Apology met with applause Crowd gathered in city hall cheers when mayor reads out ofﬁcial apology for historic discrimination against Chinese-Canadians BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
The City of New Westminster has become the first municipality in Canada to formally apologize for its discriminatory actions toward Chinese Canadians in past eras. Mayor Wayne Wright read the apology Monday night in city council chambers, which was packed with media and members of various Chinese organizations. An interpreter also read the apology in Mandarin. “The City of New Westminster formally apologizes to the Chinese community for its past actions which resulted in discrimination and exclusion, and it looks forward to working together in the spirit of friendship, community and cooperation to build strong bonds and lasting relations,” said the apology. Research done by city staff confirmed that city council acted in a discriminatory matter in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, particularly by restricting employment opportunities and by asking senior governments to pass discriminatory laws. “The City of New Westminster acknowledges, based on a review of city records covering the period from 1860 to 1926, that it acted in a discriminatory manner towards its Chinese community,” said the apology. “The City of New Westminster acknowledges that ◗Chu Page 3

Bottled water brouhaha stalls Move to ban bottled water in schools dries up – for now BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER
The board of education has put the question of whether to ban bottled water at local schools on the back burner until February.
Trustees voted at the Sept. 14 board of education meeting to defer a number of staff recommendations on bottled water in schools, which could lead to a ban on bottled water in schools, until next year. The recommendations include a review of current vending machine contracts for bottled water, a report on the status of water fountains and a feasibility study of phasing out bottled water to help reduce waste. The question of banning bottled water
first came to the board in January, when trustee Lori Watt introduced a series of motions to phase out bottled water use in the school district. Trustees passed the motions unanimously, but in March, the board directed staff to forward the original motion to school parent advisory councils and Dr. Nadine Loewen, the regional medical health officer, for review. ◗Water Page 8

Top cops want long-gun registry retained Political foes back off as police and supporters press their arguments BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER email@example.com
It looks like the long-gun registry will live for another day. The big debate about the gun registry comes as Parliament reconvened in Ottawa on Monday, and one of the first things to deal with was Conservative MP
Candice Hoeppner’s private member’s bill to kill the gun registry. The vote, scheduled for today (Wednesday), looks set to fail after at least six NDP MPs have flip flopped back to supporting the long-gun registry. Three local NDP MPs have strongly come out in favour of keeping the controversial program alive. “I’ve always supported the long-gun registry, and it’s looking more like the attempt to get rid of it is going to fail,” said Burnaby-Douglas MP Bill Siksay. “It’s been shown to be an important tool for the
police officers who use it daily, and I think once you get past the great criticism of the cost of setting up the registry, people will see that the registry has many benefits.” “We’re the only party offering solutions on how to fix the registry and make it better,” said New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly. “I believe we have the votes necessary to save the registry.” “I have asked people in the community what they want me to do, and I think it’s running 10 to one in favour of keeping the registry,” said Burnaby-New Westminster MP Peter Julian. “That’s why I’ll be voting
for the registry.” Local police chiefs also led the charge to urge the province’s Members of Parliament to vote to save the registry. Burnaby’s top cop, Chief Supt. Rick Taylor, said the long-gun registry is a vital tool his officers and civilian staff use daily. “In 2009, we accessed the registry 52,207 times and this year, in the first nine months, we’ve accessed it 41,267 times,” said Taylor. “That’s almost 100,000 times in ◗Guns Page 10

the Chinese community played and continues to play an essential role in the development, growth and prosperity of New Westminster. Currently, about 4,300 people of Chinese ancestry call New Westminster their home.” After reading the formal apology, council adjourned so people could gather for a short reception in city hall’s foyer. Many attendees, grateful for the city’s apology, posed for photos with council members. Burnaby resident Gim Wong was among those compelled to attend Monday’s meeting, having personally faced discrimination and seen the “terrible suffering” of other Chinese Canadians. Some, he said, committed suicide because of the conditions years ago. “Very, very unfair,” he said. “We were cheated at every move and every turn. A ragdoll was kicked around.” Wong, 87, is grateful to the City of New Westminster for its efforts to apologize for its racist actions. He said it’s a step in the right direction and hopes other jurisdictions will follow New Westminster’s lead. “I’m proud to be Canadian 110 per cent, but today, I’m proud to be Chinese.” Born in Vancouver’s Chinatown, Wong served in the Royal Canadian Air Force in the Second World War. It wasn’t until a decade after joining the air force that he was able to vote in Canada. In response to a request from the Canadians for Reconciliation, city council launched a reconciliation process with the Chinese community in September 2009. Bill Chu, chair and founder of Canadians for Reconciliation, asked the city to undertake a number of redemptive actions. “This is a process,” Chu said Monday night. “Today is by no means the end. It is a beginning.” Chu said the reconciliation process is about nation-building and bringing people together. He said Chinese people were not the only group that faced discrimination, nor was New Westminster the only city to discriminate against the Chinese. “New Westminster wasn’t the one push-

Making amends: Royal Canadian Air Force veteran Gim Wong, 87, shakes New Westminster Mayor Wayne Wright’s hand after the city formally apologized Sept. 20 to the descendants of Chinese Canadians for the past wrongs. ing for it. We are demanding the province to acknowledge the Chinese history as well, asking for a similar apology,” he said. “Tonight is a good start. We need all kinds of people across the province to do the right thing.” On Monday, Burnaby-New Westminster MP Peter Julian rose in the House of Commons to formally apologize for the actions of his predecessor, who contributed to the racist and exclusionary policies that were enacted at the time. “Sadly, it was one of my predecessors, who rose in this House as MP for New
Westminster, who introduced the resolution which led to the infamous act, which excluded Chinese immigrants to Canada for decades,” he said. “The contribution that Chinese Canadians have made to this country is immense. Though it is with sadness that we look at the past, we look with optimism to the future as Canadians of Chinese descent contribute mightily to the building of Canada. I rise today to formally apologize for the actions of my predecessor and his contribution to the racist and exclusionary policies that were enacted at the time. We are sorry.”
Julian said the City of New Westminster was issuing a formal apology after an extensive consultation process. He hopes other cities do the same. “This is an important date for Canada,” Chu said. “Today in the House of Commons, Peter Julian also expressed a similar apology to what his predecessor many years ago had done.” For more on this story, see Theresa McManus’s Only in New West blog.

