Band program saved from cuts

Board decides to seek alternatives for chopping elementary school music program Grant Granger

ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

An elementary school band program threatened by teacher cuts as the result of the New Westminster district’s deficitreduction program will be retained. Board of education trustees decided Tuesday to have district staff consult with stakeholders

to find out what options could be considered to find the savings elsewhere. The program involved a music teacher going to the elementary schools in the district to teach twice a week. It was anticipated the district could save between $15,000 and $20,000 if the teacher was redeployed elsewhere in the district. Trustee Casey Cook said cutting the program upset some music teachers, staff, and former and current students. “I advocate highly we keep it

going. The data and information is in, and it’s very, very clear that for a lot of students involved in music their educational outcomes are significantly better. It gives a lot of students focus, an area to concentrate on and a great sense of achievement. To me it’s an essential in an education system,” said Cook. “It’s really important to add balance. We have many advocates for sports, but at the same time we need to advocate for the arts, we need to advocate for music.” The board, however, wants staff

and stakeholders to come up with alternatives to replace the savings. “We’re looking at ways to make [the program] more cost effective,” said Cook. “In all fairness, to put it into perspective, you can’t be operating a $60 million budget and make $4 million to $5 million in painful, substantive cuts and we know that is happening.” • The board has also determined the name for the new middle school scheduled to be built on the site of the current John Robson elementary will be geographical.

The warm weekend was a few days in the past but Mary Wilson was still basking in the sunshiny success of the first Jane’s Walks in New Westminster. The walks were part of an international program in which residents take participants on little foot sojourns throughout their community to tell them about what’s happening, what’s happened and what’s neat in their city. Wilson managed to organize 10 walks over two days May 4-5, including one of her own from the West End to Uptown. “It went well,” gushed Wilson. “It was perfect weather, almost too perfect. “The ones who chose noon on Sunday down the Glenbrook Ravine, they loved it. It was a fabulous walk down there. Good strategy.” The most popular walk featured five of the six candidates in the New Westminster riding in Tuesday’s provincial election. Please see ‘UNIQUE’ A13

Candidates up close In Wednesday’s NewsLeader, reporter Grant Granger profiled the BC NDP candidate Judy Darcy and the BC Liberals’ Hector Bremner. Today, he highlights the remaining candidates: Terry Teather (BC Green), James Crosty (Independent), Paul Forseth (BC Conservative) and Lewis Dahlby (BC Libertarian). B.C. goes to the polls on Tuesday, May 14.

GREEN: ‘It’s time we took the bull by the horns’

A

s a high school Social Justice 12 teacher Terry Teather is always on the lookout for classroom fodder.

A few years ago, he picked up Climate Wars, authored by Canadian journalist Gwynne Dyer. “It made a huge impact on me,” says Teather. The effect was so significant he decided to take it beyond just being another topic for discussion in class. He felt it was time for him to step up and do something to change the world, and not just preach that philosophy to his students at the Cloverdale Learning Centre

where he’s worked for 15 changes. I know we have years. to strengthen the So Teather economy but at asked the Green the expense of Party how he the environment could help in would be the provincial shortsighted,” says election he knew Teather. was coming up “I’d like to May 14. They make some sort of responded by impact.” TEATHER asking if he That’s how wanted to be a Teather became candidate. Teather figured it the Green Party’s candidate was time to not just talk the in the New Westminster talk, but walk the walk. riding. “I’ve got to get involved As he goes around town somehow because it doesn’t campaigning, he talks bode well for anyone in the about how the Greens have world, let alone provincially evolved into more than just or in Canada. It’s time we a one-issue party developing took the bull by the horns policy platforms on more and made some significant than 25 topics giving British

Columbians the opportunity to have an alternative voice in the legislature. “I really feel there’s a need to have a third party, I don’t feel the bi-partisan system we have now in the province works,” says Teather. “Both the Liberals, or what is perceived to be Liberal in name only, and the NDP are entrenched and we’re not.” Teather, 61, grew up in St. Catharines, Ont., and worked as a social services director for the City of Niagara Falls before coming west 34 years ago to get a master’s degree from Simon Fraser University. He and his wife Andria moved to the Quay seven years ago because it has easy

access to his job and the rest of the Lower Mainland. “We love living here, we love the revitalization of the River Market and the friendliness of the area,” says Teather. He sees the replacement, repair or refurbishment of the aging Pattullo Bridge and the threat of coal dust from a proposed transfer facility in Surrey as key issues in New Westminster. Teather suggests TransLink convert the Pattullo into two lanes of vehicular traffic and a third for cyclists and pedestrians. T: @TerryTeather W: www.greenparty.bc.ca/ terry_teather

INDEPENDENT: ‘There was no voice for New Westminster...’

