Graffiti: Is it art, a crime, or an addiction? Stefania Seccia

Defining graffiti:

staff reporter

In the last five years, City of Burnaby sites have been the unwilling canvas for spray-painted graffiti more than 1,100 times. Several years ago, the city launched its mayor’s task force on graffiti to combat the issue on Burnaby streets. At the last council meeting, city council discussed classifying graffiti as an art form, and whether its done due to an addiction or predilection for tagging public and private property on city streets. Coun. Pietro Anne Kang Calendino, chair of the councillor mayor’s task force on graffiti, said despite the stark number of 836 graffiti incidents on private property from June 2007 to June 2013, and 1,147 on city properties in the same period, there’s been a lot of progress in the “graffiti war.” “We have an anti-graffiti coordinator

pairing up with the RCMP with a graffiti constable, and the two make a formidable pair,” he said. “They’re doing a lot of things, going out into the community doing workshops. They’re actually going to parents’ houses of young offenders who have been either caught or indicated a problem.”

Calendino said they have been able to identify graffiti artists simply by their art style, while there’s not much they can do unless the person is caught in the act. But Calendino’s choice of words doesn’t sit well with Mayor Derek Corrigan. “I was with you up until the point you

started to refer to vandals as artists, but I can understand that there are some residuals in that regard,” he said to Calendino at the meeting Monday. “I’ve always taken the position that people who put paint on

SHOTS FIRED: ‘IT’S NOT A RANDOM EVENT’

Targeted:

Burnaby RCMP is investigating a drive-by shooting that took place Wednesday night on Canada Way.

Parts of Canada Way were closed Thursday morning as Burnaby RCMP investigated a shooting they say wasn’t random. Several shots were fired at a black BMW parked outside a Chinese restaurant on Canada Way near Sperling Avenue late Wednesday night, according to media reports. No one was in the car at the time of the shooting and no injuries have been reported. The BMW and a second vehicle, however, were both damaged by gunfire, and police are speaking with the owner of the BMW to determine the motive behind the shooting, the reports added. “It is a targeted event, and it’s not a random act,” Insp. Davy Lee told Global News. “The current situation is that we’re still interviewing all the owners of the vehicles and trying to make a determination as to what has occurred (Wednesday night).” – By Cayley Dobie, staff reporter

Students just need a chance

I

t’s a grey Friday afternoon, and Caroline Woodhouse is working the aisles at the Dollar Tree on Hastings Street. Sporting a black apron and a name tag that reads: “CAROLINE - May I help you?” she stocks shelves, helps customers find things, and rings in purchases at the cash register. Caroline, 21, has an intellectual disability and describes herself as a slow learner. A couple of years ago, when she ON MY BEAT Jennifer Moreau was attending Alpha Secondary, she participated in a school program where students work for free in exchange for experience and new skills. Caroline did her work experience at the Dollar Tree in the Heights, and after high school she enrolled in Douglas College’s basic occupational education program. The program trains students with special needs to work in three areas: food services, electronics, and retail and business services. Caroline took the retail course and is now back at the Dollar Tree, but this time, she’s earning her own wage. When asked what she gets out of it, her reply is short and simple: “Money,” she says, with a laugh. “I like working here because of the stocking and interacting with customers, and (I) get to know new people,” she adds. Caroline works alongside three students with special needs, currently in Alpha’s work experience program. They work at the Dollar Tree three times a week for an hour-and-a-half, handling merchandise, answering customer questions and organizing the shelves. They learn how to use public transit to get to work

on their own. They improve their social skills, learn to take direction from others, and leave better prepared for a more independent life. Carleena Carmichael, one of Alpha’s special education assistants, floats around the aisles, keeping an eye on the students. She helps them with their own decision-making process but never coddles them. “The goal is for them to eventually be independent in the workplace,” Carmichael says. Alpha student Khalil Walji, the tallest and chattiest of the group, tells the NOW he enjoys his experience. “I like working here during the summer time so I can go to

my cousin’s wedding,” he says with a huge grin. Khalil wants to follow in Caroline’s footsteps and sign up for the Douglas College retail course after he graduates from Alpha. The Dollar Tree isn’t the only place the students work; they also do shifts at Shoppers Drug Mart and the Brentwood mall food court. While employers get free labour out of the work experience program and the students benefit enormously, Carmichael still struggles to find companies willing to take on the kids. “Most of the time they say no,” Carmichael says. “It’s really hard getting doors shut all the

time when you are trying to help the students.” Dollar Tree manager Daniela Schroyer says she does it because she loves helping people. “How else are people able to get experience if they are not allowed to learn?” she asks. Schroyer’s advice for other businesses considering the work experience program is to have patience with the kids. “I remember when I was younger, looking for a job, and I had no experience, so that’s why I do it,” she says. “Everybody deserves a chance.” For businesses interested in hosting students for work experience, contact Alpha Secondary at 604-664-8535.

