Sharing tales from far away City community project highlights the stories of newcomers to Burnaby Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
The Burnaby Intercultural Planning Table is organizing a storytelling project so refugees and new immigrants can share their tales with the community. “It’s like a living legacy, an oral piece that supports the work we are doing,” said Jody Johnson, the table’s project coordinator. “Every single time we can give our newest residents a voice, it supports them and their attachments to the community.” The storytelling project includes training for new immigrants and refugees living in Burnaby, with an intermediate to advanced level of English. The storytelling training lasts 12 hours, and participants must be able to conduct two public performances over the next 10 months. The Burnaby Intercultural Planning Table is a consortium of groups and agencies that coordinate help for local refugees and immigrants. According to Johnson, the project participants will be invited to share their stories, where appropriate, at future planning table events, either as individuals or as a panel. There will also be chances for the public to hear the stories, but times and locations haven’t been decided yet. She said the stories may also be translated and shared with ethnic media outlets. People interested in the storytelling training can attend one of two Stories Page 5

Waiting for a garden plot Cayley Dobie staff reporter
Spring has arrived over at the Burnaby and Region Allotment Gardens where a new crop of gardeners are eagerly awaiting plots. And they could be waiting a few years, according to Don Hatch, vice-president of the Burnaby and Region Allotment Gardens. Hatch, who has been working his own plot for more than a decade, says the turnFor over for a plot in the gardens photos, is less than 30 each year. This scan is out of the 374 garden plots with that make up the 5.9 hectares of land leased from the city since the mid ’70s. Since its inception, the garden has increased in popularity and it takes about three years from the time someone applies for a plot, until they actually get a plot. One of the reasons they’re so popular is because of the size of the plots they offer gardeners, Hatch said. “We are probably the largest allotment garden in the Lower Mainland … our plots are 1,000 square feet each, which is extremely large considering that most of your community garden spaces in Vancouver and New Westminster (are) small,” he said. The waitlist for plots didn’t just crop up overnight either. Hatch and his wife also waited about two years before they finally got their plot, back in 1999. Most people keep the plots for years before moving on, or retiring their horticulture inclinations, he said. “For the last five or more years we’ve had a waiting list of approximately 100 people, and we turnover roughly 25 plots each year. So the waiting list goes down, but then it repopulates,” he said. “There’s people constantly looking for gardening space.” Most gardeners renting plots are from the surrounding apartment and condo buildings in South Burnaby, there are even a few home owners who don’t have enough space in their own gardens, Hatch said. Another draw for gardeners is the low fee for membership. When they get their plot, gardeners are asked to pay an annual membership fee of $20, and it costs another $80 each year for the plot rental. Hatch said this is a great bargain considering the size of the plots. Almost all of the money collected goes back into the gardens for maintenance and equipment. “We have a lot of pathways that are grass and have to be cut. We maintain a tractor and a lawn mowing machine so there’s a fair bit of expense,” he said. “We also have two buildings and a container on site.” As far as planting, seeding and harvesting, the plots are the responsibility of the renter and the allotment garden requires only that each plot make room for a flower bed, which is part of a beautification project. But for those green thumbs who don’t want to wait three years, or more, Burnaby has many other community gardens. These include the North East Burnaby Community Association Garden, the Second Street Community School Garden and the Heights Community Garden Association.

Local farm supplies Choices Cayley Dobie staff reporter
For three years, Dave Carlson has been running Burnaby’s Common Ground Community Farm, growing a variety of crops for shareholders, but the farm’s salad greens will be sprouting up in Choices Markets across the Lower Mainland. At a recent Farm Folk City Folk “Meet Your Maker” event, Carlson met representatives from Choices Market who were interested in selling his salad greens in their stores. “They want my salad greens for all their salad bars in all their stores,” he said. “That’s pretty awesome. They want over a hundred pounds of lettuce a week.” This is a big deal for the farmer who only took over the CSA (or community supported agriculture) farm three years ago. “You don’t really make any money with CSAs, it’s more to provide people with healthier foods, so this way I can actually support the farm with a little income coming in,” he said. By choosing to take the farm in a slightly different direction, Carlson is scaling back the amount of shares available in the CSA farm this year. Instead of 50 shares, like previous Visions* The Bay* Shoppers Drug Mart* Staples* Reitmans* Sport Chek* Home Depot* Lowe’s Canada* * not in all areas
seasons, there are only 40 shares available this year. He’s already sold about 25 of them. “That’s still a lot of food, and it sill makes us feel good that we’re providing it for people,” he said. In addition to the Choices deal, Carlson – who also runs a catering business serving local film productions – plans on selling produce and ready-made meals from his catering truck at the farm. “People could buy fresh produce and they could also eat the produce that I’m growing. So it’s really branching out,” he said. The road outside the farm, which is located at 7354 North Fraser Way, is being paved and Carlson hopes when it’s finished more people will stop by the farm for lunch or breakfast, or a bag of produce. The catering truck would be open during the day, from Monday to Friday, he said. “I’ve been doing film catering for like 25 years and I own the catering truck so it just only makes sense to utilize (it for) my products,” he said. In an article last year, Carlson told the NOW he was looking forward to the introduction of a goat for cheese and maybe some chickens for eggs. The goat was a success for Carlson, and he’s excited about another season
of fresh goat cheese. “They’ll be due in June, so I’ll be doing cheese again this year,” he said. Carlson has also secured some chickens for fresh farm eggs, and he’s installed a number of beehives for honey products, which he’ll be selling once they’re ready in the fall. On top of all that, Carlson said he has already started working on this season’s crops, which will include peppers, eggplants, carrots, corn, beets, kale and more. “I’ve got a huge crop of garlic this year,” he said. “I did garlic last year but it didn’t work so well. This year I planted it earlier, so hopefully that’s working.” Last season, Carlson learned that not every crop thrives in the B.C. climate. Crops such as tomatoes will be cut back this season. He’s also avoiding planting crops too densely in order to give them more room to grow. Common Ground’s salad greens will be available at Choices Markets all year. Otherwise people can purchase produce by registering as shareholders for this season.

