Property values hit $57 billion

Shooting for the record

Women hockey players hope to score new Guinness World Record in non-stop game and raise funds for cystic fibrosis

Games stretching into overtime have long been a part of hockey, but never for a period of time as long as organizers behind an upcoming game are shooting for. On August 26, a total of 40 women will take a collective deep breath before hitting the ice at Canlan Ice Sports Burnaby 8 Rinks, their de facto home for the next 10 days as they attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for playing the longest hockey game while also raising funds and awareness for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. “We’ve got about 35 women so far,” said Longest Game 4 CF spokesperson Vallerie Skelly. “We’d like to get at least 50 signed players, because stuff can happen over the winter. They could get injured playing or get pregnant, who knows what could happen?” The current record – a whopping 241 hours and 21 minutes – was set nearly three years ago by men playing outdoors at the northern Alberta homestead of the Edmonton Oilers’ in-house optometrist, Brent Saik. The women are hoping to beat them at their own game by precisely 65 minutes. The extra minutes were chosen specifically as an homage to late New Hockey Page 4

New Patients Welcome!

Assessed property in Burnaby is worth $57.786 billion this year, according to B.C. Assessment’s 2011 assessment roll. Last year’s assessment roll put Burnaby’s total property values at $51.445 billion, meaning there has been an increase of more than 12 per cent over last year. The overall increase in assessment values is about four per cent more than expected, according to real estate agent Adam Goss. “It’s much higher than anticipated,” said Goss, who sells in Burnaby and New Westminster with Park Georgia Realty. But he said the higher assessments wouldn’t necessarily make an impact on buyers. The effect of the increased property taxes, due to higher assessments, is minimal, he said. The cost of the property taxes is usually included in the mortgage, Goss pointed out. “If you’ve got someone who’s close (to buying), I don’t know that it’ll make or break (the deal),” he said. “It comes down to a matter of a few thousand.” The property tax increase

Animal lovers deal with ‘bunny tsunami’ Gender identification challenge leads to a booming bunny problem in city home Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

They’ve been hit by a “bunny tsunami.” Burnaby’s Small Animal Rescue Society is struggling to find homes for 28 rabbits after a call from a local family with multiplication problems. A woman called and left a message that she needed help with some rabbits, said Lisa Hutcheon, a volunteer with the society. The family was given a pair of rabbits by a friend, and that pair had started to multiply. Hutcheon discovered the procreating rabbits had “I went out that not been sepabecause the night, as I know rated owners couldn’t how quickly it tell which were female and which can get out of were male. hand.” “I went out that night, as I LISA HUTCHEON know how quickvolunteer ly it can get out of hand,” Hutcheon said. “Rabbits can have a litter every month and can get pregnant immediately after giving birth.” So Hutcheon separated the boys from the girls, and took them to a vet to get spayed and neutered. The lesson, she said: Do your research before getting any pets. That means know the sex of the animal and make sure they are fixed. Now the society is asking for donations to help pay for spaying, neutering and feeding the “bunny tsunami.” The surgeries alone are estimated at $2,000, and the group is run entirely by volunteers. They

go against the intrinsic nature of a rabbit. This disconnect is a big part of why we have hundreds of unwanted rabbits.” On the other hand, rabbits make great pets for adults, Hutcheon added. The society typically has 400 rabbits on hand that

No money to pay for postpartum support group Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

While they may have more money overall, the Ministry of Children and Family Development just doesn’t have enough to pay for a Burnaby-based group that helps moms struggle with postpartum depression. The Pacific Post Partum Support Society had its long-term funding cut in 2010 and has had to shut down its Burnaby support group for moms with postpartum depression. The group helps women all over the Lower Mainland, and counselling hours for their support line have also been clawed back, along with other services. 6/7

The Ministry of Children and Family Development funds the society, which is contracted through the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority. Children and Family Development Minister Mary Polak said cuts to the society’s funding happened because there is less money for contracted services. “This year, of course, we had some pretty difficult financial times, even though our ministry budget has increased,” Polak said. Even though the ministry’s budget increased by $9.5 million overall, the $717 million reserved for contracted services was reduced by $5 million. That’s less than one per cent, but the cuts still affect groups like

the Pacific Post Partum Support Society, which is now worried for its very survival. Polak said the cuts to Pacific Post Partum Support Society did not, in any way, reflect a lack of value with the program. “My understanding is they’ve done some really great work,” she said. “It’s just that in order to make those reductions, we’ve had to ask ourselves: what are our core pieces of work that we do as a ministry? And of course, the priority has got to be direct services to kids and vulnerable families.” The ministry pointed to programs that Fraser Health offers as alternatives for Burnaby moms with postpartum depression. For instance, there is a program for Cuts Page 8

