Stranger approaches three kids Boys say a man offered to give them money BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER

Questions about possible attempted child lurings near New Westminster elementary schools seem to be escalating with the third reported incident since January. Al Balanuik, assistant superintendent of schools, sent a letter home to parents on Monday, Feb. 7 informing them that another similar incident had come to the school district’s attention, this time at Queen Elizabeth Elementary in Queensborough. In the most recent incident, a group of boys at Queen Elizabeth Elementary School were playing basketball on their lunch break on Thursday, Feb. 2 when an older man approached the boys on the playground and offered them money. The boys ran and immediately told the lunch hour supervisor. The man then left the playground and walked down an adjacent lane between the school and community centre toward Salter Street. The man is described as a slim, white male in his 50s with a grey beard. His vehicle is described as an older grey truck. In each incident, a man approached boys and tried to persuade them to come with him. Balanuik has sent five letters to parents in New Westminster since January warning of possible stranger conflicts with similar descriptions, but police say only three incidents appear to have been actual threats. “I’m aware of three actual stranger contacts,” said Det. Eamonn Ward, the officer assigned to the case. “The three incidents that I’m aware of are the ones that are actually more dramatic or where there’s actual contact or words spoken,” he said. Some police investigation has shown at ◗Safety Page 8

Mayor wants a new bridge

City still not on board with UBE BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER


TransLink may be reexamining its plan to build a new six-lane Pattullo Bridge, but mayors on either side of the bridge believe a new bridge is needed. TransLink spokesperson Ken Hardie said a business case is being prepared for two options – refurbishing the existing bridge or building a new four-lane crossing. “Our position is quite simply, why spend good money on a bad thing to do?” said Mayor Wayne Wright. “The safety issues won’t be addressed.” Wright said he believes it’s shortsighted to refurbish the existing Pattullo Bridge because it’s already more than 70 years old. He said Surrey’s mayor shares his belief that a new bridge is the best solution in the long-term. “Dianne Watts and I had a talk about it yesterday,” he told The Record Wednesday. “We are both on the same page.” TransLink was set to hold public consultation about plans for a replacement Pattullo Bridge last fall, but postponed those meetings. At the time, Hardie told The Record that TransLink has taken a step back from the planning for a replacement Pattullo Bridge because some engineers had indicated that opportunities for rehabilitation to the existing structure exist and should be considered. Hardie told The Vancouver Sun that the public consultation process will get underway in June. He said TransLink is exploring alternatives that would likely cost less, and, in the case of refurbishing the bridge, reduce the potential for tolls on another Surrey crossing. “What we’ve said all along is particularly for a new bridge, if we can’t find another source of revenue to pay for [it], that tolls are an option,” Hardie said. New Westminster Environmental Partners is celebrating the review of the Pattullo Bridge replacement as a potential first step in a smarter Metro Vancouver transportation policy. “We really must have a thorough discussion about transportation priorities in the

Bridge over troubled finances: Local mayor Wayne Wright wants TransLink to build a new bridge to replace the Pattullo instead of refurbishing it. region, and rushing a project that would create a 50 per cent increase in traffic flowing through New Westminster’s clogged streets wasn’t a solution,” said Matthew Laird, the group’s vice-president. “While there’s no doubt there are important safety concerns that needs addressing with the current bridge, NWEP has always held that any Pattullo project must not result in a net increase in capacity.” Laird said the group hasn’t taken a position on whether TransLink should rehabilitate the existing bridge or build a new crossing, but it strongly opposes any expansion of the bridge that would result in an increase in traffic. “There are safety issues,” he said about the Pattullo Bridge. “We fully acknowledge the safety issue has to be addressed.” Laird said no region in the world has

ever built itself out of congestion, so the idea of investing hundreds of millions of dollars in roads that will quickly become gridlocked is not prudent fiscal planning, especially as TransLink has numerous unfunded projects of higher priority, such as the Evergreen Line. He said TransLink should be focusing on getting cars off the road, rather than expanding capacity for vehicles. Regardless of whether TransLink decides to build a new bridge or refurbish the existing bridge, New Westminster Environmental Partners is calling on TransLink and the province to implement tolls on the Pattullo in 2013 upon completion of the new Port Mann Bridge. “Tolls on the Pattullo are essential to keep traffic where it belongs – on the new

New Westminster isn’t prepared to endorse the United Boulevard extension based on the information TransLink has provided to date. On Monday, city council will consider a staff report that recommends that the city not endorse TransLink’s proposed United Boulevard extension/North Fraser Perimeter Road development plan, and that council ask TransLink to work with city staff to revise the plan in order to satisfy the requirements of the city and TransLink. The United Boulevard extension issue reappeared at last Monday’s council meeting, when council brought a resolution out from a closed meeting into its open meeting. The resolution stated that the city not endorse the proposed United Boulevard extension/North Fraser Perimeter Road plan, and that council remind TransLink of the position it took on the matter in December and ask TransLink to submit further options for the city’s consideration. Coun. Jonathan Cote said the federal government has granted TransLink a threemonth extension to its fedJonathan Cote eral grant for the project, a decision that prompted TransLink to come back to council with some “vague” discussion of options. He said TransLink hasn’t addressed any of the issues previously raised by council, and council won’t endorse TransLink moving forward with the United Boulevard extension program with what has been presented to the City of New Westminster so far. “Council is sending a few messages to TransLink. One of those is being rushed is unacceptable,” said Coun. Jaimie McEvoy. “We won’t be rushed.” McEvoy said the availability of a federal grant shouldn’t be dictating the process. He said issues such as noise, environment and traffic impacts need to be addressed before the project is approved – not after. “The due diligence needs to be done before anything happens, regardless of whether there is money out there from other governments or not,” he said. “We need to understand what happens to our community when something is done. We need good public consultation.” McEvoy said the city has some “legislated

