Tanya Foulds with daughter Isabella, husband Joel Wilson and daughter Charlotte, 4, have set up a $5,000 fund in memory of Isabella’s twin sister Brooklyn, who died two days after birth. The Brooklyn Wish Fund is being set up to help parents of children in Royal Columbian Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Couple thanks hospital with fund Looking to help other NICU parents in memory of their daughter Grant Granger ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

Finding parking near Royal Columbian Hospital is frustrating at the best of times. When the exasperating search follows an aggravating trip over the Port Mann Bridge and is added to the stress of tending to a premature baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) whose twin died two days after birth, the irritation is

compounded. It’s one of the many issues Tanya Foulds and her husband Joel Wilson hope they can help NICU parents like themselves with after starting a $5,000 trust fund as a memorial to their daughter Brooklyn. It all began a little over a year ago. Foulds had been coming to RCH from Aldergrove during her pregnancy to see her obstetrician. The doctor was worried because her hips were starting to separate. The twins weren’t due until early September, but on May 9, 2011 she noticed some spotting. Her doctor told her to come in

immediately. When she arrived they told her she was three centimetres dilated and they wanted to do a surgery to stitch her cervix back up. When they got her to the operating room several hours later she was up to seven centimetres. “By then they were really worried it wasn’t going to work, but they managed to do the surgery.” Over the next ¿ve days Foulds was shuttled back and forth to the delivery room several times. On May 15 at about 6 a.m., a doctor doing a regular check all of a sudden started calling for help and Isabella came into the

world a few minutes later, 23 weeks premature. “It was fast, it was like a whirlwind. I’ve never seen so many people in a room,” says Foulds. The medical team decided to see if they could stop Foulds’ contractions before Brooklyn came out but, unlike her sister, she was out of her sac. When Brooklyn emerged 2 1/2 hours after Isabella she was bruised from all the banging around. The babies, both weighing slightly more than one pound, were put in NICU. Please see COUPLE, A3

This year’s cool weather may be making life miserable for sun seekers, but it is quelling Àood fears in New Westminster. However, the city is still taking precautions in case the large snowpack built up over the winter causes the Fraser River to overÀow its banks. The city has unloaded 1,500 huge, white 400-pound sandbags, most of them in the Braid industrial area and at the east end of Quayside. “If you were to run into them with your car you’d put a pretty big dent in your car. They’re solid, that’s why we use them,” said Dave Jones of the city’s emergency management of¿ce. Jones said this year’s snowpack is much like 2007 when sandbags were also deployed. But concern this year isn’t as strong because the snow isn’t melting as fast as ¿ve years ago. “The conditions are different in the environment in that the rapid snow was accumulating much later in the year and the weather wasn’t complicit, it wasn’t acting nice,” said Jones.

“Things at ¿rst seemed good. They warned us it would be hard to see them, and we need to be prepared for what they look like and what they’re hooked up to. Visually they don’t look like babies at that point, a little bit alien like. They still had their eyes fused shut, they weren’t even open yet ... Their skin was almost translucent,” says Foulds. “To me they were still the prettiest little girls ever.” An ultrasound on Brooklyn’s brain revealed a massive hemorrhage on one side and the pressure was pushing on the other. Two days after her birth, the doctors told Foulds and Wilson if she lived Brooklyn would be quite brain damaged. There was no surgery they could do to correct the problem, and they gave her morphine so she wouldn’t be in pain. Foulds says if Brooklyn had lived she would have had severe brain damage, been in a wheelchair and be unable to communicate. Foulds and Wilson made the tough decision to take Brooklyn off the machines and let her pass peacefully. “That was a hard day,” says Foulds. “It was hard, and it’s still hard when I think about it. But I know it was a decision that was right. I remember the day Brooklyn passed and we were all consumed with her, and then there was a moment we realized we still had Isabella, that we had another baby.” That began a stretch of 138 days for Isabella in the NICU. Once Foulds was out of hospital she would dutifully make the daily trip to watch over Isabella. If Foulds was lucky it would take 45 minutes to get to RCH. Usually it was more than an hour. “I was so angry at the construction.” When she arrived she’d scour the side streets looking for a place to park that wasn’t going to cost her a month’s wages, often risking a ticket and getting away with it. Before she left she would also have

