City puts kids first in charter BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

The City of New Westminster is one of the first B.C. communities to approve a charter that enshrines a “children first” agenda. “The New Westminster Children’s Charter supports the efforts of the city in creating a more child-, youth- and family-friendly city,” said a report presented to council on Monday. “Council’s endorsement of the charter is further evidence of the city’s leadership in this area and will be instrumental in having other bodies and organizations endorse it.” Council has endorsed the New Westminster Children’s Charter in principle and supported the posting of the charter in all civic facilities. “It reaffirms a lot of the work the city is doing about making New Westminster a friendly place to raise a family, to raise children,” said Coun. Jonathan Cote. The staff report said the New Westminster early childhood development committee has been promoting a “children first” agenda. The committee’s efforts have included developing a website (www.kidsnewwest.ca), hosting events for families and training sessions for early childhood development professionals and preparing studies in support of the development of child development hubs in the Queensborough and uptown/ downtown neighbourhoods. The committee recently developed the New Westminster Children’s Charter, which is based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The report noted that the United Nations ◗Charter Page 4

War paint: Chris Hennebery, an artist and former Armed Forces Reserves solider who spent two decades with the Royal Westminster Regiment, will soon be heading off to Afghanistan through the Canadian Forces Artists Program.

Artist bringing brushes to war zone

Former soldier to capture impressions of Afghanistan BY ANDREW FLEMING REPORTER afleming@royalcityrecord.com

A former soldier is getting ready to head off to war-torn Afghanistan, only instead of carrying a rifle, he’ll be armed with pencils and paintbrushes. Chris Hennebery, 42, spent more than 20 years as a member of the Royal Westminster Regiment and wants to (literally) draw attention to the stories of reserve soldiers

who leave their lives and family behind to serve their country overseas. Sometime next spring (the military won’t let him give the exact dates), the married father of two young children will be trading the cozy confines of his office at a downtown software development company for the mean streets of Kandahar as part of the Canadian Forces Artists Program, a military initiative that allows volunteer artists to document the experiences of Canadian troops at home and overseas. “I’m getting embed status as an embedded artist,” said Hennebery, who will also

be accompanied by a photographer. “We’re going there almost as media. I’ll be an independent, outside eye looking at them as they do their job, and I’ll be trucking around in the desert with them. “ Hennebery, who has the rank of sergeant and studied painting at Emily Carr University, never served overseas during his time in the reserves but has plenty of friends who have. He said the tales of Reserve Forces – part-time volunteer soldiers who have regular civilian jobs – don’t always receive the same level of attention ◗Artist Page 4

A CLOSER LOOK: AGING CANADA GAMES POOL AND CENTRE NEEDS WORK

City faces a shopping list of options BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

To go with a patch-up job, or a major renovation? It’s a question facing many homeowners and now the City of New Westminster has to make a similar decision on the popular Canada Games Pool and Centennial Community Centre. The city has received a report examining options for the Canada Games Pool and Centennial Community Centre with the most costly proposal estimated at $55 million. Cannon Design investigated possibilities for renewing the facilities and presented council with a series of options that ranged from $22 to $55 million in 2010 dollars. ◆ Option 0: Minimal fix and upgrade of building systems to extend the building’s life for five to 10 years. ◆ Option 1: Retrofit existing buildings without adding new gross building space or addressing any of the expansion issues defined in the building program. ◆ Option 2: Retrofit existing buildings and add a new 22,500 square foot lobby/fitness building that will provide a link between the two existing buildings. This option, which would also see the addition of a new 20,500 square foot leisure pool and support space, would be done in two distinct phases. ◆ Option 3: Demolish and replace existing buildings with

new facilities. The new complex would be about 113,574 square feet, which represents about 42,780 square feet of new and additional area. This option would include a new 10-lane, 52-metre pool, a separate leisure pool, a 20,000 square foot fitness centre, new change rooms, multipurpose rooms, food concession and various support spaces. Cannon Design recommended that, in the absence of any budget restrictions, Option 3 be built on the sports field/recycling depot site. The sport field would be built on the old pool site and the recycling centre would be relocated elsewhere. “The remainder of the site would be dedicated for parking,” stated the consultant’s report. “This option represents the best value for investment, the greatest ability to meet future increased demand and the best siting of the building.” Canada Games Pool was built in 1972, while Centennial Community Centre was constructed in 1967. Coun. Bill Harper said the presentation at council’s Nov. 22 working session provided a very detailed analysis of the condition of the existing pool and the kind of costs the city would incur if it did an extensive renovation or replacement of the facilities. “In my view it is quite along way off,” he said. “It is a huge cost.” Council received the staff report for information, and will

