Burnaby comes out for National Indigenous Peoples Day Lauren Vanderdeen
Burnaby honoured National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21 at Edmonds Park and Plaza. The event featured a variety of performers, sharing
their cultures with dances, songs and storytelling. CarleenThomas of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation welcomed guests, saying it’s time to come together. “We have to find a way to work together. And with this world, this planet in
the state that it’s in now, all the little things we can do in our own communities is important,” she said. SenaqwilaWyss, the director and programmer of the event’s ceremonies, said she focused on including local Nations and multi-
generational dance groups and storytellers. “It’s about sharing our culture, but also to make non-Indigenous feel welcome; that it’s to learn about our culture through education, through hearing stories and hearing our
songs, as it’s just a huge part of who we are,” said Wyss. The Xwelmexw Shxwexwo:s SalishThunderbird song and dance group performed a paddle song. Francis James, speaking for the group, said the
young men “have been dancing since they were still in their diapers.” “They’ve been involved in our culture since then, since Day 1,” James said, noting it’s important to share that their people are thriving.

Reconciliation crosswalk design unveiled
Westridge students revealThunderbird design by Salish artist Atheana Picha from Kwantlen First Nation Lauren Vanderdeen
Students at École Westridge Elementary unveiled the design for Burnaby’s first truth and reconciliation crosswalk on Monday (June 20). After studying the 94 Calls to Action issued by theTruth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, theWestridge Grade 6/7 class decided to act on Call No. 82, which calls on communities to install a publicly accessible and highly visible monument to residential schools. Westridge students Raven Rocha and Mana Ahmadi said they wanted to create a monument that did more than scratch the surface of what reconciliation means in a community. “We wanted to take it a bit deeper and really … understand what it’s about, and then wanting people to pause and think, ‘Oh, well, this is the history, and now this is moving forward,’” said Mana, Grade 6. Raven said students learn about residential schools every year, but this year was different. “I think this is the first
We wanted something where people were able to look at it every day and really think of the meaning and the symbolism of what it was for.

year that we’ve actually dived deeper, (to) really understand the torture that Indigenous children went through during their times at residential school,” said Raven, Grade 7. “And I think that kind of put us all into a shock and made us want to do the project even more.” When the class considered the call for a publicly accessible monument, Raven suggested designing a
crosswalk. “We wanted something where people were able to look at it every day and really think of the meaning and the symbolism of what it was for,” said Mana. Atheana Picha, a Salish artist from the Kwantlen First Nation, created the black and white design of twoThunderbirds. The design will be painted at the crossing of Drummond’sWalk UrbanTrail at Union Street,
a well-used crosswalk both Raven and Mana said they’ve been using since kindergarten. The class’ teacher AudreyVenner said students surveyed the Drummond’s Walk area, pausing people on their walks to ask what reconciliation means to them to understand if the location was a good spot for the crosswalk. “We wanted to reach further than the parents and the kids, because,
hopefully, the parents and the kids are already on this journey,”Venner told the NOW. “It’s reaching out to different levels of generations.” Students frequently visit the trail, near a wooded area which the community refers to as “the forest,” on Terry Fox runs, outdoor learning times and nature walks. The class’ crosswalk initiative received a $750
grant from the National Centre forTruth and Reconciliation and $20,000 from the City of Burnaby. Squamish Nation Elder Chiaxs’tn (Wes Nahanee) opened the unveiling presentation, sharing a song. Burnaby North Secondary School’s Indigenous youth drum group sang a good intentions song. School board chair Jen Mezei said truth is an important part of the path to reconciliation. “Seeing a generation of students who, their truth is what they know, and they’re not having to unlearn anything is really powerful,” Mezei said.
Students drum for National Indigenous Peoples Day Cornelia Naylor
A group of Burnaby students joined counterparts around North and South America in a celebration of Indigenous drumming for Indigenous Peoples Day June 21 — but they weren’t just handed a drum and told to go at it. The École Alpha Sec-
ondary School students were filmed earlier this month singing and drumming two Skwxwú7mesh Nation songs and are now featured in a compilation of videos for the 2022 Drum Across North and South America project, co-ordinated by theVancouver School Board. But drumming for the camera was just the cul-
mination of what was a months-long journey for the students at Alpha, according to Rob Smyth, the Burnaby school district’s district principal of Indigenous education. “They didn’t touch a drum for two months,” he said. “You have to earn the drum; that’s part of the teaching.” About 10 Indigenous
students and a non-Indigenous student started meeting with Skwxwú7mesh Nation elder Ketximtn Alroy Baker and Ianna Lewis, a student and dancer who works with Baker, in November. “At first they were a bit surprised that they weren’t touching the drum,” Smyth said. “But you saw that respect grow and that
understanding grow.” Smyth credits Baker and Indigenous teachings that date back thousands of years, but he said the students also deserve recognition for what they learned in their weekly meetings. “They’re in the library in a very exposed place where everyone can see, and it’s during lunchtime,” Smyth said. “I raise my
hands to them because it takes courage.There might be fear of being judged or just looking different by their non-Indigenous peers.” By February, they had earned the right to make the drums. And by June 2 they were ready to sing, dance and drum for Drum Across North and South America.