to ¿nd someone to take care of three-year-old Charlotte. The NICU staff became their friends, their con¿dantes and their fonts of information. One primary nurse came out to Isabella’s recent ¿rst birthday. That got them thinking about what they could do to help the department in return and honour Brooklyn at the same time. At ¿rst they thought of buying a piece of equipment, but realized it would cost too much. So they wondered why not help out other NICU parents like themselves, and established the Brooklyn Wish Fund. “Even if you live in New Westminster there are still expenses every day with a baby in NICU that long,” she says. Foulds, Wilson and the RCH Foundation (RCHF) are looking at all sorts of solutions to easing those logistical costs, such as working with Impark for special daily rates in the hospital lots, transit passes, and gas, transit, food and movie vouchers. Providing child care is another service she hopes the fund will eventually be able to provide so the siblings don’t get lost in all the other worries. “Joel and Tanya are an extraordinary couple,” says Adrienne Bakker, RCHF CEO and president. “Their generosity demonstrates a deep empathy for and commitment to other families who may ¿nd themselves in a similar situation.” Isabella is doing well these days and is a growing girl. For her ¿rst birthday her parents requested guests donate to the fund in lieu of presents. They are hoping, just like Isabella, the fund will grow. “The trust fund was named in honour of Brooklyn, but it’s Isabella that drives us to do this because her being in there for 4 1/2 months, we knew what people were going through and what they needed,” says Foulds.

Arbo said about 800 to 1,000 people show up every week, often depending on when there’s a special event or entertainer.

We live in a rainforest, which is part of the reason why we can grow so much here,” said Arbo.

Since its opening in 2008 it has grown and this year will see an average of about 43 vendors, up from the 38 it averaged last year. “It’s a small increase,” said Jen Arbo, the market’s operations manager. The market, which includes entertainment, runs every Thursday from 3 to 7 p.m. Like last year, the market will

She is leaving to concentrate on her other business concern, Hyack Interactive. However, she plans to stay on as a volunteer, possibly assisting with RCFM’s social media. “The social media I enjoy. We have a very large following on Facebook and Twitter and now we’re on Pinterest which is a visual method of sharing,” said Arbo. She is already grooming her replacement, Jodi Appleton, who has a background in recreational programming.

Arbo says Appleton is organized and “a major farmers market supporter. She’s going to be a real great ¿t.”

Small grants coming The Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) program is coming to New Westminster. The program, which began in 1999, is run by the Vancouver Foundation and Family Services of Greater Vancouver. They provide grants ranging from $50 to $500 to community members who come up with creative ways to strengthen their neighbourhood. In the past it has supported projects like neighbourhood

gardens, block parties, movie nights, craft workshops and other activities. “The Royal City is a perfect candidate for NSG,” said Faye Wightman, president and CEO of the Vancouver Foundation. “New Westminster is growing by leaps and bounds. With dramatic changes at the Quay, new highrises Downtown, and all the expansion activity around the SkyTrain stations, the number of residents is growing. Programs like NSG can help increase their participation in the community.” The deadline to apply for the ¿rst round of grants is June 25. Visit www.vancouverfoundation.ca/nsg.

