Cool tunes on a hot day They came, they grooved. The smell of sunscreen filled the air at the 11th annual Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival at Deer Lake on Saturday as temperatures soared. Hundreds of folks who love blues and roots music, or just a darn good time in the sun, enjoyed a jam-packed entertainment roster and loads of food and fun at the annual event. For more on what people had to say about the festival, the heat, the food and the performers, see pages 14 and 15.

The next stage of the HST battle is unfolding in B.C. Supreme Court in Victoria. On Monday morning, Joe Arvay, lawyer for the anti-HST campaign being led by former premier Bill Vander Zalm, said the new harmonized sales tax should be struck down by the court. “What my clients have wanted from the outset is to adhere to democratic principles,” said Arvay. “People have fought wars over the right not to be taxed without representation and consent. My clients are law-abiding citizens.” Arvay asked Chief Justice Robert Bauman to strike down the B.C. cabinet order-in-council that imposed the tax, the HST agreement between Ottawa and Victoria and “let events unfold.” Arvay said it would This story first appeared on www.burnabynow.com take him at least the next two days to explain why the HST violates the constitution and is an example of “taxation without representation” – the very spark of the American Revolution. Once Arvay is finished his argument, the government and a group of industries and businesses, including the Council of Forest Industries, the Mining Association of B.C., the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association, the Western Convenience Stores Association, the Coast Forest Products Association and the B.C. Chamber of Commerce, will make submissions to the court. One of the lawyers expected to present that argument is former B.C. Attorney-General Geoff Plant. Those arguments are also expected to take two days, meaning that by Thursday afternoon, Bauman would be able to retire to consider his judgment. The packed 68-person Victoria courtroom includes lawyers, anti-HST campaigners and the media. In the front row is Vander Zalm, his wife,

What is the secret to living 100 years? LIFE STORIES

Janaya Fuller-Evans

F

rances Shaffer doesn’t have a special diet and lives her life much as she always has — reading, keeping her mind sharp and staying close to family. But the secret to her hundred years of life, she says, is acceptance. “I accepted what life brought to me without making too much of a fuss,” the Burnaby centenarian says, “to keep life running smooth.” Shaffer turned 100 on

Monday, and had a large party at her Burnaby residence on Sunday afternoon. Shaffer learned to go with the flow from her mother, who put up with her father’s many moves over the years. “She set quite a good example for me,” she says. Shaffer’s father moved the family to eastern Canada from London, England, where she was born. From there, he took them to live in Trinidad, Colorado, where Shaffer went to grade school. She has also lived in Montreal, Ottawa and New York. “My father was kind of a restless man,” Shaffer says. They moved to Ottawa when she was 14, and

Shaffer stayed there, eventually meeting her husband Harold Shaffer and marrying him in 1935. “I married a man just as restless as my father,” she says, laughing. Harold taught business courses at Ryerson University in Toronto, and Concordia University in Montreal. When he retired from Concordia at 65, he told Shaffer she had been good about going where he wanted to go, so it was her turn to choose. She chose to move back to Ottawa to be close to her daughter Rhea, who lives in Toronto with her two children, Michael and Deena. Harold passed away four years after retiring. Two years ago, Shaffer

Burnaby RCMP are ‘running out of space’ Burnaby’s top cop to make case for new headquarters Alfie Lau

staff reporter

For an organization celebrating 60 years in Burnaby, the RCMP has seen little change in its main detachment on Deer Lake Avenue for the 45 years it has been there. While the closing of the courthouse in 2002 gave the RCMP some more space, the time is coming when the RCMP will need a new or renovated facilities. “We’re running out of space,” said Burnaby’s top cop, Chief Supt. Rick Taylor. “Add in the fact the infrastructure is aging, the pipes are old and our cell blocks are very old, I think that within the next five to 10 years, we have to look at either a replacement or a renovation for our current building.” The interesting twist in this request is the RCMP contract with the city runs out in 2012 – if the city decides not to renew the deal, it could start up its own police force, much like in neighbouring Vancouver and New Westminster. “I know that the current building is struc6

