Taking sides in a battle over war Janaya Fuller-Evans

staff reporter

StopWar’s message of peace is being questioned after the group organized a speaking event with controversial British politician George Galloway in Vancouver. Organizations that have endorsed StopWar in the past, including the City of Burnaby, are being targeted by a Stop StopWar campaign. But Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said the city isn’t backing down from its

endorsement of StopWar. “They’re trying to shut up George Galloway,” Corrigan said. “They’re trying to take away his right of free speech.” That isn’t something a newspaper, such as the NOW, should be part of, he added. “I’m stunned that you’re spending any time on it,” he said. Talks like Galloway’s will “stimulate discussion,” Corrigan said, and added the city still stands behind StopWar’s points of agreement. The StopWar coalition’s points of

agreement include building a broad-based peace/anti-war coalition, opposing war as a means of settling international disputes and opposing “the Israeli occupation of Palestinian and Arab lands.” The group’s website says it wants UN resolutions regarding the PalestinianIsraeli conflict enforced. Stop StopWar, based out of the University of British Columbia, is an email campaign asking politicians, unions and other organizations to revoke their endorsement of StopWar because of the

group’s link to Galloway, a former Labour MP from Scotland. The Burnaby NOW was contacted by letter writers for the Stop StopWar campaign, as well as Jonathon Narvey, editor of online magazine The Propagandist, about Burnaby’s support of StopWar. University of British Columbia student Daniel Meron, who works in Burnaby, said in a phone interview that he is part of the campaign and is hoping organizations revoke their endorsements.

A cool way to recycle the baby’s old bathtub

One way: It was a tight fit, but Cameron (who only gave his first name) found a baby bathtub to use as a toboggan on Burnaby Mountain. People took advantage of the fresh snow to have a bit of fun before it all turned to slush and rain. For more photos of the snow, see page 11 and visit our website at

Burnaby had its first real taste of winter on Thursday. Environment Canada reported around 10 centimetres of snow had fallen by the end of the day, causing trouble for commuters.

Simon Fraser University cancelled classes at its campus just after 3 p.m. because of the icy road conditions leading up the mountain, while TransLink also temporarily suspended its bus service to the campus for a few hours in the late afternoon and early evening. “We managed to survive,” said SFU

spokesperson Marianne Meadahl with a laugh. “It came a lot earlier this year and it’s not even technically winter yet but it helps us to get all our ducks in a row.” She added that students were advised to wait for bus service to resume rather than try and walk down the icy mountain. Snow Page 8

The spirit of Christmas giving Lakeview Elementary’s Angel Project benefits Burnaby Christmas Bureau Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

There’s a Christmas tree in the entrance of Burnaby’s Lakeview Elementary, decorated in tags, hung with ribbons, each bearing the name and age of a child. Luca, 13, Scarlette, 15, Caylee, 14 – they represent typical children registered with the Burnaby Christmas Bureau, a volunteer driven program that makes sure local lowincome families have food and presents for the holidays. As part of the Angel Project, Lakeview families pick a tag or two and buy an age and gender appropriate toy for that child. The donations then go to the bureau’s toy room at Metropolis at Metrotown, and registered families get to pick out present for their kids. Grade 7 student Allison Chima has picked two names from the tree: a boy named Carl, 7, and a five-year-old girl named Maya. For Carl, she got an educational video game, and for Maya, she 6

picked out something from the Littlest Pet Shop line. “It’s just nice. … You know you’re making them feel happy,” she says. “I know I’m really fortunate. To be able to give something to someone else makes me feel happy.” For Allison, Christmas is all about family being closer together and not fighting. “But the presents do make a difference,” she adds. “It would be difficult to know everyone is getting presents and you aren’t getting any.” Fellow student Shabnam Faiz feels the same way when imagining the holidays without toys. “It would feel like my mom and dad don’t care,” says the 12-year-old. “You’d feel bad for your own family. … The true meaning of Christmas is to be with your family.” But still, the toys help. “It shows that someone cares for you,” she says. This is the third year Lakeview has organized an angel project, and this year, they’re upping the ante. They started with 50 angel cards the first year, then moved up to 200 this year.

StopWar: Critics ask city to revoke endorsement of organization continued from page 1

“My primary concern is that StopWar is not a peace group,” he said. “The name is extremely misleading.” Meron, who is Jewish, said StopWar hosts speakers who do not want a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. “Yes, I support free speech,” he said. “But when the majority of the speech is siding with terrorists or extremists, no, I don’t support that.” StopWar organized Galloway’s speaking event in Vancouver, billed as addressing freedom of speech issues, as well as the conflict between Israel and Palestine, at St. Andrew’s-Wesley United Church in Vancouver last Monday. Galloway’s plans to speak in Canada in March 2009 were cur-

tailed when the Canada Border Services Agency said Galloway would not be allowed to enter the country, declaring him a security risk, backed by the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Jason Kenney’s staff, who said he was a terrorist supporter. He was considered a security risk because of his alleged financial contributions to Hamas, a Palestinian group that the Canadian government has declared a terrorist organization. But a Federal Court judge, Justice Richard Mosley, said in September that the ministry had tried to keep Galloway out of Canada because of his opposing political views, while also dismissing an application for judicial review on the incident, as Galloway never actually attempt-

But Siksay, MP for BurnabyDouglas, said he wouldn’t revoke his endorsement. “I think it is a very important coalition of peace activists,” he said. It is important to hear diverse opinions on issues such as the war in Iraq and the conflict between Palestine and Israel, he said. “It’s a very important group in Vancouver,” Siksay said, “(creating) dialogue about issues of war and peace.” Julian, MP for Burnaby-New Westminster, did not return calls before press time.

