Mayor says trip to Mesa worth the money But one former city councillor doubts such junkets have concrete value Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan says his trip to Mesa, Ariz. in March was worth the cost to taxpayers, despite facing media criticism for it over the past week. The city paid for eight officials to ven-

ture south on the U.S. junket. The mayor has been criticized in newspapers and on the radio for taking such a large group, which the City of Burnaby estimated would cost US $6,500, with funds coming from the city’s intergovernmental relations budget. The actual cost hasn’t been confirmed. “The reality is that if you don’t support these relationships by having regular contact, they atrophy,” Corrigan said Wednesday. While the trips to Arizona may not result in concrete business or financial returns,

Vaglio Fireplace Celebrates 100 Years! Vaglio Fireplace opened its doors in 1912 A HISTORY OF VAGLIO FIREPLACE

I

t all started in March of 1912. The Vaglio family started the business in their home on East Pender Street. What began as a masonry supply company eventually morphed into the fireplace business that it is to this day. During the mid ‘20’s, the company moved to a building on the corner of Richards St. and West Hastings St. After approximately 20 years at that location, Vaglio Fireplace moved to the 3600 Block of East Hastings St. The Vaglio

family built the store on the North East corner of Kootenay and East Hastings. This happened in 1945 and much of the construction material was reclaimed from the old Vancouver Hotel. Vaglio Fireplace was eventually sold by the Vaglio family in 1972 to the current owners, Doyne Harstone and his son Brad Harstone. In August of 1978, Vaglio Fireplace moved across the street to its current location at 3600 East Hastings St. Throughout its 100 year

‘Living’ building opens on Burnaby Mountain Newest addition to child-care services expected to be the first facility of its kind to attain Living Building status

Play time:

It was a day of celebration on Burnaby Mountain yesterday as the long-awaited UniverCity Childcare Centre officially opened its doors. Though children began to attend the facility several weeks ago, Thursday marked the grand opening of the centre, which is considered to be a leading example of green building practices. Like the nearby University Highlands Elementary School, the new child-care facility has been built with significant advancements in environmentally friendly construction. “This project resets the bar for sustainable design,” said Gordon Harris, president and CEO of the SFU Community Trust, in a statement. “SFU Community Trust is proud to have worked with the team at Hughes Condon Marler Architects to create a childcare centre with a net-zero environmental footprint, at a price that’s actually below child-care projects currently being built in the region.” Harris also said the centre, which was developed by the trust in partnership with the SFU Childcare Society and SFU’s faculty of education, represents the “next logical step in our effort to build a model sustainable community on Burnaby Mountain.” In all, the centre cost $3.2 million to build, and is expected to be the first building in Canada to meet the Living Building Challenge, which measures actual performance over time and not just the intentions of the design. To qualify, the building has to generate as much energy as it uses, collect or recycle more water than it consumes, and be built and operated using non-toxic materials that are sourced as locally as possible. For example, all building materials were screened to avoid any PVC, formaldehyde, phthalates, heavy metals and other harmful materials.

renovated to LEED Gold standards – LEED is a rating system for environmental design in residential and institutional settings. Pat Frouws, SFU Childcare Society executive director, was recently profiled by the NOW in her role overseeing the society – in all, the new centre will bring the total number of children attending full- and part-time child care on the campus to 320. There are already 25 children in the new centre, which operates under the Reggio Emilia approach to child care, and that number is expected to increase to 50 by September. “The Reggio Emilia approach views children as capable and competent, learning through a process of inquiry that allows them to follow their curiosity as they encounter the world around them,” she said. “This facility serves as an exemplary space for this (approach).” The outdoor area features unique play components, such as woven willow huts, stepping stones, a giant rope nest, lookout platform, rainwater channel, and slide and sand play area.

