Pipeline rupture by quake a worry No known active faults but Kinder Morgan to fund more study Jeff Nagel Black Press

Kinder Morgan is expected to carry out more research on the potential seismic risk of a quake rupturing its Trans Mountain pipeline and spilling oil into Burrard Inlet. Belcarra Mayor Ralph Drew says a just-completed review of area geologic faults funded by

Kinder Morgan is a good start but more work is needed to answer outstanding questions about the danger. Some geologists in the past have suggested a fault triggered the historic slump of the north face of Burnaby Mountain an estimated 15,000 years ago. Drew’s nightmare scenario is for some similarly violent seismic event to strike today near the pipeline Kinder Morgan intends to twin and close to the Westridge Marine Terminal, where large amounts of

oil is stored in tanks on a hill above the inlet. “It doesn’t take much land movement to result in a fracture to a hard object like a metal pipe,” Drew said. Geotechnical consulting firm BGC Engineering reviewed older research and concluded there are no known active faults in the Lower Mainland. But BGC’s report stresses that doesn’t mean they don’t exist – active faults might merely be undiscovered.

The U.S. has done more to search for seismic trouble spots and surveys there in recent years have revealed active faults within five kilometres of the border. “It is possible that given comparable research, active faults could be found north of the border,” the report says. Studies in the 1970s and 1980s flagged several possible faults across Burnaby Mountain as well as around downtown Vancouver and Coal Harbour.

The latest development in the UniverCity community next to Simon Fraser University could include a 17-storey apartment tower, according to a Burnaby city planning report. The developer, Liberty Homes (Parcel 25) Ltd., is seeking a rezoning to allow the tower, as well as a sixstorey commercialresidential building and townhouses. The project would be located at 9055 University High St., across Tower Road from University Highlands Elementary School, which is currently the site of a parking lot and temporary sales centre for the area’s residential developments. The SFU Community Plan designates the site as a mixed-use commercial centre that would serve both the university and residential communities, the staff report said. Please see PROPOSAL, A10

Burnaby office vacancy rate on the rise But longterm outlook positive: Avison Young

“I don’t see it as a huge impact because we don’t have a raft of tenants leaving the Burnaby marketplace.” And while new office buildings are being constructed and planned, there hasn’t been a huge swing in vacancy numbers. “I think that bodes well for Burnaby which has been a dynamic market for over a decade,” he said. Elliott noted that while some space has been leased in the new buildings, they’re not counted towards the occupancy rate until they actually move in. In the 29-storey, 411,000-square-foot Metrotower III, due for completion in April 2014, that includes environmental consulting firm Hemmera, which will move from Downtown Vancouver to lease 25,000 square feet over two floors, and Stantec Consulting Ltd., which will take up 65,000 square feet on about four floors, says the Avison Young report. Another 230,000 square feet of office space is being built as part of Phase 2 in Appia Development’s Solo District at the southwest corner of Lougheed Highway and Willingdon Avenue, with a targeted completion date of mid-2015. And still more office space is in the planning stages, including Phase 3 of Discovery Place Business Park, which still needs an anchor tenant to move the

Burnaby’s office vacancy rate is up but it’s largely a blip in what is otherwise a positive longterm outlook, says Bill Elliott, a principal of Avison Young. According to the commercial real estate firm’s mid-year report, Burnaby’s vacancy rate rose to 8.9 per cent by June 30, from 7.8 per cent at the end of 2012. However, it’s still lower than the 9.6 per cent vacancy rate seen a year earlier in the market. Burnaby is the second-largest office market in the Lower Mainland after Downtown Vancouver and the change is due to movement by two large tenants. Nokia shut down its research and development facility in South Burnaby, and TransLink merged three offices— its 72,000-square-foot head office in Metrotower II, its bus operations in Surrey and Transit Police offices in New Westminster—into one new headquarters on the old Labatt Brewery site in New West, adjacent to Royal Columbian Hospital. That, combined with the addition of new office space inventory to the Burnaby market nudged the vacancy rate up, said Elliott.