Shame on you, Burnaby Dear Editor:

Another year will soon be gone, and I find little comfort in knowing it’s another year that Burnaby has refused to step up on the homeless issue. Aside from a “study” and a tiny 30-bed shelter sitting way off the beaten track, the City of Burnaby has done little and should be ashamed. What is especially disturbing right now is knowing full well there are homeless in Burnaby struggling to stay alive in these brutal weather conditions. Our fearless leader’s last run-in with the homeless was this past summer when he was getting ready to rid the park of the vermin but stopped short because of some constitutional glitch. Yes, homeless people do have rights, including the right to shelter. Right now all is quiet with little mention made of the present situation. The press has chosen not to make this an issue, instead opting for comfortable stories and giving some guy named O’Neill prime rant space. Fingers will assuredly fly and point blame at other levels of government for not doing their jobs, but the bottom line is, we elect our civic reps to work with other levels of government to help get jobs done. We have studied homelessness to death, and it is time to do something besides nothing or worse, look the other way while that fragile someone, who is homeless, lights their candle in an attempt to stay warm and burns to death. I truly hope the people of Burnaby remember that they can do something about this situation. They can say something and, ultimately, when the time comes, they can

vote for a government that reflects a caring people. Right now, I’m embarrassed to say I live in Burnaby. Shannon Campbell, Burnaby

Conserve the mountain Dear Editor:

Re: Adventure race coming to Burnaby in May, Burnaby NOW, Nov. 20. The Mind Over Mountain Adventure Racing (MOMAR) website says, “In partnership with Tourism Burnaby, the MOMAR starts its season on the slopes of Burnaby Mountain on May 28th. And the final event returns to the historic mining town of Cumberland on Sept. 25. Both races will require teams to kayak, mountain bike, trail run, orienteer, bushwhack and trek their way through a challenging course.” The course for this event is still secret, but any onslaught by 400 or more bushwackers on Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area cannot be condoned.

Hotdog carts pose concern

Dear Editor:

Re: She wants to hawk hotdogs, Burnaby NOW, Nov. 24. It is seldom this occurs, so please read carefully. I tend to agree with the mayor’s reticence in the licensing of food carts, sometimes known colloquially as ptomaine wagons. Then there is the congestion on sidewalks and other public areas, which must compete, not only with pedestrians, but bicycles and skateboards and other conveyances, that are too dangerous on the curbside. Then there are dog walkers, baby strollers etc., etc., to contend with. And should the fair citizenry be forced to put up with the many odours that are emitted, not to mention fumes from fuel consumption? Given the mayor’s slate of favourites, we must ask ourselves just how difficult it would be to organize all these little capitalists and how can we be sure they are all earning minimum wages? So many questions, so few answers! Larry Bennett, Burnaby

Anti-Semitism: Please speak out continued from page 6

dehumanizing and vicious. And when anyone witnesses an act of anti-Semitism they should rightly call it out. I appreciate that many letter writers felt obligated to call our editorial antiSemitic. I don’t agree with that

assessment. But, frankly, I would rather have allies of Jews erring on the side of speaking out against what they viewed as an antiSemitic statement, than not speaking out or writing. Whatever you may agree with or disagree with, it is, in my opin-

ion, better to share your thoughts. That is, after all, what the editorial was all about: freedom to speak and criticize and, hopefully, do so without fear of prosecution or persecution. Pat Tracy is the editor of the Burnaby NOW and Record newspapers.

New digs: Top: School board chair Diana Mumford leads Education Minister

George Abbott, followed by Mayor Derek Corrigan, into the opening ceremonies for the new University Highlands Elementary School (above).

New school opens

Teachers, parents and politicians gathered on Burnaby Mountain this past Tuesday to celebrate the official opening of the city’s newest school. University Highlands Elementary was up and running this September and has close to 170 students enrolled so far. The school is a key part of UniverCity, a development by Simon Fraser University designed that’s to be self-sufficient and environmentally sustainable. School board chair Diana Mumford said the celebration was delightful. “The highlight was all the students at University Highlands singing their school song. They sang it with enthusiasm, energy and great pride,” she said.

George Abbott, the new education minister, was at the opening, as was local MLA Harry Bloy. The school’s parent advisory council is also hoping to get some money for a playground through the Aviva Community Fund, an online contest where the public votes for their favourite community projects to go before a judges’ panel that decides who gets to split $1 million in funding. Right now, the school has an empty lot where a playground should be and no money to build one. To see or vote on the school’s playground idea, go to www.avivacommunity – Jennifer Moreau

Local heroes awarded Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Mayor Derek Corrigan and Coun. Pietro Calendino handed out 10 Local Hero Awards at Monday night’s meeting. The certificates of recognition for the 14th annual civic hero awards were presented to residents of Burnaby who have devoted time and energy to their community, often through their volunteer efforts. The list includes Ray Allen, chair of the Southeast District Community Police Advisory; Jonathan Van Aggelen, who was an avid volunteer in high school in Burnaby; Elsie Dean, a founding member of the Task Force of the Voices of Burnaby Seniors; David Gates, a Block Watch captain for more than 25 years; and Shirley Hill, who has volunteered at Burnaby Hospital for more than 10 years. The others are Darlene James; one of the original community school coordinators; Carole Kaye, who has volunteered with Citizen Support Services since 2003; Kathy Tietjen, who has volunteered at the Burnaby Village Museum for 22 years; Tony Tsang, who has volunteered with a number of organizations since moving to Burnaby in 1992, including the Burnaby Mountain Mantas Swim Club; and Violet Zaytsoff, a volunteer facilitator with the Roots of Empathy program in the Burnaby School District.

Kitchener Street traffic woes

A Burnaby man made

his third appearance at council on Monday night because of traffic issues in his neighbourhood. Roy Hunter lives in the 3900-block of Kitchener Street, in one of the last homes in a light industrial zoning area, and says that traffic from a construction business across the street is blocking his driveway. Hunter first spoke about the issue in October 2006 and spoke at council about another industrial business across from him creating traffic issues in 2002. Trucks and other vehicles park in front of his home, across from the construction business, Wm. P. Somerville, Ltd., he said. The most recent issues have taken place since 2007, he added. Mayor Derek Corrigan mentioned that bylaw enforcement has been stepped up in the area, but Hunter said that hasn’t helped. He mentioned two specific altercations with people on his property because of the traffic issues, saying he fears for his safety. Corrigan asked that Hunter make an appointment to see him at his office if the problem continues, so they can work on a solution.

Non-profits get lease grants

Non-profitorganizations will continue to receive lease grants for 2011 at the city’s community resource centres. Groups providing programs and services where the recipients are at least 75 per cent Burnaby residents can receive lease grants

that cover up to 50 per cent of lease costs. Those with programs serving 25 to 50 per cent Burnaby residents can have lease costs cut by 75 per cent. The organizations at Edmonds Neighbourhood Resource Centre that will receive lease grants for 2011 include the Burnaby Family Life Institute, Deaf Children’s Society of B.C., St. Matthew’s Day Care Society and six other groups. Those at Holdom Community Resource Centre that are receiving the lease cuts are Burnaby Family Life Institute, Dixon Transition Society, Burnaby Seniors Outreach Services Society, Volunteer Burnaby and Burnaby Community Connections. The lease grants come to more than $116,000, offsetting an average of 44 per cent of lease costs for the organizations.

