‘We were almost hit’ Janaya Fuller-Evans

staff reporter

Andrea Mears is afraid someone could be injured or killed at the border of Burnaby and New Westminster. But Mears isn’t afraid of a city border dispute – it’s the traffic driving around the area of Cariboo Park at the intersection of Cariboo Road and 10th Avenue that worries her. “Two days ago, we were almost hit,” Mears said in an interview Monday. “I’m crossing the street, I’ve got the stroller, I’ve got the kids, somebody looks down the hill – they’re stopped, and I’m right beside them – and they start turning. I’m yelling at them, pulling my kids back.” The intersection is problematic for a lot of reasons, she said, but most of all, for pedestrians. Mears’ four-year-old attends Pied Piper Preschool in Burnaby, and the family walks there and to Cariboo Park, as well. “Coming around that corner, it’s very treacherous because people look for cars but they never look for pedestrians,” Mears said. “People just drive like lunatics, and they don’t look when they’re turning corners.” People often drive on the sidewalk when Intersection Page 8

Concerned: Andrea Mears crosses at the intersection of Cariboo Road and 10th Avenue with her children Ainsley, 4, and Lachlan, 14 months, and her dog, Ginger. She says drivers speed through the area and come around the corner without looking for pedestrians.

City residents want port out of pipeline sessions Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Burnaby residents opposed to Kinder Morgan’s pipeline expansion plan are upset that Port Metro Vancouver was participating in the company’s public information session at Stoney Creek Community School recently. “The Port of Vancouver’s participation in Kinder Morgan’s public relations work to sell their plan to build a new, bigger pipeline to ship diluted bitumen gives the

appearance of a serious conflict of interest,” said local resident Elsie Dean, a founding member of BROKE – Burnaby Residents Opposing Kinder Morgan’s Expansion. The citizens’ group, which includes people whose homes were sprayed with crude in the 2007 pipeline rupture, is against Kinder Morgan’s proposed expansion to nearly triple oil shipping capacity by twinning the Trans Mountain pipeline. The line runs through Burnaby and has been in place since the 1950s. The expansion will greatly increase tanker traffic in the Burrard Inlet,

and it’s Port Metro Vancouver’s responsibility to ensure the tankers are safely escorted in local waters. Burnaby-Douglas MP Kennedy Stewart also got involved and penned a letter to Port Metro Vancouver, respectfully requesting the port “immediately cease its promotion of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain expansion.” “Although personnel from the Port Metro Vancouver purport to be at the meeting to provide information to local residents on the issue of the proposed

Crunch is on for Christmas Bureau Christina Myers staff reporter

Canada’s most recent census data showed a spike in the number of children born in the mid- to late 2000s, a phenomenon dubbed a “baby boomlet” at the time. The reality of what that means for social service agencies who support families has become evident for at least one city group this season. The Burnaby Christmas Bureau’s executive director Stephen D’Souza says they’re seeing a “bubble” of kids who have been moving through the program since about 2008. “This year we have a lot of five- to seven-year-olds and we struggle to keep the popular items on the shelves,” he said. The bureau provides toys for low-income families at Christmas, operating this year out of a temporary toy room location at Brentwood Town Centre. Toys donated at locations around the city, or purchased with financial donations, are stocked on the shelves of the toy room and parents who are pre-registered with the program are able to access gifts for their children before Christmas. But it’s not just the “boomlet” that is challenging for the bureau – D’Souza says they always have a hard time stocking gifts for teens, as many people automatically think of toys for young children when making a donation. “We still need teen items, both boys and girls,” he told the NOW. “Also, we are really low in books.” They’re also starting to feel the time-crunch, as Christmas looms and the financial fundraising has a long ways to go. In all, they need to raise $210,000; so far, they’re just shy of $130,000. After the global financial downturn in 2008, the bureau saw a spike in families needing help, but a decrease in donations, which led to the need to dip into reserves that had been built up slowly over the previous decade. Further dips into the reserve could impact the bureau’s ability to operate at full capacity.

Mayor says city needs housing help from feds Janaya Fuller-Evans

staff reporter

While other municipalities throughout Canada may be in dire need of new roads or sewage systems, Burnaby’s primary need is affordable housing, according to Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan. “The main problems that we suffer from are housing issues and the lack of investment in housing, and the fact that we’re not able to achieve a balance in housing alternatives within our city,” he said. “And that’s, I think, common to Vancouver and New Westminster, too, is that we’re struggling with the issue of affordability and we’re trying to find ways to deal with that.” Corrigan was discussing the Federation 6

Mayor: Infrastructure funding a priority for municipalities across Canada continued from page 3

“We’ve already paid for our sewage treatment plant at Annacis (Island). We have a little bit we’re going to have to pay for the sewage treatment at Iona (Island) but we’ve been pretty good at looking after those areas,” he said. Corrigan said he thinks the federal government needs to reprioritize its spending to maintain infrastructure throughout the country. “Rather than putting that $35 billion into fighter planes, wouldn’t you think it would be smart for you to take that money and put it into local communities?

That’s what we’re suggesting,” he said. The fact that municipalities are in agreement about the need for secure infrastructure funding shows what an important issue it is, Corrigan said. “It’s not often that you get politicians at municipal levels speaking with one voice across Canada,” he added. “We don’t expect that all of this can be accomplished tomorrow but we’ve got to set up a strategy to be able to deal with it or we’re just going to hand this over to the next generation without any way for them to be able to cope,” Corrigan said.

Roads,wastewater,water and storm water systems across the country need to be repaired, according to the federation’s president, Edmonton Coun. Karen Leibovici. The federation wrote an infrastructure report card a few months ago that found more than 50 per cent of municipal roads in Canada are in need of repair and about one-third of the water systems and wastewater systems need repairing, as well, she said. Municipalities need sustainable federal and provincial or territorial funding to maintain infrastructure, she added.

“We know that municipalities own about 60 per cent of infrastructure, of all the infrastructure in this country, and we receive only eight cents on the tax dollar,” Leibovici said. “We can’t do this alone – we have to have help from the federal government as well as the provincial/territorial governments, to bring our infrastructure up to a standard that is acceptable to be able to move goods and service across this country.” The federation is asking that the government move away from applicationbased funding and make funding more predictable across the country.

