THE TRADER EXPRESS, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012

Cheers to the volunteers who come to Creighton Lodge each and every day! You are all fantastic and we are so grateful for you all! Cheers to the events co-ordinator for bringing Theory of a Deadman to the city!

Cheers to the City for the new stop signs by the Co-op grocery store. People don’t abide by the rules of the road when it comes to uncontrolled intersections. Cheers to the Butterfly bus driver who has gone above and beyond for my daycare kids! Appreciate you making my life easier! Thank you C.B! Cheers to all the well-behaved children and teenagers on Halloween night. It was refreshing to hear of no incidents from Oct. 31.

Jeers for poor planning of the paving of the Spectra Place parking lot. Once again the visitors to our city and the users of the facility have to deal with a mess and park who knows where before they can even enter the facility. Maybe better planning should be put into place. Hopefully new city officials can correct these types of errors.

Jeers to the people who are travelling west on Fourth Street and think the speed limit increases to 80 km/h at the A&W. There are still homes on that last stretch people. The speed limit changes in the valley, still only 50 until then. Jeers to moustaches. It may be for a good cause, but those things are creepy and don’t look very good on most men.

Cheers to all the men who are taking part in Movember. It’s for a great cause.

Send your Cheer or Jeer to jbaker@estevanmercury.ca or send us a message on the Mercury’s Facebook page

John Humble was a dispatcher in the Air Force during the Second World War and served in Italy, dropping supplies to allies in Europe.

Local veteran tells of wartime in Italy John Humble considers himself one of the lucky ones. “We were right up the coast in northern Italy,� he recalled, noting his flight crew had crossed the eastern coast and were flying over the Adriatic Sea. “We just made our dogleg going south and the motor ran away. The engineer couldn’t get back quick enough to shut the motor off. He was coming back to shut the gas off and the smoke hit him, and then the skipper hollered, ‘Parachutes!’� Humble fought for Canada as a dispatcher during the Second World War. He knew a lot of people who didn’t come back from their service in Europe, and he saw a lot of people who returned as changed men. He is happy that he can share his experience. “I can talk about it,� he said. “Some guys can’t. Some guys couldn’t sleep at night.� Humble is from north of Oxbow, but the 90-year-old now resides at Creighton Lodge in Estevan. He was 20 in 1942 when he received a call to arms, requesting that he join up for the war effort. He noted he was interested in joining to become a pilot, but his father, who fought in the First World War, told him to wait for his call. “I always bellyached about joining, but my dad said ‘you wait ’til you get

your call, you wait ’til you get your call.’ So I did, and I got out of school in June and I joined up Sept. 10.� Humble’s first choice was the air force, but after he got in there, he found himself going where he was told. “I joined up with the Air Force because otherwise I would be in the Army,� he said. “I thought if I got my Grade 11, I could be a pilot, but it wasn’t that way. You went where they sent you. I wanted to be a pilot but didn’t get there.� He was trained as a gunner and ended up as a dispatcher in the Royal Canadian Air Force, flying with a crew of seven and taking supplies to Allies in over Europe. He first headed to Brandon to train, before being posted to Yorkton and then Montreal. He eventually went to England before heading on to Italy in 1945, stationed north of Brindisi. He completed about 26 drops during the war, which would be done at night. People on the ground would light flares and his flight crew navigated there for the drop of supplies. “We were dropping supplies in Yugoslavia, Albania and northern Italy to the partisans in behind enemy lines.� They were delivering weapons and ammunition as well as people, who would parachute from the plane.

Humble described one particular flight that ended in disaster after the motor quit. They were set to drop several Italians as well as an American reporter in northern Italy. After the motor gave out, his skipper shouted for everyone to grab their parachutes. “I got out and the rear gunner got out and opened the wells up. I was sitting there waiting and there was sea below me,� he said. “I was hoping we’d be over land. I was sitting there hanging on to my parachute. The rear gunner came out of his turret and said, ‘Jesus, we gotta jump.’ I had soot all over my knees. I looked back and could see the smoke coming down. It could hit me, or I could jump out.� Humble jumped. “I don’t remember jumping out of there. You get so damn scared, you black out. I don’t even remember going out of the hold.� He remembers receiving a crack on his head when he landed in the water. He floated in the sea for about a half hour before an American ship spotted the battery light on his side. He doesn’t know if the rear gunner was ever found. The Americans took him to Corsica, where he spent a week drinking coffee and recovering. He eventually made it back to Brindisi and said his flight lieutenant encouraged

him to get back in the air, but it wasn’t easy for Humble. He said he regained his “nerve� and continued to work as a dispatcher. The war didn’t last much longer after that point. When surrender was declared, Humble was sent to England for about a month before getting back on the sea and shipping home. Upon returning to Canada following the war, he came back to Saskatchewan and his family near Oxbow. He started farming, crops first and then cattle. He worked on the farm until 1982 when he encountered health problems. He said he knew lots of men during the war who didn’t come back the way he did. Some of them were people he knew from the Oxbow area. Humble was one of the lucky ones.

Perspective

Page 4

The bumpy road to 270 For 12 hours there are exit polls, projections, a concession speech, a victory speech and about five minutes after that both sides start yelling at each other again. This is the world of American politics. This past week our southerly neighbours re-elected their president in a race that was incredibly close. For any New Yorkers still without power, they found out who the president-elect was by checking out the colour change on the Empire State Building. For me, the night started with people analyzing the president’s tears. Apparently he used one finger to wipe away a tear three times during his final rally speech before people hit the polls. Whether or not that affected anybody’s vote is unclear because it wasn’t part of the questions asked during the exit polls. What could they have asked that was more important? Election night becomes a mindless numbers game. They even look at vote tallies from the previous two elections Numbers make my head hurt. The calls they make and scenarios they plan out are similar to the explanations of how a CFL post-season can wind up when there are tight races in the final week of the season. If Obama wins Colorado, Ohio and

Jordan Baker Thoughts From My Fingers New Hampshire, he’s got this thing wrapped, but only if Romney doesn’t win both Florida and North Carolina. If that happens, Obama has to take Virginia. Now if Romney doesn’t win Florida, but takes Ohio instead, Obama is going to be up to ears in trouble. He’s going to have to win both Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The scenarios are finite but it doesn’t seem that way. All night the analysts were saying that Romney had to win Ohio, Virginia and Florida. Without them, the presidency was out of his finely manicured reach. He lost them all. If he won them all, things would have been different, but not that different because it still would have made no difference in electing the winner. Sure those states would be nice to have. He lost by one or two points in each of those three swing states, but it wouldn’t be enough. It didn’t matter how much breath was wasted explaining the

possibility behind those three states. They decided nothing. The real decider is California with their 55 electoral votes. That’s the money state for any presidential hopeful whether it’s staunchly Democrat or not. There are so many electoral votes in that state, it’s like the lightning round in a game show that awards enough points to make all the previous rounds superfluous. Minutes after everyone but Mitt Romney agreed that Obama was the proven winner, the heads got to it, arguing about what the election means and what the two parties must do. Everyone agreed both parties must work together, as they always have to. Democrats said it meant Republicans had to take a step toward the left, while Republicans said the opposite, of course. They do need to both put inflammatory language aside and try to do what’s best for the people who elect and pay them. At the end of the night, Obama did what he does best, make a speech. He certainly topped Romney on best word of the night with “shirk,” but while the Americans probably made the best choice last night, they still have an incredible uphill battle ahead of them.

