The Fraser Health Authority is recommending anyone who received dental work from Tung Sheng Wu in the practice he conducted out of his Burnaby home get tested for Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV. Wu, who also goes by the name David Wu, isn’t a registered dentist in British Columbia and the provincial College of Dental Surgeons (CDSBC) says he may have been practising illegally, possibly as far back as the 1990s. Following a woman’s complaint of poor treatment from Wu, the CDSBC hired a private investigator to conduct surveillance on his home and then obtained a court order to enter the home and stop Wu from practising. When CDSBC investigators and the RCMP entered the residence on May 29, they found a dental office in the bedroom and a “significant amount” of dental equipment that may not have been cleaned or sterilized properly or may not meet Health Canada standards. please see DENtIst, a12

Are banks doing enough? Many people with a low income or poor credit turn to payday lenders and pay high interest. Should banks do more to serve the poor?

B.C.’s rules for payday loans By law, payday lenders: • Must not charge fees totaling more than 23 per cent of the amount borrowed. • Must not charge for cash cards.

Shawna Reid believes her family’s financial situation would be better if she could do more business with her bank. As the head of a household with a tight income, the Burnaby mom bakes bread, buys in bulk, watches for sales and grows a veggie garden in summer. She’s on disability due to an anxiety disorder. Her husband was employed as a computer programmer, but has been out of work since crushing a vertebrae in his neck from a fall. A year ago he underwent surgery, from which he is still recovering. “His whole career line has been shut down for him,” says the Burnaby woman. “I’m lucky I’m in BC Housing or I’d be so screwed in this city.” With her disability pension and social services top-up for her kids, she receives just over $1,000 a month to live on. At this point they receive no disability payments for her husband. She’s had a bank account with BMO since she was 17 and a TD account for the last 10 years, but neither bank will give her an overdraft. “It’s not that I have bad credit,” she says, adding she avoids credit cards because of the fees involved. “It’s just that I don’t have any credit.” Reid takes payday loans

Is Cash Store Financial exploiting a loophole?

s y a d n u S r e m Sum re at Civic Squa

Chris Bryan NewsLeader

Sundays in August, 1:30-5pm

Despite the fact most provinces in Canada have introduced laws governing payday lenders, Acorn Canada has raised warning bells that some payday loan companies have developed a new product that seeks to bypass the rules. Cash Store Financial, which operates Cash Store and Instaloans outlets, has recently added a line of credit product which has raised concerns among regulators, poverty advocates and even from the Canadian Payday Loan Association (CPLA) (of which they are not a member). “It’s just a different name but they’re doing the same thing,” says Teresa Dettling of Acorn Canada. Cash Store and Instaloans, which has two outlets in New Westminster and five locations in Burnaby, offer a Mastercard that can be used in $200 increments up to $2,000. The interest rate is 40 per cent annually, and though that’s

likelihood a person will default. As well, payday loans cannot be used to improve a person’s credit score. “It doesn’t give the consumer a lot of flexibility,” he said. The advantage of the line of credit is that it gives a person a longer time frame to pay back the debt. Also, Cash Store says its line of credit allows people to build a positive credit history, and to that end has begun to offer a tiered interest arrangement that allows customers who pay on time to receive a declining interest rate. “They would have a credit score—that would make them bankable,” he said. “They would have rehabilitated their credit. The customer should be able to graduate to a mainstream bank.” Consumer Protection BC, which enforces the laws and licences payday lenders, is giving this new line of credit close scrutiny.

nowhere near the 60 per cent limit outlined in the Criminal Code, it’s much higher than most conventional credit and retail store cards’ rates of 10 to 30 per cent. What may come as a bigger surprise is the “monthly maintenance fee” for the card, which is $49.95. A representative of Cash Store Financial who spoke with the NewsLeader agreed the costs are high, but that it’s necessary as the customers they serve are a higher risk for defaulting on the debts. The company, he said, is moving away from payday loans with this line of credit product, and wants to position itself as a “bridge” for consumers between payday loans and mainstream banks. He cites concerns raised by the Bank of Canada regarding record levels of household debt, and the need to bring high-risk borrowers into the banking fold. Payday loans are restrictive, he said, as they must be paid back quickly, resulting in a higher

