that ride the elevated rail lines from Surrey to Vancouver to Richmond five days a week, 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., talking to kids under 19 years old, directing them to community resources, handing out meal coupons, transit tickets and snacks. The snacks are the key, says Preston, opening a dark blue/grey backpack filled with candy bars, juice boxes and bags of bright orange cheese puffs. “They’re a huge icebreaker,” says Preston, who’s been with I-RAYL for two years. “When we first approach kids, they have no idea

Most SkyTrain commuters give a wide berth to gaggles of loudtalking, gum-smacking, cigarettesharing young people. Chris Preston and Despina Stratidakis make a bee-line right for them. They’re one of two teams of youth outreach workers (three in the summer) with the Inter-Regional At-Risk Youth Link (I-RAYL)

who we are.” But the universal language of free snacks creates a connection that can lead a troubled youth to the help they need to steer clear of a life of crime or other high-risk behaviour, give them the support and stability they might need. “You always try an approach to make conversation, build a relationship,” says Preston. The teams meet 700 to 800 youth each month. The four-year old program, which is unique in Canada, is funded by $360,000 from the

Ministry of Children and Family Development, and administered by Pacific Community Resources. The outreach workers tap into resources available to youth in the various communities along the SkyTrain lines, from shelters to social services to food banks to counseling to recreation and youth centres, as well as local and transit police. “Youth are so transient,” says Preston. “They’re traveling between communities and SkyTrain offers them a conduit. We’re meeting them where they’re at.” please see stEERINg, A3

Take a stroll along Columbia Street and look up, straight ahead or sideways and it’s easy to see glimpses of the New Westminster thoroughfare’s glorious past. Soon it will be possible to look down and get a colourful view of yesteryear as well. Mosaic tiles depicting the Downtown’s history will be unveiled to the public on Friday and then laid down at strategic corners along Columbia during the fall. “They’re gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. They’ll definitely add excitement and colour as you walk down the street,” said Downtown New Westminster Business Improvement Association executive director Kendra Johnston. “It’s amazing really.” Johnston sat on the volunteer committee that put the project together. It was funded by money endowed by the now-defunct New Westminster Community Development Society. please see sIMILAR, A4

The City of New Westminster would like to warn residents that Giant Hogweed has been found in the rear of a property in Queensborough. The plant has been removed from the area, but we ask you to be on the lookout for any signs of it and report it immediately so it can be removed. Giant Hogweed sap is very corrosive and even brushing against the plant can cause serious injury or skin problems. if you find the plant please do not touch it. Giant Hogweed can be identified by its reddish-purple stem with fine spines, and its spotted leaf stalks. The plant can grow about 16ft (5m) high, has leaves up to 5ft (1.5m) wide, and has flower heads which can each produce about 50,000 seeds every year. If you find Giant Hogweed on your property, please contact the Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver at 604-880-8358.

Steering youth onto right track ⍸

continued from page a1

Most of their work is proactive, trying to reach kids before they get into trouble with the law, but through constant alerts on their Blackberrys, they’re also an extra set of eyes that can keep a look out for missing kids or youth gone AWOL from group homes. On a recent pitstop at Metrotown Station, one of three transit hubs along the SkyTrain system that attract lots of young people (Surrey Central and Broadway-Commercial are the others), Preston and Stratidakis walk up to a small group of clean-cut kids in shorts and crisp T-shirts hanging out on the concrete concourse outside the doors to Metropolis at Metrotown. After a brief introduction and explanation of who they are and what they’re doing, their offer of free snacks is greeted with smiles and polite thanks. One kid accepts a business card. “The worst that can happen is they’re just not interested,� says Stratidakis. But they might have a friend who is in trouble and that initial contact can pay off down the road, explains Preston. Sometimes that process can take months. “You find out what you can do and you have the resources available to create a recipe for success,� Cheese puffs are an especially popular treat. says Preston. The team also maintains a Facebook page to stay in touch even when they’re not on the trains. “It’s all about building relationships.� The program has also reaped benefits for the transit system by helping reduce property and violent crime. In 2011, property crime dropped 15 per cent and violent crime dropped 14 per cent per 100,000 transit passenger boardings. The next stop for Preston and Stratidakas is the sprawling Broadway-Commercial station in Vancouver, where the Expo and Millennium lines intersect. An elderly panhandler hunches forward from his wheelchair at the station’s Broadway entrance. “He’s not really our demographic,� says Preston. A tour around the station and a block up and down Commercial, and a peek through the windows of a coffee shop turns up no groups of loitering kids, no familiar faces. “A lot of it is reading body language,� says Preston. “We’re able to read situations.� Not that coming up empty is a bad thing, says Stratidakis. “Sometimes when there’s no youth around it’s a good thing. They might be in school, or more settled and stabilized in their life.�

Merril Hall, Linda Cant and Carolyn McLaughlin study a Canterbury Bell in McLaughlin’s New Westminster garden. They’re members of the Garden Gals, who meet every month to sketch and paint their gardens. An exhibit of their work will be on display during the Cultural Crawl on Aug. 11 and 12.

When Carolyn McLaughlin plans her spring planting, she knows her garden just can’t look good in her backyard, it also has to look good on paper. Or canvas. McLaughlin is one of the Garden Gals, a group of about 15 members of the New Westminster Horticultural Society who meet monthly to sketch and paint in each other’s gardens, the gardens of Queen’s Park, or even further afield on special trips. As she fills the flower beds around her Sapperton home, McLaughlin says she seeks out plants she knows will complement each other, or offer interesting shapes and textures to tantalize her artistic eye. “I can see the garden as a painting,� says McLaughlin. Capturing the blossoms of their labour is just another extension of their creative sensibilities, says another of the Garden Gals, Merril Hall. “It’s a natural,� says Hall. “Gardening is a form of art.� One that’s fleeting, changing weekly, daily and even hourly at the whim of the weather.

a garden in a sketch book or on a sheet of canvas freezes it forever in a moment of time. “You know it’s not going to last, so you must capture it now,� says McLaughlin. Studying the blossoms and leaves for their art has also given the Garden Gals a deeper appreciation for the boundless beauty and variety of nature, says Linda Cant. “It makes you more aware of the shapes and colours of the garden,� says Cant. “My usual perceptions have been enhanced. You see the gardens in a different light.� “You take the time to really look at the garden and study it,� says McLaughlin. “Most people don’t stop to look at the centre of a flower.� The Garden Gals came together about five years ago, mostly by serendipity. Bonded by their passion for gardening, most didn’t know of each other’s private abilities as artists. Gathering regularly, they’re able to share their skills and knowledge as gardeners and as artists, providing support, encouragement and a critical eye for each other’s work.

officer reported to dispatch he had been shot at and asked for backup. Kelowna RCMP Supt. Bill McKinnon told Black Press it appeared the suspects changed vehicles a couple of times with more shots being fired as the chase headed toward Vernon with the suspects reportedly driving a vehicle on two rims after blowing the front tires. “They were not allowing any traffic onto Westside Road, and as the suspect vehicle was getting closer you could hear all the sirens,” a still-trembling witness told the Vernon Morning Star. “Police then stopped traffic and told all of us to get down in our vehicles. The suspect vehicle raced through there and I know I heard shots fired, or maybe it was tires being blown out, but then they were

racing toward Vernon.” The chase ended about an hour after it began. The two men were held in custody on previous warrants. On Thursday, charges of attempted murder and committing an offence with a firearm were laid against Shawn Adam Wysinski, 32, Michael Edward Ellis, 39, and Ashley Collins, 19. The men were also charged with operating a vehicle while being pursued by police, failing to stop in order to evade police, and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. Collins underwent surgery but her injuries were not considered life threatening. NWPD have yet to disclose if it had been determined which gun fired the bullet that hit her. ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