project forward, in Shape Properties’ redevelopment of Brentwood Town Centre and two office towers envisioned as part of Sears Canada’s redevelopment of its land at Metropolis at Metrotown mall. “If everybody built at the same time you might have a problem, but I don’t think that’s going to occur,” Elliott said. “If everybody built at same time and vacancy

numbers went up to 15 or 20 per cent, the answer is yes, rents would come down because real estate works on a supply-anddemand basis.” In the short term, over the next six to 12 months, Elliott can see the possibility of a “slight reduction” in office rents but noted Burnaby hasn’t seen huge swings on rents in the last 10 years.

One also suggested an earthquake in 1859 may have turned Stanley Park, previously described as an island, into a peninsula. BGC found insufficient evidence to determine if the possible faults around Burnaby Mountain are real or active, but it said modern imaging techniques and other geotechnical methods could shed more light. Kinder Morgan is expected to finance more work as part of its proposed Trans Mountain pipeline twinning project, which would nearly triple pipeline capacity to 890,000 barrels per day.

She noted in the 1990s a Lower Mainland geotechnical study prompted the drilling of a new crossing under the Fraser River between Surrey and Coquitlam to protect the pipeline from damage during an earthquake. Drew is also pushing Kinder Morgan to conduct detailed baseline studies of the aquatic life and habitat found in Burrard Inlet that could be at risk in a spill – a request that has been endorsed by other local councils and Metro Vancouver.

Magician plays to kids and their parents Mario Bartel

photo@burnabynewsleader.com

Mike Norden is a customer service representative for Telus in Burnaby. He hears all the complaints about billing mistakes, email problems, cellphone issues. But on weekends and in his spare time he swaps out his headset for a colourful top hat, short sleeve shirt and a trunk full of magic tricks, entertaining awestruck kids and bemusing their parents and care providers as Norden the Magician. Norden was recently named Children’s Entertainer of the Year by the Pacific Coast Association of Magicians that represents more than 1,000 tricksters from the west coast of North America, Japan and even Australia. For Norden, the two worlds aren’t that different; they’re both about making people happy. Although, he says, keeping a room of five-year-olds riveted for 30-45 minutes can be infinitely more challenging. Norden didn’t discover the magic of magic until he was in his twenties while visiting

Disneyland with friends. As they stood in line for rides or other attractions, he kept returning to the magic store, fascinated by the sleight of hand tricks being demonstrated. After unleashing his credit card to purchase a number of tricks he found himself performing basic card and disappearing-coin stunts for friends and family. They started inviting him to perform at their kids’ birthday parties. Before long, says Norden, he became known as “the uncle who could do magic.” Eventually that led to paid gigs, says Norden. “It just blossomed.” To improve his act and his professionalism, he started reading books, watching instructional DVDs. He joined the Vancouver Magic Circle, an association of local magicians. He studied other performers. As he staged more shows for kids, Norden realized it was just as important to keep them entertained rather than just bedazzle them with fancy tricks. “Kids will always say they know how a trick is done,”

r e m m u S ! s e i h t o Smo

TRY OUR NEW

says Norden. “It’s all in the presentation.” As Norden performs for his pint-sized audience, wiping his sweaty brow with a diaper, popping a rabbit puppet out of his hat, he doesn’t forget the adults at the back of the room. After all, they’re paying his bill. “I’ve got to write to keep adults entertained as well, make them pay attention,” says Norden. “If I don’t shine, I don’t get more work.” That means crafting the odd joke that may go over the kids’ heads but hit their parents square in the funny bone. “Kids are a tough audience,” says Norden. “But it’s the parents who might expect me to walk up the side of a building.” But as long as everyone walks away smiling, whether he’s solved their cellphone crisis or engineered laughs while pulling coins from his ears, Norden says he knows he’s done a good job. At both his vocations. • To learn more about Norden the Magician, go to www. magicshows.ca

NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Drug law reform must proceed

LAST WEEK:

Failed NDP leadership candidate Dana Larsen and his group Sensible BC are set to kick off their campaign next month to force a referendum on marijuana policy. Much like the ultimately successful Fight HST petition in 2010, Larsen hopes to use the Recall and Initiative Act to force an end to what he sees as archaic and draconian drug laws. Specifically, Larsen and his group want to prohibit the use of police resources in B.C. to enforce drugs laws aimed at the possession and use of marijuana. Larsen will need to get more than 10 per cent of registered voters in each of B.C.’s 85 electoral districts to sign the petition in order to force a province-wide referendum on the issue. He’ll have 90 days to do it, beginning next month. Larsen is no doubt emboldened by the success of the Fight HST campaign, not to mention the recent move by Washington State to legalize recreational marijuana use there. And the message is clear: Marijuana prohibition does vastly more harm than good. It’s a message that is increasingly finding an audience. An Ipsos poll conducted last year found that 66 per cent of Canadians support the decriminalization of marijuana in small amounts. Twenty-five years ago, that number was just 39 per cent. It’s an encouraging trend. Marijuana prohibition funds organized crime, wastes tax dollars, wastes police resources, and makes the drug easier for young people to obtain. Larsen should be commended for going after an issue that most politicians are too afraid to touch. His message is one that deserves to be heard. – South Delta Leader

THIS WEEK: Should dental care be part of provincial medical plans? Vote at www.burnabynewsleader.com

Hooped without a good dental plan Anyone who thinks Tung Sheng (David) Wu has been the only unlicensed dentist to carry on his trade illegally in this province is delusional. It is not uncommon by any means for retired dentists and even some who are still active in their profession to carry on business in their homes in much the same manner as Wu, who ran his office out of a Burnaby home. While the College of Dental Surgeons, the self-governing body for dentists in B.C., will likely deny the widespread existence of such illegal practices, thousands of patients of these basement practitioners take regular advantage of the bargains available in such unlicensed operations. The main differences between Wu and many others is that Wu is not in good standing with the College of Dental Surgeons, nor does he possess a licence or adhere to adequate sanitary standards. There are many reasons why people will patronize illegal or unlicensed basement dental operations but the biggest reason is affordability.

Sandy Macdougall The general lack of affordability of unsubsidized dental work is a many-headed monster and people like Wu are only one aspect of it. Practically from birth, parents are besieged with dentists’ psychological claptrap that, if we want our children to have a vibrant and prosperous life, they must have perfectly aligned, perfectly formed and perfectly white teeth. Of course, this all costs money; plenty of money; indecent sums of money, and most of all, money that many parents don’t have unless they have a good, employer-supported dental plan. According to too many dentists, those poor children whose parents can’t afford these socially vital dental works will be condemned to a substandard life with few friends and a bleak future.

A cynic might claim that the greedy element in dentistry is more interested in esthetics and their own bottom line than they are in the dental well-being of their patients. The advent of dental plans has only made the financial burden of dental costs for many people even more impossible. Retainers, braces, bridges, root canals, and full or partial dentures can cost many thousands of dollars. In the parlance of today’s world, if you don’t have a dental plan or a huge income, you are hooped. While some dentists struggle along on net incomes that are not startling, many rake in more than $200,000 per year. People with dental plans have little regard for how much or how little their dentist makes but people on low incomes and pensioners without dental plans are left in the lurch. Even at lowest average income for dentists, most old age pensioners earn about one-tenth as much. Without additional resources, many of these people either ignore their dental health

or they patronize illegal basement operations such as Wu’s. The health care system in B.C. is failing in a huge way when it comes to dental health. Only in rare cases will medicare pick up the tab for dental work. Dentists, dental hygienists, and almost any health care professional will attest to the importance of good dental health on the impact of a person’s overall physical well-being. By ignoring or evading the issue of dental health costs, the province’s health care system is probably incurring even greater overall costs. And so people with no alternative affordable option will continue to seek out illegal basement dental operations where they can receive treatment. Editor’s Note: A B.C. Supreme Court justice issued a warrant for Wu’s arrest after he failed to show up for a scheduled court appearance. His whereabouts are unknown.

