City balks at signing contract
Burnaby resident Cassie Walde is lobbying the Ministry of Health to help pay to have missing teeth replaced. Her jaw was rebuilt after an injury, but she is missing most of the teeth on one side.
Mayor says “we’re seriously looking at our policing options going forward” Alfie Lau
Burnaby is the first B.C. municipality to publicly announce that it will not sign off on the province’s 20-year RCMP contract with the federal government before next week’s May 31 deadline. “We’re not going to be signing off before the deadline,” said Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan. “Other cities may also not sign off, but we’re seriously looking at our policing options going forward.” The province had originally set April 30 as its preferred deadline for the 62 municipalities to sign off on the deal, but extended that to May 31 last month. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, who was the civic observer in negotiating the new policing contract, said 39 municipalities had signed off as of Thursday morning, with more coming in the next week as municipalities get back to their normal business after the long weekend. Corrigan said Burnaby is looking at the alternatives of its own police force, a provincial force or even working in a policing partnership with neighbouring municipalities. “We are seriously looking at any and all alternatives,” said Corrigan. Corrigan added that the citizens of Burnaby won’t notice any change to policing in the city because of the city not signing off on the deal. Corrigan said the key issues for him in not signing off on the deal are the RCMP Page 8

Gov’t. refuses to pay for teeth Christina Myers staff reporter
Cassie Walde is, in many ways, a typical young woman: she has her own apartment in Burnaby, she’s recently started taking college classes, and she’s excitedly planning for her future. But Walde, unlike most young 20-somethings, spends much of her free time going to doctors’ appointments and dealing with ongoing pain and discomfort – and writing letters to lobby the provincial government to help with mounting medical bills for extensive dental work she needs to have done. It’s an uphill battle, she says, and one she knows she may not ultimately win. “I know I’m not the only one who’s made this argument, and I’ve been told not

to expect (the government) to change their mind, but I feel like I have to try – I have to keep going,” she said. Two years ago, Walde had a life-changing accident that left a large portion of her jaw completely shattered. Since then, she’s faced hospital stays, reconstructive surgery and bone grafts to repair the damage, all of which was covered under her provincial MSP coverage. But to get seven new teeth to replace the ones she’s currently missing in her mouth will cost her about $35,000 out of pocket because they’re classified as “dental” and not “medical,” despite the fact that her doctors have argued that the teeth are a medical necessity since her bone grafts will continue to degrade and need to be redone repeatedly without them. She currently has an infection in the bone

graft, and the graft itself will disintegrate over time without new teeth to keep it in place. But the teeth, without which she also can’t chew on that side of her mouth, have been deemed cosmetic, she says. She’s been hesitant to go public with her story, because the details surrounding the accident are hard for her to talk about and may spark judgment from those who encounter her. “I’m hard-working, I’m responsible, I’m not stupid, and I want to contribute and be part of the world,” she says. But two years ago, Walde says she made a bad decision that altered the course of her life. She and a friend had purchased a product called salvia, a species of sage that Teeth Page 10

Deputy city manager rides off into the sunset Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Rick Earle, Burnaby’s deputy city manager, is putting down the city reports and contracts after 30 years, and getting on his motorcycle. Earle, who started working on the city’s budgets in the finance department in January 1982, retired on May 24 and soon, he’ll be riding to the Four Corners in the Southwestern U.S. with four friends. “I’ll be doing a lot of traveling,” he says of his retirement. Earle has always owned dirt bikes, he says, and began riding touring bikes about five years ago. He traveled down to Las Vegas last May, keeping mostly to the side roads, and loved it, he says. The trip to the Four Corners – the quadripoint between Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah – is the first he is taking after retiring, but there are others he’s planning, such as a trip to the Maritimes with his wife in the fall. “Thirty years is a long time,” Earle says of his career. “There are things I want to do while I’m still mobile.” Earle worked at Burnaby General Hospital, and then General Electric, after graduating from Simon Fraser University with a bachelor’s degree in economics and commerce and becoming a certified general accountant. He applied for a job with the city when he found out General Electric planned to transfer him to either Toronto or Cleveland. “It was a one-way ticket,” he said of the transfer. Earle took the city job, thinking it would be a brief stint before he returned to the private sector. “When I started, I thought I’d work here for five years,” he said. “I thought that a public service job didn’t look good on a resume.” But he found the work interesting, and stayed on, becoming director of finance in 1992. The variety of the work was compelling, Earle says, as he learned about everything from the city libraries to the water system.

Seeing double: City staff made deputy city manager Rick Earle a life-sized cutout of himself, in honour of his retirement this week.
“I do know a lot about sewage,” he says, laughing. “When you’re in finance you get to touch on all of those things,” Earle explains. “Everything needs money to run.” Working at city hall has meant collaborating with people who are passionate about what they do, he says. “You’re always dealing with constructive conflict,” Earle says, adding that if
there’s no conflict in an organization it usually means the staff doesn’t care about their jobs. In 2010, Earle moved into the position of deputy city manager, sharing the job with Chad Turpin. Earle was considering retiring at the time when Mayor Derek Corrigan offered him the job. Earle handles the fire department and
Burnaby RCMP, while Turpin takes care of “everything else,” he says. Most recently, Earle has been working on organizing civil staffing at the Burnaby RCMP. He is busy wrapping up his work with the city, he said on May 16, riding that fine line of seeing some projects through while letting go and delegating others, and completing his last week at city hall.
MLA pleased with inquest recommendations Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Raj Chouhan is pleased with the jury’s recommendations following an inquest into the deaths of three mushroom farm workers, but the Burnaby MLA wants government to implement the
changes. Chouhan, the NDP’s labour critic and a founder of the Canadian Farmworkers Union, said the recommendations are good, but only if they are implemented. “You can have the best law in the world, but if it’s not enforced, it’s useless,” he said.

