Water park on track

Construction delayed by red tape, but it’s underway again Andrew Fleming staff reporter

It’s looking like the new waterpark at Ernie Winch Park might just be ready to open before the summer ends after all. The city’s department of parks, culture and recreation was given $250,000 in April 2009 to complete the second phase of construction of a water spray feature at the Burnaby park, but progress has been stalled for months, forcing neighbourhood kids wanting to cool off to look elsewhere. “It’s a disgrace,” said local resident Don Johnstone. “They started last fall, and they’ve still got a great big hole in the ground. They’ve got rebar and fences down and kids crawling all around it, and it’s a heck of a mess.” The lengthy construction delay is being blamed on bureaucratic difficulties in getting all the necessary permits from the Fraser Health Authority. “Unfortunately, it took four months to get a permit from Fraser Health,” explained city parks designer Meredith Botta. “The building permits basically do with water, sewer Water park Page 4

Eleven-year-old Justin Heussner had heard the family story of an old convict cemetery in his Forest Grove neighbourhood for years. But it wasn’t until he had a school writing assignment that he decided to investigate it further. Heussner’s grandfather, the late Art

Burgess, was a Burnaby RCMP officer. He had talked about how, as a constable, he had been taken to an area near Underhill Avenue and Broadway by his sergeant. After hiking along a forest trail for about two blocks’ distance, the sergeant showed him a graveyard in the bush he said was for criminals who had been hanged. Burgess, who worked at Oakalla prison in Burnaby and witnessed the last hanging in British Columbia in 1959, never forgot the trip to the graveyard and spoke about it often to his daughter and son-in-law, Shanna and Peter Heussner. “He had so many interesting stories about his time on the force,” Peter says.

Convicts were often buried in unmarked graves and not in public cemeteries, as Justin noted in his report. He researched the area at the Burnaby archives and found that the Vancouver City Cemetery was established in 1912 in that area. The information from the archives states that 10 indigents were buried in the cemetery in 1932 but were exhumed in 1960, and the land was sold to the province in 1964. The archives’ maps do not say anything about other bodies buried on the site. In the maps Justin got from the city archives, the boundaries of the cemetery go Cemetery Page 4

Sculpture unveiled at Discovery Day

Last Sunday marked the 26th year for the Discovery Day Festival, the largest community grassroots festival in Burnaby. This year, roughly 1,000 people came out for a day of fun activities. One of the featured events was the unveiling of Vitality, a sculptural piece by Coast Salish artist Thomas Cannell in the Shadbolt

from the area where Underhill Avenue and Broadway meet, along Broadway and up toward Gaglardi Way, ending just under the oil pipeline. The area within the borders of the cemetery on the map includes Forest Grove Elementary School. But Justin isn’t afraid of the history of his neighbourhood, he says. “It’s just really interesting to know that stuff is by my house,” he explains. “Something that major and big.” His friends are also interested in the area, he added. “At first, they don’t really believe me, then I show them the maps,” Justin says. His family has since gone exploring the forest in the area and has noticed a number of sunken pits in the woods. “One day, we decided to look for physical evidence of the site, so me, my dad and mom went hiking into the bushes just east of Underhill and just south of the townhouse complexes neighbouring

the school,” Justin wrote in his report. “We hiked in and bushwhacked into the bush led by a GPS and a satellite map, and smack-dab right in the middle of a whole bunch of prickle bushes, we found a whole bunch of pits the same size as coffins, in the ground within sight of the townhouses.” Justin’s after-school care program, located near Forest Grove Elementary, takes the children walking to a spot in the woods where there are a few shallow pits and a trench. The kids believe the pits are former graves, he says. “It doesn’t make me scared,” Justin says. “It’s just kind of unique.” Researching the story has brought Justin closer to the grandfather he never knew, he says. He now feels a stronger connection with Burgess, who was the longest serving Burnaby RCMP member when he retired as a staff sergeant. “I actually am thinking about also joining the police force,” Justin says, adding he also likes the idea of flying as a career.

Monday. The new waterpark is set to be a significant upgrade over its predecessor, with 12 sprayheads embedded in a concrete apron along with a nearby arbour and seating area. Botta said he hoped the park might finally be ready to open by the end of the month but said there are “no guarantees on that.”

