Edna and Allan Carlbeck of New Westminster will celebrate their 70th anniversary on June 20.
What 70 years of marriage looks like New Westminster couple celebrates milestone anniversary this month Grant Granger
Allan and Edna Carlbeck’s love has stood the test of time. It has endured through more than seven decades of happy times, depressing times and tough times. It was June 20, 1940 and Allan needed a date for a wiener roast high school grad party at Wasa Lake outside their hometown of
Kimberley. The 18-year-old knew his way around the dance floor and he needed someone that could keep up. That’s when he spotted 16-yearold Edna. “I saw her coming up the stairs. I thought she was so beautiful. She still is,” says Allan in the Uptown New Westminster condominium the couple shares with their daughter Melanie. “That’s why I’ve kept him all these years,” says Edna of Allan’s compliment. “Besides, I danced

pretty good. Some of those girls couldn’t keep up with those steps.” Out at the lake Allan struggled to swim to the raft and, says Edna, “I had to go out there and grab him and bring him back to shore.” “See? I saved you,” she says to Allan. “I know you did dear,” he replies. “Many times.” Four days later he was working for Cominco at its zinc and silver mine in Kimberley. In 1942, Allan joined the air force and after training he was posted to
Jericho Beach in Vancouver. Edna had been working at the Bank of Montreal in Kimberley, but in 1943 she got a job with the bank in Downtown Vancouver. The romance blossomed. They’d pick up fish ‘n’ chips for dinner and butterscotch pie for dessert before dancing Saturday nights away at the Alexander Ballroom, The Cave nightclub, the Commodore Ballroom or Happyland on the PNE grounds.

The B.C. Teachers Federation’s third round of rotating strikes has New Westminster schools behind picket lines today (Wednesday). The latest round began Tuesday with Greater Victoria teachers the only ones on strike. But today there will be strikes at 22 districts including Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, North Vancouver, West Vancouver and New Westminster. New West was also on strike when the second round of rotating strikes concluded Friday, June 6. New Westminster superintendent/CEO John Gaiptman said no district events will be affected by the strikes. He said today was the only night this week without a major event scheduled and none were on the calendar for Friday, June 6 either. “New Westminster parents have been incredibly supportive, so they understand because of safety issues how important it is to keep them home on those days,” said Gaiptman. see ‘THE KEY’, A8

CITYPAGE ILLEGAL DUMPING Each month, many property owners, including the City, are faced with the high cost and burden of properly disposing of items that have been illegally dumped on unsuspecting property owners or on City property. If you are unsure of how to dispose of unwanted items such as old furniture, electronic devices and other household items, call Engineering Operations at 604-526-4691 and they can offer several ideas for proper disposal, including arranging a Special Pick Up Service for a small fee. There are also recycling centres that will take used TVs, computers and other electronic devices for free. If the items are usable, there are a number of charity organizations that will arrange a pick up for you. Please see the City’s website at www.newwestcity.ca under the garbage and recycling pages for more information. For property owners who fail to dispose of discarded items from their property in a timely fashion, even if such items have been illegally dumped, the Unsightly Premise Bylaw No. 5969, 1991, may be enforced, resulting in fines and other fees. Individuals caught illegally dumping items may be faced with a fine of $200 and/or other enforcement action. If you observe someone illegally dumping on City or private property, obtain as much information as possible, such as a description and licence plate number, and call the Bylaw Department at 604-527-4657.

There are many dogs every year that suffer heat stroke/heat exhaustion, or even death, due to the neglect of some dog owners who do not understand how severely a vehicle can heat up - even in a short period of time. For instance, when it is 25 degrees outside, the inside of the vehicle can heat up to 20 degrees hotter – that’s a scalding 45 degrees! Clearly, this would be a serious risk to a dog trapped inside.
Monday, June 16 3:00 pm Committee of the Whole Council Chamber
Dogs cool themselves by panting and sweating through their paws; if they are in a vehicle that is too hot, they are unable to do either of these as the air and the upholstery their paws are touching are too hot. Even a vehicle parked in the shade with the windows open is not sufficiently cool.
7:00 pm Regular Meeting Council Chamber Please note that council meetings are now video streamed online at www.newwestcity.ca.
Heat stroke/exhaustion symptoms: • extreme heavy panting • excessive salivation • red tongue & lips red (eventually turning to blue) • signs of anxiety or staring • racing pulse • weakness/muscle tremors • convulsions/vomiting • lack of coordination • collapse, coma or death If your dog is exhibiting any of the above symptoms, act in the following manner: • remove from vehicle immediately to a shady cool spot • wet paws & dog with cool (not too cold) water • offer cool water to drink • take to veterinarian for further treatment • DO NOT USE ICE If you know you are going out for the day and your dog has to be in the vehicle even for 5 minutes alone, we urge you to leave the dog at home – they will be much happier on a bed with a chewy toy or a nice treat.
LAWN SPRINKLING REGULATIONS Lawn sprinkling regulations are in effect annually from June 1 - September 30.

