‘There is a lot that goes on that is hidden’
local social services agency wants the public to know that children and youth are being sexually exploited in Burnaby. “There is a lot that goes on that is hidden,” said Alison Grauer of St. Leonard’s Youth and Family Services, the main group working with Burnaby’s sexually exploited teens in Burnaby. There are an estimated 39 youth (13 to 18 years old) in Burnaby and New Westminster who are sexually exploited, and it’s not always through prostitution. Sexual exploitation of children and youth is defined as any sexual activity done in exchange for things, like money, drugs, ON MY BEAT food, clothing or shelJennifer Moreau ter. It can range from a youth who is giving up sex for alcohol or drugs or to the truly entrenched who are trafficked or pimped. “A lot of young people may not see themselves as being exploited, even if they are given alcohol at a party for sex,” Grauer said, adding the organization has worked with sexually exploited kids as young as 11 and 12. With the advent of the Internet, street prostitution is becoming less visible, Grauer pointed out. “Years ago, there was a stroll of youth working on Kingsway. That’s not really there anymore. I think it’s really underground with Craigslist,” she said. “You’ve got youth definitely underage, posting sex for money and claiming to be older than they are, leaving phone numbers, sometimes shadowy photos – never a face. And it’s really hard to track what’s happening there.” Sometimes the pimps move the girls around a lot, Grauer added. “We had one young person who explained to us that there were these different houses the pimp was keeping her at all over the Lower Mainland,” she said. Online sexual exploitation often happens through Craigslist, MSN, live video chats, Facebook and F**kbook (which is like a sexually explicit version of

Facebook). Public pressure forced Craigslist to remove its erotic services sections in Canada recently, but the listings just appear elsewhere online. “You can’t sell dogs on Craigslist, but you can sell people,” said Kelly Teague, an outreach worker with St. Leonard’s. She’s the only one solely dedicated to working with sexually exploited youth in Burnaby. “It’s not prostitution. It’s not just standing on the street,” Teague said. “It’s kids having sex for food, for shelter, for clothes, for their basic needs.” Teague said the majority of sexually exploited youth she works with do not have pimps.

“It’s usually the older guy inviting her to the party, in their early 20s, hanging out with the 14-year-olds,” she said. As for whether the problem in Burnaby is getting better or worse, Teague said it’s hard to quantify. “It’s an issue that’s never going to go away,” she said. Teague wants the public to stop seeing sexually exploited youth as promiscuous. “It’s child abuse,” she said. “They are not just slutting around. These are very vulnerable children. They have a story, they’re kids, and they need their community to watch out and take care of them.” Staff Sgt.-Maj. John Buis has been working with the Burnaby RCMP for nearly 20
years. He first noticed an open sex trade on Kingsway between Royal Oak and Willingdon in 1986, but young girls were a small percentage then. Buis still sees workers on Kingsway, but the numbers are dwindling, either because of police work or the Internet. “I’ve never seen a stroll for underage girls,” he said. “It’s difficult and almost impossible to arrest people for that. Walking along the street is not a crime.” The sexual exploitation of youth and children is not something police often deal with, Buis said, but when they do, officers Youth Page 9

MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Giving is built in at Burnaby workplace Alfie Lau
ach Thursday, Ross Yalung has an interesting way of spending his lunch hour. Yalung, a project technologist for B.C. Housing, which administers housing programs throughout the province, goes to Maywood Community School and spends an hour as a Big Brother to nine-year-old Matthew Orduyo. “Last time, we played hockey, and we’re often doing something sporty,” said Yalung. “It’s a great way to give a little something back, and I do get to spend some time with a great kid.” Yalung’s effort is part of an in-school mentoring program at Maywood where volunteers are matched up with kids. And while the kids learn about responsibility and meeting goals, there’s a fair share of fun to be had as well. “It’s always pretty active when I’m with Matthew,” said Yalung. “I think it’s a good time for both of us.” Yalung’s volunteerism is but a small example of the culture of giving at B.C. Housing, which is administered under a program called Community Connections. Four organizations, including Big Brothers, currently benefit from this charitable initiative, which involves four main pillars: employee fundraising, employermatched giving, employer supported volunteerism; and corporate donations. “The goal of the program is to get more people involved,” said Dan Maxwell, B.C. Housing’s vice-president of corporate services and chair of the Community Connections program. “We want to encourage our employees to give not just money to worthy causes, but their time.” For example, under the four pillars of the program, the company will pay up to three days wages for employees who volunteer with organizations supported within the program. Add in B.C. Housing’s corporate donations – the organization provides annual funding for donations, with 75 per cent going to the four selected charities and 25 per cent allocated to employee requests that meet the pillars of the program – and 6

