Getting the line on real-time crime NWPD joins forces with CrimeReports.com to provide online updates Grant Granger

ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

New Westminster residents can now find out what kind of crime is happening in their neighbourhoods with a few clicks of the mouse. The city’s police department has hooked up with CrimeReports. com, which is operated by Utahbased Public Engines, to provide up-to-date statistics and incident information to the public.

“From a community policing perspective the more information we can put in the public’s hands the better,” said NWPD Staff Sgt. Paul Hyland. “At the end of the day the public has the right to be informed, so the more information we can arm them with, the more vigilant they can be and check their community. The more engaged we can get them to be at all levels the more successful we’re going to be.” Hyland said if there’s a rash of crime in an area, residents can be more vigilant and proactive. The public can access the data

TransLink’s decision Wednesday to abandon its plans to eliminate its TaxiSaver voucher program shows “grey power is alive, well and working,” says a Thornebridge Gardens resident who organized a campaign opposed to eliminating the coupons. Two months ago, TransLink announced it was going to phase out the program, which let people eligible for HandyDart purchase vouchers to take taxis at half price. Many seniors must take taxis when HandyDart isn’t available, said Thornebridge resident Betty Newton. “There’s a lot of relief here to hear they’ve cancelled the cancellation [of the TaxiSaver],” said Newton. “It’s extremely important because there are a number of people here who do not use HandyDart at all and use the TaxiSavers solely. please see GrEy, a3

Kainth named executive director

summerfest returns tO GrImstOn park

Tourism New Westminster has named Tej Kainth as its executive director. For the past five years she has served as the organization’s marketing and visitor centre coordinator. Along with coordinating the visitors centre, Kainth has put together a visitors guide and developed the Tourism New Westminster website. She also was behind the creation of NEXT New West, a networking group for young professionals in the city. “With a track record of success, Tej Kainth is more than ready to take on her new position,” said Tourism New Westminster president Kathy MacKerricher in a press release. “Her passion, dedication and tireless work promoting New Westminster make her an excellent ambassador at an exciting time in our city’s history.” The release said in her new role Kaith will pursue implementation of a two per cent hotel room tax to fund marketing and tourism projects, develop a five-year business plan, and develop other tourism and marketing activities.

“Some of them are vision-impaired people who are unsteady on their feet and find the TaxiSavers are the only way to go.” Following the original decision, Thornebridge residents let TransLink know their concerns, with Newton voicing them at TransLink’s annual general meeting. When it decided to hold off on implementing the change, the company’s access transit manager, Peter Hill, visited Thornebridge to listen to nearly 60 residents give their opinions. Newton said Hill came because the residents had sent more emails and letters to TransLink on the subject than any other seniors residence in the area. “He certainly listened to anybody who wanted to take the microphone and put their personal slant on why they needed to keep the TaxiSavers,” said Newton. “I don’t know if we had a big influence on [the latest decision], but certainly the residents got behind the move to protest and made our thoughts known. Grey power is alive, well and working.” Despite the good news, Newton has some concerns because TransLink board chair Nancy Olewiler said the company is seeking to incorporate TaxiSavers with its upcoming rollout of the Compass smart card. “I am going to be vigilant in watching what happens in another three months or so after the smoke dies down,” said Newton. “I don’t know about [the Compass card integration] and about how that intends to work.” More than 18,000 HandyDart trip requests were denied last year because the service was oversubscribed, and that’s only got worse this year, said Newton.

