CITY COP WITH A LOT OF HEAR T RETIRES

‘Chicken legs’ had rock star ambitions BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Adieu: Const. Bruce Ballingall retired as of May 1 after nearly three decades with the New Westminster Police Department.

Const. Bruce Ballingall has made his mark on the Royal City during a 27-year career with the New Westminster Police Department. Ballingall turned 64 on April 29 and officially started his retirement on May 1. Policing wasn’t the first career choice for the native of Winnipeg, Man. “I wanted to be a rock star,” he said. “I was drumming with what became the Guess Who and guess you can say, I lost my focus. There was me, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings – we weren’t called the Guess Who at the time. We were Alan and the Silvertones and the Deverons – there was two bands that became one.” Instead of becoming a rock star, Ballingall started working as a shoe buyer at Eaton’s. “A couple of my friends, their fathers were police officers. I always respected what they did,” he said. “I really wanted to be a social worker. One day I came up with this idea that as a police officer, the uniform is a really awesome tool – you can use the uniform as a tool to help people.” The Winnipeg Police Department hired

Candidates all over the road on new bridge BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Three lanes, four lanes, as many lanes as needed – candidates are all over the road when it comes to a new Pattullo Bridge. TransLink has stated that the 75-yearold bridge is a critical route for moving people and goods, but needs to be replaced because it doesn’t meet current road design guidelines or seismic standards. The City of New Westminster is considering the replacement or rehabilitation of the bridge as part of its master transportation plan. New Westminster Liberal candidate Hector Bremner said a new bridge should

said his party doesn’t believe that building infrastructure solves traffic problems. “I don’t believe that building a new bridge is going to decrease traffic problems or the stress on infrastructure here in New Westminster,” he said. “I do not support either the replacement or the moving of the Pattullo Bridge.” Teather said the existing Pattullo Bridge is unsafe, but it should be rehabilitated rather than replaced. “I think rehabilitating the existing structure would save money in the future,” he said. “I support two widened lanes with a ◗Bridge Page 3

information is needed about traffic on the north and south sides of the Fraser River and a plan for dealing with traffic on the north side of the Fraser River. Bremner said public transportation needs are grossly underserved on the south side of the Fraser River. He noted that South Fraser Perimeter Road is not yet complete so the impacts of that roadway on traffic flows aren’t known. “I think that we need to understand impacts of investments on those areas before we get too concerned about building a bridge as a standalone piece of infrastructure,” he said. Green party candidate Terry Teather

I have been very clear – I said without a proper regional plan, without a comprehensive way of addressing traffic on the north side of the Fraser River, the bridge is sort of a wasteful investment – unless it’s serving a greater purpose,” he said. “The bridge could be 15 lanes, it wouldn’t matter – you still get into Queen’s Park and it’s still residential roads.” Before any decision is reached about the Pattullo Bridge, Bremner said detailed

Victim searching for owner of vicious dog BY STEFANIA SECCIA REPORTER sseccia@royalcityrecord.com

A dog attack in Burnaby has sent a New Westminster man’s four-legged family member into critical condition and himself to the hospital for IV therapy. On April 22, Darren Pilling and his three-yearold sheltie dog, Finley, were enjoying a walk in Burnaby’s Fraser Foreshore Park when the attack occurred. Pilling owns a manufacturing truck parts business, but he’s often in Burnaby three to four times a week on business. “(Finley) can play with the ducks, gets another walk in during the day,” he told The Record. “We were doing that a few days a week for a long time, it’s normal practice.” But nothing was normal about this trip. Pilling saw a large dog that may have been a pit bull mix, unleashed and barreling towards Finley. “My buddy has a pit bull, two of them, and one he can let run free – it’s as

friendly as Finley,” Pilling explained. “I figured, OK, this guy has a (dog) off leash so it’s got to be one of the good pit bulls.” Then Pilling said he noticed the dog wasn’t slowing down and before he knew it, the big dog had flipped Finley over and was trying to eat her. “I started to boot the (other) dog in the head to try to get it to let go of Finley,” he said. “The owner started yelling at me for booting his dog in the head.” Finally, the dog did stop from tearing open Finley’s underbelly and took off. Finley also took off in another direction. “I followed the owner, I was kind of in shock and panic,” he said. “I was angry, but not in full-rage mode. I was pissed off. Somebody just attacked one of my family members.” Pilling said he got into a verbal argument with the other owner and asked for his info, which the owner refused to give. “Then I started to get pissed off and angry, and he

dedicated lane for cyclist and pedestrians, because that is aligned with the green way of thinking.” Teather would support banning truck traffic on the Pattullo Bridge unless New Westminster is the destination. He said money saved by not building a new bridge could be invested in areas of transit that are vital to the region, including light rail in Surrey and transit along the Broadway corridor in Vancouver. Conservative candidate Paul Forseth has long believed that the Pattullo Bridge needs to be replaced. “I am one of the few who has actually climbed underneath the steel of the Pattullo Bridge and risked my life while walking across the four-inch beams to paint and scrape that bridge. When I was 19 years old, I was working on bridge maintenance as a summer job. One of my colleagues fell to (his) death when I was right beside him. So I know what it’s like to be under that bridge, on the bridge, when the heavy traffic goes over,” he told The Record. “In 1966 I felt the bridge should have been replaced – it’s been maintained since then, but the structure needs to be replaced.”