Tougher laws already hitting drunk drivers BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
New Westminster Police wasted little time is putting new impaired driving legislation to work. Changes to B.C.’s impaired driving legislation that took effect Sept. 20 mean stiffer penalties for people caught driving with a blood-alcohol content of between 0.05 and 0.08, with a blood alcohol content above 0.08 or if they refuse to provide a breath sample. Under the new law, drivers found to have a blood-alcohol level of between 0.05 and 0.08 – the “warn” range – will face an immediate three-day driving ban, possible vehicle impoundment and fines or related fees of up to $600. Those caught in this warning range multiple times will face a driving ban of up to 30 days and fines or fees of up to $800. Until now, police have generally issued a 24-hour suspension for people caught driving with a blood-alcohol level between 0.05 and 0.08. “Very, very strong legislation,” said Sgt. Gary Weishaar of the New Westminster Police Service. “Fully supported by police agencies, certainly by us. It is very powerful legislation. It gives us some powerful tools to get drinking drivers off the road.” The new law also adds significant penalties for people caught with blood-alcohol level above 0.08 – the level at which drinking and driving becomes an offence under the Criminal Code of Canada. Drivers
caught above this level will face an immediate 90-day driving ban, loss of their vehicle for 30 days, and costs that could reach $4,060 including a fine, a driver’slicence reinstatement fee, the cost of a mandatory Responsible Driver Program, a towing and impoundment fee, and the cost of an ignition interlock device that the driver must use for one year after their driving suspension. The driver may also face criminal charges, especially if the infraction involves injuries or a crash. About 2:30 a.m. on Sept. 20, a New Westminster police officer spotted a motorist who was driving in a suspicious manner in the 1000 block of Agnes Street. Upon stopping the vehicle, the officer could smell alcohol and administered a roadside screening test. “The motorist subsequently failed,” Weishaar said. The officer completed the required administrative paperwork and faxed the report to the Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles. “The file was concluded,” Weishaar said. “That driver, as of 2:30 a.m. today, has had his driver’s licence suspended for 90 days and the vehicle was impounded for 30 days.” According to Weishaar, if the motorist had failed the roadside screening test before the new legislation took effect, he would have had a 24-hour suspension. It would have then been up to the officer’s ◗Strong Page 9

Those checks, he says, Some politicos are clearly worried help keep both police and the public about losing the “rural” gun vote. But safe. shouldn’t public safety and the ability of Vancouver Police Chief Jim Chu has
said that officers across Canada check with the registry about 14,000 times a day. He said police often deal with suicidal people, and knowing if those people have a firearm saves lives. As Chief Const. Peter Lepine of the West Vancouver Police Department summed it up: “Why do you think this information is so important? We do it when a student on a Facebook page says they are tired of being bullied and don’t want to take it any more. … We do it when people call to report a relative with mental health problems or a landlord calls to say a couple is fighting
and he doesn’t know if they have any firearms.” Yes, a farmer in a peaceful Saskatchewan town who uses his .22 for killing prairie dogs is probably not too pleased about having to register his gun. But guns can be moved from one place to another – and, unfortunately, domestic violence and mental illness also occur in idyllic prairie towns. It’s time to get politics out of this issue and listen to the police. The goal – and the only goal here – should be to ensure that fewer people die.
Running up score helps nobody IN MY VIEW
love high school football, I really do. But after watching a couple of contrasting blowouts this past weekend, I’m not sure what to make of the sport I love. The New Westminster Hyacks lost 49-0 to the Terry Fox Ravens in the Hyacks’ annual Homecoming game on Friday night. The next afternoon, in Vancouver College’s Homecoming game, they beat the St. Thomas More Knights 29-7, with the Knights getting their only score in the final three minutes. For non-football fans who may not understand how scoring works with football, all you need to know is that each game went into running time in the first half. Running time is the rule where the timekeeper goes to straight time as soon as one team gets a 29-point advantage or more. This allows the losing team a chance not to get blown out, and the winning team often takes the pedal off the gas so as to not to embarrass the losing team. The Ravens scored their 35th

point in the first minute of the second quarter, meaning there were almost 35 minutes of running time in the 48-minute game. Not only did the Ravens keep their starters in for the remainder of the first half, they had them come out for much of the second half. In fact, their seventh score was sent up by a 50-yard bomb from their starting QB, Cam Canales, to Ben Sharpe. When I asked Hyacks coach Farhan Lalji if he saw anything peculiar in who played the second half for the Ravens, he said he wasn’t offended at all. When I talked to Ravens co-head coach and defensive coordinator Tom Kudaba, a wellrespected name in high school football, he said they keep their defensive starters in to help teach their third-stringers what has to be done. I have no reason not to believe Kudaba and Lalji, but I, as a fan and reporter, was offended. I don’t think kids learn much from pounding another team mercilessly. When I asked a colleague – who’s also covered sports for many years – what he thought, he said that the Ravens aren’t known to push the limits on running up the score, but it did seem peculiar to him. I contrast this with what the Irish did when up 29-0 on the Knights. ◗Football Page 7
Arts groups’ opinions wanted Dear Editor:
Re: Massey meeting misses the mark, In My Opinion, The Record, Sept. 11. I’d like to thank Gavin Wishart for his feedback in an e-mail to me and reprinted in this paper following last week’s meeting between local arts groups and representatives from the City of New Westminster and School District No. 40. As Mr. Wishart is aware, the draft framework agreement struck between the city and school district to see three new schools built in New Westminster is one that involves everyone in the community. To that end, the city and school district are holding two public information sessions on the agreement on Sept. 23 and 25, and local residents are encouraged to attend to learn more about what is being proposed along with the potential community
benefits. Should residents wish to learn more about the project prior to the public information sessions, additional information, including the draft framework agreement, has been available online at both the city (www.newwestcity.ca) and school district (www.district.sd40.bc.ca) since July. Given that a key element of the agreement proposes replacement of the Massey Theatre with a new 1,000-seat community performing arts centre, the city will continue to meet with local arts groups and stakeholders who have been integral to the lifeblood of the Massey Theatre to solicit their feedback, understand their concerns and discuss potential solutions. There are many aspects to the future of the Massey Theatre – from the “bricks and mortar” concerns, to the issues of governance and sustainability. Equally as important is the continued success of the

