Fraser River could reach flood levels

City high in drug overdoses But report’s author says stats are on par with other cities

If snowpack melts quickly river could reach 2007 levels

A Fraser Health Authority report on injection drug use and harm reduction is showing relatively high rates of hepatitis C, illicit drug overdoses and deaths for New Westminster, although the report’s author says the Royal City is on par with surrounding municipalities. The Record obtained a copy of the attachment that was to be included as part of a proposed harm reduction service plan for Abbotsford, which has an antiharm-reducation bylaw. David Portesi, a public health director with the authority, authored the report, which has been shared with the City of Abbotsford and an HIV/AIDS/ Hep C regional advisory committee but not yet released to the public. According to the attachment, New Westminster had the highest rate of people admitted to hospital because of illicit drug overdoses compared to Abbotsford, Surrey and Burnaby. Between 2006/07 and 2010/11, New Westminster’s rate was 23.6 per 100,000 population, whereas Abbotsford’s was 21.9, Surrey’s was 17.3 and Burnaby’s was 11.4. The rates are based on where the drugs users live, not what hospital they were admitted to. However, the numbers reflect per capita rates, as Portesi pointed out, and New Westminster’s smaller population – just 67,000 ◗Report Page 5

Low-lying levels of New Westminster may need to take action to mitigate the effects of high water on the Fraser River. Coun. Chuck Puchmayr, who chairs the city’s emergency advisory committee, said the city recently received an update about the April 1 snow pack. “It’s showing, in a nutshell, we are probably in a situation similar to the levels experienced in 2007,” he said. “We held our breath then and hoped for a slow thaw and delayed runoff, which is exactly what happened.” The April 1 snow survey and water supply bulletin showed record snow packs in the upper Fraser (152 per cent of normal) and the Nechako (165 per cent of normal). The middle Fraser and the lower Fraser were also above normal snow pack levels. “We are in pretty good shape,” Puchmayr said about the city’s preparations for high water. “In 2007 we put some temporary stack blocks in a couple of areas. Right now we are pretty well covered at levels for the 500-year flood. There are a couple of areas below that.” According to Puchmayr, stacking blocks and sandbags would once again be used in these areas if there were a risk of flooding in New Westminster. While there’s no need for panic, he said people along the river should be aware that the snow pack is at record levels. “We are in a really good position,” he said. “We did some mitigation in 2007. We are not in any kind of panic.” Weather will play a big role in determining how high the spring freshet will be this year. “Don’t pray for sunbathing weather right now,” he said. “Right now we are in a La

WHAT STAR TED AS A DAY TO PICK UP GARBAGE HAS TURNED INTO AN EAR TH DAY LESSON

Growing a sustainable event in the ’Boro

C

lose to two decades ago, Queensweep was pretty much just a day to pull tires out of Queensborough ditches and fill garbage bags with the usual mounds of discarded coffee cups and lunch bags. But this weekend the event is surely a reflection of the times, as it aims to set a new standard for sustainability for community events in New Westminster. The 19th annual Queensweep is being held on Earth Day – Sunday, April 22. The event, which is being held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the THERESA MCMANUS Queensborough Middle School, will provide environmental education and entertainment for the whole family. The day begins with a nature walk along South Dyke Road, which takes place from 8 to 10 a.m. A professional naturalist from Nature Vancouver will guide community members on the walk in Queensborough and point out what Mother Nature has to offer. “They will take participants to look for birds, native plants, trees,” said event coordinator Ivonne Penit. “That is how we are starting our event.” A variety of activities will take place at the Queensweep, including a community cleanup, a garage sale, booths and venders and a seed exchange. While the community cleanup has been a focus in past years, this year’s event is focusing on education and food sustainability. “We are going to have a seed exchange,” Penit said. “I have tons of seed packages. We are giving them away to gardeners. Also, the main purpose is to encourage gardeners-to-be – we want them to get started.” A number of organizations will be setting up educational and environmental displays, including New Westminster Environmental Partners, Harvest Power (creates soil, mulch and organic fertilizer products from organic materials), Call2Recycle (a free rechargeable battery and cell phone collection program), Barefoot Books, Bernardin (home canning products) and more. “We wanted to focus on the community education,” Penit said. “We really wanted to focus on food sustainability.” Penit said Queensweep tackles the issue of food sustainability on several fronts, including the seed exchange and sale, information about growing and preserving foods and recycling food scraps, and the provision of on-site food by Extreme Pita. “For 18 years we have been providing hot dogs. This year we have changed that. We have invited Extreme Pita,” she said. “The reason we have chosen them was they have a healthy living menu. They

Growing up green: Kids attending Queensweep will get a chance to make some eco-friendly arts and crafts out of recycled objects. Event coordinator Ivonne Penit shows off some of the creations they’ll be able to make at the Earth Day event April 22. have a lot of vegetarian choices, a lot of vegetables. We would really like to set an example for city events, especially family events, for children to learn and get to know healthy choices for food.” A big thing being emphasized at this year’s event is educational displays that are related to some aspect of the environment or food sustainability, including growing, cooking and preserving food, and recycling food waste. “We want people to realize how good it is to recycle their food scraps,” Penit said. “The city is providing recycling stations for everything.” In addition to the seed exchange, Fraserside Community Services Society will have a display of its vegetable container program, which aims to allow residents of apartments or townhouses to have access to homegrown, fresh vegetables. “New Westminster has a very high population of people who live in multi-family apartments,” Penit said. “The Biggest Little Garden in Town from Fraserside supplies people who live in apartments, who have no access to soil in their residences, how to grow veggies and food in containers.” Queensweep, which is organized by the Queensborough Special Programs Committee, features a musical performance by Pamela Sunshine at 11 a.m.

