The cutouts were part of the museum’s celebration of the Burnaby RCMP’s 65th anniversary. Labour Day was the final day of the museum’s season, and staff and volunteers toasted the season with oldfashioned games, entertainment, a children’s craft area, market vendors and free carousel rides.

Dispute not music to some ears

Labour dispute at BCAA has neighbours complaining about car horns, cheers and motivational music By Janaya Fuller-Evans

jfuller-evans@burnabynow.com

What sounds sweet to locked-out workers is causing headaches for some Burnaby residents. Car horns, cheers of support and loud music is often the motivational fuel behind any picket line. But in the case of the tow truck dispatchers locked out by the British Columbia Automobile Association, that

picket line is close to a residential building, South Legacy Tower. Burnaby council received three letters – two from the same person – from residents of 5611 Goring St. about the cacophony caused by blaring car horns and noise from the picket line itself. “Goring is a very busy street and the cars honking go on all day, almost non-stop. The worst is the large trucks with very loud horns, many of them air horns,” James Tin-

Hearing is a priceless gift. Don’t take it for granted.

dle wrote council in June. “It is so noisy that residents cannot open their windows despite the extreme heat we are experiencing. With the windows completely closed, we are basically prisoners in our own homes, through no fault of our own.” Tindle wrote again at the beginning of August, stating that the horn honking begins as early as 5 a.m. and continues into the evening. Burnaby RCMP came to Tindle’s apart-

But he wants the RCMP to enforce the city’s bylaw regarding when to operate a horn.

A SEISMIC SHIFT:

Burnaby North MLA Richard Lee, fifth from right, joins schools officials and students for a photo at Alpha Secondary Wednesday after announcing seismic upgrade projects worth a total of $31 million for two Burnaby schools.

Alpha gets $27 mil for seismic upgrades Cornelia Naylor

cnaylor@burnabynow.com

More than three years after the provincial government announced seismicupgrade funding for Alpha Secondary, the Burnaby school district finally has the money to start the job. Work on the $27.2-million project, which includes a partial replacement of the school, is expected to begin in spring 2016 and be

complete by summer 2018, according to a ministry of education funding announcementWednesday. “These improvements and classroom additions are part of the province’s award-winning seismic mitigation program that provides children, teachers and staff with safe, modern and protected learning environments,” said Burnaby North MLA Richard Lee, who made the announcement at

Alpha Secondary on behalf of Education Minister Mike Bernier. The school board had already jumped the final hurdle in the funding process a week before, passing a pair of capital project bylaws last Tuesday – one for Alpha and another for Montecito Elementary. “This actually is providing access to the funds, so the next step for us is to solidify an agreement for an

architect,” secretary-treasurer Greg Frank told the NOW last week. After some detailed design work over the winter, he said the district hopes to start prep work on the two sites as early as May or June. Alpha and Montecito were among 24 Burnaby schools assessed by the province to be at high or moderate risk of damage during a major quake.

The district had hoped to see 60-year-old Alpha replaced entirely but was told funding wasn’t available. The project will now see a partial replacement of the school, with the three-storey and one-storey classroom wings being replaced and the rest of the building undergoing seismic upgrades. The work will increase the school’s student capacity from 1,025 to 1,100. Detailed plans have yet

to be drawn up, but Alpha principal Paul Fester hopes the new buildings will include some common, collaborative spaces, currently lacking in the two classroom blocks. “To be honest, that would be my one big thing,” he said. “The rest of it, I think, will just happen by nature of it being a new building, but if we have collaborative, Continued on page 10

Lockout: ‘Honking is going on all day, all night ...’ Continued from page 1 added his quality of life was being affected. “I hope council members understand what this is like,” he wrote. “Honking is going on all day, all night and every day, including air horns from buses, fire trucks and semi-trailers.” City staff noted on the letters that the Burnaby RCMP had received multiple complaints about the noise issue, and that a member of the community response team had been assigned to the file. “While enforcement is an option, the initial approach will be one of education and awareness of all involved,” states the note, which was added to the letters in

council’s correspondence packages. Burnaby RCMP did not respond to requests for information about the issue before press time. David Black, president of COPE 378, said those on the picket line are doing what they can to minimize the noise but added they are only there due to the lockout. “We’ve had one person yelling at us to go back to work, and that’s sort of ironic, since it’s a lockout and there’s nothing our members there would rather have than go back to work,” Black told the NOW. Those on the picket lines try to keep it down in the evenings and

