NEWS BRIEFS PROTEST TOMORROW

RESEARCHERS RECEIVE FUNDING

Burnaby RCMP officers raised $1,030 at Metropolis at Metrotown mall last Sunday by pedaling stationary bikes for eight hours to promote the Cops for Cancer Tour de Coast, a nine-day, 900-km bike ride across B.C. that kicks off Sept. 21. Money raised by the tour goes to the Canadian Cancer Society’s B.C. and Yukon division, for pediatric cancer research and programs such as its Camp Goodtimes. Info: www.copsforcancerbc.ca.

A protest against Kinder Morgan’s proposed expansion of its Trans Mountain pipeline will take place in North Burnaby on Saturday. Starting at 2 p.m., the protesters, led by Vancouver-based environmental group Wilderness Committee, will march from Hastings Street (where it turns into Inlet Drive), the site of a 2007 oil pipeline rupture, down to the gates of Kinder Morgan’s Westridge Terminal. The protest will coincide with mass civil disobedience planned for Washington, DC to protest the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline.

Six researchers based at Simon Fraser University have received funding awards from the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research. Another three who live in Burnaby and New Westminster but conduct their research at the University of B.C. and the B.C. Cancer Agency also received funding through the foundation’s research scholar and trainee competitions. Robert Britton, Jonathan Choy, Alexander Chapman, Naveed Gulzar, Victor Jensen and Glenys Webster are affiliated with SFU, while Charity Evans and Glen Foster are affiliated with UBC, and Kristoffer Palma is with the BC Cancer Agency. The nine are working on innovative and wide-ranging projects on health issues including borderline personality disorder, multiple sclerosis, HIV, and organ transplantation.

POLICE PEDAL

Central 2.0 readies to open doors By Wanda Chow NEWSLEADER

G

arth Errico was a teacher at Burnaby Central secondary in 2001 when he felt his third-floor classroom start to shake violently. He assumed it was an earthquake—centred in Washington state as it turned out—and awaited an evacuation announcement. When none came, he decided to take his students outside just to be safe. Once there, he realized why the quake wasn’t acknowledged over the loudspeakers. “People on the first floor didn’t feel a thing,” Errico said, still incredulous. Today, Errico is back at Central, this time as its new principal, his first such posting. The plum job includes breaking in a brand new, $50.6-million school, constructed from scratch after the old building next door was deemed too expensive to seismically upgrade. Errico takes some comfort in the structure’s seismic

Energy efficient There’s the energy efficient and green features of the school, Burnaby district’s first to be built from scratch to a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold standard. There’s the geothermal heating system (the necessary wells are underneath the rugby field), motion-sensor lights and skylights and large windows throughout that give the whole building an airy, open feeling, never mind a reduced reliance on electric lights. And there’s a water feature out front, which sends rainwater from the roof through a bed made of the massive boulders dug up onsite, to be soaked into the ground and eventually out to local creeks, sending less water into local storm sewers. But the cool factor comes in the form of souped-up drinking fountains inside. As Errico eagerly points out, in addition to the regular spout

RCMP STING Burnaby RCMP’s latest sting targeting prostitution along Kingsway has resulted in the arrest of 10 “johns” and four female sex trade workers. Those arrested have been charged with communication for the purpose of prostitution. Conducted earlier this month, the effort was the third instance of the ongoing crime reduction project, started in June 2010 by the detachment’s prolific offender suppression team in response to concerns raised by area residents. “The previous two undercover operations were successful and we immediately saw a drastic reduction in calls for service in relation to the sex trade in the area and the illicit activities associated to it,” said Burnaby RCMP Supt. Derren Lench in a press release. The first phase of the project in June 2010 resulted in 20 arrests and charges, while the second, in December, led to 12 charges.

All the classrooms are equipped with special projectors which allow content from computers to be put up on a screen, and a super lab provides the latest setup for science experiments, including two stations with protective covers for experiments involving fumes or flames. Classrooms and offices have been planned with input from staff and teachers, which has led to computer labs arranged ideally for students and computer screens to be supervised. And staff involved in counseling and career prep now have their offices just down the hall from those of administration, since meetings with one group often lead to a need to speak with those in the other. The new school has also been designed with Central’s strengths in mind. A large room, to be covered in protective mats and overlooking the future gym, has been reserved for its renowned wrestling program. That’s next door to an even larger space that will become a weight room and across the hall from what will be the school’s new gym, scheduled for completion in the spring.

