Larry Sewell is looking forward to participating in this year’s Terry Fox Run in Burnaby again. He was unable to run last year and only help out as a volunteer as he struggled with symptons that turned into his own battle with cancer.

Terry Fox Run hits home for Sewell Mario Bartel

It will be a special moment for Larry Sewell when he laces up his sneakers to for this year’s Terry Fox Run on Sept. 16. Sewell looks forward to the run every year as a way to honour his adoptive parents, both of whom he lost to cancer. But he was unable to participate last year, helping out

as a volunteer instead, because the pain in his back was too great. That pain turned out to be his own battle with cancer. Sewell was a fit, active 54-year-old who ran, cycled, played golf with his buddies. But five months of back pain had curtailed most of those pastimes. He saw a chiropractor, got massages, thought it would eventually just pass. When the right side of Sewell’s

groin area started to swell up, he decided to see a doctor. The reaction of the nurse told him his persistent pain was more serious than a pinched nerve or strained muscle. He was sent for a battery of tests, CT scan, ultrasound. One doctor suspected lymphoma, then the word pancreas came up. Sewell was stricken with fear. “My heart was just thumping,”

says Sewell, whose father had succumbed to pancreatic cancer, a big, strapping man reduced by the illness to a shadow of his former self in less than eight months. He was referred to an oncologist who ordered even more tests. In November, he underwent a biopsy on the lymph nodes on his groin’s right side. He waited 10 fearful days for the results; they were inconclusive. Please see EAGER, A9

Terry Kelly hasn’t shaken the theatre bug that bit him 50 years ago while a student at South Mario Bartel

Terry Kelly caught the theatre bug at Burnaby South secondary. More than 50 years later, he still hasn’t shaken it. Along the way he graduated from the National Theatre School in Montreal, appeared in stage productions from Stratford to the Vancouver Playhouse as well as countless roles in TV shows like MacGyver, Neon Rider, The Commish, DaVinci’s Inquest and films like Star 80, Walking Tall and the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies. But Kelly’s biggest professional challenge may be corralling the talents, experiences and egos of three fellow senior actors as the director of Heroes, a new production of Tom Stoppard’s award-winning play about three cantankerous First World War veterans being put on by FOG Theatre at the Performing Arts Lodge in Vancouver from Sept. 6 to 30. John Innes, William Samples and Michael Dobbin have more than 100 years experience between them. That’s a lot of craft, and a lot of bad habits to tame. “As you get further along, you get crustier,� says Kelly, 68. “So you have to find a way to drive around that. Actors gather tricks over the years but we can see each other’s tricks.

Burnaby resident Curtis Moss competed in the javelin at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Though he threw the javelin 78.22 metres in the qualifying round, his fifth best throw ever, it wasn’t enough to get him into the 12-man final. While taking some downtime following the Olympics last week, Moss responded via email to questions posed to him by the NewsLeader: What was the experience of participating in your first Olympics like? I had a great time, I was completely inspired by the experience and getting to compete with some of the athletes I have only seen on TV or YouTube has made my dreams and goals even more real. I feel now that I belong there and that next time I will be a better athlete for having this experience. I also got to meet the Queen! She came to the village to say hello to representatives from the Commonwealth and myself and Dylan Wykes, a marathon runner, got to meet her, shake her hand and chit-chat for a little while. Were you nervous when the qualification round began, or when you got into the stadium? I was not nervous, I don’t get nervous to compete. I was excited by the atmosphere and walking into a stadium with 80,000 people screaming and cheering was a thrill of a lifetime. I look forward to many more of those experiences. How did you feel about your performance? You seemed to get progressively better with each throw, but didn’t reach the distance you had in Victoria when you set a personal best. As it turns out, that was my fifth best throw ever so I was not upset with the performance and not thrilled either. I got there and performed decently well but it’s a whole different level. I know where I need to improve and how to approach the competition next time. I did feel more comfortable and more confident as the event went on and I think that translated into further distances.  Did your training in Germany go well? Was it difficult not being able to communicate with your personal coach Don Steen during the event? Training in Germany went well but it was hard to be away and not experience all that the Games has to offer. When I got to the stadium, the seats that were reserved for Don and [girlfriend Jacqueline Muscat] were on the other side of the stadium so Jackie went to the ticket counter and got them passes to sit right by where I was competing with five minutes to spare. It was great having him there for a few minutes before I competed and for the competition itself. He really helped me to adjust from 74 to 78 metres.  What was the atmosphere like participating in such an event? The atmosphere was great, it was too loud to hear yourself talk at times and the adrenaline was incredible. I think I will be able to recall that experience to use at other meets.  Had you ever performed before such a large audience? The biggest crowd I ever competed in front of before was less than half that of this stadium when I was in Beijing for World Junior Championships in 2006 and a meet I attended in Morocco this May. This was much, much bigger