overnight, he added. “We spent an extra $1,000 to get an especially quiet generator,” he said, adding it’s telling that no one has complained about noise from the generator. “We’re glad that we did that, to be respectful of the neighbours.” Despite the complaints, Black said the union has had a lot of support from the neighbourhood, particularly those living in the building. “There’s been many people out of that building, especially when it was hot out, bringing cool drinks for our people, offering words of support,” he said. “There’s also been people yelling support from the balconies, and yelling at people

crossing the picket lines.” According to Black, negotiations have stalled since meetings between the company and union took place in August. BCAA says there is nothing it can do about the noise and advises those affected to contact the city and authorities about the issue. “We are aware of noise and disruption complaints from local residents and have every sympathy. Unfortunately, our hands are tied as this is union activity and beyond our control,” Brenda Lowden, BCAA senior vicepresident and chief people officer, said in a statement emailed to the NOW. “The city and law enforcement respond to and investi-

gate noise and disruptive activity on city property and in residential areas.We continue to encourage the residents to call the City of Burnaby and proper authorities regarding the noise or disruptive activities caused by the unionized employees.” The dispatchers’ contract expired last September.The union issued strike notice on May 29, and shortly after that, tensions between the two parties grew.The company locked out approximately 70 employees on June 8. The primary issue is compensation. TO COMMENT ON THIS, GO TO

Opinion now OUR VIEW

Put a real value on water – charge for it It’s raining. And that’s a good thing. That and a drop in water usage has taken us down from Stage 3 watering restrictions to Stage 2. Unfortunately, as soon as many folks saw a rain drop hit their windshield they were already turning on the lawn sprinklers full blast. Have we not learned anything from our rather serious drought this summer? What does it take for the lesson to soak in, so to

speak? For some reason we continue to think that clean, fresh water is in endless supply.Who do we think we are, Nestle Incorporated? The unfortunate fact is that clean, fresh water is not in infinite supply. Start with a drought, throw in a couple of massive forest fires and then flush our sewage into our oceans, and, well, you get the picture. We’ve taken our water supply for granted for as long as we can re-

member. And we’re long overdue for a reality check. Metro Vancouver has pledged to review the entire water conservation plan, and we look forward to seeing what results. Metro utilities committee chair and City of North Vancouver Mayor Darrell Mussatto has said all options are on the table, including water meters. Municipalities that have them have been repeatedly shown to be more judicious with

their water. We’d also like to get a better handle on industrial and business water usage.There’s some question about whether we moved to Stage 3 soon enough, and we heard plenty of debates on whether the restrictions were completely fair or rational. For example: do golf courses really need to be watered? We may be jumping the gun here, but we’re thinking it’s time for water meters on

all households and all businesses. There’s nothing like a bill that drives the stark reality of the value of water home. It would be nice to think that people understand the value of water, but this past summer has shown us that many of us just can’t be trusted on an “honour” water usage system. People were trying to water their lawns in the dead of night to avoid detection (surprise, the green grass

was a dead giveaway).They were lined up at commercial car washes thinking that it was OK. Really? Can’t you survive with a dirty car? Yes, it will be costly putting in water meters. And, yes, people will still find a way to cheat. But it really is the only way that people will truly “value” our water. COMMENT ON THIS AT

MY VIEW JORDAN BATEMAN

This carrot needs a stick Terry Lake’s gut seems to be telling him one thing, yet the B.C. health minister is doing the opposite. Unfortunately, he’s wasting taxpayer money betting against his own common sense. The B.C. government announced recently that it will spend $2.5 million to buy Air Miles and other loyalty program points to distribute to B.C. residents who track “healthy” things they do through a private company’s iPhone app, Carrot Rewards.The federal government, in an election year spending spree, is kicking in another $5 million. “I have some degree of skepticism,” Lake told The Vancouver Sun when asked about the program. “But I think it’s worth a try.” You’re not the only skeptic, minister. Despite media reports that the program will get people to exercise, Lake announced only three ways to get the loyalty points: taking two online questionnaires and using some obscure B.C. government “shopping sense tool” designed to teach us rubes “how to make quick, healthy and affordable choices at the grocery store.” Fear not, Lake and the company promise more Air Miles are coming for more “healthy” things – all on the taxpayer’s dime. At this point, the government and Social Change Rewards Inc. seem to only care about collecting your data.Through the app, they will soon have their hands on all sorts of new infor-