Public hearing on rezoning

Council has approved plans for rezoning a fourstorey mixed-use development project on Hastings Street, east of Willingdon Avenue, to be brought to a public hearing. The plan, put forward by Altezza Development Ltd., for 4702 Hastings St. falls under the extended Hastings Street Area Plan, which was adjusted to include the area between Willingdon Avenue and Delta Avenue in 2008. The building would include ground-level retail spaces and residential units in the other three storeys. The application will go to a public hearing at city hall on Tuesday, Dec. 14.

Vision for the future: Alain Ndayishimiye, a business student from Burundi, and Delphine Umutoni, a health science student originally from Rwanda, are both studying at Simon Fraser University thanks to the World University Service of Canada’s student refugee program.

Opening the door to a new world African students get a chance to study in Burnaby thanks to a World University Service of Canada program Alfie Lau

staff reporter

Alain Ndayishimiye and Delphine Umutoni know how fortunate they are to be breathing the fresh air of Burnaby Mountain. Ndayishimiye, 21, is a third-year business student at Simon Fraser University, while Umutoni, 22, is a second-year health sciences student. What makes their stories so amazing is the fact they are able to further their education through the World University Service of Canada’s student refugee program. The program enables students to pursue their dreams of a post-secondary education by covering their costs for a minimum of one year. In the case of Ndayishimiye and Umutoni, they each received two-year sponsorships, with Ndayishimiye having already completed his sponsorship and now supporting himself and Umutoni just entering her second year of sponsorship.

“I’m originally from Rwanda,” said Umutoni. “My family fled to Kenya during the civil war, and we stayed there in a refugee camp for 12 years. … We then went to Malawi, staying in a refugee camp there for three years.” It was during her time in Malawi that Umutoni saw an ad for the student refugee program. “I was one of 256 individuals who applied and then one of 63 people chosen for an interview,” said Umutoni. Of the 15 people ultimately chosen for the program from her pool of applicants, Umutoni was one of only two women chosen. “I was really shocked when I found out,” she said. “The only things I knew about B.C. were what I’d read in a book.” When she arrived in the summer of 2009, Umutoni got her first dose of culture shock. “The biggest adjustment for me was when I got on the bus and everybody was so friendly. I thought it was a bit fishy, but the more I got exposed to it, the more I saw how friendly everybody was,” she said. Umutoni, who has plans to go to nursing school in the future, said she cherishes the opportunity to live and study in a world so far away from her homeland. “Sure, I get a little homesick, but this

Helping students This year, 67 former refugee students will be attending close to 50 Canadian universities and colleges, including Simon Fraser University, through the World University Service of Canada’s student refugee program. Many of these students have fled their country of origin to refugee camps in Kenya and Malawi because of political unrest and in order to escape violence and persecution. As a result, their lives are put on hold as they have little to no employment opportunities or access to higher education. The program enables these young men and women to resettle in Canada as permanent residents and pursue their dreams for the future by providing them with a post-secondary education. The service’s student-led local committees on campus sponsor the students and cover all their costs for a minimum of one year. The service and its overseas partners are responsible for selecting refugee candidates, placing them at a Canadian postsecondary institution and providing training and guidance to the sponsored students and local committees throughout the sponsoring process. For more than 30 years, the program has been helping students escape the camps and resettle in Canada. To date, more than 1,100 students have been sponsored from various refugee camps. The World University Service of Canada is a network of individuals and post-secondary institutions that believe that all peoples are entitled to the knowledge and skills necessary to contribute to a more

equitable world. Their mission is to foster human development and global understanding through education and training. The service’s development projects in the Balkans, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Haiti, Malawi, Peru, Sri Lanka and Vietnam deliver meaningful results in: ◆ Education and health, including basic and higher education, water and sanitation, and HIV and AIDS. ◆ Sustainable livelihoods, including vocational training and agriculture/rural development. ◆ Governance, including strengthening civil society, promoting human rights and peace building. The student refugee program is part of the service’s ongoing work on Canadian campuses, which also includes: ◆ More than 70 local committees ◆ Uniterra, which mobilizes students to help achieve the millennium development goals through education, advocacy and volunteering. ◆ Overseas learning opportunities including an international seminar and Students Without Borders, an innovative program that enables students to apply their academic knowledge to a work environment in the developing world while, in most cases, earning credits. ◆ Fostering global citizenship by encouraging students to become more aware of development issues and their own power. From alleviating poverty to fighting HIV and AIDS to promoting fair trade, the service believes they can change the world through advocacy and action.

“I’m so grateful to Canada for everything here, but you can’t avoid being homesick.” Umutoni said that prior to coming to SFU, she had been working in a health department clinic, treating AIDS and HIV patients, and she sees herself doing more of that if she goes back to Africa. Living in Canada, far away from home, has been an unforgettable experience for both Ndayishimiye and Umutoni. “I remember, in my last year of sponsorship, I was worried about how I would support myself, but with some planning, it all worked out,” said Ndayishimiye. “If I have any advice for Delphine, it’s that you shouldn’t stress yourself out, concentrate on your schoolwork, and the rest will work itself out.” Umutoni takes the advice with a hearty laugh. “It’s good to know it’s OK to be a little worried,” she said. “I wasn’t too worried in my first year because I went to board-

ing school (during high school), but now, when you have to support yourself, you have to think about everything.” Ndayishimiye and Umutoni would love to continue talking, but class beckons, giving them just enough time to admit what their favourite uniquely Canadian foods are. “I love maple syrup,” said Umutoni. “I remember the first time seeing it on a table at breakfast and thinking it was some strange type of water and honey. … And then I tasted it, and I really love it.” “Tim Hortons coffee, I’m addicted,” said Ndayishimiye. “I didn’t like it at first, I thought it was too strong, but now I need to have it.” Spoken like true Canadians.