Forseth disagrees with those who’ve suggested the bridge should be torn down and not replaced. “That is an unrealistic, selfish view. We need a new bridge that meets environmental standards, that’s much safer. This is not just a bridge for Surrey and New Westminster, this is a bridge for Western Canada,” he said. “We should be able to be proud of a great structure that could be put in its place. When I think of some of the greatest photographs of grand cities around the world, often there is a bridge in the background, which describes and defines a city that’s bold in its future and proud of its ability to be a livable region where people want to live and have social discourse. One of those basic freedoms is the freedom to move.” New Westminster NDP candidate Judy Darcy said she lives in Victoria Hill and sees motorists darting through her neighbourhood trying to avoid the lineups to get onto the bridge. “I see that traffic, I live it. It comes up our street. It’s impossible to get out of our garage often,” she said. “I think it’s really symptomatic of the fact that we have a

TransLink board that is completely unaccountable. Issue number 1 is we need to make the TransLink board accountable to the communities it is supposed to represent, including New Westminster, don’t you think? It’s time to tell the provincial government to stop treating New Westminster like an intersection, an intersection for the Lower Mainland.” Darcy said she supports New Westminster city council’s position that the city doesn’t want increased congestion in neighborhoods, as its bad for children and bad for the environment. “I think you really have to invest in public transit,” she added. “We will invest in public transit. We will use significant parts of the carbon tax to invest in public transit because that’s a critical part of the solution to a regional transportation plan that really helps to reduce the congestion and traffic in New Westminster.” Independent candidate James Crosty said air quality is an issue that must be considered as part of planning for the future of the Pattullo Bridge. “Before we can talk about replacing the Pattullo, we need solutions over here,” he said about New Westminster roads. “We

need to open the dialogue and we need to find out exactly what the people of New Westminster want on this side of the bridge first and foremost.” Crosty said there’s a traffic mess from Queensborough to United Boulevard. While something needs to be done with the Pattullo Bridge because it’s unsafe, he also wants a tunnel to be considered as a way of moving traffic through New Westminster to improve air quality. “I want the tunnel option on the table for discussion. Primarily because we need to deal with the issue on New Westminster’s side before the Pattullo is replaced, fixed, torn down, repaired, made one lane, made six lanes – it doesn’t matter. The issue here is air quality,” he said, noting tunnels have been done in a cost-effective manner in Norway. “If you have a way of taking the traffic through New Westminster without going over top of it, then they can build a 12-lane bridge. Who cares as long as it’s not all feeding into New Westminster?” For more election news, including a story on the all-candidates meeting on Wednesday night sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, go to www.royalcityrecord.com.

New Westminster resident Tony Eberts passes away

BY JENNIFER MOREAU REPORTER jmoreau@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster’s Tony Eberts, a longtime letter-tothe-editor writer and Province reporter, has passed away at the age of 80. According to The Province, Eberts spent more than three decades in the newsroom, covering New Westminster and environmental issues. Eberts’ letters to the editor often appeared in the Burnaby

NOW and The Record, his hometown publication. Eberts died on Saturday, April 27, at Royal Columbian Hospital. Earlier this year, he was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis, which causes severe weakening of the muscles. His last letter to the editor ran in The Record on Wednesday, April 24 – just four days before his passing. Eberts is survived by his son Jerry, daughters Janet and Nancy, and grandson Jake. He is predeceased by his wife Dorothy, whom he met while working at The Province. According to The Province, reporter Ashley Ford sat next

to Eberts for years and remembered him as “a real gentleman” who “didn’t take guff from anyone and … knew how to ask the right questions.” Ford also told The Province that Eberts was “one of the best writers the paper ever had.” “Tony’s big belief was in telling it like it was,” he said. “I know Tony believed this implicitly: If you turn out a good newspaper, people will read it. Good journalism will bring good readers.” – With files from Stephanie Ip, The Province

