In an unusual move, Burnaby city hall has taken out newspaper ads to make it clear that Canada Safeway’s concept plan for its former distribution centre property does not conform with the community plan and
has not received any approvals to go ahead. In fact, city ofﬁcials never even saw the concept plan until after it was made public by Safeway, said Burnaby’s director of planning and building, Basil Luksun. The 42-acre property in South Burnaby, bounded by 11th and

14th avenues and 15th and 18th streets, near the New Westminster border, was formally offered for sale on June 1. The property is currently zoned industrial and operated as Safeway’s distribution centre until last fall. As reported in the NewsLeader last month, the land is designated as multifamily residential in Burnaby’s Ofﬁcial Community Plan. At the time, Safeway released a concept plan, showing several highrises, to give purchasers an idea of the property’s residential development potential. Trevor Lee, senior real estate manager for Canada Safeway, said then that Burnaby city hall is aware of the company’s plans and it would be the purchaser’s responsibility to rezone the property before development. While the site is designated for future multi-family residential use, it’s actually for low-density residential—townhouses and buildings of up to four storeys, said Luksun. There are existing highrises in the neighbourhood, but those were built on sites designated in the community plan for such use, he said. The concept plan has led to numerous calls to city hall from area residents and prospective developers. What could be built there would affect the property’s value. Safeway has not listed the land with any price attached. SEE SAFEWAY ON A8

THREE WOMEN CONTESTING FOR MISS BC 2011
Trafﬁc control boom has its perils By Grant Granger NEWSLEADER
on Lowe has a relative in Edmonton who, after ﬁnding out he trains trafﬁc control persons (TCPs), said to him, “I don’t know why you need them. You stick a shovel in the ground, the driver sees it and goes around it. Are people blind?” Lowe, the owner of DL Safety Consulting in Burnaby, can only shake his head at his relative’s outdated notion, although it was the prevailing attitude until about a decade ago. In the last few years, it’s become apparent the Lower Mainland now has two seasons, rainy and road construction. It’s almost impossible, even taking a trip to the corner store, to avoid delay caused by construction. Worksites range from mega-projects like the Highway 1/Port Mann Bridge rebuild, to ﬁlling a pothole or trimming trees. “A few years ago there was not much ﬂagging at all,” says Lowe. In 2003, it became mandatory for TCPs to undertake a two-day certiﬁcation course, and in recent years their numbers have grown dramatically. More than 3,600 were trained in 2008, and by 2010 there were 6,000. Last month alone there were 900 to be certiﬁed. “That’s been the largest
number for one month since we started,” says Starlett Bluhm, TCP program coordinator for the New Westminster-based B.C. Construction Safety Alliance (BCCSA). “There’s more construction on the road and more ﬂaggers out there.”
Injury reports up With so many people in the way of trafﬁc, there has been a corresponding boom in the number of injuries— and even fatalities—to ﬂagpersons. In 2000, there were just seven trafﬁc control claims processed by WorkSafeBC. From 2008 to 2010, it accepted 44 claims from TCPs struck by vehicles or mobile equipment, two of them fatalities. On the Lougheed Highway in Mission last July, a ﬂagger was hit and dragged underneath a Jeep about 50 metres. Another TCP was struck by a vehicle and killed at a job site in Fort Langley in 2008. “It just turns your stomach,” says Lowe about those accidents. “Trafﬁc control is a dangerous issue,” adds Bluhm. “Flaggers are on the road protecting trafﬁc, the workers behind them, as well as their safety.” Pay for the position ranges from minimum wage to $21 an hour, depending on skill level, experience and the location. “There should be a danger pay rate,” admits Lowe.

