Out of Egypt City man escapes as civil unrest hits BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Claude Maillé finally embarked on a trip-of-a-lifetime to Egypt – only to be caught up in civil unrest. ThelongtimeNewWestminster resident left for Egypt on Jan. 24 and returned Feb. 1. His trip was cut short because of political unrest in the Middle Eastern nation. “When I was in Cairo, in the terminal with no food and no sleep, I was happy to get out of there,” he said. “At the airport, there are all these soldiers with AK47s. I was happy to go home because I could tell everything was going to escalate. We were getting reports from other travelers and our group leader.” Anti-government protests started in Egypt on Jan. 25. Maillé witnessed protests wherever he went, including Cairo, Alexandria and Aswan. “We joined the Nile cruise there (Aswan) so we were insolated,” he said. “Our group leader was on top of it. It was supposed

Blue ribbon rodent show hits city Ratstravaganza aims to change misconceptions about domestic rats BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Once you go rat, you’ll never go back. It’s a saying among fans of domestic rats and something local residents will be able to decide for themselves at Ratstravaganza, the eighth annual B.C. Pet Rat Show that will take place in New Westminster on Saturday, Feb. 12. Everyone is welcome to attend Ratstravaganza, including rat lover and people who are curious about the critters. “For the most part it is people who have them and people who are interested in having them,” said Royal City resident Lizzy O Sullivan, who is organizing the show. “A lot of times it is families who are interested in them.” In the standard classes, rats are judged on qualities such as their appearance and temperament. They can also compete in the pet classes, which includes costume contests and rat races. “That has a lot more audience appeal,” O Sullivan said of the pet classes. “In Canada we put more emphasis on the pet classes.” Pet class categories include most talented, most unusual, longest tail, squishiest and kissiest. “These are pretty much all audience choice. We vote by audience clapping,” O Sullivan said. “Our pet shows start at 1 p.m. That is when we have our biggest show of people.” One of the goals of Ratstravaganza and other pet rat shows is to raise the profile of rats as pets and destroy some of the myths surrounding rats. “We have a long way to go in changing the public’s perception,” O Sullivan said. “People have this perception of filthy animals that carry the bubonic plague. That is

They clean themselves more frequently than a cat. They hate to be dirty.” According to O Sullivan, domestic rats are less likely to bite than other animals kept as pets, such as hamsters. “They have been bred for hundreds and hundreds of years, first for lab purposes,” she said. “They were initially bred to be as docile as possible.” The B.C. Pet Rat Show, whose past five shows have been in New Westminster, is part of the rat show circuit in the Pacific

Northwest that includes stops in Seattle, Portland and Boise. “We get a tremendous turnout,” O Sullivan said. “It depends a lot on how much publicity we get. I have been at shows where we have thousands of people file through.” The show, takes place at the Sapperton Pensioners Hall at 316 Keary St. Doors open at 11 a.m. and the show runs from 12 to 5 p.m., with pet classes starting around 1 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for chil-

dren and free for children under three years of age. The show is sponsored by RatsPacNW, a pet rat club that seeks to promote rats as pets through shows and educational events like Ratstravaganza. The event also includes the sale of various types of rat merchandise, baby rats that are available for adoption, a craft table for kids, and visits by Whiskers the giant rat mascot, animal rescue groups and Hero Rat, an organization that trains ◗Rats Page 5

or three of the passengers paid the money so they could board the plane destined for Germany. “The Germans had cots, chocolate bars and water ready for us,” Maillé said. “The Germans were superb.” Maillé, who retired about 10 years ago, said he’s wanted to visit Egypt for about 40 years. “I didn’t know there was going to be a revolution,” he said. “It was a very good trip. I would recommend this to everybody.”

Despite the political unrest that required him to cut his trip short, Maillé thoroughly enjoyed his time in Egypt. “It was very fulfilling,” he said. “I always wanted to see the pyramids and the sphinx. I was very impressed.” Maillé went to Egypt on his own, but travelled with a tour group. While the protests were nearby on various occasions, he never feared for his safety. “I don’t get scared. If I got scared, I wouldn’t travel,” he said. “I was aware of all the

other protests. Our leader was on top of things. He insulated us from the protests in Cairo and Alexandria. In Luxor, we had a lot of things to do, but we never got out because of safety.” Instead, the tourists remained on the ship that had taken them on cruise of the Nile River. Maillé highly recommends Egypt as a vacation destination – once the political climate stabilizes. “My group leader had a feeling he wouldn’t have a job for at least six months,” he said.

“That is their main industrytourism.” Maillé has travelled to places including Peru, Cuba, Thailand, India, Barbados and Haiti. He said Egypt was one of his best trips. “Everywhere I go, I seem to run into trouble, I think I am a jinx,” laughed the Sapperton resident. “When I was in Thailand there were huge demonstrations. I am usually ahead of them or just after them so I am pretty lucky.” Foreign Affairs and

International Trade Canada’s website states that the situation in Egypt is highly unpredictable, and some demonstrations have turned violent. “At this time, the government is urging Canadians to avoid travelling to Egypt due to demonstrations and protests, civil unrest, high levels of criminal activity and violence throughout the country, and the threat of terrorist attacks,” states the website. “The Government of Canada continues to strongly urge all Canadians to leave Egypt.”