Support local businesses
I would like to publicly encourage all New Westminster residents to support local small business in New Westminster. I have had such great interactions with the businesses in New West over the years and want to remind our citizens to frequent the amazing shops and services that are available right here in the Royal City. It is so refreshing to be greeted by a familiar faces and to be recognized as a regular and valued customer. The shops on 12th Street are amazing,
with many options for retail stores, dining and other services. The area around Sixth Street bustles with activity, and one could spend an entire day exploring the many businesses along the way. I would like to specifically recognize two local businesses that consistently impress me and make me proud to be from the Royal City. The Uptown Market on Sixth Street has friendly and helpful staff, always ready to assist. The beautiful flowers, produce and specialty breads make it a one-stop shop before an event or dinner party. Across the street at River’s Reach Pub one can find an amazing assortment of wines and spirits. The food in the pub is delicious, delivery quick and hot – always delivered with a smile. The staff in the beer and wine store are more than courteous and go over and above to provide excellent service. There is something special about New Westminster, and that to me is the people and the businesses that work hard to be an important and vital part of our community. Thank you, New Westminster businesses, and keep up the good work!

Coach Todd Bernett had his starters in the game for much of the third quarter, but almost every play was a running play up the middle. Defensively, his starters played deep into the half to try and preserve the shutout, with star Christian Covington not playing much at all. When the Knights were driving for what would be their only score, Bernett put Covington and some of the other defensive starters in to try and keep STM off the board, but in my opinion, that’s an understandable use of your personnel. Because I could see what Bernett was doing,
it never occurred to me to ask him or Knights coach Bernie Kully if there was anything peculiar taking place in the second half. But I still have that nagging thought that what took place on Friday night was, for lack of a better word, peculiar. Do kids learn something by either administering or receiving a lopsided loss? Why are coaches not inserting every player on the bench into a game that’s long been decided? And if you do have to keep your stars in, can you tell them to dial it down? I remember an old coach of former Burnaby Express star Kyle Turris telling me that when Turris was younger, by

far the best player and often the reason why their squad was winning handily, the coach would still play Turris, but he had to work on other facets of his game. If that meant he could only pass with his backhand, or he had to try and set up a teammate who hadn’t hit the scoreboard yet, that was what the coach told his star: Work on your game and help your teammates out, or you sit.

Water pressure pops tops BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
The weekend’s heavy rainfall caused a small mudslide and helped make some of the city’s manhole covers pop their tops. Sgt. Gary Weishaar of the New Westminster Police Service said some of the manhole covers popped off as a result of gushing water. While this happens on occasion, Weishaar said he can’t recall any motor vehicle accidents occurring as a result of the manhole covers popping off. According to Weishaar, the problem areas are usually spotted quickly and fixed by city crews. “It’s really quite something to see,” he said. “They are on it right away.” Jon McDonald, the city’s manager of engineering operations, said it’s rare that an entire manhole cover pops off because of rain.
“It’s not common,” he said, “but it does happen.” McDonald said the incidents usually occur near Front Street. As the water travels downhill, he said it gains in velocity - sometimes reaching the point that it pops up the lid. “It’s not unusual have the water squirt up through the lid,” he explained. “When our system is full, it is full.” In response to the heavy rainfall, the City of New Westminster called in extra staff on the weekend. Some responded to the manhole covers, while other monitored the city or responded to calls about flooding. “Some houses get some wet basements,” McDonald said. “It is pretty common.” The weekend’s heavy rainfall also resulted in a minor mudslide on Front Street, which was closed for about four hours early Sunday morning. “Nobody was injured,” McDonald said.

discretion to determine whether he should have been brought back to the office. “It’s very strong legislation,” Weishaar said of the new law. “It is going to be sending a clear message out there to motorists that it
won’t be tolerated.” New Westminster Police Service traffic officers received training in the new legislation, and later trained all of the department’s patrol officers. Weishaar hopes motorists will heed the new legislation, and encourages parents to talk
about the laws with their children who drive. “We don’t want to be taking peoples’ driver’s licences away, we don’t want to be seizing their vehicles,” he said. “Most importantly we don’t want them drinking and driving.”

The power of a global language Local, international artists coming to New West for Hip Hop 4 Peace Festival BY JULIE MACLELLAN REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Joose is a laid-back, soft-spoken kind of guy, lounging comfortably at a table at the downtown Waves coffeeshop, listening to the conversation going on around him. But ask him about his motivation for taking part in the Hip Hop 4 Peace Festival, and it’s like a switch flips. In an instant he’s leaning forward, talking animatedly, eyes alight with enthusiasm. “It’s my kind of festival,” he says. “The kind of music I was doing is the kind of lifestyle I live, that these guys are living.” The “these guys” in question are the organizers of the festival going on this weekend in New Westminster, Surrey and Vancouver. They’re with MAWO – Mobilization Against War and Occupation – and this is the sixth year they’ve hosted the free, all-ages festival. The pro-peace message is an important one for Joose, who’ll be appearing at the festival with his duo, Plazma, bringing a hip hop/reggae vibe to the stage. He’ll also have a chance to share some of his own personal material, some of which he writes for the festival itself. Getting the anti-war message out is everyone’s responsibility, he says, and it’s a responsibility that he as a musician takes seriously. “Everybody has their part to play,” he says. “We just happen to be artists.” Musicians, he says, are in the fortunate position of having public voices – and voices that people listen to. “When somebody decides to become an artist, people tend to look to them,” he says. “You know it’s your responsibility now. As an artist who does music, no matter what type … you tend to want to give back.” Joose moved to Vancouver from Toronto seven years ago to chase his music dream with Killawatt Records. He’s been a big backer of the festival since he first found out about it six years ago when he saw an ad in the newspaper. He called the organizers and played at the first event – then a small show at a coffeeshop in Surrey – and has stayed involved ever since. He credits his good rapport with the organizers for keeping him involved, and the good fit between the MAWO movement and the social-justice-inspired music he’s always leaned towards. “I’ve kind of always thought that way,” he says. He’s been making music in some form since he was just a “l’il rapper” and grew up immersed in socially conscious hip hop.

