Pier park gets a break

BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

The City of New Westminster has more time to build Westminster Pier Park project, which means it could end up building more of the riverfront park. The City of New Westminster has received an extension on the deadline for expenditure of its $16.6 million Building Canada Fund grant for construction of Westminster Pier Park. The extension gives the city until March 2012 to complete construction of the new waterfront park. “We were elated to receive our Building Canada Fund grant from the federal and provincial governments, but the tight timeline attached brought with it some challenges,” said Mayor Wayne Wright. “The new timeline gives us a little breathing room and allows us to be more efficient with park construction activities and costs, delivering a new waterfront park for New Westminster citizens by fall 2011.” The city had been required to complete the park by March 31, 2011 in order to satisfy the requirements of a federal grant, but it has just learned it has been given a one-year extension. The city, the federal government and the provincial government have each contributed $8.3 million toward the park’s construction. “This is excellent news,” said project manager Dugal Purdie. “We had a really tight construction schedule.” Although he was confident the city could meet that schedule, Purdie said the extended timeline ◗Park Page 10

Transit officer honoured for actions BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

Transit Police Const. Denny Crosato was recognized May 31 by the New Westminster chapter of the St. John Ambulance for helping save the life of a man last November. Crosato and his partner were flagged down on Columbia Street by a bystander, who needed the officers’ assistance with a man who was slumped in a chair. The man was unresponsive and appeared to be choking.

Crosato opened the man’s mouth and cleared his airway, and before long, the man’s breathing began to return to normal levels and his pulse returned. The man slowly regained consciousness and, within several minutes, New Westminster Fire and Rescue personnel, along with B.C. Ambulance paramedics arrived and took over. “We recognize the importance of ensuring all of our Transit Police officers are properly trained in basic first aid,” said Transit Police Chief Officer Ward Clapham

Battle for drainage frustrates residents

t’s been a long time coming, but Queensborough will be getting a proper drainage system – if all goes according to plan. That was the lead paragraph in a story that appeared in a March 2004 issue of The Record after city council approved stages 1 and 2 of a drainage plan after commissioning a study by Dayton and Knight Ltd. consulting engineers. Queensborough resident Harry Buchholz said “it boggles the mind” how hard it’s been to get the city to respond to Queensborough’s drainage needs. Longtime area resident Alex Major said residents want city hall to “get back on track” and work toward implementing measures outlined in a drainage plan that was approved by city council in 2004. THERESA MCMANUS “Frustrating,” Major said. “We have been at this 16 years according to my records.” Members of the draining committee recently took Record reporter Theresa McManus on a tour of some of the community’s drainage trouble spots. “There is too much to see,” Major said. “You need eight hours to see our problem.” Residents attribute many of Queensborough’s drainage problems to lack of maintenance of the ditches and culverts. “When it rains, the water has nowhere to go. It is stagnant water all year long. When it rains, it adds to it,” Major said about an especially problematic ditch on Boyne Street. “It’s lack of maintenance.” In response to the Dayton and Knight study, city council approved Stages 1 and 2 of a drainage plan in 2004. Major calls the thick document his “Bible” and has placed numerous yellow Post-it notes throughout the document to highlight various issues. “There is nothing we don’t know about the ditches in Queensborough,” Major said. Having dealt with drainage issues for years, the committee members are frustrated about the lack of progress made regarding ditches. “They have a plan,” Buchholz said. “They recognize there are problems. There is no forward motion on it.” Stage 1 of the 2004 drainage plan involved major drainage improvements such as eliminating drainage barriers and improving pumping at the Carter Street Pump station, while Stage 2 involved local drainage improvements, such as re-grading ditching in the historic area, replacing the culverts in driveways and upgrading pavement. The Dayton and Knight report stated that Stage 3, which included streetscape improvements, could be undertaken in subsequent years provided there’s sufficient community interest and willingness to cost-share improvements with the city on a 50-50 basis. Major said the city’s decision to investigate the Cadillac plan (new streetscape improvements along with filling in ditches) rather than the Chevy plan (maintenance of existing ditches and culverts) stalled the process. “I said there is no point going with that option – it is going to fly like a lead balloon,” he said about the Stage 3 improvements. Jim Lowrie, the city’s director of engineering services, said drainage issues are a “high priority” for his department. We are implementing the 2005 drainage plan, prob-

Lowrie said that report identified a number of options, including infilling of residential roadside ditches. That would have cost $2.5 to $3 million per block. “The large cost there was associated with stabilizing the poor soils,” he said. “The soils there are comprised largely of organic deposits and large peat deposits. That either has to be removed or compressed by preloading.” The City of New Westminster consulted with residents and found there was strong support for upgrading streets to a full urban standard that included filling the ditches and building sidewalks, but it ultimately ranked lower because of the costs that would have been borne by taxpayers.

