First 200 condos sell in two days Wanda Chow

wchow@burnabynewsleader.com

The first 200 condo units in Appia Developments’ Solo District sold out in two days despite media reports of a cooling real estate market. When completed in early 2015, the first residential tower, the 45-storey Stratus, will include almost 400 homes at the corner of Lougheed and Rosser Avenue. Additional units will be released for

sale in the fall, with the date and numbers still to be determined. Before sales opened on July 21, previews of the sales centre attracted thousands of people who waited up to two hours to see the show suites. “We quickly realized that community demand was there and that people wanted to start buying,” says Jim Bosa, president of Appia Developments. “We decided to release a few homes as an

introductory release and we’ve had an excellent response. We’ve sold out our first release and we’re also oversubscribed for the next round.” Prices started at $289,900 for a one-bedroom,  $389,900 for a two-bedroom and $679,000 for a three-bedroom. “Our first Solo District buyer on Saturday morning was a first-time homebuyer in her late 20s who had grown up in the area,” Bosa said. “Like many other buyers she knew

the area well, saw the potential in the community and wanted to be a part of it.” The overall Solo project will comprise four towers ranging from 38 to 55 storeys, and totalling about 1,400 homes at the southwest corner of Lougheed Highway and Willingdon Avenue. It will also be home to more than 100,000 square feet of retail, including Burnaby’s first Whole Foods store, and 40,000 square feet of office space.

The jail cells at the Burnaby RCMP detachment will be getting a $1.4-million retrofit after Burnaby council approved the funding. While there have been changes to the Burnaby Justice Building at 6355 Deer Lake Avenue, first in the 1980s and then in 2002 when the courthouse was closed, the cell block section remains as it was originally built in 1966, according to a city staff report. Located in the basement under the former courtrooms, they were among the subjects of a national review in 2005 of RCMP cell block facilities to determine who well their design minimized the potential for injury of inmates. “Due to the age of this existing facility and type of construction, it was determined that there are existing conditions that should be addressed to improve safety,” said the report.

“Specifically, needed changes to the open steelbar cell doors, raised steel-post sleeping bunks and the existing sinks and toilets were identified.” While an architecture firm hired by the city determined most of the safety standards could be addressed, “other items such as meeting new cell area requirements could not be achieved due to the structural nature of the renovations and the significant costs that would be incurred.” The proposed upgrades include replacing the open bar doors and partitions with solid ones, replacing suspended steel bunks with solid concrete units, eliminating blind spots and hanging points and the replacement of plumbing fixtures. A closed-circuit video surveillance system will also be upgraded to provide full coverage of individual cells and other areas. Coun. Pietro Calendino, who toured the cell block, said there are code requirements and standards set out by the federal government that need to be addressed, such as sharp edges on the cots and gates. “I don’t know if this would get a lot of sympathy from taxpayers,” said Mayor Derek Corrigan. “No, but it must be done, it’s regulations,” Calendino replied.

Helps newcomers navigate expectations of Canadian employers

Tilt-A-Whirl Band featuring Lou Ann Barton

When Luis Masaya immigrated to Canada from Guatemala early last year, he came with an education in computer science and experience teaching at university and working in the United States. But he couldn’t find work here. It was some months before he realized that in Guatemala, “everyone is a generalist,” having several different responsibilities that in Canada would translate into several different job positions. When Masaya, now 44, applied for jobs, they’d ask what his experience was. “When I tell them I can do a lot of things, they don’t see the depth.” Or they’d see his academic experience and assumed he wanted to teach. Help in figuring out the intricacies of a Canadian job search came in the form of the Skills Connect for Immigrants Program, a three-year-old initiative funded jointly by the federal and provincial governments. The program provides up to one year of support to newcomers. To be eligible, participants must be permanent residents of Canada, having

MP calls for open Burnaby hearings in pipeline process First phase looks at how much Kinder Morgan can charge customers Wanda Chow

