Longtime Brentlawn Drive resident Terry MacDonald says his neighbourhood is plagued with rat-running traffic. The source of the problem, he says, is that Burnaby city hall has not fulfilled its commitment, made in the 1970s, to separate the traffic of nearby apartment buildings from the single-family neighbourhood to the north. It’s taken on greater urgency with redevelopment of Brentwood mall on the horizon.

A Burnaby Winter Club hockey dad appeared in North Vancouver court on Wednesday to face a charge of uttering death threats to another 10 year-old player on his son’s team. Cpl. Richard De Jong, of the North Vancouver RCMP, said the incident took place on Feb. 21 at Karen Magnussen Arena. The Winter Club’s Atom 3 team had just lost a playoff game to the North Vancouver Atom 1 team, 5-3. Police allege Terry Litt had a “threatening conversation” toward the young player in the team’s dressing room. An arrest warrant was issued and Litt turned himself into North Van RCMP Wednesday morning. BWC manager Len McNeely confirmed Litt was immediately suspended from the club after the incident, and subsequently quit. Domenic Palmieri, whose son played on the Atom 3 team, said the atmosphere around the squad had been difficult all season.

Dad to row 1,100 km for autistic son Mario Bartel

photo@burnabynewsleader.com

John Carinha had never paddled a boat further than five kilometres. In June, the love of his son, Brandon, will propel Carinha to row 1,100 km around Vancouver Island. Brandon, 9, has autism. What started as a basement hobby project to construct an Angus Expedition rowboat became Row4Autism. The goal is to raise awareness about autism as well as money for recreational community grants that use sports and fitness to connect with autistic children. In the past, Carinha, 37, had built a couple of small skiffs to putter around local lakes with his three kids, and go crabbing with his wife. He wanted to challenge his handiwork further, so he ordered plans for the expedition rowboat from Colin Angus, a renowned boat builder and adventurer who’d piloted a similar craft across the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. But it wasn’t until he saw a film at the Vancouver Film Festival about inspiring human-powered feats that he was gave his project a

greater purpose. It turns out he was right beside him, handing his dad tubes of epoxy, looking over his shoulders at the boat’s plans and paper templates. Carinha connected with the Canucks Autism Network and the idea of Row4Autism was born. To prepare for his epic journey Carinha has been working out on a rowing machine in the gym, running and rock climbing. He’s paddled his boat from Point Roberts to English Bay, a distance of about 50 km over open water. “Your back is sore, your hands are sore,” said Carinha of the gruelling toll rowing long distances can exact. “It’s more a mental game, making yourself comfortable with being uncomfortable.” Carinha expects it will take him four to five weeks to complete the voyage, with days built-in to recover or sit out rough weather. And he anticipates no shortage of that, especially as he traverses Seymour Narrows, Johnson Strait or rounds Cape Scott, areas notorious for converging currents and intense weather.

John Carinha and his son Brandon, 9, look over plans for the expedition rowboat Carinha built to circumnavigate Vancouver Island to raise awareness and funds for autism. Brandon was diagnosed with autism when he was two-and-a-half years-old.

“That shakes your nerves a bit,” said Carinha, who used GoogleEarth to plot his route and places of refuge should the going get tough. “You realize how truly small you are in the world.” The voyage will be selfcontained. Carinha will pack all his supplies in watertight compartments in the 18-foot rowboat and he’ll store caches of food along the way. He estimates he’ll eat

6-7,000 calories a day, most of it pasta and sauces, trail mix, dried fruit and fish he hopes to catch. The whole adventure will be captured on video for a film to enter in the Vancouver International Mountain Film Fest. Carinha’s nephew, Andrew Santos, a second-year student at Vancouver Film School, has been documenting the boat construction, preparation and training. And while Carinha hopes

his journey will help people understand autism better, it’s the shared moments of connection with his son that fuel his resolve. Like the night Brandon shot out of bed, ran into the living room, wrapped his arms around his dad and said, “Thanks for rowing around Vancouver Island for me.”

After the incident Palmieri said several parents signed a petition to remove assistant coach Mark Rademaker, who’s also the president of BWC’s minor hockey association. “It was an ongoing thing with the team,” said Palmieri, who has since left BWC. “We thought he should have done something.” McNeely confirmed there was a petition about Rademaker, but said it was not related to the dressing room incident. Palmieri, who was a member of BWC for three years, said other parents have also quit the club. “I didn’t like the way things were at the club,” said Palmieri. “Everyone has their own reason why they left.” Litt’s next court appearance is April 23.

