Report details options BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER

The future of Hume Park Elementary may have an entirely different look after the Friday release of superintendent John Woudzia’s report. The district is currently undergoing a 45-day consultation process because the district is trying to figure out what to do with Hume Park, the small Sapperton area school with only 26 students currently, and possibly only 23 by this September. In Woudzia’s 20-page report, he outlined different scenarios for what programs or classes could be housed at Hume Park. Those options include keeping the status quo, consolidating Hume Park with Richard McBride, or having the home learners’ program, alternate ◗Hume Page 5

‘It was quite a surprise’ BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

A New Westminster native whose been known to help out with sports groups, community organizations and residents’ groups in the Royal City has been recognized as Citizen of the Year. Bill Radbourne’s many community contributions were acknowledged when he was named New Westminster’s Citizen of the Year. He accepted the award when the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce held its Citizen of the Year/Bernie Legge Cultural Awards dinner on Wednesday night at the Inn at the Quay. “It was quite a surprise,” he said. “You start listening to the bios of the other people - they are pretty dedicated.” As he scans the names of past recipients on the Citizen of the Year plaque, Radbourne said he’s honoured to be in their company. Born and raised in Sapperton, Radbourne attended Richard McBride Elementary, Vincent Massey Junior High and Lester Pearson High School. Even as a teenager, he was recognized for his community contributions, when he received a service award at school for his volunteer efforts, which included keeping score

for the school’s hockey team and managing the band. After graduating from high school, Radbourne landed a job with the City of New Westminster in the board of works department. Although he initially put in sidewalks in the Massey Heights neighbourhood, he then landed a job working on the garbage trucks. “I figured if got on the trucks, I could get on with the fire department,” he said. “I guess it worked.” Radbourne eventually got a job as a firefighter with the New Westminster Fire Department, where he worked for more than 30 years. He retired as an assistant chief in 2003. During his tenure at the fire department, Radbourne initiated the department’s first Boot Drive and pub crawl for Muscular Dystrophy. He was sure the department could donate more than $100 annually to the cause. “We went from $100 to $4,000 in that first year,” he said. “We won an award.” Although he served the community through his work with the fire department, Radbourne has contributed to the community in numerous ways throughout his life. Those contributions include

refereeing minor lacrosse, coaching minor football, helping start up the Royal City Curling Club, and volunteering for the Seniors Games and New Westminster’s 150th Celebration. He’s also a longtime member of Sapperton Fish and Game Club. “If somebody needs help, you just do it,” he said. Radbourne was honoured when he was invited in 1998 to be a member of the Ancient and Honorable Hyack Anvil Battery. A founding member of the Massey Victory Heights Residents’ Association, Radbourne served as its president for three year and as its vice president for an additional three years and is currently the its immediate past president. Radbourne’s wife of 16 years, Lynn, has been known to recruit him to assist with some of her many community endeavours. (She’s a past recipient of the Bernie Legge Cultural Award.) Radbourne jokes that when people see the couple’s phone number, they know they’re calling to ask them to volunteer on some sort of community endeavour. “People like to volunteer. If you can give them a good job, they like to do it,” he said. “It’s

Candidates spar over crime and justice BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

New Westminster-Coquitlam Conservative candidate Diana Dilworth is questioning her NDP rival’s stance on crime. As the federal election campaign heads into its final weekend, Dilworth is asking why NDP candidate Fin Donnelly and the NDP have voted against “every crime bill” yet say they’re concerned about crime. She’s calling on Donnelly to explain why he didn’t support crime legislation in the House of Commons. “As the riding breathes a sigh of relief that Allan Schoenborn will not be released into our community, I call on Fin Donnelly to assure the community that the NDP will join me and commit to supporting legislation that will put victims first and prevent this situation from happening again,” she said in a press release. “Through the last five years, the NDP have consistently voted

against every crime bill that the Conservative government put forward.” (Schoenborn, a Merritt resident, killed his three children in 2008 and was charged with three counts of first-degree murder. A judge deemed he was not criminally responsible because of a men- Fin Donnelly, tal disorder and he is NDP currently housed at Colony Farms forensic psychiatric hospital in Port Coquitlam.) Dilworth said the residents of New Westminster-Coquitlam want changes to the Criminal Code to ensure that violent offenders like Schoenborn don’t have the opportunity to rejoin the community. “Fin Donnelly attended a rally last Wednesday at Coquitlam city hall in support of (Schoenborn’s ex-wife) Darcie

Clarke. He stood with other politicians who committed to working together to make any necessary changes,” Dilworth said. “At the Burquitlam Community Association debate, Mr. Donnelly acknowledged that violent offenders, like these that comDiana Dilworth, mit heinous crimes Conservative against children, need to be addressed. Fin Donnelly has never supported crime legislation. Do you think he will do it now?” Donnelly’s campaign office stated that he has introduced two crime bills since being elected in November 2009 and has supported crime legislation that has come before the House of Commons during his time in Ottawa. This includes bills related to sentencing for fraud, limiting pardons

for serious crimes, protecting Canadians by ending sentence discounts for multiple murders act, and amending the Controlled Drugs and Substance Act (methamphetamine and ecstasy.) Donnelly supported crime legislation related to review of RCMP civilian complaints and to amend the Corrections and Conditional Release Act regarding ending early release for criminals, but both of these bills died on the order paper when parliament was dissolved. Dilworth said the Conservative government will introduce an omnibus crime bill within its first 100 days of government and she will be proud to support the bill. (An omnibus bill bundles several items together into one bill.) Donnelly said it’s “disingenuous” for Dilworth to state that he and he NDP have not supported crime bills. While he has supported crime bills, Donnelly said he believes they have to be examined ◗Crime Page 9

