WWW.DESSOURCES.COM By Dan Delmar The Suburban The debate on how to honour iconic Montreal writer Mordecai Richler has begun; but in certain circles, the debate is focused on preventing Richler's name from being honoured at all. Côte des Neiges-NDG borough mayor Michael Applebaum and city councillor * Brand New 1-888-273-2033 Marvin Rotrand initiated a petition recently and hope to persuade city officials to name something after Richler ahead of the 10th anniversary of his passing next July.

'In two weeks, we'll close' Park Ave. merchant may not survive roadwork By Dan Delmar The Suburban For the owners of the new Tasse Gamine café on Park Ave., last week was rough, to say the least. Businesses on the Mile End artery are already suffering because of an ongoing road infrastructure overhaul project that will continue into the new year; parking is limited and access to their storefronts is obstructed by excavation crews, machinery and fencing. Open since June, the coffee shop has found a niche market with young families in the area by catering to young children and toddlers - with stroller parking and all. But the business is being threatened, co-owner April Defalco told The Suburban, by thousands of dollars in damage caused by a city contractor. "On Monday, we had no water. On Wednesday, there was a gas leak (after a worker ruptured the line).

    2 * THE SUBURBAN, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2010 Around the Towns REPLAY EXHIBIT AT CSL LIBRARY The works of Montreal artist Sarah Bertrand-Hamel will be on display at the Eleanor London Library Art Gallery until Dec. 12, the city announced last week. "The exhibit, entitled Replay, includes a series of images that encourages one to re-examine the concepts of perception, reality and deconstruction," says the announcement. "The artist's work demonstrates how image manipulation and the process of repetition can modify the original meaning and context in which an image is presented. She questions the notions of observation, cognitive recognition and designation. Her work involves both discerning reality and deconstructing evidence. For more information, call the library at 514-485- 6900 or visit www.elcslpl.org. CSL 45+ BASKETBALL TEAM LEAGUE Côte St. Luc announced that a "new league is forming for basketball players age 45 and older. The games take place at the Côte St. Luc Gymnasium (7500 Mackle Rd.) on Tuesday nights from 8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Four teams of eight players are needed for the program to operate. "The league features a 15-game schedule plus one playoff game guaranteed for each team; online stats, game recaps, schedules and pictures operated through www.ak-rec.com; professional referees and scorekeepers at every game; reversible mesh jerseys for every player and trophies and free basketball for each member of championship winning team; and same-day e-mail reminders of game times." The cost is $1,680 per team, which includes eight player jerseys. The start date is "as soon as all four teams, and the eight-man roster is set.

PAGE TWO Community remembers Kristallnacht By Joel Goldenberg The Suburban Members of the community gathered last week at Côte St. Luc's Beth Israel Beth Aaron Synagogue to mark the 72nd anniversary of Kristallnacht, the 1938 Nazi-organized pogrom against Jews in retaliation for the assassination of a German diplomatic official. The event was organized by the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre, and attended by municipal, provincial, federal and diplomatic representatives. With a backdrop of photographs of synagogue burnings in Germany and Austria, along with pre-Hitler scenes of Jewish life in Europe, a candle was lit by survivor Leo Dortort, violinist Benjamin Stolow and the Bialik High School choir directed by Lorna Smith provided sombre music and there were readings in English, French, Yiddish and Hebrew. "We call upon every free person to join us in remembering," said Israeli consul Avraham Lev-Louis. "Unfortunately, 72 years later... there are still those in civil society who openly espouse anti-Semitism and deny the Holocaust ever took place. Deniers like Iranian president Ahmadinejad even dream of wiping our people's one and only state off the face of the earth. We also fight to have our legitimacy as a Jewish state recognized internationally." Survivor Ursula Feist told of her experience growing up in Berlin during the MERCHANT Cont'd from page 1 and led all of our clients out the back alley," Defalco said. Then came the icing on the cake: "On Thursday, it was the flood. The vibrations from a jackhammer broke our drain." Defalco said she hasn't been able to get compensation from the city and has already sent out a lawyer's letter. The drain problem caused an estimated $14,000 in damage and the private contractor, she said, is disputing the repairs costs and won't help her out either.