Quest in peace: Obsesion, an internationally known group from Cuba, is coming to the Hip Hop 4 Peace Festival being held this weekend in New Westminster, Surrey and Vancouver. That social consciousness is a common thread that runs through hip hop music, points out Janine Solanki, one of the festival organizers. Though many people are familiar with the commercialized versions of hip hop heard on the radio, she points out that the music itself was born in the ghettos of New York. “Hip hop from its roots has been against oppression, against poverty,” she says, adding it’s becoming even more widespread around the globe as various cultures adopt hip hop forms to express messages about their own particular situations. There’s been an “explosion” in Palestinian hip hop and in the Middle East at large, and it’s long been part of the culture in Latin America – Colombia, Mexico and Cuba being hot spots. “Hip hop has kind of become a global language,” Solanki says. “The majority of artists in our lineup are native hip hop artists who are using hip hop to talk about their communities. We use our festival as a platform for these artists.” That means offering stage space to those who may face oppression in society at large – people of colour, women.
Giving women a platform in a traditionally male-dominated music form is important to organizers, she notes. On the bill is Sista Hailstorm, who’s coming up from Seattle for the weekend, alongside local acts Ndidi Cascade and Deanna Teeple, Kia Kadiri and Misha-Q. Headlining the festival is Obsesion, one of Cuba’s most successful and outspoken hip hop groups, who have long been involved in women’s rights and Afro Cuban rights. The idea, Solanki notes, is to try to make a return to the kind of culture that was alive in the days of the Vietnam War, when the anti-war message was pervasive in film and music. “Anti-war politics were immersed in everything,” she says. “That’s kind of what we want to see again, what we try to foster.” The festival’s organizers are mostly young people like Solanki herself – she’s a computer student at BCIT – although she notes that the volunteers who are putting it all together range in age from 14 to 76. From their 76-year-old counterpart, she says, many of the young volunteers are learning a great deal about the Vietnam

A Royal City celebration: Damon Calderwood, at left, sings with a chorus of New Westminster Secondary School students during a rehearsal for Stump City Stories for Youth. The musical, a revised version of City Stage New West’s award-wining production, is on stage at the school on Thursday.
A moment in history Stump City Stories for Youth celebrates the city’s past in music
New Westminster Secondary School students are singing their way into a page of the city’s history. On the heels of the City of New Westminster issuing a historic apology to the Chinese community, students from NWSS are taking part in a musical project that celebrates the city’s past. This Thursday, Sept. 23, students will be taking part in Stump City Stories for Youth, a project by City Stage New West. Stump City Stories is a newly commissioned musical based on the history of New Westminster. Written for the city’s 150th anniversary celebrations last year by award-winning composer George Ryan, Stump City Stories originally played to standing ovations in public performances at Douglas College. It was then nominated for an Ovation Award for Best New Musical. The Ovation Awards celebrate the best of musical theatre in the Lower
Mainland. Spurred on by the musical’s success, City Stage New West looked for a way to reach out to the city’s youth and got permission from the school district to create a tailored-for-youth, shortened version of the full-length musical specifically for NWSS students. City Stage New West volunteers spent the last year raising money to help bring the musical to the youth of New Westminster at no charge to the school district or the students. Many NWSS students will be directly involved in the production, as a high school chorus will sing the show’s finale, So Much To Be Proud Of, alongside the professional cast. The project also includes teaching artists visiting the school, as well as question-and-answer sessions with the performers. Renee Bucciarelli, artistic director of City Stage New West, noted in a press release that it’s particularly fitting for the production to be on stage this week, since the musical contains a lengthy segment about Yi Fao, New Westminster’s old Chinatown. Yi Fao was once the largest

Chinatown in British Columbia, and its stories are told from the perspective of the character Chung Koh. Actor Jeremy Lowe, in a song called Memory Box, sings the story of Chung Koh’s father’s hard life in B.C. as a new immigrant working on the telegraph to Quesnel in the mid-1800s. “Performing this section of the show at NWSS will undoubtedly have a profound resonance,” Bucciarelli said in the press release. “Everyone knows about the graveyard directly under the school. At one point in the script, Chung Koh sings bittersweetly of his father’s funeral day, mentioning that one day the family will want to return his bones to the land where he was born. ‘Until then we must protect his grave,’ he says, bowing respectfully to his father’s memory. “It’s very moving. Great art can help create deeper understanding of our mutual human condition; perhaps we may achieve a little of that with this project.” Stump City Stories for Youth is running on Thursday for two studentonly performances at the high school. firstname.lastname@example.org

Bandathon a labour of love THE LIVELY CITY JULIE MACLELLAN
$9,827.14. That’s a pretty nice number for any bank account – and it’s a pretty impressive total for a Tuesday afternoon checkin at the New Westminster Secondary School Fan of the Bandathon website. The bandathon fundraiser is happening this coming Saturday (Sept. 25) and will see students playing, in shifts, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. They’re collecting pledges to help the music department fulfil a variety of ‘wish list’ items – including a new sound system, an electronic keyboard and ergonomic musicians’ chairs.
Ten per cent of the money raised will also go to help the Lower Mainland Purpose Society, which offers a variety of educational and life-skills programs for youth. Needless to say, the fundraiser has been a big endeavour for the department, and organizers are sending out their thanks to a variety of people. Nate and Naomi King and their company, Twisted Lime Media Inc., were responsible for creating the website that’s being used to undertake the promotion. Nate, Naomi and their staff took a week of their business time to design both the creative end and the practical workings of the website. (Incidentally, they’re the parents of Tala King, an award-winning Grade 11 saxophone player.) Steve Clements has been the project’s teacher liaison – and, as parent
Nory Johrden noted in an e-mail, “He is so dedicated to the music department you would think he had a bedroom to sleep there.” Organizers are also expressing appreciation to Kelly Proznick, the music department director, who “stands behind us 1,000 per cent and is an upbeat, progressive and fabulous teacher who is passionate about music.” Individuals and businesses are being invited to help out the bandathon cause, and businesses can be recognized as corporate sponsors on the website. Check out www. fanofthebandathon.ca for more details on how give. You can choose to sponsor a particular student or just make a general donation. Check out the Saturday, Sept. 18 Record for a full feature story.