Graffiti: An addiction? new or replacement signal controller cabinets, and five murals were put up throughout Burnaby in 2013. “Burnaby is becoming more and more beautiful, and our graffiti rate is going down,” she added. From June 2007 to June 2012, graffiti went down from 179 incidents on public utilities to 44. There were 72 incidents from June 2012 to June 2013, according to a staff report. Another concern was the resurgence of acid etching on glass panels as some local craft stores have begun stocking acid etching products on shelves. The city has encouraged these stores to once again lock up their products. “The Burnaby graffiti bylaw, unlike many others, allows the city and the RCMP to do enforcement based on the ‘balance of probabilities,’” according to a staff report. “New bylaw tickets have been created to facilitate the process and will be distributed to all Burnaby uniform police officers, making it easier to issue.” In the past year, some city-funded murals were vandalized, and authorities know who the culprit is. “I hope the police catch him and prosecute him to the full extent,” Corrigan said. “It’s embarrassing to anybody who likes to think of themselves as a graffiti artist, to have someone go out and vandalize a mural that was done by someone else.”

other people’s property are vandals and not artists.” Corrigan noted people who create murals are artists and the city’s mural program has been successful. Burnaby will subsidize up to $3,500 for an approved mural in the community through its mural grant program. “We’ve been encouraging young artists to take part in art that enhances the buildings in our community, as opposed to people who are out there committing vandalism,” he added. But Coun. Anne Kang went one step further in the debate, as to whether graffiti is an art or an act of vandalism – she called it an addiction. “Vandalism is a type of addiction,” she said. “They get self-gratification from their own art. They like to admire their own art, they tag their own art. They Tweet them, they put them on Facebook. This type of addiction is serious and people don’t realize that. They think kids are just playing around and wanting to deface certain properties, but it is an addiction.” Kang said parents can check their children for signs of becoming a “graffiti vandal” if they have felt pens, spray paint or a scrapbook at home. Kang also noted that the city’s graffiti program has been successful, as 15 antigraffiti wraps were put on

Council endorses new vision for Lougheed Stefania Seccia

staff reporter

Big changes are coming to Lougheed Town Centre, and city council has endorsed the developer’s vision that will transform the mall and surrounding sites into an “urban centre.” As the Burnaby NOW previously reported, Shape Properties, the mall’s owner, has applied to transform 24.8 hectares (61.3 acres) of the “Lougheed core area” into a mixed-use, multi-purpose development that is cyclist friendly, with a transit- and pedestrian-oriented focus, to span over several phases. “(It’s) similar to Brentwood,” said Coun. Dan Johnston at the Jan. 13 meeting. “At this point, it includes a restoration, regeneration of the library in the area, also the rec centre and potential swimming pool and community police centre.” Johnston said the redevelopment plan is “impressive,” and he’s looking forward to the results of the consultation process. The core area is centred on Lougheed mall and is bounded by North Road to the east, Lougheed Highway to the south, Bartlett Court to the west and Cameron Street to the north.

One-man team

Council’s approval means staff can now work with the developer and prepare open houses, where the public can provide input. “For the citizens who attend the open houses, this has a preliminary approval with council in order to go out for open houses, but those are really conducted by the developer, who is presenting their ideas to the public,” said Mayor Derek Corrigan. “We still have to sit in judgment on these plans at some later date, and this means we must maintain, throughout this process, an open mind.” Corrigan said the city and developers will listen to what the public has to say. “Any time we take an old-fashioned mall and translating it into an urban centre, it is a very, very exciting time for everyone, and there are massive benefits for the surrounding community, not just increased property values, but the kind of amenities offered close to home.” The proposed core elements will include a variety of outdoor and indoor shopping experiences, cafes and restaurants, office space, and high-density residential components designed around public plazas, open space and tree-lined pedestrian streets. www.twitter.com/stefania_seccia

Exempt your child from the FSA Dear parents, We work hard to give your children the best education possible. We celebrate with them when they master a new concept and help them think creatively when tackling a tricky problem.

But standardized tests like the Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) in Grades 4 and 7 take away from those wonderful moments of learning. The FSAs do not count for marks, create needless stress for students, are expensive, and the much-delayed results do not actively support your child’s progress. The data is also misused to rank schools, which puts pressure on teachers to teach to the test, instead of to students’ interests and needs. That’s why teachers in Burnaby recommend you send a letter to your school principal requesting that your child be exempted from the FSA.

more time at work, or at home working, than in recent decades. No wonder. The fear of losing one’s job, or rising expectations from bosses who fear losing their job, means more work all around.

