Town hall meeting turns into a call for action Jennifer Thuncher contributing writer
Close to 200 people packed a Burnaby elementary school gym Wednesday night for a meeting turned rallying cry against the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion. The City of Burnaby, which on April 2 was granted official intervenor status for the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project, hosted the first of two town hall meetings at Forest Grove Elementary school on Burnaby Mountain – an area set to be directly impacted by the proposed expansion. Mayor Derek Corrigan, several Burnaby councillors and city staff were on hand to express their opposition to the pipeline and rally citizens to take action against it. Corrigan showed graphics and photos of previous oil spills in the United States and Canada, including the 2007 Kinder Morgan spill in Burnaby that led to 250 residents being evacuated. “I know there has been a lot of Kinder Morgan talk about
operating pipelines safely for 60 years,” he said. “These oil spills happen frequently all over the world.” Members of the Burnaby RCMP, including Chief Superintendent Dave Critchley, and fire department representatives were also present as a show of support for the city’s stand, but they referred media questions to city representatives. In its applicaIN BURNABY tion to the NEB, Kinder Morgan said it will turn to Burnaby’s first-responders in the event of a spill. Community planner Zera Te cited fire and rescue concerns as one of the key reasons the city is opposing the pipeline. “I have a first-hand account from the Burnaby fire department that if there was a major incident at the Burnaby Mountain terminal that it would deplete the entire city’s resources to respond to that fire and that any other emergency throughout the city, they would
be unable to attend to it,” said Te. Longtime Burnaby resident Aage Karlsen, a former generalcargo seaman, was at the meeting to show his support for the city’s stand against the pipeline but was more concerned about the proposed increase in tankers in Burrard Inlet. “I think there should be a law against sending a big tanker right through the heart of a city,” he said. ”It’s insane.” City lawyer Greg McDade said citizens may not get the chance to hear Kinder Morgan’s exact tanker and pipeline plans or have their objections heard because there are no public hearings scheduled. According to McDade, the National Energy Board’s hearing order, which announces the process for review of the project – released April 2 – exposed that there will be no real public hearings before the NEB makes

District must make $3.1 million in cuts Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
The Burnaby school district is mulling nearly $4.4 million in cuts for the 2014/15 school year to deal with a projected deficit of $3 million. The “potential budget adjustments” include increasing class sizes, cutting teacher-librarians and music teachers, and reducing eight fulltime custodian positions.
Of that $4.4 million in potential reductions, the district must cut $3.1 million to balance the budget. The district hosted a packed public meeting on Wednesday night, to collect feedback from several delegations to help inform the decision-making process on what the final cuts will be. Longtime school trustee Ron Burton said the cuts they were considering made trustees sick to their stomachs. “This board will not take the easy way
out,” Burton told the audience. “We know what’s at stake, and we take our deliberations very seriously.” Burton also said it was time for the government to fund education properly. “In over 25 years on the board, these have been some of the toughest decisions I’ve had to make,” he said, acknowledging that they could cost people their jobs. The largest money-saving adjustment would be increasing class sizes at the sec-

ondary level, which would reduce 16 fulltime teaching positions and save nearly $1.5 million. The district is considering having daytime custodians clean at night, which would be more efficient since students aren’t in school. That move would reduce eight full-time positions and save $650,000. Another key item was “elementary nonenrolling teachers,” which refers to music Schools Page 9

and a team sports background are important qualities for candidates to have because it shows staff they enjoy helping others and are comfortable working in a group environment. The recruitment process might seem excessive, but it’s not without cause, or results. The Burnaby Fire Department has become known as one of the leading departments in the province, which could be the reason firefighter hopefuls endure the lengthy, and sometimes gruelling, recruitment process. With this in mind, reporter Cayley Dobie sat down with two Burnaby training officers, two of the department’s 2014 recruits and the director of the fire and safety division at the Justice Institute of B.C. to find out what all the fuss was about the Burnaby Fire Department.

