24-hour guard put on school Cayley Dobie staff reporter
A security guard stands watch 24 hours a day, seven days a week, over the old Riverside Elementary School after a fire was deliberately set there late last year. Riverside Elementary, at 7855 Meadow Ave. in south Burnaby, was closed in 1982 after a decline in enrolment in the area. Until a few years ago, the district was renting the facility to a private school, but when that agreement ended the school became a storage facility for equipment, furniture and supplies, according to Greg Frank, secretary-treasurer of the Burnaby school district. “The site has also been used by the district for training purposes,” Frank wrote in an email to the NOW. The school site remained relatively undisturbed until Oct. 12, when the Burnaby Fire Department was alerted by the school district that a fire had broken out inside the building. “(Firefighters) obtained keys for the front of the building from a security guard, (and the) door was opened,” said assistant fire chief Greg Mervin. The fire, which was relatively small, started in one of the rooms inside the old school, and fire crews were able to contain

The property is owned by the city and, its future will be determined by the city. it to that area quickly, Mervin added. “It was suspicious … but I don’t have anything, like the cause or anything,” he said. Both the Burnaby RCMP and fire officials told the NOW they have been called on several occasions to the Riverside neighbourhood, by residents of the quiet, farming community, but most of the calls end up being false alarms. According to Frank, the district is aware that squatters may be living in the area and possibly using the school as shelter.
“We are aware that homeless people may be present in the surrounding area and occasionally may enter our site,” Frank said in his email. According to Lou Pelletier, director of planning and building for the City of Burnaby, the school site is currently “under the jurisdiction, control and occupancy” of the school district, but the property itself is actually owned by the city. Eventually, when the district no longer needs the site, it will be reclaimed by the city.
“Should the school district conclude its use of the property, it would return to the city as part of our open space and parklands,” Pelletier said in an email. Pelletier said he was not at liberty to discuss what type of financial arrangement the city has with the district concerning the Riverside property. “The additional security on site is temporary as we work through details and options with our insurance provider. The site will eventually be reclaimed by the city of Burnaby for other purposes,” he added.
Chief says new plan has delayed medical help Stefania Seccia staff reporter
A pregnant woman in her first or second trimester who is hemorrhaging or having just miscarried and called 911 is one of the 74 scenarios that has been downgraded
from a “hot” to “cold” response by the B.C. Ambulance Service. The Burnaby Fire Department recently released a report outlining how the changes impacted its work for the first three-and-a-half months, which overall led to longer wait times for ambulances by
firefighters. Last October, the B.C. Ambulance Service changed 74 services from Code 3 to Code 2 in its resource allocation plan. The move changes the response from lights and sirens to routine calls. “Firsthand experience of (fire
department) personnel has shown that the new (resource allocation plan) has resulted in delayed ambulance response to medical incidents in Burnaby,” Doug McDonald, Burnaby’s fire chief, said in his report. For the first three months, fire-

Edmonds community residents are attempting to freeze time, at least for the next 26 years. In a joint project by the City of Burnaby and the Edmonds Seniors Society, dozens of items collected from residents will be part of a time capsule that won’t be opened until 2040. “It came about when the city decided to build a brand new community centre,” Laurie Woolley, Burnaby’s coordinator of seniors services, told the NOW. “When the seniors were told they would be relocating from the original community centre to the brand new, shiny centre, we recognized that they never really did anything to capture their history and memorialize it in any way.” Today, the time capsule will be ceremoniously locked inside the Edmonds Community Centre near the Edmonds Street entrance. “The city runs the centre, but the seniors have an imagination too, and they made it a home away from home,” Woolley said. “We wanted to make sure that wasn’t forgotten.” Ernie Fernandez, president of the Edmonds Seniors Society, said more than 40 years of history will be in the capsule. “The place is just going so fast right now,” he said of the new centre. “It’s only been open for several months and we’ve doubled our membership activities. Baby boomers are all active in

Items include pens, pins, newspaper clippings and a 25foot collage with pictures, stamps and other items to commemorate the last 40 years. “A lot of the stuff was very interesting to look at,” he added.