COMMENT

Embassy, consulate dispute unacceptable For many years the Burnaby Deer Lake Rotary Club has sponsored foreign students to come to Canada. We have specialized in helping students from the Russian Far East and work with a Rotary Club there in making the arrangements. This involves a lot of work and considerable expense but it is very rewarding. This year we are sponsoring a young man who wants to attend BCIT. All the arrangements were in place, his air fare, accommodation, and admission to BCIT, and we were looking forward to welcoming him this week so he could start his studies in September. Tragically, after trying for six months he has been unable to get a student visa and won’t be able to come. His application is still waiting to be processed. We have wasted our time and money and I am sure he is heartbroken and all because of the dispute between the Government of Canada and its embassy and consulate foreign service workers. The workers are staging a slowdown in an effort to get a wage increase and in the process hurting thousands of innocent people, including our student, and making Canada look bad. This is unacceptable and must stop. The parties must find some way to solve this dispute that doesn’t involve inflicting suffering on so many vulnerable, innocent people. Garth Evans Burnaby

sidewalk cyclists ‘inconsiderate’ I have been noticing more and more bicyclists riding their bikes on sidewalks. The worst place is at Gilmore station. The kicker, there is a bike lane just on the other side of the sidewalk! I do try and remind these inconsiderate folks but am met with an I’ll-do-what-I-want attitude, and usually some smart Alec remark!! I fear someone is going to get knocked over and badly hurt. Where has common courtesy gone? We made them their own space, yet many decide they own all the pavement! Please show others some kindness, and ride in the bike lanes. Lori Gran Burnaby

FindBerG reFUted Victor Findberg filled your letter page of Aug. 23. 2013 with enough material for a study unrelated to the earth sciences. What he neglected to do is prove that man-made CO2 is responsible for the disastrous global warming he predicts. Not being a scientist myself I am drawn to more commonsense studies and would like to share a couple of quick thoughts. Just in case Findberg found even more naïve comrades to man the barricades in an effort to stop all future development of our resources in this country. CO2 may play a minor role in climate change but is not a driver. Jay Lehr of the Heartland Institute, to name one, claimed already in 2004 that CO2 is no more than four per cent responsible for climate change. Of this humans contribute only about three per cent, which is 0.12 per cent of the total. Canada is responsible for about four per cent of that, which amounts to 0.0048 per cent! Were we to shut down Fort Mac and the oil sands we would reduce global CO2 emissions by 0.000144 per cent. This is not to be laughed at when you are serious about the butterfly-flapsits-wings-on-the-other-side-ofthe-globe argument, but it takes on a different meaning when you consider the next point. Prof. Plimer of the University of Melbourne calculated that the volcanic eruption by the Filipino Mt. Pinatubo in 1991 put more CO2 into the air on its first day than all of mankind ever did together. It took the Icelandic volcano with the unpronounceable name three days to wipe out every effort mankind has made to reduce CO2 consumption, like buying the odd electric car, discouraging people from visiting us as tourists because it uses oil, switching to the 10 times more expensive curly light bulbs and using only two squares of toilet paper per session. On some days there are 200 volcanoes active! As it so happened, Lawrence Solomon of the Financial Post shreds all previous arguments re computer models. His article of Aug. 23 is called ‘Model

