Hijab issue

Hussein Haballah, editor of Sada almashrek, a local Arabic publication, pointed out that in seeming contradiction to a clause in Montreal’s Declaration for Cultural Diversity and Inclusion, observant Islamic women who wear the head-covering hijab have a harder time finding work in Montreal than in a city like Toronto, even though they have good professional qualifications. He wanted to know what Montreal could do to promote more tolerance for this religious tradition.

Deros said that a growing number of health institutions in Montreal are hiring women who wear the hijab. “Within the city, I don’t know if we have any,” she said. “But we are giving as much information as we can to be open to employing women and men of different origins.” But, she reminded Haballah, “French is the language of the workplace.” He responded, “They speak French, from Maroc, from Indonesia, from Algeria. So language is not the barrier, I believe.”

The new border security agreement to be announced on Wednesday by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and U.S. President Barack Obama is badly needed and should bring some relief to Canadian traders, travelers, and tax payers. Harper has managed to convince his American counterpart that the past 10 years of increased border security and corresponding delays and bureaucracy - border thickening - has to stop and be reversed. Both governments are proposing to do this by streamlining how we process the coming and going of people and by streamlining unnecessary commercial regulations on the products we make together.

Overcoming “fortress America”

Convincing the Americans to make the border more streamlined is by no means a small feat. The Department of Homeland Security and many members of Congress would like to build more fences and walls and make the border even more difficult and expensive to transit. So Harper has wisely engaged the White House to put some counter pressure to this ‘fortress America’ momentum. Although explicit details of the agreement are not yet available, government sources indicate it contains provisions calling for coordination of the entrance and exit of all people as well as additional security features to enhance trade whereby trucks or cargo can be secured at the factory and processed more quickly at the border. The two governments have also begun a bilateral process of identifying regulations that can be harmonized to reduce customs and other paperwork. The fact of the matter is that this latest agreement builds on earlier accords and is not the invention of the current government. It is an improvement on the Smart Border Accord of 2001 negotiated by Jean Chretien as well as the Security and Prosperity Partnership with Mexico and the United States that Paul Martin joined in 2005. The new deal adds a coordinated entrance and exit system on the land border. Given that Canada and the United States share a 6,500 km border (not including Alaska)

which we do not want to turn into a military zone, it is only reasonable to share data on people coming and going. The Americans want to make sure that no terrorists slip into their country and there is little point in Canadian critics calling this concern paranoid. After all, national security is no longer just about airplanes or missiles. One terrorist with a backpack or car full of deadly material can cause a catastrophe. Canadians on the other hand want more efficient trade access to the U.S. market. Given those two interests, the deal seems to offer both sides progress. Rather than crying over lost privacy, Canadians and Americans need to keep their governments’ feet to the fire. The plan promises a thinner border and less regulatory delays. The Canadian side apparently will need to make a significant investment to set this up. Fine, but our government must provide both itemized budget amounts and benchmarks to allow Canadians to see whether we are, in fact, making progress on the border and whether we are spending money wisely.

Border a costly bottleneck

The Canada-U.S. border is quite a costly bottleneck. Losses in travel and tourism, commerce and trade, as well as taxpayers’ money to finance government expenditures in administering border procedures and various security programs amount to tens of billions of dollars per year. There is no consistent data available to the public to track year-by-year costs of border programs. Researchers can only find snap shots of individual programs or pieces of overall program spending. Keep in mind that, after 10 years of various border initiatives, actual costs have gone up while we are not sure if any security gains have been made. Unless we can measure and evaluate them, border programs will expand by their own bureaucratic momentum. Canadians are well-served by this new shared border vision but we need to demand that its objectives and expenditures be held to account. Alexander Moens

While the elected officials at the Dec. 6 borough council meeting were preoccupied almost entirely with questions from outside Park Extension (including the increasingly controversial issue of locating a large composting facility in the old St. Michel quarry), there were some items on the agenda of local interest. The area of the district east of the AMT rail line that stretches several blocks to St. Laurent Blvd. is becoming increasingly popular with property developers. They appear to have discovered that

the buildings of former or almost inactive small manufacturers on Marconi, Alexandra, Waverly, St-Urbain and Clark streets have an antique cachet that is now very much sought after by home buyers. One of the latest addresses, a former industrial building at 7272 Clark at the corner of de Castelneau, is being re-zoned by the borough for the creation of 19 housing units. The project will also include a rooftop terrace, according to Deros.

