They’re a little late this season, but the salmon are returning to Burnaby’s creeks. And while local streamkeepers aren’t breaking out the fishing poles just yet, they’re encouraged the years of work they’ve been doing to create welcoming habitats for spawning coho and chum is making some headway. Byrne Creek streamkeepers counted more than 20 coho salmon heading upstream over the Remembrance Day weekend. “This is the best year for coho in ages,” said Paul Cipywnyk. But the numbers for returning chum aren’t so great. So far only three have caught the eye of streamkeepers monitoring the creek just before it passes into a culvert beneath Southridge Drive. But one of those showed signs it may have spawned before it died. Streamkeepers remove dead salmon from the creek to give them a quick assessment of their internal organs for signs of disease and to check whether females are carrying eggs or have dispatched them.

“Filipinos are very good at taking care of their own … The family net runs quite wide there.” It’s those family ties that are assisting the relatives of South Burnaby resident Elizabeth Icarangal. Her husband Lawrence’s first cousin, Bonifacio Icarangal, lives in the city of Ormoc with his wife, Lolita, and their two adult children, one of whom is autistic. “On the day of the typhoon they were lambasted with strong wind and rain, so much rain that the roof of their house flew away,” said Elizabeth, 58. “And because of so much wind, the glass windows all broke down and hit the cousin of my husband on the face.” After Bonifacio’s facial wounds from the glass splinters started to become infected, and they’d gone three days without food, power or cellphone signals, Lolita travelled by boat to the island of Cebu a few hours away where she was able to contact relatives on Facebook asking for help, Elizabeth said. Lolita is still in Cebu awaiting remittances from family through banks and Western Union so she can buy food and medicine to take back home. Like Alex, Elizabeth is watching Facebook, which is where she managed to chat with Lolita the other night. “Most Filipinos open Facebook every day,” she said. As for Bonifacio and their children, “I bet they cannot leave their house because I’ve been seeing news that a lot of looting and stealing is happening,” she said. “So if you leave your house people might ransack your house. So I still believe they are in their house despite the roof is gone.” Others were not so lucky, said Elizabeth, who added a distant relative died in the typhoon. The typhoon disaster comes only about a month after a major earthquake hit another island, Bohol, in the same region of the Philippines. “We ask the lord, ‘enough Lord, enough.’ We pray hard,” she said. As for Alex, he’s carrying on with his day-today life but “holding my breath and thinking that things will be OK.”

A female chum retrieved on Wednesday had only half the number of expected eggs still in her belly and her dorsal fins were worn down from digging a nest in the creek’s gravel bottom. After they’re examined, the carcasses are cut in half and returned to the water, a sight that sometimes distresses passersby, said Cipywnyk. “Sometimes people are freaked out, they’re wondering who’s massacring the fish,” said Cipywnyk, who explained the severed carcasses ensure the fish aren’t counted again and add nutrients back into the water. Up at the Cariboo fish ladder, Elmer Rudolph of the Sapperton Fish and Game Club said the numbers of chum making their way from the Brunette River to Stoney Creek are up, while coho are down. “We’ve seen half the coho that we’re expecting,” said Rudolph, who checks the trap box at the fish ladder every day. “The coho are still fragile.” But, he said, their numbers could still increase if a big rainstorm hits. “Coho will come up when it rains,” said Rudolph. “Fish come up as river levels go up.
Joan Carne and Pina Viola of the Byrne Creek Streamkeepers examine a female chum salmon to see if had spawned before it died.
That’s what we’re waiting for now.” Rudolph said the fish he’s seeing are also robust. “Eight-pound fish are now routine in the Brunette, they’re fat,” said Rudolph. “That’s part of it too, it’s not just the numbers.” Cipywnyk said his group also keeps an eye out for signs the fish are distressed by contaminants in their environment. For instance salmon bumping headlong into walls could be caused by heavy metals entering their system from road runoff flowing into storm drains. “Metals affect their ability to
navigate,” said Cipywnyk who’s observed such behaviour in a few fish so far this fall. That’s a sign that the heavily urbanized environment through which Byrne Creek courses is still exerting pressure. In fact, said Rudolph, considering the challenges salmon face during their lifespan, including changing ocean temperatures that can attract predators seeking fertile new feeding grounds to pollution in the Fraser River, it’s a miracle the fish come as far as they do. “The more you work with fish, the more you realize it’s not so much a science as it’s a black art,” he said.

