We reassure Eritrean democrats who are fighting to achieve peace and justice in Eritrea that we will do whatever we can to make our voices heard on behalf of the voiceless and oppressed people of Eritrea. We remind PFDJ’s sympathisers and supporters to stop rewarding the dictatorial regime which is oppressing the Eritrean people day in day out. We renew our call

Melbourne Rally 2012 . . . From page 1 to those who are silent to be vocal; to those who are planning to participate in the Festival, we urge you to think again and reverse your decision. We call upon all decent Eritreans to support our peaceful rally, demanding respect for human rights and the establishment of the rule of law in Eritrea. To those who are undecided, we encourage you to take a bold step and join our peaceful rally, because demanding justice for ALL Eritreans is a noble thing to do. As usual, we ask some legitimate questions that occupy the minds of caring and decent Eritreans: Does the Eritrean regime really care about its people? Does the Eritrean regime really take concrete measures to alleviate or, at least, to reduce the suffering of its people? Does the Eritrean regime really believe in justice, which we outside the festival venue are calling for? The ruling party in Eritrea is named People’s Front for Democracy and Justice. Does this

party really understand the great ideals this name hold? Definitely NOT! In fact, the appropriate name for the ruling party is Popular Front for Dictatorship & Jailing. Is war/conflict the right approach to resolve the everlasting tension between Eritrea and our neighbouring countries? Does the Eritrean regime really know why the youth are escaping to neighbouring countries in droves? What actions has the Eritrean regime taken to address the youth’s concerns? Why Eritrea has no a representative legitimate parliament elected by the people? why the Eritrean constitution is shelved indefinitely? We remind our Eritrean compatriots who preferred to remain silent and those who are planning to be part of the festival to contemplate about those important issues and search truth answers to those questions. We remind you the progress and development programs that you watch on ERI-TV are mere propagandas utterly in contradictions to the bitter reality and dire situation inside Eritrea. Eritrea

would have been a better country had it been ruled by the rule of law. Enough is enough, fight for the people’s rights. Yes to democracy, No to dictatorship Yes for the rule of law Justice for prisoners of Conscience, Political prisoners and Journalists No to interference in religion affairs, and justice for our religion teachers and leaders Respect for the elderly and cultural norms people’s Power will remove the dictatorial regime in Eritrea.

A Letter to European Union High Representative – From the President of ICER European Union High Representative

DROWNING IN DEBT If you have financial difficulties, I can help. Together We Can Find The Solution

Ms. Catherine Ashton Brussels

17 years experience

Honorable Catherine Ashton We are pleased to learn that the European Union has taken a decisive action against the Government of Eritrea which has continued abusing human rights through various mechanisms under its disposal. The regime far from mellowing down due its isolation from the community of nations has continued to detain people without due process of law, muzzle the free expression of citizens and intensified its shot to kill policy for any person attempting to cross the border for freedom. The abuse are too many to list here but goes beyond the arbitrary detention of people for expressing dissenting views perceived inimical to its oppressive policy. The abuse extends to the point of depriving the peasants and the agro-pastorals from pursuing their time tested long developed adverse coping mechanism by expropriating their produce and most tragically alienating the only means of production under their disposal, the land. It has been common practice of the regime to uproot people from their ancestral lands deemed important for its self aggrandized projects with little or no benefit to the victims. These, therefore are the primary cause for the sudden and massive influx of refugees unprecedented in the history of the region.

The case in point is the story of 12 villages in the ones fertile region of Hazemo at areas known as Itaro and Akran were peasants forcibly removed and relocated to the western lowlands of Gerest. Unaccustomed, to living in agro-ecologic zone unfamiliar to their natural settings many of the displaced succumbed to malaria epidemics where tens of them died. The sad part in this episode is that they were made to settle in areas that were formerly inhabited by people who still exist as refugees in the Sudan. Moreover, many of the strategically important grazing grounds where pastoral population employed during the lean years are now converted into large scale farms some supplemented with irrigation water. Most are owned by individual army generals who are not accountable to the ‘state of Eritrea’. It is also important to mention here that the mining operation currently underway are affecting the pastoral population through the cordoning of large tracts of land normally reserved for grazing and by competing for water resource already deficient in the area. In conclusion, the International Commission on Eritrean Refugees would like to reiterate its satisfaction with the measures taken by the EU regarding the region in general and its resolve to addressing the refugee problem in particular. The appointment of Mr. Alexander Rondos as EU special representative for the Horn of Africa clearly shows that the organization is in the right direction to help us address some of our pressing problem, the refugee question. The ICER along its sister organizations has been in the forefront advocating for the welfare of the refugees and in educating them from undertaking perilous journeys across the desert or taking the treacherous sea route where they may fall victims of human traffickers and organ harvester. ICER also strives to improve their living condition while sheltered at refugee camps through input intervention such as building schools, digging water holes, and granting scholarship for the college bound young at universities in Ethiopia and Sudan. It is however, important to remind EU that if the measures that intend to take is worthwhile the efforts and sincere at best, it needs to partner with organizations like the ICER who are at the forefront of the struggle. Respectifully, Yebio Woldemariam, Ph.D President, International Commission on Eritrean Refugees

