The crosswalk between Tim Hortons and Starbucks on Sixth Street is busy through much of the day.

Light idea at coffee crosswalk shelved City decides to postpone putting traffic signal at Sixth and Belmont Grant Granger

ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

Although the city has set aside money for a traffic light to replace New Westminster’s coffee crosswalk it will stay the way it is for now. The city’s 2012 capital works program includes installation of a light to replace a heavily used pedestrian crosswalk that spans Sixth Street at Belmont with a Tim Hortons at one end and a Starbucks

mere steps away at the other side. When Bart Slotman of Uptown Property Group, which runs the Westminster Centre Mall that houses Starbucks, saw the light on the city’s capital works program website map, he contacted the city because he doesn’t believe a change is needed. Slotman said although it’s a busy crosswalk, it’s unlikely a traffic light would improve public safety. With signals already at Fifth and Sixth avenues, and cars going in and out of parking stalls along Sixth Street, traffic already goes at a slow

pace and drivers have no problem stopping when pedestrians enter the crosswalk. “Our gut feeling is just adding a light is not going to make it safer. The intersection works quite well. The presence of a crosswalk actually slows cars down,” said Slotman. “Is it a reality, or is it a perception that it is a safety issue? My gut feeling is it’s a perception not a reality. I can’t remember the last time there was an accident there…Our concern is that if you start to add another light, it’s undoubtedly going to add to the vehicular congestion in the area.”

Slotman said a light might discourage walkers while the mall would like to see the street friendlier to pedestrians. He pointed out any traffic bottleneck on Sixth Street is more a product of the light at Sixth and Sixth because frequently drivers are forced to wait for pedestrians to clear that intersection’s crosswalks before turning right. Jerry Behl of the city’s transportation department said the plans for the new traffic light have been put on hold because the crosswalk appears to be effective.

Sprott Shaw has a new name, a new look and a new location in New Westminster. The private career college officially opened its new, bigger digs on the fourth floor of old land titles building at 88 Sixth St., near Royal Avenue on Wednesday. It’s 9,000 square feet, which is 2,000 more than at its old location on Eighth Avenue at 12th Street, which was highly visible to drivers on those streets but difficult to access for students without a vehicle. The new campus is a short walk from both the New Westminster and Columbia SkyTrain stations. “About a year ago we decided the location wasn’t optimal on Eighth Avenue because it wasn’t close to the SkyTrain stations. So that was a big factor in moving closer, probably the biggest,” said Sharon Stapleton, director of the New Westminster campus. Please see NEW, A3

PICKING THE PERFECT PUMPKIN MARIO BARTEL/NEWSLEADER

Picking through the pumpkin patch can wear a little guy like Johnathan Pickett, 3, out as he takes a break at the seventh annual pumpkin patch put on by realtor Derrick Thornhill at Queen’s Park on Saturday. About 1000 pumpkins of all sizes were laid out in the grass near the picnic shelter with proceeds going to Monarch Place. The event also included pumpkin carving, a costume contest, grab bags and the chance to guess the weight of a giant pumpkin.

New lab for LPN training continued from FRONT PAGE

It’s the first of the college’s outlets to incorporate the company’s new branding, which includes dropping “community” from its name, creation of a new logo and switching colours from black and red to blue, black and purple. New West will be the first to be decked out in those tones. “This is a complete new build out. Everything is brand new, all the furniture, all our labs have been updated and changed. It’s a brand new campus,” said Stapleton.

In her opinion, the biggest wow factor in the new digs is the training lab for licensed practical nurses. It simulates a hospital ward complete with beds, patients lists, oxygen and mannequins specifically made for students so they can practise doing injections, installing catheters and other nursing procedures. The lab also has a teaching area with stateof-the-art visual equipment so the students know all the details of the anatomy they’re dealing with when doing those procedures. The early education

program will be a combined lab and classroom so the students can learn how to do things like make healthy snacks for the kids, do creative arts and storytelling. “We’re proud of how that works and is functional for teaching the students,” said Stapleton. Sprott Shaw’s New West campus offers 10 to 15 programs with around 20 teaching staff, mostly part-time, and 130 students with the capability of accommodating more than 200.

