A group of Taiwanese seniors made Burnaby their first stop in a 2,000-kilometer bike ride to promote their home country as a haven of healthy aging. The cyclists, whose average age is 72, visited Burnaby city hall on Monday on the first leg of their journey. “Burnaby has developed many programs that enable our seniors to participate fully in community activities and to lead to healthy and active lifestyles,” said Mayor Derek Corrigan in a media release. “We share with Taiwan the objectives of the Golden Generation cycling tour, and we are thrilled and very honoured to have the participating cyclists make Burnaby the first stop in their 2,000-kilometre west coast tour.” The trip is called the Golden Generation Thousand Miles Ride Tour, and there are 42 seniors from Taiwan who are participating – the oldest is 93. Fan Ko-Chin, a Taiwanese TV producer, is following the cyclists and making a documentary, which will be released in June. The 21-day bike tour ends in San Jose, at Google’s California headquarters. On Monday, Corrigan and local councillors met with the group, to present them with certificates and send them off on a safe journey. The agile and active group broke into a sporty dance in council chambers, and the mayor and councillors joined in. The bike tour is meant to inspire more seniors to

Burnaby Coun. Richard Chang is volunteering as a driver with the group, and the NOW caught up with him on the phone Wednesday evening, as the cyclists were approaching Seattle. Chang said the group was doing “not bad.”
“They are quite experienced (cyclists). They are not just like a bunch of seniors that have no experience at all,” he said. Chang got involved with the cycling group, because he’s friends with the president of a Taiwan-based seniors’ charity promoting the ride, and Chang plans to follow the Cyclists Page 8
Willingdon should have been ours – Mayor Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Mayor Derek Corrigan is upset over the province’s latest sale of Crown land in Burnaby, as the city was in talks to buy the property but was later cut out of the deal. The City of Burnaby was eyeing the nearly $58-million swath of Crown land at
Willindgon Avenue and Canada Way since last fall, but the mayor was surprised to learn the city was out of the picture after the province had to consult with First Nations, who ended up buying the property. “I was shocked, I had no idea this was happening,” Corrigan told the NOW. “I had no idea we would not be permitted to exercise our right of first refusal.”
The 16-hectare patch of land was sold to two First Nations - the Tsleil-Waututh and the Musqueam. Corrigan learned the city could no longer buy the property just days before the sale was announced on March 27. After the city expressed interest in buying the property last fall, the province met with First Nations to fulfill a legal duty to

New rates could damage business City printer joins call to rethink new recycling program Cayley Dobie staff reporter
Looming changes to B.C.’s recycling program have Burnaby businesses calling for the provincial government to delay implementation before it’s too late. Burnaby-based Hemlock Printers is one of many businesses in the city asking the government to reconsider such a sudden and drastic change for fear the transition won’t go as smoothly as officials are expecting. “It needs to be more carefully considered just out of the need for the program to work,” Richard Kouwenhoven, president and general manager of Hemlock, told the NOW. “It’s not a question of a delay tactic to avoid an expense, it’s really that Hemlock as a company and the industry that we’re in, have significant concerns about how this has been thought out and how effective it will be in the long-term.” While Hemlock Printers won’t be paying into the new system, which will be administered through Multi-Material B.C. (MMBC), many of its clients will. “Our concern is that some of our customers would be impacted with significant costs, and costs that would potentially prevent

