Bombs away New Westminster kids will soon be launching seed bombs at various sites in the Royal City. The New Westminster Horticultural Society is giving out plant green-aids or bombs to children attending its annual plant sale on Sunday. The green-aids can be tossed into areas in need of beautification. At left, society member Carole Forsythe shows some of the seed bombs that students at Richard McBride Elementary School made to beautify the school grounds. Above, Richard McBride students dig in and make seed bombs from a blend of clay, compost, wildflower seeds and water rolled into a ball and dried.

Former city priest drummed out of parish Lawyer questions why priest who was found guilty of sexual assault of a minor was still working in the church BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER brichter@royalcityrecord.com

A former New Westminster priest who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting two young girls has been drummed out of a Catholic parish in Eastern Ontario. Father John McCann pleaded guilty

Razing the neighbourhood for new centre Site is being cleared for new civic centre – planned for 2013 BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

The walls are tumbling down at the site of the City of New Westminster’s future civic centre. For the past few weeks, the contractor has been removing hazardous materials (such as asbestos) and other building materials from inside the buildings in the 700 block of Columbia Street. Work is now underway to demolish the buildings’ exterior walls. “It is going to take them about four days to do,” said Terry Atherton, the city’s manager of civic buildings and properties. “They will be doing the exterior walls and the roof.” In addition to the buildings at the civic centre site, the contractors will also be demolishing buildings on the Kyoto site that’s located across the street. According to Atherton, the future civic centre site will be cleared by the end of June or beginning of July. Some foundation walls will remain. “Some of these buildings are holding up the sidewalks,” he explained. “It will be like a vacant lot with some (foundation) walls.” Once the demolition phase is complete, the next contractor will come in and begin shoring the site for the three levels of underground parking. “That will take about five or six months,” Atherton said. “After, that they will start building the parking structure.” The city’s portion of the civic centre will include a theatre, convention space,

The city has partnered with the Uptown Property Group, which will build an office tower of up to eight storeys above the civic centre, which will be built on Columbia Street between Eighth and Begbie streets. In 2008, the City of New Westminster

initiated the process of expropriating 801 Columbia St. as a potential home for a civic square or centre. The city was eventually able to buy the building, which had been owned by Kyoto Fine Foods. Beverly Grieve, the city’s manager of planning, said the city felt it made sense to deconstruct those buildings at the same time as the buildings on the future civic centre site.

“We haven’t been given any direction what to do with it,” she said about plans for the Kyoto site “There has been no decision made yet.” The City of New Westminster negotiated $35 million in gaming funds to build the multiuse civic facility in downtown New Westminster. The contract stipulates that the facility must be built by December 2013.

Will TransLink have new plan for UBE? City council concerned that new plan will look like the plan New West has rejected BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

TransLink is approaching the final phase of its United Boulevard consultation process. After community members and council rejected previous United Boulevard extension options, TransLink embarked on a public process in March. Phase 1 gave community members a chance to share their transportation concerns and ideas, and Phase 2 was to refine the concepts. “Phase 2 is now complete,” said Jim Lowrie, the city’s director of engineering. “We are following the consultation

process very closely, monitoring the input from the community. We will be expected to make a recommendation to council after May 19.” On May 19, TransLink will hold a Phase 3 meeting and make its final recommendation about the United Boulevard extension. The meeting will be held at the Sapperton Pensioners Hall at 318 Keary St. from 7 to 8:30 p.m. “We will assess that from the city’s perspective and the technical perspective,” Lowrie said of the final recommendation. As part of the process, TransLink has compiled reports about emissions, train delays, travel patterns, traffic volumes and collision frequencies in the vicinity of the United Boulevard extension. Sany Zein, TransLink’s director of roads, provided city council with an update on the public process at its May 9 committee of the whole meeting.

