after 40 years in Burnaby, glenn anderson is getting ready to move his edmonds appliances to Vancouver.

Edmonds Appliances to leave after 40 years Moving to Vancouver to be closer to high-end niche market Wanda Chow

Glenn Anderson could see the writing on the wall about a dozen years ago. As general manager and now part-owner of Edmonds Appliances, Anderson could see the devastating impact big box stores would eventually have on appliance dealers like theirs. “Fifteen years ago there were

18,000 independent appliance dealers in North America,” he said. “Now there’s 3,000.” The challenge is that big box stores such as Home Depot are less concerned about making a profit on each dishwasher, fridge or stove they sell. “It’s all about bulk and volume and market share.” Still, Edmonds Appliances has survived and thrived. It was founded in 1973 by Fred Williston and Brian Preston who eventually sold to current owners Bruce Young and Barry Gunn, the

latter who passed away recently, in 1986. Anderson joined the company in 1993 with an eclectic background that included being the creator of megahit toy Doodleart back in the 1970s, and stints working in advertising and the music industry. He recalled with a laugh that when he first started with the company, it was carrying on a common practice at the time of purchasing damaged appliances from manufacturers and fixing them up before putting them on the showroom floor, “cheap new stuff beside rebuilt stuff … Those days

could never be now.” It appears Edmonds Appliances survived by going the other extreme into the realm of high-end, premium goods. The company capitalized on the trend towards designer goods that started in the 1980s, and the realization by condominium developers that of all the items in a display suite, kitchen appliances were best able to reflect the prestige, luxury and branding they were seeking in the marketing of a project.

Two city-owned heritage properties, the Eagles Estate and Baldwin House, are back under Burnaby city management after The Land Conservancy of B.C. (TLC) handed back their operations due to the organization’s financial difficulties. TLC, which aims to preserve historic and environmentally sensitive properties in B.C., has had money woes in recent years, which led the nonprofit to mortgage some of the properties under its care to pay operating costs. A recent media report stated Joy Kogawa House, the Vancouver childhood home of the famed writer before her family was sent to internment camps during the Second World War, was facing foreclosure despite having been handed to TLC mortgage-free by the society which saved it from potential demolition. In Burnaby, TLC had one of its offices located at the 1929 Eagles Estate on Sperling Avenue and its management of city properties see TLC aDMITS, a3

Fire destroyed Edmonds store in 1998 ⫸

Edmonds Appliances was there to supply those projects. Almost serendipitously, it had purchased Y. Franks Appliances in West Vancouver, “probably the highest-end appliance retailer in Canada,” in 1990, said Anderson. The owners weren’t looking to get into that market at the time, they simply lived in West Van and knew the owners who let them know they were selling. About 12 years ago, Edmonds Appliances began changing its strategy to serve this niche market. They gave up on selling the usual brands, such as General Electric, Whirlpool and Frigidaire, and focused on

premium brands like Miele and Sub-Zero. It’s now the largest supplier of the Miele brand to the multiresidential market in North America, he said. We’re talking about kitchen appliance sets in the $25,000 to $40,000 range. They’ve supplied such appliances to condo projects such as the Shangri-La, both in Vancouver and Toronto, the latter a recent order for $9 million worth of product, and Harbour Green in Vancouver’s Coal Harbour. Anderson said when an electrical fire burnt down the company’s Edmonds Street store in 1998, he had thought to move

in that direction then, but the owners chose instead to hedge their bets and stay put while eventually working towards the current business model. But in the end, the company decided it had to move. “We’ve been trying to serve that group of clients from Burnaby, hoping people would travel from Shaughnessy, Point Grey, Dunbar and Kerrisdale,” he said. “We were hoping they would want to make the pilgrimage to lovely Burnaby, but that has not been the case.” And so, last December the company sold its Edmonds building and it plans to close its store at the end of June before re-opening at 459 W. 2nd Ave.,

east of Cambie Street, by the end of July. Anderson said he has mixed feelings about the move due to the company’s lengthy tenure in the community. But most of the current staff will be going along to the new location, which along with the low staff turnover, is a testament to how the company treats its employees. He tells the story of how the 1998 fire was devastating, coming just as the store was completing renovations. They opened up shop temporarily a few doors down as their current store was being constructed over two years, and had to deal with a resulting slowdown in business. “I didn’t lay off a single

person—which to me personally, that’s a badge of honour—we managed to find a way to keep everyone busy.” And over the years, as he’s watched other appliance retailers close down around him, Anderson credits co-owners Gunn and Young, both accountants, for keeping the business on course. The global economic downturn of 2008 was “horrifying,” he said. “We were not ever remotely at risk in terms of faltering because we’re extremely well funded … [and from] many years of Barry and Bruce being prudent.”