BRANSON’S MOTHER SAYS: ‘HE WAS JUST EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING IN MY WORLD’
Judge pondering killers’ jail sentences Cayley Dobie staff reporter
Nearly three years ago, 20-year-old Cariboo Hill graduate Branson Sanders was brutally murdered in the basement of a Surrey home. His badly burned remains were found less than a week later in bushes off of Fareham Avenue and Elwell Street in Burnaby. Since that day in 2011, Branson’s mother, Hannele Sairanen, has endured hearing after hearing, as the Crown and defence counsel went over every detail of the morbid events of Nov. 27, 2011. After two years of proceedings, the men accused of murdering Branson – 21year-old Shakib Shakib and 20-year-old Brandon Nandan – pled guilty to charges of manslaughter. Last Friday, Sairanen, along with friends and family, packed into a small courtroom in Surrey expecting to hear how long Shakib and Nandan would spend in prison – but that decision wasn’t made. At the sentencing hearing, the Crown and defence made a joint submission, stating both Shakib and Nandan should serve six years in jail, minus time served, for manslaughter. But after listening to both the Crown and defence’s submission – which included victim impact statements from Branson’s mother, his aunt and a neighbour, as well as statements from friends and family of Nandan – Judge Michael Hicks told the courtroom he required more time to make an “informed” decision. “At the end of the day the final decision rests with me,” he said. And so, after nearly three years of proceedings, the question of how long Shakib and Nandan will spend behind bars is put on hold, and Sairanen is once again left waiting for closure she says will never come. In a recent interview with the Burnaby NOW, Sairanen talked about the joy her son brought her and the numbing pain she experiences now that he is gone.
“He was just everything, everything in my world. That was my reason to wake up in the morning, that was my reason to live, that was my reason to keep the house here because I thought my son would inherit everything that I work hard for, so a lot of things in my world have changed,” she said from her home in Courtenay. Branson was Sairanen’s only child. She remembers the day the police told her Branson was dead. She remembers calling the coroner asking to see her son and being told it would be best if she didn’t come. For Sairanen, Branson was her world. Branson was just an average kid, she says, with dreams and aspirations similar to other young people his age – he wanted to get married, have kids, settle down and build a home for his family. “I think he wanted to have the same kind of life everyone has,” Sairanen said. Branson was a caring son, according to Sairanen. He would call his mother every other day to check up on her. “Whenever I was with him, it was all good. I know that he had some issues and, yeah, he was trying to find work, and he didn’t want to go to school,” she said. But those were just normal things kids deal with after graduating high school, and Sairanen wasn’t concerned, she knew he would choose something to do eventually. Unfortunately, he never got the chance. After a difficult few years of court dates, Sairanen has been left feeling numb and out of touch. She says the trial has been exhausting and fears the victim, her son, has been forgotten. “This is the first time I’ve ever had to have any dealings with anything in the Canadian judicial system, and I just think it really sucks. It sucks big time, and I just think nothing has been done,” she said. “Through the whole time, I’ve gone to every proceeding that has happened on the Mainland. I’ve been to every bail hearing, all that, and it’s like nobody there ever wanted to speak with me. Nobody ever even asked me what happened with your

Surrounded by family and friends, Sairanen was obviously distraught when the judge announced he needed more time to make his decision. Sairanen will now wait until April 10, when she will once again make the trip from Courtenay to Surrey for the second

part of Shakib and Nandan’s sentencing. No matter the ruling, however, Sairanen says she’ll never get closure – how can she, she adds. “A lot of mornings I wake up and I go, ‘Why should I bother even waking up?’” Sairanen said. “When you have a child, and you lose a child, there’s no comparison.” Shakib and Nandon will be back in court on April 10 in Surrey for Judge Hicks’ sentencing ruling.

Conservatives don’t like voters IN MY OPINION
hould you vote? Is voting important to a democracy? Should young people, new Canadians, and the elderly be encouraged to vote? If you said yes to any of these questions, you disagree with the Conservative government’s new Fair Elections Act. However, you do agree with the head of Elections Canada, a host of scholars and academics who study the democratic process, and Preston Manning, godfather of the new Canadian conservatism. The Fair Elections Act (roll your eyes while you say it) contains a number of provisions that seem to be directly designed to reduce voter turnout. First, it bans Elections Canada from promoting the act of voting or from publishing its own research reports. This seems like an exceedingly good idea, especially considering that young people have been abandoning the polls in great numbers for the last few decades. And why would you want to reach out to educate
those who have just received their citizenship cards? Bah, let them fend for themselves! Educating the electorate is a waste of time! There is also the elimination of both voter identification cards and of the “vouching” system. You have probably been receiving voter cards in the mail for years, which help voters identify themselves at the polls, especially voters who don’t have a lot of traditional ID. Who doesn’t have traditional ID? Mostly the poor and the young. But their votes shouldn’t count for as much, because they don’t contribute as much labour value to society, and of course, because they might not vote Conservative. Conservative MP Brad Butt tried to improve the government’s case for this measure by saying he’d seen people picking voter information cards out of the garbage and using them to vote illegally. He later had to retract this, claiming someone else had just told him about this. In either case, it’s curious that he didn’t see fit to report the crime to either Elections Canada or the RCMP. Vouching is the system by which I, a voter with proper ID, can vouch for you, my friend Stan, and say, yes, this is Stan Smith, I’ve known him for years, Voting Page 7
nesses and exempted them from paying fees to MMBC if their revenues are below $1 million a year, if they produce less than a tonne of packaging each year or if they are single outlets. That excludes the majority of businesses but means the remaining ones – and their customers – will have to foot the bill for everyone’s recycling. Newspapers are among the industries most worried about the new system. Peter Kvarnstrom, chairman of the Canadian Newspaper Association, warned that the added costs are so sig-
nificant to an industry that is already fragile that they will force layoffs in newsrooms across the province. B.C.-based magazines will be penalized because they will have to pay for recycling, while international publications that are printed elsewhere and shipped to the province, pay nothing. Everyone, including the critics of MMBC, can get behind the idea of reducing waste. But the province needs to listen to these very serious concerns. – Guest editorial from the Victoria Times Colonist
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR United Way choices questioned Dear Editor:
Re: Seniors will bear brunt of cutbacks, Burnaby NOW, April 2. Would it be rude of me to ask just why it is that “seniors” would be the victim of proposed cutbacks from United Way because of a drop in funding? We are told that the United Way gets both government funding, along with private funds. Full disclosure here: I do not donate to the United Way and do not approve of the government, any government, assisting in their so-called charities.
The reason I do not is because the United Way donates funds to Planned Parenthood, which mostly concerns itself with building and supporting abortion clinics, in mostly downtown urban areas. Given that abortion is a matter of personal choice, it is my contention that those making the choice, a choice that seldom arises from dire medical consequences (pregnancy is not an illness) that they pay for these non-necessary surgical intrusions themselves? Odd, isn’t it, that the United Way does not tell us how much they give to Planned Parenthood? It is true that you may donate to the United Way, I won’t Page 7