Hockey: Longest game set continued from page 1

Westminster resident Eva Markvoort. Markvoort drew worldwide attention to cystic fibrosis – a respiratory condition that strikes roughly one in 2,000 people and is the most fatal genetic disease affecting young Canadians – after sharing her personal struggles with it through the award-winning documentary 65_RedRoses and her blog of the same name. (The phrase “65 roses” itself is a common shorthand in the cystic fibrosis community due to a young boy’s now-famous mispronunciation of his medical problem.) “I was already starting to plan the game after a friend of mine had died from cystic fibrosis,” said Skelly, who never had a chance to meet the woman whose image adorns Longest Game 4 CF posters. The former Miss New Westminster passed away last March after waiting in vain for a donor for a second double-lung transplant. “The local cystic fibrosis office, when I was telling them the idea, said they had someone who might be our spokesperson, and that was Eva,” she said. “After she passed, we spoke with her family and asked if we could use her image because we knew she really wanted to continue her legacy, that was something that was really important to her, and she had already done all the legwork for us in getting (cystic fibrosis) on people’s radar.” Skelly, who currently plays centre for

the Thunder A in the local Duffers Hockey League, said the attempt wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of Canlan Ice Sports, who will not only be donating one of their six NHL-sized rinks for 10 days straight but even the continuous services of a Zamboni driver. “I thought at first that it would be really easy to get ice at that time of year because it is between hockey seasons but no, they have camps running through the whole summer,” said Skelly with a laugh. “It was a really big deal for them to give us that ice time for that long and someone who can be there 24 hours a day to make sure the ice is always healthy.” While the details are still being ironed out, she said the plan is for players to sleep and cook food in RVs when they’re not on the ice. Each team will have 20 per side, and there will be no switching teams. “You can play any position, though, so goalies can play out if they want, or others can play in. If one person gets injured, then you’re down to 19 on that side. You’ve got to roll with it.” The group will be holding hourly information sessions for interested players, volunteers and potential sponsors on Jan. 19 starting at 6 p.m. at 8 Rinks, located at 6501 Sprott St. Goalies, as always, are particularly needed. To find out more or to make a donation, go to or look them up on Facebook.

New Westminster police arrested a woman who escaped from Burnaby RCMP custody on Jan. 7.

According to the RCMP, Smith did not attempt to evade police and was not wearing the same clothing she was at the time of her escape. In addition, the handcuffs and shackles she was last seen wearing had been removed. Smith was transferred to Burnaby RCMP custody at approximately 3 a.m. and was escorted to Vancouver Provincial Court on Monday morning. Smith was wanted because of a Friday incident that began at the Metropolis at Metrotown shopping centre, where she arrested on suspicion of shoplifting. Police discovered she was in a breach of probation conditions by being at the shopping centre. Smith was taken to the Burnaby RCMP detachment and booked into the cells there.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Cut out the unnecessary idling Dear Editor:

Having observed three separate instances of excessive and unnecessary vehicle idling this past weekend, I feel compelled to write and remind your readers about Burnaby’s DriveSmart program, intended to reduce unnecessary vehicle idling in Burnaby. According to the city’s website: “Idling produces unnecessary pollution that contributes to climate change, smog and health problems. This pollution directly affects the health of our children and other vulnerable members of our community, such as the elderly and people with respiratory problems. “Idling wastes fuel and is a complete waste of

money. Letting your car idle burns gasoline needlessly and gets you zero kilometres to the litre. “Idling is not good for vehicle engines. Contrary to popular belief, most modern engines experience more wear-and-tear by being allowed to idle for extended periods of time.” Please, let’s not leave our cars running any longer than we absolutely have to.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR MLA has been an asset continued from page 6

