POLICE PRESENCE: Members of the Burnaby RCMP talk with protesters on Monday at Trans Mountain’s Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby. No arrests were made. PHOTO CORNELIA NAYLOR
Protesterstestnewinjunction Monday was the first protest since a judge expanded rules at Trans Mountain sites Cornelia Naylor
Anti-pipeline protesters shut down access to Trans Mountain’s Westridge Marine terminal in Burnaby on Monday morning, but none opted to be arrested under a recently expanded court injunction aimed at demonstrators. A small group holding a banner blocked the entrance to the terminal for the first time since B.C. Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Affleck agreed to do away with a 10-minute window the original injunction had allowed for protesters to comply before arrest. Sara Ross, one of the demon-
strators blocking the road, told the NOW on Monday was “just the right place, right time” for her to risk testing the new order. “A $1,500 fine, a $5,000 fine, seven days jail time – it’s irrelevant compared to the severity of the consequences, which is a threat to clean water and land and air and future generations,” she said. Two trucks headed for the terminal were turned back during the protest. As a few dozen other demonstrators drummed and chanted a short distance away, the small group blocking the entrance held its ground until Burnaby RCMP read out the injunction order and began its five-step arrest pro-
cess – the final step of which is arrest – with each protester, one by one. Each demonstrator left the road before officers got to the final step. “It’s after noon, and they didn’t get as much work done as they would have without us,” SFU health sciences professor Tim Takaro said of Trans Mountain and what the demonstration had accomplished. Takaro said he was angered by the federal government’s recently announced plan to pay $4.5 billion to take over the pipeline expansion project, which he called “immoral.” “We know that we can’t built new, large fossil fuel infrastruc-
ture and meet our commitments to reduce greenhouse gases, so it’s immoral for them to have now taken the risk on for this project, which is an environmental risk, it’s a health risk, it’s a business risk, and they did it without our consent,”Takaro said. Since Affleck first approved an injunction banning protesters from coming within five metres of the Trans Mountain sites, Burnaby RCMP have arrested 202 protesters for violating it. The $7.4-billion Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project will triple the capacity of the company’s current pipeline, transporting up to 890,000 barrels of oil per day.

Burnaby residents fed up with drunk people yelling, swearing, vandalizing, urinating and defecating near their apartment buildings may be getting some help from the RCMP and local government. A delegation of Highgate Greenway area residents presented a petition with 359 signatures to city council on May 28.They complained about a persistent problem of rowdy partying in the greenspace leading to a group of five apartment buildings north of Arcola Way. “Residents, being the children and adults in the surrounding buildings, should not have to be exposed to such activities,” they wrote. “Many residents are afraid of their safety being compromised by walking through the public access, and will take other routes to reach the shopping centre.” A city report presented to council on Monday in response to the petition explains that the benches and greenway are not on city property, but it is governed by a covenant requiring the space to allow public access. Burnaby RCMP reported receiving multiple calls complaining about drinking, drug use and raucous behaviour in the Greenway.They say the activity spiked last summer. The majority of people are residents of the nearby apartments and, police say, many are seniors, some in wheelchairs. There was one assault in the area, according to police, but the rest of the calls to the area have been for disturbances and liquor offences.The cops plan to increase foot patrols in the area and target repeat offenders. Bylaw officers will also include the area in their routine bike patrols to try to curb the activity. City staff will also ask the nearby BC Liquor Store to restrict sales of single beer bottles.

City looks Silvester Law was given a ticket while volunteering on closed-off Hastings during Hats Off Day to spruce up some streets Cornelia Naylor
A Burnaby man who got a traffic ticket while volunteering at the Hats Off Day parade is fighting back with a little free help from a Vancouver law firm. A week after attending the North Burnaby parade to take photos and videos for the local firefighters union, Silvester Law got a $142 ticket in the mail. A red light camera had caught him driving about 30 km/h through a red light on Hastings Street by Willingdon Avenue at 9:02 a.m. But the intersection had already been closed for about half an hour for the event. Law said police officers had waved him and a few other drivers through closed intersections to go from one side of the parade route to the other. “Everywhere there’s barricades,” he said. The red light camera at Hastings and Willingdon, however, had apparently continued to snap photos. Law first called the integrated traffic camera unit as per the back of his ticket, but the officer on the phone didn’t agree to cancel the ticket, even though a photo attached to it clearly shows police officers standing in the intersection, not paying much attention to Law’s vehicle slowly running the red. “I tried to explain to them that you can even see that cops were standing in the middle of the intersec-

