Babies and the arts: A closer look A

Fun times:

Sarah McPherson, aged 20 months, plays with mom Jennifer McPherson during Toddler’s First Dance class at Cameron Rec Centre. The class is one of many local offerings for families who want to get their babies and toddlers involved in dance and music early in life. In a special report today, assistant editor Julie MacLellan looks at what this early exposure to the arts does for kids.

s you read this, families around Burnaby are packing their bags to get their little ones ready for music or dance class. And we do mean little: many of them can’t even walk themselves to class, never mind carry their own bags. Music and dance classes for babies and toddlers are becoming popular with local families. Private studios and city-run parks and recreation programs offer programs that bear such names A Special Report as Mini Music and Baby’s First Dance. So what’s with the boom in baby arts? Arts reporter Julie MacLellan – herself the mother of a 15-month-old – thought she’d do a little investigating and find out. As it turns out, we’re not on a quest to turn out a new generation of baby Baryshnikovs and mini Mozarts. But we are increasingly embracing the notion that early exposure to the arts is good for our kids. And it seems science is on our side. In today’s Burnaby NOW, MacLellan takes a closer look at babies, toddlers and the arts. See pages 3 and 11.

Renegade dentist gets three-month jail term Stefania Seccia staff reporter

The manhunt continues for the renegade dentist who practised illegally in Burnaby and throughout the Lower Mainland, as Tung Sheng (David) Wu was finally sentenced on Oct. 15. Early Tuesday morning, B.C. Supreme

Court Associate Chief Justice Austin Cullen sentenced Wu to three months’ jail time for being in contempt of court for his illegal dental practice. Wu has not been present to any court proceeding and is still in hiding. “He is a person without honour or regard for Canadian civil society,” said Jerome Marburg, CEO of the College of Dental Surgeons of B.C. “He preyed on the

vulnerable and put many people’s lives at risk.” Last August, the court found Wu in breach of a 2003 court order prohibiting him from practising dentistry and issued a warrant for his arrest and a permanent injunction. “I understand upwards of 450 people approached the health authorities,” Marburg said about Wu’s former clients.

“That’s not nearly the amount of folks he was preying on.” The investigation and legal proceedings has cost in excess of $140,000 to the college, but that does not include the ongoing costs, according to Marburg. “We’ve got to get him first,” he said about recovering the cost to the college. “That is the problem. … We’ve got to find

ear the words “dance class,” and you might envision a row of tiny ballerinas, hair pulled back into neat buns, pink tutus and ballet slippers at the ready as they reach for the barre with small hands. You might not think of a room full of giggling, running, spinning munchkins, playing with instruments, dancing with scarves and putting themselves through an obstacle course – more often than not going off course and having to be steered back to the task at hand by mommy or daddy. Then again, most of these tiny dancers aren’t quite two years old yet. And none of them have any idea how many benefits they’re getting out of being here at Cameron Recreation Centre on a Monday morning. This is Toddler’s First Dance, a Burnaby parks and recreation program taught by Marcia Jones. It exposes little A Special Report people – from the time they’re confidently walking up to age two-and-a-half – to the fundamentals of movement and music. t’s a cause near and dear to Jones’s heart. She’s a dancer and teacher who specializes in using movement to enhance early childhood development. And by early, she means truly early – from infancy onwards. Long before kids can walk, or even crawl, they can join a “dance” class and learn, alongside their caregiver, ways to stimulate their development. “We know now, the research is showing us, early movement is crucial for the development of certain parts of the brain,” Jones says, noting that the lower brain and mid-brain regions are all developing rapidly in the early months. “Those parts of the brain really get cemented in the first year. The first year of life is when it’s really crucial,” she says. Ideally, she says, all children cycle through

What needs to happen for optimum physical development, she says, is that kids have the freedom to move through those patterns naturally – not to be confined in carseats, swings and bouncy chairs too much of the time. “They need to be able to mobilize themselves and work it out for themselves,” she says. That’s why she stresses independent movement on the floor, especially on the tummy, for the two-month-to-crawling set in her Baby’s

