Naked man Tasered

Six Burnaby RCMP officers subdue aggressive man found on woman’s couch Alfie Lau

staff reporter

Six Burnaby RCMP officers and two Taser shots were needed to subdue a man in Burnaby early Tuesday morning. According to Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Dave Reid, the incident occurred in the 6500-block of Elgin Avenue just after 2:30 a.m. “A young woman called a male friend saying that she needed help,” said Reid. “She said there was a naked man sleeping on her couch, who was extremely drunk and possibly on drugs.” The woman then called 911, and when police arrived at the scene, they tried to wake up the man. “He became extremely aggressive, and we had to employ the Taser on him,” said Reid. “That didn’t have much effect so we employed the Taser again.” That still didn’t slow the naked man down much, so six Burnaby RCMP officers were needed to subdue him. Paramedics sedated the man at the scene before he was taken to Burnaby Hospital, where he was sedated once again. “We still have no ID on him, and the people who called in (the original incident) have not given us any info either,” said Reid. “There were no injuries to anyone else.” Reid said police are still working on the case and trying to identify the man and what led to police being called to the scene. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

On strike: LifeLabs Medical Laboratory Services employees held a two-day strike at locations throughout B.C. this week. In Burnaby, the Gilmore Avenue location was closed while B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union members walked the picket line.

LifeLabs strike closes local site

Half of testing centres shut down during labour dispute with laboratory workers Marelle Reid staff reporter

A B.C.-based medical lab company closed half its patient service centres, while employees went on rotating strikes around the province this week. On Monday, LifeLabs Medical Laboratory Services closed 40 of its 80 patient services centres, including the Burnaby location on Gilmore Avenue, as the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union began two days of strike action. The union says negotiations with the

employer broke down after a meeting with a mediator on Saturday. “We do want to get back to the bargaining table as quickly as possible, but we just can’t accept the offer that’s presently on the table,” said union communications officer Karen Tankard. “So, LifeLabs has got to come back with something more.” LifeLabs is offering its 709 employees within the union a four per cent increase over three years, which the union says is inadequate for the cost of living in Vancouver. “All they want is something fair and reasonable so they’re not falling behind with inflation,” Tankard said. The last raise employees had was a one per cent increase on Jan. 1, 2011. The employer says the current contract offer is “competitive in the mar-

The LifeLabs sites that were closed during the strike on Monday and Tuesday will resume normal operations as of Wednesday, but more sites will close throughout the province as the rotating strike continues. This will not affect any further locations in Burnaby. LifeLabs testing facilities in Victoria and Burnaby will also continue full service this week and report results without delay, according to a report on the company’s website.

West Nile virus plan quashed Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

The City of Burnaby has consented to Metro Vancouver’s plan to end a program that monitored mosquitoes and killed larvae to prevent the spread of the West Nile virus. Metro Vancouver asked that members of the regional district consent to repeal the program bylaw, which was established in 2005, as the virus has not been a significant threat in the region and provincial funding for the program has been cut. The virus can be carried by birds and spread by mosquitoes and can affect people and other mammals. “It appears that this issue is not so dominant now that it requires us to have this continuing resource,” Mayor Derek Corrigan said at the Jan. 14 council meeting. Coun. Nick Volkow questioned the wording of the letter from Metro Vancouver, wondering if the program was being cancelled due to a lack of funding or because there is minimal virus activity in the region. He pointed out that media reports still refer to the “creep of the West Nile virus into B.C.” Corrigan and Bob Moncur, the city manager, responded by saying the main point is that regional health authorities recommended in 2012 that municipalities stop monitoring the mosquito population and preemptively killing larvae specifically to prevent the spread of West Nile. “Despite isolated incidences of West Nile – and again, they’ve not been in the Lower Mainland, they’ve been in the Okanagan and close to the U.S. border,” Moncur said at the meeting. Volkow said the wording of the letter “muddies the waters” around the issue. “The board decided to repeal Bylaw No. 1034 because provincial funding for local governments was discontinued in 2012,” the letter stated. “In addition, both the Fraser Health authority and Vancouver Coastal Health recommended that no West Nile virus surveillance or preemptive larvaciding be carried out in 2012 in the Metro Vancouver municipalities they oversee. These decisions are based on the minimal West Nile virus activity observed in the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia.” Human cases of the disease were first identified in B.C. in 2009, according to a previous press release from Fraser Health. Ministry of Health funding for the program ended because the health authorities recommended the preemptive actions were no longer necessary, according to Tasleem Juma, public affairs consultant for Fraser Health. Certain parts of the area covered by Fraser Health, such as Fraser East, will continue to preemptively control the mosquito population, as a nuisance issue, she said. 6

Best friends: SPCA staffer Rhonda Ott and Ryan Voutilainen, the Burnaby branch manager, with Binx the cat and Beans the puppy. The SPCA wants the two adopted as a pair after the two bonded in foster care.

