FILM INDUSTRY INSIDERS FANS OF THE HST

Good business: Ron Hrynuik, general manager of Burnaby’s Bridge Studios, says the local film industry is benefiting from the HST. Having the new sales tax makes British Columbia more competitive with other North American jurisdictions, he says.

B.C.’s film and TV industry is already benefiting from the introduction of the HST, according to industry representatives. While other businesses, particularly restaurants, are seeing a drop in sales since the harmonized sales tax was introduced on July 1, film and television studios have noticed an increase in productions. “Since the HST was introduced, the activity of inquiries and projects landing in B.C. has increased significant-

ly,” Ron Hrynuik, general manager of Burnaby’s Bridge Studios, wrote in an e-mail. Because B.C. didn’t offer provincial sales tax exemptions to studios, as other provinces did, productions had to pay PST on set supplies and production equipment before July. “All of the PST that the productions used to have to pay, from lumber on all the sets, equipment rentals, right to the phone and furniture rentals at our studio, is eliminated,” Hrynuik said. “They get the HST back, and that really makes a difference on productions.” While it is not clear whether the tax shift attracted new film and TV business right away, studios and equipment providers noticed a change in

July. “It places us at a more competitive playing field with other North American jurisdictions,” he added. Peter Leitch, chair of the Motion PictureProductionIndustryAssociation of B.C. and spokesperson for the industry, could not be reached for comment as he was on vacation. Leitch, who is the president of Mammoth Studios in Burnaby and North Shore Studios in North Vancouver, submitted a column about the HST to The Vancouver Sun on Aug. 5. “The HST helps keep the lights on and the cameras rolling at North Shore Studios and Mammoth Studios and other locations across the province,” he

wrote. “Our industry succeeds when we are in a competitive place to do business.” Previously, Ontario gave tax credits to the film industry for PST paid, he said, while B.C. did not. “It’s the smart tax for B.C. because it removes the provincial sales tax businesses used to pay at every step of the supply chain,” Leitch wrote. “The paid PST was passed on to the consumer, embedded in the price of goods and services.” Now both provinces are on an even playing field to attract business, he added. B.C. is the third largest production centre in North America, after Los Film Page 4

SkyTrain staff help recover $200,000 cheque Alfie Lau

staff reporter

A grateful SkyTrain passenger was reunited with a lost $200,000 US certified cheque on the afternoon of July 29. The businessman lost the cheque shortly after 1 p.m. on Thursday and used the emergency platform phone at the Sapperton SkyTrain station in New Westminster to ask for assistance from SkyTrain attendants.

Within 20 minutes, two attendants had located the missing cheque on a SkyTrain at Gilmore station in Burnaby. The cheque was on the floor, underneath the seats where a mother and her young children were sitting. “The man was relatively calm when we talked to him,” said SkyTrain communications liaison Jennifer Siddon. “One of our attendants has 15 years experience and said it was certainly the most valuable item that had been lost

and found. … When staff received the call, they had no idea how valuable the cheque was.” After the cheque was located, while the SkyTrain attendants were matching the information on the cheque with the businessman’s identification, staffers realized how much the cheque was worth. “We regularly help passengers find lost items,” said Siddon. “It’s not every day you help somebody find a $200,000

cheque.” Siddon said the businessman was a bit embarrassed by the situation but was extremely grateful for the assistance SkyTrain staff offered him. Asked if the man offered a reward, Siddon said: “No, but we don’t expect a reward. This is part of what our staff does, and it’s what we do on a daily basis. … We’re just happy we were able to help this man find his lost item.” alau@burnabynow.com

Film: Industry hit by the recession continued from page 3

Angeles and New York, according to Leitch. “In 2009 there were more than 239 projects shot in B.C., generating more than $1.3 billion in production spending,” Leitch wrote. “More than $1 billion of that was from non-Canadian productions that chose to shoot and invest here.” This HST has had an especially large effect on film business in Burnaby, as the city is home to more than 65 per cent of Greater Vancouver studios, accord-

ing to Hrynuik. Burnaby is also home to the western division of a major film and television equipment supplier, William F. White. The company, based in Toronto, is Canada’s largest provider of film, TV and theatre production equipment, renting lighting and grip equipment and crystal sync generators to productions. The company also offers specialty equipment such as cranes and camera cars. Garin Josey, director of

marketing and sales at the Burnaby branch, agreed with Leitch’s assessment of the HST. “We had a number of series start up after July 1,” he said. “Whether it was just a matter of timing, I’m not sure.” The industry, which was hit hard by the recession, has responded positively to the new tax, Josey said. “It makes us more competitive,” he said. “Things are picking up.” – with files from The Vancouver Sun

Neighbours concerned about removal of trees A dozen trees have been cut down at Central Park during water main replacement Alfie Lau

staff reporter

It’s not quite the destruction of Central Park as some neighbours think, but it is the culmination of a four-year-long Metro Vancouver project to replace 10 kilometres of old water pipes between a pumping station and reservoir in Burnaby Heights Park to a pumping station and reservoir at Central Park. A dozen old-growth trees were taken down on the southeast side of Central Park between May and August as Metro Vancouver finishes the job it started in 2006. “This has been a very important project to replace these two aging water mains that have been in use since the 1920s and ’30s,” said Metro Vancouver senior project manager Bob Cheng. “We are in the last phase of the project, and by the end of the year, we hope to have completed the job.” Cheng said engineers and contractors take every effort to not disturb the environment, and they only cut down trees when absolutely necessary. “What people may not see is that we have to build an underground valve chamber next to the pump station,” said Cheng. “The trees we had to cut down earlier this week were so we could put that chamber in. … We worked with the city, the parks staff and with the golf course to make sure we cut as few trees down as possible.” Ryan Matheuszik, a student who lives across the street from the area, had a differ-