Undergoing transformation

whole area is being transformed,” she said. “A lot of the buildings there have been neglected and vacant for a very long time and there’s more interest now to densify and to build housing.” While zoning for the area in question is currently a mix of business and commercial, the borough is taking a piecemeal approach to determine how much can be re-zoned residential. “It’s a good area for housing to be created,” she said, noting the close proximity of the de Castelnau Metro station and Jarry Park.

English-speaking immigrants face job challenge, says CEDEC report This much joblessness ‘a major problem,’ says PEYO’s Calce M a r t i n C. B a r r y Mature English-speaking workers in the Montreal region who are recent immigrants face numerous challenges, including the fact that some lack adequate French language skills, according to a new survey released by a Quebecbased English linguistic minority group.

Discrimination seen

The report, written by the federally-funded Community Economic Development and Employability Corp. (CEDEC), suggests that these kinds of workers are more likely to experience racial or religious discrimination, and are less likely to know about available resources for finding employment. Older mature workers likewise seem to have less French language skills, are more likely to consider their level of computer skills as an obstacle, and are more likely to experience prejudice related to their age. Perry Calce, vice-president of the Park Extension Youth Organization (PEYO), who also sits on the board of the Montreal region CEDEC, said the

results are an accurate reflection of a situation he sees in the community. “For a great deal of our residents this much unemployment amongst the older workers is really a major problem,” he said in an interview following the release of the results last week in Côte des Neiges.

“Until there is a concerted initiative by all levels of government to try to solve this problem then there will be a lost generation – especially for new Canadians who have been here for a period of 10 years or less,” Calce added.

begins to be felt most acutely after the age of 50 years, and is particularly pronounced after 55 years. “This prejudice exists despite the fact that a very small percentage of Englishspeaking mature workers have physical or health limitations that impact on their ability to find employment.” However, there is a more insidious side to this problem, it continues.

Not Francophone

“Some of the respondents mentioned the fact that even though they were perfectly bilingual, they felt job discrimination targeted them simply because they are not Francophone.” Many of the mature workers participating in the study felt frustration because they faced challenges which they had no control over, whether it might be related to the fact that they belonged to a linguistic minority, were recent immigrants whose schooling was not recognized, or simply that they were were considered “too old.”


VSP adopts new sustainable development plan Based on centre city model, it covers the next three years M a r t i n C. B a r r y The Borough of Villeray/St-Michel/ Park Extension has adopted a sustainable development plan, consisting of 55 recommended actions to be carried out between now and 2015.

Some of the goals that will hopefully be met include reducing dependence on fuel oil for heating at municipal buildings; adopting a new bylaw that would make it mandatory for building owners to use heat-reflecting materials on roofs; banning the use of non-returnable plastic water bottles in municipal buildings; eliminating one of the most widely used plastics, No. 6 (polystyrene), from fast food outlets; and planting 400 trees per year on public land throughout the borough. One of the key measures in both sustainable development plans is that they require the active cooperation of residents in order to fully succeed. City councillor Mary Deros, who assisted councillors Elsie Lefebvre and Frank Venneri in developing the borough’s plan, emphasized the importance of this aspect. She maintains that a “green lane” project which was launched in Park Extension three years ago eventually fell apart because of a lack of support by residents who were supposed to play their part by doing the maintenance.

“This locally-based plan attests to our willingness to pursue a diversified strategy for the environment while taking concrete measures in order to leave future generations a living environment that is green and healthy,” Borough Mayor Anie Samson said during a Dec. 6 press conference to announce the plan. In order to reach the goals set out in the plan, a number of changes are being made to existing borough regulations. A follow-up committee is being set up, with a mandate to do a once-yearly assessment of whether the goals of the sustainable development plan are being met. The borough’s plan is based on a sustainable development plan first Green Lane project developed by the centre city. “This past summer it wasn’t main-

tained, hardly anybody used it, and some of the citizens who did want it were using their front lawns instead of using the back lane,” she said. “We’re saying that we do support green lanes. However, citizens have to be responsible to keep them clean and to maintain them.” The borough’s sustainable develop-

ment plan is supported by a number of local community groups, including the Park Extension Youth Organization (PEYO) and VRAC Environnement – Éco-quartier de Parc-Extension. “This was done by consensus with everyone in agreement on how the borough should go in the future, because we do care about our environment,” said Deros.