Rats: Rodents given a bad rap ◗ continued from page 3

rats to sniff out landmines. Pet rats have been given a bad rap because people assume they’re the same as wild rats. “They have almost nothing in common with a wild rat. It’s been said they have as much in common as a poodle does with a wolf,” O Sullivan said. “It’s almost a different kind of animal. They have been domesticated for so long.” Colour, ears and behaviours are some of the traits that people would use to tell the difference between a domestic and a wild rat. Siamese, Burmese, mink and pearl are some of the colours of domestic rats. “There aren’t breeds of rats. They are just basic rats. They come in different colours, but they aren’t different breeds,” O Sullivan said. “There are dwarf rats that are smaller.” O Sullivan got her first pet rat as a teenager, when she volunteered to clean out the cages of rats used in the lab at her high school. She ended up bringing some of the rats home at the end of the school year. “I did take a break. I

went to university, I had babies,” she said. “My children, when they were about 10 or 11, decided they wanted a rat.” O Sullivan’s son got the rat from a friend, whose mother was a reporter at a community newspaper. The editor received a box, opened it and found a rat and a note that read, I smell a rat. “Apparently the editor opened the box, jumped back and shrieked,” she said. “The rat got loose and ran around the room. (The reporter) managed to catch the rat and brought it home to her kids. My son ended up getting that particular rat.” O Sullivan, who is in her 60s, said she always knew she’d get rats again. “I find they are like little dogs,” she said. “They are very affectionate, personable, interactive pets. They are a lot easier to manage than dogs.” O Sullivan’s rats don’t have free rein of her home, but they live comfortably. “They definitely live in cages,” she said. “They have very large, generous-sized cages. They have

their own room. I have a playground set up for them. It is a little fenced in area.” While some rat owners take their rats outdoors, O Sullivan keeps her rats inside for the most part. Because they cannot be vaccinated, she said they’re quite susceptible to airborne viruses and she doesn’t want to compromise their health. “They don’t go outside,” she said. “They definitely don’t run loose through my house.” O Sullivan said the biggest downfall of having domestic rats as pets is that they generally only live two to three years. “It’s horribly hard,” she said. “They are like little dogs. You get extremely attached to the. First they make you love them, then they die.” O Sullivan encourages people to drop by and check out Ratstravaganza as it may help them see rats from a new perspective. “Once you go rat, you never go back,” she said. “Very few people do once they discover rats.”

OUR VIEW

What drove Egyptians to stand firm and call for a new government was simply that they just couldn’t take anymore. The disparity between the haves and have-nots has reached such levels that fathers working seven days a week can’t support their families. Young people could see that the system was rigged and there was little hope that their generation would be able to escape the out-of-control patronage. Desperation drove this revolution, not the ideology of democracy.

Jordan’s King quickly announced reforms to Jordan’s government hoping that his citizens wouldn’t get any ideas. But there was clearly a lesson to be learned by Middle Eastern leaders or, for that matter, any leaders and politicians in the world. When people can share information globally, there’s a good chance they won’t accept a system where injustice, poverty and oppression rule. In fact, they will get mad as hell and just not take it anymore.

Anger over HST is subsiding IN THE HOUSE KEITH BALDREY

T

o almost no one’s surprise, the attempt to recall B.C. Liberal MLA Ida Chong ended in complete failure. But will that defeat discourage other recall efforts from even beginning? The massive defeat of recall proponents in Chong’s riding of Oak Bay-Gordon Head gives no cause for hope for those trying to launch recall campaigns against two other B.C. Liberal MLAs – Don McRae from Comox Valley and Terry Lake from KamloopsNorth Thompson. It’s not as though the attempt to recall Chong failed by a squeaker. It wasn’t even close. More than 15,000 people needed to sign the recall petition for it to succeed, and instead fewer than 9,000 people signed. In fact, it appears the recall effort stalled with a few weeks to go to gather signatures. The campaign’s own figures indicate fewer than 1,000 people signed the petition in the last few weeks, suggesting that rather than gaining steam, the petition experienced the precise opposite. Faced with rejection by the voters, the recall proponents and the Fight HST crowd have opted

to cling to delusional fantasies. They’ve been trying to pass off their failure as some sort of spectacular success. They offer the lame argument that without the recall campaign, the HST issue would have been ignored by the public. This is patently absurd, of course: the fact there is an upcoming referendum on the HST guarantees it will remain front and centre with the electorate. In fact, the recall campaign itself attracted scant media interest. If the public was engaged with the HST issue these past few weeks, it wasn’t because of the recall efforts in Oak BayGordon Head. Recall organizers have offered up all kinds of excuses for why they did so poorly. It rained too much during the recall campaign. There were too many apartment buildings they couldn’t gain access to. The Christmas holidays got in the way. There were too many civil servants living in the riding. And too many people had moved out of the riding. But after brushing aside all these whiny complaints, a central truth emerged: there simply wasn’t anywhere near the kind of anger among the citizens of Oak Bay that is required to recall their MLA. Yes, there is still likely considerable opposition to the HST. But the emotional, visceral anger attached to that tax appears to

Conflict issue is not ‘laughable’ Dear Editor:

Re: Trustee says legal opinion ‘political’ attack, The Record, Feb. 5. The Record is to be commended for the quality of its reporting on what is now the saga of trustee Lori Watt’s ostensible conflict of interest. Ms. Watt is wrong; the matter neither “laughable” nor “nonsense.” The benchmark standard of establishing a conflict will not be Ms. Watt’s protests to the contrary. Patrick O’Connor’s motives, in seeking the legal opinion, are irrelevant. He is a citizen, a stakeholder with legal and customary standing. Mr. O’Connor has specific standing under Section 62 of the School Act, which Ms. Watt ignores at her peril. Trustee Watt seems unaware this is a serious matter of integrity and corporate governance. Every ◗Politics Page 7 board member and trustee, whether in a public, pri-

vate or non-profit organization, must not only avoid any conflict of interest but having the appearance of one. Ms. Watt says, “I can read the School Act, and I can say I’m not in a conflict.” If not in conflict, why say next she is seeking her own legal opinion to determine compliance? Describing a legal opinion from an eminent law firm, as a “political attack” is undignified, unworthy of any elected official. To quote Metternich, it’s worse than criminal, it’s a blunder! The B.C. School Act is online. I invite readers to access it and inform their own judgment. There is a large Part 5 – Conflict of Interest. Any plain, objective reading of the Part 5, Sections 56 and 58 indicate Ms. Watt meets the criteria to put her in a conflict position. While clear, the School Act is a minimalist document. The school board also needs a code of ◗Trustee Page 7

conduct and a code of ethics. What every progressive Canadian institution has in place today. Every board member must be committed to the highest standards of integrity, business and professional conduct. Trustee Jim Goring understands this; Ms Watt has a lesser appreciation. Trustees are obliged to comply with both the spirit and letter of all laws; rules; statutes; codes; policies and regulations. And actively promote such compliance. Ms Watt’s actions have compromised the board. A breach, or potential breach of governance by any member, can trigger action against all board members. The board must act. Qui tacet consentit. The board will be required, at the very least, to seek its own legal opinion. Or initiate its own investigation to determine if any current board member is now or has ever been, in a conflict position. A useful and instructive first step for Ms. Watt is to actually read Part 5 of the School Act, which governs her conduct. Ms. Watt cannot now just recuse herself. She must step aside until the board fully examines and resolves the matter. Alan McNulty, New Westminster

A case of political déjà vu

Dear Editor:

As Yogi Berra once said, “It’s déjà vu, all over again.” In Mr. Forseth’s letter to the editor printed on Wednesday, Feb. 2

(NDP eyeing another coalition), yet again Mr. Forseth engages in selective recollection of Canadian political history, particularly when it comes to the idea of “coalition governments.” In August of 2008, Mr. Forseth engaged in almost the exact same partisan attack upon the NDP in a letter to the editor to The Record, printed on Aug. 9, 2008. In 2008, Mr. Forseth stated that “Layton’s handiwork could be seen all over the ‘coalition’ deal. It is a Jack Layton-designed attempted coup. Jack is ambitious, and his goal is to push himself to the top.” I responded in kind, in an e-mail sent to the editor of The Record on Aug. 12, 2008, reminding the readers and Mr. Forseth himself that on Sept. 4, 2004, Stephen Harper, then leader of the Opposition, saw fit to propose a coalition government with Jack Layton and Gilles Duceppe, by writing a letter to the Governor General of Canada, advising Adrianne Clarkson that: “As leaders of the opposition parties, we are well aware that, given the Liberal minority government, you could be asked by the prime minister to dissolve the 38th Parliament at any time should the House of Commons fail to support some part of the government’s program. “We respectfully point out that the opposition parties, who together constitute a majority in the House, have been in close consultation. We believe that, should a request for dissolution arise this should give you cause, as constitutional practice has determined, to consult the opposition leaders and consider all of your options

Politics: Forget about an island bridge ◗ continued from page 6

be ebbing. The reason for that apparently diminished anger appears to be an obvious one: Gordon Campbell will soon be gone as premier. The moment he said he was leaving office was when widespread dissatisfaction with his government started to lessen. That was also the moment any recall campaign became dead in the water. ◗ The bolt-from-the-blue announcement by B.C. Ferries CEO David Hahn that another big round of fare hikes looms has brought back talk of an issue that never seems to disappear: building a bridge between the Mainland and Vancouver Island. To which I say: put a sock in it. There is not going to be a bridge built, period. Not now, not ever

– no matter how much ferry fares continue to climb. The reasons are numerous. First and foremost is the ridiculous expense, with one government estimate pegged at a staggering $12 billion (which would include a one-way toll of $260 to $800; ferry fares may be expensive, but they are a long way from approaching a return fare of more than $500 to $1,600). Why is the cost estimate so high? Well, the main problem is the extremely deep waters of the Strait of Georgia, which is much deeper than almost anywhere else in the world a bridge is located. That $12-billion cost, by the way, is equivalent to 60 years’ worth of the current level of tax subsidies currently received by B.C. Ferries.

All proposals for such a bridge suggest it would span the shortest distance – somewhere around Nanaimo, to Delta, with potential of connecting to some Gulf Islands. This means the main population hub on the Island – the capital region – would not be serviced unless people were willing to travel the 90 minutes over the often-dangerous Malahat Pass. Finally, the problem with B.C. Ferries is not getting people back and forth between Nanaimo and Vancouver – that route actually makes money. Rather, it is the dozens of small, island runs that lose money every time they leave shore that are the problems. No $12-billion bridge is going to fix those.