mation about you, including how you eat, where you buy food, what physical ailments you have, and where and when you exercise.Yet there is no privacy statement or security plan available for public discussion. The term “nanny state” gets thrown around a lot, especially online, but this program is a textbook example of it: an overprotective government unduly interfering with personal choice. But even if you are philosophically fine with the idea of government parenting you, why spend $7.5 million on a program that will likely yield no long-term results or benefits – except an infusion of taxpayer cash to bank accounts of the private partner and already-wealthy loyalty programs? Lake offers no comparison to other uses for the money.What long-term health benefits would occur if government spent $7.5 million on school playgrounds? Or spent $7.5 million cutting wait-lists for surgery? Or made sure people had timely access to family physicians? Or improved rural or aboriginal drinking water quality to reduce the dozens of boil water advisories in effect across B.C. right now? Or any of a hundred other ideas. The provincial government should take a stick and whack Carrot Rewards. Jordan Bateman is the B.C. director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation.

So, about that sewage ... A 135-suite highrise flushed raw sewage into Deer Lake for about a year before a plumbing mistake was discovered and corrected by the city. Plumbing contractors had mistakenly hooked up the La Mirage highrise’s sewage pipe to a storm sewer outlet rather than a nearby sanitary sewer pipe.The faulty connection had been approved by municipal inspectors. Burnaby’s chief health inspector said the sewage had done only minimal damage.

Lighting changes not good for residents

Western Guy “I’m pretty sure Harper is not a CBC fan”! Wonder why? Why do Libs and NDP just love the CBC? Could it be because the CBC is biased?

Dear Editor Re: Burnaby sets sights on model street designs, Burnaby NOW, Sept. 16. City council is not merely experimenting with the lighting of developing areas; in fact, it just signed a contract to install LEDs in all city-owned streetlights. Research published in the Journal of Environmental Management, however, says that the wavelength of LED lighting suppresses melatonin production in the pineal gland five times more than that of traditional, orange-yellow lighting. The hormone melatonin, of course, regulates sleep, puberty, and is a powerful anti-oxidant with disease-fighting properties. Furthermore, a study published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology found that LEDs contain dozens of dangerous materials, including lead and arsenic. A bunch of bureaucrats who nearly nobody has ever heard of have decided on behalf of us all that it will be “attractive and interesting” to, among other things, introduce these harsh, glaring, white lights into our environment. How very democratic. Thanks, government! Elias Ishak, Burnaby

Manchild Harper should have asked his rabid followers to go out there and cheer about how seniors now have to work another two years to pay for their corprate tax giveaways. They can then cheer about how those corporations are just pocketing their windfall and not investing in Canada. Cheer on about, despite the free gift to the wealthiest, Canada has living under its second recession under conservatives watch and real income for average people is diminishing. Cheer about how brilliant it was to recklessly put all economic eggs into the oil extraction sector while ignoring the rest of the economy like manufacturing, which now has to become the engine of growth. Lets cheer about the cheating on elections and the steady erosion of our democratic principles. Lets cheer about conservative senators entitled fraud. Lets cheer about how Canada has lost its golden reputation around the world.

I_reckon Please spare us the actual text of the speech. Harper’s speeches are hyper-partisan and extremely condescending in their tone. Not to mention they don’t contain a word of truth. This guy has to be the smartest one in the room. Hence all the dumkoffs around him.

Western Guy Hilarious! “This piece is neither for or against Harper”. Why does the media lie? sho6 Yeah she clearly um has some preconceived notions and has never been to other political events. Because she thinks someone shouldn’t check her bags or check her name for accreditation or that is somehow unusual in any way.

Libraries providing staff with safety training Cornelia Naylor

cnaylor@burnabynow.com

Well before a recent survey revealed library workers around the province feel ill-equipped to deal with the biohazards and mentally ill people they encounter at work, Burnaby Public Li-

brary was already working on solutions, according to head librarian Edel TonerRogala. The online CUPE survey, completed by 500 of the union’s 4,500 B.C. library workers in May and June, found only about a third felt they had adequate train-

ing to deal with biohazards, like urine, feces and needles, they encounter at work. Library workers also reported shouldering a greater surveillance role to keep libraries safe while working with more and more people who need serious social and emotional support.

