Burnaby mayor says lack of sufficient on-site security leaves site vulnerable

As Kinder Morgan tries to figure out how 16 Greenpeace activists were able to get onto its Westridge Marine Terminal property and chain themselves to equipment and the front gate, Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan says the issue may be a lack of sufficient on-site security. “Over the years, we’ve expressed our concerns with Kinder Morgan … relying on more remote centres some distance away and reducing the amount of people working at the plant,” Corrigan told the NOW. “It’s a concern we’ve expressed a number of times. What’s true we always find with companies is their economic interests are really the first priority and they consistently bring that attitude to the table.” As the Burnaby NOW reported in its last edition, 16 activists from the international environmental group were on site Oct. 16 protesting the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain expansion project. If approved, the $5.4-billion undertaking would twin the existing 1,150-kilometre pipeline between Strathcona County, Alta. and Burnaby. Corrigan said he predicts the Kinder Morgan facility in Burnaby will face more protests in the future. “The reality is these kind of facilities are always potentially targets, and I think we’ve known that for a long time now, that these facilities should be carefully watched because there is a significant public danger as a result of them,” he said. “Any time you’re storing or transporting Protest Page 8

Coming on the heels of the breedspecific legislation decision, Burnaby city staffers are once again recommending amendments to the animal control bylaw that work against what activists want. More than a year ago, Kathy Powelson, executive director of Paws for Hope Animal Foundation, appeared before council and asked the city to ban the sale of puppies, kittens and rabbits. A report from city staff, presented to council this week, instead recommends continuing with the sale of puppies and kittens, requiring the spay and neutering of rabbits, and banning the sale of turtles. Council tabled the report at its Oct. 21 meeting to allow the public to comment on it over the next two weeks. It will make its decision about the staff recommendations after the two-week period. Mayor and councillors at Monday night’s meeting were either ready to pass the recommendations that night or wanted the report to better address animal welfare. Both Coun. Pietro Calendino and Coun. Sav Dhaliwal suggested that stores should also spay and neuter kittens for sale to address the stray cat population problem. Coun. Dan Johnston said he wants the public to come out in the next two weeks to have their voices heard. Mayor Derek Corrigan agreed and

‘IT AIN’T EASY BEING ON WELFARE BECAUSE I LIKE FOOD,’ – STEFANIA SECCIA

Reporter’s meal plan costs $3.60 a day Stefania Seccia staff reporter

A

16-package Lipton chicken soup box, three stalks of celery, five bananas, three apples, a loaf of white bread, one small bunch of kale and peanut butter. That was my life for a week. Our newsroom was notified of the Welfare Food Challenge just before it started on Wednesday, Oct. 16. I stepped up to the plate, challenging the notion that it would even be a challenge. I participated in the 30-hour famine in high school, I was an Italian turned vegetarian for almost 10 years – what would one week of spending a welfare budget of $3.60 a day, or $26 for the week, on food do to me? Unfortunately, the lack of preparation time to spend the budget wisely was something I felt immediately the next day when my meals lacked a certain variety. Each day for breakfast I’d have toast with peanut butter, and sometimes with a banana sliced on top, which I called my fancy toast. My snacks were half a piece of celery and half an apple. Then lunch was half a packet of the chicken noodle soup with kale ripped into it. Dinner was the exact same. Dessert, if you can call it that, was toast with peanut butter. Again. I spent about $24 on everything and had $2 left over. My first worry when I agreed to do this challenge was telling my Italian family. My favourite reaction from a family member had to be from my uncle who elegantly asked, “If you had to write an experience about doing crack, would you do crack for a week?” While it’s the equivalent of the old adage, “If Susie jumped off a bridge, would you?” And while I understand the sentiment, last I checked, eating on a welfare pittance for a week is neither illegal nor threatens to kill me or scar me for life. I expected comments such as, “Well that’s stupid,” to, “you’re going to kill yourself for work,” to, “Really? Really? I’ll make you some pasta.” My mother’s first reaction was to find a loophole in the system. It doesn’t cost me anything if she

For a week: NOW reporter Stefania Seccia participated in the Welfare Food Challenge this past week. She was allowed to spend $26 on food for one week, about $3.60 a day. makes me dinner, right? Wrong. Bill Hopwood, organizer of the challenge, said the point of the week is to explain why the week’s portion for food is only $26. I asked him if it was acceptable to keep pre-made plans to go to a friend’s house for a dinner party, but he noted that it defeats the purpose of trying to survive on almost nothing if I ate at someone’s house all the time. “Over time, your circle of friends changes – it is sad, but true that many of the people on welfare (disability and unemployed) long term lose many of their former associates, some people do judge,” he said. “Also, if the invite is to a place some distance away you have to either get a bus or SkyTrain ticket there and back. “This question, in many ways illustrates exactly the difference in life between people on welfare and people who have a living income.”

According to Hopwood, the $26 comes out of the $610 welfare cheque each month. The amount for rent is about $425, then a $20 damage deposit, a book of 10 bus tickets is $21, $25 for a cellphone (for job searches and interviews), $10 for personal hygiene and then $109 for food. So when they break down the cost of food each day, it was rounded up to $3.60, which is almost $26 a week. This leaves no additional budget for clothes, coffee, hair cuts, treats or other things you’d find yourself spending money on for your social life. Registered dietician, Rosie Dhaliwal, who works at Simon Fraser University’s health and counselling services, informed me my diet lacked any dairy, and I was not getting anywhere near the suggested seven to eight servings of fruit and vegetables a day for an adult female. “The whole point of this activity is to highlight that the cost of

eating is an important issue and how it relates to poverty with B.C.’s current situation and lack of poverty action plan,” she said. “I emphasize to clients I work with in the broader community, the importance of cooking from scratch.” However, Dhaliwal said it’s often hard for people to cook from scratch if they don’t have a cooking facility or access to a kitchen, as people in that lowerincome bracket often don’t. She noted my lack of nutrition and my symptoms deriving from eating high-sodium foods and small portions of healthy food were connected. “The key piece is when you say you feel tired, you’re feeling paranoid or sensitive – all of these things for people who often have food, it’s hard to make a connection,” she said. “You can’t imagine how bad it is until it happens to you.