Drainage: City faces budget constraints ◗ continued from page 3

Lowrie said the city will prioritize work to be done starting this year. “There are about 500 of them,” he said about culverts in Queensborough. “The replacement value of those culverts is $6 million. It is not going to happen overnight. We have budgeted $200,000 a year to address replacing old culverts.” Lowrie estimated 10 to 15 culverts in Queensborough will be replaced this year. “There will be work done this summer in terms of replacing some of the culverts,” he said. “At either end of Boyne Street, there are some culverts that will be replaced.” Lowrie recently met with residents and viewed some of the ditches that they’re concerned about. “The issue on Boyne Street is there are a number of old historical culverts, many of which are not installed at the correct elevations,” he said. “There are a few old culverts that are installed too high relative to the bottom of the ditch.” Lowrie is pleased to see that the drainage committee is active once again, noting the city will be consulting with residents about the culverts to be replaced.

“We have identified a number of culverts that are pretty high priority,” he said. “Some of these culverts are 60 years old.” In terms of prioritizing work to be done regarding Queensborough’s drainage, Lowrie said the city would identify culverts that have been installed too high, have blockages or have failed. “There are some culverts in Queensborough that are wood stave – some in good shape, some have failed due to excessive flow,” he said. “A number of culverts were put in without permits.” Lowrie said the city is implementing drainage improvements, but it’s probably not at a pace that residents like. “We do have budget constraints,” he said. “We did install a new pump station in Queensborough. They increased the pump capacity in the Queensborough area by about 25 per cent.” With the pumping capacity improved, Lowrie said the city is working its way towards improving the movement of water from the storm water system and ditches to the pump station.

Fire Safety Tips

Here are some tips that will help ensure a fire-free entrance to summer: • Smoke detector batteries should be checked, and replaced if necessary. • Smoke detector units should be cleared of dust. • Fire extinguishers should be checked, and recharged if necessary. • Electric wiring should be checked for damage, and replaced if necessary. • Electrical outlets and extension cords should not be overloaded. • Air Conditioning units and electrical cords should be checked. • Barbecue Gas grills (including gas hoses) and propane tanks should be inspected prior to use. • Windows should be checked to make sure they open and close properly, in case they are needed as exits. • Review your family’s Fire Escape Plan. Make sure you have two exits and an outdoor family meeting place. • Fuels for lawn and garden equipment, etc. should be stored in an approved container only. • Pesticides and chemicals should be stored in an approved container and away from children. • Swimming pool chemicals should be stored according to manufacturer guidelines. • Oil based paints and solvents should be stored in a metal cabinet. • Ensure all combustible items are stored away from the house. • Clear any dead, dry trees or shrubs. Outdoor Burning Open burning of yard waste or garbage is a potential fire hazard. It also impacts the air quality in our region. New Westminster Fire Protection Bylaw 6940 prohibits the open air burning of any garden refuse, any and all waste material from construction sites or any land clearing materials. Outdoor Fireplaces A great variety of outdoor fireplaces are for sale at hardware stores and garden centres. Although they are legal to sell, they are illegal to use within the City boundaries. The City’s Bylaw states: “No person shall at any time start, light, ignite or burn, or knowingly permit or cause to be started, lighted, ignited or burn any fire of any kind whatsoever in the open air or in any portable incinerator or other portable appliance or device whatsoever in the open air, except where such fire is contained within a portable appliance or device and is used solely for the cooking and preparation of food and is fueled by propane, natural gas or charcoal.” Your New Westminster Firefighters care about you and your safety!

Lafflines at the Burr is aiming to open in its new location in late August. Earlier this year, the City of New Westminster announced that it was selling the Burr Theatre to Barry Buckland, owner of Lafflines Comedy Club. As part of the sale, the city approved a heritage covenant and a community use and access agreement. James Lickers, Lafflines’ talent and event manager, said interior renovations are set to get underway. Some performance groups have been using the theatre for rehearsal space and some filming has been taking place in the Columbia Street building. “We are set to move in for late August,” he said. “The club, Lafflines, will be operating before the theatre will.” Lafflines will operate on the top floor of the building at 530 Columbia St. Construction on the upper level will primarily relate to soundproofing, so the comedy club can operate upstairs and the theatre can be used downstairs. “These will probably start at the same time,” he said about construction on upper and lower floors. “Priority is given to getting Lafflines going first.” Lafflines is required to vacate its current premises on Church Street by the end of August. Lafflines had hoped to be in the Burr Theatre by the time the 2010 Vancouver Comedy Festival opened in September, but

that won’t occur. “Unfortunately there is too much involved,” he said about renovations to the main floor of the building that houses the theatre. On May 31, city council gave two readings to a rezoning bylaw for 530 Columbia St. to permit liquor-licensed premises in the building. A public hearing will be held on June 28 at 7 p.m. The liquor licence for the current location will be deleted and will be transferred to the new location. In the future, the city will receive an application for a food primary licence, which would allow food and beverage services until 2 a.m., as well as patron participation. City council recently received a staff report regarding a heritage alteration permit to allow for the rehabilitation of the front facade of the Burr Theatre. Lickers said the idea is to retain the nostalgic feel of the theatre but to also include a look that is “present and upbeat.” “He has really tried to maintain it as a heritage theatre,” said Coun. Bob Osterman. “He is working very closely with planning. … Good credit to the guy. He is really respecting what people want to see in the theatre.” In response to the city’s request for proposals, Buckland offered the city $850,000 for the Burr Theatre and property, conditional on the city making repairs to the heating and ventilation system. The city agreed to discount the price by the $69,000 estimated to complete those repairs.

