Premier playing poker?

Premier Christy Clark’s proposition to strike a 10-year period of “labour peace” with the B.C. teachers seems like a high-stakes poker game to the president of the Burnaby Teachers’ Association. “To me it seems like a highpressure, high-stakes poker game, not so much about creating stability in the system in a meaningful way with the main stakeholder group, which is teachers,” said James Sanyshyn, president of the Burnaby Teachers’ Association. Sanyshyn was commenting on Clark’s Wednesday announcement that the province James Sanyshyn would like BTA president to review the teacher bargaining process and bring in a 10-year deal with teachers, creating a period of stability, free from the ongoing labour disputes that have plagued the two parties for years. “Imagine being able to negotiate a 10-year deal,” Clark said in a press release. “Imagine a child starting Grade 2 this year moving through to graduation without ever having to experience labour Teachers Page 5

Squatting by the water’s edge, Cipywnyk says that female chum usually lay about 2,000 eggs. “Of all those eggs, you’d be lucky to have five or six make it all the way and return to spawn again. The odds are amazing.” Every year, volunteer streamkeepers comb the creek, counting and cataloguing information on dead spawners. While they won’t have final numbers until December, Cipywnyk is hoping this year’s run will match if not surpass previous counts. Byrne Creek’s returning salmon population peaked in 2004 at 91, but the numbers have more or Salmon Page 9

CITY STEPS IN AND RAZES NEIGHBOURHOOD GARDEN AFTER RECEIVING COMPLAINTS

Urban sanctuary or urban eyesore? Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Fawzia Ahmad’s prolific Burnaby garden is a source of pride and joy for her. Ahmad and Rosanne Johnson spent the last 14 years at their Pandora Street home caring for the plentiful plants, such as butterfly bushes and pussy willows, in an attempt to improve the ecology of the neighbourhood and connect with the community. “It’s certified as an urban wildlife habitat,” Ahmad said. “A lot of the plants in the front garden attract hummingbirds and finches. We’ve counted up to 26 species of birds over the years.” Which is why they were upset when neighbours began complaining to the city about the foliage about five or six years ago. “A couple of them over the years as the garden matured started objecting to it, but the community as a whole really loved the garden, walked by all the time and really enjoyed it,” Johnson said. The garden went right up to the edge of the sidewalk, and Ahmad had also planted on the boulevard on the other side of the sidewalk, with butterfly bushes creating a canopy over it. The first letter they received from the city stated that plants were encroaching two inches over the sidewalk, so they cut them back, Ahmad said. None of the neighbours have spoken to them directly about it, she added, but there has been back-and-forth with the city over the years. While city staff have expressed admiration for the garden, Ahmad said, they have also said they have to respond to the complaints because the encroachment goes against the city’s street traffic bylaw. “Every time we cut it back and ensured things were off the sidewalk, the city still came and cut it even more than we had,” she said. Most recently, Ahmad and Johnson were told the city was going to come and cut back the garden on Oct. 22. But city staff showed up on Oct. 12 instead. “The city came two weeks early,” Ahmad said. “I was going to try to save some of those plants because they’re wellestablished, they’re mature, and before I knew it, they were gone.” City staff cut down the plants on the boulevard completely and cut back about two feet along the side of the property. Ahmad would like to see more cooperation between the city and residents on beautifying and maintaining boulevards, as is done in other cities with programs such as boulevard adoption. People who pass by are generally supportive of the garden, but not those living

encroaching on the sidewalk with a letter, and if the resident doesn’t cut it back, the city comes in and does it then, Davis said. But in this case, the heavy rains last week brought the canopy down, and the city received a complaint about the sidewalk being blocked, he explained. “With the heavy rain and the fact that the vegetation had grown right over top, it had all started to collapse in on the sidewalk and also to collapse over the cars on the street that were parked there,” Davis said. “Given that urgency, that’s why we did it,” he added. “Normally we would give them the full time before we go in there.” Davis is checking with staff to see if the property owners were contacted or notified that the work would be taking place on Oct. 12, he said, and added the residents will not be billed for the work. “We don’t normally bill them for it unless it’s really, really excessive and it’s unsightly premises and they haven’t cooperated,” he said. Burnaby does not currently have a boulevard adoption program, Davis confirmed.

OUT AND ABOUT WITH Richard T. Lee, MLA BURNABY NORTH

STANDING UP FOR BRITISH COLUMBIA British Columbia is blessed with extraordinary natural beauty. Preserving it is certainly of paramount importance to our government. I am also proud of our record on fiscal management and responsible development of resources, including natural gas. Yet, when it comes to heavy oil pipeline projects, the potential consequences could be severe. This is why our government put forward five requirements that must be met for any heavy oil pipeline project in B.C. Three of these conditions require world class land and sea spill prevention, as well as successful completion of the environmental assessment review. On this issue, our message is unambiguous; before any heavy oil pipeline is constructed within our borders, we must first be convinced it does not come at the expense of our environment. For questions or comments, contact me at Richard.Lee.MLA@leg.bc.ca.

As it turned out the individual did not live at the address now spread globally online. But he was still tracked down, and the mother of the young man named was understandably frightened for his safety and her family’s safety. She said his siblings are now being tormented at school.

