Maggots at work

Stefania Seccia staff reporter

There’s maggots in Burnaby Hospital, but don’t worry, they’re meant to be there. An antiquated and seemingly strange medical application of maggots for nonhealing wounds popularly used at Burnaby’s hospital is now becoming a product two private companies are trying to commercialize. Superna Life Sciences and Monarch Labs have applied for regu“Every now and latory approval then we get an to make Medical Maggots, a preescapee.” scription-only medical therapy LISA HEGLER nurse used to clean non-healing wounds. Lisa Hegler is a registered nurse and wound-care professional at Burnaby Hospital, and she spearheaded the maggot debridement therapy where she works, and says she’s benefited from using maggot therapy on more than 100 patients. “It’s an old way of doing things,” Hegler told the Burnaby NOW in a phone interview. “It dates right back to the Napoleon civil wars.”

Creepy-crawly healers: Registered nurse Lisa Hegler has led maggot therapy for non-healing wounds at Burnaby Hospital, where she works. Hegler hopes Health Canada will recognize the therapy as a valid medical treatment that she says is very successful. The therapy involves a sickly wound open to infection that is grey, green or brown, and two millimetre in length maggots. “They’re little larvae,” Hegler explained.

“Very, very tiny. It’s not what you see in the movies.” However, the maggots do get bigger after 48 hours in the wounds – growing up to 10 or 15 times in size.

“Wounds are painful to begin with,” Hegler added. “The 48-hour period can be uncomfortable.” Maggots Page 8

Advocate says slow process leading to tree cutting Stefania Seccia staff reporter

By January, Burnaby’s tree bylaw will have a bigger bark, but the two years it took to get to this point is worrying a local tree enthusiast. In 2011, local resident Donna Polos presented to council and called for stricter rules around cutting down trees in the city.

This past summer, the city came back with amendments, including bigger permit fees and guidelines around tree cutting. “I’ve been waiting two-and-a-half years,” Polos told the Burnaby NOW. “I wish it had been done in six months to a year. I kept phoning the city and asking city hall, and it was really frustrating.” Polos said since the summer, two properties near her home in South Burnaby

went on a tree-cutting rampage: one home cut down about 70 per cent of its tree, while the other cut down all of them. Polos speculates it was done to avoid the stiffer fines and process outlined in the bylaw amendments. “The thing is, my concern is when people caught wind of this whole thing – when city hall put out the changes to the bylaw – people were clear cutting,” she noted.

“I’m worried people are going to get wind of this now, and between now and January we’ll have a multitude of people taking them down.” Despite the wait, Polos said she’s happy with the changes being made. “I am very pleased with what they had proposed,” she added. “I’ve lived in this Bylaw Page 4

Police search for sexual assault suspect

City council is concerned what the backlash will be following an ambulance service shift in responding to different emergency calls. At its last meeting, Burnaby council rang the alarm over protocol changes to B.C. Ambulance Service’s resource allocation plan announced in late October. The major change is that more calls have been designated as rou-

tine and medically do not require a lights-and-siren response or first responder assistance. But ambulances will still attend every call. “Seventy different services that were previously code three, that’s lights and sirens and ambulance get there right now, have now been downgraded to code two, which is referred to as a cold response,” said Coun. Colleen Jordan. Calls for a suspected aortic aneurysm and abdominal pain are now considered code two, accord-

ing to a report from Burnaby’s fire chief Doug McDonald. “So 75 of those (services) have been downgraded, and so the ambulance service doesn’t have to go there, zoom, fast, lights and sirens, but the fire still does,” she noted. “Our people have to go. In speaking with the (fire) chief ... we already have some of our fire (services) sitting at a call waiting for an ambulance for more than an hour.” Jordan noted that while the fire-

fighters are waiting for an ambulance they may be missing other important emergency calls. “This is a horrible mess,” she added. “We’ll have to start tracking and making sure we have a log of what implications this is causing for the fire service, if it’s already starting to impact us and then have some kind of report from staff on what the implication can be. “I’m really frightened what it Ambulance Page 9

