The festival made them accessible to residents of New Westminster and surrounding cities, with visitors spilling out of the SkyTrain stations out onto Columbia. Add a beer garden and entertainment as well as not charging admission like a weekly Sunday food truck festival in Vancouver, and Johnston had a recipe for success.

Queen’s Park and Victoria Hill residents are being warned about a rash of break and enters in their neighbourhoods because of easy access to homes during the warm weather. New Westminster police sent a notice around in those neighbourhoods saying there’s been an increase in break-ins in the early evening hours, and the target entry points have been windows and doors left open because of the heat. The department’s crime prevention team suggests residents always lock up when they’re not at home or not in the immediate area, protect windows, doors and patio doors by installing secondary locking devices that still allow air flow, make the home appear occupied with lights, timers and radios, keep valuables out of view, and communicate with neighbours about activity in the area.

The energy and vibe on the street, she said, made it feel like a party. The feedback she received, apart from those having to stand in long lines, was “overwhelmingly positive.” “It’s the first new big event we’ve introduced in many years, and that’s always a risk because you don’t know how it’s going to go. I’m very thrilled to have it be such a success,” said Johnston. A lot of the word of mouth, so to speak, leading up to the festival was spread via social media. That continued on Saturday when the Twitter world went wild, directing the hungry mobs to other Downtown eateries such as

What some might have termed Mission Impossible became Mission Accomplished. That has meant Mission Adjusted for Karmavore. The vegan store started out four years ago, first of all in Sapperton and then moving to Columbia Street, to bring products made without any contribution from animals. Along with groceries it carried clothing, cosmetics, and candles that couldn’t be found anywhere else on the Lower Mainland. The trailblazers, led by owner Salim Jamal, had their doubters, but the demand for the products they were providing grew to the point where they could be found in regular grocery stores and other specialty shops including a vegan shoe store in Vancouver. “They’re taken care of. I call it mission accomplished. Those things are readily available in mainstream stores, so businesses have to evolve or close,” said Jamal. Although the retail was not becoming sustainable, what was popular was the baking. In

Stefania Butkovic, manager of Karmavore vegan café on Columbia Street bites into a jumbo peanut butter cup.

February, Karmavore added a café and dessert lounge to the store, and now it has phased out its retail side to become a vegan eatery. “You’ve got to see the light when you see it,” said Jamal. He said one of Karmavore’s best assets was having talented vegan baker Ashley McLean on staff. “Her desserts are phenomenal.” Now the deli case, which used to be downstairs in the grocery area, is on the top floor full of sweets like tiramisu, lemon meringue pie, maple walnut cake, cherry cupcake, s’mores cookies, white truffle

paté, smoked jalapeno cheddar cashew cheese, vegan meatloaf and their best seller, peanut butter bars. The downstairs has been closed off to become an expanded kitchen that whips up vegan versions of burgers, wraps, soups, and salads. “We’ve changed in a fairly dramatic way,” said manager Stefania Butkovic. “They wanted more cake so we gave them more space for cake.” Butkovic says a lot of passersby come in when they see the desserts in the deli display, not even realizing they’re actually dairy free when they buy them. They’ve also got a product that  Pizza Ovens allows them to produce  Fire Pits smoothies, shakes and  Pub Tables soft-serve ice cream,  Bars something that’s pretty  Fireplaces popular this time of the  And more! year. In addition to the changes on Columbia, Karmavore has just opened an organic juice bar, Tiny Karmavore, in the River Market. Along with the several intriguing juice combinations it will also serve up a selection of the salads, wraps and baked goods made on Columbia. Tiny Karmavore is being sponsored by The Salient Group. Jamal said Karmavore would give it a three-month window to test out the demand.

Aeryon Ashlie works out several hours a day as part of the 16-week process of preparing for a competition.

