Uphill battle Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Salmon in Burnaby’s Byrne Creek appear to be making a comeback after years of chemical spills. Streamkeeper Paul Cipywnyk said volunteers have counted 36 spawning salmon – that’s three times more than 2010, the year when two chemical spills wiped out the creek’s fish. “It’s really nice to see fish back,” Cipywnyk said. “Last year, the numbers were so low. We had new volunteers come out, and it was kind of depressing because we had nothing to show them.” Spawning season typically runs from mid-October to the end of November, but this season wrapped up in late December, Cipywnyk said. Every year, volunteers patrol the creek and count each fish they find. The best year was Salmon Page 4

Assessments increase five to 15 per cent Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Burnaby homeowners will likely see an increase to their property values when they receive their assessment notices this week. Homes in the North Fraser area – including Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore and Belcarra – can expect increases ranging from five to 15 per cent, according to a press release from B.C. Assessment. “Areas of Burnaby such as Buckingham Heights and Smith/Garden Village as

well as pockets in Coquitlam such as Maillardville and Burquitlam will see increases in the 15 to 25 per cent range,” deputy assessor Zina Weston said in the release. Overall, residential property values in Burnaby increased by 9.68 per cent from last year, going from $57.786 billion in 2011 to $63.382 billion in 2012. Property values in neighbouring New Westminster increased overall by 5.81 per cent, and in Coquitlam by 6.86 per cent.

their home and neighbouring properties. B.C. Assessment mailed out assessment notices with more information on Dec. 30, and homeowners should be receiving those this week. B.C. Assessment shows the assessed value of most of B.C.’s 1.9 million residential properties as of July 1 of the past year, but the actual value of the home depends on the current market. Assessment appraisers consider size, age, quality, condition and location of individual properties when assessing the value. For those wishing to appeal their assess-

ment, the deadline is Jan. 31. B.C. Assessment suggests homeowners call or visit the office to resolve any issues with assessments. The provincial government is again offering homeowner grants to help residents with property taxes. The grants offer a maximum reduction of $570 for Burnaby homes, with $275 more available to those 65 or over, those who are permanently disabled and veterans of certain wars, according to a press release from B.C.’s Ministry of Finance.

2004 with 91 spawners. But since then, numbers have been declining, to a low of 10 in 2009. Last year, there were only 13. Cipywnyk is not sure what affects the spawners’ numbers. “It’s kind of a mystery. We don’t really know why the numbers fluctuate, but we are really happy this year,” he said. “Some of it in the past may have been caused by some of those spills.” Byrne Creek has suffered four spills since 2006. In 2010, two spills wiped out the creek’s fish population, which streamkeepers try to bolster every year by releasing chum fry and coho smolts. This spawning season, volunteers also spotted 14 “redds” or salmon nests. “If we stay pollutionfree, we should have fry popping up in the creek, which will be excellent,” Cipywnyk said. Elmer Rudolph, of the Sapperton Fish and Game Club, also noted more coho and chum returning via the Brunette River. This year and last, roughly 100 salmon returned, while a typical year will see about half that. According to Rudolph,

Smartphone theft on the rise Alfie Lau

staff reporter

It’s one of the fastest-growing crimes in the city, and the Burnaby RCMP are hoping that people will be extra careful with their smartphones. According to a Burnaby RCMP press release, there has been an increase in personal robberies where 40 per cent of victims are being targeted for their smartphones. In comparison, since 2010, financial institutions and business-related robberies have dropped. Cpl. Brenda Gresiuk offers some crime prevention tips for people to protect themselves: ◆ Be cautious when using online shopping sites such as Craigslist and Kijiji. Criminals use these sites to

post smartphones such as iPhones and Blackberrys for sale, and then lure unsuspecting victims to isolated areas to commit the robbery. ◆ Don’t lend your phone to anyone. Criminals may pose as victims in need of making an emergency phone call and then run off with the phone. Offer to make the emergency call on their behalf. ◆ Be aware of your surroundings. Victims using their phones in public places are being targeted by criminals. Criminals then follow them away from the crowd before committing the offence. ◆ You should record the phone’s serial number, the international mobile equipment identity number of your phone and the SIM card serial number. Keep this important information

The three Burnaby residents were killed instantly. According to the Revelstoke RCMP, next of kin notifications have been completed, and at the request of the family, the names of the three will not be released. The driver of the Langley-based commercial truck is from the Lower Mainland and was not injured in the crash. The RCMP are requesting that anyone who may have witnessed this collision but has not spoken with police to contact the Trans Canada East traffic services unit in Revelstoke at 250-837-5255. – Alfie Lau

