Cat burglar loves gloves Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Burnaby’s Dawn Palmer has a mystery on her hands. A few months back, she started noticing workmen’s gloves showing up on the floor of her home. Nylon ones, fabric ones, never in a matched pair, just singles – and they were found in the dining room, the back balcony and around the front door of her South Slope home. Assuming they belonged to her son, Palmer simply left them in his room and thought little of it. “Then I thought, ‘Wait a minute, there’s too many of them,’” Palmer told the NOW. Her son decided to count the gloves, and dumped a bag of them on the living room floor – that’s when the family realized there was something strange happening. There were just too many gloves. “I kept thinking this doesn’t make sense,” Palmer said, suspecting their family dog was up to something. It wasn’t until a day or two later that the Palmers finally figured out who was leaving the gloves. Sienna, the family cat, had a history of bringing home “presents” for her owners and would announce their delivery with attentiondemanding meows. “Sienna does her ‘mew, mew, I’m here, and I have a gift for you,’ and she’s standing right in front of the glove, and I’m like, ‘I can’t believe this, you are the glove bandit!’” Palmer says.

Sienna and her stash. This Burnaby cat has stolen more than 50 gloves, but her owners don’t know where they
are coming from.
The Palmers have had Sienna for years, and when the feline was younger, she would bring home gifts: birds, rats, mice and moles, for instance. “I was in India, and my daughter sent me an email (photo) of a rat floating in our toilet,” Palmer said chuck-
ling. “I was laughing hysterically because obviously she just dropped it in there. She loves to give us gifts, that’s what they do.” But Sienna is aging and has put on a few pounds, so Cat burglar Page 8
Pipeline: Kinder Morgan brings in SFU experts Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Can Kinder Morgan run a pipeline through Burnaby Mountain? That’s the multi-million dollar question the company is trying to answer by bringing in two experts from SFU, and their project will provide information on earthquake fault lines for the entire Lower Mainland. Kinder Morgan is working with SFU’s John Clague and Doug Stead to help determine the feasibility of the latest routing
option, which involves boring or tunneling through Burnaby Mountain to connect the storage tanks to the Westridge Marine Terminal. “(Clague and Stead) are going to be assessing all of the surficial geology and some of these geological features, such as the landslide on the north side of Burnaby Mountain,” said Greg Toth, senior project director for the pipeline expansion. “There are questions: Is there active faulting in the Lower Mainland area, or is there not?” Clague and Stead are both research

chairs and professors in SFU’s school of earth sciences. Clague is a geologist who specializes in natural hazards, while Stead is an engineering geologist with a focus on slope instability. One important piece of missing information for Kinder Morgan is whether Burnaby Mountain has fault lines of breaks in the earth due to landslides – a question geologists have not managed to answer, according to a company-commissioned review of geological reports and studies dating back roughly 100 years.
Pipeline controversy aside, Clague said he’s very excited about the project, especially because they will use Lidar imagery to search for faults in the Lower Mainland, not just on Burnaby Mountain. Lidar is a relatively new technology that uses lasers to scan surfaces to create detailed 3D images. The images Clague will be working with were shot from aircraft. Surface vegetation can be removed from the images electronically, so scientists like Clague are left with topographical maps

It’s a little bit of a hardship right now, but I think the risk is worth it in the end because I think we all feel like we’re standing up for something big.
It’d be nice if there was other options, but there’s not. The strike is the last option we really have to see any sort of effect.
It’s complicated. On one side you don’t want to have the students put out, and also though on the other side you want to make sure that the teachers’ voices are being heard
I want to help students, but this is a bigger thing that we’re fighting for.
I’m quite happy to walk out if that’s what’s required to say we mean this, we need this to change, we need it to be fixed.

A full-scale walkout eight days before the end of the school year threatens to create financial and organizational havoc for Burnaby teachers, but they say the sacrifice would be worth it. “I feel like I’m witnessing something big,” Cariboo Hill Secondary French teacher Sarah Winter said. “I feel like we’re at a point where this is the whole public education system that’s at risk, and I feel like we have to take a stand.” That being said, Winter has yet to look at her pay stub this week to see how rotating strikes and the government’s 10 per cent pay deduction for the teachers’ job action will affect her income. “Everybody else is talking about it,” she