Metro Vancouver residents are divided on the issue of tanker traffic in the Burrard Inlet, according to a new poll commissioned by Burnaby MP Kennedy Stewart. Mustel Group conducted the poll in March, asking regional residents about Kinder Morgan’s expansion plans for the Trans Mountain pipeline, which will bring more tanker traffic to the Burrard Inlet. The poll showed 44 per cent of Metro Vancouver residents support the expansion while 44 per cent oppose, and 12 per cent are undecided. “The environmental risks of

Hospital housekeeping audit highlights issues Christina Myers staff reporter

A recent housekeeping audit at Burnaby Hospital came back with a failing grade for some areas in the facility. The March 29 audit – part of regular monthly audits that occur at sites around the health region – came back with an overall score of 83 per cent, two per cent shy of the provincial benchmark of 85 per cent. But some areas of the hospital actually scored above the benchmark line – areas deemed “very high risk,” including the intensive care unit and operating rooms, received a score of 87 per cent. Low-risk areas, such as administrative offices and maintenance spaces, received the lowest grades at 72 per cent. Spaces that are more directly related to patient health and infection control are more heavily weighted when the overall score is calculated. Fraser Health Authority spokesperson Roy Thorpe-Dorward told the NOW that the audits weren’t sparked by the recent concerns about ongoing C. difficile infections but are part of the hospital’s normal routine. However, he said that any time an audit shows a mark below the benchmark, it’s taken seriously – though also with an eye to overall trends. “The standards in B.C. (for benchmarks) are the highest in the country, but we do expect our sites to adhere to those,” he said. “These scores are based on one audit and, of course, they vary over time – the best measure is to look at trends over time.” For example, he noted that Burnaby Hospital scored just above 85 per cent overall on the previous month’s audit and 86 per cent for the full 2011 year. “The next full year will be compiled and

released in late August or September,” he noted. The audits are performed by Westech Systems and are carried out monthly but at non-scheduled times without prior notification to staff. Areas inspected include doors, walls, ceilings, vents, flooring, carpeting, baseboards, windows, beds and stretchers, clinical equipment, furnishings, light fixtures, phones, sinks, toilets and more. After the March 29 audit, the report was looked at by hospital administration and the cleaning contractor, Aramark, and a repeat audit was performed on Wednesday of this week. In the re-audit, the overall score jumped to 86.43 per cent. “So, looking at this and talking to the contractor, what we think is that in focusing on the high-risk areas over the last weeks (during the deep cleaning to limit C. difficile infection), there’s a possibility that the low-risk areas weren’t paid as close attention to,” said Thorpe-Dorward. In late February, a letter written by several of the hospital’s head doctors to the Fraser Health Authority about ongoing infection outbreaks was made public. In it, the doctors said that the hospital had a persistent problem with outbreaks of Clostridium difficile – a highly infectious bacteria that causes diarrhea, nausea and dehydration – among patients at a rate that topped regional or national averages. The letter sparked a deep-cleaning at the hospital through March, and the introduction of several new measures to limit the spread of C. difficile. Thorpe-Dorward said that the most recent infection numbers are promising. “The honest answer is that it is too early to say (how effective the response has been) – it takes time to show up,” he said. “But it does look good so far.”

The legal drinking age in B.C. is 19 – movies that are classified as Restricted or Adult are for adults only, but movies that are classified 18A must have those under 18 accompanied by an adult.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Education plan attacks teachers

Dear Editor:

I just finished reading the B.C. Education Plan the government has been advertising so vigorously recently. What is most striking is the call for “more emphasis on key competencies like self-reliance, critical thinking, inquiry, creativity, problem solving, innovation, teamwork and collaboration, cross-cultural understanding and technological literacy.” If the minister and the premier took the time to do so, they would see that this is what the vast majority of teachers do (and more) every single day of the school year! Teachers continue to do this despite having more students in their classes and more students with special needs in their charge. In fact, it was this yet-tobe-elected premier that imposed the illegal legislation

that has led to deteriorating classroom conditions. The government’s plan purports to have five key elements: personalized learning, quality teaching and learning, flexibility and choice, high standards and learning empowered by technology. The best way to achieve personalized learning is to put limits on class sizes, so teachers have more time to get to know the needs, interests and capabilities of their students. Quality teaching is already a hallmark of the B.C. education system. It has been achieved not only through the many professional development opportunities offered on designated Pro-D days but also through self-reflection, collaboration and mentorship within the schools. Already, if principals have concerns about the teaching practices of a staff member there are provisions in place to assess that teacher and Quit Page 7

