Dear readers The Burnaby NOW is proud to have been an integral part of this community for more than 30 years. Our first newspaper rolled off the presses on November 21, 1983 and was delivered everywhere from doorsteps on Capitol Hill to newspaper boxes on the South Slope. It was a different time and, in many ways, a different world. There were no cellphones, no Pokemon, no electric cars, no Metrotown, no SkyTrain. Bill Bennett was Premier of B.C. and Pierre Elliot Trudeau was Prime Minister of Canada. In Burnaby, Bill Lewarne, had just been re-elected mayor. Much has changed since then, and the media landscape is no exception, particularly in the last decade or so. Throughout it all the Burnaby NOW has been a constant - a hub that not only informs the community but keeps it connected as well. Whether you are a longtime resident of this city or a newcomer, we’re here for you – to let you know what your friends and neighbours are doing, to keep you informed of developments and changes in the city, to follow the local sports and arts scenes, to provide a voice and a place for businesses to introduce themselves to their customers. It is a position of great responsibility and also one that is a great honour and a privilege. The motto on our front page - Local news, local matters - is more than a slogan to us at the Burnaby NOW; it is a heartfelt mission. The relationship this newspaper has with the people of Burnaby goes far deeper than serving as a simple news source. We share your successes, your struggles, your stories, and your input has helped to make us a better newspaper and a better community partner. Times are changing and the business model that has sustained this newspaper for many years must also adapt to ensure the Burnaby NOW is a sustainable enterprise which will continue to serve our readers and advertisers into the future. To that end we are introducing a new voluntary subscription program. A voluntary payment of $5 per month or $50 for the year, will allow us to maintain door to door delivery, which is an increasingly expensive undertaking and a major cost for any newspaper. Let me be clear that participation in our subscription program is strictly voluntary: all Burnaby households will continue to receive the Burnaby NOW at their doorsteps Subscribers will be recognized for their support every month with deals at local merchants, prize draws and more. The first month offers discounts at Valley Bakery, Home Hardware, Carter GM, and Whitespot. Coupons with a combined value of over $50 will be emailed to subscribers each month. In addition, the first 500 subscribers will be entered into a draw to win a $250 Visa gift card. We hope you see the value the Burnaby NOW provides to both the community and to your everyday lives, and that you will take us up on this offer. We believe receiving the paper is worth the cost of a latte or loaf of bread, and we hope you do as well. With the support of our community, we will be able to reinvest in our print product and continue to bring you even more of what you value about your local newspaper – the stories and faces of our community and its citizens, delivered to your doorstep twice a week. To subscribe, please visit subscription.burnabynow.com (no www) or call our office at 604-444-3451. We look forward to your support and to continue serving the people of Burnaby well into the future.

SAYS IT WILL BE GOOD FOR CANADIANS

Trudeau gives OK for pipeline By Tereza Verenca

tverenca@burnabynow.com

Kinder Morgan’s $6.8-billion Trans Mountain pipeline can go ahead, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Tuesday. The federal Liberal cabinet is approving the controversial proposal, which will triple the pipeline’s capacity from 300,000 barrels a day to 890,000. “We believe this project meets strict environmental impact standards, and it will need to meet or exceed 157 conditions set by the National Energy Board,”Trudeau said during a press conference, noting the project will create 15,000 new, middle-class jobs. “We made this decision today because we are convinced it’s in the best interest of Canadians.” The reaction by Burnaby’s two NDP MPs to Tuesday’s announcement was swift. Burnaby South MP Kennedy Stewart said the prime minister has “betrayed” B.C. residents and broken his promise to make Kinder Morgan submit to a new review process. He added the Liberals have Continued on page 8

Expect ‘escalating protests’: BROKE By Tereza Verenca

tverenca@burnabynow.com

A Burnaby group that’s been steadfast in its opposition to the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is warning against escalating protests. Trudeau’s approval of the

contentious project came as no surprise to Karl Perrin, a member of Burnaby Residents Opposing Kinder Morgan Expansion, or BROKE. But government approval doesn’t mean much, according to Perrin. “It’s a done deal as far as

Trudeau is concerned and that makes it very difficult, but that was true in Clayoquot Sound as well,” he told the NOW. Perrin hopes that, like the protests against clearcut logging in Clayoquot Sound in the early 1990s, a compromise will come out

of Burnaby’s fight against the Kinder Morgan expansion.While there are no immediate plans for BROKE to hold protests in the city, Perrin said he would be joining Climate Convergence, a grassroots network of folks fighting for climate justice, at an emergency ral-

Newsnow PUBLIC HEARING

Renter: ‘... we have nowhere to go’ A rezoning application that would see four more older rental buildings demolished in Metrotown triggers another plea from tenants By Jeremy Deutsch

jdeutsch@burnabynow.com

In what has become a familiar scene at city hall, dozens of residents packed council chambers to oppose a rezoning application that would spell the end to four more older rental buildings in Metrotown. On the agenda at a public hearing last Tuesday night was an application by the IBI Group to redevelop four addresses in the Metrotown area, 6695 Dunblane Ave., and 4909, 4929 and 4971 Imperial Street into a 36-storey apartment building. If approved, a total of 84 units of rental housing between four buildings would be demolished. And council got an earful from both residents living in the area and housing activists who oppose the rezoning application, as part of an ongoing fight with the city over demovictions in the area. Natasha Saunders-Kay told council she recently moved to the neighbourhood from Vancouver and lives in fear every day that her rental building will be the next to be demolished. “What a blow to move here and spend the energy

City council needs to reject the immediate rezoning application, tear up the current Metrotown plan update

and effort building a community only to find we’re not wanted here either,” she said, urging council to put themselves in “her shoes.” “Please don’t forget we’re your citizens; we have nowhere to go.” Other residents asked council to say no to the project. “I think we need to pause,” Leila Lolua, a resident of the neighbourhood told council. She suggested, until there are more places for the people being displaced to live, the city needs to stop the rezoning. Lolua also told council it was “wrong” to displace people, adding there are no places for them to go. Dave Neufeld, a Metrotown resident and mem-

MORE DEVELOPMENT: Housing activists and residents have taken to the streets several times in the last year to oppose rezoning applications in the Metrotown area that would see the demolition of older rental buildings. PHOTO FILE ber of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), a group opposed to the rezoning of older buildings in the area, asked council as a sign of good faith, to stop this particular rezoning. A day prior, members of ACORN agreed to meet with the mayor over the Metrotown Development Plan. “Give us a glimmer of hope that council is lis-

tening and will step to the plate, and then you’re going to find the doors are going to open and we can have a discussion,” he said. Members of the Stop Demovictions Burnaby campaign also spoke out against the rezoning proposal. David Diewert, a member of the group, noted 16 buildings totalling 227 units in one block have been demolished, calling the sit-

uation “social cleansing” of low-income renters for higher-income residents to own. “City council needs to reject the immediate rezoning application, tear up the current Metrotown plan update and prioritize the needs and the lives of current residents caught in the grip of a housing and displacement crisis,” he said. The rezoning application

is expected to be back in front of council for the second reading at a future date. Following the public hearing, Mayor Derek Corrigan defended the city against the criticism. He pointed out at the same public hearing, 145 units of non-profit seniors housing was also being put forward by Fairhaven United Continued on page 4