Voting: Scrap the new elections act continued from page 6
he is who he says he is. And then we sign documents affirming this, and I’m essentially on the hook if Stan turns out to be a vile infiltrator who’s trying to vote twice. The Tories claimed that vouching has given rise to widespread electoral fraud. However, there is no evidence of fraud. In fact, the head of Elections Canada, Marc Mayrand, explained this at great length in front of a parliamentary committee recently. The author of the report the government cited to back up its
fraud claims popped up to explicitly deny that he’d ever said any such thing. What else is in the bill? Increased donation limits for individuals, because money has always been good for politics. And the right for sitting MPs to recommend names to Elections Canada of poll supervisors. That would give things that touch of non-partisan legitimacy. The Tories do not seem to have much to say in support of their legislation, even as they are getting hammered from both right and left over various, or all facets, of the bill.
I briefly thought that I might be interested in hearing the Conservatives defend this bill. Then I changed my mind. I’m not interested in a defence of an indefensible piece of legislative garbage. When Preston Manning tells you it’s a bad idea, Tories, you should listen. Listen, and scrap the whole bill, then pretend it was all a bad dream. It would have been better had that been the case.

THE BURNABYNOW STORY: Jane Shin introduces e-petitions bill, March 26
Comment via BurnabyNOW.com I Dennis: An e-petitioning system may sound good in this technological age, but just because the Internet is part of our daily lives does not mean that the practice of petitioning should shift towards cyberspace. It sounds convenient and efﬁcient and easy but legislators need to consider all the possible negative effects e-petitioning can trigger and impose on our political culture and our society in the long term. There is a reason for the traditional way – paper petitioning – is still the safer means. It is also a more engaging and genuine means of political participation because it requires physical effort and time and an inquiring mind. There is the possibility that someone from another country, and in fact anyone, can access/get hold of and use a B.C. resident’s basic personal information to ﬁle or support a petition. Who knows the possibilities in cyberspace. When it comes to issues or attempts to get issues raised in our legislature it should not be taken lightly. E-petitions can also create chaos and rather weaken the gravity of an issue. Issues that get ﬁled should be serious. Legislators’ time is precious and should not be wasted on reviewing and ﬁltering e-petitions all day. Let social media and Internet forums do their traditional role of engaging voters and the public and in informing and sharing. … The Internet should NOT be replacing or dominating our political engagement and democratic process.