Kaizen Rowe, being held by his mother Veronica as he fools around with his brother Cannon, 3, and father Stephen, has become a star. He did tests for turning ďŹ ve in a video done by his dad that will air as part of a CBC documentary.

Burnaby kid a video star By Wanda Chow NEWSLEADER

Five-year-old Kaizen Rowe of Burnaby saw his ďŹ rst movie in a theatre last week. Not particularly remarkable except that he was in it. Kaizen got the star treatment in Toronto for the showing of 1 Day, a CBC documentary incorporating the work of TV camera crews and video submissions from the public into a snapshot of one day in Canada—all the footage was shot on April 30. Kaizen’s dad, Stephen Rowe, won the grand prize for best video submitted by the public for inclusion in the project. The entry depicted Kaizen’s efforts to pass a “test to turn ďŹ ve,â€? a series of challenges he believes he must accomplish before he’s allowed to turn ďŹ ve years old. Stephen said it was an extension of similar “testsâ€? he and his partner Veronica had their son Kaizen undergo starting with the requirement that he stop wearing diapers or training pants before he could turn three. He had been planning to record the latest test on video anyway, he simply did it on April 30 to be eligible for the contest. The list of challenges is

impressive for most almostďŹ ve-year-olds, including reading the lengthy introduction. Stephen said he taught his son to read as a way to help him to concentrate. Then there was rollerblading, riding a bike and skidding the tires, solving math equations, and an attempt at juggling, among many others. “The only thing he’d never done before was shoot a slingshot,â€? said Stephen, adding with a laugh, “It’s the ďŹ rst time he shot a slingshot—and the last time.â€? The biggest challenge was to keep Kaizen motivated during the video shoot, which took place over eight hours in their Forest Grove neighbourhood. To get him to do less desirable tasks such as math and writing out the alphabet, Stephen had to dangle carrots, namely the favourite “testsâ€? of being thrown on a bed and climbing a tree. Kaizen, who turned ďŹ ve a month later and is set to start kindergarten next month, did it all with an impish grin and enthusiasm, as well as priceless facial expressions, particularly during his reading of the introduction when he reveals he’s supposed to also be nice to his three-year-old brother, Cannon.

For Stephen, an artist with video game company Electronic Arts, it was the ďŹ rst time he’d ever edited video. The end result won the grand prize, which included an iPad2, and a trip to Toronto for the premiere where Kaizen revelled in all the attention. “When we asked Canadians to submit videos to our 1 DAY project, I expected scenes of cute kids, funny pets and birthdays—and we got wonderful examples of these,â€? said Sue Dando, executive producer with CBC’s documentary production unit, in a press release. “But I secretly hoped we’d get an unexpected treasure, and that’s what Kaizen and his family gave us: a unique concept, a great story, and a delightful main character. I just wonder when Stephen is going to break it to him that there isn’t really a test to turn ďŹ ve.â€? Ironically, Kaizen won’t ďŹ nd out through watching TV because the family doesn’t have one. But while Stephen is sure Kaizen truly believed the test was real, “I don’t think I could do it for his sixth birthday.â€? 1 Day will air on the CBC News Network on Saturday, Aug. 27, at 4 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 28 at 2 p.m.