Colleen Jordan, chair of the city’s Heritage Commission, said city staff were aware in late fall that TLC was having financial challenges, eventually reporting to the commission in February that “basically they were going to have to not continue with their program with us.” TLC was not paying rent to the city but provided its management services in exchange for essentially being tenants at the properties, Jordan said. The resident caretaker at Eagles Estate has stayed on to look after the properties and city staff are looking at alternate uses. TLC had done a lot of work on the Eagles garden, much of it with the help of MArIO BArteL/neWsLeADer fILe volunteers, and the homes’ use as locations Catherine Dale took time to smell the flowers when she retired from her position as the gardener at Eagles’ for movie shoots also resulted in some Estate, while Laura Ralph took over the horticultural chores. restoration work being done, Jordan said.

deadline. However, in a report to its annual general meeting in November, the chair of its board, Alistair Craighead, said after two years of cost-cutting measures, it had to lay off additional employees in May 2012 without being able to pay them what they were owed. “TLC has never denied that risks were taken to save properties. Boldness enabled TLC to raise about $75 million, leverage a further $100 million and protect about 130,000 acres of the province over the last 15 years,” Craighead said in his report, which is posted online. “This has left us with just over $1 million in short term payables and $7 million in long term debt. We have a plan to ensure that these commitments are met and that will enable TLC to move forward.” Craighead said TLC is working on a new business model that will require fewer core staff and less operational funding. “In this model TLC will remain focused on saving properties but less focused on holding properties that have been saved. We believe that there are options for local communities and community groups to become more autonomous in saving, managing and raising funds for properties they care about with TLC in a facilitating role.”

From appliances to DoodleArt

Nagar Kirtan returns

Today Glenn Anderson is general manager and part owner of Edmonds Appliances. But back in the 1970s, he was the creator of toy craze DoodleArt, a series of blackand-white posters sold in a tube with felt markers for colouring. In 1973, Anderson was a 19-year-old Vancouver resident looking for a business opportunity after dropping out of university. He started the business, in

The Nagar Kirtan Parade will be taking place in South Burnaby this Saturday, May 18. Originally scheduled for April 6, it was postponed until now. The sixth annual parade will mark the 636th birth anniversary of Guru Ravidass, and 30th anniversary of the Shri Guru Ravidass Sabha (Vancouver). The festivities will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The parade will leave the Guru Ravidass Temple at 7271 Gilley Avenue around noon, turn west

which he commissioned artists to create the original 15 or so posters, with $500 and ended up selling about 30 million copies. “By the time I was 20 I had 200 employees in Vancouver and Los Angeles and was actually buying one-quarter of the felt markers made in the world.” But Anderson eventually tired of it and “retired,” giving the company name and poster designs to his mother. Years later, she took on selling

DoodleArt as an online business, but mailing out hundreds of orders a month simply got to be too much for the senior. Anderson helped her find a buyer and in 2011 she sold it to Andrew Perkins, Michael McLennan and Julia Finlay who this year commissioned the first new poster design in 40 years from one of the original artists.

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

NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Where’s Ottawa’s accountability?

LAST WEEK:

Chapter eight of the 2013 Spring Report of the Auditor General of Canada should ruffle the feathers of every taxpayer in this country. The title of chapter eight is “Spending on the Public Security and Anti-Terrorism Initiative.” The title should have started with the word “uncontrolled.” The spring report is the result of a performance audit designed to identify “… how well government is managing its activities, responsibilities, and resources.” The conclusion of the Auditor General on the massive spending program geared to keep Canadians safe from terror is that, “… departments and agencies reported spending $9.8 billion on PSAT Initiative activities, but information on whether departments used $3.1 billion in Initiative funding was not available.” Information on where $3.1 billion went is just not available? Why? At tax time Canadians were asked to provide proof of income and expenses to ensure we follow rules to keep our economy humming along. Why is the federal government playing under a different set of rules? The Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat mandate is to provide advice and support to Treasury Board ministers and provide oversight of the financial management of government. Given that they have identified three possible scenarios that might account for what happened to the money it shouldn’t be a big leap to drill down a little further. Money should be something easy to track. This department received X amount, then X gave it Y who spent it on Z. Here’s the paperwork about what Z is. According to the report, weaknesses in the way the government assesses proposals for funding and their reporting processes, were identified as far back as 2004. This isn’t pocket change, so the question needs to be asked: How well is the government managing activities, responsibilities and resources in this case? In a word: badly. – Black Press

THIS WEEK: Are you satisfied with the way the media covered the B.C. election? Vote at www.burnabynewsleader.com

