Veil is lifted on forced marriages Ontario study. 219 reported cases in 3 years cut across lines of culture, nationality A groundbreaking three-year study of forced marriage in Ontario has found more than 200 women who were wed against their will, a practice the report’s authors say highlights serious gaps in services. The first-of-its-kind report, being released at a Toronto news conference Friday, was conducted by the South Asian Legal Clinic of Ontario, which questioned 30 social service agencies about the practice. It found 219 reported cases between 2010 and 2012, with

97 per cent of the victims being women. The survey found the majority of victims, 81 per cent, were between 16 and 34 years old. The report found that parents, siblings, extended family, grandparents and religious leaders were all involved in pushing individuals into forced marriage. The reasons were mostly cultural (66 per cent), but honour, money and immigration purposes were also behind some forced marriages. The report also calls for better training for teachers, guidance counsellors, health professionals and police, and for including forced marriage in the definition of “family violence” when an applicant seeks priority in getting subsidized housing.


“I hope people will understand more about forced marriage and how common it is, because it happens in everyone’s backyard. We just don’t recognize the signs.” Sandeep Chand, activist

Many victims forced into marriage experienced some form of violence, including threats (68 per cent), physical violence (59 per cent), sexual violence (26 per cent) and stalking (20 per cent), the report said. “The results we got back show that this is an issue across a number of communities in Ontario,” says Shalini Konanur, executive director and lawyer at the South Asian Legal Clinic. The largest number of forced marriages was within the Muslim community with 103 victims from more than 30 countries of origin, including Afghanistan, Palestine, Senegal, Swaziland, Turkey and the United Kingdom, as well as Canada. Forty-four were Hindu, 30 were Sikh and 12 Christian. “It’s prevalent everywhere,” said Sandeep Chand, an outspoken advocate for spreading awareness about forced marriage. “It’s not just a South Asian issue. “It’s a global issue; it’s a human rights issue.” TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

U of T students trade cash for seats in full classes Education? No rules to prevent students from buying and selling scarce spots in packed courses University of Toronto students desperate for scarce seats in fully booked classrooms are offering cash to classmates willing to give up a spot, turning registration into a bidding war. “$100 to whomever drops (History of Modern Espionage),” posted Christopher Grossi on Facebook Tuesday.

“I really need this course.” The third-year history student said the 180-person course filled up before his designated registration time. After talking to the professor without success, he said offering money was his last chance to coax someone to trade with him. The university’s course registration system prioritizes students based on need and creates a wait list for full classes, said Glenn Loney, assistant dean and faculty registrar of the university’s faculty of arts and science.


“Once the university drops the wait list, it’s mostly just every man for themselves.” Student Christopher Grossi

But there is a narrow window of opportunity in the days after the wait list closes and before the final deadline for students to add or drop courses. “Once the university drops

the wait list, it’s mostly just every man for themselves,” Grossi said. Some students have taken to Facebook to name a price for their coveted seat. In a post earlier this week, one student offered to sell her spots in two psychology courses for $50 apiece — or she’ll swap for a space in another psychology class. Third-year computer science student “Lee,” who would not give his full name for fear of repercussions by the university, said he has sold his spot in courses twice, for

$20 each. Munib Sajjad, the president of U of T’s student union, said students frequently face problems with the university’s registration system and can’t get into the courses they need. “Students will probably try to do everything just to pursue an education,” he said. However, Loney said ultimately the university can only offer so many spots. “We’re doing our best with these limited resources to make sure students get what they need,” he said.

Ford mum on Price’s future Mayor Rob Ford is refusing to answer questions about the future of David Price, a top aide at the centre of a probe into several incidents of abusive behaviour at Georgetown GO station. “It’s actually no one’s business what happens in my office,” Ford said in response to questions from media Thursday afternoon about whether Price should remain as the mayor’s director of logistics and operations — a job that comes with an estimated $130,000 annual salary. “I take care of the people that work for me and they do a great job, as you see.” On Thursday, Torstar News Service revealed that Metrolinx, the GTA’s regional tran-

The most recent incident occurred on Aug. 27, in which Price, after missing the 7:41 a.m. train to Union Station, swore at a Metrolinx employee and broke one of the station’s

main doors, transit officials said. Station security cameras and a witness caught the incident on video. Torstar has viewed the video taken by the witness. Metrolinx is conducting an investigation and will share its results with Halton Regional Police, who will help determine if charges should be laid. Price did not respond to several calls and emails from Torstar between Tuesday and Thursday this week. Torstar left messages for the mayor’s chief of staff inquiring whether Price was still employed, but did not hear back. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Vaughan. Listeria found at daycare where toddler died Public health inspectors found listeria — potentially deadly bacteria — in a chicken stew, cooked grains and deli meats at an illegal Vaughan home daycare where a toddler died in July. Inspectors also found garbage with dirty diapers in the kitchen; expired or rotting food in the fridge and freezer; unsanitized toys; evidence of inadequate hand washing or dishwashing capacity, and other sanitation concerns in the home at 343 Yellowood Circle, according to the inspection report obtained under a Freedom of Informa-

tion request. Police noted that 14 dogs and nine children were found in a house next door to the unregulated home daycare where 2-year-old Eva Ravikovich died July 8, according to notes by York Region Public Health inspector Cameron Weighill. At least 35 children were registered at the daycare by the operator, who appeared to be caring for them in the two homes, York public health officials have said. The coroner has not yet determined a cause of death in the troubling case. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Leading figure in Toronto’s response to SARS dies at 68 One of the key figures in Canada’s battle against SARS has died.