who rented space in the gym was going to sign the lease over to himself and was going to honour and take over the memberships. “We are deeply sorry for any inconvenience that this transfer has caused you,” the email states. “We are currently looking at options to ensure the services are honoured.” When Geddes and several other members went to the gym a few days later at night, there were notices about the closure and also a response from Dean Kotopski, the physiotherapist who rented a space in the gym. (The response can be seen at www.novahf.com.) Kotopski states that he was never going to take over the gym and never had an agreement or received money to be able to honour the memberships. He owned about 10 per cent of shares in the company, and states he was deeply disturbed by the actions of the management in claiming he would take over. Kotopski
also said it was negatively affecting his “reputation and name as a caregiver in this community.” “I am truly sorry for the financial and moral loss so many of you have suffered,” he states. “This is not how I do business, and if I were in charge things would have gone much differently.” In an interview with the Burnaby NOW, Kotopski said he has not heard from Nova’s management since, but he did send them a letter from his lawyer about a possible defamation suit. He also said he has lost money from his investment. The Better Business Bureau and Consumer Protection B.C. has looked into the gym’s sudden closure, as well. Mark Fernandes, of the bureau, said Ann Michelle Costa was the director of Nova, and Mike Darling and Ralph Darling were part of running the gym. Fernandes said the bureau has received about 80 inquiries about the gym since March. To read the full version of this story, go to www.burn abynow.com.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Shin needs to come out of hiding
I am writing to you about Jane Shin with the B.C. NDP for Burnaby-Lougheed. For all Burnaby-Lougheed residents, B.C. citizens and taxpayers, it is only fair to get to the truth about Jane Shin. Why is she in hiding so long? Is this appropriate behaviour to the people she is to serve? It is totally absurd and disrespectful. The Korean community is also having a tough time with this whole affair. It’d be great to have an MLA of Korean descent, but Jane Shin is too controversial and has begun to create a lot of disappointment. I also think Jane Shin’s disappearance during the

election campaign was disrespectful to the other candidates in the race. And how could a riding not have had an all-candidates’ debate? I think Adrian Dix and the B.C. NDP also will have to be accountable for all this confusion and disorder. We, as voters, citizens and taxpayers deserve to have an honest, reliable, sincere and responsible MLA. I hope reporters will help us get the answers we need. I also hope some appropriate action will be taken against a questionable individual like Jane Shin. We cannot accept any lame excuse like “misunderstanding by Korean media” or “mistranslation” because these are simply not true, as (Jennifer Moreau’s)

blog on Jane Shin’s CV serves as one example. Our society cannot condone such dubious and dishonest conduct. Many KoreanCanadians are very ashamed. I already have less respect for the NDP; and trust, based on this incident, alone is out of the question for them. It’s like Dix and the NDP are telling us, actually forcing the citizens, to accept and tolerate a dubious and dishonest individual. And all this to win a riding – at a bigger cost in the long run. This is immoral. And I’m not happy with the way Dix and the NDP have been handling this candidate and this latest controversy, beginning with her “Chinkasauruses” comment. B. Jung, Vancouver
Jane Shin should resign Dear Editor:
I am surprised that the NDP, a party that prides itself on its ethics and integrity, would allow a person of such low ethical standards to represent it. Based on the publicly available record, Jane Shin’s ethical failings should have disqualified her from ever seeking public office let alone serving as an MLA. I find it interesting that Adrian Dix disqualified the
NDP candidate in Kelowna for blogging inappropriate remarks about First Nations people and French-speaking Canadians. Why was a different standard applied when Jane Shin blogged equally inappropriate remarks about Canadians of Chinese ancestry? There is also the matter of her professional credentials. She calls herself doctor but apparently she has never practised medicine, has never been a member of the College of Physicians and Surgeons and in fact has a medical degree from an unknown medical school on a small Caribbean island. In my opinion, that is deceitful in that she clearly intended to mislead the public respecting her professional credentials. In addition there is the confusion respecting her residency. I understand that she posted on her website that she has resided in Burnaby for the last two years when in fact it appears that she has been living in Surrey with her mother and has a mailing address only in Burnaby. The issue here isn’t where she lives but that once again she has sought to mislead the public. I think that the Burnaby-Lougheed voters deserve an explanation from their newly elected MLA and that failing a satisfactory explanation of her behaviour she should resign.