Attack: RCMP investigating – dog remains in critical condition Pilling said. “We ended up in a scuffle in the middle of the street.” That’s when the big dog, who attacked Finley, bit into Pilling’s leg. “I turned around and punched the dog in the nose and he let go,” Pilling said. “I turned back to the guy and he has a knife in his hand and he said something like, ‘Get out of here.’” The same witness who was on the trail also chanced upon Pilling and the other dog owner again, and called Pilling to pay attention to Finley. “The lady followed the guy from the trail,” he said. “She was there, yelling, ‘Your dog, your dog.’” That’s when Pilling ran back to his truck and drove “like a crazy man” to try and find a vet while Finley was bleeding out in the backseat. “I’ve been hurt and lost blood, but to see how much blood she was losing,” Pilling said, “and I’m on the phone … and I’m half crazy trying to find a vet.” When Finley finally received care she received stitches to her stomach and was stable, but a day or two

later her health took a turn for the worst, according to Pilling. “We brought her back home again and she wasn’t right at all,” Pilling said. The vet had to cut her open again and Finley’s stomach became bloated to the point where she looked pregnant, Pilling said. After Global TV’s segment on Pilling’s story earlier this week, his family was able to bring Finley to a vet in Vancouver. “She’s in there now and she had surgery last night (April 30) and there’s a hole in her stomach,” Pilling said. Finley is in critical condition, taking it hour by hour. “She has to make it through the next four days to get stable,” Pilling said, May 1. Pilling said he’s past anger and is concerned for his dog. Meanwhile he has had to get IV therapy every day at Royal Columbian Hospital to fight an infection from the bite in his leg. “Forget about the money,” he said about the bills that are reaching the $5,000 mark. “This guy has put my dog through hell

and the rest of it so he can think he’s the cool guy with the pit bull off his leash.” Although Pilling said he’s not sure what kind of dog attacked Finley, he did say it was big and looked like it had some kind of pit bull mix. Burnaby RCMP confirmed it is investigating Finley’s attack. “It doesn’t make sense,” Pilling added. “But most traumatic things don’t.”

His joy for life and people and theatre was visible in everything he did. He was a generous soul with his time and energy, and laughter, and the city is poorer for losing him.

Tony Eberts was a reporter at The Province newspaper for years, and an author. When he made New Westminster his home, he also became a regular letter to the editor writer. His letters were always born from his principles, straight-shooting and often tinged with a wry sense of humour that only a reporter could have. Yes, we know, people leave, they die, that’s life.

The U.S. was born through a revolution and a Declaration of Independence that began “We the people …” By contrast, Canada was born, quietly 90 years later, through evolution, with reliance on “… Peace, Order and good Government …” The contrast in our beginnings persists to this day in our attitudes to changing the direction of projects like the transhipment and export of coal to Asia. Washington State’s Whatcom County (population 200,000-plus) has received 125,000 public comments over a 12-day comment period that cul-

minated in a 140-page report by three federal, state and local agencies on the environmental impact of expansion of the Cherry Point Gateway Pacific Terminal to handle coal from the ominously named Powder River Basin. By contrast, our city councillors and New Westminster Environmental Partners have only recently jumped on the “Coal Train” – the moral equivalent of running to catch up to lead a parade past the reviewing stand – a parade started by Quayside and Queensborough resident petitions. I have listened to New Westminster provincial candidates on the coal transhipment facility. All but Terry Teather and James Crosty cede the issue to “federal jurisdiction” or being a “done deal.” The May 9 Community Dialogue on Coal and Climate Change meeting at Surrey City Centre Library from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. will hopefully change this provincial ◗Coal Page 7

apathy. Our MPs have written letters to the federal government ministers responsible, but can they sway Port Metro Vancouver to be as proactive as their U.S. counterparts to protect the health, safety and environment of the million-plus folks between White Rock and Texada Island? Permitting this coal facility at Fraser Surrey Docks by public relations rather than through public hearings is outrageous. Our U.S. neighbours are listened to and protected, and we up here in Canada are not. People in the U.S. push back on “done deals,” and their successful efforts to keep coal out of their backyards have nudged the black stuff squarely into our front yard – demonstrating, perhaps, that, “we the people…” is more effective than reliance on, “peace, order and good government…” E. C. “Ted” Eddy, via email

Setting Liberal facts right Dear Editor:

