Reading is a right, not a privilege.

What would you do if the benefits of reading were missing from your life… how would you learn, work, or just get lost in a great story?

The right to read of blind and partially sighted Canadians is in jeopardy. Without immediate government funding for accessible library services, books and essential information in accessible formats will be missing from their lives.

We need your help now to urge Canada’s federal, provincial and territorial governments to partner with CNIB to support and sustain the CNIB Library and its vital services.

Beware of fraudulent communications

Occasionally, taxpayers may receive, either by telephone, mail, or email, a communication that claims to be from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) but is NOT. In all these cases, the communication requests personal information, such as a social insurance, credit card, bank account, and passport numbers, from the taxpayer. These fraudulent communications are also referred to as scams or phishing.

Invariably, the communication argues that this personal information is needed so that the taxpayer can receive a refund or benefit payment. Another common scam refers the person to a Web site resembling the CRA's Web site where the person is asked to verify their identity by entering personal information. Taxpayers should not respond to such fraudulent communications.

To better equip taxpayers to identify those communications that do not come from the CRA, the following general guidelines are provided.

The CRA does NOT do the following:

The CRA will not request personal information of any kind from a taxpayer by email.
The CRA will not divulge taxpayer information to another person unless formal authorization is provided by the taxpayer.
The CRA will not leave any personal information on an answering machine.

When in doubt, ask yourself the following:

Am I expecting additional money from the CRA?
Does this sound too good to be true?
Is the requester asking for information I would not include with my tax return?
Is the requester asking for information I know the CRA already has on file for me?
How did the requester get my email address?
Am I confident I know who is asking for the information?

The CRA will continue to post notifications of fraudulent communications as we become aware of them and encourages you to check our Web site should you have concerns.


You will find examples of a fraudulent letter, email, and online refund forms on the CRA's Web site. As per fraudulent telephone calls, a telecommunications provider has recently been leaving messages for individuals and businesses to call the CRA at a 1-800 or 1-866 number. On dialing the number, callers are then asked to call another number at a cost to them. These telephone messages are not from the CRA and should be ignored by taxpayers.

If you have responded to a fraudulent communication and have become a victim of fraud, please contact the Royal Canadian Mounted Police's Phonebusters by email at or call 1-888-495-8501. For more information, please see Public Safety Canada's Web site at

Canada’s international blues vocalist, Shakura S’Aida, is using her voice to aid relief efforts in Haiti. “Angels on High” - a fitting title from her new album, Brown Sugar — is now available for download, to aid victims of the Haiti Earthquake.
Every time the song is purchased for $1.00, proceeds will be donated to Free The Children, an international children’s charity which is working together with Partners in Health to provide long-term health care, education and relief for children affected by the disaster.
The track is downloadable through the artist’s website:
The song was written by Shakura S’Aida and her band partner, Donna Grantis, and is a highlight of her new album, which has already been released in Europe and will be on sale in Canada and the United States April 13. Both Shakura and Donna are currently on tour in Europe as part of the Blues Caravan tour.
Said the singer: “Both Donna and I feel that the earthquake in Haiti has reminded us that we are all connected, we are all family. We are indeed each other’s angels and we need to take care of each other now and always.”

Bigbang's Greni Nominated for Norwegian Grammy

Øystein Greni
(above, center) of Bigbang was nominated this week for the 2009 Norwegian Grammy's Spellemannsprisen, in the category of Popular Music Composer for the album Edendale.

Edendale, which went platinum in Norway and was just released in North America this month, is notable in that while this is the sixth nomination for the band (prior nominations include three for best album, one for best newcomers and one for best song), it is the first for Greni as a composer.
"I am honored and thrilled to be nominated as a songwriter," says Greni."When you are in a band, you sometimes feel people don't pay attention to the songwriting. It's all about the guitar tones or the musicianship. In our case it's all about the live show we put on. To be acknowledged on the strength of our songs, which may be part of the secret to our live success, is a big compliment. It touches the hardworking loner artist in me, as opposed to the less vulnerable stagediving frontman."

