The value of voting Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Kei Esmaeilpour doesn’t care whom you vote for, so long as you vote. The Burnaby resident is displaying the campaign signs of all four of the candidates in his Burnaby North riding in an effort to reach out to potential voters. The signs for Richard Lee, B.C. Liberal candidate; Janet Routledge, B.C. NDP candidate; Wayne Marklund, B.C. Conservative candidate; and Carrie McLaren, B.C. Green candidate, currently adorn Esmaeilpour’s front yard. Esmaeilpour, who has lived in Canada for about eight years, is the president of the Civic Association of Iranian Canadians, a nonpartisan nonprofit group that attempts to inform new Canadians about the democratic process and issues in Canada. “Our goal was increasing the level of participation by the people,” Politics Page 9

‘TO ME, IT’S JUST THIS CONSTANT CONCEALMENT, HIDING HIS REAL POSITIONS ON THINGS,’ – CLARK

On pipeline: Clark takes swipe at Dix in Burnaby Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Liberal leader Christy Clark took a swipe at the NDP’s Adrian Dix over the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion Wednesday, shortly after casting her ballot at an advanced polling station in Burnaby. “(Dix is) the same guy who will obscure, who will conceal his positions on things, even really important issues like this one,” Clark said. “On the one hand, he says he

doesn’t want Vancouver to be a major (oil) exporting port, but he refuses to say whether or not he supports the expansion of the pipeline. … To me, it’s just this constant concealment, hiding his real positions on things. I just think it proves Adrian Dix absolutely has not changed from the last time he was in the premier’s office in the 1990s.” While Dix has publicly opposed the Enbridge pipeline project, he was reserving judgment on the Kinder Morgan expansion

because the plan has not yet gone before the National Energy Board, which is expected to happen later this year. Then on Earth Day, Dix made an announcement stating he does not want Vancouver to become a major oil exporting port, and he wants a “made in B.C.” approach to environmental assessments, but he came short of stating he’s actually opposed to the expansion plan. (It’s not clear if he is taking this stance to allow for flexibility in the future or to avoid accusations of flip-flopping.) Kinder

Morgan wants to twin the existing pipeline, which runs oil from Alberta to the West Coast, and nearly triple the volume of oil to 890,000 barrels per day, bringing approximately 408 tankers per year to the Burrard Inlet. The line’s terminal storage tanks and dock, where tankers fill up with crude, are both in the Burnaby-Lougheed riding. Clark couldn’t speculate on the fate of the expansion if Dix were to form government. Pipeline Page 9

ELECTION 2013: FOCUS ON THE BURNABY-DEER LAKE RIDING, BY NIKI HOPE, REPORTER

The personal and political: In their own words Rick McGowan, Green

Shian Gu, Liberal

Kathy Corrigan, NDP

Question: Who are you? Answer: I’m Kathy Corrigan, I’ve been the MLA for Burnaby-Deer Lake for the last four years, and I’m running for re-election. Q: How long have you lived in Burnaby? A: Thirty-six years. Q: Why do you think you are uniquely qualified to represent the riding? A: I’ve been involved in my community for all of those 36 years I’ve lived in Burnaby, have gotten to know the constituency well, have volunteered and worked in the community, so I think I have a good allaround perspective of Burnaby-Deer Lake. Q: What would be your own personal priority as an MLA? A: I think to continue serving the constituents who walk through the door, as well as focusing on some of the issues that are important, like Burnaby Hospital. Q: What accomplishment in your life are you proudest of? A: The accomplishment I’m most proud of is my four wonderful children that I’ve had with my husband, Derek. Q: Who in your life has been a role model for you? A: I would say, certainly in the area of politics, that Carole James has been a role model for me. She is a very wise and a very classy person, and I have a lot of respect. And, of course, my husband, Derek, is a role model for me in a lot of ways as well.

Question: Who are you? Answer: I’m Shian Gu, Liberal candidate for Burnaby-Deer Lake.

Question: Who are you? Answer: My name is Rick McGowan. I am the Green party candidate for Burnaby Deer Lake.

Q: How long have you lived in Burnaby? A: I’m not living in Burnaby. I have been practising medicine in Burnaby for 14 years.

Q: How long have you lived in Burnaby? A: I’ve lived in Burnaby since 1988, with some time I’ve spent down in the West End, and back to Burnaby in 2000 because it’s closer to my work.

Q: Why do you think you are uniquely qualified to represent the riding? A: As I said, I have been practising medicine in Burnaby for 14 years. I know the people in Burnaby more than my (own) neighbourhood. Q: What would be your own personal priority as MLA? A: As a starter, I would pay more attention to medical care. So my first priority probably is Burnaby hospital improvement. Q: What accomplishment in your life are you most proud of? A: I most proud of is that I am a family doctor, serving for the people, serving for community all of the time. Q: Who, in your life, has been a role model for you? A: My father. My father is a doctor, too – a wellknown doctor in China. He is my role model.

