Get rid of Camp Cloud, say residents Lauren Boothby

Growing tensions between residents of the Forest Grove neighbourhood and occupants of the two protest camps outside Trans Mountain’s terminal on Burnaby Mountain came to the surface at city hall on Monday. Five residents from the neighbourhood came to present a petition with 175 signatures asking council to remove the two camps.They cited concerns with traffic, fire hazards and road blockages, as well as concerns about safety and the protest camp growing into a “homeless camp.” Darlene Johnston presented the petition on behalf of a neighbourhood group. In her speech, she said she supported the right to protest as long as it was done “in a civilized manner” and demonstrators go home at the end of each day. She said the more than 200 arrests for protesting at the gates indicated the demonstrators have “many violent tendencies.” (It should be noted that the vast majority of arrests have not been for Criminal Code violations.)

Burnaby to get first homeless housing 52 units to be built at 3986 Norland St., but homeless advocate hopes more coming to Burnaby Lauren Boothby

lboothby@burnabynow.com

Burnaby’s first residence for homeless people is being welcomed as a positive first step – but one advocate says more needs to be done for the city to catch up to other communities. Plans for a new three-storey building at 3986 Norland St. were announced Friday. It will include 52 studio units for men and women, including seniors and people with disabilities, who are homeless and need support to address mental health or substance abuse issues.

The provincial government will contribute $7.6 million to build the facility, with Burnaby leasing the undeveloped cityowned land to B.C. Housing for at least five years using money from the city’s housing fund.The homes are expected to be completed by March 2019. Karen O’Shannacery, of the Society to End Homelessness in Burnaby, said she was very happy to hear of the plans for the new facility. As the Progressive Housing Society estimates there are currently 250 to 300 people who are homeless in Burnaby, O’Shannacery says this project is a step forward to address this issue.

“We know that providing homes is the answer; it doesn’t take rocket science,” she said. “People without homes need homes, first and foremost, and they need the supports that are appropriate to help them keep their homes, and stabilize, and become really healthy and part of the community in a bigger, in a better way.” But O’Shannacery said more work needs to be done. “Burnaby is definitely playing catchup.The surrounding communities have a continuum of housing for people who are homeless.This is a first for Burnaby,” she said. New Westminster, Surrey and Vancouver already have shelters and transitional, supportive and permanent housing. The Progressive Housing Society – which

will operate the new facility – currently runs one transitional house in Burnaby that supports five people for two years or less, and two shared homes for five other clients. This is the first dedicated housing facility for homeless people in the city. Burnaby does not have a year-round shelter, but some emergency shelters are available during the winter. Mayor Derek Corrigan said the city has not been supportive of other housing projects for homeless people in the past because those models offered only temporary solutions. Overnight shelters, he says, have been “problematic,” created “neighbourhood difficulties,” and “very negative experiences” in other communities where they have operated. Continued on page 5

City now KINDER MORGAN

LocalMPsparedjailtimeforcontemptcharge Kennedy Stewart to pay a $500 fine, a more lenient sentence than previous Burnaby MP Svend Robinson

Cornelia Naylor

cnaylor@burnabynow.com

A Burnaby MP will pay $500 after pleading guilty to criminal contempt for breaking a court injunction banning anti-pipeline protesters from getting within five metres of Kinder Morgan’s two terminals in Burnaby. Predicting the imminent demise of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project, Stewart said it’s unlikely many more protesters will have to break the injunction, and he’s satisfied he will have done his part without breaking it again. “I’d never rule it out, but I don’t think it’s going to be necessary for this pipeline,” he told the NOW, “but I do feel like I’ve done what I committed to do for my community, and I’m satisfied with that.” Stewart was in court Monday when special prosecutor Michael Klein recommended a charge of criminal contempt against the MP for deliberately

crossing the injunction line on March 23 with 16 other protesters, including federal Green Party leader Elizabeth May. The protesters originally faced charges of civil contempt, but Justice Kenneth Affleck, the same judge who originally issued the injunction order on March 15, ruled, “as a matter of law,” the alleged actions of the protesters were criminal contempt that should be prosecuted by the B.C. Prosecution Service instead of through civil proceedings undertaken by Kinder Morgan. Special prosecutors were then assigned to Stewart’s and May’s cases to “avoid any significant potential for real or perceived improper influence in the administration of criminal justice,” according to the Attorney General’s office. Affleck agreed with the criminal contempt charge against Stewart, and, after Stewart pleaded guilty, issued him a $500 fine. “I talked to my lawyer about what to do here, and

