Chicken decision ruffles feathers in city Council votes against allowing backyard hens – but may revisit the issue in a year Janaya Fuller-Evans
Wait and see. That is Burnaby council’s message regarding backyard chickens. City councillors voted unanimously to leave Burnaby’s bylaws as they are
in regards to poultry at Monday night’s meeting. The decision was made after more than an hour of debate with Gordon World, who has advocated for over a year to have backyard chickens made legal in the city. World was visibly frustrated with the brevity of the report that led to council’s decision and said it only focused on the negative aspects of having chickens in the city. He called the four-page report, dated June 16, a “glorified Post-it note” in com-

parison with Vancouver’s extensive study on the subject. “It’s almost like this report was written to bury the issue,” World said to council. The report, prepared by city staff member Zeralynne Modequillo, mentioned other municipalities such as Vancouver, New Westminster, Victoria, Nanaimo and Esquimalt, which allow hens to be kept on residential lots. In Coquitlam, Richmond, Surrey and Kamloops, hens are only allowed on large lots and are not at all permitted on resi-

dential lots in North Vancouver, the report stated. The bulk of the report detailed concerns with backyard chickens, including noise and odour, pests, the possible spread of disease, and abandoned poultry. “There’s a lot of emphasis on what could happen,” World said to council. “There are no pros, just cons.” Mayor Derek Corrigan spoke about the brevity of the report, explaining that city staff often takes other cities’ documents,

Festival celebrates South Asian film
Burnaby actor on screen this weekend in festival that’s the first of its kind in B.C. Andrew Fleming staff reporter
Despite the crossover success of hit films like Slumdog Millionaire, The Namesake and Bend It Like Beckham, there’s still a lingering misconception that East Indian films are mostly enjoyed only by East Indians themselves. Organizers of the upcoming South Asian Film Festival, taking place this Saturday at Vancity Theatre and the first of its kind in B.C., are hoping to help finally put that tired stereotype to rest. “We’re calling it South Asian, but really it is all Indian,” admitted Burnaby actor and festival volunteer Nimet Kanji. “What can I say, brown is the new black!” Kanji, whose recent work includes recurring roles on the shows Little Mosque on the Prairie, Blood Ties and Godiva’s, stars in the short film Bollywood Beckons. She plays the mother of a young woman who dreams of ditching the boring Canadian ‘burbs for the bright lights of Bollywood. The film, one of 10 films on the menu, was written and produced by tireless local actor Agam Darshi (Sanctuary, Dan for Mayor), who plays the aspiring Bollywood star and is the co-founder of the inaugural festival. “She wants South Asians to play more of a mainstream role, to play mainstream characters rather than always just playing Indian characters,” said Kanji of her costar of both the short film and the upcoming new GlobalTV series Shattered. “The idea is to try and bridge the gap for audiences who might not otherwise go and see so-called Indian films.” The gap isn’t as wide as you might think. Bollywood films regularly appear in the top 20 movies at Canadian box offices

Bollywood North: South Asian Film Festival organizer Agam Darshi stars in the short film Bollywood Beckons, which she also wrote and produced. The film is one of 10 films being screened Saturday at Vancity Theatre. (the Hindi film Ravaan, for example, sits at number 14 for this week), which is all the more impressive considering there’s virtually no mainstream English-language advertising or media promoting them. “It’s more than just bindis and saris and Bollywood,” said Darshi. “There are so many different aspects of what it is to be South Asian and what it is to be Indian,
and so I think I was just really fascinated by that.” Along with showcasing a wide variety of films with a significant South Asian component, the festival will also feature a panel discussion. The discussion will include several local heavy hitters in the film industry, such as director Vic Sarin (Partition, A Shine of Rainbows), Smallville
actress Kristin Kreuk, casting director Corrine Clar and trailblazing IndoCanadian VJ Monika Deol. Individual tickets are $5 while a fullday pass, which includes the panel discussion and closing gala, is $40. Vancity Theatre is located at 1181 Seymour St. in downtown Vancouver.

