The Tories’ Bill C-51:The National Action Day Protests

B

ill C-51 was tabled in the House of Commons toward the end of January this year. This anti-terrorism bill has come up in keeping with the Prime Minister’s announcement immediately after the two Canadian soldiers were gunned down by lone terrorists in October, 2014, and after the terrorist attack on the Charlie Hebdo office in Paris. Certainly, the federal government must come out with the most stringent possible measures to curb terrorism to ensure protection of Canadians from jihadist terrorists within as well as outside Canada. We believe that the Government is justified in bringing out such tough laws if the laws do just that and simultaneously ensure a balance between the national security and the civil rights.

Dr Hardyal Singh Aulakh

Well, the Canadian Security Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC), as we know, independently oversees the activities of CSIS. But the Committee has been lately short-staffed, and then with the implementation of C-51, it will find itself stretched beyond its limits.

As of now, CSIS is required to seek a warrant in its efforts to take action within or outside Canada, to reduce threats to national security. But, after the Bill C-51 becomes law, the CSIS, with its expanded powers, would need a warrant only when it is conducting activities that contravene the existing laws, including the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Therefore, some critics believe that, with its mandate going beyond surveillance or spying, the Defending the Bill, the Public Safety CSIS could end up wrongly penalizing and Emergency Preparedness Minister, innocent persons.

Coastal Ferries vision results in low price cap preliminary ruling The BC ferry commissioner’s preliminary ruling on coastal ferry fare price caps confirms the actions by government and BC Ferries to control costs and find efficiencies in the delivery of the ferry service are working to keep fare increases lower. Government has said consistently that tough decisions are required to ensure fares are affordable for families in the future. As a result of this work, the BC ferry commissioner is proposing price cap increases of 1.9% in each of the four years of Performance Term 4 (PT4) from 2016 to 2019, bringing fare increases in line with inflation. As outlined in the Province’s coastal ferries vision, government undertook a broad set of initiatives including:

BC launches 10-year transportation plan

T

he B.C. government today announced B.C. on the Move, a 10-year transportation plan that outlines critical investments and improvements throughout the province that will improve the daily lives of British Columbians.

improve the safety, efficiency and economics of trucking in B.C. Other highlights of B.C. on the Move: •

Partnering with First Nations on projects that support economic activity.

• This $2.5-billion plan will grow the economy, improve safety, maintain and replace aging infrastructure and support trade for B.C.’s expanding resource sectors through • Canada’s Asia-Pacific Gateway.

Improving accessibility for persons with limited mobility by upgrading rest areas.

The plan included input from an extensive engagement process in fall 2014 that included meetings with key stakeholders throughout B.C., including First Nations, local governments, chambers of commerce and port and airport authorities. Government also conducted a public survey with almost 13,000 responses.

New investments in bike lanes and trails through partnerships with local communities.

The foundation of B.C. on the Move is partnerships. Where partners are committed to sharing costs and providing resources to mutual priorities, the Province will actively pursue and invest in projects. Quote:

Canada and BC support skills training for older workers The Honourable James Moore, Minister responsible for British Columbia, on behalf of the Honourable Pierre Poilievre, Minister of Employment and Social Development, and the Honourable Shirley Bond, Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and Minister Responsible for Labour for British Columbia, announced today that up to 470 unemployed older workers will benefit from 14 skills training projects in British Columbia (B.C.) under the Targeted Initiative for Older Workers (TIOW).

British Columbians made it clear they want their highways, roads, bridges and side roads kept in good condition, which is why the plan includes more than $800 million over the next three years dedicated to existing infrastructure and almost $1 billion toward expansion of major highways and the network.

Foundation. “Shato Holdings Ltd. has been a generous and tireless champion of Delta Hospital. The support of our community is what makes this hospital work and their leadership is a tremendous example of community in action.” Fraser Health, in partnership with the Delta Hospital Foundation and the Delta Hospital Auxiliary, completed a 20 year master plan for Delta Hospital in 2012. The plan’s short term priorities (one to five years) included the expansion of diagnostic imaging and laboratory services. Shato Holdings Ltd. was founded by Peter C. Toigo in 1968. Peter C., his wife Elizabeth and their six children moved from Powell River to Tsawwassen in 1964 where much of the family still lives. The company is still family-run and is led by managing directors Ron and Peter Toigo Jr.

