A Squamish First Nation song, a dancing wildcat, choral performances and Premier Christy Clark serving cake—it was all part of the official opening ceremony for the new Burnaby Central secondary Tuesday afternoon. Clark, who grew up in Burnaby and whose late father once taught at the old Central early in his career, presided over the ceremony for the

school which opened its doors to students just over a year ago. She told the students present that “in the next 10 years, if we play our cards right, if we’re purposeful and stick to a plan, there will be a million job openings in British Columbia.” And the many training facilities for trades, sciences and arts built into the new $55-million building will help create opportunities for B.C. students to be “first in line” for those future jobs. “And you never know where you’ll end up when you graduate

from a Burnaby school,” she said with a smile, citing not only herself as a Burnaby South grad, but Central alumni Michael J. Fox, the actor and activist, NHL star Glenn Anderson, Iron Chef Rob Feenie and Olympic boxer Dale Walters. Clark noted she had been “deeply touched” by the highly-publicized story of Amanda Todd, the Port Coquitlam teen who recently committed suicide after years of severe bullying. “Amanda’s message to us was that none of us should be bystanders. That all of us have a central role to

Citing as an example Central alumnus Curtis Moss, who represented Canada in the javelin at the London Olympics, Mayor Derek Corrigan said,

Burnaby is continuing to look at policing alternatives to the RCMP after being forced by the province to sign what it considered a lessthan-palatable 20-year contract last June. The RCMP contract includes an opt-out clause in which participating municipalities would need to give two-years notice before changing to a different policing system. But first, Burnaby and several other cities are studying the feasibility and ramifications of such a change. Burnaby city staff are working with counterparts in Port Coquitlam, North Vancouver District, North Vancouver City and Richmond on the study, using a 10-yearold Surrey study as a baseline to start. The focus has been on what the real costs are to leave the RCMP, including transition costs, the annual costs of running their own police department, and the cost of potential mergers of police forces, said Mayor Derek Corrigan. see NEW WEST, A3

component” of that to cover “uncertainty over the scope of possible environmental mitigation measures.” Corrigan said they (the ministry) “know it shouldn’t be above [$3 million] and if it is, it should be in a minor way.” Council approved the 50-50 funding proposal at Monday’s meeting and city staff are checking with the province “to see if that was what they were agreeing to.” If it goes ahead, the city share of the funding would come from gaming revenues. “It’s a real stretch for us,” Corrigan said. “It’s not something we’ve been willing to do, is to step in and start funding the regional transportation network. But this was such an important issue to the future development of Lougheed Town Centre that we decided we would try to protect at least the possibility of having a station there.” On Wednesday, a transportation ministry spokesperson said by email, “Government continues to work with City of Burnaby on funding for a future Cameron Station for the Evergreen Line. Details will be available once all discussions are complete.”

Burnaby Art Gallery gets major donation A Canadian artist has personally donated a collection of his own works to the Burnaby Art Gallery. The gift, a selection of 102 printed works on paper by J.C. Heywood, is valued at almost $80,000, and has been certified by the Canadian Cultural Property Export Review Board (CCPERB) as cultural property of “outstanding significance and national importance,” according to a press release by the gallery. The pieces will be added to the BAG’s permanent collection to enhance its existing holdings of Heywood’s work. His most recent solo exhibition, J.C. Heywood: A Life in Layers, was organized by the BAG and has been touring across Canada since 2008. “This is a significant addition to the Burnaby Art Gallery’s Permanent Collection of over 4,600 works of art on paper,” said BAG director and curator Darrin Martens in the

release. “J.C. Heywood is already a cornerstone of our collection and this donation of 102 prints is remarkable as Heywood has established himself as a distinguished Canadian artist with an outstanding reputation in the printmaking genre.” Heywood was born in Toronto, raised in Ontario and studied at the Ontario College of Art. He has worked as a professor of fine art at Canadian universities including Queen’s University at Kingston, the University of Guelph, and the Nova Scotia College of Art in Halifax. He has exhibited widely in Canada with several solo exhibitions, and has participated in international print shows in Berlin, Yugoslavia, Taiwan, Norway, China, Poland and New Mexico.  Heywood currently lives and works in Montreal.