before exercising your constitutional authority.” Hmm, Harper, Duceppe and Layton in a coalition? Back in 2008, you could see the rank hypocrisy in Stephen Harper when he referred to the Dion, Duceppe and Layton coalition proposal as a “separatist coalition.” It’s fine for Harper to engage in parliamentary tactics and procedures, but when they work or conspire against him, suddenly Canada is bombarded with “bogeyman” scare tactics. Yes, “It’s déja vu, all over again” – only with a slightly conservative, revisionist tone to it. Mr. Forseth’s most recent letter also makes a big deal about the election readiness of the NDP, by using a quote from The Globe and Mail. I suppose he’s missed all the comments from the Conservative caucus about the “campaign planes are fuelled and ready to go” through the media. For the past year, Mr. Harper has engaged in “sabre rattling,” threatening elections as if democracy is a bad thing. In my opinion, it would be irresponsible for any political party, regardless of ideology, to not be “election ready” given the fact that we have a minority government and in the Stephen Harper Conservatives, a party that continually threatens to engineer its own defeat and blame the opposition for doing so. What’s more comedic is the leader of the Opposition, Mr. Ignatieff, who after five straight years of the Liberals either not attending the votes, or voting with the Conservatives on budgets and in particular, corporate tax cuts, suddenly has had a Damascus-like conversion that sometimes corporate tax cuts don’t benefit average Canadians. To me, it smells of despera-

tion. Almost as desperate as pushing the “bogeyman” scare tactics that Mr. Forseth used three years ago. I believe that the two incumbent members of Parliament in New Westminster, Peter Julian and Fin Donnelly, have worked tirelessly in their communities and in Ottawa for their constituents. And both have put aside partisanship to do that job. They are part of the only caucus in Ottawa working for their constituents, while Mr. Ignatieff and Mr. Harper continue their dance around the ballroom floor. A piece of advice to the Conservative candidate in Burnaby-New Westminster: Stick to the issues of the day, Mr. Forseth. People are tired of the Conservative scare tactics, “bogeyman” ads, and the like. Your retread comments about the so called “opposition coalition” are old and tired and are also highly hypocritical. Mr. Forseth, it’s time for some new material.

Grease is the word at NWSS

BY JULIE MACLELLAN REPORTER jmaclellan@royalcityrecord.com

You don’t have to look too hard to find the rehearsal for this year’s musical at New Westminster Secondary School. Just enter through the doors by the Massey Theatre, head downstairs and follow the sounds of joyous chaos – some piano playing, some singing and a whole lot of laughter. The narrow hallway you’re walking down may be a little on the drab side. But you’ll forget about that when you enter the band room and encounter the enthusiastic teens who are the cast of Grease. The musical takes to the stage at Massey Theatre Feb. 24 to 26. A team of teachers – director Frances Monteleone, vocal coach Kelly Proznick, band leader Steve Clements, choreographers Lindsay Waldner and Peter Ha, and stage manager Juliet Brown – are leading a cast of 50 and a student crew in staging the Broadway musical favourite. Monteleone, who’s a drama teacher at the school, just can’t stop the smile that spreads across her face when she’s asked about the musical. She was overwhelmed, she says, by the

How Sandy finds her way as a new girl, and how the two manage to reconcile their very different worlds, is a story that has provided some of the best-known tunes in musical theatre – Summer Nights, You’re The One That I Want, Greased Lightning and Hopelessly Devoted, among others. Ceilidh notes that the show is giving everyone a chance to shine. “It’s going to be such a great show,” she says. “Everybody’s working so hard.” She admits the rehearsal schedule is demanding, particularly since she’s also got a lot of other things on the go – she’s also an avid volunteer outside of school, and she’s eyeing a future in broadcast journalism. “It’s a big commitment, but I always say it’s worth it,” she says. She notes that all the students really appreciate the chance to work in the Massey Theatre. “It’s so nice being attached to the theatre and be able to perform for that many people,” she says. As her onstage romantic counterpart, Jesse couldn’t be more thrilled than to have ◗Grease Page 16

been cast as Danny Zuko – the role, of course, played by John Travolta on screen. “This is a dream role,” Jesse says with a grin. “Ohmygosh, it’s the perfect Grade 12 musical.” Jesse notes that the musical gives the entire large cast a chance to shine. “It has really, really good people who are bonding really well,” he says. “Everybody’s friends.” Jesse is no stranger to the stage: He’s been dancing since he was little and has long been involved with both Royal City Youth Ballet and Royal City Musical Theatre. He’s currently in rehearsals for the Royal City Musical Theatre production of The Will Rogers Follies, coming to the Massey stage in April. He’s also been involved in the choral program at NWSS for his high school career, has taken part in previous school musicals and was on the school’s improv team that went to the nationals last year. Jesse has no doubt that he wants to make his future in theatre. He has auditions lined up through the spring for theatre schools, and he’d love to land at a school in any of the “theatre hubs” – New York, London, Montreal or Toronto. He admits it’s a tough business, which, he notes, is one of the reasons he wants to pursue further training. In the future, he says, there are some more dreams he’d like to achieve. “I have to be in Les Misérables before I die,” he says decisively. “I have to be in a Stephen Sondheim show – Sweeney Todd or something like that.” And, he adds, he’s a big

Larry Wright/THE RECORD

Go, greased lightning: Jesse DeCoste, front, is Danny in the NWSS production of Grease. He’s joined by (from left) Gower Roberts, James Harris, Henry Beasley and Luke McAndless-Davis.

Rodgers and Hammerstein fan. South Pacific is a favourite – “the big, sweeping sets and the big, sweeping orchestrations are gorgeous,” he says. Jesse notes he finds a great deal of support at home for his dreams – his dad is very into music, and his mom is an active volunteer with the organizations he performs in. His older brother, Lucas, is the sporty one in the family – currently a basketball player and Douglas College student. And, following in Jesse’s footsteps, there’s his younger sister, Sadie. The 14-year-old Grade 9 student has been cast in Grease as one of the Pink Ladies, Marty. “It’s kinda funny, she’s kinda the one that goes out with a lot of different guys,” Sadie says with a laugh.

