Surrey-Coquitlam link could help New West Grant Granger

Building a bridge connecting Surrey to Coquitlam could make a big difference in addressing New Westminster’s transportation issues. TransLink is going to the public this week to get feedback on 25 potential options for the Pattullo Bridge. Only six of them, however, have been recommended for further consideration from a

Coun. Jonathan Coté is going against the advice of one of his campaign managers in a past election in supporting the development of a regional road pricing system. Although his advisor told him “tolls are a political loser,” Coté has gone on record as saying it’s something that needs to be talked about if the Lower Mainland ever hopes to be able to afford to have a transportation system that reduces congestion. The Simon Fraser University urban studies graduate student outlined his thoughts in a recent SFU blog. “When talking about road pricing it’s a touchy subject. Most political leaders want to shy away from that conversation even if it makes sense,” said Coté in an interview with the NewsLeader. “The region is struggling with a transportation system that isn’t working and can’t finance itself.”

Glad to see more options on table: McIntosh ⫸

continued from frOnt page

While McIntosh pointed out Port Metro Vancouver and surrounding businesses would have to be included in such a solution, Eugene Wat, New Westminster’s manager of infrastructure planning noted so would the City of Coquitlam and the Ministry of Transportation. “A whole slew of other stakeholders would have to be involved,” said Wat. McIntosh said she was glad TransLink was presenting so many options in concert with the affected communities. “We’re feeling a little bit more included, that TransLink didn’t do a consultation that would make everybody mad. They didn’t want a repeat of the United Boulevard Extension,” said McIntosh referring to TransLink backing off the project two years ago because of opposition from New Westminster. She also said at least TransLink is willing to look this time at rehabilitation of the bridge instead of only proposing replacement options like it did last year. “They at one time weren’t even considering rehabbing, it was off the table. If you can do it for half the price [why not consider it],” said McIntosh.

The review is also presenting four unrecommended tunnel options with preliminary cost estimates ranging from $2.9 to $4.8 billion, but none were recommended due to “the sheer cost of building it,” said Wat. Three more options look at a Tree Island bridge connection between Burnaby and Richmond, but a major reason it wasn’t recommended was tolls would likely be needed and it would be too close to a “free option” in the Queensborough Bridge. TransLink senior project manager Darren Woodworth said how to pay for the project hasn’t been decided. “We first have to identify what we’re going to build and then determine how to fund this,” said Woodworth. “This is just the start of the process.” • Feedback forms can be filled out at Open houses will also be held at Sapperton Pensioners Hall, 318 Keary St., Thursday, 5 to 8 p.m., and at the Inn at the Quay on Tuesday, June 11, 5 to 8 p.m., and Saturday, June 15, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The City of New Westminster has long lobbied to get TransLink to consider replacing the Pattullo with a bridge further upstream, to link Surrey to Coquitlam. The public consultation for the Pattullo project kicked off this week.

Lineup announced for Concerts at the Quay Concerts on the Quay will kick off on Canada Day this year. The series, introduced late last summer by the Hyack Festival Association, will begin July 1 with a lineup headlined by singer-songwriter WiL, who has four albums to his credit. Other shows will be held Saturday, July 13 and Saturday, Aug. 3. “Our waterfront is one of the community’s greatest assets,” said association festival director Douglas Smith in a press release. “We want to attract attention to River Market, the boardwalk and [Westminster] Pier Park through the presentation of the concert series and hopefully draw visitors to New Westminster

from a wide region. I know everyone is going to be very impressed with the quality of music we will be presenting this summer.” Other acts on July 1 will be Dominique Fricot, Big World Band and Rich Hope. The show will also include Canada Day fireworks on the Fraser River. New Orleans-based blues man Ray Bonneville will be the headline act on July 13 while the blues duo of Hans Theessink and Terry Evans will be showcased Aug. 3.

In recent years there has been a great deal of talk about expanding the SkyTrain or rapid transit systems, as well as replacing the Pattullo Bridge. A main reason it’s only been talk is TransLink doesn’t have a way to finance it. Coté suggested reasonably priced tolls— he proposed $1 as an example—could be placed on all major crossings in Metro Vancouver, not just The Port Mann Bridge opened last year with tolls. Coun. Jonathan Coté believes a more equitable system would be to toll all crossings, but at a much lower rate. larger ones on the new Port Mann and Golden Ears bridges which currently major crossings and a third help achieve positive results. have them.

