Lessons in kindness Christina Myers staff reporter

There are many lessons learned at Parkcrest Children’s Centre in Burnaby. The children there learn their A, B, C’s and 1, 2, 3’s; they learn how to hold a crayon, and how to wash their hands before snack. But for the next few weeks, they’ll be learning some special lessons about sharing, generosity and kindness. For the third year in a row, the preschool and out-of-school care centre is participating in the Burnaby Christmas Bureau’s ‘Angel Project’, which helps bring in toy donations for the bureau’s toy room for children from low-income families. “We have a very, very generous community here,” said preschool teacher Teri Guglielmi. Each year, she explained, children would excitedly bring in holiday gifts for their teachers; a few years ago, feeling overwhelmed by all the presents, Guglielmi suggested an alternative: the children

City veterans’ home to lay off unionized staff Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The Hospital Employees’ Union has learned that more than 90 of its unionized health-care workers are getting pink slips at a Burnaby care home for elderly veterans. According to the union, the workers will be laid off at the end of April 2013, following a decision by the centre to contract out housekeeping, food and nutrition, laundry, clerical and activity staff. “Contracting out has become the easy way out for facility administrators facing

dents.” The union also pointed out that B.C.’s ombudsperson, Kim Carter, has recommended the provincial Health Ministry, “develop safeguards to ensure that seniors in residential care are not adversely affected by large-scale staff replacement.” According to the union, contracting out to private companies that pay low wages and offer few benefits has become common practice for B.C. long-term care facilities that face reductions in funding from health authorities.

budget crunches, but it comes at a high cost to residents who will lose trusted staff and to the workers who will lose their jobs,” said union spokesperson Bonnie Pearson, in a press release. “Many of the workers have been at George Derby for more than 20 years and have long-standing relationships with the veteran residents and their families. The loss of familiar, experienced and trusted staff members is traumatic for seniors living in long-term care facilities. Studies have recognized the negative impact that disruptions in continuity of care such as contracting out have on resi-

George Derby Centre, said the centre made a difficult decision in order to increase the number of care hours the residents receive, and the main reason for the change was because the residents are more frail and have complex care needs. “What we’re doing is looking at the funding we do receive and how we can best use that funding to meet the needs of our residents,” Mitchell said. “Fraser Health has increased our funding over the past couple of years, … but we obviously operate within established Union Page 4

CONFLICT AT CO-OP

FOR SCHOOLS

Racist note alarms co-op resident

Quake money needed

Alfie Lau

staff reporter

Nazuri Awale has lived at the Avalon Coop at Cumberland Place and 16th Avenue for the past decade, and it hasn’t always been easy. Along with her four young children and husband, the East African Somali Muslim woman has tried to integrate into Canadian culture and get along with her neighbours, but that hasn’t always gone well. On Sept. 26, Awale came home from picking up her kds at school and said she found a note slipped between her screen door and front door. The note, which looks like graffiti and is done in reddish-orange ink, says “We hate nigers Move the f*** out.” An angry and scared Awale called the police, lodging a complaint and creating a file for the police to follow up on. “It was very hard for my daughter because she didn’t know what that word meant,” said Awale. “I had to explain to her that it was not a proper word.” But the problems didn’t start with that September note, as Awale’s concerns go back several years. Awale has sent numerous letters to her co-op and to other associations she believes are affiliated with her co-op. In an April email that Awale forwarded to the Burnaby NOW, she set out her concerns. “My children have experienced racial comments for some time now, one particular event took place on June 7, 2011 ... regarding racial comments addressed to my daughter, then nine years of age, now 10 years old, who felt humiliated and refused to play (in) the complex for some time (and) she became very sad and emotionally hurt.” Awale also alleges that her seven-yearold son was subjected to similar racial comments in March 2012 while at school. “My son has been very emotionally damaged and hurt,” Awale states in her letter as she outlines how another child told her child that they shouldn’t play together. Geoffrey Dabbs, a lawyer with Gehlen, Dabbs Lawyers in downtown Vancouver, is the spokesperson for the co-op and its board. Dabbs said the board has taken Awale’s concerns seriously, but it doesn’t appear that Awale’s claim is against the co-op as a collective entity. Dabbs explained that when Awale first wrote about her concerns earlier this year, the board talked to all the parties and differing stories came out. After this September’s incident, the board 6

Co-op controversy: Burnaby resident Nazuri Awale shows the note that was placed at her front door.

also looked into the matter, but there was no evidence of who may have left the note on Awale’s door. The co-op board did send out a letter to all residents on Oct. 4 stating the co-op is committed to a culture of diversity and the note that was left on Awale’s door was unacceptable. But without proof of who may have left that note, the co-op could go no further, said Dabbs. Awale also addressed her email to Sue Moorhead, education director for the Cooperative Housing Federation of British Columbia. Moorhead responded, via email: “I am sorry to learn of the difficulties you are experiencing in your co-op. “CHF B.C. is your co-op’s federation. We provide a variety of services to co-ops and we work to help co-ops when problems come up. But co-ops govern themselves. When an individual member has a prob-

lem, the way to get a resolution is to appeal to your elected board. Ideally, your co-op will be able to work together to resolve problems. “This is why we recommend you write a letter to your co-op board of directors about your concerns. “CHF B.C. is unable to assist or intervene in co-op issues or disputes except at the invitation of the co-op’s board of directors. We would be pleased to respond to a request from your board to assist in this matter, such as providing a mediator. If you think that would be helpful, you can suggest that to the directors.” Awale remains frustrated with how the situation has escalated. “I felt unsupported and neglected and this matter has affected our family,” Awale said in an email to the Burnaby NOW. “This community should be (a) loving and happy community, not a community distinguished and separated by color.”