It’s particularly funny since her big brother is there watching, she notes. Sadie makes no secret of the fact that it’s Jesse who inspires her. “He’s been a role model to me in terms of performing and everything,” she says. She, too, has long been involved in Royal City Youth Ballet and Royal City Musical Theatre, and although she doesn’t yet know what the post-highschool future holds, she’s convinced that performing will be part of it. “Most definitely I’ll be doing it my whole life.” In the meantime, however, there’s rehearsal to return to. Joyous chaos quickly turns to focused attention as Waldner steps forward to work through choreography

with a group of the girls. Monteleone, watching from the sidelines, is smiling. She can’t wait to see what it all looks like on opening night. When the curtain rises for the first show, the teacher team will be in the audience – making sure they can all sit together, she notes, so they can hang onto each other’s hands and share the experience. “I cry on opening night, and I cry on closing night,” Monteleone confesses with a smile. ◗ Grease is on at Massey Theatre Feb. 24, 25 and 26, with shows at 7 p.m. each night and a Saturday matinee at 2 p.m. Tickets are available through the Massey Theatre box office, www.tickets.masseytheatre. com or 604-521-5050. Seating will be reserved this year, rather than general admission.

Comedy on stage

Theatre fans, this is your last week to catch the Vagabond Players’ current production. The theatre group is presenting Norman, Is That You?, a comedy by Ron Clark and Sam Bobrick, until Feb. 12. The play follows the story of Ben Chambers and his wife, Beatrice. When Beatrice leaves her husband, Ben decides to go to New York to visit his son – only to discover that Norman is gay. “Chaos ensues as Ben tries every ploy to put his son ‘straight,’ and when Beatrice shows up, things become even more complicated,” a press release

explains. The cast includes Vagabond veterans Isabel Mendenhall, Pat McDermott and Alexandra Wilson, along with newcomers Harry Pering and James Rha. It’s directed by Paul Kloegman. It’s on at the Bernie Legge Theatre in Queen’s Park. Evening shows are at 8 p.m., Thursday through Saturday. Tickets are $15 regular, $13 for seniors and $5 for students.

◗ IN THE LIBRARY

New magazines at the library BY ROSEMARY KEELAN CONTRIBUTOR editorial@royalcityrecord.com

E

very year, the New Westminster Public Library revamps its magazine collection, dropping some not-so-popular items and taking on new ones. This year the uptick in New Westminster’s gay population (Is New West the new West End, The Record, June 19) is reflected in our new acquisitions. The library now subscribes to The Advocate (no, not the lawyers’ magazine), a gay and lesbian news magazine. It comes with Out, which covers fashion and lifestyle. There is also Curve, a lesbian magazine that includes news, style, pop culture and travel, and Bitch, a feminist magazine for all thinking young women featuring news and

opinion. You can also look at these magazines online and, even if you are not gay or feminist, it is still interesting to get another perspective on this great wide world. For all news junkies, gay, straight and whatever, the big reveal is that The Christian Science Monitor is now a magazine, and you can take it out of the library’s front door and read it at home. This venerable publication is “known for avoiding sensationalism” and for its “objective and informative coverage of Islam and the Middle East” (quotes from Wikipedia). And for something completely different, Words and Music (formerly Canadian Composer), the organ of the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada has been

renewed. “What?” you yawn. But wait, there’s a whole article on Ron Sexsmith and his new album (“lusher, louder but just as lyrically lovely”), and others on Canadians in Nashville, South Asian music in Canada, and Boe-1da making “hard knocking beats for top artists.” Worth a look! This final selection will make some enthusiasts very happy. Model Airplane News, a magazine for the world of radio-controlled aircraft, has been renewed. Anyone who assembles, flies, goes to rallies and air shows with these big beauties (some have 12-foot wingspans) will love this magazine. In the Library is provided by the New Westminster Public Library, 716 Sixth Ave. Check out the library online at www.nwpl.ca.

Pay tribute to Tim OUR PAST

ARCHIE & DALE MILLER

W

e have been putting together a list and information about some local monuments. They are older rather that current ones, with background on their creation and unveiling. If they are no longer in place, we note where they are kept. If they are currently missing, we note when they disappeared and where they might be. During this process, we received a question about one such item located in a prominent location but often overlooked – the monument to “Tim” near city hall. We worded the previous line the way we did because you can be sure that many who are reading this column are thinking, “A ‘Tim’ monument? at city hall? What are these people talking about?” The monument in question is on the Sixth Street side of the hall at the head

of a short path in from the Sixth Street sidewalk, beautifully surrounded by flowers in each season courtesy of the city parks department. This monument has been there since September of 1924, when it was unveiled. The “Tim” of the monument was Tim Mahony, who passed away in February of 1924 and was regarded as a sportsman and children’s friend. A portion of the newspaper description of that simple unveiling ceremony sums up the man and his place in the city: “The memorial takes the form of a drinking fountain made of British Columbia granite and is located within sight of the Central and Duke of Connaught high schools and of the Armouries where the late Tim Mahony spent so many years as armoury sergeant and general factotum when it came to repairing athletic equipment for the boys and girls of the city.” The unveiling featured several hundred students and many adults around the monument, with the youth in front on three sides of the stone and the adults to the rear. The ceremony featured O

Canada by the Westminster Regiment Band; a few words on Tim by thenmayor Annandale, his friend of many years; The Last Post by buglers from the Regiment; the uncovering of the stone by the May Queen, Esther Elofson; a eulogy by Canon d’Easum of Holy Trinity; a wreath placement by a girl from Herbert Spencer Elementary School; and the then-national anthem, God Save the King. This was very much a project of the young people of the city who paid a large portion of the cost of the monument through donations of small change. Canon d’Easum noted “the importance of the young boys and girls ‘playing the game’ in the spirit that actuated the endeavours of Mr. Mahony, and how he had interested himself in the promotion of clean, healthy sport and the training of the school children to accept defeat in the right spirit.” The monument to “Tim” deserves your visit. Read the inscription and pause for a moment to thank this early citizen who was dedicated to the welfare of youth.

