We are erasing the line between print and digital media through the use of augmented reality. It’s easy for you to join the experience. All it takes is Layar, an app you can download for free to make the Burnaby NOW come to life. While Layar has been used by hundreds of magazines in Europe, Lower Mainland Publishing – our parent company -- is the first media chain in the world to use the app across all its publications. “Our plan is to increase engagement between our newspapers and our readers, increase the time they spend with us, im-

prove the utility of the product, and seamlessly integrate our customers’digital assets into our newspapers,” said Alvin Brouwer, president of Lower Mainland Publishing, a division of Glacier Media. “It adds many different dimensions to a print advertising campaign or to the stories and photos that appear in our papers.” Layar uses your iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone or tablet to recognize images in the Burnaby NOW that have been enabled for augmented reality. It translates these images into buttons and notifications on your device’s screen, allowing you to instantly view related videos, share articles on social networks, click on websites mentioned in stories and much, much more. The app takes you beyond the paper’s pages. It’s easy to use. Start the app, point your phone’s cam-

Layar is extremely versatile. If you can imagine it, Layar can do it. “The technology’s finally here to bring print to life, and more and more advertisers have digital content that can be Layared,” said Brouwer. Layar uses the natural components of your newspaper. Newspaper pages, photographs, advertisements and other images can all utilize the Layar image recognition platform to allow the augmented reality components to appear instantly on readers’ smartphones or tablets. This makes it cleaner for designers and easier for consumers to use.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Grateful for helping hands O

n Dec. 5, 2008, at 6:59 p.m. Megan Thomson was born at Royal Columbian Hospital. She weighed six pounds, and three ounces, but there was something slightly off, something very tiny that would have an immeasurable impact on her future. The clues were there: Megan was as floppy as a rag doll, and she had a weak cry. “We thought from the trauma of the birth, she’s probably just tired,” says Megan’s mom Cindy, who lives with her husband in ON MY BEAT Burnaby’s Cariboo Heights neighbourJennifer Moreau hood. Then came the diagnosis: Megan had Prader-Willi syndrome, a congenital disease with no known cure, affecting only one in 15,000 people. The disease is caused by missing active genetic material from the paternal side for one particular chromosome. “It was completely new to us,” Cindy says. “I had heard of it before, but I didn’t really know what it was. My husband did a lot of research on the Internet. I couldn’t handle it.” The first phase of the syndrome is often characterized by low muscle tone, a weak cry and problems breastfeeding. The disease affects the hypothalamus, a small area at the base of the brain responsible for regulating fluids, puberty, emo-

All in the family: Four-year-old Megan Thomson, seen here with her mom Cindy, was born with Prader-Willi syndrome, which affects her development. Megan’s story will be featured on Variety’s Show of Hearts Telethon on Feb. 16 and 17. tions, pain and appetite. No one really knows why or how the genetic problem affects the hypothalamus, but PraderWilli syndrome also causes cognitive disabilities, delayed motor development, stunted growth, small hands and feet, underdeveloped muscles and an insatiable appetite, which can lead to morbid obesity. Megan developed her appetite around age two, and she always feels hungry, no matter how much she eats. “My husband and I were using a knotted tea towel around the fridge to

lock it up at night, and just last week she’s figured out how to open it and get in there. We wake up in the morning, and she’s proud of herself, she ate four or five yogurts,” Cindy says. “That was not good. We’ll have to get a lock for the fridge.” Kids with Prader-Willi syndrome are often on calorie-restricted diets for life, Cindy explains. There are even problems with Megan eating non-edible things, and Cindy has to watch her daughter in grocery stores. There are also the behavioural prob-

lems. “Meltdowns are bigger than what you see for the typical four-year-olds, and they tend to last a bit longer,” Cindy says. Self-harm is also an issue, and Megan was ripping out her curly hair for a while. Since delayed motor skills are the norm with Prader-Willi, Megan didn’t start walking till she was three, and that’s where Variety-The Children’s Charity came in. The family’s social worker suggested Variety Page 4

Residents warned about aggressive coyote Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Conservation officer David Cox wants to warn local residents of a particularly aggressive coyote in the Burnaby Heights neighbourhood. On Jan. 25, conservation officers received a report involving a woman in the Oxford Street area, just off north Boundary Road. “She was leaving her residence and had her dog on a leash,” said David Cox, the conservation officer for the area. “And just as she was coming off the front of her property, a coyote attacked her dog on a leash.” 6

The dog was Bailey, a blind Jack Russell terrier, and according to the dog’s owner, Carmela Gargiulo, it was her daughter who was taking Bailey for a walk, when the coyote attacked. “She screamed, and I guess that scared the coyote off, and then she had to deal with the injuries to my dog,” Gargiulo said. The daughter took Bailey to the pet hospital, but the dog was in shock and had to be put down because of the injuries. “It was a horrible way to go for him,” she said. “I miss my dog, and I’m angry that these animals are allowed to roam freely about.”

Officers combed the area Sunday and Monday, looking for more coyotes but haven’t found anything. Cox would like the public to call conservation officers with any coyote sightings in the Heights area. The number is 1-877-952-7277. Since the Jan. 25 attack raises concerns for public safety, the coyote in question would have to be put down if officers were to catch it, Cox said. “Hopefully, it’s a one-off situation,” he said. In the meantime, Cox advised residents to keep wildlife attractants under wraps, as garbage and compost can lure rats and coyotes.

Every year, Variety broadcasts the Show of Hearts telethon to raise money for children in B.C. Last year, the organization raised nearly $7 million, with more than 1.5 million viewers tuning in. This year’s show features footage of big name performers – Rihanna, Michael Buble, Paul McCartney, and Justin Bieber, for example – and segments with families, like Megan’s, who have been helped by Variety. “Variety is a great cause, I know for me, putting our name out there, we’ll help out,” Cindy says. “Variety is helping so many families, you see the difference it was making.” To see Megan’s story, tune into Global on Feb. 16 and 17.

they contact Variety, which raises millions each year to help British Columbian children with disabilities. Cindy contacted Variety, and the organization agreed to supply Megan with a walker. “The walker was amazing,” Cindy says. “She would have eventually (started walking), but that sped it up big time.” Cindy has multiple sclerosis and uses a wheelchair to get around, so Megan doesn’t see her mom walking and can hitch a ride on the chair if she’s tired. The walker helped Megan balance better, so she can go outside and follow the other kids out exploring. “Before, she’d bum scoot, basically, so she wore out a lot of pants,” Cindy says. Variety provided the walker, which normally would cost about $2,300, on the condition that the family donates it to charity once Megan outgrows it. “In our family, we couldn’t afford a

New Democrat MLA Kathy Corrigan is running for a second term in the Burnaby-Deer Lake riding. “I have enjoyed working on behalf of my constituents for the last four years and look forward to earning their votes in the election this spring,” Corrigan said in a press release. In 2009, Corrigan won the Deer Lake

seat from Liberal MLA John Nuraney, following public opposition to the government’s plan to build a remand centre in the area. Corrigan is the NDP’s opposition critic for public safety and a former Burnaby school board chair. Liberal Richard Lee will run again for his riding in Burnaby North against NDP candidate Janet Routledge. Lee is the only Burnaby candidate the Liberals have announced so far. Jane Shin is running for the NDP in Harry Bloy’s Burnaby-Lougheed riding, and New Democrat Raj Chouhan will run again in Burnaby-Edmonds. The next provincial election is scheduled for May 14.