Opinion now MY VIEW KEITH BALDREY
Teﬂon BC NDP keeps lead in poll
The Teflon-like coating the BC NDP government has been adorned with for quite some time shows little sign of fading, if a recent poll by the Angus Reid Institute is any indication. Despite a string of controversies (not the least of which is the Royal BC Museum replacement project; more on that down below) the poll released last week shows the NDP government continues to sail along atop public opinion. While the poll found solid (69 per cent) opposition to the museum scheme (just four per cent strongly support it) it also showed the NDP is the current choice of 42 per cent of the voters compared to just 31 per cent for the BC Liberals. More tellingly, many people are willing to stick with the NDP even though the government is failing those same people on the issues they rank highest in importance: cost of living, health care and housing affordability. The government gets failing grades on all three issues (81 per cent on cost of living, 89 per cent on housing and 76 per cent on health care) yet these bleak numbers do not translate into more support for the BC Liberals. This situation shows the public is still willing to cut the NDP government a lot of slack despite its performance in key areas. It also shows just how much more work the BC Liberals have cut out for them as they struggle to regain credibility with the voting public. New party leader Kevin Falcon’s job rating numbers are not good: just 23 per cent approve of his performance, while 44 per cent disapprove. A fairly high number (32 per cent) have not really heard of him, which gives him some potential room to boost
his approval numbers as we draw ever closer to the next election. But one other number in that poll must give the BC Liberals pause for concern.That would be the 10 per cent showing for the BC Conservative Party, and it is safe to say many people in that camp are disaffected or would-be BC Liberal voters. Perhaps this situation explains Falcon’s boltfrom-the-blue announcement last week calling for not only the end of vaccine mandates for health care workers but also the reinstatement of unvaccinated health care employees back into their jobs. This represents the first time the BC Liberals have opposed a public health order since the pandemic began. Given that opposition to vaccine mandates runs highest in conservative segments of society, it is hard not to view this as nothing more an attempt to woo more conservatives into the party fold. Allowing about 2,000 unvaccinated people to work in hospitals and longterm care homes seems rather risky. Absences among health care workers are already running at about 10 per cent every week, about double pre-pandemic levels, and it is almost entirely because people keep contracting the COVID-19 virus. The Angus Reid poll showed just six per cent of the population are concerned about the COVID-19 response from the government and public health, the lowest-ranked issue of all. The BC Liberals want to start putting some tents in the BC NDP’s Teflon coating, but I am not sure opposing public health orders that the vast majority of the population seems to back is the right way to go about that. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.
Topic: B.C. offers incentives for new medical grads “Our doctors need to be paid more so they can afford to run their practices. My GP whom I adore has to close her practice as she can’t afford to continue. I would be happy to pay a monthly fee again in order to keep these doctors practising.”
“This is at least an attempt to bring in new family doctors, but why don’t they just limit the number of doctors sharing walk-in clinics or limit the years they can stay in a clinic environment? Then make it mandatory that doctors move into private practice. Pay them more money.”

Drugs sold from ice cream truck A 24-year-old man faced time in the cooler after being charged for selling drugs out of the back of his ice cream truck near a local high school in April. Police got a tip marijuana and cocaine were being sold out of a Mr. Cool truck near Cariboo Hill Secondary School. An undercover officer then allegedly bought marijuana from the operator of the truck on school grounds.The accused was also alleged to have told the officer that he had access to cocaine. A school district spokesperson said Cariboo Hill wasn’t “that kind” of school.

