Manhunt ends in shootout Alfie Lau
Mere hours after the Burnaby RCMP issued an urgent warning about him, Angus David Mitchell was shot and killed in Maple Ridge on Wednesday. At an RCMP press conference in Maple Ridge on Wednesday afternoon, Supt. Dave Walsh said the suspect was shot shortly before noon, but would not release more details about the shooting, which is now under investigation by Vancouver police. Police had received a tip from the public that Mitchell’s 1994 green Ford Aerostar First reported @ van was BurnabyNow.com p a r k e d near 216th Street and 128th Avenue in Ridge Meadows. According to The Vancouver Sun, more than a dozen RCMP officers approached the green van on the isolated road and tried to talk Mitchell out of the van. He exited the van, but there was an exchange of gunfire with police. No RCMP officers were injured. The 26-year-old man was wanted for attempted murder in a Tuesday night shooting where a 51-year-old Burnaby man was shot in front of his home located in the 4400 block of Gilpin Crescent. The man had been out shopping for groceries and was confronted by Mitchell. The victim, a former landlord of Mitchell’s, survived the shooting but is in hospital in serious condition. According to Insp. Tim Shields of the Burnaby RCMP, Mitchell had been evicted from a Vancouver home six Police Page 8

Room without a view? Sandra Watling and Jane Gott, residents of a condo complex across from Central Park, are worried a 37-storey building will replace this view.
Residents rally against ‘Titanic’ Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Residents of the Parkcrest condo complex across from Central Park in Burnaby are worried a “Titanic” of a building may be moving in next door. Polygon Developments has submitted a rezoning application for a 37-storey apartment tower, with three-storey townhouses, near the nine-storey Arthur Ericksondesigned Parkcrest. Many residents moved into the building because of its green focus – many of the units have large, landscaped terraces – and because it is located so near the park, Sandra Watling, vice-president of the
building’s strata council, said. Watling has lived in the building for 20 years and said construction around it has increased in recent years, with Jewel I and II highrises being built nearby, and waterworks construction along Patterson Avenue. “Everything is going up around us,” she said. “We don’t mind if it’s the same height, but we don’t want 37 storeys.” The Polygon development would also take out half of the alley behind the building, she said, and would bring more people and vehicles to the area. “It’s absolutely crazy to put that up there,” Watling said. “It’s not a good fit.” Parkcrest has a large terrace for resi-

dents’ use on the eighth floor, which looks out on the park and the North Shore mountains, she said. But with the new development, the view will be blocked. And the nearby buildings, including Parkcrest, will also lose a great deal of privacy,” she added. “They’ll be able to see us eating our toast,” Watling said. Jane Gott, also with the strata council, attended the May 29 public hearing on the rezoning application, and brought the residents’ concerns to council. Polygon representatives were on hand, as well as residents and strata members from three buildings in the area, including

Coyotes on the move after den boarded up Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
A litter of coyote pups was accidently trapped on Tuesday after the school district boarded up a den the mother had made beneath a portable at Marlborough Elementary. Burnaby resident Bruce Causier caught the whole thing on film. “The school workers had sealed the coyote puppies underneath the portable. The mother was all stressed out, circling around the portable,” Causier said, adding people had gathered to watch, including kids. “There were actually kids going up and kicking the boards. I had to approach the parents there and tell them they were putting their kids in a dangerous situation.” The recently discovered den was boarded up as a safety measure, but the pups were still inside, separated from their mother. A concerned resident removed one of the boards after hearing cries from the trapped pups. The mother returned to the school grounds and paced relentlessly around the den, circling the portable. When darkness set in, she finally went under the building, emerging with her four young. School district communications manager Jodie Wilson stressed that staff did not intentionally trap the pups and that they had looked beneath the portable before sealing the den. “Before it was boarded up yesterday, there were three men down there with flashlights, specifically looking for signs of coyotes (and) pups, and they found (and) saw nothing. If the pups were underneath the portable, boarding it up with them underneath was never intentional and would have been rectified immediately if it had been brought to the attention of the school district directly instead of through the media,” she said in an email to the NOW.

Where the wild things are: Burnaby resident Bruce Causier, with his kids Kyra and Alex, at the coyote den beneath a portable at Marlborough Elementary. The den has since been boarded up so the coyote cannot return with her pups.
Dan Straker, a coordinator from CoExisting with Coyotes, visited the site Wednesday, crawled underneath the portable on his belly, filming with his iPhone, to make sure there were no pups present before the site was sealed again. Straker said he saw a few places the coyote had dug under the portable. “There was just a bunch of garbage under there. It kind of confirmed they were using that area as a feeding area.
They’ve kind of moved along now,” he said. “Keeping school yards clean of garbage is really important.” Earlier, Straker said the pups may have had to go into a rehabilitation centre if the mom hadn’t moved them to a safe place, but now he thinks that’s unnecessary. “The coyote mom learned a valuable lesson on where to put a den,” he said. “They are intelligent animals, and she knows what she did. She knows it was a mistake. She
won’t do it again.” On Friday (today), Co-Existing with Coyotes will be presenting a coyote awareness program at the school, Straker added. Co-Existing with Coyotes is a public awareness program about urban coyotes. To see Causier’s video, go to Jennifer Moreau’s blog at www.burnabynow.com.

Bond lays down the law on policing Alfie Lau
For the second time in as many months, the province has offered an extension to municipalities who haven’t signed off yet on the proposed new 20-year RCMP contract with the federal government. What was once an April 30 and then a May 31 deadline is now June, 30 after Justice Minister Shirley Bond extended the deadline on Tuesday afternoon. “At the end of the day, these municipalities are going to have to decide whether they want the RCMP or not,” Bond told 6
Victoria’s Times Colonist. “One of the things they are going to have to make clear to their residents is the fact that if they choose a contract other than the RCMP contract, they will lose the support that the federal government provides for policing. “I understand several municipalities have said they are not going to sign. I am prepared to extend that deadline to June 30, but there will be consequences at that point. “I will need written indication of what steps will be taken, and at that point if there is not a clear decision, obviously I
will have to involve my assistant deputy minister of police services, because residents need the certainty of their police services and not only that, it is a matter of complying with the Police Act.” As of Tuesday afternoon, 41 of 62 B.C. municipalities have signed off, but the majority of the Metro Vancouver municipalities have not. Most notable amongst the cities that have not signed off are Burnaby, Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, Richmond and North Vancouver (District). Bond said Tuesday that the letters to government from municipalities will have
Superstore* Proctor and Gamble* Red Plum* Staples* London Drugs* Loblaws* M&M Meats* * not in all areas
to indicate their future policing plans if they don’t involve the RCMP. She suggested dissatisfied municipalities could still sign the deal and then immediately execute their two-year optout clause while they plan for their own force in the future. Meanwhile, in Burnaby on Monday night, councillors passed a motion asking for an extension on the deadline and proposed looking into the hiring of a consultant to look into alternative policing models in the event the city wants to move RCMP Page 8

Residents irate over big jump in property taxes staff reporter
Burnaby pensioner George Steinbach is fed up with the high property taxes increases he’s had in recent years. Steinbach, who lives on Lambeth Drive, saw his property taxes go up by more than 20 per cent this year. He says he doesn’t buy the city’s argument that the increase is tied to his property assessment, as the city also increased the tax rate this year. “My property has gone up in value – does that give the city the right to overspend?” he said. “When does the message come through to people that they’ve got to live within their means?” Burnaby council approved a residential property tax rate increase of 3.95 per cent this spring. Steinbach says the city should cut back on pet projects – such as the new Edmonds pool and recreation centre – until it can afford the projects without a tax increase. “Governments around the world and everywhere else are cutting back,” he said. “We’ve got the City of Burnaby spending like they’re drunken sailors.”
The economic upheaval currently happening in Europe and the U.S. could be headed our way, he added. “It’s going to hit here in Canada, too,” he said, adding that we’re part of a global economy. “We’ve got way more rough times to come.” City politicians are out of touch with the people of Burnaby, many of whom cannot afford the constant tax and utility increases, he said. Steinbach’s taxes went from about $6,000 last year to $7,300 this year, and with an additional $1,000 for water and sewer rates, he said. “What do you want to do, raise taxes on somebody’s house to $50,000 so they can’t afford it?” he said. “This is where we’re going.” He noted that this was what was happening in parts of the United States, particularly New York. Tax and utility costs are increasing but wages aren’t, particularly in the public sector, he pointed out, mentioning teachers specifically. “People around the world are revolting,” Steinbach said. “It might be necessary to revolt here.”