Richard Lee’s election history was left out of the article. Richard did see a gap of winning by just 65 votes in 2005, but in 2009 he won by 624 votes. What does this result mean? It proves that the citizens wanted Richard to return to represent them in government, and not an opposition candidate running for the first time in Burnaby North. The citizens have spoken in regards to both the HST and the mishandling of the deliverance of the tax. They will have the chance to do so in the referendum that will be coming up either in September or perhaps earlier in June. Richard along with his associates on the legislative committee decided as a majority that British Columbians should have a say as to whether the HST stays or goes in a province wide referendum. The NDP members on the committee wanted to debate the HST in the legislature, something which had already been done in May 2010. Since his re-election in 2009, Richard has provided above-the-average service to his Burnaby North constituents, something that all voters should consider over and above politics.

to taxes and services. They simplistically think that cutting things like the salaries of politicians will provide the money to take care of the rising demands of society. So it’s easy for them to simply and enthusiastically vote “no” in a referendum to any proposal to raise taxes, even while they demand more and more things from government. One of Abbott’s leadership rivals, Christy Clark, has rightly called him on this idea. To his credit, Abbott appears to have the most extensive and thoughtful platform of any of the candidates. But if he ultimately wins the leadership, I hope he confines the tax-by-referendum idea to a one-time-only occurrence. ◆ A lot of observers were

Chevron not trustworthy

Look as Young as You Feel

Chevron cannot be trusted and must go. Once the leak was discovered by the public, Chevron went into PR mode by minimizing its magnitude and by hosting a children’s outdoor movie at Confederation Park in August. Initially, Chevron reported that the leak is merely the equivalent of a few tablespoons of oil per day. Now it has admitted that the amount of oil leaked into the ground since last spring is over 10,000 litres, the equivalent of 68 barrels. It has been obvious that Chevron is misleading the public and will continue to do so until it is forced to tell the truth. Chevron’s unwillingness to be forthcoming about the reality of the situation should cause the public to not treat this spill as an accident but as a crime. Crimes are covered up by the guilty party whereas accidents are admitted. Chevron has opted to cover things up and has lost as much of my trust as our inactive provincial government has. The refinery must go and the land cleaned up at Chevron’s expense. Where has my MLA, Richard Lee, been during this issue? Unfortunately, nobody will see a single day of jail time for the crime that continues to be committed as I write this letter.

quick to write off NDP MLA Harry Lali as a serious leadership candidate, but I think he has the potential to have a significant impact on the race and on the party’s future as well. While I don’t think he stands a good chance of actually winning the contest, Lali has signaled he’s prepared to play rough and engage in some serious hand-to-hand combat with people. As a veteran MLA and former cabinet minister, Lali cannot simply be ignored by the party’s hierarchy. In fact, Lali says he wants to take down what he considers to be the “establishment” of the party. Presumably, he’s referring to people like party president Moe Sihota, provincial secretary Jan

O’Brien, B.C. Federation of Labour president Jim Sinclair, and those in the NDP caucus who have been calling the shots for years. Again, I don’t think he’s going to necessarily be successful in his quest, but if he pushes the theme hard enough things could get very, very ugly indeed within the NDP. Rather than a so-called healing process, the leadership race may end up being an all-out war pitting faction against faction. And perhaps that’s just what the party needs. A lot of former allies in the party are now bitter enemies, and until they deal with their internal demons, they stand little chance of forming government.

Chevron won’t remove contaminated soil Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

While Chevron is legally obliged to stop the oil that’s been seeping downhill from the North Burnaby refinery since last spring, the company has no plans to remediate the onsite soil, and the provincial Environment Ministry isn’t going to force them as long as they are still operating. Chevron discovered a mix of gas, diesel and crude leaching from the refinery on April 21. The company has not been able to pinpoint a source, and it appears that the seepage is the result of contaminants built up in the ground over time, now being carried offsite through the groundwater. The oily mixture is showing up in a ditch next to the railroad tracks and on the beach below the refinery. Although the refinery property is contaminated, Chevron’s Ray Lord said it’s not a realistic option to remove soil from the site. “This is private property, and that is

why the issue is being dealt with the way it is, which is to monitor the perimeter of our property. This is a functional refinery with (a) roadway, with pipes, various operating production units, and excavation is not an option,” he said. “But we can do our best to prevent material from getting where it shouldn’t be in the first place.” Part of that prevention includes the extraction wells Chevron has installed to try and capture the material before it percolates offsite and a monitoring program in place since 2004 to keep an eye on the perimeter of the property. If they notice areas along the perimeter with “active” levels of hydrocarbons, then they install more extraction wells, Lord explained. “It is not an impermeable wall of protection,” he added. “We’re frustrated as well that we can’t snap our fingers and (the oil seep) will go away.” Part of the reason the company has not been able to locate a source is because the underground flow of water is so slow, Lord said.