When he attended the ICBC office in Metrotown, he said he was told he could dispute the ticket in court, but he would get two demerit points on his licence as well as a $169 fine if he was unsuccessful. Burnaby RCMP were sympathetic but said there was nothing they could do, according to Law. “It’s frustrating because there’s no process to easily address the mistake,” he said. “There’s nobody who can easily intervene. It’s kind of mind blowing, the massive bureaucracy that now I have to face.”
After his dilemma was covered in a CTV story, however,Vancouver law firm Warnett Hallen agreed to help him out for free, and they are now in the process of drafting a letter to the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles in an attempt to have the ticket thrown out without Law having to go to court. “This ticket should not have been issued; that’s the bottom line,” partner Manjot Hallen told the NOW. The whole experience has been a learning curve for 34-year-old Law, who said he hasn’t gotten so much as a speeding ticket since he
was 18. “Traffic tickets can only be disputed in court, and ICBC doesn’t have any say in the enforcement of provincial traffic laws, according to an emailed statement from ICBC communications specialist Joanna Linsangan. She directed the NOW’s questions to the Ministry of Public Safety & Solicitor General. As for Law being told he’d get a bigger fine and two demerit points if he unsuccessfully disputed the ticket, Linsangan said the fine for running a red light at an intersection is $167 –
$142 if paid within 30 days – but demerit points aren’t applied at all in camera-enforcement cases. Burnaby traffic ticket lawyer Dan Griffiths with ATAC Law said it’s all too common for ICBC employees to give out wrong information, but it’s hard to say whether they are purposely discouraging drivers from disputing tickets. “Some of them might be malicious, but I would say that it’s more likely just sloppiness in knowing the law,” he said. The public safety ministry did not respond to requests for comment by press time.
Judge rebukes ex-wife for ‘scandalous’ actions Cornelia Naylor
A Burnaby woman has been ordered to pay $133,672 in special court costs to her ex-husband after she lied repeatedly under oath during their divorce proceedings, colluded with her parents to deceive the court, extensively and expertly doctored her bank records, and needlessly prolonged the court case at “great expense to the husband, both financially and emotionally,” according to court documents. The woman, a landed immigrant from Mainland China identified only asY.S., and her ex-husband,
J.C., a Canadian of Chinese descent who grew up in Vancouver, met at aYMCA event in 2008. They were married for two years and together owned two Burnaby properties, a condo on Hazel Street and a half-duplex on Halley Avenue. Their marriage ended in July 2012, when the woman announced she wanted to separate after she had moved, without her husband, into their recently bought family home on Halley Avenue with their one-year-old son. During their 18-day divorce trial, the woman’s credibility was “seriously undermined,” according to
a decision by Justice Lance Bernard, when an order halfway through the trial authorized her bank to provide her records directly to her ex-husband’s lawyers.
The wife accused the husband of paranoia. The new records, along with testimony from a T.D. Canada Trust bank manager, revealed the documents she had originally provided had been doctored. The woman had “strenuously opposed” the order,
according to court documents. Bernard said he was satisfiedY.S., who has a master’s degree in accountancy and works as a senior accountant for a private equity firm, had the necessary skills to alter the records convincingly and no one but her or someone acting “at her behest” would have had a reason to make the changes. “To add insult to injury, the wife accused the husband of paranoia in relation to his suspicions that she was ‘setting him up’ and altering financial documents,” said Bernard. After ordering the couple’s divorce and divvying
up their assets and parenting time, the judge awarded special costs to the woman’s ex-husband. “There can be no question that the wife’s conduct throughout the litigation was scandalous, outrageous, and deserving of rebuke,” he said in his ruling. Special costs are awarded when the court finds one of the parties in a civil case has engaged in some sort of reprehensible conduct. Last week, the court registrar assessedY.S.’s special costs at $133,672.48: $104,172.48 for the divorce proceedings and $29,500 for expenses related to the special costs assessment.
The City of Burnaby has a new plan to make some of its residential streets safer and prettier. Most local roads — roughly 75 per cent — already meet the municipality’s minimum standards, but many outside city centres do not. “Early development in Burnaby resulted in neighbourhoods with narrow pavement and a gravel shoulder without a sidewalk or concrete curb and gutter,” states the interim local street upgrade strategy presented to council on Monday. The city usually shares costs for new boulevards with local developers and property owners, but this has left some neighbourhoods lagging behind.The new plan would see the city take on all costs. This would cost taxpayers an additional $1.5 million a year, for a total annual cost of $4 million. City staff suggested three top-priority areas: Madison Avenue, Charles Street and Graveley Street; Macpherson Avenue, Marine Drive and Eleanor Street; Buller Avenue, Keith Street and Gilley Avenue. These “critical links” would make it safer for pedestrians to get to schools, parks community centres and SkyTrain stations, the report says. The city would coordinate the addition of sidewalks and streetlights to be installed at the same time as sewer, water and pavement improvements in the area, potentially cutting down on costs by 20 per cent. The report also suggests council consider passing a bylaw requiring residents to maintain the grass in the boulevard in front of their house.
A screenshot from a City of Burnaby report shows a street before and after improvements made to bring it up to the municipality’s minimum standards.