Indeed, there were 53 written and verbal submissions in support and 28 expressing concerns, according to the report. There is a “spectrum of opinion on issues like this,” Corrigan said. Coun. Sav Dhaliwal said he supported the project but will continue to keep an eye on reducing the impact on transit users. Construction has required the bus loop on mall property be removed, and bus stops moved to adjacent streets. Coun. Pietro Calendino said construction naturally causes inconvenience but noted there will be benefits to transit users. The distance to the SkyTrain station from new bus stops will be shorter than those for the bus loop. And the developer is giving money to TransLink to build a new elevator to the station to improve access for people with disabilities. “That’s a positive we cannot really forget,” Calendino said. “It’s something that does not exist now that will exist in the near future.” twitter.com/WandaChow

OPINION

PuBlISHeD & PRINteD By BlACk PReSS ltD. at 7438 Fraser Park Drive, Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9

NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

Trish Jewison, Eye in the Sky Traffic Reporter for Global BC and AM730, took this amazing shot over Burnaby recently.

Critical thinking If there is an emerging theme to the 2010s, it is that many basic assumptions—no matter how cherished or long-held—are no longer enough to support our decision-making. No matter where we stand on the political spectrum, no matter how pro-environment or proindustry we are, no matter how trusting of government we feel or devoted to the rights of the individual, we are challenged to sift and examine facts, to consider the sources of our information, and reject propaganda and spin, no matter whether from ‘pro-’ or ‘anti-’ forces. We are faced by issues of such magnitude, whether globally (the effect of carbon emissions on the atmosphere, the spread of radioactive contamination from Fukushima, for example)—or locally (the Northern Gateway pipeline or expansion of the Fraser Surrey Docks coal port), that we can’t afford to trust the old simplistic, assumption-based arguments anymore. The downside of the information explosion is information overload—and this has not been ignored by those, whatever their political stripe, who have motives to coax us in one way or another. Pseudo-facts can be cobbled from elements of the truth and tailored to fit pre-existing assumptions. Our responsibility, no matter how we wish to shirk it, is to stay informed and examine, critically, evidence from all sides of the issues. Faced with information overload, the human animal has two basic responses. One is to shut off critical thinking and go with the opinions of those we’re told to trust. The other is to dig in our heels and resist any attempt to drag us into the future—no matter how much in our best interests it may be. Neither of these reactions will serve us well in the long run. —Peace Arch News

Will we ever learn to celebrate Earth Month? April is Earth Month, and April 22 Earth Day. We should really celebrate our small blue planet and all it provides every day, but recent events give us particular cause to reflect on our home and how we’re treating it. Through an amazingly ordered combination of factors, this spinning ball of earth, air, fire and water—with its hydrological, carbon, nitrogen and rock cycles, biological diversity and ideal distance from the sun—provides perfect conditions for human life to flourish. But with our vast and rapidly increasing numbers, breakneck technological advances, profligate use of resources and lack of concern for where we dump our wastes, we’re upsetting the balance. We’re a relatively new species, but we’re altering the geological properties of Earth to the extent that many scientists refer to this epoch as the Anthropocene — from the Greek anthropos meaning “human” and kainos meaning “recent”. When Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 disappeared March 8, crews in planes and boats set out to search the Indian Ocean.

David Suzuki Debris sightings raised hopes that the crash site was located, but they turned out to be endless streams of garbage that humans have been dumping into the oceans for ages. We now have massive swirling garbage patches in our oceans, and thousands of birds and fish from remote seas turning up dead, their bellies full of plastic and flotsam. We’re also upsetting the delicate carbon cycle of the planet and its atmosphere, mostly through wasteful burning of fossil fuels. This, in turn, is shifting other natural processes, including the ways water circulates around the globe and climate and weather are regulated. For a disturbing illustration of the damage we’ve done and how much more we’ll do unless we

