Fighting the wrong enemy

Oval to be short track speed skating hub

A screening in Richmond sheds light on the failures of the U.S. war on drugs — a panel discussion that followed showed how Canada’s not far off.

The Richmond Olympic Oval will now be home to short track speed skating in British Columbia. The oval and Speed Skating Canada (SSC) have agreed to create a Short Track Legacy Program, (STLP) intended to provide a complete pathway for Canadian speed skaters, from first exposure to the sport through high performance training and elite competition. “Speed skating will always have a special place in Richmond as we all have thrilling memories of Canada’s Gold Medal victories at the oval …,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “... it’s exciting to know that speed skating will now have a permanent, ongoing program in the oval, which should provide many new milestones see Program head page 4

Councillor dreams up made-in-B.C. solution, while city backs off ban on fin sales BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Veteran city councillor Harold Steves has come up with an inventive plan to solve the shark fin debate in Richmond and B.C. During a meeting where city council all but accepted the fact it couldn’t impose a ban on the sale of shark fin products, Steves — despite acknowledging shark fins are federally regulated — suggested a provincial ban on the importation of fins from outside of B.C. He said there’s an abundance of dog sharks in provincial waters, especially around the Queen Charlotte Islands, that could be harvested in a controlled manner to serve the local shark fin market. “This could be a compromise, as there’s not enough of a market right now for dog sharks,” said Steves. “The sharks in B.C. are like the rabbit population in Richmond, they’re out of control.” Steves said the likes of the BC Asian Restaurant Café Owners Association, which

threatened to take legal action against any ban, could easily be requested to use the local product only. “This could guarantee that (shark fin) soup was made with a B.C. product,” he added. “I think we should take this step and we have an opportunity here to open up a new market.” A report written by senior city staff advised council Monday that any regulation of the controversial product should be done federally and not at a municipal level. Shark fins are prevalent in B.C.’s Chinese community, as many believe it carries powerful health benefits and the very expensive soup made from it displays, in the same circles, prosperity and wealth. According to the report, there are “significant challenges” linked to enforcing a bylaw, such as no authority to seize products and no resources to identify the product’s origin. Also, Vancouver and Burnaby, which were considering a ban, have now softened their approaches or backed down altogether.

And with an Ontario Superior Court ruling that Toronto’s shark fin bylaw was outside its jurisdiction, a ban in Richmond was always going to be difficult. Instead, the city could join forces with the BC Asian Restaurant Café Owners Association to publish a brochure on consumer awareness on the issue. The city was first asked last summer by the Vancouver Animal Defense League to consider banning the sale of shark fins, due to the drastic decline in certain species around the globe because of the illegal and cruel act of finning. In particular, the league targeted the Chinese restaurant community in Richmond, where shark fin soup is still on some menus. New Westminster NDP MP Fin Donnelly is trying to push anti-shark finning legislation through the House of Commons, with a vote expected at the end of this month. However, it’s not expected to pass, with many Conservative MPs, including Richmond’s Alice Wong, having already spoken out in favour of the status quo.

Waging the war on drugs, crime BY

YVONNE

Richmond screening sparks prevention questions, fears

ROBERTSON

yrobertson@richmond-news.com

Kevin Ott resides in an Oklahoma prison for possession of three ounces of methamphetamine. After losing his job during the recession, he turned to dealing. Although he’s not violent, he’s currently serving his 14th year in prison. He says he’ll probably be there “until I die.” In Vermont, Anthony Johnson faces five to 40 years for trafficking. For Johnson, who grew up around drugs, dealers became his role models. His father has only just been released. Such were typical scenes in Eugene Jarecki’s documentary about the U.S. war on drugs, The House I Live In, which screened in Richmond last Thursday preceding a panel discussion. Richmondites, along with most Canadians, often take comfort in the fact that these types of situations stop at the border. However, a sweep of recent actions by Harper’s government have moved Canada in a more southerly direction. In the fall of 2011, the government began the country’s largest prison expansion since the 1930s, according to an article written by Vancouver lawyers David Eby and Avnish Nanda. This expansion resulted in B.C.’s first private prison opening in nearby Surrey. Last March, Bill C-10: The Safe Streets and Communities Act was passed. “To help fill those [new prison] beds,” Eby and Nanda write, the bill introduced mandatory minimum sentencing, which means a judge can’t take the individual circumstances into account. “Criminalization is accelerating,” said one of Thursday’s panelists, Ann Livingston of the Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users. “People are getting arrested for possession of smaller amounts, and most of the jail time served is because they’re failing to show up for one of their many court appearances.” “These are easy targets for police, where these people can’t afford lawyers.” Livingston believes it’s these small arrests, usually of non-violent, low-income people, that clog the court system and make for a dangerous society. “Police are always going for the low-hanging fruit to get their arrest numbers up,” she said. “The majority of their resources are going towards this drug war so that little is being done to solve the real dangerous crimes, that might be more difficult to investigate.” Richmond RCMP’s Sgt. Cam Kowalski takes issue with the notion that police need to fill specific arrest quotas. “That is a fallacy which has spread,” he said. “I mean, we should be making arrests, that’s us doing our job, that’s what it means to be in enforcement.” Last year in Richmond, police made 619 drugrelated arrests, and it’s not uncommon for offi-

