David Sarraf is thrilled about his latest property acquisition in New Westminster’s Downtown. He’s bought five buildings along Columbia Street in recent years and does much of the work to restore some of their heritage characteristics himself.

David Sarraf isn’t quite the King of Columbia Street yet. But he’s working on it. Sarraf recently acquired his fifth building on Downtown New Westminster’s main drag, making him one of the strip’s most prolific landlords. His holdings include the building housing The British Store; the block of two buildings,

including the Paramount, between He also owns other buildings Mckenzie Street and the new Trapp in the city, including a law office & Holbrook development; as well on Carnarvon beside the Supreme as the building Court and a couple kitty-corner from of houses further it across Columbia Uptown that are that houses a DNA David Sarraf also zoned for you should not have losers testing lab, a cigar commercial use. store and pizza shop as tenants. if you bring bad All of the tenants, you are shooting amongst its myriad buildings are older, yourself in the foot. tenants. and much to the Sarraf’s latest delight of the city’s property is at the southeast corner heritage planner Julie Schueck, of Sixth and Columbia, directly Sarraf is committed to restoring across from the police station. and maintaining much of their

historic characteristics. “He’s really giving those buildings back their lives,” said Schueck. “He’s putting commercial uses back into them. We can’t make every building a museum.” Sarraf, as affable and gregarious as the King of Kensington neighbourhood patriarch portrayed by actor Al Waxman on Canadian television for five years, loves New West’s old buildings. Three years ago he didn’t even know how to get to the city. please see ‘It’S A SNOWbALL effect’, A4

Uptown Live is unplugging its partnership with the Hyack Festival Association. But Bart Slotman, the vice president of Uptown Property Group (UPG), the major commercial sponsor of the twoyear-old live music event that showcases local independent and up-and-coming bands, is determined to keep it going. Slotman said the ongoing squabble between some members of Hyack’s board of directors and its executive director, Douglas Smith—who was fired, reinstated and has now left again and is pursuing legal action for wrongful dismissal—made it impossible to move forward with planning for next year’s event. “I have no choice but to react,” said Slotman, who advised Hyack of his decision in a letter earlier this week. “We’re going to look for a Plan B.” That plan will include writing a business proposal for an independently organized music festival and possibly hiring an event planner to put it together. please see hyAck, A3

Doctors speak out against coal terminal Concerns about significant health impacts cited Mario Bartel

photo@newwestnewsleader.com

A group of doctors is speaking out against a proposal to ship thermal coal mined in Montana and Wyoming through B.C. ports to markets in Asia. The Canadian Association for Physicians for the Environment says the shipping of that coal by rail through B.C. communities, then transferred to barges at Fraser Surrey Docks for transport to Texada Island where it will be loaded onto ocean-going ships “may bring serious health effects from diesel particulate matter and coal dust.” Those health effects could include an increased risk of cancer, chronic bronchitis, emphysema as well as more severe and frequent asthma attacks in children, said the group’s executive director Gideon Forman, in an open letter. “Our doctors’ organization strongly opposes these coal shipments,” he added. Plans announced last week by Fraser Surrey Docks (FSD) to minimize the chances for coal dust to blow around,

including the elimination of coal stockpiles awaiting shipment and the addition of topping and binding agents to the coal to suppress dust as its moved by rail or transferred to the barges haven’t eased critics’ concerns about the proposal. “Finally… Canadian doctors are ready to call a spade a spade and speak out,” said Paula Williams, the co-founder of Communities and Coal, a group opposed to the construction of the coal transfer facility. Last week, New Westminster city council directed staff to gather more information about FSD’s additional proposals to see if they addressed residents’ concerns about coal dust from the facility, which will be located about 2,000 metres across the Fraser River from the city’s waterfront. FSD has also been tasked by Port Metro Vancouver to submit an environmental assessment of the transfer facility. That assessment, to be conducted by consulting firm SNC-Lavalin, is expected to be completed by the end of September. Port Metro Vancouver said it will give local governments, health authorities and First Nations groups a chance to comment on the assessment’s findings.