Man’s body found in trunk of abandoned car Police awaiting autopsy results before releasing any further details about suspicious death Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Burnaby RCMP discovered the body of a man in the trunk of an abandoned vehicle in South Burnaby on Saturday. 6
At 3 p.m. on June 19, the RCMP received a report of an abandoned vehicle parked at the west end of a dead end alley, north of the 4000-block of Dominion Street. While investigating the vehicle, officers opened the trunk and discovered a deceased man. The man is thought to be in his mid20s, according to a press release from the police. The scene was immediately secured and the integrated homi-
cide investigation team (IHIT) was called to handle the investigation. The death is being treated as suspicious at this point, according to an RCMP press release. An autopsy is planned for early this week, and the Lower Mainland district forensic investigation section will be examining the scene where the body was found. Investigators will be conducting inquiries throughout the

Once a positive identification is made, investigators will be contacting his next of kin. Police are not releasing any further information about the man’s death until the autopsy is completed, according to Cpl. Dale Carr, spokesperson for IHIT.

Homeless people not relocated from park Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
A group of about 30 homeless people is still in Central Park after the city nixed plans to have them removed on Monday. Mayor Derek Corrigan said the removal would go through in the future, once the city has coordinated efforts with provincial government ministries. Corrigan stressed that the provincial government is constitutionally responsible for helping the homeless and needs to work towards resolving Burnaby’s homelessness problem. “The emphasis has been taken off of provincial agencies,” Corrigan said, adding that he hasn’t heard of social workers assigned to help the homeless people in Central Park. The vagrants cannot stay where they are because it is a heritage park and the ecology must be protected, he said. When asked if the city had decided against removing people from the park on Monday because of legal concerns, Corrigan said Burnaby has to ensure the removal is done legally. However, he wasn’t sure whether or not Burnaby’s situation could be compared to Victoria’s in October 2008, when the B.C. Supreme Court ruled that homeless people were allowed to camp in city parks if there were not enough shelter beds for them in the city. The ruling challenged Victoria’s bylaw against camping in public parks. Burnaby’s director of parks, recreation and culture, Dave Ellenwood, mentioned Burnaby’s no-camping bylaw as one of the rea-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Closing gun ranges a mistake
Re: Gun enthusiast decries loss of shooting sites, Burnaby NOW, June 19. The report in the recent Burnaby NOW missed a few key issues. Closing the ranges hurt all Burnaby residents, not just those who enjoy target shooting. First, closing the ranges increased the environmental impact because, had the ranges been allowed to remain, there would have been few if any problems. Second, closing the ranges increased the cost to Burnaby taxpayers because the ranges had volunteered to pay for ongoing environmental protection.

Third, closing the ranges reduced the quality of police protection for Burnaby residents because it forced police members to drive outside of Burnaby to find a target range. Requiring officers to travel to other cities to practise not only means that fewer police officers remain within the city limits on any given day, but it also, due to increased travel costs, tends to reduce the time police officers have available to practise their shooting skills. Fortunately, RCMP officers are rarely required to use their sidearms. But when they are, they need to be as well-trained as possible. The gun ranges were closed because of leftwing biases, not recreational politics. All Burnaby