Training intense – for good reasons
unning into a burning building where the list of unknown dangers is endless, isn’t a job for the faint of heart – in fact, it isn’t a job most people would ever consider doing. But for Dave Samson, fighting fires is just another day at the office. Samson is a captain with the Burnaby Fire Department and one of the training officers in charge of the 2014 recruitment program. For nine weeks, Samson and his training partner Lt. Darcy O’Riordan, prepared seven recruits for life as a firefighter. They trained them in the values of the department, fire station protocol and countless other technical skills they’ll

need once they’re assigned a watch. While the entire recruitment process, from application to training, can be an intense and exhausting experience, Samson says it’s like that for an important reason – to ensure the department is choosing the best people for the job. Firefighting is a lifelong career, one that most people do for more than 30 years. The way Samson sees it is the new recruits are an investment the department makes – and, like any investor, they want the biggest return for the money and time. The Burnaby NOW recently sat down with Samson to discuss what it’s like to become a

How it starts is you apply through human resources at the city. A screening process will take place to make sure you meet all the minimum requirements and then there will be a panel interview with human resources and fire chief personnel.

From then, what they’ll do is, what we call, the ride-along portion of our hiring process, and (the recruits) pick four days that work for them within a month period and they’ll go to work with certain fire halls, certain crews, and what they’ll end up with is four separate evaluations by four separate fire companies themselves – so it’s completely unbiased. After that there will be a physical abilities test.
CD: What is the purpose of all this testing? DS: The committee that conducts the hiring will compile all the data from the orientation weekends, from the ride-a-long tests, from their physical abilities test and come up with some type of ranking system where we hash it out and then that goes off to the fire chief and then there is a final interview … with the fire chief. CD: Did this year’s group go through the same process? DS: This group here, they did go through the previous recruitment as well and out of that recruitment in 2011, six candidates were chosen and hired. But
CD: What’s the reasoning behind such an intense hiring process? DS: To be honest, here at the Burnaby Fire Department we feel we have the best hiring process. Even though it’s lengthy and tough on the candidates, the end result is rewarding. Typically, firefighters work for more than 30 years so this isn’t just somebody who’s going to be around for a couple years, so we front-end load a lot of investment and time in evaluating in all the different facets of the job, not just their physical abilities but a lot of their ability to interact with others and with the public because that is a big part of the job. CD: Is it important to get input from the department as a whole? DS: There’s so many people that get touches on the process, so there’s really good involvement. It’s really important. We call ourselves second families around here, so we want to make sure we hire the appropriate people. For an extended version of this interview, go to www.burnabynow.com

the pipeline company is not entirely deaf to public perceptions. The fact that Kinder Morgan is now pondering another route change, one that involves drilling through Burnaby Mountain and avoiding the Westridge neighbourhood altogether, is interesting. Does this really make any difference to those opposed to the expansion? Probably not. But it could lead observers to suspect that the huge company is not entirely sure that it can have everything it wants. But that aside, the largest, and in our
opinion best argument against a major expansion is that Burrard Inlet is simply not the place to have massive oil tanker traffic. Toughly eight tankers fill up at the Westridge Marine Terminal each month, but if the pipeline expansion is approved, that number would increase to 34 – which translates to 408 per year. All it would take is one accident on water, or on the hill, for Burnaby to be transformed from a green city into a very black, ugly one. That’s simply not worththe risk.

IN MY OPINION
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Remembering Irene Alfredson Dear Editor:
My friend passed away on March 14. It was a quiet death, she slipped away at a very old age. But it was not the death she wanted, and she was not surrounded by the people that loved her. There was nothing written about her passing, but I couldn’t let it go unnoticed, because for 20 years she was a big part of my life, and for nearly eight decades she was a part of the fabric of the Burnaby Heights community. If you live in the Heights, you probably saw Irene Alfredson carrying her groceries on the bus, you may have seen her at Norburn, or run into her on the way back from the hairdresser in one of the raincaps I made her. (“Can you make me a raincap out of this old umbrella?” she would ask.). If you
are a very longtime resident of the Heights, you may have even known her husband George, who built their little house with his own hands. George was a pure talent with wood, and even carved his own fiddle. I have precious stores of memories and snapshots of our decades-long friendship; Irene gently feeding George in the hospital before he passed or pushing him in his wheelchair, all of us helping her cut down the old peach tree, tending the gardens and the plants her mother gave to her, and sweltering together with the plumber, the summer the pipes clogged. She religiously brought me copies of Piffle, and we had a lot of fun exchanging birthday gifts and treats over the years. She was one of the most thoughtful people I have ever met and was always looking out for us.