Prime Minister Canada Mr. Haprper did an interview with CTV and here is his outlook of the 2012 economy. Canada is not out of the woods after several years of depressed economic activity, Prime Minister Stephen Harper warned in a year-end interview with CTV. “We have some major challenges in front of us,” Harper said in a wide-ranging interview with CTV News Chief Anchor and Senior Editor Lisa LaFlamme, which airs Monday at 7 p.m. With an eye on 2012, Harper repeatedly mentioned how tough economic times globally could affect Canada and the budget. “There’s going to be a whole range of areas where this government’s going to be taking issues over the next year to secure the sustainability of our key programs,” Harper said. “The next year will be a very challenging year for the global economy and therefore the economy of this country.” Despite extensive international and domestic criticism over Canada’s decision to pull out of the Kyoto Accord, Harper remains adamant that it was the right move. “It doesn’t matter what Canada does. It doesn’t matter what, frankly, Europe does. Unless we get all of the major emitters to be part of an accord that has mandatory targets, we’re not going to get anywhere,” he said.

“We have to have those who produce the most emissions actually doing the biggest reductions,” he said, mentioning China, the United States and India are not covered under the emission-lowering accord. At the same time, Harper also made strong statements about selling Canadian oil to China after the Keystone XL pipeline project to the United States was delayed by the White House. “I am very serious about selling our oil off this continent, selling our energy products off to China,” he said. However, speaking about a recent trip to the United States, Harper did say that he’s been told privately the Keystone project will go ahead. “I ran into several senior Americans, who all said, ‘Don’t worry, we’ll get Keystone done. You can sell all of your oil to us.’ I said, ‘Yeah we’d love to but the problem is now we’re on a different track.’” The prime minister was also joined by his wife, Laureen, for part of the interview, who spoke of the challenges of raising kids at 24 Sussex Avenue in the Facebook age. A lot has changed for Harper over the past year, who says for the first time in a decade he has some job security and is not “living out of a suitcase.”

Laugh & Learn By Susan W.

An Exemplary Event During A Festive Season By Aaron Berhane The Advocates for Etobicoke Youth held their annual Children Christmas party on December 17th, 2011 at Woodbine Banquet and Convention Centre.

Jokes Dear Lord


So far this year I’ve done well.

New Year’s Eve Party Phantom Guest?

I haven’t gossiped, I haven’t lost my temper, I haven’t been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or overindulgent. I’m very thankful for that. But in a few minutes, Lord, I’m going to get out of bed, and from then on I’m probably going to need a lot more help.

Trevor’s New Year’s Eve party was an annual occurrence with numerous guests arriving. During the evening, a man knocked on the door, was greeted heartily although no one knew who he was, and was led to where the drinks were, in the kitchen. He sat there happily, chatting away, for a couple of hours before a strange light dawned on his face. ‘You know,’ he confided to Trevor, ‘I wasn’t even invited to this party. I just came over to tell you that some of your guests’ cars are blocking my drive.’ He continued, ‘My wife’s been sitting out in the car waiting for me to get them moved, so that we can go out.’ - - -- - - - - - - - - -

Amen -------------A New Year’s Wish On New Year’s Eve, Marilyn stood up in the local pub and said that it was time to get ready. At the stroke of midnight, she wanted every husband to be standing next to the one person who made his life worth living. Well, it was kind of embarrassing. As the clock struck - the bartender was almost crushed to death. --------------How to Quit Smoking Peter, at a New Year’s party, turns to his friend, Ken, and asks for a cigarette. ‘I thought you made a New Year’s resolution to quit smoking,’ Ken responds. ‘I’m in the process of quitting,’ replies Peter with a grin. ‘Right now, I am in the middle of phase one.’ ‘Phase one?’ wonders Ken. ‘Yeah,’ laughs Peter, ‘I’ve quit buying.’