Eight-year-old injured in accident An eight-year-old girl was severely injured after being hit by a truck on the Island Highway West in Bowser, north of Qualicum Bay. The incident happened around 1:48 p.m. on Boxing Day on the highway near Fisheries Road. The family had stopped on the bridge over the Qualicum River when the little girl suddenly slipped off the sidewalk and hit her head on the side mirror of a passing truck.

in a safe place at home. ◆ Download free apps such as “Find my iPhone,” and never leave your phone unattended. Do not store personal information such as passwords and banking information on your phone. If you are confronted or threatened for your phone, do not challenge the criminal and immediately report the incident to the police. You should report a stolen or lost phone to the police and your cellphone service provider immediately. If the theft just occurred, call 911. Lost or stolen phones should be reported to the non-emergency main Burnaby detachment number at 604294-7922, or you may file a report in person at any of the city’s community policing offices.

Family killed in crash

A 36-year-old Burnaby woman and her four- and six-year-old daughters died in a Dec. 21 car crash on the Trans-Canada Highway just west of Rogers Pass. The three were coming from Calgary back to their Burnaby home. According to a press release from the Revelstoke RCMP, the accident occurred just after 5 p.m. and involved the Burnaby family’s 2003 Suzuki SUV and a commercial tractor trailer unit. Preliminary indications from the RCMP are that the Suzuki was westbound on a straight stretch of road when it crossed into the eastbound lane and was hit by the eastbound commercial tractor trailer unit.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Common courtesy is lost Dear Editor:

I just finished reading Darcy Olson’s letter (Riots have root causes, Letters to the editor Dec. 30) attempting to explain the root causes of the “Stanley Cup riot” this past spring. Like others who have tried to explain the cause, Olson has missed the point. By blaming advertising by corporations that are bent on extracting every last dime from our evershrinking wallets and by blaming individual police officers for somehow not giving society enough confidence in law enforcement, Olson and others have let the rioters/looters off the hook while simultaneously letting our society off the hook. We always

like to blame someone or something else instead of looking at ourselves when something goes terribly wrong. The riot and looting that occurred after a sporting event is the symptom of something more complicated than advertising and policing. I was raised by my parents with the value that we live in a society governed by laws and that each individual in our society is an equal recipient of protections and societal courtesies. Courtesy is the key word that has been lost somewhere along the way when the rioters and others like them were and are being raised in this society. For some reason, there are enough people like the rioters that are recipients of the courtesies of their fellow members of society who diligently obey the

law and contribute to the orderliness that creates civil society. Yet these rioters do not live their life in a way that reciprocates those benefits. I am not talking about criminals but seemingly “normal” people (that will never have a criminal record) who have a nice clean, shiny car (inside and out) and will toss their trash out of their window (while driving) to maintain their clean car. These same people will throw their disposable coffee cups, fast food packaging, or cigarette butts into my yard or onto the sidewalk or road as they walk back to their clean homes because they feel that they can litter while somebody else can clean up after them. These same people can’t be bothered with recycling so they just throw all of their newspapers and bottles in the garbage can while others diligently recycle to contribute to the overall good. These people are recipients of societal courtesies yet do not contribute to the civilized society that they continue to benefit from. Take this localized selfish mentality of our society to a global level with the petulant behavior that is our government’s inaction on environmental issues and you can see the parallels of selfishness across various levels. How did our society become this way? What would these people have done and what will they do if an earthquake hits

Vancouver the way it hit Japan a few months before the riot? Will I have to board up my windows to protect my family for two weeks (and hope that nobody burns my house down) until authorities are able to bring order and provide aid to the area? In Japan, people waited patiently in a dignified manner for help and not one case of looting was reported. What is different about Japan (which incidentally has been in a recession for two decades) that its people did not loot and riot in a selfish, crazed, “everyone for themselves” mentality? Many have speculated on the causes of the riot and have blamed everything from alcohol, the police, politicians, educators, and all the way to the Vancouver Canucks. We need to look at ourselves. Somewhere along the line, the rioters began to believe that it is okay to personally cheat and to destroy the orderliness and safety of our society and to just throw the responsibility of cleaning up and paying for the consequences onto others. The explanation of the cause of the riot begins with the parents who had one to 18 years to shape the attitudes of the looting rioters. Lets’s look at the parents of the rioters and compare them to the parents of those that courageously tried to protect victims from violence and property from vandalism. Let’s look at ourselves and our society that I fear might fail if a natural disaster were to strike. Harmel Guram, Burnaby

