NEWS BRIEFS BROWNE RETIRES

READING FOR ADULTS

CANADA DAY AT THE PARK

A dual-degree in business administration finance from Douglas College was handed out at the Heilongjiang Institute of Science and Technology (HIST) in Harbin, China last Thursday. B.C. Minister of Advanced Education Naomi Yamamoto spoke to the 137 graduates who earned the Douglas College diploma in financial services, the HIST bachelor of economics and management and the Douglas bachelor of administration degree. The dualdegree has been offered since 2003.

Shirley Browne has retired after serving 29 years as the chief executive officer of the Kiwanis Care Society in New Westminster. In a release, the society said Browne “dedicated her career to our clients, their families and our community.”

Summer is a time to have the taste senses come alive, including A Taste for Reading, a reading program for adults from the New Westminster Public Library that runs July 2 to Aug. 13. Those with a taste for reading can win prizes for listing their favourite book of the summer. Ballots are available online at www.nwpl.ca. At summer’s end the library will publish a list of the city’s favourite books.

Canada Day 2011 will be celebrated in New Westminster with A Canadian Kaleidoscope at the Queen’s Park Bandshell from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Activities celebrating the country’s 144th birthday include Michael Mitchell, songs and stories of Canada’s heritage; cellist Tate Zawadiuk; the A Capella Fellas; a formal ceremony and lunch box auction (12:50 p.m.), and the Blue Meenies party band (2:30-3:30).

Traffic control boom has its perils By Grant Granger NEWSLEADER

D

on Lowe has a relative in Edmonton who, after finding out he trains traffic control persons (TCPs), said to him, “I don’t know why you need them. You stick a shovel in the ground, the driver sees it and goes around it. Are people blind?” Lowe, the owner of DL Safety Consulting in Burnaby, can only shake his head at his relative’s outdated notion, although it was the prevailing attitude until about a decade ago. In the last few years, it’s become apparent the Lower Mainland now has two seasons, rainy and road construction. It’s almost impossible, even taking a trip to the corner store, to avoid delay caused by construction. Worksites range from mega-projects like the Highway 1/Port Mann Bridge rebuild, to filling a pothole or trimming trees. “A few years ago there was not much flagging at all,” says Lowe. In 2003, it became mandatory for TCPs to undertake a two-day certification course, and in recent years their numbers have grown dramatically. More than 3,600 were trained in 2008, and by 2010 there were 6,000. Last month alone there were 900 to be certified. “That’s been the largest

number for one month since we started,” says Starlett Bluhm, TCP program coordinator for the New Westminster-based B.C. Construction Safety Alliance (BCCSA). “There’s more construction on the road and more flaggers out there.”

Injury reports up With so many people in the way of traffic, there has been a corresponding boom in the number of injuries— and even fatalities—to flagpersons. In 2000, there were just seven traffic control claims processed by WorkSafeBC. From 2008 to 2010, it accepted 44 claims from TCPs struck by vehicles or mobile equipment, two of them fatalities. On the Lougheed Highway in Mission last July, a flagger was hit and dragged underneath a Jeep about 50 metres. Another TCP was struck by a vehicle and killed at a job site in Fort Langley in 2008. “It just turns your stomach,” says Lowe about those accidents. “Traffic control is a dangerous issue,” adds Bluhm. “Flaggers are on the road protecting traffic, the workers behind them, as well as their safety.” Pay for the position ranges from minimum wage to $21 an hour, depending on skill level, experience and the location. “There should be a danger pay rate,” admits Lowe.

MARIO BARTEL/NEWSLEADER

Breanna Basterash, a flagger for D.L. Safety Consulting, demonstrates how she unloads traffic pylons when setting up a lane closure.

The industry is so worried about the hazards it has tried to get the public to pay attention in order to reduce the peril with organizations like the BCCSA, WorkSafeBC and the BCAA sponsoring the Slow Down and Cone Zone campaigns. BCCSA recently set up a traffic control advisory committee, which met for the first time last week, to look at various ways to improve the TCP training.