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Quit blaming teachers continued from page 6

put in place the remediation that may be required. For the majority of us, professional development happens on a daily basis. Flexibility and choice for students are already part of the education system. Parents can choose to enroll their child in the public or private school of their choice. There are also many online and homeschooling learning opportunities for students who prefer those options. What is worrisome to me as a teacher and a parent is the goal to provide “more flexibility to organize classes and other learning experiences.” Past experience shows that this means adding additional students, including those with special needs, to classes and replacing special needs teachers with special needs teaching assistants. The new legislation goes beyond this by ignoring seniority in the hiring of teachers. This is not about providing a higher quality learning experience for students; it is about hiring teachers with less classroom experience, placing them in classrooms with more kids, and saving a few bucks. Meeting high standards is achieved by giving teachers the opportunity to understand their students better. Again, this is by and large a function of class size and composition and parental involvement. Public schools can achieve the highest of standards if they get the funding they need and involve parents in a meaningful way. All in all, the B.C. Education Plan places most of the blame on teachers for an underfunded system, seeks to save money at the expense of students’ and teachers’ classroom conditions, and erodes the value of public schools as a builder of community. B.C. teachers are professionals and will

continue to prepare students for the 21st century with or without the confidence of the Liberal government. Rick McGowan, Burnaby

Re: Campaign targets Lennikov – again, Burnaby NOW, April 11. An open letter to the Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Association: Your continued attacks on Mikhail Lennikov’s presence in Canada are so sickening and unCanadian. All problems to do with matters of your “homeland” are not acceptable in Canada. You promote hatred and racism against all Russians or anyone who has been associated with the KGB in their past. The most important thing is that Mikhail Lennikov did not hide the fact that he had worked for the KGB but to you people that is enough to promote hatred. Actually, there seems to be a good legal case against your association of racial hatred in the courts, and perhaps this should be the way to show you what bad Canadians you are. Yes, there was a problem with Canada interning some Ukrainians in the past, but that has nothing at all to do with Mikhail Lennikov. If your group really wants to follow this hateful approach, maybe Canada should investigate how many Ukrainians who are now in Canada were Nazi sympathizers and did whatever their Nazi friends wanted them to do during the Second World War – including assisting in the murders of Russians and others. It is time for you to let Mikhail Lennikov and his family, who have lived a lawful existence in Canada, be. Your group is a very hateful group, and you should be ashamed of yourselves. Patricia Muss, Burnaby

the time?” Again, there are some really good teachers out there who are worth every cent they’re paid, maybe more. But as long as the BCTF gets its way, there’s no way to reward them. Every teacher is paid based on seniority and the number of degrees he or she holds, degrees the rest of us are forced to pay for. Teaching is a rewarding profession which, one hopes, people would freely enter into because, first and foremost, they actually want to teach and

be really good at it. But standardized testing is out of the question, so the rest of us have no choice but to stand by and watch as teaching goes from being a well-paying job, to a greatpaying job, and finally to a completely outrageous paying job. And what, pray tell, will become of our children if we continue to allow those who teach them to believe they’re amongst a rare breed of highly dedicated professionals who perform heroic acts of pedagoguery … less than 200 days of

the year? Well, I’ll tell you … The next thing you know teachers will be making a whopping 35 per cent more than their counterparts in the federal civil service, and they’ll still think they deserve more! Oh, wait. My mistake; we’re already there. Whatever you do, don’t discuss this within the environs of a school, and certainly not on talk radio. If only the Mafia had it so good.

Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan called for community and business support for a new hospital in his annual state of the city address Wednesday. Burnaby Hospital on Kincaid Street opened in 1952 with an extended care wing and an acute care tower added during the 1970s. “Our hospital has been left to atrophy over the years without the support that it needs to be very, very good,” he said in an interview after his speech to the Burnaby Board of Trade Wednesday afternoon. Corrigan wants the new hospital to be built at Canada Way and Willingdon Avenue, on the site of the former provincial youth detention centre. The proximity to the British Columbia Institute of Technology and Discovery Park would make the new hospital a perfect place for training and research, Corrigan said. “I see the coupling of all of it being what they haven’t been able to accomplish with UBC,” Corrigan said, adding the University of British Columbia hospital is “mainly a doctors’ training hospital, but it is so remote that it doesn’t have the connection with the community. But I think if you had a hospital like this, you would have that community base.” He added that Simon Fraser University’s kinesiology department could also train at the new hospital.