OPINION

PUBLISHED & PRINTED BY BLACK PRESS LTD. at 7438 Fraser Park Drive, Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9

NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Run for the border

LAST WEEK:

The federal government raised the limit for duty-free goods which can be brought back into Canada from the U.S. in its recent budget. The changes took effect Friday. While many consumers are happy, this is not good news for many businesses. The much higher exemptions take effect just as the summer travel season begins — a time when many people cross the border. All levels of government need to take more responsibility for aiding and abetting cross-border shopping. Ottawa didn’t have to bring in these much higher exemptions this year. You can now bring back $800 worth of goods after a 48-hour stay. There was no pressing demand for the change. It is proof once again that Ottawa is badly out of touch with B.C. However, the provincial and local governments also play a big part in driving shoppers out of the country. The ridiculous price of gas, hovering at close to $1.45 a litre despite the fact that oil prices have fallen by 20 per cent in the past few months, is due almost solely to high taxes. TransLink charges 17 cents per litre on gas — yet its take from fuel tax is starting to fall because more and more people are going elsewhere to get gas. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation recently pointed out that fuel taxes alone take $1 billion out of the economy in Metro Vancouver alone. All of this happens as incomes stagnate. The average B.C. income in 2010 was $46,379, almost $18,000 less than the average income in Alberta. Most people have seen little in the way of a wage boost since 2010, yet governments at all levels are digging deeper in our pockets. The imposition of the HST was another assault on wallets and drove even more people south. It’s no wonder many people shop across the border. It’s one of the few ways left open to them to save money. – Black Press

Chaos reigns in wake of HST VICTORIA – The old saying goes that if you like sausages and laws, you shouldn’t watch either one being made. The legislature’s sausage factory worked overtime to crank out a pile of legislative change before the government choked off debate and shut it down for the summer. This is after a dozen complicated bills were stuffed into the hopper in the ¿nal month. For the ¿rst time in B.C. history, debate was carried on in three separate chambers to try to get through it all. It created a chaotic scene, with politicians and reporters dashing around trying to create the impression they were on top of it all. The NDP opposition screamed bloody murder about this travesty, especially as the clock ran down last week and bills were assigned a token 30 or 45 minutes to meet the B.C. Liberal government’s arbitrary deadline. Alas, what little time was allowed for the opposition to question legislation was largely

frittered away with the usual partisan sniping that substitutes for alternative ideas. The good news is that this mad rush wasn’t a calculated scheme to ram through unpopular, unfair measures. Quite the contrary. The B.C. Liberal government’s back is to the wall, trying to do what the public and circumstances demand and save its own skin. Here’s a partial list of the marching orders. Get rid of the harmonized sales tax and bring back a computerized version of the old, inef¿cient provincial sales tax. Unclog the court system, which has become so constipated that a Stanley Cup riot fool can’t even plead guilty in a reasonable time. And ¿nd a way to make our growing population of urban

anarchists and assorted other deadbeats pay to ride transit. The HST exercise continues to exact its cost. The unprecedented job of creating a modern system for the archaic sales tax was the main cause of the legislative logjam, tying up government lawyers and delaying drafting of other bills. Small businesses that paid $3,000 to convert to HST get to pay another $3,000 to go back, and we had all better hope the new computer software works. Speaking of computers, one of the laws passed amid the shouting is one that establishes an online system for disputing traf¿c tickets. Police will print out tickets from their cars instead of hand-writing them, and drivers will have an alternative way to argue about whether they really ran that red light. Fighting a ticket in court now takes seven to 18 months, tying up judges, court registry staff and police. An administrative system won’t keep them all out of court, but the government hopes to reduce

the average resolution time to 90 days and save $8 million a year or more. A similar administrative system is being established for small civil claims and strata property disputes. Some legislation is to ¿x earlier screw-ups. A judge tossed out B.C.’s most heavy-handed administrative penalties for failing a roadside blood alcohol test, so the government brought in a new version that allows for another administrative appeal. The mistake of making transit operate on a poorly policed “honour system” goes back to Social Credit days. There is ¿nally a system to enforce collection of ¿nes, on those rare occasions when someone is ticketed for taking a free ride. Even with the last-minute rush, four bills couldn’t be rammed through. Since the legislature will almost certainly have to be recalled to impose a contract on teachers this fall, the government would do well to provide a couple of weeks for orderly debate at that time.