How to stay in control The current certification course Lowe and many others teach provides techniques to make it safer for the public and the TCPs. “The main thing is the flagger must provide them-

selves an escape route,” says Lowe, who charges $252 for the course. To figure one out, though, can be a challenge because every site is different. A game plan must to be developed to determine where to set up the cones, where to stand, where to direct traffic, and much more. For some of the bigger projects, an engineer has to sign off on the traffic plan before work can begin. Making eye contact with drivers is important, says Lowe. If the driver smiles, then smile back. But if they yell, remain calm. “If you yell back you just accelerate the situation. You just have to say sorry you

feel that way,” says Lowe. Out on the road, Lowe has noticed a distinctive difference in drivers in many areas of the Lower Mainland. Burnaby is much slower paced. “It has streets like Kingsway where you have to go from light to light to light.” Drivers in Richmond, he claims, have trouble seeing past their windshield. In North Vancouver, they’re very friendly. Vancouver folks easily develop road rage. And those in Surrey just like to drive fast. The drivers, he says, have to be aware the TCPs must follow the rules of the road. Even when it appears to make sense to help out drivers they may not be able to. For example, Lowe recalls one time a TCP was holding up traffic on West Fourth Avenue in Vancouver for a crane with a suspended load. To keep the traffic somewhat flowing, the flagger allowed vehicles to detour via the next residential street, which was against the rules and the company got dinged $1,800 by the City of Vancouver. With such a high demand, Lowe isn’t wanting for work, either as a trainer or as a supplier of TCPs. “I’m not calling them, they’re calling me,” says Lowe, whose company has gone from no employees to 44 in three years. “It really took off.” ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

DOUGLAS GIVES DEGREES IN CHINA

NO CANADA DAY FIREWORKS There will be no fireworks over New Westminster on Canada Day. The Hyack Festival Association, organizers of the show the previous two years, have not been able to find the funding to put it on. They first put it on in 2009 as part of New Westminster’s 150th birthday party, and although it was only intended as a one-year deal the association did it again last year. They were shot from a spot in Queensborough opposite the Quay. But the growing development there didn’t not make that practical any longer, said Hyack executive director Melanie Vogel. The alternative was to stage it from a barge in the Fraser River. But there are higher costs involved in doing that and the association came $1,500 short. The city and Celebrate Canada, a federal government program, only provided funding in the first year because of the anniversary, Vogel said. Hyack also produces firework shows for its own festival in May and for FraserFest. There is enough sponsorship to go ahead at this year’s version of FraserFest, July 22-24, said Vogel.

Wally Coe’s coffee run had an extra bite to it last Thursday morning. Coe, 70, went to the Tim Hortons outlet at the Esso at Sixth Street and Eighth Avenue to pick up a coffee and a donut about 10 a.m. As he was leaving, he held the door open for a woman as she walked in. The next thing he knew a dog had jumped on him and bit his hand and chest, knocking him down. “It happened so fast that all I can remember is a ‘grrrr’ and then [being treated] inside,” said Coe, a long-time New Westminster resident. “This dog hit me full force in the chest. “I can’t believe you walk out of a Tim Hortons and a dog is in your face. It was horrifying.”

MARIO BARTEL/NEWSLEADER

Wally Coe says dog owners should take more responsibility for their animals after he was bitten by a pit bull in uptown New Westminster.

New Westminster police say the dog, a mixture of several breeds, was tied to a garbage can at the time it lunged at Coe. Coe said the dog was about 2 1/2 feet high and left the welt the size of a softball on the left side of his chest, and teeth marks on his hand and chest. He went to a local clinic for medical care. Police said the owner turned the dog

City Contact: Development Services Department at 604-527-4556. Inspection of Documents: A copy of the proposed bylaws may be inspected at Legislative Services.

Gary Weishaar. Coe was thankful some witnesses came to his aid after the attack, and said he came forward to tell his story because he worried it could happen to someone else, with the results much worse if it had been a small child. “The public should know about this so they can be aware of any dogs around that could attack,” said Coe. ggranger@ newwestnewsleader.com

—EDITORIAL—

Canada’s flag beloved It’s hard to believe Canada’s flag, the Maple Leaf, was the subject of contentious and divisive debate before it was adopted in 1965 to replace the venerable Red Ensign. It has now become one of our most beloved symbols, and it’s one of the most recognized flags in the world. In fact, travelers still abide by the rule of thumb that when venturing to difficult lands, a Canadian flag sewn onto a lapel or backpack will enhance their safety. But it almost didn’t happen. When Prime Minister Lester Pearson decided it was time for Canada to have its own distinct flag, the leader of the opposition Conservatives, John Diefenbaker, would have none of it. Despite clinging to a slim minority government, Pearson persisted. A committee was formed, designs commissioned then discussed, and the rest is history. But in an of itself a flag is just a graphic design. It’s how a country’s citizens see themselves, and how they carry themselves in the world that imparts a flag with meaning. In that regard, George F.G. Stanley’s design, an 11-point red maple leaf on a field of white bracketed by two red bars, has been an overwhelming success. Today, when the Maple Leaf flutters in the breeze, we think of an expansive land of disparate natural beauty, populated by welcoming, tolerant, hard-working and fair-minded people. We feel pride as a place of peace. We value and celebrate the various cultures that have found their way here. We revel in our role as an international underdog, in diplomatic and athletic pursuits. We’re humble to a fault. As a statesman and diplomat, Pearson likely already knew all this. That’s why he felt confident enough to press on, risking his government. Canada already had an identity; we just needed our own symbol to identify with.