He will be representing B.C. and Canada at the upcoming Project Cultural South international conference in Peru. He’ll also be on a book tour with Afternoon of Death, the latest of his six books, in Chile. Best wishes to Alejandro in his travels.

Drama opens Vagabond season
Faith and doubt are in the spotlight when the Vagabond Players presents its season opening production in October. Doubt, the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by John Patrick Shanley, is the New Westminster theatre group’s first production of the season. It runs at the Bernie Legge Theatre in Queen’s Park from Oct. 21 to Nov. 13. The play is set in 1964 and explores the turbulent relationship between Sister Aloysius and the parish priest, Father Flynn, a new arrival at the St. Nicholas Catholic Church School in the Bronx.
After a brief conversation with another nun, Sister Aloysius suspects the priest of interfering with one of the school’s male students – and she sets in motion a chain of events that is meant to destroy Father Flynn’s character and reputation. The production is directed by Judi Price, and the cast includes Marianne LaRochelle as Sister Aloysius and Rob Egger as Father Flynn. Also featured are Carline LemireSteel as Sister James and Nyasha Katedza as Mrs. Muller. Doubt runs Oct. 21 to Nov. 13, with evening shows at 8 p.m. Thursday to Saturday, and matinees on Sunday at
2 p.m. Tickets are $15 regular, $13 for seniors and $5 for students. Call 604-521-0412 to reserve, or book by e-mailing reservations@ vagabondplayers.ca. The rest of the Vagabond Players’ 2010/11 season includes The Highwayman’s Christmas, an Elwoodettes Marionettes musical, in December; Norman, Is That You?, a comedy, in January and February; Amadeus, a drama, in March and April; and Shadow of Murder, a murder mystery, in June. Check out www.vagabondplayers. ca for all the details.

Getting the right diagnosis isn’t always easy HEALTHWISE
DR. DAVIDICUS WONG
ave you ever left the doctor’s office, feeling rushed, uneasy and worried that you don’t have the right diagnosis? Have you ever felt that the doctor wasn’t listening? Do you sometimes feel like doctors are thinking of you as a disease
or a problem rather than a real person? In medical school, we learn to recognize patterns of disease, and while we listen to a patient talk about their condition, in our heads, we run through a list of possible explanations – the differential diagnosis. We are taught to listen first and not interrupt the patient too quickly. We also start with open-ended questions before funnelling down to more precise questions. You can tell if the doctor has made up his mind about your problem if
he starts asking a series of short close-ended questions that just require a one word answer, such as yes or no. If the doctor believes she already knows what you have, the physical examination will be very focused and brief. Once the doctor gives you a working diagnosis, you may be sent for some lab tests to confirm it, and of course, the treatment prescribed will be based on that diagnosis. Doctors tend to get frustrated if a patient’s presentation of symptoms don’t fit a typical pattern. A few rise
to the challenge, maintain a broad differential of possible diagnoses and won’t rest until they arrive at the solution. But if a doctor is in a rush or doesn’t have much invested in your professional relationship, he may narrow the differential too quickly and make a diagnosis – usually the most common condition to explain your symptoms even if they don’t quite fit. An experienced doctor’s intuition is like one’s conscience. If after a patient encounter, I have a sense of unease – that I missed
something or that the presentation doesn’t quite fit the diagnosis – I’ll go back to my notes and think things through again. Sometimes, making the right diagnosis requires calling up the patient to ask a few more questions or considering different investigations. Patients can inadvertently force a doctor to make premature diagnoses by presenting a barrage of problems that he or she could not possibly work through systematically in a single office visit.
We usually want to see all the patient’s concerns up front – at least a summary list, so that we can realistically give them attention. I have a golden rule in practice: to treat each patient with the same degree of care I would want for a member of my family. If you want your doctor to do the same for you, ask her, “What would you recommend to your mother or father if they had my condition?” Dr. Davidicus Wong is a physician at PrimeCare Medical.
Stories of African grandmothers at the library BY DEBRA NELSON CONTRIBUTOR email@example.com
n May, 500 grandmothers from 14 African countries and 42 Canadian grandmothers gathered in Manzini, Swaziland for the first African grandmothers’ gathering on the continent. They were joined by 1,000 women for a march in the streets of Manzini. The gathering was co-sponsored by the Stephen Lewis Foundation and SWAPOL (Swaziland Positive Living). African grandmothers have taken on
the task of raising some of the 14 million children orphaned by the AIDS pandemic, with few resources. Many of the grandmothers suffer agerelated illnesses and, having buried their adult children, begin to parent again in their 60s, 70s and 80s. These courageous women are pivotal in holding their families and communities together at the frontlines of the AIDS pandemic. They met in Swaziland to share their experience and knowledge, and to celebrate their progress in beating back the ravages of HIV/AIDS. In Canada, the Grandmothers to
Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation began in 2006 on the eve of International Women’s Day. It has grown in four years to a national movement of 8,000 women who have raised more than $9 million. The group in New Westminster, comprised of grandmothers and “grandothers,” is called the Royal City Gogos. It is part of a network of more than 20 groups in the Lower Mainland. Janine Reid, coordinator of the Royal City Gogos, attended the gathering in Swaziland. She will be at the New
Westminster Public Library to share her experience at the gathering. Her presentation will highlight the stories of these resilient African women and their progress in turning the tide of HIV/AIDS and moving beyond basic survival to forge a vibrant future for themselves and the orphaned children in their care. The presentation will take place at the New Westminster Public Library on Wednesday, Sept. 29 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The library is at 716 Sixth Ave. and is wheelchair accessible. To register, call the library at 604-527-4667.