New West hires truck cops Two commercial vehicle inspectors to work fulltime on nabbing unsafe trucks Grant Granger
New Westminster is hiring two commercial vehicle inspectors to nail unsafe trucks on city streets. The inspectors will be part of the police department’s traffic section but won’t have full officer status. The program is expected to be up and running by August. Up until now the city has conducted twice-a-month spot check blitzes. But putting truck inspections together required coordinating the police force, the Transportation Ministry, city bylaw inspectors and other bureaucracies. “It was quite a feat to organize truck inspections,” said Coun. Chuck Puchmayr, chair of the city’s emergency advisory committee. The full-time inspectors will know the rules and have the authority to enforce them. That allows inspections to be done daily, said Puchmayr. He insisted the move isn’t in response to the increase in truck traffic in New Westminster

attributed to avoidance of Port Mann Bridge tolls. He said it’s all about safety. He noted some surveys done in New Westminster have revealed anywhere between 10 and 40 per cent of trucks were unsafe and had to be towed away. “We identified that there is a large volume of trucks going through the city with such a state of disrepair that a significant percentage of them are not roadworthy,” said Puchmayr. “We believe it will make it safer for the drivers of the vehicles.”
He added the trucking industry likes the move because it forces operators who take chances with safety to pay attention. “It will balance the playing field for those companies being diligent in maintaining their vehicles,” said Puchmayr. The job posting said the inspectors will receive an annual salary of between $68,800 to $78,200. “This is a good thing for New Westminster and takes some pressure off our police service and puts their resources to crime fighting,” said Puchmayr.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
New federal legislation on prostitution seeks to penalize, with jail time and fines, those who buy sex and profit from the sale of it. But not those who sell it. Nor should they be. The Conservative government’s bill comes in response to the striking down of the existing law on prostitution late last year by the Supreme Court of Canada. In a 9-0 decision, the court decided that laws prohibiting brothels, living on the avails of prostitution and communicating in public with clients were overbroad. It ruled that Parliament has the power to regulate against nuisances, but not at the cost of the health, safety and lives of prostitutes. It noted that selling sex is not a crime in Canada. Nor is it under the new legislation, in all instances. Those to be targeted by police under the new law include pimps and others who exploit sex workers, even those who advertise the sale of sex in print or online. The bill would criminalize the act of selling sex in public places or where children could be expected to be present. Fines might range from $1,000 to $4,000 and jail time could be up to five years in jail for an offender who pays for sex. But, as SFU criminology professor John Lowman says, such laws will only again drive the sex trade into out-of-sight places, where women will be more vulnerable to predators like serial killer Robert Pickton. They do nothing to make the work safer, such as creating safe houses or brothels, with bodyguards, or issuing condoms. It makes no sense to say someone has the right to sell a service or product, but that someone else doesn’t have the right to buy it. What the government should do is follow what the court ruled, and that is to protect those involved in the sex trade. It can through decriminalization and regulation. – Maple Ridge News

Gas: the other pipeline showdown VICTORIA – The prospect of piping diluted heavy oil across northern B.C. and loading it in tankers has generated significant genuine protests, as well as bursts of celebrity nonsense, rent-a-stunts and instant online petitions. Natural gas pipelines and export terminals, on the other hand, are generally accepted by the public. Premier Christy Clark staked her political future on developing liquefied natural gas exports, and pulled off an upset election win that not even Clark expected. Most of the heat she’s taken on that is focused on her extravagant predictions that LNG will pay off the debt and maybe even get rid of our sales tax. But as I predicted 18 months ago, there’s a shift in the target of professional protesters to natural gas. A reminder of that awaited me on a morning walk to the B.C. legislature during the last week of the May session. At the front gate stood a young woman in a bikini top and shorts, her skin smeared with a dark material, presumably to simulate crude oil. She waved