Municipalities also want the government to increase municipal infrastructure funding, bringing it up to $5.75 billion per year, according to a federation press release. Infrastructure Canada

conducted consultations with provinces, territories, the federation and other stakeholders over the summer as part of its work to develop a long-term infrastructure plan, according to its website.

of the public. We go to all the open houses, we provide information on the port’s operation, on the safety, and educate people,” he said, adding there are times when the port teams up with other organizations during public information events. When asked what the port’s position on the expansion was, Leclerc said they are waiting for a chance to review the Kinder Morgan’s application, which they will get a copy of once it passes through the National Energy Board process. Before Kinder Morgan can proceed with

twinning the pipeline, the company has to submit a project application to the National Energy Board for review and approval, which they are planning to do in late 2013. “There is a process that’s ongoing now with the National Energy Board, and we need to have their approval, and we’re going to have the project application, and we’re going to have to review the project,” Leclerc said. Port Metro Vancouver’s role is to oversee safety, security and environmental protection along 600 kilometeres of coastline, including the Burrard Inlet and the Fraser River.

Following the fracas, interim Liberal leader Bob Rae urged MPs to show a “willingness to engage in public discourse without insulting each other.” What a refreshing – and likely doomed – concept.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Raw food best option for pets Dear Editor:

The recent Burnaby NOW column on pet food stated that all the evidence about raw food is anecdotal. I see and hear from my customers on a daily basis about the changes they have seen in their own animals. After spending thousands of dollar at the veterinarian’s office, the problems went away within two weeks of being on raw food. Here’s some more fun facts you didn’t know about pet food! Veterinarians are given two weeks of nutritional instruction by a major pet food manufacturer’s sales representative. This same manufacturer uses starch as its primary ingredient in its hypo-allergenic food.

PRODUCTION MANAGER Doug McMaster PRODUCTION STAFF Ron Beamish,Kevin Behnsen, Lynne Boucher, Nola Bowling, Rona Eastman-Magee, Laura Powell, Tony Sherman GRAPHIC DESIGNERS Helen-Louise Kinton, Gary E. Slavin REGIONAL CLASSIFIED MANAGER Trixi Agrios CLASSIFIED SUPERVISOR Dawn James CLASSIFIED REPS Darla Burns, John Taylor, ACCOUNTING Judy Sharp SALES ADMINISTRATOR Janeen Williams

They call it prescription formula and charge a fortune for it. Starch, according to the U.S. nutritional database, has zero nutritional value. My customers tell me they’ve tried it and it doesn’t work! Kibble manufacturers label their products as natural. You can call anything natural, it is a marketing gimmick. It is common practice for kibble manufacturers to use meat that is 4D: dead, diseased, dying or disabled. Scrap meat, not fit for human consumption, that’s how the whole kibble industry started! The mystery meat is cooked at high temperature, mixed with wheat, corn and soy (the three biggest allergens for animals), processed beyond recognition then sprayed with fat for flavour and synthetic preservatives for shelf life.

NEW YEAR’S EVE DINNER

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Synthetic material in kibble continued from page 6

People quite often tell me that they feed “high quality kibble.” When I ask them how they know that, they point to the label and the price. I turn the bag over and point at the ingredient list. So many words I can’t pronounce. A bag full of synthetic ingredients. My favourite is synthetic taurine, we use real hearts from clean animals! How do you compare kibble to raw? You can’t. We use human-grade meats free of antibiotics, growth hormones and steroids. We add fresh vegetables, extra virgin olive oil and kelp. We preserve by dehydrating or freezing. You see it in our products and the results in the animals. Veterinarians are concerned about the business they lose. Ask any veterinarian or Canadian Veterinary Medical Association associate if they would feed “high-quality kibble” to their two-legged children. My guess is they’d rather eat my dog’s food. M. Barbara Fellnermayr, President, Amoré Pet Foods

Thank you from the Gogos Dear Editor:

This week, a member of Burnaby Gogos picked up three jars of pennies from a woman who called because she���d been saving them since noticing the Burnaby NOW article, “Grandmothers want change.” Since that article appeared, we’ve sent close to $2,000 worth of coins to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, Stephen Lewis Foundation, and our members have more in their homes, ready to roll. The response from individuals, business owners and staff and councillors from Burnaby city hall is inspiring. It’s heartwarming that the community trusts a Burnaby NOW article enough to invite strangers into their homes to pick up coins and to drop them off at our events, assuming we will keep our promise to send all funds to the Grandmothers Campaign. We do! The campaign, launched in 2006, works

Thankful for committee

Dear Editor:

Re: We absolutely need a new hospital, Burnaby NOW, Dec. 5. NDP MLA Kathy Corrigan and the NDP’s health critic, Mike Farnsworth, have been quick to dismiss the recently released report by the Burnaby Hospital community consultation committee. It is regrettable and more than a bit biased. Not only have Ms. Corrigan and Mr. Farnsworth claimed much of what is in the report has been known for years, Ms. Corrigan also states the hospital was in “dire shape” and “seismically fragile” 11 years ago. Well if that was the case, then 11 years ago would place this dire state of decay at the end of the NDP’s decade in power in the 1990s. As a citizen of Burnaby served by Burnaby Hospital, I would really like to know how this shameful inequity has been allowed to persist for so long? Why has Burnaby Hospital been treated like a poor cousin in Fraser Health’s budgeting? Hopefully something will now be done to fix this situation so that Burnaby Hospital will be treated fairly and placed on an equal footing resource-wise with other Fraser Health hospitals. Overall, the committee deserves thanks, not derision, for successfully raising the profile of issues at Burnaby Hospital. And all those who bravely spoke out about the situation at the hospital also deserve to be thanked.

Anger: Safety valves needed continued from page 6

system, it’s hard to take seriously. We have a system that looks like outright health communism compared to Obamacare, but it’s a settled issue, one that no political party dares touch. Yet few in the American fight are capable of stepping back and disengaging from the emotions it produces. It’s not people disagree-

ing that I don’t understand. It’s the degree of rage that scares me. I’ve seen it in myself. Although I’ve never tossed a brick in a riot or hit someone with a bat, I don’t think those actions are completely out of the realm of what I might do. I’m human. I’m susceptible to unthinking anger. That’s why I’d love to have that safety valve. It wouldn’t stop people get-

ting angry. It would work, instead, like the valve on an old steam engine. When the pressure gets too high, the valve hisses away, and some of the anger leaks out. No big explosion. If I had the foggiest idea how to create that safety valve, I’d start working on it today. Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance, sister paper to the Burnaby NOW.