Town versus gown – to the death IN MY OPINION



his week marks the anniversary of the St. Scholastica Day riots. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s likely because it’s the 715th anniversary. In 1355, Oxford had already been England’s pre-eminent college town for more than a century. The town largely existed to serve the university, which existed to crank out high-level clergy, scholars, and most importantly, clerks for the King of England. These clerks weren’t just glorified note-takers, they were the backbone of King Edward III’s civil service. Without Oxford, there would be no bureaucrats in government, no one with learning to write and interpret the law. Without them, in other words, it would have just been a bunch of drunk knights with sharp bits of metal and too much testosterone. Not a recipe for calm governance. So Oxford University had special rights and exercised quite a bit of influence over how things were run in the town. Which seems to have grated on the townsfolk a little. On Tuesday, Feb. 10, 1355, two students, Walter

Spryngeheuse and Roger de Chesterfield (a.k.a. Roger de Sofa), bought some wine at a tavern in town, didn’t like it and beat the tar out of the barkeep. The tavern keeper called in friends and family, and the local constables, who tried to arrest the two finicky scholars. But oops, scholars at Oxford were technically members of the clergy and therefore not subject to town law. The university refused to punish the students. Some townsfolk apparently tried to shove their way into the university and were repulsed by a group of students. On Wednesday, things got really ugly. The mayor of the town rode off to nearby Woodstock where the king happened to be busy rolling around in the mud, getting high and listening to Jimi Hendrix. Oh, wait … wrong Woodstock. He was probably doing something king-y. Like hunting, or planning to invade France. Meanwhile, the scholars were told by their university chancellor to quit all this nonsense and get back to studying Latin. Instead, they ran amok in the town, burning and looting. That afternoon, the townsfolk armed themselves with bows and ambushed and killed several scholars, Robin Hood style. Then, backed up by several thousand peasants from the nearby countryside, the townsmen stormed the university and

One vote for Lori Watt Dear Editor:

Re: Trustee says legal opinion ‘political’ attack, The Record, Feb. 5. Best news I’ve heard yet: Lori Watt saying she “will not be pushed out of office by (Patrick) O’Connor.” Good for you, Ms. Watt – you already have my vote. Enough of this so-called “conflict of interest” nonsense. This has all the appearance of the politics of negativism, and odious personal attacks, that appeared to characterize the Voice New Westminster campaign in the last civic election – whatever happened to Steve McClurg? Let the people of New Westminster decide whom they wish to return to office in the upcoming election. Legal opinions are just that: the opinion of a ◗Oxford Page 7 lawyer.

One wonders why Mr. O’Connor singles out Ms. Watt for his attack? Casey Cook didn’t inform the electorate of his perceived conflict of interest (family member employed in the system) before his election to the board. Messrs. Atkinson and Ewen have been targets too. Enough already. If you see this as a valid issue, Mr. O’Connor, put your money where your mouth is, and proceed to the B.C. Supreme Court with your challenge. However, common sense dictates that this is a matter for the voters of New Westminster to decide. Let’s have an election campaign on the issues, not personalities and political posturing. Anyway, Ms. Watt’s position on bottled water banning should be debated on the wisdom and merits of such an approach, not on who she is employed by. The prime issue is the health of the children.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR It’s not “scare tactics”

Dear Editor:

Re: A case of political déjà vu, Letters to the editor, The Record, Feb. 9. Mr. Dave Lundy’s letter is correct in one point, in that political choice is about the nation’s future. We comprehend how to vote, partly by observing past political behaviour. That is why Jack Layton’s coalition manoeuvres in the last election were relevant to my comments about the next election and the safety and stability of Canada’s future. Mr. Lundy is incorrect about alleged “Conservative scare tactics.” To clarify again, my message is clear. The Conservatives neither want an election nor will provoke one. The focus is on ensuring that the economic recovery is maintained. An election now would put economic stability and our effort to create jobs, at risk. Prudence demands that we cannot ignore Michael Ignatieff’s recent speeches about a coming election, and Jack Layton’s double-speak. That is why thousands of average Canadians have donated to the Conservative Party, so that TV ads could be run – drawing exclusively on the record and their own words – highlighting and contrasting the record of the prime minister and Michael Ignatieff and his coalition partners, the high-tax NDP, and the Bloc Québécois, a party dedicated to the breakup of Canada. Paul Forseth Conservative candidate, Burnaby-New Westminster

Children deserve better

Dear Editor,

Jan. 31 marked another sad anniversary for children with special needs in B.C. Last year on this date, early intensive behavioural therapy programs were closed in Victoria, Langley, Kamloops and Kelowna.

Specialists with these programs had been working with and assisting the most severely autistic children in our province. These closures followed B.C.’s Children and Family Development Minister Mary Polak’s announcement in October 2009: she would cut more than $3 million for autism services for children under age six. As a result of this decision, Victoria’s Queen Alexandra Centre for Child Health laid off 40 highly trained behavioural interventionists and closed its autism behaviour intervention program. This was a program that made breakthroughs with autistic children, releasing kids from a lifelong sentence of isolation and costly supported living. Intensive behavioural interventionists collaborated with the centre’s occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech language pathologists and other staff to make a successful, long-term experience for autistic children. The program cost about $70,000 for three or four years of intensive treatment. That investment may seem steep. But compare this to the alternative: studies estimate that if left untreated, caring for autistic individuals over the course of their lives costs about $2 million per person. Put another way, treating 28 children to live fuller, happier lives costs the system the same as one child who goes untreated. Minister Polak claimed autistic children would still receive adequate services. But parents say the program closure has been devastating. Parents are facing ruinous debts in trying to provide therapy for their children. Children who had been starting to speak in complete sentences while enrolled in the program have now regressed to being nonverbal. B.C.’s families deserve better. I challenge Minister Polak and her government to explain these cuts.

did some burning and looting of their own. The next day, townsmen sacked a number of halls where students lived, killed more scholars, and even scalped some. The students and instructors fled, not to return to Oxford for months. About 90 people, two-thirds students, were dead. The king, of course, sided with the scholars he needed to keep things running. They were given amnesties and urged to come back. The town,

meanwhile, was punished by having many of its rights and responsibilities (tax collecting, policing, road repair) given to the university. The town was also fined 250 pounds, which was probably enough then to buy and sell almost everyone in Oxford. An annual payment was also made by town to university, every year up to the 1820s! Is there a lesson in this mess? (Aside from “Serve good beer in university pubs.”) Just the usual ones.