Donate a car, change a life

The New Westminster Museum Presents

Sarah Payne Black Press

A donated Mercedes Benz has prompted Douglas College to collect $5,000 in student aid donations through an innovative website, and help sick kids at the same time. The kid-sized car — a convertible, 1960s-style Mercedes Benz 300SL, to be exact — was donated by a staff member who works in the finance department and regularly sees students in financial need. “I’m a strong supporter of the [Douglas College] foundation because I believe in education, and sometimes kids don’t have the money or the support to make it,” said Alec Logan, the manager of accounting information for self-funded activities. “It’s a crucial time in their life...and sometimes they just need that little bit of support to make the decision to pursue an education,” he added. Logan had recently purchased his own Mercedes and was back at the dealership for a service appointment when he discovered the pint-sized car was available for purchase — the only Mercedes you can buy for less than $1,000, he joked — so Logan added it to his bill and donated it to Douglas. Andrew Senjack, alumni relations co-ordinator, decided to use the Indiegogo site to collect donations after a colleague suggested it, noting it had been used to raise nearly $700,000 for the bullied bus monitor in the U.S. “We thought maybe this site was something we could use to our advantage,” Senjack said, since the Indiegogo site allows donors to post comments, and it provides a link to information about Douglas College as well for any non-local donors. Staff spent about an hour shooting a video in the Douglas College atrium, featuring a little boy

The school hopes to raise $5,000 in donations to pay for tuition and books for a full-time Douglas College student for one year. If they reach their goal by Oct. 4, they’ll donate the car to the Ronald McDonald House for Sick Children. “Not only is this supporting students, which one of our own staff initiated, but it’s going to end up bringing smiles to the faces of sick kids,” said Hazel Postma, associate external vice-president. In just a few days the fund has collected nearly $700 toward its goal. For more information, and to donate, visit www.indiegogo.com and search for Douglas College.

OPINION

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

NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Picture of privacy

LAST WEEK:

B.C.’s Privacy Commissioner is examining the use of cruisermounted cameras by police to scan licence plates from passing vehicles. Critics have objected, citing privacy concerns, that the RCMP and other forces are using the platescanning technology for purposes beyond the original intent. The camera-equipped police cars scan passing or parked vehicle plates against ICBC and national police databases. Police instantly see if a car is stolen or uninsured—or if the probable driver is unlicensed, prohibited from driving, wanted by police or accused of a crime. Each time a flagged vehicle is detected, its time and location are recorded and kept for two years. Rob Wipond, one of three independent researchers whose work prompted the privacy investigation, said the criteria for generating actionable hits has crept from traffic violations to data like whether you’ve ever gone to court to seek child custody or had a mental health episode that involved police. That might seem laudable when it helps police find an abduction victim, solve a murder or keep sex offenders from parking outside schools. But Wipond envisions British-style uses, like recording the licence plates of vehicles coming to a lawful demonstration, then using ALPR to detect, intercept and slow the same protesters headed to future gatherings. Wipond theorizes police algorithms could one day decide that because someone went to a suspicious location, they should be flagged for closer scrutiny in the future—data that might result in them not being allowed to fly or cross borders. Would you be comfortable being tracked all the time? Would if affect your sense of freedom? We need to determine a fair and proportionate use for the technology, how to apply it while still respecting one’s right to privacy. – Black Press

Pipeline posturing doesn’t help

T

he B.C. Liberal government is taking its new hard-line approach to federal environmental hearings on the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline proposal in September. Environment Minister Terry Lake has filed the B.C. government’s notice to crossexamine Enbridge, one of the world’s biggest pipeline operators. Lake outlined the “tough questions” B.C. representatives will ask about spill response capacity on land and sea, tanker escort tugboats, pipe wall thickness, and Enbridge’s sluggish response to a pipeline rupture in Michigan. That’s all fine, and to be expected after Premier Christy Clark’s high-profile confrontation with Alberta Premier Alison Redford going into the recent premiers’ meeting in Halifax. Clark’s demands for “worldleading” safety and spill response, as well as meeting the constitutional obligation to consult and accommodate aboriginal groups along the route, are mostly a statement of the obvious. Her call for a “fair

share” of proceeds from exported oil to reflect B.C.’s risk has been assaulted from all sides. Pipeline opponents seized on Clark’s suggestion that a major oil spill might be tolerable if there was enough money in it for B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix picked up the theme as he conducted his own belated tour of the proposed route to reiterate his opposition.  There had been earlier hints from Alberta that B.C. might need further rewards for the risk. But when Clark made the “fair share” demand public, Redford was moved to channel Margaret Thatcher, declaring: “The Premier of Alberta is not going to blink on royalties.” The lady’s not for blinking, but neither is B.C.’s Iron Snowbird, as Preston Manning dubbed Clark this spring.

