Nestle Offer to Oye Readers: Get Free Nestle Baby Backpack
They say when it’s New Years day, the Polar Bears come out and play. Well, this year was no exception, as mighty brave Singhs and Kaurs represented the Toronto Maple Sikhs at the Toronto Polar Bear Dip on Jan 1, 2011 in the frigid cold waters of Lake Ontario.
Bleeding Maple Leaf blue, the team had three goals, the first goal was to have more participants on the team this year and that was easily achieved when we more than doubled the size of our team to 24 dippers; the second goal was to have women participate and we had 6 Kaurageous ladies take the dip, they include Mandip Kaur Sandher, Swaranjit Kaur Sandher, Harmeet Kaur Rai, Amarjit Kaur Dhadda, Ramann Kaur Patara, and Kiran Kaur Rai; and finally the most important goal was to be the top fundraising team, and we more than achieved that by raising over $7000 in support of Habitat for Humanity Toronto to help raise funds to build affordable housing in Toronto for families living in need. In fact, we have raised over $10 000 the past two years in support of this worthy cause.
Formed in February of 2009, Naya Raasta :: The New Road is a group of individuals of South Asian (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Afghanistan, Guyana, Trinidad and East Africa) background from the GTA area, that have come together to share the life altering experience of Divorce or separation. We learn from each other how to put the past behind us and move in a positive direction in life as individuals and as parents.
We encourage anyone who is either on the verge of divorce or separation, or even thinking about it, to please come and meet others who have faced the same tough decisions. New members welcomed.
Next Meeting: Saturday, January 22, 2010 @ Noon till 2 pm Venue: York Woods Library, 1785 Finch Avenue West, Toronto, Ont

Bring the British North America Act back to Canada for display
BringBackTheAct.ca is national, grassroots movement launched by a group of Canadians from all walks of life. It is asking Canadians to support a petition to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the British government to return to Canada the British North America Act – Canada’s *original* Constitution – in time for its 150th anniversary celebrations in Charlottetown 2014, and Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017.
The campaign is the brainchild of Lori Abittan, President and CEO of Multimedia Nova Corporation. Her 52-week Canadian civic literacy/history series The Canadian Experience (http://www.cdnexperience.ca) now running in over 70 multicultural publications (including the Oye Times!), was the inspiration to launch BringBackTheAct.ca to invite all Canadians to help gain access to the basic documents which are the foundation of our nationhood. To enable such historical documents to be entrusted to the Canadian Government and displayed for all Canadians to see will represent the last step Canada takes to finally ‘repatriate’ our Constitution.
