Seriously applying makeup

High brow:

Makeup instructor Yasmine Khan transforms Ambrose Christopher into a drag queen at a makeup course run by Burnaby Community and Continuing Education.

Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Students learning the art of extravagant makeup transformed women into dazzling brides and men into divas in Burnaby recently. Burnaby Community and Continuing Education, a branch of the local school district, runs an adult course in makeup artistry, where students practise airbrushing and specialized makeup. The Feb. 2 class was about Indian bridal makeup and ceremony. Instructor Yasmine Khan said it’s important for makeup artists to know how to cater to the Indian bridal industry. “We have a lot of IndoCanadian (people) in Vancouver, and it’s definitely important for a makeup artist to know this,” Khan said. “An Indian bride will book their makeup artist a year in advance, it’s that important to them.”

For the Feb. 5 class, students brought a male model to transform into a drag queen. Khan said drag queen makeup requires very advanced skills. “The reason why is because you have to understand the

fundamentals, and you have to understand the bone structure of the face in order to manipulate it in bringing it out, and creating contour and highlights,” Khan said. “And also being able to project makeup from a distance,

and having to project some kind of an emotion form a distance, and that’s all done through contour, highlight and placement.” The students learned techniques like brow blocking, beard covering, contouring and stage

makeup. The next course starts on March 5 and runs on evenings and Saturdays at the Brentwood Education Centre, at 4247 Lougheed Hwy. To learn more or to sign up, call 604-664-8888.

City housing complex infested with bed bugs Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Residents of a Burnaby B.C. housing complex are fed up with a chronic infestation of bed bugs that has persisted despite numerous attempts to eradicate the bloodsuckers. Stratford Gardens, a multi-building housing complex on Pandora Street, has been infested with the bugs for years. “It’s on ongoing thing,” said resident Marilyn McLeod. “I’m tired of this.” Nirmal Bains, another resident, said

she had no bed to sleep on because of the bugs. “I just hope someone can do something about them,” she said. “It’s gone on so long.” Rick Rizzuto has lived at Stratford Gardens for approximately eight years, and he estimated that the infestation has lasted the past couple of years. “I’ve been bitten. They like me,” he said. “I would get a new bed and a new couch, … but you can’t up and spend $2,000 every time there’s an infestation.” Rizzuto has seen the bugs crawling on

THE ‘MEAT MAN’ MADE THE FIRST BID FOR LUCY – $500 FOR BOTH HER AND HER YOUNG FOAL

Somebody’s ‘throwaway’ now saves others By Jennifer Moreau and Ashley Kim

staff reporters

In the summer of 2002, Lucy, a small quarter horse, was up for auction and on the verge of being slaughtered for meat. At her side, was Hope, her young foal born with severely bent legs. The “meat man” made the first bid – $500 for both – but Julie Macmillan from J&M Acres horse rescue in Maple Ridge outbid him and took the mom and her crippled baby. A Maple Ridge family agreed to foster the two and keep Hope, and North Vancouver resident Kriss Pless planned to adopt Lucy. There was the possibility that Hope would have to be put down, but since she was not in pain, Macmillan approached various vets till “She was pretty she found one who would give wild when I Hope a chance. brought her here. The operations She just really would cost thousands, and there didn’t get the was no guarancaptive life.” tee of success. Maple Ridge KRISS PLESS kindergarten Horse owner kids heard about Hope’s plight in the local newspaper and started fundraising to help pay for the operations. “I had adopted Lucy, but I would go out there,” Pless said. “So the children would come and visit the horses, and feed them cookies.” More fundraising was done, and after several surgeries, Hope’s legs were set straight. She is now able to run like any other horse. Meanwhile, Lucy had her own adjustments to make. Once Hope was weaned off her mother, Pless took Lucy in and brought her to the Burnaby Horsemen’s Association stables, close to Burnaby Lake. As a breeding mare, she hadn’t really been handled by people before. “She was pretty wild when I brought her here,” said Pless. “She just didn’t really get the captive life, because she had been out in hundreds of acres, and then brought into the city. We had to do training and say what was acceptable and what wasn’t. Now, we go into parades, we chase some cows, we do all kinds of fun stuff. She adapted beautifully.” Pless takes Lucy, now 17 years old, to two North Vancouver schools twice a year to educate children about horses and horse slaughter and to fundraise for

Rescued: Kriss Pless with her horse, Lucy, who was saved from the meat market and now resides in a stall at the Burnaby Horsemens’ Association. Pless adopted Lucy from J&M Acres horse rescue in Maple Ridge. She takes Lucy to two North Vancouver schools to educate the children about horses and to fundraise for more rescues. more rescues. Lucy does English and Western riding demos, and children line up to pet her afterwards. “(Lucy) dips her head down for each kid to touch her. She’s just really sweet,” Pless said. “She’s somebody’s throwaway, and look what she did for the kids.” Lucy seems to have a soft spot for children and is well natured when the association holds open-house events. “This little mare, you can do everything to. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. She just loves all the attention you can give her. She doesn’t say yes or no to anybody. She just really

likes people,” said Pless. “She packs everybody around. She’s so great that way. To think that she almost went in a can is crazy.” Hope still resides with the same family in Maple Ridge and now rides and jumps as a “perfectly healthy wonderful horse,” according to Pless. And after a decade apart, Lucy and Hope were recently reunited. Pless wasn’t sure if they recognized each other. “They had a little sniff at each other,” she said. Having a horse is a “real labour of love,” according to Pless. “This little mare is so special to me,”

she said. “(Horses) are just so forgiving. Look at what they let us do to them. We ride on them and constantly train them. They’re just so sweet that way.” The next open house at the Burnaby Equestrian Centre is in summer, but no date has been set yet. (Check www. burnabyhorsemensassociation.com for updates.) The public can visit Lucy at the open house. There will be demos, pony rides for kids and a concession stand.

SPECIAL FORUM IN CITY

Gay athletes share coming out stories Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The Burnaby Teachers’ Association is teaming up with the board of education to host a public event on homophobia in sports, featuring a panel discussion with gay and lesbian athletes sharing their “coming out” stories. “Society has come a long way with respect to gay and lesbian issues, and most people recognize that these are essentially matters of equality and freedom,” said the association’s Frank Bonvino, in a press release. “This being said, there has not been significant progress to date in the sports arena. Currently, no professional athlete in hockey, baseball, soccer, or hockey has come out while still playing professionally. It’s about time things change, and this event is another step in the right direction.” The event will be open to the general public, not just the school community. The speakers include Olympic gold medallist Angela Hucles, a former U.S. national team soccer player, and Scott Heggart, a hockey player from the University of Ottawa. Heggart will speak about coming out

in the hockey community and how people can create a more supportive and inclusive atmosphere for athletes. The panellists are connected to You Can Play, a non-profit group that promotes respect and safety for all athletes, regardless of their sexual orientation. Bonvino said there will also be a third speaker and a facilitator, but they’re still sorting out the details. Bonvino sees the event as a way to promote the school district’s policy 5.45, which aims to fight homophobia in schools. “An event like this is a great way to bring that to life. We’re hoping it’s going to be the beginning of something big here,“ Bonvino said. According to Bonvino, there’s been a lack of progress with fighting homophobia in the sports world. “Homophobia and chauvinistic attitudes can really be prevalent in the locker room culture,” he said. “We want to break down those barriers.” The panel discussion, titled You Can Play Burnaby, is on March 28, at 7 p.m. at the Michael J. Fox Theatre, at 7373 MacPherson Ave. jmoreau@burnabynow.com

