Grade 2/3 teacher Gail Wylie, of New Westminster, is happy to be back in her classroom at Lakeview school in Burnaby. She’s getting ready for the new school year as one of three winners in Canadian Family magazine’s Great Teacher Awards.

Burnaby’s Great Teacher honoured One of three to win award across Canada Wanda Chow

wchow@burnabynewsleader.com

For Gail Wylie, teacher at Burnaby’s Lakeview elementary, being nominated as one of 12 finalists for Canadian Family magazine’s Great Teacher Awards was a huge honour. Winning it was a school and community-wide team effort. Wylie was one of three winners of the award, who each won $2,500 to use for programming and supplies at

their schools and are featured in the magazine’s September issue. The New Westminster resident said she was touched that parents nominated her in the first place and pleased to make it to the top dozen eligible for the online voting portion of the contest. But ever modest, she downplays the recognition. “There are so many other teachers who are fabulous who parents have just not taken the time to do something like that.” Wylie’s nomination was among hundreds the magazine received.

While parent Camilla Nedfors didn’t nominate Wylie personally, she was supportive, telling Canadian Family in its feature story, “My daughter loves school and her teacher, which makes me happy … It’s not the one big thing she does for you – it’s all the small things. She makes you feel seen and important, both students and parents.” Wylie, 57, was something of a late bloomer to the teaching profession. She started out as a childcare worker then became an instructional aide for Burnaby school district in

charge of setting up programs for physically disabled children. When she could no longer do the regular lifting work necessary, she decided to go back to school while still working full time. “My goal was to get my [education] degree by the time I was 38 years old, I got it at 36.” So after 12 years as an instructional aide, Wylie began what has so far been 19 years as a teacher in the Burnaby district.

A stretch of the north side of Hastings Street could get taller now that a fourstorey mixed use development is being proposed for three lots west of Macdonald Avenue. A public hearing will be held Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. in Burnaby city hall council chambers for the application to rezone 3951, 3959 and 3975 Hastings St. which are currently home to older, one and two-storey commercial and mixed-use buildings, according to a city staff report. The proposal, designed by Chris Dikeakos Architects, is for a project with commercial space on the ground and mezzanine levels with three stories of condominium apartments above. All parking would be underground with vehicle access from the rear lane. To meet the Hastings urban village commercial district requirements, a lighted pedestrian walkway within a statutory right-ofway linking Hastings to the north would be included.

Developer to donate to Meals on Wheels $16K to fund lunch program Sales of a new condo project on Royal Oak Avenue will help ease the loneliness for Burnaby Meals on Wheels clients, the developer announced Wednesday. Decorus Developments Inc. will donate $1,000 from the sale of each of the 16 remaining units at SEQUEL to the meal program, the company announced at the ground breaking ceremony for the project. Located at 7727 Royal Oak Ave., the 45-unit SEQUEL is south of Rumble Street and next to another Decorus project, The Sevens on Royal Oak. The $16,000 total donation will help develop a Meals on Wheels pilot project called Let’s Do Lunch, in which volunteer drivers will sit and enjoy lunch together with a client. “Hunger is a hollow feeling. It leaves you empty and exhausted. You can hunger from malnutrition or loneliness,” said Stephen D’Souza, executive director of Meals on Wheels Burnaby, in a press release. “By sharing a meal, we hope to help break the cycle of isolation that so many of our homebound clients feel.” Each $1,000 donation will provide 33 visits through the new program. “We believe it’s important to build strong community ties. Housing and food go hand in hand, you can’t have one without the other,” said Mayur Kothary, co-owner of Decorus, in the release. “This donation shows our commitment

“This walkway will provide a convenient, alternate access for residents along Albert Street to the shops and services along Hastings Street during business hours,” the report said. And while the zoning restricts an individual user of a ground-floor commercial space to a maximum building frontage of 20.12 metres (66 feet), the report said city staff may support a future relaxation of the restriction for suitably-designed cafes, restaurants, food stores and

retailers if needed. “This portion of Hastings Street is noted to have less pedestrian traffic compared to the core area of the Heights shopping district and it is acknowledged that certain uses occupying a larger tenant space could help generate additional pedestrian traffic in this area while successfully maintaining pedestrian interest through active storefronts, transparent glass, and window displays.” If it gets final approvals from council, the project would comprise

14,611 square feet of commercial space and 42 apartments of which 27 would be one-bedroom units and 15 would be two-bedrooms. Also on the agenda of the Sept. 24 public hearing is the rezoning of 4700 Imperial St., a property which has long sat vacant at the corner of Waverley Avenue. In 2001, council approved a rezoning of the site to allow the development of the Taiwan Economic & Cultural Centre, according to a city staff report. But the centre was never built and

in 2009, city hall received another application to rezone it to permit construction of a commercial building. That application also never went ahead and was withdrawn. Earlier this year, Da-Yi Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Ltd. applied to rezone the site to allow construction of a 647-square-metre (almost 7,000-square-foot), onestorey commercial building to contain five commercial units. The units were initially proposed for restaurants and 14 parking spaces are proposed on site, the report said.

