Peter Julian shoots for NDP leadership Tereza Verenca

tverenca@burnabynow.com

After months of speculation, New WestminsterBurnaby MP Peter Julian has announced he’ll be running in this fall’s NDP leadership race to replace

Tom Mulcair. During a 20-minute speech at the Columbia Theatre in New West on Sunday, Julian shared his vision for Canada, one where “everyone matters and no one is left behind.” “The loss of so many

good jobs, the fraying of the social safety net, record levels of family debt and homelessness; we can do better and the NDP can bring change,” he told the 200-plus-person crowd. “It’s time to make the priority regular folks rather

than the rich and the wellconnected.” Julian, 55, said he’d tackle the inequality gap between the “top one per cent” and the majority of Canadians by ending tax breaks for the wealthy and shutting down tax havens

and “sweetheart deals.” “No matter how wealthy, no matter how well-connected, everyone pays their fair share of taxes,” he said, to a round of applause. The MP also touched on creating a national housing

strategy and ending tuition fees in order to strengthen the economy. Julian said the latter is a fundamental issue to the young voters he’s chatted with and is a cause he thinks many will champion. Continued on page 3

City’s investments hit $1 billion Burnaby’s financial portfolio yielded a tidy $44 million, or 3.62 per cent return for 2016 By Jeremy Deutsch

editorial@burnabynow.com

Anyone in finance will tell you, it’s always a good idea to sock a bit of money away in case of a financial emergency. It looks like the City of Burnaby has taken that advice to heart. For years, the city has held a pretty healthy investment portfolio, which had grown to hundreds of millions of dollars.

And at the end of 2016, the number had topped $1 billion. Specifically, as of Dec. 31, the city investment portfolio totaled $1.1 billion and change. The city’s investments also yielded a tidy $44 million, or 3.62 per cent return for the year. In 2015, the portfolio was at $923 million. The numbers were recently presented in a report at a financial management committee meeting.The re-

port noted approximately $618 million is invested in long-term investments (one year and longer); the balance in shorter term investments that mature within one year. Under the community charter, the city may invest or reinvest money that is not immediately required for expenditures. The City of Burnaby Investment Fund includes restricted funds such as development cost charges and all

other reserve funds. The NOW contacted the three councillors who sit on the financial management committee for comment but did not hear back prior to press deadline. The city’s investments include long-term fixed income products with RBC Capital Markets,TD Securities, CIBC-Wood Gundy, Scotia Capital and Canaccord Genuity. For short-term money market investments, the city

invested with B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan Credit Unions. The report also offered a glimpse of what the city’s investments could do in 2017. “The challenges to maintain positive real returns on investments will become greater in 2017 and future years,” the report stated. “Market volatility has increased due to many unknowns surrounding global security and leadership.This has meant varying degrees

of market volatility, producing swings in price and yield.” The city is projecting an annual yield of three per cent for 2017 and $40.5 million in investment income.The report noted of this investment income amount, $6 million is the current 2017 operating budget contribution (2016 – $6.5 million) with the remainder of funds distributed to reserve funds.

FROM THE FRONT

Julian first in the race for NDP leader Continued from page 1 “Younger Canadians have been pushed aside more than other Canadians by what we’re seeing, an increased concentration of wealth, so what we need to do is talk very clearly about a new direction for this country. And I think that’s where you start to get younger people in politics and interested in change,” We cannot play he told media afthe announceRussian roulette ter ment. Julian made it with our planet clear he was opposed to pipelines and that investing in clean energy would lead to thousands of jobs. “We cannot play Russian roulette with our planet. … Climate change is a profound and disturbing reality that will be accelerated substantially if these projects are built,” he said of the Trans Mountain, Keystone XL and Energy East pipelines. Julian called for “real, meaningful and full reconciliation” with First Nations, Metis and Inuit people. The longtime MP was first elected in 2004 and served as critic for finance, international trade, transportation, person with disabilities and energy, to name a few. He stepped down as House leader last fall to consider the leadership bid. Those in attendance on Sunday included acting Burnaby mayor and Coun. Sav Dhaliwal and Burnaby-Edmonds NDP MLA Raj Chouhan, who was the MC. Chouhan told the NOW he anticipates a tough race between Julian and whoever else decides to put their name forward (Julian is the first). “It’s national. He has to travel from community to community, from province to province. He has to connect with people all across the nation,” said Chouhan. “It’s a challenge, but he has done a wonderful job of organizing the community, and he has met with so many peo-

