Planning begins for new Langford secondary school

A new secondary school project in the fast-growing Sooke School District will bring more new student seats for families.

“As more people choose to make British Columbia their home, we’re investing in schools to welcome new students,” said Rachna Singh, Minister of Education and Child Care. “That’s why we’re taking action by supporting new secondary school projects in one of the fastest-growing school districts in the province.”

With this announcement, planning for additional student seats at a new Langford secondary school can start.

“More than 10 years ago, I started advocating for two new schools in the Westshore, and I’m now proud to be an MLA delivering an investment to begin planning for a new high school in Langford,” said Ravi Parmar, MLA for Langford-Juan de Fuca. “The creation of a new, modern school for students to live, play and grow is going to benefit Langford for generations to come.”

Over the past seven years, government has provided approximately $270 million to create approximately 2,660 new student seats in the Sooke School District. This includes the new Pexsisen Elementary, Centre Mountain Lellum Middle school, an addition to Royal Bay Secondary and SĆIȺNEW SṮEȽIṮḴEȽ Elementary, and a 480-seat school with on-site child care, which is under construction.

“We will continue to ensure that all students have the opportunity to thrive and grow in safe, modern

spaces. This is why we will keep building and enhancing schools in the Sooke School District and throughout B.C.” said Mitzi Dean, Minister of State for Child Care. “We will continue to invest in the Langford school community.”

Additionally, earlier this year the Province announced it will provide $11.84 million for a full replacement of Port Renfrew Elementary as part of government’s seismic mitigation program.

The Province has also provided funding for prefabricated additions to two elementary schools in the Sooke School District. Expected to be built by fall 2024, the additions to David Cameron Elementary and Ruth King Elementary will add 190 seats to each school.

“In recent years, our experiences in school construction and design have underscored the vital importance of community engagement, particularly in shaping secondary sites,” said Amanda Dowhy, board chair, Sooke School District. “We are dedicated to collaborating closely with our community partners to ensure that our proposal reflects the collective aspirations and makes the most efficient use of the land and resources we have. Together, we strive to create a secondary school that not only caters to the needs of today’s students but also inspires and serves future generations.”

Since September 2017, the B.C. government has provided more than $4 billion for new and improved schools, and land purchases for future

schools, throughout the province. This has resulted in 25,000 new student spaces and 35,000 seismically safer seats at B.C. schools.

Budget 2024 includes $3.75 billion for school capital projects over the next three years, including new and expanded schools, seismic upgrades and replacements, and land purchases for future schools.

Quick Facts: “Supported to begin planning” means government is supporting the school district to

proceed with developing a business case for a new secondary school. When finalized, the business case, which will detail the scope, schedule and budget for the project, will be brought forward to government for final funding approval.

Depending on the scale of a project, a finalized business case takes eight months on average.

Following funding approval, the project proceeds to design and construction.

The event highlighted messages of hope and resilience. Keynote speaker Pastor Al Breitkreuz shared his message “The Humanity of Justice”. The Hero for Hope award was presented to Peter whose life generates hope in others because of his example of overcoming adversity. The inaugural Community Hero for Hope Award – Business was awarded to the team at Aggressive Auto Towing for hosting the Tow

Truck Toy Run for the past 6 years, bringing joy to hundreds of Angel Tree Families.

Guests enjoyed a performance by the Mountain Elementary School Choir, a Silent Auction, and a delicious luncheon prepared by Chef Reg and his team.

BCFED applauds Haida Nation Amendment Act

Rising Tide agreement will mean more certainty, stability for workers in Haida Gwaii. The BC Federation of Labour congratulated the Haida Nation and the British Columbia government as Bill 25, the Haida

Nation Recognition Amendment Act, officially became law late yesterday.

“This agreement is the result of two decades of work, and it’s a welcome step towards reconciliation in BC,”

Unit# 3 - 32700 George Ferguson Way

BC V2T 4V6

said BCFED President Sussanne Skidmore. “By recognizing Haida’s Aboriginal title throughout Haida Gwaii, this agreement helps ensure a future of opportunity and dignity for Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities alike.”