City to study co-op models as solution to affordable housing for Burnaby Wanda Chow

wchow@burnabynewsleader.com

Burnaby city hall will be attempting to re-invent the wheel in an effort to address the growing problem of a lack of affordable housing. On Monday, council approved spending $10,000 on a study of affordable, family co-operative housing models as part of its work on a Housing Action Plan and an updated Official Community Plan. The money will come from amenity bonus funds contributed by developers when the city approves additional density. More specifically, it will come from the 20 per cent of such funds the city sets JORDAN aside in its Community Benefit Bonus Housing Fund for housing projects, a pot which currently contains $10.7 million, including interest, according to a city staff report. Burnaby will also apply to BC Housing for a $5,000-grant to split the cost of the study which will go ahead no matter the outcome of the application. The aim of the study is to “identify co-operative housing models, based on a community land trust approach, to increase the stock of family housing that is affordable to median income households in Burnaby,” said the report. It notes the median household income in the city, according the 2006 Census, is $50,205. Coun. Colleen Jordan, chair of the city’s community development committee, said city staff are looking at the use of for-profit or “equity” co-ops as a potential form of housing that ordinary citizens could afford to buy into as well as how best the amenity bonus housing fund could be used. For-profit housing co-ops are not built using government subsidies or land leases, unlike those using the non-profit co-op model which are often

located on government-owned land using longterm lease agreements, the report said. In the forprofit model, there may be a need for government subsidies if below-market units are included. Mayor Derek Corrigan said the city is trying to use the amenity bonus housing fund to help replace some of the affordable housing that’s been lost through rezoning for redevelopment. Housing co-operatives were “incredibly successful” in the 1970s and ’80s when senior governments were still involved in producing affordable housing, Corrigan said. “The concept’s a good one. We’re trying to find a way to reinvigorate it and use some of this amenity DHALIWAL bonus money to leverage opportunities for this kind of development to happen in our community.” Coun. Sav Dhaliwal expressed concern that such a project would be the city’s acceptance of provincial and federal government downloading and shirking of its responsibilities for social housing issues. Corrigan was sympathetic but noted the source of the money is not property taxes but developers. The growing concern is that young people can’t afford to buy into their own community, which will increasingly mean people who work in Burnaby won’t live here, creating other issues such as more traffic congestion from commuting workers, he said. Coun. Paul McDonell said such a study will provide information that would provide opportunities for the city to further discuss the housing issue with senior governments. “I always say if you’re going to build a house, put your money into the foundation,” McDonell said. “If you’ve got a solid base you can always move forward.”

construction value for the first seven months of 2013 to $463.4 million. It’s a significant increase from the last few years. Over the same period in 2012 permits issued were valued at $269 million, in 2011, $315.7 million

and in 2010, $293.3 million. There is a potential for a new record to be set. The full-year record was in 2008, before the impact of the global economic downturn, when building permits valued at $792.5 million were issued.

ADRIAN RAESIDE:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Use your head There was a time when not wearing a helmet while cycling or skateboarding was the norm. Not so many years ago, that ‘norm’ became the exception, as injuries and deaths of those partaking in the activities were connected to the distinct lack of head protection. The tragic death in 2001 of well-known local skateboarder ‘Major’ Dave Bowers was attributed in large part to the lack of a helmet. Bowers died of complications arising from a snowboarding accident on Seymour Mountain, in which he fell backwards and hit his head. Others have died since then, while snowboarding, skateboarding, cycling. Sometimes injuries aren’t lifethreatening but they are lifealtering. A blow to the head from contact with hard pavement or frozen snow can instantly render an active, athletic individual helpless, in need of constant care, perhaps unemployable for the rest of their life. Young and old can be seen daily enjoying their sport care- and helmet-free. In the case of the particularly young, there’s no question responsibility rests on the parents. It’s an offence under the Motor Vehicle Act to permit a person under age 16 to operate or ride as a passenger without a helmet. And yet, it’s not uncommon to see parents cycle helmet-free with their children – reinforcing the potentially deadly standard as acceptable. Older riders, simply put, should know better. Of course, there are those who argue helmets aren’t needed; that they deter people from enjoyable outdoor activities. It would appear a wake-up call may be needed to remind people of what they stand to lose should that fateful fall happen. Who, after all, sets out planning to sustain a life-threatening injury? – Peace Arch News