and going to see events beforehand and being in the opening ceremonies helped to curb some of the shock when I got onto the field. What was it like being in the Olympic Village? Seeing some of my sports idols walking around casually and seeing them as normal people was surreal. The Village was enormous with 16,000 inhabitants during the games (10,000 athletes) and free food throughout the village. It would be an amazing little town if athletes lived like that all of the time but being around so many likeminded people was motivating and educational. Did you get to see any other Olympic events? Did you get to a US basketball game like you hoped? Unfortunately I did not get to see any other sports as I was in Germany most of the time and when I was back I had to rest before competition. I did see quite a bit of the track and field including the 200m semi-finals, the women’s 200m final and the men’s 4x100m relay final. The relay was devastating for a lot of Canadians and all of us athletes in attendance really felt for them, but being able to see the World Record go down to the Jamaicans was amazing.  What surprised you the most about being at the Olympics? I was surprised by the normalcy at times. You would see David Rudisha (winner of the 800 metres from Kenya) eating lunch and sharing a laugh like everyone else and the next thing you know he is on the track breaking the world record. The advice I had gotten beforehand was absolutely true with several experienced athletes telling me, “It’s just another track meet.” The most successful athletes seemed to approach it exactly that way.

Big deal for Weatherhaven Gary McKenna Black Press

A Port Coquitlam company with Burnaby connections will play a pivotal role in the fabrication of state-of-the-art mobile shelters that will be used by the Canadian Armed Forces. Wesgar and Wesgar Completions have been contracted to provide sheet metal and assembly work for 400 of the 900 units expected to be built over the duration of the three-year contract. The first mobile shelter rolled off the assembly line Thursday and will be used as part of the Canadian military’s overseas missions and humanitarian operations. Ray Castelli, the chief executive officer of Weatherhaven, a Burnaby company that designed the units and received the federal contract, said the project shows that Canadian manufacturers can compete internationally.  “We won the contract in a competitive bid, beating out U.S. and European suppliers,” he said. “We can build this project — even though it is a $130-million project — we can do all this work in Canada.” Weatherhaven and Ottawa’s DEW Engineering teamed up to bid on the contract in August 2009.  Castelli said $60 million worth of work will be conducted in British Columbia, divided among a supply chain consisting of 47 companies. He believes there is opportunity to potentially export the units, noting there is significant interest in the product from Australia, Brazil and Europe.  The mobile shelters can be outfitted into 30 different configurations, operating as medical clinics, kitchens and command centres.  Canadian Heritage and Official Languages Minister James Moore said the units will replace 30-year-old technology that is currently being used by the Canadian Armed Forces.   “The greatest threat to the health and safety

of the men and women in our armed forces should never be their equipment,” he said. “And if Canada wants to be a leader on the world stage we want to make sure they have the best equipment possible.” The Port Moody-Westwood-Port Coquitlam MP said the shelters are not only useful for military applications but humanitarian missions as well. He pointed to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti as an example of where the mobile units could be useful. Eighty full-time jobs will be created in B.C. over the course of the three-year contract.