The bonus will result in the developer making a $140,525 contribution to the city’s community benefit account for the Metrotown area. Of that, 20 per cent, or $28,105, will be allocated to the city’s affordable and special-needs housing sub-account according to city policy. The project will comprise four two-bedroom townhouse units, ranging in size from 876 to 930 square feet, six three-bedroom units ranging from 1,247 to 1,335 square feet, and 18 parking spaces including two visitor spots and one combined visitor-car wash stall. Public hearings for both rezoning applications will be held Nov. 27 at 7 p.m. in city hall council chambers.

OPINION NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

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

ADRIAN RAESIDE:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Let’s talk about it A memo from the B.C. Ministry of Education to all 60 school districts last week advises teachers not to show the video in which Amanda Todd tells her tragic tale, flash card by flash card. The video has been viewed close to 20 million times on YouTube already. Memorial pages on Facebook have garnered sympathies from Russia to Texas, while other teens have posted their own videos to YouTube in reaction to the suffering and harassment Amanda faced and which led to her suicide. Ministry of Education antibullying staff fear that footage of Amanda’s video could trigger other vulnerable teens to commit suicide. Amanda’s mother, Carol Todd, however, wants the video to be used to help others who may be suffering as her 15-year-old daughter did. The B.C. Teachers’ Federation says the ministry’s request ignores the reality that many kids have seen the video and need or want to talk about it. And so they should. Rather than restrict the video from classrooms, why not show the video at lunch in the library or cafeteria or gymnasium of high schools, at least, and host a discussion afterwards. Send home a permission form to parents. Make available staff and resources at the viewing for students who might have questions afterwards or want to seek help.  For the ministry to suggest that the video doesn’t help address bullying issues is rather simplistic, because the video touches other important topics, as well, such as online safety and social media responsibility. Would the ministry rather a troubled teen watch the video at home, alone? Amanda made the video because she felt that way, so others wouldn’t also. The discussion has already begun. Let it continue. —Black Press

What to do when the buns fly Recently, our regional president approached me with a request to address a gathering of our sales personnel, and perhaps share some “indelible impressions” from my years as a journalist and community newspaper editor. Indeed, there are more than a few of those tucked in the corners of my cranial dust bin. One immediately came to mind … the day I arrived at work to find a bullet hole in my window. Now, I don’t know if it was meant to send a message to me for some editorial transgression, real or imagined, or whether it was just a stray round, but it did leave an indelible impression. On the other hand, it was in Surrey. Just another day at the office… On a similar, but less dangerous note, is one of my favourite tales involving a certain mayor, who went on to become an MLA. He was a chief suspect in the Bun-gate Incident, as related by a reporter hailing from Portugal Cove, Newfoundland.

Andrew Holota This young scribe wrote to me, among others, to complain about the nefarious behaviour of our august head of civic state, and/or aided and abetted by a member of the Fraser Valley Regional District. It seems the complainant, a Mr. Jones, was doing his due diligence behind a notebook and camera at a function of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities convention, held in that particular year, as you might guess, Newfoundland. Mr. Jones claimed he was merely doing his job, taking pictures of Premier Clyde Wells during his speech at the Saint John’s Memorial Stadium. Several FCM delegates apparently were of the opinion that Mr. Jones had overstayed his

7438 Fraser Park Dr., Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9 newsroom@burnabynewsleader.com burnabynewsleader.com | newwestnewsleader.com

media welcome in front of the podium, and was blocking their view of Wells. Suddenly ... whack! The reporter said he was struck in the back by a dinner bun. Mr. Jones asserted that the mayor of my community at the time was among the more aggressive of those heckling him to move, along with a representative of our regional district. One of them was the culprit, he insisted. Both men vehemently denied responsibility for launching the bread bomb. After considering the information as presented, I considered the scenario rather suspicious. For starters, it was alleged that the bun was thrown to make Mr. Jones cease and desist his photographic distractions. Now, why would two veteran politicians be that eager to see the premier of Newfoundland? Perhaps instead, the bun was not targeted at the reporter, but was meant for Clyde!

Now that would be more believable, and quite acceptable political behaviour. And if so, the reporter ought to have been proud to take one for his province. In a subsequent conversation with our accused mayor, I assured him we would not be pursuing a story on the unsubstantiated matter. Nevertheless, I told him I was rather disappointed in the reporter’s response. Had he been a member of my staff, I would have fully expected him to return fire. And in case such an incident might occur in our own community, I warned the good mayor that I was issuing each of my journalists with three kaiser rolls, and orders to engage if their persons were threatened or targeted by incoming baked goods. Local politicians should consider themselves duly advised. Andrew Holota is editor of the Abbotsford News.