There are two main ponds in the park, and the snakehead has been spotted at the lower pond, closest to the pitch-and-putt near Imperial Drive. The provincial government also put a barrier up at the creek connected to the pond to prevent any snakehead fish from travelling to other bodies of water.

We expect the government and WorkSafe B.C. will approve of the concept but will have a harder time instituting the recommendations. The agricultural sector is a large employer, and one that uses seasonal workers who often don’t speak English. Unscrupulous employers rely on new
immigrants’ desperate economic situations and ignorance of health and safety regulations. Workers who are struggling to feed their families are less apt to argue with a boss who can replace them with another, much more compliant, worker. Above all else, we need to ensure that facilities with any potential dangers can be shut down immediately. If there is the slightest possibility that a worker may be injured or killed, operations should cease – period. Warnings are simply not good enough when workers’ lives are on the line.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR City financial details ‘appalling’ Dear Editor:
I was appalled after reading the self congratulatory comments from our local mutual admiration society, otherwise known as city hall. Vague statements like “the budget is strong,” “we’ve done the best job we can,” the city is “an efficient operation,” a faint promise that “future increases could possibly be less” (thanks a lot), and the recent sister-city junket only prove that this council is out of touch with the economic realities surrounding it. Are we to believe that, if the city had to, they could not find one per cent in savings? Is it really “extremely difficult to bring in lower numbers”? I am skeptical – it depends on how hard

they looked, and I suspect not very hard. That’s why city staff get paid well to make tough decisions. If the best they could do is a four per cent increase, then their best isn’t good enough. The reason the city can do this is because cities get less scrutiny than higher levels of government, and they simply pass on increases through higher property taxes with little or no media attention or accountability especially with no opposition on council. I also have to take issue with the Burnaby NOW publishing soundbites patting themselves on the back without challenging the numbers. Why are civic employees getting a four per cent increase when inflation is two per cent and most residents are not getting four per cent increases and their

federal and provincial counterparts are getting zero per cent or facing layoffs? Where is the accountability for whoever negotiated this contract? Is this the “good value for dollar” the mayor boasts of? Finally it was kind of the mayor to spin this as not burdening future generations, which of course is a falsehood because a bloated bureaucracy supported by high taxes will burden future generations to come and shows little regard for the current generation of taxpayers. I am left with the impression current council treats Burnaby as their own personal fiefdom, and with no opposition on council this is a recipe for poor governance, no oversight and nobody to challenge the status quo. All of this makes me very glad we are finally getting a municipal auditor general. Lawrence Kumar, Burnaby
Housing in high need Dear Editor:
I’m thrilled to hear that the Portland Hotel Society is attempting to convert the
401 Motel into transitional housing for those in need. The high cost of housing in Burnaby and the rest of the Lower Mainland has made it next to impossible for people who have fallen on hard times to get back on their feet, and the lack of pure rental stock or subsidized housing has exacerbated those problems. This has led to higher rates of poverty in the area and an increasing cost of living that’s making it difficult for families to afford the basics of survival. The increase in food bank usage is just another symptom of high housing costs and the lack of affordable housing, even if it’s transitional like the 401 Motor Inn proposal would be. Everyone agrees that much more needs to be done to provide for the housing needs of people in the city, and that transitional housing would seem to be the best choice at the current time. I realize it’s a short timeframe, but I urge council to see whether converting the motel could be done, even if the information is simply used as a means of determining how to make similar zoning and usage changes in other locations throughout the city.
and pseudo-financial advisors, when the CMHC stops backing every highrisk borrower that comes calling (the corporation, run by a board with blatant ties to the real estate industry, will soon sport a much shorter leash), when newly introduced mortgage restrictions have sliced and diced the number of potential buyers, when interest rates have jumped from their emergency lows, when local TV producers stop airing dubious realtor PR stunts (helicopters purportedly loaded with offshore realtors, trumped-up condo lineups, marketers posing as investors) as hard news, when the market is flooded with the homes of bailing baby-boomers seeking to fund their retirements, when the imaginary tidal wave of incoming Chinese is revealed as the mere speculative ripple it has been, when fatigued owners realize killer home payments devastate every other aspect of their family’s lives, and most importantly, when the mania dies (manias always
die) and when real estate ownership is no longer the Holy Grail, there will be nothing left but you and decades of onerous payments on a crashing asset. You will wonder what could have possessed you to overpay by 50 or 100 per cent for a creaking “old timer” in a lousy neighbourhood or a “new” slapped-up-in-a-month-byhandymen townhouse in a future ghetto. Your realtor will not be there to console you, your lender will not hand you free money to extricate yourself. So … what do you do? If you bought near the peak (roughly mid2011), and particularly if you’re feeling the strain already, contemplate selling – before the downward spiral picks up steam. If you’ve so far resisted the siren song, continue to resist. Instead, rent. Renting gets a bad name in a transitory environment where even pizza delivery guys contemplate $300,000 condos, but remember: Renters are immune to exploding zeppelins. Renters are

free to invest the money they saved by not buying. Renters do not surrender thousands per annum on property taxes, repairs, renovations, city utility bills and burdensome monthly maintenance fees. And renters can move without enduring the cost and hardship of selling. Your realtor will tell you “Renting is throwing your money away.” You can tell him he’s a liar.