Willingdon plan opens doors to better transit Editor: Re: Letter: Willingdon Lands megaproject will worsen congestion How unfortunate that this letter to the editor fails to acknowledge the City of Burnaby’s brand-new and progressive Citywide Transportation Plan that provides abundant solutions to the rearward-looking thinking evident herein by those opposed to pretty much everything that would make Burnaby better. As a semi-retired transportation planner and continuing longtime advocate for advanced mobility solutions, as early as 2015, as part of the Brentwood Town Centre plan, did I repeatedly urge council to pursue a north-south rapid-transit solution. The Willingdon master plan contains an explicit commitment to positively respond in site design with respect to rapid transit improvements when they arrive. This is excellent news, and council should be emboldened to recognize that this particular site is a critical element of justifying the sizable investments required to make rapid transit in this corridor work. In fact, for council to approve this master plan, giving due consideration to the multiple views to achieve a balanced outcome, in my estimation will be pivotal in the dialogue with both the
province and federal government for funding such a sustainable mobility investment. And, of course, we must respect our collective reconciliation commitments that also mean putting dollars behind our statements, for which I can think of no better means, transportation-wise, than to serve the Willingdon Lands with high-quality, low-polluting rapid transit. What is also forgotten is this master plan will not be implemented overnight, and that over the next few decades the opportunity exists for future Willingdon rapid transit to influence the ultimate site design that makes the current plan just a work-in-progress; thus let’s not pretend that congestion will worsen when in fact rapid transit is very much in the cards for delivery aligned with what may happen on the west side of Willingdon. But if we take this NIMBY perspective “megaproject will worsen congestion” at face value then where in Burnaby will anything be done? Nowhere is the answer, as the circumstances across the city require us to find partners to implement better mobility solutions, or stop all development everywhere. In short, the Willingdon Lands master plan is a testament to responsible and sustainable development planning, and I can’t wait for the day that the new residents and businesses in this area start their contribution to making Burnaby better.

Citynow Vancouver police say the bear was getting dangerously close to people and pets Jess Balzer
A black bear was shot and killed in Burnaby on June 19 after getting “dangerously close” to the public. In a statement to the NOW,Vancouver Police Department (VPD) spokesperson Sgt. Steve Addison said a black bear ventured into a busy residential area near the Burnaby-Vancouver border around 11 a.m. on Sunday, June 19. Police started monitoring the bear with hopes it would move to a safer place. But Addison explained officers were forced to shoot the bear after it crossed a short distance into Burnaby.
The bear was going “in and out of yards,” was getting too close to people and pets and was “walking in traffic,” he added. According to social media, the bear was believed to have been shot near the intersection of Hastings Street and Boundary Road. One person claims the bear was tracked for 15 blocks. When the bear was first spotted,VPD notified the B.C. Conservation Officer Service (BCCOS) as well as animal control for assistance. Animal control staff were deployed, but they didn’t arrive before police were forced to kill the bear, Addison said. According to WildSafeBC’s wildlife alert report-
munity; Ð washing the blossoms off in the spring so the fruit doesn’t set; or Ð replacing the tree with a non-fruit bearing variety.
Bear killed: The Vancouver Police Department shot and killed a bear in Burnaby after it posed a danger to the public.
ing program, there have been 103 reported black bear sightings in Burnaby since Jan. 1. The provincial organization encourages residents to consider the following tips around bears: • Keep your garbage in or secured until the day of collection. Garbage is the
number 1 attractant cited in reports to the provincial hotline. Ð Manage your fruit trees. Ð Don’t let windfalls accumulate, and pick fruit as it ripens. If you don’t want the fruit, consider: Ð accessing a fruit gleaning group in your com-
OTHER SAFETY TIPS Ð Don’t put out bird feeders when bears are active. (A kilogram of bird seed has approximately 8,000 calories and is a great reward for a hungry bear.) Ð Keep your compost working properly with lots of brown materials and a regular schedule of turning. Ð If you have livestock or backyard chickens, use a properly installed and maintained electric fence to keep bears and livestock apart. — with files from Kyle Balzer,Tri-City News

Community now Motorbike repair shop/party hub revs up for exit
True Grit Moto owner turned old barn into a hybrid business — but it won’t be around Burnaby for long On aWednesday night in early June, about a dozen people gathered by 7:30 p.m. to show up for an electronic music night with up-and-coming local DJs. It was hard to believe, with the deep house beats and laser light show, that this was happening in the middle of suburban Burnaby.
Burnaby is about to lose the coolest little club it never knew it had. In a barn, in an industrial park, three blocks from Brentwood SkyTrain station is a motorcycle repair shop that — for a short spell — doubled as a concert-slash-party space. WELCOME TO TRUE GRIT MOTO Barn 5A is home to True Grit Moto, a motorcycle repair business owned by Richelle Trelenberg. It’s a motorcyclist’s haven.The smell of grease and oil wafts around like a perfume.Trelenberg calls it “intoxicating.” The space feels like the cozy home of an eclectic collector. In one corner of the barn,Trelenberg has hosted a vintage flea market. In another, a barber’s chair sits among 10 or so motorbikes standing in rows of storage. The other half of the barn is a workshop dedicated to fixing bikes. Above stands a high wooden loftTrelenberg built with one other person in eight days. At the top of the loft is a bar and lounge area, capped at the end with a small performance stage and sound set-up.

