Burnaby RCMP are investigating a home invasion incident Friday night which left one victim with a suspected broken arm. Police were called at about 10:30 p.m. May 16 to a home in the 4300-block of Oxford Street, near Madison Avenue, in North Burnaby. Three male suspects had knocked on the door and forced their way inside when a resident opened it, said Staff Sgt. Major John Buis. A family of six, including two children, were home at the time. During the initial confrontation, one of the suspects struck a male victim with an object, possibly a stick or a crowbar, and injured his arm. The victim was later taken to hospital for treatment of a suspected broken arm, Buis said. No one else was injured. The suspects, who were disguised, were armed with a firearm and other weapons. They went through the home and “as far as we know, nothing was taken.” He added that a wallet described as stolen in one media report may actually just have been misplaced. see HOME INvaSION, a3

Home invasion ⫸

continued from FRONT PAGE

And while a residential phone was found in the back alley, police don’t yet know if it was related to the house and the incident or not. The suspects then fled the house, two out the back door and one through the front door. The victims called police who arrived and immediately searched the area. “We had a helicopter in the air, we had ground search, we had the police service dog, nothing.”

There was “no apparent motivation” for the incident,” said Buis, who called it a “very unusual” situation. “We have no idea why this took place, no obvious signs … We’re still trying to find out what took place and why.” People need to be sure who is at the door before opening it, he advised. “Just be certain of who you’re opening the door to at night or don’t open it. And if you have any suspicions of anything out of the ordinary, call the police.”

MARIO BARTEL/NEWSLEADER

Brian Lumsden, of Bounders K9 Services, gets an affectionate kiss from one of his charges. Lumsden says he transports his dogs in an air-conditioned full-size SUV.

“I can’t think of anything worse than dying of heat stroke,” said Lumsden. Brigette Mayer of Mutt and Moggy holistic pet food and supply store in Burnaby, which also offers dog walking and pet sitting, said she’d welcome some sort of regulation of her industry

that sets minimum standards for training for professional dog walkers. “Anyone can call themselves a dog walker,” said Mayer, who’s been walking dogs for four years. “That’s not okay. People are trusting these dog walkers with their animals’ lives.”

Such training could include learning about dog behaviour, how to put a pack together, as well as first aid, said Mayer, who took a course through a San Francisco-based agency prior to starting her business. Lumsden said he’d welcome regulation. “It’s like daycare,” said Lumsden. “You want your dog taken care of like you’d want your kids taken care of.” Mayer, who’s already talked with other dog walkers about forming a professional association to set standards, said municipalities could also step into the fray by requiring special licences for professional dog walkers to use parks and trails. But no regulation is better than using common sense when it comes to transporting dogs as the weather warms up. “People don’t seem to realize in a confined space, a car turns into an oven,” said Mayer. “Within 10 minutes, a dog can be suffering.”

‘Our customers were very, very loyal’ ⫸

continued from FRONT PAGE

“I think so because the owners were very community oriented,” he said. “If the business was a lot better, obviously, we could have afforded higher rents and I think it might have changed things around.” And he’s not giving up the theatre begrudgingly. “It’s not fair to [the property owners] to keep going for such a long time with nothing for it. I know they weren’t making anything off of us. That’s not fair. They’re business people as well,” Manji said.

“The landlords were great and I supported them in their decision because I knew they did everything they could.” The Dolphin was built in 1966 and was originally a single-screen theatre before being twinned. Soon the cinema at 4555 Hastings St. will be demolished and redeveloped into a four-storey, mixed-use project. It will have retail on the ground floor, 11 wheelchair-accessible rental units for people with disabilities and 20 units of market housing. Manji said his six staff have been given the option to work at

his other two locations, and one or two are considering it. He’s trying to help in their search for new jobs. He’ll also be sad to say goodbye to their regular customers. “Our customers were very, very loyal to us. We saw the same people coming to us week after week after week. It was amazing to see the same faces over and over again.” For more information on what’s planned for the Dolphin’s last show, visit www.dolphintheatre.ca or their Facebook page at http:// on.fb.me/1qVrTJo/. twitter.com/WandaChow

I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing.