Giving voice to veterans’ stories Mario Bartel

Al Cameron is in a race against time. The freelance TV cameraman is using the journalistic skills he honed covering breaking news in the Maritimes and across the country for more than 10 years to tell the stories of Canada’s war veterans. But they’re dying out. Cameron is the founder, producer and executive director of Veterans Voices of Canada, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving veterans’ first-hand accounts of their experiences in the Second World War, the Korean War, on peacekeeping missions, any conflict that involved the Canadian military forces. Later this month he’ll be in Burnaby to record hour-long interviews with local veterans. Cameron is an accidental historian. His uncle was a veteran with the Nova Scotia Highlanders who survived D-Day, but until just before he died he never wanted to talk about the things he saw and experienced on the battlefield. As Cameron was preparing to record his first interview with his uncle he did pass away. But not before he told his nephew to keep pressing on with his documentation project. After that, Cameron says he couldn’t help but notice the increasing number of Canadian flags in newspaper obituaries, signifying the passing of veterans. His first taped interview in 2006 was with another D-Day vet, then 88 years old. “At the same time it was like I was talking to an 18 year-old,” says Cameron. “As he was telling me

the stories about landing on the beach and hiding for a long time, he was ducking bullets right in front of me. He was there in the moment. That really made an impression on me.” That impression has carried him through interviews with about 600 veterans from coast to coast. Many are reserved at first, reluctant to dip into that dark part of their memory bank. But as the stories, and tears, start to flow, the transformation is remarkable. “It’s just amazing what this does for veterans,” says Cameron. “After they do the interview it’s like a weight has been lifted off their shoulders. They saw so many unbelievable things people shouldn’t see.” Over time, common threads have emerged. “It wasn’t all bad times,” says Cameron. “People think of war as death and destruction, but they made some good friends, they had some good times.” Once he’s completed an interview, a copy is provided to the veterans’ family. Some have found their way into more than 300 schools across Canada, as well as museums and libraries. Eventually they’ll be digitally archived on a website. It’s a labour of love and gratitude, funded by donations and grants. It’s one where time is of the essence. “If we don’t do this now, it’s lost forever,” says Cameron. Cameron pre-arranges all his interviews. He can be contacted at or at 403-358-6313. For more information go to www.

ICBC mishandled


The BC Liberals have completely mishandled ICBC, and the proof came on Thursday, when a review showed the company has been hiring boatloads of senior managers and paying them more each year — with the government apparently oblivious to this fact. There are 32 per cent more managers than in 2007, and they are paid (as a group) 70 per cent more than managers received in 2007. Fifty-four of them made more than $200,000 each in 2011. The Liberals insisted, on taking office in 2001, that ICBC didn’t need to be privatized, nor did there need to be complete competition in the auto insurance sector. They merged ICBC operations with the motor vehicle branch, and had ICBC contribute to policing initiatives, and thus thoroughly muddled it with legitimate government activities. This has made it very difficult to unwind ICBC, the insurance company, from ICBC, the public policy arm. They have also insisted, especially in recent years, that substantial dividends from ICBC go back to the shareholder — the government. This means all ICBC customers, and that’s everyone who owns a vehicle, are paying additional insurance premiums to boost government revenues. This is not a commercial transaction — it’s a tax grab, hidden in the guise of insurance costs. There is no real need to have government operate a car insurance company that forces all drivers to buy at least basic car insurance. If there was true competition most good drivers would see their premiums reduced. They most certainly would not be paying an additional amount to the insurance company which ends up in government coffers. ICBC has been mismanaged by both the NDP and the Liberals. It should be sold off, but that won’t happen any time soon. Drivers will just keep paying more than they should for car insurance. – Black Press

