These past three summers, our food supplies were so low that we had to make an urgent appeal for non-perishable food donations in order to replenish our empty warehouse shelves. Generally, the summer season is usually a very quiet period, both in terms of donations and demands. However, during the past three years, we have noticed an increase in the number of families seeking assistance. On a monthly basis, we supply food to an average of 2,500 underprivileged families. This represents 450 additional families per month in comparison to 2009. This fact can be attributed to a growing number of "Walk-Ins" (people without any appointments), generally emergency cases referred by Social Workers, CLSCs and other organizations. The overall increase can be linked to various reasons, but the main factor is the increase in global food prices (sometimes as high as 40%) and high gas prices. These two elements are affecting our clientele immensely. Donors are also impacted by the aforementioned realities, and this in turn reflects on their donations. Thus, we have noticed a decrease of 35% in donations over a period of one year. Even though people are as generous as they were in the past, their purchasing capacity has been greatly reduced and Publisher: Michael Sochaczevski Associate Publisher: Sari Medicoff VP Business Development & Marketing: David Solomon Sales Manager: David Broadman Production Manager: Karen L.

Even though our summer food drives are a great success, due to the recession, we are now facing the same situation that affects us in the summer period; our warehouse stocks are still running low as we prepare for our Holiday Basket Campaign where we will see 18,000 people lining up at our doorsteps to obtain food for the Holidays. At the moment, our biggest concern is the ability to cope with the demand leading up to Christmas and the first three months of 2011. As we often say, poverty and hunger never take vacations and the needs are as great, if not superior, to the needs during the Holiday Season. As you can imagine our organization would greatly benefit by receiving a donation. Our food bank is in dire need of funds in order to purchase non-perishable food items for the Chanukah and Christmas Baskets that will be distributed to our clientele. We also anticipate spending in excess of $250,000 before the end of the year in food items for our Emergency Relief Program. This current recession has taxed our resources to the limit and our needs are greater than ever. We truly hope that we will be able to rely on your support.

Lachine residents and mayor Claude Dauphin are protesting Montreal West's new sidewalk barrier, which the town erected because of complaints motorists were ignoring the current prohibitions to enter the town through Des rables. Dauphin is looking into legal options based on fire department complaints about the barrier, while Montreal West says it is within its legal rights.

    NEWS AND ANALYSIS 'I will not be bullied' MoWest's Mazzone defends his integrity By Joel Goldenberg The Suburban Montreal West councillor Dino Mazzone received a standing ovation at Monday night's standing-room only town council meeting, after delivering a speech defending his integrity in relation to a planned Pharmaprix store on Westminster. The 10,000 square-foot project has been so controversial that many residents expressing a point of view have wished to remain anonymous. Some oppose the project, seeing it as a threat to local merchants, while others see it as a way to revitalize the commercial area and bring more choice to consumers. Mayor Beny Masella said a traffic engineer is evaluating Pharmaprix's study in relation to possible traffic around the store and parking issues. In the whirlwind of debate on this issue, Mazzone, who favours the project, said there has been talk around town that he is in a conflict of interest regarding Pharmaprix because he was their legal counsel. At least one caller to The Suburban in recent weeks made this same accusation. Masella said the atmosphere has been such that his and Mazzone's Italian heritages were attacked on a blog. In his speech, Mazzone said that Westminster pharmacist Carole Anne Budning charged on CBC Radio that Mazzone worked for Pharmaprix for 10 years, Daybreak host Mike Finnerty identified Mazzone as Pharmaprix's "chief counsel" and an e-mail circulated around town with similar inaccuracies. "Opponents of this Pharmaprix project want to draw the inference that I am somehow and somewhat beholden to Pharmaprix's interests and that I will promote its interests in priority to the best interests of the town," Mazzone said. CAREGIVERS Cont'd from page 1 Caregivers who support family members or friends dealing with chronic conditions, long-term disability and deteriorating health are invited to take part in special workshops aimed at helping to express their emotions and relieve stress.

