On a Vancouver street sits a cherry blossom tree so rare it’s not even mentioned in most Japanese books on the subject. “When I came across it I was completely floored,” said Douglas Justice, associate director and curator of the University of British Columbia Botanical Garden. As far as anyone knows, there is

only one example of the Ichiharatora-no-o or “tiger tail” variety in the city and it might have actually been smuggled into the country from its native Japan, said Justice. As cherry blossom trees have a tendency to accumulate plant diseases, they’re almost impossible to import due to strict government regulations making it all the more crucial that the region’s existing trees are preserved for future generations. That’s where Burnaby’s B.C. Institute of Technology comes in. In the fall of 2011, Justice

contacted Keith Turner, an instructor in BCIT’s biotechnology department, and asked for the school’s help in propagating the rarest local varieties at its lab facilities. Cherry blossom trees are found across North America but few places as heavily planted as in the Lower Mainland, with roughly 40,000 in Vancouver alone representing more than 55 different types, said Justice.

Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan will be writing to the Royal Bank (RBC), the city’s banker, strongly expressing concern about the company’s use of temporary foreign workers. Earlier this week, news reports stated the bank had outsourced work to a contractor, causing the layoffs of dozens of the bank’s Canadian employees. The contractor in turn hired temporary foreign workers to do the work. Coun. Dan Johnston, who made the letter motion, said he was “shocked” by the news. “RBC, the largest bank in Canada, one of largest banks in the world, and the city’s banker, should be operating better than that,” Johnston said. “We should be sending them a letter showing our displeasure with this.” Coun. Sav Dhaliwal supported the motion but stressed that the real issue is not with the bank but with the federal government’s temporary foreign worker program which he called “a sham.” Please see THEY, A3

Doing it because ‘we love cheery trees’ Public to

have say on suites

from FRONT PAGE

With most of the trees aging— the earliest were presented in the early 1930s as gifts from Japan to commemorate Japanese-Canadians who fought in the First World War—many are moribund and in need of preservation. The City of Vancouver gave Justice permission to take material from the trees located on city property and from the shoot tips recovered, BCIT’s Turner and his students are using the baby leaves hidden inside the buds to grow new material in test tubes. The propagation process is decades-old, but students in BCIT’s bachelor of science, honours in biotechnology program have been “extremely keen” to participate, said Turner. In addition to being able to give back to the community, the familiar and popular cherry blossom is something “they can

relate to probably more than anything else.” So far, seven varieties have been grown in-vitro and after about two years in the lab they’ll be given to Justice who will use them

in research at the UBC Botanical Garden while they continue to grow. He said it will likely be more than 10 years before any of the material translates into new trees

on city streets as a result of the collaborative effort. “Nobody is going to profit from this. We’re doing it because we love cherry trees.” twitter.com/WandaChow

‘They weren’t even getting minimum wage’ ⫸

continued from FRONT PAGE

Instead of being a source of labour for jobs that Canadians can’t fill, the program has simply become a way for companies to cut costs, Dhaliwal said, noting foreign workers can legally be paid 15 per cent less than a Canadian would. In some regions such workers are even being brought in to staff Tim Horton’s restaurants, he said, and as soon as workers ask for benefits they are threatened with being sent back to their home countries. Such work should be given to genuine immigrants who settle here and spend money here,

Dhaliwal said. The temporary foreign workers who do come often end up being treated poorly, a number of councillors said. Those hired to help build the Canada Line were paid even less than the legal 15 per cent less, said Coun. Colleen Jordan. Those workers have been back home in Costa Rica for three years already and only recently settled out of court after the company fought their case demanding proper pay for years. Coun. Paul McDonell recounted a story of foreign workers hired to build the Golden Ears Bridge in Maple Ridge who were paid the legal rate but were

each charged $1,400 a month rent to live in an overcrowded company-supplied house. “They weren’t even getting minimum wage when they worked it out,” McDonell said, stressing it’s not the workers who are at fault. RBC earned more than $2 billion in its last quarter. “That’s not enough for a bank?” he said. Corrigan recalled that Filipino workers were brought in by a contractor to build tunnels for the Seymour water filtration plant and ended up almost confined to their homes unless they were working.

