BURNABY MAYOR BLASTS KINDER MORGAN FOR ‘ARROGANT’ PART OF APPLICATION
Oil spills create business and job opportunities Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Kinder Morgan is under fire for suggesting oil spills can be good for the economy, and Burnaby’s mayor is none too pleased. Buried in the 15,000-page National Energy Board application to expand the Trans Mountain pipeline, Kinder Morgan makes the argument that oil spills can have benefits. “Marine spills can have both positive and negative effects on local and regional
economies over the short- and long-term,” the application states. “Spill response and clean-up creates business and employment opportunities for affected communities, regions, and clean-up service providers, particularly in those communities where spill response equipment is, or would be, staged.” That’s an angle that doesn’t sit well with Mayor Derek Corrigan, who called the idea “ludicrous.” “We thought it typified the kind of arrogant and insensitive nature of the oil companies and the oil distributors,” he
told the NOW. “When you’re in a position of having to try to rectify environmental damage and trying to fix a problem that is often almost unfixable, that’s not positive work.” Michael Davis, a senior director with Kinder Morgan, said the information was taken out of context from a very thorough 15,000-page application. “It was not written to be a standalone piece and in no way reflects any sort of appetite or acceptance for spills,” Davis told the NOW. “The piece from this large, thorough application is pulled out, out of
context, and is being used to suggest we might have some tolerance or acceptance for spills, and that’s not the case. I would say that borders on ridiculous.” Meanwhile, the City of Burnaby, one of the intervenors in the pipeline hearing, is filing roughly 1,500 questions to Kinder Morgan as part of the first round of information requests for the hearing. The city gathered input from local citizens and is planning to file the questions early, so other intervenors can see what information has already been requested, Corrigan explained.

Cayley Dobie staff reporter
his story, like many others, begins overseas. A man travelled to Belgium to meet up with some friends he had met earlier while adventuring around Laos. When he arrived in Antwerp, his friends took him to Dageraadplaats, a square made up of cafés and tables full of people drinking Belgian beer. This is where the man got hooked on the enticing aromas and flavours of Belgian beer. The man is Ben Coli, and soon he will be sharing his love of Belgian beer with consumers throughout Burnaby and the Lower Mainland when his new brewery, Dageraad Brewery, produces its first batch of brew. Coli began his venture into the brewing world with a friend and a secondhand home-brewing kit they bought off Craigslist. After dabbling in a few different varieties of beer, Coli tried his hand at crafting a Belgian-style brew. “I had some really good luck with my first couple of Belgian-style batches and got hooked on brewing them,” he said. “It’s just something in the complexity and just diversity of Belgian beer.” Beer in Belgium is known for its unique ingredients. Rather than stick with the traditional barley, hops, water and yeast, Belgians often incorporate other, seemingly random, ingredients such as oats, wheat, caramelized sugar, coriander, aniseed or thyme, to create a refreshing, light taste. When Coli began brewing his own Belgian beer, he said he would start by finding a beer he enjoyed and go from there. “Usually when I start off brewing a beer like this I say, ‘I want it to be like this beer but,’ and I make it a little different and make my own take on it,” he said. Dageraad Brewing is four years in the making. Named after the Flemish word for sunrise and Dageraadplaats, the place where Coli developed his passion for Belgian beer, the new brewery is located in a small industrial building near the Production Way SkyTrain station. Its humble location is a testament to Dageraad’s beginning – what began as a home brew has now taken the next step towards a full-scale brewery. With the grand opening and launch of Dageraad’s first batch still several weeks away, Coli and his team are working to perfect the art of Belgian beer on a larger scale than they’re used to. But compared to other breweries around the Lower Mainland, Dageraad is relatively small in scale, and that’s how Coli likes it. In order to perfect the brew, it’s best to keep it small, he said.

A Burnaby man is dead following a collision with a vehicle near Brentwood Town Centre Tuesday afternoon. Burnaby Mounties were called to the scene at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday when a vehicle struck a cyclist at Beta Avenue near the east entrance to Brentwood Town Centre. The victim, a 62-year-old Burnaby man, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to RCMP. “All indications are that the person on the bicycle failed to yield to traffic,” Staff Sgt. Maj. John Buis told the NOW.