“Justice Delayed: A Report of the Provincial Court of British Columbia Concerning Judicial Resources” dated Sept. 14, 2010 indicated that the Provincial Court of British Columbia is the only provincial court in Canada with fewer judges today than in 2005. Seventeen fewer to be precise. Despite having that report for more than 14 months, the government has failed to rectify the shortfall. As of Oct. 31, 2011 there is less than one full-time equivalent judge sitting in B.C. than when the report was provided to government in September 2010. So what does this mean for criminal justice in this province? The answer is a chronic backlog of cases in which

it takes much longer than is constitutionally acceptable for accused persons to get to trial. As a result, numerous cases are being judicially stayed (dropped by judges) because accused persons are not having their trials within a reasonable time as required by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Fredoms. In the last year, examples where charges were stayed include serious allegations like cocaine trafficking and numerous impaired driving cases. The provincial government’s support of the Safe Streets and Communities Act is also surprising given that the increase to the number of offences subjected to a mandatory minimum sentence will also increase the number of cases that proceed to a

trial as opposed to being dealt with by a guilty plea. Let’s say someone you love gets charged with an offence subject to a mandatory sentence of one year in jail. That one year in jail applies whether they plead guilty or takes their case to trial. In other words, your loved one has no incentive to plead guilty and might as well go to trial and see if the Crown can prove its case. Creating incentives to take cases to trial further increases the already chronic backlog of cases in our underfunded system. So if the premier supports the “get tough on crime” approach being advanced by the feds, she better put our money where her mouth is. Anthony Robinson is a criminal lawyer in Vancouver.

Dear Editor:

Réjean Beaulieu, Burnaby

Thank you for featuring this heart-warming story (A family portrait, Burnaby NOW, Dec. 21). The two Burnaby moms, Lindsey and Jan, certainly exemplify the holiday spirit in their compassion to reach halfway around the world to adopt their daughters. More than 500 same-sex families in B.C. can be grateful to them for their courage in setting precedent as the first same-sex couple to win joint custody of their adopted children. And all families can empathize with their love for their children, and their message to “light a candle in the darkness.” Lise Kreps, Burnaby

Thanks to city

Dear Editor:

Future predictions Dear Editor:

Seeing as I seem not to have got my two cents worth on the matter in question (though not from lack of trying) I think that it is time for a little commentary from those not quite so enamoured with the whole matter as are the Burnaby Teachers’ Association and, seemingly the staff and those who devise the editorial policy of this paper. I am referring, of course to the 5.45. policy. Reporter Jennifer Moreau claims (rightly, I’m sure) that “Even with the high-profile coverage, (The Burnaby NOW ran a front page story on it on Feb. 26) some parents seemed surprised that the policy even existed.” Personally, I am surprised that she thought that every parent in Burnaby runs to read the NOW or its competitor on every matter, being as they have a busy life, usually with both parents working, while trying to keep their children on the straight and narrow, as it were. Those opposed to the policy formed a group called Parents’ Voice, whom Jennifer claims: “Had an underlying fear in their discourse that their children would somehow be co-opted by radical gay activists.” That would, of course, be Jennifer’s perception of them.

My personal perception is that there was a very well-founded fear of the whole “bullying situation” being used by a certain clique in society and the school board, to promote this particular lifestyle. On the matter of the possibility of “sin” that so upsets trustee Ron Burton, I would think that he would be aware that this particular lifestyle is considered sinful in all the great religions of the world, and that in fact, all sex outside of marriage is considered wrong by, not just Catholics (Roman) but Orthodox Christians, most Protestants and Jews, be they reformed or orthodox, all Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus, and, well, you name it. Now sin is a part of humanity and there are few who may avoid it, but it is not unworthy of consideration by those who are free-love advocates who seem to inhabit, mostly the left of the political spectrum. I have also found it somewhat confusing why this contingent in society thinks they get to decide what shall be the definition of such buzz words as “heterosexism” (not found in Webster’s Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary, at least as published in 1981.) And then there is “homophobia” which etymologically should come from either the Greek, meaning “fear of sameness” or from the Roman, “fear of man or men”! It is listed in the same edition previously noted as “irrational fear of homosexuality or homosexuals” and dated from