Intersection: ‘It’s crazy out here’ continued from page 1

they’re turning left from Cariboo Road, heading towards North Road, she said. “It’s crazy out here,” Mears added. Traffic already cuts through the side streets in the area, but Mears said she is worried there will be even more of that happening as people use the Pattullo Bridge to avoid paying tolls on the new Port Mann Bridge. She sees drivers speeding along Kent Street, she said, even though there are schools and parks in the area. The 30 km/hr zone around Cariboo Park doesn’t deter speeders, she added. “People never do 30,” Mears said. There is a speed bump at the crest of the hill, but Mears would like to see one put in near the troublesome intersection, or perhaps a special turn lane, she said. She would also like to see the narrow sidewalks widened, she said, explaining that there isn’t a boulevard between traffic and the sidewalk. “I’ve got a new walker here – he doesn’t want to go in the stroller, he wants

and examine some of the issues there, he said. “We tend to do a few feasibility studies and then see what’s the most efficient use of our money, cost-effective-wise,” Behl said. “First we’ll look to see what the problems and what the solutions are.” Doug Louie, assistant director of engineering for the City of Burnaby, said in an email that he has been communicating with Behl about the issue. “When New West develops some preliminary recommendations that may involve Burnaby, I would expect a meeting with New West to discuss,” he wrote. “If we develop a consensus at the end of the day, we may share in the cost and/or enforcement effort based on jurisdictional boundaries, but also on available funding and priorities. “I would not expect any problems working with New West on a safety initiative that could benefit both municipalities,” he added. Burnaby had not received any complaints about that particular intersection as of Tuesday, according to Louie. www.twitter.com/ janayafe

to walk on the sidewalk – and the sidewalk’s pretty narrow,” she said. “I don’t want him to walk.” She has been in touch with the City of New Westminster since the summer, but the situation has not been resolved, she said. Jerry Behl, a transportation engineer with the city, said he has been looking into the issue. “What we’re planning to do is have a quick review of that location next year,” he said, adding he is also communicating with the City of Burnaby. Once the area is assessed, it will be prioritized depending on other sidewalk and safety needs in New Westminster, Behl said. “It’s a difficult choice to make sometimes,” he added. He also mentioned the narrowness of the sidewalk and said the city may consider what can be done about it. “There’s no boulevard to separate pedestrians and the traffic, so you’re pretty close to the traffic,” he said, adding, “we do have some land on that side.” The city will pull accident statistics for the area

Youth tradition returns

Teens in custody centre will mark holiday celebration Ashley Kim staff reporter

The annual Christmas in prison celebration at the Burnaby Youth Custody Services Centre will be held today, Dec. 14. The young inmates, aged 12 to 17, will be gathered at the gym to celebrate the holidays with dinner, music, games and gifts.

“They look forward to it every year. It’s been 29 years that I’ve been doing it,” says Evelyn Florendo, the volunteer organizer of the annual Christmas dinners. The youth will be served dinner by 20 volunteers from the community and attend lectures from special guests, including B.C. Lions football player Angus Reid, the archbishop of Vancouver, Bill Vander Zalm and his wife Lillian. “(The youth) have

New chair named Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The Burnaby school board has a new leader at the helm. Baljinder Narang was elected chair at the last board meeting on Dec. 11, replacing Larry Hayes, who served as chair for the last two years. “I would like to begin by thanking the board and my fellow trustees for their confidence in me to serve as chair for the year 2013,” Narang said in her inaugural address last Tuesday. “I feel very humbled and honoured at this privilege and commit myself to serv-

ing our school district to the best of my ability.” Narang was first elected as a school trustee in 2008 and re-elected in 2011. Longtime trustee Ron Burton, who has served 25 years, was elected vicechair. Burton is no stranger to leadership roles with the board, having served as both vice-chair and chair in the past. “I feel excited,” Burton told the NOW. “We have a new superintendent to work with and a new deputy superintendent. Both of them bring a lot of creativity to the district. It’s going to be an exciting year.”

Recall for city biz Marelle Reid

staff reporter

Burnaby company Golden Boy Foods Ltd. is voluntarily recalling its Golden Boy brand in-shell mixed nuts because they may be contaminated with salmonella. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency put out a warning this week to the public to avoid the product sold in 1.36 kg (3 lbs.) mesh bags with UPC code 0 64684 10948 0. The nuts are sold in B.C. at Extra Foods, No Frills, Real Canadian

Wholesale Club, Shop Easy/SuperValu, Superstore, Westfair and Your Independent Grocer. There have been no reported illnesses associated with this product, but the food agency warns of the potential for salmonellosis, a food-borne illness that can cause serious and sometimes deadly infections in young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. For more information about the recall, visit www.inspection. gc.ca, or call the CFIA at 1-800-442-2342.

committed some mischief without knowing the consequences. But we still love and care for them,” says Florendo, who is in charge of this special Christmas celebration. “These children are like my own. I love them all.” The food for the dinner is purchased by donations made throughout the community. The inmates also receive gifts of items including toiletries, magazines, and sweets. editorial@burnabynow.com

BOARD OF TRADE LAUNCHES ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVE FOR BURNABY BUSINESSES

City printer takes the green pledge H

emlock Printers has long been known for its environmental initiatives as a business in Burnaby. Recently, the company signed the Burnaby Board of Trade’s environmental pledge, to share its past efforts and make future commitments to sustainability. “I think it’s a great idea,” Richard Kouwenhoven, president and general manager of Hemlock Printers, said of the pledge. “It’s a simple ON MY BEAT approach to getting Janaya Fuller-Evans businesses involved in sustainability, and letting a business define where they can make the greatest improvements.” Through the pledge, businesses can describe past sustainability initiatives and share that information with other businesses, he pointed out. It’s good for companies to have a clear idea of the accomplishments they’ve made,” he said. Businesses can also commit to future actions in areas such as energy, water, waste, travel and purchasing. Making businesses sustainable is not a one-time act, Kouwenhoven pointed out. “Sustainability needs constant attention,” he said. His company works to make time for staff members to meet and discuss future initiatives, he said. “The biggest thing is, make the time to meet as a group,” he said. “We clear a lunch hour and talk about things we’ve done, and have an open platform for people to give their ideas on what we could do next.” Another Burnaby-based company, digital consulting agency Smartt, also recently signed the pledge. One of the company’s business sales executives is a member of the board and became involved with the initiative, said Smartt CEO, Saleh Tousi. Smartt – formerly SmarttNet, primarily an ISP provider – opened in 1995 and was recently rebranded to better showcase its digital consulting services. The agency is unique in the industry, in that it manages its own data centre – essentially a warehouse with servers and equipment, Tousi said, so managing energy usage is a big focus. “Of course, this uses a lot of power,” he said. “It’s one of our key initiatives, not just from a bottom line point of view, but from an impact on the environment,