neighbourhood for over 40 years. Also, I have seen a lot of changes in the landscape, particularly in South Burnaby. If you fly over, there used to be a lot of trees in South Burnaby, but now you see them only in Central Park and Champlain Heights.” Since the summer, the city has had five information displays, and one ran for a month, which was visited by more than 200 people, according to a city report. The public opinion survey results rendered 158 responses, and 70 per cent supported the changes. The forthcoming changes include expanding the bylaw to include all private and public lands, properties going under development would require a permit to remove any tree 20 centimetres or greater in diameter and properties not undergoing development would need a permit to remove a conifer tree 30 cm or more in diameter and any broadleaf tree 45 cm or more. It would also increase permit fees $70 to $500 (for one- and two-family lots not under development) or $150 to $1,000 (for oneand two-family lots under development). At Monday night’s city council meeting, Coun. Sav Dhaliwal once again expressed his opposition to the bylaw amendments. “I find (them) a bit too onerous,” he said. “Particularly because the current existing bylaw is working reasonably well. I think it’s too restrictive.” At a delegation presented to council in late October, 40-year resident Walter Hallam called the tree bylaw changes restrictive and said they infringed on property owner rights. “In my observations, the canopy cover in Burnaby is no less now than five, 10, 20 or 40 years ago,” he said. “To yours and previous councils, great credit is due. Development over the years has been handled well.” At the Nov. 4 meeting, council approved the staff

Take aim, Burnaby. The city’s first Target is opening today. The doors are opening at 8 a.m. today (Wednesday, Nov. 13) at the new location at Metropolis at Metrotown, where the Zellers was previously. Customers planning to shop at the new store should be prepared – there could be a crowd, according to Joanne Elson, public relations manager for Target. “Wednesday will definitely, I think, be a very busy day,” she said in a phone interview with the NOW. “There’s typically a lot of excitement in the markets, so sometimes we experience lineups and stuff like that.” The Metropolis at Metrotown location will employ 280 people, according to

(including Christmas Cards and wrap)

Elson. It’s a large store, with 85,000 square feet of selling space, she added, and will include a pharmacy and a Starbucks. The store is one of 31 Target locations opening this week, with two more opening later in November, she said, with 124 Target locations in total across Canada. “We’re just really excited to be here and happy with all the work our team members have been putting into such a massive undertaking,” she added. “We’re so happy to have all of our stores open in time for the holidays.” There will be a number of holiday promotions coming up, Elson added. Target plans to open 150 stores in Canada by 2017, Elson said, and will make announcements soon regarding 2014 and beyond. See extended version of this story online at www.burnabynow.com.

All hugs aside, pipeline is in the NEB’s hands

OUR VIEW

Presto, the deal was back on – along with one of Clark’s treasured photo ops. We don’t know if Clark and Redford really are besties now or if they ever were the frenemies they appeared to be. But all of this lends credence to the cynics who predicted the “five conditions” were all just talk – with plenty of wiggle room. Neither premier actually has a veto in whether the pipeline gets approved. It’s the National Energy Board that

gets to decide whether the Northern Gateway will become a reality. And we really have to wonder if the NEB will approve a pipeline that the vast majority of B.C. citizens oppose. The biggest X-factors in all of this are still the dozens of First Nations who will have their territories bisected by a pipeline they are so far dead set against. We’d bet the Clark and Redford love-in will not be the end of the pipeline debate. Not by a long shot.

Too much talk, too little action IN MY OPINION

T

Keith Baldrey

he notion that aboriginal communities are like black holes when it comes to government funding was strengthened considerably with the release of the latest scathing report by B.C.’s Children and Youth Representative. Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond’s investigation of governmentfunded services for aboriginal youth was highly critical but not particularly shocking. Her main finding was that almost $70 million was given to aboriginal organizations over a dozen years without a shred of evidence that any of it was actually spent on services for young people. The money was, instead, largely used to pay people to go to meetings and conferences and to do a lot of talking. TurpelLafond’s report is entitled When Talk Trumped Service, and many people presumably made a lot of money talking about young people without helping them. She is characteristically blunt in her assessment of what she found, as in this: “There could not be a more confused, unstable

and bizarre area of public policy than that which guides aboriginal child and family services in B.C.” Or this: “This story may read more like fiction than truth, but the numbers speak for themselves. Nearly $66 million has been spent without any functional public policy framework, no meaningful financial or performance accountability, and without any actual children receiving additional services because of these expenditures.” No beating around the bush here. A fundamental problem she uncovered was the B.C. government’s decision to treat aboriginal-run care agencies on a “nation-to-nation” basis. As she points out, B.C. is not a “nation,” and neither are these agencies. The government opted to simply send “staggering expenditures” out the door to organizations that lacked resources or the expertise to fulfil service obligations. She found that nearly $35 million alone was spent “discussing” something called Regional Aboriginal Authorities. Essentially, a bunch of meetings were held and reports were done. But problems facing aboriginal youth – parental addiction, domestic violence, poverty, neglect, mental health, etc. – were not dealt with.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Regional oversight is needed Dear Editor:

Re: Too many cities, too much money, Burnaby NOW, Opinion, Nov. 8. With respect to Mr. Travis’s opinion piece, it is open for debate whether our elected officials are paid too handsomely for the work they do as part of Metro Vancouver or how much power this regional body of governance actually possesses. We do need to cooperate regionally on many issues including development, transit, policing, food security and so on. Sometimes the aspirations of the region and local municipalities will be at odds, and those are times when real leadership is needed. Last week, Delta city council approved the rezon-

ing of 530 acres of farmland near Boundary Bay and Beach Grove to build 950 homes and approximately 80,000 square feet of commercial space. This was done despite intense opposition from local residents. It was also done knowing that the region has designated the area in question as a green zone. Consequently, the final decision rests with Metro Vancouver’s regional planning and agriculture committee, which is chaired by Mayor Derek Corrigan. The voting on this committee is weighted, so larger municipalities like Burnaby have more influence on decisions than smaller ones. I hope the mayor uses his votes and influence to stand up for the local residents of Delta who were ignored by their council. The need of the region

First Nations: Report reveals lack of accountability in federal funding continued from page 6

But why this report is not particularly shocking is that this disconnected relationship between governments of various levels and First Nations is evident in other areas. The lack of accountability, the maddening pace of improvements and a political cautiousness are ingrained in the relationship. For instance, billions of dollars have been spent on treaty negotiations, with precious little to show for all that spending. Again, lawyers and consultants and bands make money via governments but can’t point to many accomplishments. The aboriginal communities receive huge amounts of government funding, yet many of their members are mired in a state of chronic poverty. Health outcomes among aboriginal people are among the worst in the country. There is a tendency

among governments to simply write large cheques for aboriginal groups, as if that assuages any guilt that stems from taking vast tracts of their ancestral lands away from them. There is little followup to ensure money is spent properly or in ways that actually improve things. But the First Nations must share in the responsibility for this situation. First Nations themselves insist on being treated as quasi-independent nations capable of managing their own affairs, albeit with significant amounts of government funding. Some can and do just that, but in many instances there is a complete failure of leadership among their leaders. And so we are left with scandalous findings like those uncovered by Turpel-Lafond. She talks about the need to stop directing money into “the big theoretical fixes” and concentrate more on the front-line services.

As she points out, those front-line services have suffered because so much money was rerouted from them in favour of all those meetings and discussions. There have been many troubling and outrageous reports on various government entities over the years, but this one has to rank as one of the most outrageous. I’m told things have improved on this front in the last couple of years, and I hope that’s true. But I have a hard believing the basic system of handing government funding over with no accountability or followup will change in any significant way. Hopefully I will be proven wrong, but given the shameful history of the treatment of First Nations by governments and by some of their own leaders, I’m not betting on it.

Since 2010 there has been a growing awareness among provincial, territorial and federal finance ministers that Canadians are facing a pension crisis. Far too many of us are unable to put enough money aside, either in pension plans or savings, and, as a result, face the prospect of a bleak retirement. The good news is that this situation can be corrected by enhancing Canada Pension Plan benefits, the cost of which would be a modest increase in both employer and employee contribution rates. The bad news is that Canadian employers, led by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, has mounted a strong campaign against the proposal on the grounds that the “fragile” economy can not support a rate increase. Unfortunately that view has prevailed with some politicians, particularly at the federal level, and the proposal has been left languishing on the table for the last three years. The matter will be revisited this December at the federal-provincial ministers annual meeting. And guess what? The federation is still singing the same refrain.

to protect the sensitive environment of Boundary Bay and the need for local food security should not be trumped by a wealthy developer and a council that is acting against the interests and the agreed upon plans of the region.

It is predicting that raising the employer CPP “payroll tax” by as little as 1.5 per cent will have a negative impact on job growth as well as depress wages. Moreover, it is advancing the argument that employees themselves can ill afford a matching 1.5 per cent increase. In the first place, it is misleading to represent CPP contributions as a “payroll tax.” Both employer and employee pension contributions represent a portion of earned wages and are more properly described as salary set aside (or deferred) for payment at a future date in the form of pension income. So, for the record, this is not about increasing taxes. It’s about employers participating in a plan to provide an affordable retirement for their employees. Secondly, it seems to me that arguing that today’s employees cannot afford to contribute more of their earnings to CPP is a tacit admission that wages are already depressed. Will the federation agree to support raising the minimum wage laws to help correct this inequity? Or lobby for a general wage hike so everyone will have more money to put towards retirement? Of course not. Its mandate is to keep employer costs down, not increase them. In fact, it can be expected that when it comes to labour costs the federation will continue to pursue a race to the bottom philosophy. So let’s recognize the self-serving nature of its position on CPP enhancement and give it the short shrift it deserves. And let’s hope this is exactly what the finance ministers of this country will do when they sit down together next month.

have signed, wanting to get maggots here in B.C. There are quite a number of clinics in the Lower Mainland that do maggot … therapy.” Burnaby Hospital has been identified as a pioneer behind the therapy by Monarch Labs, but it will not receive a royalty from any sales because it did not participate in the medicine’s production. “Canadian patients live in one of the few developed countries that still do not have access to approved medicinal maggots,” said Dr. Ron Sherman, lab director and co-founder of Monarch Labs, in a media release. Vancouver-based Monarch was founded in 2005 and is also developing new products including leech therapy for venous congestion, and fecal microbiota transplantation for C. difficile infections.

