Brentwood development causes concern Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
A proposal for a large development in Brentwood has a local business owner concerned for the future of his automotive shop. Randy Wong, owner and manager of Goodyear Ultimate Source Automotive at 2075 Willingdon Ave., is worried a mixeduse development planned for the corner of Willingdon Avenue and Lougheed
Highway will push out his business. Wong spoke about the issue at a public hearing on the rezoning for the development at Burnaby’s city hall on Sept. 20. “We’ve been there since 1988,” he said in a phone interview last Thursday, adding the business has nearly 10,000 customers. “It’s a matter of, if you’re getting pushed out, where do you go?” He is also concerned about the effect the situation might have on his employees. The automotive centre has nearly
20 employees at this time, he said, and also provides training opportunities for students in local high school and post-secondary automotive repair programs. He is worried businesses like his will be pushed out of the city, as happened in Vancouver, said Wong, who has owned the business since 1993. Wong has been looking for another space in the area for some time now. “It’s difficult to find something in comparison with what we have,” he said,
adding finding a property that offers longterm leases in the area is a challenge, as well. As he has spent many years building the business there, Wong said he would like to stay in Brentwood. The developer, Chris Dikeakos Architects, did not respond to requests for an interview. Wong was on his way to speak with the city’s director of planning and building, Development Page 4

Why was chemical spill investigation dropped? Local streamkeeper still wants answers about spill that killed fish in Burnaby creek in 2007 Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
A local volunteer streamkeeper is questioning why Environment Canada dropped an investigation into a 2007 chemical spill that killed fish in John Matthews Creek and turned the water yellow. “Our conclusion was that there was no conclusion. There was no reason Environment Canada didn’t follow up,” said Paul Cipywnyk, of the Byrne Creek Streamkeepers. On Oct. 11, 2007, a cleaning man flushed hazardous waste from a defunct electroplating shop down a “Our concludrain, which sion was that leads to the John Matthews Creek, there was no tributary to conclusion.

According to documents from a freedom of information request made by the City of Burnaby, Environment Canada investigators knew where the hazardous waste came from, but the agency did not pursue the case. According to the file, spills from electroplating shops can be quite serious and pollutants can include strong acids and heavy metals, like cadmium, copper, zinc and chromium. The fish killed in the spill likely suffocated after their gills were burned. Under section 36 (3) of the Fisheries Act, it’s illegal to deposit deleterious substances into areas with fish or waterways leading to their habitat. Penalties can include a fine of up to $100,000 and/or

one year in jail, maximum. The documents released don’t indicate why Environment Canada dropped the 2007 case. Environment Canada spokesperson Henry Lau said the enforcement branch looked into the matter and decided charges would not be applied. “As this did not results in a prosecution, we are not at liberty to comment further on the matter out of respect for the privacy of those involved,” he said. The NOW contacted Randy Polozo, owner of the building where the chemicals came from. Polozo was leasing the space to people running an electroplating shop who left
the hazardous chemicals behind. Polozo hired a man to transfer liquids from vats into drums, but he spilled a lot on the floor and washed it down the drain. Polozo was stuck with a clean-up bill of about $80,000. When asked if Environment Canada ever explained to him that the spill was a violation of federal law, Polozo said no. “We didn’t do it on purpose. It was an accident,” he said. There has been a number of spills in Byrne Creek over the years; the 2007 spill only killed about two dozen fish, but another one in March 2010 wiped out the entire creek. In that case, Environment Canada did
not take any action, as they could not locate the source. Cipywnyk said he’s had informal talks with people who work for Environment Canada who usually informally point the finger to lack of budget, or lack of resources or the difficulty in getting prosecutors to accept the cases. “It just gets very frustrating when volunteers put in thousands of hours for free, and then once a year, or once every couple of years, they turn to an agency whose mandate is to protect the environment and have things go nowhere,” he said. An occasional prosecution or fine may force people to pay a little attention, he added.
Surplus at district will cover coming shortfall Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
The Burnaby school district finished the fiscal year in good financial shape. Secretary-treasurer Greg
Frank presented the audited financial statements for the 2011/12 fiscal year at the school board meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 27. “We finished the year with some accumulated surpluses.
Top 5 Things To Do
Here & Now
They are in total $6.1 million,” Frank said. “Part of that, about $3.8 million, was designated to cover an anticipated budget shortfall for the coming year.” That $3.8-million shortfall is because provincial funding is

not keeping up with rising education costs, Frank added. While neighbouring New Westminster is struggling financially and may be forced to run a deficit, Burnaby seems to be in good shape.
“I can’t comment on the other districts. I can say our board has made the decisions required to make sure we stay within our operating budgets,” Frank said. www.twitter.com/ jennifermoreau