Advice not hard to find When people ask me what I do for work, I like to say that I ask people how to properly spell their names for a living. If a fellow journalist is in the room, I sometimes get a laugh. If not? Crickets. Lately though, I’ve started to give a different answer to that question. “So, what do you do?” “I argue with people about things that don’t really matter.” “Ohhh. Well… that’s nice.” It’s a fun conversation to have. And I’ve had a few fun ones lately. Maybe there’s been an abundance of full moons, or maybe this summer heat is making people go a lil’ loopy – myself included, I’m sure. But whatever the case, I’ve had numerous interesting interactions the past few months. Some of the phone calls and emails are sarcastic, many are exceedingly polite and a few are more vicious than necessary. Nevertheless, let’s just call it all constructive criticism. And so, in a nod to noted philosopher Homer Simpson – who once claimed “self-

Nick Greenizan improvement has always been a passion of mine” – I’ve decided to take the unsolicited advice and run with it. All of it. As such, in the future I vow to heed the following advice: • Write more about girls softball; • Write less about girls softball; • Describe South Surrey businesses as being in White Rock; • “Learn to read a map, fer crissakes!” • Don’t focus so much on junior hockey; • Don’t forget the Surrey Eagles training camp starts this week; • Publish a paper that’s not so damn negative all the time; • Seriously, don’t forget about girls softball; • Stop ignoring every important story in the city; • Stop sucking. (That last one came courtesy

of a recent letter to the editor, regarding the paper’s coverage of local sports. Thanks, as always!) The thing is, a reporter’s job is in the public eye. Our names are on the pages of the paper multiple times each week, and online for eternity. The ability for a reader to send us a comment – good or bad – is but a mouse-click away. Telling me how much I suck takes 10 seconds. (Try it, I’ll time you!) Of course, there are those who get it way worse than any reporter. We live in an era now in which everyone – whether they live in glass houses or not – feels it’s their right to throw stones at whomever, and whatever, they’d like. Want to tell a professional baseball player he’s killing your fantasy team? He’s probably on Twitter. Want to give a review of some musician’s latest work? Find him on Facebook. Want to holler at a politician? Go nuts. (That’s what we pay them for, right?)

to give up entirely. Hmmm, maybe that’s the solution – have all my calls and emails re-routed through six different people first. Of course, a more practical – and visceral – solution would be to return fire with some variation of the old “I don’t come to where you work and yell at you!” retort, but I’ve never done that. The truth is, as reporters, none of it bothers us. We can’t take it personally. Sometimes, we’re actually alerted to a legitimate mistake (rare, of course) or something we’ve missed; and other times, the critique is just fair comment. Maybe sometimes I really am an idiot. Who’s to say? If nothing else, I figured I’d try to disabuse people of the notion that their voices of dissent are too often ignored. They’re not. You’ve been heard loud and clear. I’ll try my best not to suck so much in the future. Promise. Nick Greenizan is a sports reporter for the Peace Arch News.

Wants answers not more hot air from government since we clearly have not been getting the full story so far. First, what exactly is the plan for transporting LNG from the Peace district and other deposits to Asia and our other potential markets, and what kind of consultation has been done with people along the proposed route, including First Nations? Second, what kind of disparity is there between the price of LNG sold within the province and the world standard, and what will the government do to ensure that British Columbians obtain their fair price for our resources? Third, and on a related note, what guarantees are being made by corporations to the government to ensure that British Columbians retain a fair share of the profits of our

natural resources? Finally, what measures are in place to protect the environment both along the route and during the shipping process? This government promised us a grand vision during the election, a vision where we wouldn’t have to worry about debt or the rising costs of government services. The time has long since come to explain how this vision will come to pass. British Columbians deserve the truth about how much starting this industry will cost, and even if it’s possible to reach the profit margins promised by the Premier during this election. We deserve answers, not more hot air.