Child poverty a travesty Dear Editor:
For the seventh straight year in a row, B.C. has the highest child poverty rate in Canada. Rather than admitting that this is a problem that should addressed by the legislature, our provincial government will be too busy cheering the fact that the child poverty level was reduced by a single percentage point; now only 13 per cent of all children in B.C. live in poverty – this is more children living in poverty than the combined population of Nanaimo and Prince George. The key here is that our government has to start looking at policies that help the people instead of their corporate fundraisers. Living in the Metro Vancouver area, it’s hard not to notice the price of goods and services here. Worse still is the cost of housing. The B.C. Liberals should start immediately focusing on building low-income housing across the province. The partnership they have fostered with the City of Vancouver and the Streetohome
Foundation was a good start, but this government needs to do much more to make up for 10 years of ignoring the issue. These projects must be spread throughout our province, as child poverty and homelessness are provincewide problems. An increase to the minimum wage would also aid in reducing the levels of child poverty in B.C. Over 50 per cent of all children who live in poverty have parents who work full-time; it should be obvious that these parents need to have a fair wage that ensures they have the ability to properly feed and take care of their families. But the B.C. Liberals have failed to increase the minimum wage for 10 years, leaving it at $8 an hour, the lowest minimum wage in Canada. Thanks to inflation, this has actually meant there was a 30 per cent reduction in the real wages that are being taken home by families, leading to more families and children being left under the low-income cut-off and being forced into poverty. The government could follow the example made by the City of New Westminster and institute a fair wage law forcing employers to pay a wage high enough to sustain families. Even a small increase to the minimum wage would be beneficial. Seven years is a long time to hold the distinction for the highest percentage of children in poverty. Hopefully the Liberals get the message and start working on policies to end this travesty. Trevor Ritchie, Burnaby
Education: Change is on the way continued from page 6
as it pertains to school trustees may be missing the larger picture. Comptroller-general Cheryl WenezenkiYolland portrays the Vancouver school board as operating within a governance model that is largely controlled by the employees who work for it (i.e. teachers and the Canadian Union of Public Employees support staff workers). As a result, flexibility and the ability to change policies are greatly hampered. While there has been a lot of attention paid to the war of words between Education Minister Margaret MacDiarmid and Vancouver School Board chair Patti Bacchus, a key phrase from the minister has been overlooked. She has talked about the need for a new “governance model” and how she will develop one soon.
A new model is going to have a more profound impact on our system than closing a few schools or squabbling over a school board’s budget. So what, exactly, is the B.C. Liberal government up to? Is it about to do an end run around the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) and CUPE by setting up these “new forms of schools” with direct parental involvement? Is it about to take the first steps toward creating a new parallel education system? One clue may be what’s going on England, where the new coalition government is embarking on a massive restructuring of the country’s education system. There, the Swedish model of so-called “free schools” (where parents and organizations set up their own school with government money) is being implemented. Will we see “free
schools” set up on a trial basis in a few school districts? It can be argued that the B.C. Liberals, given their very low standing in the polls, do not have the political credibility or muscle to carry out big changes on any front. But they wouldn’t be the first government to go down swinging over an issue it considers important enough. The BCTF will soon enter negotiations for a new contract and it won’t accept a wage freeze like other public sector unions, so a fight is brewing on that front as well. Perhaps that’s the one thing – a contract battle with teachers – that won’t change in education. But it sure seems likely that “21st-century learning” means other changes are on the way.

Public safety Police officer charged forum tonight Vancouver police officer’s name cannot be released
Burnaby RCMP is holding a community safety forum this Wednesday at Eastburn Community Centre in South Burnaby. The public forum takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. on June 23 at the centre located at 7435 Edmonds St. All local residents are invited to participate. The forum will include Supt. Rick Taylor and Mayor Derek Corrigan. It will focus on public safety and 2010 policing initiatives in a question-and-answer session with residents. “Community engagement is an essential component of crime reduction,” said Cpl. Brenda Gresiuk, media relations officer for the Burnaby RCMP. She asked residents to “get informed, get involved.” The public consultations are used to determine policing priorities in the future, she said. email@example.com
Burnaby RCMP charged a Vancouver police officer with four counts of domestic assault last Friday. The male officer has been transferred
to administrative duties pending the outcome of the court proceedings, according to a press release from the Vancouver Police Department. His name cannot be released as a result of a ban on publication by the court to protect the identity of the victims.