Harper and Justice Minister Peter crime legislation beyond count have all Mackay are now being raked over the been crushed under judges’ gavels. Like
coals by the Opposition, law professors, the Canadian Bar Association, and editorial boards across the country for lashing out. And rightly so. McLachlin and the courts were only doing their jobs. And with the prime minister’s reputation as an ideologue and leader with little interest in the constitutional limits of his power, it is more important than ever that we have a robust, unflinching branch of government willing to assert its independence and put a check on executive’s power.
Harper seems to have a U.S. model of government in mind whenever he gets himself into a new mess. Perhaps, it’s time for him to remember what country he is in. Prime ministers and their governments come and go – even Harper’s Conservatives. The role of our laws and courts is to make sure the institutions and foundations the country is built on aren’t legislated away by just 155 whipped MPs. – Guest editorial from North Shore News
Hold on to those fleeting moments IN MY OPINION
’ve caught myself lately, when hugging my son, squeezing a little tighter than normal, pressing my cheek to his a little longer. I catch myself whispering “Mommy loves you very much. You make my heart very, very happy” against his temple, kissing his forehead a second or third time before I let him go play. At bedtime, when he throws his long six-year-old arm over my neck, I force my brain to slow, slow, slow and absorb the feeling of it, the solid lovely weight of his small bones against me. It’s suddenly very clear to me that these days are ending. These days of endless hugs and kisses, of wanting to hold my hand the second he comes out of the school door, of wanting to climb into bed for a cuddle, are winding down. Being a parent means always evolving into the next stage, the new thing, and realizing that it is as thrilling and interesting and funny and amazing as what came before. But time, as they say, certainly flies. I wish that I could say I was
the mom that relished every moment of my children’s lives from the second they were born. It would be a lie to claim it. I’m pretty sure I didn’t even relish every single moment of today (though today was pretty awesome, all around.) It’s enough to say, to my shame – because I’d really believed otherwise all those long months as he grew inside me – that motherhood did not come naturally to me. Motherhood, I suspect, does not come naturally to a great many people. But we’re not meant to talk about that, so we don’t. Mothering an infant is like doing highway construction work during a heat wave: sweaty, gruelling, mind-numbing, deeply exhausting, physically draining, and largely thankless. Except in this case, there’s no such thing as quitting time (a cold beer at day’s end would go a long way but, oddly, people tend to frown on that). It’s hard work, plain and simple. But the good stuff – oh, it’s good. You know the good moments when you see them: they sparkle like tiny diamonds. They make your heart pitter-patter, they make happy tears prick at your eyes, they make you go “yes, yes, see, this parent thing is going to work out. I haven’t screwed it up completely.” Motherhood Page 7
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Intersection is hazardous
Teachers’ demands out of line
Re: Police investigating fatal crash, Burnaby NOW online, May 6. Ever since the construction of Brentwood Gate project, Beta has become a hazard for cyclists and pedestrians crossing the street at the east entrance to the mall. The heavy volume of traffic coming off Brentwood Drive and the lack of a pedestrian crosswalk has made the street very dangerous. Now someone has paid with his life. It is time for the city to do something to make our neighbourhood safer – a pedestrian overpass or a pedestrian activated stoplight.
As of today, the governments in the provinces of B.C., Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island are working on contract negotiations with the teachers. No signed contracts in force presently. Teacher contracts are a hard sell in all 10 provinces. Alberta’s present contract, ending in 2015, is a four-year contract, with three years of frozen wages and a two per cent raise and a cash bonus in the fourth year. Saskatchewan’s last contract, ending in 2013, was a four-year contract with a 5.5 per cent wage increase. Manitoba’s last contract, ending in

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Wage demands too high continued from page 6
2013, was a four-year contract with a 7.5 per cent wage increase. Ontario’s present contract, ending in 2014, is a two-year contract with frozen wages. Quebec’s present contract ending in 2015, is a five-year contract, with a 5.6 per cent wage increase. Nova Scotia’s present contract ending in 2015, is a three-year contract with a 5.5 per cent wage increase. Newfoundland’s last contract, ending in 2012, was a fouryear contract with a wage increase of five per cent. Prince Edward Island’s last contract, ending in 2013, was a two-year contract with frozen wages. New Brunswick’s present contract, ending in 2016, is a four-year contract with a wage increase of four per cent. Here in B.C., the government is offering the teachers a 10-year contract, with a
7.25 per cent wage increase over the first six years, with further open wage negotiations, in written form, after six years on the remaining four years. Not good enough for B.C. teachers. They want a wage increase of 13.5 per cent over a three-year contract. Not good enough for the B.C. taxpayer. The average B.C. teacher wage is $89,624 per year ($70,624 in wages and $18,000 in taxpayer funded benefits). The B.C. taxpayer also contributes 16.13 per cent of teacher wages to the B.C. teachers’ pension fund. All in all, a very generous salary and benefit package when teachers only have to work 188 days per year in relation to other taxpayers in the non-teaching profession who have to work 238 days per year. Completely outrageous wage demands in comparison to what teachers have negotiated in the other nine provinces.
Like when your child presses his hand into yours, squirmy and damp and so delicate, like a baby bird snuggling up against your palm, and you feel the fierceness of your love rush through you and you have to hold yourself back from squeezing too tightly because you just want to hold on to this one bubbling moment; when he flings his long, lanky six-year-old arm over your neck as you lay next to him at bedtime and he says, in a voice too loud for bedtime (as usual), “Mama, I love you. You’re the best mama in the universe.” Yes. I’ll collect up these treasures, these little drops in time, and store them up inside, keep them for later. One day not all that long ago, he told me to
“Go, go, Mama!” and waved me back to the car when I brought him to the second day of skateboard camp. Soon, he won’t rush to take my hand as he rushes from the school doors – he’ll wait, maybe, until we’re out of sight of friends. Or until we’re home. And in a few years, when I look for hugs and kisses, he’ll want to brush me off. “Mom! Enough!” he’ll say. He’ll have friends to play with, books that need reading, video games to figure out, homework to do. And that’s good. That’s life. That’s the way it’s supposed to be. I would not wish to keep my children the same age – parenting small children is hard work, harder work than I care to do indefinitely, and

I love that each passing day brings new growth and independence. Still, I know right now that, in that moment when he turns away, I will crave his little baby bird hand in mine with a terrible intensity. Lately, when I catch myself hugging him a little longer, or pressing my forehead to his, I suspect I’m trying to memorize the way it feels so that when the moment comes, I can bring it to mind again. I’m soaking him up, so I’m ready for the dry season. Christina Myers is a former NOW reporter, and current freelancer and stayat-home mom.