"We must be aware and never forget that Kristallnacht happened in a country that was considered civilized, the country of Beethoven, Goethe and so many others," she said. "It seemed inconceivable that an evil monster managed to create a living hell in a short time - 12 years - and found enough enthusiastic disciples to go along with him. He did, and that is scary." Rabbi Reuben Poupko said the community must raise its voice wherever into the basement locale, she explained. "It took three days before they even said it was related to them (and the construction work). The city told us to make a reclamation, so we did." The owners then went to speak with a special liaison officer who, last month, was shipped to a Park Ave. storefront to field complaints from merchants and residents.

"But we also have to remember the Jewish lessons, to make sure our homeland is secure, that people cannot propagate lies against us," Rabbi Poupko added. Father John Walsh said that when the community remembers Kristallnacht, "we do not only recall the past, but we look forward to a covenant of our God, the God of Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists, people of faith and good will, for all of us to scream 'never again.'"n closed, she added, emphasizing that she realizes that the work is "necessary. But I don't want this to be like St. Laurent where everyone goes out of business." The Main underwent a second round of infrastructure repairs in as many years in 2008 when Gaz Métro delayed underground upgrading work until after the city of Montreal had completed their project; the street had to be dug up and some merchants were not able to weather the storm. "If this takes a long time to resolve, we'll lose the business," Defalco said, holding back tears. "And we've worked too hard to lose it."n Editorial Contributors: Maria I.

    NEWS AND ANALYSIS St. Laurent exports careers program westward By Joel Goldenberg The Suburban A borough of St. Laurent program that encourages career opportunities in several types of industries has been expanded to the West Island. A press conference was held Friday at Dorval-Jean XXIII School to announce the unified effort by the borough, St. Laurent Economic Development and West Island Economic Development/CLD to promote "My career, my choice," (Ma carrière, mon choix) directed at Secondary III and IV students at the Dorval school. At the launch were St. Laurent mayor Alan DeSousa, Dorval-Jean XXIII executive director Patrice Brisebois, Michel Desbiens of Economic Development St. Laurent, Roger Morin of the West Island CLD and Diane Lamarche- Venne of the Marguerite Bourgeoys School Board. DeSousa told The Suburban that three years ago, the borough, which has numerous industries, "recognized that there were needs in the community that had to be met. "We saw that because of demographics, there was a declining amount of qualified people to work in our 3,500 industries on our territory, particularly in trades that are high-tech, whether RICHLER Cont'd from page 1 with the Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste (SSJB) and its president, Mario Beaulieu. "I don't think it's a good idea in Quebec because Mr. Richler created many divisions," Beaulieu told The Canadian Press. "For us, he's an anti-Quebec racist because he denigrated French Quebecers." Beaulieu pointed to Richler's criticism of historical figures in Quebec, like Lionel Groulx, and the author's writing in general, which paints "a portrait of Quebec that's not right, that's not accurate." (except civic days & holidays) Michel Desbiens of Economic Development St. Laurent (left) and Roger Morin of the West Island CLD . they be welding, or in computers," DeSousa explained. "We recognized that we need to ensure that the companies in our community can find qualified labour for them to be competitive and to make their region competitive." DeSousa added that some students in high schools are just not aware of the career options in the marketplace. "We see it regularly across the province that there are high dropout rates, so we thought 'why not do something that will bring the two together - meet the needs of the companies but also tell our kids in the community what the opportunities are.'" The program twins companies Rotrand dismissed the criticism and said that the most important question is not if Richler should be honoured, but how. The city's director general, Louis Roquet, has already expressed his support of the idea, Rotrand said, and has passed the dossier along to the Toponymy Commission. The tribute will have to be "acceptable to the Richler family and it has to unite Montrealers," he added. "There have been a plethora of recommendations. The number one is: Name a library after him. Others suggested to create a book prize in his name; a monument; a park...There are a lot of ideas to with schools. Representatives of the companies visit particular schools to talk about what they have to offer, and provide guided tours of the companies to invited students. "People who worked in the companies were thrilled to be able to share what they did in life with the young kids, and the kids opened their eyes and were able to say 'this is something I can do,'" the mayor said. "We have been able to reach well over 2,000 kids, and it was a real success. We thought this was too good to limit it to St. Laurent. What we're passing onto the West Island and hopefully other communities is a program that works."n look at." NDG's new Benny Library would not be the ideal choice, Rotrand said, because Richler was a fixture in the Plateau Mont Royal borough. The Gazette's Bill Brownstein recently suggested that Fairmount Ave. be renamed after Richler. The petition comes as Richler's work is again being highlighted in media with a new biography, Mordecai, by Charles Foran, and a new film adaptation of his novel, Barney's Version, set to be released next month.