The city faces some tough decisions on how to deal with the aging facility. discuss the matter as part of the city’s long-range capital budget program. “The options put forward were multi-millions of dollars at this time,” said Coun. Betty McIntosh. “I do not see us going forward with a retrofit or a rebuild. It is something that is going to have to be a long-term goal.” McIntosh said the city doesn’t have to be providing all services that are offered in the community. She noted there are a number of fitness centres in the city and

several apartments have swimming pools. “There are private facilities coming on-stream that are meeting the needs of some new residents,” she said. “The city doesn’t have to meet the needs of everybody. We don’t have to be everything for everybody.” The 58-page consultant’s report included sections on demand analysis that considered issues such as population projections, age, ethnicity and health variables and trends, and par-

ticipation rates. It also includes a market analysis, site analysis, existing building analysis, development options, a financial analysis and recommendations. In terms of the facility’s current usage rates, the report notes that the facilities operate at capacity, especially during peak period demand. “The aquatic facility is overused during the 4 to 7 p.m. time slot, and the facility is remarkably busy during all times of the ◗Pool Page 10

Meetings set to explore United Blvd. plans BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Royal City residents will get a chance to get information and offer input into the proposed United Boulevard extension at two upcoming meetings. The McBride-Sapperton Residents’ Association is hosting a meeting about the United Boulevard extension proposal and its impact on the livability of the Sapperton Neighbourhood. The residents’ association’s meeting is being held on Wednesday, Dec. 1 (tonight) at 7 p.m. at the Sapperton Pensioners Hall. TransLink held an open house about the proposed United Boulevard extension at the Justice Institute of B.C. on Nov. 18. The project is proposed to deal

with congestion and safety issues at Braid and Brunette, multiple rail/road crossings, limited access to the Braid industrial area, a single lane Bailey Bridge, and poor pedestrian and bicycle facilities. Many residents expressed concern about the impacts that the project would have on the Sapperton neighbourhood. “That’s an understatement,” said Geoff Pinkerton, president of the McBrideSapperton Residents’ Association. “There’s been quite a buzz about it. There’s been a lot of anger that the meeting that happened was not well advertised by TransLink.” Sapperton residents are invited to attend the Dec. 1 residents’ association meeting, which will give the association’s executive input that it needs to take a position on the issue.

Following TransLink’s meeting, New Westminster city council approved recommendations to TransLink regarding the United Boulevard extension. The city has asked TransLink to ensure that all further public consultation on the project reference only Option A (the original T-intersection configuration at Brunette Avenue) and not Options B, C or D (that would impact some homes in the area). The city is also asked TransLink to provide technical information on traffic impacts, noise and sightlines, to do further public consultation in a presentation format in a suitable venue, to have all city staff approve all materials presented at the open house and to remove the wall that’s shown drawings for Option A and replace the wall with appropriate landscaping.

Some city officials have expressed concern about some of the information presented on display boards at the open house, including images that were too small, mislabeled or had the wrong information. One TransLink official used a marker to draw in the correct changes partway through the open house. TransLink will hold another public meeting about the United Boulevard extension on Tuesday, Dec. 7 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Justice Institute of B.C. A TransLink spokesperson said the meeting will include a presentation so everyone gets the same information, and will correct any deficits with the materials that were presented at the recent meeting in New Westminster. www.twitter.com/TheresaMcManus

that those of full-time members of the Armed Forces do. “It’s usually very focused on the regular forces, which is obviously important, but 40 per cent of our tours and peacekeeping missions are augmented by citizen soldiers. They’re truck drivers, they work for B.C. Transit, they’re policemen and firemen – these are people who literally have to walk away from their jobs and families to go over there and volunteer,” said Hennebery. “They’re working on the front lines with regular force soldiers on patrols or as part of the omelet (the nickname for the OMLT, the Operational Mentoring and Liaison Team), which is the group in charge of training the Afghans. They’re sprinkled all over, so it is really kind of an interesting story and no one has really documented it. The goal is not to glorify war but instead capture the spirit and intent of the volunteer soldiers.” He said that while many soldiers bring back plenty of posed or hastily snapped photos, they often don’t capture the essence of the experience. It’s hard to get a good shot when you’re busy doing your job, be it sweeping for landmines, building schools and roads, liaising with local communities or battling the Taliban. “That is the whole genesis of this pro-

ject. I’ll be doing lots of sketches and lots of water colours as preliminary pieces. We’ll document the stories and from that, when I get back home, I’ll have all of this content which I’ll then use to finish the project. My pieces are quite allegorical, they’re very story-driven.” He said that he also expects to see some familiar faces when he gets there. “Over 70 people have already gone from our tiny regiment, which is significant,” he said. The Royal Westminster Regiment also has one who didn’t return, Master Cpl. Colin Bason, who was killed instantly when a vehicle he was riding in was destroyed by a roadside bomb in 2007. Hennebery admitted his family isn’t exactly thrilled with the whole idea. “I have my family going ‘Well, OK, it’s a noble idea, it’s great, we support you, but really?’ The thing is, I was a soldier for 22 years, and my wife kind of takes it in stride. Plus I’m not going to be there very long, I’ll only be there for a couple of weeks.” While the Armed Forces is providing the access, it is up to Hennebery to come up with the funds.