the company’s support for employee fundraising, and you have a corporate culture where giving back could not be easier. Maxwell takes little credit for leading this successful campaign that began back in 2008. Maxwell said the program started after the company decided to split from its charitable partnership with the United Way. It was Maxwell’s job to deliver a program that emphasized the giving of both time and money. “We talked with our employees and the idea was to have more employee engagement,” said Maxwell. “We kept hearing that our employees wanted to be more involved and this program allows them to do that.” For example, Big Brothers received more than $15,000 towards providing friendship-based mentoring programs for both boys and girls. In addition, 10 B.C. Housing staffers, including Yalung, are currently volunteering one-hour each week in the in-school mentoring program. The other organizations benefitting from Community Connections are: ◆ Covenant House Vancouver, which supports homeless youth through a shelter and transitional housing program. In 2010, B.C. Housing raised $30,000 for Covenant House, which turned into $60,000 when a private donor pledged to match the donations. ◆ The SPCA’s Charlie’s Food Bank, which received more than $18,000 to go toward a program where volunteers check the health of pets living with their owners on the street. They use the opportunity to help link homeless people to the support and services they need. They will also stock the pet food bank, which helps alleviate situations where people living in

poverty must make choices of who to feed – themselves or the pet they love. ◆ The Food Bank of Greater Vancouver, which received a cash donation of close to $30,000 from B.C. Housing. With the Food Bank able to buy $3 worth of food for every dollar donated, that means almost $90,000 of food could be bought with the B.C. Housing financial donation. In addition, close to 60 per cent of B.C Housing staff participated in food drives and charitable initiatives, which resulted in more than 650 food items - more than 800 pounds of food - being collected. Add in the company participating in the annual Canstruction competition, where cans of food are used to construct works of art – and all cans are donated to charity afterwards – and that’s another 1,350 cans of food donated to the Food Bank. The numbers don’t lie when Maxwell is asked about how successful Community Connections has been. Prior to 2008, the highest total contribu-

tion from B.C. Housing and its employees was a little more than $67,000. Last year, with all the numbers still coming in, that number has almost doubled, to $114,500. In terms of participation, more than two-thirds of B.C. Housing staff contributed in some way through the Community Connections program during the holiday season. “We’re happy with the numbers,” said Maxwell, “and I’m inspired by the people I work with. … To see how so many of them give their time to so many worthy endeavours, that’s had a huge impact on me.” Yalung is a shining example of that spirit, but he shrugs off the compliments. “Giving money is always good,” said Yalung,” but giving time is something you can’t measure the value of. I think that when you give time, you’re showing someone how valuable you think they are and you’re showing them that human

interaction.” Yalung values his time with Matthew, the Grade 3 Maywood student who doesn’t have a father figure in his life. “I don’t have a brother so it’s good for me too,” said Yalung. “It’s great to see how much Matthew has changed. When I first started meeting with him, he was a shy kid but now he’s a lot more social. It’s great to see the kids grow right before your eyes.”
Yalung and his colleague’s mentoring efforts resulted in B.C. Housing being honoured in 2010 with the Big Brothers Ralph Jordan Award for its in-school mentoring program. Other notable charitable efforts B.C. Housing staff were involved in last year included the Burnaby Christmas Bureau, which received 94 wrapped toys for the Be an Angel toy drive.

Parent claims teacher force-fed fruit to child Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
A Burnaby parent has taken a complaint over a local teacher to the B.C. College of Teachers, alleging his child was force fed a piece of fruit in class. “This is coming on the heels of another Stop Bullying Day. My question is, what can a child do when the bully is the teacher?” Julian said. (The NOW has chosen to withhold the teacher’s name, Julian’s last name and the child’s name.) The alleged incident happened last year, when Julian’s then seven-year-old child was in Grade 3. Julian got a call from his child at school, asking his dad to come at lunch. “So I got there, and he was nervous and upset, and I was trying to find out what was going on,” Julian said, adding the students were having fruit that day as part of an effort to introduce new fruits and vegetables. The teacher wanted the child to eat a plum, but he refused and was made to carry the plum around at recess under the watch of the teacher in question. According to Julian, his son returned from recess, with the uneaten plum in hand and wasn’t allowed to take it off of his desk. At lunch time, according to Julian, the teacher picked up the plum, put it in the child’s hand, took his hand and forced his hand up to his mouth. “He’s telling me he was crying, he didn’t want it, he was pulling away, but she kept forcing it in until it actually went into his mouth,” Julian said. “I talked to (the teacher) and said this is not OK, what you did is not OK. ... I told her in the future if there is one of these days again with the fresh fruit program, if he doesn’t want to eat it, you respect his decision. ...We will get him to try new things at home, but he’s not to be forced here in class. “Then two days later, the program happened again with the plum, and she did the same thing,” Julian said. “She did the exact same thing.” Julian said his son was feigning illness to avoid school after the alleged incident. “Every morning (he would say), ‘My stomach hurts, I don’t want to go to school, I think she’ll be mean to me today,’” Julian said. The family moved the child to another school that fall. Julian said his son is not a rambunctious kid.
“He’s quiet. He’s really friendly. He’s a little bit shy. He’s helpful he wants to do good. He doesn’t want to get in any trouble.” Julian said he complained to the teacher, the school’s head teacher and principal, school district staff, the RCMP and the B.C. College of Teachers. In general, the school district cannot comment on complaints due to stipulations in teachers’ contracts, but assistant superintendent Gina Niccoli-Moen explained that administrators usually try to resolve complaints at the school level first. If parents want to take it further, they can contact the district, and the superintendent will work with the school community and launch a full investigation, interviewing the people involved. “We have a range of outcomes dependent on whether or not allegations are founded,” Niccoli-Moen said. The outcomes could include a letter of expectation or discipline to the person in question, a hearing before the board of trustees and, in extreme cases, suspension or firing. “A parent needs to understand (that) we follow the protocol. We share with them what our options are at the end of the day. They may or may not be privy to the information or the outcomes. They need to trust and know that we deal with it and work to ensure the safety of every child. That’s what we talk about with the parent.” The B.C. College of Teachers is the selfregulatory body that handles complaints of teacher misconduct, but the college could not comment on specifics either. “The college is aware of the parent’s concern, and we are in the process of gathering more information on the matter,” said Sally Mercer. When asked if there is an investigation, Mercer replied: “It’s at the initial stage of gathering information.” The teacher in question does not have a discipline record with the college, but Mercer could not say if there had been any prior complaints about her. Julian wants the teacher to say she’s sorry. “I hate that she has gotten away with this,” he said. “She shouldn’t be teaching little kids... I am so upset about this thing. ... I wanted an apology from her to my son, so he knows it’s not his fault.” The NOW e-mailed an interview request to the teacher, and followed up with a call to the school, but did not receive a response by deadline.