Travel agency closes A Burnaby travel agency and wholesaler, located at 6927 Kingsway, closed its doors as of May 11, according to Consumer Protection B.C. The business is listed as Shilla Tours and Travel Ltd. in Consumer Protection B.C.’s records. The business was listed for sale for $27,000 on a real estate website in April. Consumer Protection B.C., a not-forprofit corporation, put out the press release regarding the closure to alert consumers who might be impacted. Travellers who made arrangements with Shilla Tours but have not received their travel documents should contact Consumer Protection B.C., as they may be eligible to claim against the Travel Assurance Fund.
“The Travel Assurance Fund provides compensation for consumers who did not receive the contracted travel services they purchased through a B.C. licensed travel agent,” the release stated. The fund has paid out more than $146,000 and assisted more than 60 consumers this year.

Teeth: Lobbying health ministry for help continued from page 1
belongs to the mint family, in a Vancouver shop. When smoked, it can produce a high that may include hallucinations and out-of-body experiences, though it may also produce little more than a slight “buzz” depending on the person and situation. In Canada, it meets the definition of a natural health product but hasn’t been technically authorized for sale. Though the federal government has said it will move to make the product illegal, it isn’t currently, and it’s readily available at smoke shops and online. A Health Canada survey in 2010 suggested that nearly seven per cent of Canadian youth had tried salvia at one time or another. Walde said she had previously tried it a couple times with friends but, one day while home alone and feeling down, she decided to have some. She remembers feeling an overwhelming anxiety and walking to the bathroom – and then she woke up, on the sidewalk three floors down from her apartment window. “It was terrible. I was just screaming for help, and I knew right away what had happened,” she recalls. She was taken to hospital, where scans showed that her jaw was “basically dust.” She required a tracheostomy to allow her to breathe and had to leave school and move back in with her family while she recovered. Walde acknowledges it was her decision to take salvia but says it’s not representative of who she is today. “Compared to who I was two years ago, I feel like I’ve become a lot more responsible – I’m interested in what’s going on in the world, and what’s happening in society. And I need some help to get things back on track,” she said. Walde said her family has been “wonderful,” helping to organize fundraisers in her hometown of Chilliwack to help with some of the initial costs associated with various procedures. “I don’t come from a very wealthy family, but they’ve been very, very supportive,” she said. Now she’s hoping to find a little support from the Ministry of Health.
Contributed MRI/burnaby now
Damage: Cassie Walde’s jaw was crushed on one side after a fall that left her in hospital for weeks.
She recently wrote to the ministry, asking for her case to be reviewed in hopes that at least a portion of the “cosmetic” dental work could be covered under medical expenses. “I would just hope that they could assist a little bit – or even acknowledge my argument, and spend a little bit more time on (my case).” She said the letter she received back seemed more like a form response, outlining the ministry’s inability to cover dental work. “It just didn’t even touch on my argument that the attention I need should be considered a medical one,” she said, adding that it felt like the letter hadn’t even been read by the health minister himself. A Ministry of Health spokesperson confirmed to the NOW that a letter had been received from Walde and that a response had been sent. They didn’t comment on her individual case but did send the NOW a statement about MSP coverage as it relates to dental work. “The Canada Health Act directs the provinces to pay for health care services when an insured medical service is provided by a licensed physician. The Act also directs the provinces on what dental services the provinces should pay for; however, this coverage may only be provided under very limited circumstances,” the ministry wrote to the NOW. “In accordance with the Canada Health Act, the Medical Services Plan (MSP) provides cover-
age for oral surgery procedures which may include extractions, jaw deformities and facial trauma when surgery is medically necessary. “MSP is unable to extend our provincial medical coverage to pay for general dental procedures such as extractions, restorations, dentures, appliances or prostheses and oral surgery that may be done in a private dental facility. If a medical condition requires implants and the patient must be admitted to the hospital, then the MSP would cover the surgical placement fee and the general anaesthetic. However, the cost of the metal implant itself and any denture that is to be attached at a later date is always the responsibility of the patient. Dental implants are not covered by the Medical Services Plan of British Columbia or any other province.” MLA Kathy Corrigan told the NOW that she’d like to see the case re-examined, noting that without the new teeth implants, Walde will need to have bone grafts redone over and over, which will cost the system money over time. “I’m not suggesting that dental care should be universally covered, but I do think you need to look at exceptional circumstances,” she said. “You do have to have protocols in place and you have to have rules, and there is always an area that is grey and, to me, this falls into that area.” As to the events that led to the injury, Corrigan said that shouldn’t limit the care that Walde qualifies for, noting that people who are injured in all sorts of situations receive medical care. “I think you have to separate what kind of care someone needs from the circumstances of how they got there – that doesn’t change their right to the care,” she said. Corrigan said the unique nature of the ongoing medical complications in Walde’s case indicates that there may be some room to have her treatment funded, at least in part. “I’d be objective about what is the appropriate and effective thing to do. … It just doesn’t make any sense to … pay more later, over and over again.”

School district head retiring Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
The head of Burnaby’s school district has announced he is retiring this summer. At the last school board meeting on May 8, superintendent Claudio Morelli announced he was planning to retire this August. “I feel actually very privileged,” Morelli said. “I’ve been very fortunate to have worked with so many dedicated and outstanding people.” Morelli said he still wants to be involved in public education, he’s just not sure in what capacity. “I spent 34 years in public education, and I am a strong believer in it.