She’ll perform songs from her CD, Growing Up Green. “It’s a perfect fit,” Penit said. “I have been listening to this CD. All of the songs talk about reducing and recycling, turning off the water, riding your bike. It is very engaging. She brings instruments for the children to play.” Kids will also be able to makes some eco-friendly arts and crafts at Queensweep. “It’s a whole garden theme with flowers, lady bugs, caterpillars, plants – made with beautiful junk,” Penit said. “The kids will be making that with the supplies.” Community members attending the free event will be able to get raffle tickets in a variety of ways, including dressing in Earth Day colours (green and brown), taking part in guessing contest in which they will have to identify herbs, flowers and vegetable plants, making a craft with recyclables, purchasing something from the garage sale tables, eating something healthy, learning something new at the environmental and educational displays and bringing a recyclable item to the event. Small eco-friendly prizes are up for grabs. “People can get raffle tickets by bringing a small recyclable – it could be an empty aluminum can or a plastic bottle or batteries,” Penit said. “A lot of people don’t know it is very harmful when they

are thrown in the landfill. If they bring a battery, that counts as a raffle ticket.” Penit hopes the event will set the standard for other events held in New Westminster in its bid to achieve zero waste. The city will be providing recycling facilities on site for recyclables and food waste. “It doesn’t really take much,” she said. “It doesn’t have to be an environmental event. If you educate people how to separate their waste efficiently, they end up with zero waste.” Queensweep has engaged local school children to participate in the event. “A whole class from the elementary school took this as a project. The class is doing artwork with recyclables. We are displaying that at the event,” Penit said. “The middle school, they have an environment club. They are having a display. They produced compost.” The city is also using the event to unveil a youth art initiative that’s been underway in Queensborough. The unveiling takes place at 11 a.m. “The kids for this Youth Art initiative have been working on panels. They are pairing with this event for the unveiling,” Penit said. “This is a legacy for Queensborough.” www.twitter.com/TheresaMcManus

Record takes home bronze at annual newspaper awards The Royal City Record was a winner at the B.C. and Yukon Community Newspaper Association awards gala on Saturday night. The Record received bronze for overall excellence in its circulation category. The newspaper excellence awards look at a variety of categories to rate a publication, including front page, community news, editorials, sports, photography, arts and entertainment, features, production quality, advertising content and design, and classified advertising. The judges said, “The Record embodies the journalistic commitment to dig deeper so that its readers

get all sides of the story. Well-rounded and balanced, The Record gives equal treatment to local news, features, arts and entertainment and sports. A great package.” As well, reporter Christina Myers received a silver in the category of business writing, for a feature about a New Westminster-based company, Blue Bear Aware, that makes products for children with allergies. Myers has been with the Burnaby NOW and the Royal City Record since 2003. The annual Ma Murray awards recognize the efforts of community newspapers from around B.C. and the Yukon.

– can make the rate more “volatile.” “I think you have to take some caution when interpreting rates for an area like New West. It can be very volatile,” Portesi said. “For example, an increase in the sheer number of events from say 10 to 20 (an increase of 10) will double the rate in New West, whereas going up from 50 to 60 (also an increase of 10) in a larger metropolitan area won’t have as much of an effect even though you’ve seen the same number of people.” For example, the actual numbers of people admitted to hospital for overdoses shows Surrey at the highest with 79, Abbotsford second with 29, Burnaby third with 25 and New Westminster last at 15. “My perspective, looking at New West, and the surrounding area – Burnaby, looking at Surrey and Abbotsford – my professional opinion is it’s on par and similar with other Metropolitan areas in Fraser Health. I wouldn’t particularly pick out New West based on this data as having a better or worse situation related to injection drug use.” That said, New Westminster was second only to Vancouver (including the Downtown Eastside) for rates of overdose deaths related to illicit drugs. For 2005 to 2009, Vancouver’s average rate (per 100,000 people) was 11.79, New Westminster’s was 11.07, Abbotsford’s was at 8.08, Surrey was 9.01, while Burnaby was last at 4.89. Again, Portesi pointed out, the rates are influenced by the population size of each municipality. “When you have a smaller population size, those rates can be more volatile. If you look at it year by year, it’s actually trending down for New West,” he said. For hepatitis C rates, New Westminster was the highest at 67 for 100,000 people (which reflects 45 actual people), while Abbotsford, Surrey and Burnaby were lower. By comparison, B.C.’s 2009 hepatitis C rate was 54.9, and Canada’s was 33.7 per 100,000 people. Hepatitis C is a viral disease often spread by sharing needles. It’s more easily transmitted than HIV, so the prevalence is generally higher, the attachment states. HIV rates have been steadily declining in all of B.C., the Fraser Health region included, according to the attachment. When it comes to illicit drug use, Fraser Health spokesperson Roy Thorpe-Dorward stated that rates of illness and death were decreasing in New Westminster. “Overall, we are seeing a decreasing trend in rates for New West. Higher rates in 2005/06 have driven up the average rates, and the five-year averages reported in the fact sheet do not reflect the current rates for New West,” he said. For example, the 2009 mortality rate for New West was 4.14, lower than 11.07, which is a five-year-average. According to the Centre for Addictions Research of B.C., in 2009, illicit drugs accounted for 4,049 hospitalizations, while alcohol was responsible for 20,534 and tobacco caused 27,620.

from the case. When the Conservative government announced in July 2010 that it would be buying 65 of Lockheed Martin’s fanciest warplanes, critics screamed that making such a huge purchase without inviting any competing bids was an act of lunacy. Those critics, it turns out, were right. Government procurement policies exist to guard against precisely this type of needless waste. The Conservatives knew that, yet

they chose to skirt due process for the sake of expedience. Had they followed their own rules, the gross underestimates and hidden risks of the F-35 contract would have come to light long before the auditor general started sniffing around the program. Defence department bureaucrats may well have deceived MPs to get a new toy, but it was our government’s wilful myopia that allowed them to get away with it.

Is ‘better’ always the best choice? IN MY OPINION

T

MATTHEW CLAXTON

here’s an urban legend, spread by the internet and an old The West Wing episode, with a moral about simplicity versus complexity. Supposedly, in the 1960s NASA realized that they didn’t have a pen that could write in zero gravity. So millions were spent to design a space pen for the Apollo astronauts. The Soviets used pencils. Sadly, the real story is almost exactly the reverse. Early Mercury astronauts did use pencils in orbit, as did the Russian cosmonauts. But bits of graphite broke off and floated around the confines of a cabin, and the graphite and pencils could burn – a serious concern after the deaths of three men in the Apollo 1 fire. So an independently developed pen was purchased, for $2.39 per pen. Pricey, by 1960s standards, but not that bad. And the Soviets? They signed a contract with the same American company a year later and got the same bulk discount that NASA did. The real story is far more fascinating, because it forces us to

think about the complexities of a seemingly simple issue. I would not have imagined that a pencil could be a hazard on a space capsule, but if a speck of graphite shorted out a critical system, it could be lethal. So score one for complexity and technological superiority. Even the stories where cheap and simple really did beat high tech and expensive turn out to be complicated. To return to the Russians (masters of the brutally simple mechanism), they created a relatively brutish machine that confounded their enemies: the T-34 tank. The T-34 was created just before Nazi Germany foolishly decided to invade Russia. Hitler, who loved high-powered tanks, supported projects like the Tiger and Panther, powerful tanks that could blow apart just about anything else on the battlefield. If they weren’t broken down, that is. With their water-cooled engines and thousands of moving parts, the Tigers had a tendency to spend a lot of time under repair. The T-34s, on the other hand, were rugged and simple, designed so that a halfliterate collective farm worker could figure out how to drive and repair one. Even more importantly, they were cheap to build. The Soviets followed the same credo as modern spam emailers: send a few thousand, some of them will get through.