He said the only other option is to move from the city, to stop paying into the system. “I don’t know what a person can do,” he said, “but I do know they’re (the government) irresponsible.” Dave Stafford, who spoke with the NOW about his property assessment increase this year and last, phoned to say he too had a property tax increase of more than 20 per cent. His annual taxes increased from about $2,550 last year to $3,092 (after receiving a homeowner grant) this year, he said. Something needs to be done to curb the drastic increases, which have an adverse effect on those living on a budget, particularly pensioners, he said.

“Where does it end?” he added, saying he has stopped donating to charities because of his shrinking budget. This year, the 78-year-old Air Canada retiree saw his property at 4457 Watling St. go up to $932,600 in this year’s assessment – an increase of 22.5 per cent over last year. Stafford’s 2011 assessment for the threebedroom home built in 1957 was $760,800. Homeowners in Burnaby saw an increase in assessed values this year, on average, from five to 15 per cent. The province offers homeowner grants to help with property taxes, with a reduction up to $570 for most homes and an additional $275 for people 65 and over, those with permanent disabilities and veterans of certain wars.

ber of reasons. If she’s not-so-subtley implying that his position is grounded in his political opposition to the Liberals – well, she may indeed have a point. The problem is that beyond politics, there’s plenty of good reasons to balk at the RCMP contract. The force is not an inspiring model of efficiency or fairness today. If the way it handles harassment is any indication, there are serious morale and management issues in the institution. And then there’s the
cost. Would it be cheaper, but just as efficient, to have a municipal force? Perhaps it would. The problem is that no one seems to be presenting any details or data to support either the new RCMP contract or a potential move to a city police force. Without some serious analysis of the different policing models, it’s hard to see that this is anything more than a way of making life difficult for the province and thumbing the city’s nose at Bond.
Flaherty finds deep well of stupidity IN MY OPINION

Flaherty is apparently laying the groundwork for revamping EI, to force workers to take, essentially, the first job that comes along. “I was brought up in a certain way,” Flaherty said. “There is no bad job. The only bad job is not having a job. So I drove a taxi. You know, I refereed hockey. You do what you have to do to make a living.” There’s so much idiocy here, we’re going to have to take it point by point. “There is no bad job.” Do you want to tell that to the families of the dead and brain damaged workers who held jobs at Langley’s A-1 Mushroom farm and composting operation? There are a lot of horrible jobs in this country purely because the bosses ignore health and safety rules. People are killed every year in farming, forestry and mining, in warehouses, by truck crashes and
by equipment malfunctions. Yet people take these jobs, because they have few alternatives. Then fear of being fired usually keeps them from ratting out their bosses to the authorities. Forget danger, we all know there are jobs that are degrading and humiliating, where the boss is a jerk, where you are forced to work unpaid overtime, where your paycheque arrives late, where your tips are confiscated by management. This goes on every day in Canada. “The only bad job is not having a job.” So the day Flaherty leaves his Ottawa office, we can expect to see him sitting by the Home Depot offering to perform day labour, or picking crops for $10 an hour, 12 hours a day? No? You think he’ll put on his suit and get himself a job in an office? Even though that might take a bit longer and be a better use of his talents as a self-important blowhard? It does not make sense for a medical secretary, or a trained welder, or a dentist, or a shipping clerk, to take a menial job right away just because it’s on offer. Those jobs tend to tire people out and leave them with little energy to search for a better position. Our skills shortages are not going to be cured by more doctors taking jobs as cab drivers or skilled technicians working as

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Tax hikes ‘outrageous’
In the past few weeks, I have been reading letters to the editor in regard to tax increases – some of which were in favour of them and some in the contrary. I have always been of the opinion that if our elected politicians would use frugality when spending our tax dollars instead of spending like there is no tomorrow and use a little more common sense when allocating the revenues, our financial situation could be be in a much healthier state. That would translate in smaller percentages of yearly tax increases.

I just received the 2012 property tax notice with a wallop of more then 15 per cent increase from last year. That not only reinforced my beliefs, but it infuriated me to an all-time high. This, I think is outrageous for all homeowners, but I find it especially criminal for those seniors who are on a fixed income and already are having a tough time trying to make ends meet. We all know we must pay taxes in order to receive the benefits we receive from governments of all levels in order to live in a clean and safe city etcetera. However, this, in my opinion, is getting out of hand and is unacceptable. Frank DiCesare, Burnaby

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Bonuses not deserved
Bounty for snakehead fish?
I’m tired of hearing about the bonuses that are being given to executives at ICBC. While I am all in favour of people being rewarded for excellent service, it is my opinion that this is hardly the case, and this money would be better spent properly compensating people injured in accidents who desperately need it. Yes, I am one of those people. I was injured in a horrific motor vehicle accident last year which nearly ended my life. I survived due to a commitment to proper safety gear and procedures, but I was struck on the head hard enough to break my neck, and I spent two weeks in a coma. I am fortunate that it was not longer. My recovery is slow and even now, almost a year afterwards, it is hard to write this letter. (I am getting a friend to help edit it.) I don’t expect to return to work anytime soon and I will probably never be able to do the work I did. Unless the court case is resolved and I receive a judgment (which won’t happen anytime soon) I have no other financial resources. I am receiving about 25 per cent of my wage from ICBC. This is considered the maximum allowance and has been for the last 20 years, yet it is far different from the 75 per cent of my wage I received from WCB, when I was previously injured on the job. Note that this previous injury was less serious and the impact on my finances far less serious. As both are operated by the provincial government, why is there such a large difference in compensation? Could you pay your mortgage or rent on 25 per cent of your income? I doubt it.
Re: Snakehead hunters leave emptyhanded, Burnaby NOW, May 25. Two people have videotaped the snakehead fish(es) in the lower pond of Burnaby’s Central Park. B.C. Ministry of Forestry and Environment and City of Burnaby personnel have been unable to net or zap this non-native fish. The solution is to offer a small cash bounty to the kid who can reel in these “voracious predators”. I’m confident these fish will be quickly caught to claim the reward.

Re: School district head retiring, Burnaby NOW, May 25. We have mixed emotions when leaders like Burnaby school district superintendent Claudio Morelli announce their plans to retire. On the one hand we’re happy for them. On the other hand we feel a real loss. We’re losing 34 years of accumulated wisdom. Losing a true gentleman who, with former chair Diana Mumford, helped start to address the lack of programs for gifted children. Burnaby’s primary and intermediate Challenge programs are just part of the legacy he leaves behind. For that, we sincerely thank you, Mr. Morelli! Peter and Charlene Cech, Burnaby

He displays contempt for anyone not willing to take “real work,” while his labour consists of pushing paper and telling other people what to do. If Flaherty wants to get people working, how about strengthening health and safety inspections, or funding improved transit to expand the prospects of workers with no cars, or helping those with foreign training get Canadian credentials faster? If Flaherty doesn’t support Canadians who want to work, who want meaningful, safe work that pays the bills, he should be fired himself.