ple everywhere.” Penny Oyama, a longtime Julian fan, came out to show her support.The Burnaby resident attended the NDP convention last spring, an event she called “a huge eye-opener.” “Groundbreaking discussions took place and Peter was right in the middle of it all, so we can expect some earth-shattering stuff to happen,” she said. Arguably Julian’s biggest fans were also in the crowd – his parents,Terry and Ruth. Both were all smiles as they watched their son deliver his speech. “We’re very proud of him, and we’re excited,” said Terry. “He’s worked for this, I think since he was 12, when he first started talking about the New Democrats,” Ruth chimed in.

Sex offender arrested at Lougheed A high-risk sex offender who vanished during a transfer from Vancouver to Regina was arrested at Lougheed Town Centre after being spotted on a SkyTrain in Burnaby last week. Thirty-six-year-old Antoine Naskathey, a two-time federal offender, was con-

victed in 2001 and 2009 for breaking into homes and sexually assaulting female residents. He is currently on a sixyear long-term supervision order and had been staying at a Vancouver halfway house. He vanished Feb. 8 when

he was supposed to fly to Regina to stay at a new residence in Saskatchewan. Vancouver police alerted the public to his disappearance on Friday at about 6:50 p.m. About an hour later, Transit Police got two reports from SkyTrain riders

saying Naskathey had gotten off at Lougheed station and was headed towards the mall. Mall security helped locate the sex offender, and Transit Police then arrested him without incident. – Cornelia Naylor

Burnaby RCMP has arrested a pair of prolific offenders for allegedly stealing hundreds of dollars from vending machines throughout the Lower Mainland over the past few months. Burnaby’s prolific offender suppression team (POST) initiated an investi-

gation in December after a report of theft from a vending machine at Burnaby 8 Rinks ice arena. Investigators then discovered numerous reports of similar crimes throughout the Lower Mainland, with the suspects using similar methods to steal from vending machines. “Cooperating agencies played a significant role in

bringing this investigation to the successful conclusion we see here today,” Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Daniela Panesar said in a press release. “Prolific offenders often commit crimes in multiple jurisdictions and therefore sharing information is essential.” Vancouver residents Scott Bown, 49, andYasmin Mosly, 34, were arrest-

ed on Jan. 25 and face multiple charges relating to theft from vending machines. “Often these types of offences occur in isolation and are considered minor until thoroughly investigated, and it is not until then, when all the small pieces are put together, that the magnitude of the financial loss is realized,” Panesar said.

A murder charge has been laid in connection with the death of a 30-year-old Japanese student who had been living in Burnaby. Vancouver police found the body of Natsumi Kogawa in Vancouver’s West End on Sept. 28, 2016 after she was first reported missing on Sept. 12. William Schneider, 48, was arrested by RCMP in Vernon on the same day Kogawa’s body was located, and he was charged with indignity to a human body. He has now also been charged with second-degree murder. Before her death, Kogawa, who had been in B.C. studying English, was last seen on Sept. 7 by a friend near the North Burnaby home where she had been staying. Her disappearance was first reported by Vancouver police, but her file was transferred to Burnaby RCMP since she lived in the city. At the time, Mount-

A dog (and cat’s) best friend Biz owner gives Port Moody Fire Department two pet oxygen mask kits BBY

A Burnaby business owner hopes his recent donation will help save the lives of pets in neighbouring Port Moody. Brian Borsoff, owner of Burnaby Auto Body and a Port Moody resident, gave two pet oxygen mask kits to the City of Port Moody fire department last week. Each kit is equipped with three different sized masks that can be used to administer oxygen to cats, dogs and small animals in the event of a fire. Borsoff said he and his wife, Shannon, were inspired to donate the masks after seven dogs and two cats died in a fire in a Burnaby home last May. “Shannon said that would be a good thing, and since we do so much work with police and fire, she said that would be right up (my) alley,” Borsoff said. The kits cost about $600 each, but it was never about

Opinion now OUR VIEW

A tired election tactic that still works Among the flurry of press releases sent our way last week was one from the B.C. government pledging to release $25 million in onetime funding to help clear a backlog of surgeries. The government also threw in the promise of four new MRI scanners to be installed in 2018. We wouldn’t be surprised if everybody in B.C. gets a bonus set of crutches before the election in May.