It’s been less than a week since a three-alarm fire destroyed a four-storey apartment complex at 3526 Smith Ave. and many of those residents are still scrambling to find places to live, clothes to wear and replacements for all their lost belongings. The Burnaby Task Force on Homelessness is working closely with the City of Burnaby, the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, the Progressive Housing Society and the South Burnaby Neighborhood House to help those people displaced by the fire. The Salvation Army Metrotown citadel at 6125 Nelson Ave. is coordinating donations of household items and cash from the public and is the first point of contact for many of the victims. Charmaigne Pflugrath, the City of Burnaby’s emergency program coordinator, said she and her staff worked almost non-stop for the first 72 hours after the hour, helping people with accommodations, clothing and incidentals. Pflugrath said the province was able to offer minor extensions on the 72 hours of emergency help on a case-by-case basis. Now, the help the residents will get will come from the citadel. According to Wanda Mulholland of the Burnaby Task Force on Homelessness, the citadel will be open each day except Sunday for people needing assistance or for people who want to drop off items or cash. “The Salvation Army has opened up their doors to be the recovery centre,” said Mulholland. “We’re accepting clothes and items like dishes and small appliances.” Mulholland said the bigger obstacle is finding places for these people

to live, an especially difficult task because there weren’t many affordable places available for rent in Burnaby before the fire. “If anyone has an affordable place to rent in Burnaby, please contact me directly at 604-317-8114,” said Mulholland, who added she had received several calls on Wednesday morning with rental leads. People looking to drop off furniture are asked to call ahead to Helping Families in Need, near the corner of Gilmore Avenue and First Avenue. Call 604-294-3087 to arrange a drop-off time. “It’s always tragic to lose your home, your belongings, and in some cases, your pet,” Cor Zandbergen, Red Cross disaster management volunteer said in a press release. “Together with the other agencies, we will do all

we can to help the residents get back on their feet.” Red Cross volunteer workers provide vital assistance for people’s basic needs, including shelter, food, assistance linking to local resources, clothing and household items. Red Cross assistance does not duplicate assistance provided through insurance, government or other agencies. The fire, which left approximately 100 people homeless, occurred just after midnight on Sunday in a 50year-old building that did not have a sprinkler system. There were 41 firefighters who fought the blaze and the Burnaby Fire Department utilized seven engines, three ladder trucks, a rescue truck and a command unit in the multi-day effort. alau@burnabynow.com

LOCAL BUS SERVICE CHALLENGED For many Burnaby North residents, getting to-and-from a main transit route can mean a long walk from home. Thankfully, there are the C1 and C2 shuttles, which serve the Burnaby Heights and Capitol Hill neighbourhoods, connecting local families, students, and nearly 2,000 seniors with the Hastings corridor. Unfortunately, a scheme is afoot to change the routes these shuttles take, redirecting traffic to Kensington, and reducing service from every 30 minutes to every 60. On December 2, 2012, I hosted an important meeting in my constituency office, bringing together Translink and the Burnaby Heights Merchants Association (this was prior to a public meeting on December 12, which I was unable to attend). My hope was that the concerns of the community would make Translink change their minds. Regrettably, that was not the outcome. The proposed changes are still on the table, and families who rely on the service could soon face difficulties getting to where they need to go. If redirected to Kensington, where there are only 38 businesses and three medical facilities, commuters will face reduced access to the 350 businesses and 40 medical facilities (29 of which are located west of Willingdon where the revised route doesn’t go) at Burnaby Heights. Shoppers rely on this service for access to businesses; seniors rely on it for access to vital health care. Translink needs to re-examine the role of the C1 and C2 shuttles, treat them as part of an essential service, and keep transit user-friendly for Burnaby North residents. I urge everyone to contact Translink and tell them how the proposed changes would make life harder for everyone in the community. To see For questions or comments, contact me at Richard T.

They cannot offer their supporters any more free rides, and they also can’t cut community services anymore - triggering more ugly headlines and giving Adrian Dix ammunition. The problem is Dix can, at this point, just criticize and stand back hoping no one notices that he cleverly avoids offering any clear, viable alternatives. It reminds us of an election a couple of decades ago when the hot topic was the government taking casino funds. An NDP insider confided that he hoped the

Liberals would do it, even though the NDP had criticized it. He knew that government coffers were in desperate need of a new cash flow, and casinos would be a cash cow. And, when the NDP won the next election, they could tut tut about it all they wanted, but they all knew that they would never roll back the decision and lose all that money. We think Dix can tut tut all he wants now, but he knows, as do others, that the NDP isn’t going to roll back anything that can bring in much-needed cash.

High cost, low pay for those under 45 IN MY OPINION Paul Kershaw

W

e all know housing prices have gone way up compared to a generation ago. This is especially true in B.C.’s Lower Mainland – now the most expensive place to live on the continent. According to the Canadian Real Estate Association, the average cost of housing is $780,000 in Metro Vancouver, a region that includes Burnaby, Port Moody, Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge. By contrast, the average cost in 1976 was a paltry $62,000 – or $240,000 in today’s dollars, after adjusting for inflation. Housing prices that are more than three-times higher are great news for some. Since many bought homes decades ago, far higher housing values mean far more wealth for them. But what’s been good for retiring parents is generally bad for their kids and grandchildren. High home prices squeeze generations under age 45 with crushing debt, which they must pay with wages that have fallen 13 per cent compared to a generation ago, and in jobs that rarely

contribute pensions. It would be one thing to accept that times are tougher for younger people if we were working as a community, province and country to try to mitigate the squeeze. But we’re not. Governments spend just $12,000 on benefits and services per Canadian under 45, compared to nearly $45,000 for every retiree. This is not a “good deal” if you are under 45. Despite Canada’s economy producing more wealth than ever before, investments made in their generations look a little scant, or unbalanced. And that’s before talking about the larger government and environmental debts they inherit. Still, younger generations are doing all they can to adapt. To compete for better employment, they squeeze in years more of education and tuition. To buy a place, they accept jobs or contracts that require them to work years more to save a down payment. Many wait years longer to move out of their parents’ homes or to establish their financial independence. And when they do, they often commute long distances to work, especially when living in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge. Or they give up the dream of home ownership to accept high rents, as is growing more common even in Burnaby, let alone in Vancouver.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Logical to legalize marijuana Dear Editor:

For some time, I have believed that the only logical way of dealing with marijuana is to legalize possession for personal use. I don’t think marijuana is harmless, but neither is alcohol or tobacco. The cost of trying to enforce the current laws greatly exceeds any possible benefit resulting from seeking to prevent people from using this drug. Huge amounts of public police and court funding are wasted in the futile effort to enforce the law. A great deal of lucrative criminal activity occurs as a result of the current situation and disrespect for the law results from the belief by many people that the law is wrong. Distribution should be through government drug

stores, and quality should be strictly controlled to prevent distribution of overly strong or chemically tainted product. The government would be able to charge a substantial tax and/or profit and still charge much less than current prices. The great stumbling block to legalization has always been the United States. If Canada legalized and the U.S. didn’t, they would be likely to impose much stricter border controls, which would damage our business interests. Since Washington State has voted to legalize marijuana, that concern no longer exists. As far as I am concerned, possession of marijuana for personal use should be legalized as quickly as possible, and I call upon the federal government to do so without delay. Garth Evans, Burnaby

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Smart to teach Mandarin

NDP gov’t would cost us

Dear Editor:

Dear Editor:

This past Tuesday I had the opportunity to attend the Burnaby Board of Education meeting. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Forest Grove Elementary had a program put in place to give primary age children a chance to learn Mandarin in school. Language acquisition has been proven to be easier the younger a person happens to be when starting to learn the language. I understand the importance of maintaining our historical languages of English and French, but especially in the Lower Mainland, Mandarin is an important language and spoken by many people. It makes sense for our students to start learning the language at a young age. Congratulations to the Burnaby board of education for taking on this pilot project. I hope as time and funding allows, the program is expanded to more elementary schools and serves as a compliment to the French language program, not as a competitor to it.

History has shown that the NDP will always focus on helping big unions rather than people if they are elected. An NDP government would not be focused on the economy and would simply scare business and investment away from B.C. This has happened every time an NDP government has been elected in this province, and it would happen again. NDP governments want to spend more and more money – your money – and to do that they will increase taxes. That will really hit small and medium-sized businesses hard, as it did the last time the NDP governed this province. In the end, businesses will have to reduce workers’ hours and even lay people off to pay those taxes. It’s a slippery slope that we’ve seen before, and it would not be long before people stop investing in B.C., which would make things even worse for our economy. So, for anyone considering voting for Adrian Dix and the NDP, ask yourself what it really means for you and the people of this province.

Trevor Ritchie, Burnaby

The latter has become the quintessential generational city, where people own homes primarily if they got into the housing market long ago or are among the richest of the next generation. Fact is, postponing more, working more, and scaling down expectations for the size and location of housing are key coping mechanisms for many younger people today. Ironically, others routinely overlook these coping strategies when judging younger generations to be lazy, consumerist, even entitled – a charge that flies in the face of data showing governments annually spend nearly four times more on benefits and services for each Canadian retiree compared to each Canadian under 45. Although they try to cope, most in the younger generations have a big problem because they can’t work their way out of the time and income

squeeze unless they give up something fundamental – the opportunity to have the family they may want or the financial foundation they’ve patched together. Since two earners barely bring home today what one breadwinner did in the 1970s, we’ve gone from 40 hour work weeks to closer to 80 hours. The result? Generations raising young kids are squeezed for time at home. They are squeezed for income because housing prices are nearly double, even though young people often live in condos, or trade yards for time-consuming commutes. And they are squeezed for services like child care, which are essential for parents to deal with rising costs, but are in short supply, and cost more than university. We can change this. While the deck may be stacked against younger generations now, we can get “A Better Generational Deal” – one that gives all generations a chance. A

deal that safeguards our medical care and retirement security without sacrificing our children’s present and our grandchildren’s future. As it turns out, residents of Burnaby, Port Moody, Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge have particular power to bring about this better generational deal. Why? Because as I’ll show in my next column, these cities are home to provincial ridings where recent elections have been especially close. So if even just a few hundred people add their vote to “reduce the squeeze,” it can make a big difference to the next election result. That’s precisely when politicians are most likely to listen. ◆ Paul Kershaw is a policy professor at the University of British Columbia and can be reached at gensqueeze.ca.

Activist ‘disappointed’ no shark fin ban in Burnaby Stefania Seccia staff reporter

It seems sharks aren’t the only ones disappointed over Burnaby’s decision to not ban shark fin sales – a Vancouver activist was disgruntled to hear the news as well. Anthony Marr of the Vancouver Animal Defense League made an appeal to council on the issue last June, which is what prompted the report from city staff that in the end recommended against enacting a shark fin ban. At a council meeting Monday night, council voted against a shark fin ban bylaw, stating it’s beyond the city’s scope to regulate and enforce – but is within the federal and provincial government’s. “I’m very disappointed by Burnaby council,” Marr told the Burnaby NOW in a phone interview. “They are passing the buck. “They say there is no way they could enforce a law, which is absolutely erroneous, because city hall has the power to grant and rescind business licenses … and they further have the power to impose a fine.” The Vancouver activist said the dwindling shark populations don’t have time to wait for “politicians dragging their feet,” as approximately 73 million sharks are finned every year, including endangered and vulnerable species. “There is no reason whatsoever that they are taking this rather cowardly step by not going ahead with this ban,” Marr said. “Everybody has to take responsibility and the municipalities should do their part, including Vancouver, Richmond and

Burnaby.” But, a Burnaby shark advocate says shark fin bans are not the only avenue to tackle the issue. Shark Truth founder Claudi Li said her organization tries to encourage conservation and business changes through education and compromise, and while it does support legislation, it does not directly lobby for it. “Legislation is one tool in the tool box,” Li told the Burnaby NOW. She said the impetus should be put on the businesses and not the consumer to inspire change. “When it comes to legislation, we hope cities and all jurisdictions will see their role as one that can empower change in addition to legislating change,” Li said in a media release. “For municipalities specifically, we encourage them to focus on the business aspect for legislation and not sale and possession.” All jurisdictions have the ability to do it, she added. Li also said people should look out for the upcoming vote in the federal government this March, which will put the shark fin issue in the spotlight once again. Two private member bills have been introduced into parliament by MPs Fin Donnelly and Elizabeth May. Donnelly’s bill proposes to prohibit shark fin imports into Canada, while May’s seeks to establish labelling and importing laws to verify the imported species and where it was caught. At last year’s Union of B.C. Municipalities conference, two resolutions were put forward on the issue as well.