Brentwood to get new industrial strata Janaya Fuller-Evans
An old industrial site near Brentwood is being transformed into an industrial strata property more than double its current square footage, according to developer PC Urban Properties Corporation. The Vancouver development company works on older and challenging properties that need redesigning and revitalizing.The IntraUrban Brentwood project is their first foray into Burnaby. The area itself was a big draw for the project, according Brent Sawchyn, principal developer with PC Urban Properties Corporation. “It’s a prime location because of how easy it is for small and medium sized businesses, it’s so convenient for them, given its location,” he said. The property at 5495 Regent St. is east of Willingdon Avenue in the Still Creek industrial area of Burnaby, near Brentwood. “It’s an incredibly desirable area,” Sawchyn said,
adding there is less and less industrial land available for development these days. “There’s no shortage of demand in the area.” “We haven’t had this kind of property in more than 20 years,” said Ryan Kerr, a principal with AvisonYoung. Kerr, the broker for the development, went on to say that 30 units, more than 100,000 square feet of industrial strata space, was replacing the older industrial and office building. “It was a single tenant in the past,” he said. Though the project has not yet had final approval from the city, there is already considerable interest, he added. The units are getting attention from a wide array of potential tenants, Kerr said, including contracting firms, bike companies, snack food companies, and companies that sell construction materials. Industrial strata prices have increased in Burnaby from $206 per square foot a decade ago to more than $400 per square foot now, according to AvisonYoung,
industrial space: A computer rendering of how the Brentwood space will look when it is finally completed. IMAGE CONTRIBUTED
because of supply constraints in part due to rezoning of industrial land in the area, as well as increasing demand. The project is expected to get final approval by September or October, according to Sawchyn. The City of Burnaby encourages projects, such as this one, that use and im-
prove upon existing industrial properties, according to Jim Wolf, the City of Burnaby’s senior long range planner. “Part of the overall local and regional strategy is to encourage redevelopment and intensification of existing sites to maximize the use of the region’s existing designated industrial
land base,”Wolf wrote in an email to the NOW. “Redevelopment of existing sites provides more opportunities for maximizing the intensification of available sites and adaptation to contemporary building forms that suit the needs of local businesses.” The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2019 or beginning of 2020.
Thinktank callsSunday 2018Tax FreedomDay Canadians were invited to “celebrate”Tax Freedom Day on Sunday by conservative think tank, the Fraser Institute. But based on the institute’s fact sheet on taxes, there was little to celebrate. Tax Freedom Day is considered the “day you start working for yourself,” according to the institute because, up until then, the income you’ve earned is equal to the amount of taxes the average family has paid. In 2018, the average Canadian family will earn $115,724 in income and pay a total of $50,464 in taxes (43.6 per cent), according to the institute. If the average Canadian family had to pay its total tax bill up front, it would have worked until June 9 to pay the total tax bill imposed on it by all three levels of government (federal, provincial, and local).

City now Employers fear new rules for pot Janaya Fuller-Evans
Burnaby businesses have to be careful not to let the stigma of marijuana use affect how they treat employees once it’s legalized, according to Ashley Mitchell, a labour and employment lawyer with Miller Thomson. Mitchell was speaking at the Burnaby Board of Trade annual general meeting on the subject of cannabis legalization, alongside Anne Dobson-Mack of WorkSafe B.C. “We do recommend that everyone treat it like you treat alcohol,” Mitchell told the crowd. The three areas of concern are employees using marijuana recreationally, medical marijuana use, and employees who claim to have developed an addiction, according to Mitchell. Businesses should develop clear impairment policies for the workplace that include marijuana, she said. “Basic principles regarding impairment in the workplace will continue,” she
Cannabis and business: More and more employers are wondering how to handle staff who smoke pot. PHOTO NOW FILES
told the audience. Mitchell advised business owners and managers to observe employees and watch for signs of impairment, rather than opting for drug testing. Drug testing for marijuana is different than blood alcohol testing, as impairment with alcohol drops at a steady pace. Marijuana metabolizes differently, and can stay in the blood stream for days or even weeks. Signs employers should
watch for include euphoria, a lack of motivation, lowered inhibitions, talkativeness, dry mouth and throat, increased appetite and impaired coordination, she said.There are courses available to help companies identify the signs. If an employee reports an addiction to marijuana, it should be handled the same way the company handles any addiction, she added. And if an employee reports medical marijuana
use, the situation needs to be handled very carefully, according to Mitchell. “The first question to consider is, is the employee in a safety sensitive position?” she said. Medical marijuana has been legal since 2001, so this is not a new issue, she added. Dobson-Mack also pointed out marijuana use is not a new issue, and it has always been accessible in the Lower Mainland. “Impairment of all sorts has been regulated for some time,” she said. She also shared statistics stating there has been a 61-per-cent increase in daily/weekly use by 2544-year-olds from 2007 to 2017, according to WorkSafe B.C. Any policies regarding marijuana use should be imposed carefully, and with the help of an employment lawyer, Dobson-Mack said. “Instead of relying on drug testing, take a fitness to work approach,” she added. “Is this worker fit to perform tasks involved with this worker’s job?”
Some Burnaby parents who were left scrambling to find summer child-care spaces are getting a reprieve, as their provider that was facing imminent eviction has been given an extension. Pastor Mark Lewis of the Central Christian Assembly church at the corner of Imperial Street and Kingsway said he decided to extend Sir Andrew’s Daycare’s eviction notice from June 30 to Aug. 31. He said he did so with the families who had signed up for summer programs with Sir Andrew’s in mind. He said the extension does not change the fact that the church wants to end its relationship with the daycare. Lewis previously told the NOW church leadership was unhappy with the daycare, which he said had been chronically behind on rent, among other issues. Sir Andrew’s manager and board chair both contest Lewis’s version of events that led to the eviction. The daycare’s manager, Linda Marsh-Beauchemin, said the extension will also give parents more time to find a new daycare between now and September. “Obviously we’re very excited because now we have 62 more days for our families to find placements and for us to maybe find another open door,” she said. But, she said, finding that “open door” is a challenge. There are limited spaces available that meet daycare regulations and those that do are often too expensive, according to Marsh-Beauchemin. But Marsh-Beauchemin and the board of Sir Andrew’s, which is not-for-profit, remain determined to find a new home where they hope to continue providing low-cost child-care services.

