    Fivemenare in custody followingabotchedrobbery and dramatic police takedown inBurnaby.

    Policeofficersswarmedaroundtheentranceto the business complex at 3430 Brighton Ave.and the Production Way SkyTrain station onWednesday afternoon.

    Police say some North Vancouver RCMPplainclothes investigators were in the rightplace at the time, when the suspects attempt-ed to rob a Pacific CoastCom Telus storearound 1:30 p.m.

    North Van was working an unrelatedproblem that was multi-jurisdictional, andthey came across a vehicle of interest in anoth-er matter, and as they were in the process ofcoordinating a traffic check of that vehicle,these individuals did a robbery right in frontof them, said Burnaby RCMP Sgt. AndyLeClair. Right now, we have five in cus-tody. As far as what charges will be laid, Icant speak to that. Nobodys been chargedyet. Were just in the complete beginnings ofthis.

    Several eyewitnesses reported seeing policetake the suspects downwith gunsdrawn in thelower parking lot behind the Burnaby NOWoffices. Meanwhile, police were also on sceneacross Lougheed Highway at the ProductionWay SkyTrain station. Eyewitnesses told theBurnaby NOW that at least one suspect wastaken into custody at that location.

    Its one of those things that unfoldedquickly. But I can tell you right now, just onthe front end of it, Im pretty pleased with thefact that these guys are in custody, LeClairsaid.

    LeClair said at least two of the suspectswere already known to police.

    LeClair said police have recovered a replicahandgun from one of the suspects, but it hadnot been converted to fire live ammunition.

    Carrie McLaren,Green Party of CanadaBriefly introduce yourself:

    By day, a junior accountant in aBurnaby office, the rest of my time issplit between keeping up-to-date onlocal news, campaigning for theGreens and educating myself ona variety of issues.

    What political experience doyou have?

    Ran locally for MP in 2008election and MLA in 2009. Notbeing an expert or professionalpolitician means that I can thinkoutside of the its always beendone that way box.

    What issue will you prioritize ifelected?

    For Burnaby-New Westminster, theissues are a combination of homelessnessand lack of jobs. Id like to make sure towork with Burnaby and the province toget a homeless shelter/transition home

    created in Burnaby. Then on to creatinga national affordable housing plan. Oneimmediate action would be to supportthe delivery of increased social housingdollars to provincial and municipal gov-ernments through the Canada Mortgageand Housing Corporation. Get back intofunding co-operative housing, and the

    renovations of older homes andbuildings to be more energy effi-cient. That would also help withjob creation.

    What is your partys trackrecord on dealing with thatissue?

    Since weve not had thechance to prove ourselves, I canonly say that this is one of myown priorities.

    If you could be any superhero,which one would you be?

    After much consultation with comicbook aficionados Green Lantern, whosepower is limited only by his imagination.Looking forward to seeing the movie thissummer.

    Garth Evans,Liberal Party of CanadaBriefly introduce yourself:

    I was a Burnaby city councillor from2005 to 2008. I have been involved as asupporter in many past Liberal partycampaigns.

    What issue will you prioritize if elect-ed?

    The most important issue in thiselection is the protection and enhance-ment of Canadas social programs.Health care, seniors care, education,immigration services and affordablehousing will all be at risk if the current

    government is re-elected. ALiberal government will protectCanadas universal health-caresystem and provide it withsubstantial additional funding.It will also take steps to shortenthe unacceptably long waits, upto 14 years, for family reunifica-tion immigration applicationsto be processed. It will alsoprovide increased funding forseniors care, affordable hous-ing and other social programs.

    I demonstrated my flex-ible negotiation skills by beingamong the very few MPs in par-liamentary history, ever to have

  • Burnabys first medical marijuana dis-pensary opened at 10 a.m. on April 15,and so far, things are going well, accordingto Metrotown Medicinal Society directorBritney Anne.

    Its been great, she said in a phoneinterview the afternoon it opened. Wevegot five members so far.

    The society invited the Burnaby RCMPto the opening to address any concernslaw enforcement might have, she said, butofficers did not attend.

    But Burnaby RCMP spokesperson Cpl.Brenda Gresiuk said compassion clubs anddispensaries arent legally entitled to sellmarijuana under Canadian law.

    To date, theres no legal mechanismfor that, she said.

    She would not comment on whether ornot action would be taken by the RCMP

    against the dispensary.Health Canada does not license such

    organizations to possess, produce or dis-tribute marijuana for medical purposes,according to a government press release.

    The release was put out last June andsent to the NOW this week in response toqueries about the Burnaby dispensary byOlivia Caron, a media relations officer forHealth Canada.

    The federal Marihuana Medical AccessRegulations only provide three optionsfor individuals to obtain legal medicalmarijuana: access to Health Canadas sup-ply, obtaining a licence to produce it fromHealth Canada, or obtaining a licence fromHealth Canada to designate someone togrow it on the individuals behalf.

    A letter or document from a physicianalone does not give legal authorization foran individual to possess marijuana, therelease stressed.

    Marijuana dispensary: Ryan Steplock, Britney Anne and Jordan Kuyvenhoven atthe newly opened Metrotown Medicinal Society.

    As sure as spring bringsskunk cabbage and thescent of freshly spreadmanure, a federal election bringsthe suggestion that we makevoting mandatory.

    Dont do it, politicians.The Lets just

    make everyone doit! approach isthrown about as ananswer to the (alleged) problemof declining voter turnout.

