New Westminster is giving itself powers to help retain heritage homes. But it still won’t be enough to do anything for homes like the Edward Riddell House at 221 Third Ave. in Queen’s Park that was demolished earlier this month. On Monday, city council was considering whether to create a bylaw that would give the city the power to temporarily withhold approval of demolition, building or development permits for properties on the city’s heritage register. Heritage planner Julie Schueck said she thought the city already had those rights under the provincial Local Government Act but discovered in discussions with city lawyers that council needed the appropriate bylaws in order to enact those powers. Schueck said the change will give the city time to talk to owners about retention of the homes, or to make sure the changes planned are in keeping with the neighbourhood’s heritage. see heRITAGe, A4

Parking problem has pet shop barking mad Mario Bartel

photo@newwestnewsleader.com

A pet supply store on Ovens Street is barking mad about the lack of curbside parking in front of their business. Steven Robson of Glenbrook Pet Supply says two nearby construction projects have converged with the completion of the Eight West condo development to shut out customers from being able to park. Crews and trucks working on a sewer line and a nearby hydro substation are taking up slots, as well as condo residents who don’t have spaces in the building’s parkade. Robson says that’s hurting him at the cash register, as his customers head to

other nearby pet supply stores that offer ample parking. “We’re at our wits end,” said Robson. He’s especially frustrated because the problem persists despite a two-hour parking time limit during daytime hours on the block immediately in front of his business. But Dave Cole, the City of New Westminster’s manager of engineering and operations, says there’s only so much bylaw officers can do. “It’s really congested there and I understand it’s frustrating,” said Cole, who responded to complaints from Robson by having signs installed reminding motorists that the parking slots in that stretch of Ovens are for

Steven Robson says construction projects on his block and a lack of enforcement is making it difficult for his customers to get to his business.

patrons of the businesses, which also include a wellness salon and animal hospital.

Bylaw officers are also dispatched to mark tires but by the time they return to check if

parked vehicles have overstayed the time limit, the cars have moved or left the area. “I can’t stop people from parking there for two hours,” said Cole. Robson contends it can take hours from his initial complaint before he sees a bylaw officer pass by. His admonitions to the construction crews to keep the spaces free have also fallen on deaf ears. “I’m not trying to cause problems,” said Robson. “If my business is being affected and nobody is here to help, what else am I supposed to do?” Just be patient, suggests Cole. “These construction projects don’t last forever.”

District hires familiar number cruncher Substantial savings by sharing services with other districts Grant Granger

ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

The New Westminster school district has gone to a familiar face to help get its finances back on track. The district has appointed former assistant secretary treasurer Sheldon Lee as its director of finance to assist secretary treasurer/assistant superintendent Al Balanuik. However, he will cost less than what the district had budgeted for finding someone to provide accounting and financial services to the district, which has been plagued with deficits during the last decade. Lee, a certified management accountant, will continue to provide the same services to two other districts in the

province—Vancouver Island West based in Gold River and Central Coast in Bella Coola. “He’s an exemplary choice,” said board chair Michael Ewen. “He’s recognized around the province as someone who understands all the nuances. In a number of ways he gets the true budget scenario … As well as somebody knows the district, he had been doing some consulting work with us to help us find out where the budget is and where it went wrong.” Ewen said when the director of finance position was posted, Lee came to the district and said he could do the job on about a halftime basis. “It will be a considerable savings,” said Ewen. He pointed out Lee knows New Westminster’s people and systems “because he developed

a lot of them, and he will be coming back with some new ideas as well as some old ideas that were never implemented.” Lee, said Ewen, developed a system where the accountants and auditors didn’t have to come into the office. “It will have an immediate impact and savings in the budget so it’s really quite exciting.” Balanuik has been operating in his dual role since Brian Sommerfeldt left to “pursue other opportunities” as secretary treasurer in March after going on sick leave in February. Facing a multi-million deficit, the New Westminster board of education recently made several staff cuts to its 2013-14 budget, and is working with the province to figure out ways to pay off deficits from its 2011-12 and 2012-13 budgets.

