Susan Taylor and Harvey Martens say residents of a townhouse complex near the Sperling SkyTrain station are fed up with pedestrians cutting through their complex to get to the station. They say a lock on an access gate was broken, grass has been trampled and there’s been an increase in break-ins.

For the first 27 years of its existence, Sperling Townhouses was just another Burnaby residential complex, located in the 6700-block of Kneale Place.

Recycling and garbage bins are a familiar sight around Simon Fraser University’s Burnaby campus. Not due to any particular green bent of students, but because of their usefulness in catching leaks from above. “Garbage cans that collect leaks are insanely common on this campus,” said Julia Lane, coordinating and external relations officer for the SFU Graduate Students Society (GSS). Leaks are just one of the more visible symptoms of the ongoing issue of deferred maintenance at the university on Burnaby Mountain. The GSS and SFU Students Society (SFU SS) are working together to advocate for increased funding to address the ongoing maintenance issues. SFU’s five-year capital plan, released in 2011, stated 54 per cent of the Burnaby campus’ buildings are classified as being in “poor” condition, with another 27 per cent described as “fair.” Please see WHO, A3

Who should maintain public buildings? ⫸
from FRONT PAGE
It estimated that $20 million annually would be needed for repairs and maintenance just to maintain the status quo. Provincial funding earmarked for maintenance was $4.6 million in 2008-2009, only to drop to about $500,000 two years later, noted Chardaye Bueckert, SFU SS external relations officer. A few years ago, the GSS asked students to submit photos of problem areas and received more than 200 examples. Many of the images are striking: a large trail of dark green algae growing down a wall stemming from a pipe leak; broken ceiling CONTRIBUTED PHOTOS tiles; a light fixture repaired with Just a few of the issues identified at SFU duct tape; peeling carpet and included extensive mould and algae buildup, plastic baseboard; mineral buildup and broken and cracked structures such as this condemned set of stairs. on walls from leaks; exposed rebar; cracks on concrete walls and staircases; a rotting wood that new buildings continue to be same pot of funding. walkway; and black mould. added to the campus. “Yes, we have a deferred The mould in the education “New buildings … are just maintenance problem as does building was so bad one faculty sexier.

And adding to the concern is schools which all compete for the That’s set to be boosted to $2.2
million this year. This year, SFU will also divert about $3 million from the operating budget and other sources to help make up the difference, Hibbitts said. In total, however, SFU estimates $160 million is needed to cover the most significant building maintenance needs. She confirmed there are mould issues in the education building and as soon as it was found people were moved out. Areas where mould has been identified are being repaired “but eventually the whole building will have to be redone, building envelope and windows and all those kinds of things,” she said. “It is a question of public policy. Where does the responsibility lie for the maintenance of public buildings?” Jane Shin, New Democrat MLA for Burnaby-Lougheed, said the need for repairs and maintenance is no different from responsible home ownership. “We’re looking at a situation if the maintenance is deferred any longer than this … the cost of repair is actually going to exceed the cost of just to replace. And so we’d be looking at wasting the building’s full shelf-life potential and that’s a huge waste of taxpayer dollars.” In an emailed statement, the Ministry of Advanced Education confirmed SFU will receive $2.2 million for routine capital funding for 2013-2014 and that since 2001, it has received $62 million to address deferred maintenance. “Ideally, we would love to provide access to funding but due to tight fiscal restraints felt throughout the sector, we have had to work with institutions such as SFU to focus on priority areas,” the ministry said. twitter.com/wandachow
Strata seeks help ⫸
from FRONT PAGE
The chain-link fence separating the complex from the city walkway also currently sports a large hole someone cut through it. Signs telling people not to trespass or threatening to tow vehicles are routinely ignored. When confronted by residents, some trespassers reply with verbal abuse or threatening behaviour. Back in the spring, a Burnaby RCMP officer did an assessment of the complex and recommended changes to improve its security. The strata is now considering upgrading and extending the fencing to keep trespassers out. But the move will be a costly one for the owners in the complex, Taylor noted. Martens added the strata is also seeking the assistance of Burnaby city hall and TransLink. “We believe this is not something we should deal with all on our own.” Burnaby’s deputy city manager Lambert Chu said a letter about the issue from Taylor has been referred to the community policing committee for discussion. “The city would like to receive some input from the committee members before establishing a position on this matter,” Chu said by email. “Enhanced signage and improved fence gate security would definitely help to deter unwanted traffic through the townhouse complex.”

