Burnaby refinery hearing set
RCMP snag parolee
Chevron application will be heard in January Jennifer Moreau
Dangerous offender arrested for parole violation in home in southeast Burnaby
Chevron is one step closer to learning whether the Burnaby refinery will have priority access to oil coming down Kinder Morgan’s pipeline. Chevron filed an application with the National Energy Board in July, in an attempt to secure a more steady supply of oil from the pipeline amidst rising demand, and the board announced last Friday that the application will be heard in January. Kinder Morgan charges customers to run oil products from Alberta to B.C. via the Trans Mountain pipeline, and one of the customers is Burnaby’s Chevron refinery. Because demand to use the pipeline has exceeded its maximum capacity, shippers have received less oil than what they would like, including Chevron. “Since late 2010, recurrent and ongoing apportionment on the pipeline has repeatedly reduced and continues to threaten the supply of crude required by the Burnaby refinery,” said Chevron’s Ray Lord in a July company statement. At times, Chevron has received up to 70 per cent less than requested, prompting the company to apply for priority access. If the National Energy Board approves the application, oil destined to the refinery would get priority access when demand on the pipeline’s capacity is high. To be eligible for the designation, the company has to show that it’s already connected to the pipeline, which it is, and that it’s not economically feasible Refinery Page 10

Walk with a view: The good weather brought walkers out to Burnaby’s Deer Lake recently and, despite mid-week thunderstorms, the sun is expected to be out this weekend in time for the annual Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival tomorrow. See page 4 for more details about the popular summer event.
A Burnaby man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for violating his parole was arrested recently. Steven Wong was released on parole in June after serving 50 months for a series of violent robberies. Shortly after his release, he violated parole and a Canadawide warrant was issued for his arrest. The Burnaby RCMP recently obtained a warrant to enter a southeast Burnaby home after receiving information that Wong might be there. The Burnaby RCMP’s prolific offender suppression team worked with the Lower Mainland district emergency response team and the police dog service and arrested Wong without incident. “The arrest of this dangerous offender was dealt with appropriately from a tactical and legal perspective,” Supt. Derren Lench of the Burnaby RCMP said in a press release. “(We kept) officer and public safety as a paramount consideration.” www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

Shooting in city Police investigating after man hit in South Burnaby Alfie Lau
The Burnaby RCMP are investigating a Tuesday evening shooting in the Edmonds area that has left a 20-yearold man with gunshot wounds. According to Cpl. Rick Skolrood of the Burnaby RCMP, the incident occurred around 11:30 p.m. in the 7200 block of Salisbury Avenue in South Burnaby. The investigation is in its early stages and while the police do not believe the shooting was random, they also do not believe it is gang-related. Police are looking for a male suspect in his early 20s, approximately 5-8 tall with an average build and wearing dark clothing. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922.
Const. Calvin Leung of the Richmond RCMP was enjoying a day off in the Metrotown area recently when his police instincts kicked in. “I was just driving along when I saw these two males run across Kingsway towards the Metrotown parking lot,” Leung said in a police press release. “Cars were braking hard to avoid running them down. I was going to roll down my window and have a word with them, but then I saw them strip off their top layer of clothes. I thought something was up so I followed them.” Leung parked his car and followed the two men on foot. When the men got onto a bus, Leung told the bus driver to wait for the police while he called 911. Burnaby RCMP constables responded immediately and took the two men off the bus. Police were able to link the men to the robbery of a local restaurant that occurred just moments before. Both men were arrested, with one of them found with a large hunting knife. “This demonstrates the strong instincts and dedication to duty that our police officers possess,” Supt. Derren Lench of the Burnaby RCMP said in a press release. “I’ve taken the opportunity to personally thank Const. Leung for his quick and decisive actions.” Two Vancouver men, George Mack Nicholson and James Douglas Holden, are now facing robbery charges. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau 6

5 SPCA investigation on
Merchants left in biz ‘limbo’ Local shop owner says he was shocked by eviction notices Janaya Fuller-Evans
Station Square shoe repair shop owner Joseph Emin said he was shocked when business owners in an outside corridor of the complex were given eviction notices for the end of August. The merchants were reassured for years by property manager Anthem Properties that they would not be required to vacate when development of the new Station Square complex took place, said Emin, who has owned the shop since 1995. “The manager came here – every year, they bring us chocolates for Christmas – and I said, ‘I hope this is not the last Christmas gift,’” he said. “She said, ‘No, no, you guys are going to stay.’” In the spring, the owners were told the developer needed the corridor as a thoroughfare for machinery, according to Emin. “They said, ‘Guys, sorry, the developer told us there is no room for the machines to work here, you have to go,’” he said. Previously, the owners had been told they could stay at least 14 months in that area and could then relocate to spots on the south side of the property, he said. If Emin had known he would have to move by September, he would’ve looked for spots elsewhere on the property, he added. “If I knew that, I could get a space... at that time, there was space available,” he said. The property management company has not notified the merchants as to whether or not they can return in a couple of years once construction is finished, according to Emin. He is not sure whether he should shut down for two years and find work until he can reopen in the new complex, or if he should sign a five-year lease at a new location, he said. Moving means starting again from scratch with a new client base, he added. He has sent emails to the management company repeatedly since he received his notice but has had no response, Emin said. “I’d like them to tell me exactly where I’m standing,” he said. “I want to have peace of mind, so I can make my plans, make my decisions (about what) to do next.” Emin has two young children, he said, and a $2,000 mortgage. He is the only member of his family bringing in an income, and said he is worried the bank will take his home if he doesn’t have a job. His customers are very upset about the loss of the local shops along the corridor, he added. “They say, ‘We don’t want to lose you,

Lost in limbo: Station Square shop owner Joseph Emin is concerned he might lose his business when the complex is redeveloped. we need you,’” Emin said. “It’s just so unfortunate. “ Boston Pizza and Red Robin have already closed, and a currency exchange two doors down from the shoe repair shop has a sign in the window stating it is relocating on Aug. 25. Between the shoe repair shop and the currency exchange, Station Square Jewellers is having a closing sale. The owner’s son, Atish Rama, said his family has run the store for 22 years. “We were just assuming we could come back here when they rebuild,” he said. “We’re still waiting, and they’re not giving a yes or no answer.” He said the business owners in the area were told for years that they could stay. “When we got the notice, everybody was just in shock here,” he said. His family has been in touch with Anthem since the spring, but Rama said they have not received confirmation that the business can return once construction is completed. “There’s nothing yet, so we’re still waiting,” he said.