Other musicians Nelson admires include Jack White

of the White Stripes, and the Kings of Leon. Technology is important for staying connected with the band’s fans, he says. The band has a strong online presence, with Facebook and Twitter accounts, as well as an online store on its website, www.promiseofthereal. com. “It’s really important for us to keep up with people

on Facebook,” Nelson says. Band members may be starting a blog in the near future, he adds. The band is working on an album that is almost finished, Nelson says. The plan is to hopefully release it in the fall. Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real will be playing this year’s Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival. Taj Mahal, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Serena Ryder, Colin Linden and Little Miss Higgins will also play the festival, held

Lukas Nelson, son of well-known country singer Willie Nelson, has had no shortage of musical inspiration in his life. His band, Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real, has been on tour with B.B. King for the past month and has toured with the blues legend off and on for four years. “If my dad’s Yoda, then B.B. King is Obi-Wan Kenobi,” Nelson says. The latest tour, which began July 7, has gone well, he adds, with Promise of the Real getting standing ovations on a nightly basis. The 21-year-old singer, songwriter and guitarist considers King and his bandmates mentors. The two bands have become like family while touring, he says. Nelson grew up touring with his father on his legendary Honeysuckle Rose bus, along with brother Micah Nelson, who performs percussion and creates art on stage at some Promise of the Real performances. Nelson is influenced by his father’s music, he says, and listened to it more than any other musician, aside from Bob Dylan. “I’ve just been able to watch him,” Nelson says, adding he saw his father perform all the time and learned from him. “I watched his stage presence.” His father taught him to play guitar, and he began performing with him when he was 13 years old. Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real formed after Nelson’s first band, 40 Points, disbanded in 2007 due to “a conflict of distance.” Promise of the Real is comprised of drummer Anthony LoGerfo, bassist Corey McCormick and former 40 Points percussionist Tato Melgar, as well as brother Micah. Nelson is the songwriter for the band. He has written lyrics since he was a child. Songs come to him fully formed, with everything from the string section to the lyrics, he says. “I let it come from the

The agency said the officer was off duty and therefore it was not a workplace injury. The legal wrangle has recently ended in the officer’s favour. A WorkSafe B.C. appeals tribunal has agreed that officers, who have sworn an oath to keep the

peace, can place themselves on duty to prevent a crime. The ideals of service – of putting the security and safety of others above their own – is the source of the public’s respect for police officers. Police who consider themselves on duty at all times, whenever they are needed, are the kind of officers we need. And a ruling like this one goes a small way to acknowledging their work.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Public will have say on pay raise Dear Editor:

Re: Mayor gets a raise, Burnaby NOW, July 14. I read that Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan and council have just given themselves a big fat pay raise. In the case of the mayor, I understand this is 17 per cent and of the councillors almost 10 per cent – if you include their new $300 per month car allowance. No matter how good a job they are doing, this type of inflationary increase is unwarranted. Times are tough, and many people are getting no increase at all or even having to accept pay cuts. This type of greed sets an appalling example for the public.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Funds should go to Burnaby continued from page 6

Recently the mayor included his annual “golf tournament” on a community calendar sent out to the public. This golf tournament is nothing more than a fundraiser for his NDP-affiliated political party, the Burnaby Citizens’ Association. There is no denying that political parties are often involved in fundraising. However, it is done as a private event so as to not pressure people to feel they need to donate. Let’s compare our neighbours with how things are done in Burnaby. North Shore Mayors’ Golf Tournament raises $116,000 for North Shore community organizations. The mayor of Coquitlam endorses the Coquitlam Classic Golf Tournament which raises money for the CoquitlamMaillardville Heritage Trust for Coquitlam organizations. What money was raised by Burnaby’s

mayor for Burnaby community organizations? What a sham! This Burnaby Citizens’ Association (BCA) fundraiser hides behind the mayor’s golf cart. Payments are even made to the mayor’s golf tournament – another deceitful ploy – with “proceeds to the BCA.” And now this fundraiser is being advertised in the taxpayer-paid City of Burnaby’s official calendar sent to all households and businesses. Mayor Corrigan’s response? Let’s blame the staff. It is time the mayor stood up and took some responsibility. From Day 1, this mayor’s golf tournament was engineered to look like anything but a political fundraiser, and he knows it. The $150,000 proceeds from the mayor’s annual golf tournament should be donated to Burnaby’s charities and organizations. And, the BCA/NDP should reimburse the city for the printing of the calendar. Burnaby has its “Golfgate.” Harry Bloy, Burnaby-Lougheed MLA

constant refrain from the Liberals. Government services would naturally be squeezed by the mounting debt. Or so the argument went. So what has happened to the debt while the B.C. Liberals have been in power? Has it gone down, or at least flatlined? Well, no. The total government debt was $34 billion when the B.C. Liberals took power, and it is forecast to hit almost $53 million next year. So much for the hysterical arguments heard in Opposition. The NDP’s general fiscal competence was derided by a sneering Liberal Opposition, yet the B.C. Liberals have shown equal ability in piling up huge budget deficits or tabling false budgets (the pre-election budget was a real whopper, as the latest

public accounts reveal in great detail). The list goes on: vicious attacks on the NDP over the issue of child protection, contrasted to fighting with the independent children’s representative over service cuts and lack of accountability on that very issue. Then there’s granddaddy of them all: an oft-repeated promise not to sell B.C. Rail, and then doing just that in a questionable transaction (to say the least, given there is a criminal trial mixed up with it). Piling up the hypocrisy begins to lend a stench to this government. Throw in the perceived deceitfulness associated with the HST, and the air is getting fairly ripe around the B.C. Liberals right now. Will New Democrats learn a lesson from this? With electoral victory in 2013 seeming more

likely by the day, the NDP would be wise to resist the temptation of cloaking themselves with moral piety, of pretending everything in government is so simple, and that everything the B.C. Liberals do these days is horrible. NDP leader Carole James has smartly backed away from automatically scrapping the HST. And the NDP hasn’t exactly said it will forgo any of the gambling expansion either. The NDP will need to provide some coherent, credible alternative policies to the Liberals. But if they overplay their hand, and make unrealistic statements like the B.C. Liberals did before they formed government, New Democrats may find themselves a one-term administration only.

