The meeting is, unusually, being held on a Thursday rather than the first Monday of the month (which would be Oct. 5) because election law prohibits meetings being held less than 30 days before an election. The meeting takes place at the Adessky Community Centre in Hampstead Park.

HAMPSTEAD CANDIDATES Hampstead?s website contains the list of candidates, as of Friday Sept. 25, running in the Nov. 1 election and the seats they are running for. The best known campaign is that of incumbent William Steinberg versus councillor David Sternthal for mayor. Councillor Abe Gonshor, part of Sternthal?s slate, is thus far running alone for Seat 1. Seat 2, vacated by outgoing councillor Clifford Borden, is being contested by Jack Edery and Sternthal slate member Dr. Philip Gordon. Councillor Leon Elfassy is thus far running alone for Seat 3 and councillor Michael Goldwax is in the same position for Seat 4. For Seat 5, incumbent Bonnie Feigenbaum is being challenged by Sternthal slate member Roz Bakst Gross. For Seat 6, Daniel Miller is thus far running alone ? the seat was vacated as a result of Sternthal?s mayoral candidacy. MOWEST ELECTION TIMETABLE Montreal West has released a timetable of the procedures involved in the Nov. 1 election, in which candidates for mayor and four council seats can be contested. ?Nomination papers must be filed at the office of the Returning Officer from Friday, Sept. 18, until Friday, Oct. 2 during regular office hours, and forms are available at the office of the Returning Officer,? says a town advisory. ?On Friday, Oct. 2, the office will be open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. without interruption.?

HARVEST DAY CANCELLED Hampstead announced that its annual Harvest Day, originally scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 4, has been cancelled due to a conflict with the holiday of Sukkoth. ?On another note, the Town is pleased to announce that its popular Haunted House is back again this year on Saturday, Oct. 31,? says a town announcement. ?Further details on Hampstead?s Haunted House will be announced in the following weeks.? ? Joel Goldenberg PAGE TWO 100 Years and going strong Even though he uses a walker, Irving Karassik just turned 100 years old and still manages to get to the Cte St. Luc Senior Men?s Club to attend the Thursday morning breakfast meeting. At the meeting he was presented with a plaque commemorating his hundredth birthday and for his services to the community as well as to the club. Irving was one of the charter members of the club and has been a volunteer at the Mt. Sinai Hospital and at one point during his long membership in the club, he was honored as the Man Of The Year. Photo shows, left to right: Irving Karassik as he listens to Ted Baker, president of the Senior Men?s Club, read the inscription on the plaque. PHOTO BY: JACK FRANK HAMPSTEAD COUNCIL Cont?d from page 1 returns for a performance in Montreal. But despite all of Kiss? pyrotechnics, the Hampstead meeting promises to have more fireworks. As has been reported in The Suburban in recent weeks, the meetings have featured ferocious debates among council members and between council members and the audience on Hampstead?s finances ? the subject of numerous letters to the editor of The Suburban in recent weeks. Another issue that has gained coverage in the wider media was a council vote ? vetoed by Steinberg ? to fire lawyer Julius Grey from defending Hampstead in a dog run case because of his support for mayoral candidate Louise Harel. Previous attempts were made to fire Grey because of his friendship with Steinberg. Also debated was the manner in which a Hampstead civil servant was hired. Even councillor Clifford Borden, who is not running for re-election, was grilled on various issues.

All rights reserved. meetings, the eyes of supporters of both sides are on the newspaper, demanding a certain type of coverage. ?We expect a free press,? said one partisan council regular to The Suburban after the especially contentious September meeting. Another partisan audience member wondered how The Suburban decides which Hampstead issues get in the paper. There have been surreal moments. A teenager, prompted by her mother who was standing right beside her during question period, demanded answers from some council members on various issues. Before some could get three words out of their mouth, the teenager insisted: ?You?re not answering my question!? The atmosphere at a recent meeting resulted in a call to police because of a resident who refused to sit down during question period ? the resident ended up cooperating. On Oct. 1, the debate on Hampstead?s finances will likely reach a crescendo as it is anticipated by that time that Steinberg will have released a response to Sternthal?s contention earlier this month that the town is in a financial crisis. The mayor has insisted, based on the town?s own auditors, that Hampstead is in good financial shape.