The act formally recognizes Haida Nation’s Aboriginal title throughout Haida Gwaii and enacts the Gaayhllxid • Gíihlagalgang Rising Tide Haida Title Lands Agreement.

“The Rising Tide agreement is a crucial piece of BC’s Reconciliation work. And it will mean long-needed

stability and certainty for workers and their families in Haida Gwaii,” said Skidmore. “They can count on clear, unambiguous protection of private property, and stability for the municipal and provincial services they rely on.”

That certainty is key to ensuring sustainable long-term jobs in the local economy, she added.

Earlier this month, the officers of the BC Federation of Labour voted unanimously to endorse the Haida Title Lands Agreement.

Minister’s statement on Paramedic Services Week

Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, has issued the following statement in recognition of Paramedic Services Week, May 19-25, 2024: “Paramedics in B.C. are the unsung heroes of our communities. When you are in a tough spot, they are the ones who come running, ready to help.

“This week, we want to shine a spotlight on these incredible individuals – the ones who pour their hearts and souls into providing emergency medical care in every community across B.C.”

“I am thankful to our paramedics, our dispatchers, and our leadership team at BC Emergency Health Services for their exemplary work every day. We know every day is a tough and challenging day. You faced the COVID-19 pandemic, extreme weather events, overdose publichealth emergency, and through it all, you have been exceptional, determined, committed and professional. “Paramedics are a fundamental part of our emergency health services, ensuring medical care and transportation for people in need 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“This year’s theme is help us, help you, and we are reaffirming investments into our emergency health services by expanding training programs, creating new incentives and increasing our workforce. In alignment with B.C.’s Health Human Resources Strategy and the Allied Health Strategic Plan, approximately $2 million has been channelled into the expansion of paramedic programs. “Training opportunities are aimed at helping students in the primarycare paramedic certificate program

and emergency medical responders access advanced training. By increasing the number of paramedics and by expanding the scope of emergency medical assistance that can be provided to patients, people can receive a greater standard of emergency health services when they need it.

“This is also the 50th anniversary of the BC Emergency Health Services (BCEHS) and it is an opportunity to reflect on how far we have come. Since 2017, spending in emergency health services increased by more than $475 million, reaching close to $1 billion in 2023-24. This increased spending has been enabled through targeted provincial investments in increased BCEHS staffing, training and mental-health supports, as well as investments to improve equitable access to ambulance services in B.C.

“To improve ambulance services, the Province, BCEHS and CUPE 873/ Ambulance Paramedic of BC came together, working to strengthen the workforce, while ensuring they have the support they need, add more ambulances, improve response times and better support rural and remote communities.

“Together, we are transforming BCEHS – taking action and listening to the needs of paramedics, so we can make changes that best support them, and in turn, allowing them to focus on their patients. “Today, I encourage all people across the province to join me in gratefully acknowledging the monumental contributions of paramedics and their care for people across B.C.”

B.C. provides update on oldgrowth conservation

The Province is securing a better future for B.C.’s forests and communities by taking better care of more oldgrowth forests, supporting local jobs and building a more sustainable and resilient forestry industry.

Released on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, the B.C. government’s update reports on work underway in response to the 14 recommendations made by an independent panel in a 2020 review of B.C.’s old forests. It also outlines next steps as the Province and First Nations, alongside the forestry sector, workers and communities, take action to better care for forests, provide stability for B.C.’s forestry communities, and address challenges associated with climate change and wildfires.

Key progress includes: establishing the $1-billion Tripartite Framework Agreement on Nature Conservation (the Nature Agreement); making sure forestry communities get more local jobs for every tree harvested, including by boosting made-in-B.C. wood manufacturing; and improving the work on the ground through better mapping, data and knowledge sharing.

