Citynow IN BRIEF

City details how gas tax cash spent More than $2.5 million from a tax on gasoline has paid for infrastructure improvements in Burnaby in the last three years. Every year, the City of Burnaby receives money from a fund created by an agreement between federal and provincial governments and the Union of B.C. Municipalities signed in 2014. From 2014 to the end of 2017 the municipality received $2,869,771 and spent most of it on local projects meant to improve economic productivity while protecting the environment, according to a city report. The lion’s share of the cash ($895,600) went towards paving local roads, followed by riverside area improvements ($687,000) and LED streetlight conversions ($200,000). The city expects to receive more than $750,000 in 2018, which it plans to spend on fibre network installation, an exterior walkway at the Shadbolt Centre and replacing the running track at Swangard Stadium. – Kelvin Gawley

City eyes government pot shops first Coun. Jordan says future rules on cannabis stores should align with liquor store framework Lauren Boothby

editorial@burnabynow.com

While buying and selling cannabis isn’t currently allowed in Burnaby, the rules could be changing in the near future. The city is looking at regulating cannabis in the same way it regulates alcohol. Burnaby’s liquor store framework allowed for private liquor stores only after a larger provincially-owned BC Liquor Store was built in each of Burnaby’s four town centres. In a similar model, the city would consider private, licensed cannabis sell-

ers only after a governmentowned store has been built in that area of the city. Coun. Colleen Jordan said that although some have expressed interest in private cannabis businesses, the city wants provincial stores built first. “Now that the province has said we want public and private opportunities, we said we’ll start with public and then, in the future, consider if there will be opportunities for private, and what the rules will be around that,” she told the NOW. “We don’t want a proliferation of stores on every corner, but we’re not saying

we’re closing the door entirely like some other cities.” Jordan said the city doesn’t have a comparable situation to Vancouver, where medical marijuana dispensaries have been permitted, because Burnaby uses a federal police force. “Vancouver is completely different than we are … we never had the proliferation of private sellers in our community that others have had,” she said. “We’re starting from scratch relative to what others may be doing. It’s all such uncharted territory.” Mayor Derek Corrigan previously told the NOW that regulating marijua-

na like alcohol was an “attractive” option, as it would help keep drugs out of the hands of minors, and licensing businesses would keep them accountable. He said Vancouver’s approach, which has allowed pot shops to operate as long as they were licensed by the city, is “anarchy to me.” Neither cannabis retail storefronts or medical marijuana dispensaries are currently allowed in Burnaby’s zoning bylaws. But an update to the zoning bylaw passed second reading in March, changing the term “medical marijuana” to “cannabis production” for allowed use

in industrial zones, as long as it is included as part of the comprehensive development plan subject to the comprehensive development district. Council passed a bylaw forcing all marijuana operations into industrial zones in 2013. Canadians will be able to legally buy cannabis on October 17. The BC Liquor Distribution Branch will operate provincial-owned cannabis retail stores, and the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch will regulate private cannabis retail stores. –With files from Jeremy Deutsch

The New Westminster & District Labour Council may have spurned all but one Burnaby Citizens Association council candidate ahead of October’s municipal election, but the same doesn’t hold true for the civic party’s school board hopefuls. The Burnaby-based labour organization voted last month to endorse all seven of the NDP-affiliated party’s trustee candidates. Incumbents Larry Hayes and Gary Wong got the labour nod, as did rookie candidates Bill Brassington Jr., Peter Cech, Surash Bhayana, Jen Mezei and Ryan Stewart. BCA council contenders fared less well with the NWDLC at the same meeting. Only Baljinder Narang, who hopes to make the jump from school board to council in October, got the labour organization’s endorsement. All of the current sitting BCA councillors were passed over. – Cornelia Naylor

COURT

Legion suing lawyer over troubled land deal Local branch seeks damages after project fizzles

North Burnaby’s legion is taking its former lawyer to court for his role in a real estate deal that went sour. Royal Canadian Legion #148 is suing Anthony H.S. Knight and his firm, McMillan LLP. The legion hired Knight in 2012 to represent its interests during an exchange deal for its Hastings Street property with developer Epta Properties, according to the legion’s May 15 filing in B.C. Supreme Court. None of the claims have been proven in court. Knight has yet to file a response and declined to comment when reached by the NOW. “Under the express or implied terms of the retainer, the defendants (Knight and McMIllan LLP) agreed

to exercise the skill and diligence of a reasonably competent solicitor in carrying out the instructions of the plaintiff,” the filings read. The deal, the legion claims, would have given the legion a four-storey section of the multi-use building Epta planned to build. Epta demolished the old legion hall but never replaced it with the planned building meant to include a new canteen, offices and rental space for the legion. “It turned out we ended up turning the property over to Epta on an agreement that wasn’t worth the paper it was written on,” Dave Taylor, former branch 148 president, told the NOW in 2017. The legion’s lawsuit claims Knight failed to legally protect them in the deal signed with Epta. The legion is seeking

“damages, including special damages” from Knight and his firm but the court documents to not specify a dollar amount. The legion sold the fivelot property between Rosser and Madison avenues to another developer, Beedie, in 2016.That deal came with its own controversy that opened a rift between Legion 148 and its overseeing body, B.C./Yukon Command. Beedie now plans to build a five-storey multi-use building on the property, including a new bar on the ground floor that would be owned by Legion 148 with apartments in the floors above. The proposal has had a public hearing and is currently before Burnaby city council.