OPINION NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

ADRIAN RAESIDE:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Vanity lawns A lush green lawn, freshly mowed and without weeds, is something to behold. The outfield grass of a professional baseball park or the green on a championship golf course are part of sports lore and are not achieved without much care and effort. Such grass is also the stuff of great gardens, the blanket between floral beds. And in the suburbs, it is the stuff of status – not to mention, it can help the resale value of homes. Companies make millions of dollars a year selling tools and agents to those whose job or passion it is to maintain such stately presentations. But all that is compromised in the summer by the sun, and watering restrictions, such as those in Metro Vancouver. From June 1 to Sept. 30, sprinkling residential properties can only be done three days a week, 4 a.m. to 9 a.m., on odd or even numbered days. Yet some sprinklers are working overtime. After a record-dry July, some lawns are as green as they were in April, a stark contrast to the plots as golden as a Saskatchewan wheat field. The latter is pretty in its own right, and hardly needs to be mowed. Nor does it require any more water than what falls from the sky, benefitting reservoirs in times of moderation. These lawns deserve respect, as do their owners, for being responsible and following the rules. We much admire the manicured green yards, and the attention they require. But unless you are moving soon, they are a nod to vanity, and unnecessary. Groom within reason – mow, pull weeds, water when allowed. But for the most part, let nature take its course. —Maple Ridge News

South Fraser should go it alone Once again, south-of-theFraser transit users are being shafted by TransLink. The transportation agency, not well-loved in Surrey or Delta, announced it is scrapping a number of pass and discount programs, claiming this makes the system “more equitable.” Among the programs cut are FareSaver tickets, the books of 10 tickets which have been wellutilized by many transit users from south of the Fraser. TransLink says the discount programs will be replaced by discounts that will be available with the new Compass Card system, to be introduced later this year. The current discount programs end on Jan. 1, 2014. FareSaver ticket users have been getting a 21-per-cent discount in the past year, as the cost of fares rose while the FareSaver prices stayed the same. That discount will drop to 14 per cent with Compass Cards. It sounds fair on the surface. But it doesn’t add up when the

Frank Bucholtz impact of the three-zone fare system is added to the mix. Transit riders who get on the system in Surrey, Delta or Langley must pay for threezone travel to get to Vancouver. This applies even if they get on SkyTrain at Scott Road Station, just across the Fraser from New Westminster. The only other area of the region where three-zone fares apply is in the Tri-City and Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows areas. It is not coincidental that all areas subject to three-zone fares have the worst transit service TransLink collects an inordinate amount of fare money per passenger in Surrey, Delta and other three-zone communities.

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

Yet at the same time, it provides a level of service that is far below what is offered in Vancouver, New Westminster, Burnaby or Richmond. The difference between a one-zone and three-zone fare is substantial. To ride the bus or SkyTrain within Vancouver, where service is most frequent, it costs a transit rider (without any discounts for student, senior or child) $2.75. The same rider in Surrey, travelling to the edge of Vancouver at Joyce or Renfrew stations on SkyTrain, pays $5.50. Despite steady growth and a higher density in urban areas than Burnaby’s, transit service in Surrey is not being expanded. There is still no express bus service for Surrey riders across the Port Mann Bridge, as promised as a condition of the Port Mann Bridge becoming a toll bridge. And many bus users in Surrey frequently get passed by when waiting for a bus, and often wait up to half an hour to get on a bus at all.

This level of service and blatant discrimination against Surrey and Delta residents is completely unacceptable. People in this area are already contributing disproportionately to TransLink, through the higher fares, and being forced to buy more gas (and thus pay more gas tax). TransLink property taxes in this area are not discounted in any way, despite a lower level of service. While a referendum on new sources of funding for TransLink is scheduled for some time early in 2014, Surrey, Delta and White Rock residents need to ask themselves if they want to continue paying disproportionately. While few politicians even want to talk about it, we likely would be better off with our own regional transit system south of the Fraser, as long as it retains good links with the rest of the system.