Ashlie finished fifth in her category, masters bikini tall, at last year’s championship at the Massey. Then, to give herself a challenge, she went to Columbus, Ohio to compete in the Arnold Classic where she finished 16th in an open division. Getting ready for a competition is a grueling 16-week process that involves not only a lot of working out and shaping, but consuming fish oils and green beans, and a tunnel-vision focus. “It’s an extreme sport,” says

Ashlie as she sips on a dark, green juice made out of 60 vegetables. “It enables me to see where I can take my body to … The [physical] hurt will subside, but what will hurt is if you don’t accomplish your goal.” It’s not a sport, however, she intends to keep doing long term because it demands so much time and attention.

all of that, the superwoman also writes a blog and maintains Facebook and Twitter sites. What’s different in her second go-round of bodybuilding competition is her handling of her bulimia. After shows she doesn’t go gangbusters with binging and purging after eating whatever she wanted. Now she’s learned to love herself and not try to constantly beat herself up because she’s not perfect. “I’m trying to be a positive role model for my daughter and other women,” says Ashlie, who admits the bulimia demons will never really leave her. “I will always have issues with food.” Everything she does is rubbing off on her daughter, she says. Makaella came home one day talking about how she’d done pushups in daycare. “She’s a little athlete,” says Ashlie proudly, adding she doesn’t want to see her daughter become obsessed with her looks. Ashlie goes out of her way to praise Makaella for her intelligence instead of the traditional greeting for girls of “you’re so pretty.” • Pre-judging begins Saturday at 9 a.m. with the finals starting at 6 p.m. Tickets are available at www. masseytheatre.com, 604-521-5050 or ticketing@masseytheatre.com.

OPINION

publISheD & prInteD by blaCk preSS ltD. at 7438 Fraser Park Drive, Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9

NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

10 years too long

LAST WEEK:

When the Liberal government and the B.C. Teachers’ Federation signed a short collective agreement in the summer of 2012, nobody anticipated the same players would be back at the bargaining table 12 months later. But here we are in 2013 with the re-elected B.C. Liberal government making drastic changes to how the bargaining process will go this time around. The recent announcement by education minister Peter Fassbender to remove school trustees from the board of the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association could be a step in the right direction for both sides. The minister’s claim that this will allow the union to negotiate directly with the government, as opposed to an intermediary whose hands are essentially tied, should give the teachers more clout at the bargaining table. For whatever reason, whenever the BCTF goes through negotiations it’s a more tumultuous, public process than other unions in the province. Having to go through a middleman – the BCPSEA – wasn’t working to anyone’s benefit, especially given that the government, which has the power to legislate teachers back to work or tear contracts, was using BCPSEA as a wall between them and the teachers. This shift shows the province is taking a softer and more direct approach to bargaining with the teachers, and that’s good. But it’s likely motivated in some ways by their unprecedented move to seek a 10-year agreement with the teachers. As it stands, there’s nothing in it for the BCTF to agree to such a lengthy contract. Ten years is a long time to be locked into a contract, especially when one considers the ups and downs of the Canadian economy. A more open bargaining process between both sides is a step in the right direction, but 10 years is too long.

Another round of liquor reforms VICTORIA – The B.C. Liberal government is ordering up another round of liquor regulation changes, looking for ways to make life easier for businesses and customers without aggravating the health and social problems associated with alcohol. Discussions with B.C.’s 10,000 liquor licence holders have identified a few problems that should be fixed. Going into a consultation phase that runs to October, the government is looking for answers to a few obvious questions, such as why it takes a pub or bar up to a year to get a licence. Another question: why can a family with under-aged children go into a licensed restaurant for lunch, but can’t go to a pub and place the exact same food and drink order? This should be allowed, perhaps until the traditional 5 p.m. “happy hour” when the pub reverts to adultsonly. A couple of suggestions have come out of the healthy growth of B.C. wine, craft beer and distillery operations. Look for new licence opportunities for

farmers’ markets to sell local beverages along with the produce and preserves. Letters inviting suggestions from existing licence holders have gone out, and RichmondSteveston MLA John Yap will be meeting this fall with industry groups, local governments, police, health and social policy organizations and First Nations in the fall. A website will be put up in September so members of the public can have their say. Here’s my suggestion to start things off. Recent incidents involving so-called “party buses” shone a light on this growing industry, The sudden death of a 16-yearold on a party bus outing in Surrey in February turned out not to be alcohol-related, but to no one’s surprise, open liquor