Cuts: Society looking for donations continued from page 3

new moms that helps with postpartum depression and caring for babies, provided via family doctors and public health nurses. Manasi Vadhera of the Pacific Post Partum Support Society said the group appreciates the work done by Fraser Health, but her group – a non-profit with trained counsellors who offer one-on-one support for women – is different. “We hold these women’s hands until

they feel they are ready to move on,” she said. In the absence of government funding, the society is looking for donations, and Vadhera said they may have to start charging for their presentations with the authority’s public health units, which they usually do for free. To donate, visit or call 604-255 7955. For more on this story, see Jennifer Moreau’s blog, Community Conversations, at www.

“We certainly want to make it clear to people that we’re trying,” he said. “A great deal of effort is going into this. … We’re committed to resolving the situation.” Chevron estimates that roughly 10,000 litres of oily material have been captured through the extraction well system – that reflects about 62 barrels of material soaked into the ground onsite. Another 816 litres have migrated offsite, but the vast majority of that has been cleaned up, according to the company. When questioned if the provincial Environment Ministry had any plans to make Chevron clean up its contaminated site, the response was negative. However, ministry spokesperson Colin Grewar pointed out that Chevron is required by law to stop the oil from seeping off their property and to remediate the foreshore area. (Some areas on the beach were found to have contaminant levels above provincial standards.) “Chevron is currently conducting independent remediation of the foreshore area

with Ministry of Environment oversight. They are remediating the foreshore according to the requirements set out in the Contaminated Sites Regulation,” Grewar wrote in an e-mail to the NOW. “Ministry of Environment staff continue to monitor the company’s progress in confining and remediating the contamination. To date, Chevron has been responsive and has acted quickly on direction from the Ministry of Environment.” But, he added, the company is not required to remediate the refinery itself while it continues to operate as an industrial site. “If and when the refinery was to shut down, Chevron would be responsible for remediating the site,” Grewar continued. “Chevron has voluntarily conducted specific on-site remediation projects in past to remove contamination from the site’s 75 year operating history.” For more, see Jennifer Moreau’s blog, Community Conversations, at www.burnaby

might affect retired couples living on a fixed income, he said, but probably won’t affect the market. Aside from increased property taxes, Goss said he didn’t think the assessments would affect property sales. Two properties with the same square footage, of the same age, in the same area might be assessed as having similar property values, he said, but the sales value would depend on things like upkeep and whether or not one of the homes has been renovated. “Renos are not included in the assessments,” he pointed out. What would most affect the market right now, Goss said, is if mortgage rates increased. The new comparison tool on the B.C. Assessment website, where home owners can compare their assessment with neighbours’ homes online, might help his clients better understand the value of their home, Goss said. Property values in the Lower Mainland saw a big increase in the 2011 assessment. Property values across the province this year totalled more than $1 trillion, a first for B.C. That comes to an eight per cent increase province-

wide over last year. Neighbouring New Westminster residences increased in value by 9.11 per cent, while Vancouver’s increased by 12.17 per cent. But the largest increase in the province was in Richmond, where residential property values went up by 17.14 per cent. However, much of the rest of the province, outside of the Lower Mainland, did not increase by nearly as much. In some areas, such as Whistler and the Okanagan, property values either didn’t change, or decreased. Homeowners can check at, and click on e-valueBC under Public for the value assessment on their home and neighbouring properties. B.C. Assessment mailed out assessment notices with more information on Dec. 31. B.C. Assessment shows the assessed value of most of B.C.’s 1.9 million residential properties as of July 1 of the past year, but the actual value of the home depends on the current market. Appraisers consider size, age, quality, condition and location of individual properties. For those wishing to appeal their assessment, the deadline is Jan. 31.