OUR VIEW

no room for families to gather for festivals or just to spread out a picnic blanket and hang out. In fact, the area was specifically designed to create a wall of buildings blocking river access. The new Spirit Square addresses some of those problems, but it would have been better if the city had actually planned for people-friendly areas in the first place. Apparently a novel idea in the ‘70s. Cities don’t often get second chances – but New Westminster is getting a second chance on its waterfront. The new pier park is a good thing. Yes, it’ll prob-

ably end up costing more than anyone would have wanted. But, it is vital to the city. And, in this case, Mayor Wayne Wright deserves a lot of the credit for making it happen. His chutzpah combined with a planning department with vision and talent has made all the difference. If there are plaques to be mounted in the new park – we suggest some shared billing. Now, if we can just get rid of that monstrosity of a parkade. And, get a genuine riverfront trail finished in Queensborough.

Dear Editor:

I’ve been writing three- and four-figure cheques since January to get my new business started. I don’t begrudge the money paid to tradespeople, suppliers or even the pricey permits and licences which have attached themselves to lots of new “services.” What really outrages me is the endless expansion of transfers, taxes, fees, interest and fines from the richest kleptocracy ever in Canada – the six-tiered government apparatus, for which no one ever voted. Yes, six-tiered: feds, provinces, municipalities, regional government, Crown corporations and business improvement and neighbourhood associations – and if you think these last two are not political, just cross them. Now, my office landlord informs me that on July 1, I can just add $99.60 – the “harmonized” PST – to my rent cheque, courtesy of that bon vivant and

Hawaiian tourist motorist, Gordo, and his puppet master in Ottawa. It would not surprise me to see this crowd give us “winter relief” taxes, by ordering weather reports to use mandatory blended temperatures. John Connolly, Steveston Stamps & Philatelic, New Westminster

Publish MP spending online Dear Editor:

MPs’ spending will be soon published online, is the likelihood. The board of internal economy has an annual financial audit conducted by an outside firm. Moreover, independent bureaucrats engage in ongoing performance audits on House of Commons accounts. MPs are challenged by the independent administrators to ensure that all spending is within category limits, that they are legitimately allowed expenses,

and that they are all documented with proper receipts. If spending does not meet the strict criteria, they are rejected and not paid. There is absolutely no comparison to the archaic situation that was in place in the U.K. or in some provincial legislatures. Gauging the political mood, if Canadians are intent upon having a duplicate performance audit, the board of internal economy says it will consider it. It must follow constitutional convention of being at the board’s invitation, as has been done in the past. The office of the auditor general has been asked on occasion by the board in years past to perform reviews. The Conservatives came up with a proposal for the expanded publication of MP expenses and will present it to the other parties for approval. The Conservatives will bring such a proposal to the board of internal economy within days. The board said previously that the auditor general’s request was not accepted at that time to conduct an audit. According to the Auditor General’s Act, that recent auditor general’s proposal was beyond the scope of the auditor general’s mandate, which allows audits of government departments and various Crown agencies as identified in the Act. However, the Conservatives say they have a plan for a proper board of internal economy invitation to the auditor general. The financial disclosures are presently significant, but it is past due for expanded online publication. Paul Forseth, New Westminster

Don’t return NDP to power

Dear Editor:

Re: Rising support for third party, In the House, The Record, May 26. Be scared, very scared, of the NDP government again. Keith Baldrey is quite right regarding his comments on NDP “management.” It’s also a fact worth recalling NDP also stank at managing the most vulnerable citizens under the NDP’s supposed care in the long drawn-out day as our government.

People in the welfare system were regularly threatened to be cut off, especially if one dared to ask for further “help.” To be enrolled in a government training program can be likened to the individual being imprisoned – I know this for a fact as a married person, “incarcerated” in one NDP program in 1996 after learning my father was admitted in a Toronto hospital with a terminal illness. I was shocked and devastated when, after requesting emergency funds to be by my father’s side, I was threatened that my family (child, husband and myself) would be cut off from financial assistance and made to be another homeless family. My father was to die without seeing me at his request, his last request. Their ranting and railing “act” in our legislature is just that. I sincerely hope the NDP never regains its abusive position as government because there will be hell to pay. Clare Marie Belanger, New Westminster

Questions for trustee

Dear Editor:

Re: Two trustees fail in parent ‘report card,’ The Record, June 2. Trustee Brent Atkinson’s assertion that John Robson’s parent advisory council meetings coincide with the school board meetings is incorrect. John Robson’s PAC meetings are held on the first Monday of each month, with the exception of our April 2010 meeting, which was held on the first Tuesday of the month. Atkinson has attended two of John Robson’s PAC meetings in the last three years: Oct. 6, 2008 (41 days before civic elections) and on Feb. 2, 2009 to announce the purchase of the St. Mary’s site. If the comment “I’d like to be able to attend and hear what concerns they’ve got and answer any questions” is correct, we will be looking forward to a regular attendance from trustee Atkinson next year. Top of our agenda will be “when will we get a new seismically sound school built?” and “when will the school district business company pay back the money it owes our children?” Andrea Walton and Jayne Adetola-Ogundehinde, John Robson PAC executive

Oil: Gulf disaster speaks for itself ◗ continued from page 6

Notice of Sidewalk Patio Application

of the drill makes this a really difficult problem. Someday in my lifetime, we’ll hit peak oil, the point at which we’re finding less and less oil while using more. We know we’re going to have to wean ourselves off oil. But before the Gulf disaster, we didn’t think much about the hazards of the long, downhill slope after peak oil. If all our oil comes from difficult, inaccessible places, does that increase the likelihood

of more disasters like this one? I think it probably does. BP (and its competitors) would probably argue that they’re very careful, better technology, etc. But the Gulf disaster speaks for itself. How many more of these can we afford to sustain, just to keep oil reasonably priced for a few more years? Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance, a sister paper of The Record.

Tory claims HST a ‘Liberal-NDP conspiracy’ afleming@royalcityrecord.com

Small business owners will be among those hit hardest by the HST, which, according to a press release sent by the president of the party’s newly created New Westminster Constituency Association, is part of “a Liberal-NDP conspiracy to make redundant our inalienable right and responsibility to govern ourselves.” Brian Laeser, 47, is concerned consumers will turn away from small businesses when the new 12 per cent tax kicks in next month. “We all know consumers are the ones who pay in the end,” said Laeser. “But consumers can always defect to the big-box stores where the products are cheaper.” He also believes the NDP’s opposition to the harmonized sales tax is hypocritical. “Big-box stores serve their extreme left totalitarian purpose to impose a social order, which the workplace is the ideal environment for,” he said.

Zero tolerance for trouble City police are cracking down on misbehaviour in New West parks

BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster police have a warning for anybody causing trouble in the city’s parks and recreation facilities: There will be a zero tolerance approach. According to a press release from New Westminster Police Sgt. Gary Weishaar, the current parks regulation bylaw prohibits people from being in the park after dusk and from conducting themselves in a disorderly or offensive manner. “Individuals who are found to be committing any criminal activity in the park area or conducting themselves in such a manner that contravenes the parks bylaw will be prohibited from entering any parks, culture and recreation

facility for 90 days,” said Weishaar. He added that those committing criminal offences will be arrested, and $230 violation tickets will be issued for liquor offences such as possessing liquor, being intoxicated in public and minors in possession of liquor. Enforcement in parks is being conducted by New Westminster city security patrols, with assistance from the New Westminster Police Service and citizens’ Crime Watch volunteers.

City police look into Penticton death

tigations section travelled to Penticton last Friday to start their investigation, and they spent several days interviewing witnesses. According to a press release from New Westminster police Sgt. Gary Weishaar, investigators from the New Westminster Police Service are looking at all aspects of the incident. “The investigation continues in order to determine the actual sequence of events, along with any other possible contributing factors,” said Weishaar. “The assigned investigators have now been able to interview numerous witnesses who have provided their observations, as they continue to gather all evidence related to this incident.” Because the death occurred while the man was in custody, an outside police agency was called to investigate. The RCMP has also notified the Commission for Public Complaints against the RCMP.

Park: Westminster Pier site benefits from extended timeline ◗ continued from page 1

could help the city complete more of the park, by reducing some costs. “They up the price,” he said of contractors who know they have a limited time to complete work. “They know it is going to be difficult for them.” According to Purdie, about 100 people will be working on landscaping and surface work of the project, once the heavy piling and concrete deck work is done. Now, fewer people will need to be on the site doing surface work at the same time. “It’s doable, but it becomes a problem to coordinate and man-

age,” he said about having various contractors on the site at once. “It requires people to work longer days.” Because the park has a fixed budget and “pricing will be better than it would have been otherwise,” Purdie anticipates that the extended timeline will allow the city to build more of the park. “What we will be discussing with staff and council is exactly where that would go,” he said about the cost savings. “We have a master plan for the whole site. It will be a little bit more of the master plan.” Blair Fryer, the city’s manager

Purdie said the soil that was on the site that was determined to be above the standard allowed for a park, which is a residential standard, has been removed and replaced. He’s optimistic that a contract for pilings will be awarded next week, with that work to begin soon after.