Legion up for redevelopment Legion in North Burnaby suffered financially in wake of changed laws Janaya Fuller-Evans
The building that houses Legion Branch No. 148 is up for redevelopment, and if it goes through, could still have room for the Heights Legion. It was the only option for the beleaguered Legion, according to president Dave Taylor, which has suffered financially due to changes to B.C.’s smoking and drinking laws, and increasing property taxes. The Legion committee sent out a letter of intent to 10 developers about a project that would allow the Legion to stay on Hastings Street, and chose Epta Properties to partner on the project. Epta Properties submitted a rezoning application to city hall for the project, which would see the current building replaced by a mixed-use four-storey building. The branch, which was established in 1937, would get the western portion of the new development, according to the application, with space on the ground floor, which it could lease to a commercial tenant, space for its canteen and club on the second floor, and space on the third

What binds a community together? That’s the question I’ve been asking myself ever since I went on the Jane’s Walk in Burnaby Heights. Jane’s Walks are named in honour of urban planner, Jane Jacobs, who dedicated her life to the preservation of neighborhoods where we can live, work, learn and play. I grew up in a housing tract carved out of farmers’ ﬁelds near Kingston Ontario and we’d never heard of Block Watch. Kids just knew that if we were ever afraid we could go to just about any house in a four-block radius and be safe. One of my most powerful memories is of the Christmas when I was about 11 years old. As usual, we Girl Guides went caroling. This particular year, our last stop was two doors from my house. The family’s father had just been killed in an industrial accident. We arrived with the makings of a complete Christmas dinner and wrapped gifts for the mother and her four children. I will never forget the look of relief on that woman’s face. My parents believed that good citizens are created in the embrace of community. They also taught me that it takes effort to create a sense of community. Today, I don’t feel the same connection with my neighbours that we had when I was a kid. Who has the time today to give back to the community the way my parents did? People are working longer hours, spending more time in trafﬁc, and most families are relying on two or more incomes to stay ﬁnancially aﬂoat. Individual debt is at an all-time high. Over the years, conservative governments (and I include the BC Liberals in this deﬁnition) have made it a mission to limit the services that support our daily lives. This obsession not only makes most of us poorer, it robs us of the time and energy we have to participate in public life. It is not a coincidence that voter turnout is dropping to levels that seriously endanger democracy. Like neighbourliness, democracy is conditional on the sense that we are all in this together. I believe governments can make different choices, ones that foster prosperous close-knit communities. I believe an NDP government will make those kinds of choices and that is I why I am running in the next election.

Confederation Park to get new playground City OK’s $295K for North Burnaby park, along with 180K for city tennis courts Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Confederation Park is having its playground replaced, after Burnaby council approved $295,000 in funding for the project at Monday night’s council meeting. Furniture and shade structures will be added near the spray pool and playground, according to a staff report, and the play courts and walkways will be upgraded. Resistant rubber surfacing will also be added at the playground.
Another parks project to be funded from the city’s capital reserves is the repaving of portions of the Cameron Recreation Centre and Burnaby Lake Sports Complex parking lots, as well as the access road for the Burnaby Mountain Golf Course, estimated to cost $725,000. The tennis courts at Stoney Creek and Keswick parks are being resurfaced, fencing is being replaced and the parks department is reviewing new surfacing techniques for the Central Park tennis courts, for a total cost of $180,000. Slit cover drainage will be installed at Kensington Park playing fields one through four, at a cost of $150,000. And improvements are planned for the city’s park trails, at a cost is $100,000. firstname.lastname@example.org

City survey on child care Early childhood group seeks survey respondents The city’s Early Childhood Development Table is hoping to learn more about the challenges local families face in finding child care. The online survey will ask families in Burnaby how long it took them to find child care, where they found out about child care, and what families’ ideal child-care arrangements
would be. The survey will be available online until June 15, at www.kidsinburnaby.ca. The Burnaby ECD Table is a collaborative coalition of more than 90 representatives from government and non-profit community agencies that provide programs and services to families with children from birth to age six. The overall results of the survey will be shared with Burnaby city planners, child-care agencies, nonprofit support programs,
the school district, Fraser Health Authority, the provincial government and the federal government. Individual responses will not be shared. Each family that fills out the survey will be entered into a draw for a $100 gift certificate from the Burnaby parks and recreation program.

Condo: ‘It’s a Titanic’ says resident continued from page 1
Parkcrest, she said. Mayor Derek Corrigan asked if she and other residents had looked at the city’s master plan for the area. The land-use map for Metrotown has the area along Patterson, where the Polygon development would be located, slated for high-density multiple family residential use. But Gott and others were not informed of that when they bought their homes, she said. Residents agreed that a 20- to 24-storey building would be acceptable but not 37 storeys, according to Gott. “It’s a Titanic,” she said. “We’re hoping the developers heard us and want to develop along with us,” Gott added, “and not suffocate us.” The proposed development site is comprised of eight lots along Patterson and Barker avenues.
The Barker Avenue properties currently have single-family homes on them, and the Patterson Avenue lots are occupied by two two-storey apartment buildings with 16 rental units in total. The development proposal includes 242 apartments; a communal lounge, meeting room and gym for residents, located on the ground floor of the tower; landscaped boulevards and trees along Patterson Avenue; and a central gar-
den with a public art installation and a play area. The proposal includes 80,944 square feet of additional floor space in exchange for an estimated $7.5 million cash-in-lieu contribution to the city’s community amenity bonus fund. Brian Ellis, Polygon’s vice-president of development, did not respond to a request for an interview before press time. jfuller-evans@ burnabynow.com

HOMELESSNESS ADVOCATES ASK PROVINCE FOR HELP TO TRANSFORM HOTEL INTO SOCIAL HOUSING
Lack of funding doesn’t deter supporters Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Burnaby council announced Monday that there is no way it can support a transitional supported housing project at the 401 Motor Inn at 2950 Boundary Rd. if there is no funding lined up. The city’s director of planning and building, Basil Luksun, said B.C. Housing sent the city an email on May 24 stating there is no funding available for the project. “B.C. Housing have had discussions with the Lookout Society and Portland Hotel Society, and have advised them of their inability to fund the project,” he told council. “If funding is unavailable, it’s likely we’re unable to proceed,” he added. Mayor Derek Corrigan told two delegations that had come to speak on the issue that they could still do so, but should probably tailor their presentations according to the latest funding information. Wanda Mulholland, community development coordinator for the Burnaby Task Force on Homelessness, said the local Progressive Housing and Lookout societies are aware of the funding issue but have been communicating with Burnaby North MLA
Richard Lee, who agreed to speak with Rich Coleman, the B.C. minister responsible for housing. The minister has requested that the proposal for the project be sent directly to him, as well as B.C. Housing, Mulholland said. “We’re hopeful that Minister Coleman would reassess the proposal,” she added. Ruth Topolnicky, strata president for a building on Manor Street, also spoke to council regarding the proposed project. She and other neighbourhood residents are concerned that transitional housing would create more problems in the area, she said. “I understand (affordable) housing can stabilize a neighbourhood, but I also understand it can destabilize it,” Topolnicky said. Of particular concern, she said, is the current crime problem in the area. She noted residents have seen people doing and dealing drugs in the neighbourhood, there have been break-ins, and stolen cars have been abandoned in the area. The neighbourhood is improving, with more retail stores opening, but it is still a worrisome situation, she added. If the transitional housing project were to shut down due to funding glitches or other problems, Topolnicky asked, where