The all-female crowd were hand- By Abby. E. Schachter The Suburban Mike Cohen Famed novelist Mordecai Richler put Montreal on the map in many ways. Now, nearly a decade after his death, his works are resurfacing on the big screen. A younger generation of Montrealers are being reintroduced to a man who helped mold Canadian literature; and city councillors Marvin Rotrand and Micheal Applebaum want to make sure he is remembered. The idea is to "honour Richler's name in a concrete memorable fashion. For instance re-naming a street, park, Metro station or public library after the novelist. However, Applebaum and Rotrand want Montrealers to decide on the appropriate action. How can we honour Mordecai Richler's legacy? In a recent article, a local David Booly ed gift bags, including books, makeup, scarves, coffee mugs and an array of gift certificates. COHEN CHATTER: Former Montrealer Elizabeth Margles was recently named the vice- president of marketing and communications for Porter Airlines. She oversees all brand marketing, including advertising, web, loyalty programs, destination marketing and PR and public affairs. Previously, she was the vice-president of marketing for Loblaw's. Elizabeth is a former TMR resident and the daughter of former broadcaster and TMR Councillor Sidney Margles...The owners of the Buffalo Bills chicken wings chain are behind the new Jukebox Restaurant at Marche de l'Ouest in Dollard... A follow up to last week's journalist suggested that Fairmount Ave, near Wilensky's could easily be renamed after Richler. He added that people would not be too bothered by the change. This idea sparked some curiosity and as a result, The Suburban decided to find out. We asked Montrealers who live in the Fairmount area, how they felt about the idea and whether they thought it was an appropriatecommemoration. "I would prefer that they do not change the name," said Valerie Voyeur "There is a reason why there is a Clark Street and a Fairmount Street...there is history there." Voyeur said that she would be upset if the city did choose to rename Fairmount after Richler.

Montrealers say : 'Rename Lionel-Groulx or some other metro station but leave our streets alone...!' Valerie Voyeur wouldn't be happy either. I'm fine with the city renaming a metro station; but not a street." Char (who wished to keep his last name anonymous ) says that he doesn't really care. "I haven't given it much thought. I don't think I'd have a problem with renaming a street corner after Richler. It's fine with me." However Jo Codero felt that it would be a good idea to name an unidentified corner instead. "There are so many streets and corners and parks with no names! I've lived here for 40 years, that would be changing the history. As for renaming a metro station, go See HONOUR, page 12 ST.

The byelection is being held in the Côte de Liesse district to replace Laval Demers, the Union Montreal councillor who died suddenly in mid-September. Francesco Miele is running for the ruling Union Montreal party, Bryce Durafourt is running for Project Montréal and there are two independents - Guy Hébert and Jean-Luc Poulin. Harel touted the fact her candidate has lived in St. Laurent since 1992, and is fluent in French, English and Arabic and is even learning German. Dakdouk says the issue for him is not power, but listening to the people. "The issue now is to have a new, strong independent voice," Harel said. "This is missing in St. Laurent." Dakdouk said that he is listening to what residents have to say during the campaign.