1969. There is no listing for “heterophobia,” so it would seem that these are not fear inducing. Why the clamour? Oh, and just in parting, you noted that Christy Clark declined to become involved at the behest of Parents’ Voice re: the school district’s push for this legislation. It is a well known fact that she has a child attending a Catholic school at present and it is generally assumed that she will not be in place after the next election to give any assistance thereafter. Larry Bennett, Burnaby

Do some research Dear Editor:

It never ceases to amaze me that people can be so poorly informed about such things as smart meters and renewable energy development. After all, we live in a world with easy, almost instantaneous, access to accurate information. So there really is no excuse for being misinformed. Take, for example, the claims made in a recent email received by our group (B.C. Citizens for Green Energy) from someone who only identified themselves as “Cyber Grannie.” Now it may well be that “Cyber Grannie” is an actual granny but it is equally possible that “Cyber Grannie” is a 25-year old male attempting to yank our chain. Nevertheless, in “her” email, “Cyber Grannie” claimed that the smart meters being installed by

B.C. Hydro are “manufactured in China” and are therefore “not green” because the manufacturing plant in China would be powered by burning dirty coal. Unfortunately for “Cyber Grannie,” her information about the origin of the smart meters is 100 per cent wrong. The Itron smart meters being installed in B.C. by B.C. Hydro are manufactured at Itron’s smart meter manufacturing facility in Oconee, South Carolina, not in China. Interestingly, “Cyber Grannie’s” misinformed claim about smart meters is reminiscent of the “make-an-outrageousclaim-and-hope-it-sticks-to-thewall” tactics we often see coming from COPE 378 union organizers who, among other things, are opposed to the implementation of smart meters because a couple of hundred COPE 378 union members currently employed as meter readers are being re-assigned or seeing their positions eliminated through normal attrition, saving taxpayers millions of dollars in salary costs along the way. So, regardless of who “Cyber Grannie” really is, the claims she makes about the smart meters being installed in B.C. are completely wrong. And sadly, there really is no excuse for it, because if “Cyber Grannie” has the computer savvy to create a screen name and set up a Hotmail account, then she should also have the ability to check basic facts online.

Teachers’ dispute back at the bargaining table Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

B.C. teachers and their employer are back at the bargaining table after the holidays, but the government’s net-zero mandate seems to be the sticking point preventing any progress. “The reality is, if you have a net zero mandate, you’re bargaining with yourself,” said Burnaby Teachers’ Association president Richard Storch. “You’re not really getting anything. You’re just trading off things.” The provincial government implemented a “net-zero” wage increase for all negotiations with public sector employees between 2010 and 2012. The mandate means there’s no new money being offered to teachers. If they want a pay increase, they need to take something

What does the teachers’ strike mean? What does the teachers’ job action cover? Burnaby Teachers’ Association president Richard Storch explains: ◆ Teachers are not writing report cards or having parent-teacher interviews. ◆ Teachers are not attending meetings called by administration. ◆ Teachers do not need to accept written communication from administrators or send communication to administration.

acterized the case as an exception to the net zero mandate and argued it puts pressure on the provincial government to revise its mandate with teachers. “Nurses, anesthesiologists, police, firefighters, and now CUPE have all broken the net-zero mandate,” said BCTF president Susan Lambert in a Dec. 16 media statement. However, Richard Overgaard, a national communication representative for CUPE, said the deal falls within the netzero mandate because technically there was no increase in wages. “But we were successful in getting $7.5 million for educational assistants,” he said. “Yes, it’s net-zero, but it also means a lot of our members are going to get paid more.” But, Joy said the BCTF wants the net zero mandate off the table.

People are interpreting what it looks like differently,” Storch said.

Teachers: Not hopeful


Garbage tipping fees increasing

continued from page 9

“So far, the BCTF refuses to go into any conversation because of the net-zero mandate,” Joy said. The teachers’ union has $2-billion in compensation increases (for leaves, retirements and bonuses) on the table, she added. In an interview with the NOW, Lambert said the netzero mandate is the only blocking point. “What government is doing is coming to the table with nothing,” she said. “How can you negotiate with nothing? Collective bargaining is a matter of reaching a compromise.” Lambert said the BCTF would be open to a staged, implementation plan to raise teachers’ salaries, in a way that’s more affordable to government. Both sides, however, hope the conflict will end. “It’s stultifying, it’s very, very trying. It’s frustrating on both sides,” Lambert said. “Coming into the new year, the morale kind of lowers,” Joy said. “Everybody wants it to be over.” Storch is hoping bargaining will start soon. “This scenario has been going on for a while, so unfortunately, I’m not that hopeful,” he said.

