City resident raises concerns about silty creek Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

A Burnaby man is raising concerns about silt runoff from an east Burnaby construction site and the impacts on Silver Creek, the salmon-bearing waterway that took a hit after the Jan. 11 coal train derailment. On Sunday, May 4, John Preissl was walking around Burnaby Lake when he noticed the waters of Silver Creek had turned a milky colour. “I knew exactly where it was com-

ing from,” he told the NOW. The 52year-old carpenter traced the discoloration upstream until he came to the site of an office development in the Production Way area, close to the headwaters of Silver Creek. According to Preissl, heavy rains are washing silt from the construction site into Silver Creek, and he has photos of the murky waters to back his case. He has also emailed the city about the issue before. Silt can be harmful because it causes breathing problems for fish and smothers their eggs. Meanwhile, local streamkeep-

ers have spent decades releasing tiny fry in Burnaby’s creeks and streams, trying to bolster the salmon numbers. Silver Creek’s headwaters are close to the construction site, but the creek flows underground from Eastlake Drive to Government Street and then feeds into Burnaby Lake. The NOW contacted Chris Ensing, an environmental services officer at the City of Burnaby and one of the people that investigates calls about spills in local waterways. It’s highly unlikely salmon could make

it through the underground passage to the upper reaches, but there may be isolated populations of fish in the headwaters, Ensing said. According to Ensing, the city was looking into a citrus-smelling chemical, possibly a cleaning agent, and silt in Silver Creek, reported by the crew cleaning up after the Jan. 11 train derailment, which left coal in the lower parts of Silver Creek. The city found the source, which was a business in the area, and spoke to people there, who agreed to make some changes. Creek Page 8

Burnaby RCMP honour second ‘young Mountie’


In a seemingly last ditch effort to keep the city from cleaning up the burnt out Globe Foundry in South Burnaby, city council approved a city manager’s report ordering the property owner to complete remedial action requirements on the site. The cleanup requirements

include obtaining all demolition permits and approvals, demolishing all buildings on the property and removing all demolition waste, building materials and refuse. The owners of the property, located at 7647 Willard St., have 30 days from the time they receive the report to complete the requirements, though they’ve yet to respond to numerous other letters sent by the city. If the owners do

not comply with this latest letter, the city will take over the cleanup and bill the owners, Last month, council authorized city staff to enter the premises of the abandoned foundry to bring it into compliance with Burnaby’s unsightly premises bylaw. The site mysteriously went up in flames in January and has since become a popular dumping ground, making it an eyesore for the community.

Since November, the city has received five separate complaints regarding the unsightliness of the property. The report asked council to declare all buildings on site “to be so dilapidated and unclean as to be offensive to the community.” The site has a history of issues, including WorkSafeBC violations, outstanding debts and two deaths in a trailer on the property in May 2013.

A Lower Mainland social services group is lobbying municipal governments to support the creation of a social policy framework in B.C. Caroline Bonesky, CEO of Family Services of Greater Vancouver, appeared before Burnaby city council as a delegation on Monday to ask for its support of a social policy framework resolution, to be put forward at the 2014 UBCM Convention in Whistler this fall.








Lively City


Today’s Drive





The resolution, crafted by the City of Duncan, calls on the B.C. Liberals to develop a framework by setting goals, priorities and values that will guide public policy to meet current and future social needs. “Social policy is an opportunity for the government of British Columbia to clearly articulate their responsibility and their roles on driving the agenda on how we meet some of increasing social challenges,” said Bonesky. “This isn’t about asking for more money – this is asking to spend the money that we do have wisely.”

Last year, the Alberta government approved a social policy framework, and similar initiatives were launched by the governments of Quebec, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. The framework would aim to address a variety of issues and social challenges, including income disparity, poor health, unemployment for people on disabilities, homelessness, domestic violence and addictions. It would also set targets for business, education, community services and other fields throughout the province.

RCMP investigate stabbing – victim remains in hospital Cayley Dobie staff reporter

A Burnaby man is recovering in hospital after he was stabbed several times in the back and buttocks. According to Staff Sgt. Maj. John Buis, Burnaby Mounties were called to an apartment in the 7100 block of Fulton Avenue around 11:15 p.m. on Sunday night following reports of a stabbing in the area. “We’re not sure exactly where it took place but we believe it was on Boundary Road because we received a call from the victim at his residence on Fulton,” Buis said. When officers arrived, they discovered a 52-year-old man suffering from multiple stab wounds to his back and buttocks.

