Company seeks to ease transit woes 21¯ MONTH
No bus service to growing Big Bend industrial area east of Byrne Road Wanda Chow
Times are tough and jobs can be scarce, so when a lack of transit options makes it hard for a Burnaby company to hire staff, it must be bad. Alpha Technologies, located in a neighbourhood of industrial parks in South Burnaby, is always hiring, says one of its custodians, Ranjan Ranasuriya.
“When I ask my friends if they’d like to come to my workplace, they ask me about the transit system,” Ranasuriya, 61, said. “When I tell them, they say, ‘no, no, no.’ ” The lack of transit service has made hiring a challenge since Alpha Technologies consolidated several locations into its current headquarters on Riverfront Gate three years ago, said its chief marketing officer Dave Boroevich. After losing some staff because of the move, it has continued to deal with turnover, with about 20

After 13 years the Edmonds Business and Community Association is in need of new people, ideas and direction to keep it going, says a former president, Joyce Rostron. There was no annual general meeting held after the previous board’s term ended last spring, said Rostron, whose term as president ended in 2010. It’s being held together by a skeleton board of directors. “It’s in a slump right now ... It’s inactive but it’s not dissolved or anything.” When it looked like the organization was going to fold, she helped organize a meeting of members last November where they decided to find out what the community needs and wants. The result is an Edmonds town hall meeting Feb. 12 at Edmonds Community School. Staff from Burnaby’s city hall will speak on the plans for the neighbourhood and the Edmonds Community Centre and Pool that’s opening soon. Please see FOruM, a8

Now that the weather has turned frosty, the chill nipping at our noses, what would go down better than a big bowl of... ice cream? “It’s cream and sugar. How can you say no to that any time of year?” said Karin Hung of blog 52scoops.com. Hung, a planner at Burnaby city hall, will be leading a workshop on making ice cream at the Tommy Douglas library branch on Tuesday, Jan. 29 at 6 p.m. She’ll be drawing on her experience with the blog, in which she writes about her quest to develop 52 artisan ice cream recipes, one for each week of the year. Currently on week No. 45, Hung’s recipes have ranged from apple pie and beet-andorange ice cream, to Hungarian chestnut and sweet potato-andKahlua varieties. An admitted foodie, the Vancouver resident has always loved cooking and ice cream and started experimenting after she bought her own ice cream maker. She started out
anything. Her recipes always use local, in-season ingredients. Peas and mint ice cream in the spring anyone? Or for something different, how about maple chocolate bacon ice cream? Friends, family and co-workers have even started giving her items to incorporate. Her boss, for instance, appears to have a tropical “microclimate” in his office and backyard which produced the Meyer lemons and Calamondin oranges (similar to a kumquat) she worked into recipes last March. After she and her official taster, her husband, taste the end product, Hung says she’ll often give the rest to whoever donated the ingredients in the first place. As for why go to the trouble of making your own, Hung said that commercial products are often full of cheap alternatives to natural ingredients. “Instead of using real cream, real milk, real eggs, it’s full of oils, chemicals and additives. I think really that’s the key message, you know exactly what’s going into your food.” Quality ice cream is also much cheaper to make yourself,
$2 or $3 per litre compared to $8 to $9 per pint for gourmet brands using similar ingredients. “It’s very easy. It’s four base ingredients. You can cook a custard in like, 10 minutes ... It takes less than 10 minutes to churn it.” Then all that’s left is the freezing time. Hung has had the occasional recipe that didn’t turn out a winner. An egg-free, dairy-free version of her caramelized pineapple ice cream ended up with a texture that wasn’t as smooth and creamy as a typical recipe, “and it had a bit of chewiness to it.” And what has Hung learned from the past 10 months of her blog? “I’ve learned you really need to kick up the exercise,” she said with a laugh. “We’re making ice cream once a week, we’re definitely eating more treats than you normally might, than I normally might.” • Karin Hung’s Ice Cream Making workshop is at the Tommy Douglas library branch, 7311 Kingsway, Burnaby on Tuesday, Jan. 29, 6 to 7:15 p.m. She’ll demonstrate how to make it both with a machine and by hand.