Future looking bright for North Burnaby legion Wanda Chow
For the first time in many decades in North Burnaby, this year’s Remembrance Day didn’t end at the legion hall on Hastings Street. For generations, after the ceremony at the Confederation Park cenotaph, the parade of members from Royal Canadian
Legion Branch No. 148 would march back to the hall for drinks. “It used to last well into the evening whereas yesterday it was over by four o’clock,” said the branch’s president, Dave Taylor, on Tuesday. This year, Burnaby city hall donated space at Confederation seniors centre for the post-
ceremony function as the branch closed its 77-year-old hall at the end of 2012 when it laid off its four staff. “At least we had a place,” said a pragmatic Taylor, 65. “It was different.” But while the hall at 4356 Hastings St. is likely only weeks away from being demolished,

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
NDP review holds hope The ins and outs of the BC NDP’s 2013 provincial election defeat would bore all but the most hardcore supporter. But there is one good reason to at least acknowledge that the exercise in self-flagellation had to be done, even if you’re not inclined to actually read the party’s 20-page election review released last Friday. The reason is this: There is no other game in town. Sorry, Conservatives and Greens, the New Democrats have the history, the base and the infrastructure so until something better comes along, they are the province’s best chance at keeping the BC Liberals honest. Right now, the next election isn’t a big concern and the NDP can lick their wounds all they want. Premier Christy Clark is still in the honeymoon phase of her term. True, she hasn’t been tested much in the legislature but we know what to expect when she finally walks through the door. She’ll defend to the teeth her government’s Core Review of Everything, the budget, the throne speech and anything else that’s thrown her way. But one day, even Clark’s government will seem dated. A party too long in power rarely escapes folly, arrogance and scandal (and you can be excused for thinking the BC Liberals had reached that stage before the May election). When that day comes, as it will, B.C. will need a thick-skinned leader, sharp of retort and without stain to be in fighting mode. The NDP review holds out some hope that this will be the case. Is the party’s review too much “whine” and not enough cheese. Yes, it lacks punch and has a sour smell. But if it puts teeth back in the tiger keeping a hungry eye on our leaders, that will be a good thing. —TriCity News/Black Press

Gas theft a serious problem An incident on Sunday involving a van full of purloined gasoline should be of great concern to fire and police departments, and citizens in general. In this case, a van hit a pickup truck at Scott Road and 104 Avenue, headed off and burst into flames a couple of blocks away, at 122 Street and 104 Avenue. The incident is the first of its type for Surrey RCMP, but it is not the first such incident. Two other similar crashes and explosions took place in Vancouver and Coquitlam in the past two months. As most people know, gasoline is a highly flammable and explosive substance. Just a few litres can create a fireball, so a van filled with large tanks of gasoline, which has been stolen and is being offered for resale, is not dissimilar to the vehicles used in suicide bombings in other regions of the world. Gasoline theft has been a problem for years, but mainly on a smaller scale.
Frank Bucholtz Apparently these thieves are using stolen credit cards to buy large quantities of gasoline, fill tanks hidden in vans, and then sell it to people at a discount from the pump price. Those eager to get a bargain, without thinking of the consequences of letting these people do business this way, are quick to buy. High gas prices cause people to do a lot of strange things. Many of the initial cross-border trips taken by residents in this area come about to save money on gasoline, as the price is substantially lower in the U.S. The main factor in the price differential is taxes levied on this side of the border, with the 17-cent TransLink tax and the
7438 Fraser Park Dr., Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9 firstname.lastname@example.org burnabynewsleader.com | newwestnewsleader.com
provincial carbon tax being the two biggest contributors to the higher prices. I’ve often wondered why people would drive or sit in line for several hours just to get lower-priced gas, but many people time their trips so that they cross when lineups are minimal. Others make good use of their Nexus cards, which are definitely an added incentive for crossborder shopping. But while cross-border shopping is an obvious choice for many when it comes to getting lower-priced gasoline, buying it on the black market from a van driver seems highly risky and downright dangerous. Who’s to say that there won’t be a spill or fire when the van driver is helping a local to fill up? Gas stations have to follow a lot of safety rules for very good reasons, and one of the most obvious safety measures they can implement is the ability to shut off the supply of gasoline if a fire or spill does occur. If gasoline theft is this
prominent, and it seems that it is, people need to take precautions when they have tanks of gasoline or diesel fuel at their businesses. These are obviously targets for these type of thieves. In addition, people with larger vehicles that have larger fuel tanks need to ensure that it is very difficult to steal gas from parked vehicles. While a locking gas cap is an obvious precaution, it isn’t always enough for sophisticated thieves, who have been known to drill into gas tanks (which also is a very hazardous behaviour) to steal fuel. In the meantime, people who have suspicions about vans which appear to be delivering gasoline on the street or in alleys should let police know right away. They may be preventing a much worse explosion from taking place.