He said jobs are hard to come by for First Nations, immigrants, and young adults just out of school, but foreign workers are brought in. The federal government brings refugees to Canada “but when they arrive they end up spending years on social assistance while jobs go to foreign workers.” It’s a result of federal government policy and the efforts of corporate lobbyists, Corrigan said. “We see what’s going on and we’re calling you on it.”

Burnaby council has given approval in principle to a proposed program that would legalize secondary suites in the city. Currently, secondary suites are not allowed and all it takes for city bylaw inspectors to shut one down is a complaint to city hall from a neighbour. Mayor Derek Corrigan said at Monday’s council meeting that the program was one of the community requests that came out of the process that developed the city’s social sustainability strategy. Corrigan noted that the proposed program, which will now go to a public consultation process, includes additional protections to neighbours such as requiring absentee landlords to get business licences, giving the city the ability to ensure suites are operated properly. “We’re going to try to make it as easy as possible for people to legalize a suite,” he said, noting the city will offer inspections to let property owners know the feasibility of legalizing suites and bringing them up to code. Coun. Sav Dhaliwal called it a “win-win” situation for the city, citizens and homeowners as it will allow owners to ensure their suites are legal and safe and the city will be able to charge owners for the city services used by their tenants.

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:

Price of democracy A number of organizations and political parties are taking aim at the financing of political parties, citing the release last week of information about funds raised by the BC Liberals and the NDP. The Liberals raised about $10 million in 2012, with about half of that coming from businesses. The NDP raised about $7 million, with $1 million coming from businesses and another $1.6 million from unions. NDP leader Adrian Dix has agreed with Integrity B.C., an election watchdog group, the BC Conservative Party, the Green Party and independent MLAs that there should be a ban on donations from businesses and unions to political campaigns. This would bring B.C. into line with the federal government and most other provinces. Is this really best for democracy? Unions like the B.C. Teachers Federation have spent millions in advocacy ads over the years, and are doing so now. It is unlikely that any ban on donations would extend to advocacy ads, given that it would be unlikely to survive a court challenge. The Liberals, the latest version of the free enterprise coalition, get funds from many businesses, and the NDP (and the CCF before them) get funds from labour. What’s wrong with that? A limit on donations from an individual business or union to a party, and a law that would prevent that organization from making simultaneous donations to individual candidates to try to get around the limit, would be sufficient in  limiting the influence of any one donor. No one should be able to buy an election but businesses, unions, advocacy groups and individuals should be free to donate to political parties. Democracy is a battle of ideas, and getting ideas out into the public square requires money and effort. —Black Press

In Texas, if you can believe it, a Walmart has been turned into an award-winning public library. I know—books? It’s a topsy-turvy world. Here in B.C. most malls are still doing OK, though many malls across Canada are struggling, at least according to DeadMalls.com. But when things die, new life isn’t far behind. And this new life for dead malls is—and I’m talking as someone who drags his heels into a mall only when new underwear is mandatory—actually quite exciting.

It’s the people that give a mall any stitch of charm. Saturday at Metrotown, it’s the vibrant human tapestry we’re drawn to. But malls are changing. Soon, Burnaby’s Brentwood Town Centre, Vancouver’s Oakridge and not too far off another Burnaby mall, Lougheed, will be transformed. If they get the go-ahead, these malls will become true city centres as they re-shape our idea of the shopping centre.