If the HST is a conspiracy, it’s a mighty big one. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon never tires of reminding people that 140 countries already have value-added taxes, including China and those other Asia-Pacific tigers that are dominating the world economy. • Douglas College in New Westminster and the Heilongjiang Institute of Science and Technology in Harbin, China have celebrated the graduation of 137 students in their dual-degree business administration program. The program began in 2003, with an exchange of instructors. At the Harbin campus, students take 52 courses to qualify them as specialists in global financial markets and international banking. • By last year, there were 94,000 international students in K-12, post-secondary and language schools in B.C. According to the advanced education ministry, if considered an export service, international education is B.C.’s fifth largest export, accounting for seven per cent of exports from the province. Meanwhile in B.C., discussion of international trade still tends to revolve around lumber and logs. And according to a recent poll, Vander Zalm is still considered by many to be an authority on trade and taxes. It’s time to join the world’s adult conversation. ■ Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com

Re: Board hiding behind survey on lunch-hour issue: Cook (NewsLeader, June 24) It’s 2:45—school’s out at Lord Tweedsmuir. C (Child): Gramma, I’m so hungry, did you bring a big snack? G (Gramma): Did you finish your lunch? C: I didn’t eat it. G: Why? C: It went too fast. G: Can’t you take it to the playground? C: It isn’t allowed. G: Isn’t there a snack time? C: GRAMMA, NO.

Let’s move forward on HST It seems that the strongest argument the HST opponents have on their side is that facts (and opinions) on the tax should have been on the table for consideration and debate when it was first proposed. It’s hard to disagree with that. Many people were—and still are—ticked off with the way it was brought in. So while it’s true that many people wish that the HST had never been introduced, it is no longer an abstract, philosophical argument. The HST is a reality, and it is the reality that we need to deal with in the referendum. Just think of the real costs to the province, its businesses and taxpayers if the HST is axed and replaced with both a provincial and a federal tax. There will be enormous disruption and cost to businesses that have developed computer and accounting systems, built their supply chains with the HST in mind, and developed business plans around it. Changing tax systems is expensive, which is why the province received $1.6 billion from the feds to help pay for the reform. We should also worry about paying back the $1.6 billion to the federal government if we revert to the PST. The federal government is willing to play ball with the province to ensure it can lower the overall rate from 12 to 10 per cent, but make no mistake about what will happen if the HST is rescinded. There will be no forgiveness of this money owed, and the feds cannot and will not ignore the bill. It is written into the agreement, and it will be paid. Finally, by voting YES in the referendum, the overall tax rate will not go down. There is no amount of wishful thinking that can change the fact that going back to two taxes instead of one will be disruptive and expensive. That’s the reality. Hon. Chuck Strahl Former MP Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon

There wasn’t time before we had to go out. Students leaving school pale, hungry, more tired than necessary because they have not had nutrition is just not right. Put the students first, let them go to the bathroom and wash their hands before the few minutes allotted for eating. This needs to be resolved before the first day of school for the young ones, especially the kindergarten and Grade 1 students arriving eager, happy and excited.