◗ HEALTH

A family run business does make a difference

Words to live by: Give more than you get HEALTHWISE

DR. DAVIDICUS WONG

W

henever I’ve felt sorry for myself, thought that life was unfair or, feeling underappreciated, decided I was giving too much of myself to others, I slap myself and ask, “What were you expecting?” You could consume your life with complaining. Looking at the cup half-full, you notice that it’s also dirty and chipped. You could even complain about the taste of the water in that lousy half-filled cup. You could fill your conscious thoughts with a running commentary on all that’s wrong with everyone else and everything you see. But where will that leave you? Anxious, angry or sad, and blind to the good things in life – the friendly, familiar smile in the crowd, a call from your best friend, the giggles of a child, green lights and smooth sections along the bumpy road of life. I start each day with

a prayer of thanks, and, with an attitude of gratitude, I look for the good throughout the day. I seek the beauty that I might otherwise overlook in an ordinary day. I see it in my home and my neighbourhood, on the way to work, in my wife and children, my patients and friends. And I look for opportunities to make the world a little better and a little happier each day. Expectations can disappoint you. When life is sailing smoothly, we can take it for granted and expect nothing to change, but when the wind changes and storms ensue, we’re blown away. When we work hard and expect what we deserve but don’t get it, we feel miserable. When we get sick, have accidents and run into a trend of bad luck, we protest the unfairness of it all. If life is a game where the object is to get ahead and get as much as we want, we are all ultimate losers. We will lose all the money we earn and all the things we buy, and we will lose all that we love, because we will someday die. Change your expecta-

tions; change your life. My mom taught me the secret to a meaningful life: give more than you get. She committed herself to her family, friends and community. She seized every opportunity to make the world better for others through her volunteer work, through thoughtful gifts and cards, comforting words, a helping hand, and countless acts of kindness. This was her secret to happiness: not to hoard the good things in life or hope for a perfect world, but to give the good from your own heart to make this a better world for others. Since Feb. 1, I’ve been sharing the insights I’ve learned from my patients, friends and family in A Hundred Days to Happiness. Each day, I’m posting one new insight on facebook.com/davidicus. wong, twitter.com/ DrDavidicusWong and my blog at davidicuswong. wordpress.com. 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.

Chigiri-e: Creating art from paper

BY JULIE MACLELLAN REPORTER jmaclellan@royalcityrecord.com

Light and colour abound in Roxsane Tiernan’s living room. The walls of her Cariboo Heights home are covered in art. Some of the works are reflective; others are sheer celebrations of the beauty of nature. But the overall impression is one of joy. It seems right, somehow, that Tiernan should be surrounded by this joyous explosion of her own work – particularly when you learn that it was sorrow that started her on this journey to a life filled with art. An exhibition of Tiernan’s chigiri-e is opening at Jeunesse Gallery of Fine Arts in Vancouver this weekend. The Japanese art form uses delicate, handmade paper of varying textures and colours to produce work that, upon first glance, looks very much like watercolour painting. It’s an art form that came into Tiernan’s life at a profoundly difficult time. It was 1984. Her 17-year-old daughter had died of a brain tumour a few years previously. She had just walked away from a marriage that was no longer working. Needing a change, she left for Japan to spend a few months with a friend. Japanese culture had always fascinated her, and the chance to immerse herself in a new life came at a welcome time. Her friend signed her up to take an introductory class in chigiri-e, where the first assignment was to create a simple dogwood blossom. Tiernan finished the project in 20 minutes, and she spent the next couple hours experimenting and learning how to play with the paper. She was hooked. Tiernan laughs at the memory as she

hauls out an oversized plastic bag, filled with a profusion of colourful papers. She’s managed to bring some of it in from Japan – from her own travel or that of friends – and the rest she generally orders from a specialty supplier in Toronto. The paper comes in various thicknesses – the most delicate being about half the thickness of a Kleenex – and various textures, with some being very fibrous and others sheer and gauzy. Much of it is dipdyed, with subtle variations in colour. “You can play with the colour,” she explains, pointing out differences between deep purple sections and subtler lilac shades in one particular sheet. “It allows you to get the shading, it allows you to get the light. You can shade, you can glaze, you can do all the things paint allows you to do. … It’s the kind of thing you can’t necessarily teach somebody. They have to observe and go from there.” Tiernan was no stranger to art by the time she took up chigiri-e. She was raising her family in Squamish in the 1970s and working as a substitute teacher, but she wasn’t fond of staying home. So she went to Capilano College to study art – the program covered weaving, spinning, painting and more – and art became a big part of her life. Over the years, her art work has also been influenced by her travels. She’s seen more than 30 countries and also spent time working abroad. She spent two years in Mexico as program director for the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. Later, alongside teaching at New Westminster Secondary School, she worked for the New Westminster School District marketing its programs at educa-