turally sound,” said Coun. Nick Volkow. “I know the issue of the RCMP contract coming up in 2012 is there, and it would be best to have that figured out first.” Volkow said the province negotiates the deal with the RCMP – the province picks up 10 per cent of the cost while the affected city, in this case, Burnaby, picks up the other 90 per cent of contracting the RCMP – and Burnaby may need to look at alternatives, such as its own municipal force. “We’re in a bit of an oddball situation because we have two municipal forces (Vancouver and New Westminster) on either side of us,” he said. “Should we be looking at more regional policing? That’s something that has to be looked at.” Volkow said his personal preference is to see Burnaby with its own municipal police force. “The more I think about it, the more I lean toward our own municipal force,” he said. “This is not a knock on our current RCMP members and the work they do, but I believe that a city has more oversight over its own police force. … I just think the RCMP, as a force, is beholden to Ottawa too much.” Not so, said Taylor. Taylor said he’s mindful of the financial constraints the city faces and he under-

stands that the mayor and council have to balance all of the various needs in the community. “Even though I’m with the RCMP, I consider myself a City of Burnaby employee,” said Taylor. “I understand that the community also needs community centres, libraries and community facilities. … All I’m saying is that it’s my job to put together the best report that I can to show council why it’s important to have a new building to

Lucky ticket nets city man $1.46 million

Shaffer: Avid reader continued from page 3

Shaffer’s two sons live in the area as well. Her eldest, Stan, lives a few blocks from Abbeyfield. Her youngest son, Jayeson, lives in Port Coquitlam, with his wife and Shaffer’s granddaughter, Alannah. Shaffer has learned to adapt and continue her quiet life over the past 100 years. “The changes were so gradual,” she says. “As they changed, I changed with them.” Bur she faced one major change she simply couldn’t work around — the computer age. “I found it was this whole new world that I wasn’t part of,” she says. Shaffer, who was an avid typist and typed her husband’s books for him, took a computer course, but was not able to make the transition. She reads three to four books per week, and up until recent years regularly played bridge and Scrabble. According to her son Stan, a retired English instructor, she got 300 to 400 word scores. “She’s a very avid reader,” he says. “She has a great, impeccable memory.” At the end of August, the Shaffers will have another party for family and friends traveling from out East, Stan says, to celebrate “the Frances Shaffer Century.”

Newly rich: Andrej Koudlai won $1.46 million in last Friday’s Lotto Max draw.

A 29-year-old computer technician from Burnaby won $1.46 million after playing Lotto Max for only a few months. Andrej Koudlai became a millionaire off a ticket purchased for last Friday’s draw. “It’s a surprise because I just started playing Lotto Max about six months ago,” said Andrej Koudlai in a press release. He matched six out of seven numbers, plus the bonus number, on the $50 million draw, according to the British Columbia Lottery Corporation. “It’s definitely going to change my life and my family’s life for the better,” Koudlai added. He intends to invest some of the money but also have some fun with it, he said. “Investing is good but you don’t really feel the presence of (the money),” he said. “I’ve never really had a decent car, so I’ll probably spoil myself with a couple of new cars before going to see a financial advisor.” He also told B.C. Lottery that he intends to use some of his winnings to go back to school.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Send illegal migrants back Dear Editor:

There is something fundamentally wrong with a system that encourages queue-jumping and rewards human traffickers. When people enter our home by breaking in through the back door, why are they given preferential treatment over law-abiding immigrants and legitimate refugees who respectfully ring the front doorbell and patiently wait to be admitted? The solution seems obvious: Immediately return all blatantly illegal (economic) migrants back to their country of origin. Sure, I realize the problem is more complicated than that, but didn’t we just spend over a billion dollars on the G8/G20 conferences to solve

global problems? Here is an opportunity to demonstrate that all that expensive face-to-face schmoozing can actually generate a dividend. How bad will the illegal trafficking of humans have to get before our governments will become proactive? Lloyd Atkins, Vernon

‘Security’ means loss of freedom Dear Editor:

I have visited cities in the United States twice this summer and was surprised at how much more intrusive security measures are there than in Canada. Ten years ago, there wasn’t much difference between Canada and America, but since the U.S. Page 7

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR U.S. is a ‘police state’ now continued from page 6

