Douglas College’s student newspaper, The Other Press, issued an apology to the New Westminster Police Department after publishing a fictional ‘humour’ article about the NWPD accidentally distributing illegal drugs as Halloween candy to children. The article entitled ‘New Westminster police under investigation,’ was written by staff writer Aidan Mouellic. It was run on a full page in the Nov. 5 edition with a large photo illustration and a ‘Humour’ label at the top right corner of the page. The fake story said the NWPD was continuing its annual tradition of handing out candy on Halloween from its Columbia Street headquarters, but this year “a few hundred children received grape-flavoured LSD lollipops.” It went on to describe how local schools and hospitals reported dozens of children showing up experiencing the psychedelic effects of the drug. see THE OTHER, A3

Hyack ‘board’ adds three directors

senior management felt its representation of the force was inaccurate and unfair. “Like anyone else, NWPD members do have a sense of humour, however, it does not extend to off-colour jokes about children ingesting illegal drugs. Furthermore, it was felt there was significant possibility the article could be misinterpreted by members of the public as being factual in nature,” said the statement which credited Douglas College and the newspaper with remedying the situation after they were contacted. “The NWPD are appreciative of the timely manner in which this issue was dealt with and consider the matter now closed.”

Although its ability to operate is being questioned and investigated, the Hyack Festival Association board has appointed three new directors. Earlier this month, the board elected Don Swindells, Brenda Adam and David MacGrotty to fill some of the vacancies created when five directors resigned Oct. 22 prior to a special general membership meeting that evening. In the afternoon, following the resignations, Hyack president Gavin Palmer announced the evening meeting had been cancelled. In the meantime four new directors were appointed. (One of the new directors, Ken McIntosh, resigned a few days later because of a conflict of interest for his wife, Coun. Betty McIntosh.) But the dissenting directors said the board did not have the authority to cancel it, and about 25 members held the special meeting anyway. That resulted in Palmer, treasurer Gloria Munro and vice-president Alan Wardle being ousted from the board and the faction declaring the board no longer had enough to form a quorum. Palmer, however, contended the special meeting was illegal and said the new board was within its rights to continue operating Hyack. “We now have a board of loyal, respected and dedicated professionals whose collective mandate is to stabilize and energize the Hyack Festival Association,” said Palmer in a press release. “Having survived an attempted hostile takeover by dissident board members with suspect agendas, we opted for a blended board of persons with significant past experience and those who offer fresh ideas.” Hyack, however, has come under fire from city council, which pulled its annual funding. In addition, council requested Hyack turn over its financial records for the past 12 months to an independent auditor and asked the registrar of the B.C. Society Act to investigate the board and society to determine if proper procedures were followed.

“At the moment Gemma’s family is in limbo—we do not have the full details of how and why she died—we know the basics but that is all. As Gemma’s mother I need to know the full facts on how this happened before I can even try to come to terms with her death. Gemma’s Canadian family and friends need to know also.” Margaret pointed out her daughter’s organs were donated to give life to people in her adopted country and wondered if the case is not being given the attention it deserves because Gemma was not a Canadian citizen. “Here in Western Australia we see drivers charged within a week and it is frustrating to see the length of time that it is taking in Canada.” If there is a court case, Margaret said she intends to return to Canada because she has a need to hear the full circumstances surrounding her daughter’s “unnecessary death.” “Gemma was, and still is, loved and missed by so many people,” she said.

MPs step into the fight to save Thrifty Foods New Westminster MPs Peter Julian and Fin Donnelly have written a joint letter to Canada’s Competition Bureau asking it to explain what it will do to ensure Sapperton residents don’t experience any loss of service because Sobeys is being forced to sell its Thrifty Foods store. The bureau ordered Sobeys to divest itself of 23 stores across Canada, including the Sapperton outlet, after the company purchased Safeway’s Canadian operations for $5.8 billion. The order was made to preserve competition in the markets across Canada, said the bureau. With the deal, Sobeys is acquiring three Safeway stores in New Westminster as well as another nearby located at the Lougheed Town Centre in Burnaby. The Oct. 22 announcement sparked much opposition to Sapperton’s potential loss of its biggest grocery store. Julian and Donnelly said many residents have expressed deep frustration and disappointment about the sale. “The Thrifty Foods

Sapperton location is an important resource for local residents and contributes to the building of a walkable community – something local residents and the City of New Westminster have been working hard to achieve,” wrote the NDP MPs. “Have you considered the service impact and contribution of Thrifty Foods to the community in your analysis? As an employer of over 100 Sapperton residents, Thrifty’s is an important job base and has played a significant role in the community by supporting local endeavors such as seniors programs and neighbourhood cleaning efforts. Were these facts considered prior to your decision? How would they be addressed in any proposed divestiture? Given the fact that Thrifty Foods is alone in its immediate geography and that they are seen as a significant community partner in Sapperton, what factors lead you to the decision to require divestiture of this location?” City council has also sent a letter of concern to the bureau.