ing opinion. In an e-mail sent to the Burnaby NOW with the subject line, The Destruction of Central Park, Matheuszik writes: “Residents were promised that every effort would be made to spare the beautiful old trees on this end of the park. But the construction company working on the water main is cutting down many of the old growth trees in the park. “Most of these trees seem to be in no way interfering with their construction of the water main, under Patterson Avenue, but instead they seem to be cutting them down in order to make the movement of dump trucks in and out of the area slightly more easy for them. “The character of the park at this end has already been ruined, and I worry it will continue to the point where the few remaining trees will not survive the next big wind storm.” In a subsequent phone interview, the local resident clarified his thoughts. “The trees they took down (this week) seemed set back very far from the road,” he said. “I think the issue is that we were assured, as residents, that they would only cut down trees if absolutely necessary.” Matheuszik said he wasn’t alone amongst his neighbours in thinking the trees could have been spared. He added that when he tried talking to the workers taking down the trees, the only response he got back was the workers were just doing what the boss told them to do. Cheng said Metro Vancouver takes neighbours’ concerns seriously. “It’s unfortunate we had to cut down those trees, and it’s not something Metro Vancouver likes to do, but this was what had to be done to put this valve chamber

Hard at work: Water main replacement work at the east side of Central Park. underground.” As for any future trees being chopped down, Cheng said there are no further plans to take down any more trees.

“We’re almost done with the final phase of this project,” he said. “We’ve been going at this since May 2006, and we are looking forward to finishing this project.”

tracts. The Liberal government has been supporting the fight to keep that information private for close to a decade. But Elizabeth Denham, the commissioner, said, “Health authority outsourcing contracts must be disclosed.” Will the Liberals try one more time to keep that information under wraps? Perhaps. But we hope not. Companies such as Sodexo Canada are not working for the Liberal government – or the hospitals. They are, in fact,

working on the public’s dime – taxpayer money. The public deserves to know how its money is being spent, but also whether they are getting good value and service for their tax dollars. And, perhaps equally important, the public needs to know what standards of service have been agreed to in those contracts and how the government is evaluating performance. We applaud Denham for her ruling. Now, let’s see what we’ve been paying for and if we’ve gotten value for our tax dollars.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Liberals should listen to people

Dear Editor:

The signatures have been counted and the people have spoken – here in Burnaby, more than 30,000 people signed the petition to get rid of the HST. Amidst this tremendous showing of citizen engagement, Burnaby-North MLA Richard Lee finds himself in a unique position, as one of a handful of MLAs that sit on the legislative committee that will decide the fate of the HST initiative. Mr. Lee should agree to meet as soon as possible. If he fails to do so, Mr. Lee would not only let down the more than 700,000 British Columbians who have made their position on the HST clear but also the more than 10,000 of his own constituents who signed the petition. But the B.C. Liberals have been refusing to move forward on the HST initiative, citing a court case

brought forward by a group of organizations that have donated more than $381,500 to their party since 2001. Rather than hiding behind B.C. Liberal powerbrokers, Mr. Lee must stop stalling and respect the people he was elected to represent. At the very least, he should call for the HST bill to be tabled in the legislature and allow a free vote, so all MLAs can decide whether to stand up for their constituents. By making excuses, Mr. Lee and the other B.C. Liberal members of the committee are only fuelling public anger and distrust. Last week, Elections B.C. found that the HST initiative was successful but refused to forward the petition to the legislative committee due to the court case. However, the B.C. Liberals are still free to meet and act on the public’s HST concerns – something they should do as soon as possible. Kathy Corrigan, MLA, Burnaby-Deer Lake

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Environmentalists were right about automobiles

ers it a police state. Gosh, wonder if he’s ever visited that huge slave-labour tobacco plantation they call Cuba?

Re: The more things change, Letters to the editor, Burnaby NOW, Aug. 18. Mr. Warkentin says the only thing that hasn’t changed is the environmentalists who at the time decried the loss of horse transportation which they, according to him, claimed was ”the worst environmental disaster the world had ever seen.” Turns out they may have been right. I can’t think of anything that has been worse than gasoline. Also, I believe environmentalists are funded by the minority he denigrates and not by taxes, but if they are it’s fine by me. Someone has to watch the store.

Canada is ‘a real joke’

Dear Editor:

Russ Leach, Burnaby

If you don’t like the U.S., then why not stay home? Dear Editor:

Mr. Garth Evans seems wont to inform us that in two (count them, two) recent trips to the republic to our direct south, he has found that the 9/11 disaster has changed things there. What a revelation that is! Who would have thought so? Fear (even a pervading fear) and suspicion have caused Americans to throw away their freedoms because of the imposition of strict security measures that have allowed terrorists to win. He feels therefore that the United States is no longer the country it used to be and that, in fact, it has become a police state. Now, Mr. Evans does not speculate how Canadians would react if, say, Place Ville Marie, or maybe Metrotown in Burnaby, had been totally demolished during a sales event and several thousands of our friends and family were killed for no conceivable reason, other than the fact that some people disagree with our way of living. That said, there is a very simple solution to his problem. I would suggest that he stay out of the U.S., seeing as he consid-

Larry Bennett, Burnaby

Dear Editor:

Re: ‘Security’ means loss of freedom, Letters to the editor, Burnaby NOW. I normally agree with most of Mr. Evans’ views on political (or otherwise) issues. However, when he talks about the United States’ intrusive security measurers when Canadians cross the border, I couldn’t disagree more. Mr. Evans, those security measurers are taken for our safety, and, yes, with any security measure taken, we are bound to lose some form of freedom. But, when it comes to our safety, in my opinion, there is no such thing as being overly vigilant – and, for that, I take my hat off to America! Canada, on the other hand, while being busy trying to be so politically correct, is becoming, in my opinion, a real joke. Take, for example, the migrants issue. When I came to Canada, it took me over a year to complete the necessary paperwork to emigrate here legally. I had to have a sponsor willing to sign legal documents that would release the Canadian government of any monetary responsibilities for the first five years of my life here in Canada. Now a boat of almost 500 migrants arrives at our door, and here we are spending thousands of taxpayers’ dollars trying to figure out who they really are and/or what to do with them. I think we should make sure that the children are medically and otherwise looked after since, I’m sure, they had no choice in such a horrific and dangerous decision, supply them with the necessary aids for the voyage back and gracefully say “good luck and have a safe trip back.” That said, I do believe in being compassionate towards the less fortunate. But shouldn’t we practise that here at home first ? Frank Di Cesare, Burnaby

Why: Rules have been locked in continued from page 6

sometimes obscure. Everything from papal decrees to the shape of carts are given as reasons. But when automobiles came along, it became essential to codify it. Nations exporting cars tended to force it on their dependencies: England made sure India drove on the left, while Germany forced right-side driving on its Eastern European conquests in the late 1930s.