We don’t know if the young man who was subjected to the online lynch mob helped push Amanda into a desperate and tragic act. But what we do know for sure is that there is something ugly and deeply troubling when people of usually sound minds jump on the “get ‘em” bandwagon so easily. Is it OK to bully the bullies? And then, where does it stop? But surely we are no better than the bullies for egging on any kind of behaviour that denies someone the right to explain themselves and be subject to a proper investigation.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Proposed riding changes are bad Dear Editor:

Re: Proposed new Burnaby North – Seymour federal electoral district I am writing to express my strong opposition to the proposal to merge Burnaby North and a part of the North Shore into a new federal electoral district called Burnaby North – Seymour. I understand the need for voters to have proportional representation in the House of Commons, but I question how long the proposed new electoral district will meet that test. Burnaby will experience significant population growth in the coming years, with thousands of new residents coming to North Burnaby, especially near major transit hubs such as

the Brentwood Town Centre. We are also undergoing a revitalization of the Hastings corridor with a number of new four-storey buildings (ground floor commercial space, upper floors residential condominiums). This will not occur over many years – it’s happening today. This means that in just a few short years, our electoral district will have to be reconfigured yet again, likely reverting back to a Burnaby North riding that no longer includes the North Shore. Voters in both the North Shore and in North Burnaby have expressed strong opposition to the proposed new boundaries – we have different needs, different populations, different infrastructure and different issues.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR New plan is flawed continued from page 6

As stewards of our tax dollars, I urge the commission to reconsider the proposed boundaries and to include that portion of the North Shore identified in the proposed Burnaby North – Seymour riding with the proposed North Vancouver and Coquitlam – Port Coquitlam ridings, both of which are comprised of voters with far more in common with their North Shore neighbours. Please avoid the unnecessary waste of tax dollars on a convenient but fundamentally flawed solution. Peter Cech, Burnaby

Real debate needed Dear Editor:

Re: ‘Amateur hour’ for B.C. premier, In My Opinion, Burnaby NOW, Oct. 10. Keith Baldrey paints a dark picture of the future of coastal ferries. No question, it’s serious, but consider the context. B.C. Ferries operates one of the largest ferry systems in the world. It’s a $700 million a year business. That’s part of the price of having a coastline, one with a population and magnificent scenery. Sort of like having mountains, doubling the cost of the highway network. A blessing and a curse. But it’s our blessing and our curse. Any ferry system, just like any public transit system, requires government contribution to supplement what comes from the fare box. B.C. Ferries customers pay for

85 per cent of the operating costs, substantially more than the 30 to 35 per cent transit customers pay, and well over what customers of comparable ferry systems pay. The B.C. government is getting a super deal, considering what it’s receiving. As to the $200 million cited, B.C. taxpayers contributed $127 million as a service fee to B.C. Ferries and another $3.3 million related to fuel cost adjustments. Beyond that, the government contributed $28.4 million through B.C. Ferries to seniors, students and medical needs. That money did nothing for B.C. Ferries as they were required to provide free or discounted ferry service to the recipients. If the government chooses to provide free rides for seniors and students, it’s their decision, and probably a good one. However, that money can’t be lumped into supporting B.C. Ferries. Finally, the federal government contributed $27.5 million. While most ferry riders may not have a clue how to fix the problem as Mr. Baldrey suggests, they can certainly tell you what the problem is from their perspective. The fares are too darned high. Their solution is to travel a lot less or not at all any more. The coastal communities, and the residents and businesses that populate them, are paying an ever higher price. Indeed, hopefully there’ll be a real debate on what to do with the ferry system as part of our provincial infrastructure. It’s long overdue.

lunch programs. So what’s a citizen to do if that $3,000 third-party spending limit stands in the way of getting their message out? Find a chum, form a political party, run a candidate and mystically that limit is now $5.5 million. Just as it takes two to tango, in B.C. it takes the same number to form a political party. Running candidates? Optional, as long as the party runs two candidates every other time out. In fact, one of B.C.’s 27 registered political parties hasn’t run a candidate since 2005, held a political convention in that time or even had a listed telephone number, but boasts more than $2 million in assets. While B.C. MLAs are

diligent at keeping an eye out for their own electoral self-interest, the same can’t be said for their attitude towards their municipal cousins. In races for city halls across the province, it’s a free-for-all. No limits on donations or campaign spending. And no limits on that Rotary Club, even if it tells voters who to vote for. Goldcorp may have been the largest single donor to a provincial party last year, but their gift was chump change compared to Rob Macdonald’s $960,000 donation to the Vancouver NPA, a party that spent $2.5 million to win two seats on council. So what about voters’ lists in local elections? Optional. At least 67 B.C. municipalities couldn’t be bothered to use one last

time out. Surely, the sanctity of the right to vote is one of the cornerstones of a fair election. Yet, despite these anomalies, somehow B.C. still ends up with a government every time out and city halls end up with mayors and councillors. But maybe it escaped the government’s attention that in virtually every election fewer and fewer citizens bother to vote. Maybe it has something to do with citizens losing confidence in the process. And if British Columbians don’t have faith in the very legislation that elects our officials, how can they ever have confidence in the decisions that these individuals make once they’re elected?