Burnaby and other Lower Mainland municipalities are paying more this year to dump garbage at waste transfer and disposal stations. The fee increase is part of Metro Vancouver’s strategy to get residents to separate their trash, putting yard trimming and compost in the appropriate bins, according to a press release from the regional government. Taxpayers are not expected to pay more, however, as the increase is expected to be offset by a lower quantity of garbage, the

On stage: The cast of the Arts Club Theatre’s production of Don Quixote. The show is now on tour and will be onstage at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts Jan. 12 and 13. Emily Cooper/ Courtesy arts club theatre company

Masks, magic and mayhem for Don Quixote Ever popular story at Shadbolt this month for two performances The famous quest of Don Quixote is being reimagined with masks, magic and mayhem in an Arts Club Theatre production. The Arts Club, in collaboration with Axis Theatre Company, is bringing Don Quixote to the stage at Shadbolt Centre for the Arts on Jan. 12 and 13. The play, by Colin Heath and Peter Anderson, explores the comical and philosophical world of Don Quixote, a retired country gentleman who has become obsessed with ancient books of knighthood and chivalry. Inspired by his readings, he sets out on a quest to defend the helpless and destroy the wicked, alongside his faithful squire, Sancho Panza. Anderson stars as Don Quixote, with Michel Perron as Sancho Panza. The play is adapted from Miguel de Cervantes’ classic novel, published in two volumes in 1605 and 1615, which emerged as the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age. This envisioning of the novel

includes masks by Melody Anderson and a literary-themed set by David Roberts that takes the audience from Don Quixote’s candlelit library to a field of hostile windmills to the castle of a duke. Anderson says the tragic-comic hero has enduring appeal. “Throwing himself totally into the realm of his imagination, our hero dons the mask of a medieval knight like the ones in his beloved books,” he said. “But the paradox of masks is that even as they hide our everyday appearance, they simultaneously reveal a greater truth.” The production also stars Sasa Brown, Marco Soriano, Raphael Kepinski, Beatrice Zeilinger and Allan Zinyk. The Burnaby production is part of a Lower Mainland tour that also includes performances in North Vancouver, Maple Ridge, Surrey, Mission, Coquitlam and West Vancouver. “I’m thrilled to be bringing this inventive adaptation of the classic to communities across the Lower Mainland,” said Bill Millerd, artistic managing director of the Arts Club.

efore we scramble to fill our new calendars, get into the groove of new schedules, and perhaps consider a New Year’s resolution or two, let’s seize this time of transition to reflect on the year that has passed and take stock of our lives. A year is a great expanse of time though when it’s over, it may seem to have passed more quickly than the one before. This is a near universal experience among busy adults. The older we are, the more accelerated seems the passage of each succeeding year. But when you consider the 12 months of the year – the events in your community: elections, riots, Grey Cup finals, parades; the milestones of your social life: births, deaths,

Missed the Boxing Day sales? No problem – a pair of local parent-focused businesses are helping to keep the post-holiday savings going into January. And they’re hoping to raise some funds for a good cause at the same time. Mother of a Deal, which was recently profiled by the NOW’s sister paper, The Record, is teaming up with another local business, True Cuddles, to host the “Shop-a-thon for Moms” on Jan. 8. Both businesses are based in New Westminster. The event is scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Firefighters’ Club Banquet and Conference Centre in Burnaby (next to Metrotown). Popular online retailers will be selling overstock, last-season, samples and clearance items at the sale. Firefighters from the 2012 ‘Flame’ calendar will be on hand to collect donations for the Burn Fund. “While everyone loves a great deal, this event also gives us a great opportunity to include a charitable element to support burn victims and the B.C. Professional Fire Fighters Association,” says Heather McGrath, co-organizer of the Shop-a-thon for Moms and owner of, an online deal site. “We’d love to be able to help the association check a few items off their wish list with the money raised through the requested $2 door entry donation,” said Danielle Connelly, co-organizer of the Shop-a-thon and owner of Mother of a Deal. As well, those interested in attending can pre-register and be entered to win a give-away worth more than $250. For information, see www.shopathonformoms. com. ChristinaMyersA

“I feel like I have my life back. I am able to be more active … and life is much much more enjoyable.” Lyle B., a LaserHealth Solutions patient ®

*aser Therapy has proven to be a fast and effective solution for a wide variety of soft tissue injuries, including whiplash, tendonitis, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff tears, ankle and knee sprains, sciatica, tennis and golfer’s elbow.