The wound is given special dressings to help reinforce a caged dressing, to ensure the maggots don’t leave that specific area. “Every now and then we get an escapee,” Hegler noted. “But we have nurses who closely monitor the integrity of the dressing and kill the escapee. What do you do when a mosquito lands on you? You smush it. It’s the same.” After one or more sessions with the maggots, the wound goes back to a pink or a red colouring, which means it will heal normally, according to Hegler. Despite the success Hegler says she’s experienced, Health Canada has yet to approve the therapy, but Burnaby is able to use it under the special access program law. Hegler said Health Canada needed more data behind the therapy, noting the government is now willing to read the literature behind it. The two categories it can fall under is medicine or a medical device. “That’s where part of the struggle is,” she noted. “We would like to say it’s a medical device. I have lots of petitions people

means for us as a city, but also what it means for people who want care.” Coun. Paul McDonell, a former deputy fire chief, said the decision “came out of the blue.” He agreed that it will impact the city’s fire service. “There’s also a statement made by the B.C. Ambulance Service that this will save them 30 per cent on their budget,” he added. “So, follow the money. What they’re doing is they’re going to balance this budget, the provincial budget, and the cuts are coming. This is just the first wave of them in health care.” Mayor Derek Corrigan said he was also concerned over the potential for people in crisis to be left waiting. “If the provincial government wants to talk about efficiency and wants to work with us … the door is always open,” he said. “But this isn’t a matter of anyone having a discussion with us.” But the changes are meant to increase the number of routine calls, according to B.C. Emergency Health Services spokesperson Kelsie Carwithen. “It is very important to note that we will not be making changes to first responder notification …

without further consultation with first responders over the next month,” she said in an email to the NOW. The decision to change the resource allocation plan came out of a review that happens regularly, and changes are based on medical evidence. In this case, physicians and a working group reviewed 630,000 patient records. “The review showed that it is not medically necessary (and, therefore, not an effective use of their resources and portion of the municipal budget) for first responders to attend some calls as in the past,” she said. “However, they will still be providing other non-medical services like extraction and jaws of life, etc.” Carwithen stressed that the decision is not a costsaving measure because an ambulance will still attend every call. “This is simply a way to ensure that we are keeping the public, patients, paramedics safe by reducing the mode of the response. (For example), code three response (driving fast) versus routine (driving the speed limit).” Any further changes to the plan will not be done without consultation, Carwithen noted.

Giving back with the Xmas bureau

Woman dedicates Legion’s donations to Christmas Bureau, decades after someone helped her family Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

For Barb Walter Venne, Christmas giving has come full circle. The Vancouver resident has a childhood memory of someone helping her family during the holidays. “My mom had become a single parent. There were two Christmases where somebody brought a box of goodies to us, and I obviously never forgot that,” she recalls. She can’t remember who that person was, but she does recall the impact the gesture had on her as a child. “It just felt like a little bit BURNABY of extra COMMUNITY SERVICES Christmas. BURNABY CHRISTMAS BUREAU It was really exciting to get this box, and there were things in there that my mom would not buy. It was special,” she says. Decades later, as the second vice-president of the Royal Canadian Legion’s Branch No. 44, Walter Venne oversees the thousands of dollars the group donates to community causes every year. And each Christmas, Walter Venne makes sure the Burnaby Christmas Bureau is on the list of recipients. The bureau, facilitated by Burnaby Community Services, makes sure children from low-income families have toys under the tree for the holidays and seniors are provided with hampers of food and gifts. This year, Walter Venne signed the Legion up to sponsor three local seniors. Once the bureau matches her with the seniors, Walter Venne is responsible for calling them to find out their food preferences and wishes for Christmas. (The Christmas Bureau recommends spending $100 per person, or $200 per couple.) Last year, she filled the hampers with fruit, nuts, gloves, socks, chocolate, and gift certificates to Starbucks and a grocery store.

Jason Lang/burnaby now

Giving spirit: Barb Walter Venne remembers the kindness someone showed her family at Christmas years ago, and now she donates on behalf of the Legion to the Burnaby Christmas Bureau.