change our ways, we need only look to the recent installment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Fifth Assessment Report. Findings show we’re already experiencing the ever-increasing impacts of global warming: ice caps and Arctic sea ice melting and collapsing; more extreme weather-related events like droughts and floods; dying corals; stressed water supplies; rising, increasingly acidic oceans; and fish and other animals migrating with some going extinct. Unless we act quickly, our food and water supplies, critical infrastructure, security, health, economies and communities will face ever-escalating risks, leading to increased human displacement, migration and violent conflict. Some argue we must choose between “growing” the economy and protecting the planet. In response, the report states, “Throughout the 21st century, climate-change impacts are projected to slow down economic growth, make poverty reduction more difficult, further erode food security, and prolong existing

and create new poverty traps, the latter particularly in urban areas and emerging hotspots of hunger.” We elect governments to act in our best interests, not to promote polluting industries at the expense of human health and long-term prosperity. Climate change is serious, and confronting it will take a radical change in the way we produce and consume energy—another industrial revolution, this time for clean energy, conservation and efficiency. Meeting this challenge, through reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to changes we can no longer prevent, will offer myriad side benefits, from better health and lower health-care costs to greater economic opportunities through cleaner and longerlasting technologies. There’s no excuse to keep on destroying our home. If we are to observe Earth Day and Earth Month, let’s make it a time to celebrate, not to despair.

COMMENT

You’re invited to our Tea & Tour Every Thursday 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Why do we gather paper, then ship it abroad? Ever wonder what happens to the paper we diligently sort and put into our blue boxes to be recycled? Did you think it was remanufactured into paper here in Canada? Think again. According to the report prepared by Glenda Gies & Associates in March 2012 for Multi Material BC, the current system in Metro Vancouver for recycling residential paper and packaging collects an estimated 109,257 tonnes from all households and depots. And most of it is shipped out of the country to have value added elsewhere. Although the prices fluctuate according to global demand for old newsprint and cardboard, recycled newspapers are typically sold for $100 to $130 per tonne and can be reprocessed as recycled content newsprint, paperboard, insulation or roofing paper. “Material recovery facilities” process in-house for direct shipment primarily to end users in the U.S. for reprocessing while the rest is shipped overseas. Corrugated cardboard is sold for between $110 to $160 per tonne and, again, is shipped to the U.S. and overseas to be remanufactured into new card and containerboard, tissue and paperboard. Local processors were asked to identify markets for residential packaging and printed papers materials sold in 2010. A B.C. market for old corrugated cardboard was available at the time, but it has since ceased operations. Mixed waste paper, which includes all types of papers, including some newsprint and corrugated cardboard, fetches between $60 to $120 per tonne depending on quality. But none of the processors surveyed reported sorting separate streams for materials that reduce the overall quality. This means they would most likely get the lowest selling prices in the market. Virtually all this recycled material is exported overseas where it is reprocessed and sold. And what happens to the truly badly commingled paper that can’t be packaged for export? I would assume it will end up in Burnaby’s incinerator or the proposed new plant

which would burn about 370,000 tonnes more per year, in addition to Burnaby’s annual volume of 280,000 tonnes. In reality, British Columbians don’t really recycle paper. We sort and export our paper garbage and recycling jobs while further polluting the environment burning energy to transport the waste offshore. If people were actually presented with this information, they might consider voting for policies that generate green jobs locally. Certainly, with appropriate incentives governments could foster a local reprocessing industry. We certainly have the raw resources to supply the industry. Rick McGowan Burnaby

JIM FLAHERTY A RARE POLITICIAN The sudden, unexpected death of former federal finance minister Jim Flaherty has left a huge hole in the fabric of Canadian society. He was universally liked and admired by all Canadians. He was the one member of the government respected by everyone. You didn’t have to agree with him to understand that he was a decent, honest man who saw his purpose in life as helping others and making Canada a better place. In my dealings with him I never once detected any interest in advancing his own personal interests. Honest, capable, dedicated, selfless—these are a few of the qualities that come to mind. His death is a great loss to our country and he will be missed by us all. Garth M. Evans Burnaby