Workplace death sparks criminal investigation Cayley Dobie staff reporter
A former construction worker who was badly injured in a 2012 workplace accident that killed his co-worker might have finally found the justice he was looking for. For nearly two years, Thomas Richer has been demanding “justice for Jeff” after his friend Jeff Caron was killed while the two men were laying pipe in a trench at a Burnaby worksite. On Oct. 11, 2012, the retaining wall next to the trench fell down, crushing Caron and striking Richer. Both men were taken to hospital, but Caron did not survive his injuries. WorkSafeBC has since handed over the investigation to the Burnaby RCMP to determine whether or not criminal charges are warranted. When the NOW spoke with Richer on Thursday, he was still “taking it all in.” “It makes me feel really good,” he said. “Now if the RCMP do their job and Liberal government do their job, maybe we can get change for the Canadian workers that are seriously injured or killed on the job.” Richer has invested a lot of time into this cause and hopes a criminal investigation will make companies think twice about worker safety. “If you start giving them years in jail like they would do with anybody else who was not above the law, then the guy thinks twice after he gets out of prison,” he said. The issue of worker safety is one that touches people across the country, Richer added, and he hopes this investigation will help bring change for workers across Canada. Meanwhile, the criminal investigation

The RCMP is conducting a criminal investigation into the workplace death. into Caron’s death will continue here in the Lower Mainland. “WorkSafeBC has referred its investigation to the RCMP,” Megan Johnston, communications officer with WorkSafeBC, told the NOW. Johnston added that this is an unusual
situation for WorkSafeBC and something it hasn’t done often. According to the WorkSafeBC investigation report into the 2012 work site fatality, obtained by the NOW in March, both the City of Burnaby and the contractor, J. Cote & Son Excavating Ltd., were held
responsible for the accident that claimed Caron’s life, along with an engineering firm that conducted the survey of the site. Staff Sgt. Maj. John Buis confirmed the Burnaby detachment was investigating the incident but couldn’t provide any details as the case is ongoing.

Pipeline economics ‘fabricated’: intervenor Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
One of the intervenors in the Kinder Morgan pipeline hearing is claiming the economics case for the expansion project is fabricated – based on arguments made by the company’s own consultant. Marc Eliesen, a former deputy energy minister in Ontario and Manitoba, has reviewed Kinder Morgan’s economic argument in the application submitted to the National Energy Board. “My own analysis and
assessment of what they’ve put forward to the National Energy Board is this whole economic case is fabricated and fictitious,” he told the NOW. EliesenstatedthatKinder Morgan’s main energy consultant, Steven Kelly of IHS Inc., presented evidence on higher netbacks. “Netback” is a term used to describe the revenue from a unit of oil after the costs of bringing it to the marketplace are deducted. It’s meant to give oil companies an idea of how much money they can make on each unit of oil.
However, using netback analysis is something Kelly himself argued against in an earlier NEB tolling application because of the institutional IN BURNABY arrangement made between integrated oil operations, according to Eliesen. “At that hearing, Mr. Kelly testified that netback analysis is unreliable and limited,” Eliesen said. “And now he’s giving contradictory evidence.” The problem with using
this analysis, according to Eliesen, is there are fewer “trickle down” economic benefits when the products are traded between oil companies and their own subsidiaries and not on the open market. Furthermore, Kelly’s
case for the Kinder Morgan pipeline only has one forecast scenario, according to Eliesen, and it’s lacking a sensitivity analysis. Eliesen has four decades of experience in the energy sector and is the former CEO and president of B.C. Hydro. The NOW contacted IHS for an interview with Kelly but did not hear back by press time. IHS is a U.S.-
based consulting company that works with a wide range of clients, including defense analysts, global business leaders, military planners and international governments. No one was available to comment from Kinder Morgan, but the company plans to address Eliesen’s concerns through the hearing process. twitter.com/JenniferMoreau
Cyclist: 62-year-old killed in crash street that opens up onto Beta Avenue directly across from the Brentwood Town Centre parking lot is a dangerous intersection, adding that he himself has almost been struck several times. “I’m a fast pedestrian. I’m always watching and I hurry,” he said. Joudrey, who lives in an apartment nearby, said residents in the area had asked the city to install a pedestrian crosswalk when the condos at Beta Avenue and Lougheed Highway were still under construction. “The response from the engineers apparently had been they didn’t want to legitimize it as a crossing,” he said. However, the “crossing,” while not an official crossing, is used daily by people in the area trying to get to the mall, he added. Investigators are still processing evidence from the crash and more information is expected later this week. At press time, the Burnaby RCMP had not released the name of the victim. email@example.com

driver of the vehicle was doing anything prior to the crash that could have caused the accident – no distracted driving and no alcohol. “There doesn’t appear to be any infractions. I mean, the person was driving normally on Beta,” Buis said. Burnaby Mounties don’t believe the cyclist was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash as none was found at the scene. When the Burnaby NOW arrived on scene Tuesday, there were three vehicles, one parked on the west side of Beta Avenue and two parked in the middle of the street. Police believe that at the time of the accident there was a line of traffic waiting to turn left from Beta Avenue on to Lougheed Highway, which would have obstructed visibility. “We think a combination of the cars being stopped for the red going southbound and the hill may have obstructed somebody’s vision,” he said.