“It would be interesting to have a teaching hospital that wasn’t focused on teaching doctors, that was focused on teaching all of the other people who are required to work at a hospital, which is the majority,” Corrigan said. He has approached Fraser Health and planners at Burnaby Hospital with the idea, he said, as well as the Burnaby Hospital Foundation, the business community and the ethnic community. “I’m hoping I can get some of our local politicians involved,” he said, adding it is an issue that crosses all party lines. “I’m trying to create a groundswell of people who are willing to take on this task,” he said. “I’ve been surprised by how much interest there is.” The persistent outbreaks of the highly infectious bacteria Clostridium difficile at Burnaby Hospital have highlighted the need for a new facility, Corrigan said. The provincial government will have to decide if retrofitting the current hospital’s newer building and adding to it is the way to go, or if they build an entirely new facility, Corrigan said. But Corrigan said it isn’t something that would happen overnight, or even in a year or two. “It probably would not be completed while I’m mayor,” he said. “It’s going to take at least a decade to complete a project like this.” For the full state of the city address, go to the city’s website at www.burnaby.ca. jfuller-evans@burnabynow.com

MLA raises alarm about rising policing costs RCMP pay increases could cost cities millions of dollars Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Burnaby MLA Kathy Corrigan is raising concerns about rising policing costs for B.C. municipalities. On March 21, provincial Justice Minister Shirley Bond signed a 20-year RCMP policing contract with the federal government, but news of several retroactive RCMP pay raises came to light after the deal was signed. “These increases could significantly impact many local budgets, including a $2 to $3 million hit to Richmond and a $6 to $8 million hit to Surrey,” Corrigan said in

a media statement. Corrigan did not know how much the costs would be for Burnaby but guessed it would be in the millions. “Burnaby has a smaller detachment than Surrey but a larger detachment than Richmond,” she said. According to Corrigan, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews already warned Bond of the pay increases. “The federal public safety minister claims to have shared the information (about the pay increases) with the provinces twice during negotiations, so as chief negotiator and signatory for the province B.C. Liberal Justice Minister Shirley Bond has an obligation to confirm whether or not she was aware of these looming increases before she presented the contract

Corrigan said. The Corrigans flew to Mesa from Bellingham, Wash., as Mesa city officials had asked them to fly into the city airport, which has only recently begun serving commercial airlines. “Getting a commercial airline – Allegiant Air – in is a big deal for Mesa,” he said. Corrigan said he has learned from Mesa’s taxation problems. Cities in Arizona are dependent on sales taxes and development fees to cover their budgets, and Mesa doesn’t currently charge property taxes, he explained. Therefore, cities in the area compete for business dollars and struggle when the economy dips. “Sometimes learning what not to do is more important than learning what to do,” he said. “It’s much better to have a consistent property tax and to not be in the position of depending on sales tax.” The delegation also looked

THEN & NOW – A SPECIAL SERIES EXPLORES BURNABY’S HISTORY THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHS There’s no better way to get a glimpse into history than through the window of a photograph. People, places and events come to life again through the snapshots of the past. Recent photos reveal just how much has changed – or, quite often, how much has stayed the same.

Last week, the NOW published the first instalment of this series, Then & NOW, with a closer look at a longtime city resident. In today’s issue, reporter Christina Myers shares another story from the city’s past and present: the story of the Kostyniuks, their 60-year marriage, and their connection to

the long history of Burnaby. Keep an eye on upcoming editions for more instalments of Then & NOW, and watch our website at www.burnabynow. com for a photo gallery of images from the series. Have your own “then and now” story? Email cmyers@burnabynow.com.