Trees can spoil the view Re: Trees get a big hug from City Hall (NewsLeader, Nov. 8) Apparently, Burnaby city council has approved amendments to the tree bylaw. The changes will include increased prohibitions, with related fines, outlining which tree a home owner can and cannot cut on his property. The existing tree bylaw was already intrusive enough to people’s property rights. We don’t need to turn this whole thing into a dictatorship. I love trees. They play a wonderful role in our landscape, but more important, as we all know, they are a vital element of our universe. But neither the city nor anybody else should have the power to stop anyone from cutting a tree on their property if they choose to do so. In fact, trees that can potentially grow beyond 30 feet in height should not be permitted to be planted within the city. From my house, I have a
spectacular view of Cypress, Grouse and Seymour mountains. It saddens and outrages me to think that in the near future, because of trees getting taller and taller I will lose that view, replaced by a blanket of trees. I have already witnessed that with another part of my view I used to be able to enjoy. Frank Di Cesare Burnaby
LET’S SEE THE BIG PICTURE Paying close attention to the coverage in the Philippines of the largest storm to ever make landfall, it is clear the mainstream media does not want the public to make the connection between the human causes of global warming and its effect on extreme weather events. Perhaps if the media better informed us of the disastrous consequences of our overuse of fossil fuels, we would be more inclined to change our
behaviours and attitudes. Regardless of whether one acknowledges humanity’s contribution to the problem, it is unacceptable that the richest nations on Earth are not doing more to prepare for the effects here and to help poorer nations prepare for more climate change related disasters like hurricanes and rising sea levels. You have to wonder what it will take for North Americans to take this problem seriously. Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy did little to change our attitudes. Guaranteed, Typhoon Haiyan will do less. With the holidays approaching, let’s not forget the people around the world most affected by climate change. Rick McGowan Burnaby

The hall is open, on a minimal electricity bill, for several hours a day while Taylor and other volunteers try to sell off remaining furniture, medical equipment, ducting,