A Bad Dream? Jemima was taking an afternoon nap on New Year’s Eve before the festivities. After she woke up, she confided to Max, her husband, ‘I just dreamed that you gave me a diamond ring for a New Year’s present. What do you think it all means?’ ‘Aha, you’ll know tonight,’ answered Max smiling broadly. At midnight, as the New Year was chiming, Max approached Jemima and handed her small package. Delighted and excited she opened it quickly. There in her hand rested a book entitled: ‘The meaning of dreams’.


Dhaman Kissoon The founder and key organizer of the event, criminal lawyer Mr. Dhaman Kissoon, stated that this activity was a joint community effort, and its main mission is to help the children in need. “About 9 years ago we started this organization called Advocate For Etobicoke Youth,” said Mr. Kissoon. “We try to look after the underprivileged youth in the north Etobicoke area; police, community leaders, community organizers, businesses, we all came together by pulling our resources”. He also stated that one of the main reason for him to move from his downtown law firm office to Etobicoke was to get in touch with the common people and offer his help. “When I came out here, I saw the need, when I saw the poverty, the difficulties

children are having. Because I deal with them in the court, you try to find out why those children are in problem.” This motivated him to mobilize his community so as to help out the needy children. Mr. Kissoon praised Superintendent Ron Taverner and his team from 23 Division of the Toronto Police Service for their tremendous contribution. Superintendent Ron Taverner is happy to involve with his staff in helping his community. “What I see all the time is,” said Superintendent Ron, “how much people are in need, particularly young people in this community a lot of them don’t have some of the things we take for granted, like proper food, proper meal, the ability to have a good Christmas, a sense of coming together.” He added that with this event they try to do all those things bring them together and show needy children at least one good day that people really care about them. The event took place at the prestigious Woodbine Banquet and Convention Center. Mr. Kissoon expressed his appreciation to the management of the Convention Cen-

tre for donating the hall at no cost and to friends and relatives who attended as volunteers. The event also attracted corporate and individual sponsorships like Sobey’s, GH Wood, Woodbine Entertainment, Benevito Foods, Saputo, Armstrong Partnership among others. About 300 children of Etobicoke area and their parents were treated to a lavish breakfast and entertained by North Albion Collegiate students who played Christmas tunes on the steeel pan. The day’s excitement reached its pinnacle when Santa Claus arrived and distributed a wrapped gift to each and every child. The event was full of joy and

Superintendent Ron Taverner shows clearly that the underprivileged youths in Etobicoke area are not left alone during the festive season.

10-Year Terms: More Taste, Less Filling


By Melanie & Rob McLister With the recent dip in longterm funding costs, lenders are finally sharpening their pencils on 10-year mortgage pricing. Decade-long rates haven’t been this cheap in virtually forever. Some brokers are quoting as low as 4.34% today, whereas most lenders were over 5% last quarter. (Not that long ago, 4.34% was considered good for even a 5-year rate, let alone a 10-year.) With 10-year mortgages going “on sale”, we did some calculations to see how they stack up against the most popular term, the 5-year fixed. Looking back through history, 10-year terms have rarely come out on top. If you opted

instead for two consecutive five-year fixed mortgages, you would have saved money roughly 9 out of 10 times. (See: Fixed Mortgages: 10 Year vs. 5 Year) Today, however, 10-year rates have nosedived and lenders are stubbornly refusing to pass along lower costs on 5-year terms. So it’s worth a look to see if the tables have turned. To do this, we ran a little simulation with these parameters: A starting 5-year fixed rate of 3.19% A 4.39% 10-year fixed rate Equal payments in the first five years (i.e. the monthly payment is topped up on the 5-year fixed to match the 10year fixed payments)