Svigny, Samantha St. Jules, Kevin Woodhouse Possible spice to the meeting could be added if an open letter from council candidate Jack Edery is heeded. He has suggested that Steinberg and Sternthal invite Hampstead external auditor Jocelyne Poirier of Goudreau Poirier to tomorrow?s meeting. ?I have spoken to Mme Poirier myself and she has agreed that if invited by council she will gladly attend and present her findings,? he wrote. ?Mme Poirier should present to the entire town in a transparent and plain manner the financials of the town. Once she has concluded her presentation the floor should be opened to all concerned parties to question the auditor on her report. Let the experts discuss this in an open forum with the electorate judge. A clear and open discussion of the facts will serve the town better than partisan bickering by non-experts using selected information.? But if the last few meetings are any indication, partisan bickering could reach a new height tomorrow. That?s why even non-residents of Hampstead should consider attending what could be an exciting, wild, if long (meetings are now ending at midnight) show. Just don?t wear your Kiss makeup.

    NEWS AND ANALYSIS CDN violence going unreported? Filipino community group sounds alarm, criticizes cops By Dan Delmar The Suburban Kabataang Montreal, a Filipino youth group based in Cte des Neiges, is expressing concern over what they say is a rise in violence in the past month. But Montreal police are baffled by the announcement; they have no record of the incidents. At a press conference last week, Kabataang?s position was that ?several Filipino youth have been involved in fights and were hospitalized as a result,? according to a statement. Spokesperson Neil Castro told The Suburban that he?s seen an escalation of tensions between Filipino youth and other south-Asian ethnic groups in Cte des Neiges, but could not point to any statistics or police reports to back up his concerns. Part of the problem, Castro said, is that the young adults involved in fights are weary Singing to health of Montreal police and would prefer not to deal with them. ?Tensions have been rising over the summer,? he said, pointing to a lack of support for the Filipino youth community in the borough, which he refers to as ?systemic racism. There are a lot of immigrant communities in Cte des Neiges in a densely-populated area. Many communities are sharing the same space.? Castro went further, saying that police officers routinely ?harass? Filipino youth, ?just for being Filipino and being at the wrong place, at the wrong time? They show their presence by parking their cruisers in front of basketball courts and driving through parks.? SPVM Station 26 Cmdr. Simonetta Barth defended her officers, saying that having a presence in the borough has nothing to do with racial profiling, but good police work. ALL YOU CAN EAT! Includes: salad bar, shrimp and other seafood, roasts, brochettes, grilled food, dessert counter and much, much more. ?What?s wrong with that? It?s our job to be visible when there are activities going on. It has nothing to do with intimidation,? Barth said, annoyed that no one from Kabataang alerted her to a problem or filed a complaint before last week?s press conference. ?It would be wise for Mr. Castro or other members of Kabataang to alert police before the situation gets worse.? Barth encouraged Filipino community leaders to come forward to discuss problems with her and said the lack of documented reports of the alleged incidents may not necessarily be the result of a distrust of police officers. ?It likely has a lot to do with intimidation,? Barth said. ?Some people are scared of reprisals. But my door is always open. I?ve extended an invitation to Mr. Castro, but he hasn?t gotten back to me yet; I know he?s very busy with interviews?? n On Saturday, more than 400 people attended Sing to Health, a musical celebration at McGill University?s Pollack Concert Hall featuring the Panday Tinig Choral Ensemble. The concert was organized by Montreal?s Filipino community and raised over $5,000 for the McGill University Health Centre?s The Best Care for Life campaign to create modern hospital campuses.

Businesswoman Nathalie LeProhon, meanwhile, switches over to Jeanne-Le Ber (which includes Verdun) and prepares to challenge Bloc Qubecois incumbent Thierry St-Cyr. Word had it that Coderre wanted to replace three other Liberal MPs ? Bernard Patry in Pierrefonds-Dollard, Raymonde Folco in Laval les les and Lise Zarac in LaSalle-Emard. But after the Outremont fiasco that scenario may be very unlikely, which is too bad. Coderre needs to find some safe seats for star candidates.