    Thats not to imply that voterturnout isnt declining. It hit58.8 per cent in the 2008 contest,after bouncing back and forthbetween the high 60s and mid-70s during the previous half cen-tury. But turnout has never beenclose to 100 per cent. In fact, itflirted with the low 60s in the1890s, not far above recent lev-els. And the highest level everwas 79.4 per cent participation inthe 1958 election. We have yet tocrack 80 per cent participation inany election.

    The question should not be,Should we make everyonevote? but, Why dont peoplewant to vote? Let me try toanswer that as someone who hasserious doubts about voting thisyear. The fear that my vote wontmatter: Oh sure, they sayevery vote is important. But inLangley, where I live, the incum-bent MP got 62.5 per cent of thetotal votes. While its an extremeexample, there are dozens ofother ridings across Canada

    where putting up the lawn signsand holding debates is nothingmore than a ritual exercise, agame with a foregone conclu-sion. The election is a lock, andif youre not a Conservative/Liberal/NDPer/Bloquiste, tough

    cookies. Keep in mindthat I have never, evervoted for a winningcandidate at the federal

    or provincial level. If I was ahockey player whod lost everygame for 14 years, Id have got-ten the hint by now and hungup my skates.

    Im aware that the flip side ofsaying your vote doesnt mat-ter is that, if enough people saythat, it becomes a self-fulfillingprophecy. But 62 per cent? Comeon. The choices arent that great:Im a firm believer in the hold-your-nose-and-pick-the-least-offensive-candidate approach. Ihave strongly held opinions, butthey dont map onto the politicallandscape of any party. When Ivote, I tend to vote against theparties and policies I really hate,rather than for one that speaksto me. Its not exactly a la carte poli-tics: Believe it or not, this lefty,bleeding-heart pinko agrees withthe Conservatives from timeto time. And there are Liberalpolicies that I find palatable, andNDP and Green ideas that sendme into fits of frothing rage.

    Information overload during federal campaignWhatever is responsible for the low

    voter turnout expected in the May 2federal election, it cant be a shortage ofinformation about the politicians andtheir politics.

    Political parties, individualcandidates, their supportersand detractors, and punditsand commentators with varying levels ofexpertise and credibility are everywhere.

    They have Facebook pages and Twitteraccounts. They populate the blogosphereand every corner of the Internet. Some

    have developed their own mobile phoneapps to keep in touch with fans.

    There are still the old-fashioned meansof contacting prospective voters, like

    email (who would have thoughtonly a decade ago that emailcould ever be old-fashioned?)and television (from the attack

    ads that assaulted us months before theelection call to the nationally broadcastdebates). And theres radio and newspa-pers not to mention that really old-fash-ioned communication: talking to people,

    face to face.That an immense quantity of informa-

    tion is available is without question. Butthe quality is often anything but unques-tionable. In an age in which anyone canoffer opinions for national perusal, howcan the average voter sift through it all,with expectations of a credible, informedconclusion?

    For our part, we are offering coverageof the federal election at the local level inthe pages of this paper check out Q&Aswith Burnaby-NewWestminster candi-

    Who will expand CPP benefits?Dear Editor:

    Elections are in the air, and I am concerned aboutthe future of my retirement security, along with themajority of Canadians.

    With reports that only one in five private sectorworkers belong to an employer plan; that most peo-ple cant save, let alone afford an RRSP; that seniors,single women, First Nations and those living withdisabilities are living in poverty; and that our chil-dren wont have access to the same job market thatwe once did, how is this sustainable?

    Now the federal government decided to supporta program called PRPP (Pooled Registered PensionPlans) a super-size version of RRSP that employers

    can buy into. Who does this benefit other than theinsurance companies and banks that lobbied forit? The provinces have a role to play, and with anelection coming, Ill be supporting politicians whosupport me and my family. I want an expansion ofthe CPP benefits on a fully funded go-forward basis,starting right now. This would bring equality anddignity for all, not just a privileged few. This elec-tion, I will be asking whos on my side.

    But I cant pick and choosefrom the policies of theparties.

    All I can do is makeone vote, for one potentialMP, who may or may notwin, may or may not siton the back benches, mayor may not cave in andcompromise the secondParliament convenes. Negativity and person-ality: As I write this, thefour main party leadersare scrapping on TV about

    ethics and leadership abil-ity and coalitions that mayor may not exist. Whenpolicy does get mentionedin campaigns, it tends tobe X is a strong leaderwho can provide a stableeconomy, or X caresabout families.

    The last time I checked,strength of character wasnot enough to stave off arecession, and if I wanteda leader to care aboutme personally, Id havefriended him on Facebook

    already.The election machine

    is working overtime to tryand convince me to votefor X, Y, or Z, but its for-gotten to give me enoughreasons to mark a ballot,period.

    So what would makeme happier about voting?A better system and moreparticipation.

    Election: Changes needed

    country. There are huge differences in theprograms of the political parties, and yetin the last federal election, less than 60 percent of eligible voters even bothered tovote! This is the lowest participation ratein Canadian history, and it seems to bepart of a general trend over the past twodecades.

    As long as so many Canadians refuse toparticipate in the political process in anymeaningful way, unscrupulous peoplewill continue to run the show. This is whyover 1,000 people were arrested at the 2010G20 demonstrations, and it is why 300,000Canadians are homeless. Criminalizationof dissent and mass poverty are seriousissues, and we continue to head in thewrong direction on these and many otherissues.