Police school-zone blitz nets 35 tickets Most due to speed, distracted driving
“That’s the primary cause of problems is the speed. People can’t react, can’t stop fast enough, kids don’t perceive them, other parents who are pulling over, if it’s not in the parking lot at the school, don’t see cars coming through, so it’s a big hazard.” Teams of officers are at three to five schools per day during the before- and after-school periods. The enforcement efforts are scheduled to last two weeks. Motorists also need to watch where they’re stopping or parking in school zones, Bell said. No-stopping zones are marked but not always.
Burnaby RCMP’s traffic officers issued 35 tickets on the first day of school Tuesday, the result of increased enforcement in school zones. Sgt. Dave Bell of the traffic section said officers were at several of the busier school zones to remind motorists that kids have returned to classes. Most of the tickets handed out were for speed and distracted driving, such as people using their cellphones, Bell said, in addition to the occasional seatbelt infraction.
“What happens is … drivers are stopping in front of the school or at a corner of an intersection … and vehicles coming around the corner can’t see. They’re stopping in locations where the visibility for other drivers and pedestrians is obstructed and that creates a serious hazard.” On major arterial routes, such as Kensington Avenue, officers have to contend with motorists who aren’t dropping kids at school and forget to obey signs and school zone speed limits, Bell said. He noted that school zone speed limits are only in effect from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on days when school is in session.
Rotary seeks coats for kids The Rotary Coats for Kids campaign kicks off on Saturday, Sept. 7 in Civic Square, next to the Bob Prittie Metrotown Library, from 8:30 to 11 a.m. Rotary members will be at Burnaby Public Library’s annual pancake breakfast and summer reading club medal

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
A bit bloated ICBC is hiking auto insurance premiums almost five per cent in the latest government tax gouge. Make no mistake, the public insurer is just another arm of B.C.’s bloated government bureaucracy. This B.C. Liberal government’s constant messaging about what a low-tax regime it is offering rings hollow considering the premium it attaches to so many government services, from ferries, to MSP premiums, even toll bridges. Critics, including the Consumers Association of Canada, point out that ICBC has become a cash cow for the government. The association says that since taking office, the Liberals have taken more than $1.2 billion out of ICBC. Yet now ICBC says it needs 4.9 per cent more in basic insurance. At the same time, the insurer forecasts a net income of $230 million this year and next. The corporation is accumulating funds. In 2002, ICBC’s reserves were $314 million – and there should be surplus to safeguard an insurer against an unexpected spike in claims. But there was a loud protest from critics when the agency said it would bring the reserves to $1 billion. By 2010, they were at $3.8 billion. There should be a formal determination of how much the Crown corporation needs in reserve, expressed as a percentage of the agency’s annual payout for injury settlements. The remainder of the reserves must be returned to B.C. drivers in the form of lower premiums. For years, ICBC has been allowed to take the tactic of raising basic premiums, while lowering optional product prices to compete with private insurers. There is only one good reason to have government in the insurance business – cheaper insurance for taxpayers. But it’s not. – Maple RidgePitt Meadows News

