three strains of the flu virus: two type A strains and one type B. This seasonal-flu includes the influenza A(H1N1) strain, responsible for the pandemic occurend in 2009. The vaccine is safe and does not contain any live virus. As a result, it cannot transmit the disease. Vaccination cannot protect you, however, against more mundane infections such as colds, which are often mistaken for the flu. See differences between Flu and Cold.

People targeted by the free program

Vaccination is free for people at higher risk of developing complications either due to their age or health: Children age 6 to 23 months People with certain chronic diseases, such as heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes, major obesity, cancer, asthma or a weakened immune system (also applies to pregnant women, regardless of the stage of pregnancy); Pregnant women in good health who are in their 2nd or 3rd trimester; People age 60 or older;

Teach children the right way to wash their hands. Wash your hands with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use alcohol wipes or antiseptic gels, foams, or liquids that contain 60% to 70% alcohol. Caution: Antiseptic products must be kept out of the reach of young children. Children should use them only occasionally and should be supervised while using them. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, since they are gateways for infection. Get into the habit of regularly cleaning your surroundings: countertops, sinks, and other surfaces that are frequently touched. This can be very effective in destroying viruses, which can survive for up to two days on hard surfaces. Use water with soap or domestic detergents. A disinfectant made from bleach (1 part bleach and 50 parts water) is very effective for cleaning toilets and sinks. Avoid contact with people who are sick or who might be contagious by keeping your distance and by not touching personal objects and utensils used by them (dishes and the like). The same goes for everyone else in the household, since a person can be contagious even without having any symptoms. Get vaccinated when vaccines are available. If you are at risk of complications, ask a health-care professional if you should also receive the pneumococcal vaccine.

Close contacts of groups of people at risk or of children under six months old, health-care workers, and pregnant women in their 2nd or 3rd trimester can also receive the vaccine at no charge. This year again, it is also free for people who live in remote or isolated areas.

OPINION & EDITORIAL

Canada needs to act against “sex tourists” E

very UN member, except the United States and Somalia, has ratified the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child. Yet horrible abuse of children continues; for example, prostitution and the trafficking of children for sex. South America is notorious for this, the demand fueled by “sex tourists” - wealthier males usually from North America and Europe. Iguazu Falls is one of the most renowned natural tourism sites in South America, attracting hundreds of thousands every year. However because of lax policing, the area is also a smuggler’s dream. Among the trade in cheap consumer goods is an illicit trade in drugs, stolen vehicles, weapons and people. According to INTERPOL and the FBI, Paraguay, for example, owes a large part of its economy to illicit trade, some estimates placing the underground economy as worth up to five times its annual GDP.

obliged to move to cities in the region to look for work. The incidence of sexual exploitation is staggeringly high. According to Sentinela, a Brazilian children’s advocacy group, of the 489 children they rescued from 2002 to 2007, 410 of them were victims of sexual exploitation. Furthermore, according to Argentinean immigration officers, out of the dozens of girls and young women rescued from 2004 to 2007, almost all of them were Paraguayan girls destined for the sex trade in Argentinean cities situated further south. Argentina, as party to international covenants protecting children, is obligated to inhibit the trafficking of children and minors. However, Argentina continues to be the source of a lot of such traffic, largely because it lacks resources to address the problem and because many law enforcement and border control officials are reportedly complicit in the trade. Reports from the media, UN agencies and nonHuman trafficking in women and children According to the UN’s International Organization governmental organizations suggest that the probfor Migration (IOM), human trafficking in the lem is not lack of awareness. Rather, it is the lack Iguazu Falls region chiefly involves women, teens of investigatory and prosecutorial resources and and children. IOM studies have estimated that initiatives devoted to rescuing children and minors roughly 6,000 unaccompanied children and teens caught up in this horrendous trade. However, the lack of resources is not just an cross over between Brazil and Paraguay each year. These young people are at risk of being kidnapped issue for emerging regional economic powers like and forced into, or otherwise falling into, the sex Argentina and Brazil, both of which still struggle trade; many of them are illiterate and come from with widespread poverty. There is also the failure by extremely poor families in rural areas. Many of wealthy countries, like Canada, to allocate adequate these children and minors have had to flee abuse resources to investigate “sex tourists” and bring and violence within their very homes and have been them to justice in their home countries.