Bob Prittie Metrotown Library page supervisor Sarah Bjorknas said the biggest need was for workers to get more training on how to deal with marginalized people, especially those who might become aggressive. But Burnaby Public Library had been preparing to

offer such training even before the CUPE report, Bjorknas said. “I think it was an increase in incidents of people feeling like they weren’t sure what was the best course of action when they had to deal with someone whose behaviour was a problem,” she

said. “Nothing happens immediately, of course, and so it’s been quite a while in the making, but, yes, the response was, ‘Ok, what we’ve got isn’t good enough.We need to do something else.’” Starting Oct. 5, Burnaby Continued on page 9

Newsnow ‘We want everybody to feel comfortable here’ Continued from page 8 Public Library will host five one-day workshops to train frontline staff to keep themselves and those around them safe while dealing with problem situations, like drunk clients and aggressive patrons flipping out about late fines. Edel-Toner said the workshops, which will be provided byVancouver-based ARETE Safety and Protection Inc., are part of the library’s response to an incident at the Tommy Douglas branch last year, when a worker was threatened. The worker defused the situation and no one was hurt, but some people who witnessed the incident raised concerns, Edel-Toner said. “As part of the corrective actions, we identified training for all frontline staff and the need to improve our documentation around procedures, so we took that on,” she said. Edel-Toner, who has

not seen the results of the CUPE survey, due for release in December, said dealing with marginalized populations is nothing new to libraries, especially public libraries. A library worker for more than 30 years, she said libraries have always struggled to balance the expectations of all the different people who use them.

Social inclusion is so important. “Social inclusion is so important and a space for everybody and that everybody’s welcome – these are important foundational tenets of what I believe public libraries stand for,” she said. “Certainly it’s something that Burnaby Public Library takes to heart.We really do

believe that we are available to all.” While there’s always room for improvement, she said, the head librarian is worried the CUPE survey will give the public a skewed impression of public libraries. “I’m concerned about the people in the community who are now worried that if they come to the library, all they’re going to find is poop, crazy people and needles,” she said. “What we’re attempting to do here, and I think more than attempting, what we are doing here, is we’re managing these situations.We’re working at making sure that staff have the training and the tools that they need, because we do want to be open and available to all people.We want everybody to feel comfortable here.” COMMENT ON THIS STORY

City now Seismic upgrades on the way Continued from page 3 common spaces as we go into the new curriculum, I think that will allow us to be able to enact that new curriculum in a different way that’s challenging in our current building.” The $3.8-million Montecito project, meanwhile, will see the addition of four classrooms, increasing the school’s student capacity from 215 to 315.

The extra space will allow the school to get rid of three temporary portables Montecito students have been using since 1997, according to principal Deb Taylor. “We’re really excited about the addition of the four rooms,” she said. “The portables don’t all have running water.They don’t have washrooms, so it’s a bit of an inconvenience in the classrooms for the teachers.

It’s more difficult for the teachers and the kids to be part of the school.” Seismic funding for Montecito was first announced in April 2013. The province announced funding for Burnaby North Secondary and Stride Avenue Elementary at the same time, but no firm timelines have been announced for those projects.

The centre’s Independents series kicks off Oct. 23 and 24, with Chase Padgett’s 6 Guitars, blending music and comedy in Padgett’s exploration of six different characters. Working Spark Theatre continues the series Nov. 4 to 8 with I Am the Bastard Daughter of Engelbert Humperdinck. Arts Club on Tour is also returning to the Shad-

Choral fans, here’s one you won’t want to miss. (And I swear I’m totally not just saying this because I’m part of this choir.) In any case, the Amabilis Singers, under the direction of Burnaby’s Ramona Luengen, made a journey onto the international stage this past summer with a tour of Italy – singing in a number of amazing destinations that included the Pantheon in Rome. The touring choir has returned home safely and is polishing up some of its favourite tour repertoire for a homecoming concert, set for Saturday, Sept. 26 at 8 p.m. at NewWestminster Christian Reformed Church, 8255 13th Ave. in Burnaby. Tickets are $20, or free for children under 11.You can buy at the door, or call 604-503-2074 to reserve. (For the record, I won’t be singing in this concert – I wasn’t part of the tour.