fuelled by glucose, we know that, people who don’t feel the repercussions of this need to be reminded.” That connection to what someone on an unhealthy diet deals with on a daily basis was precisely the point of this challenge and experience. She also consoled me by saying that what I was eating this week wouldn’t do any lasting harm to me, which I was temporarily glad about until I thought about the people whose lives I’m mimicking and what their long-term health problems could be. It’s hard to even begin to appreciate that. During the week, I was invited to a friend’s house for dinner. My senses started to sharpen and I realized I never truly appreciated the wonderful smells food can have. It’s also fairly embarrassing to bring out a packet of chicken noodles in front of people eating what looked like a glorious beef roast. On Friday, my coworkers went out for Greek food. Not only did I get the cocked eyebrow when I rejected ordering food from the waitress, but another one when I had to say no to our table’s free dessert. But my weekend was the worst. When I’m at my desk, my lunch and food are organized. There were no other options, so I didn’t face that same temptation. By the third day, I was averse to the soup. I found myself thinking, “How much is a McDonald’s hamburger?” “I can hear my heart beating through my chest,” to “If I have a nervous breakdown at work, at least I can blame my diet.” I stopped thinking about food. I stopped thinking about how much our city streets are packed to the brim with restaurants, grocery stores, markets and cafes. I realized it had to stop being about surviving or beating the challenge, but embracing my limitation’s, making the most out of it and truly coming to terms with the fact that many people, including children, live with this challenge for a lot longer than a week. Since I’ve had a consistent income, I never really stopped to appreciate that I could grab extra snacks for home, some drinks in case someone popped by and I absolutely hate to admit this, but I spent $26 on a dozen peaches at a farmers’ market this sum-

More importantly – and this is where the line between business and the business of government tends to get cloudy – a country’s prime assets are its people, and their well-being is the reason for the government’s existence, while in a corporation, people are just assets – and money is the ultimate goal. That distinction appears to have been lost almost entirely in Canada’s governance of late. Only science that

Human rights are those that do not stand in the way of monetary gain. And now, as apparently clarified by goings-on in Brazil, even our spies have identified the national interest of Canada to be congruent with the financial interests of our corporations.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR City Greens against breed bylaw Dear Editor:

After watching with interest the podcast of expert testimony from a behaviourist and dog trainer with 18 years of experience, an animal law lawyer and other well-educated dog advocates, it is surprising that Burnaby council would insist on passing unanimously the flawed bylaw as originally written. Not one councillor wavered in their support, and there was no acceptance of the generous offer from experts to assist city staff in developing a bylaw that is fair and workable. They are choosing to muzzle a subgroup of the dog population based simplistically on that breed’s appearance and fear. They are doing this despite

persuasive evidence challenging council’s beliefs and the beliefs of many in the community. While not outright banning the breed, the city will make life for all pit bull owners and their pets, regardless of disposition, more expensive and more unpleasant. Subjecting an animal to regular discomfort will probably lead to more biting – not less. Continuing these measures will discourage responsible owners from adopting the breed because people concerned with animal welfare will not be comfortable with the idea of regularly muzzling their pet. This may be the intent of the city, but the measures will also continue to encourage irresponsible people who want a “bad-ass” reputation to adopt a dog labelled as “aggressive.” Stiffer breed

specific fees and fines will also lead to lower registration of pit bulls. Despite how menacing a dog or its owner might appear to some, we cannot base our laws on their appearance or the past acts of their relatives or others that share similar characteristics. We have gone down that road before, and it is simply wrong. Other municipalities are realizing this and repealing their legislation in favour of alternative measures. There may be persuasive arguments in favour of breed-specific legislation, but no one presented such arguments. Sadly the staff report in this case was shown to be fundamentally flawed statistically, and council was outfinessed by the delegates. Instead of just listening, they chose to debate, and lost. Certainly, dogs of all breeds exhibiting aggressive behaviours need to be dealt with. It is rare for a pet to suddenly exhibit vicious behaviour without any instances of past aggressive acts. Therefore, it is an owner’s responsibility to recognize potential dangers and to take precautions with their pet when out in public or when children are in their homes. When a dog bites or attacks someone or something, there should be consequences, including possibly muzzling the pet, to ensure that behaviour is not allowed to be repeated. If the city wants to reduce dog bites, it can do so through consistent ticketing of irresponsible owners, mandatory training for all dogs exhibiting aggressive behaviour in public and better public education on how people can remain safe around pets. Decisions need to be based on the best

possible information available at the time, not sensationalized media reports and anecdote. Residents need to be reassured that their elected officials will listen to the range of facts and opinions and be capable of acting objectively and independently. Rick McGowan, Burnaby Municipal Green Party

High costs create rogues Dear Editor:

Re: Renegade dentist gets three month jail term, Burnaby NOW, Oct. 16. I think there must be dozens of them, and more to come. I wish I could find one. I believe a large part of the reason they exist is because of the outrageous fees dentists are forced to charge by their association. It is my understanding that they are told the minimum that they may charge for a procedure. This no doubt works for established practices, but what about startups whose solicitations I see in the paper every day? In my own case I was quoted a price of $3,000 to repair one tooth, maybe a three-hour job. Try and justify that. As a pensioner that represents almost three months’ income, and I need work on about five more teeth. I’m sure there are hundreds of people in serious pain due to inability to pay these unconscionable fees. The reason of course is dental insurance, where the sky is the limit. I would guess that this situation is just the tip of the iceberg and affects a majority of the population. People will seek relief wherever they can find it. Apparently in the operations that they bust, they found unsanitary conditions. Who inspects the so-called legitimate dentists for sanitation? Russ Leach, Burnaby

Trades: B.C. workers needed continued from page 6

workers in the United States to help fill those jobs. But we need workers from B.C. as well. And this brings us to our education system and whether it is doing enough to close this skills gap. Both Clark and Education Minister Peter Fassbender have dropped broad hints some big changes may be coming, in both the K-12 and postsecondary sides of the education equation. If it becomes clear to young people that the way to a well-paying job is through a trade and not a vaguely defined university degree, perhaps there will be a much bigger take-up

of a trades vocation. Any changes in the post-secondary system regarding making trades more of a priority are trickier and potentially more controversial. Universities and colleges rightly value their academic freedom and independence. However, the days of a provincial government handing over millions of dollars to a post-secondary institution with no strings attached may be drawing to a close. I’ve heard the premier say she doesn’t see the point of universities simply churning out more, to pick just one example, teachers when there is a surplus of teachers. This

may translate into her government increasing funding for trades training programs by taking funding away from other postsecondary programs. While traditionally academic degrees such as arts degrees remain valuable (the so-called “credentials inflation” means a degree is required even for jobs not needing one a decade ago) we need more young people like my family friend who are willing to step outside the box. And they must be given greater opportunities to do that, which means more government funding. Young women wanting to be welders? More please.