City firefighter in calendar Marelle Reid staff reporter

It may be a stereotype that all firefighters are softhearted hard-bodies who rescue kittens stuck in trees, but for at least one, it happens to be true. Burnaby native Michael Cvitkobich is a Delta firefighter who recently took off his shirt to reveal his fit frame for the 2013 Greater Vancouver Fire Fighters’ Hall of Flame Calendar, which raises money for charity. “Mr. August” has also been called to save a cat from a tree while on duty. “We had to use a ladder in a backyard – it was very precarious,” he said. The calendar is an annual fundraiser for the Vancouver Fire Fighters’ Charitable Society, which will donate money from sales to the B.C. Professional Fire Fighters’ Association Burn Fund and the CKNW Orphans’ Fund. Though saving lives is a regular occurrence for firefighters the world over, for Cvitkobich, modelling for the calendar was a unique experience in his career. “I mean, it’s a good laugh, it’s a lot of fun, and it’s a good cause,” he said. “You do get ragged a lot at the fire hall from all the guys, and uncles and family members give you a hard time, but it’s a lot of fun, too.” Cvitkobich has been with the Delta fire department for the past four years. He started his career at 21, after working as a lifeguard since the age of 16. Having that type of work experience was helpful in beating out hundreds of other

Posing for the calendar was easy enough, said Cvitkobich, but the job of being a “calendar guy” this year doesn’t just involve one photo shoot. This weekend, he and the other 11 firefighters from around the Lower Mainland will be at several charity events

in the coming months to help raise awareness of the charities and fundraise for the cause. This weekend they will be in Abbotsford for the West Coast Women’s Show, strutting their stuff in a fashion show on October 20. More than $1 million has been raised for charity in the 26 years the calendar has been produced. The calendars are available at London Drugs, Save On Foods, online, at www.vancouverfirefight ers.ca, and at the Women’s Show from Oct. 19 to 21.

Salmon: Rains bring return of fish continued from page 1

less declined ever since. In 2009, just 10 were counted, but in 2011 the numbers were up to 36, and Cipywnyk doesn’t know why. “I’m not sure what’s making the difference. The number of fish being released is the same,” he says, musing that it could be related to ocean conditions or pollution. With the heavy rains last weekend, Cipywnyk and other Burnaby streamkeepers are starting to see the first of the seasonal salmon returning, and so far, the numbers seem good. In total, seven salmon have been spotted in Byrne Creek, two of which were “paired off and courting.” Alan James, secretary of the Stoney Creek Environment Committee, another local streamkeeping group, is already reporting an excellent return. “There’s probably 100 in the creek at the moment. It’s an early run (of) chum,” he says. “I think it’s definitely more than last year.” James attributed the high numbers to $50,000-worth of habitat improvement work on Stoney Creek, done by volunteers and Fisheries and Oceans Canada. Now chum are turning up all along Stoney Creek, which tends to have the best salmon returns in Burnaby. “Anywhere between the confluence (at the Brunette River) and where the creek goes under North Road, you’ll see them,” James said. “We were waiting for them to come because it was so dry over the early part of fall, and we were hoping they would come when the rains came, and they did.” Cipywnyk finds the annual return

Then a switch goes off in their brains, and a steady marathon begins till they return to their native creek,” he says. “I just find that mind-boggling.” The spawners’ accuracy is astounding, some returning within metres to where they’ve hatched, Cipywnyk says. “When it started to pour a few days ago, I was happy because it meant the fish were coming,” he says.

Anti-bullying workshop in city Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Burnaby’s Alpha Secondary is hosting a parents’ workshop on bullying on Tuesday, Oct. 23. The free workshop features Deborah MacNamara, a counsellor and educator with Vancouver’s Neufeld Institute, which runs courses for adults who work with children. The institute focuses on an “attachment-based developmental model” created by psychologist Gordon Neufeld, and the Burnaby workshop aims to address the root causes of bullying. “Bullying is an age-old problem with a new face in today’s increasingly digital world,” MacNamara wrote in an email to the NOW. “Cyber bullies

B.C.’s highest court on Tuesday dismissed the sentence appeal for sex tourist Kenneth Robert Klassen. Theinternationalartdealer and divorced Burnaby father of three received an 11-year jail term after pleading guilty to sex offences against underage girls in Cambodia and Colombia. On appeal, his lawyer argued that the sentence, the longest jail term for a sex-tourism case in Canada, was too long and asked that it be reduced to seven years. But in a ruling released Tuesday, the B.C. Court of Appeal rejected those arguments. Klassen pleaded guilty to six counts of invitation to sexual touching involving girls under the age of 14 in Colombia, with the offences occurring between December 1998 and March 2002. He also pleaded guilty to eight counts of invitation to sexual touching involving girls under the age of 14 in Cambodia in August 2001 and to one count of importation of child pornography. The case began when customs officials seized a suspicious package from the Philippines that Klassen had mailed to himself. The package contained commercial child pornography. -Keith Fraser, The Province

advisory council are co-sponsoring the event. Ward also ran for school board in the 2011 civic election with Burnaby Parents’ Voice, a group that formed out of opposition to the school district’s policy to protect students from homophobic bullying and harassment. “There’s no contradiction. There’s no organization that I know that’s in favour of bullying,” Ward said, adding that Burnaby Parents’ Voice wanted to see bullying addressed in a holistic way, looking at the psychological dynamics behind bullying. Ward said the workshop has been underway for a long time and was not organized in response to the case of Amanda Todd, the Port Coquitlam teen who recently took her own life after years of bullying and online sexual harassment.