We want the price you pay to stay the same, or go down. That’s why we have created a model that means, for the vast majority of products, the price

In the simplest terms, under our current system, private liquor stores receive a 16% discount off the BC Liquor Store shelf price. This means that, for a $15 six-pack you’d buy

at the BC Liquor Store, a private store purchases it for $12.60. That private store then marks up that price by whatever amount it sees fit to make a profit. In the lead up to April 1, some critics are out there ‘beer mongering’, telling you that government has eliminated this 16% discount altogether and because of that, you’ll pay more at the till. This is categorically false. The new wholesale pricing model is set almost exactly at the same level as that 16% discount that private stores currently receive and applies equally to every kind of liquor retailer – including government liquor stores. BC Liquor Stores expect no significant change to product pricing on their shelves in April as a result of the move to wholesale pricing. Private stores

B.C. indexes minimum wage to provincial CPI

he B.C. government is indexing increases in the general minimum hourly wage and liquor server wage to B.C.’s Consumer Price Index (CPI), Minister for Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training, and Minister Responsible for Labour, Shirley Bond announced. The government is committed to reasonable and predictable yearly minimum wage increases linked to B.C. CPI. Going forward, from 2016 onward, the minimum wage will be determined using a formula calculated upon the percentage the B.C. Consumer Price Index (CPI) increased in the previous calendar year. In years where there is a negative CPI change, the minimum wage would stay the same.

There have likely been some new personal beginnings since the latter part of February and now you should look at how you realistically proceed with these things in the long term. It could be a chance to pursue something you were not so successful with in the past, mainly because you have more idea of commitment now.

Much can go your way and this can be a pleasant change. You need to watch trying to do too much at once though. Do not forget important priorities – it can be easier to blend these in than you first imagine. You will no longer leave something you want to do around the house. Catching up with relatives can also be on the agenda.

Rather than doing a lot of running around you should communicate with people or take care of business in other ways, which can include behind the scenes in some way. Rest will do you more good than anything else. None of this will bother others as much you might worry it could. The main thing is to keep communication going.

There is much you can learn on a personal level this week, which can include learning about yourself in some way when it comes to what you want in the long term. Any people you are dealing with are serious and committed and may want to know your plans. Start with the way you want things to operate on a daily basis.

You can enjoy your work or anything else that requires your commitment. You might need to weigh up what you can reasonably manage rather than taking on what might prove to be too much. Don’t look at things just in the moment. You need to imagine how you would handle matters if they wind up being ongoing.

It is more about other people at the moment and not necessarily knowing exactly where they are coming from. Through this you can gain realisations of what are important priorities to you because nothing has stimulated you to think about it in quite the same manner. You are laying down important foundations in life now.

Someone of importance can be impressed with your ideas, especially if you communicate them in a well-structured manner. Don’t be put off if they take a dominant approach – you are more than capable of holding your own. You can feel disconnected in some way. Utilise people you know who can recommend you.

Interactions with others can go quite well. This includes those who have some sort of authority as well. You will likely find it difficult to know exactly where they stand. It is important you know the details inside out with anything you might be dealing with. If money is involved, do not take anything for granted. Look at all angles.

Anything you are prepared to commit yourself to should fall into place easily. There is something long term about it, so bear this in mind. There will not be an easy means of escape. You need to work on establishing a balance that you will maintain with daily routines, which form a solid support in accomplishing long-term goals.

Someone else may want to learn more about your ideas or the way you think. You could be more mysterious than you realise. You need to think about yourself more than them. There is much you can enjoy in your life at the moment and it is best to keep it on your terms. You can still be working out how you want to structure life.

You have every opportunity to be strongminded when it comes to situations important to you. At the basis of this is a need for peace and harmony. To gain this you likely need to put boundaries on what can be over the top expectations of others. If you get this right to mid April you will have a good foundation in place.

Focus on the things that are stable in your life and this can give you a sense of being lucky. Involved in this is not expecting to accomplish more than you can reasonably manage on a daily basis. Taking this approach can make you realise what needs to be a priority and what you might need to let go of as a result.

Hrithik Roshan to bare it all?

Though Aamir drew a lot of flak for his nude scene in PK, it did not stop Bollywood hunk Hrithik Roshan from baring it all. Hrithink Roshan’s washboard abs are no stranger to big screen and his well sculpted body is an invitation for jealously from other male stalwarts of Bollywood. The Greek god of tinsel town will be sporting clothes only strategically covering his body parts for Ashutosh Gowariker’s magnum opus ‘Mohenjo Daro’. The opening scene of the film will apparently have Roshan flaunting all of his will toned body. Hrithik Roshan is currently shooting for the movie in Bhuj. As the name suggests this movie is set way back in time, during the Indus Valley Civilization.