HOARDING

Bill is last option Stefania Seccia staff reporter

A Burnaby resident whose house is in an “unsightly state,” is facing a potential $20,000 to $25,000 bill from the city’s clean-up crew. On Jan. 29, staff took photos of a 6900-block Mandy Ave. home that has had several complaints since Feb. 2000 for having materials, goods and personal items placed on the yard and around the house. “It’s regrettable,” Mayor Derek Corrigan said at the Feb. 4 council meeting. “It’s the only option left.” Council approved the staff’s recommendation to allow city workers to enter the property and remove the materials, at the cost of the owner. A senior male who lives alone occupies the house, and was spoken to by staff with the aid of a social worker while the man was in hospital, “to explain the

necessity of a cleanup of the property,” the report states. “Staff have also remained in contact with neighbours who are concerned both for the health of the property owner, and with the ongoing state of the property.” The property is in violation of the Unsightly Premises Bylaw, with the volume of debris surrounding the house and overgrowth. The property has been in the news before, when Burnaby RCMP officers, along with firefighters and emergency services personnel responded to a call when the 73-yearold owner was stuck in his home due to it being stuffed to the ceiling with hoarded items. If the expense to clean the property goes unpaid by the end of the year, it will be added to and form part of the property’s taxes in arrears. editorial@ burnabynow.com View with

ome people might mistakenly think I’m easy to impress. I still can’t believe 40-ton jumbo jets float through clouds, Jell-O doesn’t melt, dogs can learn how to dance, and phones don’t even need cords anymore. I’m of that certain age where I can still remember when the first man stepped on the moon and everyone in the neighbourhood sat glued to their flickering TV sets. Sets that were mostly tiny black-and-white ones with rabbit ear antennas, with the exceptional colour TV in a big walnut cabinet owned by the “rich” family on the block. I remember when mom got an electric frying pan and we were astounded; when dad got a car with air conditioning and we drove to Saskatchewan just so we could try it out. Well, also to visit all the relatives. But I still think a good part of the reason was to try out the cool air. I think I spend at least 25 per cent of each day saying things like, “How do they do that?” and, “I don’t understand.” As a journalist I’ve had my

share of technological change. I started with hot lead type, went to paste up (a system that involved hot wax – not the bikini kind) and now, direct-to-press technology – and, of course, I grapple everyday with the evergaping maw of the Internet. It’s been a bit like starting a journey strolling la-de-da through Stanley Park smelling the roses, then hanging on the mane of a plodding donkey through the Tibetan mountains, and then straddling an atomic rocket à la Dr. Strangelove. At every step I’ve been astounded by new inventions – inventions that made telling stories faster and easier with wider and wider audiences. As wide as the worldwide web, and as fast, it seems, as the speed of light. I tweet, and somebody from Dubai retweets me, and somebody from Australia replies – all in seconds. I take a photo, hit a button and, like the steam from my morning coffee, it seems to become part of the atmosphere – no wonder they call it iCloud. It is, simply, magic. And now there’s “augmented reality” via Layar. I’m not sure if the name really captures what it does, or even, what it is. But, when I first saw it in action, it sent me back to the time when I was that kid

togetherness. Family is people to whom we’re connected and who, in return, are connected to us. But we’d argue it goes deeper than that: at its core, the people we consider family – be they siblings, or friends, or teammates, or the person sitting on the pew next to us at church – are people for whom we feel some sense of responsibility. Or maybe the right word is obligation. Commitment. Duty. In an era where individual fulfillment reigns above all else, where “self” has become the priority, these words

all sound vaguely threatening or, at the least, tedious and boring. Yet it is this ability to put oneself second to another human being, or to a cause, or to a group that allows us to be part of that family – to work as an individual for the greater good of many. So where do your responsibilities lie? To the family you share a home with? The family you share a country with? The family you share the globe with? And, most importantly, what will that responsibility spur you to do this year?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Where’s health-care priority?

Dear Editor:

There is nothing like an unexpected stay in hospital to refresh the memory about life’s priorities, number one being health. My own recent two-night stay at Burnaby Hospital also reminded me how grateful I should be – and am – for the skill and compassion of our doctors, nurses, and support staff. Thank you, Burnaby Hospital for the excellent care I received. Your people work wonders every day in very challenging circumstances. As my need for treatment was partly due to having neglected my own health, so it seems to be at

Burnaby Hospital. My stay showed me firsthand how neglect has created a need for emergency treatment there as well. The wear and tear of time, chronic , and the rising tide of population over the past three decades have resulted in an overcrowded facility well past its best before date. I waited six hours for a bed in emergency and spent the second night in a broken bed in the hall of a ward. Not exactly the best in health care for the best place on earth. Yes, plans are underway to build a new hospital. In fact, a redevelopment plan had been drafted as far back as 2001.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Get priorities straight continued from page 6

But other priorities received funding : the Olympic Games, the Canada Line, the refurbishment of B.C. Place – ambitious, possibly even laudable projects, but hardly priorities compared to a hospital known to be in failing health. God forbid any of the funding powers that be should need treatment at any facility for any reason. But spending a couple of nights in Burnaby Hospital might prove to be instructive. The experience could serve to remind them of their responsibilities to put their constituents’ priorities first when they make major funding decisions. Patrick Cotter, by email

Let’s talk about policing Dear Editor:

With the recommendations from the recently completed Pickton inquiry, there has been some discussion of regionalizing our police force. I fully support these discussions, as a resident, and a former local politician. I once looked out a window to see my van being stolen in Port Moody, 30 seconds from the Coquitlam border by at least two routes. I was able to call in the theft immediately and, fortunately, Port Moody Police did find my van within minutes – in Coquitlam. When I asked them how the inter-force communication works, with a moving crime happening so close to the municipal boundary, they told me that

Coquitlam wouldn’t even be alerted about such an event. While a car theft is not a “serious” crime, I fail to believe that not informing police in the vicinity makes sense. I also wonder how open the communication channel even is – I know when calling 911 that not only do I need to state the kind of emergency, but also the municipality, so I can be put through to the right dispatch. These delays would be very stressful in an urgent situation. What happens if you are near a municipal boundary and don’t even know what city you are in? And if you’re near the many municipal boundaries in our region, are the closest officers being alerted, or just the ones within that municipality? I heard an officer with IHIT, the fairly recent and optional regional integrated homicide unit, interviewed on radio this past week, and he sidestepped the question of whether things would be better if all the cities were forced to participate in IHIT. All he would do was point to the increased cooperation he’d seen between forces in recent years, since the heinous crimes of Pickton. “Better” cooperation may not be good enough in our modern society. Let’s have the debate. And let’s not let it be clouded by loud voices which may be motivated by workforce seniority, municipal “turfs,” or the number of upper positions that might exist in a unified force. Let’s have our discussion be transparent and focused on public safety. Cynthia van Ginkel, Burnaby

Layar: New ways to share stories continued from page 6

watching the moon landing. “How do they do that?” I again asked recently, when I scanned the “layared” magazine cover and it came to life. It’s like facial recognition software, they said. And I felt like I was being propelled into the future, a future I am seldom prepared for, but always enthralled by. Layar’s technology surely offers another amazing window for storytelling and sharing information – and, yes, entertainment. It does indeed bridge the printed page with digital media. (As an aside, if you haven’t already, check out our layered video of publisher Brad Alden on our front page today.)