City facing high number of retirements in 2010 Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

The City of Burnaby has seen 16 of its staff members retire since January, for a total of 413 combined years of service, according to a report from the city’s human resources department. There were 17 retirements for all of 2009, with staff retirees completing a combined 515 years of service. But this isn’t indicative of a large increase for this year, according to the city’s director of human resources, Kim Munro. “A lot of people do retire at the beginning of the year,” she explained, adding that those retiring often make travel plans and plans for the summer, so they are more likely to stop working in January. “In the first six months, we do see more retirements than in the last six months.” In 2009, the average tenure was about 30 years, while the average tenure for the past six months was about 24 years. The city is able to retain employees and is a popular place to work, Munro said. “We have so many long-

standing employees,” she said. “Lots of people are interested in working with the City of Burnaby.” The dedication of this year’s retirees is quite evident, she added. “Just look at the years of service,” Munro said. “Obviously these employees were with the city for a very long time.” Kenji Ito, the assistant director of current planning, retired on April 30 after 38 years of service. Ito started out as a city planner, Level 1, on June 19, 1972. He held his position as assistant director since 1999. Mayor Derek Corrigan presented him with a retirement gift at a celebration of his service at the Burnaby Mountain Golf Course on Apr. 28. Lorne Graham, superintendent of roads and drainage, retired on June 25 after 36 years of service. Graham began working for the city as a labourer with the engineering department on Dec. 10, 1974. He became superintendent in 1990. The third longest serving city retiree of the 2010 group is Kulwant Johal. Johal, a third level clerk

with the tax and collections department, retired on Jan. 31 after 35 years of service. She started working in information services at the finance department on

Aug. 19, 1974, and moved to her position in the tax and collections department in 1989. Two other city employees were with Burnaby

for more than 30 years – Sharon Lawson and Ken Smibert. Both retired from the position of sub-foreman of trades, specifically hor-

ticulture, after joining the parks, recreation and cultural department in 1978. Lawson and Smibert both retired on Jan. 31, after 32 years of service.

Simply delectable, a sentiment echoed by the chef himself. “That’s my favourite dish. I first had it in Italy, and I knew I wanted to have it on the menu here,” Chow said. “I love seafood, and it’s a great dish.” If Chow has any regrets about Amorosa, it’s that he can’t spend as much time there as he did before opening Santali. “I’m lucky to have Allen, who does a great job running Amorosa,” said Chow. “He knows that if anything comes up, I’m not too far away. “I think the secret to the success here is we have the best quality, quantity, price and service,” Chow said. “As a chef, I love it when people compliment us on our food and we see them coming back.

Burnaby’s Bonsor Recreation Complex is offering yoga sessions that take the edge of a long stressful day without the chatty instructors, overcrowded classes and

They are also relatively cheap: just $7.95 a visit, and even cheaper if you buy a 10-visit pass at $71.60. There are various types of classes – hatha, power and kundalini, for example. I had a chance to try some of the classes, and the nicest thing is the instructors keep the talking to a minimum, which

facilitates the relaxation process, and the large, airy studio tends to be less crowded. For a class schedule, call 604-4391860.

More fond memories of Empire Stadium

Last week we featured the winning entry in our Fondest Memories of Empire Stadium contest. This week, we are pleased to present submissions from the runners-up. Once again, thank you to everyone who participated. From Janice Bobic, Burnaby: I remember the first BC Lions football game I went to at the Empire Stadium, in 1958 I believe, when I was 10 years old. I sat with my mom, dad and sister on the grassy hill on the north side on a pleasant sunny evening. As we were sitting there, eagerly anticipating the start of the game, suddenly some jets came screaming overhead directly over the stadium from the north. I began screaming frantically, trying to hide under my dad’s arm, and crying, “They’re going to drop bombs on us!” Dad said, “No, no, no, that’s part of the show.” My fear gradually subsided and I recovered from this “trauma” as the football game started, and excitement took over as the players ran out while the announcer called their names. I remember Willie Fleming — how he could run — and he was the family favourite. In a subsequent year, we received some original numbered photographs autographed by Willie Fleming and the other Lions players. Also we received another set of photos of autographed pictures, individually numbered, with corporate sponsors printed on the backs. I still have all these photos, and eventually plan to sell them by auction. I was there at Empire Stadium when the Beatles came to Vancouver, and Diana Ross and the Supremes opened the show with their metallic gold skinny dresses flashing in the lights. My sister and I were sitting on the northeast bleachers, but with all the girls screaming throughout the whole show, we never heard a bit of the Beatles’ music. As we were heading out after the show, our mom and auntie were waiting, standing outside the stadium door when the Beatles ran right in front of them making their getaway from the stadium. From Gordon Lew, New Westminster In the late seventies/early eighties, as a little kid, I was just learning to love and understand the game of CFL football, the only sport that my Dad watched ever since arriving in Canada. We would watch all the games, especially the Lions on TV, but we could not afford to buy tickets to watch them at Empire Stadium. Soon, they had a promotion where you could go get free admission into Empire Stadium if you presented a Nalley’s chip bag