The victim was taken to hospital where he remains. Buis said the injuries are not life threatening and the man is expected to make a full recovery. According to Buis, investigators do not believe the attack was random but rather that the victim knew his assailant. They are also trying to determine whether or not there is more than one suspect. “There’s a language barrier and we’re just trying to get everything worked out,” Buis added. “And we’re talking to the victim now.” Mounties are still in the preliminary stages of their investigation and are asking anyone who may have witnessed the attack or have information to contact either the Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).

Social: City will vote on request continued from page 3

“Some of the key pieces in there are about the increasing complex social challenges, as well as the number of people who play in this sphere,” said Bonesky. “We all work in very small parts of this … but we’re not co-ordinated. Somebody could have an initiative about seniors and health, but they’re not talking to anybody else about how that would impact them or not.”

Mayor Derek Corrigan said Alberta’s framework is a strong example for what B.C. could do with its own social policy. “It’s quite amazing to look at what Alberta has done,” he said. “The issues we’re facing are almost identical.” He added that the resolution is “perfectly consistent” with the city’s strategic plan for social policy, and that council would likely vote on a motion to support the resolution at the next council meeting, slated for May 26.

Pipeline questions: From terrorism to expropriation Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The City of Burnaby and local residents are raising a multitude of concerns about Kinder Morgan’s pipeline expansion plan, including earthquakes, terrorism, health impacts, property values, expropriation and schools. The deadline for the first round of information requests for the National Energy Board’s hearing passed Monday, May 12. The City of Burnaby filed one of the larger info requests, at 300 pages with an estimated 1,500 questions, and Mayor Derek Corrigan did not mince words when speaking about the proposal. “Each one of these questions about Kinder Morgan’s poorly planned proposal requires a considered, comprehensive

response,” he said in a media release. “These are critical questions that focus on the hundreds of ways in which Kinder Morgan’s proposed pipeline and tank farm would threaten our city’s safety, security and livability.” The city’s documents raise concerns about property values, earthquakes, terrorism or vandalism, health impacts, air quality, emergency response capabilities, IN BURNABY the tank farm expansion and its proximity to the Forest Grove community, among other items. The city, which has already come out against the pipeline, also threatened to withhold services, such as access to additional water or traffic adjustments during construction or emergencies.

“If Trans Mountain does not have social licence and consent from Burnaby, those services may not be made available,” the documents read. The Burnaby Teachers’ Association filed a one-page document with eight questions. The local branch of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation wants a guarantee that school property won’t be expropriated. The association also asked questions on how to handle emergencies, and how the pipeline expansion would reduce carbon emissions. Intervenor Angelika Hackett, a resident of an east Burnaby housing complex close to the proposed routes, raised concerns about bureaucracy, exporting bitumen to


China, jobs and potential environmental effects, among other things. Glen Porter, who sits on the city’s environmental committee, focused on the Burnaby Mountain storage tank facility, which is slated for expansion. Porter is concerned about how close the tank farm is to his housing co-op, and raised the spectre of spills in the Silver Creek water shed. Burnaby resident Danielle Vezina, whose Hastings Street home sits along one of the proposed routes, raised concerns about expropriation and property values and a real estate company that approached her about selling her home. “What is Kinder Morgan’s relationship to the developer?” she asked. (The NOW contacted the real estate company, which Pipeline Page 9

Site C plans face steep obstacles IN MY OPINION


Keith Baldrey

he issues that swirl around B.C.’s biggest-ever megaproject aren’t going away: jobs and a secure, “clean” energy supply versus environmental damage and ignoring some First Nations rights. Those were among the issues at play when the first huge hydroelectric dams were built on the Peace River in the 1960s, and they remain attached to the latest dam – Site C – envisioned for the same waterway today. The recent, mammoth (450page) report by a joint review panel flagged all those same issues but didn’t side one way or another on whether the dam should be built. There is a lot of on-the-one-hand-but-on-theother-hand reasoning in the report, which can be used by either side in the debate to bolster its arguments. But there is one big, important difference between the debate or legalities of today compared to the 1960s: the First Nations now have very real, court-upheld constitutional rights that weren’t a factor in the construction of the first dams,

but which could ultimately block Site C’s construction today. And the panel devoted more than 30 pages in its report addressing First Nations issues, an indication of the importance it attaches to how those interests must be weighed in the eventual decision for the project. The dam would have a “significant adverse effect” on local First Nations’ “traditional use” of the land, including hunting and trapping, the panel found. We’re not talking here about the court-mandated requirement to “consult and accommodate” First Nations that impact so many land use decisions. These rights run far deeper and are entrenched in section 35 of the Constitution. Further, the valley to be flooded by Site C encompasses Treaty 8 territory, which affects 21 different First Nations bands. Treaty 8 specifically gives those First Nations the right to “pursue their usual vocations of hunting, trapping and fishing throughout the tract” of land in question. So, unless the panel’s analysis and conclusions on this one issue are completely off the mark, the Site C dam seems to be facing one heck of a steep mountain to get over before construction could begin. As is so often the case, much of the controversy over Site C has focused on other issues over Site C Page 7