Who should own farmland? This is a question that will increasingly be asked as we move forward, and it is a question with an unclear answer. There is, of course, a feeling among many that we should keep farmland owned by our neighbours as much as possible. It would be nice if farmland were owned by those who will till the soil to grow crops, but that is no longer reasonable. Farming is a multi-million dollar business these days and is increasingly one where the investment is beyond neighbouring farmers. Today, even the so-called family farms are often corporate entities encompassing fathers, brothers, sons and other family members who work collectively to manage the scale of operation we now see as average farms. But the question that remains is what happens as ever larger farms come on the market? Neighbouring farmers may no longer have the capacity to simply amalgamate their farms with others in the area through a buy-out. In Saskatchewan, for a very long time, farmland needed to be owned by residents of the province.

Calvin Daniels Trader Agriculture Columnist It was a strange precept as part of a country where, you would assume any Canadian’s name on the title, would be seen as appropriate. Those rules have been relaxed, but there are still rules governing offshore ownership of farmland. The question is how inappropriate is the idea of someone in Europe or the Far East owning land, which is then tilled by others? It should always be remembered this country was formed via the efforts of immigrants. Often those immigrants would have no doubt accessed financial support from relatives, or friends in their country of origin, to help expand farm operations. In this era, we are seeing a new influx of immigration into Canada, including to the Prairie Provinces. Often those immigrants have access to money, and land is a good investment. That may not mean they want to ride

a tractor or haul grain to the elevator themselves, but they may well see land as a viable investment over the long term. It may not be the farm industry we most want to see, but it could be the best way for farmers today to realize the best returns when they seek to retire and put their land for sale. When one decides it is time to retire, they are looking to ensure they have the funds to enjoy retirement and to help the next generation of their family. It matters not whether the cheque for the farm comes from someone down the road or half a world away. The answer to farmland ownership is a twofold one. On the one hand, it is a case of farmers releasing the greatest possible returns when retiring. But there is also the issue of having control of a resource that is perhaps the most critical to a country’s long-term viability since it is the source of food production. Even in a world of free trade, maintaining local control of such a key resource is a compelling argument to make. The debate is one that remains to be defined as the face of agriculture continues to evolve.

Tea party Tonaya Marr Maybe It’s Just Me I promised that as I grew up I’d try to learn to appreciate coffee. Since turning 21 a month ago, I’ve actually consumed a record number of cups of coffee. And once I get past the first couple of sips, I can usually drink the whole cup and I usually enjoy it. Unfortunately, coffee makes me feel awful once the effects of the caffeine have worn off. Turns out I’m just one of those people who aren’t great with caffeine. It’s a sad thing, but I’m coming to terms with it. Fortunately, I’ve got tea to get me through. I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this, but I’m crazy about tea. I drink tea like crazy, but not boring tea. Oh no, definitely no plain-Jane green tea for me. My current favourite tea is a loose tea from Cuppa Tea in Regina called “chocolate coconut tea.� It’s as fantastic as it sounds. I also really like peppermint tea and on occasion, chai tea, which was my favourite in high school but leaves such a strong aftertaste that it’s not really a great idea when I don’t have a toothbrush nearby. Want to know a few cool things about tea? Well I’ll tell you. I did a casual Google search and came up with the top eight health benefits of the beverage courtesy of Canadian Living. Here are a couple of the best ones. 1) Stronger immune system. Want to beat that winter cold? Keep your body strong and healthy? Apparently tea is a great health-booster. To be honest, I have yet to see this effect, but I’m hoping it will kick in soon. 2) Healthier heart. As far as I can tell, everyone has a heart and it’s important in all aspects of life. So, keeping your heart healthy seems like a grand idea. And Canadian Living says that drinking green tea is good for your heart because it’s packed full of antioxidants and those are awesome for you. Of course, I don’t like green tea, so I’m experiencing none of these benefits.

3) Prevents aging. Yes! It’s like the philosopher’s stone in Harry Potter. Apparently the antioxidants combined with vitamin E are the perfect couple to keep you young. Since I’m never going to Hogwarts, and I’ll never have a philosopher’s stone, drinking tea seems like a good idea to me. So clearly tea is a great thing. Of course, green tea is the best of them all, and my least favourite. But for those of you who don’t drink tea, who think it’s a drink limited only to grandmas, think again! Tonaya Marr is currently drinking an “autumn fog,� which is essentially London fog and almond syrup. It’s not that good. Don’t get one. You can reach Tonaya by e-mail at tonaya. marr@gmail.com or on Twitter @TonayaMarr. Belated birthday wishes can also be sent to those accounts.

Should Saskatchewan lower the drinking age from 19 to 18?

He She He She Said

The governing Saskatchewan Party has decided to look closely at the legal drinking age of 19 in the province, which is one year later than neighbouring Alberta and Manitoba. There is still quite a bit of taboo surrounding alcohol. Alcohol isn’t some righteous product that everyone deserves access to, but it also isn’t something that should be looked down upon as dirty. One example that comes to mind is a complaint after Spectra Place opened in Estevan that drinks could be carried anywhere. While alcohol had to be consumed in a specific corner of the Civic, the rules became a little more lax with the opening of the new rink, and a cold brew could be consumed from any seat. The complaint was a little misplaced, as it suggested that anyone who was going to have a drink would act like a slobbering drunk and now they would be acting like a fool. There is no beer to be seen in the local movie theatre, but other theatres are beginning to serve drinks with a strict limit of one or two per customer. There is a need to ensure places that are welcome to children and families aren’t being treated the same as a bar. But just because a place is allowed to sell liquor doesn’t mean it’s going to be a den of drunks and debauchery. The drinking age is somewhat arbitrary anyway. Somewhere along the line, it was decided 19 was it. Just like somebody somewhere thought 18 was a good age to give people the right to vote. I’ve never heard a good reason for people not being allowed to vote at say 16. In Ontario, you don’t start to drive until 16 and in Saskatchewan it’s 15. Changing the drinking age from 19 to 18 or 17 or 20, isn’t going to have a big impact on many people’s lives. Whenever people drink they need to do it responsibly. Some 16-year-olds can handle that privilege and some 60-year-olds can’t. It’s really up to them if they feel like they can handle that responsibility. The government just can’t speak for everybody on this one. – Jordan Baker

