y VSP councillors react to Fumagalli controversy ‘This is a particular situation’ that ‘may seem concerning, ’ they say Fermeture temporaire de la piscine Saint-Roch et inscriptions aux cours de natation (PXN) In view of recent news reports regard- ing Borough Mayor Giuliana Fumagalli’s expul- sion from the Projet Montréal caucus follow- ing allegations of harassment against her, the Borough of Villeray/St-Michel/Parc Extension’s four councillors issued a statement on Aug. 9 explaining their position.
Partisanship aside “In light of the allegations against the mayor of Villeray/Saint-Michel/Parc-Extension, we, your four city councillors, want to share our intention to put partisanship aside in order to ensure decision-making leadership within the borough,” said councillors Rosanie Filato (Villeray), Sylvain Ouellet (François-Perrault), Frantz Benjamin (Saint-Michel) and Mary Deros (Parc Extension). “Know that we recognize that this is a particular situation and that it may seem concerning,” they continued. “It is imperative for us to reassure you that improving your quality of life, through the municipal services that are offered to you, remains at the heart of our concerns.
Fumagalli still mayor “To this end, we would like to underline the quality of the borough’s public service workers and reiterate the total confidence we place in them,” said the councillors. “Ms. Fumagalli remains mayor of the borough and will continue to preside the monthly borough council meetings. “However, rest assured that we will exercise our right to speak and to vote in such a way which ensures that all decisions are taken in your best interest and that the borough’s funds are managed responsibly. We are available to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Do not hesitate to contact us at 514-872-0755.” ‘Ms. Fumagalli remains mayor of the borough and will continue to preside the monthly borough council meetings’

Parlez-moi D’HUMOUR Alcide Borik :LOO2WWDZDWDNHDFWLRQWREDQ personal handguns? T he savage shooting spree that traumatized Toronto’s usually friendly and tranquil Danforth neigh- bourhood – commonly known as Greektown – shook Canada’s Hellenic community in July when Greeks everywhere were already struggling with news of the wildfires devastating their homeland. While Prime Minister Justin Trudeau suggested following the funeral of one of the Toronto shooting victims that Ottawa may take action to stem what appears to be a rising tide of illegal firearms in Canada, what now seems more clear is that the phenomenal mass shootings that have become commonplace in the U.S. may be spreading to this country. Terrible as it might seem, the Toronto incident could actually be just the start.
“People need to be safe and we need to take the right measures to do that,” Trudeau told journalists following the funeral of 18-year-old Reese Fallon who died in the July 22 shooting. “We’re looking at things that have been done around the world,” he said. “Things that have been done in other jurisdictions, looking at the best evidence, the best data, to make the right decisions.” In Canada, ownership of handguns has been subject to registration since 1934. As well, to purchase a handgun a person must have a restricted possession and acquisition license (RPAL). According to a 1996 study, 2.3 per cent of Canadian households had a handgun. Another study conducted in 2005 found that 3 per cent of households had handguns. By comparison, 18 per cent of U.S. households are handgun owners. We are fortunate that in the Montreal region up to now there have been few incidents like the one in Toronto – although we haven’t been spared entirely. The deadliest mass shooting in Canadian history – the École Polytechnique Massacre – took place in Montreal on December 6, 1989, when an angry 25-year-old man armed with a semi-automatic rifle killed 14 women before committing suicide. Several factors are in play in the unfolding scenario over the future of handgun ownership in Canada. First, contrary to the longstanding belief that large numbers of handguns somehow get smuggled into Canada from the U.S., it would seem that a significant amount of illicit firearms production takes place within this country.
Case in point: the owner of a tool machining shop in Montreal’s LaSalle district was convicted earlier this year of trafficking in prohibited semi-automatic handguns. According to court testimony, Jean-Pierre Huot surely knew his pieces would eventually make their way into the hands of organized crime figures. He was convicted on six charges that his company, Perfection Métal, sold Tec-9-type semi-automatic pistols, despite claiming in court that he was merely making paintball guns. However, several murders, shootings and robberies involving underworld figures in the Montreal region over the past six years were committed with handguns produced at Perfection Métal. The case illustrates the fact there’s obviously no need to import handguns into Canada when there are expert machinists to produce them here for high-paying underworld clients.
