L

ast week I was on about the need for health care changes in Quebec. Every time I look for information on health care in Quebec I find that we don’t do very well compared to other provinces. Other provinces are allowing nurse practitioners to do what they should doing. All nurses

By Donna Byrne mtltimes.ca

for that matter can be providing front line access to care. The number of nurse practitioners in Quebec is shockingly lower than in Ontario. The creation of the CLSC’s was motivated by the desire to provide front line services outside of the hospitals in the 1970’s. To improve on shortcomings of the CLSC’s the government decided in the early 2000s to create Family

Medicine groups… Doctors in charge and working closely with Nurses. Despite the greater resources allocated to these changes for over 20 years we still struggle with difficulty in accessing front-line care. So many Quebecers do not have a family doctor. The proportion of the population without a regular family doctor (2015, Stats Canada) was 24.6% in Quebec, 8.3% in Ontario and 15% in Canada. We are the worst performers in all provinces. It is no wonder that our emergency rooms are full and wait times are so horrible. What a waste! This lack of access to

front line services has direct and indirect consequences on the health of our population in Quebec. Thousands of hospitalizations could have been avoided in Quebec with better access to care. (21,000 annually based on stats from 2013) The numbers are only increasing. Where are those Nurse clinics? There are none on the West Island and only a few private care Nurse Clinics in the East End of Montreal. The presence of nurse practitioners has the potential to greatly improve access to front line care.The existence of Nurse Practitioners began in 2007 in

Quebec following an agreement with the Order of Nurses of Quebec and the College of Doctors of Quebec. The agreement allowed Nurses to prescribe under collective orders for common health problems and minor emergencies. Why are we not using this to alleviate the bogged down system? The Ontario Government encourages the opening of nurse clinics. They announced the establishment of 25 of them in 2007 with the capacity to serve 40,000 patients. Nurse practitioners direct the activities of different health professionals without a doctor on site. A doctor working in collaboration with the clinics is available for more complicated cases. Quebec insists on maintaining the Family Medicine Model at much greater cost and worse outcomes. A nurse practitioner costs the health care system 1/3 of what a general practitioner costs. While a GP can count on an income of $264,000.00 and the most experienced Nurse practitioner gets $93,700.00. Studies show that anywhere from 25%70% of the work of nonspecialist doctors provid-

ing front line care could be carried out by nurses, with referrals to doctors when necessary. Clinics led by nurse’s report that in less than 5% of the cases they need doctor supervision and consultation. Because our Government does not support and encourage the development of these Nurse Clinics, private clinics are opening. They are more flexible and make greater use of all of the capabilities delegated to nurses. Resistance to change also deserves to be mentioned. According to Dr. Louis Godin, President of the Fédération des médecins omnipraticiens

11 Critical home inspection traps to be aware of weeks before listing your home for sale

MONTREAL - According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That's why it's critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn • July 14, 2018

Making Montreal drivers slow down

T

here are drivers who respect the speed limits in Montreal, but there are far too many who blatantly do not, especially on residential streets. In fact, we have a reputation of being the worst drivers in Canada. To some the repute has become somewhat amusing, but it is not. People are being seriously injured or killed pedestrians, cyclists and drivers included. Stop signs appear to have no effect, except for having drivers slow down, blink left and right - and never come to a full stop. Speed bumps are largely ineffective in this case, unless they are in line with the stop sign.Yellow traffic lights, indicating an imminent red light to drivers approaching an intersection, should inspire caution and the judgment to slow down and stop - if one is not already about to cross. Instead it inspires many to hit the gas pedal and fly through the intersection so they could beat the light, which they don't. It creates the scenario for a horrific accident, with very deadly consequences. And it has happened too frequently. Pedestrian crosswalks, meant to slow drivers down and actually come to a full stop when someone is crossing, are often ignored. Albeit, the majority of our crosswalks are simply painted lines that are often faded, with a couple of little signs indicating priority is to be given to pedestrians. They are poor examples in comparison to what many other cities have. Perhaps it's the stress of modern daily life, the frustration of city traffic congestion or just ignorance - but they are all sadly, poor excuses. Just recently, the denizens that be at Montreal City Hall announced measures aimed at slowing down the lead-footed Montreal driver. It is a