At the core, these changes are driven by the concept called New Urbanism, which means building on a human scale, with emphasis on walkability, easy transit access, a mix of uses and reduced dependence on cars. The buzzwords are “placemaking” and the creation of “high streets,” which tap into our idea of main streets of yore, humming with people and shops, where it’s easy to meander. These new malls will still make space for cars, of course, but it’ll be all hush-hush, tucked away somewhere, so the overall feel is more friendly. Plans for Brentwood and Oakridge amount to a huge bonanza for the mall owners as a sea of wasted asphalt becomes home to residential and office towers, while retaining all the shops (and more) that are on the site today. Residents will win in this change, too. Instead of being giant boxes of canned air, few windows and

no clocks, these new malls offer a mix of everything. Places to live and work, places to shop and eat, places to just hang out—it’s a recipe for creating a real beating heart that’s active and engaging during all the waking hours. Oakridge will have a new seniors centre and library, and much of the old-fashioned mally stuff will be tucked beneath 16 acres of green space on the mall’s roof. It’s yet to be hammered out, but the Brentwood project will also deliver millions in cash or amenities to the city in exchange for the added density. Shape Properties has an approved master plan to stud the 28-acre site with 11 residential towers and two office buildings. The whole place will be transit and pedestrian friendly, with wide sidewalks (picture bistro tables), bike paths, park space and plenty of pedestrian-only pathways. Please see TYPICAL, A7

Seeking a safer ride through Big Bend Wanda Chow

A local cycling advocacy group is calling for the missing link to be built to complete a safe bike route between New Westminster and through Burnaby to South Vancouver. Andrew Feltham, chair of the New Westminster branch of HUB (formerly the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition), wrote

to Transportation Minister Mary Polak about the proposal, which was prompted by an exploratory ride last fall by cyclists from HUB. The proposed route would run from the Queensborough Bridge ramp that connects with the south side of Marine Way/Stewardson Way. From there, a widened shoulder separated from traffic by cement barriers could be built along Marine Way, allowing for two-way bicycle traffic. The path would end at the bottom of the hill, at the edge of the fence of the Southern Railway yards,

Re: Subsidized daycare a worthwhile investment (Letters, NewsLeader, April 3) I totally agree with Sharon Elizabeth Gregson’s comments saying subsidized daycare would be a worthwhile investment in our economy. I would also like to acknowledge that that young children who have access to quality early learning programs like daycares have successful development years. Children learn important social and empathy skills, they enter kindergarten ready to participate. Subsidized childcare is good for the economy and society. It’s a win-win situation. Remember it takes a village to raise a child.     Judy Olivieri Early childhood educator Burnaby

The child care at Twelfth Avenue elementary is back in business after South Burnaby Neighbourhood House (SBNH) came forward and was approved by school officials. The Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion (BACI) had pulled out at the end of March after more than 20 years operating the before-and-afterschool care. In a February interview, its co-executive director Tanya Sather said it had struggled with a “significant deficit” at the centre due to years of low enrolment and it hadn’t had children with special needs enrolled for some time, so it no longer met its mandate. BACI also said at the time that it was ending its operation of the out-of-school care at Suncrest elementary at the end of June, also due to a lack of special needs clients. SBNH will take over both child care centres, at Suncrest in September and Twelfth Avenue immediately, said its executive director Antonia Beck. Please see NEW, A3

tanker troubLe There is one more thing I’ve learned about oil tankers. I’ve noticed a tendency on the

part of oil industry supporters to overstate the merits of double-hulled oil tankers. They often give the impression that two hulls will reduce or prevent spills in the case of collision or grounding. But the fact of the matter is that, by and of themselves, double hulls do not deter oil spills. In much the same way as a car accident, the amount of damage caused by a collision is determined by the force of the impact. As we all know, a low-energy impact will result in a fender bender, while a highenergy impact will do much more damage. The same principle applies to ships. And, yes, an undamaged inner hull can help keep a ship afloat if a low-energy collision creates a breach in the outer hull. However, the higher the energy impact the more likely both hulls will be breached.   A major difference between a ship and a car, of course, is that a ship doesn’t have brakes.

