News - A local group is looking to create suicide prevention “gatekeepers” in two local high schools. Students and staff at Glebe Collegiate Institute and West Carleton Secondary School will be the first to benefit from three years of Ontario Trillium Foundation funding in the amount of $183,000. The money will go to the Ottawa’s Community Suicide Prevention Network to provide a high school peer support program.

Suicide prevention guide a lifeline for parents, youth Continued from page 1

TICO#50007364

The goal is to build schools’ capacities to address mental health concerns and prevent suicides. The network will tackle that goal in three different ways. “It’s about building shepherds, not necessarily identifying weaknesses,” said Joanne Lowe, executive director of the Youth Services Bureau and co-chairwoman of the suicide prevention network. Young people are talking to each other about mental health issues and suicide, so arming them with useful information on how to react and how to connect their peers with resources is critical, Law said. First, the program will involve youth leaders in schools by training them to deliver mental-health programming to fellow students with a special focus on inclusion for gay, lesbian, bisexual, two-spirited and questioning students. Young people will also have access to Source of Strength training, which provides instruction for student leaders on how to engage and connect

with their social networks to promote the idea of seeking help and link their peers with caring adults. The training teaches young people how to see their challenges through a lens of awareness of the resources that are available to them when things get tough. “It’s an amazing, evidencebased program,” Lowe said. “It’s to build resilience within the school staff and a sense of acceptance for diversity within the schools. “It’s going to open a lot of doors,” she said. At the same time, the initiative will provide safeTALK training all staff members at the schools, as well as young people and parents. The training helps people assess suicide risk; make referrals to appropriate resources; and build awareness about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues and the effects of homophobia. The programming will eventually be offered to six Ottawa schools over the next three years, but it will get underway at the Glebe and West Carleton high schools in the

new year. A total of 2,511 students and 192 staff at both schools will take part in the program in 2014. Combining all three of those approaches will create a powerful effect of awareness in schools, said France Thibault, principal at the Glebe school. While many of her staff already has safeTALK training, the new program will make that education and those values universal. “The teachers are very excited to take it,” Thibault said. “They want to help kids,” added Reg Lavergne, principal at West Carleton Secondary School. The project is particu-

larly exciting for schools and school boards because it will strengthen their connections to community partners, Lavergne said. SUICIDE PREVENTION REPORT CARD

The Community Suicide Prevention Network got underway in 2010 and this year marked the first time it provided a report on its activities. With a simple goal of preventing suicides in the community, the network brings together a number of local groups to build awareness and capacity to tackle suicide. The network held Ottawa’s

first summit on youth suicide in February of 2012 to support recognition of what members of the community can do to respond to young people in mental health crisis. A suicide prevention day was also declared on Sept. 10. The network also produced a guide called Know What To Do, which discusses how to react and offer help when a young person is having suicidal thoughts. The guide is available by calling 613-7290577 ext. 1252 and the information is also posted at facebook.com/preventingsuicide. A “lifeline” for parents and families was also set up. Offered 20 hours a week, the

service provides access to “family navigators” who can consult with families that don’t know where to turn in a mental health crisis. The Parents’ Lifelines of Eastern Ontario can be contacted at pleo.on.ca or by calling 613-321-3211. Mental health resources:

• Youth 24/7 crisis line: 613-260-2360 • Crisis line for adults aged 16+: 613-722-6914 If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, attend the emergency room of any local hospital.

Holiday tattoos include Rudolf and candy cane heart Continued from page 1

The shop’s tattoo artist Jamie Kleinveld created the event in an effort to raise money for the Christmas Exchange Program, a program through the Caring and Sharing Exchange. “I think when it comes to charity, every little bit helps,” Kleinveld said. “It’s nice to give back to the community. They don’t take long to do and it feels good to help out.” This is not the first time the parlour has contributed to the community at Christmas time. Last year, Kleinveld offered a similar holiday tattoo promotion, with money raised being donated to Toy Mountain. In November, the tattoo artist inked seven tiny moustaches on Ottawa bodies to help raise money for prostate cancer. “For me, it’s a way to create art,” she said. “It’s not just about donating money to a cause. Like most tattoos, it can also help people commemorate something in their life too.” The themed tattoos include a snowman, Rudolf, a gingerbread man, a candy cane heart and a stocking. Kleinveld said her favourite is the candy cane heart. “I tried to include some images that were festive but still common enough that some people who might hesitate to get a Christmas tattoo would be able to enjoy as well, such as the dove, the snowflake and the bow,” she said. Kleinveld was this year’s winner of the organization’ s annual Christmas Exchange Ornament contest and said the idea for the fundraiser came out of that. “I think the ornament turned out beautiful,” Kleinveld said. “It’s really neat to see something I drew on paper turn into a real product, and I am glad I could be part of such a neat project.” The ornaments are available at Hallmark Davis Agency stores for $25, and feature copper which once covered the roof of the Parliament Buildings from 1918 to 1996. The Caring and Sharing Exchange began in 1915 as the Christmas Ex-

change program, offering both food hampers and Giant Tiger gift cards to low-income families as well as offering co-ordination for the many social service organizations and programs in the city, including co-ordinating giftgiving for the Salvation Army’s Toy Mountain. Last year, more than 23,000 people in Ottawa asked for assistance, with 10,502 people receiving help. According to Caring and Sharing’s executive director, Cindy Smith, the need is great to ensure families receive assistance. “Last year, despite the generosity of the Ottawa community, we were unable to meet the need, leaving more than half to go without,” Smith said. “This year things are looking better, but we still have a large waiting list at this time.” The small tattoos, Kleinveld said, won’t take up much of her time, allowing all the proceeds of the fundraiser to go to the program.

Living Colour Tattoo parlour in the ByWard Market will be offering up festive permanent tattoos this season to help out the Caring and Sharing Exchange. Submitted

Planning committee OKs tallest pre-zoned buildings Lees station could see up to 45 storeys for transit-oriented development Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city has paved the way for some of Ottawa’s tallest buildings to crop up around the future Lees light-rail station.