But I will be in the audience cheering on my compatriots! Join me, won’t you?) CASTING CALL Do you have a young performer in your home? St.Timothy’s Church in Burnaby is holding a casting call for a musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol on Saturday, Sept. 26 from 1 to 5 p.m. A press release notes that the production is being mounted by the Anglican Diocese of NewWestminster Arts Movement, and proceeds are going to the local ministry at St.Timothy’s and affordable housing initiatives. “This contemporary and musical adaptation of one of the great works celebrating the Christmas spirit aims to raise awareness of housing needs in our community,” said co-producer Heather Robertson in the release. Rehearsals will be held Monday and Tuesday evenings for performances running Thursday, Dec. 10 to Saturday, Dec. 12. Young people aged 10

to 16 who like to act, sing, dance or play an instrument are invited to audition. Email Heather at heather isobelrobertson@gmail. com.

7 Year 7 Month 2 Week Old, Neutered Male, Domestic Short Hair, Mixed Breed Leo #120332 came to the shelter as a stray and quickly adopted, sadly after seven years he has been returned. He is a shy fellow initially and would love to find a home quickly! Leo is best suited to an adult only home and will require indoor/outdoor access that he is accustomed to. He is very energetic and playful. He loves to be petted and rolls on his back expecting tummy rubs. His favourite things to do are use his scratching post, hang out in the empty bath tub, and watch the world go by through the windows! Leo also loves to be groomed.

10 Year 5 Month 2 Week Old, Neutered Male, Poodle Miniature, Mixed Breed Goody is a sweet little man that would love a human to spend the rest of his days with. He is an anxious little fella and is best suited to a guardian who is retired, works from home etc. Goody is active, cuddly and loves to be with his people. His previous guardian says he did not interact with other dogs and doesn’t engage with them, he is also not a fan of the feline variety. Goody is best as the only pet in the household. This senior boy deserves to be spoiled and doted on! He loves long walks and knows some basic obedience. Come meet Goody!

4 Month 2 Week Old, Male, Mouse, Mixed Breed Rickster was brought to us after his previous guardian became overwhelmed with mice not knowing the pair of mice he was given were a male-female couple. Since being with us we have found that Rickster loves his aquarium with plenty of materials to burrow in. He loves to explore, dig & climb and keeps active. He is very social and loves to interact with his handlers. Of course, if Rickster doesn’t do it for you, he reminds you that there always other small animals in the branch looking for a home.

Similar to people, young pets may also be affected by arthritis. Irrespective of age, the quality of life of an arthritic pet can be immensely improved through early diagnosis and treatment. Pets with a history of injuries or previous surgery are more likely to develop signs of arthritis

earlier in life. While osteoarthritis is not curable, it is generally manageable with anti-inflammatory medications, appropriate exercise (swimming is a better choice of activity than running) appropriate bedding for the pet, and glucosamine and other nutritional supplementation. Multimodal therapy is often desirable as the pet ages, as one single intervention will likely not work in the long haul.

September is marked as Arthritis Awareness Month in our country. It is important to recognize that people, dogs and cats suffer daily from this chronic painful life altering condition. We all know of a family member, colleague or friend that suffers from arthritis. Similarly, we all likely know of a pet that also suffers from arthritis. We may just not know the symptoms to watch for! Symptoms in dogs include stiffness of the gait, reluctance to jump on couches or run up and down stairs. Tiredness during walks, panting, pacing and shaking are other symptoms. Cats may show any of these symptoms as well, but also can demonstrate more subtle signs such as inappropriate defecation, over-grooming, matted hair coat, irritability and vomiting to name a few. If your pet has been showing any of these symptoms, it is likely time to help their comfort levels by seeking your veterinarian’s advice.

1 Year 3 Week Old, Female, Rex, Mixed Breed She is an energetic girl with a laid back personality but can be full of beans when she wants to be. She is shy at first but when you spend some one on one time with her, she’ll have you wrapped around her little paw. Betty would do well in an environment where she has someone to keep him company but does not mind the quiet side of things. She loves to lounge around so an area big enough for her to be comfortable would be ideal. Once she is comfortable with you she will ask for some soft pats, sweet talk and most likely a sweet treat.

today’sdrive 20 16 Mazda CX-3

Your journey starts here.