"What we're hoping to do is engage people in an interactive way," said Creative Connections program director Dr. Elliot Montgomery Sklar. "We want to give respite for caregivers." Recently incorporated as a nonprofit, ECCOM's stated goal is also to "contribute to improving the global quality of life to Englishspeaking caregivers of Greater Montreal by empowering them with information on services, NEW STORE Pharmaprix's rendering of what the proposed store would look like. Mazzone countered that he was a legal counsel for Shoppers Drug Mart-Pharmaprix from September 2004 to December 2007; that while he was the only legal counsel physically based in Quebec, others based in Toronto were the company's chief counsel; that his current firm has no work with Pharmaprix; that he has no financial interest and will receive no benefit from the proposed project and that he received a legal opinion from municipal lawyer Yvon Denault that he is not in a conflict of interest. "I will not be bullied into recusing from my participation in this file and on this council," Mazzone said. "If you want to come at me, you better be ready and know that I will aggressively defend my good family name, my impeccable reputation at the Bar and my place in this community here and in the courts," Mazzone said. The councillor also urged residents to weigh in with their opinions on the project. "Unless you speak your mind and influence this decision-making process, you future will be decided by others. If you stand with me, I will be your voice." In a gesture of good will, Budning approached Mazzone after the meeting and apologized for what she said on CBC, saying her sources were incor- rect. "I certainly have nothing but the highest [respect] for the council and I trust they will do what is best for the town," she said. Mazzone accepted the apology.n resources and their rights." Sklar said family caregivers are often ignored; they work tirelessly outside of the medical system and mainly without remuneration, benefits or support. Apart from some support offered by the Cummings Centre, "in Montreal, the offerings are pretty limited. There are few support services provided to caregivers."

    NEWS & ANALYSIS 4 * THE SUBURBAN, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2010 Avenue Clanranald Avenue Coolbrook Z Boulevard Decarie Luft a good fit when morning TV returns to Global Mike Cohen Shaw Communications has announced that as part of their purchase of the Global Television Network, they will return morning newscasts to their stations - including Montreal. I was always a big fan of Global Montreal's This Morning Live, which was clipped by CanWest just a few years ago. Now that it is likely to be brought back, how about former CTV veteran Herb Luft as one of the hosts? Herb retired last summer, a decision that was precipitated by the cancellation of the early morning CTV News, a shift he adored. Peter Anthony Holder and Richard Dagenais would be excellent choices as well. They have both found employment on the station as a maternity leave replacements for Amanda Jelowicki and Jamie Orchard. Both moms will be back on the air in due time. Florida Visits: As the chill set in last week, it was perfect timing for the entourage from Florida to come to town and meet with some local media.

UFC Champ's Secret Recipe: If Subways restaurants can have megaweight loss guy Jared Fogle as their spokesperson, how about Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight title holder Georges St-Pierre fulfilling the same role for the Baton Rouge ribs and chicken chain. According to Kosta Haralambous, St-Pierre has been dining at the popular Baton Rouge Decarie location several days a week for two years now. One night he left his fight plan notes on the table. Haralambous collected them and when he returned them to the champ, St-Pierre signed his name and gave them back. "That's some collector's item," said Kosta.

Now that I am helping my daughter assemble her applications to university I got to thinking of you and look forward to coming to visit you. You were so helpful and instrumental when I was looking for universities to attend. You knew everything. You knew what schools and programs would be well suited to me, you knew the people to contact and you were willing to take the time to help contact them. You wrote letters of recommendation on my behalf and you were always reminding me of upcoming deadlines. The incredible thing was you were not the school guidance counselor nor even my teacher...you were the school principal. Despite running the school and the budget challenges, you still managed to have time for anyone who came to seek your counsel. You were not my teacher yet you knew enough about me personally to know I enjoyed sports and was interested in business as a vocation. The few times you were the substitute teacher for the class were among my most memorable high school learning experiences. We were not put in front of a movie but rather challenged to think about a current event or take a new look at an English passage we had studied from a whole different perspective. You would never just allow our time to be wasted, but instead used your encyclopedic knowledge to challenge us on some subject and make us leave the room 45 minutes later enriched and smarter for it. We may have talked about Mexican grape pickers in California or the Cold War or re-read a Shakespearean passage you could recite by heart. It didn't matter but we were involved, engaged, and informed. You were an important influence in my life and I am sure the life of many others.....Thank you." Your friend Michael *** The above were some of my thoughts recently that never got spoken or even written. Sunday I learned that Arthur Candib had passed away and his funeral had already occurred. I missed that opportunity to say good-bye but I hope this tribute will comfort his family in their time of grief. He was a great man who made the world better for others. He will be missed by the many he touched. He was hands on. He got things done. He taught us, he enriched us. His vast knowledge on so many subjects was legendary. His memory of all manner of details was incomparable. During his tenure as Principal he touched the lives of thousands of students. Yet 20 years after I graduated he remembered my name, and had complete recall of everything about me and I know it was not just me. We were once his, and he took a personal interest in eachand every one of us. Even students who got sent to his office for discipline (so my friends have told me...) came away enriched in some manner. They would learn how to make coffee or clean up a pile of books or file some papers, but before they went back to class they received the "guidance" they needed in a manner tailored to their situation and personality to make sure their behavioural issue would not repeat itself. If administrators and teachers today could strive to make each minute count learning something (on topic or not) the way he did, we would all be better for it.