’Tis the season for provincial giveaways. And who can blame the Liberals? Throwing money and promises of wonderful things to come is just part of greasing the cogs of democracy. That and throwing mud at your opponents is, sadly, what voters have come to accept as the norm. But back to health care. The government’s announcement is the second

injection of funds in the past two years to try and cut down on waiting lists. The government argues that there is an “unprecedented” demand for surgeries in B.C., and it’s got a point. The problem is that this challenge is not new and the government had previously pledged to fix it. And, for some strange reason, other provinces seem to be able to manage their health

care systems better. In a report released last year by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, B.C. ranked near the bottom or last among all provinces in completing common surgeries in a reasonable time. And, if you think that info is biased because it comes from a left-wing group, think again. A survey of Canadian doctors conducted by the right-

wing Fraser Institute in 2016 found MRI wait times in B.C. are almost double the national average of 11 weeks. NDP health critic Judy Darcy has rightly criticized the government’s wait-until-it’s-an-emergency manner of funding health care in B.C. Darcy says, “Instead of one-time funding, they need to invest in health care over the long haul to seri-

ously tackle this problem.” She’s right, of course. But now the pattern has been set, and it seems to work for the Liberals. Taxpayers complain about waiting lists, and when it reaches critical mass, the government acts as if it’s doing everybody a favour by putting taxpayer dollars into the system. More grease, more votes.

MY VIEW DERMOD TRAVIS

Mudslinging has begun

Splat. It would seem British Columbia’s 41st general election is well underway. The uproar this week over news that someone may have hacked the B.C. Liberal party’s website is a harbinger of things to come, so fasten your seat belts. Lost in the charges and counter-charges over the alleged hack is a characteristic most hackers share. Any hacker worth their salt doesn’t want “the hackee” to know they’ve been hacked. It’s a risk losing your hacking-licence offense.They certainly wouldn’t give it up for a list of 100 or so names. When individuals tied to the Russian government allegedly hacked their way into the computers of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, they didn’t do a celebratory high-five and walk away, they stuck around. The Liberal party attempted to muddy the waters even more this week by claiming that one of the computers that may have tried to hack its website is located somewhere in the legislature, at least according to its IP address. Call it the fog of cyberspace. IP addresses don’t always identify the computer that a hacker sat in front of while they were hacking away, sometimes they only identify a computer hijacked by the hacker to hack. More than 70,000 pages of the Liberal party’s website have been copied by at least one perpetrator, since 2000. Most of the pages have since

been deleted from the party’s site, but they all live on and are publicly available at the click of a mouse. The San Francisco-based Wayback Machine – a digital Internet archive – routinely takes snapshots of websites, including the Liberal party’s and has done so 11 times since the beginning of December. As they say, the internet never forgets. If the mudslinging has commenced, what else can we look forward to in the coming weeks? Newspeak, spinning and severe fact rationing. It can seem like a cross between living in a parallel universe and the film Groundhog Day. The 2017 Port MoodyCoquitlam provincial election blog has been tracking the government’s growing list of “number one” priorities. In 2014, Premier Christy Clark tweeted that class composition in the province’s schools was the number one priority because “students’ needs come first.”A year later “the top priority was and remains the development of LNG in B.C.,” according to a Clark quote in a B.C. Chamber of Commerce Public Affairs Update. Last March, after a clean energy conference, Clark said “securing federal cash to upgrade the hydro grid between B.C. and Alberta was the number one priority of her government.” A month later at the Council of Forest Industries’ Continued on page 7

Opinionnow GUEST COLUMN

Get ready for mudslinging and political spin Continued from page 6 convention, “achieving a softwood lumber agreement was the number one priority.” It would seem number one priorities shift based on the audience. Using the hashtag #bc first, the government also likes to boast about being number one, but never about B.C. being first in Canada for part-time jobs, first for highest housing costs or MSP premiums. Then there will be the “defending the indefensible” spin or “it’s OK for our party, but not yours.” Case in point, this quote: “He was pretty young then. He’s probably matured over the last four years. He’s apologized unreservedly.” Damage control over a back-dated memo or rac-

ists tweets? It would be the words of Housing Minister Rich Coleman, co-chair of the B.C. Liberal election campaign, last year defending then-candidate Randy Rinaldo over a series of tweets in 2012 and 2013.