Join the fun at Sapperton celebration

BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Organizers of the Sapperton Day Street Festival are hoping community members will join them in celebrating the start of summer. The annual event takes place on Sunday, June 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the 400 block of East Columbia Street. The event fea-

tures crafts, a BMX bike show, bouncy castles, clowns, games, live performances, a pancake breakfast, a rock-climbing wall, vendors and more. “It’s a community event to celebrate Sapperton,” said event manager Guy Ciprian. “All the proceeds help the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation.” This year’s event will be raising funds to support Royal

ColumbianHospitalFoundation’s campaign to raise $1.2 million for urgent equipment needs and $1.1 million for its breast health centre. Last year’s event raised $8,100 for equipment and patient care enhancements at the local hospital “It’s a great time,” Ciprian said about the event. “Last year our attendance was way up – we estimate over 10,000 people on

the street.” A pancake breakfast will kick off the day’s fun. The Wesgroup and the McBride-Sapperton Residents’ Association are cohosting the breakfast in the parking lot at 450 Columbia St., with proceeds going to the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation. “There is lots of new stuff,” Ciprian said about this year’s event. “Currently we have over

45 vendors.” Entertainment includes performances by the Knots and the Real Canadian Rock Band. The event includes a silent auction, a visit by Fin (Canucks mascot) and Salty (the Port Authority mascot), as well as politicians and Senator Yonah Martin.

Seniors need more support Advocates say lack of in-home support and affordable housing are hurting city’s seniors

BY JANAYA FULLER-EVANS REPORTER jfuller-evans@royalcityrecord.com

Seniors in New Westminster need more in-home and assisted living support, as well as affordable housing in the city, said Rachel Tutte, co-chair of the B.C. Health Coalition. The city’s seniors have also suffered from the closure of the Queen’s Park Care Centre’s hospice and convalescence beds this year, she added. The closures mean seniors are forced to stay in hospices in other Lower Mainland cities, at the ends of their lives or when they’re recovering from injuries, said Tutte, a New Westminster physiotherapist who treats seniors and advocates for them. Spouses and friends have to travel to see them, and this can be isolating, she explained. “They can’t stay in their own community at the end of their life,” she said. The city also lacks enough inhome and assisted living support for seniors, Tutte said. Affordable housing is also an issue, particularly since many seniors live on fixed incomes. Tutte spoke about the concerns of the city’s seniors following a forum held by the coalition on May 14. Provincial ombudsperson, Kim Carter, spoke at the forum about her office’s ongoing investigation into the

◗ IN THE LIBRARY

Find help for heritage home renovation BY DEBRA NELSON CONTRIBUTOR editorial@royalcityrecord.com

I

f last week’s wonderful Heritage Home Tour has inspired you to tackle your own restoration, make the library your first stop. Begin with the library’s heritage website, www. nwheritage.org. Here you’ll find a wealth of information on New Westminster homes,

including those featured on previous tours. You can research your own home, find out if it’s on the heritage inventory or has an official heritage designation and look to see if there are historical photographs of the interior or exterior of your house. The section on Conserving and Restoring Your Historical House is a guide to some of the many books in the library.

If you’re wondering about the style of your older home, take a look at British Columbia Houses, a basic guide to heritage house styles in B.C., or A Guide to Canadian Architectural Styles. There are also books on specific styles such as bungalow, Arts and Crafts, Victorian and Edwardian. You can also research how the interior of your house might have looked

when it was built. Period Details, by Judith Miller, and Period Decorating, by Mary Gilliatt, look at different styles up to Art Deco and discuss correct architectural details such as doors, ceilings, windows, lighting, paint colours and furniture. Lighting for Historic Houses, by Roger Moss, demonstrates how to create a realistic period

look when selecting light sources for historic homes. When you’re planning the exterior finishing of your house, find inspiration in Painted Ladies, Daughters of Painted Ladies and How to Create Your Own Painted Lady. These wonderful collections of photographs show how complementary colours can be used to really bring out the details on Victorian houses.

Of course before all the finishing details, the hardest part is making sure the structure is sound. Renovating Old Houses, by George Nash, has practical information from fixing foundations to plumbing to chimney repair. Then you can use the books on photography and scrapbooking to help you document and preserve the memories of your hard work.

Acknowledge your ‘double life’ HEALTHWISE

DR. DAVIDICUS WONG

Y

our family and others who see you often have stable images of who you are. They think they know you well. You might, too. But what if you acted out of character? If you are known as an easygoing, perhaps even passive person, what would they think if you spoke up when someone was pushing you around? If you are seen as impatient and explosive, what if you started reflecting before acting? The news tells us of previously quiet people going postal and high school loners lashing out against their peers. Later, we learn of their underlying psychopathology and rage. Sometimes, we hear of individuals acting out of character in positive ways – ex-cons renouncing their previous careers and lifestyles and making positive contributions to society. Who are the real people? The characters others assumed them to be, or the selves acting out? And if you acted out or exploded out of character, does this reflect the real you – your hidden demons or strengths, sides of yourself long repressed, your unresolved conflicts, desires or frustrations? Is the self that acts out the real you or another you? When children act out, their actions do not necessarily reflect their real selves. In fact, there may be no reflection at all. They may be overwhelmed with emotion – anger, frustration or sadness. When adults are burnt out with work or situational stress, when their relationships are conflicted, or when they are clinically depressed, they can explode in unpredictable ways. The response of acting out might not be reflective of the immediate situation. The response itself may simply be a symptom of deeper underlying challenges.

