The two-ton truck is overflowing with bicycles of all shapes and sizes, some ready to ride, others in parts. They’ve all lived long lives, but they’re about to embark on their longest journey, someplace where they’ll have a much better fate than being banished to a landfill or buried in a backyard junk pile. For the past year Cap’s Bicycles in Sapperton has been gathering used

bikes. Last Friday, they packed up the last lot of them and took them to a warehouse in Port Coquitlam. There they will join others already collected to fill a container of more than 400 bikes to be shipped to South Africa thanks to a big helping hand from the New Westminster and Port Moody Rotary clubs. When the container gets there the Bicycle Empowerment Network will turn it into a bicycle shop. The top will be cut for ventilation, doors and windows put in, and a chain-link fence put up around it. The bikes will go on the roof and, poof, the

container is converted into a place to repair and distribute bicycles. A couple of the residents will be trained to become employees of the bike shop. The bicycles will be sold on a cost recovery basis and others are given to health workers in remote areas to make it easier for them to get around. The local initiative is the pet project of Cap’s employee Brek Boughton, who embarked on a winter bike ride to the Arctic Ocean last winter to raise money and awareness for the project. “It’s fantastic,” says Boughton.

“Cycling is important to me. It can solve a lot of our problems in the developed world and the undeveloped world.” Bicycles reduce greenhouse gases and help people improve their health, both here and in third world countries, he points out. “In that part of the world you get a lot more bang for your buck. You can do a lot more for cheaper than you can do here.” When Cap’s owner Gord Hobbis gazes over all the bikes stacked in the truck it surprises him a little. Please see ARCTIC, A3

After saying so long to the summer season the Royal City Farmers Market is moving ahead to beefing up its winter fare. The market recently completed its fifth year of selling celery, strawberries and squash—and much, much more—every Thursday afternoon for the last four months. The past two years, RCFM has also offered a winter market the first Saturday (11 a.m.) of every month. But this year, it will double that by holding markets on the first and third Saturday of every month starting Nov. 3. While the best thing about the summer market was it being outdoors in the sunshine, the best thing about the winter market is it will be inside, away from the rain, snow and cold at the River Market. RCFM operations manager Jodi Appleton said last year’s winter market, the first to be held at the Quay location, created a demand to increase the offerings. “It’s more of a regular shopping trip for those at the market rather than a special trip once a month,” said Appleton. see ‘WE JUST’, A5

Behind an unmarked black door on Clarkson Street, in a warren of rooms and coolers above Sherlock’s The British Store, Goodrick grinds out 700 pounds of sausage a week, dry cures 300 to 400 pounds of bacon, prepares meat pies and carves up sides of pork and quarters of beef for clients like independent meat shops, restaurants, pubs and private clubs.

“It’s been amazing how many bikes are out there in the system that people obviously don’t want,” says Hobbis. “It’s great bikes can be reused and recycled, but there’s part of me that says we sure create a lot here in North America that takes up space. It is good to see bikes not end up in the landfill.” Boughton is also preparing to resume his northern journey which he abandoned late last January. He left last November and made it all the way to Jakes Corner on the Alaska Highway, about 80 kilometres south of Whitehorse. However, having to propel 450 pounds, including his six-foot-four frame, through ice and snow took its toll on his knees, and his toes suffered some frostbite. “The last day I was in agony,” says Boughton. “My plan is to work it harder leading up to that point so the muscles are ready to go.” In early December, he’ll head over to Vancouver Island and ride up to Port Hardy to catch a ferry to Prince Rupert, and then another to Skagway, Alaska. From there he’ll ride 150 kilometres over the White Pass, the route Klondike Gold Rush miners took in 1897, into Jakes Corner to resume his trek to Tuktoyaktuk on the shores of the Arctic Ocean. Boughton has made some tweaks to his bike and his gear. He’s built a stronger rim for his back wheel which cracked from the cold weather and he’s taking a warmer sleeping bag. He intends to wear bigger boots because last winter his toes were numb from his heavily-insulated boots being too tight, which is why he didn’t realize frostbite had also set in.