Coun. Jonathan Cote said council expressed frustration that it appears what’s being considered isn’t vastly different from what had previously been rejected by the community and council. Cote said he is keeping an open mind until the consultation process concludes and city staff provide analysis on the recommendation. He’s not convinced the concerns he had in December have been addressed. “We are dealing with this before we are dealing with the Pattullo Bridge,” he said. “I really do think we need to be dealing with them at the same time.” The United Boulevard extension is a component of the North Fraser Perimeter Road, which would eventually run from United Boulevard to the Queensborough Bridge. TransLink needs to have a solution by June because the project needs to be

completed by March 31, 2014 in order to get federal funding. The federal government has agreed to contribute $65 million toward the project, primarily because it would address concerns about safety and transportation delays at the train crossings at Braid and Brunette. Zein recently said that TransLink is trying to treat the North Fraser Perimeter Road as a package, recognizing that there are bottlenecks along various sections of the corridor. While it would like to build the entire corridor at once, he said it’s likely the project would have to be done in phases, with the first phase centering around Braid Avenue, Brunette Street and United Boulevard area in Sapperton. For years, New Westminster city council has stressed the need for the United Boulevard extension to be done as part at the entire North Fraser Perimeter Road corridor.

Bombs away: Students at Richard McBride Elementary School helped beautify their school grounds by throwing “seed bombs” – also known as green-aids – at a section of lawn. Green aids will be given out to kids attending the New Westminster Horticultural Society’s plant sale on Sunday, May 15.

Hours: Sun.-Thurs. 11:00 a.m.-9 p.m.; Fri. & Sat. 11:00 a.m.-10 p.m.

TheNewWestminsterHorticultural Society’s annual plant sale has something for gardeners of all ages and interests – from rare plants to plant bombs. Gardeners come from near and far to attend the society’s annual sale in search of plants. “There was just under 900 people who purchased last year,” said society member Carole Forsythe. “It’s quite popular.” In fact, the sale is so popular that attendees are willing to wait in a lineup to check out the plant sale’s offering. Forsythe notes that the lineup moves fast and organizers provide cookies for people waiting in line. This year’s sale, which is taking place on Sunday, May 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Armoury, features annuals, perennials, shrubs and trees. Society members start the annuals from seeds, so some unusual plants are available that people wouldn’t find in a garden centre. “It’s overflowing. We have a lot of stuff,” Forsythe said. “I am surprised because it has been such a horrible spring.”

In addition to a wide variety of plants from members’ own gardens, the sale will include a selection of succulents from New Westminster parks, culture and recreation department. “They are giving us a number of succulents from their collection,” Forsythe said of plants that were part of plant displays in parks. “There is quite a variety of them.” Another new feature at this year’s sale is a designated area for unusual, rare or new varieties of plants, an area sure to appeal to plant collectors. “These are specialty plants collected and propagated by some of our more avid members. They are not found in retail garden centres,” Forsythe wrote in a note to The Record. “After a long winter, it will be a relief to get into my garden to add some new plants.” TheNewWestminsterHorticultural Society is doing its best to encourage the next generation of gardeners by giving Grade 1 students in New Westminster a $5 gift certificate to buy their very own plants. All children who attend the plant sale will be given a package of seed green-aids. “What is a seed green-aid? It’s a blend of clay, compost, wildflower seeds and water rolled into a ball and

OUR VIEW

at avoiding public scrutiny are a dangerous reminder that the Liberals still find that tactic successful. Clark needs to show that she can take the heat and really display some of that “change” she said she would bring to the Liberals. Frankly, she is doing herself a disservice by ducking debates. Using a Sarah Palin tactic puts her in poor company – she’s better than that. Playing safe by avoiding a debate is really not playing safe – it’s revealing a disturbing flaw in our new premier.

She may think that stepping onto a platform with David Eby will do her more harm than good. Eby has said that she is avoiding a debate so she can evade questions about her reign as Minister of Education from 2001 to 2004. That could be true. But we believe that by avoiding any debate she is revealing a much more troubling trait. Avoiding public scrutiny is one of the reasons the Liberals earned a well-deserved reputation for mendacity and deception. And Clark’s efforts

Can B.C. Liberals save the HST? IN THE HOUSE KEITH BALDREY

I

f the B.C. Liberal government wants even a passing chance for the harmonized sales tax to be approved through a referendum, it appears to have only one option: reducing the size of the tax itself. It must knock at least one point off the tax, bringing it down to 11 per cent (or even 10 per cent), thus making returning to the old provincial sales tax/GST system a less palatable option. Anything short of that dramatic action will likely fail to sway enough British Columbians to vote to keep the HST. And even that may not be enough. Although some polls suggest the opposition to the HST is not at the white-hot anger level that greeted it when it was first unveiled, it still appears a majority of the population is against it. As well, it’s going to be hard to motivate people to actually vote in favour of a tax, even at the best of times. No amount of advertising will turn public opinion around on this. In fact, I suspect a government-sponsored ad campaign would backfire, because people