Sometimes, acting out can be a wake-up call or a meditation gong. When we find ourselves doing things we may not normally have chosen, we may awaken to feelings and deep psychosocial issues previously out of our conscious awareness. If your life is not what you want it to be, you have a choice. You can continue to live a life of quiet desperation and risk exploding and acting out in unpredict-

able, socially inconvenient ways. Or you can acknowledge your double life – the you that you and the world are accustomed to, and the complete individual hidden from view, aching to be expressed and to feel fulfilled. We must each take up the calling to reflect, recreate and rediscover our true selves. As with the act of writing fiction, the creation of your real life is an

act of discovery. You must be authentic – true to yourself, your values and your emotions. To break out is to express yourself; you may not have chosen the song or the key, but as with jazz, you can still improvise and play the music as only you could. To break out is to sound your voice, loud and clear, and to tell your own story. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician.

Bell to soon Toll on long junior sports career

Two-sport D-man entering ninth straight season BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

After five seasons in the Western Hockey League and now entering his fourth and final junior A lacrosse season, Jarrett Toll is eager to see how it will all end. Toll captained the Tri-City Americans to the Western conference final this season, eventually losing the WHL major junior hockey championship in a five-game series to the Calgary Hitmen last month. Toll, who captained the New Westminster Salmonbellies to the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League playoff final last year, will again be wearing the C for the junior A box club in his ninth season playing elite junior sports. “I am very fortunate to have had a career like this. I count my blessings,” said the right-handed hockey defender and transition lacrosse player. “I’ve been able to play for two great organizations in two of the best sports. I wouldn’t change my life for anything.” In five seasons with Tri-City, the stayat-home D-man scored 25 goals and 79 assists in league and playoff hockey, while fashioning a career plus-91. On the hardwood floor of Queen’s Park Arena, the 21-year-old Toll has tallied 30 goals and 31 assists to date in his B.C. junior A career. He says playing both of Canada’s summer and winter national sports at high level has taught him volumes. “The minute we show up and think we have it won, we’re going to be destroyed,” Toll said. And the 5-11, 190-pound defender brings that honesty and intensity with every shift. In the WHL, the Americans entered the Christmas break with a 12-point lead in the division, but gave up the lead at times before giving up home-ice advantage in the conference final. “The end of the regular season wasn’t very good but our playoff run was a great experience. It was too bad we couldn’t pull it out,” Toll added. “I’m done with my junior hockey career. It still hasn’t sunk in

But we have a great team here. We have a lot of potential, but we have to use it and take advantage of the opportunity.” Although undrafted into pro hockey, Toll has not given up on any career ambitions. If he fails to catch on with a minor pro organization, Toll says his next option would be to go to a Canadian university on a hockey scholarship. He says the slight of not having his name called at the NHL draft has moulded him, in part, to the player he has no

become. “I work off that,” he said. “I feed off of it and work as hard as I can every shift. I can’t really change personalities in sports. I can’t take off any shifts. I have to run the floor and try to motivate the players.” And trust Toll to lead his followers into the second half of the B.C. lacrosse season with renewed energy. On Tuesday, the junior Salmonbellies upset the defending provincial champion Coquitlam Adanacs 9-8 on Walt Weaver night at at Queen’s Park Arena. Toll con-

tributed two assists in the contest, leaving the junior A ‘Bellies as the only undefeated team in the league at 6-0-1. The first of Toll’s helpers came on a shorthanded goal by Tyler Digby in the opening period. The second came off a turnover at mid-floor that resulted in an 86 breakaway tally for Matt MacGrotty that put New West on the road to victory. It’s the perfect scenerio Toll envisions whenever he thinks ahead at how he’d ◗Toll Page 24

Jr. ’Bellies take round 1 against defending champs BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster can thank its special teams for Tuesday’s 9-8 victory over the previously undefeated Coquitlam junior Adanacs. In a battle of the two unbeaten teams in the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League, power play prowess and a solid back end proved the key ingredients for the Salmonbellies’ win over the defending provincial champs at Walt Weaver Night at Queen’s Park Arena. After a see-saw first two periods that leveled the score at 6-6 heading into the final 20 minutes, Jeff Sproule, who has been the workhorse of the junior ’Bellies in the first month of the season,

tallied his eighth goal of the season that put the home side ahead for good. New Westminster then tallied a pair of extra-strength markers five minutes apart that proved just enough for its sixth win of the year. Matt MacGrotty, on a breakaway following a turnover at mid-floor, gave the junior ’Bellies a two-goal advantage. Mark Negrin, with his second of the game and team-high 19th of the season from the left crease at 8:47 of the third period proved the game-winner. Despite taking eight more minutes in penalties than the A’s, New Westminster scored four times on its power play, all of them coming in a 12-minute span

between the second and third periods, compared to just two by Coquitlam. The Salmonbellies also scored shorthanded in the first period on a transition goal by Tyler Digby. “We took some undisciplined penalties and there were some suspect calls, but we have to play through it and be more disciplined, that’s for sure,” said Salmonbellies captain Jarrett Toll. “We lost this game (at Queen’s Park) last year, but it doesn’t mean anything at all. It’s a benchmark to see where we’re at. But we still have to get better.” New Westminster started the game looking sharp and was rewarded early, taking a 4-1 firstperiod lead.