“Some of those members are still alive today, and looking at the age difference, what you look like 40 years ago, was very interesting.” For the city, it’s been a fun experience to organize the time capsule as a way to celebrate the community, according to Dave Ellenwood, director of parks and recreation. “You never know what’s going to be a really interesting part,”
Burnaby is having a slow start with building permits this year – down by about $63 million compared to this time last year. The total value of building permits for February 2014 sits at about $26 million, according to a report from the planning and building department. But this time last year, building permits
totaled more than $89 million for February. “Larger permits have yet to come in this year, and last year we had a couple of large permits,” Lou Pelletier, director of planning and building, said at the March 10 council meeting. “We expect to see those coming forward in the next few reports, as well.” Pelletier said he expects the numbers to fluctuate quite a bit from period to period, depending on future permit sizes. In 2013, Burnaby almost had a recordbreaking year with permits with a total of 1,674 permits, valued at more than $674 million. By July 2013, permits already totaled more than $427 million. The highest year for permits in Burnaby
Visions* Superstore* London Drugs* Buy Low Foods* Princess Auto* Fair Market* * not in all areas
was in 2008, boasting more than $790 million in value by the end of that year. So far for 2014, there have been 247 permits at a value of more than $57 million. According to the Vancouver Regional Construction Association, building permits dipped across the board last December by 39 per cent. It closed out by five per cent in 2013, compared to 2012 values. Total permit values in the Lower Mainland and southwest region in December fell to $454.8 million compared to $740.2 million in November 2013. The association’s forecast for 2014 is that building permits will come close to 2013 levels, with a chance of a small gain.

Brentwood skyscraper on hold – for now Council tables plans until residents’ issues can be addressed Stefania Seccia staff reporter
Council has pressed pause on moving Brentwood Town Centre’s first proposed 53-storey tower forward, at least until residents’ issues are addressed. At the March 3 meeting, Burnaby city council tabled Shape Properties’, the owners of Brentwood mall, rezoning application for a 53-storey tower atop a three-storey commercial podium at the corner of Willingdon Avenue and Halifax Street. The application was due to receive second reading at that meeting. Mayor Derek Corrigan told the Burnaby NOW that council tabled the proposal so staff could address the issues brought up at a recent public hearing. “We’re going to wait for the report,” he said. “We don’t want to move along yet until staff responds to the issues raised by the public.” On Feb. 25, city hall’s council chambers were packed with residents to discuss the tower’s rezoning application. At least 100 people attended
and raised various issues including rat-runners, parking and traffic problems. Overall, most speakers favoured Brentwood mall’s redevelopment. As the Burnaby NOW previously reported, the 53-storey tower is expected to have 591 apartment units. About 300 of the units will be built for the purpose of being rented, which will be owned and operated by the developer. The first 25 floors will be for rental units, the upper 27 floors will be strata, and there will also be 30 adaptable units. The minimum unit size for the one-bedroom units will be 538 square feet, while other smaller one-bedroom units are intended to “provide a level of affordability for new home ownership and rental,” a city staff report states. The tower proposal includes a 14,600-square-foot indoor area with a fitness facility, media room, games room, business and study centre, music room, kitchen and dining area. There’s also an outdoor amenity area with a fitness space, seating, children’s play area, barbecue area and rooftop landscaping. “A significant public art piece will be provided at the entrance to the west mews off Halifax

Bonsor rec complex set for major upgrade Burnaby council has approved a renovation for the upper floor of the Bonsor Recreation Complex to the tune of $1.3 million. The upgrade to the upper floor level is expected to serve an additional 2,000 people a week, or about 100,000 a year, according to a city staff report. Last year, the Bonsor 55-plus
Society relocated from the upper floor of the centre to the new Bonsor 55-plus Centre on Bennett Street. The Bonsor facility has already undergone two renovation projects in the last several years, including converting a restaurant into a cardio space and the conversion of two racquetball courts
into a yoga studio and multi-purpose room. The space on the upper floor totals about 3,340 square feet, which will expand to create more recreational opportunities for community members, according to the report. There will be a 2,000-sq.-ft. room with a sprung wood floor
for dance programs, fitness classes and social events, which looks out onto the outside deck. There will also be an 800-sq.-ft. room for a spin cycling studio, plus two sound music studios of 100 sq. ft. each, along with a comfortable waiting area for community members. The city undertook a consulta-
tion process with existing patrons at the centre, and the feedback supported staff’s direction, the report states. The estimated construction costs are expected to be about $1.1 million, with additional fees for permits, furnishing, equipment and other costs. – Stefania Seccia

IN MY OPINION
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Mine should get the go-ahead Dear Editor:
Why have we not learned the painful lessons of the past? The B.C. NDP government in the 1970s foolishly shut down the entire B.C. mining industry, and it has taken several generations to recover. Now, just as things were looking bright, the federal Conservative government – which should know better – has sent an equally chilling message of negativity to the investment community by saying “no” to the Prosperity mine. How many other well-planned mining projects in B.C. are now on uncertain ground because of the negative signal that’s been sent? The Prosperity mine was a beacon of hope to thousands of peo-
ple and their families in the Cariboo region and beyond. This foolish, ill-informed decision must be reconsidered and approval given to this mine. Every possible environmental precaution is in place. There is no reason on earth to say “no” to it. Donald Leung, Burnaby