City now Drug dealer ordered to pay $35K toxic drugs. Pipping and Summers face another civil suit from the province’s director of civil forfeiture, who is going after a car owned by Summers and nearly $1.5 million in alleged drug money seized from the Burnaby, Richmond and Surrey residences. None of the allegations made in the lawsuits have been proven in court.

Cornelia Naylor

cnaylor@burnabynow.com

A convicted drug dealer has been ordered to pay $35,000 in restitution to a Burnaby homeowner whose rental apartment was used to process deadly drugs, including fentanyl, heroin and cocaine. Scott Pipping, 36, was convicted in May on 10 counts of drug trafficking, possession for the purpose of trafficking, producing a controlled substance and firearm offences in connection with a dial-a-dope operation busted in March 2016 after a yearlong investigation by Delta police. On June 29, Pipping was handed a 15-year jail term and ordered to pay $35,000 to Mani Ranjbar, whose Prenter Street apartment was used as a clandestine drug lab in the operation. Pipping’s co-accused, Adam Summers, 28, was sentenced the same day to five years in jail. Pipping was understood to be Summers’ boss in the scheme, according to earlier court documents.

6893 Prenter St. was one of three homes searched in March 2016 in connection with the drug bust. The other two were in Richmond and Surrey. According to a lawsuit launched by Ranjbar, the local landlord had rented out the suite to a Stephen Takeshi Tajiri. Ranjbar, a businessman and SFU computer science PhD candidate, alleges Tajiri then gave the drug dealers access to the suite. Ranjbar said he first found out about the clandestine drug lab three days

after police executed their search warrant on his rental unit. Ranjbar is suing Tajiri, Pipping, Summers and an unnamed woman for the destruction of appliances and fixtures in the apartment and for the contamination of the suite with fentanyl and other toxic chemicals. He said the contamination had made the apartment “a serious threat to life” and that he had had to pay for multiple inspections to make sure the place was properly decontaminated of

A couple at home in Vernon got a scary surprise last Thursday morning when a truck driven by a Burnaby man plowed backwards into a retaining wall by their house, hitting part of the home’s roof. At about 9 a.m., the driver, unfamiliar with the area, had attempted to drive the five-ton delivery truck up a steep hill, known locally as suicide hill, when he apparently lost control of the vehicle and began rolling backwards, according to Vernon RCMP.The brakes had “allegedly failed,” police reported. “Fortunately no one was injured during this incident; however, both the truck and the residential property suffered extensive

damage,” stated Vernon RCMP Const. Kelly Brett in a press release. Brett said the man had been issued a “notice and order” requiring him to get the truck inspected and any defects repaired. The investigation was handed over to British Columbia Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement, according to police. “The investigation into the cause of the incident is ongoing and the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP will continue to support the B.C. CVSE,” Brett said. The ministry of transportation, however, told the NOW the CVSE doesn’t get involved in a crash unless the RCMP decide a mechanical inspection of the involved vehicle is needed, and no such request had been made in the case as of press deadline according to the ministry.

Opinion now OUR VIEW

Transit should be a safe place for everyone

When you take transit in the coming months, you’ll see a consistent message on SkyTrain and buses. The message is about stopping sexual offending, particularly on transit. Being a woman on transit can be an ugly experience. Men taking liberties with their hands as they squeeze by on a crowded SkyTrain car and feigning that it’s an accident. Drunk dudes harassing women at bus stops and SkyTrain stations because they think they’re

“charming.” Or flat-out sexual assaults involving unwanted touching. It’s got to stop. To do this, the Transit Police have launched a new campaign to create an “unwelcome environment” for anyone committing these vile acts. The messaging will be spread through 340 ad spaces allocated on SkyTrain cars, 15 ads at SkyTrain stations in addition to LCD screens, 300 ads on buses and 15 bus loop

ads, including at Lougheed and Edmonds exchanges in Burnaby. An additional 35 platform posters will be placed at SkyTrain stations in mid-July and a partnership with Metro Vancouver Crime Stoppers will provide advertising support across Metro Vancouver, throughout the summer. The campaign has been developed in consultation with such groups as Battered Women’s Support Services to come up with the kind of messaging that

people will remember. The fact that we need an ad campaign to tell men not to sexually harass and assault others is a pathetic commentary on our society, but here we are. So pay attention. If you know someone who thinks this disgusting behaviour is OK, then confront them. If you see this activity taking place on transit, text 87-77-77 and report it. Get involved. Be part of the solution.

HERO WORSHIP

We would be remiss if we didn’t take a moment to recognize two very different heroes. The first is nine-year-old Tony Leong of Burnaby, who has been honoured for his bravery and quick-thinking in pulling a kindergartner safely from the path of an oncoming car on May 31. The second is Bosco, a police dog who risked life and paws to capture a se-

rial bank robber during a takedown in Burnaby.The robber was known to carry guns and even grenades to commit his crimes.Thankfully, Bosco was able to put the bite on him before he could hurt anyone. The images of heroes are usually associated with Marvel movies – people with superpowers.The reality is, heroes are ordinary people - and animals - who find a way to step up when life demands it. We applaud them both.