But the game became sloppy with both teams having trouble passing and catching. At this point, whistles started blowing, which only added to the malaise. Coquitlam took advantage in the middle frame and jumped into a 6-4 lead on five straight counters, before Daniel McQuade knotted the score at sixes with a pair of extra-strength goals late in the period. Although not the game some purists were envisioning between arguably the two best teams in the league, it had all the components of a playoff matchup, said New Westminster head coach Dan Perreault. “We need games like this. It’s like playoff lacrosse. We prepared

well,” Perreault said. “You need this type of game for what’s down the road. “We had to stay focused and that’s what they did. I could tell there was nobody quitting and that’s good to see.” In the upcoming week, New Westminster will be busy catching up in the schedule to the other teams in the league. On Saturday, the Salmonbellies will be in Victoria for a rematch with the Shamrocks. They will then return home for a hosting of the Burnaby Lakers Tuesday at Queen’s Park. Game time for that one is scheduled for 8 p.m. On June 10, it’s back to the Island for a tilt with the 6-4-0 Nanaimo Timbermen.

Bill also played eight seasons with the Sr. ’Bellies, sharing three Mann Cups. Terry and Bill are third generation New Westminsterites. Their grandfather was the fire chief in the Royal City in the 1950s.

Brothers Terry and Bill Mosdell shared masters’ singles titles at the Canadian racquetball championships held at Rev’s Leisure Centre in Burnaby last weekend. Terry won the national men’s 55-plus singles title, while Bill finished first in the 55-plus consolation singles and 55-plus doubles finals. Terry also won a second medal, finishing runner-up in the men’s A doubles. The brothers both grew up

want to see his final season play out. With Coquitlam hosting this year’s Canadian junior championship tournament, the possibility is favourable for a New Westminster entry into the Minto Cup either as the playoff champion or the runner-up. Toll says getting to the final round and winning a Game 7 would be the only way to go, but his experience tells him to take it one step, and one win, at a time. “But the goal of the team is to win the league and take it from there,” he added.

Catch a great job.

Let’s face it –there are high expectations in our society regarding our performance, professionalism, output and activities. It seems I’m supposed to be a highoutput, multi-tasking entrepreneurial networker, who’s up-to-date on the latest advances in technology and trends in my sector, while also managing my many Gregg Taylor relationships and arriving at meetings on time. Whew! The reality is that I don’t do everything equally well. It seems that the harshest judge of my abilities or missing abilities is the judge in my head. I want to do everything well, but I’m not ‘good’ at everything. We humans are miraculous beings with amazing capabilities. But the phrase “I’m only human” also applies, referring to the humbleness that comes from having, and admitting limitations. Like the flip side of a coin, or the Ying to the Yang, I have weaknesses that work in tandem with my strengths. My ability to retain and focus on details is also a weakness when I lose sight of the big picture. My entrepreneurial ability to see opportunities and create business ideas can also result in a fragmented business as I try to tackle too many projects at once. I also have weaknesses that stand on their own like my lack of artistic drawing skills or my inability to do complex math calculations. In his book titled Go Put Your Strengths to Work, Marcus Buckingham makes the bold assertion that we should stop worrying about and focusing on our weaknesses. Instead he contends that we should spend our efforts and energy building on our strengths. Sure, some weaknesses can be overcome through learning or practice. Buckingham asks the question, why spend all our energy identifying, thinking about, and working on our weak points, when we can experience far greater and faster results building on our natural gifts and strengths? Imagine living day to day immersed in personal and work activities that play to your strengths rather than those that highlight your weaknesses. If you would like to learn more about your strengths call 604-434-1177 to sign up for an information session about the Transitions program, our no-fee (government funded) three-week career exploration program, available to anyone who is unemployed, under-employed and eligible to work in Canada.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: A long focus on enjoyment, romance, self-indulgence and children’s affairs ends now. The two months ahead turn your attention to work. At the same time (especially if you were born before March 24), luck returns. A legal, far travel, educational, intellectual or cultural influence enters also. You might work hard on a travel, educational, legal (etc.) project, and have some luck in these. Or you might just fly with your luck and travel urge, far away from work! Your life is changing, and it might do so with unexpected or exhilarating suddenness early this week! You’ll be busy!

Dogs

Cancer June 21-July 22: Lie low, contemplate, conserve energy for the next two weeks. Fulfil obligations, handle governmental and administrative tasks, and complete neglected tasks in any area. Spend time with yourself, re-connect spiritually, be charitable. Contemplate and plan. Be ambitious early week – an unexpected event or influence could bring sudden good career or business luck for the next three months! Perhaps related, the last seven months of “wild ride” in money now dissolves, leaving you financially steadier. For the next two months, success will depend on your ability to communicate and travel.