When one group is seen to have privileges and rights denied to another group, friction will result. Keep it up and the situation can burst into flame. The best lesson of the Oxford riots may be that this can happen with any groups. A group of sober, studious, robed future clergymen? A quiet English town? Just another powderkeg.

10-lane Port Mann Bridge,” Laird said. “Without them, New Westminster risks being flooded with commuter and truck traffic.” The City of New Westminster supports tolling of a new Pattullo Bridge. “I think the city has gone on record so far as to suggest if a new bridge is constructed, it should be tolled,” said Jim Lowrie, the city’s director of engineering. “We don’t want the Pattullo to be a free alternative to the Port

Mann Bridge.” Lowrie said the tolls would help TransLink develop a sustainable truck route through the city. “The Pattullo Bridge and its connection to the street grid in New Westminster is an issue for us,” Lowrie said. “In order for us to firm up our plans for the North Fraser Perimeter Road, we need to know how the Pattullo Bridge is going to connect to that facility or how the road is going to connect to the bridge. If both connections stay the same,

tying into Royal Avenue, we would like to know what the impacts of that are. If a new bridge is going to be constructed, ideally it should be connected to the North Fraser Perimeter Road. If that does occur and there is a connection to the North

Fraser Perimeter Road the city would also be seeking improvements to that corridor.” TransLink announced in 2008 that it would replace the aging Pattullo with a six-lane bridge, saying it was better value for money

than fixing up the crossing. Transportation Minister Shirley Bond said Wednesday the provincial engineers are “offering their expertise” to help design a bridge that is affordable, safe and will meet the needs of future growth.

“We have to deal with the Pattullo; it’s an aging structure,” she said. “When you’re going to invest potentially $1 billion in a new structure, you have to look at every viable option.” – with files from The Vancouver Sun

least one incident was simply a misunderstanding where a child was worried a man was trying to coax him into a vehicle. After interviewing the driver, it turned out the driver had simply stopping at a crosswalk and waved to the student to let him know it was safe to cross the street. Ward said he understands why there is a growing assumption that all the incidents are related. But he noted that vague descriptions of the man and incidents basically guarantee that people will jump to that conclusion and that the incidents are not necessarily related. “Because of the way they’ve been reported, they’re pretty vague, and that’s just the nature of how children would report things,” he said. “There’s nothing specific to say that this person is responsible for all three incidents.” Sgt. Bruce Carrie said police are continuing to investigate and are stepping up patrols around elementary schools. “We’re all monitoring school zones to see if we can see, at any time, a similarly described vehicle to try to identify the individual involved. We’re actively looking,” he said. In the meantime, Balanuik is encouraging parents to review safety tips with kids including: walking to and from school in groups, always reporting suspicious incidents and people to a trusted adult and immediately leaving any situation that feels dangerous in any way. Carrie said New Westminster parents can now pick up a child safety kit that includes safety information for parents and kids at the police station or the New Westminster Public Library. Anyone who sees a vehicle and occupant matching the description is asked to record the licence plate number and call New Westminster police at 604-525-5411.

Modular classrooms have been designed to meet seismic safety standards and withstand variations in B.C.’s climate.

limitations” as to what it can discuss publicly about property issues, but he hopes the city will continue to make as much information available as possible so people can respond and participate in the process. “I am getting asked by a lot of people, ‘What other routes are you guys looking at?’ We are waiting for TransLink,” he said. “We are not looking at any other routes right now.” The report to be considered by council on Monday states that the proposed mid-February to March 31 timeline to develop an acceptable technical solution to the United Boulevard extension and to engage in full public consultation seems “unrealistic” because that only allows one-and-a-half months to address many complex issues. Matthew Laird, vice-president of New Westminster Environmental Partners, said residents want to see what’s being proposed.

He said TransLink is trying to plan and fund the $140- to $170-million project in a short timeframe. “They should take this United Boulevard extension project off life support,” he said. Laird said the North Fraser Perimeter Road in New Westminster is proving that road capacity building in dense urban centres is not affordable or desirable. “Plan first, then build – the idea of pushing a project forward to meet an arbitrary budgetary timeline makes little fiscal sense during this time of fiscal prudence,” Laird said. “2011 is the year New Westminster is updating its master transportation plan. Let’s have the discussion about how we want to develop a livable, family friendly city before shovels go in the ground or any public dollars are spent on ill-conceived projects.” For more on this story, see Theresa McManus’s Only in New West blog at www. – click on the Opinion tab and follow the link under Blogs.

City expands public wireless Internet


A pilot project launched last July offering free wireless Internet in some public places has been extended and expanded to accommodate more users. The City of New Westminster spent around $100,000 to set up Wi-Fi access at Queen’s Park, the New Westminster Public Library and the uptown business district at Sixth Avenue and Sixth Street. “We’ve doubled up the amount of time you can use,” said Alvin Chok, the city’s chief technology officer. “Before, it was one hour per session, now people can use it for two, and where before only 15 people could use it at a time in any of the locations, now 30 people can. It was often being maxed out before, and we want more people to be able to use it.” Chok said the response to the project has been highly positive, but the decision to continue the project permanently has yet to be finalized and reports will need to be made by city staff to council. Mayor Wayne Wright is a big supporter of public wireless Internet, and he would like New West to be one of the first Canadian cities to provide widespread free hotspots to citizens. “We’re trying to lead the way, quite frankly,” Wright said in an interview with the CBC earlier this week. “We’ve got lots of young people moving into the city, young