Laser Therapy uses a cold laser that gets absorbed by soft tissue.

aria was taking pain medication for pain in her left elbow. The soreness kept her up at nights and prevented her from driving or even holding a cup of tea. But after only )ve *aser Therapy treatments, she stopped taking all medication. By her tenth session, she was back to normal. Maria’s story is not unusual for *aser!ealth% &olutions, which provides *aser Therapy treatment in Burnaby, &urrey, and #ancouver. *aser Therapy has proven to be a fast and effective solution to a wide variety of soft tissue injuries, including whiplash, tendonitis, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff injuries, ankle and knee sprains, sciatica, and tennis and golfer’s elbow.

This form of treatment doesn’t mask the pain of an injury. Rather, it treats the injury directly by activating biochemical energy and accelerating the healing process. *aser Therapy works directly at the cellular level to help resolve in'ammation quickly. The effectiveness of *aser Therapy varies from patient to patient, but after just a few weeks of treatment most patients report they are pain-free and have returned to their regular activities. Ben K. injured his back in 1993 while helping a friend move a large desk down a 'ight of stairs. !e sought treatment from his family doctor and other specialists, but nothing helped eradicate the pain. "hen he )rst heard about *aser Therapy he was skeptical, he said: “The notion of lasers blasting away my pain seemed unreal.”

But after a few treatments of *aser Therapy, the pain had disappeared. Ben admits he’s not sure of how *aser Therapy works, “I just know it worked for me!” &o, how does *aser Therapy work( &kin, muscles, cartilage, ligaments and tendons absorb the red and infrared light. This stimulates cells, increasing their metabolism and regenerating healthy tissue. *aser Therapy provides cells with more energy, resulting in the resolution of in'ammation, reduced scar tissue formation, increased lymphatic drainage and improved vascular circulation. This is a non-invasive treatment, as there are no needles used in this treatment. As well, because this is $old *aser technology, there is no cutting or burning. The treatment is backed up by scienti)c research.

Over 2,500 research studies that have been conducted on *aser Therapy. World-renowned cellular biologist Dr. Mary Dyson has extensively published papers related to *aser Therapy research. &he’s found that cells can increase their repair rate six to eight times when exposed to speci)c wavelengths of light. Maria and Ben’s stories are among the over 500 patient testimonials listed on the company’s website, The site also includes video demonstrations of patients receiving treatment and a more comprehensive explanation of *aser Therapy. To )nd out if *aser Therapy is right for you, call the Burnaby clinic at 604-293-2273 to book a consultation and assessment.

BMW’s new X1 a great ‘in-between’ option Luxury offering will be a benchmark for smaller sports vehicles David Chao

NOW contributor

Rejecting the more commonplace Sports Utility Vehicle term, BMW has always referred to the X3 and X5 as Sports Activity Vehicles. It’s an interesting distinction, reinforcing an image of BMW owners as energetic people with on-the-go lifestyles. However, while the X3 and X5 are perfectly good vehicles, they really don’t stand out from the SUV competition well enough to justify their own category. For the SAV acronym to stick we’re going to need something much closer in spirit to your wonderful sports sedans; descriptions like nimble, quick, fast and agile come to my mind. In other words, something like the new X1. If there’s ever going to be a ‘true’ Sports Activity Vehicle segment, the newest BMW is the benchmark. Slotting in between the 3 Series sedan (on which it’s based) and the bigger X3, the X1 combines the sedan’s size and handling with the SUV’s practicality and personality. Unlike the 3 Series Touring wagon, the X1 comes across as a fun-loving

and fun-to-drive car, rather than a family mover. And unlike the larger X3, the X1 feels much more like a sports sedan than an SUV – it’s a vehicle that wants to be driven. As a result, Canadians have been quick to get onboard with the X1, which has sold well thus far. The X1’s strong start is very important, because the competition is heating up. Technically, Infiniti was here first with the EX35, and Lexus is busily prepping the upcoming CX300h, a compact hybrid crossover. However, the biggest threat will likely come from Audi with the similarly themed Q3. Audi’s entry might not drive as well as the X1 though, because the BMW X1’s performance is seriously impressive already and Audi’s model is not yet confirmed for the Canadian market. Looking at the bigger picture, there’s a noticeable shift that echoes the movement from large sedans to mid-size and compact sedans roughly two decades ago. After years of larger and larger SUVs, consumers are once again realizing that we can get by with vehicles that are smaller and more fuel efficient – even better if those same vehicles are a blast to drive.