Say goodbye to pain. Experience the benefits of
What our patients say... Ankle and Foot “Laser treatment for my foot and ankle injury (ligaments & tendons) was a success after 3 years of trying other treatments which failed.” EA (85) Headache & Neck Pain “Due to a whiplash injury, I suffered severe neck pain. I had approximately 18 treatments and no longer suffer neck pain - it is truly a miracle.” Patsy Bernstein (58) Arthritis Both Knees “I have been suffering from knee pain for several years. I tried a number of other treatments to no avail. I am more than pleased with the results of laser light as my pain has reduced significantly.” William Jack (63) Shoulder Pain “I had frozen shoulder that limited my mobility. After 9 treatments of laser therapy my shoulder has gained back almost all mobility. There is no pain or discomfort with the treatments.” J.L. (48) Neck pain for 20 years “I had tried so many other procedures before so I thought I’d give laser light a try as all others had failed. After a few sessions I was surprised from the relief I got. I would highly recommend this procedure as a solution, it really works.” D.D. (69)
Plantar Fasciitis “I have plantar fasciitis and a bone spur on my heel. I have been going for 4 weeks now and am almost all the way healed. The treatments are painless.” J.M. (52) Hip Replacement “After having a hip replacement, I have lived with constant pain for 4 years. After having laser treatment, I feel like a new person.” V.W. (84) Knee Pain “...after just 7 sessions, I feel much better. I can now walk and go up and down stairs without pain at the end of the day.” G.L. (48) Severe Back Pain “After a CT scan of my low back, I was diagnosed with: • Lumbar disc bulges L2 L3 L4 L5 • Pars defect with anterolisthesis • Central canal spinal stenosis • Scoliosis My doctor recommended surgery. Fortunately, I was recommended to try Laser Therapy – what a blessing! After 10 treatments, I am able to walk pain free. What a relief!” M.B. (71) Foot Pain Due to Fracture “...my mobility has returned and the pain has gone!” D.B. (55)
Laser Light Therapy Low Intensity Laser Therapy
Neck Pain for 10 Years “After just 6 treatments the pain was gone and I could turn my neck freely. the difference was so huge, I couldn’t believe it!” M.R. (46) Knee Pain for 30 Years “I feel rejuvenated at 52, cycling regularly and ready to take on more physical challenges. Thanks to this amazing therapy!” Bill (52) Hip Flexor Ligament Torn “I would recommend this to anybody who is tired of wasting time with methods of recovery that don’t work, or you just want to get better faster.” RL (13) Cold Sore “I hadn’t been aware of laser for such an application, but I was delighted to see visible improvement after one treatment, and after the second, it was gone!” C.M. (64) Shoulder & Arm Pain “...the benefit to my shoulder is so surprising that I am continually moving, stretching my arm just to prove to myself that I am not imagining what I am feeling and doing. Moving without pain! That is something to be happy about.” A.B. (58)
Painful Hamstring “With the laser treatment, my hamstrings aren’t tight anymore, I have much more flexibility.” S.B. (29) Inguinal Hernia Post Surgery “I found the treatments alleviated acute pain after a hernia operation. I would recommend the procedure to anyone with pain or scars” GPA (55) Frozen Shoulder Tendonitis “I began a series of treatments on my shoulder and neck which I found to be relaxing and non-invasive. Ultimately I regained, almost completely, mobility in my left shoulder.” A.L. (69) Neck Pain “Even after the first session of cold laser therapy, I felt the difference right away.” M.E. (54) Thigh Pain “I no longer have pain from my hip to the knee. This is such a miracle for me and I highly recommend it. It’s FABULOUS!” C.B. (61) Cold Sore “On the fourth day, I had my 3rd and final 30 minute treatment. The outbreak was finished and my lip felt and looked good as new.” William (52)
HOW IT WORKS
Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) is a highly sophisticated, non-toxic and non-invasive therapy that uses light energy from both superluminous and laser diodes. When placed in contact with the skin, this energy safely penetrates the tissue. At an intracellular level, the light is transformed into biochemical energy. Cells use this energy to repair and regenerate themselves, enhancing the body’s natural healing process.
WHO CAN BENEFIT?
BioFlex Low Intensity Laser Therapy is an effective solution for musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions, dermatological problems and the healing of open wounds. BioFlex therapy can safely increase the rate of recovery and help patients reduce the need for pain medication. BioFlex also has the ability to promote rapid recovery post surgery. The beneficial effects of LILT are cumulative over the course of a series of treatments.

The CTS model is a lighter car, made of high tensile steel. It is stiffer, safer, handles better, and above all, is more efficient.
Cadillac in the rear-view mirror of the European premium brands 2014 Cadillac CTS One auto trend that shows little sign of waning is the move towards more luxury or premium cars by manufacturers and consumers alike. As baby boomers age, they have earned the nicer things in life, and the offspring of baby boomers are getting used to the finer things in life, so more automakers are moving upscale. The Europeans do luxury and performance better than most and the Japanese luxury brands have been putting in their time to becoming a real force. But long before the Japanese, there have always been the American luxury brands, with many firsts in features and technology. Established in 1902, Cadillac is one of the oldest, along with Mercedes-Benz, and continues to be General Motors’ flagship in terms of refinement and technology. Looks The smaller Cadillac ATS was released a year ago and went on to win the North American Car of the Year award. General Motors has taken that platform and elongated it to produce the lightest mid-sized car in its class. It’s a full 173kg lighter than the benchmark BMW 5-Series it competes against, and 34kg lighter than the outgoing car. A lighter car, made of

Verdict The price of the CTS ranges from about $51,000 for the base model to $66,000 for the top premium trim level. The Vsport, high performance model is priced at almost $75,000. The Cadillac CTS is not an inexpensive car, but it offers many features like standard heated and vented leather seats, Bose stereo and push button start even on the base model. Compared to some of the other mid-sized luxury sedans it is less expensive, plus it is a worthy car for any driving enthusiast.