Yoga for the very young While it may be difficult to get the little ones sit still, Ryoko Donald is teaching students at Kitchener Elementary yoga and meditation. “I just love helping children. They’re amazing,” Donald said. “It’s such a pleasure to work with the little kids.” Every Wednesday, Donald holds a drop-in yoga session at Kitchener where her two children attend school. Usually about 30 to 40 students show up for the half-hour sessions in the gym. Donald said the meditation part can be difficult with kids. “They smile, they laugh, they try to talk, but I think we just have to keep it short,” she said. The sessions help the students strengthen their muscles while calming their minds, which helps them concentrate better, she added. Principal Dennis Taylor said the program was important for the kids. “It provides them with a chance to have a mindful moment and to stop and reflect,” he said. Teacher-librarian Kae Solomon first started the yoga sessions at the school and then Donald offered to take over. Donald is a certified yoga fitness teacher who teaches at Dance Express, at 4247 Lougheed Hwy. She’s offering free classes on Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. For more information, see the website at – Jennifer Moreau

Man comes forward on releasing pet turtles HERE & NOW

Jennifer Moreau


e received a note from a man who grew up in Burnaby and told us he released a couple of turtles in Deer Lake decades ago when he was a kid. The issue of pet turtles in local lakes has come up while we’ve been covering the endangered Western painted turtle and the Burnaby Lake dredging project over the past cou-

ple of years. There are two kinds of turtles in both Burnaby Lake and Deer Lake: the indigenous (and endangered) Western painted turtle and the red-eared slider, which is an invasive species that was likely introduced to the lakes by people dumping pet turtles. (A diamond-back terrapin and a Chinese pond turtle have also been spotted in Burnaby Lake, both were likely abandoned pets.) Now, we have this man, (who shall remain nameless since he thinks one would get arrested for such behaviour today) saying his mom made him give up his pet turtles, a

female and male, because of worries about salmonella. The U.S. banned selling turtles that were smaller than four inches in 1975 because of salmonella scares. Apparently, that size was chosen since it’s harder for kids to put the turtles in their mouths (and contract salmonella) when they are bigger than four inches. So our contact is not sure where his turtles came from – he was only a kid then – but he says they had some red by their eyes, so they would likely be the red-eared slider variety, the kind most often found in pet stores. I doubt he’s the only

one responsible for introducing the red-eared slider in local lakes, but with the salmonella concerns, there were likely other worried parents dumping their kids’ turtles.

Youth leaders

The South Burnaby Neighbourhood House is holding an information night on Jan. 18 for youth interested in the group’s leadership program. Parents of interested participants are also welcome to attend. The program offers skill based development and community experiences to teens in grades 10 and 11. Training lasts 25 weeks, and participants get

hands-on volunteer experience in the community and in the neighbourhood house’s after-school programs. The info session is at 4845 Imperial St. at 6 p.m.

Conservatives host fundraiser

The Burnaby-Douglas Conservative Association is hosting a fundraising reception on Thursday, Jan. 13 with Ronald Leung and James Moore as guests. “(Attendees) get a chance to meet James Moore and hear from him and the latest that’s going on in Ottawa,” said association’s Marko Dekovic.

Leung ran in the 2009 federal election against incumbent Bill Siksay, who won on a margin of less than 1,000 votes. Moore is the minister of Canadian heritage and official languages and MP for Port MoodyCoquitlam-Port Coquitlam. The event runs from 6 to 8 p.m. at La Fontana Caffe, 101-3701 Hastings St. Tickets are $75 per person, but approximately $50 of that will be covered by a tax receipt. There will be snacks and coffee. For tickets, e-mail info@ or call 604-420-4131. Send Here and Now items to jmoreau@burnabynow. com.

TASTE Choose the right knives ON COOKING


Chef Dez

have always said that one of my favourite things about being a chef is that I get to play with knives. Although this may sound very adventurous in a James Bond fashion, knife skills and

proper, safe cutting practices are a very serious subject in the kitchen. With some basic knowledge, you can start to overcome any cutting intimidation you may have. In this column, I will focus on the tools themselves – knives. This will be the first of three instalments on cutting. My next column will focus on cutting boards, and the third column will focus on cutting techniques. There are many choices when trying to decide on

which knives will adorn the collection of cutting tools in your kitchen. The marketplace is saturated with everything from mailorder deals to high-end specialties. First and foremost, I have to stress that one usually gets what they pay for. Before you reach for your credit card when you see the full collection of ginsu knives for only $19.99 on TV, think about it realistically. How well Chef Dez Page 14