J

ames Crosty was on home turf, so to speak, last Wednesday evening and he took full advantage.

The location was the Inn at the Quay, about a two-minute walk from his Quayside condo. The event was the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce’s provincial election all-candidates forum on small business, and being a small business owner the theme was right up his alley. And just like Cheers, everyone in New Westminster knows his name. Crosty, an independent candidate, has consistently hammered two themes. As an independent MLA, he says, he wouldn’t have to follow party lines and would vote for what’s best for New West. And, as he pointed out twice last Wednesday,

he’s lived in this city longer than the two candidates considered to be frontrunners, Hector Bremner of the BC Liberals and the NDP’s Judy Darcy, combined. Before coming to New West, Crosty and his long-time personal and business partner Paul Thompson were based on the North Shore. In the 1990s they began running a personal care manufacturing plant in Surrey, but soon discovered it was long distance to phone the plant. So they moved to Sapperton, at Sherbrooke and Richmond, with a beautiful unobstructed view all the way to Mt. Baker. Before they’d finished unpacking their boxes they became embroiled in a fight with city hall to save Sunset Park across the street from their home.

With Buchanan Lodge organization. being rebuilt, Sunset’s After he and old-growth trees were in Thompson moved danger. to Quayside, Crosty Around the same helped found its time Crosty had his first community board, and foray into provincial became its president. politics.

The phone rang off the been part of his neighbourhood’s hook, and one of those calling battle with Ottawa over noise and was Gordon Wilson, leader of a vibration from trains at Quayside. previous incarnation of the B.C.

Crosty and three fighting a plan for a coal transfer others, including Terry Julian, terminal in Surrey across the father of current Burnaby-New Fraser River from New West, Westminster NDP MP Peter starting a petition against it. Julian, formed a Liberal riding That follows on the heels of

the unsuccessful petition last summer to force the city to hold a referendum on borrowing money to build a Downtown office tower. On top of that, his recent successful battle with prostate cancer was front-page news in the Royal City. Crosty claims he’s proven he can work with people across the political spectrum, and can work with all parties to bring them together to resolve many issues affecting New Westminster. “There was no voice for New Westminster, and since I have one, a pretty loud one, I decided to go for it,” says Crosty, who is president of Root Source Inc., a consulting and distribution company he founded in 2002 with an office on Sixth Street.

On top of that, he believes it’s also bad policy since increasing the minimum wage creates poverty because employers have to reduce staff to pay for the rise in pay. “Governments routinely trample on the rights of individuals,” Dahlby recently told an all-candidates meeting in New West. “Democracy is not what it’s cracked up to be, it’s a flawed concept unless you have voluntary consent.” The 59-year-old native of Chilliwack owns Dhalby Trucking and Excavating which is based in Port Coquitlam where he resides.

ADRIAN RAESIDE:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

It’s easy to vote If the last time B.C. voters went to the polls is any indication, you’re just as likely not to cast a ballot in Tuesday’s provincial election as you are to mark your X. In 2009 just 50 per cent of eligible voters turned out at the polls to make their voice heard. In fact voter turnout has been declining steadily since 1983, when 70 per cent of eligible voters exercised their franchise. It’s not like voting is hard work, will make your clothes smell or even cause you to miss lunch. Short of knocking on your front door and sticking a ballot under your nose, Elections BC has made it increasingly easier and more convenient to vote. Advance polls opened Wednesday, and they’ll remain open through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Voters could also cast their ballot at their nearest electoral office from the call of the election right up until election day. There’s an electoral office in every riding and they’re open until 4 p.m. Just go to Elections BC’s website for a complete list of locations. It’s even possible to vote by mail, if you get your request for a voting mail package in by 4 p.m. on election day. Residents who won’t be in their electoral district on voting day can vote in any other riding in the province. In Comox, voters won’t even have to get out of their cars to cast their ballot, as a drive-thru polling station will be set up at a former car dealership. And while Elections BC has studied the viability of online voting, there’s no guarantee that would increase voter participation. In Markham, Ont. where residents have been allowed to vote online in the past three municipal elections, participation didn’t increase, but it also didn’t decline. So really, there’s no excuse not to vote. Not even the distraction of a Canucks’ playoff run.