over their party’s leadership but only became intense and focused during the 28-day writ period. Clark can now stop campaigning and focus on governing. She has rebuilt her party and renewed her caucus (half of them are first-time MLAs, many of them with experience at the municipal politics level). Past controversies (the HST being the most notable) have now been wiped clean from the slate. The people have spoken and have sent an unmistakable message: Clark and her party are the ones they trust, and not the NDP. Two years ago, shortly after Clark and Dix became leaders, I spoke at a business gathering and held up that now-famous Province newspaper photo of a beaming Christy Clark wearing a Vancouver Canucks uniform and a
picture of Dix looking uncomfortable in an ill-fitting suit. I suggested that campaigns were all about themes and images, and that the contrast in those photos was indication of the enormous advantage Clark had over Dix. Since then, of course, Clark faltered time and again as premier, while Dix patiently bided his time as he watched what was appeared to be a government going over a cliff. My original assessment of Clark’s strengths had been replaced by doubts of her leadership. But then the actual campaign began. And the differences between the two leaders was magnified and put on display. It came down to a choice between a beaming, bouncy and positive woman and a serious, uncomfortable and uninspiring man. The result
shows voters didn’t really care what happened the past two years and were more concerned about the future. And in the end, they went with that beaming woman in the Canucks jersey over the unsmiling fellow they didn’t really know. Christy Clark now has been given a mandate by the people, and even though only about half the electorate voted, it’s a strong one. She proved to be a dynamic political campaigner, and her challenge now is to show she’s also an effective governor. But until she falters, she should be given the benefit of the doubt and the chance to show her stuff. And I’m not wrong about that. ◆ Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Kinder Morgan application OK’d The National Energy Board approved a tolling application linked to Kinder Morgan’s pipeline expansion plan last Thursday. The approval does not mean the pipeline expansion will go forward, per se. The application only covers the tolling methodology Kinder Morgan can use to charge customers if the pipeline is expanded. Kinder Morgan Canada was not taking media interviews Thursday but issued a statement on behalf of president Ian Anderson. “Today, the National Energy Board approved the commercial aspects of the project,” he said in a media release. “The decision reinforces the market support for our expansion plans and it provides us the necessary economic certainty to proceed. As we continue the process, we look forward working with the new B.C. government and will remain committed to listening to questions and concerns as we develop our application to file with the NEB later this year.” Kinder Morgan wants to twin its existing pipeline, which runs oil from Alberta to the West Coast, increasing capacity from 300,000 barrels per day to 890,000. Vessels go to the Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby to fill up with oil, and the associated marine traffic would rise to roughly 408 tankers per year.
as mistakes or misunderstandings. Shin’s online information started changing once the media began asking questions, and the NDP said that was because they wanted everything consistent. The only response the NOW received from Shin was an emailed statement sent by her campaign manager. “I try not to pay attention to these attacks, but obviously it doesn’t feel good to have your background unfairly questioned,” Shin stated. “I worked very hard to earn my Doctor of
Medicine degree, and I’m proud of my medical education and my decision to follow my passion for teaching.” When Shin’s candidacy was announced, she was touted as the first KoreanCanadian woman to run for the B.C. legislature, but members of the Korean community have also contacted the NOW and written letters, raising questions about her background. As someone who holds a doctor of medicine, Shin can call herself a “doctor” like anyone else with a PhD.
She was trained as a medical doctor but has not practised and did not complete her residency. She does not have a licence to practice medicine in B.C. She currently teaches students in the health-care sector at Vancouver Community College and has also worked at BCIT. As of press deadline, the NOW had yet to hear from Shin, but we welcome any clarification on the matter. To read Shin’s full candidate bio, go to Jennifer Moreau’s blog at www. burnabynow.com.