Lower local speed limits, scooter licensing proposed UBCM poised to debate tricky transportation questions Jeff Nagel Black Press

B.C. cities will next month debate proposals to cut the default speed limit on municipal streets to 40 kilometres per hour and to force licensing and regulation on users of motorized wheelchairs and scooters. The two proposals are among transportationrelated resolutions that will be on the floor at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Vancouver in late September. The City of Victoria is behind the proposed cut in default speed limits from the current 50 km/h – if the lower 40 km/h default limit is adopted by the province, municipalities could still selectively designate specific roads for higher speeds. The resolution asks for provincial aid installing new signage, including signs for roads where the speed limit would be different from the default 40 km/h. The current default is dangerously high on some residential streets, argues Victoria Coun. Shellie Gudgeon. “Even laneways can be 50 km/h if it’s not signed,” Gudgeon told Black Press. “It’s far too fast for neighbourhoods and families.” Ian Tootill of the motorist advocacy group SENSE BC predicts drivers wouldn’t obey a 40 km/h limit and said there’s little evidence of lowspeed fatalities or injuries that could be prevented with an even lower limit. “The people who are driving this agenda are the people who underneath it all are anti-car,” Tootill

said. “A lot of these people don’t even drive.” He said another example of bureaucratic overkill is the “laughable “ proposal to regulate motorized wheelchairs and small mobility scooters. Sidney council argues seniors drive them too fast on sidewalks without any regulation. Their resolution to UBCM urges the province to regulate the use of motorized mobility aids, including wheelchair and scooters, and require training, testing and licensing of operators. There’s currently no registration, insurance or licence required to operate them in B.C. The province has indicated to UBCM it intends to develop a coordinated plan for safe operation of motorized scooters, including possible amendments to the Motor Vehicle Act. The provincial coroner in 2008 issued recommendations supporting scooter regulation after several scooter-riding seniors died in crashes with vehicles. The B.C. Coalition of People with Disabilities opposes the idea. “These are mobility devices that people need to get out into the community,” said executive director Jane Dyson. “Such a regulation would impede their independence.” Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg doesn’t sense it’s a major problem but added “some authority” is probably needed, preferably through provincial law that lets individual cities regulate the machines if they deem it necessary. “People are generally pretty well-behaved,” he said. “Public policy generally should not be developed for exceptions,” he said.

Looking back at the last provincial election, it seems pretty clear that people were willing to take a chance on Premier Clark’s promise of a debt free B.C., all through the magical pixie dust of liquefied natural gas and some hopeful accounting. Since then, reality has decided to intervene, which should come as a shock to absolutely no one, given past promises and results from this government. Let’s recap; last month we learned there are no deals in place with any LNG companies, nor has a route been confirmed for any potential pipeline between the LNG deposits and a port of any kind. At this point I think the minister should clarify a few things with British Columbians,

Environment Minister Mary Polak says advice she got from staff in June on the inadequacy of B.C.’s oil spill response capability largely underscored what the government had already disclosed a year ago. She was responding to the Freedom of Information release of her ministerial briefing book, which warned the environment ministry isn’t adequately staffed to meet existing oil spill risks, let alone those from proposed new export pipelines. “Even a moderate-sized spill would overwhelm the province’s ability to respond and could result in a significant liability for government,” the document said. On land, it noted, an hour-long spill from Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway project could spill 21,000 barrels of diluted bitumen into the B.C. wilderness. Polak said in an interview little of the information came as a surprise. The province last summer released a series of reports that bluntly spelled out B.C.’s deficiencies to backstop its demand – issued at the same time – that any new heavy oil pipeline meet five key conditions, including world-leading marine and land spill protections. Although her briefing book said spill safeguard

requirements imposed on industry in both Washington State and Alaska are “far in excess of what is required in B.C.” the 2012 documents went into considerably more detail. “That’s the entire basis for the work we have undertaken,” Polak said. “What I saw in the briefing notes just added to the urgency of conducting that work. It reminds you that while industry continues to develop and our economy grows, we have not over time kept pace with the changes.” Proposals to improve both marine and land spill responses are in the works for release later this year or early 2014.

Housing affordability worsens: report Jeff Nagel Black Press

The cost of owning a standard detached bungalow in Vancouver now devours 82 per cent of a typical household’s income. That calculation, from RBC Economics Research, is among the findings in its recent housing trends report showing home affordability has taken a hit in B.C. in recent months. RBC’s home affordability measure compares home ownership costs – mortgage payments, utilities and taxes – to median pretax household income and provides plenty of fodder for those who think B.C. real estate costs too much. The Vancouver measure of 82.2 for a bungalow is up 2.2 points from the previous quarter and is far above Toronto’s 54.5, Montreal’s 38 and Calgary’s 33. The measure for B.C. as a whole also rose to 67.6 for bungalows, 72.8 for two-storey homes and 33.8 for condos. In Vancouver, owning a two-storey home took 85.8 per cent of household income, while a condo took 40.7 per cent. “The weakening in affordability is a bit disappointing and the latest setback disrupting the way to healthier housing market conditions in B.C.,” RBC chief economist Craig Wright said. But despite the recent uptick in prices, Wright noted home ownership costs in B.C. are still lower than a year ago, due to a nearly two-year long cooling stretch in the real estate market. Fears of a steep drop in Vancouver real estate appear to have abated, he said, suggesting the “market correction has run its course and that the risk of a catastrophic outcome has greatly moderated.”