A limited number of towers up to 45 storeys and a larger number of 30-storey towers should be allowed to be built in that area, the city’s planning committee decided on Dec. 10. The committee gave its approval

for high density land-use plans intended to promote ridership on the LRT line the city is building around Lees, Hurdman and Blair stations. Right now, those areas have about a quarter of the amount of residences and jobs the city expects them to

have more than 20 years from now. Currently, the areas have an average of about 50 residents or jobs per hectare. By 2031, the city expects that number to jump to 125 residents/jobs per hectare. But that still won’t put the density in the “transit supportable” range, said city planner Chris Brouwer. The areas would each need densities more like 340 residents/jobs per hectare to support the transit system in the long term, he said, and that won’t happen for a long time. What do all those numbers mean to residents who already live in the area? “We are putting the equivalent of a new Brockville into Old Ottawa East,” said the local community association president, John Dance. The community supports transitoriented development, he said, and it appreciates the transformation that will be coming to the area over the long term. But there needs to be more fine-grained thinking in order to make it work, he said. For one thing, the transit-oriented development plan for Lees includes a four-lane elevated Alta Vista parkway – a future road the community has bitterly fought. The route was pushed out of the city’s long-term affordability plan in the recently approved transportation master plan, meaning it won’t be constructed until sometime after 2031. But the transit-oriented development plan has to show that road because it’s still on the city’s books, and it just destroys the whole high-density transit-focused vision, Dance said. “It’s not conducive to what you want to do with this plan,” he said. “I know that some of you are really keen on putting a ‘highway’ through there, frankly, it’s not compatible.” Brouwer said the transit-oriented development plan stands on its own, with or without the Alta Vista parkway. That road would mostly serve motorists from outside the community, while most of the new residents who would move into the high-density area would be expected to take transit, walk or bike to their destinations. Coun. David Chernushenko, whose Capital Ward includes much of the Lees plan area in Old Ottawa East, said he sees the Alta Vista corridor as an opportunity for a future bridge and main street that could support the community – not an elevated roadway. Dance said the city needs to plan now for community spaces, services for residents and for green space and

parks in the area. Chernushenko agreed that ensuring there will be community space and parks for all those new residents will be critical. A couple homeowners in Robinson village – the very south end of Sandy Hill, closest to the Lees station – came to the committee to ask for more lenient zoning to be applied to their properties. Although it wasn’t mentioned, the upzoning would almost certainly make their property values skyrocket. Doug Biesenthal asked why his property and those around it would only get an increase from four to six storeys, in view of the 30-plus storey towers to be allowed at Lees station. Brouwer said city planners were satisfied with the density that could be built in the village without the need to go any higher. Proximity to transit was only one factor considered when looking at what building heights to zone for, he said. Good urban design was another factor. Committee vice chairwoman Coun. Jan Harder said all submissions the city received on the plans, including those from pro-development residents in Robinson village, will be considered before the plans are given council’s final approval on Jan. 22, 2014. Although transit-oriented development plans for Hurdman and Blair stations did not receive the same scrutiny as the Lees plan, they also got planning committee’s nod on Dec. 10. No members of the public signed up to speak about those two plans. Plans for development around Hurdman would mostly allow buildings in the 20-storey range to fill in what is now National Capital Commission greenspace. Lands north of the future light-rail line would likely be developed first, said city planner Cheryl Brouillard. That’s because lands farther to the south, where there is currently a hill, is an old landfill that would have to be cleaned up before development could occur. Plans for the area around Blair Station won’t change too much because the major land owner - the Gloucester Centre mall - is not planning any big moves, said city planner Peter Giles. The plan would encourage more residential development to be incorporated into the area around Blair and Ogilvie roads, but it would remain zoned mostly for mixeduse: commercial and residential buildings.

Feds slam door on mail delivery

T

he announcement that Canada Post will end home mail delivery in the next five years is the beginning of the end for mail service in this country. Reduced service and a higher cost is a death knell for any company. The cutbacks will no doubt be a self-fulfilling prophecy as cuts to service in turn cut into the current level of demand. Maybe the real plan is to sell off Canada Post. And it’s rather sad that the federal government would announce this just as MP’s leave on their Christmas break, leaving no chance for debate. The change will mean a great deal to seniors and folks with any disability that makes a trip to a community mailbox tricky. This will likely be an election issue in the future as seniors take their right to vote very seriously. Beyond delivery of letters, mail carriers do provide social interaction for people who may feel isolated. Carriers can also check in on seniors who live alone, and they act as the eyes of the community because they know residents and can report suspicious people. In the U.S., the postal service is legally required to deliver six days a week. In Britain, the Royal Mail has been privatized, although citizens can still

expect minimum standards will be met. Canada has geographic challenges unlike those countries – greater distances and fewer people and pieces of mail. If the cutting of home delivery is carried out as planned, we may be headed for a private delivery service in the not-too-distant future. If Canada Post has no monopoly, we could see more delivery trucks from competing firms on our streets; not a good deal for the environment when one carrier can do the job. As the price of a stamp goes up and up, eventually those private companies may see their chance. The cost of postage will rise to $1 for an individual stamp next spring, meaning next time the holidays roll around, postage may cost more than the Christmas card inside the envelope. Our federal government is creating conditions for Canada Post’s failure. The die has been cast, so make your voice heard. If home mail delivery is valued by Canadians, why should we not accept that the system may run at a loss? That’s what our tax dollars are for: to deliver basic, important services to all. If you care about home delivery, tell your MP. It might be nice to send your thoughts in a letter. While you still can.