Driving better: because you’re worth it ‘‘
Every time you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, there’s a possibility you can change your life or the lives of others.
B.C. racecar driver Cherie Storms told me she was taking an advanced driver training course to appease her father’s wishes. She’d been putting it off since teenagedom. That said, her father is an accomplished racecar driver and a proficient motorist, so you could argue it was an inevitability. But she had to find the desire in herself first. What followed, even she didn’t think would happen. She recently took home the championship title for the B Spec series in her Mazda2 for the 2013 race season. She grew up in a motorsports household but it wasn’t until she actually got behind the wheel at the driving course that her mindset changed. “I was just overwhelmed with all of the technical aspects that it takes to be a good driver,” she stated. It’s like what my Grade 12 math teacher always said, “Math is not a spectator
sport.” There was even a poster on the cubicle wall to remind us. The same thing goes for driving. Except there’s no poster in the cubicle for that! We need to be an active participant, not a wallflower. Anyone who has taken advanced driving courses will know exactly what Cherie is talking about. It’s not just about knowing how to shift gears on a manual transmission without jerking the car, or parallel parking your sedan without curbing the rims. Driving is so much more. I understand that this mode of transportation is a necessity for many. And it’s something done out of convenience rather than love. Kind of like laundry or grouting the bathroom floor tiles. Then again, for others, it’s a passion. Myself included. Taking a specialized course, whether it’s a track day or a race school isn’t just for wannabe racers. It’s for everyone. And we can all learn if we have an open mind. We read to keep our mind sharp. We walk/run/work out to keep our bodies active. We sleep to keep our bodies functioning. Why should driving be any different? Why shouldn’t we actively engage in making ourselves better drivers?
A little extra driver training for yourself can benefit everyone on the road. Every time you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, there’s a possibility you can
change your life or the lives of others. We might not think too
much about it, but operating a vehicle is a huge responsibility.
Poor driving habits, not shoulder checking, not using your signals, driving in the left lane when you’re not passing, are minor details in the grand scheme of things, but have a large impact. It’s never too late to refresh the basics and then pick up a few new good habits. For example, if you look at any of the top athletes in their sport, they’re training most of the time. They’re trying to perfect their craft, even when they’re at the top of it. I doubt Sebastian Vettel slums around in his down time, even after winning his fourth consecutive Formula 1 world championship. Sure, he gets a break, but he’s constantly training to be faster and stronger. In another interview, I chatted with Izod Indy racecar driver Simona de Silvestro. She told me that there’s really no such thing as an “off-season.” She said she trains all year long. In fact, she trains harder
when she’s not always behind the wheel of a car to prepare for the upcoming races. If the pros do it, we should to. Some of the most fun I’ve had behind the wheel of a car has been at a driving school. Whether it was the threeday racing school at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with the Skip Barber program, or a track day at the Mission Raceway with Morrisport Advanced Driving, or even a track program close to you, it’s a win-win. If we’re all safer drivers then the chances of accidents are minimized and we can keep our vehicles dent-free longer. And avoid going through insurance claims. The few hundred dollars it takes to enrol is of infinite worth in the long run.

