robyn murrell has turned her passion for antiques into a home-based business restoring vintage furniture and repurposing old industrial lighting.

Building a Nest takes support Dentistry had provided Robyn Murrell with a good career and life for 28 years, even afforded her the opportunity to live in Ireland for four of them. Away from the lab where she created moulds and prosthetics like bridges, she had the time and money to pursue her passions for fitness and antiques. But when the practice where Murrell worked in Vancouver was sold and her services were no longer required, she was at a crossroads; she could invest in more

education to upgrade her dental technician skills or she could invest in herself to transform her passions into her livelihood. She became certified as a personal trainer and, with her sister Heidi Clarkson on board as a silent partner, she also started Robyn’s Vintage Nest, a home-based business restoring antique furniture and vintage industrial lighting. “I’ve always loved working with my hands,” says Murrell. “This was my perfect opportunity.” But striking out on her own was daunting. She didn’t have enough

A public consultation meeting on the New Westminster school district’s $2.8 million deficit did little to answer questions about what went wrong or come up with solutions to fix the problem. Many parents who came to the meeting at New Westminster secondary on Tuesday weren’t satisfied with the answers. However, district parent advisory council president Rob Peregoodoff wasn’t as unhappy as some. He said the presentation by district secretary-treasurer Brian Sommerfeldt wasn’t supposed to reveal why it happened. He did, however, say on Wednesday the presentation told a “compelling story” about how the district’s spending compared to similar-sized school districts, as well as neighbouring ones, and how New Westminster had given priority on spending in the classroom over the years. Peregoodoff did, however, take exception to the district having the gathering break out into groups to discuss how to eliminate the deficit, saying it’s not the parents’ responsibility to solve the district’s problems. see ANOther, A3

Shaking and shimmying for a good cause Mario Bartel

Lana Lemure’s knee-high shiny leather boots with hot pink laces are anything but demure. Then again, there’s nothing subtle about burlesque. On Oct. 28, Lemure’s alter-ego Lana Friesen will be presenting Vamp It Up!, an evening of burlesque and other forms of dancing and ribaldry at the Columbia Theatre. Part of the proceeds will benefit the Royal City Alternate Program (RCAP). Friesen is a dance instructor and choreographer with her own company, Joy of Dance Productions, that creates opportunities for adults to explore their inner dancer. Lemure is the saucy, intense lead of Glamourati, a Broadway

burlesque troupe of about 15 dancers of all shapes and ages— from 18 to their 50s—who’d rather shake it up than take it off. “We have such a variety of people,” says Friesen, who started dancing when she was four years old and discovered burlesque in her 20s. “The dancers can show as much or as little as they want.” Burlesque isn’t stripping, explains Friesen. It’s rooted in satire and some of the choreography is exaggerated for comedic effect. Parts of the saucy sequined costumes of corsets, ruffled shorts, boas and bustles may end up on the stage floor, but it’s more about the performance. “It becomes addictive,” says Lily Rodina, whose Glamourati character is Cora Purrl, a Parisian courtesan. “It’s very frightening

rehearse for a few hours in the afternoon. Showtime is often preceded by a communal dinner. “In burlesque people are a lot more supportive of each other,” says Rodina. “We help each other rather than run each other over.” “There’s no feeling of trying to steal the spotlight,” adds Friesen.

Royal collections from Royal City residents are part of an exhibit honouring Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee at the New Westminster Museum and Archives. From Paper to Diamond: The 60-Year Reign of Queen Elizabeth II will open on Oct. 24 and run until Nov. 25. It will show off some of the museum’s rarely seen British Royals memorabilia as well as local collectors, including Linda Cooper who remembers seeing the Queen during her visit to New Westminster in 1971. “My mother and I were waiting on the parkade watching the Queen step off the Royal Britannia—my mom was jumping with excitement,” said Cooper in a museum press release. Museum curator Oana Capota will also put on a guided tour of the exhibit on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 3 p.m., where she’ll tell the stories behind the artifacts and also show some additional treasures from the museum’s vault. Fashion historian Ivan Sayers will give a presentation on royalty and its influence on fashion showcasing influential royal women from 1840 to 2000 on Saturday, Nov. 3, 11 a.m. To register for the programs call the museum at 604-527-4640. Admission is by donation. For more information call the museum or visit its website, www. newwestpcr.ca/culture/museum_and_archives.php.