An unsettling exercise in reality Ever had one of those moments when what you see before you is simply devoid of any immediately identifiable logic? I experienced one recently. Coming home from work, I opened the front door, and stepped into the foyer. And there on the floor beside the bureau was a baby carrier. That made no sense. We haven’t had one of those around for many years, as our baby is now a teenager. I looked in the baby carrier. And in it was a baby, all bundled up like babies usually are. Whoa! Who-what-how? Does not compute. Mental equivalent of a harddrive freeze. It took a few seconds for my brain to reboot. There was a reasonable explanation for this situation, of course. I just didn’t know what it was. Before I trusted myself to move, it was time to establish some basic facts. “Anna? Are you home?”

Andrew Holota “Yes. In the kitchen, dad.” “Did you know there is a baby, in a carrier, out here by the front entrance?” “Yes.” “Do we have a guest who brought along a baby?” “Nope.” “Do you know whose baby this is?” “Yes.” “Anna, whose baby is this?” “Mine.” A wave of severe dizziness swept over me. Obviously, it was the effect of walking through a door, and abruptly transitioning from my real world, to a surreal parallel existence, in which I was having an absurd and utterly alarming conversation with my 15-year-old daughter. I wondered if one could have a heart attack while trapped in a

parallel dimension. “Say what...?” I weakly queried. “That’s my practice baby for my family studies class. Remember? I told you a couple of weeks ago.” I took a closer look. Sure enough, the infant wasn’t real. A moment or two passed while I transferred back into my ‘normal’ world, and tried to coax my heart to stop imitating a panicking hamster. The first order of business was to admonish the teen for leaving a lifelike baby out on the floor where it would be seen by a forgetful father. “What’s it doing out in the hallway?” “Why, where else would it be?” Clearly, this is why this course is a good thing. “So, how long is it with you?” “Twenty-four hours. All night.” Now this is getting interesting. “What does it do?” “Cry every few hours, and then you have to hold him, and turn this key until he coos.” Well, they’ve got the right

concept, but oh, were it really so easy, my dear girl. “I’m not going to get a whole lot of sleep tonight.” Yes, I think that’s the point of the exercise. Just in case anyone has a cavalier attitude about parenthood, and how one gets in that condition, this may be helpful in setting them on a path of enlightenment. (I’m proud to say my teen is highly enlightened, but reinforcement never hurts.) And if that means she has to get up every couple of hours, and tote around a crying plastic baby, well, good. It was actually a well-behaved little thing for most of the evening. So much so, I had forgotten about it, and was sleepily watching something on TV, when I was startled to hear the sound of a baby crying. My teen was standing beside the couch, holding something out to me. “Dad, do you mind taking the baby?” Good thing I was lying down, because I think I passed out.

Why vote for you? It’s time to elect somebody that will actually represent New Westminster’s best interest in Victoria, not some other interest group’s. The next four years are crucial for New West, as there are several key decisions that need to be made which will become legacy decisions for our community, such as the Royal Columbian Hospital renovation and expansion, the building of the New West Secondary School, not to mention the Pattullo Bridge replacement. We need someone who will put the local politics aside and become our community’s representative.   What are the big-picture issue/s this election? Jobs, the strength of our economy and ensuring that we have strong public services that meet the needs of today. Everyone wants to know that they can put food on the table today, that they will have a secure tomorrow and that their children will have more opportunity than they did.  bremNer We need to keep government spending under control and maintain a balanced budget year after year—Europe and the U.S. faced the same challenge we do today, they chose the short term gratification option, Today’s BC Liberals have the long view in mind and are committed to smart fiscal management that will not leave mounds of debt for our kids. We will also keep the economy growing by not taxing job producers of B.C. and being clear on our positions to global investors, so they have the confidence they need to have in our market. We have a clear plan for success in growing our technology and natural resource sectors based on years of success. We will not let the over $1 trillion LNG opportunity slip through our fingers, as the NDP would have us do. We will create a core industry that will bring prosperity to B.C. for generations. Lastly, today’s BC Liberals have clear plans to divert future surpluses towards debt repayment and investments in public education and health care, ensuring we can keep our services strong, making life better for all British Columbians.