“It’s wonderful. I love doing the shopping, it’s really fun for me, and I really put a lot of time and thought into it,” she says. Walter Venne also delivers the hampers a few days before Christmas, and the seniors are always happy and grateful. “It’s really a big deal for these people, and a lot of them feel alone, and when something like this comes it’s really heartwarming,” she says. For Walter Venne, she’s passing on the Christmas kindness someone shared with

her family, years ago. “It’s really great to know that there’s someone out there thinking about you and the tough time you might be having,” she says. “Now, with my position at the Legion and being in charge of community donations, I have that ability to give back as well.” Last year, the Burnaby Christmas Bureau helped 75 seniors. “This year we hope to do more, but it’s not always easy to connect with those seniors most in need,” says Stephen

D’Souza, executive director at Burnaby Community Services. “They are oftentimes feeling isolated and alone. So, we are asking the community to help us reach out to your neighbours, the elderly couple down the street, to any seniors who you think might be able to use a little extra Christmas cheer this year. Let them know we are here to help.” To sponsor a local seniors or family this Christmas,gotowww.burnabycommunity connections.com or call 604-299-5778. jmoreau@burnabynow.com

Local students help food bank on Halloween CLASS ACT

Jennifer Moreau

B

urnaby resident Peter Cech sent us a note about local elementary students who decided to turn their

trick-or-treating opportunity into a philanthropic endeavor. The leadership club at Confederation Park Elementary spent Oct. 31 collecting donations for the food bank. The students delivered notices to homes on three different blocks in the Heights neighbourhood, alerting people that they would be collecting non-perishable items for

the food bank, instead of candy for themselves. Cech said the response was overwhelming, and the students collected roughly 215 items weighing 185 pounds.

Donations for dry grad sought

Parents of students at Burnaby Mountain Secondary are looking for

donations to help their kids raise money for an alcohol-free graduation party in 2014. The students have opted for a boat cruise, and the parent committee is seeking items for prizes in their raffle draw. The raffle ticket sales will help fund the boat cruise. The parents are also looking for local businesses to donate goods, cash or services (think gift cards,

experience packages or coupons), and the committee can issue tax receipts for $20 or more. To help the cause and support student sobriety, email bmssdrygrad2014@ gmail.com.

Pizza partnership

Forest Grove Elementary has partnered with a nearby pizza restaurant to raise money for the

school’s garden program. The program, which has been running for roughly three years at Forest Grove, teaches kids about seeds and how to grow their own food and cook it. Restaurant owner Zakir Somani has a son in Grade 5 who attends Forest Grove. “I saw the kids working in the garden,” said

Growing partnership: Students in Forest Grove Elementary’s gardening program are contributing garlic and oregano to a neighbourhood pizza restaurant.

Somani, who owns Canadian Pizza Plus. “I came up with this little idea: If I could get (food) from them, and in return, give it back to the community, that would be a wonderful idea.” As part of the pizza partnership, parents with children attending Forest Grove should have received a membership card from the school. For every menu item sold at the local restaurant, 10 per cent of the price will go to the garden program,

as long as the parents show their card or mention it on the phone for takeout orders. “All these parents, they are always ordering from us,” Somani said. “It’s a cashless donation, without any effort, parents are automatically giving.” The family-run restaurant is also using garlic and oregano from the students’ garden, and Somani’s mother makes the pizza sauce. “It comes from the garden, from the sweat of the little kids,” he added,

laughing. Forest Grove students can also sign up to learn how to make a pizza at Canadian Pizza Plus. If any parent did not receive a card, there are more available at the restaurant. Canadian Pizza Plus is at 8650 Cinnamon Dr. ◆ Do you have some interesting news about schools or local students to share with the community?

Christmas single

A local singer is part of a new Christmas single. Burnaby native Jordan Alexander is one of 12 alumni from the Spectra Talent Contest who recorded If You’re Not Here At Christmas – described as “a Canadian song that pays tribute to the loved ones we can’t spend the holidays with due to death, estrangement, other commitments, or physical distance.” The Toronto-based Spectra Talent Contest is an eight-part TV series for emerging singers, with the top winner having a chance to record a single. Ralph Hammelman, Spectra’s executive director, said the depth of the talent in the annual contest is “mind-blowing.” “So I’d like to make these group recordings an annual tradition and share this opportunity with as many singers as possible,” he said in a press release. Profits from the recording benefit Spectra’s parent company, the Rainbow Association of Canadian Artists, a non-profit organization with a mission to celebrate diversity in musical expression.