GTA immigration detainees protest ‘unfair treatment’ Hunger strike. Inmates relocated to Lindsay, Ont., isolated from family, lawyers

Putting it all on the line for Easter Seals Jason Crone, 26, of Shallow Lake, Ont., rappels for the first time ever down the side of the CREIT head office at Bloor and Church on Thursday. More than 60 other brave Easter Seals fundraisers also rappelled the 17 stories down the side of the building in an attention-grabbing all-day event. David Van Dyke/Metro

GTA immigration detainees recently transferred to a jail in Lindsay, Ont., held a protest and staged a hunger strike this week over what they describe as unfair treatment. About 200 inmates being held in Greater Toronto have been relocated to the Central East Correctional Centre since August because of a coming closure of the Toronto West Detention Centre, a move critics say isolates the detainees and keeps them from receiving help and support. The detainees staged the protest at 11 a.m., Tuesday, ac-

cording to a memo from the Lindsay facility’s administration to the Canada Border Service Agency. Negotiators were brought in and the inmates returned to their cells at 10 p.m. Some have been on a hunger strike since Wednesday. “Basically, they were upset they had no access to anything; their family, legal counsel or any recreational program,” said a source who was informed about the situation. The detainees, deemed a flight risk while awaiting deportation, have complained about not being able to make phone calls to lawyers and families, frequent lockdowns due to short staff, and disregard of their dietary needs. “We have had a hard time communicating with our clients,” said Toronto immigration lawyer Guidy Mamann,

08 Ford Fest robocalls

Why should the 416 have all the fun with the Fords? Ford Fest is not just for Toronto residents anymore. As the season’s most anticipated opportunity to rub shoulders with Mayor Rob Ford moves out of his mother’s backyard and into Centennial Park, the invitation is being extended beyond the 416. Residents in Mississauga and Vaughan say they were surprised to receive a robocall from the city’s chief magistrate earlier this week, inviting them to partake in his family’s annual barbecue, scheduled for Friday at 6 p.m. According to Coun. Doug Ford, expanding the robocalling blitz to the 905 was no accident. The mayor’s brother said his family decided to include a few Mississauga postal codes this year because Centennial Park sits just outside the boundaries of the GTA city — and “Ford Nation is not just the 416.” torstar news service

Showbiz lobby goes after search engines in piracy battle Illegal downloads. Industry trying to drum up support for its cause among lawmakers in Washington The music and movie industries are sounding the alarm again on online piracy, saying illegal downloads are on the rise and search engines like Google aren’t doing enough to stop them. Entertainment executives say they have no intention of trying to revive failed U.S. legislation that would have imposed unprecedented regulations on Internet companies. That proposal last year prompted a fierce backlash from tech companies and activists who said it would damage the Internet as a

free and open enterprise. But the industry’s top lobbyists returned to Capitol Hill this week to try to renew interest in online piracy. They are distributing to sympathetic lawmakers their own research on what they say are the growing perils of piracy — some of which is contested by Internet activists — and telling Congress that Google and other search engines aren’t doing enough to redirect consumers away from known pirating sites. The suggestion was that private talks between entertainment executives and Google on anti-piracy efforts had failed to produce a solution, prompting two lobbying giants to make their case instead in news conferences and hearing rooms on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, while Google declined to comment. the associated press

By the numbers

• A study released this week by a London-based digital brand monitoring company called NetNames found that illegal content available on the Internet jumped some 159 per cent from 2010 to 2012. • Analysts came to that conclusion by reviewing the top 12,500 files out of 3.5 million on a public BitTorrent network to determine how many of them were legal. After omitting pornographic files, the group determined that 99.97 per cent of files shared using the popular peer-to-peer protocol were illegal.

Ottawa police released the names and ages of all six victims in Wednesday’s crash between an OC Transpo double decker bus and a VIA Rail train in Barrhaven. Numerous agencies and people in the community have been moved to express condolences to the families of the victims, and some families communicated statements about their loss through the Ottawa Police. Friends Connor Boyd and Kyle Nash both attended John McRae Secondary School before moving on to study at Carleton University. Boyd’s friend Kayla Bennett wrote on her Facebook page: “Connor Boyd you were such an amazing person. I have known you since elementary school. Everyone knows you by your laugh or how you knew everything about everything!! I can’t believe you are gone!! ... you will be missed.” On Thursday police released a series of statements from grieving families, includ-

ing Kyle Nash’s: “The family of Kyle Nash are devastated by his tragic and premature death. He was deeply loved. They thank everyone for their support and ask for privacy to grieve at this time.” A statement issued on behalf of Karen Krzyzewski’s family reads: “We are very saddened by the loss of Karen. She was a gentle spirit who was caring and compassionate to others. She loved life to the fullest. Karen was the mother of two young adult children. She is survived by her parents and a brother and two sisters. She will be mourned by family and many friends. Karen worked happily for 28 years at the Library and Archives Canada. She believed that libraries were an important part of Canadian culture ...” No family statements were released through police concerning the final two crash victims; Rob More, 35, and Michael Bleakney, 57. Bleakney’s Google Plus and LinkedIn profiles listed him as a geotechnical engineer at Public Works and Government Services Canada.

Grieving wife

Terry Woodard, whose husband, David Woodard, 46, was driving the bus Wednesday, spoke with AM 640’s John Oakley about the incident and about what her husband was like. • “David was in good health. He didn’t fall asleep at the wheel. He’s always rested the night before he goes to work. I don’t know what to say. Either he didn’t see the lights or the barricade wasn’t down just in time,” she said. • On Facebook, she wrote: “Ok...Today I lost my HUSBAND the love of my LIFE my best friend the father of my daughter and a great step DAD to the boys...I don’t know what to say...I want him back so much...MISS you BABY... be always in my prayers in my mind, but most of all in my is not the same without you here...”

his month, the TTC will carry its 29 billionth rider since its inception in 1921. At the TTC, we are very proud of this milestone and of the fact that we are carrying record numbers each and every day – 1.7 million rides and rising. Our annual ridership has just surpassed 521 million (already topping last year’s record total) and as Toronto grows, that figure will rise to a predicted 540 million trips by the end of next year. With rising ridership, however, comes increased cost as

we work to keep up with demand. More riders mean we need to add service, and that in turn means more vehicles, more operators, expanded garage space, and higher maintenance and fuel costs. For the past two years, the TTC’s subsidy has been frozen while ridership has grown. This equates to a decrease in subsidy per rider of 16 per cent to a figure that is the lowest of any major North American or European transit system. The TTC has found efficiencies within the organization to allow it to keep pace

with service demand while focusing more clearly on basic customer care. We will continue to look for efficiencies, but a third successive year of a subsidy decrease is simply not tenable. In this year’s budget negotiations with the City, I will make a strong argument for an increase to our subsidy that will enable us to maintain your service and also limit any fare increase to the rate of inflation. Effective public transit benefits everyone. It is time to restore sustainable funding to keep Toronto moving.



On a busy day, each representative at the TTC’s Customer Information Centre can field over 100 calls, ranging from lost articles to the best way to get from Point A to Point B. With operator-assisted service available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (except statutory holidays) and recorded information available 24 hours daily, TTC staff provide important information to customers travelling on the TTC and beyond.