to passing traffic, stretching a banner promoting a website for the “Unist’ot’en camp.” Legislature security intervened to clear the entry walkway before I could ask the protester who was paying her. The fundraising website she was promoting hadn’t been updated since March, but this isn’t the first time this camp has been promoted here. Chevron’s Burnaby oil refinery was also targeted May 30 by protesters who locked themselves to a gate with bicycle locks and chains. They also cited the Unist’ot’en camp and their aim to stop the Pacific Trails pipeline. The camp came to my attention last summer, when it was promoted by one of Victoria’s chronic anarchist protesters, a woman who goes by the name Zoe Blunt. Blunt and other southern protesters documented their trip north

to support the camp’s stated goal, to stop the Pacific Trails gas pipeline, planned to supply the Chevron-Apache liquefied natural gas terminal near Kitimat. The camp is on Crown land near Smithers. It was established at the end of a onelane bridge by two members of the Wet’suwet’en First Nation. While that community’s elected council maintains a respectful relationship with the B.C. government, the splinter group that backs the camp has confrontation in mind. The Unist’ot’en website is a jumble of demands and claims that alternates between the Pacific Trails gas pipeline and Enbridge’s Northern Gateway proposal. Like the woman at the legislature, if you want it to be against oil, it’s against oil. A clearer picture of this situation is provided by a relentless blogger named Greg Renouf, who specializes in investigating protesters across Canada. His blog, www. genuinewitty.com, should be required reading for reporters who are presented with slick
banners and posturing protesters. Renouf follows the money as well as the familiar faces who pop up at protest after protest. In April he reported that the increasingly militant Council of Canadians is supporting the Unist’ot’en camp, along with what he describes as “a host of NGOs, unions, militant anarchists and professional protesters.” They include Harsha Walia, who organized violent protests against the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Meanwhile in the real world, TransCanada Corp. announced last week its subsidiary NovaGas Transmission has signed an agreement with Chevron and Apache for a gas pipeline that will connect to Pacific Trails. It’s one of four gas pipelines TransCanada has in development for what is planned to be the biggest industrial investment in B.C. history. They can smear it with oil, but gas is the protest industry’s latest target. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

So much for conciliatory Re: Teachers show disrespect (Letters, NewsLeader, May 30) Gavin Palmer says the stand teachers have taken is “selfish, self serving and disrespectful towards students and the people of B.C.” And he finishes by saying, “Let’s move forward in a positive and conciliatory manner and be realistic about what is important and reasonable for the benefit of all.” He appears to believe the only problem is with the abovedescribed teachers. Successful negotiators would never be successful if they were to begin negotiations with those types of insulting comments. It should be noted that Mr. Palmer did not list any specifics, only generalizations. Among other things, he neglected to note that the Supreme Court of British Columbia ruled twice in favour of teachers with regard to class sizes, which of course is one of the major negotiating points. As well, the court awarded the B.C. Teachers Federation damages of $2 million. Therefore, one must guess that Mr. Palmer has no regard for the decisions of the Supreme Court of B.C. Nor did he attempt to compare B.C. teachers’ salaries with any other jurisdiction in Canada. Nor to compare with any other professions requiring six years of post-graduate education. What a pity that Mr. Palmer believes all the fault is of the teachers. So much for “move forward in a positive and conciliatory manner” etc. Donald Smith newspaper(non adteacher) 4.75” New Westminster

and we, his parents, excuse his absence from school yesterday. Yours truly, Margot Barton
At NWSS students are required to bring a note if they are away from school. This is the letter one New West parent wrote to explain his absence.
1 PLACE 2012
ON COMMUNITY MAILBOXES
To Fraser Barton’s teachers: I am writing regarding my son Fraser Barton’s absence from school yesterday (June 4). After discussing it with us, Fraser decided to take part in the student protest yesterday. He did so after giving it a lot of thought, reading about the issue in several newspapers and on social media, and with the permission and consent of us, his parents. Fraser has benefitted greatly from the work teachers do, no one is arguing that. But his education has been littered with labour disruption and he, like many students, is sick of it. His protest was directed at neither the teachers nor the government, but rather it was directed at the seeming inability of both sides to reach a compromise. As Fraser puts it, teachers are always telling us we need to learn to compromise. I would add that if neither side is willing to, what kind of a message is that sending to the kids? As you know, Fraser is a rule follower by nature. As such, this brush with civil disobedience has been very difficult for him. But he stood up for something he believed in, that BOTH sides need to negotiate, be willing to compromise, and find a path the middle. x down 6.625” We are proud of him for that,
Re: Cities ‘spoiled’ by postal service: FCM Daily milk delivery, daily bread delivery, they stopped and no senior died from lack of milk or bread. It’s a ridiculous argument. The post man can join the milk man and bread man in finding new work. Seniors didn’t live past 65 by being stupid or totally dependent on others to survive. Greg Eby