Killing TransLink and regional vision Not that I want to publicize Jordan Bateman (the local spokesman for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation) even more, since the media do enough of that already (and let’s face it, I get my fair share of coverage too)—but in the absence of leadership from local leaders, his strategy regarding the transit referendum may well prevail. And what strategy is that? Why, getting people to vote against their self-interest in order to effectively disable TransLink— and with it, the regional vision we have pursued for decades with considerable success. Not, of course, that Metro citizens will intend to vote against more transit or a more sustainable region. But thanks to Jordan’s strategy, that’s what will happen. Here’s how the strategy works. 1. First, discredit government—in this case, TransLink, and the collective goods we pay for with taxes. Ignore the larger purpose of the organization and concentrate on the ‘bureaucrats,’ whom you can
Gordon Price dismiss contemptuously. 2. To do that, use small examples, real or manufactured, to tar the entire organization. Whether free coffee for staff, bonuses for executives, teething problems for Compass Cards, policing costs (or not enough policing), the installation of fare gates (or not installing fare gates), it doesn’t matter what the examples are—so long as there is a steady beat of criticism, amplified for and by the media. 3. Maintain that any new programs can be paid for by eliminating “waste, fraud and abuse.” Never give credit for any instances where that actually occurs. TransLink has already had three performance reviews and an audit, it has already saved millions in “efficiencies” (often a
7438 Fraser Park Dr., Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9 email@example.com burnabynewsleader.com | newwestnewsleader.com
euphemism for cuts)—but never mind. Always maintain that spending is “out of control.” 4. Establish the bottom line as “No More Taxes.” Do not ever get into a debate about the value and merit of what those taxes purchase. Simply repeat, and repeat: NMT. 5. Suggest that voters can “send TransLink a message” by voting for “none of the above” on the transit-funding referendum. It matters not that eliminating the entire administration of TransLink (about four percent of its budget) would barely pay for a few more bus routes, much less a multi-billion-dollar rapidtransit line. Insist that cutting salaries and perks is a necessary condition (though never sufficient) before discussing new revenues. At that point, simply assert that we’re taxed out, even if we’re paying less taxes or getting new services. By aggressively attacking the organization so that those in favour of a new tax will have to defend it before they can argue in favour of its funding, you disarm
the proponents before they even begin a “yes” campaign. Meanwhile, time is running out—434 days left til Nov. 15 (though it’s possible that the referendum might be held in May or June)—and we haven’t even got the wording yet, much less leadership for a yes vote. One wonders whether the CTF was instrumental in convincing the Premier to go with the referendum idea during the election, since it gives them an ideal platform to pursue their agenda. Better yet, blame for a No vote can be put on local politicians for their inability to convince the electorate. And the subsequent cutbacks on local transit services as other sources of revenue decline thereby justify another round of criticism of TransLink. It just doesn’t get any better than that.

COMMENT Re: Hooped without a good dental plan (Column, NewsLeader, Aug. 28) Like any journalist, Sandy Macdougall has an obligation to get his facts right. In justifying illegal dentistry by unqualified and unsafe practitioners, he has undermined the more important public policy debate around access to dental care and funding for oral health. The fact that Tung Sheng Wu operated out of his home was not the problem. Real dentists who work out of their homes must meet the high standards of competent care expected of every dentist registered with the College of Dental Surgeons of BC (CDSBC). Their facilities must meet infection control standards established by CDSBC, as well as building code and other safety standards/regulations. Mr. Wu did none of these things. He risked his clients’ health for his own gain. We do not deny that illegal dental practices may exist, and the Tung Sheng Wu case may spark similar reports. However, we have no evidence that they are widespread. Anyone can confirm that their dentist is registered by going to the Directory of Dentists at www.cdsbc.org. If the person they are seeing for dental care is not registered/ licensed they should contact CDSBC. We cannot assume that the cost of dentistry is the sole reason Mr. Wu’s clientele chose to go to him. Evidence indicates that many of his patients were affluent and could well afford to go to a registered dentist. Others may have come from jurisdictions where dentistry is not regulated and may not have known he was operating illegally. The facts are that the overwhelming majority of dentists are highly competent, ethical, caring professionals, many of whom make special payment arrangements for patients in financial need. Many dentists donate their time at free or reduced-cost dental clinics around the province (for a listing, go to www.bcdental.org). The issue of access to dental care is an important one. It
requires a thoughtful and informed conversation. Mr. Macdougall’s column falls far short of the mark. Jerome Marburg Registrar and CEO College of Dental Surgeons of BC
ALL IS NOT AS IT SEEMS Re: MP, writer working together wonders prof (Letters, NewsLeader, Aug. 9) In Mr. Grigory Khaskin’s opinion piece questioning the science of global warming, he made a number of claims that were subsequently refuted by one of his targets, Victor Finberg. That is not why I am writing. It is instead Mr. Khaskin’s use of his academic credentials that I question. He signs his letter as “Dr. Grigory Khaskin (Chemistry) Simon Fraser University.” The headline at the top of page A7 suggested Mr. Khaskin is a professor of chemistry at our world-famous university on Burnaby Mountain. Such a claim confers credibility and reputation that must be proven. Appearances, as we know, can be misleading. I decided, as Mr. Khaskin’s title had the air of representing SFU’s academic community, to find out if his statements were generating any controversy on campus. A search of SFU’s chemistry department webpage reveals no such person. I decided to search the university database for any reference to Mr. Khaskin. Success! But wait. Articles attributed to Mr. Khaskin clearly state he is a research associate in the biology department at SFU. OK, so his articles must have something to do with climate effects on plants or animals, right? But again, no, this is not the case. His research relates to entomology (insects) and pheromones (scents), and the titles of his articles shed no light on their relationship with global warming – or its lack, as he suggests. OK, so his article reflects his opinion as an individual, but not as an expert in the field of climate science. Did Mr. Khaskin misrepresent himself in defending global warming denial?
Perhaps, but that would be at the risk of his academic reputation, as well as that of the university his work represents. You would have to ask him if it was accidental or intentional. I am not questioning whether Mr. Khaskin has a PhD, making him a ‘doctor’ in his field of study. (In his case, he has a PhD in physio-organic chemistry from the Ukraine.) For the record, however, he is not a chemistry professor at SFU, but a biology research associate. An important distinction, one that Mr. Khaskins’s use of his title only confuses. I am also not questioning Mr. Khaskin’s right to an opinion on the role of human factors in global warming, however heartily I may disagree with that opinion. (And I do disagree with that opinion.) I do, however, question why this paper chose not to perform a fact check on Mr. Khaskin’s academic credentials before printing his opinion piece without an appropriate disclaimer. I also have to wonder how many readers were misled into believing Mr. Khaskin’s opinions on global warming represent those of the larger SFU community, and that he is a chemistry professor there. This is where a little investigative journalism would have clarified the situation. That didn’t happen here. Journalistic integrity and academic integrity are equally important values, are they not?