As a result, Alpha Technologies and Burnaby Board of Trade are co-hosting a â€œtransit solutions forumâ€? on Jan. 30 at 4 p.m. Area businesses are invited to send representatives to discuss their transit needs and TransLink officials will be in attendance. Boroevich said of the 450 employees at Alpha, which manufactures power solutions for the telecom and cable sectors, about 15 cycle to work, and several carpool, but many drive single-occupancy vehicles because parking is available on the street. However, once the area gets built out, that parking will become scarcer. But he noted that many of the jobs in the area are in the manufacturing and warehouse fields which donâ€™t pay that much, making car ownership a challenge for some, never mind the environmental concerns of people driving to work. Ranasuriya said it takes him about 80 minutes to get to work from his home in North Delta, a commute that includes a bus, a SkyTrain ride, another bus, and the walk from Byrne Road, which takes him 20 to 30 minutes. If he misses a bus, itâ€™s another 30 minutes on top of that, he said. Similarly, Stephen Galloway, 41, who works as a shipper with the company, says it takes him about an hour to get to work from east Vancouver, a commute of two buses and the 1.2-km walk. But they have it easy compared to the afternoon shift, which ends at 11:30 p.m., after bus service to the area ends for the day, which makes women reluctant to take on that shift, Ranasuriya noted. For those employees, they have to arrange carpools or rides to the closest SkyTrain station to get home at night. TransLink spokesman Drew Snider said the transportation authority will send representatives to listen to the concerns, but stressed that â€œit all depends on budget ... and our ability to expand transit service anywhere.â€? Snider suggested its Travel Smart program, which helps companies set up alternatives such as carpools and vanpools, might be the most realistic option. He acknowledged the Big Bend industrial area is growing. â€œThatâ€™s something we have to keep an eye on but right now weâ€™re under some severe constraints and what we have to do is work within that framework to find more efficiencies and increase transit service where we can address those crowding issues,â€? Snider said. â€œBut itâ€™s got to be balanced off with what areas are being underutilized. Thatâ€™s the challenge thatâ€™s in front of us right now.â€? For more information on the transit solutions forum, contact Cory Redekop at email@example.com or 604-412-0100.

The City of Burnaby plans to spend $75,000 this year for planning into what Burnaby Lake Sports Complex could look like in the future. The money would pay for a conceptual plan for the sports complex in the Central Valley, to determine possible future locations for a replacement pool and arena, covered sports box, future cricket pitch and trails and walkways. Another $50,000 is proposed for a conceptual design of the covered sports box. This work is among the $1.5 million in capital projects being proposed by the city’s parks and recreation department, according to a city staff report. A $50,000 review of how to make Barnet Marine Park easier to get to is also on the priority list for funding. The review will look at parking and vehicle access, and develop a conceptual design for the Barnet Beach entrance at the CP Rail crossing to include wheelchair accessibility, routes for emergency vehicles and a
public drop-off zone. Eileen Dailly Pool would receive $200,000 to complete upgrades to its water disinfection system to help meet recently changed water quality standards. Burnaby Mountain Golf Course would see $140,000 for a new irrigation system pump station and the first phase of this year’s drainage and irrigation improvements. Riverway Golf Course would receive $165,000 for renovations, construction and landscaping upgrades, including improvements to sand traps and tees, as well as upgrades to ball distribution equipment at the driving range. Burnaby Mountain Park is earmarked for trail work including safety improvements, slope grading, and the extension and widening of existing trails ($200,000) while $100,000 of work will also be done to the 236 km trail and walkway system in city parks including safety railings on steep grades and washout reconstruction. Playgrounds at Forest Glen and Suncrest parks will be
replaced at a cost of $160,000 due to wood preservative and lead paint on the existing equipment that was installed more than 20 years ago. Several parking lots and entrance roads at parks properties will have new drainage, paving and lighting installed, including those at Robert Burnaby Pool, Confederation park along Beta Avenue and Bonsor Recreation Complex ($225,000). Burnaby Lake Sports Complex Older picnic tables will be replaced with concrete tables to reduce vandalism, graffiti and the potential for fire from barbecue use, at Barnet Beach, Central Park and Fraser Foreshore Park ($95,000). And $100,000 will be spent on improvements at Squint Lake, Cariboo and Graham parks to reduce water consumption on sports fields, and at washrooms and drinking fountains. The $1.7 million (including HST) still needs to be approved by council before the projects can go ahead. twitter.com/WandaChow