The Burnaby SPCA is putting a puppy and a visually impaired kitten up for adoption as a pair, after the two recovered together in foster care. “We would like to get them both adopted together. They’ve kind of bonded together with their sad stories,” said Ryan Voutilainen, branch manager for the Burnaby SPCA. “They enjoy being together.” Last November, Beans, a Yorkshire terrier mix, was found in a Burnaby’s George Green Park, lost, cold and malnourished. “They found this poor little puppy, who was only at that time probably around six weeks old,” Voutilainen said. “He’s a Yorkshire terrier mix. He was hypothermic, so he was really, really cold, he was also a little bit underweight.” Rhonda Ott, an SPCA staff member on duty that night took the puppy into her care. “For the first two weeks, it was touch Visions* Shoppers* Staples* Rona* Norburn Electric* The Home Depot* Lowe’s Canada* * not in all areas

City firefighters raise thousands for campaign Boot drive brings in $36,000 in two days Alfie Lau

staff reporter

It only took two days for Burnaby firefighters to raise $36,000 for one of their favourite charities. Burnaby firefighters hit the streets on Nov. 16 and 17 for the annual Fire Fighters Boot Drive for Muscular Dystrophy Canada and the final numbers came to $36,000. Firefighters presented a cheque for that amount on Jan. 16. “Everybody gets involved,” said Rob Lamoureux, president of the Burnaby Firefighters

IAFF Local 323 and the Burnaby Firefighters Charitable Society. “Almost all of our 282 members were out there on that Friday night and all day Saturday and we were very happy to raise what we raised – $35,000 was our benchmark and we were able to get there. Of course, we want to do more, but we’re happy with how we did.” During that November weekend, Burnaby firefighters were at locations all across the city, including B.C. liquor stores at Willingdon Avenue and Hastings Street, Brentwood Town Centre and HighGate shopping centre; the Safeway store at Willingdon Avenue and Hastings Street; Costco locations at Still Creek Avenue and Brighton Avenue;

Kensington Square plaza; Metropolis at Metrotown; and Lougheed Mall. In 2011, firefighters raised $2.9 million for the cause, of which $30,000 came from Burnaby firefighters. Since 1954, Canadian firefighters have been helping Muscular Dystrophy Canada fight the battle against muscular dystrophy – a group of more than 150 types of neuromuscular disorders characterized by progressive muscle wasting and weakness. Over time, many people with neuromuscular disorders are eventually unable to speak, walk or even breath. Some diseases are life-threatening and, at present, there is no cure. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

ALZHEIMER’S AWARENESS MONTH January is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month in Canada, a time to talk about and raise awareness of this degenerative disease. Alzheimer’s causes memory loss, affects mood and behavior, reduces one’s ability to communicate, and impairs immune functions. Ultimately, most Alzheimer’s patients die within ten years of being diagnosed. More than 70,000 British Columbians live with the disease, and it’s estimated that number will more than double within a generation. Last year, our government introduced guidelines to improve care for dementia patients. The new guidelines provide increased support for doctors, nurses and care providers, and were shaped by the best, most recent evidence-based practices. We also updated the HealthLink BC website with new information to help persons with dementia and their families better understand the condition. This includes information about the Alzheimer Society’s First Link program, which provides dementia patients with information and access to programs and services that can help them. To learn more visit HealthLink BC at www.healthlinkbc.ca or the Alzheimer Society of British Columbia at www.alzheimerbc.org. For questions or comments, contact me at Richard.Lee.MLA@leg.bc.ca.

debacle or scandal of one variety or another. Makes for great headlines. But it also, unfortunately, makes for a good diversion. Keeping the public riled up about something “shocking” keeps the conversation safely away from other, often more important topics of conversation and helps political parties rally a sense of partisanship among voters. It’s a political truth that’s defined and shaped campaigns in this province since the beginning. So expect to hear about all those past

scandals – along with new ones like the Port Mann ice bombs – as we head into the stumping season in advance of election day on May 14. We’re predicting this will be a hotly contested election – and a close race always lends itself to muckraking and finger pointing. Let’s see if the hopefuls can keep the discussion on high ground, focused on real issues – certainly, the people of B.C. deserve that, and more. With voting rates continuing to spiral downward, taking a new tact certainly can’t hurt.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Important to tell refugee tales Dear Editor:

Re: Survivor Man escapes Vietnam, Burnaby NOW, Jan. 16. Thank you for publishing the piece on Le Nguyen’s journey as an asylum seeker from Vietnam to Canada. I found the story compelling and a nice contrast to much of what has recently been published in the mainstream press about refugees and asylum seekers. As Mr. Nguyen’s story illustrates, many people are simply looking for a safe place to live and build a life. Contrary to Jason Kenney’s characterization of refugees as “bogus” – a reference he makes repeatedly whenever the opportunity arises, we

see through this story, that the lives of refugees are complex and filled with many difficult decisions. As global inequalities deepen, the reasons why people feel the need to flee their homeland are varied. Mr. Nguyen represents the classic, though not untypical, story of migrants and immigrants who simply want an opportunity to thrive in Canada. There are many thousands of people, who, if given the chance, would reproduce Mr. Nguyen’s story. Unfortunately, our current immigration policies do not see people like Mr. Nguyen as “desirable” anymore. Instead, we value wealth and credentials over the desire to work hard.

Paying for propaganda Dear Editor:

It’s enough to make you wonder why we pay taxes. Recently, the B.C. Liberals spent $15 million of taxpayer money to promote themselves and their economic action plan, which according to recent statistics has not succeeded in producing jobs at anywhere near the rate promised. And we have the newest outrage from Ottawa – a partisan attack against the NDP by Julian Fantino, minister of international cooperation, was posted on the Canadian International Development Agency website. This is nothing new, but it’s startling to see the extent to which our right-wing governments spend taxpayer money and violate the impartiality of government agencies simply to deliver partisan attacks. Even if we’re generous and say that work time was not used to produce the B.C. Liberal ads or that staff time wasn’t

used to post the CIDA rant, that still doesn’t explain why they’re being posted on sites meant for government information. A reminder, I think, is needed for our provincial and federal governments; Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four was not meant to be an instruction manual, and we have no need for the endless propagandizing, particularly when the government is using our tax dollars to finance the propaganda. We do not need a Ministry of Brainwashing; use our tax dollars for programs and services, not banal attempts to talk down ideological opponents. Trevor Ritchie, Burnaby

Legalize secondary suites Dear Editor:

There are at least 10,000 nonconforming “illegal, suites in Burnaby. The city knows this and has chosen to ignore the problem. Their unwritten policy is to investigate only upon receipt of a complaint and enforce only when forced to. This is unacceptable. Strict enforcement would result in large numbers of people being forced from their homes. Ignoring the law results in disrespect for authority. Both alternatives are unacceptable. Secondary suites should have been legalized a long time ago. This has happened in most if not all of the surrounding cities so there are good precedents for how to implement such a policy.

PUBLIC HEARING The Council of the City of Burnaby hereby gives notice that it will hold a Public Hearing TUESDAY, 2013 January 29 AT 7:00 P.M. in the Council Chamber, Burnaby City Hall, 4949 Canada Way, Burnaby, B.C., V5G 1M2, to receive representations in connection with the following proposed amendments to “Burnaby Zoning Bylaw 1965”. 1)

out any fiscal plan of its own. Nevertheless, we can expect the premier to continue her complaint that Dix and the NDP are being secretive and therefore dishonest about their intentions. Clark’s challenge is to not come across as a chronic complainer. The latest Angus Reid poll shows her party is 15 points back of the NDP in public opinion, with 15 weeks until election day. That’s a lot of ground to be made up over a very short period of time, and complaining about your opponent’s tactics isn’t going to be enough to close that gap. ◆

A few columns back I wrote that Education Minister Don McRae and the province’s school boards were about to combat each other over his apparent insistence that the boards find savings within the system to pay for wage hikes for unionized support staff. Trustees were getting apoplectic at the prospect of finding money to pay for, say, a 1.5 per cent wage hike while they were scrambling to pay for existing services. McRae has now backed off. He says all he made was a “request” that boards find a way to pay for wage increases and that he never actually “demanded” anything. No board acceded to his

request, so McRae has simply let the matter go. Though there may be no fight on this issue, there will still be a likely loser: support staff workers, mostly members of CUPE, may well be staring at yet another wage freeze. We may well see job action down the road from some CUPE locals. But any strike would last only a short time, as the government would move swiftly to legislate an end to one. If CUPE thinks they may get better treatment from an NDP government, it should remember that party legislated ends to CUPE school strikes when it was in power.