Burnaby honours young achievers Jacob Zinn staff reporter
Hardworking youth in Burnaby were recognized for their contributions to their communities on Monday. At the start of the last city council meeting, Mayor Derek Corrigan presented 26 young people with Youth Citizenship Awards, on behalf of the city’s Youth Voice committee. School trustees Ron Burton, Meiling Chia, Larry Hayes, Harman Pandher, James Wang and Gary Wong were also on hand. “Those in attendance today are youth that volunteer at recreation centres, lead girls’ groups, focus on bullying and selfesteem, organize volunteer programs and work with students who have special needs,” said Corrigan. “They’re involved in leadership groups, part of green ecoteams, they organize technology training for seniors. “These youth are local heroes.” The ceremony was part of Burnaby Youth Week, held every year during the first week of May. Youth Week is designed to build connections between young people and their communities. “Young people are often criticized and stereotyped, and this year’s group proves much to the contrary,” said Corrigan. “They really are people to be looked up to.” The award recipients included Maisaloon Al-Ashkar, Vanessa Bui, Albert Cherng, Andy Lin and Si Jia Wen. As well, certificates of recognition went to Jess Ashton, Hannah Aubert, Theo Best, Jeanne d’arc Mabalama, Joey Di Pietro,

St. Helen’s students help clean up the shoreline CLASS ACT
t. Helen’s Elementary Grade 7 students hauled 355 pounds of garbage out of the Confederation Park offleash dog park last month and raised almost $2,000 to resurface their playground to boot. It was the second year in row the Burnaby
kindergarten-to-Grade-7 independent school’s graduating class has cleaned up the dog park on the shores of the Burrard Inlet as part of the annual Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. “We just decided to carry it on as tradition,” Grade 7 grad committee fundraising chair Sandra Crema told the NOW. “Our kids next year hopefully will pass the torch on to the Grade 7s of next year.” Crema said this year’s St. Helen’s grads have worked hard all year to
raise almost $16,000 to resurface the school’s playground as a “legacy gift” to their school community. Cleaning the shoreline at Confederation Park was their gift to the wider community, Crema said. Almost 58 volunteers came out and removed a discarded bicycle, rubber dinghy, 37 spray cans and 43 dog poop bags from the park. To support their efforts, Vancity Credit Union, Westminster Savings Credit Union and TD Bank donated a combined $1,875 towards the school’s play-
ground, which will be unveiled at a year-end barbecue May 22.
May is upon us and that means elementary school spring carnival time. Two fundraising carnivals are scheduled for this month. University Highlands Elementary on Burnaby Mountain hosts its fourth annual Community Carnival Saturday, May 24 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will feature a barbecue, bouncy castle,
face painting, box-cart derby, pony rides and more for the whole family. On Friday, May 30, Forest Grove Elementary (8525 Forest Grove Dr.) hosts its spring fair from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Come out for carnival games, pony rides, cakewalk, raffle, silent auction, live performances, plant sale, concession and more. Proceeds from both events go towards enhancing school programs and resources.
Gilpin Elementary is
$4,000 closer to making its playground accessible to students in wheelchairs thanks to a decadent fundraiser at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts last month. Dubbed “An Evening of Indulgence,” the event saw 125 women descend on the centre to be pampered with food, vendors, spa services and raffle prizes – all for a good cause. Gilpin’s playground is currently inaccessible to a student at the school who uses a wheelchair, and Class Act Page 12

fundraisers are on a mission to replace it. “The physical exercise and socialization that happens on a playground is so important for all our children,” organizer Sydelle Murphy told the NOW. “Not only did this event bring the community together for an evening of
pampering (the women are still buzzing about it and have asked when the next one is), but we raised $4,000 towards our goal of an accessible playground. We have now raised a total of $20,000 and need another $25,000.” Gilpin is still accepting donations for the new playground. Tax receipts
are available for donations over $10. Donations of $100 will get your name on a commemorative plaque. For more information, call the school at 604-6648712. Do you have an item for Class Act? Send ideas from Burnaby schools to cnaylor@ burnabynow.com, or find her on Twitter, @CorNaylor.

Photographer’s images tops in Canada LIVELY CITY
Burnaby photographer is among the best in the nation. Anna Beaudry, a professional photographer from Burnaby, had four images accepted and exhibited in the Professional Photographers of Canada National Image Salon. The salon includes images judged by a panel of master photographers from across Canada, selected in a competition in 21 different classes, including press, portrait,
architecture and fashion. Beaudry notes that one of her selected images, Winter Oasis Destinations (pictured at right), was created with the help of the team at Nita Lake Lodge in Whistler. “Before I could make the image, guests were requested to leave their lights on before they went skiing, and we had someone directing traffic while I was up on a ladder in the middle of the road,” she said in a press release. “Needless to say, my client was thrilled to learn that image scored a merit.” Check out www.ppoc. ca/blog/2014-nationalimage-salon-gallery to see more of the selected photos.

