Flu bug hits the island By P.A. Sévigny The Suburban As yet another flu virus begins to make its way through the city, hospital emergency rooms are filling to capacity as the bug begins to take its toll. While flu numbers usually reach their peak by mid-January, this year's flu came early which is why the city's emergency rooms were overwhelmed during the holiday season. "People didn't get vaccinated in time to develop their immunities," said Lorraine Bouvier. As a Director of Nursing Services for Côte St. Luc's Réné Cassin CSST, Bouvier said there's still time to get vaccinated because while everybody is vulnerable, some are more vulnerable than others. "As usual, the old, the young and the chronically ill are more affected than others," said Bouvier. "But it's still a virus and there's nothing much you can do except to stay home, drink plenty of fluids and take some aspirin." While many still confuse a common cold with the flu, there is a big difference between the two. While a runny nose, sore throat and a cough are usually the normal symptoms of a common cold, a fever combined with a pounding See FLU BUG, page 8 THE SUBURBAN'S THREE EDITIONS - CITY, WEST ISLAND AND EAST END - HAVE REACHED A TOTAL CIRCULATION OF 145,000 COPIES! 6435 Saint-Jacques West Montreal, corner Cavendish www.hyundaiprestige.com (514)252-7777 TM The Hyundai names, logos, product names, feature names, images and slogans are trademarks own by Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. � Annual purchase financing rate upon approval by Hyundai Financial Services on the 2011 Accent L 3dr, 5-speed manual transmission, from $11,509.

Residents in multi-family dwellings (including townhouses) should put their Christmas trees at the curb on the day of the brown bin (organics) collection in their area - even if their building doesn't yet have brown bin (organics) collection." For more information, call Côte St. Luc's public works department at 514-485-6868. CLASSES FULL FOR CSL COMPUTER COURSES Côte St. Luc announced on its website calendar that classes are already full for the Jan. 21, Jan. 28, Feb. 4, Feb. 11, Feb. 18 and Feb. 25 sessions of the Intro to Computers and E-mail class. The next classes will start April 28. NEXT HAMPSTEAD MEETING The next Hampstead council meeting, one of if not the most lively council meeting among the suburbs, will take place 8 p.m. Jan. 17 at the Adessky Community Centre in Hampstead Park. The meeting usually takes place the first Monday of the month, but was postponed. ST. LAURENT CHRISTMAS TREE COLLECTION For its part, the borough of St. Laurent has announced that Christmas trees on its territory will be collected from Jan. 10 to 28. The collection will take place at the same time as the recycling collection for different areas of the borough. "Trees must be stripped of all ornaments and placed on the curb after 8 p.m. the day before collection or before 7 a.m. the day of collection," says a borough advisory. ST. LAURENT COMPANY CELEBRATES 30TH St. Laurent councillor Aref Salem was on hand recently for the 30th anniversary celebration of Elimetal, a local company containing a "complete precision machining facility utilizing the latest in advanced Computer Numeric Control (CNC) milling and turning technologies, supplying quality parts for the aerospace, telecommunication, plastics, automotive, industrial and commercial industries," according to the company's website. Salem said St. Laurent has an economic development strategy "centred on stateof-the-art technologies.... and Elimetal is a good example of this success in the aeronautics field with world famous customers like CAE, Bomber, Pratt and Whitney and Rolls Royce." PAGE TWO Boycott protesters riling neighbours Supporters of store owner continue to rally By P.A. Sévigny The Suburban Three months after the militant PAJU (Palestinian and Jewish Unity) organization began their weekly demonstrations outside Yves Archambault's St. Denis Street shoe store, local residents no longer know, or even care, what the protest is all about. "What do they want?" asked Carole St. Pierre as she walked down the street looking for a trash can in which she could toss her flyer. "Don't they have anything better to do on a Saturday afternoon?" While she knows the protest was originally sparked by Archambault's decision to sell a specific line of shoes made in Israel, St. Pierre said enough was enough. "Okay," she said. "Everybody has a right to demonstrate but now it's time to stop blocking the street and to stop bothering people." Visibly annoyed, St. Pierre wasn't the only passing shopper who was getting annoyed with the demonstrators. More than a few local businesspeople were annoyed. "If they want to buy something...great," said one perplexed shopkeeper. "Otherwise leave...I'm too busy to put up with this nonsense." By Joel Goldenberg The Suburban Montreal West has asked the Montreal police department to withdraw some parking tickets given out in December for residents of Campbell between Ainslie and Broughton. The tickets were for having their cars pointed the wrong way, such as southbound on the northbound side of the street, from 9 to 10 p.m. Dec. 11. The Suburban was told police came back the next night and ticketed for the same offence.

