Controversial BCeSIS system to be scrapped by the province $89-million student records system source of numerous complaints from teachers, school administrators By Wanda Chow NEWSLEADER

News that the Ministry of Education plans to scrap its problematic British Columbia enterprise Student Information System (BCeSIS) was greeted with a mixture of kudos and criticism Monday. The announcement was made following the release of a review of the system by consultant Gartner Inc. in which it recommended that it be replaced. The $89-million provincewide system was created as a way of keeping students’ records in one place to make it easier to keep track of them when they move between districts and for those districts to share the students’ information. “The current system is meeting the basic educational needs of the province’s

schools, districts and the ministry,” the Gartner report said. “However, schools are not taking advantage of all of the functions the system has to offer and as a consequence, it is not delivering the full functional needs that exist nor is it well positioned to meet the future needs of education within B.C.” The system has been the subject of numerous complaints by teachers and school administrators that it was prone to crashes and it was hard to access. “I creates more work than probably doing it by hand,” said Burnaby school board chair Larry Hayes, recalling the feedback he’s received. While he believes such a system is necessary, “unfortunately, this particular system that was implemented didn’t work the way it should. It was certainly a waste of valuable resources.” Greg Frank, Burnaby school district’s secretarytreasurer, said the system has been in place in Burnaby for about four years during which time it was required to pay about $260,000 annually to use it.

get onto and being very slow and cumbersome to work with. It also took excessive amounts of teachers’ and administrators’ time away from the work they’re supposed to be doing. “That’s $100 million down the drain,” she said, questioning whether the government did their due diligence before purchasing the system. “From early on we knew we were going to have to be paying for the privilege of providing data to the government,” she said of BCeSIS’s $10 per student fee districts pay each year. She noted it’s similar to the money already cash-strapped school districts pay to use the computer system that calculates how much they need to pay in carbon offsets. “They were told you had to basically provide the stick that you’re going to hit yourself with.” The $260,000 Burnaby pays each year “is a pretty significant amount of money for a system that doesn’t work,” Corrigan said.

He confirmed that the system crashed during school start-up last September when it wasn’t able to handle the load of many people trying to use it at the same time. However, he added, improvements were made so that the system has worked much better this year. The province is aiming to have a new system in place by 2014. The Gartner report states that BCeSIS “should be capable of supporting the current and short term needs of the province for the next three years.” It couldn’t come soon enough for Burnaby-Deer Lake NDP MLA Kathy Corrigan, who heard from numerous teachers and administrators “expressing huge frustration” over the system during her time as a Burnaby school trustee. “The report commissioned by the provincial government has essentially said that it’s a colossal waste of money, taxpayers’ money, that could have gone to teachers or playgrounds.” Corrigan recalled hearing complaints of BCeSIS crashing repeatedly, being hard to

NEWS BRIEFS 24-YEAR-OLD BURNABY MAN KILLED

OWNER OF PRECIOUS RING SOUGHT

Burnaby RCMP believe the driver of a pickup was impaired when he struck and killed a pedestrian early Saturday on Lougheed Highway. On Sept. 17 at about 4:40 a.m., a 25-year-old man was walking along Lougheed on the inside shoulder, beside the concrete median of the westbound lanes when he was struck near Phillips Avenue by a red 1997 Ford F150 pickup truck. Police are recommending charges of impaired driving against the driver. Anyone with information is asked to call Const. Collins at 604-294-7922.

A 24-year-old Burnaby man is dead and a 22-year-old man charged with his murder after a fatal stabbing in east Vancouver early Saturday morning. The victim was allegedly stabbed by another passenger inside a moving vehicle in the 1300-block of Victoria drive at around 12:30 a.m. Sept. 17, say the Vancouver Police Department. The driver, fearing for his safety, stopped the vehicle and fled. Nearby citizens checked the car and called 911 after seeing the injured man inside. He died of his injuries in hospital at about 1 p.m. that day. Shane Frederick James Yukich, 22, has been charged with one count of murder. He is known to police in Metro Vancouver and Ontario for violent and property-related offences.

Staff at Lougheed Town Centre are trying to find the rightful owner of a woman’s wedding ring found at the mall Aug. 11. The ring is described as an 18K yellow gold, three-band Birks ring with a setting of 15 diamonds. It was found by a concerned customer outside the mall entrance adjacent to Tim Hortons who then handed it in to the mall’s security department. Lougheed Town Centre hopes to reunite the owner with their ring. Anyone claiming it will have to be able to identify it in detail. Anyone with information is asked to call Brent Findley at 604-566-8003 or findley@shapepm.com.