Dressing up Lower 12th Ap

Grant Granger

Guidelines on dressing up, brightening up and freeing up Lower 12th Street have been adopted by city council. The design guidelines, presented in a report by planner Mark Allison on May 27, for the area between Fourth Avenue, Stewardson Way, Royal Avenue and Louellen Street are intended to “create attractive, highly walkable, and transit-oriented streetscapes” to support the area’s development and provide connections to the city’s greenways. Although four gateways were originally proposed, it was decided to go with two key ones at the intersections of 12th at Stewardson and 12th and Third Avenue, where the Queens, BC Parkway and 12th Street greenways meet. The Third Avenue gateway is proposed to include a landscaped plaza that would be integrated with the future development of the Gas Works site on the southeast corner of the intersection. A “mews” (enhanced lane) is proposed to break up the large block of 12th between Third and Stewardson to provide a utility corridor and access to


The area around 12th Street near the old Gas Works site is being targeted for improvements to make it more attractive and pedestrian friendly. The upgrades would not occur immediately, but as properties in the area redevelop.

new developments. Other key features include: • Curb extensions to narrow 12th Street to make it more comfortable for pedestrians and allow for increased landscaping and public art; • Street level and pedestrian level lighting similar to what’s already along upper 12th; • Lights, signs, bus shelters and parking meters in boulevards leaving sidewalks clear of obstacles; • Sidewalks, landscaping and lighting for the mews; • Frontage that allows for increased activity on the street such as café patios and sitting

areas will be considered in building setbacks between Third and Fourth avenues; • Overhead electrical wire will go underground as properties redevelop. The report said the majority of the improvements would be implemented as redevelopment proceeds. Since remediation will be required near the Gas Works site because of soil contamination, developments there will be asked to make cash-in-lieu payments for street works normally required along their frontages. It would be done when the remediation work is ready to be undertaken.

Education expectations


Education was hardly a burning issue in the provincial election, leaving many parents, educators, trustees and administrators scratching their heads. Cash-strapped school districts from Prince George to New Westminster were expecting to hear something specific about a long-term vision for funding a 21st century education system. But whatever was in the political kit bags of the two party frontrunners was lost in debates over who would handle the economy better. Meanwhile, districts across the province are slashing budgets to keep spending in line with funding even as most observers concede the education system isn’t awash in cash to begin with. Rather, it is merely holding the line while expectations for smaller classes, support for special needs and help for children with learning disabilities, technology and other demands increase. So where was the talk about building a sustainable funding system for schools? Where was the leadership given last year’s labour unrest that resulted in many clubs and sporting events being cancelled? It was drowned out by political recriminations on both sides. Now though, Premier Christy Clark is re-floating an earlier trial balloon to seek a 10-year labour agreement with teachers. While it’s true that labour peace would surely benefit the education system, it’s hard to see how making the BCTF eat crow so soon after the election (many teachers thought they’d be dealing with a friendly NDP government) is going to bring this about. For many people, what’s needed first is a new, more equitable funding formula that doesn’t pit urban school districts against rural districts for scarce cash. Once a long-term vision for funding is revealed, then Premier Clark might be in a better position to work with teachers on the vaunted 10-year labour deal. —Black Press

Enbridge pipeline isn’t dead yet VICTORIA – One of Premier Christy Clark’s first tasks of the new term will be to resume trade talks with Alberta and Saskatchewan. Several daunting tasks await. Clark must repair relations with Alberta Premier Alison Redford after B.C.’s theatrics over oil pipelines before the election, and prepare for the results of a federal environmental review of the Enbridge Northern Gateway proposal in the fall. Some people were surprised on Friday when the B.C. government released its final written submission to the federal environmental review panel on Northern Gateway. It was widely interpreted as B.C.’s outright rejection of the project, but it’s not as simple as that. Clark and B.C. Environment Minister Terry Lake signalled several times before the election that they were not getting the answers they wanted from Enbridge. But they stuck to the principle that the hearings must be completed. The NDP repeated for months that the B.C. Liberal government