Consultant will review school district’s books

IN ER N T B E G RD ! I W TS 3 TH N R E O M BE RK MA OVEM ICE A N TW W O N

Grant Granger

ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

New Westminster school district is going ahead with hiring a consultant to figure out why it has a $2.8 million deficit for 2011-12, and develop a plan to erase the shortfall to present to the Ministry of Education. In an announcement at Tuesday’s board of education meeting, chair James Janzen released a statement saying the consultant would also make recommendations on improving the district’s financial management. The ministry had given the district until the end of the month to develop a business plan to eliminate the deficit. The board won’t meet again before the deadline. Tuesday’s in-camera decision was accompanied by a statement that also outlined previously announced restrictions on overtime and hiring, and senior administration review. Trustee Casey Cook said the district and board will need time to work out the details of a recovery plan.

“Retiring a deficit of that magnitude you’re looking at a three- to five-year process. That’s what we have to present to the ministry, and we’ll see where we go with it,” said Cook, who welcomed the decision to hire a consultant. “I’m in favour of third-party oversight on the issue. It’s a direction we had to go, and I’m hoping it’s a process that at the conclusion will make several recommendations in terms of process and organizational structure.” The deficit is the third the district has experienced in the last 11 years, and the consultant will also be the third it has hired. “It’s the will of the board to hire a consultant. I hear the concerns of the community that we have hired consultants in the past, and they don’t know which we followed and which we didn’t. I hope this occasion is different,” said trustee MaryAnn Mortensen, who is in her first year on the board. District parent advisory council president Rob Peregoodoff said parents

were expecting more from the board Tuesday. He said the consultant’s hiring increases the expectation of disclosure and transparency, and noted no timeline came with the board’s action. “That was quite disappointing,” said Peregoodoff. “What that means is many stakeholders are going to be spending time monitoring the situation instead of the job at hand which is pursuing excellence in education. The longer this cloud hangs over us the worse it gets. However, they do need to make sure they get it right, because there is no next time. This is the next time.” He is also disappointed with the silence from the ministry. “We assume they are monitoring the situation. Unfortunately I have heard nothing at all from the ministry about this, and that’s disconcerting. Parents and media should not be the only ones monitoring the situation,” said Peregoodoff. twitter.com/lonegrangerbnw

No naming rights for civic centre City to explore corporate sponsorship opportunities for inside the facility Grant Granger

ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

While city council is willing to develop sponsorship deals in the new civic centre, it’s hands-off the name. A city staff report came to council Monday looking for direction on what types of corporate sponsorship to pursue. They gave the go-ahead to go after many types inside the building but nixed the idea of selling naming rights to the facility. Before the meeting, Coun. Jonathan Coté said the facility is too important to the city, and it is too tied to the identity of the city to have a corporate connection. “It would take away from the brand, and from what the facility is all about which is about being the cultural hub,” said Coté. Parks, recreation and culture director Dean Gibson, who wrote the report, said exploring

corporate sponsorship for the civic centre is a topic his department has been kicking around lately after a recent workshop. “In all the range of things we’ve been discussing about the civic centre even when the idea was conceived many, many years ago, one of the themes that was discussed was revenue generation beyond our traditional means to recoup some of the expenses,” said Gibson. “Do we want to go down a path to explore this notion of sponsorship? And if we do, we’ve got some work to do with it.” There are other, more modest means of corporate sponsorship besides the naming rights the city could pursue aggressively, said Gibson. What’s unknown is how residents feel about commercialism in the public domain. Surveys done by the city in the past show residents are generally supportive, while those who are opposed to the concept are “very opposed,” said Coté. “There is still a significant sector of the

to be the best father, husband and son I can be.

population that has strong feelings about it.” Gibson said sponsorship is a very different animal than it was just 15 or 20 years ago. It’s not just a sign board filled with business ads on a wall in a hockey rink. He said the civic centre is a test case that could help establish best practices for sponsorships at other facilities in the city, or for future projects like redevelopment of the Canada Games Pool.

Company named top employer New Westminster-based Westminster Savings has been named one of Canada’s top 50 employers in a survey done by Aon Hewitt, a global human resources consulting firm. It was the first time the company has reached the ranking from a survey conducted of employees across Canada. “It is a tribute to our team of more than 400 passionate and dedicated employees,” said the credit union’s president and CEO Barry Forbes in a press release.