Whether the reasons are economic, practical, political, or cultural quirks, once a technology or system is locked-in, the costs of changing are usually too high to consider. Understanding lock-in gives us another way to view the world. It may not make it any less frustrating for me to find the X key when I’m typing, but at least I know why it’s there. From nuclear power

to the red-yellow-green traffic lights, from reading left-to-right to looking at maps with north at the top, a lot of our lives are governed by rules that were locked in generations ago. They may not matter anymore, but we still live with the consequences every day. Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance, a sister paper of the Burnaby NOW.

Liquor: Mayor says province should consult with municipalities continued from page 1

deal with it.” The province often responds to business interests, but that doesn’t help when the residents are unhappy with the result, Corrigan added. “The provincial government often simply responds to what business wants,” he said. “They need to balance that with the community (interests).” The City of Burnaby has always been cautious about implementing additional rules about liquor licences in the city, he added. “We’re very careful about implementing any additional rules on the liquor zoning process,” Corrigan said. “We always put on a belt and suspenders (approach) when it comes to licensing.” Corrigan wants the pro-

vincial government to consult with municipalities, as well as police, before changing any licensing requirements, he said. “They need to come out and let us respond to the changes.” Corrigan believes the B.C. government could gain from consulting with municipalities as well. “They could benefit from our on-the-ground experience,” he said. “We should be listened to.” Harry Bloy, Liberal MLA for Burnaby-Lougheed, hadn’t heard much about the issue when he was contacted on Thursday but said he had called the ministry and was told there would still be a consultation process with the city on liquor licensing. Rich Coleman, minister of housing and social devel-

opment, was not available for an interview, according to ministry staff. The assistant deputy minister and general manager, Karen Ayers, issued a letter to B.C. mayors and councils regarding the changes. “The role of local government with respect to

liquor licensing remains the same and has not changed as a result of recent amendments to the Liquor Control and Licensing Act,” Ayers wrote. The only item under review is the process local governments have to go through to provide input on new liquor-primary

applications, she said. The government is considering providing more flexibility to municipalities when it comes to what information has to be submitted in regards to the applications, depending on the size and nature of the establishment, she added. “In all cases, local gov-

ernment input will still be required on liquor licence applications as they are today,” Ayers said. The Liquor Control and Licensing Branch would be consulting with the UBCM Liquor Policy Working Group before proceeding with any changes, she added.

City approves projects to save energy

Sounds of summer:

The Rogue Messengers offer up their musical stylings at Burnaby’s Civic Square as part of the city’s free Summer Sundays concert performances, which are being held until the end of August.

Burnaby council approved seven citywide energy conservation projects at a cost of $180,000 last month. The projects include: ◆ electric control hardware and software installation at McGill Library to reduce heating and air-conditioning consumption; ◆ insulation placed around ducts at Confederation Centre to prevent heat loss; ◆ replacement of the current lamps with energy-efficient lamps at Bonsor Recreation Centre, Burnaby Lake Arena, Kensington Arena and Bill Copeland Arena; and ◆ motion sensor installation in the change rooms at Burnaby Sports Complex to reduce light usage. jfuller-evans@burnabynow.com

Cancer: The silent side effect on families Partners can suffer impacts in the workplace because of the need for time off Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Shawna Little thought helping her partner deal with Stage 4 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma would be difficult enough. She did not expect her employer to make it even more difficult for her. Little’s partner came to Vancouver for treatment after being diagnosed last March, staying in Burnaby at a condo they own near Gilmore SkyTrain station. Little commuted from Calgary, where they lived at the time, for six months. She left every Friday evening to take care of him, and returned to Calgary early Monday morning, going straight to work. Little was a sales representative at a company in Calgary, which she would not name. Her company made it very difficult for her to take time off, she said, and managers constantly critiqued her sales performance during that time, though she had worked

well for them for a couple of years. “They made it a living hell for me,” she said, adding managers would ask how her partner was doing but didn’t really seem to care. Little’s partner couldn’t sleep when he was getting chemotherapy, she said, and was “sick as a dog.” During the week his mother, a retired nurse, would be with him, but on weekends Little had to manage alone, she said. She did not get much sleep either, taking care of him all weekend, and traveled back to performance reviews. “They really didn’t care, just cared about what your numbers are at the end of the day,” Little said. She had to use up her vacation time if she needed to attend appointments or help him through a difficult period, she said. “I’m in my late 20s, I don’t have a lot of vacation time,” Little said. She relocated here in September. When she was looking for a new job, she was open about her partner’s illness and told potential employers that a work/ life balance was important to her. She interviewed with the Sports Mom Network – a company that connects stay-

Marathon swim raises $4,500 for hospital Niki Hope

staff reporter

A Burnaby woman’s fundraiser for B.C. Children’s Hospital went swimmingly. Elise Niessen managed to almost double her fundraising goal when she swam 170 laps over the course of four hours at Canada Games Pool. Niessen had hoped to raise $2,5000 through her pool odyssey for the neonatal intensive care unit at Children’s, but she ended up bringing in $4,551. “The best part was all the wonderful people that stopped by and cheered me on,” Niessen wrote in an e-mail to the Burnaby NOW. Niessen said that coverage in the NOW helped get the word out about her cause. Some of those who came by to root for her during her epic swim had read about her story in the paper, she said. The 27-year-old was inspired to do the swim after meeting her cousin’s baby, who was born with holes in her heart. The family had to wait till the baby weighed enough so surgery could be performed, and now, at six months, she’s OK. “Now she’s a healthy baby. It’s incredible,” Niessen said last month. “This unit