was found aboard the bus. Open liquor isn’t allowed in any vehicle, but perhaps a new kind of special event licence could be created for party buses. They have been viewed mainly as part of the solution to impaired driving, and the situation isn’t much different from a supervised event on a boat. Here’s another suggestion. Gourmet cooking classes are becoming popular, with customers preparing and then enjoying their meals. Why not licence these establishments, at least so people can bring their own wine for dinner? Both the B.C. Liberals and NDP have advocated for easing the archaic rules on interprovincial trade in wine. B.C. lifted its restrictions on mailorder wine and has urged other provinces to follow suit. There are a couple of reasons why this Prohibition-era structure persists. Liquor sales are a cash cow for provincial governments, and every case of wine brought in from elsewhere is lost profit for the provincial wholesale monopoly. Then there is the local

industry lobby that would rather not add to its competition. Premier Christy Clark pressed this point at the recent premiers’ meeting in Ontario wine country, bringing in the maximum amount of B.C. wine allowed under Ontario rules and urging free trade in Canadian wine. The Toronto media drank it up, aghast that they were barred from ordering the latest Naramata Bench tipples directly. No movement so far from the Ontario government, in a province that has done well developing its own wine industry. The B.C. government will no doubt be lobbied again to allow beer and wine sales in grocery and convenience stores. Our politicians show little interest in that, which is understandable. The B.C. Liberals don’t want to upset the private liquor stores they have nurtured for a decade, and the NDP would never risk annoying the government liquor store union. There are more creative ways to liberalize alcohol sales. tfletcher@blackpress.ca</I>

Smith provided fresh, Best of BC positive Hyack direction Re: Hyack dismisses executive director (NewsLeader, July 31) With the recent dismissal of its executive director, Hyack Festival Association is undermining the progress it has made in the last two years. Douglas Smith was the only executive director in recent memory who recognized the commercial potential of its events and who was able to attract serious corporate sponsorship in order to elevate the profile of the events it organizes. He was the driving force behind new events like Uptown Live! and Concerts at the Quay - events that have regional appeal and which are relevant to the rapidly changing population of New Westminster. This new direction was badly needed for an organization that had become stagnant and increasingly irrelevant. The events surrounding his dismissal, as reported in this newspaper, certainly fuel speculation of inappropriate actions by a select few on the Hyack board. We can only hope the situation can be corrected soon, and that Mr. Smith can be reinstated as the executive director. That is, if he is still willing to. Douglas Smith has proven himself to be the best event organizer Hyack has had in many years.

GREAT TO HEAR POSITIVE CONTRIBUTIONS

COMPASS CARD’S GOAL IS MORE REVENUE

I always enjoy reading letters to the editor. Writers share their opinions on a myriad of topics—train and truck noise, bridge tolls, HST, smart meters, global warming and other controversial topics—all of which are thought-provoking and interesting to read. I’d like to comment on a couple of letters in the July 31 edition of the NewsLeader. Karen Doyle wrote about the great care her mother-in-law and family members received at Royal Columbian Hospital. Thank you, Karen, for taking the time to tell us about a

UNION-BACKED BOARD Re: Criticism smells of sour grapes (Letters, NewsLeader, July 24) In response to former school trustee Lori Watt’s letter, and writing as the wife of former trustee Jim Goring, I’d like to ask: Lori, do you still work for a union? I would like to remind her, and the residents of New Westminster, that there has always been a union-sponsored, union financially backed majority of school trustees on the School District 40 board.

Re: Smart meter bill shocks new business (NewsLeader, Aug. 9) The real truth about BC Hydro spending at least $1 billion on smart meters was to have the ability to institute time-of-day-billing, although that was denied by both BC Hydro, and the BC Liberals. Now, after the election we find out that time-of-day-billing is being contemplated. Anyone with half a brain knew they were lying, because that’s what Crown corporations and politicians do, they lie. There have been numerous complaints about excessive rates since the introduction of smart meters and BC Hydro officials, in one case at least, suggested that