Chef Dez: Tips for choosing the knives you need continued from page 13

are these knives manufactured? Once the $20 is divided between the TV airtime costs, the production of the commercial and any middle-men that may be in between (such as marketers, etc.), how much is actually going toward the manufacturing of these knives? Remember, from this amount, a profit must be made as well. If you are looking to start a good quality knife collection, you should purchase knives that are made from high-carbon stainless steel. The high carbon content in stainless steel is what ensures the steel is strong. This is very important for keeping a sharp edge. Any knife can be made from stainless steel, but unless it is has a high carbon content as well, it will lose its sharpness very quickly in comparison. Start with a standard “chef’s” knife. Other than for bread cutting, this is the most versatile knife one can have in the kitchen, and it can be used for almost any application. It offers a rounded top edge of the blade that facilitates a rocking motion to ease most cutting/slicing preparations. The next knife one should purchase for their collection is a good-quality serrated knife for bread cutting. The serrated edge will not only produce perfect slices of bread without squashing the bread, it also brings relief to producing extremely thin cuts of fruits and vegetables. One should also purchase a paring knife because a chef’s knife might be overkill for those small jobs. These are the three main knives that should grace the starting foundation of your knife collection. From this point on, you can proceed to adding other knives such as a carving knife, filet knife, cleaver, vegetable knife, etc. Most good-quality knives will offer a full tang, meaning that the steel blade will run through the full length of the handle as well. This will offer more balance and control. Most importantly, ask questions and ask to handle the knives to ensure they offer a comfortable companionship with your unique hand. If a retail store is not informative about their products and will not allow you to handle them, then take your business to one

that will. Send your food/cooking questions to dez@chefdez.

fresh new year brings to our lives a new start … or at least a new calendar. The act of making a New Year’s resolution demonstrates recognition that we can improve our lives and that we have both the power and the responsibility to change our behaviour. It requires a dose of optimism. You don’t have to be dissatisfied with your life to see how you can make it better. Some people don’t make resolutions because they are perfectly content with their lives and with themselves. Others don’t make resolutions because they’ve seen a few dozen New Years come and go without any resolutions sticking. Before any of us resolves not to make any positive changes in our lives, let’s take a moment to compile our personal top 10 list for the past year. What were the significant personal events of your year? What was the goofiest thing you did last year? If it was goofy funny, did you have fun and share a good laugh? Do you have something even goofier planned for the New Year? If it was goofy stupid, did you learn your lesson or are you going to be a goof again? If you can’t remember doing anything goofy at all, you may be taking yourself far too seriously, like Donald Duck. A similar question: What was your biggest mistake? You’re allowed more than one. What did you learn about yourself, about others or life? In order to learn and to grow, we have to make some mistakes. If you didn’t make any mistakes and if you never fall, you might consider trying new things and pushing the envelope. What was your greatest success? When I look back at each year, I don’t measure success by awards, accolades, money or clothes. I find more gratifying and soul-sustaining my success at helping push others up, be they patients, family, friends or anyone else I can help to achieve their personal potentials. Who did you help this year? What great and small acts of kindness did you perform? What was the kindest thing you did for someone else?

and what you value above all else, and resolve to devote your time and energy to them. Dr. Davidicus Wong is

Lori Iacoviello is cruising seamlessly into her new role as owner and manager of the Hastings Street location of Expedia CruiseShipCenters. The mother-of-two recently took over ownership of the Burnaby location, but she’s sailed this ship before. Iacoviello owned an Expedia outlet in Victoria for nine years before she moved to the Lower Mainland with her family last January. She was working at Expedia’s corporate office in downtown Vancouver for about six months when she decided to get back to running her own shop. After more than two decades in the travel business, Iacoviello has seen some major changes to the “booming” cruise ship industry, she says. The cruise lines are working hard to get the message out that cruising isn’t just for the greyhaired, retired set anymore. “We are getting younger and younger demographics going as well,” Iacoviello says. “People used to, years ago, think that cruising was for the old and rich. It’s changed.” A career perk for Iacoviello – she’s been able to take her kids on about 15 different cruises. Her favourite cruise was through the

Mediterranean. “I did Barcelona to Venice, and it was a just pinch-me trip,” she says. The advantage of a cruise is that you get to see a lot of destinations and determine where you’d like to visit again. “If there’s something I absolutely love, like my husband and I just loved Capri and Sorrento and the Amalfi coast in Italy, and we said, ‘There’s where we are going to do a holiday, when we have the time to spend two weeks there,’ and then I knew where I wouldn’t want to spend a week too,” she says. For Iacoviello, cruising is great way to travel because it offers the ability to unpack once and see the world. “People cruise for different reasons and there are different cruise lines that cater to different people, and I think that’s where our expertise comes in the handiest because (for) the average consumer, it’s really hard to differentiate between what’s the difference between all of these cruise lines, and that’s what we do,” Iacoviello says.