Things you can’t say in elections VICTORIA – Another election campaign has come and gone, with the ritual posturing of political parties and most news media searching for anything they can portray as a conflict. Now comes the time to wonder why not enough people cared, or informed themselves about the real problems of running this $40 billion corporation called the B.C. government. Why would they, when the whole thing is presented as a combination of beauty contest and sports event, with endless discussion of polls and “attack ads” and who’s ahead and what’s the score? Again we have seen the truth of former prime minister Kim Campbell’s observation that elections are no time to talk about serious issues. Indeed, there are some things you can’t speak of at all. Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm caused a stir at a candidates’ debate when he referred to constituents’ concerns that disabled children can cause difficulties in classrooms. He didn’t say classrooms should be segregated, although

Tom Fletcher tfletcher@blackpress.ca

that’s a discussion worth having. He didn’t deny the need for more support for special needs kids. But his opponents immediately portrayed it that way, and media seized on the conflict despite the factual inaccuracy. West Vancouver-Capilano MLA Ralph Sultan had a similar experience when he referred to his study of poverty in that affluent area. He noted that there was a high correlation between single parenthood and kids in poverty. Picking on single mums, his detractors exclaimed, and that’s what got reported. The B.C. Conservatives kicked their Boundary-Similkameen candidate out of the party because he wrote an article saying women shouldn’t choose to be single mothers. You can talk about child poverty, as long as you only

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

discuss it based on federal statistics that do not measure poverty. Christy Clark started doing this as soon as she became B.C. Liberal leader, one of several issues where she dispensed with the facts and tried to copy a popular NDP stance instead. She was all about families, which can of course be single people, single parents or pretty well anything you want them to be. In fact the decline of the traditional family and the abdication of responsibility by many parents, fathers in particular, are central factors in the problem of poor and neglected children. But you can’t talk about that, at least not during elections. Whole areas of political discussion have devolved into euphemisms that are chosen because they can’t be defined. Everybody’s in favour of “affordable housing,” for instance. What they won’t admit is that this is code for subsidized housing, because then they would have to talk about how much the subsidy is, and who has to pay for it.

Good grief, that might raise the question of whether the state should be taking money away from some people and giving it to others so they can live where they otherwise couldn’t afford to live. We even have rules preventing the media from reporting polls on election day. People might be influenced by this, you see. If you tell them Party X is far ahead, they might stay home and mow the lawn instead. If you tell them someone is making a comeback, they might change their vote because they want to be on the winning side, or the one that has “momentum.” Just like any other sport. The news media are steadily losing influence with the public. There are many factors involved, including the vast array of information sources that are available at most people’s fingertips. Another factor is treating the public like they’re idiots. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com

COMMENT Planned political reforms welcome The past few weeks have brought two pieces of good news, proposals, which, if implemented, will bring significant improvements to our democracy. The first is the announcement by the BC NDP that if elected it would eliminate union and corporation donations to political parties. This is also the policy of the BC Conservative Party and of the Green Party of BC. This is great news as we do not want “the best government that money can buy.” This is a good first step but we can do better. Ideally all voters should have equal legislative power. This means all voters should be able to make the same financial contribution to a political party, therefore it must be one which almost all citizens can afford. Our group, Burnaby/New Westminster Citizens for Voting Equality, recommended to the 2010 Local Government Elections Task Force that this principle be applied to civic elections, and suggested the amount be $100. For provincial elections, because of the available tax deduction, the amount could be made larger. The second piece of good news is that at its party convention the federal NDP confirmed its long standing commitment to reform Canada’s electoral system to a proportional one, along with a tour to consult widely with Canadians on the matter. Proportional means that each party’s percentage of MPs is the same as its percentage of the vote. With a proportional system Canada would no longer have policies dictated by a party that has less than 50 per cent support as is presently the case. Proportional systems are used everywhere except in some relics of the British Empire; the different systems vary as to how power is distributed between parties and voters. All of these systems are much superior to what we have now. David Huntley Burnaby/New Westminster Citizens for Voting Equality

Time for council To come clean on Taxes When will the Burnaby City Council drop the pretense that they are effectively controlling spending and wisely using our tax dollars? Every year for as long as I can remember, property taxes in Burnaby have increased at a rate faster than inflation. Every year council blames these increases on wage increases and outside sources like the Metro Vancouver government. This year they are even further disguising the actual increase by charging separately for garbage pick-up. At the same time Burnaby continues to build up an ever-increasing reserve of funds—funds that actually represent extra tax burdens on individuals. I believe that taxes are a necessary and good thing when they are properly allocated to support the services we demand as citizens. I have few illusions that Burnaby council actually does such a good job at fiscal management. It’s time council cut the BS, started using some of the reserves to support services in Burnaby and came clean with Burnaby voters about what is actually happening to the real tax rates we pay. Those rates include fees charged at city facilities, property and business taxes and separate items added to the tax bill. After all, taxpayers only have one wallet. Carl R Dillon Burnaby