in some parts of North America and drought in others. On the West Coast, reduced snow pack, rising sea levels and ocean acidification, storm surges and forest infestations are just some of the challenges likely to get worse in the future. Those West Coast scallops you love? Kiss them goodbye soon as they are already unable to survive here as coastal waters become more acidic. The question remains, what are we willing to do about it? Despite

widespread acknowledgement of concern, Canada’s own efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions remain inadequate. Oil and gas production is one of our country’s largest contributors to the problem. Yet our government largely refuses to recognize this, much less move to mitigate it. As the report this week makes clear, however, the time to act is now. Because a dramatically altered planet will soon be everyone’s problem.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR School district doing a good job

Dear Editor:

As trustees of the Burnaby board of education, we felt compelled to write a response to Mr. Friesen’s and Ms. Ward’s letters to the editor of the Burnaby NOW (April 22 and 24 respectively), “Creativity could help to alleviate school cuts” and “Why aren’t kids in public schools?” Firstly, it should be noted that the statistics used in Ms. Ward’s letter are misleading. The school-age population is misrepresented as she includes 18year-olds in her calculations while school district data is based on five- to 17-year-olds. Further, her stated per pupil funding formula is very much oversimplified.

The real issue we wish to clarify is the simplistic suggestions stated by both Mr. Friesen and Ms. Ward that the Burnaby school district is eliminating programs and losing enrolment – that little is being done to attract students to Burnaby’s public schools. This is simply not true, and our enrolment statistics indicate that we are meeting the learning needs of our community – and then some. Our district has sustained enrolment, and we attract students to our schools by continually offering creative and innovative programs. These include Challenge Programs, sports academies, Mandarin language arts, international education and one of the strongest Advanced Placement programs in the country. We continue to lead the way – and, in Proud Page 7

fact, many families who don’t live in Burnaby choose Burnaby public schools for their children. While we try our very best to be all things to all people, we recognize that some families choose independent schools in Burnaby or schools outside of our district for reasons that are often beyond our control. These reasons include religious beliefs, ideology or specialty programs that meet their individual or desired needs. The Burnaby school district is an exemplary district. Our students, teachers and schools win awards locally, provincially, nationally and internationally. We are proud of the fact that: ! We have one of the largest AP programs in Canada – and two of our district schools (of 10 Canada-wide) were awarded the opportunity to offer the AP Capstone Diploma Program that will begin in the fall of 2014. ! Our rates of completion and transfer to post-secondary are well above the provincial average. ! We were one of the first districts to adopt programs for newborn to age five – and today 12 District StrongStart B.C. Early Learning Centres engage children, parents and caregivers. !

We offer a wide variety of programs including French immersion, Mandarin language arts, Challenge Programs, sports academies, online learning and career training options. Since 1906, Burnaby schools have

strived to provide the right mix of programs to best serve the learning needs of the city’s diverse and evolving population. Our programs will continue to expand as we identify needs, despite the fact that Burnaby receives the lowest per student funding in the province (again, contrary to Ms. Ward’s calculations). Public education means that every child is provided with an opportunity to learn and to reach their potential – and beyond. In Burnaby, we are proud that our schools do just that.

Is tree bylaw all politics?

Dear Editor:

Several neighbours in our South Burnaby community have become the unofficial tree police. We don’t trust that the city hall and council will enforce the tree bylaw. As houses are sold, we count the trees and watch what happens. We have learned that although the bylaw is law, they have not hired any new staff to implement it. We don’t consistently see fences around protected trees to save them from destruction. When we question why trees are removed, we are told that they are too close to construction or they are not healthy. This is a grey area, where I believe they are favouring the developer. The fact that the city allowed a grace period after the tree bylaw was implemented to allow residents and developers to remove trees, also confirms it. Is this just a ploy so Corrigan and his group give the appearance of being green to win the next election? Donna Polos, Burnaby

