‘THESE GUYS HAVE BEEN A GODSEND AT THIS TIME, LET ME TELL YOU’

City program helped abuse survivors find jobs Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Being out of work is stressful enough without sexual abuse flashbacks, posttraumatic stress disorder or an abusive partner. That is why the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Bridging Employment Program for Women was established three years ago – to help female abuse survivors rebuild their lives. But the program comes to an end today,

as the provincial government is merging employment programs throughout the province into its new Employment Program for B.C. Lisa Sanders, who recently moved to Burnaby from Calgary, was one of the Bridging Employment Program’s final 17 clients. “These guys have the skills to help us women who are going through these traumatic and post-traumatic situations, way better than anyone could’ve at a regular

employment program,” she said. “Which is why we’re sad that we don’t get to do our real employment part here with these girls.” Sanders was sexually abused as a child and witnessed violence in her biological father’s house, she said, and was later emotionally and physically abused by her children’s father. She has experienced more recent losses, as well – her mother passed away six weeks ago, and she was served with divorce

ELLIOTT HARTY’S TRAGIC DEATH HELPED SAVE A STRANGER’S LIFE

Mother joins ‘transplant trot’ to help cause S

imone Harty was sleeping in the early morning of June 13, 2007, when police came to her North Burnaby home asking questions about her son. Is this where Elliott Harty lives? Does he own a motorcycle? Where is he? Simone thought her 17-year-old boy was asleep in bed, when police asked to see his motorcycle. “I was horrified when I saw the bike wasn’t there,” she says. “It was complete disbelief, that they must have had the wrong person.” ON MY BEAT Her son, Elliott, Jennifer Moreau who had been out with friends and drinking earlier that night, had returned home and quietly slipped out again around midnight on his new motorbike. No one saw the accident, but shortly after Elliott left, a motorist called police to report that a lamppost was blocking Barnet Highway. When police responded, they found Elliott in a ditch. He was rushed to Royal Columbian in critical condition. Simone, a single mom, was at his bedside – praying, talking to her only child and watching his vital signs – but hours or surgery could not repair the boy’s broken body. “It wasn’t till the next day that the neurologist came to speak to us,” she says in a soft, quivering voice. “He was saying to us that there was no brain activity and that really there was no more they could do.” Then came a conversation about whether Simone would like to “make the gift of life” and donate her child’s organs. Simone had never spoken with Elliott about organ donation, but she thought it’s what he would have wanted. Burnaby North Secondary students huddled together in the hospital’s hallways for a chance to say goodbye to the tall, gangly fun-loving teen, who played piano and loved cooking curry. Elliott’s kidney and liver were saved, as were some islet cells from his pancreas, which can help people with diabetes. Five years later, Simone is still raw with grief, but she smiles and remembers her son fondly, as she flips through an album of mementos. There are several newspaper clippings from the accident,

photos of a Elliott, and an anonymous, hand-written letter on yellow paper from one of the recipients of Elliott’s organ donation. The writer is thankful after suffering through 10 years of kidney disease. “I will cherish and take care of my new kidney and treat it like my baby and part of my body,” the letter says. “What’s hard for me is I don’t know much about this person,” Simone says. In Canada, there’s a wall of anonymity between families of organ donors and recipients, and Simone knows nothing of the person who now carries Elliott’s kidney. “But I do know it’s a hard letter to write,” she says. “I understand the complications of receiving a gift like that.” Simone has done a lot in the wake of losing her child. She’s shared her story publicly and encouraged people to become organ donors, and she’s joined a dragon boating team of transplant recipients and paddled alongside Eva Markvoort, the young, vibrant New Westminster woman who passed away after a double lung transplant. She also attends a support group for parents who have lost their children and has made many new friends since Elliott’s death. On Sunday, April 1, Simone will be one of more than 150 participants in a “transplant trot” at Burnaby Lake Park benefitting the Canadian Transplant Association. Organizers behind the run are raising awareness about organ donation in hopes more people will register. The trek starts at 10 a.m., and participants can run or walk five kilometres or eight. Registration is $20, and transplant recipients register for free. Simone will be there for Elliott. “I’m just a person who will run. I will run with my son’s button in his honour,” she says. Simone had spoken to her son about drugs, teen pregnancy and jail, but never organ donation. “I think it’s important to have those conversations, but I’m sure I made the choice he would have made,” she says. “It’s one of those important conversation parents need to have with their children.” Simone hopes people register as organ donors and have these conversations – not beside deathbeds, but as part of everyday life. Simone is also hopeful others will receive that bittersweet “gift of life.” “I didn’t realize the degree in which a gift like this can change someone’s life,

BURNABY BOY CELEBRATES 30 YEARS OF SUCCESS In 2012, Bill Longman will celebrate 30 years of running the company he founded, Euro-Rite Cabinets. It’s a considerable achievement for a man who started making cabinets in his garage, and delivered some of his first orders in a car he bought for $20. Bill and his siblings were raised in Burnaby by a single mom on welfare. From her, early on, Bill learned the value of money, hard work, strong ethics, and respect for elders. It wasn’t always easy but those values have served him well and helped push him through many setbacks. In high school Bill was given the smallest paper route available and within two years, he had the largest. Out of school he delivered bread for Venice Bakery and grew his territory. Later while working for the Vancouver Fire Department he sold cabinets door to door to help pay off his mortgage. Longman has always had a passion for sales and Euro-Rite’s success is a tribute of his determination to meet his goals. Today Euro-Rite is well past the garage days. The company has

grown from a one-man venture to a multi-million dollar business, with 120 employees and 110,000 square feet in operations space. Bill has long since retired from the fire department and is enjoying Euro-Rite’s success but has never forgotten his roots. He now works to help others succeed by giving back to the community. Euro-Rite Cabinets supports over a dozen charities annually. Bill’s generosity doesn’t end with charitable donations. In 2007, he had the company valued and formed the “Employee Trust Fund”. The trust fund allows all Euro-Rite Cabinet employees, both current and retired to share in any increased value to the company. The success of the company is shared by all who contribute to it, so Euro-Rite employees strive for success, every day.