The Burnaby school district is hoping to secure additional funding from the B.C. Education Ministry to make local schools more earthquake-proof. Greg Frank, the district’s secretary-treasurer, told the NOW that a number of schools have been seismically upgraded, the most recent being Burnaby Central Secondary. “We’ve got one project still in process, and that’s Gilmore Elementary School, and we’re hoping to have that completed by early next calendar year,” Frank said. The Education Ministry has approved in principle a seismic upgrade for Alpha Secondary School, and Frank said that consultants and engineers will estimate the scope of the work and costs involved. “We would very much like to see that school renewed at the same time in terms of being replaced or partially replaced,” he said. “I don’t think it will be cheaper than just doing the seismic upgrade, but in the long term, it would be cheaper to just replace it.” According to Frank, the building is at the end of its life and needs more work than just seismic upgrades. “You’ve got a building that’s 60 years old, mechanical systems are at end-of-life, building envelope is old, single pane windows, roof problems, structurally (it’s) not built for today’s education environment,” he said. The district will submit a capital plan to the school board for approval soon, and Frank said they are planning to request more Education Ministry funding to complete seismic upgrades of the remaining higher risk buildings in the district. According to a provincial government assessment, Burnaby’s schools most in need of seismic upgrades are Montecito Elementary, Stride Avenue Community School and Burnaby North Secondary. jmoreau@burnabynow.com

benchmarks,” she said when asked if the centre receives enough funding. “They have provided us with the level of funding that will allow us to operate within our mandate but to work towards providing the hours of care our residents would require.” When asked what measures the centre has in place to ensure the residents are not adversely impacted by the staffing change, Mitchell said she realized it was a change for them and their family members and that the centre was working closely with them to ensure that any transition would be seamless and would not disrupt the quality of services the residents receive.

The changes do not affect the nursing staff and those who help with feeding, bathing and grooming, Mitchell added. “The end result is our residents will benefit from this. We’ll be using the money we expect to save by contracting out ... to increase the hours of care our residents receive,” she said. The non-profit George Derby Centre provides complex care for roughly 300 veterans, mostly from the Second World War and the Korean War and more than 75 per cent of them suffer from dementia. The centre was originally built in 1946 as a home for disabled veterans, to help them rehabilitate and integrate into the community after returning home from the war.

As a young man in 2001, Kevin Berry faced a bright future, with several universities offering football scholarships. Instead, inspired by a sense of honour and duty, he chose to serve his country. Now he suffers the wounds of war hidden inside his mind, and faces a new battle with the government that sent him to Afghanistan. No sooner had his training begun when a worldchanging event occurred, setting into motion events that would leave him with post-traumatic stress disorder. “Sept. 11 was my second day of basic training,” he said. “We knew that Afghanistan was on the horizon.” Berry and the Thirdrd Battalion of the Royal Canadian Regiment landed in Kabul on Aug. 10, 2003 and went to work doing patrols of the city, giving him the sense of duty he had been looking for. “I was exactly where I wanted to be, doing exactly the job I wanted to do. I felt that I was achieving my purpose of being on this planet. I was doing good,” he said. They had a “robust tempo” of heading out into the city to maintain security and engage Taliban fighters during his six-month tour of duty. Despite never getting into a firefight, six months of close calls took its toll on Berry, as it did many soldiers. Several incidents along the way stand out for Berry as the genesis of his disorder. “I was on point, as machine gunners usually are, and this kid popped out in front of me maybe 20 metres down the alleyway. I could see right away he had a mortar bomb in his hands, and he came running right at me, screaming,” Berry said. “I cocked my weapon, brought it up, screamed ‘away!’ The kid stopped, terrified, wide-

t happened again. I heard another tunnel being dug by those who should know better. The scraping sound of shovels as newsmakers burrow beneath the surface, and then pull the grass over the hole behind them. Hoping, of course, that they will escape the media bloodhounds. Once upon a time in the reporting trade journalists would develop relationships with sources and folks who had access to public information. The unspoken, and sometimes spoken, understanding was pretty simple: if you’ve got some good news to spread around, we’re all ears. News is news – and anything that helps inform our readers about what’s happening in the community is worth publishing. The quid pro quo of that understanding was also pretty simple: if the source, or their organization or political party, landed in some difficult terrain, he or she would be available for comment. But that’s all changed in the last decade or so.

Presidential candidates unashamedly ignore questions, business leaders send out press releases with pre-chewed statements having no intention to speak to a reporter in person, politicians of all levels have ‘communicators’ who are essentially bodyguards designed to stall journalists. None of the latter is new. But during the last couple of years a new layer of hide-and-seek has developed: the email “interview.” This is where the person being asked questions wants the questions emailed in advance and will only reply in an email. Hardly spontaneous, and usually filtered through a “communicator,” the ploy was once boycotted by journalists. But the news business is a hungry beast, and journalists are pushed to have the “other side” in stories – even if the other side is a carefully crafted one-way email statement. So, readers are now seeing more and more – “X replied in an email.” And how do these media manipulators defend their behaviour? The usual way – blame the media. They say they don’t want to be misquoted, or taken out of context. I must say, I have some sympathy with those arguments. Who wants to be misquoted? But these justifications fall apart

What plans have you made for your children or elderly parents should a big quake rattle the B.C. coast? Do you have food, water, medications and pet food to last a few days? Do you know where to turn off the gas to your house? Does your neighbourhood have a plan?

If you only use a cellphone, how would you communicate if there was no power and your battery ran low?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Video would improve awareness

Dear Editor:

Re: Burnaby school district dealing with spike in high-risk behaviour following Amanda Todd case (Burnaby NOW, Oct. 19). As a Burnaby high school graduate, I believe preventing students from seeing Todd’s video won’t help with the issue of bullying. Students need to know that bullying is happening. Up until this June before my graduation, I did not realize that bullying to this degree could exist in the Fraser Valley. It seemed too distant to be real. There were lighter cases in my high school years, but students couldn’t empathize with the situation because not enough information was given to increase

awareness. Bullied students were never given peer support because no one knew about the incidents. These students would want support and help, but it’s impossible when their situations are kept from their peers. Amanda Todd’s case certainly raises awareness, but without guidance from teachers, this could be another case that can be dismissed from students’ lives. We shouldn’t let that happen. There are other students like Amanda who need help, and I can say there are definitely people who would help only if they knew about it. In essence, by showing the video to raise awareness, more students can actively support the cause to help decrease local bullying incidences and their devastating impact on affected students.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Load of ‘barnyard fertilizer’

Dear Editor:

For pure arrogance, it’s hard to beat the B.C. Liberals. Last month, the Christy Clark government made its second attempt to restrict third-party election advertising before the next provincial election. The B.C. Court of Appeal shot it down, calling it an unfair infringement on freedom of expression. At the same time, the B.C. Liberals launched an ongoing series of TV ads extolling the virtues of the B.C. Liberals – with the taxpayers footing the bill. They would call it providing important information for the guidance of the masses, I suppose. There is another term for it, involving a barnyard fertilizer. This from Premier Clark, who wasted more than $5 million in that ludicrous Stickman ad campaign last year as she fought to save the HST for her government and its big corporate friends against the wishes of most British Columbians. Instead of condemning the arrogant manner of the HST imposition by disgraced premier Gordon Campbell, she just moved the arrogance up a notch. The B.C. Liberals claimed third-party ad limits were necessary to stop interest groups such as the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the B.C. Nurses’ Union from staging ad campaigns in the run-up to elections. I would rather see measures to save taxpayers from helping re-elect arrogant politicians. Canada starts here. Tony Eberts, New Westminster

Affordable housing needed Dear Editor:

It’s a common refrain in Canada’s urban centres that there’s a chronic homelessness

problem that isn’t being addressed, with many of the main concerns being the lack of coordination between federal, provincial and municipal governments to try and create a unified program to address homelessness. This isn’t going to change, at least not until the May 2013 provincial election. It won’t change at the federal level, where the Harper government doesn’t have any interest in addressing homelessness and poverty. That leaves an immediate response in the hands of our municipalities, the level of government with the least amount of funding available to it, which makes many people believe it has the least ability to actually effect change in such a wideranging policy area. In fact, the municipal governments have a wide range of options available to start actively combatting homelessness, particularly in British Columbia. The key is in the Local Government Act; two obscure sections of the Act that are too deep in the details for some people. In part 26, division 7, sections 904 and 905, the Local Government Act provides municipalities with the ability to increase the density of a given part of any zone, in concert with the developer. These sections also indicate that municipalities can attach conditions to the developer in exchange for that increased development. Those conditions can comprise only two things; amenities, which the Burnaby city council has asked for often in the new large scale towers being produced, and affordable or special needs housing. What is stopping our municipal governments from taking a stand with developers and the industry and obtaining some real progress on affordable housing? Trevor Ritchie, Burnaby

Media: Ignoring questions continued from page 6

when the email responders simply refuse to answer the questions – any questions. What is most irritating is that those same people often come back and say they won’t deal with the media because the media fails to present a balanced view. They seem to miss the irony in their attack. They don’t provide the other side and then complain vociferously that the story is one-sided. And, of course, after I point all of this out in a column, they will also say the editor is biased. The truth of the matter is that what I dislike intensely is

the disrespect shown for readers and the public. Readers know when they’re being sold a bill of goods, and they know when politicians or leaders are hiding from the hard questions. They can connect the dots. They also know that politicians are counting on voters and readers having short attention spans and even shorter memories. Unfortunately, they are often right. What is also frustrating is that most of the folks who “go-to-ground” when journalists come knocking do themselves and their political parties and organizations a huge disservice.

Barring being caught in a sordid video tape with a primate on YouTube, most questions journalists ask can be answered without further incriminating oneself. There are, dare I say, simple, civil ways of spinning answers without having one’s nose grow. I’m sure there are even people who make a living teaching other people how to deal with the media – but, perhaps they’re all busy crafting email answers now.

Local residents rejected from pipeline hearing staff reporter

The National Energy Board has decided not to allow a group of Burnaby residents to participate in an upcoming hearing related to Kinder Morgan’s pipeline expansion. The group includes a dozen residents and a housing co-op with 88 units, all in Burnaby’s Forest Grove area, where the pipeline runs along the south of Burnaby Mountain. Glen Porter, a resident of the Pine Ridge Housing Co-op, said the National Energy Board decision was disappointing. “We certainly think our concerns are valid, and the National Energy Board has decided not to hear us, at least not at this stage,” Porter said. “But we’re not going away.” Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline runs oil from Alberta to Burnaby and can transport a maximum of 300,000 barrels of oil per day. The company wants to twin the pipeline, more than doubling its capacity, but needs National Energy Board approval first. But the upcoming hearing the residents wanted to join was not about the pipeline expansion or route of the twin line; it’s a commercial tolling application to seek approval from the board on what methodology the company can use to charge its customers. The National Energy Board allowed several oil and gas companies to have intervenor status in the hearing but excluded the Forest Grove residents, the Tsleil-Waututh Nation (the pipeline and Westridge Marine Terminal are in their traditional territory), and BROKE, another residents’ group that is opposed to the expansion. In a fivepage document online, the board outlined its reasons for rejecting the applicants. “As for the other intervention requests, the board is of the view that they have not sufficiently justified their interest in the issues to be tried in this case. The issues to be decided in this case relate only and exclusively to the commercial aspects of a potential future expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline system, that include the toll methodology, the terms and conditions for oil transportation service, the allocation of capacity on the system, the appropriateness of the open season

and specific filing requirement exemptions related to financial regulation.” According to Porter, the residents wanted to ensure that the tolling application fully accounted for the costs of compensation to area residents in the event of a pipeline leak or rupture. Kinder Morgan has already experienced an oil spill in 2007, when city-hired workers broke the pipeline, releasing 224,000 litres of oil in North Burnaby. Some local residents were compensated for damage to their property. In the event of a catastrophe, those costs could be

quite large, Porter said. “Our concern was to make sure the costs of insurance and so on were built into the tolls that the company would charge, and it seems like we are not able to make that point,” he added. Ecojustice, an environmental group of activist lawyers, was representing the residents. “We’re really disappointed,” said Karen Campbell, a lawyer with Ecojustice. “Kinder Morgan is saying they are doing public consultation ... and they really want a dialogue, but their lawyers sent two let-

are not unjustly discriminatory,” she said. Kinder Morgan has yet to apply for permission to expand the Trans Mountain pipeline system, but when the company does, the board will hold a public hearing. “Those who will be directly affected by this proposed expansion project will have the opportunity to participate in the public hearing. In addition, the board’s participant funding program will be available for the hearing, which will assist intervenors with their participation expenses,” she said.

