Candidate under fire for resumé Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The Liberals are raising questions about the professional credentials of Jane Shin, the NDP candidate for Burnaby-Lougheed. The B.C. Liberal Party has been keeping a close eye on Shin, monitoring how her online biographies have been changing and inquiring about her background as a physician. “Over the past several days, a number of biographies of NDP candidate Jane Shin have been significantly altered, calling into question whether or not she has been truthful about her education and work experience,” reads a post on the B.C. Liberal Party website. The Liberals started monitoring Shin’s online information and biographies after the party received an

Pipeline galvanizes crowd at all-candidates meet Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Nearly 100 Burnaby residents came out on a rainy Sunday evening to hear Burnaby North candidates speak about the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion project, among other things. Kinder Morgan wants to twin the Trans Mountain line, which runs oil – as well as diluted bitumen – from Alberta to the West Coast and a terminal in Burnaby.

The all-candidates meeting was put on by the Capitol Hill Community Hall Association, the Civic Association of Iranian Canadians and BROKE – Burnaby Residents Opposing Kinder Morgan Expansion. The format included four written questions from the audience and six oral questions. The first question was on whether candidates were aware of the potential health effects of a diluted bitumen spill. Conservative Party of B.C. candidate Wayne Marklund said he didn’t know

what the health effects might be but added his party is in favour of the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion project. “I’m an open-minded person,” he said. “I know my party believes in pipelines and believes in good paying jobs for British Columbians.” But Marklund added he personally believes the environment should come first and all safety standards need to be looked into. Green Party of B.C. candidate Carrie

McLaren said she also wasn’t aware of the effects, but did a quick Wikipedia check at the meeting. “I already figured out it’s oil and it’s also diluted with other chemicals, so it’s obviously partially carcinogenic, and there are other effects we don’t know of fully because it hasn’t been fully researched,” she said. “Obviously, our stance is we don’t want the expansion of any more of the pipelines Pipeline Page 8

ELECTION 2013: FOCUS ON THE BURNABY-LOUGHEED RIDING, BY JENNIFER MOREAU, REPORTER

The personal and political: Candidates revealed

Jane Shin, NDP

Ken Kramer, Liberal

Christine Clarke, Conservative

Darwin Burns, Green

Question: How long have you lived in Burnaby? Answer: I’ve been a proud Burnaby resident for two years now. … I also have a small business, a specialized fish and tackle store, that I help oversee. I also work in the community at BCIT, where I formerly served as the head of the department for health-care management program. Q: What makes you uniquely qualified to represent this riding? A: Burnaby-Lougheed is a very diverse community. As an educator, as an immigrant, as a young professional, and of course, as a entrepreneur, I do believe that I have a broad set of experiences that can resonate with the constituents that are in Burnaby-Lougheed and hopefully that will make me be an effective listener and advocate for the community in the legislature. Q: What would be your personal priority if elected as an MLA? A: If I have to choose four top concerns that I hear at the doorstep, as well as those that are personal to me, (they) would be keeping our education accessible for everyone, and of course I would like to see improvements in health care. We do have a great system, but the system is struggling, so we want to make sure we revitalize it. I also want to act on our commitment to the environment and continue to support the small businesses that are the backbone of our economy, and foster creative entrepreneurship. Q: What accomplishments in your life are you most proud of? A: If I have to choose one, it’ll be my family, definitely. The fact that we had the courage to uproot ourselves from our home country, which is South Korea, and make a new life here in B.C. It’s beautiful province. And we had to overcome the language barrier, the

Question: Can you tell me a little bit about yourself? Answer: I’m a lawyer and have owned and operated a small, boutique law practice in downtown Vancouver focusing predominantly on estates and trust law. … I’m very active in the community with a number of initiatives, predominantly in the disability community, but also with other communities and charities. Q: How long have you lived in Burnaby? A: I am coming up to my eighth year in Burnaby. Q: Why do you think you are uniquely qualified to represent this riding? I think I can take that success I’ve accomplished, not only in my practice, but in my career, in my community and the initiatives I’ve undertaken over the years, and apply that skill set to getting results, and really that’s why I’m here today to try to really make a difference. Q: What would be your personal priority if elected as an MLA? A: What I want is fine, but it’s what everybody in this community wants. And clearly we want jobs, we want a good economy, we want good health care, and there are many aspects to that. What’s important to the residents of Burnaby-Lougheed is what’s important to me. Q: What accomplishment in your life are you most proud of? A: Over the last few years, trying to raise the dollar amount (for home support) that would be available to individuals with disabilities, and I undertook a collaboration with government, stakeholders, and community to work out a solution, and that solution was effectively a $19-million increase over three years, so that’s a nice highlight; and for me the benefit for all this is there are people out there in the province right now who are able to live better lives. Q: Who is your role model?

Question: Can you tell me a little bit about yourself? Answer: I live in Port Moody as many people know, but I’ve been in British Columbia all my life. I’m a mother of three, I have a varied career, I’ve been an entrepreneur, I’ve worked for small business, I’ve worked for large corporations. Q: You mentioned you’re a Port Moody resident. What made you decide to run in Burnaby? A: Burnaby needed some strong B.C. Conservative candidates to come forward and represent them, and I think every British Columbian needs a representative in Victoria. Q: Why makes you uniquely qualified to represent this riding? A: I don’t know that anybody’s uniquely qualified to represent the riding, I believe that my varied business experience gives me a good perspective on what’s important to our employers in the province. ... I think I understand some of the issues that are in Burnaby. The homeless issue is a huge one. This is not a place people would expect to have a homeless problem, but we do, and it needs serious attention from the provincial government. Q: What would be your personal priority if elected as an MLA? A: I believe the economy is vital. People want to restore our social services. Well, you can’t restore your social services unless you have tax dollars, and you don’t have tax dollars unless people are working, so the economy has to be the first priority. But after that, our single biggest budget item is health care. It’s crucial that we get a new model for health care. Q: What accomplishment in your life are you most proud of? A: I actually just got a letter this morning from the Canadian Dermatology Association