Dear TTC, I’ve been trying to figure this one out for years. Why do the trains go so slowly between Eglinton and Davisville and Davisville and St Clair, both southbound and northbound? Marlene Marlene, Track ballast, as it’s called, is typically comprised of crushed stone and provides the trackbed foundation. Packed below and around railroad ties, it supports the load from the track, while facilitating the drainage of water. Over time, ballast will wear and like any aging infrastructure, it needs to be replaced. The existing ballast between St Clair and Eglinton Stations is now 60 years old and is listed as a priority track improvement within our state-of-good-repair program. With ballast replacement requiring the suspension of subway service, significant planning is well under way to minimize the impact on customers. In the meantime, trains travel through the area at a reduced speed. While we are keen on providing fast, reliable service, safety is always our number one priority. Once we have a firm timeline – dates and how long the work will take – we’ll be fully communicating that information to you and all of our valued customers. • Do you have a question for the TTC? Send an email to

During one call, a customer asks how to travel from Toronto to a location in Mississauga. Immediately, staff work to identify the quickest route to Islington Station – a connecting point to Mississauga Transit. After relaying the instructions, they politely transfer the customer’s call to representatives at Mississauga Transit, to ensure they have all the information they need to complete their journey. While the TTC has expanded its customer outreach, providing service advisories through e-Alerts, Twitter, Onestop platform screens and our website, the reassuring voice of a live operator remains a valuable asset. Providing service in over 70 languages, including a TTY Hearing Impaired Service (offered daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., except statutory holidays), the TTC takes pride in assisting all customers who travel on our system.

Pope warns church must find balance Vatican City. The Pope’s progressive vision contrasts with predecessors John Paul II and Benedict XVI. Pope Francis has warned that the Catholic Church’s moral structure might “fall like a

house of cards” if it doesn’t balance its divisive rules about abortion, gays and contraception with the greater need to make it a merciful, more welcoming place for all. Six months into his papacy, Francis set out his vision for the church and his priorities as pope in a lengthy and remarkably blunt interview with La Civilta Cattolica, the

In the article, Francis expands on his groundbreaking comments over the summer about gays and acknowledges some of his own faults.

Valdai, Russia. No gay discrimination, but hetero is better: Putin

Request for Volunteers

To facilitate community input into planning, development, and implementation of accessible transit, the Toronto Transit Commission relies on the TTC Advisory Committee on Accessible Transit (ACAT).

President Vladimir Putin denied Thursday that gays face discrimination in Russia, saying a new law that has drawn protests worldwide does not infringe on their rights. Putin maintained the law bans only “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations among minors.” The Russian law has prompted calls for boycotts of the 2014 Winter Olympics

hosted by Russia in Sochi. Putin said while some European nations have allowed gay marriages, “the Europeans are dying out ... and gay marriages don’t produce children.” The new Russian law imposes fines for individuals and organizations. Foreigners could face prison sentences of up to 15 days. the associated press

When the rain-soaked hillside gave way, it swept up Gomez in a wave of dirt that covered her entirely, leaving only a small air pocket between her and her baby. Eventually, relatives came from a nearby house and dug her out. She never saw her father again.

Apology. Coca-Cola cancels promotion that produced ‘retard’ cap

‘Racially offensive’. Ottawa football team to drop Redskins name, logo

Coca-Cola issued a written apology Thursday to the Alberta family that found a vitamin water cap bearing the words “you retard” as part of a promotion the company has now cancelled. “This word should not have been included due to the English connotations and we have taken action,” David Thomson, vice-president of still beverages for Coca-Cola Canada, wrote in a Sept. 19 letter to Doug Loates. “This includes cancelling the promotion, stopping production of bottles with these caps and destroying any remaining caps within our inventory.” The nationwide promotion saw a random English word followed by a random French word written on the inside of bottle caps. “Retard” had made the list of appropriate French words, as the context was intended to mean “late.” The French word “douche,” meaning shower, was also the subject of a separate complaint.

Canada’s classical vocal quartet The Tenors taught four-part harmony in rural Kenya recently, coaching high-achieving girls at Free the Children’s Kisaruni Girls High School how to belt out a tune. And not just any tune, but the Leonard Cohen classic Hallelujah. • Remigio Pereira, Victor Micallef, Fraser Walters and Clifton Murray divided the 80 eager girls into four groups and each Tenor taught his part of the song to his group. They then came together to sing as one powerful voice. • Murray spoke of how inspiring it was to “share the international language of music with girls who have faced their share of hardship.” But through education, and a song in their hearts, he said, they are tomorrow’s leaders.

Certain life lessons are universal: “Treat others how you want to be treated”; “Everything happens for a reason”; “Don’t put aluminum foil in the microwave.” Then there are moments of personal triumph or tragedy that come with unforeseen life lessons. One such moment found me halfway up Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania. About 2,500 metres into our 5,895-metre Kilimanjaro climb, I felt like I’d been hit by a truck. After four consecutive days of waking with the sun to trek through challenging climates, we’d reached the alpine desert — scorching heat and arctic chill — and Africa’s tallest peak had taken its toll. Up to this point I’d been climbing on my hands. My shoulders, elbows and wrists were waging war with my body, begging me to

stop. My best friends, David and Alex, would have to carry me in an apparatus that had been custom-built for the occasion of my defeat. The mountain had won. Then came summit day. David and Alex were in rough shape, having lost the contents of their stomachs to altitude sickness. Physically, I felt fine. I guess being 2’7” finally paid off. Mentally, I was struggling with something I’ll never forget. For the first time in my life

I wished I had legs, not for my sake, but because I wanted to be able to carry my friends like they had carried me. Evidently, my fairy godmother had the day off. Instead, I did the only thing I could do. I spoke from the heart, expressing words of encouragement the entire way to the top to keep their spirits up and their minds distracted from the gruelling monotony of putting one foot in front of the other.