When Joy Sanders married John Kostyniuk on April 19, 1952, she was – by news accounts of the day – a “lovely picture” in a “gown of imported white lace and net with fitted bodice and bouffant skirt, fashioned with peplum front and full train.” Orange blossoms decorated the headpiece and veil; a bouquet of pink roses, lily-of-the-valley and stephanotis completed the outfit. In her hands, she carried a small lace handkerchief, an heirloom gift given by her grandmother when she was born. These details and more – including descriptions of each member of the bridal party, right down to the mauve-gowned flower girl – were reported in Vancouver newspapers following the big event. It was an important wedding in the growing comDATELINE 1952 munity where both John and In 1952, the year that John and Joy Kostyniuk Joy were familiar faces – one married in All Saints article characterAnglican Church at the ized it as “one of corner of Watling and Royal Oak, Burnaby was the most socially notable weddings still enjoying the postwar boom years with to take place in growth throughout the South Burnaby.” city and a population Earlier articles nearing 70,000.

The family home was just north of Kingsway on what is now known as Sanders Street near Kingsway – and yes, it was named for her parents, Lawrence and Elsie Sanders, who were early Burnaby pioneers. Later, the Sanders family moved to a large home at Victory and Jubilee, and when Joy grew up she worked at Burnaby city hall as the switchboard operator where she became widely known as the “Burnaby Hello Girl.” John had moved to Burnaby to attend barber school, coming from Vancouver Island where he’d grown up. He would later own and run a barbershop at Royal Oak and Kingsway; when the pair were

Going strong: Joy and John Kostyniuk, above, will celebrate their 60th anniversary on April 19. The pair were married, at right, in 1952 – an event that made headlines in papers of the day. Joy’s family were considered city pioneers, and both Joy and John were well known in the city: John owned a barbershop on Kingsway and Joy was known as the “Burnaby Hello Girl” because of her work as the switchboard operator at Burnaby municipal hall. first married, they lived in the back of the shop. The two crossed paths at dances that were held at Jubilee Labour Hall (a building that has its own unique history as the site of early political organization in the city) and soon hit it off. Daughter Shirley O’Toole tipped the NOW off to the approaching big day. Her parents, now in their 80s (Joy turns 85 today, April 13, and John will be 88 in the fall) still live in the home on Portland Street that they moved into in 1958. She and her sisters, Daryce and Adele, were raised there and all three are still in the metro Vancouver area: Shirley lives with husband Al in Surrey, Daryce and husband Paul are in North Delta, and Adele is in Coquitlam. In all, John and Joy now have five

grandchildren: Megan, Danielle, Laura, Christopher and Celina. Megan lives in Burnaby. The entire clan will be gathering for a private family brunch to mark the big day later this month – and, fittingly, it will take place in Burnaby, at the Riverway Golf Course. It will be a slightly more intimate gathering than the party that kicked off their marriage six decades ago on that spring day in 1952. After the ceremony at All Saints Anglican Church (which still sits today at the corner of Watling and Royal Oak), the 150 guests reconvened at Joy’s parents’ home a few blocks away for the reception. Childhood friends and lifelong family acquaintances toasted the bride and groom; one guest reportedly even sang two solos to the new couple, I’ll Walk

Beside You and I Love You Truly. The minister who had married them told the gathered guests about his own link to the Sanders family: his uncle had performed the marriage ceremony for Joy’s parents 37 years prior. John’s parents travelled from Vancouver Island for the event – at that time, the crossing took five hours from Victoria to Vancouver – and telegrams came from England to congratulate the young couple. Afterwards, the two flew to Reno, Nevada for a honeymoon before returning to Burnaby to start their married life together. Sixty years later, they don’t travel quite so far from home – but each day, they head over together to a nearby Tim Hortons for a cup of coffee.

Vintage smiles needed Volunteers are an integral part of the Burnaby Village Museum. Without them, the Museum’s streets and buildings would not be as alive as they are, and many of the Museum’s programs could not be held. Volunteers are used in several areas at the museum both behind the scenes and enhancing the on-site visitor experience. “Sewing Circle” volunteers help create and produce costumes for staff while “Curatorial” volunteers assist with work on the Museum’s library. Specialized skills are used by the volunteer antique automechanics and for the production of replica antique toys for hands-on use. Our most noticed volunteers are wearing 1920s costumes and lead school groups around the site, provide information, and initiate heritage games with visitors.