“Nothing was done,” he said. Each of the jury’s recommendations are important, Chouhan added. “I hope the government will accept them and implement them. Some are very critical and they should be done right away,” he said. Chouhan attended most of the seven-day inquest. “It was really hard to sit with the

An animal rescue group saved a cat and her litter of kittens from a construction site at Burnaby’s Metropolis at Metrotown recently. Mall security called the Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA) on Friday about the cats because they kept triggering the site’s security alarm at night. “The momma cat was being a good mother and found a safe haven away from Vancouver’s huge coyote population,” said Maria Sorosky, a cat trapper with the association. “But a construction site is still a dangerous place for kittens. It’s lucky the kind people who work there found them.” The construction site was heavily protected by high, locked wooden fences, so it is unclear as to how the pregnant cat found her way in. “It’s sad that in the malls across Canada and North America there are pet stores that have their kittens shipped in from kitten mills, while out here outside there are homeless cats and kittens left unwanted and alone,” Sorosky said in a press release. Sorosky set a trap on Friday, May 11 and was in possession of the mother cat the next day. Sorosky suspects the cat was not feral and had belonged to someone as she was rather trusting. “She was obviously someone’s pet who had been lost or abandoned and had not been spayed,” she said. The kittens, however, were lured and caught by staff at the site, who played with them until Sorosky

The association is taking care of the mother cat, who will be spayed, and her litter, as they await adoption. One kitten has already been adopted by a mall security guard. “It is important we educate the public to always spay or neuter their pets,” said Karen Duncan, associa-
tion founder. “It is also imperative to avoid supporting the inhumane practice of kitten mills and always adopt. Never buy from a pet store unless you know exactly where their kittens come from.” VOKRA is a no-kill animal rescue association run by volunteers. Go to www.vokra.ca for more information.

What legacy has the Second World War internment of Japanese Canadians left in contemporary society? That thought-provoking question is the subject of a new art exhibition at the Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre. YO-IN Reverberation had its opening reception last night (May 24) and continues at the centre until Aug. 25. It features two groups of artists: the nisei (second generation) who lived through the internment as children, and those born in Canada after the war who are descended from those who experienced internment first-hand. In the first group are artists Shizuye Takashima, Kazuo Nakamura, Aiko Suzuki and Nobui Kubota. In the second are Cindy Mochizuki, Emma Nishimura, Louise Noguchi and Jon Sasaki. A press release notes that the artists’ work addresses themes of memory, place and identity.
The exhibition is cocurated by Beth Carter and Sherri Kajiwara. Check out www.nikkei place.org or call 604-7777000 for information.
Be fresh, safe, secure and bug-free in clean, contemporary style!
The Nikkei Centre is also offering another look at the internment of Japanese Canadians – this one in literary form. Author Susan Aihoshi will be on hand at the centre on Saturday, May 26 at 3 p.m. to read from her book, Torn Apart – The Internment Diary of Mary Kobayashi. Aihoshi draws from the experiences of her own family as she tells the story through the eyes of young Mary. The book is aimed at young readers aged eight to 12, but the presentation is geared for all ages, and families are encouraged to attend. Books will be available for signing and purchase.

h, the thrill of a fresh new pack of pencils, a fancy new lunch kit, a full package of lined paper. There’s something intoxicating about new school supplies, isn’t there? (If your answer is: “no, there’s something intoxicating about a nice bottle of red wine,” you’re right – but bear with me.) School supplies are symbolic of a fresh start – pencils that haven’t made any mistakes yet, crayons that may yet produce amazing works of art, backpacks that might trek off to after-school adventures with new friends. I think I’ve always been partial to the concept of the fresh start offered by the start of a new school year – even to this day, I tend to buy agendas that run for a school year, September to August, rather than a calendar year from January to December. Come September, the
weather is changing from the bright, sunny days of August to the cool freshness of autumn, and the holiday season is right around the corner with Thanksgiving, Halloween and Christmas just beyond. This coming September, there will be a fresh start of a momentous kind in my family: our oldest will be heading off to kindergarten. For a new-school-supply junkie like myself, who also really, really enjoyed elementary school, it’s a heady time. Our “baby” is heading off into a great new adventure that marks the start of a brand new phase of life. And, oh, he’s so excited. When we got the chance recently to go to the school for a “welcome to kindergarten” event, our little guy was on pins and needles all week waiting for the big day. All the way to the school, his face was aglow with an ear-to-ear grin. As we walked up to the door, he was skipping ahead of me, eager to get inside. His eyes were big, and as he took in the books, the little caterpillars in an aquarium, the art on the

In search of Burnaby babies
Empathy program needs babies born in summer time Christina Myers staff reporter
Earlier this week, more than 20 teachers gathered at Schou Education Centre in Burnaby to mark the end of another successful year – and only a few of them can walk or talk. These “teachers” were the 22 babies who worked with more than 500 children in Burnaby schools since last fall through the Roots of Empathy program. The celebration on Wednesday brought together the babies, parents and educators from around the district who helped facilitate the visits to local schools. But as this year’s program draws to a close, organizers are already looking ahead to next year. In particular, the program needs families with babies being born this summer, in June, July or August.
Roots of Empathy is an award-winning program that provides empathybased programming for children. Babies are matched up with an elementary classroom and then, with a parent, visit that classroom roughly once a month throughout the year. Children get the chance to learn about a baby’s needs, their development and to interact with the baby by singing and talking, guided by a trained Roots of Empathy instructor. The Roots program, along with its younger-age program Seeds of Empathy, have both been shown to reduce levels of aggression among children and raise social and emotional competence and increasing empathy. The program, which was first launched in 2006, is currently delivered to school children from kindergarten to Grade 8 across Canada, in Seattle, New Zealand, the Isle of Man, Northern Ireland, the
Stop burns B.C. Children’s Hospital is hoping to reduce the number of burn injuries with a new program. The Too Hot for Tots! program is aimed at educating parents about burn hazards and ways to effectively “burn proof” the home. Each year, the hospital treates as many as 130 young children with burns, most caused by hot liquids, hot tap water and hot surfaces – not fire, as most parents believe. The majority of burns result from children pulling on a cord or reaching for something on a countertop and accidentally spilling hot liquid on their face, chest or arms, or while playing alone in a bathtub. “A child’s skin is four times thinner than an adult’s,” says Dr. Cindy Verchere, director of the B.C. Children’s burn unit. “Heat moves very quickly to the lower layers and can cause significant damage in a matter of seconds.” The Too Hot For Tots! video and program material can be found online at www.bcchildrens.ca/saf estart.
Republic of Ireland and Scotland. In Burnaby, it’s been running at local schools for more than a decade. Burnaby families with babies being born this summer in June, July or August can apply to take part in the