side h O RO s C O P e

Aries March 21-April 19__________________

Relationships fill Sunday/Monday. So do contracts and negotiations, opposition and serious attraction. Life’s circumstances tumble across us and form our path. Sometimes another tumbles down the same channel. The beneficial relationships appear after noon Sunday, not before. Be careful with money and investments Tuesday/Wednesday. Thursday/Friday’s international, legal, cultural or intellectual interests form an entry to ambition. A month of ambitions starts Wednesday—it would be a good time to start projects, but a partner/client (a “permitter”) must be freely onside. Go slow.

Taurus April 20-May 20___________________

Deal with chores, employment matters, health and nutrition Sunday/ Monday. You can beneficially invest in your job Sunday afternoon, Monday. Relationships become front and center Tuesday/Wednesday, just as a month of love, understanding and wisdom start. The weeks ahead hold success in higher education, legal matters, far travel, culture, intellectual endeavours, publishing, religion, and love. This week, your personal efforts succeed, especially midweek. But retiring or dealing with the government, holds problems. Thursday/Friday’s mysteries contain an echo of earlier December.

Gemini May 21-June 20___________________

You could fall in love Sunday/Monday, but if you do, make sure it’s after Sunday noon (PST). Tackle chores and health concerns Tuesday/ Wednesday – avoid background activities, collusion or unethical temptation. (Even innocent government-related actions could incur the criticism of “legal hawks.”) Relationships bless you Thursday/Friday (and can solve any problems that arose Tuesday). But a surprise awaits, too, one that could spur you to alter your social plans/outlook. Midweek begins a lucky month of financial action, accurate hunches, sexual urges, research, secrets and mysteries.

Cancer June 21-July 22___________________

Get everything done on the home front Sunday/Monday, because midweek begins a month of opportunities, excitement and fresh horizons – you’re going to want the freedom to act on new openings, especially in romantic and social zones. Tuesday/Wednesday spark romantic urges, creative talents, pleasure and speculative success. The month ahead does feature opportunities, but opposition and challenge also – be flexible, diplomatic. If single, you could meet true love in a work-related group (Saturday?) but he/she will be deeply stubborn inside, so make sure you want “the whole package.”

Leo July 23-Aug. 22______________________

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22_____________________

Your energy, charisma, effectiveness and timing are tops Sunday/ Monday. Sunday morning might present a problem, or an insight into a soon-to-occur action. (This action/event could be purchase of a residence, a home move, children’s programs, or a gardening or soul project.) Chase money Tuesday/Wednesday (but be careful with purchases). Wednesday begins a month of rest and family, domestic, security, property, retirement concerns. A major venture (investment, home purchase, surgery, lifestyle change, intimate affair) has stalled since August: soon it will move forward, swiftly.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21___________________

Lie low, rest, contemplate and plan Sunday/Monday. Your energy returns Tuesday/Wednesday – others notice you, try to please you. Chase money Thursday/Friday, buy/sell – but don’t buy machinery, computers, electronics, etc., until Friday afternoon/eve. Friends, news or a short trip give you good ideas Saturday. Midweek begins a month of reports, paperwork, communications and travel. One friendship might ebb for awhile, but your home and family will more than fill the gap, as they show affection now into mid-January. Soon, an anticipated opportunity or relationship will “start.”

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21________________

Your energy and charisma stay high, Sage, but midweek (to late January) shifts your focus to earnings, purchases, possessions, and sensual urges. Optimism and popularity fill Sunday/Monday – a wee wish will come true. Retreat to catch a second wind Tuesday/Wednesday. Contemplate two things: the few weeks ahead, and a project or idea that arose in the late spring or summer, then stalled. This project will likely speed forward over the next six months – plan how to re-launch it. It involves work, machinery, health or money. Shift to a lower gear in pleasure, love, for awhile.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19_________________

Be restful Sunday to Friday – you’re about to emerge (Wednesday, though you won’t really feel it until Saturday) into a 30-day phase of heightened energy, alertness, effectiveness and charisma. Sunday/Monday nudge you to ambition – all’s smooth, you communicate well. Your hopes and general joy rise Tuesday/Wednesday. A flirtation, even a developed love, is fruitful/lucky, almost in a hidden way. Rest deeply Thursday/Friday. You might need to split with a family member, which can close a source of money. (Just as well.) A stalled romantic or creative venture will revive soon.

Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18__________________

This is a fine, happy week, although romance, adventure and pleasure are winding down. (Still, you’ll give and receive love messages for weeks to come – perhaps from your kids.) If you’ve started a love relationship since November 25, look at it carefully Sunday: is it worth continuing? Is there a major potential flaw which you might be ignoring (e.g., she likes society and you live in a backwoods cabin)? Love relationships in 2011 tend to mingle with ambition, which can leave love in second place. Midweek’s restful. The month ahead brings work. Love, not temper, Friday a.m.!

Don’t shop before noon Sunday. This day and Monday bring a sweet, mellow mood and a broader understanding – of life, society, religion’s role, etc. Be ambitious Tuesday/Wednesday – all’s smooth. You might stumble upon a lucky break in home, property, retirement, security or similar zones. (This week is a good time to quit a job, if you’ve been planning to do so.) A month of rest, retreat, of spiritual quietude, charity and perhaps government-related chores, begins Wednesday – but it doesn’t affect you until Saturday. Thursday/Friday brings hope and an uncomfortable friend.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22____________________

Pisces Feb. 19-March 20__________________

You’ve had a nice long rest, Virgo, a “down home” time. That ends midweek, when a month of romance, creativity, adventure, pleasure and speculation begins – you’ll ride a winning streak, one that could bring a potential life mating. (To some; most Virgos will meet their big love 2012 to 2025.) A lucky mid-2011 to mid-2012 trend nudges you to settle in a foreign country, or to combine idealistic love with a nesting instinct. Either of these could bring major action soon (Wednesday/Thursday bring clues.) Chase money Sunday/Monday. Midweek’s restless – follow your curiosity.

You might have figure out a mystery (of finances/investment, or of love, of emotions, of commitment and consequence) Sunday/Monday. Realize investments made now will be merely okay (unexciting returns). Midweek brings profound thoughts, gentleness and love. A money relationship might hit an unexpected barrier; a rather new personal link grows, a friendship begins to form. Be ambitious all week, especially Thursday/Friday. Show higher-ups what you can do. Be eager, social, a team player. An exciting month of social delights, optimism, popularity and flirtation starts this week!

La Ville de Montréal présente son Plan stratégique de déneigement pour affronter l’hiver 2011-2012 À l’approche de l’hiver, le vice-président du comité exécutif de la Ville de Montréal et responsable des services aux citoyens, du matériel roulant et des ateliers, M. Richard Deschamps, présente le Plan stratégique de déneigement 2011-2012. « Cet hiver, notre Administration consacrera un budget de 150 M$ aux opérations de déneigement pour assurer la sécurité des déplacements sur quelque 10 500 km de trottoirs et de chaussées. Nuits et jours, nos équipes veilleront à donner le meilleur service possible à la population. Au plus fort des opérations, les Montréalais pourront compter sur 3 000 travailleurs et 2 200 appareils pour venir à bout des tempêtes hivernales », d’affirmer M. Deschamps.

Zoom sur les opérations de déneigement

Le Plan stratégique montréalais assure la mise en œuvre des opérations de déneigement regroupées en quatre étapes, soit : l’épandage de fondants et abrasif, le déblaiement, le chargement et l’élimination de la neige sur l’ensemble du territoire de la métropole. « Notre Plan met l’accent sur la coor-

Concrètement, deux voies réservées ont été ajoutées à nos priorités cette année : Notre-Dame et SaintPatrick. De plus, la brigade hivernale et les stationnements de nuit gratuits sont au nombre des mesures renouvelées cette année pour améliorer de façon constante nos opérations », de préciser M. Deschamps.

Justin Trudeau Papineau

Parmi les principales mesures du Plan, mentionnons :

• Le déblaiement prioritaire de 13 voies réservées ; • Le déblaiement prioritaire de 22 zones stratégiques ; • Le chargement de la neige coordonné sur 15 axes prioritaires ; • Plus de 5 700 stationnements gratuits de nuit en période de chargement ; • Lors d’une tempête de 30 cm et plus : interdiction de stationnement sur six routes de neige et ce, jusqu’à la fin du chargement ; • Le plan particulier d’intervention pour les tempêtes extrêmes de 60 cm et plus.