PEDESTRIAN STRUCK

The ritual and experience of tea By Mario Bartel NEWSLEADER

A young woman wearing a Mao cap and strategic facial piercings is perched at the bar awaiting her beverage. But instead of a hoppy pale ale or a sweet mojito, barkeeper Jennifer Long is pouring her a tall take-out cup of tea. The Great Wall Tea Co. at the River Market at Westminster Quay is the new hangout for college students on the go, commuters on their way from SkyTrain to condos along the boardwalk and passersby curious about the honeycomb wall of large colourful tins that hold 160 varieties of flavoured tea leaves behind the stand-up bar. According to the Tea Association of Canada, Canadians drink almost nine billion cups of tea each year. That’s expected to increase 40 per cent by 2020. Tea is hot, says Long. “I think the exclusivity of tea has gone by the wayside. People are more curious about tea.”

Steeped for centuries But it’s a trend that’s been steeped for hundreds of years. Ayako Sakaino teaches the discipline of the traditional Japanese tea ceremony at the National Nikkei Heritage Centre in Burnaby. She’s also formed a club for aficionados to learn more about its

intricacies and history. That history dates to the ninth century when the Buddhist monk Eichu, upon his return from traveling in China, prepared and served sencha, or unground Japanese green tea, to Emperor Saga. The Emperor was so impressed he ordered the cultivation of tea plantations in the south-central region of Japan’s main island of Honshu. While tea’s popularity waned for a time, it got renewed life in the 12th century when Buddhist monasteries incorporated powdered green tea into religious ceremonies. By the 13th century tea had become a status symbol among the country’s warrior class and 300 years later every level of Japanese society was drinking tea. That’s when Sen Rikyu developed the Japanese “way of tea” based upon a philosophy that each meeting is unique and should be treasured. The preparation and presentation of the tea incorporates the principles of harmony, respect, purity and tranquility. For Sakaino, the tea ceremony is an important connection to her heritage. She first learned its deliberate preparation and serving rituals when she was 18. At the time, she says, every young Japanese woman was expected to learn the tea ceremony, or flower arranging or calligraphy; it was part of

Jennifer Long says some of the customers at the Great Wall Tea Company just close their eyes and point to one of the tins holding more than 160 varieties of tea.

learning how to be a good hostess. She studied the tea ceremony for seven years, eventually earning her qualifications to teach it. But then life got in the way and it wasn’t until she immigrated to Canada 40 years ago that her interest was reinvigorated. “It was my doorway to Japanese culture,” says Sakaino. The measured movements involved with the tea ceremony are a form of meditation, she says. “When I am doing tea ceremony, I cannot think about anything else.”

age of three, the first sound he remembers hearing every morning was the tea kettle in the kitchen being turned on by his mother. The Taylors of Harrogate tin was always on the counter, the “Brown Betty” teapot tipped for every meal and mid-afternoon break. Family crises or a bad report card were salved with a cup of tea. “It’s a British thing,” says Bradshaw, who owns Sherlock’s British Sweets and Tea Room in New Westminster. “We take our tea seriously. If you took that away, there would be a national revolt.” And there are few customs more British than High Tea, a service he’s been offering at his Columbia Street shop for the past year and a half.

wrapped in a fuzzy knitted tea cozy, a three-tiered tray is placed on the table, small square white bread cucumber and egg salad sandwiches on the bottom, freshly-baked scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam on the middle tray and sweet treats like Bakewell tarts and chocolates on the top tier. High tea is “something special, something that takes you away from day-to-day life,” says Bradshaw, who remembers his mom packing up her fine china cups and tea service for summer excursions to Hyde Park where the family enjoyed high tea next to the swans swimming in the lake. “The feel of romance is a great part of it.” At The Great Wall, Jennifer Long says some of her customers still ask for just a “regular” tea, but most are more adventurous, keen to try the myriad of varieties and flavours with exotic names like Lychee Gongou, Pink Grapefruit, Yunnan and Buckingham Palace. “People are discovering what they like in a tea,” says Long. “The tea experience is learning about where it comes from, where it’s grown, how it’s produced and how that affects the taste. The ritual of tea is part of the fun. It’s about the exploration and adventure of tea.” photo@burnabynewsleader.com