program, early French immersion or Montessori classes at Hume Park. “We want to lay out the advantages and disadvantages of each of these scenarios,” said Woudzia. “This report is a starting point, an entry point for dialogue. “This is not intended to be a definitive final solution,” he told The Record on Friday afternoon. “We hope that people view it as a series of ideas and possible solutions.” Woudzia reiterated that the report he worked on for many days is not focused on the closure of Hume Park Elementary. “Hume Park is a very valuable resource for the school district,” he said. “We’re looking at ways to optimize the value of that asset. My report looks at the various options we have.” All students at Hume Park were given a copy of Woudzia’s report to take home to their parents at the end of school Friday. In addition, Richard McBride students were given a letter to take home telling them that the report would be available online and people who want paper copies can pick them up at McBride next week. Woudzia said the public will have at least two opportunities to make their thoughts known. “We have two community meetings scheduled and this is valuable information for people to make an informed opinion,” said Woudzia. The community meetings Woudzia is referring to are on Wednesday, May 4 at 7 p.m. at the Sapperton Pensioners’ Hall and on May 11 at 7 p.m. at Richmond McBride Elementary. According to a letter sent to Hume Park parents dated April 21, the meetings “will focus on potential consolidation” considerations related to the two schools. In addition, the school board will continue gathering information in readiness for a potential final decision at its June 7 regular board meeting at New Westminster city hall. School trustees James Janzen and Casey Cook both said that while the district is in a 45-day consultation period, trustees are in a listening mode and not making any conclusions or comments until all the feedback is returned from various stakeholder groups.

Ignore our advice – trust your own thinking

This is not an editorial exhorting you Some pundits suggested that having an “eastern” paper throw its editorial to get out and vote. We’ve done that. It is also not an editorial telling support behind a candidate might just get western voters’ backs up and actually you who to vote for. We don’t believe in endorsements – although for many hurt Harper.

This past week the Globe and Mail endorsed editors believe they are blessed with Stephen Harper. special intelligence or insight into who,


or what policies, are best for Canada? Do readers really need a newspaper to tell them who to vote for? And after a newspaper endorses a candidate and/ or party, what responsibility does that newspaper have in continuing coverage of their “endorsed” candidate? Newspapers and journalists are facing increasing questions about their credibility and bias. It seems to us that a newspaper endorsing a candidate only amplifies those concerns. Yes, newspapers are not clinical, scientific devices. They are staffed by

human beings who, by our very natures, have biases. We try not to have those biases impact our decisions. But it would be false to suggest that no matter how hard we try our decisions aren’t influenced – albeit as little as possible – by our own experiences. We’re not going to tell you who to vote for, but we will say that it is almost always better to trust one’s own thinking than follow someone else’s. At least then you can only blame yourself if you’ve picked the wrong politician.

Harper leading Canada astray Dear Editor:

What direction and where is the Harper government leading us? In one of President Eisenhower’s last speeches as president, he warned of the growing power of the military-industrial complex. That was over 50 years ago. Canada has resisted being sucked into this bottomless pit – until the Harper government. What business does Canada have in Iraq, Afghanistan and now Libya? Where next? What has been the cost of this foolishness? We know it has cost billions, but under the super secret Harper government we don’t know the full cost. The Harper government proposes to spend over $20 billion on F-35 stealth fighters plus countless billions on other militaria. Under Harper, we have become a tool of the U.S.A., turning Canada from a peace-loving nation into a war nation. The U.S.A., England, France, Germany and Russia are arms

manufacturing nations, producing, selling and reading, willing and able to foment and jump into any situation. What is Canada doing in this company? Instead of our comparably small country squandering billions on foreign military equipment, we could invest in a disaster army equipped to handle any natural disaster in the world. Then I would be proud of Canada’s international role. I would also add that I understand a new health agreement between the federal government and the provinces will be negotiated in 2014. Do you trust the Harper government to implement a new deal? Bill Barton, New Westminster

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Conservatives deserve vote ◗ continued from page 6

an end to taxpayers being forced to foot the bill for political parties, and hopefully, an end to the draconian long gun registry. Even if the Conservatives accomplish none of the aforementioned things, the fact they have already purchased new military helicopters for our ground forces, and are planning to purchase the stealth F35 fighter bombers is in and of itself reason enough for me to vote Conservative in this election. If we send brave young men and women into battle they deserve to be provided with the very best in technology and firepower that we can afford to give them. Everything else pales in comparison. Gary Tupper, New Westminster

You may be voting for Bloc Dear Editor:

Are coalitions good or bad? I say, it all depends on which parties are involved. Would you vote for the NDP or the Liberals if you knew that the only way they could form a government would be to include the Bloc Québécois in a coalition? The election is not likely to result in much change in the standings in Parliament. All four parties will keep roughly the same share of seats as they did before the election. If that turns out to be true, the parties currently in opposition – the NDP, the Liberals and the Bloc – will attempt to govern by forming a coalition. Without the cooperation of the Bloc, the NDP and Liberals cannot command a majority in Parliament. What do you think the Bloc will want in return for helping an NDP-Liberal coalition? The Bloc has demonstrated that it only cares for one province. It doesn’t take

much imagination to predict that the Bloc would hold any Liberal-NDP coalition hostage to their demands. Thus, a vote for the NDP is really a vote for the Bloc Québécois. Gary Mauser, by email

Criticism not ‘mudslinging’ Dear Editor:

Re: Debate, not mudslinging, Letters to the editor, The Record, April 20. In his April 20 tirade against my April 13 letter, Mike Redmond clearly believes I should not express my poor opinion of Stephen Harper because Mr. Redmond believes Mr. Harper has done a good job. OK. But Mr. Redmond then accuses me of criticizing Mr. Harper over specific corporate tax rates – which I did not do. I criticized Mr. Harper for pushing a hazy deal to spend $30 billion or more on new warplanes instead of issues favoured by a majority of Canadians, whom Mr. Harper is supposed to represent. I criticized Mr. Harper for earning Canada the “Fossil Award” for his hampering of world efforts to reduce greenhouse gases. I criticized Mr. Harper for policies that threaten to trash our environment, such as opposing legislation to limit oil tankers along B.C.’s fragile coastline. Apparently lacking any reasoned arguments opposing my criticism, Mr. Redmond resorts to the old political ploy of attacking the messenger, accusing me of “over-the-top mudslinging,” plus a sprinkling of ranting and fulminating. I should think anyone supporting Mr. Harper would assiduously avoid bringing up the subject of mudslinging, which is the basis of the vile attack ads so generously disgorged by the Harper election campaign.