Question: Can you tell me a little bit about yourself? Answer: I’m originally from Northern Ontario, … upon my teens, I ended up moving down to Ottawa, where I got to witness political action firsthand. Following university, at Ottawa U, I ended up going to China. My studies were political science with an Asian influence, so I wanted to study first hand; I wanted to witness what life was like in Asia. Q: How long have you lived in Burnaby? A: Just two years, I’ve been here two years, almost to the day. Q: Why do you think you are uniquely qualified to represent this riding? A: Particularly because I live here. I’m right on the mountain, and I work in the same riding as well. I do most of my personal day-to-day business within the local riding. I’m very familiar with local businesses, with my neighbours, and I have a good connection to a lot of the different ethnic groups, a lot of the different backgrounds of people who live in the area. Q: What would be your personal priority if elected as an MLA? A: To re-establish confidence in the political system with the voters, with the constituents. Right now, I feel people have been left disenfranchised; they’ve come under the impression that we don’t represent them anymore. … The Green party doesn’t have a whip system. We’re here to represent the voters, and I want them to hold us accountable. … The constituent comes first – that is democracy. Q: What accomplishment in your life are you most proud of? A: Simply the ability to retain optimism and happiness, given the life I’ve been served. … I did go through a lot of hardships. I lost my mother. My father suffered a massive head injury,

anonymous suggestion to look into her background. According to an information package the Liberals put together, Shin’s biography has been changing recently. On April 18, her online NDP bio stated that she received her medical doctorate in 2007, but it doesn’t state where the degree came from, only that she trained at a U.S. hospital, the University of Edinburgh and Dalhousie University in Halifax. Her BCIT bio also appears to have changed, originally stating that she had diverse skills from her “work as a physician,” which was later changed to “her medical training.” The Liberals are also raising questions about which credential or title she’s using: MD or Dr.? When Shin’s candidacy was announced in October 2012, the NDP press release stated she was a “physician by training” and an instructor at Vancouver Community College. Shin has told the NOW that she did not practice as a physician, but she worked at BCIT and was the former department head for the health care management program. In a profile that ran in the IndoCanadian Voice, another example the Liberals cited, Shin describes herself as a “trained medical doctor.” The NOW emailed and phoned Shin for comment but received a call from an NDP communications staffer instead, who wished to speak only on background and forwarded an email to the NOW. According to the NDP, Shin received her doctor of medicine at Spartan Health

Sciences University (in St. Lucia, in the Caribbean), an institution recognized by the Medical Council of Canada. Shin never completed her residency, but she did her clinical rotations at a variety of hospitals in the United Kingdom and in Chicago. She moved to Vancouver and worked as an instructor at Vancouver Community College and BCIT. According to the unnamed spokesperson, once media calls started coming in asking about Shin’s bio, the party looked into her online information and made some minor edits to make sure everything was consistent. Shin’s campaign manager, Sage Aaron, sent an emailed statement to the NOW on Shin’s behalf. “I try not to pay attention to these attacks, but obviously it doesn’t feel good to have your background unfairly questioned,” the statement reads. “I worked very hard to earn my doctor of medicine degree, and I’m proud of my medical education and my decision to follow my passion for teaching.” When asked to comment, Liberal candidate Ken Kramer, Shin’s competition in the Burnaby-Lougheed riding, said he’s more interested in reaching out to voters than raising questions about other candidates. “I’m trying to stay away from what others are doing,” Kramer said. “My number 1 responsibility is to make sure I’m out there and meeting people right now and telling them about the positives I’ve accomplished in my career and how I’m going to take that positive and translate that in Victoria.”

Candidates discuss homelessness Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The Burnaby Task Force on Homelessness has surveyed Burnaby’s provincial candidates to see what they would do to help local people living on the streets. The task force posed five questions to Burnaby candidates of all four parties, asking what they would do to address homelessness and ensure short-term/transitional housing, affordable housing, and supported housing in Burnaby specifically. “Housing and services very much needs to be part of an election issue, and we’re hoping having the questionnaires and responses will help,” said task force spokesperson Wanda Mulholland. “That’s our goal.” Homelessness has always been a hotly debated issue in Burnaby. The city has no permanent, yearround, homeless shelter, in part due to Mayor Derek Corrigan’s insistence that housing is not a municipal responsibility. Burnaby, being a largely NDP-run town, has butt heads with the Liberal government over housing, each accusing the other of being uncooperative. Mulholland was reticent to offer any commentary on which party gave the best responses to meet the needs of Burnaby’s homeless population. “The fact that all parties responded to the questionnaire in a timely manner shows they are all taking this issue very seriously,” she said. “The task force is non-partisan and is willing to work with any and all

of them.” In the survey responses, the Greens said they want government to buy housing and help non-profits buy housing, and that they will bring in a provincial housing plan, while advocating for a national one as well. The Liberals mostly pointed to what they have done in the past, stating that they’ve been working hard to end homelessness, while citing figures that show Vancouver’s homeless population has declined from 811 to 154, while the number of people in shelters has increased. But the Liberals also seem to be shifting the focus to Burnaby with their collective response. “We need cooperation and commitment from the City of Burnaby. We would encourage Burnaby voters and members of the Burnaby Task Force on Homelessness to call the City of Burnaby to work with the provincial government to ensure that short-term housing is available for those who need it most,” their reply states. “We encourage the task force and Burnaby voters to call on the city to partner with the province and provide city-owned land for supportive housing projects, as the eight other municipalities have done.” If elected, the Liberals would continue funding homeless outreach programs across B.C. The Liberals also stated that since 2001, they have added 21,000 new units of affordable housing across B.C., and more than 18,000 are complete, while the remaining are “in development or under construction.”

They plan to build 2,200 new units of supportive housing in B.C. The collective response from Burnaby’s NDP candidates stated the party would also build “up to” 1,500 units of affordable, non-profit, cooperative and rental housing for low- and moderate-income families, seniors and individuals each year. (That’s 700 fewer units than what the Liberals are promising, but the NDP would build up to 1,500 every year. Neither stated how many of those units would be in Burnaby, if any.) The NDP stated they would work with the City of Burnaby on a “variety of housing solutions, as well as transitional housing to address the needs of the homeless.” As for the task force’s question on the growing number of citizens dealing with homelessness, the NDP reiterated the 1,500 units they are promising. B.C. Conservative candidate Wayne Marklund replied to the survey, stating that “everyone should be treated with respect and dignity.” “There are a few short-term shelters in Burnaby. We must work with B.C. Housing and the City of Burnaby to ensure that a permanent shelter is available for everyone that is in need,” he said. “It is quite obvious we need to get B.C. Housing, the City of Burnaby and the provincial government to sit down and develop a program that would begin to meet the growing needs of the homeless community in Burnaby.” To read the full responses to the task force’s survey, go to www. burnabyhomelesstaskforce.org.