White lies are being trotted out An apology was good enough for Coleman. Should all politicians be so forgiving. White lies are being trotted out.The other day, Coleman erroneously claimed on CKNW that B.C. has the third lowest

hydro rates in North America. Not true, according to Coleman’s own source material. Out of 11 Canadian cites, Vancouver has the fifth lowest rates in one model and seventh lowest in two others. In 2007,Vancouver was second lowest in all three. As former NewYork senator, the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, once said: “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not their own facts.” So sit back and get ready for some good old-fashioned mudslinging not seen in these parts for some time, a strong dose of doublestandards in the political spin department and a few guffaws over fact-checking.

City now MASJID AL-SALAAM

Mosque opens doors to show its gratitude Tereza Verenca

tverenca@burnabynow.com

Open your heart and mind. That was the message imamYahya Momla told some 200 people at a gathering at the Masjid al-Salaam and Education and Centre last week. The Burnaby mosque held the appreciation event to thank the community for the support it has shown since the Quebec shooting, which killed six people and injured 19 others. More than 50 people were gathered for evening prayers at the Quebec Islamic Cultural Centre when shots were fired on Jan. 29.The alleged gunman is Alexandre Bissonnette. Momla told the NOW that since the tragedy, a host of people have reached out “in different capacities.” “Members of the local,

federal and provincial governments, elected officials, they reached out and expressed their support. Many of them were there last night.They made sure we

Hopefully we can rise above our differences and see that we do have a lot in common.

felt safe and they made sure it was understood we can count on them for their support,” he said. Momla added local residents, many of whom are strangers, have shown what community is all about. “We don’t know them

personally, but they brought flowers, they were leaving cards at the door, in the mailbox. Many of them are anonymous, we don’t know who to thank,” he said, noting the shooting has not affected worship attendance. During his speech at the appreciation event, Momla talked about the importance of listening to one another. “And by listening, I mean actually listening, in every aspect of the word. Hopefully by listening, we can understand each other as people.We’re never going to agree on everything, but hopefully we can rise above our differences and see that we do have a lot in common,” said the 27-year-old. Some of the folks in attendance included Coun. Sav Dhaliwal, Kathy Corrigan, NDP MLA for Burnaby-Deer Lake and Peter Julian, NDP MP for New Westminster-Burnaby.

Burnaby artist’s work featured at library Burnaby Art Gallery’s off-site exhibition pays tribute to the work of Ingeborg Raymer The Burnaby Art Gallery is paying tribute to the longstanding careers of two local artists with its new off-site shows at local libraries. At the Bob Prittie (Metrotown) branch of Burnaby Public Library, visitors can check out Remembering Ingeborg Raymer:Work from the Malaspina Printshop Archive. The exhibition includes 14 etchings created by the well-known Burnaby artist, working at the Malaspina Printshop in the late 1970s. Many of the prints were made when the Printshop was still located at Mathers House in Deer Lake Park. Later works were made at

Malaspina’s Pender Street location. Raymer was well-known in the city as both an artist and a teacher. She taught in Burnaby schools and at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, and she also gave private lessons at her home studio on Government Road. She was a founding member of the Burnaby Artists’ Guild and showed her work across the continent and overseas. The library is at 6100 Willingdon Ave. In North Burnaby, at the McGill library branch, visitors can explore Robert R. Reid: ‘Allied Arts’ Affirmative.

The exhibition is designed to complement an exhibition of printed materials by Reid that are being shown on the third and seventh floors of Simon Fraser University’s W.A.C. Bennett Library until the end of March.That showing includes works generated by Reid between 1949 and 2017. The McGill branch exhibition includes the catalogue Reid designed for Burnaby’s 1961 National Print Show – the first catalogue produced for what would later become the Burnaby Art Gallery – as well as examples of his current work as a digital experi-

performance with a mark of 96 per cent, winning him the national gold medal for the highest mark in the country in 2016. Interested in hearing more from this impressive young talent? Tickets for his recital are $15, or $10 for students and seniors. Call the Shadbolt at 604291-6864 or Jean Brown at 604-936-0217 to reserve, or email jean.brown.piano. teacher@gmail.com.