A 25-year amortization The result is that 5-year rates would have to jump roughly 3% in 56 months for a 10year fixed to cost less. (We say “56” months instead of five years because borrowers can hold renewal rates at least four months prior to maturity.) To put a 3% rate increase in perspective: The last time rates leaped that high was 17 years ago in 1994 It would imply 5-year bond yield of roughly 4.25%, assuming mortgage spreads stay the same (which they won’t, but it’s a fair guess anyway). A 4.25% 5-year yield is well above the long-term (20012011) average of 3.43%. With the BoC’s modest 2% inflation target and lackluster

economic growth forecasts, many would argue that an up-move over 3% is fairly unlikely in 56 months (but not certainly not impossible). Now, this is not to say 10year terms are pointless. They have their applications. Two examples might be the homeowner with extreme risk aversion or the landlord who wants to lock in a cash flow spread for the long-term. Either way, you’ll pay a hefty cost up front to know your rate for years 6-10 in advance. Other things being equal, taking a 10-year term will guarantee that you pay roughly $6,000 more interest than the 5-year fixed. That’s in the first five years alone, and it’s $6,000 more for every $100,000 you borrow.

can always break your 10year term after 60 months. In that case, you’d generally pay a 3-month interest penalty, assuming there were a cheaper mortgage to switch into. When feasible, doing this does reduce the downside of a 10-year term, but you’ll still be out $6,000/$100k of mortgage, plus the penalty. All told, recent rate cuts have made 10-year terms less bad, but they’re not tantalizing yet. They’d probably have to crack the psychologically important 4.00% barrier before homeowners start biting in significant numbers.

Of course, if rates stay low for the next five years, you

Harper Warns Of ‘Very Challenging’ . . . From page 20 The Conservatives’ majority victory in May ended half a decade of minority politics and changed the political landscape. With the NDP and the Liberals both under interim leaders, Harper faces an opposition in flux. He says he intends to fully use the opportunity with his firm grasp on power

and allies are not,” he said. Harper says Canada has “fiscal flexibility” but is pursuing modest reductions in government spending in order to reduce the deficit. He adds that immigration reform, particularly with credentials recognition, could be a real boost to the Canadian economy.

“I’ve seen too many majority governments (in which the) bureaucracy talks them into going to sleep for three years and then they all of a sudden realize they’re close to an election,” he said. “We’re going to try and keep busy through the whole four years.”

“But we’ve got to do more in the economy of the future than just passively accept applications. We have to recruit people to come to this country, particularly when there are specific skill shortages that are developing, and that’s what we’re going to do as a government,” he said.

Harper maintains that the economy continues to be the top item on his agenda, particularly as the economic recovery remains precarious because of the uncertain situation in Europe.

A week before Christmas, Ottawa announced a new 10-year health-care plan that took the provinces by surprise. While it was received well in the Western provinces, eastward it was greeted with outrage.

“We still need to find some ways that this country can continue to grow, even if our major partners

“But I think we all understand that the rate of growth of the

health-care system can’t be sustained and that somehow that’s going to have to be tackled, so that we, we keep a system that Canadians value,” Harper said of the new plan. “This government will ensure that there continue to be increases in healthcare transfers.” On a more personal note from the past year, Harper spoke about the passing of Jack Layton and his decision to grant the NDP leader a state funeral. “I think in the end, the funeral and the outpouring, everybody made it as good as a situation as it could be under the circumstances. I mean truth is, obviously it was a terrible personal tragedy but I think we all made the best (of it,)” he said. “Everybody knew Jack, knew that he was liked. He was liked by those who disagreed with, even those who disagreed with everything he believed in.” Foreign Affairs The Arab Spring, particularly

the uprising in Libya, threw the Harper government -- like most Western governments – a curveball in the international arena. Canadian troops left for Libya in March to participate in the NATO-led mission there, with Canadian Forces aircraft taking on an active bombing role. “In the case of Libya, the, part of the reason we got so aggressively involved as it was actually hard to imagine that even Libya could possibly get worse,” Harper said of the mission, which officially ended in November. “This has been a pretty remarkable revolution in Libya to this point.” But Harper says he is conflicted about whether the Arab Spring revolutions will led to peace in the region. He says the situation in Egypt -- which has had peaceful relations with Israel for decades – is mixed and he’s expressed his concern to Israeli Prime Minis-

ter Benjamin Netanyahu. With Canadian combat operations ending this year in Afghanistan, Harper said the initial goal of the mission -- to stop terrorism -- has been largely successful. “Afghanistan now, with all its internal security problems, is today no longer a threat to the rest of the world, and that is a big step forward,” Harper said. “And there’s been other steps forward in terms of women’s rights and some of the particular services . . . but there is an awfully long way to go in terms of seeing the kind of country I think everybody would like to see.” The full year-end interview with Prime Minister Stephen Harper airs tonight. You can watch it on CTV at 7 p.m. local time in most of the country, except in Manitoba and Saskatchewan where it will air at 10 p.m. (Check your local listings.)