Well, we’re sorry to say, but some of this stuff does matter. And, perhaps, more importantly how candidates respond to it resurfacing during political campaigns, matters greatly. Candidates who try to dodge questions on former potentially questionable behaviour, in our opinion, don’t have what it takes to weather future political storms. Voters deserve human beings-cum-politicians who admit their mistakes, learn from their mistakes – and don’t try to rewrite history. There is no shortage of examples in B.C. politics

where elected officials have screwed up, and voters have forgiven them if they fess up and promise not to do it again (Gordon Campbell’s drunk driving comes to mind). But potential political leaders who seem unaware, or in denial, of their own dishonesty or flaws are doomed to repeat them – often at the expense of good government. We’re not expecting only paragons of virtue to represent us – but we rightly hope for an honest conversation with a lot less hide-and-seek.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Instant gratification not worth it Dear Editor:

Re: Debt and tuition fees fuel ‘Rock the Boat,’ Burnaby NOW, April 26. The “Rock the Vote” article by Niki Hope caught my attention. Though of concern to one group, it is a bit too one-sided. I envy no one, 24 years young, having to live with a student loan of $27,000. It is even more tragic that many students discover too late that their skills of choice do not lead to employment. On the other hand, Jill Griffin is 24 years old and still believes politicians should take care of her problems? As a matter of fact, she feels entitled to have

me – the taxpayer – finance her future. We have already borrowed money from my grandchildren to pay 77 cents on the dollar to finance the real cost of her education. Are we to borrow more from her grandchildren? What happened to common sense? Personally, I am actually OK with paying a larger percentage of the cost of education for those in the top 10 or 20 per cent of students, provided they fill locally available jobs. I would also like to see the 213,000 jobs we gave last year to temporary foreign workers go to homegrown talent. I also gather Ms. Griffin wants her fellow students to vote for the political party who makes the wildest promises to her generation. Instant

gratification. Right now! Her choice of party can be no other but the one that also promises another group of voters to freeze all development of our natural resources, the very source of most of B.C.’s taxes. These “others” are (mistakenly) convinced the planet is slipping off the back of the turtle and only instant, very expensive interference will save us all. Fortunately, the sun will still rise on May 15 and our folly-in-the-making will not destroy the planet, or even Canada. However, we won’t recognize my beloved province by the time this is all over. Sorry, Ms. Griffin, you may think your problems are big and need fixing (by others); you ain’t seen nothin’ yet! Ziggy Eckardt, Burnaby

City council does it again Dear Editor:

Another municipal budget has come to order, and once again the city has balanced the budget in the face of increasing costs being downloaded from the provincial and federal governments. In spite of this lack of support, Burnaby council – all members of the Burnaby Citizens Association – has made sure critical services are funded while investing in the future of the city. More importantly, Burnaby had money allocated for important capital investments, the same investments that made Maclean’s magazine rank Burnaby as the best-run city in Canada in 2009. These investments don’t just make the city run more efficiently, they provide the leisure

activities that make Burnaby such an attractive place to live. This is the municipal government we deserve; a government that is fiscally prudent and still has the willingness to put forward money to invest in our social needs and the future. Trevor Ritchie, Burnaby

Clarifying research intent

Dear Editor:

Re: Lives of middle school students, Burnaby NOW, April 26. I am the co-chair of the Burnaby School Age Initiative, a consortium of community organizations and service providers that work with, and support children in the middle years in Burnaby. As per the article written by reporter, Marelle Reid, I would just like to clarify the intent of the MDI middle years research. This research focuses on a developmental assets/strengths-based approach, emphasizing protective factors that support and optimize development. It will provide us with the ability to review social recreational opportunities that are available to children in Burnaby, before and after school hours – and where there might be gaps in this support. I am appreciative of our partnership with the Burnaby School District, which has been very supportive of this community initiative. I encourage anyone interested in learning more about this research and opportunities that support children in the middle years to come to the presentation of the findings on May 7 at the Shadbolt. Antonia Beck, executive director, South Burnaby Neighbourhood House

Liberals: Future strategy continued from page 6

There remains an uneasy tension between Clark and many of her colleagues (only one MLA endorsed her leadership campaign) and a number are already planning a strategy to deal with rebuilding the party under someone else’s leadership, should it go down to defeat on May 14th. ◆ I predicted in this space some time ago that one of B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins’ biggest challenges would be to find credible candidates for his party and not people who would prove to be embarrassing to the party. Well, he’s had to dump four candidates

for so-called “bozo eruptions,” mostly involving their use of offensive language in the campaign. To say this has been a blow to the party’s credibility is an understatement, but given the resentment to the B.C. Liberals that seems entrenched in parts of the electorate, that credibility hit may not be enough to seriously erode the modest rise in the B.C. Conservatives’ standing in the polls. ◆ Has Green party leader Jane Sterk undergone media training or something? Her television and radio appearances seem more polished (there was a consensus among many commentators that Sterk

stood head and shoulders above the other leaders in the radio debate) than in 2009. We’ll see if this pays off at the ballot box. ◆ Now that Christy Clark cannot take action against any of her party’s candidates if they choose to stray from her message and run their own campaigns (the deadline for refusing to sign their nomination papers passed last week) it will be interesting to see if any do just that. Cabinet minister Dr. Moira Stilwell, for example, has considerable credibility when it comes to health policy and so she’s announced her own policies on that front. We’ll see if others follow suit.

Two city Conservatives ‘unaffiliated’ due to ‘glitch’ staff reporter

Two B.C. Conservative candidates running in Burnaby – Christine Clarke in the Burnaby-Lougheed riding and Wayne Marklund in the Burnaby-North riding – will be on the ballot on May 14, but there will be a blank space where their party name would normally be. The two candidates are among 11 unaffiliated candidates running in the election. Unaffiliated candidates are different from independents, according to Don Main, spokesperson for Elections B.C. “They are not affiliat-

ed,” Main said. “What that means is, there’s a difference from candidates who run as independents, who sign a solemn declaration that they are independent of any political party, whereas an unaffiliated candidate would have nothing under their name on the ballot but can be affiliated with a registered or even an unregistered party. In this instance, they still could have Conservative on their campaign signage.” As the deadline for filing registered political party endorsement forms has passed, there is no way for the candidates to have the party name added to the ballot at this point, he

added. Four current B.C. Conservative candidates were listed as unaffiliated in the candidates’ list released by Elections B.C. on Saturday; the other two are Bill Clarke, a former MP running in VancouverQuilchena, and Manuel (Mike) Pratas, who is running in Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows. Jaclyn Laic, the public relations representative for the B.C. Conservatives, said there was some kind of glitch with the paperwork but was not sure what the issue was, adding the party’s campaign manager, Jeff Bridge, would have more details.