Steamworks brewery opening in Burnaby Vancouver-based company to launch brewery in city this summer which is designed to fill 250 bottles per minute Stefania Seccia staff reporter
While dozens of breweries seem to be popping up everywhere else in the Lower Mainland, Burnaby is finally getting one of its very own. Steamworks Brewing Company is moving a brewery into a 30,000-square-foot facility at 3845 Williams St., which is slated to open to the public this July. Twenty-four thousand sq. ft. will be dedicated to production lines, packaging bottles, canning and kegging for Steamworks’ various brews, including its seasonal ones such as the popular pumpkin ale, Saison and raspberry ale. The rest of the space will have offices and a tasting room. “We’re all very excited about the project,” said Caolan Vaughan, Steamworks’ brewmaster. “We all can’t wait to be making some fantastic beers in Burnaby and linking Vancouver and Burnaby together. It’s a great project … I’m excited to be making some world-class beer here.” Leading up to its opening, the company will be working through city permits, installing its multi-million dollar brewing equipment and setting up the facility. The public will be able to come to the brewery for tastings, purchase packs and bottles of beer and get to enjoy the 1955 building’s character, according to Steamworks president Walter Cosman. “We’re very excited to be the first brewery in Burnaby,” Cosman told the Burnaby NOW in a phone interview. “We first and foremost plan to have a launch party here for the brewery and a kickstarter – we’re in the beginning stages of planning that in July.” Although prices haven’t been officially set, fees for a growler (a two-litre jug of freshly brewed beer) and filling it up will be in the $18 to $20 range, with refills being about $12 to $15. There will also be four-ounce glasses for tasting. He described the old-style building as having lots of character with old wooden beams – “perfect for our needs.” Cosman said Steamworks intends to be a community player and will get actively involved in the city through events and sponsorships. Steamworks currently has a 12- to 18hectare litre brewhouse at its brew pub

location in Gastown. It will be stepping it up a notch in Burnaby, with a 50-hectare litre production planned. The Burnaby site will fill 250 bottles a minute, which Cosman says is still five or 10 times slower than a big-time beer producer – but it’s fast enough for their
needs. “It’s definitely a big step up for us from going to a small brew pub to a large-scale production brewery,” Cosman added. Those interested in seeing how Steamworks creates its brews will get the chance to, as the Burnaby brewery will have tours, as well.
“I think the average beer consumer now is more sophisticated and educated,” Cosman said. “They want to know where their beer is coming from, how it’s made.” Steamworks beer is made with natural ingredients, with no preservatives or additives, according to Cosman. “It’s like going to your local butcher or going to your local bakery,” he said. “You can get the chance to see everything in front of you. It goes a long way with consumers.” Although a tour schedule has not been made yet, Cosman said it will complement the tasting room and appeal to the five senses. “I know that the Burnaby population loves to get out and enjoy their activities,” he said, “and enjoy a beer once in awhile.” For more information about Steamworks Brewing Company, visit www.steam works.com.

The company is putting on a self-titled show that gives the audience a view of the choreography developed over the past year during the artist-inresidence program, which takes inspiration from the theme “expect the unexpected.” The company’s choreographers focused this season on developing new choreographers and choreography from within the company, and this show will be a culmination of their works-in-progress. Ballet B.C. will be onstage from May 23 through 25 at 8 p.m. at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, at 6450 Deer Lake Ave. Tickets are $32 for adults, $27 for students and seniors, available from

Library shows art all over town
The Burnaby Art Gallery has three off-site exhibitions at local branches of the public library
until July 8. At the Bob Prittie Library (Metrotown), at 6100 Willingdon Ave., the Amber Albrecht exhibition is a display of a variety of media including print, watercolour and pen and ink by artist Amber Albrecht, whose work focuses on plant life. At the McGill Library, at 4595 Albert St., a collaborative exhibition by artists Heather Aston, Jamie
Evrard, James Mah and Michela Sorrentino, called Monotypes: An Edition of One, features selected monotypes – images created using a printmaking technique. Evrard will be on hand for a free public talk about the process of monotyping at the library on Sunday, June 16 at 2 p.m. Finally, the Tommy Douglas Library, at 7311 Kingsway, is showing Paul
de Guzman’s work in a self-titled exhibition that features his series of work called Invisible Cities, using the structure of the book to create sculptures that reference architectural plans and drawings.