Honestly, I’m OK with this idea, despite that fact that I waited until I was 19 to drink in this province. Why doesn’t Canada just have one drinking age, like the United States? What is the purpose of this every-other-province mentality? The only problem I see with lowering the drinking age is that high school students will be able to get into bars if they have early birthdays. My youngest sister will turn 18 in January of her Grade 12 year, which means she’ll be able to go to the bar during her lunch break. This is weird to me, since I didn’t turn 19 until my second year of university. Plus, she’ll be going to the same bars as her teachers. I imagine it would be strange to order a drink at Boston Pizza and run into your science teacher. I still find it weird running into the teachers whose classes I took in high school, and I graduated in 2009. Realistically, though, many of the students who would go to bars are already drinking before turning 19. I will confess that I drank alcohol before being legal in Saskatchewan. One nice thing about these kids being able to legally drink at 18 is they won’t be trying to convince creeping, older individuals to buy their beer. They’ll just ask the kids in their math class who have early birthdays. There are other provinces in Canada that have an 18-year-old drinking age and it seems to work for them. Saskatchewan might as well cash in on that teenage money. And it’s not like teens aren’t drinking illegally regardless. I’m in favour of the change – Tonaya Marr

Discover spaghetti squash

When you look over the colorful choices of squash in various goofy shapes and sizes at your market this week, tell your kids to snoop carefully to find an extra-fun variety you may have forgotten about or never tried -- spaghetti squash! The oblong, lightyellow squash, which is approximately 8-10 inches in length, is packed with healthy nutrients, is low in calories, high in fiber and, best of all, has a super kid appeal because there’s a surprise inside. To the delight of your entire family, you’ll discover that once baked, the flesh of the squash comes out in long strands that look like noodles. Its buttery, mild and slightly sweet flavor is ideally suited to be topped with tomato sauce and grated Parmesan mimicking a bowl of

traditional spaghetti. On another occasion, serve it as a tasty side dish tossed with pesto, a garlic-flavored herb butter or mixed vegetables and feta cheese. And when you prepare a roast, set the sliced meat and juices over the “noodles� for a robust weekend meal. Here are four easy steps for preparing spaghetti squash, with a few tips tossed in to make easier work when handling it. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash the outside of a 2 1/2 to 3 pound spaghetti squash and pat dry. Cut in half lengthwise. Like most varieties of winter squash, it can be difficult to cut through the hard shell. I pierce the squash in several places with the tip of a knife and put it in the microwave for 2-3 minutes or more depending on its size to soften it a bit. Let it rest for a few minutes and slice in half with a sharp knife. 2. Scoop out the seeds. A melon baller and small ice-cream scoop are easyto-handle kitchen tools for school-age kids to use if they are assisting you with

this step. 3. Place the squash halves cut side down on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray or lined with parchment paper. Bake for an hour or until easily pierced with a fork. Cool for 15 minutes. 4. Scoop out insides with a fork to remove the noodle-like strands. Place in a serving bowl or on a small platter. Top with preferred toppings or combine with butter, seasonings or cooked vegetables. Serves 3-4. *** Donna Erickson’s award-winning series “Donna’s Day� is airing on public television nationwide.

Lieutenant June Bobolo of the Estevan Salvation Army places items in the local food bank. The bank is well stocked for the coming holiday season, and there are further food drives planned in December.

Salvation Army the cornerstone of a community Christmas The Christmas season is around the corner and the Salvation Army has many ways for everyone to give something back to the community again this year. Lieutenant Brian Bobolo of the Estevan Salvation Army noted the local food bank is well stocked at the moment thanks to recent food drives in the city. “We’ve had a couple of food drives that people have done,� said Bobolo, noting the Estevan Comprehensive School did one on Halloween night, collecting about 500 pounds. “That’s a really great thing and really helpful for us.� He said they are about 80 per cent stocked going into Christmas, which is

where he would like to be. Bobolo noted they require greater donations around Christmas because, on top of what is usually made available through the food bank, they give out more with their Christmas hampers. He said they want to ensure everybody is able to have a good meal over the holidays. The Salvation Army uses some of their funds to go toward turkeys and other traditional Christmas foods that aren’t typically in stock. “Christmas will put a bit of a drain on the food bank, so we’ll be looking for the new year and maybe a few food drives for the winter, but we’ll

get through Christmas for sure,� Bobolo said. The Salvation Army will receive a portion of the proceeds from the Huron Carole concert and a food drive will be held at the Estevan Bruins game on Dec. 7. The Kettle Campaign will kick off on Nov. 24, running straight to Dec. 24. This year’s goal for the campaign is $30,000. “All those funds go to all our family service ministries: the food bank, the camping ministry we send kids to in the summer and some of the money will go to the Out of the Cold program that we’re doing in

partnership with St. Paul’s United Church. Some of the funds will be saved for emergency relief,� he added. The Kettle Campaign is the Salvation Army’s major fundraiser of the year, and Bobolo said it’s great because there are no administrative costs. “One hundred per cent of it stays in the community.� He noted they are still working on plans for the Nov. 24 kickoff, but in the past it has been held at the Estevan Shoppers Mall. The Angel Tree will be up again at Walmart from Dec. 3 to 15, allow-

ing people to purchase gifts for children who may not receive them this year. “Customers come by and pick a little angel card off the tree,� said Bobolo. “There is information on the card for what child they buy for, so there is the age and gender of the child. People pick up the card, they walk into the store and buy something and take the angel card and the purchase back to the tree.� At the end of each day, the gifts are collected and taken to the toy store. The toy store will be held on Dec. 20 and 21, and that’s when the children will come in to receive their

gifts. The store has been held at the Anglican Church but due to some renovations it will be moved this year. The location has yet to be determined. The Salvation Army will also accept donations when the Holiday Train rolls through town, stopping in North Portal and then Estevan on Dec. 17. “It’s all for the community, right? The food bank belongs to the community. We believe nobody should go hungry at Christmas and nobody should go cold throughout winter,� Bobolo said. “That’s what all these drives are all about.�

Our Past Nov 8, 1989 Remembrance Day is closing in and that means it’s time to pin on a poppy to honour Canada war dead. Estevan Royal Canadian Legion Ladies’ Auxiliary president Yvonne Browne got a chance to stick one on her husband Wayne last Saturday at the Estevan Shoppers Mall to commemorate the occasion.

