Meet the Zanottos Burnaby family becomes subject of reality TV show Marelle Reid staff reporter
The Zanottos are not your average family. Parents Tina and Franco Zanotto live with their adult children, Guiliana, 27, and Mareno, 26, and teenage daughter, Tatiana, in a neatly kept house in North Burnaby where they all eat breakfast and dinner together every single day. They’re very close, yet they couldn’t be more different from each other. So when Life Studios Inc., a Vancouver production company, started looking for a subject for its first reality TV show and was introduced to the family through a mutual friend in the entertainment industry, producer Jacob Wasef felt the Zanottos were a perfect fit. “Working with their personalities (we found) they’re very down-to-earth people, but at the same time they have extra-ordinary lives,” he said.

Real life: North Burnaby family, the Zanottos, (left to right) Mareno, Tina, Guiliana, Tatiana and Franco, have been featured in a pilot for a new reality TV show called La Famiglia. Vancouver-based Life Studios Inc. has finished editing a pilot for the series which the producer says is close to being picked up by a major North American network.
No more oil exports – Burnaby tells port Stefania Seccia staff reporter
Burnaby does not want to see more petroleum exports coming through its water, and has a thing or two to say about utilizing the marine and land area surrounding the city’s ports. In January 2012, Port Metro Vancouver initiated a public process to update its Port Land Use Plan, which would lead to an integrated plan for the region’s former
individual ports for the first time ever. The planning process includes Burnaby’s Burrard Inlet waterfront and harbour, and the city’s riverfront on the North Arm of the Fraser River. The port authority began a consultation process with local municipalities to share information and get feedback. The affected sites include the Chevron Refinery, Confederation Park and Berry Point, among others. At its Monday night meeting, council approved a report that both opposes the
expansion of petroleum exports and makes about 15 suggestions for the port’s marine and land-use designations. Mayor Derek Corrigan said council does not oppose jobs, but there are many different ways of achieving a well-run economy. “I want to add that there’s a lot of misdescription about what goes on in these kind of discussions,” Corrigan said. “In the sense that people want to describe it as being opposed to jobs, or opposed to the economy – the reality is that I think all of
us understand (that) the port is a working port.” Corrigan noted that the port has significant industrial activity, which takes Canadian goods all over the world and imports goods throughout North America. “But we can’t forget the second biggest industry in British Columbia is tourism,” he said. “And the reality is that the port … has some of the most beautiful beaches in Oil Page 10

Meet Mae: She challenges the status quo T
he NOW sat down with Burnaby’s Mae Burrows to chat about her decades of environmental work. Burrows founded the Labour Environmental Alliance Society (now known as Toxic Free Canada) and campaigned to eradicate harmful chemicals from the workplace. She is also wellknown for producing the CancerSmart Consumer Guide, a handbook on common carcinogens found in food and household cleaners. Burrows was recently honoured with a YWCA Women of Distinction award.
Burnaby’s Mae Burrows has pushed for social justice, environment and health issues for most of her life. She shares her triumphs and experiences with the Burnaby NOW, including her move into advocating to eradicate child poverty, and working to help those with addiction and mental health issues.
Question: How do you describe what you do? Answer: Definitely challenging a lot of the status quo, doing ON MY BEAT education work and Jennifer Moreau gathering people together to make social change, sometimes directed at the environment, but other times directed at poverty or social justice issues. Q: How long have you been doing this kind of work? A: I was doing work with the Canadian Farmworkers’ Union on pesticides in the ’80s, so really since then, (and) doing official environmental work since the ’90s. Q: There is a connection between the labour movement and protecting the environment in your work. Can you tell me a bit about that? A: In 1990, I started working for the United Fishermen and Allied Workers’ Union as their environmental director and the executive director of the T. Buck Suzuki Environmental Foundation, which is their environmental organization. Fishermen are naturally environmentalists, because if you don’t have healthy fish habitat, you don’t have an income. … But it was a real problem for them to be called either workers or environmentalists, because they were both. So what we did through the Vancouver and District Labour Council environment committee was to try to break down this fight. Q: You’ve also referred to that era as a “war in the woods,” with environmentalists attacking loggers. Greenpeace was attacking fishing boats on the Fraser – there was a lot of animosity there. How did you bridge that gap? A: Our strategy was to work with labour people and environmentalists who wanted to communicate, and if people on the edges wanted to continue to fight, they could do that. But, we tried to start building relationships, so we became a much bigger movement than them, so they were pushed to the outside. We started holding monthly forums, where people thought they’d just go in there and fight
Jason Lang/bur naby now
all the time, but we always had food in the beginning, and we’d have really good presentations – and not contained or controlled presentations – really civil discussions. And people would find oftentimes they would have 95 per cent in common. There might be just small areas they didn’t have in common, and they had to agree to disagree or go find some more science to explore that part, and they’d have lunch together. … So that was the first phase of the Labour Environmental Alliance Society – finding forums. Q: You also worked on issues around trade, privatizing seniors’ care and water and what you call the “passive privatization” by the way tree farm licences were given out … and then you got involved in sewage? A: I started looking at who the big polluters in the Fraser were, and you’d think it’s industry, … but it wasn’t. Municipal sewage was always on the top. … And it was raw sewage. … We worked with Sierra Legal Defence and used the federal fisheries act. In those days, there was a clause that said any corporation or agent of the corporation putting substances deleterious to fish in the water could be charged in criminal court. So we would charge the Greater Regional Vancouver District and the province with sewage charges. We took them
Arts & Entertainment
to court several times. Q: Also, you were saying, most of the GVRD mayors at the time voted against upgrading Richmond’s sewage treatment plant? A: We put a press release out … saying we would take each one of the mayors individually (who voted against it) to court, because that’s what we could do under the fisheries act. Our campaign was really about asking people to think about how much it was going to cost to upgrade the sewage treatment, which in those days it would have meant the price of one large pizza per family in the GVRD for each year of three years to do the upgrade. … People will give up a large pizza once a year to get the sewage out of the water, and (the mayors) turned around and voted by Saturday of the same week to do the upgrade. Q: How did you get into the campaign against harmful toxins in the workplace? A: At a fisherman’s convention, we had one every year, it was mostly women that came to the environment committee, and we had ones that worked up in Port Rupert and Port Hardy – aboriginal women, immigrant women, who were working in the canneries. … The cleaners would come through with really harsh
Loblaws* Buy Low Foods* Fair Market* M&M Meats* Molly Maid* Extra Foods* South Asia Link* * not in all areas
cleaners, and some of (the women) would have real respiratory problems … or rashes from coming into contact with the cleaners, some were really abrasive. … What was being used in the workplace was going directly into the ocean untreated, so that would affect the fish population. So if you eliminated the cleaning products from the workplace, you would have a healthier workplace for the workers, and you’d have a healthier ocean, and that’s what started the whole cleaners and toxins project. Q: What projects or accomplishments do you think you’re best known for? A: The early environmental stuff, the sewage and (stopping) the Kemano (dam Alcan wanted to build in northwest B.C.), and I think also occupational exposures, because we expanded the toxins program to asbestos and so on. So cleaners and toxins, that sort of thing, … and the CancerSmart Consumer Guide, and the breast cancer guide and the right-to-know labelling. Q: What’s next for you? A: I’m moving into another field. Partly I’m working in child poverty and the living-wage campaign with First Call. … and I’m also starting to do a fair amount of work in addictions and mental health. email@example.com