Dog, cat sales ban no solution: councillors Grant Granger

isn’t right. We need to identify the bad apples,” said Puchmayr on Tuesday. “It is a problem, it polarizes some people in the community, nevertheless it needs to be tackled, but I’d like to see it tackled differently.” McEvoy said he’s reluctant to ban anything, and would prefer to see solid evidence before doing so. He said the big issue is puppy mills and the improper handling of animals, not selling them in stores. “We don’t fix it by banning that, by making it a mail-order business,” said McEvoy, who suggested the city could help deal with the issue by instituting conditions in the business licences of pet store. “That would be a more effective, and more involved approach. I don’t think there’s a rush, and that was part of that feeling in [voting to oppose the ban].” At the same meeting, council also discussed a report proposing to amend the animal control bylaw to eliminate specific breeds from its definition of “vicious” dogs, and finding a way to make

ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

New Westminster council has banned the sale of cats and dogs in pet stores but not without some dissent. Couns. Chuck Puchmayr, who along with Coun. Jaimie McEvoy voted against the ban at Monday’s council meeting, believes there is a better way to deal with selling animals bred in puppy mills and raised in deplorable conditions. Animal rights groups had approached council about implementing the ban, although a report to council Monday noted of the three pet supply stores in New Westminster, two do not sell pets while the other acts as an agent for the BCSPCA, a practice that will still be allowed under the bylaw. Puchmayr said one of the things that distresses him about the ban is it dismisses the possibility of reputable breeders being able to sell cats and dogs through stores. “It’s been identified there are some bad apples, but to make blanket bylaws because we think there are bad apples

owners more responsible. The current bylaw does not allow vicious dogs to be outside of private property, including off-leash parks, without a muzzle. It also says they must be kept confined securely either indoors or in an enclosed pen. The bylaw’s definition of vicious dogs was changed in 2008 to include 10 breeds—pit bull, pit bull terrier, American pit bull terrier, Staffordshire bull terrier, Cane Corso, Italian mastiff, Presa Canarios, Fila Brasileiro and Argentinian Dogo. Puchmayr has mixed feelings on the issue. He has a friend with six pit bull cross dogs “that if you were alone with them they’d lick you to death.” Conversely, many New Westminster residents have told him about their encounters with aggressive owners and dogs. “That’s where I’m torn. Any dog can be vicious no matter how large or how small,” said Puchmayr. “How do you regulate the owner? … It’s hard to regulate what’s in someone’s mind about their dog.”

ADRIAN RAESIDE:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Amanda’s tale The tragic tale of Amanda Todd is evolving by the minute. Sadly, it was several years of torment and abuse, as described on cue cards in her nine-minute YouTube video, that led her to take her own life last week, a month shy of her 16th birthday. It was not a sweet life, but one that has resonated around the world, as evidenced by the 14.5 million views of her trending video. It took a wrong turn when Amanda was coaxed into flashing her breasts while participating in an online chat several years ago. That photo was then repeatedly shared with her family and friends, teachers and strangers, after she refused to perform more. Every time she changed schools, it followed her. It’s difficult enough for teenagers to keep their heads up in the hallways if they have even a pimple on their face. Amanda must have felt like she was naked all the time. She struggled with anxiety and panic disorder, depression, abused drugs and alcohol. She admittedly made poor decisions, which led to more abuse, bullying. She was physically assaulted, then tried to kill herself. Watch her video. Read her words. She felt alone. She needed someone. That is what bullying is, not just the harmful words, but the isolation. It can be devastating, especially to a young person. Amanda didn’t want others to feel the way she did, for people to be quick to judge, to pile on, rather to speak up if someone is being mistreated. There will always be bullies as long as there are vulnerable people. And, unfortunately, as seen with the memorial Facebook page for Amanda, some people are ill. We can teach our younger ones to watch out for them, to be careful, how to avoid pitfalls, help pick them up and brush off when they do stumble. Teach them many things. But don’t forget compassion. —Black Press

Charting a new path for SD40 Another week of bad news at the school district. This time, we’re tackling the $2.8M deficit that apparently appeared out of nowhere, after the fiscal year was done. Bad news like this is sucking the life out of SD40, and it’s time to change course. If you Google search New Westminster School District you’ll find SD40’s home page, some innocuous pages, then some great headlines about the deficit and this great one: “New Westminster: A school district in turmoil.” To find any “good news” you’ll have to scroll through for quite some time. Do the same with Surrey, Burnaby, Coquitlam school districts and it’s all either good or neutral. To those who have watched school district affairs a while, this comes as no surprise. But it’s not acceptable. Not for the school district, and especially not for the kids. Why? Because it means all we’re doing is fighting, figuring out how to pay the bills