Willingdon: ‘We acted in complete good faith’ – mayor continued from page 1
Corrigan would have liked to see the land used for an expansion of BCIT or Burnaby Hospital. “(The sale) means the opportunity for the hospital to expand and move to a better location is gone,” Corrigan said. Corrigan is also angered by comments made in the press by Andrew Wilkinson, Minister of Technology, Innovation and Citizens’ Services, the ministry that oversaw the deal. “We acted in complete good faith throughout this, and this Wilkinson – who is obviously a very inexperienced minister and hasn’t done his homework on this one – Wilkinson said, ‘we snoozed, and we lose.’ That was his comment in the paper, and I’m just incensed by that,” Corrigan said. “We did exactly the opposite. We did every bit of diligence we should to have the opportunity to purchase it, the only thing
we were not diligent in doing, was that we trusted them.” Corrigan, who worked as a lawyer before getting into politics, pointed out that Wilkinson was also a lawyer. “That kind of practice by a minister who is supposed to be a lawyer is really offensive to me,” Corrigan said. “In any terms, this would be called sharp practice, where a lawyer uses an opportunity to fool someone in order to give up a legal right.” Corrigan said he didn’t think there was any positive spin on the land going to First Nations. “The Tsleil-Waututh are buying it like any other developer,” Corrigan said. “This is a money-making proposition for them. This is not going to be for longhouses and native activities, this is going to be purely an economic development opportunity.” Wilkinson was not available for comment by the NOW’s deadline.

some of the cyclists are also from Japan and Singapore. “The spirit is they want to come to North America and the States because they think no one has done this before.

Mayor highlights city’s Pipeline application sustainability, diversity takes step forward Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Mayor Derek Corrigan delivered his 2014 state of the city address to a packed room at the Delta Burnaby Hotel on Wednesday. The election-year speech, hosted by the Burnaby Board of Trade, highlighted positive aspects of the city’s work and steered clear of controversial subjects, like the Kinder Morgan pipeline, with the business-friendly audience. The mayor’s address portrayed Burnaby as a multicultural and diverse municipality that values its green space and is building up the city’s town centres, while welcoming new development projects and their associated density-bonus perks. Corrigan spoke of partnerships with other levels
HIGHLIGHTS FROM STATE OF THE CITY ADDRESS ! On average, the fire department responds to 13,000 incidents annually. ! In Burnaby, violent crime is down six per cent, while property crime is down eight per cent. ! The city has planted 2,500 native trees and shrubs along John Matthews Creek to help stop erosion in the ravine. ! The city upgraded two kilometres of dikes along the Fraser River, to protect the Big Bend area from flooding. ! The city opened a new eco-centre to
Kinder Morgan’s pipeline expansion plan has passed another major hurdle. The National Energy Board announced Wednesday that the application is, in fact, complete, despite protest from the City of Burnaby. Kinder Morgan submitted the application to the board in December, and the board’s first step was to review the 15,000-page application to determine if it was complete before proceeding. The board will now hold a hearing to gather information and evidence to decide whether the project is in Canada’s best interests and should be approved. The hearing location will be announced at a later date. Another major step for the board
of government and advocacy efforts but added a cautionary clause. “We remain vigilant, recognizing it’s critical for the long-term viability of our city that the federal and provincial government don’t view our willingness to participate in such initiatives as an opportunity to download the tax burden onto property owners,” he said. Corrigan also boasted about the city’s green initiatives, in particular Burnaby’s environmental sustainability strategy, which is now under development. He also spoke of the city’s move to legalize secondary suites and the new tree bylaw. Corrigan ended with a brief financial snapshot. In 2013, the city’s investment portfolio pulled in a 4.64 per cent return, which translates to $38.3 million – the highest ever in a single year for Burnaby.
replace the Still Creek Recycling Depot. ! Boiler replacement at local swimming pools will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 100 tones. ! Solar panels installed at Bonsor’s swimming pool save $14,000 in annual heating costs. ! To date, development has brought in $100 million in amenity bonuses, and $15 million of that is earmarked for the housing density bonus fund, which will go towards non-market housing projects.
was the announcement of who will be allowed to participate in the hearing. More than 2,100 people applied as participants in the hearing, many from Burnaby. Of those, 400 have been granted intervenor status, 798 have been granted commentator status, 452 have been granted both, and 468 were denied a chance to participate. The board’s next step is to send Trans Mountain/Kinder Morgan the first round of information requests on April 17, when the potential conditions for the project will also be announced. The board has the power to impose conditions on the project. See more at www.burnabynow.com. – Jennifer Moreau