Customers have also reacted to the news with shock and dismay, according to Rama. “Some of the customers were crying, actually crying, when we told them we were moving,” he said. But he hopes the property managers will tell them soon that they can return to the complex, he added. “We don’t even mind closing for two years and coming back,” Rama said. “Hopefully we can get the store back.” Anthem’s senior vice-president of development, Rob Blackwell, did not respond to requests for an interview before press time. The first phase of development on the site is focused on the northern part of the current site, between Kingsborough Street and Kingsway, with changes to the south portion to be considered later on. Plans include commercial space at ground level, offices in the next two storeys, and five residential towers ranging in height from 35 to 57 storeys. The development includes plans for a number of open, public spaces, as well.

Local fan favourite gearing up for city festival Marelle Reid staff reporter
Fresh from his Japan summer tour, Kelly Joe Phelps is back in North America and getting ready for the Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival at Deer Lake Park this Saturday. The American folk-blues guitarist played four shows in the Tokyo area, where the largest venue held only about 150 people. It’s pretty much the opposite type of experience from playing at a festival, Phelps said. “In a small venue, the tendency is to explore the dynamic range, which isn’t necessarily an option at a festival, but what the festival offers that the little gig doesn’t is sheer energy.” At the festival this weekend, Phelps will play for about 5,000 people. A regular in the Lower Mainland, he’s played at the Vancouver Folk Festival several times, but this will be his first gig in Burnaby. “I’m really looking forward to it,” he said. His set will feature some tunes from his new record – Brother Sinner and the Whale, to be released Aug. 21 – as well as some older songs from his nine previous albums.
Phelps was born and raised in southwestern Washington State, and he now lives in Vancouver, Washington. Since 1991 he has been working as a musician, teaching and performing, and since 1994 has made a full-time living from playing live shows and selling albums. Phelps’ signature style is the lap slide, but lately he’s moved more into the bottle-neck style slide guitar, using a glass tube to get that distinctive bluesy sound. This month, he is taking it relatively easy before starting another overseas tour. From all over Europe to all over Australia, Phelps won’t have more than about a week between any of his shows in those six months. “This summer is kind of rolling around and doing a few festivals here and there, and then September through February is going to be really slammin,’” he said. Headlining the Burnaby Blues and Roots festival is the American folk duo, the Indigo Girls. The lineup also includes blues guitarist Jimmie Vaughn, older brother of the late Stevie Ray Vaughn; Mamadu and Mariam, a duo from Mali; singer/songwriter, rapper and bassist Meshell Ndegeocello; as well as Canadian bands The Deep Dark Woods, The Washboard Union and No Sinner.
Enjoy the ﬁner things in life
Gates open at 12:30 p.m. and the show starts at 2 p.m. The west gate closes at 6 p.m. and the main gate closes at 9 p.m. Parking near Deer Lake Park is limited during the festival, therefore organizers encourage ticket holders to use alternative modes of transportation such as taxis, carpools, bicycles and public transit. There are bike racks on site, and there is a free shuttle bus service available from the BCIT campus (payparking in effect). Organizers also encourage anyone interested in purchasing tickets to review the guidelines on the festival website: www.burnabybluesfestival.com. The Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival is produced by the City of Burnaby and the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts. Tickets will be available at the gate for $75, and children aged 12 and under get in free with an adult. For more information and tickets, call the box office at 604-2053000, or visit www.burnabyblue sfestival.com. NOW reporter Marelle Reid, along with photographer Jason Lang, are scheduled to be at the festival on Saturday. Keep an eye on next week’s edition for photos and a review of the annual event.
Gearing up: Kelly Joe Phelps has just returned from a tour in Japan and will play at the blues and roots festival.

The secret lives of famous people IN MY OPINION
udrey Hepburn. Marcel Marceau. Josephine Baker. Jimmy Stewart. David Niven. Shirley Temple. Julia Child. I’ve just listed, in order, a member of the Dutch Resistance, two members of the French Resistance, a bomber pilot, a commando, an ambassador, and a member of the nascent CIA. I’ve been keeping a mental collection for the past few years of the untold stories of those we think we know. Fame tends to magnify, and reduce. We don’t remember Audrey Hepburn, the person, we remember the girl with the long cigarette holder in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. We don’t remember James Stewart so much as we recall George Bailey and his savings and loan. But the most fascinating sides of so many lives are lived entirely out of sight. Hepburn, for example, was raised by a British father, who was a fascist sympathizer, and a Dutch mother. When her parents split up, she found herself living in Holland as the Second World War broke out. Living under
a false Dutch name with her materna relatives, she studied ballet and barely avoided starvation. She danced for audiences of resistance sympathizers, raising funds to fight the Nazis. The crowds could not applaud for fear of being discovered and her best shows, she said, were delivered in utter silence. The mime Marcel Marceau, and the African-American dancer and singer Josephine Baker may never have crossed paths, but both worked to undermine the Nazis as well. Marceau, Jewish himself, learned mime to silently entertain – and keep quiet – the Jewish children he was spiriting out of occupied France. Before the war, Baker had married a French man who was Jewish, and as someone who naturally despised racists, she volunteered to spy on the Nazis, and allegedly smuggled messages for the resistance, written in invisible ink on her sheet music. Jimmy Stewart led bombing missions over Europe as a commander with the U.S. Army Air Force, after struggling for years to avoid being used purely as a propaganda tool. In his later years, he supposedly refused to let any movie studio use his war record to promote his films. Actor David Niven wrote candidly about almost every

Europe. Riders found violating the new helmet laws will receive a $138 fine. New seating laws have also been put into place to protect both passengers and riders. That’s not to mention the higher risks they face of injury and death if they don’t comply. However, about two-thirds of crashes between motorcycles and other vehicles are the fault of the other vehicles. So it’s important for those who drive the “other vehicles” to pay attention. Check your mirrors frequently, and
watch out for your smaller companions on the road, especially at intersections. It can be more difficult to judge a motorcyclist’s speed and distance than those of another car – a factor that’s particularly important when turning left through an intersection or onto a side road. All the usual rules apply. Basically, try to keep from running into each other. And try a bit of courtesy out there. Acknowledging other drivers with a wave or eye contact isn’t just being nice – it can save a life.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Make child care election issue Dear Editor:
Re: Providing quality child care is good for all, Our View, Burnaby NOW, Aug. 1. I was really pleased to see your article on the challenges that parents with young children face when they want or need to access child care services. Few people seem to realize, until they are parents or grandparents themselves facing the crisis, that fees are ridiculously high – up to $1,915 a month per child, wages for workers are at poverty levels and waiting lists can be years long. But, the solution to the crisis is not big-box commercial child care. The solution is the $10/day Early Care & Learning Plan that is getting huge support