I decided the best thing for me, in terms of showing my full respect for the court, was to plead guilty and not cost any more court time,” Stewart said. “I know others aren’t doing that ... but I felt it was the best thing for me to do.” Despite the name, criminal contempt is not a criminal code offence, so Stewart will not have a criminal record, and the MP said he had not been required to sign any sort of undertaking to promise he wouldn’t break the injunction again. In 1994, Burnaby MP Svend Robinson spent nine days in jail at the Ford Mountain Correctional Centre for criminal contempt for actions during anti-logging protests at Clayoquot Sound on Vancouver Island. Robinson, however, was a “repeat offender,” he said in a recent phone call to the NOW, having already had a finding of criminal contempt against him for antilogging protests on Haida Gwaii in 1985. “For the record, I have

enormous respect for Kennedy’s courage and integrity in taking the stand that he took on Kinder Morgan,” Robinson said. While Stewart will resign his federal seat sometime after the conclusion of the next sitting of the House of Commons at the end of

June to take a run at becoming the mayor of Vancouver, he said his opposition to the Trans Mountain expansion will continue. “I think it probably will be dead by then, but, if I’m mayor of Vancouver, I’ll continue to fight it from there,” he said. “I think the

city of Vancouver has done some good work on this. I don’t think they’ve gone as far as the City of Burnaby, and I would want to go further. I would also want citizens to be more involved in this, so perhaps consult a bit more widely before I took immediate action.”

City balancing rights of residents, camps: mayor Continued from page 1 In her presentation, Johnston suggested residents were at risk of rape, bodily harm and theft. “In September 2017, professional protesters and crisis actors set up a roadside camp with open fires burning across the gates from Shellmont Street,” she said. “This used to be a great place to live: forest trails, clean air, and a place for everyone who felt safe, but not anymore. It has turned into a homeless/protester camp, where you can do whatever you want, wherever you want, because the mayor is against Kinder Morgan and condones these illegal activities.” Members of both protest camps spoke in response to the presentation. Will George, a member of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation who has been leading the protests at the “watch house” with the Protect the Inlet group, said he too is concerned about safety of the residents of that area, which is why he is protesting the twinning of the Trans Mountain pipeline.

“This is why I do this, this is why I sacrifice my life, is to caretake with people that love the land in that immediate neighbourhood there,” he said. “We’re here to protect these people who are right there, opposing this. We care for them too, a great deal.” Mayor Derek Corrigan interrupted the presentation and asked George to explain the difference between the two protest groups on the mountain. “The watch house is completely different from the camp that has been there since September,” George said. “We make sure we do this absolutely right.We’re not just milling around. I sacrificed a career of 18 years to go up and be there. I haven’t been home in a month. I’m not just there to be there.” One man, who was introduced as an elder at Camp Cloud and goes by the name Maathlaatla, said he has been staying at the camp because he cares about the future of the environment. “I want the previous

speaker to come forward and demonstrate that we can drink oil,” he said. “You want to do something? Take care of the land for your grandchildren.Without protecting the water, we cease to exist.” He also indicated the group does not want to be called protesters because it is “a made-up word for confrontation.” Other residents of the camp have previously told the NOW on sever-

al occasions they wanted to be called “water protectors” and “land defenders,” rather than protesters. In an interview prior to the meeting, Corrigan said he can understand that people who live in Forest Grove may be irritated, but that the city is attempting to balance the right to protest with concerns of residents of Forest Grove. “On the other hand, the courts have recognized in

the Kinder Morgan injunction that there is a right to protest … they’ve protected the Camp Cloud site, and the watch house site,” he told the NOW.“We’re respecting that order, but we want to contain it and restrain it, make sure that it doesn’t go beyond what was authorized by the court.” Corrigan noted the city had recently installed barriers around Camp Cloud to prevent it from expand-

ing, and asked both groups to stop burning fires during fire season. “We’ve gone up and had a long talk with people there, about being respectful of the community and the neighbours,” he said. “We’ve had a great deal of success with the watch house being very respectful, but it’s been more difficult with the Camp Cloud people.” After the meeting, Barbara Spitz, who lives in Forest Grove, said that, while she supports the right to peaceful protest, she doesn’t want to see the camps expand and does not feel safe with them in her neighbourhood. But after hearing the presentation by the people from the watch house Monday night, she said she’ll consider visiting them to see what their protest is about. “They are such two separate ways of handling things.That homeless camp that’s there, it’s disgusting,” she said. “I won’t go by myself, but I will go see that watch house.”

Burnaby’s forests and wildlife are some of the city’s best features. But sometimes, when nature and humans meet, things can get a bit messy – like when bears search for food in your backyard. Dumpster-diving bears have become a problem for residents of northeastern Burnaby, which is why the city launched a pilot program last summer to install some bear-proof dumpsters and green bins at five multi-family complexes in the Cariboo area, near Simon Fraser University and in Forest Grove. The pilot program tested several different types of containers and locking mechanisms to find which were the most effective at keeping bears out.Those bins have metal bars that wrap around the lid and body, with two clips on either side.The green waste bins also have metal bars and clips. This year, the winning bin is being rolled out to other residents of multi-family complexes in those areas, first to those with existing waste and food-scrap collection programs, then to those that don’t have them. Tracey Tobin, environmental services officer in Burnaby, says the program has been successful so far and is good for not only the