They’re living the hard-knock life Burnaby performers in the spotlight in Royal City Musical Theatre’s Annie, April 10 to 26 Julie MacLellan staff reporter
alk to Avril Brigden and Aubrey Maddock for awhile, and you’ll quickly find out that they’re enthusiastic about just about everything to do with Royal City Musical Theatre’s Annie. Everything, that is, except the bloomers that the orphans have to wear. Those are tight and itchy and make the girls really glad that in their real lives, they get to wear jeans. The two Burnaby girls are onstage as orphans in Annie, which opens at New Westminster’s Massey Theatre on April 10. They met up with the NOW during their March break to talk about their experiences in the musical. “It’s going really well!” said an enthusiastic Aubrey, a 12year-old Grade 6 student at Montecito Elementary School. “I really like the experience, it’s really fun,” agreed Avril, who’s 10 years old and in Grade 5 at Sperling Elementary. “I like that I’m doing what I love.” That love, of course, would be performing. Neither girl is a stranger to the world of singing, dancing and acting in front of crowds. Aubrey – who appears as Kate – started her acting career at the age of eight, when she played Matilda in her school production of Willy Wonka and then appeared as Marta in Footlight Theatre’s The Sound of Music. A year later, she was cast as a featured munchkin in Footlight’s The Wizard of Oz, and at age 11 played Mabel in her school’s production of I Need a Christmas Vacation. She also plays the violin and sings with a Coastal Sound Music Academy choir, as well as taking creative dance with ArtSpace. Avril – who plays Pepper as well as understudying Annie – studies musical theatre and dance at Lindbjerg Academy of Performing Arts. She’s been in four shows with Lindbjerg Academy and recently appeared in Align Entertainment’s Shrek The Musical. At last year’s Kiwanis Fraser Valley Music Festival, she won the Best Broadway Performance award. They’re both thrilled to be part of the cast for Annie. “I love the music, I’ve always

They both love the choreography created by director Valerie Easton for the Royal City production, and they’re excited to perform with the full orchestra. And they also like the chance to get onstage and get dressed up – or is that down? – in their ragged orphan clothes, with messy hair and dark blush to give them dirty faces. Except, that is, for those itchy bloomers – which they were horrified to learn that children did, indeed, used to have to wear for real. “I feel bad for the people back then,” Avril says, her lively face expressing her disgust at the idea. Bloomers, aside, however, the two are delighted with the chance to play children who aren’t much like their real-life selves. “I love my character,” says Aubrey. “I love how no one in the orphanage is like peaches and cream, they’re all tough.” Avril agrees. “Mine is super-tough,” she says. “She’s kind of given up

to be taking part in this show – the company’s 25th anniversary performance – because the group has done so much for his life as a performer. Royal City Musical Theatre Company gave him his first performing opportunity, in the 1997 production of Guys and Dolls, when he moved West from Ontario. He’s since appeared in the company’s productions of The Sound of Music and Carousel. “I was delighted to get cast in this role,” he said. “Royal City, they’ve done a lot for me and my career. To be able to participate in their 25th anniversary is pretty special.” They’re joined onstage by three other Burnaby residents: Gavin LeClaire as Drake and Lt. Ward, along with Damon Jang and Stefanie Stanley in the ensemble. Annie is onstage April 10 through 26 at the Massey Theatre, 735 Eighth Ave., New Westminster.

Artist shows work at Commercial Street Café LIVELY CITY
egular readers may remember Kevin Godsoe, the Burnaby artist who was featured in these pages on Feb. 14 when he had a show at the Havana Gallery on Commercial Drive. Well, Kevin’s back again – this time with a show at the Commercial Street Café in Vancouver. Kevin sent an email to let us know about his latest show, Manikins and Meditations, which is running throughout April at the café at 3599 Commercial St. (at East 20th Avenue). He’s holding a “meet the artist” afternoon on Sunday, April 13 – drop in for coffee and food between 4 and 5 p.m., and you can chat with Kevin about his work. The show includes paintings and mixed-media work. Everyone who pur-
chases a painting will also receive a small sketchbook of his line drawings. I was pleased to hear that Kevin’s earlier show at Havana was a success. “Despite the snow working against me, the show went quite well, and I sold three pieces – two of which went to a U.S. collector,” Kevin wrote. His professional resumé includes numerous solo and group shows as an artist, as well as work as a performance artist and writer. For more, check out tinyurl.com/ KevinGodsoeArt.