Local couple suing bus company Pair file lawsuit against company involved in the Oregon bus crash staff reporter

A Burnaby couple who survived a bus crash that killed nine people on an Oregon highway last month have filed a lawsuit against the Coquitlam tour bus company and the driver. June Won Kim and his wife Hee Eun Kim are alleging in their civil claim

also allege the driver, a church deacon from Surrey, was too tired, speeding, failed to obey road signs and operated a vehicle contrary to restrictions on his driver’s licence. The couple say they both suffered a brain injury, a collapsed lung, and back and neck injuries resulting in permanent disability. Won Kim, a dental technician, said he also suffered permanent injuries to his face, hand, knee, feet and teeth. The couple is seeking

unspecified damages. The company operating the bus, Mi Joo Tour Travel, with offices in Vancouver and Coquitlam, has been banned from operating in both Canada and the United States. Mi Joo company attorney Mark Scheer has said the bus driver had plenty of sleep the night before the Dec. 30 crash and that black ice was a major factor in the crash. – with files from The Vancouver Sun

A man has been arrested after a marijuana grow operation on Hedley Avenue near Ron McLean Park was taken down recently. According to a Burnaby RCMP press release, the RCMP’s drug section recently executed a search warrant on the home in the quiet South Burnaby neighbourhood and located a marijuana grow-op in the basement. Police also discovered an electrical bypass and called in an electrician from B.C. Hydro. The electrician expressed concern that the stress on the neighbourhood’s electrical system was so severe that a fire was imminent. “It is unacceptable that (people) will gladly put their neighbours in harm’s way while in pursuit of the vast profits these grow operations generate,” said Cpl. Steve Bolt of the Burnaby RCMP drug section. “We are doing all we can to ensure we locate and dismantle all illegal grow operations in the city of Burnaby.” Police are recommending charges against the man and discovered he is also facing charges for marijuana trafficking in an unrelated case.

Finches flock to city Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Last year was the year of the finch for local birdwatchers conducting the annual Christmas Bird Count. “This is like a finch winter,” said George Clulow, organizer of the Burnaby count. The Christmas bird count is a yearly census of winter birds conducted across Canada, the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean, with tens of thousands of bird enthusiasts participating. Clulow, a local birder who has been organizing the Burnaby count for decades, also noted an important new addition to the count: the whitewinged crossbill, a northern finch that lives across Canada’s boreal forest. “They are total nomads. They travel spectacular distances and show up here,

where they haven’t been seen for years,” he said. The red crossbill and common redpoll, also types of finches, were spotted in record numbers in Burnaby, and the pine siskin, another member of the finch family, was seen in very high numbers. The highest previous number of pine siskins spotted was in 2003, when 274 were counted, but this year, volunteers spied 724. “It’s all part of this finch phenomena where the birds are coming south from the boreal forest,” Clulow explained. “It’s due to them moving south due to food shortages where they normally spend the winter.” Finches feed on the seeds of coniferous trees, Clulow explained, and this year’s crop was likely poor, driving the birds south to find food. In Burnaby, nine volunteers split into two teams to cover the Deer Lake and

Burnaby Lake area and the Still Creek corridor. Every evening at dusk, thousands of Lower Mainland crows return to the Still Creek business area to roost along a stretch of trees lining the creek, and according to Clulow, the crow population counted there seems to be growing smaller. In 2009, volunteers counted 30,000 crows. In 2010 the number dropped to 23,000 and then 18,000 in 2011. This year, Clulow only counted 8,000, and he’s not sure why the number seem to be declining. “It could be all of the constant scaring to get them away from the buildings, I don’t know, but it seems like we are in a four-year trend of decline,” he said. “It will be interesting to see if it stays or stabilizes.” The birds can be a problem for surrounding businesses, some of which have resorted to various tactics to keep the corvids away.

Do what you love to achieve fitness goals

Starting small with walks and choosing enjoyable activities is key to maintaining resolutions Marelle Reid staff reporter

As January stretches on and many a resolute North American has lost momentum or given up on goals for the new year, an instructor at Simon Fraser University offers advice for weight loss and fitness. One of the main reasons it’s so hard to achieve fitness goals is because we think of exercise as just one more thing on our “to do” lists, says Tony Leyland, senior lecturer in the biomedical and kinesiology department at Simon Fraser University. “I think people do tend to “If you’re inacseparate fitness tive, don’t think or activity from their daily lives, that you have and I think that is to run a 10 K, part of the problem,” he told the because you do Burnaby NOW. have to walk Instead of before you can thinking of exercise as something run.” to be done at a specific time and SHAUN KARP location, like the Personal trainer gym, we should be incorporating more movement into our daily lives, says Leyland. Take the stairs instead of the elevator if you work on the second floor, for example. Get off the bus two stops before home. These are some of the ways Leyland suggests we can beat the chronic sedentary condition so pervasive in our society. Of course, getting to the gym to get your heart rate up and do strength training three times a week is ideal. But if this is your only form of exercise, it can be difficult to maintain as a healthy habit, he notes. “It’s that separation, thinking, ‘I can’t make it to the gym so I won’t do anything,’” he said.

Larry Wright/burnaby now

Keep at it: Burnaby-based personal trainer Shaun Karp suggests inactive people wanting to get fit should start small, walking or taking the stairs instead of aiming to run 10 kilometres right away.