Site C: First Nations rights an issue continued from page 6

the years. For example, there are those who bemoan the potential loss of valuable agricultural land if Site C was built. The dam would indeed flood about 3,800 hectares of potential agricultureal land, but the panel found that would have an “insignificant” impact on crop production because the land isn’t terribly suited to high-end crop production. In fact, the annual loss in terms of crop production would amount to a measly $220,000. Opponents of Site C have also seized on the argument that it would greatly harm all kinds of wildlife and disrupt or destroy various migratory patterns. Not so, found the panel, at least when it came to moose, elk, deer or bears, the dominant

species in the region (however, some bird, bat and fish habitats would indeed be adversely affected). The panel expressed doubts about various arguments put forth by B.C. Hydro in advocating for the dam, on everything from cost estimates to the timeline for future energy needs. In fact, in its closing summary, the panel specifically concluded that B.C. Hydro had not made the case that Site C was needed in the near future. But the panel also acknowledged that B.C.’s energy needs will increase over time and therefore more power generation will be needed. The question is not “whether” a new power facility (Site C or some other one) should be built, but “when.” This conclusion alone is likely enough to convince

the B.C. Liberal government to give the project the green light when it ultimately makes its final decision this fall. But as with so many major land use decisions, the government may find that ultimately First Nations’ rights can thwart all kinds of political desires. Legendary Premier W.A.C. Bennett was able to dismiss all kinds of protests when he ordered those other dams to be built, and a government can continue to successfully ignore environmental and agricultural objections when it comes to things like dams. But ignoring First Nations’ rights? That’s a very different proposition, and even Wacky Bennett wouldn’t get away with that today. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Creek: Tracking down the source continued from page 1

(Ensing did not want to disclose the name of the business.) However, Ensing seemed unsure of linking Preissl’s silt reports to the construction site, until the NOW shared his photos with her. “Definitely the creek shouldn’t be looking like this, so something’s going on,” she said. “It may have come from that construction site.” Ensing said she would have her colleague look into the matter. The Eastlake construction site has barriers up to protect the creek from silt, but in heavy rains there can still be runoff, which poses risks for the fish downstream. “They need to be prepared, for these heavy rains because we live in a rainforest,” Ensing said. Ensing also recommended the public call the city immediately, at 604-294-7460, to report any spills in local creeks, rivers and streams. Environmental services officers need to be alerted as soon as possible by phone in order to track the spill to the source, and phone calls are better than emails, text messages and Tweets, she explained.

City man charged in New Westminster break in

A 41-year-old Burnaby man is facing break-and-enter charges following an incident at a New Westminster restaurant. On April 17, police were called to a restaurant at Columbia Square after receiving reports that an alarm was going off at the establishment. When officers arrived on scene, they found evidence a man had broken into the restaurant but the suspect had already fled, according to a press release from the New Westminster Police Department. The department’s forensic identification section was called to process the scene, and following their examination, officers were able to identify the suspect as Shane Harold Davidson, 41, of Burnaby, the release added. Davidson was arrested and has been charged with one count of break-and-enter. – By Cayley Dobie, staff reporter

Province wants answers on spills

Academic Excellence

With one of the largest AP Programs in Canada, Burnaby students are poised to succeed. The rates of completion and transfer to post-secondary are well above the provincial average. Annually, over $6 million in scholarships is awarded.

B.C.’s Environment Ministry wants Kinder Morgan to answer questions about oil spills on land and water. The ministry’s query is part of a flurry of activity, as intervenors filed information requests on Monday’s deadline for the pipeline’s National Energy Board hearing. “We are asking the company to provide more detail than is contained in their application so that we can continue our analysis of the extent to which they will deliver the world-class systems that we require,” said Environment Minister Mary Polak in a media release. The information request includes more than 70 questions about spill response planning and the company’s emergency management program. For example, the documents raised questions regarding in-situ burning in case of spills and the use of dispersants. The pipeline crosses 474 waterways, including the North Thompson and Fraser rivers. Kinder Morgan has until June 13 to respond, and the province will review the answers in preparation for the argument phase of the hearings, which start in February 2015. – Jennifer Moreau

The District’s Visual & Performing Arts program is the most comprehensive in BC. Dance is fostered through a district-wide Festival of Dance and instructors at each secondary school. Specialized music teachers in all schools set the stage for nationally acclaimed choirs and bands.

Pipeline: Questions raised

The District offers a wide variety of programs to support the needs of all learners. These include French immersion, Mandarin language arts, challenge programs, sports academies and online learning.

said the proposal had nothing to do with the pipeline.) Vezina also raised concerns about people’s ability to sell property. “No one wants to purchase a home that may have a pipeline running through it, or in close proximity to it,” she wrote. “The application is currently affecting our land value and our ability to put our house for sale if we so chose to.” Kinder Morgan has until June 13 to respond to the first round of information requests. The deadline to file for the second round is Sept. 11.

Leaders in Early Learning Early learning supports later academic success. Burnaby was one of the first districts to adopt programs for newborn to age five. Today, 12 district StrongStart BC Centres engage children, parents and caregivers in early learning.