Citizen Support Services shopping to make a difference
Citizen Support Services IGA Volunteer Shoppers Irene Morrisey, Grace Marshall, Donna Salter and June Demcheson
As you go about your weekly grocery shopping in your neighbourhood supermarket, do you ever notice an elderly couple or a single senior citizen slowly and effortfully working their way down the aisle, pushing a huge shopping cart? Do you ever wonder how these senior citizens, or persons with disabilities manage to get their groceries when they no longer have the ability to drive themselves or are not mobile enough to get to the store to stock up on supplies? In our society there is a strong push to keep aging seniors living independently in their homes as long as possible (both to avoid over-stressing the assisted and supportive living residences and to maintain the sense of comfort and familiarity for the individual). It is essential to connect such citizens with services that can provide for the daily necessities, one of the most important being grocery shopping.
Citizen Support Services has provided this essential service, with the help of dedicated volunteers and communityminded businesses, for over 35 years. The Shop-By-Phone program has gone through changes over the years but remains a vital aspect of senior independence in Burnaby. Volunteers are the backbone of this program; they phone housebound clients weekly to take grocery orders, shoppers then carefully shop each order and then the orders are delivered to the homes of the clients by the supermarket. Volunteers also provide returns and exchanges, where possible, to ensure that the clients are satisfied with their grocery orders. The City of Burnaby’s Citizen Support Services works with the IGA Marketplace, at Willingdon and Kingsway, to maintain this program which is vital in allowing about 150 housebound seniors to remain living independently in their homes. Over
65 volunteers work tirelessly to shop approximately 60 orders every week for 50 weeks of the year! The success of this program has been recognized by the clients, volunteers and staff of Citizens Support Services as well as the Mayor and Council of Burnaby and the many corporate and private donors to the programs. With the rising cost of all commodities, it is vital that this program be kept affordable so these services can continue in order to maintain the independence of Burnaby’s senior citizens and persons with disabilities. For more information on volunteering with Citizen Support Services or referring Burnaby citizens for this and many other programs, call 604-294-7980 or go to www.burnaby.ca/citizensupportservices You may also apply to volunteer on-line at www.myvolunteerpage.com

Street School area from her childhood and from her neighbourhood in the Sperling and Burris area as an adult. She particularly enjoys volunteering with our School Programs and at our special events. Her cheerful disposition and interest in meeting new people guarantees that she will enjoy her role as Honorary Reeve.
Sav Dhaliwal, City of Burnaby Councillor and Chairperson of Parks Recreation and Culture Commission, recognized Ruby’s long time commitment with flowers and a certificate. As the City does not have a formal “pin” for 40 years of volunteer service she was also presented with a caricature, depicting her in the Village’s 1920s costume and acknowledging her as the “Queen of North Burnaby”.
Our Honorary Reeve position was established in 2000. The incumbent, selected from among the Museum’s volunteers, serves as its ambassador, meeting the public and speaking at special events. The Reeve, in Burnaby, is a position that transitioned into that of the Mayor Mr. Alan H. Emmott served as the City’s last Reeve and first Mayor (1958-1968). In Burnaby, in the 1920s, the period represented here at the Village, the Reeve was the most senior administrative position.
The Honorary Reeve for 2014 is Alicia Moroz. Alicia considers herself a “Burnaby Girl” having grown up in Burnaby and lived all but 5 years of her adult life in the community. She has many memories of the Edmonds