Q: Why do you think you are uniquely qualified to represent the riding? A: I’ve lived there a long time. I don’t know if I’m uniquely qualified, but I think we need a Green presence, and I want to build up the reputation and the confidence in people about the party – that we are not just a one-trick pony. Q: What would be your own personal priority as MLA? A: My own personal priority would be to represent the people of Burnaby rather than the party per se. The Green party does not have a whip system, so if there’s a disagreement between the government and the local economy, the local issues, then the Green party representative has the ability to speak for the constituents and the policies are viewed through the lens of the Green principles. To be in the community and to make sure that Burnaby develops in a sustainable way with a diversified local economy, and everybody, all 225,000 people, get represented. McGowan Page 10

Tight race last time, but now? Who knows? Niki Hope

staff reporter

The riding of Burnaby-Deer Lake includes one of the largest shopping centres in the country – Metropolis at Metrotown – and some of Burnaby’s most picturesque green spaces, including Central Park and the riding’s namesake, Deer Lake Park.

Its population is about 52,000 people, according to the 2006 census, 58 per cent of whom are immigrants. The largest number of visible minorities are of Chinese descent. It was a hotly-contested riding in the 2009 provincial election, when NDP candidate Kathy Corrigan narrowly edged out incumbent Liberal John Nuraney with just

a few hundred votes. The brouhaha over the location of a proposed remand centre became a divisive issue after it was revealed the Liberal government wanted to place a jail on Willingdon Avenue. The Liberals eventually nixed the plan after protests from concerned residents, but the damage was done. Nuraney had supported the centre, while

Corrigan opposed it, which likely gave her the slim advantage she needed to win. This time, though, Corrigan’s seat may feel somewhat safer, according to NOW columnist Keith Baldrey, who wrote last fall: “Corrigan could probably go on a Hawaiian vacation during the entire election campaign and still be able to hang Deer Lake Page 10

A STRONG PUBLIC EDUCATION SYSTEM BENEFITS EVERYONE

Liberal leader Christy Clark showed up in Burnaby to cast her vote on Wednesday, but she may have spoiled her ballot. Clark initially voted for herself, but then realized she’s not running in her own riding, so she asked for her ballot back and wrote Margaret MacDiarmid’s name as well. MacDiarmid is running for the Liberals in Vancouver-Fairview, where Clark lives. Elections B.C.’s position is that the voter’s intent must be clear. If it isn’t, the ballot is spoiled.

Realtors say transfer tax is top issue

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver has issued a press release stating the property transfer tax is a top election issue. The board has launched a campaign to bring people’s attention to the issue and is asking the government to reduce the tax. “Our goal is to send a strong message to this year’s candidates that it’s long overdue for government to reduce the burden of the (tax) on home buyers,” board president Sandra Wyant said in the release. The province introduced the tax 26 years ago. It was structured to add one per cent on the first $200,000 of the purchase price, and two per cent on the balance. To support the campaign, go to the Facebook page, help reduce the ptt. For more information about the campaign, go to helpreducetheptt.ca.

Pipeline confusion

All four Burnaby-North candidates spoke about the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline on the Bill Good radio show on CKNW earlier this week. The issue proved slippery, with some confusion about the actual location of the pipeline. Burnaby-North Liberal candidate Richard Lee stated the pipeline doesn’t go through the riding, but he was refuted on that by B.C. NDP candidate Janet Routledge. Lee later clarified that a branch of the pipeline, which carries crude oil to the Chevron refinery, does go through Burnaby North, but the primary Kinder Morgan line – the one that carries bitumen – goes to Westridge Terminal in the neighbouring riding of BurnabyLougheed.

Plentiful blessings on Mother’s Day IN MY OPINION Christina Myers

other’s Day is another few days off yet, but I already know what I’ll be unwrapping on Sunday morning. “Mama,” said my five-yearold this week, “we planted beans, for our moms, for Mother’s Day! They’re at school!” The second the words were out of his mouth, his face fell in dismay. “Oh,” he said. “Oh, Mama, forget. It’s a special surprise, so forget, OK?” I promised him I’d forget, but I haven’t; truth be told, I’m counting the days till I get my budding little bean plant. It’s a perfect gift. I’d be lying if I said I’ve never eyed up a pretty ring or fantasized about a spa trip (who among us couldn’t use a few hours of being pampered) but, deep down, I’m vaguely uncomfortable with the whole event. I already won the motherhood lottery: two full-term (though challenging) pregnancies, two safe deliveries (bonus points for the good fortune of being a mom in a developed country with a

relatively fantastic health-care system), and two healthy children who’ve landed in the hospital for stitches, slipped elbows and bad fevers, but nothing significant or life-threatening. Like I said, I won the lottery. Now I want a special day on top of it? Feels greedy. In my circle of friends and acquaintances, I can think of a half dozen women who have struggled – in some cases for years – with infertility; others who have faced the spectre of losing a child due to serious childhood illnesses; and those who have lost an adult child in accidents or to disease. In the last few months, I’ve seen a dad have to take over as the sole parent after the unexpected death of his spouse, and another family watch as their mom fights cancer. Over the years, as a reporter, I’ve also had the very sad honour of telling the stories of people who have graciously shared their lives with me: the grief of SIDS, the fear of extreme premature birth, the struggle of life-limiting birth defects, childhood cancers and diseases. When Mother’s Day rolls around, there’s a tiny part of me that’s wondering if I’ll get breakfast in bed but a bigger part of me that aches for those who won’t. I don’t know what it feels like

