New Central gym delayed Among numerous capital projects in school district over summer Wanda Chow
While the new Burnaby Central secondary building is a year old, students will have to wait another couple of months before they’ll have a new gymnasium to go with it. The delay is due to the wet weather this spring, explained Russ Sales, Burnaby school district’s director of facilities. “You need the moisture out of the concrete
before you can put the wood [floor] in.” Once that moisture is gone, the wood flooring needs to sit in the space for three to four weeks to acclimatize before crews can begin laying it down, Sales said. Crews started laying the floor on Aug. 27, which will be followed by finishing work and landscaping outside the new wing before the gym opens for use, likely in late October, he said. In the meantime, said Central principal Garth Errico, students will continue on with what they did last spring when the old gym was demolished,

such as using facilities at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex nearby, the school’s student commons area and possibly its dance studio. Sales said students will also have the use of the lower rugby field and the asphalt running track, which won’t have the permanent rubber surface installed until next summer. Burnaby city hall will be installing the artificial turf field inside the track, which can’t be laid in rainy weather, meaning that likely won’t be done until late fall or spring. please see stuDeNts, A4
A Burnaby man is among six people charged in connection with a cocaine and ecstasy smuggling operation, says the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia (CFSEU-BC). The charges follow a CFSEU-BC investigation that spanned B.C., California, Mexico and Peru. The investigation began in 2008 after a tip from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration that Canadian and American citizens were using a sophisticated system of encrypted smartphones to organize international drug transactions. Investigators learned that several of the accused travelled throughout North America and South America, buying cocaine and importing it into Canada, then exporting ecstasy to the U.S. Police made a number of drug seizures, with the first in 2008 when 23 kg (117,000 pills) of ecstasy were seized in Princeton. please see WArrANts, A4

Council seeks way to honour Sinclair
Telus gives students backpacks
Burnaby looking for public input on how to pay tribute to Canadaâ€™s Olympic star
Telus is helping 500 Burnaby students get ready for school by providing them each with a free backpack filled with school supplies. The initiative is part of theâ€™ companyâ€™s annual Kits for Kids program, which distributed 10,000 backpacks across Canada this year. â€œEach parent wants their child to have everything they need to start the school year on the right foot. Unfortunately, several of them are unable to do so due to financial hardships,â€? said Ross Simpson, local president of the TELUS Community Ambassadors, in a press release. â€œNot only do [programs such as Telusâ€™] ease some of the financial burden of back to school shopping, they also level the playing field by ensuring all students start the school year with the same basic supplies as their friends. Children deserve an equal opportunity to succeed, learn and grow.â€? Telus Community Ambassadors are employees and retirees who volunteer at community events and in Telussponsored programs. Since 2006, they have prepared almost 60,000 Kits Y CM MY CY CMY K for Kids backpacks.
Burnaby council is looking for a way to permanently recognize one of its bright lights in sport. Christine Sinclair recently captained the Canadian womenâ€™s soccer team to a bronze medal at the London Olympics, capturing the worldâ€™s attention with her gutsy effort. Born and raised in Burnaby, Sinclair grew up playing with the Burnaby Girls Soccer Club helping them achieve six league titles, five provincial titles and two Top 5 national finishes. A member of the Burnaby Sports Hall of Fame, she helped her team at Burnaby South secondary win three league championships and a provincial title before a â€œremarkable soccer careerâ€? on collegiate, club and international soccer teams where sheâ€™s received numerous honours, said Mayor Derek Corrigan at last Mondayâ€™s council meeting.
Burnabyâ€™s Christine Sinclair celebrateâ€™s Canadaâ€™s 1-0 victory over France in the bronze medal-game at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London last month.
He noted his son was a year younger than Sinclair when both played for South Burnaby Metro Club. Occasionally, the boys gold team would challenge the girls gold team a year above them. â€œAnd Christine Sinclair was always the best player on the field, even then.â€? Referring to the Olympic bronze she brought home, he said, â€œWe
are all so proud of her for what she has achieved, and even more importantly, for how she has achieved it. Her determination and humility inspire us all.â€? Council approved a motion that it will work with citizen input to determine how the city might permanently recognize her achievements. â€œSince the Olympics, many of
us in Burnaby have been thinking of how best to honour Christine in our city,â€? he said. â€œCitizens have been contacting us with suggestions, which we would like to continue to receive.â€? Council will report back on its plans at a future meeting. Corrigan also congratulated Curtis Moss, a former city employee and alumnus of Chaffey-Burke elementary and Burnaby Central secondary, who competed in the javelin throw at the London Olympics. â€œCurtis didnâ€™t win an Olympic medal but he is an exceptional athlete as evidenced in his national titles and his qualification for the Olympic Games,â€? said Corrigan. â€œHere in Burnaby weâ€™re very proud of Curtisâ€™s achievements to date and we know his athletic future will be bright.â€? Corrigan noted homegrown athletes were helped along the way by many people. â€œIt does take a whole community to raise an athlete and these athletes show weâ€™re a very successful community.â€? twitter.com/WandaChow
Seniors Games legacies continue Wanda Chow
While it will be a couple months before BC Seniors Games organizers determine what sort of financial legacy it can share with Burnabyâ€™s seniors community, the city facilities are already benefiting from the event. Coun. Paul McDonell who, along with Coun. Sav Dhaliwal, represented the city on the organizing committee, told council last Monday the Games had a strong level of sponsorships, with cash donations ranging from $50 to $30,000.
A donation of about $13,000 allowed for a new bocce court to be built at Confederation Park, he said, and donations meant city hall only had to pay half the cost of new aluminum grandstands at Burnaby Lake, where the dragon boat races were held. McDonell said the city has also agreed to pay for a new harvester for the lake â€œto keep the weeds down,â€? among other legacies. He noted the Games organizersâ€™ policy was that if the rental cost of equipment was within 80 per cent of the cost to purchase it, they bought it. As a result, they bought