THREE-YEAR FISCAL PLAN

Make some new friends

City MLAs weigh in on new provincial budget Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Liberal MLA Richard Lee welcomed Tuesday’s balanced B.C. budget, which promises millions in surpluses over the three-year fiscal plan. “The highlight, of course, is a balanced budget,” said the Burnaby-North MLA. “It’s not easy to do, but I think (Finance Minister Mike de Jong) has managed to put the numbers together, as well as have quite a bit of programs in terms of the families, for health care and legislation, as well as investing for our future.” According to the Liberals, the threeyear plan will balance the budget, work towards eliminating the deficit and bring in $197 million in surpluses for 2013-14, and $460 million in the third year. The Liberals plan on doing this by selling $625 million in surplus properties and assets and introducing targeted tax measures. The measures include raising the general corporate income tax rate from 10 to 11 per cent, and a 2.1 per cent personal income tax increase for people earning more than $150,000. The Liberals are also banking on $1.7 billion from net economic growth and another $1.1 billion in savings by keeping spending under control. With spending at an annual 1.5 per cent

over the next three years, Lee characterized the budget as “prudent.” “It’s not a so-called election budget, because there are no new programs,” he said. “It’s focused on growing the economy, not growing the government.” The budget also sets aside $10.4 billion for capital spending on schools, infrastructure and hospitals. Any money for Burnaby Hospital was noticeably absent for New Democrat MLA Raj Chouhan. “Our hospital is in very bad shape. We need a new hospital, too,” he told the NOW. Chouhan questioned the Liberals’ ability to balance the budget by selling $625 million in property and assets over the next two years. “The Liberals’ primary fix is to sell off our valuable lands and assets in a one-time fire sale. Never mind how short-sighted this is, they are booking revenue now on properties that have not yet been sold,” he said. “Essentially, they’re taking cheques to the bank before they’re even written.” Chouhan also criticized the budget for lacking measures to provide affordable housing, something he says is an important issue in the Burnaby-Edmonds riding. The provincial debt currently stands at $56 billion.

Premier talks budget in Burnaby Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Premier Christy Clark visited a Burnaby Board of Trade luncheon Thursday, to deliver a speech about the 2013 provincial budget to a crowd of roughly 225 people. Clark kicked off her speech by announcing two new Liberal candidates for Burnaby: Jeff Kuah in Burnaby-Edmonds and Shian Gu in Burnaby Deer Lake. Clark said it takes years of hard work to build an economy and cautioned the crowd about ruining it. “Let’s not squander what we’ve created because we are at a crossroads in British Columbia,” she said.

Clark reviewed several budget highlights, starting with a caveat that it was not a budget with “money falling off the back of a truck.” “But there’s a reason for that: You only send us so much money, and we’re not going to spend more than you send us,” she said. Clark’s balanced budget relies on controlled government spending, economic growth bringing in some revenue, and targeted tax measures, including a one per cent increase in the corporate income tax. Clark also thanked public sector workers who have taken a zero per cent wage increase for the past four years. Clark said a one per cent increase would have

cost the government half a billion dollars. She also spoke of natural gas revenues, which she wants to use to form a “prosperity fund.” “It’s going to absolutely transform our economy. It’s going to put tens of thousands of British Columbians to work for decades,” she said. “That Asian middle class is growing. … They are hungry for energy, and they are hungry for cleaner energy than what they’re burning today.” Clark wrapped up her talk, hinting at the upcoming election. “I believe in you,” she said, addressing the audience, “the power of the private sector to build a future for our kids.”

Schools collecting scraps Stefania Seccia staff reporter

Due to the success of the food scraps pilot project, Burnaby’s council and school district are now teaming up to do a fullscale collection program. The pilot project saw nine schools participate in collecting food scraps and food-soiled paper in designated green bins provided by the city during 2011, according to a staff report. “Based on the positive outcome of the pilot project, staff recommend partnering with (Burnaby School District) on the implementation of a full-scale public school food scraps program,” the engineering report states. “Diverting food waste collection in public schools will move the city towards meeting the regional goal of 70 per cent diversion by 2015.” The six elementary schools and three secondary schools were given toters, weekly collection services, education and communication resources, and staff

support by the city. The school district distributed the educational materials to school administrators, coordinated student outreach, monitored the toters for contamination and placed them out at collection time. A visual audit was also conducted bi-weekly before collection to identify any contamination issues and to evaluate the composition of the food waste collected. “Waste composition studies show that compostable organics make up 34 per cent of waste disposed by the institutional sector,” the report states. Over time, the rate of participation and the volume of food scraps increased with average rates varying from school to school, with up to 110 kilograms worth a week. More than 12,500 kg was collected in total. “The visual audits showed that composition of the food scraps varied between elementary schools, and between elementary and secondary schools,” the report states.

“Contamination was found in food scraps toters for both elementary and secondary schools, with a higher level of contamination in the secondary schools.” The pilot project was meant to find gaps in the system and it did – including the need for separate containers for internal food scraps collections, with material being transferred daily into centralized toters for weekly collection. “Collection of food scraps needed to be undertaken near the end of the week as opposed to at the beginning of the week to prevent food scraps from sitting in collection containers over the weekend,” the report states. Also, the participation of student green teams, administration, teachers and custodians were lauded as key successful components to the program by the report. The school district indicated its desire to move forward in implementing a full-scale program in a recent letter to the city.

BURNABY’S UNIQUE MANDARIN LANGUAGE ARTS PROGRAM MARKS THIRD YEAR

Opening a new world for students M

ina Leung was one of several proud parents snapping pictures of their children at Forest Grove Elementary’s special Chinese New Year celebration on Feb. 13. Students packed the gym for special performances to mark the lunar new year at Forest Grove, which is the only elementary school in Burnaby with a Mandarin language arts program. Leung’s sevenyear-old daughter, Jenny, is enrolled in the program, which started with group of kinderON MY BEAT agarten students in Jennifer Moreau 2010. Leung sees the program as an opportunity to give her daughter’s education an edge. “Burnaby is giving us a choice to prepare our kids for success, especially because Mandarin is the largest language in the world,” she says. Leung grew up with Cantonese-speaking parents, but she replied mostly in English. She’s happy her daughter has the chance to learn Mandarin, which she says is more widely used in business circles. She chose to enroll her daughter in Mandarin instead of French. “I wanted more value to her education, and of course, language is a way forward,” she said. “She has a competitive edge having learned the language, especially at this early age when her brain is like a sponge.” Jenny, who is now in Grade 1, can count from one to 100 in Mandarin. She knows the days of the week, greetings, months and various body parts. But, as Leung says, it’s not just about the language; the program, as reflected by the Chinese New Year celebrations, is a way to promote appreciation of Chinese culture. “Burnaby is a more multicultural city,” she says. “Everybody’s a different culture, and this program promotes them to appreciate other cultures.” Michele Britton, another mom with a five-year-old in the program, also attended the special Forest Grove celebration. Her son, Lucas, is learning Mandarin in

The elementary school program was the first of its kind when it started in 2010. Currently, the program is offered from kindergarten to Grade 2 and will be offered in Grade 3 next year. kindergarten. “He’s just loving it,” she says. “He’s super proud he can do this.” Britton speaks German to her two children at home, but now Lucas can teach his older brother to count in Mandarin. Britton also said her family is connecting more with their Chinese neighbours. “It’s just opened up this whole new conversation we just didn’t have before. It’s exciting,” she says. Burnaby high school students can study Mandarin as a second language, but the elementary language arts program was the first of its kind in Burnaby when it started in 2010.