Cities target gaps in care for mentally ill Reopening Riverview Hospital among proposals for UBCM Jeff Nagel Black Press

Several Metro Vancouver cities are criticizing the provincial government for mishandling care of the mentally ill and some are going so far as to suggest reopening the closed Riverview psychiatric hospital. The issue is being pushed onto the provincial stage at the Sept. 16-20 Union of B.C. Municipalities convention, where multiple resolutions will target inadequate psychiatric care and the knock-on effects for policing and other services. Maple Ridge council is behind the suggested reinstatement of Riverview Hospital, in Coquitlam, as a “modern centre of excellence” for mental health care and support since it has the necessary infrastructure and a long history. Its resolution argues inadequate treatment and housing for those with mental illness that followed the provincial policy shift

from institutional to community care has led to “unacceptably poor outcomes” for B.C.’s neediest citizens and severe financial and social burdens for local cities. Delta Mayor Lois Jackson supports the concept, provided it’s a fully modern incarnation of Riverview and checks and balances are in place to protect patients. It’s time the issue gets a serious airing, she said. “There’s no place to house people to help them get well and get them back to a productive place in society,” Jackson said. “Everybody talks around it in the Lower Mainland but nobody seems to do anything about assisting these people.” Jackson said a catalyst for her community came in recent years when police took a young North Delta man to Surrey Memorial Hospital. He was later released and went directly to the Alex Fraser Bridge, climbed the railing and jumped. She said it makes no sense to her that in most cases there’s nothing that can apparently be done

but to release a mental health patient back to the community. Delta council has also advanced a resolution to UBCM calling on the province to revamp the intake of mental health patients and set up secure holding facilities with trained guards. Jackson said the aim would be to reduce the time police officers spend waiting in hospital for staff there to take over responsibility for a patient they’ve brought. “It can sometimes be one and a half or two hours depending on what’s going on at the hospital emergency at the time,” she said. “That takes our officers off the road when they be needed somewhere else.” Another Delta resolution would call for the creation by

senior governments of early intervention centres to house mental health or addictions patients who a doctor decides may be a risk to themselves or others. The province says hundreds of mental health beds and other community supports have opened over the years but civic leaders contend it’s not enough and their police increasingly deal with those patients instead of other crime. One of the problems is that, left on their own, people with the most severe mental illnesses don’t seek out care and often end up addicted through selfmedication. Coquitlam Coun. Craig Hodge said he hopes support from UBCM for the Riverview resolution might spur the province to shift its approach on the

future of the 244-acre Riverview lands. Riverview was closed in 2012 after a gradual shutdown over 10 years, with the goal of moving people back to their own community for mental health care. Grass is no longer cut and the buildings are being minimally maintained. Fraser Health still manages three facilities on Riverview for people needing specialized services. And the health authority has a new Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team, which works

specifically with people needing the highest level of care who won’t go to clinics. But Riverview continues to be viewed as a central and ideal location for more services, and Hodge said he believes some of the newer buildings, such as Valleyview, which was shut down last year, could be re-purposed as a shortterm solution for those with the highest need. “There are people on our streets or out of sight that are not getting the care that they need,” Hodge said, suggesting

that, perhaps the move towards de-institutionalization went too far. No long-term plan has yet been released for Riverview and speculation is rife on the property’s future. In an exchange in the legislature this summer, new CoquitlamMaillardville NDP MLA Selina Robinson asked Housing Minister Rich Coleman for assurance the property wouldn’t be parcelled off and sold. Coleman responded that the province sees the property as a “long-term asset” for health care, mental health, addictions and other opportunities to help people in B.C. but wouldn’t be specific as to the future plans. – with files from Diane Strandberg / TriCity News

Another liquor policy reform go toeyed our by website being the province would and click on allow more government liquor stores to sell cold beer and wine, which has long been the domain of private stores. Ten government stores already sell some refrigerated products but the province will now test the waters for a major expansion. Walk-in beer and wine “cold rooms” will open at the end of September at three stores in Burnaby, Duncan and Salmon Arm. That’s the first stage of a pilot project that will add four more walk-in beer and wine refrigeration coolers at existing stores in Oliver, Osoyoos, Mill Bay and Grand Forks later in the fall. The province wants feedback on the idea as part of its alreadylaunched Liquor Policy Review, along with several other proposals for reform. The concept may be in for a rough ride from the organization representing private liquor stores.