FOR THE MOST PART, CAPITALISM WORKS Re: Dear Premier Christy Clark (Letters, NewsLeader, April 9) I had to look up the word sycophant. If Mr. David W.G. MacDonald uses it regularly, his education is a lot better than mine. But he still misses some of the basics. No matter how much he disapproves of profits and of those who seek profits, here is

one of my little secrets. In a nutshell, capitalism works (sort of) and socialism, not so much. Amongst many examples on file, are the two Germanys at the time of reunification. Did those from the West jump at the opportunity to adopt the other lifestyle? Do Americans climb into leaky boats to seek the freedom of Cuba? North Korea is another place where a capitalistic life style is frowned upon. How swamped is their Minister of Immigration? Even a few years of leftygreen ideology puts even the largest economy into a tail spin. Food stamp recipients went from 28 million to 42 million on Obama’s watch, not to mention a lot of other bad decisions which will take a long time to overcome. Canada, on the other hand, leads the G8 in recovery from the 2008 recession and would have done a lot better yet had we started building either one of the three pending pipelines. We just witnessed how, in retrospect, even the opposition appreciated the work of the late Conservative Finance Minister Jim Flaherty! Ziggy Eckardt

Throwing the camper into that last deal was a great marketing idea. And, like last time, I decided to branch out again. There’s so much more than just cars! This time I decided to go with a motorcycle. I purchased it off the internet – I guess you could call it a curber-to-curber transaction. Oh, of course I knew every trick in the book by now. The seller gave me my old story and said that he was the real owner. Did I care? Not a chance. It was a nice Harley. And, it was a steal. I knew I could flip it for more. Why? Because I was a better marketer. But I needed to do it fast. And, I had to make sure I had a buyer that was naive enough not to do a lien check through carproof.com, or the province (bcregistryservices. gov.bc.ca). As usual, I put up a generic, one-line Craigslist ad. With a price like mine, I had a buyer within an hour. I made sure the Harley looked its best. I polished it until it sparkled and filled it with gas. Hey, what’s a few bucks? Then I ran into a small problem. I found out that my seller was the real owner. Wow. But he sold me a vehicle that was about to be repossessed.

Fortunately, he was in such a hurry that he didn’t make me do the transfer – so it was still in his name. No big deal. Bridging* was my friend. I just used his name and hoped my buyer would never ask me for ID. And I was right. The buyer smelled a bargain and took the bait like fish. He thought I was the fool! No lien check, no ID check. Just cash. I was home free, again. And the best part? When the bailiff came for the motorcycle, he didn’t even know my name.

celebrations, at Burnaby Village Museum and Edmonds Park, will continue. They attract about 15,000 people. Given the stadium’s location atop the ridge that flanks the Central Valley, Mayor Derek Corrigan said the pyrotechnics will likely be visible across Metro

“The city is looking forward to something like this,” said Calendino, who added residents from East Vancouver may even venture across Boundary Road to participate. Ellenwood said if the new celebration is successful, it could become an annual event.

Rat-runners a problem ⫸

from FRONT PAGE

High-density development was planned for the Brentwood area even then. To mitigate potential traffic issues, proposals included a frontage road parallel to Lougheed Highway from Bellwood to Beta avenues. The idea was to give apartment residents access to their parking lots while lessening congestion on Lougheed. That frontage road was built, but only as far west as Delta Avenue. And while little happened for over a decade, the 1996 Brentwood Town Centre Development Plan threw a wrench into the works, he said.

The traffic system plan was changed to not extend the frontage road to Beta. And in 2008, Beta was opened providing access to both Lougheed and the residential streets to the north. He said that also went against the original plans and was done without notifying the Brentwood Ratepayers Association. It has also created a chaotic mess at rush hour, MacDonald said in an interview. Vehicles are trying to get into the condo developments to the east, into Brentwood mall to the west, rat-running north and south, and

*Bridging – A trick that curbers use to keep their identity secret. Curbers will pay more for a vehicle from an unscrupulous wholesaler or broker if they are not required to immediately put the vehicle in their name. This keeps their name out of the vehicle registry and makes them impossible to locate when deals go bad. Breaking the law is never a concern for them.

You don’t have to start on the road Many of the top road racers in the world didn’t start on the pavement. They started in the dirt. Why? Because it teaches you how to control a bike in less than ideal traction environments. Also, if you fall, it doesn’t hurt as much! You can certainly get your feet wet when it comes to learning clutch and brake control on a “softer” surface, too. Furthermore, you don’t need a learner’s permit if you are riding off road. When and if you want to transition to the street riding, you’ll need it for that. Check out Popkum Motor Park’s Lessons/Training (www.popkummotorpark.com) program for all ages, as well as the BC Off Road Motorcycle Association’s website (www.bcorma.ca) for upcoming MSF Dirt Bike Schools. Another perk to starting to build your bike confidence on the dirt, training programs aren’t as expensive. So, this is me, the little white angel on your shoulder whispering, “Go on, get on two wheels!” But remember, safety is paramount.

Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel competes on performance—at a price The introduction of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee showcased the direction of the new Fiat-Chrysler partnership. It went on to win more awards that any other SUV; in fact, I chose it as one of my favourite vehicles that year. Sales have been strong for not only Jeep but the entire Chrysler group. Freshness has been into each new vehicle and this latest 2014 EcoDiesel version is another example. For this model year, the Grand Cherokee gets a refreshed front and rear, plus interior tweaks and a thrifty diesel under the hood.

‘‘

The already capable and luxurious gasoline versions are less expensive and come with all the regular Grand Cherokee goodness.

Verdict

’’

Looks The most noticeable updates for 2014 include a thinner front grille, narrower front headlights with LED accents. This really makes the latest model pop; especially when you compare it to the last model. The EcoDiesel option is only available in two trim levels, and this an expensive vehicle. The Overland is the cheapest diesel and it starts at roughly $58,000, $3000 more than a V6 model but the same price as the V8. The top of range Summit diesel starts at $62,000. In comparison, the base VW

EcoDiesel is the same as the 5.7-litre Hemi V8 at 7200 lbs, but this truck gets substantially better fuel economy. For those that drive a lot without a trailer, the improvement in fuel economy is something to factor in. If you don’t drive a lot each year, the diesel option might not be worth the added cost.

The Grand Cherokee is a nice truck, but a tough sell at the price point.

Zack Spencer

Touareg diesel starts at $55,000 but most of the other German mid-sized SUVs with a diesel, like the ML from Mercedes or the X5 from BMW also start in the low $60,000 range.

Inside One of the biggest changes at Chrysler has been the attention to detail now placed on interior design and refinement. The latest U-connect computer interface is one of the best in the business;

many high-end makers could learn a thing or two from Chrysler. The large 8.4-inch screen is one of the biggest on the market and it is very quick to the touch, going from one function to the next is logical and responsive. Pairing a smartphone takes under 30 seconds and the best feature is the map screen, which enables the embedding of a picture in the same way as picture-in-picture TV does. The dash is covered in stitched leather and the cabin

overall is simple and elegant. All EcoDiesel models come with leather seats and the back seats can even be heated.

Drive The biggest change for 2014 is the introduction of an all-new 3.0-litre direct inject turbocharged V6 diesel engine along with an 8-speed automatic. With 420 lb.-ft. of torque, this engine just rockets away from a light and cruises effortlessly on the highway. There is a big premium

to get this engine over a V6, or lower trim level V8 gasoline versions, but there are some compelling reasons to choose it. Fuel economy is number one. This heavy truck is rated at 9.8 L/100km in the city and only 7.0L on the highway. With aggressive driving and mostly city, I averaged 12L. I did notice on highway runs that the fuel economy improved radically and quickly. The towing capacity of the

Chrysler considers the Jeep Grand Cherokee a premium offering but I would not put this on a par with the Mercedes ML, BMW X5, Audi Q5 or a very nicely equipped VW Touareg. It is a very nice truck with as much diesel power and efficiency as the competition but the German brands have been at the whole diesel thing a lot longer and are a known entity in the market. The Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel would be a very easy choice if it were about $50,000, not $58,000. If you drive a lot or tow, the diesel might be worth it, but as it stands now the already capable and luxurious gasoline versions are less expensive and come with all the regular Grand Cherokee goodness.

This vehicle gets you around town but the fourcylinder engine just doesn’t have enough power on the highway. I found myself constantly pushing the gas pedal to the floor just to keep up with traffic. Perhaps it is the CVT transmission but I would like to see a V6 option for this vehicle. Interestingly, the windshield wipers are noteworthy but not for a good reason. It was raining one day

TradiTioN a big parT oF easTer Preparation for traditional Orthodox Easter has been going on for at least a month, baking the Easter breads of Paska and Baba that symbolize Christ. They’ll be placed in baskets filled with other symbolic foods that comprise the Sunday morning breakfast that ends the 40-day lent during which no dairy or meat products can be consumed. Small breads in the shape of doves represent the descent of the Holy Spirit. Cheese and butter moulded in the shape of a cross or a lamb represent God’s gift of prosperity and peace. A dish of horseradish is symbolic of sin and its sad consequences. Salt symbolizes the fast and self-denial. And then there’s the eggs, each decorated with intricate designs and motifs that carry their own meaning.