Missing senior’s body found

The Burnaby RCMP announced Thursday afternoon that they have located the body of Yu Lan Rou Lin, the Burnaby senior who has been missing since March 15. Her body was found by a passerby in a wooded area near the 6200 block of Ninth Avenue in South Burnaby. “At this time, the police are not treating

this as a suspicious death,” RCMP Cpl. Rick Skolrood said in a press release. “The family is requesting privacy during this difficult time.” Chief Supt. Dave Critchley offered condolences to the family, and the RCMP thanked the public and the volunteers who helped in the search for the senior. – Alfie Lau

School workers approve deal What was once tentative is now a done deal. Burnaby’s unionized school support workers have finalized an agreement with the B.C. Public School Employees Association – and they did it under the government’s net-zero mandate. The workers are mostly education assistants, custodians and clerical workers and are represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees, local 379.

Spokesperson Bill Pegler said the new deal offers “recognition and respect” for education assistants’ unpaid work. “The assistants, because of the way hours are structured, they end up doing a lot of unpaid work. We were able to get a dedicated pot of money provincewide that addressed that, and it was a major, major win,” he said. – Jennifer Moreau

marketing and promotion. But she is facing many additional challenges, from the physical – an injury to her right hand, when she is right-hand dominant – to educational, as she is 46 and doesn’t having a marketing degree as many younger applicants do. “These guys have been helping me present myself based on things like my experience and the old-school way of doing things,” she said of the program. But she will not be able to finish the 26-week program – she’ll be going on to another program as of next month. “It is going to be really, really tough,” Sanders said. “It is going to be a really hard transition for me.” Many of the clients need the stability of the program at this point in their lives, she added, saying it’s been “completely essential.” “I don’t think any of us would’ve been able to be walking and talking and smiling,” she said. Diana Delgado has been the Bridging Employment program manager since it began in January 2009. She will continue working with S.U.C.C.E.S.S. but is mourning the loss of the program, which she doubts can be replicated in a merged format. The province has merged provincially and federally funded programs within its new Employment Program of B.C., which is replacing the B.C. Employment Program on April 2. The new program is a “one-stop shop” concept, according to Delgado. “The people who got the contracts are super experienced, and I know they are

trying their very best,” Delgado said. “But the Bridging program was truly an amazing program.” She is concerned the new programs will not be intense or involved enough to address the needs of the clients her program served. “The legacy of this program is the fact that many women were able to realize that there’s life after, and they don’t deserve to tolerate any type of abuse,” she said. “The fact that they learn to break the cycle, especially the ones that have children – are able to say the violence stops here, and I can give a better life to my children, that is amazing.” Even those clients that could not complete the program were helped, she added. “Even if they don’t achieve the employment outcome, or they have to go back to school, they realize they can heal and there is life beyond whatever relationship they left,” Delgado explained. The Bridging Employment Program had two arms, one for aboriginal women, she said and received funding through the provincial Ministry of Social Development. The Building Employment counsellors worked with more than 100 clients during the three years it ran, according to Delgado. Now that the program is ending, the counsellors will help the final 17 clients transition to new programs during the month of April. “Our job is not done until they are all connected at the other end,” Delgado said. The Ministry of Social Development was not able to set up an interview or provide a statement regarding the program changes before deadline.

help was offered. Merlo’s long list of alleged grievances reveal a “brotherhood” of male officers who have a fascination with dildos and a critical dislike of pregnant women. It may not be surprising given what is largely a paramilitary system, but it is astounding that supervisors who covered up the harassment – or, basically ignored it – never thought that what they were doing was not only dishonourable, but also a violation of basic human rights.

The new head of the RCMP, commissioner Bob Paulson, pledged in November 2011 that sexual harassment allegations “do not represent the force that I joined and this condition cannot stand.” We don’t know what force he joined, but the one that Sandy Merlo and other female officers joined is one that needs a real shake-up. If Paulson was sincere, he needs to support the call for a class action lawsuit so that the women can have their day in court – and so can the RCMP.

Financial info should be online EDITOR’S LETTER Pat Tracy

I

t is one of the ironies of the news business. The public usually doesn’t have an opinion on information or its importance to them until such information is made public and they have a chance to read it. This may seem obvious to many readers. After all, most readers understand that reporters collect and present information in news stories. Readers seldom phone or email me asking how they can file Freedom of Information requests, or how to pry information out of city hall. They assume, quite understandably, that reporters are supposed to be doing that for them. But apparently, there are still politicians who believe that reporters are just digging up information for the heck of it. Consider Burnaby’s decision not to put election campaign expense forms online. Burnaby is, perhaps, the only city in the Lower Mainland that has not, or is in the process of, putting the disclosures online. Coun. Sav Dhaliwal told our

reporter that he hasn’t heard much complaint or feedback from the public asking for the election disclosures to be posted online. No, probably not. People rightly expect the information will be made public via the media. It is our job. Dhaliwal also said, “Other than newspaper reporters, I wonder if anybody looks at them. Staff hasn’t brought it up to us as a major issue.” I’m not sure if Dhaliwal is deliberately missing the point or if he is part of a concerted effort to make it as difficult as possible for the media to access the information. It’s hard to tell. Surely he understands that fewer people will potentially “look” at them if the documents are not online. Surely he also understands that staff – given that they are employees – are apt not to fight for easier access to documents that reveal what their political bosses may not want to broadcast. (Oh, and not to suggest that there’s any connection, but the city’s CUPE union local – the one that many staff are members of – donated $20,000 to the ruling party’s election campaign.) Dhaliwal also said, “I think there are a few other things ahead of this that I believe are more of a priority for taxpayers.” Is he suggesting that the staff time to put election campaign

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Is cleanliness guaranteed?

Dear Editor

It is good news indeed that an all-out cleanup has stopped the contagion of C. difficile at Burnaby Hospital. It is not good news that I have to be concerned that the housekeeping staff might be responsible for my demise should I need to visit the facility. When I attend such a facility, I usually need help, expert and sometimes urgent help. My usual good health is somehow in need of repair. Until now, I thought the basic cleanliness, the floors, the walls, the linen, the furnishings was being taken monitored and looked after. My concerns always were focused on the excellent care my family and I have always experienced at Burnaby Hospital.