There’s no question, I’m smitten with layar. It is my new best app – and it joins its other companions in a coveted spot on my iPhone. But, as with all technology, it’s only as good as the human beings who use it – or, perhaps, more accurately – only as good as how well the human beings can figure out how to use it. Journalists work with tools – some have been clumsy and archaic, others new, sleek and dynamic. But good journalists share great stories with whatever tools they are given. Stories that connect people, that inspire them, that reveal our common struggles, our successes – that which makes us so vastly interesting to each other. How we use Layar to expand our storytelling

and reporting will depend on how well we listen to our readers, how many folks trust us to share their stories, and how well we ply our craft. It is an amazing tool, but its true value will only be revealed by how we can best tailor it to serve our local readers and advertisers. As with all new technology, what we know we can do with it on day one will likely be quite different than day three or two months from now. It is like all first steps – sometimes you just can’t anticipate where it will lead – to the moon, or a walk around the block. But you just have to take that first step to find out. ◆ Pat Tracy is the editor of the Burnaby NOW newspaper. Follow her on Twitter, @PatTracy.

911

System defended

E-Comm service level under fire, but vice-president says the concerns are not valid Stefania Seccia staff reporter

Despite Operations Communication Centre (OCC) staff appearing at a recent council meeting to raise concerns about E-Comm’s performance level at taking emergency calls, the vice president denies any flaws with E-Comm’s system. At the Feb. 4 council meeting, council passed a motion that will see a move of its 911 police dispatch service to E-Comm. Almost one third of Burnaby’s OCC call takers and dispatchers attended in hopes of stopping the transfer, but were unsuccessful. However, Doug Watson, E-Comm’s vice-president, says the concern over the not-for-profit’s service is not valid. “We have a stringent, rigorous standard,” Watson said in an interview with the Burnaby NOW. “In 2012 we met the target and exceeded it.” Watson said he is pleased that Burnaby saw the value in working with E-Comm and that the residents of the city can expect a high level of service. E-Comm receives approximately 2,500 calls a day and is expected to answer at least 95 per cent in less than five seconds, according to contracts with its several municipalities. According to Watson, about 98 per cent are answered in that time. One concern raised by the OCC staff who turned up to the council meeting was an issue with red lighting, which is when calls are waiting to be answered. Watson says it happens when there is a sudden higher volume of phone calls than normal, and they have a system in place to deal with it. “We re-direct staff,” he explained. “We re-direct operators who take on more calls.” There are currently 250 staffed at EComm, which could rise by another 32 as job offers are being worked out for the

current OCC communication operators in Burnaby. “The level of service we provide and measure against … is a testament to the service we provide to the citizens we serve,” Watson noted as a key component about E-Comm. City staff recommended the move, and to cut cost from the budget–as it will save $100,000 annually–after a year of extensive review of E-Comm’s service model. “More and more municipalities examined the service model on their own and came to their own conclusions,” said Burnaby’s city deputy manager Lambert Chu. “We’ve gone through the evaluation, tests and [E-Comm’s] proven their abilities to handle emergency calls. We have come to that conclusion on our own.” Chu noted E-Comm exceeded it’s 95 per cent target to answer emergency calls quickly and that all emergency calls already go through E-Comm, which then sends the calls out to Burnaby’s OCC. “E-Comm is not new to Burnaby; it was established 20 years ago,” Chu said. “Burnaby looked into the model, the dispatch services at that time, but EComm was going through a steep learning curve.” About one year ago, E-Comm reexpressed an interest in providing its services to Burnaby. Staff, along with members of the RCMP, CUPE 23 and city staffers, launched an investigation–including visits to E-Comm, according to Chu. Chief superintendent Dave Critchley, officer in charge of the Burnaby RCMP detachment, said city staff put the project forward as a cost-savings measure. He noted all the research was done by the city and is the city’s decision, and whatever the city decides, his office supports. There are 30 police and fire departments subscribing to the E-Comm dispatch service, which was established in the late 1990s as the emergency communication centre for southwest B.C.

For more than 100 years, Scout Leaders have brought a world of adventure, Scouts have fun adventures discovering outdoor experience and friendship to 17 million Canadian youth. It starts with new things and experiences they wouldn’t discover elsewhere. Scouts is the start of Scouts. something great.

Volunteer & Leadership from the Heart: Scouts Canada by Kelina Kwan

Volunteers are the heart of organizations.They not only provide manpower, but also the passion in helping to provide services to communities. One of the largest volunteer-run organizations is Scouts Canada.They have 27,000 volunteers nation-wide, over 12,000 in the Pacific Coast Council and two to three hundred volunteers in Burnaby alone. In fact, Scouts Canada is the country’s leading co-ed youth organization offering programs for boys, girls, and young adults aged 5-26. For more than 100 years, Scouts Canada has brought a world of adventure, outdoor experience and friendship to 17 million Canadian youth. Scouts Canada offers challenging programs for youth that support healthy, active living, leadership and the environment. They offer five programs including: Beaver Scouts - 5 to 7; Cub Scouts - 8 to 10; Scouts - 11 to 13; Venturer Scouts -14 to 17; and Rover Scouts -18 -26. Behind all the programs

and activities are caring and dedicated volunteer leaders who help to shape tomorrow’s leaders and encourage youth to be more engaged in their community to make it a better place. Recently, I spoke with three leaders from Scouts Canada - Viki Fanous, Area Support Manager; Verna Adamson, Burnaby Area Commissioner; and Melissa Nemeth,Youth Spokesperson for Scouts Canada, Pacific Coast Council. Nemeth is also a Beaver Leader with the 6th Burnaby Centre Lake Scout Group. It transpires that a lot of volunteers began as participants in Scouts Canada’s programs,“and then they want to give back to the community because they received so much as participants”said Fanous.“A lot of our volunteers are parents of children who are participants, who want to spend more time with their children and do some quality outdoor activities with their children.”Adamson said that she herself became involved because her children were participants.

“Now they are grown up and gone, and not in scouting, but I am still here and having so much fun! I want to contribute to my community, and seeing the faces of children and their smiles as they learn something through play, and they get that ‘Aha!’ moment - it’s just totally amazing.They also give back to me because of the joy they bring, knowing that I am helping to build them into confident young people. I feel that I am making a big contribution to young people’s life and it’s definitely worth my time.” And that’s the feeling Nemeth has too. “I am essentially playing with kids and I am teaching them things. Last week, we made paper airplanes and we played games trying to figure out which way it works best. I get a lot of fun hanging out with them. But we are really helping to shape tomorrow’s leaders.”Through Scouts Canada’s programs, children are developing into confident, capable young people.“That’s the real impact our volunteers are having - encouraging kids to be more engaged and more involved in their own community, developing a

sense of belonging, and getting in touch with their community both local and even globally.”And that’s what’s in the hearts of all the volunteers. All Scouts Canada’s programs are designed to be age-appropriate. They teach children about leadership, environment, active living, physical health, nutrition, community service, and provide exciting adventures and more.“When they go to these weekly meetings, they are playing games, they are doing crafts, they are roleplaying, and they are going out to the community on tours, hikes and camps. They don’t realize it but they are learning through the activities”Fanous said. Scouts Canada always needs volunteers.You don’t need to be a scout to volunteer. However, you do need to go through a screening process that includes a clean police record check, an interview, and reference check.You will also be given 16 to 20 hours of training, some of which will be program-specific. There are opportunities for everyone both short and long-term – you can

work with younger kids, or older youth who are involved in different projects, including international projects.There are 18 different groups in the Burnaby area alone and they have a lot of programs ramping up at the moment including the Cub Car Rally and snow camping in Manning Park.“It’s a survival camp and kids come out of the other end incredible proud of what they have accomplished”Adamson said. And that’s what you feel from the heart when you volunteer. For more information about our programs or how you can make a difference in the lives of children in your community, please visit www.scouts.ca. Or call Viki Fanous at 604.220.8381 or Verna Adamson at 604.294.5550. For more information on how to get involved in your community, please contact Volunteer Burnaby through their website at www.volunteerburnaby.ca. View with

