Edmonds roadwork to wrap by November Wanda Chow
The seemingly endless construction on Edmonds Street is now just months away from completion, after which the road should be good for decades, says Burnaby’s director of engineering. The roadwork will be completed by November, said Lambert Chu. “We just want to be very mindful of the event coming up on Edmonds so we’re not digging up the road,” he said.
That event would be the Edmonds City Fair and Classic Car Show, taking place on Sunday, July 22, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Edmonds between Kingsway and Canada Way. The contractors will be sweeping the street to accommodate the event, for which the street will be closed. All the work is also being coordinated with the construction of the new Edmonds Community Centre.

At the moment, the road is a rough, bumpy mess, and has been the subject of numerous complaints to Coun. Paul McDonell and other city officials. Portions of the sidewalks are also broken up, awaiting new concrete and curbs. It’s just the latest construction activity on Edmonds which all started last year. A few years ago the city engineering department identified the street as being due for repaving in its capital plan.

As it always does, staff then looked at all utilities underneath, such as water and sewer. “They were not in the best condition and would need to be replaced within the next five years,” or even earlier if there were a leak that needed repairing, Chu explained. Not wanting to break up new pavement to replace all that, the utilities were all replaced first last year, which added to the roughness of the road. please see IDEAl pAvINg, A3

Burnaby artist Jane Appleby knew the day would come when a mural she painted years ago at Charles Rummel Centre would be no more. Still, when she saw crews painting over the colourful work, covering all four exterior walls in a Ted Harrison style, she couldn’t help but be a little sad. After all, it was her first outdoor mural, a work she believes helped her gain confidence and started her on the path toward a career as a professional artist. “I knew it could happen at some point,” Appleby said. “It’s like a family member passing, like it’s their time, somebody that’s lived a good life.” She was also sad for the students at Seaforth elementary who contributed their ideas to the mural as part of a class project 14 years ago. “You can’t keep everything,” she said. see EvEN MuRAlS, A8

Trio lose appeal of grow-op convictions RCMP busted Glen Abbey Drive grow-op in 2007 Wanda Chow
Three people have lost their appeal of convictions stemming from a marijuana grow operation that police found in a North Burnaby house in 2007. Burnaby RCMP executed a warrant alleging electricity theft at 1575 Glen Abbey Drive which had been under surveillance for several hours before police entered on June 22, 2007, according to a recent British Columbia Court of Appeal judgment. When police identified themselves and demanded entry, an Asian woman looked through a window in the door before retreating further into the house. After police rammed the door twice, one of the accused, Peter Duc Mao Thi, opened it and allowed officers to enter. Within minutes, police found an extensive marijuana grow operation in the basement and upstairs of the home. Bagged marijuana was also found in the house. Thi, Jenny Yuk Chun So and Yuk Fong Faye Young were all convicted of production of and possession for the purpose of trafficking a controlled substance in October 2009 and sentenced in April 2010. The trio appealed, with defence counsel arguing that evidence found by
police should have been ruled inadmissible because the police “showed a casual indifference throughout to the rights of the appellants.” The defence also took issue with allowing evidence of police officers (who were not the arresting officers), who were at the house two days later and took down information on the two female appellants’ identities. The trial judge, Provincial Court Judge Frances Howard, decided the evidence was admissible because the officers were legitimately responding to a complaint about possible suspicious activity at the house and left as soon as they determined So and Young were lawfully in the home. Howard determined that all three were aware of and involved with the grow-op. “Given the size of the grow-op in the basement, which was accessible from the garage where her car parked on June 22, 2007, the extent of the grow-op renovations that were occurring on the upper floor where the clones were located, the presence of equipment related to the grow-op in cupboards on the main floor, and the presence of 650 grams of marihuana in the refrigerator to which [So] would have had ready access, it is difficult to imagine how she could not have known about this operation,” Howard said in her reasons for judgment. The Hydro bill was in So’s name and “Any reasonable
person would have known that the many lights, timers, and fans used in the grow-op would require much larger amounts of electricity than the average home of this size.” Howard gave similar reasons for deciding Thi and Young were also guilty. “Finally, I note that Thi was the individual who approached the front door while it was being rammed by the police and stated, “OK, I’ll open the door.” This is an important circumstance. This is not conduct that one would expect from a mere visitor at the residence.” When police visited the house two days after the raid, they found Young and So sweeping the basement, cleaning the area where the grow-op had been found. “Again, this conduct suggests knowledge of and participation in the grow-op itself.” In dismissing the appeal, B.C. Appeal Court Justice John Hall said in his judgment, “With respect, I am in substantial agreement with the compendious reasons of the trial judge finding the evidence discovered to be admissible and finding the case established against the appellants.” Appeal Court Justices Daphne Smith and Kathryn Neilson agreed. Thi, So and Young are out on bail while they await the hearing for the appeal of their sentences, scheduled for Oct. 24.
Continuing roadwork on Edmonds Street will be completed by November, says Burnaby city hall. Before the rough road could be repaved this summer, aging water and sewer lines underneath were replaced last year to prevent having to break up the road again later. Wanda ChOW neWsLeader
Ideal paving weather, city says ⫸
continued from frOnt page
“It’s good planning ... We do that for all our road paving program. It’s our standard practice.” Chu noted that as part of the process, the city also contacts the owners of hydro and telephone ducts to see if they plan to upgrade as well, so it can all happen together. Some overhead hydro lines on the north side of Edmonds between Humphries and Fulton avenues have been moved underground as part of the community centre’s construction, something that’s typically done with larger developments. The concrete sidewalk work will likely be done first, then the roadwork, although the contractor could adjust the timing to meet their scheduling, Chu said. The curbs and base paving should be done in September and October, with final work, including line painting and cleanup happening in November. Summer is the best time for the roadwork, he said. “Paving in the winter is very challenging and at the end of the day will not give us a good product. This is the ideal time for paving work, right temperature and also it cures at a faster rate. You could
almost put traffic on it 12 hours after the blacktop is put down.” For those tired of the road construction, there is a silver lining—once it’s done, it’ll be decades before it’ll have to be done again. According to Chu, the utilities have a service life of about 50 years, while the road likely won’t need resurfacing again for another 20 years. twitter.com/WandaChow