Find mindfulness through meditation HEALTHWISE


Dr. Davidicus Wong

learned to meditate in the most unlikely of places. In the bathroom I shared with my older brother, I would find the most interesting reading material. It was there that I became fascinated with the human mind thanks to his Psych 101 textbook. For several months, he left a book on meditation. So that’s where I began my journey to master my mind and my emotions – not in a temple, a Zen garden or an ashram, but in the cold green-tiled bathroom of our basement. I learned that I could find refuge from the anxieties of my teens and learn to tame the torrent of difficult emotions without drugs or alcohol. I learned that though I had no control over most of the

circumstances of my life, I could choose how I would react to them. I learned that real peace cannot be found lying in the sun on a faraway beach, and real happiness is not a future time when everything is perfect. Meditation is challenging to define as it encompasses differing practices among many cultures throughout history. It is used by many to manage stress and anxiety. It is used by others as a spiritual discipline to find meaning in their lives. It can be a mental or spiritual practice in which the practitioner intentionally focuses attention on either an object, an image or an idea. In such concentration meditation, the attention may be centred on the portrait of a saint or guru, an image in one’s mind’s eye or on an idea, such as peace, happiness or light. Alternatively, as in the case of mindfulness meditation, the focus of concentration is the authentic observations, thoughts and feelings that enter one’s

awareness in the present moment. With diligent practice, mindfulness can give depth, breadth and meaning to the moments of each day, and with experience, one can live more deliberately. So what is the value of meditation, and how is this different from our usual mental states? After all, aren’t we already in control of our thoughts and our actions? If you think you are, meditate a moment on that question. The opposite of mindfulness is mindlessness, in which our monkey minds jump from one thought to another, from the past to the future, and from emotion to emotion. Your usual mental state may be reactive – reacting to the urgency of the moment, unresolved sadness or anger about the past, or anxiety about the future. When you first attempt to focus your attention on a single object, you discover how cluttered your consciousness is – with stray thoughts darting in

New clubhouse under construction at Riverway

The new clubhouse at the Riverway Golf Course should be completed by February 2011, according to a report from the finance and civic development committee. Bird Construction Ltd. began construction in December of 2009. The clubhouse building is an 11,500square-foot single storey structure containing a restaurant/bar/grill and banquet facilities capable of accommodating up to 225 guests. The interior spaces connect to the outdoor patio decks, which can accommodate an additional 100 guests. The contractor has been working over the summer months to bring the building to the lockup stage before the winter

weather arrives, the report stated. The exterior building elements of the new clubhouse include a metal roof, aluminum windows, vertical board and batten siding and exposed columns and beams that form the main structural elements of the building. These materials and features are in keeping with the design and architecture that has been established by the existing buildings previously constructed on the site. The majority of work has been completed over the past few weeks. The project is proceeding on budget and staff will continue to monitor the construction progress, according to the report. – Janaya Fuller-Evans

Under the mistletoe: The Good Lovelies – Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore – perform at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts on Dec. 4.

Good Lovelies take to the stage at Shadbolt The Shadbolt Centre’s Lounge Series is getting an injection of holiday spirit when the Good Lovelies take the stage on Dec. 4. The Good Lovelies – Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore – are best friends and former solo artists who came together in 2006 and won the 2010 Juno Award for Roots Album of the Year. Since forming, the three have quit their day jobs, toured coast to coast multiple times, performed numerous concerts, festivals, folk clubs and coffee houses and released three albums. In March, the Toronto-based trio finished touring with the Vinyl Café and lent their backup talents to Jill Barber’s album Chances. “Sharp, sassy and building a following across North America, these three women

are the perfect antidote at a time when too many of us are affected by gloom, doom and recovering from recession,” says a press release about the trio. Their music, described as western swing and folk-roots, relies on three part harmonies and clever songs – plus onstage repartee. Their performance is set for 8 p.m. in the Studio Theatre, and tickets are $30. Call 604-205-3000 or see www.shadbolt The Good Lovelies’ performance is part of the Shadbolt’s Lounge Series, which offers a lineup of musical performers in a cabaret setting. It kicked off with the Marc Atkinson Trio on Nov. 20, and continues with the banjo-and-ukulele duo Spring Breakup in February, followed by cellist Kevin Fox in 2011.

Musicals in Concert is presenting the rarely performed 1927 musical Good News, a production set in the Roaring ‘20s – when women have won the right to vote and college campuses, such as fictional Tait College, are a happening social scene. The story follows star football player Tom Marlowe and studious part-time school librarian Connie Lane – and the inevitable ups and downs of their unlikely romance. Applause is presenting a 1993 revision of the play, written in 1993 by Mark Madama and Wayne Bryan. The musical features the talents of Burnaby’s own Hal Rogers – who stepped in at the 11th hour with only four rehearsals left before the first performance. Hal, who’s

20, is currently studying theatre at the University of Alberta and has a number of productions to his credit, including Fighting Chance Productions’ Hair, and Rent with Two ONEWAY Tickets To Broadway Productions. He’s joined by Michael Brock, Peter Cameron, Caitlin Clugston, Jennifer Doan, Steve Dotto, Cesar Erba, Nick Fontaine, Amy Hack, Matt Hume, Damon Jang, Daniel Johnston, Christopher King, Lauren Kramm, Chris Lam, Danielle Lemon, Morgan McTaggart, Amos Mitchell, Jaclyn Nestman, Bryan Nothling, Erin Palm, Matthew Parsons, Jennifer Suratos and Lyndsay Wallace. Good News is on at CBC Studio 700, 700 Hamilton St. in Vancouver. It’s directed by Cathy Wilmot, with music direction by Caitlin Hayes and movement coaching by Dawn Ewen. It’s on at 2 and 8 p.m. today (Saturday). For tickets, see www.

o you have a Chevette or an older Cavalier in your past car ownership history (most of us do) and perhaps a few not-so-fond memories to go with them? Even GM admits that maybe its older compact car creations weren’t the best – but the new Chevrolet Cruze is very different. Kevin Williams, new president and managing director of GM Canada, points to the hot-selling Chevrolet Equinox, the GMC Terrain, the Buick Regal and Buick

in November and at no extra charge, we’ll include

LeCrosse as product examples of the new GM. “These are proof points that GM can deliver … something that we haven’t always delivered on in the past,” conceded Williams. No longer concerned about being No. 1 in the market place, the focus of the new GM is on having sustainable profitable growth. “No more chasing market share, with incentives or unprofitable fleet business,” said Williams. “If we are number 2, but profitable – we are comfortable with that.