Is driving faster harder on your car? CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi
Dear Tom and Ray: Please settle a difference of opinion. All things being equal, which is harder on my engine: travelling 500 miles at 50 miles per hour, or going 500 miles at 75 m.p.h.? My other half justifies her 75 m.p.h. theory with the shorter time the engine is working. Which uses less fuel? And if you could cite research sources, that would be appreciated. Thank you for the time and trouble (and no, there isn’t any money riding on the
answer, just my male ego). – Will TOM: Congratulations, Will. Your ego will remain not only intact, but actually enhanced by our answer. RAY: This reminds me of the old lame joke about the guy who was almost out of gas, so he drove home fast, hoping to get there before he ran out. TOM: The primary difference between 55 m.p.h. and 75 m.p.h. is the wind resistance, because wind resistance makes the engine work harder – a lot harder. The wind resistance is almost double at 75 what it is at 55. RAY: Here are some citations for that fact, Will: Newton, Issac, Second Law of Physics, 1687; Newton, Issac, Air
Resistance, 1726; Bernoulli, Daniel, Hydrodynamica, 1738; and Euler, Leonhard, Euler Equations, 1757. TOM: Have your “other half” start with that stuff, and when she’s ready, write back and we’ll get her a workbook with some Navier-Stokes equations. RAY: More recently, Bridgestone did a study, mostly for the benefit of truckers trying to find the ideal highway speed, and they found that at 75 m.p.h. versus 55 m.p.h., over the long term, maintenance costs could increase by 10 to 15 per cent, with a corresponding drop in engine durability. TOM: They also found that tire life decreased 10 per cent to 30 per cent due to the higher speed. RAY: And fuel economy
are different, with differdefinitely takes a hit due ent engines, transmissions to the higher wind resisand drag coefficients. So tance. The same study the “optimal” speed for found that when you drop any individual your speed might not from 75 m.p.h. “In general, the car be exactly 55 to 55 m.p.h., faster you go m.p.h. But in your mileage general, the improves by over 55 or 60, faster you go almost 40 per the harder your over 55 or 60, cent! Here’s the harder the link, Will, engine has to your engine because I’m work, and the has to work, sure she’s lower your and the lower not going to your mileage. believe you, mileage.” TOM: Of or us, with course, there good reason: RAY MAGLIOZZI is a cost for tinyurl.com/ automotive columnist driving at 55 m.p.h. versus 75: your BridgestoneStudy. time!

Art in the libraries:
Far left: Stuart McCall’s Port Mann Bridge, Deck from North Tower, from July 2011, is part of an exhibition at the Burnaby Public Library’s McGill branch. At the library’s Metrotown branch, visitors can check out works by Famous Empty Sky including Elegant, a photomontage (centre) and Time, a mixed-media collage (at left).
Libraries shine spotlight on art Two Vancouver-based artists are in the spotlight in new exhibitions at Burnaby Public Library branches. The Burnaby Art Gallery is opening two new off-site exhibitions, one at the Metrotown library branch and the other at the McGill library branch. At Metrotown, visitors can check out Portals of Time: The Best of Famous Empty Sky, running until June 8. Famous Empty Sky is a Vancouver artist who’s known for her mixed-media artwork as well as her work as a facilitator in workshops that have resulted in several collaborate works of art. She started her Portals of Time series on New Year’s Day of this year, originally intending it to be a one-month project – a project that was extended when the Burnaby Art Gallery expressed interest in showing the collages at the library. The work was selected from 64 artworks that had been completed in the medium of collage, photomontage, digital collage and 3-D collage. The Metrotown (Bob Prittie) library branch is at 6100 Willingdon Ave. In North Burnaby, at the McGill library, visitors can check out the work of Vancouver photographer Stuart McCall. His images have been featured in publications such as Time, Fortune, Saturday Night, Photography Monthly and the Times of London, as well as in books by National Geographic and Douglas & McIntyre. Since the 1990s, he has worked with Vancouver artist Neil Wedman on various photo-based projects that have been widely exhibited. His work has been recognized in the Lotus Awards and the International Photography Awards. Work in the library exhibit will include prints of his photos of Port Mann Bridge construction.

Simon Fraser holds Tartan Day event Humza Yousaf, a member of Parliament from the Scottish National Party, will kick off Simon Fraser University’s annual free public Tartan Day on April 5. Yousaf, who’s a member of the party in power, is Scotland’s first Muslim minister and a key advocate of Scotland’s current independence
movement, according to an SFU press release. Yousaf will deliver a talk on Scotland’s future at the April 5 event, dubbed “Tartan Day,” which runs from 10 a.m. to noon at SFU’s Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue in Vancouver. Burnaby resident Leith Davis
is organizing Tartan Day, which is an annual Scottish celebration, observing Scottish independence at the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320. Davis is the director of SFU’s Centre for Scottish Studies and an English professor. She hopes to tie in SFU’s Tartan
Day with discussion on Scotland’s current efforts to break away from Britain. “My students will hopefully be asking the minister many questions. For them, it’s a unique opportunity to engage in experiential learning,” says Davis. www.twitter.com/JenniferMoreau

