One well with clean drinking water could save the lives of approximately 1,000 West African citizens in the tiny republic of Benin. Members of Trinity Western University’s men’s soccer team, including Burnaby native Andrew Fink, got a first-hand opportunity to be part of that gift during a two-week mission retreat to the sub-Saharan country late last month. With the support of Global Aid Network’s (GaiN) water for life initiative, Trinity Western soccer players helped cap four new wells that could further help eradicate Benin’s record of having one of Africa’s highest death rates among children under the age of five. Although significantly improved in the last two decades, Water Page 8

City’s Mental Wealth Society loses funding Society missed application deadline by 15 minutes Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Walking through the Burnaby Mental Wealth Society’s clubhouse near Metrotown, it looks more like a home than a drop-in centre. A few members watch movies on a bigscreen TV – bought only this year – in the first-floor recreation room while others sit around the kitchen table peeling potatoes

for the evening meal. The décor is simple and homey, with beribboned hats and various art projects from the members on the walls. But the most noticeable thing about the two-storey clubhouse is the 10 to 20 people passing through the halls, speaking with respect, candour and humour to the other members. Burnaby residents with mental illnesses, such as Jim Tessley and Carmina Tinaburri, take refuge at the clubhouse as a place of non-judgment and comfort. But they may lose their refuge at the end of the summer.

“It keeps me from staying home doing nothing and getting depressed,” said Tessley in an interview at the clubhouse. “I have a good time. There’s no bad vibes.” He has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, he said, and relies on the community at the clubhouse for support. Tessley – a member and past-president of the society – contacted the NOW this week when the society found out it was losing its funding from Fraser Health as of Aug. 31. The clubhouse has been in the Burnaby community for 13 or 14 years, Tessley said,

and has received funding through Fraser Health since it was established. The society was formed about 18 years ago, he added, and he has been a member for almost as long. “This place kept a lot of people from going into the psych ward,” he said. The society was told by Fraser Health to prepare a detailed application form for funding this year with 17 working days’ notice in April, according to Tessley. It was the first time since the clubhouse was established that it was required to submit such an application, he said. Clubhouse Page 8

District approves new anti-homophobia policy Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Burnaby school trustees voted unanimously to pass the district’s anti-homophobia policy on Tuesday night. The decision was met by a round of applause in a packed boardroom, while hundreds of supporters rallied outside, their cheers heard from within. The board’s draft policy on homophobia and heterosexism has been at the centre of controversy for weeks now, drawing fire from an ad hoc group of parents who say the policy infringes their rights to raise their children Visit www.burnabynow.com for a video of the meeting and rally according to their moral beliefs. That opposition irked longtime trustee Ron Burton. “I’ve been a trustee here for a long time and I’m somewhat disturbed by all the controversy around the policy. It’s always been my opinion if there something you can do to help a child be safer, then so be it,” Burton said, adding that a lot of the controversy was over the idea that homosexuality is a sin. Trustees reviewed changes the board’s policy committee made after an extended public input period. The new definition of heterosexism, as per the policy, “refers to the assumption that all people are heterosexual and that heterosexuality is superior and more desirable for all people than any other sexual orientation.” Also new, the term transphobia was added and defined as the “irrational fear or hatred of, aversion to, and discrimina-

made the transition to Carver have known Mr. Darcy since their time in elementary school. “He knows those students quite well,” Boonstra said. “He holds a very special part in everybody’s heart here in the Carver community. … Everybody knows about Mr. Darcy.” Mr. Darcy, named after a character in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, serves as a bridge while Boonstra is working with the students. “When there’s a little dog, they talk to the dog, and cuddle the dog, that’s a bridge where relationships can start to happen. It’s a nice way to interact with the students,” she said. “If a student was very upset about something they would come and seek him out and cuddle him or take a walk around the school.” When Boonstra helps teach kids appropriate behaviour, (if they have autism or Down syndrome for instance,) Mr. Darcy’s presence can have a calming effect. “He’s just a very sweet, calm little guy. His eyes just melt hearts. He has little Smartie eyes,” she said, adding that students get to play or walk with Mr. Darcy as a reward for good behaviour. According to the St. John Ambulance,

research shows that therapy dogs, like Mr. Darcy, help people recover more quickly from surgery and strokes and can reduce illness-associated loneliness, depression and anxiety. That’s why the non-profit group runs the Therapy Dog Program, of which Mr. Darcy is a graduate. Mr. Darcy has also changed over the years, as the students have grown. No longer the cowering frightened poodle, Mr. Darcy prances comfortably through Carver’s busy hallways. For his graduation ceremony, Mr. Darcy wore a black tuxedo, complete with bowtie, and a little graduation hat. After the students received their diplomas, he walked across the stage to receive a tiny award, tied to a little teddy bear, recognizing his special achievements as a therapy dog. For Boonstra, Mr. Darcy has helped her personally, as well. “I myself at the time had fled an abusive relationship, so we met each other at the perfect time. We both needed each other,” she said, adding she felt honoured and thrilled about Mr. Darcy’s graduation. “Instead of becoming bitter and angry about our past, we became better individuals, and we are now helping others, young and old, and we are bringing joy and happiness into their lives as well.”

Home invasion suspects sought Burnaby RCMP are looking for three suspects following a violent home invasion on Tuesday. According to Cpl. Rick Skolrood, three armed men forced their way into a residence in the 7000-block of Burris Street, just after noon on Tuesday, and tied up a 19-year-old woman who was home alone at the

time. The intruders threatened the victim with a knife. Police say the attack appears to have been targeted as the culprits had inside knowledge of the home’s security system and valuables. The thieves made off with two personal safes and a computer tower, though police cannot say what was in

either safe. The only description the victim was able to give police was that suspects are Asian. Anyone with information about the attack is asked to call the Burnaby RCMP’s serious crime section at 604294-7922 or Crime Stoppers B.C. at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

find someone in the school system to confide in – and, hopefully, that person will be able to help that young person. Perhaps, in time, those parents will even question their own beliefs and assumptions and make a decision to become better informed. And, perhaps, they will learn from their son and daughter and, if not understand them, at least accept them as they are. But perhaps they won’t. And that’s reason enough to institute the policy. Loving parents who carry placards and talk about parental rights also carry

parental responsibilities. And surely one of the responsibilities of parenthood is not to consider children as one’s personal property, but as unique individuals who also have rights. Many of those who are opposed to the policy claim that sexuality is a choice. We don’t know if that is true or not. But we do believe that wilful ignorance is a choice. And ignorance is a prime ingredient for prejudice. And for those who invoke God’s name – we agree with William Penn’s plea: “O Lord, help me not to despise or oppose what I do not understand.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Acceptance goes both ways Dear Editor:

Re: ‘Knee-jerk’ labelling is wrong, Burnaby NOW, June 8. SFU humanities professor, Paul Crowe, claims the Burnaby school board policy 5.45 is “over-simplified” but doesn’t say by whom. His comment that Canada has a long record of close-mindedness and intolerance in regard to the culture of immigrants also works in reverse. Assimilating into a cohesive whole must be worked on by both sides, unfortunately a majority of immigrants insist on our society accepting their culture adherences. The diversity and cultural uniqueness of immi-

grants in our community is an additional benefit that will become a homogeneous lifestyle for us only if rationale conciliation is undertaken. Making wild allegation about the Burnaby school board being “left-wing driven” only proves there is more than a religious theme at work in this situation. The tone at these rallies is highly suggestive of bias aimed at our Burnaby school trustees and city council. An example is the May 10 protest rally where spokesperson George Kovacic advised rally sympathizers to toss out the Burnaby school board trustees along with city council and, for reasons not explained, unions were included. The Parents’ Voice faction also provided

To date everything points to the willingness of the Parents’ Voice to explain the “real truth” behind the BSB policy 5.45 while consciously hiding their own motives. I attempted to question Mr. Kovacic at the May 10 rally on issues concerning the lack of background on Parents’ Voice such as what religious or political affiliations they have or were they simply concerned parents. The only piece of information I got was the opposition was created by a Muslim group of activists.

Taylor will be missed Dear Editor:

It was with regret that I read of Chief Superintendent Rick Taylor’s transfer to another position within the RCMP. Since Chief Taylor became the Officer in Charge of the Burnaby detachment in 2007, I have had cause to call the RCMP on several occasions. The response was always immediate and the results were excellent. I have written notes to Chief Taylor thanking him for the integrity, professionalism, and caring his officers always demonstrate. He has always responded. I feel Chief Taylor has had a very positive effect in Burnaby and has accomplished many good things during his time here. I wish Chief Superintendent Rick Taylor the best of luck and sincerely hope he is happy in his new position.

Policy has parents worried about education policies Dear Editor:

Re: Burnaby school board unanimously passes anti-homophobia policy (online, www.burnabynow.com, June 14) Policy 5.45 adopted by the Burnaby School District has many parents concerned that their children will be required to receive education contrary to their moral and religious convictions, especially as it regards education in the belief that nonheterosexual inclinations and behaviours are morally equivalent to heterosexual relations within marriage. Policy 5.45 states that subject areas where students may encounter this in the curriculum includes but, importantly, is not limited to Social Studies, Social Justice 12, Health and Career Education, and Personal Planning. The policy restricts alternative instruction outside the classroom, an option that would appeal to many parents, only to the Health and Career Education curriculum. The Burnaby school district’s Policy 5.40 on animal dissection recognizes the legal obligation of the school district to accommodate cultural, religious, or ethical objections by allowing students to receive alternative delivery for that part of the science curriculum. This clearly demonstrates that the Burnaby school district is aware of its legal obligation to provide alternative delivery across all curricula and not just the Health and Career Education curriculum. Alternative delivery is a right for all students and parents for any curricula that violates their cultural, religious or ethical convictions.

Schools: Opinion was insulting continued from page 6

extra help is never offered, and the graduation rates will never be comparable to private institutions. At the end of the day, the main difference lies in the willingness to help of the teachers, and the discipline instilled both at home and at school. Also, I need to point out that at the semi-private schools I attended, the teachers were in fact paid less then public school teachers. Did we ever hear or see a strike take place? No. Did the teachers remain dedicated and assist in disciplining and

assuring their students progressed at the right pace? Yes. In conclusion, private schools are entitled to their share of funding, and even if the money were to be taken away, the education would still be a lot higher than the average public school. Just a quick side note in response to Matthew Claxton’s remarks about having a hospital down the street where you had to pay to get in, I’d love that. Why should those who earn more of an income, pay more in taxes, more in medical benefits, still

receive the same form of health care as those who don’t? Yes, as Canadian citizens we should all be entitled to health care, and equal rights, but where are the equal rights for those who earn more? Regardless, I’m not sending this so this gets published in the Burnaby NOW (you can publish it if you really want to), I’m sending this because socialist views are not appreciated by a lot of your readers. I found this article to be downright degrading, insulting and ridiculous. Sacha Smith is a parent and a student at SFU.

Clubhouse: Burnaby Mental Wealth Society loses funding continued from page 1

The society was late turning it in by a matter of 15 minutes, he said, adding it was because of the complexity of the paperwork. Less than a week ago, the society was told the application was rejected because it was late. “But the battle isn’t over,” Tessley said. “We’re not giving up.” The society runs many different programs at the house, including meal programs twice a day, a writing club twice a week, a baking group, a community garden, and various events throughout the year, including an annual camping trip that was cancelled this summer due to the loss of funding. Tinaburri, who has lived in Burnaby for 20 years, found out about the clubhouse in ’95, after she’d had her second breakdown and was attending a day program. The society was looking for someone with a mental illness who could run a few programs, and she began working for them, she said. She resigned last year because of her health, Tinaburri said, but is still a member and intends to run for a spot on the board. “I’ve learned so much as a person here,” she said, adding she wants to continue to be a source of support at the clubhouse. It’s tough to deal with the stigma and health issues of a mental illness, Tinaburri said, but the other members of the clubhouse have helped her realize she isn’t

alone. “It’s a family here,” she said. John Johnston, who has been president of the board for the past nine years, estimates there are about 300 members. Many are past the age of being able to work or are too ill to do so, he pointed out, and can’t be served by the typical vocational programs put out by other mental health agencies. The cost of maintaining the clubhouse and its programs is about $300,000 per year, according to Johnston. The society is hoping to find other avenues of funding after losing the money from Fraser Health, possibly from the community and federal programs, he said. Roy Thorpe, spokesperson for Fraser Health, said that while the application was only late by a brief period of time, the request for proposals required a specific deadline. The health authority put out the call for proposals in April after reviewing mental health services in Burnaby and assessing where there were duplicate services, or services missing, as in North Burnaby, he said. The entire amount of funding, plus other program funding, will be going to a new Canadian Mental Health Association clubhouse that will open in September, he said. Details about the new clubhouse will be released later in the month. www.twitter.com/janayafe