Neighbourhood House holds Diamond Ball Tereza Verenca

tverenca@burnabynow.com

Burnaby Neighbourhood House’s biggest fundraising event of the year is set for Feb. 18 and there only a few tickets left. Organizers are putting the finishing touches on the 13th annual Diamond Ball Gala, which includes an auction, dinner, a show and a diamond draw.This year’s theme is Experience Polynesia. The Neighbourhood House hopes to raise $50,000, according to the non-profit’s executive director, Antonia Beck.The money goes towards keeping the doors open at its north and south locations, and funding programs that don’t always get federal or provincial dollars. “Often we get funding and they’re very much earmarked for a certain purpose, but the funds we raise, we can allocate them to wherever the greatest need is,” said Beck. She pointed to a num-

ber of underfunded initiatives, including the charity’s Seniors Together Program, which runs Wednesdays and Fridays and provides games, English conversation circles and a light lunch. There’s also the community kitchen program, which brings together low-income families to have lunch and prepare healthy meals to take home, noted Beck. “Community engagement is an important piece of our work and we want to involve people. As we involve people as volunteers, the Neighbourhood House becomes theirs and the programs are theirs,” she said. Beck added Burnaby Neighbourhood House’s Sharing Cultures Dinners are also partly funded and need a top-up. About once a month, a committee of local residents organize a dinner around a specific culture (last month was Colombian night). The Neighbourhood House typically raises about $40,000 each year though the gala, but a little more is

Community engagement is an important piece of our work, and we want to involve people. needed for operating North House, at its new location at 4908 Hastings St., Beck said. Since 2014, North House was at the corner of Willingdon and Hastings Street. Because that building was slated for demolition, the developer offered Burnaby Neighbourhood House free rent until it was time to move. “It was a great opportunity.We had two years of free rent to really build community connections and give ourselves a presence in North Burnaby,” Beck said. But now that they’re in a new building paying market rent, operational costs have gone up, she added, as staff try to do “more with less.” Having a Neighbourhood House in that part of town is definitely needed, accord-

ing to Beck. “There really isn’t a lot of resources available in North Burnaby that are free and accessible. Often,

people think North Burnaby (is) well off economically, but there is a lot of need. There’s lots of rentals and lone-parent families,” she explained. “Whether they’re new immigrants or are just new to the city, it’s really hard to meet friends in the city and I think the Neighbourhood House kind of does that intentionally and provides that opportunity.”

There are only 30 tickets left to the Diamond Ball Gala ($100 per person or $900 for a table).They can be purchased online at burnabynh.ca or by calling 604-431-0400. The event is at the Firefighters Banquet and Conference Centre, at 6515 Bonsor Ave.

Mindfulness can help to manage chronic pain HEALTHWISE

editorial@burnabynow.com

In recent columns, we explored the evolutionary development and potential of the human brain and how new approaches can use this knowledge to better manage our emotions and chronic pain. The first key to mastering chronic pain and enhance well-being is to recognize how our thoughts, emotions and behaviour (including

healthy eating, exercise and sleep) influence our experience of pain. By adopting and practising more adaptive approaches, we can increase our comfort, improve our function and again enjoy more of the activities we value most in our lives. Mindfulness is one of the practices that has been shown with practice to improve chronic pain and the suffering associated with it. Mindfulness helps us to centre our minds, increase our awareness and calm the nervous system that mod-

ulates how we experience pain and other sensations. The practice of mindfulness teaches us a less reactive approach to the rest of our lives.We become open to accept and experience every aspect of our lives, our selves and our sensations, without clinging, aversion or judgment. We begin meditation by spending 15 or 20 minutes each day just sitting in a quiet place in a comfortable position.We turn our attention to the natural flow and sensations of the breath

without trying to control it in any way.This becomes a safe and calming anchor that we can return to at any time.

This becomes a safe and calming anchor

We can then turn our attention to a second anchor for our attention – the soundscape.These are the

sounds as they arise in our immediate environment.We simply attend to the arising and disappearance of different sounds as they come and go from our awareness.We don’t have to label or identify each sound. We simply remain aware of them as they arise, change and disappear. We can centre our awareness on a third anchor – the different physical sensations in the body, perhaps the pressure at points of contact, warmth, coolness, vibrations, pulsations, tin-

gling and even pain.We can move awareness to different areas of the body, and if a sensation such as pain in one part of the body is difficult to manage, we can shift our attention elsewhere, to the part of the body that is most comfortable or back to the anchor of the breath – or we can move our attention back to one of the first two anchors – the breath or sound.