INBOX KEITH BALDREY

Pro-PR must keep it simple The campaign on whether or not to change B.C.’s voting system is officially underway, but it looks like a tricky race to handicap. The vast majority of the public simply does not spend a lot of time thinking about voting systems. It is a safe bet that not many backyard barbecues will feature spirited debates over the merits of “rural urban PR” versus “dual member proportional.” Perhaps by the time the referendum mail-in period rolls around (Oct. 22 to Nov. 1) people will become more engaged in the subject. This lack of interest may provide the side that opposes switching to proportional representation a bit of an edge over PR proponents. That is because everyone is familiar with the current first-past-the-post system, and knows its strengths and its shortcomings. The challenge for the pro-PR side is to present evidence that another system (the three options on the ballot are quite different from the status quo) is better. This is where things can get tricky for the pro-PR side.The proposed models are not easily explained or grasped (two of them have never actually been used) and it will be an uphill task getting people interested in the topic and then diving in to actually study the options. Still, the “yes” side will have $500,000 of your tax money to spend on wooing and educating the public and that will definitely have

some impact. Of course, the “no” side will have the same budget provided for them, so get ready for some spirited ad wars. The victor in this campaign will be the side that offers the most direct and effective message, and that actually convinces enough people to actually take the time and mail in a ballot. Look for the pro-PR side to argue their systems are “fairer” because any seat count will more accurately reflect the outcome of the actual popular vote.That is a simple concept. However, if this side clutters things up with a detailed breakdown of how each system will operate, I think its messaging will be in trouble. Any political party will tell you that the simpler the message, the simpler it is to sell it.The need for this simplicity will likely favour the anti-PR side. The “no” side will brand PR as confusing and even dangerous, arguing it could allow fringe parties to hold the keys to power. That is a straightforward message.The anti-PR side has to be careful not to overdo it when it comes to castigating PR systems, or going too far in insisting the status quo FPTP system is so much better than any alternative. In any event, $1 million of your tax dollars are about to spent on this campaign. You might as well read up on it. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global BC.

Flag flown to show unity

The Fleurdelisé was flown above Burnaby city hall ahead of Quebec’s Oct. 30 sovereignty referendum. City council voted to fly the flag after hearing a letter from a federalist group known as Alliance Quebec. Coun. Doreen Lawson said the gesture, showing Quebecers that Burnaby wants them to remain part of Canada, was important. She characterized the relationship between Quebec and the other provinces as not unlike the differences in any family. “I hope Quebec votes ‘No’ and chooses to stay in this great country we call Canada,” she said.

Opinionnow Editor: Re: Time to clean up the protest camp, Burnaby NOW, Letters, July 4. I and many like-minded neighbours resent Yonie Cheung speaking on behalf of the residents of the Forest Grove neighbourhood against the “inconvenience” of the protest camp outside the Kinder Morgan Burnaby Mountain site. But resentment has turned to bemused headshaking at this impassioned condemnation of a temporary site built for an environmental cause. Has Cheung never once seen the tank “farm” and the pipelines all across Burnaby Mountain as an eyesore? Or a potential fire storm? Or even a doomed reliance on fossil fuels? Or (likely paramount) as a lowering of their precious property values? Out of sight behind a few trees and out of mind, I guess. As another longtime resident, I and many others I’ve spoken to respect and admire the dedication of the protesters. So grateful that these days, with so many other issues calling me to a protest march, these few souls are taking on Kinder Morgan and the Trudeau government on my behalf. Janis Rutherford, Burnaby

Camp Cloud an eyesore Editor: I do not understand why people are being allowed to build shacks, camp and dump broken down trailers on Shellmont Street across from the oil tanks. I am certain that this is against the law and regardless of the mayor’s sympathies, it is his job to ensure the law is enforced in Burnaby. The site is a disgusting eyesore. It is also an

incredible fire hazard. I would like to know what responsibility is Burnaby going to take if there is a forest fire on the mountain? This is a much greater environmental risk than the completion of the pipeline. Corbyn Sunderland, Burnaby

Democracy is evil Editor: Re: Take back the government, Burnaby NOW, Letters, July 6. Victor Finberg makes the classic assumption that democracy is a good thing, and he then calls for “making it better.” Chris Campbell does too with his glowing editorials on democracy. These two will now learn, to their horror, that democracy is an inherently flawed, evil, and criminal form of government. Democracy is substantially less heinous than autocracy is, but this does not imply that it is good. It is but the lesser of these two evil governmental types. What’s more, democracy can’t be “improved.” A given political system is either good or evil; there’s no possibility of “making it better.” Democracy is a heinous system because (a) political groups such as the Conservatives, Liberals, Socialists and Greens are obviously evil and (b) more damningly, common people are – how do I put this? – not good. The average Tom, Dick and Harry and the average Mary, Jane and Sally neither know nor care greatly about the societal economy, environment, animals, justice, safety, etc. Most people – society as a whole – are self-centred or of distasteful or evil philosophy, making them unsuitable for politics. Only a rare few are philosophically good. Thang Vu, Burnaby

More words start with the letter ‘S’ than any other letter. But if you have a hearing loss it can feel as though those words have been removed from your hearing dictionary.