HELICOPTER PILOT

Former Burnaby resident awarded for Arctic rescue Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

A Burnaby boy who went on to become a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot is receiving one of the world’s premier aviation awards for his involvement in a perilous rescue in Arctic waters. Aaron Noble moved to Burnaby with his family at age 10 and attended air cadets in Queen’s Park, New Westminster. He later attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in the U.S. and took a post with the Royal Canadian Air Force as a searchand-rescue helicopter pilot in Greenwood, N.S. Noble is receiving the Guild of Air Pilots and Navigators award for gallantry. The guild’s annual trophy and awards presentation is to honour the highest standards of airmanship and are considered, according to the guild, “among the world’s premier aviation accolades.” According to a press release from the guild, on Oct. 27, 2011, Noble and his crew responded to a distress call near Igloolik, Nunavut. Two hunters were stranded on an iceflow, high in the Arctic, and the conditions were worsening. A rescue plane

flew over the scene, and two men parachuted below, but large chunks of ice were tossed in the air by 55- to 90-kilometere winds and violent waves reaching up to 10 metres high. Noble’s helicopter was also dispatched, but it was a 14-hour flight to reach the hunters. When Noble, the aircraft’s commander, and his first office captain Dean Vey arrived on the scene, they found two rescue team members exposed to freezing sea spray, which coated their clothing with ice, making it difficult to swim towards the hunters. Tragically, one of the three search-and-rescue divers involved lost his life that day. “The combination of their efforts and highly skilled winching techniques of flight engineer Sgt. Brad Hiscock ultimately ensured the safe recovery of the two hunters and the surviving search-and-rescue divers, as well as the recovery of their fallen comrade,” the guild’s release reads. “With all people accounted for, the helicopter eventually recovered to Igloolik, low on fuel after a rescue operation that had spanned 18 hours.” Noble will receive his award on Oct. 23 in London, England.

Local autobody shop keeps it green Vancouver repair shop moves to Burnaby, bringing valet service and green practices Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

When Bernhard Rubbert relocated his business, False Creek Collision, from Vancouver to Burnaby last year, he found his Vancouver clients were reluctant to come all the way out to Burnaby. So he began to offer a pick up/drop off service, where he would go to them and take the vehicle to his shop. “They love it,” he says. “I think nobody else is doing that. “The old traditional way is people always have to come to a body shop for assessment of the damage, and have to claim it with the insurance company, wait on that approval, come back, pick up a courtesy car,” Rubbert added. “And after the repairs, you have to return the courtesy car back to the shop and pick up your car. We want to make it easy for our customers.” Rubbert now plans to offer that service to Burnaby customers, as well as others in the western Metro Vancouver area, he says. He moved his business from Sixth Avenue and Fir Street in Vancouver, where he’d been located since 2006, to Burnaby in July 2011 after the city chose not to renew his lease. The City of Vancouver planned to build a park on the site, according to Rubbert. So he bought the shop at 6660 Royal Oak Ave. from the previous owner, who had another shop, and moved his clients there. “It was an absolutely new restart,” he says. “For me, that means you have to invent something in order to survive.” So he added the valet service. Rubbert has been innovative throughout his career, something that is not always common in the industry, he says. He was a chemical engineer with BASF in Germany, and was marketing waterbased paint for finishing in the early 1990s, he says. He then spent four years with a team marketing the new paint in the United States\ and launched the market there. He came to Vancouver during that time, he adds, but there was no interest in

Larry Wright/burnaby now

Ahead of his time: False Creek Collision owner Bernhard Rubbert came to B.C. from Germany, offering automobile water-

based paint in the ‘90s. Later, when he came to the Lower Mainland, he used the paint at his Vancouver repair shop. Last summer, he brought his business and his environmentally progressive practices to Burnaby. it here. So when he immigrated to Canada, his became the first body shop in Canada to use the paint, Rubbert says. “You have to have a push for a change,” he adds. “This is a very conservative industry.” Since then, Environment Canada has required businesses to change to the new technology and stop buying high vola-

tile organic compound paint, according to Rubbert. “From now on, everybody has to use that technology,” he says, adding shops can use up their stock of the old paint but cannot buy it any longer. The changes have had an added benefit for shops, though, he adds. “There’s no smell in the body shops now,” Rubbert says. “In old days, a body

shop was always full of solvents.” Rubbert is also working on networking through business and neighbourhood organizations to build up his clientele, but added it’s most important to prove the business is trustworthy to his clients. “It’s always a relationship you have to build up,” he says. “If you trust somebody, you want to stick with them.” jfuller-evans@burnabynow.com

HOW IT WORKS

WHO CAN BENEFIT?

Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) is a highly sophisticated, nontoxic and non-invasive therapy that uses light energy from both superluminous and laser diodes. When placed in contact with the skin, this energy safely penetrates the tissue. At an intracellular level, the light is transformed into biochemical energy. Cells use this energy to repair and regenerate themselves, enhancing the body’s natural healing process.