CONTESTS

Our routes, they are a changing

The Alliance of Beverage Licensees of B.C. called the move a surprise and said it would throw private outlets and government stores into more direct competition. John Yap, the parliamentary secretary for the liquor policy review, said all other Canadian provinces offer refrigeration in most, if not all, of their government liquor stores. “This is another area where we think B.C. is lagging behind other jurisdictions,” Yap said. “Refrigeration units seem to be very popular with customers, but the public and industry will now have the opportunity to give us feedback on whether this is something they would like to see on a larger scale around the province.” Other potential reforms being explored include licensing farmers’ markets and spas to serve alcohol and letting under-aged children have lunch at a pub with their parents during the day. Public consultations run until Oct. 31 and a website for comments is to launch next month. Don’t expect booze to get cheaper under any future reforms. The province aims to at least maintain if not increase its revenue.

The land response initiative aims to improve prevention and cleanup measures not just for pipelines, but also for hauling petroleum by train or tanker truck. Marine rules also must improve safety not just for oil tankers but less obvious sources of potential spills, Polak said, such as large cargo ships that carry as much bunker fuel oil as a small tanker.

The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada has some advice for parents on teaching their children about money as they head back to school. The agency suggests parents start teaching their children about money when they are young. This way, they will learn how to: • make good decisions about spending now • save for the future • practise good financial habits that will last a lifetime. Canadian and international organizations are working to identify the types of financial knowledge, skills and behaviours children should learn at different ages. “As more financial decisions are faced by Canadians at younger and younger ages, grasping financial principles early in life is crucial to being better prepared to participate in the Canadian and global economy and avoiding pitfalls in financial decision making,” according to the Report of Canada’s Task Force on Financial Literacy written in December 2010. Here are some financial concepts you can discuss with your children as they grow up. For example, help your children learn to: Ages 4 to 8: • understand that people have a limited amount of money to spend • use money to buy basic goods and services for simple transactions • divide allowances or other money received among the financial goals of saving, spending and sharing • understand that there are choices when it comes to money, and that money spent on one thing means that there is less money available for something else. Ages 9 to 14: • recognize the difference between needs and wants • understand the importance of saving a portion (for example, 10 per cent) of all money they receive and the value of an emergency fund Please see MONEY, A16

MAKING A STATEMENT

continued from PAGE A14

• create a savings plan for short-term and long-term financial goals • identify regular financial commitments families have and know that families use household income to meet those commitments • create a simple budget for an activity or event. Ages 15 to 18: • understand the pros and cons of different payment options such as cash, debit cards and credit cards • understand different kinds of basic investments (GICs, stocks, bonds and mutual funds) • understand the time-value of money (for example, past, present and future worth of

money) and opportunity costs • understand the concept of “living within your means” and why it is important. Put your children on the path to financial success and smart decision-making by starting early. You can help them gradually take responsibility for their own financial well-being. Here are a few tips to help you get started: • Talk about money when your children are around so that they become familiar with financial terms and concepts. • Start out easy. With young children, it’s best to start with very basic concepts, such as counting and learning to identify the value of different coins and bills. • Build on the basics. As your

child grows older, introduce more advanced concepts such as needs versus wants, budgeting, and income and expenses. • Learning about finances at a young age will help your child have a better understanding of more complicated financial products in the future, such as credit cards, loans and investments. • Look for teachable moments. Running errands and visiting stores are opportunities to teach your children about money and involve them in the buying process. For example, check for weekly in-store specials or go through flyers together to look for coupons for items on your shopping list. Check the cost of similar products made by different brands.

Power of attorney a good idea

GET YOUR TICKETS TODAY STARTING AT ONLY

One important back-to-school item that most post-secondary students may not be aware of is a power of attorney for parents, particularly when adult children are studying away from home. They may still need help with day-to-day issues such as banking, paying bills, or even making arrangements for rentals in their name. According to the Society of Notaries Public of BC, the only way to do those things for adult children is if the parent or parents have power of attorney.

“We see situations where power of attorney is needed for a young adult more often than you might think,” says John Eastwood, President of the Society of Notaries Public of BC. “You don’t always know when a power of attorney arrangement will be needed, and they simplify handling financial matters.” Powers of attorney require the signature of both parties and can be put in place by a notary (www.notaries.bc.ca.)