Everywhere she goes, she comes back with photographs, ideas and impressions to incorporate into her art. Her subject matter is varied, but it always focuses on nature. The chigiri-e show opening this weekend is local in focus, with a variety of West Coast-inspired subjects – many from right here at home. One, she notes, is based on a photograph she took just outside the New Westminster Public Library, of crocuses just beginning to bloom in spring. Tiernan confesses she’s excited by this

upcoming show. Though she’s been part of many shows in the past at many galleries – the Arts Council of New Westminster, Place des Arts, the Inlet Wellness Gallery in Port Moody and many more – she notes that this exhibition is special. “To get into a commercial gallery is a major step, and this is a solo show,” she notes. An opening reception is set for Saturday, Feb. 12 from 2 to 4 p.m. Her work will be on display until March 9. Jeunesse Gallery is at 2668 West Fourth Ave., Vancouver.

February blooms bring signs of springtime BRANCHING OUT

S

ANNE MARRISON

hrubs and trees that flower in February assure us that winter is loosening its grip. They bring joy out of all proportion to their numbers – because few gardeners plant for winter bloom. One of the loveliest winter-flowering trees is witchhazel, which produces clusters of yellow, red or orange wispy petals. Some of the yellows (including the species Hamamelis mollis) are hugely fragrant. They’re all easy-going deciduous woodland-edge plants that enjoy clay, accept occasional wet feet and tolerate partial shade. Good cultivars include Diane (non-fragrant red flowers and fall foliage), Jelena (non-fragrant orange flowers), Pallida (fragrant, butter-yellow flowers, yellow fall leaves) and Arnold’s Promise (gold fragrant flowers). Most cultivars are grafted, which results in rootstock suckers after extensive pruning. Flowers usually open in January and last into February. Because it’s slowgrowing and difficult to

propagate, witch-hazel is pricy. When I grew several from seed, I discovered they’re very slow to flower. They finally bloomed at the age of seven years after I threatened them with composting. Another treasure is the winter honeysuckle, Lonicera fragrantissima. By the end of January, clusters of little white tubes hang down along the previous season’s stems. The fragrance is heavenly, and it’s a good cut flower. In summer, red berries hide among the leaves. This bush honeysuckle can reach 4.5 metres across and 1.8 metres tall. Pruning old and weak stems right after flowering encourages next year’s flowering stems to develop. This honeysuckle tolerates most light conditions and soils, as well as being extremely hardy. In mild winters, it can be evergreen. The longest-flowering of any winter shrub is Viburnum bodnantense. This starts blooming in October and continues till April. It’s a deciduous shrub with multiple upright stems that begin arching with age. The flowers are dense clusters of small pink blooms (rarely white) that release an intense perfume when they open. Flowering begins in October and lasts till April.

The buds clench tight in frosts but open fast when it warms up. By summer you can usually find a few small red fruits. This viburnum tolerates most soils including clay and accepts sun or part shade. It can be kept from out-growing its space removing a few of the oldest stems each year. The winter jasmine (Jasminium nudiflorum) also produces yellow scentless flowers on long, green leafless stems beginning about December and continuing till March. You can bring sheafs of this into the house if you have big enough vases because it can be pruned back hard when it’s in flower. This one thrives in just about any soil and light conditions including deep shade on a north wall where it flowers just as prolifically as it does in sun. The only difference is that flowers begin opening a little later in shade. It’s super-hardy and container-friendly, though

the spreading roots tend to limit how many neighbours you can plant with it. But it’s reluctant to stand alone, so it must be tied onto a support.

Honouring the past, looking to the future Black History Month symposium at Douglas College on Saturday BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER brichter@royalcityrecord.com

This Saturday includes a black history month event that promises two things black youth in the Lower Mainland badly need, according to organizer Bernard Piprah – a look into their history and a look forward to their own future. Now in its third year, the Black History Month Youth Symposium at Douglas College is slated to have a host of inspirational speakers and artists targeting the Lower Mainland’s black youth with positive messaging, infused with black history. “I wanted to find ways to encourage youth to acknowledge their history, to be interested and fall in love with knowing where they’re from and reaching for better things in life,” Piprah said. Some guests Piprah has scheduled for the symposium include RCMP Const. George Amaoko, filmmaker Lincoln Thorne, dub poet and spoken word artist Kevan “Scruffmouth” Cameron and counselling therapist Geoff Ayi-Bonte. Topics range from young women facing pregnancy to preparing yourself for postsecondary options, the black experience, and building a strong network for achieving personal goals. “There’s a variety of messages, which is what I really wanted. I wanted unique messages from different genders, from people from African/Caribbean places,” Piprah said. “I gave the presenters the autonomy to create what they want to speak on while integrating black history into their presentations.” But while the event may be targeted at black youth, Piprah said everyone is welcome. He abhors the idea of exclusion. “I don’t want to exclude anybody from this event. I want to encourage everybody to take part. We can all learn from each other all the time,” he said.