Facing off against the boycotters: Suburban editor Beryl Wajsman, Quebec-Israel Committee David Ouellette, Eric Duhaime, columnist and organizer of Réseau Liberté Québec and community activist Sharon Freedman join supporters of Yves Archambault's Le Marcheur on St. Denis St. facing off against pro-Palestinian demonstrators demanding a boycott of Israeli products. While Mercier MNA Amir Khadir made a point of joining the weekly protest during its early days, local businesspeople wondered if the Québec Solidaire MNA might not have better things to do than to hinder a small business on one of the busiest streets in his riding. Possibly as a result of their anger and a lot of bad press that started in The Suburban and continued into English and French dailies, he did not residents in the area of Campbell were recently surprised to be ticketed. "The tickets were not issued by our public security officers, but rather by the police department," the mayor explained as part of his monthly report. "We're passing a resolution informing the SPVM that even if they didn't know it, there was work being done on those streets and to please withdraw the offences for the tickets they gave out during that period." Councillor Julie Tasker-Brown read the resolution, which further explained that as a result of the work, area residents could not get into their driveways for a particular period of time and had Editor-in-chief: Beryl Wajsman (editor@thesuburban.com) Associate Editor: Anthony Bonaparte (anthony@thesuburban.com) Sports Editor: Mark Lidbetter (sports@thesuburban.com) Editorial Staff: Joel Ceausu, Dan Delmar, Joel Goldenberg, Walter J.

Additionally, nothing more is being said by the boycotters about Le Marcheur and the Beautifeel shoe line, the protesters leaflets now ask passing shoppers to boycott Israeli goods because it was "a weapon for peace." Supporters of Le Marcheur are asking all who oppose PAJU to come next Saturday to Le Marcheur and show support for the Archambaults.n MoWest asks police to withdraw parking tickets no choice but to park on the street "without following all of the provisions of our traffic bylaw 405," as well as the Highway Safety Code. "The public security officers were instructed to tolerate the situation," the resolution said. "Some officers of the Montreal police department were not aware of these particular circumstances and issued a number of parking tickets." The resolution says the town is withdrawing the statements of offence for the tickets given out Dec. 11, is notifying the prosecuting officers of the municipal court involved of the resolution and is asking them not to process the files.n Editorial Contributors: Maria I.