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
It’s come of age It’s worth applauding the latest move by the B.C. provincial government to start the process of freeing up trade in wine between Canada’s provinces. It was, perhaps, naive to have thought that once the federal government eliminated its 1928 prohibition on shipping wines between the provinces, consumers would be able to freely ship their favourite wines between provinces. Instead, jealous of their prerogatives, many provinces responded to the eagerly awaited change, either with regulations nearly as restrictive as the now defunct prohibition-era law, or by setting up committees to study what they should do. Even B.C., where both the ruling Liberal Party and the opposition NDP had spoken out in favour of eliminating the federal prohibition, government responded to the news that parliament had passed Bill C-311 with regulations limiting the quantity of wine a person could bring into the province, and outright forbidding Internet sales and shipping. That changed last week, when Rich Coleman, minister responsible for liquor, announced that B.C. was opening its borders to tariff-free direct shipping of wines for personal consumption, as long as they were grown and produced in the shipping province. The province can only regulate incoming shipments, so B.C. wineries are still unable to ship to other provinces; while it may take a few weeks, B.C. has boldly stepped away from the pack. “Today, we encourage other jurisdictions to take immediate steps to reciprocate by opening up their borders and allow all Canadians to order wine over the Internet,” said Coleman. One can only hope that B.C.’s leadership in this area will encourage other provinces to follow the same path. —Black Press

Good houseguests, and the other kind It’s summer and herds of houseguests are migrating across Canada! Are you conflicted about houseguests? So glad to see them arrive, and so glad to see them leave? But only if they have stayed too long. How long is too long? A month is too long. Three weeks is too long. The old saying is, “houseguests are like fish, after three days throw them out.” Not always true or possible. I want people to stay in my home, and I make them welcome when they do. It’s a good way to spend time together and get to know each other well. But there’s always a ”but” about houseguests, isn’t there? Introduce the subject at a book club or coffee klatch, and there will be endless tales of the houseguests from hell: fussy eaters, smokers, over-perfumed aunties, advice-givers, and long-winded raconteurs. There’s the single-topic houseguest: back pain, cute little kitty cats, American politics, golf—all viable topics in the short form. We’ve had guests stay for two weeks and were still sorry to