Now, it seems my refuge and source of wellbeing has itself become a danger. How can it be that the medical staff must blow a whistle to express concern about mortalities? There surely must be a system to assess the cleaning in the building. Will the sudden short burst of cleaning be continued or renewed? Have steps been taken to avoid returning to a time of peril?

Youth for tan-free futures The Ministry of Health has just announced that the B.C. government will be banning indoor tanning for youth under the age of 18. We thank the B.C. government for taking this step towards protecting the health of B.C.’s youth. According to the World Health Organization, any use of indoor tanning equipment before the age of 35 has been found to increase the risk of melanoma by 75 per cent. Melanoma is one of the most common and deadly forms of skin cancer for young people, even though it is mostly preventable. We are two of the Tan Free Grad Leaders for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Tan Free Grad Challenge at Burnaby North Secondary. At present, students can still access indoor tanning beds, which is why we want to raise awareness about this health issue and encourage students at our school to own their own skin tone for graduation. Our goals as advocates of this campaign is to have all of our fellow Grade 12 students pledging to be tan-free for prom and to educate our peers about the dangers of UV radiation. For more information about Tanning is Out, join the Tanning is Out Facebook page,www.facebook.com/TanningIsOut or visit www.cancergameplan.ca.

City hall: Transparency needed expense disclosures online once every couple of years is going to derail some important business at city hall? It boggles the mind. And just in case readers wonder why only Coun. Dhaliwal spoke to the question – well, apparently, most of council was on a junket to sister city Mesa, Arizona this past week. Freedom of information is essential to a democracy. And freedom of information doesn’t just mean that the information is available – if you have the resources and time to spend copying such information by hand in city hall – it also means that there is a level of transparency and accessibility that does not deter information seekers.

Dear Editor:

regarding the teachers’ strike. She says that the government “netzero” policy shows us they think public education is a business, for the reason that only in a business, money in must equal or be greater then money out. Really? I am not a math expert, but it seems to me that, when it comes to finance, regardless if it’s in reference to a business, a household, government etc., if money in is less than money out, it will equal debt. In the government’s case, more debt equals more taxes, more taxes equals more people on or below poverty level, more people below poverty level equals less circulation of money, less circulation of money equals higher unemployment, and I could go on, but I’ll go straight to the bottom line, and that spells “disaster.” The writer says that it really comes down to respecting teachers and the work they do for the community and the province. Yes, and the same goes for police, firefighters, nurses etc. We all do a job, we all contribute to our community in some form or other. All equally important. We all get paid for the profession we choose and execute. Our valuable freedom of choice gives us the opportunity to choose whatever profession we want and the right to change it at any time we so desire.

institutions that purport to model accountability or transparency while making it as difficult as possible for folks to simply access information, are surely missing the point. Patrick Smith is an SFU political science professor and current director of the Institute of Governance Studies. He said: “Burnaby should know better. They talk about how they were voted best managed municipality (by Maclean’s Magazine), but I don’t know how this can be considered a best practice.” I agree. Making the public (or reporters) go to city hall to copy documents is, simply, backward. In the olden days one had to actually go to city hall in person to pay

taxes. Nowadays one can pay online. That’s as it should be. The failure of Burnaby’s one-party government to simply do what makes sense unfortunately fuels its political foes’ claims that it is trying to obstruct easy access to politically sensitive information. Why, one wonders, would the Burnaby Citizens’ Association, want to hand opponents ammunition? After all, it’s not as if there’s some grand principle behind keeping such documents offline. At least nobody has told us there is. Could it just be a display of stubbornness in the face of criticism? I hope not. Pat Tracy is the editor of the Burnaby NOW and its sister paper, The Record.

Burnaby designer offers up vegan clothes Student’s work featured in Kwantlen fashion show Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Following in the footsteps of vegan fashion designers like Stella McCartney, Burnaby resident Nam Hee Kim is debuting her 100 per cent animal cruelty free clothing line VEO at the annual Kwantlen fashion show next Tuesday. “If you’re not willing to eat the animals, then how can you possibly think of wearing them?� Kim said in a press release regarding her first VEO collection, Raw Beauty. Kim, who emigrated from Korea to Canada with her family when she was 10, is completing her bachelor’s degree in fashion design and technology at Kwantlen Polytechnic University this year. The 24-year-old, who has lived in Burnaby for three years, went to the University of the Fraser Valley after high

school and transferred her fashion design diploma credits to Kwantlen’s degree program. Kim used eco-friendly and organic fabrics, as well as recycled materials, to create the three outfits in her women’s collection. For the red jacket in the collection she used heavy 100 per cent cotton moleskin, and plant-based materials for all the other clothing, she said. “It took me awhile to find material that doesn’t contain anything that even has animal glue,� she said, “even just a little bit of animal product – that was the main issue that I had when I was looking.� Kim is currently applying for jobs but also hopes to travel to New York before settling in Vancouver, she said. The Show, Kwantlen’s annual fashion show, takes place April 3 at the River Rock Show Theatre in Richmond. For more information on Kim’s fashions, go to namheekim.com.