us or we pass through them. We can be mindful when walking, attending to the sensations of each step, the sounds and pressures on the feet and the movement of the legs.This becomes a mindful anchor from which what we hear, see, feel and think arises in our open and accepting awareness. Mindfulness can be practised while eating, attending to the taste and texture of each bite of food; swimming, attending to the sensations of buoyancy, flowing water on the surface of the skin and rich sounds of moving water and air; and even driving. Mindfulness only begins with meditation.When you apply the healthy attitudes of non-reactive acceptance, gratitude and compassion to everything in your life throughout each day, you will discover a deeper level of peace, happiness and meaning. Mindfulness when diligently practised can bring

serenity to your mind and body throughout each day – an open, accepting and nonreactive approach to your life. It can foster in you greater compassion for others and yourself. So mindfulness is not something that we practise in a quiet place for a few minutes every day. It is an approach and a perspective that will transform our minds and help us manage difficult emotions and experiences throughout each day and over the course of our lives. In upcoming columns, we’ll explore other new approaches to chronic pain. DavidicusWong is a family physician and his Healthwise columns appear regularly in this paper.

Real hoop season starts now Dan Olson

dolson@burnabynow.com

The next seven days will decide what kind of year it’s been for members of seven local senior boys basketball teams. On the heels of a Burnaby-New West league final, the various combatants are steeling themselves for the next biggest challenge, as the Lower Mainland championships kick off this week. For league victor the Byrne Creek Bulldogs, the route to a 3-A provincial tournament berth is both invigorating and a trifle imposing. Topping crosstown rival Burnaby South 90-79 in the final last Thursday was not only about bragging rights and a banner; it also maintained valuable momentum heading into the Lower Mainland playoffs, which officially started yesterday (past the NOW’s deadline). Led by a 40-point performance from Grade 10 guard Bithow Wan and 20 points from Abdul Bangura, Byrne Creek shook off a strong South start and built up a solid margin in the third quarter en route to a second straight league crown. Like the independent division St. Thomas More Knights, the Bulldogs will be vying for one of four spots, which guarantee provincial tourney floor time at the Langley Events Centre next month. Just win the next two games and a toptwo Lower Mainland result is locked up. On the flip side, a couple of losses puts the season and those B.C. hoop dreams on ice. “It’s about not getting complacent,” remarked Byrne Creek coach Bal Dhillon of the next stage. “The post-season is literally a new season. ...We played (potential first-game opponent) McNair early in the year, like early December, and got the win but they are not the same team. They’ve been ranked most of the year and they have improved (since December) and hopefully we’ve improved.” Earning all-star honours in the league playoffs were Wan and Bangura, South’s C.J. Campbell and Aleks Kalajdzic, New West’s Luca Cuk and Burnaby North’s Ryan Hum. Byrne Creek plays either McNair or Point Grey tonight (Wednesday), 7:30 p.m. at Byrne Creek. Lower Mainland No. 1-seed St.Thomas More, meanwhile, hosts the winner between Richmond and Gladstone at 7:30 p.m. The Knights head into this weekend off a pair of exhibition wins, besting 4-A’s No. 7-ranked Killarney 79-58, and 3-A ranked No. 4 Steveston-London 74-55. Burnaby South shifts its focus to the 4-A playoffs, and plays the winner of Tuesday’s St. George/Moscrop game tonight (Wednesday) at 7:30 p.m. at South. Also competing for a possible B.C. berth are No. 8 seed Burnaby North, who played David Thompson in Tuesday’s opener, and Burnaby Mountain, who faced Winston Churchill. A win for Burnaby North would see them play No. 4-ranked Kitsilano tonight (Wednesday), while Mountain would meet No. 8 Vancouver College.

Steelers fired up for playoff march Grandview launches playoffsWednesday against Richmond in best-of-seven series

Dan Olson

dolson@burnabynow.com

The Grandview Steelers are feeling confident but not cocky heading into the first round of the Pacific Junior B Hockey League playoffs. The best-of-seven series against the Richmond Sockeyes kicks off tonight (Wednesday), 7:15 p.m. at the Burnaby Winter Club (BWC). “There are no easy match-ups in this league,” remarked Grandview head coach Stevan Matic. “You can’t look past anyone. We played Richmond close all year and feel confident that if we work hard, we can advance.” In head-to-head play during the season, the Steelers have a