Re: Tax my car, not my income (BC Views, NewsLeader, June 15) Tom Fletcher can nitpick all he wants about the proper identification of the government’s July 2010 tax increase on private vehicle sales. As an alternative, maybe his beloved government should have considered rescinding the dealer tax on used vehicles. Most people buy used cars and other used products because they can’t afford to buy new. In reality, this is just another tax that hits those who can least afford it. And that gets to my biggest beef with the HST. It’s a regressive tax that will hit lower and middle income families the hardest— despite some relief for those families with the very lowest incomes. The HST’s overall impact will be to reduce demand from those that don’t have the discretionary income to absorb the tax increases. It will tend to decrease overall economic activity. The HST’s chief beneficiaries are those large, capitalintensive, multinational corporations that are getting the reduced taxes. A lot of their products aren’t even sold in British Columbia. It’s doubtful that B.C. families are going to see much price reduction, and the Independent Panel’s estimated increase of 24,400 jobs over the next nine years is not exactly going to boom the economy. After slogging through all the statistics, graphs, and pie-charts concerning the HST, one thing struck me: The province raises 14 per cent of its money from the HST, 14 per cent from personal income taxes, and only four per cent from corporate income taxes. The province spends 42 per cent of its revenues on health and 27 per cent on education. Corporations benefit greatly from an educated and healthy workforce. It reduces their training costs, and unlike companies in the U.S. they don’t have to shell out huge amounts for heath insurance. That in itself provides a big cost advantage for B.C. companies. So why aren’t these companies paying their fair share? Over the years our government has increasingly catered to the values of Wall Street and Madison Avenue. You know—those buzzing, little stick people on TV. Now, if only it could rediscover Main Street. Mike Divine New Westminster

More park space and low income housing may be part of the plan for the 7.5-acre lot where a combined sewer overflow (CSO) facility was built just a few years ago east of the Kruger paper factory. “There is an agreement between the city and the GVRD to develop the park,” said Coun. Bill Harper. “The question is what to do with it.” City planners will be meeting with Metro Vancouver to discuss the future Poplar Landing Park, and plan to update city council in the next two to three months, said the city’s chief planner Lisa Spitale. “We have to look at principles of the previous work and what community workshops were saying about affordable housing and sustainability,” said Spitale, adding that the Downtown Community Plan will also be taken into consideration. Environmentally friendly practices will be incorporated into the project, much like the award-winning CSO operations building, which was designed to showcase sustainability, she added.

NEWSLEADER FILE

New Westminster’s combined sewer overflow operations building, designed by Eric Pattison (pictured), won a green building award from the Canadian Wood Council in 2008. The city expects to begin planning the future of 7.5-acre parcel the building sits on this fall.

That structure, built with wood and other materials reclaimed from an old Vancouver sawmill, was designed by New Westminster architect Eric Pattison and won a green building award from the Canadian Wood Council in 2008. The operations building sits above a massive underground holding tank, built in partnership with the GVRD to minimize the overflow of untreated storm water into the Fraser River. Though the city forged an agreement with Metro Vancouver for the CSO site several years ago, plans for the park have been set aside to focus on other, higher priority projects such as the Westminster Pier

Park, said Harper. “We are going to see if the city and (Metro) are still interested in going forward in the same way it was talked about eight or nine years ago,” he said. Due to the complexity of the project, the planning process could take anywhere from eight months to three years, Harper added. Issues with the riverfront, Metro facilities and the ratio of park space to housing will also raise questions. Ultimately, Harper said he hopes to see the lot developed to serve multiple uses. “Personally I would like to see a riverside park with a number of affordable housing units.”

New Burr taking shape

The good life

By Nicole Clark

isn’t about

CONTRIBUTOR

The Burr Theatre will finally be restored to its former glory by the end of July, says Lafflines Comedy Club owner Barry Buckland. That’s when renovations will be completed and Lafflines will make the move from its Fourth Street location to the historic theatre at 530 Columbia St. “I did whatever I could to bring it back to its original state,” said Buckland. The design plan includes rich gold tones to bring out the detailed architecture of the building, Buckland said, adding that his team consulted old photographs and worked with the New Westminster Heritage Preservation Society to keep the design true to its original decor. “It looks like an old 1940s cabaret-style theatre. It’s very rich looking.” James Lickers, Lafflines’ talent and event manager, describes the interior as regal, with gold, crimson and peacock-blue accents. But the outside is still a work in progress, Lickers said. “We are still playing with ideas about the exterior, there’s three or four options we are toying with. Now we are checking cost, functionality and effectiveness.” PLEASE SEE LAFFLINES ON A17