    But its going to get worse. Much, muchworse. The price of gasoline is now morethan $1.30 a litre, and we can expect to seelarge increases in the price of food realsoon. Peak oil is a reality, and the price offuel will continue to rise. Climate changeand population explosion are realities,and the price of food will continue to rise.These are extremely serious problems, andunless they are addressed immediately byall of us working together and by our gov-ernments, all of us are going to be wishingthat we had brought along a spare paddle.Of course, when that happens, it will befar too late.

    Federal election, 2011: Figure out whatthe parties stand for, and then, get out andvote!

    shopping district, but I disagree withtheir opposition or worry to the cityssuggestion that employees and businessowners park in parking lots.

    I have the perk of living close to theshops along Hastings, but with it comesthe headache of having employees andbusiness owners of the Heights parkingin front of my home all day. I have spo-ken with city staff regarding this all-dayparking, and unfortunately the solutionsoffered are not satisfactory, and I amtold that resident parking only is not anoption.

    I have even spoken with the peoplewho park in front of my house all day, andall I get is a shrug of the shoulders and a: Idont have anywhere else to park.

    Why wouldnt the merchants want totake advantage of the citys offer of park-ing? It is not stated, but even if there isa cost to it, is this not a part of businessthat can be written off? Is the cost notworth making the residents of the Heightshappy?

    Please remember that you have a busi-ness in this neighbourhood, but we livehere.

    An unrecognizable CanadaDear Editor:

    Re: An unintended vote for the Bloc?,Letters to the editor, Burnaby NOW, April16

    As usual, Mr. Gary Mausers letter wasbang-on. Permit me to put another littletwist on the situation. The Bloc gets 53seats. As a result of Ignatieffs perfor-mance, the NDP gets 52 seats and theLiberals end up with 51 seats.

    Going along with Mr. Mausers mus-ings, that makes Gilles Duceppe primeminister, Jack Layton minister of financeand Michael Ignatieff minister of foreignaffairs or minister of defence

    It wont be a pretty picture! Youll neverrecognize Canada!

    The dispensary only accepts mem-bers who have a doctors recommen-dation or confirmation of a seriousillness, which is in line with otherdispensaries in B.C., Anne said.

    We arent selling to just any-body, she said, but added that thedispensary has an unlimited capac-ity to serve any valid patients whowish to apply. We do follow correctprocedures.

    The society was originally look-ing at setting up shop in NewWestminster but chose the Burnabyproperty at 4927 Kingsway basedon its central location and proximityto the Metrotown SkyTrain station,Anne said.

    There are two dispensariesin Vancouver, but patients fromCoquitlam, New Westminster,Surrey and other suburbs have dif-ficulty travelling that distance, sheexplained.

    We serve a lot of disabledpatients, Anne said, adding that notall of the members are able to drive.

    The Metrotown dispensary is thefirst to be located near a SkyTrainline, she said.

    The society is considering expand-ing to New Westminster next, Anneadded.

    Dana Larsen, whowas a candidatein the recent B.C. New Democratleadership race, is a director with thesociety and operates the VancouverMedical Cannabis Dispensary withtwo locations in Vancouver.

    The first is in East Vancouver andthe second opened about a year agoin Vancouvers West End, he said.

    Its gone very smoothly, he saidof the two dispensaries, adding thesociety serves about 3,000 patients.

    The East Vancouver dispensaryhas a very good relationship withthe nearby Ray-Cam Co-operativeCentre, he said, and just received a

    letter of thanks for a food drive doneon behalf of the centre.

    Larsen is also on the board of asociety that opened a dispensary inMaple Ridge, he said.

    There, people were initially con-cerned about the effect the dispen-sary might have on a neighbourhoodwhere drug crime had only recentlybeen reduced, according to Larsen.

    Within a couple of weeks, wewon our detractors over, he said,adding the dispensarys directoris now a Block Watch captain inhis neighbourhood. They see howimportant we are to the commu-nity.

    He expects the same reception inBurnaby, he said.

    The Metrotown Medicinal Societyis located at 4927 Kingsway and isopen from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. fromMonday to Friday, and from 11 a.m.to 6 p.m. on weekends.

    social programs. Liberal governmentsbrought in universal medicare and passedthe Canada Health Act. Past Liberal gov-ernments were responsible for establish-ing most of the existing federally fundedsocial programs. We are the party thatcares about people and has worked toprotect those people who are poor or dis-advantaged.

    If you could be any superhero, whichone would you be?

    If I could be a superhero I think Iwould like to be Liberalman, modelledafter Superman.

    Then I would be able to fly arounddoing good, protecting the disadvantagedand punishing evil.

    I suppose in a way that is how I wouldsee my role as a member of Parliament.

    raising seniors out of poverty, providingsupports for families coping with bothyoung children and aging seniors, com-bating homelessness and fixing problemswith health care.

    What is your partys track record ondealing with this issue?

    Tommy Douglas, voted the great-est Canadian, and the New DemocraticParty established our publicly fundedhealth-care system, and we will continueto work towards sustaining this fair,inclusive system. NDP leader Jack Layton

    has pledged to take immediate action toaddress seniors living in poverty and stu-dent debt. The NDP caucus has proposedto put in place a national homelessnessstrategy and to ensure funding for postsecondary education.

    If you could be any superhero, whichone would you be?

    When I was growing up, CaptainCanuck was my favourite superhero.Captain Canuck stood up for the dis-advantaged and upheld fundamentalCanadian values.

    government legislation. (Bankruptcy andInsolvency Act discharge list).

    What issue will you prioritize if elected?I will ensure that I represent the whole

    community to Ottawa and not the otherway around. I will stop the partisanmisuse of the MP householder mailedreports.