REPORT REVEALS

City’s child poverty rate still high in B.C. Burnaby is tied with the City of Langley for the second highest rate of child poverty in the province

By Tereza Verenca

tverenca@burnabynow.com

The City of Burnaby’s child poverty rate remains one of the highest in the province, according to a new report. Last week, First Call: B.C. Child andYouth Advocacy Coalition released its 2016 report card, which highlighted how one in five children are living in poverty because of a growing

income inequality among B.C. families. Using 2014 data, this year’s provincial child poverty rate sits at 19.8 per cent, slightly lower than last year’s 20.4 per cent. Meanwhile, Burnaby’s child poverty rate is 22 per cent, one per cent lower than last year, and is tied with the City of Langley for the second highest rate. Richmond is at the top of the list at 24 per cent.

The report showed that 17 of the 29 regional districts had child poverty rates higher than 20 per cent, and more than half (51 per cent) of B.C.’s poor children lived in Metro Vancouver. “Poverty is spread all around the province,” Adrienne Montani, provincial coordinator with First Call, told the NOW. “It is a wealthy province and there has been some robust economic growth, but it’s not

being shared.The lowest 50 per cent of families in the province, the bottom 50 per

It’s one of the things we’re working on ... cent in income, only have a quarter of the pie.” Montani said contrary to

popular belief, the majority of impoverished children have working parents; lowwage work in industries like the service sector and retail. The report also showed 1,000 youth age out of government care in B.C. each year and 40 per cent of the province’s homeless youth have been in government care at some point in their lives. Coun. Anne Kang, vicechair of the Burnaby’s social

planning committee, said the findings mean council has more work to do. “It’s one of the things we’re working on in our community,” she said, citing seven city-funded community elementary schools and one secondary school at Byrne Creek. Another initiative noted by Kang was the city’s community benefit bonus policy, Continued on page 4

City now Child poverty ‘You look at the reality of change’ needs all levels It’s part of the evolution of a community. of government Continued from page 3 which has been in place since 1997.The policy enables the city to allow developers or applicants to build additional density in exchange for providing a “community benefit,” like a non-profit space or a park. Kang said tackling child poverty comes down to working with all levels of government. “That would be the most constructive and the best way to move forward with such a challenge in our

community,” she said. The report called for a provincial poverty reduction plan and made 20 public policy recommendations that would cut the child poverty rate to seven per cent or less by 2020. Some of the recommendations include adopting a $10-a-day child care plan; increasing the minimum wage, welfare rates and the provincial child tax benefit; paying living wages; and increasing supports for youth aging out of foster care.

Continued from page 3 Church on Rumble Street, while rezoning applications for another 1,100 new purpose-built rental units came to council on last Monday. “The city is doing a lot of different things out there whether it’s Edmonds, or it’s the properties that have been released, or working with Fairhaven to create different types of housing, whether it’s rental or social housing on a consistent ba-

sis,” he told the NOW last Thursday. But he added there are limited funds available from the provincial and federal governments to make those types of projects work. Corrigan also suggested the buildings being rezoned have reached the end of their life and are not economically sustainable anymore. “If you’re being fair, you look at the reality of change in our community and you

see that whether you’re taking down old social housing and replacing it with much more dense housing, or there is market housing that’s coming down and has reached the end of its life and it’s being replaced

with new and more dense housing, it’s part of the evolution of a community, but it doesn’t mean it’s without pain or without difficulty,” he said, noting 40,000 people are moving to Metro Vancouver every year. He said the question for council is when developers are going to tear down older buildings, does the city get the additional density around SkyTrain stations that will allow city to accept the growth?

City now BURNABY MOUNTAIN TANK FARM

Report outlines ‘significant’ risks to SFU Tereza Verenca

tverenca@burnabynow.com

It’s too late to impact the decision approving the Trans Mountain project, but Simon Fraser University has forwarded the natural resources minister a new report that shows expanding the Burnaby Mountain tank farm would pose “significant” health risks to the SFU community. The report, prepared by PGL Environmental Consultants, concludes that increasing the number of tanks, placing them closer together and increasing the volume of diluted bitumen will increase the risks of accidents, fires and exposure to toxic chemicals. “I think the risks to SFU are unique because it’s not only the tank farm per se, but it’s the impact it could have on cutting off access to the whole top of the mountain and isolating us,” SFU

president Andrew Petter told the NOW on Tuesday the day before the pipeline was approved. “If there were an emergency, often you would expect that the first response would be to evacuate people. Obviously if there’s a serious emergency at the tank farm and it cuts off access to the road, evacuation does not become a realistic possibility, and that itself is a risk.” SFU has been raising concerns about expanding the tank farm for the last two years. It was one of the intervenors during the National Energy Board hearings and a presenter during the ministerial panel meetings this summer. “We commissioned this report to try to pull all the risks that have been discussed,” said Petter. “We said throughout, that any increase to the health and safety of the community resolving from the expansion

It’s not only the tank farm per se, but it’s the impact it could have on cutting off access would not be acceptable. I wanted Minister (James) Carr to know we do object to the proposal to expand the tank farm and why we do so in very clear terms, with all of the evidence in front of him, and hopefully, in front of cabinet.” The report also suggests the health and safety risks of the expansion have not been adequately addressed. “(The Trans Mountain Expansion Project) has not made public the characterization of potential accidents or malfunctions.This means that SFU cannot adequately plan for the safety of the community on Burnaby Mountain,” the document reads.

“That itself is something that is deeply concerning to us because as much as we know there are significant risks, it’s very hard to evaluate how well they can be

mitigated without further information,” Petter said. He added if Prime Minister Justin Trudeau approved the Kinder Morgan pipeline, he’d like to see an alternative to the tank farm expansion. In previous interviews, Trans Mountain has said its number 1 concern is for the safety of the public, its employees, its neighbours and the security and safety of its

operations. “Since announcing the proposed project in 2012, we’ve been discussing all aspects of the project, including safety in the community around our facility through public information sessions, workshops, conversations and meetings with our neighbours,” according to a statement by the company.