Barbara recalls “In 2008 I broke my right arm and decided that a watercolour painting class might be good therapy. . . so off I went to New Westminster’s Century House and began my classes with Robert Ashcroft. To my surprise, I found that I could paint! Robert said that he usually likes his students to have ﬁve years experience in acrylics and oils before starting watercolours. I told him that, at age 69, I didn’t have ﬁve years! All my life I have been a student, studying religion, nutrition, farming, animal husbandry, and later, more formally getting a degree in Sociology, Latin American Studies, and Education. So learning to paint was and is a new academic venture for me, as well as, a wonderful stretching of my right brain.”

Youth and Seniors will gather to explore their similarities and differences.

Seniors – Welcom Welcome to the Library! You’re #1 in our book What are seniors doing at the library? Everything! Whatever your interests, the library can help you explore more. Are you learning Spanish at Century House this Fall? Make sure you take a look at the language books, CDs, and DVDs we have at the library. And if Spanish isn’t on your list, maybe you’ll be interested in French, Chinese, Latin, or Greek. Do you want to ﬁnd out about the Royal City? Take books like The New Westminster Frasers Baseball Club by local author Ken McIntosh home with you. Also, in the comfort of your home, visit the Local History Site on our webpage at www.nwpl.ca. You’ll ﬁnd a wealth of information as well as historical photographs. But if local history is truly your passion, walk up the stairs or take the elevator to the Reference Department. Be prepared to be amazed at the collections that are found there.
Planning to improve your skills by taking dancing classes with the New Westminster School Division Continuing Education program? The library can help. We have books as well as DVDs to help you learn and practice. And you can ﬁnd your favourite songs and music to move to in our CD collection.
Maybe you’re planning a trip. Find out about art, the music, the cooking, the history, the geography, the literature, the social life and customs of the places you’re going to. It’s all waiting for you at the library. And don’t forget the Fall Events are beginning in the Library. There are Evenings of Poetry, Book Club Cafes, presentations by the New Westminster Historical Society, and Travel Slide Shows (to name just a few) being offered. Pick up an Events Brochure in the Library for a complete description of programs.
If you can’t visit the library because of illness, or a physical or visual handicap, or inﬁrmity, the Home IMPORTANT Library Service may be available to bring library materials to you. Call us at 604.527.4650 INFORMATION! to ﬁnd out if you are eligible for this program

’Bellies come home without cup
Hyacks brought down by Ravens
BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Peterborough nets Mann Cup in Game 6 win Lucky number 13 for the Peterborough Lakers came at the expense of the unlucky New Westminster Salmonbellies. The Lakers capped off their 13th Mann Cup victory on Friday with a 15-9 win in Game 6 over the Royal City squad that has now lost three straight Mann Cup finals. “It’s harder each time you lose,” Salmonbellies general manager Dan Richardson said on Saturday afternoon. “The expectations are higher each time so it’s harder when you don’t meet those expectations.” The ‘Bellies got the start they were looking for, scoring the first two goals by 4:10 of the first, on markers from Jamie Floris and Pete McFetridge. But the Lakers scrambled back to a 4-4 tie after the first period on the strength of a hat trick from Scott Evans and a goal and two assists from John Tavares. “We felt very good after the first period,” said Richardson. “We got the start we were looking for.” After the teams played a tight second period, marked by Evans’ fourth goal, the game turned in the final five seconds of the period when ‘Bellie Kyle Ross punched an unsuspecting Evans in the back of the head and received

assists. Richardson, fully aware that a Western team hasn’t gone to Ontario and won a Mann Cup since 1986, said his squad played well, but didn’t get any Lady Luck. “We didn’t get too many bounces,” he said. “I’m talking about not getting
Farhan Lalji minced no words when talking about his 0-3 New Westminster Hyacks. “We’re just not good enough,” said Lalji after his squad was bludgeoned 49-0 by the Terry Fox Ravens at Mercer Stadium on Friday night. “I saw it coming. We were awful during the week and I’m a firm believer that what you do from Monday to Thursday dictates what happens on Friday night. We had a horrible first day of practice … We took a significant step backward this week.” On a night when the Hyacks were held to only 92 yards of offence, the Ravens justified their provincial number 2 ranking and got a bit of revenge over the squad that eliminated them from the 2009 playoffs in the quarterfinal stage. For the Hyacks, being shut out for the second time in three weeks blunted the progress made in a 40-20 loss to W.J. Mouat last week. “There were some signs last week that offensively, we woke up,” said Lalji. But those gains were hard to see against the physically dominant Ravens. “They’re the best team we’ve played this year,” said Lalji, “but they didn’t