families – they’re all technical people, not like myself.” The wireless system requires a four-digit code that can be found at each location the old-fashioned way – posted on nearby walls and bulletin boards. (The codes, which Chok said there is no intention of changing, are 1122 at Queen’s Park, 3388 at the library and 2233 at the uptown business district.) The access isn’t encrypted, so users might want to avoid typing sensitive information or limit themselves to browsing rather than conducting any kind of e-commerce. Chok added that the city is also exploring other potential uses for wireless technology. “The second part of it is to see what kind of wireless applications we could use for municipal operational efficiencies, whether it’s remote access or mobile computing for GIS (geographic information systems) applications, wireless parking meters, wireless security cameras, smart metering systems, things like that.” Chok didn’t want to speculate whether Wi-Fi will become available throughout the whole city. “I know that the mayor says he would like to see it everywhere, but I think we have to see how best to deploy this. We’d need to do cost-benefit analysis, see where the critical mass is, and what streets or corridors would give you the most bang for the buck. I think we’d have to do a lot of planning and studying before considering blanketing the whole city.”

Casino boosts the arts


tarlight Casino has hit the jackpot with the Arts Council of New Westminster. The Arts Council of New Westminster has selected Starlight Casino as its Patron of the Year. In 2010, directors of the Arts Council of New Westminster decided to award a Patron of the Year to a business and/or person who have shown exceptional support to the arts through the arts council’s programs and initiatives. The arts council’s board of directors unanimously decided that the executive and staff of Starlight Casino would be the inaugural recipient of this recognition because their financial and exhibiting support during the past year has created a measurable and positive contribution to the arts council and the arts community as a whole. “Fortunately for us in New Westminster, our best and strongest supporter, Starlight Casino, remains firm in its vision and commitment to the value of the arts and the work of the Arts Council of New Westminster,” said arts council president Rick Carswell in a press release. “Our participation and work with this company is yielding excellent cooperative benefits. For this, and other reasons, I am proud to declare Starlight Casino to be the 2010 Patron of the Year for the arts council. I extend thanks to Starlight’s valuable business commitment and encourage other such participations throughout the city.” Tim Barnett, executive general manager for Starlight Casino, has made financial contributions to the Arts Council of New Westminster through the ‘Found Monies’ program. The arts council states that these contributions have enabled it to withstand severe funding cuts to the arts and to maintain programs ◗Around Town Page 14

Vision for the future: Brian Bonney is the new director of sales for Uniserve, an Internet service provider headquartered in New Westminster that is getting set for major growth.

Reaching for the cloud

Local Internet service provider poised for growth BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER

New Westminster-headquartered Internet service provider Uniserve is hoping to aggressively expand its customer base in the coming years following the appointment of its first director of sales. Brian Bonney, formerly the B.C. director for the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, announced he had taken the position Jan. 26. Bonney said his aim is to immediately hire a sales team to step up competition with bigger companies for business Internet access and branch out into telecommunications services. “We’re going to build a Uniserve that will not only look after Internet access but also telecommunications – phone equipment, phone lines, long distance and everything else that goes along with that,” he said. “The change for Uniserve is to have a visible, active sales force back on the road in the Lower Mainland. I’m going

to hire five account managers with some telecom background, but not necessarily, and get them out there, knocking on doors letting businesses know we’re still a viable force in the industry and we’ve got some great product and we’re out there to compete.” Bonney said the $15-million company grew to its current size and staff level of 45 largely by buying up smaller Internet service providers but never really tried to market itself directly to customers. Uniserve currently has about 1,000 customers in the Lower Mainland and around B.C. Beyond that, Uniserve recently inked a deal with Dell Canada to provide “cloud computing” – a service in which small and medium-sized businesses can get access to high-end business software online for a monthly fee. Bonney said the service can provide cheaper access to the software along with a more convenient way access it from around the world. “It’s huge for small and medium-sized businesses and we’re really excited about that,” he said. Bonney said it was not an easy decision

to leave his lobbying job at the Canadian Federation of Independent Business because he loved taking the needs of small businesses and putting them to politicians. But his old-school love of entrepreneurialism and maybe a pay increase drew him back to the private sector. “I loved CFIB, and I still do love CFIB. My heart will always be there,” he said. “But I’ve been an entrepreneur all my life, so that really excited me. It was less money than I was used to, and it wasn’t as entrepreneurial. This opportunity was ground level. It was building a sales force, and that’s my background – building business. I love doing that,” he said. Commenting on the recent upheaval following a Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission to allow ISPs to begin charging steep penalties for people who go over download limits, Bonney said the timing was wrong and Uniserve has no plans to change from its “all-you-can-eat” Internet products. He added though that exponential growth in appetite for bandwidth does mean ISPs need to build new networks with virtually no return on the dollar. “Where’s the ceiling?” he asked.

It only takes about three minutes to complete, and participants can enter to win one of the fabulous prizes including: a fourth-generation iPod Touch, an iPod Shuffle, two $50 gift cards, or parks and rec passes. The survey is at: teensurvey. Once you have completed the survey online, you can click the e-mail link on the last page to submit your name and contact number for the prize draw to be held Feb. 27. If you prefer to complete a paper copy of the survey, you can do so at the New Westminster Youth Centre or at the New Westminster Public Library. E-mail Liz Hunter at or call 604-527-4677.