IN MY OPINION

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Thanks for coverage of PM Dear Editor:

Re: MP drops by for photo-op, Burnaby NOW, Jan. 8. Your paper of Jan. 8 was a thrill to me. Stephen Harper and James Moore were here in Burnaby and later went to Fort Langley on a historical visit in preparation for the 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation. I think it is great what James Moore is doing for Canada, and I think it is great what Stephen Harper is doing for our Canada. I was born in Edmonton in 1922, came to B.C. with my family in 1929, and I have lived in South Burnaby ever since. I have seen a lot of history. It is

a wonderful place to live and raise a family. When we came to B.C. it was at the time of the Great Depression. My dad lost his job as a builder of roads in South Burnaby. Burnaby went into receivership. Hard times for many people, but we always seemed to have someone that came along with real leadership, and in South Burnaby it was Ernest Winch of the Co-operative Commonwealth Confederation. He did wonders for Burnaby, but when it became the NDP, that’s when things went bad. Later, we had “flying Phil” Gaglardi. My father was deeply impressed with Phil because he got roads built that were very necessary for the country to go ahead.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Good leaders need kudos continued from page 6

As my father used to say, “I’m all for leaders that know how to lead for the betterment of the people.” So thanks for doing that article in your little paper. It’s good to see people that are good leaders given a little pat on the back. Patricia Coe, Burnaby

Deportation of ex-KGB agent would send message Dear Editor:

Re: How will deporting ex-KGB agent make Canada better?, Letters to the editor, Burnaby NOW, Jan. 10. Well, first of all, it would tell other foreign nationals wishing to emigrate that Canadians are not dupes, and you had better do it legally. Also, that we don’t appreciate being lied to, nor are we willing to set a dangerous precedent. Mr. Lennikov knew the conditions of his visit to Canada – for aca-

demic reasons only. There seems to be a degree of naiveté in Mr. Morton’s blind belief that KGB agents are noted for their translation skills. However, they are noted for relating all personal and professional info, gleaned from their almost intimate proximity to their clients, plus all their conversations and moral inconsistencies as they arise – to their handlers. In fact, it is not unheard of that these spies (for that is what they are) will set up, oh, I don’t know, say, assignations with some of their prettier cohorts for, say, Japanese businessmen. Mr. Morton says he “understands” that “Lennikov was recruited by the KGB for his language translation skills.” We think he means from what Mr. Lennikov asserts. It is my understanding that the KGB is not noted for being forthcoming on internal matters. My “remembrance of things past” seems to include the comments of Mandy Rice-Davies when told that Lord Astor denied having an affair with her. Her reply? “He would, wouldn’t he?”

since 2008 the branch has had the power to investigate and levy monetary penalties against parties for repeated non-compliance with the law. While the minister responsible for housing’s stated intent was to hire staff to investigate and proactively “levy significant fines for bad behaviour,” to date these powers have only been used by the branch a single time. In that much publicized case, involving a landlord who repeatedly ignored orders mandating critical repairs to an apartment building, the branch issued a $115,000 penalty against the landlord. However, the branch then went on to enter into an agreement that essentially waived the entire fine if the landlord did little more than complete the repairs originally ordered and did not incur any new penalties within two years. The message this sends landlords and ten-

Housing: Tenancy laws need teeth as rushed and short-tempered, which leaves the parties feeling like their case has not been taken seriously or carefully determined. In a worstcase scenario, parties can leave feeling like they have been abused by a public servant. There are limited legal options available to a person who is dissatisfied with the branch’s decision. It is common to see, for example, a tenant evicted on two days’ notice on the basis of a seriously flawed decision. The personal costs to that individual tenant are extraordinary, but there are also costs to the public, because these kinds of decisions often lead to homelessness and significant health consequences. In addition to deciding individual complaints, the law grants the branch a range of tools to deter repeated violations of the law. Most importantly,

New Year, New Opportunities

ants across province is that there is a very small chance the branch will actually investigate and fine a party who repeatedly violates the law and, even if a fine is levied, it can be negotiated away. In short, there are few to no consequences for repeatedly and flagrantly breaching the law. The ongoing failure of the branch to effectively enforce B.C.’s tenancy laws compromises the protections contained in B.C.’s tenancy legislation. A functioning enforcement mechanism that protects B.C.’s rental housing and the parties that rely on it is in everyone’s interest.

Brentwood Town Centre’s first highrise tower is putting another $5 million in the city’s hands. Within the mall’s first phase of development is another rezoning application to allow for a 53-storey residential tower above a commercial podium. City council approved an estimated $5.2 million cash-inlieu contribution from the density bonus at its Jan. 13 meeting. “This is a contribution made by the developer, which will go back to the community and result in community facilities, such as rec centres and other services in Brentwood Town Centre,” Coun.

Mayor’s adviser and friend remembered Stefania Seccia staff reporter

At the last council meeting, a moment of silence was held for Don Jantzen, a longtime confidant and adviser to Mayor Derek Corrigan. Jantzen was a former vice-president of the IWA, Local 1-217, and served as executive assistant to municipal affairs minister Jim Lorimer from 1972 to 1975. The moment of silence also commemorated the passing of former Burnaby councillor and freeman Doug Evans. “Tonight, with great sadness, but also with tremendous pride for the many significant accomplishments, I want to take some time to talk about our very recent loss of two great men, both of whom made remarkable contributions to the City of Burnaby,” Corrigan said at the Jan. 13 meeting. Jantzen, a longtime Burnaby resident, not only advised Corrigan while he was chair of B.C. Transit and mayor, but he also assisted former Burnaby MP Svend Robinson as his campaign manager.