Development: auto biz wants to stay put continued from page 1
Basil Luksun, when he spoke with the NOW. Luksun spoke about the development in a phone interview last week. The development would consist of four apartment buildings ranging in height from 39 storeys to 48 storeys, a 13-storey office tower, and retail and commercial space at the ground level, according to a report by Luksun. The site is currently home to an auto dealership with vehicle storage space, a restaurant, an auto repair shop and other generalized light industrial/manufacturing facilities. Businesses leasing property where the development is slated to go in would be governed by their individual lease agreements, Luksun said, something the city isn’t involved in. Now that council has heard the comments from the public hearing, he said, the rezoning for the development will be considered by council and could go to second reading. Mayor Derek Corrigan spoke to the issue this Monday in a phone interview. “We’re looking at other areas we can designate for that kind of growth,” he said of businesses such as Wong’s. Corrigan used the example of Morrey Nissan, which he said wasn’t pushed out of the city but instead was moved closer to the highway. The point is to move businesses that service cars and car owners out of residential neighbourhoods to areas where cars are, such
as along the highway, he explained. “Goodyear and other (similar businesses) can expect that people are going to drive where they are and not take transit,” Corrigan said. The proposed Brentwood development includes plans to include two-zone bus passes for two years with 15 per cent of the residential units. The developer also plans to put in twice the required bicycle parking spaces and participate in a car-sharing program. The development would span 6.65 acres from Lougheed Highway to a lane north of Dawson Street, and from Willingdon to Rosser avenues. If the rezoning goes through, the development would fall under the city’s new ‘s’ zoning designation. The new zoning, introduced last winter, allows for greater density in some multi-family residential districts districts in exchange for building space or money that goes to the city for community and non-profit space. Developers can then build taller towers in the four city centres, helping Burnaby deal with the population increase expected throughout the region, as mentioned in Metro Vancouver’s regional growth strategy, according to the city. Metro Vancouver has predicted that the 2006 population of 2.2 million people in the region will increase to 3.4 million people by 2041.

In two of our stories today, local people and organizations are stepping in and making a big difference in their community in situations that one can rightly wonder where the governments of all levels are: homelessness and the environment. We give kudos to every single person who dedicates some of their free time and their energy, or donates a much-needed chunk of change, to organizations and causes around the country. We don’t want to imagine our world without them doing what they do. But the truth is that, all
too often, relying on volunteers has become the stop-gap that has softened the blow of cuts in education, the arts, social services and more – one needs look no further than any school fundraiser to see that in action. But the cracks will show eventually. Volunteers will and should always play a key role in our society – but there are far too many instances where volunteering is filling the gap where our policy makers, governmental agencies, politicians – and our tax dollars – should be leading the charge.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Job action ‘lessons’ not OK Dear Editor:
As a parent of two students in secondary school, I have been appalled by the “information” being shared with my children regarding the teachers’ current job action. On three separate occasions, and from three separate teachers, my kids have been “taught” what the job action is all about. This information has ranged anywhere from an overview of the planned actions by the teachers and the three stages, as well as when they will be implemented, to the idea that the teachers are “simply trying to make the principals’ lives hell” – yes, that is a direct quote – so that they will, in

turn, advocate to their own superiors that the teachers’ demands should be met, to filling the students’ heads with much propaganda regarding why the teachers should have everything that they are currently asking for. These are being billed as such things as “current events discussions.” One thing that really bothers me is this: As it currently sits, the teachers are only teaching, and since it’s the only thing they are doing anyway, why aren’t they sticking to the facts in their curriculum? Since few other workers in any field, union or non-union, are entitled to many of the benefits/ perks that BCTF is requesting, I have a hard time feeling sympathy. I value the job that teachers do, and have worked

