City wants unpaid ﬁnes added to tax bill By Tereza Verenca
Unpaid city fines could one day be part of your property tax bill. At its meeting Monday night, Burnaby city council endorsed three resolutions that will be submitted to the Union of B.C. Mu-
nicipalities convention later this year. One of them attempts to crack down on the number of residents who don’t settle their fines. Burnaby wants to add an amendment to the Community Charter that will classify unpaid fines as “special fees” – fees to be collected as property taxes, includ-

would ensure illegal cannabis operators pay their fines and don’t just ignore them. (In Vancouver, tickets for unlicensed shops have exceed $1 million, according to multiple media outlets.) Dhaliwal added he’s hopeful the city’s resolution will be endorsed by the UBCM.

The Burnaby Green Party wants to freeze property taxes at 2018 levels for two years if it gets elected on Oct. 20. The election promise was made on March 7 during a town hall at Lochdale Hall. “We believe the City of Burnaby is over-taxing residents,” said teacher and Metrotown housing advocate Rick McGowan, who ran for the B.C. Green Party in Burnaby-Deer Lake in last year’s provincial election. “They get income from a variety of sources, including government grants, sales of service, sales of land, those kind of things.” Property taxes in Burnaby are set to rise by 1.5 per cent this year.The last time the increase was below two per cent was in 2014 (a municipal election year), when it was at 1.97 per cent. The property tax increase was 2.95 per cent in 2017, 2.65 per cent in 2016 and 2.98 per cent in 2015.The city anticipates the rate will increase three per cent annually from 2019 to 2022.

Opinion now OUR VIEW
An early deposit on your Burnaby vote
Almost three weeks ago, we ran a front-page story headlined “Burnaby holds tax hike to 1.5 per cent.” The story detailed that the 2018 tax hike was about half the average increase of the last three years and half of what the hike is anticipated to be in each of the next four years. The story also noted that the last time there was such a low tax hike was in 2014 – which, like 2018, was a municipal election year. Here’s that info:
Annual Burnaby property tax increases (in per cent): 2014: 1.97 2015: 2.98 2016: 2.65 2017: 2.95 2018: 1.5 2019 to 2022 (projected): 3.0 per year
Coun. Pietro Calendino said: “I don’t think we’ve seen a 1.5 per cent increase in a number of years in Burnaby.We worked hard to get it down.” Calendino said increased revenues from new devel-
opment in the town centres resulted in revenues that allowed the city to reduce the tax hike. But, really, is it a coincidence that the council who wants your support and vote in the upcoming municipal election in October has also decided to keep the tax hike down in the same year? We suppose we cannot prove the financial decision had any political thought behind it.We doubt that someone from the finan-
Let’s face it, the average voter will gladly take any low tax hike
cial department or an elected official will actually confirm that’s a key part of the reason for keeping the tax hike down this year. And, of course, a reasonable person could presume that a coun-
cil up for election would want to impress upon its electorate how fiscally responsible it is, and keeping taxes down is one way to do that. And who can blame the politicians? They want to get re-elected, and, since they’re the only game in town, they can make decisions that put the very best fiscal spin on things. Let’s face it, the average voter will gladly take any low tax hike to the bank
and, perhaps, to the ballot box. And, after all, the Greens are now promising a tax freeze for the next two years, saying the city has been over-taxing its residents. So, it’s basically a bidding war for your vote. If that’s the case, perhaps it will encourage voters to look at more than just tax hikes when they go to the ballot box in October. We can only hope.
MY VIEW KEITH BALDREY
Politics plays out at the gas pump Don’t look now, but the cost to fill up your car at the pump may eventually be tied to next year’s provincial election in Alberta.That’s because Alberta Premier Rachel Notley has doubled down and has matched her chief political rival in the jingoistic sweepstakes over the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion. United Conservative leader Jason Kenney has been saying for months that if elected premier, his government would reduce, or even completely ban, oil shipments to British Columbia if the B.C. government were to attempt to halt the pipeline project. Last week, Notley’s government made the same promise in the Throne Speech. She says her government is preparing legislation, to be tabled fairly soon, that will lay out a plan to reduce oil shipments from the province.That Throne Speech evoked memories of former Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed, who limited oil shipments to the East in response to the federal government’s National Energy Plan. Lougheed won that battle, and the federal government eventually backed off from trying to grab much of Alberta’s oil and gas revenues. Clearly, both Notley and Kenney think they can win a similar fight with B.C. It’s not entirely clear whether Alberta is on firm legal ground. Section 92(A) of the Constitution clearly gives provinces the right to control the export of their non-renewable resources such as oil and gas, but it
also stipulates that any such action “may not authorize or provide for discrimination in prices or in supplies exported to another part of Canada.” But any move by Alberta to restrict oil shipments could wreak economic havoc while the courts sort out the jurisdictional arguments. Drivers in Metro Vancouver got a taste of what a decrease of oil supplies can do to the price at the pump. Prices recently jumped to around $1.50 a litre after the Parkland (formerly Chevron) refinery in Burnaby shut down for a few weeks for maintenance. About 60 per cent of all petroleum products used in Metro Vancouver are delivered through the existing Trans-Mountain pipeline. Energy analysts think the price at the pump could easily jump to a mind-boggling $3 a litre in a fairly short period if Alberta deploys its nuclear option. Now, the threats coming from Notley and Kenney are, for now, just that: threats. I think Notley is content to let the threat linger for a while before actually carrying through on it. But as that election draws closer, Notley will need to be seen as fighting for Alberta’s interests. And if gas prices skyrocket because Alberta turns off the tap, you can be sure the debate over the Kinder Morgan project will shift from tanker traffic and pipeline spills to an old-fashioned argument about what it costs to fill up the car. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Valuable cockatoo swiped The owner of a Middlegate Mall pet store was worried about the health of a fragile young cockatoo stolen in March. “I hope it is being properly fed. It’s a good bird,” said Fishbowl Pet Shop owner Ken Lee. He said the bird required special care and needed to be fed twice a day. It wasn’t the first attempt to swipe the white cockatoo, valued at $2,000. A day earlier, a person had run out of the store after an employee caught him trying to force open the cage, which sat on Lee’s desk at the store.