Tom Fletcher

had forfeited its own review and handed jurisdiction over the environmental assessment to Ottawa. In fact, a pipeline that runs across two provinces is by definition a matter of federal jurisdiction. B.C. could have held its own parallel set of hearings, which was the NDP’s stated preference, but in no circumstance does the province have a veto. And both the B.C. Liberal government and Enbridge were careful to leave the door open for further talks. A closer reading of their comments shows that the key difference at this stage is one of timing. “The panel must determine if it is appropriate to grant a certificate for the project as currently proposed on the basis of a promise to do more study and planning after the certificate

7438 Fraser Park Dr., Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9 |


is granted,” Lake said. “Our government does not believe that a certificate should be granted before these important questions are answered.” According to Enbridge executive Janet Holder, those important questions can’t all be answered until the hearings are over. The company maintains that every river crossing and spill response plan can’t be done in detail during the two-year hearings. B.C.’s final submission runs to nearly 100 pages. It goes into detail on the inconsistencies and unanswered questions on such vital topics as whether diluted bitumen can sink in water. In short, the province argues that it can sink if the oil is in fresh water, or if it is exposed to weathering so lighter fractions evaporate, or if it is mixed with sediments that increase its density. These are pertinent conditions if heavy oil were to leak into a river in springtime, when water runs fast and cold and brown with sediment. Then there are the obstacles presented











by responding to a spill in remote wilderness and heavy snow. Given both provincial and aboriginal opposition in B.C., the Enbridge pipeline is unlikely to be imposed, and last week Conservative cabinet minister James Moore clearly ruled that out. The B.C. government has consistently maintained that the current project does not meet Clark’s often-repeated five conditions, including the vaguely defined “fair share” of revenues, and Moore said the federal government agrees with those conditions. The B.C. government has to face some other uncomfortable realities as well. If heavy oil pipelines are such a risk, how does B.C. manage the one that has stretched across remote and populated areas for 60 years? Does the government take a stand against new pipelines, and then watch as rail cars full of heavy oil cross those same rivers? No permit is required for that, and in fact there are more hazardous materials than oil moving by rail and road across the province today.

Re: Growing Port Royal builds bridge pressure (NewsLeader, May 31) We were delighted to hear Aragon has not forgotten about running a water taxi from the Port Royal development to the River Market area, Downtown, Anvil Centre, Pier Park and, most importantly, the SkyTrain. This alternative, sponsored and promoted by a “right thinking” developer, makes so much more sense than the $20-million+ “Wright thinking” alternative of a 10-storey tall bridge outlined in a June 2009 city engineering report on so many levels. The water taxi would be far more accessible to seniors, those with disabilities and others that would eschew use of a bridge with a daunting series of ramps to climb the 10 storeys in order to cross the Fraser River, especially in the rain. A water taxi would be a fantastic tourist attraction, similar to the ones connecting the West End of Vancouver to Granville Island. The water taxi solution would also be a better way to assess the use of a crossing from Port Royal rather than invest millions in a permanent structure only to find that no one will use it because of both its inaccessibility and the much longer trudge to get to the very facilities that Port Royal folks want to access. No such traffic studies exist, beyond Aragon’s tutored judgement that the “critical mass of population” is there to make a water taxi viable. The City of New Westminster has no studies to support the viability of a pedestrian bridge alternative. The June 2009 pedestrian bridge proposal would infringe on, and likely destroy, the Quayside Park and greenway with its ramp access, depriving Quayside residents and others who use the children’s submarine park amenity.

Edward A. Riddell House (1926) at 221 Third Ave. in Queen’s Park is being torn down. According to the city, it has always straddled two legal lots and the current owner explored many different ways to preserve the house as part of redevelopment, but was unsuccessful. Two houses will be built on the property.