She confirmed the candidates are running as Conservatives. “Yes, they are in fact B.C. Conservative candidates,” she said, adding they will be Conservative MLAs if elected. Bridge responded to the NOW via email, saying the party was still looking into how the issue would be handled. “They are Conservative candidates and important members of our team. Nothing will change,” he wrote. “There will be no difference how they are treated, period.” In addition, three B.C. Conservative candidates who were recently fired

from the party are also running as unaffiliated candidates: Mischa Popoff for Boundary-Similkameen, Ian Tootill for Vancouver-False Creek, and Ron Herbert for Vancouver-West End. One B.C. NDP candidate who was also fired is listed as unaffiliated, as well – Dayleen Van Ryswyk, in the Kelowna-Mission riding. Jeff Sprague, the former

B.C. Conservative candidate for North VancouverLonsdale, also let go by the party, was not on the list of candidates. Allan John Molyneaux was listed as the B.C. Conservative candidate for that riding. The other unaffiliated candidates on the list are John Ford for KamloopsNorth Thompson, Matt William Begley for SurreyCloverdale and Ali Zaidi for Surrey-Panorama.

Bby-North candidate clams up on charge Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Burnaby-North Conservative Party of B.C. candidate Wayne Marklund was charged with impaired driving in North Vancouver in July 2003, but was found not guilty. He was, however, found guilty of a lesser charge; driving a motor vehicle without due care and attention. “That charge was dropped, there was no evidence,” Marklund said

on Monday morning, regarding the charge of driving while impaired. He refused to answer any further questions regarding the lesser charge or the situation in general. This is the first time Marklund, a Port Coquitlam resident who owns Candu Glass Ltd. in Burnaby, has run for office. The Conservative Party of B.C. did not respond to requests for comment from the NOW. Since the B.C. Conservatives began

campaigning, four candidates have been let go: Mischa Popoff, the candidate for Boundary-Similkameen; Ian Tootill, the candidate for VancouverFalse Creek; and Jeff Sprague, the candidate for North VancouverLonsdale. On Sunday, Ron Herbert, the Conservative candidate for the Vancouver-West End riding, was also removed, and the party’s head of candidate scrutiny stepped down, according to The Province.

Excalibur candidate on ballot for Bby-Edmonds Stefania Seccia staff reporter

Although there is no B.C. Conservative Party member running in the BurnabyEdmonds riding this election, there’s still a fourth candidate, thanks to the B.C. Excalibur Party. Nicholas Edward D’Amico is the candidate running for the newly founded the B.C. Excalibur Party in Burnaby-Edmonds. “What I have to offer is life experience and ambition,” D’Amico said in an email interview. “I feel I am fit to run … because I am an everyday person who works like everyone else.” D’Amico works as a forklift operator at North American Pipe and Steel and has experience in construction and trades work. “I am passionate most about the education system, but that doesn’t mean I forget and ignore other issues,” he said. “The environment, economy and society as a whole is being jeopardized by the people in power today, and all we are

guaranteed by them for the future is more broken promises.” The party was founded this year, and its platform promises include cutting the PST by two per cent over the next four years; creating rail transit between Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack and Hope; removing incineration as a means to deal with waste; and putting banning fish farming, among others. The party leader is Michael Halliday, who has owned various small businesses – including a medieval restaurant and a 3,000 square foot historically themed store, according to his online profile. He is running in the Chilliwack riding. There are six candidates running for the party in Abbotsford-Mission, Abbotsford-West, AbbotsfordSouth, Richmond-East, Chilliwack and Burnaby-Edmonds. Halliday could not immediately be reached by the Burnaby NOW for comment. For more information, visit www.bce xcaliburparty.com.

FOR THE RECORD

Chevron spokesman: Seep is not migrating offsite

In an April 24 article on the ongoing Chevron refinery seep, the NOW reported that Chevron spokesperson Ray Lord “said it was not a leak but a seepage from ‘historic accumulation of subsurface contamination’ at the refinery, which is now migrating offsite.” Lord did not state that the material is now migrating offsite. According to Chevron, evidence indicates

the seep is no longer migrating offsite – it’s being contained by a hydraulic barrier along the refinery’s perimeter. “The organo-clay system at the foreshore is absorbing any material that had already migrated off of our site prior to the hydraulic barrier along the perimeter being installed,” Lord said. The NOW regrets the error.

City firefighter prepares for next leg of journey Rudy Pospisil excited to ride through bikefriendly Europe Cayley Dobie staff reporter

It’s been less than a year since Rudy Pospisil returned from his 9,600 km cycling journey and already he’s preparing for his next trip – this time heading across the Atlantic to bike his way through Europe. “I’ll start in Portugal,” he said. “And from there I’ll follow – what’s actually a pilgrimage trail – for 800 km through Portugal and Spain.” Pospisil’s goal is to bike around the world, raising awareness and funds for cancer research. He spent last fall riding from Vancouver, down the West Coast to California and then east to the Atlantic. Because he’s only able to do the rides during his vacation time – he is a captain for the Burnaby fire department - it takes a lot of determination to stay in shape while he’s at home in Burnaby. “I just cycle around the city. I cycle around Vancouver and all the bike routes in Burnaby and I’ll do bike rides up to Whistler,” he said. And when he’s not out riding his bike – which is rare, Pospisil said he hasn’t driven his car to work in more than a decade – he’s at the gym. He’s there so much that the folks at Steve Nash Fitness World started getting involved in his cause. “They’ve been really supportive of my rides ... and kind of taken me on as a sponsor,” he said. Even with sponsorship and

Cycling the world: Rudy Pospisil lifts his bike in the air after crossing the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, during last year’s leg of his cycling journey. Pospisil is headed to Europe this month for the second leg of his journey to raise awareness and funds for cancer research. fundraising, the rides are very expensive, but Pospisil said he doesn’t care, it’s all about getting people involved in the fight against cancer. During his ride along the Mexican and American border, people’s reaction to him and his cause were mixed. Pospisil said that while some people were excited to learn about his cause,

others were more hostile, especially in Texas, where he was run off the road a couple of times. But he expects his European journey, which kicks off May 3, will be a more positive experience. “Europe is so big into biking, it’s so welcomed there that I’m really looking forward to (it),” he said.