Six-year-old Keian Blundell became the second youngster to join the ranks of the Mounties, and to make it all official, the RCMP presented the youngster with a custommade red serge. “It’s really heartwarming and gives (you) that sense of community and family that extends beyond blood ties,” said Ryan Blundell, Keian’s father. Keian was diagnosed with leukemia in 2012 and since then has been in and out of hospital for chemotherapy treatments, bone marrow transplants and radiation. As a way of brightening the spirits of the brave boy, family friend and RCMP cadet Mark Peterse suggested the Mounties do something special for Keian. Earlier this year, the RCMP named 13-year-old Casey Wright an honorary Staff Sergeant Major. Casey, whose father is a staff photographer

at the NOW newspaper, was the guest of honour at the RCMP’s musical ride performance in Burnaby, and as the guest of honour he was given a custom-made red serge. Peterse, a family friend of the Blundells, saw the story on Wright while he was training with the RCMP in Regina and asked his instructor if they could do something similar for Keian. The RCMP agreed, and a plan was set into motion to have an old red serge fitted for Keian. “I was absolutely floored. It was a complete surprise,” Blundell said about learning Keian was going to get a red serge. Last week, Keian and his family – on their way to an appointment – drove by RCMP headquarters. As they passed the office, Keian turned to his parents and said one day he’d like to meet an RCMP officer. “Obviously we didn’t know this was going to happen, so it was just funny how it worked out,” Blundell said. Burnaby RCMP’s Staff Sgt. Maj.

John Buis delivered the custom-made red serge to Keian on the morning of Oct. 31. As his father predicted, the young boy was overwhelmed by the surprised. “I love seeing that smile. It’s like that quiet, reserved (smile), and you can just tell he’s about to burst with excitement,” Blundell said. Keian received his red serge along with a blue gym bag – handed out to all RCMP cadets when they begin training in Regina. As an honorary member of Troop 15 – the same troop as Peterse – the six-year-old is now the second Lower Mainland youngster to join the ranks of honorary RCMP. “It makes you really remember how much humanity looks out for each other,” Blundell said. “A lot of people might feel alone in the world – especially in this situation, … dealing with kids with cancer – but just the fact that absolute strangers are able to reach out for the sake of just helping or bringing a smile to someone’s face.”

Heartburn Reflux

By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

We should eat more alkaline food. We all know that swimming pools can only work if they are acidic/alkaline neutral. This is still more critical for our body. Basic information to have an alkaline body: USDA now recommended on their website. MY plate.gov 50% should be alkaline food (vegetables, salads, legumes, fruit, berries, mushrooms) 50% can be acidic food (Meat, fish, shellfish, eggs, rice, nuts, cheese. Less or no bread, noodles, cereals, cakes. No sweets, deep frieds.) Most North American diet is 90% acidic food. If you have trouble to achieve at least a 50% in alkaline food and 50% acidic food, consider to take a supplement like Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s #39 inexpensive and comes with a guarantee. It helps to have a healthy alkaline balanced body and prevents many discomforts, including indigestion and stomach acid reflux coming up, which a majority of people suffer with. 60 million in North America. We should not ignore that Dr. Otto Warburg M.D. was awarded 2 Nobel Prizes for proving that an alkaline balanced body can absorb up to 20 times more oxygen than an acidic body. Makes our immune system more effective to fight disease-producing bacteria including cancer cells we have in our body every day of our life.! Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC ! Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief with noside effects and no antacids needed anymore. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA ! Very happy with acid reflux relief. Last 4 years had increasing reflux despite taking antacid products. Grzegorz Smirnow, 43, Mt. Prospect, IL

Supreme Immune Booster !Immune system for life ! I have been taking the Bell Supreme Immune Booster #52

for two years. I am amazed and delighted how it has strengthened my immune system. I do not get colds or flus anymore. I am taking this supplement every day. Like a miracle it strengthens my whole defense system against all attacks of bacteria, viruses and cancers that our body has to get rid of if we want to stay healthy.John Grace, 52, Broomall, PA! I was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer. I had to complete 6 rounds of chemo. The Bell Supreme Immune Booster#52 helped me to keep White Blood cell count elevated during the treatment. By using #52 my white blood cells were above the normal range. The nurses were completely amazed as the WBC count blew off the charts. Deborah Hailey-Glass, 44, Richmond,VA. !White blood cells increased to 8.6. I have lymphocyte depleted hodgkins lymphoma. After each session of chemotherapy my white blood cell count would not return to a healthy level (4-10 is healthy). My count was .2, #52 NPN 80044236 .3 etc. After using your Bell#52 my white blood cells count went to 3.0, 2.6 and 8.6. In other words good enough for me to enjoy life. Thanks Bell.