9/11 disaster things have changed. There is a heightened level of fear and suspicion there. It starts at the airport where the security checking makes you feel like a criminal. There seems to be a presumption of guilt, and one is very much aware that if they don’t like something about you, you won’t be allowed in. The same attitude is found at land border crossings, but at a lower level. What a change from the old days when all they asked was “All Canadian citizens?” and if you said yes they waved you through. The same feeling of pervading fear and suspicion is also found in their cities. Everyone seems to be watching everyone else suspiciously. While riding on rapid transit, I found someone’s wallet. As I looked for someone in authority to give it to, I began to fear being accused of stealing it. In Canada, I never would have felt like that. As a result of 9/11, Americans have given up a huge amount of personal freedom. If anyone complains, they are told it is justified to protect public safety, and that is the end of the argument. Protecting public safety now trumps everything else. I think that Americans have given up too much of their freedom in the cause of protecting public safety, and I don’t think it is worth it. I feel that by imposing these strict security measures, they have allowed the

terrorists to win. The United States has changed, and it is no longer the country it used to be. When I returned to Canada, I could not help thinking how much better our system is than theirs since, in my opinion, we have retained a fair balance between freedom and safety. I think that in many ways the United States has become a police state. Garth M. Evans, Burnaby

The more things change

Dear Editor:

The year was 1910 – 100 years ago. The average wage was 22 cents an hour. Only eight per cent of homes had a telephone. More than 95 per cent of people were born at home. Only 14 per cent of homes had a bathtub. Ninety per cent of all doctors had no college education. The average life expectancy was 47 years. The average worker made between $200 and $400 a year. One out of five adults couldn’t read or write. Everyone wanted a 1910 Ford. The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 m.p.h. Car fuel was sold only in drug stores. And there was a loud outcry by a minority that getting rid of the horse transportation was the worst environmental disaster the world had ever seen. Everything has changed in 100 years, except the environmentalists. They still travel the world at our expense (taxes) to tell us that we are bad. Don Warkentin, Mission

NDP: Who would be in cabinet? continued from page 6

grade. Whoever wins in Kamloops and/or Prince George will likely be in cabinet, since regional representation is always a factor in putting together a cabinet. So start paying more attention to those MLAs right now. The odds are good they’re going to be deciding how your tax dollars are spent before too long. ◆ It’s time everyone cut interim chief electoral officer Craig James a little slack. His controversial decision not to immediately pass the anti-HST petition on to the legislative committee responsible for dealing with it has been met with a near-hysterical reaction. I wrote a short time

back about the irrational anger that is strangling reasoned debate in this province, and the venom aimed at James is an example of that. Those who insist his actions are somehow an assault on democracy are making exaggerated claims. The legislature committee will not even sit until sometime in September at the earliest, so whether or not it receives the petition right now is irrelevant. As well, it’s unlikely the committee will take any action until it gets a sense of what’s going to happen to the two court challenges involving the petition. Finally, the legislative bill to repeal the HST will not be introduced in the legislature until the spring (if that is indeed what the committee opts for).

So there is no urgency here. While I personally feel James should have indeed sent the petition to the committee, his failure to do that hardly creates some kind of intolerable anti-democratic atmosphere. If, by the fall, the committee still doesn’t have the petition, then we may have a problem. But one does not exist right now. And those conspiracy buffs who darkly ascribe partisan motives to James’ decision are wildly offbase as well. I’ve known the man for more than 20 years and can attest to his integrity and independence. So, everyone: calm down. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

COURTS

Class-action suit alleges abuse at Oakalla One worker named in case involving former Burnaby prison Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

A North Vancouver law firm is filing a class action lawsuit against the provincial government over a former Oakalla worker who was allegedly sexually assaulting inmates. North Vancouver’s Poyner Baxter LLP is filing the suit that, if successful, would apply to all those who were similarly victimized at Oakalla, also known as the Lower Mainland

Regional Correctional Centre. The suit identifies the plaintiff by his initials only – E.D.L. – but names the former staffer as Roderick David MacDougall. The offences against E.D.L. occurred in 1980 and 1981, when he was in his late teens. MacDougall was criminally convicted of nine counts of indecent or sexual assault and served a prison term. Nine previous civil actions against the government and MacDougall were also successful, and compensation was usually in the area of $50,000 to $60,000. “What bothers me about

ing with this as a civil matter,” Poyner said, adding he’s expecting a lot of other victims to come forward. “He was in that position for 21 years, and our investigation into the situation was he was attacking people on a regular basis. Over 21 years, there could be a lot of people,” Poyner said. “The provincial government had to know what was going on several years ago,” he added. “The main thing that really annoys me about this is the government had to know, … and they did nothing about it.” MacDougall worked in a supervisory position as Oakalla’s pass and transfer