Dispensing knowledge: Burnaby-raised pharmacist Larry Leung reviews medications and natural-
health supplements with a senior in her Bella Coola home.
A prescription for help Cornelia Naylor staff reporter
When Nuxalk First Nation senior Eva Mack first met Burnaby’s Larry Leung, she came carrying a bag of pills. The 76-year-old was taking 11 different medications plus insulin shots to help with diabetes, kidney disease, lung disease and heart problems. She had come to the Bella Coola hospital to see Leung, a recent UBC pharmacy grad, for reassurance. “I just wanted to make sure that my pills were the right ones I was taking and that I was doing the right thing,” Mack told the NOW in a phone interview. “He was able to go through my whole pill list with me and explain everything about them and even recommend that some I should take more or take less or not take at all.” Such opportunities to sit down with a drug expert and make sure prescriptions and drug regimens are up to date are very rare – especially in remote aboriginal communities. Leung and his business partner, Jason Min, are working to change that. And last month, their pioneering work was recognized with a B.C. Community Achievement Award. Since 2010 Leung and Min have taken their business, Clinicare Pharmacists, into First Nations communities to dispense, not pills, but information. It’s a service that’s sorely needed. Since out-of-the-way communities are often served by only “locum” or temporary doctors, Leung said, residents are sometimes prescribed medications that aren’t reviewed for a long time. “They just get kind of left on it, and it just gets refilled over and over
again,” Leung said. “When that hap- months, with Leung and Min usually pens, sometimes patients get left on a piggy-backing their services onto to other specialized collaborative clinics lot of medications.” With an aging population and new – like foot-care clinics or blood-presdrugs coming onto the market all the sure clinics – or tagging along on time, expert information about drugs home visits with home and community care workers. has never been more “During our first goimportant. around in any commuAnd Leung, a nity, the biggest thing Burnaby North grad, is is probably compliance part of a new wave of and unnecessary drugs pharmacists who plan and expired meds,” to spend their careers Leung said. giving out that informaIt’s “super satisfytion instead of dispensing,” he said, to help ing drugs from behind patients sort through a counter at a traditional old medications and drug store. prescriptions. “I think Larry and “I absolutely love Jason probably got the it,” he said. “The comidea from where the promunities are amazing. fession is going,” UBC The people are amazpharmacy professor ing, the fact that I get Barbara Gobis said, “but to spend an hour with the rubber really hits the a patient, talking about road when somebody their health, talking has the courage and the about how to take your creativity to take an idea medications properly and put it into action, Larry Leung and then making recand that’s what Larry Recognized for his work ommendations to the and Jason have done.” Leung and Min founded Clinicare physician.” With enough time, pharmacists can during a one-year UBC pharmacy resialso learn about patients’ values and dency the two shared.

A two-door Canadian favourite, now improved Brendan McAleer
When the 2012 Honda Civic emerged as a new, less-expensive, de-contented model, the critics were unequivocal in their denigration. “This isn’t a proper Civic!” they cried, and scurried to their keyboards to ladle out the vitriol. The public was aghast and recoiled in horror. Like ripples in a pond, the effects of the criticisms quickly spread, and soon the Honda Civic was still the bestselling car in Canada, by a landslide, for like the 16th year in a row. Wait. What? Yep, even if the Emperor does occasionally doff his undergarments, Canadians still can’t get enough of the efficient Honda Civic. We’ve been smitten since the days of the CVCC, and the love affair continues even when the big H makes a gaffe. Honda, to their credit, responded to the fingerpointing with admirable rapidity, and now brings out a facelifted and updated version of their perennial bestseller. Here, in the coupe, the Honda fan can find a marriage of a bit of personal style with that same sensible efficiency and durability. But has Honda done enough here to make sure they aren’t just resting on their laurels?
Redesigned sheet metal might not seem like a big deal to you or me, but when we’re talking about a volume-selling car with thousands made around the globe, a dollar or two per car soon skyrockets into the millions. Happily, that’s apparently a cost Honda is willing to pay. The new 2014 Civic Coupe gets an entirely new front end and a reworked rear treatment. It now looks even more differentiated from the sedan, and why else would you be buying the less-practical two-door except for stylistic reasons? Where the old one had more than a passing resemblance to a fourwheeled Dustbuster, the new Coupe looks more like a scaled-down version of the Accord Coupe. Sixteen-inch alloys are standard on this mid-
range EX model, and while there’s a lot of faux grille up front, the overall effect is a more aggressive little car. It’s sleek and just a little bit interesting.
Inside, the Civic Coupe’s compromises might outweigh the style benefits for the practically minded consumer. That cut-down roof certainly shrinks the headroom, and the rear seats are for emergency use only. Still, the trunk remains a useable size, and the cabin space for the front passengers is really quite reasonable. The forward view is just as good as the sedan, although the same cannot be said for the shrunken rear window, which restricts visibility to pillbox levels. Like all Civics, the Coupe continues its splitlevel instrumentation, which some love and some hate. Benefits include a high-mounted speedometer that removes the need for a heads-up display, and two colour-changing strips that provide instant feedback on the gas-sipping grade of your driving style. The bigger news here is the sheer level of available technology at a mid-range level. All Civic Coupes have things like heated seats, Bluetooth, and streaming audio, but the volume-selling mid-range model comes with stuff like a power moonroof, leather-wrapped steering wheel, USB input and Honda’s HondaLink system for infotainment. Then there’s stuff like the LaneWatch blind spot display. Debuting in the Accord sedan, this camera-based system shows a high-resolution view of the right side of the car every time the right indicator is put on, helping to show cyclists or other obstacles lurking in your blind spot. It’s not a substitute for vigilant shoulder-checking or properly setting your mirrors, but it is a handy assist. Beyond that, the trunk is usefully sized, though not as gargantuan as that of the Scion tC’s hatchback, and the rear seats fold with a 60/40 split. The cloth seat-covering is grippy and durable, similar to that found in the
Civic Si – it’s very comfortable after several hours of highway travel.
A new exhaust system gives the Civic Coupe a very mild performance bump. The 1.8L VTEC-