City decisions questionable Dear Editor:
I find it ironic that this newspaper runs a story about diminishing rental property supply in the Metrotown area using these poor people to make a case. After all, it was this city’s council who issued permits for these new developments. It seems inconsistent that all these highrises were approved without proper infrastructure and then the city would back its story up by saying that housing and schools is the responsibility of the provincial government. If so, why approve in the first place? Cui bono? Nikolay Samoylenko, by email
Mayor not making friends Dear Editor:
Mayor Derek Corrigan’s latest outburst against a provincial counterpart is unlikely to endear him to other levels of government or First Nations or business leaders for that matter. Claiming, in the media, to have been blindsided by the province’s decision to bypass Burnaby’s interest in purchasing the Willingdon lands, and demanding an apology from the minister, is not going to put him in a position to do better for his constituents in future. The mayor’s approach to dealing with

Shame on the United Way Dear Editor:
Shame, shame on the United Way for cutting back the seniors’ programs. I feel this is a slap in the face for the very generation that supported the United Way program for so many years! Now you’re asking for more of my money? Good luck with that. I’ll save my money as I won’t be counting on any support from the United Way. Seniors have given so much to us all in so many ways, and this is the thanks they get. Wow, so who’s ungrateful now! Perhaps United Way should make cutbacks on their own internal programs. Hey, United Way staff, charity begins at home. I mean your corporate home! Elaine McGregor, Burnaby

We would sit, she and I, and look through photo albums of her life, and wonder what letters said that came to her from Europe from “George’s people,” not written in English, and she use to come for Christmas dinners, and would love to sit with Buster the dog on the couch, while live music was being played for her special enjoyment. I have pictures, but I can’t share, sorry, because she hated to have her photo taken. So I’ll keep them just for me. When I sat down to write this, I didn’t know what to say, except that she was my last link to the old neighbourhood, my grandparents and simpler times when neighbours chatted over low fences and food was cooked at home.

adversity seems bent on isolating Burnaby from potential allies and keeping his head firmly in the sand regarding outcomes of their activities. A typical case that has gone largely unreported is his failure to communicate openly with one of his larger taxpayers – the Chevron refinery – while publicly grandstanding with threats of civil disobedience to block expansion of the pipeline that supplies it. Chevron has a community advisory panel, which invariably invites city hall to participate, and would no doubt welcome input from the municipality, but representatives of the Corrigan administration are conspicuous in their absence both from the panel and its quarterly meetings, which are open to the public. At the well publicized annual forum last fall, residents raised many concerns about tankers, rail cars, gas emissions, cancer rates, asthma. Many of the queries were deflected readily by Chevron and Metro Vancouver personnel with: “call and ask Burnaby.” I would suggest to His Worship that his adversarial approach to all who do not share his views or do his bidding has cost this municipality a great deal in the past and will continue to do so in future. While he sneers at the idea of diplomacy, I am very grateful that he does not have any influence on the world stage, where such an attitude generally leads to armed conflict.

Former MLA now recruiting foreign workers Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Former Burnaby MLA Harry Bloy is running a third-party recruiting business that brings in Asian temporary foreign workers to fill Canadian jobs. Bloy is listed as the president and CEO of Global Business Canada, according to his new website, but it’s unclear how he’s earning money, as the services he offers are free. “GlobalBusinessCanada is a consulting company that helps business owners around the world, especially in China and other Asian countries, discover potential opportunities and find desirable partnerships in Canada,” the site reads. Bloy is billed as a former MLA who “served with distinction” and has “extensive government and business connections across the country.” On the site’s Foreign Trained Workers section, Bloy writes in first person, outlining his background

