How much damage did coal spill cause? Environmental consulting company is assessing the situation following Jan. 11 train derailment
How much harm has been done? CN-hired environmental consultants working on the water at Burnaby Lake, following a Jan. 11 train derailment that left unknown quantities of coal in Silver Creek. The area where the derailment occurred is marked as sensitive fish and wildlife habitat.
Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
CN Rail has hired an environmental consulting company to assess the damage, following the Jan. 11 train derailment in Burnaby that saw three overturned cars spill unknown quantities of coal into Silver Creek. On Friday, Jan. 17, workers were on the water at Burnaby Lake, in front of the nesting area for the endangered Western painted turtle, at the mouth of Silver Creek. The crew also had the nesting area cordoned off with blue netting. The Burnaby NOW and members of the public have photographed and videotaped impacts from the spill, including blackened banks on Silver Creek, a large dark area in Burnaby Lake, and coal-coated sand on the nesting area for the endangered Western painted turtle. The area of Silver Creek where the derailment occurred is marked by signs from Fisheries and Oceans Canada that state the area is a sensitive fish and wildlife habitat. The NOW contacted three government agencies regarding the spill –

Transit referendum debate keeps on raging Stefania Seccia staff reporter
While TransLink’s mayors’ council has openly disagreed with the province over a proposed transit referendum, Simon Fraser University groups are hoping to get more students out to vote for it.
At Wednesday’s council meeting, Metro Vancouver’s mayors reiterated their disagreement over a transit referendum and bounced the responsibility back on the province to word the referendum it pushed for over TransLink’s funding problems. On Thursday, Transportation Minister Todd Stone confirmed
the referendum will go through in November 2014. He said the responsibility lies with the mayors to agree on a regional plan, determine the price tag and decide how to fund it. “It’s important we all say to the people in the region to join this discussion,” Stone said in a phone interview. “Let us know

Too close for comfort:
Biology instructor and Burnaby resident Cameron MacDonald wants to see a larger setback area between Byrne Creek and a South Burnaby development. MacDonald says the setback protects the creek from runoff and provides habitat for wildlife. He’s also raising concerns about erosion control.

Development too close to creek? Development’s ‘setback’ area razed and covered in sand, but city says it will be replanted Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
A local resident is raising concerns that a South Burnaby development is encroaching on habitat for wildlife and fish. Cameron MacDonald, a biology instructor at Langara College, lives in the Big Bend area and walks along Byrne Creek. The salmonbearing stream runs south of the Riverway Golf Course, into the Fraser River, but MacDonald has concerns that a massive development next to the creek is too close to the waterway. “My main concern is they have a little ecological setback – and they’ve just ploughed it under,” he told the NOW, while walking alongside the creek recently. The setback MacDonald is referring to is a strip of land that functions as a buffer zone between the development and the creekside. At the development site, there was a wide setback zone next to the creek, but that has since been bulldozed and covered with sand, leaving only a couple of metres of buffer zone. “When the tides are really in and there’s
rainfall, the creek is at road level,” he said. “I’ve seen that within a metre.” According to MacDonald, who specializes in ecology, a setback measuring 15 to 30 metres would be ideal for a number of reasons: erosion control, protecting the creek from runoff and providing a sliver of habitat for wildlife. “You’ve got 30 centimetres of setback when you really need 30 metres of setback,” he said. “As far as I can tell, there’s no erosion control here.” According to MacDonald, the lower stretch of Byrne Creek is a tidal estuary that connects to the Fraser and is subject to the pull of the tides. Estuaries, in general, are considered extremely productive environments that are rich in biodiversity. MacDonald goes birdwatching in the area and has spotted the endangered barn owl, as well as barn swallows, which are listed as threatened by the federal government, and short-eared owls, which are considered a species of concern. MacDonald also explained that the nowrazed habitat corridor is important because it connects the Fraser River to the Riverway Golf Course. “Any time you remove a connection like that, you’re going to impact species diversity,”

he said. MacDonald said he contacted the City of Burnaby with his concerns that the developer was working in the setback area but was told as long as they have proper erosion controls in place, it’s all above board and that the development had passed an environmental assessment. “It’s a real lost opportunity for the city. There’s not a lot of green space in South Burnaby. A little sliver of space would have a big ecological benefit with very little economical cost,” MacDonald said. Lise Townsend, the city’s ecosystem planner, told the NOW the owner/developer secured approval about 10 years ago from the city and Fisheries and Oceans Canada to work in the setback area, which included clearing some vegetation and preparing the area with “preload” to compact and stabilize the soil. According to Townsend, the city has a streamside bylaw that determines minimum setback areas for developers working close to waterways, and the minimum for this site is 15 metres from the top of the bank. Townsend also said the plan is to replant the area in the future, possibly within the next year. “They are required by the city and Fisheries and Oceans Canada to replant and restore