Burnaby-based personal trainer Shaun Karp echoes this sentiment, suggesting anything is better than nothing. Karp says many inactive people believe activities like walking or taking the stairs won’t make a difference to their health, but he encourages people to start small.

“If you’re inactive, don’t think that you have to run a 10 K, because you do have to walk before you can run,” he says. “And if you have the goal that you’re going to run the 10 K, it’s fine if you’re a person who might be able to (only) walk a kilometre this week,” he said.

Karp says 90 per cent of the New Year’s resolutions he hears from his clients involve weight loss. Ultimately the most important factor besides incorporating exercise into daily life, is to pick an activity that you truly enjoy, he says.

bbot looking to carry momentum into 2013 editorial paul holden president & ceo of the bbot

While too many outlooks and annual reports these days still reference a fragile economy and business challenges, I’m pleased to report that 2012 was a good year for the Burnaby Board of Trade, with new growth, new programs, and positive results. We have continued to build important new relationships with key partners in the community, we’re more engaged than ever in representing local businesses on important policy matters, and we have been successful in our main goal to better serve our membership by working to improve every aspect of our business operations. For us, 2013 is going to be an opportunity to build on those successes to make a bigger difference for our membership and the community at large.

Last year we introduced to our membership two major projects the BBOT was working on. The first was the Pledge for a Sustainable Community, a comprehensive online resource with the goal of helping businesses large and small reduce their carbon footprint while at the same time promoting their company and saving money.

Pennies to be phased out beginning in early February The Canadian Government announced last year as part of its Economic Action Plan that it would be phasing out the penny, a process that will begin on February 4th, 2013. The reasoning behind the decision, according to the Department of Finance website, is due to its excessive and rising cost of production relative to face value, the increased accumulation of pennies by Canadians in their households, environmental considerations, and the significant handling costs the penny imposes on retailers, financial institutions and the economy in general. The site also claims that phasing out the one cent coin will save taxpayers an estimated $11 million per year. Once the Royal Canadian Mint has ceased distributing pennies on February 4th, businesses are encouraged to begin rounding their cash transactions to the nearest nickel. For example, a cup of coffee that cost $2.84 after tax would be rounded up to $2.85. A sandwich costing $4.62 would round down to $4.60. Only cash transactions will require rounding, as cheques and electronic payment methods (debit, credit cards, etc) can be settled to the exact amount. For more detailed information on the phase out, visit the Department of Finance Canada website at !ttp#//www.$n."c.ca. !

PST returns in April With the Provincial Sales Tax (PST) set to return on April 1st, 2013, the Burnaby Board of Trade is working to make sure member businesses are fully prepared to make the transition. Over the next couple of months, the Board will be regularly updating bbot.ca with updated information, the PST’s expected impact on business, links to government information, and helpful tips. The BBOT will also be holding seminars and events including a special breakfast event with Minister of State for Small Business Naomi Yamamoto on January 24th, and a Making the Switch PST transition seminar on February 7th. It is important to note that most businesses will need to register with the Government of British Columbia and attain a PST registration number. For detailed information on the transition back to the PST, visit bbot.ca/pst-transition. !

Skilled Immigrants Give Burnaby-based Metro Labs a Competitive Advantage You’re hiring. Of course, you want the best fit possible. So, ideally, as a BC-based company, you want candidates with Canadian experience and fluent English. Right? Maybe not. Burnaby-based Metro Testing Laboratories is one company that has taken a very different approach— which has paid off handsomely for them in terms of highly successful recruitment and retention. Metro Testing Laboratories is a 205-employee firm

that provides inspection and testing for all phases of construction as well as in-house supplemental testing. They work with local contractors, engineering and architectural firms, as well as municipal and provincial government agencies. Metro Testing Laboratories doesn’t make Canadian experience mandatory for new hires. “We prefer to train them ourselves into our way of doing things,” says