Charter: Focus is on children’s lives ◗ continued from page 1

document’s goal is to raise awareness about the need to create healthy, inclusive, safe and supportive environments for children so they can participate in all aspects of community life and reach their full potential. The early childhood development committee is asking city council and the school board to endorse the Children’s Charter, and will then ask other organizations for their support. While some of the items in the charter are beyond the city’s jurisdiction, the staff report said there are a number of areas the city can tackle or influence, including: providing access to quality child care and early childhood development opportunities; providing a range of housing options that are suitable and appropriate for families; creating accessible, inclusive and safe neighbourhoods; and maintaining a healthy, natural and sustainable envi-

ronment. “It speaks to a lot of the values behind some of the actions we are doing,” said Cote, who chairs the city’s community and social issues committee. Although the charter doesn’t require the city to undertake any specific actions, Cote hopes the city will use it as a reference point when considering issues such as child care, development and child-friendly park designs. The staff report stated that creating a more children, youth and family friendly city will result in a number of benefits, including: supporting healthy child development and improved child outcomes such as school readiness and success; contributing to a vibrant, diverse and intergenerational neighbourhood; facilitating healthy school enrolment (which will guard against school closures); and retaining and attracting skilled professionals. www.twitter.com/TheresaMcManus

half of the 62 recommendations in the 2006 report. The government contends that is not accurate – in fact, it says that work is underway on most of them. But Hughes agrees that things just aren’t moving fast enough. There’s lots of excuses given: staff changeovers, bureaucratic systems that are rigid, front-line staff who are confused about their roles. As well, we suspect, people are just overworked and the

department understaffed. But whether the problems are in political leadership, or lack thereof, pushback in bureaucracy, staff changeover or a failure to simply follow through – there is simply no adequate excuse for failing to complete this project. Children depend upon us and the government for protection. They don’t get to vote out the government that has failed them. It’s time to fix this.

The ins and outs of the Liberal race IN THE HOUSE KEITH BALDREY

W

hen it comes to analyzing the B.C. Liberal leadership race, it’s important to remember a few key points. First, the party is a coalition of political interests. There are conservatives and liberals, and the membership includes people who are active in both federal parties. Second, this is not a general election. Choosing the next leader is solely in the hands of the people who belong to the B.C. Liberal party, not the general public. And third, the voting method the party is using includes a preferential ballot, which means a successful candidate who doesn’t win on the first ballot needs significant support from the supporters of other candidates who are dropped from the balloting. Let’s apply these factors to the various candidates to gauge their strengths and weaknesses. George Abbott and, if she runs, Christy Clark are the powerhouse liberal candidates. Clark, in particular, is viewed as being strongly tied to the federal Liberal party, and this will likely hurt her more than Abbott when it comes to courting party members who are strong backers of the federal Conservatives. Abbott also shrewdly recruited

three notable Conservative political operatives to help run his campaign, and that should give him a good chance to reach across the fence and woo support from non-liberals. Kevin Falcon, Rich Coleman and Mike de Jong are on the conservative side of the party, which means they are fighting for a lot of the same voters. Falcon will likely appeal the most to those who are strongly conservative, but he may find it the most difficult to attract many liberal voters. So who are members of the B.C. Liberal Party? A clue to the makeup of members these days may be the high level endorsement they gave Gordon Campbell’s leadership – an 84 per cent approval rating – before he announced he was stepping down. Given that Campbell’s approval rating in the last Mustel poll was just 32 per cent, this suggests members of the B.C. Liberal Party are far more forgiving towards Campbell and his policies than the general public. That suggests that simply running “against” Campbell may not necessarily be the best strategy. Of course, a key to winning the leadership lies in signing up new members across the province. De Jong, who has strong ties to the Indo-Canadian community, has a distinct advantage on this front, but that advantage is seriously diluted under the proposed change to make all ridings equal when it came to voting. The proposed voting method (which is by no means guaranteed to get the required two-

Dear Editor:

As one of the businesses impacted by the Nov. 18 fire at 55 Eighth St. (Downtown fire ‘suspicious,’ The Record, Nov. 24), we’d like to thank two key members of our community: the New Westminster Fire and Rescue Service and our next-door neighbour. To John Hatch, division chief of public safety and fire prevention, and the rest of the New Westminster Fire and Rescue Service team: Thank you so much for your efficient, friendly and professional response to the fire at 55 Eighth St. It was a shocking, whirlwind of a day for us, and we are so grateful to have had such a patient, supportive fire team there to help us out and answer our questions. Thanks for your service to our community. And to Jason Walters, co-owner of the Metro Hall and neighbour at 759 Carnarvon St.: Thank you so much for your very thoughtful and timely support, good coffee for our whole staff team and general outstanding neighbourliness.