A New Stylish Crossover BY DAVID CHAO

With the car industry’s habit of making every new generation of cars bigger and bigger, a void was created in the sub-compact crossover segment. Mazda’s answer to fill that void is its all-new CX-3. Smaller than its best-selling model, the CX-5, the CX-3 is still a true Mazda sporting the brand’s contemporary signature features. Mazda positions itself as a sportier “trendier” brand and the CX-3, with its full suite of SKYACTIV technologies and KODO-Soul of Motion design, achieves that objective. The CX-3 competes with other new entries such as the Honda HR-V, Chevrolet Trax and Jeep Renegade. This segment is growing very quickly but Mazda is well positioned to capture a significant share, thanks to its great design.

Design

The CX-3 slots in as the entry-level model in Mazda’s SUV range; to keep cost’s down, it shares its platform with its Mazda3 sibling. However, with its raised ride height and bulging wheel arches, the CX-3 is a proper crossover. On closer inspection of its stats though, the CX-3 is quite a bit lighter than its key competitors. The CX-3 borrows more of its styling from the larger CX-5, with its long hood, short overhangs, large wheels and slim cabin - the CX-3 has proportions that give the impression it’s in motion even when it’s not. A few unique design highlights include a wraparound rear window that aids rear visibility, optional 18-inch wheels, and available LED headlights with signature lighting. To further add to the CX-3’s sporty overall look, it has standard dual exhaust, which also mimics the CX-5.

Inside, Mazda made great use of the limited space. The interior details feel more expensive than they are thanks to the quality of the fit and finish. The overall design is simple and minimalistic.

dimensions, Mazda wanted to ensure adults could ride comfortably in the rear seats. Using a theatrestyle setup, rear seat passengers sit higher and more inward. Legroom is adequate and headroom is not an issue.

The CX-3 is available in three trim levels. The base model, the GX, comes with a nice amount of standard features, while the GS and GT add more luxury and sporty details.

While having the rear passengers closer together may aid conversation with those in the front, shoulder room could be a problem and there is no centre folding armrest.

Performance

Like the CX-5, the CX-3 uses a SKYACTIV-G 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine. However, unlike the CX5, there is no optional engine for the CX-3 and power is lower, rated at 146 hp and 146 lb-ft of torque. The reason for the decreased power is that the CX-3 doesn’t have the space to accommodate the exhaust manifold equipped to the CX-5. Therefore, a smaller one had to be used. The CX-3 is available in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive. Regardless of the drivetrain, the only transmission available is a 6-speed automatic. To increase the feeling of control, there is a manual shift mode and Drive Selection switch. Thanks to its light weight, the CX-3 feels peppy and boasts good acceleration off the line. However, on the highway it never feels fast and when attempting passing maneuvers, the lack of pure power is noticeable. While it will never overtake a sports car with its pace, the CX-3 handles very well and is a joy to drive. Again, its light weight is a factor, as is its solid chassis. In the corners, the CX-3 is responsive, has no body roll, and the steering is linear. Mazda was able to add a decent amount of sound deadening material; however it is not as refined as a larger crossover. Engine and road noise is noticeable inside the cabin, but it is bearable, especially considering the CX-3’s price range.

Environment

The cabin of the CX-3 will feel familiar to owners of modern Mazda’s. The dash is dominated by a standard 7-inch colour touchscreen display. Front seat space is among the best in this segment and headroom is more than ample. The seats have a European feel and hold you securely in place. Despite its small exterior

The rear cargo area has a moveable floor to provide a flat loading surface for maximum capacity. Even at max capacity, the CX-3 has only 16 cubic feet behind the rear seats – even less in the GT model with its additional subwoofer. With the rear seats folded, capacity goes up to 54 cubic feet. What makes the CX-3 stand out from its rivals is its available features. Few others in this price range offer blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, and forward crash detection, although that’s changing rapidly. Radio and navigation duties are handled by the touchscreen and central knob. This system is also in the Mazda3 and Mazda6, but it may take some time to get used to for newcomers because it’s a bit awkward to use. The CX-3 also boasts a head up display - It projects important information onto a small piece of glass that sits on the dash, above the gauge cluster. It is useful, but it would be nicer if it projected onto the windshield to help keep the driver’s eyes on the road.