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Plenty of time for change continued from page 6
changes that are substantial instead of ineffective. Think how much can be accomplished in 20 years. We didn’t have email, Facebook and Twitter then. In 1992 Yaletown and South False Creek hadn’t been developed yet, Brian Mulroney was prime minister, and yes, Derek Corrigan was a member of Burnaby council. After 20 years, here’s how slowly council has moved. The first stage of the “plan,” which is now complete, included: one-year trial of speed reduction through the neighbourhood; curb bulges for three Albert Street intersections; continued education and enforcement of traffic laws in the neighbourhood; continued support for upgrading residential roads; periodic reviews of the Hastings Street signal timings. I wonder if the engineering department plans to do any traffic counts to see if these changes have reduced traffic in any way. Something tells me they won’t find any difference because these measures haven’t affected traffic at all. Why don’t we have trial periods for more effective solutions like barriers, more stop signs and longer HOV hours? Surely the mayor and council can do better, given the 20 years that they’ve considered the problem – they obviously don’t have the political will. I guess they don’t mind looking like the ineffective, fence-sitters that they are. Diane Mar-Nicolle, Burnaby
Pipeline plans a concern Dear Editor:
I remain very concerned about the proposed new oil pipelines. The default position in the making of land-use decisions must always be negative. The proponent must prove that the environmental risk is acceptable, the dis-
ruption to people’s lives will not be unreasonable and the economic benefit to the community will be substantial. If it fails to do so the project should not proceed. I am not against progress and development but have a healthy skepticism when it comes to how those seeking approval of mega-projects assess environmental risk. As things stand I believe that neither the Northern Gateway nor the Trans Mountain expansion pipelines should be built. The proponents will have to do a great deal more than they have to date to convince me that either project makes sense. Right now both look like high-risk, lowreturn ventures, at least from the point of view of the general public. Garth Evans, Burnaby
Baldrey is out of touch Dear Editor:
It is time for Keith Baldrey to call it quits and retire from doing the present commentary job. He is just like Adrian Dix, living in the Twilight Zone. He quotes about the B.C. Liberal government, “Clearly unpopular with a majority of its constituents.” How did he come up with that phrase? Surely not from the inadequate polling results. The polling results are bogus, big time. There are over four million taxpayers in B.C. These polls usually are done with 1,000 responses. To get a truer picture of what taxpayers are thinking is to do a poll riding by riding. That’s right, a poll of all 85 B.C. ridings. For example, the results in Jenny Kwan’s riding would be for the NDP, and the results for Rich Coleman’s riding would be for the Liberals. In the provincial election next year, the NDP strongholds will be won by the NDP and the Liberal strongholds will be won by the Liberals. What happened in 2001 with the Liberals winning 77 of 79 will not happen with the NDP this time around. Joe Sawchuk, Duncan

Burnaby resident on the march for health BCIT student has personal ties to kidney disease Marelle Reid staff reporter
Failure is not an option. That’s the slogan for the Canadian Kidney Foundation, the organization that provides funding for research to help millions of Canadians affected by kidney failure and related disorders. For Burnaby resident and BCIT marketing communications student Elyse Gawley, it’s a mantra for her life. Last December, the 22year-old went to the doctor after experiencing high blood pressure and breathing problems. She was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease, which means she will need to go on dialysis or have an organ transplant within the next 10 years or so. Her grandfather died of the disease after 20 years on dialysis, her younger cousin has also been diagnosed, and both her father and uncle have had transplants. “My dad and my uncle
both have three kidneys each; two that don’t work, and one that keeps them alive,” she said. Despite this being a challenging year for Gawley – with a hospital stay in March and her uncle having his transplant operation just two months ago – she is determined to do her part to help others suffering from the disease. In September, Gawley and her mother will walk 100 km over three days for the Trip to Triumph in Southern Alberta to raise money for the Canadian Kidney Foundation. They must each raise a minimum of $2,200 to participate, and together, they plan to raise $4,700 for the cause. To reach their goal, team Gawley will hold a fundraiser in early September at The Cellar nightclub on Granville St. in Vancouver. The event will include a free drink and a live show at 9 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance, or $15 at the door. Gawley said it means a lot to her whenever anyone makes a donation, both for herself and her family, as well as for everyone in the province on the transplant wait list.
“That’s really important to me because being on dialysis is not a life,” she said. “It keeps you alive, but it is your life. That’s all you do.” Currently, there are more than 300 British Columbians waiting for a solid organ transplant. Of those, about 72 per cent are waiting for a kidney, sometimes for up to 10 years. Thousands of British Columbians are on kidney dialysis, and most will one day be on the waiting list for a kidney transplant, according to the B.C. Transplant Society. Besides volunteering withtheKidneyFoundation and the British Columbia Transplant Society, Gawley is also the director of MA Saves Lives, a student committee at BCIT that promotes organ donor awareness. She wants to change the current statistic that suggests 85 per cent of British Columbians support organ donation, while only 17 per cent are registered to be donors. “People just don’t like talking about it,” she said. “I guess people think it’s a morbid talk to have with your family members, to
let your mind go there.” One fact Gawley likes to point out is that the average British Columbian has a greater chance of needing a kidney at some point in his or her life than of becoming an eligible donor. “So, if people think about it that way, they’re probably much more likely to sign up,” she said. More than 2.5 million Canadians have, or are at risk of developing chronic kidney disease. Though she cannot change her own diagnosis, Gawley said having kidney disease has, at least, given her a passion and a purpose to focus her energy towards helping others. “I don’t know what my future will hold because I have it, but it’s more just led me to wanting to speak out about it and bringing awareness to kidney disease and transplant donation. It’s kind of inspired me, I guess you could say.” The Kidney March will take place Sept. 7 to 9, starting in Millarville, AB and finishing in Calgary. For more information about the Kidney March, or to donate, visit www. kidneymarch.ca.