While some maintain that preventing even a single shooting incident is enough justification to legislate a ban on personal handgun ownership in Canada, this doesn’t take into account other types of firearms which have proven to be equally destructive when used in mass shootings. All the same, a nationwide ban on handguns (applying to everyone, except public safety and military officials) would be a step in the right direction. This type of action should be taken into serious consideration by our elected officials, even as another factor looms to further complicate the handgun control issue: relatively new technology that allows such weapons to be produced from downloaded specifications on 3-D printers.
Although initial tests conducted by the U.S. government’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) suggest that these almost entirely plastic handguns are unreliable and dangerous when fired, improvements are bound to be made, making it easier than ever for almost anyone to clandestinely produce a working handgun. While the federal government is likely to include such weapons in an eventual handgun ban, it is difficult to imagine how Ottawa could effectively control the flow of illicit 3-D firearms without effectively blocking access to them at the source – on the Internet itself.
However, if accessing certain types of pornography on the Internet remains unambiguously illegal, the same principle can certainly be applied to the production of 3-D firearms. In both cases, it’s for the same reason – the protection of the public. For the time being, Public Safety Canada issued a statement last week saying that regardless of the method of producing firearms, a business license is always required to do so and “all firearms are subject to the Firearms Act, the Criminal Code and their associated regulations.” That said, it would seem we are already in a better position in Canada to protect the public from irrespon- sible handgun and firearms use. This is more than can be said of the situation in the U.S., where the carnage is sure to continue in a country where most people still adamantly refuse to compromise when it comes to their obsessive love of guns.
– Martin C. Barry – J ’ai encore le souvenir de P.E. Trudeau qui avait pris une décision politique en faveur de je ne sais quelle entité politique qui ne respectait nullement les droits de la personne ; Il avait répondu aux journalistes avec son arrogance coutumière : N’oubliez pas que nous avons un Ministère des AFFAIRES extérieures, impliquant ainsi avec sa voix, qu’il préférait faire passer les intérêts économiques du Canada avant les grands principes de la Civilisation Occidentale.
Le dilemme a pris de l’ampleur dans un monde d’aujourd’hui où les dirigeants sont souvent des dictateurs totalitaires qui nient allègre- ment les grands principes de la démocratie, truquent leurs élections, trahissent les accords, pactes et alliances au gré de leur convenance, nient les changements climatiques et l’évidence quand ça leur convient, détruisent le monde et le polluent, transformant l’estime que nous pouvons avoir pour leur pays en une désastreuse impression d’avoir affaire à des plantations de bananes… Jusqu’ici, Justin a réussi à louvoyer entre la morale politique et les rapports de force souvent abusifs, mais la ferme attitude de notre Premier ministre et celle de sa Ministre des affaires étrangères dans la crise avec l’Arabie Saoudite viennent jeter un pavé dans la mare : Devons-nous encourager le royaume héréditaire riche des milliards du pétrole, qui viole allègrement les droits de l’Homme, maintient des pratiques moyenâgeuses, brime les droits des femmes, pratique l’es- clavage, le fouet et autres supplices et finance la prolifération des mos- quées et du terrorisme… En dépit des considérations économiques? À la fin, désirons voir l’avenir de nos enfants aux mains de dirigeants comme ceux de l’Iran, de la Syrie, du Hamas ou de ceux de la Corée du Nord?
Justin Trudeau résistera-t-il fermement devant les menaces écono- miques de contrées dont la seule politique est d’acheter leurs adver- saires, et dont la seule morale est d’exploiter ses immenses ressources pétrolières au profit de 10.000 membres de sa famille royale, n’en laissant que des miettes pour son peuple et les travailleurs étrangers qui font tout le travail pour en faire un pays?... Nous le saurons dans un proche avenir.

For this initiative, they received the support of many commissioners from different school boards in Montreal, including Ms. Suzanne Marceau and Ms. Louise Leroux from the Commission scolaire Marguerite Bourgeoys, Ms. Renée- Chantal Belinga of the Commission scolaire de la Pointe-de-l’Île, Ms. Patricia Lattanzio of the English Montreal School Board (EMSB) and Ms. Marie-Josée Mastromonaco, Vice President of the Commission scolaire de Montréal (CSDM).