“Originally from Herbert, Sask., Don arrived in British Columbia in 1947, after hitchhiking and riding the rails to get here,” Corrigan said. “By 1949, his mother and 10 siblings had joined him.” Jantzen was involved in organizing labour sub-trades to assist with the building of a Burnaby housing project under the auspices of Habitat for Humanity. “Don will be remembered by his many friends for his work ethic as a jitney driver, plant chairman and shop steward, as well as his enthusiastic organizational activities on behalf of his union and as a lifetime member of the New Democratic Party,” Corrigan noted. Jantzen was the City of Burnaby’s community relations coordinator, as well. He is survived by his siblings, Chester, Eva, Orville and extended family. Jantzen’s celebration of life is being held on Jan. 26, from 2 to 5 p.m., at the Maritime Labour Centre at 1880 Triumph St. Donations in Jantzen’s memory will be made to the Queen Alexandra School Breakfast Club. twitter.com/stefania_seccia

There will also be a digital feed broadcasting from the observatory, and an outdoor courtyard with sundials and room for people to set up telescopes. Trottier, who is also known as Mr. Starry Nights, hosts regular astronomy events for families and the general public. The Starry Nights events draw thousands of kids to SFU each year to gaze through telescopes and look at the night skies. For Trottier, bolstering public interest in science is crucial, and that’s what he’s hoping the observatory and outreach centre will do. “The future of society depends on science. Without science, we’re toast. We can’t solve the world’s problems without science,” he said. Follow Jennifer on Twitter, @JenniferMoreau

VOLUNTEERISM – KEEPING COMMUNITIES ALIVE By Oscar Cruz About one-half of Canadians contributed their time, energy and skills to groups and organizations such as charities and non-profits. They provided leadership on boards and committees; canvassed for funds; provided advice, counselling or mentoring; visited seniors; prepared and delivered food; served as volunteer drivers; advocated for social causes; coached children and youth. In short, they shaped their communities and enabled non-profit organizations to deliver programs and services to millions of their fellow Canadians. This volunteer work is important not only to individual volunteers but to Canadian society as a whole. For example, according to the 2011 United Nations State of the World’s Volunteerism Report, “...volunteerism benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer by strengthening trust, solidarity and reciprocity among citizens, and by purposefully creating opportunities for participation.”

VOLUNTEER BURNABY CELEBRATES COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT Thank you for all your

Because of your generosity many community organizations were able to open doors in this New Year to fulfill their mission and vision of better communities. We would like to show our appreciation to our BRENTWOOD GIFT WRAP LOUNGE VOLUNTEERS and community partners. You are the heart and soul of our mission and vision at Volunteer Burnaby. With your help we … “Promote volunteerism as a right and a responsibility of the citizens of Burnaby and New Westminster and facilitate community development through volunteering”

Thank you!

• Leading Volunteers: Foundations in Volunteer Management – will give you the tools to become a leader in your community

Many Canadians become involved in volunteering because people they know are doing it. Some Canadians contribute to an organization or cause because they are required to do unpaid charitable work by an authority, such as their school, their employer, the organization to which they belong, or the courts. Just over 7% of volunteers aged 15 and over reported that they had performed this type of required community service in 2010. They contributed 98 million hours, equivalent to more than 6% of the total volunteer hours devoted to non-profit or charitable organizations. Canadian researchers have found that moderate Internet users recorded higher volunteer rates and more volunteer hours than nonusers, even after controlling for sociodemographic characteristics such as age, sex, education and presence of children.

A Canadian study has shown that people who were involved in community activities in their childhood or adolescence have a greater tendency to become adults who are involved in more kinds of civic activities like formal and informal volunteering, political organizations, service clubs, community associations, and so on. Raising money and putting on events are the two most common activities in which volunteers are engaged. 45% of volunteers are involved in fundraising and almost as many participated in organizing or supervising events (44%). About one-third sit on a committee or board (33%) or provide teaching, educating or mentoring (30%). About one-quarter of volunteers collect, serve or delivering food (28%), counsel or provide advice (28%), and do office work (23%). Coaching, refereeing or officiating is reported by 18% of volunteers, while the smallest proportion, 6%, are involved in first aid, firefighting or search and rescue.

26 Top 5 Things To Do

SECTION COORDINATOR Janaya Fuller-Evans, 604-444-3024 jfuller-evans@burnabynow.com

FOCUS ON 2014: HELPING LOCAL BUSINESSES BECOME MORE ‘FAMILY-FRIENDLY’