my kind of special inTeresT group I see that the usual suspects are crying gloom and doom if the NDP forms the next government. Well I’ve been around quite a while and it appears to me that anything good that has been done for the general population has been initiated or instigated by the NDP or their for runners the CCF. Things such as the agricultural land reserve, the B.C. Ambulance Service, better return on forest royalties, a streamlined legal system, family farm protection, tougher consumer laws, better public transport, rent control,

pharmacare and mincome for the aged, guaranteed income pensions, the Workers Compensation Board, the Ombudsman’s office. Even ICBC, which every one complains about, gives us the lowest rates in Canada. I have heard that even the “Fast-cats” are providing reliable service in Dubai which would suggest to me that it was a political thing. One letter writer suggests that unless we belong to an NDP “special interest group” we will suffer. Well as a pensioner I guess I’m part of a special interest group. But I do not expect to suffer if the NDP prevails. Russ Leach Burnaby

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you On Sunday afternoon, my wife Jean began to show symptoms of a heart attack. Chest pains, pain in arm, sweating, etc. We discussed the situation, and felt it was serious enough to get to the hospital. She wasn’t feeling too bad, but thankfully, we decided to call 911. As it turned out, it was best we did so. The Burnaby Fire Department were first on the scene. They immediately took charge, calmed me down, hooked Jean up to various devices, started giving oxygen, and showed complete control and competence. Shortly after, the life support ambulance arrived, and skillfully took over. The firemen had done all the right things. The ambulance folks set about preparing her for a ride to the hospital. Their calm confidence continued. They allowed me to ride with her in the ambulance, and everything was done with coolness and efficiency.    Jean had had a small heart attack, and other related problems. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all you caring professionals. Raymond Beaton Burnaby

A long filibuster went a long way to Burnaby-New Westminster MP Peter Julian earning the title as the most talkative Member of Parliament in the House of Commons in 2012.

continued from page a5

With many seniors living nearby without easy access to transportation, the location provided a convenient place to shop. Area resident Allison Johns said in an interview a year ago that the IGA also served as a community gathering place. That’s just the sort of store Belich hopes to create. A second-generation grocer, Belich grew up in the business and is a meatcutter by trade. He’s been in the business for 40 years and has also owned the SuperValu franchise in Deep

Cove for the past 12 years. The new store will target customers who like to shop for fresh groceries daily and will feature organic and natural products, along with meat, deli and bakery departments and a selection of items from Loblaws’ brands, such as Presidents’ Choice. “We want people to tell us what they want,” he says. He believes the lengthy closure of the location was due to construction delays before he got involved as the franchisee. Some of the former staff of the IGA will be back led

by manager Michelle who has worked with Belich off and on for the past four decades. At 14,000 square feet, the store will be known as Greystone SuperValu and be open 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week. Belich aims to offer “real personalized service,” including home deliveries and phone-in orders, and be a place where people can grab a sandwich and coffee in an environment where staff know them by name. Greystone SuperValu, at 1601 Burnwood Drive, opens Wednesday, May 22 at 8 a.m.

MEAL & REVEAL NIGHT IS BACK!

Rush-hour blitz nets 50 tix Transit Police and Burnaby RCMP officers were not exactly hiding, yet they still managed to issue 50 tickets during rush hour on May 7 to drivers illegally using a bus lane on Lougheed Highway. The overt police effort included officers wearing high-visibility vests and police vehicles parked at the side of the road with amber lights activated, said a Transit Police press release. That apparently wasn’t enough to prevent drivers from violating the Motor Vehicle Act and receiving “disobey traffic control device” tickets which come with a $121 fine and two points levied against their drivers’ licences. The stretch of bus lane between Gagliardi Way and Production Way, which feeds the bus loop and SkyTrain Station, is extremely busy. Police consistently observed drivers turning westbound onto Lougheed from northbound Gagliardi, into the bus lane, to try to get through the light when traffic is backed up. Transit Police reminds drivers not to cross over a solid white line, to cross only into a turn lane where the dividing line is broken and to yield the right of way in marked bus lanes.

Hydroponic pot farms grown in well-gated industrial buildings would still be a good fit on lowquality agricultural land with marginal soils, he said. Daykin dismissed concerns that weed might crowd out food crops. “The reality is there’s probably only going to be 60 to 70 of these facilities across the country,” he said. “We might get one or we might not get one. It won’t hurt my feelings if we don’t.” A big concern for Daykin and other Lower Mainland leaders is what will be done to enforce the shutdown of existing federally approved medical marijuana growers, which have long been criticized for safety hazards and ties to the illegal drug trade. Health Canada won’t share their locations with local cities, so civic teams continue to conduct fire safety inspections that root out many growers. Medical marijuana grows often turn out to be in violation of health, fire, building or plumbing safety regulations.