long overdue initiative but unfortunately, one that could prove to be basically ineffective. It's all about the follow through. At the July 4th press conference at City Hall, Mayor Denis Coderre unveiled his plans to reduce speed limits on most of the city’s streets, with the goal of having the new limits in effect by late 2018 or early 2019. But if the speed limits are not properly enforced, as they are not now - what difference will it make except costing taxpayers $2 million to change all the signs? Here is what is proposed: - 30 km/h on residential streets, in school zones, near playgrounds and one-way commercial streets. - 30 km/h in Old Montreal (*Some roads will be decreased to 20 km/h).

By Bonnie Wurst mtltimes.ca

- 40 km/h in industrial areas and on the main arteries of the city, like Sherbrooke and RenéLévesque. (*Notre Dame street will be set at 60 km/h). - 40 km/h on the main arteries on the outskirts of the city. (*Some will be set at 50 km/h). The announcement brought applause and accolades from many people and groups - but it also brought forth a lot of skepticism. The initiative is part of the 'Vision Zero' road-accident policy, an international movement started in Sweden in 1997 meant

'to reduce the number of fatal or serious accidents on a specific territory to zero'. It is based on the fact humans make mistakes, so 'road systems should be engineered as carefully as possible to ward off accidents, the public should be educated, and rules should be enforced'. When Coderre first announced his 'new' Vision Zero road accident policy in September of 2016, then opposition leader of Projet Montreal, Luc Ferrandez said in a Montreal Gazette article 'there was nothing new in the city’s action plan other than its name. Everything Mr. Coderre announced today, absolutely everything, was written in the 2008 transport plan of the city… some of these measures were announced by him several times. Nothing has been done.' However, there were many who welcomed the July 4th announcement, although with caution. "Lower speed limits will help make Montreal a safer place for cycling enthusiasts. It's music to our ears," Velo Quebec spokesperson Jean-Francois Pronovost said to the media. "We asked for this for years. For us, the comfort and safety of cyclists is of course infrastructure, but also a question of speed." Véronique Fournier, spokesperson for Piétons Québec also said, 'It’s a step in the right direction. But more needs be done to ensure pedestrian safety, such as creating roads allowing greater space for pedestrians and cyclists… for now it’s encouraging to see Coderre taking pedestrian safety seriously.' Yet Mayor Coderre's initiative is not new. In fact, it comes on the heels of projects where lower speed limits are already in place, like the RosemontLa-Petite-Patrie, Out-

remont, Sud-Ouest and Plateau-Mont-Royal boroughs - all who took their own initiatives. Even Hampstead already implemented lower speed limits. Coderre had criticized the boroughs for their plans. He expressed deep concern over how it would 'hinder businesses and in turn effect the city's economy'. And now he has become a champion of the very same thing. It is an election year after all - and many more appeasing announcements are to be expected. On Social Media the consensus seems to be divided, although the vast majority of people do welcome the idea of slow-

ing down drivers. Who wouldn't? The main concern is the enforcement of speed limits. The limits now in place are rarely enforced. How many times have you seen drivers speeding down a residential street, not stopping at a stop sign or going through a red light with nary a police officer in sight? We can expect a few speed-trap blitzes when the new limits are in place, which will fill the coffers at city hall and inflate the statistics - but the question many people are asking is, what will happen after that? Putting up signs but not having a plan in place to really enforce it will leave the

streets in the same place - dangerous. Let's hope the initiative is followed through properly, either by the present administration or by the opposition party - who have already been fighting for safer, better streets and seriously positioning themselves to bring about a 'changing of the guard' at city hall this November. What do you think? Will lowering the speed limits make our streets safer? Or is this just an election 'carrot-on-a stick' and/or a cash grab? We welcome you to share your thoughts with us and our readers.