Trading blackboards for board rooms Burnaby teacher has found success with a unique children’s product Christina Myers staff reporter

Elaine Tan Comeau is a school teacher through and through – the sort who says “my heart is in my classroom” and truly means it. But this month, as many of her Burnaby school district colleagues settle into a new school year, Comeau is taking business calls and making shipments – trading black boards for board rooms, at least temporarily. Comeau is the inventor of a children’s product called Easy Daysies – a magnetic, visual organizer that helps children keep track of their daily routine and responsibilities. Necessity is usually the mother of invention and Easy Daysies is no exception: the original product was created in her elementary classroom to help students with knowing what was coming next - creating stability and a sense of responsibility. When parents started noticing how well it worked, Comeau was happy to provide them with one for home. “It started in my classroom, but I had so many parents over the first eight years of my teaching career say ‘Wow, I need to make that at home,’” she said. “I love teaching and I love my kids – so I just made them for them. I was glad to see how well it worked for them.” All that time, Comeau made them for free for her students, never thinking of it as a “product” but simply as an extension of her classroom teaching. But as she continued to hear back praise from the parents, and seeing how well it worked with the students, the light bulb eventually went on. “I thought ‘well, maybe I should make this into something,’” she said. She carried out research to see if there were other products already filling that niche – there weren’t. But the academic research showed that children as young as preschool age benefit from visual reminders and constant routines that can be depended on. She then spent a few years creating prototypes based on the original she’d used in her classroom, until she got it just right. She saved up money for the business venture by selling crafts. Meanwhile, she was still a teacher by day and a busy mom by night – with three young children, including a newborn. The business effort took place after the kids were in bed, sometimes till 2 or 3 a.m. “It was literally off my kitchen table. I made my first batch and, word of mouth, it sold out in a month. My wonderful husband made me a website – he didn’t have experience at that – and we just went from there.” Soon, local stores were carrying the product – over time, the number continued to grow as stores across the country slowly picked up Easy Daysies for their shelves. Then, just over a year ago, they took

In the spotlight: It was all smiles for Dragon’s Den panel members Arlene Dickinson, right, and Kevin O’Leary, during the episode that featured Elaine Tan Comeau’s invention, Easy Daysies. Comeau is a Burnaby school teacher. Easy Daysies to the Canadian Toy Show. While there, other inventors told them about Dragon’s Den – a CBC show in which entrepreneurs present their ideas to a panel of venture capitalists, hoping to make a deal to help them grow their project. “Everyone said ‘you need to get bigger – go on Dragon’s Den.’” The couple flew home and decided to look into it, despite the fact that it films in Ontario. “My husband googled Dragon’s Den and then he looks at me and says, ‘They’re going to be here (in Vancouver) this Saturday for nationwide auditions.” It was a moment of serendipity that they couldn’t ignore. So they quickly created their pitch and, that weekend, showed up with Easy Daysies in hand. “We auditioned in front of producers – that was probably the most nerve-wracking moment of my life. They had six weeks of auditions ahead of them and they said they would only give a call back to those who were invited to the show … I knew which day it should be and we got the call that morning.” They were matched up with a producer, who helped them prepare and explained the process in full. “There was no guarantee we would be on the TV show. Even if we got a deal, if it was boring it wouldn’t necessarily air.” While the financial deal is valuable, the exposure that being on the popular show would bring was even more critical. “Every inventor wants that exposure,” she said.

A few weeks later, the whole family was in Toronto and – despite the time change, sleepy children, bouts of bronchitis and plenty of nerves – Comeau says the whole family “did so great.” “I will always remember my son, who’s four, going up those stairs and he looks at me and says ‘Mommy, I’m not scared of dragons!’” The children helped with the presentation and Comeau made her pitch. While some proposals on the show don’t garner even a single offer, Comeau ended up getting deal proposals from every investor on the panel, sparking a bidding war. “We were told we’d be in front of them for two minutes up to 45 minutes at most, In the end, we were in there for 48 minutes,” she said. She struck a deal with two investors – Jim Treliving and Kevin O’Leary. The business growth began within minutes of the episode airing, and has continued ever since. “When it aired last September, the producers told us to monitor our website traffic to see what happened – it started airing at 4 p.m. on the east coast, and right away we saw a spike in traffic. At one point, it was 12 hits per second and the orders were coming in province by province as it aired across the country. It was huge.” And the numbers don’t lie. The first year she sold Easy Daysies, gross sales were $12,000; their most recent quarter totalled $100,000 in sales. The product is in toy shops around the country and now at Chapters locations throughout Canada, on top of the direct sales from the website.

She’s also expanded the product line into other visual products aimed at helping children learn and be independent – like re-stickable images that show a child what kind of clothing is in a particular drawer. With success like that, Comeau knows the time is coming where she’ll have to decide whether to continue pursuing the business or return to her Burnaby classroom when her leave of absence ends. “I love teaching, I really, really do – I love to be in the classroom. That’s where my heart is. It’s hard to imagine not being there,” she said. “On the other hand, this is great too – and I’m with my kids. “Having my kids see that you can be creative and make a dream come true, and that it’s worth it to work hard at something – that’s so valuable to me, too.” And hearing feedback from other parents - many of them busy working parents themselves – is huge reward in itself. “When someone emails you to say ‘this has made our day so much better, our family loves it’ that’s wonderful,” she said. Though making Easy Daysies is not quite the same as standing in front of a classroom, at the end of the day she’s still pursuing the passion that started her on the road to becoming a teacher: helping children learn. The last few years for Comeau has proven that the old maxim – do you what you love and success will follow – is certainly true even in modern business. To check out Easy Daysies, and to see a clip of the Dragon’s Den episode on which Comeau appeared, see www.easydaysies. com.

Help for children

Parents interested in the provincial government’s supported child development program should

consider attending an information meeting next Thursday. The session will feature representatives from the Ministry of Children and Family Development and the Vancouver and Burnaby supported child development programs. The free program helps families with kids, up to 19 years old, who may need extra care because of a disability or disorder. It is paid for by the Ministry of Children and Family Development, but contracted out to local groups to deliver, and in Burnaby, the B.C. Centre For Ability runs the program. The information session is on Thursday, Nov. 8 at the Burnaby Association for Community Living, at 2702 Norland Ave., from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Email terri.calvert@bc-cfa.org to attend. Child care will be provided. The meeting is in response to a ministry review of the program started in November 2010. Burnaby mom Wendy Seet was an instrumental figure in pushing the ministry to review the program. She was advocating for daycare support for her young daughter with Down syndrome and complaining of long wait-lists.