Expedia CruiseShipCenters is holding its grand re-opening on Feb. 5th. It’s located at #102-4634 Hastings St. Bby. For more information, call 604-299-7447.

MOTORING Winter tires crucial for staying safe on the roads Graeme Wood

NOW contributor

Don’t put off purchasing your winter tires. Tire shop operators and ICBC are urging Burnaby drivers to ensure their cars are fitted out with proper tires for winter. “There is a finite supply of winter tires. If someone is thinking ‘I’ll hold off until colder weather …,’ the options will be limited,” said Jeff Reed, manager of Kal Tire on Boundary Road. Reed said his shop was running at full capacity in late November when it snowed and temperatures dropped below freezing for several days. But with more mild weather following in December, Reed said he noticed a decline in customers. “Obviously when there is snow on the ground, the initial push is busy and a lot of people were taken care of,” he said. Winter tires are softer and have more tread, thus giving them more elasticity and better grip in cold weather when rubber hardens. Most winter tires work best in temperatures below 10 Celsius. “Road temperature is what makes a

winter tire a lot better in the wintertime. Safety is improved just by running on them,” said Andrew Lochhead, owner OK Tires on 12th Street, who also noted all-season tires will not provide as much traction in freezing temperatures. Lochhead also said his shop saw an expected lull in customers changing over their tires during the milder spell in December, but he expects it to get busy again now that it’s getting colder. “It always depends on the weather and the forecasting. If the forecast says it’s going to be cold, then I’ll hear more inquiries,” he said. Except for some specific highways with postings, winter tires and/or chains are not mandatory in B.C.. However, ICBC spokesman Mark Jan Vrem said they are recommended and can help prevent accidents. And while failing to have winter tires in wintry weather does not void a driver’s insurance, it could play a factor in determining liability in an accident, he said. “Simply because you don’t have snow tires doesn’t make you liable, but it could be a factor. We’re advising drivers to have them,” he said.

Rebels fall out of top spot at Legal Beagle Tom Berridge sports editor

The Burnaby South Rebels came through with a third-place finish from the Legal Beagle boys’ basketball tournament at Terry Fox last weekend. South, the former No. 1-ranked team from the outset of the B.C. AAA high school season, will slip in this week’s poll after losing its semifinal matchup 72-57 to tournament runner-up Kelowna. South then rebounded with a

69-60 win over host Fox in the consolation final behind high games from second team all-star Manroop Clair, with 17, and Lazar Cuk, with 15. The new top-ranked provincial AAA leader R.C. Palmer won the Beagle title with a 70-63 victory over the No. 5-ranked Kelowna Owls. “We’re not No. 1 anymore. The pressure’s off. Now we can start to get back to work and putting it back in place,” said South head coach Greg Matic.

South came out in the first tournament of the new year and struggled against No. 8 Charles Tupper, eking out a 60-59 win over last year’s Vancouver city champion. Manroop and Ater Degal paced Burnaby with 13 points apiece. Nick Irvine chipped in with a dozen. The Rebels were then relegated to the third-place game with the loss to Kelowna. Clair led South with 30 points. “We really struggled in our

first two games. It’s all catching up on us,” Matic said, adding the Rebels have had just two practices since Dec. 15. Irvine garnered a first team allstar for South, while Degal was a second-team pick. Elsewhere on the hard court, Burnaby Central placed sixth at the Britannia Bulldog Classic in Vancouver. Central lost 73-69 to King George in the fourth-place game. Moscrop fell 56-40 to the hosts in the final placement game.