It’s like a 1970s basement, filled with sienna-orange stuffed couches and beige carpets. Done with her day’s bike repairs,Trelenberg announces triumphantly: “And that’s changing brakes.” She said the space started out as a motorcycle shop with workshops but evolved to include the vintage shop, music shows and events. “It’s like an open community space where everybody’s welcome. It’s not just the man’s shop anymore.”Trelenberg said. Trelenberg described
the space as the person in high school that befriends the kid no one wants to hang out with. “One person opens up that moment, and they just kind of like, ‘Come in and have a chat.’This space is that person.” This isTrue Grit Moto by day. In the evening, the space becomes the No. 5 Barn. THE NO. 5 BARN: NOWHERE LIKE IT The name is partially inspired by the No. 5 Orange strip club inVancouver. In the evening,Trelenberg’s event manager
It’s like an open community space where everybody’s welcome.
LeesaWeighill turns the space into a raver’s delight on one day, or a country cowgirl’s dream the next. Trelenberg saidWeighill came to her with a six-page business plan on how to do small events in the barn.

By May, the events began: open mics, comedy shows, electronic allwomen DJ nights and silent discos. “She just started filing the people in here, like singer-songwriters, magicians, comedians, dancers, a flame-thrower person,” Trelenberg said. Weighill (also a musician) described the barn as rustic grunge with motorcycle vintage vibes.The bikes give the space a new take on the warehouse party space. “I think this is the only place in Burnaby that’s like this,”Weighill said.
TRUE GRIT’S FUTURE Trelenberg has been in the space since July 2021 — but she’s closing the barn as a repair shop on July 1. Her business licence allows her to be a mobile mechanic, but not to work on bikes in one place. The No. 5 Barn will see some Pride events in July, but they’ll be smaller in scale.Trelenberg is out for good on July 31. The vintage shop is already gone, and she’s slowly clearing the loft. AsTrelenberg bikes out of the industrial park on her 1991 Honda Gold Wing (she named it “Goldie Honkers”), she’s preparing to take her repair skills fully mobile. She bought an old postal van and turned it into a mechanic shop. She wants to host events and workshops all over the Lower Mainland, from Chilliwack to Pemberton and everywhere in between.

With restrictions around the COVID-19 pandemic easing off, the Heights Merchants Association and the Hats Off Day committee were able to return to a
full-fledged live festival once again for 2022. All that was missing from the June 18 event was the parade — but organizers plan to bring that back for 2023. Families still had a chance to lace up their shoes for the Family Fun Dash to kick off the morn-

W & A Farms – End of an Era To the community and our valued customers: After over 50 years of operating here in Richmond, we have decided it is time to retire and move on to the next chapter of our lives. We have sold our farm and our doors will be closing on July 15, 2022. We want to thank everyone who has visited our farm over the years for all the support you have shown us. We have created many memories on the farm raising our family and operating our business. We will cherish the friendships we have made with our customers and employees along the way. We may be retiring but Bill will continue to play an integral role in the agricultural community as a member of the many organizations he works with. We couldn’t close our doors without one last chance to say goodbye to all of our friends and customers - so make sure to come by the farm for one last strawberry season. Thank you for all the support you have shown our family over these many years. Very Sincerely, Bill, Sandra, Angela & Will Zylmans

Citynow Owner not entitled to strata fee refund, tribunal rules Townhouse owner sought two years’ worth of fees, claims strata didn’t provide service she paid for Cornelia Naylor
A Burnaby townhouse owner who argued she should get a refund on two years’ worth of strata fees
because the strata didn’t deliver the service she paid for has won a partial victory at the B.C. Civil Resolution Tribunal. Xiao Rui Hua owns a unit in a 40-year-old, 18-
lot strata on the corner of Imperial Street and Dow Avenue. She applied to the CRT for an order forcing the strata to refund two years of strata fees totalling
$4,173.12. She also said the strata should follow the Strata Property Act and stop bullying, according to a recent ruling. Hua made numerous allegations against the strata
Centre of Attraction There’s an energy that comes from living at the centre of it all; a buzz that unites the people and places that connect a community. That’s the vibe we’ve created in our central Burnaby location – a bustling, spirited synergy with our surroundings inside and out.
council, including that the strata failed to hold an annual general meeting for nearly two years, paid the president a salary for working as a strata manager, prevented Hua and another owner from voting at meetings, failed to provide services, and overpaid an owner who worked as a landscaper or groundskeeper. Hua also claimed some strata council members are not fluent in English, and no interpreter was present at the 2019 AGM. Hua and her husband moved out of their unit in 2019 and now rent it out, according to the ruling. “Ms. Hua says she and her husband moved out because of a physical attack from a council member, but she does not provide details,” the ruling states. The strata denied the claims and launched a counterclaim, alleging Hua owed the strata $3,323.35 for “embezzlement,” according to the ruling. It alleged Hua and her husband had engaged in fraudulent transactions between 2012 and 2014 when they “controlled strata council,” according to the ruling. In all, the strata claimed a total of $15,363.38 in expenses, including the $3,323.33 for the alleged embezzlement. The strata’s claim was
dismissed, however, because the CRT determined it was outside of its jurisdiction. In the end, tribunal member Micah Carmody ruled Hua wasn’t entitled to a refund. Even if she had proven all her allegations against the strata, Carmody said there was no provision in the Strata Property Act or the strata’s bylaws that allows an owner to withhold strata fees for any reason – or entitles them to a refund. But Carmody also ruled the strata had overstepped its power in two ways: first, by not allowing Hua to vote at general meetings because of an alleged debt and, second, by refusing to provide Hua’s real estate agent with a Form B information certificate needed to sell the townhouse. Carmody ruled the alleged debt was not lienable and the strata’s enforcement actions contravened the SPA. She dismissed Hua’s claim for the $4,173.12 refund and the strata’s claim for $15,363.38 in expenses, and ordered the strata to stop preventing Hua from voting at meetings and stop refusing to provide Hua or her agents with information certificates. Carmody also ordered the strata to pay half Hua’s tribunal fees.