“YOU AND THE LAW” TWO ACCIDENTS, BUT ONLY ONE LAWSUIT

Say you’re injured in a car accident that’s not your fault. Then, before you’re fully recovered, you get hurt again in another accident, where you’re also not to blame. Do you have to sue both defendants and have two trials – at double the cost? No, not if your injuries are “indivisible,” decided the BC Court of Appeal in a recent case. Nora (not her real name) was a 26-yearold waitress whose car was rear-ended in March, 2006 by the defendant while she was stopped at a red light. She felt pain in the back of her head and neck and was extremely shaky immediately after the crash. She took a week off work and went to a walk-in medical clinic twice during that week, where she was prescribed Tylenol 3 and physiotherapy. After, she went for three physiotherapy sessions and 35 chiropractic treatments. In November, 2007, she started her lawsuit against the defendant. Then, in July, 2008, a pick-up truck backed into her while she was sitting in her parked car in a parking lot. Again, she wasn’t at fault. At this time, she was about 80% recovered from the first accident, but the second accident aggravated the soft tissue injuries from the first accident and basically set her back to square one in terms of her recovery. Her doctor testified that her injuries after the second accident were similar to those she suffered in the first. The trial judge concluded that Nora’s injuries in the second accident were “indivisible” from the injuries in the first (she essentially suffered the same injuries in the same area). He then considered prior case law and BC’s Negligence Act,

Program head: Will be Level 5 coach

which says that if two or more people are responsible for a loss or injury, they’re both liable for the whole amount. Ultimately, the judge decided the defendant had to pay 100% of the damages awarded to Nora for both accidents – which was $30,000 for her pain and suffering plus some $1,800 for lost income and chiropractic and other expenses. The defendant appealed, arguing she should only have to pay for the portion of Nora’s injuries that she caused (which she claimed was about 60% of the total damage award). But the Court of Appeal disagreed and sided with the trial judge. The defendant and the second at-fault driver both caused and contributed to Nora’s soft tissue injuries, which weren’t separable. So the defendant was fully liable to pay 100% of the plaintiff’s compensation. Now, the defendant was free to pursue the second motorist to sort out who was responsible for what portion of Nora’s injuries and recover the portion that the second motorist caused. But the defendant had to pay Nora the total judgment. The situation would be different if you suffered different injuries in two different accidents. If driver A hurts your arm in one accident and then driver B injures your leg in a subsequent accident, these wouldn’t be indivisible injuries, and each driver would only be responsible for the injury they caused. But it’s not uncommon to suffer the same or similiar soft-tissue whiplash injury in a second car crash. In such a case, it’s good news for the injured person that each defendant is fully liable for the injuries and losses caused by both accidents.