    I will advocate strongly on anti-crimeissues. I will also change the pattern ofnegative voting into positive voting, tohelp our community.

    What is your partys track record ondealing with that issue?

    The government has passed or tabledmany incremental improvements to the

    justice system to provide the basic toolsfor public safety, including anti-humansmuggling, but sadly, the NDP votedagainst all of them.

    If you could be any superhero, whichone would you be?

    There are many that we can rememberwho gave of themselves, as they lookedforward to make things better for the nextgeneration.

    Locally my father dedicated his life tohelp the human condition as a reverend-minister. He inspired thousands to chooseto live better, while he led in the construc-tion of seniors low-income housing.

    Leading by example, and selflesslyserving the community is a worthy pathfor me to follow.

  • While Mayor Derek Corrigan and themajority of Burnabys councillors backedJohn Horgan in the B.C. NDP leadershiprace, Corrigan said Adrian Dix will makea good leader for the party.

    Horgan, the NDP energy critic andMLA for the Malahat-Juan de Fuca rid-ing, was one of four final contenders forthe top provincial New DemocratParty spot.

    But Adrian Dix, Vancouver-Kingsway MLA and former NDPhealth critic, won the leadershipof the party last Sunday.

    Im feeling good about it,Corrigan said. Although I wasa Horgan supporter, through thecampaign Dix showed he was astrong candidate.

    All Burnaby CitizensAssociation members have to beregistered members of the NDP.The current city council is com-posed entirely of BCA council-lors.

    The other two candidates wereMike Farnworth, Port CoquitlamMLA, and Dana Larsen, a mari-juana activist and former NDPcandidate.

    While each of the candidatespresented different platformsand plans for the partys future,Corrigan said, it was a very ami-cable race.

    Dix had a lot of name recog-nition, something Horgan did not havegoing for him, Corrigan pointed out.

    It is a huge advantage, being locatedon the Lower Mainland, Corrigan saidof Dix.

    But Horgan ran a good campaign andmade a good impression everywhere hespoke, he added.

    Dix is a good candidate to take onthe job of being premier of the province,Corrigan said.

    Thats the most important thing, headded. His chances are excellent.

    If there were to be a provincial electionin the near future, Corrigan said, PremierChristy Clark would have tough competi-tion from Dix.

    She is a personwho really doesnt havemuch of a grasp of the issues, he said.

    The media has portrayed her well sofar, he said, but all shes done since becom-ing premier in March is announce plans to

    increase the minimum wage.The media has had a love

    affair with Christy Clark uptill now, Corrigan said. Theythink shes Christy Clark theWonderful.

    But she isnt a very deep candi-date, he added, and Dixs knowl-edge of issues and politics willstand him in good stead.

    Coun. Pietro Calendino, theonly Burnaby councillor to offi-cially back Dix, was pleased withthe outcome of the leadershiprace.

    Hes the most hardworkingMLA I know, he said, addinghe supported Dix because of hisideas, principles and ethics.

    Hewould be able to knowledg-ably compare the NDPs record inthe 90s with the Liberals overthe past decade if a provincialelection was called, Calendinosaid.

    I think he stands more thana good chance (in an election),he added.

    Burnaby councillors Dan Johnston,Colleen Jordan, Sav Dhaliwal and NickVolkow all officially backedHorgan, as didBCA president Gord Larkin, and Burnaby-Deer Lake MLA Kathy Corrigan.

    Coun. Paul McDonell was undecidedwhen he last spoke with the NOW, as wasCoun. Richard Chang.

    Coun. Anne Kang did not return callsfrom the NOW on the subject.

    That event will be at StoneyCreek Community School, 2740Beaverbrook Cres. Participantswill be releasing 3,000 coho fry,supplied by Fisheries and OceansCanada.

    Members of the Sapperton Fishand Game Club will be there tohelp the kids release the small fryinto the water. Volunteers fromBurnaby Mountain Secondary willalso help distribute the fish.

    The fry will live for a year, inthe creek before heading out to sea.People should stay out of the creek(and keep their dogs out, too) for ayear to let the salmon grow undis-turbed.

    Samurai tale comes aliveTurning Japanese: From left, Quinn Johnson and Daniel Gorodetsky are two of the Burnaby Mountain Secondary dramastudents staging Rashomon. The play runs May 4 to 6 and May 12 to 14.

    Larry Wright/burnaby now

    Apart from Godzilla movies and anime,Akira Kurosawas samurai period piecesare what most of us tend to associate withJapanese film.

    Kurosawa was not only one of the mostinfluential filmmakers in history, but hisearly film Rashomon introduced an entire-ly new narrative technique byusing flashbacks and conflict-ing vantage points of the sameevent to tell a story.

    In the 1951 film, often cred-ited as the reason the AcademyAwards created the best foreignfilm category, a woman is rapedand her samurai husband killedwhile walking in the woods together inancient Japan. Rashomon offers the audiencefour different viewpoints of the incident the wifes, the suspects, a witnesss and,through a medium, even the dead hus-bands with each revealing a little moredetail to determine what happened.

    However, you probably wouldnt guessthe subject matter was so dark if you hap-pened towander into theBurnabyMountainSecondary studio theatre during a rehears-al, where the high-spirited cast was busycrossing swords, running lines and trying

    to figure out how to wear a kimono whilealso hiding protective kneepads when theBurnaby NOW stopped by.