house wine or sort their purchases on Amazon by most popular.” He describes the behaviour as “herding.” As he also notes, folks aren’t even ashamed of saying that someone else probably has done their homework, so it’s better to rely on their vote than muddying the whole process up with their own uninformed one. How many potential voters actually read the full text of political party platforms? Very few, we suspect. Political parties, of course, are clearly aware of this behaviour in the electorate. In fact, they count on it. They count

on most folks not wanting to think for themselves or do any heavy lifting. Hence the simpleton campaign messages repeated over and over and the reliance on appealing to the voters’ most selfish instincts. (Including the ubiquitous promise to loosen up beer sales.) It’s all rather appalling. Not only are elections getting dumbed down, but voters appear to appreciate the strategy. The problem is that the house wine may be infinitely better than the elected representative chosen by the finite few who bother to actually cast their votes.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Plug nose and vote carefully

Dear Editor:

Like many elections, the current provincial election involves a choice of the least bad option rather than the best option. I am not happy with many of the things the Liberal government has done, starting with the harmonized sales tax fiasco, however, before people vote they need to consider carefully the alternative. Do they really want a return to the hopeless nogrowth ‘90s, when our economy went backwards and droves of young people left the province because their economic prospects were so dismal? Do they want a high tax anti-business government that discourages economic activity and

destroys jobs? Don’t be fooled by campaign rhetoric, unless you belong to a public sector union or another NDP favoured special interest group, you will suffer under an NDP government. Please think carefully before you vote. It is tempting to vote negatively to send an arrogant government a message, but before you do so, please consider the consequences. Garth Evans Burnaby

happening in my community with respect to government. I love how one of the “green” parties – the “greenest” one I can think of – is running in the upcoming provincial election. Perhaps not at all sure they will win, but running with integrity, because they believe in change – massive change – they know is needed to reclaim democracy from the hands of corporateowned governments. Known as the Green Party of B.C., I appreciate their love of the environment, never wavering, always committed to preserving our natural beauty, considering we are each wise stewards of the earth. I love that they are aware that the earth sustains all life forms and that whatever we do to the earth, we do to ourselves. I love that they know every human being deserves a say in the decisions that affect their lives and not be subject to the will of another. I love that they desire public participation at every level by directly including citizens in decision-making processes. I love that they know that violence is self-defeating, war must end and crime must be rooted out at its cause. I love that they know punishing crime will not solve or end crime, as punishment does not heal a wrong. I love that they know that instead of people being subservient to the economy, the economy, when run with love and integrity, naturally provides for human needs within the natural limits of the earth and that local self-reliance to the greatest practical extent is the best way to achieve this goal. I love that they know that the ethics of cooperation and understanding easily replace the values of domination and control. I love that they know that all humans celebrate the biological diversity of the earth and the cultural, sexual, and spiritual diversity of the human race.

I love that they realize power must be returned to local communities in order to be reasonably managed with integrity. I love that they know global sustainability and international justice can only be achieved when responsibility is shared at all levels of society. I may be called an idealist by some, nevertheless, my ideas of what I would like to see for our future are valid. More than that, some cultures have lived successfully for thousands of years aligned with the planet, until they were introduced to socalled modern-day “progress.” I’m interested in knowing what kind of a future would you like for your community?

Just not that into Christy Dear Editor:

All right, so I don’t know how to approach this. I’ve hinted and tried to talk about it, but it feels like Christy Clark avoids the subject altogether. Almost two years ago, we got together on my birthday, May 11, but the spark has gone. In the beginning, I was turned on by her passion. But over the past year she has changed. I thought we were building toward a great relationship, but for the most part it’s like watching a movie you were psyched about and then at the end they wrap it up by just having in giant words, “The End.” Maybe it’s time for her to go. And, sure, she can keep the clock radio. I’ve sought out others to talk to. Adrian Dix was no help. He’s focused on things I really can’t share in. I admit that there is someone else – He’s Dutch. In the past, he treated me like an equal partner. And yes, it’s about trust. A good relationship must be. It is also about respect. I wish he would come back.

Not knowing what those things feel like is already a bigger gift – equal parts genetic good fortune and simple pure

luck – than anything I could expect my children and husband to show up with on Sunday morning. This year, when you’re out on the weekend, be patient and gentle with the people around you, and take an extra moment to smile – one of them could be struggling invisibly with a grief that you can’t understand and don’t want to experience. When I wake up on Sunday, I hope I am filled