First Dance classes. If they don’t get a chance to work all those things out in the first year, Jones says, kids’ brains are resilient: they will find a way to compensate. But it may lead to movement that’s not efficient or other problems that crop up later on. he points out that the young brain is constantly forming and changing, and as the babies move into toddlerhood – like this batch of youngsters creating organized chaos in the Cameron Centre’s Hemlock Room – they’re working hard on balance and coordination. It’s also important for toddlers to stimulate their vestibular systems – the inner ear that regulates the sense of balance and other processes related to movement and spatial orientation. “Toddlers especially like to tumble and twirl and fall all over the place,” Jones says. “They’re trying to find a way to get all the fluids moving in their brain.” That movement in turn helps them learn, especially for those who are kinetic learners. “They need that movement to think.” Setting a solid foundation in the early years is important, Jones says, because the stronger the foundation, the more naturally learning will continue to flow. “It sets up the foundation for the rest of the child’s life,” she says. As intimidatingly academic as that may sound, Toddler’s First Dance is anything but. It opens with a welcome song – each child has their moment in the spotlight to stand up,

Yes, it’s cost us a lot of money, … (but) we’re much more upset people like this exist and prey on the public.” A former patient’s complaint about Wu’s treatment sparked the initial investigation in late May, and the college hired a private investigator to determine if the unregistered dentist was in fact illegally practising from his home on Southwood Street, in Burnaby. Wu was illegally practising on about 1,500 clients who were all warned to get tested for hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus and HIV, because his practice did not meet the college’s infection prevention and control requirements. The college has also contacted Canada Revenue Agency, after it found out Wu has been sending a significant amount of money overseas. The agency is also investigating the case. The judge gave Wu until Oct. 9 to appear in court and plead his case but delivered the sentence in his absence on Oct. 15. Marburg says the college is renewing its plea to the public to bring forward any information about Wu’s whereabouts. Anyone with information on Wu is asked to call the college’s investigators at 604-209-1708. “There’s no shame in having been a client of Mr. Wu,” Marburg said. “And there is no reason to protect him or hide him. … It’s time for him to be found.”

Julian demands new ethics rules for MPs Don Hauka staff reporter

Stiff penalties for MPs who demand payment for services they were elected to provide and an end to parliamentarians sitting on corporate boards. Those are two key policy planks in an ethics code for MPs being proposed by Burnaby-New Westminster MP Peter Julian. The NDP caucus chair wants to strengthen ethics rules by making them law and giving the ethics commissioner the power to hand out penalties to politicians who violate the legislation. Julian said there are currently no penalties for MPs who behave badly.

“It’s like people robbing a bank and being told, ‘Just pay the money back, and you’re free to go.’ There are no consequences. Right now, nothing happens.” Julian said his party is challenging the Conservatives and the Liberals to agree to the proposal and beef up the rules governing MPs and senators’ behavior. The NDP’s three-point proposal would: $ Prohibit parliamentarians from sitting on the boards of big corporations. $ Stop parliamentarians from double-dipping by banning payment for work that is part of their job as an MP or senator. $ Strengthen ethics rules

by enshrining them into law and empowering the ethics commissioner to administer real penalties when politicians break the rules. As an example, Julian criticized Liberal leader Justin Trudeau for charging speaking fees after he was elected as an MP. He said Trudeau showed “unusually poor judgment” in accepting the payment. Julian said a $10,000 fine for a breach of the ethics law would give the rules some teeth. The proposal comes as Parliament is set to resume with the Speech from the Throne today. editorial@burnabynow. com

are people who live on the edge of an existence on the streets that may claim them at any time. They may not be bright spots on society’s radar at any given moment, but they nonetheless require support services and a better opportunity to achieve permanent housing. The Greater Vancouver Regional Steering Committee on Homelessness points out that “invisible” homelessness and the more visible variety are closely connected, and efforts to deal with the

former will go a long way to helping solve the problems of the latter. The first step to dealing with any problem is to identify it – and to make society as a whole aware of the magnitude of the problem that exists. Indeed, in a caring community such as ours, that awareness seems always to take us to the next step: active efforts to find a solution. Hopefully, by working on those solutions together, we can make Homelessness Action Week obsolete.

