    Prime Minister Stephen Harper hinted the government may adjust mortgage rules in 2011 to help Canadians avoid going deeper into debt.   “We’ve tightened mortgage rules before,” Harper told CTV during a year-end interview that aired on Christmas Day. “If we have to do that again, we will.” Harper also committed to eliminating the federal deficit but will not use “slash and burn” cuts, particularly in the critical areas of health and education.     Pre-qualify for your next home with Lew MacDonald,  Mortgage Broker at Verico Tailor Made Mortgages in Kelowna BC at www.MortgageBrokersOkanagan.com Lew MacDonald Okanagan broker / owner Verico Tailor Made Mortgages 250-862-6101 Email: Lewis@VTMM.ca Online Application   www.MortgageBrokersKelowna.com       Financing Available for BC: CMHC ...

It wss Julia's who invited me to join the Arts Awards Committee where I am now filling the Marketing Chair role. Next on the agenda was a Book Launch and Reading, by a new author Stan Chung.