CANADIAN COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER AWARD 2013

Trudeau can’t afford to alienate his voters Dear Editor: A recent poll indicated that 50 per cent of Canadians oppose the expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline and the attendant increase in tanker traffic carrying Liquid Tar Sands (LTS) over the Salish Sea. I would hazard a guess that the two politicians who should be most worried by this statistic would be Rachel Notley and Justin Trudeau. In the case of Ms. Notley, she’s in a tough situation given a united right in her province. Her core or base support is likely on the left of the political spectrum, and she is likely alienating those folks with her tough talk and indifference to the environmental concerns that surround this project. Mr. Trudeau would seem to have a better situation, but look closely. His high rating in popularity polls is likely based on the support of young voters and women. Youth may think Mr. Trudeau charismatic, but when it comes election time next year, most of our youth won’t vote. Those young people who do will be engaged in the political process; they’ll genuinely care about issues. Young people who voted for Mr. Trudeau in 2015 will see the lack of meaningful environmental review of the Kinder Morgan expansion as one more failure to live up to a commitment he made. Women in Canada may be impressed by Mr. Trudeau’s efforts to put his feminist ideals into
practice. But women in Canada never vote in a block and they care about all the issues. I wonder if women aren’t even more likely to resent failures to live up to promises and commitments made in past. I would guess that a high proportion of the 50 per cent of Canadians who oppose the expansion project voted for Mr. Trudeau in 2015 when he promised new and meaningful environmental review mechanisms. He failed to deliver on this. That one failure may not be enough to change votes, but it’s not the only one. 2019 will be another “first past the post” election, and Mr. Trudeau will really need that 50 per cent of Canadians to support him if he wants to keep his job.