Features

Prices start at $20,695 for the GX, $24,195 for the GS, and $28,995 for the GT. Standard equipment includes keyless entry, push-button start, rearview camera, air conditioning, and steering wheel mounted cruise control. Additional features, available as options or on higher trims, include leather upholstery, heated front seats, automatic climate control, power moonroof, voiceactivated navigation, automatic headlights, and rainsensing wipers. Fuel efficiency numbers (L/100km) for FWD models are 8.2 city and 6.7 highway. AWD models return 8.8 city and 7.3 highway.

Thumbs Up

The CX-3 has sharp styling and is fun to drive. The quality of the interior makes it feel more upscale.

Thumbs Down

While the base engine is good it would be nice to have another option. Also, the noise that enters the cabin could become tiresome on long trips.

The Bottom Line

The Mazda CX-3 is ideal for small families looking for a usable, stylish and fun to drive car.

Steelers open season with back-to-back wins Cayley Dobie

cdobie@burnabynow.com

The Burnaby-based Grandview Steelers started their season on a high last week. The Junior B team opened their season on the road against Richmond rivals the Sockeyes on Sept. 10. Richmond hit the ice strong, and by the end of the second period were leading 2-0. But then the Steelers’ Adam Rota scored in the opening minute of the third period breaking the shutout. Richmond retaliated quickly, scoring a third goal shortly after Rota.Two more goals by the Steelers would bring the score to an even three goals apiece, and force the game into overtime. But it wasn’t until the second overtime that Grandview secured its 4-3 win with a goal by Timothy Chow in the last two minutes of the extra period. On Sunday, the Steelers were back on home ice for the season’s home opener against the Port Moody Panthers.

This game was altogether different than the previous matchup against Richmond. This time the Steelers dominated the action, scoring timely goals to put them ahead early on, head coach Aldo Bruno told the NOW. Braeden Gurney opened the scoring midway through the first period, followed by two goals in the second period from rookie Jeffrey Wong, scoring his first junior career goal, and Rota, with his second goal this season. Goaltender Cole MacInnes had a stellar game as well, stopping all 20 shots on net and helping hold on to the Steelers’ 3-0 lead over the Panthers through to the end of the game. “Any time a goaltender gets shutout, you know he’s done something right, but I think it was really an overall team game,” Bruno said. Everyone doing their part to shut down Port Moody, he added. “It’s important because you can’t always rely on one or two guys,” Bruno said. “You’ve got to have a balanced offence and it’s got to come from everybody.” The Steelers are back on

Douglas set to improve on last season’s success Cayley Dobie

cdobie@burnabynow.com

Douglas College’s women’s soccer head coach Chris Laxton is hoping to capitalize on the stellar season the team had on the pitch last year. The Royal women, including third-year Burnaby North graduate Courtney Sine, won all three of

their first games this season starting with a 3-2 win over Langara College on Sept. 9 followed by a 3-0 shutout against Kwantlen Polytechnic University on Saturday and a 2-1 win over Quest University at home on Sunday. Laxton, who took over the position of head coach in April 2014, led the team to a bronze medal in the

PacWest provincials in a 4-3 shootout win over Kwantlen Polytechnic University last season. He’d like to keep the momentum going – especially now that the women know what they are capable of. “We’re getting the results, but there’s still lots to improve on. I think we’re set up with a core group that have been through this last

year.We had a good start to last year and did see a lot of adversity but then bounced back,” Laxton said. This year, Laxton hopes his team will stay consistent throughout the season.With three wins already under their belts, it’s easy to lose focus, and Laxton wants to make sure the women stay on course all the way through to the end of the

season setting them up for a strong showing at provincials. “After this weekend we’ll get every team two more times after and then we can start creating a bit more game-specific, team-specific plans as we build up for what will be a fourth meet-

ing with some of them, hopefully, in the provincial semis and then hopefully in the provincial final,” he said. The Royals’ women are back on the field Saturday, Sept. 19 against Vancouver Island University, and Capilano University on Sunday.