Herbal Medicine

What is Chinese Herbal Medicine? Health is more than just the absence of disease, and Chinese Medicine recognises this with its unique capacity to harmonise and enhance our capacity for enjoyment fulfillment and happiness. Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM) is an ancient system of health care that has undergone continual development over the centuries as the causes of illness that afflict mankind have evolved. In its country of origin it is not an alternative form of therapy, but is used in the state hospitals alongside modern medicine.

Chinese Medicine consists of: herbal therapy acupuncture dietary therapy exercise lifestyle management. Some or several of these may be employed in the course of your treatment.

Are Chinese Safe?


Chinese Medicine has been used as front line medicine by the majority of the worlds population since before recorded history, and is still the most widely utilised medical

system in the world today. Adverse reactions to Chinese herbs are extremely rare and are negligible when compared to those commonly produced by pharmaceutical drugs.

What are the Herbs like and How Much Will They Cost? Herbs are now available in a number of formats, both traditional and modern. The herbs will taste unusual at first to anyone who has not tried them before, hut most people will get used to the taste very quickly There are no standard prices for treatment or herbs. This will depend on the individual practitioner and the part of the country you are in. You should enquire about charges when making your appointment. Many private health insurance companies are now covering acupuncture and a few will also pay for herbal treatment. Contact your insurance company to

check. Endangered Species The RCHM is greatly concerned about the threat to wild animals and plants that have come about as a result of the growth in demand for traditional medicines. RCHM has a strict policy forbidding the use of any type of endangered species.

Respiratory conditions Allergies Disorders of the immune system Pain Psychological problems Children ‘s diseases Addiction.

What Can They Treat?

Who Can Have Treatment?

Chinese Medicine can understand and treat all forms of ill health. The results that can be expected and the length of treatment required will depend on the severity of the disease, it’s duration and the general health of the patient. Chinese Herbal Medicine is probably most renowned in the west for it’s effects on:

Chinese Herbal Medicine can be employed by people of any age or constitution. Your practitioner will take any previous or current illness or medication into account before providing treatment. Children and pregnant women can be, and commonly are, cared for by Chinese Herbal Medicine.

Top Canada’s CEOs got about 200 times the average worker’s pay in 2010 By Eiven Tes According to the study of Hugh Mackenzie, top Canada’s CEOs earned 189 times of the average worker’s pay in 2010. The economy may have weathered the recent economic storm, but a scant few Canadians are enjoying the benefits. In fact, the average worker is falling further behind, according to a study that found the average “Elite 100” CEO will have earned more than the average Canadian’s annual income by noon on January 3. According to the study’s author, Hugh Mackenzie of the left-leaning think tank Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Canada is “just behind the United States in terms of the degree of inequality, but inequality is growing faster in Canada than it is anywhere else in the developed world.” Data compiled for a newlyreleased study reveals that onethird of all income gains in Canada between 1987 and 2007 went to the richest 1 per cent of Canadians. And while the richest among us keep getting richer, Mackenzie says the average Canadian hasn’t seen a meaningful pay hike in 40 years. In an interview with CTV News Channel on Tuesday, Mackenzie said the numbers tell the tale. While the 100 highest paid CEOs of companies listed in the S&P/TSX composite index earned an average of $8.38 million in 2010, the average fulltime Canadian worker was paid just $44,366. Even more telling, Mackenzie said, is that compensation for the top 100 CEOs was up 27 per cent from the year before, while the inflation-adjusted wages of the average Canadian actually fell in 2009. “Over 30, 40 years there really hasn’t been a whole lot of change in the after-tax adjusted income of the average wage earner in Canada. In inflationadjusted terms people are being roughly what they were in the late 1970s,” Mackenzie said.