NEWSLEADER

After a year-long wait, Jeffrey Ciachurski ďŹ nally got the keys to his new car last Thursday at the Carter GM dealership in Burnaby. The occasion was one worthy of photos and media interest since the car he was buying, the Chevrolet Volt, has been one of the most anticipated in some time. The Burnaby dealership was one of a handful to receive the car in Metro Vancouver, one of seven cities across Canada to receive them in the initial rollout. The Volt is the ďŹ rst fullyelectric vehicle that has an extended range, thanks to a gasoline-powered generator that will produce electricity after the battery has been depleted. A fully-charged battery has a range of 40 to 80 kilometres before needing to be recharged, which can be extended by another 500 kilometres on a full 35-litre tank of fuel until it can be plugged in or refueled. That makes it feasible to use on longer trips, said Bill Mitchell, president of the

Carter Automotive Family. The battery can be charged using a standard 120-volt outlet, or a 240-volt outlet, the kind a household dryer runs on, for a faster charge. Mitchell said when he testdrove the Volt, he went 160 kilometres without having to burn any fuel. “If you commute less than 60 kilometres a day, you should never burn any fuel.â€? He estimated that at today’s electricity rates, it would cost $1 to $1.25 a day to charge. The base model Volt sells for about $43,000. For Coquitlam resident Jeffrey Ciachurski, the car is a further extension of his commitment to alternative energy. As chief executive ofďŹ cer of Vancouver-based Western Wind Energy Corporation, which operates wind turbines in California, he was quick to outďŹ t it with a vanity licence plate that reads “wndpwr.â€? Ciachurski plans to practically eliminate his carbon footprint for the car by purchasing emission offset credits, which certiďŹ es that the electricity he purchases from BC Hydro to charge it comes from renewable energy sources. He called the Volt “game changing technology,â€? explaining that its battery can store renewable energy, something akin to the Holy Grail of sustainable energy. He said that a home’s electrical system could

be outďŹ tted to pull power out of the car’s battery. That’s something that might be appealing when BC Hydro moves to a system where people are charged a higher rate for power at peak usage periods. In that case, the Volt’s battery could be charged at non-peak periods, the electricity stored, then utilized during peak periods to save money. Ciachurski stressed that while such a use of the Volt would be technically possible, it is likely not yet legally possible and might put the car’s warranty at risk. In the meantime, he’s enjoying the luxury style and ďŹ nish of the car which he was pleasantly surprised to ďŹ nd was faster than he expected. “My fear was it was going to drive like your grandmother’s car. I stepped on the pedal and this thing is fast.â€? He likes the car so much he’s committed to purchasing nine more for his staff in an effort to make his company’s car usage 100 per cent certiďŹ ed green. But they’ll likely have a bit of a wait. Mitchell said before supply becomes more widespread in about a year, over the next six months his Burnaby dealership will receive about 12 more of the electric cars. “They’re all spoken for.â€? wchow@burnabynewsleader.com

10 years for SBNH rally

Eliminate shoulder pain in just a handful of treatments.

By Wanda Chow NEWSLEADER

South Burnaby Neighbourhood House (SBNH) hopes to mark the 10th anniversary of its annual car rally on Sunday by raising another chunk of money towards a new childcare facility at Gilpin school. This year, as in 2010, the project to build a permanent out-of-school care facility at Gilpin will be the recipient of proceeds from the fundraising event. SBNH executive director Antonia Beck said they hope to raise about $16,000 this time around. The Gilpin parent group needs to raise $200,000 to install two portables on the school grounds by June 2012, a condition of the Burnaby school district allowing it to use a classroom temporarily for the centre. As for the car rally, it will continue with a change made last year to shorten the route, keep it more local, and end the event earlier so participants can get home in time to have dinner with their families. The rally now raises twice the money it did in its first year, when about $8,000 was raised, and attracts more sponsors, said Beck. It’s also a regular event for local companies who use it as a teambuilding exercise for employees, she said, noting

Terence Yee, Doug Hallett, Gill Sherwood and Harminder Basi, of G&F Financial Group, look a little directionally challenged as they prepare to participate in the South Burnaby Neighbourhood House annual car rally.

this year RBC has three teams participating. There are still a few spaces available for two-person teams, each comprised of a driver and a navigator. Cost per team is $300, which includes meals and prizes. The car rally starts from the G&F Financial parking lot on Kingsway, near Edmonds Street, at about 9 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 25 with registration and a light breakfast. The route, which is always kept secret leading up to the event, will include checkpoints where

teams stop for interactive activities. It’s not a race, as each team is timed individually, and success depends on their ability to figure out riddles and clues as they go along. It will end with a late lunch, awards presentations and door prizes at Eagle Creek at Burnaby Mountain Golf Course, all winding up by about 3 p.m. To register or sponsor a car rally team, or for more information on the Gilpin daycare, call South Burnaby Neighbourhood House, 604-431-0400.