Sex assault suspect sought Transit Police are trying to identify a suspect in three sexual assaults on SkyTrain over the long weekend. At about 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 31, the suspect boarded SkyTrain No. 139 at Edmonds station in Burnaby. He moved behind a woman and started touching her inappropriately, causing the victim to move away, say Transit Police. He was then seen to approach at least two other women who he rubbed and touched in a sexual manner. A witness took photos of the suspect, who was last seen on the train heading toward downtown Vancouver. The man is described as possibly Hispanic, 25 to 40 years old, fivefoot-five to five-foot-eight, with short black hair. He was wearing a white T-shirt with a grey emblem and an unknown word on the front, black shorts, sunglasses and earbud headphones. Only the first victim identified

SFU sues man, claiming fraud Alleges that almost $850,000 was obtained Vikki HOPES Black Press
Simon Fraser University (SFU) is suing an man who is alleged to have fraudulently obtained almost $850,000 from the university while he was the director of finance in the faculty of science. In the notice of civil claim filed in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver, SFU alleges that chartered accountant Siamak Saidi, 54, submitted and endorsed false invoices to the institution for supplies ordered from six companies for which he is listed as director. The claim states that SFU neither ordered nor received any of the supplies. The institution alleges that Saidi, whose residence is listed in Abbotsford, used the misappropriated funds to purchase properties, make improvements to properties, and pay for mortgages. The court documents list three properties – in Belcarra,
Burnaby and Abbotsford – as having allegedly benefited from the funds. Saidi was employed with SFU from June 2010 until he was terminated in January 2012 due to restructuring. A new manager noticed some irregularities in Saidi’s recordkeeping, according to the court documents. An RCMP investigation led to Saidi being charged earlier this month with fraud over $5,000, theft over $5,000, forgery and using a forged document. His next appearance in Vancouver provincial court on the criminal charges is scheduled for today (Thursday). The civil suit states that Saidi’s alleged actions have damaged the university. “Saidi’s wrongful conduct was directed at SFU for the purpose of causing harm and loss to SFU or to gain improper personal benefit for himself or for others as directed by him, and with the knowledge of Saidi that his actions would, or would likely, cause harm to SFU.”
Saidi is currently on leave from his position as manager of financial services with the Cultus Lake Park Board. The board released a statement, saying they had reviewed all their accounts and investments and found that no unauthorized transactions had taken place. The university is seeking total compensation of $846,926. An order has been granted to freeze Saidi’s assets, including the three properties in question. The allegations in the civil claim have not yet been proved in court nor has Saidi filed a response.