Time for investment in forests


he B.C. government’s emergency committee on timber supply has produced its report, but it leaves many of the big questions unanswered. Can the Burns Lake sawmill, destroyed by fire last winter, be given enough timber to rebuild? It’s likely, committee members concluded, if areas that are currently considered “marginally economic” are harvested. With nearly half the pine in that region dead from beetle infestation, and much of the better timber already cut, that means harvesting areas that would produce only about two thirds of the volume that is currently considered economical to log. Will eight more sawmills have to close once the beetle-killed timber becomes too degraded to cut in the next few years? Committee members hold out hope extending the cut to less economic timber stands can reduce this impact as well. But with the current cut far above historical levels to maximize beetle-kill harvest, some industry contraction seems inevitable. All this depends on adequate

forest inventory and investment in replanting, fertilizing and provision of additional roads and power lines that would allow access to timber and potential bioenergy development. And that is where the political fight lies ahead. The timber supply committee delivered a unanimous report, despite the harsh divisions between the B.C. Liberal and NDP members who serve on it. NDP forest critic Norm Macdonald, vice chair of the committee, agreed it did good work during the seven months it has toured affected areas of the B.C. Interior. But he said the roots of the problem go back a decade, to when the B.C. Liberals started reducing support for forest health just as the beetle epidemic was spreading.

7438 Fraser Park Dr., Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9 |

Ten years ago the government removed the obligation for the province to reforest areas affected by disease and fire. This was not only at the peak of the epidemic, it was one year before devastating wildfires raced through the Interior in the summer of 2003. “In 2002, the government removed its obligation to replant those areas, and cut the budget by 90 per cent,” Macdonald told me. “The three-year budget that’s in front of us is keeping on the downward slide, and it’s not what people in communities are saying is the answer. So that has to change.” The opposition, the auditor general and various forest experts have been blasting the government for the degraded state of the timber inventory, at a time when environmental changes have been sweeping. Steve Thomson, minister of the newly amalgamated forests, lands and natural resource operations ministry, points to the urgent efforts to upgrade the government’s detailed picture of the state of the forests, so it can consider new cutting, planting and fertilizing efforts. But there’s no denying he











came to the job in a crisis that will take more spending in the future, and he will have a hard time finding it as Finance Minister Kevin Falcon looks to balance the books for the 2013 election. If nothing else, the pine beetle epidemic has forced the B.C. government to consider some of the intensive forest management that we hear about in Scandinavia, one of those places that supplies B.C. with wood furniture. And it has prompted renewed interest in offering new forest tenures to aboriginal communities with unresolved resource claims. Under current law, the government can only direct award new forest tenures to aboriginal communities. So part of the committee’s proposed solution is to “expedite negotiations” with the Burns Lake First Nations to give them a chance to harvest some of the marginally economic forest areas that remain.

WHY ARE WE STUCK WITH SKYTRAIN? The ongoing SkyTrain versus light rail debate continues in the lower mainland, which is curious because elsewhere modern LRT made SkyTrain obsolete over two decades ago. Has anyone at TransLink or the SkyTrain lobby noticed that no one builds with SkyTrain anymore? Over 33 years being on the market, only seven have been built. Compare this with over 150 new light rail lines being built during the same period! It’s not SkyTrain, rather it’s the family of driverless lightmetros that have been made obsolete by LRT simply because you can operate LRT as lightmetro, on a grade separated guideway like Seattle, yet retain the ability to operate as lightrail or a streetcar on the same route if need be. This inherent flexibility of

modern light rail made the much more expensive SkyTrain fit for only small people-mover type systems. SkyTrain is driverless and as a result costs more to operate than LRT because instead of drivers, SkyTrain has attendants—over 250 of them at last count and with more technical employees needed for smooth operation. Combined with SkyTrain’s huge construction costs, SkyTrain is a very bad bargain. The SkyTrain mini-metro system has become a pariah of transit systems, yet TransLink, which is sinking fast in a quicksand of debt, still plans for more. Can’t any civic or provincial politicians draw a straight line from SkyTrain to TransLink’s financial chaos? Evidently not. Today, modern light rail has proven to carry more people, faster, at a far cheaper cost than SkyTrain. Malcolm Johnston Delta