    "The realities have changed. Anglophones and Francophones are on the same side," co-founder states By Alan Hustak Special to The Suburban You may not have heard of the Quebec Freedom Network, but you will now. They turned people away at the door, so full was its opening meeting in Quebec City this past weekend. Over 500 people listened to Ezra Levant, Tasha Kheiriddin, Adam Daifallah and Eric Duhaime advocate for a freer, less invasive Quebec state with a dramatically reduced bureaucracy and a greater emphasis on self-reliance. The next gathering of the Reseau Libert-Qubec will be in Montreal, perhaps even on the West Island. Conceived as an anti-statist grassroots movement to fill the emerging political vacuum in Quebec, it cleverly launched on YouTube weeks before the Quebec conference. Journalist, political analyst and policy advisor Eric Duhaime, one of the group's six founding members, says the conference was aimed at voters who are right of centre that have lost patience with the Charest government but who are not willing to embrace Pauline Marois and the separatists. Duhaime has worked as a political advisor to both Stockwell Day when he was leader of the federal Reform Party and to Mario Dumont, former leader of Quebec's Action Democratique Party. He M ade to m easure furniture Project conception by interior designer Customized 3D computer design Installation by professional cabinet makers Quest for the best winner... says the purpose of the meeting was not to create a political party, but "to change politics from a grassroots perspective, to stimulate new ideas then spread them." Duhaime agrees Reseau Libert Quebec is patterned on the populist Tea Party movement. But he says, unlike the Tea Party, there is no religious right in Quebec to influence the movement. "That changes the dynamic," he says, "People have to understand that there is a French nationalist element that has to be respected, and that we are Qubcois, but language is not the only issue. Constitutional and language issues have split the country for the last half century, but the realities have changed. It has always been the Yes camp against the No camp. There has been no real debate on where these camps would take us. Francophones and Anglophones are on the same side. We have the same concerns. No matter what language we speak, those of us who are under the age of 40, will, during our lifetime pay more than $200,000 in taxes that we will never get back. We will be the first generation of Quebecers to grow up poorer than our parents. We have to think about personal responsibility, and forget about political parties who continue to promise much more than they can afford to deliver." The network's mission statement says the movement is open to anyone who favours deficit reduction, and intergenerational fairness. With only 500 days - give or take a few - until the next Quebec election, Duhaime believes the time is ripe to tap into a constituency that has grown disillusioned with politics.