    NEWS AND ANALYSIS CSSS Cavendish to borough: Staff cuts no cause for alarm Councillor Clarke intends to monitor situations By Dan Delmar The Suburban The head of the West End's regional health authority is asking the Côte des Neiges-NDG borough council not to be too alarmed with recent cuts to staff. At the last council meeting, a unanimous motion was passed criticizing the Centre de santé et de services sociaux (CSSS) Cavendish and asking them "to do everything possible to avoid cutting the positions of staff members working in areas where the public is most vulnerable, and to maintain support services to tenants of low-income housing." "The borough council will send a copy of this resolution to Kathleen Weil, MNA for Notre Dame de Grâce riding and Minister of Immigration and Cultural Communities." "It's not panic," said Loyola MURDER Cont'd from page 1 sion that Maor Attar had a "disease of the mind" at the time his sister was killed. During Monday's brief Quebec Court and Quebec Superior Court hearings, Attar himself appeared in court for the first time since the legal process began. On previous occasions, it was determined he was not well enough to appear, and he remained at Pinel. Attar appeared composed as Monday's process went on. Also in the courtroom were Attar's father and older sister, who both also appeared composed. Defence lawyer Daniel Lighter said the March 16 trial will only involve a judge, and no jury. The date was reached after negotiations between the lawyers as to their availability, and to provide time for the two psychiatric reports to be translated from French to English, as the trial will be in English. Two hours were put aside for the March 16 date. "At that time, both the Crown (except civic days & holidays) Councillor Susan Clarke. "I'm not going to tell the CSSS how to run things, I just want to make sure the people who are most vulnerable have services." Clarke, who initiated the motion, said she first became concerned when the CSSS chose not to hold a flu vaccination clinic at Benny Farm. They later reversed their decision and, "if it had been planned as it had year after year, it would have been more effective," Clarke said. The scaling back at the CSSS comes as it plans to move its operations to a brand new facility on Benny Farm; at the same time, the Quebec government announced recently that it will cut $730 million from the health budget. "Every organization, hospital and CLSC (which is overseen by the CSSS) will have to... improve the efficiency of administrative Shirel Attar. attorney and myself will produce evidence relative to the circumstances of the homicide, as well as the mental illness that seems to have caused the incident to begin with," Lighter told reporters. "Both the defence and the Crown have submitted forensic psychiatric reports, and both support that he suffers from schizophrenia, and both parties will agree that an acquittal by reason of disease of the mind is an appropriate resolution." (PHOTO COURTESY ATTAR FAMILY) ALL YOU CAN EAT! Includes: salad bar, shrimp and other seafood, roasts, brochettes, grilled food, dessert counter and much, much more. costs," said Health Minister Yves Bolduc, adding that services to patients will not be affected. CSSS Cavendish executive director Francine Dupuis reiterated that services to NDG residents will not be affected by cuts in administration. "It's a reorganization of all of our services," Dupuis told The Suburban. "We're making sure that we're working in the most effective way. The ministry has asked that we look at all of our processes." Clarke said she received information on two job cuts that caused concern; Dupuis said there was one post which was eliminated through attrition. The inconsistent nature of the job, she said, led to a lot of free time for the manager who held the position before retiring; his duties will now be shared by other managers. Lighter explained that if an acquittal takes place, Attar will return to Pinel, "where he is secure. "His treatment will continue - he's been in treatment now for several months, both therapeutic and with medicine as well," the lawyer added. "He will stay there until doctors and a committee of psychiatrists and psychologists determine he's fit to be reintegrated into society. "That could be in a month, it could be in a year, it could be in 10 years or, theoretically, it could be never. It depends on his mental health." Asked about the fact Attar was in court for the first time after several hearings, Lighter said his client is stable, and he's getting through "one day at a time. He's responding well to the medication." The lawyer also said psychiatrists were surprised at how ill Attar was last August. "He was young, he was only 18 and the disease seemed to have progressed very rapidly, and he deteriorated quickly in the month preceding the homicide. It was a pretty traumatic fall."n LUNCH BUFFET $ 7 49 Monday to Friday 11 am to 3 pm The borough "passed a motion without even calling us.