Harry Watson, President of Vancouver’s Metro Testing Laboratories. Metro Testing Labs also has other techniques for recruiting skilled immigrants. “In our advertising we ask to have a second language. This prompts skilled immigrants to apply,” Harry explains. “We put on free training courses for the type of work that we do, and we also send the applicants out to shadow some of our employees. Then we will often offer them a job.” Harry notes that his approach of actively seeking out skilled immigrants for its workforce is unusual in his field, where he says most companies tend to be somewhat “tribal” in whom they hire. At Metro Testing Labs, however, the “tribe” is global. “To date we have brought people from 15 different cultures into the group—no small thing for a small company,” says Harry, who immigrated to Canada in the late 70’s and can count himself among Metro’s global tribe. Harry says the pay-offs are enormous. “Skilled immigrants have definitely contributed to the success of Metro, and they really do feel part of the company. I think they feel proud of the company.” Immigrant Employment Council of BC’s executive director, Kelly Pollack believes employers like Harry who have adjusted their hiring standards and recruitment techniques to include, rather than exclude, skilled immigrants from their talent pool, will have a significant competitive advantage. “As BC employers face growing skill shortages, what constitutes the “right fit” is undergoing a transformation,” says Kelly. Harry was featured in a new video (www.youtube.com/ watch?v=JOIcVdxNEd0) on the importance of integrating skilled immigrants into the BC labour force which was shown at the November 9, 2012 Burnaby Board of Trade luncheon with Minister Jason. Interested in learning how to better integrate skilled immigrants into your hiring practices? The New Canadian Assessment Resource jointly developed by IEC-BC and the BC Human Resources Management Association, helps employers better assess the potential value of skilled immigrants to their organizations. The Immigrant Employment Council of BC, an initiative of the Vancouver Foundation, stimulates the integration of skilled immigrant talent into the province’s workforce by fostering solutions, building connections and being a champion to help employers attract and retain skilled immigrant talent.

support from dedicated businesses, not just from Burnaby, but from all across the Lower Mainland. The other program we introduced last year was Access, our student career development program which has also passed all expectations so far in its initial year. Although we’re only halfway through this inaugural session, we have been receiving great feedback from both our young professionals and the Connectors who have been helping them to navigate the often tumultuous business landscape. We have over 60 participants in the program this year mostly from SFU, BCIT

and UBC, and we expect even more for the 2013/14 session, with applications already rolling in for the October intake. Of course, the BBOT also remains committed to improving its regular services and programs as well, and so we have been reaching out to our membership to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of Burnaby businesses. We recently sent out a comprehensive survey to all our contacts on every key aspect of BBOT services and operations. Results from the survey have verified that the main reasons for BBOT membership continue to be for networking and learning opportunities, for promoting

one’s business, and for giving back to the community. That is why we continuously work to create new and better events, optimized workshops and seminars, and thoughtful committee initiatives, so that our members can get the very best value out of their membership. In addition, as part of our mandate to facilitate business success through economic development, the Burnaby Board of Trade will continue to work with the City of Burnaby to help execute their economic development strategy, as well as the Burnaby Social Sustainability Strategy as part of our ongoing commitment to social development

for a stronger and more inclusive community. This year, we are excited to engage with the City in the development and execution of their new Environmental Sustainability Strategy as well. In the area of politics, our greater emphasis on connecting our members with elected officials from across the political spectrum has allowed us to ensure local businesses have the most up to date information on the issues that affect us all. Recently we presented our members with the opportunity for an exclusive reception with Federal Immigration and Citizenship Minister Jason Kenney, and we also

Finally the Burnaby Board of Trade will continue to offer all the same high quality services and events our members have

come to expect from us. From the Business over Breakfast networking events and the High Tea Dim Sums, to the Charity Golf Tournament and the Burnaby Business Excellence Awards, we are excited to create better value each and every year. Our membership is strong because we are united as a community.

BBOT helps entrepreneurs start new businesses

the pledge for a sustainable community

With over 400,000 self-employed individuals in the province, BC is the home of the entrepreneur. And to help the next batch of business owners get started, the Burnaby Board of Trade has made the process of starting a business easy with its Business Services Desk sponsored by Scotiabank. Run by knowledgeable BBOT staff, the Business Services Desk offers a simple and helpful way of navigating the business start-up process, including name approvals and business registrations. Name approvals, the first step in the new business process, determine if the prospective name for a new business is available for use. Once armed with a name, entrepreneurs can register with the provincial registry through the business registration service also offered. While getting assistance completing these necessary documents, individuals can also access valuable information on starting and succeeding in business courtesy of useful how-to guides provided complimentary by Scotiabank. From their Running Start for Business program to their StartRight Program for Newcomers, Scotiabank provides step-by-step guidance and advice for starting a business, while providing the financial services needed by a new business. The Business Services Desk is located in the Burnaby Board of Trade offices and is open during the BBOT’s regular office hours. In addition, it also offers document certification services for certificates of origin for export and travel visa applications. !