Valentine’s treats



reat your valentine to an arty weekend at River Market. The market, at Westminster Quay, is holding a Valentine’s-themed Fall In Love With River Market day on Sunday, Feb. 13. Among the treats, you can pop by the New West Artists exhibition on the second floor, open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The artists’ group, which was profiled in the Feb. 5 Record, has just recently started up in the city, and this is its first exhibition – all works will be priced for under $100. (I plan to pop in this weekend, so I’ll report back.) At 11 a.m., the Vancouver Circus School is offering a couples intro class for $50 per couple, running till 12:30 p.m. To register, call 604-544-5024 or e-mail info@vancouver That’s on the second floor. On the first floor, you

can enjoy the music of the Creole Jazz Band from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. or take part in Valentine’s crafts during the same time period. Businesses at the market are also getting in on the fun –there will be sweetheart tea from the Great Wall Tea Company from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., chocolate demos at Donald’s Market from 3 to 6 p.m. and half-price appies at the Paddlewheeler Pub from 4:30 to 10 p.m. Check out www.river for more.

Enjoy a musical fundraising lunch

If you saw the Feb. 9 Record, you’ll know that New Westminster Secondary School is staging Grease as its musical production this year – it’s on at Massey Theatre Feb. 24, 25 and 26. What you may not know is that it’s no small financial undertaking to put on such a production – in fact, costs for staging a musical can run into tens of thousands. And, with an estimated price tag of $40,000 for Grease, the school can use a little help from its friends.

On Thursday, Feb. 17, Moonrakers pub is hosting a musical luncheon between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. The pub will donate $5 from every meal to the school’s fine arts department, and some cast members will be on hand at 12:15 to perform songs from the play. “Our customers are active in the community, and this is a way for everyone to enjoy a great lunch, a terrific show and contribute to a very worthwhile cause,” said Mike McKee, general manager of Moonrakers, in a press release. You can make a reservation by calling the pub at 604-522-9010. And, if you missed the preview story about Grease, check it out online (, under the Entertainment tab). The students are so enthusiastic, and there’s so much talent in the huge cast, that it’s just bound to be an outstanding show. Do you have an item for Lively City?

FEBRUARY IS NATIONAL PET DENTAL HEALTH MONTH! PETS NEED DENTAL CARE TOO Royal City Humane Society is encouraging all pet owners to have their pet’s teeth examined by a veterinarian this month. Oral disease is the most often diagnosed health problem among dogs and cats over age three, afflicting over 70% of pets. It begins when food particles and bacteria build up, forming plaque and tartar. Left untreated, these bacteria can damage the heart, liver, kidneys, and lungs. Many pets develop painful gums, which makes it hurt to eat. For cats, this can mean losing up to two of their nine lives. In New Westminster, Harley is our plaquefighting puppy and Mitsy our gingivitisfighting feline (see profiles below). They are determined to prevent ‘Dental Disease’ from robbing innocent pets of good oral health. Harley and Mitsy urge you to:

1) Make an appointment for a dental exam. 2) Start a home care dental routine. 3) Monitor your pet’s oral health. Harley says brushing should be fun for you and your pet. Keep sessions short and positive. Do not use human toothpaste as it can cause stomach upset and some contain dangerous levels of fluoride. Praise your pet throughout the process and give yourself a pat on the back too! Mitsy urges you to check your pet today for any symptoms of periodontal disease 1. Red inflamed gums 2. “Stinky breath” 3. Pawing at the mouth or drooling 4. Hard yellow calculi build up on teeth 5. Facial sensitivity 6. Tooth loss or bleeding gums 7. Poor appetite or unwillingness to eat

Do you know someone who has lost a pet? Pets get lost all the time. Have them check out and on Facebook ‘Royal City Humane’. We have had some wonderful successes in reuniting pets and their owners. Without identification, it is a difficult task. The lucky ones rescued by RCHS, who have humans that can’t be located, must wait in hope of adoption. Give your pets a microchip and/or a tattoo and make sure your contact information is kept up to date.

YOUR DONATIONS MAKE THE WORK WE DO POSSIBLE RCHS provides care to hundreds of animals each year. Your support helps give a homeless, injured or abused cat a new and better life. Join us! Contact Royal City Humane Society at 604-524-6447. Become a member at Volunteer. Royal City Humane Society is 100% volunteer operated and welcomes your participation. Adopt or Donate.

Parks are a key part of city’s development OUR PAST



he theme of this year’s Heritage Week, held from February 21 to 27, is A Century of Conservation: Parks and Cultural Landscapes. Part of the celebrations will be the recognition of the 100th anniversary of B.C.’s first provincial park – Strathcona Provincial Park on Vancouver Island. All around the province, communities will be enjoying activities that will extol their own local park and green space and encourage the use and understanding of our park systems. This year’s Heritage Week poster features a painting of the Alexandra Bridge. The 1926 structure is located in Alexandra Bridge Provincial Park just upriver, but far below, the current Alexandra Bridge that travellers cross on their way north up the Cariboo Highway in the Fraser Canyon. The 1926 bridge is the second at that site – the first was built in 1863. Residents of early New Westminster were very

aware of the bridge construction as workers and supplies came upriver past, and sometime through, the city. New Westminster has an excellent collection of parks to enjoy, and they are part of the Heritage Week theme that features parks and cultural landscapes. In the original plans for this city, many areas were set aside to become both active and passive parks, as well as simple open spaces. Areas like Alice Gardens and Louisa Gardens are no longer available, but other early spaces like Albert Crescent (Prospect Park) and Moody Park remain popular spots. The most recent park spaces are in Queensborough, while the last couple of decades have seen open spaces along the waterfront, alterations to Grimston Park, Hume Park and Queen’s Park, and a whole list of expanded or new facilities. That being said, one very special park area deserves a comment or two, and that is Sapperton Landing Park. This park area along the Fraser River below Columbia Street in Sapperton came about as a result of the expanded SkyTrain line – the Millennium Line – through the city. The park area is almost all

new land, fill placed out into the river from the original shoreline that was quite close to the railroad tracks. Prior to the time that it was created this was not a park or even a public area. It was an area with private moorage for fishing boats, a dock and shed connected to the B.C. Penitentiary, and the rail tracks. At one time it also had a small seaplane base and a construction site for float homes, but the overall area was really very narrow. To find out more about the local parks, come out on Wednesday, Feb. 16, at 7:30 p.m., to the New Westminster Historical Society presentation by Archie Miller and Gavin Hainsworth, in recognition of the Heritage Week theme, in the auditorium of the New Westminster Public Library. Anecdotes and photographs will fill out the local parks story.