Simon Fraser University basketball is moving quickly into unknown territory. For the second straight week, both the men’s and women’s hoop teams dropped back-to-back games in the NCAA Division II Great Northwest Athletic Conference. The men’s Clan fell to 1-3 in the conference following a 99-86 loss to Saint Martin’s University in Lacey, Washington on Saturday. Earlier, SFU suffered a 95-80 defeat at the hands of Western Oregon at home on Friday. Against Saint Martin’s, SFU was outscored 27-16 in the final six minutes of play in an otherwise close contest. The loss overshadowed a career-high 38-point performance by junior transfer Justin Brown. Ricky Berry added 16 points and Zach Frehlick had 14 to pace the Clan. In Oregon, SFU started out on a 14-8 run against the Wolves, but it went downhill from then on. Berry and Frehlick led the Clan with 23 and 17 points, respectively. The Clan is at home to the universities of AlaskaAnchorage on Thursday and Alaska-Fairbanks on Saturday. Both games tip off at 7 p.m. The Clan women saw their consecutive losing streak fall to seven games following a 72-58 loss to Saint Martin’s University on Saturday. SFU has yet to win a conference game in Great Northwest play this season. “We had a much better second half tonight. We adjusted and were better in a few areas,” said SFU head coach Bruce Langford in a Clan press release. “This was a good team effort and we were much better than we were against Western Oregon.” On Jan. 6, the Clan lost 84-74 to the 4-0 Western Oregon Wolves at home. In Saturday’s loss, Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe finished with a game-high 25 points and 14 rebounds.

SFU coach named to B.C. Sports Hall of Fame Simon Fraser University wrestling head coach Mike Jones will be honoured with induction into the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame as a builder in September. In more than 35 years as head coach at the Burnaby Mountain institution, Jones has produced 18 Olympians, 28 national championship teams, and more individual champions than any other comparable program in North America. He has coached athletes to 13 world and Olympic medals. Daniel Igali and Carol Huynh were the first Canadian and first Canadian female, respectively, to win Olympic gold. Jones was also Team Canada’s wrestling coach at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angles, where SFU athletes Bob Molle and Chris Rinke won silver and bronze medals, respectively. Jeff Thue also won a silver medal at the Barcelona Games. Jones has led SFU to a total of 11 national collegiate championships, including two NAIA men’s titles and a pair of recent back-to-back CIS men’s banners. The women’s wrestling program has won six of the last eight CIS national championships under Jones. In 2002, SFU also won the North American Collegiate women’s crown. SFU holds the NAIA record of 40 individual national champions. Jones was previously

inducted into the Canadian Amateur and U.S. National wrestling halls of fame, and the NAIA and Burnaby Sports halls of fame. Jones will be formally inducted during the

43rd annual Banquet of Champions on Sept. 13. Joining Jones with induction will be hockey player Trevor Linden, para alpine skier Lauren Woolstencroft, snowboarder Maëlle Ricker

and lacrosse giants Gary and Paul Gait in the athletes category. Figure skating official Audrey Williams is also to be inducted in the builder category.

• Do your due diligence - Know more than you have to about the job and company in order to define what specifically you can offer. Consult various sources, go through articles about the company, ask people in your network for insight. • Put your best foot forward - Be polite from the moment you step through the company’s doors. “Resist the urge to text a friend or send a tweet while you wait in the lobby; you’ll make a better impression by sitting patiently and reading.” • Watch your body language - Do you touch your nose a lot when you’re nervous? Do you make and hold eye contact? Do you sit up or slouch? Practice interviewing with a friend who can give feedback about any distracting habits you might have.

• Be positive and follow through - If you don’t get the job, ask the interviewer for tips about how you could have done better. “If you accept rejection graciously, you may even put yourself first in line for the company’s next opening.” Editorial provided by Postmedia

Here's How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

• Tell good stories - Polish up a few good go-to anecdotes about yourself and how you solved business problems (but try not to sound rehearsed). The stories should describe the problems faced, talk about the actions you took and wrap up with the final results. • Ask good questions - And not just about money and vacation benefits. People respond to you when you give them something to talk to you about, says Brian Marchant, director of the business career centre at Queen’s University School of Business. So ask detailed questions about the job, or how the team you’d be joining works together. “Doing so reinforces your interest in the position and company while providing you with useful information that can help you determine if the job is a good fit,” says Creative Group. • Be yourself - The hiring manager needs to know whether the person sitting in front of him or her is a good fit. Don’t be someone in the interview that you can’t pull off every day.