He also noted the city will be meeting with All Vision and its media buyers to prevent similar occurrences. The Khalsa Diwan Society in New Westminster paid $2,000 for the sign, said a CTV News story.

“We believe it’s time to really put the pressure on the Indian government to send the message that we have not forgotten the genocide,” Singh said. “We stand with the victims, and we still demand justice 29 years later.” The society insisted it wasn’t a call for revenge, but a plea for justice because there are some perpetrators who haven’t been held responsible. According to CTV, city officials confirmed they had received complaints about the sign.

Heritage districts might not fly ⫸

It would also allow the city to withhold a demolition permit until the owner produces appropriate plans for the home. The city recently incurred criticism for allowing the demolition of the Edward Riddell House. Schueck, however, said the city had spent two months talking to the owner but no solution could be found, so the new bylaws wouldn’t have made any difference in this case. “To further delay when we had to go over every possible scenario it didn’t

make sense, but [the bylaw changes] could be beneficial in other cases,” said Schueck. “We always have to be balanced between the rights of the property owner and the rights of the community.” In March, council authorized Schueck to pursue establishing four heritage conservation areas with “unique and identifiable historic characteristics” in the city. Houses in those districts would have stricter regulations placed upon them and require renovations to have an alteration permit that is reviewed

by the heritage commission before proceeding. But Schueck said Monday that it’s likely all of them will have to be abandoned because the vast majority of homeowners in those areas are balking at the designation. She is baffled because some of those who have criticized the city for not protecting 221 Third Ave. are owners of “lovely, old homes” that don’t want

heritage restrictions placed on their house. “I look at them and say, ‘What do you want me to do?’ ” said Schueck. The four areas that were proposed for protection were Bent Court in Uptown, Ash Street/Gloucester in Brow of the Hill, Wood Street in Queensborough, and the Manitoba/Peele Street area east of Tipperary Park. twitter.com/lonegrangerbnw

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Holiday relief

LAST WEEK:

The Canadian dollar is sinking. Gas prices have been going up for the past month. Banks are making noise about raising mortgage rates. The housing market is cooling. The weather seems changeable on the hour. It must be summer. This coming Canada Day holiday weekend is the traditional start of vacation season. Time to get away from it all. And with the ever-increasing gloom and doom that seems to drain our optimism and energy at a quickening pace, it’s never been more imperative to tune out and step back. At least for a stretch. Getting away from the workplace, turning down the busyness of our lives is an important change to routine. It reduces anxiety and stress, allows us a chance to recharge, maybe even refocus. Holidays make for happier, more motivated employees. But Canadian holiday entitlements lag behind those enjoyed by workers in many other countries. We get a minimum of 10 working days off depending on the province and tenure of employment. That’s supplemented by five-10 public statutory holidays, like Canada Day. Australian workers get 20 working days off, plus 10 paid public holidays. Brazilians enjoy 22 working days off, plus a 33 percent premium on top of their regular pay. Workers in Denmark get 25 work days off plus an additional nine public holidays. German workers get four weeks off plus nine-13 public holidays. In Finland, the minimum mandated holiday time is 30 days. Even workers in developing countries like India are granted 12 work days a year for holiday. But in the United States there’s absolutely no legal provision for mandated holiday time. Employees are completely at the mercy of their employer. Canadians may not feel we get enough holiday, but at least we get something.