wchow@burnabynewsleader.com

Kinder Morgan Canada hasn’t finalized a route yet for the proposed twinning of its Trans Mountain pipeline, nor has it made a formal application to the National Energy Board (NEB), but Burnaby-Douglas NDP MP Kennedy Stewart believes there’s still much that can be learned from the company’s commercial tolling application. That’s why Stewart has written to the NEB calling for open, oral hearings in Burnaby for the application, which was filed June 29, through which the regulatory body will decide how much the company can charge customers for moving oil through an expanded pipeline. The 1,150-km pipeline stretches from Edmonton to its terminus in Burnaby. The expansion is largely aimed at getting Alberta oil sands bitumen crude to export markets in Asia. Premier Christy Clark’s recent assertion that British Columbia would need to receive additional benefits before the provincial government would consider approving the expansion is an example of what might be learned at an open hearing in Burnaby, said Stewart. He suggested additional fees could be added to the tolls which could then be passed on to provincial and local governments and First Nations. The prospect of Burnaby operations such as the Chevron refinery and Suncor having to compete for space on the pipeline with overseas pipeline customers also has implications for local jobs, he said. “It’s such a giant project that all the steps in the process should be as open as possible.” Stewart said local landowners whose properties may end up being along the expanded pipeline’s route may want money built into the toll to pay for related safety measures. “I think it’s perfectly

appropriate for individual landowners or groups of landowners to have an opportunity to participate in these kinds of processes.” It’s through the NEB process and public hearings, preferably oral hearings that allow for questions and answers, that people may get answers about the project, he said. It’s up to the NEB to decide the format of the process. “This is the first phase in what may be a major consultation process as big as the Northern Gateway pipeline, so there’s no reason why this shouldn’t be as open as that process.” He noted that while Kinder Morgan has chosen to embark on the commercial tolling process first, Enbridge will undergo that as the third phase of its Northern Gateway application, only after its pipeline and specific details are approved. When the $4-billion pipeline project is compared to the amount of public consultation Burnaby city hall typically undergoes for a rezoning or new community centre, “we deserve at least one hearing here in

Burnaby if it’s such a big project that’s going to be affecting us here.” Lexa Hobenshield, Kinder Morgan Canada’s spokesperson, said by email the company will abide by the NEB’s review process. “This toll application is not about approving proposed routing or construction of the proposed expansion project—that is a separate application that we expect to file in late 2013,” she stressed, adding information on the project is available at www. transmountain.com. The company has announced its proposal to twin the pipeline to expand from its current 300,000 barrels per day capacity to 750,000 barrels daily. Its expansion application to the NEB will include a potential corridor. If the project gets the go-ahead, the company would then come up with a detailed specific route which would go through its own NEB approval process. If it receives all the required approvals, Kinder Morgan will spend $4.1 billion and aim to have the expansion in service by 2017.

NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Be safe this weekend

LAST WEEK:

A summer holiday, warm sunny weather, backyard barbecues where an alcoholic beverage or two might be consumed, and congested roads are a dangerous mix. Sometimes fatal. Long weekends are particularly notorious for tragedy on the roads and highways. Drivers anxious to get to the lake in time to secure a camp spot, a moment’s inattention to deal with restless kids in the back seat, even an annoying bee buzzing the windshield can all have lifealtering consequences if they lead to a crash. According to ICBC, there are more than 20,000 motor vehicle collisions in the average year in Burnaby and New Westminster. Approximately 6,600 people will be injured in those collisions. Some will be lucky to get away with little more than a scratch, cleaned up by emergency responders and sent on their way to deal with insurance details and getting their vehicle repaired. Others will suffer more severe, debilitating injuries that will have a devastating impact on their lives, their ability to work and pursue the activities they love. They’ll burden the medical and legal systems and perhaps eventually social welfare programs. Some won’t even be that lucky, bringing heartbreak and hardship to those who love them. Every year police and government authorities do their best to reduce the chances of catastrophic collisions with safety and awareness campaigns, as well as improvements to infrastructure like intersections, traffic signals and on-ramps. In 2011 ICBC spent approximately $38 million on road safety programs in the province including CounterAttack, intersection cameras and speakers tours. But it’s never enough when that person T-boned by an impaired driver is someone you know and love. Be safe and drive carefully this BC Day weekend.

THIS WEEK: Will you be travelling on the road this holiday weekend? Vote at www.burnabynewsleader.com

Mario, Rossi and the road more travelled I blame Mario. It is his fault, the alarm that wakes me much too early on Saturday mornings. His fault, the (ahem) snug Lycra shorts I wear, the colourful jerseys I pull over my head. His fault, the countless hours and kilometres I spend on two skinny wheels. I also blame Rossi. Let me explain: Preparing to move a few years ago, my friend Mario Bartel, a photographer and reporter at the NewsLeader papers in Burnaby and New Westminster — and a hardcore cyclist — needed to get rid of some of his stuff. So he did what anyone would (not) do: He created a website and emailed the link to friends and acquaintances, who could then shop online for used Ikea furniture and other household items. Or, in my case, a blue, steelframed Kona mountain bike that had carried its owner up and down trails for years but had been replaced with a newer model. With an eye to upgrading from a bike I had bought in the 1980s, I pointed and clicked to reserve that beast, an investment of a couple of hundred bucks in future fun and fitness.

