Trust issues raised over Massey plans Meeting reveals a community that questions how sincere the city is about replacing aging theatre with a new 1,000-seat facility BY ANDREW FLEMING REPORTER afleming@royalcityrecord.com

Representatives of the school district and city met with members of New Westminster’s arts community Tuesday night to discuss the undetermined future

of the aging Massey Theatre. Around 50 people attended the meeting at Centennial Community Centre to discuss the proposal for a new performing arts centre to replace the Massey Theatre with a theatre in a newly constructed New Westminster Secondary School, one of three new schools scheduled to be built in the next few years. “Ground isn’t being broken tomorrow, which is a good thing,” said Greg Magirescu, the city’s manager of arts and cultural development and the selfdescribed “link to city hall” for the Royal City’s artistic community. “We want you

to think of this as us and us, not us and them.” The sentiment wasn’t entirely embraced by many of those in attendance, who expressed doubt about the city’s financial commitment to replacing the Massey. Judging by the loud applause that greeted a question asking about the actual necessity of knocking down the 60-year-old landmark in the first place – which city administrator Paul Damatino says suffers from “serious seismic issues” and would cost a bare minimum of $8 to $10 million dollars just to upgrade to code – many are strongly opposed to the idea and are

unconvinced a proposed new theatre with a capacity of 1,000 seats can replace the Massey or adequately fill the needs of New Westminster’s artistic community. Many arts groups would also face difficulty surviving the three years it will take to build. “I think one of the biggest issues is trust,” said Coun. Bill Harper the following day. “People will have to take an actual look at the commitments and actions the school board and council have taken.” Harper said the current city council is firmly committed to helping the city’s art ◗Theatre Page 9

CATCH OF THE DAY

E-mail scam targets local businessman Hacker claimed to be city man injured and stuck in Spain BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

Neil Douglas is pretty well-known in the world of music, but the owner of the Neil Douglas Guitar Shop on 12th Street was alarmed to hear 30 of his friends calling and asking him if he was really hurt in Spain. “Yes, somebody hacked into my e-mail and sent all 400 people in my address book a note saying I was hurt in Spain and needed money,” said Douglas on Friday afternoon in his Royal City shop. “At least 30 people contacted me, and I had to tell them that it was a scam and I was safe. It’s almost unbelievable that this happened because I started getting all these calls.” Douglas, who said he hasn’t been to Spain since 1972, was particularly alarmed to hear members of St. Aidan’s Church, who he worked with on a project in the past, were concerned about him and thinking of sending money to help him out. The e-mail, which Douglas forwarded to The Record, was sent out on Aug. 31 and is rife with spelling, capitalization and Neil Douglas grammatical errors. The e-mail reads: Hello How are you doing, i hope you are doing good. I want to tell you something and i want you to keep this to yourself only though i know the mail would come to you as a surprise. I am out of Canada now, am in Spain, i came here for music show but things changed and i need to get back to Canada as soon as i can but i am having a little problem because i am short of cash and i need you to loan me some money so i can get back to Canada so soon. I am requesting for a soft loan of any amount you can afford me as soon as possible. If you can help me out you can have the money send to me through western union to the name Ajibade Richard and the address is Madrid Spain, when you have the money send you can let me have the sender name, amount send and the MTCN so i can get the money and i can get back to Canada as soon as i can. I would pay you back as soon as i get back to Canada so you don’t have to worry about that, i wish to be able to get back before Thursday so i would like you to help me out immediately with any amount you can afford for me. I would be hoping you would have it send and you would get back to me with the western union details so i can get the money and get back home soon. I would be waiting to read back from you soon ◗Hacker Page 9

Enrolment stable in city Majority of schools about the same as last year – except for Hume BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

The overall number of students who bustled their way back to school last week in New Westminster changed little from the previous year, according to the school district’s preliminary enrolment figures. “Enrolment is stable,” assistant superintendent Al Balanuik said. Unlike most school districts in the province, enrolment in New Westminster schools is holding strong. It’s a trend that Balanuik attributes to the school district’s efforts to pull in students with unique programming like the homelearners’ program, adult and alternate programs and virtual schools. “We’ve held our own because of the way we do business. We are very entrepreneurial,” Balanuik said. The district’s homelearners’ program, which has a head office on Sixth Street and a school on Bowen Island, continues to attract students.

“It’s obvious that we’ve hit a corner of the market,” Balanuik said about the homelearners’ program. “Obviously, we meet a need.” One school facing a significant enrolment decline is Hume Park Elementary. Last year, there were 62 students at the Sapperton school, this year the district expects 38 students. The district nixed a kindergarten class at the school this year because administrators said only two students registered. The board of education will consider whether to close the small school next month. Another change this year is the introduction of full-day kindergarten, which is being offered at some schools this year and then every school by 2011. The program will help fill classrooms in school districts where enrolment is dwindling, but for New Westminster, full-day kindergarten will bring nine new modular classrooms to already crowded school grounds next year. The district’s preliminary head count is determined by the number of students who were enrolled the previous year. Administrators won’t know the exact number of this year’s students until later this month.

The forecasts are generally quite conservative because the district uses those numbers to arrange staffing and programs of choice like French immersion and Montessori. While parents are busy getting their kids back to school, administrators are working in those first few days to finetune classroom sizes.

But it should also make us think about the way our society in general views both seniors and young people. Both of these groups experience oppression based on age. For seniors, the stereotypes of “old and feeble and set in their ways” still abound. Young people are often viewed as

“irresponsible and uncaring.” Of course, these stereotypes are discriminatory, defamatory and just plain dumb. But they persist. The new youth centre – which will be shared by seniors – offers a terrific opportunity to bridge the generations and provide role models for future members of the centre and community.