For another summer, the teen patrollers joined the Sun Youth Bike Patrol and will also act as the eyes and ears of the Montreal Police Department. On July 10th, 2018, Mr. Vincent Richer, SPVM Chef Inspector and Liaison Officer for Sun Youth proceeded to the swearing in of 6 new teen patrollers, a division regrouping young committed people aged between 14 and 17 years old. As in previous years, Sun Youth offers teens the opportunity to work with

the bike patrol so they will gain insight into working within the Montreal community, acquire knowledge of police work and become ambassadors for their generation. They receive the same training as the regular patrollers (first aid, bicycle technical training, etc.).Throughout the summer, the teenagers will work in tandem with an experienced adult patroller at

festivals, community events and fundraisers for local organizations. In this way, they will be able to maximize their apprenticeship with the goals of enriching their knowledge about community-oriented career paths and providing insight into some of the possibilities available to them in the future. Sun Youth wishes them a happy summer!

Just For Laughs: A talk with Brad Williams C omedian Brad Williams, who was born with achondroplasia, a condition that is a type of dwarfism, uses his condition in his stand-up comedy as a means not only of introduction, but to break the ice with his audience.

By Stuart Nulman mtltimes.ca

“Sometimes there are people in the audience who get this weird feeling of uneasiness because I am a dwarf. That is why I start my routine with jokes about what it’s like to be a dwarf. That way, I can get it out of my way and go on to other sorts of topics,” he said. From there, Williams gives his audience a dose of high-octane comedy, in which he delivers nonstop rants on topics ranging from everyday life, to sex, to pop culture, to things that really get on his nerves. As a result, it prompted the late Robin

8

Williams, himself no stranger to a highly energetic brand of comedy, to deem Brad as “Prozac with a head”. And from July 18 to 28 at the MTelus on St. Catherine Street East, Brad will be part of Just For Laughs’ wildly popular Nasty Show line-up for the third time, in which he will join Nikki Glaser, Ms. Pat, Derek Seguin, Mike Britt and host Robert Kelly. “People like going to the Nasty Show because they see it as a safe place; a place where they can shout out at the top of their lungs George Carlin’s routine of the seven dirty words you can’t say on TV without being afraid,” said Williams during a recent phone interview as he was making his way to the airport to fly to an upcoming gig.“What makes this show so great is that everyone can get offended here, where everyone can be singled out and get hated equally. I get people who come up to me after a show and ask me why I didn’t make fun of the Armenians. When it comes to being insulted, everyone wants to be included.” And it was one comedian’s jokes about dwarves that gave Williams the right spark to pursue a career in stand-up comedy. “It happened 15 years ago when

I was 19. I brought my dad to a stand-up show, in which the comedian in question was telling jokes about midgets. Everyone in the audience was laughing at his jokes, except the people sitting with me at my table. The comedian noticed that, and brought me up onstage and started asking me questions, and my answers were getting laughs. And at that time, I was working at Disneyland, which prompted me to respond that ‘I am not one of the seven’,” he said. “I thought getting those laughs from the audience at that show was the greatest feeling and I was hooked on being a stand-up comic ever since.” From that rather accidental onstage Q&A evolved into a career in which Williams built himself a solid reputation as one of the funniest, in-demand comics around today, with appearances on such TV shows as The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Mind of Mencia, as well as his own solo comedy specials Brad Williams: Fun Size and Brad Williams: Daddy Issues. As well,Williams realizes that his comedy material, especially when it deals with his being a dwarf, has a way of reaching out to fans who are dwarves in particular, or who are disabled in general. “A lot of

Brad Williams

those fans in particular think that ‘Hey, you’re our guy’ and that in a way, I am a voice for the disabled,” he said. “I believe that is because I don’t do my comedy on that topic in a exploitive way, but ends up being more empowering. You’re not just laughing at yourself; it’s like teaching and explaining to audiences what it’s like to be disabled.” While trying to avoid politics for his material (although with the latest adventures of President Donald Trump, it’s hard to avoid), Williams’ recent target of his comedy jabs is the current trend of people trying to be victims in their own right. “These days, people like to complain about everything, so that they could find a way of being personally exploited and latch onto that so that it could give them a sense of legitimacy,” he said.“There was one time that I did an