Richard Dal Monte When I visited Mario to pick up my purchase, he mentioned he was also selling his old road bike, which he’d been using on his training machine and which he would throw in for an extra $50. That’s Rossi. Sleek, elegant tubular steel. Gleaming chrome forks. A hard, old leather seat. Italian. Mario had bought it more than 20 years earlier, when he was a university student, and just as it had grabbed him from the first ride, it spoke to me now. It spoke of packs of riders on mountain roads and city streets in my family’s native northern Italy. It spoke of childhood freedom in East Van on my purple bike with the banana seat and sissy bar, and, later, my brother’s hand-me-down, Woodwards-bought 10-speed. It reminded me of the time, more than two decades earlier, when I heard someone talk about riding to Whistler and I had thought, “Wouldn’t that be

7438 Fraser Park Dr., Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9 newsroom@burnabynewsleader.com burnabynewsleader.com | newwestnewsleader.com

cool?,” never thinking I would do it (I’ve done it). And it said one thing I immediately knew to be true: This is going to become an expensive habit. Still, cheapskate though I am, I was sold. And thus began the education of a roadie, another MAMIL (middle-aged man in Lycra) among the hundreds you see on local roads any given weekend. Not that I was a two-wheeled newbie. I remember the precise moment, as a child, that I learned to ride without training wheels, pushing off my neighbour David Andrews’ front steps and cruising down the sidewalk, the secret of balance suddenly revealed, a discovery that would yield hundreds of hours of fun with friends — Albert, Dave, Gary, Gary, Robbie, Mark, Bill — on the streets of our neighbourhood. Now, the carbon-fibre Cannondale that the Rossi begat is also the source of much recreation with riding buddies. First, there was Max, a friend and neighbour who let me slow him down on trail rides and road outings until I was usually able to keep up. Then came Hush, Ziv, Sumo, Detonator and Andrew. Mario, too.

Each is better, stronger, faster than I. But when I struggle up a hill, which I usually do, I sometimes think of a story about my father that I learned only after Rossi entered my life, and only after my dad died: He was about 25 when he was preparing to emigrate from Italy and was working clearing brush in a town called Castello Tesino in the Dolomite Mountains. Word came to his family’s home that he was to attend a meeting about his emigration. His brother Silvano got on a bike and rode 50 km or so to alert him and to take over my dad’s job so he could take the bicicletta and ride back to attend the meeting that would propel him to Canada. I think of this story and I imagine him pedalling a heavy, old bike. I imagine the hairy switchbacks of the Dolomiti. I imagine a determined young man in dirty work clothes and worn boots pushing to his future. I imagine this ride as but one of many challenges before him. And I keep pedalling. And for that, I blame Mario. Richard Dal Monte is editor of The Tri-City News.

COMMENT Why men blame it on ‘the wife’ I laughed out loud when I read Andrew Holota’s commentary on having to check with his wife before agreeing to activities. In our house there are two reasons that account for this: Firstly, my loving, kind, adorable man cannot remember a darn thing he previously committed to. He would, for example, agree to a day of motorcycle riding on the very day he is scheduled for a colonoscopy. Now how would that end up I ask you? Thus he says he will check with me because he knows I have a huge calendar on the fridge with all his, and our four sons’, commitments. Saves him a lot of trouble and our friends, family and the medical community a lot of strife! Secondly, because of the guy culture, it is sometimes easier for men to say they have to ask their wives rather than to say they don’t want to do the stereotypical guy thing. If, for example, my husband were asked to go fishing for a week with the guys, he would say “I have to check with my wife” but really he would be thinking that it was the last thing on the planet he wanted to do. It is easier to roll your eyes and say the wife said no than to say you aren’t into what most guys are into. Men are so hypersensitive to anything that isn’t macho that opting out is sometimes not an option.   Women, I am sure, are the same way about a very stereotypical female activity. Were I to not want to go on a spa weekend, my friends would think I was nuts too. Some of us even blame our husbands if we don’t want to go! Jennifer Thuncher Burnaby

Was it Worth it? After months of dodging and dancing, the BC Liberal government finally has taken a position on the Enbridge pipeline proposal. The question is: Was it worth the wait? Approval of the project hinges on five conditions, two of which sound like spin rather than stipulation; namely, consultation with First