OPINION NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

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

PHOTO OF THE WEEK:

Time to speak up A spike in domestic violence in B.C. this year is a stark reminder that more must be done to address the reasons why men focus their emotional disturbance on women they know. More often than not, it’s women who suffer at the hands of their male partners in cases of domestic violence. There are certainly studies and case files of why men become violent and their inappropriate actions towards women and others. This isn’t an attempt to analyze what is going through someone’s mind when a relationship ends or life’s stresses become almost unbearable. It’s a call to politicians, activists, health care professionals and law enforcement agencies to not just leap to the defence of victims after the fact, but to provide resources to anyone when they need help dealing with massive and unwelcome change — ideally before the dam breaks. It’s also a call to parents, family and friends to confront emotions and uncomfortable situations with their loved ones head-on and change attitudes about how men deal with it. This is not responding to violence with violence — it’s simply a request to be willing to talk about life with a friend or partner instead of avoiding it, keeping it balled up inside and allowing it to fester. It’s about eliminating the concept of shame when to indulge in it is not appropriate for an individual or their social circles. It’s also about an individual being responsible for their reactions to any given situation, stressful or not. Only the individual can control how they react and if we want them to avoid violence, they need the tools in their lives to take a better path than the one that leads them to violence against another person. Everyone needs to speak up — if they feel threatened or if they are in crisis — men and women. —Victoria News

Why Burnaby Hospital deserves more Last week, I was interviewed for a NewsLeader story about long wait times for surgery at Burnaby Hospital. In it, I highlighted my concerns about what I see as inequitable funding. I disagree with the statements from Fraser Health executive director Dr. Roy Morton in that article. The major factors affecting wait times at hospitals across the Lower Mainland are the volume of patients coming to each hospital and the resources available at each hospital. Yes, RCH has been designated a trauma centre to accept trauma emergency cases and has the resources to care for them. But I doubt the majority of patients coming to ER at RCH are these types of patients. Often, urologists, ophthalmologists and other specialists are called from Burnaby Hospital to help care for these patients at RCH because these specialists are not regularly at RCH. Further, RCH surgeons are able to do their “run-of-the-

Dr. David Jones mill routine elective surgeries” at Eagle Ridge Hospital. The operating rooms at Eagle Ridge are closed in the evening, at night and on weekends.  Burnaby Hospital’s Emergency sees more patients than RCH Emergency—and yes, some patients roll “through the door bleeding to death” at Burnaby Emergency. Burnaby Hospital’s ER is the second busiest in Fraser Health after Surrey Memorial (SMH). And the numbers are even closer if you remove pediatric visits from SMH’s totals. SMH and Burnaby Hospital (when citizens of Burnaby and the eastern half of Vancouver are considered) both care for approximately 10 per cent of B.C.’s population. That is

7438 Fraser Park Dr., Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9 newsroom@burnabynewsleader.com burnabynewsleader.com | newwestnewsleader.com

why the Master Concept Plan for Burnaby Hospital, completed in March 2013, envisions a 700-bed hospital needed in Burnaby by 2030—about the same size as the new SMH. Burnaby Hospital has to deal with the total volume of emergency and elective surgery in house, in one set of operating rooms. Aside from thoracic surgery (separately funded by the Ministry of Health) done at SMH, the volumes of surgery at SMH and BH have been similar. The operating room resources for SMH are millions of dollars more than for BH—that’s what I mean by “inequity.” Surgery resources at Burnaby Hospital are only one example of the inequities. Endoscopy (gastroscopy, colonoscopy, bronchoscopy, and cystoscopy) resources is another. Space will not permit full description of the inequities. Despite this, the orthopedic surgeons, nurses and the rest of the staff at BH manage to repair more fractured hips than

any other site in Fraser Health. Recently, the surgeons of BH have had to “give up” some of their elective OR time so that more orthopedic trauma cases can be done. That will just make the wait for elective patients coming to BH even longer. If patients, even with “run-of-themill routine elective” diagnoses wait long enough, they often turn into “emergency” cases. Some elective surgeries have to be postponed when emergency patients have to be done - the waiting lists get longer. It borders on insulting to the staff at BH to refer to it as just a “community” hospital. BH does retinal surgery as well as hip and knee replacements for patients needing them from the Northern Health Authority and the Yukon. The surgeons of BH were the first, or among the first, in the Lower Mainland to remove kidneys laparoscopically, to do arthroscopic hip surgery, and minimally invasive removal of the prostate.