Troubled apartment building sold Calgary company buys Cameron St. complex that city has called its top bylaw enforcement priority Grant Granger

TERM DEPOSIT

An apartment building New Westminster’s licensing manager said was the city’s top bylaw enforcement priority in April has been sold. But that doesn’t mean the many concerns about the building will be taken care of, says one of the complex’s residents. The city levied fines and issued compliance orders to fix several maintenance deficiencies at 1210 Cameron St. three months ago. That’s when Acorn Canada, an advocacy group, organized a media tour of the building to demonstrate problems with the plumbing, pests, elevator, safety and the cleanliness of the building. The apartment block was owned by the Sahota family’s Waterfront Developments. Last week, Mainstreet Equity Corp. of Calgary took over ownership of the building, along with another Sahota block across the street at 1211 Cameron. New Westminster licensing manager Keith Coueffin said the previous owners provided

reports on the work that was being carried out, and also hired professionals to do it, at 1210 Cameron. Coueffin said the new owners have indicated they will be carrying on with the program and will submit a detailed remediation plan in a couple of weeks. He added there are also some issues with 1211 Cameron and he will be looking to clarify them with Mainstreet. Acorn Canada, which has an office in New Westminster, says Mainstreet has a reputation for buying up buildings, renovating them and then increasing the rents to a price too high for the current residents to return. “I take an ugly building and put a lot of lipstick on it. I’m like a plastic surgeon,” Mainstreet president and CEO Bob Dhillon told The Globe and Mail in an October 2011 feature on him. “Give it a little liposuction. Some breast implants. I make this old thing look pretty.” Acorn says if Mainstreet carries through with the same formula, New Westminster and the surrounding area will be forced to absorb 60 low-income tenants and there isn’t much of that type of rental stock available. “That’s what we’re worried about. As it is already I’m paying the most for my rent in

the building, close to $1,000,” said Mark Jones. He moved there on Feb. 1, but had to stay in a muchsmaller suite in the building because promised renovations weren’t completed. When he did move into his new suite, although he received new laminate, paint and baseboards, there were wires sticking out, and rodents were still roaming free. He called in a pest control company himself, but “the infestation is so bad it hasn’t worked.” “Now that Mainstreet has taken over I still want these promises to be kept,” said Jones. While the plumbing issues that left most of the tenants without running water for more than two weeks have been corrected, Jones said there are still concerns about such things as a broken intercom, unsafe carpet, and the smell of drugs and animal waste. “It’s not a healthy place to live in,” said Jones. “I’d love to move, but I can’t because I’m stuck on this [oneyear] lease.” Coueffin said there are still some outstanding orders regarding pest control at 1210 Cameron, and 1211 also has some issues the city will be following up with Mainstreet.

There will be 7,000 square feet of photographic and video narration of children’s and teachers’ work from the city of Reggio Emilia, Italy in the exhibition. The Wonder of Learning recounts experiences from infant-toddler centers, preschools and primary schools in Reggio Emilia. The educational and learning approaches used in the exhibit are now being utilized in a growing number of preschools, kindergartens, child care centres and schools in British Columbia. Dr. Carlina Rinaldi, president of Reggio Children in Italy, will make some remarks at the opening gala, which runs from 7 to 10 p.m. on July 18 and is open to the public with tickets costing $30. Organizers are hoping to generate dialogue about early childhood education in the province. “Wonder of Learning is a celebration of children’s capacities, presenting children as capable of exploring the world in ways that captivate the interest and imagination of people of all ages,” said exhibit organizer and Douglas College early childhood education instructor Laurie Kocher in a press release. The exhibit will be open until Dec. 8, Tuesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information go to vancouverreggioconsortium. com.

Crosty starts campaign to stop borrowing bylaw Also upset city imposing limit on opposition forms it will provide

requests to organize a full-out campaign, which he has now taken up. The borrowing from the Municipal Finance Authority can be sent to a city-wide vote if more than 10 per cent of those eligible to cast a ballot in the last civic election sign an “alternative approval process” form. That means 4,528 signatures would be required to be collected before Aug. 7 to force a referendum. The $59 million is for various upcoming projects, including $11 million to help pay for the parking structure to go with the civic centre and office complex. Money to pay for construction of