the authority. Take, for example, the Mayor Derek Corrigan, hit the nail recent proposal to have Fraser Surrey on the head when he said Port Metro Docks export thermal coal from the U.S. Vancouver is run by big businesses of Citizens in New Westminster rallied to the port “(that) are soley engaged in the oppose the proposal because – guess benefit of those businesses.” what? – they didn’t want to be covered in The city has just delivered a report coal dust when the wind blows to the port authority (see page the wrong way. Fraser Surrey one) detailing its opposition to Burnaby NOW Docks has prepared, naturally, expanding petroleum exports. a comprehensive plan to keep Corrigan will no doubt down the dust. But, as anyone knows, be painted as an anti-economy leftist dust has a way of moving, despite our for the city’s position. But he is dead best attempts to control it. In a townhall on with his appraisal and criticism of
forum New West citizens soon discovered that appealing to the port authority to deny the land use was a bit like asking the fox to take care of the chickens. The port authority is a member of the Coal Association of Canada and has, despite a website filled with “community consultation” platitudes, not even held one public hearing on the proposal – they’ve left it to Fraser Surrey Docks to do that. At the New West townhall meeting on May 30 audience members were baffled that no single provincial government
department or government authority of any kind seemed to be in charge of the process and the port authority. It appeared like the coal proposal was a done deal. Although a representative from Fraser Health said he wanted a “comprehensive health impact assessment undertaken for this project” – we suspect such assessment will, like the plan to contain the dust, support it. Oh, and the number of jobs created in this massive, environmentally-backward project – 50. Yes, 50.
Another reason to distrust journalists EDITOR’S LETTER Pat Tracy
am ashamed to admit it – but as the Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin, expense scandal story simmers on social media, and fills newspaper pages – I have gained a new appreciation for good cops who feel tarnished by bad cops. Not so long ago, after writing a particularly vociferous editorial lambasting bad cops, and the system that protects them much too long, a police officer called me and berated me for besmirching every cop just by virtue of highlighting one bad cop’s misdeeds. He was very angry – so it was hard to get a word in – but when my moment came to defend myself, I reminded him that I had made it clear at the end of the editorial that good cops clearly outnumber bad ones, and the good ones, are often unsung heros. It did not mollify him. I know that journalists, like cops, were once held in some esteem. A recent survey found that we, like police officers, are now plummeting faster than Lululemon shares on the respect meter. We are not quite down there with used car salesmen, but
it won’t be long, given the pace of our decline. I’m not sure why this is, exactly. People may be fed up with reporters swooping like vultures into tragic news scenes, pretending to be empathetic and deeply moved by the plight of the victims – while waving the cameras in closer and elbowing out other reporters. They may be tired of pious journalists lecturing everybody else on everything. They may think that journalists are paid to prop up businesses that are owned by rich folks who own other things – sometimes even their own newspapers. They may simply be less trusting of anything that looks like it’s trying to sell them something. The glut of bloggers who call themselves citizen journalists but tailor their columns to curry favour with realtors, or roofing companies, or kids’ stores, have surely muddied the waters. In any case – Duffy and Wallin – certainly don’t help. Cheating – and cheating taxpayers out of their hard-earned money – seems particularly offensive coming from people who were journalists. We’re the ones who are supposed to be making sure that others aren’t squandering taxpayer money, or defrauding taxpayers. Or at least exposing such situations so that citizens can raise a stink and exert some righteous democratic vengeance. I was attracted to journalism

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Community concerned about Shin Dear Editor:
Re: Jane Shin speaks, Burnaby NOW, May 24. As a Canadian of Korean origin and as someone who takes pride in my Korean heritage, I am truly embarrassed and deeply troubled by the manner in which Jane Shin has become the MLA in BurnabyLougheed and the first Korean-Canadian MLA. I, along with a good number of local Koreans, are of the view that many of Jane’s representations and actions before, during and after the election were unethically misleading and gravely dismissive of the rights of the voters; in short, serious shortcomings for someone set to represent the voice of a community.

After resorting to a disappearing act during the election after being called out on her misrepresentations, Jane now downplays the controversy about her educational and professional credentials to, “there sort of was a translation mistake.” I ask, where is the translation mistake when Jane, fluent in Korean, was misrepresenting her educational and professional credentials in Korean, implying she had obtained her undergraduate and medical degrees from UBC and that she had practised medicine, when in reality neither was true. Where is the translation mistake when Jane described herself as a “doctor,” playing up her “doctor” title by using words in Korean (and in Shin Page 7

Chinese) connotating a practising physician (or someone who could readily practice), when in reality she had never practiced nor is licensed to practice anywhere. We all know that majoring in accounting in one’s undergraduate degree is not the same as calling oneself a certified accountant and having a law degree does not entitle you to call yourself a lawyer. Yet, what Jane did was precisely that. Many local Koreans are dumbfounded and outraged that Jane blames the local Korean community for much of her controversy for having “up-sold” her credentials; the very same community she misled while actively seeking their electoral and financial support to advance her political aspiration. Jane was not only unethical in misrepresenting her credentials but also was gravely dismissive of the rights of the voters and her supporters, including the local Korean community, to know and demand truth from her. Many local Koreans now believe the Canadian electoral system and the voters were also played by Jane with her carefully crafted, misleading words and actions and by her strategic disappearing act during the election campaign; she was opportunistic by capitalizing on the NDP’s momentum in her riding and the misguided and misinformed support from many local Koreans. I genuinely hope the good residents of Burnaby-Lougheed will have the courage to call for, and see through, Jane’s resignation and allow an opportunity for an honest candidate to represent the collective voice of the community. At minimum, such a candidate should be honest and clear about their credentials, demonstrate respect for the rights of the voters by being truthful and accessible even in times of difficulty, and have the courage to truly own up to their own mistakes, especially a “huge mistake” to put in mild terms, and to take full responsibility in such circumstances, not with words but with actions, including a resignation – none of which are qualities Jane appears to possess.

The campaign is finished Dear Editor:
This week the premier had another campaign event – I mean a government announcement of the incoming cabinet, which will presumably include her after the upcoming by-election. Most heads of government choose to announce their cabinet choices in the halls of parliament or the legislature, but not Premier Clark, she of the permanent campaign. Instead we were treated to a campaign rally at Canada Place, with each announced minister being used as a prop for at least one governing
June 2 1&
promise by the premier. Perhaps she is unaware of this, but the campaign is over and now it’s time to attend to the sober work of governing; if someone could inform the premier of this, it would be most welcome. What is most disappointing about the cabinet decisions is the lack of influence the communities north of the Fraser River will have. Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam and Maple Ridge combined have zero members of cabinet; how are our issues supposed to be discussed when this premier has already decided not to include our voice at cabinet? Our communities deserve to be heard, not punished because we didn’t support the Liberals as strongly as other regions of the province.