Mockery.’ Mr. Solomon is backed by America’s Freeman Dyson, and also by Italy’s best-known scientist, Antonino Zichichi. If this is not enough, there is Robert S. Pindijck. Here are four more reputable people who all agree that the climate changes, but disagree whatever conclusions Mr. Findberg draws and wants your readers to abide by. One final note. Mr. Findberg knows how to dish out insults heavy-handedly, but is rather thin-skinned himself. He tells Dr. Khaskin: “it would help if he first masters basic language skills.” This, right after defending his comment that our offspring will “inherit a poisoned Earth!” There he twists himself into a pretzel to soften his idiotic pronouncement, but, on top of that, he uses the excuse: “The English language is not perfectly literal...” Huh?... Don’t you love these rational people who demand perfection from all others but themselves? Ziggy Eckardt Burnaby Re: Climate change deniers aim to muddy the waters (Letters, NewsLeader, Aug. 23) If Victor Finberg wants to persuade us that his interpretation of climate change science is the correct one, then he should keep his letters respectful and to the point. His unbridled attack on the integrity of an esteemed SFU Research Associate, and his denigration of that scientist’s academic credentials, may serve to vent Finberg’s aroused emotions, but those outbursts do nothing to advance any scientific argument. Furthermore, Finberg’s innuendo, that his opponents “have nothing valid to say”, only confirms his own lack of tolerance for views that differ from his own. What is he going to do next?

City warns home buyers Wanda Chow

wchow@burnabynewsleader.com

Burnaby city hall wants to warn potential buyers of two homes whose owners have so far failed to comply with city bylaws and remove illegal construction. The first, at 7551 Mary Ave., was the subject of a complaint alleging unauthorized suites had been built in the singlefamily home. City inspectors

confirmed in a June 2012 inspection that the attached garage had been converted to living space and a computer room had been built over the front entrance foyer, according to a city staff report. Property owners Xin Zhao and Jing Wu were notified by letter days later that they were required to remove all the unauthorized construction and restore the garage to what was approved

in the plans when the original building permit was issued. The owners vacated the illegal suite in the garage and asked for an extension to spring 2013 to complete the rest of the work, claiming that the unauthorized construction was already there when they had bought the house. City hall later approved an additional extension to March 2014. Please see NOTICE, A17

Advocates want TransLink sales tax, SFU gondola built Proposal calls for $6.5-billion rapid transit expansion Jeff Nagel Black Press

Two South of Fraser transit advocates are pushing for a long wish list of transit expansion projects in Metro Vancouver and they want a new 0.5 per cent regional sales tax to pay for it all. Surrey’s Paul Hillsdon and Nathan Pachal of the group South Fraser On Trax say the package of upgrades they’ve designed offers something for every part of the region. Most of the $6.5 billion in capital spending they propose would go to a $2.9-billion SkyTrain extension down Broadway to UBC and for $2.1 billion to build new light-rail lines in Surrey to Guildford, Langley City and Newton, with a B-Line express bus route south to White Rock. They also want TransLink to build a previously proposed but shelved $144-million transit gondola to SFU atop Burnaby Mountain. And they propose several additional B-Lines that would extend quasi-rapid transit bus service to Port Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge on Hwy 7; down the 200 Street spine of Langley; along Marine Drive connecting West Vancouver and North Vancouver; as well as on Hastings Street and 41st Avenue in Vancouver and Burnaby. Existing buses over the Port Mann Bridge on Highway 1 and on Highway 99 from Surrey to Richmond would also be upgraded to B-Lines.

They say a half-point hike in the provincial sales tax levied only in Metro would raise $250 million a year – enough to cover the operating costs of the new lines as well as one third of the capital cost, on the assumption Victoria and Ottawa pay the other two thirds. “We’ve spent 10 years squabbling about what kind of tool can be used to fund the service,” Pachal said, adding the sales tax wouldn’t rile motorists as much as other TransLink sources like tolls or a vehicle levy. “This is fair and equitable.” He said a higher regional PST would grow with the economy and pull in money from visitors and tourists, while providing exemptions for basics like groceries to help shield lower-income residents. B.C. residents have paid higher sales taxes not long ago. Over the past decade, the federal GST has been cut by two per cent and the provincial PST was trimmed by 0.5 per cent. “We feel there is wiggle room,” Pachal said. Metro Vancouver mayors also suggested a small regional sales tax early this year. But mayors’ council chair Richard Walton said he envisioned something smaller – perhaps 0.1 or 0.2 per cent coming from that source – as part of a mix of other transit funding tools. Walton said there’s no doubt sales tax could generate a lot of revenue, but affordability would be a concern. Please see mayors, a11