residents but the bears too. “As there are more bears moving into the area due to development and more human-bear interactions, the bear-resistant bins will really help keep the bears out and stop them becoming habituated to human food sources, and really push them back into nature and having more of their natural food source,” she told the NOW. “This is just one way to re-

duce that bear-human conflict” The more bins that are installed, the less likely bears will be to try to get food from garbage containers, and the more likely they will be to move on to another source. “Bears are intelligent animals and basically, if something is not easily attainable for them, they will move on,” said Tobin. “Bears do what we call ‘imprinting,’ so if they can’t get into a specific type of container, … even if they are walking by the same container at a completely different areas they will remember that they can’t get into it.” But it’s not just garbage that can attract bears to your neighbourhood, says Tobin. Fallen fruit, improper composting, pet food and bird feeders can also draw them in.

This type of project is one Corrigan can get behind, he said, because residents will have consistent support and counselling from staff, and a more permanent place to

live, which will help residents find stability. It’s also a project he hopes will be well-received by the public. “The goal is to get them into permanent housing in the community and make sure they’re standing independently.That’s what they’re going to make happen, which is a goal I share with them,” he said. “The more we can help people to become inde-

pendent, stable and maybe even get back to employment, the better off our community’s going to be.” B.C. Housing will be meeting with the community and neighbours of where the new facility will be built. The first open houses are scheduled for June 5, 6 and 7 at the Bill Copeland Community Centre, 3676 Kensington Ave.

Opinion now OUR VIEW

Burnaby-South MP owes local voters an apology Politicians will always have time to tell you about how in touch they are with the common person – how they are in office to help average folks. Except when it doesn’t suit them or when something better comes along. Take, for example, NDP member of Parliament for Burnaby-South Kennedy Stewart. Last week, this local MP announced he was running for mayor of Vancouver in

October’s civic election. Stewart sounded thrilled to run for a job in Vancouver because, apparently, he’s been living in the city – and not Burnaby – for the past few years. To run for mayor of Vancouver, Stewart will resign his MP’s seat, forcing a byelection. Stewart seemed unconcerned about this during his press conference, despite the fact that byelections typically cost taxpayers about

$250,000. Stewart did manage to discuss perhaps the leader of the federal NDP, Jagmeet Singh, running in his place here in Burnaby, which makes us wonder if this is just a chess move by the party to get their leader elected somewhere before the next federal election (Singh quit his Ontario provincial seat to lead the federal NDP). We have a problem with what Stewart’s doing be-

cause it seems like a common thing for politicians

You make a commitment to serve your full term.

to try and switch jobs, despite making a commitment when they ran for the seat in

question. An apology would be nice from Stewart. Or maybe a tinge of regret? A hint of self-awareness of how he is bailing on the people who voted for him? After all, he was elected to serve his constituents for a full term – not quit just because he decides he wants a job closer to his Vancouver home. We understand that sometimes politicians have to resign for health or fam-

ily reasons, but dumping your constituents just to run for another elected office is tacky smacks of opportunism and is a slap in the face to the people who voted for him. It was the same when Christy Clark abruptly resigned her seat after being defeated in the last provincial election. You make a commitment to serve your full term, and you stick with it.That commitment comes with the job.

Housing issue haunts B.C. NDP More than a year has passed since the election that eventually led to the B.C. NDP forming government, and there are signs the issue the party rode to victory may be coming back to haunt it. That issue is “affordability,” and the NDP exploited it to the hilt when it was in opposition. By concentrating on unaffordable housing and things like bridge tolls, the New Democrats were able to snatch a bunch of ridings in Metro Vancouver from the B.C. Liberals and be in a position to partner with the Greens to form a government. But the affordability issue hasn’t gone away and is likely to be with us for quite a long time.The challenge for the NDP is that now that it is in government it is expected to solve the problems associated with affordability. And, quite simply, the government can’t do it, at least not during the election cycle. There is no way to turn an unaffordable $2 millionpriced house into a somewhat-affordable $500,000 house without wrecking the economy. There is no way to turn unaffordable $2,000-amonth two-bedroom rental units into somewhat-affordable $1,000 units. There is no way to introduce $10-a-day child care without bankrupting the provincial budget. So what we are seeing from the NDP in its first 10 months in power are relatively baby steps towards accomplishing some of these

goals.The results, however, have barely registered with the public. The foreign buyer’s tax has been increased, a socalled speculation tax will be unveiled this fall and legislation to increase tenants’ rights has been introduced. Housing sales have slowed significantly, but prices remain in the stratosphere. Rents remain high and the vacancy rate in much of Metro Vancouver remains hovering around zero per cent. The rollout of the new child-care program was botched, and many daycare operators even condemned it for actually increasing costs.The thing is still being fixed, and the NDP government appears to have given up ever mentioning the $10-a-day idea again. Meanwhile, on the other side of the equation, the cost of some things is going to start going up and not down. The new employers’ payroll tax comes into effect next year, and already some municipalities are warning they may have to increase property taxes to pay for the new tax. School boards and non-profit organizations will cut services or raise fees. The next election is likely still three years away. Here’s betting the affordability crisis won’t be solved by then, and we’ll see then if the issue exploited so well by the NDP in the last election doesn’t become a political albatross around its neck the next time voters head to the polls. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