—EDITORIAL—

Rivers form lifeblood of this province Sunday is World Rivers Day. It’s a celebration and recognition of the importance of waterways for commerce, recreation and, most importantly, the environment. The occasion has special significance in Burnaby and New Westminster. World Rivers Day was founded by BCIT instructor and environmentalist Mark Angelo. Angelo’s passion for rivers is boundless. He’s paddled hundreds of them on six continents. And one of the world’s greatest rivers flows only a short drive from his office. The Fraser River is the tenth longest river in Canada. But its 1,375 kilometres have had a huge impact on the history, economy and culture of British Columbia. The salmon that swim up the river every year are a key food source to the First Nations. Explorers and settlers used it to access the province’s rugged interior and northern reaches. When they discovered gold, prospectors and miners traveled up the river to find wealth. Today, industry and housing hug its shores. Booms of giant logs float down river to be processed for export. Container ships and car transporters travel up river, their holds filled to bursting with imported cargo that will be distributed across Canada by rail and truck. In fact, the Fraser is such an integral part of B.C. life, it’s easy to take it for granted. Which is exactly why the Fraser, and the hundreds of smaller rivers and streams that flow into it must be cherished and protected. They are the veins and arteries that bring life to much of our province.

Question of the week

similar style, and there are indications that it may have been produced in Toronto. The website, canttrustcummins.ca, uses a bug-eyed photo of the former fisherman-MP that makes him look like a ray gun-wielding alien from the movie Mars Attacks. In fact our whole political scene is starting to look like a rerun of a bad 1990s movie. It was Reform BC that rose from the ashes of Social Credit, and inspired a desperate Gordon Campbell to sing country music and take a hard line on aboriginal relations, to stitch the ruptured right back together. Cummins defined himself as a Reform-AllianceConservative MP by railing against treaties, and that continues to be the core of his thin policy book. His other two main ideas are also pure rural populism. He vows to scrap the carbon tax and suggests that municipalities should cut their costs to fund transit. Voters will have a better idea by the end of this week if Clark’s plan for “defending and creating jobs” is really new policy, or merely more photo ops. B.C. has had its first taste of California-style tax revolt. Now we have two years ahead that will be dominated by relentlessly negative, continuous campaigning. ■ Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com

Culture Days are back! L

iving on the beautiful west coast at times leads to a disconnect from the rest of the country—though most often, we’re not complaining. In the arts world however, this separation can be more apparent. Fortunately, to the rescue is Culture Days, a coast-to-coast celebration of arts and culture in communities across Canada. In its second year in British Columbia, Culture Days showcases free hands-on arts activities and performances the weekend of Sept. 30-Oct. 2. Culture Days’ mandate is simple—“to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement by all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. Every individual, regardless of age, background or experience, has the right to access and participate actively in the arts and cultural life of their community.â€? After all, not only does Canada’s arts and cultural sector contribute to the economic and social development of its communities; it contributes to the overall well-being of its citizens as well. From culinary arts in Swift Current, Saskatchewan where participants will learn the surprisingly complex art of making speciality coffees to experiencing the art of ďŹ lmmaking in Kingston, Ontario, by producing a short Sher Hackwell ick, provinces are enthusiastically on board. Each province has its own volunteer Culture Days Task Force formed of key stakeholders in the local arts community. Arts Umbrella’s Lucille Pacey holds the position of B.C.’s chair, and other key B.C. arts ďŹ gures, including Greater Vancouver Alliance for Arts & Culture’s executive director Amir Ali Alibhai and Scott Walker, the Professional Arts Alliance of Greater Victoria’s coordinator are also helping out. Burnaby is pulling together a dynamic weekend of family fun including seven activities in the Deer Lake cultural precinct. Options include experimenting with “horse hairâ€? and “nakedâ€? Raku glazing techniques with ceramic artist/ instructor Linda Doherty and viewing an open rehearsal of 2011 artist in residence Daelik Hackenbrook and MachineNoisy’s new dance work Tempus Fugitive, premiering at the Shadbolt Centre Oct. 12-15. Visit culturedays.ca and you can search by region, category or even plan an interactive “Brightspotsâ€? schedule for the

TransLink eyes big fare hike in 2013 Details to be determined: officials

ANNUAL TAX SALE

By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

The Local Government Act Sec. 403(1) states “At 10:00am on the last Monday in September, at the council chambers, the collector must conduct the annual tax sale by offering for sale by public auction each parcel of real property on which taxes are delinquent.” Prospective bidders are advised that it is their responsibility to search the title in advance to determine if there are any charges against the property. All properties are sold as is. The minimum bid is the upset price, which are the current taxes and penalties, arrears and delinquent taxes and interest, 5% tax sale costs and Land Title Office transfer fees. Upon completion of each sale, the successful bidder must make payment immediately before the auction continues to the next property.