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Rail brings its own hazards continued from page 6
means of transporting oil through our communities: the railroad. Significantly, shipping oil by rail it doesn’t require an assessment process, much less anyone’s approval. In point of fact, railway tanker cars are increasingly being used to ship oil. The CEO of Imperial Oil, Rich Kruger, recently put it this way: “While pipelines are the most efficient way to transport crude oil and petroleum products, other modes of transport such as rail will be needed. I refer to them primarily as kind of bridging agents until additional pipelines are in place and ultimately an insurance policy if pipelines don’t come about.” To underscore the point, Imperial Oil (a subsidiary of Exxon Mobile Corp.) has investments in rail stock. Moreover, the company is constructing a rail terminal near Edmonton designed to handle 100,000 barrels a day initially but capable of expanding to 250,000 barrels a day. Its partner in the project is Kinder Morgan. Shipping oil by rail, of course, triggers images of the July 2013 Lac-Megantic disaster. And if time and geography tended to blunt its impact on our lives, the January 2014 derailment that dumped a large amount of coal into a Burnaby creek was a sharp reminder that rail accidents can happen anytime anywhere. It should also remind us that the oil
sands companies are a determined lot. Whether by pipe or rail or both, if it means going through our communities to get bitumen to market, that’s exactly what they will try to do. And that, of course, will likely give rise to yet another public-based struggle. Bill Brassington, Burnaby
Get native affairs in order Dear Editor:
Re: Tragic lessons from teen’s death, Opinion, Burnaby NOW, Feb. 12. It is obvious to anyone reading the Opinion page that Keith Baldrey has once again knocked the ball out of the ballpark as it concerns the problem of child welfare as it occurs (or doesn’t) on native reserves. The problem with thuggery on most reserves across Canada (from New Brunswick through Caledonia and border reserves in southern Ontario and Quebec) and the latest movements of drugs and guns and illegal persons revealed in recent stories in the national papers is proof that the politically correct actions – or rather, lack thereof – have proven fatal to the weakest members of their society. It is proven that tribal leaders in most of the reserves are incapable of handling the huge amounts of money made available to them and that they need to be democratized in order to put a stop to the incessant criminality those systems encourage. Larry Bennett, Burnaby
Newspapers: Another tough blow continued from page 6
the back of a fragile industry still challenged to stay standing. While our readership is stronger than ever, British Columbia’s newspapers are struggling financially. Having Victoria force a $14-million tax on newspapers in the current environment looks an awful lot like someone throwing an anchor to a drowning person. Sadly, every single newspaper, from large regional dailies to the smallest community weekly, in every part of the province, will be impacted. Indeed, there is no greater threat to the vibrancy of British Columbia’s newspaper industry today than the government’s new recycling policy. Think about that for a minute while enjoying your next read. It is your daily newspaper, your community weekly, that is at risk here.
But the new recycling regime will not only cause a wave of damage and job losses across newsrooms everywhere, it will also have an impact on many other businesses, as well as thousands of municipal jobs that will be put at risk with the loss of local decision making for our recycling programs. And, don’t believe for a minute that this will somehow help B.C. families. The reality is that these costs will be passed on to consumers, who will now pay for the cost of recycling every time they have a box of pizza delivered, pick up a carton of milk, or buy a roll of toilet paper. The government still hasn’t said what was so wrong with the current blue box program that they could only fix it by hurting local businesses and costing hard-working people their jobs. Yet, in spite of hav-
ing no clear rationale, the province seems intent on gambling away the success of the blue box with an experiment in something they like to call “extended producer responsibility.” The ironic truth, of course, is that the government’s new hands-off approach actually represents an abdication of responsibility, not its extension. As a result, decisions about nearly every aspect of our recycling system will be handed over to a small group of big businesses based thousands of kilometres east of the Rockies. British Columbia’s environment minister may think that’s just fine, but I suspect the people of British Columbia might have a different opinion. Peter Kvarnstrom is chair of the Canadian Newspaper Association and president of B.C. operations for Glacier Media Group.

Illegal dentist pleads guilty to tax evasion charges
The saga of Tung Sheng (David) Wu continued last week as he plead guilty to tax evasion charges. On March 7, the Canada Revenue Agency announced that Wu, a dentist who was found practising illegally in Burnaby, plead guilty to tax evasion and is now
required by law to repay $33,000 to the federal government. The fines represent 75 per cent of the income taxes Wu failed to pay while practising dentistry illegally from 2009 through to 2012, which amounted to nearly $238,000, according to a media release from the Canada Revenue
Agency. “The amounts were calculated using Wu’s patient charts, which recorded both the dental treatment provided and the amount he charged to the patient, as well as when the patients paid him,” the release stated. As previously reported, Wu
turned himself in to Toronto Police in November after being on the run since August. The College of Dental Surgeons of B.C. began investigating the Burnaby dentist after learning he had continued to practise despite having an injunction filed against him in 2003, which forbade him from practis-
ing. Wu was sentenced to three months in jail in provincial court for his actions. The college believes Wu had about 1,500 patients while he was practising dentistry illegally from the basement of his Burnaby home. – Cayley Dobie