INTEGRITY INDEED Re: Time for some thirdparty involvement (Letters, NewsLeader, Aug. 8) I agree with Burnaby North BC Conservative riding president Ariane Eckardt when she states that MLAs who play “loosey-goosey with their expenses and other monies should have the public enraged.” However, she seems unaware of the fact her party’s sole MLA in the B.C. Legislature, John van Dongen, is possibly the most egregious offender when it comes to playing “loosey-goosey” with the $119,000 annual allowance each provincial MLA is given to run their constituency office. Out of that $119,000 annual allowance, van Dongen pays his constituency assistant $78,000 a year, which is far above the norm and caused jaws to drop when it was publicly revealed a couple of months ago. Even more egregious is the fact that van Dongen has thumbed his nose at the Legislature rules which prohibit constituency office staff from being a close relative of the MLA. As is widely known, van

We all share in the sorrow the Sikh community is feeling at this difficult time after the tragic loss of life at the Gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin earlier this month. We are moved by its determination of all communities to overcome racism by fostering understanding and tolerance. In the wake of this tragedy, Gurdwara doors remained open to all people of all religions. Vigils were held CHOUHAN in places of worship across the country to emphasize unity and welcomed all.    As people of all cultures and creeds come together, we learn that the principles of building community, co-operation and interfaith dialogue are the key solutions to helping people develop a greater understanding of our differences. As we mourn this terrible loss, elected officials, our faithbased and community leaders and educational institutions are reminded we must do more to combat racism and to promote tolerance of all faiths and culture.  Raj Chouhan, MLA Burnaby-Edmonds

continued from PAGE A4

What can you take from the experience in training for the next four years? And what did you learn from the experience that you can apply in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro? I now know the procedure to check in and warm up, which was all new to me. There were also technical changes that I saw in film that I need to change for next time. I am constantly learning and these Games may be my greatest learning experience athletically to date. What’s next for you training wise? And are you going to concentrate full time on the javelin, or will you also be going to school or working? I will be returning to school hopefully in January. I am still unsure as to what I want to study but I know that I will eventually want to coach and stay involved in track and field. How I can make that work and make a living I don’t know, but maybe it is time to get creative! I have a large appreciation and passion for the sport and I am getting so much from it that I feel privileged to be able to share my knowledge and experience eventually. Lots more to do in my own career but I feel it is a path I will continue down for a long time to come.  How did the family enjoy the experience, and did you get to communicate with them much? How did they react to your performance?


In a picture taken by his twin brother, Curtis Moss of Burnaby gives the thumbs up to his family and friends as he participates in the qualifying portion of the javelin competition at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London on Aug. 8.

It was great to be able to share this experience with my family, my coach and my girlfriend (and even her neighbours!). I was so happy that I got to see them in the stands, share some time with them afterwards and also get to have a decent performance. I was hoping for more but they were very proud of me and how I handled myself throughout the whole experience. They know what I have gone through to get to where I am today and they have all supported me for so long that it was as much their accomplishment as it was mine. Now it’s time to aim higher and be better for myself and for them next time. Did you get to participate in the closing ceremonies and what was that like? The closing ceremonies

were so exciting. Not going to lie, the Spice Girls and the Monty Python bit were my two favourite parts. It was great to be down with the athletes and get to blow off some steam after a very exhausting and emotional two-week experience. To top it all off I got to meet Russell Brand on my way out of the stadium! Did you get to talk to Christine Sinclair? I did get to talk to her after she was named flag bearer for the closing ceremonies. We both congratulated each other and had a nice talk about some mutual Burnaby friends. It was pretty cool getting to see her there and see her much deserved success recognized by the Canadian Olympic Committee so she could carry our flag.

Eager to get sneakers back on ⫸

Sewell says he was frustrated. He still wasn’t feeling well and he didn’t know what was wrong. “Your emotions are going crazy.” A second biopsy in January finally produced a diagnosis: testicular cancer. Most commonly seen in men aged 20-39 years, Sewell’s doctor had no explanation why it had struck him much later. Just plain bad luck he said, but it was highly curable. From February to April, he endured three rounds of chemotherapy. He felt sick, he lost his hair. His energy depleted, he came to rely on friends to help him manage his daily routines. “You take so much for granted,” says Sewell. “Life isn’t normal, you feel so useless.” Unable to work regularly, he lost himself in comedy shows on TV. He spent a lot of time filling out paperwork to get reimbursed for his medical expenses. “There’s so much you have to go through besides the physical side,” says Sewell. “It just added to the stress.”