Why vote for you? Residents tell me they suffer from party fatigue and just don’t know who to vote for. By not voting for a political party means a vote for me is a vote for you. In this election New Westminster is selecting a new MLA from candidates that have lived here for a short time. I have been advocating here longer than the NDP and Liberal candidates combined, providing the knowledge to represent our Royal City more effectively.   What are the big-picture issue/s this election?  The provincial issues identified in this election change weekly. You hear about deficit spending to a balanced budget; protecting our coast to jobs in the resource industry; health and education funding to providing the status quo; job and skills training to taxes on business. The Liberals and the NDP seem at opposite ends and people don’t know where to turn. This is the challenge for voters in B.C. As an Independent, I will take the best from all platforms in consultation with you the voter to ensure benefits for our community. As the oldest city in B.C. we have requirements and the experience Crosty no other MLA can offer. By consulting with other members in the legislature we can bring a balance that no party member could. It’s a new time for New West and I will be the voice of compromise on voters’ behalf.   What are the local issue/s this election?  Education needs additional funding and assistance for accountability. Health Care: additional doctors in emergency plus the community, home care funding, expansion of RCH and an advocate for seniors and physically challenged. Air quality is about traffic as it affects livability, our health and that of our children. The expansion of coal exports from Fraser Surrey Docks and nighttime rail noise. There must be a solution to gridlock and the Pattullo Bridge repair or replacement problem. By finding the best in all platforms we can ensure our education system is funded with assistance to be accountable as our education system is unique. I will get our high school built! On health care I will push for more doctors. I will work for free PSA testing and ensure less fortunate voices have representation. On traffic I will force open the door so every stakeholder can participate and opposition against coal will continue.

Police warn of bank scam A New Westminster resident is out $1,300 after being the victim of an online bank loan scam. Police say the woman was looking to secure a $5,000 loan and found a bank online called Citi Plan. She filled out a contract providing her name, contact information and banking details including the routing number, type of account and bank account number as well as her signature. To get the money she was told to send funds as collateral via Western Union. She was required to do it twice because the ‘bank’ said her credit score

wasn’t high enough the first time. When they asked a third time, she became suspicious and notified New Westminster police. Investigators discovered the bank’s website had disappeared while its phone number was shut down after the resident asked for a refund. The public, said the department, should be vigilant about sending money for any purpose that can’t be verified. “No legitimate banking institution would request money so they could send money to an individual,” said a press release.

NewWestCandidates BC Conservative

BC NDP

Paul Forseth

Judy Darcy

Why vote for you? Many have concluded that it is Conservative values, which have been tested over time, that give best government. The disappointments of Liberalism in Canada are well known. The social consequences of NDP thinking cannot be denied. Any student of history knows what socialism brings. Sadly, we have had CCF-NDP (other than a brief BC Liberal stint) since 1952 in New Westminster. After 61 years, it’s time for change. Instead of staying home and giving up—as half the voters did last time—we can forseth make national headlines by electing a Conservative as the reasonable alternative.