appearance on a radio program, and the DJ showed me that he was missing half of one of his fingers. I thought to myself: ‘What does that have to do with being a dwarf … that you have trouble gripping the steering wheel of your car?’ It’s like those soccer players during this year’s World Cup who are ‘floppers’ and act like they just got shot in the butt. They are striving to be victims and get attention.” Besides his gig at the Nasty Show, Williams will also do three solo shows on July 23, 24 and 25 at Café Cleopatra as part of the OFF-JFL series, and do a live taping of his podcast “About Last Night” with his co-host Adam Ray on July 26 at 12 noon at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. “If you played with GI Joes and ate Fruit By the Foot during the 80s and 90s, then ‘About Last Night’ is the show for you,” he said. “It’s Adam and me just sitting down, hanging out and having a good time with comics and actors whom we find interesting, in which we will also do comedy sketches and sing-alongs with the audience. This is the first time we will be doing the podcast this early in the day; we maybe drunk during that time or maybe not. We don’t know.” *** In other Just For Laughs

news, the festival announced this past week its recipients of the 2018 Just For Laughs Awards. This annual red carpet event, which is now in its 11th year, pays tribute to the biggest names in the comedy world past and present, and will take place on July 27 at the Grand Salon Opera of the Hyatt Regency Hotel starting at 3 p.m. Comedian and longtime festival favorite Alonzo Bodden will serve as the emcee for the awards show. This year, Just For Laughs will honour the following individuals for their respective achievements in comedy: gala host Tiffany Haddish (Comedy Person of the Year); Hannah Gadsby (Comedy Special of the Year for her highly-acclaimed solo show “Nanette”, which will have its farewell performance on July 26); Jo Koy (Stand-Up Comedian of the Year); Lil Rel Howery (Breakout Comedy Star of the Year); and Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch (Comedy Writers of the Year, for their work on the hit Netflix series “GLOW”). *** For more information – or to purchase tickets – to the Nasty Show or any other Just For Laughs show, go to: www.hahaha.com

itness Boxing is a fantastic way to get in shape and adds a element of sports style and fun to your regular workout routine. When it comes to Fitness Boxing, participants can draw on their inner “Rockey” and make each workout somewhat of a personal challenge. Like all fitness activities, Fitness Boxing participants should first learn how to safely and effectively train, so they make fitness progress not get an injury that will result in them having to “throw in the towel” and quit. There are some fundamental things that should be included in almost all workouts. A thorough warm-up, cardio training, some strength training, core work, flexibility and and skill development. Skills should be focused on early in a workoutwhen the nervous system is fresh and the ability to acquire new physical patterns of movement is best. Once the skill is learned the timing is of lesser importance. In 1986 Stephanie Lamotta (Heavyweight Champ Jake Lamotta’s daughter) developed a Boxercise program in Los Angeles, CA. In 1987 Professional

Boxer Ian Clyde (who was also nine time Canadian Nation Champion and an Olympian), teamed up with me at the PointeClaire fitness center Club South West One, and created the H.I.T. (High Intensity Training) Fitness Boxing Program. The very popular program was offered at South West One for about ten years as a Circuit Training program. Now Ian is bring it back and offering his unparalleled experience at the West Island Studio Conditionnement Trans4m Fitness. Instruction can be either one on One or as part of a Circuit class and there’s even a program for kids (KidzBo) and for Teens. Learning the skills of Boxing movement, including striking, foot work, and defensive positioning is a very empowering feeling and it really is fun! Boxing for fitness is different than stepping into the ring, because the bag doesn’t punch back! Men and women, boys and girls can all realize true fitness benefits of Fitness Boxing, because it really is for everyone. Please see ad below.

New transit projects under study

T

A tramway like this one in Riga, for Montreal?

he Quebec Transport Minister announced last week that his department will spend 14.75 million to study public transit projects for the Montreal region. Although some people wondered why such studies would cost that much, on the other hand, it is the only way for proposals that have been around for some time, to get closer to materialization. The studies should be ready within 12 to 18 months, and Minister André Fortin promised that his department would work in close cooperation and consultation with all municipalities in the region. Factors to be considered for the final approval of each project will be their potential ridership, impact on the environment and on the population, and how they would be integrated into the regional transit systems. Some of the projects have long been on the table, for instance, extending the western section of the Orange metro line into the northern part of Ville Saint-Laurent and eventually crossing into Laval. Since the previous extension into that neighbouring city has been a remarkable success in terms of ridership, people in Laval expect that the expansion into the west-