$15,000 batch of French fries

A tenant at 3953 Godwin Ave. cooked up a very costly batch of French fries in February. He had put on a batch of the tasty snacks after work and then fell asleep.The oil then caught fire on the stove at about 3:31 a.m. Luckily he woke up and managed to get out of the apartment to get a fire extinguisher. He knocked down the main fire himself, according to the fire department. He was lucky to be alive, firefighters said, since people usually just stay asleep as smoke fills their homes.The fire did about $15,000 worth of damage.The tenant didn’t have content insurance, but the owner had fire insurance.

Baldrey over the edge on prop rep column Editor: Re: Fix is in on change in voting system, by Keith Baldrey, Burnaby NOW, May 9. (This column) is just a bit over the edge. Do the Green/NDP caucus have Vladimir Putin on speed-dial? Come on, Keith! The government will hold a referendum this fall on whether we should make our voting system more proportional. Proportional voting means that we would elect MLAs in proportion to our votes. In other words, a party that gets 40 per cent of the vote would get 40 per cent of the seats. That makes sense to me. All we’re asking for is that the way we vote is fairly reflected in the legislature. If you look back at previous elections, you can see that our current system voting system nearly always gives the winning party a boost in seats. That’s just the way the counting works out. It’s also why certain parties are so invested in keeping the current system and why there are so many obstacles to change. Just as a typical example, Christy Clark’s government won a comfortable majority of the seats (58 per cent) based on a popular vote of only 44 per cent. Proportional voting systems use more accurate ways of counting the votes so that seats match votes. The goal is for every voter to have their views represented by an MLA.

So what is Mr. Baldrey’s point? Why is he whipping up this frenzy? What’s he got against us voters? Iain Macanulty, Burnaby

Baldrey can’t make up his mind on criticism Editor: Re: Fix is in on change in voting system, by Keith Baldrey, Burnaby NOW, May 9. Mr. Baldrey seems to be stating that the B.C. NDP is trying to rig the referendum so they will be voted in under a new proportional representation electoral system. This seems in stark contrast to his opinion published Nov. 27. In that article he spelled out how the NDP would never get elected under a PR system. It’s clear Mr. Baldrey is dead set against PR. By his conflicted arguments either the NDP is stupid for trying to adopt an electoral system that will never get them elected to power, or they are plotting to stack the deck so that under a new system they will always have the balance of power. What are you so afraid of, Mr. Baldrey? Wouldn’t it be better to have a government that is truly representative of the voters, even if that means our elected officials have to learn how to work together and find compromises? We saw after 16 years of one party in power what happens when there is no dissenting voice to provide the checks and balances necessary for a functioning democracy. David Soothill, Burnaby

As the B.C. Coroners Service releases its latest statistics on illicit drug overdose deaths, Burnaby’s medical health officer is urging high school grads and their families and friends to talk openly about substance use to avoid the risk of overdose during upcoming grad celebrations. A total of 161 people – the equivalent of more than five a day – died of suspected overdoses on drugs like heroin, cocaine, MDMA, methamphetamine and illicit fentanyl in B.C. in March, according to the coroners service. That’s an increase of 24 per cent from last March’s 130 deaths and a 58 per cent spike over February’s suspected total of 102. Looking at the first three months of 2018, the coroners service says fentanyl was detected in post-mortem testing in more than eight in every 10 deaths (83 per cent). Seven in every 10 people who died were aged 19 to 49 years, but suspected illicit drug overdoses have also already claimed the lives of five people between the ages of 10 and 18 this year. Last year, 23 kids under the age of 18 died of overdoses. With grad parties and other celebrations ramping up, Fraser Health medical health officer for Burnaby and New Westminster Dr.

Harsh realities: With the arrival of grad season, Fraser Health is urging parents to talk to their teens about drugs. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED

Aamir Bharmal is stressing the importance of talking to youths about drugs in a non-judgmental and supportive way. “These are preventable deaths, which is why it is so important that young people understand the risks of overdose and how to respond if one occurs,” Bharmal stated in a press release Thursday. “Talking about substance use can help save lives, and, while we encourage young people to avoid drugs altogether, if they choose to use substances, there are measures they can take that can help them stay safer.” To get the conversation about drugs started, parents can find tips in “When Words Matter,” a four-page

Tips

For grads, the health authority recommends a number of safety measures: !not using alone !arranging for someone to check on them !never leaving a buddy alone to “sleep it off” !staggering drug use if using with friends !having a designated sober person !trying a little bit first and seeing how things go !not mixing multiple drugs or drugs and alcohol !not leaving drinks unattended to prevent spiking !knowing the signs of an overdose