Quebec cold to economic benefit of gas, drilling It goes against every fibre of my being to be on the same side as Lucien Bouchard for anything, but an Oct. 23 report in the Financial Post almost has me rooting for the guy in his current efforts. Bouchard, former No. 1 separatist in Ottawa and Quebec, and former premier, is trying to push the province to accept natural gas and oil development. He’s the head of the Quebec Oil and Gas Association, if you can believe it. It’s a pretty tough slog. On that same day, there were 389 active drilling rigs in Western Canada, and just one east of the Manitoba/Ontario border (not counting offshore rigs). Surprisingly, that one rig was in Quebec. I wonder if they had armed guards protecting it. It’s not like Quebec doesn’t have oil or gas. Apparently it has quite a bit of gas. But it’s that shale gas, you know, the stuff that requires fracking. And heaven forbid one should frack in Quebec. The world would come to an end. You see, in La Belle Province, it’s perfectly fine to dam and flood every large river system imaginable in the north for the purposes of harvesting energy. You can profoundly alter entire ecosystems, displace native

Brian Zinchuk From the Top of the Pile people, and that’s okay. But drilling a seven-inch well not on your life, pal. Steve Jobs was said to have a “reality distortion field” about him. It seems to have enraptured Quebec. Along the banks of the St. Lawrence, people don’t need to know where natural gas comes from, as long as it heats their homes. They don’t need to bother with where gasoline comes from, as long as it gets pumped into their gas tanks. This is the same distortion field that had students banging pots and pans in the streets over tuition increases that were lower than the cost of two or three textbooks. These people also seem to think daycare only costs $7 a day per kid. Well, it does, when the province gets huge equalization transfer payments from the oil and gas producing provinces. I’m not joking when I say a drilling rig could find itself surrounded by pot-banging protesters. It would be fun keeping them off the lease. A while back I got to talk to some seismic survey guys who worked in Quebec. Not much of that happening these days,

I would gather. There’s a simple truth I’ve discovered in covering Saskatchewan’s oilpatch. Towns in the patch have every house occupied, either by renters or owners. Labour is in short supply. Businesses are growing. Outside of these areas, rural Saskatchewan is doing better than it was a few years ago, but it’s nowhere near the level of economic growth. I don’t know rural Quebec, but for a province with a stagnant economy, any help should be welcomed, you would think. Except that it’s not. Most jurisdictions would welcome the influx of jobs and industry, especially when times are tough. But why do that when you can have the supposedly dirty work happen in Western Canada and still get the money sent to you via equalization? Maybe if Canada seriously rejigs its equalization formula, Quebec will realize it can have an oil and gas industry, and in fact, may need it. Until then, they’re getting the milk for free as it were, so they can turn up their noses as much as they like. Brian Zinchuk is editor of Pipeline News.

Further problems for XL Foods plant National TORONTO - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has denied any responsibility for an incident in which passengers were kicked off two public transit buses so his high school football team could catch a ride. Ford, who coaches the team, says he did not issue any orders to the Toronto police or the Toronto Transit Commission to have the buses emptied during afternoon rush hour on Thursday. The buses were abruptly rerouted after police requested the vehicles when the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football game ended early. Ford told reporters Monday that he was assisting police when he made a followup call to the TTC when the bus failed to arrive after 20 minutes. A frustrated Ford said that he was being unfairly blamed for the incident when it â&#x20AC;&#x153;wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t my callâ&#x20AC;? for the buses to be ordered in the first place. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unclear what prompted the call but Ford said police had safety concerns after a confrontation on the field ended the game. *** BROOKS, Alta. - Trouble continues for an Alberta meat plant as it tries to resume normal processing under the watchful eye of federal food safety inspectors. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says on its website that its staff observed a number of problems last week at XL Foods. They included meat areas that werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t adequately cleaned and water sanitizer that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t maintained at a high enough temperature. It says inspectors also noted there was condensation on pipes as well as no sanitizing chemical in mats used for cleaning employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; boots. The CFIAsays it ordered the plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s managers to take corrective action, which included sending potentially-contaminated meat for rendering. The plant in Brooks was

closed Sept. 27 due to E. coli contaminated meat that led to a massive recall. Workers began slaughtering cattle Oct. 29 at the plant but there has been no word yet on when the beef can be sold to retailers or consumers. *** NEW DELHI - Prime Minister Stephen Harper came to the Indian capital on Monday with the message that Canada is prepared to talk serious business, but his hosts donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear to be as ready to sign off on freer trade yet. Three important agreements â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a foreign investment protection deal, an economic partnership or free-trade pact, and the conditions for the sale of Canadian uranium to India â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are still stuck in negotiations years after talks began. A series of lesser announcements, including a social security deal that would free businesses from both countries from double paying for employee pensions and benefits, will be rolled out over the course of the week. Harper met a small group of Canadian businesspeople at a downtown hotel, and spoke glowingly about the prospects of future trade and investment between the two nations. This is the second time in three years heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visited the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second most-populous country and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the longest trip heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken to any single country since he became prime minister. QUEBEC - The Parti Quebecois government has tabled a bill that would set the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s election date as the last Monday in September every four years. Bill 3 was tabled today in the legislature by Bernard Drainville, the minister for democratic institutions, and fullfills a campaign promise by the PQ in the last election. The PQ wants to limit the discretionary power of a premier to hold general elections when it would be advantageous for a political party.

If the bill is passed, Quebec would join eight other provinces and the federal government in having some form of fixed election dates. The Harper Conservatives introduced fixed dates in their early days in office but, in the unpredictable climate of a minority Parliament, they ignored their own law and called an election in late 2008. With Quebec embroiled in corruption scandals, the PQ has now dedicated its first three pieces of legislation to measures related to clean, transparent government. If passed, its first bill would tighten the public tendering process and its second bill would nearly cancel political donations by setting a $100 limit. The provincial Liberals oppose the PQ bill. *** OTTAWA - A summary of a recent national meeting in Regina says federal ministers got an earful from the provinces over lack of money for justice programs. It says provincial and territorial ministers responsible for justice and public safety raised concerns about funding cuts and a lack of long-term cash commitments. They singled out the Youth Justice Services Funding Program and the Aboriginal Justice Strategy. Ministers also asked for more money for criminal legal aid, police recruitment and First Nations policing. In addition, they requested more notice and consultation about the coming into force of federal crime bills. The meeting wrapped up last Thursday but the summary was not issued until late Tuesday as many eyes turned to the U.S. election results. International MOSCOW - Russian President Vladimir Putin fired the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defence minister on Tuesday, two weeks after a criminal probe was opened into alleged fraud in the selloff of military assets. Putin made the an-

nouncement of Anatoly Serdyukovâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dismissal in a meeting with Moscow regional governor Sergei Shoigu, whom he appointed as the new minister. Putinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments appeared to connect the decision to a probe announced by the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top investigative agency last month into the sale of assets, including real estate, at prices far below market value. The Investigative Committee says the state suffered damages of 3 billion rubles ($95 million). Putin did not give specifics in his televised remarks, but said he made the decision â&#x20AC;&#x153;in order to create terms for the objective investigation of all questionsâ&#x20AC;? involving the ministry. Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s military establishment has been haunted by corruption accusations for years and several top military officials have been convicted of embezzlement. *** LONDON - A British lawmaker is swapping the political jungle for theAustralian rainforest and becoming a contestant on a reality TV show. Conservative legislator Nadine Dorries is facing criticism for taking part in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here,â&#x20AC;? which strands C-list celebrities in the Australian wilderness and subjects them to trials involving assorted creepy-crawlies. Dorries was criticized Tuesday for taking up to a month off from her parliamentary duties. Former Conservative legislator Harry Greenway called the decision â&#x20AC;&#x153;outrageous.â&#x20AC;? In 2006, lawmaker George Galloway appeared on the TV show â&#x20AC;&#x153;Celebrity Big Brotherâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and was widely mocked for escapades that included lapping imaginary milk while pretending to be a cat. Dorries is an outspoken backbencher, best known for her prolific blogging and anti-