MEET MATTHEW COYNE, TOURISM DIRECTOR AND UNDEFEATED AMATEUR BOXER

Tourism leader has a wicked uppercut

H

e’s one of the most visible people in Burnaby, and Matthew Coyne couldn’t be busier at this time of year when local hotels are bustling and Tourism Burnaby is planning for 2013. Coyne, the executive director of Tourism Burnaby, recently organized Tourism Burnaby’s annual appreciation event at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts and Burnaby NOW reporter Alfie Lau caught up with Coyne to ask him some tough and CONVERSATIONS not-so-tough quesAlfie Lau tions. Here are the revealing answers. Introduce yourself – who you are, your title, how long you’ve been doing the job? Matthew Coyne, executive director Tourism Burnaby, for the past seven years. Where has the time gone! First of all, perhaps I’ll start with a quick introduction to Tourism Burnaby as some may not be aware of the organization. We are a non-profit destination marketing organization that promotes the growth of tourism in the City of Burnaby. Our priority markets include sport tourism, or sport event hosting, meetings and conferences, arts and culture and consumer marketing. We are an extremely lean marketing organization, and I am joined by my two colleagues, Ian Wish and Kelsey Downey. Best part of your job? This may sound very cliché, but it’s the people. From my colleagues to my industry stakeholders and partners, the tourism industry is filled with dynamic personalities that all really enjoy what they do, and it’s a real pleasure to work in that environment. If it’s not the people, then I would say the best part of my job is knowing that my colleagues and I contribute to Burnaby’s tourism industry and help generate positive economic activity in the City of Burnaby. Worst part? We’re in the business of destination marketing, we’re in the business of fun really, so can there really be a worst part? However, like all jobs, there are some clerical or administrative duties that I could do without. But that’s miniscule compared to all the positives. Like many small organizations, we find ourselves stretched at times, but the worst part, really is the risk of falling short of our expectations and not generating enough demand and opportunity for our tourism stakeholders. This is a competitive export industry and not only are we competing with other destinations, but we are also impacted by external factors like currency exchange, transportation costs and other access issues, so we are never compelled to be complacent at all. We’re always striving to improve and ensure we deliver results for our partners and stakeholders. Most interesting thing to happen to you on

the job? Most interesting, most enjoyable – that’s a vague question, but I would say the opportunity to meet new people, work with community organizations and the chance to travel across Canada namely. This past spring, I had the pleasure of travelling with the president of the Burnaby Minor Hockey Association to attend the 2012 Esso Cup in Charlottetown, P.E.I. in preparation for Burnaby hosting the event in 2013. I had never been to P.E.I. before, so that was quite an experience – a terrific part of our country. Activities/interests outside of the job? I like to try and lead a healthy lifestyle and try to find time to work out and participate in a variety of activities, including basketball and cycling. I also try to get up the hill to snowboard a few times during the winter. But for those that know me well, they would say that I can most often be found trying to pretend to be handy, working on my house and walking my dog with my wife. Apart from that, good food and wine are always of interest! Here come some of the crazier questions. If you’re stuck on a desert island, what three items do you take and why? Not that I would want them stranded too, but I assume I can’t take my wife and dog? OK, seriously, if I were stranded, I would have to go practical for the most part, with perhaps a little pleasure too. Flint and a Swiss Army knife for obvious reasons and the pleasure – a bottle of Laphroaig or Talisker Single Malt. At least I’ll have a bottle for a message. Favourite place in Burnaby that isn’t work-related? This is a tough question considering really, all of Burnaby’s great characteristics and assets I consider as part of my job. So having said that, I would choose Deer Lake Park. This is a real gem in the city. Not only do you have one of the most beautiful settings in Metro Vancouver, but you also have other great assets like the Hart House Restaurant, Burnaby Village Museum, Shadbolt Centre for the Arts and the Burnaby Art Gallery. Most interesting thing about you that your friends might not even know? Most interesting … that’s a stretch. Really … the only thing that comes to mind right now is that I have an amateur boxing record of 1-0. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? My wife, Ivana, introduced me to Croatia and the Adriatic, and I’ve had the pleasure of travelling there several times now. There are two islands: Hvar and Korcula that really are spectacular places to experience. The food is wonderful and not only can you enjoy rich history with some modern amenities that exist now, but you can also find areas that are seemingly

And if it’s not Croatia, then it has to be Italy’s Amalfi Coast. But, these are all places that I’ve been, so high on my list where I haven’t been is Turkey or South Africa. As much as technology is shrinking the world, it still is a vast, vast place and there are so many places worth exploring. Coming back to normal questions, what do you see yourself doing in a year, five years, 10 years (both on job and/or personally?) Honestly, that I can’t say. Hopefully not still renovating my house, but the way it’s going, I could very well be doing that in five years. Then in 10, it will probably be time to start all over again. Mentor/someone you look up to? Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work for and be associated

with a number of great leaders within the tourism industry and business community at large whom I would consider mentors. More importantly, I try to take advantage of any given opportunity to learn from others, and more often than not, these people aren’t even aware that they have had a real impact on my life. But, if you are looking for names, people like Rick Antonson, Ed Jaskula, Linda Griffiths and Paul Vallee come to mind quickly, my parents are an obvious choice too, but one person that does stand out only because our paths crossed at a time when I was at a fork in the road in my young adult life and really appreciated the leadership and guidance offered to me at the time was a basketball coach of mine in Northern Ireland, Eamon Brennan.

Family Day fun for all ON MY BEAT

I

Christina Myers

t’s been a long time coming but this Monday, Feb. 11, the province of B.C. will follow in the footsteps of several of its provincial cousins in celebrating a Family Day holiday. For those who will have the day off, it may be tempting – what with all this rain and grey weather – to hole up indoors with a big bowl of popcorn and some movies on the TV. And that’s a valid use of some extra time off, in my opinion. But for those who’d like to get out and enjoy some new activities, we’ve put together this roundup of Family Day events happening in the New Westminster and Burnaby area. So choose one (or a few) and get out into the community.

Ice time

There’s a special Family Day Skate at Kensington Recreation Complex. Lace up and get out on the ice with a special skate for Family Day. Event runs noon to 3 p.m., at Kensington (6159 Curtis St.) for youth and children 17 and under, and all children must be accompanied on the ice by an adult (the ration of children to adults must not be greater than three to one.) Regular admission and rental rates apply. For more information, call 604-297-4535.