EMail letters@burnabynewsleader.com

Bullies should be made to feel afraid We all want justice and value for Amanda Todd’s suicide and cause, but few understand that there’s more than one way to do this.  An inferior way is memorials and rallies and “anti-bullying” T-shirts. It teaches teens and parents and gives victims 1-800 crisis hotlines. It relies on cultural/ attitudinal change on bullying. The superior, more powerful way is scaring teens, specifically bullies. It involves making them feel less safe and less secure about harming or embarrassing others. Scariness is highly effective; social awareness, hardly so. Indeed, Amanda is the victim of flawed B.C school policy (that fails to target and terrify teen bullies) much more than she is the victim of bullies themselves. (What form of scariness should be is another topic!)  The yet-unidentified U.S. predator who harmed Amanda is past child luring and bullying and into first-degree murder. In my view, spending years tracking a child, circulating her nude photo, inciting her schoolmates against

her, and driving her into anxiety, depression and suicide equals first degree. Here’s another problem: Amanda is also the victim of reprehensible, despicable Canadian judges who favour criminals. As well, the Criminal Code fails to define as first degree murder what her predator committed. Thang Vu Burnaby

Canada not for sale!  I congratulate the Harper government for pulling the plug on the LNG deal. This decision by the Conservative Party restores my faith and confidence.    The sale of our natural resources to state-owned companies should not be on the table in the first place.    There has to be a different way to raise money for the development of our buried treasure.  Immediate satisfaction has long term consequences.  Hildegard M. Weber Burnaby

sCary situation I freely admit it.  The trade agreement with China scares the hell out of me. Why? Because I don’t know a damn thing about it. And how could I? It was negotiated in absolute secrecy. But, of course, that’s the hallmark of the Harper government. Its credo is not to tell anyone what they’re up to until the very last moment then spring it on them, whether it be the official opposition or members of the public or whoever. The trick is to catch everyone off guard and hit them fast and hard. And when it comes to those matters that constitutionally requires Parliamentary oversight, it’s best not to come at it on an issue-byissue basis but, rather, stack it up in a pile so high and wide that the details get lost in the pure massiveness of it all.  Democratic principles? Well, actually there is nothing undemocratic about it, I guess, as long as everything is done by

the rules. On the other hand, who gets to make the rules? I freely admit it. The Harper government scares the hell out of me. Bill Brassington Burnaby

skytrain too priCey The real reason for the newest flavour of taxation policies— road pricing—to further fund a decrepit regional transit authority, can be laid squarely at the feet of both the SkyTrain light metro and the BC Liberal government’s pilfering of gas/ carbon tax monies for general revenue. Despite the hype and hoopla about SkyTrain, the proprietary light-metro is just too expensive to build and operate, as evidenced by the Canada Line.  On page 15 of the 1993 joint GVRD/Ministry of Transportation report, “The Cost of Transporting People in the BC Lower Mainland,” it was revealed the annual provincial subsidy for SkyTrain was $157.6 million; the combined subsidy for the diesel

and trolley buses was just $132.4 million! With the addition of the Millennium Line, this subsidy increased to over $200 million and with the Canada Line, this annual subsidy has now surpassed $300 million. It becomes easier to see why there is no extra money for TransLink, because TransLink is already quietly getting a big chunk of transit cash from the province. The Evergreen Line will only add to this annual subsidy, further exacerbating problems with TransLink’s dubious finances. TransLink is deliberately hiding the real truth about their ongoing financial malaise because they have compliant regional mayors who seem ever so willing to destroy their political careers to force yet onerous another tax on the taxed-out local taxpayer. Does anyone of them remember the HST debacle?  Road pricing is all about once again screwing the taxpayer to pay for bureaucratic and political hubris. Malcolm Johnston, Delta

Carrier OF THe WeeK: Brandon

My name is Brandon. I am 14 years old and in grade 10. I have been delivering the New Westminster NewsLeader in Queensborough for almost 2 years. I like walking through my neighbourhood and saying “Hi!” to everyone that I have come to know. I also enjoy playing soccer and hanging out with my friends. I recently got back from a fantastic 3-week holiday to Las Vegas, San Francisco and the Grand Canyon – an 8000 kilometer road trip. My future plans are to become a chef and do a lot more travelling!