Coleman’s challenge Energy Minister Rich Coleman has a new challenge, and that’s something he loves to take on. This time it’s BC Hydro, which has seemingly grown in size and cost with barely a glance from the BC Liberal government, which is charged with overseeing the Crown corporation. Hydro is owned by taxpayers and is the engine of growth for the B.C. economy. In its early days, it powered numerous sawmills, pulp mills and other industrial establishments, and also served a growing export market. However, in the last 25 years, Hydro has done little in the way of building. Most of its work has been in the nature of retrofits and upgrades to existing dams and generating facilities. The B.C. economy has changed dramatically in that time. Large industrial users are no longer the dominant force they once were. Hydro serves a wide range of customers, from large and small businesses to an everincreasing number of residential customers. Under former premier Gordon Campbell, the government initially tried to break up Hydro, by separating the distribution and generating arms. While they have been rejoined, another aspect of government policy was to keep Hydro away from small run-of-river hydro projects, but commit it to buy their output at rates much higher than the electricity it produced itself. Hydro has proposed a 32 per cent rate increase, something that appalled new Premier Christy Clark. On appointing Coleman (the Mr. Fix-it of government) to the energy post, she asked him to review that plan. He appointed a committee of three deputy ministers, and last week they came out with a report that recommends cutting the rate increase in half and reducing Hydro’s work force. Coleman will be looking over the report. He needs to recommend to cabinet a sound energy policy which will keep rates under control and keep low-cost and clean power key to B.C.’s economic development. –Black Press

My own response to the policy is based in my compassion for those who are affected by a climate of anti-gay slurs and bullying. It is also based in my strong belief that the human rights of minorities should be protected. There are many ordinary, even boring, people who are gay (I use gay collectively for LGBTQ+, non-heterosexual folks). They lead normal lives, they contribute to their communities, and some of them raise children who go to your school. Under Canadian law, their relationships are legal and they are protected from discrimination. Policy 5.45 addresses the rights of LGBTQ+ students and staff to be protected from discrimination. I also feel afraid for my gay friends, because I know there are many people who see their relationships are sinful and immoral, who believe homosexuals are diseased and sick, and who say and sometimes do hateful things. I know simple expressions of affection (holding hands, a romantic look, resting a tired head on a shoulder) can expose my friends to danger. I also know attitudes in schools and families often made it even harder to go through the difficult process of learning about their sexual orientation and romantic feelings. At the same time, I sympaTHE 2011

thize with parents who would just rather not think or talk about anything other than heterosexual relationships with their children. Parents may be uncomfortable talking about sex at all. Most of us grew up in a homophobic culture. Some attend a faith-community that tells them the Bible (or other scripture) declares homosexuality to be sinful. Many associate same-sex attractions with promiscuity, same-sex pedophiliac sexual predators and sexually transmitted infections (particularly AIDS). Many don’t know any ordinary people who happen to be gay. Some parents fear they could never accept a gay child, or that they would have to choose between their child and their faith community. These parents could use support to become more comfortable and to learn it need not be seen as a threat. To support our schools and our children, we need to be more compassionate to one another. The public school system will not teach children that all families are heterosexual or that heterosexuality is better than any other orientation. It will also not teach children that your skin colour, ethnicity or religion are better than everyone else’s. Passing Policy 5.45 is only the beginning of what needs to happen. I suspect it will help the schools and our children if we as parents also create opportunities to learn and discuss our attitudes, and to get the information we

need to partner with the schools in raising children respectful of this aspect of diversity. In response to the protests, I formed the Burnaby Parents Gay/ Straight Alliance. I encourage parents and others to join us on Facebook. Families struggling to accept a gay child may also want to contact PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) for information and support. I encourage those of us who support Policy 5.45 to be sensitive to the fears of those who oppose it. Including a diversity of families in the curriculum will not mean sexually explicit instruction for seven-year-olds. Saying that some people share their life with a person of the same sex need not mean describing sexual practices, any more than talking about what husband-andwife families do. For those who oppose the policy, I encourage you to also be compassionate toward those who have a different sexual orientation from you. If you don’t know any normal gay couples, ask around. Gay people don’t want to recruit your kids. They want their own lives to be better, they want to be accepted as people with rights, and they want to improve the lives of gay kids today. Many of them are motivated because they wished someone had been there for them in their youth. Remember that being uncomfortable is not the same as being unsafe. Christine Hitchcock Burnaby

Eventually a new eight-lane track, with artificial turf on the infield, will be built on what is now a temporary parking lot. Partly funded by Burnaby’s city parks and recreation department, it will be oriented north-south to make it eligible for international track competitions. Just off the main band room will be a separate space for Central’s choir program, the drama department will have a new 250-seat theatre, and technical education and art classes will have the latest facilities, all with impressively high ceilings. The new cafeteria kitchen, also used by the district-wide ACE-IT chef-training program and its catering work, looks no different from what one would expect in a high-end commercial kitchen, complete with two huge walk-in fridges and freezers. Top: Burnaby Central’s rugby pitch is planted but won’t be ready for play until next year. Right: Books are ready to be unpacked in the library at the new school.