Kindergarten students spend about 30 minutes a day learning the language. As the students grow older and move to higher grades, so does the Mandarin program, which is now offered up to Grade 2. It’s a district-wide program, so parents who live across Burnaby can apply to enroll their children. Most of the children currently enrolled started at the kindergarten level, but students can join at grades 1 or 2, depending on their level of Mandarin. For the 2013/14 school year, the program will also be offered at the Grade 3 level. Currently, there are 18 students enrolled in the Mandarin language arts

kindergarten level, 21 FOR MORE in Grade 1, and 20 in PHOTOS grade 2. SCAN WITH The school district plans on offering the program all the way up to the Grade 7 level, as the kids gets older. Leung plans to keep her daughter enrolled in the course, all the way through Grade 7. “I’m really, really happy with how she’s doing right now with the class – the teachers, the curriculum, I wouldn’t want to change it,” she says. jmoreau@burnabynow.com

Homestay families sought A North Vancouver company is looking for Burnaby families willing to host international students. Muskoka Language International is an educational tourism agency that primarily connects homestay families with foreign teens studying English in Canada. “We’re looking for families with very strong English at home. That seems to be a critical component,” said Brad Fisher, Muskoka’s homestay coordinator for Burnaby. “Every year, we are getting

more and more students interested in Burnaby.” According to Fisher, applicants should be family-oriented people, preferably with kids of their own and interactive home environments. English doesn’t have to be the first spoken language, but homestay families should be fluent. “These international students are being submersed in the English speaking environment,” Fisher said. Host families also have to feed the students and be their “home away from home.” “This is their surrogate

family, if you will,” Fisher said. In return, Muskoka pays the homestay families $800 a month. The agency is hosting two Burnaby workshops on what it takes to be a homestay family: Tuesday, Feb. 26 at Bonsor Recreation Complex, and Wednesday, Feb. 27, at Confederation Community Centre. Both are from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Email bfisher@ mliesl.com or phone 604988-9477 to RSVP for the workshop or for more information on becoming a homestay family. jmoreau@burnabynow.com

Meet the face behind your local White Spot For generations, families and friends have gathered together at a White Spot restaurant to share a meal, a laugh or to celebrate a special occasion. White Spot is as West coast as our mountains and ocean. Today, White Spot continues to attract old and young because of chefs such as Danny Markowicz, Executive Development Chef, who are passionate about what they do. Here Markowicz opens up about White Spot and himself.

Q) Where did you learn to cook? I attended S.A.I.T in Calgary and took the professional cooking program. I did my apprenticeship Left to right: James Kennedy CCC, at the Banff Springs Hotel, and Corporate Training Chef. Danny have been cooking ever since. As Markowicz, Executive Development Chef. a child, my dad would take my Chuck Currie, Executive Chef. brother and me grocery shopping Friday after school, and we would cook dinner. Unknowingly, those were my first “black boxes.” Q) Why did you want to become a chef? At a very young age, I was led into the kitchen of my grandfather’s restaurant in Montreal. If I close my eyes and think about it, I can still remember the aroma. I was hooked. Q) How do you describe your cooking style? My style is globally inspired, using classic French techniques from my training. I often find myself on a certain kick, but whether its comfort food, Italian or Moroccan, or maybe Korean, Spanish or Chinese, it’s always the basics that speak first. Q) What is the menu development process that you take to bring new menu items to life? Once we decide on a platform for a promotion, we “blue sky” potential menu items. From that huge list, it gets paired down to a workable few dozen items. We try to work a year out, so that we’re working on a promotion within the same season it will launch. From that list, we internally taste all menu items, review plating, and build recipes accordingly. Once items are approved for test, we then train our test stores on the new items, and run the items for a few weeks. We gather feedback, and make decisions on how to move forward. Eight months later, those items could be at a White Spot near you… Q) What is your favourite restaurant to dine at? That’s a really tough question… The list is long….. But if I had to choose … In Vancouver, Kintaro is still one of my favorites. All I ever have is the BBQ Pork Ramen, but it’s always incredibly satisfying, and there’s something special about huge pots of simmering broth steaming up the windows. Q) What food/dish could you never live without? Cheese. Never! Don’t make me do it!!!

ALL ABOUT KIDS

Family-friendly shows at Brentwood Town Centre Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

It’s a double bill that might not appeal to the over-six set, but toddlers and young children are sure to be delighted by the shows taking place at Brentwood Town Centre next month. The two shows – Franklin the Turtle’s Musical Playdate and Richard Scarry’s Busytown – featuring Huckle Cat and Lowly Worm – take place on March 2 and 3. The first Franklin show is at 11 a.m. on March 2, and the Busytown show is at 1 p.m. On March 3, the Franklin show is at noon and the Busytown show is at 2 p.m. Each of the shows is 30 minutes. The town centre has also developed a creative story project in association with the shows, according to a press release from Shape Properties, Brentwood’s management company. For the project, children can write a short story or draw a picture that describes

an adventure with their favourite Franklin or Busytown characters. The submissions will be featured on a story wall in the town centre for the month of March. Parents whose children wish to participate must fill out a registration form in advance at the shopping centre’s customer service centre. The first 300 children to register will receive a VIP pass to meet Franklin and his friends or the Busytown characters after the musical playdate show. Children who participate in the creative story project will receive a complimentary poster, a coupon for free ice cream at Dairy Queen and an entry form for a variety of prizes, including a $30,000 registered educational savings plan from Canadian Scholarship Trust, according to the release. The deadline for submissions is March 1. For more information on these events and more, go to www.brentwoodtown centre.com.

2013 Hyundai Genesis flaunts fresh new look David Chao

NOW contributor

Why do we like rearwheel-drive cars? Driving enthusiasts might say it’s because of their inherent balance. The front wheels of front-drive cars are taxed with added responsibility to both accelerate and steer the vehicle, while all-wheel-drive can add weight and mechanical complexity. On a philosophical level, there’s just something more pure and true to form in a rear-drive vehicle. But unfortunately, numerous factors favour the more common frontwheel-drive cars, so it’s the rear-wheel-drive cars that are rarer than ever. Luckily for us, several manufacturers have recently prevailed against the odds to provide us with some genuine rear-drive sports cars, with starting prices around the $25,000 mark. The Hyundai Genesis Coupe is one of those cars. The updated 2013 model flaunts a fresh new look, a ton more power and still has an attractive price tag. While the Genesis Coupe has done plenty to increase the performance image of the Hyundai brand, it’s positioned in the middle of the sports coupe segment. It doesn’t offer the retro styling and tradition of cars like the Camaro or Mustang, nor does it possess the lightweight fun factor from new arrivals such as the Scion FR-S or Subaru BRZ. So what does the Hyundai Genesis Coupe offer that other cars don’t? In one word, value.