Soil tests show all clear for Stoney Creek School Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Good news for parents of Stoney Creek Elementary students: soil testing results show there’s nothing in the ground related to the Kinder Morgan oil pipeline that runs beneath the school property. The news should come as a relief to staff and parents, who were raising concerns about the pipeline’s proximity. “We are pleased that Kinder Morgan has undertaken these tests to demonstrate Stoney Creek is a safe environment,” wrote principal David Starr in a letter to parents. As previously reported in the NOW, Kinder Morgan was taking soil samples at Stoney Creek Elementary last July, at the behest of the Burnaby school district.
Canada Post Is Cutting Services To 5 Million Homes! How Will This Affect You?
Kinder Morgan’s oil pipeline, which has been in place since the 1950s, runs under the property at Stoney Creek and beneath a community garden at the school. Starr’s letter states that SNC Lavalin, hired by Kinder Morgan, took 21 soil samples on the school grounds, from multiple depths and areas. There was only one sample showing a high level of hydrocarbons that exceeded the federal standards for protecting freshwater aquatic life. The results of that one sample were not connected to the pipeline; the hydrocarbons seem to be coming from some kind of woody debris or burnt wood, according to the report. To see Starr’s letter and the testing report, go to Jennifer Moreau’s blog at www. burnabynow.com.

CANADA POST TOWN HALL
Teachers say yes to strike Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
B.C.’s teachers may have voted in favour of a strike, but Burnaby classrooms shouldn’t be closing anytime soon. In a provincewide B.C. Teachers’ Federation vote held late last week, nearly 90 per cent voted in favour of job action, but the president of the Burnaby Teachers’ Association says the vote will be used to pressure the provincial government. “The vote supports our bargaining team and puts pressure on the government to drop a number of concessions they’ve put on the table,” said association president James Sanyshyn. “Hopefully, now that can start happening.”
The BCTF and the provincial government are in the midst of legal wranglings while bargaining over a new collective agreement. A recent court case found the province had unconstitutionally violated teachers’ bargaining rights, but the province has appealed. Class size and composition (meaning the number of special needs students in each class) have been sticking points in the ongoing dispute. According to the BCTF, if and when there is job action, it will not include closing schools, withdrawal from extra curricular activities or affecting report cards and communication with parents – at least not initially.
Man injured in shooting
A man suffering from a bullet wound gave diners quite a shock when he stumbled into a Vancouver restaurant on March 8. According to the Vancouver Police Department, a 33-year-old Burnaby man was shot while sitting in a car on 35th Avenue near Victoria Drive at about 9:30 p.m. Police say the victim
was in his vehicle when an unknown man approached and shot several bullets into the vehicle before running off, a media release explained. The victim walked over to a nearby restaurant on Victoria Drive, and the patrons inside called 911. The victim was taken to hospital and underwent surgery.
Investigators believe the shooting was a targeted incident and confirmed the victim is known to police. The investigation is ongoing, and so far no arrests have been made. Anyone with information is asked to call the Vancouver police at 604717-2541 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. – Cayley Dobie

Exploring musical theatre’s depths Julie MacLellan staff reporter
It seems, perhaps, an unlikely subject for a musical: the story of a cave explorer in 1925 Kentucky who becomes trapped while navigating an underground network he hopes to develop into a tourist attraction. His family and fellow cavers begin a rescue attempt, while a mob of reporters gathers at the scene in one of America’s first nation-wide media frenzies. That musical is Adam Guettel’s acclaimed Floyd Collins – which is being brought to the Vancouver stage by Patrick Street Productions, a born-in-Burnaby theatre company that’s been making a name for itself for bringing high-quality professional musical theatre to the Vancouver stage. It opened March 11 and is onstage at the York Theatre until March 30. The musical premiered off-Broadway in 1996, but Patrick Street’s staging is the first time it will be seen in Vancouver. “We have wanted to stage Floyd Collins in Vancouver for many years; we hear the future of musical theatre in Adam Guettel’s nuanced and evocative score,” said Katey Wright, co-artistic producer of Patrick Street, in a press release. This year the show has special meaning for the company, since it opened its season in February with a Rodgers and Hammerstein revue, Out of a Dream. Guettel is the grandson of Richard Rodgers. “We just love the balance between the two shows and the lineage between Richard Rodgers and Adam Guettel,” said Peter Jorgensen, Wright’s husband and co-artistic producer, in an interview with the Burnaby NOW. The former Burnaby residents (they now live in New Westminster) have been drawn to Guettel’s work before – in 2011, they staged his Light in the Piazza. Jorgensen said that work is notable for the way the music itself tells the story – something that Patrick Street strives to find in its productions. Floyd Collins, he said, is similar. “It’s got all the sophistication of The Light in the Piazza, but textually and musically it’s quite different,” Jorgensen said. Wright noted that Guettel is known for