Pipeline: Dix ‘obscure’ on position continued from page 1

“I don’t think anyone knows, because Adrian Dix has taken so many positions on it,” Clark said. “He has said that they would allow the expansion if it was through Deltaport, his candidates have said they wouldn’t allow any expansion at all, his candidates have said they would review the existing job in Burnaby with the existing pipeline, so it’s impossible to know what they would do. I just don’t think you can trust anything the NDP says on this because they change their position so frequently.” The NOW made several attempts to contact Dix, who was unavailable to comment, but according to several media stories, he rejected the idea of moving the terminal to Deltaport. Clark has set out five conditions that must be met for any heavy oil pipeline project, Kinder Morgan and Enbridge included. The conditions are that the environmental review process is met, that there are “worldclass” oil spill prevention and cleanup measures in place for spills on land and water, legal requirements over aboriginal and treaty rights must be addressed,

and B.C. must receive a fair share of the economic benefits to reflect the risk the province faces. Even if Kinder Morgan met all five conditions, it wouldn’t necessarily mean that the expansion could go forward, according to Clark. “If the five conditions are met, for any project, then we would consider a project to go ahead, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it would go ahead,” she said. “But the difference between my position on this and Adrian Dix is that I set out five very clear conditions that must be met, and it applies to Kinder Morgan, it applies to Northern Gateway, it applies to any heavy oil that would go to a possible refinery in Kitimat, and I’m not changing my position on it.” Clark said she didn’t know if Kinder Morgan could meet the five conditions, and that none of them had been met yet. “It’s up to the company to determine whether they meet the five conditions,” she said. “I’m going to leave it to them to figure it out.” Nearly three-quarters of Burnaby residents are opposed to the Kinder Morgan expansion, accord-

ing to a January 2012 survey commissioned by Burnaby MP Kennedy Stewart, and the City of Burnaby has also publicly opposed the expansion. Dix was busy on the campaign trail, but BurnabyDeer Lake candidate Kathy Corrigan contacted the NOW on his behalf. She reiterated the point about B.C. conducting its own environmental assessments, rather than relying on the federal government’s review. “The federal government has diluted the standards,” Corrigan said. “And that’s not acceptable, and that’s why we need to bring it back.” When asked outright if Dix opposed the pipeline expansion, Corrigan responded by stating that when Kinder Morgan applies to the National Energy Board, “we will know exactly what it is we are dealing with.” “What Adrian has said is he doesn’t think the people of Metro Vancouver want the port, as busy as it is, to become a major oil export facility. Part of the environmental assessment process, that we’ll bring back to B.C. – which, by the way we’re going to do imme-

diately when we get into government – part of that process will be consultation, and seeking input from the people of B.C. … His belief and my belief is that the people of Metro Vancouver will not want the port to become a major oil export facility, … and that has to be taken into account when you’re making a decision.” But the NDP will still wait for a formal application, Corrigan reiterated. “Our belief is most people won’t want it,” she said. “Where does that leave us? We’re in agreement with what the majority of people in the Lower Mainland feel. … We will find out whether or not that is the case, and we think that will be the case, and we will also see what the proposal is, but we believe that’s how it will play out.”

Politics: ‘Not difficult’ continued from page 1

Esmaeilpour said. The issue is a complex one for Iranian Canadians, whose concept of Canadian politics can be marred by a fear of “back home problems,” he said. “In places without (democracy), people didn’t have a chance to practice it,” he said, explaining it can be a difficult adjustment for newcomers. Esmaeilpour became interested in the issue after he became a citizen and began voting and volunteering with political campaigns, he said. After working the phone lines, calling potential Persian voters, he realized he kept hearing the same reasons for not voting – even after being here for years, many people had no idea how to vote or how to choose who to vote for, he said. In 2010, he formed the association, along with Iranian journalists and other members of the community, in an effort to connect with voters in the Persian community. “We tell them, politics is not difficult,” Esmaeilpour said. Esmaeilpour, whose employment background is not political – he was an engineer in Iran and now works in technical support for Canadian Blood Services – stresses the groups is non-partisan and is a social-political association. It’s important that people use the democratic rights they have, lest those rights be lost, he said. “The people paid to establish this,” he said. “If we don’t use it, … nobody can guarantee we’ll have those rights anymore.”

onto her seat.” But Corrigan isn’t sunning herself on a tropical beach. Like her fellow candidates, she’s hitting the campaign trial. The Liberals have put forth Shian Gu, a Chinese-Canadian medical doctor who’s practised in Burnaby for 14 years. The Greens have candidate Rick McGowan, a teacher in New Westminster.

Kathy Corrigan, NDP Political veteran Kathy Corrigan made the move from the school board to provincial politics in the last election. She is onehalf of a local political power duo – her husband is Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan. If re-elected, her priorities for the area are the replacement of Burnaby Hospital, though she won’t say whether the hospital should be moved to another location or rebuilt on site. “I think what has to happen is a good look at both

possibilities,” Corrigan said. The Liberals’ “boguscommittee” fiasco hampered the Fraser Health Authority’s ability to look at health care in a wider scope, Corrigan said, referring to a three-page memo leaked last fall that outlined a plan to makeover the hospital to boost the Liberals standing in Burnaby. “I think this was another plan, like the (ethnic) quick-win scandal, to use health care in Burnaby, and specifically Burnaby Hospital, to gain votes,” Corrigan said. Pipeline expansion is another issue for Corrigan. Kinder Morgan wants to twin the Trans Mountain line, which runs oil from Alberta to the West Coast and a terminal in Burnaby. NDP party leader Adrian Dix issued a statement on April 22, saying he did not want Vancouver turned into a major oil export facility and that an NDP government would take back “decision-making authority” from the

federal government, likely over the environmental assessment. Prior to the election, Dix said he wouldn’t take a position until there was an application on the table. “I think what Adrian was anticipating was … people in B.C. are concerned,” Corrigan said. “I’ve always said I have real concerns, I’ve said that for months now. “We saw what (can) happen with a relatively small spill that was stopped within a number of minutes here a few years ago in North Burnaby,” she said. Corrigan said her party is focusing on building more affordable housing. “We’ve made a commitment to building 1,500 units a year,” she said.