The overwhelming smell of chili coming from just outside the Burnaby RCMP detachment was no mistake on July 31. The detachment hosted a chili fundraiser to help support the five local officers who will be riding in the Cops for Cancer fundraiser later this year. Cpl. Michel Ling, Const. Sebastien Simard, Sgt. Stephane Brossard,
Const. Iain Thomson and Const. Tammy Anonson will be riding for a good cause. “This is one of several fundraisers we hold every year to raise money for cancer research,” Ling said in a press release. “It’s a fun way to bring the detachment and city employees together to support a great cause.” Each fall, more than 100 law enforcement officers and emergency services workers cycle up to two weeks across four regions of British Columbia to support children with
cancer and their families. Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Coast, Tour de North, Tour de Rock and Tour de Valley are invested in life-saving childhood cancer research and caring support services including Camp Goodtimes, the acclaimed summer recreation program for children with cancer and their family. Anyone wishing to donate, can contact Anonson at 604-294-7922. www.twitter.com/ AlfieLau
Refinery: National Energy Board hearing set continued from page 1
to bring in oil using other methods, (by ship, rail, or truck, for example), which is also the case for the refinery. Even if Kinder Morgan gets approval to more than double the pipeline’s capacity, that would not necessarily solve Chevron’s supply issue, because demand for Canadian crude is so high right now, according to Lord. The board hearing is scheduled for Jan. 15 in Calgary, Alta. Members of the public can participate by applying for intervenor status or filing a “letter of comment.” Burnaby-Douglas MP Kennedy Stewart has asked to be an intervenor in Chevron’s hearing. “What we can do is present evidence, and we can also ask questions of witnesses, and we have a sum-
mary statement. It’s almost like Matlock,” Stewart said. “At this point, I would be supporting the application but also asking questions on how Chevron is improving operations here in Burnaby. … I think that’s the balanced approach the community wants.” The refinery is in Stewart’s riding, and Kinder Morgan’s pipeline expansion plan and the refinery are top issues with his constituents. “I have people calling my office every day, … asking questions about this,” Stewart said. As the last large refinery left in B.C., Chevron employs roughly 250 people and processes 50,000 to 55,000 barrels of petroleum products every day. The refinery supplies 25 to 30 per cent of the province’s
gasoline, 25 per cent of the commercial diesel and 40 per cent of the jet fuel used at the Vancouver International Airport. Stewart wants to intervene to “save the refinery” and make sure it gets the supply of oil needed to keep functioning “We would have no local capacity to produce gas if it closes and gas prices could very well increase,” he said. The other reason Stewart wants to intervene is because he can ask questions of Chevron at the hearing, and the company is obliged to answer. “You don’t get a lot of opportunities to ask questions of multinationals to get a detailed response, and I want to take this opportunity to do that,” he said. “There are a lot of concerns in the neighbourhood
about pollution, upgrading to reduce emissions as much as possible, and to try and reduce the leak,” Stewart said, referring to the contaminated groundwater that’s been seeping from the refinery for more than two years. “I think that’s a fairly balanced approach, to try and ensure their survival but make sure they become a better refinery. … Chevron’s asking to have a very long-(term) supply of oil. They are really asking the energy board for a special kind of request. In order to have a special request, we should make sure the refinery is operating to community standards.” The deadline to apply for intervenor status is Aug. 24, while the letter of comment deadline is Oct. 30.

Building one’s own community Unique co-housing project in Burnaby showcases community Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
According to psychologist Abraham Maslow, a sense of belonging fits somewhere between safety and self-esteem in the hierarchy of human needs. The drive to be part of a social group, to be a valued contributing participant, is an intrinsic element of human nature. At Cranberry Commons, a 22unit housing complex in Burnaby’s Heights neighbourhood, this sense of belonging seems to be flourishing. The 50 or so residents have the privacy of their own homes, but they are situated around a common space with shared amenities. The idea is to create a close community, where people share things and help one another. At Cranberry Commons, they make decisions by consensus and publicly appreciate one another for their contributions. Sound like an anarchist utopia? Not really, it’s a concept called “cohousing” that originated in Denmark in the 1960s. Cranberry Commons is the only co-housing project in Burnaby, and

a part of life at Cranberry Commons. “The fact that we know each other makes our community more secure,” says Grant. For instance, there was the time when a couple of nefarious characters were milling about in the parkade, and a resident politely asked who they were there to see. When they replied that they were friends of “Jackie,” the resident told them there was no one there named Jackie, and to get the hell out. The police were incredulous that she could possibly know everyone in her complex, something the residents all laugh at when they tell the story. There’s also a shared sense of security about the children within the complex; parents may not know where their kids are, but they know they are safe. Marlene Leggatt, a widow and resident of six years, likes the sense of connection with her neighbours at Cranberry Commons. “Here, you are not isolated,” says the retired nurse. “They’re certainly willing to help. It’s just a marvelous feeling.” Grant says there is a lot of sharing of resources: child care, books, lawnmowers, cars, you name

African festival on this Saturday at Swangard HERE & NOW
eep this Saturday free to mix and mingle with your neighbours from Africa and Canada. The Africa Ekassa Cultural Festival is at Swangard Stadium Aug. 11, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. There will be music, dance performances, international food, arts, storytelling, drumming, crafts, games and information booths and displays. “(The festival) has always been a cultural event that enables Canadians to enjoy and learn about different cultures from different parts of the world,” said organizer Osakue Ukponrefe. This will be the third year for the festival, which started in Queensborough but moved to Burnaby’s Swangard Stadium to accommodate a larger crowd. Ukponrefe is expecting roughly 2,000 people to attend this year. “Definitely, you’re going to have a lot of
African music and dances, lots of culture,” he said. “Some people are going to dress African. You’re also going to see the different varieties of culture in different parts of Africa.” Ukponrefe said it’s also an opportunity to meet people from Africa and ask questions about where they came from, chill out and enjoy the food and music. There is no admission fee, but the organizers welcome donations. Money raised goes to the hosting organization: Edo Friends of British Columbia Association, which helps new immigrants with settlement services.