Nations and an environmental assessment. These are already mandates of the National Energy Board. As well, Enbridge has been offering First Nations “opportunities to benefit” for several months now. So, nothing new there. Then there are two demands dealing with “world class” land and water oil spill prevention, response and recovery systems. It sounds good, especially since it is based on the principle of “polluter pays.” But, when all is said and done, the best safeguards in the world won’t prevent oil spills, much less repair the damage to ecosystems. And, let’s face it: Enbridge’s record is far from exemplary. So, the polluter may pay but money can be replaced. The environment cannot. The final condition seeks payment for the risk to the environment posed by a pipeline and tankers carrying heavy crude. To that end, the provincial government has demanded a “fair share of the fiscal and economic benefits” of the Enbridge project and “other proposals for heavy oil pipelines,” It is here that the government stumbled badly. Alberta’s Premier Alison Redford made two telling points. First, B.C. has the necessary fiscal means to get the economic benefits it seeks and, secondly, inasmuch as the pipeline is a commercial venture, B.C. should negotiate with Enbridge, not the Alberta or federal governments. Christy Clark, however, wouldn’t budge. Redford then suggested Clark’s concerns possibly could be addressed as part of an agreement on a national energy strategy. That idea was rejected as well. So, at the end of the day, although our premier says she wants to negotiate a price for B.C.’s approval of the Enbridge pipeline project, she made it clear that it’s her way or no way. It got headlines, that’s for sure. But I very much doubt it will get her what she wants. On the other hand, maybe it did. Bill Brassington Burnaby

it has to be said I have written many letters to the editor. The topics have

always been positive and upbeat. Not today! While my husband and I walk our dog each day, we also pick up litter. Saturdays and Sundays are the worst because the young people who party into the night on weekends always leave their fast food bags, wrappers, leftovers, beer cans and liquor bottles strewn all over the local elementary school grounds. What makes us the most angry, however, is when the partiers smash their bottles on the basketball court and in the adventure playground and sandbox. Kids play there! People walk their dogs there! To the partiers, (who probably won’t read this), have your fun, but try showing some respect for others—grow a conscience! We experienced another example of ignorance and disrespect yesterday at Costco. A woman had parked in a handicapped space and an employee put a sign on her windshield warning her not to park there without having the handicapped sign displayed. (We discovered later that she had challenged the staff member to try giving her a ticket.)  The woman was loading her car as we walked by and, grinning at us, said she’d received those warnings before and knew she shouldn’t be parking there. I told her she was disgusting and she repeatedly yelled, “F*** YOU! F*** YOU!”  She then yelled at a man walking by, telling him what I’d said and he responded with, “You just cheated a disabled person out of this parking spot. You are disgusting.” She was not impressed with his lack of support. As I think about it further, if you have no conscience, repeatedly break rules to ensure your own convenience, have no respect for your fellow people, and swear at the top of your lungs when called on it—I guess you are handicapped and disgusting! Though I know there are many more “good “ folks out there than “bad,” it’s sad that people can be so selfish and inconsiderate of others. Ila Appleby Burnaby

Report flags many oil spill response gaps Vancouver tankers move with looser rules than U.S. Jeff Nagel Black Press

The province’s own assessment that B.C. is underprepared to prevent and clean up oil spills has handed fresh ammunition to opponents of new pipelines and the tankers now moving through Burrard Inlet. The 52-page technical report, released Monday (July 23) as the government laid out its demands for improved safety and a bigger share

of benefits, raises multiple concerns about the risks and procedures already used to export Alberta oil via Kinder Morgan’s existing Trans Mountain pipeline through the Lower Mainland. Among the findings:  • U.S. authorities require oil-laden tankers sailing east of Port Angeles to have escort tugs with them, while that’s voluntary for tankers in much of B.C. waters outside Vancouver harbour.  • B.C. fails to match requirements by Washington State requiring an emergency tug be on standby on the

sea route. • Washington bans Suezmax tankers, which carry 800,000 to one million barrels, from its inner waters but Port Metro Vancouver has said that tanker size could be allowed in Vancouver harbour if the Second Narrows is dredged. • Alaska has far tougher spill response rules, requiring industry-funded emergency responders be able to handle a 300,000 barrel spill, compared to just 70,000 barrels in B.C., before international aid is invoked. B.C. crews would be “completely overwhelmed” by a 260,000-barrel Exxon Valdezsized spill. The report warns the current spill response capacity “appears to be insufficient” to handle the existing tanker shipments of oil from the Trans Mountain pipeline even if neither its expansion nor the new Enbridge pipeline proceed. “Increasing this threshold is critical,” the report said of the 70,000-barrel response capability. It also noted cleanup costs exceeding $1.3 billion may not be covered by insurance or industry funds and fall on taxpayers and others. “Canada has no plan in place