It’s also not clear where mation on hiring foreign workers in Canada, and Bloy’s getting his informacompletion of paperwork tion.
“British Columbia alone will have a shortage of one million workers in the next 12 years,” Bloy writes on the site. But B.C’s Labour Market Outlook 2010 to 2020 states there will be one million job openings throughout the province over the next 10 years, and there will be an estimated shortage of 61,500 workers by 2020 – far short of one million. Another service Bloy is offering involves writing “invitation letters” to Asian governments and businesses wanting to visit Canada. The NOW tried contacting Bloy, but he didn’t respond. His business address is listed at 604 Columbia St., in New Westminster, where people can rent office space, but the NOW’s photographer was told Bloy hadn’t been there for some time. Bloy’s Global Business Canada was in the media last week, after he came under fire for using the provincial coat of arms on
his letterhead. Only current MLAs, executive council members, judges and the Lieutenant Governor can use the coat of arms, according to B.C. law. Last week, the NDP brought the issue up in the legislature, while the Liberals said Bloy agreed to stop using the symbol. Bloy’s political career ended when he decided not to run for re-election,
following a series of gaffes and scandals. To see Bloy’s site, go to globalbusinesscanada.ca. – with files from Jeremy Deutsch, Tri-Cities Now Editor’s note: After the Burnaby NOW posted this story online, Bloy’s site went blank.

Student showcase: Hans, by Grade 12 Burnaby Central Secondary student Fanny F., is a paper cutout work that’s part of the new Arts Alive exhibition at
Burnaby Art Gallery. An opening reception is being held Thursday, April 17.
Gallery showcases student artwork Two new exhibitions are opening soon at Burnaby Art Gallery. The gallery is once again shining the spotlight on student work with its annual showcase of student artwork, Arts Alive. The exhibition, held in collaboration with School District No. 41, highlights works by students selected from eight high schools around Burnaby. The students’ work will be on display in the lower gallery from April 18 to May 18. Upstairs at the same time will be a spotlight on Saskia Jetten. Jetten is a contemporary Dutch printmaker who has recently moved to Canada and now lives in the Fraser Valley, where she operates a print studio.
She works in a wide variety of media, including graphite, woodcut and stone lithography, as well as materials such as silks and ceramics. Her work touches on themes related to theatre, identity and interpersonal relationships, and she often uses the face (or the mask) as a starting point for artwork. Find out more about her at www. saskiajetten.com. Her work will be on display from April 18 to June 22. An opening reception for both exhibitions is set for Thursday, April 17 from 7 to 9 p.m., by donation. Two family Sunday programs – which give people of all ages a chance to combine the current gallery exhibit
with hands-on studio activities – are set for Sunday, April 27 and Sunday, June 1. They run by donation both days from 1 to 4 p.m. On Saturday, April 26, the gallery will host a Mandarin walking tour, led by Dong Yue Su. That’s by donation and runs from noon to 1 p.m. Jetten will then hold an artist talk on Thursday, June 5 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The gallery is open by donation, with a suggested donation of $5. It’s at 6344 Deer Lake Ave. and is open Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. See www.burnabyartgallery.ca for more information.

Love poetry? Burnaby poet Diane Tucker is launching her fourth book, Bonsai Love, with a special event at the Cottage Bistro in
Vancouver. Bonsai Love is described as a collection of poems about “the sensual delicacy of love.” “Her eloquent poems move us through the evolving stages of a single relationship, from beginning to bittersweet end,” says the release from Harbour Publishing. “Carefully pruned, intricate in design and sensitive to intrusion, these poems combine to
organically reveal an intricate love story.” Tucket is also the author of the poetry book God on His Haunches, which was a finalist for the Gerald For a book Lampert Memorial trailer, Award, the poetry scan collection The Bright with Scarves of Hours, Layar the novel His Sweet Favour and the play Here Breaks the Heart: the Loves of Christina Rossetti. Her poems have been published in Canada and internationally in more
than 60 journals. The Vancouver launch of Bonsai Love is free to attend, and everyone is welcome. Tucker will be joined by singer-songwriter Rodney DeCroo for the event, which starts at 7 p.m. For more details, call Cottage Bistro at 604-8766138, email marketing@ harbourpublishing.com or see the website at www. harbourpublishing.com.