he’s being challenged by Forseth, a former Conservative member of Parliament for New WestminsterCoquitlam. “It is interesting to see the media start to pay attention to Jack Layton’s far-fetched promises, now that he is getting better poll results in Quebec,” Forseth wrote in an email to The Record. “The NDP platform either doesn’t add up, or they propose to do things that they have no jurisdiction to do.” Forseth said the NDP has no ability to do anything about hiring 1,200 doctors, using Parliament to end the HST in British Columbia or putting a low universal interest cap on credit cards. “Any reasonable person would recoil if they seriously analyzed the many unrealistic and disingenuous promises,” he said. “In contrast, the Conservative promises have been modest, with the main theme to wisely manage the economy to ensure that the revenues are there to sustain and protect health-care and the broad social safety net.” As a former financial advisor and a small business operator, Julian said the government needs to “carefully steward the public purse and put resources into essential services” such

as poverty, student debit and health care, rather than billions into fighter jets and $1 billion for a G8 summit in Ontario. “As a financial administrator, I look at the record of the Harper government – I think the extent to which they have wasted taxpayer money is unprecedented,” Julian said. Forseth will spend his final weekend on the campaign trail door knocking, while Julian will do some door knocking, attend some small events and host a visit to the riding by NDP leader Jack Layton on Saturday. “Jack Layton has certainly captured the public imagination, a good chunk of the public,” Julian said. “The numbers for the NDP continue to climb.” Julian said he’s encountering few undecided voters as Election Day nears. While some had suggested Canadians weren’t thrilled with the prospect of having another federal election, Julian believes there’s a tremendous amount of interest in the election. “People are very hot on the idea of an election. They can actually see the possibility for real change,” he said. “Conservatives keep putting that message out. … Everyone else believes this is a very important moment in Canadian history.”

Helps, the Green party candidate in New Westminster-Coquitlam, will be focusing here efforts on making the “first past the post” voting system work to the Green’s advantage. Although the Green Party of Canada received almost one million votes in the 2008 federal election, she said it has rarely been concentrated in specific ridings to such a degree that its supporters have been able to win that riding by a majority. “Given this disadvantage, my focus in these final days of the election will be on supporting two Green campaigns in federal ridings here in British Columbia to help get out the vote in each,” she said in an email to The Record. “Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party of Canada and the candidate in Saanich and the Gulf Islands, is currently in the lead. With the support of Green volunteers cross south Vancouver Island, we can get the vote out and get Elizabeth elected. As well, Green Party of Canada deputy leader Adriane Carr, a co-founder in 1983 of the North American Green Party Movement, also stands an excellent chance of winning her riding of Vancouver City Centre, where she is currently in second place and where support for the Liberal incumbent is collapsing. I would like to ask Green supporters in New Westminster to throw their full support behind Adriane’s campaign this weekend.”

on their merits rather than as omnibus bills. Donnelly pointed out that he has personally introduced two crimerelated private members bills in the House of Commons that relate to child safety and child luring. “We are also focusing on prevention, preventing crime,” he said. The Record spoke to Donnelly about the issue following an all-candidates meeting Thursday morning at New Westminster Secondary School. Overhearing the interview, BurnabyNew Westminster NDP candidate Peter Julian voiced his opinion. “They are hysterical on criminal justice issues,” he said

about Conservatives. Julian said Conservatives cut crime prevention funding, even though it’s been shown that each $1 invested in crime prevention saves $6 in policing and other costs. Donnelly said Darcie Clarke’s family contacted his constituency office and he felt it was important to attend last week’s rally in Port Coquitlam. He also presented a copy of a letter on the Schoenborn matter that he had sent to the attorney general. “I listened, I took action,” he said. “I responded to that particular issue in our community.” Donnelly said he attended the rally because he felt strongly about the issue. He said it’s “a bit disin-

genuous” for Dilworth to criticize his presence at the rally when he’s been in contact with her family and when she didn’t attend herself. Dilworth said there were a number of events taking place that day, including a transportation forum and door knocking, and she was confident the Conservative party was well-represented by Conservative MP James Moore and volunteers from her campaign. Asked about her press release, she said it was meant to highlight the “hypocrisy” in Donnelly’s comments about being against crime and his lack of support bills put forward in the House of Commons.

Church mourns loss of key member in Hospitality Project BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

The Shiloh-Sixth Avenue United Church congregation and the Hospitality Project are mourning the death of a key member of their community. Basil Fitze, a volunteer with the Hospitality Project that operates out of the church, passed away April 25 from complications occurring after undergoing surgery. He was 50. “People are pretty broken up,” said Kimiko Karpoff, interim program coordinator at the Hospitality Project. “He was one of our key volunteers here. He greeted people at the door, helped them find their seat. It’s a huge loss for this congregation. He was a very active member of the congregation and also for the Hospitality Project.” Family members told Karpoff that Fitze

loved volunteering with the Hospitality Project and his face would light up when he talked about his work there. Fitze was a familiar face at the Hospitality Project on days when the food bank is open, as that’s when people gather in the church to visit with friends and access goods and resources while waiting to get into the food bank. A celebration of Fitze’s life is taking place on Wednesday, May 4 at 2 p.m. at Shiloh-Sixth Avenue United Church at 1111 Sixth Ave. Fitze was featured on the front page of the March 12, 2011 issue of The Record. Having been in a power chair for about a year because of a variety of health issues, he had voiced concerns about the condition of some of the city’s sidewalks and the need for more curb cuts that allow people with mobility challenges to walk or wheel from the sidewalk onto the roadway.

In fact, as the president-elect of the Hyack Festival Association’s board of directors, he can look forward to a busy year to come. Radbourne is a longtime volunteer with the Hyack Festival Association and received its Volunteer of the Year Award in 1999. His time with Hyack has included a wide range of activities, including chaperoning New Westminster ambassadors on out-oftown trips and working on the Hyack Easter Antique Car Parade route.