City to sell Queensborough lots The City of New Westminster’s coffers should be getting a $600,000 boost in the near future with the sale of two vacant lots in Queensborough. City council will be asked on Monday to approve the sale of 635 and 641 Ewen Avenue for $315,000 each. In May, council approved putting out requests for offers on several properties it owns throughout the city that are considered surplus to the city’s needs. A report to Monday’s meeting said the Ewen Avenue lots were appraised in May for $320,000 each, but the $315,000 offers received by the city fell within the two per cent of appraised value considered acceptable. The report noted the New Westminster’s housing price index has been on a slight downward trend since April. The report estimated servicing and legal costs to the city for the sale to be $25,000, and

also concluded the sale would help facilitate development and contribute to the economic development and livability of the city.

Blockbuster site could rebuild It may not be a blockbuster of a development, but the former Blockbuster building could soon be going down. The city has received an application for a development permit to replace the current structure that formerly housed the Blockbuster video store, on Sixth Street at Seventh Avenue. City staff have advised council the property’s owner, Marco Investments of Vancouver, proposes to demolish the existing one-storey commercial building constructed in 1974. It would be replaced by a two-storey building with more than 10,000 square feet of floor space.

families and seniors to get fresh produce. “It was awesome. I loved it. It’s very community oriented, and very dedicated and loyal group of shoppers that come each week, so it was very friendly. And the vendors have their own community which is great to be part of,” said Appleton. “We just created a really good vibe. It was just a great place to work each week.” Space in Tipperary Park next to city hall is limited so

RCFM food vendors will be downstairs at the River Market while the upstairs will be more of an artisan market. The winter session will go until May 4 with the 2013 summer season starting on June 6. Appleton spent the summer learning the ropes from her predecessor Jen Arbo. She said the market had new vendors come on board and the coupon program in conjunction with the province allowed new mothers,

she doesn’t expect to be able to increase the amount of vendors beyond the 35 to 40 that show up each week. She is, however, looking to make some changes for next year including finding a way to incorporate food education with the kids activities and crafts. Appleton, who rode her bicycle from Kitsilano to the market, also wants to provide a place for cyclists to lock up their bikes instead of just leaving them at the information booth.

ADRIAN RAESIDE:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Beef recall worries Like a nasty computer virus, the XL Foods meat recall is casting a wider net and creating more problems as each day dawns. From the initial recall of beef processed by the Alberta plant between Aug. 24 and Sept. 5, the beef recall has now extended to thousands of stores. Hundreds of products from ground beef to prepared kebabs are on the do-not-eat (or cook-’til-charred) list, even though more than a month has passed since problems were first detected. As many as 10 E. coli cases in Alberta, Quebec and Newfoundland were linked to beef products from the XL Foods plant, where E. coli was initially detected on Sept. 4, and now a B.C. man has been identified as recovering from the illness caused by eating beef processed at XL Foods. This makes the XL Foods beef recall a national issue requiring a thorough investigation if confidence in the Canadian food system is to be restored. Many questions remain about who knew what and when — and what was done about it. The laxity of procedures at the plant and the length of time it took to identify the meat products affected could have put people’s lives in jeopardy. Initial stock-taking suggests some rigorous analysis of checks and re-checks of food processing systems at XL Foods is required. Other meat processing plants should be subject to review as well. This isn’t unnecessary redtape and regulation; rather, it’s important for the industry to be able to guarantee that beef processed at plants is safe to eat. But questions also remain about the three-day lag between the time that Canadian Food Inspection Agency knew of problems of meat imported to the U.S. and when it began alerting the Canadian public. Could more have been done sooner? Let’s hope we find out. – Black Press

Big storm made big impression British Columbia is known to have more than its share of windbags but the biggest wind to blow through these parts had nothing to do with politics. Her name was Freda, and it has been half a century since the nasty girl stormed through these parts leaving tons of debris in her wake. Typhoon Freda was a tropical storm that started in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean near the equator, eventually making a beeline for the Pacific Northwest. She hit our shores on the evening of Oct. 12, 1962, and boy did she make an entrance. Freda ripped through Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland taking down trees and much more in her wake. I was six years old when Freda came calling. My parents had chosen that weekend for a respite from raising four boys—which they fully deserved considering I was the oldest and the youngest was three. They had hired a babysitter so they could head south to see