Board looks back on ‘very positive’ year Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Business was looking up in Burnaby in 2013, according to Paul Holden, president and CEO of the Burnaby Board of Trade. “The feedback we had from the membership in general was very positive. We’ve had a number of our members that have seen really quite considerable growth in their businesses,” he said. “Overall, our sense has been that it’s been a very positive year for Burnaby businesses.” It was also a good year for the board, which saw membership increase as well as attendance at events, he added. The board finished its first year of the Student Access Program and started the second year, according to Holden. The career development program was created to connect postsecondary students with business leaders and representatives. “We’ve had an increase in the number of students, and we have SFU, BCIT and Douglas College as partners on that program,” he said. “We’ve had some good success stories with students who have found employment since going through the program, so that’s been excellent.” The board also saw increased interest in its Pledge for a Sustainable Community, with more than 100 members signing on last year. The sustainability initiative is an online resource designed to help businesses reduce their environmental

impact while promoting their business. “That program has been very successful for us in terms of the number of members that we’ve had engaged and also what it’s done for us in terms of the profile of our organization,” Holden said, who added other boards and chambers showed an interest in it. The new version of the pledge website was created in a format that allows other organizations to take a licensed version of the program and customize it for their community, he added. In 2014, the board is planning to continue its work on social issues, particularly those relating to family-friendly initiatives, according to Holden. “We asked members about what they’d like our priorities to be this year,” he said. “The message came across loud and clear that it was issues relating to businesses becoming more family-friendly and initiatives that enabled their staff to have a more flexible work life, because of possibly the challenges they have with family care and other family issues.” The social issues committee will be looking at the issue this year and developing Burnaby-specific initiatives, he said. Last spring, the board announced it would also be working with the Surrey Board of Trade on a position paper on the issue. Another focus for the board this year will be the 15th anniversary of the annual Burnaby Business Excellence Awards, according to Holden.

“The message came across loud and clear that it was issues relating to businesses becoming more family-friendly and initiatives that enabled their staff to have a more flexible work life.” PAUL HOLDEN president & CEO

“It’s always a fantastic event, but we want to try to do something a bit special this year,” he said. For more on the board’s plans for 2014, including a members’ trip to India, go to www.bbot.ca.

Kicking up a storm in Burnaby

Kix 4 Chix Fitness, a non-competitive kickboxing program for women, is coming to the Lower Mainland. Owner Nicole Neuert told the NOW she has studios in Kamloops and Williams Lake, but the Burnaby studio will be the first Lower Mainland location for the franchise. Neuert, who has been kickboxing for 14 years, opened Kix 4 Chix Fitness in 2007. “The best part about this program besides getting into shape and losing weight is that it’s fun,” she wrote in an email to the NOW. She is planning to open the studio at 5097 Canada Way in the beginning of February.

For more information, go to kix4chix.ca or email Neuert at nic@kix4chix.

How to get into healthcare

To that end, the Burnaby Public Library is sponsoring a free healthcare professions training fair next month, which will be presented by Burnaby Community and Continuing Education. The fair will provide information on programs for medical office assistants, health-care assistants, reflexologists and dental office administrators, according to the posting on the library’s website. The free training fair takes place at the Bob Prittie Metrotown library branch on Feb. 3 from 1 to 4 p.m. Those interested should register in advance by call-

ing the library’s reference desk at 604-436-5400 or by registering online. For more information, go to tinyurl.com/ HealthcareTrainingFair.

Those interested in applying should bring their resumé to the job fair at the Executive Plaza Hotel and Conference Centre, 405 North Rd., in Coquitlam on Feb. 4 and 5.

Local hosts sought for homestay students HERE & NOW

Jennifer Moreau

A

North Vancouver company is looking for local families willing to take on homestay students attending schools in Burnaby. Muskoka Language

International is hosting an info session on Wed. Jan. 22, from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Edmonds Community Centre at 7433 Edmonds St. The session will give a brief overview of what’s involved when hosting a homestay student. According to Muskoka, there’s a growing international demand for Burnaby secondary school programs, which means foreign students need local homes to host them. There is a $350 honorarium for a

10-night stay, and students are expected from March 4 to 14. All the details will be provided at the info session. For more, contact Lyn Duke at lduke@ mliesl.com.

the Burnaby Inter-Faith Project to host a tour of the Masjid al-Salaam and Education Centre on Jan. 22, from 6 to 8 p.m. The Burnaby mosque is on Canada Way, and the program includes light refreshments, a tour, a brief overview of Islam and the evening’s worship service. This tour marks the first in a series that is designed to promote knowledge and understanding about Burnaby’s diverse faiths.

On Thursday, Feb. 13, the group will tour a Sikh temple in Burnaby. To pre-register, go to www.surveymonkey.com/ s/mosque_tour.

Hot floor could signal a significant problem CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: My 2002 Honda Odyssey (96,000 miles) has been a great car, other than having to replace the transmission at 60,000. When we take a road trip, we notice that after about two hours on the highway, the floor of the car just behind the front passenger seat gets hot – really hot! So hot that

it is uncomfortable to keep shod feet on the carpet for more than a few minutes. The underside of the right, middle-row seat gets uncomfortably hot to the touch, too. We took the car in to our regular mechanic, who generally does a good job. He said that everything is fine as long as nothing is glowing under the car when it gets that hot. It’s hard to believe that this is not a fire risk! I’m not confident I would be able to see something glow in broad daylight. Do I listen to my mechanic, or do I cave to my safety-freak maternal instincts and take this in to the dealer for what is likely to be an overpriced repair bill, whether or not they fix the