Additionally, through Forest Landscape Plans (FLPs) the Province is ensuring local values drive decisions on the landbase, including those related to forest resilience, wildfire prevention, economic development and community well-being. Nine FLPs are underway, with more to be announced in the future. FLPs will be developed in partnership with First Nations, and through engagement with communities and people affected, local knowledge and values can be incorporated into the management of entire ecosystems.

The Province has made significant progress on the 14 recommendations from the old-growth strategic review (A New Future for Old Forests), with the understanding that it will take years to achieve the full intent of some of the recommendations. First Nations, local governments, people and businesses in B.C. will be essential partners in this work.

Further updates on progress will continue as government builds on the strides taken with First Nations partners and industry.

4 budget-friendly ideas to explore the world without leaving home

(NC) Travelling can be a thrilling adventure, but you don’t always need to leave your home to explore the world around you. If you can’t make it to your dream destination this year, here are four ideas to experience new destinations from the comfort of your own home.

Cook it up

One of the best ways to get to know a place is through its food. So, for a creative way to expand your horizons, choose a recipe from your dream locale. You may have to buy some new ingredients, but there are endless amounts of free recipes online. There’s sure to be one you can enjoy, no matter your cooking skills. Your

library may also have some fresh cookbooks for you to try out.

Fuel the fantasy

Once you’ve enjoyed your meal, maybe get cozy on the couch with a movie or television series set in another place, from a Canadian independent film to a hit series from overseas. Embracing entertainment with a serious sense of place can be transporting. Audiobooks, podcasts and local music let you experience places in an intimate way. And books offer that power too, so pore through your library’s collection for your favourite genre set in a new-to-you place.

Whether it’s a history lecture, a language lesson or an art workshop, take a virtual course for a deep dive on just about any place. Massive open online courses, known as MOOCs, are free and wide-ranging, so see what you can find. Many museums and historic sites, including many across Canada, also offer immersive virtual guided tours on their websites or through Google Arts and Culture exhibits if you can’t make it in person.

Get historical

History provides some context for why things are the way they are today and helps you understand a place better, even if you haven’t been there (yet). And it doesn’t have to be boring or expensive. For example, you can immerse yourself in a creative non-fiction option like Parks Canada’s ReCollections podcast with episodes on some of the most significant historic sites in Canada from coast to coast, such as the Fortress of Louisbourg in Nova Scotia or Dawson City, Yukon. You can find it wherever you get podcasts or at

More than 325 new belowmarket homes underway in Port Moody

Families, seniors and Indigenous people will soon have access to more than 325 new below-market rental homes with construction underway on a development in Port Moody.

“With the building of these 328 below-market homes, more people in the community will have access to homes within their reach, bringing more peace of mind and stability in their lives,” said Ravi Kahlon, B.C. Minister of Housing. “We know that the housing shortage is taking a toll on many people in Port Moody and throughout B.C., and these homes will provide relief to people so they can thrive in the community they call home.”

The Creek at 296 Angela Dr. will provide 328 below-market, affordable rental homes as part of a larger multiphase, 23-acre development coming to Port Moody called Portwood. The construction of The Creek marks the first phase of the project to proceed in partnership with Edgar Development, with more buildings containing market-rental and market housing on the way.

The Creek will consist of three sixstorey apartment buildings featuring a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom homes on a five-acre land. More than 75% of these will be two-bedroom homes that will be accessible to families. Sixty-six of these homes will also be fully accessible and 166 will be adaptable. All rental rates will be below the market rates and will be determined closer to the opening of the buildings.

“The peace of mind that comes with having a secure and stable home is invaluable,” said Ken Hardie, MP for Fleetwood-Port Kells, on behalf of Sean Fraser, federal Minister of Housing, Infrastructure and Communities. “This is why the federal government is glad to support the creation of these 328 new units, which will provide families, seniors and Indigenous Peoples in Port Moody with affordable and quality housing. Everyone deserves a safe place to call home, and through the National Housing Strategy, we are committed to making that a reality for all Canadians.”