Drunk driving laws raise concern Dear Editor:

The government recently introduced legislation to change the penalties for drinking and driving, and I find it problematic. I don’t wish to suggest in any way that I condone excessive drinking and driving, but the new legislation will create a class of people (drivers) with a criminal record – and they may not be any more likely to cause accidents than other drivers on the road. If the government was trying to create legislation that fines and give drivers a criminal record with a minimal amount a alcohol in their system, then the new legislation is an overwhelming success. If the government is trying to fine and keep impaired drivers with reduced reaction times off the road, then the new legislation is an absolute abysmal failure.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR What about other drivers? ◗ continued from page 6

While the government recently introduced laws against mobile phone use while driving, it took them forever to do it, and it still allows hands-free usage, which has been shown to be as dangerous in reduced reaction times as someone who has had several drinks. If they were serious about impaired driving, then hands-free cellphone usage would be banned as well. While I have no supporting statistics to back it up, it has been said that B.C. bud and other assorted illegal drugs are our largest business. I suspect strongly that there are a lot of people driving under the influence of various illegal drugs that I am sure reduce reaction times while they are driving. A couple of weeks after the new legislation was introduced, there was an article in the paper about how police had stepped up enforcement in this area and had about 200 prosecutions in a period of time I don’t remember. Clearly an unintended consequence of this article was that it pointed out how pathetic their efforts are in this area – and how truly inadequate their enforcement in this area really is. There are a lot of drivers who are on prescription drugs who are quite likely to have reduced reaction times. This may include many drivers and seniors who are taking multiple drug dosages, some of which may negatively interact with each other. Then there is just plain old age for reducing reaction times. There was an article on page 6 of the Sun on June 17, 2010 about the changes in reaction times and adjusting to conditions as we grow older. The article doesn’t even include any discussion about

a large portion of the older population that have had operations, such as knees and hips etc., that surely must affect their reaction times. There is a whole class of drivers who apply makeup, shave, drink coffee, fumble around finding cigarettes and lighting them, and many other distractions that that impair their ability to drive. There are also people who have night vision problems. Needless to say there are drivers who would qualify for more than one minor impairment of the above conditions. So somebody has a couple of drinks and is at .05 and all of a sudden their behavior is criminal – and yet there would many other drivers on the road who are as likely or more likely to have an accident, and yet they aren’t criminals at all. They could be pulled over, and while the police officer is administering the tests etc. be passed by someone talking on their hands-free phone who is more impaired even if they haven’t had anything alcoholic to drink. That clearly is unfair. We still have a knee-jerk reaction to people and alcohol that is immature – and, that being said, some people still handle it immaturely. That still isn’t sufficient cause to create and enforce (enforcement is another issue completely) legislation that is so blatantly unbalanced in relation to lawfulness and consequences. If somebody drinks a lot and drives, they should pay a price, but the new legislation isn’t very good at dealing with a whole host of drivers who are more likely to cause an accident than someone who has had a few drinks, and for that reason it is legislation that fails miserably. Rick Fisher, Burnaby

Liberals: Does anyone have an edge? ◗ continued from page 6

-thirds support to pass at a rules convention) also penalizes an “outsider” like Clark, who has not been active in the party for more than five years. While she no doubt still has ties with a lot of members, her rivals have had more time to cement their own relations with the people who will be voting. The voting proposal is also based on a preferential ballot, so voters will rank the candidates. As I understand it, if there is no clear winner on the first ballot, the bottom-ranked candidate (and maybe more) is dropped and those who voted for that candidate will have their second-choice votes redistributed among the surviving candidates. Then another candidate is dropped, and the sec-

ond-choice votes of that candidate are redistributed, and so on until a winner emerges. So a candidate who can command a lot of second-choice support has a distinct advantage. Candidates who pointedly shun one side of the coalition in favour of wooing support from the other side risk losing that secondchoice support. This may favour someone like Abbott, whose low-key, likeable demeanour may translate into wider support among those not willing to make him their first choice. It may also penalize someone like Falcon, whose aggressive, take-no-prisoners approach may cost him valuable second-choice support. Now, having said all this, it’s important to remember another key factor that will help ultimately

determine the outcome. Members will keep an eye on polls that show which of the candidates has the strongest support among the general public. And this is where Clark may hold the edge. The so-called “freeenterprise coalition” has historically always been able to choose someone who can keep the party in power. Unlike the NDP, which tears itself apart with ideological debates over policies and issues, the coalition ranks having power as its chief reason for existence. It has lost only three times in almost 60 years. Party members will keep that stat in mind when they vote on Feb. 26, and that could trump all other considerations.

Cadets holding food drive this week BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Royal Canadian Sea Cadets Corps Fraser is once again raising funds and food for the New Westminster Food Bank. The sea cadets will be collecting non-perishable food and financial donations for the food bank on Dec. 2 and 4 as part of their food drive. Cadets will be dropping off paper bags to some Royal City residences and then returning a couple days later to collect donations left in the

bags. “We are going to be dropping bags off this Thursday. We are going to be picking them up on Saturday evening,” said Sub-Lieut. Bryan Watson. “Last year we brought in around 2,000 pounds of food with it. We are really excited to do it again.” All of the food that’s collected will support the New Westminster food bank. In an effort to raise funds, Fraser is inviting businesses and individuals to make monetary donations to the cause. A focus of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadet

program is to foster citizenship in the youth of Canada. Royal Canadian Sea Cadets Corps Fraser has served New Westminster since 1942. Biathlon, sailing, music, seamanship, summer employment, international exchanges and volunteering are among the activities that the cadets participate in. Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Fraser is accepting cheques on behalf of the food bank, which can be made out to New Westminster Food Bank, c/o RCSCC Fraser, 555 Derwent Way, Delta, V3M 6S9.