    Theres certainly no shortage of inter-est in theatre arts at the school, whichallowed director Felicity Rudolph to havetwo entirely different casts for the play partly out of necessity.

    We double cast it because we had toreally, said the drama teacher, who head-ed off to Ottawa last week with her youngcharges after qualifying for the nationalimprov tournament. Usually we havesomeone who can fill in, but you cant dothat with a sword fight. I have to protect

    the cast.Its one thing for an under-

    study to step in for a main leadfor a night, but quite another tohave a student who hasnt fullyrehearsed the fight scenes getwhacked upside the head witha metal samurai sword, and soRudolph opted to go with two

    entirely different sets of actors.Daniel Gorodetsky, who plays the vil-

    lain, said learning to use the swords was aninteresting challenge.

    Its fun, said the Grade 12 student,who hopes to study journalism after gradu-ating. It can get intimidating sometimes,especially at the very beginning when wefirst brought out the metal swords afterpractising with wooden swords. We had astage combat guy (Harvey Ostroff) come in he was awesome, and all you see has beenchoreographed by him.

    Costume designer Jordon Binotto, whoshares the same role with Gorodetsky, saidhe didnt find learning the sword fightingmoves came easily.

    Gosh no, he said with a laugh. Theothers were way better at it than me.

    He added that while the subject matteris quite grim, there is nothing that shouldalarm worried parents.

    It is definitely mature content, butyoure so involved in the scene, instead ofit being shocking, it is just a natural pro-gression of the story, said Binotto. Plusits not really explicit on the stage. Thanksto Ms. Rudolphs direction, all the moremature parts are off-stage and suggestedexcept for the kiss, which of course hap-pens all the time!

    While people may already be familiarwith the classic film, Rudolph said the

    play, which is based more closely on theoriginal 1915 short story the movie is, alsohas a different ending than Kurosawasversion.

    Crazy 8s festI had a chance to attend the Crazy

    8s film fest on April 9, which includeda film with young Burnaby actor SeanMathieson.

    For those who arent familiar withthe concept, Crazy 8s is a contest where

    filmmakers pitch their ideas, and final-ists get $800 to make a short film ineight days.

    Sean, 14, gave a top-notch perfor-mance in Chained, a story seeminglyabout child abuse but with a surpriseending. Out of the six films screened atthe gala, Chained seemed to get the loud-est gasp at the end. Sean also landeda small part in Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2:Rodrick Rules, so keep an eye out for thisBurnaby actor on the big screen.

    ClarificationIn an April 13 article in the Burnaby

    NOW, I mentioned that school trusteeDiana Mumford was involved in effortsto make Byrne Creek Secondary thefirst community school in the district. Imeant to write the first secondary com-munity school in the district. We have,of course, a few elementary communityschools in Burnaby already.

    If you arent having any difficulty read-ing this, chances are you may take havinggood eyesight for granted.

    The Canadian National Institute forthe Blind (CNIB), not wanting to see morepeople lose their vision because they maynot be aware they may be at risk develop-ing glaucoma, want Canadiansto take a better look at how theylook after their eyes.

    The not-for-profit rehabilita-tion agency has consequentlylaunched a nationwide onlinephoto contest Eye Rememberoffering a trip for two to a majorCanadian holiday destinations inorder to help raise awareness ofthe importance of eye exams.

    There is a common misconcep-tion that glaucoma is a conditionthat only affects people approach-ing their senior years. While it is the sec-ond most common cause of irreversiblevision loss in seniors, it can actually strikeat any age.

    Gettanjali Chopra, for example, a 25-year-old Burnaby woman currently pur-suing a masters degree in public policy atSFU, has never known a day without it.

    I was actually born with glaucoma,said Chopra. I always had eye problemsas a kid, but it wasnt until I was 12 that itwas finally diagnosed.

    She is now considered legally blind,although she is able to see up to threefeet in front of her with her right eye and

    keeps her condition manageable by takingeyedrops several times a day.

    Its a lot of little things for me, shesaid. I have to sit really close to the TV,and sometimes I have to take my notes inclass from the person sitting next to me.

    According to the CNIB, people with afamily history of glaucoma are six timesmore likely to develop it than others,and a recent survey revealed that half

    of Canadians arent aware abouttheir family history of glauco-ma. The survey also revealedthat 71 per cent of Canadians areunaware that they could havethe condition, which is generallypainless, but still be able to seeperfectly well, and that roughly250,000 Canadians have it, buthalf of them dont know it yet.

    There is no cure for glaucoma,but it can be controlled if detect-ed and treated early. Ironically,Chopra said that her own family

    doesnt have a history of the eye condi-tion.

    Its kind of funny, actually, she said.Im the one who has it and Im alwaystelling my parents go and get their eyeschecked.

    As part of the awareness campaign, theCNIB are inviting Canadians to uploadcherished photos that they wouldnt wantto risk never seeing again at www.eyeremember.ca. On May 18, professionalphotographers will choose a winner, whowill then choose from all-inclusive vaca-tions worth $3,500 each to the Okanagan,Banff, Niagara Falls or Quebec City.

    his transplant on Jan. 24, 2009, after devel-oping cancer linked to hepatitis B.

    The pairs presentation promoted morepublic awareness of the need for organdonations.

    Corrigan suggested organ donationshould be the default choice for everyone,with people having to contact the registryto have their names removed, instead ofhaving to register themselves.

    High Blood Pressure?