SD40 that, if addressed, will put the school district on the right track: THE SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS NO SENSE OF DIRECTION

and put a roof over students’ heads, rather than striving for excellence and creating happy kids. We all lose. First thing’s first. The deficit will be conquered—with a fair bit of pain involved—but the more important question is what the hell happened? No explanation can mar the fact someone screwed up big time. Either that person should be out of a job, or disciplined, and if there are systems that need to be fixed, fix them. It’s really that simple. If our financial officer has too much on his plate, what with a business company and education foundation to oversee, then hire some support. Once we get that sorted, there are two fundamental problems at

There’s no strategic plan for SD40. Buried under “policies” on the website are a few vague ramblings, but that’s it. Back in 2001, a consultant recommended the school district draft one, but it’s still missing. A strategic plan is where we should start. If you don’t spell out where you want to go, chances are someone else—or random chance—will decide. THE SCHOOL DISTRICT ISN’T TELLINg ITS STORy

School trustees and school district administration are constantly in reaction mode. Frustrated parents often set the agenda and establish the issue of the day and how it is interpreted in the media. Why is this happening? Because the school district does a piss-poor job of communicating

effectively, and communicating consistently. Too often, parents feel they’re kept in the dark and that leads to speculation and rumour. Assumptions of scheming, incompetence—in other words, bad news. In the absence of other information, or even context, this can be accepted as truth. To remedy this, SD40 needs to hire a full-time communications person. Today. Yes, it’s probably $100,000 or so, but it will be the best money they’ve ever spent. An effective communications person would establish a consistent communications strategy for our schools, so all schools share information equally well. They would ensure everyone, school district employees included, know the district’s goals and the progress to that end. And yes, this person would proactively address controversial issues, and provide regular updates on issues of importance. see A gOLDEN OPPORTuNITy, A7

COMMENT amendment processes it is up to the developer to organize and hold the open house. So why did the city take on this job for the May 2 open house? This implies the city is fully integrated into the proposal. 5) With the start of current rezoning process it was revealed that the daycare was dropped (they claim temporarily). Residents have continually pointed out to council that, as then structured, the daycare would never fly. We did the due diligence the city should have done by contacting the licensing authority. They would have learned the licensing authority would never allow Sapperton Park to be used as a daycare play area due to the busy streets that would need to be crossed. Even after informing the city of this, the city’s support of the project never wavered. 6) Even though the daycare was dropped, not only did the city not have a re-examination about the worth of this project to the city and the neighbourhood, it approved an expedited rezoning process with a shortened timeline. So, Mr. Harper and council, yes the residents do feel city council and staff have stacked the cards against us. This should be a cautionary tale to any other area of the city. This council, with the exception of Betty McIntosh, does not care about local neighbourhoods. We will remember this two years from now at election time. Gerald Sommers New Westminster

EFry issue a cautionary tale At the New Westminster City Council regular meeting on Oct. 15 I watched with bemusement Bill Harper and most of fellow councillors chastising Catherine Cartwright for saying “the fix is in” in regards to Elizabeth Fry development. She pointed out her statements are reflecting what the community of lower Sapperton is feeling in regards to this council and city staff’s comments and actions surrounding this proposal. Why does the community feel this way? 1) On May 2 the McBrideSapperton Residents’ Association voted 36-0 against the Elizabeth Fry development last spring. I wonder if Coun. Jaimie McEvoy, who is a past president of the Brow of the Hill Residents’ Association, can remember council going against such a one-sided RA decision? 2) 94 per cent of residents in the closest three streets signed a petition against the development. 3) At the OCP amendment public hearing Coun. Jonathan Cote read from a fairly detailed statement supporting EFry immediately at the end of the presentations. If his mind is supposed to remain open until the end of presentations how could he find the time to write such a detailed response between the end of presentations and his turn to speak? Either his mind was made up earlier or he has amazing speed speech writing capabilities. 4) In normal OCP