When complete, the track will be eight lanes instead of six as it was on the old one, and it will be oriented north-south, based on prevailing winds, to meet international track standards, said Errico. As for the gym, it will have new bleachers that fold into the wall. So while the overall floor area will be larger, the bleachers will take up some of that space now that the balcony-like bleachers are gone. “Now you’ll get closer to the action,” Errico said. As for the rest of the district, seismic upgrading at Gilmore elementary is nearing the home stretch. Sales said completion of that project, which first started with preliminary upgrades in 20012002, will be December at the earliest, noting that “because of the age of the building, we keep
finding anomalies” that require more work. After that, all the district’s remaining seismic upgrading priorities will be in the planning and study stages. Alpha secondary was announced earlier this year as a highpriority project approved by the education ministry. Before it reaches the funding stage, it must undergo detailed feasibility studies. Other Burnaby schools on the ministry’s priority list, which also must be studied to determine where they fit on that list, are Montecito and Stride elementaries and Burnaby North secondary, said Sales. “We’re hoping we’re going to be first out of the gate again to receive funding.” With summer the busiest time of year for the district’s facilities department, returning students will notice changes at some
schools. Enrolment increases have led to one additional portable being installed at each of Nelson and Cameron elementaries, said Sales. Edmonds elementary saw upgrades to its library space. Then there’s the projects most families don’t see. Numerous boilers have been replaced with more energy-efficient hybrid systems, with the work now complete at about half of the district’s schools. And after a couple years of installing lighting upgrades, about 95 per cent of schools now have sensor lights so lights only come on if someone is in a room, and older, less-efficient ballasts have been replaced. Facilities crews were hard at work in the last week leading up to the first day back at school. “There’s a very small window of opportunity to do the work,” said Sales.