COMMENT

Diversity needed in local politics The announcement of a new political party to contest the upcoming municipal elections in November in Burnaby is an encouraging sign. Especially when that party is a coalition attempting to bring a more diversified and representative group to govern one of Canada’s most multicultural communities. The Burnaby First Coalition potentially offers the opportunity to replace, enrich or strengthen the present partisan monopoly of administration at both City Hall and the district Board of Education. Burnaby has experienced many positive changes, even with the monopoly by the Burnaby Citizens Association. But a diverse community is limited when its leaders do not represent all constituents. Oneparty domination stifles growth in any community. The mayor himself would have to agree that the existing homogeneous

composition of his council renders his philosophy ineffective, a philosophy expressed in his 2012 inaugural speech, when he promised to “incorporate consultation that will involve everyone” and viewed citizens’ “faith in the consultation process as critical.” He has often advocated for an “inclusive and interactive community and public engagement process.” So for the mayor, an opportunity to transform philosophy to action is created by the formation of a coalition, whose expressed purpose is to bring together a broader more diverse group of people. The school district can also benefit from the potential offered by the new party. In the present group of trustees, there is a paucity of people with professional backgrounds in education. This is like having school counsellors without any understanding of kids.

In spite of these deficiencies, schools can still achieve good results because of the number of stakeholders in education. I concede that there are some “nice” people in the present group of trustees. But at what and whose expense? At a few board meetings I attended this year, there was a noticeable lack of discussions both qualitatively and quantitatively on educational issues. My point is that at both the school board and at City Hall, some new faces, representing more groups and people, will advance our community further. Besides, strong and active opposition is needed in any government that is dominated by one party to hold it accountable. The BFC Party has the potential to do that.

Burnaby Hospital deserves fair share ⫸

Complicated abdominal surgery, except multi-system trauma cases, is done at BH just like at RCH. In the last few years, BH is able to do high-end shoulder and upper extremity surgery. I would invite Dr. Morton to visit BH so that we can update

him on what surgeries are actually done in BH in 2014. Burnaby is the third-largest city in B.C. and growing. The city and its hospital are in the centre of the Lower Mainland.  For all of the above and more, Burnaby Hospital and its staff should be congratulated and thanked.

Cost to save would be ‘horrendous’ ⫸

In the end, it was the poor condition of the house that led to the decision, said Coun. Colleen Jordan, chair of Burnaby’s community heritage commission. “There was nothing that would really generate enough money to fix it up because it’s really in terrible condition.” The previous owners were elderly and apparently didn’t do anything to maintain the home over the last 10 years, she said, adding it doesn’t even have a proper foundation.

“I guess you can do anything if you put enough money into it but to do it, the cost would be so horrendous it’s not feasible for [the current owners] to do it.” While over the years, Burnaby city hall has purchased heritage homes and restored them, the dilemma is always what sort of public use will they have, particularly to justify the significant expense of restoring and maintaining them. “Okay it’s nice to preserve the heritage but then what do you do with it … rather than

having it rented out as a private property for some fortunate person.” As an example of the expense involved, she cited the new roof being installed on the cityowned Hart House, a project that is still ongoing a year-anda-half after it started because it has to be done in keeping with its heritage requirements. Fortunately, Burnaby has gaming revenues it can put towards such expensive projects, Jordan said. twitter.com/WandaChow

Buying the right motorcycle for the right price You’ve got your license, you’ve got your proper gear, now all you need is your motorcycle. Here are a few things to consider before signing on the dotted line.