Heritage efforts earn award City earns prestigious international honour for its interactive atlas project

The City of Burnaby has won a prestigious international award for its Charting Change: An Interactive Atlas of Burnaby’s Heritage initiative. The award, called the ArchivesNext “Best Re-purposing of Descriptive Data” award, was shared with the world-renowned Smithsonian Institute. ArchivesNext is an American weblog with a monthly audience of

10,000 and showcases topics related to archives and technology. “One of the goals of the Charting Change project was to bring together Burnaby’s heritage resources in a useful, accessible and interesting format that allowed our community to interact with and experience their history in a new way,” said Arilea Sill, archivist for the city, in a press release. “The nomination and award announcement is a mark of success and recognition for the city as a whole for the creative approach it has taken in sponsoring such programs.” “I’m thrilled that Burnaby archives is being acknowledged internationally

for their creative work that benefits all Burnaby citizens,” said Mayor Derek Corrigan. “I look forward to Burnaby continuing to lead the way in taking creative, innovative approaches to all new opportunities.” The project was launched in February 2010 and funded, in part, through a Department of Canadian Heritage grant. The city also provided money through its gaming funds. Submissions for the award came from Holland, Texas, the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. and Burnaby. The Creating Change initiative can be accessed at www.heritageburnaby. ca.

RCMP: Family lodges complaint about conduct continued from page 11

summer school class so that he could concentrate on getting better. Burnaby RCMP media spokesperson Sgt. Ted De Jager told the Burnaby NOW on Aug. 12 that because the case is currently under active investigation, he could not offer comment. But De Jager did explain the process of how citizens can lodge complaints against the RCMP and what a prospective time frame would be. De Jager said people can either

lodge their complaint by coming to the main detachment and filling out a complaint form or they can go through the Commission for Public Complaints. Going through the commission, as Correal did, usually means the complaint goes through division headquarters before being funnelled back to Burnaby, where a full-time professional services officer looks into the complaint. Going directly through the detach-

ment means the professional services officer starts immediately on the complaint. “It’s very hard to put a time frame on something like this,” said De Jager. “We have to do a thorough investigation, and we try to get it done as quickly as possible because any public complaint is a priority for us. … That’s why we have a full-time officer who looks into it.” alau@burnabynow.com

They’ve got the power: Buz McCain, program manager for Ballard Power Systems, displays a hydrogen fuel cell generator.

Ballard finds new markets for power Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Ballard Power Systems has left the automobile industry behind and is now creating energy on a much larger scale. It is a step that could lead to the company’s first profitable year in 2011, according to Ballard’s chief commercial officer. The Burnaby-based company has completed testing and is sending an 18-wheeler semi-trailer-sized hydrogen fuel cell generator to Eastlake, Ohio. “It is big enough to provide power

to many people,” Michael Goldstein, Ballard’s chief commercial officer, said. The generator can create enough electricity to light 7,000 homes or provide all power for 400 homes, according to Goldstein. It is the largest such fuel cell generator in the world, according to Ballard. The generator – called CLEARgen and based on Ballard’s proton exchange membrane technology – is going to Ohio’s FirstEnergy Generation Corporation for a five-year trial run. FirstEnergy Generation is a subsidiary

of the FirstEnergy Corporation, based in Akron, Ohio. The Ohio power company can activate the generator during times of high demand to take the strain off the power grid, according to Goldstein. It can generate one megawatt of power. The concept of grid-scale hydrogen power generators is a new one, Goldstein said. “It’s an emerging market,” he said. “And a new market for Ballard.” The generator is a proof point in the

company’s journey, he added. “It could be a major shift for us if the market grows.” Ballard has tried to focus on growth and near-term markets in recent years after the company decided to stop making automobile fuel cells in 2008. The new focus is working for the company, Goldstein said. In 2008, profits were up 30 per cent, 41 per cent in 2009, and for 2010 thus far, profits are slightly more than 50 per cent higher than they were in 2008. Ballard Page 14

Wireless to our company,” stated Thomas Skidmore, Glentel’s president and CEO. “Diamond has consistently delivered strong growth in sales and profitability, new store openings, and solid same-store sales growth year over year.” The company has also agreed to acquire the remaining 18.5 per

cent stake in Diamond Wireless, under certain terms and conditions, the press release said. Diamond Wireless operates 118 of its stores in malls and is a retailer of Verizon Wireless products. The deal, expected to close on Oct. 1, will be funded by cash, short-term investments, and a committed $35 million bank

facility, Glentel said in a statement. Glentel is a publicly traded company.

The GABA program in partnership with Dr. Suzanne Jacobsen and ABA Learning Centre has been providing intensive behavioural intervention and care to children diagnosed with autism in a childcare setting since 2004. The majority of children in the GABA program are from immigrant families, whose parents speak English as a second language. The need to be working or attending school for all our families and providing appropriate intervention for their child puts a significant burden on the family. For these families, the GABA program is the only option for their children with autism to receive

appropriate centrebased intervention. For many of the families it would be impossible to have a program provided in their homes. Intensive ABA intervention services have been scientifically demonstrated to be effective in teaching a broad range of skills to children with complex developmental

disabilities. By providing services in a licensed group s e t t i n g , these services cost approximately half the cost of a traditional homebasedprogram,the group program costing approximately $30,000– $35,000 annually and a home program which is estimated to be $60,00– $70,000 annually. The majority of the costs

EDMONDS EXPRESS XPRESS COMMUNITY DRIVEN NEWS FOR THE RESIDENTS & BUSINESSES OF BURNABY-EDMONDS

Stretching into her new role Burnaby resident director at Highgate

Niki Hope EDMONDS EXPRESS Her new position as director of the popular yoga centre at HighGate Village isn’t a big stretch for Catherine Lavallee. Before she made the leap to her new role, Lavallee was a health and fitness programmer for the City of Burnaby. She was also teaching yoga classes at Yyoga’s (pronounced ‘why yoga’) Highgate location. Now, like two hands coming together in the prayer position, she can merge the best of both worlds – administration and teaching – into a position that she loves. “It’s been pretty amazing,” she says, summing up her new role. Lavallee was a competitive ice skater and a fitness instructor, who just started teaching yoga about a year ago. She started practising yoga about seven years ago.