Proposal would be landmark ⫸

continued from FRONT

The proposal would see the “landmark” condo tower built at the Tower Road corner, threestorey townhouses along Highland Court, and on University High Street, a six-storey, mixed-use building with two storeys of commercial, totalling about 34,000 square feet, topped by four storeys of residential units. “The proposed building massing is sensitive to adjoining properties, with the apartment tower providing an orientating landmark at a key corner, appropriately relating to other planned apartment towers as well as the water tower,” said the report. For the commercial space, 69 parking spots are provided, while the residential component would include 255 parking spaces (including 37 visitor spots), more than the 234 required. The report said existing easements and covenants on the property would also require the development to provide 10 parking spaces for the childcare centre across the street on Highland Court, 10 spaces for co-op cars, at least 112 hourly-paid of free public parking spots. The latter is to accommodate 92 required off-site visitor spaces for existing and planned residential developments in the neighbourhood and 20 spaces for the church in the Cornerstone Building across University High Street. The residential component would include 184 units, of which 98 would be in the tower, 60 in the mid-rise and 26 in the townhouse portion. They would comprise 95 one-bedroom units ranging from 553 to 846 square feet, 63 two-bedrooms of 926 to 1,916 square feet and 26 three-bedroom units sized from 1,550 to 1,644 square feet. If given the go-ahead by council, the project could go to public hearing on Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 7 p.m. in Burnaby city hall council chambers.

Ways for parents, kids to prepare for back to school

T

MAKING A STATEMENT

GET YOUR TICKETS TODAY STARTING AT ONLY

he inevitable last minutes of summer are ticking away. The countdown has begun for back-to-school once again.  And along with it, major retailers are bombarding parents, making sure they hurry out and buy the coolest new outfits, backpacks and gadgets for their kids. But this hyped-up, commercial back-to-school rush to equip students with new garments and gear often gets in the way of the real preparations that parents and kids should focus on for a successful school year. “The mad, back-to-school dash to purchase new clothes, backpacks, electronic devices and school supplies often overwhelms parents and children alike,” said Julia Fitzgerald, Sylvan Learning’s chief marketing officer. “What is often lost in this scramble is the fact that school is about learning.” “Starting a new school year can be a daunting experience

for many students, and failing to get off on the right foot can set the tone for the rest of the academic year. Parents need to take the right steps starting now to make sure their students are prepared to tackle new academic challenges with the right habits and daily routines. This includes trying not to be so consumed with showing up in the latest fashions; it’s not that important.” Here are four simple things Fitzgerald suggests parents can do to help their children achieve better academic results: • Impose the two-week rule – With later bedtimes over the summer, children need to ease back into their school routine rather than having a sudden change their first day of school. Using the last two weeks of summer to re-introduce a school year bedtime routine will make waking up on that first day a lot easier. • Reintroduce regular meal times – During summer months, kids tend to grab a snack several

times during the day. Parents can start reminding students to get back into a three-meal-a-day schedule in order to regulate their system into the back-toschool mode. Nutrition is an important factor in academic performance, and eating a healthy, balanced breakfast and lunch keeps kids alert throughout the day. • Family calendar – Time management is tricky for everyone, especially kids and teens, but planning is an important way to save everyone’s sanity. Having major deadlines, due dates, events and extracurricular activities in one place helps kids visualize their week, manage their time and stay on track. • Don’t ditch good habits – If you and your child have established a good summer learning routine, when school starts try not to forsake all of the fun reading, writing and art activities that kept your child engaged all summer.

Here are four important things students can follow to improve the academic quality of the school year, starting on Day One.  • Organize – Organization is not overrated. Keeping notes, projects and reading materials in logical order helps students find what they need right away, cutting down on time spent tracking things down, and allowing more time for actual studying. • Take good notes – Yes, it does matter. Taking good notes helps keep kids’ grades up, especially in middle or high school. To boost note-taking skills, students should practice picking out the “main ideas” in conversations, news reports, or magazine articles.  • Concentrate – Staying focused is easier for some kids than others. Students need to do their best to avoid distractions in class. This means keeping cell phones tucked away and being vocal if a chatty classmate is too distracting. • Speak up – Students often can get tripped up by homework or test instructions. Students should know it’s OK to speak up if they don’t understand testing or homework directions. Students should also listen carefully and spend plenty of time reading directions.