    NEWS & ANALYSIS Facing up to the big lie - The Al-Dura Affair ACT for Canada hosts Karsenty By P.A. Svigny The Suburban "The truth is the only weapon we have to defend ourselves against lies." ~ Philippe Karsenty For most of the world, it's been more than a decade since the entire world saw the televised news clip where 12-year-old Mohammad Al-Dura allegedly died under a hail of Israeli bullets near the Netzarim Junction in the Middle East's Gaza Strip. Within hours after TV cameraman Talal Abu Rahma filmed the boy's body lying next to his wounded father, French reporter Charles Enderlin added a voice-over where the entire story was reduced to a standard news clip after which it was broadcast on French TV and later released to the world through the Internet. Only days after the beginnings of the second intifada, the image went viral after which it quickly gathered the iconic power of a battle flag on the front lines of a fierce post-modern propaganda war being fought over the airwaves and on the Internet. As the debate over the image continued to make its way through the media, it rapidly gained its iconic status where, much as in religious art over the centuries, the viewer could draw whatever meaning he wanted from the image. As anti-Zionism became the new anti- Semitism, French journalist Catherine Nay placed the Al-Dura media-borne image into its own historical context when she said it "cancels that of the Jewish child, his hands in the air before the SS in the Warsaw Ghetto." Alas, while there is little discussion about the historical context which probably defined the little boy's fate after he was caught by Hitler's SS, the discussion about the Al-Dura image is only beginning as good journalism and courageous journalists continue to prove the Al-Dura Affair was nothing less than an elaborate media-driven hoax. During last week's evening conference held in Westmount's new Marionopolis campus auditorium, French media analysts and vice-mayor of Neuilly Phillipe Karsenty used the same power point presentation he used to defend himself against libel in a French court to convince his audience that the Al-Dura incident was nothing more than a made-for-TV scenario transformed into a mythic and iconic reality after it made its way onto the Internet. After thanking Act For Canada activists Evelyne Schahcter and Valerie Price for their courage and determination to fight for the public's right to know the truth, Suburban Editor Beryl Wajsman introduced Karsenty as a warrior on the front lines of the battle for free speech against what he described as "an intellectual conspiracy...to de-legitimize the state of Israel," Wajsman said Karsenty's epic eightyear battle proves how dangerous weak journalism can be once it's amplified by the Suburban editor Beryl Wajsman with Phillipe Karsenty. anarchy of social networks fed by electronic media working at the speed of light squared. During his short but eloquent introduction, Wajsman also said the Al-Dura affair "was not an isolated incident," and only part of a global intellectual mindset to reduce any and all free nations - particularly those allied to the United States and Israel - to being pariahs and eventually "the ultimate 'autre'." Ten years after Mohammad Al-Dura was supposed to have been shot and killed at the Netzarim Junction, it took the French courts more than eight years to finally decide that Phillipe Karsenty had "exercised in good faith," his right to criticize what really happened to Mohammad Al-Dura. In their 13-page decision, the French court specifically stated how cameraman Abu Rahma's statements "were not credible either in form or content." After a ferocious and very expensive fight to defend himself against libel charges brought against him by both Enderlin and France '2', one of the largest and more important television networks in the country, it took less than 15 minutes for Karsenty to use the same evidence he used in court to convince his audience the Al-Dura pictures were a fraud. As a number of witnesses provided conflicting versions of where, when and what actually happened to the boy, ballistic reports and further ballistic evidence about assorted bullet wounds combined with further evidence of another boy's corpse being used to portray Al-Dura's in the morgue, Karsenty's conclusive research began to tear massive holes into what was the accepted narrative as to what happened to young Mohammad Al-Dura. Abu Rahma's own videotape provides crucial evidence as a number of experts pointed out how there was no blood and none of the kind of visible trauma bullets can do to a person.

Svigny The Suburban As ghosts, goblins and fairy princesses begin to scour the streets for Halloween sweets, Verdun's Saint Laurence Optimist Club will be working with local police to make sure the kids are safe on the borough's streets. Verdun activist Joe Quinn reports the borough's Optimist Club has recently purchased a massive quantity of glow sticks which will be handed out to parents and local children by police agents in PDQ #16 located behind the bor- ough's city hall on Verdun Avenue. While the sticks can be hung on a lanyard around a child's neck, parents shouldn't worry about any mishaps because the lanyards have minimal resistance which means they can be broken by any pressure exceeding three pounds. Once lit, the sticks are expected to last for up to four hours, which should give the children plenty of time to fill up their bags with plenty of Halloween swag.

He points out that only 56 percent of Quebecers bothered to vote in the last provincial election, the poorest turnout since 1927. "Anglophones in particular stayed away from the polls, because they have been taken for granted by the Liberals, and never really had their concerns heard by the Quebec government. We need English voices in the Quebec Freedom Network." The freedom network was started by six public-spirited citizens, including Duhaime, Dr. Roger Eappen, Ian Senecal, Guilliame Simard-Leduc, Gerard Lalibert, and documentary television producer Joanne (L'illusion tranquille) Marcotte.