Harsco Canada Ltd. was fined $12,238.65 and a numbered company registered in Surrey was fined $83,570.62 for a 2006 incident in which a worker was killed at a construction site when a temporary framework for a concrete pour collapsed causing several sheets of plywood that had been stacked on top of it to fall on the worker WorkSafe B.C. levied 15 penalties against Burnaby companies in 2010, according to its annual Enforcement Report. The most severe penalty imposed on a Burnaby company last year was $49,824.62 against Canada Scaffold Supply Co. Ltd. after a worker suffered serious injuries after falling four metres when a platform on the scaffold he was

standing on gave way. Al Johnson, WorkSafe B.C. regional director, said while the injury and death rate for workers is on the decline, it is still unacceptably high and deaths from occupational diseases continue to rise. “We have three workers that are killed in this province every week and when you put it into that perspective, that’s unbelievable. We really need to get the general public to rally around that,” he said. “One fatality is one fatality too many as far as we’re concerned.” To combat this, Johnson said employers, employees and the public need to develop a “culture of safety” in which safety is ingrained into every aspect of work and is given the same priority as profit and productivity “Easier said than done,” Johnson noted. – With files from Janaya Fuller-Evans Follow Brent Richter on twitter,

New Westminster woman in Miss World pageant and fundraiser

Remarkably modest for a young woman competing in a beauty pageant, New Westminster’s Andrea Glisic is giving it her all to be crowned Miss World Canada. Glisic, a first-time pageant contestant, isn’t doing it for pride or recognition. Instead, she made a New Year’s resolution that 2011 would see her try something new and stumbled upon an ad for the pageant online. “I was just on Facebook, and there was an ad up. It said ‘Miss World Canada,’ so I clicked on it because I wanted to browse through and see who the queen was, and I showed it to my mom, and she said, ‘You should do this. This looks like fun,’” Glisic said. Glisic said what clinched it was the fact the Miss World Canada is partnered with Variety – The Children’s Charity. Glisic is in her third year of studies in youth and child care at Douglas College, and she works in an after-school daycare in New Westminster. “I just love being around kids. I think they’re so much more fun than grown up people,” she said. Last year the pageant and its contestants raised more than $100,000 for Variety. Glisic, 22, said she was also attracted to the pageant by the way contestants are judged: 40 per cent of the mark is based on interviews before the gala, 40 per cent is based on evening gown presentation, 10 per cent based on professionalism and 10 per cent based on how much money contestants can raise for Variety. “It’s not typical in that they’re not just looking at outer beauty. They’re looking at inner beauty as well. They’re doing charity work for a good cause, which makes sense for me because I’m in child and youth care,” Glisic said. If she wins the pageant, scheduled for May 19 at the River Rock Casino in Richmond, Glisic will go on to compete for Canada in the Miss World Pageant in Brazil. As for her own fundraising, Glisic has raised about $700 so far after hosting a club night at Mirage nightclub in Surrey and she plans to hold a car wash and yard sale in the coming weeks. Her goal is $1,500. “The rest,” she said, “is from the

The Group of Five & Friends are celebrating spring to raise funds for equipment at Royal Columbian Hospital. The group’s Spring Thyme fundraising luncheon and garden sale takes place on Friday, May 6 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Old Bavaria Haus restaurant at 233 Sixth St. Tickets are $30 and include a threecourse spring luncheon featuring soup, quiche, fresh strawberry Bavarian cream dessert and coffee. “One hundred per cent of the proceeds are going to buy equipment for the hospital,” said Shirley Piper, a member of the Group of Five. “Our overhead is stamps and insurance.” In addition to the luncheon, the Spring Thyme fundraiser features a garden sale – just in time for Mother’s Day. “We have a lot of absolutely beautiful herb buckets. We have some bedding plants. We have containers with different flowers,” Piper said. “We are going to have a few hanging baskets.” Gift baskets in burlap bags, a crystal ice bucket filled with a pot of fresh flowers, milk glass vases with gerbera daisies, and olive oils infused with thyme, rosemary and more are also for sale. Lanterns for tealights and birdhouses are also among the items for sale. “We are going to make it very easy. There is $5, $10, $15 and $20 tables,” Piper said. During the luncheon, toonie tickets will be sold and draws will be held every half hour. “We have got some very nice draw gifts,” said Piper, offering an example. “A big centerpiece that has been donated. It looks like a little red wagon. It is going to be filled with the most amazing things.” Since 2004, the Group of Five & Friends has held a variety of fundraisers to buy equipment for Royal Columbian Hospital. “We would like to say thank you to all the citizens in New Westminster who have supported us from the very beginning,” said Gerda Suess, one of the group’s founders. The women involved in the group – Piper, Suess, Mary Lou Chesman, Alana McIntyre, Marion Osterman and Helen Bodner – consult with hospital staff to determine what needs to be purchased and then hold a variety of fundraisers to buy the needed items. Proceeds from the Spring Thyme fundraising luncheon and garden sale will allow the group to buy hospital tools such as saws, drills and hammers for use in operating rooms at Royal Columbian Hospital. The hammers range in price from $300 to $9,000. The Group of Five’s most recent purchase for Royal Columbian Hospital was bone foam, which is used to position patients when they’re undergoing surgery. “You cannot believe how much easier this piece of foam has made things in the operating room,” Piper said. “These piece of foam, it is patient comfort, but it is also accessibility for the surgeons. The Group of Five & Friends is planning two other fundraisers for 2011 – a garage sale in June and a Christmas homes tour in December. “We can issue tax receipts,” Suess said. “We are a society recognized by the federal government.”

Treasure hunting at annual Royal City sales AROUND TOWN



he Royal City will have the chance to find some new treasures at two neighbourhood yard sales taking place next weekend. The 16th annual Queen’s Park garage sale will take place on Saturday, May 7 and will raise funds in support of Canuck Place. Frank Wright of RE/MAX Advantage launched the neighbourhood yard sale, but his RE/MAX Realtor Dave Vallee has agreed to take it on this year. “Residents and families of New Westminster and surrounding communities come out garage “sale-ing” while walking through the beautiful heritage home neighbourhood and sunshine (it has never rained in the previous years of the sale), checking out bargains, enjoying lemonade and popcorn stands, entertainment and much more – all in support of organizations,” said an email from Deb Wardle at Team Dave Vallee. The Massey Victory Heights Residents’ Association is also holding its annual garage sale on Saturday, May 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Details about the garage sale, sponsored by Derrick Thornhill of Park Georgia Realty, are found on the association’s website at www.masseyvictory

Go-go sunflowers

The Royal City Gogos will be raising funds for Canuck Place, Monarch

House and the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmother to Grandmother Campaign through sunflower sales at the Queen’s Park garage sale. The Gogos will be selling sunflower seedlings for $2.50 each, as well as perennials, their signature handicrafts and books. The Gogos will also be selling dwarf sunflower plants in bloom for $6 and pots of blooming gerbera daisies for $4. You’ll find the Royal City Gogos at 307 Queens Ave. from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., where they will be raising funds for their Turn to the Sun: Growing Hope for Africa fundraiser. For advance sales of sunflowers, email tmbellamy@

Hanging baskets

The Kiwanis Club of New Westminster is doing its best to help the community and help residents beautify their homes. The club is holding its annual sale of hanging baskets at Royal Columbian Hospital on Wednesday, May 4, Thursday, May 5 and Friday, May 6. “This is such a beautiful sight to see and smell,” said Kiwanis member Marj Ashdown. “Four-hundred beautiful baskets each day, in the emergency entrance.” The baskets are $20 each. Proceeds go to the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation and the Kiwanis Moody Park Pool fund.