MARIO BARTEL/NEWSLEADER FILE

Fraser Surrey Docks is hoping to open a coal facility that could transfer four million tonnes of coal annually to barges. That amount could ramp up to eight million tonnes over time.

to the event’s website were still featured on Hyack’s website. Slotman said his company owns “all the intellectual property associated with the Uptown Live and Uptown Unplugged events. We own the websites and have developed and paid for all graphic design and materials.” Palmer said Uptown’s decision is as much about business as it is about Hyack’s own internal politics. “Uptown do it as a commercial entity, we do things not as a commercial entity,” said Palmer. “Hyack has a stellar reputation in the community for well over 40 years. We’ve been doing things for

the betterment of the community and we’ve accomplished our tasks quite proficiently.” Slotman said that commercial component is vital to securing the resources needed to stage exciting events that engage the community. “If you want to cut reliance on public funding, you’ve got to get companies to buy in,” said Slotman. “You’ve got to provide a roster of events that the corporate community sees a benefit in participating in.” Slotman said last year’s event cost $70,000 to produce and attracted 25-30,000 people who listened to bands like Good for

Grapes and The Boom Booms on three stages scattered throughout Uptown. Other components included a bicycle skills show and a family fun zone where the City of New West was able to show off some of its equipment like fire and recycling trucks in interactive displays. Palmer said he’s hopeful Hyack will be able to maintain a presence in the city’s Uptown, with or without the help of Slotman’s company. “For years Hyack has put on an Uptown street fair,” said Palmer. “We changed the name to refresh the event.”

That changed following a conversation with city administrator Lisa Spitale as he shopped around for opportunities after scaling back his chain of kitchenware shops. “She was so enthusiastic and excited,� recalled Sarraf. “I thought ‘Oh my god!’� As a businessman Sarraf saw an opportunity to get into the city as it was on the rise. Commercial properties could be had for less money than other areas of the Lower Mainland but still benefitted from ready access to the entire region. They just needed a little care and attention. “If the building makes sense, I can fix them up,� said Sarraf. In fact, he does most of the work himself, his tools, brushes, buckets

to solve the issues we have.” Palmer said the dispute comes down to a difference in philosophies. “We have two sides, one wants to change everything and one that doesn’t want to make dramatic changes,” he said. “We need to make some changes, but also respect history and the past.” Since joining Hyack, Smith initiated a number of changes to the program of festivals and events the association organizes, including the introduction of Uptown Live, a music festival centered around Sixth Avenue and Sixth Street. He also shortened the annual Hyack International Parade that concludes the week-long Hyack Festival in May and canceled the Easter antique car parade. Palmer conceded some of those changes were necessary. “Hyack has been doing the same thing for a long time and sometimes an organization gets a little comfortable in what they’re doing,” said Palmer. “You do need fresh ideas and changes, especially when you’re in the entertainment business.” —With files from Chris Bryan

The Hyack Festival Association is looking for a new executive director. Douglas Smith, who held the job for almost two years before he was dismissed by an executive committee of Hyack’s board of directors on July 31, said Tuesday he’s no longer working for Hyack as of last Thursday. Smith had disputed his dismissal as he and some members of the board contested the committee’s authority to fire him. In August, Smith was reinstated as Hyack ironed out its internal politics. At the time Smith said he’d give the board a month to sort things out. But as his selfimposed deadline passed and those concerns “hadn’t been addressed whatsoever,” Smith pulled the plug. “I wish it hadn’t come to this,” said Smith, who’s started a wrongful dismissal action against Hyack. The association has yet to respond, he said. Gavin Palmer, the president of Hyack, said the board of directors is “working internally

Police issue warning New Westminster police are advising people to be extra cautious, especially at night, after a woman was assaulted by a male attacker early Sunday. Police say a 48-year-old woman was walking in the 200-block of Queens Avenue at around 2 a.m. Sunday when a male suspect emerged from some bushes. The man told the woman to come to him in an aggressive manner, then grabbed her and threw her to the ground. The woman screamed and the suspect fled on foot. Police who responded to the call were unable to find the suspect, who is described as Caucasian, 25-40 years old, 5’11”-6’1” in height, with a lean, muscular build. He was clean shaven, wore a tight black T-shirt with white and red writing, blue jeans with a belt and a black ball cap. Anyone with further information about the attack is asked to contact Detective-Const. Michelle White at 604-529-2536 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

OPINION NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

PUBLISHED & PRINTED BY BLACK PRESS LTD. at 7438 Fraser Park Drive, Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9