CANADADAY CANADA DAY

&DQDGD'D\-XO\ DP²SP ,W¡VD3DUW\

Moments in Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history Canada has been its own dominion since 1867. Since that time, Canada has witnessed its fair share of memorable moments and remarkable history. Some of the more memorable moments in Canadian history include: â&#x20AC;˘ July 1, 1867. The day it all began, July 1 is celebrated as Canada Day throughout the country because on this day 144 years ago Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s North American colonies ofďŹ cially united as the Dominion of Canada. â&#x20AC;˘ 1873: The North-West Mounted Police are formed. Canadians and many others across the globe commonly refer to these ofďŹ cials as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mounties.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘ 1875: Jennie Kidd Trout becomes the ďŹ rst licenced female physician in Canada. â&#x20AC;˘ 1885: The North-West Rebellion, an ultimately unsuccessful uprising by the Metis people of Saskatchewan against the Dominion of Canada, occurs. â&#x20AC;˘ 1898: The Klondike Gold Rush, a frenzied gold rush immigration in the Yukon district of Canada, hits full swing. â&#x20AC;˘ 1900: Reginald Fessenden, who was born in Canada, makes what might have been the ďŹ rst wireless radio broadcast. â&#x20AC;˘ 1903: Canada loses the Alaska boundary dispute to the United States. Though the loss created disappointment and anger among Canadians, those feelings were directed more toward the British government, whom many Canadians felt betrayed Canadian interests. â&#x20AC;˘ 1909: The ďŹ rst Grey Cup is played. The championship of the Canadian Football League, the Grey Cup was ďŹ rst won by the University of Toronto Varsity Blues, who defeated the Toronto Parkdale Canoe Club on December 4. â&#x20AC;˘ 1916: The Canadian Parliament Buildings ďŹ re occurs on a freezing February night in Ottawa. â&#x20AC;˘ 1920: Canada joins the League of Nations. â&#x20AC;˘ 1925: Women in Newfoundland receive the right to vote. â&#x20AC;˘ 1935: The Bank of Canada, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s central bank, opens under private ownership. â&#x20AC;˘ 1937: Trans-Canada Air Lines, today known as Air Canada, begins regular ďŹ&#x201A;ights.

â&#x20AC;˘ 1939: Canada, after initially remaining neutral, declares war on Germany, joining World War II. â&#x20AC;˘ 1952: Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst television stations begin part-time broadcasts in Montreal and Toronto. â&#x20AC;˘ 1956: The Canadian Labour Congress, the central labour body in English Canada, is formed. â&#x20AC;˘ 1960: The Quiet Revolution, a period of intense change in Quebec that continues to inspire controversy today, begins. â&#x20AC;˘ 1961: Wayne Gretzky, who many consider the greatest hockey player of all-time, is born in Ontario. â&#x20AC;˘ 1966: The Munsinger Affair becomes Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst political sex scandal. â&#x20AC;˘ 1975: The CN Tower in Toronto becomes the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tallest freestanding structure. â&#x20AC;˘ 1977: Quebec passes Bill 101, which restricted English schooling to the children of parents who had been educated in English schools.

â&#x20AC;˘ 1992: The Toronto Blue Jays become the ďŹ rst team from outside the United States to win Major League Baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Series. They would repeat their series win a year later. â&#x20AC;˘ 2000: The Clarity Act, outlining the terms of Quebecâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s separation from Canada, is passed. â&#x20AC;˘ 2010: Vancouver hosts the Winter Olympics, during which Canada wins 14 gold medals.

Foreign buyers a fraction of housing market By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

Foreign investors make up a tiny share of the Lower Mainland real estate market but tend to buy much more expensive homes. Those are the latest conclusions of researchers at Urban Futures who found just 0.4 per cent of all homes sold in the region in 2010 were bought by owners with a foreign mailing address. “We’re dealing with pretty small numbers here,” Urban Futures economist Ryan Berlin said, adding the proportion rises to 0.7 per cent when just condos and apartments are considered. Realtors have anecdotally reported an influx of foreign buyers from mainland China and there’s been growing debate on whether the phenomenon is driving housing prices up and hurting home affordability. Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney recently said an influx of Asian wealth is leading to some “extreme” valuations in Vancouver’s housing market. Berlin simply doesn’t see the evidence. “There’s very little hard data out there that shows foreign investors are indeed having a significant impact on our real estate markets,” he said. Urban Futures found a total of 195 sales out of 55,512 in the Lower

Mainland last year were to foreign investors. That doesn’t count foreign buyers who use a local lawyer or building manager to receive mail or immigrants who are buying and perhaps living here part-time. But even doubling or tripling the number of foreign investor sales to account for those cases still leaves insignificant numbers, he said. Foreign buyers have a much greater appetite for more expensive homes than local buyers, according to Berlin’s calculations. The foreign investors who bought in 2010 paid on average twice as much for a condo as other buyers. They paid 60 per cent more on average for detached houses. A previous report this spring by Landcor Data Corp. had also linked a large proportion of luxury home sales in recent years to buyers from mainland China. Landcor found that activity is concentrated in a few areas, particularly Vancouver’s west side, the North Shore, Richmond and South Surrey. Berlin said residents shouldn’t be spooked by the average real estate prices in the region, which are increasingly deceptive as they are skewed by the most expensive properties. The region’s average sale price for a detached home hit $810,000 in 2010. But if you exclude the priciest 20 per cent of homes, Berlin notes, the average price for the rest of the market is $591,000.