As the labour battle between teachers and the province threatens to wipe out the rest of the school year, local parents are scrambling to make child-care arrangements. Ads for teacher-strike child care are popping up on Craigslist and Kijiji, including posts by people saying they are education assistants in the Burnaby school district who will be available to take care of kids if teachers walk out next week. But parents should think twice before settling on an unlicensed and unregistered childcare provider they’ve found online, according
to YMCA Child Care Resource and Referral program manager Diane Lee. “The parent would be the only one monitoring the situation, so there would be lots of questions,” she told the NOW. “Does this person have liability insurance? Are they over on their numbers?” Lee recommends parents get in touch with her organization, which offers free services for local parents and child-care providers. Besides making referrals to registered and licensed child-care providers, the organization has a wealth of information for parents about different child-care options. In response to the possible strike, the group has sent an email to providers to find out if

Earlier this week, B.C. teachers voted 86 per cent in favour of a full-scale strike that will start Tuesday barring a breakthrough at the bargaining table. Teachers could also be off the job Monday for a BCTF “study session,” during which teachers would review the union’s bargaining package.

Dear Valued Customers, It is with great pride that I congratulate Sears Metropolis at Metrotown and all of our associates as they celebrate the store’s 60th anniversary. Sears built this stand-alone store from scratch in May 1954 – our ﬁrst large-format department store in the country. When it opened, the Burnaby store had over 125,000 sq. ft. of selling space spread over three ﬂoors. Excitement about the store was so great that more than 25,000 customers visited on opening day. To this day, the Burnaby store remains in its original location, although our neighbourhood has grown. In 1986, Metrotown was built adjacent to the Sears store. Sears Metrotown has been remodeled numerous times and may undergo another makeover in the next few years as part of our proposed development in Burnaby. For the past 60 years, Sears has provided a wide selection of high-quality apparel, home furnishings, major appliances, mattresses, home electronics, furniture, outdoor power equipment and more at great prices. As a long-standing and trusted member of the Burnaby community, Sears recognizes the special bond we have with the people of this city.
We appreciate that many of our customers have been coming to us faithfully for decades. We will continue to work hard to earn and keep our customers’ trust and stand behind our products, services and promises. We build our business in communities like Burnaby every day, and it is critical to Sears that we continue to do so in the years to come. We recognize that you have a lot of choices of where to shop and want to thank you for your continued business. Sincerely,
Doug Campbell President and Chief Executive Officer Sears Canada Inc.

City council considers several developments Jacob Zinn staff reporter
There was no shortage of bylaws for Burnaby city council to look over on Monday night at its latest meeting, but not all of them made it through with flying colours. Council went through seven rezoning applications, including requests to permit a sales centre at 4750 Kingsway, two fourstorey mixed use developments in Burnaby Heights, a highrise with podium at 2450 Alpha Ave., the expansion of the gross floor area of a home at 7284 Braeside Dr., a child-care centre on Lougheed Highway, a lowrise residential building on Dawson Street and the installation of two skysigns at 3700 Willingdon Ave. Before calling the question, Mayor Derek Corrigan clarified that the applications were simply requesting to be received by council as information and that approval or denial of the proposed developments would come later. “These are simply permission to work with the planning department and they will later be advanced with reports, but it gives people an idea of some of the things that staff are working on right now,” he said. Council received all but one as information, as they referred the Alpha Avenue application to the community development committee for further analysis after Coun. Paul McDonell raised concerns with its recommendation to amend the concept sketch of the Brentwood Town Centre
Development Land Use Plan. First reading was given to a three-storey mixed-use commercial and residential development at 7174 Barnet Rd., as well as a five-storey mixed-use development in the Heights. Second reading was given to permit construction of a four-storey mixed-use development at 7604 Sixth St. and a residential sales centre at 4700 Imperial St. However, council tabled a bylaw for a conceptual development plan for a multi-phased industrial business park in South Burnaby that would’ve otherwise gone up for second reading. Consideration and third reading was given to a proposed three-storey stacked townhouse development, totalling 20 units, at 7670 Kingsway. On the spending front, more than $500,000 was OK’d for road and traffic improvements. Council gave its stamp of approval for designs of several major road projects, including the widening of Rumble Street between Gilley and MacPherson, enhancements to Edmonds south of Kingsway to Salisbury and proposed traffic-calming modifications to Cariboo Road, Stormont Avenue and Gaglardi Way. The rest of that $500,000 went to minor traffic management projects and various traffic control device upgrades. The Bob Prittie (Metrotown) branch of the Burnaby Public Library was given the thumbs up for $100,000 in furnishings and shelving, as well as $300,000 to add radio frequency identification security.