Budget Establishing a budget is probably the most important thing to outline when it comes to your new ride. If you’re buying used, this is particularly important. You might be tempted to spend an extra couple of thousand on the bike of your dreams. But if the dream bike just happens to be a nightmare and costs you an unanticipated fortune on repairs, you might find yourself in a pickle.

New or Used? There are differing benefits to buying new or used. New bikes have warranties, but a used bike that might not be too old could still have one. Buying used you could get a more upscale model for your budget.

Private Sale or from a Dealership? Speaking from experience, buying through a private sale can be a good way to go, especially on a budget. I found my bike on Craigslist. But if you can’t pay cash up front, dealers generally have financing or payment plan options. Dealers also have most likely done a tune-up or some service in preparing the bike for the sale.

‘‘

Establishing a budget is probably the most important thing to outline when it comes to your new Check the VIN ride.

’’

Alexandra Straub

through ICBC or a Trusted Database

It might cost a few extra dollars to run a bike’s VIN through a trusted database but can save you multiple headaches in the end. It will show if the bike has been in any reported accidents and detail the damage. It’ll also show if there is money owing on the bike or if it was reported stolen. Keep in mind, if the bike is from out of the country, the record likely won’t show.

Test Rides Private sellers won’t generally let you test ride, but ask. Dealers are more open to this, especially with newer models because they have demo fleets.

Mechanical Inspection If you’re buying used, and you are this close to making the decision, before you go to the bank and give up your savings, spend an extra $100-$200 to get a motorcycle mechanic to look at your potential purchase. Private sellers will generally ride the bike down to a location of your choice and let the mechanic work their magic. The mechanic will then let you know what things might need to be worked on in the near or distant future. If the seller thinks it’s too much work, then it’s your call if you want to continue to work with them. I wouldn’t buy a bike without knowing what I’m getting into. alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca

The New Westminster Jr. Salmonbellies scored six unanswered second-period goals en route to thumping the Burnaby Lakers 16-8 at Queen’s Park Arena on Tuesday. Burnaby held a 5-3 lead after one period thanks to three goals by Aidan Milburn and then two late ones by Peyton Lupul. But that’s when the Salmonbellies went to work with six second period goals and then the first two in the third period for an 11-5 lead. The victory gave New West a 6-1-0 record, one point ahead of the Coquitlam Adanacs (5-01). Burnaby fell to 2-5-0. Jeremy Bosher scored three goals and assisted on two others for New West. Connor Robinson also notched a hat trick along with one assist. Alex Bohl and Luke Gillespie had two goals and an assist. Singles went to Aaron Madaisky, Johnny Pearson, Riley

Glemnitz, Jessie Gillespie, Chris Nasato and Adam Dickson, who also had three assists. Milburn added a fourth goal in the third period for Burnaby with other Laker goals going to Randy Jones and Ryan Vogrig. On Sunday, the visiting Nanaimo Timbermen scored the game’s final three goals to edge the Lakers 10-9 at Bill Copeland Arena. The game was a roller coaster. After Burnaby took a 2-0 lead, Nanaimo scored the next six goals and held a 7-3 advantage after the first period. The Lakers then scored five goals to the T-Men’s none in the second period while also outshooting Nanaimo 26-10. In the third, Burnaby extended its lead to 9-7 before buckling under a 20-9 shot barrage by Nanaimo. Milburn scored three times and added two assists while Vogrig had two goals and an

assist. Other goals were scored by Quinton Bradley, Scott Petursson, Tyler Buchan and Franco Caporale. Two nights earlier, the hometown Port Coquitlam Saints defeated the Lakers 12-9. Milburn was again the Lakers top scorer with four goals and three assists. Jones also had four goals and added a helper while Volgrig had a goal and three assists.

Natural living at Bridlewood in Coquitlam By Kerry Vital

Located on the banks of West Smiling Creek and a tree-lined stream, Bridlewood by Polygon will have you feeling like you’re a part of nature. The peaceful location on Burke Mountain will make you enjoy staying close to home. Since opening for sale earlier this year, these homes have been so well-received that to keep up with demand, the second and final phase of homes at Bridlewood will be released for sale on Saturday May 24th.