Water: Local man part of mission from Trinity Western University continued from page 1

Benin’s infant mortality rate is still listed at 63 deaths for every 1,000 live births. The life expectancy for adults remains below the age of 60. The consumption of water carrying many forms of water-borne diseases is largely responsible for the deaths among the young and elderly. That made GaiN’s goal, since 2004, of drilling 70 wells in the tiny republic, and TWU’s help in contributing a small part to that effort, very satisfying, said Trinity Western head coach

Pat Rohla. “It gives us an appreciation for what we have here,” Rohla said in a TWU press release. “It gives us an incentive to go and do some more.” It will also increase the bond between players and a soccer program that has made it to the Canadian Interuniversity Sports men’s soccer championships five out of the last six seasons, but has yet to win it outright. “I know it will have a long-lasting effect for the team, for the program and for the guys who went on

the trip,” Rohla added. “There will be a really strong bond in a lot of different ways, both on the field and off. “The amount of conversation that happened and the amount of actually getting to know what guys believe and what’s going on in their lives, and opening up to each other was crazy. “And now, I’m sure we can all say easily that when we play now, we’re definitely playing for the guy right beside us.” For more on this story see page 35.

Learning: Jolene Boyd brings her baby boy, Ciaran, into a classroom at Douglas

Road Elementary in 2007 for the Roots of Empathy program, designed to teach students compassion and empathy. The program has just been expanded.

Roots of Empathy expands Premier Christy Clark announced that the provincial government is expanding a program that brings babies into classrooms to teach elementary students empathy skills. Clark made the announcement Monday, June 13, from Burnaby’s Morley Elementary. “Children deserve to grow up without fear of bullying, and as premier I promised to provide programs to students that teach them core values like respect, kindness and empathy,” said Clark in a media statement. “The Roots of Empathy program

delivers on that promise and helps teach young children how to act towards each other. Bullying has no place in our schools and parents deserve to know their children are safe in school. Roots of Empathy will help accomplish that goal.” Roots of Empathy was designed to help children develop their emotional and social competence, increase empathy and reduce levels of violence among schoolaged kids. The provincial government used to fund the program to the tune of about $1.4 million a year, but that

figure dropped to zero in 2009 thanks to the recession. Now, Clark has promised to pay $800,000 per year to support both the Roots of Empathy and a preschool version of the program, called Seeds of Empathy. – Jennifer Moreau

Students cook up a way to help Two West Vancouver high school students use their own money to start up a breakfast program at Second Street Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

On a rainy afternoon at Second Street Community School, about a dozen elementary students anxiously wait in the staff kitchen for two girls from a West Vancouver high school – Lexi Macdonald and Tatiana Mawani. Every third Wednesday of the month, the teens make muffins with a group of Second Street kids. The idea is to teach the elementary students healthy cooking habits, while the muffins help feed other kids (and sometimes themselves) through the school’s breakfast program. Lexi and Tatiana came up with the idea and covered some of the costs with their own pocket money, simply to help the kids. When the teens arrive, a chorus of cheers breaks out, and the frenzy begins. The kids gather round two circular tables, while the girls quickly unpack the ingredients. Eyes widen and excited chatter fills the room. Lexi and Tatiana have the students decipher the instructions on the back of the muffin box. There’s fierce competition over performing each task, and the students begin negotiations on who will crack eggs. “I’m awesome at cracking eggs,” says one girl. “Me too,” another chimes in. A third proposes they stir the batter with a giant (imaginary) spoon so all the kids can get their hands on it at once. While the muffins are in the oven, the kids feast on pizza that Lexi and Tatiana have brought. Not only do they learn how to cook while helping the breakfast program, they also get fed. The program started in January, and Lexi and Tatiana put up $120 of their own money to match a grant from the Vancouver Youth Philanthropy Council, a branch of the Vancouver Foundation set up for projects where kids help other kids. Second Street’s breakfast club was set up to feed kids who were coming to school hungry, often because their families can’t afford to feed them all the time. Numbers can vary, but roughly 25 kids are in the breakfast program in a school of around 360 children. The muffins provide a quick, healthy snack that the kids love. On a quick break, Lexi and Tatiana explain why they started the program that’s been such a hit, they’ve had to rotate groups so all interested kids get a chance to participate. “It’s because I grew up in Burnaby, but I go to school in West Van. It’s special for me to give back to your own community, which is Burnaby, which has provided so much for me,” Tatiana says. The kids learn to cook and help their own school, she says. Someday, they will provide for their own families, she adds. “Maybe one day, they can feed children who can’t provide for themselves.” The teens also get something out of it. “We get to meet all these kids,” Lexi says. “It’s a sense of self pride when we leave the school every Wednesday.”

In the kitchen:

At left, Gurveen Khera helps with the batter, while Lexi supervises. The muffins they bake go to kids in the school’s breakfast program.

“If you see how happy these kids are right now, we can’t really stop the program,” Tatiana says. “It provides them with something to do after school,” Lexi adds. Back in the kitchen, the kids are clearly thrilled. “Beckster” (aka Becky Portillo) gave the program a rave review. “I loved it so much I’m going to be a

baker,” says the 10-year-old. Grade 5 student Kionna Bandic likes the fact the program gives back to the school. “I feel pretty good about myself, and I feel pretty good about everyone else, too. It’s awesome that you get to make something and you get to share it with everyone else,” she says. This is the last day for the cooking program before school’s out for summer, and

the students present the teens with giant medals and hugs as tokens of appreciation. The girls have already decided to apply for another grant and continue next year. If they don’t get the money, they will pay for the program themselves. They aren’t looking for donations, nor do they have a website. They simply love helping these kids.