IN MY OPINION
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Rallying against smart meters Dear Editor:
This Saturday, June 14, will be a day of protest and learning for everyone opposed to B.C. Hydro’s smart meter program. Rallies will be held in Victoria, Kelowna and right here in Burnaby at Hydro’s smart meter headquarters.This is located at 9265 Glenlyon Parkway, just off Marine Drive. The Burnaby Foreshore Park, located just across the street, will be the rally location. Events get underway just before noon, rain or shine. If it rains, that will only show the dedication of those involved. So far our local politicians seem to be too busy to attend. That would be rather hypocritical for Mayor Derek Corrigan not to attend after he and
his council expressed opposition to smart meters in a recent letter to myself. And the ever-elusive Jane Shin, MLA, has also been invited but seems to have a full calendar. Kennedy Stewart, our MP, has been notified but hasn’t responded as of this writing. Too bad for them if these politicians miss an excellent chance to look good on election day. This rally will be a chance for all those interested to speak but especially those who have been bullied, threatened with cutoffs and hit with Hydro’s extortion fees for keeping their analog meters to express their views and fears about the dangers of these meters. Hydro has already failed in converting enough people in order to turn on the radiation-producing ZigBee chip in the new meters. Jim Ervin, Burnaby

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Settle the big questions Dear Editor:
Re: Pipeline questions: From terrorism to expropriation, Burnaby NOW, May 14. The article caught my attention as it related to a controversial topic. The article outlined the major environmental and economic risks in relation to Burnaby associated with the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline. It criticized the company’s emergency preparedness, effects on the surrounding real estate market and expropriation concerns. Although all of these concerns are legitimate in their own right, it would be much easier for all stakeholders if there was a comprehensive, provincewide energy policy. The biggest problem with this debate is that it is centred on the challenges associated with a specific project rather than on a more comprehensive approach to energy in our province. In order to limit risks and move towards
a better, more sustainable future, we must first decide on a set of energy priorities for the province, taking into account our economic, environmental and energy needs. Deciding on such criteria in a clear manner will allow our province to make informed decisions about the future. Furthermore, we have to examine our options realistically and decide where we want to invest our resources. For example, alternative energy works well when discussing the future and environmental sustainability, but do we have a realistic plan to put it into action and are we ready to commit to a changed way of life given the current economic outlook? Consulting on individual projects becomes easier if we settle the bigger questions first. A provincewide consensus on our future energy requirements and plans that consider the full consequences to our own way of life is the way to go. Bushra Gabreldar, Burnaby
Democracy: Just get out to the polls continued from page 6
being a bit too political and not being easy on the taxpayers), there isn’t much reason for the voters to be mad enough to launch a long march forward to city hall with the virtual torches and pitchforks or make that trip to the polls in huge numbers of the kind we haven’t seen in decades. Democracy is out there. It does exist. Within it will be up to the candidates to sell themselves and prove that they are worthy of the vote and the dollars paid by the taxpayer to build and strengthen Burnaby. A person to vote for is much better than voting against. Myself, I look at a candidate and ask myself:
Is this person worthy of voting for? Is this person actually going accomplish anything or is said person going to be complaining all the time? It’s much easier to complain than to be the person who is part of making the decisions. Yes, democracy does exist. It always has. Sometimes you end up with very good politicians who serve the city and not political interest. Some advance to become statesmen (or stateswomen). But it’s the voters – the people who make it work. Decide to stay home (as many NDPers did in 2013, which resulted in the dramatic end)? Don’t complain about the outcome. I’ve seen where just less than plus-five votes can
make all the difference. I’ve seen where plus-one vote makes a difference. Civic elections are actually the most important. It is at the civic level where decisions are made that affect our homes, our neighbourhood and our city. But it is also where one sees the worst participation rate, less than 35 per cent at the most. Democracy is very much in existence. It is your choice, and your vote. If you mark a ballot. As I’ve said heartily many times in my 30 years and 60 campaigns being out there on the streets for good candidates: Don’t forget to vote! Have a nice day! Paul Keenleyside is a Burnaby resident.