continued from page 20
it does provide a little more control over proceedings. Besides that, this is a willing little car that’s a bit let down by its overly light steering. Improvements to the chassis include a new firmed-up rear stabilizer bar, and the CVT does its best to keep the engine in its modest 143hp powerband. It’s actually quite good, though not quite as much of a driver’s car as all Hondas seemed to be in the heyday of the early 1990s. Having said that, the Civic is easily capable of effortless high-speed highway travel, and the light steering removes most elements of fatigue from racking up the miles. If you want zippy per-
As mentioned, the Civic Coupe includes heated seats, Bluetooth and front USB and auxiliary inputs. Move up to the EX and you get a power moonroof and the HondaLink connectivity, which can use your iPhone to provide navigation functions. It’s all handled through a great-looking touchscreen, though I did find myself wishing for a volume knob. The LaneWatch blind-
spot system is nicely highresolution and points the way for great camera coverage in compact cars. Fuel economy is better than ever, thanks to the CVT, with official ratings at 6.9L/100km city and 5.1L/100km on the highway. More realistically, highway mileage hovers in the high 5s at best.

Burnaby’s Volunteer Baby Cuddle Program
baby, feed and play with the baby so that the mom can do other things.”
Susanne has been volunteering with the Baby Cuddle Program since 2009 and other Burnaby Citizen Support Services Programs for many years
Imagine a young Burnaby mother who has just given birth to twins. She is up day and night, hasn’t slept properly for weeks and she is exhausted. And maybe there is no family around to help her. At this point a public health nurse will tell her of women volunteers who are ready to be of service. The unique Baby Cuddle program run by Burnaby Citizen Support Services gives hands-on assistance to allow mothers some respite. Relief is provided for all kinds of situations, from managing
twins and infant health issues, to post-partum depression. Baby Cuddle volunteers spend two to three hours with the family once or twice a week. Michelle Wilson, Burnaby Volunteer Community Resources Community Coordinator, describes the service this way: “The volunteer will take the baby off the mom’s hands so the mom can go lie down and have a rest, have a shower, or play with an older sibling she may feel she has been neglecting. The volunteer may cuddle the baby, change the
. . .you’ll be glad you did
Every situation is different, so services are adapted to suit each one. Before assigning a volunteer, Wilson visits the mother to consider what they need. Once she arrived at a home and found no infant but only two small children. The mother had to wait for the father to come home before she could visit her premature baby in Children’s Hospital. The father would keep one child, while the mother took an hour-long bus ride with the other child, to spend a hectic fifteen minutes in the hospital with the toddler and the baby. A volunteer was needed to entertain the toddler in the waiting room while the mother enjoyed a full hour alone with her infant.
Sometimes new mothers wonder why women are willing to volunteer in this program. The answer given by volunteers is often that they experienced motherhood struggles themselves and wish to help others who face such challenges. In some cases, the result is a lasting friendship.
Other programs from Burnaby Citizen Support Services are Children’s Clinic, Breast Feeding Clinic, Flu Clinic, Grocery Shop by Phone, Friendly Visitor, Shopping Buddies, Phone Buddy, Volunteer Drivers, Bus Outings and more. Michelle Wilson is always looking for additional volunteers for these as well as for the Currently the Baby Cuddle Baby Cuddle program.

TIPS ON BUYING WITHIN A
etro Vancouver represents the most expensive housing markets in Canada so it is no surprise that many people, especially young people, are considering pooling their funds with friends to split on the cost of a buying a home. This is often referred to as joint ventures and it can involve two, three or even more people. For example, say two friends who are all renting apartments at $1,200 per month realize that if they combine their savings and buy a house, the money they are spending on rent could cover the mortgage on a 2-bedroom bedroom condo. After holding the property for a while, they can then sell and share in the equity appreciation. It is a plan that is being used widely, according to Realtors, and it can be very successful. In one case, three ﬁrst-year students, with the help of their parents, purchased a three-bedroom townhouse near Simon
Fraser University. Four years later, at graduation, they sold the home and made enough money to partially pay oﬀ their student loans. It was certainly more proﬁtable than renting for the four years. Of course, there are some things to watch for. First of all, when arranging the mortgage the names of all the buyers should be on title. Note that the mortgage lender will often take the lowest credit score among the buyers as the base for the loan approval, so make sure all the buyers have good credit ratings. There should also be a strategy agreed to by all members of the joint venture. This should include, for example, what happens if someone wants out of the agreement earlier than others. Is a sublease allowed? What is the buy out provision? There should also be a clear agreement on the exit plan, for instance how long the property should be held before it is sold. There is also sharing in expenses, such as strata fees,
maintenance and utilities. Be especially realistic about your ﬁnances and abilities if you plan on buying a “ﬁxerupper’ as an investment. Renovations can be demanding and expensive and lead to a split in the partnership if no agreement is in place before work starts. All of these issues this should all be spelt out up front, ideally with legal help, before a friendship evolves into a real estate business arrangement. Investing rather than renting can pay great dividends: in the past ﬁve years, for example, the benchmark value of a detached house in Metro Vancouver has increased 12.9 per cent, and in the city of Vancouver it is up nearly 30 per cent.
Pooling resources to buy a ﬁrst home can be a smart move towards ﬁnancial security.