Children continue to live unsafe lives

More than 20 years have passed since the international community brought its focus to the universal rights of children when the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child came into force, yet many of the world’s children continue to live lives that are anything but safe and in accordance with the values and requirements set out in that Convention. A Canadian sociologist named Richard Poulin, who has studied the international sex trade, says that the trade has grown larger and more complex over the last two decades. According to Poulin, human traffickers, all of whom are connected to networks of organized criminal gangs in some way, are responsible for transporting anywhere from one to four million women and children every year, the majority of them destined for the sex trade. Outside a minority of countries with transparent and credible legal systems, our world is a Hobbesian place where the “paper protection” for children through international covenants and treaties is far from reality. Another ugly reality is that abusers of the most vulnerable among us come from wealthy countries like Canada with rule of law. Trafficking children for sexual purposes reveals an international economic system of supply and demand at its cruelest and most amoral: those with a need that would land them jail and social shunning at home fly to places where children are sold by their own families into a shadowy world that everyone knows exists yet continues in spite of international conventions and treaties.

While there is not enough evidence to conclude that this is the reason for the short supply of drugs currently afflicting Canadian hospitals and pharmacies, it is not unreasonable to suggest that provincial drug reforms have had an impact on drug production. Companies can’t work at a loss and neither can their employees who would be laid off as a result. It’s simple: prices must provide a competitive economic return to drug producers, relative to alternative uses of invested capital. Alternatively, if prices are artificially high, then taxpayers end up paying more than they would under competitive market conditions. On that point, a recent study from the University of British Columbia suggests that B.C. could have saved $157 million in 2010 if the province had capped generic drug prices as low as Ontario and Quebec. If that argument is followed, why not cap drug prices at even lowers levels, say, pennies apiece. Imagine how much provincial governments could save. But the problem is that no regulator can really know what the best prices are. Changes introduced to provincial drug plans fail to address the underlying problem - the total absence of competition among retailers and incentives for customers to comparison shop. Canadians would be much better

off if governments just repealed public policies that distort the market for prescription drugs, and instead allowed competition to determine the prices of generic drugs that are paid for by public drug plans. That would lead to lower prices and greater voluntary use of generics. This is currently what takes place in the United States. In 2006, Wal-Mart introduced an innovative prescription drug retail program in the U.S. that allows customers to purchase a 30-day supply of prescriptions drugs for only $4, or a 90-day supply for $10. The program includes more than 300 generic products. According to Wal-Mart, this has saved consumers more than $3.5 billion since 2006. In response to Wal-Mart’s in-store drug plan, the majority of other U.S. pharmacy chains now offer similar drug programs. This intense competition has encouraged Americans to take advantage of low cost generic drugs which, unlike in Canada, are a fraction of their brand-name equivalent. Our recent cross-border comparison found that of the top 100 most commonly prescribed generic drugs in Canada, average retail prices were 73 per cent of the price of their brandname equivalent. That compares to generics that cost just 17 per cent of the price of their brand-name originals in the United States.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

How much can the taxpayers endure? In the leaflet ‘’Live from DeuxMontagnes’’ of October 2009, mayor Marc Lauzon declared that he was going to use the leeway the City had given itself in the two previous years to commit to not raising the fiscal burden of the taxpayers in 2010. The mayor also promised that for the three following years the tax increase would never be superior than the consumer price index. But in 2011 the average tax increase was 13.6%.

The council is now working on the next year’s budget. It would be unreasonable if mayor Lauzon, again, increases the municipal taxes. And if he does, it would be unacceptable that the raise be superior than the consumer price index. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Open up competition Not surprisingly, in 2010, generic drugs accounted for 78 per cent of total dispensed prescriptions in the United States compared to 57 per cent in Canada. Notably, Canadians use less generic drugs than Americans even though most provinces have a forced generic substitution policy where pharmacies are required to dispense a generic version of a drug when filling a prescription. Instead of trying to save public funds by capping generic drugs as a percentage of their brand-name equivalent,

governments should allow generic drug prices to be determined by competitive market forces. Requiring drug manufacturers and pharmacies to compete for customers is the best way to put downward pressure on the price of prescription drugs.