From Portugal he’ll continue into Spain and then make his way north to Switzerland. “It’s really cool because the mayor of Zurich is going to come and meet this guy from Burnaby,” he said. Pospisil, a cancer survivor himself, has raised close to $20,000 for cancer research and he hopes to reach $50,000 by the end of his global journey.

The European leg is scheduled to finish in Istanbul at the end of June. After that, he’ll return to work in Burnaby and save up more holiday time in order to return to Asia to continue his journey. For more information on Pospisil’s ride, or to make a donation, visit www.firefightercycle. com.

Community makes up for toy thieves Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Two Burnaby child-care centres for children with special needs have been inundated with donations, following a recent theft of toys reported in the Burnaby NOW. “We have gotten a number of donations from people,” said Carol Broomhall, spokesperson for the Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion. “With this wonderful community response, the kids know there are some bad people in the world, but there are more good people.” BACI runs various child-care centres in Burnaby for children with and without special needs, two of which were recently robbed of their toys. In all, roughly $600 worth of toys was stolen. Variety Hotelier House Children’s Centre in the Royal Oak area was hit the hardest, with all of their metal Tonka trucks taken. BACI is a nonprofit organization that receives little gov-

ernment funding, and the toys and playtime are important for the children’s emotional, physical and social development, Broomhall explained. Once the story ran in the Burnaby NOW on April 17, BACI started receiving calls for donations. Global TV also picked up the story, and the children spoke of how “a stranger” had taken the toys, without asking to borrow them. Even more donations came in once the TV segment aired. “They’ve been able to fully restock the toys that were stolen from that centre and have had other donations that have supported the toys stolen at the other centre as well,” Broomhall said. One family donated eight or nine of the same type of metal Tonka trucks that were stolen and also threw in a wagon. There have also been donations of books and money. “It has been a really lovely process. The children have not only had all of the toys

replaced that were missing, but even more to support them in their play and their development,” Broomhall said. Lesley Cannon, supervisor at the Variety centre, said the children were very happy. “Every day they come in, we’re saying there’s something new, so they’ve been very happy. Our toy shelf is overflowing. It’s been amazing,” she said. “I just want to say thank you very much to the public that has donated to us. It’s been heartwarming.” According to Cannon, one of the children brought his own truck from home to their regular show-and-tell session to donate to the centre following the theft. “One particular child fetched in a Tonka truck, and he said, ‘I’m going to leave it here so we can play with it in the sandbox and we can share together,’” Cannon said. “When he said this in front of all the children, we’re like, ‘Oh my goodness, I think we need Kleenex,” she added, laughing.

Serious Protection for your Deck & Siding

What Makes SharkSkin® Deck & Siding Stain So Tough?

A shark’s skin is made of a matrix of tiny, tooth-like scales that act as armour and provide the shark with the lowest friction so it can glide through the water with the highest efficiency. As an inspiration for the creation of the ‘ultimate’ in deck stains, Cloverdale Paint looked to this skin structure to develop its unique SharkSkin® formula, which cross-links a 100% Acrylic Resin providing protection from weather and UV rays, with Urethane for toughness and water-resistance, and the wood-friendly characteristics of Linseed Oil that penetrates and ‘anchors’ the stain into the pores of the wood. SharkSkin® is available exclusively at any Cloverdale Paint Store across Canada and at participating Authorized Dealers.

Hats Off to our volunteers By Sajeda Virji The Heights Contributor

It’s hard to believe it’s that time of the year again. We’re busy planning Burnaby’s biggest and favourite festival for Saturday, June 1. We’re very excited about this year’s theme – The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party – and encourage everyone to wear fun and unique hats to the street party. This year the party will kick off with a kids fun run at 9:30 a.m., and the celebrations will continue until 4 p.m., which means you’ll have one extra hour to check out all the sights, sounds and flavours of this special day. An event like Hats Off Day requires a large group of volunteers, and we need your help. We have a full roster of special Hats Off Day events and our volunteers are what make it all possible. Their tireless efforts towards our various initiatives are much appreciated, and we admire their dedication and support. Whether you are a youth, a senior, or someone in between, there are a variety of activities that you can help out with, whatever your skill set may be. As always, we work towards expanding our team of barricade volunteers. They play an integral role in ensuring the safety of the event. If you are 19 years of age or older,

we invite you to become a part of this team whose responsibility includes providing traffic control support. There are two shift options. Bring a friend, too. Work place volunteer teams are also invited, so spread the word. Training will be provided. If you would like to register for this or any other position, please send our volunteer organizing committee an email at hats.off.volunteers@gmail.com. Every year, we also have a group of dedicated high school students who help out with various duties throughout the day. Our youth volunteers interact with Hats Off Day attendees in different ways, such as handing out balloons and event programs. It is a fun way of getting involved with a special community event. Again, there are two shift options and training will be provided. We also require general Hats Off Day volunteers. Responsibilities vary, so if you are interested, please send us a quick note with what you would be interested in helping out with, and we will find you a role. If you are interested in being a youth or general event volunteer, please send us an email at volunteer@burnabyheights.com – we would love to hear from you. Thank you! Sajeda Virji is the marketing and events coordinator at the Heights Merchants Association.

How to be a barricade volunteer By Janaya Fuller-Evans The Heights Reporter

Shauna Pratt is the volunteer organizer for the Hats Off Day parade. She is a Scientology volunteer minister and has volunteered with the events since 2006. Recently, Pratt took part in a question-andanswer session with the Burnaby NOW to share her perspective on why volunteering is important, and what the Heights Merchants Association needs in terms of volunteers for the annual Hats Off Day celebration, which takes place on June 1. Question: When did you start volunteering and what made you decide to do it?