Chevrolet: New Cruze is roomy and stylish continued from page 27

The core vision of the new GM is designing, building the world’s best vehicles.” While Cruze is new to Canada, it’s actually a proven product that’s already sold in 60 countries around the world. Near-mid-size interior dimensions make the Cruze the roomiest car in its class, and it comes with two new high-efficiency engines that allow it to offer impressively frugal fuel economy numbers. Overall fit and finish is also on par with the best in this market sector, and particularly impressive is the level of exterior noise suppression. Although GM was not able to supply any comparison numbers (to my surprise), cabin quietness would get my vote for best in class and as good as some far more expensive vehicles. Cruze also offers segment-leading passive safety features with 10 standard airbags, which is four more than generally considered the norm. Two extra airbags are built into its rear seat, protecting the outboard seating positions, plus it has front seat knee bolster bags that both protect and help to correctly position the front

seat occupants in a collision. It’s the first passenger car to receive maximum scores (for occupant protection) in both the European frontal offset collision and the sideimpact crash (against a moving deformable barrier) tests. The European New Car Assessment Program (EuroNCAP) has been providing crash test ratings since 1997. The base engine in the Cruze, a 1.8-litre, four-cylinder (LS trim), and its optional 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder (LT and LTZ trim) produce an identical (138) maximum horsepower number. The performance difference is in the higher torque output (148 lb.-ft.) of the turbo engine and the lower engine speed (1,850 r.p.m.) at which it’s provided. The 1.4-litre’s turbocharger is a unique design that’s incorporated into the exhaust manifold as a single component. This saves weight, helps the engine to warm up faster and reduces exhaust emissions. Both engines run on regular gas and come with six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmissions. In addition to more power at low engine


speeds, the turbo engine also provides better fuel economy. There’s a delayed release on the turbo/manual combination, which will come as a Cruze Eco edition with a special wheel and aero package and it’s expected to achieve a 5.0-litre/100 km highway fuel economy rating. The Cruze comes in four trim levels, LS, Eco, LT and LTZ. In addition to the stuff already mentioned, the base (LS) edition comes with electronic stability control, power windows and locks, remote entry and audio input jacks. The top-line LTZ includes leather (front heated) seats, a 17-inch wheel package, rear park assist and climate control air conditioning. The LT trim line is expected to account for 70 per cent of sales, and there’s an extra bonus if you order a Cruze before next Jan. 10. A “first to Cruze” program gives you the choice of a free set of winter tires or an Apple IPad with OnStar MyLink Apps installed. GM is listening to customers a lot differently than in the past, according to Williams. And the Chevrolet Cruze design team engineers sure did their homework.

Where’s the leak coming from? CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: A few years ago, our 1998 Camry started to leak water inside. This is a problem in Oregon, so we took it in for repair, and, $500 later, they told us that they cleared the “weep channels” in the sunroof. Evidently, debris from parking under various trees gets into the weep channels and clogs it up, thus creating some kind of backflow that then pours and drips onto the floor of the car. Now, five years later, it’s leaking again (even though we’ve been covering the car with a cover in leafy weather). I have this idea that we can clear the channels ourselves but am unsure of exactly how to do it. We tried opening the hood, clearing out the debris

and spraying water full-force into the holes near the outside edges of the hood. It helped for a few days, but then, of course, it rained again (and again and again – this is Oregon), and it began leaking again. Is there some other access to the weep channels? Can I get to it with an air compressor or a hose to clear it? In the meantime, I am air-drying the car, trying to keep mould from forming. Help! – Annah TOM: Well, before you bone up on your drainblowing-out skills, Annah, you want to be sure that it’s actually the sunroof that’s leaking. RAY: Right. In our experience, leaks like this are much more likely to be coming from a bad windshield seal. TOM: So start by taking a roll of duct tape (it comes in many exciting colors these days) and taping the seams of the sunroof shut. That’ll keep any new water from getting in there. If, after a few days or a week, you continue to get water

in the car, then you know it’s not coming from the sunroof. RAY: If, on the other hand, the car does dry out, then you either can leave the duct tape in place (which is what my brother would do), or you can try cleaning out the drains. TOM: There are two drains on this car, and they run from the sunroof down each of the A pillars (the vertical pillars between the windshield and the front doors), and then empty out behind the front tires. RAY: If you open the sunroof and slowly pour a cup of water in there (not into the open hole, but into the channel that surrounds the opening of the sunroof), you should be able to see if the water is draining out of there freely. TOM: If it’s not, check for debris in the pan where the water collects. Removing the debris may do the trick. RAY: If there’s no visible debris in that pan, the debris may be further downstream, in the rubber

tubes that carry the water to the ground. I wouldn’t blow compressed air in there, because you may blow the tube right off. TOM: So if you haven’t done that already, Annah, take a thin piece of wire, like mechanic’s wire, and try working it down the tube and pushing out any debris that way. Then test it again with some water. RAY: If the tube itself has become disconnected – on its own, or due to Hurricane Annah’s compressed-air hose – then you may have to call in professional help. That requires pulling down the car’s headliner. Which actually isn’t very hard. No. But getting it back up is. And if you don’t want it to be sagging down onto your head and giving you bad-hair days forever after, it’s best to let a professional handle that job. Good luck. Got a question about cars?

Swim team more important than self Tom Berridge

sports editor

ForAlexandraSchofield, winning the Burnaby district’s only gold medal at the B.C. high school swim championships took a second place to what it took to just get there. The17-year-oldBurnaby Mountain Secondary student and Simon Fraser Aquatics club swimmer expected to be on the podium following the open girls’ 100-metre butterfly final. Schofield took first place in the event in a winning time of 1:03.54, nearly two seconds ahead of the next fastest swimmer. She also made final swims in the open freestyle and backstroke races at the provincials held in Nanaimo, coming fourth and fifth, respectively. But perhaps more important to Schofield were the results of her two Mountain teammates Cristian Cristurean and David Pinksy. The two Grade 9 Mountain students made up the other half of the Mountain swim team. Cristurean made the consolation finals in the open boys’ freestyle and individual medley. Pinsky was a consolation finalist in the 100m breaststroke.