City now Transit campaign targets harassment and assaults Lauren Boothby

editorial@burnabynow.com

Metro Vancouver Transit Police are bringing back an ad campaign this month hoping to reduce the number of sexual assaults on public transit. The more than 650 ads on buses, trains, and at SkyTrain stations and bus stops, are intended to create an unwelcome environment for people to sexually harass and assault others. The campaign also encourages riders to report any incidents they witness. “All passengers using our transit system have the right to travel without fear of being assaulted or harassed,” Transit Police Chief Const. Doug LePard said in a press release. “It is our commitment at Metro Vancouver Transit Police to provide that safe ride, and to let passengers know that any sex offence reported to us by victims or witnesses will be taken seriously and investigated thor-

oughly.” Police are starting the campaign this month as they say a higher number of sex offences are reported in the spring and summer months. According to Transit Police spokesperson Anne

Drennan, the number of sexual assaults investigated in 2017 was down from 2016. But that could mean a decrease in number of offences reported, not the number of assaults. “It is widely believed that less than 10 per cent of all sexual offences are reported to police, including on transit,” she told the NOW. “One of the focuses of the campaign is to encourage both victims and witnesses to report sexual offences to us so we can begin support for the victim, and initiate an investigation leading to arrest and prosecution of the offender.” Increasing the length and visibility of ads on trains, and on buses at the SkyTrain stations were some recommendations that came out of the last campaign in November 2016. That campaign aimed to tell transit riders that “unwanted touching is a crime.” It included 80 posters on SkyTrain cars for two months.

IN HIS ELEMENT: Clarke Bayles was diagnosed in his mid-20s with primary sclerosing cholangitis, an autoimmune disease that

attacks the liver. He was barely 30 years old when he had a liver transplant that saved his life. Today he is a healthy 38-year-old raising two kids with his wife in Burnaby. Last week, Bayles won gold in two cycling events at the 2018 Canadian Transplant Games held in Vancouver. PHOTO

‘I feel I’ve been very fortunate’ Burnaby resident rekindles his passion for cycling after transplant Cayley Dobie

cdobie@burnabynow.com

Clarke Bayles was 25 years old when he was diagnosed with primary sclerosing cholangitis, an autoimmune disease that attacks the liver. He was an active young man and didn’t have any medical problems, but one day, after buzzing his hair, he noticed a few small bald patches. Concerned, he went to see his doctor, who recommended he have some blood work done. “They called me the next day and said, ‘You gotta come back in,’” he said. “It took a while to figure out.” Bayles was sent to a hepatologist who monitored him for a short while before diagnosing him with primary sclerosing cholangitis. After the diagnosis, Bayles remembers not being too worried about the whole thing. He wasn’t showing any symptoms, he didn’t feel any different, it was as if nothing had changed. “And even then they said, ‘You might not ever need a transplant, you might need

a transplant when you’re 60, but it progressed faster than anybody expected it would,” he said. At 29, Bayles took a turn for the worst. He got very sick very quickly and a transplant was inevitable.

It was like no big deal until I did start losing weight…

“It was like no big deal until I did start losing weight and retaining water, and then when I went quite jaundiced, maybe six months before my transplant, … and people would notice it in my eyes and that’s when I really became aware of it and sort of selfconscious of it too,” he said. Two weeks before his wedding, Bayles was put on the transplant list. He was on that list for about 16 weeks and then shortly after his 30th birthday, he

received a life-saving liver transplant. “I just really nosedived. I was relatively young, and I still had some health, and they just wanted to get me transplanted before I deteriorated anymore,” he said. After 21 days in hospital (longer than normal because of complications), Bayles was home and ready to get moving. He eventually found himself on a bike again, out for a gentle ride with his wife. From there it snowballed, he said. “I got into cycling after I had my transplant just as a way to regain some fitness, and then I sort of rekindled my interest,” he said. “I’m kind of a competitive person so it kind of satisfied that. Every year it’s been ratcheting up.” In 2012, he started riding regularly, and he hasn’t stopped. He’s biked 60,000 kilometres in the last six years. He rides to work every day (he’s an instructor at BCIT), and last week he competed in two cycling races at the 2018 Canadian Transplant Games. “You go there to be around people who’ve had

similar experiences in life,” he said. This year’s games were held at UBC from July 2 to 7, with more than 300 transplant recipients and donors from across the country facing off in a variety of competitions. Bayles won gold in both his races. “I feel I’ve been very fortunate, and maybe I would be a slightly better cyclist if I hadn’t had the transplant, but I’m hanging in there as it is,” he said.

Burnaby’s Phil Seo recently bought a McDonald’s dinner for a homeless man in Vancouver. He started asking the man about his life and learned that he used to be a construction worker but hurt his back, then lost his job, couldn’t keep up with his bills and ended up on the streets. “He was just a regular person – it could happen to anybody,” Phil said. Helping others, giving back and volunteering is the message Phil wants to send to the two million people expected to watch him and his sister, Martina, as the sixth season of Amazing Race Canada unfolds. “If two million people did something good – could you imagine?” he said. “That’s what I hope to get out of it.” This brother-sister pair applied their very different skill sets on a race across Canada – this has all been documented and filmed for CTV on the Amazing Race Canada: Heroes Edition.This season features everyday heroes, people who have given back to their communities, and between Martina and Phil, they’ve put in at least 10,000 hours of volunteering. Phil’s volunteering started in elementary school when he was elected student council president. In high school, he was again student council president, but he also coached roller hockey with the North Shore Kinsmen Inline Hockey League. “I was the youngest coach – everyone else was a dad with a kid, and I was 16,” he said. For the past 15 years, he’s been volunteering at the University of British Columbia, mentoring students. Martina’s volunteering goes back to her university days – she started Street Beat Sandwich Ministries, and she and a group of friends ended up making almost 40,000 sandwiches over two years for people on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Volunteering has always been part of the Seo family, something they just did, the brother and sister explained.Their parents were among the first Korean im-