City now BCA sets school slate Cornelia Naylor

cnaylor@burnabynow.com

Voters will have five new Burnaby Citizens Association trustee candidates to choose from this fall. On April 29, the NDP-affiliated municipal party nominated five new candidates for school board: Bill Brassington Jr., Peter Cech, Surash Bhayana, Jen Mezei and Ryan Stewart. Trustees Gary Wong and Larry Hayes are the only current members of the board who will run again Oct. 20. Current chair Ron Burton, who will have served 31 years on the board by the end of this term, said he is stepping down to spend more time with his two-year-old grandson, of whom he has full custody with his wife. The veteran trustee said the BCA’s new blood will be good for the school board. “You don’t want to get too stagnant, fresh ideas,” he said. Current school board vice-chair Baljinder Narang has been nominated to run for city council. Meiling Chia, currently serving her second term, did not put her name forward to run again. Harman Pandher, also in his second term, originally put his name forward for both school board and city council but then withdrew his bid for both before the nomination meeting for “personal reasons,” he said. “I felt this was a good enough time to have devoted, seven years of my life, to school board,” he told the NOW. “I’m not ruling out a run in the future, but at this time it just wasn’t the right time personally for council, and even just maybe the dynamics of the municipal scene at this time is not right for me to put my name forward, and I’m fine with that.”

Artist sets Salish footprint in Burnaby

Vue Point exhibit by renowned artist Susan Point is on display at the Deer Lake Gallery until June 2 Janaya Fuller-Evans

editorial@burnabynow.com

Susan Point has followed her historical roots to Burnaby for an art exhibit at Deer Lake Gallery. “I’ve never really shown in this area, and people in this area, I hope they realize this is Salish territory. At one time my people lived in little villages along this area,” Point, who is of Musqueam descent, told the NOW. She added that she wants to “hopefully set the Salish footprint upon this area so people are aware that, hey, this is Coast Salish territory, this is their art form.” The exhibit is a chance for people to see the world from Point’s perspective, her Vue Point. Nature has always played a major role in what she’s created, she said. “Over the years, I’ve done so much, right, in terms of different images, but a lot of space on the environment,” Point said. “I like to use nature, animal forms, the outline of a Coast Salish person.” Two animals in particular feature prominently in her work. “I love salmon because of the Fraser River, and that was, you know, sustenance for my people, and I

love the frog,” Point said. “I love frogs because I remember the story my mother used to tell me, and that was how they knew when spring came, that was when the frogs started croaking, and when they stopped singing, after their berry picking or whatever they’re doing in the summer months, when the frogs stopped singing they knew it was time to go into the longhouse. So it was the telling of seasons.” Point began her career as an artist making jewelry and two-colour prints of her work, she told the NOW. She then moved onto painting and, eventually, to wood carving. “It wasn’t until 1990 that I started carving wood,” she said, explaining she was connected with John Livingston, who was not of First Nations descent but had been adopted by the Kwakwaka’wakw Nation via the famous Hunt family, who taught him to carve. “He is very good – he was my teacher. He came over and he taught me the basics in woodcarving, the tools, the knives. And that’s how I started, and once I started I couldn’t stop because it is so meditative,” Point said. “And I love the smell, I can just sit there and carve away. I just love it, you know.”

ON POINT: Susan Point, who is of Musqueam descent, wants people in Burnaby to realize they live in Coast Salish territory. Her renowned work will be on display at the Deer Lake Gallery until June 2. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED Unfortunately the oils in the cedar began to affect her eyes and sinuses, so she doesn’t carve as much as she would like. These days, she is mostly drawing and painting. “I’ve done a few charcoals, but that’s some-

thing I’d like to get into more,” she added, saying she spends a lot of time on commissions. “Somebody always wants something, so I’m not given the free rein to do whatever I want to do,” she explained, but added she did have free-

dom with her sculptures and public art pieces. “In some cases I’ve been given guidelines to follow – depending on the area, I have to think about the environment in terms of medium,” Point said. “I try to create imagery that kind of

reflects the area, and in doing so, again, I’ll use nature or the surrounding areas to create something. Everything revolves around nature.” Vue Point is at the Deer Lake Gallery, 6584 Deer Lake Ave., until June 2.

New website provides info on avoiding child injuries

It’s rough-and-tumble world being a kid – especially if they play sports. An average of 900 B.C. children and teens are hospitalized each year due to sports-related injuries. A new website – activesafe.ca – is working to change this by giving parents, kids, coaches and teachers easy access to injury prevention information for over 50 popular

sports and recreational activities, including soccer, volleyball, gymnastics, ice hockey, kayaking, hiking and snowboarding. Active & Safe Central was developed by the B.C. Injury Research and Prevention Unit at B.C. Children’s Hospital in partnership with injury prevention experts, sport injury specialists and sport organizations across Canada.