Rick McGowan, Green In 2009, support for the Greens declined in every Burnaby riding compared to the 2005 election. But candidate Rick McGowan expects the party will do better this time around. He wants

That’s probably my biggest accomplishment. Q: Who in your life has been a role model for you? A: My parents. My father he did a lot for his community – never belonged to a political party or anything like that.

We’re from a small town. He was very active in the community and did his best to make it a better place. And also my mom did the same thing through her church work. They knew everybody and they helped build a strong, small community, and I think, even though Burnaby’s a city, that it has the opportunity to be a community where people know each other and you run into people you know and people are friendly to each other and don’t avoid each other.

government, Gu said. As for the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion, Gu said the Liberals have a “very clear” position that involves five conditions that must be met first. The plan includes an environmental assessment and input from First Nations. As for the environmental risk if there is a leak, Gu said, “Right now, we have more up-to-date techniques, rather than 10 or 20 or 30 years before, so probably (it will) reduce the chance of leaking pollution.” Gu criticized the NDP’s Kinder Morgan flip-flop and said the party has a hefty spending plan but hasn’t said where the money will come from. As for the question of homelessness, Gu said it’s an issue he’s looked into. He talked to a group that helps the homeless in Burnaby and was surprised to learn that there are more than 300 homeless people in the city, he said. “I think those people should be taken care (of) and should be looked after, and if I am elected, I’d probably pay some attention to this,” Gu said.

Homeowners get 2.47 per cent tax increase Stefania Seccia staff reporter

Burnaby council approved a 2.47 per cent residential property tax hike at Monday night’s meeting when the annual financial plan was presented. The expenditures for the 2013 operating and capital plans total $526,340,610. A staff report states this year’s budget focuses on immediate needs. “This is much less than anticipated for 2013,” Coun. Dan Johnston said at Monday’s meeting, adding the property tax increase of 2.47 per cent was down from the projected 2.99 per cent. According to B.C. Assessment, as of March, assessed residential property values went up by 2.05

per cent and the average property in Burnaby is worth $679,068. In 2012, average home property values rose by 10.71 per cent. For a single-family dwelling, based on the average property value, the tax increase means a yearly tax bill of $2,115 – which is a $71 increase. For a strata property, based on an average value of $372,054, it means an annual charge of $834. “Every year is challenging, and this year more so than ever,” Coun. Colleen Jordan noted. “Especially for our staff because there’s lots of needs of the community and lots of things that people would like to do, but we have to work within a tight framework. Unlike other levels of government, we can’t run a deficit if we wanted to. … This is why

we are having a tax increase, but a modest one, I would say.” Coun. Sav Dhaliwal said despite it being a small tax increase, it will still impact lowincome residents. “Regardless of the size of the increase, this will be difficult for many, many citizens to afford any increase – and it’s understandable,” he said. “Property taxes are traditionally going up every year.” Dhaliwal also said the way the property tax system has been designed needs to be re-examined because it isn’t sufficient to keep up with the city’s growing infrastructure costs. Last year’s $2.3-million surplus and its $500,000 library surplus were used to keep property taxes as low as possible, accord-

ing to the financial plan. “The city is facing cost increases that surpass the annual rate of inflation of 1.5 per cent,” the plan states. “Expenditure increases include collective bargaining agreements, operational and inflationary increases and provisions for new services.” This year’s financial plan is zeroing in on safety and security, maintaining and improving existing infrastructure for roads and community facilities and new services. More fire and police services represent a $6.4 million cost increase to the budget, as does a $1.2 million increase in operating costs for the new Edmonds Community Centre. The city’s garbage disposal costs rose by 50 per cent from residential toters from 2008 to 2012,

which led to an increase in garbage disposal fees. The amount of revenue generated from it is $2.45 million. Operating expenditures total $388,381,165, with parks, recreation and cultural services taking the biggest slice with 17.4 per cent, followed by 15.3 per cent going to general government services, 13.8 per cent for public works, 13.4 per cent for police and the rest for utilities, fire, solid waste, the library and the planning and building department. Fifty-five per cent of the operating revenue came from tax levies and also user fees, utilities, inspections, donations and grants, investment income and the surplus.

MOTORING

Cars can get charged up at Burnaby stations Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

There are now more places for electric vehicle owners to charge their batteries in Burnaby. Metropolis at Metrotown has installed 10 electric vehicle charging stations – six for mall customers and four for office tower employees. The stations are open seven days a week,

from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., and an electric fill-up is free. The charging stations are in the mall’s parking lot, off Central Boulevard. Also, the Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion (BACI) on Norland Avenue is now home to an electric vehicle charging station. BACI, a non-profit organization that helps people with disabilities, partnered with Big Green Island Transportation,

a company that installs electric vehicle charging stations, to apply for a provincial government grant to help cover the costs of the installation. There is one station that can charge two vehicles for free, but drivers need to call a number on the charger or get a card at BACI’s front desk to unlock the charger. BACI is at 2702 Norland Ave., and the station is in the parking lot.