Opinion now OUR VIEW

A giant step in the wrong direction So Justin Trudeau has done what many pundits said he would do: Fold to those who promised to keep oil and dollars flowing into Canada’s pockets. We suppose you can’t blame him.Voters prove time and again that they are fickle creatures when it comes to the economy. If they have to pay a dime more at the gas station, or get a buck less on their paycheques, many will simply yell, “throw

the bums out” and vote for someone who promises them “forever” jobs and fewer taxes. So, to take a brave stand and start weaning the country off fossil fuel with an accompanying risk of a minuscule dip in federal income, was, apparently, just too much to ask of him. The problem is that whatever benefits Trudeau may think he has gained by approving the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion will

be nothing compared to the downside. And as most economists argue, the money is not in oil for B.C., but in wine and eco-tourism. And there is the larger, much more distressing downside: “What, oh, what will we tell our children and grandchildren when they ask, “What did you do when you knew about climate change?”Will we shrug and tell them we voted for a politician who said he un-

derstood climate change and said he was going to lead us in another direction, but, alas, he didn’t? With this decision, Trudeau has triggered what may make the Clayoquot protests of the 1990s seem like a walk in the literal woods. Protesters back then, in what was the largest act of civil disobedience in Canada, stopped clear-cut logging of the old growth forests on Clayoquot Sound.

Protesters were already organizing last week in Vancouver leading seminars on “non-violent direct action” to stop the pipeline. People are simply not going to sit back and watch an incredibly flawed project be built without major protests – both physical and at the ballot boxes. And, unfortunately, Burnaby will be the epicentre for these protests. Will this matter to

Trudeau? Perhaps not. Once he has given federal approval, he may think he has passed the hot potato to Christy Clark. But she won’t be the one who will be remembered for the decision or the fallout. He will carry the can for this one. And it will be a very big can, for a very long time. COMMENT ON THIS AT

Burnabynow.com

MY VIEW KEITH BALDREY

ICBC is still a political football One of B.C.’s oldest political footballs is being kicked around again, and the kicking is expected to continue for some time. I’m referring to the Insurance Corporation of B.C. Some seriously large ICBC rate hikes appear to be inevitable, the result of a government plundering the corporation’s bottom line and of a dramatically changing car insurance industry. Three rate increase scenarios were released by ICBC recently, and the worst-case for one of them would see a compounded 42 per cent hike spread over the next five years.The bestcase scenario envisions a 16 per cent increase over the same time frame. Given the huge spike in costs associated with motor vehicle accidents and the fact that there appears little prospect that those costs will decline anytime soon, the worst-case scenario seems much more reflective of reality than the other. Rick McCandless, a retired assistant deputy minister who now spends his days analyzing ICBC and B.C. Hydro finances, has been warning for months now that ICBC’s growing habit of using profits from the optional insurance side (almost a half billion dollars this past year) to keep basic insurance costs from growing at an explosive rate cannot be sustained. The B.C. Liberals now say they will not take a financial “dividend” from the increasingly cash-strapped Crown for at least the next three years. But even that

won’t solve the riddle of rising costs. Vehicle crashes in B.C. have jumped an astounded 15 per cent in the past two years.Those crashes mean personal injury claims are up, and so are the costs of repairing vehicles. Improved technology and safety features on motor vehicles have made them much more expensive to repair. All these rising costs are borne by ICBC, which simply isn’t raising rates high enough to pay for them. But while the insurance game is changing, the political game associated with it likely won’t. Almost since it was created in the 1970s, government decisions dealing with ICBC rates have been based on politics, and not economics.The NDP governments in 1975 and 1996 both allowed political strategy – based on the election cycle – to determine rate levels. The B.C. Liberals, since coming to power in 2001, have exerted much more political control over the Crown and have used it as a cash cow, which plays a major role in balancing the government’s central budget in various years. And now, with an election looming, the government is unlikely to admit the fiscal reality to millions of drivers whose votes it will soon be wooing. But any attempt to confine ICBC’s annual rate hike to a politically expedient, yet economically unsustainable figure is simply putting off the day of reckoning. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Work-to-rule proves ironic

Burnaby North students working on a film about controversial early 1900s mining union leader Ginger Goodwin were none too pleased about having their work impeded by job action.The students had to finish the class project without help from teachers, whose union’s workto-rule campaign prevented their involvement. One student called it “supremely ironic.” “It’s a video about the union movement and we are being restrained by the union job action,” said Grade 12 student Kevin Ong.

Urban forest land needs to be preserved

Mayor offers to meet with housing activists

Dear Editor Re: ‘Evict Corrigan’, Trending Comments, pg. 7 in the Opinion section of Burnaby NOW, Nov. 16. The writer asks: “Not even one very old tree left standing in all these woods round Vancouver? Please tell me if I am wrong.” Yes, but they are few. They exist in an area called the old interurban forest , which is bordered in Burnaby mostly between Cariboo Road and Craig Avenue. Please visit https:// oldinterurbanforestpreservation.org and please note there is a petition there for you to sign if you wish to help preserve this rare and precious site. However, in answer to your “rape the planet” statement, You’d think yes, Buranby Burnaby council council, in past and would smarten the at present, up to this by now. does have plans to do so to this area, by filling it in with more houses. Further, in this particular area, there are four creeks that help feed the Brunette River, which is an enhancement to the many salmon that have now been enticed back to the area with the help of too few streamkeepers (and some fewer streams now exist thanks to such former plans made by Burnaby council. For example, on the north side of the Brunette, Lost Creek is now a lost creek). The area’s trail is also the last remnant of the old interurban trams that used to run through the Vancouver-Burnaby-New Westminster area as well. Plus, the particular area, which is home to those trees, is also home to several bobcats, coyotes, and recently, a mama bear and two cubs. That, plus the fact that the Cariboo Road corridor traffic is backed up too much already during rush hour – I’d say we’ve had enough, and you’d think Burnaby council would smarten up to this by now, wouldn’t you? Den Robinson, Burnaby

Engineers’ concerns should be heeded Dear Editor Engineers, almost by definition, draw their determinations from facts rather than the court of public opinion. So when a group of professional engineers called the Concerned Professional Engineers (CPE) concludes, after lengthy scientific analysis, that there is a 10 per cent chance of an eight-million-litre marine spill in the 50-year life span of the proposed Kinder Morgan TMX pipeline expansion, including a potentially destructive collision with the Second Narrows Bridge, there is cause for serious concern that cannot be easily dismissed. Check out their conclusions and view the CPE Second Narrows bridge disaster simulation scenario at www.concernedengineers.org. B. Hechter, Burnaby JOIN THE CONVERSATION ON TWITTER

Jack Burns I suggest ACORN won’t allow Mayor Corrigan to drag them into a social housing debate, and then endlessly point to provincial and federal levels. We already know he loves to dilute the issues when matters are as complex as housing. That’s what he is trained for. That’s what lawyers do. Only 12% of Metrotown’s rental unit stock is non-market housing. The issue at heart is mass destruction of “affordable market rental housing” and the concomitant mass displacement of 6000 to 8000 folks. That’s his doing. EVICT CORRIGAN Is there an agenda for this meeting? Unless the Mayor announces something material like moratoriums on rezoning and demovictions, affordable rentals in the same area or in the new building that replaces yours, city-wide referendum on development plans, etc.,,, what is the point of such a meeting? And if the meeting goes ahead, can the meeting be recorded and shared on the Internet? Why not? Jason Mason Jack Burns Get involved in Politics, Jack. Monsters are born when good people do nothing.