simply don’t trust the B.C. Liberals when it comes to the HST. But people may respond differently if they suddenly have a chance to embrace a cheaper form of taxation (for most people). If the HST was reduced to 11 per cent, it would be a choice between that tax and the old system, which would be 12 per cent. Of course, knocking a point off the HST comes with a hefty cost – around $800 million a year from the province’s budget. But the just-released report by an independent panel chaired by former Alberta treasurer Jim Dinning included some startling new information that paves the way for a reduction in the HST According to the panel, the HST is not “revenue-neutral” to government finances. In fact, it is expected to generate more than $800 million a year more in revenue for the government. This appears to be a spectacular miscalculation by the government and further strains the credibility of the B.C. Liberals when it comes to anything it says about the controversial tax. But the anticipated increase in revenue – as forecast by the panel – would greatly mitigate the impact of knocking a point off the HST. The panel’s report did little to help drum up support for the HST. It concludes the tax will cost each family more than $300

In loving memory of a mother Dear Editor:

I don’t remember when I first started loving her. It may have been when I sat on her lap as she sang me to sleep, rocking in her squeaky old rocker. We sat by the radiator in the dining room hugging the heat from the coal furnace in the bitterly cold Ontario winters. Or it may have been the nights when Daddy was away. His work kept him out of town weeks at a time, and it was then that I slept with her. She would tell me stories of her childhood on the farm – simple happy stories of horseback rides by the river with her friend, picnics with her sister. I loved to hear them over and over, and soon would turn over and drift off to sleep. Later, she taught me to embroider. In the even◗HST Page 7 ings, after my homework was done, we would sit

together embroidering at the oak table in the dining room, speaking only now and then to break a comfortable silence. Or I would practise the piano and she would correct my mistakes or praise me lavishly when I ran through a piece with no errors. Daddy died before I turned 11. I slept with her all the time after his death. She stopped singing at that time. I heard her crying softly when she thought I was asleep. But two years later, her first grandchild was born, and she began to sing again. It was so good to hear her bustling about her housework singing. Even my teen years presented few problems. She encouraged me to bring my friends home. She’d have doughnuts or cookies or cake on the counter. We’d make cocoa and sit in the kitchen laughing and talking. She would talk to my friends for a while and then retreat to her bedroom to read. She ◗Mom Page 7

said she loved to hear us having a good time. She especially had a way with the boys. When we moved away from our hometown to Vancouver, four of the neighbourhood boys that were my friends chipped in and bought her (not me!) a silver casserole. What a compliment that was! I was so proud of her. For the next 30 years or so, she passed along that warm love. She celebrated her 90th birthday surrounded by family and friends – 135 of them. We sang “Happy Birthday” to that grand old lady, now slightly hard of hearing but still sharp as a tack. We sang songs that we remembered hearing her sing, and we paid tribute to her love and kindness. Each Saturday she still got down on her hands and knees to scrub her kitchen floor. She still baked cookies to have on hand for the children and grandchildren dropping by for a visit. And she still patched the grandsons’ jeans and sewed nighties for the great-grandchildren who were coming

along thick and fast now. But, six months after that 90th birthday, she had a stroke. It was decided that we would care for her at home. With my nursing experience, I was able to show my sisters how to feed and turn her. I took the night shift, and they took the day shift. In the evening, we were all with her. Friends and family stopped by to talk to her or just hold her hand. By the end of the week she could barely speak, but she still seemed to understand everything we said. That last night as I lay beside her in bed, I rubbed her back, hugged her wasted little frame and told her how much I loved her – something I had never felt a need to voice. It took her a long time to say it, but with much difficulty she said “I love you too.” Those were the last words I heard her speak. The following day she had another stroke. One week later, she died. It has been 24 years, but I still think of her every day. The many songs she sang can still bring tears to my eyes. She was truly the love of my life. Helen Toth, New Westminster

HST: Will B.C. Liberals reduce the tax? ◗ continued from page 6

a year, hardly the kind of sales pitch the government was hoping to get from the panel when it was first commissioned. Premier Christy Clark keeps hinting about changes looming for the tax. More exemptions, perhaps, or giving more people financial rebates (more than one million people with low incomes already get quarterly cheques sent to them) are among the possibilities. Those HST rebates, by the way, are another example of how the government keeps fumbling the ball on this issue. I suspect relatively few of those who get those rebate cheques even link them to the HST. The cheques themselves actually come through