“I started practising yoga and started looking for more balance in my life,” she says. “I started going to yoga classes just randomly. I did some hot yoga, did some community centre classes.” When Yyoga’s Highgate location opened in Burnaby 2008, Lavallee was thrilled. “I really felt like the Highgate location was a gift that landed in front of me,” she says. “Anyone who wanted to practise yoga like this had to go to Vancouver. It’s so dreamy to have this in our own neighbourhood.” The studio offers a “true sense of calm,” Lavallee says. She lives close to the studio – her commute to work is a 20minute walk. The fact that she lives in the community – as well as her experience – may have been one of the factors that helped her get the job. “Yyoga wants instructors to be from the community they work in,” Lavallee says. “I think my Catherine Lavallee was recently hired to be the studio director at Yyoga Highgate. One aspect of her new role includes teaching yoga at the studio, which offers 70 yoga classes a week. Yoga PAGE 21 PHOTO Jason Lang

Your insurer offers protection even when you travel! You’ve loaded the car and you’re off on vacation! You can relax because your insurance broker has you covered. Personal items, such as cameras, camping equipment, and other items that are covered by your home, condo or tenants insurance are also covered even when you take them with you on vacation. Home-basedbusinessitems,however,require additional coverage, but at very little extra cost.

Protecting your home while vacationing

Because so many families take their vacations during June, July and August, these months are also the most popular months for burglary offences. In addition, power and freezer failures, as well as broken water heaters and pipes don’t go on vacation. Here are some tips to protect your home and valuables. Give a key to a trusted friend or neighbour so they can check inside the house every few days, take in the mail, turn on lights and open curtains periodically. In short, the house should be made to look lived-in. Have your lawn mowed during your absence. Disconnect the garage door opener. Lock the door between the garage and the house. Check that all other doors and windows are locked.

Saturday: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm

Call us today

for a better insurance experience!

Never hide a key anywhere outside. If you will be away from your home for fewer than 30 days you do not need to inform your insurer. However, you should still arrange for a competent person to look in on your home every day or two to make sure that everything is in good order.

For longer absences

If you are away for more than 30 days you should contact your insurance broker to determine whether you will need to inform your insurer. In all cases, you may want to arrange for a competent person to look in on your home every day to make sure that everything is in good order. Your insurance broker is your partner in protecting your home and your valuables, which makes for a stress-free vacation. It’s also a good idea to talk to them about your vacation needs, such as extended medical insurance when traveling outside the province or the country.

Rugged: It’s not the fanciest car on the road, but reviewer David Chao says there’s nothing like the iconic Jeep Wrangler for outdoor and off-road driving.

Jeep has built a legend David Chao

NOW contributor

There’s nothing fancy about the Jeep Wrangler. It’s not as fast or sexy as a sports coupe. It’s not as cargo-friendly as a hatchback or as comfortable as a sedan. And it’s not as imposing as a full-size pickup truck. But there’s nothing else like the iconic Jeep, and that’s what makes it truly special. Ask owners why they bought their Wranglers and the answer will be the same: No other vehicle offers the open-

air thrill of the legendary Jeep. It’s an American icon, a symbol of outdoor ruggedness, and one of the best off-roading vehicles to be found anywhere in the world. If you want one, there’s really only one question: How exactly do you want it? In 2007, Jeep addressed the Wrangler’s major shortcomings with the four-door Unlimited model. Riding on an extended wheelbase, the Unlimited adds useful rear seats and much more cargo space, and Jeep Page 27

MOTORING Jeep: Nothing like the Wrangler for top-down fun off the road continued from page 24

it has proven to be a popular choice for Jeep owners requiring more practicality in their vehicle. It’s still a Wrangler, but there’s something decidedly mature and grown-up about it, in contrast to the carefree twodoor. Perhaps the best way to describe the Unlimited is that it’s the sports sedan of Jeeps: half fun-loving runabout, half family vehicle. Of course, the decisions don’t end after you choose the number of doors. Do you want the Sunrider Soft Top, which can be folded open up front, dropped like a convertible, or removed completely? Or do you want the three-piece Freedom Top, which can be removed in pieces? Better yet, why not order both? While you’re at it, don’t forget the removable fullheight and half-height doors and the folding windshield. Add it all up, and there are roughly 60 different configurations for the Wrangler and 128 for the Wrangler Unlimited.

Design

Now in its third generation, the Wrangler was previously known as the YJ and TJ. Compared to the retired TJ, the Wrangler is bigger and noticeably wider, with a strong and planted stance and smoother exterior lines. To make room for the extra doors, Jeep stretched the Wrangler Unlimited’s wheelbase by 523 mm.

Otherwise, the dimensions are nearly identical to the two-door model in every respect. Equipped with a hard top, the Wrangler Unlimited is a rectangle on wheels. It looks great if you’re a Jeep driver who needs the extra doors and cargo space, but it may seem long and ungainly to everyone else. It looks best with the top off and the optional half-height, windowless doors, which give it the profile of a pickup truck. For its part, the twodoor Wrangler looks great in virtually every configuration. It’s purposeful and well-planted, with throwback details such as the engine-hood clips and oversized fenders.

feature. Compared to the retired TJ, the Wrangler has a much-improved suspension that provides a more stable and comfortable ride. Turns are wide and understeer is noticeable, but in general the Wrangler navigates city streets without difficulty. Jeep’s Command-Trac shift-on-the-fly four-wheeldrive system is standard equipment, and top-end Rubicon models get the awesome Rock-Trac system for unparalleled off-road manoeuvring.