Open house on new energy system A proposed low-cost energy system to serve Sapperton will be introduced to the community at an open house next Thursday. The City of New Westminster is exploring the possibility of introducing the system in conjunction with the redevelopment of the Royal Columbian Hospital. Locating the energy centre at RCH or in the Braid industrial area are being considered. The renewable energy options being considered are a system where heat is extracted from Metro Vancouver’s nearby main sewer line, and wood chip combustion that would utilize filters to reduce emissions to very low levels. The latter is being considered only for the Braid site. The open house will be held at Knox Presbyterian Church’s upper hall at 403 E. Columbia St., on Nov. 28 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. More information is available on the city’s website, newwestcity.ca, or by contacting senior planner Mark Allison at 604-527-4653 or mallison@newwestcity.ca.

OPINION

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

NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Unkind cuts

LAST WEEK:

The massive cuts to BC Ferries routes, to take effect in April, would likely be a little bit easier to swallow if the BC Ferries board had done the right thing and cut the exorbitant wages and bonuses given to senior management. As it is, the board instituted a two-year wage freeze and rolled the bonuses into the regular salaries paid to executives. A small portion will be held back, to be earned if performance targets are met. This is such an obvious shell game. These top people will continue to get the same high salaries they get today. BC Ferries CEO Mike Corrigan makes $563,000. His counterpart on the similar-sized Washington state ferry system makes $166,000. BC Ferries is going through a massive exercise to save about $19 million. There is no question there is a need to reduce some services on lightly-travelled routes. Asking seniors aged 65 and over to pay 50 per cent of the passenger fare Mondays through Thursdays is not a major imposition. Most seniors who live in coastal communities have enough disposable income to make the occasional ferry trip, and they will still be getting a substantial discount over every other traveller. But had the BC Ferries board made some substantial cuts to the wages of its top managers, money would be saved without a single sailing being cut. The real challenge that the provincial government faces is rooting out the members of the boards who run its Crown corporations, and in the case of BC Ferries, a private corporation owned 100 per cent by the province. It needs board members ready to challenge the CEOs and top managers they are supposed to be keeping watch on. It needs board members who will look out for taxpayers and consumers. Then the public will be much better served. —Langley Times/Black Press

On deeds, reads and changing needs GOOD DEEDS: Vilma Del Mundo is the office assistant at Shiloh-Sixth Avenue United Church, on Sixth Avenue near 12th Street. Luckily, she didn’t lose any family members back in the Philippines when Typhoon Haiyan struck earlier this month—though her fatherin-law’s farm in the south did sustain some damage. Still, Vilma and some other moms wanted to do what they could to help out, and decided to make cookies to sell as a fundraiser, with a modest goal of $200. And so last Monday they were at the grocery store stocking up on flour, eggs, butter and brown sugar. A couple people in the cashier lineup commented “that’s a lot of baking you’re doing there,” so Vilma and her friends explained their little fundraiser. When the cashier hit the total, about $90, a man in the lineup stepped forward and held up a hand as they were reaching for their wallets. “I’ve got this,” he said. Later, they baked more than 50 dozen cookies—enough to make Vilma’s arms ache from rolling

Chris Bryan dough for chocolate chip and snickerdoodle cookies. Last weekend, they sold cookies outside a school in Coquitlam and had nothing left before the morning was out. In the end, they ended up raising almost $800, not bad for a few moms who wanted to help out a little. “We saw each other this morning when we dropped off our kids and we were all in tears,” Vilma told me on Monday. “It was like, this is so good.” GOOD READS: Another good thing is all the fantastic books on the history of New Westminster. One of my favourites is Jim Wolf’s Royal City: A Photographic History of New Westminster, 1858-1960 (published in 2005) for its elegant layout, fantastic photographs well played and judicious use of intriguing quotations from newspaper articles throughout

the years. But one that I’ll be reading in coming weeks is a new book from Evelyn Benson. A Century in a Small Town: One Family’s Stories is a perfect addition to the ever-growing body of works chronicling Royal City history. From what I’ve read of it so far, it seems a wonderful combination of first-person memoir, family history and civic history. Benson’s father Lewis Sangster served many years on city council and was New West’s mayor from 1949-50, and was known as a great storyteller. It appears the apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree, as Benson’s stories have the mark of a real raconteur. The book is broken into many short stories, and packed with anecdotes. For anyone in your family interested in New West history—particularly those bathroom readers out there���this could be a great stocking stuffer. CHANGING NEEDS: Speaking of stuffed, that’s what a new rental tower eyed for the empty lot next to New Westminster SkyTrain station sounds like. Degelder built the three towers next door and now wants to build this one.