‘Different dynamic in Calgary’ ⫸

Vacancy rates below 10 per cent are considered “still a pretty strong dynamic for landlords,” he added. Burnaby has a fairly level equilibrium between landlords and tenants. “It’s what I call a fair market.” Elliott pointed

more time to sign more leasing deals than might otherwise be necessary in those larger markets. Also helping the city’s cause is the fact that if tenants are prepared to look both in Downtown Vancouver and the suburbs, “Burnaby

In those cities, where more head offices are located, “you can literally lease entire buildings to one tenant. That dynamic does not exist in Vancouver.” So going into a project like a new office tower here, developers know it will require

tends to be the first municipality they’ll include in the survey,” he said, thanks to its central geographic location, the accessibility of public transit, infrastructure such as shopping and other amenities for staff, and a wide variety of inventory. It can also reproduce the same quality of office space as Downtown Vancouver but at a lower cost. “Burnaby has a

lower-cost option with equal quality and in some cases, better quality, inventory. Then you combine that with the office parks … you’ve got probably some of the best office park opportunities for tenants in Western Canada.” That highest-quality of office space, Class A, also happens to make up the majority, 67 per cent, of Burnaby’s available office inventory. The vacancy rate for that space was only 7.5 per cent. The overall vacancy rate in the city was brought up by the 8.8 per cent vacancy rate over the same period for Class B space, which makes up less than 23 per cent of the city’s inventory, and Class C, whose 18.5 per cent vacancy rate affects only about 10 per cent of inventory. With mostly the highest-quality product available, it bodes well

for Burnaby as its office space should be easier to lease out. Office tenants are like people wanting to buy a house, Elliott said. “Not too often do

we sell our house and move downmarket, we tend to move laterally or upmarket. That happens in the commercial real estate business as well.”

Black Press

Fisheries officers have doubled their patrols on the lower Fraser River to battle poachers who are illegally catching threatened sockeye salmon to sell into the black market. All fishing for sockeye has been shut down in response to a low run size and dangerously high river temperatures to ensure as many of the salmon get upriver to spawn as possible. But Department of Fisheries and Oceans area director Herb Redekopp said the “full-out conservation closure” hasn’t deterred illegal fishing on the river. “Last night we ran into another group of poachers,” he said Friday, adding officers made arrests and seized illegally caught salmon, gear and a boat. “That’s happened nightly in numerous

groups and in different areas of the river.” He said eight vessels had been seized as of Friday, along with 50 nets and 27 investigations are in progress that have or are expected to result in charges under the Fisheries Act. The most intense illegal fishing is happening between Surrey and Spuzzum, in various hot spots around Agassiz, Chilliwack and the Fraser Canyon. He said poaching can be particularly lethal at the canyon, where salmon heading upriver use backeddies to rest and an illegal net dropped in can quickly pull up a full set. Redekopp said DFO is using night vision imaging, remote cameras, helicopters and other aircraft to detect probable poachers for interception on the ground.