the 1962 World’s Fair in Seattle before it wrapped up. According to reports, Freda came packing winds of 90 kilometres an hour gusting up to 145 km/h. She reduced tall trees to matchsticks all over the city. Our matronly babysitter huddled us in our modest South Burnaby home, but with the windows rattling and thunder rolling we wanted to watch the show. While we did, she scurried around the house looking for buckets to place around the house to gather the rain where the roof was leaking. The lightning provided the only light we had because Freda had knocked out the power all the way to Hope. An account on the BC Hydro website said some

were without electricity for up to a week, Newscaster John Ashbridge, a New Westminster resident, told me Freda helped put CKNW on the regional radio map because it had just purchased a power unit from the air force. That meant it could keep broadcasting when few stations up and down the coast could. I don’t recall being scared, although I should have been considering Freda took seven lives. She is considered the strongest storm to ever be recorded in the area. My most vivid memory is of the next day. Once the ill-natured Freda left town, the skies cleared and the morning after dawned a bright and sunny fall day. I woke up to look out our front window and see shingles strewn everywhere. Lawns up and down the street were littered with them. The roads and backyards were too. Burnaby had turned into Shingle City. Tree branches were all over the place. Of course, there were lots of trees for Freda to wreak

havoc on since most homeowners in that era didn’t make a habit of cutting down trees on their property. These days, that’s an activity that has as much remorse as slicing a banana into a cereal bowl. In a story about Freda on its website, Hydro said the damage in today’s dollars would be about $600 million. Roofing companies, naturally, profited the most. My parents beat a hasty retreat from Seattle, abandoning their Space Needle plans. It was the first time they had spent a night in the Emerald City. Bizarrely enough, the second was May 2, 1996. They had accompanied me to a Seattle Mariners game when a 5.6 magnitude earthquake shook the Kingdome during the sixth inning. Although we stayed the night, my mother and father vowed to never to book a motel room in Seattle again for fear of another natural disaster.

Social spaces bring streets to life Re: Bring on the crazy dreamers (Column, NewsLeader, Oct. 3) Are we done with the topic of retail on 12th Street? It was sounding to me like a chicken-and-egg situation: which comes first? If we get more residents living locally and walking on the street, 12th Street stores will thrive. Or maybe if we get stores that are more appealing, interesting or quirky, then shoppers will be attracted to the street and the stores will thrive. I don’t think many people walk on 12th Street more frequently than I do. I chat with the merchants and participate in 12th Street events, but I seldom shop on 12th Street. I’m drawn to Sixth and Sixth. What draws me there are 1) the library, and 2) Century House. While I’m in that vicinity, I shop. It’s primarily the appeal of the gathering place, the social space, that attracts me, and 12th Street lacks such places. There’s no pocket park, no plaza, no community space, no library, no neighbourhood hub or non-commercial gathering place where a person can just hang out, socialize, and (perhaps) experience a sense of local community. Check out a few of the “retail” streets that we envy and chances are you’ll find there’s at least one community space contributing to life on that street. Mary Wilson New Westminster

Chasing Ice hot at Doc Fest Grant Granger

ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

When the inaugural New West Doc Fest wrapped up last October organizers were excited about the audience response. They collected more than 35 surveys and nobody ranked the festival lower than four out of five, and most ticked the 5-box. This year they’ve raised the bar on the films, thanks to a connection

to the Toronto Film Festival, with the hopes of raising attendance. “There were lots of challenges,” said Andrew Murray, a festival organizer, of the 2011 edition. “There was a high degree of satisfaction with the quality of the event. Attendance for a first year event was OK, but we certainly need an uptick this year. We’re pretty confident we’re going

to get that.” New Westminster Environmental Partners, along with the Green Ideas Network and Douglas College got together to create the festival. This year’s New West Doc Fest will run Oct. 19-20 at the Laura Muir Theatre on the college’s New Westminster campus. “Documentaries for the last 20 years have been getting a lot