Answer: I’ve been volunteering since I was a Girl Guide in the dark ages of the 1960s! Even then I could see that helping others made life more interesting and more fun. It was the best feeling to know you had helped someone. The motto of our Scientology Volunteer Ministers is “Something CAN be done about it.” – and that inspires me to help whenever and wherever I can. Q: When did you begin volunteering with Hats Off Day, and what has your experience been thus far? A: Our disaster response team met with Burnaby city officials in 2006 to find out what they needed help with in the community and the answer was

– barricades at community events. The training in communication and organization that we had, and the fact that most of our volunteers are over 18 years of age, made this a good fit for us. I personally find Hats Off to be one of the best-organized and most fun local events to be involved in. The organizing committee is very dedicated and the Heights merchants and the Heights Merchants Association staff have made this the biggest, most vibrant family event in the Lower Mainland. Standing at a barricade may not sound like a lot of fun, but you are making it safe for people to have fun and enjoy the Auxiliary constables and volunteers are getting ready for the parade and festival. You are also a bit annual Hats Off Day parade. PHOTO: LARRY WRIGHT Continued on page 22 ...

How to help

... Continued from page 21

of a parade ambassador – helping people who are confused by the road closures. Q: What do volunteers do to get Hats Off Day up and running? What’s involved? A: Wow, that’s a big question – the first group of volunteers that makes it happen is the organizing committee – this is people from the community who meet with the staff of the Heights Merchants Association throughout the year to make sure all aspects of Hats Off Day go off without a hitch. Once the plan and theme are in place, committee members form sub committees to organize sponsorships, the parade itself, the entertainment, the traffic and safety aspects, volunteers, displays and everything that makes Hats Off Day so special. It is all kept rolling by the wonderful Heights

Merchants Association staff. Q: What kind of volunteers take part and what are their roles? A: There are several categories of volunteers – youth volunteers are very important. For traffic and safety, we have adult volunteers to man the barricades in shifts from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and they work side by side with RCMP auxiliary constables. The RCMP auxiliaries are specially trained, unarmed, uniformed RCMP volunteers who participate in community events and programs. A barricade volunteer – and we need about 120 of them – is positioned at each intersection to ensure no vehicles get onto Hastings Street between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on June 1st. The city engineering department organizes the whole road closure and the RCMP is on hand to control major intersections, while volunteers man the 30 to 40 key spots

along the route. The reason we need so many barricade volunteers is so they are twinned up and so each volunteer can do a four-or five-hour shift, rather than an eighthour shift. Q: Why are you looking for volunteers for this event? A: Many of our barricade volunteers, including the Scientology volunteer ministers and teams from Crime Watch and Royal City Skaters, have been manning the barricades every year, so they know exactly what to do, but we really want to involve adult volunteers from the community, too. This allows us to expand the ranks of volunteers and ensure that they get to spend some time AT Hats Off Day enjoying the festivities. Q: What do you need them to do, and what is the time commitment? A: Ideally a barricade volunteer can

spend the whole day at Hats Off Day. When we know we have enough volunteers the shift for each person can be reduced. Afternoon volunteers are especially needed, so anyone who is over 18 and willing to help from noon to 4 p.m. will be trained to help on the barricades. Q: What do volunteers get out of giving their time? A: It may sound corny but our barricade volunteers just like to help. Of course, the event sponsors provide lunches and water and a volunteer appreciation event is held after Hats Off Day. High school volunteers receive a letter to document their contributions and our barricade volunteers get the satisfaction of knowing they took responsibility for their zone and kept it safe. To volunteer for Hats Off Day, contact the Heights Merchants Association by email at info@burnabyheights.com.

Try cheap, easy ignition fix before costly one CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: I have a 2001 Dodge Neon with more than 150,000 miles on it. Until very recently, it’s been an extremely reliable vehicle,

and I’ve loved it. Lately, and at random times, however, the engine will not shut off – even with the key removed from the ignition and in my hand! I’ve already gotten a new key and replaced the entire ignition cylinder, but it happened again yesterday evening. Luckily, yesterday I was able to fiddle with the key a little bit and finally get the stupid thing to shut off. What could be causing this? At this point, the mechanics I’ve

taken it to haven’t been able to identify or fix the problem, and I can’t find anything on the Internet. Each time it’s happened, my local mechanic has disconnected the battery, which made the car turn off. After that, though, it runs perfectly for maybe a couple of months, until it happens again. Any idea what could be wrong? – Grace TOM: You’re a lucky woman, Grace – you can’t get your Neon to stop.

ing column to the ignition switch at your fingers, the ignition switch signals a power relay under the hood. It’s that relay that actually sends current to the engine’s computer, which enables the engine to run. That relay could be faulty and sticking in the “on” position. RAY: The relay probably costs 20 bucks, and it takes two minutes to replace. So start there, and see if that fixes your problem. TOM: If not, then it’s

Most of our customers with Neons can’t get them to start! RAY: You say you replaced the ignition cylinder. But that’s just the locking mechanism the key fits into; it’s not the ignition switch itself. So you easily could have a bad ignition switch. TOM: But before you replace the switch, try replacing the ignition relay. Rather than have a huge amount of current running through the steer-

almost certainly the ignition switch, because there’s really not much else that could cause this. But since replacing the ignition switch will cost you several hundred dollars, don’t do that until you’ve ruled out the $20 fix. Good luck, Grace.

Vote for province’s worst potholes and more The British Columbia Automobile Association wants to know if flat tires, potholes and traffic congestion are driving British Columbians around the bend. The association is inviting British Columbians to vote for a road they feel is the worst in the province as part of its third annual “Worst Roads” survey. Until May 27, the public is invited to nominate a road in most need of repair or redesign by voting at bcaa.com/worst roads. Once final results are verified, the association will publish the top 10 list and share the results with government to encourage improvements. During recent years, the associ-

ation has observed tire problems such as flat or blown tires and damaged rims as ongoing issues. On average, BCAA receives close to 50,000 calls annually throughout the province for tire-related problems alone. “Tire issues can be caused by a number of factors, but poor road conditions certainly don’t help,” Ken Cousin, the association’s Road Assist associate vicepresident, said in a press release. “Swerving to avoid potholes or hitting them head-on is a safety risk, not to mention the damage it does to vehicles. We want to help our members and British Columbians have their say about the state of our roads.” The association also stated that congestion is worsening, espe-