Steering feel and throttle response (and airconditioning use), but not the suspension, change as you flick through the three settings. You can also flick the transmission into a sport mode, if you’re really in the mood for some spirited driving. Power comes from a 3.5-litre 268-horsepower V6 engine in the ES 350, and it’s mated to a sixspeed automatic transmission, which is basically the same as the current ES 350. It has good low engine speed grunt and, in combination with the new sport mode features, this ES can really move and is fun to drive. The new ES 300h uses basically the same hybrid system in the Camry Hybrid. The gas engine is a 2.5-litre Atkinson cycle four-cylinder, and, in conjunction with the electric motor, it can generate 200 hp and is smooth in operation. Most drivers will find the power provided to be more than adequate, and there’s an EV (electric) drive mode with a range of up to two kilometres. The payoff for the ES 300h is, of course, at the gas pump and for the environment. Lexus, however, was not able to provide official fuel economy numbers before press time. I expect the numbers should be close to the new Camry Hybrid, which is an exceptionally good 4.9/5.1 L/100 km (city/highway). The ES has been the top-selling Lexus in Canada for the past five years and 31 per cent of buyers previously owned a Lexus ES. Now those are solid numbers!

spindle grille design, come from a super-coupe concept vehicle called the LFLC, which has been doing the auto show circuit. Lexus has put engineering emphasis in this redesign to make the ES a better handling vehicle with a higher level of driving enjoyment. In spite of the fact that the new ES has a longer wheelbase and a (slightly) wider track, the chassis, steering and suspension changes do seem to give it a lighter and more balanced feel on the road. Straight line directional stability has also gained a more positive steering feel. The chassis changes take this ES further away from its Toyota Camry roots than previous generations. The difference becomes profound when you move inside and enjoy its opulent decor. It has a larger cabin that offers considerably more rear passenger room (104 mm more legroom and 71 mm of extra knee space) compared to the current ES. The trim packages start with a base version with (NuLux) synthetic leather upholstery. It looks good, is lighter than the leather used on higher trim levels and gives an option to those opposed to the use of leather in cars. Then there’s a premium package; leather and navigation package; a touring package and a technology package. Lexus did not reveal the price structure on the new ES before press time, but expect a fairly wide price spread between a base version and a full-load top trim ES. That said, you can certainly add some nice features, including rear cross traffic alert, a lane departure warning system, a blind spot alert system, vented as well as heated seats, a Remote Touch interface, a panoramic sun Erin Cebula, Spokesperson

Top athlete made final year count Athlete was team MVP in two appearances at provincials Tom Berridge sports editor
The Burnaby NOW’s high school cofemale athlete of the year has a lot to look back on from her final year at St. Thomas More Collegiate. Samantha Drescher was voted her team MVP at the B.C. AA provincial volleyball championships, where STM placed sixth, tops among all Lower Mainland schools. She also made the Commissioner’s XI list at the provincial AA soccer championships, where the STM Knights were among the pre-tournament favourites before placing fourth overall. “I was real excited and flat“I think the most tered,” said rewarding aspect Drescher regarding her selection was getting to as co-athlete of know everyone the year. “I know there’s a lot of in my grade on competition in a more personal Burnaby. I felt lifted up and level.” accomplished.” The career SAMANTHA DRESCHER Burnaby athlete of the year honour roll student also got involved on the sidelines, helping manage the Knights’ varsity girls’ basketball team for the 2012 winter season. “I’ll probably remember just the people, they definitely make the memories,” said Drescher. “It was a lot of fun. It got me into a different group of girls. I really enjoyed it.” Drescher, who played a full season of adult women’s soccer with the premier division North Shore Renegades of the Metro Women’s Soccer League, will be playing for the University of British Columbia varsity team on scholarship in the upcoming fall season. “It was a real surprise,” Drescher said, when she was contacted by UBC women’s head soccer coach Mark Rogers at the end of 2011 about playing with the Thunderbirds after high school graduation. “I was kind of afraid of what to do after high school, so it was kind of a reality check. I just didn’t have to worry to see where I would get in. I already had that door open for me.” Prior to her final year of high school, Drescher had already decided to make every day count. “I figured it’s my last year. I would never see most of these people again, and I wanted to make the most of Grade 12,” she said.
Jason Lang/burnaby now
Athlete of the year: St. Thomas More Collegiate’s Samantha Drescher will be playing varsity soccer with the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds women’s team in September.
Drescher did just that. But besides the personal and team achievements, including back-to-back tournament MVPs at the Catholic soccer championships, Drescher got involved in school affairs, helping out with the pep squad, poster and dancing clubs. She also helped out around the school and in the community at a local soup kitchen. “I think the most rewarding aspect was getting to know everyone in my grade on a more personal level,” she said. Drescher also trains at a boxing gym and loves it. “I do, I love it, I think it’s a great crosstrainer. I think it’s a great way to stay in shape and work out, but it’s also a great way to relieve that stress,” Drescher
added. She has even sparred a few times with her trainer, but as yet, has no plan to step into the ring with a real opponent, she said. “Maybe, I might (fight) if I get good enough. I think it would be a lot of fun.” She took up the sport as another way to help rehabilitate an ACL injury she suffered in 2010. “I wanted to push myself a little more and Level 10 Fitness suggested Griffiths gym. I’m not going to quit that gym soon,” Drescher added. Contrastingly, Drescher was also a onetime, youngest-ever contestant in the Miss B.C. pagent in 2010. While soccer has always been the mainstay for the now 18-year-old Burnaby resi-
dent, an overseas experience in Brazil with the People to People sports ambassadorship a year ago left a lasting impression on her and opened another possibility to her – travel. “We went to an orphanage and brought the kids toys and they put on a show. I just loved it,” Drescher said. “It was everything – the people, my soccer team, the coaches that came to scout us, the leaders, the sightseeing – it was a life-changing experience. “I definitely want to travel more and see the world.”

She started volunteering at a needle exchange on Carrall Street in 2003, several months before Insite opened (North America’s only legal safe injection site). From those early days, work in the Downtown Eastside community mattered more to her than anything else. “You can’t un-ring that bell once you realize how hard it is for people,” she explains. In 2009, Hacksel completed a MSc in Comparative Social Policy with an emphasis on Health Care Policy at the University of Oxford. Her thesis was a comparative analysis of social policy aimed at improving the health outcomes of survival sex workers in Canada and the U.S. Not only has the curriculum been developed by industry, but the three partner agencies
have provided !exibility to their employees so that the courses are taught by current industry professionals and supplemented by an impressive array of guest speakers. Coursework will explore the social, political, and historical intersections between mental health, addiction, and poverty. Courses on sociology, public policy, psychology, and history will arm students with a foundational knowledge of social inequality and health, drug policy, Canadian aboriginal history, youth homelessness, and national housing strategies. All coursework is relevant and essential to a career in mental health and addictions. For example, the psychology courses prepare students with numerous client-centered approaches including Psychosocial Rehabilitation, Life Skills Mentoring, Motivational Interviewing, Seeking Safety (a present-focused therapy to help people attain safety from trauma/PTSD and substance abuse), and managing Concurrent Disorders. The program will also address occupational health matters like self-care and dealing with trauma.