would the people housed there go? Corrigan and council thanked the delegations for their comments, and thanked staff for returning to council with a report on the proposed project. Corrigan pointed out that council’s primary requirement for supporting the project is not in place - namely, funding. But mayor and council said the requirements laid out in the new staff report on the proposal could be of use to any organizations approaching the city about affordable housing projects.
Primary requirements listed in the report – aside from securing funding from other levels of government – were that affordable housing projects be transitional, with occupants staying up to two years, and that they primarily be for Burnaby’s homeless or those in the city at risk of being homeless. The idea for the 401 Motor Inn project was first pitched to council two weeks ago by Vancouver’s Portland Hotel Society. But the timeline for the project was tight, Dan Small, a director with the society told council. The society had been work-
ing with the owner, Shakil Adam, to secure support and funding for the project within one to two months, according to Small. “It requires a lease to save it,” Small said of the space, adding if action isn’t taken soon, “the reality is, it’s going to be lost.” The family, which also owns Bosman’s Motor Inn in downtown Vancouver and has leased it to the society for a pilot project for the past two years, plans to convert the 401 Motor Inn into a boutique hotel if the project doesn’t go forward, he said. email@example.com

This year’s festival takes place on Saturday, Aug. 11 at Deer Lake Park, with gates opening at 12:30 p.m. The Indigo Girls – known for songs from the late ’80s and ’90s such as Closer to Fine, Least Complicated and Power of Two – are on tour this summer throughout the southern and western United States, and have included Burnaby in their tour. They will be joined by a variety of other blues, roots and folk musicians at the 13th annual festival. The lineup includes blues guitarist Jimmie Vaughan, the older brother of the late Stevie Ray Vaughan. The well-known Texas blues man is touring this summer.

THEN & NOW – A SPECIAL SERIES EXPLORING THE UNIQUE HISTORY OF BURNABY IN PHOTOS For most of human existence, there was no way to capture an image of a time or place – except to paint or draw it. With photography, we have the opportunity to capture a moment in time. In today’s instalment of our ongoing Then & NOW series, reporter Christina
Myers has two sets of photos from SFU’s past and present: a bird’s eye view of Burnaby Mountain shows how much the school campus has physically changed, while shots of students past and present depict a school spirit that’s still going strong.
City of Burnaby Archive ID 372-003/burnaby now
Both reveal a school that has grown, changed and endured through nearly 50 years. Watch our website at www.burnaby now.com for a photo gallery of all the published images from the series so far. Have your own “then and now” story? Email Myers email@example.com.
From above: The campus at Simon Fraser University on Burnaby Mountain has continued to grow and expand since the school first opened its doors in 1965. At left, an aerial from 1965 shows three sides of the quadrangle in construction. At right, a recent shot shows the development of UniverCity and additional school buildings.

Burnaby was still a developing community with a population of about 85,000 at the time, and Burnaby Mountain was totally undeveloped. But the planners were right: the university atop the hill would not just grow but thrive, DATELINE 1965 becoming a world-renowned SFU welcomed its first educational facilstudents in fall 1965, a ity over the combusy year in Canada and beyond.

In Burnaby, famed architects the hospital approved a 340-bed expansion at Arthur Erickson Burnaby Hospital. and Geoffrey
Massey won a competition to design the school. Construction began in the spring of ’64 and, by the fall of 1965, the school was ready to welcome the first 2,500 students under the leadership of the school’s first chancellor, Gordon Shrum. That first year, the school had just six building: the Academic Quadrangle, which has long been the centrepiece of the campus, along with Convocation Mall, the gymnasium, the library, a theatre and a science centre. The school was known as a political hot-bed in the early years, with student protests a regular occurrence on campus, as well as student-led community activities and fundraisers held regularly. The archived photo at right shows a student blood drive held during the first few years of the school’s life. Nearly five decades on, student activism and community involvement is still alive and well. The NOW visited SFU recently to capture a few shots of current students taking part in a fundraising event for cancer research. Organized by Club for the Cure, a student organization, the Balding for Dollars event sees dozens of students and staff come out to have their hair shaved off to raise awareness for childhood cancers. Organizers Jasmine Garcha and Rachel Osterman are just two of the school’s now-30,000 strong student body. As the attendance has grown, the campus has changed – there is now space for 1,766 students in on-campus residences, and the school has more than 1,000 interntaional students from around the world. SFU is now Burnaby’s biggest employer: there are 1,000 faculty members and 6,500 staff members.

History: Atop the hill continued from page 13
And the campus is no longer home to just students and faculty, but to a growing number of residents who are living in UniverCity, Burnaby newest “neighbourhood” development. The project, a sustainable community of homes, complete with elementary school and a variety of services, already has about 3,000 people living in it. It’s expected that number will grow to 4,500 in the next two years as additional projects are completed. The continuing growth has prompted plenty of talk about transportation – including an idea to have a gondola system installed to transport people from the Lougheed corridor up to the mountain. Currently, buses and cars travel up the hillside throughout the day – a challenge in icy and cold weather. In the meantime, the campus will no doubt continue to grow and change – compared to the six buildings on site in 1965, there are now about 100 buildings. These include the W.A.C. Bennett Library, the Halpern Centre, the pool and fitness centre, Blusson Hall, Saywell Hall, and buildings for a growing number of departments, including biology, kinesiology, chemistry, education, technology, science and more. Cleary, the school has done something right over the last five decades: it has been rated Canada’s best comprehensive university nine times in the annual Maclean’s magazine rankings of Canadian universities. The school recently held its annual open house, welcoming some 19,000 community residents, visitors and family members to the campus. For more, see www.sfu.ca.

Gallery hosts unique show from local conceptual artist Julie MacLellan staff reporter
A new exhibition at Burnaby Art Gallery is offering up a unique perspective on where the centre of the world lies. On Fixing Position, which runs at the gallery from June 1 to 24, features the work of Vancouverbased contemporary conceptual artist Lyndl Hall. A press release from the gallery notes that the exhibition encompasses a three-part multimedia conceptual project. The first is structured around an installation of two intersecting walls that are intended to be lines of longitude and latitude that will traverse the gallery and create new boundaries, extending outside to travel across the garden. The second is an artist book recreating an old nautical almanac – and, as an extension of the book, a poster repositioning Vancouver as the Prime Meridian at zero degrees. The third and final component is a looping video, edited together from the artist’s home garden in South Africa in the 1980s
and ‘90s, showing placid pastoral scenes in contrast to the political nature of South Africa at the time. Hall, born in South Africa and now based in Vancouver, explores lines and line-makers as a means for constructing and navigating the spaces we inhabit. On Fixing Position explores navigational grids and instruments such as the sextant, compass and sundial. “The gallery is committed to presenting internationally recognized artists whose work exhibits a diverse spectrum of concepts and images,” said Darrin Martins, directorcurator of Burnaby Art Gallery. “Hall’s inventive approach to fixing latitutde and longitude as invisible structuring lines will change the gallery visitor’s perception of space, time and movement, as the intersecting walls will carve up the architectural space of the gallery to create new areas, boundaries and experiences for bodies to move in.” Martens notes that the latitude line will extend
out through the gallery door, cut across the balcony and travel across the
garden, transforming from wood to chalk lines. The Burnaby Art Gallery
is at 6344 Deer Lake Ave. For more information, call 604-297-4422 or check