Local MP conducts pipeline survey Mike Morace Kennedy Stewart asked North Burnaby MP Terry Beech his position on the pipeline in the House of Commons, but Beech was evasive and didn’t answer even though the majority of the Burnaby North - Seymour riding opposes it. If an MP does not represent their riding in Ottawa, what good is democracy?

Child poverty rate among highest in B.C. bill smith How can this be? NDP/BCA has had an absolute monopoly in Burnaby for many years... no opposition, no accountability, no honest debates. As well, S. Burnaby has an NDP MLA and NDP MP.... oh, let me guess, it’s somebody else’s fault. Burnaby Capitalist A quick recap of recent topics in Burnaby Now: poor kids and overpaid teachers, demovicted poor mothers and other people in need, unaffordable rentals, rezoning without pro-affordability conditions and without any meaningful / serious consultations, voting / referendum and mitigation of unwanted consequences, 10% or more empty housing units, unapproved substandard vision / plan for Metrotown, blocked economic development (KM), blaming others whenever possible. Life being rather short, is this the best we can do?

City now PIPELINE APPROVED

MP: ‘I’m just disgusted by this whole thing’ Continued from page 1 approved a pipeline that was reviewed by former prime minister Stephen Harper’s process. “They (voters) trusted Mr.Trudeau with their votes; they believed him when he was speaking in the election, and now he’s betrayed that trust,” Stewart told the NOW. The Burnaby MP also expects tension and conflict in B.C. with the pipeline’s approval. “It’s going to bring this

province to a standstill,” he said. “That is so disrespectful to us. I don’t think I’ll be able to look at him (Trudeau) in the House of Commons. I’m just disgusted by this whole thing.” It was a sentiment echoed by New Westminster-Burnaby MP Peter Julian. “It is a very clear betrayal for anyone who voted Liberal in the last campaign, and what Mr.Trudeau is showing them is just contempt for the promises he made in the last campaign,”

he said. Julian pointed out Trudeau promised not to approve pipelines without social licence, suggesting there is clearly not social licence for the project here in B.C. And he too expects to see people taking to the streets

in a push back against the pipeline. “I think for Mr.Trudeau to try and ram this through over British Columbians’ objections shows appallingly bad judgment,” Julian said. Burnaby North-Seymour Liberal MP Terry Beech emailed a statement at press

thing like that, it’s symbolic. It means that you will be taking this farther in regard to the opposition, and that’s really where we’re going to find there’s thousands and thousands of people in the Lower Mainland, here in British Columbia, who feel very passionately about this issue,” he said. Corrigan added, while it’s too early to say, he suspects the city will appeal. FOLLOW THIS STORY ON

Quick facts about the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion The Trans Mountain pipeline has been in place since the 1950s and transports crude and diluted bitumen from the Alberta oil sands to Burnaby. It’s the only pipeline to the West Coast. " The line currently ships 300,000 barrels of oil per day but will increase to 890,000, nearly triple, if the company builds a twin line, mostly along the same route. The additional oil is destined for foreign markets, like China. " The company would add more than a dozen new tanks to the Burnaby Mountain storage facility, increasing capacity from 1.6 million barrels of oil to 3.6 million. "The project includes plans to expand the Westridge Marine Terminal, where tankers load crude, by raising the number of berths to three. Monthly tanker traffic on the Burrard Inlet would increase from five to 34. " According to Kinder Morgan, benefits include increased tax revenue for the City of Burnaby from $7 million to $13 million and 50 permanent post-construction jobs in all of B.C.

Expect more protests, says city group Continued from page 1 depressing result after years of advancing what I think has been a very cogent case to deny the pipeline,” he told the NOW. “I think there will definitely be continuing protests, and it will be a very difficult and controversial project to bring through.” Asked if he will follow through on his bulldozer promise, the mayor didn’t exactly say yes or no. “I think everybody knows that when you say some-

Murder charge laid in Burnaby man’s death Jeremy Deutsch

jdeutsch@burnabynow.com

Homicide investigators have charged the person they believe responsible for the murder of a Burnaby father in 2015. On Monday, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team announced a second degree murder charge against Jordan Braun, 19, in the death of Elmer Libertino. Libertino’s body was found lying on Moscrop Street near Smith Avenue in the early morning of April 16, 2015. At the time, investigators determined the 34-year-old had died from injuries as a result of foul play. “After a review of the evidence, there’s nothing to suggest that Mr. Libertino and Mr. Braun were known to each other,” IHIT Cpl. Meghan Foster said. “Investigators worked tirelessly to gather evidence and pursue investigative leads. The tenacious efforts of IHIT investigators, and their policing partners, have resulted in this positive outcome.” She noted the circumstances leading up to the homicide are part of the case going to court and couldn’t speak in detail but added investigators believe the murder was a random act. Foster noted Braun, also a Burnaby resident, had just turned 18 at the time of the alleged homicide and was known to police. She also said investigators established Braun as a person

of interest early on the case and it took 19 months to get enough evidence to lay a charge. Libertino’s family also released a statement through IHIT: “We are thankful for sharing the precious life of a dearest son, an amazing brother, a trusted friend, a great and loving father, and husband, Elmer, or Tootz as known to many, who was taken from us suddenly. Our hearts are irreparably broken, and our lives are forever altered for his untimely and tragic loss. He came to Canada with a great dream for himself, for his loving wife, and for his three smart and beautiful kids, but he was taken away so soon...

He is dearly missed every day. On behalf of our family, we will be forever grateful to IHIT for their utmost dedication, commitment, and perseverance in helping us attain peace and justice. Words will never be enough to say how we appreciate everything they did, thank you so much.To all our relatives and friends who supported us in this challenging journey of our life, we appreciate all the help and prayers. We were able to bring him back ‘home.’ Elmer’s passing is a reminder for all of us that life is precious and love is forever.” Braun remains in custody until his first court appearance today (Nov. 30).