‘Resilient’ local film industry on the mend Jacob Zinn staff reporter

Despite fears that the return to the provincial sales tax would kill the local film industry, Burnaby filmmakers haven’t seen much of a shortage of projects to date. Peter Leitch, president of Mammoth Studios in Burnaby and North Shore Studios in North Vancouver, said his studios have been busy with work recently, putting to bed some of the worst case scenarios that came up in 2013. “The industry’s been pretty resilient,” he said. “Things have picked up from over a year ago.” Last year, the B.C. government reverted from the harmonized sales tax back to PST and government sales tax, which raised concerns from members of the province’s film industry. Because the film industry in B.C. is not considered to be a manufacturing industry, filmmakers are not exempt from paying PST on items they purchase to produce movies. Furthermore, B.C. is the only province in which filmmakers pay PST, making it enticing for production companies to make movies elsewhere in the country. While the PST’s return hasn’t damaged the industry as badly as once thought, some local business leaders are cautious to accept that the PST won’t hurt the industry in the future. Mike Kaerne, president of film equipment company HollyNorth Production Supplies and a director of the Burnaby Board of Trade, said that a number of factors have offset the negative effects of the PST on the industry. He noted that the biggest difference is likely the strength of the U.S. dollar, which has allowed American production companies to still produce films affordably in B.C. “Although we added seven per cent as an additional cost, we’ve gained in budget because now $100,000 U.S. is like $110,000 Canadian,” he said. “It’s somewhat mitigated the effect.” Kaerne added that while the decision by the B.C. Liberals to reinstate the PST was an unpopular one for the industry, the re-election of the party actually indi-

Resilient: Mike Kaerne, owner of film supply company HollyNorth, says the local film industry isn’t doing as badly as predicted when the PST returned last year. He says numerous other factors have helped to offset its negative impacts. cated that things would even out. “That provincial election provided some degree of assurance of political stability to the production companies that come in,” he said. “We kind of stuck with the devil we know. He said many production companies feared that if the NDP were elected, the provincial tax incentives to the film industry would disappear. “By that stability on the political front, that helped to restabilize the industry in B.C.” Nonetheless, Kaerne said he would still like the province to recognize the film industry as a manufacturer, which he said is an easy fix as it is an administrative

exclusion rather than a legislative one. “The government doesn’t need to put anything through the legislature in order to change that. It needs to be changed as part of their policies and procedures manual.” Leitch acknowledged that while business has been good for his studios, there is some stiff competition from studios across Canada. “It’s still a challenging industry and it’s very competitive,” he said. “There are lot of jurisdictions trying to attract the business, so we’ve really got to be competitive from a price perspective.” Kaerne said there are still efforts within the industry urging the government to

grant exemptions from PST, and Leitch agreed that more businesses would have preferred the HST to remain in place. However, Leitch said pushing the government to drop the PST from the film industry hasn’t been a huge concern as of late. “I think the government’s been very supportive of this industry, and we’ve been very supportive about building the economy in British Columbia,” he said. “We just think that we can play a major role in a strong economy in B.C. “I think the priority right now is to look at opportunities that we’re facing right now and focus on those.” Follow Jacob on Twitter, @jacobzinn

Young artist painting for a good cause

A Burnaby kindergartener who sold her paintings and raised $2,500 for B.C. Children’s Hospital and the Canucks Autism Network this spring is gearing up for another art sale for a cause. Linden, a local five-yearold diagnosed with autism in January, has always loved painting, according to mom Jessica Norman. In March, she decided to put her talents to use to help others. She painted 20 pictures – brightly coloured rainbows, hearts, balloons – and sold them via an online auction launched on Facebook. “She has a really, really caring heart,” Norman said. “That whole painting auction was her idea. She wanted to raise money to help kids. She liked the idea of helping others. I’m super proud of her.” Publicity around Linden’s online art auction caught the attention

Six benefits of summer camp


2011 research project conducted by Dr. Troy Glover and his team at the University of Waterloo discovered, not surprisingly, that attending summer camp is good for kids and youth. The Canadian Summer Camp Research Project, funded by the Canadian Camping Association, explored the outcomes of summer camp participation and concluded it helps kids in _ve key areas of development, including social integration and citizenship, environmental awareness, attitudes towards physical activity, emotional intelligence, and self-con_dence and personal development. Just some of the bene_ts of attending camp found in the report include: ■ Camp increases social connections. Many camp friends remain so for life, and young people befriend individuals sometimes perceived as different from themselves. They also learn to resolve con^icts in a positive manner. ■ Campers have a sense of belonging and develop a sense of pride in their camp. ■ Camp exposes children to the natural world. Current research shows that time spent in a natural environment is as essential to a child’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual development as eating and sleeping. Campers learn to respect and appreciate