Comment via BurnabyNOW.com I capt. crunch: If the teachers were so concerned about Johnny and Susie and their education, they would ask for less for a raise and have the rest of what they originally wanted put back into the school system for the kids. There are some great teachers but the majority are just ﬂoating along for the pay, perks and time off while there is a small percentage who are probably a hindrance to teaching. … If the teachers and their union were so intent to do the right thing for the kids as they seem quick to point out, they would also run picket lines and info lines 24/7 right through the summer around the schools to show the public and parents that they are serious.

that are better than those based on conventional aerial photography. “It’s totally non-invasive. We don’t need to get permitting to acquire it. It’s all acquired from aircraft. It’s a tool to determine if there has been any ruptures from earthquakes,” Clague said. “I’ve always said we have to find out if there are active faults, and it plays into all kinds of risk and hazard-related issues.” Clague and Stead’s findings will very likely have larger implications for the rest of the Lower Mainland, since this is the first-ever survey of its kind for the region. As for the pipeline, Kinder Morgan is
proposing two options for the new mountain route within the same study corridor. The first is horizontal directional drilling, which involves boring a hole through the mountain and pulling the pipeline For a though with the drill, which would video, cost the company $24 million. The scan second option is tunnelling the line with Layar through the same corridor, which would cost $47 million. The third option is running the pipeline down Burnaby Mountain Parkway, then Hastings Street and Cliff Avenue, which would cost $20 million. Part of the company’s rationale for going through the mountain was to avoid the Westridge neighbourhood.
Cat burglar: Are the gloves yours? continued from page 1
Palmer suspects the gloves are easy “prey” for the calico. “Seriously, I think because she’s too fat now and can’t catch anything, she’s picked up this glove thing,” Palmer says, laughing. “I’m just so happy it’s not mice and birds anymore. … I would hate it when she brought them home.” But catching Sienna in the act only solved half of the mystery. Where the gloves are coming from is unknown, and Sienna keeps bringing more home. Palmer feels bad, because somewhere out there, someone is missing a whole lot of gloves, and her cat is to blame. Palmer has a few ideas on the origin of the gloves. She lives close to the couple recently featured in the NOW that installed the controversial massive stone pillars on their lawn, and
there’s a larger construction site near Royal Oak Avenue and Rumble Street. “Then I started thinking, ‘Could it be the school, is she going to the school?’ And there’s always new homes being built, but I can’t think of any, I don’t know – it’s just so bizarre,” she says. Palmer estimates Sienna has brought in more than 50 gloves in total and counting. “She’s still doing it! Every two days now, I find
another one, now I just throw them in the bag,” she says. “One day, I had the gloves in the bag, and I was holding the bag, and she’s meowing at me, as if to say: ‘Those are mine.’ It’s too funny.” Palmer would be more than happy to return the gloves to their rightful owners. If anyone is missing a large number of assorted gloves, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow Jennifer Moreau on Twitter, @JenniferMoreau

“HATS OFF” TO OUR SPONSORS, SUPPORTERS, AND ORGANIZERS Cornelia Naylor/burnaby now
On strike: Cariboo Hill Secondary teachers, support staff and canine companions picket their school during rotating teacher strikes Wednesday.
Hats Off Day is the pride of the Heights, and a highlight of Burnaby’s calendar. This community event would not happen without the generous support received from the following companies, organizations, and volunteer support from our community. To all of you, we extend our sincerest thanks. TOP HAT LEVEL SPOnSORS
Teachers: Strike means hardship continued from page 3
said. “I’m kind of afraid to look at mine.” Like all new teachers without a continuing contract, she doesn’t have the option of stretching an annual salary over 12 months, so summers are lean, and a walkout won’t help matters. “I would be lying if I said that it’s not going to be difficult financially,” Winter said. “I think all teachers are feeling the same way, but at the same time I think we’re feeling like it’s worth it in the end.” Teachers around the province voted 86 per cent Monday and Tuesday in favour of a full-scale strike. The B.C. Teachers’ Federation told its members in an email Wednesday night it was serving three working days’ notice for a full strike beginning Tuesday. Unless a deal is reached over the weekend, school could also be out Monday for a BCTF “study session,” during which teachers would review the union’s bargaining package. The union has already said it won’t be able to offer teachers their $50-a-day strike pay after this week. “I live paycheque to paycheque,” fine arts teacher Joan MacLean told the NOW. “I got my pay statement last night, and it’s quite a bit less than I normally get, so I can’t pay my bills. That’ll be the hardest
part.” Financial hardship won’t be the only challenge teacher will face if the walkout goes ahead, according to MacLean’s Cariboo Hill colleagues picketing during a rotating strike Wednesday. “There’s just so much year-end stuff to deal with as a teacher,” music teacher Kyle Axford said, “and it gets really, really tricky to try and do all of those things at the end of the year, and now if there is a walkout next week, then it’s going to mean that all that stuff is going to have to be done by Friday.” But Axford and other Cariboo Hill teachers appeared unanimous in their support of a walkout if government refuses to budge at the bargaining table. “At the end of the day, the government has the hammer if they choose to use it,” science teacher Adam Taylor said, “but that doesn’t mean we should stop fighting for a better education system.” Home economics teacher Jayne Roberts agreed. “It’s not something we choose lightly,” she said. “It’s years of frustration. I feel like the government has walked into my classroom and personally spit in my face. I really don’t think that they know what we do.” Follow Cornelia Naylor on Twitter, @ CorNaylor