The South Shore could also benefit from another long-standing notion: a rapid transit link running along the Taschereau Boulevard. And then on the island of Montreal,

metro line since the Blue Line. Named as the Pink Line, it would follow a diagonal design connecting Montreal North with downtown, with a possible extension to connect with the Peel Basin REM station and even up west to LaSalle and Lachine. Another new project would be rapid transit (i.e. a tramway) running through Notre Dame Boulevard which would connect the eastern part of the island to downtown. Also included in this new category the Transport Department will be the conversion of the suburban train to Mascouche, inaugurated just 3 years and a half ago, into a fully electric line compatible with the new REM system. An essential role in this process will be played by By Sergio Martinez the new agency created mtltimes.ca by the province 13 months ago, the Autorité there is the projected ex- régionale de transport press-bus lane on Pie-IX métropolitain (ARTM) Avenue, which could be which should be supervisextended to connect with ing all public transit planNotre Dame Boulevard, ning and developing in the right at the main entrance Montreal area.

Celebrating 10 years of pop culture, etc. at Montreal Comiccon

F

or three days last weekend, Montrealers of all ages lost themselves in another world that was filled with comic book super heroes, TV, movie and animation characters, video games, comic books, collectibles, animation, fantasy, sci-fi, celebrities and a whole lot of cool merchandise. That was the world of Montreal Comiccon, which held its 10th anniversary edition from July 6 to 8 at the Palais de Congres. Whether you have attended Montreal Comiccon for the first or tenth time, you can’t help but be overwhelmed at the grand scale of how this comic book/pop culture event has grown over the past decade. And for me, there are three main reasons why I return year after year. First of all, there’s the merchandise and collectibles.This basically was the roots of the comic book conventions that took place in hotel ballrooms during the 70s and 80s that evolved into Comiccon. You went there to the many kiosks

of comic book dealers from your hometown, or nearby cities and towns, to purchase a single copy or two of your favorite classic comic book, or complete certain sets of your comic book collection. These days, Comiccon’s kiosks offer so much more than just comic books.You can purchase tshirts of your favorite hero or character (my perennial favorite is MTC Comics, an Ontario-based company that probably has one of the best and largest selection of pop culture-related t-shirts and apparel; I always buy at least one t-shirt from them every year. This time, I bought one with the cover of the first issue of Action Comics – which marked the debut of Superman – on the front); costumes and accessories (even medieval swords); prints; edibles; posters; and even surprise boxes, which for a certain price, you can a whole whack of mystery merchandise and collectibles. Those surprise boxes are the top sellers at Comiccon. And there are even thematic surprise boxes, ranging from Star Wars, to Doc-

had the chance to attend four of them, and two really stood out for me. First there was veteran British actor Julian Glover, who is best known for his roles in Game of Thrones, The Empire Strikes Back and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. But being a James Bond fan, I best remember him for his role as the despicable villain Ari Kristatos in the 1981 Bond thriller For Your Eyes Only. However, at his Q&A session, Glover was anything but despicable; in fact, he was quite charming and engaging with the audience, as he told several behind-the-scenes stories about working on the above-mentioned productions. One of them dealt with how secretive the people at Game of Thrones are, especially with its story lines, and whether certain characters would survive into the next season. Glover was convinced to stay for season six when he was delivered the script pages of his death scene to his home by courier … only after he had to open two different boxes with two different keys. “When you really don’t

want something is when you’ll probably get it,” was Glover’s glib response from that incident. Chuck Norris, who is best known for his martial arts-based action movies like Missing in Action, Code of Silence and Lone Wolf McQuade, and his hit TV series Walker,Texas Ranger, entertained the full house at his Q&A session with a myriad of stories he happily related to them about his long career as a martial arts champion and as an action movie star, working alongside the likes of Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Lee.As well, he told how the series of memes filled with all those Chuck Norris “facts” brought about a new generation of fans and resulted in a goodwill tour that he took part in 2006, in which he visited 17 U.S. military camps and bases throughout Iraq, and took pictures with every soldier that he visited there (which totalled over 24,000 soldiers). Let the pop culture celebrating continue as Montreal Comiccon enters its second decade.