problem? What do you think is causing this? Many thanks. –Beth TOM: It sounds like the heat is coming from a catalytic converter, Beth. There’s one right in the spot you describe. RAY: It may be something minor, like a missing heat shield. Or it could be something more significant. But it was lame of your mechanic to send you on your way without bothering to figure out what’s wrong. TOM: So you have two problems: A heat problem, and a mechanic problem. If you don’t feel that your mechanic is willing to put

in the time to figure this out, then find someone else (check the Mechanics Files at www.cartalk.com for a free list of highly recommended mechanics). Because, of course excessive heat can be a fire hazard. RAY: There are three possibilities that come to mind. The simplest is that a heat shield has corroded and fallen off. Parts that get very hot, like catalytic converters, are surrounded by shielding material to prevent the heat from igniting something nearby. Like your buttocks. TOM: But heat shields are made of cheap metal, and eventually they fall off,

or start making so much rattling noise that people remove them. So first you want to see if your heat shield is intact. RAY: The second possibility is that something’s wrong with the engine that’s causing your converter to run hot. If your fuel-air mixture is too rich – due to a cylinder misfire, for instance – gasoline will get combusted in the converter instead of in the engine. And that can produce a lot of heat –which you will feel, whether the heat shield is intact or not. TOM: The final possibility is that your converter is plugged up. That’s what happens when converters

get old. Typically, you’ll notice a drop in power because exhaust is unable to leave the engine freely, but you might not notice it. A plugged converter will run hot, and eventually glow. RAY: Whatever it is, though, get it figured out and address it. Or your next letter to us might start out: “My 2002 Honda Odyssey has been a great car, other than having to replace the transmission at 60,000 and the four-alarm car fire at 97,000!” Good luck, Beth.

PETS

NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS FOR PETS Pet ownership is the most satisfying of experiences. We see reports fairly routinely that suggest having a dog or cat for a companion helps us live longer. Fewer stress related and heart related illnesses are reported for pet owners, than for non-pet owners. One benefit I can vouch for is that growing up with a pet helps children develop a sense of responsibility and compassion and above all, is important to all-round personality development. As benefits of living with pets are immense, every individual should have the right to enjoy the right to pet ownership. But with every right, comes duties. It has to be the duty of every pet owner to provide the absolute best care possible for a family or individual that adopts a pet. Pet care, just like human healthcare, is focused on multiple lifestyle and life stage based recommendations. It is essential to realize the importance of what may be the best nutrition, parasite prevention program, dental care and exercise options for your individual pet. If pets share a house with other pets of the same or different species, these recommendations may change. As I have noticed with my own pets, it can be difficult to keep up with life stage based requirements for pets because of how quickly they age. My family dog is an 8-year-old Himalayan Sheepdog and now qualifies as a “senior”. It seems like yesterday when he was still a little pup. My younger Pug-Chihuahua mix (Chug if you will!) appears to be aging faster than expected with every passing year. I can fully understand other fellow pet owners not realizing all the changes going through their pets body early enough in order to provide the best care possible. So while we may have finished making resolutions for 2014 for ourselves, now would be a good time to make some resolutions for our pets. Dental tartar, gingivitis and oral infections are more common than pet owners realize. Also, obesity in Canadian pets is common and

MADISON

JOSIE

6 Year 2 Month old, Spayed Female, Domestic Medium Hair, Mixed Breed.

1 Year 1 Month 1 Week old, Spayed Female, Domestic Longhair, Mixed Breed.

SPCA ID 314694.

‘Madison’ is looking for a special someone to call her own. This sweet girl needs a quiet environment with gentle handling. Madison can still be a bit shy until she knows you. She will gladly come and lay on your lap seeking some cuddle and petting time. She is also quite playful with the right choice of toys. So, if you are in the spirit of wanting some cat companionship, please come and say “hello” to this sweetheart!

SPCA ID 315527.

Josie is a beautiful long haired girl who is looking for a quiet forever home. She is very affectionate and snugly, and just wants to curl up on your lap. She can be scared of loud things so no young children for her. Josie cannot go with other cats however she would probably be okay with a mellow dog. Her luscious locks will require regular grooming. If you are looking for a soft, cuddly, sweet mellow companion, come meet Josie!

avoidable with the right exercise schedule and nutrition. Middle aged to older dogs and cats tend to have arthritis more commonly than we realize and a simple intervention such as keeping them warm at home, or adding the correct glucosamine supplement can make a difference for older pets. Keep in mind that pets do not benefit as much from human glucosamine products as they do from supplements specifically designed for their needs. Cats are not little dogs; they have different nutritional, social and grooming needs. In survey after survey, cats are also reported to have less than adequate care when it comes to annual evaluations. While it is common knowledge that dogs need annual check-ups, somehow this need is ignored when it comes to cats. Major illnesses that may affect long-term quality of life for a pet can be diagnosed through timely checkups with a veterinarian. If you haven’t taken your pet in for a checkup for more than a year, resolve to do so this year. And the sooner the better!

showing her belly which in the cat world is showing just how trusting she is. Pearl is 7 years young and ready to settle in to a home that will be forever. Come fall for this amazing feline, you won’t be disappointed.