An important volunteer position here at the Village is as our Honorary Reeve. The Reeve in Burnaby is a title that transitioned into that of the Mayor. Mr. Alan H. Emmott served as the City’s last Reeve and first Mayor (19581968). In Burnaby, in the 1920s, the period represented here at the Village, the Reeve was the most senior administrative position. Our Honorary Reeve position was established twelve years ago in 2000. The incumbent, selected from among the Museum’s volunteers, serves as its ambassador, meeting the public and speaking at special events. Megan Little is our 2012 Honorary Reeve. One of Megan’s first experiences at the Village was a Regional Heritage Fair participant in 2008. She (and some of her friends) then signed up to be regular volunteers. Since then, she has logged an amazing 251 hours.

Megan Little, 2012 Honorary Reeve

She is currently a student at New Westminster Secondary. Her passions include playing the violin, dancing and volunteering. Her poise, ready smile and enthusiasm will help her fulfill her duties as Honorary Reeve. For more information on becoming a volunteer, give us a call at 604297-4560 or check out our website at www.burnabyvillagemuseum.ca / about us / volunteers

Many thanks to all the volunteers who donate their time and efforts to make our community a better place

Volunteering is a fun way for teens to share their talents If you know some teenagers who might be looking for something different to do, volunteering is a rewarding experience and a great way to build relationships. It’s also a way to share skills and talents to really make a difference, say specialists in this field. There are many benefits to volunteering and here are a few:

Photo:Dreamstime

Increased activity—By participating in volunteer activities, you spend more time exploring the world. Volunteering also allows you to do something different outside your normal daily schedules. A volunteer activity will develop your leadership and teambuilding skills. Through time volunteering, you might even develop a new hobby or passion.

Learning outside of the classroom—Volunteering teaches about global and local issues. For example, involvement in activities, such as World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine, shows that there are people in the world who are not as fortunate, but there are simple ways to make a difference. Information on the 30 Hour Famine can be found at famine.ca. Building relationships—You will build relationships where you volunteer. You might meet new friends or create long-time contacts for the future.

Neighbourhood house teaches adults reading, writing The South Burnaby Neighbourhood House is looking for adults who need help reading and writing to take part in a new literacy program.

the learners who benefit from it,” he said. “They’re not just acquiring an invaluable skill, they are increasing their confidence and sense of self-worth.”

“Literacy is a really important area of concern,” said Antonia Beck, executive director of the South Burnaby Neighbourhood House. “There’s a direct relationship between poverty and literacy.”

If you know an adult who could benefit from the program, call the South Burnaby Neighbourhood House at 604-431-0400 and ask for Rajeeta.

The “community adult literacy program” matches trained, volunteer tutors with students, who get individualized help learning to read and write. Volunteers are now undergoing a five-week training program. Adults who need to improve their literacy skills are welcome, whether they are learning to read and write for the first time or they are new to Canada. “I think finding the learners is going to be trickier,” said Beck. The program is free, and the provincial government is providing nearly $40,000 in funding. The South Burnaby Neighbourhood House is partnering with Douglas College, which already runs a similar program for its students. Douglas College faculty helped by providing training for the volunteers. Local MLA Harry Bloy lauded the program in a press release. “A very important aspect of this type of program is how much it empowers

Volunteer visitors are important for housebound seniors lunch in a nice café.

The Volunteer Visitor program is a very important program for housebound seniors and persons with disabilities. It is well known that social interaction is a vital part of a healthy lifestyle, one that is difficult to achieve when a person is unable to get out and about due to age-related issues or disability, and is made even more difficult when a language barrier exists. Citizen Support Services, a department of the City of Burnaby, provides carefully screened Volunteer Visitors for isolated clients who live independently in Burnaby. The friendly Volunteer Visitor visits once a week for an hour and a half and can do many social activities with the client from sharing a cup of tea over a game of cards or Scrabble to listening to music or chatting about the good old days while looking at photo albums. Another very important activity would be going for a walk with someone who may need an arm or just a caring person

Families wanted for homestay students Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

A North Vancouver homestay company is hoping more Burnaby families will open their doors to international students. Cheryl Lee, director of MLI Homestay, said that Burnaby is a popular destination with international students, and the company needs more local families willing to put them up. “We’re always looking for new, good families,” Lee said. “We have more students coming for September than we had for this past September, so we’re looking to expand our community of families.” Homestay families typically provide students with a private room, meals and help settling into Canadian culture. “Because they are still high school students, we are looking for families that can put them into family life,” Lee said. “They are still kids that require family support.” The students attend public or private schools, and one of their goals is to practise English. The students pay to be in the MLI program, and the host family can earn $800 a month.