Design

Sometimes being caught in the middle of two other

vehicles is a good thing. You can poach sales from both sides without being a direct competitor with either one. And so it is for the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe. With a turbo four which draws on the characteristics of the Japanese brands, and a strong-running V6 that edges itself towards Detroit brands, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is adequately equipped to do battle with both. The latest Genesis Coupe also gets a newlook – one that’s more aggressive and muscular – especially up front with the new fascia, featuring larger air intakes and a more menacing hood. Down the sides, the Z-shaped body lines remain but are set off by new wheels with a more sculpted look, available in 18 or 19 inches. At the back, the LED’s highlight a new tail lamp design, while down low, asymmetric exhaust tips add some flash to the black diffuser. Interior updates are minor but include new materials throughout that are a bit more inviting. The gauges are upgraded with electroluminescent lighting and a new information centre. All models have now added the necessary telescoping to the steering wheel. The R-Spec model features seats with red leather bolstering and cloth inserts. Red trim finds its way onto the door panels as well. Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics is available on some models.

for a total of 348-hp, and 29 more foot-pounds of torque, to 295 ft-lbs. The two-litre four cylinder receives a new twin-scroll turbocharger and a larger,

more thermally efficient intercooler. The result of this colder, and denser air is a 30-per-cent increase in horsepower and a 23-percent increase in torque for

Genesis: Good value continued from page 24

240km/h electronically-limited top speed. The standard six-speed transmission was tweaked to provide more feel and indeed it is very precise. A new eight-speed automatic is available to those who prefer just to just enjoy the car without worrying about shifting. The brakes certainly live up to the sporty style of the Genesis Coupe, as it boasts a short stopping distance. Through the corners, it feels well balanced with a front end that stays planted at all times. There are new dampers and the steering has been recalibrated too. Response is about the same as with the previous generation, but you do notice some additional feedback and a little more connectivity overall. There’s enough torque to push the rear out a bit with timely throttle inputs, and as before, R-Spec models get front strut camber adjustment bolts.

Thumbs up

With the option of a turbocharged four or a naturallyaspirated V6, customers can choose the powertrain that best suits their personality. The refreshed exterior and interior is a welcome update.

Thumbs down

The Genesis Coupe is going against some extremely competitive sports cars from other brands, so being valueoriented isn’t necessarily the best strategy because the final result is a bit of compromise.

The bottom line

The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a lot of car for the money and brings a good level of sophistication to this class.

Helping students be the best they can be

CREATING BRIGHTER FUTURES SINCE 1903

Need to catch up? Get ahead? Improve a grade? Get more confidence? Tutor Doctor provides tutoring at your home. Each course is tailored for the individual student to achieve their academic goals. You choose the schedule. Every time we talk to a family with a need for tutoring, we want to understand the challenges, needs and objectives of the individual student and the family. Then we can match the student to the best tutor based on location, schedule, subject, grade level and personal style. Making a good match is crucial to success. Our tutors are thoroughly vetted and checked, so you know you will be getting the help of a qualified, competent tutor, who understand your student’s needs and who can be trusted in your home with your child. Tutors range from post graduate students and working professionals to experienced teachers in a wide variety of disciplines. Tutor Doctor is a Canadian success story, providing its service across North

America and beyond. In Burnaby, we are a local company that focuses on the needs of students and families in our community. We’ve been working in the area since September 2010, and in that time, we’ve helped many students to improve their grades, increase their confidences and achieve their objectives.

have covered include Math, English (Literature, Language Arts and ESL), Science, French, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Social Studies, Spanish and Mandarin. We are not limited – we’ve also helped students with Art, History, Earth Science, First Nations Studies, Economics, Accounting and other business subjects.

“We are very impressed with our son’s tutor. He is extremely proactive and works well with our son. They seem to have a nice connection and my son is starting to feel more successful in his writing activities.”

We believe there are very many students who are much more capable academically than their grades at school suggest. Many have yet to learn how to learn – they struggle with organization, planning, test preparation, note taking, research, essay writing – a whole array of skills that we broadly call Study Skills. Tutor Doctor helps students to improve their study skills which in turn raises their confidence and motivation.

We cater to all grades and subjects. We’ve had students as young as 4 and over 70 – still young at heart. Most are Elementary and High School students. The subjects we

That opportunity will come later when March madness takes centre court in the conference playdowns. But before that, Raincock-Ekunwe and fellow fourth-year teammates Carla Wyman and Kristina Collins will be honoured at Seniors’ Night at the West Gym on Saturday night. While some outgoing seniors find playing their last home game a sad affair, Raincock-Ekunwe said she plans to focus on the conference game ahead of her. “We’ve never beaten Northwest Nazarene in three seasons. It’s a good opportunity,” she said. The game will also be a further opportunity for

Double trouble: Simon Fraser University’s Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe leads the nation in field goal shooting and is fifth all-time with 55 career double-doubles. Raincock-Ekunwe to leave an even larger legacy as one of the all-time great players to play on Burnaby Mountain. Last week, RaincockEkunwe moved into elite company in NCAA Div. II, registering her 55th double-double in the

Great Northwest conference. Although unofficial because of the Clan’s then-provisional status, Raincock-Ekunwe’s career numbers are currently fifth-best all-time. She set a new conference record for doubledoubles in her first year

in the NCAA and broke her own mark the following year with 24 doubles, earning a second consecutive first team all-star nod. This season, she broke the conference record with her 49th double, scoring 11 Double Page 34

Douglas wins eighth straight title Tom Berridge

sports editor

The Douglas College Royals won an unprecedented eighth consecutive provincial badminton title this past weekend. The Royals started the weekend with a perfect 4-0 record in the team competition to beat out runnersup Langara College and Kwantlen Polytechnic for its eighth straight PacWest title. Douglas also shone in the individual competition, qualifying in three separate events for the upcoming Canadian Colleges’ association

national championships to be held in Barrie, Ont. later this month. Defending four-time national singles champion RuiLin Huang of Burnaby led the Royals, winning her fifth straight women’s singles title with a win over Melissa Liew of Vancouver Island University in the championship final. Huang will look to win a record fifth straight national title. Charmagne Yeung and Amy Leung defeated Alisa Young and Even Tong of Kwantlen to win the women’s doubles event for the Douglas team. Yeung also won a fifth provincial

title and is on target for a fifth consecutive national title as well. Two-time men’s champion Luo Wei of Burnaby teamed up with freshman sensation Nathan Choi to win the men’s doubles. The Douglas pair knocked off Kwantlen’s Willis Kwee and Andy Wong for the men’s title. Wei will be going for his third straight national title in Barrie. “A very professional performance by the team,” said Douglas College head coach Al Mawani. “It’s going to be a bittersweet nationals with RuiLin, Charmagne and Amy finishing out their collegiate careers.”