all of this, precipitating the class action against the government, is that more than 100 other victims of MacDougall had been identified by the date of the last court case in 2006,” said lawyer Jim Poyner. “Why did the government not conduct a thorough review and make sure that all of the victims were found, interviewed and helped in whatever fashion appeared to be best suited to each individual case?” Poyner said MacDougall had not been charged and convicted of crimes against E.D.L. “He was already charged and convicted in criminal court. We’re not seeking additional time, we’re deal-

coordinator. He was approving day passes and other benefits for inmates, and the allegations are that he used these things as bribes to participate in oral sex and other illicit activities. Burnaby resident Ronald Jack is working on documentary film about Oakalla, interviewing former inmates and guards and researching the prison’s history. “I’m sure there are lots of people out there who were victims. They will appear,” he said. While Jack said he hadn’t heard anything about the

MacDougall case in particular, he’s heard similar tales. “I’ve heard many, many stories about sexual abuse and favours that were exchanged. There was never a public inquiry. Maybe this class action suit will trigger something,” he said. Oakalla used to be on the South Slope, overlooking Burnaby’s Deer Lake. It was shut down in 1991 and eventually demolished. At press time, a statement of defence had not been filed, and allegations in the suit have not been proven in court.

A mother’s love: Gale Stewart started Aunt Leah’s Independent Life Skills Society in 1988 as a way to help children in foster care. The organization recently received a big boost from the federal government – a grant to help buy the home it was renting for young aboriginal mothers in Burnaby.

Keeping young moms off the street Burnaby NOW reporter Jennifer Moreau caught up with Gale Stewart, a Vancouver resident who started Aunt Leah’s Independent Life Skills Society in 1988. The New Westminster organization runs a house in Burnaby that gives aboriginal teen moms a place to stay so they don’t end up homeless. Aunt Leah’s recently received $666,500 from the federal government to buy the home the organization was renting in Burnaby.

ested in being part of another family – of wanting to recognize another set of foster parents as “mom and dad.” All of their energy and development was heading toward the desire to live independently, move out on their own. So I realized that there was no plan A, but there could be a good plan B, where foster children, as they approach their 18th and 19th birthdays, could receive more designated training and could live in a semi-independent living program.

J: What does Aunt Leah’s do exactly? G: Aunt Leah’s Society helps prevent children in foster care from becoming homeless and mothers in need from losing custody of their children. To support them on their journey of self-sufficiency, we provide supported housing, job training and coaching on the essential skills.

J: You mentioned you started one of your programs by trying to get neighbours and friends with downstairs suites to house teens in foster care, and the provincial government first rejected the idea but then started to send you the hard-to-house kids. What happened? G: Yes, this is true. I did solicit favours from my friends and neighbours, and I did manage to set up four suites (today called the Support Link Program) where very vulnerable teens could live. At that time, many of the teens with addictions and mental health issues had no resources that they would take or that were offered. The alternative to the suites I was offering was a hotel room on the Downtown Eastside. Those young people in the first suites taught me so much. I look back and realize how naïve I was, and I found out how resilient young people can be when given just one significant person who cares about them.

J: Tell me a bit about yourself. Where are you from? What were you doing before this? G: Originally I am from Ontario but have lived on the coast for the last 30plus years. I graduated from Ryerson University in Toronto in radio television arts. When we moved to Vancouver, we started a family, and at the same time Paul (my husband) and I were foster parents for about 10 years. J: Why did you start the group?

Aunt Leah’s: ‘I think this is a significant time for change to occur’ G: The biggest change is that we now have research that affirms what we have always known. Foster children, like the ones that lived in my home and in yours, need support as young adults. And when this support is not given, then very quickly they become an addition to the homeless population. When interviewed, over 60 per cent of the homeless population self-identified as former foster children. This is an astonishing statistic. The explosion in homelessness in Metro Vancouver has now motivated us to look at prevention. I think this is a significant time for change to occur. So I guess I couldn’t say that things have improved significantly, but as the First Nations people have gained their voice and have developed the strength to move out of silence, I think that those of us who advocate for change to the way we care for foster children are also more articulate, and I think these are good steps. I know that my confidence has increased in this area.