Just filling in some missing numbers at the April 24 all-candidates meeting in New Westminster. Liberal candidate, Hector Bremner spent time quoting the Liberal party line, often rechecking his notes to make sure that he had correctly read the “facts” about education funding provided by his party. He was correct in stating his party “has increased funding since it became the ruling party more than a decade ago.” What he neglected to tell the public was that our children’s education has slipped as a priority in the provincial budget from 26 per cent 10 years ago to just 15 per cent today. Rising cost pressures have far outstripped government increases to the

budget; funding increases have not been large enough to preserve the same levels of services students had a decade ago; during the past decade the number of full-time equivalent educators has increased by five per cent in Canada and decreased by two per cent in B.C.; and in major key indicators used by Statistics Canada, B.C. ranked tenth out of 10 in percentage increases in education spending. Per-student operating expenditures in B.C. in 2005/06 were $131 above the Canadian average, but in 2009/10 were $412 below the Canadian average. During the last decade in B.C., underfunding has led to a loss of 752 special education teachers; the loss of a third of all ELL (English Language Learners) teachers – a decline of 340 teachers even although the number of ELL students has increased; the number of counsellors in the system dropped by 117 (while the demand for their assistance has increased); the number of teacher-librarians has declined by 30 per cent at a time when the demands of rapid change in new technology have dramatically increased and led to rapidly increasing numbers of overcrowded classes with a more complex composition of students with broad ranges of needs. Locally, insufficient government funding has led to the need for recent massive layoffs in the New Westminster school district. Guess he just forgot to mention that part. Even with all this, Mr. Bremner focused on the point that our system is “just racing to mediocrity,” neglecting to mention that New Westminster has proven itself over and over again, on provincial, national and international assessments, in the academics, arts and athletics, to have outstanding students, reflecting a world class education system. To suggest racing towards mediocrity is an insult all the hard work done in this city by the students, school staff, school board, parents and the community itself.

to which you rationally arrived. You did not give way to a default position – you actively chose “None of the Above.” No one can dispute it. No one can deny or misconstrue your intent (or your discontent). “None of the Above” could be an important way for a lot of people – particularly in this election – to actively participate in

the democratic process. You don’t like one party and never have? You don’t have to hold your nose to vote for another candidate that has no appeal for you. You can’t vote for your party’s candidate because you can’t stand the leader? Or vice versa? “None of the Above” can’t win an election – but it sends a clear message. If there are few votes for “None of the Above” in your riding, clearly you

are in the minority. Too bad. But if “None of the Above” is a hugely popular choice in any riding, the politicians and their parties will have to take notice. Or someone else will recognize the opportunity for a better choice. Bob Groeneveld is the editor for The Record’s sister papers, the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Times and the Langley Advance.

◗ ELECTION BRIEFS

DENTURE CLINIC

Libertarian joins the election fray

A Libertarian candidate is the latest person to file nomination papers to run in New Westminster in the May 14 provincial election. Lewis Clarke Dahlby, the Libertarian candidate joins Hector Bremner (B.C. Liberal Party), James Crosty (independent); Judy Darcy (B.C. NDP), Paul Forseth (B.C. Conservative Party) and Terry Teather (Green Party of B.C.)

One meeting left

New Westminster candidates have already attended three all-candidates events and have one to go in the campaign. Following up on last week’s district parent advisory council all-candidates meeting and Sundays’ event hosted by the Queen’s Park Residents’ Association, the candidates attended a meeting held by The New Westminster Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday. The next meeting will be on foot – Tenth to the Fraser, NEXT New West and New Westminster Environmental Partners are holding an all-candidates walk on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. Candidates and community members will meet at Sapperton Park (at the corner of East Columbia and Sherbrooke streets). After meeting at the park, people can stroll to River Market – giving candidates a chance to chat with community members and allowing each candidate a chance to address the crowd for five minutes.

Seniors’ support NDP candidate Judy

Darcy believes New Westminster seniors will get more support from a New Democrat government. The NDP is committing to $70 million over three years to enable seniors and people with chronic disabilities to receive home support and community care. It’s also committing to improving standards of residential care for seniors who can’t remain at home by investing $35 million to improve basic services. “This support is critically needed. I know from talking with seniors and their families with staff at RCH, Queen’s Park Care Centre and other facilities how desperately needed this support is,” Darcy said in a press release. “One in 10 hospital beds is being used by someone who should be receiving care elsewhere. We know that effective home support reduces the demands on our hospitals, but fundamentally it’s the right thing to do for our seniors who want to live in their homes for as long as possible.”