With a united voice, Ensemble Montréal and the participating school boards commis- sioners decried the current limit to the number of school crossing guards which has been set at around 520 for many years despite a growing number of students and the construction of new schools. Furthermore, they also called upon to change the process currently used to secure intersections, which consists in transferring existing resources to other intersections which are deemed be dangerous. «School crossing guards are essential to the safety of young people who walk and cycle between home and school. School boards agree that the number of school crossing guards is too low. The lack of school cross- ing guards at many intersections not only puts the lives of children at risk, but also forces many parents to drive their children to school. The problem is that the increased presence of vehicles near schools contrib- utes to feelings of insecurity. Quotas must be abolished so that the number of school crossing guards reflects the state of changing needs in the right place, at the right time», said Mr. Perez.
For a decade, Montreal’s school boards have seen the number of students and schools rise considerably. For example, the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur projects a rise of more than 1000 students per year within the Commission scolaire de la Pointe-de-l’Île for the next five years. In 2008- 2009, the Commission scolaire Marguerite Bourgeoys had 44,600 students across 73 schools, compared to 71,122 students and 85 schools in 2016-2017. The CSDM estimates that within 5 years, at least 15 new schools will have to be built to welcome the additional students.
«We are scrambling to increase the number of school crossing guards with no results. Parents are constantly asking for their presence at critical intersections so that their children can move safely and autonomously. It is not normal, if not irresponsible, to have to fight for reason to be heard while every- one recognizes the positive contribution of school crossing guards», said Ms. Marie- Josée Mastromonaco. More than 30% of elementary school students choose active transportation as a means of travelling between their home and school. Between 2013 and 2017, 140 children were injured by a vehicle in Montreal while commuting. The presence of school crossing guards at the intersections with the highest flow of vehicles is the element that most contributed to making children and their parents feel safe.
«In a context where cohabitation between road users is disrupted by construction sites and numerous detours, the relevance of school crossing guards no longer needs to be demonstrated. Many of Montreal’s schools are in dense and busy urban environments. School crossing guards are a priority! Not only do they make intersections safer, they also raise awareness about road safety. As a society, we promote active transportation from an early age. To do this, let us ensure that our youth have a safe environment», concluded Mr. Langevin.
Ensemble Montréal’s motion will be debated during the city council’s meeting on August 20th. Back to school Ensemble Montréal requests more school crossing guards to ensure the security of youth

GPS Coordinates: 45.934279, -74.346561 (Approximately) MLS: 23475798 Being a perfectionist can be a good thing, but only if it the tendency is kept within reasonable limits. If not, this character trait can become unhealthy and cause a lot of imbalance in a child’s life. How can parents judge if their child’s search for perfection is excessive? How can they help him or her to better manage it? The following advice may be of use.
Sure, we try to teach our children that if a thing is worth doing, it’s worth doing well. But that doesn’t mean everything has to be perfect. Perfectionism is harmful to our well-being when it results in additional stress. The constant dissatisfaction of striving for unattainable goals results in a frantic pace and constant self-doubt. If you notice this kind of attitude in your children, take action right away in order to help them regain their self-esteem. They must not be allowed to sink further into the vicious circle of perfectionism. Be a role model for your children in their progress towards a healthy attitude regarding effort and making mistakes. The help of a psychologist may also be appropriate.
SOME SOLUTIONS The best method to follow is to ease back one step at a time. Help your child find a way to change one behaviour at a time and grad- ually relax the rigid rules she has imposed on herself. Over time, she will understand that not all situations require the same degree of perfec- tion and that her loved ones do not require it either. She will learn to set achievable goals and take pleasure in attaining them, without worrying exclusively about succeeding. Teach her that making mistakes is a part of life and a part of learning.

For mom and dad, the new school year marks the return of the dreaded lunch box. Just think- ing about it gives you a headache? Don’t panic; the chore of preparing a lunch box doesn’t have to be tedious and monotonous. Here are five tips to help you make varied, healthy lunches that are easy to put together. 1. KEEPFRESH FRUIT ONHAND. Apples, pears, tangerines and bananas are always delicious, and they travel well. Wash fruit as soon as you get back from the grocery store so you can quickly put them in lunch boxes for a dessert or a snack. Why not make some healthy kabobs, alternating cheese and pieces of fruit. Your chil- dren will ask for them again and again. 2. PREPARE YOUR VEGETABLES IN ADVANCE. Cut them into strips, slices or wedges and prepare individual portions for the whole week. 3. COOK IN LARGE QUANTITIES. When prepa- ring meals, always make extra to freeze in lunch-sized portions. All you have to do is to thaw them in the fridge overnight and put them into the lunch boxes to be reheated in a microwave. You can also warm the food up in the morning and put it in an insulated container. Convenient, isn’t it.