Green scene: Hemlock Printers chair and CEO Dick Kouwenhoven, left, with his son, president Richard Kouwenhoven, make sustainability a priority for the company, most recently signing the Burnaby Board of Trade’s environmental pledge. of what we do to reduce that power consumption.” The company has worked with IBM to reduce power consumption by 61 per cent, according to a document Tousi forwarded to the NOW, and has reduced its hardware footprint by 83 per cent. The board of trade’s pledge is set up to help businesses inform others about their sustainability initiatives, according to Tessa Vanderkop, marketing manager for the board. The pledge was developed through the board’s environmental committee, and the concept was suggested a few years ago, she said. Vanderkop began working with the board in March 2011, and has been working on the pledge ever since, she said.

“We’ve been working on it actively since then, trying to pull it all together and turn it into a useful resource,” she said in an interview on Nov. 28. “The intention is that its an opportunity for businesses like Hemlock and Vancity – they actually just signed this morning – to take a pledge and really show people what they’re doing.” For businesses that are looking for a starting point for becoming more environmentally sustainable, the information provided through the board can help owners find easy ways to lower their companies’ footprints, she explained. Efforts such as turning off lights and powering down computers are a good start, she added. The board has been working with

Climate Smart Businesses Inc., a social enterprise that offers training and tools to measure carbon footprints and find ways to reduce them. Board members can contact Climate Smart to develop plans to reduce environmental impact, and they can also take steps on their own, Vanderkop said. As of Nov. 28, about 12 businesses had signed the pledge, she said. The board was planning a soft launch for the pledge at a Vancity event that evening, she added, with a possible event launch later on. “My hope is there is going to be a real tipping point,” Vanderkop said. “I think once the word gets out we’re going to get some real traction for the pledge.” jfuller-evans@burnabynow.com

Hydro employees get four per cent wage hike in new deal

The Burnaby-based Canadian OfficeandProfessionalEmployees Union, local 378, and B.C. Hydro reached a tentative agreement at the end of November. Bargaining began in April, according to a press release from the union, though there was a hiatus during the summer.

The agreement – which covers the period from last April to March 2014 – includes a four per cent wage increase overall, staggered over two years between April 1, 2012 and Oct. 1 2013, the release stated. The first increase is fully retroactive. “I’m pleased we were able to

keep the concessions the employer tabled during bargaining out of the collective agreement,” the union’s vice-president, Gwenne Farrell, said in the release. The agreement also included some benefit increases, such as expansion of immediate family in the language for bereavement cover-

age, the release stated. “While we didn’t make large gains with this agreement, we were able to safeguard what our members currently have and keep their wages close to inflation,” Farrell said. The union represents nearly 2,000 inside technical, profession-

al and administrative workers at B.C. Hydro. The union’s bargaining committee is recommending members ratify the agreement. The ratification vote will be held by mail-in ballot, with a voting deadline of Dec. 13, after NOW deadlines.

back after four. Chum and coho also look and behave differently. While chum have blotchy, red and green stripes down their sides, coho take on a darker colour with reddish flanks when they hit freshwater. Chum tend to be more visible and spawn in the lower reaches of Stoney Creek, while the coho hide under logs and plants and are harder to spot. So next time you are walking out in the woods close to a local creek, keep your eyes peeled for spawners.

Stoney Creek Environment Committee. According to Dyer, the last two years saw roughly 250 and 150 coho, but in previous years, those counts ranged from 25 to 60. “Usually the coho run is winding down at this point and we see very few fish by early December,” Dyer said. The two types of salmon have different lifecycles. Coho spend a year in freshwater before heading to the open ocean, while chum hatch in spring and move to saltier waters within a few months. Lower Fraser coho typically return after three years, while chum come

LastMinute GIFT

GUIDE Getting ahead on last minute holiday shopping ! f (NC)—With the countdown on to check off everyone on that holiday gift list, the swelling crowds in malls may make shopping less appealing.The upside? Easy ways exist to navigate the stress of last-minute shopping. “Canadians can satisfy all of their shopping needs with the click of a mouse when they visit airmilesshops. CHECK IT TWICE! ca, a unique Canadian online shopping portal,” says Andy Wright, president, AIR MILES Reward Program. “We’ve partnered with more than 100 of the top retailers in both Canada and the U.S. to offer one-stop-shopping, plus the opportunity to earn AIR MILES reward miles from the comfort of your own home.” As experts in online shopping, the team at airmilesshops.ca offers these essential holiday shopping tips: • Prepare a detailed list that includes everyone you need to shop for. If you have the time, create categories to make it simple to search for items all at once online. By signing into www. airmilesshops.ca, Collectors can shop and earn AIR MILES reward miles and find great deals on popular store websites, such as The Apple Store Canada, Sears, Indigo, The Shopping Channel, Macy’s and Amazon.ca, to name a few. • Stay tuned into social media to keep up with deals and coupons at favourite online shops and with your loyalty programs. For example,

‘like’ a loyalty program’s Facebook page to stay on top of current promotions, and check in occasionally to their website for bonus offers and more. • Set up newsletter alerts with favourite retailers and schedule a time during the week to review them for any hot deals on items from your list. • Have a budget in mind and find a system that works to track all purchases. Whether the information is stored electronically, or on a notepad, making a note of spending will help to cross-reference when the credit card bill comes in. • Schedule a time to shop – and stick to it. Like scheduling Saturday hockey practice or dance classes with the kids, it’s important to set aside a couple of hours or more each week to finalize purchases. Every organized step made toward efficient holiday shopping means more quality time spent with loved ones during this special time of year! f