Black in cabinet

stepped down as the NDP leader, Black was chosen to serve as the party’s interim leader. Adrian Dix was elected NDP leader last weekend and named his shadow cabinet on Tuesday. According to a press release, Black will serve as assistant deputy speaker (designate) in the NDP Official Opposition’s shadow cabinet. Her new role means she will be filing in on some of the Speaker’s duties, including sitting in for the speaker when he and

the deputy speaker are unavailable, and chairing committee meetings.

Anderson honour

The late Edna Anderson was recently honoured at the B.C. Community Achievement Awards at Government House in Victoria. Edna’s close family friend, Mary De Paoli, received the award from Deputy Premier Kevin Falcon and Lt.-Gov. Steven Point. The longtime New Westminster resident

passed away Feb. 23 at the age of 92. “Edna was known as the Queen of Queensborough for her remarkable contributions during the 90-plus years she lived in her New Westminster neighbourhood. As a volunteer, her service began with helping new Canadians to integrate into their new home. She played violin with the New Westminster Symphony, served as a choir leader, built a collection of more than 500 historical slides depicting

Queensborough life and authored seven books. She was also instrumental in establishing the local community centre and the historical mural millennium project,” said a citation read at the April 20 ceremony. “She was named New Westminster’s poet laureate emeritus and Citizen of the Year. Edna has left an inspirational legacy to her community.” The B.C. Community Achievement Awards are presented by the B.C. Achievement Foundation, established in 2003.

Moms are tops as role models


The phone survey was conducted by StrategyOne on behalf of Dove, and gathered opinions from 1,200 girls in six countries.

new survey has found that mothers are the top female role models in the lives of six in 10 Canadian girls. Furthermore, most of these young people, aged 10 to 17, were unlikely to identify other types of women they hoped to emulate, be they pop stars or others, suggesting that the weight on a mom’s shoulders is that of her daughter’s entire world. “It’s useful reinforcement for women to know they have this kind of power and influence,” said Shari Graydon, a Canadian media watchdog. “I suspect most mothers — who in their day to day parenting are throwing up their hands at the kind of influence the media has — probably don’t appreciate how much their daughters look up to them.”

After mothers, the most-cited role model by the Canadian contingent was “my friend,” at 13 per cent, followed closely by “my sister,” at 12 per cent. Seven per cent named someone else within their extended family as a female role model, with four per cent identifying their grandmother. A spokeswoman for Dove said the rate at which public figures were cited by Canadian girls was negligible. “It may simply be that these girls are smart enough not to say, ‘I want to be the next Britney Spears,’” suggested Graydon. “But the global concern

Pop stars and public figures scarcely get a mention from six of 10 Canadian girls

is that strong female role models — whether athletes, musicians, business leaders or politicians — still have, regrettably, much lower profiles than their male counterparts.” To illustrate, Graydon pointed to an older study in which young boys had no trouble rattling off role models of every stripe, but girls of the same age had to be pressed. Nadine Silverthorne has a young daughter, and was heartened although surprised by the new survey findings. “I did wonder if the girls were saying that just to be polite,” said Silverthorne. “But obviously a mother’s influence is huge.”

Silverthorne, editor of SweetMama at, suggested that youth are unconsciously shaped by celebrities, but consciously guided by their mothers.

els,” Silverthorne said. “What this study made me think is, ‘Wow, I’m having a huge impact on who my daughter will eventually be, and I need to be really careful of that.’”

In fact, a previous survey found moms were three times more influential than media in terms of shaping the way girls feel about themselves and about what it means to be beautiful.

The findings showed that musicians and actresses carry significantly more influence with girls in other countries. But mothers were still universally named as the top female role model: 54 per cent worldwide versus 59 per cent in Canada. – Misty Harris

MOTHER’S DAY of gratitude can be an extremely powerful force,” says Dino Caporiccio at Storck Canada. “Experts tell us that any gesture of appreciation triggers energy in a positive headspace.” Here are a few tips to make your heartfelt gesture a success every time: • Remind yourself about the most outstanding quality in the person receiving your thanks. • Think about the nicest thing anyone ever said to you — and see if something similar fits.

Royal Tandoori


• Tell the person that their act of kindness went far beyond expectations and how good it made you feel. • If you fear spoken words will fail you, say it with a small but meaningful gift. Some of the more popular options are flowerpots, lucky charms, personalized keepsakes and quality chocolate like the appropriate, merci. • Keep it light and use humour. Remember that the object of your gratitude has probably been in your shoes.

If you ask any mom …

she will tell you that not a day goes by that she isn’t thinking about or worrying about her children. Therefore, Mother’s Day is a time to show your mom how much you appreciate all the time, worry and love she has put into raising you. Give her a gift that is a constant reminder of your love for her. • Make the traditional unique: While picture frames and greeting cards are thoughtful, make them all the more unique by purchasing ones that allow you to leave a message with a voice recording on it. Whenever your mom reads the card or looks at the picture in the frame she can hear your sweet voice accompanying it every time.

For Mom…

Discovery Centre hosts journey to the past Come to the Fraser River Discovery Centre on Thursday, May 12 from 7 to 8:30 p.m., and enjoy a lively talk by local historian and expert storyteller Archie Miller of A Sense of History Research Services. It has been said many times that Miller brings the past to life and life to the past. In this brand new program, Miller will combine his talents as a historian, storyteller and photographer to tell more of the history and the heritage of the Fraser River. Archival images, accompanied by Miller’s own rarely seen photographs and entertaining comments and anecdotes, will take the audience back to an earlier age on the river and link the present to years gone by. Over the years, Miller has become known for his unique historical flavour and has always been closely connected to the history of the Fraser and its stories.