or box. I remember going down to the Woodward’s Food Floor with my Dad to buy our Nalley’s chips, and then using it to watch the Lions games. I remember sitting in the end zone on a hard park bench, on the north end of the stadium, but I did not care as we were watching the Lions live. I remember many kids behind the benches where we were sitting playing their own game of football on the grass with a Nerf football, having a great time. They probably missed half the game! There were a lot of dads with their kids there. There were sunny days, rainy days (too many) and many cold nights. In the winter, I remember my dad would always buy me a hot chocolate in the third quarter, just before the concession stand behind us would close, so that I would make it OK to the end of the game. I remember watching and idolizing many exciting players: Leon Bright, Larry Key, Joe Paopao, Glen Jackson, Larry Crawford, Lui Passaglia — so many great players and so many exciting games. But my favourite memory of Empire Stadium was having my dad bring me down to the stadium to watch the games with him, father and son hanging out together watching the Lions. From Leslie Cummings, Delta: My fondest memory of Empire Stadium is back in the mid-’50s when I was about nine years old. My dad and his friend were going to a BC Lions football game and I asked if I could go, too. My dad looked surprised that his little girl would want to go to a football game, but after just a moment’s hesitation, he said, “Yes!” Of course I knew nothing about football, but it was simply the fact that I got a “date” with my dad when my two sisters had to stay home with Mom. I remember feeling so grown-up watching the game with these two men, but the real excitement was to come







@A DGAH<= B EG? ><F=I


when the game was over. Dad had bought me a drink during the game, but I didn’t know what to do with the paper cup. I didn’t see a garbage can anywhere, so as we were walking out among the crowd, I just tossed my cup into the air ahead of me. It hit a man on the back of his head and he stopped, turned around and said, “Hello!” to no one in particular. My dad and his friend stopped in their tracks, looking horrified! I thought I was really in for it, but suddenly they both starting laughing like crazy. Dad said to me, “Do you know who you just hit on the head with that cup?” “No,” I answered, feeling terrible about the entire thing. Dad told me, “That was Ted Reynolds!” For those who might not know, Ted Reynolds was one of the most famous local sports broadcasting legends who, sadly, passed away last year at the age of 84. I don’t know if he ever remembered being hit on the head at that game, but I know that I’ll never forget it.

Honoured: Bill McCarthy, above, and Rev. Francis Chang, top right, are receiving the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice Cross from Pope Benedict for their service to the Roman Catholic Church.

Pope honours two Burnaby men Businessman, retired priest among 21 people receiving honours Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Pope Benedict XVI is honouring two Burnaby men for their outstanding service to the church. Rev. Francis Chang and Bill McCarthy are receiving the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice Cross. The cross is the highest papal award that a layperson can receive from the Pope. “It was totally unexpected, and I’m greatly honoured and humbled,” McCarthy said.

“I’ve always considered it an honour to give back to your community, organization and your church to the best of your ability if so asked. Doing one’s best has always been sufficient for myself. “To be recognized in this matter, because it was so unexpected, leaves me at a loss for words – which is very unusual for myself.” McCarthy, whose business columns run in the Burnaby NOW, was singled out for offering financial expertise on real estate and construction development matters to the archdiocese. McCarthy attends St. Francis de Sales church in Burnaby. Chang, now retired, was a pastor at St. Theresa’s parish in Burnaby for

37 years and has been a priest for 55 years. “He is well-known for his tireless service and dedicated ministry that includes visiting the sick in hospitals, private homes and other institutions,” a press release notes. “Even in retirement, he continues to minister to the sick.” The two men will receive their awards at a special presentation at the Holy Rosary Cathedral in Vancouver on Oct. 3. In all, 21 people from across the Lower Mainland are receiving papal honours, either the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice Cross or the Benemerenti Medal.

Fire hall set for renovations Fire Station No. 1 has been approved for space improvements and renovations but not a complete overhaul. Burnaby city council has approved spending for the design phase of the

minor project, at a cost of $60,000, for the station at 4867 Sperling Ave. The project would create new floor space, in a pre-fabricated modular building, for classroom training. This would then free up floor space

for a female dormitory, and possibly an exercise area as well. The city has set aside a total of $1.5 million in its 2010 financial plan for renovations to the fire station.