B.C. chamber calls expedited removal power ‘draconian’ Jeff Nagel Black Press
A provision that lets American border guards arbitrarily bar Canadians from entering the U.S. for at least five years is under fire from B.C. business leaders who see it as a major threat to cross-border enterprise. The B.C. Chamber of Commerce has joined a lawsuit filed in the U.S. that aims to quash the so-called “expedited removal” process. Typically, B.C. residents barred from entry under the provision have been deemed by U.S. border staff to have lied under questioning about the reason for their visit. “It seems like it’s pretty arbitrary in its application,” said Bellingham immigration lawyer Greg Boos, who has filed a submission in a U.S. court on behalf of the B.C. chamber, the Whatcom County chamber and other stakeholders. Expedited removal consists of an automatic ban on entering the U.S. for either five years or for life and there’s no avenue for appeal to the courts. Boos said B.C. businesses with key staffers who service equipment they’ve sold to American clients have been barred, causing chaos for the affected firms. “If it was applied to the CEO of a B.C. company doing business in the United States, it would be disastrous for that company,” he said.
Boos said bans on B.C. vacationing. residents through the provision “Usually it happens because have been sporadic so far, but they think the person is coming there have been signs its use will down to do something other grow. than what they claim.” Some “hard core” border Saunders recounts another guards use it more than others, case involving a retired he said, and one in Blaine Abbotsford church minister boasted about denying more who was regularly crossing the Canadians entry than any other border to go to Lynden to cover staffer. for the local minister for three “This has a chilling effect weeks. on cross-border trade and The first two times he merely commerce,” Boos said, said he was visiting the church adding it’s open to abuse and when asked his reason for discrimination. coming to the U.S. He’s confident the legal The third time he said he was challenge should succeed covering for the colleague. because the U.S. Although the minister enabling regulations was being paid only a indicate Canadian nonsmall per diem and didn’t immigrants aren’t to be consider himself to be subjected to expedited working in the U.S., CBP removal. officers decided he’d lied The only problem, to them the previous two Boos he said, is persuading trips and banned him for the U.S. ninth circuit five years. court of appeals that it has the “If they can give an expedited jurisdiction to rule that border removal to a minister from staff are overstepping their Abbotsford, they can give one powers. to anyone,” Saunders said.

Knights slay Crusaders The St. Thomas More Knights started off the AAA varsity football season with a dominating 43-0 triumph over their independent Catholic school rival Holy Cross Crusaders in Surrey on Friday. Although quarterback Chase Malcolm only threw for 73 yards he did connect on two touchdown passes to Malcolm Lee and one each to Matt Duda and Nick Landoit. Jordan Mackenzie and Noah Usherwood scored rushing TDs. MacKenzie only carried the ball twice; one was a run of two yards and the other he romped for 83. On defence, Usherwood had five tackles as did Kevin Marshall and Andrew Flett.
Dolesau scores as Bears beat up on Rock Joe Dolesau of the Burnaby Lake Rugby Club scored a try to help the B.C. Bears pick up their
first win at the 2013 Canadian Rugby Championship being held in Langford. The Bears defeated The Rock, representing Quebec and the Maritimes, 40-18. Dolesau, an inside centre, was also a big influence in B.C.’s first try in the 24th minute when he sprinted down the wing, shook off several tacklers before giving the ball to Luke Campbell for the try. The victory was the first in three games for B.C. The defending champion Ontario Blues beat the Bears 11-7 in Langford last Friday. Dolesau shook off several tacklers before giving the ball to Matt Buckley for the Bears’ only try in the 12th minute. Other BLRC players on the Bears roster include Anthony Luca, Andrew Lackner, Scott McKay, Steve Battie, Evan Thomas and Admir Cejanovic, who was a reserve Monday.
B.C. will play their final games of the championship on the road against the Ontario Blues on Sept. 14 and the Prairie Wolf Pack in Edmonton on Sept. 21.