The Burnaby woman trapped inside her own body says she can’t wait for the Supreme Court of Canada decision on assisted suicide. Last week, one of the country’s top courts decided it would hear the assisted suicide case presented by the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, but it rejected a request to expedite the process. As the Burnaby NOW previously reported, Rawnie Dunn, 62, wants the right to choose when she dies, but waiting for the Supreme Court decision just isn’t an option. “That makes me very angry,” Rawnie told the NOW, “because people like me are driven into a corner because they have a choice of enduring a lot of pain for a long time, or dealing with more pain in less time.” In early January, Rawnie attempted to starve herself to death for two weeks. She would drink tea in the morning and have some beef broth at night – but when more media outlets showed interest in her story, she decided to stop the hunger strike. “There were so many phone calls and emails (to my nurse), I thought with the interest I would come back and start eating again for a few days,” Rawnie said. “But I do plan on not eating again.” After the Burnaby NOW reported Rawnie’s story in December, she was featured in a national news broadcast about assisted suicide on CTV’s Kevin Newman Live. Two other major media outlets are also in contact with Rawnie, as well. Despite the interest, Rawnie said she still intends to choose when she dies because the issue might be held up in the courts for many years to

Right to die: Rawnie Dunn says she doesn’t want to suffer for several more years waiting on the Supreme Court of Canada to make a decision about assisted suicide, and she may resort to starvation as a way out. come, especially since the federal government has said it will challenge a favourable ruling on assisted suicide. Rawnie was born with Friederich’s ataxia, a 65 per cent hearing loss, aggressive scoliosis, carbohydrate intolerance and heart problems. At the end of November 2012, a few weeks after her 61st birthday, she tried to take her own life before her disorder took over her life. Her attempt was not successful, as she did not have a doctor-signed Do Not Resuscitate order. When she woke up in the hospital, the doctors gave her about 20 minutes to live, but her body kept on going. She went from being wheelchairbound with some mobility, to being paralyzed from the neck down, blind and sensitive to light, almost completely deaf and with a severe speech impediment because of the toll the suicide attempt took out on her. “I really want to add my push to it,” Rawnie said. “I think it’s important, and I think it would help people after me, but I don’t think I can wait.
I’m not a fun person.” According to her son, Tavis Dunn, the doctors don’t know why his mother is still alive since most people with Friederich’s ataxia die by age 38. “Initially, when she took the overdose, the doctors there thought maybe 20 minutes when they took her off the machine,” he said. “She just keeps going. Then, doctors said maybe a few days, maybe a few weeks, maybe a few months.” But since December, a doctor may have signed Dunn’s Do Not Resuscitate order. Tavis says his mother may have to wait to find her own way out, at least until they obtain the actual number of the order. “Every (order) has a number,” he said. “We have a care conference on Feb. 12 where you discuss an update, so it’s something we’re going to bring up, so it’s in her book (patient file). We’ll discuss with mom before that, what she does want, so it’s in her (file).” The choice to end her suffering is Dunn Page 8

IN MY OPINION
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR No-grade report cards a problem Dear Editor:
Advocates for “no letter grade” report cards in our schools are again trying to push their agenda. This is nothing new. It’s been happening all over B.C. for years. But parents don’t like it, many teachers don’t like it, and children who are determined to achieve a higher education don’t like it. I hope that Burnaby does not jump on this bandwagon. I do understand and agree with the objectives of a no-grade system. Fear of failure distracts and may even saddle students with lifelong “test anxiety.” Anticipation of success distracts and may also cripple students: everyone remembers at least one “geek” with per-
fect grades and no friends from primary, middle or high school. But fear of failure and recognition of success propel people to be the best they can be at whatever they do in our society and economy. Trying to shelter children from this real-world reality of competition with peers while in our school system does them no favours. Traditional grade reporting has other shortcomings. It can promote teaching to standard tests rather than teaching individual students or recognizing diverse learning styles. But it has been used for many years in many countries. Its flaws are known and its negative results can be discounted for specific students as needed. It works well to

City should OK seniors plan Dear Editor:
In October of last year, the George Derby Care Society came forward to city council with a plan to create over 100 units of below market rate housing units for senior citizens. I strongly urge the municipal government to work quickly in approving this project. The cost of housing has continued to increase in Burnaby and in other cities in the Lower Mainland, and for those on fixed incomes, this has meant that the rising cost of housing has taken up an increasing share of seniors’ retirement savings. The George Derby lands already have many of the amenities that seniors will require to continue living independently. This is to be encouraged and applauded, and the guarantee from the developer that the suites will be offered at below market rates is something that should be celebrated, not just for its kindness towards the seniors who use the suites but for reducing demand in the city as a whole.