4. VARY BREADS AND FILLINGS. Instead of always using sliced bread, try tortillas, bagels, ciabatta or pita. Replace lettuce with spinach, apple slices or grated carrots. Substitute mayon- naise with a tzatziki sauce. Be creative! 5. PLAY WITH PASTA. Cook macaroni, fusilli or other whole grain pasta in advance. In the morning, add some vegetables, ham, chicken or tuna and a little cheese for a nutritious meal that can be eaten warm or cold.

LIVE YOUR DREAM NEW NEW Do your teenagers sleep a lot? Good! In order to be fit and able to absorb lots of new informa- tion, adolescents should get between nine and ten hours of sleep a day. If your teens have a tendency to go to bed around midnight and then get up at seven in the morning to go to school, they’re probably suffering from chronic lack of sleep. Sleeping in till noon on Saturday won’t help them recover.
During adolescence, hormonal changes affect sleep. Melatonin and cortisol, two hormones that regulate sleeping and waking, can undergo abrupt changes in level. On top of that, many teenagers neglect their sleep because of a busy schedule. A young person who doesn’t get enough sleep will have trouble getting up in the morning and may lack concentration or be drowsy, dizzy, nervous, irritable and depressed. A chronic lack of sleep reduces a person’s learning and memory skills and can have a negative impact on school grades. To restore a normal sleep cycle that will improve their academic performance, encour- age your teenagers to adopt the following good habits: • Go to bed and get up every day at the same time.
• Turn off all screens (including cell phones) at least one hour before going to bed. • Establish a relaxing bedtime routine; try a glass of warm milk, a warm bath and listening to soft music. • Don’t drink any caffeine (coffee, tea, energy drinks) after the middle of the afternoon. Be sure to talk to a healthcare professional if your teenagers lack energy despite a stable sleep routine. Sleep, an important element in academic success In Canada, only 14 per cent of skilled trades apprentices are women, and the vast majo- rity of them are in cosmetology, early child- hood education and food services. Traditio- nally male-dominated trades — carpentry, welding, plumbing, electrical work — are still dominated by male workers. In these positions, women account for only three per cent of the workforce. And yet, it’s wit- hin the male-dominated trades that the most substantial wages are found. Women wishing to earn good salaries should defini- tely consider these occupations. OBSTACLES Oftentimes, the biggest hurdle women face when it comes to entering the trades is lack of awareness. Many women simply aren’t cognizant that skilled trades careers are even an option for them. Initiatives to get young women thinking about jobs in the trades are popping up in high schools and colleges in every province. Breaking the stigma that surrounds the trades in general and presenting accurate information to to- morrow’s workforce will pave the way for better awareness.
GAINING SKILLS Across the country, trade schools are reaching out to women and encouraging them to enrol in programs where they can gain the capabilities nee- ded to thrive in skilled trades careers. While it can be intimidating to pick up a power tool for the first time, acquiring such new abilities is far easier in a classroom than on a jobsite. Wo- men wanting to build confidence through hands-on learning should look to trade schools to find the men- tors and training they need. Additionally, they may wish to speak with other women who’ve worked in trades to get a sense of the field’s chal- lenges and how to overcome them. Women in the trades

Looking back a decade, it’s hard to resist using a cliché when saying that it seems like only yesterday Justin Trudeau was setting his sights on becoming the Member of Parliament for Papineau. And yet it has indeed been a decade since Canada’s current Prime Minister walked into the Park Extension public library to sit down with Nouvelles Parc Extension News for his first inter- view with us, as he prepared to seek the Liberal Party nomination to run in Papineau in the 2008 federal election.