From Canada Post, the last Christmas card

I

t was a nice seasonal touch on Canada Post’s part to tell you that you’ve received your last Christmas card. It was beyond grinchy and a lot of us Whos down in Whoville don’t like it that much. Beginning next year, some five million of us, living in cities, aren’t going to get mail delivery at the door any more. So why would we send Christmas cards to anyone living in cities? And why would any of them send cards to us? True, there is something faintly heartening about never again having to pick up a pen and scrawl 100 or so times that nothing much different happened and hope to see you next year. But that’s not the point, is it? Nor is it the point that this will increase the number of people telling us in electronic greeting cards that nothing much different happened this year. Leaving seasonal aspects aside, the point is that voodoo economics has made victims of us once again. Canada Post has decided, first, that it doesn’t make enough money and, second, that the way to make enough money is to make itself irrelevant. That doesn’t usually work. We have seen this pattern, although less dramatically, in OC Transpo, where the

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town response to economic difficulties has traditionally been to raise the fares and reduce the routes, thus creating a self-fulfilling prophecy of doom. Because Canada Post is selling fewer stamps it proposes to raise the cost of them. See the logic? At least OC Transpo never proposed to eliminate buses altogether. A couple of bad assumptions are at the root of all this. The first is that, in these changing times, door-to-door mail service is no longer needed and that people can happily walk to the community mailbox or whatever it is. Well, some people cannot walk happily anywhere. As we are constantly being reminded, the population of Canada is rapidly aging, providing us with even more people who don’t walk happily. Nice timing, Canada Post.

Orléans News EMC - Thursday, December 19, 2013

As for changing times, they do not affect everyone the same way. Yes, there are people who do all their correspondence and all their bill-playing electronically. Yes there are people whose cheques are deposited automatically. Yes, those people probably don’t need mail delivery at the door. But not everyone is like that, not even in cities. This is where the decision makers make the common mistake of assuming that the people on their street are the same as the people on every street. Just because everyone you know has several computers and WiFi in their homes doesn’t mean everybody else does. Further, even some of the people who are comfortable with computers are not comfortable entrusting their financial dealings to the Internet. That may be an overly cautious view but, heaven knows, years of reading about Internet fraud, identity theft and various other boondoggles has created a healthy skepticism. The second bad assumption is even more profound -- it is that Canada Post has to make a profit. Who says? For many years, the consensus was that if it’s a public service and people need it, there’s no reason it needs to make money. The postal service was like the educational system.

That changed, 30-some-odd years ago, when governments began to be run by people who hated government. Many of today’s big thinkers grew up with Margaret Thatcher’s picture on the wall of their rooms in the fraternity house. If it didn’t make a profit, they learned, it shouldn’t exist. So there goes Canada Post. It will be interesting to see how this is received politically. At first glance, the decision appears to be a gift for opposition parties. They are fighting to see who can be first to stand up for Canada’s seniors. At least in the next election there will be one issue people can understand.

Canada Post trimming the fat, not killing the service

C

anada Post announced this month it will phase out door-to-door delivery in urban centres. Instead, consumers will be forced to collect their mail from a locked box in a centralized location. Many people were up in arms about the announcement, suggesting it was an affront to our democracy, a slight against the elderly and the disabled and an unprecedented move. “Conservatives are destroying Canadians’ long-treasured postal services,” said NDP Transport critic Olivia Chow in a statement. “These jobkilling and service-cutting measures will isolate seniors, the poor and the disabled living in urban areas.” On the one hand, I agree with Chow. I know many seniors who already rely on friends, neighbours and paid services to get their milk, clean their homes and get them to doctors’ appointments. It seems unfortunate that they may have to outsource mail collection as well. She’s wrong about the job killing though. Canada Post will eliminate 8,000 positions in the restructuring, but 15,000 of its employees are slated for retirement in the next five years anyway. Before we get too caught up in ideology, we need to look at the reality. Canada Post – like many of its global counterparts – has been bleeding money for years. In the digital era, the majority of people no longer rely on mail service for routine transactions like bill payments and income cheques. The same is true across the western world.

Yes, we need a postal service. But we don’t need a fat postal service, running on a 20th century business model propped up by our tax dollars. And let’s be clear about one falsehood touted by critics – centralized pick-up for mail is not unprecedented in this country. Many Canadians have never had the privilege of door-to-door service and they’re probably wondering what all us urban foxes are whining about. When I was a kid, my family moved from the city to a small town. It became part of our daily routine to stop by the local post office to collect envelopes from behind lockand-key. Some people didn’t have a box, so they had to time their visits to match post office hours, which in those days was pretty limited. This still represents the reality in small towns across Canada. New housing developments have long been relying on

centralized mailboxes. Those living in condominiums have to go to the main floor of their buildings to see what treasures await them behind lock-and-key. It’s not that big of a stretch to take this precedent into urban centres, especially if the cost-saving measures help us to maintain Canada Post’s status as a Crown corporation. Make no mistake, Canada Post had to cut back or be cut out entirely. Britain’s Royal Mail – with a much longer and richer history than our own postal service – was privatized this year. While it was viewed as an enviable option by some in Ottawa, I personally think it’s crude to privatize what is still, for some, for the moment anyway, an essential service. Taxpayer-funded organizations are not purely about supply-and-demand, revenue and profits; they exist to level the playing field, to fill gaps in private-sector offerings. At the same time, it doesn’t make sense for taxpayers to fund services at last century’s levels for the sake of nostalgia. Canada Post has made a bold decision. But in my mind, it’s a good one. And, at the end of the day, maintaining its status as a leaner Crown corporation, rather than privatizing, will likely serve to protect thousands of unionized jobs in this country.

While you can purchase a brace at a local drugstore or health centre you’re not likely to get a product that will provide you with the support you truly require. If your doctor has recommended a brace for you

condition reviewing any x-rays or MRI’s and examine the joint. They’ll also discuss your lifestyle and your goals, such as getting back to playing golf, hiking or to just reduce pain on an overall daily basis. The clinician then takes measurements to ensure that the brace that will be custom-made fits you correctly and helps stabilize the joint to reduce wear and tear and increase function.