River explorers

Explore nature with a unique event at Fraser River Discovery Centre, held in partnership with the City of New Westminster, the school district and River Market. Event runs 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a variety of activities, including: Mike’s Critters (live animals including parrots, frogs, lizards, snakes, turtles and more); ExploreGreen (an environmental educational arts and crafts program); a youth lounge for ages 11plus with video games and table top games; programs and artifacts from the New

Westminster Museum and Archives; guided tours of the Samson V; outdoor sports on the boardwalk, weather permitting; entertainment including a magician show and CoCo the Clown. There will also be children’s meal specials at River Market food vendors. The first 50 families to arrive will receive gift certificates for local services and products. Free parking available at Front Street parkade. The centre is at 788 Quayside Dr.

Time machine

Take a page from the past with a trip into history. The Burnaby Village Museum is celebrating Family Day with a special program aimed at families with young children, including a visit by a balloon artist, children’s art activities and heritage games, along with unlimited carousel rides. Drop-ins are welcome if there is space, but organizers encourage those interested in taking part to pre-register. Call 604297-4565 (program code 285348). Cost is $6.50 plus tax per person, and event runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The village is at 6501 Deer Lake Ave.

Bobs & Lolo

along with the always popular Bobs & Lolo at Lougheed Town Centre, with free shows at noon and 1:30 p.m. on Family Day, Feb. 11. Performances will be taking place near London Drugs inside the mall. For more information, see www.lougheedmall.com.

Family fitness

Make Family Day all about fitness and fun with a series of events through the New Westminster parks and recreation department. At the Canada Games Pool there will be an extended public swim from 1 to 8:25 p.m. with the Green Thunder slide open from 1 to 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 to 8 p.m. Over at Queen’s Park Arenex, enjoy a trampoline drop-in from noon to 2 p.m., Motoring Munchkins from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., parent and tot gymnastics from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. and adult and youth gymnastics from 8 to 9:30 a.m. For a more wintery activity, lace up at Moody Park Arena with a Loonie Skate ($1) from 1 to 3 p.m. At the Centennial Community Centre (ages 14-plus), participants in the 9:20 a.m. fitness workout class and the 10:30 a.m. body fit class are encouraged to bring a family member for free.

Ride time: Take a spin on the C.W. Parker carousel.

Meet the face behind your local White Spot For generations, families and friends have gathered together at a White Spot restaurant to share a meal, a laugh or to celebrate a special occasion. White Spot is as West coast as our mountains and ocean. Today, White Spot continues to attract old and young because of chefs such as Danny Markowicz, Executive Development Chef, who are passionate about what they do. Here Markowicz opens up about White Spot and himself.

Q) Where did you learn to cook? I attended S.A.I.T in Calgary and took the professional cooking program. I did my apprenticeship Left to right: James Kennedy CCC, at the Banff Springs Hotel, and Corporate Training Chef. Danny have been cooking ever since. As Markowicz, Executive Development Chef. a child, my dad would take my Chuck Currie, Executive Chef. brother and me grocery shopping Friday after school, and we would cook dinner. Unknowingly, those were my first “black boxes.” Q) Why did you want to become a chef? At a very young age, I was led into the kitchen of my grandfather’s restaurant in Montreal. If I close my eyes and think about it, I can still remember the aroma. I was hooked. Q) How do you describe your cooking style? My style is globally inspired, using classic French techniques from my training. I often find myself on a certain kick, but whether its comfort food, Italian or Moroccan, or maybe Korean, Spanish or Chinese, it’s always the basics that speak first. Q) What is the menu development process that you take to bring new menu items to life? Once we decide on a platform for a promotion, we “blue sky” potential menu items. From that huge list, it gets paired down to a workable few dozen items. We try to work a year out, so that we’re working on a promotion within the same season it will launch. From that list, we internally taste all menu items, review plating, and build recipes accordingly. Once items are approved for test, we then train our test stores on the new items, and run the items for a few weeks. We gather feedback, and make decisions on how to move forward. Eight months later, those items could be at a White Spot near you… Q) What is your favourite restaurant to dine at? That’s a really tough question… The list is long….. But if I had to choose … In Vancouver, Kintaro is still one of my favorites. All I ever have is the BBQ Pork Ramen, but it’s always incredibly satisfying, and there’s something special about huge pots of simmering broth steaming up the windows. Q) What food/dish could you never live without? Cheese. Never! Don’t make me do it!!! www.whitespot.ca

Though not on Family Day, here’s one sure to catch the eye of anyone with small kids: Franklin and Busytown are going to be at Brentwood Town Centre in early March. Performance times as follows: Franklin at 11 a.m. on March 2 and noon on March 3; Busytown at 1 p.m. on March 2 and 2 p.m. on March 3. For more information, see www. brentwoodtowncentre. com.

Rec centre

Here’s another recrea-

tion centre event: the Cameron Recreation Centre at 9523 Cameron St. is hosting a Free Family Day event, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Family Day, for families and children aged 10 months up to five years. Play time, crafts and more, including face painting and riding toys. Call 604-297-4456 for more information.

Get green

While the ski hills are offering special deals for Family Day, don’t forget that there are plenty of outdoor opportunities here at home. In this area, there’s bike trails, Deer Lake Park, Queen’s Park, and more. Check out www.burnaby.ca, www. newwestcity.ca, and www. metrovancouver.org for plenty of information about outdoor spaces and trails. Keep your eyes open for the natural wildlife in the area – Queen’s Park recently had a visit from a rare bird from Asia.

Games day

As luck would have it, the annual (and always popular) Jan Ken Pon day at Nikkei Centre is happening this weekend. The traditional Japanese event is aimed at families with children aged four to 12,

and gives participants a chance to check out heritage games and toys. Play with tops, a Japanese style cup and ball, make your own sumo wrestlers, and then take part in the ultimate rock-paper-scissors tournament. Antique Japanese toys will be on display. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets available by phone 604-777-7000 or in person at Nikkei Centre. Admission is $5 for children over two years and free for accompanying adults. The centre is at 6688 Southoaks Cres.

Get reading

The New Westminster Public Library and all branches of the Burnaby Public Library will be closed for the stat holiday, but prepare in advance with a visit on Saturday to pick up a few extra books – then make Monday a literary Family Day. Throw up some tent forts and get comfy with a stack of books – perhaps a few of the Pigeon series for the young kids, Diary of a Wimpy Kid for the older ones, and maybe a book or two for mom and dad to round out the reading.

To the library

If home reading hour leaves you wanting more,

the New Westminster Public Library has a family storytime the day after Family Day, for all ages, running from 7 to 7:30 p.m. Enjoy stories, songs and rhymes with this free, drop-in program for all ages. This is a special family story time: Clifford the Big Red Dog will be visiting the library for it.