A ‘grand hall’ Right outside the kitchen is the centrepiece of the school and where it’s hoped a sense of community will be nurtured. Errico refers to it as the “student common area” but it could also be dubbed the “grand hall.” The massive space flanked by large but simple columns is where students will eat their lunches, attend assemblies and just hang out. The large garage-style doors, reminiscent of those in fire halls, will open up to a plaza and stairs that drop down toward the track and field, providing a comfortable vantage point for spectators, Errico said. When he sees the space, “I think about the smiles on students’ faces because in this area they’ll enjoy themselves in so many ways,” he said. Throughout there will be plenty of space for students to socialize—school benches will be installed and some rows of half-height lockers will naturally become hangout spaces thanks to counters built on top. Unlike a brand-new school, Central already has an identity

and a sense of community, he noted, but the new building will also offer a chance to create something new. The old school next door is set for demolition to make way for the new gym and track (the old gym will be retained until the new one is completed). Errico laughed that the school’s previous home was also considered state of the art when it opened in 1961. “It makes me wonder in 50 years what we’ll think of this place?” While the school will accommodate 1,300 students to start, it has been designed to be easily expandable to take 1,500—a rooftop space has been provided where six classrooms can be added in the future.

They’re still working out the kinks before teachers arrive next week and students the week after that. For example, when crews arrived to install a bookcase that had been planned for a wall in the library, they found a counter already built in. “It’s exciting and it’s challenging,” Errico said. “There’s a lot of little things in the construction process [to deal with].” But after the tools, ladders, rolls of linoleum, dust and evidence of construction are removed, Errico can’t wait to see the students’ reaction upon their return in September. “It’s bright, it’s uplifting, it’s a very friendly space.” wchow@burnabynewsleader.com

Another BC Liberal leaving Premier Clark’s cabinet BLACK PRESS

BLACK

Port Moody-Coquitlam MLA Iain Black is resigning his seat to take a new job as CEO of the Vancouver Board of Trade. Premier Christy Clark said she is “delighted and saddened” to see

PADS up for national award for non-profits By Nicole Clark

the man who succeeded her as Port Moody-area MLA in 2005 leave politics. After serving in several ministries in former premier Gordon Campbell’s cabinet, Black was dropped from a slimmed-down cabinet lineup by Clark this spring and named parliamentary secretary for pubic transportation. Clark and Black both rejected

suggestions that pressure from the premier’s office to prepare for the next election had anything to do with Black’s decision. Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner resigned as attorney-general last week, citing the need to declare his candidacy and appoint election officials. Black said he wasn’t looking for a

career change, and the board of trade approached him. “And it took some convincing to tear me away from a job and a passion that I’ve had since I was a very young boy,” he said. Clark said she wasn’t expecting any further resignations, and it wasn’t related to election speculation.