Derailed train was carrying oil bound for Burnaby Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

A train that recently derailed and exploded outside of Edmonton was carrying oil destined for Burnaby’s Chevron refinery. On Saturday, Oct. 19, a CN train carrying oil and propane derailed and caught fire in a rural area roughly 90 kilometres west of Edmonton. No one was hurt, but nearby residents were evacuated. Thirteen cars derailed – nine of those

contained liquefied petroleum gas, while four were carrying crude oil. “There was crude oil on that train destined for the refinery,” said Ray Lord, spokesperson for Chevron’s Burnaby refinery. “The cars that were carrying the crude oil for that refinery were not involved in the actual derailment. There will be a little delay, but we expect them to arrive as normal.” Chevron has a transloading facility in Langley, where crude transported by rail is offloaded onto trucks

and then driven to the refinery. Chevron also has a railcar facility close to the refinery, to receive rail shipments of crude, but Lord said that has been operating safely since May. Lord was unsure how much of the train’s shipments were destined for Chevron. “They weren’t damaged,” he added. “We feel crude can be transported safely by rail. We believe pipelines are still the safer, more economical way to get crude to the refinery,

that much fossil fuel there’s a potential for catastrophe – whether it’s from an accident or an intentional act.” Corrigan said the protest has disappointed him because it’s indicative of an overall community feeling that people have lost faith in the federal process. “I do want to say, that for me, my feel in my community is I think there is a lot of passion and while Greenpeace activists are a few individuals who are extremely committed, I think many people throughout Burnaby are very concerned about this

Kinder Morgan project, and as they get more information, they begin to realize the actual impacts,” he said. “I think as a politician, someone responsible for decision-making, I think it’s important that people feel it’s a meaningful process and one that gives the opportunity to truly be heard, and I don’t think that’s the feeling people have gotten so far from the application process before the NEB (National Energy Board), and I don’t think people have gotten the impression that the federal government has got an open mind on the process.”

DENTURE WEARERS!

but because of the issue I know you’re familiar with – the pipeline supply capacity – we’ve had to resort to rail, which a lot other parts of the energy industry have had to as well,” he said. The Burnaby refinery gets most of its oil supply from the existing Kinder Morgan pipeline, but Chevron has had to resort to trucks and trains to bring in enough oil, since demand

on the pipeline has been higher than the maximum volume the company can ship. For Burnaby-Douglas MP Kennedy Stewart, the derailment does not bolster support for the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion, which would increase volume on the Trans Mountain pipeline from 300,000 to 890,000 barrels per day by twinning the

existing line. The new pipeline will transport diluted bitumen, which Chevron can’t refine anyway, Stewart pointed out. Stewart said the debate should not be pipelines versus trucks or trains. “It should be why local people want a giant pipeline running through our community. It doesn’t benefit us, it won’t be used by us,” he said.

WATERMAIN FLUSHING The City Engineering Department will be commencing its annual program of flushing and cleaning watermains on October 1st, 2013 through until December 23rd, 2013. This activity may cause pressure fluctuations, some discoloration and sediment in the water supply reaching your home or business.

New e-book helps students find their direction Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

What do you want to do with the rest of your life? It’s a dreaded question many high school students grapple with, but one Burnaby woman is trying to make things easier with an e-book that helps young people find their passions and pursue their careers. Jaclyn Ling is only 22, but she already knows how difficult it can be to forge a path in post-secondary education without a clear plan. The Burnaby grad, now studying at McGill in Montreal, switched majors five times before settling on finance and entrepreneurship. “I struggled a lot in university with all the sorts of decisions you have to make when I was in high school,” she told the NOW. Ling is hoping to help others with her e-book, Planning and Decision Making for High School Students, which is full of tips to help students figure out what they want to do

with the rest of their lives. The book encourages them to examine their interests, values and strengths, and also includes an overview of the key fields of studies, followed by a section on decision-making. According to Ling, high schools don’t have the resources to thoroughly prepare students for postsecondary, and students are less motivated when they lack a clearly defined direction. And while young folks may turn to their parents for advice, there’s a generational divide, as many things have changed since mom and dad were in school. “Someone who went through it recently can provide guidance to students who are about to go through it,” Ling said. “Parents are always looking to help their children, but I think there’s a gap there because parents don’t really know what it’s like … to plan for university.” Ling describes herself as a pay-it-forward type that’s always been interested in

charitable causes, and her approach to the book project is no different. She wants to keep it a non-profit endeavour and distribute 50 copies of the publication in 10 schools for free. The plan is to get students’ feedback to help refine her book, but she needs to raise $5,000 for publication and distribution costs. She’s set up a page on indiegogo, a crowdsourcing site that fundraises for various projects, and so far, she’s raised $1,126. But there’s a catch: she only receives the money if she raises the entire $5,000 by midnight on Oct. 30. With the funding, Ling hopes to distribute her book and leave students with more confidence and motivation while pursuing their thoughtfully chosen paths. “When students are lost and not sure why they are doing something, they don’t have a lot of motivation. I guess I want them to gain more confidence for themselves and motivation

COMMUNITY BUILDING

New residential construction is having a positive economic impact in Burnaby, pouring millions of dollars into the local economy and creating hundreds of jobs.

BURNABY

A community on the grow

I

f you are a newcomer to Burnaby, you’re not alone. The city is growing and the next few decades will see tremendous change. Burnaby’s population at the time of the 2011 Census was 223,218 – an increase of more than 10 per cent over the 2006 count. And, it’s going to keep increasing. The Metro Vancouver Regional Growth Strategy projects the city’s numbers will be in the area of 345,000 people by 2041.