The growing divide between the average worker’s pay and the compensation afforded the country’s most highly-paid executives, he added, is a surefire recipe for discontent. “It makes people angry because I think people understand instinctively, from their own lives, that they haven’t been getting a share of the economic growth that’s been taking place in Canada.” Although the current government does not appear keen to tackle the issue, Mackenzie believes it will inevitably have to one day. “If you look south of the border there’s quite an active debate going on about how the government should respond to these gross expansions of income inequality,” he said. “My longer term view is that the kind of growing inequality that these kind of salary figures represent is not very stable.” Highlights from the study, which was based on 2010 income data, include: Despite their broad range of expertise and backgrounds, all but one of the most highly-paid

CEOs share one characteristic -they’re male. The top two earners of 2010 were both from the same company -Magna International Inc. -- with top-earner Frank Stronach’s $62 million take-home coming on the heels of his deal for the autoparts manufacturer. Excluding Stronach’s sum from the salaries of the top 100 CEOs would drop their average income by $62,000 The average “Elite 100” CEO will have earned more than the average Canadian’s annual income by noon on January 3, while the lowest paid among them will have to wait until almost 5 p.m. the next day to surpass the average worker. The 189-fold difference between the top CEO’s pay and salaried workers pales in comparison to the gap between the most highly-paid and the average full-time minimum wage worker who earned just $19,798 in 2010. Reversing the trend, Mackenzie says, defies simple solutions. Not least because CEOs’ pay is typically set by corporate boards on the advice of consultants who only bargain on the basis of what others “in the club” are being paid. The result is effectively a closedloop in which pay packets continually grow in a bid to better the competition.

64 per cent of Canadians are financially optimistic: poll TORONTO — A new CIBC poll shows 64 per cent of Canadians feel positive about their current financial situation, a finding the bank describes as strong, but still five per cent lower than a year ago. The poll, conducted for the bank in mid-November by Harris/Decima, also found that an even higher number of Canadians -- 72 per cent -- were confident they would reach their future financial goals, unchanged from last year. Across age groups, confidence in achieving financial goals was generally strong, although there was a declining trend with age. For example, among Canadians aged 18 to 34, 78 per cent said they were confident of reaching their financial goals. However, among Canadians closer to retirement -- those 55 to 64 -- only 68 per cent felt their goals were achievable. Responses also varied by province, with those feeling

good about meeting future goals running from a high of 85 per cent in Alberta to a low of 60 per cent in Quebec. And among those happy with their current financial situation, positive responses ran from a high of 72 per cent, also in Alberta, to a low of 54 per cent in British Columbia. “Canadians are entering 2012 with a generally positive outlook on their finances, although they are somewhat less positive about their current financial situation than they were a year ago,” said Christina Kramer, executive vice-president, retail distribution and channel strategy at CIBC. “(Still) it’s encouraging to see more Canadians recognizing the importance of setting financial goals for themselves and a strong level of confidence in achieving those goals,” Kramer said. The poll, conducted by Harris/Decima, surveyed 2,015 people and is considered accurate with a margin of plus or minus 2.2 percentage points 19 times out of 20.

ONTARIO PCs TO DUNCAN: IT CAN BE A HAPPY NEW YEAR QUEEN’S PARK – 2012 can be a better year than the one now behind us if only the government shows a grasp of economic issues, PC Finance Critic Peter Shurman signalled today to Finance Minister Dwight Duncan. “Ontarians are looking to all of us now to take action on a fraying economy,” Shurman said. “The rating agencies are watching too. Another – and truly disastrous – credit downgrade can be avoided if we demonstrate that we can act together to tackle our jobs, spending and debt crisis.” Shurman offered, as an example of recent discord about Ontario’s direction on jobs and our econo-

my, the debate over business tax rates during an economic downturn. Duncan had previously said that such business tax increases ‘will kill Ontario’s competitive edge.’

It’s called ‘a business input’ – just like labour or energy costs. So of course a tax hike on the services sector will hit the bottom line of our hard-pressed manufacturers.

“The new Liberal spin is that scrapping the next round of legislated business tax reductions would not harm our struggling manufacturing sector, which constitutes 15 per cent of our economy,” Shurman said. “But this tax increase would be foisted on the other 85 per cent.”

“To deny this is like saying a jump in the price of steel would have no impact on the cost of a new car.”

Shurman stressed that our economy doesn’t work in silos this way: “Ontario manufacturers depend on the services sector.

Shurman noted that any aboutface on employer tax reductions would come on top of the January 1 WSIB payroll tax hike, forecast Hydro increases of eight per cent, a rising Canadian dollar for our exporters, the expected further deterioration of the US economy and the continuing crisis in the Eurozone.