When I put the headline for the story on our website, I had to shake my head. Forty stories? 500 rental units? One building? As one letter aptly put it, sounds like a ghetto in the making. Or a human filing cabinet, as a commenter on our website stated. Don’t get me wrong—even though more than half the housing in this city is rental, there’s room for more— particularly high-quality, new rental as the rest is aging fast. But a building with 500 units that are either one bedroom or smaller is out of whack. One can almost imagine one quarter of the building turning over every couple of months. Luckily, city council told Degelder to go back to the drawing board. As Coun. Jonathan Coté said to me recently, “we’re building a neighbourhood, we’re building a community.” Years ago, when no one wanted to build in New Westminster, city council bent over backwards for developers. Thankfully, times have changed. editor@newwestnewsleader.com

COMMENT

500 small rental units a recipe for a ghetto Re: Company eyes 40-storey tower with 500 rental units (NewsLeader, Nov. 13) Kudos to city councillors Bill Harper, Betty McIntosh, Jaimie McEvoy and Jonathan Coté for their united strong response to the inadequate response by the developer of Plaza 88. I have been away travelling recently and was very surprised to return and see ground preparation begun for the fourth Plaza 88 tower, since I did not remember that the developer had received approval.  Those of us who live on the Quay are enjoying the Plaza 88 shopping and services, but have many concerns about the three, and now potentially the fourth tower. The idea of building a huge and purely rental tower is contrary to the population trends and needs in New West. This city already has the highest percentage of low-income rental in the Lower Mainland. Yet as Coun. Coté pointed out, there is a need for larger, not smaller units. Even the planning department says what is needed is flexibility and not just a building that will sell today. These buildings, once built, are there for a long time. w A huge pure rental building with small suites is a long-term recipe for a ghetto. It is too much to expect that this developer has New West’s best interests at heart. So keep up the pressure, council members. Reg Nordman New Westminster

Small price to pay, to put penSionS on track Since 2010 there has been a growing awareness among provincial, territorial and federal finance ministers that Canadians are facing a pension crisis. Far too many of us are unable to put enough money aside, either in pension plans or savings, and, as a result, face the prospect of a bleak retirement. The good news is that this situation can be corrected by enhancing Canada Pension Plan benefits, the cost of which would be a modest increase in both employer and employee contribution rates. The bad news is that Canadian employers, led by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB), has mounted a strong campaign against the proposal on the grounds that the “fragile” economy can not support a rate increase. Unfortunately that view has prevailed with some politicians, particularly at the federal level, and the proposal has been left languishing on the table for the last three years. The matter will be revisited this December at the federalprovincial ministers annual meeting. And guess what? The CFIB is still singing the same refrain. It is predicting that raising the employer CPP “payroll tax” by as little as 1.5 per cent will have a negative impact on job growth as well as depress wages. Moreover, it is advancing the argument that employees themselves can ill afford a matching 1.5 per cent increase.

AirCare defenders hope for reprieve Vehicle testing program set to be scrapped next year Jeff Nagel Black Press

Metro Vancouver directors will again urge the provincial government to continue the AirCare program, which is slated to be dismantled at the end of next year. They voted at Thursday’s environment and parks committee meeting to draw up a new staff report that may offer up fresh ammunition for preserving the tailpipe emission testing stations that force heavily polluting vehicles to get fixed. “Whenever you go to a municipality or anyplace that doesn’t have AirCare you see vehicles with billowing smoke coming out, “ Pitt Meadows Mayor Deb Walters said. “You really see how protected we are in the Lower Mainland with AirCare.” Metro voted three years ago to support extending AirCare until at least 2020, but that was rejected last year by the

Welcome to the NewsLeader’s Christmas Favourites feature! It’s time to start easing into the Christmas holiday season, a time to gather with friends, family, co-workers—and sometimes all three at the same time. The holiday season is when many of us brighten up the dark days of winter with music, colourful lights and decorations. And this time of year is also a time when great memories are created. Many of those memories often those involve the aroma and flavours of Christmas cooking. Whether you’re looking for something simple to take to an office function or something more involved for a home event, you’ll find some great ideas in these pages. Every year, I love to try something new to add to my holiday season cooking. Many local businesses and politicians submitted their favourite recipes and I’ll be sure to try a few out. (Someone has to do the testing!) Thank you all for taking the time to share them with us. You’ll find some great ideas in these pages for treats and main courses for your holiday fare. On a final note, as you start putting those Christmas lists together, I encourage you to strive to find those perfect gifts through a local retailer. Let’s support our community by making sure we all think local first when we’re out there shopping. And most importantly, please remember those less fortunate— drop donations to the food bank or give your spare change to the annual Kettle drive.