Shorter than the X3 in both

Contributed/burnaby now

Top of the class: The BMW X1 offers a smaller size than an SUV while still tapping into the style and characteristics of sports vehicles.

height and length, the X1’s design is closely patterned after the larger SUV, but with a longer hood that’s more in line with the 3 Series sedan. From some angles, however, the proportions are slightly off – that’s particularly the case from the side, where the hood just seems a bit too long for the rest of the body. The front-end styling is pleasing to the eye, thanks to a bold grille and the unusual placement of the fog lamps midway up the

fascia to create what BMW calls a ‘three-eyed’ look. The strong design continues around to the excellent rear hatch and vibrant LED tail lights.


A turbocharged 2.0L inlinefour is the only initial engine choice in Canada, producing 241hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. It’s a superb engine, with exceptional low-end torque that peaks at 1,250rpm, and comes with a slick,

eight-speed automatic transmission.


The front seat area provides plenty of space, while it can be a bit tight at the back. Overall, the interior feels reasonably spacious and the optional panorama sunroof brings plenty of sun into the cabin. Storage space is understandably limited up front.

BCIT grad Patrick Switzer was the king of the hill in downhill skateboarding in 2011. After a second-place finish on the World Cup circuit last year, the 23year-old local longboarder topped the points ladder in 2011, garnering 2,216.85 points from his five best races, beating runner-up Douglas Silva of Brazil by almost 200 points. Switzer made International Gravity Sports Association history in August, becoming the first skateboarder to ever win three consecutive open downhill World Cup races following a first-place finish at the Padova Grand Prix in Italy. In September, Switzer won an unprecedented fourth World Cup sanctioned race in a row, taking top spot at the Canada Cup in Calgary. Switzer went on to win six consecutive IGSA sanctioned races in 2011 with a championship run in the Prince Edward County 1.2kilometre race in Ontario later in the month. “Not only are we doing something exciting, fun and amazing, we’re getting those vibes out to the

The Simon Fraser University club hockey team will host the second leg of the 1st annual University Hockey Classic on Saturday. SFU will take on crosstown rival University of B.C. in a home-andhome series, beginning today (Friday) at 7 p.m. at the Thunderbird Sports Centre. On Saturday, the two teams faceoff in Burnaby at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre. Puck drops at 7 p.m. “It’s hockey, it should be pumped up this way,” said SFU head coach Mark Coletta at Thursday’s press conference. SFU’s first-ever meeting earlier in the season against NCAA Division I ranked Air Force proved the team is competitive, said Clan captain Chris Hoe. “This is another chance to prove we can compete at the CIS level,” Hoe said.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy and charisma fly high Sunday/Monday, so impress people, and enjoy yourself! But be prepared for some surprises, even irksome people. Chase money Tuesday/ Wednesday – all’s smooth, productive, though you’ll need long-range vision/wisdom Wednesday night. Communications and travel succeed Thursday/Friday – either can lead to love, affection, understanding with others, resolution of conflicts – even financial and career success (Thursday). You will begin a love, domestic, property, or social project. A new friend will arrive. These might not be immediately apparent. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Lie low, rest and contemplate Sunday/Monday. As this is a work month, you’ll probably face some overdue chores. Well, tackle them. Your energy, mood and effectiveness improve strongly Monday night through Wednesday, and you accomplish easily. Chase money during a very lucky Thursday/Friday. You might begin a new employment or job project. You’re also enamoured of someone, but your fascination might only last a month. Be cautious in driving and speaking Saturday night. All week, focus on work efforts, health, nutrition, diet. Be helpful. Your career and status are headed upward! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Love, romance, creative and speculative urges, talents, teaching children, pleasure and beauty fill this week and the next. February will begin one of the major relationship phases of your life (lasting to 2025). If you’re single, this would be a good time to contemplate who, what type of person, you want for the decades ahead. Sunday/Monday accent your wishes, optimism, buoyant friendships and popularity. Love could reach mushy heights – or one splits, one forms. Retreat midweek. Rest, contemplate. All’s well. Your energy and charisma soar upward Thursday/Friday – take a chance!