Privacy is precious, more so as you see it vanish when a houseguest shares your living room, computer, breakfast counter and sundeck. The early risers get up at dawn, and the sleepers sleep on and on. You may have to trim your conversation. Talk to your spouse about drinking too much at the barbecue? Not a chance. That will have to simmer until bedtime. Bring up the car and its lack of gas with your teenage son? Nope. That’s a scene the houseguests don’t need to witness. And you can’t laze around in your muu-muu or old cargo pants eating popcorn and watching reruns of The Big Bang Theory either. The bathroom door must

always be shut and locked so the dog can’t nose it open at the wrong time. I prepare a meal for houseguests whereas on our own we might have leftovers, BLTs, or “something from the freezer.” We adjust readily to company, but not for too long. Houseguests are encouraged to pitch in. Anyone can sweep the kitchen floor or deck, brush the cats, collect the newspapers, or clear the table. They are welcome to make themselves a drink or a snack at any time. The longer they stay the more I want them to make their own morning coffee or breakfast. Feel free! Feel free to order in Thai food or pizza one night for us all. And we know plenty of good restaurants for a meal out together. I like independent visitors, intrepid tourists who venture out by day. Sometimes we go together, show them SkyTrain and sightseeing and shopping. We go up Grouse Mountain, then to a concert, street festival, or community market. But the houseguest that sits in the living room waiting to be entertained is a burden.
I still have my normal life to do: bills to pay, garden to weed, writing, cooking, and putting my feet up for 30 minutes to read a book! I love houseguests who value quiet for part of the day, and ones who play cards or watch a hockey game at night. But not for too long. What’s the protocol for guests with gifts? Don’t overdo it. Don’t bring your entire fridge because “it would just go bad.” Treats are good: chocolate, baking, salmon, jars of jam. We never complain about a houseguest with a bottle of single malt Scotch. As we travel frequently, and stay with friends or family, we try to be easy houseguests. We aim for short and joyous visits. I wonder what they say about us as we pull out of the driveway? “Thank God they’re gone,” or “that was fun. I’m so glad they came.” After this column I may find out! Anne Hopkinson is a Burnaby resident still working on the three Rs: reading, writing, and rambling.

COMMENT Sharks play key role as predators Re: A case for shark finning (Letters, NewsLeader, July 18) Mr. Ho’s five questions can be boiled down to two words: uninformed and anthropocentric. He is correct in only one thing, that he is no scientist. Sharks are apex predators. Mr. Ho’s simplistic view is: “More predators, less prey.” What he does not understand is that predators come in several trophic levels, i.e. there is more than one level of predators. The sharks, being top predators, prey upon the second and third level predators only, which in turn prey upon the fourth and fifth level predators, which are also prey. So if the sharks are wiped out, the second and third level predators proliferate and over-prey upon the fourth and fifth level fish, and the entire ecosystem could collapse. Secondly, sharks have extremely low reproductive rates. While other fish lay thousands of eggs every year, most sharks lay less than 10 eggs once every two to four years. Plus, some sharks do not even reach sexual maturity until age 10 or even 20. If we kill them in such huge numbers, there is no way for certain species to recover. Third, of the 400 or so species of sharks, at least 50 are classified endangered. Some report up to 200 species. Shark finners are by and large illegal poachers, who don’t care a hoot which species to target. So, short of a fin-by-fin DNA analysis, there is no way to know which fin in Chinatown belongs to which species. May I ask if Mr. Ho is going to foot the bill, or the city of Burnaby, or Richmond, or Vancouver? Fourth, all the existing laws are against shark finning, shark fin consumption and the shark fin trade. CITES (Convention on the International Trade of Endangered Species) does not allow import/export of endangered species. The Canadian WAPITI law (Wild Animals and Plants Protection and the International and Interprovincial Trade Act) does not allow the trading of endangered species products within Canada. The UN Food and Agricultural Organization specifically bans shark finning,
as does the Canadian Fisheries Act. So, Burnaby, Richmond and Vancouver currently allowing the shark-fin trade, when the chances are high that any given fin could have come from an endangered species, is in fact a violation of all these laws, including Canada’s own. Both Mr. Ho and I are of Chinese extraction. The readers will just have to decide whom to believe. Anthony Marr Founder and President Heal Our Planet Earth (HOPE) Global Anti-Hunting Coalition (GAHC)
Revolting pRactice I had to respond to Mr. Ho’s very disturbing letter. Mr. Ho admits he is not a scientist, yet he advocates for a continuation of “shark finning.” Does Mr. Ho understand that many intelligent people believe finning is detrimental to the health of the oceans? Apparently, Mr. Ho has as little concern for the health of the oceans as he has for the methods used to obtain the fins of sharks, such as slicing off the fins and discarding the mortally wounded shark like garbage. What kind of evil, Mr. Ho asks? How about the evil of a human finning a shark without conscience? Absolutely revolting. Robert Harrison Burnaby
campaign financing needs tighteR Rules In recent years, people have decried the decaying state of our democracy. Much of that is partisan hot air, trying to demonize the opposing viewpoint without providing one’s own viewpoint for scrutiny. In all of this, not much is said anymore about campaign financing. Federally, there’s a ban on corporate and union donations to parties, and a strict limit on individual donations. Yet at the provincial and municipal level, there are fewer restrictions, which is how more than half of all BC Liberal fundraising can legally come from corporations. You can bet that these groups don’t fund candidates