with children at a preschool level (one adult to 16 children ages three to five, so I do understand such things as class size limitations, etc., and would support that if a feasible solution could be found). But to me, this feels much more like teachers attempting to gain sympathy of students, to gain support of parents, and I find this inexcusable. This kind of manoeuvre simply makes it even harder for me to support anything related to this job action. And it has been even tougher now to refrain from saying anything negative or disrespectful about these teachers to my children. (Our family policy is that no matter how we may personally feel about this matter, the teachers do deserve their students’ respect, and therefore we had not been discussing our feelings on the matter, and rarely even the “news” regarding the strike. Unfortunately, we had to do a little more talking about it, including the feeling that this really was an attempt at spreading propaganda.) Please, teachers, leave the negotiations where they belong, and stop bringing the bargaining into your classes. While you are in class, administering your very essential service to our children, please stick to the material, and leave your own opinions on the strike at the door. As it is, my respect is waning … please do not give me cause to reduce it further. Tammy Chabot, Burnaby
Plan before you build
I attended the public hearing on Tuesday, Sept. 20 regarding the redevelopment of the current Station Square site. I was so pleased to see such a large turnout in council (a full house and then some) to discuss a precedent-setting development in our city.
TO START BC Forest Mushroom & Barley Soup
I was also pleased to see so many people speak their praise for planned development in the town centre of Metrotown. I cannot agree more that planned densification near our public transit spaces are a positive move forward. Where I do take issue is the fact that the “planned development” seems to end at the borders of the Station Square development. The report to the city manager cites the development as “human scale” and “pedestrian oriented” – all things I strongly support. What we need to ensure however is that proper planning is made to ensure the same pedestrian oriented environment exists outside the 11 acres of this development. We need to plan how we will accommodate the 1,500-plus new residents in the area, and these plans need to be in place before we approve these types of development. People will not use their bikes if they do not feel safe on the roads – we need a plan now to develop important bike infrastructure in this area. Our city lags behind other RCMP municipalities in officers available per citizen – we need to plan now to increase the number of RCMP officers in our city. This development will mean greater transit ridership – we need to talk now about the expansion of the Metrotown SkyTrain station, already one of the most heavily used stations in the system. Time after time I have seen municipalities put the cart before the horse when it comes to development and planning. Let’s use the Station Square redevelopment as a rallying cry. Let’s ask our city to stop approving large-scale redevelopments without first addressing the infrastructure needed to support them. Let’s make sure we plan for a sustainable future in our city – a human scale community that extends beyond the boundaries of these redevelopment efforts. Matthew Stuart, Burnaby Municipal
RCMP: Negative perceptions continued from page 6
make me (a totally nonmilitary type) proud of the uniform they wear into places like Haiti and Afghanistan to train police forces from the ground up. These are the kinds of men and women who helped build Canada’s positive identity in the global eye. And I’ve run into a few who should be (and a couple now are) in jail. Mostly, however, the RCMP officers I’ve known have been reasonably decent people who have
chosen an important and dangerous career path. They make relatively minor mistakes sometimes, but mostly get through the day doing their jobs as well and as competently as most of the rest of us do ours. Indeed, most never reach the public eye as individuals, but as anonymous units in the RCMP’s ubiquitous presence. And along comes an RCMP cruiser, weaving down the road … and it
turns out the officer driving the car is fiddling with her laptop. And this is after all the rest of us drivers have been denied the privilege of endangering each others’ lives by texting and talking on cellphones or using any electronic devices – like laptops. And suddenly, every last officer on the force is a jerk again. Bob Groeneveld is the editor of the Langley Advance, a sister paper to the Burnaby NOW.

Sit-in at SFU over lockout Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
A group of students occupied the Simon Fraser Student Society board room at SFU’s Burnaby campus on Tuesday, Sept. 27. The stunt was the latest in an ongoing labour dispute between the student society and its unionized support staff, who have been locked out since July. “It really shows students are tired of this lockout, tired of not having our services,” said SFU student Chelsea Mackay. The sit-in started with eight participants, but

Mackay said it grew to 30 at one point.