Library launching storytelling series HERE & NOW
he Burnaby library is kicking off a new series featuring oral storytellers. The first event is set for Sunday April 27, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Metrotown library branch. Professional storytellers Philomena Jordan and Layla Laquin are presenting, as well as librarians Lucia Castillo and Carol Belanger. There will be a break for refreshments, as well, and we’re told the stories are not long. “Storytelling now it’s not just for children,” Castillo told the NOW. “They are telling stories from different countries. They are folktales. … People love it.” The event is free, and there’s no need to pre-register. Just drop in at 6110
Willingdon Ave. The library is also looking for new storytellers, so anyone with folktales to share can come to the event and talk to the librarians to learn more about getting involved. People who volunteer with the series will get free storytelling training from Anne Anderson. The more people that get involved, the more likely the library can continue with the storytelling series. The second event will be on Sunday, May 25, and the focus is on stories from Asia.

Your journey starts here.
New ATS is not your grandfather’s Caddy David Chao
or many decades in the past, Cadillac was the standard by which other luxury cars were measured – then the Japanese introduced Lexus, Acura and Infiniti and changed the face of the luxury car market. Cadillac almost lost its way during the 1980s and 1990s but managed to slowly emerge out of the troubled times by recreating its brand and its purpose. The result was a surprising comeback by Cadillac, and it now proudly markets some of the best luxury cars in North America, including its European-influenced ATS. When designing this car, they focused on rivalling the best imports from Germany, who historically offered a more engaging driving experience. The ATS has already garnered many achievements. The Automotive Journalists Association of Canada voted it the Best New Luxury Car in 2012, and at the 2013 North American International Auto Show it was awarded the North American Car of the Year.
As mentioned, GM aimed the ATS
directly at its imported rivals. When you look at its dimensions and price, it’s clear that the specific target was the BMW 3 Series. In every dimension, the ATS is within an inch of the BMW. The Cadillac has a shorter wheelbase, but its overall length is just a tad longer. Both are almost exactly the same width, and the ATS’s roof is only slightly lower. Prices are also very similar, and they both are available in four trim levels. Like the 3 Series, all ATS models come standard as rear-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is an option. There are also three different engines to choose from to further enhance the series. The ATS shares a lot of visual similarities to its sibling, the CTS. However, on closer inspection, the ATS is the sharperlooking car and brings a trendier feel to its shape thanks to its knife-edge design. The look is complimented by the “waterfall” LED daytime running lights and sharp rear centre light bar. The cabin of the ATS is very modern and posh, thanks to high quality materials. This interior proves that Cadillac is still capable of producing world-class interiors, though the feel is definitely more “American” than “European”

Luxurious: Cadillac has made a successful comeback into the luxury car market – and the ATS is one of the reasons why.
thanks to a lot of shiny materials.
Of the three available engines, the Standard model ATS comes with the choice of a 2.5-litre four cylinder or a 2.0-
litre turbo four. The naturally aspirated block puts out 202 hp while the turbo ups that to 272. The third engine choice, a 3.6-litre V6, is available on Luxury, Performance and Cadillac Page 24