Along with free gate admission, visitors can enjoy free carousel rides sponsored by the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 23, which represents Burnaby civic workers, and Burnaby’s Parks, Recreation and Culture Commission. The fair runs from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sept. 2, the last day of the museum’s summer season, and features heritage-style games of skill and chance, corn-shucking contests, sack races and family entertainment. Funmobile will be onsite with hula hoops, skipping ropes and balls for some low-tech fun. Jeremy Meugens will demonstrate his amazing yo-yo skills. KC the Clown will be on hand riding a 12-inch bike and entertaining with magic and balloon creatures. Cinemazoo will be there to delight and educate with their animal friends. And Richard Tyce will perform foot-stomping polkas with his accordion and tenor voice. From 2 to 4 p.m. visitors will also get to watch and hear the recording of an episode of Melodies in Mind, a nationally syndicated radio show featuring musical guests and a host with a dry sense of humour, performed live. The sociallyconscious folk music program will be broadcast

about hiring intentions and job security over the last three years, according to the third annual BMO Labour Day Survey. The study, conducted by Pollara, found that more than half of Canadians (53 per cent) think the company they work for is growing and will be hiring more employees. This number represents a marked increase from 28 per cent in 2011. In B.C., however, only 47 per cent believed their company would be growing, the lowest in the country. “This increasing optimism among Canadian workers is very encouraging and is an accurate

reflection of what we’re hearing when speaking to our clients,” said Steve Murphy, senior vice-president, BMO Commercial Banking. “With companies planning to invest in their employees and grow their workforce, new doors will open for increased productivity and expansion into new markets.” The study also found the number of people who feel comfortable with their overall level of job security is up, from 51 per cent in 2011 to 81 per cent this year, an increase of 30 per cent. British Columbians matched the national response at 81 per cent. “The unemployment

rate continues to gradually decline, dipping to 7.2 per cent in the latest month versus 7.3 per cent at this time last year. While the improvement is modest, the job market is much healthier than three-to-four years ago when the rate temporarily moved above 8 per cent,” said Doug Porter, chief economist, BMO Financial Group. “And while not much lower than the current U.S. rate of 7.4 per cent, other indicators suggest the Canadian job market overall is in considerably stronger shape than its U.S. counterpart.” Please see PROMOTIONS, A26

Promotions, raises expected: BMO study ⫸

continued from A24

When it comes to expectations for the coming year, half (50 per cent) of workers expect to receive a promotion or a raise. This is up 11 per cent from last year, and 22 per cent from 2011. The British Columbia rate, though, was 45 per cent. The Pollara survey was completed online July 12-16, with a sample of 1,005 Canadians 18 years of age and older.

Dutch landscapes, portraits featured at BAG The Dutch countryside will be featured in an upcoming show at the Burnaby Art Gallery. Storms and Bright Skies: Three centuries of Dutch landscapes, and Inner Realms: Dutch Portraits, will be on display at the gallery from Sept. 6 to Nov. 17. Storms and Bright Skies is organized by the National Gallery of Canada. It explores the emergence of the landscape tradition in the early 17th century before blossoming into its golden age and then into the 18th and 19th centuries. “Some of the greatest Dutch artists, including Jan van Goyen, Jacob van Ruisdael and Rembrandt—represented in Inner Realms: Dutch Portraits with four of his famous etching—brilliantly contributed to the rise of landscape as a full blown pictorial genre. These developments would greatly influence the course of art history in the Netherlands, which was a strong trading, military, scientific and artistic power,” said a press release. Inner Realms is on loan from the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. It includes drawings, etchings and oils by Dutch masters such as Adriaen van Ostade and Cornelis Janssens van Ceulen in addition to Rembrandt. Admission is by donation, suggested at $10. The gallery is at 6344 Deer Lake Ave. • The opening reception will be held in the upper and lower gallery on Sept. 6, 7-9 p.m. A tour and lunch will be held the next day from noon to 1 p.m. Call 604-297-4422 to reserve a space. • Art historian Paula Swart will present a talk on Dutch artists and landscapes near The Hague on Saturday, Sept. 14, 3 p.m. This event focuses on the 17-19th century Dutch artists, who lived in or near the city of The Hague, centre of court and government. “Genius of place” is often cited as a crucial factor in the creative process and artistic development of an artist. What was the role of the city of The Hague, and its immediate environment, in attracting artists and nourishing creative relationships?

Dutch landscapes and portraits will be on display at the Burnaby Art Gallery from Sept. 6 to Nov. 17.

• As part of Burnaby’s upcoming Culture Days event the gallery will hold a guided tour with assistant curator Jennifer Cane on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2 p.m.., including a free tour of the Dutch exhibitions. • Dutch Films in the Sky will be shown at Civic Square, Bob Prittie Library (Metrotown) on Saturday, Sept. 28, 7-9 p.m. when there will be an outdoor screening of Alexander Korda’s 1936 biographic film about Dutch artist Rembrandt van Rijn, and Michael Dudok de Wit’s 2000 Oscar winning animated short film, Father and Daughter.