An oil tanker travels beneath the rail bridge next to the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge in Burrard Inlet. Kinder Morgan Canada’s plans to twin the Trans Mountain Pipeline would lead to a significant increase in tanker traffic.

Bowen Island director Andrew Stone said one “huge” concern in the event of a spill is the “offgassing” of solvents used to dilute oil sands bitumen that could pose serious health risks and trigger large-scale evacuations of Vancouver and North Shore neighbourhoods. Drew, meanwhile, has exchanged a flurry of letters with Kinder Morgan officials and says he’s still not satisfied with their answers, particularly regarding the response to the 2007 spill from the Trans Mountain pipeline in Burnaby that released 250,000 litres of oil, some of which reached Burrard Inlet.

He says the cleanup response was slow and containment booms put on the water in the inlet failed to fully contain the escaped oil. Summer weather, daylight and the proximity of response vessels all made for ideal conditions, Drew said in an Oct. 31 letter to the company, “yet there was still a considerable amount of unrecovered fugitive oil that contaminated the beaches of Burrard Inlet.” Drew has also raised concern about tanker lights and noise, the size of the proposed new threeberth loading terminal, and the risk of earthquakes that could rupture the pipeline and trigger

a hard-to-contain land-to-sea spill, possibly in conjunction with a landslide near Burnaby Mountain. Kinder Morgan Canada president Ian Anderson a week earlier told a Vancouver business audience the risk of earthquakes is being studied closely but seismic reviews so far indicate Burnaby Mountain is “one of the most solid, secure rock bases in the Lower Mainland.” He also told reporters the steady improvements in leak detection, valve shutoff and other technologies that would come with a new $5.4-billion pipeline would actually reduce land-based spill risks. “It’s safe today, the overall infrastructure will be safer later,” Anderson said. While much focus is on the risk of tankers sailing through Burrard Inlet to and from the existing Burnaby terminal, Richmond Coun. Harold Steves said he wants Metro to keep a wary eye on the potential for Kinder Morgan to switch to an alternate oil terminal near the mouth of the Fraser River if opposition to more tankers sailing past Vancouver proves too fierce. twitter.com/jeffnagel

New Westminster courses though Evelyn Benson’s veins. Five generations of her family have occupied the same house on Sixth Avenue for more than 100 years. Her father, James Lewis Sangster, was the city’s mayor. She met her husband, Don, at New West secondary school. She helped found Royal City Musical Theatre and she’s a former citizen of the year. So when Benson began recording her youngest brother George recounting tales of the family’s adventures, she realized his stories were as much about the times and place in which they occurred as they were grist for dinner-table conversation. Benson has collected many of those stories in her new book, A Century in a Small Town - One Family’s Stories. Collectively, the tales form an oral history of daily life in New Westminster through the eyes of a family that arrived in the city by paddlewheeler in 1895, survived the Great Fire of 1898, helped roust a circus elephant to assist with the paving of

a street, stood amongst the crowd in Queen’s Park to greet King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, sent friends off to two world wars, and skated on a frozen Fraser River. They’re real-life experiences that wouldn’t make front page news in microfiche files of old newspapers or footnotes in history books. “They help to fill in the information gaps that are commonly part of documented history,” said Benson. “Through the first-hand accounts of the people who were there, we get not only the outline of history, but the living colours.” Those colours include memories of city fire crews flooding the playing fields in Moody Park during cold winters to create a vast outdoor skating rink, to playing stagecoach in the empty delivery wagons at the Dairyland milk plant at Eighth Avenue and Sixth Street when it was closed on Sundays, to a rat infestation in the Queen’s Park neighbourhood in the 1940s, to the side-by-side scoops of ice cream at Zeigler’s ice

cream parlour at Columbia and Eighth streets. “Common folk have stories to tell just as much as those famous enough to have their names written down in archives,” said Benson, who honed her love for local history and telling about it during her years as a school teacher. In fact, when Benson was called upon to make a speech at the opening of a new Herbert Spencer school in April, 1993, she told the students, “someday, boys and girls, you will tell your own children and even your grandchildren, that you saw the bulldozer take down the old Spencer, and that you were there the day they opened the new Spencer. So remember this day. This is an important day in the history of our community and you are an important part of that history.” • A Century in a Small Town - One Family’s Stories will be launched Nov. 30, 2 p.m. at the New Westminster Public Library, where Benson and some special guests will read a selection of the stories.