Taurus April 20-May 20: A major inspiration or eye-opener might occur the first few days – a secret wish could come true, or a financial step bring you unexpected security! Lie low Sunday/Monday – your energy needs re-charging. Now to late July, you’ll bring a new determination and intensity to romantic, creative and sports zones. The friction that might have marked your domestic sphere since last October now fades. Peace returns! Your energy and charisma rise Tuesday to Thursday – you attract others, and your luck surges. Start things, get things done. Chase money – diplomatically! – Thursday eve to Saturday.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your popularity, optimism and happiness continue to brighten, especially Thursday to Saturday! A wish (or many little wishes) can come true over the next two weeks. Entertainment, light romance, flirtations and social invitations pop up here and there. A lucky, unexpected event could occur in your legal, travel, educational, cultural or publishing sphere. This happens almost in the same moment (day, week) as you give up your anger about something in these same areas. For the next two months, more money will flow to you – make sure it doesn’t flow through you. A Gemini is complex!

Gemini May 21-June 20: An unexpected meeting, idea, or communication during the first half of this week could raise your hopes sky-high – and signal a new friendship, a light love affair, or a wish coming true! One warning: take care that secrets do not interfere with your reputation, standing or ambitions, especially mid-week. Rest, lie low Tuesday to Thursday noon. Contemplate, plan. Your energy and magnetism soar Thursday eve to Saturday – but avoid unintended sharp words. Now to late July, guard against domestic friction – a wish could come true in real estate. Renovations, construction will succeed.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Be ambitious this week and next. For the last seven months, financial, lifestyle and sexual matters have held you back, perhaps disconcerted, even frightened you. This ends – for the two months ahead you take these matters in hand, control, enliven, push and solve them. Your sexual magnetism soars for seven weeks. A change, an event or new atmosphere enters early week; it “kicks off” a summer of luck in all these areas: sex, intimacy, finances, investments, lifestyle changes, research and your connections to other people’s money. Many developments this week: avoid deception, anger!

June 6 - 12

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Pursue legal, educational, travel, cultural and love objectives this week and next. They enliven and challenge, succeed and frustrate this week. A Gemini (or Virgo) might be involved. Keep an even keel. If your urge to wed and your urge to partner are not represented by the same person, stop. Early week brings an unexpected change, a lucky, unpredictable, fresh exhilaration in love, partnership, contractual and relocation zones, now to early September. This might be “it,” Libra, or it might merely be a precursor of a similar, huge trend in 2011. Prepare for excitement!

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Tackle chores this week and next. You might feel a little frustrated or “neglected by the universe” because opportunities are just not coming your way. This is a good thing, for the opportunities that face you this month and next are traps in disguise. Be patient! Avoid all legal hassles June/July. Exceptions: you might sign legal papers to buy or sell real estate, to protect a child, for a retirement plan, etc. – fine. This whole area (security, kids, real estate, etc.) “wakes up” as new, enlivening, unpredictable, mostly lucky events enter now to September. Midweek’s mellow.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Many secrets will be revealed this week and next (mostly this week) – be a detective. Be silent, watch and listen. Your sexual, intimate urges rise to the surface: lust won’t be a stranger! (But he/she might be.) The anger, impatience and temperamental relations with higherups that have marked your career scene since last October now disappear.A new, unpredictable, friendly, monetarily lucky influence enters your work sphere, now to September. At the same time, a job could end. You’ll socialize with co-workers, June/July. Work hard Sunday/Monday. Beware deception mid-week.

Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Love, romance, creative urges, pleasure, beauty, charming kids, speculation, sports fill the two weeks ahead. You could fall in love, especially late this week! But avoid self-deception (and deceiving others) – and realize the one who makes your heart flip and the one you lust after might not be the same person. If so, stop, think before proceeding. The next two months could be very sexual; an affair is possible. Possible, too, that you’ll just talk about it. Secrets are shared – and will “out.” A new, lucky and sociable influence fills June to September. Anger from others ends!

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Partnerships, relationships, opportunities, challenges from others, relocation themes, negotiations, contracts, marriage and/or divorce – these concerns fill the two weeks ahead. The road will be uneven – rocky, frustrating, exhilarating, successful, joyful, maddening, etc. For success, avoid two “traps” 1) deception or being too mistrusting, especially around Tuesday/ Wednesday; 2) anger or sharp words, especially around Thursday/Friday. Everything is possible, even true love! Now to September, romance, creativity “wake up” luckily! All June/July, be diplomatic with temperamental bosses.

Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Focus on endings and new beginnings, on nurturing, home, kids, real estate, retirement, security, Mother Nature, for two weeks. You might end an association, especially Thursday to Saturday. If you don’t do it in anger, it’s justified. An unpredictable, fresh, lucky, odd influence enters your money and earnings sphere now to early September – this could bring an unexpected and freeing event, or that event might come in 2011, first half. Be flexible, opportunistic. A long period of hard work eases up now. All June/July, relationships will intensify – expect heat, anger and attraction! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