migrants arriving on the West Coast and the first ones in North Vancouver. They arrived in the 1970s with no jobs and no English and they struggled in their early years. “I think we volunteered a lot because we saw it from our parents – our parents role-modelled it for us,” Martina said. Throughout their childhood, their parents were constantly helping other new immigrants from Korea get oriented in their new homeland. Korean families would call them from the airport and ask to be picked up, they’d ask for help with filling out papers, dealing with schools – sometimes a Korean family would stay with them till they got their own home. Phil was a huge fan of Amazing Race and when they were looking for people for their Heroes Edition, he asked his sister to try out with him. The brother-sister pair had to make a three-minute audition tape, which they filmed in Phil’s home in Burnaby. “She talks a lot so I had to edit it down,” Phil said about their 20 minutes of video. Friends and family also nominated the pair and eventually they were chosen for the sixth season of the Amazing Race Canada that started at Hatley Castle in Victoria, B.C. Martina’s and Phil’s personalities are very different and they have different skills – Martina exudes a larger-than-life positivity and has good social skills while Phil is analytical. When Martina’s energy bubbles over and pushes her all over the place, her brother brings her back to earth and focuses her energy on the task at hand. “We have very complementary skills – I’m really outgoing and energetic and he’s really good at math and he’s very strategic,” Martina said. “He gets me to focus all of my energy.” The journey Martina and Phil took, both physically and emotionally, brought them together. “We only had each other during the race – we had no one else,” Martina said. “We had to work things out and we had to figure out where each other was coming from.”

Pandas invade Metropolis An art installation of 888 papier-mâché pandas by French artist Paulo Grangeon is making its first North American appearance at Metropolis at Metrotown. After being showcased around the world in over 100 exhibits, 1600 Pandas+ will be in Burnaby from July 11 until Aug. 8. The exhibit 1600 Pandas+ World Tour in Canada will raise awareness of wildlife conservation, pandas and sustainability. All proceeds from this exhibit will be donated to WWF Canada to fund wildlife conservation research and education. The exhibition will feature various activities, including a selfie station, contests that offer a chance to win a trip for four to see the pandas at the Calgary Zoo, and panda adoption. Visitors who would like to adopt a papier-mâché panda can pre-register at the exhibit by donating to WWF

Canada and will be able to pick up their panda after the exhibit concludes. Panda adoption is only available in person at the exhibit. Visitors can share their experience through posts, photos, and videos using the hashtag #1600Pandas+CA for a chance to win a weekly panda prize pack which includes panda swag and a $50 Metropolis gift card. The installation was first launched in 2008 by the WWF and Grangeon, who handcrafted 1,600 papiermâché pandas— the number of living pandas left in the wild at that time — with recycled materials. The updated exhibit title "1600 Pandas+" refers not only to the 17-per-cent increase in the population of wild giant pandas to over 1,800 in the past decade, but also to increased public awareness of panda conservation, as an always symbolic reminder of wildlife sustainability.

There have been some changes to the Edmonds City Fair after last year’s big celebration, with Canada’s 150th birthday taking place last year, and Burnaby celebrating 125 years. The hoopla went off without a hitch with many new elements to the big day, and the event saw 15,000 people gathering for fun and frivolity, up from the previous year, when about 8,000 attended. One big change this year is the time – the fair will take place one hour later, with the schedule shifting accordingly, according to organizer Lindy McQueen. Now, the fair, which stretches down Edmonds Street between Canada Way and Kingsway, takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. “I think most people have done their thing in the

morning and 11 o’clock is more appropriate for them,” McQueen told the NOW. As last year’s celebrations made the fair even bigger and better, the organizers became aware of some elements they could bring back this year.This year, there will be stilt walkers going up and down the street, as well as a mobile storyteller, who

will tell stories to the kids. “We found these people through the 150/125 celebration last year,” McQueen said. “Because they had them come and we were going, ‘Oh my goodness, look at all this talent that’s out there.’ So we got a few of those people back again this year.” Continued on page 12

Continued from page 11 The IBC Shake Zone will also be back again, she said. “That was such a hit last year,” she added. More restaurants than ever before will be open on Edmonds Street – at least seven, according to McQueen. And this year, the fair is taking over the International Marketplace, which was previously run by the Burnaby Neighbourhood House. “This year there is going to be an International Marketplace that we’re just approaching ethnic groups to see if they want to set up a table or sell their crafts or talk about their heritage and that kind of thing,” McQueen said. The car show is a big draw for the crowds, with up to 100 vehicles on the site on average. There will also be activities and rides for the kids, as well as music and entertainment throughout the fair. “Of course the talent show on the main stage is in full swing again.We’re getting all the talent organized for that,” McQueen said, adding about the fair, “it’s been going on for 15 years and changing every year, improving every year, hopefully.We aim for that.”