Cadillac: Performance, handling are part of the package for new ATS continued from page 19
Premium models. It produces 321 hp and 275 ft-lbs of torque. Rear-wheel drive models with the turbo engine can opt for a six-speed manual, but a six-speed automatic transmission is standard across the range. The automatic is a nice gearbox that is willing to downshift whenever the driver accelerates hard. It also has a manual mode, utilizing paddle shifters on the steering wheel. In terms of handling, it could be argued that the ATS is in fact sportier than many of its competitors, which seems odd since Cadillacs aren’t known for handling traits. The solid chassis allows the suspension to do its job remarkably well; especially with the Magnetic Ride Control (MRC) system available on RWD Premium models. The performance suspension with MRC scans vehicle inputs every millisecond and alters the damping characteristics to deliver more precise body control. All in all, the ride in the ATS is excellent. The feedback afforded by the steering is much appreciated as it’s crisp and very nicely weighted. The ATS is always composed and large road imperfections are barely noticed. Selectable driving modes are standard on the ATS. The driver has a choice of three different modes, and depending on how the car is equipped, these can alter the engine, transmission, steering and if it has MRC, ride stiffness as well.
Sitting behind the wheel of the ATS is a pleasant experience thanks to its soft-touch materials and instrumentation that are on par with some of the best in
the market. The front seats are comfortable and surprisingly supportive around corners, especially in Performance and Premium models, which feature adjustable thigh support. Standard models come with leatherette, but the others get authentic leather seating surfaces. While the front passengers receive plenty of legroom, the same can not be said for rear passengers. Also, because of the domed shape of the centre seat and the centre console, capacity is limited to only two people. Cargo space is also limited, measuring at 10.2 cubic feet. Thankfully, most models come with 60/40 split folding rear seat backs. Most models feature the Cadillac User Experience, or CUE. It works with an eight-inch colour touchscreen and allows access to climate control, phone interface, entertainment, and vehicle settings. What makes it easier to use than other systems is that it gives you Haptic feedback. This lets you know the command has been acknowledged. The ATS is available with many modern safety systems including Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning. These features vibrate the seat to get your attention, however, if you change lanes while forgetting to signal, you could be led to believe your phone is vibrating in your pocket. This is one feature that I found annoying, to say the least.
Prices range from $35,695 to $51,480. Standard equipment includes keyless entry, push-button start, dualzone climate control, heated front seats, Bluetooth and eight airbags.
Additional features, available as options or on higher trims, include illuminated exterior door handles, heated exterior mirrors, rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, and a heated steering wheel. Fuel efficiency numbers
(L/100km) for 2.5-litre, RWD models with the automatic transmission are 9.2 city, 6.0 highway, for 7.8 combined. 2.0-litre turbo models see 9.9 city, 6.3 highway and 8.3 combined. V6 models return 11.3 city, 7.1 highway for 9.4 combined.
The ATS has great powertrains, outstanding handling and possibly one of the best looking exterior/ interior in this segment.
The limited cargo space
(10.2 cubic feet) and rear seat room may put off some buyers.
The bottom line
The ATS offers the same luxuries that Cadillacs are known for and also boasts performance that rivals the best from abroad.

BCAA helps senior drivers stay safe on the road
With the B.C. Stats agency projecting the number of seniors to rise by nearly 30 per cent over the next few decades, the British Columbia Automobile Association’s (BCAA) new senior driver survey shows that British Columbians are worried about the safety of aging drivers in their lives and struggling to have those challenging conversations. To help, BCAA is introducing its Senior Driver Toolkit, an online resource to keep senior drivers safe on the road. The survey, conducted recently by Insights West, reveals that 72 per cent of British Columbians are concerned about the safety of senior drivers. Many respondents who have a mature driver in their lives, feel anxious whenever their loved one gets behind the wheel (32 per cent) and feel powerless about how to keep their aging driver safe on the road (38 per cent). “People are worried each time their aging loved one gets into the car to drive, but they don’t know what to do,” says Mark Donnelly, BCAA director of communication and community impact. “The good news is that everyone cares about road safety. They just don’t know how to begin the
conversation. This is an important issue and will become even more important as more drivers age in this province. BCAA wants to help.” While most British Columbians (69 per cent) feel road safety would improve if families and their senior driver discussed safe driving, 63 per cent have not talked to an aging family member about their driving. Nearly half of those respondents (41 per cent) say they don’t know how to approach their loved one to have that conversation. BCAA’s new web tool, located at www.bcaa.com/ seniordrivers, is easy for anyone to use. The website incorporates information from the Canadian Medical Association’s Driver’s Guide and Canadian AssociationofOccupational Therapists. The toolkit provides families with advice, a conversation guide and a video that helps them in their discussions. The web tool provides senior drivers with easyto-follow assessment tools, which will show areas of improvement, interactive infographics that help users understand the common physical changes that affect driving, and videos with tips on how to man-

◆ 71 per cent of British Columbians, including senior drivers, say more education on road safety for aging drivers is needed. ◆ 42 per cent of respondents who have a senior driver in their lives say they don’t have enough information to know whether or not their aging loved one is