Growth throughout the entire Metro Vancouver region is being driven mainly by immigration and to a lesser degree by people moving here from other parts of Canada. Burnaby is a community that has opened its arms to immigrants; slightly more than 50 per cent of the people who live here were born in other countries. Most of Burnaby’s recent immigrants (people arriving between 2006 and 2011) came from China and the Philippines. To accommodate new residents, the regional growth strategy anticipates Burnaby’s number of dwelling units to reach 149,300 by 2041 – almost 58,000 more homes than the latest census numbers. There’s no wonder then that development – particularly high-density development – is going full steam ahead and transforming the city’s skyline in its four town centres of Brentwood, Edmonds, Lougheed and Metrotown. “The creation of town centres within each quadrant of Burnaby was established to help the City protect the nature and character of our single and two-family residential neighbourhoods and has allowed us to preserve over 25 per cent of our

land base for park and open space,” said Lou Pelletier, director of the City of Burnaby’s Planning and Building Department. “We have considerable remaining capacity in our town centre areas to provide for our future housing needs.” The city nearly doubled allowable building density in 2010, requiring developers to provide additional amenities such as a daycare or seniors centre. While all four of the town centres are seeing growth, Metrotown has become one of the fastest growing areas in the region. Thirty thousand new residents are expected there over the next 30 years and 20,000 new workers. The largest project in the area is Station Square where the previous mall has been demolished and work is well 4%"=;(0& #% 67= -;96 #< -3= 6#(=;9) Also under construction in Metrotown are the Metroplace , Moda , and Silver developments on Beresford, The Met on Nelson and Sovereign at Kingsway and Willingdon. Now under construction in Brentwood are Aviara at Halifax and Douglas, and Altus and Stratus in the SOLO development at Willingdon and Lougheed. All the new residential construction is having a positive economic impact in Burnaby, pouring millions of dollars into the local economy and creating hundreds of jobs. In what might end up being a record-breaking year for the sector in Burnaby, there were 1,529 new housing starts recorded from January to August – a 50 per cent increase over 2012. The estimated cost of construction for all

residential developments in 2012 was approximately $318 million. To date, for 2013, the construction value for residential development is $432 million. “This new development also contributes to development of Burnaby through completion of City infrastructure for roads, water, sewer, sidewalks and other facilities, and through development cost charges that provide for the acquisition on new park land and school sites,” said Pelletier. According to information from the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association , the value of new residential construction in Metro Vancouver in 2012 was $4.3 billion and created 19,500 person years of direct jobs and 9,800 indirect jobs throughout the province. ,4;%0/& 709 0 96;#%:* "53=;95-=" local economy spanning information technology, bio tech and life science, ="4$065#%* -1' 0%" %=( '="50* 0%" several other sectors.

urnaby’s Brentwood is a sought-after neighbourhood with great outdoor cafes and fabulous shopping, parks and trails, recreational amenities, and a historic business district, all within walking distance.

If this neighbourhood isn’t enough to entice prospective home buyers, then there’s Solo District. Jim Bosa’s Appia Developments has unveiled the second of four Solo District towers to be built on the 6.65acre site in Burnaby’s most liveable urban community, and will feature Burnaby’s tallest residential tower ALTUS. Equivalent to a 55-storey high rise, ALTUS will feature a collection of 280 beautifully appointed homes. Jim Bosa’s Appia Developments – part of the BOSA family legacy – continues its long standing tradition to build well-designed, quality homes while ensuring home owners receive exceptional service each and every time. “North Burnaby has been undergoing an urban transformation for the past 16 years by the Bosa/Appia/ Embassy Development family,” says Lisa Murrell, sales and marketing manager for Appia Developments. “Solo District is taking this urbanization to the next level.” The sweeping panoramic views are another of Solo District’s strong selling points. To the west are the city of Vancouver and Vancouver Island, to the north, the glistening North Shore Mountains and the majestic Lions, to the south, Burnaby’s Central

Park, and to the east, Golden Ears Mountains and Mount Baker. With rapid growth in Brentwood, Solo District will make this one of the fastest growing communities for the next 10 years, making it an excellent investment opportunity. “We are seeing young families from the area, choosing to remain in the neighbourhood with their expanding families and buying into the three bedroom homes,” adds Murrell. The project also includes more than 100,000 square feet of retail space in the overall project size. ALTUS will be anchored by two exciting retail tenants, which will be announced soon. The interiors, designed by Cristina Oberti Interior Design, have a minimalist, clean uncluttered urban look and are designed with living in mind – smart ef$cient energy and space saving features and spacious layouts. Built green, ALTUS features a shared car program and electric car charging stations for residents. Homes come with state-of-the-art Energy Star sustainable features, such as a geothermal heat exchange system, and shall be Burnaby’s second fully air conditioned residential building, next to Solo District’s STRATUS. Suites are out$tted with Italian Armony Cucine cabinetry with softclosed doors, engineered laminate wood #ooring, custom roller blinds and nine foot ceilings.

“It will also have a well-appointed gym on the %rd #oor of the of$ce building that will be shared with the of$ce tenants and give ALTUS residents access to an outdoor, %rd #oor outdoor multi-sport court, which is again something that Burnaby residents haven’t seen before,” adds Murrell. They’ll also be close to the urban hub, just minutes away from shopping, services, restaurants, grocery, entertainment as well as schools such as Simon Fraser University and BCIT. Across the street, they can access the Brentwood Station of the Millennium Line, connecting to downtown Vancouver in only 20 minutes. When you look at the entry pricepoint level and the quality $nishings that have been put into the spacious and luxurious homes, this is excellent value. Here is your opportunity to buy in Burnaby’s most exciting neighbourhood. For more information, call 604-298-8800 or visit www.solodistrict.com.