the world around them, discover ways to help protect the environment, and develop environmentally friendly attitudes. ■ Camp allows children to live simply. Simple routines in a camp environment allow children to both anticipate and enjoy the day. When life is stripped of cellphones, television and computer-based social networking, children can focus on essentials such as core values. ■ Camp provides a safe, secure, supportive and healthy environment. After participating in a full day of activity, often outside, and enjoying regular, nutritious meals, campers are ready for a good night’s sleep whether in their camp cabin, tent or at home after a busy day. The research also showed 61 per cent of campers showed improved attitudes towards physical activity by the end of their camp session. ■ Camp builds character and self-esteem because children and youth emulate the example of camp leaders through cooperation and consideration of the camp community. They also acquire new skills and learn how to cope independently away from home. Returning campers develop leadership skills. The entire report is available online at

Top five summer camp movies Movies about summer camp have been around almost as long as summer camping, but a quick search of the Internet and straw poll of the Vancouver Courier’s newsroom show it’s obvious some have endured the decades better than others to become classics. Whether it’s coming-of-age,

persevering against all odds or standing up to bullies or axe murderers, there’s a movie for everyone. But it’s a newer movie that almost all agree is a top contender as a summer camp fave, which is where this list begins.

1. Moonrise Kingdom (2012) Actor Bill Murray has the distinction of starring in both this relative newcomer to the summer camp genre as well as the _rst instalment of the Meatballs series of movies. In this coming-of-age movie, director/co-writer Wes Anderson teamed with screenwriter Roman Coppola to create this comedy-drama set in the 1960s. When a pair of young lovers from the New England coast runs away, it throws the adults in their life into a frenzy. 2. Meatballs (1979) In this original Meatballs movie, Bill Murray plays Tripper, the head counsellor at a low-end summer camp. When an 11-year-old boy suffering from depression accidentally causes his team to lose a soccer game and becomes an outcast, Murray takes him under his wing. 3. Little Darlings (1980) Starring Tatum O’Neal and Kristy McNichol, the plot of Little Darlings follows a group of teenaged girls at a summer camp who start a contest to see who will lose their virginity _rst. Much hilarity ensues, and that’s

about all I’m going to say about that. Look for a young Cynthia Nixon from Sex and the City. 4. Wet Hot American Summer (2001) This box-of_ce ^op has since become a cult classic, partially for its early ’80s soundtrack, but also for its cast, many whom have since moved onto much bigger and better things. Look for Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper and Elizabeth Banks. 5. The Parent Trap (1961 and 1998) The original movie starred Haley Mills playing identical twins, separated at an early age by their parents’ divorce, who reunite accidentally at summer camp. The movie follows the twin teens as they work to reunite their parents – at one point switching places at home with a plan to disrupt their mom and dad’s current relationships. The movie was remade in 1998 to star Lindsay Lohan. – Compiled by Sandra Thomas

Summer camps of fer SUMMER CAMPS AT CANLAN BURNABY 8 RINKS job opportunities Website job board lists openings It’s a job that’s inspired movie plots of all genres, including comedy, horror and even romance – Dirty Dancing comes to mind. But the true day-today responsibilities of a summer camp counsellor are less about learning how to dance and more about keeping kids safe, consoling homesick tweens and ensuring everybody has a good time while getting them to the right place at the right time – that is, unless you plan on attending dance camp. Regardless, a job as a summer camp worker is guaranteed to create memories that will last

a lifetime. Whether you eventually want to turn those memories into a screenplay is up to you – and, yes, there’s a camp for that, too. The B.C. Camping Association offers a job board on its website to assist individuals seeking summer work or full-time employment opportunities with its accredited member camps. If you enjoy working with kids, have a passion for the great outdoors and love the camp environment, the website is a great resource and place to start. To apply for a position, send a resumé and

cover letter to the corresponding member camp by the application deadline. To submit a job posting, contact BCCA secretary Conor Lorimer at and submit a request including the application deadline, contact information and a link applicants can follow to the camp’s website or job posting. For a full list of accredited camps, visit the directory at bccamping. org. The City of Burnaby also hires seasonal summer help to _ll positions as playground leaders and day camp workers. – By Sandra Thomas

The exhibition includes two works by award-winning director-producer and visual artist Linda Ohama. Ohama, who was born and raised on a potato farm in Rainier, Alta., is a third-generation JapaneseCanadian. Many of her works focus on the theme of cultural heritage and family. The two featured works, Obachan’s Smile and Inherited Gifts, tell the story of her grandmother Asayo Murakami, the central narrative of her 2001 documentary Obachan’s Garden. A press release notes that the documentary follows the story of Murakami, who left Hiroshima in 1923 and settled in the fishing village of Steveston. In the film, Ohama

Nichola Ogiwara, museum programmer at the Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre, with some of the daruma that will be auctioned for the sixth annual Bloom Art Auction.