this small business hire an electrician to check out their electrical system, because it’s not their problem, and refused to accept that it might be the smart meter. Here’s the other shoe that’s about to fall: the introduction of Compass Cards. This was a huge expense to TransLink, which is already struggling to maintain services, and in fact has made cuts in some areas while under serving others. A column by Frank Bucholtz (South Fraser should go it alone, NewsLeader, Aug. 9), complains about the lack of service and expense for residents traveling on TransLink to and from the other side of the Fraser River into Vancouver, as they must pay a three-zone fare. Although TransLink assured the people of Metro Vancouver that things would stay the same after the introduction of the Compass card system, zones will stay the same, discount fares would remain intact, and all that would change is that people would be using pre-loaded cards to access the system. But while reading their “Facts” on their website regarding the present zones, it shows that the possible reason for switching to a Compass card system is to increase revenue. It says: “We will leave the fare zones as they are when Compass launches. We want to use the ridership data as people tap in and tap out to help revise our fare structure. Some form of “distancebased” fares may be possible in the future.” TransLink, like BC Hydro, wouldn’t spend all of that money if it was not intended to increase their revenues. So hold onto your wallets people of Metro Vancouver, as it’s not just BC Hydro and the Liberals looking to pick your pockets, you can now add TransLink to your list of unscrupulous pick-pockets.

Commercial and sport sockeye fishing remained closed on the Fraser River system this week, as the Pacific Salmon Commission reported a lower than expected return of fish in what was already expected to be a poor return go to our website year. and click on Based on the latest test fisheries, the commission’s Fraser River Panel upgraded its forecast of early summerrun sockeye from 400,000 to 452,000 fish. The following summer run “is either lower than forecast or their migration timing is much later than expected,” the joint Canada-U.S. panel reported this week. The proportion of late-run sockeye through ocean approach areas has increased in recent days. The late run is expected to be dominated by Birkinhead, Weaver and Late Shuswap sockeye, with some from the Portage and Cultus Lake systems. Water level and temperature in the Fraser system is another concern, after a dry early summer. As of Aug. 5, Fraser River water discharge at Hope was 26 per cent lower than average for that date. The temperature was 20.5 degrees, 2.8 degrees higher than average, a condition that would risk high pre-spawning death if it continues.

The 2013 run is the next in the four-year sockeye life cycle after the disastrous 2009 run, which was expected to see 10 million return. After only one million came back, the federal government appointed Justice Bruce Cohen to head a commission of inquiry on the state of Fraser sockeye. As the inquiry was hearing testimony, the 2010 run came in at an unusually

high 35 million fish, reflecting the complexity of the system that sustains Pacific salmon. The Cohen commission found overall declines in most west coast rivers starting in the late 1980s, from Washington state to the Fraser, Skeena and Nass in B.C., Yukon’s Klukshu and Alaska’s Alsek River.

The last time the New Westminster Salmonbellies won the Minto Cup was 1994, the same year Josh Byrne was born.

The four-team tournament has rotated between Ontario, B.C. and Alberta for more than a decade. Although New West hosted it in 2007, the B.C.

meshing together, which worked out good.â&#x20AC;? The Coquitlam Adanacs and the Salmonbellies (who started the season 4-4 but finished 16-5), were the top two teams during the regular season. They both then easily dispatched their semifinal opponents to gain their Minto berths with the only thing left to determine

being who would go in as league champion. That was decided in a best-of-five final in which Coquitlam won the first two games and New West the second two before the Adanacs prevailed 15-11 in the fifth and deciding game Sunday. The Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Bellies will be joined by Ontario champion Whitby Warriors and the Okotoks Raiders from Alberta in a round robin Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

A tile to remember Last Sunday, the Chinese Benevolent Association (CBA) of Vancouver and the City of New Westminster unveiled a mosaic tile at the southwest corner of Columbia and McKenzie streets in New Westminster. This mosaic was a gift from the CBA to the city and commemorates early Chinese immigrants to New Westminster.

“This mosaic is a symbol of the City’s long-standing relationship with our Chinese community and recognizes their many contributions to our city,” said City of New Westminster’s acting mayor Jonathan Coté. “Looking at it, we are reminded of our need to learn from the past and forge ahead in a spirit of cooperation, friendship and trust.”

The mosaic, designed and created by Liz Calvin, depicts the ancient Chinese folk art of paper cutting which has a history of 1,500 years. It is one of nine that tell the compelling story of economic and social development in New Westminster’s Downtown. The mosaics are located on Columbia Street between Fourth and Eighth Streets.