Cabinet rookies handed hot files VICTORIA – There are nine new faces in Premier Christy Clark’s cabinet, seven of them elected to the B.C. legislature for the first time on May 14. They have been handed some of the hottest problems, and Clark’s marching orders in “mandate letters” for each ministry. And this is the start of a four-year term, when unpopular reforms are attempted. Take Amrik Virk, the former RCMP inspector from Surrey who’s suddenly in charge of advanced education. His mandate includes: “Review the student loan program to make recommendations for improvement to ensure the loan program is meeting the needs of today’s students.” Virk must also set targets to “match the skills we need with the skills we are graduating” and require post-secondary schools to “ensure student seats are being filled.” B.C. can’t afford to keep cranking out university grads with $50,000 in debt and no job prospects in a system that’s subsidized 65 per cent.

organizations, but do it with no new money. All ministers have strict instructions to balance their lean budgets and take part in the latest “core review” to identify government functions that can be sold, delegated or shut down. New Minister of International Trade Richmond’s Teresa Wat has to find a way to continue the growth of lumber and other exports to China, India and elsewhere on the Pacific Rim. On top of that, the alwaysdelicate softwood lumber agreement with the U.S. expires in three years. The last major eruption on that front was in 2009, when B.C. cut stumpage rates for remote coastal areas to give communities much-needed employment. The Americans were livid, just as they were with our beetle-kill harvesting efforts. And of course, the U.S.-directed environmental movement continues to target Canadian industries. Third-term MLA John Rustad gets aboriginal relations, with specific instructions to deal with gas and perhaps oil pipelines through his Nechako Lakes constituency.

please reConsider The City of New Westminster and the New West police department have chosen to shut down New Westminster’s medical cannabis dispensary, N.I.C.E. (New Innovations in Cannabis Education) which was operating on 12th Street for a few months.     I urge the mayor, councillors and police to educate

themselves on the medical benefits of cannabis and encourage a public forum to discuss this.     Cannabis has many medical uses, including treatment for nausea for those going through chemotherapy for cancer treatment. I am only able to speak to the use of cannabis for chronic pain. It is very effective and has no risk for toxicity or overdose. The same cannot be said for the narcotic pharmaceutical prescriptions which are prescribed for chronic pain. Having access to medical cannabis gives a better quality of life to many. Medical cannabis dispensaries also offer alternative delivery methods such as edibles. People want an alternative to years of harmful pharmaceutical use.   The Vancouver Police and City of Vancouver choose not to close their dispensaries. New Westminster could do the same. Is this really the kind of “crime” that we want our police and politicians focusing our tax dollars on? Isn’t it time we move forward with compassion on this issue? Shelley Madsen New Westminster

ndp’s failure unsurprising Re: What ails the NDP? Plenty (BC Views, NewsLeader, June 19) With interest I read Tom Fletcher’s article. Generally, the views expressed are reflective of the lack of understanding the NDP has for a creative economic vision for B.C. social policy can only be supported by a strong economic policy. It was curious that during the election the NDP’s slogan was “Change for the Better, One Practical Step at a Time.” For a party which viewed so many things wrong with the Liberal track record to suggest it would be fixed by taking one practical step at a time smacks of a bureaucratic approach to governing. It seems the NDP would not tackle the myriad of issues they thought were needed anytime soon. Spending much time on policy rather than vision and opportunities, it’s no wonder the electorate was not attracted to the NDP. John Vegt New Westminster

houses in New Westminster has just been demolished. The city has to be held accountable. Referring to attempts to save the house, city heritage planner Julie Schueck said, “Everything we looked at wasn’t going to work.” My response is, I’m sorry, that’s not good enough; as heritage planner it’s your job to make it work. I can’t help getting the feeling that the city did not do all it could have done to save this house. What is worse, I don’t think they had the interest or the will. The city let this house go without using their leverage or making the effort it would have taken to find a creative solution. As another commentator on this issue said, when the city lets the Riddell House go, nothing is safe. The Riddell House was a building that everybody knew and loved. Thousands of people took pleasure admiring it and its gardens as they walked or drove by 221 Third Ave. This is why there is such an outcry over its loss. Behind Schueck’s quote is the inference that heritage homes in Queen’s Park and other areas of the city are not really that important. There are many people in our community who disagree. Queen’s Park is a West Coast Canadian house museum. Our heritage houses and buildings are what make the city unique. If anything good can come from this demolition, it is that a line was crossed with the Riddell House. The city can’t allow this to happen again. What many New West taxpayers want is progressive heritage awareness and planning at city hall to save the best of New West’s heritage. And this is a long ways from what we have now.