Portwood is Port Moody's first master-planned development since 2004, which will feature amenities such as child care, parks, and walking and bike paths that will be available to the community.

The affordable-housing portion of the project is a partnership between the Province, through BC Housing, the federal government, through the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, Edgar Development, the City of Port Moody, M’akola Housing Society and the Entre Nous Femmes Housing Society.

The homes will be operated by M’akola Housing Society in partnership with Entre Nous Femmes Housing Society.

“Many people in Port Moody are struggling to find places to live that fairly match their budget and meet their needs, and we have to find

ways to build these homes as soon as possible,” said Rick Glumac, MLA for Port Moody-Coquitlam. “That's why it’s great to see that belowmarket homes were prioritized and are being built in the early phase of this development.”

Completion of The Creek is expected in late 2026. Residents will be selected through the M’akola Housing Society and Entre Nous Femmes Housing Society application process in unison with the BC Housing Registry. Supported by Edgar Development, previous residents were provided the option to relocate to existing vacant homes on the Portwood site and return to the new development when it’s complete.

This project is part of a $19-billion housing investment by the B.C. government. Since 2017, the Province has nearly 78,000 homes delivered or underway, including 389 in Port Moody.

Quick Facts: The Province, through BC Housing, is contributing a Deepening Affordability grant of

$10.6 million and an Investment in Housing Innovation grant of $2.3 million.

The federal government, through Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, is contributing $19.9 million in funding from the BC Housing Priorities Initiative and $16.4 million in forgivable loan.

Edgar Development contributed the land valued at $28.5 million to BC Housing’s Provincial Rental Housing Corporation, securing the project for affordable housing through its rezoning application to the City of Port Moody.

The City of Port Moody is contributing more than $560,000 in waived fees.

Edgar Development’s Portwood redevelopment will take place over the next 15-20 years, transforming the site into a master-planned, wellserved community with an innovative mix of housing, including affordable housing, market rental and strata, two new city parks, child care and neighbourhood retail.

Dignity and Style in Care Homes is Hair to Stay

Who doesn’t love feeling pampered and looking their best? All humans, every age, do well with self-care regimens in place. This is one reason why Cottage Worthington Pavilion, Abbotsford, is revolutionizing how care homes provide dignity and style to residents.

Research has found that a person’s appearance is integral to their mental health and even with or without mobility issues older adults benefit from personal grooming services, be that a nail trim or haircut. The new salon at Cottage Worthington offers residents much needed services, including a renewed sense of confidence, without leaving

their home a place of comfort and safety. One of the residents described how they “love the flowers on the walls and the bright and open space”.

Thanks to funding from Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation the salon is a cut above the rest in providing a positive resource for enhancing patient care. And the residents could not be more thrilled, “I like the salon, it’s really classy. Nice and bright”.

Funding for projects such as this has helped improve the hospital experience for older adults and helps enhance our capacity to provide excellence in health care for those residing in the Fraser Valley. To support projects like this one please contact Dr. Jassal directly at:

The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation raises funds for vital equipment and programs funded or endorsed by the Fraser Health Authority. They serve the communities of Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, Hope, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs.

IN LOVING MEMORY OF Davinder Singh Jassal

He settled in Vancouver in 1972, where he started to grow roots for his family. He was a devoted husband to late Amarjit Kaur Jassal and a caring father to Sukhminder Rattan, Avtar Jassal, and Harinder Jassal and a welcoming father in law to Darshan, Sanjina and Harbinder. He was an adoring and proud grandfather to Parveen, Raiya, Jiya, Priya, Asha, Esha, Aria, Kareena, and Armaan. He will be missed by many around the world.

3 Father’s Day gift ideas for every dad

(NC) It’s time to celebrate the fathers – and those who play the role of father figure, like grandads, awesome uncles and other inspiring folks – in our lives. Whether yours is the techie type, a sensitive soul or the guy who already has it all, our Father’s Day gift guide has you covered.