FILL IN THE BLANKS Meet Kevin:
Kevin Lee is a singer, choir director and teacher – and the subject of this week’s Fill in the Blanks. Jason Lang/ burnaby now
Getting to know you: Meet Kevin Lee W
e have started a 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. Meet this week’s featured performer, Kevin Takahide Lee. 1. I am Kevin Takahide Lee – 50 per cent Japanese, 50 per cent Chinese, 100 per cent Canadian. 2. I spend my time working in the many branches of performing arts. 3. Right now I am working on directing the Newcomers’ Choir, learning the chorus for Vancouver Opera and teaching for the City of Burnaby in addition to my own studio. 4. The book on my bedside table right now is Bel Canto: A History of Vocal Pedagogy. 5. Three songs you’ll find on my iPod playlist are Piazzola’s Soledad, Janelle Monae’s Tightrope and George Bizet’s Carmen. 6. One work of art that inspires me is Piazzola’s Four Seasons because he was able to adapt a Vivaldi’s classical baroque composition and give it the sensuous Piazzola flavour of Argentinian tango and romance. 7. One artist who inspires me is Kurt Weill. Despite being a Jewish, left-wing composer living in Nazi Germany he was able to flee to America where he composed music that spanned classical, popular, jazz and staged works. He made
music for a purpose, a social purpose. 8. My idea of a perfect day is a Sunday when I wake up at 8 a.m. and get my work done by noon so I have the rest of the day free to socialize, exercise and relax. 9. My favourite edible treat is ... My snack on the go is SunRype Okanagan bars. 10. My guilty pleasure is all-you-can-eat sushi! 11. My favourite vacation spot is staying at a Vancouver hotel with a view of the mountains. 12. My favourite thing about Burnaby is the opportunities it has and continues to provide me. I have 15 great years of volunteer and work history with the city’s recreation department, working with and for the people. 13. If I could sit down for a coffee with anyone at all, it would be Winston Churchill. 14. If I could live anywhere at any point in time, I would choose to live here in Burnaby now. It’s pretty wonderful here and now. 15. If I could have a superpower, my superpower would be teleportation. And finally … 16.

Burnaby jiu-jitsu master No. 1 in the world following Pans Tom Berridge
Scott Boudreau is standing on top of the world in the Master 2 lightweight purple belt division in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. He is also ranked fourth in the world in the open weight category following the recent win. Boudreau, who won single titles in 2012 and ’13 at the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world championships, won all five of this matches en route to the recent Pan American title at Irvine, California last month. “It meant a lot to me because I lost it last year,” said Boudreau of his early exit in the second round of the 2013 Pans. This time out, Boudreau, who runs the Budo Mixed Martial Arts school in North Burnaby with training partner Mike Hansen, made no mistake, winning all five matches in the purple belt division
in a span of less than two hours. “The day after, I didn’t do very much. “It’s all about staying calm. It’s a very big event,” he added. In the leadup to the Pans, Boudreau conditioned himself with sparring sessions of two and a half hours straight and worked on building up his legs for what was ahead. That strategy came in handy, particularly in his last two bouts, where he controlled much of the action from the more difficult on-top position. “That’s the beauty of jiu-jitsu, the ability to fight on your back. It’s a very powerful access to many more submissions,” he said. Boudreau won his match over Robert Schuster on aggression in a scoreless semifinal. In the final match, he bettered last year’s Pans champion Daniel Wilson from California on advan-

At 40 years of age, Boudreau, who competes as a purple belt under Don Whitefield at West Coast Jiu-Jitsu, is unsure what master division he will compete in in future years. “I don’t know, competition to me is like having fun. I’ve had no injuries, I’m 40. I’m good with
that. I’ll keep competing until I’m tired, I guess,” Boudreau said. Boudreau, who is also a second degree black belt in full contact Kyokushin karate, will look for a threepeat at the Brazilian jiujitsu world championships upcoming in October. “I like a good challenge,” he added, “as long as it’s safe.”

Stealth Rocked at home by Toronto The Vancouver Stealth lost for the 10th time this season, falling 17-9 to the Toronto Rock after a slow first-half start. The Stealth trailed the visiting Rock 6-2 after the opening quarter and 11-4 at halftime in a National Lacrosse League game at the Langley Events Centre last Saturday. “We battled back a bit after the slow start, but then we fell asleep again,” said Stealth captain Kyle Sorensen in an NLL press release. Rhys Duch led the home club with four goals and a third star mention, while Langley native Garrett Billings led all scorers with seven points, despite leaving the game in the second quarter with an ACL tear. Vancouver takes to the road for a repeat of last season’s Champions Cup final against the Rochester Knighthawks this weekend. Next Saturday, the Stealth plays host to Kevin Crowley and the Philadelphia Wings at the LEC.