Theo can be very excitable and would need a home with people that could work on his training, and calming exercises, a house with a fenced backyard. Theo is still a young dog and lots of exercise would be beneficial to him and will help to calm him down. He is good with other dogs, but because of his excitability he would not be suitable for a home with small children. Theo has had some training and knows commands like “sit, stay, come, down”. Come see Theo at the Burnaby SPCA.

DIESEL

CINNA BUN

4 Year 4 Month 4 Week old, Neutered Male, Pit Bull Terrier, Mixed Breed.

9 Month 3 Week old , Spayed Female , Rex, Mixed Breed.

SPCA ID 304782.

Diesel is a BIG, handsome man currently in a foster home looking for his perfect match! He would love an active owner who has plenty of time for him and a flexible schedule is a must. Diesel is excellent on leash and loves leisurely walks with his humans. He also has WONDERFUL obedience and sits, lays down and shakes a paw like a PRO! He can jump up when excited and needs a CONFIDENT positive guardian to help him learn. Diesel is patiently waiting to meet you!!!

SPCA ID 318370.

Cinnabun needs a quiet home as she is a bit fearful of new situations. As such, a home with younger children might not be the best home for her. An adult home with time to give would be much more appropriate. That said, once she gets to know you, Cinnabun comes to say hello and is quite affectionate. Cinnabun is also litter trained and likes to keep a tidy living space. If you have an affinity for rabbits, we know Cinnabun will have an affinity for you!

The BCSPCA cares for more than 32,000 homeless, abused and injured animals each year, including more than 1,000 animals in Burnaby. The non-profit society receives no provincial government funding and is completely reliant on community support for most of its services.

Shampoo Be Gone

Ski Bunny Facial

by Sara Samson

by Sarah Bancroft

We’ve heard a lot about the “No poo” movement (people swamping shampoo for natural ingredients or daily shampooers giving it up for a few weeks to detox the hair) and have to admit we’re intrigued.

Skiing Peak-to-Peak is exhilarating, but the whipping wind, reflecting sun, and sub-zero temperatures can wreak havoc on your face.

Purely Perfect has recently come out with the ultimate “unshampoo” Cleansing Crème that could be a game changer. Used on wet hair, the crème takes the impurities out of your hair but leaves the good stuff like essential oils to make your hair shiny and keep colour vibrant. There’s also no need for conditioner because your hair’s natural conditioners are still intact. Rinse, and repeat (eventually).

Pre- and post-piste, make sure to slather your visage with Pure by Dr. Roebuck’s, an Australian dermatologist whose ski bunny daughters have taken up the brand. While we love all the products in the range (which we’ve been testing all fall), Pure is the winner when it comes to long-lasting skin protection that’s non-greasy and smells cleans and fresh. That’s right, now hide it on your ski boot.

‘Hidden gem’ takes part in Dine Out Vancouver Janaya Fuller-Evans

staff reporter

Tucked into the south of Burnaby, the Riverway Clubhouse isn’t exactly a restaurant you stumble upon. “It really is a hidden gem, because some people don’t even know we’re here,” says Kristen Robb, marketing coordinator for Riverway. “So, we’re working on it.” But soon, the clubhouse at the Riverway Golf Course will play host to people from all over the region when it takes part in Dine Out Vancouver. “You’re getting a better quality meal for a special price,” Robb says. “So it gives us a little more room to do something more spe-

cial, that extra little bit.” Generally, the clubhouse caters to local golfers and their family and friends, and has a strong lunch crowd from businesses in the area, according to Robb. But she hopes the Dine Out Vancouver event will draw new customers to the area. “It’s a great opportunity to get people from farther out who don’t normally come here to try something different,” Robb says. “And I think that’s kind of what the point of Dine Out is, it’s for a lot of the foodie people to try restaurants perhaps they’ve not tried before and hopefully find a new one that they like, that they’ll frequent after the festival.” The clubhouse’s $28 Dine Out menu includes

options such as vanilla poached Canadian lobster tail, Queen Charlotte Islands halibut, red braised pork belly and pan seared sesame-crusted scallop and deconstructed lemon meringue pie. The clubhouse is at 9001

Bill Fox Way. For more information about the clubhouse, go to tinyurl.com/ RiverwayClubhouse. Other Burnaby participants in Dine Out Vancouver are: Broken Rice Vietnamese Restaurant in the Heights at 4088 Hastings

St.; Hart House alongside Deer Lake at 6664 Deer Lake Ave.; Horizons on Burnaby Mountain at 100 Centennial Way; The Keg Steakhouse and Bar at 4510 Still Creek Ave.; Reflect Social Dining and Lounge at the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown;

Stonegrill at the Met at #259-4820 Kingsway; and Tivoli’s Restaurant at 4201 Lougheed Hwy. The Dine Out Vancouver Festival takes place from Jan. 17 to Feb. 2. See www. dineoutvancouver.com for more details.