SUMMER CAMPS & ACTIVITIES

Keep in touch with kids at camp

Summer camp is an exciting way for children to spend their extended vacations from the classroom. Camps cater to various interests, including sports, crafts and even technological hobbies. Children who attend overnight camps

may spend several nights away from home. Some kids take this in stride, while others, possibly away from home for the first time, may experience some homesickness. Staying in touch while the kids are at camp can help alleviate fears and show children their parents care.

Camps now handle communication issues differently than they might have when today’s parents were campers. While it once common for campers to send handwritten letters or short missives home to mom and dad, technology has changed that. Today’s campers may have access to email accounts, or they even may be allowed to bring mobile phones along. This can facilitate communication, but it also may take away from the camping experience. Parents need to find a balance between what might be too little or too much contact with campers. After all, camp is kids’ chance to grow independent for a few days or weeks. Learn camp rules: The camp will likely provide information regarding correspondence. Camps may permit parents to send one-way emails and regular mail, but limit campers to handwritten letters only.

SUMMER CAMPS & ACTIVITIES termine if mobile phones are allowed or should be left at home. Knowing the rules can help parents and kids plan accordingly. Pack correspondence supplies: Send kids to camp with fun papers, stickers, pens, and other crafty items. This way they’ll be inspired to write home once or twice. Provide brief lessons on how to address an envelope for campers who may not know how. Check blogs and texts: Some camps may blog about campers’ progress, post information on social media or send out mass texts. These messages can reassure parents that their youngsters are doing just fine. Figure out which tech options are available from camp administrators. Send a care package: Treat the campers to some supplies from home. Pack camp-approved snacks and other reminders of home. Be sure to include enough for the entire cabin and

your son or daughter will be the camp star. Expect some silence: If camp is going well and campers’ days are fun-filled, they may be too busy for daily correspondence. Parents may get nervous when they don’t routinely see or hear from their children,

but chances are everything is going swimmingly. The camp experience is often harder on parents than children, as campers have their friends and activities to keep them busy. Brief communication helps campers grow more confident and independent.

A Burnaby artist’s work is featured in a show at New Westminster’s Plaskett Gallery this month. Escape from the City, featuring watercolours on paper, canvas and fabric by Donna Polos, is running at the gallery at Massey Theatre until May 30. Polos, in an artist statement, says she uses painting nature as an escape from city life. “I find inner peace by painting watercolour on paper, canvas and cotton,” she says. “I have extended my watercolours to not just paper, but watercolours on canvas and fabric. By painting the three mediums, paper, canvas and cotton, side by side, hopefully the audience will see that fibre art is art and not just craft.” The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday, 1 to 5 p.m., and during performances at Massey Theatre (735 Eighth Ave.) BOOK PRIZE A Burnaby resident has earned a B.C. Book Prize for a book exploring the history of Nikkei fishermen in B.C. Fumio (Frank) Kanno earned the award with coeditors Jim Tanaka of Richmond, Henry Tanaka of New Westminster and the late Kotaro Hayashi for Changing Tides:VanishingVoices of Nikkei Fishermen and Their Families. The book, published by the Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre, earned the Roderick Haig-Brown Regional Prize, presented to the book that contributes most to the enjoyment and understanding of British Columbia. The winners of the 34th annual B.C. Book Prizes were announced at a May 4 gala in Vancouver. Check out www.bcbookprizes.ca for all the details.

The benefits of water features in garden landscapes Many homeowners aspire to make their homes appear as beautiful and welcoming as possible. Exterior renovations may be high on homeowners’ to-do lists, and landscaping is oftentimes a key component of those projects. When planning gardens, homeowners may benefit by considering more than just flowers and shrubs while giving thought to other elements that can breathe vitality into their landscape designs.Water features can do just that, as such features provide more than just visual appeal. Aesthetic appeal:Water elements stand out against the greenery and foliage and can be used to create focal points around the garden or yard. A single fountain can draw the eye, while a trickling stream or waterfall can deliver water to various spots in the landscape. Soothing sound: Rain drops on a rooftop or waves lapping on a shoreline elicit feelings of harmony and relaxation. Water features can bring that gentle sound close to home, further enhancing the ambiance. Brings texture: Water has its own unique and fluid texture that can provide stark contrast to blades of grass or the hard lines of architectural elements, such as pergolas or retaining walls. A pond or fountain can soften lines.

B

Enhance the natural ecosystem: Water features can attract wildlife to a property. Birds may visit to take a quick sip, and dragonflies are sure to dart and hover over the shimmering ripples. Inviting natural wildlife to the yard can add hours of entertainment by enjoying the animals and insects. Remedy problem areas: Rather than fighting with the landscape, homeowners can adapt it. An area of the yard prone to soggy conditions or flooding can be transformed into a pond or waterfall to work with natural surroundings. Foster a passion: Many people turn to water features so they can explore the hobby of nurturing an outdoor aquarium. Koi ponds are relatively easy to install and maintain, and the vibrant fish add visual appeal. Add a personal touch: Water features are as unique as the homeowners who create them. To set landscaping apart from neighbors’ homes, homeowners can add fountains, ponds or flowing water elements to their properties. Decorative water features also can be melded with pools and spas to help these manmade recreational areas seem like they were carved right out of the natural landscape.