The executive three- and four-bedroom townhomes are built in a Craftsman style, and feature warm cedar shingles, brick facades and gables. Every home has a generous deck or patio, as well as a private fenced yard. Inside, the warm wood laminate floors on the main level combine with large windows and overheight ceilings to make for a truly beautiful living space. The kitchens include stainlesssteel appliances, engineered stone countertops, and a family sized kitchen island.

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

The ensuite bathroom is made for luxury, with a glass shower with rain shower head, engineered stone countertops and his-and-hers sinks. All homes feature a convenient powder room on the main level and double car garages (side-by-side and tandem). Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain is one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in the Lower Mainland. Bridlewood has hiking and biking trails on the doorstep as well as the shops and services at Meridian Corner and Meridian Crossing. Coquitlam Town Centre is just a short drive away, as well as transit via the new Evergreen Line. This is the final phase at Bridlewood and the last opportunity to own a home at this sought-after community. Homes at Bridlewood start at $429,900. For more information, visit polyhomes.com, call 604-4729018 or visit the presentation centre at 3470 Highland Drive, Coquitlam, open daily except Friday between 12 and 6 p.m.

The homes at McBride Station are inspired by Fort Langley’s history and heritage buildings, and include such gorgeous features as stainless-steel applainces, quartz countertops and large frameless glass showers in the ensuite.

A piece of history at McBride Station By Kerry Vital

Fort Langley can feel like a historic enclave in the middle of the otherwise-bustling Lower Mainland. Local builder Lanstone Homes is contributing to that feeling with McBride Station, an exclusive collection of townhomes that has found inspiration in the past. “This is your chance to own a piece of history,” says Michelle Taylor, director of marketing for Frontline Real Estate Services. “This is going to be one of the last

opportunities to own new product in Fort Langley.” McBride Station is located on land that was once owned by Charles Edward Hope, one of Fort Langley’s first pioneers. The 52 townhomes are inspired by four of Fort Langley’s heritage buildings: The Hope House, The Carriage House, The Station House and The Marr House. The original heritage Carriage House is located right beside McBride Station, and The Marr House and The Station House are close by. The homes range from approximately 1,150 to over 3,000 square feet, in five different master-on-main or traditional floorplans. “They feel like a single-family home,” Taylor says. “There’s nothing cookie-cutter about them.” The exteriors have tons of curb appeal, with twelve different colour schemes to choose

from, a double-car garage and a fully fenced backyard with a covered paver stone patio. Inside, engineered hardwood and nine-foot ceilings throughout the main floor welcome you home. Coffered living room ceilings and large windows contribute to the spacious feeling, and every home has a full in-ground basement. The kitchens feature stainless-steel appliances complemented by quartz countertops, a marble mosaic tile backsplash and designer cabinetry, as well as a designer lighting package with island pendants, undercabinet puck lighting, dining chandelier and recessed ceiling lighting. Relaxing bathrooms have tile floors (with a heated mosaic floor in the ensuite), quartzite countertops and polished chrome fixtures. The master ensuite also has a large shower with frameless glass and a separate soaker tub

in some homes. On-site, homeowners will have access to a large greenhouse and garden plots with a fire pit and playground, and plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation on the McBride Station Trail that connects to the Fort to Fort Trail. Shopping at several local boutiques is just moments away, as well as restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, golf courses, and several other heritage sites. The homes at McBride Station have been extremely popular already. “Ninety per cent of the first release sold out in seven days,” says Taylor. Lanstone will celebrate the grand opening of the show home on May 24, as well as the release of the final phase of homes. Preregistration for VIP access is recommended. Homes start at $594,900. For more information, visit www.mcbridestation.com, call 604-888-7172 or stop by the sales centre at 9235 McBride Street, Langley, open daily (except Fridays) between noon and 5 p.m.