Politics depressing for all
Re: Let Grade 12 students vote, Burnaby NOW, May 31. Much thought has been given and ink spilled to this issue, including the possibility of lowering the voting age to include high school seniors. I have no particular issue with lowering the age limit, but I wonder – if the 19- to 25-year-olds are considered notorious for their absence at the polls then why would 18-year-olds be any different? Are modern youth cynical, sceptical or just confused? We can all be forgiven for either of the above. Adrian Dix took the apparent high road of not campaigning using attack advertising. He has, and will, continue to suffer the consequences for a long time. I think low turnout has other causes as well. His party failed to sufficiently differentiate its policies from those of the Liberals. Given that, some voters might think: “there is not much difference, why bother?” Other voters might follow the old saying: “better the devil you know than the one you don’t.” Any combination of those positions could have led to our current situation. However, I think that there is something much more sinister happening to our electoral process. Ujjal Dosanjh was an NDP premier in Victoria and a Liberal MP in Ottawa. Mike Harcourt was a Liberal supporter in the John Turner-era and then an NDP premier. Bob Rae was a left NDPer in the ’70s, then a mainstream NDP premier in Ontario, then an interim Liberal leader in Ottawa. Thomas Mulcair was a minister in the Quebec Liberal government during Jean Charest’s era. Mr. Charest was deputy prime minister as a Progressive Conservative and then the leader of that party for five years until leaving and becoming the leader of the Quebec Liberal party. Our current prime minister, the Right Honourable Steven Harper is a special case. He was in the Reform Party, then Voters Page 8

MORE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Voters can’t tell difference continued from page 7
the Canadian Alliance Party, and now the Conservative Party. He was found to be in contempt of Parliament, and yet was re-elected partly on the strength of the advertising attack against Michael Ignatieff. Mr. Harper, having belonged to the Reform, Canadian Alliance, and now the Conservative parties, all of which have supported Senate reform, then appointed Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau to the Senate. Is he expanding the horizons of his contempt to the senate? There is a growing perception that our politicians will say and do whatever is necessary to get elected, and then if in a majority, they will then do whatever they want – the HST and the sale (999-year lease) of B.C. Rail come to mind. If our politicians do not have any underlying principles and can jump back and forth between parties of apparently conflicting ideologies then who can wonder why our unemployed and underemployed youth cannot relate to $150,000per-year parliamentarians with million dollar pensions? For that matter, it seems to be difficult for a large segment of the voting public. Hence the poor voter turnout. Paul Bjarnason, Burnaby
Bitumen problems ignored
On the one hand, federal Natural Resources Minister, and tar sands booster, Joe Oliver says there is an urgent need for more pipelines to accommodate higher bitumen production. Meanwhile, Alberta’s energy regulator reports tar sands producers have not only failed to meet a two-year-old commitment
to reduce the toxicity of the bitumen tailings ponds, but in fact have continued to add to the volume of the ponds. Is something wrong with this picture? Bill Brassington, Burnaby
Shin interview revealing Dear Editor:
I would like to draw the attention of Burnaby NOW readers to some very revealing statements made by Jane Shin more than a month ago, on April 25, while she was being interviewed by Global B.C.’s Squire Barnes on BC 1, Global’s 24-hour B.C. news channel. After recalling this interview, I went online and watched it again. I was shocked by what I saw and heard: Shin clearly misrepresents herself in this interview and misleads Barnes and the viewing audience about her medical practitioner status in B.C. The thrust and tone of Squire Barnes’ questions to Jane Shin clearly indicate he was under the impression Shin is a practicing physician here in B.C. But not once during the interview did Shin make any serious effort to clarify the nature of her medical status in B.C., despite repeated references by Squire Barnes to her being a doctor in B.C. If she were being honest, Shin would have clarified immediately with Squire Barnes that although she has a medical degree (from the Caribbean) she is not, in fact, a practising physician here in B.C., nor licensed to practise in B.C., and has never practised medicine in this province. However, Shin allowed each opportunity to clarify this question pass without even flinching, which is shockingly inconsistent with her current explanation based on unintended errors and miscommunications. Randy Rinaldo, Burnaby
Tracy: ‘I saw journalism as a truly noble calling’ continued from page 6
because it was part of a quest for truth, honesty, and justice. I was first inspired by Watergate and Ben Bradlee and Bob Woodward, tempered by Mary Tyler Moore and Lou Asner. I believe we are supposed to expose wrongdoing – not ignore it, disguise it and certainly not do it. Yes, embarrassing to say, but I saw journalism as a truly noble calling. Not a way to make loads of money, gain prestige, or even rub shoulders with the rich and famous. But a way to give those who did not have a voice at least a glimmer of hope that someone gave a rat’s ass. And naïvely, I thought that most of my journalism contemporaries were driven by the same motives. And, yes, I realize that some certainly didn’t get into journalism to expose wrongdoing. Some wanted to write novels, others wanted to travel, still others wanted to see their own name in print – albeit only in a front page byline. Was Duffy once driven by the idealistic motives? Did he harbour a child’s dream of being with the ‘in’ crowd? Did he fight for the good stories only so he could gain
access to higher opportunities for himself? Did he realize mid-career that the fight to expose wrongdoing was folly – that it was a losing proposition and he’d be better off hitching his star to political fortunes? Or was he just a terrible money manager who got himself into a pickle and decided that, given how much money was flowing through Senate coffers, nobody would really miss $90,000? No matter the reason, it is disturbing. Basic journalistic ethics demand that journalists do not take gifts from anybody. It doesn’t mean that we can be bought with a simple ham sandwich but it does mean that there can be no misunderstandings. And, no, I don’t think Duffy is sitting in some airport lounge worrying that he let little naïve idealistic Pat Tracy down. But I do hope that he feels some shame for letting his profession down.

Zanottos: Family rolled out the welcome mat for film crew continued from page 1
Guiliana, for example, works in a tanning salon and drives an H1 Hummer with 28-inch wheels while her brother Mareno refuses to ride with her, preferring to ride his bicycle because he is an ardent environmentalist studying for his masters at SFU. Tina is a pop singer, who wrote and performed the Italian version of the Titanic movie theme song, My Heart Will Go On, in the late ’90s and is now helping to manage her youngest daughter Tatiana’s bur-
geoning singing career. Franco, meanwhile, owns his own commercial painting company and is working towards his third degree black belt in karate. Despite their varied interests and passions, the one thing the whole family can agree on is the value of good food, good conversation and family time. “Our schedules have always revolved around dinner time at six,” said Tina, who loves to cook. “Everybody comes home.

The Dolphin can operate until the rezoning application passes third reading and final adoption.
Council approved $835,000 for sanitary and capital improvements at its last Monday meeting. The water utility will receive $535,000 and the sanitary sewer utility is getting $300,000 for the city’s ongoing improvements to existing pump stations, pressure reducing stations

your day; you get to talk about what’s been bugging you, what’s been great. You laugh, you share, you fight, but it gives you that bonding time when you know what’s going on in each others’ lives.” The pilot was shot during a two-week period in February, and Wasef said it was easier than expected because of how welcoming the Zanottos were towards the crew. “They’re very, very, very warm,” he said. “They’re not the kind of family that sort of is looking down on us like, ‘You guys are
crew.’ It was just a very warm environment.” The show will be called La Famiglia and will follow the daily lives of each of the family members, as well as their conversations during mealtimes. When the idea was brought forward to the Zanottos, they were not all immediately receptive, but soon warmed to it. “I’ve never done anything in the film industry and I was kind of nervous to talk on camera,” said Franco. “But you know what, I felt comfortable after a couple minutes. The
guys that were producing it, they were excellent. They made you feel really comfortable, and you know what, I felt really good. And actually, after that, I was looking forward to it.” Guiliana said her family hopes that what comes across on screen is how close her family is and how important the “family first” element is to the overall theme of the show. However, what happens during the series of half-hour episodes remains to be seen, since this will be indeed an unscripted series, Guiliana noted.
“It’s not going to be staged, and what you see is what you get,” she said. “That was really important to us. We don’t want to be something we’re not. We want you to know who we are for who we are, and you either like us or you don’t.” Life Studios has pitched the trailer to various networks and is “very close” to being picked up by a major U.S. and Canadian network, according to Wasef. Once a contract is signed, the show will resume shooting in September and be aired next spring, he said.