EDMONDS EXPRESS XPRESS COMMUNITY DRIVEN NEWS FOR THE RESIDENTS & BUSINESSES OF BURNABY-EDMONDS

Library gearing up for summer fun Kids can get a taste for reading this summer Theresa McManus EDMONDS EXPRESS The Tommy Douglas branch of the Burnaby Public Library is hoping youngsters will gobble up some good books this summer. The one-year-old Tommy Douglas branch is sure to be an inviting place to be for people of all ages this summer. As in past years, the library is offering a Summer Reading Club for children. "It's a B.C.-wide program," said Allison Knights, children's coordinator at the Tommy Douglas branch. "The theme this year is Savour Each Word." Participants can pick up a Summer Reading Club package and calendar on which they chart their summer reading. Anyone who reads, or is read to, for 15 minutes a day for 50 days earns a Summer Reading Club medal. For children who aren't old enough to read, parents can read to them, do rhymes or sing songs. Registration for the Summer Reading Club gets underway June 20. "Once they are in school, it is more about reading," Knights said. "Before then it can be about early literacy skills." One of the goals of the Summer Reading

Club is to stop the backward slide that sometimes occurs with students' reading skills during the summer holidays. Knights is not only the branch's children's librarian, but she is also a former participant of Summer Reading Club at the Burnaby library. "I liked having my name up on the wall in the library. Part of the fun of coming back after I joined the Summer Reading Club was coming back to the library and seeing if I could find my name on the wall," she said. "That is something we do for all the kids." In keeping with this year's food-related theme, kids will write their names on paper shaped like ice cream cones and fruit. "We will put their names up as part of our wall display," Knights said. "The next time they come in to visit, they can search and try to see that." A medal presentation ceremony takes at the library on Sept. 15. Students participating in the Summer Reading Club can also enter to win book prizes. A Summer Reading Club is also being offered for teenagers. In addition to an online reading club that's been offered in the past, the Burnaby Public Library Reading fun: Librarian Allison Knights, left, enjoys a book with Yolanda Ridge and her five-year-old PHOTO Larry Wright is offering its own teen reading club this twin boys, Spencer and Oliver.

Fun for all at East Burnaby's Canada Day celebration this year Theresa McManus EDMONDS EXPRESS This year's Canada Day event in East Burnaby may be on the move but it still promises a good time for all who attend. The Canada Day celebration is usually held in Richmond Park but it's currently a construction zone. The site will be the home of a new community centre and swimming pool facility. This year's Canada Day celebration will take place in Ron McLean Park from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Friday, July 1. "There will be bingo, bouncy castles, face painting," said Christy Beattie, a recreation programmer at Eastburn Community Centre. "There will be balloon twisters. There will be a basketball tournament for the older youth. The wading pool opens." Beattie said Canada Day festivities in East Burnaby have attracted up to 2,500 people in past years. "All ages. Every age seems to be interested in a different thing," she said. "It's very fun. It seems to be good because there is something for all ages." Organizers expect to see some new faces at this year's Canada Day celebration because of the new location, but they hope

the folks who regularly attend the event will still make their way to the new site. A shuttle will transport people from Edmonds Community Centre to Ron McLean Park at 10:30 and 11 a.m., and will return to the community centre at 2:30 and 2:45 p.m. "We will add more if we have to," Beattie said. Multicultural entertainment and community booths from preschool, church and library services are also part of the fun on Canada Day. The Byrne Creek Streamkeepers will also set up a booth. "They will be touring the creek," Beattie added. "There is a little stream that goes there."

Your insurer offers protection even when you travel! You’ve loaded the car and you’re off on vacation! You can relax because your insurance broker has you covered. Personal items, such as cameras, camping equipment, and other items that are covered by your home, condo or tenants insurance are also covered even when you take them with you on vacation. Home-based business items, however, require additional coverage, but at very little extra cost.

Protecting your home while vacationing

Because so many families take their vacations during June, July and August, these months are also the most popular months for burglary offences. In addition, power and freezer failures, as well as broken water heaters and pipes don’t go on vacation. Here are some tips to protect your home and valuables. Give a key to a trusted friend or neighbour so they can check inside the house every few days, take in the mail, turn on lights and open curtains periodically. In short, the house should be made to look lived-in. Have your lawn mowed during your absence. Disconnect the garage door opener. Lock the door between the garage and the house. Check that all other doors and windows are locked.

Saturday: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm

Call us today

for a better insurance experience!

Never hide a key anywhere outside. If you will be away from your home for fewer than 30 days you do not need to inform your insurer. However, you should still arrange for a competent person to look in on your home every day or two to make sure that everything is in good order.

For longer absences

If you are away for more than 30 days you should contact your insurance broker to determine whether you will need to inform your insurer. In all cases, you may want to arrange for a competent person to look in on your home every day to make sure that everything is in good order. Your insurance broker is your partner in protecting your home and your valuables, which makes for a stress-free vacation. It’s also a good idea to talk to them about your vacation needs, such as extended medical insurance when traveling outside the province or the country.

summer. More details about the Summer Reading Clubs can be found at www.bpl. bc.ca/kids. The Tommy Douglas branch will also be offering a number of activities for children participating in the Summer Reading Club. Crafternoons, which are being held on Fridays from July 15 to Aug. 12 from 2 to 3:30 p.m., will feature free weekly craft sessions with the theme of Savour Each Word. "They are food related crafts like seed mosaics," Knights said. "This is the first time we have done something like this

"I liked having my name up on the wall in the library. Part of the fun of coming back after I joined the Summer Reading Club was coming back to the library and seeing if I could find my name on the wall." Allison Knights, librarian where it is craft based." The Crafternoons at Tommy Douglas are open to kids aged six and up who are accompanied by a parent or guardian who is willing to participate. No registration is required but people are advised to come

early because space is limited (and daycare and other groups can't be accommodated for these sessions). A number of Storytime sessions will also take place in the Tommy Douglas Branch this summer, with each session lasting 45 minutes. Storytime for three- to six-year olds will take place on Tuesdays from July 19 to Aug. 16 at 1:30 p.m.;