Yap confident of being cleared, despite resigning Steveston MLA was hired three months after document created BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap has resigned his cabinet role as Multiculturalism Minister until a review of the so-called “Ethnic-gate” controversy is completed. Yap’s shock departure was announced Monday in the Legislature by Premier

Christy Clark as she once more apologized after a strategy to win ethnic votes, created by government staff, was leaked last week. Clark said Yap has stepped down John Yap until the review is completed by the premier’s deputy minister. The premier refused to elaborate on why Yap has left the cabinet post, adding

only that Minister of State for Seniors, Ralph Sultan, would be taking over Yap’s duties. Yap did not return a News call Monday, but he told reporters in Victoria that he was taking full responsibility for the contents of the report. “This involves multiculturalism and the responsibility rests with me as the minister responsible for multiculturalism,” he said. Yap said he doesn’t know the author of the report, but since it falls under his ministry, he would step down until the review into the ethnic voter strategy is

complete. He added that he is confident the report will clear him of any wrongdoing. “I was caught completely off guard by this document,” said Yap. “The document never hit my desk and some of the ideas in there and language used are completely unacceptable.” The leaked government strategy was written a full three months before Yap was even named Multiculturalism Minister. Yap’s departure is the second resignation related to the scandal. see Premier page 6

Continued from page 5 The premier’s longtime adviser and deputy chief of staff, Kim Haakstad, resigned Friday. The draft multicultural outreach plan, dated 2012, appears to show officials in the premier’s office, the multiculturalism ministry, and the Liberal caucus collaborating to use taxpayer resources to help the B.C. Liberal Party attract voters in ethnic communities and improve the chance of winning key ridings in the election. The document also encouraged the government to offer apologies for historical wrongs to ethnic communities as “quick wins.” Clark continued to insist the premier’s office did not draft the document, though Haakstad did oversee it.

EDUCATION

Daycare policy already in effect BY YVONNE ROBERTSON

yrobertson@richmond-news.com

The Richmond School District is already one step ahead of Ministry legislation. Minister of Education Don McRae stated a new legislation could require all school boards to establish a policy promoting the use of their property by licensed childcare providers between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays. This is provided the property is not required for educational purposes, early learning programs or extracurricular school activities. “They’re just catching up to what we’ve been doing,” said school board chair Donna Sargent. “All our schools are used for daycare, and after-school and before-school programs. It’s a better school experience for the child to have all these services in the same place, and somewhere to go before and after school.” The district doesn’t use any of its own funding to support daycares, however, nonprofit and profit organizations rent the facilities at different rates. All rental funds acquired by the district go back into the operating budget. “We try not to make money off of the daycares because that’s something the students need and benefit from,” said Sargent. The government introduced Bill 8, the Miscellaneous Statutes Amendment Act, 2013 on Feb. 20, which includes these pro-

posed amendments to the School Act, concerning the use of board property for childcare purposes.

District recommends twoyear calendar, not three

The Richmond School District is recommending the board approve a two-year school calendar for submission to the ministry. The decision comes after a six-day consultation period with parents and employees regarding a proposal to approve a three-year school calendar. Even though the majority of respondents want a three year calendar, because the district can’t align the third year’s spring break with other school districts, it recommends submitting a two year calendar. Out of a total of 296 responses, 85 per cent supported the proposed three-year calendar, two per cent expressed concerns, and 13 per cent offered other comments. As feedback suggested, most people wanted the calendar written in advance to have a consistent and predictable standard calendar, and to align with Metro Vancouver School Districts’ school calendars. There will be full alignment of the 201314 Metro Vancouver school calendar, however, in 2014-15, the proposed two-week spring break spans a three week period. There is no alignment of school calendars in 2015-16, which is why the district is submitting a two-year school calendar instead.

Knocking on wrong door

K

nock, knock. Who’s there? It’s the federal government. Unfortunately, that line has struck a number of people as less than funny, after the feds sent workers to the homes of EI claimants to check on them. Ottawa claims the visits are needed to protect Canada’s EI program from fraud, although it’s hard to see how a house visit could accomplish that. Most job coaches will say that sitting at home isn’t the best way of finding work. The program smacks of intimidation, and does little that couldn’t be accomplished by picking up the phone. It also focuses energy in entirely the wrong place. Most people who are unemployed would prefer to be working. Fact is, the economic recovery has been painfully slow over the past several years. Despite the fact EI is an insurance program that workers pay into, the federal government has in recent years made it more difficult to qualify for benefits and cut the length of time benefits are received. None of which has done anything to help those who find themselves out of work through no fault of their own. Contrast this with the kid glove treatment recently afforded to Conservative senators who have apparently been claiming false residences in order to collect a special housing allowance at taxpayers’ expense. Recently Mike Duffy said he’d repay tens of thousands of dollars in housing allowance after falsely claiming a cottage in PEI was his principal residence. Seems a few folks in the Red Chamber could benefit from a government-sponsored house call.