James Crosty is back on the campaign trail. The former New Westminster mayoral candidate has decided to organize a campaign to oppose the city’s decision to borrow $59 million for various projects and to help finance a commercial office tower it is building in connection with the new civic centre. Crosty appeared before council July 9 to object to the borrowing bylaw, and had been contemplating

the eight-storey office tower will come out of city reserves, which had previously been targeted to pay for the infrastructure projects the city is now borrowing for. “The public has not approved building an office tower on the taxpayers’ backs,” said Crosty last week before deciding to try to collect enough signatures to force a referendum. While it is possible to print the form off of a report on the city’s website, Crosty is upset the city has limited the number of forms a person can pick up from city hall to 25. “It will be challenging to get the 4,500 forms from the city

without paying to print them ourselves,” said Crosty in an email distributed to New Westminster residents. “It is unfortunate that they are taking a further step in stifling democracy by imposing this limit. Now we have to deal with obtaining enough signatures and spend our own money to have enough forms. This is a flawed process.” City clerk Rick Page said in the past when the city has gone through the alternative approval process, there would be requests for one or two copies on the ninepage document at a time. But when somebody came

in and asked for 1,000 the city decided to set a limit of 25 a day per person. “We had to think about what is reasonable,” said Page. “We can’t limit the process. The process is open and has to be transparent, but we’re just trying to make it reasonable for our staff to deal with it.” Crosty is asking those who do go to city hall to pick up 25 forms to drop them off at his office at 239 Sixth St. He also asks people to drop the signed forms there so he can keep count and confirm the signatures from the voters list. twitter.com/lonegrangerbnw

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

NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Housing and affordability

LAST WEEK:

Housing sales are steady in the Fraser Valley, even as they seem to be in a bit more of a decline in Metro Vancouver. Declines in sales activity and prices are more marked in Metro Van, but as neighbourhoods and Lower Mainland cities are so different, it is hard to paint with too broad a brush. Still, a few basic trends seem to be emerging. One is that, despite low interest rates, people seem to be unwilling to pay any more for housing. Prices have been going up for a long time and are now at the point where many working people simply can’t afford to buy. Another trend is an inability to qualify for a mortgage. The federal government has tightened up the amortization period for homes requiring Canada Mortgage and Housing mortgage insurance and that means bigger monthly payments. And that means some people simply can’t get into the market. A third trend is more intangible, but nonetheless valid. People have a sense that the economy isn’t doing nearly as well as it could, and even positive economic news does not entice them to go out and borrow a great deal of money. It’s a mug’s game to predict where the real estate market will go next, and that’s particularly true in this corner of the world. A bubble has been predicted for years. But just when it seems that prices have hit unsustainable levels, they have continued to rise. Yet interest rates have gone about as low as they can go. And this fall they are expected to rise, possibly two points, and there are indications that—failing another major stumble in the economy—the rates will jump another two points next spring. A cooling market seems inevitable. And if that lets more people have the opportunity to buy a decent home, it’s a welcome change. —Black Press

Hitting the information highway VICTORIA – By the time you read this I should be in Vanderhoof, the geographical centre of B.C., to visit relatives. Born in the Okanagan, raised in the Peace country and working for 20 years in Metro Vancouver, I’ve driven from one end of the province to the other more times than I can count. A similar trip last year began just as a huge mudslide was cleared near Chilliwack. Other drives have featured mid-summer hail piled 10 centimetres deep on the Coquihalla, a near miss between two moose in the Pine Pass, plus the usual blizzards and hundreds of traffic jams for construction, accidents and growing urban volume delays. This time I’ve got a new tool on board, the mobile version of DriveBC.ca on my BlackBerry. Launched two years, ago, the mobile site has taken off with the surging popularity of smartphones. In the past year, DriveBC’s online traffic averaged 1.2 million visits a month, about half to the five-year-old desktop site

Tom Fletcher tfletcher@blackpress.ca

and half from mobile users. It’s by far the most popular B.C. government website. I asked DriveBC technical leader Nainesh Agarwal for these stats, and he said even he was surprised by the surge in mobile traffic in recent months. But trying out the mobile site, it’s easy to see the appeal. With a few clicks, the phone displays incident reports and web camera images for my chosen route.