Ottawa, and the amount is lumped in with a carbon tax credit. It’s not obvious to those cashing those cheques that the HST is responsible for some of that money. Presumably, those 1.1 million people getting those cheques should be motivated to vote to keep the HST, but they first have to make the connection between the tax and the money they’re getting. But actually cutting the tax looks like the only way to come even close to having the tax accepted. Even a reduction may have to be sweetened further, perhaps by expanding the financial rebate scheme to include more middle-income earners. If the HST goes down to defeat, the B.C. government will have a $2-billion

hole blown in its finances at a time when it can least afford such a calamity, so bold action is required. Clark has undone a number of policies she inherited from the Campbell administration. She’s raised the minimum wage, partially restored gaming grants to charities, gotten rid of parking meters in provincial parks, and looks to be fostering a positive new dialogue with the province’s teachers. Will she add reducing the HST to her list? If she wants to keep the tax – and she says she does – it represents her only hope for getting a majority of British Columbians to agree with her.

Plants: Sale set for this Sunday ◗ continued from page 4

The green-aid bags will include a recipe for making additional green-aids and instructions for using them. “Those are free for children,” Forsythe said. “Kids that come to the plant sale can pick up a bag for themselves.” Forsythe said green-aids – also called bombs – have been around a long time. “They were first used after the First World War in Hawaii. There was a forest fire,” she said. “They took some up in the airplane and dropped them in an area they wanted to re-vegetate.” Earlier in the week, students at Richard McBride Elementary helped beautify their school by hurling green-aids at a section of the lawn. Forsythe said many people are opting to have gardens instead of lawns in their yards or are incorporating flowers into their lawns.

“The idea is more than grass. You get a lot of colour,” she said. “Some people would argue lawns are passé. More people, especially gardeners, are converting lawns into flower beds.” A number of people are also choosing to plant vegetables gardens in their yards instead of grass. “The whole idea with lawns is they are really a lot of work,” she said about lawns. “Not just work, but it is a lot of water.” With people being encouraged to avoid insecticides, Forsythe said that flowers provide a viable alternative to lawns. “It’s going to be more and more difficult to maintain a golf-green lawn,” she said. “This is an alternative.” The New Westminster Horticultural Society’s annual plant sale takes place on Sunday, May 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Armoury at 530 Queens Ave. Free parking is available at city hall.

Priest: ‘It’s just a volatile combination’ ◗ continued from page 1

for the Oblates. “There is a process. Was this one followed? There’s discussions you’ve seen in the print regarding the Oblates and the Archdiocese, and I’ll leave it at that.” “He’s not in active ministry. That’s the bottom line,” Meilleur added. Asked if McCann could return to a congregation, Meilleur said it was doubtful. “I would suspect not. At his age, he should be retired and doing what retired Oblates do,” Rob Talach, a London, Ont. lawyer who represents survivors of sexual abuse within the church, said McCann’s quiet reentry into active ministry is egregious but not surprising. “It’s typical,” he said. “It’s completely absurd that he would return to such a role. If you mix the power and authority he had with access to children that the job involves, it’s just a volatile combination.”

Talach said the church should have fired McCann immediately after his guilty plea. “If you had a kindergarten teacher convicted of sexually abusing some of their students, she or he would be fired,” he said. Talach said it typically takes decades for a victim of sexual assault to come forward, which make makes their suffering worse over time. “Talk to somebody, because part of the damage of sexual assault is leaving it bottled up inside. Share it with a loved one or doctor or counsellor. Go to the police if you feel that’s something that should be done,” he said. “These people that are out there, be it the victim of a priest of a victim of whoever, they really need to consider speaking up because it helps them and it helps society and it definitely helps bring justice to the perpetrator.” www.twitter.com/BrentRichter

School of hard knocks: Grade 11 student Steven Heer plays a bully and Grade 12 student Amanda Smith one of his victims in a new play by New Westminster Secondary School students that’s being presented through the Rock Solid program.