Storytime for toddlers will be offered on Thursdays from July 21 to Aug. 18 at 10:30 a.m.; and Storytime for babies will run on Thursdays, from July 21 to Aug. 18 at 2:15 p.m. The library is a good place to chill out on those hot summer days, and keep you reading and working your imagination all summer long. "You can come in and browse and get books, get music, get DVDs to watch," Knights said. editorial@burnabynow.com

anadian music fans, do you have your tickets to the Odds concert yet? Don’t forget, Shadbolt Centre for the Arts is wrapping up its season with its Live at the ‘Bolt hurrah on Friday, June 24. The Odds are longtime Canadian favourites, with 20 years of music, four albums and hits like It Falls Apart, Eat My Brain, Make You Mad and Someone Who’s Cool – not to mention their gig as the house band at Rogers Arena during Canucks playoff games. They were profiled in the NOW earlier this month – if you missed the June 3 edition, you can still read the story online at www.burnabynow.com (just search for Odds). The Live at the ‘Bolt celebration is set to run from 6 to 9 p.m. in the atrium at the Shadbolt. Tickets are $15. You can find more information and buy tickets online at www. shadboltcentre.com. Also see the Odds’ website, www.oddsmusic.com, for more on the band.

Sound cloud

Here’s some good news for local theatregoers. Just received word via the Michael J. Fox Theatre newsletter that the theatre has recently installed an acoustic canopy over its stage. The 30 adjustable curved panels – a.k.a. the “acoustic cloud” – float over orchestras and choirs

Live at the ‘Bolt: The Odds are performing at the Shadbolt Centre on Friday, June 24.

to allow sound that would usually be lost in five-storey-high space to be directed back to the performers and into the audience seating area. The “cloud,” which is made of polycarbonate, stores away from the stage when it’s not in use, and it can be put in place within 20 minutes. And reports are that it’s making a big difference. “I am happy to say that the new acoustical panels hanging above the stage have made a dramatic improvement in the acoustics of the Michael J. Fox Theatre,” says Roger Cole, conductor of the Vancouver Youth Symphony Orchestra, in the newsletter. “The woodwinds and brass at the rear of the stage now project into the hall. The onstage acoustics are also

much better because it is easier for the musicians to hear each other. The entire sound of the hall feels more vibrant. They also look very impressive.” Good news! Michael J. Fox Theatre, for those who don’t know, is at 7373 MacPherson Ave., at Burnaby South Secondary. For more about the theatre, see www. michaeljfoxtheatre.ca.

Clef concert

You can catch some of Burnaby’s finest young musical talent onstage on June 26. The Clef Society is holding its honour recital and strawberry tea, featuring top talent from its 2011 festival, in a special program at Shadbolt Centre for the Arts. It’s set to run from 1 to 5 p.m. in Room 103, and

Young dancers from Burnaby who aspire to professional careers should take note of this one. The Goh Ballet Youth Company is holding an open audition on Tuesday, June 21 for advanced-level dancers aged 16 to 24. It’s looking for dancers to become company members, as well as participants – who take part alongside members to further their skills and knowledge. Female dancers should be prepared for pointe work, and male dancers should note there will be pas de deux. Auditions will start at 5 p.m. at the Goh Ballet Academy, 2345 Main St. in Vancouver, in Studio 1. Register by emailing info@ gohballet.com or calling 604-872-4014, ext. 126. For those not familiar with it, the Goh Ballet Youth Company is a program administered by Goh Ballet Academy for young dancers who want to pursue a professional career. Check out their website at www.gohballet.com for more.

Behind every work zone cone is a worker in a vulnerable position. Each cone stands for someone’s father, mother, son, or daughter.

Perfect parenting? Not likely FAMILY TIES

S

Christina Myers

ome people think of parenthood as this happy land of unicorns and rainbows, forever supplying some new moment of inspiration or delight (and sometimes it actually is). Some people think of it as drudgery and toil with little reward (and, let’s be honest, sometimes it is that too.) For me, I imagine the last few years – the years since my first child was born – to what early seafaring life must have been like for sailors: fraught with potential peril at every turn but gosh, who would want to miss that wind in your hair, the beautiful sunsets and the chance to discover some new, far-off land. In other words, really darn scary some of the time, but worth the ride. Like those sailors, parents have to contend with innumerable worries, some

At one point, I would have given my left arm for a book titled “Look here for the guaranteed answer on every single parenting dilemma (or, how not to screw up your kid forever).” But I’ve learned, as most parents do, that once you spend the first few years of your first-born’s life lying awake at night wondering in what ways you have indeed screwed your kid up forever, you either take a deep breath, grab some reality and chill out on your own – or you get pregnant again, and the chill-out phase is forced upon you.

Parents: Pondering ‘right’ choices continued from page 30

for our new casualness, but consider it a boon – you get a much more relaxed parent hovering over you, or, more likely, not hovering over you ‘cause, you know, there’s a toddler to keep busy and laundry to do. Forget about hour-long internal debates carried out while standing in the aisle of a toy store, on the merits of one toy or over another – you’ve realized that the kitchen broom, the TV remote, and the cat’s tail will provide way more entertainment than the expert-developed baby-genius-maker watchamacallit sitting in the corner and collecting dust. Stressing about germs? It’s a tired old cliché, but it’s oh-so-true: first babies get the “boiled for exactly five minutes and left to air dry” pacifiers – second babies get the one you just dug out from under the couch. Like those sailors, a few crossings makes experts of us all – those dangerous waves don’t seem so dangerous, it gets easier to walk on deck without stumbling, and eventually you realize that you’ll survive another day. Even so, there will always be decisions to make and some of them will still warrant genuine worry. I’ve recently passed through the gauntlet of one of parenting’s big debates: to return to work or stay home? For some, the answer is clear cut – they know instinctively that they’re cut out for one or the other. For others, personal preferences take a back seat to financial considerations: someone may prefer to work outside the home, but the money left over after daycare costs make it untenable; conversely, another person may prefer to stay home, but the second