COMMENT A two-lane Pattullo Bridge could serve both cities Re: Six-lane Pattullo Bridge vital: forum (NewsLeader, May 30) It is ironic that Paul Lee, the City of Surrey’s transportation manager, says “...this bridge is essential.” And, “If these connections are not made, traf¿c and trucks will in¿ltrate Surrey’s neighbourhoods.” Well, duh! Does he not think New Westminster is facing the same problem? Surrey, however was built up long after the advent of motor vehicles. New West was not. Surrey has loads of wide major streets. New West does not. TransLink’s proposed sixlane replacement bridge is meant to funnel truck traf¿c from Deltaport, over the South Fraser Perimeter Road, to the Tri-Cities area via the streets of New Westminster. This traf¿c, probably, is going to the CPR container terminal at Pitt Meadows, and also over the Port Mann Bridge to the CNR terminal east of Port Mann, as implied in the article. Gradient considerations prevent the SFPR connecting directly with the Port Mann Bridge. Now we are told that of the nearly half a million vehicles a day passing through New West, only 30 per cent of them have “business” in New West. Presumably that includes residents doing shopping or working on either side of the existing Pattullo Bridge. Admittedly not all pass over the Pattullo, but a large number do. How, then, can these various needs be met? Obviously the character of New West has changed since the Pattullo was built. It was a market centre for the valley in 1936-37. It is now a bedroom suburb (largely) for Vancouver. As city engineering director Jim Lowrie says in the article: “Would you put a six-lane bridge there today?” To me it’s obvious: No. There are three needs: freight movement, commuting and local traf¿c. In the article, a Mr. Magnan of the Lower Mainland Chambers Transportation Panel states the railway bridge also must be replaced. Surely a new doubletracked RR bridge and some related railway upgrades could take most of the freight traf¿c off the roads and thus off the Pattullo. This solves one need. Alternatively, why not barge the trucks or containers from Delta to

Coquitlam? Commuting is far better served by transit than individual vehicles. The money will be better spent on new or upgraded commuter rail or even rapid bus service than a six-lane Pattullo. OK, so what about those local folks? The ones who actually need the Pattullo Bridge? Well, the bridge is already there! At that meeting they said it would cost about $200 million to ¿x it, against almost $1 billion for its replacement. If we keep the existing Pattullo, reduce it to two lanes, with generous bicycle and pedestrian sidewalks, and prohibit trucks over ¿ve tons, the renovated bridge should last quite a while. It will serve the needs of North Surrey and New West. At the same time, connect the SFPR to a new crossing to connect with Coquitlam’s King Edward Street “bridge to nowhere” and to Highway 1 at that point. Re-install the existing “old” Port Mann Bridge here if possible. Stranger engineering feats have been done. Come to think of it, since the truck traf¿c will have largely gone to the railway, maybe the amount remaining on the roads would be manageable by the existing streets, perhaps in Surrey? Colin Dover New Westminster

WHO NEEDS A HUGE PATTULLO BRIDGE? Surrey and New Westminster are two cities directly affected by TransLink’s plans for the Pattullo Bridge. Currently, these plans largely reÀect Surrey’s preference to replace the existing four-lane bridge with a new six-lane bridge. A six-lane Pattullo is not the only solution, nor is it even a right solution for Surrey’s transportation needs. Today, cars and trucks are stuck in traf¿c for two to three blocks on the streets of New Westminster before reaching the north end of the four-lane Pattullo. With a new bridge, the traf¿c jams will extend ¿ve to six blocks. Besides being of little help for Surrey, a six-lane Pattullo has the potential to have a devastating effect on livability for New Westminster. Let me put this situation in perspective. How many Surrey residents live between the Pattullo Bridge and 120th Street in Surrey? Very few, because this is a predominantly

industrial and commercial area. But in a similar area of New Westminster, you will ¿nd thousands of homes, schools, medical of¿ces and places of worship right on the streets where hundreds of thousands (yes, that many!) vehicles will congest local traf¿c, idle and pollute if TransLink builds the six-lane Pattullo. Fortunately, better solutions are possible for both cities. 1. Properly connect South Fraser Perimeter Road to Highway 1. 2. Improve entry points to increase capacity of the Queensborough Bridge. 3. Build a new bridge to connect Surrey with United Boulevard in Coquitlam. These improvements will effectively resolve Surrey’s transportation issues without destroying livability in New West. Vladimir Krasnogor New Westminster