amount to much. I’ll stand by my January prediction that the Enbridge proposal is unlikely to proceed, mainly due to the tangled state of aboriginal claims. Wealthy U.S. foundations that view the B.C. North Coast as their 500-year eco-experiment will be happy to help fund a decade of legal challenges, while continuing the media-spinning and protest support they are doing now. Even if some way can be found to levy a B.C. tax on revenues from the Northern Gateway pipeline, it’s no solution. For one thing, it would confer an advantage to the Trans-Mountain pipeline that has been shipping Alberta oil to Burnaby and the U.S. for more than 60 years. The competing expansion proposal by Trans-Mountain’s current owner, Kinder Morgan, shows the inconsistency of opposition to pipelines. Does anyone really believe that a new pipeline built to the highest standards ever would be too dangerous, while a 60-year-old pipeline is acceptable? Protesters have an easy target in

Kinder Morgan. With a tenfold increase to 25 tankers a month proposed to sail under the Lions Gate bridge, a heavy oil spill from Second Narrows to Stanley Park would be catastrophic to Vancouver’s environment and economy. Tankers have made that trip safely nearly 100 years, but the congested modern shipping lane offers more threat of collision, and clearing Burrard Inlet for near-daily tanker transits would disrupt the rest of B.C.’s shipping trade. An Angus Reid poll last week showed as many as half of respondents remain open-minded about the costs and benefits of new oil pipelines across B.C. Unlike B.C. politicians, they seem interested in learning more before making up their minds. Dix and the NDP ran to the front of the anti-pipeline parade early, as they did with the carbon tax and other issues. Clark began the Northern Gateway discussion with a principled position to wait for the result of the federal review, but that’s apparently out the window with an election looming.

Voters won’t forget I know that the councillors at City Hall have a very important job and, given the times, a difficult one. But considering their recent position that they will carry through with the office tower regardless of what or how the citizens (taxpayers) say or vote is, at best, disappointing and, at worst, arrogant and undemocratic.  So maybe council should try to convince us that they are right and the skeptics are wrong, or at least make an effort to allay our concerns. Where is the accountability and respect to those who pay the bills? But that, it seems, is what is not going to happen. Council will go ahead with this development regardless.  Is it because council has backed itself into a corner and can’t extricate itself ?  Many questions are still not answered. Why did we get into a multimillion dollar tower with little or no public input and without a signed agreement with the developer? Why were things not nailed down beforehand? If the civic centre was not financially feasible as a standalone project, why did we go ahead with it?  And if it was as I understood it to be, then what’s the problem with capping it at the roof ? Council’s disappointing and unacceptable attitude towards citizens’ concerns on this most important issue will be long remembered.  Bill Zander New Westminster •••••

Wow! Thanks to the media, the truth about our special interest mayor, councillors and some city staff is coming to light. Through investigative reporting and determination, the credibility and integrity of this New West group is in serious jeopardy.  Regardless of whom is spearheading what, the fact remains that New West taxpayers alone should decide if they want to risk the burden of an additional $59 million debt load, combined with the huge debt already accumulated over the past 10 years. Some have said the total debt with this borrowing bylaw will edge $100 million—for a population of only 60,000.  We could highlight Mayor Wayne Wright’s rhetoric — “we have several people interested”

in purchasing the building — but we know that no one believes this, given his “we have developers lined up to take it over” pre-election false bravado. We could even enjoy his amusing comment that “we are on target for budget,” which smells strangely like his preelection promise of Westminster Pier Park being on time and on budget when he knew it was nearly a million dollars over budget—and that is for only half a park.   What this is actually about is a fight between the people and the politicians—the people saying they want to hear the details and be heard via referendum. The other is the politicians saying they will do as they please regardless of public opinion. Either way, win or lose, our politicians’ credibility and integrity has been seriously tainted. Paul Thompson New Westminster

Keen to see Downtown come to life Despite all the “who saids” and “who signed” and “how much,” in the end anticipate the city almost doubling the return on the public’s investment in the office tower above the civic centre, if and when it decides to sell. Will the alarmists apologize when that happens? Hmm. This civic centre and tower will provide a significant direct economic impact to our local economy. It’s the key component to restoring our Downtown city core. A muchneeded lift that will bring people to our city. While out in our city, I have asked business owners for their opinion. Feedback was very encouraging with support for the civic centre. Most said it will attract people into our city by way of increasing retail services and hospitality. Another said “It’s about time!” and it can’t happen fast enough. I also listened to a proprietor about the possible sale of the civic centre office tower, and he suggested re-locating our dated City Hall into the tower and sell off our existing City Hall and its land to a developer.