Councillors need to listen Dear Editor:
Re: Consider the source of criticism, Letters to the editor, Burnaby NOW, Jan. 15. This letter is in regard to the letter of Mr. Pietro Calendino, city councillor, and self-appointed “voice for the silent majority.” Mr. Calendino makes reference to Mayor Derek Corrigan’s “intelligence, integrity and sound judgement.” Where was this intelligence, integrity and sound judgment when the mayor and his council strengthened the breed-specific legislation in the updated animal control bylaws despite all the evidence against it? Clearly an intelligent person would look at the hard scientific evidence, listen to the professionals in the relevant fields and make a decision supported by their constituents. But our mayor and council did none of these. And while I have no doubt our mayor is an intelligent person, his recent actions would lead one to believe otherwise. So Mr. Calendino, instead of just adding to the “silly season,” I encourage you to spend more time actually listening and talking to the people of Burnaby instead of just assuming you know what they want. Or you never know, perhaps some of the people that you claim are a long way off of getting elected may not be that far off. But I supposed in your mind you’ve already won that election, haven’t you?

Burnaby: Opposition lacking continued from page 6
significantly lower than the previous increase, the union and city agreed not to release the details of the benefits package to the public. The argument was that they did not want to influence bargaining in other municipalities. One year later, the details in this “memorandum of understanding on about 50 items” have still not been revealed to the public. Improved benefits have a quantifiable value that taxpayers deserve to know about. Where is the transparency? Where is the accountability? In such a
secretive environment, one can only speculate about what the cost to taxpayers will be. Current collective agreements will expire after the next civic election, and unless there is elected opposition these deals will be hidden from the critical eye of the public. So to whom do I complain? My BCA/NDP city councillor? My NDP MLA who happens to be married to the mayor? My NDP MPs who actively campaign for the BCA? Certainly, it is not just me who is concerned about this. “If this trend continues,” suggests the
Georgia Straight’s Charlie Smith, “it’s a recipe for more arrogance and possibly more corruption at the municipal level of government.” Until there is some movement in local governance from the benevolent dictatorship we currently have toward a fair participatory democracy, I feel compelled to continue asking uncomfortable questions and echoing the concerns of others. I hope others will unite and join me in shining a bright light on city hall. Rick McGowan is a member of the Burnaby Municipal Green Party.

Referendum: Students weigh in continued from page 1
“We have realized that students are really key stakeholders for transit, and we are aware the transit referendum is happening, but a lot of people don’t generally know about it,” Julia Lane, coordinating and external relations officer of SFU’s graduate student society, told the NOW. Lane said despite having no information on the referendum other than its date, Nov. 15, the referendum gives the students the opportunity to be heard. “Right now, we can’t really communicate a lot of information about the referendum, but we’re making sure we’re collecting supporters, and people who are interested,” she said. “We want to make sure students are prepared when they go out and vote, and what they’re being asked on.” Although the three SFU groups want more funding for TransLink, Lane says
they’re not trying to sway the vote, but ensure students have the information. “We just want them to get the information, go out and vote, regardless of how they vote,” she noted. “It’s been really interesting to watch students move from feeling defeated about transit … to excited because there’s something they can get involved in.” Chardaye Bueckert, external relations officer of Simon Fraser Student Society, said they captured 300 names in the first three days of collecting student information for the referendum. “It’s been really, really positive,” Bueckert told the NOW. “People are frustrated by their transit experience, they want to improve it, but they don’t know how to do that.” Bueckert said the groups are working on a website on the referendum, but in the meantime students can visit sfss.ca for more information.
Dunn: Difficult choice to make continued from page 5
one Rawnie intends to make on her own, Tavis says. “If she’s forced to make a choice for pain for a long time, or the starvation pain for a short period of time – it’s one of the painful choices you have to make,” he said. As time also winds
down, Rawnie says she’s worried about leaving money behind for her family. “Because I’m chronically disabled, I’ve had a lot of problems getting insurance,” she said. “It’s the way it is.” She’s been paying into a policy for the last eight years and worries that if she waited for doctor-
assisted suicide to become legal her insurance policy would disappear, as one of the stipulations of the policy is that she not commit suicide. “Mom’s always been pretty money-focused,” Tavis said. “She’s worried she’ll be a burden to her family, and I think she’s paid into this for so long, she’s worried.”