Environment

The front bucket seats are very firm, as are the rectangular headrests that are surprisingly uncomfortable. Along with its extra doors, the Unlimited gains a three-person, 60/40split bench in place of the Wrangler’s two-seat bench, as well as a ton of cargo space. If you need to move lots of people or gear on a regular basis, there’s really no question as to which version you need. The cargo area is easy to access thanks to the sideswinging tailgate.

Performance

Under the hood, the Wrangler features a 3.8-litre V6 pushing 202-hp and 237 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s a reasonable powerplant but doesn’t duplicate the awesome torque delivery of the beloved 4.0-litre inline-six from the previous generation. The standard six-speed manual transmission’s shifter and clutch are light and relatively easy to operate. A nice function is the ability to disable the clutchstart interlock by pulling a fuse, which enables the Wrangler to start in gear. Anyone interested in serious off-roading will definitely appreciate this

Room to load: Ample cargo space is a selling feature of the Wrangler.

The Wrangler starts at a very friendly $19,095, while the Unlimited is $23,495. Both are available in Sport, Sahara, and Rubicon trim levels, and the base Sport can be had with a Mountain appearance package.

and off-road handling; numerous configurations. Thumbs down: Unlimited’s ungainly exte-

Burnaby pals on African soccer safari Tom Berridge sports editor

The World Cup is really just beginning for two North Burnaby soccer players. Goalkeeper Luciano Trasolini and striker Devon Jones are both soon to be heading off to South Africa, the scene of the recent FIFA World Cup won by Spain, as the Canadian representatives at the Danone Nations Cup World Final in Johannesburg Sept. 30 to Oct. 3. The pair earned the experience as members of the under-12 Canada West team that defeated an Eastern Canada select side 2-1 in a shootout at Lamport Stadium in Toronto earlier this month. The West came back from a 1-0 deficit to tie the score through a goal by Easton Ongaro of Edmonton off a corner kick by David Norman of Coquitlam late in the game. In the shootout, Luciano made two key stops, while the West Coast side scored on both of their penalty shot opportunities to win the Canadian final for the first time ever. “We were really excited. We scored and the other team was crying. We were shouting, ‘South Africa, South Africa’ and then doing our song, ‘Ole, ole, ole, ole,’” said Luciano. The two friends will leave on Sept. 26 for Montreal, where the team will spend four days training before taking off for Africa.

Jason Lang/burnaby now

Just like the pros: Goalkeeper Luciano Trasolini and Burnaby buddy Devon Jones helped Team West advance to the upcoming Danone Nations Cup world final in South Africa.

The trip has all the buildup and glamour to make any 12-year-old’s imagination run wild – buses to the stadium, security, and all those fans. It is small wonder that the two could easily make believe they were professional soccer players. “And we play in the real stadiums, but we don’t play a full field,” Devon said. Devon and Luciano have been pals since pre-

school. They both attended Lochdale Elementary until Devon transferred to Capitol Hill to take French immersion. Just recently, they found themselves on the same Whitecaps youth travelling team. They will also both suit up with the Burnaby Selects under-14 Metro team this fall. Although close, the two boys took different paths

towards embracing the beautiful game. “Luciano was really good at soccer, but I wasn’t,” said Devon. But Luciano dropped out of the game, only to return to it by the fourth grade. He decided then to become a goalkeeper because he said, he was not that fast a runner. Now he’s hooked. “When I watch goalies, and see how good they

are, it inspired me to be good like them,” Luciano said. “My cousin could have been a professional and he turned it down. I don’t want to be like him. He chose a girl.” Devon had to work at his game. “I was into other sports, but when I saw people do things, I would ask them how to do it. I started going Danone Page 30

Burrards break post-season jinx, back in hunt Tom Berridge sports editor

The Burnaby Burrards broke a two-year post-season jinx with a 13-7 victory over Iroquois champion Cornwall Island Redmen on Day 2 of the Presidents Cup senior lacrosse championships Tuesday. The West Coast senior B regular season champs erupted for seven second-period goals before coasting home to the club’s first win in the post season in two seasons. Up to Tuesday’s matchup, the Burrards had gone eight consecutive games in league playoffs and at the Presidents Cup without a victory. “It was good to get a win and get that monkey off our back after

two seasons. … “You could feel it in the dressing room. It was uplifting,” said Burnaby’s player of the game Quinn Waddington. “Luckily, we grabbed (the game) by the horns and finished them off.” The two teams entered the final game of the day without a win in the senior B national championships. Chris Fox opened the game with a goal for the host Burrards in the first minute of play. But the two teams traded goals throughout the period and finished knotted at 3-3 following unassisted goals by Kyle McCartney and Mike King, who both potted a pair in the win. Mitch Dibblee led off the second-period surge with a transition

goal with the two playing threeon-three. McCartney and Waddington then scored back-to-back power play goals that doubled the score 6-3 for the hosts. “It’s tough to stay disciplined when the game is so emotional and a rough game like that. But I think we were the more disciplined team,” said Waddington, who had a pair of extra-man goals in the period while also setting up McCartney for his second of the game. The Redmen tallied two goals in the final minute of the period to reduce the deficit to five goals. But Burnaby outscored Cornwall Island, who was playing its second game of the day, 3-2 in the final period.

Burnaby then vastly improved its chances for a possible shot at a medal on Saturday with a 10-5 victory over the West Coast league playoff winners, Tri-City Bandits on Wednesday. Rob Cook made 40 saves in the Burrards net. Cory Melville, Marcus Wooden and McCartney all had four-point outings for Burnaby over Tri-City. The Burrards opened the championships with a pair of losses to CanAm champion Onondaga Redhawks and Quebec representative Kahnawake Mohawks. The bronze medal game will be played Saturday at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre, beginning at 3 p.m. The gold-medal final follows at 7 p.m.