Does Radhika Aptea Have Ego Issues? Radhika Apte is getting into a series of ego clashes with her B-town contemporaries. The actress who is just two films old has had a clash with Huma Qureshi, who was the other female lead in her last flick, Badlapur. Apparently, Radhika was trying to portray this image of herself as the leading lady of the movie. Another report claims

Sonakshi On A Solo Holiday? There is something very liberating about going on a solo vacation. Can you imagine anything better than chilling on white sand beaches, surrounded by pristine blue waters of the Indian Ocean? This one is definitely on everyone’s bucket list and guess what, our very own Sonakshi Sinha has gone ahead and done it all by herself. However, we can’t help wondering if Sona has tagged anyone along with her on this enviable vacation in the Maldives! She shared some gor-

geous pictures of herself and the fabulous location on Instagram, and she looks like she’s having a ball! While we want to see some more pictures of her, it is two thumbs up to the actress for going on a solo vacation! We suppose it’s a well-deserved break for Sona, who was last known to be shooting three films back to back. He is also busy shooting another romantic film directed by ad filmmaker Vaibhav Mishra which marks the debut of former beauty queen Navneet Dhillon.

Lara Dutta joins the cast of Fitoor Actress and former miss universe Lara Dutta has joined the cast of Abhishek Kapoor's Fitoor. The actor joins a strong cast in the film that star Katrina Kaif, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Rekha in the leading roles. She also tweeted about her daughter’s approval of her looks in the movie. Fitoor is an adaptation of Charles Dickens novel’ Great Expectations’ is about a love triangle involving a Kashmiri boy Noor (Aditya Roy), his lady love Firdous (Katrina Kaif) and the Begum (Rekha). The movie is running behind schedule, as it was scheduled to hit the floor last year, sources in the film unit said.

that she isn’t getting along too well with Sai Tamhankar, the other lead in her new film, Hunterrr. The buzz is that the two actresses have shared cold vibes for a while. It is believed that Sai who is a leading actress from Marathi cinema is unhappy with Radhika trying to hog all the limelight. B-town actresses being friends is just so hard to come by in this industry.

After You Sell Your Home. It’s sold!

C

ongratulations – you have sold your home. You may be wondering – what’s next? You will be packing, reorganizing, sending out change of address cards and notifying people of your move. While you are packing, remember not to pack anything that you have sold. Unless you mention items in the contract, the fixtures must remain in place. You could be in violation of the contract if these items are removed.

As a seller, you are responsible for ensuring the home is in the same condition it was at the time of closing. This means that the terms of the agreement must be upheld. If the home suffers damage after the time of closing, you must tell the purchaser. At this time, the purchaser could walk away and have the deposit returned, choose to close and receive any insurance proceeds. If the condition of the home changes prior to possession date, be sure to check with your lawyer, real estate agent and the purchaser before completing any repairs. Once the offer to purchase agreement has been signed both the buyer and the seller are under legal contract to close. If you change your mind, or decide not to sell your home for whatever reason, the buyer has the cont’d on page R3

legal right to commence legal actions. If the purchaser decides to walk away from the deal, you can claim the purchaser’s deposit or sue for damages. When you arre closing the sale of your home, you will also want to be aware of adjustments, net proceeds and possession date. The costs of these items could be substantial. Adjustments Adjustments (credits or debts regarding financial costs) will be made to settle the sale of the home. This will account for any expense incurred, (or income earned on rental properties), by yourself or the buyer, as of the day of closing. These fees could include city property taxes, school taxes, monthly condominium fees, utilities and insurance. Any expenses you have prepaid before closing day are pro-rated. The buyer will reimburse you for the period during when you no longer own the property. Expenses you might not have yet paid, but which apply to the time during



which you owned the home, are also pro-rated and reimbursed by you to the buyer. If the buyer is assuming your mortgage, adjustments will also be made - the outstanding principal, accrued interest, any funds held in a tax fund and first and last month’s rent on rental premises. Net proceeds You have agreed on a selling price. But this is not the same as your net price. You still need to consider the following items: • The buyer is typically responsible for most of the closing costs including: • legal/notarial fees for handling the sales transaction depending on jurisdiction • any disbursements or out-ofpocket expenses incurred by the lawyer or notary • property tax and utility adjustments • land transfer or “welcome” taxes cont’d on page R9

The seller has some debts to discharge before funds can be accessed. The seller is responsible for paying: • real estate commissions • the certificate of location or survey (depending on jurisdiction and offer to purchase) • legal and discharge fees (depending on your jurisdiction and/ or preference)

• outstanding adjustments owed to the buyer • outstanding municipal/school taxes or public service assessments • outstanding mortgage balance along with any associated prepayment charge or contract breakage cost for retiring your mortgage early - if you are not taking your mortgage with you and your buyer doesn’t assume it Your real estate agent, the local real estate board, your banker, lawyer or

notary can advise you of the fees you are most likely to encounter when you sell your home. The possession date On the contract, give careful attention to the details of possession date. The day you move out of your home and hand the keys to the Real Estate Professional, may not always coincide with your closing day.