“So I urge the Minister to begin 2012 by recognizing economic reality on the impact of higher business taxes,” Shurman said. “This would mark a New Year of cooperation on milestones yet to come – including the Drummond report later this month and the spring Budget – where the rubber really hits the road.” Shurman recalled an old saying that, ‘There is no limit to what someone can do if he doesn’t mind who gets the credit.’

“My New Year’s message to Minister Duncan is to heed this advice,” Shurman said.

“Time to cap hospital CEO salaries”: Horwath In British Columbia, the CEO of Fraser Health is paid $460,000 a year. In Manitoba, the CEO of Winnipeg Regional Health Authority is paid $450,000 a year.

QUEEN’S PARK - New Democrat Leader Andrea Horwath reiterated her call for a cap on public sector CEO salaries in light of the release of contracts of hundreds of hospital CEOs and executives across Ontario. “When patients are coping with closed ERs and growing wait times, there’s no way to justify spending scarce health dollars on private clubs and $700,000 salaries,” said Horwath. “We need to get our priorities in check and CEO salaries down to levels we see in other provinces.” As of January 1, Ontario’s hospitals are subject to Freedom of Information Act provisions and contracts for hospital CEOs and executive became public for the first time. In addition to salaries ranging as high $758,000 a year, the contracts show lucrative benefits to senior executives such as membership in the York Club, health club memberships worth $6000 a year, generous car allowances, and severance packages worth over a million dollars. Compensation levels for executives in other provinces are not nearly as high.

“The only person who should be waiting in a hospital is the CEO waiting for another raise,” said Horwath. “In tough times, we just can’t afford these irresponsible pay packages on the public dime. Everyday Ontarians are being told to tighten their belts, while hospital CEOs will make more in bonuses than a hardworking family will make in salary in an entire year.” Horwath has proposed capping public sector CEO salaries at $418,000 a year - twice the salary paid the Premier.

Food Guide A Good Start For New Year's Resolutions Canadians making New Year’s resolutions are being reminded to consult Canada’s Food Guide for healthy dietary choices. The guide lists the types of food you should consume each day and how to keep portion sizes in check. Health Canada recommends eating from the four food groups: vegetables and fruit; grains; milk and alternatives; and meat and alternatives:

Eat meat alternatives such as beans, lentils and tofu frequently. Consume at least two servings of fish a week — selecting salmon, mackerel, sardines, trout, char and herring. Choose lean meats, and roast, bake or poach them versus frying. Health Canada stresses that Canadians should opt for a diet low in saturated fat and trans fat, while including small quanti-

ties of unsaturated fats each day, such as canola, olive or soya oils, margarine or mayonnaise. Water should be the beverage of choice, as it cuts calories. The health agency also wants people to be more active in the new year, including more exercise in their daily lives.

Eat at least one dark green and one orange vegetable each day. Suggestions include carrots, sweet potatoes and squash, as well as broccoli, romaine lettuce or spinach. Choose steamed, baked and stir-fried over deep fried. Make sure at least half of your daily grain intake is whole grain. Whole grains include barley, brown rice, oats, quinoa and wild rice. Whole grain bread and oatmeal are good choices, as are those low in fat, sugar and salt. Drink two cups of skim, one per cent or two per cent milk. Soy drinks are another good option, as are low-fat yogurts or cheeses.

Ipad Passport Scan Gets Man Across U.S. Border A Montreal man who crossed the U.S. border using a scan of his passport saved on his iPad says he hopes the practice will become commonplace in the near future. But federal critics say border officers failed their duty by allowing Martin Reisch into the United States with only digital proof of identity. Reisch drove to Vermont to visit friends for the holidays and realized as he ap-

proached the border that he forgot his passport. He had a scan of it saved on his iPad and showed it to the border officer. “There was a slight hesitation, he didn’t really seem like he was impressed,” Reisch said, but after a few minutes’ wait, he was allowed through the border checkpoint. The anecdote is troubling because a scanned copy of a passport “is not a secure document,” said MP Brian

Masse. “That could be altered, and could also lead to some precedents that would jeopardize [border] security,” said Masse, NDP critic for US-Canada border relations. However, Masse added, electronic passports could be implemented in future with safety features. In the meantime, Reisch said, he hopes his iPad scan or a similar facsimile

becomes as common as using a smartphone for airplane tickets. “I’m a huge believer in technology,” he said. In a statement sent to CBC, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection said it does allow several pieces of identification at the Canadian border. The list does not include a passport scan.