AN ALTERNATIVE TAKE Re: Time to start planning a new option (Column, June 1) I read Chris Bryan’s column on what to do about the dilapidated and inadequate Pattullo Bridge. In 2002, I was hired by TransLink to prepare a preliminary assessment of the feasibility of a six-lane tunnel to replace the bridge. The steeply rising bluffs on both sides of the Fraser River pose major engineering challenges for a tunnel to connect with the existing arterial roads. Whether a new bridge or a tunnel is built, I consider the extension of McBride northward to connect with the TransCanada Highway at the Cariboo interchange to be essential to avoid overwhelming the local road network in New Westminster and Burnaby. A cut-and-cover tunnel similar to the Cassiar Connector would enable this through traf¿c to have little impact on the East Burnaby neighbourhood. Failing this con¿guration, the 10-lane capacity of the new Port Mann Bridge may allow the Pattullo Bridge to be demolished and not replaced. This alternative would certainly eliminate rat-running traf¿c in New Westminster and Burnaby. Derek Wilson P. Eng. [ret’d.], Port Moody

BLACK PRESS

Anti-bullying plan includes whistle-blowing phone app Focus of $2 million strategy on training, not legislation Jeff Nagel jnagel@blackpress.ca

A new provincial anti-bullying strategy promises more training to improve the climate in schools and a new smartphone app that aims to make it easier for students to anonymously report tormenters. Premier Christy Clark unveiled the plan in Surrey last Friday, pledging $2 million for the new initiatives she said will bring a coordinated approach to the issue in all school districts. She said the focus is on providing better tools to help teachers recognize bullying and deal with conÀicts appropriately. “We’re not focusing on the hammer legislative approach,” Clark said. “You can’t make a law that gets rid of bullying.” The plan mandates dedicated safe school coordinators in every district and calls for at least one professional development day per year to be devoted to anti-bullying, although that depends on talks with the B.C. Teachers Federation. Anti-bullying training will focus on elementary schools initially, while threat and risk assessment training will be geared to middle and secondary schools. The strategy is dubbed ERASE – Expect Respect and a Safe Education. But Floyd Van Beek, a Grade 12 student at South Delta Secondary School, said it could have gone farther to battle homophobic bullying in schools, noting there is no speci¿c training module set out for that issue. “It’s a step in the right direction,” he said. Grade 10 student Rachel Garrett, who is with Van Beek on the SDSS Alliance club that ¿ghts homophobia in the school, agreed and praised the plan for a phone app. “A lot of kids aren’t quite con¿dent enough to put their name forward,” Garrett said. “If they have an anonymous way to do that it’s going to be a lot easier.” Clark said gay and lesbian students are more likely to be bullied and commit suicide, but added “bullying is bullying and it shouldn’t happen to any child for any reason.” The plan also requires all districts to have have stronger codes of conduct that bar discrimination on the basis of race, religion, sexual orientation and other criteria in line with the Human Rights Act. Education Minister George Abbott said a quarter of school districts have conduct codes that speci¿cally refer to sexual orientation. Others, he said, believe it’s important not to elevate one type of bullying over another, adding the province isn’t telling them what to do, provided all the discrimination criteria are covered.