Some board members have been allowed to keep the spaces open, but Mackay said students have to cross pickets lines to get in. Society president Jeff McCann was not available for immediate comment. Mackay said the students will hold more events if the lockout doesn’t end. email@example.com

Help out the homeless Organizers of event seeking socks, toothbrushes, jackets for people living on the streets Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
The Burnaby Task Force on Homelessness is asking the public to help local citizens sleeping outdoors. “Homelessness steals from the potential of our Burnaby community by creating barriers for those living without a home,” said task force member Wanda Mulholland. “It results in poor health, increased mortality rates and prevents opportunities for all Burnaby citizens to feel included in the community.” Homelessness Action Week is Oct. 10 to 16, and the local task force is planning
a special event on Thursday, Oct. 13, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Southside Community Church, at 7135 Walker Ave. The free event helps the homeless get connected with services. The day includes a pancake breakfast, a blood pressure clinic, a foot-care clinic, haircuts, free clothing, toiletry items, a free barbecue lunch, games and more. But the task force is also looking for donations of travel-size shampoo, conditioner, soap and toothpaste, razors, tampons, sanitary pads, toothbrushes, men’s winter sports socks, men’s underwear, warm winter clothes and one-zone transit tickets. To donate, call 604-522-9669, ext. 317. For more information, visit www. burnabyhomelesstaskforce.org. firstname.lastname@example.org

Deciding on vision correction? Examine your options closely. Choosing to have laser vision correction is a major life decision. You need to take the time to look at your options. Different facilities use different procedures and equipment. Is the clinic you are considering using the latest technology, or is it still performing conventional LASIK? How experienced is the surgical team? What is and isn’t covered by their fees? And what kind of warranty is provided?

Poppy patch in peril Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
A local woman is losing her battle to save a patch of poppies along a SkyTrain trail on Rumble Street, close to Gilley Avenue. In 2010, Olive Balabanov lobbied for TransLinkhired maintenance crews to stop mowing down the poppies, but this past year a tall grass has choked the flowers out. “Many small poppies were growing amongst the grass, unable to compete with the fast growing grass,” Balabanov said. Throughout summer, Balabanov watched the poppies struggle. “The poppies were straggly and far less in number than last year, while the grass thrived and turned out to be a type of wheat maturing into seeds and covering the area with dead stalks,” she said. Balabanov is not sure where the tall grass came from and said it is only growing in the poppy

Julie MacLellan/burnaby now
A life in music: Burnaby native Joseph Elworthy, a St. Thomas More Collegiate grad, concert cellist and former Burnaby Clef Society Concerto Competition winner, has returned to his roots to take on the executive director position at the Vancouver Academy of Music. Park as what they envision as a “unique green cultural and education centre.” Next summer, the Vancouver Academy of Music will run a new educational summer program that will dovetail with Bard’s Young Shakespearean program – and Elworthy and Bard’s artistic director, Christopher Gaze, are meeting for what he calls “bluesky” discussions about what the future may hold. n the shorter term, Elworthy also has his sights set on outreach into seniors’ homes. Students in the academy’s new Chamber Music Institute are forming ensembles that will go into care homes and perform. “These groups will be our dip-
lomats for the school,” Elworthy says. “It’s a really exciting project.” And, of course, Elworthy isn’t forgetting one of the school’s most important missions: to introduce music to the very young. The academy recently started up a Brain Boosters program that combines music, math and logic in a fun learning environment for young children. Elworthy’s own two daughters, aged five and six, are in the program and loving it. His older daughter is also studying piano and viola; his younger daughter is learning violin. “Early exposure is invaluable exposure,” he says. “It’s really a special time.” The academy has also just
launched an Orff on the Go program where an instructor qualified in the Orff method of early music education goes out into preschools in the region that don’t have music programs. Instruction, including instruments and equipment, is offered pro bono for the preschools. “It’s so important that the language of music is something that children are exposed to at an early age,” Elworthy says. “We’re really excited about the prospect of making a meaningful difference for these preschoolers.” nd, of course, the academy works to keep those same students engaged as they grow into their teen years. The school’s