I became the best damn cheerleader that mountain had ever seen. And I carried them, emotionally speaking. The lesson? Always exercise in oxygen-rich environments. No, really, it’s this: I didn’t fail for being carried; I succeeded when I asked for help, and then I returned the favour. Nobody achieves anything exceptional on their own. I learned the importance of having others who believe in you. For 57 million children around the world who are denied access to education, the ability to read, write and receive formal job training are lost. But those children might also be denied moments of sudden, unexpected inspiration that come from the encouragement of their peers, life lessons they would have learned

from exposure to alternative perspectives, and mentorship opportunities from teachers. An entire ecosystem of support is also lost. For me, part of being educated means having the confidence to believe in yourself and the humility to ask for help. It’s the ability to recognize teachable moments and extract moral lessons. Education is the implicit knowledge that somebody believes in you, will celebrate your successes and shoulder your mistakes. Education is mentorship; it’s the confidence that teachers instil in students so that when students graduate, they no longer need their teachers. Education is sustainability. We are in danger of losing this social capital, and 57 million life lessons.

Learning comes in many forms, whether it’s the formal education of schooling or the lessons gleaned from volunteer work. Here are a few stories of how Free the Children is impacting people’s educations:

Single mom at 12, Rahab Sopiato leaves her charcoal-making days behind for a new career Rahab Sopiato, 40, gave birth to the first of three children when she was just 12. She bursts out laughing when asked what happened to the father, but makes it clear that he didn’t stick around, so she scratched out a living making charcoal. It was gruelling, hopeless work in the Maasai community of Kajiado, located a three-day walk south of Nairobi in Kenya’s Rift Valley. To make charcoal, Sopiato scavenged branches and chopped them into pieces. Then she covered the pile in leaves and set it alight, before burying it in dirt. The heap smouldered. In three days’ time, she had charcoal briquettes, enough to fill one sack. The market was three hours away, so she borrowed a neighbour’s donkey to get there. If she was lucky, she sold the sack for 100 Kenyan shillings, enough to buy corn flour to make a thin porridge for her children. If she wasn’t, she returned home with the sack but no food for dinner. She repeated the process of making charcoal and trudging to market for three decades. She says she was very thin and sickly; so were her children. She couldn’t afford to send her eldest daughter to high school, which in Kenya can cost the equivalent of $350 Canadian a year. A high school education in Kenya is thought to be the golden ticket to a better life. She hated that she couldn’t provide that. Then two years ago, Sopiato heard about Me to We Artisans,

Education helps you manifest your destiny, Maasai man teaches suburban teen It was the summer of 2011, and I was 16 years old when my outlook on life took a turn. I found myself in Kenya for three weeks with Free the Children, and our mission was simple: help build a school for the children who lived in the rural region of the Maasai Mara. Our Maasai guide, whose English name was Steven, caught me alone with my thoughts as the sun set. What began as an earnest conversation about our respective lives turned into an image I’ve carried with me ever since. Steven told me that life is a lottery; a game of chance. The situation a person is born into is a matter of luck, and destiny has nothing to do with it. Steven talked about the control we must exert over our lives and that destiny plays no part in the outcome. His dream was to get an education, so he could become more than a cattle herder — the traditional role of a Maasai man. The point: Whether it is rural Kenya or the suburbs of Toronto, an education opens us up to a larger world than the one we were born into. And that gives us the power to choose the life we want to lead. My conversation with Steven left me with many thoughts, but one prevailing theme: Although where we find ourselves at birth may be a matter of chance, an ted contribu education puts us on our life’s path.

Gratitude learned through carrying water It usually happens when I turn on the tap. As the water comes out, so do memories of my three overseas trips with Me to We. This year was Ghana. I was there to help build a school. It was amazing to watch mothers and women of the Assemkow community continuously walk back and forth with huge pans of water on their heads. I tried carrying just a small one and it was so difficult. I don’t know how they do it so easily, let alone with no hands. ted contribu To think that the water they are carrying is not even clean really got to me. They go through all this work to have access to dirty water for drinking, bathing and doing laundry, yet back at home I simply turn on the tap and clean water comes rushing out. It was actually too much water that created a challenge in Assemkow. Free the Children already had two buildings up. The community already had two kindergarten classes, but they were not running because a storm had ripped off the roof of the building, so they had no choice but to shut it down. We helped get that roof up and the school running in no time, but it was mostly the community that made it happen. I am now more cautious about everything I do and waste as little as possible. Overall, the trip has inspired me to save water and to be way more grateful with all I have. Madison Jameson, me to we volunteer in Ghana

‘Education breaks the cycle of poverty’: Kenyan man becomes the first in his family to attend university The aspirations of many boys are carried on the slight shoulders of 22-year-old Bernard Rotich. So when he qualified for university, the people of his remote community in rural Kenya pooled their resources to pay his tuition. He is now in his third year at Nairobi University studying to be a high school teacher while taking accounting courses on the side. A member of the pastoral Kipsigis people, Rotich comes from a family of farmers. Growing up in Emori Joi, located in Kenya’s Rift Valley, Rotich’s first school was overcrowded and mud-walled. Then

Free the Children rebuilt Emori Joi Primary School with brick and tin. Rotich attended this school in Grade 8 before earning his way to high school, which in Kenya requires an entrance exam and payment of school fees. In high school, he finished second in a class of 60 in the national exam. “I believe education breaks the cycle of poverty,” he says. “Since Free the Children came, we have transformed ourselves, our community.” The school now has nine classrooms, a kitchen and a library. More than 530 children attend the school. Families from the community have formed a group that pays the administrative fee for exams and the yearly fees to attend high school and university. Based on the merry-go-round model introduced by Free the Children, struggling families get a generous sum of money from a pot to use to improve their livelihoods. Rotich says six other students, a mix of boys and girls, have graduated from university, while another 13 are currently attending. Once he attains his degree, Rotich hopes to return to his community to teach. He was inspired to become a teacher by the teachers who encouraged him. But he is also taking business classes so he can have as many options as possible. “I want a very flexible career. I know I am a role model to many.” Shelley Page/free the children/for metro

His mother had paid $10 for his first manufactured garment: a comfortable — and safe — leather jacket. “One of our colleagues didn’t have a bodyguard, and didn’t wear any body armor as he found it uncomfortable. That sparked my idea to create light, yet protective clothing,” Caballero tells Metro. Caballero, whose business is based in Mexico City, says that the United States is his main

Gen Y’ers aid Syrian refugees Jordan. As their leaders dither over Syria, Western 20-somethings roll up their sleeves to help country’s refugees ELISABETH BRAW