income is needed to keep the bills paid. For better or worse, I found myself in something of an in-between position: I enjoy my work, and I enjoy being home. I feel fulfilled by, and enjoy, both roles. Financially, it’s all a bit of a wash – two incomes are nice, but we could survive on one if we were extremely careful (which is a good thing, when you consider what’s left on payday after daycare, gas for commuting and all those other “hidden” costs of working). Since you’re reading this, you can guess which route I took. Was it right? I could spend countless hours pondering the pros and cons, the benefits and negatives, the million “what-ifs” that go along with each choice (and trust me, I have) be it something big like returning to work, or something small, like the dozens of everyday choices that parents make. But I’ve learned a fundamental truth when it comes to parenting: chances are extremely good that whatever choice you’ve made is the right one for you and for your family. So stop worrying so much – your children will probably go through at least one phase of thinking you are the worst parent in the history of the world (most likely when they are about, oh, 13) even if you did everything “right.” Reporter Christina Myers has just returned from maternity leave and has two children.

Juke crossover is a bold move by Nissan NOW contributors

I

f you like how it looks, you’ll love what it has to offer. The Nissan Juke is a blend of sporty car and SUV utility in a compact, highly fuel-efficient and affordable package. The Juke is already a hit with consumers, as more than 50,000 were sold around the world within four months of its launch last year. Yes, its styling tends to have a polarizing effect on potential buyers. Yet even if it’s not to your liking, you still have to credit Nissan for daring to be different. And the differences go beyond esthetics, as the Juke comes with one of the most advanced powertrains you can buy for less than $25,000. Beneath its bold design, Juke packs a hot little turbocharged, direct injection engine. Two other interesting new technologies offered in the Juke are a torque vectoring all-wheeldrive (AWD) system and a twin use I-Con display system, which comes with the higher SL trim level. Small but powerful, the one and only engine is a turbocharged 1.6-litre

direct fuel-injection (with intercooler), 16-valve, fourcylinder that’s rated at 188 horsepower and 177 lbs.-ft of torque. A new member of the exclusive “over 100 hp/litre” club, this engine offers both excellent performance and fuel economy. Driving in a straight line on a dry level road, an all-wheel-drive version of the Juke sends all power (or torque) to the front wheels to achieve best fuel economy. Depending on road conditions, it can automatically split torque up to 50:50 between the front and rear wheels, like other AWD systems. On top of that, the Juke with AWD also has a new torque vectoring feature on its rear axle that allows it to split torque from sideto-side across the rear axle. The primary value of this feature is more assured and better cornering, especially on a slippery or slick road surface. It corrects tire slip and gives the steering a more positive cornering feel. Located in the centre stack of the dash of a Juke SL is the new “I-CON system” (for Intelligent Control System). It’s a clever dual-function module that can change its look, colour and task, and

simultaneously handle both the climate control system and an array of driving modes. In “Climate” mode the display shows the interior temperature settings and surrounding switches allow air flow preferences. Press “D-Mode” and the display shows engine-and drive-related dials and information, and the buttons change colour and function to allow three driving modes, Normal, Sport and Eco. The very well-equipped base Juke is just $19,998. It comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, full power with keyless entry, air conditioning, four-wheel disc brakes, a stability control system, steering wheel audio controls, heated side mirrors, a Bluetooth hands-free phone connection, a security system, audio and iPod interface and a CD player. Our test Juke SL ($23,548) was a front-drive version and came with the standard six-speed manual transmission. It can also be ordered with the CVT automatic, a $2,300 option. The AWD system adds another $1,800 and it only comes with the CVT transmission. According to Nissan the Juke is not an SUV or

a CUV … it’s an S-CUV or Sport Cross Utility Vehicle. It’s manufactured at plants in Oppama, Japan and Sunderland in the U.K. I have actually visited the Oppama plant several times, and I’m always excited to see the Juke being made inside Nissan’s advanced factory.

Nissan: Design may be a gamble, but vehicle is a big winner continued from page 33

of its styling cues from Nissan’s Qazana, an active lifestyle concept vehicle first shown at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. Based on Nissan’s global B-platform, which also underpins the Cube, the Juke has a wide stance and short body overhangs front and back. The round headlights, below “crocodile eye” light combinations, are apparently rally car inspired. It has a sporty coupe look, from a side view, with “hidden” rear door handles. The “boomerang” shaped tail lights are another distinguishing feature, yet the back end also has a family resemblance to the bigger Nissan Murano.

The Inside

Despite Juke’s compact exterior dimensions, there’s comfortable seating space for four/five adults on the inside. The rear seatback has a 60/40-split fold-down

feature and it provides a reasonably flat extended cargo load floor. Juke’s distinctive motorcycle gas tankinspired centre console is another interesting design highlight. Painted in a highgloss finish, it comes in two colours (red or grey) to match the three interior upholstery colours offered.

Safety

Juke comes equipped with Nissan’s advanced dual-stage, dualthreshold front airbags. It also has roof-mounted curtain sideimpact airbags for both front and rear outboard occupants. The driver and front passenger have additional side-impact airbags and active head restraints. A tire pressure monitoring system and an electronic stability control system called Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) are standard. Standard security includes an immobilizer system.

The Drive

The official fuel economy numbers for the Juke were calculated while driving in the “normal” performance mode. Switching to either the Eco or Sport modes, however, instantly changes the Juke’s driving personality. In “Eco” mode the engine is slower to respond to gas pedal inputs and you have to press your foot deeper to get a reaction. Leave a little earlier, drive more relaxed, take it easy and save some gas. Selecting “Sport”, makes the engine jump into action quicker when you touch the gas pedal and it stiffens the steering for a more positive feel. It’s not the slickest sixspeed manual transmission I’ve had the opportunity to drive, but it’s still a good one. The clutch action is light, the shift lever is nicely positioned within easy reach and I liked having the reverse gear on the left side of the selector gate.

Even though Juke has a short wheelbase and a suspension that’s on the firm side, the ride was surprisingly comfortable. Not a first choice for

long-drive comfort, but still better than most in this price bracket.

The Score

The all new Nissan Juke

may be a bit of a design gamble. But it is a put-money-on winner in every other way, including outstanding value.