Parents: Communication is critical continued from page 3
rest of the year. “Keeping parents up to date on developments as they happen helps,” Burnaby district parent advisory council spokesperson Jen Mezei told the NOW. She said local school and union officials have done their best to keep her parent group informed during rotating strikes over the last three weeks, but the labour battle has still created a lot of uncertainty. “Parents have voiced confusion at the misinformation and false assumptions that are around,” Mezei said. “It is confusing for some parents when the situation from district to district and even school to school can be different.” Among parents specific concerns are provincial exams, report cards, and final marks required for admission to post-sec-
ondary. On Thursday, the Labour Relations Board ruled provincial exams for Grades 10 through 12 and final marks for Grade 12 students essential services and, despite the strike, said teachers must supervise exams and submit final Grade 12 grades by June 20. The Burnaby school district is now in the process of consulting with the Burnaby Teachers’ Association about how many teachers would be needed to supervise exams from June 16 to 24 as per the Labour Relations Board order. The district has said it would send a letter to parents this week outlining details about report cards, provincial exams and year-end procedures. In the meantime it is warning parents Friday could be the last day of school.

Saving the world with small steps
urnaby resident Kyle Empringham and Sujane Kandasamy were awarded a Youth Conservation Award from the Canadian Wildlife Federation for their work on TheStarfish.ca, a website and non-profit organization focusing on positive solutions to environmental problems. The site attracts more than 180,000 visits per year, mostly from Canadians aged 15 to 30. The NOW’s Jennifer Moreau had a chat with Empringham.
Jennifer Moreau: Tell me the story behind the starfish name. Kyle Empringham: A boy walks up to a shoreline and sees hundreds of starfish washed up on shore, drying in the sun. He picks one up, looks out at the water, and tosses it back into the ocean. He repeats this process a few times before a man walks up to him and says, “There are too many starfish on this shore. You won’t save them all and you won’t make a difference.” The boy picks up another starfish, tosses it into the ocean, and says to the man, “I made a difference to that one.” The Starfish Canada is about how every contribution to environmental efforts can make a difference. From the conservation of species to energy reduction initiatives, we showcase a wide range of community projects that inspire and motivate our readers to take action locally. JM: Is TheStarfish.ca an online publication or an activist group? KE: We are predominantly an online publication that provides a forum for youth to showcase the amazing work that’s being done across the country. Canada’s sheer size makes it difficult to understand what is going on in the environmental field, particularly at a local level. Our community-based approach allows Canadians to understand what youth are doing to create a better future for our nation. We also host

Youth leaders: Burnaby’s Kyle Empringham just landed an award from the Canadian Wildlife Federation for his work on TheStarfish.ca, an eco-blog and organization that takes a positive approach to solving tough environmental problems. workshops in local communities to understand what’s important to each area and how we can best assist them in achieving their goals. JM: Your group does workshops with students on subjects like invitro meat. What is that and what are the issues around it? KE: Scientists have come up with a way to create meat in the lab – no animal cruelty required. With this new innovation, we have gone to classrooms and asked students to debate whether or not they would eat lab-grown meat. It’s a great way to think about a wide variety of issues – the ethical treatment of
animals, the greenhouse gases that are produced from raising cattle and transporting meats, and more. JM: We’re bombarded with stories about worsening climate change and oceans acidifying – a lot of scary and very real phenomenon, but you’ve chosen to focus on positive solutions. Tell me a bit about that strategy. Why is it so important to stay positive? KE: Environmentalism is sometimes thought to be rooted in problems. When you think of environmentalism, you might be reminded of climate change or the loss of iconic species or toxins in our air and waters – those
are issues we have to overcome to have a healthy, clean community. It can be downright depressing to think of all the challenges we are facing. Our approach focuses on optimism because it’s productive. It helps our readers – environmentalists and non-environmentalists alike – to see the way forward, that solutions are available and plausible and that we can work together to create change. JM: What are our most pressing issues on the environmental front in Burnaby? KE: I think the biggest issue on the mind of Burnaby residents is the proposed Kinder Morgan
pipeline that’s now planned to cut through Burnaby Mountain. I’ve seen and heard lots of opposition to pipelines on the B.C. coast. Solutions will require a consistent voice from Burnaby residents and the municipal government that states a clear position on whether a pipeline is what the community wants and for stakeholders to give those opinions large weighting in the decision-making process. Making environmentally conscious and sustainable communities requires listening to constituents and letting them be the driving force behind community growth – ignoring that would be a mistake.
24-Hour Relay at Swangard Stadium this weekend HERE & NOW
he B.C. Lions Society is hosting a relay this weekend in