cially in B.C.’s urban areas. Recently, Vancouver was named the worst city in Canada for congestion, according to a 2013 survey by Tom Tom, a manufacturer of car navigation systems. The survey ranked Vancouver as second worst in North America next to the notorious gridlock of Los Angeles. “Roads that are deteriorating, inadequately maintained or poorly designed affect the pocketbook, stress level and more importantly – personal safety of motorists, cyclists and pedestrians,” Cousin said. “We encourage British Columbians to take five minutes to vote and draw attention to deteriorating, unsafe or inefficient roads in their community. And we will continue to

share our results with decision makers to help them plan for current and future road improvements.” Throughout the campaign, participants can check the website to see where their road ranks and which roads are close to taking the dubious title of “B.C.’s Worst Road.” The BCAA “Worst Roads” survey defines a “worst road” as any piece of paved infrastructure – including a bridge or tunnel – that is in need of repair, has damaging potholes, needs resurfacing, is unsafe and contributes to frequent accidents, or is often heavily congested. Roads that are poorly designed or are too narrow for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists to share

safely also qualify as a “worst road.” Westside Road in Kelowna topped the list last year for its potholes and crumbling pavement. Next was Domano Boulevard in Prince George; Tabor Boulevard in Prince George; Station Street in Vancouver; Cosens Bay Road in Coldstream; Massey Drive in Prince George; 15th Avenue in Prince George; George Massey tunnel in Richmond; the Malahat highway on Vancouver Island; and the Pacific Rim Highway in Port Alberni, south of Clayoquot Plateau Provincial Park. For details on the survey and past results, go to bcaa.com/worst roads. editorial@burnabynow.com

Québec la belle de la Coupe Esso New program nets first-ever medal at midget nationals Tom Berridge sports editor

Quebec’s new development female hockey program paid instant dividends following the province’s first-ever national Esso Cup title. The midget girls’ development team Nord capped the province’s best-ever showing in the five-year history of the Esso national tournament, coming back in the third period to post a 5-2 victory over the North Bay Ice Boltz in the gold-medal final at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre in Burnaby on Saturday. Trailing 2-0 early in the final period, Quebec Nord exploded with five unanswered goals, including three in a two-minute span of the third frame, capped off with the game-winning tally by Katia Boulianne at 5:42. “I can’t believe it. I’m not a goal scorer. But I did it and I’m proud of myself and my team,” said Boulianne after the game. “It’s the most amazing feeling in the world.” While the five-goal Quebec rally caught some by surprise, including the Ontario supporters, Esso tournament stats paint a different picture. Of Quebec Nord’s 31 total goals scored in the tourney, 19 of them came in the final 20 minutes. Earlier in the roundrobin portion of the tournament, Quebec defeated North Bay 3-1 with three power play goals in the

The Nord also erupted for five goals in the third period against the Atlantic champions from Halifax in an 8-1 rout on April 23. “We were just focusing on the third period,” said Boulianne. “We are good in the period. We have a lot of confidence, we never give up and that’s why we are the winners now.” Both Quebec and

Ontario staged mini upsets in the semifinal to move into the championship final. Quebec Nord avenged an opening day 5-2 defeat to the Regina Rebels with a 6-3 win over the Western Canada reps.

Senior attack Riley Loewen earned a second career Conference Carolinas player of the year honour after helping lead Limestone College to an undefeated league field lacrosse season last week. On Senior’s Day, Loewen paced the Saints with two goals and three assists in a 13-6 victory over Catawba on Saturday. Earlier in the month, No. 3-ranked Limestone claimed a fifth consecutive conference title following a 16-8 win over No. 11 Pfieffer on April 21. Loewen chipped in with a goal

and two helpers. He also tallied three times in a six-point output in the Saints’ 15-11 win over Belmont Abbey in the conference semifinal. Loewen’s six points moved him into second place all-time on Limestone’s career total points list ahead of Nick Carlson’s 248 points set back in 2002. Loewen currently holds the school record with 176 goals and is first overall in six other categories, including 252 shots on goal and game starts, with 63. The Burnaby Mountain grad has at least one more game to add to his totals, when Limestone opens the national championships on May 11.

The Burnaby Lakers have got a lot of catching up to do. The junior A Lakers never got off the ground in their B.C. Junior Lacrosse League season openers this weekend. The Lakers opened the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League season with a 15-4 loss to the Delta Islanders on Saturday. Burnaby followed that up with an equally lacklustre 15-5 defeat at the sticks of the Port Coquitlam Saints in their home opener at Burnaby Lake Arena on Sunday. “We just don’t have the talent right now,” said firstyear Burnaby head coach Mike O’Reilly. In Ladner, Delta built leads of 6-1 after one period and 11-3 after two, before finishing off last year’s doormat 4-1 in the final frame. First-year junior Cody Nass, who had 12 goals and 36 points as a call-up last year, led the Islanders with five goals, including a natural hattrick in the middle frame. Burnaby managed just 27 shots on Delta starter and intermediate call-up Matt Keith. At home, Burnaby faired little better, falling behind 7-1 after the opening 20 minutes against the Saints. To their credit, the Lakers showed some life to start the middle period, narrowing the deficit to 7-4 with three quick goals to start the stanza on goals by Cam Hudspeth and a pair from intermediate call-up Dan Spagnuolo. But PoCo responded, and aided by a pair of fourminute back-checking calls, built an eight-goal lead by period’s end. Woodhouse, who had a miserable start in the season opener, appeared a little more comfortable between the pipes, stopping 39 shots fired his way.

Clan women earn playoff spot in conference softball Tom Berridge sports editor

Simon Fraser University guaranteed itself a spot in the Great Northwest conference women’s softball playoff with a series win over Montana State Billings on Saturday. The Clan won two of three games against Billings, including a pair of 11-2 victories before falling in the late game by a 7-5 scoreline. The win in the opening game – a restart from an earlier game that was abandoned because of weather last month – secured SFU a spot in the conference playoffs, which get underway next weekend. Kelsie Hawkins got the win in Game 1, allowing just three hits and striking out nine. Cara Lukawesky got the start in the following game and recorded the win, allowing just five hits, while striking out

six batters. Rachel Kolanko knocked in three runs on two hits, including a two-run dinger in the fifth inning, and scored a run, while Danielle Raison had two hits, two RBIs and scored a pair. Kaitlyn Cameron and Carly Lepoutre also had two hits and a run scored. In Game 3, SFU came back from a 4-2 deficit in the seventh inning to take the lead, when Stephanie Caron came home on a fielder’s choice. But Billings replied in the bottom of the inning, scoring three runs on two hits, including a walk-off home run. The Clan finished in third place with a 15-9 record. SFU will take on conference runner-up Western Oregon in the opening game of the Great Northwest softball championships on Thursday in Billings, Montana. No. 1 Saint Martin’s will meet Central Washington in the other semifinal.