’Bellies deal with 2013 in mind

New West now holds six top picks in deep year BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR

’Dogs do Hyacks, take second


The New Westminster Salmonbellies got the player they wanted and a whole lot more at the Western LacrosseAssociation junior entry draft Tuesday. The senior A ‘Bellies selected four-year runner Eric Lewthwaite with the last pick of the second round after pulling off the coup of the draft earlier in the round. New Westminster gambled with its first pick of the draft, the third pick of the second round, trading it to the Nanaimo Timbermen along with the 17th and 22nd picks, and a second-rounder in 2012 in exchange for the TMen’s first and third picks in 2013. “It was a weird draft. But honestly, we are over the moon getting Eric Lewthwaite. He can play,” said New Westminster president and general manager Dan Richardson. Lewthwaite played just one game in 2010 before ending the season with a knee injury. His best season was in 2009, when he scored 31 goals and 55 points, finishing behind the likes of top teammates Kevin Crowley, Curtis


He’s No. 1: Minto Cup-winning team captain Matthew Beers, with cup, was chosen first overall by the Burnaby Lakers at the Western Lacrosse Association junior entry draft on Tuesday. New Westminster took Eric Lewthwaite with its first pick in the second round. Dickson and Tyler Digby in team scoring. But the real steal was the trade with Nanaimo, said Richardson. “It sets us up for 2013, which we consider a very deep draft. There are a lot of kids coming out of New Westminster and Coquitlam.” In the first-round, Coquitlam defender Matt Beers was selected first

overall by the Burnaby Lakers. Former Burnaby junior goalie Brodie MacDonald was taken second by the Langley Thunder. Colton Clark, picked up by New Westminster at the junior trade deadline, went to Burnaby with the No. 3 pick. Coquitlam backup keeper Chris Seidel was

the fourth overall choice of Maple Ridge. Robbie Campbell was taken in the No. 5 spot by Coquitlam. Burnaby made Scott Jones its next choice, while Carlton Schuss went to Nanaimo with the final pick of the first round. The senior Salmonbellies drafted Matt Laustrup and Scott Rouse in the third round, while

taking Orangeville native Jay Card with its first pick of the fifth round. New Westminster also drafted goalie Mike Lowe, James Dunbar and Ryan McKay and Scott Sproule off the junior ‘Bellies. “For not having a pick until 14, we did pretty well,” said Richardson, Draft Page 24

Women’s soccer team threatens boycott POSTMEDIA NEWS

Players on the Canadian women’s soccer team are planning to boycott future matches, possibly even World Cup fixtures, unless the Canadian Soccer Association and head coach Carolina Morace can settle their dispute over the future of the program. Morace submitted a letter to the CSA Friday indicating her intention to resign after the World Cup concludes in Germany in July, citing differences in philosophy with the governing body. Team Canada captain Christine Sinclair said the players are backing their coach – the team voted unanimously Monday to walk out on any upcoming games in support of Morace – and are demanding the association try to smooth things over with Morace so she will stay with the team long-term. “It’s come to a point where we can’t go on any further,” Sinclair said in a phone interview Monday. “We 100 per cent sup-

port Carolina. She’s the one that I credit for changing this program around. It’s a shame that CSA will just let her go. We need to stand behind our coach.” Morace has not spoken publicly since news of her intention to resign surfaced last week. Instead she issued a written statement briefly outlining her differences with the CSA. “The Canadian Soccer Association has a strategy to achieve their goals that differs from my strategy,” Morace wrote in the statement released Friday. “I am staying to execute my plan over the next few months because my players have worked hard and deserve to be prepared in the best way possible for the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup Germany.” The players intend to travel to a training camp in Rome later this month and will prepare for the Cyprus Cup in March. However, if a deal is not in place with Morace before their first game March 2, the boycott will commence. Sinclair said the boycott will last “as long

as it needs to” and the team is willing to sit out the World Cup, if it comes to that. The turmoil comes after an unprecedented stretch of great play on the pitch. The women’s team rattled off 11 games without a loss between September 2010 and January 2011, including eight straight wins and the CONCACAF championship. The squad has just three losses in its past 21 games and has high hopes for the upcoming World Cup. “We understand as players this is our best shot at a medal at the World Cup. Any time and games we give up really impacts our chances at the World Cup,” Sinclair said. “But there’s a bigger picture here and a future here that we need to fight for.” At the same time as the planned boycott, the players have hired a lawyer and plan to file suit for arbitration against the association for how the players are paid. The women want to be paid on a per-game basis like the men’s team.

“We’ve tried over the past few years to deal with the CSA very nicely in terms of trying to get a compensation structure in place for us as the men’s team does, without any success. Because of that we’ve hired legal counsel. We’re going to be a little more stern in how we deal with them.” Sinclair said both issues are pressing, but the players will return to the pitch if a deal is in place between the CSA and Morace. They are willing to let the compensation fight work itself out through the courts, if there is no immediate resolution. The player uprising comes just days after the CSA passed a new governance model at a meeting in Ottawa on Saturday.