A SAD DAY FOR THE CITY I am wondering whether people are aware of what is transpiring at 221 Third Avenue in New Westminster. The beautiful 1926 heritage home that straddles two lots is being dismembered by a salvage company prior to its demolition. How can this be allowed to happen? This is not some run-down, uncared for property. It is a heritage gem and its demolition will be a huge loss to our city. Passersby frequently stop and admire not only the house but the pristine gardens. I would have thought that in New Westminster, where many people work hard to preserve our heritage buildings that this unique house would be safe and valued as a treasure. Just last weekend, hundreds of people bought tickets to view houses, such as this one, during the annual Heritage Home Tour and Tea. Walk by and see it soon before it disappears forever. What a sad day for our city! Karen Hollick-Kenyon New Westminster have listened to the community, we have heard concerns, and have worked hard to put the right mitigation strategies in place to address those concerns. We know there have been a lot of questions about the project, and we take our commitment to open dialogue and consultation with the community seriously. We appreciate all of the people who have taken the time to participate in the public consultation process by meeting with us and attending our community meetings last week. The objective of those meetings was to hear the concerns of residents, and at the same time share our mitigation plans with the community. We will continue to receive comments until June 7, and at that time will provide the feedback directly to Port Metro Vancouver as they continue to assess our project application.

We believe good feedback makes for a good project. It is about creating economic opportunity, but also carefully managing the impact on surrounding communities and the environment. In our case, the residents and elected officials of Surrey, White Rock, Delta, New Westminster and others have shared their feedback, and as a result, we believe our project will deliver this balance for all concerned. We will continue to share information with the community and look forward to continuing the dialogue. Jeff Scott President & CEO Fraser Surrey Docks

RCH cardiologist led with his heart Dr. Tom Godwin, who passed away last month, was a fervent advocate for patients, and was known for his kindness to all whose path he crossed


r. Tom Godwin never did things in half-measure. Not at home where he helped raise four sons with his wife of 52 years, Elaine. Not in his choice of dog, a succession of 200-pound English mastiffs. Not at his 120-acre farm in Surrey where he tended up to 110 head of cattle. Not at work, where he established the cardiac program and Royal Columbian Hospital (RCH) and his innovation of the cardiac catheterization lab and open-heart surgery programs helped lead the New Westminster hospital to become one of the top care centers for heart patients in the country. Godwin, who passed away in April, was driven by an undeniable passion to help people, and to do the right thing, says his son David. “He loved what he did. He had an unbelievable work ethic.” That was apparent as soon as he was hired as the only cardiologist at RCH in 1968, seven years after graduating from medical school at the University of Toronto. In his first 18 months on the job, he took one day off. “He gave his life to the When Dr. Tom Godwin was hired at Royal Columbian Hospital in 1968, he was the hospital,” says David. “His only cardiologist on staff.

He figured his patients, to his colleagues in the doctors’

Godwin “was always highly respected by his colleagues and idolized by his patients and staff,” says Fair. “He didn’t think he was better Did you know? than anyone else,” says David. • RCH’s Cardiac Centre is “He drove the oldest car in the among the best in Canada. doctor’s parking lot and he was Show them your support quite proud of that.” by purchasing a heart tile In fact most of Godwin’s family for the Cardiac Wall of was oblivious to his pioneering Gratitude. medical accomplishments at Visit for more RCH until after he was forced information. into retirement by illness in 1996. “He was so modest about all that stuff,” says David. And while Godwin no longer practiced medicine, he kept abreast of developments in cardiology by reading medical journals. “He liked to keep up with what was going on,” says David. “He sort of thought he could do more, there was more he could contribute.” But with the cardiology department at RCH now grown to 12 doctors and rated amongst the top in the country, Godwin had achieved plenty. “It’s a real legacy of things that he’s done and what he accomplished,” says David.

Dr. Godwin’s wife, Elaine, displays a heart tile at RCH in honour of her husband. “Tom advocated for the good health of his patients and the hospital,” she says.

A one-stop shop for living well Fair is a great opportunity to get connected with all you need to stay healthy and engaged in the community It’s that time again, as the fun and informative Healthy Aging Fair returns to Lougheed Town Centre on June 8, offering a chance for seniors and their families to learn about services and options available in their community. Visitors will find a “one-stop shop” where they can get information on living well and staying healthy as we age. Many who come out to the fair find it valuable because, while there are a lot of services available in the community, they’re not always easily accessible. This year there will be 30 organizations showcasing their products and services for seniors, including transportation services, seniors’ housing providers, home accessibility solutions, and health support services. The fair is organized by the Burnaby Seniors’ Interagency Society, and has continued to grow in scope each year. This year’s fair will feature some great entertainment, including a drum group, singers, a magician and a laughter yoga practitioner. There will also be prize draws, free give-aways and a chance to win a flatscreen TV. The fair is sponsored by the Mulberry Retirement Residence, the NewsLeader, the City of Burnaby and Lougheed Town Centre. The fair runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., is being held in the centre court and lower mall. For more information, visit