BC Rail conflict complaint rejected Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – A conflictof-interest complaint against Premier Christy Clark for her role in the 2003 sale of BC Rail assets has been dismissed. Saskatchewan lawyer Gerald Gerrand reviewed the complaint made by Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen after he quit the B.C. Liberal Party last year. In a 40-page decision released Wednesday, Gerrand found that Clark had no way to benefit personally from the sale, and that her decision to absent herself

from 2003 cabinet discussions did not demonstrate a real or perceived conflict of interest. Clark said Wednesday she is relieved that the report is out, putting to rest what she described as “rumours, gossip and nasty untruths” about her conduct as education minister a decade ago. “It’s cleared the air on this,” Clark said. “For me it’s proof that anybody can say anything, and it doesn’t have to be true for it to be hurtful, and it doesn’t have to be true for it to be reported again and again and again.” Gerrand was harshly critical

of some of van Dongen’s accusations, noting that they arose nine years after cabinet meetings that van Dongen attended as agriculture minister. Van Dongen’s complaints about Clark’s dealings with a lobbying firm representing one of the bidders for BC Rail are “replete with suspicion and innuendo,” Gerrand wrote. One of the accusations was that Clark may have been a source of confidential information that was passed to the bidder, U.S.-based OmniTRAX. The leaked information was central

to the case against two former ministerial assistants in the B.C. government, Dave Basi and Bobby Virk. Basi and Virk eventually pleaded guilty to breach of trust and accepting benefits for their role in the case, admitting to providing confidential bid information to OmniTRAX in exchange for money and a trip to Denver to take in a football game. Garrand was appointed by B.C. Conflict of Interest Commissioner Paul Fraser, who excluded himself from the case because Fraser’s son

Garrand interviewed a long list of players in the BC Rail controversy, including Clark’s former husband Mark Marrissen and Erik Bornmann, a lobbyist with Pilothouse Public Affairs, which represented OmniTRAX. Garrand, who serves as conflict of interest commissioner for the Northwest Territories, took evidence under oath in his inquiry. Its findings offer a preview of a commission of inquiry into the sale of the railway that NDP leader Adrian Dix has pledged to hold if elected.

Metro Vancouver will soon launch its search for sites for a new waste-to-energy plant that is sure to be controversial in whatever neighbourhoods are picked and potentially lucrative for the

they wait to see if their site is chosen. Meanwhile, some of the 19 companies proposing various technologies to build the new plant may have secured sites of their own that would also be added to the list. All proposed sites would be made public by the end of this year ahead of public consultations to gauge community support. Host sites don’t necessarily have to

be within Metro Vancouver. Sites further away, such as on Vancouver Island, would have one advantage: defusing opposition from Fraser Valley residents who fear more air pollution wafting their way. And there could be sites in the Fraser Valley itself – one of the proponents is named Chilliwack Bioenergy Group and owned by local businessmen there.

But other factors will also be in play, according to Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan, vice-chair of Metro’s zero waste committee. Undeveloped greenfield sites or others where intensive redevelopment is expected – such as Surrey’s City Centre – may better harness steam heat or electricity generated by the plant for a district energy system

than BC Hydro’s prices – as a carrot to draw developers to the precinct. Besides being a powerful economic development lever, the resulting district energy enclave may also be trumpeted as cutting greenhouse gases. “It’s a really good green badge for ciites,” Corrigan said, adding a new incinerator could power the equivalent of 15,000 homes with garbage that would otherwise be landfilled. “Obviously this isn’t going to be as clean as burning natural gas or getting hydro from a dam. It wouldn’t be your fuel of choice. But the idea is you create energy from the garbage because youre stuck with the garbage.” Cities and First Nations can both directly propose their own property and the Tsawwassen First Nation has had talks with Aquilini Renewable Energy – one of the proponents – about hosting the plant on TFN treaty land.