The televised awards show will be held on 6th of March at the Oslo Spektrum.

Bigbang will be performing at NX35 festival in Denton TX, March 11-16 and at the SXSW Music Conference in Austin March 17-21.
JPGS, bio, etc. are available here: Please let me know if you would like to set up an interview or need a review copy of Edendale.

Hi All,
Dengue Fever is participating in the Haiti Relief Concert at the El Rey Theatre, in Los Angeles, CA, on Saturday, February 6. See below for details. For additional event info, please contact the Operation USA Event Organizers listed at the bottom of the release. For interviews, materials etc. on Dengue Fever, please visit or contact me at the info below.

For Immediate Release:
KCRW presents Haiti Relief Concert at El Rey Theatre, Saturday, Feb. 6th 2010
Featuring Hepcat, Dengue Fever, Joey Altruda, The Lions, Very Be Careful, The Tuffingtons
All Proceeds donated for Operation USA’s Relief Efforts in Haiti
Los Angeles, CA (January 22) In response to the recent devastating earthquakes to hit Port-au-Prince and its surrounding areas, KCRW presents and the historic El Rey Theatre hosts a Haiti Relief Concert on Saturday, February 6th. Ticket proceeds from this night will be donated to Operation USA's Haiti relief efforts.
The worldly line-up on what would have been Bob Marley's 65th birthday includes ska/rocksteady revivalists Hepcat; Cambodian-American indie-rock band Dengue Fever; a very special set by veteran bassist Joey Altruda’s Crucial Riddims & Reggae Greats Revue featuring Wailing Souls, Elan, Eljai and special guests; cumbia band Very Be Careful; all-star reggae group The Lions; experimental rock outfit The Tuffingtons; Echodelic Soundsystem; and DJ Miles Perlich. The evening will be hosted by veteran radio DJ Junor Francis and Alexis de la Rocha of Live Daily.
Operation USA is an international relief agency that helps communities at home and abroad overcome the effects of disasters, disease and endemic poverty by providing privately-funded relief, reconstruction and development aid. OpUSA is appealing for donations of funds to purchase health care materials, water purification supplies and food supplements which they will ship to Port-au-Prince, Haiti and its surrounding areas from its base in the Port of Los Angeles.
OpUSA’s slogan is “Give and it gets there”. And it does, with 98% of every dollar donated going to on the ground relief. That’s why The Rockery, organizers of this event, chose OpUSA to receive the funds generated on February 6th. Every year millions of charitable donations never make it to their destination. “When you donate to Operation USA, you immediately start to make a difference in the lives of those who need it most.”
“Ska, the effervescent mid-'60s precursor to reggae, was as crucial to Jamaican pop as rockabilly was here in America, and while each endured for only a brief span of years, both of these influential styles constantly reoccur, thanks to cyclical eruptions of well-intentioned but oft-ludicrous revivalists. Ska stewards Hepcat are the noble exception to that rule, a band that has perfected the art of owning the style's musical bedrock and upholding its traditions with excruciating precision even while informing it with carefully administered jolts of their own creative impulses. That's a damn nifty trick, and over the course of the past two decades, despite several extended hiatuses, personnel departures, even death, Hepcat has remained an exemplary force, a group whose combination of technique, good taste and genuine sincerity results in music that is not only moving — it also really moves.” (Johnny Whiteside, LA Weekly)
Dengue Fever
Dengue Fever's psychedelic take on the Cambodian pop sounds of the 60s makes them one of rock 'n' roll's most unique success stories. They draw enthusiastic crowds from LA to the UK, from Maui to Moscow, and leave critics rummaging through their thesauruses looking for new superlatives to describe their sound. Dengue Fever is Chhom Nimol – who sang regularly for the King and Queen of Cambodia - Ethan Holtzman (keyboards), Zac Holtzman (guitar), David Ralicke (horns), Senon Williams (bass) and Paul Smith (drums). The band’s music has been featured in a number of film and television shows including City of Ghosts, Must Love Dogs, Broken Flowers, HBO’s hit series True Blood and twice on Showtime’s Weeds. They have released three albums, Dengue Fever, Escape From Dragon House, Venus On Earth and released their DVD/CD soundtrack to the documentary Sleepwalking Through The Mekong on April 14, 2009. They recently released Dengue Fever Presents: Electric Cambodia, a compilation of lost Cambodian classics from the 1960’s and 1970’s.