City now Got unpaid ﬁnes? City wants to add them to your tax bill Continued from page 1 for other cities as well.” The City of Burnaby did not respond to a request for comment by press deadlines.The NOW has asked how much money the city had in unpaid fees in 2017; what kind of tickets were residents not paying; how often the city proceeds to small claims court and to collection agencies for fee collection; and how do renters fit into the equation. According to a staff report, going to small claims court can be “a particularly time-consuming, costly and onerous process” for local governments. “This is an issue experienced by municipalities across the province,” read the report. Streamlining the current court online filing system for municipal fines could be improved, stated the document, so that multiple fines outstanding against one person could be filed together rather than separately as currently required. “This simple change would reduce both the time and filing administration costs (charged by the courts for each filing) borne by cities, and correspondingly increase the rate of fine collection.” The other two UBCM resolutions adopted by council on Monday deal with the Agricultural Land
Reserve – introducing tax reforms that prioritize and promote the use of ALR lands for farming uses instead of residential – and consumer protection for
public institutions when they’re required to buy and maintain software packages. This year’s UBCM convention is set for Sept. 10 to 14 in Whistler. No. VLC-S-S-179697 Vancouver Registry

RCMP headquarters set to get a $1.2-million makeover Property tax system also set for an upgrade in 2018 provisional budget Grant Granger
It won’t be turned into a HGTV reno show, but a $1.2-million upgrade to Burnaby’s RCMP headquarters will “make it a little more livable.” The space that used to be occupied by police dispatch will be converted into offices for supervisory staff, according to a report to city council last month. The area became available when Burnaby switched its dispatch over to the region’s E-COMM services in 2013. In addition, upgrades will be made to the records area, the switchboard desk will be relocated to the front counter and the traffic ticket desk to the traffic section. Along with new furniture and cabinets, the estimated cost for
the project is $950,000. Another $120,000 will be spent on increasing the size of the room where weapons, portable radios and other equipment are stored.

Theatre company breaks down barriers with new production A Burnaby actor is centre stage in a production by Realwheels Theatre. Jake Anthony is part of the cast for SEQUENCE, an award-winning Canadian play by Arun Lakra. The science thriller explores the intersection of math, nature and spirituality through four characters – played by Anthony, Byron Noble, Krista Skwarok and Amy Amantea. In SEQUENCE, a professor confronts a student who has defied probability by taking a multiple choice exam only Jake Anthony to get evactor ery answer wrong. Meanwhile, the “Luckiest Man Alive,” with his uncanny ability to predict the winner of the Super Bowl coin toss for 20 years running, is confronted by a young woman who claims to know his secret. “SEQUENCE explores questions of determinism versus free will via two stories that interweave like a strand of DNA,” a press release says. This production of SEQUENCE will be the first performed by an integrated cast, featuring two actors who live with a disability alongside two able-bodied actors. “This casting speaks to Realwheels Theatre’s ongoing commitment to fostering interchange between mainstream and disability arts sectors,” the release says.

Lower Mainland school districts are snapping up education assistants faster than post-secondary institutions can graduate them, according to local school officials, so the Burnaby district has decided to train its own. Starting in July, the district will offer a full-time education assistant diploma program at the Schou Education Centre on Canada Way through its community and continuing education department. “Qualified education assistants are currently in high demand in school districts throughout British Columbia,” states the department’s website. “Our graduates are qualified to work in public and private schools, childcare centers and community drop-in centres.” A 2016 Supreme Court of Canada decision that restored class-size and classcomposition provisions back
into B.C. teachers’ collective agreement is behind the current shortage of EAs in the Lower Mainland, according to assistant superintendent Heather Hart. “When we had the change in contract language, reverting back to 2002, we needed to provide more educational assistants,” Hart told the NOW. Training its own EAs will give Burnaby an advantage over others looking to hire, she said. “They’re doing their practicums in our schools,” Hart said. “We’re training them in what we believe is important, and we also get a heads up on hiring them because we can look at the students moving along and get in front of other district that might be in line to hire them.” An in-house training program will also give the district a chance to tailor-make its graduates, according to Hart. “We’ve designed it our-

When asked about the possible existence of stigmas, the seller or licensee representing the seller, may answer the question directly or decline to answer and advise the buyer to conduct their own investigation.