Summer activities = happy kids Are you looking forward to summer break? Chances are your child will say a deﬁnitive “yes!”. But if you’re a parent stuck in town with no plans and a limited budget, ﬁguring out how to entertain the little ones can be exhausting. Here are some ideas to kick-start your summer plans: GO FLY A KITE Literally.Take the kids and go ﬂy a kite. It doesn’t cost a lot and will bring you hours of fun. GO ON A MINI ROAD TRIP Visit a town that you’re not familiar with and spend time walking around, taking in the sights, dining at local eateries, and meeting the people. It will be a refreshing change of pace and scenery for your family. VISIT YOUR LIBRARY Your local library is a great resource for free family entertainment. Pick up a book to learn some arts and crafts, research fun recipes, borrow kid-friendly DVDs, or check if the library is running any special summer break programs. KID SWAP If your friend’s kids are also stuck in town, arrange to watch them along with your own kids and then swap the next day. That way, you can get some much needed rest and relaxation. It’s called summer break for a reason. BOARD GAMES Remember what those are? Playing a board game is a great way to spend time together as a family and have face time. If your collection doesn’t intrigue your kids, purchase a new game that everyone agrees on. GIVE TO A GOOD CAUSE Serve others at a local food bank, soup kitchen, or seniors home.You can also donate to an organization like Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (www.ccfcanada.ca), and help provide children in developing countries with nutritious food, clean water, and medicine. Before you know it, summer will be over and you’ll have some happy kids to show for it. – www.newscanada.com

Harnessing power of the written word I
had a chance to attend the school district’s annual WORDS ceremony on May 17, a celebration of Burnaby’s best student scribes. Since the Burnaby NOW is one of the sponsors, I – along with other sponsors, school trustees and district staff – had the honour of passing out awards to the next generation of writers on stage at the Michael J. Fox Theatre. As part of the yearly tradition, the district publishes selected samples of student writing in an anthology. Published author David Mushens, vice-principal at Burnaby North, co-hosted the event. Edmonds principal David Starr, also a published author, read from his book From Bombs to Books, which chronicles the incredible tales of refugee families he’s come to know while working in Burnaby schools. Eleanor Hoskins, a Grade 12 Burnaby North student,
students read their pieces on stage, with proud parents hooting and hollering in the audience. To read the anthology, go to the district’s website at www. sd41.bc.ca. There are also copies available at all local library branches.
The Riverview Preservation Society is meeting this Sunday, May 27 at the McGill library branch from 1:15 to 3 p.m. The group wants to keep all of the Riverview lands in Coquitlam for people with mental illness and addictions. Everyone is welcome to attend. The library branch is at 4595 Albert St.

gave a very impressive speech. Hoskins has been published in the anthology since she submitted her first poem in Grade 3. “Being a good writer, like being good at anything else, takes a lot of practice,” Hoskins said. “And to be perfectly honest, I’ve struggled a lot with that. Practice involves writing whenever you can, wherever you are, about whatever you can, even when you really don’t feel like it. Sometimes you have to let yourself be genuinely, horrendously bad at writing and accept it as long as it helps you figure out how to be good.” Students in the ACEIT program at Burnaby Central provided food for the reception that followed, and I bumped into another local author, Masako Fukawa, wife of Stanley Fukawa, whom we recently featured in a story on the provincial government’s apology to Japanese Canadians for the internment during the Second World War. Masako has published books on the history of Japanese-Canadian fishermen in B.C. But the best part of the evening was hearing the

Students provide food for classmates in need Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Students at Burnaby South Secondary are good at raising money for causes abroad, but one particular group has decided to address the needs of their fellow classmates by helping out with the school’s food program. “It was really lacking,” says Grade 12 student Amon Kale. “We needed to fill that void.” Filling the void meant raising money for food to fill the bellies of Burnaby South students, something Kale set about doing by helping form the school’s We Council. “I had wanted to do something for a while,” Kale says. “There are a lot of groups (in the school) that do that kind of work, but nothing geared towards the school itself.” The We Council helps with humanitarian causes abroad. Kale says students have sponsored a school in Africa and raised money for Haiti and Indonesia after they were hit by earthquakes. And while it’s admirable to help people overseas, Kale would like to address local needs as well. ���Burnaby has an incredibly high poverty rate. It’s actually shocking how high it is,” he says. “So I really felt there was a need toward this. I just couldn’t let that stand.” Every year, the We Council raises money to buy grocery store food vouchers, which a school staff member passes out to roughly 15 students in need. Most of the students receiving vouchers are in the district’s program for young parents. The We Council collects money from staff, students and teachers, and spreads the word by creating announcements and videos to
broadcast at the school. Burnaby South runs a breakfast and lunch program, which provides meals to roughly 45 students each day. The We Council helps by supplementing that program with the food vouchers, which help students when school is not in session or teen moms need groceries. With the vouchers, students can pick what they want from the grocery store. “It gives them a lot more freedom,” Kale says. The key idea for Kale is that the students are addressing need in their own community, a need a lot of people don’t know about, he says. “If we can help those farther away from us, we can definitely help those closest to us,” he says, adding kids who eat properly tend to perform better at school. “I think we have an impact in that regard,” he says. Burnaby South staff member Mala Kumar was raising questions about sending money off to Africa, when local kids were going hungry. She helps by passing out the food vouchers to students. “I think it’s awesome. No one knows who’s who, only the staff members,” she says. “It works out really well.” Principal Gordon Li says the program is fantastic. “It does two things: it helps the students in need, but on the other hand, it really empowers students to know they can help others in the community,” Li says. “That’s the beauty of We Council.” To donate to the campaign, call Burnaby South Secondary, 604-664-8560, and say you want to donate to the Rebels Food Program.