Your health depends on a good night’s sleep HEALTHWISE
Dr. Davidicus Wong
nsomnia and other sleep disorders are common problems that patients present to their doctors. Sleeping pills are usually not the best solution. They sedate the brain and by doing so may increase our risk for accidents including falls. This is particularly risky in the elderly who happen to be the group that is prescribed the most sleeping pills. Sedation may persist into the morning, impairing our judgment and alertness at home, at work and on the road. The regular use of sleeping pills may result in dependence – when your brain requires a pill every night to fall asleep and tolerance – when the same dose no longer works and you have to switch to a stronger medication. Instead, you and your doctor could think of
sleeping difficulties as a symptom – a marker for a more significant problem. Together you can treat the underlying cause. Early insomnia – or difficulty falling asleep – can be due to anxiety, stress or stimulants. Avoid exciting activities (i.e. vigorous exercise and arguments) just before bedtime along with caffeinated drinks. Reduce unnecessary stress, and adopt strategies to manage anxiety during the day. These might include meditation, self-reflection, debriefing with your friends or professional counseling. Moderate exercise earlier in the day is often helpful. Middle and late insomnia, such as early morning awakening can sometimes be a symptom of depression. If you are having persistent symptoms, don’t hesitate to talk to your doctor. Some medical conditions can interrupt your sleep. These include bladder problems (such as enlargement of the prostate), congestive heart failure (when individuals feel more short of breath when lying flat) and asthma (wheezing or
bronchospasm that is often worse at night or in the early morning). Nocturnal symptoms suggest that something more is needed to adequately control the underlying condition. Non-restorative sleep can be a sign of a respiratory problem, including obstructive sleep apnea. If you have significant daytime sleepiness, talk to your doctor. The diagnosis can be confirmed with non-invasive tests. When doctors talk about sleep hygiene, they don’t mean clean pajamas, fresh sheets, brushing your teeth and flossing but rather healthy bedtime rituals. These include dedicating the bedroom to sleep rather than video games, television and computer work. Reading is fine if it helps your mind to wind down. Avoid big meals, caffeine, alcohol and exercise close to bedtime. Though many think a nightcap helps their sleep, alcohol is a dirty, twofaced drug. It first sedates the brain (making you feel you can fall asleep right away) and later stimulates (waking you up in the middle of the night). It can contribute to both

Local nurses awarded MEDICAL FILES
trio of Burnaby nurses has been recognized for their outstanding efforts and contributions through the College of Registered Nurses excellence awards program recently. The awards honour registered nurses for their work in the nursing profession and for demonstrating excellence in relation to the college’s professional standards. The three local recipients of this year’s award were: Vivian Eliopoulos, executive director, acute services, Vancouver Coastal Health, in the Excellence in Nursing Administration category; Naomi Monaster, educator, clinical systems support, Vancouver Coastal Health, in the Excellence in Nursing Education category; and, Rena van der Wal, executive director, staffing innovation, Vancouver Coastal Health, for the Excellence in Nursing Administration. The college is the regulatory body for more than 39,000 registered nurses, nurse practitioners and licensed graduate nurses in B.C. For more, see www.crnbc.ca.
Burnaby recently played host to the firstever municipal Healthy Living Trade Show. Representatives from the Fraser Health Authority and 17 local municipalities came together to share ideas about creating healthier communities. Representatives included mayors, council members, MLAs, community organizers and various health partners. Each community came up with specific commitments and plans about different ways to promote health in their area, from
walking programs to local health-centre promotion. The Healthier Communities Partnership was initiated in January 2011 as part of Fraser Health’s Primary Health Care program, supported by the Healthy Families B.C. initiative. Check out www.fraser health.ca for more.
The Burnaby Hospital planning committee is still asking for community input as they get going on the first stage in the master planning process for the future of the facility. The hospital has set up a Facebook account (www.facebook.com/ Mybbyhospital), as well as a Twitter feed at www. twitter.com/mybbyhos pital. On both sites, they encourage local residents to contact them with ideas. “As part of the master planning process for our hospital, we want to hear from all individuals and organizations who would like to share their vision for Burnaby Hospital,” reads the announcement on their Facebook page. “What changes are needed? Please email us at mybbyhospital@hotmail. com so we can schedule a time for you to speak with the Burnaby Hospital community consultation committee.”

On the team
A Burnaby doctor is part of the team of a national health organization that recently released a report on the rates of avoidable deaths in Canada. Dr. Marshall Dahl, an endocrinologist with Vancouver Hospital and Burnaby Hospital, is on the board of directors at the Canadian Institute for Health Information. The institute collects and analyzes information on health and health care in Canada and makes it publicly available. The organization was created by the federal and provincial/territorial governments as a not-for-profit, independent body, with a goal of providing timely, accurate information. The data released by CIHI is used in health policy, delivery of health services and more. See www.cihi.ca for more information.
Get ready, green thumbs – spring is here. But the Canadian Coalition for Immunization Awareness is encouraging local gardeners – along with anyone who simply spends time outside playing – to check their immunization records and consider getting a tetanus shot if they’re due for one. The coalition says that many people associate tetanus with rusty nails, but the toxin is actually found in soil and dirt. Infection usually occurs when an individual is exposed to the toxin through a cut or puncture, such as from a rose bush or a cut from a garden tool. Symptoms of the potentially fatal toxin include stiffness of the jaw, known as lockjaw, along with severe muscle spasms about eight days after infection. A booster dose is needed about every 10 years. For more, see http:// immunize.ca. www.twitter.com/ ChristinaMyersA
Health: Quality sleep is important continued from page 18
their own winding down rituals soon after the end of their workdays, putting up thick curtains in their bedrooms to block the daylight and reducing noise during their day. Exposure to plenty of light for at least 30 minutes after rising can wake up the brain. Consider melatonin to reset your internal clock after discussion with your doctor. It seems
to work best if taken three to five hours before bedtime. Sufficient refreshing sleep is an important aspect of your wellbeing, essential for functioning well in all the important areas of your life, and a marker of good health.

The Cottages at Cultus Lake is a 60-acre secured cottage recreational community set amidst towering cedars and with views of the Cascade Mountain range. This nostalgic yet modern community is currently home to more than 160 residents who call The Cottages their year-round getaway or, for some, their year-round home. “Living in the city, I never thought I’d be able to give my children this sort of freedom, where they can play and explore on their own the way I did when I was growing up,” Scott says watching them zigzag down the road. “That’s probably my favorite thing about life out here at The Cottages – although there are a lot to choose from,” he adds.
One of these favourites is undoubtedly the beautiful 10,000 square foot clubhouse that has become known as The Treehouse. It’s home to hot tubs, a 60-foot adult lap pool, a separate children’s splash pool and a complete ﬁtness centre, as well as a games room, fully equipped theatre, and an adult lounge with outdoor barbecue and dining facilities. Tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, boat storage, a community garden, a peaceful pond and over 10 acres of forested green parks make up The Cottages’ outdoor amenities. The Cottages themselves bring together craftsman-style architecture and a West Coast aesthetic, featuring high cathedral ceilings, open loft spaces, covered front porches and spacious back decks. They combine the coziness of a cottage in the woods with top-of-the-line features like gourmet kitchens and premium ﬁnishings, making day-to-day life as much a retreat at a top-class resort as a rustic getaway in the great outdoors.
With the BC government currently offering a 5% tax rebate on all recreational home purchases and mortgage rates hovering around 3.5%, ﬁnancing is more attractive than ever and it’s not going unnoticed. Prices start at $334,900 and cottages range in size from 966 square feet to 2477 square feet. This spring, there has been a strong uptick in buying interest. Phase 1 and 2 have sold out and Phase 3 is well under way, offering a selection of move-in ready cottages this summer and more than 16 ﬂoor plans to choose from. “Timing is everything. I see that everyday watching my kids grow up. For me, coming out to The Cottages wasn’t just a real estate investment. It was about investing in my family – and every time we’re out here, I see how much it pays off,” Scott says.
“I really didn’t think there was anywhere close enough to the city to make buying a second home worthwhile before I heard about The Cottages,” says Scott. “It’s only a 90-minute drive from our home in For more information, please call Vancouver, so it’s easy to jump in the car 1-877-888-4950 or visit www.CultusLakeCottages.com and head out of town for the weekend.” This means it’s easy to make the most of his investment – not to mention the most of his time with his family, he adds. “But even though it’s so close to the city, when I get out here, it feels like I’ve stepped into a different world: the mature forests surrounding us, great mountain views, clean fresh air, and clear starry nights. I never thought owning a cottage would be so within reach – financially as well.” 053112
“They’ve been looking forward to this for weeks,” says Scott Mayer smiling as he leans over the porch railing of his cottage at The Cottages at Cultus Lake. He waves to his kids as they head off on their bikes towards the Clubhouse.