Conducting an experiment at PortLiving’s Midtown By Kerry Vital

Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood is rapidly becoming the hottest place to live, and developer PortLiving is capitalizing on that popularity with Midtown, a mixed-used low-rise development that will also offer commercial space on the street level. For the next three months, PortLiving is hosting the Midtown Experiment, where businesses can open a pop-up

shop for a week to gauge how popular they will be to local residents. “The Midtown Experiment is an incredibly positive way to bring life and vibrancy to this emerging area, and to experiment to better know the types of businesses that the community will welcome and frequent,” says Midtown Director of Living Robert Vrooman. “We know there will be a lot of demand from retail partners to occupy the space, but we feel it is just as important to listen to the needs of the community.”

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

Midtown will be situated on Broadway between St. George Street and Carolina Street. The four-storey building will hold one- and two-bedroom condominium homes as well as two three-bedroom concrete townhomes. Among the beautiful features at Midtown will be private covered patios, oversized windows, engineered hardwood floors and elegant quartz countertops complemented by a glass tile backsplash in the kitchen. The bathrooms feature in-floor radiant electric heating and glass accent tiles in the bathtub and shower surrounds. Curb appeal is never in short supply at Midtown, with its brick-clad exterior and communal elevated courtyard, perfect for visiting with your neighbours. For more information about the residences at Midtown, visit www.livingmidtown.com. Information about the Midtown Experiment can be found at www.chinatownexperiment.com/midtownexp.

Among the gorgeous features at Lakewood’s The Heights are gourmet kitchens and oversized windows that let the natural light pour in. The Heights is just minutes from Morgan Crossing and several other amenities, making it the perfect place for families and couples alike.

Taste and style at Lakewood’s The Heights By Kerry Vital

Life is extraordinary at The Heights, Lakewood’s townhome development in Surrey’s Grandview Heights that offers not only amazing homes but also a location that’s second-to-none. “The location is phenomenal,” says sales manager Ann Sonnenberg. “You’re a 10-minute walk from the Shops at Morgan Crossing, and there’s a brand-new elementary school two blocks from here.” The Grandview Heights neighbourhood also has leisure opportunities, plenty of restaurants and easy access to transit and major highways, making commuting easy. The Heights is located in a quiet section of the neighbourhood, making it perfect for families and couples alike. The 39 townhomes, ranging from 1,364 to 2,095 square feet, are available in a range of two- and three-bedroom floorplans. The exterior has plenty of curb appeal, with meticulously landscaped grounds and front doors with heritage-style raised panels and

glass. Some plans include a ground floor concrete patio and a double garage. Inside, nine-foot ceilings and oversized windows combine for a spacious feeling, while sleek laminate flooring on the main level is complemented by decorative crown moulding and designer lighting fixtures. Homeowners are able to choose between two colour schemes (Vanilla Bean and Chocolate Expresso), making it easier to put your own stamp on your space. The kitchen is fit for a gourmet with stainless-steel appliances, elegant quartz countertops and a ceramic tile backsplash. Pot lights in the kitchen and nook are a convenient touch that demonstrates Lakewood’s focus on the homeowner, and the custom-designed cabinetry with solid wood shaker-style doors lends more than a touch of style to the room. Most plans also feature a pantry in the kitchen for even more convenience. The bathrooms can easily be described as blissful, with shaker cabinets with solid maple doors, designer faucets and accessories, fullwidth mirrors, ceramic floor tiles and quartz countertops. The main bathroom holds a soaker tub surrounded by designer ceramic tile, while the ensuite features a shower with a semi-frameless glass enclosure and hisand-hers sinks (in most plans.) Many plans also include a main floor powder room with elegant laminate flooring.

Each home has a gas outlet for a barbecue, perfect for outdoor entertaining, and every yard is enclosed. For larger gatherings, homeowners will have access to an outdoor amenity space with a community garden. “Lakewood always builds quality homes,” says Sonnenberg. “Some are available to move in to tomorrow; we also have some Phase 2 homes that will be available between now and the end of June.” Homes at The Heights start at $359,900 for a two-bedroom-and-den home. For more information, visit www.theheightsliving.ca, call 778-545-8737 or visit the showhomes at 2845 and 2855 156th Street, Surrey, open daily except Friday between 12 and 5 p.m.