Tired tires can be dropped at round-up Stefania Seccia

I

t’s time for spring cleaning, so Tire Stewardship B.C. and OK Tire have partnered up for the rubber removal event, Tire Round-Ups. For the first time ever, the event is being held in Burnaby, New Westminster and Vancouver on Saturday, May 11. Residents are encouraged to bring all their old tires, on or off the rim, to one of the roundup locations. “At each location on May 11, visitors can drop off their old car tires so they don’t end up in landfills,” said Mike Hennessy, Tire Stewardship B.C. executive director, in a media release. “It’s an easy way to get that spring cleaning done, while helping the environment and giving back to your community.” The program started in 1991, and more than 60 million tires have been recycled since. Most of the 37,000 tonnes of scrap tires collected each year are recycled into products such as playground surfacing, running tracks, garden stones and more. Tire Stewardship B.C. also provides grants to not-for-profit organizations that use recycled rubber in their products. The grant program kept about 1.5 million pounds of rubber out of the landfills, according to the press release. “The demand for environmentally friendly

Last weekend, COBS donated 50 cents from every scone purchase to Big Brothers Big Sisters Canada. COBS sold 45,000 scones on May 4 and 5, and raised more than $23,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs. “We were pleased with the outcome of our Big Brothers Big Sisters fundraising weekend,” Debbie Roque, COBS Bread marketing manager, told the Burnaby NOW. “The outpour of support received from communities, such as Burnaby, exceeded our expectations.” Roque said the donation amount will continue to rise in the next few weeks as more donations will come through other initiatives such as the tin canister drive. Fifty cents for every Facebook and Twitter share or retweet of the COBS and charity’s image was also donated. It’s the fourth year in a row COBS has teamed up with Big Brothers Big Sisters Canada to help fund the charity’s initiatives to recruit volunteers and reach more children. “It’s very difficult to overstate the importance of these types of relationships,” said Valerie Lambert, executive director of Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver, in a press release. “Not only does COBS help us with general community aware-

According to the organization’s website, Custodio received a trophy with his name on it but said it will be shared with his team. “I’m very lucky to have a talented brother who is Ok with sharing a business with, … without him, I’m not up on stage accepting this award,” Custodio said.

Preschool holding yard sale

Burnaby’s Hillview Parent Participation Preschool is holding a yard sale on Saturday May 25 to help raise funds for the school. “Our teacher has quite a long wish-list of things,” said Laura Sheahan, one of the moms who’s leading the fundraising campaign. “Things wear out when little kids are bashing on (them) all the time.” Hillview is a non-profit, parent participation preschool, meaning parents volunteer a few times a month to help keep the fees low and be more involved in their child’s development. The school needs new outdoor toys, a sound system and an oven, to name a few items. The fundraiser sale will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Hillside’s parking lot, which is at 4340 Carson St. (Accessing the parking lot is a bit tricky, I’m told, so watch for signs.) The sale will include children’s books, baked goods, coffee and car trunks full of good bargains. If anyone wants to sell items, the school is offering spaces: $20 for cars, and $10 for tables. Contact the school at 604431-0119.

Four ways to be a good mother to yourself all along. Though she has not been here to teach my children, I have tried to pass her lessons on to them. I can only give forward what she has given to me. I often remind my patients to be good moms to themselves. I ask them to channel their inner mom. We all have one deep down inside – just like the inner six pack. Some have to take a big breath in and dig deeper. Most of us tend to be hard on ourselves – critical, judgmental and unforgiving. We could all use a little more compassion for others and ourselves. Many of us don’t give ourselves the care we need. Here are four ways to

be a better mom to yourself – direct orders from your inner mom. ◆ Go to bed. Make sure you get enough rest. You’ll perform better at school and work in the morning, and you won’t get run down and sick. ◆ Go out and play. Get some physical activity every day. It’s essential for your emotional and physical wellbeing. ◆ Eat your vegetables. Don’t skip meals and don’t ruin your appetite with junk food. Though not everyone can eat an early breakfast, we all need regular snacks and meals

hen I come home to my wife at the end of the day, I know better than to ask, “What did you do today?” On the days she doesn’t work, she accomplishes a myriad of tasks that magically make the lives of everyone in our family run smoothly. Bills are paid, appointments made and events planned. No one is left waiting for a ride to school, music lessons or practice. No one is hungry. Motherly magic is largely invisible. We don’t

This was not to please her because her love was unconditional. When someone appreciates the best in you, you come to see it yourself. I imagine how different life would have been had my mother been alive for the past 10 years. She would have loved spending time with my children. She would have been there for all their sports, recitals, school concerts and graduations. She adored them as little children, and she would have adored them as they grew. We would have enjoyed her great meals and all the holidays that she would make special, and every one of my birthdays would have continued to be a celebration.

appreciate it until it’s gone. The days when my wife is out of town are long days indeed. Good parents teach their children the essentials, and they teach best by behaviour rather than words. We internalize – for good or ill – the lessons of our parents. Mother’s Day has been a difficult time for my sister and me since our mother’s unexpected death 10 years ago. My mother modeled unconditional love. She appreciated and expected the best in us but forgave us for being imperfect and making mistakes. She lived a life of selflessness, generosity and compassion. Her circle of concern seemed to expand without boundaries. She inspired us to give the best of ourselves.