    True Montreal flavour on Toronto airwaves Mike Cohen If you are in Toronto anytime soon, make sure to check out how some former Montrealers are doing on the airwaves. Start off with NEWSTALK 1010, part of the Astral Media chain, where John Moore is the city's rising star. The former CJAD/Virgin Radio personality, who can still be heard weekday mornings with Andrew Carter for their pre-6 a.m. "Double Double" segment, has really come into his own as one of Toronto's top wake-up hosts. He can also be seen as a national television pundit and voices promotional reels for The Movie Network and HBO Canada. Program director Mike Bendixen arrived via CJAD just over a year ago. It was a return engagement for him, having started his career at the station then known simply as CFRB before coming to Montreal. "Ratings have increased nicely since we 'overhauled' the line-up," said Bendixen. "John Moore is doing extremely well as our new morning show host. I moved him into mornings in October 2009." In the afternoon, the golden voice of David McKee can be heard as the NEWSTALK 1010 news anchor. McKee was lured away from CJAD by Bendixen, an interesting move since he just married station promotions director Lisa Fuocco. She remains in Montreal. Bendixen's fiancée is Tammy Fuocco, Lisa's sister. Other ex- Montreal radio personalities include two other morning guys - John Oakley, for- John Moore merly of CJAD, on Talk Radio AM 640 and one-time Virgin Radio (then Mix 96) host "Humble" Howard Glassman on BOOM 97.3 FM. Jeff Blair, who covered the Montreal Expos for The Gazette, hosts the mid morning show on the all-sports FAN 590. The great thing about radio today is that if you want to listen to any of them, you can do so online. The Juniors: While in the Niagara Falls/Buffalo, New York area over the Christmas holidays, it was impossible to escape the excitement of the World Junior Hockey Championships. The Buffalo News profiled Ellis Salazar of Montreal, who drove down with his wife Shirley and their son Ellis Jr. More than 400,000 tickets were sold for Choose Manoir Montefiore because we care for your loved one as much as you do. * Discover a quality, caring environment where your loved one will be treated in a dignified, respectful manner * Professional, dedicated staff provides the finest in healthcare using our AGING IN PLACE approach * Independent assisted and respite care * 24 Hour Nursing Supervision * Recently Renovated * Kosher facility with full time Rabbi and synagogue on premises offering a warm Jewish atmosphere 4 * THE SUBURBAN, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 12, 2011 NEWS & ANALYSIS 514-485-5994 5885 Cavendish www.reveraliving.com * Social and recreation programs * Daily housekeeping and weekly laundry services * Walking distance from library, mall and parks * Because we care, make Manoir Montefiore your home.

Sévigny The Suburban Even if there's nothing left of the Christmas holidays but a few pounds you don't need, a new jacket and a lingering headache, it's time to clean up and, to its credit; the cities are doing their part. Apart from their normal duties, city clean-up crews in Westmount, Verdun, and the CDN/NDG borough will be trolling the streets in order to pick up old Christmas trees for proper disposal and recycling. In order to avoid any possible problems due to www.collagetherapies.ca Alexandra Theatre, which starred Montrealer Yvan Pedneault. The original Broadway smash contains great rock songs from the 1980s. It enjoyed an eight month run, which ended to make way for another series of big shows including the much anticipated Billy Elliot and The Secret Garden. Pedneault, by the way, seems to have become a Toronto favourite, he got the lead in Rock of Ages after enjoying topbilling in We Will Rock You, which was on stage for more than a year...Hockey legend Guy Lafleur has reportedly made a few visits this past year to the popular Toronto location of Dave and Busters, the North American restaurant and games emporium chain.

In the CDN/NDG borough, authorities are asking the population to leave their trees out by the side of the road before 7 a.m. on Jan. 12 in order to have them ready to for the clean-up crews. Trees should be stripped of all ornaments, including tinsel and assorted hooks, as they will be tossed into choppers before being turned into wood chips, mulch and compost in the city's facilities up in the Miron Quarry. n Occupational Therapy for Children Handwriting Scissor Skills Sensory Daily living skills If you have concerns about your child's: Handwriting or scissor skills Comfort with touch or sensory experiences Ability to dress, groom or feed himself Capability to recognize shapes and colours Ability to tie shoe laces then have your child SCREENED FREE OF CHARGE by our pediatric Occupational Therapists Emily Tran Occupational Therapist to look for acquisition of developmental milestones. 4141 Sherbrooke St. W., Westmount 175 Place Frontenac, Pointe-Claire Megan Silverhart Occupational Therapist 514.933.8255 514.461.3934