How Glory Goes: Daren A. Herbert stars in the title role in Patrick Street Productions’ Floyd Collins, onstage at the York Theatre until March 30. Patrick Street Productions was started in Burnaby by Peter Jorgensen and Katey Wright. his ability to create an entirely new musical vocabulary for each of his shows, based on its own particular time and place. “He creates a musical universe for the story,” she noted, adding his ability to do so is “phenomenal.” “You won’t find a gluey pop ballad in the middle of a 19th-century costume drama.” The musical style draws from bluegrass and Americana, while integrating elements reminiscent of Bartok and Stravinsky. Jorgensen said the music is integral to the show. “The music just keeps unravelling in a sort of inevitable way,” he said.
Guettel himself recently came to Vancouver for an evening talk and performance, thanks to the efforts of Patrick Street – and, while in town, he worked with the cast of Floyd Collins. That cast includes a coast-to-coast network of Canadian musical theatre talent, with Daren A. Herbert in the title role. The Bermuda-born Herbert previously appeared in Patrick Street’s Piazza and has most recently been seen in Vancouver in the Arts Club’s Dreamgirls. He’s joined by CBC TV stars Kevin McNulty (of Arctic Air fame) and Krystin Pellerin (of The Republic of Doyle), along
with local and national talent including David Adams, Nathan Carroll, Graham Coffeng, Michael Culp, Jay Davis, Michael Torontow, Kris Truelsen, Andrew Wade, Ashley Wright and Katey Wright. Floyd Collins is onstage at the York Theatre, 639 Commercial Dr. in Vancouver, from March 11 to 30. Previews are on March 11 and 12 at 8 p.m., with opening night on Thursday, March 13 at 8 p.m. Tickets are priced from $19. Buy online at tickets.thecultch.com or call 604-251-1363.

But what if they don’t? Perhaps you are stressed, anxious. You take your meds, and you feel better – for a few weeks. Then you begin to feel overwhelmed again. The stress begins to build. You lack energy and enthusiasm, you can’t get going. Something just isn’t right. So it is back on the meds, and the circle goes around again.

But there might be another way. And, keeping an open mind, it might be right for you. Some medical practitioners believe that such health problems arise when an energy force which flows through the body is blocked or unbalanced. Drugs help for a time, but often they treat the symptoms, not the cause. Different cultures call this energy by different names, such as chi, prana or life force, but the concept is common around the world. The goal of practitioners of this type of medicine is to unblock or re-balance your energy force. Energy therapies include qi gong, therapeutic touch, Reiki and magnet therapy.

Most people are aware that there are enormous healing powers within the body itself. Unlocking these powers, however, is not always easy, and the result is that when we have a health problem we usually turn first to the wonder drugs of modern medicine. And they usually work.
Two local Reiki Masters and healers, Dr. Tahmineh Nikookar, a registered acupuncturist and practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Joanna Wilby, a registered massage therapist and energy healer, will be holding a clinic at Lions Gate Health Centre, 156 East 13th Street, in North Vancouver on April 5 and 6, where you can experience for yourself their “no touch” energy healing. Before and after the session photos, will be taken so that you can see for yourself the immediate corrections to your postural alignment and shifted pelvis. This method of energy healing is considered a quantum leap worldwide, as all happens in the blink of an eye. Energy healing practitioners trace or swirl their hands above the skin along specific energy pathways to change impaired energy patterns. Even without touching the skin, this has been proven to be an efficient and non-invasive way to improve the health of organs, cells, and the psyche. Moreover, according to Dr. Mehmet Oz, writing on Oprah.com and a columnist in The Province, there is evidence to suggest that this type of medicine, he says, “could be helpful in a wide variety of illnesses such as stress-related physical symptoms, pain, high blood pressure and other heart conditions.”

Pioneer in film The Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre is celebrating the work of a pioneering Japanese filmmaker. The centre is getting ready to open its exhibition Jesse Nishihata – Visual Storyteller. It’s set to run from April 1 to May 4, with an opening reception on Wednesday, April 2 from 7 to 9 p.m. A curator’s talk is set for Saturday, April 12 at 2 p.m. A press release notes that Nishihata paved the way for many artists who have followed. His extensive filmography began with “hipster journalistic work” covering Mods and Rockers in 1964 for CBC’s Other Voices series. He earned a Genie Award in 1977 for his work The Inquiry Film, which examined native rights and economic development in Canada’s north. His first film about the Japanese Canadian Second World War experience was Watari Dori: Bird of Passage, in 1973, and in 1989 he produced Justice in Our Time: How Redress Was Won. Visitors to the exhibition will have a chance to select from several of Nishihata’s films for private screenings. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday, and admission is by donation. It’s at 6688 Southoaks Cres. See www.centre. nikkeiplace.org for details, or call 604-777-7000.