Lakers off the schneid Dan Olson

dolson@burnabynow.com

Symetry isn’t always harmonious. For the Burnaby junior Lakers, symetry was evident in both the good and bad of the past weekend’s twin wins. By raking up back-to-back wins over the Nanaimo Timbermen (11-10 on Sunday) and Delta Islanders (14-13 on Saturday), Burnaby found a productive balance to post its first positive results of the 2018 junior lacrosse season. But eerily similar were the third periods where the Lakers clung on for dear life, with a surge from the opposition making it a thrill ride to the final buzzer. “Earlier we were having issues with our effort in the second period, and now it’s in the third,” noted Lakers coach Jason Dallevalle. “We kind of let our foot off the gas both games.” Still, they managed to eke out the allimportant wins. On Sunday, the Lakers led 8-2 before Nanaimo started its slow rally. A five-goal lead nearly evaporated in the third, when the visiting T-men outshot Burnaby 23-9 but were stonewalled by Matteo Tack. Dylan Kaminski’s third goal of the day, midway through the third, proved to be the winner. Chipping in two goals and two assists was Mason Pomeroy. A day earlier, Burnaby again took a five-goal lead in the middle frame before the Islanders rallied. Delta tied it up three times in the third, only to see the Lakers get the last word on Damon Prince’s third of the day with just 2:04 remaining. Kieran McKay and Prince each accounted for three goals and five assists. Pomeroy added four goals, with a pair by Kyle Durec. “We’re starting to get in a rhythm and getting more key players back in the lineup (from college), but we still were missing players,” said Dallevalle. Burnaby hits the road for games in Coquitlam tonight (Wednesday) and in Victoria on Saturday.

Vikings build solid case for next year Dan Olson

dolson@burnabynow.com

Forget the score – remember the experience. The Burnaby North Vikings saw their season come to an end Monday in a 5-0 defeat at the hands of West Vancouver in a zone cross-over for provincial qualifying.

For the senior girls soccer team, it was a second-straight loss, coming on the heels of a 3-0 setback last week in the Burnaby-New West league playoff final. The loss to New West put them in a must-win situation against the North Shore No. 2 team. But while those results may

sting, for a team with only one Grade 12 on the roster, making the final and playing a qualifying game were all layers upon an experience for a mostly Grade 9 and 10 lineup. “It was fantastic, because I saw this as a rebuilding year,” remarked Burnaby North head coach Deborah Peters. The Vikings finished first at

6-1-1 in the regular season and handed New West its only loss. The highlight, Peters said, was how this diverse group of primarily Grade 8 to 11 players came together. “It was just wonderful how they became a cohesive team. They always played hard.”

EDC weathers the storm to capture provincial cup

First season in Over-35 premier league sees Burnaby club secure two cup titles and an appetite for more Dan Olson

dolson@burnabynow.com

It ended just as though scripted. First-time contestants in the Vancouver Metro Soccer League’s Over-35 premier circuit, EDC Burnaby understood the challenges, the possibilities and the route they’d need to take to exit on a successful note. With Saturday’s 1-0 triumph over league rival Westside FC, Burnaby not only finished on a high but as provincial champions

Pla Y

to boot. Habil Otieno’s header midway through the second half stood up as the difference in EDC’s victory in the B.C. Masters A Cup final at Burnaby Lake West. Teammate Ducivan De Souza Nascimento delivered a cross to the box that Otieno tipped past the Westside keeper. “It was a pretty even (final), and we maybe had an edge in the first half and they kind of carried it a bit in the second half,” said Burnaby coach Rodrigo Alvarado.

Riverway Golf Course & Driving Range 604-280-4653

Otieno’s tally didn’t come against the flow of play but certainly spurred on a big rally effort by Westside, whose roster is stocked with provincial cup experience. “They came at us with everything after (Otieno’s goal).We kind of held on and weathered the storm.” Leading that charge was goalkeeper Hugo Vazquez, who made four saves in the second half to protect the lead. “We were getting a little wor-

ried,” noted Alvarado. “(Westside) kept coming at us. But at the beginning of the game we knew we may have had more wheels and were a little more youthful, but they had experience.” In the end, Burnaby’s youth prevailed. It was the second time they handled Westside – having beaten them two months ago in the league cup semifinal. The core of the EDC lineup are no strangers to championships, having won an Open A provincial title in 2015. But Alvarado said

the important part was how they overcame a sluggish debut – where they finished sixth at 8-2-8 – and came together down the stretch. They also had their share of critics who questioned their ability to keep their up-tempo game going. “I think of this team like a family,” he said. “Everybody knew what it would take, that there’d be a lot of hard work and commitment.We got on a roll (in playoffs) and played like we wanted it more.”