Improvement every step of the way Tom Berridge
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again, might well be a mantra Tamara Harris has taken to heart. The 23-year-old New Westminster middle distance runner is having a breakout sophomore season at the University of British Columbia and should be in the hunt for a medal in the women’s 800 metres when she competes at the NAIA national outdoor track and field championships in two week’s time. But it wasn’t always that way for the New Westminster Secondary School grad. “I just thought I was pretty average. I didn’t know how far I would be going,” said Harris about her high school years. She competed in the 400m hurdles at the provincial high school championships and was a quarter-miler at Douglas College, training mostly on her own in her first two years of post secondary. But that all changed when she transferred to UBC last year. UBC head coach Marek Jedrzejek tried her out at 800m, and Harris responded with an NAIA national qualifying standard in her very first outing. Although she failed to make the final of the metric half-mile at the 2013 nationals, the seed had been sown, said Harris. “Last year was the start,” said the New West Spartans club runner. “It was just consistent training and having a great group of girls I train with.

Every step she takes: Tamara Harris, front, is looking for a podium finish in the 800 metres at the NAIA outdoor track championships in two week’s time. I was just more focused, and I wanted to do well.” In just her second season with the Thunderbirds, Harris shaved a second off her outdoor 400m personal best and nearly three sec-
onds off her PB at 800m. “She’s in a very competitive group,” Jedrzejek said of her UBC training partners. “She’s such a hard worker and a fighter. …
It’s about learning from past experiences.” At the recent UBC/SFU Achilles Cup meet, Harris kept within striking distance of frontrunner Sarah Sawatzky, before catching
the Clan ace at the last turn and then outkicking her in a foot race down the straightaway to win by one-tenth of a second in the race to the wire in the women’s 800m. “She’s still learning, but now it’s in her experience arsenal,” Jedrzejek said of Harris’ tactical win over the SFU star. “She’s getting better and better every week. I wouldn’t be surprised if, by the end of the season, she’s like 2:07/2:08. She’s capable to do it.” This weekend, Harris will travel to Seattle for some speed work in the 400m at the Ken Shannon Invitational meet. Then it’s on to the small college nationals in two week’s time to defend UBC’s gold medal in the women’s 4x800m relay and a goal of a 800m final. “This year, every race has been a PB,” Harris said. Harris went to the nationals last season and came away with gold in the relay, but this time, anything less than a topeight finish in her individual event at the NAIA championships later this month would be considered a disappointment. “This year, I’m looking to qualify for the final. That’s my goal,” she said. Jedrzejek is expecting her to finish as high as third place overall at the nationals, and that’s all right with Harris. “I want to keep improving my times,” said the sophomore arts major. “I’ve been running all my life and always enjoyed it. I think that’s what it comes down to.”

Skate Canada B.C./Yukon honoured its inaugural class of inductees into the section’s Hall of Fame last Saturday. Canada’s first association woman president Billie Mitchell and former athlete, coach, administrator and artistic director Ron Vincent were inducted in the builder’s category, along with longtime Olympic judge Audrey Williams. Former world champion and Olympic medallist Karen Magnussen was inducted as an athlete, along with her coach,

North and Central to final Tom Berridge sports editor
Burnaby North survived an initial scare before downing a plucky Burnaby South team 2-1 in overtime to advance to the BurWest girls’ soccer final. Jasmine Manhas gave South an early 1-0 lead before North’s Megan Lai tied things up with three minutes left in the opening half. The two teams remained deadlocked through a scoreless second half, sending the match to extra time. Early in the first overtime session, Allyson Dickson caught South keeper Aime Morrison slightly off her line and right-footed a long ball into the back of the net for the eventual gamewinner. “It was a lot harder than the last game (a 5-0 win in the regular season), but that is expected,” said the Dickson. In the other semifinal, Burnaby Central also advanced to Thursday’s final with a similar 21 outcome over the New Westminster girls at Mercer Stadium. Central, the only team to beat the Hyacks in league play, got on the board in the opening 10 minutes on Reese Wright’s first of two scores. Wright tallied the gamewinning goal with a shot from inside the 18-yard box just before halftime. New West put the pressure on the visitors throughout the second half and finally spoiled the shutout bid with a hard strike by Celeste Bain from 35 yards out that beat the Central keeper. “I feel really bad for the girls. This team has only been together for about a month, but they’ve really meshed well, and I believed they could make the provincials,” said Hyack head coach Wayne McCarthy in an email. The high school district final was played Thursday (after NOW deadlines). AAA zone playoffs begin Monday at Burnaby Lake-West at 3 p.m.