Shayne Williams adds that “the multiple sites is a bonus and not typical of most practicum experiences.” The objectives of the Field Experience are to provide: 1) context upon which to re!ect and discuss during the theory portion of the program; 2) experience which will allow students opportunities to become comfortable generally in the mental health and addictions "eld and speci"cally in a number of diverse placements with at least two different agencies; and "nally

3) mentorship/networking opportunities while building relationships with the staff and clients at their practical sites. The experience also provides students with exposure to the day-today operations of the workplace, the agencies and the services provided. “One of the things about the course that is extremely unique is that there’s a good amount of time spent in experiential work,” says Karen O’Shannacery, Lookout’s Executive Director and Co-founder. “I think that’s extremely important: you can’t get that in a two- or four-week practicum.” Stenberg’s Practice Education Faculty and Student Manager, Jag Tak, says that the re!ective nature of the Field Experience affords the students with an invaluable opportunity: “The students are able to share and re!ect on their Field Experiences in a closed online forum. Through this re!ection, the students are linking knowledge to application, growing personally and professionally, and sharing a wealth of insights and experience with each other.” A cur-

“Special Education Feature”
Stenberg College’s Community Mental Health and Addiction Worker (CMHAW) diploma program
The Next Generation of Mental Health & Addiction Workers Proﬁles of some of Stenberg’s current students in the CMHAW program
Born in Fiji, Preetika was brought to Canada by her adoptive parents when she was 2 years old. Trained as a chef with a diploma in Culinary Arts, Preetika sees the Mental Health & Addiction Worker program as enhancing not replacing her chef training. “I love to cook but, at the same time, I want to learn more about mental health & addictions. Ideally I want to be a cook and a Mental Health Worker … A lot of people I will be working with have allergies, compromised immune systems, dietary needs …” An interest in yoga has her considering an holistic approach to her career. “I’ve been doing yoga for 4 years and I have ideas about incorporating yoga therapy into it.” Preetika received partial funding for the program from BC Employment & Labour Market Services (ELMS). Preetika had no experience or knowledge of mental health and addiction issues until a Stenberg grad’s passion inspired her to volunteer at Coast Mental Health. “No one talks about mental health and addiction issues in my culture. It’s not denial. They just don’t know.” For someone like Preetika, with little or no experience with mental health and addiction issues, the weekly "eld experience is an essential component. “I chose Stenberg because you not only get the education, but you get the experience. For the past 8 weeks I’ve been with Lookout’s Outreach Team and I got to sit in on a couple of meetings with BC Housing, which was very interesting, seeing how people get housed … I helped a lady who got accepted into a new place which made me really happy.” Preetika also gains so much from many of her classmates who have lived experiences to share. “I’ve learned so much from them. And it makes sense that someone whose been through it would want to give back.” Visibly passionate, Preetika says she could “talk all day” about her new career. “I love it!” Lorenzo is a 53 yearold male who has worked in construction all his life. However a repetitive strain injury necessitated a mid-life career change and he was fortunate to have his education approved and funded by the Worker’s Compensation Board (WCB). He chose a career in Mental Health & Addictions because of his personal
experiences with substance abuse and one particular Support Worker who inspired him in his recovery many years ago. Clean and sober for over 10 years, Lorenzo is looking forward to giving back and supporting others. In spite of Lorenzo’s personal experiences with substance abuse, it was the weekly Field Study experiences that sensitized Lorenzo and caused him to suspend his own assumptions and judgements about mental illness and addiction. “One of the biggest changes for me is in perspective. Even though I was an addict, I now look at everyone in an entirely different way after taking Sociology 100, 101 and 200 at Stenberg.” Stephanie Stephanie grew up with a crack-addicted, alcoholic mother who was either never there or who locked herself away in her bedroom or the bathroom. Stephanie is quick to point out that, like most addicts, when her Mom was clean she was a different person, she was a wonderful mother. “It was when the alcohol and crack came into play that things took a turn for the worst.” She died from an overdose in 2006 when Stephanie was 14 and her brother was 6. Stephanie’s life quickly spiraled out of control and she became addicted to alcohol, ecstasy and cocaine. At 16, Stephanie had the good fortune to go to her "rst 12-step meeting and recently celebrated 3 years of sobriety. Now 19, she is passionate about working in the "eld of mental health and addictions. “It not only helps keep me clean, it’s very rewarding. Enriching people’s lives and helping them get to the place that they want to be – whether that’s a healthier lifestyle, providing resources and support for their mental illness, harm reduction or recovery … A lot of alcoholics and addicts use because of the pain and the misery. They don’t like themselves, they don’t like their lives, they don’t like the people in their lives. I know those feelings. I know how much it hurts … to cry and to just want to be rid of the pain – to use and use and use until the pain is gone. It’s a horrible place to be.” Of the Stenberg program, Stephanie says simply “this is where I want to be.” Her classmates are knowledgeable, caring and focused on a best-practices approach to the "eld of mental health and addictions. “It’s a great mix of people,” she says. The classes at the Station Street Housing Project combined with her weekly "eld experience have her "rmly committed to
a career working in the downtown eastside. “I went to the Bosman Hotel on my weekly "eld experience. The people there are phenomenal and the clients are wonderful, very sweet. I was able to develop a few nice relationships with the clients and I loved it. This is service work at its "nest.” Troy had a normal, well-adjusted upbringing and was living a contented and successful life until “it all went sideways” after a divorce and a serious car accident. Due to a spine injury, Troy was no longer able to operate his successful welding business. He became hooked on pain killers which soon turned to illicit drugs and the criminal lifestyle that so often accompanies drugs. In and out of prison and recovery for 10 years, he moved to Vancouver to put his past behind him and start over “fresh.” He successfully completed treatment and as part of his on-going recovery, realized that helping other addicts kept him clean. His desire to give back led him to complete a 1 year Addictions Counsellor program and, in spite of graduating at the top of his class, he found there were no jobs after graduation. “As good as it was for me personally, there was no hope of me getting a job … It was while I was volunteering at the Lookout that I found out about their partnership with Stenberg. That was an epiphany. In terms of doing the work I want to do, Stenberg not only provides the education but also provides excellent job prospects.” Troy says the education he is receiving at Stenberg is “amazing! If you want to be a front-line worker and make a difference in people’s lives, Stenberg is the place for you. I’m exactly where I want to be.” Taka, short for Takako, has come all the way from Japan to learn about addiction and harm reduction in Vancouver’s downtown eastside. Taka is a graduate of the Health Sciences University of Hokkaido with a Bachelors of Social Work. She works as a Social Worker at the Seiryoin Psychiatric Hospital in Sapporo, Japan where she supports patients and their families. “I want to learn about mental health and addiction issues in Canada and take what I’ve learned and experienced here back to Japan.” Not only
is Taka gaining considerable knowledge and experience in the program but her perspectives on mental health and addictions are changing considerably. In particular, her weekly "eld experience is teaching her much about the underlying causes of homelessness and addiction. Taka regularly attends free English as a Second Language (ESL) classes and one-on-one tutoring sessions with Instructor Lisa Seminoff at the Surrey campus. “Lisa supports my English, and gives me advice on how to study for exams and keep up with the class. I really appreciate her help!” Christopher was “lost” to addiction, homelessness, crime and incarceration for almost 20 years in the Downtown Eastside. Clean and sober for the past 3 years, Christopher says it was his “healthy fear of death” that saved him. After a lifetime of feeling trapped and hopeless, Christopher sought treatment at the Burnaby Centre for Mental Health & Addiction (BCMHA). A combination of Christopher being “ready” and the Centre providing a positive feedback model and “actually listening resonated” with him. “I did a lot of re!ecting in treatment – ‘Am I done with drugs?’ Because there can’t be any reservations. There can’t be one more high waiting for you… If you keep looking behind you that’s the direction you’re going to be heading. I prefer to look forward.” While working as a Peer Support Worker at the Centre, he learned he had a talent for sharing his story and providing hope for others. With the encouragement and support of staff at BCMHA, Christopher decided to become a Mental Health & Addiction Worker and applied to Stenberg College. Christopher is perfectly suited for a career as a Mental Health & Addiction Worker. From his own experience he knows that “the mental health and addiction’s "eld needs like-minded people. Who else can provide better care than someone who comes from that background?” He says the support he has received from Stenberg has been “phenomenal. It’s a continuation of the treatment plan that started for me in BCMHA.” Of the coursework he say: “The classes have been eye-opening and a great help to the work I do at the Burnaby Centre. I take what I learn in my class and share it with the residents and staff at Burnaby Centre. It also assists me in training the other Peer Support Workers.”