    By Dr. C. Hammoud, PhD - Must help or money refundedIf your stomach is excessively acidic it means all your cells in yourbody are acidic. By correcting the excessively acidic stomach youshould not need anti-acid pills to control reflux (heartburn). All acidiccells are deprived of oxygen and are the breeding ground for manyillnesses including weight gain, diabetes, stress, vascular diseasesand cancer. This fact was discovered by Dr. Otto Warburg years agoand he received two Nobel Prizes. You can change your acidiccells in your body by eating 80% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes,fruit). Eat 20% acidic food (bread, noodles, rice, animal derivedfoods). Full details inside the box. If you dont want to make majorchanges in your diet, try Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance

    #39 guaranteed to bring your body to a pH alkaline balance. Free pH test kit inside the box. Dr. C.Everett Koop M.D. states that 68% of all illnesses and deaths are due to the wrong food and thequantity we eat. Unfortunately, virtually nothing about nutrition or natural health products is taughtin medical school say many prominent medical doctors in print and on TV including the well knownDr. Andrew Weil M.D. Go on the internet and inform yourself.

    Acidic Stomach& Acid Reflux


    Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from ourown bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bonemarrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other typesof tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply andare able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Locatedeverywhere in our body, stem cells are even under our skin layeredbetween the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stemcells under our skin may help to create a more youthful cell that wouldreplenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. Ifour bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can resultin many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, infact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stemcells in our body have a great potential of self-repair and the ability torejuvenate tissues. It does not contain live human stem cells as thesecan only be transplanted by surgery and are subject to immuno-suppressant drugs to avoid graft rejection.Naturopathic Doctorsummarized his experience in writing after using this Stem CellActivator: Used for all organ and tissue damage, heart attack damage,osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic brain injury, musculardystrophy, Crohns disease, diabetes, lupus, spinal injuries, and otherdiseases and tissue damage.

    A sporty SUV arrives

    Four short years ago,Ford raised the baron crossover SUVswhen it introduced theEdge, a mid-size crossoverSUV that successfullymarried cool with conve-nient. The Edge was aninstant hit, appealing toa wide demographic andannouncing Fords returnto prominence in the pas-senger-car market. You

    can imagine, then, that theexpectations for the rede-signed, 2011 Edge wouldbe very, very high andyoud be right.

    DesignThe 2011 Edge is a

    beautiful vehicle and astrong followup to whatwas already a very attrac-tive crossover. The pro-portions havent changedmuch, but the lines aresmoother and bolder, in

    keeping with recent Forddesign work. The Sportgains a few tweaks, themost noticeable of whichis the blacked-out frontgrille.

    The interior is as well-done as the exterior, witha tiered dashboard thatflows into the centre con-sole. Instead of a hard-plastic shell, the top of thedashboard is padded to

    create a softer finish thatsmore inviting. And ergo-nomics aside, the touchpanels look nifty.

    PerformanceMost Edges feature a

    from the Mustang, alongwith a fluid six-speedautomatic transmissionand paddle shifters thatare surprisingly respon-sive.

    EnvironmentTheres ample pas-

    senger space in both thefront and rear, along withauto-folding rear seatsthat make it easy to extendthe large cargo area. Thecupholders and storagebin in the centre consoleare underwhelming, butsizable map pockets and adecent glove box make upfor it.

    FeaturesThe Edge Sport sells

    for $43,499 with all-wheeldrive, and comes loadedwith standard featuressuch as ABS, tractioncontrol, stability control,automatic A/C, cruisecontrol, heated front seats,tilt/telescope steering,12-speaker Sony stereo,

    Hes taking his dreams to the mat

    Melvin Arciaga is taking everyvictory as a first step along aever-lengthening road to success.

    The Burnaby South SecondarySchool junior recently chalkedup his first national age-groupwrestling championships. But itundoubtedly will not be his last.

    The just-turned 16-year-oldgrappler won the Canadian cadetboys wrestling title at 50-kilo-grams in Windsor, Ont. on April8.

    Arciaga, who won the pro-vincial high school title earlierin the year, defeated his B.C.counterpart Andrew Dignan ofAbbotsford 7-2 in the nationalfinal.

    But it was his upset win in thequarter-finals that was the mosttelling.

    In the quarters,Arciagapinnedheavy favourite Sam Jagas fromthe Matmen club in Mississauga,Ont. to move on to the final four.

    In his first-ever appearanceat the cadet nationals last year,Arciaga finished with a silvermedal at 48 kg.

    I remember in Grade 9, Iwanted to win the provincials.But after training over and over,I wanted to be a national champi-on becuse it sounded that muchbigger, said Arciaga.

    While that eventuality didnthappen, Arciaga made sure thatresult would be different the nexttime he found himself in thatposition.

    I was so close to getting agold (last year), Arciaga added.(Jagas) was undefeated for along time. When I pinned him,people came out of the standsand other athletes asked, Areyou the guy who beat Jagas? Youknow he hasnt lost in years.

    Rather than feel cocky orboastful, Arciaga thought thatmaybe the Ontario wrestler hadperhaps been a bit overrated.

    Arciaga took the openinground 1-1 by virtue of the lastpoint scored. He then fell behind3-0 in the second.

    In the deciding round, Arciagaexecuted a step-over move on theformer Pan Am champion andtook him to his back to knot the

    match before finally sealing thewin with a pin.

    Arciaga went on to defeat JoshBodnarchuk of Saskatoon 11-4in the semifinal, before bestingDignan for a second time in agold-medal final.

    Not bad for a young man whowon a bronze medal at 41 kg inhis first-ever competitive tourna-ment just three years ago.

    That event was the highly

    competitive Western Age Classchampionships.