Along with the services already in place in New Westminster, adding a new civic centre with a well-rounded design and performance plan will surely attract people to our city. We will all win. It’s a done deal. I look forward to watching our old Downtown come out of its coma and have a life again, with hustle and bustle and prosperity. Sandra Jaser New Westminster

Keep up the fight Re: Crosty starts campaign to stop borrowing bylaw I am totally in agreement with Mr. Crosty and his cause. My wife and I have gathered over 900 signatures on our petition, here in Pitt Meadows, to keep our taxes down and question the huge debt that our city has acquired. Don’t give up! The residents of our cities— any city or municipality—pay taxes to pay the wages of those in charge. The mayor of New Westminster was on the Bill Good show on CKNW on Thursday, and when asked how much money the city has borrowed so far, he waffled. He said the city has people who take care of that. Right! Don’t get me started on that! If our cities would “keep up” maintenance on what we already have, which is much cheaper than replacing buildings, we wouldn’t be in this predicament. Get back to the basics, mayors and councillors, and look after what you already have. Cities can be very, very close to being debt free. Preserve the history, stop building new structures that aren’t needed when buildings are left empty. If we all just got fed up with our homes after not looking after them, could we afford to move to new digs every time something needed fixing? Must be nice if you can, but the majority can’t. Fix it! Keep up the fight Mr. Crosty! Tom Murray Pitt Meadows

New tactics explored to unclog hospitals Expert review of Fraser Health found no silver bullet Jeff Nagel Black Press

Fraser Health officials say they’re taking new steps to reduce hospital congestion after the release of findings of a review by an independent expert panel. One of the new methods includes having home care staff based at

emergency departments to intercept incoming elderly patients who can be redirected back home and treated there with sufficient home support, according to Marc Pelletier, Fraser’s vice-president of clinical operations. “They can be discharged home with a commitment of home care resources that might be visiting two hours later at that person’s home,” he said. Pelletier said that’s one of a number of ongoing strategies Fraser

Despite hopes for a silver bullet solution, the Fraser Health Congestion Review Panel said in a report released in June it “couldn’t identify any significant gaps” in the region’s patient access and flow strategies.

is exploring to try to limit the number of people who are admitted to hospital and reduce the average length of time they stay there. Modest gains in various areas could translate into a huge number of patients across the system, helping cut congestion. Despite hopes for a silver bullet solution, the Fraser Health Congestion Review Panel said in a report released in June it “couldn’t identify any significant gaps” in the region’s patient access and flow strategies. It did suggest potential improvements to explore in several areas. Hospital staff were concerned about the quality of care they could give patients in overflow situations who are routinely treated in hallways, the report said, but

many care workers “had a sense of resignation about these conditions as intractable.” The report was released at the same time Health Minister Mike de Jong directed Fraser to pursue measurable improvements in five key areas to reduce hospital congestion within 150 days. One of the numbers de Jong wants to see drop is the roughly 100 patients across Fraser Health who at any given time are being treated in hallways or other areas not designed for clinical care. The second target area is a drop in C. difficile infections, where alarmingly high rates of the bacteria-spread illness prompted the health region send roving “super clean” teams from hospital to hospital earlier this year.

washing strategies are paying off, Pelletier said. “We’re seeing a reduction in C difficile to the lowest rates we’ve seen in a long time.” That should help on the congestion front because patients with hospital-acquired infections tend to stay in hospital longer. Other minister-set targets include a cut in the average length of patient stay in hospital, an increase in the percentage of admitted ER patients getting a hospital bed within 10 hours; and a goal of treating 90 per cent of broken hip cases within 48 hours. Pelletier said he isn’t concerned the new initiatives might push patients out of hospital too soon, adding staff are “very sensitive to discharging people inappropriately.” The expert panel interviewed more than 500 staff and focused on Surrey Memorial and Royal Columbian hospitals. Fraser Health last year treated 3.9 per cent more hospital patients and recorded a five per cent increase in inpatient days as well as a 7.3 per cent jump in ER visits. The 2,200 acute care beds across 12 hospitals are routinely full. Pelletier noted the new Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre in Surrey has helped take pressure off Surrey Memorial by becoming the new home for day surgery and most diagnostic tests. Also on the horizon is the 2014 opening of the new $512-million expansion at Surrey Memorial, adding 150 extra beds. The province has also committed to a huge redevelopment of Royal Columbian Hospital and expansions or redesigns are also under consideration at Delta, Eagle Ridge, Burnaby and Peace Arch hospitals.