Top cop urges Mounties to weather â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stormâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of criticism More misconduct revelations to rock RCMP: Leaked memo Jeff Nagel jnagel@blackpress.ca

A leaked memo from RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson has warned the Mounties will soon be rocked by more revelations of ofÂżcer misconduct on the heels of the crisis over the transfer to B.C. of a disgraced ofÂżcer from Alberta. The forceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head said Sgt. Donald Ray â&#x20AC;&#x201C; internally found guilty of sexual misconduct with female ofÂżcers but not Âżred and reportedly set to work in a federal RCMP ofÂżce in Surrey â&#x20AC;&#x201C; engaged in â&#x20AC;&#x153;outrageous behaviourâ&#x20AC;? that put a â&#x20AC;&#x153;sad stain on our reputationâ&#x20AC;? and resulted in understandable concern from the provincial government. Paulsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s May 28 email warns members of the force across Canada that more recent and historical cases will soon surface in the media containing â&#x20AC;&#x153;salacious and troubling details of member misconductâ&#x20AC;? that will bring more criticism. He urged them to â&#x20AC;&#x153;hang in thereâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;weather this stormâ&#x20AC;? while working together to change the way police address conduct and discipline. Paulson pledged to have future inter-divisional discipline transfers documented for review and consultations when appropriate.

OUR CANADA MAGAZINE

RCMP Sgt. Donald Ray, guilty of having sex with subordinate female officers and alcohol misconduct on the job in Alberta, has been transferred to B.C. and is expected to work at a federal RCMP ofĂ&#x20AC;ce in Surrey.

Paulson also warned of more details coming on misconduct allegations against investigators in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Surrey Sixâ&#x20AC;? murder case, saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;here again, the incredible and successful work of the majority of our employees will be tarnished by the allegations against a few.â&#x20AC;? OfÂżcers investigating the gangland slaying face accusations that include sex with a gangsterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girlfriend who is also a witness, Âżling false overtime, and trying to mislead misconduct investigators. Paulson said policing is difÂżcult work that takes a toll that can play out in sub-standard conduct, sometimes due to alcohol, stress or other dependencies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I need you to take responsibility for yourself, and for your colleagues,â&#x20AC;? he said, urging those who cannot

conduct themselves professionally to leave the organization. SFU criminologist Rob Gordon said Paulson clearly expected the memo to become public, calling it a deliberate and â&#x20AC;&#x153;smartâ&#x20AC;? move to get in front of what emerges next. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now bracing for something even more horrible than has hit them so far,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This suggests weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on track for another psycho-sexual drama.â&#x20AC;? Rayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transfer to B.C. took place without Paulsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knowledge but was accepted by the RCMP E Divisionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new leader, Deputy Commissioner Craig Callens. Gordon said Callens should have refused to have E Division accept Ray, in light of a barrage of RCMP scandals centred on this province â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from Robert Dziekanskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tasering death at Vancouver International Airport to a class action lawsuit of female ofÂżcers alleging sexual harassment. In any other organization, Gordon said, Ray would be Âżred with cause, but the RCMP agreed to keep him, likely as a negotiated deal with Rayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer that avoided the need to make female witnesses testify against him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the optics [of the transfer] where they fell down very badly.â&#x20AC;? Gordon said Paulsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memo also indicates thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no current mechanism to review inter-divisional transfers due to discipline. He said Paulsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s direction to be professional or get out set a critical tone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this marks the beginning of a new openness and transparency thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some hope for the force,â&#x20AC;? Gordon said, but added a crisis of morale may already be underway that will be difÂżcult to overcome.

My name is Alex. I have been delivering the NewsLeader for 4 years and prior to that my sisters had the route. Our family has been delivering the NewLeader in New Westminster for almost 10 years. I enjoy doing my route as it gives me spending money to buy lunches at school and cool Canucks stuff. I love the Vancouver Canucks and enjoy watching WWE, playing games on the computer and hanging out with my friends. In the near future, I will be graduating and I hope to work in a sports store selling Canucks things. Go Canucks Go!