Make a List

Keep it simple this holiday season

(NC)—Whether you like it or not, with the holidays fast approaching life is about to get a lot busier. Never ending social engagements, get-togethers, cooking, decorating, shopping - the list seems endless. By following these simple tips, you can stay organized and stress-free this holiday season. Make a list, and check it twice to ensure nothing gets overlooked. Along with your master list, create a budget of how much you want to spend and stick to it. When possible, plan ahead. According to a recent Duracell survey, over a quarter of parents have forgotten to buy necessary gift accessories, such as wrapping paper, tape, or batteries for gifts. By stocking up on items such as Duracell with DuraLock batteries you can avoid last minute trips continued next page

to the store, and also avoid disappointment when your kids open their battery powered toys. Another great time saver is to have a supply of host and hostess gifts on hand, like wine or chocolates, so you never have to worry about showing up to a party empty-handed. If you find crowded shopping malls overwhelming, try shopping online. It’s a great way to save time, to seek out the best deals and to avoid showing up at a store only to find out they no longer have what you need. With many sites offering free shipping, it can pay to shop online. Finally, one of the most stressful parts of the holiday season can be entertaining friends and family. Whether you’re in charge of dessert, or the entire meal, always plan out what you’re cooking and buy ingredients several days in advance, so you have everything on hand. Try preparing some dishes a day or two in advance to cut down on event day stress. And remember, it’s the season of giving, so if you’re running out of time just ask friends and family to give you a hand. Even though the holidays are often overwhelming, remember that the most important task on any to-do list is to relax and enjoy the warm company of family and friends! f

GUIDE

Holiday shopping for your parents (NC)—Holiday shopping for parents is difficult and can put a real damper on your holiday cheer. To help, the editors from RedFlagDeals.com, Canada’s largest bargain shopping website, suggest some innovative ideas for parent-appropriate gifts:

Small gift items CAN BRING BIG SMILES!

Good for Mom and Dad • A gift certificate to their favourite restaurant. • An iPad or tablet is great for people who casually surf, email, read, and voice/video chat online. • A GPS device. Go for a model that is simple and easy to operate.

How to avoid gift giving disasters

f

f

Good for Dad • A multi-tool. Dads like gadgets. Moms like gadgets that can fit into a drawer and don’t take up half the garage. Everyone wins. • Take him out to the ball game. Buy tickets to his sporting event of choice and score extra points by going with him. • TV shows on DVD/Blu-ray boxsets. Consider it a trade for the hours and hours of kids’ shows and cartoons back in the day. Good for Mom • Things she’d never buy herself like perfume, diamond earrings, even dance lessons, will make her feel special. • A gift certificate to a day spa. She’ll be pampered, and she’ll get away from having to hear about your dad’s new multitool. • A digital picture frame. Preload this with family photos. Be sure to include some embarrassing photos, mom will love those. f

(NC)—While we know that it’s better to give than receive, still it’s always nice when a gift exchange doesn’t result in awkward silence, tears, or a store return. To avoid gift giving disasters this year, check out these easy tips from shopping experts at the bargain hunting website, RedFlagDeals.com: Use your ears - Listen up when someone is talking about their hobby so you can avoid buying something they already have or something they won’t be able to use. Striking up a conversation with them is a great way to narrow things down. Crowd Source - If you’re not sure about your gift, it never hurts to consult other people.Your best bet is people close to the recipient. You can also consult the community at RedFlagDeals.com, which has many savvy shoppers among its 500,000 members. Do some research - There’s nothing worse than a great gift that just misses the mark, like a beautiful sweater in the wrong size. If you’re buying a video game, make sure you’re buying it for the right system. It’s a gift, not a lecture. Even if you mean well, giving gifts like a self-help book or dieting book may offend people. Instead, you could play it safe and give a gift card to a sporting goods store. You never want your gift to make someone feel bad. f

Dreaming with Infiniti David Chao & Bob McHugh NOW contributors

I

t seems odd to talk about convertibles in the middle of winter, but why not? There is nothing wrong with “dreaming” a bit about warm weather and sunshine. Stunningly attractive, the Infiniti G37 IPL convertible is a real attentiongetter. Power, performance, personality, seating for four, a retractable hard top that folds neatly behind the rear seat at the push of a switch, wind in hair, what more could you ask for … well, perhaps a trunk that doesn’t disappear when you put the top down. The Infiniti G also comes in sedan and coupe versions and drive goes to the rear on all four wheels. Although all three versions share the same basic chassis with an identical wheelbase, exterior body styling and interiors are unique to each G37 version. The convertible only comes with a reardrive powertrain and in three trim levels, Sport, Premium and IPL (Infiniti Performance Line). My tester was an IPL, which comes with a hotter version of the 3.7-litre V6 engine, a firmer sportier suspension plus a wheel and an aero package. Colour choices are limited to black or white and there are no options. The extra 18 horsepower from the V6 engine is thanks in a large part to a bigger bore exhaust with massive tail pipes, which also give the IPL a distinctive sound. Engine tuning pushes its max horsepower output up to 7,400 rpm and the high-flow exhaust is a dual design with separate left and right pipes. A 30 per cent reduction in exhaust back pressure is achieved versus the base engine, which uses a two-into-one Y-pipe type exhaust system design. Increased front and rear suspension spring and stabilizer rates, performance shocks, a sporttuned steering gear and an enhanced 4-wheel disc braking system are other ingredients in the IPL performance transformation. The trunks disappearance coincides with the highly entertaining fully automated loading procedure for the three-piece

retractable hard top. The folding and stacking mechanism in action is like watching a scene from a Transformers movie – truly an engineering marvel. When the top is all neatly stowed in back, however, there’s only a sliver of trunk cargo space remaining.

logos on the upholstery are additional distinctive touches.

Secure

The convertible comes with reinforced front side members, front pillars and body sills, to make up for the reduction in body

Infiniti Page 28

Style

Attractive from any angle, the G’s flowing curves gently bow over the engine and front wheels. Infiniti’s signature doublearch grille is flanked by stylized L-shape bi-xenon headlight assemblies up front. The IPL comes with a unique front fascia with integrated fog lights, black finishers, sculpted side sills and chrome exhaust tips. An IPL buyer gets the choice of Aspen Pearl (white) or Malbec Black. Generally impressively tight panel gap lines are somewhat compromised at the rear where the convertible top is stored. In fairness, his body section is designed to open in two directions and functions as both a trunk lid and a cover for the folded roof.