it lost – but never doubt that right-wing politicians still harbour dreams about how they can neuter unions. The fact is, that they hardly need to bother. Unions are spinning their wheels trying to get new members. While publicsector unions have a captive membership, so to speak, the private sector merely needs to rely on a global job market, younger workers who have little union experience and an economy that teeters on growth – but still is rife with challenges – to deter unionization. It’s no wonder that union leaders
were all over the Egyptian revolution. Those kind of battles – the inspiring kind where brave young people fight for their rights – are what built the union movement. It gives labour leaders hope that people will rise up against oppression – perhaps even join a union in a rich Western democracy. Wisconsin may indeed be a pivotal moment in labour rights battles. But, we suspect, it’s a skirmish that offers labour leaders a much-needed injection of solidarity and a very visible stage on which to protest.

Sidewalks are important
North Burnaby residents have long complained about the lack of sidewalks, particularly in Capitol Hill. A city planning department report of Jan. 12 describes sidewalks as “having a direct impact on improving property values of the adjacent/abutting lands.” In other words, the sidewalk mostly benefits the homeowners on that block. That is why the city waits until at least 50 per Encourage Page 7

cent of the homeowners on a block ask for a sidewalk, under the city’s Local Area Service Program, and then charges those homeowners for half the cost of the sidewalk for the next 15 years. However, if you ask most homeowners with unfinished gravel road shoulders in front of their houses, they would rather have a convenient parking space than pony up their own money for a block of sidewalk. And even if one block gets a sidewalk, the next may not. Now we see why there are so few sidewalks. Even if the city initiates a new sidewalk, they will still charge the homeowners 50 per cent, and that is just not fair. I would gladly pay for sidewalks anywhere in Burnaby, not just on my block; that’s what our taxes are for. Sidewalks are a public good. They make it possible for children to walk to school, parents to take strollers to the park and senior citizens to get to the bus stop. They are just as much a part of our infrastructure as roads, plus they encourage people to exercise, drive less, reduce global warming and participate in our community. Without sidewalks, we cannot walk safely so we don’t walk, and we become dependent on and isolated in our cars. Some of the areas that need sidewalks are actually city property. Confederation Park is used by people of all ages from morning til night every day, yet there are no sidewalks on the east side of Willingdon by the ball field, pool and C1 bus, nor any on Beta through the park
past the soccer field and school, nor any on the west side of Gamma by the school and C2 bus. In fact there are no sidewalks at all leading to Confederation Park Elementary School. If you live, work or your family attends school in Burnaby Heights or Capitol Hill, the city wants to hear your opinions about sidewalks and neighbourhood traffic. Please fill in the questionnaire at www. burnaby.ca/BHCHReview, and include your comments, by April 2; or drop in to the open house at Confederation Seniors’ Centre on Tuesday, March 15 from 5 to 8 p.m. and fill it out there.

Time change is a waste Dear Editor:
It’s time for my biannual rant about changing the clocks. When will we realize that doing this accomplishes nothing, and in particular that it does not magically produce more daylight hours? We will have the same amount of daylight – more in the summer, less in the winter – regardless of how we label it. Changing the clocks causes inconvenience, mistakes, fatigue and accidents. It upsets the routines of babies, animals and people on medication. There is no benefit to be gained from this archaic practice, as far as I can tell. Let’s pick one of the two systems (daylight saving (my preference) or standard time and stick with it all year round. It’s about time! Cathy Morton, Burnaby

Burnaby proclaims Tibet Day Mayor Derek Corrigan proclaimed March 10 Tibet Day at Monday night’s council meeting. The proclamation was made at the beginning of the council meeting, with a Tibetan delegation in attendance. It is the first time the day has been observed in Burnaby though other municipalities have issued proclamations in the
past. Mati Bernabei, a faculty associate with Simon Fraser University’s education department, spearheaded the initiative with a letter to Corrigan. Corrigan presented the delegation with a copy of the proclamation, and was given a traditional Tibetan Khata in return. www.twitter.com/janayafe