SEYLYNN VILLAGE

600 MOUNTAIN HIGHWAY www.seylynn.ca

Just over the Second Narrows Bridge, The

Lower Lynn in North Vancouver is undergoing a major facelift. At the heart of this extensive renaissance will be Seylynn Village. Set to become a world class premier master planned community, Denna Homes the first developer to be part of the re-development of Lower Lynn will unveil the first of three towers in Seylynn Village – Beacon - later this spring. The Beacon, a 24 storey residential concrete building will feature 201 elegant urbane Uptown apartment homes and two storey town homes on the podium levels, slopping to take advantage of the sweeping cityscapes and magnificent North Shore Mountains.

Beacon offers truly livable suite designs, luxurious European finishing touches and a level of affordability not seen in today’s market. Homes at Beacon start from the low $300,000 (one-bedroom) and two bedroom starting in the low $400,000s. Similar to Burnaby, this Lower Lynn North Vancouver community means you’re just minutes away from downtown, but with mother nature’s playground at your doorstep. Seylynn Village is near the home of some of the greatest parks and outdoor adventure sites in the country. In another first, Denna Homes is offering a FREE one bedroom condominium to one lucky winner. “We have allocated 5,000

golden keys, which will be distributed to those people who register online and book an appointment to visit the Beacon presentation centre when it opens this month,” says Askew. “It is our way of saying thanks to the District of North Vancouver for welcoming us into the neighbourhood.” Come and see for yourself what all the excitement is about. The 7,000 square foot presentation centre and two-bedroom display home opens in early May 2013. For more information or to register for Seylynn Village and Beacon, visit www.seylynn.ca.

Emergencies big or small can happen anywhere and at any time.

BE PREPARED

Emergency Preparedness Week (EP Week) began 18 years ago as a way to raise awareness across the country about the importance of being prepared for an emergency. Here are five things you can do right now: Know the risks: Learn about local hazards and plan for those that are more likely to occur. Does your area experience flooding? Forest fires? Earthquakes? Make a family emergency plan: Since your family may not be together when an emergency happens, a plan will help you and your family know what to do and how to reach each other in an emergency.

Burnaby Lake ready at the doorstep Tom Berridge

sports editor

A defining moment in its club history is a day away for the Burnaby Lake Rugby Club. Burnaby Lake will be contesting the provincial finals in three separate B.C. Rugby Union divisions, including the premier men’s and women’s championship games at Wallace Field in Victoria this Saturday. The premier women will take on defending champion Velox Valkyries for the Gordon Harris Memorial Cup, while the men’s team will be up against the 22time Rounsefell Cup champion James Bay Athletic Association in the premier division. Burnaby Lake will also be vying for a third title when the men’s second team takes to the field against the host University of Victoria in the Division 1 final. The premier men advanced to the championship final with a 26-10 win over the Castaway Wanderers, the team that stopped Burnaby’s eightgame regular season win streak a month ago. Despite the loss, Burnaby Lake went on to win the league season with a 10-4 record over James Bay and defending Rounsefell Cup winner Capilano. “James Bay has had 22 wins in this competition. They are very experienced,” said Burnaby Lake head coach Kris de Scossa. “But we’ve executed our three-year plan with hard

On the run: Burnaby Lake Rugby Club back Joe Dolesau, runner-up in premier men’s scoring this season, will lead the regular season champs into the B.C. final against James Bay this weekend. work, and it’s coming to fruition. “We’ve shown we can compete with everybody. The final will be played in the cauldron of B.C. rugby, and we’re ready to go into that cauldron. We’ve been knocking on the door, and it’s been open for us, and we’re going to step on through.” Nearly 20 years ago, prior to the merger with

the Vancouver Trojans that led to the Burnaby Lake club, the Fraser Valley champion Burnaby Buffaloes nearly pulled off the impossible before narrowly falling to the powerhouse University of B.C. Old Boys in the cup final. De Scossa believes this weekend is another of those defining moments. While the women’s team has been no strang-

er to cup success, having won five Gordon Harris tankards since 2003, the men’s only taste came in 2011, when Burnaby Lake won its first Ceili’s Cup in the elite Div. 1 final. “We got here not with 15 men, but with four teams of men and two teams of women. Our club is strong and right now, it is a defining moment,” he said. “It could fulfill a legacy and

define this club going forward. Big things are happening. We’re going to go through that door, and no one’s going to stop us.” Burnaby Lake is scheduled to play James Bay in the Canadian Direct Insurance premier league final at 4 p.m. The Div. 1 final is set for 2 p.m., while the premier women’s final will kick things off at noon.