On the run: Burnaby Lake winger Ciara Malone leads a well-supported charge downfield against United Rugby Club in B.C. Rugby women’s premiership at Hume Park last week. Burnaby lost the match 33-29.
Double blue post winning weekend The Burnaby Lake Rugby Club Men’s program hosted three games and claimed victories in all of them at Burnaby Lake Sports ComplexEast last Saturday. The BLRC pulled some lastminute heroics over Simon Fraser University in a come-from-behind 13-12 victory over the Clan students. Casey Evans hit a penalty kick with no time left to lift the team to the one-point victory.
Giuseppe Laudisio scored seven tries to lift the first-place Division 1 men to a 66-12 win over the Meraloma rugby club. BLRC currently leads the Div. 1 table with an 11-1 record, nine points up on 9-3 Capilano and 10 points ahead of 9-3 University of Victoria. In premier men’s play, Burnaby Lake secured home-field advantage in the upcoming playoffs with a convincing 59-6 victory over the
Meralomas in the featured match at Burnaby Lake-East. The victory was the eighth in a row for the Lakers and improved the club’s regular season record to 11-1, eight points better than second place James Bay at 8-4. Burnaby Lake’s Geoff Ryan hit the century mark, extending his league-leading scoring total to 100 points on the season with a try and seven conversions (19 pts) in the victory over the Ex-Kitsilano club.
Second-year EDC Burnaby club wins u-21 cup Tom Berridge sports editor
Parker Ellis finally got the silverware he was after. The talented EDC Burnaby striker scored the gamewinning goal in overtime and was later named cup tournament MVP following the team’s 2-0 victory over Guildford FC in the Vancouver Metro Soccer League under-21 division cup final at Trillium Park last Saturday. But it was hoisting the team trophy that meant the most to the 17-year-old Burnaby talent. “It feels good to win the cup. It feels good to be recognized as well, but it felt really good to win,” said Ellis earlier this week. Earlier this season, Ellis was a key component in Burnaby Central Secondary’s silver-medal run that disappointedly ended with a 2-1 overtime loss to Sutherland at the B.C. high school soccer championships, where the senior forward garnered both MVP and Golden Boot awards. “They’re different,” Ellis said of the two championships. “I was a part of a team as opposed to being a
leader of the high school team.” Ellis joined the former Chilean club midway through the season following the end of High Performance League play with Mountain FC. With a signed commitment to play at Simon Fraser University in September, Ellis made a seamless jump to the men’s division league under former youth coach John Penman. “(Ellis) is always welcome on my team. He was a great addition and he’s a great finisher,” said Penman, the u-21 club head coach. Ellis scored the eventual game-winner with six minutes remaining in the second OT period, collecting a clever chip over the Guildford back line from Suki Shergill and taking a touch before blasting the ball from the edge of the 18-yard box to the bottom corner of the goal. Three minutes later, Kuroush Faritous sealed the win for EDC Burnaby off a series of rebounds coming off a counter attack. With the win, EDC Burnaby will be seeded into the upcoming u-21 Provincial Cup against Gorge FC from the Vancouver Island league.

WEEKEND WARRIORS: SCOTTSDALE EDITION by Sarah Bancroft
From celebrity sushi to Frank Lloyd Wright, we know how to pack it in. We toured the architect’s famous winter home and architecture school Taliesin West, which takes you into all the buildings of this monument to Early Modernism.

AN UNEXPECTED MUSE
Soccer: Rematch of final next week continued from page 33
along with a healthy Joseph Marrello and Marco Visentin. Inter finished the season near the bottom of the table, staving off possible relegation with a strong restart in the season, winning nine and losing just one in its last 12 league and cup matches since Christmas. In the cup playdowns, Inter was pushed to overtime before getting by second-
round Division I opposition Vancouver Olympics 4-1. Inter then edged Surrey United Firefighters 2-1 in the quarter-finals before going on to upset league champion West Van in the semifinals on penalty kicks. Inter’s only loss in the new year was a 1-0 defeat to Columbus in March. Ironically, the two clubs will meet again next week in the first round of Provincial Cup play in a rematch of the Imperial Cup final.

Vancouver’s become the “It Girl” of spring fashion, with trends like Tom Ford’s SS ‘14, which glamorously confronts an distinctly localized vision of danger via mirror-y, shard-smattered dresses. Don this dress and you won’t be able to sit down—but you will look like False Creek at sunset, which is amazing. Find more Vancouverinspired fashion trends at www.vitamindaily.com. FASHION & SHOPPING

Despite the fact that we have drawers teeming with eyeshadowcolour options, we always return to a handful of go-to hues. At $85, NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette from Nars is, admittedly, a bit of a splurge, but if it means purging 95 per cent of our unused collection, it’s 100 per cent worthwhile.