Burnaby nurses given prestigious awards MEDICAL FILE Marelle Reid
wo local nurses were recognized for their professional achievements at the recent Nursing Excellence Awards ceremony hosted by the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia. Betty Reid Girard and Steve Silva received excellence in nursing practice awards for their respective contribution to nursing practice. Girard was recognized for her more than 20 years of work as a frontline clinical nurse, teacher, cardiovascular care specialist and patient advocate. She has worked at B.C. Children’s Hospital, Royal Columbian Hospital,
Fraser Health and Kwantlen University. Silva was recognized for his more than 10 years of work as a renal nurse and recently a vascular access specialist at St. Paul’s Hospital’s hemodialysis unit in Vancouver. Nominees for the awards must demonstrate outstanding performance in at least four of the college’s six professional standards. Potential winners must also exhibit competence and excellence in their own work settings.
Brentwood Town Centre shopping mall recently donated $7,500 to the Burnaby Hospital Foundation for the purchase of new medical equipment at the hospital. As Burnaby Hospital celebrates its 60th anniversary, the donation will help purchase diagnostic, surgical and medical technology that will help thousands of
patients each year, according to a press release from the foundation. “For over 50 years, this community has been Brentwood Town Centre’s home,” said Emma Fyfe, general manager of Brentwood Town Centre, in the release. “Burnaby Hospital plays an important role in our community for both our customers and our employees. This donation is our way of saying thank you and celebrating the hospital’s 60-year history of helping everyone.” Over the past year, the Burnaby shopping centre has held a variety of fundraising programs and events to raise the funds with the support of customers and tenants.
of B.C. The survey found 61 per cent of people living here – including Burnaby residents – are concerned about getting the degenerative brain disease, despite it not being as prevalent in B.C. as cancer, heart disease or even diabetes. “There is still a lot we don’t know about the causes and we don’t have a cure, so it’s not a surprise that Alzheimer’s disease is ranked so high as a health concern,” said Dorothy Leclair, an Alzheimer’s Society of B.C. support and education coordinator, in a press release. According to the poll, 39 per cent of people in
this province know someone with Alzheimer’s. Age is the greatest known risk factor, and as the baby boomer generation moves into their 65plus years, this becomes more of a concern for the largest demographic group in our population, Leclair noted. A more positive finding from the survey is that 52 per cent of respondents believe there will be a cure found in the next 10 years. In the meantime, there needs to be more awareness and education about the disease, said Lori Kelly, another support and education coordinator for the society. “The reality of the
impact is often unexpected and incredibly overwhelming as this heartbreaking illness progresses,” she noted. An early diagnosis means earlier access to support and medical treatments to help manage the symptoms of the disease. Here in Burnaby, families can turn to the society’s local support and education group, which meets monthly. To learn more about the disease and about the Alzheimer Society of B.C. go to www.alzheimerbc. org. Do you have an item for Medical File? Send items to Marelle at mreid@burn abynow.com.

Environmental strategy takes three phases Stefania Seccia staff reporter
Burnaby council continues to push its environmental sustainability strategy through several phases of public consultation. A three-phase consultation plan has been developed with the first phase slated to begin immediately. The first phase will focus on building awareness about the city’s existing initiatives and obtaining feedback from the public for priorities about environmental sustainability.
Public hearing for 41-storey tower project in Metrotown area
Larry Wright/burnaby now
Home tech: Doug Fast is the CEO of Burnaby’s NYCE Control, which manufactures home sensors that can ping a smart device if there’s any activity at home while you’re out.
For a video, scan with
Monitor home from an iPhone Stefania Seccia staff reporter
Home monitoring is a growing market that could be worth $60 billion by 2017, according to Juniper Research, and a Burnaby-based company is getting in on it. Founded in 2010, NYCE Control is a global supplier of wireless home sensors. It is quickly becoming part of a shifting market as a solution provider for cable companies looking to offer home security services. In Eastern Canada, cable companies such as Rogers Communications Inc. are already offering home security as part of cable packages. But in Western Canada, cable companies haven’t hopped on board yet. However, NYCE has partnered with international home automation company Control4 to offer their home sensors, according to Doug Fast CEO of NYCE. Control4, based in Utah, has 25 dealers across the Lower Mainland. “So the foundation right now is home security because people are willing to pay for home security,” he said. “Over time, it will start to climb up from home security to lifestyle, and you can add elder care, life and home, healthcare … and energy sav-
ing. Those are all the things that can be built on this foundation.” The company has achieved $1.1 million in sales since May 2012. NYCE develops its sensors in its Burnaby head office and manufactures them in the Lower Mainland. When a sensor detects movement in someone’s home, it can notify the owner through a smart phone or tablet app. “Our sensors send you something happened,” he said. “The door opened, it shouldn’t have opened … it tells the Internet and that pings you on your phone or your cellphone device.” Fast said the other shift in the market is phone technology. “Everybody has a smart phone,” Fast said. “You have an iPad, broadband, you have a smart phone, everybody you know has a smart phone – there’s broadband everywhere. It seems to make sense; can I manage my house from my phone or from my iPad or from my tablet device?” The company is in discussions with big box retailers to offer their products and has a signed agreement with Control4 and cable operators in Eastern Canada. NYCE does the hardware end only but may offer the software applica-
tions in the future. “The challenge is getting the home owner to pay the money for it,” he said. “But homeowners have shown that they are willing to pay for home security.” Fast said the uses for the sensors are limitless. “A motion sensor is really saying if someone is in the room or not. You might use that for security, (or) for energy,” he said. “Have my teenagers left the room and left the light on? Maybe we don’t need to heat the main floor if no one is on the main floor.” High-end home automation offered by Control4 is popular amongst multi-million dollar home owners, according to Fast. “If you’re an average guy, you’re probably going to want to go down to (a big box retailer) and do it yourself,” he said. “Your grandmother, she may not want to do it herself, she may want to call an installer to do the monitored security.” Fast said his company’s sensors last five years until the battery needs replacing. They use ZigBee, which is a two-way wireless signal that requires less power to run than WiFi. For more information, visit nyce control.com.
A proposed 37-storey apartment tower above a four-storey commercial podium in the Metrotown area received first reading at a recent council meeting. The tower at 6225 and 6255 Cassie Ave. will have a proposed total of 170 residential units in the apartment building. It will also include a public plaza. The rezoning application will go to public hearing on May 28 in council chambers at 7 p.m.