RCMP search for senior Cayley Dobie staff reporter
Burnaby RCMP is asking for the public’s help in locating a missing senior who may require medical attention. Norman Bacon, 79, was reported missing on Jan. 4. He was last heard from nearly one month before that on Dec. 13,
2013, according to a media release from the Burnaby RCMP. According to police, Bacon suffers from a medical condition that requires medication – without it he can “become confused and aggressive.” Police are asking people not to approach Bacon if spotted, and instead immediately call their local police
department. Bacon has been known to frequent New Westminster and Vancouver. Bacon is 5-10, weighs 220 pounds and has grey hair. It’s unknown what Bacon was wearing when he disappeared. Anyone with information is asked to call Burnaby RCMP missing persons unit at 604-294-7922.
Creek: City says setback area will be replanted in future continued from page 3
that entire area within 15 metres,” Townsend said, adding that as a fellow biologist, she understands MacDonald’s concerns. “It can look pretty ugly when you see something that is a construction area in progress,” she said. “I haven’t had any information that indicates they are not following the conditions of the approvals for working near the stream, but I don’t know preciously what they are doing.” Christine Ensing, an environmental services officer with the city, checked the area recently and said the trees were taken out because the area was covered with preload. “This is something that went through our environment committee years ago,
… those setback areas are still to be put in place. There’s nothing there right now, no trees or anything, but that was taken down, because they had to preload the site,” she said, adding the sand will be removed and the area replanted. “Those are little scrubby trees that can come out; that whole area is going to be replanted,” she said. “Then the development will occur outside of that. … Right now, we’re in an interim stage. If there is any sediment control, that should be in place to make sure no sand is moving into Byrne Creek.” The NOW also asked who the developer was, but Townsend didn’t know, and Lou Pelletier, head of the planning department, did not get back to the reporter, despite repeated requests. firstname.lastname@example.org

Coal: Environment Canada monitoring spill situation continued from page 1
Environment Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and the B.C. Environment Ministry – to find out who was looking after the fish in Silver Creek. After some initial confusion on their part about which agency was leading the response, the NOW was referred back to the Environment Ministry, which is working with CN to make sure the company is following proper protocol. According to the revised federal Fisheries Act, it’s illegal to deposit a “deleterious” substance into water frequented by fish, but Environment Canada told the NOW that coal, “when in solid form,” is not considered a deleterious substance. The NOW also had several questions for CN, including the following: Is the coal damaging for the endangered turtles? How much will the cleanup cost? Does CN have the money to cover it? Silver Creek runs alongside a short stretch of the railway tracks on Government Street, where
the derailment occurred. CN attributed the derailment to a beaver dam that breached in heavy rains, and the subsequent washout eroded the railway embankment, causing the accident. The NOW asked if CN knew about the beaver dam ahead of time and wanted to dismantle it, but CN spokesperson Emily Hamer didn’t know, and the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations has no record of CN applying for permission to remove or maintain a beaver dam. In an emailed statement to the NOW, Hamer said the company is working with the Environment Ministry to assess the impact and is committed to “all measures possible to remediate the impact of the coal spill into the waterways.” According to Hamer, CN began the environmental survey of Silver Creek, Burnaby Lake and the Brunette River on Thursday, Jan. 16, five days after the spill. (The delay was caused by bad weather, which left the ground too saturated to start the
survey.) The work includes “measuring and documenting the location and quantity of coal deposition, collecting information on habitat characteristics of each channel and collecting other relevant information which may aid in assessing the feasibility of practical solutions for the removal of coal accumulations,” Hamer wrote. CN still doesn’t know how much coal was spilled, but Hamer said that would be determined once the environmental survey was complete. “The data collected identifying where the coal was deposited, how much was deposited and the impact on aquatic life will be used to develop a response plan for recovery,” she wrote. As for the fish in Silver Creek, Fisheries and Oceans Canada was not onsite following the spill. Instead, Environment Canada is monitoring the situation to determine if there are any violations of federal environmental legislation, including the pollution provisions of the Fisheries Act. Christine Ensing, an
environmental services officer with the City of Burnaby, also checked the site but said she didn’t have much to say at this point. “We are definitely involved, and they are keeping us in the loop with
what they are doing, and they are moving forward,” she told the NOW. Ensing pointed out that CN is responsible for the cleanup and whatever comes out of the company’s assessment will include issues to do with the fish
and the turtles. She also advised people to stay out of the creek, to avoid disturbing salmon eggs, as the waterway is habitat to spawning salmon. Follow Jennifer on Twitter, @jennifermoreau