Canada And Russia To Meet In World Juniors Semifinal CALGARY — Canada started its furious comeback too late, and for the first time in over a decade the junior hockey power will not play for the gold medal. The host country fell 6-5 to Russia in Tuesday’s semifinal at the world junior hockey championship, despite a four-goal burst in the third period that added drama to a game that had looked like a blowout. “We had to be better early and we weren’t,” Canadian head coach Don Hay said. Canada will not play for gold in this tournament for the first time since 2001, when the Czech Republic beat Finland in the final in Moscow while Canada settled for bronze. Instead Russia will meet Sweden for the gold medal, while Canada faces Finland for bronze Thursday. Sweden beat Finland 3-2 in a shootout in Tuesday’s other semifinal. The defending-champion Russians scored five times in the third period to beat Canada 5-3 in last year’s final in Buffalo, N.Y. Russia now has a chance at winning back-to-back titles for the first time since 2002 and 2003. Russian captain Evgeni Kuznetsov, a Washington Capitals prospect and the lone returning player from last year’s squad, was a one-man wrecking crew with three goals and an assist. Defencemen Nikita Nesterov and Alexander

Khokhlachev and forward Nikita Kucherov also scored for the Russians. Yakupov, an NHL draft prospect who plays for the Ontario Hockey League’s Sarnia Sting, had three assists. “We didn’t finish strong, but we scored six goals and we beat Canada,” said Russian forward Nail Yakupov. “Russia’s better than Canada.” Connolly replied for Canada early in the second period. Trailing 6-1 in the third, Dougie Hamilton, Jaden Schwartz, Brendan Gallagher and Brandon Gormley all scored for Canada in just under a five-minute span starting at 9:27. The Canadians pressed for the equalizer in the final minutes, but couldn’t get it. Ryan Strome hit the post and Connolly had a chance at his rebound with less than a minute remaining. “I don’t know how to explain it. It sucks,” Connolly said. “We had chances to score goals. We were that close to tying it up, even though we didn’t play that well early.” Russia needed overtime to get by the Czech Republic 2-1 in Monday’s quarterfinal, but it was the faster team out of the gates. Canada had gone undefeated in four games in the preliminary round. They’d outscored their opposi-

tion 9-0 in the first period and 26-5 overall, but they were not prepared to start the game for the speed and skill of the Russians. “We didn’t get off to the start that we have been getting off to,” Hay said. “We didn’t do the things we normally do, and that’s drive pucks down the wall and get pucks to the net. “We didn’t do a good job getting pucks to the net off the rush, we didn’t do a good job of traffic. Once we started getting more pucks, traffic and people to the net, we had more success.” Canada played in the final every year from 2002 to 2011 with a 5-5 record. With the bar set so high for Canada’s junior teams, the loss was crushing for this year’s squad. They faced reporters with long faces and red eyes. Canada outshot Russia 5624 and didn’t bury enough chances early in the game.

Andrei Vasilevski stopped 44 of 49 shots in Russia’s net. He was replaced by Andrei Makarov after Gormley’s goal at 4:17. Makarov, who plays for the Western Hockey League’s Saskatoon Blades, stopped all seven shots he faced. Wedgewood allowed four goals on 13 shots. He left the game at 8:48 of the second period when Khokhlachev crashed into the net on Kuznetsov’s third goal. “He blindsided me after that goal,” Wedgewood said. “Lower back and neck just kind of gave out. Just recover here and try to get better tomorrow.” Visentin stopped eight of 10 shots in relief. The Canadians lost their cool after Wedgewood left the game in the second period. Russia scored their fifth goal and second on the power play when Gallagher took a high-sticking penalty on Mikael Naumenkov.

Boone Jenner was given a game misconduct for spearing later in the period and Jonathan Huberdeau took a misconduct for slashing with just under two minutes two go. The Canadians stayed out of the penalty box in the third period and scored two of their four goals with a man advantage. They had the Russians scrambling to hold them off in the third, but the visitors had done enough work early to get the win. Canada now plays for bronze, a colour it traditionally doesn’t get too excited about. “Every game you play is worth playing for,” Hay said. “It’s an honour to win a medal at this competition, no matter what medal it is. Our guys respect the fans, respect each other and I expect them to play hard for each other.”