CHOICE WORDS

Time for new government The Editor, We hear Christy Clark apologizing for the latest screw up concerning her government. The resignation of the assistant supposedly responsible for the election ploy, using government funds, is supposed to answer all the questions raised by this duplicitous operation. Oh, really? I cannot believe that this fully formed plan would have been developed without the knowledge of her superiors! Considering there was such a long lasting, close relationship between Clark and the person who resigned, it stretches credibility to the breaking point that the proposed operation was not known to Ms Clark! The feeble attempt to deflect criticism, by Mr. Yap, illustrates the calibre of some of the ministers in this government, and certainly provides further reason why a change is a necessity. A cynical saying has it that both politicians and diapers should be changed regularly. And for the same reason! Terrence Murphy Richmond

Political history set to repeat in B.C. Every time the B.C. Liberals chalk up another gaffe or scandal I’m increasingly reminded of the events of 1991, which permanently altered the political landscape in this province. Back then, of course, a long-time ruling political dynasty — the Social Credit party — was on its last dying legs and, with an unelected female leader, fell apart internally and during the election campaign. Currently, we seem to be hearing the death rattle of another political dynasty, the B.C. Liberal party, also headed up by an unelected female leader, who is furiously beating back challenges to her leadership from within. In 1991, the NDP’s campaign theme was “time for a change.” This time, the NDP’s theme is “change, one practical step at a time.” The NDP certainly read the mood of the electorate correctly in 1991 and appears to be reading it correctly this time. But will one historic occurrence from 1991 replay itself during May’s vote? I refer, of course, to the out-of-nowhere rise of a previously-dismissed third party option. In 1991, an obscure but effective B.C. Liberal party leader named Gordon Wilson shot upwards on the strength of a single sound-bite in the leaders’ debate

Keith Baldrey IN THE HOUSE

coupled with a desire of a great many people to wash their hands of the incumbent government but not to embrace the New Democrats. Wilson’s party essentially replaced the Socreds as the alternative party to the NDP. It was a historic shift, and paved the way for the B.C. Liberals to take power 10 years later. Can it happen again? Certainly, the B.C. Liberals seem to be teetering on the brink of a nervous breakdown. Throw in the fact the polls show the party’s credibility and popularity is deeply eroded with the public, and the stage is set for a mass departure from the party of people who supported it in the past. The polls show about a third of the party’s supporters in 2009 has already done just that. But that exodus could turn into a stampede, leaving the B.C. Liberals utterly spent as a political force. The question, though, is where could those voters go? Some would undoubtedly turn to the NDP, but a good many would look elsewhere. I speculated in this space a few weeks back

that a handful of independent, Green and B.C. Conservative candidates could have an impact in the election, some to the point of even getting elected. But if the B.C. Liberals completely fall apart and are deserted by a large chunk of the electorate, we’re talking about more than a handful of third party alternatives coming into play. Many voters will want to find a way to keep an NDP government honest and in check, and if the B.C. Liberals don’t look like a valid way to do that, they’ll go looking for another vehicle to register their view. If that’s the case, traditional election necessities for political parties such as funding and organizational ability go out the window. In 1991, some B.C. Liberal candidates were elected even though they didn’t actually campaign. As the 1991 campaign demonstrated, the fall of a ruling dynasty can be swift and dramatic. Of course, there’s still a chance the B.C. Liberals can pull themselves together and regain some lost ground with the public, to the point of winning enough seats to form a viable Opposition. In fact, that’s the best scenario the ruling party can hope for right now. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.