“Teachers have been nothing short of phenomenal. The work in the classrooms has been amazing, there’s a nice tone to the schools, they’re working hard with the students. I’ve been saying this from the beginning what continuously impresses me is the work being done in the classroom. With all that’s been happening they’ve been able to keep that away from the classroom and provide excellent service.” But he admitted if the time lost accumulates it will eventually take its toll on the children’s education. “I really believe if we find a settlement soon, the three days won’t have a negative effect because everybody is just working hard on the other four days to catch up for the other missed day. But the key here is there has to be a settlement soon. At some point I won’t be able to say [it won’t
have a negative effect],” said Gaiptman. B.C. teachers were voting early this week on authorizing a province-wide strike. Gaiptman said the district is working on contingency plans for a full-out strike, which couldn’t start until Monday, June 16 at the earliest. They’re also looking at what needs to be done if the province locks out the teachers for the last three days of school. “We’re looking at all the different scenarios. We’re also speaking with our union officials with the school district to make sure we’re both understanding the parameters the same way. In the end we also have to know some of this stuff might end up at the Labour Relations Board and we’ll have to adjust on the fly,” said Gaiptman. “We don’t want to get caught. You have to anticipate all possible outcomes.” He said courses are close
to being completed and high school exams are this week. “I don’t think you’re going to see chaos,” said Gaiptman. “We will make sure our students are not penalized. Report cards might look a little bit different, but we’ll get through this. We’ll make sure we’ll get through this, and make sure we’re ready to start in September. Hopefully all will be settled well before then. Right now we’re going through some difficulties but it’s certainly not chaos.” New Westminster secondary principal Phil Cookson said the school’s end-of-the-year ceremonies will go ahead as planned even if teachers are locked out by the province June 26-27. The convocation will be at Queen’s Park Arena on Thursday, June 26 starting at 7 p.m. The dry grad will follow afterward at the Queensborough Community Centre until 2 a.m.

the review could explore a redrawing of health authority boundaries. Asked if Lower Mainland health authorities will be amalgamated now that Fraser is without a permanent CEO and board chair, Powell said he’s heard “that rumour” but has seen nothing to substantiate it. Fraser and Vancouver Coastal already jointly procure various services and supplies to save money. Powell also responded to criticism that the detailed findings of the review team won’t be released, but will instead be summarized within a new three-year strategic plan for Fraser. He said the working papers of the committee are too complex for their public release to be helpful. “It’s not a matter of them being hidden, it’s a matter of making sure they’re interpreted correctly,” he said. During Murray’s seven years at Fraser, the health region’s budget climbed nearly 50 per cent, from $2.1 billion to $3.1 billion.