Why vote for you?   I’ve dedicated my life to the belief that people should be at the heart of public policy. Our province is rich in resources and natural beauty, yet we have the greatest levels of inequality. Not only can we do better on child poverty, on the environment, on healthcare, education, childcare and job creation—but we deserve better. This election, we have a chance to make change for the better and I promise to spend every day working as hard as I can to do just that.   What are the big-picture issue/s this election?  This is such a big question to answer in so few words. Many people on the doorstep have shared their desire for change for the better, and their concerns about education, the skills-training gap, seniors care and protecting the environment. An NDP government will invest in our classrooms by hiring 1,000 new teachers, specialeducation assistants, librarians and counsellors. We will darcy improve access to post-secondary education. We will invest in preventive community care—and home care— so seniors can stay in their homes longer. And we will put in place a made-in-B.C. environmental review—and say no to the Enbridge pipeline.   What are the local issue/s this election?   Traffic. NWSS. Coal port expansion. Royal Columbian. At the heart of the challenges we face is a fundamental lack of respect for the people of New Westminster. We deserve a provincial government that treats New West as more than an intersection. That means an accountable TransLink board that gives us meaningful input on the Pattullo Bridge and on a regional transportation plan. It means greater investment in our schools and in public transit. It means a full public consultation with New West residents on any coal expansion that affects our community, and a real plan for our hospital.

What are the big-picture issue/s this election? The economic reality that our province faces impinges upon every issue, from employment prospects to required services. To protect B.C. from a European-style economic crisis, B.C. needs to have a predictable trustworthy Conservative economic approach, as the only way to generate the tax revenues needed to sustain our social commitments. What are the local issue/s that matter most to voters this election? What will you/your party do to address them? Support for our Royal Columbian Hospital is an issue, as well as local stresses in our school district, and environmental worries from traffic and industrial activity such as more coal trains. The MLA must reflect the community will, and vote to ameliorate those problems.

Election issue: NDP keeps ‘wiggle room’ on oil pipeline Jeff Nagel Black Press

Despite repeated questioning on oil exports this election, B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix still won’t explicitly rule out a twinning of the Kinder Morgan oil pipeline through B.C. Dix announced his party’s stance against a “massive expansion of oil tankers” through Vancouver harbour on Earth Day, to much applause from environmentalists who interpreted it as a rock-solid ‘No’ to Kinder Morgan. But two days later NDP energy critic John Horgan told Black Press the NDP doesn’t reject the pipeline twinning project outright and would wait to see how Kinder Morgan might revise its plan, possibly using a different terminal. Dix then rejected any other Metro Vancouver terminal, such as Deltaport, which Horgan had suggested the company might propose. The NDP leader was grilled in both the radio and TV leaders’ debates on the possibility Kinder Morgan might propose

bending the new pipeline south from Abbotsford to a terminal in Washington State, avoiding Vancouver. Both times Dix stuck to his position against Metro Vancouver becoming as an oil superport without issuing a blanket pipeline rejection. “What I say ‘no, period’ to is transforming the ports of Metro Vancouver into major oil export ports,” Dix said when asked in an intervew Wednesday why he doesn’t fully reject the twinning. “That increase in oil tankers off our coast is not in our economic and environmental interest and I’m against it.” Dix said Kinder Morgan is free to submit its formal pipeline application and said he has laid out clearer parameters than the B.C. LIberals’ “trust us” stance on new oil pipelines. Asked if he sees any potential game-changing revision to the pipeline proposal that makes it more attractive by reducing risk or adding benefits, he said no. On the notion of an alternate terminal, Dix said changing

the launch point of tankers a few nautical miles “doesn’t make a significant amount of difference.” Not everyone is convinced. “I think they’ve got some wiggle room,” B.C. Green Party leader Jane Sterk. “I think they could argue that if the tankers are going down south of the border, it’s not in B.C. waters.” SFU marketing professor Lindsey Meredith said it made perfect sense for the NDP to stake out a position against more oil tanker shipments through Burrard Inlet, given the concentration of concerned voters there. And he said it likewise makes sense to keep the door open a crack to a different, less contentious terminal because B.C. still needs jobs and oil pipeline revenue. He said Deltaport or a Washington terminal “may well turn out to be do-able.” Meredith predicts an NDP victory will spur Kinder Morgan to busily rework the twinning proposal with a different outlet.

*excluding new releases

Alicia’s next challenge is to create a Top-10 list of healthy activities. Visit the Kin’s FB page for more.

Alicia is working on leading a healthier life and wants to continue this with the Kin’s Green Fighters challenge.

Surprise her with new makeup. Yours with the purchase of $100 or more in Lougheed Gift Cards. Three shades to choose from. Available at Customer Service while supplies last. One per person per purchase. Colours may not be exactly as shown.