Re: Separating the city’s heart and head (Column, NewsLeader, June 14) Chris Bryan hit the nail on the head when he mentioned Downtown is “the seat of romance, and you hope it will one day be home to more great restaurants, cafés and a vibrant street life.” I often think of Downtown being, in hockey terms, one of the original six, where the emotional bond or connection is developed because of what they meant to my parents growing up, the rich history, players like Bobby Orr who changed the face of hockey, or the Stanley Cups raised in past years. Regardless of a bad season the team’s fans will still cheer them on because of past reputations they had or past successes. What I am challenging people to do is to visit the Uptown businesses that are proud to call Uptown their home and experience the bond these businesses have with their customers, the outstanding customer service they offer, and the vested interest each business has in the community. I’m confident you will look at Uptown differently and maybe the “brother you tolerate” outlook you have on Uptown will shift to thinking of it “being that friend who has your back” or viewing us as the backbone of New Westminster. There is plenty of rich and diverse history here, along with businesses that have thrived in Uptown for decades as well as businesses that have moved from Downtown to Uptown. Businesses like Cartwright Jewelers, Galloway’s, Harry Minuk Shoes, the Waffle House, Classic Beauty Salon, Bank of Montreal (BMO), CIBC and National Meats have been providing exceptional customer service and quality products in New Westminster for decades and will continue to do so for many more.

Queensborough plan taking shape Grant Granger

ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

A draft community plan for Queensborough calls for more land to be designated for employment uses compared to the previous one adopted by city council in 1995. The new plan, which is to help guide the community’s development until 2041, also calls for celebrating the intersection of Ewen Avenue and Howes Street as the main entry point to the neighbourhood. A June 17 report to council said while the plan would increase land for commercial and industrial use, it would also seek to improve the transition from heavy industry to less intensive uses such as residential and shopping. The main challenge, said the summary, is mending divides in the community created by major roads such as Highway 91A and Derwent Way. To address this, it identifies two main entry points (Howes/ Ewen for residential; Howes north of the highway for commercial) and five other intersections for streetscape enhancements. Some of the plan’s aspirations include upgrading Ewen to connect the eastern and western portions, enhance local

The draft Queensborough community plan seeks to define several of the areas based upon their uses, and to design in the future so that the identity of the areas are reinforced.

shopping on the south side and find better ways to connect pedestrians and cyclists across highways and truck routes. The plan views Ewen as Queensborough’s commercial Main Street and suggests creating that type of feel on the avenue. It sees the area around the Starlight Casino as potentially including a hotel and other destination entertainment facilities. It defines residential areas such as Ewen Avenue, Port Royal and East Queensborough as multi-family along with compact lot and float home development. The Queensborough

industrial area would “provide an opportunity for continued intensive industrial development, which, in some cases, could include a waterfront focus,” said the plan. A mixed employment zone provides places for “ultralight” industrial and commercial land—but no retail—to create a transition between heavier industrial and residential areas. The North Arm-Bay area across from Poplar Island would preserve aquatic and wildlife habitat while allowing a trail and lookout for the public to use. Please see ’Boro resideNts, a17

n 2011, New Westminster had a population of 65,976. By 2021, the population is projected to increase to about 76,000, and by 2031, the population is projected to increase to about 88,000. Immigration is a significant driver of population growth. Between 2006 and 2011, increases to the immigrant population comprised 61.3% of total population growth in New Westminster. New Westminster is becoming increasingly diverse. In 2011, 33.4% of the population was comprised of immigrants, with 21.0% of immigrants having less than five years of Canadian residency. In both 2010 and 2012, about 5% of Government Assisted Refugees entering British Columbia settled in New Westminster. In 2011, 34.8% of the population reported visible minority status and 3.2% of the population reported aboriginal identity. In 2011, 32.8% of the population reported a mother tongue other than English or French. Of this population, the top five mother tongues were: Chinese (Cantonese or Mandarin) (19.5%), Filipino (Tagalog)

(11.9%), Punjabi (11.8%), Spanish (5.1%) and Korean (4.8%) In response, a Welcoming and Inclusive New West (WIN) Community Partnership Table has been formed with the following objectives under the three areas of inclusive workplaces, welcoming spaces and receptive communities: • To increase awareness of the needs, opportunities and contributions of new immigrants. • To build intercultural relations and mutual trust.