Bright moment: Alex Gajic tries to beat Peterborough keeper Mike Thompson in Game 6 of the Mann Cup last Friday. The ‘Bellies lost 15-9 despite Alex’s goal and three assists. Peterborough won its 13th Mann Cup on the strength of MVP Shawn Evans and older brother Scott, who potted six goals in the deciding game. a five-minute roughing major. The Lakers were holding an 8-6 lead at the time but opened the third period with two power-play markers, with Evans’ younger brother Shawn scoring at 2:22 of the third, followed by Scott at 4:06. “The Ross punch was
something we didn’t need to do,” admitted Richardson. “Our PK (penalty killing) was doing a good job until that point but those Evans boys, they were dialled in.” Scott Evans would finish with six goals and two assists on the night while Shawn walked away with
the MVP after a one goal, six assist effort. Shawn finished the six-game Mann Cup series with 32 assists, breaking Josh Sanderson’s 2002 mark of 26 helpers in seven games. The Lakers also got an eight-point effort from John Grant who finished with a hat trick and five
Fans take part in brotherhood of Mann BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The River’s Reach was packed as if it were a Vancouver Canucks playoff game. But it wasn’t Canada’s national winter sport that had everybody jumping for joy or biting their fingernails, it was Game 6 of the Mann Cup for Canada’s national summer sport. The hometown ‘Bellies were fighting for their lives, ultimately losing 15-9 and the best-of-seven series 4-2 to the Peterborough Lakers. But for the packed tables of lacrosse fans, it was a chance to celebrate the brotherhood that is Royal City lacrosse. Jack Fulton just returned from Peterborough, where he watched his team play the first five games
of the series. “I had to be back because I’m organizing the (Salmonbellies) alumni golf tournament,” said Fulton. “They were all good games, but out guys fell just a bit short.” Fulton has four Mann Cup rings to his credit: 1958, 1959, 1962 and 1965. Fulton said the task of winning out east for a western team is hard to do justice to. “I think you have to be 25 per cent better and at this level, nobody’s 25 per cent better,” he said. “They’ve got guys like John Grant, Tracy Kelusky and John Tavares and those guys are pretty good.” The mere mention of the Tavares name brings a smile to the face of Steve Goodwin. Goodwin remembers the 42-
year-old superstar well. “John actually came and played with us in Vancouver in 1990 when we went to the Mann Cup,” said the local real estate agent. “He was 22 back then and we lost four straight to Brooklin.” But that’s not the only memory Goodwin has of Tavares. “One of those games, John did a doubleheader. He was playing university football, I think for McGill, and he played an afternoon game at safety and played for us that night,” said Goodwin. “That’s how good an athlete John is.” Goodwin was an assistant to current coach Bob Salt, but with three kids, Goodwin left just as the ‘Bellies began their ascent back into the upper lacrosse echelons.
While Goodwin doesn’t have any Mann Cup rings to show off, his friend John Wilson won the coveted cup twice, but has only one ring to show for it. “I won as a junior call-up by New West in 1989 and I also won in 2001 when I was with Coquitlam,” said Wilson. “I don’t have the 1989 ring because my place got broken into and that ring was stolen.” Wilson doesn’t let that incident get him down, as he takes pleasure in ribbing Goodwin when the Realtor starts giving him the gears. “I can’t hear you because my rings are clogging up my ears,” said Wilson as he referenced a famous hockey put-down by goalie Patrick Roy to opposing centreman Jeremy Roenick. Wilson said he should have
had a third ring too, as he was an 18-year-old in 1986 when Casey Cook called and asked if he wanted to play in the playoffs for the senior Bellies. “I had tickets to a Lions game at Empire Stadium,” said Wilson. “So I told Casey that he should call up Brian Nikula. ... Nik gets called up and that’s the year they went out east and won the Mann Cup, the last time a western team has gone out and taken the Cup out east.” Cook remembers that championship well, as that was the second of the four Cook would win. “We beat Brooklin in six games and it was extremely difficult,” said the current New Westminster school trustee. “It was our fourth time going out east, and that’s ◗Mann Page 39

do anything we didn’t expect them to. … We just didn’t execute. We made some mistakes, and they made us pay.” The Hyacks started nicely, with lineman Derek Stagner recovering a Terry Fox fumble at the Ravens’ 27-yard line. But the Hyacks could only gain five yards on the next four plays before turning the ball back over. On the next play, Matteo Nardone outran the Hyacks up the right side for a 78yard touchdown 2:15 into the game, and the Ravens never looked back. After the Hyacks drive stalled, the Ravens got the ball back on their own 41, and Jared Soll ripped a 59-yard TD at 6:34 of the first quarter to extend the lead to 14-0. Jacob Patko would extend the lead to 21-0 with 1:53 left in the first quarter, and the rout was officially on. Soll would score his second TD 25 seconds into the second quarter when Hyacks quarterback Regan Eberding and running back James Belgrave fumbled a handoff that was recovered by Fox’s Alex Agnoletto. Soll took a 25-yard screen pass from Cam Canales and rumbled up the left side to make the score 28-0. On the subsequent kickoff, Manraj Bains muffed the kick and the Ravens made it 35-0 on a five-yard throw from Canales to Tanner White. The game then went into running time, meaning the final 34 minutes of the game were stopped only for a timeout or injury. Soll would finish with a third touchdown, a one-yard run just before the half to make it 42-0, and Canales finished the scoring with a one-yard quarterback sneak early in the fourth quarter.
Canales finished four-of-nine for 79 yards in the air, with most of that coming on a 50-yard completion to Ben Sharpe in garbage time. Ravens’ co-head coach and defensive coordinator Tom Kudaba was proud of his team’s effort. “We were pretty on tonight,” said Kudaba. “We were clicking on all cylinders, and our guys were really geared up for this game.” Kudaba admitted his squad didn’t start well, but their stars turned the game around for them. “Our QB really understands what we’re trying to do, and he leads,” said Kudaba of Canales. Fox kept its starters in the game while ahead by six touchdowns, but Kudaba said not much should be read into that. “We have 15 or 16 kids who can start for us on defence, and when we go to our third-string guys, we need some of the older kids to keep the system working. … It’s simple, but it’s technical.” Lalji also saw no problem with how the second half went, saying he has a lot of respect for Kudaba and Fox’s offensive coordinator, Martin McDonnell. “It’s not up to them to stop them,” said Lalji. “I’m not offended at all.” What did bother Lalji was his squad came up so short on Homecoming night, an occasion on which they were previously unbeaten. “Absolutely, it hurts more that we lost on Homecoming,” he said. “The kids knew it.” The road doesn’t get any easier for the Hyacks, as they host the Vancouver College Fighting Irish this Friday at Mercer Stadium at 7 p.m. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

breaks on face-offs, not getting the right bounce at the right time, just not getting breaks.” The ‘Bellies were led offensively by Alex Gajic, who finished with a goal and three assists, Floris and Cliff Smith with two goals and an assist each, and Jordan McBride, who had a goal and two assists. The ‘Bellies were buoyed by the first appearance of rookie Corbyn Tao, who missed the first five games because of school conflicts. As for looking ahead to the future, Richardson said youth is on their side. “Their average age is 28 and ours was 25, so we’re a young team,” he said. “I
firmly believe that when we win our first Mann Cup, we will win many more after that, and we’ll soon forget about the three we lost.” As for what changes the squad will need to make in 2011, Richardson said it’s too early to tell. “We will get together, and we’ll talk to our players and see what we need to do,” said Richardson. “We’re not afraid to make changes, but today (Saturday) is too soon to think about that. We fly back home Sunday, and we’ll start thinking about next year after that. “Next year, we intend to be hosting the Mann Cup, and hopefully we’ll get another chance at Peterborough.”

how long it took us to bring the Cup back home.” Cook, with championship rings in 1981, 1989 and 1991 as well, said the biggest problem back them was hydration. “Our guys were losing 10 to 12 pounds a game, the place was so humid,” said Cook. “Our guys were getting stomach cramps, and we had to make sure everybody was always hydrated.”
As the new Salmonbellies went down to defeat, the old ‘Bellies could only offer encouragement. “Their time will come,” said Fulton. “They’ve got such a great young team, and they’ve got a good team leading them.” “We went to 11 Mann Cup finals in 16 years and we won four,” said Cook. “Just getting there is tough, but winning is even tougher.”