Getting a wish from dream well dug Helping others a good life lesson for team of winners Tom Berridge sports editor

A goalkeeper with Trinity Western University Spartans will likely never feel alone in the nets again following an unforgettable experience in Africa last month. Burnaby Central Secondary grad Andrew Fink recently returned from a two-week missions trip to the tiny West African republic of Benin in May with the varsity men’s soccer team. There, the Trinity Western players, helped run soccer clinics, build a church structure in a remote village and played three matches against local clubs, but most rewardingly, they helped cap four wells that will supply clean water to the rural populace through the Global Aid Network’s water for life initiative. Clean drinking water is estimated to add 15 to 20 years to the life expectancy of villagers. At present, the life expectancy of adults living in the rural areas of Benin is below 60 years of age. Water-borne diseases from contaminated ground water are considered largely responsible as well for a high infant mortality rate in the tiny West African country. “It really was something that has altered my perception and how things go around,” said Fink, who helped Central win a B.C. high school soccer championships in 2005 and two national club championship titles with the Burnaby Selects Royals. Fink carried with him a winning tradition, helping TWU to the Canadian Interuniversity Sports national championships in 2008 and ’09, winning a silver and bronze medal,

there was always someone there to help us out. “But during my time at Trinity Western I was asked to reflect on what got me there. It seemed to me that the stars always lined up for me,” he said. “I never was conciously

Clan wrestler wins U.S. world trial

Simon Fraser University wrestler Helen Maroulis was named to the U.S. national women’s team for a third consecutive year. Maroulis won her 55-kilogam weight class at the 2011 world team trials in Oklahoma City last week. Maroulis, who was second at last year’s trials, defeated Ashley Hudson by decision in both

aware of how many people had helped me get to where I was. Knowing that, almost made it an obligation for me to help others.” During their stay in Benin, formerly known as Dahomey, the players stayed in the coastal city of Cotonou, but each day were bused to the countryside, where they worked alongside GAiN leaders in remote villages. Benin, which covers an area of approximately 110,000 square kilometres has just 121 km of coastline and borders Togo on the west and Nigeria to the east Fink described the villages as primitive clay structures with thatched roofs and no mechanical advantages of any kind. Village women would walk up to 15 kilometres a day to and from neighbouring wells with heavy

rounds 1 and 2. Maroulis outpointed Hudson 10 and 2-0 in Round 1. She claimed a 6-2 decision and 3-0 win in the second round. With the win, Maroulis will compete at the senior world championships this fall. Last year, Maroulis placed second at the U.S. world trials after a third-place finish in 2009.

vessels on their heads that contained ground water for drinking, bathing and cooking “that you wouldn’t wash your car with,” Fink said. “But the single most thing I have taken away from that trip is you see the water they drink and how they live, and they are just as happy, if not more happy than we are.” It made him and his teammates rexamine their own priorities. “When you step outside your comfort zone with the guys there are things you wouldn’t see otherwise,” Fink added. “Everyone was being pushed.” At times, some could not hold back their tears and unabashedly broke down in front of their mates. All the players toiled long hours, up to 12 hours Africa Page 37

This season, Maroulis won four straight matches to win her weight class at the Women’s College Wrestling Association championships. Maroulis, and fellow American as well as Clan teammate Victoria Anthony are looking to compete for the United States at the Summer Olympics in London, England in 2012.

St. Thomas More Collegiate student Kevin Vigna won a second stop on the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour. Vigna, 15, who had already won a paid trip to the Callaway Junior World Golf Championship next month, put himself in line for a spot on Team Canada’s junior team following a tour win at Peace Portal in White Rock June 12. Vigna won the boys’ 14to-16 division with a sizzling two-round 147 to tie for low overall score in the competition. Vigna carded single round scores of 74 and 73 to finish at three-overpar and five shots clear of runner-up Alex Chen of Richmond. “Winning on the (tour) for a second time this year feels amazing,” said Vigna in a MJT press release. “I just enjoyed myself every minute I was out on the course.” Vigna, who led Chen by just single stroke after the first round, scored an eagle three on the opening hole of the second round. Earlier this year, Vigna helped STM win an unprecedented fourth consecutive B.C. School AA golf championship, finishing fourth overall with a one-overpar 145 on the Springs at Radium Resort course.

Athletes of year

St. Thomas More Collegiate recently named its annual athlete of the year awards. Mikey Carney, a Grade 11 athlete who participated in football, basketball and track and field for the Knights, won the senior male athlete award. Another multi-sport athlete, Sarah Hughes, was named the school’s senior female athlete. Hughes played on STM’s volleyball, basketball and soccer teams. Winners of the junior athletes of the year at STM were Alexis Llewellyn and Giovanni Trasolini.

It’s two tournaments down and two more to go for the gold-medal-winning A1 novice Burnaby Lakers. Burnaby won its second straight tournament title last weekend, claiming gold at the John Witt memorial Bellie Bowl in New Westminster following a 10-5 victory over North Delta.

HOGNESS,

Dianne Louise (Scott)

December 6, 1935 - June 8, 2011

It is with great sadness we announce that Dianne lost her courageous battle with cancer on June 8th, 2011. Our beloved wife, mother, mother in law, grandmother, great grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin and friend was taken from us far too soon. Dianne is survived by her loving husband Roy and their four children Carol (Martin), Karen (Ken), Rick (Debbie), Laurie; six grandchildren, Taryn, Tegan, Carly, Cory, Chris, Jenny; their three great grandchildren Taylor, Spencer, Stephen; her brother Robert Scott and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. She was predeceased by her father Desmond Scott, mother Dorothy Scott (Rae) and brother Dennis Scott. Born on December 6, 1935 in Vancouver, British Columbia, her family later moved to Crescent Beach where she spent much of her childhood, of which she had many special memories. Dianne had several careers through the years with the last being one of her greatest passions in life, hand-crafting porcelain dolls for her retail business that was in New Westminster the Twelfth Street Doll Company. Her talent for her craft won her several awards and she continued her love for making and collecting dolls even after retirement. Dianne was a passionate, kind, family-oriented person who lived life to the fullest. She will be dearly missed and forever remembered by all who knew and loved her. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Dianne’s memory to the BC Cancer Society. The family will be holding a private celebration of life. www.remembering.ca