Burnaby Public Library has been awarded a 2012 Representative’s Award of Excellence: Cultural Heritage and Diversity by B.C.’s Representative for Children and Youth, May Ellen TurpelLafond. The award recognizes its Embracing Diversity: Sharing Our Songs and Rhymes Project, a web-based project that uses children’s songs and rhymes in more than a dozen languages to encourage cultural diversity and inclusiveness. The project started in 2010 with local families being invited to perform their favourite childhood songs and rhymes. Languages featured are Arabic, Cantonese, Dari, English, Farsi, Filipino, French, Hindi, Korean, Mandarin, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish, Vietnamese and Urdu. The performances were videotaped by the SFU

Teaching and Learning Centre and showcase some of the world’s most popular children’s melodies, including The Wheels on the Bus and the Korean Tadpole Song.  Each performance is accompanied by scrolling phonetic text, allowing people to join in, no matter what language they speak. All the songs and rhymes are also translated into English, to encourage sharing between cultures. “What makes this project truly unique is that you are also given the opportunity to get to learn about the person sharing the song or rhyme as they share their own personal stories,” says Edel Toner-Rogala, Burnaby’s chief librarian. “It is through the sharing of our stories that we build communities that are more tolerant, more understanding and, ultimately, more compassionate.”

Cup of coffee leads man to $25,000 A Burnaby man has won $25,000 thanks to his coffee habit. Randy Dean Hedman, 56, buys his morning caffeine fix at his local 7-Eleven most days and recently collected the final game ticket he needed to win the $25,000-collect-to-win prize as part of the 7-Eleven Big Summer Win contest. “I ran into my house yelling, ‘bingo, bingo,’ knew that I had won big!” says Hedman. “I’m now finally able to replace my broken-down car with a shiny, new pick-up truck. I’ve never won anything before so it feels just great.”

VICTORIA – More than 2,000 protesters gathered on the B.C. legislature lawn Monday, some promising to provoke arrests as well as criticizing proposed heavy oil pipelines from Alberta to the B.C. coast. Organizers offered training in civil disobedience techniques to the more than 1,000 people who signed up for the protest, under the banner of Defend Our Coast. Sponsored by Greenpeace and the Council of Canadians, the coalition includes unions, aboriginal leaders and environmental organizations. Victoria Police were out in force to back up legislature security, who locked the buildings down and turned away visitors for the day. The protest focused on two proposed projects, Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline from northern Alberta to Kitimat and the pending application by Kinder Morgan to twin its oil pipeline that has been carrying Alberta oil to Burnaby and Washington state

Tom FleTcher/Black Press

Communication, Energy and Paperworkers president David Coles speaks to crowd at the B.C. legislature Monday.

for more than 60 years. Among the speakers was David Coles, president of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union. He said his union is “diametrically opposed” to pipeline expansion, despite the fact it represents employees at the Chevron refinery in Burnaby that is supplied by the Trans Mountain oil pipeline from Alberta. The new proposals are “job killers” because more diluted bitumen from the Alberta oil sands will be shipped out raw, either from Burnaby or Kitimat, Coles said.

Protesters ringed the crowd with sections of black banner described as being the length of an oil tanker, and staked it to the legislature lawn. That is technically a violation of legislature rules, which are aimed at preventing people from setting up tents and other structures on the lawn. Art Sterritt, executive director of the Coastal First Nations group on B.C.’s North Coast, said the protest is designed to show Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Premier Christy Clark that people are prepared to “stand in front of the bulldozers” to stop the projects.

Stilt walkers are an important part of the Haunted Village Festivities – this mummy was part of the fun in 2011.

Halloween:

Spooky, but not too spooky at the Village

hen it comes to Halloween fun, I’m not just the curator at the Burnaby Village Museum— I’m also a customer!