Academy: Full circle for new executive director Yale, it was something he took with him. lworthy knows that not all the academy’s students will follow in his footsteps and make music a career. Although there will always be a percentage who go on to study music at a post-secondary level, most go on to professional success in other fields. “It’s not uncommon to find your dentist who’s an academy alumnus and still plays,” he laughs. For many students, music is an important part of becoming the kind of well-rounded student that universities are looking for. “It’s no longer just about academic standards. They’re looking for a complete person,” he says, noting he’s seen the change in the way students react to the world around them and embrace the idea of community ser-
vice. “There’s much more mindfulness of civic responsibility amount our students.” For Elworthy, that same sense of civic responsibility is driving him in all his efforts in his new post. He’s blessed, he says, with the chance to have experienced the Vancouver Academy of Music from all angles – as a student, as a parent, as a faculty member and now, as executive director. He’s always pleased when parents who don’t know his own background say that he must have gone to the academy as a student. “For me, that’s the ultimate compliment,” he says with a smile. “I hope I carry that attitude and enthusiasm and passion for the institution in everything I do.” For more about the Vancouver Academy of Music, see www.vam.bc.ca.

teen students come from many backgrounds, Elworthy notes, and many have other passions besides music – it’s not uncommon to see them arriving in their football or basketball uniforms. When they arrive, though, they’re united by their love of music. “They can come to the academy and lay off the visages one needs to survive high school. They can come here and be themselves.” These days, Elworthy laughs about his own high school self – as a student at Burnaby’s St. Thomas More Collegiate, he recalls thinking he was “too cool for school.” “I was probably the worst band student,” he says with a laugh. But the Vancouver Academy of Music was a constant presence in his young life, and when he went on to pursue his studies at Juilliard and

The art of collaboration
Art doesn’t have to be a solitary pastime. The Burnaby Art Gallery is opening a new exhibition showcasing examples of collaborative art. One Vision/Multiple Hands is running in conjunction with Chance Operations2: Rhonda Neufeld and Rodney Konopaki, a new exhibition at the gallery. One Vision showcases several examples of collaborative artworks that the City of Burnaby has in its permanent art collection. “As a form of artistic production, collaboration has the ability to manifest itself in many different ways and expand its resonance into different fields of study, including science and the humanities,” a press release notes. “Some artists choose to work together and/or involve other nonartists to create art.” One local example is the Vancouverbased N.E. Thing Co., whose primary collaborators were the husband-and-wife team of Iain and Ingrid Baxter. Their interdisciplinary work was centred on questioning the production and consumption of art by society. Another artist is the Winnipeg-based Aganetha Dyck, who works in partnership with the honey bee. Also included is work by the Guerrilla Girls – an anonymous woman’s-based collective that started in New York City as a political movement questioning the lack of art created by women within major museum collections. “These examples represent a small sampling of the ways in which artists have worked together to create work that addresses the social, political and cultural issues of the day,” the press release says. “Often it is the process by which ideas

about individual ‘authorship’ is abandoned in favour of collective contributions.” One Vision/Multiple Hands is on until Nov. 13. The Burnaby Art Gallery is at 6344 Deer Lake Ave. It’s open Tuesday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is by donation.

Nature’s Canvas at libraries
The beauty of Burnaby’s landscapes is in the spotlight at two Burnaby libraries. The Burnaby Art Gallery is continuing its Art in the Libraries exhibition series by displaying the photographs of Byron Hansen at the Metrotown and McGill library branches. Byron Hansen: Nature’s Canvas is running until Nov. 6 at both libraries. Hansen has been in Burnaby since
2001 and has taken part in many group shows in Burnaby, Vancouver, North Vancouver, Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam. He has also had three solo exhibitions – at the Burnaby Art Gallery, the Glass Onion in Vancouver and the district office in North Vancouver – and worked as artist in residence for the Vancouver parks board at the Strathcona Community Centre. The Metrotown library branch is at
6100 Willingdon Ave., open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. The McGill branch is at 4595 Albert St., open Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m. For more about the exhibition and other events at the gallery, see www. burnabyartgallery.ca. www.twitter.com/juliemaclellan

In celebration of Rivers Day, the Stoney Creek Environment Committee teamed up with the city’s parks department and Burnaby Lougheed Lions volunteers to replant a section of Cottonwood Park in northeast Burnaby. For the past three summers, members of the Stoney Creek Environment Committee, a group of volunteer streamkeepers, have been removing invasive species from the area where the Stoney Creek runs under Government Road. The volunteers spent Sunday, Sept. 25, planting native species. The Stoney Creek Environment Committee also donated $350 to the Burnaby parks department to help cover the cost of the 200 native plants used in the project.