BioFlex Low Intensity Laser Therapy is an effective solution for musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions, dermatological problems and the healing of open wounds. BioFlex therapy can safely increase the rate of recovery and help patients reduce the need for pain medication. BioFlex also has the ability to promote rapid recovery post surgery. The beneficial effects of LILT are cumulative over the course of a series of treatments.

Ear infections common in dogs

of ear infections for my patients. While bacterial culture swabs may identify bacterial infection in ears, a more cost effective and sensitive technique is a cytology performed in-clinic. Cytology involves collecting a cotton swab sample from the ear canal followed by application of contents on a glass slide. The glass slide is stained in order to identify bacteria using magnification under the microscope. Yeast infections in ears are common and can be identified by routine cytology technique as well. Topical ear medications like ear drops and ear flush are generally used to treat infections. Oral antibiotics and antifungal medications may be needed. Ear infections that are left untreated or not adequately treated will lead to ruptured ear drums, painful middle ear infections, ear hematoma (blood collection in ear flap) and certain benign tumours of the ear. So, next time you see your dog shake or scratch the ear, remember you are not alone. Also, it is likely not “just an ear infection” and it is time to find out what is making your best friend itch. – Jangi Bajwa, DVM Hastings Veterinary Hospital

ear canal conformation or other diseases they may be prone to. Dogs that go swimming without necessary ear care by owners may be as prone to ear infections as dogs that get excessive ear cleaning. Dogs that are suffering from food or environmental allergies are even more likely to suffer from recurrent ear infections. Allergies are the most common cause of ear infections in dogs. Until and unless the underlying disease condition and ear infections are treated simultaneously, it is naive to expect ear problems to resolve long-term. When there is evidence of associated skin disease (also common for allergies) or with a previous history of skin or ear problems, I often recommend a thorough work-up for allergies or other suspected causes

As dog owners, we have all probably seen a dog scratch its ear or shake its head repeatedly at one time or another. In a 2010 survey conducted on 485,000 insured pets in North America, the most common medical condition in dogs was found to be ear infections, as reported by the Veterinary Practice News magazine. While some ear infections are truly primary problems, often there is a vital need to diagnose and correct the underlying cause for ear infections, especially recurrent and chronic ones. Primary diseases predisposing dogs to ear problems include food allergy, environmental allergy, foreign body in ear canal, ear masses etc. Certain breeds like German Shepherds and Cocker Spaniels are predisposed to ear problems due to their

“Ponsy” is a highly energetic, excitable dog. Her energy level would match that of a very active family (children 8+) with no other pets and requires a confident guardian(s) with good obedience techniques. “Ponsy” doesn’t like being alone so gradual departure exercises will help Ponsy in getting used to spending time on her own. She will need to be introduced slowly to dogs and rewarded for relaxed behaviour and play. Ponsy is spirited, lively, playful, loving and affectionate. She loves to be around people and will make an ideal lap dog.

“Tobias” is another forgotten feline that was left behind when his previous owner vacated their apartment. If you are patient, gentle and live in a quiet, adult home, he will certainly come out of his shell for you! Tobias is a bit shy, yet friendly. He welcomes petting sessions and even tolerates being picked up but his preference is to have four on the floor. Once feeling comfortable and safe, we can see this handsome guy turning into a lap cat!

Hi

Ally is in a foster home but needs a permanent one! Ally is a very playful cat and loves to run around. She likes affection for a few minutes at a time, and will purr up a storm. She likes to hang out where people are, and hates having doors closed on her. She does not scratch the furniture and always uses the litterbox. Ally is a joy to have around and is a very loving girl, searching and waiting patiently for her forever home.

“Mona” is one of the most deserving felines of a forever, loving home. She came to us from Prince Rupert where she was found homeless in the hopes of more exposure.Well, this BIG hearted, big boned gal has patiently been awaiting for almost a year now to be adopted. Although she tolerates some cats, she would be happiest as the queen of her home. She is very attentive and would follow you around the house chit chatting away about her day. She also LOVES to be on the receiving end of the attention.

She is a quieter girl who enjoys lots of love and will even roll over onto her back for you to soak up all of your love. Winnie enjoy treats, and does not seem to mind the company of other cats. If you are looking for a cuddle bug and wanting someone to adore, I could be the perfect girl for you.

“Two Bits” is a wonderful companion and loves to climb on laps for cuddles. He would however prefer a quieter home and will happily greet your visitors to get some extra head rubs. He sticks close to where you are, making himself comfortable on furniture or the floor – anywhere that is within a few feet of you. At night, he curls up on the end of the bed for his evening “guard”. Throughout the day, he will often hop up on your lap on his own time for some up-close and personal time. He’s a gentle soul.