“The PST is an abysmal tax and as British Columbians, we simply can’t settle for it,” said John Winter, the BC Chamber’s president and CEO. “This tax stunts business growth in B.C., scares away Canadian or international businesses that might come grow jobs here, and mires everybody in red tape and nonsensical rules. Frankly, it’s an embarrassing tax.” At the BC Chamber’s Annual General Meeting and Conference (May 23 to 25), the province-wide network of Chambers and the 36,000 businesses they represent called for the province to launch discussions on the creation of a made-in-B.C. value-added tax (VAT).

B.C.’s PST regime harms the province’s ability to attract new businesses by slamming them with taxes on start-up costs that they wouldn’t face in more competitive tax jurisdictions such as Alberta or Ontario. Moreover, taxing business equipment discourages B.C.’s businesses from investing in the technologies they need to innovate and boost B.C.’s worrisome productivity record. Winter added that there’s no time to lose in fixing B.C.’s broken tax system. “We can’t wait for the PST to do more damage before we act,” Winter said. “We have to put the HST debacle behind us, implement some quick fixes to the PST as a stop-gap solution, and build a made-in-B.C. tax solution that will grow B.C.’s prosperity – not undermine it.”

n 2011, New Westminster had a population of 65,976. By 2021, the population is projected to increase to about 76,000, and by 2031, the population is projected to increase to about 88,000. Immigration is a significant driver of population growth. Between 2006 and 2011, increases to the immigrant population comprised 61.3% of total population growth in New Westminster. New Westminster is becoming increasingly diverse. In 2011, 33.4% of the population was comprised of immigrants, with 21.0% of immigrants having less than five years of Canadian residency. In both 2010 and 2012, about 5% of Government Assisted Refugees entering British Columbia settled in New Westminster. In 2011, 34.8% of the population reported visible minority status and 3.2% of the population reported aboriginal identity. In 2011, 32.8% of the population reported a mother tongue other than English or French. Of this population, the top five mother tongues were: Chinese (Cantonese or Mandarin) (19.5%), Filipino (Tagalog)

(11.9%), Punjabi (11.8%), Spanish (5.1%) and Korean (4.8%) In response, a Welcoming and Inclusive New West (WIN) Community Partnership Table has been formed with the following objectives under the three areas of inclusive workplaces, welcoming spaces and receptive communities: • To increase awareness of the needs, opportunities and contributions of new immigrants. • To build intercultural relations and mutual trust.

“The PST is an abysmal tax and as British Columbians, we simply can’t settle for it,” said John Winter, the BC Chamber’s president and CEO. “This tax stunts business growth in B.C., scares away Canadian or international businesses that might come grow jobs here, and mires everybody in red tape and nonsensical rules. Frankly, it’s an embarrassing tax.” At the BC Chamber’s Annual General Meeting and Conference (May 23 to 25), the province-wide network of Chambers and the 36,000 businesses they represent called for the province to launch discussions on the creation of a made-in-B.C. value-added tax (VAT).

B.C.’s PST regime harms the province’s ability to attract new businesses by slamming them with taxes on start-up costs that they wouldn’t face in more competitive tax jurisdictions such as Alberta or Ontario. Moreover, taxing business equipment discourages B.C.’s businesses from investing in the technologies they need to innovate and boost B.C.’s worrisome productivity record. Winter added that there’s no time to lose in fixing B.C.’s broken tax system. “We can’t wait for the PST to do more damage before we act,” Winter said. “We have to put the HST debacle behind us, implement some quick fixes to the PST as a stop-gap solution, and build a made-in-B.C. tax solution that will grow B.C.’s prosperity – not undermine it.”