Ceramic brake pads OK? CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi
Dear Tom and Ray: I recently needed to replace my brakes, and the shop sold me on ceramic brake pads. The pads have a lifetime warranty, which is very appealing. I also was told that ceramic pads will generally prevent rotors from warping, eliminating the pulsating effect that one feels when braking with warped rotors. After making the purchase, I’ve been told by several people that ceramic pads wear the rotors more evenly, preventing warping, but they also wear the rotors far more quickly. In your experience, did I save money by going with ceramic pads? Or am I actually spending more money, both up front on the pads and down the road on additional rotors? – Jared RAY: Here’s the brief, sordid history of brake pads, Jared. The first pads were made out of shoe bottoms. My brother remembers sticking his foot out the door and dragging his shoe on the road until the car either stopped or hit something. TOM: Yeah. That was last week, in my ‘78 Fiat! RAY: Brake pads in recent years have been made out of asbestos, other organic

BCAA helps kids’ camp The B.C. Automobile Association and Belfor Property Restoration teamed up May 16 to help prepare an Easter Seals B.C. summer camp for kids with disabilities. The goal for the camp is to provide safe and fun activities in an environment where the focus is on abilities, not disabilities. As part of BCAA’s Volunteer Day, employees helped create more accessible trails, a new outdoor amphitheater, new accessible picnic tables and benches and the list goes on and on. “In all my years with Easter Seals I can’t remember a time when we had so many helping hands come out to get the camp ready for the camping season,” said Rick Harker of Easter Seals B.C. in a media release. The buildings at Camp Squamish are more than 40 years old, and because of the camp’s location on the West Coast,
the rainy damp winters can be hard on all aspects of the buildings, fences, ground cover and lawns. “It’s a challenge to keep up with all the maintenance required, but with the wonderful help of BCAA and Belfor Property Restoration, we will now be able to show off some extra things like accessible picnic tables and benches in great colors,” Harker said. All camp activities are designed to build confidence and independence in a recreational environment. Campers are also encouraged and supported to participate, with their peers, in activities they may never have tried before including: climbing on walls, going for nature walks, playing wheelchair sports and taking leadership training. firstname.lastname@example.org

Burnaby man among those arrested at Mission grow-op Cayley Dobie staff reporter
A 33-year-old Burnaby man was arrested in Mission on May 3 as part of five search warrants executed by B.C.’s anti-gang police. According to a press release, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of B.C. shut down five marijuana grow-ops believed to be linked to outlaw motorcycle gang members operating on properties in both Mission and Langley. “These are not the classic marijuana grows in a closet in the basement or even ones seen in typical residential homes. We are
talking about large, highly sophisticated grows that are using the latest technology to boost the growing cycle as well as extremely high levels of security,” said Sgt. Lindsey Houghton in the release. “For the owners of these grows, it is all about creating an easy, untaxed, very lucrative income stream from the production of marijuana. It’s all about money and, in this case, we believe that money is associated with organized crime.” Officers executed the first warrant in the 4500block of 206th Avenue in Langley and from there progressed to four other locations in Mission. The Burnaby man was
found at the third location in the 14000-block of Sylvester Road, according to the release. Officers seized 10,000 marijuana plants and about 200-pounds of dried marijuana with an estimated value between $5 million and $10 million, according to the release Officers also seized about $20,000 from the Langley property and production equipment worth about $1 million. The Burnaby man was one of five men arrested on May 3. They have all since been released and charges are being considered.

Lakers toppled by Timbermen in WLA opener Tom Berridge sports editor
The Burnaby Lakers didn’t get the start they wanted in the Western Lacrosse Association season opener. The senior A Lakers conceded an 8-7 loss to the visiting Nanaimo Timbermen in the first game of the WLA summer season at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Friday. The Lakers played catchup for half the game before taking their first lead midway through the middle period on pickup Darren Kinnear’s second goal of the game on a shorthanded marker that made the score 6-5. Doug Langlois tied the score just before the end of the period on an unassisted goal, his second shorthanded marker in the match. In the third period, Burnaby’s Chase William then put the home team ahead again, on a third consecutive short-man marker, at the 12:16 mark of the final period following a nice setup by Shaun Dhaliwal. But minutes later Burnaby’s good fortune would run out when recent
Nanaimo pickup from New Westminster, Michael Berekoff, found teammate Blake Kenny going to the net to assist on the gametying goal with four minutes left on the clock. First star Graham Parker then got the winner, slipping by a Burnaby defender on the shortside to bury the game-winning counter with just over one minute left. “It was definitely not the start we were looking for,” said first-year head coach Rory McDade. “(Zach Boychuk) did what he does. He stood his ground and that was the difference.” The Nanaimo goalie was overlooked in the game stars despite stopping 48 Burnaby shots on goal, including 19 in the final 20 minutes. Burnaby outshot the TMen 55-37 in the league opener, which had all the dropped balls and incomplete passes fans come to expect in a first game of the season. “We have to work on boxing out in front of the net and keeping an eye on the opposition, and offensively it’s just going to take Lakers Page 30