    It was like an all-out rumblebetween little guys, rememberedArciaga of his Grade 8 debut intowrestling.

    I just took it like one tech-nique that I knew. I dont remem-ber what it was. I did one moveor take down and I did it overand over in that tournament, andthats how I earned the bronze.

    After that, he began train-ing with coach Frank Mensahat Raw Academy, a martial artsclub in East Vancouver. He alsowent out for the school teamat Burnaby South under coachDanny Einhorn.

    They taught me all the righttechniques and mentally how toreach my goals, Arciaga added.

    Hockey Giants still standing tall at Telus CupThe Northwest Giants are the

    only undefeated team left at theTelus Cup.

    The Giants fought back froma pair of one-goal leads to defeatthe host St. Johns Privateers4-3 at the Canadian nationalmidget hockey championshipsWednesday.

    First-year forward JacksonHouck tied the game 3-3 early inthe third period.

    Houck then set up SamReinhart for the game-winning

    tally six minutes later to give theGiants their slimmest margin ofvictory at the national champion-ships to date.

    The win gave the Burnaby-based club a 3-0 record.

    The Lions du Lac St-Louis arenext at 2-1.

    Burnaby faced the Quebecchampions Thursday (after NOWdeadlines).

    Alex Kerfoot, who earned hissecond consecutive player of thegame honour in the win, led offthe scoring against St. Johns withhis tournament-leading sixth goalof the championships.

    Kerfoot currently leads allscorers with 16 points in threegames, one less than Reinhart.Houck is next with six points.

    Joel Issigonis knotted the scoreat 2-2 midway through the mid-dle frame.

    Scott Legault chalked up hissecond win between the pipes forthe Giants.

    The Giants other keeper,Daniel Cotton, currently leads allgoalies with a sparkling 0.970save percentage while boasting a0.75 goals against average.

    After opening the competi-tion with a 12-5 pounding of

    west region champion WinnipegThrashers, the Giants thendumped the Atlantic champsHalifax Titans 6-1 on Tuesday.

    Kerfoot led the way with a hattrick in a five-point outing.

    Reinhart chipped in with hisfourth goal of the championshipsin the opening period.

    Sean Lan, Cam Marks andAlex McNeil also scored for thePacific region champions.

    To date, the Giants powerplay has been very effective, scor-ing 10 times in 17 opportunitieswith the extra man.

    The team has been even bet-

    ter killing penalties, allowing justtwo goals and stopping the com-bined opposition more than 81per cent of the time.

    The Giants finished off theround-robin against Centralchampion London Jr. Knights onFriday, also played after NOWdeadlines.

    The top four placing teamsface off in todays semifinals(Saturday).

    The medal games follow onthe Sunday, with the gold-medalcontest scheduled to be broad-cast on TSN at 11:30 a.m. Pacifictime.

    In the second game,MSB led 2-0 after fourinnings, but Leah Riskeand Durrant, with her sec-ond dinger of the day, bothconnected on solo homeruns to tie the score.

    Billings broke the tiewith a single down the leftfield line, spoiling CortneyMcCallums opportunity topost her first win of theseason.

    The following day, theClan split a doublehead-er with conference-lead-ing Western WashingtonUniversity.

    SFU dropped the opener11-3 before coming back towin the later game by a 13-5 score.

    Down 5-0 after the firstinning, SFU took the leadwith a five-hit, six-run bot-tom of the second inning.

  • But there is something more to Arciagathat goes beyond just the good student/good coach relationship.

    Arciaga was first enrolled into martialarts by his father to give his then 11-year-old son a fun activity to pursue.

    Fast forward to nextmonth, andArciagawill be competing this August at the PanAmerican championships in Mexico in hisfirst-ever international assignment as partof a Canadian wrestling team.

    But despite the talented teens meteoricrise in arguably one of the toughest indi-vidual sports on the planet, Arciaga is notabout to get ahead of himself.

    Arciagas goals continue to be modest,yet realistic.

    He wants to add a national juvenile titleto his mantel and maybe go to the juniornationals as a graduating senior.

    After that, the current honour roll stu-dent sees himself continuing on in wres-

    tling at either Simon Fraser University orDouglas College.

    The difference between the averagehigh school wrestler and one that wantsto continue on in the sport is goals, saidArciaga.

    I wrestle for a reason. When I wrestle,I know what Im wrestling for. Right now,Im wrestling for the Pan Ams, its prettybig.

    But when pressed further, Arciagaconcedes he has his own reward hispride.

    I want to go step by step and see whatthe next step is, he said. I hope I canbecause I dont think that you can win theOlympics tomorrow. You have to workyour way up there.

    Listening to Arciaga tell his story, Ihave no doubt that somewhere along longroad ahead of him, there is a stop in thatdirection.