Kids help SPCA Steve Glover couldn’t be prouder of his daughter Calli. Calli, 11, along with friends Tanner Schuck, nine, and Mark Condie, 11, took advantage of the sweltering heat to open up a lemonade stand in the South Slope area on Aug. 12 and 13. The trio, along with their friends, raised more than $218 for the SPCA. “We’re awfully proud of all the work the kids did,” said Steve. “They went door-to-door, and they had signs all through the neighbourhood.” The kids even got a donation of $15 in supplies from the local Buy-Low grocery store. Calli said she and her friends had a lot of fun selling lemonade, and they are very happy to help a worthy cause. “We all have animals as pets, and we all think that animals should get a second chance,” said Calli, who added that a yard-cleaning fundraiser last year raised $45 for the SPCA. – Alfie Lau

ARTHRITIS Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products,physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the food industry. No sharks are caught #1 because of their bones/cartilage. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100 testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples: ! Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON !My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA!I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON!Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping.

Burnaby residents have seen them for years, but fairgoers to the 100th anniversary of the Pacific National Exhibition will get a chance to see some of the signature designs that have temporarily moved for 16 days. “We’ve partnered with the PNE for the past several years,” said Melinda Yong, environmental technician with the city’s parks, recreation and cultural services department. “The eco-sculptures are really a good way of combining community, environment and art in one place.” The sculptures, which involve live plants that grow within a frame, have been created by parks staff for several years. With the fair set to open this Saturday, Yong and other parks staff were working with PNE officials to put up the eco-sculptures along the main walkway into the fair. “We’re going to have the two horses, Sage and Parsley, on display, along with a bee and a specially designed eco-sculpture just for the PNE’s 100,” said Yong. That special design involves moving the two Canadian maple leaf disks that were part of the 2009 World Police and Fire Games and adding the number “1” in front to create “100.” “We’re very proud to be involved with a Lower Mainland tradition,” said Yong. The eco-sculptures will be placed along Miller Drive, which is the main route beside Hastings Park that runs by Safeway Farm Country where all the agriculture events take place.

11th annual festival – one hot ticket Record-setting temperatures didn’t daunt music lovers at Deer Lake extravaganza Janaya Fuller-Evans

staff reporter

The sun beat down on the attendees of this weekend’s Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival, with respite available in the form of lemonade, beer, free Freezies at the Tourism Burnaby tent, and a misting tent set up by festival sponsor Chevron. Unfortunately, the sun also beat down on Tom Wray’s guitars. The Burnaby crafter of handmade guitars was positioned at the edge of the Artisans’ Market at the festival, in the full sun. “It’s not good for guitars,” Wray explained in a followup interview, adding his position on the other side of the market last year was better for him. But it was a minor complaint about the festival which he said was “a good venue with good entertainment.” “It was a great day,” Wray said. Wray was kept busy with a constant stream of concertgoers who Visit www.burnabynow.com were interested for the festival photo gallery in his wares, so he was only able to catch the final performer, Taj Mahal. But he heard the other performances filtering in throughout the day, he added, saying Serena Ryder was great. According to Wray, between 150 and 200 patrons stopped by to play his guitars, an assortment including a mini jumbo guitar, a 000 guitar, a Flamenco guitar and a ukulele. The festival was fairly busy throughout the day, though there were minimal lines to get in or at any of the vendors. However, things were busy at the Trev Deeley Motorcycles booth, with many people stopping by to check out the motorcycle up for grabs. Trev Deeley, a first-time sponsor, gave away a black Harley Davidson Sportster 1200 Nightster to a ticket holder at the festival, Lynette Cummings. Cummings got her motorcycle licence in May. Trev Deeley had a booth at the festival last year and decided to get more involved in 2010. “We wanted to see if we could help with ticket sales by promoting the festival,” marketing manager Guy Wilton said, adding, “the response has been phenomenal.” The motorcycle giveaway included a $500 gift certificate from Chevron. Chevron has been a sponsor at the festival for 11 years. The 11th annual festival had about 10 food vendors, as well as a small bistro-style spot with seating, right beside the beer garden, and a buffet at the Shadbolt Centre of the Arts patio. Patrons could take their beer into the festival area so long as they had a wristband, which was provided at the gate. Geraldine Parent, the city’s organizer of the festival was pleased with the event. “We felt it was one of the smoothest ever,”

Dance off: Burnaby Blues and Roots festival-goers grooved to the music, despite temperatures in the 30s on Saturday. The 11th annual festival was a smooth success with about 5,000 people attending, according to organizers.