$GYDQFHG6OHHS7HFKQRORJ\

abortion stance. *** JOHANNESBURG New SouthAfrican banknotes featuring the image of former president and anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela are going into circulation. Reserve Bank Governor Gill Marcus made the first purchase using the new rand notes at a small shop in Pretoria on Tuesday. She says the country tries to upgrade its notes every seven years for security reasons as technologies change. The new 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 rand banknotes feature Mandelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s image on one side and the other side maintains the Big Five animals already on the bills. Marcus said Mandela was shown the new banknotes and that he was delighted. *** WASHINGTON - U.S. President Barack Obama begins his second term today, looking to make good on his election-night pledge to move the country forward and unite Americans following a gruelling and divisive election campaign. In a rousing victory speech early Wednesday, the president made an appeal to Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better angels, but insisted that the country was â&#x20AC;&#x153;not as divided as our politics suggest.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We remain more than a collection of red states and blue states,â&#x20AC;? Obama said in a speech that was redolent with the soaring rhetorical flourishes that were standard issue during his historic 2008 run for the presidency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are the United States of America.â&#x20AC;? The president added heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never been more hopeful about the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future despite the profound partisan and demographic divides that were starkly exposed throughout his election battle against Republican Mitt Romney. Obama handily won the votes of women, young Americans, African-Ameri-

Sert

a Eg

cans and Hispanics on Tuesday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in fact, the president got almost 70 per cent of the Latino vote, the fastest growing demographic in the United States. In Pennsylvania, the high turnout of African-American voters â&#x20AC;&#x201D; reportedly even higher than it was in 2008 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was thought to have played a critical role in the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory there. *** Maine and Maryland became the first states to approve same-sex marriage by popular vote, while Washington state and Colorado set up a showdown with federal authorities by legalizing recreational use of marijuana. The outcomes for those ballot measures Tuesday were a milestone for persistent but often thwarted advocacy groups and activists who for decades have pressed the causes of gay rights and drug decriminalization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today the state of Washington looked at 70 years of marijuana prohibition and said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for a new approach,â&#x20AC;? said Alison Holcomb, manager of the campaign that won passage of Initiative 502 in Washington state. Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat who opposed legalization, was less enthused. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Federal law still says marijuana is an illegal drug, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t break out the Cheetos or gold fish too quickly,â&#x20AC;? he said. The results in Maine and Maryland broke a 32-state streak, dating to 1998, in which gay marriage had been rebuffed by every state that voted on it. They will become the seventh and eighth states to allow same-sex couples to marry. In Massachusetts, where assisted suicide was on the ballot, supporters of a question legalizing physicianassisted suicide for the terminally ill conceded defeat Wednesday morning, even though the vote was too close to call.

THE TRADER EXPRESS, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012

Now, the real curling pressure begins In a little more than 12 months from now, the best curlers in Canada will gather in Winnipeg with more than cash on the line, more prestige than a Brier title or more legacy-building honour than a world championship. On the line is something that has become the No. 1 prize in curling - a chance at Olympic gold. Canada being the curling capital of the world brings extreme pressure to whichever two teams win the Olympic Trials and head off to Sochi, Russia in February 2014 with simple instructions: Win gold. As this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curling season swings into high gear, the focus of all competitive curlers will be to gain enough points to be included in the elite field in Winnipeg Dec. 1-8, 2013. How elite? Only eight menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and eight womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teams will qualify. All the usual suspects, and a few fresh names, will be in the running. The obvious menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contenders are Albertaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two Kevins Koe and Martin, Manitobaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike McEwen and Jeff

Bruce Penton Sports Columnist Stoughton, and Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Glenn Howard. Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best hope in past years, Pat Simmons, gave up trying to beat the big boys and joined Koeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team last year as third when Blake McDonald retired. A couple of sleepers on the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side include Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Epping, Manitobaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rob Fowler and Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steven Laycock, who was part of Simmonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team until his skipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure, and now skips his own team that has had a little bit of success on the World Curling Tour circuit. On the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side, Cheryl Bernard was Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Olympic rep in 2010 at Vancouver and hopes to repeat. Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg is missing part of this season due to motherhood, but vows to be ready

for the Trials. Saskatchewan has two top contenders Stefanie Lawton and Amber Holland - while B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kelly Scott has a world title on her resume. Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sherry Middaugh, a good olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Saskatchewan girl who moved east to marry Wayne Middaugh, is having a super year on the cash circuit. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a competitive curler, earning a berth in the Brier or Scotties in 2013 is a big deal, but qualifying for the Olympic Trials is the crĂŠme de la crĂŠme. You might be able to make it to a Brier or Scotties 10 times or more in a 30-year career.

Q: I have inherited an old Singer sewing machine and wonder if it is worth keeping. -- Betty, North Port, Fla. A: There are millions of older Singer sewing machines tucked away in American homes. Because so many were made, they really arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worth that much money as a collectible. Most of the treadle models that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen in antique shops and malls have been priced well below $200. For example, I spotted a Singer Model No. 15-30 from about 1910 for $175, a Singer Model 66 also from the same period for $195, and a Singer No. 27-4 in oak cabinet, $150. There are always exceptions to every rule. C h e c k o u t w w w. MySingerStory.com for historical facts about the older machines.