Most real estate listings rely heavily on one or two main highlights: a great location, updated renovations or proximity to schools. In the case of a recently listed penthouse condo in the heart of Burnaby, there are simply too many highlights to name just a few – and that’s reflected in its record-breaking listing price and its description as “the most luxurious, spacious and expensive penthouse ever offered in Burnaby.” The penthouse at the Savoy Carleton, south of Kingsway near Edmonds SkyTrain station, was listed in mid-February for $2 million. “I looked back on the public MLS system, and the closest (condo listing) I could find was $1.3 million,” said real estate agent Ian Watt. But, he said, it’s certainly worth every penny. “The size, for one thing, is phenomenal,” he said. The unit – which has views extending from Mount Baker to the Gulf Islands – has 2,877 square feet inside over two floors, with another 1,100 over two patios (not to mention the four parking spaces and additional ground-floor storage), which gives it far more space than most single-family homes, notes Watt. “It’s really a one-of-a-kind property,” he said. That’s not just lip service: the penthouse was originally built as two separate but adjacent units in 1992 but four years ago was overhauled and renovated to become one larger two-floor home. “They combined the two (penthouses) into one – it was a major job, but it turned out beautifully,” he said. The unit has three bedrooms and four bathrooms, including a massive master suite with a gas fireplace, marble and

granite bathroom ensuite with a Jacuzzi tub and a private deck. There’s also a sauna, a built-in sound system throughout the house and custom lighting. The 200-square-foot kitchen has custom cherry wood cabinets and millwork, high-end Sub Zero and Dacor appliances and a built-in wine fridge. Watt typically only works with Vancouver properties but said his reputation for working with high-end penthouses – and his previous experience working with the owners – led him to represent this property. And after just a few days, he had already had a few bites. “We just showed it – people from this area looking to downsize from a bigger house,” he said. He’s confident the price is a reasonable one given its size, location and amenities and comparable properties – he recently sold the neighbouring unit, at half the size, for about $800,000. “It’s a different world – it’s beautiful up there. We were up there … when we had all that fog rolling in, and it was amazing – like being in an airplane above the clouds,” he said. “You can look in one direction all the way to Mount Baker and in the other direction to the Gulf Islands, parts of downtown. It’s stunning.” www.twitter.com/ChristinaMyersA

The wormy wonder of red wigglers

T

here’s a mound of worms in Bintoro Gunadi’s hand and a grin on his face: here is a man who knows what he loves to do and is doing it. The worms, to the uninitiated, look rather like those you’d find in the garden – in other words, squirming and wriggling. But these are special worms, known to the scientific community as Eisenia andrei and Eisenia fetida, or more commonly, red wigglers. And Gunadi hopes that someday these little creatures will be ON MY BEAT found in homes, Christina Myers schools, businesses and anywhere else they can do their magic work of composting waste.

From afar

Gunadi is originally from the island of Java, in Indonesia, and came to Canada three years ago, landing in Halifax and then spending some time working in the U.S. He, his wife and his son have settled in Burnaby, and for the last few years, he’s been working with greenhouses south of the river. He’s an expert in soil biology and, specifically, these worms, having spent his life’s work in the field – but, as far as Gunadi is concerned, his academic history comes second to the wigglers themselves. “They are the focus,” he says. He’s recently launched Burnaby Red Wigglers, an effort to get more worms into the hands of more people – and, hopefully, into large-scale sites like universities, businesses and governmental bodies. The mission is simple: to contribute to the development of contemporary models of urban and suburban sustainability. If that’s a mouthful, here’s the translation: finding a way to deal with waste that is simple, cost-effective and most importantly, good to the earth and the people who live on it. That may sound like a tall order, but the “wigglers” are impressive enough to make it happen.

Wiggling around

“If you have one pound of worms and one pound of waste, it will become vermicompost in a couple of days,” Gunadi says. In fact, the worms can actually convert slightly more than 100 per cent of their own body weight in a day, eating everything from kitchen waste to wet paper, and changing it into a rich compost for the garden. Vermiculture-vermicomposting (the former refers to producing the worms, the latter to the compost itself) can be done on a small scale in a home or on a large scale at a major facility. “Both are safe for the environment and the community,” he says. The worms produce an antimicrobial protein that will eliminate human pathogens and suppress plant diseases. And there’s no chance that the worms will get into the local biology – they’ll simply die

Get the worms

Gunadi has started supplying worms to individuals through his website at www.burnabyredwigglers.jimdo.com. “I stay in touch to help them with it, maybe there’s a problem with the conditions – too wet or something – so I want to make sure they do well and teach them about it,” he said. He says B.C.’s mild climate is ideal for vermiculture/vermicomposting, and he hopes to see it developed throughout the province. “They’re great, they make (the) best compost. They take the waste, and then we don’t have to throw it out,” he said. With his enthusiasm for the worms, and his expertise, Gunadi may just be the man to bring the wigglers into the mainstream. www.twitter.com/ChristinaMyersA

There’s a new market in town, one that aims to help immigrant and refugee women develop some business acumen while earning a living. Burnaby resident Lubna Abdelrahman started the community market, which runs every last Saturday of each month in the gym at Edmonds Community School. “Most of my clients who book the tables are newcomers,” she said. “We try to empower them.” Abdelrahman is hoping to give women who are new to Canada a hand up through the market. People can rent tables for $25 to $35, but new vendors get a break on the fee. As part of the vendor experience, Abdelrahman offers women basic business training, including how to handle cash flows, lines of credit and taxes. Saturday, March 31 is the second market session, and Abdelrahman said there will be all kinds of items for sale: African dresses, Islamic clothes, jewelry, traditional ethnic food, perfumes and handcrafted items. “The idea for us is not the money,” she said. “It’s how they can exist in the market.

very parent knows: when it comes to babies, there’s nothing you go through faster than diapers. Growing interest in making ‘green’ parenting choices has sparked a rebirth of the old tried-andtrue cloth diaper in recent years – but with modern fabrics, easy-to-use features and a rainbow of colours, today’s cloth diapers are not just functional, they’re also fun. Burnaby’s Sarah Brade is helping moms find their perfect cloth-diaper fit through her online store, Baby Footprints, which ships across Canada. The NOW caught up with her this week to learn more: Question: Can you tell

Answer: My name is Sarah Brade, my husband Kelcey and I have lived in South Burnaby for five years. We have two kids – Milo, 2, and Rooney, six months. Q: What inspired you to start this business? A: A couple of years before I had my son I came across cloth diapers on the internet (I really have no idea what I was googling that led me to them!), and just the appeal of a product that was healthier for babies, less expensive than disposables and better for the environment was compelling enough for me to register a business name, buy the domain, and tell anyone that would listen what a great idea I thought they were. It took me until I was pregnant with my son to get serious about really putting my idea into action. The name “Baby

Footprint” comes from the idea of keeping our carbon footprint small. Q: What’s the range of services and products you offer?