Third year a charm for Douglas College softball Tom Berridge
The Douglas College Royals came oh, so close to their firstever championship women’s softball title. The upset-minded Royals fell just one-run short following a 6-5 loss to the second-seeded Wenatchee Valley Knights in the Northwest community college final at Chemeketa Community College in Portland, Oregon on Monday. “I’m very impressed with the girls. … It’s a builder. We went there last year and finished sixth. It’s an improvement. We’ll go back at it next year and see what we can do,” said Douglas head coach Gord Collings. Trailing 5-0 heading into the sixth inning, the Royals staged a heroic five-run rally to tie Wenatchee Valley, before the
East region champion scored the eventual game-winning run in the bottom of the inning on a sacrifice fly to left field. The No. 6-seeded Royals made program history, advancing to the championship final for the first time in the program’s short three-year history. Melanie Gulbransen led off the top of the sixth inning with a leadoff single. Hillary Strelau advanced pinch runner Niki Boyd to third on a single before No. 2 batter Iris Chow batted Boyd home with a base hit. Kyla Myre then loaded the bases and Karley Hession brought home the Royals’ second run on a base on balls. Sydney Jeffers batted in Chow with her second hit of the final and Alisha McFadden added two more RBI before the rally ended. But that’s as close as the Royals
would come. In the final inning, Douglas left the tying run on base after designated hitter Catie Younger struck out swinging for the third and final out. The win was the first-ever title for the Knights and only their second appearance in a Northwest final since 1985. Douglas College advanced to the double-knockout final with a 5-4 upset victory over the No. 1 seed Mt. Hood on Sunday. Myre, who pitched all but four innings in the seven games played, went the distance, striking out five batters for the allimportant win. “Kyla was special. She carried us,” said Collings. Trailing 4-2 heading into the top of the sixth inning, Taryn Uyeno led off with a single and later scored on a Gulbranen onebase hit.
Chow then batted in the eventual game-winning runs with her third hit of the day – a twoout, two-strike single that scored Jeffers and Boyd. Collings said the three-run rally in the sixth against Mt. Hood gave the Royals added confidence they could come back in the final against Wenatchee Valley. “In the Mt. Hood game we were down 4-2 and we used that as a motivating factor. ‘Hey, we can do this,’” he said. Earlier Sunday, the Royals sent No. 3 and North region rival Bellevue packing for a second time in the competition following a 9-1 win. Myre again registered the complete-game win, allowing just three Bellevue hits. Douglas led 1-0 after one inning, but broke the game open with a five-run fourth and three more in the bottom of the sixth.
In the fourth inning, Gulbransen got things started, clubbing home McFadden and Boyd with a two-run double. Strelau cashed in Gulbransen with a run-scoring triple and later scored on an infield error. Chow also scored. The Royals handed Bellevue its first loss of the championships in the quarter-finals on Friday, defeating the regular season division champs 8-3. Myre again recorded the win, striking out four and allowing just five hits. Myre further helped the cause with two runs, two hits and one RBI. Jeffers added three hits, two runs and one RBI, while catcher Tiana Greenough added some late insurance runs with a threerun dinger in the final seventh inning. Softball Page 31

Standout career comes to early end Tom Berridge sports editor
Riley Loewen of Burnaby ended his NCAA Division II field lacrosse career four points shy of an all-time points record and one goal away from a second-straight appearance in a national championship final. The Limestone College attack scored three goals and added one assist in the Saints’ 18-17 overtime loss to unbeaten No. 1 Mercyhurst College in the Div. II semifinal in Erie, Pennsylvania on Saturday. Limestone held two-goal leads twice in the final quarter, including Loewen’s set up to teammate Corey Rich for a 17-15 lead with five min-
utes left to play. But Mercyhurst would not lay down, scoring two times in the final minute of regulation time, including James Chayka’s game-tying tally on a turnover with just four seconds left to play. In the sudden-death OT, Deven Alves potted the game-winner at 2:56 of extra time to send Mercyhurst back to the national championship final for the second time in three seasons. “It was tough. I wanted to bring a national championship to the program. That was my goal,” Loewen said on a long-distance call Monday. “At the end of the game, I thought we were going to win and go to
Philadelphia.” Mercyhurst finished its 14th straight NCAA record appearance in the Div. II nationals, following a 16-2 overall record and league and conference tournament titles. Loewen ended his university career second in overall program scoring with 269 total points, just four points behind 2000/03 alumnus Devan Spilker and first in six other categories, including a program-best 184 all-time goals. The converted box lacrosse player also finished fifth all-time with 85 career assists at Limestone. “All the seniors, we left everything out there. We’re proud of the four years we had,” Loewen said.