There will be a great range of upbeat music featured on the Sapperton Day Street Festival main stage. FACEPLANTS

Formed in 2007, the Faceplants, from Coquitlam, have been working hard on their chops, playing as many live shows as possible and writing some catchy tunes that have started to take hold of young music fans in the province. Citing inĂ&#x20AC;uences such as the The Police, Marianas Trench, and the Mad Caddies, the Faceplants have created their own mix of upbeat and fresh party music. While some ska/punk bands get tied up in crafting some sort of heavy message, the Faceplants message is simple and clear: â&#x20AC;&#x153;we are here to party.â&#x20AC;? The Faceplants were B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top teen band 2009 and won the 99.3 The Foxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vancouver Seeds contest in 2009. REAL CANADIAN ROCK BAND

He placed second in the IPE Youth Talent Competition 2010, top ten in B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Teen Band 2010 and had his original song featured on K96.3 Radioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Emerging Artist Compilation 2010 alongside We Are The City and Fields Of Green.

7337 Ed Edmonds d St St., B Burnaby b ((across ffrom V Value l Vill Village) MON-FRI: NOON-7 • SAT: 10-5 • WWW.JOURNEYHOMETHRIFT.CA ICBC’s interactive map shows the frequency of crashes at locations across the city, from 2007-2011. In New Westminster, the worst crash location on the map is at the onramp to Highway 1 at Brunette Avenue.

Interactive maps show B.C.’s worst crash locations ICBC’s new online tool displays collision data for each city Jeff Nagel jnagel@blackpress.ca

Anyone who’s wondered which B.C. intersections are the most dangerous to drive, cycle or walk through can now check online for a new tool. ICBC has unveiled interactive maps that display its crash data going back up to ¿ve years for every local city. Many of the worst sites in the Lower Mainland are at on- and off-ramps along Highway 1, although other severely crash-prone spots include intersections on King George Highway in Surrey and along heavily traveled north-south corridors in Vancouver. A city menu lets users choose the community they want to view and the map with crash sites is then displayed, along with a list of intersections with the highest crash counts. Users can view the mapped crash data from any one of the past ¿ve years, or all the years combined. They can also choose to see just casualty crashes, not ones that only caused property damage. Separate maps prepared by ICBC show data on crashes involving cyclists or pedestrians. “You can really break it down to the area you live in,” ICBC spokesman Adam Grossman said. “So hopefully a lot of

people ¿nd it useful.” He said the auto insurer gets many requests for that data already and decided to make it freely available to save staff and requesters time. “We’re looking for ways to make our information more transparent and acccessible.” Grossman added the data

doesn’t mean certain intersections themselves are dangerous because of their design. “It really comes down to driver behaviour at the end of the day,” he said. For the crash maps, see http:// www.icbc.com/about-ICBC/ news_room/icbc_facts twitter.com/@jeffnagel

Dal Richards in New West Friday Dal Richards and his orchestra of talented musicians are returning to New Westminster at The Columbia on Friday, June 8. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Âżrst time in more than 10 years that Richards has performed at this venue. For Richards, who is closing in on 80 years as a working musician, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a long time coming.â&#x20AC;? Dal Richards set the world record recently for longest lapsed time between performances by a high school band leader when he returned to Magee Secondary school to lift his baton, almost 75 years after he founded the band for his graduation in May 1937. Still one of the hardest working professionals in the music scene, the 94-year-old musician says he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see himself slowing down anytime soon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still having fun leading the band and entertaining British Columbians, and I plan to keep going as long as I can.â&#x20AC;? Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show is produced by Severin Morin, a long-time friend of Richards, to raise awareness and funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Canada.