COMMENT

Enclave 1: 80% Sold Enclave 2: Now Released

MP, writer working together wonders prof Burnaby-Douglas MP Kennedy Stewart and letter writer Victor Finberg seem to be working in unison. Mr. Stewart’s latest brochure to householders and Mr. Finberg’s letters both deal with climate change in about the same manner. Mr. Finberg’s suggestion was quiet revealing, because he had previously presented himself to be a ‘student of science.’ As it turned out, he referred readers to a lecture by Sir John Ralston Saul, straight global warming propaganda. Any reader should have been tipped off in the first paragraph of one of Mr. Finberg’s letters, though. He tells us that our offspring will inherit a “poisoned Earth!” Even uneducated people know by now that CO2 is not a poison gas on this planet but a basic building block without which none of our life could exist, I and Mr. Finberg included. It seems difficult for Mr. Finberg to comprehend, but all so-called global warming deniers whose work I have read agree that the climate changes. This includes Thomas Harris who had another 30 minute slot on CKNW, Sunday, July 28. He and others do not accept, however, that Mother Nature pays attention to people selling one another carbon credits. Wishing to make a difference our first action must, therefore, be to discover what it is that triggers change! Science is based on facts. All International Panel on Climate Change data show that their computer modules, Mr. Stewart, Mr. Finberg and Kyoto had it wrong. Mr. Stewart still laments that the Harper Government has decided to ditch Kyoto. He never explained how Kyoto could have ever accomplished anything without the participation of the USA, Russia, China, Brazil, India and all those others... Most global-warming/ climate-change concerns of Mr. Finberg were actually addressed in

Because of the large number of complaints I remain concerned but don’t know what else can be done. Garth Evans Burnaby

Dentist put clients at risk ⫸

They also found almost 1,500 client files, many of them allegedly word-of-mouth referrals from within the Chinese-Canadian community. “Because Mr. Wu was not a licensed dentist and because he was not following the infection control procedures expected of a licensed dentist, we believe there is sufficient risk of exposure to blood borne viruses to recommend testing for all clients,” said Dr. Michelle Murti, the medical health officer for Fraser Health Authority. The CDSBC is also urging Wu’s patients to see a real dentist for proper treatment. “The material seized from Mr. Wu’s residence does not come close to meeting our standards for infection control,” said Dr. Peter Stevenson-Moore, the president of the CDSBC. “He put his clients’ health at risk for his own gain.”

The Vrbas said BC Hydro suggested they read their meter to compare the numbers with previous bills, but neither woman knows what the series of numbers and codes that cycle on the LCD displays of the bank of meters installed in their building’s utility room mean. They were also advised to call in an electrician to see if there were problems with their own electrical system. “BC Hydro said it’s not their problem,” said Sandra. “They refused to accept it could be the smart meter.” Simi Heer, a spokeswoman for BC Hydro, Simi Heer, BC Hydro said similar A lot of people don’t complaints of quite understand how the system works. uncharacteristic bill increases prompted a test of about 250 meters, which are manufactured by Itron Inc., of Liberty Lake, Wash., by a lab. All of them were found to be working properly and giving accurate readings, said Heer. She said billing anomalies could be due to human error in estimating hydro consumption as some of the 1.8 million smart meters installed so far haven’t yet been connected to the network. The meter could have been misread or an estimate that was too low on a previous bill could result in a “catch-up” spike on the next bill. Heer said that’s what happened to the Vrbas. “A lot of people don’t quite understand how the system works,” she said. Heer said the BC Hydro customers whose smart meters have been connected to the network so far can access their power consumption data online to monitor their usage on an hour-by-hour basis almost in real time. If customers are still concerned about their bill, Heer said they should call. “We try to work with each customer to help them figure out what is happening with their bill.” Meanwhile the Vrbas are vowing to pay close attention to future bills.