Bluff and Bluster rings hollow When it comes to generating revenue for government coffers, the Northern Gateway oil pipeline is “chump change” compared to the LNG plants slated to be built in B.C. So boasted our premier during her recent visit to Calgary. But it may well be an empty boast. Before committing to such an expensive undertaking the natural gas companies must first secure firm commitments from large gas consumers (e.g. China) to buy LNG at a price that will make the investment in liquefying plants profitable. In point of fact the price of natural gas has been in the doldrums for three years. One significant impact of this has been the undermining of the revenue estimates of the BC Liberal government through the collection of gas sale royalties. Just when you think things are bad, they get worse. Almost simultaneous with Clark’s “chump change” remark was the breaking news that a U.S.based natural gas company concluded an agreement to deliver LNG to China at a deeply discounted price. Energy Minister Rich Coleman tried to dismiss the deal as having no significant impact on the development of LNG exportation in B.C. Bluff and bluster doesn’t change the fact the LNG train seems to have left the station without B.C. aboard. Bill Brassington

And they would also help spread the good news. Surprising as it might seem, there is a lot of it in New Westminster. Problem is, everyone’s too busy reacting to the fires breaking out in the information void to get around to telling those good news stories. A few years ago, I wrote about the difference between our coverage of the Burnaby and New West school districts (we publish a Burnaby paper too). In Burnaby, stories skewed heavily towards good news, or purely informational, which I think accurately reflects reality.

In New West, stories were virtually all “bad” news. On the bright side, this is a time of great opportunity for SD40. When a reputation gets this low, the only way to go is up. The school district only needs to look to New West City Hall to see a successful example of an image makeover. After years of being dogged by a bad reputation in the lower mainland, the Royal City is creating a new brand as it revitalizes and does a better job sharing its story of what it is and where it’s going. Opportunity knocks. With the pending construction of an elementary,

middle and high school on the horizon, this is the time to create and cement a new reputation. When all the schools are built, New Westminster School District will have a chance of a lifetime. Three state-of-the-art schools, in a city this small. It should put us at the cutting edge. Make us the place where parents want their kids enrolled. Where teachers want to work. Let’s not fumble the ball. School trustees, I hope you’re listening. Chris Bryan is editor of the NewsLeader.

New West wants SFPR-Port Mann connection re-examined Grant Granger

ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

TransLink’s proposal to connect the future Pattullo Bridge replacement with South Fraser Perimeter Road (SFPR) should be re-examined because a SFPR design study in 2001 determined there was no need to connect it to either the Pattullo or Port Mann bridges says a New Westminster city report. It also concludes the merits of a direct connection between SFPR and Highway 1 should also be examined. The 2001 study determined the SFPR should terminate at the 176 Street entrance to Highway 1 in Surrey because it would achieve more objectives for that city and the province to have it there than at the 152 Street entrance near the south end of the Port Mann. New Westminster council has maintained having no connection between the SFPR at 152 will mean trucks headed from Delta to the region’s northeast sector will opt to use a toll-free, six-lane Pattullo instead of a long detour via the

The audit’s proposed savings are in addition to $98 million a year TransLink has already carved out of its new base plan. Transportation Minister Mary Polak said the new options help but don’t solve the need for sustainable funding, especially with Metro Vancouver’s population rising by one million in the next two decades. “We look for a silver bullet in these reports, but it isn’t there,” she said. “While there are areas where TransLink can find efficiencies, areas where they can perform better, nevertheless it is, overall, a well-run organization. “There is a need for more funding if we are to meet the needs of the region going forward.” Polak said she will

‘Not a lot of low-hanging fruit’ ⫸

continued from pagE a11

Mayors are expected to debate Thursday whether they want TransLink to prepare a new negative supplement to rescind the previously approved time-limited property tax increase of $30 million for 2013 and 2014. Such a move could trigger more transit service reductions and a formal vote early in the new year after extensive public consultations. TransLink’s current plan calls for the launch of the new Highway 1 RapidBus from Langley and a new King George B-Line in Surrey, but assumes the property tax hike will stay in place. Fassbender said he hopes the mayors’ council “takes a breath” and fully considers the audit rather than rashly chopping the tax.