A: Right now we stock the leading cloth diaper brands: BumGenius, Bummis, GroVia, Flip, FuzziBunz, Mother-Ease, Thirsties and Tot Bots, as well as all the cloth diaper accessories you need to cloth diaper effortlessly like wetbags to store them, cloth-diaper friendly laundry soap, cloth wipes, flushable bio-liners for easy clean up. We also have a few breast feeding accessories and cloth training pants, too. Q: For someone who has considered cloth-diapering, how would you encourage them to check it out? A: If you are pregnant and considering cloth diapering I highly recommend our newborn cloth

diaper rental kit – it’s $20 per week for minimum six weeks (maximum 10) and it gives you the opportunity to try out our most popular cloth diapers to see which system you like best, as well as use the newborn sizes (6 to 12 pounds) with little monetary output.

If you have been using disposables and are becoming frustrated by the amount of money (and trash bags) going out the door for diapers, I would encourage you to start with maybe six pocket diapers or all-in-ones and use during days at home. A trial pro-

gram is also in the works. Q: How about cost?

A: The cost savings is huge, conservatively about $1,000 using cloth over disposables. Here is some really simple math: The average

Dear families!

Diaper: Hoping for ‘brick and mortar’ store continued from page 19

baby toilet trains at two-and-ahalf. Average number of diapers per day is seven (remember they are going through upwards of 12 during the first three months!), so that is 6,500 give or take in their lifetime. Cheap or sale priced disposables cost about $0.25 each – that is $1,600. A cloth diaper costs between $5 and $30. Most of the popular pocket and all-inone diapers cost between $20 to $25. You could buy two dozen cloth diapers (enough for two to three days use) plus the necessary accessories for about $600. Voila … $1,000 (saved)!

If you plan to have more kids, the savings continue to add up since you already made the initial investment. Q: Is this your full-time job (on top of parenting!)? Where would you like to see the business in five years? A: I also work in human resources, although currently on my mat leave with my six-monthold daughter. I love my job, I love my business, and I love my family – life is full, to say the least. I am blessed to have a husband that works weekends so he has two to three weekdays off, as

well as a mom that helps out too. I will also hopefully be taking on a WAHM (work-at-home mom) partner in the coming months. In five years, I would love to have a “bricks and mortar” store in South Burnaby. Q: What has been the number 1 best thing about cloth diapering for you? A: No late night trips to the store when I am out of diapers, and cases of diaper rashes that I can count on one hand. Check out Sarah’s site at www. thebabyfootprint.com for more info.

AD 2012 Creativity and children – it’s a great mix – That’s one of the reasons our annual Design an Ad special supplement continues to be popular in Burnaby.

Maddie, Kitchener Elementary School, Grade 4

The Burnaby NOW, local businesses and organizations, and the Burnaby School District, team up and ask city students to design newspaper ads for the special section.

BURNABY TEACHERS’ ASSOCIATION #115 - 3993 HENNING DRIVE, BURNABY Ph: (604) 294-8141 • Fax: (604) 294-9846 Email: bta@bctf.ca

I would like to thank all of the students, teachers and participating advertisers who continue to make this annual project a real success! I hope you enjoy looking at the students’ ads and the photos of them working as much as we enjoy helping to make this section happen. Lara Graham Director of Sales and Marketing

Participating Schools

The students come up with their own advertising designs and ideas and create an advertisement that can run in the Burnaby NOW. Every year, the students produce insightful, creative, thoughtful – and often humourous – advertisements that highlight the strengths of their subjects and often carry compelling messages. The businesses and groups get to choose which student’s advertisement they want to run in the section and our photographer visits the students while they are working on their ads. The ads and the students’ photos are put together by a designer at the Burnaby NOW and another Design an Ad section is complete. The ads are also on display at Lougheed Town Centre from March 26 – April 8.

Congratulations from Burnaby City Council to this year’s Design an Ad program participants. Your creativity helps make Burnaby a great place to live, work, learn and play! To foster the creativity of all Burnaby students, throughout the year the City of Burnaby partners with Burnaby schools, teachers, students and the Board of Education to offer dozens of innovative programs.

The Fraser Health Authority coordinates community health prevention programs. Immigrant Support Services ensure that basic needs of families new to Burnaby are

The Burnaby Firefighters provide nourishment through a healthy snack initiative in several of our schools. BC Hydro and Fortis BC support us in our efforts to go green. The Burnaby Now features success stories of student achievements. And multiple businesses provide secondary students with work experience, apprenticeship and industry training opportunities that contribute to their post secondary and career success. This is just a fraction of the community support that enables us to provide the best educational experience possible for all of our students. Thank you for helping us prepare and support an inclusive, caring community of learners for the challenges of a changing tomorrow. Larry Hayes Chair, Burnaby Board of Education

{ THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO DOMESTIC BLISS IN BURNABY }

Spruce up the yard after winter Restoring your property after a long winter One of the best things about the dawn of spring and the return of warmer weather is the chance to get out of the house and get some fresh air. For homeowners, this is the perfect opportunity to assess any damage the previous months did to yards and develop a plan to restore properties. ■ Don’t jump the gun. The first warm day of spring might seem

like a great time to get out in the yard and get your hands dirty. But it’s best to wait until the grass has completely dried out before getting to work. Raking on wet grass increases the risk of tearing out grass, which can cause bald spots and the growth of weeds down the road. In addition, stepping on the grass while the ground is still wet can compact the soil, which can slow drainage and block the lawn’s roots from breathing.

■ Patience should prevail with regard to mowing the lawn as well. A lawn’s roots will not start to grow until the average everyday temperature routinely reaches 4.5 C, so mowing too early is both unnecessary and potentially harmful to the lawn. When the temperatures regularly reach 10 C, then homeowners will likely start to see their lawns growing.