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
A noble new law
We applaud the family of Kimberly Proctor for standing up for change, knowing that doing so would thrust the tragic and painful case of their daughter’s murder back into the spotlight. We are reminded of the efforts of Grant De Patie’s parents. Their lobbying for new regulations to protect late-night service station workers, prompted by their son’s death in 2005 as he tried to stop a gasoline thief in Maple Ridge, led to Grant’s Law, which ultimately mandated pre-payment for gas transactions. Kimberly’s Law calls for a cluster of proposals, including changes to the federal Young Offender’s Act and a national strategy to single out youth with possible violent tendencies and steer them toward support. Some of the lawyer-reviewed proposals have merit, such as the creation of specific protocols that would allow schools to more quickly identify individuals who show potential for threatening or dangerous behaviour. Others seem unenforceable, such as making parents financially responsible for the human damages caused by their children, in cases of murders committed by youth. Civil court already provides a venue to dispute instances of personal loss. Not only that, the creation of a blanket law for financial liability – even in murder cases – ignores the legal tenet that says every case must be heard on its merits. While another proposal, the bumping up of youth to adult court for both murder trials and sentencing, makes sense, it would not jive with the financial liability request. How can we make parents responsible for the actions of their “adult” children? Kimberly’s Law involves many jurisdictions and authorities. The chances of it proceeding as written are very slim indeed. It takes time to hammer out the best workable solution – Black Press.

Smart meter deniers’ last stand VICTORIA – The news was trumpeted with alarm here on Vancouver Island, which along with the Gulf Islands is the heartland of tinfoil-hat opposition to smart meters. Of the 140,000 power customers who didn’t have a wireless meter by the end of the year, many have simply refused. Now BC Hydro has sent letters informing them “we can no longer delay the installation of a new meter at your home.” “StopSmartMetersBC” sent out a panicky e-mail advising its resistance movement to brace against “storm trooper tactics” from BC Hydro staff, and urging phone and fax attacks on their local MLA office. “Anger and outrage should be expressed, in a quiet way, so that we don’t sound hysterical, but people are being threatened, police called, etc.,” the anonymous e-mail helpfully suggests. BC Hydro has also confirmed what I told you a few months ago. Those bogus locks, chicken wire cages and importantlooking signs, which were sold like modern-day snake oil, have no legal effect to prevent the

utility from working on its own equipment. These obstacles to inspection have been and continue to be removed, along with dangerous grow-op bypasses and fiddled mechanical meters. The technical arguments against wireless meters have been demolished. False news reports and website claims still circulate, but no fires have been attributed to the installation of 1.7 million wireless meters in B.C. About 1,200 faulty meter bases have also been replaced at BC Hydro’s expense, and as crude power-theft bypasses have been removed, the incidence of electrical fires, already rare, has dropped substantially. Another popular myth is increased electricity bills. Yes, if your bypass is removed, your bill will go up. Like gas pumps, power meters are required by federal law to be accurate.

Which brings us back to Team Tinfoil, which has been sold a cascading series of fantastic tales about the effect of wireless signals that are already ever-present in all modern communities. A Toronto-based expert group called Bad Science Watch has tackled claims of “electromagnetic hypersensitivity” head-on. I highly recommend their 10-page report and qualifications at www. badsciencewatch.ca. In plain language, with references to the best available scientific studies, it describes the double-blind tests that prove people who claim this sensitivity are not actually able to detect when they are or are not being exposed to wireless signals. No X-Men candidates have come forward. It also exposes key “activists” in Canada. The most prominent is Dr. Magda Havas, an associate professor at Trent University who has “developed a career denouncing the safety of lowfrequency electromagnetic radiation.” She gives speeches, promotes her book and has worked with one David Stetzer to
promote an “EMF filter” to sell to those who insist they feel what science shows they don’t. Havas has appeared on TV “news” shows with “activistentrepreneur” Kevin Byrne. His website appears to be a hub of cell tower and smart meter scare reports, but it’s interspersed with product pitches for EMF Solutions Canada, of which Byrne is coincidentally president. Then there’s “entrepreneuractivist” Rob Metzinger, president of something called Safe Living Technologies Inc. He doesn’t run a lurid scare website, but he’s appeared on CBC and CTV as some sort of authority. (The main hazard emanating from TVs these days is bad information.) As the election approaches, a fight is gearing up between the NDP and the B.C. Green Party for the ignorant, superstitious and angry vote. The Greens in particular have damaged their credibility in a desperate bid to quiet their own tinfoil-chapeau wing. There are bozo eruptions ahead. I’ll have more on that in a future column.