LEADERSHIP RACE

Liberals experiment with democracy I also know her, and given the current situation is the best choice for the job. I invite others to check her out. That said, the Liberals are also using a voting process called preferential ballot. This means while I’m a supporter of Ms. HallFindlay, I also should be looking at other candidates in the race and ranking them by preference, one

being first choice, through to nine, which is my last choice. This way one only needs to fill out the ballot once. Voting will be done by phone or online. The whole voting process from allowing nonmembers to be involved, preferential ballot and online, combined with phone voting is creating an opportunity for debate about how this can be

translated to greater participation from the broader community. Unfortunately, the cutoff to register was March 3. However, this race really is giving the average voter an opportunity to have a say in who becomes the Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, as it experiments with democracy. Don Grant Richmond

The Editor, There is a fascinating democratic process going on right now across the country. The federal Liberal Party of Canada is currently engaged in their leadership race. What is interesting is that for the first time, nonmembers have been invited to participate and have a vote for the leader. The non-members are designated as “Supporters” and have all the rights to be involved as regular members, except they don’t have to pay any money, or take out a membership. The party members approved this process at their last convention as a way to get more Canadians engaged in the political system without being forced to be a member. It is a little know fact, that during most election campaigns, regardless of party, most volunteers aren’t usually affiliated formerly with any party, just motivated by a situation, policy or know the candidate personally. So, for example, I’m a supporter of Liberal Leadership candidate Martha Hall-Findlay. I think she is intelligent, articulate, not afraid to ask or answer the tough questions, and will take principled stands on policy.

Wing renamed in honour of Milan Ilich The west wing of Richmond Hospital is being renamed the Milan Ilich Pavilion after yet another donation from the Milan & Maureen Ilich Foundation

took their giving total to an incredible $10 million. An artist’s rendering was unveiled Friday, attended by the Ilich family, health officials, MLAs, the mayor and

city council. The late Milan Ilich’s son, Rick, said he was as proud of the renaming as his dad would have been “awkward” about the recognition.

The Nguyen family gets the crab traps ready at Steveston Harbour. Bay Nguyen clips crab trap wires. They’re cleaning and tagging the traps for crabs near Vancouver Island, since the crabs are nearly non-existent near Richmond. They’re expected to prep 265 traps.

Being a chameleon can be exhausting There are many benefits to being a social chameleon. It’s a skill not everyone has. YOUTH The ability to glide into a room and fit in as if you were manufactured specifically to blend in with whoever happened to surround you at the moment is a gift. People smile at your entrance, gravitate toward your presence and chuckle once or twice when you contribute a witty piece to the conversation. Information on what to say and how to act seems to float in the air, and all you have to do is breathe it in. Absorb the moment. It’s hardly a lonely place to be. Invitations are thrown your way and organization is required to balance everything and everyone into your schedule. People like to be around someone that is confident, adaptable and interesting. Social chameleons are like that. But sometimes, after the get together when you get home there is a deflated feeling. Like Cinderella finding her ballroom gown has wilted back to rags, and you realize you’re so good at wearing masks you’ve somehow forgotten who’s hiding underneath. What is the colour of a chameleon anyway? I think they’re brown; not chocolate brown… but murky brown. They’re prettier when they have something behind them, something they can imitate and reflect. That’s when they’re beautiful.

Anna Toth

Changing colours can get addicting, when you learn the tricks. There is instant VIEWS gratification in being accepted and appreciated for what you bring to each party or hang out; a feeling that you are loved by not just a handful of true friends, but by a mass… a crowd. You come to expect the attention and the distraction. You’ll be hanging out with some people while communicating with others. Each group satisfies a certain facet of your personality and you come to need that. Yet somehow there is a superficiality that leaves you hollow when you’re sitting alone at home. Who is the chameleon? I’m not saying it’s not possible to have a solid personality when you’re used to juggling so many. I’m not saying that having a hundred or more different friends means that you’re spontaneous and indecisive. I guess I’m saying it can be tiring. And that when you learn to use noise and colour around you to pick up your cues and make your choices, you need to make sure that you can still exist, grow and thrive in the serene silence of your independent identity. Knowing who you are — completely separate from what everyone else is saying — is a sign that you can think for yourself and it can take away the necessity of wearing a mask. Anna Toth is a J.N. Burnett graduate and currently attends UBC.

MAJOR MIDGET HOCKEY

Canadians look to continue momentum against Chiefs BY MARK BOOTH

mbooth@richmond-news.com

MARK BOOTH/RICHMOND NEWS

Seafair product Austin Adamson has signed with the WHL Saskatoon Blades after leading the Greater Vancouver Canadians with 22 goals this season.