‘Walking on eggshells’ to start school year Wanda Chow
This government has brought in something like 20-plus pieces of legislation just for teachers in a decade,” he said, noting that is more than any other group or teachers in any other province. “The unfortunate part of that is it’s hard for us to trust anything that they do” or even to trust the collective bargaining process, he said, “because we know they may be up to something.” Burnaby school board chair Larry Hayes said, “We’re anticipating a normal start to the school year with upwards of hayes 23,000 kids coming back.” Hayes, a supporter of the New Democrats as a member of the Burnaby Citizens Association, said everyone knows what happened last year. “It’s sort of the elephant in the room,” said Hayes. He believes the upcoming provincial election will temper the reactions to anything the government might do and a change in government could mean “the bargaining process is more respected, which would be a positive.” At the same time, Hayes stressed a new government is no magic solution for the teachers. “Let’s not kid ourselves. As far as I know, there’s not going to be a pot of gold at the end of that rainbow.”
Following almost a full year of teacher job action, people can expect the climate in schools at the start of this year to be “tentative,” said James Sanyshyn, the new president of the Burnaby Teachers Association (BTA). “I think that people will still be walking on eggshells for the first little bit.” Sanyshyn noted that for most of last year, there was very little interaction between teachers and principals as a result of the job action. “So that will be interesting to see the dynamic.” While there is no formal directive from the B.C. Teachers’ Federation preventing teachers from volunteering in extra-curricular activities, Sanyshyn predicted some will still decide not to participate. “I think a lot of teachers will be considering their work-life balance and, given the climate and the treatment from government, will choose to participate or not.” Similarly, some teachers may choose not to use their own money—more than $1,000 for the average elementary teacher—for their classrooms as they typically do, he said. The BTA will also continue its campaign to raise awareness of its concerns among Burnaby parents, such as its belief that this year, B.C. school district budgets are short a total of $100 million compared to last year, based on inflation twitter.com/WandaChow alone. Last school year was dominated by teachers’ work-to-rule job action, including a refusal to produce report cards, which culminated in a threeday strike in March, before the provincial government legislated TAKE NOTICE THAT the City Council proposes to adopt Bylaw No. 13131 them back to work.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: LAST WEEK:
Peace, please in public schools After a 2011/12 school year fraught with tension and concern, the coming one will be a blessing. Thousands of students (about 24,000 in Burnaby) headed back to school on Tuesday, some to new classrooms, some to new schools with new principals and new teachers. But with the current public school teachers’ collective agreement due to expire in less than a year, some old issues will continue to plague the education system. The BC Teachers’ Federation said it only signed the deal under the threat of legislation and there is a concern some teachers will be returning to the classroom bitter and demoralized. It’s possible some will even continue to refrain from doing volunteer duties while others may simply jump back into school activities with enthusiasm. Let’s hope a year of relative calm will provide new optimism and a sense of purpose as the school year begins — for teachers as well as students. – Black Press

Separating oil from manure
was as surprised as anyone to hear about the plan by this newspaper’s owner, David Black, to begin regulatory work on an oil refinery for Kitimat. I’ll leave it to others to comment on the practicality of that plan, and whether it would make the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline project more acceptable to B.C.’s government and population. Black Press news coverage, columns, letters to the editor and other reader comments are not affected by this project, and there has been a range of views expressed already. Whatever the merits of the refinery idea, it has advanced the debate over pipelines and the place of oil in our society. And that’s a good thing, because as someone with a basic knowledge of chemistry and some experience in oil refining, I have noticed a lot of ignorance about the subject. Today I’d like to address some of the main misconceptions, which have been exploited by some opponents. The first one is oil pollution in general and how it gets into the environment.
Tom Fletcher firstname.lastname@example.org
A global study by the Smithsonian Institution in 1995 calculated the amount of oil making its way into oceans this way: Big tanker spills accounted for 37 million gallons a year, about five per cent of the total marine oil pollution identified. By far the largest source was oil runoff from land into drains, from oil changes, municipal and industrial wastes and other sources: 363 million gallons. Bilge cleaning and other routine ship maintenance added 137 million gallons, four times the tanker spill average. Air pollution from vehicles and industry deposited hydrocarbon particles equal to another 97 million gallons; natural seeps added 62 million gallons; offshore drilling discharges accounted for 15 million gallons. So that’s the first thing to
7438 Fraser Park Dr., Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9 email@example.com burnabynewsleader.com | newwestnewsleader.com
understand. It’s not tankers and pipelines doing most of the polluting. It’s you and me. Then there is the propaganda about greenhouse gas emissions from the oil sands crude. Actor Robert Redford is one of the highest-profile pitchmen for the false notion that “tar sands” oil generates three times the greenhouse gases as conventional oil. The facts are clear. The most widely cited source is a graph prepared by Cambridge Energy Research Associates, which shows 75 per cent of greenhouse gases from all types of crude occur when the gasoline, jet fuel and diesel are burned by the end user. Yes, there are variations in emissions on the remaining quarter. Emissions from mined oil sands crude are slightly higher than steam extraction, which is slightly higher than conventionally drilled and pumped crude. The most greenhouse gas-intensive crude used in North America is California heavy crude, which is conventionally drilled. Burning coal produces far more greenhouse gases than oil,
as University of Victoria climate scientist Andrew Weaver has calculated. Two U.S. environmental groups, including the one fronted by Redford, have lately been promoting a study that suggests oil sands crude is more corrosive to pipelines. False, says the industry, showing analysis of pipes that have carried diluted bitumen for decades. The Trans-Mountain pipeline has been carrying crude from Alberta to Burnaby and Washington state for more than 60 years. It has periodically carried heavy crude for 40 years, and diluted bitumen for 25 years. Some of that crude is refined in Washington and the gasoline and diesel barged up to supply B.C. gas stations. And of course Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii and all other B.C. islands depend on marine fuel shipments. And let’s not forget the most common heavy oil used in B.C. It’s called asphalt.