back to school Help your kids lighten their load

Science World 1455 Quebec Street Vancouver, BC

Over-stuffed backpacks cause pain and injury, say spinal health care experts (NC)—As summer draws to a close, kids face the painful reality of heading back to school, and toting a heavy backpack can only add to their suffering. According to a 2010 study published in the journal Spine, which used a new standing MRI technique to analyze the effects of increasing backpack loads in the spines of children, increased loads of 4, 8 and 12 kg resulted in compressed discs in the lower back and increased curvature of the spine. The good news is that backpack-related pain and injuries can be easily avoided with a little know-how,

so Ontario’s chiropractors are hoping to spread the word about backpack safety with the relaunch of the Ontario Chiropractic Association’s Pack it Light, Wear it Right program. “Poorly designed or overloaded backpacks can really cause pain, and can contribute to chronic back, neck and shoulder problems,” says OCA President Dr. David Brunarski. “Because of this, wearing and packing a backpack properly is especially important for children, whose spines are still growing,” he says. The OCA’s Pack it Light, Wear it Right program was designed and launched in 2002 in an effort to inform students, parents, and teachers about backpack safety. The program includes a poster, information and activity sheets, a brochure and a teacher’s guide aimed at illustrating how to pack, lift, carry and choose a backpack. “Many parents and teachers are getting on board and acting to help protect children from backpackrelated injuries. We’re very proud to be a part of that,” says Dr. Brunarski. For more information on how to Pack it Light and Wear it Right, visit the OCA website, at www.chiropractic.on.ca, or call 1-877-327-2273.

HST and the Coin Market Coin collecting can be fun and profitable. You do not need to invest a lot of money. You can start small and still enjoy the benefits and rewards that coin collecting offers. The best types of investment coins are higher grade, rare, key date coins. Key date coins are usually the last to be placed in a collection and are usually the most sought after by collectors as this coin is usually the last piece needed to complete their collection.

Have more energy and feel great Sick and tired of being sick and tired? It could be candida. Candida is a major problem in both women and men. Candida causes serious damage to your body’s intestinal tract and contributes to

digestive problems. There are over 80 forms of Candida and 250 forms of yeast, many of which become parasitic in the human body. When we talk about yeast overgrowth,

Renew Life’s Candida solution: • CandiGONE is a powerful cleansing product designed to help destroy and remove Candida and yeast from the body. • CandiZYME is a unique enzyme product, specifically formulated to weaken Candida and yeast by breaking down its protective cell wall, making them easier to destroy. • FibreSMART works to absorb the dead Candida and yeast cells and bring them to the colon for elimination. • FloraSMART Extra Strength is a therapeutic strength probiotic for those with chronic intestinal complaints such as candida and yeast overgrowth.

what we are referring to is an imbalance of our body’s healthy flora or beneficial bacteria. Yeast organisms are normally present in our intestinal tract in small amounts. However, this balance can easily be destroyed by things such as antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, birth control pills, poor diet, stress, and nutrient deficiencies. Here are just a few of the symptoms of Candida overgrowth: • Fatigue (low energy) • Gas & bloating • Weight issues

• Sugar cravings • Brain fog • Sinus problems • Yeast infections (women) • Athlete’s foot • Fungal infections The solution to getting rid of yeast overgrowth does not have to be complicated. Small revisions in lifestyle, nutritional supplementation and diet can increase your body’s ability to resist this condition. By following this Candida protocol, you can get rid of your Candida overgrowth, have more energy, and feel great. The difference you will feel will be noticeable.

Abuse can shatter survivor’s self-worth HEALTHWISE

I

Dr. Davidicus Wong

n my last column, I wrote of how violence and abuse – physical, sexual or emotional – can shatter the survivor’s sense of self. Each is an act of aggression, control and dominance. Each is a violation of the person and trust. When we use others to gratify our own needs without their consent or regard for their needs, thoughts and feelings, we treat them as objects, as mere bodies and not persons. What is stolen from survivors of rape and abuse is their sense of control and trust – in their world and in their relationships. The harm and loss is so great that, in most cases, survivors can never fully trust or feel safe again. Their lives are changed forever – how they feel about them-

selves, how they relate to others and how they see the world. The healing process is daunting, and it cannot be done alone. Fortunately, there are supportive people and resources available in our community. Survivors must be able to retell their stories repeatedly and, with each retelling, reshape the narrative and their emotional responses. This must be done in a safe and supportive, healing relationships. This act can defuse traumatic memories and begin the process of remaking the self. Professional counselling is helpful. Support groups can take away the sense of isolation the survivor may suffer; they can share coping strategies, and they can offer hope that one can feel better. Though never the same, their new selves can be stronger and better. Talking with emotionally strong and empathic others who are willing to listen can allow the expression of confused emotions – depression, anxiety and anger. Survivors of sexual