    NEWS & ANALYSIS Westmount gets $20 million to build new pool-arena complex By P.A. Svigny The Suburban Last Sunday, in Westmount?s city hall, local MNA Jacques Chagnon announced Westmount would be getting a $20 million grant to help pay for its new $35 million sports complex. ?I?m not pleased?? said Chagnon. ?I?m delighted to give you this good news.? During his short speech, Chagnon described the moment when he took a walk through Westmount Park with Westmount Mayor Karin Marks and city councilor Nichole Forbes. When they came upon the city?s old arena art blocking off the end of Academy Road, they began to discuss the possibility of building a new complex to replace the city?s already obsolescent facilities. ?Put together a project,? he told them, THE ONLY ?and I will see what I can do.? Five years later, Marks said the city owes a lot to Chagnon?s hard work and his diligent attention to details because nothing could have been done without his help. As matters stand, Marks said she hopes Westmount?s new mayor and the city?s councilors will finally approve the city?s much-discussed plan so shovels can go into the ground by next spring. ?What a wonderful day,? said an effusive Marks. While she was generous with praise and thanked both the federal and provincial governments for their help, she also took the time to thank all those who worked so hard to ?provide healthy options for the city?s future generations.?

With a few well-chosen remarks, Mayor Marks praised Hamilton?s efforts to earn LEED (Leading Energy and Environmental Design) certification and especially praised his efforts to fully integrate the new complex into the park?s natural setting. ?I think this new design answers many of the questions expressed at the two previous information meetings and I believe it [Hamilton?s new plan] is up to the city?s standards and its expectations,? she said. After a brief introduction, architect Robert Hamilton used a power-point presentation to describe the changes done to the project?s original plans. As expected, the entrance to the building?s underground parking will now be located off Lansdowne Avenue.

Hamilton?s effort to integrate the project?s buildings into the greater context of the park has created a setting where people can feel comfortable and take control of their own environment. Due to concerns expressed by many citizens during the two previous public consultations, Marks said Hamilton and his team had to take a step back in order to consider their project with a ?fresh set of eyes.?

Garneau replied by pointing out that Ignatieff is now slowly starting to talk policy during events across the country, namely with regards to foreign affairs and the economy. He said many policies will only be released during an election campaign, to prevent their opponents from either copying the ideas or having the time to formulate an elaborate rebuttal. Some prominent local MPs were in attendance, including Mount Royal MP Irwin Cotler, NDG MP Marlene Jennings, her predecessor Warren Allmand, Bourassa MP and Quebec Lieutenant Denis Coderre and Westmount-Ville Marie riding association president and national party vice-president Brigitte Garceau.

    NEWS & ANALYSIS MoWest: Stuart leaves, Masella runs By Joel Goldenberg The Suburban Montreal West mayor Campbell Stuart announced last week that he will not be running for re-election, while councillor Beny Masella has announced that he is running for the mayoralty. Stuart has been Montreal West?s first mayor since demergers of suburbs took place in early 2006. His tenure has included the massive infrastructure work currently underway in Montreal West, demands; problems with the town?s financial situation as a result of City of Montreal overspending, prompting his and the town?s demand for compensation from Montreal or Quebec City; planned and major urban planning changes, especially in the Westminster commercial area; and the battle with neighboring Lachine and some of its residents over Montreal West?s barrier near the area known as Devil?s Hill. Stuart, a lawyer by profession, told The Suburban last week that in 2005, ?I made an undertaking to my [law] partners that I would be gone, part time, for four years. And I was gone, virtually full time, for four years. I wanted to honour the commitment that I made to them. They were very understanding and generous about it.? Stuart said he is pleased with the progress the town has made in the last four years. ?It was an interesting and sometimes dif- Poissonnerie Chasse-Mare Cobia DESCRIPTION Nutritional Information and Simple suggested recipes Cobia is also among the most highly-prized recreational species in many countries. It is a very tasty fish. Moreover, different parts of Cobia have different combination of fat and moisture contents and therefore offer variety of tastes. Cobia can be served raw as sashimi and can also be fried, boiled, steamed or cooked in soups. Cooked Cobia has snowy white flesh with a delicate taste, and is comparable to the round flavor Swordfish, or the exquisite Chilean Sea Bass. The Chefs in the US have recently added Cobia to the seafood ingredient selection. Cobia can be fried, boiled, steamed or cooked with soups. Some chefs believe that it is best cooked in steak form.