Head downtown

If you’re willing to go a little further afield, the province’s official Family Day celebration is taking place at the Vancouver Art Gallery with a full day of all-ages activities, concerts, street entertainment, face painting, a hockey shootout, artists and more. Science World, Britannia Mining Museum and the Royal B.C. Museum will be on hand with educational activities, and free ice skate rentals and skating will be available at the Robson Square ice rink nearby. Runs Monday, Feb. 11 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. See blog.gov.bc.ca/ bcfamilyday for more.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Burnaby NOW • Friday, February 8, 2013 • A17

Set the mood this Valentine’s Day What would Valentine’s Day be without the soundtrack of romantic songs to share with a loved one? Every year the public is introduced to the latest catalog of love songs, some sappy, some funny, some destined to become classics. When snuggling up to a loved one over an intimate dinner, turn on this playlist of love songs. ❀ All I Want to Do is Make Love to You - Heart ❀ All Out Of Love - Air Supply ❀ Always on My Mind - Willie Nelson ❀ As Long As You Love Me Backstreet Boys ❀ At Last - Etta James

❀ Feel Like Making Love - George Benson

❀ Shower Me With Your Love Surface

❀ Still In Love - Brian McKnight

❀ I Could Fall In Love - Selena

❀ Thank You For Loving Me - Bon Jovi

❀ I Just Called to Say I Love You - Stevie Wonder

❀ That’s When I’ll Stop Loving You - N Sync

❀ I Just Fall In Love Again Carpenters

❀ The Way You Love Me - Faith Hill

❀ I’ll Still Love You More - Trisha Yearwood ❀ I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston ❀ I Will Still Love You - Britney Spears

❀ Because You Loved Me - Celine Dion

❀ Love Takes Time - Mariah Carey

❀ My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion ❀ Remember Me - Marc Anthony ❀ Saving All My Love For You Whitney Houston

❀ The Woman He Loves - Alabama ❀ Unchained Melody - The Righteous Brothers

Who does Valentine’s Day commemorate? While there might be many martyrs named Valentine, the two honoured on Valentine’s Day are Valentine of Rome and Valentine of Terni.

❀ Valentine - Martina McBride ❀ When a Man Loves a Woman - Percy Sledge ❀ When I Fall in Love - Nat King Cole ❀ When You Love Someone - Bryan Adams ❀ Where Does My Heart Beat Now - Celine Dion ❀ With or Without You - U2 ❀ Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton ❀ You Are So Beautiful – Joe Cocker

The former was a Roman priest who was martyred in roughly 269 AD, while the latter was bishop of what is now Terni who was martyred in 197 AD. It was not until the 14th century that any of today’s

popular romantic elements began to take shape when celebrating Valentine’s Day.

As a result of those new developments, the distinctions between Valentine of Rome and Valentine of Terni were gradually lost, eventually prompting the feast of St. Valentine on Feb. 14 to be removed from the General Roman Calendar in 1969. — MetroCreative

Maybe your car just hates drive-thru? CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: I have two things: a son who is a shade-tree mechanic and does a good business out of his backyard, and a 2003 Honda Civic that keeps overheating. The car runs fine and never overheats – unless I am in the drive-thru line at fastfood restaurants! Even when I turn off the air conditioner, the needle continues to rise up to the hot level. My son checked it out and found the radiator cap to be leaking, then replaced it and thought that solved the problem.

He ruled out the fan, as it was running the entire time he left the car running. However, the next time I was in the drive-thru, the needle started rising – again! It didn’t get as high as it had before the new cap, but nevertheless, it was on the way up. Once I get back out on the road, the needle slowly drops back to normal. What could be the cause of this? When my son checked it out, he drove it and let it idle for an hour and it never heated up for him! I threatened to take him with me next time I went to a drive-thru, so he could see what I am talking about, because I know he doesn’t believe me! Do you have any idea what is going on? I really enjoy your radio show and column. Your humour is helpful in relieving the stress that goes along with car trouble. – Marlene

TOM: I think this is a cleverly disguised message from Michelle Obama to get you to cut down on the Big Macs, Marlene. This wouldn’t happen if you were at the drivethru at Organic Beet Puree King. RAY: There may be nothing wrong with the car, Marlene. You say that after the radiator cap was replaced and you stopped at the drive-thru, the needle started to go up again. The question is: How far did it go? TOM: Right. After you drive the car, particularly on the highway or at higher speeds, when you come to a stop, the engine will get hotter temporarily. There’s a lot less air being pushed through the radiator when you’re stopped, so the engine

heats up some before it cools back down.

RAY: So if the needle simply went up to the red mark, and soon came down, there may be nothing wrong with the car. And that may be why it didn’t overheat for your son after idling for an hour. TOM: On the other hand, if the needle went way up, near the hot zone, then there is still something wrong, and it requires further investigation. RAY: In that case, it could be something as simple as a bad thermostat. It could be a water pump with a loose impeller. Or it could be the everpopular and dreaded leaky head gasket. TOM: Either the fail-

ing water pump or the bad head gasket could work fine when the car is idling, but could cause trouble after hard driving. That may be why the car doesn’t overheat for your son.

RAY: So I’d suggest that you do take him with you to the drive-thru. Tell him the burger and fries are on you. Then drive the way you normally drive, and let him see where the needle ends up. He may confirm that there’s no problem. TOM: Or he may realize that he hasn’t fixed it, and that he has to check out our other theories. Or he may just enjoy the free lunch and want to repeat this test-drive experiment 10 or 15 more times. Good luck, Marlene.

GREATER VANCOUVER CAN STILL BE AFFORDABLE

If a recent survey is to be believed, Vancouver is the

second least affordable city in the world to buy a home after Hong Kong. Cameron Muir, chief economist for the BC Real Estate Association (BCREA), doesn’t put much stock in the U.S.based consulting firm Demographia’s findings. “It’s very hard to take this study and take it to the bank,” says Muir. “There are too many different variables between countries to use only one ratio to come to this conclusion. “If it isn’t affordable here then why are people living here?” Muir believes residential values have improved affordability this year due to lower prices, both actual and inflation adjusted. Many potential buyers who opted not to buy last year will likely enter the marketplace over the next year because of the province’s relatively strong financial conditions. That’s because that unemployment remains relatively low in Vancouver, interest rates are at an all-time low and mortgages are fairly easy to get. However, Muir concedes that living in a gateway city, close to both the ocean and mountains, and where there are land restraints, is going to be more expensive. “As long as you don’t expect to buy a detached home on the west side of Vancouver or in the downtown core where homes are more expensive, the suburban markets, Surrey and beyond, and pockets of Greater Vancouver, are still affordable,” adds Muir. Anne McMillin, president and CEO of the Urban Development Institute, Pacific Region, agrees with Muir. She believes Demographia doesn’t fairly portray Vancouver’s real estate picture because multi-million dollar properties skewed the median price. “While it is true that the City of Vancouver has a severe housing affordability problem — in general — that is not true for the whole of the Greater Vancouver Region, or for that matter B.C.,” says McMillin. “Vancouver prices,

for both new homes and resale, can heavily influence any measure of affordability for the broader region. “Other suburbs, such as Richmond and West Vancouver, could also be classified as unaffordable, and taken as a part of the rest of Metro Vancouver, these suburbs also affect measures of ‘average affordability’ across the region.” A more reliable approach would be to compare median house prices to working household incomes. McMillin went on to add: “In the Vancouver context, comparing the price of owned homes versus incomes

necessarily translate into affordability by 50 per cent across the board for working households. “A marginal increase in affordability amongst working households, for a new condo, has much less to do with the price of the condo and a lot more to do with household incomes in the region,” adds McMillin.