Vet who fought for redress passes away Mario Bartel

photo@burnabynewsleader.com

Gim Wong fought to join the Royal Canadian Air Force in the Second World War despite his Chinese heritage. Then he fought for redress of the Canadian government’s Head Tax. Wong will be remembered Friday at a service at Willingdon Church after the Burnaby resident lost the fight for his life on July 29. He was 90 years old. Wong was born on Dec. 28, 1922 to Chinese immigrant parents, the eldest son of seven children. His family eked out a living working in canneries, farms and laundries, often earning half what Caucasian workers were paid. To help support his family, Wong started working at farms in Richmond when he was 13 years old, bringing home about 60 cents for every 12-hour shift. Discrimination against Chinese immigrants at the time pretty much ensured

Wong’s family would never break the poverty cycle. They weren’t considered Canadian citizens. They were barred from occupations like doctors, lawyers, registered nurses, teachers or police officers. “The horrible thing was school was out of the question,” Wong told the NewsLeader a few years ago. “A university degree was useless for a Chinese.” Wong was undeterred. He tinkered in a garage, constructing an airplane engine from a 1928 Ford Model A. He flew model planes. He dreamed of joining the air force. “It was like being an astronaut in those days,” said Wong. But when he was old enough to try, the door was shut in his face. Time and again his application was rejected because of his ethnicity. “They always looked at Chinese and any Asiatics as being inferior physically,” said Wong. But he persisted and eventually he got an interview with an RCAF

KARI MEDIG/NEWSLEADER FILE

Gim Wong was 82 years old when he rode his motorcycle across Canada to appeal for an apology for the Chinese Head Tax.

recruiting officer who assigned him to boot camp in Edmonton where the discrimination continued,

from his fellow recruits. Wong didn’t let it bother him, focusing his energies on becoming a gunner.

“There was a war on. I wanted to do my share,” he said. Wong graduated in 1944 as a sergeant and was asked to retrain as a flight engineer to serve in the Pacific war. Wong excelled in his new role and he was commissioned as a pilot officer in March, 1945. But he never saw action. After cooling his heels in the reserves for three months and working at a gas station, the Americans dropped atomic bombs on Japan and ended the war on the eve of Wong’s scheduled deployment to Calcutta. Wong said he was disappointed. “It’s almost like saving a lot of money to buy a car and they say you can’t drive it,” he recalled. But the mechanical aptitude Wong honed in his air force training served him well. He raced cars at the old Digney Speedway in South Burnaby and he opened his own auto body shop. But Wong never

forgot the hardships and discrimination he and his family endured in his younger days. When Wong was 82 he rode a motorbike across Canada with his son Jeffrey, as part of a campaign to get an apology for the Head Tax that had been paid by his parents and other Chinese immigrants. When they reached Ottawa, Wong pleaded his case at the House of Commons. A year later, on June 22, 2006, Prime Minister Stephen Harper made that apology in Parliament. Wong was in the gallery. “You feel like you’re being recognized as more Canadian,” said Wong. “These things people take for granted, and we had to fight for every inch of it.” In 2012, his efforts were recognized when he received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. • Wong’s funeral service will be held at Willingdon Church, 4812 Willingdon Ave., Friday at noon. —files from Wanda Chow and Chris Bryan

Sales still strong at Larco’s Morgan Crossing By Kerry Vital

Morgan Crossing is an amazing pedestrian-friendly village that you don’t often see in the Lower Mainland. With tons of fantastic stores, spacious homes located right in the heart of the village and almost any amenity you can think of within walking distance, it comes as no surprise that there is only a limited number of condominium suites left. “We still have a great selection available, but sales will

be wrapping up soon,” says Bryan Woolley of Fingerprint Strategies. “The response has been tremendous.” Built by Larco Investments, Morgan Crossing is wellknown as a gathering place for residents from all over Metro Vancouver. Buyers from nearly every city in the region have been looking to purchase one of the homes there. The village has shopping, dining, community events and amenities right outside your front door, including Winners, Town Shoes, Everything Wine and Thrifty Foods. You’ll also be

able to fit in a workout at the Steve Nash Sports Club. “People fall in love with the village,” Woolley says. “It’s what sets Morgan Crossing apart.” Homes at Morgan Crossing start at $275,900 including GST and transition taxes for a two-bedroom suite. For more information, visit www.morgancrossing.ca or call 604-5821336. The presentation centre is open daily except Fridays between noon and 5 p.m.