Heads: you get a worse recycling program. Tails: you get to pay more for it.
The BC Government is proposing to offload the province’s world-class recycling programs, run by local municipalities, to an association led by big multi-national corporations. The idea is that we’ll get a better, more efficient program that costs taxpayers less. Unfortunately, what we’ll really end up with is anyone’s guess. The association isn’t guaranteeing that we’ll get a better program, or even one as good as the current Blue Box program already in place. Since the association is led by big businesses outside of BC, many of whom are not even headquartered in Canada, one could presume that profits will come before environmental stewardship. They usually do. They also won’t guarantee that there won’t be any job cuts here in BC. And how is this supposed to make things better for BC?
Currently, BC homeowners only pay, on average, $35 a year for curbside recycling. Under the proposed regime, you’ll pay more. Every time you bring home a pizza, buy toilet paper, or pretty much anything else that comes in a package, businesses will be passing their increased costs on to you. How much more? Well, nobody’s saying. Here’s the only thing anyone does know: we already have a Blue Box program that works, is efficient, managed locally and puts the BC environment first. So why is the BC government flipping a coin, bringing in a questionable recycling program that some of our local elected officials are already calling a “scam?” It’s time to contact Premier Clark and ask her. What’s going on here?

GETTING TO KNOW YOU
Burnaby Artists’ Guild holds exhibition and sale at Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, April 4 to 7
Larry Wright/burnaby now
Introducing … Ellen: Ellen van Eijnsbergen is the curator of Burnaby Art Gallery.
llen van Eijnsbergen is the curator of the Burnaby Art Gallery. She took over the position in September 2013. She’s the first subject of our new Fill in the Blanks series, which will introduce Burnaby NOW readers to a variety of interesting folks in the arts and entertainment community. Each subject fills out a short questionnaire, “filling in the blanks” to let us know about themselves. Without further ado, here’s Ellen … 1. I am excited to be working at the Burnaby Art Gallery (BAG). 2. I spend my time working at the BAG, participating in cultural activities, dragonboating, outrigging, swimming and relaxing with family and friends. in 3. Right now I am working on the planning exhibitions for the By Julie MacLellan BAG 2015 gallery schedule. 4.The book on my bedside table right now is Seven Thousand Ways to Listen, by Mark Nepo. 5. Three songs you’ll find on my IPod playlist are Hey, Soul Sister –Train; Pompeii – Bastille; Harvest Moon – Neil Young. 6. One work of art that inspires me is Joyfully I See Ten Caribou because it represents Inuit culture in Canada and it is on display in the Burnby Art Gallery until April 6. 7. One artist who inspires me is Gathie Falk because she is as gracious as the art that she creates. 8. My idea of a perfect day is a warm, sunny day somewhere near the ocean enjoying nature. 9. My favourite edible (or potable) treat is chocolate. 10. My guilty pleasure is chocolate. 11. My favourite vacation spot is – that’s a tough one – either Maui or southern France. 12. My favourite thing about Burnaby is the cultural facilities at Deer Lake Park: Burnaby Art Gallery, Shadbolt Centre and Burnaby Village Museum – you can visit all three in one afternoon and still have time to walk around the lake. 13. If I could sit down for coffee with anyone at all, I would choose my dad, who passed away a few years ago. 14. If I could live anywhere at any point in time, I would choose Paris, early 1900s. 15. If I could have a superpower, my superpower would be the ability to feed the world. And finally ... 16. If people want to find out more about me, they can check out burnabyartgallery.ca. Do you know someone who should be featured in Fill in the Blanks? Send an email, with details and contact information, to Julie, email@example.com.