Regular transit riders better brace for a big jump in fares in the spring of 2013. TransLink intends to seek approval next year for an average fare increase of 12.5 per cent. TransLink’s Moving Forward financial plan shows base fares are to remain frozen while monthly pass prices would jump 24 per cent in 2013. But TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie said the exact increases in each category are yet to be determined. Cash fares may go up that year, he said, and numbers in the plan showing a three-zone pass, for example, rising from $151 to $187.20 may end up less than shown. “It won’t likely all go on the passholders,” he said. “How that fare revenue is actually going to be generated will be the subject of consultations next year.” He said the numbers were included for accounting purposes only to demonstrate the revenue TransLink needs to raise in future years. Another big factor in the future of transit fares is that TransLink’s Compass smart cards arrive in 2013. “We’re going through a fare review right now to see how the fare structure will eventually roll out,” Hardie said. The Compass card will initially be designed to mirror the existing fare structure – including the current three zones – to ensure all systems are working correctly. Later, Hardie said, TransLink will redesign its fares “in a way that distributes the costs differently than they are right now.” Potential options include the elimination of fare zones in favour of charging more accurately by distance or time travelled.

WALKER, Mabel (Mae) Jane 1917-2011 Mae was born April 29, 1917, in Manyberries, Alberta, to Catherine & George Barton, moving to Lethbridge, Alberta when she was seven years old. Mae briefly entered the convent in 1936 in Belgium, but returned to Canada when last call was made for Canadians before the war broke out. She attended Normal School in Edmonton. Mae met Bill at a dance in Lethbridge when she was 16. They married in Marpole on February 4, 1942. Bill and Mae both worked for Boeing during the war years. They started a family and Mae worked as a substitute teacher in Coquitlam for many years. In 1964 they settled in New Westminster and got actively involved in Ballroom Dancing, winning numerous medals. When Bill retired in 1984 they took up cruising as a serious sport, travelling around the world including numerous Alaskan cruises. Mae passed away September 11, less than 5 months from their 70th wedding anniversary. Mae will be sadly missed by the love of her life, Bill, daughters Beverly Walker and Marilyn VanDongen (Casey), 6 grandchildren; Diane (Ricardo), Ken, Pamela (Magnus), Neil, Sheila (Shaun) and Natalie, 5 great grandchildren; Adrian, Oluna, Angelina, Xavier, and Taylor Mae.

OBITUARIES

Category: Great Men Clue: An accomplished electronics technician, skilled fisherman, adventurous pilot, walking Encyclopaedia and joke master this man could often be heard saying “git er done!”

Answer: Who is Vincent

(Grant) Gough

Grant was born in Vancouver on the 1st of May, 1929. For the past few months he was fighting a battle for his life and passed away on August 21, 2011. He lost his battle with cancer with grace, courage, determination and dignity, with his loving wife of 52 years by his side. This wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and friend left behind a family who loved him dearly and friends and neighbours who were lucky to know him. Grant will be remembered for his quick wit and sharp tongue. As the King of the one liner’s he had a heart like no other. An accomplished soul, whose intelligence and generosity benefited those who surrounded him Grant was one of a kind. His finesse for answering almost every clue on the game show Jeopardy was an inspiration to his family particularly his grandchildren who enjoyed spending time with their “Papa with the Beard”. The son of Annie and Vincent Gough he is predeceased by his sister Kathleen Smith (Gary). He leaves behind his wife and business partner, Joyce Eleanor; his daughters Barbara (Larry), Brenda (Alan), Cindy (Ted) and Belinda (Jim) and his son, Brian; many grandchildren; his Brother Barry Gough (Sandra) and several good friends and colleagues.

He will be missed and forever celebrated by all of those who loved him. A long time fishing enthusiast and resident of North Burnaby and Pender Harbour, his soul remains in the ocean and mountains around us, and in the hearts of those who had the privilege to be a part of this exceptional man’s life. A celebration of Grant’s life will take place in the near future. Friends of Grant who would like to be notified of the details for this occasion can e-mail your contact information to: belindaruckman@yahoo.ca