more attention, they’re running in first-run theatres, and people have been discovering documentaries are an entertaining way to spend an evening,” said Murray. This year, the Arts Council of New Westminster hooked up organizers with the Toronto Film Festival to acquire high-level films, and not just ones with an environmental bent. “If you want to grow your audience numbers we feel you need to offer a more diverse group of films, and we think we’ve accomplished that,” Murray said. This year’s marquee showing, however, is about the environment. Chasing Ice has recently been screened at the Hot Docs festival in Toronto as well as Tribeca in New York and Sundance in Utah. It has yet to be released for major distribution, said Murray. It’s about a National Geographic photographer who journeys to a remote part of Greenland to set up time-lapse cameras for the winter to demonstrate the rapid melting of the ice cap. When he returns the next year he finds the computer systems in the cameras have failed. So the next winter he makes the difficult trip all over again, even though he’s suffering from a knee injury.

City council will decide on Monday whether to approve a bylaw banning the sale of dogs and cats in retail stores. Representatives of two animal rights organizations have appeared before council asking for a ban citing the growing number of unwanted dogs and cats in shelters and animals being raised by unqualified breeders. At council’s request, staff have prepared a bylaw and recommended it be given three readings on Monday. If that happens public comment will be solicited over the next two weeks before it goes to a vote for final approval.

NWPD launch blog New Westminster police have launched a blog to provide insight into the frontline work of the department. View from the Street will be mainly written by Const. Jeff Scott of the traffic unit, but the department is also planning to use guest writers from other units.

“Our goal with View from the Street is to give the public inside access to the day-to-day experiences of our members straight from their own mouths,” said Chief Const. Dave Jones in a press release. “We’re excited to see how the blog evolves over time as we take public engagement to a new level.” The blog can be found at www.viewfromthestreet.ca. New posts will be announced through the department’s Twitter (@newwestpd) and Facebook (newwestpolice) accounts.

Platinum deadline The deadline for nominations for the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce’s Platinum Awards, which includes citizen of the year and the Bernie Legge cultural award, is Oct 15.

Poetry crawl New Westminster has had many pub crawls in its time, but a poetry crawl this Sunday (Oct. 14) may be a first. The free crawl will get underway with an open mic at Renaissance Books, 43 Sixth St. starting at 1 p.m. It will feature authors Kevin Spenst and Kim Clark doing readings and books signings. Then just down the street at the Heritage Grill, beginning at 3 p.m., there will be a Poetic Justice event that will feature poets Fran Bourassa, Pamela Bentley and New Westminster resident Mickey Bickerstaff with Deborah Kelly being the host.

An exciting day as a river watcher

I

confess! I’m a river watcher.

I love watching as the autumn full moon casts her bright spotlight across the river’s smooth black waters, the bobbing head of a seal as it breaks the water’s surface, or the fog that rolls across in the morning. But then again, who doesn’t? With this extension of summer, people are flocking to the boardwalk to enjoy the sights and last rays of Cindy warmth before the coolness of winter begins to settle in. From racing kids to strolling seniors there is one thing that makes them all stop—a working marine vessel on the Fraser. A few weeks back, due to a malfunction with the New Westminster Rail Bridge, the Seaspan King towing the selfloading, self-dumping log barge Seaspan Phoenix patiently waited on the south shoreline of the Fraser to continue her journey upriver. Passersby stopped, pointed and photographed this massive barge loaded with 15,000 cubic metres of Hemlock from Quatsino Sound. The staff at the Fraser River Discovery Centre got a surprising

invitation to go out and watch this log barge unload at a log sorting facility on the Coquitlam waterfront. Hanging out the “gone fishing” sign, grabbing the jackets and deckworthy shoes we headed down to Sapperton Landing to catch our ride. A short ride upriver, with the aid of two other tugs, the Phoenix was getting into Sale position with a small army of boom boats and tugboats waiting for her hull to slowly take on water to make her unbalanced to create the necessary tilt to dump her precious cargo. Before we knew it logs were sliding off the deck into the depths of the Fraser, causing the barge to lunge away. The tugboats quickly flew into action corralling the logs as the buoyant boom boats pushed them further into the corral or chased the escaped logs as they floated down river with the current. What a fabulous field trip. Not only did we get to enjoy an afternoon out on the river, we witnessed firsthand why the Fraser is a valuable economic resource for

Tugs and boom boats in action as the Seaspan Phoenix tips its load.

this province and the thousands of people whose lives depend on the river. We were smack in the middle of Mother Nature’s natural highway and although large, with the Phoenix sitting in the middle it created a marine traffic jam like morning rush

hour on the Port Mann. So the next time you are by the river take a moment to watch the working river “work.” Until then, if you want to see a self-loading, selfdumping log barge unload her previous cargo, check out the video and many more

photos on our Facebook page at Facebook.com/ FraserRiverDiscoveryCentre.