Aries March 21 - April 19: The weeks ahead emphasize home, children, real estate, security, retirement, gardening, soul, nutrition and Mother Nature. It’s a splendid time for a camping vacation. (Better not to leave before June 28. You face many “home concerns” until then.) You will be ending some associations and projects now, perhaps to give new ones room to grow. Although this is usually a sluggish, restful period, you’re kept busy with a lot of communications, paperwork, errands – or wanderlust – now through July. Since your curiosity is up, investigate new income sources/ideas – they’re lucky! Taurus April 20-May 20: Be ambitious Sunday/ Monday – despite a subtle disagreement or heavyhanded legal or educational “pronouncement,” you’re on the path to success (for at least two years, financially, so be optimistic, make plans and go forth these months ahead!). Now to Aug. 2, you might spend too much, or be pushed to spend by government fees. Saving is your friend! Tuesday begins a month of paperwork, short trips, errands, casual acquaintances – you’ll be busy! Love is gentle, easy Monday to Wednesday, but you might doubt it: relax. Retreat, rest Thursday/Friday. Your energy surges Saturday p.m. Gemini May 21-June 20: This week isn’t easy for anyone. You could meet barriers or the need to compromise in finances or sex, especially Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday/Friday. On the plus side, your courage and determination grow now to early August, and so does your optimism. Group affairs grow; you’ll feel befriended. If someone criticized you to a group (secretly) these past few weeks, they prove ineffectual now. The month ahead emphasizes earnings, spending, possessions, sensuality and memory. Sunday’s gentle, mid-week’s ambitious (Wednesday best) and late week brings optimism and popularity!

Cancer June 21-July 22: A month of quietude and weariness ends Tuesday, as four weeks of high energy, charisma and effectiveness begin. Start important projects. Ask favours, call in markers. Until June 28 (next week) you might face opposition, or be attracted to a deeply alluring person. As usual, love is better than war. In the present week, especially Sunday to Tuesday, watch what you say to others: avoid secrets, gossip, etc. You are just beginning a splendid year-long popularity surge, especially at work. After Tuesday’s confusion/worry, grand inspiration flows Wednesday – follow hunches! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Tuesday begins a month of retreat, quietude and rest. Your career luck will stay high, even rise. You can work in the background to advance your position: you’ll be especially good with government, institutional or head-office contacts. (Though these present some difficulties this Sunday and Tuesday.) Your hopes and optimism will rise also, and despite your need for solitude, you could receive an unusual amount of calls and invitations. So grab your rest when you can. This week isn’t easy, so remain realistic and diplomatic, particularly in legal, travel, sex and financial zones. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Tackle your work Sunday/ Monday. Tuesday begins a month of celebration, flirtation, entertainment, optimism and popularity! You might meet someone very compatible in a group, someone who lifts you to humorous, good-natured heights. The year going tforward favours love – and far travel, learning, culture. Various problems and barriers confront you Sunday to Tuesday – don’t invest nor make any important commitment. This advice applies Thursday also. Inspiration returns Wednesday – and relationships turn from delusion to sweet knowing. Friday’s sexy, Saturday night’s loving, wise.

June 19 - 25, 2011

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: You feel romantic Sunday/ Monday, but events don’t help. Be cautious. Monday begins six weeks of partnership opportunities, possibly of legal hassles. Seek convergence, not dispute. If a partner begins talking about an international move, be wary. Recently, after a five-month respite, the sober side of your life returned to prominence – you can once again re-make your domestic, security, property and child-oriented situation – much more fortunately! (To next June.) Tuesday starts a month of ambition, and dealings with authorities. Reject relationships Thursday, embrace them Friday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Mysteries fade; enlightenment comes Tuesday onward (for a month). Expect widened understanding, gentle love, international contacts, religious, educational and cultural involvements. Your life, for the next three years, will be filled with opportunities (especially financial ones) and, if you’re single, with cheerful, attractive love prospects. Every odd-numbered month, and the 10 days before it, will promote these (relationships and opportunities). E.g., July (seventh month) qualifies, with late June. Minor communication snafus this week. Romance calls Wednesday and Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The (semi?) exciting events of the past few weeks yield now to a deeper, slower thrill, as intimacy, commitment, financial investment or clearing debts, grow more important for the month ahead. (It starts Tuesday morning – but make no commitments before June 28.) Secrets, research, intuition, dreams and hunches accompany this commitment trend. You might fall for someone new, or raise an ongoing romance to a more mature level, now through early August. If you’re the feisty type this phase can bring arguments and fights. Your choice! Domestic intuition strong Wednesday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Finish a project or chore Sunday/Monday. By late Monday onward (to August) a new task enters; and by Tuesday, a month of new horizons, fresh air and relationship excitement begins. This happens every early summer, but it’s more significant this year, as your romantic luck is beginning to climb strongly! If you’re married, the month ahead brings joys through children, vacation, sports and “winning.” (Singles get this, too.) Watch what you say – and legal parameters – midweek. Rest, rejuvenate, strengthen foundations Thursday/ Friday. Romance Saturday p.m. – join a group. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: It hasn’t been a strong summer for you, Aquarius, but the months ahead (12 of them) bring a strong, beneficial rebuilding period, which might be marked by the purchase of a new home, better rental, the entry of a new baby, lifefreeing therapy, or other good foundational moves. One of the first requirements of this new foundation will be work, which confronts you Tuesday onward for a few weeks. Dive into this eagerly (but cautiously before June 28, as the path’s a bit rocky). You could be fooled about money Tuesday, and make a bad bet. But money inspiration’s great Wednesday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Rest deeply Sunday/ Monday – Monday p.m. onward, your energy and charisma rise, and Tuesday morning begins a month of romance, creativity, pleasure and adventure! But Monday also starts six weeks of friction on the home front. Be gentle with parents and kids. Romantic urges outside the home might cause dissention within it. These same six weeks, you might have an opportunity to buy or sell real estate – OK, but strictly avoid moving into a new residence before Aug. 3. (It would “set up” long-term friction.) You might change sources of income. Joy Wednesday: thank God. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