Basketball ballet: Martin Bogajev goes in for a left-handed lay in to help Burnaby South defeat the Byrne Creek Bulldogs 74-59 in BNW high school boys’ basketball at South on Wednesday.

Second half sends South over ’Dogs Tom Berridge

sports editor

When Burnaby South and Bryne Creek tip off in senior boys’ basketball there is usually fireworks. But the visual display in South’s 74-59 win over Byrne Creek in Wednesday’s mid-week league matchup was less than Celebration of Light worthy. “We don’t seem to play well at 3:30 (p.m.),” said South head coach Dave Smith. “We lost our brains. We were just so emtional, we were incapable of playing well. They didn’t know how to deal with it.”’ The after-school atmosphere, coupled with a crackdown on personal fouls made for a sloppy first half. Both teams counted nine points from the charity stripe in the first quarter of play. But turnovers and missed opportunities continued at both ends of the court until South’s Tyus Batiste

Bronco bucks up with fifth career double-double

came off the bench and settled things down with a solid 13-point contribution, including nine points in the second stanza. Byrne Creek kept themselves in the game in the second quarter, shaving the deficit to 38-32 at half time with three-pointers from Bodi Geoffrey and Abdul Bangura. But in the second half, South caught fire when guard Taylor Smith moved to the wing position and was unstoppable, draining three buckets from beyond the arc to lead all scorers with 21 total points. Martin Bogajev also settled down and contributed seven of his 15 points in the pivotal third quarter. Geoffrey kept a hot hand in the second half for Byrne, leading the Bulldogs with a team-high 14 points. Darryl Cruz also had double-digit numbers with 11 points, including five-of-six free throws. “They came in focused. We proved what we’re capable of in the

first half,” said Byrne Creek head coach Bal Dhillon. But Smith added that Byrne Creek likely missed its best chance to beat the No. 9-ranked quad A Rebels. “It took us a half. It usually takes us two minutes to settle down. You can’t play the game when you are out of your head,” Smith said. “If (Byrne Creek) was going to beat us, today was the day.” This week, the 10-6 Rebels will be in Abbotsford for the 54th annual Snowball Classic in a field of seven provincially ranked teams, including Ontario’s No. 2 quad A Henry Carr high school from Toronto, Sardis, Yale, W.J. Mouat and honourable mention St. George’s, as well as No. 2 AAA Abbotsford Senior and AA No. 3-ranked Southern Okanagan. Later in January, Byrne Creek will also get a chance to again face AAAranked schools Sir Charles Tupper, Sutherland and host McMath at the Wildcat Classic in Richmond.

St. Thomas More grad Lexie Der of Burnaby recorded her second doubledouble of the season for the Boise State Broncos varsity women’s basketball team last Saturday. The sophomore forward scored 11 points and added a team-high 10 rebounds in a 55-48 loss to Wyoming in NCAA Division I Mountain West conference play. It was Der’s fifth career double-double. Der currently leads the Broncos with 56 offensive rebounds and in threepoint shooting percentage, with a .407 on 11 in 27 attempts.

FIGURE SKATING

Burnaby juniors medal at nationals Burnaby Figure Skating Club’s Eric Liu overcame first-round leader Nicolas Nadeau of Quebec to win the junior men’s bronze medal at the Canadian national skating championships in Ottawa on Wednesday. Liu made good on six triples, including a triple lutz-double toe combination to start and a triple toe-double toe-double loop later in the program. Liu’s 171.54 total score was a fraction behind runner-up Bennet Toman of Quebec. Ontario’s Denis Margalik won the junior title with a 181.43 score. Ice dancers Brianna Delmaestro and Timothy Lum of Burnaby also placed third following a strong final free dance. Delmaestro and Lum garnered 134.25 points, but were edged out of second place by Quebec’s Melinda and Andrew Meng by less than three-tenths of a point. First-round leaders Mackenzie Bent and Garrett MacKeen of Ontario also won the free dance portion to win gold in the junior

ice dance with an 142.61 score. Burnaby’s Danielle Wu and Spencer Soo finished off the podium in fourth place with a 128.44 total. In the junior women’s final, sectional medallists Belvina Mao and Kelsey Wong of Burnaby placed 10th and 12th, respectively. Mao, who was fourth after the opening day skate, had points deducted off all of her six jumps, including an opening triple toeloop. Wong had three points deducted off her final score, but got bonus marks for a successful triple lutz earlier in her long program that contained four atttempted triple jumps. Kim DeGuise of Quebec won the junior women’s title, while B.C. provincial champion Julianne Delaurier of Kelowna held on to the silver medal, despite a fourth-best freeskate score. Jayda Jurome of B.C. finished in fourth spot, moving up from 11th place after the opening program with a second-best 78.93 score in the free skate.

Rookies Cody Bremner and Tyler Digby both scored timely goals in the second half. Bremner tallied in the third quarter following a Swarm penalty kill, while Digby, a second-year Burnaby Laker, got his fourth goal of the season minutes into the finalperiod to put Vancouver ahead 7-4.