Watermelon and parties simply from the goodness of their collective hearts. There’s an assumption that once in power, politicians will remember who funded them and pay them back through legislation and regulation. The United States presents an extreme example of this, where powerful industries control entire congressional delegations that are too afraid to vote against the sources of their campaign dollars. Public policy suffers, because politicians are too busy catering to the special interest groups that got them into their own cushy jobs. Once they leave office, the corporate golden parachute kicks in with a do-nothing job, as a reward for faithful service. Sadly, that service is not to the constituents of their riding or the jurisdiction as a whole. It’s to the funders and wielders of monetary power. We don’t need that kind of government-corporate kickback scheme. Trevor Ritchie, Burnaby

pipeline Risk too gReat
The Keystone Cops, that is how Enbridge’s Edmonton control room staff were described in the enquiry report respecting last year’s major oil spill in Michigan. It went on to say that eight times more oil spilled than if the line had been shut down when the first warning occurred. As much as I would like to gain the obvious economic benefit from construction of the Northern Gateway Pipeline I am not willing to risk the pristine northern environment with the Keystone Cops. I understand that modern technology and engineering methods can greatly reduce the risk of a major oil spill but they can’t do anything about human error. Enbridge appears to have an unfortunate record but they are not the only operator that has had problems. The risk is just too great and this pipeline shouldn’t be built. Garth Evans, Burnaby

“I didn’t expect this particular mural to last as long as it did.” Wendy Scott, Burnaby’s assistant director of recreation, said the centre was very much in need of a new paint job and the mural had probably lasted longer than usual. “It’s an extensive mural, it covers every side of the building which isn’t normally what we do now, to cover the whole building, because it does make it very difficult when the building has to be repainted.” Scott noted that the city does like to create some recognition of such community art projects when they reach the end of their life.