When words become weapons

NWSS students tackle bullying through drama in new Rock Solid production BY JULIE MACLELLAN REPORTER jmaclellan@royalcityrecord.com

“High school is war. But instead of guns The weapons are words.” The words are spoken by a slim teenage girl who’s biting her lip and half-hiding behind the dark straight hair that falls around her face. She stands in front of a classroom, reciting her poetry. Behind her, students are slouching, making faces, muttering insults. Her name is Christina, and she is being bullied. The poignant moment is just one scene in the newest offering from the Rock Solid program in New Westminster Secondary School’s drama department. The students are gathered in Colin Mackay’s drama class for the last week of rehearsals before they hit the Massey Theatre stage with their spring production. Rock Solid, offered in conjunction with the school and the New Westminster Police

Service, is an anti-bullying program that aims to raise awareness of the problems around bullying and help students deal with it. One of the ways it does that is through the awareness-raising plays written and performed by students. A fall production was offered to elementary school students, while the spring production is aimed at high school students and the general public. This year’s play follows the story of Adam, a teenage boy who becomes a bully after failing to find a way to fit in at his new high school. In a series of vignettes narrated by a future, older Adam, it traces Adam’s path as his life intersects with those of others – his fellow bullies, the autistic student they torment, the girl he dates, his own little sister. The 45-minute production tackles the dilemmas facing high school students with both humour and sensitivity. It doesn’t shy away from unkind language and tough situations, but it also makes the point that much “bullying” happens on a subtler level. “Bullying is a broad term. Sometimes it’s undetectable, like eye-rolling,” Adam’s older self notes in the play. It’s a message the students have taken

an important part of getting that message to heart. Grade 11 student Steven Heer, who plays out. In the storyline, he’s a “ghost in the Adam, laughs a little when asked what it crowd,” he says, so he doesn’t get to influence the events happening on stage. was like to be cast as the bully. “I can’t affect what they are doing, but I “It was a huge surprise,” he says, noting that his character does some things that he can affect the audience,” he says. “It gives me a lot of freedom.” would never consider doing.

Art for Eva finds a new home THE LIVELY CITY JULIE MACLELLAN

A

n artistic tribute to Eva Markvoort is finding a home at B.C. Children’s Hospital. Cystic Fibrosis Canada, Vancouver Chapter and the B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation are holding a gala unveiling of 65 Red Roses today (May 11) in the main lobby of the hospital. 65 Red Roses, as many will know by now, is a tribute to Eva – the young New Westminster woman who inspired the world through her 65_RedRoses blog as she chronicled her life with cystic fibrosis and raised awareness of the need for organ donation. Eva passed away on March 27, 2010.

Men wanted

“65 Roses” is also used as a name for cystic fibrosis because small children can’t pronounce the name – Eva added “red” because it was her favourite colour. The artwork was born in May 2010, when 65 Canadian artists each contributed a wooden tile with their own interpretation of a single red rose as a tribute to Eva. The tiles were assembled into a 5.5by 10-foot painting, 65 Red Roses. So far, the art has raised more than $200,000 for Cystic Fibrosis Canada. May, by the way, is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month. For more details, see www.cfvancouver.ca.

Poets honoured

For Eva: A close-up of some of the 65 single tiles involved in 65 Red Roses, which is being unveiled in its new home at B.C. Children’s Hospital this week.

The Rivershed Society of B.C. is seeking young leaders who are looking to make the “trip of a lifetime” down the Fraser River. The society is offering scholarships to 10 young leaders to take part in the Sustainable Living Leadership program that will take place from Aug. 4 to

28. During that time, they will travel by canoe, raft and on foot down the Fraser, which becomes a classroom for this intensive nature-based outdoor education program. “The Sustainable Living Leadership Program is a great way for our youth to learn about

the issues threatening the health of the Fraser River, the salmon and our culture, and how they can become part of the solution,” said Sharolise Baker, fisheries manager with Stellat’en First Nation and a longtime supporter of the program. The trip begins near Mount

Robson, in the Fraser’s headwaters, and finishes 1,400 kilometres later, near the river’s mouth in Vancouver. Along the way, participants take in breathtaking scenery and see wildlife including eagles, bears, big horn sheep and salmon. “The Sustainable Living

Leadership program is about applying what you learn on the trip, to your community,” said Fin Donnelly, founder of the Rivershed Society of B.C. To apply, submit your online application to the society before the May 20 deadline. See www. rivershed.com.