Demolition plans cancelled
One of the City of Burnaby’s rental homes, located at 6320 Deer Lake Dr., will not be demolished as planned, according to a report from the city’s finance and civic development committee. The city has decided to keep the building for rental purposes for now, while remediating the site around it. The cost of the project, which was approved by council at Monday night’s meeting, is $300,000.
The property was acquired by the city in 1995, through the Deer Lake Park land acquisition program. Heating oil tanks on the property were found to be leaking last October. The tanks were removed. The city tenant was provided with a temporary tank at the time. The proposed project would remove the affected soil and restore the site, according to the report. – Janaya Fuller-Evans

New space for non-profit groups
Non-profit groups in Burnaby may soon be able to find new quarters. Burnaby council has approved plans to move forward with granting three community amenity spaces to non-profit groups. The office or program space is in multi-use developments at 4509 Kingsway; 6451, 6475 and 6479 Telford Ave.; and 2085 Rosser Ave. The density bonus at the Kingsway location was expected to generate a
6,100-square-foot space for a community organization on the third storey. The amenity space on Telford Avenue could be 4,400 sq. ft. or 16,000 sq. ft., with either 11 or 22 parking stalls, depending on the whether the supplemental community benefit bonus density policy is used. The space would be in three floors of the development, with approximately 2,500 sq. ft. at street level. This could accommodate one to five non-
profit groups. The space at Rosser Avenue would be 6,000 sq. ft. on two storeys, with 13 parking spaces. The city plans to put out a call for proposals from non-profits at some point in mid-March. The proposed deadline for the request for proposals is mid-April, with shortlisted applicants notified in early May. – Janaya Fuller-Evans

SECTION COORDINATOR Julie MacLellan, 604-444-3020 • email@example.com
Siblings in the Hollywood spotlight Julie MacLellan staff reporter
When Kaitlin Cheung was little, she used to act out scenes from the Disney movie Mulan, staging small performances for her family. It seemed inevitable that she’d end up in show business some day. As it turned out, “some day” wasn’t that far off. Kaitlin, who’s now 8, is already a veteran actor in the world of film and television. She and her older brother Nathan, 14, are off to Los Angeles this weekend for the 32nd annual Young Artist Awards, where they’re both up for honours for their acting. The awards are Hollywood’s salute to the best work in film and television by child and teen stars. The list of nominees includes such notable names as Elle Fanning and the Academy Award-nominated Hailee Steinfeld. “You see a lot of kids from bigger movies and from L.A.,” notes Nathan and Kaitlin’s mom, Meishan. Kaitlin is nominated for Best Performance in a Short Film for young actresses 10 and under, for her work in the independent film The Perfect Gift for Flora. Nathan is up for Best Performance in a TV Series for guest starring actors aged 11 to 13. That’s for his work in Untold Stories of the ER, which aired on The Learning Channel last year. They’re both pretty low-key about the chance to go to L.A. for the weekend – they’ve been a number of times before – but they’re pleased about being nominated for the awards. For Nathan, it’s an honour that comes after only a couple of acting jobs – he was in a B.C. Hydro commercial (remember the kid who wrapped a sandwich with a non-stop stream of aluminum foil?) and the Untold Stories episode, and that’s the extent of his resumé. He got into acting through Kaitlin, who’s had an agent for a few years . Nathan says the Untold Stories filming was enjoyable – but it was a long day. “I had to wake up at 5 a.m.,” he says, noting he was on set for 10 hours or so to film his half-hour in the spotlight.

Family affair: Nathan Cheung, 14, and sister Kaitlin, 8, are successful young actors from Burnaby. They’re in Los Angeles this weekend for the 32nd Annual Young Artist Awards, where they’re both up for honours for their acting.
“It was fun,” he says, but adds he has no desire to keep acting. His interest lies more in the behind-thescenes areas. “I like the more computer, technical stuff,” he says. “I’m into computer-generated effects.” He prefers to spend time filming his own short pieces and then adding effects on his computer, he says. Kaitlin, on the other hand, is hooked on acting. “I like that I can be another person, that I can be someone else that I’m not,” she says. “The characters that some people play are really interesting.” She admits that days on set can be long
and kinda boring – “you get really hungry, too,” she warns – but she always has fun. A favourite filming moment was working on a Strawberry Shortcake commercial with two other girls – they made each other laugh a lot – and she also had a good time with her “movie parents” on the set of Flora. When she’s not acting, she spends a lot of time dancing, studying tap, ballet, jazz and musical theatre at Spotlight Dance Centre. She just loves performing – and she’s emphatic that it’s something she wants to keep doing. And, fortunately, it’s something she finds support for at home, since there can be a lot of running around involved in an
actor’s life. Meishan points out that, if your agent calls you with news of an audition, it’s usually happening the next day. Then, if you’re lucky, you’ll get a callback. Then, of course, comes the filming – all of which means you have to be prepared to live on the fly. “You’ve got to drop everything and go with this industry,” Meishan points out. “I’m lucky I don’t have a nine-to-five job, I’m flexible that way.” Want to see Kaitlin on screen? You can catch her in an episode of Fairly Legal this Thursday on Showcase. See www.youngartistawards.org for more information about the awards. www.twitter.com/juliemaclellan