    Tim Stephens' Astral Reections Apr. 24 - April 30 Aries March 21 - April 19: Delays end. You cancharge ahead on new fronts. Youve already entereda brand new world it is sleek, clear, alive, evennervous, and within this new world, friends, ideas,inventiveness and fun are more important thanmoney.Youre going to have fun Sunday to Tuesday and foreight years! Your freedom is growing. The shy, quiet,dreamy and elusive friends of the past decade fallaway, to be replaced by bright, sharp-minded types.This week, this peeling off causes a relationshipdisappointment. For the month ahead, chase money,seek higher earnings, cultivate new clients.Taurus April 20-May 20: Your energy, charismaand effectiveness rise strongly! The delays of Aprilhave ended. Start new projects, see and be seen,tackle chores that previously intimidated you.Despite this surge of energy, one part of you remainscontemplative, and is tied in to private matters, quietplanning sessions, government liaisons, etc. Yourreal break out will come in June, when a year ofhuge luck will commence! Meanwhile, be ambitiousSunday/Monday luck is with you. Watch legal,ethical factors all week. Change is needed here.Happiness midweek! Retreat, rest Friday/Saturday.Gemini May 21-June 20: Recent delays end,but indecision continues unless you make choicesbased on gentle love, foreign travel/contacts, cultureand intellectual pursuits, which all draw you nicelySunday to Tuesday. The weeks ahead emphasizerest, contemplation, solitude. Retreat, plan, prepareand fulfil obligations. Contact government agencies,institutions, charitable organizations. Your spiritualside grows and might become, June onward, asignificant relationship factor. If your hopes abouta special person are disappointed, alter lovegoals. Be ambitious Wednesday. Half happinesslate week.

    Cancer June 21-July 22: Your future looks bright!Optimism, new hopes, friends, wishes, entertainmentand light romance come waltzing in. Youll enjoy theweeks ahead even more so because your positionin the world is on the rise, your ambitions meet luck.Recent warnings about not starting anything neware now over. Sunday to Tuesday feature changes,big finances, commitments, sexual urges, lifestylechanges and health diagnosis, all productively. Apartner or competitor isnt thrilled with you, though,so proceed cautiously all week. Gentle love mightpoint to the right mate for you midweek!Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The emphasis for the nextfew weeks will be on ambition, prestige relationships,your status in the world. All looks fairly smoothhere, no big highs nor deep lows. Meanwhile, yourexpansion (usually lucky) in love, legal, intellectual,international and cultural zones continues, especiallyFriday/Saturday but work or health demands,or your caution, can interfere. Recent delays end,so charge ahead with new ideas, relationshipsand projects, especially Sunday to Tuesday,when exciting meetings and prospects arise!Research, financial and sexual commitments arefavoured midweek.Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A mellow, understandingvibe fills the weeks ahead. This promotes gentle love,far travel, intellectual pursuits, legal and culturalaffairs, education and publishing. Recent delaysdissolve; you no longer need to avoid new projects.Tackle chores Sunday to Tuesday everything runssmoothly. One caution: the first half of this weekmight cause a barrier in income zones, or a conflictbetween sexual desire and ethics. This continuesmore softly, workably the last half. You face differentrelationships now to 2025, in love, business, with thepublic think enchanted.

    Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of mystery,depths, investment, financial manoeuvres, intimacy,commitment, lifestyle changes, health diagnosis anddetective work lies ahead. Your life might change.Youre in a powerful and unpredictable relationshiptrend. So far (early 2011) this might have been moretalk than action, but this week and May could cementyou in the age-old way. Dont expect smooth sailingfor eight years but do expect excitement! Whateveroccurs this month could return in a hugely lucky wayJune 2011-June 2012. Romance, Sunday-Tuesday.But you must change! Security sabotages.Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The weeks aheademphasize relationships and opportunities. Bediplomatic, eager and willing. Dont stubbornly clingto an outmoded position, especially at work or inhealth areas. Recent delays and indecisiveness end charge ahead, especially on work and machineryfronts. A co-worker might oppose you, although theoppositions subtle, might exist between the linesin a conversation or email, etc. Youll win such astruggle, but might lose a friend: i.e., win the battle,lose the war. Be forgiving! Home, rest are both sweetSunday to Tuesday. Romance, beauty call midweek.Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Youre in the midst ofa lucky, pleasure-filled, scholastic, romantic, creativesurge! (January to June.) But the four weeks aheademphasize work, health, machinery, duties anddependents. Ah, well it will run smoothly, anyway.(Except, perhaps, for a wee struggle aroundmidweek when life dictates that you must choosebetween love and money with money exercisingthe most influence. This, of course, steers you backtoward work.) Recent delays and indecision passnow. Travel, errands and paperwork fill Sunday-Tuesday. Home, midweek. Romance late week sober, then strong!

    Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Recent delays end.Charge forward with new ventures, relationships andsituations. The weeks ahead emphasize romance,speculation, risks, good luck, children, beauty,creativity, pleasure and sports youll ride a winningstreak! You face a choice now: on one side are yourambition, your natural personality; on the otherlies love. If the love is in your home, you becomeprotective, nurturing. If the love is outside, youmight unconsciously press it, to end it. Chase moneySunday-Tuesday. Casual friends, talk, travel midweek.Home, security Friday/Saturday buy it!Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks aheadaccent security, domesticity, rest (hibernation)gardening, nutrition, soul, stomach, Mother Nature.Look over your retirement fund/plans, protect yourchildren and their future, repair the house, etc. Andsettle back every once in a while to observe whatyoure doing present interests and inclinationshold a clue to where the riches lie in a very luckyperiod on the horizon June 2011 to June 2012. Thattime might bring a new, better home, the end of anoppressive situation, a child, good things! Your energyand charisma rise nicely Sunday to Tuesday.Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Delays end so domistakes, and wrong-headed money decisions.If needed, correct, alter course now. If you need aguide, look at your long-term future, envision it,where you want to be, and reconsider, alter moneydirections to suit that future. This works best mid-week. The Thursday-Saturday period emphasizes aslightly different money trend: your earnings versusyour net worth, debts, ability to grow. (E.g., do Iwork for wages or start a business?) You might startsomething that will grow big in money areas! Retreatearly week. Your energy, charisma soar midweek.