With the number of apprentices expected to double in the next year, Kent Orrock believes we’re seeing the ﬁrst steps of a renewed respect for the trades. He now entertains several phone calls a day regarding applications to apprenticeship programs and inquiries about how to get involved in this steadily growing industry. Mr. Orrick, the human resources co-ordinator for the British Columbia Road Builders and Heavy Construction Association welcomes the interest. “It can only help recruitment efforts when it becomes a point of pride for parents to have a son or daughter who is a ‘dozer operator, pulling down as much as $42 an hour.” After decades of ﬁghting negative perceptions about the boom-and-bust nature of employment and the hard work in construction and other heavyindustry sectors, there has been a steady increase of interest in a career in the trades. “They’re getting in at a time when they will deﬁnitely be able to [work until they] retire in this industry,” says Orrock. The federal government has recently proposed tax incentives for employers who take on apprentices, and grants for individuals who sign on for skilled trades training. Sighting a serious shortage of trades people, the federal government is now attempting to make the lucrative trade industry even more enticing to prospective employees. “The difﬁculty Canadian employers are having ﬁnding skilled tradespeople is becoming an impediment to economic growth,” the government said in its budget documents. “Meanwhile, many young Canadians ﬁnd themselves in low-paying work, and are either not encouraged to consider the trades or are unable to do so because of ﬁnancial barriers.”With measures to give employers tax credits of up to $2,000 a year for the ﬁrst two years that they employ and train eligible apprentices, and as well as cash grants of $1,000 a year to eligible apprentices in the ﬁrst two years of their training, the federal government is stepping up the push for

more Canadians to consider a career in the trades. The federal government projects that nearly 100,000 apprentice workers will beneﬁt as a result of the new grant and tax credit. Industry associations and community colleges have also stepped up their efforts to recruit and train the next generation of trades people.In past years, there has been a strong amount of pressure from teachers, parents and friends to go to university. Opportunities in the trades have often been overlooked. This is gradually changing, in part because of industry association campaigns and promising labour market projections. The common misconception that the impending retirement of baby boomers will open up jobs in all ﬁelds, across all sectors, is slowly being replaced by a better understanding of how the boomers’ withdrawl from the marketplace will shape the next few years. “The reality is that the most pronounced [recruitment] challenges are going to be for skilled trades and apprenticeships on the one hand, and executive management talent on the other,” says Ian Cullwick, national human capital practice leader with Toronto-based managing consulting ﬁrm Deloitte. With trade shortages already affecting some sectors, employers are taking a more active role in the training and education of their future employees. The B. C. Road Builders and Heavy Industry Association, for example, has developed and launched a new program combining classroom training with on-the-job instruction to support a number of highway and port-building megaprojects currently in the works. The ﬁrst stage of the program, which is being paid for by industry, is designed to teach the basics of road building and heavy construction. “The aim is to give them a really good essential knowledge about the equipment that’s going to be used and how to maintain that equipment,” he says. “They’ll also be taught the basics of civil engineering, so they’ll know about grades, aggregates and environmental issues.” Says Orrock. From there students can move on to apprenticeships in asphalt paving or specialized construction jobs. It gives them a starting point to continue working with heavy equipment like backhoes, excavators, bulldozers, graders and 50-ton trucks, or work. Mr. Orrock says that members of his association are committed to providing management training, in addition to hard-skills training, for those interested in moving into supervisory and management positions later in their careers. Meanwhile, Mr. Orrock describes his ideal candidates. “We’re looking for people who like to work outside and who don’t want to sit in an ofﬁce.” If this sounds like you, we’ve made your search that much easier. Given the incredible (and growing) demand for qualiﬁed tradespeople in Canada and around the world, Trades has become the hottest area in training at colleges and career colleges across the country.

Take Your Career in a New Direction Continued from previous page
NEW HORIZONS Now that you’ve identiﬁed why it is time to move on, follow some key strategies for making a smooth transition into a new career. 1. Make a list of likes and dislikes: Did you get into your current career because you needed money right away or you had no other options at the time? Don’t feel bad; many people assume careers out of necessity rather than a genuine interest in that ﬁeld. Now’s your time to jot down what you really like to do. What are your hobbies? How do you like to spend your time? It’s easy to focus on what you don’t like to do, but assessing what you enjoy can put you on the path to a career that may be better suited. There are even career assessment tests and services that can help you if you truly are unsure. 2. Explore what’s out there: Try and match up careers to your interests. For example, if you love animals you may consider becoming the owner of a pet shop or study to be a veterinarian. How much research you do will depend on just how drastic the change will be. For example, switching from salesperson to a marketing executive might not be as big of a change
as a salesperson investigating becoming a broadcast journalist. And don’t forget that no matter how large the career leap may seem, it’s likely you have certain skills (communication, ability to work with a team, general ofﬁce skills) that can be transferred seamlessly to a new career.
3. Consider education and training: There are times when you won’t have all the skills needed and returning to school or enrolling in a training course is a wise idea. This may involve extra ﬁnancing, so engage in education only when you have ﬁrmly decided on a new career path. 4. Be ﬂexible: Remember, you are really starting out from scratch when entering a new career and won’t have the level of seniority your current career or company allows. You may have to make concessions in job location and salary in order to feel more satisﬁed in your work. 5. Try a new career on for size: You can do temp work or volunteer in the career you’re considering to see if it’s all you thought it would be. This way you don’t get in over your head or ﬁnd out it wasn’t the challenge you imagined. FRENCH LESSONS by Teachers from France. Pronunciation, grammar, reading, writing. Gr 1-Gr 12.