MP conducts pipeline survey If you live in the Burnaby North-Seymour riding and have a landline, you may have received a phone call recently, asking if you’re for or against the proposed Trans Mountain expansion project. Kennedy Stewart, NDP MP for Burnaby South, conducted an automated phone survey on the controversial project between Nov. 8 and 16. Of the 2,299 households that were surveyed by Direct Leap Technologies Inc., 66 per cent opposed it, while 34 per cent were in favour. Stewart told the NOW he plans to conduct phone surveys in up to 10 more

ridings before the federal Liberal cabinet makes its decision by Dec. 19.The hope, according to the MP, is to put on “as much pressure as possible.” “This is the best way. Showing MPs the level of opposition in their riding is one way of prompting them to stand up to their prime minister and saying, ‘We don’t want this,’” he said, adding he has no idea which way the decision will go. “I have heard everything from it’s absolutely going to be cancelled, to it’s absolutely going to be approved. Now I’ve heard that it’s going to be rerouted. I haven’t got one thing that’s indi-

cated to me one way or the other at this point,” said Stewart. He had a similar response when asked if he’s heard what day cabinet will make its announcement. “I’ve heard Friday this week. I’ve heard Monday next week and I’ve heard they’re going to wait right until the deadline,” he said. If approved, Stewart said he’ll be meeting with First Nations leaders, city mayors and other groups to see what the next step is. “(It) just keeps me up at night thinking how much trouble this could cause in our communities,” he said. – TerezaVerenca

BACI gets money for affordable housing project Jeremy Deutsch

jdeutsch@burnabynow.com

A Burnaby organization that helps people with developmental disabilities is getting a cash infusion from the province for a new affordable rental housing project. On Thursday, the provincial government announced $2 million in capital funding for a rental housing project at 3755 Banff Ave. in North Burnaby, headed

by the Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion (BACI). The plan is to build nine new units of affordable housing for people with developmental disabilities along with redeveloping BACI’s existing child-care centre at the same location. Richard Faucher, BACI’s co-executive director, explained the mission of the organization is to provide support for folks with developmental disabilities, and

the new housing will be targeted to that group looking for affordable housing. While he noted the nine units don’t address all of the community’s needs and the group could use more, he said the grant is a step in the right direction. “We know that those nine units will have a real impact on the few people with disabilities and many families that are using our child-care centre,” Faucher told the NOW.

Those nine units will have a real impact The funding for the project has come out of a $500 million pot from the provincial government for affordable rental housing across B.C. Burnaby MLA Richard Lee, who made the fund-

ing announcement, praised BACI for the work the group has been doing to provide service to those with disabilities. “Providing affordable housing options for people with developmental disabilities is a key part of furthering their independence,” he said. It also ensures that having a place to call home continues to be a possibility for all.” The provincial government also recently an-

nounced funding for 202 affordable rental units in Burnaby, which include 145 units put forward by Fairhaven United Church on Rumble Street. In the meantime, construction on BACI’s nine new units is expected to begin in the fall of 2017. Faucher said the organization will consider who the new residents will be when the project is closer to completion.

CITY COUNCIL

Volkow on leave with brain tumour Tereza Verenca

tverenca@burnabynow.com

A longtime Burnaby city councillor has taken a leave of absence to deal with a brain tumor. Coun. Nick Volkow, who was first elected to Burnaby city council in 1996, told the NOW he’s been having headaches and nausea recently. He went to the emergency room at Burnaby Hospital on Nov. 16 and was scheduled in for a CT scan two days later.Volkow was then transferred to Royal Columbian Hospital that evening. Doctors called him the following Monday to let him know they found a brain tumour and that he’d need to get a biopsy on Nov. 25 to find out if it’s malignant or benign. The prognosis seems to be good, according to Volkow. “(After) talking to my surgeon, talking to the anesthesiologist these last couple of days, it’s pretty posi-

tive.We’re positive,” he said. “I’m in good hands and I’m feeling pretty good about it. I’m feeling upbeat.” While he deals with his health, Coun. Anne Kang will assume his responsibilities on the social planning committee (she’s currently vice-chair), while Lance Matricardi (deputy chairperson) will do the same for the parks, recreation and culture commission. Volkow encourages everyone, especially men, to get checked out if they’re experiencing severe headaches with a bout of nausea. “Most men, we just think, ‘Oh god, it’s a headache, whatever. I’m not going to go bug anybody about a headache; take a couple of aspirins, right?’” he said. The father of three added he’s unsure how long his leave of absence will be, but said he’ll take a wait-andsee approach. “Not every day you come down with this situation,” he said.

New to Burnaby? Make new friends at MOSAIC’s seniors’ club Tereza Verenca

Immigrant seniors new to Burnaby are encouraged to check out MOSAIC’s seniors’ club. The organization is home to a host of free activities that allow participants to make new friends, learn new skills and join community events.Yoga classes,Tai Chi, knitting and computer workshops are just some of the offerings. “We always ask people to call in and make sure there’s room in any of our classes,” said settlement outreach worker Jennifer Ng. “We do an intake process to begin with and then we place them in the different programs they’re interested in.” Ng noted the activities switch every three months, so it’s important to call ahead. The seniors’ club also is a great resource for newcomers. “We do one-on-one support, so if there’s any issues like government benefits or bus pass programs, they can definitely come in to see us and make an appointment. We’ll sit down and resolve what we need to resolve. If we can’t do that, we can refer (them) to other organizations that can help,” said Ng. For seniors who need a little help with their English, MOSAIC has an Eng-

lish language conversation circle.The program is designed to help seniors learn basic day-to-day English and to practise everyday communication in a friendly setting, said Ng. “We have two levels, usually a lower beginner.They learn a lot of new vocabulary, that kind of thing, and

We always ask people to call in and make sure there’s room … upper beginner, which is a little more advanced,” she

added, noting the conversation circle takes a break in December, July and August. MOSAIC has two locations in Burnaby, at 5902 Kingsway and at 2055 Rosser Ave. For more information, visit tinyurl.com/ hjmv58l or call 604-4388214 to register.

Not everyone is able to get out of the house and make it to their local library. That’s where the Burnaby Public Library’s home library and accessible service program comes in. It’s a home delivery service available to anyone who has been confined to their home for three months or more. “It’s not necessarily for someone who breaks their arm or sprains their wrist.

It’s meant for chronic problems,” said community outreach librarian Kelsey Jang, who cited reasons such a physical or visual disability. “This service is really all about supporting the needs of our community and one of the key ways BPL tries to remove barriers to provide access to library service.” Even though the program is accessible by all Burnaby residents, Jang said the majority of patrons are seniors.

METROTOWN a little R&R this season

The holidays can be a time of joy, togetherness and giving, but they can also be very stressful. Finding ways to relax when you’re 9#(C4G(4E& #( 45$ R# 0C O0879DE4P \D4 there’s nothing like settling into a warm bath with a good book to recuperate.