My three-year-old and I will be here for Haunted Village, taking place evenings Oct. 26, 27 and 28. She can enjoy trick-or-treating, unlimited carousel rides, and a cast of fun characters that might be a little spooky, but definitely not the stuff nightmares are made of. I can check “Halloween” off the parenting must-do list with as little fuss as possible. The theme this year is the “witch’s ball”—the Village main street will be taken over by a Warlock DJ, and performance artist Marya Gadison is back as “Belle of the Ball,”

encouraging visitors to dance to the beat of the DJ’s tunes. A cast of other entertainers rounds out the fun, including stilt-walkers and a living statue. Volunteers and staff will be dressed in costumes produced in the museum’s costume shop, and wearing make-up done by professionals-in-training at John Casablancas. Decorations throughout the Village create a layer of whimsy, from a General Store window display featuring the latest styles in witches’ hats, to the “blood bank” display at the Village bank. If nighttime events are too late for your little one, the Kid’s Halloween Carnival at the Carousel on Saturday and Sunday is a fun way to spend

the afternoon. The carousel is decorated and available for unlimited rides, and children can participate in carnival games and Halloween crafts. For more grown-up tastes, there’s the History & Hauntings Walking Tour, featuring five historic buildings in the Deer Lake area, including the Ceperley Mansion. All the Halloween events are Oct. 26 through and Advocating equal28, opportunity for all registration entrance children,and students and workers. fees Let’s are required. take this To dayavoid to reflect on disappointment, pre-register hard-won workers’ rights by by calling 604 297-4565.

H LLOWEEN Some great ideas for post-Halloween pumpkins Autumn is the season when pumpkins are ripe for the picking, and thousands of people flock to local farms and roadside vendors to select perfect pumpkins. Many pumpkins are turned into decorative jack-o’lanterns for Halloween, only to be tossed in the trash come November 1. That could be because many people are unaware of the various ways they can put pumpkins to good use. Pumpkins are gourds and members of the squash family and have been grown and used for thousands of years. Evidence suggests that pumpkins date back to 7000 B.C., possibly originating in Mexico. Today they are widely used for decorating around Halloween, but there are many other things that can be done with pumpkins. Create a food vessel

Pumpkins can be transformed into bowls to hold soup, punch, fruit, or even dips. Make sure the pumpkin has been cleaned

Make puMpkin stoCk While vegetable or meatbased stocks may be the standards, pumpkin can be used to make stock too. Clean out the seeds from the stringy guts of the pumpkin and put the guts into a pot filled with water. Add celery, carrots or any other aromatic vegetables for extra flavor. Allow to boil at least 30 minutes. The stock is ready when it begins to change colour. Strain and save stock for use in a variety of recipes.

well of its pulp and seeds, as well as the stringy flesh that is inside. Rub the inside walls of the pumpkin with oil to keep them from drying out and caving in, then fill with your food of choice. Make puMpkin puree

Puree from a pumpkin can be used in all types of recipes, from soups to baked goods. The puree also can replace the oil in cake recipes. Cut the pumpkin and scoop out the seeds and stringy membranes. Then place it cut-side-down in a pan with a little water in the bottom. Bake at 350 F for around 90 minutes. The flesh will become tender and easily removable. Blend the resulting puree in a food processor and reserve flesh for recipes. Some pumpkins are sweeter or better to use as part of recipes. Check the variety you’re purchasing. Whip up a faCial

Use some pumpkin puree with a little brown

add to CoMpost bins

Pumpkins are staples of autumn decorating. But there are more uses for these orange gourds than just carving them into Jack-O-Lanterns.

sugar and a dash of milk to create a vitamin-rich facial mask. Get illuMinated

Turn hollowed-out mini pumpkins into candles. Melt soy wax, beeswax or the gel type of candle wax that can be found at most craft stores. Add your favorite scent and place a wick into the bottom of

the pumpkin. Then pour the wax into hallowedout space and allow it to harden. Try the same thing with bumpy and multicolored gourds for added decorating appeal. turn the puMpkin into a floWer pot

Fill a hollow pumpkin with soil. You may not have to worry about

scraping the pumpkin completely clean because the pulp can be used to help fertilize the potting soil. Plant your favorite fall flowers into the festive and earth-friendly flower pot. When the pumpkin shows signs of rotting, simply put the whole thing into a traditional flower pot or bury it directly in the ground.

Pumpkins are rich in zinc, vitamin A and vitamin C. Add discarded pumpkins to your compost to replenish the soil. turn into a billoWinG Cauldron

Instead of a standard jack-o’-lantern, put a glass jar into the carved pumpkin, add dish soap and hot water and then add a piece of dry ice. Bubbles and smoke will pour out of the pumpkin to create a spooktacular effect.