There’ll be music and entertainment galore at the Edmonds City Fair this year, from impersonators to rockabilly music to a dog show. Walking along Edmonds Street is a great way to see it all, and some of the entertainment will also be walking through the crowds, according to entertainment organizer Jeff Scheffel. “We’ll be having roaming entertainment wandering up and down Edmonds Street,” Scheffel said, adding there will be puppeteers, stilt walkers, story tellers, and more. In addition to the travelling entertainers, there will be a few stages throughout the site, Scheffel said. “It should be a really fun event.” Near the classic car show, there will be an Elvis and Marilyn cover band doing Elvis tunes and classic rock.They are located near Linden Avenue. Down at Mary Avenue is Rainshadow, playing classic rock. Also down by Mary Avenue, across from the Rainshadow stage, there will be dog shows happening throughout the day. The Rumble Street Boys are playing at Edmonds and Fulton Avenue. The main stage is located at New Vista Place, near the Edmonds fire hall.That is where Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan and other dignitaries will speak at 11:45

Local rockers set to play A twist on the country fair Continued from page 12 band has been around. Thirteen years ago Robert, who is on lead vocals, keyboard and guitar; Ken, on vocals, and electric and acoustic guitars; and Sandy, on vocals and bass, joined with a drummer who had to leave after a year. That`s when Gary, on vocals, drums and percussion, joined them. “We`ve been together ever since,” Robert Stewart told the NOW. Coun. Paul McDonell, who has helped out with the fair since the beginning, got Rainshadow the gig, according to Robert. “We do a lot of community events in Burnaby,” Stewart said, adding the local band plays everything from weddings to fundraisers. “We`re Burnaby-centric.” The band has an eclectic play list, with songs from everyone from Elvis to the Tragically Hip. And when they take a break, they have other acts

filling in: Dave Myles and Luci Baha, and Jessica Kabesh. Rainshadow also holds the annual air guitar contest, where kids can compete to win a guitar that’s been donated by a shop in New Westminster, Neil Douglas Guitars. Five to six kids are chosen to compete, ranging in age from five to 12 years old, and are given painted, wooden guitar cutouts.The judges determine who has the best air guitar performance, and the winner gets an acoustic, six-string guitar. Each of the participants also gets a grab bag. RUMBLE STREET BOYS RETURN The Rumble Street Boys have been playing rockabilly in Burnaby for the past three years. “We’re a pretty tight little group,” Gord Larkin, vocalist and guitarist with the band, told the NOW. “We just enjoy what we do.” The Rumble Street Boys

are a casual band, playing festivals and community events, according to Larkin.Their influences include Carl Perkins, Johnny Burnette, and Johnny Cash, among others. “There are not many bands that play rockabilly,” Larkin said. “Teddy’s really the start of the show.” Teddy Rennie is an acoustic slapstick bass player. Larkin explained it was the slapstick bass that gave rockabilly its classic, distinctive sound, pointing out that Elvis Presley didn’t have a drummer on his early recordings with Sun Records – he had a slapstick bass player. The band is looking forward to playing the fair, Larkin said, adding that the car show is “phenomenal” and it’s wonderful to see people dancing in the street when they play. “We’re happy to be back,” he said. “It’ll be a great day.”

There is nothing more comforting than snuggling a newborn, especially one of the furry variety. And lucky kids attending the Edmond City Fair will get the chance to pet their fair share of baby animals. “The petting zoo comes in from Alder Farms in Langley,” Coun. Paul McDonell, one of the organizers of the fair, told the NOW. The farmer is a vet, and has known McDonell for about 40 years. “He brings in newborns, usually one day old, two days old,” McDonell said, adding he usually brings in rabbits, chickens, goats and pigs. They set up an enclosure for the children to visit the animals, and the children are required to wash their hands both going in and coming out of the enclosure, according to McDonell.

“They only allow so many kids at a time, they show them how to hold them, and they allow the kids to hold them,” he said. “It’s a lot of fun,” he added. “Parents get a kick out of it too, and take a million pictures.” The petting zoo is part of the country feel the organizers initially strove for with the fair, bringing a bit of country culture into the city. “When we first started to do this way back when,

15 years ago, we were trying to think of what to do, trying to plan something in September,” McDonell said. “And we said, ‘let’s have an old-fashioned country fair.” He also mentioned many of the other elements of the fair, including rides, the talent show, the dance troupe, the bands, the fashion show, and the food. “It’s very good,” he said. The petting zoo is near Edmonds Street and Canada Way.

Vintage, modern cars on display at show and shine Janaya Fuller-Evans

editorial@burnabynow.com

Car shows aren’t just about vintage cars and chrome – more recent beauties on wheels can take part in the fun, as well. “We get everything from ‘90s… everyday cars that have been restored,” said Bonnie Game, who organizes the Classic Car Show at the Edmonds City Fair. “I had a ’95 Civic last year.” But they do get cars from other decades, too, she added, mentioning a ’57 Ford and a 1940 Chevy Coupe from last year, as well. The event is popular among car enthusiasts, owners and passersby alike. “We get between 80 and 100 cars average, and if it’s a nice day, we get more,” Game told the NOW. Some of the owners show their cars at both the Edmonds and Hats Off Day car shows, she said. “A lot of the guys know each other,” she said of the car owners. “If they’re

friends they arrange to meet and come together.” The cars stretch from Kingsway about halfway up the fair route along Edmonds Street. “We park the cars from Kingsway up to Mary (Avenue), approximately, nicely spaced so cars don’t get scratched and people can wander between with bug-

gies and strollers and that kind of thing,” Game said. “So it gives people a good way to look at them without being afraid.” There are 11 categories at the show, including restored cars, muscle cars, low riders and more. Owners are competing for trophies as well as cash prizes of $100, $200 and $300.