Inside

A unique feature of the dash is an instrument panel pod that moves in unison with the adjustable steering column. This guarantees the driver always has an unobstructed view of the instrument panel gauges. It’s a power operated feature via a four-way stubby switch lever that can also move the steering wheel closer or further away from the driver. The domed hard top offers front passengers more head room than the coupe edition of G. Not surprisingly, rear passenger space is limited, especially leg room. Conveniently located on the front seatback are switches allow easy movement of the front seats. On a slope, however, the large doors can overcome the spring-loaded stop and tend to swing back. The front seats on an IPL edition come with perforated centre panels in the leather upholstery, which allows them to vent cool air, if desired and in addition to having a heating feature.

strength that a fixed roof offers. Concealed dual pop-up roll bars, behind the rear seats, also spring into action and protect occupants, if the car were to flip-over in a collision. In a high-speed frontal collision, the engine is designed to slide under the cabin and the bulkhead is double-wall constructed for added front passenger protection. The driveshaft also has a break-away feature. Dual-stage front air bags, doormounted side-impact air bags and active head restraints on the front seats complete an excellent safety package.

Drive

You get that “this-car-wasmade-for-me” feeling soon after settling-in behind the wheel of a G37. Snug supportive seats, controls that are easy to find and use, and with the top up, driver sight lines are better than you expect in a convertible. When started cold, the engine initially seems to lack some power but it quickly builds up steam as the rumble from the exhaust settles into its rhythmic pattern.

The IPL’s big bore, easy-flow system is considerably louder than the regular G37. The constant drone from the exhaust at highway cruising speeds may be off-putting for some buyers, even though the extra power is inviting. In addition, you also have to push the engine higher into its rev range to feel benefit of the extra grunt provided, which requires a more aggressive driving style. The engine is matched to an electronically controlled 7-speed automatic transmission with a quick-shift DS (Drive Sport) mode that also provides downshift rev-matching. A delight to use, this transmission can adapt to your personal driving style and has a DS (drive sport) mode, if you’re in the mood for more spirited driving. Solid magnesium steering column mounted paddle shifters allow manual shifts at any time or mode, and in manual mode it stays in the gear selected by the driver. The G37 is built on what Infiniti calls a front-midship chassis. It puts heavy drivetrain components in a more central position between the axles and this allows better handling char-

Sales slow in region

The number of residential property sales of detached, attached and apartment properties reached 1,686 on the region’s Multiple Listing Service in November, a 28.6 per cent decline compared to the 2,360 sales in November 2011 and a 12.7 per cent decline compared to the 1,931 home sales in October 2012, according to numbers released earlier this month by the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. November sales were 30.3 per cent below the 10-year November sales average of 2,420. “Home sellers appear more inclined to remove their properties from the market today rather than lower prices to sell their properties. On the other hand, buyers appear to be expecting prices to moderate,” Eugen Klein, REBGV president said.

New listings for detached, attached and apartment properties in Greater Vancouver totalled 2,758 in November. This represents a 14.4 per cent decline compared to November 2011 when 3,222 properties were listed for sale on the MLS and a 36.2 per cent decline compared to the 4,323 new listings in October 2012. New listings were 12.9 per cent below the 10-year November average of 3,168. At 15,689, the total number of residential property listings on the MLS increased 13 per cent from this time last year and declined 9.7 per cent compared to October 2012. Total listings in the region have declined by nearly 3,000 properties since reaching a peak of 18,493 in June. See www.rebgv.org for more.

Dancers up for the Challenge The Americans are coming to SFU showcase

Tom Berridge

sports editor

A Burnaby pair took a big step towards a possible fourth Canadian ice dance title. Burnaby’s ZhaoKai Pang, 17, and Port Moody teen Madelaine Edwards won the junior dance final with career-best scores in the short and free programs at the Skate Canada Challenge in Regina on Sunday. Pang and Edwards led after the short dance with a 60.56 score. They extended that lead over eventual runner-up Mackenzie Bent and Garrett MacKeen of Eastern Ontario with an 81.77-point score, skating to The Artist theme in the free dance. “We were really happy we walked away with two solid performances. It gives us confidence for the rest of the season,” said Pang. The two Burnaby Centre of Excellence skaters are coached by the successful former Olympic medallist dance pair of Megan Wing and Aaron Lowe. In the five years since Pang and Edward have been a competitive pair, they have won a national title at every level, beginning with a juvenile gold medal in 2009 and prenovice and novice crowns the following two seasons. Last year, Pang and Edwards won the silver medal at the nationals. “When we step onto the ice, we want everyone to be watching us,” said Pang. “We really enjoy the performance part of ice dance. We do enjoy interacting with the audience and interacting with each other. It’s an important part.” This season, the two skaters impressed judges on the junior Grand Prix

Junior gold: Burnaby ice dancers ZhaoKai Pang and Madelaine Edwards skate to The Artist at the Skate Canada Challenge in Regina. circuit with back-to-back bronze medals in two international events. In August, Pang and Edwards garnered 113.73 points at a junior dance competition in Courchevel, France. Two months later, the duo improved their final number to 135.01, just one point shy of a silver medal at a Grand Prix event in Istanbul, Turkey. Sunday’s seven-point improvement from their last competition was further evidence that the onice chemistry between the two continues to bear fruit, despite the fact the dance partners narrowly missed making the six-team junior

Grand Prix final, finishing as a second alternate. “So far, thank God, their growth is the same, it’s a hurdle that we have overcome. There is something special with this team – they get along,” Lowe said, adding the two could have scored even higher numbers but for some injury issues two weeks before the Challenge. A win at the upcoming nationals in January would ensure Pang and Edwards of a berth at the world junior championships in Milan, Italy early next year. Lowe and Wing were also delighted with the

results of the novice dance competition, where Burnaby pair Danielle Wu and Spencer Soo defeated the Quebec pair of Christina Carriera and Simon-Pierre MalettePaquett, a team that had beaten them soundly in an earlier competition. “It was a good shock,” said Lowe, who helped coach three other Burnaby centre novice teams to topseven finishes. Alexa Linden and Tyler Miller came from ninth place in the short program to finish on the podium in third place. Dance Page 40

CLA lacrosse fight ban challenged by WLA governors Tom Berridge

sports editor

Western Lacrosse Association governors voted unanimously to oppose the Canadian association’s recent ban on fighting. On Monday, the Canadian Lacrosse Association and its board of directors announced a change to Rule 45 in the box lacrosse rule and situation hand-

book that would levy an automatic game misconduct for any player who engages in a fight. Subsection (b) adds if there is a clear instigator or aggressor in a fight, the non-offending player shall not receive an automatic ejection from the game. The ruling change would come into effect for the upcoming 2013 season and affect all levels of lacrosse played in Canada.