Dear Tom and Ray: About once a week, my boyfriend and I drive to a nearby city, about 150 miles round trip. When we go together, he drives my Toyota Yaris. He insists on shutting off the engine at EVERY

stoplight, which he says improves gas mileage. I say it’s dangerous; it’s going to require a new starter sooner rather than later; and it upsets the drivers behind him as they wait for him to start up the car when the light turns green. So, does shutting off the engine at stoplights improve gas mileage, and is it worth it? – Terry TOM: Yes, and probably not. It certainly does save fuel when you turn off the engine at stoplights. That’s why hybrids and newer cars are coming equipped with automatic “stop/

TOM: So why isn’t your mileage better when your boyfriend drives, then? Probably because he’s got a lead foot the rest of the time. He likely accelerates harder than you do, and drives faster. And that’s costing you more in mileage than he’s saving by shutting down the engine

We used to hear people cite the myth that it takes more fuel to restart the car than it does to keep it running while you’re waiting at a light. That’s nonsense.

Shutting a car off at stops isn’t fuel-efficient a store, or when you get stuck while one of those six-mile-long freight trains crosses in front of you. TOM: And suggest to your boyfriend that he go a little lighter on the pedal. Going 65 instead of 70 or 75 will save quite a bit of fuel, as will accelerating gently away from stoplights. RAY: Because if his real goal were to save fuel rather than annoy you and the people in cars behind him, the proof would be in the mileage numbers. And he’s not making his case.

Central to B.C.s, Cariboo out on PKs Tom Berridge sports editor

Vuk Erbez made good on Burnaby Central’s last chance at a B.C. high school berth into the AAA boys’ soccer championships. Erbez assisted on two goals by Wildcats’ teammate Parker Ellis and also scored off a second-half free kick to lead Burnaby Central to a 3-0 victory over Handsworth in the North Shore/BurWest zone provincial qualifying match last Thursday. Earlier last week, Central lost 21 to Sutherland for the No. 1 zone berth into the upcoming B.C. high school championships in Burnaby Nov. 21 to 23. “(Central) realized they missed an opportunity,” said Wildcats head coach Anto Steko. “I saw it in their faces, they really, really wanted to play.” Ellis gave the Burnaby league champs a 1-0 lead in the first half on a goal set up on a Erbez steal in the midfield. Ellis received the ball from his teammate and deked the Handsworth keeper, slotting the ball into the net from a tough angle. The North Shore runner-up came out in the second half and took the play to Central, but with just seven minutes left in the contest Ellis took a ball from Erbez and scored from just inside the 18-yard box. Erbez capped the win with a classic free kick from outside the box, putting the ball past the defensive player wall and into the bottom corner. “It’s the worst part trying to weather a 1-0 game. I think they realized that, and took the advantage,” Steko added. Trevor Hughes recorded the shutout in goal from the ’Cats. In Burnaby, BNW runnerup Cariboo Hill Chargers were unlucky following a 3-2 shutout loss to St. Thomas Aquinas in a AA boys’ soccer qualifier at Cariboo Oval on Thursday. The arguably more skilled Chargers were victimized on two

long goal-scoring shots on goal but battled back on both occasions to equalize, but they could not manage to put the go-ahead goal past STA keeper Sam MacDonald. The High Performance League Fusion FC keeper made a number of key stops and also had some luck on his side to record the win. But in the shootout, it was all MacDonald, making huge stops on Kirk Menezes and Scott Duncan to help the North Shore independent

school to a 3-1 advantage on penatly kicks. David Genet tied the contest 2-2 late in the second half on a pretty play, taking a short pass on his left foot and firing a low shot past the STA keeper from 20 yards out. With Cariboo pressing, Menezes just missed the goal with a low, hard strike. Alberto Pincelli also had a couple of fine crosses go wanting,

including a ball to Manraj Sidhu that wound up in a red card to the Charger player, despite the appearance of a possible foul by a North Shore defender. Down a man, Cariboo’s Duncan had a header off a long free kick by Menezes, glance off both the post and crossbar from close range in the dying moments of the match.

Tackling will be key to stopping Mt. Doug Tom Berridge

The St. Thomas More Knights will need their stoppers and more when they face the No. 1-ranked Mt. Douglas Rams in B.C. AAA varsity football this week. The Knights put up big defensive numbers following a 35-21 win over Belmont in the first round of the varsity football playoffs at Burnaby Lake