Aging oil pipeline too risky: critics email@example.com
Opponents of Kinder Morgan’s plan to twin its Trans Mountain pipeline through B.C. and load much more crude oil onto tankers say a scathing U.S. report on a 2010 spill there is a wake-up call on the risks the existing line poses. NDP politicians and B.C. environmental groups have seized on U.S. regulators’ findings in the spill at an oil pipeline owned by Enbridge Inc. into Michigan’s Kalamazoo River as grounds to terminate the company’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline to Kitimat. But Sheila Muxlow, a Chilliwack-based activist with the anti-twinnning Pipe Up Network, hopes Kalamazoo also galvanizes B.C. opposition to Kinder Morgan’s project. “The same risks that are raised with the transport of tar sands along an Enbridge pipeline exist for the Kinder Morgan pipeline and are even escalated because they’re using a 60-yearold pipeline,” she said. In Michigan, an aging pipeline burst and the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board blamed Enbridge for a 17-hour delay in acting to contain the breach, which spilled 840,000 gallons of oil sands crude into the Kalamazoo River and triggered a $767-million cleanup. B.C. Premier Christy Clark, accused of fence-sitting and failing to take a stand on Northern Gateway, called the Kalamazoo spill response “disgraceful” and pledged B.C. will intervene in National Energy Board hearings to raise its concerns with Enbridge’s $5.5-billion project there. Federal NDP leader
Thomas Mulcair and B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix both denounced Northern Gateway last week and called on Ottawa and the province to scrap it in light of the Kalamazoo report. Muxlow said Kinder Morgan’s plans have in comparison run under the radar, but added she expects equally vocal opposition to build. “There are major risks for all of us living along the pipeline – not just environmentally but economically as well.” Critics like Muxlow claim increased shipments of bitumen from the oil sands are raising the risk of a pipeline rupture because the heavy crude is mixed with more corrosive diluent (a solvent) to help it flow. Muxlow said she’s disappointed Dix and the provincial NDP have yet to take a stand against the Trans Mountain expansion. “It is a little irresponsible,” she said. “This is a real issue. It’s happening right now – we’re all at risk. It would make sense for hopeful political parties to take a position.” Muxlow wants Kinder Morgan to scrap the $4-billion expansion pipeline and agree to limit the use of the existing pipe to light crude or refined petroleum. She said the Pipe Up group represents concerned people from Hope to Langley, including farmers and other residents worried about potential impacts – including reduced property values – due to the pipeline corridor. Kinder Morgan spokesperson Lexa Hobenshield rejected suggestions the existing pipeline is unsafe. “Age doesn’t necessarily relate to the condition of the pipeline,” she said,
adding the company has a “robust” pipeline integrity process in place. More sensitive tools now exist to monitor pipeline safety, she said. Nor are all portions of the pipeline 60 years old. A new tunnel beneath the Fraser River was drilled in 2002 to improve the pipeline’s chances PLEASE READ THE FINE PRINT: Offers valid until July 31, 2012.

Lakers working overtime The Burnaby Lakers scored early and often, but then the Nanaimo Timbermen scored late and often. Fortunately for the Lakers they scored the two last goals to edge the visiting T-men 14-12 in overtime at Bill Copeland Arena last Friday. It was an important victory for the hometown team because it gave Burnaby a 7-5-2 record and kept Nanaimo (6-6-1) at bay three points back. The Lakers headed into play Thursday in a tie with Coquitlam (8-6-0) and Victoria (8-6-0) for second place in a tight race for Western Lacrosse Association playoff spots. They are two points ahead New West (7-8-0).
After Nanaimo scored the first goal, the Lakers pumped in eight consecutive goals and had an 8-2 lead after the first period. But the Timbermen outscored the Lakers 5-2 in the second and the third periods to send it to overtime. Nanaimo scored five unanswered goals in the third for a 10-9 lead but Burnaby got a powerplay goal from Casey Jackson with 82 seconds left to force OT. Colton Clark scored 3:12 into overtime for Burnaby with Peter McFetridge sealing the deal with just six seconds left in the 10-minute frame. Jackson and Dane Stevens both had seven-point performances with Jackson
getting four goals and Stevens three. Jackson Decker had three goals and two assists while Clark had a pair of each. Bryan Safarik also scored for Burnaby while Scott Tinning collected six assists and Scott Jones had five. Burnaby was 6-for-10 on the power play while Nanaimo was 3-for-7. The Lakers outshot the Timbermen 61-47. Burnaby plays host to Coquitlam on Friday and then has a rematch with the T-men in Nanaimo on Sunday. The Lakers finish the season by playing host to firstplace Langley (10-5-0) next Friday and in Coquitlam the next night.
Clan a step closer to NCAA if Simon Fraser is approved it will become a full member as of Sept. 1. “Being able to compete for national championships in the NCAA will instill a sense of pride and engagement in the entire SFU community,” said Simon Fraser president Andrew Petter in a press release.
“SFU’s ability to participate in the NCAA as a full member provides numerous opportunities to the university, not only in avenues it gives athletes to compete, but it will also build the profile of SFU throughout North America.” SFU has been competing for the past two school years in the NCAA, but couldn’t

Simon Fraser University is one step away from becoming a full member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. On Saturday, the NCAA conditionally approved SFU as its first non-American school. The executive council will hold a final vote on Aug. 1, and

The NCAA, however, approved an exception last week for the Clan to compete in championships starting this fall while the university pursues accreditation with the Northwest Commission of Colleges and Universities.