The Greater Vancouver Canadians are hoping their late season momentum will carry over to the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League playoffs. The Canadians closed out their schedule by winning 10 of 12 games and will travel to Coquitlam this weekend for a best-of-three quarter-final series against the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs in a match-up of fifth and fourth seeds. After a tough January stretch, the regional rep team turned its fortunes with an impressive two game sweep of the Chiefs. The Canadians went on to post a 22-15-3 record to finish the same spot in the standings as they did a year ago. Greater Vancouver swept the Okanagan Rockets then gave eventual champion Vancouver Northwest Giants all they could handle in a heartbreaking semifinal series loss that saw the deciding game determined in overtime. A similar path awaits them. “We would love another chance to

play the Giants but right now our focus is on trying to beat a good Chiefs team,” said Canadians head coach Leland Mack. “We have been playing some good hockey down the stretch, to the potential I thought this group was capable of. Hopefully we will continue it.” Greater Vancouver closed out its league schedule last weekend by taking a pair of games from the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds (5-1 and 6-1). Among the goal scorers was Austin Adamson who notched his team-leading 22nd of the season. That’s a significant improvement on his eight goal rookie campaign and the 17-year-old Seafair Minor Hockey product has been awarded by signing with the WHL’s Saskatoon Blades. “Austin has worked so hard for this, especially his time off the ice,” said Mack. “We took him on a year ago because we thought he would be a good player for us one day. He went to Seattle’s camp last summer and now has taken his game to another level where Saskatoon signs him. I’m really glad it’s worked out for him.”

Hugh Boyd Football program launching new concussion testing program today The Hugh Boyd Trojans Football Program begins its concussion testing today as approximately 30 Grade 8 players will undergo neuropsychological testing. Hugh Boyd Football is taking a proactive approach in managing the cognitive function of its players by partnering with Axon Sports and using its innovative Computerized Cognitive Assessment Tool (CCAT) as part of a concussion management program. The purpose of the Axon Sports CCAT is to establish and store a baseline of cognitive function. In the event that a player sustains a suspected concussion or other traumatic brain injury (TBI), the baseline results can be com-

pared with the player’s performance on an after injury test. This comparison helps to indicate any change in cognition and is an important tool in an overall concussion management program. Hugh Boyd Football is also taking the lead with concussion management by purchasing the football Shockbox Sensor. It is designed to be attached to the inside of a football helmet and provide an immediate wireless transmission to a smart phone when a player has experienced a head impact that could result in a concussion. “Hugh Boyd Football has always put the most up-to-date helmets and

equipment on its players, as well has taught them proper and safe playing techniques to ensure that they all are protected as best as possible” explained head coach, Bill Haddow. “The concussion online test and Shockbox are additional tools to make sure that players are receiving the best possible care.” Trojans assistant coach, former CFL player and local chiropractor, Dr. Sean Graham is coordinating the concussion management program at Hugh Boyd. Dr. Graham agrees that these resources are an important addition to the tools used by a qualified health professional in the assessment and diagnosis of a concussion.

FLETCHER, Jean Mavis May 11, 1950 - February 23, 2013

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Jean M. Fletcher. She passed away Saturday after a courageous battle with cancer. She will be greatly missed by her husband of 39 years, Mike, her 2 children Mark and Mackenzie, her brother Chic (Josephine), along with her niece Zoe, Mother-in-Law Gladys and nephews Paul (Joanne), Stephen (Maggie). Immigrating to Canada in June 1982, Mike and Jean settled in Richmond and have been residents ever since. She was known by so many for her devotion on and off the soccer field, and will always be remembered as a mother to so many as ‘Mama Jean’. For 10 years she walked the playgrounds of T. Homma Elementary School as a noon hour supervisor and could always be seen with a big smile on her face. She touched the lives of so many people and her generosity and love was felt by so many. Heartfelt thanks to all the friends and family who have supported us throughout our journey, we cannot begin to express our gratitude. Her service will be held at the Richmond Funeral Home on Friday, March 8th, 2013 at 1:00pm. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the BC Cancer Society.

How to write a classified ad that works. Writing an effective classified ad is easy when you use these time-tested principles. • Use a keyword. Start your ad with the item for sale, service offered or the job title. • Be descriptive. Give customers a reason to respond. Advertisers have found that the more information you provide, the better the response. • Limit abbreviations. Use only standard abbreviations to avoid confusion and misinterpretations. • Include price. Always include price of the item for sale. • How to respond. Always include a phone number (with area code) and/or street and email address.