A28 NewsLeader Wednesday, June 6, 2012

Hyack track fifth in B.C. Grant Granger ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

Manisha Kandola’s father was driving her to practice one day listening to a radio talk show. The discussion was about the B.C. Teachers Federation vote to withdraw extracurricular volunteer activities to protest contract negotiations with the provincial government. The decision put the 2012 B.C. high school track and ¿eld championships in jeopardy. In grades 10 and 11, Kandola had come in sixth in the high jump at the provincials held every ¿rst weekend in June at Swangard Stadium. She had an intense desire to take another crack at reaching the podium. “I remember becoming so mad and thinking in my head that that was the one [championship], especially in Grade 12, that was the one thing I was looking forward to. And if it didn’t go I would have gone insane,” said Kandola. Fortunately for her, and the rest of the New Westminster Hyacks, the championships went ahead anyway. She not only won the high jump, but for the ¿rst time in 38 years, NWSS ¿nished in the top ¿ve. NWSS ¿nished ¿fth in the overall standings with 49 points, and came sixth in the women’s with 37 points. It’s the same placing the school accomplished in 1973 and ’74. It has had three other top 10 ¿nishes, seventh in 1975, eighth in 1986 and sixth in 1991. Kandola’s win was the ¿rst for a New West athlete at the championships since Krista Woodward won the javelin in 2002. Kandola made it over the bar at 1.60 metres. That tied her with two others, but she took fewer jumps to do it so was awarded ¿rst place. “When we were jumping 1.60, I was thinking if I miss this height then I’ve completely missed my chance,” said Kandola, who will continue her track and ¿eld endeavours with the UBC team next year. But she did make it, and the bar was raised to 1.65. She knew she had the advantage on the other two, and when both missed their third attempts before she took hers, she looked over at a friend and said, “Did I just win that?”

Yes she did. That gave her the satisfaction of saying to herself, “As much as I want to clear this, either way I’ve got it.” The most intriguing NWSS result may have been Raquel Tjernagel coming in second in the women’s 400 metres in 56.40 seconds just .04 behind winner Cheyanne Tunti of Surrey’s Kwantlen Park. It was an impressive result for the tiny Grade 9 runner, who just joined a track team, the Cheetahs, this year. Prior to that her only track experience had been running for Lord Tweedsmuir elementary.” “I didn’t expect to ¿nish second. I was just trying to make it to the ¿nal, I was thinking seventh. It’s exciting,” said Tjernagel after getting a congratulatory hug from long-time NWSS track coach Christine McNulty. “I’ve been playing soccer, but now I’m thinking track. I’m not sure yet.” NWSS’s Natasha Lazecki had a good day in the pits. She jumped 5.17 metres in the long jump to ¿nish second, and 10.76 metres in the triple jump to place sixth. Simran Rai of the Hyacks was sixth in the women’s 1,500 metre race walk with a time of 8:14.68. The Hyacks’ Hannah Dixon came in ninth in the long jump (4.85 metres) and 15th in the javelin (26.81 metres). The previous weekend, Dixon was sixth in the heptathlon held in Abbotsford. Tiana Chong was 12th in the long jump (9.86 metres). On the boys side, Bogdan Pavel also reached the podium by coming in third in the 110-metre hurdles in 15.59, less than half a second behind the winner. Mihailo Stephanovic came seventh in the same race in 16.15. Stephanovic also ¿nished ¿fth in the men’s triple jump (12.68 metres).

Top: New Westminster’s Manisha Kandola won the high jump at the B.C. high school track and Àeld championships at Swangard Stadium on Saturday. Middle: Grade 9 Raquel Tjernagel (middle) gets edged out at the Ànish line in the women’s 400 metres Ànal. Left: Natasha Lazecki was second in the long jump.

EDUCATION

Become a Psychiatric Nurse in your own community There is an urgent need for more Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPN), particularly outside the urban areas of the province. And with the workforce aging – the average age of a Registered Psychiatric Nurse in BC is 47 years – the number of retirees from the profession is exceeding the number of graduates. Entry-level earnings start at $30.79/hour to $40.42/hour. Train Locally – The only program of its kind in BC, students can learn within their local communities via distance education, local and/or regional clinical placements, and some regional classroom delivery. This 23 month program is accredited by the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of BC (CRPNBC). Government student loans, Employment & Labour Market Services (ELMS), band funding & other financing options available to qualified applicants.