Braves showing they belong with the big bats Tom Berridge sports editor

Few gave the Burnaby Braves bantam baseball team much of a chance in their first-ever AAA season. But head coach Jason Smith was not one of them. Together with longtime minor co-coach Brian Moebes, Smith put together an excellence performance program at Burnaby Minor that is already having encouraging results in the 15-and-under league. A little more than one month into its inaugural season, the Braves were 8-7 in April, including a narrow 11-9 loss to powerhouse Richmond earlier last month. “We were hoping to finish .500 in April, and we did,” said Smith, who played ball at Canada’s

National Baseball Institute for a couple of years before beginning a career in sales. “(There) I picked up work ethic – the little fundamentals – the little things of baseball that make sure kids are smiling,” Smith said. Initial results appear to indicate the program is gaining traction. Without a network of high performance to build on, Smith and company are building the Burnaby Minor program around mentorship at both the coaching and player levels. Smith, who also oversees the AA program in Burnaby, invites minor teams and their coaches to train with the AAA Braves to show others the core training and other techniques that go into building a high-calibre program. He received a good initial

response when more than 40 kids, make contact at the plate. double the number he expected, “By the time June and July turned out for initial tryouts. comes around, I believe we will Smith has also have the team no one set up training dates wants to face.

The Burnaby South Rebels earned themselves a spot in the B.C. high school senior girls’ provincial soccer championships with a banner win over New Westminster. South defeated the New West Hyacks 2-0 at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-West in the championship final, earning the No. 1 BurWest district berth in the zone playdowns with North Shore next week. The Rebels will take on upcoming provincial hosts Argyle in the zone final at Lillooet Park on Monday. Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. New Westminster will face North Shore No. 2 at Ambleside-East, also Monday. With Argyle earning an automatic berth to the B.C.s, South has already claimed one of the two zone berths into the provincials. In the BNW banner final, South took an early 1-0 lead over New West on a goal from inside the 18yard box by Amie Morrison that beat the Hyack keeper low to the far post in the opening minute of play. Danielle Naherniak iced the win for South early after the restart, scoring on a high shot that tumbled into the goal off the keeper’s fingers. Moments earlier, German international student Anna Bruckmeir had her hard shot on goal clang off the New West goal post. From then on, it was up to the Rebels’ junior goalkeeper Dayle Wilnechenko to salvage the shutout as New Westminster gained an advantage in possession and opportunities. Hyacks’ forward Navneet Mahal had the best chance to score, firing two shots on goal from close range following a breakaway on goal. Wilnechenko got in front of both, including the ensuiing rebound, while Soccer Page 34

Juniors making subtle progress Tom Berridge sports editor

The scoreline appeared the same, but there were more positives than negatives in the Burnaby Lakers 13-5 loss to the Langley Thunder at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Sunday. Unlike Burnaby’s onesided B.C. Junior Lacrosse League home-opening loss to the Port Coquitlam Saints last week, the junior A Lakers gave a much better account of themselves despite the final outcome. The only devastating breakdowns in productivity came in a 12-minute spell to start the second period and an equally long period of time to close the game. In that accumulated one-period spell, the Lakers gave up 10 goals, with just one in reply, suggesting there was promise in their

play in the other two-thirds of the game. In fact, Burnaby held its own in the opening stanza, closing the period down 3-2 following the first two junior A goals for 19-yearold runner Justin Appels. The Lakers lost focus in the second and were outshot 24-5 overall, falling behind 9-3 on the scoreboard. But that stat could be misleading. Down 9-2 after giving up six goals on Langley’s first nine shots of the period, Burnaby settled down after a solid short-man rag, with Xander McDonald stopping the next dozen shots. McDonald faced 59 shots in the Burnaby goal. Burnaby opened the final period with team captain Peyton Lupul potting his first goal of the season, while Appels registered his first-ever junior A hat trick to halve the lead to 10-5

midway through the final frame. “We played a lot better. The energy was better, and heads were up,” said Appels. “We just got to practise (keeping our feet moving) even off the ball and get better at it.” Indeed, stringing good back-to-back periods will be the challenge for Burnaby early in the season. How well they respond could be the measuring stick for how far the team goes in making an honest improvement. “We’ve got to keep playing. Whether we’re up by 10 goals or down by 10,” Appels added. “It’s tough, you hate losing, but you have to start somewhere.” Burnaby’s next game is in Nanaimo on Saturday before coming back to the Copeland centre for a home matchup against the Coquitlam Adanacs on Sunday at 7 p.m.

Burnaby pick taken in CFL draft Tyler Digby, a first-round pick of the Burnaby Lakers in the Western Lacrosse Association junior draft, was selected in the fourth round of the Canadian Football League college draft on Monday. The 6-3, 250-pound junior tight end at Robert Morris University was picked up by the new as-yet-unnamed Ottawa franchise, which will begin playing in the CFL in the 2014 season. “I was just excited, humbled and everything. It was a pretty proud moment for sure,” said Digby on a long-distance call from the Pittsburgh, Pensylvania campus. Digby, who has one varsity letter in football and two in field lacrosse, will play his senior year at Robert Morris before weighing his sporting options. In the CFL draft, Ottawa had the opportunity to draft four NCAA players with eligibility remaining. Next year, as a fullfledged member of the league, Ottawa will have the first pick in all rounds of the draft. In February, Digby was drafted sixth overall by the Lakers. A second team allconference field lacrosse player this season at Robert Morris, he expects to suit up

with Lakers when he returns to town at the end of May.