option for drivers to report new problems they encounter. After determining your smartphone’s location, the site displays the name and phone number of the local maintenance contractor who can take the report. For those who haven’t joined the smartphone era, there is an old-fashioned option. Dialing 5-1-1 anywhere in the province gives access to a toll-free line that connects to recorded DriveBC messages. Agarwal said use of that service has been declining as phones with web access become more popular. The 5-1-1 service also requires you to use the keypad to select your route from a numerical list, so drivers would have to pull over rather than breach the new restrictions on using handheld devices while driving. The 5-1-1 system still gets surges of heavy use during major events like the recent flooding. The plan is to upgrade the system to allow voice recognition, so drivers can use headsets to get updates on the move.

Projections out of whack In estimating government revenues in his budget earlier this year, Finance Minister Kevin Falcon predicted natural gas sales would generate $398 million and $846 million in royalties for the next two fiscal years. The underlying premise was that the unit price would increase during the period 20122015. Four months later the unit price has yet to show any real movement upward and Falcon now expects a $200 million revenue shortfall in the current fiscal year. His royalty estimate was based on the advice of natural gas industry representatives. And it’s not the first time they have been overly optimistic about the economic health of their sector. In November 2011, Falcon had to announce a $1.6 billion deficit caused by a gas royalty revenue shortfall. The industry apparently

had previously advised the government that the unit price would triple when in fact it fell dramatically due to a market glut. Yet, despite this experience Falcon again relied on industry sources when estimating gas revenues in his February budget. Other than the fact that their advice hasn’t yet proven out, is it really reasonable to expect industry spokespeople to paint anything but a rosy picture? After all, their first concern is maintaining investor confidence, not avoiding government deficits. Bill Brassington Burnaby

time to act on motorcycle noise Re: Motorcycle noise needs to be curbed There is really no need for New Westminster’s police to test motorcycles for noise. They can enforce Canada’s motor vehicle equipment requirements. The Motor Vehicle Act does not stipulate that the police even have to test motorcycles for noise emissions, let alone only do it at idle. Noise emission testing is optional, not required. They can ticket loud motor vehicles for observed loud operation and for equipment violations. Don’t worry about it, just do it! Larry Deal •••••

Advocates for proper noise controls get stuck on levels. Noise levels should not be enforced, only acts to raise volumes should. Most sources of nuisance motorcycle noise are from low-noise-emission regulated vehicles, operated imprudently, or operated after an act that resulted in raising a volume across all engine speeds. Allow police to use their own way to find these infractions, then have your jurisdiction require a defendant provide proof the modified equipment compared well to the standard muffling performance in order to overturn a charge. A high percentage of defendants would elect to pay the fine, or return the bike to

standard. The threat of being easily called to court, and the inability to “show” the modifications performed noise mitigation as well or better than standard components would act as a strong deterrent to this type of operation behavior. Enforce acts, not levels to be satisfied noise controls are effectively enforced. Gerry Alden •••••

Good luck! Here in what is claimed to be “the beautiful” Napa Valley, it’s loud. We have all kinds of regulations to keep things aesthetically pleasing, but the bike noise is generally ignored by authorities. Strange considering that the bikes have illegal exhaust systems on them and the noise made by the bikes is beyond excessive. If one is unfortunate enough to live near a road or street where the bikes are blasting, it is awful. Also, it will have an effect upon property values as it’s not something one would want to have to endure at home. Bad enough to deal with when traveling.

Metro’s high congestion ranking called deceptive Region rated worst on continent after L.A. Jeff Nagel

jnagel@blackpress.ca

Metro Vancouver is Canada’s most congested urban area and second only to Los Angeles in North America, according to a report. The rankings by GPS maker TomTom – based on data gleaned from the traffic movements of its subscribers – found Vancouver drivers take on average 30 per cent longer to make a trip at congested times than when roads and highways are free flowing. Los Angeles was worst among North American cities – with a 33 per cent delay – while Miami, Seattle, Tampa and San Francisco ranked third through sixth at around 25 per cent. Toronto was ninth at 22 per cent. For Vancouver, TomTom estimated congestion translates into a 34-minute delay for each hour driven in peak periods, adding up to 83 hours over the course of a year for motorists with a 30-minute daily commute. But TransLink spokesman Drew Snider said the findings are deceptive. Metro Vancouver has fewer highways and therefore lower overall traffic speeds than Los Angeles, he said. That means a 10 kilometre per hour