to cover the excess costs of a major spill,” it says. No provision is made to deal with oiled wildlife, it says, and there’s no mechanism to make use of volunteers. It also says the capacity to clean oiled shoreline should be boosted from the current 500 metres of shore per day. “Exxon Valdez impacted 2,000 kilometres of shoreline. At 500 metres per day, a similar spill occurring in B.C. would require a 10-year cleanup.” Karen Wristen, executive director of the Living Oceans Society, said the improvements flagged in the report must be made regardless of whether new pipelines are approved. She noted some tankers leaving Kinder Morgan’s Burnaby terminal are laden with conventional oil but others increasingly carry heavy oil sands bitumen, which she said increases the risk of a pipeline rupture on land and vastly increases the damage if a tanker spills at sea. “We don’t know from tanker to tanker going through a heavily populated area what the risk is,” Wristen said. “There is no spill response for a bitumen spill. It’s going to the bottom.”

JOIN

The provincial report also raises bitumen as an issue, noting it is more likely to sink and presents higher environmental risks and a more difficult cleanup if spilled. “It is possible that the capacity that exists for crude oil spills – from training to equipment – may not be appropriate for bitumen,” the report said. “Thus, a major gap may likely exist for all current and future bitumen shipments taking place on Canada’s west coast.” The provincial report notes oil shipping safety has improved and spills have become rarer worldwide. Belcarra Mayor Ralph Drew, a member of Metro Vancouver’s port cities committee, said the deficiencies flagged in the provincial report deserve “serious examination” and added the challenge now is getting Ottawa to implement them. “It is clear even from this technical report that Canada falls short,” said UBC political science professor Michael Byers. “Not only is the current capacity insufficient in the future, it already is insufficient and needs to be addressed.”

Hastings deal shelves horse track merger idea Separate paths seen for harness, thoroughbred racing Jeff Nagel

jnagel@blackpress.ca

“But if you’re going to sustain an industry and the 7,000 overall jobs it supports, you’d probably make that investment – if you had a good business plan to back it up.” He expects one recommendation in the pending report will be to split the current horse racing management body that runs both styles of racing. “The two industries probably need to be decoupled to pursue separate and unique business strategies,” Coleman said, adding he believes that may be the formula for long-term sustainability. That would see thoroughbred and standardbred racing allocated separate funding sources to run their individual breeding and other operations, according to business models that fit their needs. “They have a different betting group and different clienteles,” he added. Hastings Park has done well attracting upscale gamblers and urbanites to the races, in part with concerts and other attractions, he said.

In contrast, he said attendance for harness racing at Cloverdale’s Fraser Downs is flat and needs to focus on offering a more family-oriented experience. Coleman suggested another change could allow Great Canadian to sell off one or both of the horse racing operations. “It comes down to the track operator – whether they want to be in the business,” he said. “They may want to have the horse racing side separate from them because it’s not their core business.” Harness Racing BC CEO Doug McCallum is upbeat about the future of the standardbred racing, adding more horses are being bred and wagering is up this year – particularly online. “We’re in pretty good shape this year and going into next year,” he said, adding a return to a longer racing season has helped.

The City of Vancouver has agreed to a two-year extension of Great Canadian Gaming’s Hastings Racecourse, putting to rest for now talk that the Lower Mainland’s two horse racing tracks might merge at a single site. Vancouver council’s delay in signing a deal to keep racing at Hastings Park and its goal of tripling green space in the park had fueled speculation thoroughbred horse racing there might soon be relocated to Cloverdale’s Fraser Downs, which hosts standardbred harness racing. “This extension allows our company to work closely with the City of Vancouver regarding long-term operations at Hastings Racecourse without being concerned with a lease deadline looming,” Great Canadian twitter.com/jeffnagel spokesman Howard Blank said. Rich Coleman, the provincial minister responsible for gaming, said in an earlier interview he expects both tracks will continue separate operations. And he said a new five-year strategic plan for the horse racing industry set for release soon will likely call for significant changes but continued operation of both tracks. “I think the recommendation at the end of the day may be to see if they can sustain themselves at their individual tracks,” Coleman said. Running both racing styles at one dual-circuit track isn’t impossible, but Coleman said it will be off the table as long as separate tracks have secure homes and are viable. Consolidating tracks in Surrey at Cloverdale would require moving barns to make room for an expanded racing footprint. “It’s not cheap – it’s probably in the TWO GREAT RESTAURANTS... ONE LOCATION! $10-million range,” Metropolis @ Metrotown | 604-435-8577 Coleman said.