Ex-head of SFU honoured
ack Diamond, former chancellor of Simon Fraser University, was posthumously inducted into the Junior Achievement of B.C.’s Hall of Fame on May 19. Diamond, the man behind the largest packinghouse in Western Canada, the Pacific Meat Company, was chancellor at SFU for three years, from 1975 to 1978. He died in 1991 and was awarded the Order of British Columbia that same year. Almost 700 business leaders, aspirants and their guests from across the province gathered at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver for the induction of the newest business laureates into the Hall of Fame. JABC created the Business Laureates of British Columbia Hall of Fame in 2006 to recognize citizens who have shown a vision unique amongst their peers, provided leadership to move others to achieve their goals, demonstrated integrity throughout their lives and built a legacy in this province that will enrich all those that follow, according to a press release. Pinton Forrest & Madden, the laureate sponsor, guided the 2010 laureate nomination process. A committee of three laureates and one non-laureate – Joe Segal, president of Kingswood Capital Corporation; Ike Barber, director of Slocan Forest Products; Michael Audain, chair, Polygon Homes Ltd.; and Sarah Morgan-Silvester, chair, Port Metro Vancouver Board – selected the four inductees. The other three inductees were Alex Campbell, co-founder and chair emeritus of Thrifty Foods; Robert Lee, chair of Prospero Group; and Jack Poole, chair of the Vancouver Olympic Organizing Committee’s board of directors (also inducted posthumously).

Beech boys design future Local entrepreneurs plan expansion of online crowd sourcing for businesses Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
LastJune,theco-ownersofCrowdtourney. com – Terry and Doug Beech, and Arash Afrooze – were planning to launch a crowd sourcing web business from the Beeches’ basement suites in Burnaby. By September, they had their first client, and this fall, the trio is appearing Dragons’ Den with Designtourney.com, one of the sites under the Crowdtourney.com banner. They filmed their first segment on Tuesday, May 11. Designtourney.com was a finalist for Oxford University’s Saïd Business School Venture Fund competition, awarded in May, and is also a finalist in the New Ventures B.C. competition, awarded Sept. 23. The Beeches and Afrooze went to Abbotsford to audition for Dragons’ Den and, once they were accepted, worked with a producer to develop their act for the show, Doug said. This meant coming up with a clear explanation of what Designtourney.com does. The website uses crowd sourcing, an online technique that distributes contract opportunities to talented people around the world, to help clients find the best graphic designs for their companies. Essentially, a company writes a design brief on the site and puts up a cash prize for the best design submitted, usually between
$100 and $1,000. Graphic designers submit business administration, with distinction, design ideas, and the company picks the from the university. best one, awarding the winner the cash Terry, who finished his degree at Simon prize.

Movers: New local accountants continued from page 11
Darlene Gering, president and CEO of the board, was at the roundtable and said she learned a lot about the challenges the new citizens faced. She asked the new Canadians at her table – from Cambodia, Columbia, Somalia, Australia, Iran, Taiwan, Vietnam and the United States – how the immigration process had gone for them. She heard horror stories, she said, including how an application went missing once it was received, and after a $600 cheque for application processing fees had been cashed. The majority of the issues were bureaucratic bungles, she said, including spelling errors that resulted in mail being misdirected. It took the new citizens between five and eight years to become Canadian, Gering added. “My conclusion is that Citizenship and Immigration Canada needs a complete overhaul,” she said. “It’s a very, very inefficient system.” On a positive note, the new citizens also told her Canada is a very welcoming and inclusive society, she said. “Multiculturalism is truly part of the Canadian identity.”