Burnaby teams seventh at B.C. qualifier Tom Berridge

sports editor

Contributed photo/burnaby now

Come fly with me: Burnaby Mountain senior Alexandra Schofield got a swim team going at her school just in time for the provincials. Now, she’s determined to keep it going. It was with a school team in mind that Schofield undertook the job to organize the group in time for the provincials. “I really wanted there to be a high school swim team. I always thought it was ridiculous that we had a swim academy but no swim team,” she said. Schofield decided to do something about it, but it took much longer than she had anticipated. “It wasn’t hard to get

the swimmers on board, but it was harder to get the teachers. That was difficult,” Schofield said. She found, without the help of an in-school sponsor, getting information and the necessary forms from B.C. School Sports was also a bit stressful. She succeeded in getting all the paperwork done just one week before the actual provincial qualifying meet was to be held. Now that Schofield suc-

ceeded in creating a swim team at Mountain, she is not about to let it become a one-year wonder. Schofield recently committed to the Simon Fraser University swim team next year and the close proximity of the two schools has her already formulating plans. “I really hope they have a swim team next year,” Schofield said. “It would be good for the school, I think. Next year, I might

come down and visit, and make sure they get on their horse. I’ll help out.” She notes the experience of racing against much older swimmers should benefit both Cristurean and Pinsky.

Knights to make eighth straight AA appearance Tom Berridge sports editor

St. Thomas More qualified for the B.C. high school AA girls’ volleyball championships for the eighth consecutive year. The senior Knights qualified following a second-place finish to St. Thomas Aquinas at the recent Lower Mainland championships.

STM lost just one league game all season to rival St. Patricks, but avenged the defeat in the league playoffs, downing the Vancouver independent on their home court. The Knights are led by four seniors, including Team B.C. alternate Pamela Ho, Sarah Hughes, Charmaine Amaba and Claire Power. “It (makes a difference). It total-

ly does,” said STM head coach Danielle Bohmeier of her seniors. “I have (a top finish) in my sights. We want to come top three.” The fact the Lower Mainland independent champs have not competed in many weekend tournaments this season might be an advantage, Bohemier added. “We’re going into the provincials where the rankings have us

at eighth. We’re coming in under the radar, a silent team. I hope the girls really show up. We should do well,” she said. “I have high hopes.” STM’s best-ever finish at the high school provincials was a third-place finish in 2006. The AA provincials will be held at Sa-Hali high school in Kamloops Dec. 1 to 4.

Seven proved an unlucky number for both the Burnaby North Vikings and Burnaby Central Wildcats quad A girls’ volleyball teams. Both North and Central finished the Lower Mainland AAAA volleyball championships in a tie for seventh place following defeats on the final day of the double-knockout provincial qualifying tournament at McRoberts Secondary in Richmond Saturday. The Vikings took West Vancouver to a tiebreaker in their final game before dropping a 12-25, 25-15, 15-9 decision to the North Shore wild-card winner. Central, No. 3 finishers in Pool B, had its moments but eventually fell in straight sets to Point Grey 25-18, 25-17. The Wildcats drew even at 18-18 on a Xhalida September service run in the opening game but could get no closer. In the second set, Point Grey shook off a 7-7 deadlock with a mini six-point streak midway through the match. “They’re just young. That’s all it comes down to,” said Central head coach Sharon Snow. “It sets them up for next year. They’ll think about this. They’ll get it next year.” Central moved into the championship round Volley Page 43

CAREER COACH Technology Careers

Last week was Technology Careers Week promoting careers in technology, science and engineering. Here are a couple of good websites to help you explore careers and job opportunities in technology. BC Work Futures for Trades & Technical Occupations: Gregg Taylor This is a relatively new and updated site with career information specific to BC (search ‘technology’or ‘trades’ in the “Search Profiles” box on the home page). There are dozens of profiles of trade and technical occupations. In these profiles you'll get a sense of what the work is like, where training is available and what employment prospects look like for these occupations in the immediate future. Applied Science Technologists & Technicians of BC’s TechWorks: Check out the 23 career profiles on this association website. Recently updated profiles include: Biological Sciences Technology, Biomedical Engineering Technology, Building Design, Building Technology, Chemical Technology, Civil Technology, Construction Safety, Electrical Technology, Electronics Technology, Environmental Technology, Fire Protection, Forest Resources Technology, Gas & Petroleum Technology, Geomatics Technology, House & Property Inspection, Industrial Technology, Mechanical Technology, Metallurgical Technology, Mining Technology, Public Works Inspection, and Site Improvements Surveys. These websites provide information about growth careers in the technology sector. The challenge, of course, is knowing what career, job or sector is really the best fit for you. If you are unsure of your best career fit, call our office about career planning programs and services in your community. For help finding the work you love, call Transitions Career & Business Consultants, coordinators of The Transitions Program, a free 3 week career exploration program available to all unemployed people at 604-434-1177 or 604-681-2774

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Intellectual pursuits have top priority. That includes cultural, far travel, educational, publishing, advertising, religious, philosophical and legal affairs. These might run into a couple of unexpected glitches or shocks early and deep into this week, so time your actions for Dec. 4 onward. Government agencies, or your own “background” might be involved. Dive into chores Sunday/Monday, so you’ll have more time when opportunities and exciting emotional prospects appear (Tuesday/Wednesday). Depths, mysteries, sex, other people’s money Friday/Saturday: you might hit a mother lode! Taurus April 20-May 20: Life’s mysteries, research, depth psychology, subconscious desires, lust, finances tied to other people (e.g., stocks, marriage finances, inheritances) rise in importance. These might be imperilled this week, especially if you began a related venture in November. You might need to take quick “crisis action” Thursday/Friday. Or, you could be free of any problems – if so, wait until Saturday onward to plunge into these areas, and/or to make a commitment, change your lifestyle, or invest. Work succeeds midweek. Friendships, loves (and everything listed above) are lucky Friday p.m.! Gemini May 21-June 20: Excitement! You could take major steps in a romance or more mature relationship now, or you might face and seize a huge opportunity such as relocation, a public appearance, a business negotiation/contract. But be aware: you might succeed, and the payment is stress. Or it all might blow up (Sunday-Tuesday a.m. or Thursday/Saturday) especially if this situation began in November. But if it blows up: so what? It clears away six years of tension, liberates you – laugh at life! Midweek’s romantic. Saturday begins, small but growing, the workable opportunities, attractions. Optimism arrives!