I heard that our old paper money like thousand dollar bills are no longer going to have any value. Is this true? Will there not still be collector value?
Currently all Canadian banknote issued since 1867 are legal tender. In the Liberal JIM RICHARDSON Federal budget there was a mention of making all older currency no longer legal tender. What this means is that you would no longer be able to spend it but you could take it to the bank. I believe that this is the prelude to demonetizing the bills like they do in most countries in Europe. Currently many older notes in used condition have a collector value a bit above the face value , with new condition notes being much more valuable. If the bills are demonetized, most notes from 1954 and newer will need to be uncirculated to have any value. I am recommending that people call their MP and complain about this change to our currency.

Burnaby South rides pendulum to B.C. title
Rebels capture school’s third provincial crown with series of momentum swings against higher-ranked rivals
By Dan Olson
It was a team-building experience that metamorphosed into a championship run. What was launched in November, after months of prep work, would look nothing like the machine roaring at a fever pitch last week in Langley. Across a yellow brick road of sweat, dreams and lesson-serving knocks, the Burnaby South Rebels had constructed a championship. The senior boys squad was crowned B.C. 4-A basketball champions after beating the Semiahmoo Totems 80-72 on Saturday before a boisterous crowd at the Langley Events Centre. A fluid start that saw No. 8-seed Burnaby lead by 10 after one quarter was tested more than a few times as the No. 6-rated Totems pulled within five on two
occasions in the second quarter, including 34-29 at halftime. But by continuing to build on that lead, the Rebels held a 59-48 advantage with 10 minutes remaining.The biggest resistance offered up came when Semiahmoo closed it within eight points, before Burnaby countered with an 11-3 run to put the icing on the school’s third-ever B.C. title and first since 1979. Senior forward Jusuf Sehic finished with an impressive 50 per cent mark from the field and was voted the tourney’s MVP. “One of my teammates, Noah Pastrana, was joking around I think in the quarter-final, he was like, ‘You know that if we win you’re going to win MVP, right?’ I just kind of brushed it off,” Sehic said. “Leading all the way up to and the end of the game, I was not thinking about it at all. I was just focused on getting my team
the win, because I wouldn’t care about getting an MVP trophy or first team all-star if we got second or third, right? “I was more focused on bringing a provincial banner to our school and making our coaches and families proud.” Every team member did just that, as the Rebels depended upon a balanced attack and big defensive stops from an array of contributors.Their foundation was firmed up through a week of hard practice after the Lower Mainlands, where they needed a pair of must-win games to earn the district’s third and final berth to the B.C.s. Nothing came easy for the Burnaby South boys. There was no better evidence than the quarter-final, where after starting the tourney with an 80-60 win over Lord Tweedsmuir, the Rebels lined up against the
No. 1 Oak Bay Bays. As the underdogs corralled a 14-point lead at halftime, they witnessed a tsunami from the Bays, as the Island champs threw out a 22-0 run to power ahead 44-36.
We knew (Oak Bay) were No. 1 going in, but as quoted by one of our coaches, Why not us?
Instead of folding, Burnaby South reclaimed its footing and breached the tide. By the end of the third quarter the Rebels trimmed a nine-point deficit to just
three and found within themselves confidence to grab more. They replied with the first 14 points of the final frame for a 6251 lead and galloped to a shocking 78-66 decision. “In the locker room, we knew not a lot of people expected us to win, but we were going to give our absolute best,” said Sehic. “We respected (Oak Bay) but we were not afraid of them at all.We knew they were No. 1 going in, but as quoted by one of our coaches (Dave Smith),Why not us?” Sehic scored 17 against the Bays, with Pastrana tallying 14 and Stefano Benedetto adding 13. They defeated Island No. 2 Belmont, 70-55, in Friday’s semifinal. Sasha Vujisic earned a spot on the first all-star team, while Grade 11 shooting guard Jiordano Khan was named to the second all-star squad. Continued on page 21