For the techie: A drone can be a popular gift for anyone who’s fascinated by the latest technology, loves their toys and tools, or wants to try aerial photography. It’s a rapidly growing hobby. Just know that there are important things Dad must know before flying one. Does it need to be registered? How far away must it stay from bystanders, other aircraft, emergency sites and restricted areas? Transport Canada’s drone safety webpages can answer these questions and get you and your Dad up to speed on the rules.

For the Dad who has everything

This Father’s Day, why not treat your Dad to some quality one-on-one time?

Dive into a fun DIY project together or head outdoors for a refreshing hike. And, if you encounter poison ivy or tick bites on your outdoor excursion, a stop at a nearby pharmacy can provide quick and easy relief. In Ontario, pharmacies like Rexall offer diagnosis and treatment for nearly 20 minor illnesses like these.

For the sentimental father

Lots of parents love to see their kids dressed up and looking good. So, maybe indulge them a little by getting all dolled up for your Father’s Day celebrations. To preserve the moment, consider surprising your dad with a family photograph of everyone in their finest. If you don’t have suitable attire, a quick shop at a store like Tip Top can have you owning a stylesavvy suit in no time, for less than the price of a one-time suit rental.

2024 Lincoln Navigator Reserve: King of the Heavyweight Luxury SUVs

The 2024 luxury Lincoln Navigator full-size SUV brings more signature features and standard technology for those who want only the very best. The Navigator is massive, and imposing - long, tall, and wide and just oozes class with the giant chrome grille with the illuminated centre crest. At night, the Lincoln does it party trick with it puddle lights projecting the Lincoln logo on the ground when you approach. High level luxury and technology is standard on the Navigator. However, while most large size SUVS rely on a V8, the Lincoln Navigator is powered by a technologically sophisticated Ford Ecoboost 450bhp 3.5-litre twinturbo V6 engine, mated to a 0-speed auto transmission as found in Ford’s high-performance Raptor pickup. In its highly tuned state, the V6 is more than adequate. All Canadian Navigators are equipped with all-wheel drive.

We tested a fully loaded $97,000 Navigator Reserve model equipped with a plethora of options: including the $2,500 monochrome package comprising illuminated grille, monochrome badges, and an Embrace head up display. Also added was the luxury package with perfect position seats, the 20 speaker Revel audio system, and other added options came to

$10,000, making for a heady final price of $104, 625 plus $2150 destination and delivery .

Interior wise, the Navigator offers an incredibly sumptuous cabin where no detail has been spared in the pursuit of perfection. Overhead, a panoramic sunroof lets in the light, and at night color selectable ambient lighting illuminates the cabin for glorious effect. It is a cabin, trimmed in high quality materials, with all occupant touch points covered in the most beautiful soft premium leather. The front seats are well bolstered and super comfortable with 30- way adjustment plus auto heating and cooling.

Technology wise Ford’s infotainment interface works via a 10-inch touchscreen with dedicated Lincoln graphics. It all works seamlessly, while a pushbutton gear selector frees up front the console. Safety features such as auto high-beam headlights, blind-spot detection, pre-collision assist, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection and more are courtesy of Lincoln’s Co-Pilot360. The Co-Pilot 360 suite of tech also can unlock and start the car remotely, connecting with the Lincoln Concierge system. Lincoln’s Phone as a Key system also allows owners to use their phone as a key, instead of using a traditional key fob to unlock and start the car. With all seats in place, there’s a useful 546 L trunk. Fold the second row and cargo capacity expands to

2,925 L, this increases even more when the power-folding third row is flipped down.

When just about every one of the Navigators competitors carry V8 power the Lincoln changes conventional thinking with a twinturbocharged 3.5L V6 borrowed from Ford’s high-performance F-150 Raptor pickup – with 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque it certainly does not make the Navigator a slouch. The smooth efficient 10-speed automatic transmission makes sure the Navigator never feels stressed with turbo torque available from an early 3,000 rpm. The Navigator’s driver selectable drive mode’s feature “Slippery mode ” for well - slippery conditions and ‘Excite’ offering more spirited sporty driving as the steering firms up a bit, and the transmission and throttle get more aggressive mapping. Normal mode is the default and errs on the side of providing a smooth comfortable ride. Conserve mode tempers fuel economy at the expense of performance at highway speeds.