Breanna Basterash, a ﬂagger for D.L. Safety Consulting, demonstrates how she unloads trafﬁc pylons when setting up a lane closure.
The industry is so worried about the hazards it has tried to get the public to pay attention in order to reduce the peril with organizations like the BCCSA, WorkSafeBC and the BCAA sponsoring the Slow Down and Cone Zone campaigns. BCCSA recently set up a trafﬁc control advisory committee, which met for the ﬁrst time last week, to look at various ways to improve the TCP training.
How to stay in control The current certiﬁcation course Lowe and many others teach provides techniques to make it safer for the public and the TCPs. “The main thing is the ﬂagger must provide them-
selves an escape route,” says Lowe, who charges $252 for the course. To ﬁgure one out, though, can be a challenge because every site is different. A game plan must to be developed to determine where to set up the cones, where to stand, where to direct trafﬁc, and much more. For some of the bigger projects, an engineer has to sign off on the trafﬁc plan before work can begin. Making eye contact with drivers is important, says Lowe. If the driver smiles, then smile back. But if they yell, remain calm. “If you yell back you just accelerate the situation. You just have to say sorry you
feel that way,” says Lowe. Out on the road, Lowe has noticed a distinctive difference in drivers in many areas of the Lower Mainland. Burnaby is much slower paced. “It has streets like Kingsway where you have to go from light to light to light.” Drivers in Richmond, he claims, have trouble seeing past their windshield. In North Vancouver, they’re very friendly. Vancouver folks easily develop road rage. And those in Surrey just like to drive fast. The drivers, he says, have to be aware the TCPs must follow the rules of the road. Even when it appears to make sense to help out drivers they may not be able to. For example, Lowe recalls one time a TCP was holding up trafﬁc on West Fourth Avenue in Vancouver for a crane with a suspended load. To keep the trafﬁc somewhat ﬂowing, the ﬂagger allowed vehicles to detour via the next residential street, which was against the rules and the company got dinged $1,800 by the City of Vancouver. With such a high demand, Lowe isn’t wanting for work, either as a trainer or as a supplier of TCPs. “I’m not calling them, they’re calling me,” says Lowe, whose company has gone from no employees to 44 in three years. “It really took off.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Byrne Creek to be ﬁrst community secondary A Burnaby first, pilot project will start in September By Wanda Chow NEWSLEADER
Kids who need the sort of help community schools provide don’t stop needing it once they get to high school. That’s the idea behind a new pilot project approved by Burnaby school board recently to establish the city’s ﬁrst community secondary school. The one-year pilot will start in September at Byrne Creek secondary where two of its feeder schools, Edmonds and Stride Avenue, are already community schools. Funded jointly with Burnaby city hall, such schools are often open outside of school hours and serve as a place where students and their families can connect with resources and programs. “Just because kids leave Grade 7 doesn’t mean all of a sudden they don’t need extra support,” said Burnaby school board chair Larry Hayes. “The thought was if we’re going to look at a secondary school, Byrne Creek certainly made the most sense as a com-

Metrotower 3 still years away senior’s celebrate day bu
Originally scheduled for completion this summer, construction on hold while still in pre-leasing stage By Wanda Chow NEWSLEADER
Metrotower III will remain a dormant construction site for the time being, despite original estimates that the Burnaby ofﬁce tower would be ready for occupation by this summer. The 29-storey project, which will add almost 400,000 square feet of AAA ofﬁce space to the Metrotown area when it’s built, is still in the pre-leasing stage, said Gordon Wylie, director of development for Ivanhoe Cambridge, the project’s owner. He said when construction started in August 2008, the plan was to build the underground parkade ﬁrst and if there was sufﬁcient pre-leasing committed, then continue with the rest of the tower. “We let out a contract for the parkade and we held back the rest of the tower. That was a prudent move to make in any market but it certainly was one which proved to be a good strategy
Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan (centre) with ofﬁcials from Ivanhoe Cambridge launched construction on Metrotower III ofﬁce tower in November 2008.
opposite the ﬁnancial crisis that happened shortly after.” With the global ﬁnancial crisis, many leasing decisions were not being made or delayed in the fall of 2008 and through most of 2009, Wylie said. “The market wasn’t there to justify the building at that time. In the wake of the ﬁnancial crisis there was space let back on the Burnaby market, conditions changed quite signiﬁcantly.” Right now, the company continues to seek pre-leasing deals with larger tenants, he said, noting that Metrotower I was largely taken up by Rogers-Cantel as an anchor tenant when construction on that tower went ahead.
“When we hit a pre-leasing threshold that we feel we can move forward on, we have the ﬁnancial capability and the physical capability to do the building quite quickly. We’re just trying to get the pre-lease deals done.” The ofﬁce leasing market has improved “quite a bit” from a few years ago, he said, noting the Metrotower complex is quite a high-end product for Burnaby. “We still don’t have a lot of vacancy in towers one and two. But when you’re competing for a new tower you’re competing against all your other potentials in the marketplace.” In an interview to publicize the $170-million building’s
ofﬁcial groundbreaking ceremony in November 2008, Wylie said at the time that there was a 2.5 per cent vacancy rate in Burnaby for AAA ofﬁce space, and an overall ofﬁce vacancy rate of eight per cent. The two existing Metrotown towers, also AAA, were fully leased. That demand made the project viable, regardless of the economic climate at the time, he said. The contractors started digging a hole for the parkade in August that year, and the global economy tanked in the third week of September. “By delivering the parkade, now we’ve sped up our timeline for delivering the rest of the tower. For us to have stopped at that point made no sense.” Construction costs will also be cheaper now than if work had continued beyond the parkade level, due to material, commodity and labour costs being quite high back then, Wylie said. “We will see some savings and that will translate to lower lease rates so it’s beneﬁcial to tenants.” If construction were to recommence today, it would be completed by 2014, he said, which makes the current estimated completion date sometime beyond that.