■ Remove debris that’s piled up. Debris has a tendency to infest a yard over the course of the winter months. Fallen branches, stones and even trash can accumulate in a yard, putting those who spend time in the yard at risk of injury once the warm weather returns. For instance, bits of twigs and pebbles that are blown across the yard during a windy winter can be embedded in the yard, making the yard less of a haven and more of a hazard. Once the grass is dry enough to walk on, walk around the property and remove any debris that’s piled up over the last few months. ■ Remove thatch. Once the grass has dried, you can begin to remove thatch that’s built up over the winter. Thatch is potentially very harmful to soil, blocking sunlight, air and

moisture the soil needs to ensure a lawn looks lush and healthy. Thatch removal does not necessarily need to be an annual task. If thatch buildup is insignificant, then it can be done every other year. Just use a de-thatching rake to make the job much easier. ■ Aerate, particularly if the yard is a heavy traffic area once the warm weather arrives. If your yard transforms into a child’s wonderland upon the arrival of spring and summer, you might want to revive the soil by aerating. When the yard gets heavy usage, it’s easy for soil to become compacted, which makes it hard for air and water to reach the lawn’s roots. That can eventually make for a less-than-appealing lawn. So if your yard is the place to be come the warmer months, aerate in the spring to loosen the soil and make it easier for the lawn to withstand the months ahead. No matter how harsh the winter months might have been, spring is a great time for homeowners to restore the property around their homes.

Mowing the lawn too early in the spring is both unnecessary and potentially harmful to the lawn. Photo contributed

Time to take the home buying LEAP

But the decision to buy a home isn’t just about whether or not you can afford the purchase price. It also means taking on responsibility for all the other costs (both anticipated and unexpected) that come with homeownership. How can you know if you’re financially ready to become a homeowner? Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) offers the following tips to help you figure out your current financial situation and the maximum home price that you should consider: Before you begin shopping for a home, it’s important to know how much you can afford to spend on homeownership. In addition to the mortgage payments and interest, other significant expenses will include heating costs, property taxes, condo fees, and regular home maintenance and repairs. To answer this question, start

Next, figure out how much debt you’re carrying. If you decide to buy a home, this information will be one of the first things mortgage lenders will ask to see. Once you’ve calculated your household and debt expenses, there are two “affordability rules” that can help you figure out how much you can realistically pay for a home. The first affordability rule is that your total monthly housing costs shouldn’t be more than 32 per cent of your gross monthly income. Gross monthly income is the amount of income everyone in your household brings home, before taxes and other deductions. Housing costs include mortgage principal and interest payments, as well as property taxes and heating expenses (or PITH for short). The second affordability rule is that your entire monthly debt load shouldn’t be more than 40 per cent of your gross monthly income. Your monthly debt load includes

To help you take a realistic look at your current monthly expenses without leaving anything out, use CMHC’s current household budget worksheet or household budget calculator, both of which are available free of charge on the CMHC website.

your housing costs (PITH) plus all your other debt payments, such as car loans or leases, student loans, credit card payments, lines of credit payments and so on. The maximum home price that you can realistically afford depends on a number of factors, in particular your household gross monthly income, your down payment and the mortgage interest rate. For many people, the hardest part of buying a home – especially their first

No, zip ties aren’t a proper car part

CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: I’ve been a fan for years. I had a great 2000 Ford Crown Victoria, which I always had serviced at a local muffler/ repair shop. Last year, I gave the car to my daughter in

Michigan. When she took it to her own mechanic for a tuneup, he discovered that all eight fuel-injector clips had broken off and the fuel injectors were held in position by plastic zip ties! My repair-shop owner is telling me that there is a problem with these clips, that they tend to break off, and that it is standard to use zip ties to hold them in place. He never mentioned this during the nine years he serviced my car. My daughter’s mechanic says my guy is “blowing smoke,” and he has

never seen anything like this before. Who do I believe? I am very leery about returning to my old guy now with my newer 2005 Mercury. What do you fellows think? Would you go back to him? – Dorothy TOM: No. He’s endangering your life, Dorothy. And he’s trying to cover up his bad judgment with a song and dance. RAY: We used to try that, but very quickly, we ran through the entire 20th Century Songbook, and

our feet were killing us. TOM: Those clips do break sometimes. We’ve seen it happen when you remove the fuel injectors to make a repair. But if you break one, or two, or eight, you buy new ones. They’re sold separately by dealers, and they’re cheap. Very cheap. RAY: So the only reason to use zip ties would be laziness. They’re not an acceptable substitute. TOM: They’re plastic, so they’re not designed to take the high underhood temperatures in the middle

of the engine compartment, which can be several hundred degrees. And over time, the zip ties will get brittle and fail. If one breaks, a fuel injector can come flying out, spraying gasoline at high pressure all over the engine. RAY: And that leads to what? Fire. So, to summarize: bad idea! TOM: We use zip ties all the time to group bunches of wires together, or hold a wire out of the way if it’s at the periphery of the engine compartment

– and if the zip tie’s failure would not result in anything dangerous happening. But we’d never use one to hold an injector in place. RAY: To say that it’s “standard to use zip ties” to secure fuel injectors is nuts. It’s standard to use zip ties to close kitchen garbage bags, Dorothy. And if your guy doesn’t know that, it’s time for a new mechanic. Got a question about cars? Email Click and Clack by visiting the Car Talk website at www.cartalk.com.

Change your driving habits and save yourself money kilometres per litre. Warming up the vehicle for one or two minutes is sufficient. ◆ Avoid quick starts and stops. Aggressive driving can lower fuel efficiency by 33 per cent on the highway and five per cent in the city. ◆ Consolidate trips. Several short trips taken from a cold start can use twice as much gas as one longer multi-purpose trip.