Cancer June 21-July 22: Emotionally, a rest period is over. Now you begin two months of intensified, active, communicating, sweet (and sometimes angry, or more likely, competitive) attraction. But don’t lose sight of your main necessity for the next three weeks: work and health. These two – and your dependents, and machinery – face one or two crises or dilemmas this week (Sunday-Tuesday and Thursday/Friday). Be very careful with electricity, computers, driving, tools, especially late week. A project might demand precise, tense attention to complete: give this, and succeed. Romance whispers Thursday/Friday! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: What seemed so romantically alluring in November might meet unexpected events or sexual reactions. Or, speculation and investment quality conflict; or creative urges, projects might trip over the realities that research discovers. Whatever went so brilliantly in November meets the unexpected by Thursday. Leo, whatever happens: 1) be ethical, honest; 2) be alert, realistic. These should show you the right way. Money needs care Sunday/ Monday. Communications, travel, life’s easy Tuesday/ Wednesday. Home, safety, take no chances Thursday! Friday heals. Saturday, love, success begin. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: I warned you some weeks ago that domestic, property, security and family projects (especially those initiated in November) might hit a shock or snag by this week. It could be a crisis, or simply a snag that needs ironing out. Be patient, diplomatic. Sunday/Monday your energy is high, but everyone seems independent, ready for an argument. Thursday/Friday communications, errands flow swiftly, but an unexpected event could capsize the apple cart. Drive carefully Friday dawn, avoid unsafe tools, avoid computers. Friday p.m., love/ friendship luck! After a hectic week, relax at home Saturday.

Continues on next page ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The main emphasis lies on communications, paperwork, errands, travel, siblings and casual friends. These areas face one or two challenges this week, especially Sunday/Monday (philosophical or legal differences?) and Thursday/ Friday (romantic, creative conflicts?). In everything (communication, travel, etc.) your intention is all tied up with a partnership urge – but it is this urge that is really causing unexpected events or disagreements. Somehow, it (the urge to join or merge) is fighting the work you need to get done. By Friday p.m., the conflict’s over, and money luck flows! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Unexpected events could throw a monkey wrench into your money projects, particularly any projects you began in November, especially Sunday/Monday and Thursday/Friday. Do NOT purchase machinery or high tech items before Friday noon. The problem comes from your desire, hidden or not, to seek pleasure, romance, adventure or to take a gamble. You might face a choice: chase romance, or guard your money, gamble or keep your bank account, etc. Despite events, you’ll be optimistic, happy Sunday/Monday! Rest, contemplate mid-week. Your energy, charisma soar Thursday/Friday – this eve’s lucky! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Watch your temper – you’re riding a wave of energy, charisma, hope, loving emotions and creative, gambling pizzazz – but this could make you impatient, too, especially with parents/kids, domestic situations, real estate, security provisions. These have caused you stress and tension for seven years, and you’re at the fed-up stage! So there might be one last explosion, especially Sunday/ Monday or Thursday/Friday. Listen: be safe, but don’t repress your temper. Have a tantrum, then look for common ground. You’ll find it Friday eve, successfully start to implement it Saturday onward.

Nov. 28 - Dec. 4 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Messages, information (or distribution realities) might interfere with a plan that involved government, an institution, or a “retreat.” Protect yourself from gossip. Take care in writing, speech, driving and with electrical tools. The most “accident prone days are Sunday, Monday and Friday (morning). This is a time of rest, solitude, peace and contemplation – seek an environment that promotes these. That said, your social popularity begins to revive, and you grow more talkative, more interested in wisdom and learning. Complete obligations. Happiness, optimism visit Friday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A conflict between your hopes and your “available cash” might reach a climax this week, especially Sunday/Monday and Thursday/ Friday. Well, reality is reality, you gotta work with what you have. Once you accept this, you can start achieving, and your hopes will rise. In general, your popularity is rising, light romance visits, and your money picture does keep getting better! Bosses, VIPs and parents favour you again, into January – take advantage (especially Friday!). Tackle governmentrelated chores now, as a slow-down will commence here soon. Love, Tuesday/Wednesday, Saturday! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Relationships need patience, gentleness early week. A temperamental boss, parent or VIP could act now, especially Sunday to Tuesday (argument) and Thursday/Friday (sudden action). Be alert, good-natured, diplomatic – deflect attacks. (A VIP’s motive? Perhaps a suspicion that you are money-hungry. Deeper, it’s a power struggle.) Wisdom, gentle love, and a travel, legal or educational project return, lasting to early January. These are lucky Friday p.m. Friends begin to appear. Still, your main December goal is career, ambition. Secrets, revelations, “major money” Tuesday/Wednesday. • Reading: 416-686-5014

Women fifth at NAIA nationals

Difficult weather conditions left Simon Fraser University’s women’s team in fifth place at the NAIA national cross-country championships last Saturday. The Clan was led by regional champion Helen Crofts, who placed 10th overall finishing the fivekilometre Vancouver, Washington course in a time of 18:15. Crofts was named an NAIA All-American and academic All-American after the meet. Jessica Smith, who was unbeaten in four previous races this season, finished in 18th spot in 18:21. Smith had not raced in more than a month due to injury. Smith was named an All-American as well as SFU’s champion of character athlete.

Sarah Sawatzky placed 52nd overall, while Lindsey Butterworth and Brianna Kane rounded out SFU’s point-scoring team runners. SFU garnered 177 points. California State San Marcos won the overall women’s title with 88 points. It was the school’s second consecutive national women’s cross-country title. Keir Forster had the best time for the Clan men, finishing well back in the pack in a time of 27:13. Ryan Brockerville did not complete the race. Southern Oregon won its first-ever national men’s title, beating out runnerup Wayland Baptist by 19 points. Three-time defending NAIA champion Malone University finished third overall.

Panther pots a pair Michael Santorelli was named a first star for the Florida Panthers following a 4-1 victory over the New York Islanders last Saturday. The former sixth round draft pick of the Nashville Predators scored his fifth and sixth goal this season in a four-goal second period.

Wildcats midget girls’ hockey team leads a rush up ice against Richmond at the Hayley Wickenheiser International women’s hockey festival at 8Rinks last weekend.