MAY IS CNIB VISION HEALTH MONTH
Seeing beyond vision loss Barbara knows ﬁrst-hand how valuable these services are to her granddaughter and others who are living with a loss of sight.
BY TAMARA TEDESCO
Barbara Korsvoll, of Nanoose Bay is enjoying an adventurous retirement. She loves to golf, goes to the sunny south for the winter, and likes to ride a motorcycle with her husband. If there’s one thing she knows, it’s the importance of living life to the fullest. That, Barbara says, is why she recently began supporting CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind), a charity that gives Canadians who are blind or partially sighted this very opportunity every day.
Although Barbara has a granddaughter who is blind, she says she just realized the extent of the programs CNIB provides. “Funny enough, I was reading something about CNIB in the paper,” Barbara explains. “I found out quite a few things I didn’t know before, like how CNIB relies so much on donations to run its programs. I always just assumed that CNIB gets most of its funding from the government, and it turns out it’s the other way around” she says.
She’s right. In British Columbia, CNIB receives less than 10 % of its funding from provincial government sources, and the charity relies heavily on private donations to provide specialized programs and services at no cost to more than 18,000 clients living with vision loss in the BC-Yukon region.
It’s because of the help CNIB has given her granddaughter and her family that Barbara has decided to give back to the organization. She is now a proud member of CNIB’s Partners in Vision program, through which she donates $25 each month to help other British Columbians who are blind or partially sighted. Designed to support the ever-increasing demand for CNIB services, Partners in Vision allows people like Barbara to make a lasting difference in the lives of people with vision loss right in their own community.

“CNIB did such a good job of teaching her to do everything from cooking to using a special computer to getting around on public transit that when she announced that she was moving to the big city by herself, I knew that she would be just ﬁne” Barbara says. “There was never anything I thought she couldn’t do.”
During Vision Health Month, CNIB is challenging British Columbians to take care of their eyes so that we can eliminate avoidable sight loss.

Eat healthy and get ﬁt Diets high in fats and low in nutrients heighten the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of vision loss.

EMERSON. BY MOSAIC. Driven by design, MOSAIC has hit the mark in West Coquitlam’s Evergreen Heights. After 230 savvy buyers snapped up MOSAIC’s neighbouring apartments at FOSTER and GEORGIA in a matter of months, MOSAIC is making its ﬁnal apartment building in Evergreen Heights available to the public on Saturday, June 2. Similar to demand for other transit-oriented communities, EMERSON is expected to sell quickly. EMERSON is 8 minutes to SFU, a short drive to Lougheed Town Centre, and steps to the Evergreen Line. With the Evergreen Line connecting Coquitlam to the rest of the Tri-Cities, Burnaby and downtown Vancouver, “It’s no wonder the response has been so strong - people want to get in before the crowd,” says MOSAIC’s Geoff Duyker. EMERSON combines timeless Georgian architecture with modern interiors. Details like whitebrick stitching and black metalwork on redbrick exteriors and high design kitchens with open shelving and under-cabinet spice ledges are a part of EMERSON’s appeal, along with one-of-a-kind’s like the gracefully arched lobby canopy and antique chandelier that Geoff describes as “absolutely exquisite”. –REAL ESTATE–
To learn more about EMERSON’s one and two bedroom homes, call 604.936.9300 or visit mosaichomes.com. There is also an opportunity to purchase before the public at EMERSON’s Insider’s Event. Ask sales staff to ﬁnd out how this works.

Don’t lose sleep over unexpected repair CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi
Dear Tom and Ray: We recently purchased a 2003 Honda Civic with 80,000 miles. The previous owner was very fastidious about maintenance and had replaced several major items within the past six months, including the timing belt, for which he provided us receipts. My husband was driving the car recently and accelerated to pass another vehicle, when the Civic suddenly lost power and some of the dash-
board lights came on. Fortunately, he was close by and was able to limp home at a slow speed. We had the car towed to the repair shop that we have used previously, and they diagnosed the problem as a burned-out alternator and PCM. The mechanic told us that the problem was caused because when the timing belt was replaced, the alternator was left loose and not grounded. He said that when there was a power surge during acceleration, both the alternator and the PCM burned out. The repair bill was $1,200. We contacted the shop where the timing-belt repair was done, and the owner denies that his work would have caused this damage. He said our repair shop
sold us unnecessary parts and said the alternator is not touched when a timing belt is installed. He also pointed to the five-month span between the time the work was done by his shop and the alternator problem and suggested that any problems with the repair would have shown up sooner. We don’t know what to believe. What do you think? – Kathi TOM: Well, first of all, you have our condolences, Kathi. The PCM is the powertrain control module, also known as “the computer.” That’s why this repair was so expensive. RAY: Is the story possible? Can an ungrounded alternator cause this damage? I’m sure it can. I’ve

never wanted to find out, so I’ve always made sure my customers’ alternators are grounded when they leave the shop. But inadequate grounding can potentially cause a host of electrical problems. TOM: But can you attribute it directly to the guy who changed the timing belt five months ago? That’s almost impossible, at this point. RAY: He had to loosen the alternator to remove the car’s other belts in order to get at the timing belt. So it’s possible he neglected to tighten the pinch bolt that grounds the alternator to the bracket through its housing. TOM: But then why did it take five months to fail? I suppose it could have loosened up more and
more over time until it was not grounded at all, but on a 10-year-old car, one of those could just as easily have failed on its own for another reason. RAY: Or it’s possible that the guys at your shop were the ones who were mistaken, or dishonest. TOM: I sympathize with you guys. You just got what is supposed to be a reliable car, and you immediately had an expensive and unexpected repair. But that sometimes happens with cars, even when it’s nobody’s fault. RAY: So my advice would be to forget about it and move on with your lives. I don’t think you’ll ever know for certain whether this was somebody’s fault unless you engage CSI:

It can be at the most difficult of times that the true meaning of team shines through. The Douglas College Royals women’s softball team learned the truth of that message following a tragic loss to a member of the squad just weeks before the most important outing in the program’s two-year existence. Freshman pitcher/ infielder Kyla Myre, the Royals’ top player, lost her only brother on May 3. Her father, an assistant coach with the Royals, and her mother, who also helped out in the Douglas dugout, found strength to cope with their loss in the softball community. Through the most difficult time imaginable, Kyla’s family pulled through, laying 27-yearold Adam to rest, while also making program history by earning a spot in the semifinals before finishing fifth in the team’s first-ever appearance at the Northwest Community College regional playoff last weekend. “It made a difference that her dad was there,” said Douglas head coach Gord Collings. “He was more emotional about it. When the kids gave him sympathy, he broke down in tears.” Kyla handled the loss in a more introspective way. “But when it came to putting it out there, she just gave it. When she was out there, we were all in synch and it was true – in a weird way – it brought everyone

Letting go: Douglas College pitcher Kyla Myre found emotional support in softball to get her and her family through a difficult time and into the program’s history book. together,” Collings said. Kyla had a premonition that something was wrong when her father failed to show up for a regular Thursday practice and could not be reached by phone. When Kyla got home she learned the news that her brother had suddenly and unexpectedly passed
away. “I think softball was a huge outlet for us,” said Kyla. “My brother always told us to ‘Keep going, keep going, never look back,’ so this is what we turned to to keep going in every aspect of our sporting lives.” Last year at approximately this same time,
Kyla also lost her grandfather. She kept his memory alive by pitching one of her best games of the season the very next day. “I was just trying to embrace that and honour his memory through softball,” she said. Last weekend, Kyla did the same thing for Adam
with a stirring performance at the regional playoffs. Kyla, who finished second in the conference with 206 strikeouts, went the distance in two opening day upset wins, including a 5-3 victory over previously unbeaten No. 2ranked Bellevue College Softball Page 44
Burnaby teen tops Zone 4 junior leaderboard Tom Berridge
Alan Tolusso of Burnaby is off to a torrid start on the Zone 4 junior golf tour. The St. Thomas More Collegiate student placed second at the Vancouver Club junior invitational last weekend following a threeman playoff. Tolusso, who has seven top-10 finishes in seven Zone 4 junior
matches so far this season, tied atop the leaderboard with Roy Kang of North Vancouver and playoff winner Trevor Yu of Vancouver. All three boys shot even-par 72s in the 18-hole match played last Saturday. Yu won the playoff. Alex François of Burnaby was a stroke behind in a three-way tie for fourth place at 73. The runner-up finish was
Tolusso’s fourth top-three placing of the season, which included wins in the opening match at the Capilano Golf and Country Club and last week in Squamish. Tolusso also finished third at the Point Grey invite last month. He was fourth at the Shaughnessy junior on May 5. Tolusso currently tops the TaylorMade junior tour with a 72.43 scoring average, just plus0.57 over par.

The junior tour continues this weekend with a pair of stops at Seymour in North Vancouver on Saturday followed by the Beach Grove junior in Delta on Sunday. The junior tour winds up in Richmond on June 2 with an 18hole event at Mayfair Lakes. The Zone 4 junior championship follows with a two-day final, beginning June 13 in Squamish and finishing up on June 17 at Quilchena.
The Burnaby Lakers moved to .500 in the Western Lacrosse Association with a 6-4 win in overtime over last year’s Mann Cup finalist Langley Thunder on Wednesday. Mike Brascia scored the game-winner unassisted at 7:22 of OT with his second transition goal of the early season. Shaun Dhaliwal potted an insurance marker into an empty net in the final seconds of the 10-minute extra time. Dan Lewis got the win in his first start in goal, turning aside 28 shots at the Langley Events Centre. At the other end of the floor, former Burnaby junior Brodie MacDonald had a strong night, earning the game’s first star with a 47-save performance. Burnaby stars Matt Quinton and Dane Stevens, with his first of two goals in the game, scored early to get the visitors off to a 2-0 start. Scott Tinning also tallied to keep the Lakers ahead 3-2 after 20 minutes. But Burnaby’s power play went one-for-11 in the game and failed to take advantage of seven straight Langley penalties from the seventh minute on in the first period, surrendering a pair of shorthanded goals in the process that kept the score close. “Lewis looked good, our defence looked like we wanted it to look and our transition had 10 or 12 chances. But our power play needs work,” said Burnaby head coach Bob Johnston. “Over two years, the trend we saw was we were a badly outplayed team, but in the last two games we’ve outshot both teams and that’s a real positive,” added Johnston. Burnaby is in Maple Ridge this Sunday for a date with the Burrards. Game time is 6:45 p.m.