All sales are final NEWS & ANALYSIS Citizen's appeal in Suburban gets answered By Kevin Woodhouse The Suburban It was not the story of the century and would not get that much ink but it was the kind that made you wince. A senior citizen in Beaconsfield wakes up to find that someone has approached her property via the frozen Lac St. Louis and tossed a number of her decorative urns onto the ice. Barbara Barclay woke up on Boxing Day to find the bulk of her outdoor vases tossed onto the ice. They are large and heavy and while she could spot them in the water, there was no way for her to carry them back to the edge of the property. While there was nothing officially that could be done, Barclay got in touch with The Suburban and asked for help. Not to find the perpetrators but to get someone with a backbone to come by and retrieve the vases from the ice. Our editor, Beryl Wajsman, has often told the reporters on staff that advocacy journalism is all about helping others and giving them a voice. While Barclay's cause was not one as strong as someone being oppressed by the police for sitting GLATT on a park bench, a citizen had felt wronged and so we asked readers to help out.

CAVENDISH, COTE ST LUC TEL.: 514-369-2727 FAX: 514-369-8885 www.jrkosher.com Kind hearted volunteers Donald De Gryse (l) and Pat James work with the care of archeologists as they tried to get some urns out of the ice in Beaconsfield last Saturday. The response was impressive and last Saturday afternoon, Beaconsfield resident Donald De Gryse and Côte St. Luc's Pat James came by to get the urns out of the water. Unfortunately, the early January thaw that turned the water near Barclay's property line to soup had refrozen, sealing in the outdoor vases. With a hatchet and hammer, De Gryse and James worked like archaeologists to free the urns but to no avail. They were just too iced over. "Don't worry," De Gryse said. "We can come back in the spring to take care of this." He had decided to help as he had met Barclay at a council meeting two years earlier and both share an affinity for heritage homes. For James, who makes his living as a caricaturist, taking the bus from Côte St. Luc to Beaconsfield and back was no worry as "I read that someone needed help and I had the time." And while the urns will still be encased under Jack Frost's crust for a little while, the goodwill that was shared, along with Barclay's superb home baked treats, will last a long time. Kudos to all who expressed interest in helping and especially to James and De Gryse who proved to all that for every person who wants to break things, there are always those to re-build and improve.n KEVIN WOODHOUSE / THE SUBURBAN