The Byrne Creek Bulldogs earned a firstround playoff bye following a 67-53 win over the New Westminster Hyacks at Pearson Gym Wednesday. The Bulldogs put together four sound periods, including a pivotal 17-2 second quarter that proved the difference in the game. New Westminster played its best in the opening 10 minutes, leading 2215 after the first quarter. But the second quarter was a complete turnaround. Byrne Creek spread out its scoring and shut out the Hyacks for nearly the entire period. Michael Heer managed the only bucket of the period for the home Hyacks with just 34 seconds remaining in the first half. “We played so well in the first quarter, maybe we thought we could take the second quarter off,” joked Hyacks coach John Doughty. But second place in the BurWest is no joke with No. 1-ranked Burnaby South favoured to win the district banner. “It’s always a stretch in our conference,” said Byrne Creek head coach Wayne Best, who outlined his strategy for success is “play hard, execute and stay with it. That’s how we’ve improved over the last little while.” Grade 11 wing Kennedy George led all scorers with 21 points, including 11 in the opening quarter for Byrne Creek. Junior forward David Majstorovic chipped in with 12 points for the Bulldogs. Masood Wali had a team-high 18 points, including four three-pointers for the Hyacks. Hasreet Sidhu and Jordan Zeer also hit for double figures. Last weekend, the Bulldogs scored their first tournament win, avenging a 30-plus point defeat to Fleetwood Park last month, with a 78-50 victory over the Fraser Valley team at the Sa-Hali tournament final in Kamloops. ◗Hoops Page 24

Big defender chosen to nats New Westminster’s Brett Mydske was added to the roster of the Canadian men’s lacrosse team for the world indoor tournament in Praque, Czech Republic in May. Mydske, who was drafted second overall by the Langley Thunder in last year’s Western Lacrosse Association draft, was named along with Bill Greer, Sandy Chapman, Pat Merrill, Mike Carnegie and current New Westminster Salmonbellie Rory Smith on Feb. 4.

The 22-year-old, 6-4 Mydske was picked despite just entering his second year of pro lacrosse with the Edmonton Rush. “When I got the phone call, I was in shock,” said the Royal City native in Canadian Lacrosse Association press release. “I did not think I’d be getting this opportunity this early in my career at all.” The world indoor championship is scheduled to take place from May 21 to 28.

who had initial doubts when the first round took a few unexpected turns. “We really rely on what our scouts say and we try to stick to it, but, I tell ya, that first round wasn’t the way we thought.” Langley took Salmonbellie junior captain Jarrett Toll with the ninth pick. The Thunder then picked up New West defender Bob Danilkiewicz in round three. Junior B ‘Bellie Andrew Polinghorne was snatched

up by Burnaby in the seventh round. New Westminster ’s wheeling and dealing was not popular with everyone in attendance, said Richardson, who was looking ahead to what he believes will be a deeper draft in 2013. The draft-day deal with Nanaimo gave New Westminster two picks in each of the first, second and third rounds in 2013. “It’s called succession planning,” he said. “The potential of (Tyler) Digby

and (Robert) Church was too good to pass up. “We want to prepare our team for what we want to be. We’ve done well in the league and in the WLA playoffs, but we haven’t gotten to where we want to be.” Langley might have made arguably the most significantdifferencetoitsclub, drafting Toll, Burnaby’s Nick Bilic, Danilkiewicz, Darcy Cummings, Simon Giourmetakis and 6-7 backstopper MacDonald with its top-six picks.

Hoops: NWSS to host quarter-finals ◗ continued from page 23

Senior district playdowns will be hosted at New Westminster Secondary on Feb. 15. Winners advance against South and Byrne Creek in the semifinals hosted at South on Feb. 16. The championship final will take place the following Friday. In the prior junior boys’ game at Pearson, Byrne Creek upset the first-place Hyack juniors 60-58 on a last-second bucket by Wilson Anteros. “It’s a big deal,” said Anteros, who led the Bulldogs with 18 points. “The coach said it was one of the biggest games we

would be playing.” Trailing 58-53 in the final minute of play, the ’Dogs scratched to within a point and then Anteros stole a pass before getting the ball back and banking a close-in shot off the glass with a fade-away jumper with 2.5 seconds left on the clock. The loss did not sit well with the New Westminster coach. “I guarantee no team will ever beat us twice,” said Hyack coach Dwight Stephen. Manvir Gandham led all scorers with 22 points. Junior boys’ playoffs will be hosted at Alpha Secondary Feb. 14, 15 and 17.

Norman passed away with complications a few days after having a stroke. Originally from Orcadia, Saskatchewan, he moved at the age of 11 in 1934, with his family to Vancouver Island. After coming to the mainland, Norman eventually took up work on the waterfront as a longshoreman where he remained until his retirement. Hobbies that he enjoyed over the years including fishing the Fraser River, tending his small acreage in Aldergrove and scrap metal recycling for which he had a passion. A long time North Burnaby resident, he lived in the same house on Francis Street from 1948 Bell & Burnaby until his death. He will be missed by all Funeral Chapel who knew and loved him.