Ed Ministry lends New West helping hand Grant Granger
The Education Ministry is lending New Westminster school superintendent/CEO John Gaiptman a helping hand for the summer. The ministry is paying for a consultant who has bailed out other deficit-ridden school districts. David Greenan will assist Gaiptman in solving New Westminster’s accumulated shortfall of nearly $5 million. Greenan served for six months as the interim Langley secretary-treasurer in 2010. In that time he straightened out that school district’s finances which had been in dire straits. He has also worked with school
districts in Mission and Vernon. “Great guy. Oh my God, the best,” gushed Gaiptman. “He turned it around (in Langley). He was the guy that I wanted from the beginning, but he’s not cheap. Adding administration when you walk into a district is never a good move. We can’t afford to do anything but the right thing. From the beginning I’ve been telling everybody I’m looking for some help. And [the ministry was] good enough to allow me.” Greenan will work from his home in Vernon to help the district balance its future budgets while paying back the accumulated deficit. That task has turned out to be more
challenging than Gaiptman thought, and he’s not too proud to ask for help. “Let’s be honest, when they hired me they expected given my background for me to be able to do it, and I’m struggling,” said Gaiptman. “As a CEO, there shouldn’t be anything that’s happening that I don’t completely understand, and I don’t completely understand this and there’s no margin for error [in New Westminster].” Gaiptman said with the ministry footing the bill he can ask for Greenan’s advice at any time without worrying about the consultation’s cost to the district’s bottom line. twitter.com/lonegrangerbnw
Guilty plea entered in 2012 stabbing death A guilty plea to manslaughter has been entered in connection to a 2012 stabbing death in New Westminster. According to the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT), the plea was entered Monday by the accused, Charles Jameson (Jamie) Neel. He was charged with second degree murder in December 2012.
January Marie Lupaz, 26, was found in her home in the 500 block of Third Avenue with stab wounds around 10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2012. She died several hours later in hospital. In 2009, Lapuz was the first transgendered person to be on the executive of Sher Vancouver, an organization
supporting gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered South Asians when she was named a social coordinator, according to the organization’s website in 2012. A year earlier, according to IHIT, Lapuz legally changed her name from John Carlo Embo Lapuz. Neel will be sentenced Thursday.

Much conflicting information about vitamins
ost people end up taking vitamins or dietary supplements at some point in their lives.
The interesting thing is that this is usually because of some friend’s personal story of “amazing results,” or based on a sound bite they heard in a recent media report. They will take it for a while, and eventually it just stays in the cupboard because they aren’t sure whether it was doing anything. A year later, the bottle is emptied and chucked in the recycle bin because its past the expiration date. The truth is even the most well-read health professionals get confusing and often conflicting information when it comes to the research around vitamins and supplements. Let’s look at just two commonly used supplements as examples,
Dr. Gohar Sheikh calcium and omega-3 fatty acid. In February 2013, a large Swedish study reported that women who took calcium supplements had a higher mortality rate than women who did not take calcium, and that they doubled their chances for heart attack. Wow! That’s scary. Well, three months later a Canadian study found that calcium supplements up to 1000 mg a day lowered mortality rates. Confused yet? Now the omega-3s… In April 2013 a study in the Annals of Internal Medicine reported seniors with the highest blood levels of omega-3s had the lowest death rates. Yet
in July 2013, the Journal of the National Cancer Institute reported that men with the highest blood omega-3 levels had the highest rates of aggressive prostate cancer. Give up? I imagine you, the average consumer, trying to wade through the sea of nutritional information to try to decide whether you should take calcium or omega-3 fatty acid. And I think it’s a hit-and-miss situation at best whether you actually benefit from any of the supplements you have in your kitchen. So here’s what I tell my patients: that there is a place for vitamins and supplements, and it should be based on a health professional’s sound clinical judgement. There is much empirical research about deficiencies in our soil, air and water (and thus our food) of
If you follow reports on the media about the effectiveness or concerns about vitamin supplements, you’ll know that much of the information appears contradictory.
the nutrient content that existed there as little as 100 years ago. There is also universal evidence showing short and longterm benefit to certain reactions and processes in the body when certain nutrients are available at high concentration. That means better healing or better management of certain diseases or disorders, and perhaps less drug dependency, with use of certain supplements. A clinician’s judgement will also take into account many factors that are not considered in news headlines or media sound bites, which are really designed to attract shortterm attention only. Factors and details such as how a study was structured or conducted, or who are the people, groups or companies behind the funding of the study. Please see next paGe

What can I do? My mom is a hoarder
: My mother is a serious hoarder, and now that she in hospital with a broken hip, my sister and I would like to go into the house and declutter.
Mom has told me she likes things just as they are, and will never forgive us if we get rid of her possessions. My sister and I both agree it is unsafe for her to
eve silverman go back to the house as it is now. Not only that, but the house has not been kept up since our dad died 12 years ago. It probably is a tear down, as the value seems to be in the land. I am losing sleep trying
to figure out what to do. My sister says she will go along with whatever I decide. I am curious what you think we should do. Concerned Daughter
Dear Concerned There is no easy answer to your dilemma. Keeping your mother safe is a priority for sure. If your mom has not
been declared mentally incompetent there is little legally you can do. Contact the social worker in the hospital to evaluate your mother’s competence. See if there is a case manager assigned to your mom from Fraser Health. Perhaps they can help you with some guidelines in what needs to be done for your mom to be able to live safely at home.