Truck tires tread lightly in the snow
Remember that your four-wheel drive vehicle may help you get going quicker than other vehicles but it won’t help you stop any faster.
The temperature is starting to drop, the leaves are clogging up the streets and snow is beginning to fall in parts of B.C. Driving in the winter season brings challenges no matter which part of the province
you call home. My remarks are aimed chiefly at truck owners but the message is common for all: driver and vehicles must be equally prepared. In winter, braking and stopping vehicles of all kinds is perhaps where most of us get into trouble. The tires play a critical role in stopping the vehicle, and so they need even more care and attention than in the other seasons. Most SUVs have a passenger car tire classification with M+S stamped on the sidewall, for Mud and Snow and are considered allseason tires. If it is not, your vehicle must be fitted with tires suitable for any type of climate, even the most severe ones. In winter the pressure
of the tire must also be controlled more frequently. This is because a reduction of the outside temperature causes a contraction of the air inside the tire, accelerating the normal and gradual pressure loss process by a value around 1-2 PSI for each 5° C decrease in temperature. Contrary to popular opinion, a lower inflation pressure than normal does not improve tire traction on snow. It makes them much more prone to damage. Always remember that in any season and with any temperature, insufficient pressure is always the main cause of tire damage. Use brakes carefully. Brake early. Brake correctly. It takes more time and distance to stop in icy con-
As the temperature drops, drivers and vehicles must be ready for the snow. ditions. Watch for slippery bridge decks, even when the rest of the pavement is in good condition. Bridge decks will ice up sooner than the pavement.
Do not use the cruise control in winter conditions. Even roads that appear clear can have sudden slippery spots and the short touch of your brakes to de-
activate the cruise control feature can cause you to lose control of your vehicle. Don’t get overconfident in your 4x4 vehicle. Remember that your four-wheel drive
vehicle may help you get going quicker than other vehicles but it won’t help you stop any faster. Besides, many 4x4 vehicles are heavier than passenger vehicles and actually may take longer to stop. And don’t bank on your 4x4’s traction. Your 4x4 can lose traction as quickly as a two-wheel drive vehicle. If your vehicle is equipped with anti-lock brakes, do not pump them in attempting to stop. The right way is to steer into the skid while applying the brake pedal evenly. Look farther ahead in traffic than you normally do. Actions by cars and trucks will alert you quicker to problems and give you a split second extra time to react safely. ian.harwood @drivewaybc.ca

Merc E-Class is a class of its own ‘‘
Even though owner costs tend to be higher than average, the E-Class made Consumer Reports’ ‘Recommended list.
An all-new 2010-model year E-Class Coupe beat its sedan counterpart into Canadian Mercedes-Benz dealerships, in mid-2009. Style, safety and comfort are fundamental characteristics of an E-Class, which is considered to be one of the safest cars in the world. This generation E-Class came with ten air bags and a new Pre-Safe system that readies all on-board safety systems, when it detects that a collision may be about to happen.
A car to savour on a long road trip, this E-Class came with a new “Intelligent” body structure that’s 30 per cent more rigid than its predecessor, incredibly comfortable seating and a newly developed suspension with shock absorbers that automatically adjust to a driving situation. An optional air suspension was also available with an electronic damping system. The E350 (coupe or sedan) is powered by a 3.5 litre V6 with 268 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The E550 (coupe or sedan) has a 5.5 litre V8 that can generate 382 hp and 391 lb-ft of torque. The sedan also comes in a high-performance AMG 63 edition with a 6.2-litre V8 that makes 518 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. All three engines are mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission and drive goes to the rear wheels of the Coupe and to all four wheels of the Sedan. The rear-drive 3.5L V6 gets best fuel economy at 11.9 L/100/km in the city and 7.6 L/100/km on the highway. The 6.2L V8 is the gas guzzler, with a city/highway
rating of 16.5/10.2 L/100/ km. All three engines also prefer premium fuel. A standard Dynamic Handling package also allows the driver to choose a sporty-set-up at the touch of a button. This changes the continuously variable damping, the speed-sensitive power steering (with variable centering), ESP/ASR (traction control), accelerator response, and speed of automatic gear changes. New active safety innovations included Attention Assist, which is a driver drowsiness monitor, PreSafe, which is preventative occupant protection system, Adaptive High Beam Assist, which automatically dims headlight high beams, and an automatic emergency braking system called Distronic Plus. Attention Assist is a warning system that can sense a drop in driver attention level. It continuously monitors more than 70 different driver performance parameters, such as erratic steering behaviour, and will signal when it’s time for the driver to take a break. Four new E-Class models
The 2010 Mercedes Benz E-Class Coupe features attractive styling inside and out. were added for the 2011 model year: an E350 4MATIC station wagon, E350 BlueTEC diesel sedan, and two convertibles, the E350 cabriolet and E550 cabriolet. At highway cruising speeds you can barely hear the E350 BlueTEC diesel engine, throttle response is fast (for a diesel) and pulling power (398 lb ft of torque from 1600 to 2400 rpm) is phenomenal. Engine upgrades followed in 2012. The E350 4MATIC got a direct-injection 3.5-litre V6. The E550 4MATIC got a 4.6-litre bi-turbo V8 and the E63
AMG got a 5.5-litre bi-turbo V8. All models also receive a revised transmission, electric power steering and LED license plates. Even though owner costs tend to be higher than average, the E-Class made Consumer Reports’ ‘Recommended list of cars to buy and the E350 BlueTEC was singled out for special praise. If style, comfort and safety top your auto “wish list”, and you’ve got the money, consider the remarkable Mercedes-Benz E-Class. bob.mchugh @drivewaybc.ca
Is electric only good for cities?
Jim Knowles and his wife Catherine took the plunge with a Smart Fortwo Electric.
People point and laugh at Jim Knowles when he drives his Smart Fortwo Electric Drive through downtown Campbell River. But he and his wife Catherine have the last laugh when they open up their hydro bill. “I think the last bill was just a few dollars more than the one we got before we bought the car in July so that’s inexpensive driving,” said Knowles. “I work out at the airport and so I travel about 10 kilometres each way every day. I never let the battery go below 20 percent but I still find I can sometimes go four days before I plug it in overnight.” In the summer, Knowles said he can easily get up to the 160 km range on a single charge but knows the Vancouver Island winter will take that down to around 120 as the wipers and heater take their energy toll. “We moved from Ladner threeand-half years ago with our
Knowles said they are looking at investing in a fast charger, now that rebates are available. Smart Diesel. I think people here thought we would buy something a little bigger – this is the truck capital of the Island after all.” But they came back from a carshopping jaunt from Richmond with the little electric car, which set them back around $26,990 less a generous BC government rebate of $5,000.
“We stopped in Qualicum Beach to charge it for a couple of hours and made it back here easily.” The car charges on what is called a level one (basic) charger but with rebates now offered on fast chargers, they are contemplating investing in one. Knowles got in touch with
Driveway to tell of his experiences with the Smart car, following our launch piece on the BMWi3 electric car a few weeks ago. We would like to hear from others, who are driving pure electric vehicles in rural areas. Electric vehicles are frequently dismissed as being good only for urban dwellers. The Knowles are demonstrating they can serve people outside of major cities. Admittedly, they don’t travel far each day but then surely that’s the case for many rural residents. Yes, trucks, larger cars and SUVs will always dominate in parts of the province where harsh winters are commonplace and distances travelled are greater. But cars like the Smart and i3 may have a role to play as a family’s second vehicle in those locations. What do you think? email@example.com