A ‘living building’ HERE & NOW
FU Community Trust’s new child-care centre on Burnaby Mountain is part of the Vancouver Art Gallery exhibit We:Vancouver – 12 Manifestos for the City. The local child-care centre is the first “living building” in Canada. The living building challenge is a certification process put forth by the International Living Building Institute, a nongovernment organization promoting sustainable design and construction. To meet the living building challenge, the centre has to generate more energy than it uses and recycle or collect more water than it consumes. It also has to be toxicfree, and the majority of building materials has to be sourced within a 500-kilometre radius. The child-care centre is under construction and should be complete by fall. People perusing the art gallery can check out
a multimedia piece on the centre, with a model and a video describing the project. There will also be a cedar hut, custom built by Hornby Island artist Alastair Heseltine, which will be installed at the child-care centre after the exhibits ends on May 1.
If you want to have a say in how the school district spends its money, there’s a chance to do so soon. The event is for people who have ideas on how the district should prioritize its spending. The meeting is Tuesday, March 29, at 7 p.m. at the Schou Education Centre, at 4041 Canada Way. If you plan on making a submission, register by calling 604-664-8389 before March 28 at 1 p.m.
After we ran the story on John Mills, a local man who went from being illiterate to publishing his own book, we received a note from another reader, who also struggled with reading and writing. Burnaby resident Margaret Hoffman, 92, came to Canada from Norway in her early teens and didn’t speak a word of English.
She taught herself to read and write and use a typewriter. Her book, Broken Branches: An Immigrant Girl’s Search for a Better Life in Canada, was recently published by Falcon Press, a small company in Vancouver and Calgary. Copies will soon be available at Chapters and through Falcon Press by calling 604-438-7129.

Giro planning underway Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
The wheels are in motion for the Heights’ signature Italian bike race, Giro di Burnaby. “Things are going full speed ahead,” says Rainy Kent, Burnaby’s event director. The race is planned along the same route as the last one, held in 2008. But it will begin earlier in the day, at 6 p.m., on July 14. This means that Hastings Street, from Rosser Avenue to McDonald Avenue, and parts of other streets on the race circuit will be shut down at 4 p.m., so volunteers can prepare the course, Kent says. But there will be signs up during the week leading up to the race, she adds, and volunteers will be on hand at Hats Off Day to inform the community about the route and closures. Embassy Development Corporation, Appia Developments Ltd. and Palladio Jewelers Canada returned as title sponsors, Kent says. Palladio will be creating the gold medallions for the first-place female and male riders in the race, Kent says, as it has done previously. The two Ferraris that

Giro Heroes are mostly made up of members of Burnaby’s running community, according to Kent, but anyone is welcome to apply. “It’s a good fit,” she says of the cyclists and runners. Anyone who wants to volunteer is welcome to apply and can do so on the Giro di Burnaby website. Safeway will host the athletes’ village in its parking lot, Kent says.

WHEELS Deals Price is right for the new Volkswagen Jetta David Chao
or the past two decades, the story on the Jetta has been the same thing: good car, too expensive. Jetta owners loved their German-engineered compact sedans dearly, but in comparison to less-expensive Honda Civics and Toyota Corollas, it was difficult to compete directly on price alone. As a result, the Jetta settled into something of a niche role, with a loyal fanbase and a host of admirers, while the
Civic and Corolla dominated sales. For its part, Volkswagen seemed fine with that. Preferring to position the Jetta as a premium alternative, the automaker decided to sell it alongside the City Jetta, which was essentially the previous model at a lower price. However, that strategy could only go so far. With a new crop of value-priced compacts arriving for 2011, Volkswagen had to reconsider the Jetta sales model. The result is a brand new, 2011 Volkswagen Jetta
that sells for just $15,875, which is a significant drop from the 2010 model’s $22,000 starting price. And while the redesigned, sixth-generation sedan is an excellent car, that price reduction is what makes it a potential game changer. There’s only one major sticking point, and you’ll find it under the hood. In order to get the price down, VW has equipped sub-$20k Jettas with its decades-old 2.0L inline-four, which produces a subcompactlike 115-hp and 125 lb-ft of torque. To get the excellent
2.5L inline-five that served as the base engine in last year’s model, you have to spend $21k. Mind you, consumers who have always wanted a Jetta can finally justify the purchase – and that’s really the point. Volkswagen has taken the Jetta closer to what it once was, without
A prominent badge and trademark grille treatment clearly define the Jetta as a Volkswagen, but there’s a decidedly Audi-ish feel to it in the back. Inside, the Jetta continues the simple styling with a business-like interior that isn’t fancy but comes across
compromising what it has become.
The best overall descriptor for the Jetta is “simple,” and the designers have done a fantastic job. It’s a very elegant car, with clean lines and pleasing proportions.

as very well organized and comfortable. Build quality is a definite high point.
The base 2.0L inlinefour generates 115-hp and 125 lb-ft of torque, while the 2.5L inline-five pushes 170-hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. Both engines get a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. Down the line, the turbocharged 2.0L from the previous model will return (good for 200-hp), along with a 1.4L hybrid powertrain with 150-hp and a seven-speed direct-shift gearbox. What many people really want is VW’s turbocharged TDI 2.0L diesel, producing 140-hp and 236 lb-ft of torque and connected to a six-speed manual or direct-shift gearbox. Handling is reasonably good, but the steering is a tad light. In combination with the 2.0L engine, that makes for a very relaxed base model when it comes to performance, though the prospects are improved by the more-responsive 2.5L.