CELEBRATING BRIGHT FUTURES FOR THE CLASSES OF 2022 Graduation is a time of reflection, a time to celebrate and a time to look forward toward the future. Thanks to the high schools in Burnaby, the Burnaby NOW celebrates this time through the words of the valedictorians from the Grad Class of 2022. What follows are excerpts from their respective speeches.
V VALEDICTORIAN: ARMAAN JABERI A
“Let’s take a trip down memory lane. We started out in grade 8 with new people, new staff, and a new school; an old building, but it was all new to us. We were eased into high school with field trips to water parks and indoor beaches. In grade 10, we were introduced to a new system that included virtual classrooms. By grade 12, we had experienced the semester system, the quarter system, and several bell schedule changes. But we were also able to, once again, participate in school activities. We had: the scavenger hunt, the grade 12 dance, Stryker, spirit days, intramurals, and, oh yeah, there were some classes. The point is, although we missed out on some crucial events for a couple of years, we made up for it in the time we had. These are memories we’ll forever cherish.”

BURNABY CENTRAL SECONDARY SCHOOL VALEDICTORIAN: SOHAIL VASAN “II would li like to start off by thanking all of the teachers and school staff who have helped guide us for the past five years. The time you have spent teaching us, proofreading our college applications, letting us rewrite tests, and most importantly allowing us to stand on your shoulders to get a better view of the future that lies ahead of us, is something we’ll always be grateful for… We have learned many new skills and grown as individuals.
One of the most important discoveries we found was that traveling with company is far more enjoyable and leads to better experiences than going in alone. We have all made incredible friendships here at Burnaby Central and it’s these friendships that will stand the test of time and provide us with the support and encouragement when we need it most in the future… I think we have the potential to change and accomplish amazing things.”

“Like the weather, our high school experiences took many different forms. From days where we felt all alone, to days where we laughed so hard that our laughter resonated down hallways and up staircases. We spent over a quarter of our current lives, of our youth, together. It was a mixture of worries and laughter, of coffee and sleep, of competition and collaboration. We spent it cramming formulas into our brains, testing each other’s memorization of words, and bombarding teachers with questions at lunch. Sorry for that. Through it all, we were hardworking. We were ambitious. We were resourceful. We were kind. We were young. We will continue to be young, at least in our hearts. No one better understands the hard work and tough decisions that went into high school than your classmates and family sitting around you. That’s what makes any grad class, but especially this one, special.”
“If you think about it, grade 8 and grade 12 are similar years… the circle is FULL – of moments and memories and connections and learning and life. And the end often reflects the beginning. In both our grade 8 and grade 12 years, we’re starting new beginnings. We’re saying goodbye to many of our dearest friends, and we’re embracing the new connections and impressions we will make. So, although today is the time to reflect, tomorrow is not. Tomorrow leave that nervous, awkward grade 8 kid in the past. Because, even though we’re all worried about our futures, we’ve done this before. And the fact that you all are sitting here with me and starting yet another new beginning tells me that we’ve not only done this before, but that we have the courage, strength and skills to do this once again. Congratulations, Graduating Class of 2022!!!!!”