On the highway, almost no noise enters the Navigators well insulated cabin. Not much to complain about, handling and steering is benign as to be expected so don’t expect sporty reflexes. Over most surfaces the Lincoln

rides smoothly, but with the 22- inch wheels you will feel impacts on severe rough roads and potholes. The Lincoln is best driven on the highway and wide urban streets, not the congested inner city where its size and bulk become obvious. Still, the on- board 360-degree cameras and the self- parking feature will help. The optional heavy-duty tow package enables the Navi to haul up to 3,765 kg (8,300 lb). Fuel economy is just about right, but it is no fuel sipper.

To sum up, the 2024 Lincoln Navigator Reserve SUV offers the best of everything from its dedicated concierge service that offers everything from free servicing with pick up and drop off to the premium luxurious cabin that’s cossetting in a way nothing else on the road is. The fantastic cabin and equipment levels – plus options make this luxury SUV amongst the very best you can buy. Highly recommended.

2024 Lincoln Navigator Reserve Base Price: $96,500. Price, with options as tested $107,000 plus $2,150 destination and delivery. More info at

Auto review By Veeno Dewan

New members appointed to B.C. Climate Solutions Council

New members of B.C.’s Climate Solutions Council will support the Province’s work to transition to a clean economy with good, sustainable jobs for British Columbians.

“After another year of unprecedented climate impacts and the worst wildfire season in B.C.’s history, we know we need to accelerate our work taking action on climate change,” said George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy. “We also know that B.C.’s economy is strong and diversified, not despite climate action, but because of climate action. The combined knowledge of the Climate Solutions Council is an important part of our work to find a path forward to a cleaner future for all of us. We welcome aboard our new members and appreciate our outgoing members’ contribution to our progress and transparency with British Columbians.”

The Climate Solutions Council provides advice to government on its work to meet climate goals and build a cleaner economy, mitigating climate risk and supporting sustainable economic development. New members are selected through a rigorous evaluation process, and bring a wide range of expertise from different regions and sectors. This includes First Nations, environmental organizations, industry, business, academia, labour, local government and youth.

New council members are:

Denni Clement, climate-action peer network lead for the Coastal First Nations Great Bear Initiative; Linda Coady, president and CEO, Council of Forest Industries;

Ashley Duncan, president, BC Insulators Union;

Mahmudur Fatmi, assistant professor in civil engineering, University of British Columbia Okanagan;

Matt Horne, manager of climate mitigation, City of Vancouver;

Madeleine McPherson, assistant professor in civil engineering and associate director of the Institute for Integrated Energy Systems at the University of Victoria;

Nangkilslas, Trent Moraes, deputy chief councillor, Skidegate Band Council; and

Freya Phillips, senior energy specialist at the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary.

“By reviewing CleanBC policies, we can identify effective, equitable, and efficient climate solutions,” said Nancy Olewiler, co-chair of the Climate Solutions Council. “Understanding the policies’ impacts on reducing B.C.'s greenhouse gas emissions and increasing climate resilience will help contribute to a sustainable future for people, companies and our communities across the province.”

B.C. continues to lead on climate action, with the CleanBC Roadmap to 2030, one of the strongest climate action plans In North America. The road map outlines a comprehensive strategy to reduce emissions by 40% and create jobs in the clean economy, preparing B.C. for a changing climate. Progress is published in the annual Climate Change Accountability Report.

Vaisakhi at Queensborough Middle School, New Westminster

Queensborough Middle School (QMS) in New Westminster has been a good model for Punjabi. For many years, the Punjabi classes there have been flourishing at a fast pace. This has been possible only with the support and co-operation of the school board, district administration, school administration, staff, students and parents of QMS. However, the teachers make a big difference in this regard. On behalf of Punjabi Language Education Association (PLEA) I would like to commend the teachers, especially Mr. Deep Sangra, who has made the success of the Punjabi program at QMS one of his top priorities. For many years, Mr. Sangra has made the celebration of Vaisakhi as one of his top priorities.