She loved to travel, be it moose hunting in the far north, bird hunting in Alberta, cruising or the many road trips they took. She has had many memorable trips and has seen most of the world.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your romantic, pleasure-oriented, risk-taking mood continues. Children please. You’ll see beauty, nature’s poetic magic. Sunday’s for short trips, siblings, news, errands – a friendly, good day. (Write a work-related memo, or appeal to a loved one for understanding.) Home’s a tough go for you, 2010 to now (ultimately, to Oct. 5) – then improvement comes. So tough it out Monday to Wednesday morn, seek the “why” – could be your secrecy, or ﬁnancial faults. Change demanded. Wednesday p.m. is romantic but erratic: Thursday/Friday bring a stable attraction. To work, Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: The accent continues on home, property, parent/kid relations, security, foundations and retirement. Mother Nature plays a role: gardening brings joy. Rest, nap, indulge a sluggish feeling. Pursue money opportunities, balance the books, or purchase long-lasting items Sunday (before 2:49 p.m. PDT, 5:49 EDT, etc.). Machines/ tools bought this day (especially in the a.m.) will “last forever.” Casual friends, siblings, and your ability to communicate – these have been under pressure or “gummed up” since 2010 – and are again, Monday to early Wednesday. October will bring a solution. Gemini May 21-June 20: Errands, communications, paperwork, short trips, siblings and casual friends – these ﬁll your days, especially Wednesday to Friday. Be curious, explore, ask questions. You’re the star Sunday: romance is stable yet warm; or ﬂirty yet ungraspable. Money has been a problem since 2010, perhaps even since 2008; you might have less now. (Sex, or the desire for change, is at the bottom of this.) The main problem will begin to dissolve by October, but caution is needed until then – e.g., Monday to Wednesday noon, when you might be torn between small fast money and big/distant.
Cancer June 21-July 22: Lie low, rest Sunday – a great day for contemplating career situations, and for mending or renovating your home and/or your marriage. Be charitable, spiritual. Your energy roars back Monday to Wednesday – though you’ll need it to overcome the various glitches: technological or electrical Monday, career or home Tuesday. These days also bring a relationship trend to a minor peak: realize charm and affection are one of the best ways to deal with a stubborn person/situation. Be cautious with money Wednesday, chase it Thursday/Friday. Friends and travel Saturday. You’re attractive! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness run high! Get out, start important projects, make contact, ask favours. Your optimism, popularity and joy reach skyward Sunday (though little of import occurs). Be cautious and diplomatic Monday to Wednesday noon – your energy ebbs, and links with government, head ofﬁce and health institutions are under stress, have been for several years. Much of this will lighten by October, some solutions will appear. The “deeper problem” involves health, laziness vs. work. You’re the star Wednesday noon to Friday: someone’s attracted! Money luck Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Be restful, eat and dress sensibly. Protect your health. Avoid the bustling crowds, competitive situations. Your ambitions succeed Sunday. Your social life has been subject to bafﬂing glitches and “empty periods” since 2010. This pall will lift in October, and by next summer your popularity will be re-established in big, joyous ways. The underlying problem? Volatility in ﬁnancial and sexual zones has left you uncertain about who/what to “attach to.” This led to tension – the enemy of popularity. Contemplate this Monday-Wednesday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The accent remains on optimism, popularity, social delights, entertainment, ﬂirtation and wish fulﬁllment – enjoy, especially Wednesday noon to Friday. Sunday’s mellow, wise, offers relationship harmony. For the past few years, your career has struggled and presented you with inexplicable glitches, just as it does this Monday to Wednesday. The root “cause” has been a shifting home or lack of a solid foundation (family support?) coupled with relationship volatility. The career problem will largely end by Oct. 5 onward (though the volatility and “shifting home” won’t). Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: March forth on ambitious fronts, especially Wednesday afternoon to Friday. Lifestyle and health changes go well Sunday, as do intimacy and ﬁnances. You can ﬁnd a workable plan. Good day to invest in large machinery. Monday to Wednesday highlights your major problem this decade: glitches and barriers in educational, ethical, publishing, legal, cultural or international (far travel) zones. Root cause: changeable work conditions and/or stress. The good news is, these problems will shrink by half from October onward. (There isn’t any bad news.) Saturday brings hope, joy! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: This is a lovely, smooth and enlightening week, except for the Monday to Wednesday period, when problems (re)erupt in sexual, ﬁnancial, research, diagnostic, health and/or lifestyle areas. These problems are likely not new – some have been around since 2008, some since 2010. The difﬁculties will be reduced by half from Oct. 5 onward – the same date marks a “new future” for you, in the sense that a wet blanket lifts off your social, romantic situations, and you will grow much more optimistic. Decide now, between quick or delayed money, casual or committed intimacy.
August 12 - 18, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The mystery continues, so be a detective. You have 10 days to ﬁnd all the clues or “evidence.” The accent lies on depths, sexual urges, ﬁnancial manoeuvres, lifestyle changes, commitments and consequences. Wednesday noon to Friday highlight these concerns, then Saturday brings understanding – you see all these (sex, ﬁnances, et al) in a bigger picture. Tackle chores Sunday – you’ll succeed easily. This week’s only challenges arise in relationships Monday to Wednesday: be diplomatic, realize others hold the “temporary aces.” Root of the problem: your security is erratic. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A great week! Sunday’s romantic, Wednesday to Saturday bring exciting meetings, perhaps new love. But Monday to Wednesday brings a ﬂare-up of employment and health problems that have irritated you for a few years. Avoid wonky wiring, dangerous machinery. Seek a diagnosis. A government agency will either help or obstruct you. Nervous stress (probably associated with travel, friends, or a legal or cultural matter) is at the root of those work or health problems. Stress strips us of emotional feeling and sensation, two necessities. By October, the problems will ebb to half. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The main accent lies on work, health, machinery and dependents. You can take good steps forward in these zones Wednesday noon to Friday morning. (Aug. 12, too, if a dependent is involved.) For a few years, romance, creativity and risky ventures have run into brick walls. Some of these walls will crumble by October. Meanwhile, you can get yourself ready for future love, pleasure, creativity, etc., by seeing what is throwing up these walls: desire for money is the main “brick-builder.” (By summer 2013 onward, lucky love, creativity, will re-enter.) A friend, a prospect, Saturday! email@example.com • Reading: 604-560-1269