It’s time for you

to go!

reduction in the speed of moving traffic is a bigger proportional delay here compared to U.S. cities with more freeways, giving Vancouver a worse ranking. “We made the choice not to punch freeways through the centre of Vancouver and that’s made the region more livable,” Snider said. He said TransLink is working to expand transit – as well as cycling and pedestrian infrastructure – to offer alternatives to car use in more of the region. SFU City Program director Gordon Price said the rankings more accurately reflect the plight of drivers in areas where cars dominate, but not where transit is frequent and more viable. “Car congestion is not a measure of mobility,” he said. “So long as you have choices, you don’t have to be hung out in traffic.” Price said the region will soon see what a huge increase in highway capacity achieves when the new Port Mann Bridge, expanded Highway 1 and South Fraser Perimeter Road all open. Highway congestion should be cut, at least initially, he said, although he forecasts it will spur more car use and new construction geared for drivers rather than transit, potentially undermining efforts to expand transit

South of the Fraser. He also predicts the tolls on the Port Mann will increase congestion on arteries within Surrey as some drivers seek to avoid paying and more South of Fraser drivers try to stay on their side of the river.

Stinky food waste composters face Metro odour fees Region plans to charge plant operators based on smell

:30

op

en

2 n1

There’s no high-tech smello-meter to precisely gauge industrial stink for the purpose of levying fees. Instead, the measurement depends on finely tuned human schnozzes and an internationally accepted methodology. “It’s not as witchcrafty as people think,” said Metro Vancouver air quality division Ray Robb. He said the first step is to carefully collect a sample of a suspect odour in a special emission bag that’s then sent to an Ontario lab. A panel of eight odour testers is convened there to smell the sample. They’re carefully selected – only 20 per cent of the population has the right nasal sensitivity and the ability to consistently detect odours at a certain intensity. Each panelist then sniffs air coming from three ports – two of which release clean air – and reports if they detect the sample. The sample is at first heavily diluted with clean air and the concentration is steadily increased until all panelists correctly identify the sample twice. The detection threshold – an average of how dilute the sample was when each panelist could sense it – is then expressed as a measurement in odour units.

Industries such as organic composting plants that stink up a local neighbourhood may soon pay fees to Metro Vancouver based on the severity of the odours they emit. The fees are being proposed on a polluter-pay basis to recover what Metro says is hundreds of thousands of dollars a year expended in staff time responding to industrial odour complaints. “What we’re saying is you can emit the odour but we’re going to charge you based on what impact that odour has,” said Ray Robb, Metro’s air quality division manager.

An odour testing panelist sniffs a sample at a lab. Metro Vancouver sends odour samples it needs testing to an Ontario lab.

The details are set out in a Metro discussion paper that proposes to categorize different emitters based on high, medium and low risk of posing an odour problem. Officials will consider how much odour is emitted, as well as how well it is dispersed and the proximity to people it might offend. “If you put a stinky thing in the middle of nowhere and put it up a tall stack and nobody smells it, who cares?” Robb said. “Put that same emission source in the middle of a community – maybe at the bottom of a hill where it drifts up a hillside and ruins everybody’s weekend – that’s a substantially different matter.” Industries deemed high risk – which include compost operations with more than 10,000 cubic metres of compostibles on site and animal renderers – would be charged $5 per year for every person they expose to a specified level of smell. Metro estimates the fees might add up to $110,000 per year for the worst offenders. Robb said about six operators might now be in the high-risk category, but added more new sources are coming on stream as cities divert more organic waste from landfills. Moderate risk facilities would pay a $500 registration fee and have to develop an odour management plan, which could be subject to review and higher fees if Metro decides the odour is offending the community. Low-risk sites face no fees or requirements. Robb said it’s an important issue to address now because Metro’s decision to mandate