Significant trees removed at BC Housing complex

Resident questions timing so soon before tree bylaw takes effect Wanda Chow
Several significant trees taller than Hydro poles were removed from in front of a South Burnaby apartment complex on Tuesday, prompting a local tree advocate to question the timing of the move. “My first thought was that they were taking them down before the tree bylaw went in [to effect],” said Donna Polos. She was one of the Burnaby residents who successfully petitioned Burnaby council for stronger protections for trees in the city. Such changes to the existing tree bylaw, which would require permits to remove trees of certain sizes, are to go into effect early in the new year once all the formal details are finalized. “There’s 10 of them, they looked very healthy and they were very big trees,” Polos said of the pines, which were 70 to 80 feet tall. “To take down every single one of them? There’s no

trees left.” The apartment block, Doug Drummond Manor, is owned by BC Housing which said in an emailed statement that the tree bylaw didn’t even enter into the decision. The trees simply needed to be removed to allow work to proceed on repairing an issue of water leaking through the plaza deck area into the parkade and some ground floor units, it said. BC Housing is replacing the plaza deck membrane and installing an updated perimeter
drainage system as part of work that will take about eight months and cost about $1 million. “To perform the work a number of trees on the site will be removed and there is a replanting plan filed with the City of Burnaby that will take place after the work is performed,” BC Housing said. Tenants were informed before the trees were removed, said BC Housing, which noted the trees were planted some time after the complex was built.