Need politicans to stand up to their ideals It must be a record to have four sitting MLAs, three of them members of the provincial cabinet, resign within a 48 hour period of one another. That’s nearly 10 per cent of the BC Liberal caucus who have decided to not fight the next election in May. This is of course on top of the other six members of the party who have already declared their unwillingness to run again, and two who have already fled the government for the private sector. We aren’t even in the same calendar year as the election, and the BC Liberal caucus has already had more than 20 per cent of its members announce retirements. How many more can be expected to jump from the sinking ship and flee towards the relative safety of being a private citizen? It would seem to me these are Liberals who simply don’t have the courage to stand by their convictions, such that they are. I understand that there are many who are likely tired of politics after over a decade in office, and perhaps longer in opposition before that. To flee now though, as bad poll numbers indicate they won’t receive their accustomed victory, simply speaks to how these Liberals see their job and the electorate in relation. We’re expected to elect them, and now that it won’t happen they have no interest in the process and the exchange of ideas that accompanies each election. We need people to stand by their ideals when at their most vulnerable, not to retreat at the first sign of defeat. That’s not
good for democracy.

Call for Canada post to honour korean vets I have written to this newspaper along with a few others in order to make my plea public, and perhaps convince Canada Post to reconsider its decision to say no to our veterans and it may move our Prime Minister to help. I am unofficially writing on behalf of all Korean War veterans and for those 516 brave Canadian men that died during the war. Those buried on the Korean peninsula remain silent but they are not forgotten by me, their comrades, families and many others. Canada Post represents all of Canada and the stamps produced each year play an important part in portraying Canadian life and history. Since the end of the War in 1953, only a single Canadian Korean War themed postage stamp has been made and Canada Post refuses to make another. The war lasted three long years, and tragically saw the death of several million soldiers and civilians from both sides of the front line. This world historical event involved many allied countries who fought for the first time under the United Nations banner and with a just cause, to stop a war. I ask why will Canada Post not honour our veterans who succeeded in winning the greatest prize–peace?
pay attention to ICBC because they did not raise rates “all that much,” I shudder to think that he or the rest of our elected government could be that stupid, at their pay rate, to use that as an excuse. And all of a sudden (since ICBC was started in 1973) they noticed some financial abuse! Give me a break!

Burnaby RCMP has asked the West Vancouver Police Department to conduct an independent investigation after a female suffered an injury while she was being apprehended under the Mental Health Act. On Aug. 22 Burnaby RCMP were called to a home after receiving a 911 call. The officers’ investigation resulted in the female being apprehended. During the apprehension, the female suffered an injury to her arm. She was treated for that and then committed for psychiatric assessment. No RCMP officers were injured. “The WVPD has assigned a number of investigators who will deal with this investigation in a fair, transparent, and timely manner,” said West Vancouver Police in a press release.