Soldier: A ‘horror show’ of post-traumatic stress for returning veterans continued from page 5

in Kabul. “I was on my own for about 10 minutes. The Taliban, at the time, had a $25,000-bounty on any captured NATO solider, dead or alive. All the people in town knew that,” he said. At the suggestion of his psychology professor, Berry sought help for dis disorder.

“My psychological briefing when I got home was 300 of us in a base at Petawawa, with some psychologist … who said ‘Do any of you experience any of these symptoms?’ Do you think anybody put up their hands?” It would have been obvious to anyone looking from the outside that Berry, and many of his fellow soldiers, were deeply By the time he was diaginjured. “It was a horror show nosed with the disorder at night.

He was living in line, and he is essentially a constant, hyper-vigilant, crippled, he said. “I can’t work again. I’m paranoid state. Once, while out for not going to be able to walk with his mom in a hold a job in any of the Burnaby park, she reached fields I’ve been trained in. for a soccer ball left on the I’m not necessarily going field, and Berry reacted in to be able to have a family.

Sit on their a reoccurring nightmare $40,000 a year and drink about the night he was themselves to death? separated from his patrol Because that’s what a lot of

them are doing,” he said. Despite treatment, which has helped, and getting off drugs and alcohol, Berry still has regular nightmares, panic attacks, agoraphobia, intense paranoia and he lives with the constant expectation he will die an early and violent death. Yet he remains committed to seeing the New Veterans Charter thrown out. Berry and several other B.C. veterans plan to serve the government with a class action lawsuit alleging the New Veterans

Charter is a violation of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. By creating essentially two classes of veterans, Berry and his comrades will argue the government has violated Section 15 of the charter, which states that every individual is “equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination.” “The New Veterans Charter is an absolute abomination. It’s a betrayal of everything this country stands for, in my view,”

he said. “We had one system from 1919 to 2006 that served veterans from World War One, World War Two, Korea, Cypress, Bosnia and Afghanistan up until 2006. Why would you turn it on its head, gut it by up to 90 per cent and then tell anyone that’s challenging it that they’re over entitled?” Vancouver law firm Miller Thomson has taken on their case pro bono. Berry is also the local team leader for Canadian Veterans Advocacy, a group dedicated to raising awareness of veterans’

issues and lobbying the government for change. The one good thing to come from the suffering of Afghanistan’s veterans is that the disorder is “out of the closet” in the military, and the discussion is no longer hushed up. Berry is scheduled to give a talk about his experiences and his current fight Tuesday, Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Theresa Parish at 5146 Laurel St. His presentation will be followed by discussion and refreshments.

Perennial favourite impressive for coming year Ford Escape comes to 2013 with a makeover David Chao and Bob McHugh NOW contributors

The 2013 Ford Escape is a complete makeover that will impress even the most critical car enthusiasts. It is packed with features and drives significantly better than its predecessor, not to mention that it is more fuel efficient too. A unibody platform shared with a European Ford called “Kuga” underpins the new Escape. All three engine choices have four-cylinders, the V6 Escape is history. There’s also a host of technology upgrades to improve performance, safety, multi-media features and reduce its environmental impact. A 2.0 litre EcoBoost engine that offers more power plus 30 per cent better fuel economy replaces the 3.0 litre V6. Lighter and more compact, the turbocharged Ecoboost engine comes with direct fuel injection and twin independent variable camshaft timing. A smaller 1.6 litre Ecoboost

engine comes in the mid trim range SE version of the Escape and the base S trim comes with a conventional, tried and true 2.5 litre, which is a hold-over engine from the previous generation Escape. All engines are mated with a new 6-speed automatic transmission with both sport and manual addition modes of operation. New Escape also offers a uniquely different kind of hands-free technology. A kicking action by the key-fob holder, under the rear bumper, can open or close the power operated rear door. It`s a handy way to access the cargo area when you`re carrying something. The dooropening is triggered by motionsensing technology similar to that used in video games. Discarded plastic bottles are a major environmental pollution issue and Ford has found a way to use them in the manufacture of carpets inside the new Escape. This initiative alone is expected to recycle four million plastic bottles annually, according to Ford. In addition, all the sound dampening and seat cushion materials are also made from recycled materials.

Escape to paradise: The 2013 Ford Escape brings some impressive new features to the table, making it a likely hit for the coming year. Advanced tech features available include an active park assist system that can detect and then automatically steer the Escape into a parallel parking space.

There’s also a blind spot vehicle detection system that comes with cross-traffic alert, which is a valuable aid when reversing blindly out of a parking stall.

Escape: Makeover for Ford model continued from page 17

America and a hybrid engine version was also available. Ford has not yet announced a hybrid successor, which is a little disappointing.

Style

Quite a change from the straightforward twobox shape of the previous Escape. The new model is almost 10 per cent more aerodynamic and has an aggressive frontal appearance with shape angles, a steeply raked windshield and gaping lower grille openings. The Ecoboost engine versions also conceal an innovation behind the blacked-out lower grille. Sensor-controlled shutters regulate air entering the engine bay to improve its aero efficiency and achieve optimum fuel mileage. The new Escape’s body is lighter, yet 40 per cent more rigid than its predecessor. Dual exhaust pipes are standard, the large rear door is a wrapover design that allows a lower lift-in height, but the rear-end styling is an overly busy one to my eyes.

Inside

A wrap-around cockpit greets the driver and the centre stack of the dash houses a new layout MyFordTouch. I’ve had had issues with the sensitivity and function of MyFord Touch in the past, but this is arrangement is much better and looks somewhat similar to Nissan’s multi-media setup. Rear seat legroom is pretty good and climate control in the rear is also standard in all but the base S model. Cargo space is also excellent cargo with 97 litres (34.3 cu ft) behind the 60/40 split rear seat. It folds completely flat at the pull of a lever by the seat cushion and increases

cargo space to 193 litres (68.1 cu ft). The rake of the rear seatback is also adjustable.