Heights flashes back to the ’80s Carrier Week of the
Hats Off Day will celebrate with an ’80s theme to mark 30 years Stefania Seccia staff reporter
The Burnaby Heights is throwing it back to the ’80s for the 30th annual Hats Off Day parade this summer. The upcoming parade and street festival takes over Hastings Street on Saturday, June 7 and will mark its 30th anniversary, as well. Lawrence Ryan, chair of the Hats Off Day organizing committee, said the group knew it wanted to inspire people to wear costumes again like last year with the mad hatter theme. “We were looking for something, again, that people can get into, like people wearing hats. We liked that,” Ryan, also the Gilmore Community School coordinator, told the NOW. “Through discussions, we talked about different eras.”
To celebrate the anniversary, the Hats Off Day organizing committee chose the ’80s theme and styles with crimped hair, neon clothes and shoulder pads. “It’s amazing for our community group and merchants, and it’s really exciting especially when you think of the history,” he said of the event. “We’re always trying new things.” Ryan noted the parade was a grassroots movement between Gilmore school and the Heights merchants 30 years ago. The group was just planning a small event for the community and didn’t expect it to become one of the biggest annual events in Burnaby, attracting attendees from across the region. More than 50,000 people make it out every year for the colourful festival. Many Heights merchants stand out front with door prizes, giveaways, entertainment and food. “We want to invite people, not only in the Heights neighbourhood
who come out, but all the surrounding areas to come out to this great event,” he said. “It’s an amazing thing to see that many blocks all the way down Hastings Street, to sample merchants’ wares and products. It’s really fun.” The parade and display application forms are now available. The parade application deadline is March 31, and the display application is due by April 4. There will also be the one-kilometre Family Fun Run before the parade, starting around 8:30 a.m. for schools, children and families to participate in. “Mark your calendars, pull out your leg warmers, and find that orange eye shadow,” a media release states. “There’s still plenty of time to plan your very best Pac Man costume, big hairdo and Breakfast Club character.” For more information, visit www. hatsoffday.com. twitter.com/stefania_seccia

New GMC Sierra makes driving pleasurable David Chao
eneral Motors is the only manufacturer who continues to use a two-brand strategy with its line of trucks and SUVs. This is most evident with its pickup truck twins, the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra – and the strategy works. The GMC brand differentiates itself from Chevrolet by offering a slightly more premium product. As a result, the Sierra buyer is someone looking for a few more upscale features and higher level of styling than the average Silverado customer. The 2014 Sierra 1500 is all new. GMC claims that it is “the most powerful, most advanced, and most refined truck in the brand’s 111-year history.”
Like the Silverado, the Sierra doesn’t look much different from the previous generation model, but actually, there are countless changes. The biggest changes come in the form of standard features that are part of the Sierra lineup but not part of the Silverado models. On the base 1500, those include projector beam headlights, the unique three-bar style grill, exclusive wheels, and the wheel arch body mouldings. The result is a look that feels more like a Cadillac than a Chevrolet. To further that feeling, customers can opt for the Denali edition. This features a signature chrome grill, 20-inch chrome wheels, polished stainless steel exhaust, and body-colour front and rear bumpers. The overall effect is impressive, with a larger-than-life feel that screams “tough yet pol-
ished.” For the first time, double cab models now feature front-hinged rear doors with outside pull handles. This makes entering and exiting easier in tight spaces. The rear bumper has corner steps allowing you to climb into the truck bed, regardless of whether the tailgate is up or down. Once inside the bed, the four standard upper tie downs can be placed in nine different locations. Off-road enthusiasts may notice the lower chin spoiler added to the front to improve aero efficiency. GM engineers made this piece easily removable so the truck can have better ground clearance. The Sierra’s all-new cabin is the highlight of the package.
of any light truck on the market.
The new interior is a significant improvement compared to the previous generation’s version. The cabin has been simplified
with all of the controls redesigned to be larger, easy to read, and simpler to operate. The available IntelliLink infotainment system is easier to use than Ford’s system too, with reasonably intuitive feel even for
a first time user. It uses a HD, fully customizable, eight-inch touchscreen that’s responsive with no confusing menus. Special mention must be given to the trailer brake and AWD controls. Most trucks have these
located low and/or in awkward places, but in the Sierra they are high on the left side of the dash. This means they are only a few inches from your hand, making them convenient, especially in a hurry. Sierra Page 26

Experience CT’s exceptional driving performance, hybrid fuel efﬁciency, and reﬁned luxury interior.
Like its mechanical twin, the Sierra features GM’s new EcoTec3 family of engines. These consist of one V6 and two V8’s designed to increase power, torque and fuel efficiency. All three share fuel saving technologies, which include direct injection, continuously variable valve timing, and active fuel management which seamlessly deactivates cylinders during light-load driving. The 4.3-litre V6 pumps out 285 hp and 305 ft-lbs of torque, which is the most torque of any standard V6 in the segment. Step up to the 5.3-litre V8 and you’ll get 355 hp and 383 ft-lbs of torque. In 2WD trim, this engine boasts an impressive highway fuel consumption rating of 8.7L/100km, which is the best of any V8 pickup. Sitting at the top of the range is a 6.2-litre V8. It produces 420 hp and 450 ft-lbs of torque – the most horsepower and torque

The Sierra’s newly refined cabin is the best truck interior on the market. The improved engines are also appreciated. Polished look inside and out.
While the cabin is comfortable and practical, it would be nice if it received a few unique details to make the Sierra’s interior feel a bit more special than a Silverado’s. It’s a full size truck still, so it can be awkward to move around in town and to park in busy places.
GMC’s 2014 Sierra has the best truck interior available on the market. It also boasts a greatly improved engine.
The Bottom Line
The Sierra’s refinement makes driving this truck surprisingly pleasurable.