Pro tip: Read the entire ballot before voting
A common issue with journalists is that readers will complain about a story based on a headline or after only reading the first two paragraphs. A reader will lodge criticism at the journalist by listing points that, it turns out, are actually addressed in the story. Meaning, they didn’t read the news story until the very end. It turns out it’s the same thing for many people who vote in municipal elections.
Last week, the City of Vancouver voted to switch from an alphabetical to a randomized name order on the ballot for the 2018 civic election. The reason is that a city report cited evidence that people were voting for candidates with names that began with letters in the early part of the alphabet – meaning they didn’t scroll down to the end of the ballot form. (This might be why there are so few candidates with names that start
People were voting for candidates with names that began with letters in the early part of the alphabet. with Z, although Burnaby Councillors Nick Volkow and James Wang seem to have bucked the trend!) Recent Vancouver elections showed that many candidates with last names starting with A, B, C, and D were elected to city coun-
cil - six out 10 in 2005, four out of 10 in 2008 and 2011, and five out of 10 in 2014. This editorial isn’t about the decision to switch to a randomized name ballot, or to urge Burnaby council to consider making a change. We wouldn’t necessari-
ly mind if they did that, but we’re not sure incumbents with names like Corrigan or Calendino would be into it. No, this editorial is addressed to those few local residents who actually show up to vote in civic elections. We’re asking you to take the time to get to know who is running in the election, and then actually read the ballot all the way until the end before making your decision. It’s bad enough that only about one-quarter of eligible voters exercise their
democratic right in civic elections. But to think that those who are voting don’t bother to look at the entire ballot is distressing. During the next few months there will be ample amounts of information about all the candidates running. If you don’t think that the first letter of a candidate’s name makes a difference, consider who voted against the Vancouver motion: Adriane Carr, Melissa De Genova and Elizabeth Ball.

Greens played by the BC NDP
As they enter the second year of an agreement that keeps the current government in power, it’s worth checking to see how that deal has played out in terms of which party is really calling the shots in the legislature.The answer is obvious - the BC NDP is in charge, while the Greens have settled into a distant backseat on the government bus. One year in and the NDP has continued to build the Site C dam, welcomed an LNG industry with open arms and generous tax incentives, and shrunk its opposition to the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion to a narrowly defined court challenge that faces an uphill battle of succeeding. The Greens firmly oppose the dam and hate the LNG industry and that pipeline with equal amounts of venom.Yet all three are likely to proceed, as the LNG Canada project proposed for Kitimat inches closer to reality, and the federal government has now taken over the pipeline. The NDP has brought in various housing taxes that the Greens oppose.The Greens are big proponents of ridesharing and bridge tolls, but the NDP scrapped all tolls and continues to drag its feet on taking action on ridesharing. The government has also received a study on road pricing but has given no assurances it will move ahead. During the recently concluded spring legislative session, hardly a day went by that did not see Green leader Andrew Weaver denounce the ruling party. The NDP side of the
house merely smiled at all this huffing and puffing. It has become apparent the Greens will not topple the government, and the NDP knows it can push things to the edge. Weaver has vowed to bring the NDP government down if it allows the LNG industry to set up shop. He argues an LNG operation would make attaining emission targets virtually impossible. With an LNG Canada decision expected this fall, Weaver’s first opportunity to bring down the NDP from power would come during next spring’s confidence vote on the budget. I’ll be surprised if he goes that route (and it is far from clear whether the other two members of the Green caucus would vote the same way). The Greens have been a breath of fresh air.They have different policy ideas and differ markedly from the two parties on a number of fronts, and Weaver has emerged as a major voice. But for all the drama that surrounded the which-waywill-they-go dance they performed with the two parties in the aftermath of the last election, things since then have settled down along a mostly traditional majority government situation. The so-called Confidence and Supply Agreement remains intact and will likely hold for some time yet, perhaps all the way to the next scheduled election in the fall of 2021. But one year into that deal, it’s clear one party holds all the cards. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.

Thieves target trendy shades
They stole their sunglasses at night – and they did it so often a Metrotown shop owner put up a $1,000 reward to catch the trendy thieves in July. Burglars broke into United Optical six times in 18 months, targeting Vuarnet, RayBan and Porsche Carrera shades, all popular among the risingYuppie set. Owner Gary Efonoff estimated thieves had made off with between 150 and 200 pairs of the fashionable shades. Including some stolen sports bags and T-shirts, he said he was out $15,000 and was considering not selling high-end sunglasses anymore.