Same dogs, different breed

Dear Editor:

I have no desire to engage in lengthy polemics about the HST, especially when the main rebuttal is, to wit: “705,000-plus signatories must be right, therefore the HST is wrong.” Besides, there are too many historical precedents of a majority right being painfully wrong. Nor did I mean to diminish, insult or demean the point of view of the signatories. I do not even like the HST, nor the politicians who implemented it. In fact, politics and politicians are anathema to me, though it is commonly accepted that they qualify as necessary evil as only those with special talents can in fact be called politicians. Safeguarding the future of our children and their descendants should not be politicized. We are seeing the tree but missing the forest. The big picture is lost in the squabble for petty gains. Letter

writer Peter Marshall (Tax grab was the problem, Letters to the editor, The Record, Sept. 4) made very good arguments. Why can’t we focus then on these positive inputs instead of internecine nitpicking and ultimately costly public posturing? And, absolutely, the Liberals are unrepentant scoundrels. No, question therefore, the Liberal government is going to be wiped out. I doubt very much, though, if the incoming government will be any different from the one they replaced. Governments are interchangeable and tend to be essentially the same dogs of different breed. The fact that they are all politicians makes transitions easy. Further, since they are all of the same stripe, driven by the same ego, supported by vested interests and fed by the unfailing desire for ”public service,” it is foolhardy to expect any deviation from the norm. If anything, whatever victory there is will be hollow and short-lived.

The only consolation is that we, the electorate, has shown the bastards the door. Then we can start all over again. We do cut our nose to spite the face in the process but such is the nature of politics that we can’t live without it. That is why all this fury about the HST is (to quote what’s his name) ”much ado about nothing,” or maybe it is just a tempest in a teapot. Norman M. Ostonal, New Westminster

While most of the developed and developing world is struggling to find affordable clean energy sources, here in British Columbia we have the great fortune to be able to cherry pick from a wide assortment of them. From waves and tides and winds along our coast to water that’s endlessly flowing to the ocean from our rivers and streams, we’ve got so many renewable energy sources to choose from, and in such great abundance, that we will never be able to

use more than a fraction of what we have for our own purposes. Looking at the difficult choices our American friends to the south are currently considering, like switching to nuclear power in a big way, I have to ask why we aren’t doing more to share the clean energy resources we have in this province? I am not keen to see this planet piled deep in nuclear waste just to avoid climate change and I’m sure few others are either. When you think about it, it’s really just sheer dumb luck that we ended up with such an incredible bounty of renewable clean energy resources here in British Columbia, and it’s obvious that these clean energy resources could have an enormous impact on efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We’ve definitely got it good here in British Columbia, and because of that we should be stepping up to the plate and bringing our clean energy gifts to the table. In the end, we might even be helping to prevent nuclear waste from replacing greenhouse gases as the planet’s next environmental headache, and that’s a double win in my books. Trudy Gordon, Burnaby

Massey: Uphill battle to win support ◗ continued from page 6

under) and the city want to monopolize on provincial funding to minimize their own financial exposure. It’s a win/win for the politicians, but I venture not the public it serves. When the public sees the city spending tens of millions of taxpayers’ dollars on outdoor kids swimming pools, sports facilities, parks, car park lighting for city staff, yet are unwilling to bring a badly neglected community theatre up to a minimal operating standard, trust in those making that decision comes into question. When the city refuses to clearly commit in writing (including in the meeting handout, I would add) to a 1,000-seat theatre, trust becomes mistrust. Like some at that meeting, I also have a background in construction. I can honestly state that no project I ever worked on gets underway without a budget in mind. No renovation versus rebuild ever gets started until a detailed cost analysis is completed stating the financial pro’s and cons. Yet we were told that has not been

done. If that is true and no cost analysis has been completed, then logically, money is not the issue and to reiterate my above statement, the funding source is the only other reason. In short, the 60-year-old heritage Massey Theatre is being torn down because none of our elected officials can think outside the box and raise the funds to renovate it. You will get no support from the taxpaying public until that perception is resolved. By all means, come up with a viable reason that the building is in any way untenable but don’t tell us its destruction is simply due to the province not contributing enough funds so the City of New Westminster doesn’t have to. This is a civic community facility, not a provincial one. The Massey Theatre does have a federal connection in its name, so perhaps federal funds are available. We were informed that this project will go to tender as a design/build proposal to three contractors. Can we honestly believe that we will end up with a “state-of-the-art”

facility comparable or better than the existing one could be, with contractors scrambling to submit a low price just to get the job? If demolition is the only way forward, I would suggest that the theatre portion be clearly designed and specified long before demolition starts. That way we can all agree on what “state-ofthe-art” means before it’s too late and lack of funds waters down this important facility to the equivalent of a school gymnasium. Because this project is to be largely provincially funded, it is not difficult to believe that school needs will be the first priority and the new theatre will only get what’s left of the funding. The city can’t object to that pecking order of funds if it is not prepared to financially ante-up. In your position, you have an uphill path ahead and I hope my thoughts and observations help you on your journey to bring about a successful conclusion to this vital community issue.

Sincerely yours, Gavin Wishart

For the record An article in the Sept. 4 Record contained incorrect information. According to a records check through the development services department at city hall, the cherry trees pictured in the story “Neighbour laments fallen cherry trees” are on a property at 711 – Fifth Ave. and that property is owned by a company called York House Holdings, with a business address of 2000 – 777 Hornby St. in Vancouver. Blue Sky Properties does not own the site and did not have anything to do with the trees being cut down. The Record regrets the error and apologizes for any confusion it may have caused.

‘Con Air’ sends another one back to Ontario The Con Air program has sent another person back to Ontario to face charges. On Sept. 3, 40-year-old Steven Allan Murray was arrested by New Westminster Police Service members. On Thursday, Murray was escorted back to Ontario and turned over to Stratford officials.