Transit sexual offences increased last year Stefania Seccia staff reporter
The year 2013 wasn’t a particularly safe one on public transit, as there were more than 100 sexual offences reported on public traffic – but Transit Police, as well as advocates, hope to change that. Sexual offences include voyeurism, indecent acts and inappropriate touching, among others. In the first half of 2013, there were 57 reported offences, and 75 were reported in the last six months, according to Anne Drennan, Transit Police spokesperson. “We know it’s probably around one in 10, or 10 per cent, of all sexual offences on transit are reported,” Drennan noted. “The statistics, while concerning because they’re going up, are not really telling the true story or giving a clear picture since we know there are so many unreported offences.” Drennan said there’s no geographic area in particular that is prone to incidents, because predators are mobile when using the system. “It can happen anywhere,” she told the NOW. “They can find somebody they think is a vulnerable target anywhere along the system riding SkyTrain, the Canada Line, it can just happen anywhere.” Although Transit Police are alarmed over the rise in offences, it’s still a relatively small number compared to the high number of people who ride the rails each year, which is around one million, Drennan said. Transit Police Sgt. Wendy Hawthorne has been watching out for people’s safety on transit for the last 30 years, and she says sexual offences have been a constant issue. “It’s always a constant,” Hawthorne said, when asked if sexual incidents have

Since her blog sharing harassment stoin reporting has increased exponentially.” Hawthorne was a speaker at the recent women transforming cities café meeting at the University of British Columbia, which addressed sexual assault, safety and public transit. She said the attendance was high and diverse. “We have such a wonderful transit system, and I don’t think sometimes we know how fortunate we are,” she said. “At the end of the day, our main goal is to make sure people have a safe ride, free of harassment and feel comfortable. They’re entitled to that.” Simon Fraser University student Katie Nordgren, and co-creator of the popular blog, Harassment on TransLink, was also a speaker at the UBC event on Jan. 13. She said many ideas about how to tackle transit safety were brainstormed by the almost 50 people who came. “We were … floating ideas on how we can bring this to our municipal governments,” Nordgren told the NOW. “How can we make this a worthy issue in all

She said the Transit Police monitor her blog to stay on top of issues that have arisen, as well. “There was a submitter who alluded to having taken photographs of somebody who harassed her or a friend,” Nordgren said, saying a constable saw the story and asked to get in touch with the person. “She decided to provide the photos to the police, … hopefully it will result in a conviction.” Transit Police can be instantly notified of an issue, sexual or otherwise, happening on transit by texting 877-777 with the information.

New Heights: Peter Censorio developed the new Altezza building, a mixed-use property on Hastings Street. The building is an example of the changing face of the neighbourhood – and the city itself.
Heights a sign of what’s to come Janaya Fuller-Evans
The past year was one of change and future planning for businesses in Burnaby, as the city’s town centres geared up for major shifts in the coming decade. While the focus in Brentwood, Lougheed, Edmonds and Metrotown was on future developments, one neighbourhood has seen a great deal of change already – Burnaby Heights. The city changed a zoning bylaw in the Heights about five years ago to allow for some mixed residential and commercial developments, and that shift has started to change the face of the neighbourhood. “Even so, it’s going to take another five to 10 years to really see it blossom into where there’s no gaps,” said Isabel Kolic, executive director for the Heights Merchants Association. A mixed-use development at Madison Avenue and Hastings Street is now under construction, and there are plans for a mixeduse development across from Happy Honda in the eastern end of the Heights. But already, the changes can be seen with buildings such as the Tramonto at 4365 Hastings St. and the Altezza building at

return to the issue of the HOV lane along Hastings Street, she said. “We’ll continue to advocate for the removal of the HOV lane and restore a quieter and more friendly walking environment of the Heights,” she said. As the Heights goes through this transition phase, it may be a sign of what’s to come in the city’s four town centres. Edmonds has its new community centre, and plans are moving forward for a major mixeduse development at the site of the current Value Village. Construction is underway at Brentwood Town Centre and at Station Square in Metrotown, with plans to make the centres mixed-use developments as well, creating more walkable community space instead of the walledin malls of the ‘80s and ‘90s. And Shape Properties, which owns Lougheed Town Centre as well as Brentwood, is in the preliminary planning stages for Lougheed, with an ambitious plan to create the “public heart” of the community with a mixeduse development on the site. While the four centres are in the beginning stages of these plans, the recent changes in the Heights offer a smaller-scale glimpse of how they may play out.