This year, QMS celebrated Vaisakhi and Creation of the Khalsa on Wednesday, May 15, 2024, with a great deal of enthusiasm. Since early morning, the entire school was buzzing with excitement. Students were welcoming and greeting guests at the main school entrance. Few minutes before the start time, teachers ushered in their students to the gym. Vice Principal Sukh Rai gave a brief outline of the Vaisakhi festival and creation of the Khalsa Panth in 1699 in Anandpur Sahib by the tenth and last Guru of Sikh faith, Guru Gobind Singh ji. and the huge strides the Punjabi community has made in Canada for more than 125 years. He then called upon the two student MCs, to conduct the program. The Punjabi class students did an excel-

lent job in displaying their skills and expertise in the Punjabi folk dance Bhangra and brief speeches in Punjabi and English about Vaisakhi and creation of the Khalsa. On behalf of Punjabi Language Education Association (PLEA) it was an honour for me to congratulate the students, staff and parents for putting on this celebration. Later, staff, parents and invited guests enjoyed socialization and light refreshments provided by Gurdwara Sukh Sagar and parents. QMS Principal Joun Lakakkis concluded the assembly by thanking his staff, students and parents for making the Vaisakhi celebration very enjoyable.

Incidentally, Vaisakhi, named after Vaisakh, second month of the Punjabi calendar, signifies beginning of the harvesting season in Northern India. Also, on this day in 1699 Guru Gobind Singh ji created the Khalsa Panth. Now Vaisakhi has become an international celebration as the South Asian community in general and Sikhs in particular are well settled in many countries around the globe. In Canada, to its credit, the month of April has been declared as the Sikh Heritage Month. Similarly, in the U.S. Vaisakhi Day is now known as the Sikh Heritage Day. In this context, it was great to see the students at QMS put on an impressive celebration of Vaisakhi.

Happy Vaisakhi! Balwant Sanghera, President, Punjabi Language Education Association (PLEA)

3 rising fraud trends

(NC) According to research from Royal Bank of Canada, 75 per cent of Canadians say they are more concerned about fraud than ever before, and it suggests they have good reason. With the use of new technology and an increase in fraudsters coaching their victims, criminals are employing a new level of sophistication to their scams. As awareness is the first step in reducing your risk, here are three fraud trends to look out for this year.

Impersonation scams: Criminals often pretend to be trusted sources, like government officials, bank staff, law enforcement or even a family member to trick you into providing money or confidential information. Now fraudsters are using voice cloning and computermanipulated images or videos, making impersonation scams even harder to detect. As this type of scam continues to evolve, it’s important to keep your guard up. Some experts recommend using a short and generic voicemail to deter robo-callers from capturing your name or voice and having a personal password to use with loved ones to verify you’re speaking to the right person.

Social engineering scams: These scams usually increase during times of econom-

ic challenge when people may be more vulnerable and fall for promises of easy money. They happen when fraudsters use details they may already know about you to manipulate your emotions and get you to share confidential information. That’s why it’s important to be cautious about what you share online, and never feel pressured to respond. If you receive an unsolicited call, email or text asking for money or your information, hang up or delete it.

Victim involvement in scams: In the past, third parties stole your information, made purchases or took your money. This type of fraud was easier to detect. As banks and other institutions have increased security and detection measures, criminals are using additional fraud tactics. They now coach their victims to participate in scams. After gaining their trust, fraudsters pressure, threaten or trick people into lying to loved ones or financial advisors or persuade victims to get involved in a money scheme, investment or contest. Victims unknowingly become part of scams when they authorize the transaction or activity, making these scams tougher to spot. That’s why it’s important to stay vigilant. Pause, ask questions and resist the temptation to act in the moment.