‘Death warrant’ signed
Rally was a cry for help
Editor: During the June 4 rally in front of MP Terry Beech’s office, a man in a blue jacket walked through the crowd while stating that he “support[s] the pipeline 100 per cent.” I responded that he wouldn’t if he lived close to the tank farm, with the associated risk of fire or worse. He replied, “I live four blocks from the tank farm.” Unthinkingly, I shot back, “Then, you’re signing your own death warrant.” I would like to apologize to this gentleman, and, instead of writing him off as some kind of ostrich with his head in the sand, I want to refer him – and those who think like him – to the documents that opened my eyes to the hazards of being a neighbour of this facility (and I live a whole two kilometres away – and we’re seriously looking for a safer place to move to). Please go to www.350Vancouver.org/kmtank farm/ and have a look at the articles and reports on that page. I would especially call your attention to the various summary articles and to the Trans Mountain Tank Farm Risk Analysis by Burnaby’s deputy fire chief Chris Bowcock, especially the accompanying photos and diagrams of the extent of the “high risk” area. Lastly, you might want to have a look at Bob Bossin’s short video tellingly called “Only one bear in a hundred bites, but they don’t come in order,” as revised May 14 of this year. All our lives are at risk right now – and the risk will only increase with the proposed expansion. Something to think about. Maxine Kaufman-Lacusta, Burnaby
Editor: On May 29, I attended a rezoning meeting at Burnaby City Hall. The meeting was well-attended, with every seat in the council chambers filled, and overflow seating and a video conferencing screen set up in the hallway. I believe the large attendance was due to what is called a protest rally against rezoning in the Metrotown area causing demovictions. I would not call it a protest rally; I would call it a plea for help in a crisis. Numerous speakers pleaded with the council members in attendance to reject the rezoning applications and not to raze the three-floor wood-frame rental apartment blocks and replace them with highrises. Councillors all sat stone-faced, listening to speaker after speaker tell of the hardships they and their neighbours will face in the zero-vacancyrate rental market. Some of the speakers were still in their teens, and other ages ranged all the way up to an 88-year-old gentleman. In one of the heated exchanges, Mayor Derek Corrigan called the lead spokesman for the group the most obnoxious person he has ever met. Think about that for a minute. The Burnaby Citizens Association has been in power for many years, and they have made many good decisions over this time, but their biggest failure that is going to haunt them was going ahead with rezoning Metrotown without taking into consideration the effect it would have on the renters, the schools and the infrastructure. As one speaker said, it’s just not affordable housing that is disappearing, it’s families. John McQuade, Delta

Platform changes: TransLink is making changes at the Lougheed SkyTrain station. IMAGE TRANSLINK
Platform changes coming to station
Important changes are coming to Burnaby’s Lougheed Town Centre SkyTrain Station. Starting June 25, passengers boarding Millennium Line trains at Lougheed Station will need to board at different platforms. To board a Millennium Line train heading towards VCC-Clark Station, customers should wait at platform 3, on the north side of the station and closest to
the mall. To board a Millennium Line train heading towards Lafarge Lake-Douglas Station, customers should wait at platform 1, on the south side of the station and furthest from the mall. Expo Line platforms will not change. “Currently, Millennium Line trains switch tracks several times before and after Lougheed Station, resulting in delays,” said a
TransLink news release. “This pattern was the best and easiest option to implement for the launch of the Evergreen Extension. “Having monitored train operations since then, we are confident we can move to a new pattern with minimal disruptions and operational risks. Once the change is in effect, trains will proceed more directly and efficiently through the station.”
At last. A smart, stylish hearing aid that provides maximum beneﬁt to those with hearing loss. The latest digital hearing aid technology solves the biggest challenge for hearing aid wearers–hearing well in noisy environments.‡
Can you see it?
Everything works automatically. There are no controls to worry about and adjustments are easy to make–even from your smart phone. So you can get back to enjoying your relationships, rather than thinking about your hearing. State-of-the-art dynamic features improve speech understanding signiﬁcantly, provide better noise management and focus on accurate ampliﬁcation in any environment. Take the first step to hearing better by getting a test. A FREE hearing test takes less than 60 minutes, you don’t need a doctor’s referral, and there’s no purchase required.