D-Wave gains ‘superposition’ in quantum computing BURNABY TECH COMPANY’S INVESTORS INCLUDE AMAZON FOUNDER JEFF BEZOS, ITS CUSTOMERS INCLUDE GOOGLE AND NASA

Paul’s Corner

When dignitaries joined D-Wave executives recently in cutting the ribbon on the company’s new 42,000-square-foot lab in Burnaby, there were only two possible physical states for the ribbon to be in: uncut or cut. But in the weird quantum world that D-Wave inhabits, there is a third potential state: simultaneously cut and uncut – metaphorically speaking. Subatomic particles – which have a property called spin – have been found to have “superposition” – a statistical probability of spinning in opposite directions at the same time. Quantum computing harnesses superposition, and D-Wave makes some pretty bold claims about its position in the race to build the world’s first functioning, commercially viable quantum computer. “We’re the only ones who have produced a quantum computer,” D-Wave CEO Vern Brownell – former chief technology officer for Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE:GS) – told investors and dignitaries at a recent grand opening. The new 42,000-square foot lab on Beta Avenue will allow D-Wave to grow as it ramps up production of its latest model of quantum computers – the 512-quibit D-Wave 2. In addition to the two D-Wave computers already built for Google (Nasdaq:GOOG) and Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE:LMT), D-Wave has six functioning quantum computers in its new lab and several more in various stages of fabrication. Each D-Wave machine costs roughly $10 million. But in most cases D-Wave does not sell them. Instead, Brownell said, it strikes collaboration agreements – the most recent

No two-bit computer maker: D-Wave founder Geordie Rose in front of a quantum computer one being with Google and NASA in May. “We have managed to acquire customers that are at the top of their game,” Brownell said. The company has also attracted a number of blue-chip investors, including Amazon. com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) founder Jeff Bezos, In-Q-Tel (the CIA’s venture investment arm), Vancouver venture capitalist Haig Farris and Draper Fisher Jurvetson (Steve Jurvetson – a founding investor in Hotmail – sits on the boards of both D-Wave and Tesla Motors Inc. (Nasdaq:TSLA). To date, D-Wave has raised $130 million in venture capital, employs 75 scientists and engineers in Burnaby and has a lab in Palo

Getting maximum value from your membership Paul Holden, BBOT President & CEO paul@bbot.ca Here at the BBOT we’re always thrilled when a new member joins us. However, bringing in a new member is only the beginning of what we hope will be a long and mutually beneficial relationship and over the last couple of years we have really worked hard to help our members maximize the value of their hard earned membership dollars. It all starts when we invite new members to an information session with other new

Alto, California. At the heart of D-Wave’s big black boxes – six feet by six feet wide and 10 feet tall – is a tiny niobium chip the size of a fingernail. It’s here where the quantum magic happens. Because any noise or vibration can affect quantum states, these chips must be cooled to just above absolute zero – the point where molecules stop vibrating, magnetic forces are cancelled out and superconductivity occurs. It’s this extreme cooling and isolation that requires the D-Wave machine’s large housings, liquid helium cooling and expensive and exotic materials, like niobium and goldplated copper components.

members, a number of our staff members and one or two board directors. At this session you’ll find out about our wide range of discount and partner benefit programs, how you can use our communication channels to help promote your business and about our 70+ events per year. I always offer members the following tips for getting the best out of the BBOT: !Please make sure you have completed your profile on bbot.ca (it will really help your performance in search results) !Subscribe to our newsletter to ensure you’re on top of everything that’s going on !Look through our member benefits section and please remember that many of the offers are open to all of your staff and colleagues !Share information about events with staff

and colleagues – they’re all able to use member pricing, which sometimes is no charge at all, and there are a number of events they would find useful and enjoyable !Take some time to look at how to use our communication channels, they’re a great way to share your news with our membership !We get fantastic feedback on our events and I’d encourage you to come out and try one if you haven’t been for a while. Please call me or one of the team here if you’d like some help deciding which to attend Our most valuable measure of success is the members who continue to support us and I’m absolutely thrilled that our renewals are up around 20% on last year – if you have any questions on how you can get the best out of your membership I’d love to hear from you.!

Not only is D-Wave the only company in the world claiming to have built a commercialgrade quantum computer, it also holds 100 U.S. patents to some of the key technology behind it. According to Brownell, that means any competitor that wants to build the type of quantum computer that D-Wave has built “would have to step all over the IP portfolio somehow.” “This is an extremely valuable patent portfolio,” he said.!

By Cory Redekop cory@bbot.ca On September 4th, 144 business professionals hit the fairways of the beautiful Riverway Golf Course for the annual Burnaby Board of Trade (BBOT) Golf Tournament. Players enjoyed a buffet lunch and dinner, participated in fun sponsor activities and contests on every hole, and won great prizes, all while raising money for the Down Syndrome Research Foundation, the partner charity of this year’s tournament. Over $10,000 was raised for the Down Syndrome Research Foundation through the sale of raffle tickets, 50/50 tickets, Players Packs and other items, plus a matching donation of $5000 made by Scotiabank. “We hold this tournament every year, and it’s always one of the biggest highlights of our event calendar,” remarked BBOT President and CEO Paul Holden. “Of course everyone always has a lot of fun out on the links, but being able to raise funds for very important causes like the Down Syndrome Research Foundation is what really makes the day special. It’s a big part of what our business community is about and we expect to continue doing it for a very long time.” The Burnaby Board of Trade thanks all the players, volunteers and sponsors who made this year’s tournament a success. See the photo gallery at bbotgallery.imgur.com.!

When Edison was born after a traumatic labour and delivery, he was diagnosed with Down syndrome: a genetic condition caused by an extra 21st chromosome, characterized by health problems, developmental delays and learning disabilities. Edison also experienced seizures, sensory integration problems and anxiety, leading doctors to speculate he might never walk or talk. At the Down Syndrome Research Foundation (DSRF), Edison and his family have found the support they needed to unleash his full potential. Now 7-years-old, Edison has far surpassed his early pessimistic prognosis. He talks like a chatterbox, attends school, takes piano lessons, plays soccer and reads at a Grade 1 level. Every day, stories like Edison’s are written

at DSRF. Individuals with Down syndrome have tremendous potential, and through DSRF’s research and customized educational programming, that potential is unleashed. DSRF’s programs are based on a growing understanding of the unique learning styles of individuals with Down syndrome, which enables programs to be tailored to meet the needs of each student. The programs focus on speech and language, reading and communication, and social and emotional development. As students grow in these areas, they begin to thrive in life, work and relationships. Funds raised through the 2013 BBOT Golf Tournament will be used for DSRF program development. See DSRF.org for more information.!