Live, work and play at MOSAIC’s Fremont Blue By Kerry Vital
MOSAIC Homes is bringing a touch of colour to Port Coquitlam with Fremont Blue, their new townhome development that’s a paradise for outdoor lovers. The second phase starts sales this month. “This is the most exciting property today,” says MOSAIC’s Geoff Duyker. “It’s just a beautiful place to live.” Fremont Blue is bordered by the Pitt River, the 25-kilometre
Traboulay Trail and park land. “We’ve had people stop by the Home Store on their bikes after getting off the trail,” Duyker says. “It’s really rare to be able to live in this kind of setting.” The homes themselves include open-plan layouts with plenty of space to relax or entertain, oversized windows and nine-foot ceilings throughout the main living areas to maximize your sense of space. “We are doing what we do well in terms of creating beautiful
NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT
housing,” Duyker says. “MOSAIC has a long track record of building sought-after homes.” Fremont Blue will be part of the master-planned Fremont community, which will include shopping and restaurants. You’ll also be close by schools, leisure and recreation opportunities, as well as the convenience of the Port Mann Bridge, or commuting to Burnaby or Vancouver without having to cross the river. “The whole neighbourhood is going to look a lot different in a few years,” says Duyker. “You could literally live, work and play here. This is the most significant master-planned development in the region.” Buyers will also have access to the Fremont Riverclub, which will include 12,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, including a lap pool, outdoor cooking area, gym, fitness studio and a great room with a big-screen TV, lounge, pool table, card tables and entertainment kitchen and bar, among many other things. Homes start in the mid-$300,000s. For more information, visit mosaichomes.com, call 604-552-0319 or visit the Home Store at 2332 Ranger Lane, open between noon and 6 p.m.
Kitsilano is a vibrant neighbourhood, and Kits360 is perfectly situated to take advantage of every amenity, above right. Among the gorgeous features you’ll find in your new home at Kits360 are stainless-steel appliances and high-gloss cabinetry, below right.
A well-rounded life at Kits360 By Kerry Vital
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver’s most desirable areas, with its array of amenities and outdoor activities all in one place. Intergulf Development Group is now bringing an equally enticing offer to the neighbourhood with Kits360. “Kits is one of the best neighbourhoods in Vancouver,” says project manager Macartney Greenfield. “We named the project Kits360 because there are amenities in literally every direction.” That’s no exaggeration. Kits360 is just steps from the 5th Avenue Cinemas, shopping on West 4th Avenue and recreation on the seawall. You’re also minutes from South
Granville, Yaletown, Granville Island and downtown Vancouver, as well as Kits Beach, Kits Pool and the boardwalk trail. “Kits is a very vibrant community,” Greenfield says. “And that atmosphere can be found in the community of Kits360 as well.” The homes are completed and move-in ready now, which Greenfield says is one of the big draws for buyers. “There’s been a lot of excitement around completion,” she says. “Many happy homeowners have already moved in, and there’s already a great energy within the building. This is definitely an opportunity you can’t miss. It’s a phenomenal place to live.” The final release of inventory at Kits360 features just 15 two-bedroom suites and penthouse homes, ranging from 776 to about 978 square feet. Many homes feature fantastic ocean, mountains or city views and space for outdoor entertaining. “They’re really the cream of the crop. The floorplans available give you lots of flexibility depending on how you live your life,”
Greenfield says, noting that both downsizers and growing families alike have found their dream home at Kits360. “Our floorplans are designed to make condo living a reality for our buyers with flex spaces for their home office, nursery, or whatever they may need,” she says. Each home is spacious and open, with plenty of room to entertain or relax. The kitchens are particularly beautiful. “The kitchen is really the jewel of your home,” Greenfield says. “It’s a huge focus for people and Intergulf did it right.” The stainless-steel appliances are complemented by a modern stone backsplash high-gloss cabinetry and stone countertops. “You can spend tons of time entertaining in here,” Greenfield says. You’ll find engineered laminate wood flooring throughout your new space, as well as over-height ceilings in most homes and a stackable washer/dryer. The bathrooms hold luxurious soaker tubs and plenty of thoughtful details.
“Older homes in Kits don’t have these features,” Greenfield says. “This is a rare opportunity to get this calibre of living and this address.” The amenities at Kits360 are truly topnotch, including an expansive rooftop terrace and outdoor barbecue with a garden, lounge and kitchen area, as well as a courtyard water feature and two fully equipped fitness centres. There is also a 24-hour concierge and bike storage space. With all the amenities available at Kits360, there’s an immediate feeling of luxury as you step inside the building. It’s also obvious that the project fits perfectly into the neighbourhood and everything that makes the area so great. The final release of two-bedroom homes at Kits360 start at $599,900. For more information, visit www.kits360.com, call 604-737-0360 or visit the sales office at 1777 West 7th Avenue, open starting Saturday Sept. 7 from 12 to 5 p.m. daily except Friday, or by appointment.