Three finalists chosen for RenoMe! With FortisBC contest By Kerry Vital
Three British Columbia residents are getting the chance to win $10,000 towards a room makeover with natural gas after being chosen as a finalist in the RenoMe! with FortisBC contest. Over 150 entries were received from all over the province, but the final three were narrowed down to Gayle Curtis of Maple Ridge for her kitchen, Melissa Tolsma of Nanaimo for her outdoor space and Wendy Frose of Chilliwack for her great room. Designer Sarah Gallop of Sarah Gallop Design Inc. (SGDI) has taken on the outdoor space project, while SGDI’s Stephanie Malhas will design the great room, and Susanne Doise of Sensitive Design will handle the kitchen. In the next phase of the contest, the three finalists will receive renderings of their space from their designer, and then readers will vote on which one deserves the makeover the most. The room with the most votes will win $10,000 towards their renovation, while the second and third-place finalists will receive $2,000 each. Doise has consulted with Curtis, and has provided a rendering of how she thinks the kitchen could look once it’s renovated. “The kitchen is in bad shape,” says Doise. “I want to give her a better flow between the work spaces and the rest of the room.” Curtis calls her kitchen disgusting, gross and old, and says she’s tired of burning everything she cooks due to a bad stove, so Doise will be incorporating natural gas in the kitchen with a Viking dual-fuel gas range. “It’s a very simple way to use natural gas,” she says. Gas cooktops have long been popular with professional
chefs for their even cooking, precise temperature control and instant heat. Homeowners have increasingly been choosing them for their new and renovated kitchens alike. One of the concerns with the room is the lack of space. In order to combat this, Doise has suggested a movable butcher block island that can be pushed into the pantry wall to open up the space. She notes that currently, you can’t even open the refrigerator without bumping into the existing counter, and opening the dishwasher blocks you from doing anything else in the kitchen. “I want to bring in more light as well,” she says. “It will look more friendly and inviting.” She also plans to incorporate an area for the homeowners to work and study. “I want to make it multifunctional,” she says. Doise has considered the owner’s tastes as well, and would incorporate her likes and dislikes into the final design. “I want to make her happy,” she says. Malhas is similarly excited about her great room project. “People live in their space for so long that they get used to it and have trouble visualizing changing it,” she says. “I don’t have that emotional connection to it so I can see the potential in the room and suggest ways to fix it.” The current room is the main living area for Frose’s family, and it’s in dire need of an update. “Any time I can get into wood panelling is good,” laughs Malhas. “It will definitely be gone.” One of the biggest issues with the room is the current wood-burning fireplace, which isn’t centred in the room and makes for awkward

more energy-efficient and more convenient for homeowners. You no longer have to worry about power outages, since the fireplace doesn’t run on electricity, and there is no more waiting for your fireplace to heat up, since natural gas is available at the push of a button. There

She also plans to give the The space is currently only usable in the warmer months, so she’s hoping to be able to use it yearround if she wins the contest. Among the ideas Gallop has for the yard is a hot tub with an arbor above it. “That will give them a little bit of coverage and privacy,” she says, adding that the hot tub will be heated by natural gas. Gallop also plans to include an outdoor kitchen with natural gas barbecue and a natural gas firepit. A natural gas hot tub is a great idea for homeowners, with its consistent, fast heat and automatic safety shut-off controls for added peace of mind. Swimming pools can also be heated by natural gas. FortisBC notes that a natural gas barbecue can be extremely convenient for homeowners looking for fuel on demand, Sarah Gallop rendering as you’ll never have to deal Sarah Gallop of Sarah Gallop Design Inc. has envisioned an outdoor space with a natural gas hot tub, natural gas barbecue and with running out of propane natural gas firepit for Melissa Tolsma of Nanaimo. or charcoal. It also allows you to cook with different temperatures at the same time and control the heat more easily. It also burns cleaner than other fuel sources, making it good for the environment as well.

Find it at www. fortisbc.com/energycalculator. FortisBC natural gas customers are also continuing to benefit from some of the lowest prices in a decade, at under $4 per gigajoule.

Gallop’s design features several levels to define the different spaces in the yard. “The space looked disconnected before,” she says. “This gives (Tolsma) different zones in the yard while still being connected.” It also makes the space transition a bit better between the casual entertaining area, the hot tub and the rest of the yard. “It’s a pretty straightforward renovation,” Gallop says. “The homeowner will be very happy with it.” To vote, visit your local Black Press paper’s website and click on the Contests link.