Tricks, TreaTs & everything sweet! kids from 2 – 12 ...in costume and with a parent, can enjoy their ghouls and goodies in safety and warmth!

Transit fare evasion losses doubled over last decade

jnagel@blackpress.ca

- The 11 per cent fare increase in 2010 that made transit less affordable to some people. - Expansion of the U-Pass program, making it more profitable to make and sell illegal counterfeits. - Increased ridership due to the Canada Line’s launch. - Media reports that fare evasion goes unpunished. - More chronic fare evaders due to the economic downturn. Coast Mountain Bus Co. spokesman Derek Zabel estimated fare evasion runs at 4.5 to six per cent overall and accounts for $6.2 million in lost fare box revenue on buses. “It’s a problem across North America,” he said. The Toronto Transit Commission estimates fare evasion at about two per cent, or $20 million a year. Zabel said fare-notpaid button presses

by drivers are used to track which routes have higher evasion routes – down to specific stops and times of day – for potential enforcement. Talk of TransLink collecting new taxes or road tolls to expand the transit system has fueled a backlash on talk radio and letters to the editor, with many people insisting fare evasion be fixed first. Some observers say the issue is being used to derail a serious discussion of how to pay for improved transit. “The agenda is don’t give TransLink any more money,” said SFU City Program director Gordon Price. Transit advocate and former Vancouver Coun. Peter Ladner said fare evasion should be fought, but it shouldn’t overshadow the big picture of providing adequate service as Metro Vancouver’s

Bus drivers pushed their fare-not-paid buttons 2.5 million times last year to record passengers who boarded without paying the full transit fare. While that amounts to barely one per cent of the 230 million bus trips in the region in 2011, the real number is believed to be higher because some drivers, frustrated by lax enforcement, have given up pushing the button. “They’ve done it diligently and nothing’s happened,” said Don MacLeod, president of the union representing bus drivers. He estimates the lost fares add up to at least $5 million a year from buses alone. The recentOur provincial Our Vision: Better health. Best in health care. Vision: Better health. Best in health care.

population climbs. “To think we shouldn’t go ahead with transit improvements until we fix that – it’s a distraction,” Ladner said. “It’s not a reason to walk way from the funding discussion.” While MacLeod would like more done to crack down on scofflaws who pose a threat to drivers, he also agrees fare evasion is insignificant compared to TransLink’s $1.4-billion annual budget, never mind the additional hundreds of millions of dollars he and others argue is needed. “It really is a drop in the bucket,” MacLeod said. “If everybody paid their fare it wouldn’t get us close to the service and the uplift that’s needed out there.”

Turnstiles won’t stop all cheating The provincial audit counts on a big drop in fare evasion once TransLink activates its $171-million system of fare gates and Compass smart cards. But officials say some cheating will still continue. As with other jurisdictions, dishonest passengers will find ways crawl under or over the paddle-style gates or go through two at a time. Transit Police plan continued fare checks within fare-paid zones to catch those cheats. But the audit also warns other transit authorities that have introduced smart card payment have run into significant levels of fraud. “It is similar to credit care fraud and will exist regardless of the security features in place,” the audit said, adding Transit Police will need to develop more sophisticated investigative techniques to pursue smart card fraudsters. TransLink officials expect smart cards will reduce much existing fraud, such as the counterfeiting of monthly passes and U-Passes. The net savings from the gates and cards project is estimated at $22 million over 15 years. Part of that is through less fare evasion, but also reduced ticket printing costs, faster bus loading and increased ridership due to an improved perception of safety. twitter.com/jeffnagel

introduced next year. TransLink has also been given new collection tools to enforce payment of fare evasion fines using ICBC and bill collectors. It claims early signs of progress, with markedly fewer people caught without the correct fare in September fare checks. The government audit gave no clear prescription to combat fare evasion, predicting SkyTrain fare gates will “dramatically reduce” the problem, allowing TransLink to thin the ranks of Transit Police, who cost $27 million a year. That was the last of 27 recommendations that focused on making transit more efficient to cut costs, even if it means cutting service frequency on some routes. The report listed five likely factors behind the increase in fare evasion:

Tourism industry bigger than most think A lot of people don’t even realize they work in the tourism industry. In fact, it includes almost anyone who comes in direct contact with the public, from taxi drivers, to servers in restaurants, to merchants. “It’s service oriented,” says Tej Kainth, the executive director of Tourism New Westminster. “They’re the first point of contact when people visit your city, they set the tone for the visitor experience.” The tourism and hospitality industry is extremely diverse, with more than 400 different occupations. Some lead to longer-term careers. Some fit well for those seeking part-time work, like students or older workers not yet ready to retire. British Columbia’s tourism industry will be a leader in provincial job growth as businesses look to fill 101,000 new job openings by 2020, according to a study of labour demand and supply by go2, the BC tourism industry’s human resource

association. Locally, Kainth expects tourism-related jobs to boom in New West as the new multi-use civic centre currently under construction downtown attracts visitors to its facilities and delegates attending meetings and functions. That influx will spin off to local restaurants and businesses. To help them prepare, Tourism New Westminster offers customer service training workshops. “We give them the fundamental tools to become a better service professional to deal with visitors,” says Kainth. “Any time you have a connection with a client or visitor, it’s important to go above and beyond. People still rely on the face-to-face experience. Making a good impression is especially lasting in this age of social media where a tale of woe can quickly spread over email, Twitter and Facebook. To help fill the expected

need for workers in the tourism industry, the Tourism Labour Market Strategy, released in the spring of 2012 by go2, sets out the plan to recruit, retain and train employees. Nearly half of the 101,000 openings will be new jobs created by the tourism industry across the province. The rest will be

replacements for workers who have retired or otherwise moved on. “The labour strategy co-ordinated by go2 is a key pillar of industry growth in the province,” says Lana Denoni, chair of the Tourism Industry Association of British Columbia. “Without it, we simply wouldn’t have the skilled

workers in place to deliver the visitor experience throughout B.C.” Kainth says local institutions like Douglas College and BCIT in Burnaby do a great job creating specialty programs to train people for careers in the tourism sector. And there’s no shortage of opportunity for graduates.

The tourism and hospitality industry generated an annual GDP of more than $6.4 billion in 2010, more than forestry, mining, oil and gas extraction, and agriculture. It generated $13.4 billion in annual revenue in 2010, a 25.5 per cent increase over revenues in 2004. That’s an annual growth rate of 4.2 per cent. The provincial government’s Gaining the Edge: A Five-year Strategy for Tourism in British Columbia targets revenue growth of five per cent a year that will to $18 billion in tourism spending by 2016. “After several years of slow labour growth, the tourism industry is poised to expand,” says Arlene Keis, chief executive officer of go2. “The anticipated growth in tourism reinforces the need to plan carefully and ensure that there are enough workers with the right skills in the right communities to meet the tourism industry’s future labour needs.”

The Burnaby Lake Rugby Club fell to a 1-2 record in BC Rugby’s men’s premier league after losing 30-22 to the visiting University of Victoria Vikings last Saturday. Burnaby was done in by the return of Canadian international rugby sevens player Phil Mack who scored two tries shortly after stepping off a plane from a tournament in Australia. “Phil Mack was excellent,” said Burnaby Lake director of rugby Simon Smoldon in a press release. “He is one of the most dangerous players in the league both on offence and defence.” Burnaby held a 10-3 lead at halftime. The BLRC men will be in Victoria on Saturday to play James Bay (2-1). In first division play, the UVic Norseman downed Burnaby Lake 32-29. The women’s division one team was also defeated 29-22 by Bayside. It was BLRC’s first loss in four games this season.

Almost a third of Metro Vancouverites speak a language other than English most often at home, according to newly released census data. The results from the 2011 count highlight the region’s growing cultural and linguistic diversity as a result of steady immigration from Asia. The single most prevalent immigrant language in the region is Punjabi – accounting for nearly 147,000 speakers or 6.4 per cent of Metro Vancouver’s population of just under 2.3 million. But Chinese languages make up much more if clumped together. The census counted 133,000 Cantonese speakers (5.8 per cent), 92,000 Mandarin speakers (four per cent) and another 115,000 non-specifed Chinese speakers (five per cent) in Metro.

