure call you Monday/Tuesday. Tackle work after Thursday morning, not before. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Understanding replaces mystery, light replaces dark, a philosophical attitude supplants lust.You grow more calm and compassionate. You see your future more clearly, making this and the next few weeks a splendid time to make life-affecting decisions. You might wed, or meet an important love, in the few months ahead. Travel, read, communicate Sunday. Be near home or in contact with family – or pursue security, property goals – Monday/Tuesday. Romance, a creative surge or speculative urge comes Wednesday to Friday – it’s a trap to Thursday morning, succeeds after. Chores Saturday! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