Backtracking on greenhouse gases IN MY OPINION

E

Keith Baldrey

ver since she became leader of the B.C. Liberal Party, Christy Clark has sought to distance herself from her predecessor, Gordon Campbell, whenever possible. And she may be doing it again when it comes to dealing with climate change. At the very least, there’s no doubt she lacks Campbell’s religious-like zeal on that issue. Campbell loved to boast that B.C. was leading all of North America when it came to fighting climate change. He set ambitious targets, enshrined in law, for reducing greenhouse gas emissions (33 per cent of 2007 levels by 2020) and brought in the carbon tax. But soon after Campbell unveiled his ambitious plan, the world economy collapsed and a recession ensued. Suddenly, governments – including B.C.’s – experienced plunging revenues and massive deficits. The reverberations from that economic disaster continue to be felt. The Clark government, like many others, is still hungry for revenues and less interested

in spending a lot of time talking about things like carbon credit schemes and greenhouse gas emissions. And while her government insists it is still committed to achieving the targets set out by Campbell, the centrepiece of its economic strategy is massive industrial activity that could greatly increase GHG emissions. The creation of liquefied natural gas plants in the northwest, for example, will greatly increase the amount of natural gas burned to create energy. That, combined with the government’s decision to freeze the carbon tax and to push for the establishment of a bunch of new mines, will also likely make it more difficult to reduce GHG emissions. But it’s not hard to figure out why Clark is going this route. The recent provincial election showed that the economy has become the number 1 issue with British Columbians. Clark campaigned successfully as a champion of growing the economy and creating jobs. Environmental issues such as climate change have been elbowed into the background. While they still rank high in importance, they are not the issues that determine who forms government in this province. While her chief opponent, the NDP, tears itself apart on

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Don’t give Rottweilers bad press Dear Editor:

Re: Kudos for dog bylaw, Burnaby NOW, Letters to the editor, Oct. 9. To clarify: Under the bylaws, a vicious dog is “a Staffordshire bull terrier, an American pit bull terrier and any dog generally recognized as a pit bull or pit bull terrier and includes a dog of mixed breed with predominant pit bull or pit bull terrier characteristics.” Temperament of a Rottweiler: According to the FCI Standard, the Rottweiler is good-natured, placid in basic disposition, very devoted, obedient, biddable and eager to work. Their appearance is natural and rustic, their behaviour self-assured, steady and fearless. They react to their surroundings with

great alertness. The American Kennel Club says it is basically a calm, confident and courageous dog with a selfassured aloofness that does not lend itself to immediate and indiscriminate friendships. A Rottweiler is self-confident and responds quietly and with a wait-and-see attitude to influences in its environment. It has an inherent desire to protect home and family and is an intelligent dog of extreme hardness and adaptability with a strong willingness to work, making them especially suited as a companion, guardian and general all-purpose dog. Just to also add, all breeds, including poodles and golden retrievers, can bite depending on certain circumstances. Obviously I don’t like the idea of Rottweilers getting a bad rap; I have one! C.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Target owners, not dogs

Dear editor:

Re: Kudos for dog bylaw, Letters to the edtior, Burnaby NOW, Oct. 9. I regret to inform the author of this letter that of the four dogs breeds she has listed, only the pit bull is being required to be muzzled and not the Doberman, German shepherd or Rottweiler. Also, as the owner of a German shepherd, I take issue with characterization of these breeds of dogs and their owners. I have never and will never regard my dog as a weapon. I’ve spent considerable time training and socializing my shepherd, and I am sorry that you do not agree with my choice of dog, but that does not make her a weapon. She is, in fact, an excellent family dog, as all of the breeds you appear to be afraid of are. While she may be correct in that there are bad owners that may misuse their dogs, the vast majority of dog owners are responsible, and it is unfair to make such blanketing and disrespectful statements. Yet again, this brings us to the point of those against breed-specific language. Bad

people do bad things, so punish them for their choices. A bad driver wrecks his car and seriously injures a bystander. Should all cars be banned? No. The driver of the car is held accountable. It should be the same for dogs. I sincerely feel bad for the author if she truly believes that owners of large dogs imply such a threat to her and others, as it simply is not the case. The vast majority of dog owners in Burnaby are responsible, otherwise we’d be reading a lot more about dog attacks in our local papers. I would remind the author that in this day and age it is simply inexcusable to discriminate against people due to physical characteristics and should be the same for animals. This is not just the views of HugA-Bull, but also the SPCA, the American Humane Society, Canadian Veterinary Medicine Association, the Canadian Kennel Club, the American Kennel Club, American Bar Association, the Center for Disease Control and a large portion of the population – or as our mayor and council like to brand it, a small vocal minority.