The Best of Show Award will be chosen by Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan. “He just goes up and down and chooses the one he likes best,” Game said. “We have a three-foot Inukshuk trophy that goes to the Best in Show winner.”

Game has been organizing the car show for seven years and has a classic car of her own – a ’70 red Camaro. “It goes out first and then the other guys follow,” Game said of her car at the car show.

GRAND OPENING

What are the benefits of creating a logo for my business?

Your logo is often the first point of contact for prospective clients or customers. It’s the one thing that they’ll see before knowing anything else about you and your MONICA SHOKAR business. As such, creating a logo that represents you is a core business activity, just as important as leasing office space, recruiting the right people or developing your product or service. A good logo should be seen as an investment. Designing or redesigning a logo often involves: 1) Research 2) Naming and tagline development 3) Brand strategy 4) Design or restyling of existing logos 5) Typography and colour palettes 6) Brand identity guidelines.

Bi-weekly vs Bi-monthly payment plans?

With bi-weekly and bi-monthly (or semi-monthly) payment plans, you divide your normal monthly payment in half. The sole difference is when you make that payment. It’s very HOWARD LOUIE Manager, Mortgage Broker important to note that the prefix “bi” is used differently in each plan. Bi-weekly mortgage payments occur every other week on a specific day of the week. Bi-monthly mortgage payments occur twice monthly on two specific days of each month. To put simply, accelerate bi-weekly works one extra month worth of payments into what you pay over the year. (13 months instead of 12 months). If you make a payment every two weeks—a bi-weekly mortgage— divide 52 by two. This equals 26 payments a year. If you make two payments a month—a bi-monthly mortgage—multiply 12 by two. This equals 24 payments a year.

This $15-million project has been a long time in the making and runs 1.2 kilometres through the east side of Willingdon Avenue, and connects Confederation Park all the way to Brentwood Town Centre. The new park includes a universally accessible paved multi-use pathway, separated from the road with multiple road and laneway crossings over 13 blocks. Lighting, new trees and landscaping, rest stops, bus stop zones, public art installations and a new drinking fountain with a lowered pet watering station were all included in the park upgrades. The new drinking fountain, located at Parker and Willingdon was graciously donated by long time resident of Burnaby and 7 time ‘Best Realtor®’ in Burnaby winner, Jenny Wun. Jenny frequents Willingdon Avenue with her dog and is looking forward to the grand opening of the park! “It’s the perfect place to run, walk, bike or skateboard. It really has something for everyone and will add a lot more to this already desirable neighbourhood. We’re seeing a lot of people moving into the Willingdon and Burnaby Heights area because of the strong sense of community here. This park is an example of that.” This new and vibrant project will celebrate its official Grand Opening with a huge street party along Willingdon from Parker Street down to Midlawn Drive on Saturday, July 21st.

Q A

How do I manage sunburn?

People experiencing sunburn often have skin that is red, swollen, or sore to touch. Have a doctor or health care professional look at the sunburn if you Elaine & Miguel Your Pharmasave Pharmacists notice a rash, itching, or fever, or if blisters appear. Darker skin tones may not appear red; however, people with dark skin can still get a sunburn. There’s no quick fix for sunburn. Like any burn, it takes time to heal. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen), cold water compresses, and cool baths can help with symptoms. Skin hydrating and moisturizing creams may also temporarily relieve pain. Butter, an old sunburn remedy, is inappropriate, as it increases the risk of infection. Soap should be kept clear of burned areas as it’s an irritant. Anaesthetic sprays or creams should also be avoided unless recommended by a doctor.

Q

I was in your store and looking at your banknotes and there were a lot of terms that I did not understand. What are RADARs, replacements and low numbered notes?

A

Low numbered notes are bills with serial numbers below 500. JIM RICHARDSON The most expensive number is 0001 and they sell for around $1,000.00 each. For each number after that the value diminishes until about # 500 where there is no premium above the collector price of a regular note. RADARs are notes where the serial number reads the same forwards as backwards. A solid is also a form of RADAR. Replacement notes occur when a bill is damaged during printing. Banknotes are printed in sheets 500 deep. To keep the counts in stacks consistent with the printings, a replacement note is inserted for every damaged banknote.