Lions proud of their commitment to excellence on and off the ﬁeld
s an organization with roots in the local community dating back to 1954, the BC Lions are proud of their commitment to excellence on and off the ﬁeld. Through a number of initiatives aimed at giving back to communities throughout British Columbia, the Leos are dedicated to making a difference at the local level, attending more than 125 events and involving more than 350 total appearances last season alone. In 2009, more than 4,500 items were donated to at least 550 charitable organizations and sponsors, particularly those focused on youth, education and the development of grassroots football in the province. Several initiatives take place at Lions home games throughout the season to raise money for the Lions’ community partners.
50/50 DRAW AT BC LIONS HOME GAMES Last season, sales from 50/50 tickets at BC Lions home games helped raise more than $155,000 for junior football in British Columbia. In 2010, the BC Lions 50/50 draw will continue to support junior football, while contributing funds to Football BC, the BC Secondary School Football Association and the BC Community Football Association. UNITED WAY OF THE LOWER MAINLAND & COURAGE FOR KIDS PROGRAM The BC Lions Football Club is pleased to partner with the United Way of the Lower Mainland for the Courage For Kids program. The BC Lions Courage For Kids program enables less fortunate children and their families to attend a Lions football game at Empire Field. In 2009, more than 10,000 tickets were donated through this initiative, which was made possible by the generosity of our Courage For Kids corporate partners and the United Way of the Lower Mainland. EVERY YARD COUNTS In 2010, the BC Lions will continue to partner with BC Children’s Hospital for the Every Yard Counts program, which provides an opportunity for children receiving ongoing medical treatment to attend a BC Lions home game.
In addition to experiencing the excitement and emotion of a CFL game, the children also have an opportunity to meet their football heroes face-to-face. BC LIONS TACKLE HUNGER Each year, the BC Lions and Purolator team up to “Tackle Hunger” at one home game during the season. On this special night, Lions fans are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item and/or a cash donation to support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. In 2010, the BC Lions will once again team up with Purolator to tackle hunger on Aug. 7 when the BC Lions host the Calgary Stampeders at Empire Field. Don’t forget to bring your donation on game night. BC LIONS CHARITY GOLF CLASSIC Last season, the annual BC Lions Charity Golf Classic helped raise more than $70,000 for the Make-a-Wish The Every Yard Counts program allows children receiving treatment from Foundation and the BC Lions Courage for Kids BC Children’s Hospital to attend a BC Lions home game and meet their program in 2009. football heroes face to face.

MOTORING Post diagnostic a ripoff CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi
Dear Tom and Ray: We recently took our 2001 VW Jetta to the dealer because the Check Engine light was on. They charged us $280 for diagnostics and to replace the air filter and spark plugs. They also wanted $65 to run a “post-repair diagnostic check.” I refused, as it seems to me this should be part of any repair. When we picked up the car, the Check Engine light was still on, and the car ran worse than before. The next morning, they wanted to charge us $118 for another diagnostic. Should I ever pay for a “post-repair diagnostic,” or is this just a pure ripoff? – Craig RAY: Our customers do our post-repair diagnostics for us, Craig. They drive out of the garage, and if we see a wheel fall off, then we know we didn’t fix it.
TOM: You did the same thing, Craig. And I’d have to agree with you, that determining whether you fixed the problem is part of the repair process. So that’s not a reasonable charge. RAY: My guess is that they scanned the car’s computer and got a vague code, like “engine misfire.” That doesn’t always tell you exactly what’s wrong. It gives you a good clue about where to look, but often you have to take it from there. TOM: So they took a reasonable guess with the spark plugs (not sure about the air filter – maybe they were having a special?), but the spark plugs didn’t fix it. What they should have done next is take out the spark plugs (unless you clearly needed new ones anyway), take them off your bill and start trying some other things, like coils, plug wires or a crank angle sensor. RAY: If we had been working on your car, that’s what we would have done (after we sold you a rug shampoo and a
platinum-tipped pine-tree air freshener). And if we eventually fixed the car, we would have charged you for 100 per cent of the diagnostic time, because that was time we spent making educated guesses, installing and removing parts, and trying to solve your problem. That’s only fair. TOM: But we would have charged you only for the actual parts that fixed the car. The rest would have gone back on the shelf. RAY: Maybe these guys were heading in that same direction. Maybe they’re just guilty of having an awful presentation. TOM: I doubt it. I think they were trying to overcharge him. They didn’t solve the problem, and they needed to do more diagnostic work. But they should have just said that and offered to take back any unnecessary parts. They need to learn that honesty is always the best policy. RAY: Right. Especially once you get caught. ◆ Visit the Car Talk website at www.cartalk.com.