As Alicia Worobec heads into the final weeks of the Kin’s Green Fighters health and fitness challenge, she knows her real work is just beginning. It’s hard to break 25 years of bad habits and patterns in just 13 weeks. So taking on the challenge and sharing her journey has become a bit of a reset button for the rest of her life, says Alicia. “I knew the challenge was going to be my gateway into really doing the work I need to do,” says Alicia. “It’s so nice to slowly feel myself getting lighter and quicker.” The payoff so far has been losing more than two inches off her waistline and chopping more than five minutes off her time in the Sun Run recently. “The level of self-confidence, pride and motivation has gone waaaayyyy up,” says Alicia.

May 10, 2013 Goal: I want to break a family history of being overweight, and be a positive role model of health for my daughter. Fundraising Goal: $10,000 donation to Canadian Cancer Society

Friday, May 10, 2013 NewsLeader A13 Hi! My name is Nathaniel and I deliver newspapers for the New Westminster NewsLeader. I have been delivering newspapers for about two years and counting. I find being a carrier is a good pastime and I enjoy it. I try my best to provide customers with newspapers on time and in good condition, even during bad weather. I have received many thank-you gifts and tips from customers and neighbors because I provide a good newspaper delivery for them. I chose to be a carrier because I needed the money to buy luxuries for myself, but mainly I needed a job to pay for my monthly cell phone bill. Being a carrier will also help me in getting future jobs because it counts as work experience. Overall, I like being a newspaper delivery person and I look forward to continuing my services.

CARRIER OF THE WEEK: NATHANIEL

If you are interested in becoming a carrier for the NewsLeader or would like to nominate a carrier please call 604.436.2472 Thank you to Wally’s Burgers New Westminster for their kind sponsorship of the Carrier of the Week program.

All-candidates Jane’s Walk ‘unique’ ⫸

continued from FRONT PAGE

The candidates were accompanied last Saturday afternoon by about 50 walkers. “It was a good format, it went so well,,” said Wilson of the walk organized by New Westminster Environmental Partners, NEXT New West and Tenth to the Fraser. “They got to see some of the aspects of New Westminster from Sapperton to Downtown, you get to look at the bridges and see the traffic and then walking along there you get to chat with people.” “That was a unique one, good for this year. Next year maybe something else will be happening that we’ll be able to piggyback on.” She said one of the more popular ones was a walk on Queensborough’s South Dyke Trail with Les Gunderson. “People were just raving about his stories. He’s a great person to go out for a walk with,” said Wilson. She would have been thrilled to have had six walks but was ecstatic to have 10. “It has to be repeated, it just has to,” said Wilson. “How can we not be there? They (the walks) were all over the world.”

Board opts for geographical name ⫸

continued from FRONT PAGE

Earlier this year, trustees rejected a committee recommendation to retain the name of the former B.C. Premier (1889-1892) for the middle school. Cook said the board felt by going with a geographical name it would be consistent with the names of the district’s two other middle schools, Glenbrook and Queensborough. Cook said the district will be entertaining suggestions and it’s likely the topic will be on the agenda of the next board meeting.

Kids & Company founder Victoria Sopik chats with New Westminster’s acting mayor Lorrie Williams at the official opening of the new daycare in the Brewery District.

Finding the delicate balance between work and life can be a challenge. Especially for working parents of young children. But an expansive new daycare in the Brewery District will make it easier for parents who work in the new complex as well as neighbouring Royal Columbian Hospital. Kids & Company has built its business model on developing partnerships with corporate clients like the Royal Bank, CIBC and Deloitte to care for their employees’ young children just a stroll down the hall or ride down the elevator away. “Progressive companies want to keep good people working for them,” said Kids & Company’s founder and CEO Victoria Sopik, who was on hand for the new facility’s official ribbon cutting last week. While workers put the finishing touches on the daycare’s outdoor space, that overlooks the Fraser River and the Millennium SkyTrain line, visitors strolled through the bright classrooms that are segregated by age group. Each has big windows that let in lots of natural light. All are equipped with little tables and chairs, an array of shiny new toys, decorated with colourful soft rugs, and in the classroom for the youngest children, a darkened alcove is

furnished with cribs for nap time. When the daycare welcomes its first children in June qualified instructors will keep them active with a physical movement program called Munchkinetics, a reading and play program called AlphaMania, art and even sign language and French programs. Kids who attend full time will get two snacks and one hot meal a day, as developed by Kids