VALEDICTORIAN: MOHITH BASKARAN
“We should all truly be proud of what we have accomplished... A resilient group of individuals, all unique in our own way, who contribute to the spirit of the school… Our culture is rooted from deep within, as every day we walk the hallway of flags hung upon the ceiling as reminders in support of our diversity and to acknowledge Black History Month, and equality for all students. Our South community and student body are proud of our heritage; many of you have connected with these flags as they validate each individual here. 2022 is a special graduating class, as this year marks the 100th year Centennial of Burnaby South… After 100 years, I can stand here and proudly say that our class is diverse, and everyone plays an important role in uplifting the senior class of Burnaby South… We have reached the end of a journey that has been amazing, as ahead of us are new memories, new friendships, and new relationships.”
VALEDICTORIAN: MORRIS CORR
“We all will take what we learned here at BCSD and show everyone what Deaf people can do! Sometimes we will have differences in life, but it is important to stick together and work together as one great big Deaf community. We can take what we’ve learned during our years here and make a great positive difference in the world. I would like to say a great big thank you to all the staff, students, and to all of our families for supporting all of us in the Class of 2022. Your support means a lot to all of us and is greatly appreciated. We all have been learning what Deaf people can do, and the movie CODA has helped all of us spread awareness that Deaf people can do anything that hearing people can do, except hear!”
BYRNE CREEK COMMUNITY SCHOOL VALEDICTORIAN: ANDY LIM
“Byrne Creek has undoubtedly raised future leaders in all areas… It was a fulfilling and momentous journey over these past five years… our days of youth are rather numbered. But fear not… let’s rejoice for what this dear future has to bring. We are not here today to fear the mysteries of adulthood, we are here, to understand that time is linear, and we must go on. So be ready to let go of a few luxuries we have as teenagers
as some of us head off to university and college and some already enter the real world, as many would call it… Of course, work diligently towards your longterm wishes and lifetime goals... But don’t only live for that end goal. Take breaks, set up a tent on the hill and eat your favourite home-packed foods. Just remember that every day you walk up that hill, the sunset view will look more beautiful than the last.”

“What each of us has gained is respect for who we are, and an acceptance for those around us no matter their race, sexual orientation, gender, political beliefs, or cultural background. This graduating class respects humanity. Don’t forget the friendships, bonds, and memories from this community that have supported and shaped you. Use those connections and love for your community to give back to it, in any way you
can. You may be overcome with grief, thinking about the possibility of losing friendships you’ve had since grade 8, but remember, as Vision said: “what is grief, if not love persevering.” Don’t limit your goals, all of us are meant to be amongst the stars, so make like a Cariboo Hill charger, and charge towards them. Now that we are graduating, ‘it’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life’ for us. And we’re ‘feeling good.’”
INDIGENOUS EDUCATION VALEDICTORIAN: SAMANTHA HARRIS, NLAKA’PAMUX NATION
“After the last 3 years, I feel our challenge is to find the one special thing, person, action, or thought that helps us to not only bounce back, but also move forward – and make us stronger for doing so. When you find that thing, person, action, or thought, hold on to it with all your might, as you would your paddle, because like your paddle, it will carry you through life’s white water rapids that threaten to overturn your plans; it will also serve you well when the waters are calm and peaceful and carry you on your way gently… I think Wab Kinew said it best in Go Show the World: ‘Remember, always do right. Try to be positive. If you ever do wrong, make it up, and please forgive. All paths are open to you, the brave, you take a stand. Wherever you go, these words echo through the land. We are people who matter. Yes, it’s true. Now let’s show the world what people who matter can do.’”
ÉCOLE MOSCROP SECONDARY SCHOOL VALEDICTORIAN: HANNAH QIN
“Many of our generation’s supposed liabilities have the potential to be some of our greatest strengths. As miscommunication spreads over the internet, our growing media literacy will aid us in separating reality from perceived truths… We need to look no further than any daily news feeds to see that one country may be fed one message, and another country another. Perhaps in no other time has it been easier to spread misinformation and distort reality. So, what is the truth? This will largely depend on how we decide to harness our growing skill set and the resources available to us. In a world of social media, it is our responsibility to keep seeing, to keep being critical thinkers, and to continue to be gracious as to how we handle ourselves online. This is the challenge of our time, and this is how we defy the stereotype.”