A WLA governor, who wished to remain anonymous, said the local senior A league operates outside of CLA guidelines on some rulings. But when WLA teams compete at national championships, they abide by the official handbook. At the WLA annual general meeting held last Saturday, team governors voted to continue with the existing 2012 fight rules and

ignore the CLA edict, said the unnamed governor. Team officials were asked not to comment on the rule change while the CLA comes up with a response to the action taken by the WLA. “I’m not happy for the fans, the players, and it’s not good for the game,” said the governor. “I’m very, very upset the CLA has gone down this road.”

In the CLA press release, fighting was described as an unecessary risk, citing the potential for severe and long-term injury due to the possibility of concussions. “The rule change allows our athletes to showcase the sport that we love and keeps the focus on the aspects that make our sport so great – speed, athleticism and skill,” said CLA president Joey Harris, in the press release.

MAJOR MIDGET HOCKEY

Hockey pros earn game stars

Giants to finish the first half of season in north Tom Berridge sports editor

The Northwest Giants will finish on top of the B.C. Major Midget hockey league at the holiday break, despite what happens this weekend. The Giants will travel to Prince George this weekend for a two-game series against the third-place Cariboo Cougars. The Cougars trail the Giants by six points in the standings and are just two shy of the second-place Okanagan Rockets. The Burnaby-based Giants kept ahead of the pack with a weekend sweep of the South Island Royals at Burnaby Winter Club last week. Todd Cole got the gamewinning goal for the Giants

in last Saturday’s 5-3 win over the Royals. Jarid Lukosevicius padded his team-leading 17th goal of the season with his third of the series and game-winner in a 5-2 win on Sunday. Eric Margo and Anthony Conti both had a goal and two assists in the win Sunday, while Jackson Cressey added one goal and a single helper. Jansen Harkins chipped in two assists. In the opening game, Conti assisted on the Giants’ first three goals of the game. Zach Landon and Harkins also combined for four helpers between them. Rookie goalie Bo Didur continues to lead the league with a 2.00 goals against average.

Swimmer records first NCAA mark Mariya Chekanovych of Burnaby became the first Simon Fraser University swimmer to record a NCAA A time following a 1:02.09 clocking in the women’s 100-yard breaststroke final at the Washington Husky invitational swim meet on Dec. 1. With the sub 1:03.00 time, Chekanovych qualified for the NCAA Division II championships in March. Chekanovych also raced to a second-place finish in the women’s 200-yd. breaststroke on the Sunday against stiff competition from 12 university teams, including secondranked Grand Canyon University, defending Canadian Interuniversity Sports national champion University of Calgary, as well as several NCAA university Div. I programs. Chekanovych picked up another medal in the medley relay, helping the Clan team, including Kristine Lawson, Alex Schofield and Nicole Cossey, to third. Cossey opened the meet with a fourth-place finish in the women’s 50-yd. freestyle. Julian Monks posted a number of top-five times, placing fourth in the men’s 100-yd. breast, and fifth in the 400yd. individual medley. Monks also shared a fifth-place finish with the SFU 200-yd. medley relay. Diitar Ivanov also came fourth in the men’s 200-yd. backstroke, while Carman Nam placed fourth in the women’s 1,650-yd free.

Tyler McNeely earned a second-star nod for the South Carolina Stingrays, assisting on both goals in a 2-1 victory over the Greenville Road Warriors in an East Coast Hockey League game on Dec. 9. McNeely is currently seventh in the Eastern conference with 22 points, including seven goals. Earlier, the former Burnaby Express Jr. A captain scored two goals and assisted on two others to earn another second-team game star in a 5-1 win over the Elmira Jackels.

High game: Burnaby South Rebels senior Manpreet Nijjar, in black, scored

a team-high 20 points in a 62-51 win over Steveston-London in the first round of the senior girls’ Telus Basketball Classic last week.

South Rebels win Telus opener Burnaby/New Westminster district rival Burnaby South Rebels made it to the second round of the Telus Basketball Classic last week. Manpreet Nijjar opened the pre-season tournament season with a team-high 20 points in South’s 62-51 win over Steveston-London. Junior Desiree Lister chipped in with a dozen points for the Rebel girls. South dropped its second-round game to No. 1-ranked Brookswood 86-62. Stephanie Labbé scored 17. Lister added 15 points.

BURNABY SPORTS BRIEFS Douglas Road Elementary School is this season’s competitive grades 6 and 7 girls’ volleyball team champion. The central Burnaby school went undefeated in the 10-team district championships, including a win over Marlborough in the Burnaby banner final. The Douglas Road team, including Lara Delfin, Alice Ko, Krystal Mendoza, Christel Cardenas, Kelcey Mawema, Gladys Bakajika, Jacquelyn Nopre and Sylvia Ly, knocked off Seaforth A to advance to the final. Douglas also defeated Second Street Community School to win the North Zone title.

A goal in Red Team win

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored an empty-net goal to help Team Red defeat Team White at the Canadian junior hockey selection camp in Calgary on Tuesday. Thirty-six players are vying for 23 spots on the Canadian national team for the world junior champion-

ships, which face off on Boxing Day in Ufa, Russia. Burnaby’s Karl Alzner, a defenceman with the Washington Capitals, was an honorary coach in the team camp game.

Dance: continued from page 39

Brianna Delmaestro and Graeme Gordon finished sixth and Andie-Lynn Gingrich and Liam Kinrade were seventh overall. “We want this school to be thriving with results,” Lowe added. “We haven’t had a senior champion yet, but we’re steadily improving. Right now, we’re in the early stages.” But the end game for Lowe and Wing is to take one of their dance pairs to the Olympics and win a medal one day. “That’s where we were, and we hope to take teams beyond what we did,” he said.

Juniors get new coach

Mike O’Reilly was named the new head coach of the junior A Burnaby Lakers on Tuesday by incoming general manager Gary Passmore. O’Reilly, who takes over the coaching reins from John Wilson, played his minor lacrosse in Burnaby and was a member of the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame Burnaby Cablevision team of the 1970s. Wilson was let go by the junior club on Dec. 5.