The Truth about Your Group Benefits: HOW EMPLOYEE GROUP INSURANCE PLANS ARE REALLY PRICED … Let’s face it insurance isn’t a favorite dinnertime conversation at most tables but it is a highly valued and sought after benefit for many people. We’re talking about Group Benefits. Employees value their health and dental plan above most other perks but is it really insurance? Or is it just a company savings account from which to draw from when needed? Employee benefits plans are comprised of two categories; Pooled Benefits and Experience Rated Benefits. The Pooled Benefits comprise of items like your Life Insurance, Long Term Disability, and Out of Country Travel. The Experience Rated benefits are your Health, Dental, Drugs, Vision and Short Term Disability. Your Pooled Benefits make up the small part of your monthly bill and will cover events that could be catastrophic in nature, such as when an employee(s) dies or becomes disabled. Your Experience Rated benefits make up the larger part of your monthly bill and cover those events that are more repetitive and predictable. For example, employees generally go to the dentist every 6 months for a check up and will renew their prescriptions every 90 days.

Inter-municipal licence to benefit Burnaby-based construction and trades-related businesses As of October 1, 2013, construction- and trades-related businesses based in Burnaby, New Westminster, Surrey, Delta, Richmond or Vancouver may be eligible for an Intermunicipal Business Licence. The licence will allow eligible businesses to work in all of these municipalities for a single fee, rather than obtaining additional non-resident licences for each municipality in which they operate outside of Burnaby. “Because our city is in the centre of the region, it is a great home base for contractors who work in many places,” says Mayor Derek Corrigan. “Thank you to the Burnaby Board of Trade for advancing this idea with Burnaby City Council. Council is

www.bbot.ca

Roundtable with Minister of State Kevin Sorenson, M.P. Unknown to most, insurers look at these two categories differently. For pooled benefits –the insurer ‘pools’ all their clients experience together to determine how much money they will need to pay all their life claims, LTD claims and other pooled benefits. When pricing your Experience Rated benefits, the insurer only looks at your company’s experience to calculate your price. In simple terms, after adding up all premiums and subtracting all your claims, the insurer assesses whether you left them enough to cover their profits and expenses. If you did not, the insurers view this deficit as if they just lent you money. Essentially they will put you on a payment plan over the next year in the form of higher premiums to cover your ‘debts.’ In many cases, the amount targeted to be left over with the insurers can be has high as 35%. This means that your company is, in effect, paying them $35 to pay out $75 in claims. When you are a small business, all it can take is one family using all of their annual dental allowance to increase the premiums for the entire group at renewal. The Chamber Plan is a unique program offered to Burnaby Board of Trade members that can put stability in your Employee Benefit Premiums. Whether your have 1 employee or 50, the Chamber Plan pools your firm together with 25,000 other Boards of Trade and Chambers of Commerce members across Canada. Under this kind of structure, your employees can use their plan however they want- without worrying about your company being singled out at renewal time. For more information, please feel free to contact Schmidt + Funk Financial Services, Burnaby Board of Trade’s exclusive providers of the Chamber of Commerce Group Benefits program or visit their website at www.schmidtandfunk.com.!

committed to making it easy to do business in Burnaby. We believe that this new intermunicipal business licence will streamline licensing processes and reduce costs for Burnaby construction- and trades-related businesses, helping them to be even more successful.” “We are very pleased that Burnaby construction- and trades-related businesses will now be able to enjoy the cost – and paperwork – savings that come from having a single business licence that allows them to work in six municipalities,” says Burnaby Board of Trade President and CEO, Paul Holden. “It is very satisfying to be able to fulfill a need that was identified by these businesses in our community. The Board looks forward to continuing to work with Burnaby businesses and the City to further simplify business processes, making it easier than ever to operate successful businesses here.” For further information on the new Inter-municipal Business Licence, contact Burnaby’s Business Licensing Office at 604.294.7320 or at licence@burnaby.ca – or visit www.burnaby.ca/IMBL.!

By Cory Redekop cory@bbot.ca On August 28th, the BBOT organized an executive roundtable discussion with the Honourable Kevin Sorenson, Minister of State (Finance). A dozen representatives from the BBOT membership, the Board of Directors, and the BBOT Government Relations Committee attended the roundtable which was hosted at the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown as part of the Minister’s first official trip to British Columbia since being appointed to the portfolio in July. Minister Sorenson provided insight about several new initiatives of the Government of Canada, including the recently announced Canada Jobs Grant program and the creation of Pooled Registered Pension Plans (PRPP). The Minister projected that the Canada Jobs Grant, currently in negotiation with the provinces, would transform how training is delivered in Canada and would address the growing skills gap in the country, and the Minister identified the new PRPPs as a crucial tool now available to help Canadians save for their retirement and to help small-to-medium

businesses offer an employee pension plan without the cost and regulatory burden of existing options. Paul Holden, BBOT President & CEO, provided the Minister with a detailed description of Burnaby’s economy and its key industries, and outlined some of the current initiatives and programs being undertaken by the BBOT and the local business community. A Question-and-Answer session with the Minster also provided attendees the opportunity to raise a host of issues with the Minister and provided a forum for the Burnaby business community to discuss key matters of concern.

The Burnaby Board of Trade is the leading business association in Burnaby, representing over 1000 local businesses, entrepreneurs and organizations. As part of its mandate, the Burnaby Board of Trade acts as the voice of the business community, advocating on its behalf and providing access to key decisionmakers at all levels of government.!

BBOT provides students with Access to the business community By Michael Keller michael@bbot.ca

Connector – as little as forty-five minutes – and it’s more efficient. At the end of the process students will have made meaningful connections with several senior business leaders rather than just one.” Among the highlights of the graduation/ orientation event were remarks from the program’s sponsors, a speech from Access graduate Renee Chau, and a brilliantly catered networking reception. The Access program is sponsored by three of the Lower Mainland’s largest educational institutions, Simon Fraser University, the British Columbia Institute of Technology and Douglas College. Connectors represent a myriad of Burnaby-based companies such as IBM, Electronic Arts and Pacific Blue Cross. Even the City is involved, with Mayor Derek Corrigan himself planning to participate once again as a Connector. The program runs from October to June. For information on becoming a Connector, or for sponsorship opportunities, visit www.accessprogram.ca.!