Who’s winning this game?

Dear Editor:

The on-ice officials refereeing the letters arena at this paper need to do a better job policing headshots and attempts to injure. Responding to leftwinger Tony Eberts’ recent “cheap shot,” i.e. calling the government “cheap,” local Centre Ice forward Hector Bremner took his number and responded with a clean, hard, fact-filled, reason-fuelled body check, knocking Eberts’ flimsy case to the ice. Eberts reacted with an ugly stick-swinging rampage, flailing wildly at the more sportsmanlike Bremner, who wisely skated away from the taunting. When enforcers like Eberts are allowed in the game, you have to question the officiating and the coaching. Politics is a contact sport, and no one wants to take hitting out of the game. It’s part of what makes the political debate so popular. What ◗Choices Page 7 fans don’t want is coaches sending head-hunting

goons into the fray and officials turning a blind eye. It’s bad for the game. The real loser when the head-shots start flying is the facts. The truth about the performance of any government is in the numbers. It’s about putting points on the board, shots on goal, save percentage, job creation, financial management, economic growth, debt-ratios. As brilliantly articulated in the baseball film Moneyball, the intensely boring performance metrics, although clearly the key to success, are usually outshined by the less significant popularity contests. In B.C., everyone’s key focus now is rightly the economy, and the economy is all about the numbers. If there’s hard hitting to be done, let’s light up the calculators, not pump up the sucker punches. The truth is, the team on the ice right now is putting up some impressive numbers. That’s bound to be popular, eventually. David H. Brett, New Westminster

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR What do the numbers say?

Dear Editor:

Tony Eberts has written about “the government supposedly being in ‘hock,’” Hector Bremner sneeringly notes, asserting that this claim is false (No, B.C. is not broke, Letters to the editor, The Record, April 6). But later in the same letter, Bremner notes that British Columbia’s debt-toincome ratio is 18 per cent. Well, if the debt-to-income ratio is greater than zero, then it follows that the debt is greater than zero, which in turn means that the province is in debt, or, in other words … in hock. Hmm! Greg DePaco, New Westminster

Don’t blame truck drivers

Dear Editor:

When I read L. Luyten’s letter, Trucks are a safety hazard, in the April 18 edition of The Record, I was quite upset and disturbed. I’m a professional truck driver and a citizen and taxpayer of the City of New Westminster. I’m a second-generation truck driver, with just over 11 years experience in the industry. Any time there is a fatality as the result of a motor vehicle accident, whether or not it involves a commercial vehicle, it’s a tragedy. But Luyten seems to infer that all accidents involving trucks are automatically the truck driver’s fault. That is simply not the case. There are a number of times where people in cars have caused accidents with trucks. Over the years many truck drivers have lost their lives as the result of bad decisions made by people driving cars. Luyten goes on to state that he ”would estimate that out of 10 vehicles, seven are not road safe.” I’m interested on where he comes up with this number? I personally disagree with it entirely. I believe that the number is below 10 per cent. But then again, I myself could be wrong. Because, for whatever reason, the government has chosen to not be directly

involved in the issue of truck safety when it comes to safety inspections. Most commercial vehicles have to be inspected at least once a year or, depending on what maintenance program you are on, twice a year. The inspection guidelines are set by the Ministry of Transportation, but the inspections themselves are carried out by the private sector. The provincial Liberal government showed how high a priority they place on vehicle safety in the Lower Mainland when they closed the Pattullo scale and knocked down the only enclosed full inspection station in the region. The trucking industry does have its problems. A lot of them, in my opinion, can be directly attributed to when the industry was deregulated back in the midto late 1980s. I choose to drive like a professional. Perhaps its because I’m an hourly paid company driver, and a proud Teamster. And there are a lot of people like me, Teamsters and non-Teamsters alike. I would love it if every truck driver was paid by the hour, received good pay and didn’t have to make the choice in a lot of cases of whether to maintain their equipment or feed their families and pay their bills. There are some drivers in that exact position, and some companies who choose to shirk responsibility for properly maintaining their equipment all in the name of staying profitable or making more money. Those companies should be dealt with. But until the government of the day steps up and chooses to deal with the industry and problems within the industry, there will always be those who try to take the shortcut on maintenance and safety. Until the systemic problems of the trucking industry are acknowledged and addressed, there will always be those who choose to not act professionally. I, for one, choose not to be one of those types. And I do not appreciate people like L. Luyten and others somehow portraying things like it’s all truck drivers. Dave Lundy, New Westminster

Choices: ‘Best’ isn’t always better ◗ continued from page 6

But … in the early years of the war, German tanks killed a lot of Russian tanks. The Russian crews were badly trained. They had no radios. Stalin had spent a decade purging the Red Army, and as a side effect almost everyone in Russia who understood tank warfare had been shot, or starved to death in Siberia. The Russians had a steep learning curve before their cheap, reliable tanks were actually useful. We face these questions

about complexity, simplicity, and cost on a constant basis today, so there are lessons to be learned from both the space pen and the T-34. If you’re designing a public transportation system, do you want it to be high-tech and appealing to drivers? Then you want a light rail or SkyTrain system. But what if you want to change the system’s capacity rapidly, and build on the cheap? Then you want more buses. What about the F35 fighter jets, versus

unmanned drones? Build a wider, tolled highway bridge, or subsidize highspeed internet so people can work from home. Of course, each choice has its own problems and quirks that can’t be found in the up front costs. The simple alternative isn’t always simpler, the best isn’t always better, and the most expensive option might save in the long run.