the animal is embarrassed to be in a costume and may want to take it out on a human. 20. When the kids go to the door, stay close by and watch carefully. 21. Set a strict curfew for older kids that go out on their own. 22. Kids are NEVER to go into the house unless you know them. 23. If you have to drive, slow down more than usual. 24. Give the kids a snack before they go out. They won’t complain about being hungry and want to eat the candy. 25. Take half the candy and place it in the freezer for use in the summer. Halloween is a great time for kids and you can keep it that way by following a few of our tips when they come to your door October 31st. 1. Keep the path to your door clear of all obstacles and well lit. 2. Don’t terrorize the kids. It’s all about fun and not making them wet their pants. 3. Be extremely careful with the candle in your pumpkin so that nothing bursts into flames, including a kid’s costume. Consider using a battery powered light or glow sticks. 4. Use flashlights, glow sticks or electric lights with the power cord safe and secured. 5. If you have a dog, keep it in another room and away from the door. 6. If you’re going to give candy, give only store bought wrapped items such as chocolate bars, chips, etc. Loose candy will be thrown out by the parents. 7. Alternative giving can include pencils, erasers or stickers with a Halloween theme. 8. If you’ve spent a lot of time on your Halloween display, you may want to consider putting some sort of SAFE fencing around it so that everyone can enjoy it without it being trampled. 9. Halloween candy is magically calorie and fat free on October 31st so feel free to use the “one for you, one for me” rule. 10. Check out our Haunted House page for tips and special effects.

Gaining party members in Quebec his biggest task ‘Let’s have enough faith in ourselves to grow where we’ve never been before’ M A R T I N C. B A R R Y In the race for the NDP leadership which has seen the odds until now stacked heavily in favour of Brian Topp, Thomas Mulcair, who in a display of sheer luck or political acumen led the party from a single seat in Quebec to a record 59, is positioned to become the longshot that betters and bookies alike dream about.

Backed by 33 MPs

During a campaign launch held on Oct. 13 in Mulcair’s riding of Outremont, his team trotted out 32 NDP MPs – mostly from Quebec with four from Ontario – who are throwing in their support. Topp has the backing of many NDP MPs from Quebec and the rest of Canada, as well as that of big guns like former party leader Ed Broadbent and ex-Saskatchewan premier Roy Romanow. Mulcair, on the other hand, has been touted by several media as the “underdog” and “anti-establishment” candidate, partly because his two leading backers – former NDP veteran MP from Saskatchewan Lorne Nystrom and New Brunswick NDP leader Dominic Cardy – aren’t shining stars. “Tom has proven time and again that he can win,” said Cardy, who became the New Brunswick NDP’s leader last March after the only other candidate for the position was disqualified.

N.B. leader’s support

Although Mulcair is being cast as the would-be leader best equipped to broaden the NDP’s appeal to Canadians, and to reverse the NDP’s image as a party dominated by longtime insiders, it’s worth noting that Cardy is the co-founder of a moderate faction in the New Brunswick NDP, which advocates that party’s modernization, while also being identified with ‘Third Way’ liberal ideology. While there is no pressing shortage of NDP MPs in Quebec, Mulcair already finds himself handicapped by the fact a large percentage of the Quebec NDP caucus is not supporting his candidacy, although they had initially been expected to. In the Laval and North Shore regions, Mulcair, who was the Liberal MNA for Chomedey until four years ago, has commitments from Laval-les-Îles NDP MP François Pilon and Laval NDP MP José Nunez-Melo. However, Marc-Aurèle-Fortin NDP MP Alain Giguère has thrown his support behind Mulcair’s main rival, Brian Topp. Laurin Liu, the NDP MP for Rivièredes-Mille-Îles, had not declared her allegiance by the North Shore News deadline. Although Terrebonne-Blainville NDP MP Charmaine Borg also has yet to make a commitment, Mulcair has the support of Manon Perreault, the NDP MP for Montcalm in the Lanaudière region.