BC Liberals failing local film industry As someone who has worked in the B.C. film industry for over 40 years, I am appalled to see the lack of support from the BC Liberals. I remember when the first big productions came to Vancouver in the late 1960s, at that time their were only a handful of local B.C. members employed. The rest were from the U.S. and elsewhere. Through patience and support this industry grew from those handful of people to an industry employing over 25,000, and about 90 per cent are all locals. It was the third largest film production centre in North America, after Los Angeles (1) and New York. Until recently. Producers from the United States and other countries love B.C. for their film productions—we have the locations, we are only
two and a half hours from Los Angeles by plane, and we have the professional film techs with the knowledge to get the job done, along with the best studio facilities. But with the economy such as it is, they are forced to go elsewhere. Film gradually became a $2 billion industry in B.C., with people employed paying taxes. It has helped local businesses to grow. Throughout the years it took a lot of effort to build this industry to where it was, thanks to the people involved, that is until the BC Liberals came in to power. Millions were invested in local studios like Bridge Studios in Burnaby, North Shore Studios, Vancouver Studios, and many more. These people have invested their time, money, hearts and confidence to be
the success it’s been until recently. In the past all provincial governments supported this industry, as the revenues more than offset the tax breaks given. The BC Liberals talk about creating jobs, but where are they? Cody Tabois Burnaby
ENTITLEMENT A BADGE OF HONOUR Those supporting the ‘Idle No More’ movement are wearing their culture of entitlement like a badge of honour. It has no legs because participants do not understand that any time you receive something without having worked for it someone else worked for it without getting compensated. Corrupt chiefs will never admit this, because there are too many pinheads,
void of common sense, who will always vote for the person who makes the wildest promises, promises that cannot be kept, but, what’s more, they were never intended to be kept! Ziggy Eckardt Burnaby
LEGALIZED SUITES LONG OVERDUE Re: Burnaby City Hall may legalize secondary suites (NewsLeader, Jan. 16) There are at least 10,000 nonconforming (illegal) suites in Burnaby. The city knows this and has chosen to ignore the problem. Their unwritten policy is to investigate only upon receipt of a complaint and enforce only when forced to. This is unacceptable. Strict enforcement would result in large numbers of people being forced from their homes. Ignoring the law results
in disrespect for authority. Both alternatives are unacceptable. Secondary suites should have been legalized long ago. This has happened in most, if not all of the surrounding cities so there are good precedents for how to implement such a policy. Garth Evans Burnaby
IS THE LITTLE GUY GETTING SQUEEZED? First Kinder Morgan announces plans to triple its Trans Mountain pipeline to carry even more heavy tar sands crude. In fact, it has commitments to pipe so much heavy crude that the Chevron Refinery in Burnaby says there may not be “room” for the delivery of conventional crude for
domestic purposes. A case of the little guy getting squeezed out? And now the big guys are about to duke it out. Tar sands giant Suncor is leading a challenge to Kinder Morgan’s proposed toll rate (the amount charged per barrel for piping the oil to the Burnaby terminal) application, complaining it is far above the normal standard.

While monetary donations are always welcome, it’s also looking for endorsements, said Wanda Mulholland, its community development coordinator. “We have a solid base of support throughout Burnaby and we know that we will need to expand and solidify that base of support if we’re going to successfully move forward on housing and expanded services for people,” Mulholland said. Many people donate money, food and clothing to assist Burnaby’s homeless. Endorsing the task force’s work is another way people can help “and show Burnaby citizens want to be assisting our neighbours who are poor,” she said.
Individuals, organizations and community leaders are being asked to visit www. burnabyhomelesstaskforce. org and provide a written endorsement (participants’ contact information will not be made public on the site). Already almost 100 people and groups have indicated their support. Mulholland said it’s important for people to see who else is interested in and supportive of local efforts to aid people who are homeless. “It provides a base for the task force also to be able to say, ‘here’s some people that are working with us and supporting us.’” Among the benefits is being able to show community support when lobbying government for services and housing for people who are homeless.
The task force was formed in January 2005 and is made up of representatives from all levels of government, Fraser Health Authority, Burnaby RCMP, as well as local businesses, Burnaby Board of Trade, community organizations, local churches and concerned citizens. Before that, Mulholland said, many people didn’t know there were homeless people in Burnaby. Since then, “a large majority of people are beginning to really understand there’s an issue here in Burnaby like everywhere else in the Lower Mainland,” she said. With acknowledgement of the concern, the next step is to give people the chance to show support for the work of the task force and move forward on continuing and expanding services. twitter.com/WandaChow

It’s a new year, and now it’s time for a new lifestyle. Black Press has partnered with Kin’s Farm Market to launch the Green Fighters Challenge in 13 communities in the Lower Mainland, which will follow participants over several months as they change their life and get healthy.

Canadian Tire will provide prizes for readers as well as the challengers as part of their commitment to healthy living, and you are encouraged to check out the Green Fighters website to follow the participants’ progress and share your thoughts about how you are eating better and getting fit yourself for 2013.