SFU quartet cracks top-4 fourth in a time of 11:30.67. Western State was the runaway winner, more than 12 seconds ahead of the placers. After Bassett set a strong pace in the first group, Bluschke muscled her way through to a personal best on her 400-metre leg. Mussatto
moved SFU from seventh to fourth and handed off the baton to Howley, who maintained that position through to the finish line. A disqualification by Adams State moved SFU up a spot.The Clan women were ranked No. 4 entering nationals.

Looking for a new home? Start here.
B.C. home sales predicted to drop – but prices to keep rising Just because home sales are slowing and mortgage rates are climbing, you shouldn’t expect any home price corrections, according to the latest forecast by the B.C. Real Estate Association (BCREA). The association reported March 9 that residential resales on the MLS® are forecast to be 8.6 per cent lower this year than in 2017, reaching a full-year total of 94,855 units. That would be the first time in three years that sales total less than 100,000, but is still higher than the 10-year average sales total of 84,800 homes. BCREA also predicted that sales would drop further – but only very slightly – in 2019 to 94,025 units. “Housing demand in the province is expected to moderate this year and in 2019,” said Cameron Muir, chief economist at BCREA. “More stringent mortgage qualifications and rising interest rates will further erode affordability and household purchasing power.”
The news follows the monthly board statistics that were issued March 2, which saw Metro Vancouver’s detached home sales 39.4 per cent below the 10-year sales average for February and sales of attached houses such as townhomes, row homes and duplexes at 6.8 per cent lower than the 10-year average.
RATE RISES ON THE HORIZON The BCREA forecasts that the five-year qualifying rate is forecast to rise 35 basis points to 5.49 per cent by Q4 2018, and another 21 basis points to 5.7 per cent by Q4 2019. If this happens, under the new mortgage qualification rules, mortgage applicants will have to qualify at 5.7 per cent or 2 per cent more than their contracted interest rate, whichever is the greater. With the average five-year contracted mortgage rate predicted to rise to 3.84 per cent in the same period, most buyers could be looking at qualifying at nearly 6 per cent by the end of 2019.
HOME SALES* Attached Detached
PRICE GROWTH TO CONTINUE
MEDIAN SALE PRICE**
Despite the slowing sales and rising rates, the BCREA is forecasting that MLS® home sale prices across B.C. will continue to increase – by 6 per cent to $752,000 (average over the whole year), and a further 4 per cent to $781,800 in 2019.
The Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island are expected to see the biggest price rises this year, at around 8 per cent, while some Northern B.C. regions are predicted to see slower price rises of less than 2 per cent. However, no regions are forecast to see any price declines either this year or next year. The BCREA points out the predicted price rises are much lower than price increases seen in the past few years, due to the rising interest rates, tough mortgage rules and an anticipated boost in housing supply from current new construction.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Uncle George at the young age of 93. He was born in 1925 and moved to New Westminster 5 years later. George was the fifth born of 6 children and was the last surviving sibling. He was extremely proud to have been a member of the Canadian Military during World War II. George was a Millworker for 42 years in New Westminster before happily retiring. He is survived by his sisterin-law Vi Bodner and friend Al Peterson. George was loved dearly by his niece; Colleen and nephews; Ken, Craig, Casey and Arnold. He was also a wonderful Grandfather to Bryce, Shaylene, and Amber. Being a man of humour, George was always able to see the positive in everything. He danced his way through life and is now dancing with the angels. George’s Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