Clan into the top 10

The SFU women’s basketball team moved up to ninth place in the USA Today Top 25 Coaches Poll on Tuesday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: This week starts with hope – perhaps too much hope, as your logic weakens in the face of fond feelings or fond fantasies. Still, enjoy the friendship, popularity and happiness Sunday/Monday. By Monday eve, retreat to plan, contemplate and rest. You might experience a philosophical difference with someone, or a snag in dealing with government or institutions Tuesday, but Wednesday holds a sparkling love attraction, or a smooth breakthrough in legal, educational or travel zones. Your energy and charisma come roaring back Thursday into Saturday morning – start something ambitious. Taurus April 20-May 20: Focus on career, business, your ambitions and prestige relationships Sunday/ Monday. Though this is a quiet, deep month, involving big decisions in lifestyle, finances and intimacy, lighter notes come midweek, as entertainment, popularity, friends and optimism buoy your spirits. Thursday through Saturday morning, though, seek solitude and quiet; rest, contemplate and plan. This interval might bring a new, lucky idea involving your career, government or head office (or some authority) and the fruits of research, detective work. An investment or financial manoeuvre might be involved. Gemini May 21-June 20: This is your last week of exciting meetings, new opportunities and new horizons (perhaps relocation). Take advantage – make contacts, travel, call, make your bid. You feel wise and loving Sunday/Monday – but don’t blend a love relationship (even worse, a secret or collusive link) with your ambitions/career. By Monday night through Wednesday your actions and reputation will be scrutinized by higher-ups: if you pass, success follows. Be cautious to Tuesday noon, then pursue your goals. You could meet a new love Wednesday. Thursday/Friday bring light romance, social joy and new hopes.

Cancer June 21-July 22: This is your last week of drudgery. Tackle all chores, get them out of the way, because several new opportunities and friendship prospects will arise Friday into late January. You’ll want your energy and time to be free for these. Sunday/Monday feature investments, debt, large finances, sexual urges, subconscious desires, health diagnosis and lifestyle decisions. Midweek emphasizes far travel, wisdom, learning, gentle love. It also brings splendid career/work luck and inspiration (Wednesday). More emphasis on your career, community status, Thursday/Friday. Saturday, happiness! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: This is your last week of “heavy romance” or deep creativity, so don’t waste it. (By “heavy,” I mean deep or significant.) Sunday/Monday bring partnership prospects, exciting meetings, new horizons, opportunities – and potential opposition, even enmity. You might be deceiving yourself about the chances of sex with someone very attractive. Be aware, astute. Midweek emphasizes sex, intimacy, large finances, changes and commitment. True love’s possible – you might even agree to wed. Wisdom, a mellow mood, culture, rituals, far travel, learning – and love – flow Thursday/Friday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: It’s the last week of emphasis on your home, on security, real estate, kids/parents, retirement, etc. Though this zone begins to fade now in terms of big projects, demands and burdens, it now begins to bless you with sweet results and affection, especially Wednesday. However, don’t try to force “home delights” on a partner or prospective mate Sunday. (This day and Monday are for chores: eat and dress sensibly.) Midweek brings exciting meetings, new opportunities. Thursday to Saturday feature sexual urges, financial luck. Friday begins a month of romance, risk and pleasure.

Dec. 16 - Dec. 22, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The fast pace of paperwork, travel, errands and calls continues – until Friday, when a month of deeper, domestic concerns will begin. Sunday/Monday are romantic – take a risk, collect your reward. Applies in love, and money too. But beware misunderstanding the import of a remark or message about work or health-related drugs. DON’T buy machinery. Midweek brings many chores (tackle them) – and a possible heart-thumping development in love. You might meet a new mate, or “rediscover” one. Thursday/Friday emphasize cooperation, opportunities, barriers and enmity – pick the positive. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Continue to chase money or collect possessions. Friday begins a month that won’t contain the same solidity of reward – so go all out before that day. Sunday/Monday feature home, security, foundations. Don’t let a love of money (or possessiveness) interfere with a slowly blossoming romance or creative project. Midweek emphasizes romance, adventure, risk, self-expression, love, teaching, beauty, pleasure and creativity – but it also offers “sweet luck” (Wednesday) in work/money. (In some cases, sudden love.) Tackle chores Thursday/ Friday. Saturday brings money opportunity. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high. Remain focused on big, important projects, people, relationships. Let the small, the details, paperwork, etc., wait until February – but tackle the most pressing of these Sunday/ Monday. In past weeks you’ve attracted attention (don’t blame me if you’ve hidden from it). Now to Jan. 7 you radiate a subtle charm that can turn friends into lovers, competitors into friends. Remember, until June/12 you have to be the chaser in love and money (if you want luck). Home, midweek. Romance, creativity Thursday/Friday – risk it!

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Stay quiet, restful, contemplative until Friday – then one of the best months of your year begins. Until then, plan nearfuture actions/projects.Chase money Sunday/Monday. A sensual attraction might lure you, but deception or illusion can make you uncertain of your footing, or bring an element of gossip or “sneaking around.” Midweek brings errands, casual friends, paperwork (and newspapers) – drive carefully, as you’re a bit weary. Head home Thursday/Friday – Thursday for rest, Friday for getting ready to launch. Saturday your energy rises: chase romance or grab an opportunity. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Enjoy your social life while you can – Friday brings a month of quietude, rest and recuperation, thinking and planning. But until then, the social delights continue! Your energy and charisma draw others Sunday/Monday: start things. But shop only carefully: (mild) deception invades money matters. Midweek, chase money, pursue new clients, etc. Buy electrical, auto or computer items afternoonTuesday to 2 p.m.(PST)Wednesday.Siblings, casual friends, trips, calls, visits, news, errands and paperwork fill Thursday/Friday. Friendship might turn to romance. Home, rest, Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Remain ambitious. Put your best self forward for bosses, parents, other VIPs – they will favour you now to early January. Be restful, quiet, contemplate and plan, Sunday/Monday. A parent or child might do you a favour – or argue. Your energy and magnetism rise nicely midweek – be bold, see and be seen, ask favours, start projects and relationships (before 2:30 p.m. Wednesday). Your money luck rises briefly Thursday/Friday. Avoid engine/electronic/computer purchases Thursday afternoon. Friday begins a month of social delights, flirtations, wish fulfillment and optimism! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