Secure

Escape now comes with seven (instead of six) air bags. There’s an additional knee air bag to protect and position the driver better. The side air bags on the front seats also have a unique feature that allows them to adapt to the size of a seat occupant.

Drive

I drove an Escape with the 1.6 litre and another with the 2.0 litre engine. Most buyers will be completely satisfied with the smaller engine, unless they pack a lot of heavy stuff or people around on a regular basis, or tow a trailer. That said, the difference in fuel economy is not huge. Transmission operation is busier with the smaller engine, but the overall noise level is impressively quiet. In fact, cabin quietness is akin to the low level of hush that you’ll only find in far more expensive vehicles. Both of my Escapes also came with the all-wheeldrive system. Although it possesses some off-road capabilities this vehicle is more at home on a paved road. It’s where the Escape’s Torque Vectoring Control and Curve Control systems stand out. Basically these are active, more advanced and quicker acting forms of stability control and they even use the same module to monitor performance. The transmission’s anual mode is a thumb operated toggle switch on the side of the shift lever, instead of those sporty paddle shifters on the steering wheel. The toggle switch is surprisingly good and easy to operate, and better suits this type of vehicle. Apparently the allwheel-drive system can

SECTION COORDINATOR Tom Berridge, 604-444-3022 • tberridge@burnabynow.com

Slow and steady wins the race Tom Berridge sports editor

There is something about the moral from The Tortoise and the Hare fable that suits Megan Ellis. The 22-year-old outside hitter with the Portland State Vikings volleyball team has made the most of her opportunities with the NCAA Division I women’s program, and is now poised to graduate as one of its all-time greats. The Alpha Secondary School grad surpassed the 900-kill mark in her university career following her 14th double-double this season in a two-game sweep over Montana State last weekend. She has also bettered 700 kills earlier this month. It was Ellis’s all-around skills that initially caught the eye of Portland State’s new head coach Michael Seemann while on a scouting mission to the Lower Mainland. “What I saw was a player with good size and she stood out amongst the 100-odd players. ... She’s a big, strong athlete.” Being a big fish in a small pond served Ellis well in her high school years. She led the tiny Alpha program to a provincial high school AAA banner in 2006 and a bronze medal the year before. Ellis was also named MVP at the 2007 provincial club championships with the Coquitlam Ducks and got a first-team all-star nod at the nationals. But making the jump to NCAA’s Division I was a bigger leap for the Burnaby product. “It definitely was,” said Ellis on a long-distance call from Portland. “It’s just how competitive the sport is. There are 12 scholarships on the team and 15 (players) competing for six spots on the court.” Ellis red-shirted her first season with the Vikings before seeing limited action as a second-year freshman. As a sophomore, she was displaced on the depth charts by the transfer in of Whitney Phillips, who became a two-time Big Sky conference first team all-star at

Do it all: Burnaby’s Megan Ellis, in white, is putting up career numbers in the NCAA Division I for the Portland State University Vikings women’s volleyball program this season.

Portland State and MVP in 2010. “I think that year I was on the bench it helped me as an allaround player,” Ellis said. “It just made me work on the skills that are important and what I needed to put myself on the court. That’s what I’ve been working on.” After a successful junior year last season when she earned conference first-team honours, Ellis

had to again adjust her game with the transfer of junior Jaklyn Wheeler to the Vikings’ program this year. Together, the pair of outside hitters have become a potent onetwo punch in the conference for the league-leading 13-1 Vikings. “There is always that doubt – and it happened to me in my second and third years – when I

was thinking, ‘When am I going to earn my spot?’ It was almost everything I wanted. … But that came later,” said Ellis, who is a two-time all-academic student/ athlete with a triple major in business. For Portland State, the hiring of Seemann as head coach in 2006 Volleyball Page 31

SFU sinks Vikes in opening dual meet Simon Fraser University sunk host University of Victoria in the opening dual swim meet of the season. The Clan men won 11 of 15 events against the Vikings, while the SFU women’s team nearly tripled UVic 329-112 last Saturday. Nicole Cossey set a new dual meet mark of 26.41 in the 50-metre freestyle, bet-

tering the old 2003 record set by New Westminster’s Amber Dykes by more than one-tenth of a second. Cossey also won the 50m butterfly. Carman Nam won three events for the Clan, earning victories in the 200, 400 and 800m free. Freshman Brianna Bailey took first place in both the 100 and 200m breaststroke.

Alex Schofield, Courtney Triano, Katrina Sharpe and Mariya Chekanovych of Burnaby also earned wins at the meet. On the men’s side, Julian Monks led the Clan team with three victories. Monks won the 50m butterfly, while also taking top spot in the breaststroke. He set a new Clan dual meet record in the 200m

breast, winning in a time of 2:19.09, while bettering the long-standing 1993 mark set by Jason Meyer by five seconds. Dimitar Ivanov was another three-event winner, placing first in the 50 and 200m backstroke and 200m individual medley. Ivanov’s 200m back time brokeAndrewLennstrom’s 1995 record time by almost two seconds.

Travis Kam also won three races in his firstever collegiate meet. Kam placed first in the 50 and 100m free, while also setting a new school mark in the 100m back. Kam’s 57.41 time bettered the old record set by Kurt Ouchie in 1999. Other Clan winners included Adam Kautz and Swim Page 30

The Moscrop Panthers wrapped up first place with a straight set victory over Burnaby Mountain in district senior boys’ volleyball on Tuesday. The No. 7 provincially ranked Panthers coasted to a 25-8, 25-15, 25-19 win over Mountain to finish the Burnaby/New Westminster regular season schedule with an unblemished record. As the first-place finisher, Moscrop will host the boys’ district playoffs on Thursday. The banner final game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. The Panthers are also the hosts for the Lower Mainland zone provincial qualifying tournament that will take place the following week. With four final appearances in four senior tournaments this season, including the team’s second title of the season last week in Richmond, Moscrop is poised to make another run to the AAA provincial championships. With all-star libero Marcus Jung, setter Zach Or and Grade 11 power hitter J.J. Cross, Moscrop has been ranked as high as third overall in the provincial high school rankings this season. “We have a really good core of leadership. It’s not really a high school team, it’s just so different,” said Moscrop volunteer cocoach Kim Or. “It’s like a family. It’s the journey. We’re walking through this together.” But winning an elusive Lower Mainland title will take a solid effort from every player on the squad, Or added. “Last year, we overachieved. This year we have a target on our backs. There are no easy games.” The Grade 10 Moscrop girls will also play host to the district junior playvolleyball downs, which will take place on Wednesday next week at the westside school. “All of them want to five-peat,” said Or, who also coaches the junior girls’ team at Moscrop. “They want it, just like the boys.”