& Company’s own kitchen and approved by registered dietitians and nutritionists. Because the daycare is partnered with corporate clients, employees of those partners are guaranteed spots. If any of the 56 openings at the Brewery District aren’t claimed, they’re made available to the community at large. That partnership also means Kids & Company has to be responsive to corporate needs, so parents aren’t

fined if they have to work late on a project and miss their child’s scheduled pick-up time. The facility also offers emergency care when school is cancelled, an employee is called in to work on a normal day off, or a child’s regular caregiver is sick. “No matter how organized you are, or how much you plan, things come up,” said Sopik, who’s raised eight children of her own.

SPORTS hyAckS fALL IN fINAL New Westminster Hyacks forward Ellelan Degife battles Burnaby South Rebels defender Kim Saran for control of the ball in their Burnaby/New West senior girls soccer final at the Burnaby Lake Sports Complex West on Tuesday. The Rebels won 2-0 and will play North Shore champion Argyle Pipers for a spot in the AAA provincial championship at Lillooet Park in North Vancouver on Monday afternoon. At the same time in West Vancouver the Hyacks will take on the winner of a game played between the Handsworth Royals and the West Vancouver Highlanders on Wednesday. The victor will then take on whoever loses between South and Argyle for a second spot in the provincials, which will be held in North Van May 30 to June 1. MARIO BARTEL/NEWSLEADER

Digby’s CFL dream close Tyler Digby’s dream of playing in the Canadian Football League came a step closer to becoming reality when the New Westminster Hyacks product was selected by the expansion Ottawa franchise in the 2013 draft. The tight end was taken in the fourth round, 36th overall, by Ottawa, which was restricted to the final pick of the first four rounds and only being able to select players that wouldn’t be eligible to play DIgBy until 2014 when the franchise is expected to begin operation. Digby has been attending Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh on both a football and lacrosse scholarship. He is currently in his final season of lacrosse, but had to sit out one football season because of injury making him eligible to play this fall for the Colonials. He caught two passes for 32 yards in nine games last season. The six-foot-three, 250 pounder was also selected in the first round, sixth overall, in the 2013 Western Lacrosse Association draft by the Burnaby Lakers, although he told club management that wanted to explore his CFL options before returning to the lacrosse floor. So far this field lacrosse season, the 22-year-old Digby is the school’s fourth leading scorer with 22 goals and 10 assists in 15 games. He led the New Westminster Jr. Salmonbellies in scoring two years ago with 49 goals and 94 points in 17

games, and added eight goals and eight assists in four playoff games. He did not play last season. • When Digby played for the Hyacks he was on the receiving end of a lot of passes from quarterback Matt MacGrotty. Last weekend Digby was on the receiving end of a 14-7 loss handed to the Colonials by MacGrotty and the Bryant University Bulldogs in the North East Conference final. That qualified the Bulldogs for MAcgROTTy the NCAA Div. I championship in the Smithfield, R.I., school’s first year of eligibility. However, MacGrotty, a starting defender for every game in his junior season, and the Bulldogs face a tough task going into the tournament as the 16th seed having to face the top-seeded University of Syracuse Orange in the Carrier Dome, a nearly 50,000-seat stadium on the upper New York state university’s campus. MacGrotty, a former New Westminster Jr. Salmonbellie, will be returning to the Lower Mainland to resume playing for the Western Lacrosse Association champion Langley Thunder.

Bojilov in East-West game Another former Hyack football player, linebacker Vivie Bojilov of the UBC Thunderbirds, will play in the East-West Bowl in London, Ont., Saturday. It is for players eligible for the 2014 CFL draft.