Spirituality is essential to one’s well being HEALTHWISE

Dr. Davidicus Wong

T

en years ago, my mom gave me what would be her last birthday present to me. Written by psychiatrist, Dr. Roger Walsh, the book, “Essential Spirituality” brings together the shared wisdom of the world’s religions. Dr. Walsh’s work could serve as a guidebook for every human being with practical advice for dealing with our most challenging emotions, our relationships and the inevitable difficulties of life. He talks about the perennial philosophy – the essential core of wisdom that is at the heart of all our great religions. It provides deep insights into life, human nature, health, happiness, suffering and peace. His ideas resonated with my personal approach to life. In an undergraduate religious studies course, I learned that all the world’s great religions spoke the same language - at a deeper, esoteric level. Christian, Jewish and Muslim mystics could walk peacefully with Zen Buddhist monks as they share a common wisdom and vision of our world. This is in contrast to how most people interpret their respective religions and those of others. There is plenty of fodder for argument when their essential texts are read in a literal way. Many others have turned away from religion altogether when they no longer see its relevance to what matters most to them. They seem to get along quite nicely – going to school, working, shopping, managing their homes and raising their families. What is the relevance of spirituality to our lives and to our health? Eventually we must contend with misfortune, illness and death – first the loss of loved ones but ultimately our own. Each of us must manage difficult emotions – anxiety, depression or anger. We all face challenges in our relationships. We may seek meaning and purpose in our lives. Dr. Walsh distinguishes between the terms, religion and spirituality. Most of us think of religion with respect to our identification with a particular set of beliefs. Spirituality, however, refers to the direct experience of the sacred. You can be deeply spiritual

four “mind-changers” fundamental to Tibetan Buddhism: (1) Life is inconceivably precious, (2) Life is short and death is certain, (3) Life contains inevitable difficulties, and (4) Our ethical choices mould our lives.

without going to church. Spiritual practices, in Dr. Walsh’s words, help us experience “that which is most central and essential to our lives – for ourselves.” One exercise from the book is to reflect on the

These four truths inform my approach to medicine and the living of each day. With each baby I deliver, I have not lost a profound sense of wonder and gratitude. We can get so caught up in materialism and petty self-concerns that we

forget that our days are numbered – as are those of our loved ones. If you had but one week with the people you love, what would you say and do? No one is promised a carefree life. Suffering and misfortune are inevitable.

The suffering in life is not doled out evenly; there is no fairness. What we can control and what we do choose is how we take the gift of this life to meet the challenges of health, fate and our relationships.

Making home improvements doesn’t have to mean compromising environmental ideals in the process. There are numerous jobs that a person can do that fit with a green lifestyle. power outage or the swimming pool filter. Today it is possible to buy used solar panels, many of which still have a lot of life left to them.

While these improvements help protect the planet, they’ll also help keep a few extra dollars in your wallet.

4. Aluminum-clad storm door: Insulate the entryway of your home with a storm door that will buffer against harsh weather conditions. And to create a more air-tight space, caulk around windows and doors. – Photo: Dreamstime

G o green at home 1. Conserve water. Turn off the tap between brushing teeth or rinsing off dishes. Better yet, install low-flow faucets, showerheads and toilets that reduce household water consumption. 2. Motion detection: Motion-detector lights can be installed in different rooms indoors and

out. Lights will automatically turn on and off depending on the activity in the area, reducing the chances of a light being left on inadvertently and wasting money and energy. 3. Solar panels: They can be installed on the roofor in the yard to power various components of the household, like lights during a traditional

5. Replace air filters. Your HVAC system likely has filters inside that trap dirt and contaminants. Replacing the filters leads to cleaner indoor air and helps the unit run more efficiently. 6. Power strips: Stock up on power strips and plug all of your peripherals and computer equipment into these strips. This way when you want to power down everything completely, you simply turn off the power button on the strip. This ensures no devices are drawing power even in the off position. 7. Install fans. Fans aren’t just useful in the summer. In the winter, the blades can be set to

rotate in the opposite direction and help draw warm air into the room. 8. Rainwater barrels: Set up rainwater barrels at the downspouts of your home’s gutter system. These barrels collect water that can be used to water indoor and outdoor plants, or even wash the car. 9. Plant trees. Trees are good for the environment in many ways, producing necessary oxygen and offering food and living areas for wildlife. Trees can also shade a home during warm weather. 10. Glass fireplace doors: Install glass fireplace doors, which are safer than fireplace screens. They’ll also help protect against heat loss up the chimney when there isn’t a fire lit. 11. Buy a solar cover. Warm up your spa all season long with a solar cover, which helps keep debris out of the water, too. 12. Dog waste composter: Create a method to safely dispose of dog waste without having to toss it in plastic bags in the trash. There are devices that can be buried into the ground to serve as a dog waste receptacle. Or you can make one of your own. Sprinkle a natural bacteria septic tank product, such as Rid-X(R), down the hole routinely and it will break down the waste and turn it into soil fertilizer. There are a variety of ways to go green with home improvements, whether extensive projects or small fixes. – Metro Creative

Simple ways to give your bathroom

a fresh look and feel FLOORING

That makes a bathroom remodel one of the more expensive home improvement projects a homeowner can undertake. For many homeowners, that costly price tag is simply too much money to commit. Fortunately, there are several simple ways homeowners can give their bathrooms a new look and feel without breaking the bank.

• Install a new shower.

One of the best ways to give a bathroom a new look is to replace the traditional tub and showerhead with a bigger, more airy shower. Such showers are typically found

in modern hotels that boast luxury amenities. Instead of the tub and slide glass, choose a hinged door with heavier glass, replacing the bathtub entirely.

SALE!

currently feature soaking tubs where they can escape the daily grind with a hot bath and now even watch a little television while they soak.