WHL plucks six from winter club in junior draft Tom Berridge sports editor
The Burnaby Winter Club placed half a dozen players with Western Hockey League clubs following the May 1 bantam entry draft. Defenceman Nick Watson was the first AAA bantam Bruin selected overall, going 28th overall to the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the WHL Eastern Conference. Also picked up in the second round was BWC centre James Malm, who was picked up 44th overall by the Vancouver Giants. Two winter club wingers were drafted in the third and fourth rounds. Tyler Preziuso was selected 61st by the Medicine Hat Tigers, while 5-11 Burnaby resident Brett Didyk went 83rd overall to the Calgary Hitmen. “It’s kind of a relief. It feels pretty good,” said the 5-11 Didyk. “I was a little surprised (that no Bruins were drafted in the first round), but it doesn’t work like that. You have to prepare for the unexpected. … I went in with a positive attitude and was fortunate to be picked up by Calgary.” Didyk will now prepare for Team B.C. provincial camp in July and later in the summer try out with the B.C. major midget Northwest Giants. The date of the Calgary rookie camp has yet to be posted. Didyk added he owes a lot to the Burnaby Winter Club program and long-
time head coach John Batchelor, in particular. “Any kid would do anything to get into his program. He has higher expectations than other coaches I’ve had. He holds us all accountable. It’s a very professional system at the club,” said Didyk. Also picked up in the later rounds were Burnaby defenceman Will Warm and right winger Mackenzie Wight. Warm, a 5-10 blueliner, was chosen in the fifth round by the Edmonton Oil Kings. Wight went to the Seattle Thunderbirds in the seventh round.
Star in upset loss
Former Northwest Giants centre Jordan Weal was named a third star for the topseeded Manchester Monarchs following a 3-2 upset loss to the Norfolk Admirals in a final Game 4 in an AHL Eastern conference quarter-final last Friday. Weal had two assists in the loss, including a helper on the game-tying goal by Andrew Campbell early in the third period.
Burnaby Winter Club product Landon Ferraro posted a two-point night in defending AHL champion Grand Rapids Griffins Game 4 elimination of the Abbotsford Heat a week ago Friday. Ferraro iced the game with his first of the playoffs into an empty net. He also assisted on Grand Rapid’s go-ahead goal by Jeff Hoggan late in the second period.
Clan advance to NCAA Division II golf nationals Freshman Mike Mlikotic shot the low round of the day to help Simon Fraser University golf team claim a berth to the upcoming nationals. Mlikotic carded a four-under-par 68 on the final day of the three-day West/South Central Super Regional golf championships, tying with freshman teammate and recent Great Northwest conference champion Kevin Vigna for eighth place with 221 totals over 54 holes. Conference player of the year Mike Belle also finished strongly, firing a one-over-par 73. Freshman Craig Titterington also saved his best for last, carding a final round 75. Bret Thompson contributed rounds of 78, 77, 78 to
the overall team’s final day low combined score of 290. “The last rounds scoring was a reflection of our players’ ability,” said SFU head coach John Buchanan in a Clan press release. “The challenge for NCAA championship will now be to stay consistent and play to that ability.” SFU was sitting in a tie for 14th place, 17 strokes back, heading into the final 18 holes. The Clan team earned the sixth and final berth to the Div. II championships, nipping Colorado Springs by two strokes and Colorado Christian by three. “We knew it was going to be tough. There were a couple of sad faces after yesterday’s round. We came together on the put-
ting green this morning and came up with a game plan to take it one shot at a time,” said Vigna in the release. “We figured with a solid round we would have a chance. We’re just really happy to be going to nationals.” It is the first appearance for the second-year Clan golf program at the nationals. Host St. Edwards University won the team competition with a combined 14-over-par. Midwestern State’s Derek Oland won the individual honours, firing a four-under 212, including a final round 67. The NCAA Div. II championship will be held on May 19 in Allendale, Michigan. – Tom Berridge

Pulling away: Julia Grosso, in red, battles for a ball in Mountain FC’s 3-0 win
over the Vancouver Island Wave in a high performance Premier League under-14 girls’ soccer match at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-West last Sunday. The win, Mountain’s fifth in a row, improved the team’s record to 7-1, a full eight points up on second-place Fraser Valley.
Canada second at Jr. Challenge Burnaby’s Gabriel Ho-Garcia was named the best junior player following Canada’s silver medal finish at the 2014 Champions Challenge in Malaysia. The 20-year-old national field hockey team forward scored two goals in six games for Canada at the week-long international tournament in Kuantan, Malaysia. Canada’s junior men’s team lost to South Korea 4-0 in the tournament final.
The two teams drew 3-3 in the opening game back on April 26. Earlier in the competition, the Canadian team also lost to the host and current world No. 13th-ranked Malaysian team 4-3 but avenged that loss with a 5-4 victory on penalty strokes in the semifinals on Saturday. Canada also chalked up similar 3-2 wins over both France and Poland in the preliminary round.