News, Pilon, who along with NunezMelo attended the Mulcair campaign kickoff, explained why he chose Mulcair. “I looked at the list of potential candidates,” he said. “The two most likely were Brian and Tom. Brian has a lot of experience in the NDP, but no experience in Parliament. I decided that the one who is most apt to bring us into power is Tom. He’s the one with the most experience.” Pilon didn’t disagree that Mulcair’s reputation as the “grizzly” – a nickname the bearded Mulcair was given during his years in opposition in Quebec City, when he would “maul” members of the PQ government – could turn into an asset for the NDP going up against the ruling Conservatives. “There’s no doubt he’s perceived as meaner than Jack Layton,” Pilon said, while adding that a leader who’s more provocative than Layton was could “This leadership race is about taking the person who is best placed to beat Stephen change the “dynamic” in the House of Harper in the next election,” said NDP leadership contender Thomas Mulcair.

Deux-Montagnes council marks city’s 90th birthday Homage paid to builders of the city during meeting M A R T I N C. B A R R Y During the City of Deux-Montagnes’s monthly public council meeting on Oct. 13, Mayor Marc Lauzon and Councillor Tom Whitton read a statement marking the 90th anniversary of Deux-Montagnes’ founding. Initially known as Saint-Eustache-sur-le-Lac, the city was renamed Cité des DeuxMontagnes in 1963.

A mountain city According to some background information provided by Whitton, who read the statement in English while the mayor recited it in French, DeuxMontagnes is said to have gotten its name from the two mountains that local First Nations peoples, as well as coureurs de bois and travelers, would see on Lake of Two Mountains’ northwest shore past the Saint-Anne-deBellevue portage. One of the peaks is Calvaire mountain, while the other, its twin, is SaintJoseph-du-Lac hill. As Whitton noted, a lot has changed in the 90 years since Deux-Montagnes’ beginnings. When St-Eustache-du-Lac was founded in the 1920s, its population was about 300. Now the City of Deux-Montagnes population stands at more than 17,000.

Things have changed But not only has the population increased, so have costs. In those early days, when the building of a bridge from the St-Eustache area to what was

then known as Île Jésus was being considered, the cost of a steel span was estimated at around $60,000. “At that price, we should have built a dozen bridges between Montreal and the suburbs,” Whitton commented. It’s been 80 years since DeuxMontagnes elected officials held their first city council meeting at city hall on Oka Rd. on June 6, 1931. Although construction of the stately stone building is said to have caused quite a stir among local political observers, Whitton said that most residents today are pleased that meetings, debates and celebra-

tions can still be held there. “In many ways, it’s the heart of our city, the place where important decisions are made,” he said.

Deux-Montagne’s builders Whitton noted that although many of Deux-Montagnes’ buildings from yesteryear have disappeared, some are still standing tall, including the city hall, the Petite École Jaune, the Maison Dumoulin, the Maison Berthelet and the Maison Baudoin. “Let’s hope they’ll be part of our cityscape for many years to come,” he said. Whitton said that to

make the occasion of Deux-Montagnes’ 90th birthday, he wanted to pay tribute to the builders and founders of this beautiful city. “These French and English-speaking men and women of a bygone era cleared forests, raised crops, built mills, bridges, churches, schools, streets and shops, all while feeding and schooling their many children. They’ve left us a rich and enviable heritage and have instilled in us strong values, such as mutual aid and perseverance. On behalf of my fellow councillors, I wish all DeuxMontagnes citizens a very happy 90th birthday. Let’s be grateful for what our ancestors have given us and rise to the challenges that lie ahead.”

Council issues In council business, the councillors voted to approve a three-year agreement between Deux-Montagnes and the Canadian Red Cross Society, which would provide humanitarian assistance to residents if there were to ever be an emergency requiring major help. Council has also agreed to allow the Association du diabète LavalLaurentides to illuminate the front of city hall and the water fountain in blue on Nov. 14 and 15 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. for World Diabetes Day. The city will be holding a public information meeting at 7 p.m. on Oct. 27 to explain a change of zoning from residential to institutional for the lot located on Oka Rd. between 26th and 28th avenues. A council document states that the meeting is being held in view of council’s acceptance in principle of a settlement offer made by Gestion Benoît Dumoulin following a lawsuit which that company was going to file against the city.