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Ambition still rules. Impress your boss, start important career or business projects, work hard, seek promotion – or, in the other sense, promote yourself in the community, advertise, raise your profile, attend prestigious events. Some surprises await you Sunday/Monday, especially in home, real estate and other foundational, security zones. (But in crisis there is always opportunity – ditto here.) Romance, affection and beauty face you Monday night to Wednesday. Thursday and Friday are packed with luck in work (and indirectly, career) – accept, perform, seek employment. Taurus April 20-May 20: Casual relationships (including siblings) are unpredictable Sunday/ Monday. Take care with speech and driving. Family, property, security and retirement concerns flow in a steady, mildly productive current Monday night through Wednesday – a good time to iron out rough edges or settle prior uncertainties. This entire week brings mellow feelings toward others – a perfect background for the strong and lucky romantic vibes that fill Thursday/Friday. If single, you could meet the one you’ll love. If you’re attached, children, creative, pleasure and speculative ventures win and please! Gemini May 21-June 20: Mysteries, nuances, sexual liaisons, investments, dealings in secret, research, detective work, power plays, collusion, debt and similar depths are lucky in the short term (e.g., Thursday/Friday) but face an ultimate barrier if you dive into them before Jan. 20. If you make a commitment or a lifestyle change now, it will succeed splendidly for awhile, but ultimately wrestle you into disappointment. So take care, be “light” – protect rather than expand. Romantic feelings are safe, sex not. Protect your health. Money’s unruly early week. Property, home, gardening reward late week.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Some relationships or projects end now, some begin. Concentrate on your security, family, real estate, soul, stomach, nutrition. Unhappy Librans often have digestive problems. Not that you’re unhappy – but present times do push you to make significant alterations in these same areas: security, home, diet, etc. A tug-o-war might arise between outside ambitions and home circumstances Sunday/Monday: tread cautiously. Your hopes, popularity and general joy rise midweek. Retreat to rest, contemplate and plan Thursday/Friday – contact government or institutions for lucky results. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: This week brings communications, travel, paperwork and the details of daily life. You might run into legal, moral or travel dilemmas Sunday/Monday. You’ll be able to convince a mate (about money, future plans, socializing, even love) but not a co-worker, Sunday. Be careful with machinery. Follow your ambitions Monday night through Wednesday – quiet, productive days. Your optimism soars Thursday/Friday, as friends call, strangers smile, and a wish could come true. Almost everything’s favoured: love, friendships, even work. Don’t start a realty or reno project. Retreat Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Keep your focus on earnings, buying/selling, possessions, and rote learning. This is a good time to memorize anything, such as a foreign language or school facts. Avoid big finances, debt, investments – and sexual forays – Sunday/Monday. A lot of potential disappointment lurks. (One good thing, Sunday morning: work and pay.) Your outlook brightens Monday night through Wednesday as intellectually compatible friends/lovers – and understanding – waft your way. Far travel, education are favoured. Your career and worldly status are splendidly lucky Thursday/Friday: charge ahead!

Jan. 8 - 14, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your energy, effectiveness, timing and luck fly high, so start important projects, seek attention of important people, ask favours, and charge forth generally. However, be cautious Sunday/Monday, when others oppose your desires and intentions. You’d win any struggles, probably, but why make enemies? Life’s mysteries and depths rise to the surface midweek.You can make progress with finances, research and, personally, by being intimate. Legal, intellectual, learning, far travel, cultural, love and similarly “elevated” zones hit a streak of super luck Thursday/Friday – go! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Continue to lie low, rest, contemplate and plan. Be charitable. Your energy and magnetism are at a yearly low, but they’ll bounce back in two weeks. Meanwhile, this is a great time to shore up your foundations, especially Thursday/ Friday. Those two splendid days urge you to chase any/all foundational things: buy a home, invest, improve your health or seek a diagnosis, undergo therapy, change your lifestyle, or share intimacy. Earlier, machines, chores and health need caution Sunday/Monday. Monday night through Wednesday brings calm relationships, quiet opportunities. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: A wish, particularly about a relationship, love, an opportunity, relocation, litigation, negotiation, or dealing with the public is very likely to come true this week, particularly Thursday/Friday. Two qualifications: 1) it might not be the same wish you anticipate; and 2) these two days could also lead to a fight instead of joy, if you act too independently or competitively. Then again, a fight could dissolve into respect, laughter, even love! The remaining week is nothing great. Be cautious in romance and pleasure Sunday/Monday. Tackle chores midweek. DON’T invest Saturday.