Mother’s memories made her sombre during holidays

M

y sister Audrey, I thought, was the smartest girl at the Northcote

School. And I knew for a fact she was the smartest of us five children. Couldn’t she braid grass, knit dishcloths, do cross-stitch on tea towels, and recite the Lord’s Prayer and the 23rd Psalm without forgetting a word? So that day in December it was my very clever sister Audrey who told me a secret about our mother that I believed with all my heart to be the gospel truth. It also explained why Mother did the things she did on occasion. Audrey said there was a perfectly good reason why Mother’s mind sometimes seemed to be a million miles away around Christmas time. I certainly was aware that her thoughts often seemed to be somewhere else, especially when I asked her a question about our own Christmas which was coming up, an occasion which filled me with great anticipation. The day I asked her if she thought if I wrote a special letter to Santa Claus, and asked him for a pair of white galoshes with real fur down the fronts, just like bad Marguirite had, would I get them? I saw a sadness come over her face. She didn’t answer right away, and when she did, I noticed a catch in her throat, as if she was going to cough, and she said I had to remember that Santa had a long list of children who wanted some things he just couldn’t supply. I knew then, I wouldn’t be seeing the white rubber galoshes with the fur down their fronts. I wasn’t too sure what Mother had to do with Santa’s decision. But I soon understood what my sister meant when she said sometimes our mother’s mind was a million miles away. It was the middle of December. It was time to put up the few decorations we had. There was the braided rope made of thin cardboard loops glued together and strung across the kitchen, corner to corner. There were the two hand-made wreaths for the

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories

frosted kitchen windows, and the big picture of Santa thumb- tacked to the stairwell door. Mother sat and looked at what had been done to try to make the kitchen (the only room in the house warm enough to sit in during the winter), presentable for the holiday season, and she let out a long sigh. Audrey said Mother was remembering the many Christmas decorations she had when she lived in New York, and which she had described to my sister. Things like silver bells for the outside of the door, candlesticks made of pure white wax, and glass holders in the shape of small pine trees for the dining room table. We didn’t even have a dining room on the farm in Northcote. Audrey said this time of year Mother tried, but couldn’t get her Christmases in New York out of her mind. She remembered shopping in Macy’s Department Store, having money to buy just about anything she wanted, glass decorations for the big tree in the parlour, and wrapping paper and ribbon in every colour in the rainbow to wrap the many presents she would buy. After Audrey explained it, I understood that Mother secretly pined for all she had left behind in her beloved New York to come to the backwoods of Renfrew County, where every penny was hard-earned. Instead of going to the city bank for money, Mother went to the blue sugar bowl in the backto-the-wall cupboard to take out a few pennies from her “egg money.” My sister said it was sometimes a sad time for Mother, even though the rest of the family was all caught up in the Christmas spirit out there in Renfrew County. Audrey said I wasn’t to think it was anything I had

done to make mother sad. That made me feel better. Not a lot better, but a little better just the same. Audrey said to me that I was to try to make our mother forget about her life in that far-away city, and it had nothing to do about being good she said. It had everything to do with trying to keep Mother’s mind busy in our home out there in Northcote. I asked Audrey how I could do that, and being clever like she was, my sister had the perfect answer. I was to say often how pretty the kitchen was with its hand-made paper streamers stretched across the room, how I loved the smell of her mincemeat pies, and how I loved going into Renfrew with her when she delivered her wares door to door. That seemed simple enough to me. I like to think it worked, as I took my wise sister’s advice to heart. That year was not unlike any other Christmas on the farm during those lean Depression days. As the day grew closer, Mother’s mood changed. Baking consumed many hours. We five children could hardly contain our excitement. The Christmas concert was ahead of us, the smell of the big pine tree already in the corner of the kitchen filled the room, and there were whispers of secrets not to be shared. There was joy in the house. We would be celebrating the true meaning of Christmas in the Lutheran Church, neighbours would come and go, and we would return their visits. And Mother, for a time, put behind her the memories of another time and another place. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

Feminism is a human rights issue unjustly accused of destroying the family. I agree that the child care and housework is undervalued, but I resent Leslie’s wording. I don’t consider paying a nanny, a cleaner or babysitter to be “outsourcing,” assuming the parents have little connection to the process and outcome. I see childcare and house workers as a part of our labour market, and that we need to lobby and advocate for higher wages for these important roles. Your article, whether you intended or not, would rather see an end to this segment of the workforce, with hundreds and thousands of (women)

the workforce and change our rigid idea of what the family unit is today. Women, who by biological and cultural factures take on the majority of housework and childcare, need to demand better work-life balance and flexible opportunities at work without apology. An evaluation of our childcare system would show how hours do not reflect a typical work day therefore making it difficult for parents to drop and pick up children as they want to. We have to look externally, at our archaic systems in place that do not reflect women in the workforce, instead of the easy critique that women are therefore not doing their caregiving role and are then

To the editor,

Re: “The failure of feminism; destruction of the family,” Column, Dec. 5. In response to Brynna Leslie’s opinion article, I feel compelled to note the enormous disservice she has in fact done to women. I felt like I was reading an article attacking feminism that was commonplace in the ’70s. Leslie’s title has the reader assume that feminism is only a “women’s issue” when in fact it’s a human rights issue. It involves both men and women in seeking equality for all. What we need to look at is how to improve the gross inadequacies in

workers, many of whom have their own families to support, out of a job. You refer to this traditional “nuclear family” as if this is an ideal utopia to strive for. Family households are blended, headed up by same sex couples, and provided for by single mothers among many other family structures. We are in the 21st century and our society needs to adjust to the needs of women, men and our new “nuclear” families. Feminism has given women a choice to work within the home, outside the home, and have opportunities past decades have worked hard to achieve. Women have shaped our economical, political and social sphere because of their position within the labour market. Feminism and the rise of women in the workforce has given financial independence, provided inspiration

and role models for young women, and the freedom to leave abusive relationships. My question to you is, why have you attacked women and left men completely out of the equation? Men need to additionally share the role within the household to make the family unit successful. Men need to support their partners, also have work-life balance in the workforce so they can share childcare responsibilities, and frankly step up to the plate. Men are a part of the feminism discourse, not the poor result of feminism’s destruction, in your own words. Yes Brynna, the laundry does pile up. But it’s up to our politicians, our workforce and partners to help put it in the machine this time. Katie Didyk Ottawa south