ISO 9001 adoption increases sales and survivability: study

Member Spotlight

1500 Club: Unique Networking Opportunities

Latin culture and business


A recent Harvard study on the adoption of the ISO 9001 standard for quality management systems finds higher growth rates for sales, employment, payroll and average annual earnings in businesses that have adopted the standard compared to nonadopters. The 2010 study of nearly 1000 California companies underscores the financial significance of adopting industry recognized quality standards as a way to increase corporate survivability. According to the study, ISO adopters had far lower organizational death rates than a control group of matched companies, and annual wages were 7.5 per cent higher than their matches. “Not only can ISO 9001 adoption help companies achieve industry compliance and establish best practices, it can drive company growth, support innovation and augment the quality of an organization’s products and services,” said Anne-Marie Pizzitelli, Marketing Manager at BSI Group Canada. Quality standards adoption can send a signal to consumers about the quality of a manufactured product or the performance of an organization’s quality management. Pizzitelli pointed out that there are many standards and a wide variety of certifications

available. Standardization can help organizations achieve higher levels of business excellence, including greater corporate social responsibility and environmental sustainability. An example of this variety is OHSAS 18001, one of BSI’s popular standards, which outlines best practice for occupational health and safety. Pizzitelli acknowledged Burnaby’s knowledge-based economy, and suggested that if more ICT businesses adopted industry-specific standards like ISO 20000 for information technology service management, it would support the growth of the local tech sector. “Companies of all sizes can benefit from standardization,” added Pizzitelli. Statistics show that growth in employment, sales and payroll is especially significant for smaller companies. “Despite the numerous bottom-line benefits of quality standards adoption, many businesses incorrectly see it as an expense rather than an investment,” said Sam Brownlee, BSI’s Account Manager in BC who recently joined the Burnaby Board of Trade. Brownlee invites local businesses to an October information seminar called Understanding ISO 9001 in Vancouver.

1500 Club tours EA The Burnaby Board of Trade’s 1500 Club held their July meeting at Electronic Arts in Burnaby, where 40 business professionals went on a tour of the videogame publisher’s award-winning studio.

Burnaby Board of Trade

Ambassador Program If you have ever been to a BBOT event, you may have noticed that some members seem to network effortlessly and appear to know everyone in the room.

Their goal is to help fast-track your networking by providing you with introductions to other Board of Trade members while you are at a BBOT event. This brand-new membership benefit gives you an added advantage at BBOT events, since you can instantly begin leveraging the connections that make BBOT Ambassadors effective relationship builders.

Titan IT is focused on connecting the business community through superior engagement and positive networking experiences.

I joined the BBOT in in February at a cost of about $250. The organization affords me the opportunity to get out and meet interesting people in and around Burnaby at events once or twice a month. Since joining the BBOT, I can RANDY LUTICHOTTA directly attribute earning CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT 50 times the membership fee( $10,000-15,000) and I have been able to develop continuing revenue streams of about 4 times the membership fee, coming in regularly every month. At one event, I met the CEO of an internet marketing company, Joe Roberts of Mindware Internet Solutions, who needed help getting his personal and corporate tax situation under control. He also needed help with accounting and record keeping tasks. Similarly at another event, I met a person who owns restaurant and real-estate development corporations who needed help catching up on taxes and establishing an accounting system. Here is an excerpt from a testimonial I received from one client (Mindware): “I was worried about my past tax situation and unsure how to best grow my company’s business and integrate my personal tax situation. The worries were distracting me from my business. I needed cost effective help immediately, to avoid trouble with CRA. Randy Lutic-Hotta, Chartered Accountant was able to save me thousands of dollars immediately and tens of thousands in future tax liability. I highly recommend Randy to anyone needing an excellent accountant and problem solver. In fact I have already passed his name to two clients.” Randy Lutic-Hotta is this month’s Burnaby Board of Trade Member of the Month. Contact Randy via email or call 778.968.2850

Health and Wellness Show Earlier in the month, the Burnaby Board of Trade held its annual Health and Wellness Show and it was a well-attended success! This year’s venue was the beautiful National Nikkei Museum and Heritage Centre in Burnaby. Attendees received free samples, discovered new and innovative health products, learned from an interesting address by keynote speaker Terry Small, and explored new ways of leading healthy lifestyles. The yoga demonstrations and massage stations were also popular attractions. The BBOT is looking forward to next year’s Health & Wellness show which is sure to be bigger and even better than this year’s. Thanks to all the vendors and businesses who joined us in the show and thank you to everyone who attended and made this event such a success!

Make your message social

One of the most cost-effective ways to build awareness of your organization’s message is to make your message social. When your information is accessible, easily sharable and worthy of being shared, your organization is positioned to reap the rewards of social networks. To share news of a recent immigrant integration initiative, the BBOT and the Burnaby Intercultural Planning Table hired EXL Films to help tell the story through an on-going series of 4 minute video clips that documented the project. Telling the story through video enabled the BBOT to synthesize a complex issue into manageable narratives that could be shared online through a growing network of community partners.