Village concept proposed for Sixth Street Stefania Seccia staff reporter
The proposed Sixth Street Community Plan got thumbs up from residents and businesses, and on Monday night Burnaby council endorsed it. The city’s plan is to revitalize Sixth Street with a street-oriented, mixed-use urban village development concept including four components: the village street, the neighbourhood commercial hub, the multiple-family district and the commercial gateway. “The advancement of this community plan will serve to revitalize the subject Edmonds and Sixth Street areas, encourage pedestrian and transit-oriented development, provide a broad range of commercial services to local residents, and enable

Canada – the recreational area is unparalleled, that the ecology in that area is incredibly important to our communities, that it also has residential and other uses that are important to the overall livability in the Lower Mainland.” The port’s draft landuse plan is being prepared with the assistance of local municipalities, and Burnaby has detailed its vision for the harbours to stay consistent with council’s policies and direction, according to the report. “It isn’t a one-sided story and unfortunately Port Metro Vancouver, which is run by the big businesses, (is) not run by the government anymore, it’s run by big businesses of the port (that) are solely engaged in the benefit of those businesses,” Corrigan said. “We’re left to fight for those other issues, for the ecology, for the residential uses, for the recreational uses. “We’re left to be the responsible ones saying these issues are just as important to our citizens and need to be recognized.” Corrigan said it’s about maintaining a balance between jobs, health and
recreation. “Like in all things, balance needs to be achieved,” Corrigan said. “I hope that Port (Metro) Vancouver listens to this and I hope that reports like this are coming from each municipality across the Lower Mainland. Perhaps they will gather at Port Metro Vancouver where each of us is able to say that we have aspirations for the port that include jobs, and the movement of goods, but also includes the ecological health of the inlet and the river and include the recreational uses.” The 22-page report outlines the city’s policies to accommodate a mixture of port industrial and recreational uses. One of the port’s plans is to “identify options to increase terminal capacity as required,” according to the report. Coun. Sav Dhaliwal thanked staff for the comprehensive report that reviewed both the Burrard Inlet and the Fraser River. “The position of the city is very reasonable on all these points raised,” he said. “These are very reasonable features of our OCP, our plan and even our growth strategies and everything’s that’s being asked for is in line with what we have worked for, for many, many
years … we’re not asking a whole lot.” Dhaliwal said the port authority should be a more conciliatory corporate citizen when working with their report. “To say, yes we are already meeting them halfway, proposing a good solution so the water access continues to the public for future generations, as well as accommodate what already exists,” he said. “This to me seems like something that we would like to get feedback from them. I would be very disappointed if the board did not at least give us a good chance to talk about these points.” Dhaliwal said he hopes the port carefully considers the city’s report. “One of the things the staff has pointed to very clearly is the port has previously set to expand the terminal, particularly for shipping of oil, perhaps, Kinder Morgan comes to mind, and the report (states) we have already stated our position in opposition to that. And before they carry on with the expansion of that, I think (discussions) should take place.” The committee’s report can be viewed online at www.burnaby.ca. email@example.com
“This proposed four storey form on Edmonds Street would terrace down to a townhouse form along Wedgewood Street of between two-to-three storeys to allow for an appropriate residential to residential relationship across Wedgewood,” Pelletier states in the report. Another three respondents were concerned about a spike in traffic because of the planned development, but city staff said the road network, transit provisions and other alternative modes of travel will support the area. Burnaby councillors spoke in support of the plan. Coun. Dan Johnston noted the plans are not grandiose in size, but a nice fit in the community. firstname.lastname@example.org

Volunteering to Build Community by Kelina Kwan Since the winter of 2011, I have introduced 17 organizations and their volunteers to readers of the Burnaby Now through this series of monthly articles.This month, I’d like to introduce you to the organization that actually makes this possible – Volunteer Burnaby. For almost 40 years, Volunteer Burnaby has functioned as a key resource for volunteer involvement in Burnaby/New Westminster and the surrounding region.The organization’s focus is on creating caring communities. “We involve individuals in rewarding opportunities close to their heart, inspiring them to contribute their time, energy, and talents. In this way, we mobilize volunteers and we help local community organizations deliver their vital programs and services,”
says Frieda Robertson, Ofﬁce Administrator and Manager of Member Services at Volunteer Burnaby.This small but vibrant agency helps organizations connect people with volunteer opportunities.“We drive positive change in the community by leading, inspiring, and empowering people and organizations to embrace the value of volunteerism in shaping our communities.”“By engaging people in local causes, we facilitate a sense of meaning, fulﬁllment, enjoyment, personal growth and a sense of belonging within the community. In doing so, we help build capacity for local volunteering and connect people with a sense of social responsibility, while celebrating and cultivating strong, healthy, inclusive, and vibrant

communities.” The facilitation of this series of monthly articles is a case in point. Through these articles, Volunteer Burnaby helps introduce various organizations in Burnaby to people in their community, and in the process, helps promote volunteer opportunities within these organizations. Volunteer Burnaby also organizes and participates in various volunteer festivals , volunteer recognition events, and engages media to increase awareness of community volunteering and volunteerism.Their online database of volunteer opportunities connects agencies with volunteers, and they also respond to telephone inquiries and walk-ins to customize volunteer opportunity searches to individual’s interests. Volunteer Burnaby is also truly inclusive.Their Special Needs Access Program (SNAP) assists people with developmental disabilities that want to volunteer as part of the community inclusion experience. According to Volunteer Burnaby’s recent annual report, SNAP has helped more than 227 individuals in their search for community participation opportunities. Today, participants volunteer in
diverse positions, with various organizations ranging from clerical to service. To ensure that volunteerism continues in the community and into the future, Volunteer Burnaby actively engages youth by putting together volunteer opportunities with our member agencies who wish to develop youth volunteer positions.“We hosted a UBC student project to explore our role in the Career and Work Experience Programs with Burnaby high schools resulting in recommendations and strategies to make volunteer opportunities more accessible to high schools students.” But Volunteer Burnaby’s work goes deeper than just connecting volunteers with organizations. One of their key priorities is to increase capacity by increasing membership knowledge based on volunteerism and volunteer sector information.They deliver quality workshops and leadership development. and this year,“Volunteer Burnaby has partnered with Volunteer Victoria to provide on-line learning opportunities.We will extend this strategy to include other learning tools such as webinars and elearning” Robertson says. “Recently, Burnaby City Council
approved a work plan for the implementation of Phase 1 of the Burnaby Social Sustainability Strategy.This Phase focuses on 44 of the 127 actions in the Strategy and is expected to unfold over the next ﬁve years or so. Volunteer Burnaby has been identiﬁed as one of the possible partners to take the lead in helping non-proﬁt organizations identify their needs” Robertson says.Volunteer Burnaby has proven its vital role in building community through their work with volunteers. Statistics from the 2010 Canadian Survey on Volunteering show that 47 per cent of Canadians volunteer.“While that statistic is signiﬁcant, it is still less than 50 per cent.You can help us raise the bar,” Robertson says and they truly believe thatat Volunteer Burnaby. You too can be a “builder of community” - for more information on how to get involved in your community with various initiatives and organizations, please contact Volunteer Burnaby at 604.294.5533 or visit their website at www. volunteerburnaby.ca.