The Burnaby Board of Trade’s Pledge for a Sustainable Community launched in November 2012 and admittedly, we were a little nervous. With any new initiative it’s difficult to anticipate the response but we are thrilled to report that the business community has embraced the Pledge. Thanks to the businesses and organizations in Burnaby and Metro Vancouver, we have 54 Pledge Takers representing a broad range of businesses from corporate and SME’s to sole proprietor enterprises, with more joining each week. Here is a sampling of the many things businesses have pledged to do to reduce their environmental footprint:

GARDENING

Twigs stand up to winter’s wrath GREEN SCENE

T

Anne Marrison

hrough winter, flowers get battered down by winter storms and berries fall or are eaten by wildlife, but brightly coloured stems and contorted twigs resist anything nature hurls at them. Finding colour and twisty twigs together in one plant family is quite unusual. But it does happen in hybrids of the Corkscrew Willow (Colden Curls and Scarlet Curls). Both are easy to grow and if kept small, are quite spectacular in the garden, whether being lashed by rain or festooned with snow. They’re also great Christmas decorating material. It’s better to prevent these two willow hybrids from growing into large trees because the twisted twigs, whether golden or orange-red, are brightest when young. When they grow tree size, the twigs quickly become plain brown twisty branches bright only at the tips. Also willows are so fast growing that tree branches are soon quite out of reach. Pollarding (pruning all or most branches close

to the trunk) keeps brilliant, healthy new growth coming and keeps the tree within bounds. This should be done soon after the new year while buds are still dormant. Willows are much better neighbours if kept small. That’s because willows have weak, shallow roots, drop older branches and shed lots of twigs each winter. Acreage gardens are the place for large willow trees. In large gardens, people can enjoy the beauty of their twigs against the sky. Willows are also so greedy for water, they can turn marginal swamps into something one can walk on. Contorted Hazels (Corylus Contorta) are more widely planted than corkscrew willows and much more tightly twisty. In winter they are intricately beautiful especially since masses of little catkins begin forming in late November. It’s a slow starter, but ultimately needs considerable pruning to stay within its space. Artistic relatives and friends usually like receiving bits, plus pruned branches make fantastical prisons for leaning plants. In summer, Corkscrew Hazel is a nondescript mass of curly green leaves, but meanwhile it is making little nuts which attract blue flashes of Steller’s Jays in late August. Most are grafted and they do tend to sucker

when the rootstock is stimulated by too much pruning. All these suckers will be straight. If you can pull each sucker off early enough to tear off the growth bud in the root that will be the end of that particular sucker. It helps to use pliers and pull towards the tree. If you luck into an own-root Contorted Hazel, all the suckers will be corkscrews. This means you can prune until your heart’s content without ever having to deal with suckers Contorted hazel can be kept indefinitely in a container top-pruned and root-pruned every few years. Keeping it on pot feet is best because roots can easily make their way through drainage holes. I was in a Langley garden once and noticed an imposing row of very tall cotoneaster shrubs all in smallish pots and planted in a straight line unusually close together near the front door. They were a mass of pretty red berries but also view-blockers. It turned out they had begun life as seedlings one to a pot – time had moved on and so had the roots which had found their own escape routes. Now there was no moving them at all. Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her via amar rison@shaw.ca.

Ice dance central claims podium Tom Berridge sports editor

Burnaby ice dancers were the belle of the Canadian figure skating championship ball in Mississauga, Ont. last week. Following up on Danielle Wu and Spencer Soo’s near-record gold-medal win in the novice ice dance final to start the week, former Moscrop Secondary students, ZhaoKai Pang and Nicole Orford, both gained the podium in their respective junior and senior dance finals. That gave the B.C. Centre of Excellence ice dance coaching duo of Aaron Lowe and Megan Wing medals from six of their seven teams at this year’s nationals. Pang and partner Madeline Edwards, last year’s national novice champs, won a second straight Canadian championship gold medal, defeating short program leaders, Mackenzie Bent and Garrett MacKeen of Eastern Ontario, in the long free dance program. Pang, 17, and 16-year-old Edwards scored 86.24 in the fourminute free dance to overtake the first-round leaders with a 145.25 total score, nipping Bent and MacKeen by less than a point. “They had the skate of their lives,” said Lowe. “Maddie and ZhaoKai’s free dance was just at a much higher level.” The B.C. Centre of Excellencetrained skaters also beat Bent and MacKeen at the Skate Canada Challenge in Regina last month. With the gold medal, the local ice dance team earned a berth on Canada’s national team to the junior world championships to be held in Milan, Italy from Feb. 25 to March 3. Bent and MacKeen will also be participating. “Our goal was just to make the junior world team. We haven’t set

Gold again: ZhaoKai Pang of Burnaby and Madeline Edwards won the junior ice dance gold medal at the Canadian figure skating national championships in Mississauga, Ont. last week. our goals yet,” said Pang. “We want to skate faster and have more of a presence on the ice. We really want to look like we belong on a world stage.” With last year’s top five pairs from the worlds back again for

a second straight year, Lowe believes this season’s championships will be a reality check for his teenage team. Based on current scores, Edwards and Pang would need another personal best to crack the