In a wide-ranging interview last week with Newsfirst Multimedia in conjunction with the upcoming 10th anniversary of his first being elected, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau described his beginnings in federal politics as “a steep learn- ing curve,” although “that was the whole point,” he said. He chose Papineau According to a by-now well-known account, Justin Trudeau had been contemplating entering federal politics for some time. As early as 2007, rumours circulated that he was seeking the Liberal nomination in the riding of Outremont, although Outremont had apparently already been staked out for Stéphane Dion.
As the story goes, this motivated Trudeau to choose the neighbouring riding of Papineau, where he easily won the Liberal nomination on April 29, 2007. “Ten years ago, picking a place that I knew would teach me not just what mattered for local issues but for the country was at the heart of what I was trying to do,” he said last week, looking back. “I had a lot to learn and I knew that I would work very, very hard and learn.” ‘Make no small dreams…’ Nearly five years ago, when Justin Trudeau announced his intentions to run for the leader- ship of the Liberal Party of Canada, he did so at a rally held in the auditorium at Park Extension’s William Hingston community centre. In a speech, quoting the German humanist philosopher Johann Goethe, Trudeau confidently declared: “Make no small dreams – they have not the power to move the soul.” Last week, recalling that moment, Trudeau said: “That speaks larger than just a run for politics. It’s the kind of world we want to build – the kind of communities we want to have. When you’re not thinking big about the future, if you’re not even dreaming big, you’ll never achieve anything. So this idea of taking this community and achieving great things has been at the centre of everything I’ve done.” The lessons of Papineau Trudeau acknowledges that the riding of Papineau taught him some of his most vital lessons for understanding politics. “It’s Papineau that taught me how to be a politician,” he said. “You know, people often talk about my father and the influence he had. And, yes, I learned a little how to be a prime minister from him. But it wasn’t he who taught me how to be the MP for a riding, to understand and listen to people.
“My father got into politics with ideas which really were given shape by his writings in Cité Libre, the Quiet Revolution. He had goals with regards to bilingualism, with regards to the consti- tution which were very clear to him. Of course, I have ideas and values. But a lot of who I am as a politician and as prime minister was taught on the terrain by the people I hoped to represent.” Also learned from Deros Back in 2007, one of the first local politicians Justin Trudeau met, only to subsequently find himself running against her for the Liberal nomin- ation in Papineau, was longtime Park Extension city councillor Mary Deros. Trudeau says today that he gained some basic knowledge of politics from Deros, who still represents the area. “Mary wasn’t just the first politician I met,” he said. “She was my first challenge. She and I were both running for the Liberal nomination. And she was someone who was incredibly well-re- spected in Papineau – particularly in Park Ex. And I learned very quickly that she was at everything, and if I wanted to keep up with her and actually be successful I had to go to as many events as she did. I had to learn to connect with people in a genuine way as she did. She is someone who continues to be an inspiration to me in terms of how she remains connected to the people she serves.” Local work still to be done We asked Trudeau if there was anything he had hoped to accomplish as the MP for Papineau over the past 10 years that remains to be done. “For sure, we’re still waiting for the level crossing on Ogilvy,” he said, referring to the unresolved railway issue with Canadian Pacific, while adding he also would have liked to see the vacant former Chinese community hospital on Saint Denis St. in Villeray repurposed and the Metro blue line extended past Saint-Michel.
In the course of the interview, Trudeau also answered questions on a number of current issues facing the country, including Canada’s process- ing of immigrants and refugees, as well as the country’s gun control policies in the aftermath of mass shooting incidents in Toronto in July and in Fredericton NB in August. Q and A’s with the PM While Canada has long had a generally open policy towards immigrants and refugees, that image has found itself challenged lately by the newly-elected Conservative government of Ontario, which has complained to Ottawa about costs associated with accepting refugees cross- ing over the U.S. border, and Quebec poised to possibly elect a similarly-minded CAQ govern- ment. We asked Prime Minister Trudeau if Ottawa is anticipating any significant changes in its immi- gration and refugee strategies.