Simon Fraser University’s goal of a first-place finish in the Great Northwest conference women’s basketball season took a step backward following a 70-60 upset loss to Seattle Pacific on Valentine’s Day. Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe scored 21 points and added a game-high 11 rebounds to lead the Clan. Three other players – Erin Chambers, Chelsea Reist and Kristina Collins – had double-digit numbers, all scoring 10 points apiece. SFU shot just 17.4 per cent from beyond the arc, while Seattle Pac made good on more than 46 per cent of its three-point attempts. The Clan made up some ground with a 61-55 win over fourth-place Montana State Billings on Saturday. Raincock-Ekunwe registered her 55th career double-double, potting 21 points and as many boards to pace the Clan. Chambers also netted 21 points for SFU. SFU outscored Billings 19-9 off turnovers. SFU used a 17-5 run early in the second half to build an insurmountable lead.

With the win, SFU improved its conference record to 11-3. The Clan still has a mathematical chance at catching first-place Western Washington, but would need a miracle finish in its remaining three games and a complete collapse by the Bellingham school to have a shot at first place. Western Washington’s only conference loss this season has been to SFU. The Clan is home to Central Washington on Thursday night before hosting Northwest Nazarene on Sunday. Both games are 7 p.m. starts. Saturday is Senior’s Night at SFU as RaincockEkunwe, Carla Wyman and Collins play their final home game this season. The important conference matchup is also the Clan’s annual Pink Zone game in support of the B.C. Cancer Foundation’s research on breast cancer. Everyone attending the game is encouraged to wear pink and for every person to pass through the doors, a donor will contribute one dollar to the cause. In addition, a portion of the ticket price will also be donated to the foundation.

Runners win four indoor track titles

Helen Crofts helped Simon Fraser University win three of its four track titles at the Great Northwest conference indoor championships in Nampa, Idaho this weekend. Crofts defended her women’s 800-metre title, repeating as the NCAA Division II conference champion in a winning time of 2:12.29. Crofts also shared in the Clan’s wins in the 4x400m and distance relays. The No. 1-seeded distance team of Crofts, Lindsey Butterworth, Michaela Kane and Chantal Desch finished nine seconds ahead of runner-up Alaska Anchorage in a winning time of 11:47.86. Crofts, Sarah Sawatsky, Kane and Desch also won the 1,600m relay in a new meet record time of 3:48.36. Sawatsky and Kane placed second and fourth, respectively, behind Crofts in the individual 800m final, narrowly missing a podium sweep in the event. Desch had an impressive individual debut at the conference championships, placing second in the 400m and fifth in the 200m in career-fastest times. Butterworth was SFU’s first individual champion of the meet, defending last year’s mile title and bettering that time by almost nine seconds with a 4:58.09 clocking. Kirsten Allen and Andrea Abrams both placed third in their respective 3,000m and 60m hurdles events.

MAJOR MIDGET HOCKEY

Giants lock up first place The Northwest Giants clinched their sixth consecutive B.C. major midget hockey regular season title following one-sided wins over the Kootenay Ice at home. The Giants opened with a 12-0 victory at the Burnaby Winter Club on Saturday and followed it up with a 13-2 win on Sunday. Jarid Lukosevicius moved up to fourth overal in major midget scoring, garnering a total of 10 points over the Ice, including a six-point effort in the opener. Lukosevicius potted a hat trick in the return match. Jansen Harkins and Colton Kerfoot matched each other’s scoring in Saturday’s win, tallying three goals and adding two assists apiece. Harkins chipped in with another four points on Sunday, while teammates Zach Landon and Jackson Cressy both had a pair of

goals and one assist in the rematch. The wins give the Giants an insurmountable lead over the second-place Cariboo Cougars. The Giants improved their overall record to 32-23. They play their final regular-season series against the slumping Okanagan Rockets this weekend in Kelowna.

First this season

Burnaby’s Mark Olver scored his first goal of the NHL season with the Colorado Avalanche. Olver potted his first of the year in a 3-2 overtime loss to Phoenix on Feb. 11. The fourth-year pro has been bouncing between the Avs and the American Hockey League Lake Erie Monsters in recent seasons. Olver played 18 games for Colorado in the 2010-11 season and 24 games last year. He has a career seven goals and 11 assists, and is a minus-three in the bigs.

points and grabbing 15 rebounds against Alaska Anchorage on Jan. 5. Earlier in the season, she also set the conference singlegame rebound record with 24 boards. Her 941 career rebounds to date is fourth best in the conference all-time. Raincock-Ekunwe also has top-10 all-time numbers in total field goals, blocked shots and offensive rebounds. “Rebounding has been my game,” said RaincockEkunwe. “I just try to go to the boards every game and get as many as I can.” The two-time Basketball B.C. outstanding university player of the year says she never expected to reach the heights she has. “In my first year, I didn’t think I would be that good. I got beaten up in practice pretty good,” she said. But SFU head coach Bruce Langford says, “she didn’t have a choice.” With three outgoing seniors graduating following the Canadian collegiate title and Raincock-Ekunwe fourth on the depth chart, the former B.C. high school AA MVP from Kalamalka High School was thrust into a starting spot. “I thought she was going to be that kind of athlete, for sure. But things came too easy (for her) as a high school player. She struggled in her first year. … She’s improved her intensity and focus,” said Langford. Raincock-Ekunwe currently leads the nation in field goal shooting and is second in total rebounds. The Clan is also third overall in the NCAA in field-goal shooting percentage as a team. But with four conference games still left on the schedule before playoffs, Saturday’s matchup with third-place Northwest Nazarene is a crucial test of the Clan’s mettle, said Langford. Earning the program’s first-ever berth into a NCAA national tournament remains the team’s ultimate goal. “It would be deserving for the kids,” said Langford, “and a shame if we didn’t reach our potential.” For Raincock-Ekunwe, the difference might just come down to her new-found intensity. “I’ll remember most going down to the States and showing the Americans that Canadian girls can play. It’s always a good feeling when we beat the Americans,” she said.