Car Insurance. Protect yourself from smash and grab thieves. Summer is here again, and you’ll probably find you’re using the car more, for going on road trips, or camping or a day jaunt to your favourite beach. Naturally, items like sunglasses, camping gear, shopping bags and cell phones for example also find their way into your vehicle. But what happens when you get back to your car from a day of fun and find the window shattered, the door forced and items are missing. If this happens, what’s covered by car insurance and what is not? While your car insurance covers many things, it usually does not extend to loss of your personal contents in the car. In addition to losing your personal property, a break-in can leave you with the hassle and expense of fixing damages such as broken window glass, typical with a break-in. If you claim against your car insurance, you’ll be paying the Comprehensive deductible. But if personal items have been stolen from your vehicle, your deductibles may not end there. Goods such as cameras, sporting equipment and clothing are usually covered under your home insurance policy, not your car insurance. You would be required to make two separate claims, one on your car insurance and the other on your home insurance. Typical deductibles on car insurance can range from $300 to $500, while $500 is the standard on home insurance. A car break in can cost you, the

sharply higher utility bills. Federal environment minister Peter Kent was in Delta Wednesday to announce new federal effluent regulations that mandate sewage system upgrades to a minimum of secondary treatment. He made no explicit funding promises but said the federal government intends to roll out a new long-term infrastructure grant program starting in 2014, after the federal deficit is eliminated. Metro board chair Greg Moore said he’s hopeful one third of the upgrade cost here will be covered by the federal government and be matched by the province. The new rules had been widely expected and Metro Vancouver is already designing the replacement of its Lions Gate plant, which must be complete by 2020. The deadline for Iona’s replacement is 2030 but Metro aims to replace it several years

sooner if senior governments share the costs. If federal grant money doesn’t materialize, Metro Vancouver residents could see their sewage bills more than triple, and households in Vancouver and the North Shore that are directly served by Iona and Lions Gate may see their
The good news is that there are now some optional car insurance policies offering unique solutions, like the Smash and Grab coverage that can be added to BCAA’s Optional Car Insurance. The Smash and Grab coverage waives the glass deductible on all glass claims and covers your personal property up to $500, again with no deductible. Of course, prevention is always better than cure, so try and avoid making yourself an easy target by giving thieves a reason to break into your car. Keep valuable items hidden from view, or better yet keep them locked up in the trunk when you’re away from your car. You should also always ensure you lock the doors and roll up all the windows before you leave. The next time your car insurance is up for renewal, speak to a BCAA Car Insurance specialist. They’ll assess your needs and help find the options that are right for you. Zlata Stump is an Insurance Specialist with BCAA. She can be reached at email@example.com.

annual bills rise by as much as $1,000. “That’s the worst-case scenario,” Moore said. “It is not reasonable to expect local taxpayers to carry the entire burden.” Some cities within within Metro are also lobbying to rejig the formula that currently apportions much of sewage capital costs on the benefitting areas. The idea would be to spread more of the cost across all of the regional district, making residents in non-benefitting areas like Surrey and the TriCities chip in to reduce the impact in Vancouver and the North Shore. Surrey councillors have vowed to fight such a change, arguing their residents in previously paid the bulk of the costs of the 1996 upgrade of the Annacis Island treatment plant under the existing formula. Georgia Strait Alliance executive director Christianne Wilhelmson said the Iona plant should be upgraded sooner than 2030, the deadline for medium-risk plants, adding it should be considered high risk. “Iona discharges near the mouth of the Fraser River – a very unique marine environment,” she said. “ But it’s Store Hours treated like any other Mon.-Wed. & Sat. 9:30-5:30 wastewater system that Thurs. & Fri. might dump into the 9:30 - 9 Sun. 12 - 5 middle of the ocean.”

Ensuring your home is in tip-top shape and looking its best will go a long way to helping it sell quickly, at the best price possible.
Key steps before showing your home Are you thinking of selling your home? Before your realtor begins showing your home, you will want to make sure it’s in tiptop condition. An attractive, well-kept home generally has a better chance of selling a little faster. Minor exterior and interior improvements can add value to your home and need not require a large renovation bill. Think back to what first attracted you to your home; now determine how best to highlight and improve your home’s best features. Here are a few ideas to help you perk-up your home’s appearance. Consult with your realtor to see what types of improvements make the most sense. Start with the outside: an inviting exterior ensures that potential buyers will inspect the interior. • Keeplawnsandgardens well maintained; • Ensuregarageandporch areas are free of clutter and refuse; • Repairloosesidingor pavement; • Replaceanydamaged roof shingles, eavestroughs or cracked windows; • Washwindows,gutters, mailbox and doors; • Securelooseshuttersor awnings.