to know its value and how old it is. -- Carol, Willmer, Minn. A: You have sent me a question that is impossible to answer. Even with the picture you sent, identifying the piece and determining its age would take a professional appraiser. I think your piece is probably from the 1950s or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s, judging by its design, but that is only a guess. Having it appraised might cost more than the piece is worth. With that in mind, you might show it to antique dealers in your area for their opinions. *** Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Riders ready for playoff grind Time for the playoffs! After going home early one year ago, the Saskatchewan Roughriders are back in the CFL post-season party and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll visit Calgaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house in the Western semifinal Sunday afternoon. The Riders learned late Friday night that they would face Calgary in Round 1 after the Stampedersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Week 19 win in Edmonton. That rendered Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rider game in B.C. meaningless, which is a good thing, because the Riders lost 17-6, their fourth loss in a row. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My first thought was people talked about whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better to go East or West in the playoffs, but I think there was a stretch in the season where we played Calgary, B.C. and then went to Toronto,â&#x20AC;? Rider head coach Corey Chamblin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told you weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d do it (win them all). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of those things

where it just solidified what we thought, and it happened that way.â&#x20AC;? Oh my what a fun week this is going to be! The Riders feel like they have a home playoff game because the Rider Nation habitually takes over McMahon Stadium in Calgary and this week will be no different. The Stampeders are the Ridersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top rival and there are plenty of hard feelings between the two. The Roughriders have quietly simmered since blowing a fourth quarter lead in Week 4 at Calgary, their only visit to McMahon, and would love to atone for it. Earlier this year, outspoken Calgary tailback Jon Cornish said Chamblin â&#x20AC;&#x153;isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t classyâ&#x20AC;? for boldly guaranteeing he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rush for 100 yards in their Week 13 meeting in Regina. Of course Cornish didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, and he got so

Q: This winter will be the first time we will use our new fireplace. Can you give us some advice on safely lighting a fire? -- Charlie L., Oviedo, Fla. A: Sure can! Your request comes at the perfect time, as we move into November and cold weather sets in for most of the country. Here are step-by-step instructions for lighting a fire safely and successfully. If you own a gas-lit fireplace, skip Steps 3 and 5. 1. Open the damper and visually inspect the firebox and flue to ensure that they are clear. 2. Stack firewood in the center of the fireplace, being careful not to place the logs too close together. The wood stack should take up no more than one-third of the space in the fireplace. 3. Place loosely rolled newspaper in the gaps created by the wood stack, on all three sides. (Use newspaper only -- avoid magazines or color inserts.) 4. Preheat the flue. Carefully light a rolled piece of newspaper and hold the paper about 2 inches inside the flue. Move the paper in slow circles for 10 to 30 seconds. This will encourage warm air to flow up and out the chimney. 5. Light the newspaper between the logs, on all three sides. A good-size flame should leap up shortly, but will die down as the last of

to see some good things out there. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stack a full deck, but some guys played their hearts out.â&#x20AC;? Chamblin has long maintained that come playoff time, his young troops would be ready. It would appear as though they are, as evidenced by the comment from Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offensive game star Brandon West. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grind time,â&#x20AC;? West said.

Fireplace basics the paper burns. Look for smaller flames flickering along the bottom of the logs; this shows that the wood has caught, and that a nice, small- to medium-size fire will build in a few minutes. 6. Add wood to the fire one piece at a time. To maintain the fireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s size, add one new log for each log that burns away. To increase its size, add one log every five minutes or so to a steady fire, and note the amount of flames and heat after each addition. The most complicated part of fire-building, for new users, is finding the right amount of kindling to get a steady fire going. Dry twigs and wood chips can be added to newspaper; leaves donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t burn as well and are better left on the mulch pile. Use a combination of woods for the best results: oak burns slowly and cleanly, while pine ignites more easily and burns hotter, but is consumed quickly. Enjoy your new fireplace, with a dose of common sense: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t burn trash in it, keep the gate closed and have the fireplace and chimney cleaned once a year. HOME TIP: Leave about 1 inch of fine ash in the bottom of the fireplace. The ash insulates the firebox and helps the fireplace heat more efficiently.

from a lack of confidence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You tell Jon Cornish all of Canada knows him for what he did. And in 30, years heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll always remember me and my classiness.â&#x20AC;? Consider the first shot

fired. Of course thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the little matter of the Riders carrying a four-game losing streak into the playoffs. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fooled; Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss in B.C. was a mirage. Darian Durant and Weston Dressler took the night off and Chris Getzlaf only played a series. On defence, Odell Willis and Joe Lobendahn were excused as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Glad itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over with,â&#x20AC;?

While the bounty of summer fruits has ended, dried fruits offer a healthy alternative and are a good choice when fresh fruits arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t available. Dried fruits are devoid of the water content that is so characteristic of fruits. Fruits are dried by drawing out the water content, either by sun-drying or using specialized machines. Once in their dried phase, the fruits can be stored for a longer period of time and continue to provide basic nutrients. Some of the most common dried fruits are apricots, raisins, plums, dates, prunes, cranberries, blueberries and figs. Dried fruits retain all the nutrients that are present in whole fruits. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re full of vitamins, minerals, fiber, iron, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and sugar. The infusion of these nutrients helps in promoting overall health and keeping us free of diseases, as well as devoid of fatigue. Dried fruits also are high in fiber, which lends to several benefits. Fiber helps to draw water into the system, bringing about effective digestion. Along with improving digestion, fiber also helps in cleansing the system by drawing out the layers of waste and impurities, which automatically prevents the onset of constipation and other diseases associated with bladder problems. This promotes great skin health, because the flushing of toxins leads to healthy and clear skin that is free of all skin conditions. Dried fruits are infused with iron, which is an important nutrient for the promotion of health. Iron allows for the production of hemoglobin. This nutrient will promote the production of white blood cells which are important for fighting of diseases and preventing conditions like anemia, other blood diseases, fatigue and weakness in the body. Dried fruits are also packed with antioxidants which prevent the onset of free radicals, and are high content of calcium, which promotes healthy

bones and teeth as well as better eyesight. The consumption of dried fruits, in measured amounts, also helps with weight loss. The fiber in the dried fruit makes you feel full for a longer period of time, making it the perfect snack. Dried fruits also are one of the best options to choose before exercise in place of carbs, because they provide for steady bursts of energy and help to sustain a heavy workout. The next time youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in need of a healthy snack, try this healthy, fiber-filled recipe for Fruit and Oat Cookies! FRUIT AND OAT COOKIES 1/3 cup coconut oil or vegetable oil 3 large bananas 1/4 cup agave syrup or honey 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 cups rolled oats 1/2 cup oat bran 1 1/2 cups mixed dried fruits, chopped 3/4 cup chopped pecans 1. Preheat oven to 350 F. 2. In a large bowl, mash bananas until smooth. Mix oil into the mashed bananas. Add the syrup or honey, vanilla and salt. 3. Stir in rolled oats, oat bran, dried fruits and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, rotating cookie sheets for even browning. Cool on wire rack. Store in tightly closed container in refrigerator. Angela Shelf Medearis is an award-winning childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s author, culinary historian and author of seven cookbooks.