    NEWS & ANALYSIS CSL council not place for sales pitch: Housefather By Joel Goldenberg The Suburban In one of the few tense moments at Côte St. Luc council these days, Mayor Anthony Housefather chided resident Eli Chalupovitsch for what he perceived to be a "sales pitch" at the November council meeting of a product for paving roads. Chalupovitsch told Housefather that he was involved last fall in the installation and paving of Cavendish Blvd. north of Mackle Road, as part of a pilot project, when David Tordjman was still public works director. "The reason for my involvement was there was a product called TruPave, an engineered paving mat installed on the layer before the top layer of the asphalt is put in," the resident explained. "Mr. Tordjman recommended it and had it put in. "This spring, I went to speak to Mr. Tordjman and he had liked what he had seen, it's a very well maintained road," Chalupovitsch said. "Then he left his position. I had a meeting with somebody from public works - I don't want to mention his name - and the response was the product is great, but there does not seem to be any political will [to use it again]." The resident said he spoke to Tordjman's replacement, Joe Catalano, and soon found out he was leaving his position as well. Chalupovitsch said TruPave is produced by the insulation company Owens Corning. "It's a proven product and the road lasts about seven to 10 years, I have a file with the pertinent data, and I have pictures of the installation and the road as it appears now. I'd like to know how we can proceed to include this in future processes, because I know Côte St. Luc has been given many millions of dollars for infrastructure work and how do we proceed so we don't squander taxpayers' money? I am a resident..." An irritated Housefather said Côte St. Luc is not squandering taxpayers' money. "We do our roads appropriately, according to the customs and norms of different municipalities," the mayor said. "The council meeting is not an appropriate way for you to make a sale to the City of Côte St. Luc." Chalupovitsch said he was not making a sale. "I'm merely asking a question." Housefather said Chalupovitsch can propose his product to the city's purchasing and engineering departments. "They will make a determination whether or not they recommend the purchase of that product to council at a future date," the mayor said. "The political discussion does not occur at council at this stage." Housefather also asked for the name of the person Chalupovitsch quoted as saying council lacked the political will to use the product. Chalupovitsch said he would give the name to him at a later time.n Former CSL engineering chief continues Haiti effort By Joel Goldenberg The Suburban Former Côte St. Luc engineering chief David Tordjman was recently featured in a World Bank video report on the ongoing post-earthquake relief effort in Haiti. Tordjman is working for the United Nations office for Project Services, and one of his projects is supporting Haiti's ministry of public works as project manager of flood water canal debris removal, an initiative of the World Bank which is also supported by international donors. Tordjman told The Suburban last year that the multimillion dollar project would "mitigate the risk of flooding of the [still-existing] displaced persons camps during the oncoming rainy season." The World Bank video featuring Tordjman, available on YouTube as Haiti: Canal Clean Up, points out that cleaning Port au Prince's flood canals is a "daunting and lifesaving task," involving the removal of hundreds of tons of trash and sewage. A construction vehicle can be seen picking up waste. "Each canal brings down with it the debris, regular garbage, daily domestic refuse, as well as all the fecal matter from the homes," Tordjman explains on the video. "There's no proper sewage system so this is the mechanism that is established to get rid of all the refuse in Haiti." Haiti Public Works Minister Jacques Gabriel is quoted as saying 20 waste trucks were bought with World Bank help and private companies were contracted to do the work and shorten the time needed for the effort before the rainy season. The World Bank video also says the cleaning project has stopped flooding in Port au Prince and involves "technical assistance to further improve canal maintenance," as well as looking into ways to prevent future floods. Some 100,000 cubic metres of waste has been removed as of late December.n Quest for the best winner... Quest for the best winner...

Brother André, who was canonized this past Oct. 17 as Saint André Bessette, has a special connection with St. Laurent as he spent his last days in 1937 being treated at Hôpital Saint-Laurent, where he died Jan. 6 of that year. The reliquary was received at borough hall Jan. 6, the anniversary of Brother André's death. St. Laurent received the reliquary in collaboration with Unité pastorale Saint-Laurent. WWW.INFOWARS.COM "The Alex Jones Show" Some 150 people were on hand for the event, which included the placing of the reliquary on a backdrop of red fabric and a medal created by renowned Quebec sculptor Sylvia Daoust. Two liturgical services were held last Thursday and featured "historical evocations about the life of Brother André, prayers, and music, as well as a projection of images onto a large screen," according to a borough statement. A documentary on Brother André's life, produced by St. Joseph's oratory, was shown. "We commemorate not only the death of this saint, but also his life and his passing in St. Laurent," said mayor Alan DeSousa." "Even with his great popularity, Brother André always remained humble and very near to people. He is an example and an inspiration for several generations."n From left, Father Roland Laurin, Mayor Alan DeSousa, councillor Francesco Miele, councillor Michèle Biron, Father André Charron and councillor Aref Salem. FLU BUG Cont'd from page 1 headache probably means you're coming down with the flu. While it usually means nothing more than bed rest for a couple of days, the situation can get rough for seniors or anybody with chronic health issues. "Most people know what to do," said Bouvier. "But should things get serious, it's a good idea to go to the local CSST if you want to see a doctor." While getting the flu is never pleasant, it's always worse for a mother with a sick child when all the usual symptoms are made worse by a dry cough, diarrhea and a baby's rasping cries. As usual, up to two days of bed rest, a lot of fruit juice and some liquid aspirin will take care of business unless the situation goes south and there's some kind of secondary infection. "If the patient starts spitting up green mucus," said Bouvier, "there's probably some infection which will probably require some antibiotics." Otherwise, get vaccinated if you're over 60, and when you sneeze, do it into your sleeve and wash your hands often. If you do get sick, don't be a hero and go to work. Stay home, take some aspirin, drink plenty of liquids and seize the opportunity to watch all three of The Godfather movies. Now that's an offer you can't refuse.n PHOTO COURTESY ST. LAURENT