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

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

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.

COMMENT

EMAIL letters@newwestnewsleader.com

Schools, staff strong despite dysfunctional board For better or for worse, the New Westminster School District operates ... “as directed by the board.” Currently, the most pressing issue facing the board is a sizeable surprise deficit and yet discussion is now starting to focus on the hiring of a communications expert. To be clear, I fully support a complete restructuring of school district “communication.” It’s a laudable objective, but make no mistake, to make it happen will require a comprehensive shift away from current practices, and that depends entirely on “political will” because information is empowering. My only concern is that the board’s attention will focus more on the new hire than on the $2.8M deficit. Ideally, I would like to see what could be achieved if district finances, governance and communications were all in good order. At this point, I can’t help but look back to about 12 years ago (May 2000) when the New Westminster school district was reported to be in a deficit

situation, “the first one ever”; my son’s special education assistant was issued a layoff notice and it was the first time I’d heard the now-common mantra about the “underfunding of education.” The following November, I ran and was elected to the board. Having been a parent for 22 years, and an elected trustee for 12, I can tell you that the underfunding of education is historic to all provincial governments but ultimately, the responsibility for the district’s finance problems lies with the Board of Education. The board of seven trustees acts as a single entity (majority rule) and the decisions that trustees make at the board table determine how the Ministry of Education dollars are spent at the local level; this, in turn, determines whether a balanced budget is achieved, or not. Some trustees have come and gone, but right now, Michael Ewen, James Janzen and myself are the veterans on the board and can fully attest to the fact that for a long time, the consequences

of financial and governance struggles have persisted with little relief for staff and students. That said, it is equally as important to note that there have also always been many incredibly positive things happening in the district. Through the years, board challenges have ranged from trustee-collegiality-andeffectiveness to the asbestos crisis; to grade configurations for the middle school model; to governance mismanagement (the Royal City Education Foundation and SD40 Business Company), and deficit-recovery processes; not to mention the many issues hampering the construction and replacement of schools, etc.—and these adversities have been significant. To state the obvious, if the new board priority is to achieve positive press, simply put, the best way to generate “good news” is to stop generating “bad news.” Typically, in the past, the board response to its various problematic issues has always been to hire consultants

to provide direction and recommendations for resolution of those problems. Currently, as reported, yes, there are ongoing discussions about hiring yet another consultant to address the current deficit. In my experience, the most effective district intervention was conducted by the Auditor General’s office solely because with the A-G there is an expectation of compliance that doesn’t exist with hired private consultants. The district’s current deficit status would be best served by another A-G intervention.  The reality is that every choice made at the board table has had corresponding consequences at the local level, consequences that have affected staff and students, and by extension, families alike. We all are all too familiar with print, radio and television media coverage of frustrated parents and demoralized staff and yet thankfully, the poor physical condition of our schools, the rounds of cuts to staff and supplies, etc. hasn’t adversely impacted our student

achievement stats. Personally, I think that speaks volumes for the quality and dedication of our New Westminster school district staff ... teachers, SEAs, support staff, ... the whole lot, but I worry about how much longer these good people can continue to “carry” a dysfunctional board. Perhaps at this juncture, we will be able to start to turn this district’s problems around. Lisa Graham School trustee

EFry ‘rapid-rush’ process fed frustration Council approves rezoning despite residents’ loud objections at hearing

change the Official Community Plan for the properties from single-family to institutional to allow it to apply for rezoning. McIntosh was the only councillor to vote against the rezoning Monday. McIntosh said there were steps missed along the way. Residents have objected to the city not requiring EFry to present the proposal to the local residents association or submit the plans to the city’s advisory planning commission. “By facilitating a rapid-rush process it just fed into the (neighbourhood’s) frustration,” said McIntosh on Wednesday. McIntosh said the neighbourhood’s message that approving the application would signal an erosion of their single family neighbourhood was loud and clear, but council didn’t hear it. She was particularly concerned about a parking