So if you’re out for a stroll in the park, be sure to cheer these folks on, because they will be running for a good cause, to send children and young adults with physical and cognitive disabilities to summer camp. For more information on the camping program, go to www.easterseals camps.ca.
We have a free copy of Severn and the Day She Silenced the World by Janet Wilson, published by Second Story Press. Severn Suzuki is the daughter of David Suzuki, well-known scientist and environmental activist. Not to be overshadowed by her dad, Severn made
a name for herself with a powerful speech in 1992, given at the first Earth Summit in Brazil. She was just 12 years old then, but her words shook the adults in the audience, and a Youtube video of her talk, titled The Girl Who Silenced the World for 5 Minutes, went viral on the Internet, garnering more than 27 million hits.
(If you haven’t seen the video, I urge you to watch it; it’s an incredibly powerful speech and it gives me chills every time.) The book, Severn and the Day She Silenced the World, is based on true events, featuring Severn’s tale and the obstacles she overcame with the kids’ organization she started to

Question: I have had a wisteria for several years that is full of leaves and looks very healthy. But it has only produced two flowers: one last year and one this year. Please advise. Madeliene Quiban Answer: A lot of people have problems with a wisteria failing to flower. Sometimes it’s just too young. Five to 12 years is the average wait before blooming time, but some take longer, especially if they’re grown from seed. If you inherited the wisteria when you bought your home, the wisteria could be a seed-grown one, or perhaps a cutting from a seed-grown one. Besides not flowering for many years, seed-grown wisteria are erratic bloomers – an occasional one never flowers at all. Sometimes people take a cutting from an old wisteria that’s full of flowers – but they don’t know how many years it took to get to that stage. Though cuttings usually flower faster than seed-grown wisteria, cuttings still need several years of vegetative growth to get started. The fact that your wisteria has started flowering, even a little, is very hopeful. But you can hurry your wisteria along a bit. For wisteria, a highphosphorous (not highnitrogen) fertilizer is best because it encourages flowers. Wisteria should always be fertilized in fall (not spring). Wisterias like good drainage, too. Could yours possibly be growing on soggy clay? Regular pruning is essential to keep your wisteria from outgrowing its support and to stimulate flower buds. In late summer, cut back the new growth to five or six buds and tie any that you want to keep to your arbour. The wisteria will keep growing through fall, so in winter you prune new growth back to five or six buds again, then in early spring cut back to two or three buds. Send gardening questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.

2014 CLA-Class Coupe: new car, new customer David Chao
he Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class joins the lineup in 2014, offering a sleek four-door coupe design for less than $35,000 – a true accomplishment considering that the CLA offers many features and design elements that make the car look and feel much more expensive.
Mercedes-Benz considers the CLA-Class an entry-level luxury product; but that does not mean it is not a premium car. Mercedes’ aim is to bring new customers to the brand through innovative design and premium features. Mercedes pioneered the four-door coupe design concept with its CLS-Class. The description “four-door coupe” sounds odd, but it’s best to think of this car
as a coupe which has a set of rear doors to make entry into the back seats easier. The four-door coupe body design does come with one big advantage, and that’s aerodynamic efficiency. The CLA boasts the lowest drag coefficient of any production sedan at 0.28. The CLA is based on Mercedes-Benz’s B-Class architecture; as a result it is noisier and less refined than its larger siblings. Another byproduct of using the B-Class structure is that the base CLA is front-wheel drive. This makes it the first FWD car Mercedes-Benz has ever sold in North America.
The base model, the CLA 250 Coupe, comes with a 2.0-litre turbocharged four cylinder which produces an admirable 208 hp and 258 ft-lbs
of torque. At full throttle, engine noise may be a bit more noticeable in the CLA than in one of its pricier stable mates, but it can still accelerate to 100 km/h in 6.7 seconds. The overall performance is excellent. The CLA also tackles corners remarkably well. It shows lots of grip and is well balanced. Pushed too far though, and its FWD nature comes through with noticeable body roll and understeer. The electric power steering provides a sporty, reasonably weighted feel, but the “road feel” is noticeably absent as the particular design of electric steering system makes it difficult to transmit what is actually going on underneath. The Electronic Stability Program can help stabilize the CLA by braking individual wheels and adjusting engine output. Those looking for
Mercedes-Benz: The style and reasonable price of the CLA-Class Coupe should appeal to customers who may not have considered a Mercedes-Benz before. more performance can opt for the CLA 45 AMG 4MATIC. Aside from being equipped with an AWD, it boosts the horsepower to 355. AMG’s SPEEDSHIFT DCT seven-speed sports transmission is also a part
of the package, allowing the car to hit 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds. Safety is also a priority for Mercedes-Benz, and the CLA is no different. It comes standard with multiple features like airbags,
Attention Assist – which will wake you should you fall asleep behind the wheel – and Collision Prevention Assist, which will warn you if you get too close to the car in front Mercedes-Benz Page 24