Transportation expert Todd Litman has a radical proposal to quickly solve congestion at the Massey Tunnel – one that doesn’t involve waiting a decade for a new bridge or borrowing billions of dollars. He would slap tolls on the Highway 99 crossing immediately. Litman argues small tolls charged now and only during peak periods would decongest the corridor and allow a free flow of traffic through the tube. The money collected could fund better bus service on the corridor and connecting routes, he said, providing a more viable transit alternative for drivers who don’t need to use their own vehicles. “You prevent the congestion from getting severe,” Litman said. “It’s the efficient, rational solution that could actually start providing benefits in a year.” Premier Christy Clark last

Map mystery piques curiosity photo@newwestnewsleader.com

Craig Bowlsby thought he was spending $20 on an antique map. He bought a bit of a mystery instead. The Vancouver historian, who has authored two books about the early days of ice hockey in British Columbia, was mining eBay for interesting artifacts when an old yellowing map from 1858 caught his eye. The map, which accompanied an article from a newspaper back east, depicts “Vancouver Island and Washington Territory, showing San Juan Island the disputed territory.” But along the Fraser River, where New Westminster should be, is the name Albert. The anomaly was hard to miss; other than Fort Langley, there were hardly any named settlements in B.C. at the time. Even Vancouver hadn’t yet been named. “When I saw this, I figured someone must know why this was the case,” said Bowlsby. He called the archives but staff there could find no references to Albert prior to the city being granted its New Westminster moniker by Queen Victoria in 1859, after her favorite part of London. Albert was, of course, the Queen’s husband whom she’d married in 1840 and his name was eventually attached to an elite residential district in the city and a park on

the bluff above the Fraser, where residents gathered for Victoria Day celebrations beginning in 1868. Bowlsby was mystified. “The cartography isn’t exact,” said Bowlsby. “A lot of territory had names given to it by various different factions.” It turns out, though, the Albert name isn’t so mysterious after all, said Dale Miller, of A Sense of History Research Services. “People get very excited when they see something old about something familiar.” According to a book by Derek Hayes called Historical Atlas of Vancouver and the Lower Fraser Valley, the site that would become New Westminster had been proposed for a town even before the arrival of the Royal Engineers. That site appeared as Albert Town on a goldfields map by Victoria merchant Alfred Waddington and dated May 1858. Another, slightly newer, map showed the site as Prince Albert. As late as 1868, maps were being created that showed New Westminster as Albert City. It’s likely the newspaper’s artist was referencing one of those maps, said Miller. A mystery no longer, New Westminster’s previous identity is still interesting. And Bowlsby isn’t discouraged by his modest investment in a curious artifact. “To me, it’s worth a lot,” he said.

Crime rate drops on transit system Chief says force will still be relevant after fare gates Jeff Nagel Black Press

Crime against passengers and staff on TransLink’s transit system fell 17 per cent in the first half of the year, according to Transit Police. The change reflects a drop in reports of theft, assaults and sexual assaults. Property crime on the system, including vandalism, dropped four per cent from 2011. Chief Neil Dubord acknowledged crime rates are generally falling in North America, but called the drop in reported crime significant and noted it was accompanied by a 10 per cent improvement in surveyed passengers’ perception of safety on the system. Transit Police investigations led to more than 500 charge recommendations to Crown counsel in the first six months of 2012. Officers also arrested 530 fugitives wanted in other jurisdictions on outstanding

The drop in crime during the first half of the year also coincided with a 10 per cent improvement in passengers’ perception of safety, says Transit Police Chief Neil Dubord.

warrants. The force conducted 1.4 million fare checks in the first nine months of 2012 as TransLink stepped up efforts to reduce fare evasion. Dubord rejected suggestions that the 167-officer force – whose budget is about $29 million – will have much less to do once fare gates now being installed at SkyTrain stations are activated next year.