Livable income

The Green party is proposing a guaranteed livable income to eliminate poverty in British Columbia. “It’s time to eliminate poverty,” said Green party leader Jane Sterk in a press release. “Families and individuals caught in the cycle of poverty have not been offered hope or a fair share in our province’s wealth. The only way to really eliminate poverty is by instituting a guaranteed

Retired: Ballingall leaves New West police after 27 years ◗ continued from page 1

him in 1976, even though he had hair down to the middle of his back. “I had to walk the beat. In Winnipeg, you didn’t see inside a police car for the first two years. You walked the beat. That’s how I learned to be a cop, that’s how you learn to communicate with people by walking the beat – eye-toeye, one-on-one,” he said. “It was cool. I loved it.” Ballingall, who had lived on the West Coast with his family as a teenager, started work with the New Westminster Police Department in 1986. “I wanted to continue on what I was doing – street level policing, community policing,” he said. “It was always a way of approaching policing. It’s about the community. You don’t do anything without the community’s involvement. It just doesn’t work.” Though he’s well known in the Royal City for his community policing initiatives, Ballingall is no stranger to the streets. “It’s happened a few times,” he said about pulling his gun. “Back in the day, New West was the Wild West. There was a time that we had more bar seats per capita than any place else in North America.” In addition to being a patrol officer, Ballingall has worked as a traffic officer, crime prevention officer, station duty officer and even as a detective. He’s hosted a couple of policing shows on cable and helped establish the Rock Solid anti-bullying program. “I have been very blessed in my career to be able to do most of it on my terms. I have done everything twice because I have been around so long,” he laughed. “I’ve worked in all sections but being in community policing/ crime prevention has always been my passion. I have put a lot of my own free time into it through the years because I believe in it. You know why I do it? My community gets it. The volunteers in New West – I have sat on a lot of provincial committees – the volunteers in New West blow every-

body else away. We have true community commitment in our community. It’s very unique in that. Other communities have good citizens, yeah, but ours has a plethora of good, caring citizens who really want to be involved in the community. That’s why we are such a successful city.” While he could have retired a few years back, Ballingall wasn’t ready to go and fought retirement. “It used to be mandatory at 60. I thought, well that doesn’t seem fair so I had some guidance, put together a legal brief and here I am,” he said. “I love this community, I love being here and I love working in this community – I still have that passion but there comes a time when you have to try something different so I’m off to try something different. Maybe I will put the band back together.” Chicken Legs, as Ballingall is known to thousands of New Westminster children, has yet to decide whether he’ll return to the Royal City to help out with this summer’s soccer camp. “Soccer school,” he said of his proudest accomplishment. “It’s one of the most successful community police programs in North America, one of the longest running, if not the longest running.”

Ballingall’s larger-than-life presence will be missed at the New Westminster police station. “The thing we will notice about Bruce being gone is it will be quieter,” said Chief Const. Dave Jones. “Bruce has been a big part, not only of the police department, but the community too.” While there are a lot of people who represent the police department when they’re in uniform, Jones noted that Ballingall represented more than the uniform and represented it at a personal level. “Of all the people I have come into contact with in city hall, he was the loudest – he also had the biggest heart. He’s a fellow that I very much respect; I really appreciate everything he has done for the city. Cities are built sometimes with characters – and he’s been a positive one,” said Mayor Wayne Wright, who chairs the New Westminster Police Board. “That fella has been nothing but a positiveness for the city. He will be missed. His intention is always for somebody else.” For the full version of this story, and a related story – go to www.royalcityrecord.com

Are you prepared for the worst? BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster residents are getting a helping hand in preparing for emergency situations. The City of New Westminster has proclaimed May 5 to 11 as Emergency Preparedness Week. “Know the hazards, make a plan, get a kit,” said Dave Jones, coordinator of the city’s emergency program office. During E m e rg e n c y Preparedness Week, the city is offering two free sessions on personal preparedness to help residents be prepared for emergencies. The city’s emergency management office, and fire and police services are offering free emergency preparedness workshops on May 6 and 8, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The seminars will provide an overview of emergency preparedness, help people develop a family emergency plan, explain the role of the fire and police departments, and show how people can create a family emergency kit so they can be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours if an emergency strikes. Jones stressed the importance of residents and businesses taking action to be prepared for any emergency. “Personal preparedness is what you need to do,” he said. “The government can’t do everything. People have a responsibility to be prepared.” In addition to an emergency

a rail line that transports hazardous materials or being in an area that experiences severe weather storms. “We always offer free classes,” Jones said. “We have it on the city’s website so people can sign up for those things.” For the past 26 weeks, the city has been providing weekly tips through social media on becoming prepared during an emergency.

The emergency preparedness workshops are free, but space is limited to 40 persons per session. To register, call the emergency management office at 604-5153794 or email nwEMO@newwestcity.ca.