His walking and cemetery tours are always well attended, and his talks, lectures and slide programs attract large audiences. Miller also writes for the Our Past historical column that runs in the Royal City Record. Admission is by donation, with the doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and light refreshments being served. Seating is limited, and, due to Miller’s popularity, pre-registration is recommended. Call the Discovery Centre at 604-521-8401 to reserve your seat. The Fraser River Discovery Centre is an interpretive centre connecting communities in discovery and celebration of the living, working Fraser River. Located at 788 Quayside Dr., the Discovery Centre is open Wednesday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is by donation for the exhibit galleries.

The gift of life is one worth sharing HEALTHWISE



teach my kids to dream and work for the future but remind them that their journeys through life will not always go as planned. They will meet roadblocks in the form of unexpected challenges and detours that, at first, may bring disappointment. Soon after graduation, I chose to practise in my own hometown because I expected to look after my parents into old age.

In life, we won’t get everything we expect and ask for. Often, we get what we don’t deserve – both good and bad. Spring is a bittersweet time for my family since my mom died unexpectedly just after Easter in 2003. Before that, I expected both of them to see my children grow up. My mom would have loved to see my daughter dance, my younger son play bass and my oldest son football. She would have taught them much about patience, love and generosity. Life is a gift, but it’s like a gift from a best friend or a wise parent who knows you better than you know yourself and knows what you need.

It is like a carefully wrapped present. You have to open it with curious expectations and a sense of adventure. It won’t be what it appears to be. It won’t be what you expect. You may find tickets in a jewelry box or a bracelet in a shoebox. For sure, you’ll be surprised. When you finally open it and it’s not what you think, at first you might be disappointed, but ultimately it will be of great value, just what you need to grow and to discover greater happiness, and something to be treasured. Too often we don’t recognize or appreciate the gifts in our lives. It’s as if you received a gift card to the spa, tickets to a great

show or a certificate for music lessons and leave it in a box on the shelf, forgotten and unused: potential experiences, lessons and opportunities for happiness never realized and forever lost. I believe the gifts we are given are only given to us in trust. We can’t hold onto them forever, because none of us will live forever. Enjoy the gift of your life. See the relationships of the past as gifts. What were you lucky to have and to enjoy? What blessings can you count? What do you have today that you didn’t really ask for but you can enjoy at this moment? Each morning, you may have expectations

about what the day will bring, but be open to the surprises: the unexpected challenges and detours. Expect your journey through each day not to be a straight line. Look at the new opportunities for adventure, learning and happiness that open up at each turn. When you receive those gifts, take them out of the box and share. The best way to show your appreciation for life’s special gifts is to use them right away, and the most gracious thing to do in life is to give forward. On Saturday, May 7 at Metropolis in Metrotown, One Match is giving us all a chance to give the gift of life in honour of our moth-

New Westminster church will bless your animals


Shiloh-Sixth Avenue United Church strives to be a welcoming place for people, but it hasn’t forgotten about the animals. The church is once again hosting a pet blessing, which is likely to feature critters in feathers, scale and fur. Ministry staff will be holding a pet blessing service on the lawn of the church on Sunday, May 1 at 2 p.m. “We talk about God’s unconditional love for us, and one of the best examples of that

unconditional love is pets – especially dogs, but my cat’s pretty good at it,” said Rev. Shannon Tennant in a press release. “And I’ve known some pretty attentive birds, as well.” Budgies, snakes, dogs, cats, hamsters and fish, as well as other non-human companions, are welcome to come with their human companions – although it’s important the animals be properly contained. If someone has a pet that cannot attend because they are uncomfortable around strangers are or are too young or not well,

their human companion is welcome to bring a photo. Tennant, the minister at Shiloh-Sixth Avenue United Church, launched the pet blessing last year. She once attended a pet blessing in Ontario whose attendees included llamas, horses, bugs and dogs and cats. A press release regarding the pet blessing notes that pets provide companionship, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg. They promote social interactions, encourage playfulness, exercise and laughter, and have been shown to lower blood pressure

and cholesterol levels. “He’s calming, even after he’s stolen the dishcloth to get someone to chase him around the house,” said Mary Nichol, the church’s children, youth and families minister about her dog, Samson. “When he sits beside me, I just relax. And he’s always glad to welcome me home, no matter what.” The pet blessing is the church’s way to say “thank you” for all that pets offer people. The blessing will include some readings, some prayers and a blessing and thank you to each pet that attends.

Showing what sport is all about Putting game first is behind junior B team initiative BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR

A made-in-Burnaby rooting section could show up at your next minor lacrosse game. For the past few weeks, the players, support staff and coach of the junior B Burnaby Lakers lacrosse team have been dropping in and making a lot of noise at selected youth home games. Armed with a multiheaded air horn and a pride in the Burnaby green, the junior B Lakers blast off encouragement to the home team in a collective show of support and community. “It’s huge for the guys. It makes us a solid team, and it inspires others,” said Burnaby Jr. B head coach Kerry Neratini. “I want to instill in these guys that they are role models. The (new wood) floor is a huge sense of pride for the association. It means a lot to me, and it means a lot to them to do these things.” At each game, the Burnaby juniors applaud the good play and, at the end of the match, name a player who has worked hard to receive an autographed game ball in the dressing room afterwards. The player is then invited to join the junior team at a later league game. “I had a lot of fun,” said 10-year-old Jayson Beauregard, who was given the honour following a novice A1 match on April 16. “I kept telling my mom, ‘I’m busy Saturday

Tom Berridge/THE RECORD

Giving back: Novice A 2 forward Thomas Vela receives an autographed game ball from Burnaby Jr. B team leader James Irwin after the minor game. night.’” When he got to the arena with his father, Jayson was met by team captain James Irwin and introduced to all the players.

Later, he took the warmup on the new wood floor at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre and acted as the team’s assistant coach on the bench.

Tom Berridge/THE RECORD

Strong supporters: Burnaby Jr. B Lakers James Irwin, left, and team goalie Robert Gilliam shout encouragement during recent minor league game.