City now Province launches Hydro review Alan Campbell
The provincial government is launching a review of BC Hydro in a bid to reel in rate increases, control costs and to “position” the utility for “future success.” In the first of two phases, the review will work with BC Hydro to identify cost savings, efficiencies and new revenue streams to keep electricity rates low and predictable over the long-term. BC Hydro rates have gone up by 25 per cent since 2013, and by more than 70 per cent since 2001. An advisory group, consisting of staff from the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources, the Ministry of Finance and BC Hydro, will carry out the first phase of the review. Government expects recommendations from the first phase of the review this summer to “inform a refreshed rates plan, and assist BC Hydro in preparing its next rates application,” which will be filed with the B.C. Utilities Commission (BCUC) in February 2019.
MIDSUMMER FESTIVAL Burnaby BC, Canada
Power review: The province is reviewing the operation of BC Hydro. PHOTO NOW FILES
A report on the first phase of the review, and government’s response, will be released in the fall of 2018. In the second phase of the review - starting in late 2018 - the province will establish an expert panel, to provide recommendations to ensure BC Hydro is “well positioned to maximize opportunities flowing from shifts taking place in the global and regional energy sectors, technological change and climate action.” The second phase of the
review will be informed by new government strategies, including an energy roadmap for the future of B.C. energy and a new climate action strategy. Terms of reference for this second phase, including the makeup of the expert panel, will be finalized after the first phase of the review has been completed. It is anticipated that the panel will deliver its recommendations to government by summer or fall of 2019. On March 1, the BCUC
rejected BC Hydro’s request for a rate freeze, effective April 1, 2018. Instead, it approved an increase of three per cent, noting that even with the rate increase, BC Hydro is not able to fully recover its revenue requirements. BC Hydro has set up a Customer Crisis Fund pilot program for residential customers to avoid disconnection of their service when they are facing a temporary financial crisis, such as loss of employment.

Burnaby talents power new Canadian musical Julie MacLellan
Allegra Wright has pretty much always been a performer. She was in elementary school plays from a very young age, and she grew up surrounded by the performing arts – her mom was a professional dancer and dance teacher; her father was a musician and did some TV work. But it was her years at Burnaby Mountain Secondary that solidified her desire to pursue theatre more seriously. She had a bit part in a school play in Grade 8, then performed in its production of Hairspray in Grade 9 – and it was onwards and upwards from there. Wright went on to study at Douglas College and then went on to a musical theatre summer program at NewYork City’s Circle in

Cabbages can be kings of the vegetable garden Mark Cullen
Gardening with Mark
We recently received a question through Facebook: “What is the difference between cabbage and ornamental cabbage?” The quick answer is, “Not much.” Ornamental cabbage, also called flowering cabbage, has been bred for a showy appearance. Hybridizing has focused on the ornamental value of the plant while ignoring any concern for taste and flavour. The great attraction of ornamental cabbage, apart from its fabulous colour late in the season, is the fact that it peaks after several heavy frosts. It is a showy member of the Brassica family. If you have grown cabbage, you can easily grow your own ornamental cabbage. If you have never grown cabbage, we are here to help. By the way, this advice is applicable if you are growing any member of the cabbage family, or the brassicas.These include broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflow-
er, Chinese cabbage, turnip, bok choi, kohlrabi and kale. Now is the time to get started.

into the soil for you.
STEP ONE = SOIL PREP Your ultimate success in the veggie garden will depend on proper soil preparation.There is no better time of year than spring to take care of this ever-important task.We haul in a truckload of quality compost and begin the planting season by spreading it over Mark’s acre of veggie gardens and Ben’s allotment garden. Last year’s garden used up much of the nutrition in the soil. Spring is the time to replenish it with generous quantities of finished compost. Buy quality compost by the 20 kg bag at your favourite garden retailer and look for composted cattle or sheep manure that is certified by the Compost Quality Alliance. Spread it fivecentimetres thick and resist the temptation to dig it in, as that is an unnecessary step. Instead, let the earthworms work your compost
CABBAGE Plant transplants in your garden now.We use a cold frame for protection while hardening off young seedlings, but if you purchase yours from a retailer you can plant them directly into the soil now that it has warmed up. Set out transplants when all danger of frost has passed. Choose a location in full sun. Allow 45 cm between plants. If your goal is to produce smaller heads of cabbage, reduce the spacing between plants. If you are gardening in limited space, look for compact growing varieties. Cabbage requires warm, rich, well-drained soil.The plants have a shallow root system which makes them sensitive to weeds and uneven watering.Water plants deeply once a week. Be sure to remove weeds by hand to avoid damaging roots.Water deeply after weeding to help roots recover from any disturbance. We recommend shredded

cedar bark mulch around each plant.This helps to significantly reduce the growth of weeds and premature splitting of the cabbage head, and it retains moisture in the soil. Use a “veggie tunnel” to protect your crop from common insect problems and sun scald. A tunnel is a loosely spun polyester cover that is suspended by U-shaped supports, which allows sun and moisture in but keeps insects such as the cabbage moth and flea beetles out. It’s an effective, chemical-free pest

ASK A PHARMACIST
It seems Spring is here... but how do I deal with my allergies?
In most people, an allergen something that triggers an allergy - sets their symptoms off. Spring attacks are usually due to tree pollen, while grass Elaine & Miguel pollens dominate in the summer and Your Pharmasave Pharmacists weed pollens in the autumn. Symptoms include runny nose; sneezing; itchy nose, mouth, throat, or eyes; and congestion. Tearing, coughing, sore throat, wheezing, and headache can also occur. The best way to prevent allergies is to avoid the allergen. Also, clean furniture that collects dust (e.g., carpets, draperies, upholstery), use air conditioning, put dust mite covers on mattresses, wash ﬂoors, install a HEPA ﬁlter, remove houseplants (a common source of mould), and stay indoors during high pollen times. It is not always possible to eliminate or avoid allergens, and many people need medications for relief. The most commonly used treatments for allergy symptoms are oral antihistamines, nose sprays, or eye drops. People with certain medical conditions (e.g., high blood pressure, diabetes, glaucoma, prostate problems) should consult their pharmacist before using allergy medications.