Joey Altruda’s Crucial Riddims & Reggae Greats Revue
The music of veteran bassist/bandleader Joey Altruda features a variety of musicians depending upon the context – from ska, reggae and Latin to jump blues, lounge and beyond. Joey’s known for his work with Don “Sugarcane” Harris during the ‘80s in the band Tupelo Chain Sex and he co-led Jump With Joey with drummer Willie McNeil from 1989-1999. Over the years Joey has worked with a plethora of legends, including Plas Johnson, Bo Diddley, Joe Strummer, Ernest Ranglin, Jack Costanzo, Ernie Andrews, Rico Rodriguez, Lloyd Knibbs, Mongo Santamaria, Patato Valdez, Chocolate Armenteros and Candido Cameron. With his super group Crucial Riddims, Joey is assembling a Reggae Greats Revue where he will be joined by some of the scenes most talented musicians and singers, paying homage to Jamaican music. Guests will include legendary duo Wailing Souls, long-time Wailers singer Elan, Belizean singer Eljai, Persephone Laird of Ocean 11, and more singers to be announced.
Very Be Careful
Very Be Careful is a homegrown L.A. band that plays Colombian vallenato music, a traditional cumbia sound that centers around the accordion, backed with percussion and bass. Members include Ricardo "Ricky G" Guzman on accordion and vocals, Arturo "Brickems" Guzman on bass, Craig "Peabody" Martin on guacharaca, Dante "The Rip" Ruiz on campana, and Richard "Mil Caras" Panta on caja vallenata. From the streets of Austin’s SXSW and Germany’s World Cup Tour ’06 to the cultural pinnacles of Chicago’s Summer Dance Series, New York’s Central Park Summerstage, Los Angeles’ Grand Performances, Glastonbury Music Festival, and Fuji Rock Festival, to NY’s SOBs, LA’s House of Blues and backyard BBQs, VBC has tamed the beasts within or unleashed the ones without. They have performed alongside Joe Strummer, Alfredo Gutierrez, Antibalas, Carlos Vives, Dub Trio, Grupo Niche, Kronos Quartet, Gogol Bordello. VBC’s latest album, Horrible Club (Downtown Pijao 2009), is a collection of bootleg recordings from 1998-2009 and captures the reckless abandon of a VBC show where anything can happen.
The Lions
The Lions are Los Angeles’ premier 12-piece all-star reggae band featuring members of Hepcat, Orgone, Breakestra, Macy Gray’s band, The Expanders, Ocean 11, Connie Price & the Keystones and Rhythm Roots Allstars. The result of an impromptu recording session by some of the scene’s most soulful and notable musicians and singers, The Lions created grooves that went beyond Jamaican music by combining new and traditional rhythms, and dub mixing mastery with the global sounds of Ethiopia and Colombia. Their album Jungle Struttin’ was released on Ubiquity Records in 2008 and they are now releasing songs on their own Lions Bread Records – including the singer/DJ combination “This Generation” and the laid back instrumental “New Girl”. Their live set transcends any particular genre but is best described as a healthy mix of vocal and dub tracks, balancing classic reggae and soul cuts as well as new originals. The Lions have had the honor of being the backing band on two occasions for legends The Heptones, and have supported The Aggrolites, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Antibalas and Bedouin Soundclash.
The Tuffingtons
The Tuffingtons are a six-piece unit made up of native Angelenos, who have created their own blend of ska and disco, with a couple nods to bands like Television, Madness and Buzzcocks. They have called their music everything from AM punk to island-arena rock. The Tuffingtons are gaining a reputation for their live shows, which usually consist of something like animal ‘sacrifice’, and there is a very lifelike and life-size puppet. Their shows are better experienced than explained. Their debut full-length record, produced by Jacob Bercovici AKA Mr. Sandwiches (Warpaint, The Lady Tigra) will be out this summer. Their current EP Egregious will be released this February.
Tickets are $25 and will be available starting Saturday, January 23rd at 10am at, 1-800-745-3000, select Macy’s, all Ritmo Latino stores, and the El Rey’s restaurant Cowboys & Turbans. Cowboys & Turbans is open Monday thru Friday from Noon to 9pm and on show nights (cash only). If tickets remain, walk up sales will be available at the El Rey box office, opening at the door time on the night of the event. El Rey Theatre is located at 5515 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90036. It’s an all ages, general admission, standing room only venue.
Thanks to Operation USA, The Rockery, Junor Francis, KCRW, Live Daily, LA Weekly, It’s Alive Media, Foundation Media, Shangri-La Music, Echodelic Soundsystem, Goldenvoice and El Rey Theatre for helping make this event possible.