supplying nearby buildings. “There are some benefits that can go to a community as a result of that,” Corrigan said. “Also it encourages development in areas where you might not have been able to encourage development before, because they’ve got this source of energy.” He said a city could parlay a waste-toenergy plant into success in several ways. If it proposes a site in the midst of a larger area of industrial land it already owns, the city can later sell off its surrounding land at a profit to industries or other buildings that spring up around it, also pocketing development fees and a permanent jump in its property tax base. Since any site proponent can put whatever conditions they want on it, the city could also insist it get electricity or heat from the Metro incinerator at wholesale rates and then use the offer of discount power – lower

GUEST column

Kitimat Clean refinery proposal has merit

I

first heard of this concept from David Black a number of years ago.

At the time I was skeptical of its chances. My initially negative attitude was based mainly on my experience of 10 years service on the board of directors of Imperial Oil. Since I was accustomed to the discussion of petroleum economics centered in Calgary, I saw no need for a refinery in Kitimat. That attitude was based on the fact that there had not been a new refinery built in North America in many years. And any needed increase in petroleum production was achieved by expansion of existing refineries throughout North America. But after my service with Imperial Oil, I went on to serve four years at Canfor which led to my nine visits to China in search of lumber markets. My exposure to the phenomenal expansion of China’s economy opened my eyes to the true merit of the Kitimat refinery concept.

Jim Shepard It made me realize that it would not be just another refinery relying on the North America market but rather a refinery that would supply the vast appetite of China for petroleum products. The challenge will be to draw the attention of Asian investors who would see the value to this investment. It appears that David Black, after many years of effort, is nearing an agreement that could provide the vast capital infusion needed to make this refinery initiative a reality. The appetite for oil products for all Asia will continue to grow and the Kitimat refinery is ideally situated to take advantage. Asian countries, especially China, are very interested in securing sustainable supply of resources that will flow freely without undue trade barriers like surprises with taxes, regulations or tariffs. Canada has a good reputation as a free trade country that can be relied on as

Meet Burnaby’s Tina Palazzo, Kin’s Green Fighter…

Tina’s next challenge is to share her favourite physical activity and healthy meal. Visit the Kin’s FB page.

Tina is working on leading a healthier life and wants to continue this with the Kin’s Green Fighters challenge. Tina Palazzo is fretting about her birthday. Not because she’s getting older. She’s not sure how she’ll handle all the indulgences that come a birthday. “There will be a lot, and I mean a lot, of birthday celebration which will involve dinners and going out for drinks,” she says. But she’s determined not to let her fun derail her Kin’s Green Fighters fitness and health challenge. Into the second month of the challenge, Palazzo says her work is showing benefits. She’s lost 10 pounds, she’s starting to see muscle tone, her exercise sessions are lasting longer and her self-confidence is building. “I feel awesome,” says Palazzo.

GREEN FIGHTERS

David Black, owner of this newspaper, is also the owner of Kitimat Clean Ltd., a company which hopes to build and operate a refinery in northern B.C. that would be the cleanest upgrading and refining site in the world.

a dependable source of supply. Now is a very opportune time to attract the vast investment needed to make the Kitimat refinery go ahead. David Black, with his years of dilligence, deserves our appreciation for displaying the foresight and courage to invest his time, money and reputation to help bring along this huge initiative. The positive merits of the Kitimat refinery are so profound that this project is really beyond any political persuasion. Any and all supporters of NDP, Liberal, Conservative or even Green should see the tremendous benefits that would come to B.C. with this project. This initiative will involve the investment of billions of dollars. It’s hard for any of us to visualize a million let alone a billion of anything. So let’s look at the “on the ground” facts of such an undertaking. Let’s start with the big picture. When it comes to the benefits of a petroleum cycle from well exploration to the gas station, the jurisdiction that hosts the refining process enjoys a huge portion of the value addition to the raw material. For the Kitimat Clean refinery project, that would mean several thousand mostly trade union jobs for the multi-year term of the construction phase. It would also mean creation of over 3,000 permanent jobs for the operation and supply support of the refinery when running. This refinery would be processing 175 million barrels per year which means the tax revenue that could go toward health care, education, vital services for the disabled and elderly would be immense.