Clan toast new field with win Tom Berridge sports editor
Simon Fraser University christened its new softball park with a pair of wins in its doubleheader debut in NCAA Division II women’s softball Sunday. SFU earned its first-ever victory at Beedie Field with a 5-3 victory over Western Oregon. The win was also the Clan’s firstever Great Northwest conference victory. The Clan also won the second game of the doubleheader with a come-from-behind 3-2 win. “It was great that Keith Beedie was here and able to see this game,” said SFU head coach Mike Rennie in a prepared release. “We are a young team this season and are going to make mistakes, and there were some nerves with this being the first game in our new home. But I was pleased with how well we responded.” In the opener, SFU came back from a 3-0 deficit with two runs in the fifth inning from Leah Riske and Burnaby Mountain grad Brittany Mayers, who also knocked in the game-winning run with a sacrifice fly to right in the bottom of the sixth. Cara Lukawesky went seven innings for the win, striking out seven batters, while giving up a pair of home runs to Western Oregon. In the nightcap, SFU freshman Kelsie Hawkins earned her first career victory, pitching all seven innings with nine strikeouts. SFU again had to rally from a 2-0 deficit. Lauren Mew and Carly LePoutre were both batted home in a score-tying bottom of the third. The score remained tied until the sixth inning, when Mayers scored the winning run from third base, stealing home from third base on a passed ball. On Monday, the Clan ended their opening weekend of play at the new Beedie Field on campus with a pair of disappointing losses. SFU lost 3-2 and 6-3 in the final doubleheader against Western Oregon University. “(Western Oregon) did to us today what we did yesterday, and the difference was they made adjustments and we didn’t respond in

First victory: SFU pitcher Cara Lukawesky earned the Clan’s firstever win at the new Beedie Field on Sunday. kind,” added Renney. Kelsey Haberl of Burnaby doubled in a pair of runs to give the home team a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the first inning in the opener. In the second game, Haberl again provided much of the scoring, clubbing a two-run dinger in the fourth to give SFU a 2-0 lead. The junior first base then brought
home Rosie Murphy with her third RBI of the game with a bases-loaded single up the middle in the fifth. Western Oregon came back with a six-run sixth inning to even the four-game series. The Clan women are in Lacey, Washington this weekend for a pair of doubleheaders against St. Martin’s University, beginning on Saturday.
If the Burnaby South Rebels are to win a third B.C. AAA high school boys’ basketball title, they’ll have to do it as a team. South earned the No. 1 pre-season ranking and has held onto the top billing for almost the entire season, except for a brief hiccup following a third-place finish at the Legal Beagle tournament at Terry Fox school in January. The Rebels were back on top in the poll after avenging an earlier loss to Kelowna at the Western Canada tourney in early February. But despite a 33-3 record, South will not be entering the 66th annual B.C. boys’ championships as the No. 1 seed. South stumbled through Lower Mainland qualifying last week, coming back in the fourth quarter to get by Vancouver city champion Sir Charles Tupper in the semifinals. They then were overwhelmed in the opening quarter of the Mainland final to eventual winner R.C. Palmer. Both games showed the fundamental weaknesses of the star-studded Burnaby high school hoop team. “That’s the game,” said South head coach Greg Matic, after last Saturday’s 90-78 loss to Palmer in the Mainland championship final. “If we leave them open, they’ll make those shots.” And that’s where a little high school basketball history might help. Burnaby South has won
a Lower Mainland boys’ title on six separate occasions but managed to parlay that into just two provincial championships – the first in 1953 and the last one in 1979. Provincial all-star forward Don Steen remembers the ‘53 Rebels well. “It was an exciting year, one of the most exciting moments in sport for me, was that tournament,” said the B.C. Sports Hall of Famer. “No question, we played as a unit. The following year, 1954, I believe we had a better team, but everyone was trying to make the all-star team, and it didn’t work.” The early Rebel team was led by point guard Bob Ramsay, who drained the game-winning bucket on the final shot of the game to down defending threepeat champion Duke of Connaught in one of the most memorable finishes in local high school history. But the group was more than one player, said Steen. Ramsay had a hoop in his back yard, and his father set up outdoor lights so the team could practise any time they liked. “We were shooting hoops there all the time,” Steen said. The ‘79 Rebels, under no-nonsense coach Mike Jones, were also a wellgroomed group. “We had guys who just understood the game well,” said Jones, who switched the boys to a halfcourt defence to cut down on fouls halfway through the season. “Once we got to South Page 28