Moonrakers helps send kids to camp AROUND TOWN

THERESA MCMANUS

C

ustomers of Moonrakers Pub are helping to send some underprivileged kids to summer camp. The uptown pub recently hosted a Send Kids to Camp luncheon, which saw $5 from every meal sold during the April 21 lunch being donated to Fraserside Community Services summer camp program.

The pub raised $400 for the program. Each year Fraserside helps sends 150 kids to camp, but it’s worried it may not be able to send as many kids to camp this year without community support because of the difficult economic times.

Help for Hyacks

New Westminster Hyacks head football coach Farhan Lalji recently received a large donation of $1,600 from an unexpected source. “One of the kids I coached at Burnaby Central, Alex Frau, is now a manager at the Terminal Pub (on 12th Street) and they held fundraisers dur-

ing the NFL season,” said Lalji. “It was totally unexpected, and this will definitely help.” The money will go toward the high school and community football programs in the Royal City. The senior team is also fundraising for a preseason training trip to Southern California. Do you have an item for Around Town? Send ideas to Theresa, tmcmanus@royalcity record.com.

Have you discovered your life’s vocation? myths. These heroes are called to a great personal challenge, and their success is judged by how they answer that call. Great fiction – in print or on the screen – is, by definition, not factual but speaks the truth about human nature and life. We are most moved when they seem to speak to us personally, echoing the drama in our own lives. As a physician, I accompany my patients along their personal journeys and have the privilege of guiding them through the stages and milestones of their lives – preparing for a baby, coping as new parents, living through grief, resolving marital discord, managing anxiety, finding a way through depression,

s children, our role models are often famous performers, action heroes and worldclass athletes. We look up to great achievers – awardwinning authors and successful business leaders. Yet we all know that that level of achievement often comes with a price. Their lives are often out of balance. Another type of hero is the protagonist in Shakespearean drama, novels, movies and classical

adapting to chronic health conditions and facing the end of life. When I speak to young people trying to decide on the direction of their lives and others at the crossroads of midlife, I talk about their calling. I take out my prescription pad but instead of prescribing a medication, I draw three intersecting circles, borrowing a concept from Jim Collins business classic From Good to Great. The first circle represents your talents – what you do better than everyone else. The second represents your passions – what you love to do, what you’d be willing to do for free, and what you can do for hours at a time without tiring. The third represents the needs of the world around you.

The intersection of these circles is your calling – your vocation. This is what you were meant to do. This model seems so clear and simple, yet we know life is not so simple. At many points in our lives, the circles we draw do not intersect. We have not yet discovered our talents or invested the necessary time and effort to develop them. Our passions, preoccupations and obsessions lie outside the other two circles. We may need to search within and define our greatest values and a new sense of meaning. If we have been primarily focused on our own concerns, we may fail to see the needs all around us. Looking outside and work-

ing for something bigger than ourselves can move us towards our true calling. Real life is unpredictable. We have dreams and we can make plans, but one thing we can predict is the inevitable intervention of the unforeseen. For my patients, often I am the bearer of bad news. There is a spot on the scan that we should investigate. You’ve just been diagnosed with a chronic condition. Accidents can happen. Your calling will change as new needs arise in your life, and you can find deeper meaning in new ways. What life reveals at these times is often a greater calling – the calling of care. Caregivers are family members and friends who rise to the challenge of this very

personal call. To celebrate Family Caregivers Week, I’ll be speaking at the Paetzold Health Education Centre, Jim Pattison Pavilion in Vancouver General Hospital on Thursday, May 12 at 7 p.m. as part of A Celebration for Family Caregivers. It’s sponsored by the United Way, the Alzheimer Society of British Columbia, the Parkinson Society British Columbia, Vancouver Coastal Health, and the Stroke Recovery Association of British Columbia. To RSVP for free but limited seating, call 604-877-4650 or email bulent.hasan@vch.ca. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a physician and writer. Find him on Twitter @drdavidicuwong.