Is your drinking water safe? Environmental health officers are asking for your help in identifying small water systems in the Fraser Health region. A Fraser Health press release notes that the B.C. ombudsman recently issued recommendations on how the provincial government and regional health authorities can improve the processes that ensure the safety of drinking water. One of the recommendations was for health authorities to increase their efforts to identify and regulate small water systems. A small water system is a water supply that serves up to 500 individuals during any 24-hour period. It includes two or more single-family residences connected to the same water supply or a commercial establishment such as a gas station, campsite or lodge that has its own water supply. If you receive your drinking water from a small water system that is not being regulated, contact one of the drinking water program environmental health officers at Fraser Health, 1-866-749-7900.

Ladies and gentlemen: The washrooms at the Cactus Club at Market Crossing have earned their place in the top five in a contest to find Canada’s best bathrooms.

Fancy facilities among country’s best Andrew Fleming staff reporter

Local loos are among the top five finalists in an inaugural contest to honour Canada’s top toilets. The Cactus Club Cafe commodes at 7320 Market Crossing made the final cut, announced last week in a competition sponsored by Cincinnati-based Cintas Corporation, who incorrectly identified them as being located in Vancouver. The annual contest has run for several years in the U.S., but this is the first of its kind in Canada. The fancy facilities found near the intersection of Marine Way and Byrne Road earned the acclaim for their “padded furniture, televisions, Solus concrete

wall tiles, smoked glass floor-to-ceiling stall doors and hardwood walls.” “We like to think of this contest as a fun, lighthearted way of drawing the public’s attention to the very important issue of restroom hygiene,” said Cintas marketing manager Leslie Molin. “There is no question that restroom hygiene plays a big role in determining customer satisfaction and repeat business.” According to Cintas’ website, 95 per cent of people surveyed say they avoid establishments with unclean washrooms. Contest surveyor David Brandt said there were more than 100 nominees in the commode competition, which was then narrowed

down to five. Vancouver’s new Shangri-La Hotel on Georgia Street also earned praise for its posh potties, while the remaining facility finalists are all found in high-end Toronto restaurants. “There’s two very simple criteria,” said Brandt. “One is very specific in that it’s got to be impeccably clean because that’s what this contest is about, and the other is very broad in that it has to be appealing and memorable.” The first Cactus Club Café opened in North Vancouver in 1988 and the company has since grown to 16 locations, becoming known in the process for their luxurious washrooms. “I know it sounds cli-

ché, but it’s an honour just to be nominated with such a calibre of restaurants,” said Cactus Club interior designer and project manager Anna Walentowicz. “Especially for a collection of restaurants like ourselves, we don’t often get put in that level or category.” Walentowicz said that while the South Burnaby location’s thrones may be considered to be the jewel in the restaurant chain’s proverbial crown, they aren’t a radical step above those found in most of their newer facilities. “Our new generations of stores all have something relatively similar, but we try to keep each location a bit unique from the rest.” She added that the loca-

tion near Boundary and Lougheed will soon be getting a major renovation. “So stay tuned for that one.” The local Cactus Club cans can potentially take

Safer streets Burnaby city council has approved a number of roadwork projects this summer, including the reconstruction project on Douglas Road. The project is estimated to cost $3.1 million and is intended to improve the road between the Still Creek bridge and Goring Street. The project is designed to make the street safer for pedestrians and improve vehicle-turning lanes, while replacing the deteriorating pavement, according to an engineering report. Streetlights will also be installed, and traffic signals and the rail crossing will be upgraded. – Janaya Fuller-Evans

Burnaby Lakers continue high/low lacrosse playoff ride Tom Berridge sports editor

Few people, including the Burnaby Lakers themselves, could have foreseen this result coming. The last-place senior A Lakers shocked the Western Lacrosse Association-leading New Westminster Salmonbellies 10-4 at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre Friday night. Veteran Cam Sedgwick and rookie Scott Tinning tallied eight points apiece, including a pair of goals each, to lead the on-again, off-again Lakers to their fifth win in what has to be the craziest WLA season in years. Burnaby weathered a storm of relentless attacking in their own end for the first five minutes of play before finding its stride. Rory McDade opened the scoring for the Lakers on a pick-andgo with Sedgwick on the left side against Salmonbellie keeper Tyler

Richards. Less than a minute later, Lakers’ captain Bryan Safarik scored an unassisted goal in transition after rookie Burnaby keeper Drew Dickie had stopped a trizzie of point-blank shots by New Westminster at the other end of the floor. Dickie was unfortunate to not receive a game star, despite stopping 47 shots for only his second win in the Burnaby cage. The 22-year-old former Nanaimo senior B goalie and Winnipeg native took it in stride, remarking he remembers his first junior A game in Burlington, Ont. when he was heckled with “Go back to Manitoba.” “Everyone was ecstatic we beat New Westminster but we have to get past it. But anything is possible,” said Dickie, who has a third-best 8.53 goals against average and a league-best .813 save percentage to date. “I don’t think anyone in our position has beaten both New West and Victoria. Now we just have to steal a couple of games from