Big screen exposure
Local teens took part in unique film education program
Burnaby teens were among those who had a chance to immerse themselves in the world of filmmaking, thanks to a unique summer program. The TELUS Summer Visions Film Institute for Youth is offered for teens through the efforts of the education department at Pacific Cinémathèque and Dream Big Productions at Templeton Secondary School. The program gives teens a chance to write, shoot, edit and screen a short digital video, supported by professional mentors and filmmakers. Films produced by the teens were recently screened at Pacific Cinémathèque. Among the young filmmakers taking part in the summer program was Joey Lopez, a 17-year-old student from Cariboo Hill Secondary. “I learned more things about acting. The experience was amazing and tons of fun,” he said. “I

I chose to take part in it because I thought it would be a good way to get more experience in filming and to meet new people that are interested in film just as much as I am.” For Jennifer Hao, a 16year-old from Burnaby North Secondary, the program was also a learning experience. “I learned quite a few new skills from the workshops that were offered,
but interestingly enough I actually learned a lot more during the shooting process as I got to operate the camera, control sound, be the director, etc. It’s great because as you’re actually in the filmmaking process, if you have questions, your crew members can help you, and the mentors are definitely very helpful.” Hao says the best thing about the program was the hands-on experience. “I used to be slightly interested in film and very curious as to what it would be like pursuing a
career or side hobby out of it. Now I finally now,” she said. “I feel like I have a whole new love and passion for film, because often you’ll enjoy something more when you know how to do it.” Other Burnaby-based teens taking part in the program included Nathan Grout and Robert Siuda from Byrne Creek Secondary and Anthony Pichler from Moscrop Secondary.

Cruze is worthy winner of prestigious award
Chevy Cruze takes top honours in annual car award winners’ circle David Chao and Bob McHugh NOW contributors
Without a doubt, the best compact car ever produced by Chevrolet is the Cruze, a worthy winner of the 2011 Canadian Car of the Year Award presented by the Automobile Journalist’s Association of Canada (AJAC). Already out and a hit in Europe and Asia, the Cruze is a global project that brought GM’s design and engineering talent from Asia, Europe and North America together. The result is a rigid-chassis vehicle with tight body panel tolerances and a roomy interior with quality touches you don’t expect in a budget-conscious automobile. Top-notch safety features include 10 standard airbags, instead of the usual six. And when it comes to technical refinement, the Cruze offers its new Ecotec 1.4-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. In
addition to impressive performance, this engine can also deliver outstanding fuel economy. I test drove both a Cruze Eco, with a six-speed manual transmission, and a six-speed automatic Cruze TL. The $19,495 base price was the same for both vehicles, and both came with the new Ecotec engine. The entry level Cruze LS comes with an 1.8-litre engine that also provides good fuel economy. While it can match the Ecotec engine’s maximum power output at high engine speeds, it doesn’t possess the Ecotec’s deliciously broad power band and high-torque characteristics at low engine speeds. Clever active aerodynamic features allow the Cruze Eco to slip through air easier on its low rolling-resistance tires. Weight saving initiatives (right down to the size and location of body welds) trim 97 kg (214 lbs.) from its total body mass. A taller sixth overdrive gear allows additional highway fuel savings, yet it’s the Eco’s city driving economy that is most impressive. Cruze Page 28

should feel comfortable in. Adding to driver comfort, the steering wheel tilts and has a telescopic feature, in all models, and it has a beefy, substantial feel when you grip it.
Cruze has more standard safety features than any vehicle in its class. It’s an exceptionally good safety package that includes standard advanced electronic stability control and, as already mentioned, 10 airbags. The extra passive protection comes in the form of knee-airbags for the front passengers and sideimpact airbags for the rear outboard passengers. The head curtain air bags in Cruze also provide rollover
Hydro Flushing Perimeter Drainage Field/Yard Drainage
Other reviews that I’ve read on the Cruze typically knock the horsepower output of the 1.4-litre turbo engine. But after spending time in both the Eco and LT trims with the little engine mated to both manual and automatic transmissions, I have a different opinion. Loved the low-end torque qualities of this engine, and it’s more noticeable when linked to a manual transmission. It allows you to get into top (sixth) gear sooner, and you can cruise along at 100/120 km/hour with the lightest of touches on the gas pedal.