Burnaby-based Pacific Assistance Dogs Society (PADS) has been named as a finalist for the Donner Awards and could win up to $30,000 in prize money. “This is the premier non-profit awards in Canada and we are so amazed and humbled to be named as a finalist,” said executive director Kevin Pidwerbeski. PADS is one of 19 organizations across Canada to be named as a finalist in the Donner Canadian Foundation Awards for excellence in the delivery of social services. The awards recognize the best managed non-profit social service organizations and offer a total of $60,000 in prize money. PADS is a finalist in the category of “Services for People with Disabilities” and is up against Community Living Campbellford/Brighton (Nfld.) and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. This year, 591 non-profit social service agencies from across Canada applied for the awards. The top organization in each of the seven categories will receive $5,000, while the $20,000 William H. Donner Award for Excellence will be presented to the highest performer overall. Additionally, the $5,000 Peter F. Drucker Award for Non-Profit Management will be given to a non-profit organization with a consistent record of excellence in the management and delivery of community services. PADS trains and places dogs with people who are hearing impaired or who have physical disabilities. Last year they made 14 placements and currently have 75 to 80 dogs working in Western Canada. The current wait-list to be placed with a dog is three to four years. At the recommendation of the Donner Foundation awards committee, PADS made significant changes to their organization the past year. Pidwerbeski believes that these changes, which include cutting administration costs and engaging more volunteers, lead to this year’s nomination. “The Donner has really helped us, it’s been phenomenal. We refocused the whole organization.” Pidwerbeski says PADS spends 18 cents on every dollar on administration costs, which he says is one of the lowest amounts in Canada. “When you donate with us, the money stays here. You can come and see us at the offices and see what your money is doing.” If PADS won the Donner Foundation award, Pidwerbeski says 100 per cent of the money would go toward after care of clients, which can include anything from visiting clients and PADS dogs, or re-training the dog to fit the needs of the client. “We don’t deal with a specific disease, we have clients who are quadriplegics, paraplegic, clients with cystic fibrosis, and many other disease, so we need to customize each dog to that person,” he said. “That’s what makes us unique over any other organization.” The awards, administered by the Fraser Institute on behalf of the Donner Canadian Foundation, will be presented in November at a celebration in Toronto.

taking attendance is an essential service, but tried to refuse to send attendance information to the school office, even though this may involve no more effort than pushing the send button on a computer. The LRB refused the request for a second time. The board decided that both monitoring attendance and sending in the results represent a safety issue, and ruled that teachers can’t refuse it and force a management person to collect the data.

VICTORIA – A tangle of technical issues is being sorted through by the B.C. Labour Relations Board this week as public school teachers and their employers prepare for another disputed school year. The B.C. Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) applied to the labour board for a ruling expected by Friday on the scope of provincewide bargaining issues. The employer says the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) has failed to present a full set of proposals at the provincial table. “The BCTF continues to attempt to negotiate provincial matters and matters that may not be bargained at this time (including class size, class composition and staffing ratios) at local tables,” BCPSEA said in a bargaining bulletin. In June, teachers voted 90 per cent in favour of a strike mandate. In July, BCTF negotiators tabled demands including wage parity with other provinces, doubled bereavement leave to provide 10 days paid

leave on the death of a friend or relative, increased preparation time and a retirement bonus that would give departing teachers an extra five per cent payout for each year worked. BCPSEA says the pay demand would mean a 21 per cent raise for some teachers to match Alberta rates. It calculates that the entire package of demands would cost an extra $2.2 billion. The B.C. government has settled contracts with a majority its unionized staff this year, working within a “net zero” budget mandate. Education Minister George Abbott has repeatedly indicated that the same mandate applies to teacher talks, with any extra costs offset by savings in other contract areas. BCTF president Susan Lambert says without a negotiated settlement by the time school begins Sept. 6, teachers will start phase one of strike action by refusing all non-essential duties. The relationship between the two sides is reflected in an LRB arbitration handed down Aug. 5. The BCTF accepts that

B.C. hires more sheriffs to avert trial delays By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

The province is hiring and training 36

new auxiliary sheriffs in a move expected to help avoid further trial delays from insufďŹ cient courtroom

security. It represents a net increase of 30 sheriffs over and above the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s com-

mitment in June to restore the hours of auxiliary sheriffs that had been cut in May. This springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reduc-

tions, equivalent to the loss of 34 full-time positions, and coupled with a shift to a system of roving on-call sher-

iffs, prompted several judges to raise safety and security concerns and postpone trials. Acting AttorneyGeneral Shirley Bond said the new recruits should be on the job by December and will â&#x20AC;&#x153;help minimize the risk of court delays resulting from staff shortages going forward.â&#x20AC;? Sheriffsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; union spokesman Dean Purdy applauded the increase. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a move in the right direction,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will help to ease the pain in the court system.â&#x20AC;? But Purdy estimated B.C. will still remain 70 to 100 sheriffs short

of the number it had roughly three years ago, before their ranks were reduced through attrition. Provincial ofďŹ cials contend the gap will be less than half as big as the union claims. Purdy said sheriffs wages top out at $54,000 a year and many leave for higher-paying law enforcement jobs with the RCMP or Transit Police. Fifteen of the new recruits will serve in the Lower Mainland. Bond said the government plans to recruit a second group of new sheriffs starting in January.