Santa Claus to visit Orléans Santa from page 12

I helped a friend because she got sand in her eye and I got the teacher for her. One of my favourite subjects in school is gym because we get good exercise. Some of the few things that I would oke for Christmas would be beenie boos, rubber elastic for rainbow loom and clothes. I really hope your elves are not working too hard that they are way to tired to do

anymore work. I hope you and your wife Mrs Claus will have a greet Christmas. Merry Christmas Charlotte Dear Santa

Hello! How are you? Did you have a good summer? How is Mrs. Claus and all the elves? I hope the reindeer are nice and helthey for the big take off. This year I don’t want much just some books called

rainbow magic, some binnie boos, and lego friends, and the rubber bands to make the braclets. This year I passed two skating dances! I have been good this year but not perfect. Yesterday I made my sisters breakfast. My sisters would probably like some books and iTunes cards. Thank you Santa for all you do. Love Shaeleen

O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see thee lie! Above thy deep and dreamless sleep The silent stars go by; Yet in the dark streets shineth The everlasting Light; The hopes and fears of all the years Are met in thee tonight. For Christ is born of Mary; And gathering all above, While mortals sleep, the angels keep Their watch of wondering love. O morning stars, together Proclaim the holy birth, And praises sing to God the King, And peace to men on earth. How silently how silently, The wonderous gift is given! So God imparts to human hearts The blessings of His heaven. No ear may hear His coming; But in this world of sin, Where meek souls will receive Him, still The dear Christ enters in. O Holy Child of Bethlehem, Descend to us, we pray; Cast out our sin, and enter in; Be born in us today. We hear the Christmas angels The great glad tidings tell; O come to us, abide with us, Our Lord Emmanuel.

TEDDY BEAR TOSS Teddy bears rained onto the ice at the Canadian Tire Centre on Dec. 8 as the Ottawa 67’s took on the Barrie Colts during the annual Teddy Bear Toss game. Fans were encouraged to bring a new or gently used teddy bear to the game, to be thrown onto the ice following a home team goal. The bears were collected and donated to Ottawa charities. Here. Bears litter the ice during a first-period goal by 67’s defenceman Troy Henley.

about your resolution, and tell as many friends about it as possible,” Macdonald said. Lisa Belanger, an exercise physiologist and doctoral candidate at the University of Alberta, says a third tip is to “make an emotional connection to your resolution. Keep reminding yourself the reasons for your actions to keep you going. For example, ‘I am going to the gym to stay active and keep up with my grandchildren.’ Or ‘I’m eating more vegetables to avoid getting heart disease like my mother.’ Although it is unlikely Plato was referring to New Year’s fitness resolutions, his statement offers perspective. Base your good decision to become healthier on knowledge rather than shying away because of intimidating numbers.

Lifestyle - As the calendar flips to a new year and we wave goodbye to 2012, many Canadians will use the celebration to make a personal resolution and, hopefully, wave goodbye to old habits. When it comes to predicting the success of these personal promises, a 2012 study at the University of Scranton indicates this will be challenging for most Canadians. The study discovered the top resolution is to lose weight and/or make a healthy self-improvement. And, out of the 45 percent of people who make a New Year’s resolution, only eight per cent will fully accomplish it—with 39 percent of people experiencing “infrequent success.” But that doesn’t mean you should return the workout clothes you received for Christmas or cancel the recently purchased gym membership.

Ottawa businesses seek relief on hydro rates Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Ottawa businesses are asking for relief from rising hydro rates this Christmas. Following a meeting of the Ottawa Council of Business Improvement Areas on Dec. 12, Alex Lewis, who heads up the Bells Corners BIA and Lori Mellor, who is the executive director of the Preston Street BIA, presented Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli’s constituency office with a letter demanding a moratorium on rising rates until a study can be done to look at the impacts on small-and medium-sized enterprises. “This is quick turnaround for us,” Mellor said of the letter. “But the council only meets quarterly. Once we had identified this as a concern, we wanted to present something to the legislature before it breaks until February.” The council represents 18 Ottawa-area BIAs, which, according to the letter, represents $4.5 billion in tax dollars. The letter was presented to Chiarelli and Premier Kathleen Wynne. The concerns addressed in are largely in response to the release of the province’s long-term energy plan on Dec. 2, Lewis said. The plan mapped out the chosen generation methods for the province’s energy requirements while forecasting how that generation will impact rates going forward. Rates are forecast to increase 42 per cent by 2018, a figure which includes the scheduled removal of the 10 per cent Ontario clean energy benefit. That will mean an increase from $125 to $178 per month for the average household by 2018. The monthly average would rise to $210 monthly by the end of plan’s time frame in 2032. Of particular concern for Lewis was the extra cost for global adjustment, which is the cost for producing of all the kinds of energy that make their way into the grid. It fluctuates, along with the market price. “We are worried that your government’s increase of 42 per cent over the next five years, coupled with excessive global adjustment and debt retirement charges, will work against the very progress that orga-

nizations like Ottawa BIAs have worked so diligently towards,” the letter reads. Lewis said he hoped Chiarelli would listen to the concerns of businesses in his riding and across the city. Chiarelli wasn’t immediately available for comment. “The rising costs of electricity are crippling to small businesses,” Lewis said. Ottawa businessman Jim Sourges, chair of the Bells Corners BIA and owner of the Electrical and Plumbing Store, said time-of-use rates have been costly for businesses that can’t control their usage because of their hours of operation. For his Northside Road location in Bells Corners, Sourges estimated that his electricity bill has risen by $1,500 per month over the last five years. Lisa MacLeod, energy critic and MPP for Nepean-Carleton, asked the Premier about rising rates during question period at Queen’s Park on Dec. 10. MacLeod said she had met with owners and investors in the agrifood sector in Southwestern Ontario. “The owners and investors have indicated they if they don’t get their energy prices under control as a result of your mismanagement of that sector they’re going to have to leave Ontario,” MacLeod said. “That’s 400 jobs.” MacLeod added that the business she spoke with paid $60,000 in January for the global adjustment on their bill – by September that amount was at $100,000. “Does the Premier think its fair for a business in Ontario to be paying $1 million towards the global adjustment when they are struggling to survive?” MacLeod asked. MacLeod said she hasn’t received an answer yet from the government about what they are going to do to reign in rates. She said the increased energy costs will mean higher costs for food production. “It’s going to make things more expensive, either because food producers will pass along their increased operating costs or they will move out of province and we will have to pay more for transport,” she said. MacLeod cited the auditor general’s report that named high salaries and pensions at Ontario Power