Mortgages getting harder to qualify for. The benchmark rate (qualifying rate) of 5.34% is set by the Bank of Canada, which is basically an average of the 5 year ﬁxed posted rates from the big banks. Mortgage qualiﬁcation is done by using the higher of the benchmark rate or 2% above your contract rate. Your contract rate being the rate your payments are based on. For example, with a 5 year variable rate at 2.21% (prime -1.24%), you would have to qualify as if your payments were at the rate of 5.34%. 2% above 2.21% is only 4.21%, so the qualifying rate would be 5.34%, since that is the higher of the two. With a 5 year ﬁxed rate at 3.49%, 2.00% above this rate would be 5.49%. As this is higher than the 5.34% benchmark rate, your qualiﬁcation would be based on 5.49%. This is what is referred to as the Stress Test. You need to qualify based on a higher rate, which is to protect you against rising rates. In other words, it ensures that you will still be able to afford to make your mortgage payments if rates were to rise higher. As we are now in a rising rate environment, this not a bad idea actually, and is a pretty decent example of forward thinking. It’s just frustrating when you are shopping for a home and the maximum amount you qualify for continues to decrease. A year ago, the qualifying rate was 4.64% and you could still qualify for 5 year ﬁxed mortgages based on your contract rate… providing you had at least 20% down payment. (this changed January 1st, 2018). To give you an idea of how much impact this has, a couple with a $120,000 household income would have qualiﬁed for a mortgage as high as $800,000 a year ago. Today, that same couple would only qualify for around $600,000.

3 ways to pay off your mortgage faster:
1.Set up biweekly payments : One of the easiest ways to help you pay off your mortgage faster is to make biweekly mortgage payments. Through this arrangement, you pay half HOWARD LOUIE the required monthly amount every two Manager, Mortgage Broker weeks, which should not affect your monthly budget. 2.Make additional payments throughout the year: You can also make additional full payments on your mortgage throughout the year. One extra payment will make a big difference, but one every quarter will help you pay down the mortgage faster. 3.Live simply and reduce unnecessary spending: Making small sacriﬁces in your day-to-day life can help you save additional money that you can apply toward your mortgage. Rather than eating out for lunch, grabbing a cup of coffee in the morning, or otherwise spending frivolously, cut your unnecessary expenses and put that money toward your monthly payments.

If I had a dollar for each time I heard someone say cooking is a chore, I would be a rich man.The act of cooking a meal is just that, “cooking a meal.” It is not negative, or even positive for that matter, it is just something we do. We all need food to stay alive, and since our homes are all equipped with kitchens, we cook. Maybe some of us more than others, but we all still cook. Some kitchens will have their owner’s unharnessed culinary passions bestowed upon them on a daily basis, while the only glory days in other kitchens may be derived from someone adding onions and garlic to a saucepan of store-bought pasta sauce. I hate to even imagine there is a percentage of our population that rely on daily practices of consuming products like TV dinners, frozen pizzas and spray can

pancake batter.Yes, I did say “spray can pancake batter.” Talking with employees of a large grocery chain, they tell me they are bombarded with requests for pre-prepared meals. Is there really a growing number of people in our society that have succumbed to rely on premade meals from a package or container?

Turns out there’s one more Burnaby name to add to that list: Lois Anderson. The Cariboo Hill Secondary graduate is directing this year’s production of Lysistrata – an adaptation of Aristophanes’ comedy created by Anderson and Jennifer Wise. Anderson is a familiar name for Bard-goers – among other honours, she earned a Jessie Award for Outstanding Direction for her direction of Pericles in the Bard’s 2016 season. Check out www.bardon thebeach.org for all the details about this year’s season (and to snag your tickets for Lysistrata now). A DAY FOR ART LOVERS Art lovers, save the date: July 7 will be a big day at
Deer Lake Gallery. For one thing, it’s the Deer Lake Summer Arts Festival, with kids’ activities, artisan market, the popular Park’s Edge Paint Off and performance by the Burnaby Summer Troupe all on the agenda.There’s even a beer garden. For another, it’s also opening day for Tricksters Laugh, an exhibition featuring the work of artists Alanna Edwards and Geronimo.There’s a welcoming ceremony for the exhibition starting at 11 a.m. Plus, the unveiling of the 2018 Deer Lake Gallery mural project – which has been awarded to Kwakwee Baker – will occur that day. The gallery is at 6584 Deer Lake Ave., and admission and parking are free. See www.burnabyarts council.org or call 604-2987322 for information. Do you have an item for Lively City?