KINGSWAY part in the cycle of giving There are many cyclists in Burnaby and beyond, but it isn’t always easy to know what to get them for the holidays – particularly if they already have a beloved bike. Tracking down the per-

fect cycling accessory can take some help. Luckily, the staff at Cap’s Westwood Cycle on Kingsway are well-versed in all things bicycle. One of four locations throughout the Lower Mainland, the Cap’s Westwood shop in Burnaby is a perfect spot for picking up something for the cycling enthusiast in your life. Though

if you’re a local, you’ve probably got more than one cyclist on your gift list this year. Making sure your favourite rider is safe is a great place to start. Winter means long, dark afternoons and evenings, so bike lights are absolutely essential. The Bontrager Ion 800R is a powerful headlight with a nice, sleek design. The CREE LED light inside is very

And for the other end of the bike, there’s the Bontrager Flare R Tail Light. It also uses a bright CREE LED bulb. It is specially designed for daylight visibility, as well as night. To keep cyclists warm on the road, there is the CamelBak Forge Divide insulated travel mug. It comes in a range of bright colours and is designed for drinking onehanded. The drinking valve is opened with a button and then seals shut, to prevent leaks. When it comes to gifts on wheels for kids, scooters are always popular. The shop recently got

in the 2017 line of Lucky scooters. These include a variety of models such as the Lucky Dirt Scooters, Lucky Crew Pro and Lucky Covenant Pro. And for those who aren’t feeling lucky, there are many other brands to choose from, as well as accessories for those who already own a scooter and just want to update it a little. There’s something really special for the loved one on your list who already has everything they need for their bicycle – an e-bike. Electric bikes have become really popular in the Lower Mainland and there

are plenty to choose from, different styles perfect for mountain biking, commuting or just cruising around town. And for the truly content cyclist who has all the bike bells and whistles they need, the best present of all is giving them the skills to care for their ride. Cap’s Westwood offers U-Wrench classes at the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. There are plenty of presents perfect for the riders on your list, whatever their preferred way of getting around. Staff at the Burnaby store, located at 5400 Kingsway, can provide more details on courses, bikes and accessories.

It gives seniors some social interaction. “We check in with our patrons to see how they like their order and some of them like to chat, some of them don’t, but we get to know our patrons very well,” she said. Meanwhile, when library staff make their stop every four weeks, each patron’s package is personalized. “We do a reader profile on their likes and dislikes.They tell us sometimes what types of genres they like, or their favourite authors, or how many mysteries a month they want, and we cater their order,” Jang said, noting that also means ensuring users have materials that work for them, whether it’s a book in large print or an audio book.

Communitynow Operation Red Nose returns with safe rides home Jeremy Deutsch

jdeutsch@burnabynow.com

As the holiday season ramps up and the bubbly begins to flow, a popular service to get you home safe returns. Operation Red Nose is back in Burnaby for another season.This year, the service will run the four weekends before Christmas and NewYear’s Eve. It started Nov. 25 and 26, and it continues Dec. 2, 3, 9, 10,

16, 17 and 31.The service starts at 9 p.m. and runs until 3 a.m. Operation Red Nose coordinator Chris Wilson noted the service typically provides about a thousand rides during the campaign, but there is still room to grow, especially in Burnaby and New Westminster. He suggested there are still a lot of people out there who are driving when they shouldn’t and who don’t really understand how Opera-

tion Red Nose works. “They might say ‘Wow, I get a ride home, I do the right thing and a charity really benefits from it,’”Wilson said. Operation Red Nose uses a team of volunteers to drive people and their cars home, for a donation.Volunteers work in teams of three, with two driving the client in the client’s vehicle and the third following behind in another vehicle. The money from dona-

tions goes toward KidSport and gets divided by the rides in each community. Last year, the holiday service provided a total of 934 rides in Burnaby, New Westminster and the TriCities.The organization also raised $31,490 in donations at an average of $33.72 per ride. While Operation Red Nose is entering its 10th year in the Tri-Cities, it expanded to include Burnaby and New Westminster

in 2012. In Burnaby and New Westminster, the service provided 285 rides during the campaign and raised more than $9,000 in donations between the two communities. For Red Nose organizers, all that money means 125 kids got the opportunity to take part in a season of sports. However, with the service’s success comes at least one challenge: getting enough volunteers to drive

people home. “We really encourage people to let their friends, family and co-workers know about the service so that they can get home safely and also help KidSport at the same time,”Wilson said. If you’re interested in volunteering, go to operation rednosetricities.com for more information. For a ride, call 778-8666673.

Here’s a fun one to get your hands a little messy – the Nikkei Centre is hosting a Mochitsuki Day at the end of this year. Mochitsuki is the process by which Japanese rice cakes are made. In Japan, the mochi-pounding process is fast paced. Some shops even attract a crowd when the mochi pounders get going. The Nikkei Centre is inviting everyone to drop in and try their hand at mochi pounding on Dec. 29, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.The event features a traditional mochipounding demonstration by the Vancouver Japanese Gardener’s Association, mochi tasting and mochi and Japanese food sales. Admission is free.The centre is at 6688 Southoaks Cres. For more information, visit www.nikkeiplace.org or call 604-777-7000. COATS FOR KIDS Kudos to Knights of Columbus for another successful Coats for Kids campaign, which saw 340 coats delivered to people in need on Nov. 23. Close to $6,000 was raised to buy the winter attire, according to Daren Hancott, Grand Knight of Coquitlam Council 5540. Among the deliveries was one of Burnaby’s Helping Families in Need Society, which received 85 jackets. “There’s a huge need,”

Hancott told the NOW. “Ray (the society’s president) said he could take a lot more than that.” Coats were also dropped off to a Syrian refugee family, Eva’s House Domestic Abuse Shelter,Talitha Koum Society, St.Vincent de Paul Society, Coquitlam’s Suwa’lkh Secondary School and Vancouver’s Lookout Society. The Knights are planning to also drop off jackets to Covenant House and Aunt Leah’s Place in New West. “All in all, it was a wonderful day. Everyone seemed happy, inspired to do more to help, and were in awe of the continual good works of all the people and organizations they met,” said Hancott in a press release.

orest Lawn and Ocean View cemeteries both have a long history in Burnaby, and the funeral homes beside them have helped grieving families for generations. The cemeteries have been in the city since the early 1900s, according to Andrew Knapman, Location Manager at Forest Lawn Funeral Home. The funeral homes were built more recently, and Forest Lawn had a major renovation within the last few years. “It’s very beautiful,” Knapman says. “It’s been updated, and it’s very stylish and comfortable.” According to Knapman, the cemeteries are the most centrally located large properties in the Lower Mainland that still have space available. “We certainly get a lot of people from Burnaby because they’ve grown up around us and they know us,” Knapman says. “But we get people from all over.” Both cemeteries are also conveniently located next to the funeral homes, he adds. The funeral homes honour events such as Mother’s Day and Father’s Day by holding an open house where families can light a candle and gather in the reception lounge for coffee and tea before visiting the cemetery.