Metro World News

Every morning, Dina ElKassaby heads to the refugee camp in Zaatari, Jordan. The enormous site, located seven kilometres across the Syrian border, requires an enormous staff. It has quickly grown from nothing to housing some 150,000 Syrian refugees in one year. And they have nowhere to go. El-Kassaby, a 22-year-old from Vancouver, is one of the surprising number of young Westerners who have opted to work there. “There’s a stereotype that refugees are lazy,” she says. “That’s false as far as Syrians are concerned. There are nurses, teachers, lawyers and truck drivers here. Almost everyone I talk to asks about work opportunities. Women are well educated too.” Down Zaatari’s main thoroughfare, refugees have set up myriad unofficial shops, selling everything from shampoo to wedding dresses. They call the dusty patch the “Champs Elysees.” Perhaps it’s this civilized aspect of the Syrian conflict that inspires young Westerners to help: After all, until a year ago the refugees lived middle-class lives not unlike ours. Or perhaps it’s the recognition that we could find ourselves in the same situa-

tion. Or is it shame over the fact that 100,000 Syrians have been killed, more than 4.2 million people are displaced within Syria and two million have fled to other countries, while the West dithers over a course of action? David Lampert, an 18-yearold from Vermont, asked his online Arabic teacher how to volunteer in Jordan, and travelled to the town of Mafraq near Jordan’s border with Syria. “I just wanted to help the Syrian people,” he explains as I meet him at the local church. Mafraq, a town of 60,000, now houses some 20,000 Syrian refugees. The church, supported by Mercy Corps, an NGO, provides necessities like

• Job surplus. With many aid workers returning home after several years or just several months, there’s plenty of turnover. That means lots of job openings. • Job site. Visit, which lists virtually every aid worker opening, from a communications internship at the UN Refugee Agency to multi-year postings for managers. You can search by level of work experi-


food and blankets to newly arrived families, as well as a safe space for children and parents to rest. Canadian Haitham Betts, 23, also helps out at the church, doing odd jobs and simply spending time with the new arrivals. “Helping people when they’re in a crisis situation is so important to them on a personal level,” he says. Of the UN World Food Programme’s staff of 80 in Jordan, 33 are aged 35 or younger — nine of them Westerners. Mercy Corps reports that 80 per cent of its volunteers are 35 and under. Of course, this hugely complex and fast-moving

refugee crisis isn’t managed by 20-somethings. “It’s important to remember that the people in charge are officials with long-time emergency experience,” notes Marc Vergara, UNICEF’s Head of Communications in Jordan. And local Jordanian staff carry out a wide range of tasks, from delivering food to mounting tents. But the young Westerners are right here on the ground, providing a crucial service to thousands of desperate people. “I want people at home to understand the horrific levels of violence going on in Syria, and how terribly difficult it is to pack up and leave,” Aoife McConnell, a 27-year-old UN

Getting by at a camp is a hospital. With a little help “Now good time to from Italian friends get in there” Above the thousands of sandcoloured tents in Zaatari flies an Italian flag. It’s the Italian hospital: Seven doctors, 10 nurses and one dentist work in the modest building. “We have around 700 patients per week,” Dr. Basham Anakrih, a Jordanian surgeon, tells me as I visit. As we speak, a man in a wheelchair is brought in by his son; he hands Anakrih a prescription that needs to be signed. The young doctor asks him a few questions and signs the form. Meanwhile, in an-

other surgical room — closed only by a curtain — a colleague of Anakrih circumcises a baby boy. Though the hospital is small — the camp’s French and Moroccan hospitals have beds — it performs a crucial service to the Zaatari camp. “All equipment is paid for by Italy,” explains Anakrih as he proudly shows me the hospital’s incubator and X-ray machine. Jordan provides the hospital staff. ELISABETH BRAW/METRO WORLD NEWS


Syria and the region are Level 3 (the highest UN emergency level). That means that UN agencies worldwide are asked to supply staff, because they need people with experience in emergencies or technical skills like water and sanitation. UNICEF usually has

15 people in Jordan — now we’re at 50. The UN will make many of the staff assisting Syrian refugees permanent. Right now we’re planning for the next two to three years. Of course we can only guess how many refugees will cross the border to Jordan, but our estimate is that we’ll have one million refugees here next year. Both the UN and the NGOs are looking for people with the skills I mentioned, so now is a good time to try to get in if you have the expertise. In addition to full-time staff, the UN and NGOs also have staff on a consulting basis.

Ford’s investment in the Oakville plant west of Toronto is creating hope among union members and industry watchers that more jobs may come to Canada as demand for cars rebounds to pre-recession levels. The automaker announced Thursday it was putting $700 million in the plan with the help of government funds in a move it called a “win for everyone” as well as a sign of the company’s dedication to Canadian manufacturing. “Today’s announcement is significant for Ford because

it’s about solidifying jobs and about becoming more competitive than ever before right here in Canada,” Ford president for the Americas, Joe Hinrichs, said during a news conference in Oakville. “Not only is this investment helping us to find much-needed capacity for global product and securing these great jobs, it’s also positioning Oakville as one of the more competitive and important manufacturing fa-

cilities in the Ford global manufacturing system.” While the investment doesn’t create any new jobs, it will secure those of the 2,800 employees currently at the plant. Anthony Faria, an automotive expert at the University of Windsor, said Ford’s level of investment means those jobs should remain safe for at least 10 years, but that new product would have to come into the factory for new positions to be created since the vehicles currently built at Oakville aren’t big sellers.

“I was writing a book on charnel houses when I came across these skeletons. As I discovered more about them I had this feeling that it was my duty to tell their fascinating story.” Paul Koudounaris, Los Angeles-based art historian

They are just part of the community Koudounaris underscores how the skeletons had more of a civil duty than a spiritual function. “They were thought to be miraculous and really solidified people’s bond with a town. This reaffirmed the prestige of the town,” he said. METRO

SCENE WEEKEND, September 20-22, 2013



• Richard: ••••• • Mark: •••••

Hugh Jackman pulls out claws of a different kind for Prisoners.

Reel Guys


How far would you go? Prisoners. Hugh Jackman shines as a volatile vigilante in this film about fractured families searching for justice Richard: Mark, Death Wish — the Charles Bronson revenge drama — painted its main character as a vigilante hero, someone who evened the score when the police couldn’t. Prisoners isn’t as cut and dried. It asks the question, how far would you go to get the information you need to protect your family? As played by Hugh Jackman, Keller Dover is a conflicted man.