By May he was strong enough to get some of his independence back. In June, after more tests, his doctor shook his hand and told him as far as he was concerned, the chemotherapy had done its job. In July he got the all-clear. But, says Sewell, he knows he’ll never really be in the clear. “There’s always that one per cent chance when you go see the doctor.” That’s why he’s eager to get his sneakers back on and at least walk the five kilometre route around Burnaby’s Central Park; he wants to do his part to help improve those odds even more. “It will be a long five km, but it will give me time to pause and think,” says Sewell. “It means everything to me.” This year’s Terry Fox Run will be held Sunday, Sept. 16 at Swangard Stadium. Registration begins at 9 a.m., ceremonies an hour later and the run commences at 10:20 a.m. Pre-registration isn’t required, nor is there any minimum donation.

The back to school season can be bittersweet. Parents may miss having their youngsters around the house when summer officially ends, but it’s also fun for parents to watch kids partake in all that school has to offer. One of the things few parents look forward to come the end of summer vacation is back-to-school shopping. Such shopping can be costly, especially when it’s time to outfit kids with new wardrobes. While a complete wardrobe overhaul might not be necessary, kids typically need to replace a few items they’ve outgrown since Parents can visit department store Web sites to find great deals on back to school clothing for their kids.

Though kids may experience a growth spurt during the summer, shop for items, like socks, that they aren’t likely to grow out of before the backto-school season begins. This affords you time to comparison shop and spread out the cost of replacing your child’s wardrobe instead of being hit with one big bill all at once. ESTABLISH A BUDGET

Without a budget, it’s easy for parents to overspend on backto-school clothing, especially for those parents who wait until the last minute and simply buy the first things they see. Establish a budget, ideally several weeks before your child’s first day of school. Having a budget in place reduces the likelihood that you will overspend, and developing the budget early helps you spread out your spending.


Consignment stores offer name-brand clothing at discounted prices, something parents of ever-growing youngsters can appreciate. Kids will like the name-brand gear, while Moms and Dads will enjoying not having to pay name-brand prices. A consignment store with significant inventory might sell anything from blue jeans and T-shirts to sneakers, shoes and jackets. SWAP CLOTHES WITH OTHER FAMILIES

Clothing swaps between families have grown increasingly popular as more and more parents look to save money on rising clothing costs for their kids. Typically, families will swap clothes, including jackets, if their kids are similar in age and one youngster has outgrown his or her clothes. If you can’t find a family to swap


If the local consignment store has already been raided, consider a discount store like Marshalls or TJ Maxx. These stores typically sell items at heavily discounted prices and often have similar inventories to mall department stores.

A relatively new way for parents to save on back to school clothing is to shop online. A popular store’s Web site might offer discounts that their brick-and-mortar store does not. Parents can also scour a host of coupon Web sites to find special codes they can use at checkout. These codes might offer free shipping or a percentage off the bill when consumers spend a certain amount of money.

A Victoria businessman is heading up a proposal to build a $13-billion oil refinery in Kitimat. David Black, chairman and owner of Black Press, announced Friday he wants to build a world scale oil refinery at Kitimat, B.C. Black told a news conference in Vancouver Friday he is submitting an environmental assessment application to build a “world scale” oil refinery on behalf of Kitimat Clean Ltd., a company owned by Black. The application to the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office is expected this fall. The proposed refinery would be big enough to process all the diluted bitumen carried by Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline. Black said he has had extensive discussions with Enbridge and other players in the Canadian oil industry, but none has so far offered to back the project. Black said he will use his own money to finance the proposal through environmental assessment, which he expects to cost several million dollars. After that, he said investors would be needed to complete it, assuming both the refinery and the pipeline receive approval. He has had preliminary meetings with Kitimat and Terrace councils, as well as the Haisla and Kitselas First Nations in the region. The proposed site is a 3,000-hectare Crown industrial property between Terrace and Kitimat. Kitimat Mayor Joanne Monaghan spoke by phone to the news conference, offering encouragement for the proposal. But Black acknowledged he does not yet have formal support from communities or investors. “I see myself as a catalyst to make this happen,” said Black, who first proposed the idea