Murray first came to the New Westminster police’s attention on Aug. 25 when members of the service’s operational support unit found Murray in the 800 block of Carnarvon Street. A records search revealed that Murray was wanted on multiple warrants, for sexual assault, aggra-

back to their home province to face justice. The program, touted by police and politicians as an effective crimefighting tool, has been operating on a grant from the provincial government, and Murray is the seventh person to be escorted out of the province by the police since 2008.

◗ CRIME IN BRIEF

Uptown assault nets charges A 28-year-old Vancouver man is in custody after a Tuesday afternoon assault in Uptown New Westminster. At 1 p.m., New Westminster police responded to a call in the 600 block of Princess Street. When they arrived, they found a 56year-old man with injuries. Witnesses told the police that the man had tried to park his commercial vehicle in a loading zone while another driver wanted to do the same with his own commercial vehicle. According to a press release from New Westminster Police Service Sgt. Gary Weishaar, the second driver became enraged, punching and kicking the victim before driving away from the area. One witness took a photograph of the incident and soon afterwards, the police located the second man and his car, parked at the end of the street. A 28-year-old Vancouver man is in custody and police are recommending charges of assault and uttering threats.

Police officers are never truly off the job if a Tuesday evening arrest is any indication. At 9 p.m. on Tuesday night, off-duty New Westminster Police Service Const. Jamie Crowston was driving in the 800 block of East Columbia Street, when he noticed a passenger van in front of him was being driven erratically. Crowston continued monitoring the van as it sped up and slowed down before he called police dispatch. When the on-duty officer arrived, he also noticed the driver’s erratic driving. After taking the 49-year-old Royal City resident back to police headquarters, the subsequent tests for breath samples led to the man being released with court documents and a future court date. The police are recommending that the driver be charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle. – By Alfie Lau, staff reporter

scene flourish – pointing to the creation of a comprehensive arts strategy, the upcoming new civic centre, the pier park project, the stage at Hyack Square, community festivals and the recent hiring of Magirescu as examples – and saying council wants to meet further to ensure performing arts groups will find adequate facilities to use during the possible construction phase. “I don’t know where the trust issue really lies with this council. We really have committed ourselves to making advances in the arts, we see it as a fundamental part of the progression of the city.” Jessica Schneider, executive director of the Massey Theatre, said her main concern is that the project will end up costing more than planned and that the proposed replacement theatre could be substandard. “The problem is not with the plan. The problem is with the assumption that the province will put up most of the cash,” she said. “The province doesn’t have an unlimited budget to put up two-thirds of the cash. So if you don’t know the cost of the project, how can you know who is paying what? If the city pulls out because the costs are no longer worthwhile to them, then we end up with a 650-seat theatre.” Harper admitted that the arts community has some reason for a degree of skepticism because of decisions made by previous city councils. “There have been a number of promises made over the years – for a new arts centre for instance (this is before my time as a councillor), one that was going to be in the CIBC centre and another about the

high school that would have this ‘centre of achievement’ with an arts centre – and that all sort of collapsed for a number of reasons, most of which were valid. “I think people have difficulty getting their heads around the whole notion that to preserve the theatre was way more expensive than to build a new one for the city because the Ministry of Education is paying two-thirds of it,” Harper said. Under the proposal, the Ministry of Education would fund 500 seats, and 150 more would be paid for through the provincial Neighbourhoods of Learning initiative. The remaining 350 seats would be paid for by the city. While the final decision regarding the fate of the Eighth Avenue theatre has yet to be made, Harper thinks the opportunity to have a new one built is the better option. Barry Buckland, a board member of the Massey Theatre Society and owner of Lafflines Comedy Club, reluctantly agreed. “Is it the perfect menu? No,” said Buckland. “Is it the best? Most likely. They’ve been trying to get this thing settled since ‘97, and I don’t think there is any other way. With the amount of brains they’ve got working on this, I’ll bet they’ve thought of every possible way. You can’t please everyone.” For his part, Harper said the city would be committed to seeing a minimum of 1,000 seats built. “I don’t know why people there were so wound up in the cost. What I think it was for a lot of those people who spoke about the issue of trust, they really just want to preserve the old theatre.”

A visible presence: Const. Jackie Suchodolski used to work as an undercover cop, buying drugs off of dealers. Now, she’s a school liaison officer, keeping an eye on students at New Westminster Secondary and investigating cases of Facebook bullying and teens sharing too much information about themselves online.

onst. Jackie Suchodolski stuffs a small plastic bag into her desk drawer. “Let me just put my marijuana away,” she says. The New Westminster Secondary School liaison officer is in her office at the high school on a warm June morning. The pot that Suchodolski jokingly called “hers” was found in an unlucky student’s locker. It will later be taken to a police weigh station, then it’ll get fried at a “super-secret” burn facility. As for the student’s fate, Suchodolski says when they find drugs, it’s an automatic suspension. Parents are notified, and the student gets mandatory drug counselling when they

return to school. “I speak to them about the legal ramifications. If they are caught dealing, I will look at charges or restorative justice,” she says. “The Youth Criminal Justice Act allows us to use our own discretion.” They go case-by-case in order to possibly save the teens from the bondage of a criminal record. “The majority of the students here are great kids, you know. You get into that age that you make mistakes. We don’t want these kids to have a criminal record if they can help it,” says Suchodolski, whose black hair is pulled back in a tight pony tail. She has an authoritative presence (a job requirement, probably), but a soft smile. “I’m very impressed with the way the school and the school district handles the kids here. They are fair, and