Mother’s Day

Shop smart for your mom this Mother’s Day C ome spring, shoppers often ask, “What gift should I get Mom for Mother’s Day?” How do people transform the sentiments they have for their mother into gifts that represent love and devotion? Buying a Mother’s Day gift is no easy task, especially for those who wait until the last minute to do their shopping. Here are some ways to shop in a smart manner. • Do some sleuthing. Play detective and take inventory of what Mom likes to do the most. If you ask your mother what she wants, she will likely brush off the question and tell you nothing. It is up to you to do the investigative work. Pay attention to conversations and see if there is anything she mentions wanting to try or something around the house that may need updating. Practical gifts are less likely to end up unopened in the basement or attic. • Check expiration dates. Gift certificates and cards for particular stores or services are popular come Mother’s Day. But it is essential to check expiration dates on the certificates or find gifts, as there is a good chance Mom will put off pampering herself and you would not want the gift to expire before she has a chance to use it. In compliance with the law, chain restaurant gift cards don’t expire for at least five years from purchase.

• Verify a business. Although Mom may love a cute boutique that just opened, verify the business before buying a gift card from it. An unpredictable economy has made it even harder for new businesses to succeed, and you don’t want Mom to be stuck with a worthless gift card should the new business not thrive. If she really likes a particular new business, take her on a shopping spree at the store instead. • Skip the chocolate overload. Flowers and chocolates are traditional Mother’s Day gifts. However, calorie-conscious women may not want to be faced with the temptation of a warehouse-sized box of chocolate treats. If Mom truly loves chocolate, treat her to a gourmet piece or two, but don’t make that your main gift.

• Avoid “final sale” items. It can be tempting to peruse the deepdiscount rack at Mom’s favourite store when retailers cut prices on items in anticipation of a new season. However, these sales may come with restrictions on returns or exchanges. Unless you know Mom will like what you pick out, avoid the “final sale” racks in favour of items that can be returned or exchanged. —MetroCreative

very spring individuals celebrate their mothers on Mother’s Day. It has evolved from a day to honour mothers to one that recognizes all special women. Therefore, if there is a woman in one’s life who isn’t a biological mother — but special nonetheless — Mother’s Day can be a time to tell her how much she is appreciated. There are many reasons a person may want to honour a woman that is not his or her mother. Perhaps the person’s own mother has passed away or is not prominent in this individual’s life. Maybe there is a grandmother or aunt with whom one is especially close. There may be a teacher or mentor that has touched the life of a person in a special way. Although Mother’s Day is built around giving thanks to Mom, it’s certainly acceptable to thank women in addition to dear old Mom. Furthermore, one needn’t wait until a specific day in May to honor a notable woman. This can be done all year long with certain gestures and sentiments. For those who are celebrating all women on Mother’s Day, here are some ways to set the day apart. * Create a handmade card with personalized sentiments that reflect the unique relationship with this special woman. This can mean more than a prepurchased card that may not offer the right words. * Find out her interests and spend a day doing entirely what she wants to do. It doesn’t necessarily have to take place on Mother’s Day. A trip to a museum or a day at the park — whatever it may be — can be a nice outing. * Treat her to a special dinner. Ask about favourite foods and create a meal at home. If dining out is a must, choose a day other than Mother’s Day to avoid the crowds and have intimate moments with just the two of you, especially if you are also honouring your own mother on Mother’s Day.

The holiday can be customized any way a person sees fit. —MetroCreative

Corner captures history OUR PAST

ARCHIE & DALE MILLER

T

he city blocks surrounding the corner of Columbia and Eighth Streets have been a major focus of the downtown story since the city plan was first surveyed. This corner has always been a well-connected site. There was access to the river as well as links to the trails and roads that headed off into the forested landscape surrounding the new capital city’s location. The street junction was broad to accommodate cargo and people, incoming or outgoing. In time, the railroad would arrive and a streetcar transit system would open up more territory. One of the many stations from each of these systems remain downtown today. A brief look at the various buildings and businesses that have occupied land near this corner since the city began in 1859 is very informative. This cer-

tainly was one of the vital corners downtown and, for that matter, within the entire town. On the waterfront nearby there were docks, industry, boat moorage, fishing boats, public works vessels, warehouses, cold storage, and many others. As noted previously, there were train tracks with spur lines, shipping landings, and even an impressive large u-shaped track to reroute freight cars and engines. There were a number of hotels, cafés, confectionery shops and the like, to serve a busy bustling clientele. There was also a great place for ice cream. There were hardware stores, machine shops, two or three blacksmiths, a carpentry shop or two, and other similar businesses. There were clothing stores, tailors, places to find boots and shoes, and more. There were sewing shops, dry cleaners, restaurants, purveyors of produce, meats and fish, all operated by hard working Chinese and Japanese entrepreneurs. There were livery stables, a small movie house, and offices for tug boats and other river-based firms.