Philipine-based Tagalog is Canada’s fastest-growing language and is now spoken by three per cent of Metro Vancouver’s population, while the next top languages here are Korean (two per cent), Farsi, Spanish, German and Hindi (1.1 per cent.) Just 58 per cent of Metro Vancouver residents speak only English at home, down from 65.2 per cent in 2001. Increasingly, Metro residents are speaking both English and their mother tongue at home – that mixed use was reported by 24 per cent, up from 17.8 per cent a decade earlier. Slightly more residents reported being unable to converse in the dominant official language. Nearly 130,000 residents, or 5.7 per cent of the Metro population, indicated they could not speak English, up from five per cent in 2006. More than seven per cent said they were officially bilingual, speaking both English and French, while just 0.1 per cent said French was their only

official language. Surrey is home to 94,000 South Asians who list Punjabi as their mother tongue – they make up 20 per cent of the city’s population and two-thirds of the Punjabi speakers in Metro Vancouver. Half of Metro’s 23,000 Hindi speakers also live in Surrey. Richmond is home to 23 per cent of Metro’s 330,000 residents who grew up speaking Chinese languages. In Abbotsford-Mission, 69 per cent list English as their mother tongue and 79 per cent generally speak English only at home. The census also counted 28,000 in Abbotsford-Mission whose mother tongue is Punjabi – 16.7 per cent of the population – while German was second at 6,500 or 3.9 per cent. Dutch, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog and Vietnamese were next most common, at one per cent or less.

Collection 45 pairs up with Vancouver Contemporary Art Gallery

Indulging your artistic side In partnership with the Vancouver Contemporary Art Gallery, Collection 45 is introducing Art Studio 45, a studio facility that will give a local artist an amazing opportunity. Collection 45 is a condominium building in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood featuring studio, oneand two-bedroom homes. Now, a space will be set aside in the building for one artist to have an art studio where he or she can work. “We wanted to promote contemporary art within the community,” says Ameet Johal, marketing director for Fifth Avenue Marketing.

“We consider the homes to be like a piece of art,” she says, adding, “The residents are all very design-savvy people.” The artist will be chosen by the executive director of the VCAG, Nigel Prince, and then will hold the studio space for one year. “They will put a panel together, call for submissions with some requirements, and then make a decision,” on who the artist will be, Johal says. The artist will be able to take possession of their studio in late 2013. For more information about the art initiative, visit www.collection45.com.

Bluetree has also provided 1,800 square feet of amenity space for its homeowners, including a fitness room and lounge with a full kitchen and bathroom. “We are committed to delivering an extraordinary home-buying experience from beginning to end,” says Kasahara. “We come from ParkLane Homes and its 30-plus years of award-winning

customer satisfaction. Bluetree’s Customer Care program will build on this tradition of ensuring a long-term commitment to our customers, long after the keys are handed over.” Homes start at $199,900.

Vibrant neighbourhood in Coquitlam

Bluetree brings a French feel to Mackin Park By Kerry Vital

Bluetree Homes is bringing modern style to a heritage neighbourhood with its newest project, Bluetree Homes at Mackin Park. “There are lots of options for buyers in the Coquitlam area,” says Yosh Kasahara, general manager of sales and marketing for Bluetree Homes. “What we can offer here is the best value for the dollar in this market. You simply cannot find a comparably appointed home in a location this good, built by a developer with a stellar track record, all for this price.” Bluetree Homes at Mackin Park is located in the heart of Maillardville, a walkable, village-like community with a rich sense of history. “The building will serve as a new landmark for this community that already has so much going for it,” says Kasahara. “In addition to shopping, restaurants, parks and other amenities within walking distance, it has a vibrant past rooted in its French-Canadian heritage.” Top-rated schools, including some with French programs, are also within walking distance of the homes at Mackin Park, so the area is as great for

young families as it is for professional couples and downsizers. The inspired design at Mackin Park starts with the exterior of the building. “The French-inspired architecture of the building is a nod to its past while also artfully combining modern elements to create a building that would look just as at home in Montreal as it would in Paris,” says Kasahara. The one-and two-bedroom low-rise apartments are spacious and inviting, with floorplans ranging between 548 and 1,013 square feet. The high-end finishings include stainless-steel appliances and engineered stone countertops in the kitchens, complemented by a hand-set marble tile backsplash and chic squareline two-tone laminate cabinetry. Kasahara says the homes will feature several space-saving innovations, including built-in mirrored cabinets in the bathrooms, and spice racks and pull-out pantry drawers in the kitchens. Every home includes its own private patio or balcony, so you will always

The building will serve as a new landmark for this community,” says Yosh Kasahara, general manager of sales and marketing.