Piprah said the Douglas College location is ideal for the event because New Westminster and Burnaby have such robust black communities. According to 2006 census data, 1,370 people in New West identify themselves as black – more than double the amount per capita than Vancouver. Piprah said he was inspired to organize the symposium after going through schools in the Lower Mainland with virtually no mention of black history or prominent black figures in the curriculum. “The idea was basically out of necessity in my opinion. Being from Ontario, at a very early age, youth from my background are exposed to a lot of Black History Month events. Even in public school,” he said. “It was a tough transition when I came originally from Mississauga to Vancouver. They’re really two different cities. One of the first things that you notice when you’re in Vancouver is there’s very few African/Caribbean Canadians here. I thought the Lower Mainland needed youth events like this, especially during black history month.” One of those black figures, not likely on the history exam in New West schools, is John Sullivan Deas. Deas, born in South Carolina and trained as a tinsmith in San Francisco, moved to Vancouver Island in 1861 or 62, according to historian Keith Ralston’s biography on him. Ralston writes that Deas left the United States to escape increasingly bigoted laws targeting blacks. He still faced bigotry in B.C., albeit in a less formal form. Deas continued working as a tinsmith in the area making tin cans for salmon canneries. In 1872, Deas took over a cannery making him the first black cannery owner in B.C. For five years, Deas could also boast to owning the largest cannery on the Fraser River. Deas left B.C. in 1878 and spent his remaining years in Portland, Oregon. Some of Deas’ children are buried in Fraser Cemetery. The Black History Month Youth Symposium starts at 12:30 p.m. at Douglas College, Room 1614.

Douglas to play good B.C. host

Clan women turn over bad leaf

Royals seeking sixth provincial badminton title BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR

The Douglas College Royals are gunning for a sixth B.C. college provincial team badminton title, and where better else to do it than at home. Beginning Saturday, the Douglas David Lam campus will be the place to be for the finest in B.C. college badminton. The Royals are the No. 1 nationally ranked team in the country. They can expect to be pushed by No. 5 overall Kwantlen Polytechnical University and No. 9 Thompson Rivers University. Two other BCCAA schools, Langara College and Vancouver Island University are also ranked in the top 15. Capilano University is also scheduled to take part in the six-team competition. “Two years ago we knew we were going to win four of five awards, we were seeded second, but won the provincials with a clean sweep. This year, yeah, I’d say the men’s doubles is where the landmine is. Anything could happen,” Douglas head coach Al Mawani said, adding both Langara and Kwantlen are formidable opponents in the men’s doubles. Douglas is all but assured of the women’s singles and doubles titles. Current Canadian college female badminton player of the month, RuiLin Huang, has yet to lose an individual match in three seasons at Douglas. Huang, who will con-

The Simon Fraser University women’s basketball team lost both of its conference matches last week. SFU lost 75-68 to Western Oregon on Saturday following a 70-62 defeat at home to St. Martin’s University on Thursday. SFU remained in the eighth and final GNAC playoff spot despite the two defeats. At home, the Clan committed 28 turnovers to see its conference record fall to 2-9. “We committed crucial turnovers at terrible times,” said SFU head coach Bruce Langford in a prepared release. “We shot the ball incredibly well, we were well over 50 per cent from outside, but again, we have played out this scenario three times now where we have given away a game.” With the game tied in the second half, the Clan missed its final four shots and a free throw in the waning minutes, and committed a costly turnover in the final minute of play. Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe led all scorers with 23 points and 18 rebounds. On Saturday, SFU missed a chance to catch Western Oregon in the standings. Kristina Collins had a team-high 24 points, five assists and three steals. Raincock-Ekunwe had a 16-point, 14-rebound double-double, while freshman guard Kia Van Laare of New Westminster added 11 points.

South Rebels beat Kelowna, back on top BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

The Burnaby South Rebels are back in the No. 1 spot in provincial high school boys’ basketball following a win over the Kelowna Owls. The Rebels, still stinging from a loss to Kelowna at the Terry Fox Legal Beagle tournament last month that knocked them out of the top spot, defeated the host Owls 81-69 in the championship final at the Western Canada tourney on Saturday. South had held the No. 1 spot

since the preseason until that meeting against Kelowna on Jan. 7. “Yeah, familiar ground,” remarked Rebel head coach Greg Matic on Monday. “When we walked into the dressing room to give them a pep talk, there was silence. They knew the purpose of the trip. They wanted to prove they were pretty good.” South left little doubt they were better than just pretty good, knocking over Alberta’s No. 1 Raymond High School 81-66 in the semifinals behind Nick Irvine’s 22-point, 20-rebound

double-double. Kelowna upset former provincial No. 1 R.C. Palmer of Richmond 73-69 in the other semifinal. In the opening quarter of the tournament final, South shot a blistering 75 per cent from the floor, but was lukewarm outside the arc and at the free throw line for much of the first half. South trailed the Owls 37-33 at the interval in front of an enemy crowd of approximately 2,000 partisan Kelowna supporters. “We are very much a secondhalf team,” Matic said. “We were

missing tons of shots and were really tight, forcing things. But we felt good. They played well, but we played well enough to win.” Tournament first team all-star Manroop Clair led all scorers with 28 points, including four three-pointers, for the Rebels. Tournament MVP Ater Degal potted 18 points, seven rebounds, six assists and four steals for South. Lazar Cuk was the difference maker in the final, said Matic, netting 15 points and nine boards, while Quentin Nguyen

also chipped in with 10 for the winners. South outscored the Owls 2810 off turnovers, while also nailing 10 bombs from beyond the arc. The Rebels also got a key 25 points from players coming off the bench. The Rebels outscored Kelowna 48-32 in the second half, including 26-15 in the final quarter. In South’s semifinal matchup, Clair garnered 19 points, while Degal and Daniel Edwards added ◗Rebels Page 28

Here's How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