“First of all, one of the big changes is that we invested significantly more in streamlining, in improving, in giving more resources to our immigration and refugee system so that we can deal with backlogs and family reunifications,” responded Trudeau. “We have the capacity to process more people, to being families together, to allow them to integrate better and allow them to be successful quicker in Canada and in their communities. Fine-tuning the refugee system “That is already a big step forward – recognizing that regular arrivals are putting extra pressure on the system, but pressure that we are able to respond to. We are still processing everyone who crosses the border. They will go through the immi- gration and refugee system in its integrality. And we recognize that there are extra costs for Ontario and for Quebec and that’s why we are sending extra money to Quebec and to Ontario and to other provinces who need help on housing the refugees.” Given the recent shooting incidents in two of Canada’s largest cities, and the looming possibility that U.S.-style gun carnage is spilling over into this country, we asked the prime minister whether his government is contemplating any changes to Canada’s gun legislation with regards to licensing and firearms control.
Trudeau on gun control “We brought in fairly strong common sense gun legislation in the spring that already does a significant job in making sure there are more controls and making it safer for our communities,” he replied. “But there are a lot of questions about can we do more. And we’re very much looking, talking with Canadians, talking with people around the world about different ways of moving forward to keep Canadians even safer.” Finally, with a federal election looming in late 2019, we asked the Prime Minister whether (depending on the outcome of the election) he would be willing to serve as leader of the Official Opposition? “I’m not going to answer that,” he said with a grin. “I’m focused on winning the election. That’s not a question I’m going to entertain.” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau quoted to our journalist Martin C. Barry the German humanist philosopher Johann Goethe.Trudeau confidently declared: “Make no small dreams – they have not the power to move the soul.” MARTIN C. BARRY
10 • Nouvelles Parc-Extension News • 17 août / August 17, 2018 Rosemount Technology Centre gives its graduates skills for life Discover Quebec’s largest English-speaking vocational centre A s virtually everyone who has completed their training at Rosemount Technology Centre has learned, plenty of jobs await RTC’s graduates. Located in the heart of Montreal, RTC is one of the most successful professional career facilities in the province. As Quebec’s largest English-language vocational training centre, RTC offers full-time Ministry of Education career programs to students who are not only from Montreal, but also from more distant regions such as the Eastern Townships and the Outaouais. Tops for training RTC is structured as a business-educational environment, with computer labs and technology rooms similar to what would be found in commercial or industrial settings. In some of its departments, such as Printing and Digital Layout, and Numerical Control Machine Tool Operation (CNC), RTC is the leader in terms of its equipment for training.
“Right now we are number one in the city,” says Harry Michalopoulos, RTC’s Director. “For all our students who seek employment in their field of study, within three months 90 per cent of them find jobs. People come here, finish the program in a year-and-a-half, and they’re working. I think that says something.” With a large staff of teachers and instructors who are experts in their domains, RTC offers nine different programs: Automated Systems in Electromechanics, Cabinetmaking, Computer Graphics Techniques, Furniture Finishing, Industrial Drafting (CAD), Industrial Machine Operator, Machining Techniques, Numerical Control Machine Tool Operation (CNC), and Printing and Digital Layout. According to Zhuzi Cui, a teacher with the Computer Graphics Department, students learn through hands-on use of various computer softwares how to create designs and layouts for virtually any kind of medium, including paper, textile or plastic. “When something has a design on it, somebody has to create it, and that’s what our students are learning,” she says.
Press operators needed While the print medium is evolving, the printing industry is adapting itself with newer and more efficient presses which require a smaller but better-trained work force. As such, “there will always be press operators,” says Antonio Leone, RTC’s co- ordinator of digital layout and printing. Some of the advanced equipment in the printing department to provide training includes a $900,000 Heidelberg four-color printing press. It’s a smaller version of a $35 million press RTC print technology graduates could end up using on the job. Sixteen of the 17 students in Leone’s last graduating class are working in the printing industry today.
Aerospace industry employs cabinet makers “Wood is nature’s plastic,” says Kerry Bullis, instructor in the Cabinetmaking program. “We have many students who come in here with bachelor degrees in fine arts who want to work with their hands and with a sculptural material.” Other graduates from the program can end up working as sub-contractors to architects or builders who seek to include elements of fine wood to the interior design of their buildings. As Bullis notes, the demand for artisans of this sort will only increase as an older generation of woodworking trades people take retirement. In fact the cabinet making graduates of RTC are in management and other working positions in Montreal’s Aerospace industry. “Our graduates work making the high end interiors of private luxury business jets”, adds Mr. Bullis.