to the province and the industry seven years ago when he was chairman of the B.C. Progress Board. Black is working with Glenn McGinnis, a consulting engineer and former manager of the Ioco oil refinery in Port Moody. “We want it [the Kitimat refinery] to be the cleanest and greenest upgrading and refining site in the world,” McGinnis said. The refinery would produce 240,000 barrels per day of diesel, 100,000 barrels per day of gasoline and 50,000 barrels per day of kerosene or aviation fuel, refined from heavy oil. Among those attending the news conference was Art Sterritt, executive director of the Coastal First Nations, a group in the Kitimat area that has strongly opposed the pipeline proposal. Sterritt disputed Black’s assertion that a B.C. refinery “solves half of the problem” with exported oil by shipping refined gasoline, jet fuel and diesel in tankers instead of heavy crude. Those products have their own risks, Sterritt said. Black pointed out that without marine shipments of those fuels, the remote coastal communities Sterritt represents would not be able to function. The lighter fuel products are still an environmental hazard, but they dissipate much more quickly and do not persist for many years like spilled heavy crude, he said. NDP energy critic John Horgan was also skeptical. “At this point, it’s a proposal without business partners and without First Nations and local community support,” Horgan said. “It doesn’t change our position [opposing] the Enbridge Northern Gateway project.” Black said the refinery will mean nearly 6,000 construction jobs over a five-year period, 3,000 permanent jobs at the refinery and tax revenue for various levels of government.

Hastings knocked out

fair 12 – festival square ad – black press size: 3 col x 98 lines (4.3125 in x 7 in)

Canada, with five boys from Burnaby, was ousted from the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa., on Monday. The team from Hastings Community Little League, whose catchment area includes North Burnaby up to Sperling Ave., and north of the Lougheed Highway, was edged 4-3 by Curacao. It was their second loss in the double-knockout tournament after being beaten 8-3 by a Panamanian team Sunday. On Monday, Curacao took a 1-0 lead in the top of the second inning with a run off Hastings starter Cole Dalla-Zanna of Burnaby. Two Burnaby boys then combined to tie the game in the bottom of the third with Steven Moretto driving in leadoff hitter Kobly Buljevic.

Hastings then took a 3-1 lead on a home run by first baseman Noah Hanson-Stafford of Burnaby in the bottom of the fourth. But Dalla-Zanna couldn’t hold the lead surrendering three runs in the top of the fifth. Canada won its opening game downing Mexico 13-9 on Friday. Moretto had three singles, drew two walks, including a base-loaded one in the sixth inning, and scored twice. Dalla-Zanna scored four runs getting on base twice with hits and twice with walks. Dalla-Zanna started the game and was tagged with two earned runs, one hit and three walks in one-plus inning of pitching. Buljevic had a hit and drove in a run as well as making some nifty defensive plays at third base. Carson Ho from Burnaby had a hit, a walk and scored two runs.

Kimberley Newell of Burnaby made 32 saves and blanked the American shootout shooters as Canada defeated the United States 5-4 in the deciding game of a three-game under-18 women’s hockey exhibition series in Blaine, Minn., on Sunday. Newell did not play in the second game, won 3-1 by the U.S. on Saturday, but did in the opener Friday when she

backstopped the Canadians to a 3-2 victory. Newell, a product of St. Thomas More Collegiate who played major midget boys hockey for the Kootenay Ice last season, made 41 saves as the U.S. outshot Canada 43-27 in the first game. “I did expect our team to be slow, it’s our first time together as a team and we’ve travelled a long way to get here,” Newell,

16, told the Canadian Press. “I thought our team started slow in the first, but we came out stronger in the second and third to take it to them.” In the final game Sunday, Canada held a 4-1 lead with five minutes remaining in the third period before bursting out with there goals in a span of 3:13. The under-18 world championship will be held in Vierumaki, Finland in January.