Police, paramedics save woman’s life

Two New Westminster police officers helped paramedics save the life of a 65year-old on April 14. On that Saturday night, a New Westminster police officer, along with a female recruit, came upon an ambulance parked on the side of the road in the 200 block of Columbia Street. The ambulance’s emergency lights were flashing and the paramedics were trying to use a defibrillator on a 65-year-old woman. The patient went into cardiac arrest and

the paramedics were both required to provide medical assistance, leaving no one to drive the ambulance. The senior officer on the scene jumped in to perform cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and chest compressions on the woman while a paramedic drove to Royal Columbian Hospital. The recruit followed in the police cruiser. The woman is currently recovering at Royal Columbian. – Alfie Lau

Nina position. It’s starting to break down. That means cooler weather. The 30-day forecast is favourable for a slow thaw.” As the snow pack melts, the City of New Westminster will continue to keep an eye on the river levels and inform residents if there’s any risk of flooding. If necessary it will make some improvements to those areas that aren’t covered to the 500-year flood level. “It’s fairly quick to do,” Puchmayr said. If necessary, sandbags would be placed in an area of Queensborough near the old shipyard. Some interlocking blocks that have remained in place in a small area near

Braid Street would be taken apart so a new membrane could be put in place to ensure there is zero penetration from rising water. According to Puchmayr, the area that’s now home to Westminster Pier Park has been built up as part of the park construction and isn’t at risk of flooding any longer. “It’s been a real positive mitigation in building that park,” he said. As the likelihood of high water becomes more known as the snow pack melts, Puchmayr said the City of New Westminster will keep residents and businesses informed about the potential risk of flooding. www.twitter.com/TheresaMcManus

Whooping cough still a concern in region Adults are being urged to get pertussis vaccine BY CHRISTINA MYERS REPORTER cmyers@royalcityrecord.com

The Fraser Health Authority is again urging people in this area to get a whooping cough vaccine, as more cases of the highly infectious illness continue to crop up. The authority sent out a new public service announcement Thursday morning, noting that anyone who is in regular contact with children, including pregnant women and their partners, should get the vaccine, which is currently being offered for free in an effort to combat the spread of the illness. “Fraser Health has distributed over 30,000 doses of the whooping cough vaccine to doctors and pharmacists,” said Dr. Paul Van Buynder, chief medical health officer for Fraser Health. “We continue to see new cases and urge anyone who has or expects to have contact with infants and young children to get vaccinated.” In all, there have been more than 250 cases of whooping cough – or pertussis – reported in the region since December, with nearly 50 since the start of March alone. The outbreak was initially confined to the eastern part of the health authority, in the Hope area, but newer cases have appeared throughout the region and into

neighbouring health regions. Dr. Elizabeth Brodkin with the Fraser Health Authority told The Record in February that true numbers are likely much higher – as much as three times higher – as cases go unreported or simply undiagnosed in mild cases. In most cases, pertussis causes severe coughing that can last for several months, and can be particularly risky or even fatal for young children and babies. Of infants one year and under who contract pertussis, about 50 per cent will be hospitalized. The bacteria that causes it is considered highly infectious and easily spread as it’s an airborne bacteria that can travel from one person to another through coughing, sneezing or even laughing. Initial symptoms are similar to a cold, but the cough worsens, often leading to long coughing spells where the individual has a hard time catching their breath. The coughing can cause gagging or vomiting. Adults can access free vaccine through their family doctor or at participating pharmacies. See www.fraserhealth.ca/ whoopingcough for more information. The vaccine offers protection for four to 10 years; exposure to pertussis can lead to a natural “booster” but limited outbreaks in the last decade mean many adults have lost their natural immunity. The health authority is also urging parents to ensure their children are fully immunized. www.twitter.com/ChristinaMyersA

Douglas College under fire for overseas programs College will follow recommendations of an independent review BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster ’s Douglas College issued a media release saying it will follow all of the recommendations in an independent review of its China programs, which called into question the school’s integrity. The college’s reputation came under fire earlier this year in a Global TV current affairs show called 16x9. In the show, former Douglas College teachers say credentials were awarded to unqualified students, including some who barely understood English. They say the college knew about the problem and did nothing about

it at the time. The 2012 review followed up on a 2010 internal report by Douglas College faculty related to examination and grading practices at the college’s partner institutions in Shanghai and Harbin, the Douglas College release states. The consulting firm Deloitte found that Douglas College has already addressed a number of the issues identified in their review, and the review found “no evidence of systemic or widespread irregularities related to the examination or grading practices of either partner institution,” the release says. “After the 2010 internal review, administration and faculty worked together

to improve the partnership programs with the Heilongjiang Institute of Science and Technology and the Shanghai Institute of Foreign Trade,” board chair Paul Wates said in the release. “The board is pleased to see that the changes made in 2010 and 2011 are now in place and operational.” No one from the Douglas board would speak with The Record about the matter. A Douglas College spokesperson said the board felt that the report “spoke for itself.” The Deloitte report is available on request through the college.

Walking for mental health

New Westminster residents are once again encouraged to take a walk in the park for a good cause. The second annual Miles for Mental Health run and walk event is scheduled for Saturday, May 12 at 10 a.m. at Queen’s Park in New Westminster. The Canadian Mental Health Association – Simon Fraser Branch is hosting this event to raise awareness for mental health and reduce the stigma of mental

illness. One in five Canadians will experience a mental illness, according to the association, which reports the second leading cause of death among young people aged 16 to 24 is suicide, while the leading cause of hospitalization among the active population aged 20 to 40 is mental illness. The family-friendly run and walk, presented by Douglas College and supported by the

City of New Westminster and other partners, will feature live music, food vendors, an art exhibition and keynote speeches. The association’s Simon Fraser branch serves 130 housing clients, more than 200 outreach clients and a varying number of clients for other services each year. To register, or for more information about the Miles for Mental Health run and walk, visit www. mentalhealthrun.ca. – Marelle Reid

An information session giving an overview of the Canada Pension Plan and the Old Age Security programs will be held at the New Westminster Public Library on Thursday, April 26 from 10 a.m. to noon. Eligibility requirements, types of benefits available, benefits for low-income seniors and the changes to the Canada Pension Plan will be discussed. There will be a question-and-answer time. The library is located at 716 Sixth Ave. and is wheelchair-accessible. For more information and to register, phone New Westminster Public Library at 604-527-4667.

plant sales but knows it’s time to scale back her workload. “For the club it is going to be missed,” she said. “All the club members are involved in the sale. It’s an identity thing for the club. I think they are going to miss that. It’s a big project that they are involved in.” Barnes is quite confident that the New Westminster Horticultural Society will offer plant sales in the future, but they’ll probably be on a smaller scale. She thinks “theme sales” that focus on items like winter vegetables, shrubs or tomatoes may have potential – and will take a lot less time to plan and organize.

oyal City residents are invited to help beautify a local neighbourhood this weekend. The NIMBÉ Community Clean-up is an initiative designed to bring the community together to remove litter and trash from environments that people share and enjoy. The community cleanup will get underway on Saturday, April 21 at 10 a.m. at the Moody Park spray park that’s located beside Century House. NIMBÉ is an acronym for Neighbours Into More Beautiful Environments. The volunteer cleanup will run from 10 to 11:30 a.m. “It’s an opportunity to give back to our communities and make it into a better place for others,” said an email from organizer Joshua Pablo. “Gloves and garbage bags will be provided.”