A Burnaby Cactus Club has been fined $1,000 for violating liquor control laws thanks to two women who were allowed to knock back one bottle of wine and order another before ordering any food. The pair got to the Market Crossing Cactus Club at about 7 p.m. on Nov. 19, 2021 and were served a 750 millilitre bottle of wine, according to a ruling by the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch. Over the next hour and 40 minutes, the server returned three times to ask about their food order, but the women said they would order later. “They said they were busy having a conversation,” states the ruling. They ordered and were served another bottle at about 8:40 p.m., but still didn’t order any food. “At all times, the server believed from the patrons’ statements and actions that they intended to order food,” states the ruling. “The server had never had any patrons say they were going to order food and then not order.” By 10:15 p.m., however, the women still hadn’t or-
dered food, when two Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch inspectors showed up for a routine inspection. They spotted the two patrons sitting at a table with two glasses, a 750 ml bottle of wine and no sign of food in sight. From the bill and information gleaned from the manager, the inspectors determined the women had been served two bottles of wine and no food in three hours and 19 minutes. That’s a no-no for food-primary establishments, which are required under the terms of their licences not to serve liquor without food. The inspectors said they were going to issue a contravention notice against the restaurant, but the manager argued the women’s dining experience hadn’t ended yet. Only after the inspectors left did they decide to order a plate of spicy chicken. “At that time, the second bottle of wine was still one-half full,” states the ruling. It was still a quarter full at 12:34 a.m., shortly before the women left. At a hearing into the

matter last month, the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch argued the restaurant had failed to comply with the terms and conditions of its licence, especially when it served the women the second bottle. The restaurant argued the terms and conditions don’t specify when the food must be ordered as long as it is ordered at some time during service – and it was.The restaurant also noted there was no suggestion the women were drunk or otherwise over-served. In the end, however, Dianne Flood, a delegate of the general manager of the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch, ruled the Cactus Club had contravened the terms and conditions of its licence. Flood acknowledged the terms and conditions don’t set out a specific time within which food has to accompany a bottle of wine, but they do say wine has to be consumed with food. Flood ordered Cactus Club to pay a $1,000 fine and put up a notice at the restaurant saying it has been sanctioned.

Love from your family.
Shauna Paull, longtime creative adviser of literary arts at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, is moving on to new horizons. Paull has been teaching writing classes at the Shadbolt for 23 years. She’s taken her role as a working artist and poet seriously, particularly when it comes to community development. “All of our work kind of comes to life in a circle of other writers or learners. … Building community has been kind of an essential ethos of my working life,” Paull said. She has taught and programmed a wide variety of writing classes at the Shadbolt, including memoir, poetry, an open studio for fiction writers, a longterm journal-writing class, a morning writing class and a youth class that runs the length of a school term (September to May). “My teaching has been such a gift,” she said. “There are always these surprises that happen when, finally, folks feel comfortable to express themselves.” Paull’s presence in the community is clearly felt — she’s flagged down by a

One of her students described the Shadbolt writing community as “sanctuary.” “That felt right to all of us,” Paull said. When asked if she had book or author recommendations, Paull said it’s important to read as many Indigenous authors as pos-
sible. She suggested writers Lee Maracle and Jordan Abel, as well as Matthew JamesWeigel’s Whitemud Walking. As Paull moves forward, she hopes to do more mentoring and teaching inVancouver, as well as keep time for her own practice. Her 2021 book of poetry, blue gait, is nominated for the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize, B.C.’s top po-
etry award. June 19 was Fowler’s last community read with the Shadbolt. She says the community readings are part of her responsibility as a teacher. “That’s what writers do: we read to each other — even though some people think that it’s totally dorky. It’s how the word comes to fullness, right?”

I felt like I stood out there for two matches and wasted the opportunity.” Di Stasio explained she knew she needed to cope with falling short of her goal in a healthy way. However, like many others, she said she was scared to admit she needed help. Di Stasio started therapy for her anxiety in January 2020, with support provided by Wrestling Canada. “It’s a constant process, and it’s hard to navigate, but it is possible to come out the other side of anxiety and feel better.”

years, and I am so excited to be part of the Commonwealth Games team,” Di Stasio said in a news release. “Besides the Olympics, this was the only other big event I haven’t been to and something I was hoping to be able to participate in before I finish my wrestling career.” Di Stasio has several medals to her name, including gold at the 2018 world championships, gold at the 2019 Pan-American Games and four more golds from past Pan-American Championships. “My goal for the competition is to compete hard and execute the game plan that my coaches have for me,” the 29-year-old adds.