Canada’s ﬂag beloved It’s hard to believe Canada’s ﬂag, the Maple Leaf, was the subject of contentious and divisive debate before it was adopted in 1965 to replace the venerable Red Ensign. It has now become one of our most beloved symbols, and it’s one of the most recognized ﬂags in the world. In fact, travelers still abide by the rule of thumb that when venturing to difﬁcult lands, a Canadian ﬂag sewn onto a lapel or backpack will enhance their safety. But it almost didn’t happen. When Prime Minister Lester Pearson decided it was time for Canada to have its own distinct ﬂag, the leader of the opposition Conservatives, John Diefenbaker, would have none of it. Despite clinging to a slim minority government, Pearson persisted. A committee was formed, designs commissioned then discussed, and the rest is history. But in an of itself a ﬂag is just a graphic design. It’s how a country’s citizens see themselves, and how they carry themselves in the world that imparts a ﬂag with meaning. In that regard, George F.G. Stanley’s design, an 11-point red maple leaf on a ﬁeld of white bracketed by two red bars, has been an overwhelming success. Today, when the Maple Leaf ﬂutters in the breeze, we think of an expansive land of disparate natural beauty, populated by welcoming, tolerant, hard-working and fairminded people. We feel pride as a place of peace. We value and celebrate the various cultures that have found their way here. We revel in our role as an international underdog, in diplomatic and athletic pursuits. We’re humble to a fault. As a statesman and diplomat, Pearson likely already knew all this. That’s why he felt conﬁdent enough to press on, risking his government. Canada already had an identity; we just needed our own symbol to identify with.

He said when the company announced the closure of the distribution centre nine months ago, city hall did offer to work with it to develop a mutually-agreeable concept they could use in marketing materials and give potential purchasers some certainty of what could be built there. “But they chose not to do that.” The community plan, adopted in 1994,
“There is a lot of confusion out there so council just wanted to make it clear that the concept put forward by Safeway has no status and it does not conform to the adopted plan,” Luksun said. “They only shared information with us after they publicly released the information, so we had no prior knowledge of what they were putting forward.”

is part of the Edmonds Town Centre Plan. Any changes to it would require a public process and review of the neighbourhood involving the community and council, something that could take up to two years. “So it’s not a quick process.” And that’s before any rezoning could take place. Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan can’t recall ever having to go to such measures to clarify such a situation but said it was prompted by Safeway going public with its plan. That caused great concern among area residents. The concept plan “made it look like the city was doing something behind their back,” he said. Council felt obliged to clarify to residents and the development community that city hall had nothing to do with the proposal. “It was wholly fabricated out of the dreams of Safeway as to the highest best use they could make of their land, it had noth-