By then, city electrical inspectors confirmed the light fixtures and outlets had been removed in the computer room and all wiring had been terminated in outlet boxes. “The property owners have, however, suggested in conversations to staff that they may consider selling the dwelling due to the repair costs,” the report said. Considering the second extension to complete the work, the city building department is asking for council’s approval to file a Section 57 notice on the property’s title to ensure any future buyers are aware of the outstanding issues. The notice will be removed once the required work is completed. Similarly, city staff are seeking to place a notice on the title of 4386 Rumble St. where the owner is flouting city bylaws. In June 2010, a contractor applied for a building permit to rebuild an awning and make structural upgrades to a deck following a fire. During the plan-checking process, city staff determined the fire-damaged deck and cover had been built without a permit in the first place. For them to be rebuilt, the project would require Board of Variance approval and structural drawings would need to be submitted to meet Building Code requirements. After informing the property owner, Charles Surmik, the contractor was released from the job. On March 21, 2013 the contractor submitted a request to cancel the permit aug 17–Sept 2 (closed Aug 19 & 26) application due to not going ahead with the work. That led to an inspection which found the deck cover had been rebuilt without a permit. “Based on a discussion with the owner at the time of inspection, it became all ShowS aRe fRee with aDmiSSion evident to staff that the owner is not prepared Community the Dal to proceed with the ShowCaSe RiChaRDS oRCheStRa permit application process and necessary work to bring the construction into compliance with the Aug 17, 18, 20 & 21 Daily at 1:30pm, Daily at 11:30am at 1:30pm 3pm & 4:30pm Zoning and Building (no 1:30pm show Aug 17, 18, 20, 21) Bylaws,” a city staff Nightly at report said. 7pm & 8:30pm In addition to warning prospective buyers, city staff believe placing a notice on title in both cases “may encourage the listeN to music’s biggest hits courtesy of your favourite tribute artists. owners to resolve the Aug 17 & 18........The FAb Fourever—The CompleTe beATles experienCe matter,” the reports say.

If necessary, legal action will be pursued to Save on PaSSeS at: ensure compliance with City bylaws.”

“We’re using every bit of technology available to us as well as intelligence that we’re gathering from the public.” No commercial or recreational fishing for sockeye has been allowed this year. Pent-up demand for sockeye has driven prices up and prompted much more illegal fishing than in past years, he said. “There’s a huge illegal marketplace for black market salmon.” Fishermen are getting about $20 a fish, Redekopp said, and some buyers are paying up to $50 each.

SPORTS

Burnaby siblings snag B.C. golf crowns Burnaby siblings Alex and Sumie Francois are British Columbia golf champions. Alex won the juvenile boys title while Susie secured the juvenile girls crown at the joint provincial tournament held this week in Courtenay. Alex, 15, won by seven strokes in the 54-hole event at the 6,555 yard Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community. He followed up a first-round 70 with a pair of 69s for an eight-under 208 total. Alex, however, started the final round Thursday with a one-stroke lead over Trevor Yu of Vancouver, but neither was the great through the first 14 holes with Alex carding three bogeys and two birdies. But on the par-5 15th hold he made an eagle to take a three stroke lead and that basically clinched the tournament for him. “It was the turning point,” said Alex in a BC Golf press release. “Trevor and I both hit good drives down the middle and he hit a great second shot. I just happened to hit it inside of him to about 15-20 feet and he got an easy two putt. I just made [my putt] and that was the tournament right there.” He was coming off a victory at the PGA of B.C. club pro-junior tournament. “It gave me the confidence to know that I could make as much birdies as I could and that I could stand up under the pressure,” said Alex. Susie, 13, won the girls title by two strokes over Keanna Mason of Maple Ridge and Naomi Ko of Victoria. She won despite shooting a secondround 79 which was sandwiched between rounds of 69 and 72 for a 4-over 220 total. Susie entered the final round one shot out of the lead. During the final round she and Ko

battled it out for the lead, but when she birdied the par-3 12th hole and Ko bogeyed she had a three-stroke lead and she didn’t look back. “Naomi is a great golfer. I was happy with what I did,” said Susie. “I was happy I beat my brother on the first day but on the second day it was pretty tough. I was struggling a lot but I was able to handle it [Thursday].” Alex and Susie join Andy and Jennifer Yang, who both won the junior masters in 2007, as the only brother and sister combinations to win the same event in recent history. Kevin Li of Burnaby finished in a tie for 34th (82-72-79=233) while Edward Chen was tied for 54th (77-84-80=241). In the girls, Jacklyn Duchen of Burnaby tied for 20th (92-96-94=282) in the field of 23. sports@burnabynewsleader.com