Clark: Liberals may change direction on climate change continued from page 6

whether or not it can support big industrial activities such as LNG plants, fracking and pipelines, Clark can further make economic issues her own and thus ensure she and her party remain in government. Clark is fond of stressing the need to find ways to say “yes” to big projects rather than simply rejecting them out of hand, as the NDP did in the election campaign when it opposed the Kinder Morgan pipeline. So look for Clark to fashion policies that are indeed about saying “yes” to a number of projects. I wouldn’t be surprised if the B.C. Liberals somehow find a way to throw their support behind the Kinder Morgan pipeline and perhaps, down the road, revisit their decision to not support Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline. If Kinder Morgan and

Enbridge can convincingly show they have addressed concerns about oil spills and cleanup, and that they have the support of more First Nations than not (in other words, not necessarily unanimous support), I suspect Clark will find it easier to say “yes” to one or both of the projects. Of course, there are potential pitfalls that may await the Clark government as it pushes the economy as its bread-andbutter issue. Chief among them is if those liquefied natural gas plants don’t materialize. LNG Minister Rich Coleman says he’s reasonably confident that three will be built, but many analysts will be surprised if there’s more than one at the end of the day. There is a lot of money riding on this all-in gambit by the Clark government. The government’s own analysis suggests five LNG plants could contribute between $4 billion and $9

billion a year to government coffers. Even if there’s only a single plant, the return could still exceed more than $1 billion a year (if the Asian market for LNG remains strong, which is by no means a sure thing 10 years from now), which is substantial. When money like this is dangling in front of the Clark government, it’s not hard to see why one of her predecessors’ most cherished initiatives has lost its lustre. So don’t be surprised if Campbell’s emission targets are perhaps changed or delayed through legislation as we draw closer to 2020. The potential financial payoff from LNG and other industries is simply too huge for a government to pass up, even if it means turning its back one of the former premier’s most cherished policies. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

For the record

A story in the Wednesday, Oct. 9 Burnaby NOW, Hart House rehab needs more money, requires clarification. The first sentence states that: “Hart House needs more money in order to complete its rehabilitation project.” In fact, it is the City of Burnaby – not the

restaurant itself – that requires that money in order to complete a rehabilitation project on the city-owned heritage building. The project was originally budgeted for $210,000, but the budget has now risen to $295,000 because of the need for reconstruction of wood framing.

Burnaby firefighters lent a helping hand to their New Westminster neighbours when a fire broke out on Columbia Street on Oct. 8.

October 25, 26, 27, 2013 While the West Coast Women’s Show may be the ultimate girls weekend here in Abbotsford, Glacier Media and Tourism Kamloops want to send you and your girlfriends on an exclusive ladies weekend away.

This EXCITING WEEKEND AWAY in Kamloops, BC includes:

Cayley Dobie staff reporter

Burnaby firefighters didn’t hesitate to send crews to help their New Westminster neighbours when the call came in that part of the Royal City’s historic downtown core was on fire. At about 4 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 8, Burnaby received a call alerting the department to a blaze at 634 Columbia St. In response, the department sent five fire trucks and 20 firefighters to provide assistance if needed, Assistant Fire Chief Darryl Smith told the Burnaby NOW. “We’ve been on standby in New West since about 4 o’clock this morning,” he said on Thursday. Burnaby, which was called in along with Delta Fire to help with the firefight-

ing efforts, responded to fire alarms going off in surrounding buildings in the downtown core. When Smith arrived in New Westminster Thursday morning, the E.L. Lewis building at Columbia and Mackenzie streets had already collapsed and New Westminster crews were working hard to keep the fire contained to as few buildings as possible. “There was a lot of a smoke, it’s a major fire incident. There’s a lot of damage,” he recalled. While New West firefighters battled the blaze, Burnaby firefighters responded to fire alarms going off in other buildings in the area. “We (responded) to a building fire in a highrise, and all it was really was residual smoke from the fire on Columbia,” Smith said.