curbside organic waste pickup means huge volumes of food waste will be composted at facilities that will be built in the region. Fraser Richmond Soil and Fibre is the existing operator taking some food waste already but more are expected to spring up. All organics will be banned from the region’s dumps and transfer stations by 2015 and residents will be required to put all their food waste in a green bin instead of the garbage. Metro’s discussion paper says smelly emissions can interfere with sleep, add to stress and anxiety, disrupt family barbecues and cause health impacts ranging from nausea and watery eyes to headaches and sore throats. It’s not the first time air quality regulators have tried to slap fees on stinky industries. But a previous effort by Metro to actually regulate or outlaw extreme odours was struck down by an environmental appeal board. This time, the region is just trying to recover costs through fees, rather than trying to enforce limits. Robb said the odour response costs are being unfairly borne either by other air polluters through fees on their contaminants or else by taxpayers. The region is seeking feedback on the plan and the Metro board would have to vote on any bylaw imposing the fees. Metro’s own sewage treatment plants would be exempt from the odour fees. Robb said they aren’t subject to Metro’s air quality rules because they are regulated separately by the province.

VICTORIA – Veteran B.C. Liberal MLA Murray Coell has added his name to the list of politicians retiring from the B.C. legislature, as the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation renewed its criticism of the MLA pension plan. Coell, MLA for Saanich North and the Islands since 1996 will not stand for re-election next spring. Surrey-Tynehead MLA Dave Hayer announced the same decision last week, joining Burnaby-Lougheed MLA Harry Bloy, Vancouver-Fraserview MLA Kash Heed and Kamloops-North Thompson MLA Kevin Krueger in retirement from the B.C. Liberal caucus effective May 2013. On the NDP side, New Westminster MLA Dawn Black and Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows MLA Mike Sather have indicated they will complete their current terms and retire. Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation B.C. director Jordan Bateman used Hayer’s departure as an example of what the CTF calls gold-plated pension payouts available since the MLA plan was reinstated in 2007. The CTF calculates that Hayer will collect $47,600 the year he turns 65, increasing to $62,900 a year by the time he is 80 due to inflation protection. Coell served in several cabinet posts, most recently as labour minister after the 2009 election. Since pensions are based on an MLA’s highest three earning years, Bateman calculates that Coell’s pension will kick in at $89,000 a year. The CTF says taxpayers contribute $4 for each dollar paid by politicians. MLAs must serve six years to be eligible. If defeated before then, they get a 15-month severance. The return of the pension plan for B.C. MLAs was overshadowed by steep pay increases they approved in 2007. The B.C. Liberal government adopted recommendations of an independent committee that increased base pay for a backbench MLA 29 per cent to $98,000, with automatic cost-of-living increases.

Court blocks reversal of roadside drunk driving penalties Affected drivers had hoped to win back fines, other costs

Law Group, said an appeal is under consideration, but added the ruling is a blow to the chances of 700 other clients who had so far signed up for a proposed class action lawsuit. “There are a lot of people who cannot afford to pay $4,000 or $5,000 to get their driver’s licence back,” he said. Solimano said many of the affected drivers had been waiting for possible retroactive relief and still have not yet undertaken costly requirements such as attending a responsible driving program or installing an ignition interlock.

Last weekend Game organized the car show portion of a community event in Vancouver’s Marpole neighbourhoood and the big attraction was a 1916 Ford. “It was like the neatest car I’d ever seen. It was just very plain and simple but it was very unique.” Participants come out for the love of cars, she said. They enjoy showing off their vehicles and all the work they’ve put into them, listening to people’s reactions to their prized possessions, and talking with other like-minded classic car owners. Rather than the usual plaques, the event offers glass trophies to prize winners, said Game, who invited people to cast their votes for the people’s choice award.