Major transformations for VW
David Chao and Bob McHugh
The Passat has been transformed from bumper to bumper, and the transformation is remarkable. The completely redesigned Volkswagen Passat is bigger, a better value and has lost some of its German accent since coming to America. Now built in a new plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee, it seems to have picked up a southern drawl, and it’s still a mighty fine automobile. Yes, the “das auto” gang has gone mainstream USA, and the new Passat competes head-on against the likes of Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Hyundai Sonata. In these volatile and changing financial times, if you want to compete with the big boys, it can be both cost-effective and safer to produce high-volume products in major markets. While the new Passat is bigger in almost every way, it retains upmarket premium qualities and technical delights that make a VW, well, a VW. A major one being its TDI Clean Diesel engine, which in the Passat an award-winning turbocharged 2.0litre that offers great fuel economy and produces an amazing 236 lbs.-ft of torque at 1,750 rpm. In addition to the reintroduction of the TDI edition, probably the sweetest piece of news for Canadian consumers is its lower price. Passat now starts at just $23,975, which is

$3,800 lower than the 2010 edition. In addition to TDI, there are 2.5 litre and 3.6-litre V6 engine versions. The TDI (starting at $27,475) is of particular importance to Canadians, where VW expects that it will account for about 45 per cent of new Passat sales. The V6 is expected to out-sell the TDI in the U.S., but when you look at the fuel economy numbers and then drive the TDI, it’s easy to understand why Canadians love it. The Passat TDI differs from the Jetta TDI in that it comes with the extra-clean Ad-Blue exhaust emissions system. Service intervals are every 15,000 km and there’s a warn-
ing system that alerts the driver when its fluid level is getting low. The 2.5-litre and TDI versions of the new Passat come in Treadline, Treadline+, Comfortline and Highline trim levels. The V6 Passat only comes in Comfortline and Highline trim levels. My test TDI Passat was a Trendline+ edition that came without any options and a list price of $28,875. The new roomier and more affordable 2012 Volkswagen Passat has adapted to life in America. The TDI engine edition is still unique in the marketplace, and it offers outstanding fuel economy and terrific pulling power.

Burnaby’s strong arm of the sport Seven-time champ unbeaten with left arm since 2004 Tom Berridge sports editor
Burnaby arm wrestler Anthony Dall’Antonia is putting his best arm forward this summer. Dall’Antonia will be both front-and-centre and behind the scenes at this year’s Canadian national championships in Richmond on the Canada Day long weekend. The 11-time national two-arm champion will have a dual role at the nationals besides defending his right- and left-arm titles. Dall’Antonia will be helping to organize the nationals for the first time. “I think the big part is the competitive part. It was my strength being a competitor. But (organizing) is more of a challenge,” said the 30-year-old Dall’Antonia. “But eventually maybe the elbows will begin to feel it down the road. I love the sport, and I want to give back to the sport and to do everything I can to grow the sport.” To that end, Dall’Antonia has taken on the roles as the Canadian federation director of communication and the provincial association’s media director. He is also getting into refereeing and coaching in a bigger way. Dall’Antonia runs the Vancouver Arm Wrestling Club out of a Burnaby garage near Kensington Avenue and Broadway.
Lakers lose ground against Langley Tom Berridge
Larry Wright/burnaby now
Brothers in arms: Dante, left, and Anthony Dall’Antonia practise the sport of arm wrestling for the upcoming Canadian nationals to be held in Richmond during the Canada Day long weekend.
Last year, the club expanded to three satellite clubs with one in downtown Vancouver, serving the westside, and another existing club also taking on the club’s logo and brand in Campbell River. Besides sharing website information, the club also intends to work closely with the other groups, sending wrestlers to the other sites to hold seminars and share experiences.
“We’re trying to help them by putting back into our sport and teaching them,” said Dall’Antonia. “We’re just hoping they can piggy-back off of us.” The nationals have been held in B.C. three times before, but always in Kelowna. When the west earned the bid this year, Dall’Antonia decided to take the bull by the horns. He chose the River Rock Casino complex as
the venue because of its close proximity to the airport. The championships will be held from June 29 to July 2, with the competition taking place on the Saturday and Sunday. Leadinguptothenationals, the club will showcase the sport of arm wrestling at The Vancouver Men’s Show at the Tradex Centre in Abbotsford from June 15 to 17. An armwrestling chal-
lenge for first-timers-only will be held on the Sunday as the club’s way of helping popularize the sport and dispell any misconceptions of the wrestlers to a new segment of the Lower Mainland. “There has always been the stereotype of the bikerbelly guy in the bar,” said Dall’Antonia. “But there is a lot of athleticism – speed, Arm Page 36
Alpha grad helps pro club to Austrian title Tom Berridge sports editor
Matt Rachar of Burnaby helped his professional basketball club win a national championship title in Austria. Rachar, a former B.C. high school firstteam all-star at Alpha Secondary School and a University of B.C. iron man, shot a perfect three-for-three in the final game to help spark the Xion Dukes Klosterneuburg to a 67-55 victory over the A Bundesliga regular season champions Allianz Swans Gmunden on May 24. Rachar hit a pair of mid-range jump shots at the beginning of the second quarter that sent the Dukes on a 13-4 run and to a 36-28 lead at half time. Gmunden, the Bundesliga champions in 2010 and three-time playoff finalist, rallied to within three points of the lead with five
minutes left in the game. But Klosterneuberg answered with a couple of three-balls and ran the clock out with successful shooting at the free throw line. “Overall it was a tough, defensive, lowscoring game, which in general was more their style, but we managed to grind it out,” said Rachar, who still holds the B.C. AAA high school record for most field goals in a five-game provincial tournament with 62 while with Alpha in 2004. The Dukes won the playoff final series, defeating the Swans three games to one. Rachar, a three-time academic AllCanadian, had a successful career at UBC, setting an all-time record in the Canada West conference for consecutive games played. But the versatile 6-7 forward never won a Canadian Interuniversity Sports title while Basketball Page 36

The Burnaby Lakers fell four points off the pace for a possible playoff spot following a 14-10 loss to the Langley Thunder on Tuesday. With the first-half of the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League season quickly approaching, Burnaby saw its record fall to 2-6-0 after the defeat in Langley. The visitors took a 43 lead after the opening period on a three-goal rally headed by team captain Jaeden Gastaldo. Gastaldo scored two goals, including his first of a pair of shorthanded markers in the match, while setting up Alex Millin on a power play for the other first-period score. In the second period, Gastaldo knotted the score 6-6, but Langley’s Brett Dobray scored a natural hat trick to put the home club in the lead for good. Kris Liset, with his team-leading 12th goal of the season, shaved the deficit to 8-7 early in the final frame, but that was as close as the Lakers would come. James Rahe tallied three times in a six-goal Thunder third period. Colton Dow, with his second goal of the game, Adam Phillips and Gastaldo, with his fourth goal and team-high sixth point on a power play replied for Burnaby. Gastaldo and Liset share the team scoring lead, both with 24 points. Patrick Bayliss made 31 stops in the Burnaby net. The Lakers will get a second chance against the Thunder this Sunday at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre. Game time is 7 p.m. At Queen’s Park Arena, the first-place Coquitlam Adanacs squeaked out a low-scoring 5-3 win over the New Westminster Salmonbellies on Tuesday. The win improved the A’s record to 8-1-0. New West fell to 6-3-0.