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

Submitted photos

Intracorp’s River Park Place will soon join Richmond’s Oval Village neighbourhood, above, where buyers can take advantage of all the amazing amenities the neighbourhood has to offer, including leisure and recreation, shopping and dining. Among the features you’ll find in your new home are stainless-steel appliances and chic and modern cabinetry, above right.

The new luxury at River Park Place By Kerry Vital

Richmond’s Oval Village is welcoming sophisticated luxury to the neighbourhood with Intracorp’s River Park Place. The new condominium and townhome development is already garnering buzz. “These homes stand out from the crowd,” says Intracorp’s Director of Sales Barrett Sprowson. “The response so far has been

really positive.” The project will encompass three buildings and over 500 homes. Over 30 homes were sold last month. The one-, two- and three-bedroom homes are spacious and inviting, with floorplans ranging from 465 to over 2,000 square feet. “These floorplans make sense to a wide range of people,” says Sprowson, adding that buyers so far have included downsizers and young couples looking to move away from renting or their starter home. “These homes are really efficient,” Sprowson says. “There’s no wasted space.” Some of the features you’ll find in your new home include stainless-steel appliances, solid engineered quartz countertops and a full-height marble mosaic backsplash in the kitchen. The modern kitchen cabinetry includes high-gloss solid white lacquer upper

cabinets and horizontal-grain real wood veneer lower cabinets, all built in Canada. The soaker tub in the bathroom is made for spa-like relaxation, complemented by the natural stone porcelain tile flooring, solid marble countertops and European frameless glass shower enclosure. You’ll find laminate flooring throughout the main living areas, with low-profile soft touch broadloom carpeting in the bedrooms. When you’re in the mood for some time outdoors, you’ll love the expansive outdoor patio or balcony in your new home. The amenities are some of the most amazing things about River Park Place. Among them you’ll find a yoga mezzanine, fully equipped fitness centre, dog-wash station, media room and training court with space to play basketball or badminton. “These are little things that make sense,”

Sprowson says. “We picked up the concept of a whole home, taken all of those things you’re looking for and put them into some form of amenity at River Park Place. You don’t expect to get that in a condo.” For the next several week, River Park Place will be holding weekend events that celebrate all those amenities. The next one, a three-onthree basketball scrimmage, will take place on Aug. 10 at the River Park Place sales centre. “Intracorp is fielding a team,” Sprowson laughs. “The old guys are going to get schooled!” There will be a grilling exhibition on Aug. 17 and daylight yoga on Aug. 24. The Oval Village neighbourhood has been rapidly growing since the end of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, and River Park Place is perfectly situated to take advantage of everything the neighbourhood has to offer. “Our buyers are really starting to appreciate the evolution of the area,” Sprowson says. “This is the number-one neighbourhood in Richmond.” Buyers will have access to transit via the Canada Line just minutes away, as well as the Vancouver International Airport, the Richmond dyke trails and all of the shopping, dining and leisure activities in the area. T&T Supermarket will open its doors nearby, as well as medical, dental and banking services. Homes at River Park Place start at $229,900. For more information, visit www. intracorp.ca/riverparkplace, call 604282-7838 or visit the sales centre at 7100 Elmbridge Way, open every day except Fridays between noon and 5 p.m.

GVHBA SUMMER SOCI SOCIAL The Suppliers Council and the Membership Committee are holding a social networking event on Wednesday, August 14 from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. The event is open to GVHBA members, guests of GVHBA members and invited non-members. Call 778-565-4288 for more information.

Before buying compare space & water heating costs When you’re house-hunting, choosing a home with natural gas for space and water heating can save you money. Believe it at fortisbc.com/calculator. *These are approximate savings based on the difference between annual natural gas and electricity costs for space and water heating of a 2,300 square-foot house with average insulation and four occupants in the FortisBC Lower Mainland service area. Calculation compared standard-efficiency natural gas furnace and large storage tank water heater with electric furnace and equivalent water heater and is based on FortisBC natural gas rates as of May 2013 ($9.35/GJ) and electricity rates in the service area identified (Tier 1 and 2: $0.071 and $0.109 per kWh).