Third Annual Color Clash

n September 15th, 2011, Lake of Two Mountains High School held its third annual Color Clash activity day. On this special day, students and staff members alike were divided into 8 different coloured teams, and all of them Team Red contemplates victory came to school dressed in their team color. Throughout the day, teams competed against each other in a series of games and competitions. Events like tug-of-war tested our strength, while the hugging contest brought out our camaraderie. Yet, all of us had our eyes on the prize- a pizza party for the entire team! Our school is very lucky to have a day like this. It gives us a chance to meet new people and make new friends. Even though we are not necessarily put on a team with our friends, that doesn’t mean that we don’t get to see them! We can still hang out with them during the day, there is just some friendly competition taking place! This activity gives students the opportunity to take a break from studies and to have a little fun. Color Clash is one of many examples that show us how activities and extracurricular activities can really raise the spirit in a school. They can also make our high school life a little more fun. A day like this gives us lots of special memories that will stay with us forever, long after we graduate from high school. The Orange pumpkins are smash-proof

side h O RO s C O P e

Aries March 21-April 19__________________

A month of mysteries, depths, secrets and hidden forces begins Sunday. Your subconscious will burst to the surface, to heighten both your intuition and your intimate desires. If you’re undisciplined, you could enter an extramarital affair. Don’t confuse love and lust. This month ahead holds a major change and/or opportunity for you, in lifestyle and finances. These will demand commitment; without it, success will dissolve. Tackle chores early Sunday. Crucial relationships fill the work week: be nimble, co-operative. Big success possible Friday. Love, law, learning Saturday.

Taurus April 20-May 20___________________

A month of work and drudgery ends; a month of fresh horizons, opportunities, new sights and exciting relationships begins. You might relocate; if so, go big and far – and not before November 10. Sunday’s romantic, creative. Okay, I lied: some work and drudgery remains, Monday/Tuesday. Tackle it Tuesday for best results. Crucial relationships spark Wednesday/ Thursday – all’s good, but temper or domestic tension could interfere Thursday eve to Friday dawn. After this, Friday is packed with success potentials in intimacy, investments, finances, health – Saturday, too, but milder.

Gemini May 21-June 20___________________

A month of work, drudgery, some boredom, and caring for dependents starts now (Sunday). Until November 10, these duties can interfere with your wanderlust, or with your need to read, learn and talk. (The wanderlust, et al, is likely to win.) Be home, rest Sunday. Romance lures Monday/Tuesday, but even Don Juan would have difficulty with this one: go slow. That work begins in earnest Wednesday/Thursday – but successfully, other than a problem driving or communicating (especially late Thursday). New people, new horizons and opportunities excite you Friday/Saturday – chase them!

Cancer June 21-July 22___________________

Sunday starts a month of pleasure, beauty, creativity, romance, selfexpression and love for children. You’ll ride a winning streak – a bigger one than usual, as social delights, popularity and wish fulfillment are added to the brew. Major stuff could happen! A co-worker romance is highlighted. Sunday’s for communications, travel and casual acquaintances. Rest Monday/ Tuesday, make sure your home/business are secure/grounded, and get your beauty sleep. Wednesday/Thursday spark that romance, pleasure, creativity, et al. Tackle chores – and social/romantic joys – Friday onward.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22______________________

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22_____________________

The weeks ahead raise the money stakes. As is usual for late October and November, you’re favoured to chase money, seek a pay raise, enhance your earnings, buy and sell items, and deal with possessions. But this year an added, deeper – and very lucky – level enters, so that possessions become investments, the search for added income could lead to a lucrative business, the attempt gain new clients could produce a partnership, etc. One flaw: until November 10, a partner or someone you really like socially could interfere with, even fight this, causing you to make a hard choice. Tuesday to Saturday highlights all this.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21___________________

Your hopes, sociability and popularity rise Sunday – the very day that kicks off a month of increased energy, charisma, clout and effectiveness. Use this month to the fullest, start important projects, seek favours – seize the day. A slowdown will begin November 23, so don’t waste these intervening weeks. Use Monday/Tuesday to rest, plan, to finish up chores so they don’t interfere with the future. Then charge forth Wednesday to Saturday. Some days bosses will be critical; other days (Saturday) co-operative. Sense their mood, then act accordingly. Big opportunities await!