One hardware store had a marvellous sign standing out from the business block – a huge padlock. Another store nearby had a very big clock with a suspended pendulum below, marking the entrance to the downtown. A local hotel was home to a radio station destined from day one to be a prominent player in the innovative mode of entertainment. This is but a simple and very selective list from the area immediately surrounding Eighth Street at Columbia – there are many more examples to be had. It is on one of the corners of this intersection that the new civic structure, to be known as the Anvil Centre, is now under construction. When complete it will take its place in the story of this neighbourhood. For a visual tour of this “Anvil Centre neighbourhood” through the years, plan to come to the New Westminster Historical Society evening on Wednesday, May 15 starting at 7:30 p.m. in the library auditorium. You’ll be intrigued by the history and captivated by the pictures.

Olympic search is on at the lake BY CAYLEY DOBIE REPORTER editorial@royalcityrecord.com

It takes an individual with unique talents to row competitively. A person needs to be strong, tall and athletic in order to race along the water in the narrow row boats. They need a good lung capacity, especially when it comes down to the final strokes, and they need the long limbs required to make the oar strokes. According to 2008 Olympic gold-medalist, Ben Rutledge, only about one in 10,000 people would meet the physical requirements it takes to be a professional rower. Rutledge began his rowing career in his second year of university. It was his tall stature that caught the eye of a rowing coach. From there, Rutledge trained with coaches and mentors in Canada’s rowing program. He later went on to win seven World Cup medals, three world championship titles, an Olympic gold medal and in 2009 he was inducted into the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame. Canadian rowers have won 40 medals at the Olympic games, including nine gold. Because of Canada’ strong rowers, the program was given a large grant in order to create a development program that will actively search out potential rowers and train them to become the country’s next champions. Row to Podium was the result of the funding. The program targets high school students from Grades 10 to 12 who have no experience in rowing,

Junior special teams trump A’s BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Row your boat: Layla Balooch was an all-star in high school volleyball but has since taken up competitive rowing after being identified by Rowing Canada’s Row to Podium program but have specific traits that suit the sport. Traits like height, strength and endurance are very important to being successful in the sport, Rutledge said. “We’re trying to identify Canada’s next Olympic and Paralympic champions,” he said. “We’re looking for people with some unique, exceptional physical capabilities.” Row to Podium coaches have been building

relationships with high schools across the country, including Burnaby, to try to identify which students could potentially fit the necessary criteria. The program hosted a recent recruitment night at Burnaby 8 Rinks. They invited students from the community to come out and participate in two physical tests to determine whether or not they have the necessary cardiovascu-

lar endurance and body strength. Burnaby North senior, Layla Balooch was one of these unique finds that Rutledge came across at a high school volleyball game more than a year ago. “I happened to stumble upon her at the volleyball game and asked her to come along and do the tests,” he said. “She has since stopped playing

volleyball and she loves (rowing). It’s a tough sport and it requires a certain mindset and drive, but she loves it and is showing some great signs of future success.” Balooch placed seventh overall in the junior women’s single sculls at Rowing Canada’s Aviron’s Spring Trials at Burnaby Lake on April 20.

New Westminster drew first blood in the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League rivalry with Coquitlam. ThejuniorASalmobellies won their season home opener, defeating the Adanacs 10-8 at Queen’s Park Arena on Tuesday. The ’Bellies held off a late A’s rally in the final stanza with a pair of special team tallies, including the game-winning goal on a power play by first-year intermediate Kamloops product Jeremy Bosher at 15:40 of the third period. The 17-year-old Bosher, who will be aged up with the junior team this season, scored his first-ever junior A goal with the second of New West’s three shorthanded goals, and also set up Josh Byrne with the first shortie in the opening period following a great special teams rag. Bosher and Byrne led the junior ’Bellies with two goals and one assist apiece. “It’s my first game of junior A. I’m just getting a taste of it. I’m going to enjoy it,” said Bosher, who will be headed south on a field lacrosse scholarship after graduation. “It’s just the beginning of the season. We can only go up from here and that’s what we’re doing.” Third-year Salmonbellie runner Daniel Perreault ◗Bellies Page 19

Winter club joins new school hockey league BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

The Burnaby Winter Club and Burnaby Central Secondary School are joining forces to form a midget hockey academy that will compete in the Canadian Sports School Hockey League this fall. The elite school league, founded in 2009, will compete in an under-18 prep division for grades 11 and 12 students and a new elite 15s division against academy teams from Alberta, the Okanagan and Lower Mainland teams from Abbotsford and South Delta. “Strategically we needed to be in this game and here we are doing it,” said BWC general manager Len McNeely. The school league differs from Burnaby North’s school academy in that it caters to

a specific elite age group. The academy also is not in direct competition with the existing B.C. major midget hockey league and the Northwest Giants, which also practises and plays at the winter club. The prep team is most likely to be made up of players who will not make it on a major midget roster. The elite 15s addresses an age-group gap on most existing major midget clubs and an opportunity for 15-year-old players to compete in something other than what exists at the association level, said McNeely. “Few (15-year-olds) made it on major midget teams. There was a void there and an important need to play at a higher level of competition. It’s addressing that particular void,” he added.