Four Burnaby brothers don’t disappoint in home opener Tom Berridge sports editor
It didn’t take long for the Gajic brothers to make their mark in the New Westminster Salmonbellies 17-7 win over Nanaimo in their home opener on May 24. First star Ilija Gajic opened the Western Lacrosse League season for the Salmonbellies in the third minute with a goal from the left side on an assist from his younger brother Alex. Older brother and team captain Nenad then took a major penalty for a back check and eldest brother Milan came through with his first-ever senior A point, leading a two-on-one up the floor before passing off to Martin Cummings who scored shorthanded to give the ’Bellies an early 2-0 lead. Ilija scored once more in the first period and tallied two more in the final frame to lead the Salmonbellies with four goals and two assists. Alex collected a pair of assists, while Nenad and Milan finished the night off with single helpers. Second star Kevin Crowley led all scorers with a seven-point night, including back-to-back goals early in the middle period that put the home team ahead 8-1 after just 23 minutes of play. “It was nice,” said Ilija to play with all three of his brothers for the first time. “Except in some moments of the game, the team played well. … It was a good first game from everyone.” Nenad was also happy with the way the Gajic family debuted. “I’m the only one who has played with
all of them (my brothers) but not at the same time. It was fun,” Nenad said. Piling up the points against Nanaimo, a team that overwhelmed Langley by the same 17-7 score a week earlier, appeared fun, too. New West surrendered two power-play goals to Nanaimo early in the second period, but the ’Bellies got back on the gas pedal and fired five more goals in the final 10 minutes to put the outcome in little doubt. However, the final period was nothing like the first two, degenerating into a sloppy affair as the two teams swapped eight goals with what appeared to be little emphasis on defence. “I wasn’t surprised we looked that sharp. … They’ve all been working so hard. … We just got to play a full 60 minutes,” added Ilija. “I know personally I didn’t play every shift, and to win you have to play all 60.” New Westminster appeared to do better in that department on Saturday following a 9-7 win over the struggling Coquitlam Adanacs. Nenad added the nationally No. 2ranked Salmonbellies have no intentions of ending the season like they did last year. “It was not acceptable the way we finished last year. We were really itching to play tonight (Thursday), for sure,” said Nenad. The Salmonbellies host Maple Ridge at Queen’s Park Arena on Thursday. New West is in Burnaby today (Friday) against the Lakers at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre. Both games are 7:45 p.m. starts.

Third best: A Burnaby/New Westminster girls’ basketball team won the bronze medal at the provincial under-14 zone championships in Langley last weekend. The BurWest squad, including Lindsey Bott of Suncrest Elementary, Jacey Bailey of Burnaby Mountain Secondary and STM’s Anjelika Ku and Nikko Sahagun shared in the third-place win over Surrey/Langley.
Basketball: ‘Ecstatic’ over title win continued from page 35
with the Thunderbirds, despite going into the national championships on two occasions as the Canada West champions in 2007 and ’08. “I am, of course, ecstatic about winning the championship. I have been playing basketball for a long time, and that was the first time the season ended on
a high note,” said Rachar. “Nothing will make up for the disappointment of losing the CIS championship in my senior year, but it certainly helps, especially because it was so unexpected this year.” Rachar’s first two seasons in Klosterneuberg ended with early exits in the opening round of playoffs. But this season the
Dukes, runner-up finishers to Gmunden in the Group A standings, made it into the semifinals following a 3-2 series win over Group B winner Furstenfeld. Klosterneuburg then defeated Kapfenberg, which matched the Dukes with an identical 219 record through the A league regular season, in a four-game series to move on to the final.

strength and technique. It’s an explosive sport and quick.” Dall’Antonia is the current titleholder at 80 kilograms for both right and left arms. His biggest challenge comes from George Iszakouits of Ontario, an older competitor who has a physical condition that locks his elbow making him next to impossible to beat. Dall-Antonia is the only man to have bettered Iszakouits at the nationals. The matches between the two men can last up to 15 minutes, which is in direct contrast to most of Dall’Antonia’s right-handed bouts that are over in a blink of an eye. The defending seven-time national champion is even more dominant with his left arm and is unbeaten since 2004,

Golfing Knights victorious at high school invite Tom Berridge sports editor
It wasn’t exactly five in a row, but it was the next best thing for the St. Thomas More Knights golf team. The Knights won a two-day, eight-team high school invitational golf tournament hosted by Shawnigan Lake School and held at Arbutus Ridge Golf Course in Cowichan Bay last Sunday. Grade 11 Knight Alan Tolusso won the individual low gross, posting a five-under-par 135 following an even-par-70 in the opening round. Tolusso fired a sizzling 65 on the final day of competition despite the many out of bounds and tricky greens on the 6,193-yard Arbutus Ridge course. “To be able to shoot that well, you have to putt well and be able to put the ball in the right place. It was an excellent, excellent showing,” said STM head coach Joe Thierman. The Burnaby golfer, the only competitor to shoot par or better in the twoday event, easily bettered runner-up Cris Crisologo of Vancouver College by 11 strokes. STM teammates, Kevin

Carvalho joined Giants goalie Braden Krogfoss on the all-league team. Carvalho, a second-year blueliner, tied for third in playoff scoring and finished sixth in overall team scoring with six goals and 23 assists. The 5-8 D-man tallied 10 goals and 60 points in his major midget career.
Valley West Hawks defenceman Jordan Klimek, Okanagan Rockets forward Parker Bowles and Northeast Chiefs forwards Jamie Waddington and Adam Rockwood rounded out the elite major midget all-star team.

HERBERTS, Lewis Thorne BA, MD, FRCSC Jan 15, 1922 - May 25, 2012
Predeceased by his wife Doris (nee Beginn) February 6, 2010, brother David 1996. Lewis went to be with Doris on May 25, 2012. Lewis’s legacy; three sons, Dana (Donna), Carey (Lynn), Michael (Daphne), seven grandchildren, Meryl, Angela (Dave), Chelsea, Adrien, Lindsay, Brady, Cameron. Lewis leaves to mourn, sister-in law Rita and nieces/nephews Lee, Rena, Marnie, Derek, cousins Dorothy, Jimmie and lifelong friends across Canada and the US. Lewis received his BA as an Honours Math student at UBC 1944. Following this he went to McGill Medical School and then specialized in Urology. As an intern at the Montreal General Hospital he met Doris Beginn which led to a remarkable 60 year marriage. He practiced medicine in New Westminster until 1984. Among his many accomplishments, Lewis was head of the Urology Department at the Royal Columbian Hospital during his career, Commodore of the Royal Westminster Yacht Club, and a member of the Boundary Bay Flying Club as well as the Langley Flying Club whose members shared his love of ﬂying.. In his “retirement” he combined his medical expertise with his love for aviation and performed aviation medicals for the MOT. Lewis was passionate about ﬂying, projects at his cottage, and his incredible workshop where he spent hours at a time designing and constructing everything from safes and wagons for the grandchildren to prefabricated docks and buildings for his cottage. His love of ﬂying his own airplane took him as far north as Inuvik and as far south as Mexico with numerous trips and experiences in between. He was a remarkable individual with many talents. He will be missed. Our sincere thanks to our Dufferin Care Center family for their kind loving care. We also thank Dr. Bernie Toews for his many years of care. No service by request. In lieu of ﬂowers, we would ask that donations be made to the Alzheimer Society of B.C. (Alzheimerbc.org)