• Replace old tiles.

• Add windows and a skylight.

Many homeowners cite their bathroom’s tiles as the feature they would most like to change. Old linoleum tiles give many bathrooms a dated look that few of today’s homeowners find appealing. Glass tiles are growing in popularity, but those old linoleum or glazed tiles can be swapped out with porcelain or stone tiles to give the room an entirely new look without spending excessively.

Many bathrooms, particularly those in older homes, sorely lack adequate lighting. Adding some extra windows and a skylight can give a bathroom an entirely new look, even if you don’t replace any of the existing features or fixtures.

• Add some entertainment.

Just like they offer larger showers with more room to breathe, many luxury hotels now ensure guests can be entertained even while they’re in the bathroom. Such hotels often feature small flatscreen televisions that sit behind the bathroom’s mirror. Homeowners can bring this lap of luxury into their own homes. This is especially valuable to homeowners whose bathrooms

• Replace the toilet.

Another easy way to give a bathroom a new look is to replace the toilet. Older toilets may be eyesores and many are not very eco-friendly, either. A new toilet can give the bathroom a sleek, modern look, and since many of today’s

luxury models are low-flow, you’ll also do something good for the environment. Renovating a bathroom is a top priority for many homeowners. But if a full-scale remodel is not within your budget, there are still plenty of inexpensive ways to give your bathroom a new look and feel. – Metro Creative

WHEELS Deals Durango lacks style but has guts

NOW contributor

You might appreciate the smooth lines of its exterior and the cool crosshairs grille of the 2012 Durango – and if you need seven seats and fantastic towing power it’s probably the best vehicle on the market – but other than that, it doesn’t stand out from the crowd. That’s unfortunate, because the current Durango is a definite improvement over the previous model, which was retired in 2009 when Chrysler closed its Newark assembly plant. Abandoning its truckbased roots, the third-generation SUV now shares its unibody platform with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, inheriting DNA from the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class SUV. As a result, the Durango is more in line with the tastes of today’s consumers, the vast majority of whom are looking for a car-like SUV for on-road adventures. With better styling, materials, and build quality – a common theme for the revitalized Dodge brand – the Durango addresses the biggest concerns of its predecessor. As such, there’s no particular area where it comes up lacking. Instead, it’s a handful of minor annoyances that hold the Durango back, from the firm seats and smallish interior to the sometimes sluggish V6 powertrain. What this means is that the Durango is a good vehicle with a lots of solid features, but may have a difficult time competing. So what is it that makes you want to like the Durango? It’s the potential – underneath it all there’s the promise of something very rewarding. If you equip the Durango with the right options and you are able to get great discount on it, the vehicle can go from being an average SUV to something special.

Design

There’s nothing spectacular about the Durango’s exterior styling, and it’s certainly not pushing the envelope, but the design work is solid and

very pleasing to the eye. Like other new Dodges, the overdone bulges of the past have been replaced with smoother curves that show off the SUV’s balanced proportions, making this a vehicle of which the designers can be rightfully proud. Compared to the second-generation Durango, this one is far less massive and imposing – and that’s a good thing. Instead of appearing like it wants to be a monster truck, the new Durango comes across as the family vehicle that it’s meant to be. Inside, there’s both good and bad news. The cabin is hugely improved and much more contemporary, with a simple, no-nonsense style and a tall dashboard that suits the SUV. However, the ongoing parts-sharing with other Dodge vehicles remains obvious, preventing the Durango from developing its own personality. When it comes to build quality, the Durango puts its best foot forward. Though the base model remains a bit too plasticky, upper trims feature some of the better materials you’ll find in this class of vehicle.

Performance

Most Durangos are powered by a 3.6L V6 with 290-hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, equipped with a five-speed automatic. The R/T model gains a 5.7L HEMI V8 with 360-hp and 390 lb-ft of torque, as well as a six-speed automatic. Shared with the Grand Cherokee, the V6 is an excellent engine that generates 38 per cent more horsepower and 11 per cent more torque than the engine it replaced in the previous Jeep. However, while there’s lots of power available, the heavy SUV feels sluggish off of the line. The V8 is obviously more spirited, but isn’t worth the trade-off in fuel efficiency. On the road, the Durango is confident, stable, and not too bulky (despite its size), with predictable handling and decent road feedback. Ride quality is generally good, but there’s noticeable vibra-

tion at highway speeds. Rear-wheel drive is available in the U.S., but every Canadian Durango comes with standard allwheel drive. That drops the towing power a bit, but Durango Page 33

the Durango still posts best-in-class numbers in this category: 2,812kg with the V6 and 3,266 kg with the V8.

Environment

Seven seats come as standard equipment, and for 2012 the Durango adds the option of two captain’s chairs in the second row, converting it to a six-seater. Unfortunately, the front seats are overly wide and firm, offering minimal lateral support, and the optional second-row seats likely won’t fare any better. Perhaps the biggest complaint about the Durango is the interior space, which feels smaller than it should in such a large vehicle. Cargo space is so-so, as the third-row seats take up a lot of space and – as is the case with many seven-passenger vehicles – go almost all the way to the back. Fold the seats away and the cargo space becomes somewhat acceptable. Upper models come with a standard power liftgate, but the mechanism is a tad slow.