Elite team draws top Burnaby players
Burnaby’s top female soccer talent is part of the mix on a team playing at the highest level in the province. TSS Academy launched a women’s team this year after debuting a men’s premier development league team last year. Burnaby’s Emma Regan, Kaela Hansen, Julia Grosso and Siena Porth have all committed to the TSS Rovers this summer and will play elite teams as part of the Northwest Conference of the Women’s Premier Soccer League, which in-
cludes teams from Oregon and Washington. “We have a lot of really accomplished players,” explained coach Brendan Quarry. “This is the highest level (of soccer) in B.C. on the female side.” Grosso belongs to the senior national team and Regan has played on the U20 national team. Playing on the TSS Rovers gives these soccer players exposure to highly competitive games before they head off to university to play – this September, Regan and Grosso will head to the University of Texas and Hansen will be playing
with Kansas University. The TSS Rovers, created as a continuation of the Whitecaps REX program, draws on soccer talent from around the Lower Mainland. Quarry coached some of the girls as young teens, and he’s happy to see them back on the pitch. He’s been coaching younger female players for 20 years, but coaching more experienced players is whole different ballgame.With younger players, Quarry focuses more on technique; with the TSS Rovers, the focus is on tactics and components of the game.
The TSS Rovers started their season with a 4-2 win over THUSC Diamonds in late May. The game began with two goals by the TSS Rovers, followed by the Diamonds bringing the score to 2-1.The second half saw the teams scoring back-andforth, first TSS Rovers, then the Diamonds, and finally Regan scored the final goal to end the game 4-2 for the Rovers. “They were chasing us and making it interesting,” Quarry said. “We have a very technical group of players.We’re not a very direct team – passing in
small triangles up the field. It’s nice to watch – nice to play.” The long-term goal is to create a team environment where the players want to return every summer to play.With 22 players on the roster, the team has a lot of depth, which allows them to play back-to-back games. Quarry hopes the team gels this year. “It’s about the players becoming more comfortable with each other,” Quarry explained. “They come from different environments, different styles at university.They’re learning to trust each other.”
Grosso said playing on the TSS Rovers will be a good introduction to a higher level of play before she goes to play at the University of Texas this fall. “It helps me in the speed of the game and to prepare mentally and physically for what’s to come at university,” she said. The women in the Women’s Premier Soccer League are bigger and stronger, she added, which will make her play faster and think faster. The Rovers will play the Seattle Sounders this Sunday, June 17 at 2 p.m. at Swangard.
Sinclair nears international goals record Burnaby’s Christine Sinclair, captain of the Canadian women’s national soccer team, is just 11 goals away from smashing the world record for most international goals. Sinclair scored the first goal at Sunday’s first home match of 2018 against Germany in Hamilton, Ont., her 173rd international goal. Sinclair’s goal tied the game 1-1 in the 59th minute with a header over the keeper into an open net, and with a goal from teammate Jessie Fleming, Canada was up 2-1. But a minute later, Germany evened out the score to 2-2, and a final goal from the European team in the 84th minute meant a disappointing 3-2 loss for the Canadian women. “The only thing we asked of these players was to leave everything on the pitch, and I think they did,” said Canadian women’s national team head coach Kenneth Heiner-Moller, calling his team “one incredibly resilient team.” “We are obviously disappointed we lost and the way we started the game, but I think this is one of those games that we will be able to look back on and be proud of our performance and know we can build on it,” Sinclair said after the match. “We are in a good space as a team. If you look at the teams we have played this year, they’ve all been top teams in the world, and we have done pretty well. I think we are moving in the right direction and keep adding to our team, which is exciting.Tonight we took a new formation against one of the top teams in the world, and to walk away with the performance we did, it adds another dimension to our team and we will be heading into the upcoming qualifiers confident.” The U.S.A.’s Abby Wombach holds the world record of 184 international goals.

Sandi was born and raised in Vancouver and she died peacefully in New Westminster where she lived for nearly 45 years. She will be lovingly remembered by her 4 children Steven (Jody Aspin), Karen (Peter Palm), Tina (Joe Arial), Susan (Peter Foster), granddaughter Jolina Arial, step-grandson Chris Aspin, her brothers; Gary (Tracy) and David (Eleanor May) Thompson, and many nephews and friends. We invite you to join us at 2:00pm on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at the Edmonds Community Centre in Burnaby to share memories and laughs as we say farewell to our beloved Mother, Sister, Grandma, Aunt and Friend.
MCKINLEY, Shirley Jean February 2, 1945 - May 25, 2018 Shirley was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and met and married her loving husband Bob of 35 years in New Westminster, BC. She passed away after a long, brave battle with cancer. Shirley loved helping people who were less fortunate than herself. She had such a loving heart and gave so much of herself to others. Shirley ran an Agape program for adults with disabilities in New Westminster for many years. She was involved in her church by playing piano at Sunday services and had a loving voice that brought joy to many. Shirley is well remembered by her students that she greatly influenced during her career at Douglas College in the Nursing Department. We would like to give thanks to the nurses at Laurel Place Hospice in Surrey for their excellent care and expertise. Also, to her step sister Geraldine Patz who spent many days by her side, dedicated to her sister. A memorial service will be held at Westminster Bible Chapel at 7540 6th Street, Burnaby at 2 pm on Saturday, June 16th. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Agape Fellowship Society, 918 Henley Street, New Westminster, V3M 4C1.