’Cudas strike B.C. water polo gold The Burnaby Barracudas kicked off the B.C. Summer Swimming provincial championships in Kamloops with five medals in water polo, including four gold. Burnaby got started in the under-12 P1 division, roaring back from a 3-1 deficit to defeat Abbotsford 11-3 in the gold-medal final. Reuel D’souza and Luka Maletic scored three goals apiece, while Kyle Jung and Sandro Miletic added a pair each. Garrett Yeo also tallied for the unbeaten ’Cudas. The u-16 Barracudas also won gold, winning all five matches played, including a 10-2 victory over North Vancouver to take the P3 division gold. Shanan D’souza led the teens with four goals, while Brian Huynh potted a deuce. Abdul Himamov, Sever Topan, Katerina Schwab and Jung also added single markers. Burnaby also finished first in the older age divisions, winning both the P4 u-18 and open groups. Amanda Hass capped the most thrilling final at the provincials, scoring the game-winning goal for the u-18s on a breakaway late in the final quarter. Burnaby took a 4-3 lead at the end of the third quarter after a scoreless first half on two goals by Shanan D’souza and singles by Huynh and Topan. The Barracudas then edged Fraser Valley 8-7 to win a fourth gold in the open class. Filip Juristovski, Kyle Yoshioka and Chris Toy scored two goals apiece for the winners. Evan VanNieker and Saara Majuri also tallied to avenge an 8-6 loss to the Valley earlier in the competition. The P2 Barracuda team finished with a bronze medal, coming back to beat Abbotsford 7-4 and avenge an earlier loss to the Valley club. Reuel D’souza, Gareth Jones and Maletic shared in the Burnaby team scoring. North Vancouver, 12-6 winners over the Barracudas in the semifinal, won the P2 gold.

TENPIN BOWLING

Renegade shares win with White Rock

Bowler wins three silvers at Americas Tom Berridge

sports editor

Two local bowlers brought back medals from the 48th annual Lee Evans Tournament of the Americas tenpin bowling championships in Orlando, Florida. Burnaby’s Jordon Jung won three silver medals in the junior 16 to 19 age group, while Miles Nerona of New Westminster won three bronze medals in the senior men’s division in the America’s competition, held in the first week of August. Jung teamed with Melissa Corchesne to win a silver medal in the junior A mixed doubles with an overall 2,458 pinfall. Jung and Corschesne were just over 100 pins out of first place which was won by an American pair. Jung helped the Canadian junior A team to another second-place medal in the 12-game team event. The U.S. won that event by nearly 800 pins. The Burnaby bowler also earned a third silver medal

in the team all-events competition. Jung placed fourth with partner Graham Fach in the junior men’s doubles in a tight race for placing medals with runner-up Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Jung finished fourth overall in the singles portion, placing just nine pins out of a medal spot behind Kyle King of the U.S. Jung rolled a 12-game total of 2,396 in singles. He was also fifth in the individual all-events final. Nerona and Canadian teammate Amneris Fernandez placed third in the doubles competition with a combined 2,172 score. Nerona also helped Canada nip Puerto Rico for the bronze with a 24-pin win in the team event. He also took home a third bronze in the team all-event competition. Nerona placed fifth in the senior men’s singles competition, with a 2,351 total, just 25 pins out of a fourth bronze-medal position. He was sixth in the individual all-events.

U-21 team seeks players The Sapperton Rovers of the Vancouver Metro Soccer League are looking for a couple of gold and Metro calibre players born from 1990 to 1992 for its new under-21 soccer team. The Rovers and the Burnaby Selects are combining to form the graduate team. The team will practise on Tuesday, Aug. 24 and Thursday, Aug. 26 at 9 p.m. at Mercer Stadium. For more information, call Peter at 604-522-9761.

to camps and learned better ball control and stuff,” Devon added. The boys were handpicked from among 7,500 young soccer players who took part in 10 soccer camps and four provincial Danone Nations Cup selection camps across the country. Now it’s upwards and onwards for the two aspiring national teamers. Qualifying teams from approximately 40 other countries, including defending two-time 2008 champion France, and

five new nations Haiti, Mozambique, U.S.A., Libya and New Zealand, will descend on South Africa next month for the 11th annual Danone Nations Cup. Last year’s Danone Nations Cup was postponed because of the H1N1 flu pandemic. The official draw will take place on Sept. 30, with two days of qualify-

ing matches to follow. The world final will be played on Oct. 3 in the 40,000 seat Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa. Along with France, South Africa, Russia, Spain, Argentina and Réunion Island are all previous winners of the Danone Nations Cup. Canada has never won the Danone Cup final.

Kelsey Haberl of Burnaby helped the White Rock Renegades win the senior women’s Canadian fastpitch championships in Kitchener, Ont., Aug. 15. White Rock defeated Ontario third-seed Pickering Heat 2-0 in the championship final. Round-robin winner and host Kitchener Coyotes won the bronze medal. The Simon Fraser University first base helped knock off the host team, registering a hit and scoring one run in a 10-7 victory that sent the Renegades to the gold-medal final. White Rock also got past Ontario champion Whitby Eagles, the third-place team from the round robin, 4-3 earlier in the day. The Renegades were 4-2 after the first three days of competition. Haberl had a hot bat in a 10-0 mercy-rule win over the Calgary Ice, going three-for-three at the plate with one run batted in and two runs scored in a 10-run first inning. The Renegades also dispatched Alberta champion Calgary Thunder 9-2. Haberl had two hits and two runs scored in the win. Haberl also knocked in two runs in an 8-6 defeat to Whitby on Aug. 12.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. Sunday begins four weeks of travel, communications, errands, curiosity, casual acquaintances, siblings, paperwork, news, and “daily business.” A busy, not important time. It’s busy partly because these activities (travel, communications, etc.) meet delays, misses, mistakes, forgetfulness. Keep a running “to do” list, take a list when shopping, etc. Your home, kids, a security or realty project remain front-and-centre. Finances, intimacy, lifestyle decisions favoured Sunday/Monday. Gentle love, wisdom mid-week. Ambition, Friday/Saturday.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Rest, lie low, contemplate, be charitable and spiritual now to late September. Don’t start new projects before Sept. 12. Anticipate delays, mistakes in administrative duties and government, institutional links. A tax or other neglected matter might return to demand completion. But in general, life will flow smoothly, your romantic progress (if you’re in one) pleases, life is sweet and nostalgic! (If you’re single, unattached, late January to early summer 2011 will bring a lucky partnership opening.) Romance, creative urges Sunday/Monday; exciting meetings Friday/Saturday. Work, mid-week.