Lafflines to open this summer: Buckland Happy Canada Day! CONTINUED FROM PAGE

A9

The opening was originally slated for last summer, and then pushed to this April, but Buckland is confident Lafflines at the Burr Theatre will finally be ready in the coming weeks. “It’s about 90 per cent done,” Buckland said. “We just need the city to sign off on it.” Other work done at the Burr includes the addition of a kitchen on the second floor (where Lafflines will be located) and wheelchair-accessible washrooms, and the two floors have been soundproofed and new carpeting, tables, and chairs have been installed. “Everything had to be brought up to code and that takes a lot of time, effort and money,” Buckland said. “You want it to be done right.” While Lafflines will be ready this summer, Buckland says the cabaret theatre downstairs will open closer to fall. He said he hopes to draw a broad demographic with the comedy club and dinner theatre acting as two separate entities. The club’s liquor license will also allow minors to attend some shows, depending on the content, he added. Lafflines at the Burr Theatre will hold about 200 people, the same capacity as the current location, while the main floor will be able to hold 300 guests. One obvious benefit of the new comedy club— there will be no pillars or visual obstructions, Lickers said. “The pillars [at the old location] were always a thorn in our side,” said Lickers. The new location will also allow Buckland to bring in bigger acts, since performances can be hosted in the larger downstairs theatre. Buckland purchased the Burr Theatre in 2009 for $850,000 from the City of New Westminster. The transaction had strings attached, including guidelines about how the theatre would be used and renovated, with a requirement to allow access to nonprofit groups. Buckland said his vision for the venue helped win the bid to purchase the theatre. “It’s a multicultural venue that serves a lot of purposes. There’s no place in town where

multicultural groups can go and use a venue like this.” It can host anything from weddings and cultural events to fundraisers. “We are not just doing comedy anymore.” While Buckland wouldn’t reveal details about the grand opening, he said he plans to bring in some wellknown performers. “It’s going to be someone people will know and enjoy immensely,” he said.

NEWSLEADER

Canada Day is on Friday. And front and centre at all the celebrations, picnics and barbecues will be the Canadian flag, the red and white Maple Leaf. It will be fluttering from flagpoles, jabbed into hats and hairdos, hanging from trees, painted on cheeks and maybe even tattooed on biceps. The Maple Leaf was adopted as Canada’s national flag in 1965, after months of intense and occasionally acrimonious debate that almost stalemated Parliament. The champion for a new national flag was Prime Minister Lester Pearson; when he was working to resolve the Suez Crisis in Egypt in 1956, the Egyptian government had objected to his proposal for Canadian troops to act as peacekeepers because Canada’s Red Ensign flag incorporated the flag of the United Kingdom, with whom Egypt had had a falling out. The Red Ensign was also unpopular in Quebec, a major base of support for Pearson’s minority Liberal government. But the leader of the opposition Conservatives, John Diefenbaker, wanted nothing to do with a new flag. On May 27, 1964, the Liberal government introduced a motion to Parliament to adopt Pearson’s favoured “sea to sea” flag, three conjoined red maple leaves on a white field bracketed by blue bars at each end. The Conservatives demanded a national referendum on the new flag, which Diefenbaker called the “Pearson pennant.” Pearson formed a multi-party committee of 15 members of parliament to evaluate and choose a new design. The eventual winner, an 11-point maple leaf on a white field bordered by red bars, was created by George F.G. Stanley. It was unanimously approved by the committee on Oct. 29, 1964 and then by a majority vote in the House of Commons on Dec. 15. Queen Elizabeth proclaimed the new flag on Jan. 28, 1965 and it was first raised over Parliament Hill in a noon ceremony on Feb. 15.

Rhubarb lemonade INGREDIENTS 8 cups (2 L) chopped rhubarb 3 cups (750 mL) granulated sugar 3 tbsp (45 mL) grated lemon rind 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) lemon juice METHOD In a large saucepan, stir together 3 cups (750 mL) water, rhubarb, sugar and lemon rind; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer and stir until sugar is dissolved and rhubarb breaks up, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice. Strain through a fine sieve, pressing out liquid. Let cool. To serve, mix one part of the syrup to three parts water, pour over ice.