Steelers camp has lots of youth Just seven players expected back for upcoming season Tom Berridge sports editor
The Grandview Steelers kicked off its 2010/11 Pacific International Junior Hockey League season a day before summer officially started. The Burnaby-based Steelers held their annual junior evaluation camp at the Burnaby Winter Club last weekend, which culminated in a rousing allstar game Sunday. Team Black outscored Team White 4-1 in the final period to post a 6-3 win in the showcase game. “There are a couple of kids who we’d like to sign to cards, but the No. 1 thing for these kids is to play Junior A (hockey),” said Steelers head coach Aldo Bruno. With the B.C. major midget league allowing more older-age players to play this season, Bruno says there is little indication of a drop-off in player numbers at the weekend camp. “This year is probably our youngest camp so far. We’ve definitely seen a lot of 16-year-olds and a ton of 17-year-olds,” Bruno said. “We’re still limited to two 16-year-olds, but I don’t think the 17-yearold situation is going to

change at all.” Player numbers at the camp were again well over the 100 mark – despite a similar camp being held across the Fraser River in North Delta – enough to stock six full teams. Grandview will be starting the upcoming junior B season from scratch after losing four players
to graduation and all but seven others to the junior A ranks. “It’s something we’re used to,” Bruno added. “It’s a rebuilding year for us, and that’s what we want. It’s one of those 50/50 things. The reason I do this is for that reason only.” Bruno says putting
together an entertaining and winning team is important, but developing players to move on to higher levels is foremost in his mind. He believes by moving players through his program, the better players coming along will also want to be affiliated with the Steelers.
“The first thing we say to the kids is ‘Hopefully you only have one year with us. If you are here for two years, we’re a little disappointed.’ It’s about moving these kids forward,” Bruno said. The junior B Steelers will hold their main preseason camp, beginning Aug. 12.
Second straight win dampens Thunder Tom Berridge
The Burnaby Lakers won their second straight Western Lacrosse Association game at home following an 11-7 victory over the visiting Langley Thunder Friday. The win, coupled with New Westminster’s 12-9 loss to firstplace Victoria on Friday, left the bottom six senior A clubs within four points of each other. For the first time in a long while, the WLA looks open to any team that can bring a consistency to the floor. And while Burnaby’s twogame winning streak is a start,
Golf Burnaby golfburnaby.net
Out of the ashes to fourth place
the way the game flowed from period to period was anything but consistent. The Lakers opened with a 4-2 lead despite being outshot by the Thunder 21-14. Calvin Craig, with just his second goal of the season, and Cam Sedgwick, on a wicked side-arm screened shot, gave the home team a 2-1 lead. Later in the period, Chase Williams and Shaun Dhaliwal, less than a minute apart, put Burnaby ahead by two. Newcomer Scott Tinning increased the Lakers’ advantage to three goals with a laser from far out to the top corner to start the

second period. But the lead was fleeting. Langley answered with four straight goals to take the lead into the final frame. But again the pendulum swung, this time in Burnaby’s favour. Williams started things off, sparking a six-goal Burnaby reply, tying the game 6-6 with a low screen shot that beat Langley starter Kevin Croswell five-hole. Minutes later, Kerry Susheski put the Lakers in the lead, and Tinning, with his eighth of the year and second of the game, potted the eventual game-winner with another sizzling shot from a distance.

“What we’re trying to do before the game is get more focused and get our heads in the game,” said Williams, who finished with a three-point night. “Everyone is starting to figure out their roles. No one is playing out of character. … Now it’s just clicking, and hopefully we can keep it going.” That will likely be a strategy that all WLA clubs will hope to employ in order to stay in the mix. Burnaby remained in a lastplace tie with Langley and Nanaimo despite the pair of recent wins, all with six points.