Eskimos move on after part with Tillman National WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have cleaned out their lockers and are heading home, but a disappointing season has left a big question mark hanging over the quarterback position for 2013. For the first time since Buck Pierce arrived and became the starter, the team seems to be looking hard at other options. “I would say there will be competition for the starting position at quarterback,” coach Tim Burke said Sunday after ending the season with a win over Montreal a day earlier that left the team with a 6-12 record. That doesn’t come as a huge surprise. Pierce missed 11 games with a foot injury, concussion and finally a shoulder problem. He played in 16 games in 2011 and took the team to the Grey Cup in B.C., which they lost. But he also missed most of his first season in Winnipeg in 2010 and injuries were one of the big issues he faced when he was with the B.C. Lions. *** She hasn’t played a complete game yet against the U.S. women’s hockey

team, but Canadian goaltender Genevieve Lacasse has faced their shooters a lot in practice lately. Lacasse and seven players on the U.S. national team are teammates on the Boston Blades of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League. Lacasse, from Kingston, Ont., will wear Canadian colours when she sees her American teammates at the Four Nations Cup starting Tuesday in Tikkurila and Kerava, Finland. “We joke around about it,” Lacasse says. After the 23-year-old was named to Canada’s Four Nations roster, she proudly tweeted a picture of her new pads adorned with the Maple Leaf. Blades teammate and U.S. forward Kacey Bellamy’s counter-tweet was: “I’m going to light you up tonight.” “They’re giving me a hard time about my gear, but it’s all in fun,” Lacasse says. *** EDMONTON - The Edmonton Eskimos are moving on. Saturday’s surprising firing of general manager Eric Tillman sent shockwaves through an organization that has endured turmoil

throughout much of the season, but by Monday the players and coaching staff were getting on with preparation for the upcoming CFL eastern semifinal. Head coach Kavis Reed said while Tillman’s firing is tough on a personal level, he’s focusing his attention on this week’s practices in advance of playing the Toronto Argonauts on Sunday. “Eric and I have a history of working together so the first thing was looking at it from the more human side of it versus the business side,” Reed said. “The couple of hours we spent together (Saturday) chatting was not about football, but more about life itself. “This is a business, you know that, but I will never divorce the human element. Obviously Eric gave me an opportunity, championed my cause to be a head coach in this league, I’ve worked with him as an assistant coach, we’ve always worked well together. From the human aspect it’s been taxing.” Receiver Marcus Henry said the firing “was a surprise to most of us, but we don’t know much about it. That’s about all we can say.” International PRAGUE - The Czech

Republic retained the Fed Cup on Sunday when Lucie Safarova thrashed former No. 1 Jelena Jankovic of Serbia 6-1, 6-1 in the second reverse singles for an unassailable 3-1 lead in the final. Safarova sealed the matched in the best-of-five series with a forehand winner on her second match point before an ecstatic sell-out home crowd on a hard court in the O2 Arena. The Czechs are the third country in a row to successfully defend the Fed Cup title. Russia won in 2007-08 and Italy 2009-10. The Czechs took a 2-0 lead after the opening singles on Saturday but Ana Ivanovic’s victory earlier Sunday halved that advantage by beating Petra Kvitova 6-3, 7-5. It was the first loss for Kvitova after 11 straight Fed Cup singles wins. *** ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Kimi Raikkonen won a crash-filled Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday for his first victory since returning to Formula One this year, a result which throws open the drivers’ championship with two races remaining. Raikkonen, the 2007

champion who returned to F1 after rally driving for a year, overtook Red Bull’s Mark Webber at the start to move into second. He took the lead on the 20th lap when McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton retired because of a fuel pressure problem and then avoided the half-dozen crashes and collisions that twice brought out the safety car. Raikkonen held off Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, who finished second. Two-time defending champion Sebastian Vettel clawed back from last to finish third, his lead over Alonso cut to 10 points. McLaren’s Jenson Button finished fourth followed by Williams’ Pastor Maldonado. Vettel was penalized for fuel irregularities after qualifying, forcing him to start from the pits. He tops the drivers’ championship with 255 points, followed by Alonso at 245 and Raikkonen at 198. Red Bull leads the constructors’championship with 422 points, followed by Ferrari on 340 and McLaren 318. *** PARIS - Twenty-eight people have been arrested after a brawl in central Paris

between fans of Paris SaintGerman and Dinamo Zagreb before their Champions League match. At least two people were injured in the Monday night fight near the Bastille, police told the Sipa news agency. The Croatian fans weren’t allowed to buy tickets for the Tuesday match and were banned from France amid fears of hooliganism. About 100 PSG supporters were turned back from the Croatian border ahead of the Oct. 24 match to head off similar problems. Hooliganism has been rife among a section of hardcore PSG supporters since 1985, until a crackdown by the club following the deaths of two supporters in 2006 and 2010. “I strongly condemn the serious public order disturbances that happened last night,” Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoe said in a statement. “I would like to salute the rapid response of the police service.” Two weeks ago, PSG hooligans tried to travel independently of the club but were foiled by border police trying to cross into Croatia from Slovenia, with cars rented in Italy.

THE TRADER EXPRESS, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012

Wilson speaks on Redefining Success W. Brett Wilson Special to Glacier Media I grew up in Saskatchewan, and like many people, I have a huge soft spot for my homeland. I have a tremendous amount of pride in my roots, and great respect for the people who pioneered this part of the world. In a relatively short time, those determined settlers - including my great-grandparents helped turn the wild and rugged prairie into one of the greatest places to live on Earth. Part of what makes Western Canada so unique is the special breed of people who live here. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just something about this place - this land - that has helped to shape a people that are solid to the core. My affection for the land is surpassed only by my affection for the people who live here, and what sets us apart is really what holds us together - a deep and enduring commitment to each other. Growing up in North Battleford, a small city just North of Saskatoon, I witnessed incredible displays of community spirit from a host of people, but most notably from my own parents. My father, Bill Wilson, is a classic Prairie gentleman. If a stranger were stranded with a flat tire, he was the guy who would pull over first to lend a hand. I once was with my dad when he backed up 1/4 mile on a very muddy road just to follow a neighbour lady driving in another direction because he was worried she might get stuck and need help. My mother was equally inspirational. As a social worker, she was always doing what she could to help out the

community - from volunteering for causes related to her children to taking in foster kids to teaching parenting classes. For my mom, giving back was part of her DNA. This commitment to community is a wonderful part of my legacy, and probably yours. You may be reading this in Kamloops, Kipling, or Calgary, but my guess is that we share a similar belief: that the real measure of success is not just about hard work and big rewards. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also about giving back and taking care of the people around us. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about our sense of community. As a city, Calgary has been shaped by corporate and community leaders whose collective dreams have taken it from a North West Mounted Police outpost to an international centre of excellence for energy. We owe many of our greatest assets - such as world-class sports teams and facilities, dynamic arts and culture, and state-ofthe-art health care and education - to the individual visions and collective efforts of our community-minded citizens. One of my favorite examples of great combined effort comes from my hometown. When I started to become more focused on personal philanthropy a decade or so ago, I realized I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;tyet done anything substantive to give back to my birthplace - North Battleford - so I organized large (to me) donations to the both the local United Way and the Battlefords Union Hospital. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long to learn that my personal donation of $100,000 matched the United Wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire fundraising goal for that year.