Artist’s vision: Cathy places paintings on the wall at the Express Yourself art show Oct. 5.

Artists share vision

Art is personal expression – and nowhere was that more true than at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts on Saturday, Oct. 5. Artists from My Artists’ Corner held a show at the Shadbolt Centre recently. The group – known as MAC for short – provides a home for artists who live with mental health issues. For more, see www.myartistscorner.ca.

How to love the later years Jacqueline Omstead, General Manager The Mulberry Retirement Residence

Moving into a residence can be very unsettling for aging adults. Typically, they greatly fear losing their independence. Interestingly enough, through retirement communities that offer ‘independent living’, residents actually regain their independence along with more freedom. It comes from being relieved of the burdens of cooking and housekeeping, yardwork and upkeep. Suddenly, they rediscover a precious commodity: time! They then have more opportunity to build new friendships, learn a new skill, pursue a hobby or embrace a new OVITEE GTSQJTL FPP VRTET endeavours contribute to their happiness and wellbeing. It’s a well-known fact that physical, mental and social stimulation result in improved health and longevity.

I’ve seen it many times over myself. Having choice, and a lot of it, is important for the state of mind in adults at retirement communities. When residents have access to numerous activities, the choice to engage socially or not, choice in meals and in how to spend any given day, they experience a stronger feeling of independence and ability.

Researchers earn honours MEDICAL FILE Stefania Seccia

T

wo Burnaby doctors received a prestigious research award from the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research. The foundation announced 59 recipients on Sept. 17, and among them are Dr. Razieh Eskandari and Dr. Dave Pasalich – both Burnaby residents and post-doctoral fellows from Simon Fraser University. The awards are worth $37,000 a year over a maximum term of three years. Eskandari’s research is working to improve treatment for Alzheimer’s by identifying compounds that protect the brain from degeneration. Tau is a protein that can act abnormally in Alzheimer’s disease and can lead to neuronal death, but tau’s toxicity can be significantly reduced by altering the levels of a sugar modification in cells – known as O-GlcNAc. “Eskandari’s research focuses on synthesizing compounds that will help increase levels of OGlcNAc in brains, which in turn will protect neurons from the damaging effects of abnormal tau,” a media release stated. “By identifying new molecules and validating this target, her study has the potential to improve outcomes for the estimated 500,000 Canadians living with Alzheimer’s disease.” Pasalich is reaching whether an evidencebased parenting program can help reunite families after children have been placed in out-of-home care. The Michael Smith foundation is funded primarily by the province; its award competitions have funded more than 1,500 projects since 2001. For more information about the 2013 research projects, visit www.msfhr. org/2013-trainee-competi tion-results.

It’s urgent

Urologists and nurses are calling on the province to improve access to overactive bladder medication. Unlike every other province, B.C.’s medical services plan only covers one medication to treat

an overactive bladder through B.C. PharmaCare. Currently, the province is undergoing a class review of its overactive bladder medications. The Canadian Nurse Continence Advisors group, along with the Canadian Continence Foundation, is urging people to join their letterwriting campaign. The letter-writing campaign, “It’s Urgent,” aims to call on the new minister of heath to fund more medications under the medical services plan. For more information, visit www.itsurgent.ca.

Gita estimated about 20 to 25 people came out, but they raised roughly $2,000. “We have it every year, but it looks like every year the number is decreasing,” she added. For more information on Pratham B.C. Foundation, go to www. prathambc.org.

The Pratham B.C. Foundation held a walkathon in Burnaby’s Central Park recently, but the turnout was low. The event was a fundraiser to help children in India learn to read and write. “It went well,” said organizer Gita Patel. “We were hoping to have more turnout, but there was another event going on at the same time.” The recent Connections Coffee House anniversary celebration was a big hit. The event, held on Sept. 7, marked the second-year anniversary for the nonprofit volunteer-run café, backed by the Brentwood Park Alliance Church. More than 30 volunteers helped put on the event;

Roughly 300 people came out for the celebration, which included a barbecue, cotton candy, cake, face painting and entertainment. “Having so many people out and mingling gave it a really strong community event feel,” said Daryn Mitchell, one of the organizers. “We want to say a big thank you to all the volunteers who helped put it on, and a big thank you to the community for so many people coming out and making it a great event.” Do you have an item for Here & Now?