Canadians, many of whom are jobless or not earning enough to make ends meet. According to the report, food bank usage is up five per cent in British Columbia from 2008, with seniors comprising 6.2 per cent of those helped and children almost 30 per cent, while the Greater Vancouver Food Bank said it has seen a 10 per cent drop in food donations and a 10 per-cent increase in demand. The child poverty rate in British Columbia has been the highest in the country for the sixth year in a row. None of this comes as news to

Mona Forsyth, coordinator of the New Westminster Food Bank and this year’s Citizen of the Year. “It’s just terrible,” said Forsyth. “I get at least 40 new people a week. And now of course you have the cold weather and a lot of these people don’t have warm places to stay. It just breaks my heart, and I think about it all the time.” She said the food bank, located at 1111 Sixth St., is always looking for donations and is open to receive them every day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Check out www.foodbank.bc.ca for more information.

Get ready for the annual Christmas Parade Don’t forget to find the kids’ warmest gloves and hats and be prepared for this year’s Hyack Christmas Parade of Lights. The parade kicks off this Saturday, Dec. 4. It starts at 4 p.m. culminating with a tree lighting ceremony just before 6 p.m. The 24th version of the parade is scheduled to include approximately 65 floats and entries, including bands and community groups such as the Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, the Salvation Army and several multicultural societies. From bands playing festive music to floats featuring reindeer, elves, candy canes and toys, the parade is a highlight of the Royal City holiday season, with its swirl of sound, colour and lights. For Rick Molstad, the parade’s director, there’s no doubt what the biggest challenge is each year. “It’s the weather,” he said. “In the summer, when

you have a parade, you can predict rain or sun but in the winter, you could get rain, sun, snow, cold, everything.” The snow and cold posed a problem two years ago when some horses that were scheduled to be a part of the parade didn’t take well to the white stuff. The parade will take just a little more than an

hour, with the tree lighting at Hyack Square being the final event. Molstad said there will be a Dickens-style quartet singing Christmas carols at Hyack Square and hot beverages available to keep everybody warm. Also in the planning stages is a pre-parade event, with Molstad and 60-plus volunteers starting to shut

down Columbia Street just before 2 p.m. This year’s honorary parade marshal is former New Westminster Salmonbellie star Wayne Goss, who will be riding in a car and waving to the crowds. The Hyack Festival Association is the key sponsor/organizer of the parade and works with the

City of New Westminster and the Downtown New Westminster Business Society to help put together this holiday tradition. Organizers are encouraging people who are coming down to the parade to bring a non-perishable food item or an unwrapped gift or clothing item to the Hyack Square to be distributed to the needy.

day, seven days per week,” said the report. “Much of the peak demand is swim clubs and swimming lessons which are difficult to shift to offpeak shoulder periods. Adding a second leisurefocused body can shift some of the younger swimmers away from the main tank as well as creating play opportunities.” The report notes that the fitness centre operates near capacity for much of the day and it’s not uncommon to see more than 120 users working through the area and waiting to use equipment The report notes that both of the existing facilities are nonconforming to current building code requirements in many areas, including having no sprinkler protection and being made of combustible construction. According to the report, the estimated cost of building a new aquatic and community centre would be $38 million, with an additional $3 million in site costs and design and construction allowances increasing the cost to almost $47 million. When “soft costs” such as fees, allowances and overheads and taxes are factored in, the projected cost is $54.3 million. In the spring, council received a staff report stating that both buildings are more than 35 years old and approaching the stage where many building systems have passed their expected service life. Growth in the community is also placing additional pressures on the operations of these facilities. The city’s 2010 capital budget included $175,000 for a feasibility study about the facility. The feasibility study was intended to make recommendations about refurbishment versus replacement of the Canada Games Pool, and to consider options for inclusion of the adjacent Centennial Community Centre.

“The Canada Games Pool and the Centennial Community Centre are extensively used and highly valued facilities in the community,” said a Nov. 22 staff report to council. “The feasibility study shows that the facilities will need to (be) renewed or replaced in order to continue to serve the current

Marty Sohl/SPECIAL TO THE RECORD

Even tenor: Lance Ryan as Bacchus in Ariadne auf Naxos. The tenor, a former Douglas College student who’s now a rising star in Europe, is offering a benefit concert for Douglas College on Dec. 13 and a master class for students on Dec. 14.

Tenor offers benefit concert

Former Douglas College student returns to raise money for student award

Twenty years ago, Lance Ryan was a guitar student in the music program at Douglas College before heading off to UBC to earn a bachelor of music degree in classical guitar. These days, Ryan is one of Europe’s fastest-rising dramatic tenor stars. Next month, as a way of giving back to his alma mater, Ryan will be performing a benefit concert for Douglas College. On Dec. 13, Ryan will perform romantic art songs and arias by Wagner, Mahler, Strauss and Beethoven in the Laura C.