Taurus April 20-May 20: Reject new starts, projects and relationships before Sept. 12. Loads of work streams your way, but there’s satisfaction, even affection in this. Also, a month of romance, pleasure, charming kids, speculation and beauty starts now! You’ll have lots of relief from all those duties. (But keep your eye on the ball, for late September will bring another basket of chores.) Your status/career meet luck Sunday (best) and Monday. Social joys, optimism, happiness and entertainment arrive Tuesday to Thursday. Your “destined love” is “around.” An old flame? Lie low, rest late week.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Projects, relationships and ventures begun before Sept. 12 will almost certainly meet overwhelming mistakes, indecision and delays. So stick with the ongoing, or past situations, especially in earnings and spending – an area that will generally be fortunate for the four weeks ahead. (An “unseen destiny” aids you in money areas midweek.) Double-check amounts on cheques, change at the store, watch your wallet, etc. Relationships demand (and reward) your attention Sunday (best) and Monday. Secrets, intimacy, lust, investments, debt, mid-week. Gentle love, wisdom Friday/ Saturday.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start no important new projects, ventures, relationships before Sept. 12. That might be difficult, as your mind naturally travels to the future for the next four weeks – you’re optimistic! Well, enjoy the state. Your popularity grows, social joys enter, entertainment, flirtations abound. A former lover or sweet friend might return. It’s fun and full of bounce, so don’t say no. But on a deeper level, the love here will raise issues of “deep duty,” perhaps of burden, or ”sweet sorrow.” You decide what’s worth what. Duties, sweet or not, appear Sunday/Monday, Friday/Saturday.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy and charisma soar this week through the next few, Virgo. But don’t start big new (or even small important) projects, nor relationships, before Sept. 12. So that leaves you in a bind: you’re in the best start time of the year energywise, and one of the worst circumstantially. Solution: seize something incomplete or abandoned from the past, and revive it. Best (past) place to look: earnings, money, possessions, rote learning, memory, a sensual contact, financial investment/debt, sexual bond, lifestyle change. Work’s lucky Sunday, relationships and travel lucky Tuesday/Wednesday.

Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of work and health issues begins Sunday. Yet your main experience will be pleasure this week. Sunday/ Monday feature social delights, happiness (attraction) in love, optimism, entertainment and wish fulfilment! Thursday night through Saturday boost your energy and charisma. (Saturday might bring a further development to Sunday/Monday’s attraction.) This week subtly furthers your (fortunate) destiny in work, career, and ultimately, finances. Even your “down time,” Tuesday to Thursday eve, flows smoothly: rest, think. Remember, start nothing major before Sept. 12.

Gemini May 21-June 20: Delay all new starts – especially in domestic, realty, Mother Nature and security spheres – until Sept. 12. You’ll be tempted to “jump early” in those domestic, realty (etc.) areas, as they grow large for the next four weeks. Let events evolve: destiny is on your side, especially financially. Romance (or the lack thereof) remains a strong secondary note. Love’s opportunities exist right into mid-September. However, better now if it’s an old flame – perhaps from a former neighbourhood. Love and/or friendship are favoured Sunday/Monday and Thursday night to Saturday. Mid-week, be ambitious.

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: A former job, career contact, parenting role, or status position might return now to Sept. 12. (“Destiny” aids here mid-week.) But don’t start brand new projects or relationships, especially in these areas. Instead, seize that past opportunity, or stick with ongoing ventures, while protecting them from delays, mistakes and misunderstood communications. Your social life remains happy, upbeat. A light, flirtatious romance could arrive (perhaps Thursday night through Saturday) – or better, an ongoing one thrives. (A brand new relationship will tend to stay light, not “grow.”)

August 22 - 28 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. A former educational, publishing, cultural, love, international, legal or intellectual interest, project or situation might return. (Or you daydream about it/him/her.) Returning to the past can reward. If an old flame returns, a strong “career” or ambition streak is involved – e.g., he/she perhaps was once your boss, or a major client. Chase money Sunday (best) and Monday. Travel, communications mid-week – a turn of destiny could bring, aid, one of those educational, international, etc. things! Let things end Thursday night through Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A former investment, debt, secret, sexual, research, lifestyle, criminal/ police, diagnostic or health situation could reappear before Sept. 12. It’s generally favourable, could be a doorway to profit, satisfaction. But think before you leap. During the same interval, start nothing new, especially in these areas. You’re going be dealing with heavy themes, serious matters! Gentle, true love, intellectual growth, mental creativity, pleasurable travel and/or legal process – all continue. Your energy, charisma surge Sunday/Monday. (Someone has romance on the mind!) Chase money mid-week. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Avoid new starts before Sept. 12 – in projects and, especially, in relationships. You’ll have plenty to keep you busy with ongoing links – including one from the past. These might “reappear” after some absence: negotiations, litigation, a relocation, partnership or business opportunity, or even an enemy. Take everything in stride, be flexible, diplomatic. You might face a choice: To join or compete. Joining’s better, as your competition holds the aces right now. Lie low, rest, contemplate Sunday/Monday. Your charisma surges mid-week, triggering success! Money caution after Thursday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