◆ Don’t haul unneeded items in the trunk. An extra 45 kilograms in the trunk reduces fuel efficiency by one to two per cent. ◆ Check the gas cap. Damaged, loose or missing gas caps allow gas to vaporize into the air. ◆ Replace dirty or clogged air filters on older vehicles to improve fuel consumption by as much as 14 per cent. ◆ Replace dirty spark plugs, which can

decrease fuel efficiency by 0.85 kilometres per litre. ◆ Change oil regularly to gain an additional 0.5 kilometres per litre. ◆ Keep your car properly tuned to improve fuel consumption by an average of four per cent. ◆ Keep tires properly inflated and improve fuel consumption by three per cent. – Source: Be Car Care Aware Canada

With no end in sight to rising gas prices, consumers who modify their driving habits and properly maintain their vehicles will get more kilometres per litre. Be Car Care Aware Canada recommends the following ways to drive smart and save gas money: ◆ Observe the speed limit. Fuel efficiency decreases rapidly above 100 km/h. ◆ Avoid excessive idling. Idling gets zero

Golden girls: The Lower Mainland AA ringette team will represent B.C. in the under-16 division at the Canadian Ringette Championships in Burnaby beginning April 9.

First nats for ringette teens Tom Berridge

sports editor

The wait is almost over for three Burnaby/New Westminster ringette teens. Defenders Danielle Wall and Mya Lopez of Burnaby and New Westminster goalie Tara Stevens will be kicking off the Canadian ringette championships at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on April 9 to 14. The Lower Mainland AA under16 skaters will be taking on London, Ont. in their opening match at the week-long national championships hosted by the local association. The championships will also include the top u-19 and National Ringette League teams in a build-up to the championship finals. “I’ve been waiting for this for

four years now,” said Stevens, who has been playing in goal for the past six seasons. The New Westminster Secondary School junior remembers in 2010 winning the provincial gold medal in overtime on the same day and with the same 3-2 score as Canada’s Olympic hockey team. Last year, Northern B.C. turned the tables on the Mainland all-stars in OT, giving incentive to make amends with the nationals coming to town. “Yeah it was, especially since we almost made it (last season). It was kind of heartbreaking in overtime. We were pretty motivated to win it this year,” said Wall, the team’s co-captain. “We thought it would be pretty cool to make it. It might be the only time in my career.”

With a mixture of first- and second-year players, the Lower Mainland AA’s are pretty solid in all positions, said Wall. “We all want to do well. We have a lot of different strengths – our goalies are really, really strong. … We’re pretty good at getting the ring out of our zone. … Our coaches encourage us to go in the scoring end,” Wall said. This year, the AA teens have former player Nicole Tjedkema as the team’s first female coach. Stevens said Tjedkema’s playing experience and medal record at previous nationals is something the players can identify with. “We work well on the ice, and our coaches do so much for us. They’re Ringette Page 55

Clan infielder goes deep for double softball sweep Tom Berridge

sports editor

Simon Fraser University’s Sammie Olexa was named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference women’s softball player of the week on Monday. The Clan third baseman had a stellar weekend, slapping seven hits in 13 at-bats, including backto-back walk-off home runs in a doubleheader sweep of the Central Washington Wildcats at Beedie Field in Burnaby last weekend. Olexa finished SFU’s fourgame sweep with nine runs batted in and a 1.385 slugging

percentage, doubling twice and going deep three times. “It’s so exciting to be named player of the week,” said Olexa in a Clan press release. “I was really trying to be more aggressive at the plate last weekend. I wanted to do a better job with pitch selection and just find a pitch that I could drive.” Olexa appears to be doing just that. To date, the sophomore infielder is currently batting 0.438 with 20 RBIs and five homers. “Sammie has been working hard on her swing of late, and it paid off in having a great weekend on the diamond by any measure,” said Clan head coach Mike

Olexa broke a pitcher’s duel Renney in the same release. “I expect two walk-off home runs in the opening game, smashing a two-run home run in the same day will be in the seventh inning a memory that will be to straightaway centre with her for some time. field, cashing in basShe is a bright light in erunner Megan Durrant our program with subfor the win. stantial upside.

On Saturday, the Clan snapped a three-game losing slide with a pair of wins against the visiting Wildcats. SFU opened with a 12-1 win before taking the second game by a 3-1 score. Olexa smacked a bases-loaded double in the third inning to stretch the Clan’s lead to 7-0. Starting pitcher Cara Lukawesky allowed just one hit to post the win. Softball Page 56

very inspiring,” Lopez said. “We respect them a lot, and when you respect your coaches, it makes us respect each other and play as a team.”That experience will come in handy, when B.C. has to face the likes of Western powerhouse Alberta and the expected strength of the Ontario teams. “We just got to play our best game and adapt to whatever they’re doing. It’s part of the game,” said Stevens. “We always want to win, you don’t want to have any bad games. They just might come back and kick you in the butt.” Win or lose, Wall says the real winners will be the spectators who take in the week-long action at local Burnaby and New Westminster arenas. “Honestly, I think they will be quite surprised. I think they will be quite impressed. Ringette players are quite fast. We don’t

have to focus on puckhandling as much, so we focus on skating, and we do excel in that category.” The B.C. u-16 team takes on London, Halifax and a team from Quebec in opening pool play. The schedule then reverts to a crossover format to pare down the 20 involved teams for the remaining four days of the competition. The medal games will be held on Saturday. B.C.’s u-19 team, including Kiah Duruisseau of Burnaby, will follow a similar format to the junior team. The Lower Mainland senior team will face Winnipeg, Rive Sud and Outaouais of Quebec in its preliminary draw. Medal games will also be held on the Saturday at the Copeland centre. The national league draw will follow a roundrobin format from April 10 to 13, with the Lower Mainland Thunder playing two games per day with

the exception of Friday.

Michelle Toor of Burnaby helped the Fraser Valley Phantom to the Pacific region AAA midget girls’ hockey final.

Trailing 7-6 in the seventh end and lying shot bowl, Fessler made the shot of the day with his last bowl, nudging the jack on a difficult final throw near the boundary line. “It was a brilliant finish, a brilliant way to finish,” MacGowan added. The Canadians lost in the final to the Philippines. “It was incredible, such a nice feeling, especially to know that no other Canadian team had finished so high,” said MacGowan. Following the Hong Kong competition, MacGowan and company went to Mainland China for the China Open. There, the greens were particularly slow, making the shotmaking more difficult,” MacGowan said. “For us as individuals, it shows to selectors we can play international bowls,” said MacGowan. “And anytime you can bring an international medal home, it’s quite an experience.”