The good news, though, is that regardless of incomes, many markets within Metro Vancouver do offer a range of product type targeting first time buyers with incomes as low as $18 per hour. For instance, a new one-bedroom wood-frame condo in Surrey sells for as little as $109,000. A new one-bedroom concrete condo in Langley sells for $189,000, without sacrificing any of the quality that a purchaser may see in a new condo in downtown Vancouver. Elsewhere in the province, such as parts of Vancouver Island and the Okanagan, are actually quite affordable. Meanwhile, Mel Kraft, a seasoned realtor for more than 44 years, says you have to look at all the variables before saying Vancouver is unaffordable.

is also a fairly inaccurate portrayal of affordability, considering there are a substantial number of multifamily homes and townhouse developments that are affordable to a large segment of the market that could not otherwise afford a single-family home on the Westside.” “If we were to examine the level of affordability across all product types in Greater Vancouver, and did not include the City of Vancouver, approximately 40 per cent of working households could afford a new concrete condo, whereas about 35 per cent could afford a new single family home.” Although a new condo in Greater Vancouver is roughly half the price of a new single family home, that does not

“Yes, our housing is more expensive than some of the other areas in the country, but you get what you pay for,” says Kraft, who works at Landmark Realty Corporation in its Abbostford office. “Before anyone suggests that we have some of the highest priced real estate in the country, you have to offset that with the availability of jobs, health care, recreational services and how far you may have to travel and how often to keep in touch with family and friends.” Regions such as the Fraser Valley are a good bet for better prices and lifestyle, adds Kraft. “If you drive for one hour from just about any one of the communities in the Fraser Valley you can be in absolute total wilderness, or to some of the best shopping and the best parks, as well as ski hills, a wide range of job opportunities, and by far some of the best educational facilities in the country,” he says. In the end, all agree that B.C. is more affordable than the doomsayers are leading us to believe.

Down and out: The Grandview Steelers were eliminated from the playoffs following an 8-2 loss to the Aldergrove Kodiaks in Pacific Junior Hockey League play last Sunday.

Steelers miss junior B playoffs Tom Berridge sports editor

The Grandview Steelers will spend the Pacific Junior Hockey League post season in the stands for a second straight season. The Burnaby Winter Club-based junior B hockey club was officially eliminated from the playoffs on Sunday following the team’s 8-2 loss to the Aldergrove Kodiaks. “This year we still had a chance, but we blew it up on Sunday, when we got beat up pretty good,” said Steelers head coach Aldo

Bruno. The loss left Grandview with 36 points, eight points behind the fourthplace North Vancouver Wolf Pack, with just three regular season games left to play. The Steelers fell behind early in the game Sunday, and were outscored 4-1 over the next two periods despite outshooting the Kodiaks. The lack of offence up front and inconsistency in goal highlighted the shortcomings that led to Grandview’s 17-22-1-1 record this season, said

Bruno. “I think we needed a little bit of both – a little more firepower and better goaltending,” said Bruno. “Our goal was to finish in the top three, so we underachieved a lot.” Last year, Grandview finished tied for the fourth and final playoff spot with North Vancouver, but failed to advance on fewer games won. This season, Grandview virtually played catchup with the North Delta Devils and North Van for the second-half of the league schedule, but failed

to ever get on a sustained roll. North Van and North Delta are currently both tied with 44 points. Steelers rookie Nicholas Hermary leads the team in scoring with 20 goals and 21 assists in 34 games played. Second-year forward Vik Sanghera is next with 14 goals and 38 total points. Bruno admitted the No. 1 priority for next season is goaltending. But he is also considering going back to a greater Steelers Page 31

Changes behind Salmonbellies’ bench Tom Berridge sports editor

There will be new faces behind the bench when the New Westminster Salmonbellies begin their pre-season camp in May. Just one day after taking two of the top junior prospects in the game today – Logan Schuss and Jeff Cornwall – it was announced that Steve Goodwin and his entire intermediate A coaching staff would take over behind the bench of the senior A lacrosse club this season. Goodwin and his coaching assistants, Russ Heard, Jamie Stewart

and Darrin London, were named to replace former head coach Ken Thomas and assistants Chris Gill and Sheldon Palidwor with the senior A club on Tuesday. “We didn’t get it done (and that includes me),” said New Westminster president and general manager Dan Richardson. Richardson indicated that after the exit interviews with players following last year’s finish out of the playoffs, changes were asked for. “At the end of the day, everyone had to take a piece of it. But players will be a part of it,” Richardson said. “There will be some changes on the

floor, too. It’s going to be a whole new lineup when we hit the floor in May.” Richardson added that Thomas felt it was time to step aside after two years as head coach of the senior A club. He is hopeful that the former ’Bellies GM will stay on in some other capacity. Richardson also said the coaching change was announced a day after the draft to keep the focus on the players and not to direct any undue attention on Goodwin’s son, Brandon, who ultimately went to Langley as the seventh pick of the first round.

The New Westminster Salmonbellies new coaching staff will bring a new level of fitness to the storied senior A lacrosse club. That is the message from incoming head coach Steve Goodwin following the announcement Tuesday that he will replace outgoing coach Ken Thomas at the helm of the 24-time Mann Cup champions. “I’m excited. I’m a New West guy. I love lacrosse in New Westminster. It’s a culture of New Westminter,” said Goodwin. Goodwin will bring his entire coaching staff from intermediate A to the senior club after a week of deliberation. His three assistants – future hallof-famer Russ Heard, Jamie Stewart and Darrin London – have virtually grown up together in the game through minor lacrosse in New West. “It was all of us or none of us,” said Goodwin. “We’re a little bit different.” The four friends replace Thomas and his coaching assistants Sheldon

High school hoop playoffs set to begin Tom Berridge sports editor

Byrne Creek nearly blew a tire enroute to first place in the BurWest high school boy’s basketball regular season. The eastside Bulldogs scrapped out a 57-55 win over the upstart Moscrop Panthers to wrap up the league title in the final game of the schedule on Wednesday. Earlier in the week, the No. 10-ranked Bulldogs came within five points of knocking off a top-ranked Tamanawis team.

On Monday, Byrne Creek beat up on New Westminster and then upset No. 8 W.J. Mouat 7863 in Abbotsford the following day. But at home against the Panthers there was little left in the tank, said Byrne Creek head coach Wayne Best. “There was no energy in the warm up. Emotionally they were just spent,” Best said. “It’s mental toughness – Byrne Creek disease. We have all the physical tools and not the mental stamina to back it up. We beat New West by 35 (points) and

then a complete egg last night.” With the playoffs beginning next week, there is little room for a similar malfunction, Best added. Burnaby Mountain will host the opening round of the playoffs on Tuesday. The winners of Nos. 3 through 6 will then play the first- and second-place teams at Byrne Creek on Wednesday, beginning at 5:15 p.m. The championship final is scheduled at Byrne Creek on Friday at 5:15 p.m. The No. 9-ranked Burnaby South Rebels

will be the hosts for the BurWest high school girls’ post season. South wrapped up the regular season title following an 89-34 victory over Burnaby Central on Wednesday. “The kids have a lot of confidence,” said Rebels girls’ coach Merv Magus. The girls’ final four will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday at Burnaby South. The banner final is scheduled for Wednesday at South. Tipoff is set for 6:45 p.m.