The New Westminster Museum is exploring the history of video games in B.C. with its newest exhibit. The exhibit Creating the Virtual World: A History of Video Games in B.C. opens at the New Westminster Museum on May 2 and runs until Oct. 14. This family-friendly exhibition traces the global history of video games and highlights the frenetic, and sometimes fractured, world of video game hardware and software made in the province. According to the New Westminster Museum, British Columbia has become a hotbed for video game development, starting with the game Evolution in 1983. A press release notes that Pong, the first commercially successful arcade game, was also the simplest possible game. Its terse instructions were: “avoid missing ball for high score” – a far cry from the games enjoyed by

today’s kids that involve joysticks, stunning graphics and complex multiplayer games. As part of the exhibit, guest curator Ryan Cousineau will presents two Video Game Play Days on July 7 and Aug. 11. Both events run from 1 to 3 p.m.; space is limited, so people must register by calling 604-527-4640). “It’s a chance for kids to see the video games their parents used to play, with some of the greatest (and worst!) console games, on the original equipment,” Cousineau said. Cousineau, an audiovisual technology specialist at Douglas College, has been an avid video game player since his family bought its first game system, an Atari 2600. He worked in the game industry, as a tester of joysticks and game pads. The New Westminster Museum is located at 302 Royal Ave., behind Irving House. The New Westminster Museum and Irving House summer hours begin in May – Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is by donation.

Donation helps The Fraser River Discovery Centre is grateful for a $10,000 donation from TD Friends of the Environment Foundation. The funds will support the development, design and fabrication of the Fraser River Discovery Centre’s Discovery Zone, an interactive space for families to learn about the Fraser River together. The Discovery Zone includes George the sturgeon, a life-size model replica of a Fraser River white sturgeon; the Sturgeon Life Survival Game, where visitors discover the amazing life of the largest fresh water fish in North America; the Pollution Model, an interactive three-dimensional representation of the Fraser River Estuary that demonstrates how pollution travels and enters waterways; and an inviting puppet theatre with many furry friends waiting to be animated by visitors’ imaginations. “TD Friends of the Environment Foundation is very proud to support the Fraser River Discovery Centre’s

hands-on education for youth and families,” said Bill Cunningham, chapter coordinator of the Burnaby/New Westminster TD Friends of the Environment Foundation. “This project is a great example of our focus on supporting local projects that assist youth in understanding and participating in environmental activities.” The Fraser River Discovery Centre is located at 788 Quayside Dr. and is open Wednesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission to exhibit galleries is by donation. “The Discovery Zone is packed with interactive components that are engaging and fun and is the corner stone of our education programs for school groups. Since its opening in January, the Discovery Zone has been a hot spot of the Centre,” said Catherine Ouellet-Martin, executive director of the Fraser River Discovery Centre. “It is with contributors like TD Friends of the Environment Foundation that we are able to provide our young visitors with an opportunity to develop a

respect for the river so it can be sustained for generations to come.” The TD Friends of the Environment Foundation is a national organization, formed by TD Bank Group. It funds local projects that are dedicated to preserving the environment and works with Canadians who are committed to protecting the environment in their own community and across the country.

Canadians are living longer and costs for the Old Age Security (OAS) are rising. On April 1, 2023 the Government of Canada plans to start raising the age of eligibility for OAS and the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) from 65 to 67.*

What does this mean for you? 54 or older as of March 31, 2012

You may still obtain OAS/GIS at age 65

53 or younger as of March 31, 2012

The age of eligibility for OAS/GIS will change gradually between 2023 and 2029

Starting in July 2013, Canadians who are eligible for, but not yet receiving OAS will have the flexibility to delay receiving it in exchange for a higher monthly amount at a later date.

The number of working-age Canadians for every senior is decreasing** 6

The number of working-age Canadians per senior is decreasing, placing additional pressure on the OAS program.

Educate your kids on hunger BY LIZ HUNTER CONTRIBUTOR editorial@royalcityrecord.com

T

ired of all things “Hunger” related? Perhaps we should look deeper at “hunger” and what it means for global communities today and in the future. While Hunger Games storms theatres, and everyone stuffs themselves with buttery popcorn, we mustn’t forget that the world faces a growing crisis in food production, distribution and consumption. Oxfam suggests that by 2050, the planet will need to produce enough food to feed nine billion people. Our growing numbers increasingly encroach on diminishing lands and thus, the stuff of dystopian stories like the Hunger Games, so eagerly devoured nationwide today, may become a frightening reality. Start your exploration at the New Westminster Public Library with Food, Inc. (Blu-ray disc) which critiques systems of global food production and Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System by Raj Patel. If you’re still committed, watch the World According to Monsanto for a look at the implications of genetic modification on global food systems. Delve further with Enough: Why the World’s Poorest Starve in an Age of Plenty by Robert Thurow and Fair Food by Oran Hesterman (downloadable eBook), which discuss issues and alternatives for sustaining growing

demand on the world’s food systems. Initiate discussion with your kids by letting them watch Wall-E in which Earth is decimated and the human race lives off-planet in an extreme state of obesity (they can no longer even walk), living off prefab foods. Your teens might prefer books that discuss youth confronting food problems such as anorexia nervosa. Skin by Adrienne Vrettos and Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson are good options. And the next time the kids plead for a trip to McDonald’s, sit them down to watch Super Size Me, in which a man who lives off nothing but McDonald’s food for a month becomes ill. Raising “hunger” awareness with children today will provide the means for critical problem-solving tomorrow. Ask our librarians for other suggestions related to this challenging problem.

system, of past years, and we feel confident that they will prove alike advantageous to all concerned and give general satisfaction, after a fair trial. They will be uniformly enforced without deviation or exception.” The nine clearly laid out rules and regulations followed in the paper. Obviously John had some concerns with the way his business was going and how it was being used by his customers, and he was setting out to correct the problem. Reading between the lines we can identify some

of what might have been bothering Capt. John Irving. Rule 1 very clearly stated that there would be no credit given for “freight, fare, meals or beds.” Rule 2 said that the company was not responsible for packages not properly marked and placed appropriately for shipping. Rule 3 was for shippers and demanded that there be receipts in duplicate for each package. Rule 4 made it clear that if you shipped an item you had better have a receipt for the piece or the com-

ARTHRITIS

Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products, physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the American food industry. No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let activists confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples:! Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those #1 millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON !My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA!I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON!Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.!For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC!Others write: Can walk again for hours…Climb stairs without hanging on to railing…First time in 15 years can sleep at night…Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister.