Mercedes-Benz: CLA-Class boasts stylish good looks at reasonable price continued from page 21
and even apply the brakes.
The cabin of the CLA is a true Mercedes-Benz interior, meaning it’s modern, luxurious and even a bit trendy (yes, in case you haven’t noticed, Mercedes’ interior has been hip and cool lately). It has many of the features found in its pricier siblings, though toned down to keep things simple. The front seats are very firm yet comfortable – with a good side support – and it offers an electric driver’s seat with memory function as standard. In the rear seats, the swooping roofline leaves only child-friendly headroom, which is a shame as there is a good amount of legroom. The roofline also results in a very narrow rear window that restricts visibility considerably, but we did say that this car is a four-door coupe, didn’t
we? On the equipment front, the CLA hasn’t lost much in the process of being transformed to an affordable Mercedes. The dash is striking with the command screen floating over the centre stack. Standard models come with a 5.7inch screen but a larger 7inch display is available. Trunk space is also quite reasonable at 470 litres. The opening is a bit narrow, but it’s nicely finished inside and the rear seats fold down 60/40 for more room.
The CLA 250 Coupe starts at $34,300, with AWD adding $2,200. The premium model, called the Edition 1, starts at $43,200. The CLA 45 AMG 4MATIC begins at $49,800, with Edition 1 models priced at $65,900. Standard equipment includes an ECO start/ stop function, instrument panel with a 4.5-inch

The CLA brings surprising level of features, design elements and performance for the dollar. The car gets “looks” from everyone, thanks to its glamorous swooping lines.
While the CLA does have four doors, the rear seat headroom is limited and its overall level of refinement can be better.
The Bottom Line
Stylish good looks and a very reasonable price.

Lively City: UniverCity hosts outdoor music continued from page 18
She’ll be reading from Something Fierce. The event is free, and registration isn’t needed – just drop in to the library at 6100 Willingdon Ave. For information, call the library reference desk at 604-436-5400.
Nothing says summer more than outdoor music. If you happen to be up UniverCity way this summer, then don’t forget to pop by SFU Town Square on Wednesday afternoons
to check out the summer busker series. Performances run from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the square (on University High Street beside Renaissance Coffee and the second transit loop). Next week – Wednesday, June 18 – features Clara Shandler, known as the “Sidewalk Cellist.” Shandler takes her carbon-fibre cello out to the streets and provides a musical mix of “everything from Bach to Nirvana, jazz to heavy metal,” a press release promises. (See
more about her at www. sidewalkcellist.com.) On June 25, you can hear from Kaya Kurz, a 16-year-old singersongwriter from Alpha Secondary School who’s into music, writing poetry, Doctor Who, zombies and “nerd culture in general,” the release says. On July 2, the performance features singersongwriter The Land of Deborah. Other performers through the summer include singer-songwriter Matt McAllister, the string
duo Stringz Aloud, violinist Zelko Krakan, and the fiddle-guitar duo Cosmic Wink. The busking series runs Wednesdays until Oct. 1. Check out www.univercity .ca/events for more details about the event and the performers. Do you have an item for Lively City?