Softball: ‘He definitely is my hero’ continued from page 41
last Friday to reach the semifinals. Kyla threw more than 200 pitches in the back-toback wins, while striking out a total of 23 batters, including the final out against Bellevue. “You just got the sense (the team) was playing for her. They played better for her,” said Collings. “You feel it. … They were in sync even in the games we lost, we didn’t get the hits, but everyone was supporting each other.” Kyla found support too, but from an unexpected source. When Kyla is in the pitching circle, she is usually oblivious to her external surroundings. “I kind of tune everything out,” she said. But last weekend, Adam was with her. “I do think so,” Kyla added. “I’m not particularly spiritual, but there were moments I was thinking (of him), ‘OK, you have to give

Your curiosity will grow over the 13 months ahead (powerfully during this June) and introduce you to some new, simpatico people and ideas.

Careful – yield to no temptations, no greed, no unrealistic promises, before September. Your romantic urge is still powerful (to early July – but especially this Monday/Tuesday) so you might attract a sensual affair.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Retreat, lie low, contemplate and plan. You’ve entered a month of sweet solitude. This is a great time to meditate, to seek counselling, whether in spiritual, ﬁnancial, psychological or other areas. (These trends – therapy, counselling and self-knowing – will expand and bless you for 13 months.) Be restful; take power naps. Eat and dress sensibly. Chase money Sunday. Short trips, communications and details ﬁll Monday/Tuesday. Heading for home or taking a “security” stance raises opposition Wednesday (but go ahead anyway) and succeeds Thursday. Romantic notions late week? Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Wishes can and do come true. And they will, this week and the next few – and for 13 months! Right now, your “most likely to come true” desires centre on career/ambition, and casual but sweet friendship. By late June onward your wishes will tend to swirl around social joys, light romance, heavy romance, creative projects, speculative risks and travel – and at least one of these will come true – probably two, possibly four! (But remember, don’t let wishes or socializing govern your life before September.) You shine Sunday. Chase money Monday/ Tuesday. Home, relax, late week. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The weeks (and 13 months) ahead boost your career and worldly standing. This might come about through real estate, a move to another neighbourhood, or from the ending of a job role that holds you back. Be ambitious, strive for success, but, before September, don’t engage in anything underhanded, don’t cut corners or heedlessly push higher-ups for recognition. Rest, lie low Sunday. Your energy and clout return strongly Monday/Tuesday. Tuesday night’s lucky. Protect your money Wednesday; chase more Thursday. Errands, talk, travel, details and paperwork succeed Friday/ Saturday.

May 27 - June 2, 2012
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The month ahead emphasizes legal, far travel, international, cultural, intellectual, educational and publishing projects, idealism, understanding and love. These are sweet and successful now, will grow increasingly so through June 2013. (But until September, be careful – don’t push these areas, nor seek something for nothing from them. Otherwise, you could harvest expansion rather than luck – e.g., a lawsuit could expand rather than end successfully.) Flirtations Sunday. Retreat, rest, plan Monday/Tuesday. Conquer with force Wednesday, with persuasion Thursday. Money, late week. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The weeks ahead emphasize mysteries, secrets, research or detective work, investment or other ﬁnancial actions, sexual desires, commitments and consequences, deep health and lifestyle changes. These are mildly lucky now, then extremely lucky September to June 2013. Beware investments or major changes before September: until then, pitfalls exist along this jungle trail (all of them disguised by the thatched grass of pride, temptation or impatience). Humility, alertness keep you safe. Your wishes and joy rise Monday/Tuesday. Avoid government, head ofﬁce disagreements Wednesday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your relations with everyone have grown affectionate, or at least gracious. That continues, and deepens – from mid-June onward, for a year, relationships will expand, grow luckier, brighter. Some of you single Sages will meet your life partner. Remember, be cautious until September – to then, you might be wise to retain a healthy independence. (E.g., ﬂirt but don’t commit. Well, OK, I know that’s unlike you – so just be honest. Don’t devalue your freedom – until September onward!) Sunday’s mellow, wise. Be ambitious Monday/Tuesday. Wishes, social joys midweek. Rest, Friday.
Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Protect your health: eat, dress sensibly for one year. Expect a huge pile of work – accompanied by affectionate helpers all June and July – and an even bigger mound in the months following. Both are lucky, as they can bring solid ﬁnancial recompense. (But through August beware committing your whole life to labour, and don’t buy machinery.) Sunday holds mysteries, urges, ﬁnances. Wisdom and gentle love ﬁll Monday/Tuesday. Your career scene is action-packedWednesday,productive, even lucky, Thursday. Optimism, social delights and a party mood comes Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Sunday features relationships.Life’s secrets,sexual urges,subconscious hunches and ﬁnancial events arise Monday (be only mildly cautious) and Tuesday, when major luck can speed your progress in these zones. Disagreement might mar legal, moral, intellectual, far travel, cultural and communications areas Wednesday, but lucky outcomes seem destined this night to Thursday noon. Be ambitious Friday/Saturday – luck rides with you. Finalize any realty deals now or next week. You are swiftly entering a “love zone” – a Gemini might be involved. It’s big, but it’s best after August. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Focus on home, children, nurturing, nature, garden, soul, stomach, security, foundations (in business, too) and retirement. These zones demand attention now, are sweet and mildly lucky, and will grow powerfully lucky mid-June to mid-2013. (But be cautious through August: don’t let impatience, temptation or hard feelings motivate you.) Do chores Sunday. Relationships, exciting meetings, challenges and opportunities arise Monday/Tuesday: all’s well that ends luckily (Tuesday)! Be cautious with ﬁnances, sexual situations midweek. Gentle love, peace, come Friday/Saturday. email@example.com • Reading: 604-727-3673