Muir Performing Arts Theatre at the New Westminster campus. Money raised from the concert will help to establish the Lance Ryan Vocal Achievement Award, to be given annually to an outstanding singer at the end of the second year of the Douglas College university transfer program in music. Ryan will be joined on stage by his wife, soprano Viviana Maria di Carlo, and pianist David Boothroyd. On Dec. 14, he’ll also lead a voice master class in the theatre from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., where he’ll share his expertise with college music students. Admission is free, and the master class will be open to the public. Ryan has sung leading roles at major opera houses in Rome, Florence, Vienna,

London, Frankfurt, Dresden and Valencia, among others. In February, he made his New York Metropolitan Opera debut in a broadcast performance of Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos. Last summer, he made his debut at the Wagner Festival in Bayreuth. For more about Ryan, check out his website at www.lanceryan.com. Catch him in concert on Monday, Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in the theatre at 700 Royal Ave. Tickets are available for $50 for patrons, $30 for regular adult admission, or $15 for students and seniors. Buy through the Massey ticket centre at 604-521-5050 or www.masseytheatre.com, or at Sikora’s Classical Records, 432 West Hastings St. in Vancouver.

Lively City: NWSS bandathon brings in more than $22,000 ◗ continued from page 11

School success

Remember the Fan of the Bandathon? The New Westminster Secondary School music department held its first bandathon fundraiser on Saturday, Sept. 25, with students collecting pledges in support of a 12-hour marathon of music. The fundraiser raked in a whopping $22,185.72 for the music department and its students. It was designed to help fulfil some “wish list” items for the school – including ergonomic musicians’ chairs, a new sound system and an electronic keyboard – and it involved support from students, teachers, families, friends and businesses and community members at large. In fact, bandathon organizers note in an e-mail to The Record that one woman showed up at the music department with a cheque for $500 – she and her husband were searching for a charity to give money to, read an article about the bandathon in the paper and decided to help out because they love youth and music. As part of the fundraiser, the bandathon organizers opted to support the Purpose Society in its work with youth – organizers presented a cheque to Purpose on Monday, Nov. 15 in the amount of $2,185.72. Kudos to everyone involved in this wonderful fundraiser.

Choir turns 30

You can help a New Westminster choir celebrate its 30th anniversary. The Amabilis Singers are celebrating 30 years of music-making with a gala Christmas concert on Saturday, Dec. 11.

The choir, under the direction of Ramona Luengen, will welcome back alumni and former conductors Diane Loomer, Anne Unger and Carrie Taylor for a festive evening that will include the premiere of a newly commissioned work by Luengen. The concert is at New West Christian Reformed Church, 8255 13th Ave. in Burnaby. Tickets will be $20, or free for children under 12. Reserve by calling 604-4336538. A warning – tickets are selling extremely quickly, and the concert may soon end up being sold out, but a wait-list will be available. See the website at www. AmabilisSingers.org for more. (I must insert a disclaimer here for those who don’t already know: Yes, I sing with Amabilis. But don’t take that to mean I’m just biased. It really will be a fabulous concert!)

Carols and bells

Catch the spirit of the season with the popular Carols and Bells concert at Queens Avenue United Church. Five English handbell choirs featuring performers of all ages – from Burnaby, New Westminster, Langley and Chilliwack – will ring arrangements of Christmas songs and carols. In between performances, the audience will have a chance to sing favourite Christmas carols. Rob Hopkins is the concert MC. It’s happening Sunday, Dec. 12 at 7 p.m. at the church, 529 Queens Ave. Tickets are available at the door: $20 regular, $15 for students and seniors, or $10 for children.

Call 604-522-1606 for more information.

Picasso exhibit

If you’re looking for a Christmas gift for the art lover on your list, the Arts Council of New Westminster can help. The arts council is currently selling tickets for an upcoming bus trip to the special Picasso exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum. The trip is set for Jan. 12 and costs $75 per person, with payment to be received no later than Jan. 5. The trip leaves the arts council office in Queen’s Park at 8:30 a.m. and returns at 8:30 p.m. The exhibition, for those who aren’t already familiar with it, offers a once-ina-lifetime opportunity to see an extensive collection of Pablo Picasso’s artwork from the Musée National Picasso de Paris. The museum, housed in a converted mansion, is currently undergoing renovations, so its collection is touring the globe. More than 150 works are included in the exhibition, drawing from nearly every period throughout Picasso’s long career. You’ll be able to see such iconic paintings as La Celestina, from his Blue Period, plus the Cubist work Man with a Guitar and a 1970 self-portrait, The Matador. A valid passport is needed. Call the arts council at 604-525-3244 or check out its website at www. artscouncilnewwest.org. Do you have an item for Lively City?