He told them to go out and have fun, and even gave them pointers on the bench, which drew smiles and high-fives from the junior B players. “At the end of the game, (Irwin) said, ‘Hey boys, Jayson is leaving,’ and they all came and crowded around me. The next day at school in my journal, my teacher said we could write about anything we wanted – it was so long.” At first, the idea of grown young men going out and watching little guys play, seemed odd, said 20year-old Burnaby forward Brandon MacNeil. “I was surprised. But I think it’s a great idea. It builds community and more so, it helps build the game,” MacNeil said. “A couple of parents came up to us and said it was nice we came out and blew the horn and supported the kids. People are taking notice, so that is nice.

Hopefully it will continue.” And if the commitment of the Burnaby juniors is any indication, it will. Irwin, Robert Gilliam and assistant captain Curtis Koznecov are part of a core group, along with coach Neratini, that have wholeheartedly endorsed the positive initiative. Two seasons ago, Neratini, then an assistant coach with the Jr. B boys, got the team out to a couple of minor games to help boost attendance at their own home matches. This year, the brainstorming expanded on the concept of what might make this season even better. With the changing demographics in the city and player numbers on the decline, keeping up the great tradition of junior lacrosse in Burnaby was a concern. The boys decided to make it a team thing, hatching the idea of selecting a player of the game and afterwards inviting the youngster to become a part in their game. “It’s fun. At first, we thought there wouldn’t be anything in it for us,” said Irwin. “We went to the dressing room and signed a game ball, and had (the player) come onto the floor with us. He was ecstatic. I remember the look on his face when we gave him the ball. He appreciated it as much as we did.” In fact that was all Jayson was talking about, said Neratini. “When he left, he was smiling from ear to ear, and he felt eight feet high. The parents were very thankful.” “It was so amazing for him. He wants to get it again,” said Jayson’s father Brian. “I thought it was great.” And that was the unexpected benefit, said goalie Robert Gilliam. “Honestly, lacrosse isn’t about being No. 1. It’s about being with your teammates and having fun,” said Gilliam. “(Jayson) was so happy. … He’s still ecstatic, he wants to come out all the time. We’re trying to grow a community of lacrosse players in Burnaby.” Koznecov says the idea has proven to be a win-win for everyone involved. “I thought it’s really established a sense of pride ◗Juniors Page 28

’Bellies drop best game BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR

Spectators of the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League may have to wait until midMay before getting another chance to see a better game played. What few fans who pried themselves away from Game 7 of the Vancouver/Chicago NHL hockey playoff witnessed the defending Minto Cup champion Coquitlam Adanacs beat the New Westminster Salmonbellies 9-4 at Queen’s Park Arena on Tuesday. Despite missing a heaping handful of starting players from their lineups, both teams showed a high level of passing skills against two solid-looking defensive systems. The result was a surprisingly exciting contest seldom seen in the month of April. But it was Coquitlam that dictated the tempo throughout the league’s season opener. The Adanacs took a 2-0 lead midway through the first period, capitalizing on a pair of power play goals from Eric Ransom and the Record’s player of the game, Travis Cornwall. Brandon Goodwin got one goal back for the home team later in the period, but Coquitlam’s newest acquisition, Steve Fryer from Brampton, made sure the ‘Bellies got no closer, stopping 45 New Westminster shots en route to his first win in the West Coast league. At the other end of the floor, Salmonbellie keeper Frankie Scigliano made 31 saves but gave up three goals on the A’s power play. New Westminster trailed 6-3 after two periods. Righthander Leif Mydske tallied the home team’s only goal of the third period, splitting a pair of Adanac defenders down low and scoring a shorthanded marker that pared the deficit to 6-4. “Even though it’s our first league game, our young guys played well. But we have to put the ball in the net. Our offence just ◗Bellies Page 28

in being a Burnaby Laker,” he said, adding the more people who come out to a game, the better the team plays. “It’s a simple formula,” Koznecov added. “The more they like doing what they’re doing, the more they will stick with it.” Jayson could not agree more. When he told his Grade 4 school chums at Holy

Cross Elementary, one friend answered, ‘Oh, I wish I could play. I might want to play next year,” Jayson said. And that’s precisely what the Burnaby juniors hoped would happen. “If we get more kids to stay in the sport, I think we are winning,” Gilliam said. “We try our best. It’s not all about winning, it’s keeping the sport alive.” Irwin agreed. “I haven’t done much

volunteering and things like that. This is sort of my chance to do something without getting paid for it. I got a sort of satisfaction, getting a young kid out to our game – something I never had,” Irwin added. As for Jayson, well, it certainly appears that this will not be something that the excited youngster will soon forget. “Oh yeah, yeah, a lot,” he said. “I want to play forever.”

wasn’t getting it done,” said New Westminster head coach Dan Perreault. With 10 players not expected back until mid-May, Perreault said it was an opportunity for the newer players to make a statement that they belong. “Right now, it’s just getting a real good

look at who can play,” Perreault added. “(The Adanacs) are the defending Minto Cup champions, and we got a lot of work ahead of us.” The junior ‘Bellies travel to Victoria on Sunday to take on the Shamrocks at Bear Mountain Arena. The team is back at Queen’s Park on Tuesday for a date with the Delta Islanders. Game time is 8 p.m.