some time,” McDade added. Justin Salt tallied Burnaby’s first goal of the season on the power play to halve a 2-0 deficit at 7:03 of the opening period on a breakaway goal off a turnover in the Lakers’ defensive zone. Burnaby accounted for just one even-strength goal in the match and it was a thing of beauty. Pete McFetridge hit a streaking Kinnear with a
long pass and the former Calgary Roughneck buried Burnaby’s 3-3 goal behind Boychuk with a slick behind-the-back shot from in close. “It was your typical first game – anyone can win. But they got the job done and we didn’t,” said McDade. “We got another tough opponent in Victoria next week. You can’t ask for a better place to go to to get focused.” The Lakers will face the Shamrocks in Victoria on Friday.

JR. A LACROSSE
Scoreline maligns stronger effort by improving Lakers Tom Berridge sports editor
The Burnaby junior A Lakers will have to learn to not read too much into a final score following a pair of recent B.C. Junior Lacrosse League losses. On May 16, Burnaby wound up on the losing end of an 11-8 defeat to current second place Langley. The Lakers then got thumped 16-2 at home to the leagueleading Delta Islanders at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Sunday. Although the discrepency in the final scores suggests the Delta matchup was non-competitive, the reverse is true. Both losses came largely in a singleperiod span. In Langley, Burnaby surrendered three goals in the opening period and then matched the Thunder in goals and shots the rest of the way. At home, a 10-1 middle-period meltdown was largely responsible for a very good Delta club executing at the top of its game rather than Burnaby rolling over and playing dead.
“(Delta) had a lot of chances in the second period. You can’t give their top 3 guys those opportunities. It’s going to hurt,” said former Islander Trenton Matsuzaki, who came to Burnaby in a trade in 2011. “But it’s coming along, there’s a good vibe.” That vibe was apparent against the Thunder. Rookie keeper Jack Woodhouse stopped 42 shots in the loss and firstyear runner Tyler Kirkby tallied his first hat trick of the season to spark a twoperiod rally that fell just short. Third-year Brendan Shea potted a pair of second-period goals before Langley scored two goals less than 20 seconds apart to ice the contest 13 minutes into the final frame. At the Copeland centre, Delta opened the second period with a power-play goal left over from a fourminute back check in the opening period. The next few goals all had athletic merit and some just plain good luck, including a sensational shorthanded marker by
NOW player of the game Eli McLaughlin, who pulled down a sky-high pass from Cody Nass to score in close on Woodhouse. Delta then got a Hollywood scripted breakaway goal from Ben Snider coming out of the penalty box. League scoring leader Cody Nass, with 10 points Sunday and 48 overall, followed with a goal for the highlight reel. The firstyear righty picked up the ball and stick that had been checked out of his hand in a crowd of Lakers, turned toward the goal and beat a couple of defenders before scoring his 18th goal of the season on a great single effort. Nass also assisted on nine other Delta counters, including four of McLaughlin’s five goals. “It’s going to take the whole team to make a difference,” added Matsuzaki. “We have a lot of firstyears. It’s going to take that veteran leadership in the room to keep them going and keep things positive.” Burnaby is in Coquitlam tonight at 7:30 p.m.

Softball: Building a lasting relationship continued from page 29
The back-to-back victories over Bellevue produced a mutual respect that carried over from last season, when Douglas stayed to cheer them on after the Washington school eliminated the Royals, Collings said. “(Bellevue) is our conference rival, the team to beat in the conference. But we have developed a relationship with that team,” he said. “We cheered them on last year. The Bellevue coach told me the girls wanted to come out and support (Douglas) and would it be OK if the girls wore our other set of jersies. That’s really touching. I’ve never seen anything like that, and I know that (relationship) is going to go on.” Douglas opened with a 4-3 extrainning victory over Treasure Valley on a game-winning run by Hession on a pitching error on Friday. On Saturday, the Royals opened play
with a 4-1 loss to No. 2 seed Wenatchee Valley, despite outhitting the opposition 8-2 in the championship semifinal bracket. Emi Nomura batted in the Royals’ only run with her second hit of the day. The three-run difference all came down to infield errors in the third inning. With the loss, Douglas was relegated to the one-loss backdoor bracket. Later in the day, Douglas got back on track downing Spokane 17-7 in with a 19-hit effort. Carling Hare came on in relief of Myre to record the win. Myre led all hitters with two hits and four RBI, while Alisha McFadden had two hits and three RBI. Stelau, Nomura and Greenough also had three hits apiece. Myre, Jeffers, Chow and Strelau were all named to the all-tournament team. firstname.lastname@example.org