ing to do with reality. We had to make that clear.” Corrigan said he was “very, very surprised” at Safeway’s approach. “It’s not good for relationships, certainly. And I would have expected a much more professional attitude from Safeway in [their dealings with the city].” He said the company’s mistake would not lead to council being prejudiced against a future developer of the site in any applications for rezoning or other changes. But it could create a negative reaction from the public towards any future proposal. The community plan could be amended to allow for higher density at the site. But Corrigan stressed, “The community plan does not guarantee that somebody gets a change in zoning on their land. It’s simply a long-range plan and if in fact we decided that we wanted to protect the industrial land ... then we might refuse any rezoning of the property.” City hall has ﬁelded numerous calls from developers who were confused by the concept plan. “It really muddies the waters for potential purchasers of the property which in a property of that size, with that potential, doesn’t seem to me to be the best way to get out there to the development community,” Corrigan said. A Safeway representative was unavailable for an interview. But in a statement released Monday, the company’s media relations manager, Betty Kellsey, said, “Safeway has been clear in its marketing materials and in conversations with all stakeholders that the vision presented is conceptual and the purchaser or developer will have to work directly with the City of Burnaby on the ﬁnal development plan. “We believe there is an incredible opportunity for a developer to transform this former industrial site into a beautiful residential community that will be consistent with the surrounding communities in the Edmonds area.” email@example.com

Burnaby boy goes ﬁrst overall in NHL draft By Grant Granger NEWSLEADER
Burnaby’s Ryan Nugent-Hopkins became the ﬁrst player from British Columbia taken ﬁrst overall in the NHL entry draft when he was picked by the Edmonton Oilers in St. Paul, Minn., on Friday. “It’s amazing,” Nugent-Hopkins told TSN about being the top pick. “It’s a dream come true, to be honest. I watched Edmonton the past couple of years and it’s just amazing getting to play with them.” Previously the B.C. player to get picked the earliest was another Burnaby boy, Ryan Walter, who was selected second overall by the Washington Capitals in 1978. A year earlier, the Colorado Rockies took former New Westminster Bruins defenceman Barry Beck, who grew up in Vancouver, second overall. New Westminster
native, and former Burnaby Express star, Kyle Turris was taken third by the Phoenix Coyotes in 2007. After NugentHopkins heard Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini announce his name, he gave his father Roger Hopkins, his brother Adam, and mother Debbie Nugent a hug. As he made his way to the podium to put on an Oiler jersey for the ﬁrst time, Nugent clasped her hands and then dabbed her teary eyes with a tissue. The debate prior to the draft was whether Edmonton would take the slick play-making centre who toiled the last two years for the Red Deer Rebels in the Western Hockey League after playing minor hockey at the Burnaby Winter Club or choose Adam Larsson , a big defenceman from Sweden. Ontario forwards Gabriel Landeskog and Jonathan Huberdeau were also

highly touted. “They’re all great hockey players but I think Ryan possesses a level of skill and vision that we really hadn’t seen for a long time,” Tambellini told TSN. “I asked our scouts at the end of the day in their mind what was special and the hockey world ranked him No. 1 for a reason. He’s a
special young man.” The biggest knock against NugentHopkins was his slight size. At a little over six feet, he has gained about 10 pounds from his WHL playing weight of 164 since the season ended. It’s made observers wonder if he will return to Red Deer for another year or play in the NHL. “There’s no pressure for him to have to play in the NHL next year. I know he wants to and he will play there eventually,” said Tambellini. The dream pairing Oiler fans have been drooling about is Nugent-Hopkins setting up last year’s ﬁrst overall pick Taylor
Hall for many years to come. “That would be awesome,” said NugentHopkins. Hall was one of the Edmonton representatives on the podium when Nugent-Hopkins’ name was announced. “It’s great to see. He’s going to be a fun player to play with,” said Hall on TSN. “I know he’s a great passer and a great puck mover. That’s not taking anything away from his other parts of his game, but that’s what he does best. And for a player like me who likes to get in the open and get a nice pass he’ll be fun to play with.” NEWSLEADER FILE

Foreign buyers a tiny fraction of housing market real estate market but tend to buy much more expensive homes. Those are the latest conclusions of researchers at Urban Futures who found just 0.4 per cent of all homes sold in the region in 2010 were bought by owners with a foreign mailing address.

The offering is billed as a way to choose a greener more sustainable way to heat homes and take action on climate change. “It’s an innovative approach that allows their customers to take action on climate change in a simple and cost-effective way,” said James Tansey, CEO of Offsetters, a carbon management ﬁrm that has endorsed the offering as carbon-neutral. FortisBC (formerly Terasen Gas) estimates the program will save 5,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases in the ﬁrst year, equal to taking 1,000 cars off the road each year.