Moscrop wins first Tier II grid title

Sports Complex-West last Friday. STM’s Drew Belgrave made a dozen individual tackles, and had a fumble recovery for a touchdown, while free safety Anthony Carteri added 11 stops to slow down the Belmont running attack. On the offensive side of the ball, STM quarterback Malcolm Lee rushed for 193 yards and three touchdowns. Shane Noel also rushed

for more than 100 yards and a score, while Andrew Flett had 84 yards on the ground and one TD. Early in the second half, Belmont appeared to have tied the game 13-13 on a short run, but the play was ruled no touchdown on what appeared to be an apparent error on the part of the line official. Following the ensuing turnover on downs, Lee engineered a 98-yard scoring drive, including a 60-

yard run that increased STM’s lead to 21-7. “Our offence did a great job of putting up points fast, and our defence did a good job of getting good field position,” said Belgrave, who picked up a fumble in the Belmont backfield in the final quarter and raced into the end zone from 30 yards out to make the score 35-14 for the Knights. But Belgrave is under no illusions about what it

will take to stop offensive MVP Marcus Davis and the No. 1 Rams. “Open field tackling will be the difference,” said Belgrave. “Man on man, you can’t beat their offensive line. We have to outsmart them on defence. “If we can cause turnovers, we can win the game.” The Knights must travel to Victoria for a Friday matchup with the defending B.C. champion Rams.

The Moscrop Panthers capped an undefeated B.C. high school football season, winning their first-ever provincial Tier II title. The Panthers ran away from Howe Sound in the opening half en route to a 34-6 victory over Howe Sound in the championship final at Burnaby Sports Complex-West on Friday. “I’m just so excited for the guys,” said Moscrop head coach Craig Bymoen. “We set some goals this year. It was about finishing each and every play as well as we could and let the scoreboard take care of itself. “I was happy they met those challenges and they worked out.” Hamed Ghias scored two rushing touchdowns in the first half, while Andrew Jones tallied his first of two scores on a 35-yard pitch pass from Abdinasir Abdi with just five seconds left in the second quarter. Andrew Johnson also tallied, keeping possession of the ball off the back of a prone Howe Sound defender on a 15-yard toss from Panthers’ quarterback Ari Ali into the end zone for what turned out to be the game-winning score. The win was Moscrop’s first provincial grid title and second trip to a Tier II final. In 2009, the Panthers lost to Timberline in the championship game. Earlier this season, the Panthers also defeated Argyle’s AA football team 35-7 in an exhibition match. But moving up to AA ball isn’t in Moscrop’s future plans, said Bymoen, owing to traditionally low turnout numbers and the lack of minor feeder programs. This season Moscrop put together a winning season with just 27 players, including six juniors. “It was more about stepping back and watching their happiness and how it unfolded,” said Bymoen of the win. “We’re trying to build football into something boys want to play at Moscrop.”

CROSS-COUNTRY

Four women named all-region in NCAA national qualifier Lindsey Butterworth led the Simon Fraser University women to the upcoming NCAA Division II crosscountry championships. The Clan senior ran with the lead pack, finishing fourth overall in the women’s six-kilometre final in a time of 22:03. Butterworth’s finish, along with three of her teammates, Kirstin Allen, Kansas Mackenzie and freshman Rebecca Bassett, all earned West region all-team honours after the Clan’s third-place finish in Spokane. Bassett finished 16th overall in a time of 22:41, Mackenzie and Allen placed 20th and 25th, respectively. Emma Chadsey rounded out the SFU team scoring with a 29th-place finish. “It was a great performance, exactly what we wanted,” said Clan head

coach Brit Townsend in a prepared release. “I’m really proud of the girls. They were determined to make up for last year and there was no doubt that we were one of the top teams.” SFU finished just behind winner Alaska Anchorage and runner-up Chico State. Clan freshman Oliver Jorgensen was also selected to the all-region team, following an 18th-place finish with a time of 32:32 in the men’s 10km. Jorgensen missed qualifying for one of the three available individual berths to the nationals by just five seconds. The SFU men, including Cameron Proceviat of Burnaby, Brendan Wong, James Young and Austin Trapp, improved as a team by three places from last year with a 10th-place finish.

Proceviat placed 37th with a 33:12 clocking. Wong was next best at 34:02, good enough for 53rd overall. Chico State won the men’s team title. Prior to the cross-country regionals, eight SFU runners were named to the conference all-academic team. Senior James Young was the only repeat winner with a 3.76 grade point average. Proceviat made the squad with a 3.73 GPA in molecular biology. Lorenzo Smith topped the men with a 4.22 GPA in biomedical physiology. Wong also earned a spot. Allen made the women’s roster for a third time with a 3.80 GPA in kinesiology. Peggy Noel, Emma Chadsey and Tanya Humeniuk also made the all-academic team in their first year of eligibility.

Genet had chances on Pincelli attacks. “I felt like we controlled the game more than they did. We played with more skill. We were just unlucky,” said Lucas Nadiu, who had to leave the field late in the game

following a hard tackle from behind. The B.C. high school championships will begin with the AA finals on Nov. 18 at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-West. The AAA tournament starts on Thursday, Nov. 21.