Students, Graduates and Connectors alike gathered at the Burnaby campus of Electronic Arts Canada on October 2nd to celebrate the conclusion of the inaugural session of the Burnaby Board of Trade’s Access Student Career Development Program. At the same time, they welcomed the new 2013/14 class. “It was a good experience having both our seasoned and new students under the same

roof to network and celebrate with each other,” remarked Burnaby Board of Trade (BBOT) CEO Paul Holden. “We had a chance to recognize the accomplishments of our graduates, while also having an opportunity to properly introduce our new students into the program and give them a real sense of what Access is all about.” The Access program was first launched last year to help senior post secondary students transition into the workplace and build meaningful relationships with leaders in the business community. The program includes three main components including networking events and workshops. The third component, Connectors, pairs students up with prominent business leaders for casual one-on-one informational meetings, and is the most unique aspect of Access according to Holden. “The Connectors program is really what sets Access apart from other professional development programs. It improves upon the traditional mentorship concept in two key ways: it’s less time consuming for the

From beginning to end By Renee Chau admin@bbot.ca With graduation comes the often dreaded question of “what are you going to do next?” In the last year of high school, we were applying for university. In the last year of university, we are now applying for jobs. Gone will be the days of studying for finals and stressing over papers. Rather than worrying about the bell curve and the miniscule difference between a B+ and an A-, the focus will be on receiving a paycheque and getting the next promotion. We have all realized to some extent that relying on education alone does not prepare us for what comes next. School teaches us the “what”, the theories and skills that are useful to survive. What it rarely teaches us is the “how”; how to get to a place where we can use the

“relying on education alone does not prepare us for what comes next” – RENEE CHAU –

skills, and how to actually use them. Most of us have taken on additional activities outside of courses such as clubs, co-op, internships, and competitions to gain experience and differentiate ourselves. Is it enough to get an interview? Maybe. Is it enough to guarantee a job? No. The reality is, there are a lot of unknowns and subjective decisions that are factored into an already complicated equation. A cover letter can be liked by one recruiter but not by another. There is on average one hour to convince the interviewer you are a perfect fit for their company. There might be a hundred other people applying for the same position. On top of all that, the current demand for a certain skill set and the overall state of the economy have a major impact on the outlook for new grads. Not everything has to be left up to chance though. There are many ways for grads-to-be to increase their chances at securing a job such as:

Leveraging relationships and networks: It is all about who you know. Sometime somewhere you could have met a person who can help you get to where you want to be. Build meaningful connections, and do not be afraid to reach out if you are looking at an opportunity you think they would be able to get you information about or open doors to. If you have a mentor, be sure to ask for advice and guidance on what opportunities are available and how to get them. Attending info sessions and networking events: Many companies host session on campus where the purpose is to meet students looking for jobs. Take advantage of each one to really get to know the company, understand what they are looking for, and to leave a good impression. Searching for graduate programs: Some companies have programs designed specifically to transition recent graduates into their workforce. These programs provide a good opportunity to learn more about the corporate environment and what internal opportunities are available with specialized training specifically for those positions. Considering start-ups: There is a growing trend for start-ups and small companies. Whether you decide to try your hand at starting your own or joining one that is up and coming, start-ups are a great opportunity to gain experience. There will be more chances to move up and work on challenging tasks earlier in your career with increased visibility of the company’s operations. Ask, ask, ask: Not all positions are advertised publically. If there is a particular company you really want to work for, reach out through your network and get in contact with someone inside to see if there is an opportunity coming up. Graduation signals an end to what seemed like a lifetime of education. Graduation also signals the beginning of what will be an endless number of opportunities. At the end of the day, the most important thing for us to remember is that we need to move forward with the attitude of making, taking, and demanding opportunities instead of expecting them to be given. There will be obstacles. There will be challenges. There always is. No one said it is going to be easy, but no one said it will be impossible either. There is life after graduation. What it ends up looking like depends on what we make it to be.! Renee Chau is a graduate of the Access Student Career Development Program. www.accessprogram.ca

Visualization can bring good changes HEALTHWISE

Dr. Davidicus Wong

C

hange is an unavoidable reality of life. Children grow up, and we all age. We suffer from losses, disease and accidents, and the unexpected happens. We change as the people around us change. We grow closer and further apart. Change might be welcomed. When people are unhappy and don’t know why or feel that they’re stuck in a rut, they may break off a relationship or quit their job though they may be no happier in the end. If our current circumstances are not great – we’re passing through a rough patch, we can look forward to them changing as well. As I comfort my patients with constipation and gas, this too shall pass. Check

We must accept the good with the bad and change itself, but we don’t have to take it lying down. We need not give up or simply wait for life to get better. We must accept also our personal responsibility and choice. How can we be agents of positive change? When confronted by problems, we can seek the positive. What can we do to rise above complacency, surrender and self-pity? How can we launch into action? What can we do with what we have? How can we make our lives and the lives of others better? The transformation of problems into goals can energize and empower us. Yet we must ensure that our actions are considered and deliberate and not short-term reactions. Visualization of your future self is a key to success. In clinical hypnosis, we engage the powerful subconscious mind with vivid imagery appealing to all the senses. Dr. Lee Pulos, a wellknown clinical psycholo-

gist and hypnotherapist, recommended an ecology check on our goals to ensure that it was not harmful in any way to others. Visualize yourself in the future. Where do you want to be in a year from now? In five years? in 10? At the end of life? How would you like to be remembered? When considering our short-term goals, we ought to consider our megagoals. If our short-term goals are unplanned and reactive, we will find ourselves far from where we want to be. If we don’t align our daily actions with our deepest values and our noblest calling, we may not realize the life we were meant to live. Many of us have considered the 100 places we’d like to see before we die, but a more significant list should include the top things we would like to do in life. What actions would bring you the greatest meaning and fulfilment? What can you say and what can you do to real-

The SCARIEST things a Home Inspector can find By Dale Trach

Major Defects in New Construction Water in a crawlspace in a new home, now that’s scary. Potentially, this leakage can reoccur in the future if not repaired correctly. This water, as it evaporates, creates ongoing high humidity in the home and it can support mould growth in attics and roof spaces when it condenses. Do It Yourself Structural Modifications In order to create more storage in the attic, a home owner cut engineered roof trusses, without a permit… and without adding any reinforcement.