Ben Duenas has made it a New Year’s resolution to get more regular exercise.
Fighters site will regularly include recipes, special offers and tips for making a change, whether it’s to your diet or fitness level. 2013 is shaping up to be a year of change for UBC student Ben Duenas. After spending most of his days during the last few years in a classroom, the chemical engineering student is looking to make some changes in his life. “While going to school full time, I didn’t have time to exercise,” said Duenas. “I’ve made it my New Year’s resolution to get out there and try new things.” The 23-year-old, who was cooling down after a short workout at Bear Creek Park in Surrey, also wants to rev up his social life. “I’ve been sitting in class far too long, so I just signed up for jiu-jitsu (a Japanese martial art) and ballroom dancing,” Duenas said. “I hope to meet new people outside the classroom.” For Sukhmani Pannu, also 23, getting in shape and staying in shape has become her goal for this year. She has already made some changes to the way she eats. “I found that I used to have a meal around 6:30 or 7 p.m. every night, but now I eat earlier, around 5 p.m. and then have a small salad.” The strategy seems
to be working, Pannu said, as she’s already dropped 20 pounds. A recent poll of Lower Mainland residents, however, shows Duenas and Pannu may be in the minority. Results of an Ipsos Reid survey (commissioned by Fitness Town Surrey) released last month indicate just 14 per cent of people
actually made New Year’s fitness-related resolutions last year. And of those who did, about two-thirds stuck to them. Those who abandoned their healthy plans listed lack of motivation, laziness, and lack of time as their top reasons for abandoning their good intentions. see moSt PEoPlE, a11

SPORTS Santorelli switches Swedish squads
Mark Santorelli of Burnaby has signed to play with Vasteras after being released by another Swedish team, Tingsryd where he had scored four goals and nine assists in 34 games. Santorelli, who was the captain in Tingsryd, will be reunited with former Tingsryd head coach, Joakim Fagervall. He scored 11 goals and 35 SANTORELLI points in 48 games last year, his first in Europe after four years in the Nashville organization. The Predators picked him in the fourth round of the 2007 NHL entry draft. He led the Western Hockey League in scoring with 101 points in 2007-08. The Burnaby Winter Club product was also on the Canadian junior A champion Burnaby Express squad of 2005-06. Santorelli’s older brother Mike was placed on waivers by the Florida Panthers last week, but still made the NHL club. He played more than 13 minutes in Saturday’s season opening 5-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes, although he picked up no points and was a minus-1. Mike Santorelli was a sixth round selection of the Predators in 2004, and has played 175 NHL games for Nashville and Florida scoring 31 goals and 55 points.

When asked what would motivate them to continue with keep-fit resolutions, survey respondents said having more time would help, as would personal support from a trainer or nutritionist, or having someone to work out with.

The cables that hold up the new Port Mann Bridge will be outfitted with devices to clear snow buildup and prevent a repeat of the falling ‘ice bombs’ incident that terrorized motorists late last year. The custom snow sweepers are two feet long and consist of a
and dropped back down to clear snow when required. “It clears off all the snow in a gradual manner, which was intended in the first place,” she said. Later, they’ll be positioned at the top of cables and then dropped down and back up by remote control when needed. “The initial solution may not be that elegant,” Polak said. “But we wanted to make sure we have
a solution for the public.” More than 250 vehicles were reported damaged Dec. 19 by ice that fell from the bridge’s cables, which cross overtop of traffic lanes unlike the ones on other local suspension bridges. Polak said the sweepers are just one of the preventative solutions engineers are testing to ensure bridge users are safe from falling snow and ice. Four hydrophobic
silicon-based coatings are being tested to determine which performs best. The intent is to coat all the cables this summer and make snow or ice more likely to slide off. A de-icing solution has also been found that can be sprayed on the bridge cables, although Polak referred to it as more of a “last resort” as it likely means a planned closure of some lanes. The cable sweepers
T H E M AYA N S W E R E SO WRONG
are being tested at Cypress Bowl and engineers say they should glide smoothly along each cable without damaging the cable sheath. They’re to be used as soon as snow starts to fall and ongoing inspections will gauge how soon cables must be brushed again. Polak was unable to provide a cost estimate, but maintained the bridge contractor will pay the entire bill, not taxpayers. Polak praised contractor Kiewit/ Flatiron for their
“astonishing effort” in working to quickly find a fix. “They have put their top people on this – it’s been all hands on deck.” The so-called ice bombs incident was a major black eye for the new toll bridge, centrepiece of the new $3.3-billion Port Mann Highway 1 project, just weeks after it officially opened. Inadequate de-icing of the bridge deck was also blamed for a subsequent 40-vehicle crash Jan. 3. twitter.com/jeffnagel