I think he knows what he’s doing is wrong, but doesn’t see a choice. Either way, it’s going to get audiences talking about the ethics of vigilantism. What did you think? Mark: There will be a lot of debate about the rougher scenes in this film. But it’s a debate that has been in the news all through Jack Bauer’s similar dilemma in 24 and the American waterboarding controversy. It probably goes back to Machiavelli and his “ends justifies the means” dictum. But no matter which side you are on this is a gripping thriller that didn’t let me go for its full two and a half hour running time. RC: It is good stuff, but it al-

most felt like two movies to me. The first hour-and-a-half is a good family drama about a man pushed to extremes after the disappearance of his daughter, while the last hour feels different. I don’t want to give anything away, but it becomes more like an episode of Criminal Minds than the first part. I enjoyed both halves, but I preferred the complexity of the family drama. MB: I guess the long first half gives it the depth so the second half feels more than an episode of Criminal Minds. It requires great acting, which it has, although seeing Hugh Jackman in the lead, I kept expecting him to burst into song in the first half hour. Did you like Paul Dano?

Keller and Grace Dover (Hugh Jackman and Maria Bello), Franklin and Nancy Birch (Terrence Howard and Viola Davis) and their kids spend Thanksgiving together. After dinner the youngest members of the family, Anna Dover (Erin Gerasimovich) and Joy Birch (Kyla Drew Simmons) go for a walk and never return. The police, led by Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal), arrest a suspect, Alex Jones (Paul Dano) who Keller is convinced is guilty. When Alex is released, Keller takes matters into his own hands. Kidnapping Jones, he tries to beat a confession out of him. When that doesn’t work his methods escalate.

Should he send Brad Dourif a cut of his paycheque? RC: I thought the performances were uniformly strong. We’re used to seeing Jackman differently — as a superhero or as a 19th century balladeer — but here he’s really volatile and powerful. Dano takes a tough, thankless role and in the little screen time he isn’t chained up or worse (no spoilers here!) keeps us wondering about the guilt or innocence of his character. MB: There are a lot of plot twists in this movie and Dano’s character is only one of them. This is the kind of movie you should see with an empty bladder because you won’t want to miss any tricks.

••• • •

Crunch and Nicky Calhoun (Kurt Russell and Matt Dillon) are brothers and art thieves who haven’t worked together since Nicky snitched on Crunch and sent him to prison. Years later they team up to steal one of the world’s rarest books, but will the job lead to more double-crossing? Or a taste of revenge? Jay Baruchel and Terence Stamp co-star in this twistyturny movie that mixes laughs with intrigue, crime with revenge to present an original and offbeat heist flick.

In what is a fictional reimagining of his own documentary Planet B-Boy (which he conveniently references throughout), Benson Lee’s Battle of the Year tells the story of an American breakdancing “dream team” who compete against odds for the world’s title. With predictably formulaic plotting and characters as cardboard as a breakdancer’s podium, Battle at least has some amazing dance and choreography. It’s just too bad those sequences appear edited together by a speedfreak with a penchant for cutaways.

Has anybody in the movies ever happened upon a large sum of money and gone on to live happily ever after? Things haven’t been going well for John Moon (Sam Rockwell). He’s been bouncing from job to job ever since the bank foreclosed on his farm, spending occasional weekends in jail whenever he gets caught poaching deer up at the nature conservancy. Life goes from crummy to downright miserable when another illegal hunting trip ends with John accidentally shooting a young woman dead. There are plenty of grimy characters but precious little suspense. Sean Burns

••••• Hugh Hefner may hog the spotlight when it comes to being the sultan of skin mags but director Barry Avrich aims to adjust that thinking with this doc. Filthy Gorgeous charts the ascent of painter turned photographer turned porn mogul Bob Guccione and his raunchier-than-Playboy U.K.-forged nudie bible Penthouse.

Good Ol’ Freda

Director. Jerusha Hess

Director. Ryan White

Stars. Keri Russell, Jane Seymour

Stars. Freda Kelly, Tony Barrow

••• • •


Fandom makes people do weird things. In Austenland, Jane Hayes (Keri Russell) blows her savings on a Jane Austen “experience” run by Jane Seymour in a bid to meet her own Mr. Darcy. Predictably things don’t pan out and Jane finds herself caught in a modern Pride & Prejudice situation, held back by her social status and falling for the wrong guy. It’s a clever set up, but writer-director Jerusha Hess can’t seem to break out of the rote romantic comedy box. Worse, the jokes fail to yield any laughs.

In the breezy Beatlesbased film Good Ol’ Freda, a Liverpudlian sexagenarian reflects upon her decade-long gig as secretary to the Fab Four’s quickly growing fan club. While the primarily first-person perspective may be most exclusively enticing to Beatles fans, Freda Kelly’s humble tales are still modestly entertaining even if there is one noticeable absence: If Good Ol’ Freda was authentic enough to warrant a documentary, then surely she deserves a few words from Paul or Ringo. steve gow

Currency crisis

Our Man in Tehran



Director. Drew Taylor, Larry Weinstein

Director. Michael Jorgensen

Director. Shane Salerno

Stars. Tom Faunce, Ed Mahoney

Stars. Philip Seymour Hoffman, Edward Norton



As stunning as John Hartley Robertson’s story is, the real heart to the documentary Unclaimed is found in its Vietnam veteran narrator Tom Faunce — who set out in 2008 to return to America a man claiming to be a soldier lost during the Vietnam War. Emotionally-charged and provocative (some say the man is faking Robertson’s identity), if nothing else, Unclaimed is sure to leave even unconvinced audiences heartbroken and a little weepy.

Documentaries on artists need not necessarily resemble their subjects’ work. But it’s unlikely that there’s a film about J.D. Salinger that the author would have hated more than Salinger, stylistically speaking. This is a standard expository doc of overly dramatic music cues, filled with constant inserts of an actor furiously typing away while chain-smoking. It’s the kind of film that would have inspired rude words from his most signature creation.

Stars. Ken Taylor, Tony Mendez


Few directors could intertwine mirth and melancholy like Zachary Heinzerling does in Cutie and the Boxer. Focused on the long-time marriage between octogenarian “boxing” painter Ushio Shinohara and his younger wife (also an aspiring artist), this documentary subtly interplays the power struggles of relationships and explores the sacrifices made in matrimony and art. Mostly for a modest movie however, it certainly says loads about love.