How ‘O Canada’ came to be

CANADA D Y

“O Canada” was proclaimed Canada’s national anthem on July 1, 1980, 100 years after it was first sung on June 24, 1880. The music was composed by Calixa Lavallée, a well-known composer; French lyrics to accompany the music were written by Sir Adolphe-Basile Routhier. By the time the World War broke out in 1914, “O Canada” was the best known patriotic song in Canada, edging out “The Maple leaf Forever” and others less well-known today. In 1927, an official version of “O Canada” was authorized for singing in Canadian schools and for use at public functions. In 1942, Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King, was asked if he did not think this an appropriate time for proclaiming a national anthem. He said since it was a time of war there were more pressing concerns. In 1980, Secretary of State Francis Fox presented a bill, similar to previously presented bills on “O Canada”, fulfilling a promise made earlier in the House that “O Canada” be proclaimed as Canada’s national anthem as soon as possible in the centenary of the first rendition. The bill was unanimously accepted June 27; Royal assent was given the same day.

LIFENET saves lives in race against time Allows paramedics to transmit important electrocardiogram information to RCH doctors to ensure patients get the best care at the best place

I

n the race against time to save the life of a heart attack victim, Dr. Gerald Simkus’ medical team at Royal Columbian Hospital is like the pit crew ready to spring into action. Each member—including emergency room physicians, nurses, a cardiologist, cardiology and lab technicians, cath lab nurses and technologists, and sometimes a perfusionist— has a specific role to help give the incoming patient their best chance to make it to the checkered flag. And just as in-car telemetry gives engineers and mechanics a good idea of what is ailing a race car before it pulls in for repairs or adjustments, the LIFENET system communicates vital information from the paramedics attending the patient to the team awaiting their arrival at RCH. Except there’s a lot more at stake than a champagne shower on the winner’s podium. “Without rapid treatment the risk for death as a result of the heart attack increases,” says Dr. Simkus, the program medical director of cardiac sciences for Fraser Health. LIFENET uses cellular technology to allow paramedics to alert doctors at RCH that they are incoming with a heart attack patient and transmit important electrocardiogram data directly to the assembling acute cardiac ABOVE: Helen Elliott (left) STEMI Project Manager for Fraser Health joins Dr. Gerald Simkus, Program Medical Director, Cardiac Sciences, intervention team so they know what sort Fraser Health and Randy Hansen, BC Ambulance Service Superintendent in the back of an ambulance. of heart attack to expect.

A hard look at pay scale Jeff Nagel Black press

Metro Vancouver is conducting an extensive review of salaries for all management staff to determine if their pay levels are appropriate. It comes as the regional district released annual financial disclosures showing it paid out $142 million in pay and benefits to employees last year. Metro paid 369 employees more than $100,000 last year and some Metro directors have questioned whether pay levels are too high.

Chief administrative officer Carol Mason, who is leading the pay review as well as an ongoing restructuring at Metro, said the regional government is overdue for such an exercise. It last did one in 2008 but has a policy of reassessing pay levels every three years. “My early impression is I wouldn’t say we are overstaffed, but that’s part of the process we are going through,” Mason said. Salaries and duties for Metro’s non-union staff are being compared against similar positions in local cities over the next several months. Mason has ordered a freeze on new hiring until the review is complete. Metro board chair Greg

Moore said the aim is to “ensure we’re not too high or too low in the pay bands we have compared to other equivalent-type employment.” A finding that pay levels are too high and need to be decreased would be “very difficult” to apply to current staff who would likely be grandfathered, he said. In the past BC Hydro has poached many Metro engineers, putting upward pressure on those salaries to stay competitive. Local cities are also routinely raiding staff from each other or from Metro. Mason, who took over as CAO last fall after longtime CAO Johnny Carline retired, earns $270,000 a year.