assault can have difficulty expressing their anger at their aggressors. In the case of childhood sexual abuse, the abuser may be dead. Sometimes fear can be the barrier to feeling anger. The act of the narrative allows the survivor to piece together a new healed self – to regain a sense of control over their own emotions, thoughts and bodies, control over their environment and their connections to others. They may regain their sense of self and selfworth. Because traumatic feelings and physical responses can be frozen with the past self that is now shattered, one may accept that it is OK or even desirable to be seen as an object of desire or a sex object judged by her physical attributes. Our culture contributes to our self-objectification and specifically to the objectification of women. Pornography encourages this dehumanizing objectification, as does popular Healthwise Page 22

Healthwise: Healing from abuse requires help continued from page 21

media and advertising that teaches us to seek validation and self-worth on the basis of our physical appearance. Survivors of sexual abuse may fall prey to prostitution and, as described in a recent Vancouver Courier article, the abusive pornography industry. Healing for the survivor of sexual assault and abuse involves the tasks of retelling your story in a safe and healing environment, the alleviation of selfblame, the healthy expression of anger, the regaining of trust in yourself, in others and in the world, regaining your connection to the rest of humanity, and the realization of your self-worth – that you are worthy of both love and happiness. We exist in relation to one another. We are each vulnerable and dependent on one another. To harm another is to harm ourselves. To heal ourselves is the beginning of healing our world. We all share in the responsibility of objectifying women and ourselves.

As parents, we must teach self-respect and self-worth but also the imperative to treat others as equals and not objects. Give to others the respect and worth we each

deserve. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician. His Healthwise column appears regularly in this paper and his internet radio show can be heard on PositiveWorld

RadioNetwork.WeEarth.com (pwrnradio.com). Burnaby Family Life (www.burnaby familylife.org) has programs available to assist survivors of sexual abuse in the healing process.

our years into running Tomoya Japanese Restaurant at 6285 Nelson Ave., Stuart and Stephanie Xue haven’t lost their passion to provide the best dining experience for their customers. What started as a Japanese-French fusion restaurant has now expanded to offer late-night barbecue options. And while chef Jason Ren has moved on, he still works with Stephanie to put new menu choices at Tomoya. Look no further than the

six-piece saba or four-piece hamachi Inferno ($10.99 each), which sees the exotic fish seared right at your table. “It’s a great meal, and it’s great for customers to see their food cooked right in front of them,” said Stuart. Also new to the menu is the signature King Neptune roll ($14.99), which features generous portions of lobster, prawns, king crab, asparagus and mango, topped with Tomoya’s special sauce. I knew I’d bitten into something special when I had my King Neptune roll. The seafood was as fresh as I could have imagined, and the special sauce provided a sweetness that went perfectly with all the seafood. Tomoya Page 24

TASTE Tomoya: Late-night barbecue menu offers tasty options for customers features generous portions of salmon and tuna sashimi to go with the fresh lettuce and special sauce. Stuart and Stephanie aren’t resting on their laurels, bringing in chef James Yan, who has experience at four-star hotels in Hong Kong, to create a late-night barbecue menu. “We’ve extended our opening hours to midnight,” said Stuart. “And that’s allowed us to extend our menu and have some great barbecue dishes.” Served almost like tapas, the barbecue dishes are nothing if not affordable.

continued from page 23

Perhaps even better was that on the day I was at Tomoya, the King Neptune was on sale for $12.99. “We’ve got a deal that each day, we have a halfprice roll if you buy $25 or more,” said Stuart. “If you come on a Tuesday, the King Neptune is only $7.50 if you buy $25 or more.” Hard to argue that logic, as the specialty rolls at Tomoya are what set it apart from other sushi restaurants. It’s not just rolls that are tasty at Tomoya, as the seafood salad, at under $9,