Feeling the Breeze in South Surrey with Adera By Kerry Vital

South Surrey is a vibrant, thriving neighbourhood with tons of amenities around. Now Adera is offering a bit of natural serenity with its townhome project, Breeze. Located just moments from Morgan Crossing and Grandview Corners, you’ll be able to take advantage of everything the neighbourhood has to offer, including shopping, dining and recreation.

Inside your home, you’ll find a spacious open floorplan with plenty of contemporary features. Among them is a chef ’s kitchen with a dining island, stainless-steel appliances, granite/quartz countertops and a modern designer glass tile backsplash. The entire kitchen is complemented by the Metropolitan Evoke Wide Plank laminate flooring that continues through the living and dining area, with plush carpeting in the bedrooms and large porcelain tile in the bathrooms.

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

There are four different two- and three-bedroom floorplans available at Breeze, ranging from approximately 1,122 to 1,445 square feet. Adera is now offering homeowners a seriously amazing way to personalize their homes. Called I.D. By Me, the program allows the buyer to be their own interior designer and choose their colour scheme, upgrade finishes or fixtures and several other choices. Among the options at Breeze are adding heated floors in the bathrooms, upgrading the kitchen appliances and adding a washer/dryer package, along with several other ways to make your home your own. Adera has long been committed to sustainable and green buildings, and this continues with Breeze. Among the ecologically friendly features you’ll find here are LED street lamps (a first for Surrey), motion sensor lights in the bathrooms and ENERGY STAR-rated windows and appliances. The lush landscaping outside easily showcases the green lifestyle you will live at Breeze. All of the materials used in construction are locally sourced, reducing the carbon footprint. For more information about Breeze and other Adera projects, and the I.D. By Me program, visit www.adera.com.

The homes at Avra are full of luxurious finishes such as granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances, above. Residents will also be able to take advantage of the gorgeous seaside location and on-site amenities.

Affordable luxury in White Rock at Avra By Kerry Vital

Amenities and amazing homes abound in White Rock, but the Avra Development Group is bringing something new to the area with Avra, its condominium development in uptown White Rock that combines curb appeal, location and high-end design in one gorgeous package. “People have nothing but great things to say about Avra,” says Vice-President and Director Chris Tsakumis. “The response has been overwhelmingly positive.”

The homes are move-in-ready and available for a quick possession, Tsakumis says. “We’ve responded to the market’s request for larger suites,” he says, noting the availability of custom homes that are actually two floorplans combined together to make a single suite. These range from about 1,300 to over 1,600 square feet, which Tsakumis says has been particularly attractive to downsizers. “These allow our downsizing clients to find something they’re comfortable with,” he says. “It’s been received really positively.” Tsakumis says that residents don’t have to give up some of their possessions when they purchase one of the custom floorplans, simply due to how spacious they are. There are three different custom plans available in the building, along with a penthouse floorplan. It’s obvious that the developer has gone above and beyond with Avra, and is catering to buyers who are looking for a gorgeous seaside lifestyle and plenty of space to live or relax. “No other community can offer something

custom like this,” Tsakumis says. “Avra is the only concrete high-rise community with brand-new extra-large two and three bedroom suites.” The high-end features at Avra are definitely one of the biggest draws for buyers. Gourmet kitchens with granite countertops, beech or oak wood veneer cabinetry and stainlesssteel appliances will suit any chef. Some homes include an integrated workstation; a convenient touch for those who work at home or study. The bathrooms are soothing and luxurious, with their own elegant cabinets, marble slab countertops and backsplash and a bathtub fit for a spa. The Kuzco chrome-finish wall sconce puts everyone in the best light, and is complemented by the framed silver vanity mirror and sleek ceramic tile tub and shower surround. “There’s a great architectural vision and design here,” Tsakumis says. “We are very confident in the product we’ve built. It’s

affordable luxury.” Avra is perfectly located to take advantage of the amenities on offer in White Rock. The building is moments away from shopping at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre and other local boutiques, as well as dining, services, leisure and recreation. You’re also situated near excellent schools, including Semiahmoo Secondary with its International Baccalaureate program. That school has been a major draw for families looking for the best education for their children, Tsakumis says. Perhaps best of all, you’re just minutes from the White Rock waterfront. Because of this, the views from your new home and its floorto-ceiling windows are simply incredible. Inside Avra itself, you’ll find a fully furnished entertainment lounge with a full kitchen, a fitness centre, barbecue patio and guest suite, as well as several outdoor courtyards. A live-in resident manager is available as well, providing hotel-style service to each resident. Homes start at $319,900, with the custom floorplans starting in the low $700,000s. For more information, visit www.avraliving.com, call 604-531-9030 or visit the sales centre at 1455 George Street, open Saturday through Wednesday between noon and 5 p.m.