to move out. You might be liable for the buyers moving costs. At the same time however, the buyers may have to move earlier than expected. Perhaps the lease has expired or they have sold they previous home with an earlier possession date. If possible, try and be accommodating. This will not only help with a smooth closing process but you will reap the benefits. Often the possession date is factored into the final selling price.

ou have tried most everything to sell your home. But it is still waiting for the right buyer. In a good market there could be a few reasons why your home has not moved as quickly as you would have hoped. When you review the price and condition of your home, the

to getting your home sold. 1. Price

Prior to listing a home, it is a good idea to obtain a market evaluation (or CMA, comparable market analysis) from two or three Real Estate Professionals. This should give you a professional opinion from three reliable sources.

ting the listing. This person could suggest that you will get $20,000 or even $30,000 more than the other agents. This is called “buying a listing.”

than the market value, to compensate for any required work. You could lose money by not having your home in top condition.

If one agent suggests a price that is significantly higher than the others, it could mean that this Real Estate Professionals is not your best choice. Each evaluation should be within a reasonable amount, compared to the others. The market does not lie. If you list your house at a value higher than the market value, you will have more difficulty selling it. Sometimes buyers perceive such a home as “market worn.” Your final selling price could be lower than if you had listed it correctly in the beginning.

The paint inside and out should be in good condition. Everything should be kept perfectly straight and orderly. A seller should walk through the house as if they are a potential buyer, being very critical and asking whether they would purchase a home in this condition.

Your house is worth $140,000. You list it for $150,000. It is less likely buyers looking for $140,000 homes will view your home. It is not within their price range. Buyers looking for $150,000 homes will compare your homes to others that are truly in this price range. Houses priced correctly are more likely to sell. Sometimes, an agent will show an overpriced home for comparison when they want to sell listings that are reasonably priced. 2. Condition A buyer does not see a home the same way a seller does. As many homeowners have grown accustomed to their home along with developing an emotional attachment, many items may be overlooked. What looks good to one person does not look the same to another – especially a buyer. Most buyers are looking for a near perfect home. This means clean, in good condition mechanically and structurally, and in a pleasing decorating style. The ideal situation would be for the buyer to move into a home, without having to do any work, including cleaning the carpet. When a buyer looks at a home, they try to imagine themselves living in the home. If any work needs to be done they are less likely to make an offer, when compared to another home that is in

A Real Estate Professional can assist you in this task. They can take an unbiased look at your home and suggest ways to improve your home and most importantly, increase your total profit and thats the bottom line. When your home is in its “best” condition, you are more likely to receive the best price. While it may seem a lot of work, repairing these items will benefit you in the pocketbook. 3. The listing agent The reputation and ethics of your Real Estate Professional is especially important. He or she could create big problems if he or she is difficult to get along with. People do not like to work with someone who has a bad attitude or a condescending nature. Real Estate Professionals who are rude or arrogant, will have far fewer showings than a cooperative and enthusiastic agent. Before you hire an agent, be sure to check out his or her reputation. Ask for references. Phone the Real Estate Board. It is worth spending the time interviewing an agent to ensure you will get the results you are looking for. Be sure to read the report, “26 Questions to Ask A Real Estate Professional” included in the Getting Ready section. 4. Location The third reason a house may not sell quickly in a good market is location. Undesirable schools, higher crime rate, untidy neighbours, busy roads and close proximity to noise, could cont’d on page R12

contribute to a delay in selling. The only compensation available for the location factor is a lower price. An owner may have to reduce the price so the home compares to others in more desirable areas. Your Real Estate Professional, trained in these kinds of situations, can recommend a good strategy to overcome a bad location. 5. Marketing plan When the factors of price, condition, location and agent are correct, the other factor is marketing plan. It takes more than simply putting a sign on your lawn to sell a home, place your home on the MLS® System, run an ad and then sit back and wait for a buyer to arrive. If your Real Estate Professional is doing his job correctly, an aggressive marketing plan should accompany your listing agreement. If the Real Estate Professional does not perform as outlined in this document, you can cancel. Your Real Estate Professional must make effective use of

the latest technology, plus maximizing industry and professional contacts, to ensure your home is placed before the most buyers. When all the other factors are accurate, the only thing left in a good market is the marketing plan. This also includes showings of your home, proper qualification of buyers, handling details of the sale and anything else that could affect the sale of your home. All of these details are important. They could affect your bottom line. Details are important There is however one thing you may not be able to overcome – a bad market. In this situation, there are many factors beyond your control. A good Real Estate Professional, however, can offer some ideas and suggestions when faced with one. For the most part bad markets are rare. In most cases, in a good market, when price, condition, your Real Estate Professionals, location and the marketing plan are established your home will sell quickly and at the best price.