Pssst, we’ll let you in on a little secret. Instead of emptying your bank account on a new $36,000 Murano, consider instead a similar looking, yet slightly smaller AWD version of the Rogue and save yourself about $8,000. Four-cylinder is a gas miser. Nissan’s strong entry into the compact-tall-wagon class of automobiles is the Rogue, which is actually pretty roomy, quite fuel-ef!cient and a handsome rig to boot. Save Thousands NOW. The Rouge is the best vehicle in its class and is selling with the BEST deals today!

HEALTH

Women’s health: getting to the heart of the matter Program open to women in Burnaby and around region Christina Myers staff reporter

If you don’t have your health, nothing else matters. A local nurse is hoping to encourage women in Burnaby to spend a little time improving their health with a unique prevention program offered through the B.C. Women’s Hospital and Health Centre. Diane Middagh is a family nurse practitioner and member of the Women’s Heart Program team. The New Westminster resident says that the program is a unique opportunity for women to help protect themselves from heart disease. “Heart disease is the number 1 killer of women in Canada,” she said. “Lifestyle modification is challenging for all of us. Most people have a good understanding of health (changes) but making the next step – getting assistance and making some of those changes can be tough.” The program is open to women of all ages who have at least two of the following conditions: high blood pressure, diabetes or pre-diabetes, family history of heart disease, smoking history, obesity, metabolic syndrome, depression, or high or low cholesterol. Women can be referred through their doctors, or call themselves to book an appointment without a referral. Middagh says they then have some blood work done and are scheduled for the first appointment, which is an hour long.

Check

“In that first appointment, we go over risk factors for heart disease, we do a complete cardiovascular exam and start the process of looking at some action plans,” she said. These are done one-on-one, though the program has recently begun offering some group medical appointments which have been quite successful. “Women learn from each other in a group setting – it helps with decreasing isolation … and de-stigmatizing chronic diseases that they may have,” she said. Patients then follow up with a 30-minute appointment, usually between six weeks and three months, and additional appointments as needed. Though most come inperson, they can also request telephone followup if their schedule makes it difficult to get in. Though Middagh notes that they don’t yet have statistics to compare the outcomes for women in the program to those with no interventions, they do see significant improvements in individual cases. “We have had people quit smoking, lose some weight, dropped blood pressure – and certainly it’s improving self-efficacy, improving knowledge,” she said. Middagh notes that the clinic is nocharge and encourages people to consider contacting them if they have two or more of the listed conditions. The clinic runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. two days a week (Monday and Friday) at B.C. Women’s Health Centre. Call 604-875-3290 for more information or to book an appointment. www.twitter.com/ChristinaMyersA

Power-X taken off shelves MEDICAL FILES Christina Myers

A

nother potentially dangerous health product has been pulled from the shelves in Burnaby. Health Canada recently announced that the unauthorized health product “Power-X” was being pulled after testing found it included undeclared thiodimethylsildenafil, which is similar to the prescription medication sildenafil. Individuals with heart problems, those at risk of stroke or those already taking any nitrate drugs may have serious complications if taking Power-X. The product is promoted as increasing sexual performance and desire and was pulled from the Chong Kun Dang health store in Burnaby.

Good choices

With cancer awareness at the forefront in April, a local natural foods store is putting health and educa-

tion on the menu. Choices Market, which has a location on 10th Avenue, will offer a seminar entitled From Prevention to Care: A Whole Person Approach to Cancer, on April 17. The event is part of a month-long series of events and activities at Choices, called Inspire Health In April, in conjunction with InspireHealth, a cancer care centre. The seminar will look at information about nutrition and its role in preventing and treating cancer. See www.choices market.com for more.