Did you ever wonder why you burst into song while in the shower?

C

By Heidi Shannon mtltimes.ca

ould be a shower, or a waterfall. Similar concept. Here’s why we sing. It is comforting to step into a relatively secure, comfy space and be able to shut out the world. Naked and safely enclosed in the bathroom, alone, unencumbered. The perfect setting to burst into song. The warm shower water has a rhythm of its own. It feels wonderfully relaxing as it cleanses the stresses away. It makes you feel good and singing makes you feel even better. No one is there to judge your voice, criticize your song choice or make you feel self- conscious. It is a comfort zone unlike no other. When you relax your brain releases dopamine. This released chemical in turn triggers the creative juices, so belting out a song gives instant pleasure. Problems and

stresses flee the body. Surrounded by bathroom tiles which do not absorb the sounds, your voice can bounce back and forth before fading away, creating the perfect sound system. The small space gives the voice a boost, adding the bass and power.Your imagination soars: You may be lead singer in a rock band, or driving a convertible on a winding ocean highway, or perhaps you are Julie Andrews dancing on mountaintop singing The Hills are Alive in the Sound of Music. Whatever your fantasy, it can become reality in the shower. Singing while charcoal soaping is a given. Follow up with the apple cider vinegar rinse and you have a perfect Supremes trio. The Charcoal Clay Soap has the power of a worry stone, absorbing tensions and cleansing at the same time. Black, smooth, tactile, sensual. Head to toe. The hair is left silky, shiny, healthy. The scalp and skin are detoxi-

fied and nourished. No chemicals. Our soap: charcoal, clay, and tulsi (Holy basil) accompanied by castor oil and organic coconut. Harmony. The Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse is the finale. Nourishing on the skin, designed for the hair and scalp, it restores the PH, disinfects and keeps the hair and skin in pristine condition. Containing parsley, rosemary and sage: Simon and Garfunkel would be proud of your choice. No wonder you sing. We stand behind our products. We give great customer service.

Sorry to bother you Movie review

W

By Sergio Martinez mtltimes.ca

hen Cassius G r e e n (LaKeith Stanfield) a young black man was being interviewed for a job at a telemarketing company, he had no much to show in his support. However, his somewhat unorthodox display of credentials was enough to get hired. The job of selling something on the phone, however, was not easy. At first, each time he called he got the usual response: the other party would hang up on him before giving any time to explain the reason of the calling, he usually wouldn't get beyond the perfunctory "sorry to bother you". However, Cassius's fortune would change when Langston (Danny Glover) a colleague and a fellow black, advised him to use a "white voice." Knowing how to be persuasive, combined with the use of a white voice, soon make Cassius a major telemarketing star. A success he would share with his girlfriend Detroit (Tessa Thompson), his long-time

Cassius Green (LaKeith Stanfield) and the big boss Steve Lift (Armie Hammer)

friend Salvador (Jermaine Fowler), and telemarketing colleague and new friend Squeeze (Steven Yeun). Things would get complicated for Cassius when at the same time as he is promoted and starts to enjoy a new status in the firm, Squeeze and his other friends and colleagues, tired of the abuses at the hands of the company, organize a union and even go on strike. Detroit also joins in the movement, deepening the ambivalent situation in which Cassius finds himself, caught between his promising career in a company that –he shockingly discovers– is involved in extremely unethical practices, and his friends and girlfriend openly critical of the controversial company. The decisive moment would come after Cassius is invited to a party at the big boss's place, where he is presented with an even more lucrative post in the corporation but at a very

high personal cost. Steve Lift (Armie Hammer), the big boss, is selling slave work, and not only that, scientists working for him have designed a formula to genetically change humans to make them work harder by increasing his physical power. "Sorry to Bother You" is directed by Boots Riley, and although it is basically a comedy, it also presents a sort of dramatic fable of today's corporate world and the extents to which big companies and unscrupulous bosses are ready to go in order to optimize their profits. It ironically portrays what blacks have to do sometimes to have some success, i.e. "white voices" as a form of status.This is a film that will provide entertainment and at the same time may make people think about the practices of some big corporations, even if for that the director would resort to an incursion into the fantastic.