what they’ve been saying. Dr. Susan Marynewich (right) with client Anabeli Fernandez
My hearing aid has been a great addition to my life. I had no idea how much I was missing out until I tried a good hearing aid for my particular needs. I had learned to live with a disability when there was no need to. The hearing aid resolved all the issues associated with my hearing condition. I had given up on hearing aids, until I ran into Susan at Mainland Hearing. She explained why my previous hearing aid didn’t work for me and why I should try a new one. She dedicated a lot of time to finding the right hearing aid but I ended up with the one that I was absolutely comfortable with (and all free to try until I had the right one). The staff is friendly, welcoming, and provide amazing customer service. – Anabeli Fernandez Read more at mainlandhearing.com

Strategies in caring for someone with dementia
ow do you talk to someone with dementia?
People with dementia lose certain communication abilities at each stage of the disease. As the illness progresses, they experience a gradual deterioration of their ability to express themselves clearly and understand what others say. But some form of communication remains possible at every stage of the disease. People with dementia are sensitive to the tone, rhythm, and volume of our communication. Using a friendly, calm, relaxed tone will put the individual at ease even if they do not understand what you are saying. Body language, though, is the most important form of communication. People with dementia take in the majority of the message through non-verbal communication. Your words may be saying one thing but your body language could be saying something else entirely. Here are a few tips: • Ensure the person with dementia realizes you are there. Make eye contact before saying anything • Smile. • Do not stand directly over above the person with dementia. Bend down to their level so they don’t have to look up at you. • Use hand gestures and other visual cues to communicate. • Provide touch and contact (as appropriate). • Be aware of personal space. They may not be comfortable with you in their “whisper zone.” • Avoid body language that conveys frustration, anger and impatience such as sighing, shaking fists, rolling eyes. GIVE THEM TIME & Talk clEarly
People with dementia have difficulty in remembering and interpreting information; as the
wendy scott disease progresses, the ability to manage complex information declines. To make communication successful, the message that you send needs to be short and simple. • Use simple, short sentences • Give one direction/piece of information at a time • Give enough time for the person to process information • Speak slowly and clearly MInIMIzE dIsTracTIons
Often, the person with dementia is over-stimulated in an environment that has “too much going on.” Ensure you have a quiet space to talk. look bEyond wHaT THEy say
The person’s emoting and feeling will remain even with changes in the brain and cognitive defects. What a person says, does and how they behave is a way to communicate and there is meaning behind these things. For example, agitation may be a way of communicating pain or hunger. accEpT THEIr rEalITy
The person with dementia understands and believes their reality, they will not accept ours, so we need to enter the person with dementia’s world and validate their emotions/thoughts/feelings in whatever time or place that is real to that person. Connect not correct. rEdIrEcTInG
A person with dementia may be focused on a skill or task that is no longer safe for them to perform. Your job is to keep the person safe and redirect their attention. This
Your Comfort Shoe Store
is a useful thing to learn. The following will help guide you. Step one: Connect and validate the person’s reality or what they are feeling or thinking. You are trying to understand the emotion and message behind what the person is saying. Step two: Join the person where they are and listen to their points of view Step three: Engage and
distract the person by pointing their attention to something else Step four: Redirect them by engaging in enjoyable activity Example: Step one: “You think that someone has taken your keys. I can understand why you are angry” Step two: “You need to look really hard for those keys? Well, I lost my book as well. Let’s look together”
Step three: “Let’s look for your keys by the piano” Step four: “I love it when you play Amazing Grace, could you play it for me?” Wendy J.