Stressed? Take a deep breath HEALTHWISE

DR. DAVIDICUS WONG

W

e all have our secret selves – the parts of ourselves we keep concealed from the rest of the world. But there are parts of yourself of which even you are unaware. You are more than you appear to be. You are a unique complex of conflicting thoughts, emotions and sensations, some of it on the surface, much of it hidden even from your own awareness. Deeper still lies a part of yourself that can make sense of it all, where meaning, purpose and peace reside. But to access that deeper self, you must first attend to your present, how you feel at this moment. In my last column, I introduced my approach to meditation with seven questions. So in answer to my first question, “What

do I feel?”, feel your breath. Attending to the simple act of breathing, you can attain just enough distance to look clearly at your present state – the feelings you are experiencing at this moment. Normally, you breathe without thinking about it, but when you shift your consciousness to the effortless flow of air through your nose and into your lungs and the natural flow from your lungs through your nose, you will find that you can control not only the rhythm of your breaths but the pace of your thoughts. Attending first to your breath, to the refreshing fullness of a slow, deep breath and to the full-bodied release as you exhale, you can feel a rise in your positive energy while you release your tensions. Mindful breathing can serve as a time-out when the pace of the day’s activities, your own thoughts or your present feelings seem overwhelming. The pauses between breathing in, breathing out and breathing in again can represent the still point – the centre where you can take a step back and see

yourself – your feelings, thoughts and actions at this moment. What are you feeling? What emotions are controlling you? Is it anger? Does it come from frustrations where reality doesn’t live up to your expectations? Is it from the behaviour of others or circumstances over which you have no control? What are the thoughts that underlie your anger? Is there another way of thinking about the situation? Could you be reacting to the present with the feelings of the past? Sometimes current circumstances and the words and actions of others can trigger anger and resentment from our past. Our reactions can be heavily influenced by the back story of our past. We can fall into old patterns of reacting. Can you recognize any pattern to your reactions? Are you anxious? Does this arise from feeling unprepared or just feeling rushed? We can’t control everything in life, but there are many things we can. We sometimes just forget we

$2

have a choice. Where do your choices lie? Are you taking on too much? Are you able to say no when someone asks you to do something you just can’t fit into your day? Are you able to ask for help? At any given time, we need just the right amount of challenge to feel engaged. If you don’t have enough challenge in your day, you’re bored. When the challenge exceeds your resources, you’re stressed. Negative, catastrophic thinking can raise feelings of anxiety. Our worried thoughts can make our world seem too much for us to handle. By taking a time out to feel your breath, you can bring down your anxiety a notch and reflect on your thoughts. As you control your breath, you can learn to control your thoughts, replacing statements that are self-defeating with the self-affirming. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a physician at PrimeCare Medical. His Healthwise column appears regularly in this paper and his internet radio show, Positive Potential Medicine, can be heard on pwrnradio.com.

Eat your vegetables ON COOKING

T

CHEF DEZ

he food guide published by the Canadian government recommends that we, as adults, should be eating an average of seven to 10 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. Children should be eating four to eight servings, depending on their age. This is an ongoing challenge for some people, so to assist you I have gathered some helpful ways to fulfill your intake requirements for healthy eating. The Canada Food Guide (available at www.hc-sc.gc. ca – follow the Canada’s Food Guide link at the right-hand side, or call 1800-622-6232) describes a single serving of fruit or vegetables as one-half cup of fresh, frozen or canned or one-half cup of 100 per cent juice. One cup of raw leafy vegetables or salads counts as a single serving, as does a single piece of fruit.

The first and most important thing is to ensure that you are buying fruits and vegetables in the first place. Chances are if you don’t have them available at your fingertips, you will miss opportunities to introduce them into your diet. One helpful tip is to buy the recommended serving amounts for each member of your family for number of days you are shopping for. For example, if you are a family of four and shopping to get you through the next three days, you would need to buy a total of 84 servings of fruit and vegetables combined, based on an average of seven servings each. Purchase these before proceeding to the other aisles, and build your meals based on these initial produce selections. An easy way to incorporate fresh spinach with every meal is to serve every piece of chicken or fish on a bed of sautéed spinach leaves. Simply heat a pan over medium heat with a very small amount of olive oil, add a large handful of clean, fresh spinach leaves and season with salt and pepper. They will cook and wilt very quickly as you toss with tongs. Plate and serve immediately.

If sandwiches are a meal item that you have regularly, then make sure you always have fresh lettuce, tomato and onions on hand. A Mediterranean flair can also be added to your sandwiches by including roasted bell peppers or a spread of roasted garlic. Fruit can become an easily accessible snack item by always having containers of washed berries and grapes in your refrigerator. Try not to pre-wash too much ahead of time, however, as they tend to deteriorate faster after washing. Vegetable skewers on the grill are another low-fat way to get your daily servings. Although barbecuing during the cold weather is not as popular as the spring and summer months, it does continue to offer lowfat cooking if you can make your grill easily accessible. Buy something completely new to your family at least once per month. The Internet and libraries are filled with an abundance of information on preparing and serving almost any ingredient. Happy cooking! Visit Chef Dez at www. chefdez.com. Send your food/ cooking questions to dez@ chefdez.com.