they are firm,” she says. The 38-year-old has been in policing for seven years. Before she started at the high school in January, Suchodolski worked in the street-crime unit as an undercover detective. “I was working deep undercover, buying drugs off drug dealers,” she says. She did a lot of surveillance work. The hours were long, the work demanding. “You could put in a 10-hour shift, and something would happen, and you have to stay,” she says. As a single mom of two pre-teen daughters, Suchodolski wanted a regular schedule. Her hours at the school – 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. – mean she has more time with her kids. Another change for Suchodolski is that she now regularly wears her uni-

form to work. As an undercover officer, the goal was to blend in, which gave her a different perspective. “You actually see they don’t know who you are. You can be any civilian. They carry on their criminal activity, and it’s right in front of you,” she says. “When I came to the school, part of the mandate was they want a visible presence because they want to make the school safe.” One of the most significant threats to student safety is Facebook, Suchodolski says. A lot of online bullying goes on between students on the social networking site, she says. “Quite often, I have kids come in and say they were bullied on Facebook – threatened to be beaten up,” Suchodolski says. When Suchodolski hears about it, ◗Cop Page 12

French choir looking for new members

Calling all chanteurs et chanteuses. The francophone choir Les Échos du Pacifique is recruiting new members for the fall season, and it’s holding an open house this Monday for anyone who’s interested. The open house will give interested singers a chance to check out the choir as it launches its 37th

season. The four-part choir welcomes singers of all voice types – soprano, alto, tenor and bass. “What better way to practise French than to do so two hours a week in a fun, stress-free social setting?” said conductor Luke Mayba, a teacher at New Westminster Secondary School. “Singing in French is doubly enriching, since

francophone cultural traditions are revealed in the lyrics we learn.” For those wondering whether their French is good enough to join, Mayba warns that rehearsals are conducted in French. But he does add some reassurance for those who may not be completely fluent. “We spend a lot of time working on proper pronunciation. As a

footprints,” Suchodolski says. With a couple of ‘tweens at home, Suchodolski knows all about the allure of Facebook. “My youngest is nine … Facebook is not an option. She’s not happy because the older one is on it,” she says. Suchodolski’s 13year-old has a Facebook account, but Suchodolski says she has access to her daughter’s password, and they keep the computer in the kitchen. “I always tell people, ‘Don’t let your kid have a

computer in their room,’” Suchodolski says. Since she’s started at the high school, Suchodolski is working to raise awareness about the perils of Facebook and other issues. This year, she plans to host seminars about abusive relationships, drugs, safe driving and bullying. She’s also involved in the RockSolid anti-bullying campaign at the high school, which the New Westminster Police Service helps fund. Over the summer, Suchodolski taught at the Justice Institute, where

Grade 11 and 12 students who are thinking about a career in policing get a chance to study it. “These are people who are wanting to possibly do this in the future, as a job,” Suchodolski says. “It’s a miniature mock version of what we go through once we’re hired.” Suchodolski recommends a career in policing because it’s a “global career” that offers the chance to do a variety of different roles. Her own experience – going from an undercover officer to school liaison – exemplifies that

variety. Suchodolski loves her current role because she’s helping create a sense of safety at the high school. “The kids can come to me if they don’t know where else to go to,” she says.

Centre first of its kind in Canada

Next week will mark the historic opening of the much-anticipated Youth Centre at Moody Park. The new centre will offer 4,000 square feet of space for teens to do more than just kill time after school and on weekends. “It is a very inviting and attractive place that anyone would be proud of,” said Joy Barkwill, City of New Westminster manager of seniors and youth services.“It speaks to the respect the community has for youth, to provide such a space.” The Youth Centre is connected to Century House, one of the first seniors’ leisure centres of its kind in Canada, serving older adults since 1958. Century House members can use portions of the Youth Centre during the day until 2:30 p.m. When school gets out, after 3 p.m., it’s turned over to the teens, aged 13 to 18. The centre will have a youth lounge, multipurpose gym, fitness centre, computer room, kitchen and a flexible office space for youth services. “We had a youth task force, made up of youth, seniors, city staff and

partner agencies that spent several months on (planning) the space,” said Sandon Fraser, the city’s youth services coordinator. New Westminster Youth Employment resource centre is interested in doing workshops for youth, Fraser said.There will also be inter-generational programming with seniors, including community cleanups, pool tournaments and seasonal events, like pumpkin carvings at Halloween.

For the youth, there will be yoga, a homework club, cooking classes and personal training.The centre will also host dances and movie marathons. “We’ll have basic drop-in programs, bubble hockey, foosball, drop-in sports,” Fraser said. While they already have a number of fun options for teens, Fraser said they will continue to look to the

centre’s young users for feedback on what kind of programs they want at the centre. “It’s their space, and we want them to know it’s their space,” he said. To celebrate the opening, the city is holding a kick-off celebration on Wednesday, Sept. 15, from 3:30 to 9 p.m. at Moody Park.

Politicians, supporters and members of the Youth Centre and Century House gather to kick off the fundraising and building projects in 2009.

Community’s generosity shows in fundraising Fundraising for the new Youth Centre at Moody Park was boosted by the likes of a big-league ballplayer and a major corporation. Hometown hero Justin Morneau and his wife, Krista, sponsored the multi-purpose room in the city’s new youth centre. Another major contribution came from the Kraft Celebration Tour. New Westminster earned a $25,000 donation from Kraft Canada for the new youth centre, a community barbecue and a live broadcast from TSN’s SportsCentre, after beating out Nelson through an online challenge. Along with the highprofile donations, there was a hefty amount of local community support that helped raise the $200,000 needed for furnishing, fixtures and equipment. “We have had tremendous community support. It’s been remarkable.The rest of the community were very, very generous,” said Joy Barkwill, the City of New Westminster’s manager of seniors and youth services.