Cool summer keeps pollution, fires down Dearth of 30-degree days means no air quality alerts By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

A cooler than normal summer has put a damper on holiday fun but it’s also left many Lower Mainland residents breathing easier. No air quality warnings have been issued this year, due to an absence of hot weather in the Lower Mainland and an unusually low number of forest fires in the B.C. Interior. By this time last year, two air quality advisories had been issued spanning a total of six days. The hottest weather so far was last weekend – 30.6 degrees in Abbotsford Saturday and 27.4 in Vancouver. But that was the first time Abbotsford topped 30 so far in 2011, according to Environment Canada meteorologist David Jones, adding there would usually be about seven 30-plus days by now. “That’s quite unusual,” he said. “It’s been a long cold spring, a slow start to summer and a total absence of hot spells.” The cooler weather has been widespread throughout B.C., he said, adding that’s helped keep forest fires down and helped with air quality in Metro Vancouver. “You need heat waves and big ridges of unchanging stagnant air to get air quality issues,” Jones said. “And you need long stretches of hot dry air to create fire risk. We just haven’t had either of those this year.” Metro Vancouver air quality planner Julie Saxton said ozone concentrations tend to build when it’s hot and there’s lots of sunshine. Last year’s advisories were driven mainly by fine particulate from wildfire smoke, she added. “We’ve been very lucky this summer that we haven’t had poor air quality affecting us,” she said, but added a hot spell

could still develop between now and midSeptember. It’s the slowest year in at least the last 10 for wildfires, according to B.C.’s fire information centre. So far 469 fires have burned 11,782 hectares. An average

year sees B.C. fight nearly 2,000 fires and lose almost 100,000 hectares. As a result, B.C. has sent nearly 2,000 firefighters out of province this year to assist with fires in Ontario, Alberta and Alaska.

Canada’s top young field lacrosse players will be at the Burnaby Lake Sports Complex Sept. 2-4 for the national championships. Teams from seven provinces in two age divisions, U-16 and U-19, will play for the Alumni Cup and First Nations Trophy. The finals will be played on Sept. 4, beginning at 12:30 p.m.

The Langley Thunder blitzed the New Westminster Salmonbellies with the first four goals, then hung on to win game four of their Western Lacrosse Association final, 8-6. Each team has won its home games going into last night’s fifth game at Queen’s Park Arena. Andrew Potter, Patrick Saunders, Alex Turner and Athan Ianucci put the Thunder in control Tuesday before Jordan McBride was able to get New West on the scoreboard almost 16 minutes into the game. Martin Cummings cut the Langley advantage in half with a shorthanded goal just before the end of the first period as Wade Dewolff sat out a penalty for high sticking. The momentum seemed to be swinging the Salmonbellies’ way in the second period after Cliff Smith got them to within a goal 5:12 in. But despite peppering the Langley net with 19 shots, they couldn’t beat keeper Brodie MacDonald again. The league’s rookie of the year was full measure for his first star honours. Former Burnaby Jr. Laker Jamie Lincoln restored the Thunder’s two-

goal lead late in the period, converting a play by Turner and Kyle Belton, former Jr. Salmonbellies. Brandon Goodwin got New Westminster back to within a goal when he was able to take advantage of a boarding major that had been assessed to Belton. But later on the same shorthanded situation, the Iannucci, a former ’Bellie, scored his second goal of the game to put the Thunder back up by a pair. Twice more the teams traded goals in the period, with Rob Van Beek icing it with an unassisted goal late in the frame. Again, New West held a huge advantage in play, outshooting the Thunder 19-9 in the third, and 49-32 in the game. Kevin Crowley’s four assists earned the Salmonbellies’ forward the game’s third star. The Thunder’s win ensures the Langley Events Centre will host another game, Saturday night at 7:45 p.m. If a seventh game is needed, it will be played Monday at Queen’s Park Arena. The winner of the series will host the Mann Cup.