Larry Wright/ burnaby now

Want to buy good luck? They’re a traditional talisman of good luck that stretches back to the origin of Zen in fifth-century Japan. Now, they’re also fine art – and they’re up for bids at the Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre’s sixth annual Bloom Art Auction. The museum is offering up 100 artist-designed daruma for a special show and silent auction. The daruma are simple tumbling dolls that are armless and legless, made out of papier-mâché and with a weighted bottom to always stand upright even if pushed down – symbolic of perseverance and fortitude. Classic daruma are eyeless and considered to be good luck in achieving goals: one eye is painted in upon setting the goal, and the second is painted in once the goal has been accomplished.

The museum has invited a host of artists to design creative daruma using whatever colours and mediums they choose. The list of artists includes such names as Mariko Ando Spencer, Sonny Assu, Joyce Kamikura, Michael Nichol Yahgulanaas, Jeff Chiba Stearns, Mary Anne Tateishi and many more. For The daruma will be on display at more photos, the museum gallery from May 10 to scan 24, and they can also be previewed with online at Layar On Saturday, May 24, it’s the Bloom Art Auction Gala from 7 to 9:30 p.m. The event will be hosted by Margaret Gallagher of the CBC and will feature canapés, a cash bar, live entertainment and a raffle. Tickets are $25, or $20 for Nikkei Centre members. Call 604-777-7000 or visit centre. for more.

RAY: Things like the tires, the struts, the

Those parts will wear out sooner than they would have otherwise. Even on a Hummer.

Fighting Irish win first Cup Tom Berridge sports editor

One goal was all that was needed to make Burnaby Men’s Soccer League history. The South Burnaby Fighting Irish became the first team from Burnaby to ever win the B.C. Soccer Provincial B Cup following a 1-0 victory over the defending champion Richmond AllBlacks at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-West on Saturday. The Fighting Irish got that milestone marker from substitute Brian Fox off a blistering header just five minutes into the second half of play. “I think it helped us going out as the underdogs,” said South Burnaby head coach Peter O’Sullivan. “I really had the feeling that this was going to be our day.” The Irish settled into the game after the opening 10 minutes and received quality chances from team captain Luke O’Sullivan, Connor Finucane and Danny Williams. All that positive buildup in play could have gone for naught had it not been for Burnaby keeper Nour Fathy, who came up big on a late breakaway attempt that he palmed past the post to preserve a scoreless first half.

Burnaby champs: Derek Patrao, in black, helped South Burnaby Fighting Irish land a first-ever B.C. Soccer Provincial B Cup for the Burnaby men’s league. last week’s cup semifinal, had to be replaced by Fox. The move proved prophetic after the coach gave Fox some last-minute instructions. “I told Foxy when Connor has the ball to go straight to the net. When Connor crossed it to the far post, Foxy made a bullet of a header to the roof of the net in the first five minutes of the second half,” said

coach O’Sullivan. Luke, Connor and Fox all had further chances in the latter half, but none of them were able to get a second one past the Richmond keeper. Cup MVP defender Evan Chapman and backline teammate Adam Chitticks kept the AllBlacks strikers at bay all day, while blanketing the Richmond league’s top

goal scorer Nan Yang. “Our back line was superb. We did not allow a single goal in open play. The only goal (against us) was on a penalty in the quarter-finals,” O’Sullivan added. The Burnaby league in general is also deserving of praise, said the South Burnaby coach. Soccer Page 24

The Burnaby Lakers are revelling in their newfound B.C. Junior Lacrosse League identity. Burnaby – last season’s laughing stock – knocked off the Delta Islanders 10-9 at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Mother’s Day. The victory came on the heels of a 13-10 win in Langley on May 8. “It’s a great day to be a Laker,” bellowed B.C. player of the week David Mather as he left the floor. That sentiment would have been heard only in jest in 2013, but with a current record of 2-2 and avenging last Sunday’s 17-9 loss to the Islanders, Burnaby’s fortunes and expectations are changing rapidly. “That first win in Langley was nice, but Delta is supposed to be one of the better teams,” said Mather, who stopped 52 shots for his second win of the campaign. “We’re a competitive team, which we couldn’t have said last year.” The steadily improving Lakers took a 1-0 lead on Langley free agent pickup Evan Hunt’s game-opening goal.