top five, Lowe said. “We tell our skaters to be ready for your opportunities by doing your job,” he added. “All the top teams are super strong and fast. They have to really work on strength and speed because their performance level is world class.” Pang and Edwards’ final score would have placed them fifth overall in this season’s senior dance category. Caelen Dalmer of Burnaby and her partner Shane Firus, sixth at the Skate Canada Challenge, kept their third-place placement after the short program with a 76.53 free skate to finish with the bronze medal in the junior ice dance for B.C. But it was the free skate of Orford and Thomas Williams that surprised Lowe. Orford and Williams, fourth after the opening short skate, made up a five-point deficit after a slipup by the third-place couple of Alexandra Paul and Mitchell Islam of Ontario to take the third place medal by less than a point. “It was a huge shock,” Lowe said. “(Orford and Williams) skated clean and had a great skate. They took advantage of the opportunity when it came.” Orford and Williams’ thirdplace skate earned them a place on the Canadian team for the Four Continents championships in Osaka, Japan in less than two weeks. “Deep down inside, they always wanted this feeling, so now it’s come,” Lowe added. Orford and Williams scored 91.04 in the free dance to finish with a total score of 152.56. The pair placed sixth at both last year’s nationals and world junior championships. Skate Page 25

Bantam Bruins can’t solve St. Albert riddle The Burnaby Winter Club is still looking for its first John Reid memorial AAA bantam hockey tournament title in St. Albert, Alta. The BWC Bruins lost a quarter-final matchup 3-0 with eventual finalist Southside Athletic Club on Saturday. The Bruins then surrendered a 6-3 decision to the Lloydminster Heat in Sunday’s final placement game. In the game, Burnaby took an early 3-0 lead on first-period goals by Devan Purhar and Henry Rhyu, and an early second-period marker by Jake Kryski. But Lloydminster silenced the Bruins with five unanswered counters in the middle stanza, including a hat trick from Brayden Goulet. Goulet, who had just two goals in the Heat’s four earlier matchups, including a goal and one assist in Lloydminster’s 4-0 win over the North Shore Winter Club in pool play, was in on all six goals for the Alberta club. Goulet scored four times, including his third power-play goal of the game and the only tally of the final period. The winter club opened with a 7-1 win over the eventual third-place finishing Calgary Northstar Sabres on Jan. 17. Dante Fabbro led the way with a pair of goals. Jaeger White had a threepoint outing, including Burnaby’s 3-0 goal on a power play midway through the second period. The Bruins followed that up with a 4-2 victory over the Winnipeg Hawks. Jongmin Lee, Kyle Uy, White and Kryski, with the eventual game-winner, all scored for the winter club. Tyler Shugrue kicked out 27 shots on goal. Burnaby also drew 1-1 with the Sherwood Park Flyers in its second game on Friday. North Shore Winter Club beat Southside 3-2 in the championship final. Burnaby Winter Club was a John Reid tournament finalist in 2010, 2003 and 1991.

the Clan, scoring 16 points and adding 10 assists. Raincock-Ekunwe recorded her 51st career double with 11 points and 10 boards, all coming in the first half of play. Carla Wyman also scored in double figures, with 10 points. “I think it’s key to gain our confidence back after transitioning from having a loss and dealing with the mistakes (of last week),” said Collins in an SFU press release. “We came out and showed we can be a confident team that plays together. Everyone contributed and it feels really good to come out in the second half of the season like that.” Trailing by a single point with less than 10 minutes left in the first half, SFU quieted Montana State with a 10-0 run. The Clan carried that momentum into the second half, outscoring the visitors 45-26 in the second half.

1010 MYDSKE, Catherine (Kay) Jun 11, 1926 - Jan 17, 2013 Kay was granted her angel wings on January 17th, 2013. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends. Kay touched the lives of everyone she met and was considered a grandma to all, not just to those related to her. Born in Nanaimo, BC, Kay is survived by siblings, George, Jerry, Lucille, and her twin sister Ada. Kay moved to Vancouver where she worked as a riveter in a North Vancouver shipyard during the war effort of the 1940s, before meeting Hans - her loving husband of almost 62 years - and starting her family. She is dearly missed by children David (Michelle), Marlene, Sandra (David), Phillip (Caroline), Grant, Kathryn (Lorne), and Chris (Judy). Granny Kay will always remain in the hearts of her 19 grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. Kay had a real zest for life. She loved socializing and had a genuine interest in learning about others. Everyone who met Kay loved her. She had a positive, empathetic spirit that people were drawn to. A true ’girly’ girl, she had a fondness for leopard print, the colour pink and glitzy jewellery. Her most prized possession was her family, who she loved, cared for, and taught many valuable life lessons. A special thanks to Dr. Ken Miki for providing our mother and grandma with care over the years. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, January 26th, at 1pm, at Connaught Heights Assembly (2201 - 8th Avenue, New Westminster). Please feel free to wear pink, leopard print, or a brooch, in honour of Kay. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Union Gospel Mission.