Just as households can opt to pay more for green electricity, FortisBC is now offering to charge its customers more to support renewable natural gas projects and cut their carbon footprint. Those who sign on will pay about $4 extra per month to have 10 per cent of their home’s natural gas originating from biogas sources, which avoids the extraction of fossil fuel gas. The methane is initially being captured at a landﬁll in Salmon Arm and generated from cattle manure at Catalyst Power Inc.’s new anaerobic digester in Abbotsford. It’s upgraded to pipeline quality

basis. “There’s limited supply of biogas for renewable natural gas,” FortisBC spokesman Marcus Wong said, adding it could be opened up to more customers or larger proportions of biogas use as supplies increase. There’s no locked-in contract – customers can opt out at any time at no cost. Subscribers pay 10 per cent less in carbon tax on their gas bills, because B.C.’s carbon tax applies on natural gas but not on carbonneutral sources. It’s the ﬁrst program of its kind in North America. Biogas so far costs more to produce than regular natural gas. FortisBC is expected to sign an agreement to buy biogas from Metro Vancouver’s Lulu Island sewage treatment plant at $13.40 per gigajoule – nearly triple the current market price of regular natural gas.

detached houses. A previous report this spring by Landcor Data Corp. had also linked a large proportion of luxury home sales in recent years to buyers from mainland China. Landcor found that activity is concentrated in a few areas, particularly Vancouver’s west side, the North Shore, Richmond and South Surrey. Berlin said Metro Vancouver residents shouldn’t be spooked by the average real estate prices in the region, which are increasingly deceptive as they are skewed by the most expensive properties on the market. The region’s average sale price for a detached home hit $810,000 in 2010. But if you exclude the priciest 20 per cent of homes that went for as much as $17.5 million, Berlin notes, the average price for the rest of the market is $591,000.

he said. Urban Futures found a total of 195 sales out of 55,512 in the Lower Mainland last year were to foreign investors. That doesn’t count foreign buyers who use a local lawyer or building manager to receive mail or immigrants who are buying and perhaps living here part-time. But even doubling or tripling the number of foreign investor sales to account for those cases still leaves insigniﬁcant numbers, he said. Foreign buyers have a much greater appetite for more expensive homes than local buyers, according to Berlin’s calculations. The foreign investors who bought in 2010 paid on average twice as much for a condo as other buyers. They paid 60 per cent more on average for
“We’re dealing with pretty small numbers here,” Urban Futures economist Ryan Berlin said, adding the proportion rises to 0.7 per cent when just condos and apartments are considered. Realtors have anecdotally reported an inﬂux of foreign buyers from mainland China and there’s been growing debate on whether the phenomenon is driving housing prices up and hurting home affordability. Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney recently said an inﬂux of Asian wealth is leading to some “extreme” valuations in Vancouver’s housing market. Berlin simply doesn’t see the evidence. “There’s very little hard data out there that shows foreign investors are indeed having a signiﬁcant impact on our real estate markets,”

CANADADAY CANADA DAY
&DQDGD'D\-XO\ DPÂ˛SP ,WÂˇVD3DUW\
Moments in Canadaâ€™s history Canada has been its own dominion since 1867. Since that time, Canada has witnessed its fair share of memorable moments and remarkable history. Some of the more memorable moments in Canadian history include: â€˘ July 1, 1867. The day it all began, July 1 is celebrated as Canada Day throughout the country because on this day 144 years ago Britainâ€™s North American colonies ofďŹ cially united as the Dominion of Canada. â€˘ 1873: The North-West Mounted Police are formed. Canadians and many others across the globe commonly refer to these ofďŹ cials as â€œMounties.â€? â€˘ 1875: Jennie Kidd Trout becomes the ďŹ rst licenced female physician in Canada. â€˘ 1885: The North-West Rebellion, an ultimately unsuccessful uprising by the Metis people of Saskatchewan against the Dominion of Canada, occurs. â€˘ 1898: The Klondike Gold Rush, a frenzied gold rush immigration in the Yukon district of Canada, hits full swing. â€˘ 1900: Reginald Fessenden, who was born in Canada, makes what might have been the ďŹ rst wireless radio broadcast. â€˘ 1903: Canada loses the Alaska boundary dispute to the United States.