Record check trend draws privacy warning Some searches tap police database

Jeff Nagel Black Press

B.C. Privacy Commisioner Elizabeth Denham is warning both the provincial government and private sector employers are making too much use of criminal record checks. She issued an investigation report recommending the province limit its use of checks, which are used to vet prospective employees and re-screen some existing staff. “I’m concerned about the societal trend towards increased employment-related records checks without clear evidence as to their benefit

in safeguarding the workplace,” Denham said. Record checks are important tools in hiring staff who will work with vulnerable adults or children or wield great spending or data-access powers, she said. But in some cases, she said, government conducts ongoing or multiple criminal record checks on the same employee, adding that shouldn’t happen without a justifiable reason. Denham also wants the province to report publicly on its use of record checks. B.C. Civil Liberties Association executive director David Eby said the problem is not just criminal record checks but broader police information checks that also pull in data recorded in the PRIME-BC police database. Most of the B.C. population is in PRIME – often as witnesses, 911 callers or other contacts in a police investigation – and some are recorded as having had “adverse contact” with police. That designation can spell rejection for a job applicant or prospective tenant who agrees to a request for a police information search, Eby said. “It’s completely at the discretion of the police and it’s incredibly overused,” Eby said of the “adverse

contact” designation in the database. The box can be checked for someone who was insistent on their rights in dealing with police, he said, or even in cases where someone attempts suicide and their family or friends call police. “This database was never meant to be used to prevent people from getting apartments or job opportunities,” Eby said. “But it’s become a database for employers, landlords and schools. It’s got this creeping functionality to it that needs to be reined in.” The over-reliance on checks is also unfortunate in cases where people who do have a criminal past are now trying to change their path, he added. “Often people have stopped using drugs and are trying to clean up their lives and get back to work,” he said. “They’re being frustrated by this.” Denham’s report said adverse contact designations are not court-tested and the use of police information checks by employers is much more privacy invasive and difficult to justify in comparison to criminal record checks. She recommended B.C. public agencies not use police information checks. twitter.com/jeffnagel

Thief allegedly caught in the act A suspected thief might have got away with his crime if not for the alert Burnaby RCMP officer he encountered during his attempted escape. On Monday, July 23 at about 3 p.m., Staff Sgt. Andy LeClair was about to go into the Metrotown community police office when a male burst out of an emergency exit of Crystal Mall next door. Obviously surprised to see the officer in front of him, the suspect appeared nervous. “I’ve been a police officer for 21 years and I have an eight year old son, I can generally tell when someone has done something wrong,” said LeClair in a press release. “So I wanted to talk with this guy and find out who he was.” It wasn’t long before another male ran out of the mall, distraught and trying to tell LeClair something despite a language barrier. At this point, the suspect decided to come clean. He pulled out a

cellphone and gave it to the second male, while making an incriminating statement. “He then asked me if it mattered that he had returned the phone,” said LeClair. “I told him I appreciated it, but he was still getting charged.” The thief was arrested for possession of stolen property. It turns out he had a criminal history, including a judicial order prohibiting him from being near another mall. The suspect was held in Burnaby RCMP cells where a justice of the peace denied him bail and ordered him kept in custody. twitter.com/WandaChow

Warning issued about weight loss product Health Canada is warning consumers about four products sold at a Burnaby store which claim to assist weight loss.

The four products—Brazil Perfect Reducing Fat Coffee, Goya Bittermelon, S-organic Cocoa+L-carnitine and Super Fat Burning Bomb—were seized by Health Canada from U-Box in Burnaby. Health Canada testing has found they contain hidden drug ingredients, sibutramine and phenolphthalein, that may pose serious health risks. Caffeine was also found in some of the products but was not listed in its ingredients on the label. Sibutramine was previously used to treat obesity but is no longer authorized for sale in Canada because it has been linked with an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Consumers should consult their doctors if they have used the products and report any adverse reactions to Health Canada. Info: 1-866-225-0709.