Ferry bosses swap bonuses for higher pay New system of salary holdbacks ‘bait and switch’

controversial bonuses, the corporation announced Wednesday they’ve been eliminated retroactive to April 1, 2013. In their place is a new salary holdback system that raises the base salary of executives by the fouryear average of their recent bonuses. Part of the new higher base salary will be held back, starting next April, and be paid out only if performance targets are met.

Jeff Nagel Black Press

It won’t be called a bonus any longer, but BC Ferries executives will take home almost as much money as they do now after a switch to a salary holdback plan. After months of promises by Transportation Minister Todd Stone to fix the

BC Ferries’ board chair Donald Hayes said the plan is in line with the province’s guidelines for executive compensation at Crown corporations. But critics aren’t impressed. “It’s bait and switch,” NDP leader Adrian Dix said. “This is a bonus scheme by another name. I don’t know why the premier thinks people will be fooled by this.” BC Ferries executive

vice-president and chief financial officer Robert Clarke received a $133,000 bonus this year on top of his base salary of $297,300, for total pay before pension contributions of $431,000. Under the new system, his maximum salary will rise to $403,000, assuming he meets targets and isn’t subject to any holdback.0 CEO Michael Corrigan’s base salary rises from $364,000

to $425,125 and he is forecast to get the identical overall compensation of $563,000 in 2014 after pension contributions and other benefits are added. Corrigan’s pay is capped at that level, which is 60 per cent below former CEO David Hahn, who had been dubbed the “million dollar man” for the bonuses that took his overall compensation into seven figures.

The corporation said a holdback plan for other managers wasn’t feasible so their base salaries will be raised by the four-year average of bonuses, which will no longer be paid. Hayes also announced a twoyear pay freeze for all executives and managers until 2016. “A two-year pay freeze is meaningless when you’re overpaying so dramatically,” said Canadian Taxpayers

Federation B.C. director Jordan Bateman, who pointed to the much lower salary of $165,943 paid to the CEO of Washington State’s ferry system. “I’d call this baby steps but that might be insulting to babies.” He said nothing has been done to address the real problem with bonuses or holdbacks – that they’re meaningless if the targets are too easy to achieve.

Several larger-than-life “ecosculptures” are also featured. These natural sculptures are decorated with lights and artisanmade decorations. New this year is a trio of giant eagles complete with hand-made instruments that visitors can play.

ing Crosby’s “I’ll be home for Christmas” is the quintessential Christmas song for me.

Recorded in 1943, it tells the story of a soldier overseas who wishes he could come home for the holidays. It pulls at the heart strings, with its longing for family and the simple joys of the season. There are so many sights, sounds and smells throughout the holidays that remind us of family traditions.

Lisa Codd The Burnaby Village Museum is the perfect place to revisit past memories, and create some new ones this Christmas season.

The purpose of the proposed Pest Management Plan (PMP) is to control vegetation, including noxious weeds and invasive plants, on ballast, rights-of-way, station grounds, yards, and around buildings, shops, material storage areas, crossings, and bridges using the principles of integrated pest management. The pest management methods proposed for use include hand removal and cutting, weed trimming, mowing, brush cutters, chainsaws, and the use of pesticides. The use of pesticides is intended within the area to which the PMP applies. The PMP applies to BNSF property within their New Westminster Subdivision, and is located in proximity to the communities of White Rock, Delta, Surrey, Vancouver and New Westminster. The common name and examples of trade names of the pesticides proposed for use under this plan include: aminopyralid (Milestone), chlorsulfuron (Telar), dicamba (Vanquish), diuron (Karmex DF), flumioxazin (Payload), glyphosate (Vantage XRT), imazapyr (Arsenal), metsulfuron methyl (Escort) and triclopyr (Garlon XRT). Application methods include: wick/wipe on applications, truck mounted shrouded spray boom, back pack/hand held sprayers, power hose and nozzle, squirt bottles and injection tools. The proposed duration of the PMP is from January 31, 2014 to January 31, 2019. A draft copy of the proposed PMP and maps of the proposed treatment areas may be examined in detail at: BNSF Railway, 400 Brunette Avenue, New Westminster, BC, or by contacting the Agent listed above. “A person wishing to contribute information about a proposed treatment site, relevant to the development of the pest management plan, may send copies of the information to the applicant (c/o SMC Consulting, Agent, at the address listed above), within 30 days of the publication of this notice”