B.C. Auditor General wants BC Rail trial costs By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS
VICTORIA – B.C. AuditorGeneral John Doyle has applied to B.C. Supreme Court for details of the legal defence costs for Dave Basi and Bob Virk, convicted of breach of trust last fall for their role in the sale of BC Rail operations. In a petition ﬁled Tuesday, a lawyer for the auditor-general’s ofﬁce said the information is needed so Doyle can sign off on the province’s accounts for the ﬁscal year. The province’s lawyer offered to comply, but lawyers for Basi and Virk cited lawyer-client privilege and refused. Attorney General Barry Penner said the government agreed to waive its conﬁdentiality for the audit, and won’t oppose Doyle’s court application for the information. In May, Penner appointed University of B.C. president Stephen Toope to review the
pay Basi and Virk’s legal bills, made by the deputy ﬁnance minister and deputy attorney general. They determined that the majority of costs from years of pre-trial arguments would never be recovered from Basi and Virk, and costs to taxpayers would continue to mount without the guilty pleas. In legislature debate in February, interim NDP leader Dawn Black noted that the $6 million legal payment was the same amount cut from the Crown prosecutor budget this year. “The government only covers defence costs in the event of an acquittal, but two Liberal insiders were given a last-minute sweetheart deal that cut short the BC Rail corruption trial,” Black said. B.C. Liberal house leader Rich Coleman replied that the accused ﬁled a statement of fact with their guilty pleas, stating that they acted alone.
province’s policy of covering legal fees for public servants who are sued or charged in connection with their duties. The B.C. government’s decision to pay an estimated $6 million in defence costs has been a lightning rod for critics. The policy was for the government to pay for legal defence of employees, and recover those costs if the employee is found guilty. Ministerial assistants in the B.C. Liberal government while BC Rail operations were up for sale in 2002-03, Basi and Virk pleaded guilty in October 2010 to disclosing conﬁdential bidding information and accepting beneﬁts from a competing bidder. Their guilty pleas put an abrupt end to an eight-year investigation and court case that began with a police raid on the B.C. legislature. Cabinet members have insisted there was no political interference in the decision to

Oh, Canada Beloved ﬂag and symbol of our country had a rough start that almost paralyzed Parliament

Canada Day is on Friday. And front and centre at all the celebrations, picnics and barbecues will be the Canadian ﬂag, the red and white Maple Leaf. It will be ﬂuttering from ﬂagpoles, jabbed into hats and hairdos, hanging from trees, painted on cheeks and maybe even tattooed on biceps. The Maple Leaf was adopted as Canada’s national ﬂag in 1965, after months of intense and occasionally acrimonious debate that almost stalemated Parliament. The champion for a new national ﬂag was Prime Minister Lester Pearson; when he was working to resolve the Suez Crisis in Egypt in 1956, the Egyptian government had objected to his proposal for Canadian troops to act as peacekeepers because Canada’s Red Ensign ﬂag incorporated the ﬂag of the United Kingdom, with whom Egypt had had a falling out. The Red Ensign was also unpopular in Quebec, a major base of support for Pearson’s minority Liberal government. But the leader of the opposition Conservatives, John Diefenbaker, wanted nothing to do with a new ﬂag. On May 27, 1964, the Liberal government introduced a motion to Parliament to adopt Pearson’s favoured “sea to sea” ﬂag, three conjoined red maple leaves on a white ﬁeld bracketed by blue bars at each end. The Conservatives demanded a national referendum on the new ﬂag, which Diefenbaker called the “Pearson pennant.” Pearson formed a multi-party committee of 15 members of parliament to evaluate and choose a new design. The eventual winner, an 11-point maple leaf on a white ﬁeld bordered by red bars, was created by George F.G. Stanley. It was unanimously approved by the committee on Oct. 29, 1964 and then by a majority vote in the House of Commons on Dec. 15. Queen Elizabeth proclaimed the new ﬂag on Jan. 28, 1965 and it was ﬁrst raised over Parliament Hill in a noon ceremony on Feb. 15.