The styling is decidedly conservative, but it’s nicely proportioned and a handsome design that you tend to appreciate more over time. At the front, the Cruze sports the new split-grille corporate look that will also adorn the much-awaited Chevrolet Volt. The Chevy ‘Bow Tie’ logo is proudly and prominently displayed. Bigger than almost all its competitors, the Cruze measures 460 cm (181-inches) bumper-to-bumper and has an extra-long 268 cm (105.7 inches) wheelbase. This gives the car a planted “wheels pushed out at the corners” appearance with short body overhang.

Moss, William Gary August 15, 1944 - September 23, 2011
Passed away peacefully with his family at his side. Gary will be deeply missed and forever remain in the memories of his loving wife Janice; step daughter Heather (John); daughter Cathy (Geoff); sons Jordon, Ryan (Becky), and Kevin (Gaby); mother Norma (Pat); sisters Dorinda, Lynn (Don), and Shelley; sisterin-law Heather (Claude); grandchildren Julia, Jeffrey, Michael, Alyssa, Jayden, and Kristian; as well as many other family members and friends. He was predeceased by his father Ernie. Burnaby has always been home to Gary and his family. After working for others, he felt compelled to become self employed and in 1982 started Marine Roofing. His amazing vision, strong work ethic, and belief in his employees allowed him to build Marine into the leading roofing company that it is today. As an incredibly hard worker, he set high standards not only for himself but also for others. He was a very supportive, generous and encouraging friend to everyone who’s life he touched, and will be missed more than words can express. A celebration of Gary’s life will be held at Ocean View Funeral Home - 4000 Imperial St. Burnaby B.C. on October 2, 2011 at 2:00pm. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to Burnaby General Hospital Foundation.

Art was a life time member of the Vancouver Rose Society. He was an exceptional grower of roses and helped many other exhibitors to win their ribbons and trophies.