Tyler Vogrig, Burnaby’s first overall pick in the midget draft, had a career night, scoring three times and adding four assists. Burnaby held a 6-4 advantage heading into the final period, but Delta staged a mini-comeback of its own, taking a 9-8 lead with five goals in a fourminute span in the first half of the third. Randy Jones led all scorers with four tallies, including an unassisted comeback game-tying goal late in the contest. Lyndon Book completed the rally, potting his first junior A goal at 15:38 of the final frame. “We’ve had the talent, but just not the will to compete everyday,” said Mather, who came from Delta in an off-season trade. But head coach Brad Parker’s team has been addressing the Lakers’ past inconsistencies each week with progressively better results. Mather expects that attitude change to continue. “It’s going to be huge,” he said. “Winning is a new experience we’re not used to here. But once you get one (win), now we’re going to want another one.”

Lake women save best for seventh B.C. title Tom Berridge sports editor

Burnaby Lake’s premier women’s rugby team took peaking at the right time to a whole different level. The Lakers saved their best outing for the Gordon Harris Memorial Cup stage, dominating the unbeaten regular season champion Velox Valhallians 20-7 at Klahanie Park on Saturday. National team back Julia Sugawara ran in a pair of tries for the double blue, the first coming in the first half, giving Burnaby its second consecutive provincial title and B.C. Rugby record seventh all-time. With Burnaby ahead 8-7 at the interval, Sugawara snuck through a

gap on the side of a ruck to tally her second of the game. Catherine Ohler booted a first-half penalty kick and converted front row forward Carolyn McEwen’s try that put the game away for Burnaby. “It’s the same every season. You get to that level, or not,” said longtime women’s head coach Walt Brandl. “It’s so clichéd, but they were willing to put the work in. … Julia (Sugawara) is the heart and soul of that group. … and Carolyn (McEwen) keeps pushing everybody. You’re going to hear of her. She’s going to play for B.C. and pretty soon Canada is going to have to take a look at her.” In what most considered a dominating performance against the 8-0 Velox XV in the final, Brandl said he

could feel it coming. “Two weeks ago, I wouldn’t have, but when I saw what we did to United (in the semifinal) who beat us earlier, I was feeling pretty good.” Another Burnaby Lake veteran Laura Harmse was also enjoying that feeling in her last official game with the club after 20 seasons of service. “We have heart and we wanted it,” said Harmse, who officially retired from competitive rugby after the match. “Every final is another game. Last year, I was extremely calm, but this year, I had a lot of nerves – bittersweet, happy and sad, but I love this game. It’s given me so much.” The win was Burnaby’s third title in four consecutive appearances against Velox in the cup final.

Burnaby Lake comes up short vs. JBAA for third straight time marched downfield and reclaimed a one-point lead on a Vince Herlaar try. The Islanders then appeared to apply stalling tactics following a series of mauls deep in their end after preventing a Burnaby Lake attack late in the game. An infraction by James Bay gave Ryan a chance at redemption and the crafty standoff took full advantage, booting arguably his toughest kick of the day from the sidelines through the posts to give Burnaby Lake a 2220 advantage with just minutes left to play. But the anticipation that this just might be Burnaby Lake’s day were shattered by Mathie’s game-winning kick at goal and the shrill finality of the referee’s whistle. “Unfortunately, at this level it comes down to error rate,” said Cejvanovic. “We had it, but not that entire focus. Now we have to wait another year for the champions trophy.”

If previous losses to James Bay in Rounsefell Cup play were not felt keenly before, Saturday’s 23-22 defeat struck to the heart of every Burnaby Lake supporter. Emotions were difficult to hide on the Burnaby end of the pitch, following a 30-metre penalty kick at goal by James Bay’s Dan Mathie that split the uprights just seconds before the warbling call of the referee’s whistle signalled the end of yet another disappointing outcome against the now 24-time provincial champion. Last season, Burnaby underperformed in an 18-10 loss to James Bay in the cup final. In 2012, the perennial Island champion nipped the Central Valley club by a couple of points in a similar 23-21 scoreline. “The name of the game is the team with the fewest errors wins,” said back row No. 8 Admir Cejvanovic, who tied the game 5-5 with his team’s

first try, bulling his way over the line in support of a Geoff Ryan break. “We had too many errors and did not capitalize on our chances.” Those missed opportunities included four makeable penalty attempts at goal by the usually reliable kicking of Ryan, who led the B.C. Rugby league in scoring with 119 points, including 13 penalties this season. Burnaby Lake trailed 15-7 at halftime, but could have led by a single point, but for the three wide kicks at goal. Ryan missed a fourth penalty attempt to the left from 40m out to start the second half, but James Reekie had other ideas, finishing off an ensuing Burnaby attack that allowed Ryan to close the deficit to 15-14 with a two-point conversion. Fullback Cole McQueen then put the Lakers up by four points with a backline try off a five-metre scrum. With memories of two previous wins over Burnaby Lake in cup play still fresh in their minds, James Bay