Heartburn Reflux

The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 90% acidic food (meat, noodles, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food). If you cannot change your diet to USDA’s 50% or closer to 80% alkaline food, consider to supplement with a natural health product that helps to increase your pH alkaline level close to a healthy #7. Ask for Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects and may eliminate the need for antiacid pills many people take. As a bonus, an alkaline balanced body prevents many illnesses. See guarantee printed on box.

#39 ! Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC ! Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief and having no side effects. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA! Very happy with acid reflux relief. Last 4 years had increasing reflux despite taking anti-acid products. I am also trying to eat more alkaline food. Grzegorz Smirnow, 43, Mt. Prospect, IL ! Suffered with reflux, choking and coughing. After starting Bell #39 I feel great. Amazed about the complete relief. Thanks from the bottom of my heart. Katarina Tusa, 63, North York, ON !Was sleeping sitting up to avoid reflux. I thought I had this health problem for life like my other family members. Bell #39 brought quick relief. Can sleep now normally, have more energy, feel great. Bell products are quite different. Virginia Grant, 67, Markham, ON No need to make claims. Bell relays 100% truthful user’s free speech. No money is paid for it. No questions asked guarantee.

pany was not responsible for loss or damage. Rule 5 concerned the payment for all shipping charges before the goods were to be delivered. If you didn’t pay, then the goods were “stored at owner’s risk and expense.” Rule 6 stated that if you had a claim for loss or damage of goods you must have a proper bill and present it within 10 days of shipping the item. Rule 7 centred on having a company representative or consignee on hand to receive goods which must be paid for before the goods were

off loaded. Rule 8 concerned tickets which were to be purchased at New Westminster or Yale – extra rates were charged for tickets purchased on board. And Rule 9 said that if you were not treated in a “gentlemanly” way by any of the crew, you were to report same to the manager. These might seem pretty straightforward today, but at the time, they would seem to point to a problem or two with the shipping of goods and payment of fares. An interesting piece from our maritime heritage.

CONTROL WEIGHT = CONTROL BLOOD SUGAR

By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

Long term weight control without controlling blood sugar is destined to fail. This is why we have an epidemic of obesity. How it works: Stops the “roller coaster” of cravings and appetite to eat foods like sugar and starches that cause high blood glucose levels, which then brings on your pancreas to automatically pump insulin into your blood stream. Subsequently the high level of insulin precipitates low levels of blood glucose and cravings for more sugar and starchy carbohydrates (breads, noodles, crackers, cereals, french fries) which you don’t need and therefore it goes into unwanted fat storage and being overweight. Experts now recognize these basic facts.#40 Bell Blood Sugar Imbalance helps to stop this vicious cycle and puts you in control. Dr. Hammond says this natural product works 10 times better because it reprograms our brain and pancreas to release insulin in a controlled manner. Helpful non-fattening eating suggestions in the box. Fibers and exercise like walking are beneficial and help after you control the underlying basic blood sugar imbalance.

!Working in a health food store I heard people saying how well #40 #40 works. I tried it myself. Finally a product that controls my blood sugar much better than anything else we had in the store. Thank you for helping people around the world. Irene M. Urdialez, 43, Brynton Beach, FL ! My medical indicated pre-diabetic. I took #40. When re-tested readings were fine. This helped my metabolism and my weight is down 25 lbs. I am grateful to the health food store people for their advice. Michael O’Brien, 60, Rutherglen, ON ! I finally found the right approach to losing weight. I tried for 3 years to lose weight. After starting #40 my blood sugar is stable now. I was able to stop overeating and lost my excess weight. Sara John, 40, Kitchener, ON !I was struggling for 15 years with weight gain in spite of diet and exercise. I was diagnosed as prediabetic. I will forever be grateful to the store manager that explained to me to take #40 and read suggestions to avoid fattening foods. I lost 70 lbs. My fasting blood sugar is now 92. My 2 hour post meal glucose level is now 92 as well. My new shape raised my self-esteem and gave me immeasurable peace of mind. Karen Maples, 55, Clarksville, TN ! Diabetic eliminated high blood sugar levels with #40. My readings were 140 to 200 and are now 99 to 122 range where I want it to be. Before I bought about 10 different supplement that were more expensive and didn’t work as well. I also lost some weight. A great improvement in my health and daily living.

a colourful place in our history. In 1881, John Irving, himself a captain and manager of a fleet of vessels, decided to initiate a set of rules and regulations “governing freight and passage on the Pioneer Line of steamers.” In a “card” in the newspaper addressed “to merchants, farmers and the travelling public” he drew attention to his list of rules, commenting, “These rules and regulations have been adopted in consequence of the very general dissatisfaction arising out of the system, or rather want of

◗ GARDENING

Spring gardening questions answered BRANCHING OUT ANNE MARRISON

Question: Will it be all right to plant garlic cloves (to become garlic bulbs) next to strawberry, green beans, tomatoes, roses, primulas, day lilies, cornflowers, irises, oriental poppies or chives? – K., Coquitlam Answer: Garlic cloves will fit in well with all the plants you mention and may protect some against aphids and slugs. The garlic bed in my garden is the only place where slugs never venture! But garlic needs a sunny spot to produce well. If it’s barely surviving in semi-shade, it can still deter pests from attacking neighbouring plants. But if you want to harvest really good, large garlic clusters, it should be planted in a sunny spot. I might mention I’ve found garlic a good companion for carrots. They don’t shade or crowd each other’s space, and the garlic smell seems to deter the carrot rust fly. ◆ Question: Could you please advise me if buying the compost for my lawn and gardens sold by the City of Vancouver is good? If not, what would you suggest? Bill Stott, Vancouver

it develops more heat than most gardeners can achieve with home composting. This means city compost is well broken down and weed-free. But it’s not 100 per cent organic. City compost is made out of green waste from city streets and gardens where not all gardeners are organic. Another point is that the process can’t separate out very small pieces of extraneous material. So you may find a few tiny pieces of plastic, landscape fabric and so on. If you need completely organic compost in your garden, you might consider Sea Soil. This is a very nutritious fish and compost mix that’s available by the bag at most garden centres. Organic manure is also available at some garden centres. ◆ Question: I have some snow peas from last year’s harvest. I started to soak them in mid-February, and they are beginning to sprout. Should I put them in potting soil until they develop leaves or leave them in the water until I can plant outside in the garden? When should I plant them outside? – Ay-Hwa, Port Coquitlam

Answer: You should plant them outside right away because peas sprout best in cool conditions.