Giants continue to lead

The Northwest Giants took three of a possible four points from the Northeast Chiefs in B.C. major midget hockey play last weekend. The two teams played to a 1-1 draw at the Burnaby Winter Club on Saturday before the Giants prevailed 7-4 at Planet Ice in Coquitlam on Sunday. Tied 4-4 heading into the final period, defenceman Trevor McLean tal-

lied the game-winner with his sixth goal of the year, spearheading a three-goal third period for the Giants. At home, Gavin Gould scored the Giants’ only goal in the team’s third draw this season. The Giants improved their first-place record to 29-2-3, eight points up on current second-place club Cariboo Cougars. The Cougars took their

two-game series from the Okanagan Rockets in an important weekend for the two top-three clubs. The Chiefs clawed one point closer to the Rockets with the tie against the Giants. This weekend, the Giants are in Nanaimo for a two-game set against the North Island Silvertips. tberridge@burnabynow. com

next level and I’m proud to say I’ve done that again, but it cost us.” Bruno said. This Sunday, the Steelers will face the Abbotsford Pilots at the Burnaby Winter Club. Game time is 4 p.m.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Social joys, optimism, entertainment, wish fulfillment and flirtations fill this week. But draw back from all this Sunday afternoon to Tuesday eve. Love holds many future disappointments for couples that form/begin Sunday. Things you do to improve systems, meetings you attend, charitable, spiritual and governmental involvements, all somehow aid your standing with higher-ups Monday/Tuesday. Your energy and charisma soar Tuesday night through Thursday. Start important projects, ask favours. (Start self-employment ventures before 1:30 p.m. PST Wednesday.) Chase money Friday onward. Taurus April 20-May 20: The accent remains on ambition, career, testing situations, reputation, prestige and status relations. Your hopes rise Sunday p.m. to Tuesday, but wait until Monday to form plans, start a relationship, flirt, or begin any project – this day features new beginnings and old successes. Retreat, lie low and rest Tuesday night through Thursday. Contemplate and plan. You might encounter a subtle but deep disagreement, or a significant “order” Wednesday. Your energy and charisma surge upward Friday/Saturday. If someone opposes you, a quiet talk might solve it. You have to admit, to gain. Gemini May 21-June 20: This is your last week of pondering and understanding, of feeling one with society, of travel and intellectual activities, and of gentle love. Not that these things end, but sooon another influence will enter, to bring a whole new set of priorities and goals. You get a hint of that new ambitious influence Sunday afternoon to Tuesday eve – though this is just that, a hint – the ground is not solid enough yet to commit or start a new project, especially Sunday. Tuesday night through Thursday brings social joys, friends, wish fulfillment, flirtations. Retreat, rest Friday/Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: A mystery continues, but you’re close to solving it (and probably will, Monday). If you want to make a significant investment, this is your last chance for a few weeks – but do so AFTER Sunday – a day that holds little good for anybody. Don’t let a sexual attraction flower into an approach or relationship Sunday. Monday/Tuesday bring wisdom, a mellow mood, gentle love, perhaps travel, school or legal developments. Be ambitious Tuesday night through Thursday: you’ll impress higher-ups, but more importantly you can succeed with a financial effort. Joy, popularity come Friday onward. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The accent remains on relationships, co-operation and challenges, opposition and opportunities. Be diplomatic and eager to join others. Be cautious Sunday – the wrong relationships arise. Seize a financial opportunity, or a doorway to intimacy, early Monday morning. Tuesday night through Thursday brings understanding, love, far travel, educational programs, intellectual prowess, international contacts, possibly legal affairs. Chase opportunities in these areas – but sidestep opposition. Your ambitions, career get a boost Friday/Saturday – it might come from past family efforts. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: It’s your last week of “overwork” for a while, Virgo. Soon, fresh, exciting horizons will ascend – new people, too. Sunday to Tuesday gives you a taste – but not a bite – of those future horizons – don’t act, though – wait. The best idea, pre-noon Monday, is to seek old openings, used items, or to connect with an old flame. Mysteries and valuable commitments arise Tuesday night through Thursday. Commitment can be to a lifestyle, a financial action, or to someone, with “intimacy attached.” Love, wisdom, education, far travel or legal matters come Friday/Saturday – all’s good!

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This is your last strongly romantic week, Libra. A sweet affection will remain until month’s end, but the strength, the surge, will be over. If you’re single/seeking, act now – especially Tuesday night through Thursday, when your “mating prospects” are high. (You might confront the fear – and it’s correct – that mating will change your cosy home world. But is that such a bad thing? It certainly is a great excuse for stagnating.) Earlier, tackle routine chores – carefully Sunday, confidently Monday. Friday/Saturday bring depths, sex, financial commitment – or not. Embrace the new. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: This is your last week of “domestic overload,” Scorpio. Soon, a period of pleasure and creativity will begin. Meanwhile, though Sunday to Tuesday do bring a wee streak of pleasure, romance and creativity, it is unsubstantial – enjoy the feelings, rather than trying to build anything on them. Tackle chores midweek – don’t be distracted by unreliable directions or information midday Wednesday. Exciting meetings, opportunities, fresh horizons confront you Friday/Saturday. One of these seems linked to your employment or a co-worker. Be mildly wary, but don’t reject a good person. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: This is your last week of waiting, talking and feeling restless, Sage. Soon, you’ll face significant trends in domestic and security, property and shelter areas. Sunday to Tuesday give hints of this upcoming phase, but they aren’t the sort of hints you should run with or build on. Just watch and think. DON’T start a new romance or any project Sunday. Speaking of romance, it comes barrelling in Tuesday night through Thursday – if not romance, then you will experience a streak of creativity, pleasure, beauty or “winning.” Tackle chores Friday/Saturday – you’ll succeed.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Continue to deal with money, earnings, buying/selling, and possessions. Your $ luck remains high. If you ask for a pay raise Friday you might get a “no” – but that’s okay. You might meet someone interesting Sunday, but do not begin a friendship or more loving relationship. This link would “crush love.” If you want to get those errands done, start early Monday morn. Tuesday eve through Thursday bring domestic duties, security, home comforts. This is a splendid time to deal with leases, premises, business foundations – and family. Your romantic instincts awaken Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your effectiveness, charisma, energy and clout remain high. Your most charming self radiates, attracts admirers or lovers. Start significant projects, especially in money areas (early morning Monday) travel and communications (Wednesday eve to Thursday eve) and home or domestic zones (Friday/Saturday). One warning: make sure these projects can be completed, or can take one solid step forward, before the middle of next week. (A slow-down’s coming.) Your money affairs run swiftly – too swiftly, if you’re spending! Love, romance and children’s affairs go luckily forward, to June. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Although your energy and attractiveness rise Sunday to Tuesday, you still have a week of resting, thinking and planning before you move into solid forward gear. Soon, the world will be yours to play with – but not yet. Avoid any love-based commitment Sunday. A hidden flaw would wreck its future. Chase money Tuesday eve through Thursday. Buy items, especially high tech or tools, after 2 p.m. Wednesday, not before. A short trip, errand, visit, call or email leads to successful and happy “contact forming” Friday/Saturday. Property/ family issues, held back lately, will resolve soon. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