ADRIAN RAESIDE:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Four over three The Union of BC Municipalities has proposed extending terms of office for mayors and city councillors from three years to four. Anyone who has regularly watched municipal politicians in action or has served on such a board knows the avalanche of information the newest members must absorb. On top of learning the background of ongoing issues, rookies must try to memorize the process and learn how best to work within those confines. It takes one to two years for an elected official to reasonably understand all that’s involved in the job. This only leaves about a year of a three-year term to best represent the people who put them into office. Extending a term by another year will give residents a better bang for their tax buck, reduce election costs and council turnover, and put municipalities in sync with provincial elections. This timing would aid in limiting the costs some municipalities have had to accrue once a current mayor or councillor wins a provincial election, which, obviously, triggers costly byelections. The proposal passed at the UBCM with a 60 per cent approval rate. One rural delegate stated the idea came from “professional politicians” in the Lower Mainland, where pay is higher. While that may be true, it doesn’t change the fact that this is an idea whose time has come. If such a plan is enacted, B.C. would fall in step with all the other provinces. The only exceptions are the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. Overall, we would be better served by having longer terms, both in terms of effectiveness of politicians and money saved by having fewer elections. —Tri-City News/Black Press

Hyack serving a chummy club Hyack Festival Association is not operating in the best interest of the city and its residents. This week, Douglas Smith left his job as executive director, for the second time in as many months, because Hyack failed to sort out its internal issues. Those being the fact that the president and two other executives on the board who hounded Smith out of a job needed to quit. But they’re fighting it. And the question is, for what purpose? Hyack hasn’t operated well for many years. Ask any major organization in New West, and most folks in City Hall too, and they’ll tell you Hyack is a misfit. It’s a chummy old-boys club, in need of a complete overhaul. If Hyack had any allies a few months ago, it’s almost alone now. The few people who supported Smith’s dismissal did nothing more than shoot the ailing Hyack horse just as it might finally pull itself out of the mud. Why did they fire Smith? A big part of it comes down to the fact that Smith questioned

Chris Bryan the exclusivity tied to the Hyack brand, an elitism enjoyed by a select group of people. When Hyack got its start over 40 years ago, it was no doubt a well-run, effective organization. Each year since, it has had a president who has gone on to become a past-president, an honorary role that never expires. Many of these folks come out to parades and events here in New West and many still travel to the events in Washington state and get wined and dined as VIPs and sport their red jackets. Over the years this group has grown. They have no defined role, but they exert enormous influence on the organization. And when Smith questioned the wisdom of spending taxpayer dollars to send the Hyack float to small-town U.S. so this exclusive

club could continue schmoozing as “representatives” of New Westminster, the knives came out. Bye bye Douglas. Shouldn’t we be asking ourselves what Hyack is for? Smith said Hyack’s job should be to focus its energy on topnotch, inclusive festival offerings that not only thrill New West residents, but draw people from neighbouring cities. Not Leavenworth. We’re talking Burnaby, Coquitlam. A classic example of the pastpresident influence on Hyack was an email that found its way into my inbox this week. In the recent turmoil, the Hyack board of directors had voted to suspend the rest of the year’s U.S. visits. The email from a recent pastpresident asks people to make donations so that Hyack can send the float to Leavenworth and Issaquah to “fulfill our commitment to Northwest Festival Hosting.” Who’s in charge? At Hyack, the tail is wagging the dog. And frankly, it’s reached a point where the organization will

cease to exist if saner heads don’t prevail. Past presidents shouldn’t be calling the shots. Even board members need to back off. In a properly run, staffed non profit, the executive director runs the show, and reports to the board. Ask people in the know what they think about Hyack and they refer to its old-boys-club nature. Its tired event lineup. The lack of professionalism (see: tail/dog). Smith came to Hyack and said let’s make this a professional event organization. Let’s define our roles. Let’s open the books to the city, our primary funder. Let’s redefine what we are. Recently, current president Gavin Palmer raised concerns about respecting history and the past as Hyack moves forward. That’s a red herring. There will always be May Day, there will always be the Anvil Battery Salute. But there may not always be chummy, red-jacket fun in Astoria. And that’s a day I look forward to.