Until then, I also learned, the biggest single donation the United Way had ever received was $5,000. I was dumbfounded. I knew that people in the Battlefords had wealth, but obviously they had never been given a vision for building their city through creative philanthropy. I believed there was a fair amount of money sitting under some mattresses in that town. And it was time to shake of some of it loose. I asked the hospital CEO what else was on his wish list and the request for four new anesthesiology machines caught my eye. The hospital had four operating rooms with four old units on site, but at least one unit was down for repairs at any given time. I told the hospital that I would give $300,000 toward the new machines, but they had to match my donation by raising $300,000 themselves. I

didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize then that the most the hospital had previously raised during one campaign was $100,000. The hospital accepted my plan, but wanted 12 months to raise the money. I thought for a few minutes and gave them three months. I can only imagine the nervous conversations that took place at BUH that day, but they called back the next morning and agreed to the three-month challenge. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dollarfor-Dollarâ&#x20AC;? campaign was on. It actually took less than three months for the city to meet - and exceed - their fundraising goal. They announced their victory on the local radio station at the end of a very touching multi-day radiothon, and called me with the results: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brett, we have met your challenge - in fact we blew through it - and have raised $500,000!â&#x20AC;?

was so moved by the way the community had come together to support the hospital that there was little I could do but match them - dollar for dollar - and up my donation to $500,000. The $1 million total tally was an incredible boost for the city, but the bigger impact came in terms of community engagement. To say the city and its citizens surprised themselves would be an understatement. But North Battleford is not unique. There are hundreds of similar communities with innovative organizations addressing an assortment of similar issues and causes - and providing great opportunities for citizens to work with them to make our communities better places to live and do business. To me, the business value of philanthropy is obvious. Strong communities attract new businesses, andqualityemployees, which in turn create an even stronger business climate. Employees want to live in communities with a strong economic and social fabric - places where they feel connected to one another and enjoy a great quality of life. Without question, communities with a strong economic base and a strong social fabric are the best places to live and work. As business guru Don Tapscott has said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Business cannot succeed in a world that is failing.â&#x20AC;? As one of the proud co-founders of Calgaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s FirstEnergy Capital Corp., Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen the enormous impact one company can have on its community. It would be nearly impossible to measure the number of lives that have been dramatically improved by FirstEnergyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philanthropic work. In addition to donating more than $10 million to more than 500 community agencies over the past almost 20 years, FirstEnergy has raised millions for the victims of the 1997 Manitoba flood, the Quebec ice storm in 1998, the Alberta drought in 2002, and the Slave Lake disaster in 2011. But the best corporate philanthropy doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just make a social impact - it also adds to a companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bottom line. FirstEnergy didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set out to be a leader in corporate philanthropy. We did set out to be a leader in investment banking. And we used charitable giving as a marketing tool. Every time we gave a contribution to a charity, we were very open about the fact that we expected something in return.What we gained in the form of public recognition,

co-branding with larger companies, or recognition within the charityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s network helped us to dramatically increase our profile, develop new partnerships, and grow our client base. That is the kind of return on investment corporate philanthropy should expect to achieve. In my world, giving and getting definitely go together, but philanthropic giving can be more rewarding than you might expect. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m quite candid about the fact that when I first started my career 30 years ago, my goal was simple: I wanted to make money - and lots of it. I wanted success, the big house, and a few nice toys in the garage. What I soon learned was that financial success can become surprisingly hollow. Ironically, philanthropic pursuits produce a much more satisfying return. So after spending many years focused on making money, I now spend as much - if not more - of my energy giving it away. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I am constantly challenging people to think carefully about how we measure success. Earlier this year, the first World Happiness Report was released. It attempted to measure social and economic well being around the world. Canada placed fifth. It came as a surprise to some people, but not to me, that a nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happiness is not necessarily tied to its economy, but has more to do with things like personal freedom and strong social networks. Just like the people who settled our communities decades ago, we are wired to connect with and care for one another. If we stop measuring success based on material wealth, and start measuring it in terms of things we really value - like our relationships with family and friends, and the quality of our communities, then we all might start to feel richer than we thought possible. To me, the real bottom line is not about how much we get, but how much we are privileged to invest in others. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how I have redefined success. Business, entrepreneur and philanthropist Brett Wilson is publishing a new book in November. Entitled Redefining Success: Still Making Mistakes it will in bookstores this month. Brett Wilson authored this column in partnership with Glacier Media Group, which has extensive holdings in community media and business-to-business media across Canada.

THE TRADER EXPRESS, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012

Port opens to handle growing traffic concerns It encountered some delays and a suspension of the original contract, but after more than four years the new United States Portal Port of Entry is now open. The official opening was marked on Oct. 31 with the completion of the $43 million project. Brian King, of the United States Customs and Border Protection, noted the previous border station was built in 1931, so the building was due for an upgrade considering the changes in the kinds of vehicles and quantity that go through the port on a daily basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our border operations have changed significantly since 1931, and our traffic patterns have changed significantly,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new facility offers a couple of things the old one did not.â&#x20AC;? The new port of entry was upgraded as a singular project, noted King. The America Recovery Act mandated the upgrade of 31 ports of entry, including the Noonan port, which was unveiled last fall. The Portal border crossing was not part of that initiative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a planned

construction, where those were part of the ARA,â&#x20AC;? said King. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was separate from those builds.â&#x20AC;? Construction began in the summer of 2008, and Sally Mayberry, regional public affairs officer for the U.S. General ServicesAdministration (GSA), noted the original construction contract had to be suspended in January 2010. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;revised project scopeâ&#x20AC;? was put out to bid, she added, and it was awarded to Tetra Tech/ RCSI in October 2010. There were some design issues that had to be changed, particularly with joining up with the Canadian port. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The main concern was how the original designed port of entry would affect outbound inspection processes and access to the Canadian port by outbound traffic,â&#x20AC;? said Mayberry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To address those concerns, GSA moved the entrance as originally designed on the western edge of the site to the eastern side of the site.â&#x20AC;? While there was only one lane for commercial traffic previously, there will now be three. There are also two passenger car lanes. Some of those lanes can accommodate

both kinds of traffic so if there is a busy time for one kind of traffic, they can open an extra lane for the overload of vehicles. Last year, the CBP processed more than 104,000 cars, an increase of 15 per cent, and more than 105,000 trucks, an increase of 35 per cent. The new facility has a detention area, complete with three cells, an important upgrade seeing as how the original facility did not have any. King also said there is now an indoor firearms range and physical training room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mat room for our handcuffing drills and our arm holds that we train on,â&#x20AC;? said King. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The old one did not have either of those things.â&#x20AC;? There are also conference rooms and an enrolment centre office for their trusted traveller program. An indoor inspection garage is another upgrade from the older building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This one is set up to actually do (multiple inspections),â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a couple of bays, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a vehicle lift, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the ability to put a vehicle up on a lift if we need to.â&#x20AC;?