CAN MAKE BUYER FALL IN LOVE
hen it comes to putting the best face forward when it is time to sell a home, sometimes a “lipstick” renovation is all that is needed to make a potential buyer fall in love. “Fresh paint, new address numbers and a good cleanup can really make a diﬀerence,” advises real estate consultant Ozzie Jurock. “Such lipstick renovations can really pay oﬀ.” “First impressions are everything when selling your home, and paint is the easiest and least expensive way to create an appealing atmosphere for potential buyers,” says paint expert Alison Goldman, of CIL paint. “The more attractive and comfortable you make your home, the more it will entice prospective buyers to make an oﬀer.” According to Goldman, vendors can be a bit daring with their colour choice. “Contrary to popular
belief, colours with personality have been shown to be more eﬀective at closing a deal. In fact, soothing shades of green, brown and yellow paint may even help a home sell faster than white or beige.” She recommends earth tones such as muted shades of green, brown, yellow, blue, red, grey and tan. “They create a warm and inviting environment.” There are some tips when freshening the home for suitors, er, buyers, • Look at the property from a buyer’s perspective. Don’t think of it as your home anymore. You’re selling a product now. • Since your furnishings will be going with you when you move, select a colour scheme best suited to stationary items, such as ﬂooring, cabinetry and countertops. When choosing paint for a living or dining room, for example, hold paint swatches right next to the ﬂoor, not only in the middle of the wall,
to ensure the tones work well together. Painting a focal wall in a warm colour adds personality to a room and may draw increased interest from prospects. This technique is especially eﬀective in key rooms like the master bedroom and dining area, where a splash of colour adds charm to a space without overwhelming it. Use colour to highlight impressive features of a home or detract from less desirable elements. For example, upgrades such as crown molding can be accented by painting them a colour that contrasts slightly with the walls. Smaller spaces can be visually expanded with shades of cool blue or muted green, and a dark entryway can be warmed up with sunny yellow to maximize the play of light. “For a minimum investment, paint can help yield maximum return when selling your home,” Goldman says.

Burnaby Special Olympics has its own Angels in the outfield. The team of 16 local women with intellectual disabilities recently fielded what is believed to be B.C.’s first-ever all-female team at a mixed Special Olympics softball tournament in Coquitlam. The Angels, who have been practising diligently at Willingdon Park for most of the spring season in preparation for their first realtime game, finished third overall. In the tourney, the women defeated an all-male team and lost to another, while tying its last game with a coed team. “They were pretty ecstatic,” said Burnaby softball coach Paul Colvin. “The whole concept began a few years ago when I was the program coordinator for Special Olympics Burnaby,” Colvin said. There was a drive to increase the numbers of female athletes, and what resulted has been a number of firsts for the Burnaby women. In 2008, there were enough athletes to form the organization’s first all-female curling team. The Rockettes went all the way to the Special Olympics Canada national games. Two of the local women on that curling team were selected to go to the World Games and Colvin and his wife went along to support them. At the worlds held in Greece, Colvin witnessed an all-female softball team from the host nation taking part. Shortly after that, somehow the seed was sewn for a similar experiment right here in Burnaby. “I don’t know if they had heard me talking about it but it was them that came up with the idea,” Colvin said. He agreed to help, but on one condition. “They had to go out and recruit the girls and they did it,” he added. The team brought 16 women

Three others came over from a mixed team they played with the season before. “A lot of my friends just wanted to try it,” said Artisia Wong, one of the starters on the 2008 women’s curling team. “I said, ‘If you don’t like it,’ but they all liked it, so we’re going to do it next year.” The experience was empowering for the women and positive on a number of levels, said Colvin. “They have all shown improvement in every aspect of the game. They feel safe and secure, and

they have grown,” Colvin said. “Everyone was successful at batting and making plays in the field.” But perhaps more importantly, they learned to trust and support each other. One player got hurt and couldn’t play, but became a super go-to person in the dugout. Another, who was one of the more competitive athletes and used to get down on herself when things didn’t go right, has become one of the strongest supporters of the other girls on the team. “The main thing is the support they give each other. They are in
tune that they are on an all-female team,” said Colvin. “Yeah, it was our best times together,” Wong added. “It was good, we were the first team for curling, too. That was fun, you didn’t have guys telling you what to do.” And that realized identity has spawned a whole new set of possibilities for the women. “A lot of us are trying to ask Paul for a floor hockey team that’s not too competitive. “Yeah, I am (proud). I think it’s more better girls helping each other. With boys, they expect you to do it,” she said.
Ringette Canada reports the number of registered players in Canada is going up nationwide. As of the end of the 2014 season, total numbers for all of Canada reached an all-time high of 30,398. Increases in player numbers were highest in Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, but Alberta, Quebec and B.C. also achieved significant increases, stated Ringette Canada. “This is an exciting time for ringette in Canada. Athletes have many options to excel in sport across this country and reaching this significant milestone speaks volumes to what ringette has to offer,” said executive director of Ringette Canada Natasha Johnston in a media release. “This is something our entire ringette community can be proud of.” To register for the upcoming ringette season, go to the Burnaby/New Westminster association website at bnwr.ca and click on registration.