Generation as some of the factors in rising costs. She said she planned to bring up the letter from the Ottawa council of BIAs during the Dec. 12 question period. “Residents are essentially subsidizes pensions they could never dream of through their hydro bill,” MacLeod said. “Someone has to take responsibility for that.” In question period Wynne said the govern-

ment’s long-term energy plan takes costs out of the system and focuses on conservation. She said PC leader Tim Hudak doesn’t have any plans to lower the costs of electricity. “We came into office in 2003 and we have been cleaning up the energy mess that was left by that party since that day and we will continue to do so,” Wynne said. The council of BIAs is

asking the province to put a moratorium on rising hydro rates until such time as a study can be done on the impact to small business. Lewis said small businesses makes up 97 per cent of all businesses in Ontario and are important drivers of job creation and economic growth. With files from Steph Willems

News - Crossroads Children’s Centre is the calm in the centre of a storm. The light blue and yellow hues of the centre’s therapy and free play rooms is meant to be inviting so clients can share their stories. The centre, which is on Courtwood Crescent, off of Maitland Avenue, was founded in 1995. It helps children under the age of 12 who have been in contact with the city’s police or fire services and hopes to turn them around before they end up permanently in the system. Take the story of Steven, a pseudonym given to a case child and youth worker Shannon Mullen is currently working with. The name has been changed to protect his identity. Steven was referred to the centre’s arson prevention, or TAPP-C program, through his school’s resource officer. Stephen had engaged in anti-social behaviours both at school and at home. Jennifer McIntosh/Metroland “He was defiant, and there Shannon Mullen, left, a child and youth worker with Crossroads Childrens Centre plays foosball with executive director was some stealing,” Mullen Michael Hone in one of the centre’s therapy rooms. said. “He wasn’t feeling sup- “And he needed to be com- off, society as a whole needs and Youth Services.

Those figures are based on the organizations work with 50 clients. “We measure the results and set goals for the outcomes as a result of the intervention,” Hone said. It’s a collaborative approach. “I often accompany the parents into the schools to discuss how we can best accommodate the children for success there,” Mullen said. Mullen also looks to other community organizations to work with the family on related issues. While the environment for Steven is much improved, he will need to continue therapy, something Mullen said is currently being set up. “It’s never perfect, but now when conflicts arise, the family is better equipped to deal with them,” Mullen said. For clients with fire-setting behaviours, Hone said a representative from fire services talks with the kids about safety and makes sure all the alarms in the home are functional and the family has a fire evacuation plan. Hone says without the help of the United Way, Crossroads wouldn’t be able to do the work they do. “It’s good to have a funding partner that’s open minded in the context of mental health,” he said. Along with the TAPP-C program, Crossroads also has a walk-in mental health clinic and a community-based family support program. For more information, visit www.crossroadschildren.ca.

Scots invite city to traditional New Year celebration Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - People from across Ottawa are invited to get a little Hogmanay-wild at city hall to celebrate the arrival of 2014. TD Hogmanay ’13 is a free Scottish-styled New Year’s Eve party taking place at city hall, starting at 6 p.m. The event, complete with haggis, whisky and a whole lot of Scottish music and dancing, promises to offer a good time for the whole family. “We wanted to bring a flavour of modern Scotland to Ottawa,” organizer John Ivison said of last year’s inaugural event. “People really took to it.” Back again this year, the volunteer-driven event is aiming to surpass the 7,500 people who took part last year, Ivison said.. The party kicks off with a social gathering complete with dancing and music, Scotch tasting and skating at the Rink of Dreams. Back by popular demand, there will also be Braveheart face-painting. “This is a unique opportunity for Canadians of all back-

grounds to come together in a moment of fun and celebration – in both typical Canadian and Scottish style,” said Kevin MacLeod, chairman of the Scottish Society. The evening will include a Scotland time zone countdown at 7 p.m., and it wouldn’t be a Scots New Year celebration without a little fire, so at midnight, fireworks will light up the sky over city hall. Scottish folk-rock legends Wolfstone, local band Ecosse and a Celtic band from Hamilton, Ont., Poor Angus, will each perform during the night. Fiona Hyslop, cabinet secretary for culture and external affairs with the Scottish government, said Scotland and Canada have strong links reaching back through history and these bonds continue to grow and thrive today. “This Hogmanay event will help celebrate our shared history and recognize Scotland’s achievements and ambitions in the 21st century,” Hyslop said. OC Transpo service will be free after 8 p.m. and parking at City Hall is also available for free, making it easy to make the trip downtown for the event.

Infiniti Rakes in Awards by Brian Turner

Recently, at the Los Angeles Auto Show, industry giant AOL Autos announced it selected Infiniti’s Backup Collision Intervention (BCI) as a finalist for its 2013 Technology of the Year Award. Available on Infiniti’s QX60 and QX60 Hybrid luxury crossover, BCI is an advanced active safety system that can detect objects the driver may miss when backing up and even apply the brakes momentarily to get the drivers attention. AOL Autos’ annual Technology of the Year award recognizes vehicle manufacturers from around the world who have elevated the industry by incorporating technology into their vehicles that advance the connectivity, telematics, active safety and fuel economy of cars and trucks on the road today. Following an online popular vote at AOL Auto’s website (completed as of this date), this year’s winner will be announced at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January. But that’s not all for Infiniti’s flagship crossover. For eight years, IntelliChoice.com and AutoPacific.com have teamed up for the annual Motorist Choice Awards, recognizing vehicles that marry both high consumer satisfaction and outstanding ownership value over time. This year, IntelliChoice recognized the Infiniti QX60 twice, as the premium segment winner in both the “People Mover” and “Kid Friendly” categories. Each year, AutoPacific polls more

than 50,000 new vehicle buyers on 48 key attributes, determining overall buyer satisfaction with their purchase. Concurrently, IntelliChoice monitors cost of ownership metrics for more than 2,000 different models and trim lines to compile a holistic view of what a car might cost over a five year period. Results from both AutoPacific and IntelliChoice are aggregated into one analysis that recognizes vehicles scoring high in both categories, The Motorist Choice Awards.