Know who you’re paying. That’s the advice from the Better Business Bureau which is warning small businesses of invoice scams that try to extract payment for services that have never been provided. “Businesses often have staff who are parttime or handle multiple roles, a vulnerability that bogus invoicing schemes try to exploit,” said Danielle Primrose, the president and CEO of the BBB for the Lower Mainland, in a release. These “pretender schemes,” as the BBB calls them, often reference services as if they were a previous supplier or vendor. To avoid getting trapped in such a scheme, the BBB advises: • Train your staff. Advise employees who aren’t authorized to order supplies and services to refer sales people to those who are authorized. • Get sales pitches in writing. • Document purchases by issuing purchase orders to the supplier, including a number and authorized signature. The handling of all invoices should be centralized. • Keep a list of regular vendors. • If you receive bills for services or supplies you didn’t order, don’t pay. Under Canadian law it is illegal to bill for services that haven’t been provided, or to ask you to return unordered merchandise. Send a letter to the company to notify them that you’re keeping their product as a gift unless they agree to cover the cost of returning it. newsroom@newwestnewsleader.com

Nominees named for Platinum Awards The New Westminster Chamber of Commerce has announced nominees for the Platinum Awards to be held Nov. 15. The Platinum Awards celebrate business and community excellence in New Westminster. They recognize businesses and individuals whose achievements and contributions to the community distinguish them from their peers. In the past, the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce has presented two separate event evenings recognizing this excellence in our community. These events in the past were known as COBE (Celebration of Business Excellence) and Citizen of The Year/Bernie Legge Cultural Award. This year, a task force of chamber volunteers has assembled to deliver one gala celebration in New Westminster. “We are thrilled with the response to the Platinum Awards,” said chamber president Andrew Hopkins. “Our nominees have expressed their appreciation in how we are acknowledging their excellence and contributions in our business community.”

Protesters denounce pipeline expansion Tom Fletcher

tfletcher@blackpress.ca

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 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. Other speakers included federal Green Party leader Elizabeth May and B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Susan Lambert. Maude Barlow, national chair of the Council of Canadians, called for opposition to gas pipelines and liquefied natural gas exports from norhern B.C. as well. Supporters of the oil sands protest include SFU professor Mark Jaccard and former UN ambassador Stephen Lewis.

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.

Transit fare evasion losses doubled over last decade $14.5m lost to cheats ‘distraction’ from TransLink’s big picture Jeff Nagel

jnagel@blackpress.ca

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 recent provincial

audit of TransLink found fare evasion across the entire system rose 120 per cent from an estimated $6.6 million in losses in 2001 to $14.5 million last year. That’s less dramatic than it sounds – factor in a 21 per cent increase in ridership and a 65 per cent fare price increase since 2001 and losses should account for more than $13 million by now if the same proportion of riders cheat. MacLeod said the problem is most prevalent on Vancouver routes. Drivers are told not to risk a beating by arguing with fare cheats or delaying other passengers but 165 drivers a year are still assaulted each year, often due to fare payment disputes. MacLeod said Transit Police have stepped up patrols on buses and are committing to do more yet, particularly after

SkyTrain fare gates and smart cards are 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: - The 11 per cent fare increase in 2010 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. The Toronto Transit Commission estimates fare evasion at about two per cent, or $20 million a year. 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 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.”

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

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.

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.”

Burnaby says New West a ‘natural’ partner for policing Eyeing alternatives to RCMP Wanda Chow

wchow@burnabynewsleader.com

Burnaby is continuing to look at policing alternatives to the RCMP after being forced by the province to sign what it considered a less-thanpalatable 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-year-old 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. “I also think, to be honest, it’s an effort to try to get the RCMP to understand how dissatisifed we are with the way the relationship has operated between us, the provincial government and Ottawa.” Corrigan stressed that the cities have great relationships at the detachment level. “Where we have problems, where we have the disconnect is with Ottawa and the fact they are constantly dictating edicts to the municipalities and to their own departments that cause us a lot of expense and concern. And that often they’re done without any notice and without any consideration of the impact on local budgets.” He cited as an example the new $1.2-billion RCMP

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.

have your own little piece of the outdoors. 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. For more information, visit www.bluetreehomes. ca or call 604-939-8874. The Bluetree Home Store is located at 1020 Austin Ave. beside Cyclone Taylor Sports and is open between 12 and 5 p.m. every day.

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.