Why take the coal the U.S. rejects? Re: Coal integral to B.C. economy (Letters, NewsLeader, Sept. 20) I’d like to point out some inconvenient truths that Allan Fryer of the Coal Alliance would rather not discuss. First of all, this is American thermal coal that is being proposed for the Fraser Surrey Dock project. Coal that Americans themselves have rejected and won’t allow within their city limits. Secondly, SNC Lavalin is hardly an independent third party. It has had a long-term relationship with the coal industry and has recently been described as corrupt by the World Bank. A new development appeared this week in the Vancouver Sun. Information obtained through Freedom of Information requests reveal the Coal Alliance and Port Metro Vancouver—which is supposed to be a neutral federal authority—are acting in collusion to thwart citizens’ groups who are challenging the legitimacy of this poorly conceived plan. These are desperate times for the thermal coal industry and it is clear they and the PMV will stoop to any level in order to find a market for a commodity that is responsible for so much

of our global environmental problems. In the words of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the thermal coal industry is a dead man walking. It is imperative we stop it from walking into our community and locking us into a future that will only exacerbate the problems future generations will face. Andrew Murray New Westminster

PROTECTING DOMAIN FROM HYACK TURMOIL Re: Who is master of the festivals domain? (Letters, NewsLeader, Sept. 20) It has been interesting to read the ongoing barrage of letters-to-the-editor from the James Crosty/Paul Thompson/ Ted Eddy P.R. machine, most of them full of misinformation, and none of them disclosing the fact that Mr. Thompson’s public relations firm was engaged by the four “rogue” Hyack board members. Perhaps some disclosure would be in order, so that the readers of this newspaper can put Mr. Thompson’s spindoctoring into context. As for my own interest in Hyack, I am primarily concerned about the continuity of Uptown Live, which

my company sponsors and co-presents. This live music event was started two years ago by the former executive director Douglas Smith, who was recently dismissed by this same small group of board members that operated outside the authority of the full Hyack board. I am not interested in seeing Uptown Live become a casualty of the ongoing Hyack saga. Uptown Live is a prime example of the modern, inclusive and New Westfocussed vision for Hyack that Mr. Smith pursued, and which Hyack should continue to pursue, but which was abruptly abandoned when the “rogue four,” with the backing of a select few past presidents, decided it was better to get rid of Mr. Smith so that the organization could turn back the clock and continue to focus on their out-of-town travels at taxpayers’ expense. As for the web domain names festivalsnewwest.ca and dot com, yes I personally registered these domains. My sole objective in doing so was to protect these domains from being used in the power struggle that is ongoing at Hyack. Please see SLOTMAN, A8

Slotman happy to pass along festival domain names ⫸

WHO IS REAL P.R. MACHINE?

It is interesting to note that the Hyack board voted in January 2013 to rebrand the organization to Festivals New West, but this rebranding initiative was hijacked by the same individuals that fired Mr. Smith, and thus was never implemented. Let me make clear that I have no interest in owning these domains long term, and will gladly give these domains (at no cost, Mr. Thompson) to the next organization that will take on the mandate of organizing first-rate events in New Westminster, for New Westminster. Bart Slotman, New Westminster

Re: Domains registered to protect them from Hyack turmoil (letters, www. newwestnewsleader.com) There’s an old adage: “... if you shout loud enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” This seems to be behind Bart Slotman’s endeavours to further his employer’s interests and those of his friends and employees within the Hyack organization, which I assume he would categorize as

“non-rogue.” Such a pejorative, which he uses in place of their proper titles—Hyack executive members—seems unseemly as the four definitions I find of “rogue” are “vagrant,” “tramp,” “scoundrel” and “scamp.” Pray tell, Mr. Slotman which of these adjectives applies to which of the four Hyack executives? First, by way of disclosure, I have been on the boards of many not-forprofit institutions, two of which had to dismiss their “chief civil servant.” I am still bound by confidentiality agreements as to these dismissals and with Velcro lips, unlike some members of the Hyack board, take the confidentiality of in-camera proceedings seriously. The second disclosure is that I have friends on the Hyack board on both sides of these issues. Having said that, I am writing here to protect my name. First, I am not now, nor have I ever been part of a P.R. machine in Hyackgate matters and it came as a surprise that I had been accused of being part of a “machine”—especially considering the editor of the newspaper controls what is printed

and what is not. The only machine that seems to be active is the one in which NewsLeader editor Chris Bryan is a major cog, having freely expressed his editorial views on Hyack branding and related issues and his unbridled support for particular proponents. If there is a powerful P.R. machine it consists of Bryan, Slotman and Smith. As to misinformation, perhaps Mr. Slotman can provide a list of “misinformations” attributable to me. In closing, I spent my own money when I went with Hyack and the Westies to the Tacoma Salute to Military Service parade and neither sought nor would I accept any recompense for my doing something for my domain—which at that time was New Westminster. It was a positive “good news” story which the NewsLeader chose not to cover, opting instead for the titillating imbroglio salaciously fueled by loose lips on the Hyack board.