The Clan club team ended the season on a positive note, edging thirdplace Okanagan College 3-2 at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre last Saturday. SFU finished just one point behind regular season champion Thompson Rivers University. First star Kyle Boyko scored the game-winnng goal on a power play with less than two minutes remaining in the game. Captain Paul Moscone assisted on both of SFU’s two counters in the final frame, including Anthony Ferrari’s go-ahead tally early in the period. James Isaccs opened the scoring for the home team

BC HYDRO POLE RENEWAL PROJECT BC Hydro is pro-actively replacing 1000 existing wooden poles in Burnaby and Vancouver. These poles are reaching their end of life, which is up to 50 years old. BC Hydro is replacing the poles to ensure system reliability, and to ensure public and BC Hydro crew safety. This project will conclude at the end of May 2011. You may have noticed the wooden replacement poles are being dropped on boulevards and in front of homes, and close to replacement pole locations. The poles are not being dropped on private property. Teams of contractors or crews are now dropping the poles, and another team of contractors or crews will be replacing the poles. Because of the number of poles associated with this project, there is no set schedule as to when poles will be replaced. We would like to thank—in advance—the public for their patience during this replacement project. If you have any concerns, please contact BC Hydro Customer Services at 604 224 9376. bchydro.com

South team to grace the hardwood. They, too, can fracture an opposition’s confidence if everything is going right. But so far in the playoffs against the top-seeded teams, the Rebels have not lived up to that stellar billing. Matic said, South got a wake-up call from Palmer in the Mainland final. But, perhaps they can learn a little from past history as well. “We have to match (Palmer’s energy) and play as a team,” Matic said. But there will be other solid teams to face along the road to the final before reaching Palmer on the other side of the draw. At next week’s provincials, South will be on the same side of the draw with the No. 2-ranked Kelowna Owls, No. 4 Vancouver College and Fraser Valley champion W.J. Mouat. South will play its opening game of the provincials at the Langley Events Centre on Wednesday against Vancouver Island No. 2 Oak Bay. Tipoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m.

late in the season, we could almost score at will.” The team was led by another MVP guard, Brian Craig, who shut down Richmond’s Alan Tate, a name at or near the top of almost all the individual Mainland scoring records. “Brian (Ramsay) could hit. He was so skilled he gave a lot of players defensive problems, and he could find the open guy. But he could score.” Jones went with a largely six-man unit down the final stretch, but it was never about just one man, he said. “They were total team players,” Jones added. “I couldn’t really key on one guy. They could all score, and they all could shoot. The hallmark for the ‘79 Rebels was closing each quarter with an emphatic buzzer-beating bomb from long range. “It shattered (the opposition) psychologically,” said Jones. The 2011 Rebels, led by guards Ater Degal and Manroop Clair, are arguably the deepest talent-rich