Burnaby boys edge NorthVan for provincial A u13 cup crown Dan Olson

dolson@burnabynow.com

The Burnaby District Metro under-13 United found that the route to Richmond was paved in gold – provincial gold, that is. With a committed roster of 16 kids eager to complete the season cup sweep, United shook off a slow start and rallied to edge North Vancouver Selects 2-1 in extra time on Sunday to claim the provincial A Cup crown. In a whirlwind weekend of games – along with the usual traffic circus of daily trips to Richmond – nothing could compare with seeing the players celebrate that final out, head coach Matt Manfredi said. “When the final whistle blew, I couldn’t have been more happy for the players,” said Manfredi. “They deserved the win after (such) a strong finish – I’m very proud of every player. Every game (there) was a different player stepping up to be the spark and star of the game.” Up against the Selects, Burnaby had familiarity and history on their side.The two teams faced off in the Coastal Cup semifinal nine weeks ago, with the locals prevailing 3-0 en route to that cup title. That result added some fuel to North Shore’s fire for the provincial final, where they dominated in the first half. United trailed after just 15 minutes and spent nearly 60 minutes pushing for the equalizer. An adjustment in the second half, by moving centre back and captain Asher Herbert up into the attack, generated the expected result with just under 15 minutes left in regulation time. Herbert drove a corner kick into the box where Nicholas MacKinnon got his head onto it to tie the game. In extra time, Burnaby grabbed the lead in the second minute of the second 10-minute period when Cesar Sherefani beat a defender and drilled a hard shot to the top corner, which would stand up as the winning goal. “It was just an unbelievable shot,” said Manfredi. “I was talking with (North Van) coaches afterwards and they said they had seen enough of us.” Burnaby advanced to the final on the basis of a 2-0 victory over Surrey – the same team they bested in the Coastal Cup final. The United team includes: Goni Bebzuck Marom, Jaden Edwards, Mattias Ferraro, Simon Gunasekera, Asher Herbert,Varun Kothary, Maxim Kroutov, Jeremy Launt, Nicholas MacKinnon, Haruto McKelvie, Alexander Mirisklavos, Lauchlin Moore, Damiano Ravnic, Cesar Sherefani, Kylan Thayalan and Marko Zovko.

Lakers take another overtime hit Extra time has proven to be hard time for the Burnaby Lakers. The Western Lacrosse Association club played its third straight overtime game on Friday and came away again without a win, falling 17-16 at the hands of first-place New West. In a game that unfolded like a three-act opera, Burnaby had its share of the lead

left, to force overtime. But in the extra 10-minute session, the ’Bellies took charge again on goals from Anthony Malcom and Austin Jerhoff 40 seconds apart. Eli McLaughlin cut the deficit to a goal with 2:39 left, but the home team fell one goal shy. Collecting hat tricks in the loss were Coady Adamson, Athan Iannucci and

McLaughlin. Now, time of another kind is getting tight for the fifthplace Lakers. Still, the overtime loss gave them a single point, with them sitting three points back of Nanaimo and the last playoff spot. Burnaby, at 4-4-1-2, holds two games in hand, but need to start converting wins.They host Victoria, 7:30 p.m., on Friday.

March gets national invitation

Burnaby baseball player among 26 vying forWorld Cup roster spot Baseball Canada unveiled its list of 26 athletes invited to participate at the women’s national baseball team selection camp this week, and Burnaby’s Emma March is there. She’ll spend the next week in Montreal working out with the other players with an aim to be among the final 20 selected to represent Canada at the World Baseball Softball Confederation’s Women’s Baseball World Cup in Florida, Aug. 22 to 31. A member of the B.C. Badgers women’s team that played a regular slate of games in the Lower Mainland Baseball League’s over-45 men’s division this past spring in preparation for the national championships, March has been part of national development camps in the past, including the girls baseball development camp held in Cuba last February. Upon getting the invitation for the Cuba camp, the 16-year-old was excited to be taking another step towards realizing her goal, as she told Baseball Canada. “My goal for the 2018 season is to make it onto the women’s national team,” said March. “I’d love to have the opportunity to play with them (at the World Cup) in Florida and I believe that hard work, practice and this

Looking for a new home? Start here.

Detached homes enter buyer’s market, but Burnaby East prices stay high The region’s detached-home pendulum has swung into a buyer’s market, according to the monthly stats report from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV), released July 4. REBGV said that slow sales, combined with an increase in home listings, have pushed Greater Vancouver’s sales-to-listings ratio in the single-family sector down to 11.6 per cent. This is creeping into buyer’s market territory, as a balanced market is between 12 and 20 per cent. Overall, MLS home sales in the region totalled 2,425 in June, a 37.7 per cent drop from June 2017, and a 14.4 per cent fall in just a month since the slight peak in May 2018. PRICE GROWTH STALLING The sales slowdown is putting the brakes on overall price increases, with June’s composite benchmark price (all home types combined across Greater Vancouver) standing 9.5 per cent higher than a year ago, but virtually flat compared with May 2018, at $1,093,600. However, this price change is very different when broken out by home type and

between cities within the REBGV region. Burnaby’s three areas, North, South and East, all saw slightly higher-than-average annual composite price rises. REBGV is now benchmarking the price of a typical detached home across the region at $1,598,200. This is just 0.7 per cent higher than June 2017 and a drop of 0.6 per cent from May 2018. Burnaby East’s single-family home prices bucked the trend, rising 6.4 per cent year over year, but detached homes in both Burnaby North and South are slightly lower than one year ago. With townhouses remaining in limited supply, prices have not declined in this market, although growth seems to be stalling. The benchmark price of an attached home in Greater Vancouver is now pegged at $859,800, which is 15.3 per cent higher than June 2017 and is virtually unchanged from May 2018. Burnaby’s annual townhome price rises were close to that regional average. The benchmark price for a condo across the region is $704,200, which is a 17.2 per cent increase from June 2017 and a 0.4 per cent increase compared with May 2018. Like with townhomes, condo price rises in Burnaby were around that regional figure, with Burnaby North performing best, up an impressive 20.4 per cent year over year.