The 11th Annual Sapperton Day Street Festival is a celebration that brings over 15,000 visitors into Sapperton, showcasing its vibrant shops, services, restaurants, community organizations and homebased businesses. Brought to the community by the Sapperton Business Association and its partners, the festival is coordinated and run entirely by local volunteers. East Columbia Street is shut down from Braid Street all the way to Sherbrooke Street and the community is filled with music, entertainers, contests, food, information booths, prize draws, vendors and more. All proceeds from the festival are donated to the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation. This year, Sapperton Day will raise funds for critically needed equipment, research and innovation at Royal Columbian Hospital. The theme this year is Great Foods From Around the World, with more than a dozen food vendors, including Bella Cakes & Pastries, Dublin Castle, Gino’s Restaurant, Jamaican Me Juicy, Take 5 Café, Thai New West and Tin Lizzy Mini-Donuts.

There’s always been great music, kids activities and a whole lot of clowning around, but this year adds a new focus on food from around the world, too.

Burnaby Seniors’ Interagency Society’s


What is Burnaby Seniors’ Interagency Society? BSIS is a partnership of seniors, for-profit and non-profit organizations, and government service providers that collaborate to address the needs and issues of Burnaby seniors. BSIS members are committed to improving the quality of life of Burnaby seniors. Since 2003, BSIS has organized the Healthy Aging Series, a popular series of workshops which highlight important issues for seniors and gives them the tools and knowledge to be better equipped for this stage of life. This series addresses the need for education to the community which is timely, cost effective and accessible to all who live and work in Burnaby. In 2007, BSIS sponsored the Voices of Burnaby Seniors project which surveyed Burnaby seniors regarding their housing, transportation, health and support service needs. The VOBS is continuing its work on this project. The efforts of this group have been supported by the Ministry of Health. The group began as the BSSS which stood for Burnaby Seniors’ Services Society before changing its name to Burnaby Seniors’ Interagency Society. It has been in operation for over 25 years.

Hyack track champs Mihailho Stefanovic and Raquel Tjernagel of New Westminster were big winners at the B.C. high school track and field championships held in Langley last week. Stefanovic beat out Hyack teammate Bogdan Pavel to win the boys 110-metre hurdles. He crossed the finish line in 14.99 seconds, two-tenths of a second faster than Paval. Tjernagel captured the girls 200-metre final in 24.30 seconds beating out Zion Corrales-Nelson of Burnaby’s St. Thomas More Collegiate. In the 400 metres, the results were reversed with Corrales-Nelson winning in 54.94 and Tjernagel finishing in 55.45. New West’s boys 4x100 metre relay team came second in 44.32, finishing behind STM (43.23). Stefanovic and Pavel were joined on the team by Ethan Strome and Simon Rokeby.

Man plucked from Fraser River at the Quay Grant Granger

David Cobb had an unusual wakeup alarm go off early Thursday morning. Cobb was asleep in the master’s cabin of the Chief Skugaid, a 100-year-old working vessel he has docked alongside the Westminster Quay— which he will be moving soon because he is being kicked out by the city—when he heard a man yelling, “Help me! Save me!” Cobb rubbed his eyes and was dumbfounded because when he

video-online] looked out there was a man hanging from his moorage line “like a limp dishrag.” All Cobb could see of him in the cold, raging Fraser River torrent was the man’s hands and forearms and the top of his head. “I thought I was dreaming, and I still thought I was dreaming when I saw him,” said Cobb later Thursday. Cobb threw on his boiler suit, but didn’t even bother with boots, socks or cellphone,

although he did take his seaman’s knife so he could alter the lines when needed. He threw a lifesaver over the side along with about 50 feet of retrieval line. The man didn’t want to let go of the moorage line, but Cobb convinced him to, one arm at a time, release and duck under the lifesaver. Cobb told him if he didn’t he wouldn’t last long just holding on because the river was likely going at least six knots. “I know it’s impossible to row against it,” said Cobb. Cobb managed to maneuvre the man to a ladder by the dock but his strength was SHANE MACKICHAN/CONTRIBUTED