Ian Gallagher, director of hockey operations at the South Delta academy, was a main driver in helping expand the existing school league to include a total of nine teams in one or the other of the two divisions. The Burnaby Winter Club will compete in both divisions, along with South Delta, Okanagan Hockey Academy in Penticton, Pursuit of Excellence in Kelowna, Edge School Sports in Calgary and Banff Academy. Former Greater Vancouver major midget coach Leland Mack, who also spent two seasons as an assistant with the Giants, will be the head coach of the younger elite school team. A coach for the prep team will be named at a later date, said McNeely. The winter club academy will offer elite

coaching, high school graduation credits, a more than 50-game schedule, as well as on-ice and dry land training. Players will be selected based on evaluation skates likely to be held later this month. The teams will train and compete from September to June. Acadamy players would also be eligible to affiliate with junior teams, said McNeely. The academy program was approved by the Burnaby School District last week. The moves will not affect the existing affiliations the winter club has with the NW Giants and the Grandview Steelers of the Pacific Junior Hockey League, said McNeely. Burnaby Winter Club’s midget A1 rep team will also still be available for club members to compete with at the Pacific Coast association level.

◗ WHL BANTAM DRAFT

Club trio go in first round BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

The Burnaby Winter Club put three players from its Tier 1 bantam A1 hockey team into the first round of the Western Hockey League bantam draft on Thursday. Dante Fabbro, a 6-0 righthanded defenceman, was picked up eighth overall by the Seattle Thunderbirds. Vancouver forward Jake Kryski also went in the opening round, drafted 13th by the Prince Albert Raiders. Another winter club defenceman, Matt Barberis,

could play his future junior hockey closer to home. The 5-10 defender went to the Vancouver Giants in the 20th spot following an earlier deal that sent David Musil to the Edmonton Oil Kings. As suspected the Giants drafted consensus first overall Tyler Benson from the South Side Athletic Club in Edmonton with the No. 1 pick. A fourth winter club pick, forward Jaeger White, was taken in the fourth round by Lethbridge with the 72nd pick acquired from Regina. Burnaby goalie Tyler

opened the scoring with his third goal of the season. Perreault also had a threepoint night. The Salmonbellies led throughout the contest, building a 6-4 lead heading into the final frame following back-to-back 3-2 efforts in the first two periods. But Coquitlam took advantage of some opportunistic penalty calls, firing three goals with the man advantage to knot the score at 8-8 on Steven Neufeld’s hattrick marker. Three minutes later, Bosher scored from the high post. Reese Robinson iced the game with a looseball turnover at mid court and scored into the empty net to ice the Salmonbellies’ first win of the season. New Westminster is at home to the Nanaimo Timbermen on Sunday. Game time is 5 p.m.

Shugrue was also picked up by Vancouver, going in the fifth round 102nd overall with a pick acquired from the Red Deer Rebels. “(The draft) kind of fell into the spots we thought it ws going to fall into,” said Burnaby Winter Club bantam head coach John Batchelor, adding the draft worked out well for Fabbro, his best friend Mathew Barzal and the Thunderbirds. “I talked with Dante, and he’s happy to go to the Seattle, Seattle’s happy to have him and Matty (Barzal) is happy to have him.”

her third competition since she began training. Balooch said that it’s taken a lot of hard work to get ready for competition. Before joining the program, she didn’t really know much about the sport of rowing other than what she had seen on television. “I knew what rowing was, but I didn’t really know how difficult it was, or the fact that it was even a cardio sport,” Balooch said. The Burnaby native’s ranking at the spring trials will help coaches and program officials determine whether or not

she’ll be chosen for a national team one day, which is Balooch’s ultimate goal. But she admits it’ll take some more work before she’s ready for any world competitions. “When you actually (row) there’s so much to think about,” she said. “Every stroke is different, and you always have a new thing to think about.” Until then Balooch will continue her training with Rutledge and the Row to Podium program while, hopefully attending the University of B.C. next September.

Choices has been the proud recipient of local and national Fair Trade awards since 2010. What is Fair Trade? According to Fair Trade Canada Fair Trade is a different way of doing business. It is about making principles of fairness and decency mean something in the marketplace. It seeks to change the terms of trade for the products we buy – to ensure the farmers and artisans behind those products get a better deal. Most often this is understood to mean better prices for producers, but it often means longer-term and more meaningful trading relationships as well. Visit www.fairtrade.canada.ca 2010, 2013 Awards.