Stuart also said Masella has his ?entire support? for the mayoralty. ?He?s a very hard worker, a very good negotiator and conciliator, he?s a details guy and understands the issues in the town. There will be lots of continuity. He?s behind all the major projects we?ve worked so hard on for the past four years, and he?s up to speed on them. I have a huge amount of confidence in his ability to move things forward. ?My leaving is a bit of a wrench in some ways, but it?s nice to see that there?s some real horsepower coming up behind.? Masella, a pharmacist by profession, was first elected to town council in a by-election after the departure of former councillor Dino Mazzone. Masella handles the public security portfolio on council, and is also involved with councillor Joseph McKenzie on the public works dossier. ?I am proud of what council has accomplished during this mandate,? Masella said in an e-mail to The Suburban. ?It made a huge step in the process of rebuilding this town from the quagmire left by the merger/demerger. Under Campbell?s leadership, the town made some great inroads and he was able to raise our profile island wide.

Now, the borough is following up with two more phases of roadwork to be conducted this fall and next year. Montreal?s executive committee awarded a $2.8 million contract to Les Pavages Dorval Inc. for the first phase, taking place on a section between Poirier and Henri Bourassa, towards the northern limit of St. Laurent. The second phase of the project will cost $6 million, takes place next spring and summer, and will involve the area between Poirier and Cte Vertu. According to a borough announcement, the work involves ?the reconstruction of the roadway, as well as the sidewalks, central medians, islands, lighting bases and underground wiring. Special attention will be paid, among other things, to the connection between the boulevard and the bicycle path between Poirier and St. Exupry, including the bicycle path crossing at the intersection of St. Exupry and boulevard Marcel Laurin, and at the MASELLA Cont?d from page 9 ?I would like to focus our attention on local issues so that we can polish this gem that is Montreal West to its former brilliance. With council?s support, I would like to continue with many of our current priorities: ? ?With the continued support from different levels of government, we need to finish the job of solidifying our infrastructure. I believe that this should continue to be our first priority.? ? ?We are close to a contract with our blue collar employees ? I believe we can reach an agreement with them soon. As we have already signed with our white collar employees, we will not have to concern ourselves with negotiations for a long time.

Marcel Laurin intersection, which will be rebuilt while taking into consideration the bicycle path crossing located north of Thimens, and at the Marcel Laurin ? Henri-Bourassa intersection, which will be reworked in accordance with the boulevard Cavendish extension project. ?The work will also include the improvement of the vegetation in the area, with landscaping integrated into the central medians where permitted by prevailing conditions.? Borough mayor Alan DeSousa said the new roadwork shows that Montreal ?is reiterating the importance it places on this strategic artery that crosses the St. Laurent territory.? ?These two new phases will complement the work, valued at $15.7 million, already carried out on Marcel Laurin between 2005 and 2008 alone. I am also thrilled that the work will satisfy the sustainable development objectives outlined in our Urban Forestry Plan and our local Transportation Plan by enhancing vegetation and bicycle paths.? As work is set to begin, the borough will be releasing information regarding local traffic and contact numbers for residents to call regarding the projects. n ? ?I would like complete the work we have started to make our streets safer for pedestrians. The next step in that process is the design and implementation of solutions to make the cross walks safer on Westminster.? Masella said other issues would include ?overall parking in the town, continuing the recent advances we have made in the quality of town services to residents and defining the needs our residents have for affordable seniors housing in Montreal West.? McKenzie said he is running for one more term. ?In the first mandate, we put in place a plan for the next 10 to 15 years,? he said. ?Hopefully we will be able to continue meeting the objectives of this plan and modify it where necessary.? n Discover a pleasant activity with multiple benefits and available to all.