“Once fare gates go in our goal is to continue to protect our passengers,” he said, adding that will likely mean more time patrolling buses. Officers will still need to conduct fare checks on SkyTrain inside the gated areas, he added, because some some fare evaders will come through the gates two or three at a time or crawl under or over the paddle turnstiles. He rejected suggestions from critics that the force could be dismantled and its duties handled jointly by existing RCMP and municipal police forces. He said the original case for a standalone force remains valid – that shared coverage by other forces would end up being spotty and public safety would suffer. Dubord said the force has redoubled its efforts to control costs. Improved scheduling has halved overtime costs, he said, adding that’s expected to save $300,000 to $400,000 this year.

B.C. yet to join Kinder Morgan pipeline hearings Jeff Nagel Black Press

The provincial government must decide soon if it wants to have a say at an initial pair of hearings into Kinder Morgan’s plan to twin its Trans Mountain crude oil pipeline through the Lower Mainland. The province has already missed an August deadline to apply for intervenor status in one National Energy Board (NEB) hearing starting Jan. 15 in Calgary, where Chevron Canada will argue its Burnaby refinery should get priority access to oil flowing through the pipeline in order to keep operating. And another deadline is looming Oct. 15 for potential intervenors in a separate NEB hearing starting Feb. 13 into the rates Kinder

oil sands. Even if B.C. keeps quiet for now, others intend to pipe up at the first two hearings. NDP MP Kennedy Stewart (BurnabyDouglas) and Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan have been named intervenors at the Chevron hearing. Stewart said he’s backing Chevron’s application, adding the loss of B.C.’s only major refinery could drive up local gas prices. “It does supply a third of the

TOYOTA

gasoline for the Lower Mainland and about 400 jobs,” he said. He added he also wants to press Chevron on whether the firm will improve environmental standards at the Burnaby refinery. Chevron has resorted to shipping some oil from Alberta by rail to Langley and then by truck to Burnaby because of its inability to get enough crude via the oversubscribed pipeline. Kinder Morgan has indicated

it will not oppose Chevron, but at least one U.S. oil firm with a refinery in Washington State is expected to argue against priority for the B.C. refinery, on grounds that would violate free trade. Stewart is also seeking standing at the rates hearing and argues the province should be there too. “Because they’re talking about the prices they would charge per barrel of oil coming down the pipeline this is a perfect opportunity

to discuss what other moneys might be charged,” Stewart said. The provincial government has been criticized for not seeking a formal role much earlier at the NEB hearings into Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline to Kitimat. A government spokesperson said the province has notified Kinder Morgan it is subject to the same requirements B.C. has laid down in response to Enbridge’s plans.

Kyle Turris has decided to occupy his time during the NHL lockout by playing in Finland for Oulun Karpat. The 23-year-old New Westminster native was expected to suit up for the Finnish Elite League squad this week. “I’m excited to play,” said Turris in a press release put out on Oulun Karpat’s website. “We’re glad that things (worked out) quickly.” MARIO BARTEL/NEWSLEADER FILE According New Westminster’s Kyle Turris will play in Finland during NHL lockout. to reports, Turris was signed because Carolina Hurricane’s centre Jussi Jokinen, who had been under contract to Oulun, returned to North America. Turris does have an out-clause that allows him to return to the Ottawa Senators if the NHL lifts its lockout. Oulun Karpat’s roster also includes San Jose Sharks defenceman Jason Demers. In 2011-12, Turris scored 12 goals and 29 points in 49 games after being traded to the Senators by the Phoenix Coyotes. Last offseason he was an unrestricted free agent and asked to be dealt, but the Coyotes wouldn’t oblige until he signed a two-year, $2.8 million deal with the Coyotes on Nov. 22, 2011. He did not score a point in six games with Phoenix before he was sent to the Senators on Dec. 17 for defenceman David Rundblad and a secondround pick. In late August, he signed a five-year $17.5 million contract extension with Ottawa.