Join us in-store this Saturday for live music, cake & great deals! Come early, bring the family and you could receive a FREE Sears Gift Card worth up to $100!†
Dear Valued Customers, It is with great pride that I congratulate Sears Metropolis at Metrotown and all of our associates as they celebrate the store’s 60th anniversary. Sears built this stand-alone store from scratch in May 1954 – our ﬁrst large-format department store in the country. When it opened, the Burnaby store had over 125,000 sq. ft. of selling space spread over three ﬂoors. Excitement about the store was so great that more than 25,000 customers visited on opening day. To this day, the Burnaby store remains in its original location, although our neighbourhood has grown. In 1986, Metrotown was built adjacent to the Sears store. Sears Metrotown has been remodeled numerous times and may undergo another makeover in the next few years as part of our proposed development in Burnaby. For the past 60 years, Sears has provided a wide selection of high-quality apparel, home furnishings, major appliances, mattresses, home electronics, furniture, outdoor power equipment and more at great prices. As a long-standing and trusted member of the Burnaby community, Sears recognizes the special bond we have with the people of this city.
We appreciate that many of our customers have been coming to us faithfully for decades. We will continue to work hard to earn and keep our customers’ trust and stand behind our products, services and promises. We build our business in communities like Burnaby every day, and it is critical to Sears that we continue to do so in the years to come. We recognize that you have a lot of choices of where to shop and want to thank you for your continued business. Sincerely,
Doug Campbell President and Chief Executive Officer Sears Canada Inc.

School support deal struck ahead of teachers strike vote Tentative agreement gives CUPE staff 5.5 per cent over five years Jeff Nagel Black Press
The province has struck a tentative deal with 34,000 school support staff on the eve of B.C. teachers’ vote on staging a full-scale strike. The five-year agreement reached Saturday provides wage increases totaling 5.5 per cent, with potential for more tied to the performance of the B.C. economy – in line with the standard settlements reached with other public sector unions. It covers education assistants, school secretaries, caretakers, bus drivers and other education support staff, mostly represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees. The union and provincial negotiators with the B.C. Public School Employers Association hammered the deal out in just five days after start of talks last Tuesday. “This success provides ample evidence that the bargaining system works — when the parties come to the table with reasonable expectations and a flexible, solutionoriented approach,” said BCPSEA public administrator Michael Marchbank said.
“We built some momentum very quickly,” CUPE B.C. spokesman Rob Hewitt said. “The government came our direction enough to meet in the middle and we found a solution.” He said the union also secured increased hours for education assistants and standardization gains to extended health benefit plans. Asked if the timing of talks amid the intensifying teachers dispute helped CUPE negotiators, Hewitt said only the teachers were not discussed at the table. Also included is an Employee Support Grant covering any wages CUPE members lose by refusing to cross legal picket lines. The union’s support for the B.C. Teachers Federation and teachers’ pursuit of long-term adequate funding for public education “hasn’t changed one iota,” CUPE B.C. president Mark Hancock said. “Just as the teachers have been at our side as our members have fought for public education, we continue to stand with them.” The deal running through to the summer of 2019 must still be ratified by union members. School support staff get further wage increases in the final four years of the agreement equivalent to half of any increase of provincial economic growth in excess of the budget’s forecast.

How to make Father’s Day more enjoyable for Dad Ask the Pro
Dad gets to be king of his castle at least one day during the year. Come mid-June, children near and far scramble for ideas to treat their fathers to a special day and award him with gifts for being a role model, provider and confidante. Father’s Day activities should be centered around Dad’s interests. With that in mind, the following are some ideas to honor Dad or another special man in your life.
Q: I’ve noticed that you have renovated all of your sand traps at both Riverway and Burnaby Mountain Golf Courses. I always seem to struggle hitting out of bunkers. What is the difference between a fairway bunker shot and a green side bunker shot? Answer: There is a huge difference between a fairway bunker shot and a green side bunker shot. Watch this video. Fairway Bunker Shot: When hitting out of a fairway bunker, remember to keep your lower body quiet, don’t move your feet, grip down on the club, and make sure that the ball is moved back in your stance. When striking the ball you want to hit the ball first and then the sand. Try to remember to do your best to pick it clean out of the sand!
If Dad is a sports fan, his idea of spending a fun-filled afternoon very well may be cheering on his favourite players. Whether your father enjoys golf, tennis, baseball, soccer, or another sport like hunting or fishing, chances are there is a television broadcast on that you can watch together. Otherwise, you can surprise Dad by purchasing tickets to a sporting event and making a day of it at the ballpark. BEAcH BounD
A relaxing day at the beach may be the perfect way to spend Father’s Day. Dad can enjoy the entire family while sitting back in his beach chair and watching the waves roll in. Pack a picnic lunch with his favourite foods and a cold beer, and Dad may just say this was his best celebration yet. ADvEnTuRE SEEkER
If yours is a father who enjoys living on the edge, a Father’s Day activity built around action and adventure should be a winner. Take Dad base jumping, rock climbing, scuba diving, or race car driving. Any of these activities is bound to get Dad’s adrenaline pumping. REST & RElAxATion
Dad’s idea of the perfect Father’s Day may be an afternoon free of obligations and deadlines. A relaxing day in the yard swimming laps in the pool or hitting a few grounders to your waiting baseball mitt may be all the excitement he needs.
A bike ride somewhere special might be just Dad’s speed for Father’s Day this year.
Toss a few steaks on the grill to give Father’s Day a truly perfect ending. impRompTu pARTY
Some dads like to be the center of attention. A Father’s Day party in his honor, complete with friends and family, can be an entertaining way to spend the day. If you are worried about interrupting others’ Father’s Day plans, host
the gathering on the Saturday before Father’s Day and let Dad be the life of the party. Finger foods, barbecue, a limited list of cocktails and other beverages and some background music are all that you need to host a festive function. Plan a Father’s Day celebration with your dad in mind. Cater to his favourite activities and opt for entertainment that he will enjoy.
LOOK-A-LIKE CONTEST ENTER TO WIN a $200 BBQ Gift pack from Save on Foods PLUS a SemiPrivate Lesson for Two at Riverway Golf Course. SIMPLY ENTER ONLINE BY SUBMITTING A PHOTO OF YOU AND YOUR DAD! www.newwestnewsleader/ contest.com
Greenside Bunker Shot: When hitting out of a green side bunker remember to open your club face & stance. Adjust your ball position so that the ball is forward or off of your lead foot. Remember to adjust your posture so that you are sitting down on the ball versus standing tall. If you stand too tall you will thin your green side bunker shot. When striking the ball remember to hit the sand first and try to make a splash. We hope to see you working on your game at our practice areas and Driving Ranges soon. Thanks for swinging by!