Along with the Morneaus, other room sponsors were: Westminster Savings, Century House Association, G & F Financial Group, Rotary Club of New Westminster and Royal City Rotary. It was youth advisory committee member Isabel Gomez-Garcia and Century House representative Jan Greenhow who pounded the pavement to raise money for the cause. “These two were amazing,” Barkwill said.“

They worked so hard, and they were such credible representatives. “They were so supportive and understood the value of the project,” she added.“They both so eloquently represented both of the age groups.” The fundraising timeline was a tight one. “It was kicked off last September,” Barkwill said. But still, they managed to pull it off. One of the reasons they were so

successful, Barkwill said, is because New Westminster “values” its young people. “We recognize that an investment is our youth is very important, and that our youth deserve it,” she said. “When you see a need, you respond to it.” Construction of the new facility was made possible thanks to a joint investment of $2.75 million from the City of New Westminster, the provincial government and

Generations worked together on centre Almost seven years ago, the bid to build a youth centre began, and this week the fruits of all that labour will be realized with the opening of the new centre. The reason the centre is coming to life is that the seniors of Century House got behind the plan to build

a place for young people. Originally, Century House members wanted to expand their space, but they noticed that youth were advocating for somewhere of their own. “Seniors decided they wanted to show their support when the needs of youth were still outstanding,

they felt the need to support the needs of youth before their own,” said Joy Barkwill, the City of New Westminster’s manager of seniors and youth services. What they discovered was that if they expanded Century House, which is situated in

Paolo Zenone and Ivan Dragelj move a foosball into the new youth centre.

Moody Park, they could share space with the Youth Centre.The seniors and teens could share the space, without ever stepping on one another’s toes because they had opposite schedules. What they realized was that youth were more likely to use the space after school and on weekends, whereas seniors needed the space in the day. Century House members will have use of the facility until 2:30 p.m. and then the teens will have it from 3:15 to 9:15 p.m., Monday to Thursday, and until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Century House currently has 1,800 members, and it’s those members, along with hardworking youth, that helped make the Youth Centre possible. “We have a very strong and effect membership in Century House,” Barkwill said. Barkwill said the crossgenerational partnering of a community facility like this is the first of its kind in Canada. “So we are forging ahead,” she said.“So far, it seems to be working well.”

Catholic church has long history in city OUR PAST

ARCHIE & DALE MILLER

T

wo days from now, 150 years ago in 1860, Catholic church history records: “On Sept. 13, 1860, we were able to establish a mission at New Westminster from which place we are attending the outposts of Forts Douglas, Hope and Yale and places dependent on them (in the) Fraser Valley from the Cascades to the sea, and

some Indian villages on the coast … Father Fouquet in charge …” Father Fouquet further noted that he, Father Grandidier and brothers George Blanchet and Gaspar Janin were sent to the Fraser River, where at the site selected for the mission, they commenced “felling gigantic trees, many of which measured two hundred feet in height and nine feet in diameter at the base” as they toiled to clear adequate land for a church (actually two churches), a house and a garden. With this arrival in September of 1860, the Catholic Church joined the Methodists and the Anglicans in the new

city, New Westminster. One of the ways to look at the history of a group is to examine the building or buildings they build and use. The Catholic Church has, over the years, been very involved in this community, and many edifices, large or small, architecturally prominent or simply functional, have played roles in the Royal City. The first structure was the simple mission church on Columbia Street near

Blackwood with its partner church for the local First Nations a few blocks up the hill. These started a long legacy of involvement in, and regular interaction with, the town that was their base of operations on the mainland. Of the two buildings just mentioned, the former was St. Peter’s and the latter St. Charles, while the overall mission was also named St. Charles. The second St. Peter’s, built on Blackwood Street

has intriguing descriptions: “ its shining walls and tall spire make it one of the most conspicuous objects in the city. The style is gothic, … outside walls are supported by buttresses. … The tower … 150 feet above the sidewalk … bears a gilt cross.” The history of these buildings and this church will be told in a presentation by the New Westminster Historical Society on Wednesday, Sept. 15, starting at 7:30

p.m., in the auditorium of the New Westminster Public Library. The slide presentation will include many stories of the sites and includes some great images of the buildings and hillside. A walking tour on Sunday, Sept. 19, starting at 1:30 p.m. on the New Westminster city hall lawn at the corner of Fourth Street and Royal Avenue will visit the locations of these significant sites and add even more stories.

Our conservative approach makes the market less of a wild ride. A lot less.

Ever wonder if there are laws against stink bombs in Canada, or ever wish there were? Well, you’re in luck! According to Weird Canadian Laws, it’s illegal to use a stink bomb in public. Weird Canadian Laws is a fun and informative book about quirky laws and bylaws across Canada. (If you’re really curious, Section 178 of the Canadian Criminal Code, Offensive Volatile Substance, refers to stink bombs). Do your teenagers ignore their curfew? Well, in Churchill, Man., the current curfew bylaw states that youth 16 to 18 cannot be in a public place without a parent or guardian past midnight. Youth found out after the curfew are returned home by police, and if no parent or guardian is found there, they are taken to a child-care authority until a parent or guardian can be located. Love comics? Did you know that comic books that depict illegal acts violate Canada’s Criminal Code? (section C-46, if you’d like to take a look at the Justice Canada website). Even if the events described are fictional, it’s still illegal for them to be depicted in a comic. The full text of Canada’s laws can be found online at the Justice Canada website at http://laws-lois.justice. gc.ca. If you want to find out more about Canada’s legal system, try the books Looking at Law: Canada’s Legal System or The Courts, both of which can be found in the reference department and the circulation department. If you prefer a question-and-answer format, Your Guide to Canadian Law: 1,000 Answers to the Most Frequently Asked Questions might be your legal cup of tea. Of course, the library also has a copy of Black’s Law Dictionary, if you are curious about specific legal terms. Satisfy your curiosity about Canadian law, comics and much more at the New Westminster Public Library. FEATURING:

Help for families coping with dementia HEALTHWISE

DR. DAVIDICUS WONG

A

s a teenager, Susan couldn’t wait to move out to escape from her domineering sister. She would eventually marry a loving husband and together enjoy raising three children. When her youngest daughter graduated and moved out on her own, she thought her parenting days were over. But five years ago, her father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. With this progressive form of dementia, he became increasingly dependent. At first, he needed help with money management, housekeeping and cooking. He lost his driver’s licence, and after he got lost taking the bus, she drove him everywhere. Eventually, she accom-

panied him to every doctor’s visit. She had to supervise his complicated medication schedule, laying out the blister packs each evening, ensuring all the day’s pills were taken and calling him from her office to remind him of the morning and noon doses. She was doing more laundry now than when her kids were home. Her dad’s underwear and trousers were soiled from incontinence. Susan loved her dad and didn’t mind giving him whatever he needed, but she was feeling burnt out, and she resented her sister who did little to help. She was also worried because her father would soon need to move to a long-term care facility. He had planned to live in his home for the rest of his life. She dreaded having to lock horns with her sister in sharing the decision-making regarding these living arrangements, his finances and his medical care. Throughout their lives, they could never

agree. But Susan faced her greatest heartache every day when her father would talk about her mom as if she was still alive. She once corrected him and, reminded of the terrible grief he relived at that moment, she couldn’t put him through that pain again. Her father had taught her to be honest, and she wondered if it was OK to lie to him now and what the father of her childhood would have thought about that. The ethical framework of medicine is centred on autonomy – the individual’s freedom of choice. Informed consent requires that we explain the risks and benefits of various treatment choices and not subject patients to treatments and investigations they do not choose. The principle of truth-telling directs us not to deceive or withhold important information. It can conflict with the first rule of medicine – to do no harm. With Susan’s father, reminding him of his greatest loss

caused him unnecessary emotional distress with no benefit. During my 10 years of ethics consultations at Burnaby Hospital, each case involved a patient who was no longer capable of giving informed consent. Their autonomy was compromised by cognitive impairment due to their medical conditions, including dementia and strokes. Spouses and family members had to share in these patients’ decision-making. Over time, the loved ones of individuals with dementia must traverse a moral minefield. At the same time, they struggle to balance their own self-care with the care of their loved ones. Family dynamics are in flux. The Tapestry Foundation for Health Care is presenting a free public lecture, Dementia and Ethical Dilemmas: Answers to Hard

Questions for Families on Friday, Sept. 17 at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Dr. Hilde Lindemann is a professor of philosophy at Michigan State University and coauthor of Alzheimer’s: Hard Questions for Families. She will offer her advice to help families cope with the difficult moral questions raised by this condition. How much should your loved one with dementia be told? Is it ever OK to lie? How can family members resolve their own disagreements about these matters and other aspects of their loved one’s care? Dr. Lindemann’s talk begins at 7:15 p.m., with check-in at 6:15 p.m. Seating is limited. Contact the Tapestry Foundation at 604-877-8312 or www. tapestryfoundation.ca. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician. His Internet radio show can be heard on www.pwrnradio.com.

Triathletes up for the challenge

Disabled pair first to complete Penticton Ironman BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Visually impaired cyclist Brian Cowie of Burnaby keeps rediscovering his potential. Cowie, a legally blind world championship medal-winning tandem cyclist, became part of the first-ever physically challenged team to complete the Ironman Canada triathlon in Penticton Aug. 29. Together with lower-leg amputee and pilot Meyrick Jones of Port Moody, Cowie placed in the middle of a field of more than 2,700 able-bodied competitors in the 226-kilometre ultra-distance race. Cowie and Jones clocked a combined time of 12:54.45 in the event, which included a 3.8-kilometre swim, 180-km bike ride and a full 42.2-km marathon run. What was even more remarkable was the fact that Jones had to spend a night in hospital just days before the start of the Ironman. “There were some people who questioned how important (the Ironman) was. But we were happy with the time. I think it was even better than we had hoped,” said Cowie, who last year raced to a bronze medal for Canada with pilot Devon Smibert in the tandem pursuit at the Paracycling world track championships in Manchester, England. Cowie, who has been a member of the Canadian national paracycling team since 1998, normally competes in road and track

An Ironman first: Visually impaired cyclist Brian Cowie, rear, and lower leg amputee pilot Meyrick Jones compete at the Ironman Canada in Penticton last month. competitions and triathlons with a sighted guide. But with the 36-year-old Jones, who lost his leg in a cable car accident in San Francisco in his early 20s, Cowie wants to push the envelope even further. In the past, both Jones and Cowie had needed support from handlers to transition between triathlon events. As teammates, they would provide the necessary support for each other, Cowie said. “We hoped to inspire, motivate and raise awareness for physically challenged athletes. Our team-

work proved that anything in the physically disabled category at the Canadian is possible,” he said. “We did it together. I national triathlon championships in was his (assisKelowna just tance) when the week he needed it, before. and he was “We did it That compemine. We don’t tition included need a handler. together.

In fact, the motivation with a first-place finish

goes beyond those who have physical challenges, he said. “It’s partly to be competitive, but it’s more of a mission and a statement to show people and hopefully we can inspire people who don’t even have any physical issues to get up.” If taken in the context of the male 55-to-59 age group, which the 58-yearold Cowie falls into, he would have finished 50th out of the 123 able-bodied competitors in the race. “We want to be more like we’re competitive, that we can do it, and we’re in the mix. That’s our thing.”