EXCLUSIVE BURNABY NOW SUBSCRIPTION CLUB

Boxers pack a punch $ North Burnaby fighters show well in exhibition bout 5/MONTH Dan Olson

dolson@burnabynow.com

It was a showcase and a tune-up. It proved to be a success on both fronts. The North Burnaby Boxing Club (NBBC) participated in the Hollyburn Boxing Gala last week, and returned from West Vancouver with a handful of wins and the confidence that comes from putting their best punch forward. In just his third fight, Filippos Liappas showed that he’s ready for bigger and better things after edging Contenders Club’s Johnie Quigaman in a junior welterweight split decision. “It was very close, but

(Liappas) came out of it very well,” remarked NBBC coach Manny Sobral. “Just knowing he went three solid rounds and didn’t get flustered. He’s more of a brawler and (Quigaman) is more a standup boxer. … (Liappas) kept coming and getting inside and worked hard. He was very exhausted afterwards.” It improved the 19-yearold’s record to 3-0. “He’s got a lot of ability, and he’s a very good puncher. Fil is very determined and he has no quit.When it got tough, he got tougher.” Another North Burnaby fighter, Nathan Dizon, outlasted Beyond Boxing’s Vincent Ma in a unanimous de-

cision in a youth junior welterweight match. It was Dizon’s first win, but one Sobral envisions will be repeated numerous times in the future. “He was jumping up and down even two hours after his match,” said Sobral. “For me, that was a big highlight. Nathan was just so happy, and he has so much energy that it’s contagious.” In the other matchup, North Burnaby’s Charly Dawson and Cody Lam duked it out in a threeround lightweight exhibition.The two, who spar as training partners, put on a show in preparation for next month’s Silver Gloves.

Looking for a new home? Start here.

B.C. home price trajectory flattens with slow sales, more listings Is B.C.’s real estate pendulum starting to swing back to a more balanced market? At 8,203 units, home sales across the province in April were 10 per cent higher than March’s total, according to market data released by the British Columbia Real Estate Association May 14.

However, BCREA’s chief economist Cameron Muir does not expect the market to drop dramatically. He said, “The impact of more burdensome mortgage qualifications for conventional borrowers is expected to soften over the next several months, as potential buyers adjust both their finances and expectations.”

That’s nearly 17 per cent lower than April last year, although a marked improvement over the 24.6 per cent annual decline reported the previous month.

As ever, the above headline averages smooth out huge variations between different regions across the province.

The number of available B.C. homes for sale remains low compared with historical averages, but in April the total inventory rose four per cent over March and nearly nine per cent year over year. The province is still overall in a seller’s market, with a sales-to-listings ratio of 28.4 per cent, but that’s lower than it has been for many months, suggesting a slow creep towards a more balanced market (between 12 and 20 per cent).

Victoria is still in a hot seller’s market with a 50 per cent sales-to-listings ratio. Victoria home sales fell 12.6 per cent year over year in April, which although a marked slowdown, is not as steep a decline as in the Lower Mainland or B.C.’s average. The average sale price in Victoria rose nearly 12 per cent year over year to $703,592. Vancouver Island saw a similar average price increase at 11.3 per cent, and has a sales-to-listings ratio of 38.5 per cent.

This improvement in supply seems to be borne out by a flattening in the upward trajectory of B.C.’s average resale price, which in April stood just 0.2 per cent higher than one year ago, at $730,507 – around $4,000 higher than in March this year.

The biggest annual price increase was seen in the smaller market of Powell River, where average resale prices are up nearly 16 per cent year over year. This is closely followed by Chilliwack, up 15.8 per cent.

The BCREA said, “Most regions of the province have begun trending toward more balance between supply and demand, causing less upward pressure on home prices.”

Variations by region

Greater Vancouver’s price change sat around the provincial average, up 1.1 per cent year over year, whereas the Fraser Valley saw a larger annual price increase at 10.2 per cent. Both regions remained in seller’s market territory at 25.1

Connecting agents to the community

per cent and 35.6 per cent territory, with Greater Vancouver moving closer to a balanced market. Although most boards reported year-over-year sales decreases, Kootenay was B.C.’s only real estate board to post an annual decline in average sale prices, at 4.7 per cent lower than a year ago. Year-to-date figures A slow start to 2018, caused in large part by the new mortgage stress test introduced January 1, meant that total B.C. residential sales in the first four months of the year were reduced from the same period one year previously. Residential unit sales decreased 11.8 per cent to 27,135 units sold in January to April 2018. The average price of all B.C. homes sold on the MLS so far this year is $731,661, which is 5.7 per cent higher than in the same period last year. With the average sale price rise not enough to offset the reduction in unit transactions, year-to-date, B.C.’s total residential sales dollar volume fell 6.7 per cent to $19.9 billion, compared with $21.3 billion in first four months of 2017. For a more complete regional breakdown of the market stats, the full report can be found at www. bcrea.bc.ca

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes.