ZZ Ward reveals how she got her nickname The Burnaby NOW recently chatted with singer ZZ Ward about her career and upcoming performance at this summer’s Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival. Q: Where are you from? A: I was born in Pennsylvania, and I grew up in Roseburg, Oregon. It was a farm lot, so we didn’t have any animals, but we had a lot of property, and it was in the middle of nowhere. Q: How did you become a musician? A: I got into music through listening to the blues a lot and that kind of started my interest in music. And then I started listening to a lot of hip hop as well, a lot of Nas and Jay ON MY BEAT Z, and I always Marelle Reid liked to sing. Q: What does ZZ stand for? A: My name is Zsuzsanna, and there’s two z’s in my name, and obviously that’s a tongue-twister; a lot of people couldn’t say it, so ZZ became my nickname. Q: How would you describe your style of music? A: I’d say it’s back porch blues meets hip hop. Q: How does that fit into the Los Angeles music scene? A: I’m not in L.A. a lot, to be honest; I’m on the road a lot. But, I mean, I’ve definitely found some great people to work with in L.A. that are in hip hop like Nephew, who’s produced over half my record. He’s worked with 50 Cent, a lot of people, and he’s super talented and just a wonderful person. Q: 2012 was a pretty big year for you. Can you tell me about that? A: I put my record out in October, and even before that, I started touring, so it’s been a big year of touring and going out into the world and just getting fans and meeting fans and seeing how my music has impacted people around the nation and obviously in other countries, too. It’s been a really amazing year. Q: Growing up, did you expect to find this kind of success as an artist? A: Yeah, I did, actually. I always wanted to be an artist. I can’t say I knew it, because I can’t say I know what’s going to happen in my life, but I wanted it. I always wanted everything to happen that’s happening right now in my life. And that’s something I would tell other people, you know, that might be inspired by me; it’s like, if you want

Open doors to refugees: council Canadian Council for Refugees hosts national conference in Burnaby Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Canada needs to better support refugees – that was the key message coming from the Canadian Council for Refugees, which held a national conference in Burnaby recently. “We need to continue and reopen the doors and be proud to protect refugees,” said Loly Rico, the council’s president. The three-day conference was held at the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown, from May 30 to June 1, to share best practices and advice on how to create secure and welcoming communities for refugees. The majority of attendees were settlement workers, lawyers and community agency representatives, mostly from the Lower Mainland but also from across Canada. Rico said the number of refugees Canada takes in has declined, meanwhile changes to Canadian immigration law allow for less access to protection. “We need to change the narrative. We need to mobilize Canadian opinion in the way the government can take responsibility to protect refu-

Students receive dental care CLASS ACT
tudents from Stride Avenue and Maywood community schools were recently treated to free dental care, courtesy of Vancouver Community College. On May 22, the Burnaby students travelled to the college’s Vancouver campus for the annual event. The college, Chevron Canada, Sunstar and the Vancouver Trolley Company sponsored the event, which includes free dental assessments, cleaning and fissure sealants for elementary school children.
Local students off to Ivy League
Four Burnaby North students graduating this year are off to prestigious Ivy League schools. Grace Xiao and Michelle Lin are heading
to Harvard to study general sciences and biological sciences respectively, while Shirley Fu (who will study computer science) and Blair Wang (specializing in operations research and financial engineering) are planning to study at Princeton. “We are very proud of the students. We are very confident they will be successful in whichever field they chose to pursue,” said Vincent Chan, department head of the Burnaby North’s advanced placement program. Chan attributed the students’ success to a combination of academic achievement, excellent scores on the American SAT exams, extra curricular activities and a lot of advanced placements courses. The advanced placement program allows students to take universitylevel courses before they graduate from high school, so they get a head start for post-secondary. According to Chan, Burnaby North has had students accepted to Ivy League schools before, but never four in one year. “I think it’s a tribute to
the dedication and commitment of our students. The students have a lot of determination and they work really hard. We’re very glad to be able to offer such a wide breadth of advanced placement courses for them,” he said. Ivy League schools really look at advanced placement courses, he added.
100 years at Second Street
It’s still a ways off, but organizing efforts are already underway for Second Street Community School’s 100th birthday. The celebration is set for Sept. 26 and 27, at 4 p.m. on the school grounds, at 7502 Second St. Organizers are creating an open house format, and everyone is invited. “Come and take a walk down memory lane, connect with classmates, staff and community members past and present as we celebrate the past 100 years at Second Street Community School,” said Vicky Malito, community school coordinator for Second Street. The first day will be for current students and fami-
lies, and the second day for former staff and students and their families. The gym will include some displays, showing old pictures through the decades, and there will be a hotdog barbecue on both days. Volunteer organizers are also collecting class photos from the 1920s to present. If you have a class picture from Second Street, email it to 110yearsatsec firstname.lastname@example.org. People are also encouraged to share stories about the school using the same email address. In fall, organizers will also be looking for school artifacts for the displays. If you have an old report card, lunch box or something that symbolizes that era, save it for September. Items will be returned after the celebration. For more information on the centennial, go to www.100yearsatsecondstr eet.com.

SFU offers guidelines for medical tourists MEDICAL FILE Marelle Reid
or Canadians considering a trip overseas for surgery or other medical care, there are guidelines now available from Simon Fraser University researchers to help make informed decisions. SFU’s Medical Tourism Research Group recently developed a tool that helps to answer questions related to ethical concerns about the health and safety risks associated with outof-country health care. Created by SFU ethicist Jeremy Snyder, with support from a Canadian Institutes of Health Research grant, the onepage information sheet outlines several key points to consider, including unforeseen costs, procedure risks, the potential for contracting diseases and patient rights. It also points to the potentially negative impacts medical tourism could have on local communities where surgeries or health-care is offered. Snyder is hoping to distribute the guideline across Canada. For more information, including a list of medical tourism research involving several popular travel destinations, go to www. sfu.ca/medicaltourism/ resources/html.
Summer’s almost here, and with it, longer, sun-
nier days spent outdoors. While this is a great benefit to boosting people’s moods and stocking up on vitamin D3, there are dangers in getting too much sun exposure as well, even on cloudy days, according to Fraser Health. “Most people think that as long as they aren’t getting a sun burn, they aren’t damaging their skin, but even if your skin is tanning and not burning, daily exposure to sunlight adds up and over time can cause skin damage and even skin cancer,” said Paul Van Buynder, chief medical health officer with Fraser Health, in a press release. “A tan is visible proof that your skin has been damaged from ultraviolet radiation.” Skin cancer may be the most serious consequence of too much sun, though it’s not the only harmful effect. Too much sun can cause premature wrinkling, spotting and aging of the skin, as well as eye diseases and weakening of the body’s ability to fight off infections, illness and disease. Children are especially at risk of developing health problems later in life if they experience sunburn. To avoid harmful UV rays, Fraser Health recommends seeking shade between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. when the sun is strongest, wearing longsleeved shirts and pants as well as a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses, and applying sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or more. Sunscreen should be applied 20 minutes before, and again after, sweating or swimming. For more sun safety tips

Kids across the country will soon have more encouragement to stay off the couch during afterschool hours. The Public Health Agency of Canada recently announced a $1 million funding initiative aimed at supporting after-school programs that encourage Canadian youth to get moving. Only seven per cent of Canadian kids get enough physical activity on a daily basis, according to Physical and Health Education Canada, one of the partners developing the project. Specifically, the project – created by the Canadian Active After School Partnership – will focus on reducing community barriers to active after-school programs; supporting mental health through active after-school programs; engaging home and family to enhance access to after-school programs and; engaging aboriginal children and youth in active after-school programs. Pilot projects have been launched across Canada in several communities, targeting Aboriginal Peoples, those with a disability, girls and young women. The project has also included a national survey of parents and guardians to gather data online from across the country. The project, supported through the Public Health Agency of Canada’s Healthy Living Fund, will be awarded to the various participating organizations over a two-year period.