Don’t leave them in water. They’ll grow briefly and then rot.

Further e-mail: I did not know seeds would rot if left in water. I presume this applies to all other seeds including beans, even when they have not sprouted. Ay-Hwa Answer: Eventually they’ll rot, sprouted or unsprouted. The length of time a seed can be left in water varies for different species. Vegetable seeds should never be soaked for more than 48 hours, and for pea and bean seeds, 24 hours is plenty. Many gardeners prefer 12 hours. But some shrub and tree seeds can be left for several days. Seeds that have sprouted and are left in water will grow for a short time then die. If seed is soaked too long, the plants can have problems adapting to soil. This also can happen to cuttings sprouted in water. But soakings can benefit dried-out bulbs and tubers (snowdrops and anemones are likely candidates). These can be encouraged to sprout if they’re soaked in water for a few hours and immediately planted. Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her by email, amarrison@shaw.ca.

London the goal for goalballers

BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

This year’s national championships in Vancouver carry with it extra special significance for Canada’s goalball hopefuls. With just over four months left before the 2012 Paralympic Games in London, this weekend’s championships, which culminate in the finals at KillarneySecondarySchool in Vancouver Friday to Sunday, will also serve as a key selection tool for the national team to the Games this summer. “B.C. is one of the better provinces. Right now we have half the senior team from B.C. There is also one woman on the women’s team, plus two others on the development team,” said Mike Lonergan, program director for B.C. Bliind Sports and team leader for the 2012 Paralympic team. New Westminster’s Doug Ripley, a top Paralympic sprinter before shifting his focus to goalball, is currently a member of the six-player national men’s team along with Ahmad Zeidavi and Brendan Gavlin of Vancouver. Goalball was developed in 1946 as one method to help rehabilitate war veterans. It became a Paralympic sport in the 1970s and had its debut in Toronto in 1976. The women’s game came onboard at the 1984 Games in New York, where Canada debuted with a second-place finish. The women’s national

Blind block: Doug Ripley of New Westminster makes a save in goalball during a recent national team tryout at Massey gym in New Westminster. team has since won four more medals, including back-to-back gold at the 2000 and 2004 Games in Sydney and Athens, respectively. The best-ever showing for the men’s team was a silver medal at the Atlanta Games in 1996. At the Beijing Games, both the men and women finished in fifth place. This year’s nationals will see Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia taking part in the team trials.

The object of the game is to score into a gaping nine-metre net while blindfolded players rely on their hearing to help them block the ball, which is implanted with two bells for orientation purposes. “It’s throwing and blocking and the speed of the game,” said Lonergan. “The court is 18 metres long so players don’t have much time to track the ball.” With throwers hurling the weighted 1.25 kilogram ball to minimize its

bounce, blockers must orient themselves on the floor using stringed court lines. The speed of the game has also raised the level of fitness in today’s players, said Lonergan. Players have just 10 seconds to throw the ball, which can reach speeds of 70 kilometres per hour in the men’s game. An average number of saves per game runs into the 70s while game scores seldom reach double figures, Lonergan added. “It can be very exhaust-

ing,” he said. “A good thrower is what every team wants. It’s a benefit.” Hosting the nationals will be a great opportunity to send a message to the visually impaired community about what activities are out there, Lonergan said. “It shows blind athletes here that they have a chnce to take part in a sport – a competitive sport – that can take them to any level they want to go,” he said. The championships run all day April 20 to 22.

Soccer clubs to five Coastal A Cup semifinals BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Burnaby clubs are still alive in five Coastal A Cup playdowns. The Burnaby Selects advanced to the semifinals in four separate boys’ divisions, while the Burnaby Girls Strikers also moved into the final four in the under-18 age group following last weekend action. The u-18 Selects got shutout goalkeeping from Geordie Penman and single goals from Justin Dhaliwal and Jayson Santiago, with the game-winner in a 2-0 win over Langley United at Burnaby Lake-West on Sunday. The Selects also stayed in contention for the Coastal Cup in the boys’ u-13, u-14 and u-15 A playdowns.

Oliver Morrison-Harding broke open a 1-1 matchup with Vancouver FC midway through the second half with a pair of goals, including the game-winner on a nifty flick over the goalie off a long free kick. Burnaby went on to win 3-1. Sebastian Solorio Diaz opened the scoring for the u-14 Burnaby club with a first-half marker. Burnaby will take on No. 1 Port Moody on Saturday at 2 p.m. The u-13 regular season champion Selects bombed the West Vancouver Rangers 8-0 in their quarter-final match Saturday. Sekawnee Baker led the way with a hat trick, while Mario Greco and Abobaker Ghaus both notched a pair of goals. Tak Tasaka added a single marker for the Selects, which lost just once this season.

Aleks Kalajdzic got the shutout in goal for Burnaby. Burnaby takes on CCB Pegasus in the semifinal at Burnaby LakeWest at noon Saturday. The u-15 Selects also won, beating Surrey Guildford 3-1 at Cloverdale Athletic Park. Eric Malli potted a pair of goals for the winners, including the game-opening tally. James Szabo collected the other Burnaby marker, giving the Selects a 2-1 lead in the second half. The Selects play Central City Pegasus from Surrey on Sunday at Newton Athletic Park at 2 p.m. The Burnaby Girls also won their quarter-final, blanking Langley FC 5-0.