Weed pullers sought The Lower Mainland Green Team is looking for volunteers to help repopulate Burnaby’s Stoney Creek with native plants this Saturday. The Lower Mainland Green Team, organized by Lyda Salatian through Meetup.com, is a group of volunteers that gathers regularly to help the environment. They remove invasive species, collect trash and harvest vegetables, among other things. The Stoney Creek event involves pulling invasive species and replacing them with native plants. The work starts on Saturday, Oct. 19, at 9:45 a.m., and volunteers meet at the Jennifer Atchison Environmental Centre at 2730 Beaverbrook Cres., close to Lougheed Town Centre. The work should be done by 1 p.m. Volunteers should bring water, and the event runs rain or shine, so dress for the weather. It’s also best to wear long sleeves and pants to protect your limbs from thorny plants, and bring your own gardening gloves and work boots. Since the Lower Mainland Green Team is all about helping the environment, organizers suggest people carpool, cycle or take transit to reach the site. Tools and refreshments will be provided. For more on the Lower Mainland Green Team, go to http://www. meetup.com/The-LowerMainland-Green-Team. – editorial@burnabynow. com

Knights shock Owls in second half Getting their starting quarterback back put a swagger back in the St. Thomas More Knights offence. The AAA varsity Knights proved the truth of their head coach’s words, putting up 36 unanswered points in the second half behind the return of pivot Chase Malcolm to defeat the Kelowna Owls 51-8 at the Apple Bowl in Kelowna on Friday. The third-quarter start was the first for Malcolm since suffering an injury in the team’s season opener against Notre Dame more than a month ago.

“When you get a guy like Chase (Malcolm) back in the lineup, it gives the team a lot of confidence,” said head coach Bernie Kully. “We had our swagger in the third quarter.” Leading 15-8 at half time, Malcolm came in and completed five-of-seven passes for 62 yards and a touchdown, while rushing for 48 yards on his own and a second TD in one quarter of action. “We had such a disappointing week last week in terms of playing to our potential and expectations it was nice to rebound this week with improvement to our practices and that it translated into a better performance,” Kully added.

Sprinter qualifies for U.S. nats

Edmonds senior Norm Lesage qualified for the U.S. masters’ track and field championships following a gold-medal run in the 100 metre dash at a qualifying meet in Las Vegas, Nevada on Oct. 5. Lesage, who holds Canadian national age-group records in both outdoor and indoor sprints, posted a winning time of 16.97 seconds to qualify for next year’s U.S. national championships. The 83-year-old Burnaby runner also raced to a silver medal in the 50m. The following week, Lesage also medalled at the annual Huntsman World Senior Games in St. George, Utah. At the Games, Lesage finished runner-up in the 100m despite shaving nearly four-tenths of a second off his gold-medal run in Nevada. He took the gold medal at 200m, clocking a winning time of 34.94. Lesage also finished second at 400m. “My times are good,” Lesage said. “It makes me feel so good to line up against people my own age.”

Tom Berridge sports editor

Malcolm Lee put up 100 yards of total offence, including a touchdown passing. Shane Noel rushed for 87 yards and another score. Andrew Flett also had a rushing TD, while Kevin Marshall caught five passes for 79 yards and a touchdown. Marshall also contributed on defence with six tackles against the Owls. The STM defence also had a turnaround week. Defensive back Raf Posypanko ran an interception back for a six-point score, while Noah Usherwood and Anthony Carteri led the team in tackles with nine and seven, respectively. The win lifted the Knights back into contention behind the sec-

ond-place Terry Fox Ravens – the No. 2-ranked AAA team in the province. STM fell out of the top-five rankings following last week’s shutout loss to the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers. This week’s matchup will be every bit as challenging, admitted Kully. “We definitely have to be prepared up front,” Kully said. “Our athletes have to utilize their strengths and you can never underestimate the importance of protecting the ball and winning those turnover battles.” The Knights take on Terry Fox at Percy Perry Stadium in Coquitlam on Friday at 7 p.m.