Expanding culinary knowledge on budget ON COOKING Chef Dez
conomic focus is in the news more than ever these days, and everyone seems like they’re searching for ways to tighten their purse strings. There are ways however, to expand your knowledge in the culinary world without affecting your personal/family grocery budget. Let’s face it, we all need to eat food to stay alive, and adding some variety to our home meals is a way to make “eating in” more exciting. How many times has the normal trip to the grocery supermarket resulted in bringing home the same old products that you always buy, for your never changing home menu? This can very easily be changed without any drastic effect on your monthly food budget. Here’s what I challenge you to do: every week, two weeks, or month, I want you to buy just one product you would never normally buy. This could be a produce item, a spice, an herb, or something down the imported food aisle. Take your blinders off, step outside your habitual boundaries, and be receptive to all the wonderful
products we have available at our finger tips. No matter where you live, shopping today has a greater abundance of selection than ever before. The other great resource we have access to, whether it’s at home, work or the local libraries, is the internet. This will allow you to answer questions about the certain product that you have purchased that you may know nothing about. What do I do with it? How do I prepare it? How is it normally served? How is it best stored? You and your family are going to be eating food anyway, and chances are you will continue to do so the rest of your life. What harm will it be then to spend, for example, $2 or $3 per month on one product you normally wouldn’t purchase? Continue to do this for a year, while researching and educating yourself on each product and you will have expanded your culinary knowledge by 12 items. This will add variety to your home menu forever and at the same time build your culinary knowledge. Many cities and towns also have gourmet food stores. Make it a habit to talk to these people, tap into their expertise, and make your weekly or monthly one-product purchase there instead of, or alternating with, your regular grocery store. If you have even more room in your monthly budget, take a cooking

class once per month instead of dining out. I know my restaurant friends will dislike me saying so, but the return on your investment in a cooking class is far greater than just a full stomach from one “dining out” visit. As the old saying goes, “give a person a fish and you will feed them for a day; teach them to fish and you feed them for life.” Dear Chef Dez: I like onions and someone suggested trying shallots. What is the difference between onions and shallots and why are shallots are so much more expensive? Harry N, Sask. Dear Harry: Shallots are a relative of the onion and are basically milder and sweeter than regular cooking onions, and thus tend not to overpower other flavours. They are so expensive mainly because of supply and demand. In my hometown, onions are usually priced at about 60 to 75 cents per pound, while shallots are $3 per pound. If there was a gradual increase in the demand of shallots, the cultivation of these root vegetables would be increased and the price would eventually start falling. I am not a gardener by any means, but from what I understand shallots can be successfully produced wherever onions are grown.

Think before opening windows As temperatures rise this summer, so will the risk of young children falling from balconies or open windows. Last year, at least 29 children in B.C. were taken to hospital as a result of falling out of windows, and “several” have already been injured this spring, according to a press release from the Fraser Health Authority. “It’s hard enough to tell a parent that their child has suffered severe injuries that require extensive surgery and will likely result in long-term effects,” said Dr. Iain MacPhail, program medical director of trauma for Fraser Health, in the release. “This becomes especially heartbreaking when it is the result of an avoidable accident like falling through a window or from a balcony.” To prevent injuries of this kind, Fraser Health and the B.C. Ambulance Service are reminding parents of young children to think twice before opening windows in their homes this summer. With support from Partners Promoting Window and Balcony Safety, the two
organizations have launched a campaign together to offer free decals at daycares and public health units within the Fraser Health region. The decals are meant to remind parents and caregivers that window screens do not offer adequate protection against a fall and should never be relied on as a safety measure. Other safety tips to prevent falls include: talking to children about window and balcony safety; moving furniture and planters away from windows and balcony edges to discourage children from climbing, especially cribs and beds; installing and maintaining window safety devices – ensure there is a safe release option in case of a house fire; keeping windows open no more than 10 centimetres – children can fit through a space as small as 12 cm; never leaving children unattended on balconies or in higher floor rooms with open windows.

In 2011, Ford introduced an all-new Explorer. This new SUV was truly all-new as it didn’t just feature new bodywork or an updated powertrain. Instead, Ford based the new vehicle on the Taurus’ unit body platform and created a much more sophisticated vehicle – something that was not possible with the predecessor, with its design based on a body-onframe platform. Now with a more rigid body, the squeaks and rattles commonly found in truckbased SUVs are gone. As a result, the Explorer offers a more refined on-road ride without losing any of its offroad capabilities. For 2013, Ford brings a Sport model to the Explorer range to add a “zest” to the lineup. In keeping with Ford’s radical redesign philosophy, the Sport badge adds more than just cosmetic changes.
Bill Gubing, chief engineer for Ford’s Taurus and Police Interceptor line-up, is

also the lead engineer for the Explorer line. This is fitting, since these vehicles share the same structure – lessons learned with one are easily shared with the group. When Ford released the redesigned Explorer, the choice of a 290-hp V6 or a fuel efficient turbocharged 2.0L I4 was sufficient for most of its customers. However, thanks to the improved build and design quality they piqued the interest of buyers of more prestigious brands such as Lexus Contributed/burnaby now and Land Rover.

Street parking tussles require negotiation Ray & Tom Magliozzi
Dear Tom and Ray: My question regards parking etiquette. Recently, a neighbour has been parking his car in front of our house on a daily/nightly basis. From what I can gather, this neighbour lives in a “group house” of about four individuals. Their driveway fits only two cars, and there’s room for only one at the curb in front of the house. So, this neighbour has adopted my curb as his car’s new home. While I am aware that it’s technically a “public” street, this is, in my opinion, very rude – but more importantly, it’s inconvenient. I have a single-lane driveway for both my car and my wife’s car. I often travel to the airport and
ly” a public street, Duane. It IS a public street. So you have no right to claim it as private property. TOM: Can you ask your neighbour, as a favour, to leave that spot open for you when possible? Sure. And if you have a neighbourly relationship, and he has other reasonable options, he’ll probably accommodate you. But you’ve started off the negotiations on the wrong foot by accusing him of behaving badly. RAY: When someone starts a conversation with you by saying, “Hey, jerk!” how open are you to helping the guy? TOM: Now, we know, you say you started off politely. But you may think you’re being more polite than you are. Saying “I don’t do this rude thing to you, yet you do it to me” puts the other guy on the defensive. And since he has the law on his side, you’ve given up your most potent weapon: an appeal
to his good nature and benevolence. RAY: So here’s what I’d do: Start over. Start by getting to know your neighbours. Nothing helps resolve a situation like seeing each other as actual human beings rather than “some jerk in a group house” or “some grouchy old guy who thinks he owns the street.” Learn your neighbours’ names, and find out what they do. You even might invite them over for a meal. TOM: And poison them. RAY: Don’t listen to my brother. He’s been hated in
every neighbourhood he’s ever lived in. Once you have some kind of basic relationship established, then you’ll be in a position to ask for a favour. TOM: And here’s the secret: Most people like doing favours for other people. They just don’t like being forced to accommodate other people. So ask really nicely. Explain that you know he has every right to park anywhere on the street. But say that because of your work and family situation, it really helps you a lot if you can park in front of your

house, and you’re wondering if he might do you a favour and leave that space open whenever it’s not inconvenient for him. RAY: And ask him if there’s anything you can do for him in return. It’s possible this relationship has been poisoned, and you’re just going to have to live with the lifeshortening effects of having a bad neighbour. But maybe you still can turn it around. TOM: Understanding your position is an important starting point in any negotiation. Good luck, Duane.

come home late at night, or have a need to travel to an early-morning meeting. So I have need to use my curb to park my car, on occasion. My car is a manual transmission, and my wife cannot drive a stick, so any movement of my car requires me to do it. As it stands, I am often forced to park down the street or around the corner from my own house. And I recently held a dinner party where my guests could not park in front of my house. We live in suburbia, not the city – everyone here has a driveway and plenty of room to park. At a minimum, it’s unsightly and annoying, and very un-neighbourly. I’ve left polite notes to this neighbour letting him know these facts, and in a recent note, I mentioned, “I don’t park my car in front of your house, so why do you park your car in front of mine?” Do you have any advice? – Duane RAY: Yeah: Start by apologizing.