But job creation and tax revenue is not the only desirable feature of the refinery. It also would provide much lower risk to the marine environment. The shipments out of the refinery would be finished product like aviation fuel, gasoline and diesel. These products, if ever spilled, would be much less impactful on the marine environment. They would also be transported in smaller ships. I know there are those on both sides of the political aisle that see this as a political issue. I would disagree with both. This is a project that can be attractive to all political stripes. Trade unions would see a significant increase in jobs and memberships. Hospitals and schools across B.C. would see an improvement in government funding. Business activity, especially in the challenged northwest B.C., would be positively impacted. And those with a concern for the threat of marine spills would see a significantly reduced exposure for the environment. Based on the huge positive impact this initiative could have on B.C., I think the question should not be if we want it... but rather, how can we help make sure the petroleum world sees this as an attractive way to invest billions of shareholder capital.

Poll finds 20% undecided The NDP has a 17-point lead on the B.C. Liberals among decided voters, but one in five people are still undecided, according to a poll released this week by Insights West. The NDP had support of 45 per cent of decided voters, compared to 28 per cent for the B.C. Liberals. The Green Party was supported by 15 per cent, with 10 per cent backing the B.C. Conservatives. Insights West president Steve

Mossop said the poll shows 25 per cent of undecided voters are leaning towards the B.C. Liberals, with 20 per cent leaning NDP. The poll contacted 855 adult B.C. residents in the last week of March.

NDP offers movie tax break An NDP government would increase tax credits for movie, TV and video game production in B.C., to counter higher tax breaks offered by Ontario and Quebec. NDP leader Adrian Dix said Tuesday that if his party forms a government in the May 14 election, it will increase the tax credit for labour expenditures by foreign and domestic productions in B.C. from 33 per cent to 40. That would cost the provincial treasury $45 million a year, assuming increased movie and TV production. In 2009, Ontario

stepped up its tax credits to 25 per cent of all spending for movie and TV production by foreign companies in the province. Dix said the bigger tax break is to reverse a decline of 3,500 direct and indirect jobs in B.C. last year, with early results for 2013 showing a 32 per cent decline compared to last year. B.C. Liberal MLA Bill Bennett, minister of community, sport and cultural development, said earlier this year that Ontario’s tax credits are not sustainable. Bennett pointed to more than $2 million provided last year for BC Film + Media, which offers financing and marketing support to domestic projects, and the BC Film Commission, a provincial office that helps producers secure permits, crews and shooting locations in B.C. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

In the final days before the election campaign formally begins on April 16, the B.C. Liberal government is rolling out spending announcements as rival parties prepare to outline their commitments. In Vancouver, Premier Christy Clark and Education Minister Don McRae announced plans for earthquake-resistance work on 45 B.C. schools Monday, with a whopping price tag of $584 million. With 37 of B.C.’s 60 school districts in earthquake-prone areas of the province, the government’s systematic program to reinforce schools stretches back to 2004. In Abbotsford, Finance Minister Mike de Jong and Agriculture Minister Norm Letnick announced a $1 million program to provide milk from local dairy farms at no cost to children from kindergarten to grade two. Co-sponsored by the

B.C. Dairy Association, the program is offered to 1,400 schools already enrolled in the B.C. government’s fresh fruit and vegetables program. The front-running NDP completed their slate of candidates on the weekend. The NDP has chosen contenders in all 85 constituencies for the May 14 vote. NDP leader Adrian Dix is releasing a “fiscal framework” this week to outline what revenues and spending the party would implement to balance the budget within four years. Last week NDP finance critic Bruce Ralston accused the B.C. Liberals of presenting a balanced budget by understating spending plans and overstating revenues by a combined $800 million. B.C. Conservative and Green Party organizers are still searching for candidates in some constituencies, but both parties have released detailed policy documents on their websites.