Celebrity spotted at Lougheed
OK, there haven’t been any celebrity sightings at Lougheed just yet. But an athlete-endorsed gym will be opening at the shopping centre this year, so who knows who might show up?
Steve Nash Fitness World is opening at Lougheed Town Centre sometime this year, according to the centre’s website. Five stores have either relocated or closed to make way for the 18,000square-foot fitness centre. For more information, go to www.lougheedtown centre.com, and check the What’s New section.
New enviro regulations
Confused by the province’s new environmental regulations? The Burnaby Board of Trade is hosting an info session on Feb. 5 to help businesses navigate registering with the new stewardship agency, Multi Material B.C. As of May, all businesses that distribute printed paper and packaging have to register with the agency and report the amount of paper and packaging they distribute, as well as pay fees to cover recycling
costs, according to the board’s website. The agency’s managing director, Allen Langdon, will speak at the session, which takes place from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown. The session is $10 for members and $25 for nonmembers. To register, call 604-4120100, email email@example.com or go to the events section of the board’s website, bbot.ca.

Baja By Day
by Sarah Bancroft
In Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, this year’s trends include green margaritas, Mezcal tastings, and parrotfish at the ceviche bar.
Greeted with a refreshing cilantro margarita, you know you’ve arrived in style at Esparanza Resort. Airy rooms have private outdoor hot tubs or hammocks, and the pool extends infinity-style over the beach. With a focus on health and wellness, complimentary breakfast includes chlorophyll water (another trend we saw this year) which we highly recommend following the invigorating morning yoga or bootcamp on the beach. www.esperanzaresort.com
While it is tempting to stay seaside, venturing inland to Flora Farms for a cooking class is a highly recommended diversion. Wander the manicured paths among the organic vegetables, tour the gorgeous straw-bale Culinary Cottages for purchase or rent, and take a class in the open air kitchen where you might learn to make corn tortillas and authentic salsa from a Mexican chef. In high season, there are movie nights where classic films are played on large screens and the wood-burning pizza oven is put to good use. www.flora-farms.com
The Auriga Spa greets you with a refreshing green smoothie and healthy snacks determined by the phase of the moon. Start in The Grotto, where you cycle between sauna, steam and ice rooms, quenching your skin with fresh aloe vera leaves. A foot bath with fresh herbs follows, in keeping with the spa’s philosophy of traditional folk healing methods, or “curanderismo.” A local healer can be called upon, or book with one of the talented massage therapists in a private room overlooking a saltwater meditation pool. At Capella Hotel, www.auriga-spa.com Read our full Cabo San Lucas itinerary at www.vitamindaily.com
Yes, They’re Real by Sara Samson
Body By Cameron
by Sara Samson
In her new tome, The Body Book, Cameron Diaz shares her experiences for a healthier, happier, fitter life. If you’re like us, fake eyelashes are usually reserved for special events (think hot dates and girls’ night out), mostly because it’s tedious to apply and remove them. But thanks to Benefit’s They’re Real mascara we are rocking the big, beautiful lash look daily.
And we must say, it’s actually a breath of fresh air from the sometimes eye-rolling, out-of-touch celebrity lifestyle books. Diaz has an enviable body and an effortless California-girl thing about her so we were intrigued to find out her secrets.
This miracle mascara is basically an every-day substitute for fake eyelashes and packs a double punch with volume and length. We also love the tiny bristles on the edge of the brush to get those small inner lashes.
Thankfully, we didn’t find suggestions for crash diets or ridiculous detox cleanses, but instead helpful, realistic advice like how to sneak in exercise throughout your day and chugging a huge glass of lemon water first thing in the morning to kick start your day.
Now those peepers pop. $29 at Sephora.
Beauty and brains. $15.50 at Indigo.
B is for Basics
Lunch on the Green
While we all love fancy kid’s clothing, the most frequently worn items always end up being the simple, comfy ones.
Head over to the West End’s Nicola Street, with its charming heritage homes and boutiques, then stop for a lunch at the neighbourhood’s newest resident, the Greenhorn Espresso Bar. From the outside it blends in with the surrounding shops, but step inside and the high ceilings, massive red chandelier, distressed wood tables and stylish crowd scream Portland-cool.