A home inspector can encounter a lot of horrors in a day’s work. The job entails: ■ Conducting a visual, noninvasive examination of the condition of a home, most often in connection with the sale of that home ■ Inspecting all the accessible major

components which include the roof, exterior, structure, electrical, heating, air conditioning and heat pumps, insulation, plumbing and interior

Likely, the roof will sag in time, and possibly collapse during heavy snow or wind loads. Raw Sewage

■ Preparing and delivering to the client a written report of findings

Every time the toilet flushed, sewage entered the crawlspace through the missing clean-out cap. Nasty for the poor home inspector, never mind the new buyer.

These are some of a home inspector’s worst nightmares:

Multiple issues for the home owner: health, sanitation, odour and moisture.

energy efficiency,

When home owners converted from oil to natural gas furnaces, they simply left the buried oil tank in the ground. Problem is, some home owners did not pump the oil out of the tank.

■ Poorly standardized construction details with poor workmanship,

These metal tanks eventually corrode and the oil leaks out, contaminating the surrounding soil.We’ve all heard about the $150,000 clean-up bill. Scary to the pocketbook. Leaky Condo Syndrome Most Lower Mainlanders have heard this term or have had first-hand experience with their condos leaking. It’s cost many people a lot of money. The causes?

The scary part is that rainscreen technology, which is mandatory on newly constructed and remediated buildings, has been part of building science since the 1960s, but never adopted into the Canadian National Building Code. Mould The scary part: children and the elderly are most susceptible to continual exposure and possible long-term health effects. In extreme cases, mould can be toxic. Marijuana Grow-Ops Home inspectors see three types of grow-ops: ■ Busted by the police, where full disclosure is available to all parties

■ Greater wall wetting from buildings designed without roof overhangs plus exposed decks over living spaces,

■ Busted by landlords, with a superficial cover-up, not necessarily disclosed before selling

■ “Tighter” building envelopes in the name of

Obtaining home insurance can be difficult and may include additional costs. Substandard Home Owner or DIY Upgrades Home inspectors see additions, basement suites and general renovations with the associated unprofessional and often scary (i.e., dangerous) roofing, structural, electrical, plumbing and heating modifications. In extreme cases, the upgrades need to be partially or totally removed and redone. Rodents I often see signs of rodents in attics and crawlspaces. It’s scary thinking this carcass is decomposing so close to your food. Yuck!! – Courtesy of the Real Estate Weekly

Morrey family reaches to Infiniti in Burnaby

The Morrey Auto Group is expanding after 50 years, and the newest addition is bringing a touch of class to Burnaby. The family-owned company has announced it will open Morrey Infiniti of Burnaby next to its current Nissan dealership on Still Creek Avenue next spring. “We’re finally in an exciting market for luxury business being basically next to the downtown core market,” said Jason Morrey, general manager of Infiniti Coquitlam. “And our hopes are to add one more layer of product and luxury experience to our Morrey Auto Group clientele, as well as offering a high performance luxury vehicle to the Burnaby community.” The company decided to bring the brand to Burnaby after 20 years of success in Coquitlam, he said, and bought the Still Creek Avenue property five years ago

when it became clear it would be an ideal location for a new dealership. “We’re very excited because that corridor in Burnaby has become the focal point for luxury automotive in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, with the other brands on Boundary there, with BMW and Mercedes and Audi. So this is an excellent fit with adding the Infiniti brand to Burnaby there,” Morrey said. The company has been a Burnaby institution since Syd Morrey bought a dealership at Lougheed Highway and Willingdon Avenue in 1964. Today, three generations of Morreys work for the company, with six family members involved in the business, according to Jason Morrey. The family is celebrating 50 years in Burnaby next spring at a special grand opening event. The new dealership at 4450 Still Creek Ave. will include a six-car showroom, seven-bay service shop and luxury amenities, according to a press release.

It’s Central and Cariboo Hill in boys’ banner soccer final Tom Berridge sports editor

The only team to take a point away from league champion Burnaby Central will get another chance in the BurWest banner boys’ soccer final today (Wednesday). The Cariboo Hill Chargers upset league runner-up Moscrop Panthers 3-1 at Burnaby Lake Sports ComplexWest Monday to advance to the district final. Central kept its unbeaten streak intact, easily disposing of upstart Burnaby Mountain 5-0 in the other semifinal. The Chargers showed good structure in the midfield to start the game but needed the sound goalkeeping of Mankirat Grewal to ensure them the final result. Cariboo was rewarded with a 1-0 first-half lead after a scrambly first of two goals by Filip Janicijevic. Moscrop’s Jakub Vincalek tied the score in the second half with a one-time volley off a free kick. Janicijevic later tallied the gamewinner on a similar scramble that began with a corner and ended with a rebound goal off a shot at goal by captain Kirk Menezes. Manraj Sidhu clanged a shot off

The Clan club moved to 5-0 and first place in the premier women’s division with the win, setting up a highlight weekend matchup with unbeaten and defending fall cup champion Bayside in Surrey this Saturday. The SFU women’s team has been a side in the making, said scrum half and team captain Christina Burnham. “It’s all clicked,” Burnham said. “Our coach stresses a process and not an outcome.” To that end, the Clan women have been improving both as a team and individuals since the program regrouped six sea-

sons ago. Prop forward Demi Stamatokis, a former under-21 national team player, represented B.C. on the senior team this summer. STM also has five other provincial reps on the squad, including Laczney, who played for Saskatchewan. Amanda Foster and Shantel Hightower were also named to B.C.’s under20 team. SFU is led by seven-year starting fullback Megan Banford and standoff half Erin Grant, one of a threesister combination that includes forwards Lisa and Amy Grant. “We have a ton of pace in the backfield,” Burnham said, adding possession and discipline will be keys to getting the better of the strong Bayside forward pack this weekend. SFU is averaging more than 60 points per game so far this season.

practice two weeks ago that led to the team’s shutout loss to Tweedsmuir, Kully believes the win over Fox could be a season changer. “It just shows if we play to our potential we can play with anyone in the province. It restores the belief in self,” Kully said. STM takes on Mt. Boucherie at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-West on Friday at 4:30 p.m. For a video of the game go to the Burnaby NOW channel on YouTube.