Northwest Giants rookie Bo Didur was named the B.C. major midget all-star goalie last week. The 15-year-old keeper was unbeaten in league play this season with a 22-0-3 record. Giants forward Jarid Lukosevicius joined Didur on the all-star team along with Burnaby Winter Club products Matt Barzal and Tyler Shultz.

But the 17-year-old Montreal native was solid the rest of the way despite giving up a second goal to Ontario’s player of the game Corie Jacobson to start the final period. Quebec mounted its comeback just minutes later, when team goal-scoring leader Audrey Belzile potted her sixth of the tournament, deflecting a wrist shot on goal from player of the game EveAudrey Picard.

After the ensuing faceoff, Roxane Daley slapped home a shot from the point from overall scoring leader Valérie Audet to knot the contest at 2-2. Picard and Alexe Drouin, on an empty-netter at 16:55, also scored for the Nord. The silver medal for the Ice Boltz was the fifth time an Ontario team has claimed a top-three placing in the fiveyear history of the Esso Cup. North Bay defeated 2012 silver medallist and 2010 champion Thunder Bay 3-2 in double overtime to earn its first-ever appearance at the national midget championships.

Clan wrestlers win medals at women’s U.S. open nationals Simon Fraser University’s women wrestlers dominated the competition at the U.S. Open wrestling national championships in Las Vegas last month. Americans Helen Maroulis and Victoria Anthony finished in first and third place in their respective weight classes. Maroulis dominated her competition at 55 kilograms, winning five matches before beating Katherine Fulp-Allen 3-0, 5-0 in the championship final. Maroulis, who started out the U.S. nationals with pins against her first two opponents, is now undefeated since her loss in the world championship final in September. Anthony was also on her game at the open, winning her first two matches in the 48kg weight class before falling to the tournament’s most outstanding wrestler, Alyssa Lambe, in the final by a 3-0, 5-2 decision. Anthony finished with the bronze medal.

Talk about girl power. The South Burnaby Metro Club select teams dominated their competition in the under-13 girls’ provincial club basketball championships in Richmond, adding another championship title to their growing collection. The u-13 Golden Eagles outpointed the Richmond Celtics 35-28 to win the red division banner at the Olympic Oval last month. Isabella Crescenzo and Shiloh Corrales-Nelson were the top scorers for Burnaby in the final game with eight points apiece. The Golden Eagles came through the preliminary round of the red division with a clean 3-0 record before defeating the Tri-City Chaos 25-15 in the semifinals to advance to the age group B finals. Over in the green division it was a similar story for South Burnaby’s Screaming Eagles. The u-13 C team made it through the preliminary round winning two out of three games. The one loss came during a close 39-32 loss against Langley. By the semi-finals the team had bounced back, defeating the Richmond

Thunder 38-21 to push on to the provincial finals where they faced the Langley club team for a second time. Burnaby didn’t let up and outscored their Langley rivals 37-26. Much of the club’s success goes to Rosemary Orenzo, who averaged 10 points per game. At the u-13 boys’ provincials held at the Richmond Oval on April 20 and 21, South Burnaby claimed medals in two separate divisions. The South Burnaby Eagles were edged 52-46 by Athelite in the blue A division final in a battle of the two unbeaten teams. The Eagles breezed through Pool 1 before posting a 51-27 win over their SBMC Allstars clubmates in the semifinal. Athelite, which posted a similar 3-0 record in Pool 2, had a tougher semifinal, beating Tri-City 59-47 to move on to the A division final. The Allstars defeated the Coquitlam club 42-44 in the bronze-medal final. In the B red division, the South Burnaby Raptors beat Force 5 36-31 to win the bronze. South Burnaby’s u-12 Eagles lost the consolation final to Delbrook 48-44.

Harrington - Edwin Charles

February 19,1933 – April 26, 2013. It is with great sadness that we say farewell to Ed.

He was an inspiration for greatness in the arts, and a supporter of local performing artists. Ed was proud to live in the Royal City. He was born, raised and lived in New Westminster his whole life. Predeceased by his parents, Violet Mae and Charles Harrington, his sisters Audrey McLean (Elvin) and Shirley Carlson (Bob), and his brother Clifford. Left to mourn are his loving, devoted partner Dolores Kirkwood, sister Marlene (Chic) Sather, sister in-law Audrey Harrington, his two special grandchildren, Tyler and Vanessa, and many nephews and nieces, as well as many dear friends and his much-loved cocker spaniel, Daisy Mae. He received his bachelor degree from U.B.C. (1957), and Masters from the University of Oregon (1969). He taught at Port Coquitlam Secondary, (which became Terry Fox Secondary) from 1963 to 1989. Along with Dolores Kirkwood and James Bryson, he created musicals for 25 years at that school. Many lives were touched, and even changed as a result of those productions. He also taught in Zweibrucken, Germany, in Metz, France, and Millicent, Australia. Ed acted professionally in theatre and film. He was awarded many honours and awards as a result of his teaching, acting, and directing. He was a lifetime member of ACTRA, UBCP, and Actors Equity. He received the Sam Payne Award from Actor’s Equity, the Ovation Award from Applause Musicals, the key to the City of Port Coquitlam, inducted into the Hall of Fame at Terry Fox Secondary, the first recipient of the Bernie Legge Award for the Arts in New Westminster, and, ultimately, he was elected by his peers and inducted into the British Columbia Entertainment Hall of Fame. An active member of the Vagabond Theatre for many years, he also cofounded the Royal City Musical Theatre Company in 1989 and served as its Artistic Director for 16 years. He loved to travelling, going on many cruises, making annual trips to Mexico, and several trips to India. Ed was a man who lived life to the fullest. Family, career, travel, and the entertainment world filled his life with joy and fulfillment. He said, “I’ve lived a good life. I have no regrets.” His legacy is one of inspiring excellence in, and a love for, the theatre. He was very appreciative of the care he received from Dr. Metzak and Dr. Ryerson (St. Paul’s), as well as great support from Fraser Health. A farewell gathering will be held at Massey Theatre, at 8th Street, and 8th Avenue in New Westminster at 1:00 on Saturday, May 11.