Woodward sets PB in Tokyo New Westminster’s Krista Woodward threw a personal best to finish third in the women’s javelin event at the Seiko Golden Grand Prix track and field meet in Tokyo on Saturday. Woodward had a throw of 60.15 metres, which was a metre short of the Canadian record held by Liz Gleadle of Vancouver. The throw was the 17th longest in the world so far in 2013 and the farthest by a Canadian. A placement in the top three at the Canadian championships in Moncton, N.B., June 20-23 will qualify the former University of Georgia Bulldogs athlete for the world championships in Moscow, Aug. 10-18.

Ask a Pro Renovation Seminar + Expo to take place on May 16

GVHBA to hold renovation seminar The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association will hold its popular Ask a Pro Renovation Seminar + Expo on May 16 at the Croatian Cultural Centre in Vancouver. “Home renovation continues to be popular and there is no shortage of fly-by-night operators taking advantage of trusting homeowners,” says GVHBA CEO Bob de Wit. “Dealing in the cash-only underground economy to avoid tax, rather than working with a professional renovator, exposes homeowners to liability issues and close scrutiny from municipal bylaw officials, provincial safety authorities and others.” Participants will learn about the

stages of the renovation process, including finding a renovator, permits and design. Presenters include renovators, a lawyer, a finance expert and a municipal building official. The exhibition area will be open between 5:30 and 7:30 to allow homeowners to speak with the more than 30 experts in attendance beforehand, and then the seminar will follow from 7:30 to 9. Admission is free, but homeowners are asked to pre-register and bring a food item for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. To register, visit www.gvhba.org, email signmeup@ gvhba.org or call 778-565-4288.

Chilliwack retirement living

Retire in style at Englewood Courtyard By Kerry Vital

Resort-style retirement living has come to Chilliwack at Englewood Courtyard. With amenities right on-site and elegant homes that are perfect for downsizers, it’s not hard to see why the project is already so popular. “We wanted to build a community atmosphere,” says realtor Kathy Virtanen. “This is the place you’re looking for if you want a sense of community. You don’t always see that anymore.” Englewood Courtyard is part of a master-planned community just for adults over the age of 45 called Englewood Village. Residents will find leisure activities, shopping, entertainment and restaurants close by; outdoor activities are particularly easy to find at Englewood Courtyard, with its close proximity to Cultus Lake and Chilliwack Lake. Among the amenities on-site is a parking lot for RVs and Club Englewood, a 2,500 square-foot clubhouse with an exercise area, social lounge, kitchen, reflecting pond and a spa. You can also enjoy a patio barbecue area, bocce courts, community garden and a dog park, Virtanen says.

We wanted to build a community atmosphere,” says realtor Kathy Virtanen.

Chilliwack has long been a popular place for Lower Mainland retirees due to its lower real estate prices, beautiful scenery and relaxing atmosphere, so it comes as no surprise that buyers have been very interested in purchasing at Englewood Courtyard. Virtanen notes that she often hears buyers saying the good value, size of the homes and great design are the reasons they are interested in the project, along with the simply amazing views of the local mountains and rural surroundings. The first phase is currently on sale, with 40 one- and two-bedroom condominium residences ranging from 879 to 1,400 square feet in a variety of floorplans. This phase of Englewood Courtyard will be the first five-storey wood frame building in Chilliwack, and will be followed by two four-storey

buildings in the later phases. Those concerned about sound travelling between the condos will find peace of mind in knowing that there will be plenty of sound reduction between each home. The residences themselves are spacious and open, and are built with West Coast-style architecture that includes glass railings and plenty of windows to let the light pour in. Each home features nine to 12-foot vaulted ceilings, laminate flooring, maple shaker-style cabinetry, granite countertops and a gas fireplace, among other beautiful features. Airconditioning for those hot summer months is also included, along with underground parking for your convenience. The condos will be built using SAFERhome standards that allow you to age-in-place, so you won’t have to worry about moving again in your golden years. If you’re in the mood for a little bit of the outdoors, you can relax on your own covered balcony or private terrace. Homes at Englewood Courtyard start at $184,900. For more information, visit www.englewoodcourtyard.ca, call 604-824-8232, or visit the presentation centre at 45750 Keith Wilson Road, Chilliwack. The presentation centre is open between 12 and 4 every day.

The homes at Englewood Courtyard feature beautiful views over Chilliwack, along with gourmet kitchens, covered balconies or patios, spacious floorplans and plenty of natural light.