Three locals taken in WHL bantam draft

BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

It took until the seventh round for a Burnaby Winter Club product to be taken in Thursday’s WHL bantam draft, but Lucas Mercer was worth the wait for the Vancouver Giants. The 6-3, 170-pound defenceman was taken 133rd overall by the local WHL squad with a pick it got from Calgary in the Misha Fisenko trade several years ago. Mercer’s size was something the Giants didn’t want to pass up. “He’s a project,” said Giants media relations spokesperson Dan Elliott. “He was consistently improving this year and he’s got a good stick, with lots of reach.” Elliott said the Port Moody native has to work on his skating, but there’s a lot of upside for the big defender. Mercer’s winter club coach was John Batchelor, who also works as a scout for the Medicine Hat Tigers. “He’s a good project,” said Batchelor. “He’s going to be 6-5 or more, and he’s already come a long way.” Batchelor said Mercer’s skating will improve as he grows into his body. “With kids growing that fast, they’re always catching up with how their muscles and bones are growing,” said Batchelor. “He’ll grow into his body. His skating already got a lot better as the year went on.” Batchelor said the Tigers were looking at Mercer at about the time the Giants took him, and one thing Mercer had going for him is he really wanted to play in the WHL. “I tell the kids that when they’re talking to teams, they have to be honest what their plans are,” said Batchelor. “Do they want to go the U.S. college route or do they want to play major junior? Lucas told them straight up he wanted to play in the WHL.” Mercer’s teammate on the blueline, Victor Dombrovskiy, fell to the eighth round, 156th overall to Swift Current. Dombrovskiy is still deciding what his future will be. “Vic’s going to be a good player wherever he goes,” said Batchelor of the 5-10 167-pound puck-moving defenceman.

Larry Wright/THE RECORD

Draft pick: Puck-moving defender Victor Dombrovskiy, seen here in action last winter, was picked in the eighth round of the WHL Bantam Draft by the Swift Current Broncos. Dombrovskiy and two other BWC products, including defender Lucas Mercer and power forward Brandon Delgrosso were chosen last Thursday. Dombrovskiy scored the winning goal in the Western bantam championships in April, and winter club general manager Len McNeely has nothing but good things to say about the smooth-skating defender. “Victor’s very smart and intelligent,” said McNeely. “He’ll be quite a player.” If Dombrovskiy does end up in Swift Current, he will have some big Burnaby shoes to fill in that city, as retired NHL superstar Joe Sakic learned his craft there. The third winter club product taken was Brandon Delgrosso, 191st overall to

the Moose Jaw Warriors. “Brandon’s a big, aggressive winger who works hard in the corners,” said Batchelor. “What he needs to work on is he’s got a great shot and he has to get it off a little quicker. He can become a big power forward, but he has to get his shot off quicker.” Batchelor said he was hesitant to recommend some of his players to the Tigers because he has been burned in the past by players who eventually end up going the U.S. college route.

’Bellies defeat Islanders BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

You could almost hear the sigh of relief from head coach Dan Perreault after the New Westminster Jr. Salmonbellies 7-2 win over the Delta Islanders on May 3. The New Westminster squad had dropped its first two games and was in danger of going to 0-3 for the year but a third period hat trick from Mark Negrin, his second straight game with three goals, propelled the Salmonbellies to their first win of the year. “After those first two losses, nobody was happy,” said Perreault. “But we had a good practice (Monday) and the guys were pretty focused. I thought the team played well and we got a good result.” The Salmonbellies, manhandled 13-

7 in Victoria Sunday after a seasonopening 9-4 home loss to Coquitlam, got the only goal of the first period, from Jeff Sproule at 13:51. Quinn Mackay extended the lead to two before Mike Mallory cut the margin to one for the Islanders. Leif Mydske restored the two-goal lead before Chris Jones closed the gap for Delta. New Westminster pulled away in the third period, scoring all three goals, including Negrin’s hat trick and a single from Brandon Goodwin. Mydske and Mackay finished the night with three points each. “Mark’s shooting the ball well,” said Perreault. “He’s an offensive player and right now, he’s one of the guys we need to score for us.” That’s because the Jr. Bellies are missing eight players who are still at

school and two who are on the injured list. “We should have Justin Salt back from injury for our next game,” said Perreault. “He’s chomping at the bit to get back in there with the boys.” Perreault wasn’t making any complaints about a front-loaded schedule that just got easier when a May 5 visit to Langley got rescheduled to June because of an arena conflict. “It’s kind of the way it is,” said Perreault of the schedule that has seen his squad play three games already while Burnaby has only played once. “The good thing is we get a chance to see some of the other guys play and try and earn a spot.” The Jr. Salmonbellies are off until a May 10 home date at 8 p.m. (after Record deadlines) against the Port Coquitlam Saints. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