FIELD HOCKEY

Steelers win two

Three picked for South American hockey challenge Three local field hockey players will be joining the Canadian national men’s field hockey team at the Champions Challenge in Argentina later this month. It will be the first competition for junior team members Gabriel GarciaHo of Burnaby and New Westminster twin brothers Stephen and Matthew Bissett since they helped Canada qualify for the junior World Cup in Mexico last month. “It’s nice to have some of the under-21 athletes return to training with the senior squad,” senior national team member Scott Tupper said in an online press release. “They’ve brought some good energy and we look forward to the potential impact they will have for Canada at this tournament.” Canada will compete in Pool A against Korea, Malaysia and Poland. Pool B includes South Africa, Ireland, Japan and Canada’s Pan American

rival Argentina. All eight teams will play in a quarterfinal game with the first-place pool finishers taking on the lastplace team from the other groups. The second- and third-place teams play in a similar crossover. The winners will move on to the semi-finals, while the losers will play for placement. The tournament winner will automatically qualify for the next edition of the men’s Champions Trophy. Teams will also be competing for World Ranking points. “Champions Challenge is important for us as we continue to build on the professionalism of our program on and off the pitch, especially in our daily training environment,” said national team head coach Anthony Farry. The Canadian men have not fared well at earlier Champions Challenges, finishing in eighth place in 2009 and last year. – Tom Berridge

Big scores: The Northwest Giants put up big numbers in two runaway wins over the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds in major midget hockey last week.

Midget Giants still unbeaten The Northwest Giants had a chance to pad their stats following two big wins over the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds last weekend. The Giants, the only still unbeaten team in the B.C. major midget hockey league, dumped the T-Birds 9-2 in Chilliwack on Oct. 27, before returning home for a 10-1 triumph on the Sunday. Eric Margo led the Giants with two goals and two assists in Sunday’s win, lifting him into a tie with Jarid Lukosevicius and Jackson Cressey for the team lead with seven goals apiece. Colton Kerfoot also potted a pair of goals, while Jansen Harkins chipped in with four assists. Quinn Thompson also assisted on three counters. All but two players on the 18-man Giants’ bench picked up at least a point in the victory.

The win improved the Giants’ record to 9-0-1, just one point behind the firstplace Cariboo Cougars at 10-2-0. On the Saturday, Burnaby defenceman Connor Pasco picked up the first of his two goals this season against the Thunderbirds. Cole Todd had a pair of late goals for the winners, while Lukosevicius, Margo and Brandon Del Grosso of New Westminster all had a goal and one helper in the one-sided win. Lukosevicius and Harkins lead the Giants in scoring with 18 points apiece, tied for fifth overall in the league. This weekend, the Giants will play a weekend series against the Northeast Chiefs, beginning with a Saturday night matchup at Planet Ice in Coquitlam. The return game is at the Burnaby Winter Club on Sunday morning, beginning at 9:30 a.m.

Two wins by the Grandview Steelers put some distance between them and last place in Pacific International Junior Hockey League play last weekend. The Steelers defeated the Port Moody Panthers and Ridge Meadows Flames by an identical 6-3 score in back-to-back meetings last Saturday and Sunday. First star Spencer Meyer scored a goal to spark a three-goal third period in the win at home against the Flames. Matteo Belmonte added a goal and an assist, while Karl Schopf had a pair of helpers in the final period. Ryan Panichelli was named a second star in the win. In Port Moody, rookie Jackson Beavis scored twice in a four-goal middle frame and was named first star in the win. Belmonte and Panichelli, with a three-point outing, also scored in the pivotal second period. Second star Jordan Hall and Gordon CampbellFollows both garnered a pair of assists in the victory. The win moved Grandview to within a point of third-place North Delta in the Tom Shaw conference. Grandview will host North Delta at the Burnaby Winter Club on Sunday.

B.C. INTERCOLLEGIATE HOCKEY

Battle of the unbeaten Taylor Piller scored two goals and Christopher Hoe had four assists to lead the Simon Fraser University club hockey team to a 6-2 win over Trinity Western University last Saturday. Piller tallied the eventual game-winner, with his second goal of the game, on a power play midway through the second period. Hoe picked up two of his helpers in the third

quarter, when the Clan put the game away with three unanswered markers. Evan Kurylo recorded the win in goal with 19 saves. The win moved SFU into sole possession of second place with a 4-0-0 record. The victory sets up a Saturday showdown at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre between the league’s two unbeaten teams.

SFU will host the leagueleading Selkirk College at the Copeland centre at 7 p.m. Selkirk is off to a fast start this season with a record of 6-0 while averaging more than seven goals per game. Not surprisingly, Selkirk players dominate the scoring table with six players holding down the top six places in the standings.

Volleyball: A steadying influence continued from page 29

was a turning point in a program that had not tasted success since winning consecutive Mountain West conference titles in the 1980s. “It’s a job I’ve always kind of wanted. I had a plan coming in,” said Seemann. Part of that plan included Ellis. “She had to experience a lot of firsts, and one of those was that the whole team is depending on her, and she has handled it really, really well,” Seemann said. With Ellis’s steady influence and oncourt versatility, Portland State has an opportunity to go farther than any other team in the program’s history. “I think so,” said Seemann. “Obviously, we have to make it. But I think we have far more capability than ever before. We feel like we’re going to put ourselves in a pretty good position.” And that is the team goal, Ellis added.