Transit Police will start giving advance warning of where they will set up enforcement blitzes to nab transit fare cheaters. Spokesperson Anne Drennan said public notice of fare checks through the media, on the web and via Twitter will begin in September as TransLink intensifies Black Press file its efforts to combat fare Transit Police will have another fare enforcement blitz in September. Each year, they cheating and make those issue about 60,000 fare evasion tickets. who are caught pay their fines. “We think if we advise people write tickets on the system. tickets. where we’re going to be doing Until now only Transit Police Asked if that violation rate our fare checks they will realize could issue fines, but that power – just one per cent – was low, we are out there in force and is now extending to other Drennan said rates vary. they have to buy their fare TransLink security personnel “They always find when they tickets or they’ll be getting and SkyTrain attendants. go out there are people who violation tickets,” she said.

Drennan also noted the publicized blitzes aren’t the only spots fare cheats could be caught. “Just because certain people might avoid the places where we’re particularly ramping up our enforcement doesn’t mean they won’t be checked at other locations.” New provincial legislation also takes effect in September giving TransLink wider powers to go after violators, most of whom did not pay their $173 fines. ICBC must now deny licence and vehicle insurance renewals and TransLink will be able to dispatch bill collectors, among other potential methods. Unpaid fare evasion fines averaged $4 million a year in recent years. TransLink will also get the paid fine revenue from now on, instead of the province. There will also be more enforcers able to

Provincial government employees will stage a one-day strike at ministry offices in Surrey, Kelowna, Campbell River and 100 Mile House on Aug. 7, the second such action since rejecting the government’s wage offer. The B.C. Government and Service Employees Union served strike notice with the Labour Relations Board Thursday. Three forests ministry offices are targeted, with 40 staff in Surrey, 50 in Campbell River and 60 combined at

transportation and forest ministry offices in 100 Mile House. Another 30 union members in agriculture, health, environment and labour ministry jobs in Kelowna are to refuse a day’s work. The BCGEU repeated its promise that forest firefighting, courts, corrections and other essential services won’t be affected by rotating strike action. The first strike was at liquor distribution warehouses on July 3, after the union rejected an offer of a two per cent wage increase this year and another 1.5 per cent next year. The BCGEU is seeking about six per cent over two years after three years without a raise. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon has warned that with the province in deficit, the wage offer could be withdrawn. The government describes its current negotiating mandate as “co-operative gains,” where pay increases must be financed by cost reductions in work arrangement. The BCGEU proposed increasing revenues by opening more government liquor stores on Sundays, and deploying deputy sheriffs for traffic enforcement. Union negotiators said both ideas were rejected.

Many seniors are moving in with their adult children to help care for grandkids and provide some relief from a sagging economy.

Things to consider when building an in-law suite Perhaps thanks to a struggling economy and an unpredictable stock market that has resulted in many retirement nest eggs being decimated, more and more adult children are welcoming their aging parents into their homes. Such living situations have led to a growth in in-law suites. In-law suites are often created by converting a room in the house, such as the basement or even a garage, into a livable suite. Such suites can benefit elderly relatives who might have been dealt an unforeseen financial blow. But in-law suites can also benefit younger homeowners who want to see their parents more. In addition, when older men and women move in with their adult children, they can provide some necessary relief from the escalating cost of daycare. But before building an in-law suite in their home, homeowners might want to heed the following tips. Be certain it is legal. Making changes to your home may require a permit, particularly if your in-law suite will be an entirely new addition to your property and not just a strict room remodel. Contact your municipality to ensure the project is within your rights as a homeowner.