The delta that keeps growing

I

t is hard to imagine that our province, nevertheless North America, was once covered by glaciers. As they ebbed and flowed

across the lands, these powerful glaciers would break up rock, erode away mountains, shape huge valleys and form the many lakes and rivers we enjoy today as the result of Mother Nature’s artistic work. At the end of the last ice age, the mouth of the Fraser would have been an ice-choked fjord dotted with islands of gravel and sand left behind as the ice melted. Since then, like a conveyor belt, the Fraser River has carried silt from the Interior to the Salish Sea, adding sediment at a rate of 20 million tons a year to the river and ocean floor.

Cindy Sale The growth of the Fraser River delta is estimated to be advancing seaward at a rate of 2.3 meters per year at the low water mark. Islands such as Iona Island, Sea Island, Annacis Island and a network of smaller islands were formed by years of silt deposits built over glacial deposits left behind from the ice age. As the elevation of the riverbed increases so does the threat of flooding. Throw in climate change and you have a natural disaster waiting to happen. In order to avoid the very real threat of flooding like the Flood of ‘48 that submerged farmland and completely wiped out roads, bridges, power lines and 600 feet of CPR track, annual dyke maintenance, gravel and debris removal and regular dredging of the main channel is needed.

Dredging and gravel and debris removal are not new issues, but ones that must be handled delicately. Each year millions of salmon, at the end of an epic upstream return journey from the ocean, lay their eggs amongst the debris and gravel beds that line the banks of the Fraser River. Other important fish species such as eulachon and white sturgeon thrive in the Fraser’s murky waters. The estuary is renowned throughout the world as a major stopping point for migrating birds on the Pacific Flyway. Keeping the Fraser free flowing and healthy is vital to the prosperity of B.C. We must respect the environment and make every effort to preserve the ecosystems while protecting the communities that share their banks with the Fraser.

Arrest warrant for outlaw dentist Mario Bartel

photo@burnabynewsleader.com

A warrant has been issued by B.C. Supreme Court for the arrest of a man accused of operating as an unlicensed dentist out of his Burnaby home. Tung Sheng Wu, who also went by the name of David Wu, failed to appear in court on Monday following an investigation by the College of Dental Surgeons of B.C. (CDSBC). That investigation was promoted by a complaint

from one of his patients. When surveillance by a private investigator hired by the CDSBC revealed evidence that Wu was conducting illegal dental work, the governing body for dentistry obtained a warrant to enter the Southwood Street premises. There it found a “significant amount” of dental equipment that may not have been cleaned or sterilized properly, nor met Health Canada standards, as well as files for nearly 1,500 clients,

most of them from within the Chinese-Canadian community. Some of those files date as far back as the 1990s. Wu’s patients have been advised by the Fraser Health Authority to get tested for Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV because of their risk of exposure to blood borne infection from poorly cleaned equipment. Wu’s patients are urged to call 1-855-895-7425 toll free for a nurse to arrange blood testing.

attendance during the Cup, the Salmonbellies made a big mid-season trade to acquire two of the league’s top snipers, Eli McLaughlin and Cody Nass from the Delta Islanders to supplement the strengths of Byrne, Anthony Malcom, Quinn Smith and Jeremy Bosher. “It opened a few eyes,” says Weaver of the trade. “We have an excellent blend of youth and veterans on this team, so I’m very pleased with the way it’s come out. We gave up some draft picks and a roster player, but we felt the value of those two players will give us that extra push to not only be competitive but to win the Minto Cup.” That’s something Byrne, who attended Lord Tweedsmuir

elementary before graduating from New Westminster secondary, is hoping for. He’s been playing lacrosse since he was four years old. Although they had never played the sport, his parents put him in lacrosse because hockey was so expensive. So, like any other boy growing up in New Westminster, lacrosse is in the blood. “You watch a game as a kid and you wish one day to just be able to make the team,” said Byrne, who will be attending ASA Manhattan junior college on a field lacrosse scholarship next year along with teammates Nathan Stewart and Tyrell Hamer-Jackson.

Getting ready to care for the Baby Boomers

A

s Canada continues to age, caring for elderly parents becomes a challenging issue that requires mindful thinking and advance planning.