Sports now SFU prof is ﬁrst psychologist in BC Sports Hall of Fame Jess Balzer
Renowned sports psy-
chologist David Cox has received an honour of a lifetime. Cox, who has taught in
Simon Fraser University’s (SFU) clinical psychology program for more than 35 years, became the first
sports psychologist to be named to the BC Sports Hall of Fame. He was officially in-
ducted June 9 with the 2021 class in the buildercoach category. “When I got the call last fall, I found it pretty emotional, far more than I had anticipated,” Cox said in a statement from SFU. “It’s an important honour for me, however, I think it is more important for sport science/medicine and others who work in support of athletes and teams. It’s huge for me and for my profession.” Throughout his career, Cox has worked with provincial and national sports organizations, as well as numerous elite Canadian athletes, including Olympic gold medallist and SFU alumni Carol Huynh, tennis pro Grant Connell and middle-distance runner Leah Pells. Many of his clients are also being inducted into the BC Sports Hall of Fame. To date, he still works withVancouverWhitecaps FC. Cox has also worked with theVancouver Canucks, Canada Basketball,Tennis Canada, Canada Soccer, Skate Canada, Rugby Canada, Canada Softball, the Canadian Olympic Committee, Canada Snowboard, Canadian Curling Association and SFU. Cox explains his earliest sports memories involved soccer, rugby and basketball, but he says being introduced to tennis at age
11 was the most significant. “That was one of the greatest things that ever happened to me because it really changed my life in terms of athletics. I started to play tennis and I loved the game.” He would go on to work with one of Canada’s premier tennis superstars, Grant Connell, who reportedly noted, “when David travelled with me on the tour, we achieved more firsts for Canada than in any other era.” In a BC Hall of Fame feature story, Cox explained he’s a big fan of excellence. “Excellence is determined by factors such as the opportunity to train and work, motivation and support,” he said. “The two big issues are belief and work ethic.What binds it all together?You must have a passion for what you do. Passion is huge.” Other 2021 BC Sports Hall of Fame class members include: Ð Jason Delesalle – athlete Ð Gerry Gilmore – athlete Ð Dale Mitchell – athlete Ð Gino Odjick – athlete Ð Eli Pasquale – athlete Ð Judy Broom – builder Ð Kelly Mann – builder Ð 1961-62Vancouver Firefighters Men’s Soccer – team Ð Gene Kiniski – pioneer Ð Karin Larsen – media Ð Ron Jones –W.A.C.

DamianWarner earns unofficial title of “the world’s greatest athlete” afterTokyo Olympics performance Jess Balzer
“The world's greatest athlete” put on a performance June 14 during the 2022 Harry Jerome Track Classic in Burnaby. DamianWarner, who earned the unofficial title after claiming decathlon gold for Canada at theTokyo 2020 Summer Olympics, took part in the men's open international 110-metre hurdles and men's long jump. The gold medallist won both events at Swangard Stadium, finishing with a time of 13.68 seconds on the track and a jump of 7.69 metres across the sand. “Every single time you can go into a competition that pushes you, it’s always a step forward,”Warner said during a news conference on June 13 to promote the event. During the 2020 Summer Games, the 32-yearold from London, Ont., set an Olympic record and became the fourth man to break the 9,000-point mark in decathlon — a challenge consisting of 10 track-and-field disciplines. Warner matched his world best time in the 100-metre race (10.12 seconds) and broke a 24-yearold Olympic decathlon record in the long jump at 8.24 metres.

Dagney was a serious child, one of two daughters born to hard-working immigrant parents from Sweden. She attended Otter Road School and worked at Otter Co-op, where she met the love of her life, Harold. She and Harold raised two young daughters at their home in Burnaby, Lougheed area. Dagney was a dedicated mother and homemaker. Her gardens were large and bountiful. She climbed ladders to pick fruit and also to tackle paint jobs. She had great skill in intricate sewing and in making jams and applesauce. In 1961, she suffered traumatic injuries in a car accident on the family’s vacation. She unexpectedly survived and was determined to walk again - a process over many years and surgeries. She achieved her goal and walked, although with difficulty. In 1965, the family moved to New Westminster, near Woodward’s, where Harold worked for more than 30 years. Dagney loved being around her grandchildren and other children, volunteering at Herbert Spencer Elementary. She lovingly took on the role of “Gramma” for many - both children and adults. She also enjoyed fellowship at Queens Avenue United Church. Always creative, in later years Dagney enjoyed first attempts at water colours and acrylic painting. She loved animals, Hallmark movies, and doing puzzles with her family. She was predeceased by her adoring husband Harold and her eldest daughter Janice Nicholson (Wayne). Dagney passed peacefully in hospital, after the care and vigil of her loving granddaughter Monique Green (Jeff). She is also survived by her devoted daughter, Wanda Gendron (Garth), grandsons Adrien Nicholson (Krista), Roger Gendron, Randy Nicholson (Drealle), Owen Gendron, and great-grandchildren Breanne, Paige, Shya and Jase. We gratefully acknowledge the excellent care provided by New Westminster first responders, and the nurses, doctors, and support staff at RCH emergency and the 6th floor units. The family will be having a small celebration of life in their yard for friends and family early in the summer. In lieu of flowers (which her cat, Lucky, will unwisely eat), please consider making a donation to BC Women’s Health Foundation in her memory. Condolences may be offered at www.kearneyfs.com Kearney Columbia-Bowell Chapel 604-521-4881