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21________________

Slow down, Sage. Sunday starts a month of quietude, rest, sweet solitude and contemplation. Use these weeks to plan your future, to handle overdue tasks, to fulfill outstanding obligations, to interact with government and solve tax issues, to deal with charities, to be spiritual and reconnect with the living center of this world. If you do some of these things, you’ll emerge refreshed and rejuvenated by late November. This influence begins in earnest Wednesday/Thursday. A wish is denied Monday, but might come true, quietly, Tuesday. Your energy, luck rise Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19_________________

Sunday begins a month of happiness. popularity, social delights, flirtations, entertainment and wish fulfillment. You are undergoing the deepest change of your life, from 2008 to 2023. The month ahead brings you many clues about this change, its purpose and intended result. Biggest clue: the change will bring about a revolution and grand renewal in everything listed in the first sentence. These clues will be “lit up” by events, joy Wednesday/ Thursday; by “quiet knowing” Friday/Saturday. Until November 10, avoid working secretly toward your goals: it undercuts this fine process.

Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18__________________

The weeks ahead feature domestic concerns, real estate, security, business territory, and the foundations or “what you stand on” in any area. (E.g., your education is – usually – the foundation of your career.) You might decide to abandon stale, useless projects or relationships, and to “found” new ones. (This will lead to success, especially in ambitious areas.) Chase money Sunday. News, details, errands, travel and casual friends fill Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings those domestic, foundational concerns. Don’t be overbearing (applies to mid-November). Romance winks Friday/Saturday!

Sunday brings a month of career and status ambitions, prestige relations, dealings with bosses, parents and authorities. You’ll be under pressure, but you’ll also have excellent opportunities to impress higher-ups, especially this Wednesday to Friday. You might be pulled between two extremes: ambition and security, even between ambition and the desire to quit. Truth is, the desire to quit is luckier than ambition this year (to June 2012). Trying to reconcile these opposites can make you quick-tempered until November 10. Step softly – luck is high. Joy, hope, Friday/Saturday.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22____________________

Pisces Feb. 19-March 20__________________

Sunday kicks off a month of communications, details, paperwork, travel and errands, news, casual acquaintances and siblings. This year these things (emails, calls, trips, news, etc.) can trigger, or entwine with, some major projects in the same zones, but on a “larger stage.” E.g., communication becomes publishing, details become profound ideas or higher learning, trips expand into international travel, casual friendship grows to love, etc. Wednesday to Friday brings clues – and opportunities. You might give up one life philosophy, and embrace another, this week to next June.

The weeks ahead bring relief in the form of gentle understanding, a mellow mood, wisdom and a gentle, compassionate love. You might travel afar, deal with foreign-born people, attend college, publish, meet a “teacher,” or otherwise expand your views. Cultural rituals arise – e.g., weddings, bat mitzvahs. Some of you will decide to wed. These themes are highlighted Wednesday/Thursday, and an event connected to them can come Friday – with an exhilarating “uplift!” (Be ambitious Friday/Saturday; this will cause the best to happen.) Earlier, embrace a challenging person Sunday.

Male & female flies

I walked into the kitchen one day not too long ago to find my wife stalking around with a fly swatter. “What are you doing?” I asked. “Hunting Flies” she replied. “Oh... Killing any?” I asked, after pausing to watch her make several rounds around the kitchen table. “Yep, 3 males and 2 females”, she replied. “How can you tell?” I asked, quite intrigued. “3 were on the refrigerator and 2 were on the phone.”

Lawyers

Did you hear the story about the two lawyers that were conducting business in a bank when an armed robbery began? One of the robbers rushed to the teller windows, while another one guarded the doorway. The third robber stood in the middle of the bank, and proceeded to give out directions to the bank’s customers. “Everyone up against the wall... Okay, now empty your pockets. We want watches, wallets, and anything of value.” One of the lawyers jammed something into his partner’s hand. “What’s this?” his partner whispers. The other partner replies, “It’s that $100 I owe you.”