Langley’s Waterstone to release next phase

Appealing to the downsizing market As the baby boomers get older, many of them are looking to find a singlestorey home that they can lock up and leave when they decide to go away for awhile. The newest phase at Langley’s Waterstone, called Esplanade, has been catering to downsizers with spacious floorplans and a vibrant community feel. “These are the largest ever floorplans offered at Waterstone,” says Scott Brown of Colliers International. “It’s also the first lofted product in the area. That loft gives you 100 square feet of extra living space.” Along with that extra space, the homes with lofts will have 14-foot

ceilings. Brown notes that it can be hard for downsizers to move from a larger single-family home to a small condominium, especially when they’ve been there for many years and possibly raised a family. “There’s an emotional connection to your home,” he says. One of the things that he has found downsizing buyers asking for is storage. People accumulate plenty of possessions over the years, and sometimes aren’t ready to part with all of it quite yet. For more information about Esplanade, visit waterstoneliving.ca or call 604-530-5399.

Moving into the bathroom, you’ll find a space made for peace and quiet. With a deep soaker tub, stylish chrome hardware and a frameless clear tempered glass shower door, you’ll feel like you’re in a spa as soon as you step inside. Homeowners will be able to take advantage of several amenities on-site, including a fitness studio and sauna, an outdoor terrace with plenty of green space, a firepit and children’s play area, and a concierge service. Residents will also have use of a lounge with a kitchen, bar and billiards table. However, it’s the huge lobby that is one of the most impressive things about Vantage. With it’s 20-foot vaulted

ceilings, gorgeous marble floor and oversize chandelier, it’s truly impressive. “The lobby blew me away,” Tayour says. Vantage is perfectly placed within the neighbourhood. With restaurants, transit and shopping on your front steps, you won’t have to travel very far to get what you need. Elementary and secondary schools are nearby, along with the British Columbia Institute of Technology and Simon Fraser University.

‘Only new completed development of this level in the area’

Embassy brings amazing Vantage point to Brentwood By Kerry Vital

Embassy Developments brings sophisticated style to North Burnaby with the premium collection homes at Vantage, its modern high-rise tower in Brentwood that is becoming an integral part of the skyline. “This is a small collection of boutique luxury homes,” says sales manager Muna Tayour. “They’re really, really spectacular.” With penthouse-style finishings and spacious floorplans, the premium twobedroom homes at Vantage are made for elegance. “This level of finishing is far superior” to anything else on the market, Tayour says. “This is the only new completed development of this level in the area.” Embassy is owned by Ryan Bosa, son of real estate legend Nat Bosa. The Bosa name is well-known for high-quality homes, and Tayour says this has had an effect on buyers at Vantage.

“Being familiar with the developer is very important in purchasing,” she says. “People are confident with Ryan and the Embassy name.” Indeed, Bosa started Embassy in 2003 and has since continued his father’s legacy for impressive projects. This is readily apparent in the premium collection homes, which are located on the 23rd floor and higher in the 33-storey building, so the views are spectacular. Each two-bedroom home comes with a spacious balcony to give you ample outdoor living space to entertain or relax. The huge windows bring the outdoors inside, highlighting the nine-foot ceilings that add to the airiness of your home. The two-bedroom floorplans average 1,150 square feet, so there is no shortage of space. In fact, Vantage is the only tower in the neighbourhood that offers such large suites. The two-bedroom homes are one-of-a-kind, and perfect for homeowners looking for the space of a penthouse but with the price of a condo. When it comes to making your home your own, you are able to choose between two colour schemes, Classic and Contemporary. In the kitchen, you’ll find full-size stainless-steel appliances and a fullheight stone backsplash. The Classic colour scheme comes with granite countertops and horizontal wood