Restyled: The 2013 Ford Explorer Sport has a new look inside and out, as well as an upgraded performance from its predecessors.
Explorer: Room and versatility continued from page 30
customers, the Explorer Sport offers an upgraded interior and a higher level of performance; the exterior too, was re-styled to give this SUV a different flavour. Above the cool blacked-out front grill, the Explorer shows off darkened headlight and taillight assemblies which compliment the exclusive glossy black finishes. Rounding out the package are unique 20-inch wheels.
The 2013 Explorer Sport borrows the 3.5-litre, high-output, twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 from the Taurus SHO sport sedan. This bumps horsepower to 365-hp and torque to 350 ft-lbs. The issue that arose from having 75 more horsepower over the base Explorer was how to adequately deliver that power to the road. To that end, the sport model is only available with Ford’s Terrain Management four-wheel drive system. As well, the system has been calibrated to optimise the use of power in all driving conditions. This intelligent system continuously monitors wheel slip and will dynamically shift power to the wheels that need it most. Using the consol-mounted control knob, the driver can manually adjust the power and torque settings if they encounter deep snow, sand or mud. To further differentiate the Sport model, 50 per cent of the torque can be sent to the rear wheels, whereas the maximum in other Explorer models is 40 per cent. The electric power-assisted steering rack features a new solid mounting system. This makes the Sport feel surprisingly agile for a vehicle of this size. It has a turning circle of just 12.13 metres and does so with an easy 2.7 turns of the steering wheel. The Sport also boasts improved braking performance. The 352 mm ventilated front discs are 24 mm larger and the rear brakes are also now ventilated. And while the chassis was strengthened to cope with the additional power and the suspension is tuned for a sportier feel, the ride is still quite comfortable. The overall feeling is that the Explorer Sport performs like a truly upscale SUV, with well-dampened suspension, surprisingly accurate steering feel, and morethan-adequate acceleration. Could this be the ideal “affordable” luxury SUV?
With decent power and handling in place, the designers could turn their attention to the cabin. There are illuminated Explorer badges on the front scuff plate; something that is only seen in luxury brands. Once inside, the sculpted leather seats ensure a comfortable journey. The standard heated and cooled front buckets are available in a stylish two-tone colour scheme, which is very appealing. The leather-wrapped steering wheel continues the premium feel, which also boasts a standard power tilt and telescoping. Shorter drivers will appreciate the adjustable pedals with memory feature. With the Explorer Sport, Ford designers were attempting to move the model more up-market. They successfully accomplished that. However, this shift is also reflected in the price as the Sport is almost $20,000 more than a base Explorer. The room is plentiful, front and back, and the seating is comfortable.

‘Most motionless art form’ comes to Nikkei A Kanze-style Noh – a traditional Japanese musical drama – is being shown at the Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre in Burnaby on June 28. Noh is said to be the “most motionless art form.” There will be three workshops
for kids to get to know the world of Noh, and a talk about Noh, as well as the show. The theme of the event is “Samurai’s world view,” and it is aimed at introducing Noh and Japanese art forms in an easy way for those who are less famil-
iar with them. The morning workshop, Samurai fun with upcoming star of Kanze-style, takes place from 10 to 11:30 a.m. There is also a lunch workshop about the Chi, or energy, of Noh through Aikido, which takes
place from 1 to 2:30 p.m. There is an afternoon collage workshop by a Byoubu artist from 3 to 4:30 p.m. The evening session, which includes a Noh performance, takes place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The workshops and perfor-
mance will be in Japanese, with English interpretation. For more information on the workshops and performance, email info@ojha-angel-vancouv er.com. For tickets, email info@nikkei place.org or call 604-777-7000.
Congratulations Graduating Class 2013 Good career paths for grads
New Westminster Senior Secondary
Graduates who majored in ﬁelds of study that are more recession-proof than others could have a decided advantage over students who went with other majors. Knowing which careers are still going strong and which have stalled can help college students ﬁnd a career with growth potential. • Engineers: Engineers apply the principles of science and mathematics to develop economical solutions to technical problems. Many different ﬁelds require engineers. • Accounting: Similar to other ﬁnancial careers, accounting jobs remain stable despite the uncertain economy. Where there is money to be spent,
individuals and businesses will require the services of accountants. • Nursing/medical careers: Jobs in healthcare continue to be strong as well. • Software design and development: Keeping today’s digital world running requires a staff of people constantly updating and creating new software.
• Salespeople: Sales is one of the oldest and longest- running types of occupations available. Every industry needs quality sales professionals. • Educators: The Millenial generation is just as large as the Baby Boom generation, and children will continue to ﬁll up classrooms across the world.

here are more than 20,000 homes for sale in the Lower Mainland, so making your home stand out for potential buyers is vital. It is especially true in today’s buyers’ market. First, work with your neighbourhood Realtor to get the maximum exposure for the home. But, then, also look to get both yourself and your home ready to show. Say to yourself, “This is not my home; it is a house -- a product to be sold.” Make the mental decision to “let go” of your emotions and focus on the fact that soon this house will no longer be yours. Picture yourself handing over the keys and envelopes containing appliance warranties to the new owners! Say goodbye to every room. Don’t look backwards -- look toward the future. Every seller wants her home to sell fast and bring top dollar. Well, it’s not luck that makes that happen. It’s careful planning and knowing
how to professionally spruce up your home. Here is how to prep a house and turn it into an irresistible and marketable home. Dawna Johnson, an Accredited Staging Professional Master (ASP) says the idea behind staging is to allow rooms to show themselves. “If your home is vacant, it’s soulless,” Dawna warns. “Without staging, it will probably remain on the market for many months.” She calls this practical advice for making a home sparkle: • Apply orange oil to cabinets that appear dry, which will renew their original lustre • Put out large bowls of fruit such as polished apples, bright oranges, luscious grapes • Arrange colorful and fun cookbooks on the kitchen counters Dawna believes in bringing the outdoors inside through the use of greenery and plants; in creating
clean, crisp spaces and arranging furniture with plenty of room to walk around. She says bathrooms are essential to dress well. “Bathrooms should look open, airy and delightful,” says Dawna. One of her favourite tricks is to add baskets ﬁlled with spa treatments such as small towels tied with ribbon and scented soaps: The front and back yards often need staging, too. For patios and decks, Dawna brings in plants and potted ﬂowers and makes sure decks are clean and clutter free. Your Realtor has been through many open houses and will be able to provide other tips on getting your home sale day ready.
Think clean and simple: when prepping a home for sale, get rid of clutter, clean and, if necessary, stage rooms with rented artwork, ﬂowers.