With approximately 13 per cent of the New Westminster population and 14 per cent of the Burnaby population at 65 years or older, according to the 2011 Census data, aging family members are becoming a greater concern and leading to a number of challenges for families. A growing problem employers are facing today is the rising number of employees calling in sick in order to care for their aging parents. Almost 25 per cent of Canadian households are now involved in caring for an elderly family member—and this number is rising. Nearly 65 per cent of these caregivers are also employed outside the home. With the average caregiver spending 20 hours per week looking after a senior, many are forced to take time away from their paid jobs. According to the National Alliance for Caregiving in the U.S., approximately 15 million days of work per year are lost due to these circumstances. What’s more is that these numbers will continue to rise with our aging population. The two most significant results for families having to

Wendy Scott care for elderly parents are a reduction in income due to missed shifts and an increase in stress. Many families face these problems with surprise and shock but it is becoming increasingly important to recognize these issues in advance and plan for them. People spend more time planning for their vacations and major purchases than they do planning for events that will happen as we age. Being prepared avoids the burden of crisis management that could lead to costly decisions and loss of dignity and independence. When faced with aging parents, it is always best to have a future plan before it becomes a critical issue. Here a few suggestions for families to consider: TALK TO YOUR PARENTS OR FAMILY MEMBERS BEFORE A CRISIS SITUATION.

With this conversation you will better understand the true wishes of your aging family members. Discuss Medicare, health insurance, long-term

LOCATE ANY COMMUNITY RESOURCES THAT MAY BE AVAILABLE TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. In Greater Vancouver there are numerous services available for the elderly including senior support services, Meals on Wheels, and adult day care facilities. You can access many of these services via the local hospital or skilled nursing facility discharge planners, or seniors citizen centres. ASK YOUR EMPLOYER IF THEY CAN HELP.

Many employers are willing to help employee caregivers in order to retain valuable workers. Find out if your employer offers paid leave benefits or flex hours. Some employers are even beginning to include long-term care insurance or caregiver respite programs in their benefit package. ASK FRIENDS AND FAMILY FOR HELP.

Ask them what experiences they have had with some of the community services. Many of these people may have already gone through this and can be of assistance.

Caring for our aging parents is one of the more challenging roles we undertake in our adult lives.

EVE: Get help, get family involved ⫸

: If I remember correctly the marriage vow says “in sickness and in health.” What would happen if the tables were reversed and it was your mom that was not well? What would her expectations be of her husband? I have huge respect for those spouses who have become the prime caregiver. It is a very taxing role to watch the personality you used to know disappear. There are only a few things I can suggest. Find out what support is available in her community such as respite relief, local outreach support, day programs for dementia patients and she should also join a support group. It may be the time to reach out and encourage his immediate family to get actively involved. Be sure she gets a case manager from the provincial health authority because ultimately they have the final say on longterm placement. Think about the best location for his placement when the time comes. Good luck.

New Westminster’s Josh Byrne dodges a check from D.J. Saari of the Coquitlam Adanacs during Game 3 of the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League final in Coquitlam last Wednesday.

Adanacs stop Salmonbellies to secure BCJALL title The New Westminster Jr. Salmonbellies will enter the Minto Cup tournament as British Columbia’s runner-up team. That was determined when the Coquitlam Adanacs defeated the ’Bellies 15-11 in the fifth and deciding game of the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League final on Sunday. After losing the first two games in the bestof-five series, New West got themselves back in the hunt to be league champion by downing the A’s 14-9 in Coquitlam last Wednesday and 9-6 at Queen’s Park Arena on Friday. Sunday’s game was a roller coaster ride with the Adanacs taking a 6-2 lead in the first period and the Salmonbellies flipping it around to outscore the A’s 6-2 in the second. Like the first period, Coquitlam dominated the third frame early scoring the first three goals. New West closed the gap to 12-11 with seven minutes remaining in regulation before the Adanacs pulled away to secure the league title. Anthony Malcom led the way for the ’Bellies with a six-point performance on two goals and four assists. Brendan Ranford had two of each. Eli McLaughlin, Cody Nass and Luke Gillespie also scored twice with Justin Goodwin getting the other goal. On Friday, a tight game which was tied 5-5 heading into the third period was broken open by New West when they outscored Coquitlam 4-1. Anthony had two goals and two assists with Tyrell Hamer-Jackson getting two goals and