Looking for a new spot for ladies day out?
Little B is Nicole Bridger’s first foray into childrenswear, and like her main collection, this line features easy designer jersey pieces manufactured in Vancouver in eco fabrics made from birch trees and eucalyptus plants. We like the dark grey Hannah dress ($42) worn with the Yasi legging ($22) – perfect with a winter boot and chunky knit during the day, or dressed up with a pretty cardigan and a sparkly ballerina flat for an afternoon party. You’ll be able to stretch her wardrobe further by pairing these great basics pieces with a variety of accessories she’ll be in your jewellery box before you know it. Shop Little B at Nicole Bridger, 2151 W Fourth Ave., Vancouver, 604-730-1129 or online at http://nicolebridger.com
The light menu – handwritten on large rolls of brown paper – is classic with a twist: Belgian waffles with persimmon compote, sourdough grilled cheese with Emmental, oven-roasted tomatoes, basil and feta, plus baked goods including apricot pumpkin seed cookies. After lunch, grab a Moja coffee to go and pop up to the second floor for a peek at the shop’s art gallery featuring antique bicycle installations. Now that’s a one stop shop. 994 Nicola Street, Vancouver, 604-428-2912, www.greenhorncafe.com

Find your wellsprings of inspiration HEALTHWISE
Dr. Davidicus Wong
hange is inevitable though sometimes invisible. Our bodies change from moment to moment. At every point in time, cells are dying and being replaced. Except in times of acute illness, we think of our bodies as stable, but we are constantly being refreshed. So when you are turning 40, 60 or 80, consider your age to be an inaccurate number. The majority of the cells in your body are much younger. Some are under a day old. None of your red blood cells are over three months old. Acceptance is just one aspect of coping with change. The most important is the recognition of our personal ability to be agents of positive change. I spend much of my time guiding patients in gaining control over their lives. Every journey begins with the first step, and every significant improvement in your life begins with one small change. Most us have a pretty good idea about what we would like to improve in our health habits, perhaps becoming more active, trying a new sport, making better food choices, quit-
ting smoking or reducing alcohol. Some of us may even recognize that we should tend more to our relationships and stop repeating maladaptive patterns of behaviour. Too often we hold back. We don’t take the first steps, or we falter and give up before we make significant progress. We all need the jumpstart of inspiration with fresh infusions to keep us moving towards living a more positive and healthy life. Last week, we celebrated Inspiration Day at Century House in New Westminster. I invite you to celebrate your own Inspiration Week by reflecting on seven wellsprings of inspiration. 1. Heroes: Joseph Campbell, famed mythologist and author of The Hero’s Journey, recognized that the stories about the bigger-than-life characters of mythology and our great religions reflected the journey we all take in life. The challenges we face and the call to have courage and do the right thing are reflected in many of those stories. 2. Models of Human Achievement: Great figures in history have set the bar high and show us what a human being can achieve. We remain in awe when listening to Beethoven, Mozart and Bach, read Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets, and
look upon great works of art. 3. Everyday Heroes: While the giants of the past may make us feel like puny underachievers, we have heroes among us each day. These are ordinary people like you and me who choose to do extraordinary things. They express courage and perseverance in the face of overwhelming adversity or perform acts of generosity and compassion. 4. The Inspiring People in Your Personal Life: Think about the special people from your past
who have made a positive difference in your life. This may include your parents, teachers, mentors and friends. My best friends tell me the truth when I need to hear it and remind me of my greatest aspirations. 5. Those We Serve: My patients have made me a better doctor. Their trust and confidence in me inspired me to be the best physician I can be. My golden rule of medicine is to treat each patient with the care I would expect for my family. My children have
taught me humility and what matters most in life. Becoming a parent inspired me to be the best person I can be. Teaching medical students and residents constantly renews my enthusiasm for our calling. While sharing both my knowledge and my enthusiasm, I benefit from their energy and see a positive future for medicine. 6. Your Calling: Your calling is the intersection of your passions, talents, values and the needs of the world. Are you engaged in what you love
YOUR HEALTH President’s own story: 15 years ago I started to have arthritis, prostate, kidney, snoring and sleep apnea problems, which were all helped quickly with natural health products. I made it my life’s purpose to help others. Nick A. Jerch
NPN 80042283 Helps to relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis.
to do? Are your actions, words and beliefs aligned? What can you do today to help someone else and make a positive difference in your world? 7 Love: Love, kindness, compassion and goodwill come in many forms. The most inspiring acts are borne of genuine unconditional love. I measure the success of the day by how well I have loved others. At the end of the day and at the end of life, that’s all that really matters. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician at Primecare Medical.