Michael Valiante of Burnaby finished just off the podium just two weeks after his race car was completely destroyed in a fire. Valiante and co-driver Brian Frisselle guided their Michael Shank Racing Ford Dallara to a fourth-place finish at the EMCO Gears Classic in Lexington, Ohio Saturday. The feat, at the seventh stop on the Grand American sports car circuit, was all the more incredible following a fire that destroyed the team’s Riley chassis in Watkins Glen, New York earlier in the month. The car was rebuilt in seven days and remarkably qualified in fifth place among the Daytona protype cars in the Rolex Series. Valiante took over the car from Frisselle and had the No. 6 Shank car in first place for 14 laps before having to slow down to conserve fuel to avert a final pit stop. “Considering how slow we were in the first session, nearly five seconds off the pace, and considering all the work it took by the entire team to even be here, this race was a victory,” said Valiante in a Michael Shank press release. “We finished fourth due to fuel economy strategy, but we had a car that should have finished second, based on pure speed.” Second-place was taken by another Michael Shank Racing car, a Ford Riley driven by John Pew and Ozz Negri. It was the second runner-up finish of the season for the No. 60 car, moving them up to third place in team standings. Valiante and Frisselle take up the No. 6 spot in overall team racing. Next stop on the series circuit is the Daytona 250 in Daytona, Florida on the U.S. July 4 holiday weekend.

Lakers: League has improved a lot continued from page 25
New Westminster, Coquitlam and the Maple Ridge Burrards all shared second place with 10 points, just four behind the league-leading Shamrocks following the Adanacs’ 13-9 win over Maple Ridge on Sunday. “The calibre of the league is really developing out here,” Williams added. “The league is really improving a lot. It’s really challenging and fun. The young guys, the veterans coming back, guys from the East and guys from the States are coming in – it’s just competitive.” And for Burnaby’s youthful lineup that is finally finding its feet in all of this, that is good news, said Williams. Second-year goalie Scott Lowe posted his third win, stopping 37 Langley shots.
Tinning led all scorers with two goals and four helpers, while rookie Trevor Moore chipped in with five assists. Cam Sedgwick helped out in his second game back with the Lakers with a four-point outing. “It’s good for everyone,” he added. “We’re all a little closer, and you know what? It doesn’t matter any more. Everyone is on the same page and having fun. That’s what it’s all about, right?” The Lakers next two games are against the surging Burrards, who are 4-2 in their last six WLA starts. Burnaby hosts the Burrards at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Friday at 7:45 p.m. The Lakers then travel to Maple Ridge for Sunday tilt, beginning at 6:45 p.m.

Retirement Living Options
The right time, the right place how do you decide? Today’s seniors have more service and lifestyle choices than previous generations. For active seniors in their 70’s, 80’s and beyond, it can be difficult to decide if, or when, a move from a long-time family home to a retirement residence is right for them. Why is that? After all, they have made excellent and timely choices over the years -- for their family, in business, in life. The answer can be straightforward if there is a setback in health or mobility, however if still active, it can be as complex and as individual as they are. Because there are more choices today than ever before, it can make the decision even more difficult – or perhaps easier - once they and their families decide to investigate the options! Planning will help ensure you make the best of all stages of life, especially your golden years. It is important to start looking at options while still active and able to enjoy the services and amenities offered by various retirement residences. Many offer private and spacious rental accommodations complete with concierge services, elegant surroundings, meals, amenities and activities; others provide nursing care and long term care, others a mix of both. Monthly rates and what they include can vary from one residence to another, so ask questions when you visit, spend time to take in the atmosphere of the various facilities and observe how staff interact with residents. Most importantly, envision how you or your loved one will make the transition to their new home and lifestyle, and how monthly costs match your budget. There are a number of retirement directories available that provide a wealth of information, including locations, options and services, which give you a great starting point for reference. Making the decision is a lot easier and a lot less stressful when you do your homework.
LOVE life. LIVE here.® Come and discover the fresh, new spaces at Amica at Rideau Manor.