“It is,” she said. “Our first goal is to win the conference. I would like another championship ring. It would be my third and most meaningful because it will be my last competitive volleyball game at this level and personally, competing with the best.” With Ellis anchoring one side of the court, Seemann is pretty confident that Portland State can meet those goals. “She’s a solid, solid kid. That’s the thing that sticks out,” said Seemann, remembering the breakout moment Ellis had as a junior. “The defining moment came in a game against Montana. We were down 14-8 and we went to her four or five times, and we ended up winning the game. She took some gutsy swings. We were like, OK, this kid figured it out and is ready to contribute. “This year, when we go to her, she delivers.”

Cancer June 21-July 22: Romance, adventure, creativity, beauty, pleasure, sports and games fill the weeks ahead. Not this week, but the next two, could bring an old flame. Judge whether this is worth taking up again. What were the original problems? Your energy and charisma ride high Sunday – but don’t start any important new relationships (old flames excluded) or projects before Nov. 26. Chase money, buy and sell Monday to Wednesday – but don’t buy big or expensive things. Travel, communications lure you late week (Thursday best). Be patient: answers can take a long time. Home, family Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Lie low, rest and think Sunday. Your energy and charisma bounce back Monday to Wednesday. You attract admiration and ride a wee winning streak these three days. (It would be stronger if this month were not so domestic and “ending-oriented.” Still, it’s probably enough to put you over the top – or rescue you. Obama’s a Leo.) Still, until Nov. 26, it’s not a good idea to begin anything significant, buy anything important, nor initiate a relationship. An old love affair or a favourite child might return – it’s good, but short. Chase money late week: but buy nothing important. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Start/buy/love nothing new before Nov. 26. Until then, you’re not seeing all elements of a situation or project. This leads to minor delays or mistakes with ongoing ventures, but proves deadly to new ones, if started during this interval. Do old or ongoing things only, especially in home and career zones. You might revisit an old haunt. Sunday’s useless but fun – enjoy! Retreat, lie low Monday to Wednesday. Re-examine all planned action: any flaws? Your energy and charisma surge upward late week. A career-money plum awaits your pluck! Buy NOTHING significant Saturday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent lies on depths, mysteries, lifestyle changes, sexual urges, large finances, partnership finances, and commitment. It’s an all-or-nothing time. New relationships (formed in the last year) either grow deeper, or break apart. Your subconscious rises to the surface, letting you understand or glimpse your motives, true desires, even your destiny. Start nothing new before Nov. 26. An old flame might “appear” in the ten days ahead; after that, a former lust object or financial or lifestyle idea might return. If good then, good again. Romance colours MondayWednesday. Taurus April 20-May 20: The general accent lies on relationships, opportunities and challenges, cooperation and disunity, allies and enemies. Relocation might appeal. However, do not start anything important, especially in these areas, before Nov. 26. Until then, a relationship from the past might re-appear and grow important, presenting you with a choice. Safest approach: don’t make any decisions before late November. Sunday’s for superficial things. Focus on home, security and property Monday to Wednesday (but don’t buy anything). Romance, creativity visit late week. Chores, Saturday: be safe. Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing new before Nov. 26. An opportunity (and/or relationship) from the past might re-appear in the days ahead, but by next week the things returning are chores. You might have to redo something at your place of employment, or fill in at a former position. Watch schedules and supplies: disruptions and delays are likely, so plan well ahead, and have a back-up arrangement. Buy nothing Sunday. (It would prove useless.) Travel, communicate Monday-Wednesday. Be home, attend to family, property, security late week. Romance, Saturday? (Better in evening, night.)

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: You might feel ambitious Sunday, but your efforts would be wasted – relax. Now to Nov. 26, do not launch any new enterprises, whether in business,practical or family affairs,or love. They would tend to run in circles and never “finish.” Old ventures, circumstances might re-appear in the next three weeks, especially in intellectual, learning, travel or governmental zones. If these are obligations, handle them. If opportunities, examine once, then grab ‘em. A former money opening might return next week or the next. Social delights arrive Monday-Tuesday. Retreat, contemplate late week. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy, charisma and pizzazz ride a wave of joy to late month – enjoy it! But don’t start new projects of any kind, especially in financial, sexual and social spheres. Stick to the on-going, or reprise past, abandoned projects – these can succeed. Your heightened magnetism might attract someone from your past, particularly next week. Watch for mistakes, check your bank account, repeat instructions or phone numbers. You’re ambitious Monday-Wednesday: but remember, nothing new. Social joys, popularity, light romance and delicious optimism visit you late week. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Lie low, rest and contemplate. Your energy reserves are low. Take care of your “nest” (and nest egg). DON’T start new projects or relationships before Nov. 26. Past contacts and ongoing obligations/work roles are best. A former relationship could appear – good, all things being equal, before Nov. 14; not so good for love, good for therapy and confessions Nov. 14 onward. Someone could make your heart rise happily late week. Research or rest Sunday. Your intellect awakens Monday to Wednesday. Ambitions, authorities figure prominently Thursday/Friday: behave!

Nov. 4 - 10, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Wishes can come true over the next three weeks – old wishes. At least one or two joys from the past will appear – a former light, fun romance, a past group of friends, a formerly planned then abandoned social, convention or political event, a former bright plan. You’re happy! But DO NOT start new projects or relationships, especially in these zones before Nov. 26. Relax, worship Sunday. Mysteries, financial and sexual urges appear MondayWednesday. DO NOT commit. Travel, intellectual and legal areas are highlighted late week. Saturday’s ambitious: night time’s best. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your career, ambitions, status and reputation are highlighted this month. (You seldom care about reputation because you’re usually innocent of bad motives.) A former career role might return. In all areas, avoid starting new projects, plans or relationships before Nov. 26. Instead, stick with ongoing situations, and protect these from mistakes, misunderstandings, missed meetings or supply shortages. A former friend might return briefly, to point the way. Exciting meetings, relationships fill early week (not Sunday). Mysteries and sexual, financial urges visit late week. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your dreams, plans and intellect turn backward into the land of revision this week to Nov. 26 – start nothing important before that date. Instead, address missing factors, read and research, and stick with ongoing projects and relationships – or reprise past situations and links. Sunday’s sweet, romantic, pleasurable, but with little result. Tackle routine chores Monday to Wednesday. Your relationships, good and difficult, fill Thursday/Friday (Thursday better). An investmentproperty deal, or sexy-security attraction, lights up mid-to-late week. timstephens@shaw.ca