Rovers off to fast start in expanded premiership BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Late-game goals have the Sapperton Rovers sitting in fourth place after the opening weekend of the Vancouver Metro Soccer League at Newton Athletic Park. The Rovers came back to tie Punjab Hurricanes 2-2 last Saturday. They then scored a 3-2 victory over Croatia SC on the Labour Day Monday to complete the first weekend of premier division league soccer unbeaten in the new 14-team format. Matt Rosenlund and Stefan Schmidle both scored late goals

for the Rovers in the comeback win over the Hurricanes. Rosenlund and Schmidle also tallied in the win over Croatia. Burnaby’s Danny Caraiman got the other Rover marker. Sapperton was up 2-0 in the opening 13 minutes against the Croatians but surrendered two goals later in the match. “I’m quite happy we got four points out of the six,” said Sapperton head coach Thomas Mills, who merged Fraser Valley league and cup finalist Poco FC with the Rovers prior to the start of the season. With the VMSL trying a new

14-team format this season, the bottom three-finishing clubs will be subject to relegation. Last season, Sapperton narrowly missed relegation in its return to the premiership after a one-year hiatus in Division 1. “I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t a concern, but it is an issue,” said Mills. “We have a good squad of players, a lot of talent and it was a good start. The Rovers will host Akal FC in their home opener at Queen’s Park Stadium on Saturday. Game time is at 2 p.m. The Sapperton club also joined forces with the Burnaby Selects

of the Metro boys’ league to field at team in the under-21 graduate division of the VMSL. Cliff Avenue United will also contest the 12-team u-21 group. “(Burnaby) was pretty eager to do something like we were,” said Sapperton president Bryan Wevers. “In a way, we’re filling a void that was in Burnaby and New Westminster. It gives us some hope in the future with the difficulty of recruiting players. I’m really happy with how it’s gone.” The Rovers opened the grad season Sept. 11 against ICST Pegasus at Newton Athletic Turf.

The Burnaby Canadians premier women’s soccer team is setting its sights on a top-three finish in the Metro women’s soccer league this season. The Canadians finished fourth in their inaugural season last year, while also making it to the final of the league cup. This season’s club lost just one starter off last year’s roster but has added seven new faces to the squad, including graduated Simon Fraser University goalkeeper Cassie Newbrook of New Westminster, allstar midfielder Lauren Lachlan and forward Sarah Boulton. Amy Lawrence also made the step up to the premiership from Burnaby Girls’ youth soccer. “Overall, we will surely be a higher scoring team, as we have added a few strikers and a few girls that are attacking midfielder types,” said second-year Canadians head coach Matt Holbrook. “We’ve also added some more depth to our backline.” One downside to the premier division is the loss of both Richmond and Delta, which reduces the number of teams to just seven this season. Holbrook’s goal is a return to the league cup final and take a run at the Provincial Cup this season. “Lofty goals, but I think we’ve got the players to do a bit more than we did last season, and another year under our belt will surely help us get off to a better start,” Holbrook said. “We started slow last year as it took time to mould the new players together into my attacking style. But I think we’ll hit the ground running a bit better this year.” TheCanadiansopentheir 2010/11 season against the North Coquitlam United Eagles at Town Centre West Sunday, Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. Burnaby’s home opener is the following week at Burnaby North Turf against Coquitlam Metro-Ford.

Albert Edward Johnson III “Ted” January 11, 1957 – August 28, 2010

It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Ted, our brother, uncle, nephew, friend, and colleague. Ted was born in Toronto, Ontario to the late Georgina Mary Johnson (nee Reeder) and Albert Edward Johnson II. Ted is survived by his sister, Wenda Grace Allan (nee Johnson), his nephew, Curtis Gray Allan and his niece, Jillian Grace Allan. Also survived by Aunt Glady Osborne (nee Reeder) and Uncle Ted Reeder and several cousins. It is important to know that Ted is survived by his loving cat, Mr. Jimmy Cat, who resides in Powell River, B.C.! Ted grew up in New Westminster and has maintained long relationships with many friends, in particular, with school friends Linda and Randy Book, David Hogg and Mark Wisheart, who have been very supportive friends to Ted. Ted spent his professional life working in the Natural Food Industry and held a very strong work ethic. He was a natural athlete and was involved in hockey, lacrosse, track and field and held the B.C. weightlifting championship in the 1970’s. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, September 18, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. at Columbia-Bowell Chapel, 219 Sixth St., New Westminster, B.C. Reception to follow.

Were you out socializing and connecting with as many people as possible or did you spend the time quietly in your garden, hiking with close friends or hanging out in the park reading a book? As we get out and enjoy activities that are reserved for a relatively short time of the year, we can look at this snapshot as a way to inform us of our personality preferences. Myers Briggs personality assessments offer insight into who we are and what is our preferred way to engaged with the world. The above two examples are referring to people who have extraverted tendencies in the first example and introverted tendencies in the second example. Both preferences have a completely different way of reenergizing and focusing attention or engaging with the world. Part of the exploration process in our career exploration program is helping you assess and understand your preferences to make it easier to choose work that will fit you as a person. Personality type will also teach you about how you best communicate so you can teach people how to best work with you. This assessment often reduces the anxiety we often experience when we feel like we don’t fit in. Call 604-681-2774 and ask about the Transitions Program, our government funded (no fee) three-week career exploration program available to anyone who is unemployed or under employed and eligible to work in Canada.