The Edmonds City Fair returns to Edmonds Street this Sunday, July 22, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. between Kingsway and Canada Way. As it has for the last couple years, the fair will be combined with the Edmonds Classic Car Show. This time, the cars will be interspersed with the event’s other offerings to spread out the crowds and give people a variety of attractions to look at, said event organizer Paul McDonell. The mainstage will be located at New Vista Place, near the Edmonds fire hall and will feature the annual youth talent show. Also near the Canada Way end of the event site will be the petting zoo, and rides will be located between the fire hall and Mary Avenue. Save-On-Foods is back with a barbecue on Humphries Avenue, with food offered at bargain prices, mainly to reduce waste, said McDonell. The Burnaby RCMP command vehicle will be on site, as will the Tzu Chi Foundation, and possibly ecosculptures from the Burnaby parks department. For years held in Richmond Park (recently renamed Edmonds Park), the event was moved to Edmonds Street a few years ago due to construction of the new Edmonds Community Centre scheduled to open early next year, and redevelopment of the park.

Burnaby and New Westminster youth will be entertaining the community while honing their performance skills at the Edmonds City Fair Talent Search, being held Sunday, July 22, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. About a dozen youth, 19 and under, will perform a variety of acts, from singing and dancing to playing guitar, said Jeff Scheffel, the talent show coordinator. As of Monday, there were 10 entries, with the youngest being a nineyear-old vocalist. “It’s just a great opportunity to get used to performing in front of a large crowd,” Scheffel said. The focus is on fun without a lot of pressure while promoting youth participation and building camaraderie among the young performers. “It’s a good stepping stone [for other events].” Scheffel noted that he has recruited participants who have performed at similar events, and the same could happen for performers at the Edmonds show. Jahlil Dulay, 13, will perform Sunday, for instance, after he was one of the winners of last year’s Burnaby’s

Got Talent show for his hip-hop singing and dancing. Participants will be vying for prizes of gift cards for Lougheed Town Centre. First place gets a $100 card, second gets $75 and the third place prize is a $50 card. The show goes rain or shine at the mainstage on Edmonds

at New Vista Place, near the Edmonds fire hall. Entry is free. The deadline to enter is the end of the day on Wednesday, July 18. To enter, or for more information, call Jeff at 604-294-5533 or email volunteerburnaby@gmail.com.

There was a country tune some years ago which included a line, “I turned to a stranger just like a friend.” The singer, presumably, had become so isolated that he just wanted someone to talk to. One of the key indicators of social maturity is the wisdom to know when it is time to share personal aspects of our life with someone. In general, trust is the key factor. After all, if we are willing to revel something personal, we expect it be held in confidence. There is also a mutuality involved which provides balance to the communication. If, for example, you were to tell a new friend about, say, a problem you were experiencing in your marriage and she told you absolutely nothing about her marriage, challenging or otherwise, you would likely refrain from being so open with her. Trust also relates to the belief that you can expect to receive some intelligent counsel: that the person to whom you are sharing has the capacity to actually be helpful. In the case of your co-workers, these women have likely worked together for some time and it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that you are the newest hire. They already have a measure of trust and they probably socialize outside of work.

You are present during their conversations—presumably in the lunchroom or at your work stations—and so now they are almost certainly experiencing a feelings of inequality with you. (It makes them uncomfortable.) That sense of difference can only be reduced if they believe you trust them enough to share comparable details about your personal life. While it is acceptable not to feel comfortable opening up more to them at this time, you will need to consider being somewhat less guarded should your friendship develop. I would recommend you selectively reveal some aspects of your life—in context with

the discussion—but don’t feel any pressure any divulge secrets or matters which you would not wish shared generally. You say you get along with them—which is great—but in your desire to be accepted, don’t abandon your own standards for what is appropriate to disclose. As the relationship progresses, you may feel more comfortable doing so, but allow trust to grow naturally and you’ll feel better about what you reveal.

Q

: I work in a small office with four other women. We get along well but they talk a lot about their private lives. They expect me to be just as open although I’m not comfortable with being that intimate. What can I say to them?

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.