“If we don’t leave the property tax component there we will be cutting significant numbers of bus hours in the region,” he warned. A two-cent gas tax increase approved last year is covering TransLink’s contribution to build the Evergreen Line to Coquitlam. But the mayors last year approved the property tax hike on the expectation it would not actually be used and a different source, such as a vehicle levy, would substitute for it. Long-term funding is needed not just for general bus service improvement but also more rapid transit lines now being planned to run through Surrey to Langley and White Rock and west in Vancouver along Broadway to UBC.

consider what more can be adjusted based on the audit, but added route cuts would affect riders. She said axing a bus route that runs only 30 per cent full now but is growing and could reach 65 per cent in five years could leave residents without a transit option, forcing them into cars. Olewiler suggests the region consider whether it’s an acceptable trade-off to pay a bit more for some bus routes in order to ensure there’s a broad network of usable bus service running often enough. “There’s not a lot of lowhanging fruit – given that they agree completely with us on the efficiencies we have already identified,” she said of the audit. “We are going to do everything possible to find both the long-term solution and keep our system whole.”

Tien Sher brings micro suites to Surrey

Striking the right Balance Surrey will soon be home to the smallest condominiums in Canada with the opening of Balance, a new development in Surrey City Centre built by Tien Sher. The four-storey building will hold 56 suites, ranging from 290 to 653 square feet and starting at $109,900. “Real estate prices in the Lower Mainland are among the richest in North America,” says Tien Sher president Charan Sethi. “We wanted to build suites that renters could afford to purchase – today.” Even with their small size, the condos (called micro suites) at Balance will include beautiful features such as

stainless-steel appliances, hardwood floors and a private balcony. “Balance is unique,” says Sethi. “No suite comes with a parking stall but they are available for purchase. A 2012 parking study we commissioned showed most purchasers will forego car ownership and its associated costs, in favour of an affordable home purchase. Balance homeowners’ transportation options include bus, SkyTrain and a carshare vehicle onsite. Who needs a car with such as short walk to municipal amenities, shopping and services?” Sales are expected to begin in January. For more information, visit www.tiensher.com.

There’s Something about Woodbridge’s Abbey Road By Kerry Vital

The original Abbey Road Studios started life as a townhome before becoming the iconic recording mecca it is today. Fans of The Beatles will quickly recognize the name of Woodbridge’s South Surrey townhome development, but Abbey Road is appealing to a much larger audience. Abbey Road is built in a Georgian style like its namesake, with classic brick detailing, iron gates and window boxes and shutters. “The architecture is unique,” says sales manager Tara Desmond. Inside, the two-, three- and fourbedroom floorplans are spacious and open, with nine-foot ceilings and wideplank wood laminate flooring on the main level. Huge windows let the light pour in and bring the outdoors to you, though you may prefer to spend most of your time on your own patio or deck that is tailor-made for coming together and entertaining. Oversized wood baseboards throughout add a touch of understated beauty to the proceedings. The kitchens are elegant, with quartz countertops, classic shaker-style cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances. The ceramic and glass tile backsplash is complemented by the under-cabinet lighting, with pot lights illuminating the rest of the space. If you’re looking for a bit more prep space or room to eat a quick meal, Woodbridge is offering the option of including a kitchen island with a breakfast bar in some floorplans. Relaxation comes standard at Abbey Road with its spacious bathrooms. Stone countertops are offset by custom shaker-style vanities and his-andhers square undermount sinks in the ensuite, and a deep soaker tub is tailor-made for luxury. The secondary bathrooms feature custom vanities of their own, along with oversized glazed ceramic tile flooring and chic vanity mirrors with solid wood frames, to always put you in the best light. Abbey Road is just moments from shopping and restaurants at Morgan Crossing and Grandview Corners, leisure and recreation at the golf courses, beaches and parks in the area, and education at nearby schools. “You’re close to everything but you’re not sitting inside the amenities,” says Desmond. “You’re always close to the action.” At Abbey Road itself, there is a community room perfect for parties and a traditional English garden with

You’re always close to the action,” says Abbey Road sales manager Tara Desmond. a children’s play area, along with the gorgeous mature landscaping that surrounds the development. “The amenity space is a place to meet people, have a glass of wine,” Desmond says. Woodbridge is offering a purchase incentive for the month of October. Buyers are given a $10,000 credit that can be used towards the purchase of upgrades like ceiling speakers or crown mouldings or professional series kitchen appliances. Prices start from the mid$300,000s. For more information, visit abbeyroadliving.com or call 604-5420660.

The homes at Woodbridge’s Abbey Road showcase wide-plank wood laminate flooring throughout the main ilving areas, above, and tons of natural light from the huge windows, top. Located in a great neighbourhood in Morgan Heights, Abbey Road will appeal to homeowners of all ages.