Bruins rated high for WHL draft BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Three Burnaby Winter Club hockey players were projected as top-10 forward picks at the upcoming Western Hockey League bantam draft. Matthew Barzal, Adam Musil and Ty Ronning of Burnaby were all picked as possible first-rounders by Global Edmonton reporter Dean Millard on WHL’s prospect central website. Barzal, the MVP at the recent Western Canada AAA bantam championship won by the winter club for a second consecutive season, was ranked the top forward pick overall. “A superstar in waiting,” said Millard in the online release. “Wouldn’t be surprised if someone

tried to get him in the league next year.” The 6-1, 165-pound Musil, son of former NHLer Frank Musil, was slotted as the likely No. 2 pick. “Frank’s kid is an exceptional skater for a big power forward. Not fun to play against. … very tough,” Millard added. In the 10th spot was Ronning, the son of former Vancouver Canucks and Burnaby Sports Hall of Fame forward Cliff Ronning. Millard had high praise for the 5-7 winger, who had four goals and seven assists at the recent Western Canada championships. “Maybe the best habits of any forward in this draft,” said Millard. “Has work ethic like his father, and maybe more skill.”

Cancer June 21-July 22: A wish or two might come true over the few weeks ahead. You face a rising popularity, optimism and happiness. Social delights and entertainment arrive. At work, there will be plenty of discussion, but not necessarily action. Still, you are free to communicate with VIPs and higher-ups, and they “like the cut of your jib,” as people used to say. Sunday’s happy. Retreat for a wee rest Monday (careful driving, talking) through Wednesday. Your energy and charisma surge upward Thursday/Friday – use this to overcome domestic and partnership “objections.” Buy electronics Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Be ambitious. You might face an ethical or social dilemma on the work front this week. The solution: act ethically, work hard – despite possible pressure from others. Your social life looks grand to early August –you could meet (or have, in April) a gracious, talkative person who lifts your heart a notch. This could become a major affair, but give it time. September onward will tell the truth. That truth might come in the form of a second love prospect – or not. Don’t reject; do be patient. Your prestige rises Sunday. Love, social joys tickle you Monday/Tuesday and Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A sweet, mellow mood flows over you for the weeks ahead. Intellectual, cultural and travel involvements grow. Higher-ups favour you until mid-2013, but hidden glitches exist through August, so step carefully for four months; keep your “moral antennae” fully awake. Sunday’s mellow, wise. Your ambitions awaken (or authorities demand attention) Monday to Wednesday noon. Though you meet much luck and good feeling these days, realize that romance (and communications about it) can upset your financial and intimate applecart. (A slowmotion upset.) Social joys Thursday/Friday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: One of the most significant months of this year, perhaps of many years, faces you. You’re likely to make some change(s) now that determine to a large extent what your future holds. You might purchase a home or other real estate (or invest in other things) change your lifestyle, start a powerful sexual relationship, become pregnant, discover a major secret, inherit, or otherwise take some deep step that has big consequences. This should work well, so go ahead, don’t waffle nor opt for passivity. Only one warning: stay away from overly legal, international or scholastic situations. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: No matter how much you protest and complain, true love is coming. It might come today or in five, even 10 years – but while you wait, pleasure and romantic notions will buoy you. Sunday (be early!) and the weeks ahead bring exciting meetings, partnership prospects, relocation and business opportunities – and opposition, if you’re selfish. Don’t be – the rewards for co-operation are big and lucrative. Finances, lifestyle changes, health diagnoses and sexual desires loom large Monday/ Tuesday: act in ambition zones (career, work) Monday, not in legal areas. Love is possible! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Off to work you go, for several weeks. Protect your health; eat and dress sensibly. A Sunday morning chore might turn to a large task/project for two months – a good one. Relationships confuse, anger and please you Monday to Wednesday (in love, but also in status and money zones). There could be a “parting is such sweet sorrow” situation. Or, a crucial link simply needs “revision.” Guard your money Thursday/Friday – don’t invest. (Longer term, it would disappoint). A mellow, wise, loving mood (and friends) arrive Saturday. Many prospects come for singles, now to mid-2013.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Chase money. Your work efforts yield extra cash – try to turn any monetary increase into a permanent situation – e.g., a pay raise is better than some overtime. The entire month ahead features buying, selling, possessions, memory, rote learning and sensual links. If you’re married, you and your spouse face a friendly, pleasant time together, through July. If single, romance is (will be) light, friendly, casual, same period – though it won’t survive if it starts before Thursday. Home, security and property values concern you Thursday/Friday. Romance, creativity Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your energy, charm, clout and effectiveness reach a yearly height this week and the next few. Start important projects, and tackle chores or meetings that have intimidated you – you’ll succeed.Your money luck looks buoyant now to early August. If you’re unemployed, the months ahead are an excellent interval to look for work. I’ve called this your lucky year, yet many of you have faced upheaval – in there lies the purest good luck. Chase money carefully Monday, confidently Tuesday. A love link might be strained midweek. Talk, travel Thursday/Friday. Home, Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Retreat, rest, now to May 19 (especially Sunday). You will continue to be attractive to the opposite sex (for 14 months) but your energy and pizzazz are low through the few weeks ahead. This is nature’s time for healing, recuperation and spiritual contact. Be charitable, visit old friends, interface with government. These weeks can present you with good investment opportunities – AFTER Wednesday – especially if you keep these key words in mind: retreat, security, safety. You shine Monday/ Tuesday. Overcome a domestic liability. Organize your money chaos Thursday. Joy, Saturday!

April 22 - 28, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Ah, sweet romance! The weeks ahead feature love, pleasure, selfexpression, beauty, winning gambles, and joys with children. There is talk of endings, or of security, home, foundations. Your work scene is pleasant; co-workers are affectionate, into early August. Take advantage of this not to work harder, but to gain a little rest – your chores will multiply from June onward. Your best rest during the month ahead will be adventure, love’s escapades, and creative involvements. Sunday’s loving. Tackle chores Monday to Tuesday. Relationships excite, and challenge, Thursday/Friday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead feature endings and new beginnings, grand luck in real estate, therapies that give you new hope (especially family-oriented counselling, or therapies for digestion). Luck soars in security, retirement and similar zones. You might end a relationship, perhaps with an entire group. You’re pruning your social tree. Sunday’s restful; be home or in nature. Romance, creativity and speculation call Monday to Wednesday, but go slow: a secret factor might “crush” a friend’s or lover’s feathers. Tackle chores – carefully – Thursday/ Friday. Friends, excitement Saturday! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Discussions about money, perhaps with a partner or spouse, run into problems the first half of this week. But generally (Wednesday p.m. onward) the air clears and these talks can lead to a career advancement or upward status. You are favoured to buy real estate now to mid-2013, but until Aug. 30 traps and pitfalls exist, so go slow. (That upward status might occur via property: buying a more prestigious house.) Sunday’s restless, talkative, lucky. Home, kids, property occupy you Monday-Wednesday. Romance, creativity and a wee winning streak Thursday/Friday. Chores, Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673