Cancer June 21-July 22: This week starts with a romantic mood (Sunday) – and it’s a clue for the future, as a major romantic theme plays for you now through next January. If you’re single, this could have wedding bells attached. Two types of delays end early this week: the setbacks and mistakes in travel, communications and bitty details over the last several weeks,and the deeper,more subtle but powerful delays in relationships, marriage, partnership, opportunity and negotiations (since April). These resume forward motion. A lucky legal, travel, educational, love or cultural event (or “start”) is imminent! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Something will either be solved, end, or begin this week. (Gee, that was an easy prediction!) This occurs in your spheres of sexual intimacy, mutual financial resources, investments/debt, deep health, or “detective work.” (These are actually the same sphere – it’s the place of deep drives, your “engine room.”) An ally or enemy is involved. And the actual “event” is sudden, lucky, perhaps unexpected. (Lucky, but not necessarily monetarily: the exhilaration here is from freedom.) Many delays end now, especially in earnings, possessions, home, real estate and employment. Don’t look back! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness hit a yearly high. Delays end. (You might still feel indecisive, but the cure for this is to act – action creates its own decisiveness.) A new start, or the sudden solution to an old problem, or the sudden return of an old situation, occurs – it involves marriage or a partnership, an opportunity, relocation, fame, dealings with the public, negotiations, litigation, competition, or similar relationship dealings. A fivemonth delay in romantic, creative, speculative or child-oriented ventures also ends now. Thursday/ Friday contain nice clues about this.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: It’s your last week (well, 10 days) of work, drudgery and health concerns. Recent delays and mistakes ebb, giving you the freedom to charge ahead. Quickly tackle past due and new jobs. Next week will begin a month of opportunity, negotiation or wrestling with a challenge – you’ll want to be free of the chains of chores. Your sexual, financial and “deep health” zones grow more and more important – and generally lucky – now into December. This can lead to a lustful affair, an investment or settlement – all of which open lifestyle doorways. Love is a (the!) “source of health.” Taurus April 20-May 20: Romantic, creative, child-oriented and pleasure delays end. Act fast – you only have 10 days to win someone’s heart, or make your creative mark. (Of course there will be other opportunities down the road. In fact, you’ve just started a four-month run of social luck, flirtations and popularity – and light romance, if you’re single. But “light” contrasts with the present deep influence.) Sunday promotes partnerships (be diplomatic). Sex, secrets and high finance Monday to Wednesday: caution flags fly. Mellow wisdom, love Wednesday-Friday. A big (social) surprise Saturday! Gemini May 21-June 20: This week offers a sudden breakthrough in career, prestige and worldly position, or with a parent, boss or authority figure. A legal, publishing, educational or far-travel project might be involved – so might a partner, a fight or a negotiation (even potential fame). Hope, pray, have faith! Delays at home and in general end now – more subtly, elusive but quietly crushing delays (since April) in sexual, health and financial zones also end. You’ll feel more effective. The 10 days ahead feature your domestic scene, real estate, kids, security: charge ahead here, especially Friday.

Sept. 12 - Sept. 18

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A breakthrough or new start might occur in employment, machinery or health zones. (Perhaps Saturday late afternoon/supper hour – a good time to chase such things.) You’ve attracted attention, obvious or not, for the last five weeks. Now that romantic wave subsides. But your chances for sensual satisfaction (e.g., a casual affair) actually increase, now to December. Keep your eye on the long-term: 2011 through 2012 will bring partnership excitement on a level you haven’t seen for at least seven years. Delays end in law, education, publishing and travel, real estate, home and family. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: A former love or creative, speculative or child-oriented situation could return – perhaps with a bang that launches a new beginning. Delays are over in social, political, organizational, entertainment and planning activities. Also, a quiet general feeling of indecision or slowness, affecting you since last April, dissolves now. Your energy stays nicely high Sunday onward. A wish could come true this week! Your sexual and romantic magnetism are climbing, will surge through December. Chase money Monday/Tuesday. Travel, call people Thursday/Friday. Be domestic, with family Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Be ambitious – delays, barriers and mistakes are over. (Indecision lingers, but that can be solved by action. Do what makes you feel cheerful or optimistic – these are always, all life, your signal of the correct choice.) Spend Sunday resting. Tackle the world when your energy and charisma leap upward Monday through Wednesday morning. (Your home situation might interfere with your career for four months – choose career Wednesday, home later. Your family, property, security “start anew” this week in a lucky, freeing way!) Chase money, not friends, Thursday/Friday. Saturday’s lively!

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Delays end in legal, intellectual, far travel, publishing, insurance, cultural and love spheres. Chase one or more of these now, without delay. Delays also end in a more subtle, halfsensed area: within yourself, in your compass, your choices about your future – once again, you can steer your life. (At least until next April, when the spring/ summer brings the same subtle indecision. This pattern will hold for some years. Knowing this can save you wasted effort.) Past weeks mixed lust with career. Now to January, light romance, social flirtations arrive! Grab success Thursday/Friday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Delays end in sexual, financial,deephealthandlifestyleareas–makechoices in these during the next 10 days. This decade and next, each spring/summer brings quiet, unannounced delays or hold-ups to your career zone, usually from head office or a government agency. Now these delays lift – until next April. Time to act! A new monetary or earnings picture comes this week. But it’s “back to the future” somehow – a repeat/evolvement of a former situation. A romantic or heightened intellectual interest ebbs – instead, to December, “romance” enters your career zone: take care! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The accent remains on relationships, opportunities, negotiation, contracts, agreements and possible clashes. But now the future comes in – delays, indecision and faces from the past ebb, and valid new meetings, opportunities arrive. A wish might come true in this area Wednesday to Friday! More deeply, you finally will begin to seek, plan and visualize your future (and your social contacts) without dithering about the ethics or wisdom of this or that. The rest of 2010 lifts your love/romance prospects – and career luck! (Perhaps suddenly – overnight.) August/September’s “lust” fades. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