Coquitlam.” That outcome is anyone’s guess after a Coquitlam win in Nanaimo and a Langley victory at home over second-place Victoria on Saturday. The Lakers extended their 2-0 advantage in the middle period to 60 before New Westminster’s Corbyn Tao tallied his first of two in the game. In the final period, Burnaby continued to outscore the visitors 32, including a pair from third star Calvin Craig. “We always prepare for the best. We beat Victoria decisively, I thought and I don’t think any team in the league is better than us. I think we proved it tonight,” said Craig, who had kind words for Sedgwick after the game. “I grew up idolizing him and now I get to play with him. He spreads the floor so much.” The Lakers are 4-3 with Sedgwick

Canada opens u-17 worlds with win Tom Berridge sports editor

Canada won its opening game at the world under-17 cadette women’s basketball championships in France. The Canadian team, with co-captain Lexi Der of Burnaby, defeated Turkey 82-73 in its opening game at the world championships in Rodez, France on July 16. Der scored 15 points on six-of-10 shooting, while nabbing three offensive rebounds for the winner. Canada dropped its next two Group A matches, falling 87-80 to Japan on July 17 and 114-57 to group leader United States on July 18. Der played just 13 minutes in the loss to Japan, scoring just one basket while grabbing seven

rebounds before fouling out of the contest. Against the U.S., the St. Thomas More Collegiate senior had four points, four rebounds and two blocked shots. The prelimnary round continued with a game against Russia Tuesday (after NOW deadlines). Quarter-final play begins on Friday, with semifinals and the championship final game scheduled for Sunday. Last year, Der was named to Canada’s u-16 teams that won the silver medal at the world qualifying tournament in Mexico. Two other B.C. girls, Shailie Dheensaw of Victoria and Erin Chambers of Mission, are on the national cadette women’s squad.

Women take bronze at wheelchair worlds Canada defeated Australia 59-49 to win the bronze medal at the world women’s wheelchair basketball championships in Birmingham, England July 17. Canada lost 68-58 to the eventual world champions United States in the semifinals a day earlier. The U.S. edged Germany 55-53 in the title game. Canada’s only other loss was a 59-52 defeat to the Aussies in the final group game on July 12. The women’s national team, including Elisha Williams of Burnaby, got by Japan 62-39 in the opening playoff game to advance to the semis, following a 3-1 record in pool play. In men’s play at the world championships, Canada, including Ross MacDonald of Burnaby and Douglas College teammate Bo Hedges, finished in seventh place. Canada defeated Turkey 71-61 for its final placing. Hedges scored five points for the winners. In its opening playoff game, Canada lost to eventual fourth-place finishing Italy 63-47. Great Britain knocked off Canada 67-51 in the second round of playoffs. Canada was 3-2 after pool play, including a 67-55 win over eventual silver medallists France. Australia defeated France 79-69 for the gold medal.

Sr. B Burrards start playoffs on Thursday The Burnaby Burrards won the West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association regular season following a 146 victory over the Valley Rebels last week. The win gave the 14-1-1 Burrards a two-point lead on the runner-up Tri-City Bandits and four-points on third-place Ladner Pioneers. Oliver McKenzie backstopped the win in goal for Burnaby, stopping 31 shots while also scoring a rare goal for the home team at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on July 14. The goal came late in the opening period with the Valley keeper on the bench for an extra attacker. McKenzie controlled a shot on goal and, without an outlet man to pass to, threw the ball the length of the floor for the backup keeper’s first goal in senior

division lacrosse. However, the goal was not the first-ever for McKenzie. He had scored twice before while playing as a junior league goalie. Marcus Wooden led the Burrards with a hat trick, while Chris Fox, Justin Thomas and leading team scorer, Rob Brommer, all had multi-goal games. Matt Demkier, with a five-point night, Quinn Waddington, Kevin Bowbyes and Chris Macey also scored for Burnaby. Burnaby and Tri-City both received a bye into the semifinal playoffs.

The Burrards will open play in the best-offive semifinal against the Nanaimo Timbermen at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Thursday, July 22. Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m. The series moves to Nanaimo on Sunday, while Game 3 is scheduled back at the Copeland centre on Tuesday, July 27. If necessary, Game 4 will be played in Nanaimo on Thursday, July 29. A fifth and final game would be played at Burnaby Lake Arena on Friday, July 30. All games are 7 p.m.

starts. The other semifinal will see the runner-up TriCity Bandits gunning for a fourth consecutive provincial title. The Bandits will take on third-place finisher Ladner Pioneers in a similar bestof-five series. The series kicks off at the Port Coquitlam rec centre on Friday, July 23 at 8 p.m. Game 2 is in Ladner on Sunday, with Game 3 back in PoCo on Monday. If necessary, play will continue July 29 in Ladner and July 30 in PoCo.