Moving Forward for Women & Children Raise $15,625 for Charity

Kathy MacKerricher (left) and Lorna Stewart (right) present a cheque for $7,812 to Lorrie Wasyliw of Monarch House.

Local businesswoman Lorna Stewart and Kathy MacKerricher presented cheques totaling $7,812.50 each to Monarch Place and Cassie & Friends. The money represents the proceeds from their latest fundraising venture an evening of food, fashion, a Steel Band, and dancing that took place last month at La Rustica Restaurant. “It’s a huge gift - hugely wonderful,” is how Monarch Place’s Lorrie Wasyliw described the rug-sized presentation cheque she received. Wasyliw described Monarch Place as “a home, not a facility” for women and their children escaping domestic violence. Cassie & Friends is a fundraising group organized by the parents of five-yearold Cassie Porte, who was diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis at 18 months.

Young Rebel to Junior team camp BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Burnaby’s Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was one of 39 players invited to Canada’s national junior hockey team selection camp. The 17-year-old Red Deer Rebels centre is the youngest forward selected and one of just four draft eligible skaters on the camp roster. The four-day camp will take place at the MasterCard Centre in Toronto from Dec. 12 to 15. Three returning junior players –

Jared Cowen of Spokane, Oshawa’s Calvin de Haan and Ryan Ellis of Windsor – helped Canada win a silver medal at last year’s world junior championships. In addition, 34 of the invited players named to the camp were taken in the last two NHL drafts, including 18 first-round selections and four second-round picks. The players will take part in two intrasquad games on Dec. 12 and 13. They will then face the Canadian university national team on Dec. 14. The final 22-man roster will be

named at the conclusion of the camp on Dec. 15. A 17-year-old has not been selected to the junior national team since Sidney Crosby was picked in 2004. Since then, Canada has won five of six world junior titles, including five consecutive gold medals from 2005 to 2009. Canada lost last year’s gold by a score of 6-5 in overtime to the United States. This year’s world junior tournament will be held in Buffalo, New York.

Field Selects the Starz in U.S.

◗ HOCKEY

Local skaters score big in weekend ties Ryan Nugent-Hopkins helped the Red Deer Rebels move into first place in the Western Hockey League’s Central division last week. The No. 1-rated skater in the NHL Central Scouting’s fall rankings scored a goal in the shootout in a 3-2 win over the Vancouver Giants on Nov. 27. A day earlier, the second-year Burnaby centre was also a third star in Red Deer’s 4-3 win over the Calgary Hitmen.

Bear on a tear

Former Burnaby Winter Club captain Kevin Sundher had a big game for the major junior Chilliwack Bruins. Sundher scored two goals and added two assists in Chilliwack’s 7-2 win over the U.S. division-leading Portland Winterhawks. Sundher’s first goal of the game and eighth of the season stood up as the game-winner.

Captains lead on

Burnaby natives Joey LaLeggia and Steven Iacobellis helped the Penticton Vees with a 7-5

victory over the Coquitlam Express on Saturday. The former Northwest Giants captains each earned a goal and assist. LaLeggia, the B.C. Hockey League’s top defenseman scorer, opened the game scoring from Iacobellis early in the first period. He later helped tie the game, assisting on Breandan O’Donnell’s power play goal. Iacobellis scored the game-winner late in the third, with his third goal of the season. LaLeggia is the team’s point leader with 13 goals and 25 assists.

Third shutout

Burnaby Winter Club product Mark Dekanich was the Milwaukee Admirals second star in a 1-0 shutout win over the Texas Stars. Deckanich kicked out 29 shots in the win for his third shutout this season. The 24-year-old former junior A Coquitlam Express player is currently fourth among AHL goalies with a 1.63 save average and a 0.943 save percentage

His children Christopher, Patrick, Stephen (Joan Johnson), Joseph, Marie (Luke Balogh) Seymour. Always 'Diddy' to Darryl (Duke) Wolf, Michael Seymour, Shannon Wolf, Mary Seymour, Kim Fitwailter and six great grandchildren. Harry had many talents, there was nothing he couldn’t take on. He loved music, traveling and Coronation Street. Always a advocate for a properly made cup of tea and a kind heart for the less fortunate. Harry’s sense of humor and love of life was unraveling among those knew him. He worked tirelessly up until a week ago as Canada’s oldest active Bailiff. Harry never grew old just his body did. Special thanks by Carol, Randy, Richard, Nell and all his loyal friends. We will have celebration of Harry’s life in the spring.

She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Merle (Ernie) Hirsekorn, granddaughter Colleen (Landon) Helfrich, grandson William Peterson, sister-in-law Joan Pritchard and numerous nieces and nephews. The family wishes to thank Dr. Jan Holan and the ECU nursing staff at Delta View Habilitation Centre not only for our mother – but also for us over the recent difficult days. Cremation, no service by request. In lieu of flowers donations to Delta View Habilitation Centre ECU Unit or to The Alzheimer’s Society. Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints upon the snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain and I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush, I am that swift uplifting rush, Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft star that shines at night. Do not stand by my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.