Scoring Devil moves up Burnaby’s Marco Finucci climbed the Pacific International Junior Hockey League scoring ladder with a six-point weekend. Finucci sparked the North Delta Devils to a 6-5 win over Abbotsford Nov. 19, scoring two goals and adding two assists. A day later, the 19-year-old had a two-point night, including the game-tying goal in an eventual 4-3 shootout loss to the Richmond Sockeyes.

MetroPlace. High rise, high style in Burnaby. One and two bedroom homes, with or without den.

Karter Remo Ruscitti is taking his next big step in the world of four-wheel racing. The 16-year-old Notre Dame student will be one of approximately 40 upand-coming young drivers vying for a full racing scholarship at the 13th annual Skip Barber scholarship shootout at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in California from Dec. 3 to 6. The lucky winners will come away with a full season of racing in the Skip Barber National Formula 2000 series. Regardless of the outcome, Ruscitti believes he has enough sponsorship to run a limited number of races on the Formula 2000 circuit next season. “It looks like it’s getting

bigger and better,” said father Giovanni Ruscitti. Last Week, the younger Ruscitti finished in sixth place in the highly competitive senior class at the USA SuperNationals XIV karting championship in Las Vegas that drew the likes of professional drivers such as Indy 500 winner Dan Wheldon. ItalianMotorsteammanager and coach, Michael Valiante, a pro sports car driver on the Grand Am circuit, placed third ahead of Ruscitti in the 125 cc senior TaG (touch and go) class. Ruscitti, who qualified third overall behind Valiante and eventual winner Andre Nocastro in an all-Italian Motors sweep, placed second, fourth and fifth in three of his qualifying races at the supernationals.

Game star in first game Brian Stewart of Burnaby was named a second star in his first game with the Greenville Road Warriors of the East Coast Hockey League. Stewart made 32 saves in a 2-1 loss to the Gwinnett Gladiators on Nov. 21. He was sent down to Greenville from the Adirondack Phantoms in the American Hockey League on Nov. 19.

Highly desirable. MetroPlace is the latest in high-rise sophistication from architects Busby Perkins + Will and interior designers Insight Design Group. A real high point. Forty-six storeys high, MetroPlace will be a Burnaby landmark with 360º views of the city, the mountains and the inlet. Highly accessible. Metropolis at Metrotown, BC’s most comprehensive shopping experience, and the Skytrain are just across the street.

Swim: Staying close to home helps

Big numbers for sophomore Simon Fraser University women’s basketball team started the season with a pair of wins on the road in Oregon. Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe put up backto-back double-doubles in both games for the Clan. The SFU sophomore forward posted 25 points and 13 rebounds in the Clan’s 88-65 win over Southern Oregon University on Nov. 20. A day earlier, Raincock-Ekunwe had a monster night, scoring 24 points, while adding 12 boards, seven steals, five assists and three blocks in a 75-69

continued from page 33

Schofield has made senior national times in her specialty stroke, while also earning a spot on the provincial under-18 team. “I definitely learned through swimming that I don’t have everything. I had to learn it the hard way in my first year of winter swimming,” she said. “I don’t think I’m all that talented. The effort I put out comes through in my times.” And that is what she measures herself against. Just after her 14th birthday, she shocked many in attendance, placing third in the

win over Warner Pacific College in the season opener. Anna Carolsfeld also had big numbers, contributing 18 points and 11 rebounds, including six-of-seven from the floor and a perfect six-for-six at the charity stripe against Southern Oregon. In Portland, Kristina Collins finished the game with three three-pointers and 16 total points for SFU. New Westminster Secondary grad Kia Van Laare provided eight points in the win, including a pair of threes and two at the foul line.

100m fly at the age group nationals. Two years later, Schofield finally broke through a mental time barrier and made her senior standard in the fly. “As long as I’m getting better personally, I’m fine,” she added. “I just love swimming.” And that is the reason she chose to stay close to home after she graduates. “I have seen really talented swimmers just up and quit. It’s upsetting to watch. “Swimming has helped me realize and helped me stay relaxed, and helped me perform at school and swimming.” It seems like Schofield wants to keep it that way.

Clan cleans up in soccer Simon Fraser University sophomore defender Max Baessato was named the NAIA Association of Independent Institutions male soccer player of the year Nov. 22. Clan head coach Alan Koch was also named A.I.I. coach of the year. SFU also led the A.I.I. with seven first all-star team selections, Michael Winter, Roman Doutkevich, Josh Bennett, Hide Ozawa, Sang Hwang, Helge Neumann and Baessato. Senior Clan midfielder Lauren Lachlan was named female soccer player of the year for a second time.

The Clan women put seven players on regional all-star teams, including first teamers Jessica Fleming, Ari Adams, April Coffin and Lia Marining. Aly Benes and goalkeeper Amelia Ng were named to the second team.

Centre stage

SFU centre Kris Gluppe was named to the NAIA All-Independent football second team Nov. 23. Gluppe led the offensive unit that for four weeks led the Great Northwest Athletic Conference in rushing yardage this season.

The Simon Fraser University women’s wrestling team placed second at the Can-Am Open in North Dakota last weekend. Chloe Ivanoff, Laura Gordon and Jenna McClatchy all finished in second place in their respective weight classes, while Clan teammates DaphneAnne Hodgson, Tessa Mah, Justina DiStasio and Hillary Greening claimed third-place placements. The men beat Missouri Valley, Cumberland and Menlo colleges to improve its dual meet record to 5-0.

Volley: North kayoed by West Van continued from page 33

Saturday with a 2-1 upset over Pool D runner-up Kitsilano. North was equally unlucky. After a strong service streak from Lauryn Manson helped the Vikings build a seven-point lead, Grade 10 power hitter Layla Balooch finished off West Van with two service aces and a thundering kill. But the North Shore school elevated its game midway through the second set, outscoring the Vikes 13-3 to force the tiebreak. West Van moved on with a 15-9 deciding set. “The girls played really good in the first

set. They played well, they just were not right where they needed to be. We didn’t challenge them enough,” said North coach Moyra Ditchfield. A win against West Van would have pitted North in a rematch with Pool C runner-up Gladstone. North, which had won Pool D in the Nov. 17 preliminaries, lost to Gladstone 2-0 in a championship round match on the following Saturday. Burnaby Mountain and wild card #2, New Westminster, also qualified for the Lower Mainlands. Both schools were eliminated on the second day of competition.