    NEWS & ANALYSIS Kimberley Fortin among 'Canada's Top Teen Philanthropists' Pointe Claire teen has been working with FTC for last seven years By Kevin Woodhouse The Suburban For Pointe Claire resident Kimberley Fortin, 19, giving back to others is a way of life. For the last seven years she has been actively involved with Free The Children as part of the youth group of Cedar Park United Church. Recently, the Pointe Claire teen was recognized as being one of the six finalists in Mackenzie Investments' "Canada's Top Teen Philanthropist." Candidates were selected from across the country and determining factors for the award included leadership, creativity as well as duration and level of active involvement for their community and charity. Free The Children is a non-profit organization founded in 1995 by then 12-year-old Craig Kielburger. FTC's mandate is to ease children who suffer from abuse and oppression. "I wasn't too sure about the cause when I first joined up but I learned about different issues affecting children all over the world and I wanted to help," Fortin said, Fortin began with FTC after hearing her neighbour speak about Kielburger's recent speech. "I was asked to join seven years ago and I'm still involved," Fortin told The Suburban. To date, the Cedar Park United chapter has raised more than $100,000 for FTC supported projects in China, Kenya, Sierra Leone and most recently, Haiti. "While I received the award, we are a team who work hard to raise money to help others," Fortin said. The group is made up of about 30 aged 11 to 21-year-old adolescents Pointe Claire teenager Kimberley Fortin visited Kenya last summer as part of a Free The Children tour of various cities the organization had helped in recent years. "It really hits you to see the work that has been done has made such a huge difference in the lives of so many children," Fortin said. who come from the area as well as across the island of Montreal. Recent projects include fundraising for the construction of a 700-student sized school complex in Dos Palais, Haiti. "We will continue raising money for Haiti this year as there is a constant need to help with sustainable development for that country." This past July, Fortin visited various towns in Kenya where Free The Children's projects were either being completed or just starting. Wells, community gardens and schools are FTC's most common projects to boost the local citizenry. "With a group of 30 other students from across Canada and a few from the U.S., I worked on building a school in a new Free the Children com- munity called Sikirar," said Fortin. "Along with many other activities, I had the chance to visit two communities in which my Free the Children group had raised money for." The next fundraiser for Haiti will be taking place this coming Jan. 15 & 16 at 3 p.m. and is called the "Voices for Hope Viva Broadway Concert." the money raised will go towards the school for Dos Palais. Fortin is also donating the $500 she earned for her award to the cause.

Côte St. Luc property owners can also expect an average 2.98 percent increase, taking into account local and island-wide Montreal agglomeration taxes. Taken in isolation, the local tax increase is 1.8 percent, while the agglomeration increase is 4.1 percent. The owner of a home evaluated at the average $441,912 can expect to pay $5,728 in local and agglomeration taxes combined, a $166 increase from last year. Last year, the average evaluation of a home was $426,320. Councillor Dida Berku, in charge of finance on council, said 2011 is a "year of transition" for Côte St. Luc, referring to the development of the Cavendish Mall residential project and the building of the Aquatic and Community Centre. "We did our very best to balance the budget, and we felt it was appropriate not to increase the taxes too much, but we have to deal with increasing agglo costs and the financing costs for the centre and the mall project," Berku said. Other facts from the budget: * The three-year property evaluation roll for Côte St. Luc had an overall increase of 11.2 percent - residential was 10.5 percent and non-residential was 17.2 percent.