For those proud Canadians seeking affirmation after Ben Affleck’s Argo downplayed the role of Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor during the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis, Our Man in Tehran aims to clear up the confusion. While its talking head-heavy approach surely gives a more rounded education on the entire mess (and many of the others involved), its revelations aren’t exactly astounding. Still, the personalities are honest, engaging and straight to the point.

Doing justice to a Wilde romance Rush. Olivia Wilde wanted to show the love model Suzy Miller had for James Hunt during their short marriage Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

Olivia Wilde was more than happy to show up for Rush — even if her part only took nine days to film — just to get a chance to be directed by Ron Howard. In the film, Wilde plays Suzy Miller, a high-society fashion model briefly married to Formula 1 driver James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth). Nice work if you can get it. You don’t get a lot of screen time to get this

character across. Yeah, she’s there to serve a purpose — I think to show a bit of James Hunt’s personal life, which was tumultuous. I loved the way that he charmed Suzy. She wasn’t just impressed by his fame or looks, it was the way he approached her with such fearless romanticism. She’s a really interesting woman. She remembers James very fondly, which was a big clue for me. I wanted to do justice to the love story that I believe existed between them. She had a great career and certainly didn’t marry him for his money. They married out of a spontaneous romantic spirit, and I really wanted that to show. I think in retrospect she really loved him and was glad they had that time together. You’re playing a famous woman who has to deal with a lot of attention from the press and paparazzi, some-

What Wilde wants

Wilde says she’d love to get into directing. “I made a short years ago. It was my first foray into it and it kind of gave me confidence to do it again in a bigger way,” Wilde says of stepping behind the camera. “It let me know that I’ve never been happier than when I was on set directing. It just finally felt like I put on shoes that fit. I was determined to do it again, but with the right story that I wrote — it must be a different skill to direct someone else’s script. I would like to try that, but I think the next one will be something I write. I’m working on that now.”

thing you do quite well in your own life. I try. I think maintaining an outsider’s perspective of it is important, understanding

Olivia Wilde plays model Suzy Miller in Rush, which opens next Friday. contributed

how odd it is and not letting it feel like a personal attack on you but understanding it as its own bizarre industry — and a necessary evil for certain parts of this job. But the darker side of that, the kind of stalking, is just strange. I think you have to maintain a sense of humour about it or you’ll go crazy. I think I get it easier than a lot of other people, so I try not to complain. But there

are moments when you’re just overwhelmed by it. But who knows? My hope is that with social-networking and Facebook culture everybody’s turning themselves into a celebrity, and maybe the complete lack of privacy for everyone will backfire and people won’t support the industry that specializes in stalking. That would be nice.

Yeah, it could happen. It’s very weird; I’ve now developed a sense — I can hear a shutter from a really long distance. It would be wiser for them to have silencers because that’s usually how I figure out where they are. It’s an interesting thing because if I’m with my sister I’ll say, “Wait…” and I can hear it and she can’t. I’m like a dog with a whistle; it’s pathetic.

Kate Winslet is going to stay Kate Winslet Despite marrying Ned Rocknroll last year, Kate Winslet won’t be taking his name, as she “was never going to change my name to Rocknroll,” she tells the Telegraph. And apparently it has nothing to do with how ridiculous her husband’s legally changed name might sound. Winslet reasons that she didn’t change her name when married to Jim Threapleton or Sam Mendes, either. “I quite like Kate

Winslet. In fact I think it’s very flashy,” she says. “I’m proud of my name because I’m one of three girls and we have one boy in our family so essentially the only person who is going to carry the name along is my brother and he doesn’t have any children at the moment.” Winslet, who is already mother to Mia Threapleton, 12, and Joe Mendes, 9, is currently pregnant with her first child with Rocknroll.

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson have been together for seven years, making them one of Hollywood’s more successful couples. But their first date was so awful, he’s lucky he ever got to see her again. “He thinks he asked me out on a date, which is not true, because I did not agree to that. I agreed to have drinks with him,” Kruger said during an appearance on Conan on Tuesday.

Through the power of an eager expression and a clean shirt, Jackson managed to turn drinks into dinner — where, the German beauty says, he talked about himself for an hour and a half, in a restaurant that made her ill. “It was overgrown with beautiful flowers, to which I had a huge allergic reaction — like really, really bad.

In her post-rehab bid to stay clean, Lindsay Lohan has apparently found the right kind of partner. The troubled starlet is reportedly dating former football player Matt Nordgren, according to Us Weekly. “He’s a great influence on her, and her friends and family love him,” a source says. “He’s older, a successful businessman and he has been a great friend to her. He’s also a Christian and won’t drink around her. He’s trying to keep her sober and on the straight and narrow. He’s really good for her.”

If I learned one thing about South Africa when I was touring its Cape vineyards a few years ago, it was that its population is gaga for grilling. They love it so much that the country’s national holiday is called National Braai Day. Sosaties is a South African twist on the Mediterranean kebab that typically skewers lamb, apricots and curry powder. Liquid partners don’t come easy. Even if it’s deployed lightly, the curry makes this dish a wine pairing challenge. While an off-dry, white wine made with riesling or chenin blanc will hold up well when your plate throws some heat, sauvignon blancled white blends are a less conventional, though equally accommodating, choice. The Beach House 2012 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon ($9.95 to $11.99) combines bright, citrusy flavours with a soft, tropical undercurrent that makes a great mate for shellfish and the spicy side of Sosaties’ personality.

3. Add the meat to the mixture and marinate for 24 hours in the fridge, stirring two or three times. 4. If the apricots are not soft,

Jones covers trinity of topics ahead of UFC 165 MMA. Champ talks faith, sponsors and beating Gustafsson A smiling Jon (Bones) Jones walked on to a makeshift stage Thursday to confront underdog challenger Alexander (The Mauler) Gustafsson. Always thinking of a new angle, Jones was wielding a smartphone in front of him. His view of the square-off would soon be posted on Instagram, the UFC light-heavyweight champion told the media in front of him. Jones (18-1) took to social media soon after, managing to squeeze a biblical verse, Nike

Not impressed

“He’s a good puncher, he has pretty good footwork. Not a great boxer.” UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who seemed less than impressed by Alexander Gustafsson’s striking at Thursday’s press conference.

and Gatorade into the same tweet. “There is nothing special about me, I just work extremely hard,” he wrote. “Anything can happen.” A picture below showed a smiling Jones, a Nike swoosh prominent on his hoodie, pointing to a bottle of Gatorade — his latest sponsor. To further make his point, he added Philippians 4:13 and the hashtags for both companies.