3-2-1 record against the Sockeyes, with the most recent result a 6-1 hammering. However, their other two wins were of the one-goal variety, while the two losses to Richmond were by shutout. If anything, Grandview does have some momentum, and motivation, on their side. The Steelers ended the regular season by taking a pair off North Vancouver, 4-2 and 6-1, the latter played Monday as a makeup game for a game called off due to last month’s snowstorm. They also plastered Port Moody 7-1, putting Grandview on a three-game winning streak entering the playoffs. The team’s veterans also carry with them memories of last

year’s underdog run, which saw the team march all the way to the league final before running out of gas, losing to Mission. “I think it’s not hard to have a sour taste in your mouth after you get that far and come away short of your goal,” said Matic, who took over the head coaching duties at the start of the season. “I think our team has progressed nicely over the year.We had a midseason bump but are playing well at the right time.” The club finished tied for first place in the Tom Shaw Conference with a 28-9-2-5 record, although the Delta Icehawks were given the edge due to more wins. That factor doesn’t dampen the strides the team has made over the last few months, Ma-

tic said. “We both finished with 63 points and I’m not looking at it as finishing second.We had fewer losses (than Delta), so I’m not sure if one team deserves to be put ahead of the other.” Matic said netminder Matteo Paler-Chow, who posted a 1713-2 record, will carry the ball in the playoffs. “(Paler-Chow) is a competitor.We have a lot of confidence in Cale Dolan and he’s done a great job. But we will start (Paler-Chow); he competes day in, day out.” The series continues Thursday, 7 p.m. in Richmond. Game 3 goes Sunday, 4 p.m. at BWC, while the series resumes Feb. 20 in Richmond.

Big-time rally keeps Wildcats’ drive alive The Burnaby Central Wildcats are taking their runner-up status in the Burnaby-New West senior girls basketball league seriously. The Wildcats kicked off the Lower Mainland tournament on Saturday with a thrilling 61-60 come-from-behind victory over the John Oliver Jokers in an elimination game. Their year was on the line again last night (Tuesday, after the NOW’s deadline) against honourable mentioned Carson Graham. In Saturday’s win, the Wildcats stared at a 28-9 gulf early in the third quarter and turned the tide, thanks to a yeoman-like performance from guard Jayden Pineda. Com-

ing off the bench, Pineda provided vital energy as Central stormed the Jokers’ zone. Jennifer Mascardo counted 17 points and 12 rebounds along with six steals. Jalynne Huynh scored 16 points and picked up five boards, while Christine Lin added 14 points and six rebounds. “It was fairly resilient to do what they did,” said head coach Chris Ducharme. “(John Oliver) got off to a good start and out-rebounded us, but we just put the pressure on (in the second half).” Burnaby outscored the Jokers 52-32 in a spirited final 15 minutes.

Yesterday’s must-win game against Carson Graham was one of those potential redeeming games that coaches love, Ducharme noted. A year ago, the two met in the Lower Mainland playoffs and the North Shore rival won in overtime, ending Central’s season. “I think the type of style we played (against Oliver) matches well for Carson Graham,” remarked Central head coach Chris Ducharme. “We’re underdogs, so there is no pressure on us.” In the Burnaby-New West league final, the Wildcats fell 86-59 to New Westminster.

LOWE, Gordon Robert “Bob” On December 22, 2016, Gordon Robert “Bob” Lowe of New Westminster, British Columbia, passed away at the age of 71 years. Bob was the only child of Catherine L. Lowe (nee Biswanger) and Gordon H. Lowe, who predeceased him. Bob was a happy and enthusiastic youngster, who dealt with extensive health issues all his life. A good man of honesty, loyalty and integrity, Bob will be thought of often with fondness and prayers by those close to him. He leaves many cousins to remember him: Doreen Jones (nee Taylor) of Calgary; Marilynne Lambert (nee Taylor) of Bonnyville, Alberta; and James Taylor of Victoria. Bob’s other three cousins predeceased him: Terry Patterson (nee Dash) of Winnipeg and Georgina Loucks (nee Dash) of Dauphin, both in 2016; and Stanley Robert Dash of Calgary in 1998. These cousins also leave spouses, many children, and grandchildren. Helen Biswanger (Granny), the matriarch of this family, passed away on Easter Sunday in 1973. Cremation has taken place. A private service will be held in Calgary at a later date. His final resting place at a later date will be at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Calgary near his beloved parents and Granny. May he rest in peace with those he loved.