    NEWS & ANALYSIS Finestone: Defending freedom is necessary "It may be 1938 all over again" By Joel Goldenberg The Suburban Col. Bernard (B.J.) Finestone is a fixture at annual remembrances of Canada's war fallen and a regular speaker to students about his experiences as a battle captain in Europe. Finestone, who is 90 but looks about 20 years younger, was captain of a tank squadron. He was in England during the German Blitz and then fought in Italy for nearly a year. During a battle for Rome on May 31, 1944, he was wounded in 40 places by an eight-millimetre shell and was in a military hospital for more than three years. Finestone's entry into the military was not easy for him, either. In 1937, he was part of a McGill University peace movement which had just voted not to defend their country in case of war, but his father was urging him to join the Canadian Officer Training Corps. "I said 'if I do, my friends won't talk to me,'" Finestone recalled. "My father said 'I was in the Canadian Army in World War I and I was a sergeant, and you'll like being an officer much better.' Obviously, he was right. By the time war broke out, I qualified as a lieutenant infantry and artillery. Being Jewish, I thought it was incumbent for me to volunteer, so when they asked for Colonel Okill Stewart's day on the beach By P.A. Sévigny The Suburban While the 6th of June, 1944 will always be considered to be one of the seminal dates of the 20th century's historical narrative, Okill Stewart's memories of the D-Day invasion are far more personal. The old soldier still recalls how the Normandy beaches were covered with the dead and the dying as his tank began to make its way across the sand and into the tiny coastal village of Courseuilles sur Mer. As the modern armada would include more than 1,200 fighting ships, 4,000 assault craft, 13,000 aircraft, 1,600 Finestone with his wife Rita. volunteers to go to the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry, I went. At 19, they told me I was too young for a permanent regiment, but a year later, a general came in looking for volunteers to come into the armored corps, which was being established for the first time after what happened to the British in France. They took me in on Jan. 11, 1941." Overseas by September 1941, Finestone trained for two years in England while defending the Brighton waterfront. He then fought in many battles in Italy, ending in Rome where he was wounded. In light of this, Finestone would merchant vessels, two artificial harbors and eventually more than 3.5 million soldiers, the D-Day invasion is still considered to be one of the logistical miracles of the modern world. But as far as Stewart is concerned, it's still the cold, wet morning when a submerged mine blew off the front of his landing craft in only six feet of water after which a second mine blew a Bren gun carrier and its crew out of the water and into the sky before it finally landed on the beach never to move again. "You know," he recalls telling a friend who NEW STORE PHOTO COURTESY BERNARD FINESTONE be the last to say fighting a war is something to strive for. "We have a bad habit of glorifying war, war is not glorious," he says. "It may be glorious to the guys in the back, but not for the guys in the front lines. And only 15 percent of the army ever saw actual combat. Those in the back, who kept the lines of communication open and brought the ammunition, may have some nice stories to tell, but the guy who went to fight, you won't find one who will say combat was anything other than horrible." On the other hand, Finestone says defending freedom is ultimately necessary, and he sees signs today of the potential need to do so again. "Nineteen thirty-eight and the year 2010 sound very much alike," he warns. "Except instead of Hitler, it's Ahmadinejad [in Iran]. It's the same story, the same objective, except this time we have an Israel to defend as well as ourselves. This is in my considered opinion. "I've thought of it a great deal, I only left the army three years ago as a colonel. I'm very much in tune with what's going on. Believe me, this is 1938 all over again, which means the people you're talking to are confronting what confronted me and may end up doing what I did.

NEWS & ANALYSIS Second meeting for new CSL high school By Joel Goldenberg The Suburban The English Montreal School Board is holding a second meeting with parents on a possible new Côte St. Luc public high school, board chairman Angela Mancini announced this week. The meeting will be held Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m. at the Côte St. Luc city hall auditorium, and is a follow-up to a meeting held last month on the same subject. This time, Mancini said, the board will meet parents of students entering Grade 7 next year to see if there is a critical mass to begin operations in 2011- 2012. "A decision to move forward with a Grade 7 only school for 2011-2012 would first require us to follow the consultation process," said Mancini. EMSB commissioner Syd Wise, chair of a focus commission looking into new school projects, said that if a new school opens in 2011, "it would cohabitate with both the Marymount Adult Education Centre and John Grant High School at the Palatucci Facility" on Parkhaven Avenue. Wagar which occupied the building, closed in 2005.