consider the health of your in-laws when making plans. Many in-law suites are occupied by aging relatives who might not be able to get up and down stairs as easily as they used to. That makes accessibility of the suite a top priority. Typically, it’s best to locate in-law suites on the first floor, so relatives won’t find it difficult to get in and out of the suite. don’t overlook privacy. Just because your parents or in-laws will be moving in doesn’t mean they don’t still value their privacy. Chances are your relatives will initially feel as though they are invading your space and your privacy, so be sure the suite affords adequate privacy to all members of the household. It might be best to build the suite so it has its own separate entrance from the rest of the home. The suite should also have its own full bathroom and, if possible, its own kitchen area so your in-laws can cook for themselves and entertain their own guests without feeling like a burden. A second kitchen is also something to discuss with the municipality, as some locales prohibit having two complete kitchens in a single residence.

tailor certain amenities to the elderly. If your in-laws are older, install certain amenities, such as grab bars in the shower and bathroom, during the initial construction so you won’t have to make changes down the road. Install easy-open drawers and make sure the suite has ample lighting. rememBer to install safety features. Safety features like fire, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are a necessity. Make sure the alarms on each of these detectors are loud enough so elderly men and women who have hearing loss can hear them without issue. Make sure all walkways leading to the in-law suite have motion detecting lamps at night to reduce risk of falling. Also, if the suite will be a separate building from your house, such as a converted pool house or detached garage, install an intercom system that connects with the main house so your relatives can easily reach you in case of emergency. In-law suites are becoming more popular as a greater number of older adults are moving in with their adult children. Such suites can bring families closer together and prove beneficial for all parties involved.

Volunteering is good fun at the Games

D

arlene Currie can’t actually remember when she first became a volunteer for the BC Seniors Games Society but she does remember she did come by it by default.

“A few years back the president of the society resigned and the vicepresident took over and they needed someone to fill in as vicepresident for the rest of the year,” she said. “I had no experience but it seemed like it wasn’t going to be a difficult job because it entailed mostly dealing with different sports. It really seemed like something I’d be interested in. “But when I found out the hours and the meetings and difficulties it entailed, I decided no way, this isn’t for me and since I knew I never wanted to be president because that job is full time so I did not run for vice-

president when the position came up the following year.” But when the position of rules chair became available, a volunteer position, she accepted the appointment and the former national women’s basketball player and coach has been doing it ever since. It has its challenges and her mandate is to ensure the Games are run according to the rules that are set down either for the sport or the ones that have been adjusted to allow seniors to compete. She isn’t without help. “We have two managers responsible for the Games that work closely with the host society. Sometimes there is a matter of interpretation and I don’t always have the answer so I have to look up the rules like anybody else, but it helps to have a committee of

seven others besides myself and we divide up the work, most of it goes through me and then we try and make it as fair for every event as possible.” The 25th anniversary Burnaby BC Seniors Games, Aug. 21-25,

will be massive with 26 events, a huge challenge for director of sport volunteer Wayne Peppard, who says Darlene has come to his rescue often. “She is to be congratulated for her commitment to the BC

Seniors Games Society,” he said. “Darlene chairs the rules committee at this vital time in setting our events schedules. She is now the key link in setting the stage for a successful 2012 Burnaby BC Seniors Games. We are extremely fortunate to have her dedication and energy.” And while the Games are underway Darlene will not be on the sidelines watching. She’ll be on the playing field participating in women’s slo-pitch. And that, too, came about by default. “When I was teaching, and I’ve been retired now for 15 years, one of my teaching partners said we need you to play slo-pitch and at the time I had a [rotator cuff] problem and I couldn’t even lift my arm but he didn’t care just that on their mixed team they needed a living, breathing 55-year-old female and I qualified and he didn’t care what my experience was although I had played some fast pitch.” Please see cuRRIE, A16