HERINGER, Herman (Harry) Harold May 02, 1943 - May 25, 2012 Passed away peacefully at home after struggling with the effects of bladder cancer for 18 months. Beloved husband of Joann. Loving father of Pauli-Ann (Dan) Carriere and Heidi Heringer. Proud opa of Danielle and Jack. Harry will be deeply missed by his family. A 42-year resident of Queensborough, Harry will be sadly missed by his many friends in the neighbourhood. Harry also leaves behind extended family and friends worldwide, particularly in the village of his childhood, Langenschiltach, Germany, and Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he spent his school years and young adulthood, met his bride, and apprenticed with the Canadian National Railway. At the age of 23, Harry moved his young family to New Westminster and continued his work as a heavy duty mechanic, eventually retiring from B.C. Hydro in 2002, after more than 20 years of service. Never without an opinion, Harry loved adventure and a hearty conversation, preferably over an ice-cold beer, after a long ride on his Harley Davidson. Harry truly and forever enjoyed the company of his family and friends. A celebration of life will be held in August 2012. In lieu of flowers, in -memoriam contributions to the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Continue to rest, retreat – be alone, to enjoy the peace, to think clearly, and to accomplish and make plans while others dance for the pied piper of others’ approval. Tackle chores and protect your health (eat, dress sensibly) Sunday/Monday. All’s well, but avoid unsafe use of machinery in/around home Monday. Relationships succeed in every way Tuesday/Wednesday, except one: marriage, partnership. Be diplomatic. Life’s mysteries rise to the surface Thursday (problems – careful driving, and with machinery) and Friday (success) – a powerful (but forbidden?) attraction might occur. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The accent remains on friendships, groups, wish fulﬁllment, entertainment, and light romance (which might become deep). Sunday/Monday emphasize the intense side of these areas, and could cause a mild dilemma: do you opt for light or powerful romance? For independent creativity, or “creation by committee?” If things do intensify, let them. Only money, or emotional possessiveness, can ruin results (Monday and Thursday). Tackle chores Tuesday/Wednesday. (Be careful with electricity – and your back.) Love, exciting meetings, new vistas, great opportunities arrive, Thursday to Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The focus lies on your career, worldly standing, prestige relationships, and dealings with authorities. Be careful, prudent this week, for Sunday/Monday and Thursday could trigger hasty reactions on all sides. Otherwise, this is a productive, good week, especially Thursday (avoid temper, hasty investments) through Saturday, when your work efforts meet with splendid success, and could, by Saturday, introduce you to meaningful new relationships or opportunities. Earlier, Sunday and Monday are for home, family, security, nature. Your romantic, beauty-oriented side surfaces midweek.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections
Aries March 21 - April 19: The emphasis remains on trips, visits, talks, emails, news media, casual friends and siblings, curiosity and information. Delays exist, but affection graces all (well, most) interactions. A wise, loving mood descends upon you Sunday and Monday – two lucky days, if you can leave work to one side. (Careful with machines and driving – Thursday too.) Your ambitions come into clear focus Tuesday/ Wednesday. The barrier you feel is a relationship barrier; as long as someone doesn’t accept you, a career advance might be hard to gain. Thursday on, popularity, optimism and joy visit you! Taurus April 20-May 20: The accent remains on money, buying/selling, earnings, clients, possessions – and sensual attractions. Sunday/ Monday, your ﬁnances lean toward long-term objectives: investments, debt reduction (or increase) money-sharing, etc. Be bold Sunday, mildly careful Monday. A wise, gentle, understanding mood drifts over you Tuesday/Wednesday. Don’t force home/ domestic matters either evening. Your ambitions awaken Thursday/Friday – avoid bending any legal/ ethical rules (and avoid those who do) – your efforts could strike gold, or earn a VIP’s praise! Joy, friends Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy, charisma, clout and effectiveness ride the crest of a wave! Get out, start important projects, ask favours, express love if you feel it – in all, avoid selﬁsh or ultraindependent actions/moods. (This advice applies until Aug. 30.) You’ll be reminded of others’ presence Sunday/Monday, when relationships occupy centre stage. Exciting meetings, challenges/opposition, opportunities, partnerships, even love are possible. But both days (and Thursday) hint that your home, or your hopes about home, property, can block a bonding. Love, joy, travel late week.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The things you love gently pull your sleeve this week: far travel, international ideas and communications, law and justice, learning, culture and compassionate love. Try a foreign ﬁlm or a play. (DO NOT start a lawsuit before September.) Casual friends, siblings, short trips, paperwork and communications ﬁll Sunday/Monday.These two days, and Thursday, point to a ﬂaw in a new or burgeoning relationship: this person might have too much power over you, subtly restricts or burdens you, etc. Retreat to contemplate this, midweek. Thursday to Saturday: romance, creative urges, beauty! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Mysteries, secrets, research, detective work – mighty changes which can turn the course of your life – powerful sexual urges, high intuition, ﬁnancial courage – these ﬁll this week and next. To succeed, keep honesty and moral goodness in your ﬁst. (Without these, success occurs, but itself forms the ﬁrst step toward traps and loss. Remember this advice through August.) This week, work demands or co-workers might interfere with your progress: act when free of these. Chase money Sunday/Monday. Trips, talk midweek. Thursday to Saturday brings a triumph on family, realty fronts. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, clout and pizzazz ride high Sunday/Monday – but it’s only so you can be more attractive when you propose joining up with others. Maintain a diplomatic, friendly approach, but do approach. Chase money – carefully – Tuesday/Wednesday. Thursday to Saturday bring travel, errands, casual friends, siblings, news and curiosity. You and another might start a friendly romance; someone might aid you in home or real estate. A Gemini now can change your life; an Aries might disrupt it. All week, protect your career position with a simple potion: gentleness, humour.

June 3 - 9, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Tackle chores. Sleep properly, and protect your health from seasonal complaints. Continue to avoid legal suits. Retreat, contemplate and plan Sunday/Monday. Some of your ideas could be brilliant, especially in areas of labour and career. Your energy and charisma return somewhat midweek – your home/family hold surprises (and you’re tense there) so train your efforts on career, prestige, document and educational fronts. Spend, chase money Thursday to Saturday – luck accompanies you! But buy no machinery, computer or auto. All week, diplomatically sidestep opinionated people. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A love affair might have begun recently, or could this week. It’s quite likely that your “amour” stumbles over speech, acts nervous, or has a temper (or a critical side). You need to decide whether to fuse together, or to wait until someone else wanders down the path. I have no advice: only that, if your motives are pure, this affair should be ﬁne. It certainly has a sexy side. Your popularity and optimism soar Sunday/Monday. A wish might come true! Retreat, ﬁnd rest and solitude Tuesday/ Wednesday. Your energy, charisma and clout surge Thursday to Saturday – start something! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The accent remains on home, property, family, nature, nutrition and soul. Be restful – this is a bit of a hibernation time. Your luck in real estate grows – to June 2013. Be ambitious Sunday/Monday, but deftly avoid money discussions (Thursday also) especially with a partner or prospective client. Your hopes rise – so does your popularity – Tuesday/Wednesday. But take care both evenings, as monetary or sensual disappointment can occur. Retreat Thursday to noon Saturday – lie low, rest, contemplate and plan. Though you’re tired, your luck soars in home, realty, love and art. firstname.lastname@example.org • Reading: 604-727-3673