Coun. Bill Harper told council June 17 if Queensborough does develop the way the city envisions, it will increase the industrial tax base. “It’s becoming more of a complete community.” Queensborough’s population, said the draft plan, is expected to go from 7,125 in 2011 to almost 15,000 by 2041, and the proportion of New Westminster residents living in the neighbourhood is expected to increase from 10.8 per cent to 14.5 in those 30 years.

“Queensborough is the only community in New Westminster that is expected to have an increase in the number of single detached dwellings. In other neighbourhoods almost every new single detached house replaces a demolished older unit. Single detached neighbourhoods are important to maintaining housing choice and community residential character. In Queensborough, such neighbourhoods make up the core of the community,” said the plan.

A final consultation process with the community on the draft plan, including a website survey, will be conducted over the summer. Detailed streetscape drawings for the changes will be prepared for council to see when it meets Aug. 26 and an open house will be held at the Queensborough Community Centre in September before it is finally adopted in October. The full plan is on the city’s website, www.newwestcity.ca, in the June 17 council agenda section.

Timbermen topple Salmonbellies two times

GREG SAKAKI/BLACK PRESS

New Westminster Salmonbellie Logan Schuss is highsticked by Nanaimo’s Graham Palmer during Sunday’s Western Lacrosse Association game at Nanaimo’s Frank Crane Arena. The game was won by the TImbermen 11-8.

A third-period collapse by the New Westminster Salmonbellies allowed the Nanaimo Timbermen to collect their second win in four days from them. The ’Bellies held a 7-5 lead after two periods in Nanaimo on Sunday before the T-Men scored five consecutive goals in the third to take an 11-8 victory from the visitors. It also followed on the heels of the Timbermen defeating the Salmonbellies 11-7 at Queen’s Park Arena on Thursday. That leaves New West in fifth place in the Western Lacrosse Association with a 4-6-1 record, just one point ahead of the Coquitlam Adanacs (4-6-0) and Nanaimo (4-7-0). The Burnaby Lakers (5-6-0) hold down the fourth and final playoff spot. Martin Cummings did his best in Nanaimo to spark the Salmonbellies with four goals on 12 shots. Logan Schuss had two goals and an assist while Alex Gajic and Keegan Bal, despite firing 11 shots on goal, had one each. Jordan McBride collected five assists while Tom Johnson had three. Last Thursday, Schuss had three goals and three assists while taking 13 shots with McBride getting three goals and two assists. Bal contributed two goals and three assists with singles going to Johnson, Cumming and Ilija Gajic. Schuss also scored three times on 10 shots and assisted on another in a 7-7 tie with the defending WLA champion Thunder in Langley on Wednesday. New West took a 5-3 lead into the third period, but Langley scored twice in

the last seven minutes to force overtime when neither team managed to score in the 10-minute extra period. Neither team managed to score on the powerplay with the ’Bellies being blanked in four opportunities and the Thunder in two. McBride leads New West in scoring with 43 points in 11 games while Schuss has 22 goals and 38 points in eight games.

Jr. ’Bellies continue roll The New Westminster Jr. Salmonbellies headed into this week in a tie for first place in points in the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League. The Salmonbellies downed the hometown Port Coquitlam Saints 12-8 Friday to improve to 12-4-0. Their 24 points are the same as the Coquitlam Adanacs (12-3-0) but New West has played one more game. The Saints actually had a 3-0 lead after the first period before the ’Bellies burst out with seven in the second period to just one for PoCo. Josh Byrne and Jeremy Bosher both scored three goals with Byrne adding two assists and Bosher one. Luke Gillespie had two goals and two assists while Kyle Dobbie scored twice and had a helper. Anthony Malcom and David Hammond had one each. The ’Bellies were playing host to the Burnaby Lakers (1-15) on Tuesday (8 p.m.) before the Adanacs come to Queen’s Park for a first-place showdown Saturday, 8 p.m. Nanaimo will be the visitors Sunday (5 p.m.).