Freedom from Fear in Uncertain Times

As a counsellor and coach I hear a lot about peoples’ fears for the security of their job or business, for their retirement, and generally for their future. I find that the people with the most fear are the people who believe they have the little control over the circumstance of their lives. And while I Gregg Taylor recognize that we may not have ‘control’ over as many life influences as we’d like, we can focus on those things we can most influence. Personal Choice: We cannot control the people around us, let alone the entire economy. What we can control are our own actions, emotions and decisions, choosing to be proactive rather than passive when times get tough. It’s how I choose to respond, and how I choose to act, that matters most. Understanding: Much fear comes from fearing the worst and not understanding the changes that are impacting us. We don’t have to become an economist or a career expert, but you will want to ask questions and learn all you can about your finances, your local economy, your employer’s stability, and your career alternatives and options. Support: We live in a society where independence and self-sufficiency are highly valued. This isn’t helpful in times of change. Don’t isolate yourself in doubts and fears – reach out, ask for help, get advice, be curious, and help others that are having a harder time than you are. Purpose: The people who survive change most successfully are those who are able to hold on to a bigger picture, or higher purpose - one that guides them and motivates them through challenging times. What is your purpose; career satisfaction and advancement, supporting your family, contributing to the world? For help finding the work you love, call Transitions Career & Business Consultants, coordinators of The Transitions Program, a free 3 week career exploration program available to all unemployed people at 604-434-1177 or 604-681-2774.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Relationships are accented, but don’t fall in love or propose this week. (Don’t worry – if such seems imminent, there’s still lots of time.) Wishes come true Sunday – happiness, friends, light romance and popularity paint your future with golden strokes! But retreat this night through Tuesday: you need a short but deep rest: seek quietude, plan, contemplate. You’ll spy the inner workings of love Tuesday. Your energy, charisma and effectiveness surge upward Wednesday/Thursday – strike early Wednesday, in legal, travel, intellectual areas. Chase and conserve money Friday/Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: This is your last week of work – Friday begins a month of fresh breezes, exciting meetings, new horizons and opportunities. (Opportunities are unusually important this winter/ spring – seizing them can change your life.) Until Friday afternoon, complete chores, especially the obligations that “show up” Wednesday/Thursday – if neglected they will weigh you down later, just when you should be rising. Earlier, chase practical and prestige goals Sunday – success accompanies the ambitious! Wishes, optimism and social joys mark Monday/Tuesday. All week, DON’T begin a new love.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Travel, call during an active, friendly Sunday. But this night, settle into home – and there, through Monday/Tuesday, tackle some difficult questions around relationships, marriage and life’s opportunities. (Are there any left for you? Yes, many, but they’re all connected to ambition, career, until late 2012.) Tuesday’s better; a “secret” friend or stranger might help. Romance, creativity, pleasure and beauty whisk you to adventure midweek! (Don’t start a love relationship this week, though. It’s doomed long term.) Plunge into chores Friday/Saturday. Chase fun, friends, all week. Taurus April 20-May 20: The accent lies on ambition, career, dealings with VIPs, bosses and parents. Take a quiet, behind-the-scenes approach. Confidential discussions, private planning, quietly lining up allies, contacting/applying to government or institutions – all these contain a quiet but lucky “change.” Chase money or shop Sunday, but NOT for techie items. Monday (barriers) and Tuesday (success) bring errands, communications, paperwork, details. Midweek accents home, and a choice between ambition and relaxation. Romance calls Friday/ Saturday. All week, avoid over-exertion, physical and intellectual. Gemini May 21-June 20: DON’T fall in love, propose, or chase a new romance this week. You’ve started to achieve success in group and social situations – and this will continue for four months of solid, heart-warming growth. If you’re single, this might well yield a new love. But not this week. You shine Sunday: start new projects, ask favours, show your talents. Your intuition is superb, so just do, rather than over-think. Quit by suppertime. Money, purchases and possessions fill Monday (barriers, waste) and Tuesday (success – buy high-tech). Communicate, travel midweek. Home, rest Friday/Saturday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The romantic theme continues, but DO NOT begin a love affair or new relationship this week. Other themes, creativity, speculation, beauty, pleasure and teaching, are fine. Generally, you are (or your subconscious is) putting on the brakes a bit in all these areas, preparing for a subsequent surge. Sunday’s splendid – intellectual, travel, love and communication projects succeed. Exercise your ambitions Monday (dilemmas of choice) and Tuesday (success via creative effort). Social delights, flirtations, wish fulfillment arrive midweek! Retreat Friday/Saturday: plan the work that looms. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your “hibernation” period continues, so rest deeply – until Friday, when a month of romance, pleasure, speculation, risk and adventure starts! Neither make nor accept any partnership proposals this week (nor persuasive pitches for commitment of any kind). Sunday offers superb financial, investment, research, diagnostic and intimate opportunities. Sit down with a loved one for a deep, exploratory talk. Gentle wisdom enters Monday/Tuesday. Be ambitious mid-week, especially first thing Wednesday morning. (Avoid selfdeception.) Friday/Saturday bring social delights and bright optimism! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: If a new wish or life goal comes to you this week, don’t invest a lot of faith in it; your destiny is very likely going to detour around this one. Sunday’s filled with opportunities (or opposition if you push others too hard) – exciting meetings or openings “synch” with your intuition. It’s a good time to answer “yes” on a whim. Life’s depths and mysteries rise to the surface Monday/Tuesday: DON’T invest, commit, nor seek intimacy Monday – Tuesday, these succeed. Gentle love, understanding, cultural stuff Wednesday/Thursday. Friday begins a month of domestic matters.

Call: 1-866-871-1040

Feb. 13 - Feb. 19 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Continue to seek money, new clients, to buy and sell, until Friday.Your personality has grown more gracious and alluring the past week or so, and this helps you with ambitions this week. You’re slowly changing, and slowly but seriously climbing, carving out a new “position” this decade. Tackle chores Sunday – you accomplish much! Relationships contain opportunity and opposition Monday, but success and good feelings Tuesday. Finances, investigation, intimacy, lifestyle choices are blessed Wednesday, “iffy” Thursday. Wisdom, gentle love come Friday/ Saturday. A busy month begins. Aquarius Jan.20-Feb.18:Yourenergy,effectiveness and charisma continue at a peak...sexual magnetism drips from you too. (Hmm, not sure of that image.) You might attract amorous attention, but DON’T begin a love affair now (nor ever with anyone you first meet this week). Sunday’s romantic, creative, pleasurable and beautiful – you’ll win at games or love! Tackle chores Monday (results uncertain) and Tuesday (good results). Relationships, opportunities, exciting meetings fill Wednesday (lucky morning!) and Thursday (be diplomatic, not evasive). Friday’s financial, and begins a month of money efforts. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Continue to lie low, rest, contemplate and plan. Refresh your spirit. Friday begins a month of fresh energy, rising charisma and effectiveness – but rest until then. Sunday’s splendid at home or in nature – a great day to enhance your security, deal with family members, garden, etc. Romance, creativity and beauty touch you lightly Monday/Tuesday, but the best that comes from this is friendship. It’s not quite time, Pisces. Tackle chores and health concerns Wednesday/Thursday. Wednesday morning’s efforts can open a lucky career door. Exciting meetings, opportunities occur Friday/Saturday. • Reading: 416-686-5014