Currie top-notch basketball player ⫸

continued from page a15

At that point she started playing slo-pitch in a Lower Mainland league and continued to carry on playing in the Senior Games, “some 16 or 17 years now.” And her proudest moment through all this came a few years back when “We went from being token females on a mixed team to where we applied and received permission to have a women-only division where this year there are eight women’s teams playing all with reasonable good calibre so I think women’s slo-pitch should remain in the Games.” A native of Calgary, Darlene was active in high school as a fastball and basketball player,

the latter of which would eventually make her one of the finest women players and coaches in the sport in this country. She moved to Burnaby and for the next 35 years the now resident of New Westminster would become a household name in international women’s basketball circles leading Canadian teams to the Pan American Games in 1959, 1963 and 1967 as a player-coach. She became a full time coach following the ’67 Pan Am Games and took her teams to tournaments in Europe and South America and to the 1969 world championships in Cuba. She took the team to China in 1972, before it became

fashionable for oversees teams to travel for competition to that country. “I enjoyed playing when I was younger and coaching as I got older. And as you get older you realize you can’t do things you once could and have to accept that. But I still get great satisfaction seeing somebody enjoying the game I love.” And, we imagine, all playing by the rules.

move either because they can no longer manage in the size or layout of their current home, or because their loved one has passed away and they need to downsize. This situation is becoming even more common as our population continues to age. The 2011 census data released this past July reported that nationally 14.8 per cent of Canadians are 65 or older while in Burnaby, approximately 13.8 per cent of residents are in their golden years. While ensuring aging loved ones are in the safest and most comfortable living arrangements possible, families must also ensure they are careful during this often-fragile time. Moving from a place of many memories can be a very trying experience for our aging loved ones. Families need to be both sensitive and supportive when helping their parent or other aging loved ones find appropriate living arrangements. Here are a few tips to facilitate a smooth transition:

To learn more about hearing, hearing loss and tinnitus, visit www.experthearingsolutions.com

Don’t move in haste

Encourage aging loved ones to take their time when getting ready to move. This is especially important if the move is due to the death of a partner. It is best if your aging parent moves at their own pace. There may be a period of grieving but helping to bring the memories to the new home can make a world of difference. Be respectful

A senior’s home is often filled with years’ worth of albums, trinkets and other memories. So being respectful about what your aging loved one values is critical. Your mom or dad may want to hang on to a lot of their old things. As much as possible, let them decide what is important and what is not. Let them make their own decisions and move at a pace that is comfortable for them.

consult with family

Finally, it is extremely important that the key family members are consulted. Because the move will affect the lives of a number of people in the family they should all be included in any major decisions as much as possible. Fact finding and preplanning is a much better way prepare for the discussion prior to the move rather than arguing over details afterward.

select location carefully There are a number of factors to consider when selecting a location. Proximity to family, shopping services, health care services, and accessibility are just a few of the aspects to consider. Location becomes really important as we age. Families need to find a location that ensures their aging parent will be stimulated and comfortable.

Over 100 seniors, members of the City of Burnaby’s Citizen Support Services Gadabouts Program, enjoyed a Country BBQ at the Shadbolt Centre recently, with Richard Theiss entertaining on the accordion. Thanks to the generosity of CUPE Local 23, which raises funds with its annual golf tournament to sponsor a Kids Lunch Program offered in several Burnaby parks during the summer months, these isolated seniors were able to attend this event free of charge.

RCMP abuse lawsuit gets underway Former BBB head latest RCMP accuser to step forward Jeff Nagel Black Press

Business Bureau, said she’s joined the suit in an attempt to see justice and a fair hearing for the victims. “We didn’t join to be harassed or be humiliated or be told that our career depended on us being friendly or having relations with our direct supervisors,” MacLean told reporters. She said she complained to other officers when her supervisor pressured her to be “friendly” in exchange for advancement, but nothing was done and she quit the force in 1979 after he gave her a poor assessment. “Years later, nothing has changed,” MacLean said. “This systemic culture in the RCMP of harassment and not accepting these women as equals has to stop.” Lawyers expect a long legal battle with the RCMP on behalf of potentially hundreds of women who allege abusive behaviour by other Mounties while serving in the force. It’s expected to take until sometime in 2013 for a ruling on whether the proposed classaction lawsuit will be certified. At the centre of the case is former Nanaimo RCMP Const. Janet Merlo, whose claim alleges she was the victim of “persistent and ongoing genderbased discrimination and harassment” by male Mounties at the detachment and that the RCMP did nothing to stop it. Jason Murray, one of Merlo’s lawyers, said more than 200 other women – current and former Mounties – have stepped forward to join the potential