On Remembrance Day, the funeral homes offer small Canadian flags for those who wish to place them on veterans’ graves. The funeral homes belong to the Dignity Memorial network. Dignity Memorial®’s parent company, Service Corporation International, received the J.D. Power President’s Award for its dedication to service excellence this year. “We always feel that we only have one chance to get it right,” Knapman says. “So we do our very best, every time, for every family.” To find out more about making arrangements with either Forest Lawn or Ocean View funeral homes, call 1-800-34-DIGNITY or go to www. forestlawn-burnaby.com and www. oceanviewfuneral.com. Forest Lawn is at 3789 Royal Oak Ave. and Ocean View is at 4000 Imperial Street.

Blood pressure: Five myths, and the real truth DavidicusWong HEALTHWISE

editorial@burnabynow.com

Do you know your numbers? You know by heart your birthdate and age, home and cell numbers, your address and maybe even your social insurance number. But there’s one number that every adult should know: your blood pressure. To understand why this measurement is so important, let’s explore five myths about blood pressure. MYTH #1: “IT’S JUST A NUMBER.” It’s more than a number. It’s one of your vital signs (e.g. heart rate and temperature, not your astrological sign). Blood pressure is the measurement of the pressure of blood inside your blood vessels, specifically, the brachial artery of the upper arm. A normal blood pressure of 120/80 (“120 over 80”) represents a systolic pressure of 120 mm

Hg (when the heart contracts) and a diastolic pressure of 80 (when the heart relaxes). Of course, we need a normal amount of pressure to deliver blood to all your vital organs, but chronically high blood pressure (hypertension) damages those organs and arteries themselves. MYTH #2: “I DON’T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT IT.” High blood pressure damages the walls of arteries throughout the body, including the kidneys, brain, heart, eyes and extremities. Over time, it contributes to atherosclerosis (narrowing of arteries), manifested as progressive kidney failure, loss of circulation to your feet and legs, dementia, loss of vision, erectile dysfunction, heart failure (weakness in the pumping of the heart) and angina (chest pain due to impaired circulation to the heart muscle). The catastrophic end results are premature heart attacks, strokes, blindness, kidney failure requiring dialysis, amputations of toes

and feet, aneurysms (the expansion and rupture of blood vessels in the chest, abdomen or brain) and end stage heart failure. MYTH #3: “IF I FEEL GOOD, IT CAN’T BE BAD.” A lot of us might assume that if we feel good, we must be healthy and our blood pressure couldn’t be a problem.There’s a common misconception that individuals with high blood pressure are stressed out or angry like Donald Duck. Mickey Mouse is just as likely to be hypertensive. High blood pressure may be caused by medical conditions such as kidney disease or an overactive thyroid, by medications including ibuprofen or an unhealthy lifestyle; however, 95 per cent of people with high blood pressure have essential hypertension that is often genetic. Blood pressure also increases with age. In fact, one in five adults has high blood pressure, and your lifetime risk for developing hypertension is 90 per cent.Your risk may

be even higher if you have a family history of high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney failure or strokes.

pressure is high at least eight hours/day (i.e. at work) in addition to the medical clinic, it should be treated.

MYTH #4: “IT’S ONLY HIGH AT THE DOCTOR’S OFFICE.” White coat syndrome is a genuine condition wherein the patient’s blood pressure is much higher when taken by a doctor or nurse than at home. I ask my patients to measure and record their

MYTH #5: “IF I START A MEDICATION, I’M STUCK ON IT FOR LIFE.” As a physician, I want my patients to maintain safe blood pressure levels and avoid the long-term complications. Medications have a potent effect in lowering blood pressure but they are not addictive and don’t make the body dependent any more than before they are started. I have many patients who have been able to reduce the doses and numbers of medications they take through major lifestyle changes. Some now have normal blood pressures without any drugs. These potent lifestyle changes include quitting smoking, limiting or stopping alcohol, increased physical activity, weight loss (if overweight), eating more fruits and vegetables and less red meat, and limiting sodium (salt) in the diet.

One in five adults has high blood pressure home blood pressures with a reliable machine (that we compare to our office equipment). If blood pressure is only elevated at the clinic but never at home or work, we don’t prescribe medications. However, some people have a significant rise in their blood pressure with any stressful situation, including their work. If the blood

QUESTIONS FOR DAVID MITSUI Tereza Verenca

tverenca@burnabynow.com

1

YOUR GRANDFATHER, SGT. MASUMI MITSUI, FOUGHT IN THE FIRST WORLD WAR AND WAS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO HELPED JAPANESE CANADIANS WIN THE VOTE IN B.C. IN 1931. HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL? I’m very proud to be a grandson, and certainly honoured to be able to share his story and the story of the Issei (Japanese immigrants) for their fight to win their right to vote, but also the

fight to join the Canadian Expeditionary Forces in the First World War. He never talked about his wartime experiences. Every Remembrance Day, he would put on his uniform, his Legion beret and wear his medals. But he would stay at home. He never went to a public service. It was his way of honouring his comrades, and especially his fallen comrades.

WHY IS IT YOU’RE DOING IMPORTANT TO A TALK AT THE KEEP THIS PART OF NIKKEI CENTRE ON HISTORY ALIVE? DEC. 3. WHAT DO The Japanese Canadian YOU WANT THE TAKEAWAY history is a story, I think, TO BE? that starts with hope. When In (coming to Canada), they left Japan, they hoped they endured a lot of for a better life in Canada hardship and racial and that involved a lot of discrimination, but through sacrifice. It meant leaving their resilience family behind and it and their goal also meant starting to be accepted all over in a foreign as full citizens country. It’s also of Canada, they a story of racial made sacrifices discrimination, and demonstrated similar to their allegiance to what Chinese Canada, and proved immigrants went that they were through, similar worthy of Canadian to what First David Mitsui Nations have gone speaking on Dec. 3 citizenship. (Also), through. They were the uprooting of 22,000 targeted by white society and there was a lot Japanese Canadians of prejudice. during the Second World

War has affected several generations of Canadians of Japanese ancestry. Neither my generation, the third generation nor the fourth generation have the language. We do some Japanese cultural things, but when my brother and I were raised, we were raised to be Canadian because of the internment.

4

YOUR GRANDFATHER LIVED A LONG LIFE. WHAT’S ONE PIECE OF ADVICE HE GAVE YOU THAT HAS STUCK WITH YOU? Education was really important to him. He was always supportive of my brother and I to go to university because he never got a chance to further his education. My

understanding is that his father in Japan was a naval officer in the Japanese navy. He tried to enlist and he was not successful. And my dad thinks it’s because he didn’t have his Grade 12.

5

IF YOU COULD SEE HIM AGAIN, WHAT WOULD YOU TELL HIM? I hope that I’m keeping his promise to his comrades. He said at the rededication of the cenotaph in Stanley Park in 1985, ‘They are gone, but not forgotten.’ THE TALK You can hear David Mitsui speak at the Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre (6688 Southoaks Cres.) on Dec. 3 at 3 p.m. Admission is free.