MLAs work on financial disclosure Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – MLAs’ constituency assistants from across B.C. crowded into the idle B.C. legislative chamber Wednesday to get up to speed on new financial reporting requirements for their office expenses. Provincial politicians have been working to open up their expense reporting since a 2012 report by former Auditor General John Doyle exposed “pervasive deficiencies” in that and other areas of the legislature’s $70 million operating budget. The first steps after that report were to begin disclosing MLA expense totals on a quarterly basis, and to begin holding meetings of the long-secret Legislative Assembly Management Committee in public. That committee met Tuesday and agreed to extend the deadline to begin detailed expense disclosure from constituency offices from Jan. 1 to April 1. In addition to base pay of more than $101,000 a year and an expense account for travel and accommodation, MLAs

receive a constituency allowance of $119,000 a year, mainly for staff and office space. Juan de Fuca MLA John Horgan told the committee he is “absolutely in favour” of disclosing detailed information, but more time is needed, especially with 32 new MLAs elected in May. That means new constituency staff learning accounting procedures on the job, while also learning to handle day-today concerns of constituents, many of whom are “in distress,” he said. The committee supported Horgan’s motion to make the first detailed report public April 1, covering the period from Jan. 1 to the end of the provincial fiscal year. MLAs are also preparing to begin detailed disclosure of their personal travel and other expenses. During discussion of the legislature’s total budget, clerk Craig James told the committee there would be substantial savings this year because the scheduled fall session was cancelled. The cost for extra staff and services for one sitting day is about $30,000.

Eighty volunteers come to clean shoreline Last Sunday morning, 80 people participated in the 2013 South Dyke Road Riverfront Cleanup in New Westminster, launching the start of RiverFest, an art and environmental festival inspired by the Fraser River. “When I saw the rain in the morning, my heart sank,” said cleanup coordinator and New Westminster Environmental Partners member Karla Olson. “But

$ you didn’t see that disappointment on the faces of the 80 volunteers who showed up with rain gear and gloves ready to work.” Volunteers included citizens from Burnaby, Coquitlam, Langley, New Westminster, Port Moody, Richmond, Surrey, and Vancouver, as well as two groups from New Westminster—RBC Dominion Securities Inc. and Douglas College.

removed an oil drum, two TVs, a toilet, a small mattress, a tire, a garden pot, gardening tools, more than 10 plastic buckets, large blocks of Styrofoam, plastic and glass bottles, cans, building materials, plastics from food containers, cigarette butts, plastic bags and food wrappers—and a pair of hip waders. “It was really fantastic to see some new faces as well as volunteers who have taken part in previous cleanups.” said Olson. Of particular concern for this area is the dumping of yard waste that is occurring, Olson said. “Nearby residents may see it only as organic material, but what they don’t realize is that they are introducing nonnative species into the habitat and adding nutrients that create an imbalance to this ecosystem.” Participants pulled bamboo, English ivy, holly, Lamium, and morning glory. Blackberry, another invasive plant, was also removed as much as possible. “What also happens is that in addition to yard waste, whether on purpose or accidentally, other things get dumped,” said Olson. On Saturday some of the garbage will be on display at the New Westminster Environmental Partners table at RiverFest. “Visitors to the NWEP table can learn how to make their own kitchen organic bin liners from their local newspapers like the New Westminster NewsLeader—after they have read it, of course,” said Olson, “and find out more about other NWEP activities, such as the upcoming New West Doc Fest in October.”

He said B.C. cities need a different way to ticket traffic violators without using costly and highly trained police officers. Comox Mayor Paul Ives said it was “wishful thinking” to believe the province would pay for sign change costs and said the shift to a 40 km/h default would confuse drivers.

B.C. communities won’t push to lower the default speed limit to 40 kilometres per hour on residential streets. Victoria councillors argued that pedestrian safety is paramount, but delegates at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention defeated their motion Friday.

SOLO District soars above Burnaby with Altus By Kerry Vital

Appia Developments is reinforcing its reputation for amazing homes with Altus, the second phase in its SOLO District neighbourhood. Altus will be the tallest building in Burnaby at the equivalent of 55 storeys tall, with office space on the first 14 floors and residential from 200 feet up. “The views start from the bottom (residential) floor,” says Appia Sales and Marketing Manager Lisa Murrell.