Your Personal Mission Statement

This article is by Chris Newell, Career Coach and Facilitator with Transitions Career & Business Consultants. Many people may be familiar with a trend that Chris Newell organizations have now adopted whereby they design, publicize and adhere to a company mission statement. These mission statements are created as a guide to promote the company’s purpose and values for its employees, customers and suppliers. When a company defines its values and principles publicly and commits to actions that support these values, they demonstrate integrity. Mission statements can also serve individuals as well as organizations. When putting together your mission statement, you are given an opportunity to reach deeper into what is really important to you in life. Most people long for a sense of meaning and purpose at some point in their lives. The process of writing and analyzing your own mission statement gives direction and clarification to your choices by defining your beliefs, your values and what you want to make of your life. You can then use these principles consistently as a guide to unify and direct all that you do so that there is meaning and purpose in your choices and your life. In order to write a mission statement, you need to ask yourself some challenging questions such as: “What is my purpose in life?” “What is truly important to me?” “What gives life meaning to me?” “What do I have to offer others?” A mission statement is a work in progress. It takes deep introspection and often many rewrites to produce it in final form, but when you do, it is something you can use to make powerful and effective decisions in your life and work. It challenges you to make sure you are living and working with purpose and integrity. This will ultimately strengthen your self-esteem, courage and determination. The Transitions Program, a free 3 week career exploration program is available to all unemployed people in the Lower Mainland. For information call 604-434-1177 or 604-681-2774.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Cancer June 21-July 22: You optimism, popularity and delight rise (all week, but especially Monday/ Tuesday). Social joys, flirtations, wish fulfilment and entertainment arrive! Make and accept invitations. Wishes might particularly come true in career, status and business areas. Something really significant has been building here for some months, and has either already offered a big step up for you, or will soon. Be alert, eager and ambitious. Two things can impede your advance: a partner, mate or competitor (or a “stubborn public”) or a home situation that demands compromise. Rest, plan midweek. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Be ambitious – you can make strides upward now. Although you might not see discernible progress, you’re “preparing the way” for a great run of luck in career, business, status and prestige areas from early June right into June 2012. So plug away, especially Monday. A major trend still flows through your areas of law, love, culture, far travel, education, publishing and intellectual endeavours. This is a lucky, surprising influence, so be ready to say “Ah, ha!” and embrace what comes – now into 2018, these zones (e.g., travel, school) could bring your mate for life! Happiness, midweek! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The big action, significant occurrences remain heavily weighted toward sexual bonds, intimate commitments, lifestyle changes, research, secrets, financial actions, investments, debts, consequences – and, overall, luckily so! But a new element enters now, an element of peace and understanding, of wisdom and compassion. You can decide to make a commitment while you’re clear about the results. Legalities, love and ethics also enter. This can bring sex with love, great cooperation with another, investments that are ethical also. Monday, Thursday, Friday support your efforts.

Aries March 21 - April 19: Chase money. Your charm and magnetism hit high strokes all week – use this in the pursuit of money, or in love’s service. The main thing is, don’t waste this time – five of eight planets are in Aries! This gives you extra kick, clout and luck – and hints that whatever happens now is significant in terms of your entire 80 or 90 years. Other than a bit of deception Wednesday morn, and a sluggish Saturday, this is a lucky, smooth week. Get things done! Two cautions: A partner or competitor has the upper hand. Don’t fight. If you oppose authority you’ll lose. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness climb, especially Monday onward. Get out, be seen, start significant projects. Your “world wide” luck is still a bit low, but that will change soon. June 4 will bring almost 13 months of huge, decade-high luck, particularly in finances, investments, debt, sex, lifestyle changes and commitments in legal, educational, cultural or travel areas that somehow turn your life around. So some of your energy right now might be wellspent preparing for future (near future!) action. Tap government, charities, researchers: They will aid. Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy is a bit low, so don’t put yourself in a “performance situation.” Rest, protect your health, dress sensibly, eat right. Fulfil obligations, but ignore those who clamour. You’re still in a period in which big wishes, lifemate needs and social yearnings are likely to be fulfilled. Some things can prevent this: first, deep, heart-bending romance, creative outpourings or taking big risks; second, investments, lifestyle changes, health, or “deep sex.” Of these, the “second” will be lucky June 2011 to June 2012; the “first” will begin to improve after mid-2012. Wish!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Though deep sexual, financial and health themes arise in May, a strong and lucky accent remains on relationships, marriage, business partnerships, fame and public relations, contracts and negotiations, litigation, relocation and opportunities in general. You’re cautious, 2010 to late 2012 – that’s good, but caution seldom grabs the prize. You have to leap, too. You know there’s at least one thing or person to leap to, and of course, reasons to and not to. My advice: Leap. A love affair, pregnancy, new financial picture, new domicile, even new country could result. Wow – life! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Though most of the luck and action of your life remain in the machinery, work and health realm, that won’t last past June. May brings intriguing meetings, partnership proposals, dealings with others, new contacts – and, perhaps, ideas/visions of new places you’d like to be, either across the globe or up the ladder of success. Maintain your equilibrium and sense of diplomacy this month, don’t fight or argue. Realize some of the new urges and new contacts that arise now hint at, might even develop into, the huge, lucky opportunities that arrive this June to June 2012. (Hints Monday.) Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Powerful luck, trends, movement, change still affect your romantic, creative, child-oriented, pleasure-seeking, speculative and sports zones (to June 4), but another trend moves in through May: Work. Work, health, machinery, duties, all that good stuff. As these don’t combine that well, usually, I’d split my time between them. Keep your eye on that quiet, deep long-term goal, too. Monday brings work success. Life’s filled with opportunities Wednesday noon to Friday noon – if you know how to co-operate, to accent another’s needs/desires. Soon, a major work project!

May 1 - 7 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The weeks ahead successfully combine security and expansion. Although romance,creativity,speculation and pleasure are accented in May, your luck in real estate, home, security, retirement, “Mother Nature” and similar zones continues strongly – but only to early June. If you’ve been hesitating about buying (repairing, renovating) that home or starting that retirement fund or garden, or about having a child, you should act soon. (One exception: real estate might be luckier if you wait until after May 10.) Romance Tuesday. Tackle chores midweek to Friday. Diplomacy, Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Pay attention to your “base,” especially Monday/Tuesday – family members, home, security, these deserve attention all month. You might have frequent visitors, or be travelling around town a lot, texting or phoning – but as the weeks pass, this travel and talk gently subside, to bring you, by June, into a year of quiet, peaceful domestic bliss. Or luck, at least, for some homebased friction will exist, mid-May through June. Romance and/or creativity, games and gambles pull you Wednesday to Friday. A Gemini might be involved. All’s fine! Chores, Saturday. Rest, nap all week. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: This is a pretty smooth, easy week – though Saturday (May 7) might be a little frustrating or rocky. The accent lies on short trips, acquaintances, siblings, paperwork, details, messaging. Be curious, follow your nose. Since money matters are still blessed (into early June) the best course would be to use this communications and fact-oriented period in the pursuit of money, to communicate with clients or potential employers, VIPs, etc. (Monday is good for this.) Your home life, family, security and diet (nutrients) gain importance Wednesday-Friday: Good results! • Reading: 416-686-5014