Not to be outdone by its bigger cousin, the QX50 took a major award recently. Kelley Blue Book (kbb.com) recognized Infiniti’s QX50 in the highly competitive Luxury Compact SUV/Crossover class as having the best resale value among its peers, citing it offers an “intriguing combination of sportiness, sophistication and practicality.” Infiniti’s Q30 Concept, the next step in Infiniti’s strategy to expand into new premium segments, made its North American debut recently in Los Angeles. The sleek, seductive Q30 Concept is the design vision for a compact Infiniti vehicle with a contemporary, individualized character for a new generation of premium customers. The compact premium segment is forecast for significant growth with the entry of young-minded affluent customers. “The Infiniti Q30 Concept is highly predictive of a new head-turning premium compact that we will launch in early

2015,” said Michael Bartsch, vicepresident, Infiniti Americas. “It is the perfect addition to our current portfolio of advanced sports sedans and coupes, luxury performance crossovers and full-size SUVs.” “The Q30 Concept has a compact footprint geared to the global trend of younger customers entering the premium sector in search of a product that suits their urban lifestyle,” added Bartsch. “The concept’s vision is to be the alternative to the practicality and conformity in the compact car segment.” The shape of the Infiniti Q30 Concept deliberately challenges convention – fusing the dynamic design and sportiness of a coupe, the roominess of a hatchback and the higher stance and visual presence of a crossover. Infiniti designers were given the freedom to explore seductive alternatives to traditional premium automobile brands. “Research among the new generation of buyers - with Gen X and Gen Y soon to represent 80 percent of the market - shows an increasing rejection of traditional notions toward premium cars,” said Bartsch. “These buyers are less willing to connect size, presence and high-output power as key ingredients of the premium product. Rather, they’re looking more for balance, great design and outstanding execution.” R0012368132

Ottawa West and Bells Corners residents know a valued institution when they find one, and Cooley Automotive fits that description to a tee. First opened by father, Jim Cooley Sr. in 1978 and now operated by son Mike, his family, and team, Cooley Automotive has been providing a complete level of maintenance and repairs for domestic and imported vehicles alike. From routine oil and tire changes to wheel alignments and computerized engine and electronic system diagnoses and everything in between, Mike and his team handle it with care and confidence and at prices that leave their customers smiling. Just as important as what Cooley Automotive offers is what they don’t. You’ll never be sold or recommended work or services that aren’t required; you’ll never get a 5:00 o’clock surprise when you come to pick up your vehicle only to be told it isn’t ready and/or will cost more than the estimate.

Instead Mike, Jenn, Jim, Sean, and Kirk will take the time to explain in understandable terms, exactly what needs to be done, how much it’s going to cost, and when it will be ready. When a customer drives off after picking up their car at Cooley’s, the shop’s reputation rides with them and they don’t leave anything to chance. That’s why in the sometimes difficult world of automotive repairs, Cooley Automotive stands out with a Better Business Bureau A+ rating. Cooley’s is open Monday to Friday from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm and keeps unheard-of Saturday hours by appointment. If you want to know what it’s like to deal with a repair provider who looks out for your interests call Cooley’s at 613 829 2057 or log onto

City to study pawn shop regulations Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Ottawa is taking another look at whether it should license pawnbrokers. That option will be on the table as city staff study how effective the provincial pawnbroker legislation is – and how well the city is administering it compared to other municipalities. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, who brought forward the issue, said the Pawnbrokers Act is outdated, making it difficult for the city to enforce. Part of the problem is that privacy legislation prevents the city from looking through a pawn shop’s records, even if the shop is found to have knowingly or unknowingly sold a stolen item. “They can only look item through item based on complaints due to privacy,” Fleury said. “We’re not allowing our enforcement bodies to be able to enforce these books.” Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes said the system worked better when

the city had a policy to collect identification information from people who sell items to pawnbrokers. In 2007, the city received an order from the provincial privacy commissioner to stop collecting that information from “secondhand goods sellers,” but city lawyer Valerie Bietlot said the same restriction may not be applied to gathering it from pawnbrokers. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said governments should reconsider how they apply privacy legislation to things like pawn shops and stores that sell used goods. “This is quick becoming one of my biggest pet peeves,” he said. “The privacy act was not brought in to protect people reselling stolen goods.” On Dec. 5, the community and protective services committee directed city staff to consult with police and other municipalities to review how the Ontario Pawnbrokers Act is being applied and whether there are ways the city can tighten up enforcement, or whether the city should lobby the province for changes to the act.

Culinary competition raises money for local programs Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - A special cooking competition aims to help out low-income families in the Vanier area in 2014. Eight chefs from across the region will participate in the second edition of the National Capital Culinary Competition, an event that will raise money for the Vanier Community Service Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This event is a great endevour that benefits many local families,â&#x20AC;? said Michael McLellan, vice president of the centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors. Partnered with CitĂŠ CollĂŠgialeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s culinary arts and culinary management programs and the Sheraton Hotel Ottawa, members of the service centre, the college and the ambassadors officially launched the event on Dec. 9. Money raised from the March 4, 2014 event will help out the centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family support services program and the school readiness program, HIPPY. The inaugural event partnered with the Belgian Embassy, offering a Belgian-inspired menu and raising $12,000 for the centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programs, as well as providing money for two CitĂŠ bursaries.

The college plays a large role in the event, as two students get the opportunity to work with one of the eight participating chefs.

This year, Belgian Ambassador Bruno Van der Plujm passed the torch to the Embassy of Spain and Ambassador Carlos Gomez-Mugica Sanz. The collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s co-ordinator for the culinary program, Wayne Murphy, said choosing Spain as the host country was in part inspired by that countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting dishes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we discussed which embassy we hoped we could have partner with us, we disMICHELLE NASH/METROLAND cussed it would be great to have Spain,â&#x20AC;?