Lakers nip talent-rich Island XV Burnaby Lake Rugby Club defeated a talent-laden Castaway Wanderers 18-8 in B.C. Rugby premier division men’s play. Burnaby’s high-scoring offence was held to a pair of tries as two of the most dominant forward packs in the league slogged it out under a constant downpour and slippery conditions at Burnaby Lake-East last Saturday. “It was a pretty slow game obviously due to the wet weather but I just felt (Burnaby Lake) played well in the conditions and came away with the win,” said Castaway Wanderers and national team prop Andrew Tiedemann in a B.C. Rugby press release. Both packs had multiple representative level players with Burnaby featuring provincial reps Scott MacKay, Andrew Lackner, Anthony Luca and Micha Govorchin. Castaway’s roster included Canada national team forwards Hubert Buydens, John Phelan and Tiedemann, while its back line also boasted Bears’ standout Matt Buckley, as well as a national team centre pairing of Adam Kleeberger and Mike Scholz. Burnaby Lake dominated the opening 15 minutes with the majority of possession that resulted in two penalties inside their own half by standoff Geoff Ryan to put his side up 6-0. The Island club replied from inside Burnaby’s 22 metre line, where Buckley’s long pass skipped
Rebel girls finish AAA B.C.s with three wins Tom Berridge sports editor

along the slick grass and bounced into the hands of winger Jonny Morris, who sprinted in for a try in the corner. With momentum in their favour, Castaway’s fortunes came to an abrupt halt, when a deep kick was returned 50 metres by 2013 premier league player of the year Joe Dolesau, who offloaded to his inside centre Jeke Gotegote to run in a try for a 11-5 lead. Ryan added the extras and it was Burnaby up 13-5 at the half. The second frame was a close affair and it wasn’t until roughly 15 minutes in when Castaway fullback Chad Northcott slotted a penalty to close the gap to 13-8. Burnaby remained committed to
its attack in the forwards, and after several phases up front, the ball went wide to prop Scott Mackay, who crashed over in the corner for a try. The tally was Mackay’s third in as many games for Burnaby. “Knowing how many Canada tight-five players they had on their roster definitely got us jacked up for today’s game,” said Mackay in the release. “It was a hard-fought battle up front with their big pack and they didn’t give us anything all day. We had to work for every inch.” The two sides are idle this weekend with the premier league schedule set to resume on March 22, when league-leading Burnaby Lake and No. 2 James Bay meet at MacDonald Park on Vancouver Island.
The Burnaby South Rebels finished up the B.C. high school AAA girls’ basketball championships in ninth place overall. The 10th-ranked Rebels outlasted Penticton High School with a narrow 6967 win over eighth-seeded Lakers at the Langley Events Centre on Saturday. Ana Lukic scored the game-winning bucket with just seven seconds remaining in the game. Desiree Lister had a game-high 21 points, while player of the game Amie Morrison had 14 points, three assists and three steals. The win followed a similar nail-biting 56-54 decision over Salmon Arm on Danijela Gordic’s buzzerbeater just the day before. South lost its opening game of the championship 84-69 to eventual fifthplace-finishing Mennonite Educational Institute on March 5. Lister was South’s player of the game with 19 points and 13 rebounds.
The Grade 11 post led all Rebel players with a double-double in each of the four games played, including 17 points and 15 rebounds in the win over Salmon Arm. In all Lister scored 70 points and added 56 boards. With the loss to MEI, South was relegated to the back side of the draw, where ninth place was the best finish possible. The Rebels went on to win their last three games of the tournament, including a 73-51 win over Prince George on Day 2. Jasmine Manhas had a game-high 26 points in the win, while Morrison added 17 and Lister posted a second consecutive doubledouble, potting 13 points and 16 boards. “It’s an improvement from last year. Coming into (the championships), we were looking for a higher number,” said Morrison of the team’s 13th-place finish at last year’s provincial championships.” Brookswood defeated Oak Bay 64-57 in the AAA final.

Newton’s Corned Beef
A St. Paddy’s Tradition: Corned Beef and Cabbage Did you know cabbage is one of the healthiest veggies you can eat and it’s incredibly affordable? Compounds called glucosinolates and a high-fibre content are both implicated in cancer and cardiovascular disease prevention. And this benefit can be enhanced by light cooking.After slow-cooking your corned beef, add root vegetables like carrots and potatoes to the broth and cook until tender. Then add in loads of shredded cabbage and cook for only 5 minutes until softened. Avoid cooking the cabbage for too long or it will lose some of its health properties. Have a moderate serving of meat (2.5 oz) with a hearty serving (1-2 cups) of cabbage plus the other veggies for a traditional Irish meal. Don’t forget the pint of Guinness! 2010 - 2014 Awards.