Rookie righthander Aaron Enns tallied four points in the Simon Fraser University hockey club’s home opener. Enns scored a goal on the power play and set up Jono Ceci for what proved to be the game-winner as SFU won its B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League opener 7-4 over the Thompson Rivers Wolfpack at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Saturday. Enns, who scored 96 points in 154 games with the La Ronge Ice Wolves of the Saskatchewan junior A league, had a goal and three assists to lead the club Clan. Enns, a Campbell River native, also played a season in the NCAA with Division III Manhattan College before transferring to SFU. The Clan jumped out to a 3-0 lead after two periods on power-play goals from Jesse Mysiorek and Jared Eng and the first of a pair by Nick Sandor, in the final minutes of the opening period. Graeme Gordon backstopped the win with 30 saves in the Clan cage. Ceci, who tallied the game-winner from Enns and Mike Ball at 10:47 of the wild, eight-goal third period, wound up with a three-point night. Thompson Rivers closed out the final period, scoring three times in the final eight minutes, including a shorthanded goal by Silvan Harper. “It was a cautious, apprehensive start, … but after three solid weeks of hockey against Calgary, UBC and the Boston trip, I think we’re playing at a level we have to be,” said SFU club head coach Mark Coletta. SFU is on the road this weekend for a twogame series against the University of Victoria. The following week, the Clan will host league champion Selkirk College on Oct. 26 for SFU Hockey Halloweeen Night.

SFU ATHLETICS

Giants hang on to first despite draw

Clan posts wins in NCAA conference Alexander Kleefeldt helped Simon Fraser University hand Western Washington its first loss of the season. Kleefeldt was named the Great Northwest conference defensive player of the week following SFU’s 2-0 victory over Western Washington in men’s soccer on Saturday. The 6-3 Clan defender scored the game-winning goal off a header from a crossing kick from Alex Rowley in the 12th minute. “I was very happy with our back four and goalkeeper Brandon Watson,” said Clan head coach Alan Koch in a school press release. “Collectively, they nullified Western Washington’s attack all night long and were full value for the shutout.” The goal was the third this season for Kleefeldt, who has eight points to date and helped the Clan to a fourth shutout. SFU also got an unassisted second-half goal from Jules Chopin off a giveaway. The win was the 10th this season for SFU, which

is currently first in the Great Northwest conference with a record of 6-1-0.

Another victory

The Clan women’s volleyball team posted a second conference win in as many weeks following a four-set victory over Western Oregon on Oct. 10. Four SFU players recorded double-digit kills in the win, including Devon May with 15. Amanda Renkema posted 12 kills, while Mackenzie Dunham had 11 and Kelsey Robinson added 10 winners. Robinson also shared a team-best 14 digs apiece with Alanna Chan. After dropping the opening set, SFU won the next three 25-20, 25-18, 2521. On Saturday, SFU lost to Saint Martin’s College in straight sets. With the loss, the Clan’s record fell to 7-5 and 2-4 in conference play. SFU hosts Alaska Anchorage in the West gym this Thursday and Alaska Fairbanks on Saturday. Both games start at 7 p.m.

Lum and Delmaestro placed fifth in both the short and free dance programs, finishing with 122.23 points. Russians Anna Yanovskaya and Sergey Mozgov won the event with a 149.98 total.

The Northwest Giants put the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds in their place following a 2-2 draw in B.C. major midget hockey on Saturday. The Giants responded with an 8-2 victory in Chilliwack on Sunday morning. Colton Kerfoot led the charge with two goals, including the eventual game-winner, in a threepoint outing. Kerfoot is currently tied for second in overall scoring with seven goals and 14 points to date. Quinn Thompson also garnered three points, including a marker in a four-goal opening period for the Burnaby Winter Club-based Giants. Keyvan Mokhtari and Burnaby’s Justin Szeto also potted a pair of counters apiece. The win kept the Giants atop the 11-team loop with 13 points and a record of