A man was saved by the captain of the Chief Skugaid, after plunging into the Fraser River last Thursday morning.

too sapped for him to climb up. “He’s very lucky to be alive. I’m not suggesting anybody else would have done any more and any less, it just happened the Chief happened to be where it was, he would have been swept out into the river,” said Cobb. “He was virtually a goner even here. Credit to him, he had a tremendous

desire to live. He didn’t give up, he hung on tenaciously.” Eventually, Cobb was able to get a security harness onto the man before fire crews, as well as the police with their marine vessel arrived on the scene about 15 minutes after it all began. They managed to pull the man out of the water and take him to hospital where

A one-stop shop for living well Fair is a great opportunity to get connected with all you need to stay healthy and engaged in the community It’s that time again, as the fun and informative Healthy Aging Fair returns to Lougheed Town Centre on June 8, offering a chance for seniors and their families to learn about services and options available in their community. Visitors will find a “one-stop shop” where they can get information on living well and staying healthy as we age. Many who come out to the fair find it valuable because, while there are a lot of services available in the community, they’re not always easily accessible. This year there will be 30 organizations showcasing their products and services for seniors, including transportation services, seniors’ housing providers, home accessibility solutions, and health support services. The fair is organized by the Burnaby Seniors’ Interagency Society, and has continued to grow in scope each year. This year’s fair will feature some great entertainment, including a drum group, singers, a magician and a laughter yoga practitioner. There will also be prize draws, free give-aways and a chance to win a flatscreen TV. The fair is sponsored by the Mulberry Retirement Residence, the NewsLeader, the City of Burnaby and Lougheed Town Centre. The fair runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., is being held in the centre court and lower mall. For more information, visit

NDP critic suggests price to accept oil pipeline $2.50 per barrel offer might sway communities: Stewart Jeff Nagel Black Press

A federal NDP MP predicts Kinder Morgan will have to offer B.C. and affected communities hundreds of millions of dollars a year if it wants its Trans Mountain oil pipeline twinning to be seriously considered. Kennedy Stewart, the federal NDP’s science and technology critic, said he expects the company to make a

low-ball offer to satisfy the B.C. government’s demand for a share of benefits to compensate for the risk. The BurnabyDouglas MP estimates Kinder Morgan stands to earn $5 per barrel of oil it transports, so company profits on the 890,000-barrel-per-day dual pipelines could top $1.5 billion a year. An offer to B.C. of a few cents per barrel shipped for a provincial benefits fund supporting first nations, affected communities and cleanup response

measures would be far too low, Stewart said. But he said a much more generous figure would have to be considered. “If Kinder Morgan said $2.50 a barrel – half of the revenue would go to the province – you would take that back to the community and talk to the community about it,” Stewart said. It’s one of the first suggestions from the ranks of pipeline opponents that a sufficiently attractive offer could trump environmental worries. “I’m against this project. But I think you always have to keep your mind open when you’re looking at economics and

then go back to your community with particular offers.” Stewart said he didn’t pick the $2.50 figure – he says it arose through conversations with his constituents, who are seeking a series of committments from Kinder Morgan, including assurances that no homes will be expropriated, that temporary foreign workers won’t build the pipeline and that no construction will begin without local referenda. Stewart noted he’s not in any position to negotiate, adding re-elected Premier Christy Clark will have to decide what price is fair. “This is where this conversation is heading – how much does Kinder Morgan have to pay to put this pipeline through communities.” Ben West, a ForestEthics campaigner opposed to transport of bitumen from the Alberta oil sands, was surprised by Stewart’s comments. “There is no amount of money that would make this a good idea,” West said. He said the environmental risk of a spill outweights any amount of financial compensation. “The impact on our coast is too great and the potential impact on our economy if there was a spill is too great.” West called the notion a “non-starter” because he doubts Kinder Morgan would ever offer anywhere near $2.50 a barrel. Asked about the company’s plans to ensure Trans Mountain’s expansion benefits B.C., senior project director Greg Toth called B.C.’s demand for a fair share a “government-togovernment” question. He said local and regional benefits will come from the jobs building and operating the new pipeline.