Bike path makes ‘worst’ list
It may not be a road, but it’s the first bike path to make B.C. Automobile Association’s annual Worst Roads survey. B.C. Parkway took second place on the top-10 list this year. The parkway is a 26kilometre, multi-use path that runs almost parallel to the Expo SkyTrain Line through Surrey city centre, New Westminster, South Burnaby and Vancouver. “It’s really interesting to see a bike path get nominated, which shows that cycling safety is an ongoing concern and cyclists really see bike paths as their roads,” said Ken Cousin, BCAA’s associate vice-president of Road Assist, in a media release. “The bike path making the top 10 Worst Roads list speaks volumes about the need to ensure cyclists – and pedestrians, for that matter – have safe places to commute, which helps reduce the risk of traffic collisions for all road users.” For B.C. Parkway, pedestrian and cycling safety was the main issue. “Throughout the campaign, we’ve spoken with road users and they’re telling us that safety is a great concern,” Cousin added. “Improving safety of all road users is a priority for BCAA, and if they feel poor road design and maintenance increase the risk of traffic collisions, we want to do
what we can to help make road authorities aware about those dangerous and problematic roads in our province.” TransLink has developed a conceptual design report for path improvements. “TransLink is making necessary upgrades to segments of the B.C. Parkway to improve accessibility, safety and security and to ensure it meets the needs of users and the region for years to come,” said Derek Zabel, TransLink spokesperson, in an email to the NOW. “We will address safety concerns in dark areas under the SkyTrain Guideway by realigning the B.C. Parkway route closer to the road and away from the bushes west of Nanaimo Station as well as providing improved lighting in Vancouver, New Westminster and Surrey.” TransLink is going out for tender in the next few weeks and could not provide the cost of the project, Zabel said. He also noted some minor impacts to the bike path will occur, but TransLink is “committed to providing users and stakeholders timely information about these impacts.” BCAA is providing the survey results to municipalities and the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. – Stefania Seccia

CAN YOU AFFORD A HOME OF YOUR OWN?
Layar connects you to websites, photo galleries, facebook pages, twitter, videos and much more!
This forward-thinking generation of buyers is looking for areas where they can enjoy more space without losing walkable conveniences that come with downtown living. MOSAIC’s FREMONT BLUE, for example, offers a true live, work, play neighbourhood – creating a unique community identity supported by a mix of amenities.
Signiﬁcant incentives are now providing powerful motivations, which support BC’s ﬁrst time buyers, offering them a chance to own, not rent. According to Geoff Duyker of MOSAIC, “The biggest hurdle for most ﬁrst-time homebuyers is the down payment. In response, we’re hosting MOSAIC’s 1st TIME BUYERS SALES EVENT for the month of June, where ﬁrst timers can take advantage of a $10,000 rebate and a 5% down payment. This offering truly makes owning more accessible than renting.” A visit to a MOSAIC Home Store will provide more information and insight.
TIMING IS EVERYTHING First timers can now take advantage of mortgage rates as low as 2.89%. If or when mortgage rates increase by – for example, 1% – a household making $65,000 a year will see a reduction to the mortgage amount for which they qualify by $40,000. With this anticipated reality, many will not be able to ﬁnd the home they now want if they choose to wait. These record-low mortgage rates and the corresponding purchasing power have created an opportunity to purchase a home in one of the world’s most livable regions.

She’s going to play in Graceland Tom Berridge
Grace Wardle recently signed a national letter of intent to attend Graceland University and play for the Yellow Jacket softball program under coach Bryn Braddock. Graceland University is located in Lamoni, Iowa, and is a Tier 1 academic NAIA school. “I got a really good feel for (Graceland),” said Wardle. “I’m happy to be a part of the team.” Wardle started her softball career in 2004 as a Thunderdog in the New Westminster minor softball association house league with local coaches Howard Walton and Robin Sukorokoff until she made the jump to Rep A ball in 2010. There she played two seasons with the Richmond Islanders. Last year, as Miss New Westminster 2012, Wardle juggled both ball team responsibilities and ambassador duties while travelling the Pacific Northwest on the Hyack Festival Association float and competing in recruiting ball tournaments. Last July, Wardle was selected to the only Canadian team that participated in the Adidas Futures Tournament in St. George, Utah. As starting catcher, Wardle anchored the allstar team to a ninth-place finish out of 36 American teams.

What’s in a name? Burnaby Oakeys rep catcher Grace Wardle recently signed a national letter of intent to play softball at Graceland University in Iowa in September.
“(Wardle) is without a doubt one of the hardest working players I have had the opportunity to coach. Her attitude, commitment to excellence, humility, coach-ability, and eagerness to improve daily are characteristics that only a champion possesses,” said Canada Futures head coach Joni Frei in a submit-
ted release. “I often tell my players to be the type of teammate that you would like to have, and Gracie epitomizes this concept. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to coach Gracie and have every belief that she will go on to do great things not only on the softball field but beyond the white lines.”
Despite the encouraging words, Wardle knows she will have to fight for a starting spot at the Heart of America conference school. “The good thing about (Graceland) is it has a varsity team and a junior varsity team,” Wardle added. “You are always working for your spot, which
is really good in a team atmosphere. No one gets lazy. Everyone is working their hardest.” Wardle will be busy away from the ball diamond as well. The New Westminster Secondary grad will be working towards a major Softball Page 51
Barracudas second at own Grand Prix meet Burnaby Barracuda’s Martina Blazevic and year-round swimmer Mei Stark won four individual races each at the Burnaby Barracudas annual Grand Prix summer swim meet at Central Park outdoor pool last weekend. Blazevic won all her races in Division 1, including the 50- and 100-metre freestyle, 50m breaststroke and 100m individual medley. Stark won the same four disciplines at the O category 1 level. Blazevic and Stark tied in 23rd place in the meet’s individual point rankings.
Div. 4 Barracuda Garrett Yeo was the highest-placing Burnaby swimmer, garnering 90.50 points at the two-day meet. Div. 3 Octavia Lau was also high on the list, winning the 50m butterfly and 100m free and IM, while placing second in the 50m breast. Bryan Yu was the highest placing Burnaby Mountain Manta club swimmer, placing 27th out of more than 250 swimmers at the meet. Yu won three gold in Div. 5 boys’ 50m fly and 100m free and breast. Yu was also second in the
100m backstroke. Mantas’ Harvey Lee won three Div. 4 boys’ events, including a dead-heat for first with Brian Jung of Port Coquitlam in the 200m IM. Lee also won the 50m free and fly. Barracuda Rowan Cheung was a four-event medallist, taking runner-up in the Div. 4 boys’ 50 and 100m free and 50m breast. He also came third in the 200m IM. Div. 2 girl Hannah Cui also medalled in four events for the Mantas. Cui won the 50m fly and 100m free, was second in the 100m

Giancarlo Marquez won the Div. 1 boys’ 50m free and fly, while placing second in the 100m free for the host Barracudas. Jacky Tung of the Mantas won the Div. 6 boys’ 50 and 100m fly and was second in the 50m free. Barracuda clubber Paige Catlin won the Div. 6 girls’ 100m breast and 200m IM. She was also third Swim Page 50
Burnaby dropped just its second game in 11 starts in the West Coast Junior Lacrosse League. The third-place junior B club missed its chance to move into second place in the West Coast standings following an 8-7 upset by the North Shore Indians at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Saturday. With a strong bench of 17 players, including 10 rookies, Burnaby traded goals with the North Vancouver club throughout, remaining tied 3-3 after the first and 6-6 following the second period. Scott Petursson led Burnaby with two goals and three assists. Team scoring leader Aaron Roberts also had a pair. Jr. B newcomers Evan MacDonald and Nick Petrollini also helped out with a goal and an assist, respectively. Power-play goals played a part in Burnaby’s second loss of the season. North Shore made good on three opportunities with the man advantage. “This was a setback and hard on the ego, but I am confident we will come back stronger,” said Burnaby manager Pam Johnson. “This game is proof that we cannot discount anyone.” Earlier, Burnaby defeated Langley 10-3 and then got by Port Moody by an 11-7 scoreline on June 6. Against Langley, Kevan Galte scored four unassisted goals and also set up Franco Corporale for one of his hat trick markers. In Port Moody, Burnaby keeper Cody Gilliam backstopped the win against the Thunder with 49 stops. Galte again topped the leaderboard with five goals in a seven-point outing. Lacrosse Page 51