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections

Aries March 21 - April 19: Your energy, charisma and clout remain high, and now, at last (Wednesday onward) you can charge ahead effectively, give orders, ask favours, impress the right/key people, and start important projects. (In doing so, remember that your luck is high in earnings and sales, so a good project would be monetary: to earn more, sell, buy – “lock in” money favour by starting a job, business, etc. now.) A government or similar obligation (taxes) hangs over you – solve this. Romance calls Sunday/Monday – answer! Tackle chores midweek. Relationships excite, confuse and climax, Thursday on. Taurus April 20-May 20: Lie low, rest and contemplate. Wednesday onward, plan future actions. This day ends recent delays, mistakes and indecisiveness. Lie low, rest and contemplate. Wednesday onward, plan future actions. This day ends recent delays, mistakes and indecisiveness. Your money picture looks better now into early August. It’s an excellent time to seek employment, especially before mid-May and after late June. Settle into home Sunday/Monday. Romance, pleasure, beauty and creativity lure you Tuesday/Wednesday. Tackle chores, Thursday/Friday. Someone wants you and doesn’t want you, Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Delays, mistakes and indecision end – technically Wednesday, but it can take you awhile to get back in the rhythm. By April 10 you’ll be fully confident and ready to act, and by the 13th (onward) your hopes will return solidly. That leaves the present week – despite some uncertainties, you are beginning to radiate a new, gentle charm; this is the beginning of a four-month phase during which others (Aries? Aquarius?) will be attracted to you, even as mate material. You’re back on the rise, Gemini! (But don’t push it before September.) Best travel day: Sunday. Love day: Friday.

Apt/Condos

Cancer June 21-July 22: Recent delays and mistakes end. They affected your career, prestige, legal, travel and intellectual pursuits. Your ambitions come into sharp focus – be ready to act on them next week. (This week is best spent reconnoitring, planning.) Your inner life grows sweeter over the next four months – old allies return, things go well with government links, and you luxuriate in moments of solitude. It’s a good phase to make family and property decisions. You might end things with a Libra – to both your benefit. Money’s lucky Sunday/Monday – chase it. Midweek’s friendly. Caution Thursday p.m. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: There’s always a reason. When you contemplate the last 15 years and the love disappointments that might have occurred, remember this. When you contemplate the next 15 years, include two things: 1) sex gets better; 2) past deception ends. The four months ahead boost your popularity, your happiness and playfulness. Someone’s flirting! A rather big wish involving travel or earnings will come true.This week, recent delays and indecisions end (technically, Wednesday morning). Your energy and charisma soar Sunday/Monday. Chase money midweek. Travel, friends late week. Be home, Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Delays and mistakes (especially in relationships) end Wednesday. Now forward, chase new investments (or solve debt problems) seek intimacy with someone compelling, charge into lifestyle changes, commitments, research and (health, etc.) diagnosis. You’re going to take some significant action in one or more of these sectors before July. Tuesday begins four months of unusual favour from higher-ups, parents and VIPs – propose a project or two. You might be promoted. Lie low, research and plan Sunday/Monday. Your energy and charisma surge midweek. Money needs caution Thursday/Friday.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Delays and indecision end. You’re free to proceed with new ventures, especially in work and relationships. The 15 months ahead promote success with members of the opposite sex. (Sweet understandings now to August, cheerful agreement September to June 2013. Marriage possible – but better if he/she shows after July 3.) These 15 months also boost your success in legal, international, higher education, cultural, publishing and far travel zones. Your popularity rises Sunday/Monday. Someone flirts. Retreat, rest and contemplate midweek. Your energy, charisma surge Thursday/Friday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Tackle chores. Ambition’s lucky Sunday/Monday. Recent delays and mistakes end. If an old flame reappeared lately, now it ends or proceeds. Huge love and sexual attractions loom, this April right into June 2013. Lust and love, lust and marriage, are different things, with different motives. Great good luck and karmic “tests” mingle deeply here: so proceed, but realize everything’s complex. Listen to clues, and check with your intuition. One thing’s fairly simple: marrying (or divorcing) is lucky until June, and quite unlucky (bad karma) from September 2012 to February 2014. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Recent delays and indecision melt away; you’re free to advance. Loving Venus enters your sign of partnership and relocation Tuesday, to stay until early August. Others will treat you with grace and affection. In addition, lucky Jupiter enters this same zone in June, to stay for a year. Love and luck! Yet difficult karma inhabits this area until Aug. 30. I’d wait. Partnering, relocation, fame, public interfacing, litigation – all might be a sweet trap to August. Sunday/Monday is wise, loving. Be ambitious midweek. Popularity, optimism Thursday/Friday. Retreat Saturday.

April 1-7, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Delays, mistakes and conundrums end (technically, Wednesday). Soon, too, a barrier will fall in a legal, educational, publishing, fame or international situation, perhaps one involving real estate, a family member, or “putting an end” to something. Messages that had been delayed or lost show up now. Your work scene grows much more pleasant to August and health improves – still, difficult karma creeps through these zones, so accept gladly what comes, but don’t pursue more. (This summer begins a huge increase in work for you, to mid-2013.) Climb a career ladder Thursday/Friday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Delays, mistakes end Wednesday. Fifteen years of indecision is also ending now. Little by little, every month, every year for the next 15, you will grow more firm in your convictions and choices. Drug/alcohol use will abate. Back to normal. Travel, talk, writing, details, errands surround you in April – get going! Your romantic, creative, speculative and child-oriented zones glow with sweet affection Tuesday – for four months. In June, even more good luck comes to these, for a year. It will be hard to escape love! But a subtle trap might exist here until September: be patient. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Personal indecision and outer delays end Wednesday, but it can take you a week or so to firmly find your feet and direction again. Next week (especially April 9, late, and 10) will be a superb time to chase money and prestige. This week, money’s a prime theme also, but a partner or a financial opportunity might be unstable, reluctant or delayed: be patient. Your home, family, security and property zone fills with affection and luck Tuesday to August. And an even bigger luck comes this June, to mid-13. Still, karmic traps might lurk: be patient until September. Mysteries, late week. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-560-1269