“I can’t put my word on the line if kids are non-commital,” said Batchelor. “I know lots of teams liked our players. We won a championship with them, so they’re good players.” The first overall pick in the WHL bantam draft, to the cellar-dwelling Calgary Hitmen, was Abbotsford winger Jake Virtanen, who had 70 goals in 68 games. The Giants’ first pick was playmaking Alberta centre Thomas Foster, who Elliott said can develop into a first-line centre. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

Track team on top Beating UBC is becoming second nature for Simon Fraser University’s track and field team. For the second straight year, the Clan captured the Achilles Cup, beating the Thunderbirds 122100 to improve to 5-3-1 all-time against UBC. Junior Helen Crofts won both the 400 and 1,500 metres with times of 56.81 and 4:45.91, respectively, while Brianna Kane won the 800m in 2:15.80. Senior Breanne Carter won the 200m in 25.83. SFU’s 4x400m team of Emma Vogt, Kane, Olivia Brennan and Crofts took first place. In the shot put, Jade Richardson won with 10.61m. On the men’s side, Andrew Boss won the 200m with a time of 21.77. Senior Ryan Brockerville beat out UBC’s Jordan Smith in the 1,500m by nearly three seconds, winning with a time of 3:55.64. SFU also won the 4x100m relay as the team of Boss, Montrose, Dennis Nicolas and Zach Conard beat their cross-town rivals with a time of 43.47. The Clan also captured the 4x400m relay as Boss and Montrose teamed up with Travis Vugteveen and Yubai Liu to finish in 3:23.04. The Clan are now preparing for the NAIA nationals in Marion, Indiana from May 26 to 28.

Burnaby Lake Rugby Club wins two titles BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

The Burnaby Lake Rugby Club went two-for-two in West Vancouver on a rainy Saturday when the First Division men lifted the Ceili’s Cup and the women’s Premiership side completed an undefeated season and took home the Harris Memorial Cup. The women had a thrilling 17-13 win over the Velox Valkyries that was punctuated by Melissa Miyazaki scoring an intercept try in the dying seconds for the winning margin over the third-ranked Valkyries. Burnaby Lake finished 10-0 for the season and got out to a strong start in a torrential rainstorm at Klahanie Park. Burnaby led 10-3 at the half on tries by Maria Gallo and Lindsay Bernrot. Jane Cruttenden kicked a penalty for Velox’s only first half points. In the second half, Cruttenden notched a try, a conversion and a penalty to give Velox a 13-10 lead into the dying minutes of the match. Burnaby, with visions of its undefeated season going up in smoke, was attacking in full force and their efforts eventually were rewarded when Miyazaki scored the game-winning try. The conversion was kicked by Becky Querido for the final 17-13 score line. The provincial title was Burnaby’s first since last lifting the Harris Memorial Cup in 2009. The Burnaby first division men then followed up in the Ceili’s Cup Final with a

10-8 win over James Bay AA of Victoria. Like their female counterparts, the Burnaby men had to come from behind to win their championship. James Bay had an 8-3 lead heading into the final minutes with a try from Jim De Goede and a penalty from Kyle Laberge. Burnaby had been trailing, with their only three points courtesy of a penalty kick from Carlos Periera. As the clock approached 80 minutes, Burnaby’s Brad McHugh barrelled through a line of defenders to tie the game at 8-8. Nolan Shelley then stepped up to the plate and converted to give Burnaby a 10-8 victory and deny James Bay their third straight provincial First Division championship. In the Canadian Direct Insurance Premier League final, Oak Bay’s Castaway Wanderers downed Meraloma Rugby Club 20-3 to lift their first Rounsefell Cup since 2002. In two other championships played at Brockton Oval at Stanley Park, New Westminster and Coquitlam based United RFC won the men’s league 1 final 128 over Port Alberni, while also beating Surrey 20-15 in the men’s league 2 final. In the league 1 final, United nursed a 7-3 halftime lead before notching a crucial second half try for the 12-8 win over the Port Alberni Black Sheep. In the league 2 final, United fended off a resilient Surrey Beavers side. Man-of-thematch Curtis Giffin had all three United tries, while tries from Surrey’s Brian Smart and Aaron Viola almost reversed a 10-3 halftime score.