    NEWS & ANALYSIS Tempo garage bylaw unlikely this winter: CSL's Housefather By Joel Goldenberg The Suburban Côte St. Luc will consider allowing the installation of temporary garages for residents with sloping driveways, but that decision is unlikely to be made in time for this winter, Mayor Anthony Housefather told residents Jay Rubinstein and Liliane Abitbol. Some municipalities ban or restrict tempos because they are thought to be unsightly - Côte St. Luc allows them for homes without garages. Rubinstein had approached the council last year on this issue on behalf of himself and a neighbour recovering from cancer surgery. At the October Côte St. Luc council meeting, Rubinstein said he was told that the city needed more information, "that there were some objections and possible legalities involved favouring one type of person over another" in terms of making exceptions. Rubinstein said a bylaw should be passed for people with sloping driveways, not necessarily because of age or illness. He added that "because of the slope of my driveway, I cannot extricate my car after a snowfall to allow a private service to clear the driveway. "If we are to believe the 'anecdotal' evidence that the majority of citizens would oppose such shelters, it sounds like a case of 'not in my back yard. If even 20 citizens are helped in winter, it should be worth it. The shelters cause no one any harm or damage." Housefather said he appreciated Rubinstein's perspective. "Council is waiting for our city clerk to look into certain matters and it will come back to another in-committee agenda," the mayor said. "We can certainly say [allow a tempo] for a house that does not have a garage or has a slope over a certain percentage. But understand, when you say that, what if we choose that the [slope] percentage is seven percent Holiday Special WHOLE SMOKED TURKEY average 6 kg "Fully cooked and seasoned with the finest blends of ingredients and packaged in controlled atmosphere for lasting freshness" 7070, St-Patrick $ 5.00 Pick-up between 9:00 am and 4:30 pm From December 8 th to December 31 st Ville La Salle (QC) 514.367.1654 and your driveway slope is four percent? You won't be eligible anyway. We have discussed this at a very, very long meeting, we waited for more information and we're asking our city clerk to get more information. "We will revisit it." The mayor also said that it would not be legal to allow tempos on the basis of the age of the homeowner. "Or we would have to find a different way than the way we were thinking of. There's always creative solutions." Resident Liliane Abitbol pointed out that this year's winter is imminent. "I am desperate," she said. "My husband had two cancers in a few years. He cannot do anything. I am the one doing everything.... I can't shovel and the guy who shovels our driveway, he's never here when we need him. I don't sleep, thinking about the fact the winter's coming and nothing is being done." Housefather said he understands her situation, that there is no room for another car in her garage and that her driveway's slope is big and that this would be a problem for her and others. The mayor added that from the perspective of the entire city, many residents do not think any tempos should be permitted. He also said most area municipalities, except for Laval and the City of Montreal itself and its boroughs, do not allow tempos. "There's no chance this winter?" Abitbol asked. "For our bylaw to be adopted, there has to be a certain period of time for a notice of meetings and bylaws," Housefather said. "If we were making an immediate decision and we were looking at it not snowing until January, maybe. Right now, we will move as quickly as we can to come up with an answer. Once there is that answer, there is a legal process that takes place if we decide to move forward with any change. "I haven't said no.

    Make a stink on Parmalat: MoWest's Mazzone By Joel Goldenberg The Suburban Montreal West councillor Dino Mazzone urged resident Brian Hession of Brock South to "make a stink" about the Parmalat plant's ongoing construction of a distribution centre where trucks will load up overnight. Hession, a new resident of the town, asked about the dairy plant, which is just outside Montreal West on St. Jacques West in NDG. Mayor Beny Masella said the company took over the old Salvation Army Home to build a "huge" distribution centre. "That part scares me, when you use the word huge," Hession remarked. "Unfortunately, that's the right word," Masella replied. Hession asked what the town will do about light and noise pollution in the area. "I can assure you, what has been done already is grossly inadequate," the resident said. Masella said the resident would have to take the issue up with Côte des Neiges/NDG council. "It is not Montreal West, and I really don't have a right to say to them, 'you have to put up a 12-foot wall,'" the mayor said. "The wall is fairly high." Hession said Parmalat put up a wall, 10 * THE SUBURBAN, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2010 NEWS & ANALYSIS but bordering on Highway 20. "We have these lights beaming into our backyard..." "Wait until the sound starts, when the trucks are beeping and backing up at night," Masella warned. "I'm being very honest, there is very little the town can do." Councillor Elizabeth Ulin pointed out that the town received a legal opinion on the matter, confirming there was nothing the town could do. "We did look into it, because we're just as horrified as you should be," said Mazzone. Hession said, in this light, residents will have to consider contesting their recent property valuations, and thus pay less in tax. Masella encouraged this. Mazzone agreed, and said residents should take the matter to Quebec's Administrative Tribunal if there is a lack of success in changing the property eval- In celebration of our 5th anniversary and to mark the introduction of the "Fortissimo Scholarship Fund" we are pleased to invite you to a spectacular afternoon of classical music... uation.