SPORTS Jr. Salmonbellies score big The New Westminster Salmonbellies continue to roll along in the B.C. Jr. A Lacrosse League. The ’Bellies outscored their opposition 41-7 in two games on the weekend. They defeated the hometown Port Coquitlam Saints 19-5 Friday before going to Vancouver Island to trounce the Nanaimo Timbermen 22-2 Sunday. It was their sixth straight win and gives them an 11-1-0 record. They are one point behind firstplace Coquitlam (11-1-1) but have played one fewer game than the Adanacs. On Friday, the Salmonbellies outshot the Saints 71-27. Josh Byrne had four goals and four assists while Anthony Malcom had two goals and assisted on eight. Johnny Pearson scored three times while Connor Robinson and Luke Gillespie both had two goals. Others went to Alex Bohl, Adam Dickson, Nathan Stewart, Justin Goodwin and Quinn Mackay. The shots on goal in Nanaimo were 63-33 in New West’s favour. Byrne continued to pile up the points with five goals and seven assists. He has 25 points in three games since returning from ASA College in New York. Malcom duplicated his Friday output with two goals and six assists. Pearson matched those eight points with three goals and five assists. Robinson scored four times and added three assists. He leads the league in scoring with 64 points in 12 games. Stewart notched three goals and assisted on another. Jeremy Bosher, Chris Nasato, Mitch MacAulay, Wyatt Pinder and Dickson got one
each. The Saints (2-10-1) played a return engagement with the Salmonbellies at Queen’s Park Arena on Tuesday. The ’Bellies will be in Delta (9-6-0) Saturday before going to Coquitlam for a firstplace showdown next Wednesday.
Senior squad succumbs A 15-minute stretch in the second period proved to be the undoing of the New Westminster Salmonbellies Thursday. The visiting Victoria Shamrocks scored five unanswered goals to start the second period en route to beating the ’Bellies 9-7 at Queen’s Park Arena. New West is 2-2-0 while Victoria is 4-0-1. The Salmonbellies held a 4-3 lead after the first period on two goals by Martin Cummings and another pair by Jordan McBride. Victoria’s second-period run included two shorthanded goals and one on the power play. Colton Clark got a powerplay goal for New West with 1:05 left in the second and then Cummings and McBride got the first two goals of the third period. That narrowed the gap to 8-7 just 2:33 in but the Salmonbellies were held off the board from there. Victoria had a 44-40 shot advantage with Alexis Buque making 35 saves in the New West net. The Maple Ridge Burrards (2-2-0) will be at Queen’s Park to play the Salmonbellies Thursday. Game time is 7:45 p.m.