Scam warning

If it sounds fishy – or “phishy” – it probably is. The Fraser Health Authority discovered recently that a phishing scam was being carried out, posing as Fraser

Health recruitment. An email offering jobs and training asked recipients for funds for an interview/training fee in the Philippines. The authority says the email is a scam. “Fraser Health would never ask for funds tied to an interview process or recruitment,” reads a warning from the organization. Phishing scams target people through email messages, websites and phone calls in an effort to steal money and, in some cases, personal information or banking details. Signs of a phishing scam can be spelling errors, bad grammar, links that don’t match the actual link address, threats or offers that sound too good to be true. To learn more, see www.antifraudcentrecentreantifraude.ca.

Life lessons found in death HEALTHWISE

Dr. Davidicus Wong

D

eath informs life. It can give us a perspective on our lives – and our relationships – that can lift us from the complacency of our common days. It can give us urgency to do what we’ve always wanted to do and say what needs to be said: admitting our mistakes, forgiving others theirs, expressing appreciation and love. We can attend to what matters most when we anticipate the end of our own lives or the life of one we love. With this urgency, it can feel that we had wasted our precious time with not enough left ahead. When death is unexpected, it is too late. Most often we leave much undone and unsaid. We wait too long to have those crucial conversations. We may be by nature

quick to anger but slow to forgive. We may be even slower to apologize. Yet we all know that our days are numbered, though we live as if they will go on forever. It is our nature to get caught up in the business of living – pursuing what seems more important at the time. But when we recognize that our time with those we love is limited, we realize our relationships matter most. My father-in-law passed peacefully this Easter Sunday. Recognizing that his long life was ending, he found strength and comfort with what mattered most throughout his life: family and faith. One of his greatest strengths was his devotion to his family firmly founded on his loving partnership with my mother-in-law. His deepest joy and greatest pride was in his children and grandchildren. With each of them, he shared an unshakable faith and love. Where do families and friends find comfort with loss?

Does dual exhaust system make a difference? CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: I really like the look of the prominent chrome dual exhausts seen on so many cars and trucks these days. To me, they give a look of masculinity to the vehicle. For years, it seemed that manufacturers installed only single exhausts, except on the most powerful or sporty cars. And in many cases, the exhausts were hidden from view. Are “duals” now being installed more for looks, or do they really enhance performance, fuel mileage, etc.? Thanks. – Gary

Check

TOM: Good question, Gary. Real dual exhausts will increase performance. RAY: Here’s the basic tutorial: Fresh gasoline and air go into the cylinders. It gets detonated by the spark plug, it combusts and then it turns into what? Exhaust. TOM: And before you can send more fresh gasoline in there, you have to get that exhaust out. The faster you can get the old stuff out and the new stuff in, the better your engine “breathes,” and the more power it can produce. RAY: A lot of manufacturers have made their engines breathe better by adding more valves per cylinder – valves are the holes through which stuff enters and exits the cylinders. TOM: But another way to improve breathing is to add an additional exhaust pipe. For instance, if you

have a V-6 or V-8 engine, you can use one exhaust pipe to take the exhaust from just one bank of cylinders all the way to the back of the car. And you could have a second exhaust pipe for the other bank of cylinders. That gives you twice as much capacity to remove exhaust. RAY: So it does work. But very few cars actually do it. More often, what you see are fake dual exhausts. There’s actually a single exhaust pipe running from the engine to the muffler, and then the pipe is split, sending one tailpipe to each side of the car. That’s just for looks. TOM: Then there’s the really cheap version, where the single exhaust pipe goes within inches of the rear bumper, then splits into two exhaust tips at the very end. Neither of those systems

will affect performance. But I agree with you – they do enhance the look of a car and make it look more expensive. RAY: Of course, the problem with a real dual exhaust system is that it is expensive – not only to manufacture, but to main-

tain. Think about it. When it rusts out, you’ll need to buy two new exhaust systems. You’ll be a hero at your local Midas Muffler. The guys’ll have pinup posters of you in every bay. ◆