Taking on a challenge: A Burnaby/New Westminster ringette player, in black, gets the better of a Lower Mainland AA Select defender in an under-16 matchup at Moody Park Arena last Saturday.
Top marks for Clan at UW Simon Fraser University senior Sarah Sawatzky opened the indoor track and field season with an NCAA-leading time at the University of Washington Indoor Preview last weekend. Sawatzky chalked up a personal and Division II-best time of 2:09.42 in the women’s 800 metres at the indoor meet in Seattle. Senior Kirsten Allen ran a Great Northwest conference-leading time and a personal-best of 5:03.97 in the mile. Also running a best time was Emma Chasdey, who shaved 28 seconds off her personal best in the 3,000m with a 10:17.24 clocking, a time that was good enough to qualify her for the conference meet. In field, junior Robyn Broomfield recorded a conference-leading and personal best jump of 11.18m in the triple jump. Freshman Ella Brown made her SFU debut, placing second in the event with a leap of 11.13m. The Clan men were led by freshmen Oliver Jorgensen, with a personal-best time of 8:32.84 in the 3,000m. Following closely behind was senior James Young
in a new PB time of 8:36.58. Both men will represent the Clan at the conference meet. In the mile, Clan runners Travis Vugteveen and Cameron Proceviat of Burnaby both recorded personal bests in a very competitive race, as Vugteveen posted a time of 4:18.24, placing him second in his section, while Proceviat ran a time of 4:19.33. Freshmen Daniel Kelloway made his SFU debut a memorable one, finishing first in a conference-leading time of 49.42 in the men’s 400m. Freshmen Joel Webster recorded a time of 50.27 in the metric quarter mile and 22.39 in the 200m. Christopher More O’Ferrall was close behind, running the 400m in 50.54 and the 200m in 22.63. In the field, the Clan men were led by sophomore Jerry He, who placed third in the long jump. Freshman Vladislav Moldavanov also made a solid debut, jumping with a leap of 13.87m in the triple jump. Simon Fraser will be back in action on Jan. 31 at the University of Washington Invitational.
The Northwest Giants are back in a share of first place following the B.C. major midget all-star weekend in Langley. Giants’ rookie Justin Szeto scored two goals, including his 20th of the season to lift the Burnabybased club to a 4-1 win over the North Island Silvertips on Saturday. Defenceman Dante Fabbro counted a fourpoint effort on Sunday to pace the Giants to a 7-2 win in the weekend series rematch. Fabbro also tallied a pair of goals for Team White in the league’s annual all-star showcase matchup at the George Preston rec centre in Langley on Jan. 17. The wins, coupled with the Okanagan’s 4-3 upset loss to Fraser Valley, drew the Giants even with the Rockets in the standings, both with identical 12-4-1 records. League scoring leader, Colton Kerfoot, got the Giants out to an early firstperiod lead in the opening game. Szeto potted what proved to be the eventual game-winner from Quinn Thompson just minutes later with his first of back-to-back markers. Thompson assisted on the Giants’ first three goals of the game. In the later game, Fabbro, who leads all defencemen in overall league scoring, scored his 14th goal of the campaign while adding three helpers as the Giants silenced a 2-2 first-period scoreline with five unanswered goals. “We didn’t get the outcome I thought we deserved (at the Mac’s tournament). I think that’s why (the players) came back with a spark,” said Giants coach Clint Thornton. The Giants are at the Burnaby Winter Club on Saturday against thirdplace Valley West Hawks. Puck drops at 7:45 p.m. The two teams go at it again on Sunday at the Langley Events Centre at 3:30 p.m.

BWC wins B at Reid tourney
Rugby Canada test match at Swangard two World Cups. In 2011, we had to play some of our best rugby in the last 15 minutes or so to come back to tie them. Sadly though, they’ve beat us twice as well. I’m looking forward to a long-awaited return fixture,” said Sinclair in a Rugby Canada press release. “We’ve been a very different beast when playing in Canada, and it’ll be exciting to get back to the Vancouver area and play a game on the West Coast. There’s been quite a rivalry building over the years with Japan, so it’ll be good to get our first win against them in a while on home soil.” The Pacific Nations Cup is an important part of the International Rugby Board’s strategic development program for emerging rugby nations like Canada, Fiji Samoa and Japan. Extra seats will be added to the 4,500-seat stadium in Burnaby to accommodate the expected large crowd. Canada has not played Japan on home turf since 2000 in Markham, Ont. tberridge@burnabynow. com