The common question I hear my clients ask is, "What do I want to be when I grow up?'. Yes, this comes from adults – people who are already grown up - and yes they are half joking, but there is an Gregg Taylor incredible truth to it, as many (if not most) people do not really know what they want to do in their career. However, the question I would really like people to ask themselves when they are in a life/career transition is: "Who do I want to be?" I believe it's more important to discover, accept, and honour 'who' we are before we try to figure out 'what' we are supposed to do. After all, we are human beings, not human doings, yet many people forget or do not understand how important it is in life to really know who they are. To quote the Taoist Philosopher, Lao Tsu: "He who knows others is learned, he who knows himself is wise." In order to learn more about ourselves, we must invest time and energy into assessing our values, temperament, talents, interests, dreams, fears and beliefs. Who we are is more than these parts but it does provide a foundation to help determine what we are meant to do in our career. Once we have done a thorough self examination, we can then weigh this information against different lifestyle choices and occupations to see which would be the best match for us. Keep in mind however that values, passions, beliefs and interests are apt to change over a person’s life time so it's only understandable that we may also change the way we want to live or the work we want to do at different times or terms of our life. Don't get too attached to having it look like one career for life. Who do I want to be? Who am I now? These are the questions you ought to be asking yourself if you are in a career conundrum. The characteristics of your true self, as they are today, are what you need to examine first; the rest is just details. For help making a career change, 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.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness rise high Sunday to Tuesday, giving you the ability to cope with some major obstacles or problems that have existed for two or three years. Your luck, karma and self-image hit the lowest spot in two decades over the last year and a half. Now you’re beginning the long climb upward, back to the sunshine. Things turn Monday about noon – relationships, ﬁnances, security and intimacy take on a comfortable, healthy glow! Your money and career luck climb midweek. But you hit a familiar relationship drag Friday/Saturday: being light, friendly cures it. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Lie low, rest and contemplate Sunday to Tuesday noon. Don’t tempt fate. Tuesday afternoon might start with a rush, a sudden friendship, a brilliant idea, or merely a wee uplift – in whatever way, a small signal comes that the next eight years are going to be different – you are stepping into a zone of increased awareness and intellectual acuity, of increased and smoother love, more travel, more learning; and if single, you will very likely marry. Life is fresh, mysteries ﬂee (well, soon)! Expect attention all midweek. Chase money but beware spending, Friday/Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Be wary of investments, large ﬁnancial undertakings, intimacy and any “private co-operation” Sunday – and all week. These are ethically OK Monday, but they still won’t yield practical proﬁt. Work is reliable, though: you’re paid honestly, fairly. Relationships face some bumps, but you remain buoyant, and end happily. Retire for some rest and contemplation Tuesday noon to Thursday noon. Contacts with institutions, government or “head ofﬁce” go well. Reconnect with spiritual realms. Your energy and charisma leap upward Thursday eve onward, but co-operation’s essential.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: This isn’t the easiest week. There aren’t any disasters (unless you’re impetuous Sunday or late week, Saturday).You’re just rowing against the wind in career, communications, media, travel, work and health zones. Plod onward, and get plenty of rest. Watch what you say or write Sunday and Friday/Saturday. Home’s no picnic Sunday and early Monday, but Monday p.m. into Tuesday noon brings a gratifying sense of emotional security and friendship. Contemplate romance midweek. Tackle chores (safely) Thursday onward. A brand new world of hope and friendship lies ahead! Taurus April 20-May 20: One more week of happiness, optimism, ﬂirting, new plans, life’s vigour, friendships and entertainment! It won’t be a totally smooth time, though. Sunday contains some communications foul-ups (beware gossip, secret acts, especially regarding a partner) after which you feel gloom Monday morning. But all’s smooth after this, especially in shopping and earning, Tuesday/ Wednesday. Romance, gambling urges and creative surges arrive Thursday noon to Saturday noon -- but you might have to choose between “two attractions” or two actions. A chore you didn’t do nags at you. Gemini May 21-June 20: Plug away at career, ambition, prestige or authority-related chores. (If something in this arena began in 2010 or last January, it’s still a winner.) Be careful with money – make a major purchase, seek a pay raise or deal with important clients after midday Monday, not before (nor Sunday). Short trips, communications, paperwork, casual friendships and errands go well midweek. But someone’s evasive or deceptive around noon Thursday. All week, your hopes might struggle against a financial, romantic, age or health barrier. Try this: conform to the barrier; make it an aid.

Co-operation will be lacking until Monday noon, so plan your most important moves for that p.m. Hopes, optimism, friendship and light ﬂirtation play around you Tuesday to Thursday – one of the most exciting relationship periods of your life is starting! Retreat, rest Friday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: You’re in a romantic, creative, beauty-aware time, and Sunday to Tuesday bring a mellow, understanding mood. Good – you’ll need all the understanding you can muster Sunday through noon Monday, when various obstacles try your patience, especially in the work arena. By noon this trend switches 180 degrees to success, and romance has a better than even chance, right into pre-dawn Tuesday. Your ambitions get a splendid opportunity Tuesday eve to early Thursday (unless you worry about security) – take the chance, early (Tuesday best). Optimism, happiness, popularity late week! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The accent remains on home, children, security, real estate, nature, stomach, soul and nurturing, for one more week. It isn’t the easiest week – romance and pleasure can’t seem to escape the realities of money and earnings. They’re intertwined, through late 2012. On the plus side, the same period (18 months) blesses you in emotional, serene, moral ways – you’ll feel good, right. (And you’ll be oddly protected from any disasters.) But don’t seek intimacy, sex nor investments Sunday. Gentle love, understanding and travel ideas enter mid-week. Be ambitious Thursday eve, Friday.

Mar. 13 - Mar. 19 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Communications, paperwork, details, errands, casual friends, short trips and curiosity ﬁll this week and next. In the slowest, most gradual way, like water on blotting paper, this area of your life will grow for the next 15 years. At the same time (perhaps illogically) your worries about money and income will fade. You enter eight years of “home excitement” this week. This can have a negative effect, bringing more stress to the home (so relax, exercise, guard digestion) and a positive one: money made from property, food/shelter areas. A big new life! Midweek joy, romance. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Continue to chase money, but cautiously. This entire week, romance, gambling, sex, investments, lifestyle changes, secrets and “detective work” need to be handled carefully – or better yet, left alone, especially Sunday and Thursday onward.Tackle chores Sunday to Tuesday noon – follow safety rules Sunday/Monday. You glow with a certain sweet light all March, which can attract romantic attention. Tuesday afternoon to Thursday noon could provide some relationship excitement! Be diplomatic but eager these days. Secrets, “darker urges” arise Thursday/Friday – be honest, clean, safe. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness continue to put you on top. But this week has a couple of barriers which irk you a bit. They involve a partner, and/or your home situation, and/or money. (In all cases, money.) Ah, well, everything that has a compromise, has a solution. Sunday to Tuesday heightens your romantic, pleasure and beauty sensors. A creative surge arrives! (It’s better, easier, Monday p.m. onward.) Tackle chores midweek – you’ll do them swiftly, successfully. Good health news! Relationships present challenges Thursday to Saturday: be diplomatic, loving. email@example.com • Reading: 416-686-5014