Lakers fighting for playoff life Tom Berridge
It’s come down to all or nothing for the Burnaby Lakers senior A lacrosse team. The Lakers fell 10-6 to the Langley Thunder in Game 3 of the Western Lacrosse Association best-of-seven semifinal playoff at the Langley Events Centre on Tuesday. Game 4 was played Thursday in Burnaby after NOW deadlines. “We’re fighting for our lives,” said Burnaby head coach Bob Johnston. “We’re truly missing our two young guys, (Jackson) Decker and (Casey) Jackson. We’re just a step slower at every turn.” Burnaby fell behind 3-1 after the opening 20 minutes and trailed 6-2 midway through the middle period after Carlton Schuss had brought the visitors to within a goal with his first of the series in the opening minute of the frame. Langley built up a six-goal advantage into the final stanza before Colton Clark potted a pair of goals 18 seconds apart at the 13-minute mark of the period. Dan Lewis stopped 38 Langley shots, one more than Thunder keeper Brodie MacDonald. Shaun Dhaliwal, with three goals, and Scott Jones, with a pair of coun-
ters, currently lead the squad with nine playoff points apiece. “We’re still there. … We’re still on top of the goalie, but the shots aren’t dropping,” Johnston added.
Canada wins first Olympic team medal in 76 years
A late goal in extra time by Diana Matheson gave the Canadian women’s soccer team the country’s 10th bronze medal of the London Olympic Games. After the team’s heroic, but heartbreaking 4-3 overtime loss to the United States in the Olympic semifinal two days earlier, Canada defeated France 1-0 to win the third-place medal in Coventry, England on Thursday. It was Canada’s first Summer Olympic Games team medal in 76 years. Canada’s last team medal was a silver won in men’s basketball, following a 19-8 loss to the United States in the gold-medal final in Berlin in 1936. The third-place finish by the women’s national soccer team was the bestever result in a major international competition in program history.
Burnaby Minor wins provincial mosquito AA title Tom Berridge
Troy Landreville/burnaby now
Check mate: Burnaby’s Justin Salt, in black, checks Langley’s Matt MacGrotty to the carpet in Game 3 of the WLA semifinal playoff.
“Last year, we struggled to get players out the back door. This year, it’s the front door. We’re a bit snakebitten there, too. But we need to play better all over the floor.”
The Burnaby Minor Braves are the new provincial moquito AA champions. Game MVP Matthias Vaid overcame pre-game sickness to lead the Braves, allowing just one run on two hits, while striking out five batters in a 13-2 win over Oceanside in the championship final on Aug. 5. Nicholas Macpherson earned the save in the sixinning final. Simon Bailie led a ninehit Burnaby onslaught with two hits, including a triple and three runs batted in. “This is the best team I’ve ever had and the first (B.C. title) as head coach,” said Brent Swannie, who shared the coaching duties with Glen Macpherson. “We put it all together when we had to.” Oliver Zhou was named the top offensive player at the provincials, garnering a total of nine runs and seven hits at the plate, including five RBI and two home runs. Zhou also excelled on the mound, striking out 12 batters in Burnaby’s two earlier pool wins over Vernon and Surrey, allowing just four hits and one earned run. The Braves advanced to the final with a 16-8 win

over Penticton. Mathew Ponis clubbed his first-ever dinger in the win, garnering three RBI in a two-hit performance. Game MVP Curtis Alsop struck out three batters and reached base three times for Burnaby. The Braves opened with a 13-2 win over Gibsons. MVP Devin Alsop had five RBI and closed out the win on the mound. Jordan Swannie, who received seven stitches in the face in the opening game, came back in the following pool game to lead Burnaby to a 16-12 win over Oceanside, allowing just two runs on three hits while batting in three runs and stealing three bases. Kellen Bjornson made the play of the game, snagging a low line-drive to third with two on for the final out. Aidan Caporale, at the plate, and Nathan Chua, in the outfield, turned in stellar plays to help Burnaby to a 5-1 win over Surrey. Tristan Haggart belted a triple in the Braves’ only loss to Vernon at the provincials. Braves’ all-stars Swannie, Macpherson, Haggart, Ponis and Zhou played for the Burnaby Red Sox that put together a 27-0 record in league and interlock play this season.