Developers including work-live spaces in new projects
Achieving the work-life balance Living in the Lower Mainland can sometimes mean a long commute between work and home. Many developers are making this easier on homeowners by incorporating worklive spaces in their new homes. A work-live space is usually a small space in a home with room for a desk and often shelving and lighting. It can be a separate room, or more often, a designated nook off of the living area. Treegroup’s Headwaters takes it one step further, offering a Business Centre that includes a conference room, Internet lounge and private offices. The homes include an area that Treegroup calls a Personal Hub, with a built-in
desk and recessed lighting. Another development that offers work-live spaces is Cressey’s MTwo, which include workstations in nearly every floorplan. Their Meccanica development will also include a space for working at home. Bluetree Homes’ developments at Kanaka Creek and Bishop Creek are also in the thick of the work-live trend with their bonus room in every floorplan that is perfect for an office. When your commute can be measured in seconds rather than minutes, you’ll have more time to enjoy the sunny day and get more done when you’re not worried about fighting traffic.
A stress-free buying experience
Coming home to Morningstar’s Kingston by Kerry Vital
When you’re looking for a home fit for royalty, look no further than Morningstar Homes’ Kingston on Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain. “This is one of the most pictureperfect projects,” says Morningstar Vice-President of Sales and Marketing Deborah Calahan. “Coquitlam has not had homes of this grandeur before.” The homes opened for sale on July 7, and already over 25 per cent of them have sold. With just 26 single-family homes in the project, they are already proving very popular, and Calahan says people don’t want to miss out. “There are no other homes like it,” she says. “These are the last of the big lots on Burke Mountain.” Morningstar prides itself on its array of options that they give home buyers, and nowhere is this more evident than at Kingston. With two different floorplans (Emerald and Sapphire), both over 4,300 square feet, the homes at Kingston are truly spacious. With an open-concept layout and tons of amazing features, there is no shortage of things to fall in love with as you tour the two show homes. You can start with the huge lots, ranging from 8,000 to 10,000 square feet. All of them have plenty of usable backyard space for playing or entertaining, and back onto a protected green creek space. The four-bedroom homes include windows from floor to the 19-foot ceiling in the great room on the main floor, letting the light pour in no matter what Mother Nature is doing outside. Beside the great room, the kitchen is a chef ’s dream, with a huge granite island and the option to include a spice or butler’s kitchen. The Emerald plan includes French doors out to the backyard, which Calahan says have been a particularly popular feature. The Sapphire plan’s door opens from the side of the kitchen, continuing Morningstar’s theme of offering choices for homeowners. The kitchen and dining area includes chic hardwood flooring, while the rest is carpeted, with the option to have hardwood throughout the living areas. “We added more personal choices,” Calahan says. “That’s not typical of a volume builder.” The master suite is seriously stunning, with vaulted ceilings and private Juliet balconies perfect for
This is one of the most picture-perfect projects,” says Morningstar Vice-President of Sales and Marketing Deborah Calahan. a glass of wine or a morning cup of coffee. The ensuite bathroom is fit for a spa, with a huge soaker tub and separate glass-framed shower, and a sparkling chandelier. “There’s a real resort feel in here,” says Calahan. “They really nailed it.” On the bottom floor, Morningstar again offers you options. The basement comes unfinished, but you are also able to make it into a legal suite or a deluxe finished basement. In every case, you are able to walk out directly into your backyard, making the basement a perfect place for a media room, play area or, in the case of the Sapphire show home, an amazing wine cellar. “We aim to make the home-buying experience smooth and stress-free,” Calahan says. “We’ve put together enough choices to make it your own while keeping it easy.” Homes start at $1.1 million. For more information, visit www. mstarhomes.com or call 604-469-1648.
Beauty is the name of the game at Morningstar Homes’ Kingston, on Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain. With stunning exteriors, above, and an openplan layout with a 19-foot ceiling in the great room, middle, you’ll have plenty of space to entertain. When it’s relaxation you need, look no further than the spa-like bathroom in the master suite, top.

This is rare value you can’t afford to miss.