WLA hires brand new commish Burnaby native aims to help rebuild WLA brand Dan Olson

dolson@burnabynow.com

With an impressive lacrosse and business pedigree, Paul Dal Monte has been someone who’s had his name floated around whenever a Western Lacrosse Association team’s coaching or general managing position opened up. Due to a busy schedule, the Burnaby native always gratefully declined all offers. But the WLA finally found something that fit. Dal Monte was announced Monday as the league’s new commissioner, who will take over from Ernie Truant as the person working with the governors to manage the seven-team circuit, handle player discipline, and help expand the brand. It’s a challenge the soon-to-be 58 year old is eager to take on. “One of the reasons I think I was approached, and threw my hat into the ring, is that the sport is something I have been involved with since I was eight years old,” said Dal Monte. “Over the many years I developed and continue to enjoy many friendships and connections with people in the game. I think those personal connections will make the job enjoyable.” His involvement as a player – both as a junior with the Burnaby Cablevision and with the New Westminster senior Salmonbellies – was filled with highlights, including three Minto Cup crowns and as many Mann Cup titles. He would co-coach the Burnaby junior Lakers alongside David Lough for eight seasons, each time advancing to the Minto championships and prevailing in 1998, 2000 and 2003. He also served as head coach/director of operations for the Vancouver Ravens during its three years in the National Lacrosse League. Outside of lacrosse, Dal Monte spent 15 years as an executive in the Vancouver Canucks marketing department and more recently consulted on marketing for the Ottawa Senators, Saskatchewan Roughriders, Abbotsford Heat and Langley Events Centre. That the governors voted 7-0 to hire Dal Monte was an emphatic and rare showing of unity, said New Westminster Salmonbellies president and general manager and WLA chair Dan Richardson. “We wanted to go in a little different direction and branch out in areas where we’ve been lacking,” said Richardson. “I think one of the problems we have is putting bums Continued on page 42

Panthers prevail in field hockey final

Moscrop takes senior girls title as district league ends first season after long absence Dan Olson

dolson@burnabynow.com

The game ended in a 2-0 win, with one team prevailing over another. But in true fact, the season completed with four teams winning – in that those who came to play and restart a once-strong league have established a foothold for others to follow. The Moscrop Panthers will proudly display the Burnaby-New West senior girls field hockey banner, after blanking the New Westminster Hyacks 2-0 on Thursday. It crowned a season where four schools formed teams to re-animate programs dormant since the 2014 teacher labour dispute. All the participants this year have

things to be proud of, remarked Moscrop volunteer coach and Class of 2016 grad Sade Alexis. “I’m really proud of them … Burnaby field hockey in high school has kind of fallen apart in the last couple of years. Last year it didn’t exist, the year before because of the strike it didn’t happen.The last time it (existed) was when I was in Grade 10.” On a strong second half, the Panthers proved too much to handle thanks to goals from Nicole Morneau and Simran Bains, while the Hyacks were held scoreless by a solid Moscrop defence and netminder Maria Preoteasa. Joining Morneau on the allstar team was teammate Mireta Strandberg-Salmon. “In the first half I don’t think

(Moscrop girls) were as hungry, they expected to win,” said Alexis. “They didn’t know they had to try so hard, so in the second half it was really up to them to put the effort in, (as) I couldn’t coach because I was the umpire.” It took a few field hockey veterans to grab the mantle and put things in order. Morneau scored what stood as the game winner with a hard blast from inside the shooting circle early in the second half. A field hockey veteran in the Burnaby Lakers club, Morneau said the high school team bonded well despite a big gap in playing experience. By last week’s final, even she was feeling some nerves. “I woke up in the morning all excited, just thought about it all

day wanting to play, wanting to win,” said Morneau. “We were just excited to play the game. It means a lot, because there hasn’t been field hockey for the past few years so it feels good to win it.” Alexis said while a lot of players in the league had some experience in the sport, having newcomers come out in good numbers – both New West and Moscrop boasted lineups of 20-plus players – was a pleasant surprise. “I’ve played a lot of field hockey at a lot of different levels so I know what potential looks like. I’ve never coached this age before so it was different – I normally coach little kids. It was interesting to see that, I’d tell them something and they’d automatically learn it really fast,” she said.

Bassetts pace Clan in top-six running finish

The SFU Clan women’s cross country team raced to the best-ever finish in program history last week at the 2016 NCAA Division 2 cross country championships, placing sixth out of 302 schools on the six-kilometre course in St. Leo, Fla. “Wow, I’m so proud of these girls,” said SFU head coach Brit Townsend. “This was the most gruelling course we’ve run on, ever – so many long hills on thick grass, and in the heat. To accomplish what these girls did today was incredible.” The win caps a late-season surge for the women, who were ranked 16th in the national polls two weeks ago. SFU exceeded the prognosticators’ expectations with a string of seasonal bests from each of their top five runners.

The Clan was led by Rebecca Bassett, as the senior earned All-American honours by placing 23rd overall with a time of 21:12.2. Junior and fellow All-American Julia Howley was in 29th spot, finishing in a time of 21:16.4. Junior Miryam Bassett clocked in at 21:38.2, good for 42nd overall, while sophomore Addy Townsend ended up 68th and broke the 22-minute barrier for the first time. In her first and last nationals appearance, senior Reta Dobie placed 99th. Overall, the Clan finished with 210 points in the team standings, behind champion Grand Valley State, which collected the team title with a score of 116 points. The Clan’s sixthplace finish bested the team’s previous best mark, set in 2013 and 2014, where they both

finished seventh.

SFU’S LEWIN DIALED IN FOR RECORD PACE The Simon Fraser University men’s basketball team got some sharp shooting from Tyrell Lewin and J.J. Pankratz, but fell short in an 8067 loss to Concordia in the second day at the Ayres Thanksgiving Classic in Riverside, Cal. Lewin lit it up from the inside, cashing in for a career-high 24 points on a perfect 12-for12 shooting performance.The 12 shots made without a miss put the forward in the GNAC record books with the third-best mark. Pankratz, meanwhile went 6-for-9 from the field and tallied 19 points.The loss leaves SFU with a 2-4 overall record, with their next game Thursday in Seattle.

Continued from page 41 in the seats, despite having a great product with worldclass and many pro players… We’ve got to re-connect with the lacrosse fan base and get the casual fan back into our arenas.” Richardson also views Dal Monte’s experience as a help in the search for league-wide sponsorship opportunities and enhancing the WLA’s profile. “I think one of the reasons my candidacy was considered was that I spent a good portion of my professional (work) life in sports and the sports business,” said Dal Monte. “Sports has always been a passion of mine and it’s great to leverage that with this position.”

I want to make sure we grow and develop the league and build the game together.”