Seb Agnello Short Bio:

Since his band, “The Lords Of London”, topped the Canadian Charts when he was just 14 years old, Seb Agnello has performed with the likes of Jimi Hendrix, The Mothers Of Invention, Marvin Gaye, Etta James, The Youngbloods , Booker T. and The M.G’s, and others; opening shows for The Flaming Lips, John Otway and Nashville legends Hank Snow, Charlie Pride and Hee Haw's Gordie Tapp. Seb was music director for Texas musical satirist Kinky Friedman during his Canadian tour. Seb also produced, wrote, directed and starred in the television specials "An Evening Of Phil Ochs" and "Three Faces Of Protest" for the Rogers Cable Network. Seb has released nine solo albums and has performed on and/or produced over 200 other albums. He has gained critical acclaim and wide-spread recognition for his song-writing, musicianship, and ability to entertain an audience. Internationally respected for his guitar playing, Seb will tell you "the guitar's just a prop…it gets me onstage where I can shoot my mouth off”. Above all else, Seb is a protest singer. Scathing, hilarious, politically incorrect and always entertaining, Seb can turn the largest venue into an intimate and exciting place to be. Seb’s latest CD “Take Your Lumps” was released in March 2008 on the Turtle Shell Music label.


To Epilepsy Support Groups:

My name is Heather Fowler and I am the Partnership Development Manager at Dog Guides Canada (

I believe that most of your societies are aware of our relatively new program, “Seizure Response Dog Guides”. We currently have 15 spots open on our waiting list. If you know of someone who fits the criteria below and is wishing to have a dog of their own that can assist with their seizures, please forward our contact info.

The following is information on Seizure Support Dog Guides:

A Seizure Response Dog is a dog that is trained to respond to certain types of seizures. The dogs are trained to react to the person’s physical cues once the seizure has started and to get people’s attention. This is done by the dog barking for help or going to get help within the home environment. The dogs can be trained to active the Lifeline system that will directly summon emergency help through a phone system. The dog is also trained to lie quietly beside the person once the seizure is over, to give comfort to the individual who may be fearful or disorientated.

  • The ideal clients must be the age of 8 and over and have clinical diagnoses of epilepsy from their Neurologist
  • Must have a few epileptic seizures per month
  • Must be able to attend a 19 day training course that runs 6 days a week in Oakville, Ontario (all travel and accommodation expenses are covered by the charity)
  • Must have good cognitive awareness, ability to follow instructions, and have a fairly good memory that would allow them to retain the information being instructed in class.

If you know of an individual who could benefit from having a dog guide, please have them contact Dog Guides Canada at (905) 842-2891. Thank you for allowing me to share this information with you. I would be pleased if you could forward this email to any contacts you might have, to help us make people aware of our services. We have helped change so many lives of children and adults with epilepsy and we can help many more.

Thank you for your time.