Fighter, man of faith and six-foot-four, 205-pound billboard, Jones is currently the brightest star in mixed martial arts. A victory at UFC 165 Saturday and Jones will set the record for most consecutive title defences (six) in UFC light-heavyweight history. He already holds the record for most submissions (five) by a light-heavyweight and is tied for most finishes (nine).

About the only people who believe Gustafsson can win are those in the challengers’ camp. Gustafsson, a lanky, likable Swede with battered ears, doesn’t think he is being disrespected. “Not at all. I don’t take anything personally. I don’t read too much. I don’t think too much. I’m going to go in there and shock the world on Saturday,” he said. Jones, 26, believes this defence will go the way of all the others. “I think I have a lot more tools in this fight to win the fight,” he said. The bookies have made Jones anywhere from a 9-1 to 20-1 favourite to beat Gustafsson. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Oilers keep RNH in offensive fold The Edmonton Oilers have taken another step in locking up their young core by signing Ryan NugentHopkins to a seven-year contract. Nugent-Hopkins got US$42 million, the same amount the Oilers gave Taylor Hall on his sevenyear deal. The $6-million cap hit is also the same as Jordan Eberle’s, making for uniformity among Edmonton’s top young forwards. Nugent-Hopkins underwent surgery on his left shoulder April 23 to repair a torn labrum and is unsure if he can start the NHL season. THE CANADIAN PRESS

2016 retirement? Not so fast: Bolt Quick as can be, Usain Bolt is backtracking on his retirement plans. Less than three weeks ago, the Olympic champion said he planned to stop sprinting after the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. But the Jamaican said on Thursday he was looking to extend his career by a year, meaning he could quit after the 2017 world championships in London. “I am definitely reconsidering,” the 27-year-old Bolt said while in London on a book-promotion tour. “I think my fans especially have really voiced their concern about me retiring. “They think I should carry on and so do my sponsors. I have discussed it with my coach and he says it is possible. We will see what happens but it’s on the cards that I will extend it by one more year.” The 2020 Tokyo Olympics are not in his thoughts. “It’s a long way away, but if I win the next Olympics I will have done everything I wanted to do in my career,” Bolt said. “So there would be no reason to continue.” The Associated Press

David Bolland scored the winner midway through the third period Thursday night while Mason Raymond chipped in with a goal and an assist as the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Ottawa Senators 3-2 in NHL pre-season action. With his back to the net, Bolland scored on a backhand at 10:25 of the third period to send the Leafs (2-0-1) to victory. Nazem Kadri had the other Toronto goal. Fredrik Claesson and Andre Petersson replied for the Senators (2-1-0) while Patrick Wiercioch had two assists. Jonathan Bernier started in goal for the Leafs but was replaced by Drew MacIntyre,

NFL. Bills’ Super Mario on like Donkey Kong Super Mario is back, and the New York Jets are well aware. They’ve watched the game film. Several times. Mario Williams was all over the place in a dominant performance in the Buffalo Bills’ win over the Carolina Panthers last Sunday. He had a franchise-record 4 1/2 sacks, and looked very much like the game-changing force Buffalo has expected him to be since signing him to a huge deal last year. “He’s one of those dualtype defensive ends who has it all,” Jets right tackle Austin Howard said Thursday. “He has speed and can get your edge pretty good with his speed and athleticism, and at the same time, he’s really strong, so he can get you really good with a power move.” That’s been the book on Williams throughout his career, including his first six NFL seasons with Houston when he made two Pro Bowl teams and was one of the league’s most feared defensive players. “God touched this guy,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said. “Like, gave him unbelievable gifts. He’s got the height, the size, the length, the arms, the speed. That’s kind of what jumps out.

“And he plays hard, he’s smart.” Buffalo made him the NFL’s first $100-million defensive player before last season, and the expectations skyrocketed. He had 10 1/2 sacks, which wasn’t too shabby, but he wasn’t as effective as the Bills imagined, and a wrist injury didn’t help matters. With a new defensive co-ordinator in Mike Pettine this season, Williams seems to be pretty comfortable. The AFC East rivals will square off Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J.

March 21 - April 20 It’d be smart to keep your opinions to yourself over the next 24 hours, but it’s unlikely you will. Maybe it’s for the best. Maybe it’s time you lay down the law. But make sure you stick to the law too.


April 21 - May 21 You’re not allowed to fail. At least that’s what you tell yourself. The planets say different — they say you’re human like everyone else.


May 22 - June 21 Mercury, your ruler, is at odds with Pluto, planet of excess, which means you will most likely open your mouth and put both feet in it — again. Just be careful what you say does not cost you some serious money.


June 22 - July 23 You want to be totally honest but you fear that if you speak your mind it will be taken as a declaration of war by certain people. What of it? That’s their problem, not yours. Speak up.


July 24 - Aug. 23 There is something that needs to be cut out of your life and if you don’t get rid of it now, you may be stuck with it forever. Pluto power will help you to be ruthless today.


Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 You may be in the minority as far as certain viewpoints are concerned but according to the planets you are on the side of the angels, so stop worrying about what others might think and do what you know to be right.

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 Libra is a cardinal sign, which among other things means you enjoy arguing about controversial issues. Today though, you must make sure that all your facts are just that.


Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 You’ll shock people with what you say, and with the forthright way in which you say it. Pluto, your ruler, is moving in your favour again, so chances are you’ll get away with it.


Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 Why are you so scared to make contact with new people? Whatever the reason, get over it because you will meet some interesting characters today — the kind who can open doors and swell your bank balance.


Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 You have every right to express your opinions but don’t forget others have a right to disagree with you. Some of the feedback you get today may not be favourable but it will make you think and that’s good.


Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 Try not to get bogged down in details. Once you look closely at one thing, you will start looking closely at everything, and there’s just no need. You’re a “big picture” person, so leave the small stuff to others.


Feb. 20 - March 20 Don’t waste time explaining to others why you decided on a certain course of action. Either they don’t understand or they think it will inconvenience them. SALLY BROMPTON