With condominium homes ranging from approximately 516 to about 1,700 square feet in a variety of floorplans, it won’t be hard to find your perfect home. Something that sets Altus apart are the choices it offers for three-bedroom units, which is something buyers have been asking for and Appia is happy to be able to provide in the newest phase of SOLO District. Part of the appeal is the huge amenity space that Appia is calling Club 55 with a barbecue area, full kitchen, media area and billiards and ping-pong tables and generous outdoor deck

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

space for residents of Altus, to be located on the top floor of the tower. The office tower will include a gym that residents have access to as well, and a multi-sport court on the third floor. SOLO District will eventually be comprised of four residential towers and over 1,400 homes. The community will also include Burnaby’s first Whole Foods, commercial opportunities, office space and tons of green space. “There are several other exciting anchor tenants to be announced,” says Murrell. “This is a very, very cool community.” Walkability was one of the more important aspects, Murrell says. “There’s everything you could possibly need here,” she notes. “It’s been really well-received by the community.” SOLO District is perfectly situated for transit, shopping, education and leisure activities. The Brentwood Skytrain station is just steps away, along with Brentwood Town Centre. Golf courses, parks and fitness facilities are also nearby. Homes at SOLO District start at $293,900.

North Burnaby is a vibrant place full of things to do, from rowing on Burnaby Lake, above, to shopping at Brentwood Town Centre, right. If it’s higher education you’re after, Simon Fraser University, above right, has been rated as one of the top universities in Canada.

North Burnaby a thriving neighbourhood By Kerry Vital

North Burnaby is a rapidly growing region, with plenty of opportunities for shopping, dining, education and recreation, from golf courses to rowing to swimming. The area is an exciting place to live and is becoming a major urban centre in its own right. Never boring and always busy, North Burnaby is becoming the place to be. North Burnaby, also known as the Brentwood area, is about 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver via SkyTrain, and about 30 minutes from the Vancouver International

Airport. This contributes to the popularity of the neighbourhood with young professionals; about 39 per cent of the population in the area is between the ages of 20 and 44. Among the notable developers who are building in North Burnaby are Appia Developments, Ledingham McAllister, Bosa Development and Embassy Developments. It is hard to be bored in North Burnaby, with its selection of parks, art galleries, museums and theatres. If it’s a bit of culture you’re looking for, you can start up on Burnaby Mountain at the Simon Fraser University Art Gallery. It’s open to the public free of charge and the displays change every few months. Simon Fraser also houses the Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, which showcases artifacts from around the world. There are several parks in Burnaby, so outdoor activity is never far away. Burnaby Lake Regional Nature Park surrounds the lake. The park includes a dog off-leash area, the Burnaby Sports Complex,

the Burnaby Equestrian Centre and several walking and cycling trails. However, its biggest draw is the lake itself, which has a rowing course for canoeing, kayaking and rowing training. Confederation Park is also an activity hub, with walking trails, a skate park, a lacrosse box, a running track, a community centre, several picnic sites and playgrounds, baseball diamonds and other playing fields. It’s also home to the McGill branch of the Burnaby Public Library and the Eileen Dailly Leisure Pool and Fitness Centre. North Burnaby is also full of opportunities for all levels of education. The largest institution is Simon Fraser University, just a few minutes from the centre of North Burnaby on Burnaby Mountain. The British Columbia Institute of Technology also has its main campus in Burnaby. North Burnaby is a well-connected city, with several options for public transportation, walking or cycling if you feel like leaving your

car behind. Because it’s nearly the centre of the Metro Vancouver area, it is easy to get on your way, whatever way you choose. Food is a necessity of life, and it’s highly likely that shopping is as well. Luckily, North Burnaby has many options for both. Your first stop for some retail therapy is Brentwood Town Centre, located right in the centre of North Burnaby and well-served by transit, including its own SkyTrain station. With department stores and smaller shops all in one place, you’ll be able to do much of your shopping in one spot. North Burnaby is a chef ’s dream, with stores such as Bosa Foods, famous for amazing Italian imports, and Cioffi’s Meat Market and Deli, which offers an array of fresh cheeses, dried pastas, olive oils, premium meats and homemade sausages, among other products. Grocery stores such as Safeway and Save-On Foods are also in the area. If you’re looking for a night out, there are many options for casual or fine dining as well.