Video games can help children learn EMC news - Most people think video games are just entertainment, a way to pass time and escape from the real world. But for parents, gaming can be more than that. Here are three things you can do right now to turn video games from a fun hobby into an opportunity for quality, engaged parenting: â&#x20AC;˘ Play with your kids. This is not speciďŹ c to video games, but video games provide the opportunity to share an interest with your child. By playing two-player co-operative games you can discuss strategies with your child, or share in a victory over the other team. By playing games together, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re learning how to communicate better with your child, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re learning how to work together to solve problems. â&#x20AC;˘ Talk about the game. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just sit and play together. Discuss the prob-

lems in the game, and the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heroes and villains. How does your child feel about how their character is being treated by the bad guys? How does it feel to solve problems? Exploring the themes of the game can give you insight into similar problems your child might be facing at school or with friends. Or, if your child is artistic or musical, ask them what they think about the landscape and scenery in a game, or what level has the best music â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it will help you learn more about their interests, or discover a hidden talent. Let the game continue after the console is powered down. Using game characters, story lines and worlds provide excellent examples that will help your child relate to real world problems. News Canada

Kanata caricaturist scores with hockey humour Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Arts - Randy Duncan scores with satire in his second book He Shootsâ&#x20AC;Ś He Skewers 2! 10 Minutes for Crosshatching. The Katimavik caricaturist has been drawing political and sports cartoons off and on since the mid-80s, amassing enough content to fill two books, with hopes of a third in the near future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hockey is supposed to be fun and what better way of enjoying the game than laughing at it, with it, a bit of both,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hockey fan who sees this book is going to enjoy it.â&#x20AC;? Duncanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work spans the decades, with past greats and current stars all vying for space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mix of old and new,â&#x20AC;? said Duncan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no time period. The perspective is of a caricaturist looking back on the NHL.â&#x20AC;? Duncan got the idea for his first book, He Shoots... He Skewers!, after amassing a large number of sports cartoons. Originally, he was going to include various types of

sports, but narrowed his subject matter down to hockey by the time he decided to self-publish. Summit Studios picked up the first book and Duncan toured the country. The book was done as a tribute to the stars of the NHL past and present as seen through a caricaturist eyes, my eyes. I had it span from the RichardHowe era to the present, which at the time was 2009, he said. His second book, in what he hopes becomes a trilogy, includes a number of humorous hockey hijinks, highlighted with captions that explain the satirical situations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think I like the humour overall better in the second book to be honest,â&#x20AC;? said Duncan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The humour is probably more consistent and I think it might be a little funnier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being a follow up, this book picks up where I left off on the last one. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to once again balance between young stars and past greats, while focusing on the Original Six and Canadian clubs. Crosby, Ovechkin and the Sedins figure prominently, as well as a good deal of Senators material.â&#x20AC;?

Duncanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artistic career started in high school when he drew caricatures of his teachers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was always doing pictures,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You put them in kind of a goofy scene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the teachers, I had done one of him before, and he said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you should be doing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Duncan studied fine arts and graphics design at Concordia University, where he learned to hone his craft and play a little hockey on the side with the school team. As a backup goaltender for the Concordia Stingers during the 1982-83 season, Duncan used his talent to skewer his teammates with caricatures. He still plays for fun, and can often be found in nets at the Kanata Recreation Complex. Duncanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work has been published on a freelance basis in a number of newspapers, including the Montreal Gazette, Ottawa Citizen, Winnipeg Free Press and the Edmonton Journal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to have fun with it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hockey is a game of fun, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entertainment. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m

trying to have fun with the players. Even players I like a lot, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still making fun of.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even met a couple of the players heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lampooned. The one he remembers best is hockey legend Gordie Howe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I showed him a picture and it was in the rough stages. He laughed at the idea,â&#x20AC;? said Duncan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s every bit as classy off the ice as on it. It was fun to meet him and have his reaction be like that to a picture.â&#x20AC;? Living in Ottawa, he cheers for the Senators, as well as players heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fan of from other teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I cheer more for players now. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a big Crosby fan,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like watching the players that are fun to watch. Ovechkin is always fun to watch.â&#x20AC;? He Shootsâ&#x20AC;Ś He Skewers 2! 10 Minutes for Crosshatching is available at a number of local book stores just in time for the holidays, including Chapters in Kanata, South Keys, Rideau, and Pinecrest, Coles at Bayshore Shopping Centre, and Indigo in Barrhaven.

Aries, some difficulty awaits you, but you are strong and fully capable of handling what’s coming your way. Maintain your composure and stick it out a little longer. Taurus, this is your week to shine and let everyone at work know just how talented and devoted you are to the team. Enjoy the fanfare while you can get it. Distractions are lurking, Gemini, but you will still manage to get things done. Somehow you find the focus needed to muddle through all the work. Trust someone close to you with a few of your secrets, Cancer. Holding them in may only cause you grief in the long run. Don’t worry, your confidante will be supportive. Leo, an investment opportunity has piqued your interest. Until you sign over the funds, be sure to research everything thoroughly and call in some expert advice. Virgo, you have a lot on your plate, but you can handle it on your own. If things are to get done, you will get them accomplished of your own accord, even if it takes longer.

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Some added confidence is all you need to get back on the right track, Libra. Things are bound to work out in your favor, especially when you put your mind to something. Scorpio, just when skepticism seems to be taking over, you will discover once in a while there are a few surprises with happy endings. Enjoy your good luck. Sagittarius, though unusual, your behavior might seem perfectly reasonable to you. But unless you share your thoughts with others, they may wonder what is going on. Remember that words said in the heat of the moment will not soon be forgotten, Capricorn. Don’t forget to employ some tact when discussing serious matters with loved ones. Aquarius, this week you will have to be very convincing if you want plans to go your way. Brush up on your approach and give thought to exactly what it is you want to say. Take a few days to let your mind wander, Pisces. You will probably find being a free spirit to be a refreshing break from the norm.