Three skewers of juicy lamb are only $3.95, and the grilled lamb is melt-offskewer delicious. For the more adventurous, you can order grilled chicken gizzards ($3.95 for three skewers) or grilled chicken skin ($2.99 for three skewers). “We have people who will come in here for sushi for lunch, and then afterwards, they’ll come in for the barbecue,” said Stuart. With Tomoya’s central location in the Metrotown area, another significant part of the business is sushi party trays, delivered to

local offices and homes. Dessert isn’t overlooked at Tomoya either, as I found the best way to finish off my meal was the $2.99 crème brulé, which was refreshing without being too sweet. “Tomoya means good friends in Japanese,” Stuart said, “And at Tomoya, you’ll have good sushi at good prices with good

friends. “Our focus has always been to bring together some flavours into dishes you won’t be able to find anywhere else.” One area where Stephanie and Stuart are looking at expanding is in the multimedia realm. They started up a website, www. tomoya.ca, and they may have daughter Adrianna,

Making the best of a last chance for a Minto Cup Tom Berridge

sports editor

Riley Loewen will get his first and last chance for a Minto Cup ring, beginning Saturday. Loewen, who came over to the league and playoff champion Coquitlam Adancs from Burnaby at the trade deadline along with transition teammate Nick Bilic and goalie Brodie MacDonald, was only a spectator for his first Minto Cup experience as an intermediate callup with the Burnaby Lakers in 2007. “It feels good,” Loewen said of Coquitlam’s series clinching 13-7 win over the New Westminster Salmonbellies last week. “We didn’t back-door in. We won the B.C.s and got ourselves in.” Now all that is on his mind, and that of his new teammates, is how to beat the defending twotime Minto champion Orangeville Northmen. The Northmen swept their Ontario junior A league final against the Six Nations Arrows in four straight games. Orangeville did it convincingly as well, beating the Arrows 14-8 in their own barn. Playoff MVP Jeremy Noble led the Northmen with an eight-point effort, including six goals in the OLA final. Noble led all playoff scorers with 47 points, including 31 assists. Orangeville teammate Adam Jones led all scorers with 26 goals. Both Noble and Jones are hunting for a third consecutive Minto ring. Goalie Ward Dillon, who got just two starts in last season’s playoffs, played in all 12 games for Orangeville in the 2010 post season, losing just one game while boasting a playoff-best 6.12 goals against average and an .833 save percentage. Coquitlam will counter with a few offensive threats of its own. Oshawa, Ont. product

Golf Burnaby golfburnaby.net

Mark Matthews has already made an indelible mark in the B.C. junior A league, amassing 100 points in just 17 league and playoff games to date. At 6-5, Matthews is a daunting figure in the offensive zone, but it his vision on the floor that makes him exceptional. After scoring 35 goals and 66 points in just 10 regular season games for the A’s, Matthews has garnered 27 helpers in the post season to lead all scorers. “(Matthews) is definitly one of the best passers I’ve seen. He can pretty much make a pass from anywhere on the floor,” said Loewen, who is third in Coquitlam playoff scoring behind second-year runner Robert Church. Loewen has 11 goals, including five on the power play for Coquitlam in the playoffs. The transition for the nifty lefthander has been almost seamless from the earlier years, when he knew Curt Malawsky as coach on the Burnaby Lakers. Loewen has scored more than 135 goals in four junior A seasons, including 64 in league and playoffs with the Lakers last season, when they took the Adanacs to a fifth-and-final game in the semifinals. Now in his final junior season, Loewen and his Laker teammates who were traded to the A’s, are making the very best of it. “It was a little weird at first, but me and Nick understood we did what we had to do to win a championship. We’re part of a team now,” Loewen said. “It feels good.” Coquitlam should feel good too. In Bilic, the A’s acquired a strong defender with a nose for the net. In two seasons, Bilic has scored 30 goals on just 72 shots all-time from his defender role, a scintillating 41.6 per cent shot average. Minto Page 27

Burnaby star shines light on third Canada gold at Hlinka Memorial Tom Berridge sports editor

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins proved his worth in the money game at the 2010 Memorial of Ivan Hlinka under-18 hockey championships in Slovakia. The 17-year-old Burnaby product scored the gold-medal-winning goal for Canada in a 1-0 victory over Team U.S.A. in the final of the Hlinka tournament in Piestany, Slovakia on Saturday. Nugent-Hopkins scored the game-winning goal in the opening two minutes of the first period on a solo rush up the ice for the defending champions from Canada. The Red Deer Rebels centre and last season’s Western Hockey League rookie of the year took a puck from inside his own zone and streaked up the right side, beating a U.S. defenceman and going in on a two-on-one with teammate Daniel Catenacci on the American keeper Steven Michalek. Using Catenacci as a decoy, the speedy forward roofed the game’s