Before his New Westminster Hyacks took on the Centennial Centaurs at Mercer Stadium last Friday, head coach Farhan Lalji was fearful of Centennial running back Nathan Lund. His fears were well founded. Lund scored six touchdowns reaching the end zone on runs of 13, 68, 63 and 43 yards, and catch and runs of 27 and 72 yards. The performance overshadowed a spectacular game by New West running back Aldrin Asuncion who racked up 309 yards and scored on touchdown runs of 36, 39, five and 35 yards. Centennial had a 35-20 halftime lead, but the Hyacks actually managed to rebound to go ahead 40-35 late in the third quarter. “Normally I have no use for moral victories, but I’m very proud of the resilience we showed to ALAN WARDLE/HYACKS continuously come back,” said Lalji New Westminster Hyacks quarterback Tommy Robertson straight-arms a in an email. “Last week (a 48-7 loss Centennial Centaurs defender during the Coquitlam school’s 54-40 win at Mercer Stadium last Friday. to Surrey’s Lord Tweedsmuir) we threw in the towel early, this time our kids showed a lot of character and that’s offence of 485 yards, including 428 along the something we can build on.” ground, and ran 74 offensive plays to Centennial’s Asuncion’s 309 yards on 35 carries beat the 45. previous school record of 301 yards by Vivie “It was a very helpless feeling watching Lund Bojilov set in 2009. The Hyacks racked up a total run around like that,” said Lalji. “He is an exceptional player, but one player should never beat you like that. “We still wore them down and had a great chance to win, but two holding penalties and two fumbles really hurt us in the fourth quarter.” Other New West touchdowns came on a 23-yard run by Julian Ramirez and a 26-yard toss from quarterback Tommy Robertson to Tristan Sands. Eric Teng picked off two Centennial passes, and Jordan Chin was the top tackler with eight. While the Hyacks are 3-3 overall, they are 0-2 in the B.C. AAA Western Conference standings. The Hyacks will face the Notre Dame Jugglers, who are also 0-2 at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex West on Friday (Oct. 12) at 7:30 p.m. • The Hyacks junior varsity squad took a 45-13 lead in the fourth quarter before cruising to a 45-35 victory over Centennial last Thursday to improve to 5-1.

Pendulum shifts to a buyer’s market The summer of 2012 drew to a close in September with home sale activity well below historical averages in the Greater Vancouver housing market. Residential property sales of detached, attached and apartment properties reached 1,516 in September, a 32.5 per cent decline compared to the 2,246 sales in September 2011 and an 8.1 per cent decline compared to the 1,649 sales

in August 2012, according to the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. September sales were 41.6 per cent below the 10-year September sales average of 2,597. “There’s been a clear reduction in buyer demand in the three months since the federal government eliminated the availability of a 30-year amortization on government-insured mortgages,” Eugen Klein, REBGV president said.

“This makes homes less affordable for the people of the region.” New listings for detached, attached and apartment properties in Greater Vancouver totalled 5,321 in September. This represents a 6.3 per cent decline compared to September 2011 when 5,680 properties were listed for sale on the MLS and a 31.6 per cent increase compared to the 4,044 new listings in August 2012.

Sales of detached properties on the MLS in September 2012 reached 594, a decrease of 37.9 per cent from the 957 detached sales recorded in September 2011, and a 31.4 per cent decrease from the 866 units sold in September 2010. The benchmark price for detached properties decreased 0.5 per cent from September 2011 to $935,600. Sales of apartment properties reached 676 in September 2012, a 26.7 per cent decrease compared to the 922 sales in September 2011, and a decrease of

30.4 per cent compared to the 971 sales in September 2010. The benchmark price of an apartment property decreased 0.7 per cent from September 2011 to $368,600. Attached property sales in September 2012 totalled 246, a 33 per cent decrease compared to the 367 sales in September 2011, and a 35.8 per cent decrease from the 383 attached properties sold in September 2010. The benchmark price of an attached unit decreased 2.7 per cent between September 2011 and 2012 to $458,600.

At 18,350, the total number of residential property listings on the MLS increased 14.1 per cent from this time last year and increased 4.5 per cent compared to August 2012. “Today, our sales-toactive-listings ratio sits at 8 per cent, which puts us in a buyer’s market. This ratio has been declining in our market since March when it was 19 per cent,” Klein said. The MLS HPI composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Greater Vancouver is $606,100.