Damage near Byrne Creek alarms streamkeepers, city Local streamkeepers are alarmed by recent repeated damage to sensitive areas near the banks of Byrne Creek in southeast Burnaby. “We`re seeing trails cut, branches torn off, trees cut down, salmonberry bushes and ferns torn out––it’s distressing,” said Paul Cipywnyk, president of the Byrne Creek Streamkeepers Society, in a press release. “Our members put in hundreds of volunteer hours every year and we’ve planted some of those trees with city permission. It’s so sad to see someone thoughtlessly cutting them down.”
Streamkeepers have been reporting the damage to staff at city hall and documenting it with photos, said Cipywnyk. “City staff are also appalled and are very supportive.” While the Burnaby parks department has seen similar damage, usually unintentional by shortcutting trail users or owners of off-leash dogs, this time the damage seems much more deliberate. Burnaby RCMP caution citizens to not personally intervene if they witness someone damaging the park, but to call police. Cipywnyk said members
of the public are reporting sightings, including a description of at least one person seen to be doing such damage. “We thank everyone who has contacted our group, and we encourage the public to pass any tips on to Burnaby RCMP. “We’re hoping this is not malicious and that perhaps someone simply doesn’t understand the negative impact of such actions,” Cipywnyk added. “We are very fortunate to have jewels like Byrne Creek Ravine Park in our midst, and we should treat such green havens with respect.”

Deep reforms are needed in B.C.’s congested court system to speed justice and prevent accused criminals from walking free due to unacceptable trial delays, according to the findings of a government-ordered probe. B.C. Justice Reform Initiative chair Geoffrey Cowper concludes a “culture of delay” remains in place in the justice system because no enforcement mechanism exists to break through persistent barriers to change. His 272-page report offers numerous recommendations and observations on the problems in the system. “There is a general sense of frustration and anxiety that there is not enough money,” the report said. Cowper found even simple criminal cases continue to take too long to get to trial despite a sharp drop in the criminal backlog over the last two years, largely due to the province’s shift to punishing impaired drivers with roadside penalties rather than prosecution in court. In B.C. Supreme Court, the time to reach trial and the length of trials is rising in part because of a struggle to manage highly complex, large cases. He proposes a Criminal Justice and Public Safety Council to transparently oversee the coordination of the legal system to try to make it more efficient. It would also track the court backlog and recommend to the justice minister how much money and staff the system needs.
Cowper recommended five new judges be immediately added to boost capacity, but said the Provincial Court’s call for 18 more judges to help reduce the case backlog is not justified. More than 100 cases were stayed last year because of excessive delays in getting to trial, violating the rights of the accused, and the number of cases older than 18 months in the provincial court system topped 2,500 before starting to decline. Several judges have criticized the lack of court resources in rulings throwing out long-delayed cases. Cowper declined to make a recommendation on whether overall funding for the criminal justice system is sufficient. Costs have climbed, Cowper found, but mainly to fund salary and benefit increases – not more court capacity. Much can be done through more efficient use of existing resources, he suggested. While longer delays have compounded the problems, speeding up the time to trial would help on multiple fronts. Defence would have to be ready to sooner respond to charges—perhaps opening up more plea bargains that avoid the need for trial. Accused criminals wouldn’t be held in custody as long, so the consequences of denying them bail wouldn’t be as severe. And the very high volume of charges being laid for breaching bail conditions would be sharply cut.

Parker scores TD in SFU debut Former St. Thomas More Collegiate star running back Keynan Parker scored a touchdown in his debut with the Simon Fraser University Clan football team Thursday. Parker got a TD on a four-yard run in the third quarter as SFU downed the Pacific University Boxers 51-14 in Forest Grove, Ore. Parker carried the ball nine times for 43 yards in the game. The son of former B.C. Lions sack specialist James (Quick) Parker had been with the Oregon State Beavers, but injuries reduced his playing time. He also played defensive back for the NCAA Div. I school. SFU has just been accepted as a full-fledged member of NCAA Div. II. Bo Palmer scored two touchdowns for the Clan in the victory with sophomore quarterback Trey Wheeler of Seattle completing 17 of 21 passes for 128 yards and two majors. SFU’s home opener will be against the Central Washington Wildcats at Terry Fox Field on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2 p.m.

Taking on a newspaper route has been our first job! Since starting the route earlier this summer we have both been learning the value of helping each other, being responsible and working efficiently. It is our Mom and Dad’s hope that earning a regular pay cheque will encourage responsible money management habits; spending our “fun money” wisely while also saving the remainder for a rainy day. So far these valuable life lessons are paying-off. Thanks NewsLeader for nominating us as “Carriers of the Week”!
If you are interested in becoming a carrier for the NewsLeader or would like to nominate a carrier please call 604.436.2472 Thank you to Panago (Kingsway & Arcola) for their kind sponsorship of the Carrier of the Week program.