Private family gathering, cremation internment at Ocean View Cemetery. Thanks to the George Derby Centre staff and the Palliative Care staff at the Burnaby General Hospital for all their care. Donations to the Alzheimer Society of BC would be gratefully appreciated.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent is on opposition, opportunity, crucial relationships of all kinds. New horizons beckon. If these are foreign, intellectual, cultural, or involve higher learning, publishing, religion or law, pursue them. But if you pursue them merely for your own gain, you’ll hit barriers, especially Sunday and Tuesday. Your sexual, romantic blood is pulsing – add that to this month’s accent on relationships, and the result is obvious. This week, you could meet true love and a viable mate (both in one) – ambition will play a critical role, for good or bad. Joy comes, Thursday/Friday! Taurus April 20-May 20: Maintain a healthy lifestyle, eat and dress sensibly. This is a superb time to sink your teeth into a major chore or project – and to impress the powers that be (Wednesday to Friday). However, be wary on the home front Sunday – and all week (no arguments, especially philosophical ones) and avoid machinery or materials with which you aren’t familiar. Your ideas are a bit off-kilter Tuesday, so don’t promote them – and try not to accept chores this day. Saturday brings friendship joys, and starts a month of marital bliss (sweet responses for singles, though “big love” eludes). Gemini May 21-June 20: Romance, adventure, nature’s beauty, charming kids, success in sports, games and speculation – a possible vacation – you ride a winning streak. You’re also restless, ready to travel. You talk easily, make friends, and can gather information quickly. Sunday pits wanderlust and “easy friends” against “future horizons.” Let the latter win. Don’t invest Monday eve, all Tuesday. An Aquarian “type” might clearly demonstrate an attraction to you Wednesday to Friday. However, though times are good for short-term love, the bigger picture advises waiting until June 2012 onward.
Cancer June 21-July 22: Your domestic situation, kids, garden, farm, food, mortgage, security, home ownership – you have to take some serious, supportive actions in these this month. You might cut someone/ something out of your life, and begin letting (an)other(s) in. Careful Sunday – avoid impulsive money actions, and friends who urge you to spend. Relationships you want to cultivate hit “road bumps” Tuesday, but a good friend might ﬁll Monday. Look after investments, ﬁnances Wednesday to Friday – good luck abounds here! (They’re good “sexy” days too.) Love, children, beauty bring quiet bliss Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks ahead are not supremely important, but your career remains under great auspices, so use the natural restless, communicative, determined and attention-getting inﬂuence that ﬂows over you now to further your career, speak to those in charge, seek information bearing on your ambitions, etc. Sunday raises your romantic antennae, but results are uncertain. A situation might pit your morals or legal awareness against your ambitious urges. Be honest. Tackle (only) routine chores Monday/Tuesday. Wednesday to Friday present many opportunities, if you’re ﬂexible and eager. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Chase money. You can make some Wednesday to Friday by plunging into work, getting a new job, landing clients, or otherwise expending effort. Your intuition will be high about a work-money connection – follow a mild little impulse without questioning it. This is a splendid time to purchase machinery or health supplies, especially cosmetic oils. Earlier, Sunday’s for home, but contains a dangerous “possibility” of being too adventurous in ﬁnancial, sports or “hidden sexual” zones. Romance might enchant you brieﬂy Monday/Tuesday, but it’s not a winner. Saturday’s busy, alive.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Make your mark, grab success! Your energy, charisma, timing and effectiveness soar to a yearly high. Get out, ask favours, take charge, give instructions, tackle things that intimidated you before. Your popularity, while not broad, is intense and fortunate, bringing you just the right people, especially if you’re seeking partnerships. (Though this is better for ﬁnancial than marital partnerships, as sex is high, but ﬁdelity isn’t.) Still, popularity/partnering conﬂict with money/ sexual desires Sunday: be cautious through Tuesday. Romance, creativity soar Wednesday to Friday! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Rest, lie low, contemplate, plan. Be charitable, spiritual. Deal with government agencies, large corporations, wherever red tape rules. Don’t compete: pick safety. Bosses are temperamental, but you can impress them with “pure work.” Sunday’s good for money, but take care this day through Tuesday: words could go where you don’t want them to. A competitor, opportunity or “career adventure” is dangerous (though it could succeed). Home, real estate, security are blessed Wednesday to Friday. Your intuition’s excellent about “letting go” of somebody/thing. Romantic notions Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Popularity, optimism, ﬂirtations, entertainment, social joys and the feeling that a wish has come true: these ﬁll this month. Romance, higher education, international matters, or legal affairs might hit a strange barrier Sunday – it’s as if you’re ﬁghting yourself, yet you win. (Avoid legal hassles through early November.) Money and work combine well Monday, but money obstructions ﬁll Tuesday. Run errands, travel, communicate Wednesday to Friday – friends, siblings are helpful, true blue – romance, deep affections possible. Spend Saturday quietly: rest, enjoy nature.

Oct. 2 - 8, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Be ambitious – bosses, parents and VIPs favour you now (especially this week). Engage in a series of conversations or “proposal meetings.” Be careful Sunday – trying to mix romance and sex, or investments with a gambling mood, might trigger uncontrollable events. Your energy, magnetism and sense of timing improve Monday/Tuesday: be creative Monday, ambitious both days. Your money and earnings outlook improves mightily Wednesday to Friday: your intuition about business, career is tops these days. Saturday’s for friends, happiness. Until mid-November, don’t invest impulsively. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: All intellectual, learning, publishing, international, cultural, legal, religious and similar activities are favoured in October – more this week than later, so don’t delay. (But lie low Monday/ Tuesday.) Relationships are intense – don’t talk so rapidly no one can interject. You could jump all hurdles (especially Sunday or Wednesday to Friday) and ﬁnd yourself in a huge love affair, scheduled for marriage, or in a huge ﬁght! Wisdom is needed, but you have lots of it this month. You toy with relocating, perhaps a short distance. Your real estate outlook is grand, lucky. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Mysteries, secrets, half-sensed forces and truths – the depths of life draw you every October. These depths include sexual urges and large ﬁnances, health diagnoses, intimate commitments and lifestyle changes. These are very favoured now, especially Wednesday to Friday – overcome any weariness or indecision and dive in. Earlier, Sunday pits your duties against a desire to talk, wander or travel. Your hopes rise Monday/Tuesday, but proceed cautiously. Work remains intense, and will continue so to mid-November – but it’s lucrative, so keep at it. Your energy rises Saturday. email@example.com • Reading: 416-686-5014