Willingdon Avenue Interchange Motorist and Pedestrian Access Changes

Improvements to the Willingdon Avenue Interchange are set to begin as part of the Port Mann/Highway 1 Improvement (PMH1) Project. On July 23, 2010, the east sidewalk will be closed for construction and all pedestrians will use the west side of the Willingdon Avenue overpass. Pedestrian routes will be well-signed. On August 3, 2010, the existing westbound off-ramp to Willingdon Avenue north will be closed. Motorists wishing to travel northbound on Willingdon Avenue from Highway 1 westbound will use the existing Willingdon Avenue south exit, which will be reconfigured to accommodate this traffic. These traffic pattern changes will be in place for approximately one year and are required to build a new overpass and improve safety for motorists exiting and accessing Highway 1. For more information or to view a detailed map of these changes, please visit the PMH1 Project web site at, call 1 866 999-7641(PMH1) or e-mail

Edmonds senior Norm Lesage made sure he got a new Canadian record in the master men’s sprints. Lesage, 80, broke the old national record for the 100 metres in the 80-to-84 division three times this season. His pending new mark of 16.11 seconds was set at the Trevor Craven memorial meet at Swangard Stadium on July 10. The old Canadian record of 16.28 was held by then 82-year-old Alex Ernesaks of Ontario and set in Miyazaki, Japan back in 1993. Lesage also set a new provincial master’s age-group mark in the 200m, racing to a 34.37 clocking in Langley in May. Ernesaks still holds the national record of 33.93 in the 200m, also set in 1993 in Japan. Herb Phillips of Burnaby posted two new provincial long-distance records.

At home in the pool:

Burnaby Barracuda club’s Alison Tso excels in both water polo and speed swimming. Tso helped the co-ed P3 water polo team to victory at Central Park Pool earlier in the month, while also earning five medals, including three gold in freestyle and butterfly at the club’s recent A/B swim meet.

British Columbia faced host Newfoundland in the opening game at the Nutrilite under-16 girls all-star national soccer championships Tuesday. Cliff Avenue Synergy defenders Lindsey Pulice and Simran Parmar, midfielder Tamara Roughead and goalkeeper Kayla Klim make up a strong Burnaby contingent on the B.C. provincial girl’s team that will play in the week-long competition in St. John’s, N.L. The u-14 and u-16 boys’ all-star teams will be competing at the national championships held in Sherbrooke, Que. Burnaby Selects goalkeeper Manual Mangu and defender Paris Gee will play for B.C. in the u-14 and u-16 squads, respectively. Final placement games will be played on Sunday in both boys’ and girls’ competitions.

in the lineup. The exBurnaby team captain and former two-time league MVP is currently fourth on the squad in overall scoring, averaging just under four points per game. New Westminster, on the other hand, fielded another changed lineup with Jordan Hall, Jordan McBride and Curtis Manning away at the World field lacrosse championships. “You never expect something like that but it happens occassionally,” said ‘Bellies captain Nenad Gajic. “We got outworked. They fully deserved the win.” Gajic, who has played just five games this season and epitomizes in many ways the roster challenges faced by New Westminster, says it is partly responsible for closeness of the league. “I don’t think there are any teams that are afraid of us, and if we don’t put out what we need, we’re not going to beat any team. They’re all too good,” he said. “Their goalie deserves a lot of credit, … but we didn’t match their intensity. … We’re not playing like a top team right now. We don’t deserve it.” Gajic added that the team’s ability earlier in the season to pull victories out of a hat in overtime has

perhaps had the effect of making the team believe it’s unbeatable. “Confidence doesn’t win you games, you have to match the effort (of the other team). This is the last point of the season you want to give up games like this,” Gajic said. “Five overtime games is a fact. If we can’t understand that, we’re going to have trouble going into the post season.” On Sunday, the Lakers were back at their mortal best, losing a third straight game against middle-table Nanaimo Timbermen 109 in overtime in the Hub City. Burnaby trailed 8-6 early in the final frame but took the lead on three straight counters by Sedgwick, Chase Williams and Matt Brascia. But in the final minute of play and the Lakers on a power play, Nanaimo tied the score on a shorthanded goal by Joel Henry. Henry then tallied the game-winning goal in extra time midway through the overtime period. Dickie made 42 stops in the Burnaby goal. Scott Ranger led the T-Men with four goals and nine total points. Burnaby plays host to the Victoria Shamrocks on Friday at 7:45 p.m.

with a three-over-par 75 to place just four shot behind the eventual boy’s 11-to-12 winner Norman Xiong of San Diego, California. On the final day, Alex, who had moved up to sixth place following a three-under 69 on the 6,027-yard Country Club of Rancho Bernardo course, was just a stroke behind the leaders when he bogeyed the par-5 473yard 14th hole. Just 10 strokes separated the top 25 golfers in Alex’s age division. “It’s extremely competitive in my son’s age group,” said father Joseph. “I told him, you are going to play against the world, and on the last day it will be against the extreme best. I was extremely proud.”