Atoms prove prowess at Presidents tourney Tom Berridge sports editor

The Burnaby Winter Club won the EHF Presidents Day hockey tournament in Marlborough, Massachusetts on Monday. The atom A1 Bruins won the squirt major division following a 2-1 victory over the home-state South Shore Kings select team in the championship final. John Evans and Christian Fitzgerald both scored goals to give the winter club a 2-0 lead after two periods of play. Eric Clark had his shutout spoiled late in the third period. “Our defensive play was fantastic. We’ve worked a ton on it,” said

Burnaby Winter Club head coach Randy Downes. The winter club was forced to come back from 2-0 deficits on two separate occasions at the tournament. Burnaby came back to beat the Westchester Express 3-2 in the event opener and then rallied in the third period for a 3-2 triple-overtime win over MidFairfield in the playoff round. In the championship round game, Kalen Szeto tied the score with just 38 seconds left in the game. Justin Sourdiff counted the OT winner over the No. 3-ranked club in the U.S to help the atom Bruins advance to the tournament final. Earlier in the competition, BWC

shut out their South Shore hosts 4-0 in what Downes described as “easily the team’s best game of the year.” “They could have could have wilted at any time in that tournament, but they refused to,” Downes said. “That’s why we went there. We knew that all the teams were going to be good.” Prior to the tournament, the atom A1 team wrapped up the Pacific Coast amateur regular season with a perfect 20-0-0 record, including all 20 sportsmanship points. In league play, the atom Bruins outscored their combined opposition 186-22, with only two teams – Seafair and the North Shore Winter Club – scoring more than one goal against them in a single game.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Chase money, buy/ sell Sunday – garage sales intrigue. (Don’t buy anything big and important.) Short trips, details, communications and paperwork fill Monday/Tuesday (avoid government forms). Focus on home, kids, real estate, security and nutrition midweek. Friday/ Saturday hold romantic/creative success– which fits superbly into February/March’s broad cycle of love, cultural rituals, far travel, wisdom and higher learning. You could fall in love! But remember: start nothing, project nor relationship, before March 17. The best romance is ongoing, or is embodied in an old flame. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: You’ve entered the realm of mystery, lust, health diagnosis and hidden power plays. Something might return from the past in this arena – perhaps a former sexy playmate, perhaps a chance to live a lifestyle you once hungered for, perhaps a former investment opportunity. DO research, ask questions, follow the mystery, and deal with ongoing situations/people or those returning from the past. DON’T start a new relationship, project, investment or venture. All this, to March 17. You’re the subtle star Sunday. Chase money Monday/ Tuesday. Paperwork, errands midweek. Home, family Friday on. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: DON’T start new projects or relationships before March 17. Stick with the ongoing, and situations that return from the past – including a possible return of a former partner or someone you wished was. However, this few-week interval seems designed more to make you ponder the big picture of relationships, than to re-instate an old one permanently. It’s as if you’re on a bridge to a very different land of love, and are stalled: not to turn you back, but to make you think. Lie low Sunday. Tackle everything with confidence Monday/Tuesday. Money, midweek. Casual friends late week.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Rest, lie low, deal with head office, government agencies, institutions, charitable and spiritual organizations. Start no new projects nor relationships before March 17. Instead, reprise (or fix) the old, or stick with the ongoing. Sunday’s filled with beauty and pleasant notions, but your advances might be playfully steered aside. Tackle overdue work Monday/Tuesday. Relationships prove important midweek – a great conversation (or news article) and a spiritual awakening or dreamy state occur. Seek changes, health diagnosis, realistic investments and/or intimacy Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your popularity grows. Optimism, wish fulfillment, light romance and entertainment increase this week and the next few. Old friends return, old wishes are granted, and former flirty, light romantic contacts reappear. New friends and new projects, if started now to March 16, will tend to twirl brightly for awhile, then fizzle. Sunday’s for home, garden, rest, and rejuvenation. Romance calls Monday/Tuesday – your creative, speculative and expressive skills rise up. Tackle familiar chores midweek. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em Friday/ Saturday – great things come from partnering! Gemini May 21-June 20: Start no new projects, ventures or relationships before March 17. Until then, protect ongoing projects, especially in career and dealings with authorities. They, and bosses, and parents, are gripped by indecision until then. Be ambitious (not ambiguous). Shore up your position, secure recent advances, Monday/Tuesday – or rest and nurture family, for they are the support for your ambitions. Earlier, Sunday’s for short trips, friends and curiosity. Romance and creativity lure you Wednesday/Thursday: but they conflict with your need to grow. You get a lot of work done Friday/Saturday.

Feb. 24 - Mar. 2, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Much work faces you, but tackle only routine, ongoing or formerly neglected chores before March 17. DON’T start big new projects, employ new staff, nor buy machinery, tools, computers – lemons abound. A former job might be offered. If you’re seeking employment, canvas former bosses. Sunday’s bright, hopeful, happy. Retreat and rest Monday/Tuesday -- government-related tasks go well. (Though they, too, face delay.) Your energy and pizzazz return strongly midweek, but luck (in love, learning, law and travel) mixes with domestic problems. Your money luck soars Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: This week goes from better to best! (But don’t be tempted to start a new project or relationship before March 17.) Sunday’s for ambition and community reputation: elevate yours by joining, helping. Optimism, popularity, wish fulfillment and general delight fill Monday/Tuesday: an old flame or flirty friend could reappear . You’re on a month-long winning streak of romance, creativity, sports or pleasure. You can renew contacts on many levels, including business. Retreat midweek to rest and contemplate. Your energy and charisma soar Friday/Saturday – you’ll succeed, attract love. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Don’t start new projects or relationships before March 17, Sage, especially in family, domestic, nutrition, real estate, retirement or security zones. (E.g., you could find new renovations have left no room for the basement stairs.) Stick to ongoing projects, or situations from the past. Clear away neglected home-related chores. Sunday’s mellow, thoughtful, cultural. Show your ambition Monday/Tuesday (but start nothing new!). Happiness, optimism and friends fill midweek. Success assured with institutions, government, meditation, rest, health and research Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new before March 17, Cap, especially in mail, computer, telephony, office systems, stationery, or travel. Don’t buy a car or any equipment. You might rediscover a lost book, letter, photo – or an entire “lost acquaintance.” (Don’t invest too heavily in the last.) Sunday’s secrets will open, if you diplomatically push. A mellow, understanding mood flows over you Monday/Tuesday – love (or the hope of love) is possible! Be ambitious midweek, display your skills: luck accompanies you. Social delights, popularity, light romance succeed splendidly Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Money’s just an abstract way to mete out power, security, position, food, shelter, clothing, medical, dental...and most love is entwined with these. So chase money now to March 19, Aquarius. You won’t be neglecting love, but supporting it. But don’t start a new project or venture. Stick with ongoing dollar situations, or reprise those from the past. (E.g., sell an old article, or seek a job where you worked before.) Sunday’s made exciting by a sensual person. Sex, secrets and finances, Monday/Tuesday. Understanding, mellow love midweek. Ambition, career Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, luck and charisma remain high, Pisces. Remember, start nothing before March 17. Until then, you’ll remain indecisive about goals, partnerships, opportunities, relocation, and love. Stick with ongoing projects, or reprise old ones – avoid the new. Everything’s smooth this week. Chores call Sunday. Relationships, opportunities and goals arise Monday/Tuesday – though excitement occurs, remember: no new links or projects. Life’s mysteries emerge midweek, but hold few rewards if you solve them. Friday/Saturday bring gentle love, intellectual venues and superb luck. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