Features

Ranging in price from $37,995 to $50,295, the Durango comes in SXT, Crew Plus, R/T, and Citadel trims. The V8 engine is only available with the R/T.

Standard equipment on the base SXT includes ABS, traction control, cruise control, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, fog lights, compass, exterior temperature gauge, tilt/telescope steering, six-speaker CD stereo, and front/side/ side-curtain airbags. Additional features, available as options or on higher trims, include an auto-leveling suspension, remote starter, power liftgate, sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, distance-pacing cruise control, blind-spot sensors, parking sensors, heated seats, second-row captain’s chairs, ninespeaker audio, and GPS navigation. Fuel efficiency for the V6 is rated at 13.0L/100km in the city and 8.8L/100km on the highway.

Thumbs up

Excellent exterior design; improved interior; predictable handling; fantastic towing capacity.

Thumbs down

Lots of minor annoyances.

The bottom line

A decent SUV in need of a few tweaks and a standout feature.

Ford Explorer Redesigned for 2011, the Explorer starts at $29,999

Check your tires, top up your windshield washer The number of calls BCAA gets for roadside assistance typically doubles during wet, snowy winter months. But, according to BCAA’s team of automotive techs, many breakdowns, emergencies and related inconveniences can be avoided. BCAA’s Roadside Assistance technicians recommend a full pre-winter vehicle checkup, and advise drivers to take the following precautions: ◆ Ensure tires are properly inflated. Use high-quality winter tires, all four the same. ◆ Test your battery and replace if necessary. Colder temperatures and using more electrical accessories will reduce a battery’s power output, making engines more difficult to start. ◆ Top up your windshield washer reservoir regularly with winter-grade washer fluid. ◆ Ensure all lights are clean and working properly. ◆ Ensure your engine’s cooling system has the appropriate strength antifreeze. ◆ Spray lock lubricant into your key cylinders regularly to prevent door locks from freezing. ◆ Check for the latest weather information to ensure conditions on your planned route are OK. ◆ Allow extra travel time. Let someone know your destination, planned route and expected time of arrival.

and comes with a turbocharged 3.5L V6 producing 290-hp and 255 pounds per foot of torque. With a daring new design and unibody construction, the current Explorer represents a significant departure from its boxy, truck-like predecessors.

Nissan Pathfinder The $37,998 Pathfinder is powered by a 4.0L V6 with 266-hp and 288 lb of torque. It was briefly sold with a 5.6L V8 borrowed from the Titan pickup, but Nissan has since dropped the option. Updated last year with a more rounded

front end that softens its boxy, upright styling, the Pathfinder continues to play the role of tough, offroad-capable SUV, leaving the flash and style to its Murano sibling. Toyota 4Runner $36,935 is the price for a 4Runner, powered by a 4.0L V6 with 270-hp and

278 lb-ft of torque and employing a classic, bodyon-frame platform. Toyota offers a wide range of SUVs, from the RAV4 and Highlander crossovers to the rockhopping FJ Cruiser and full-size Sequoia, with the long-lived 4Runner fitting somewhere in the middle.

ASCENDING WITH VIEWS AND VALUE

B

urnaby’s Brentwood community is becoming a white-hot destination for home buyers and Aviara by Ledingham McAllister represents perhaps the pinnacle of development in the area. Ledingham McAllister has focused on the Brentwood area for years, including the creation of the seven-phase Brentwood Gate masterplanned community. Yet it is the 34-storey Aviara where “Ledmac” is bringing all of its expertise to bear. Aviara, which will open a stunning presentation centre and show home this fall, is a gracefully curved tower that allows virtually all residents outstanding views of the North Shore mountains, downtown Vancouver and beyond. Aviara is the first tower of a new masterplanned community that links to the expansion of Willingdon Heights Park. The Aviara tower itself is set in more than two acres of landscaped space and is skirted by three exclusive townhomes. “Our Burnaby roots are deep,” said Manuela Mirecki, as graduate of North Burnaby High

School, SFU and Ledingham McAllister’s senior vice-president of marketing. She notes that many Ledmac staff also grew up in Burnaby and share a fondness and respect for one of the fastest growing communities in Canada. “We are so proud of Aviara,” she said, “it speaks for the quality of design and sophisticated lifestyles that characterize Burnaby today.” All of the Aviara details won’t be revealed until the Presentation centre opens, but Mirecki did confirm that the tower will feature two inbuilding Modo cars and a free membership that allows residents shared access to cars for a full year. Aviara will also offer extensive bike storage, a fitness centre and a large guest suite. Aviara also incorporates many green building practices. The design is simply stunning. Aviara’s curved glass façade features sweeping balconies with sunshades. Residents will enter over a footbridge across Zen reflecting ponds and by a grand backlit waterfall. Aviara is in an ideal location, close to Brentwood mall – where the first Target store in

B.C. will join 110 other stores – and SkyTrain and yet just minutes from the freeway and downtown Vancouver, Simon Fraser University and some of the best parks in Metro Vancouver. The interior design and finishing quality, hallmarks of Ledmac, will likely convince many that Aviara is home. Prices for the one to three bedroom homes and townhouses will be announced at the presentation centre opening, but Mirecki hints they will be very competitive. “Aviara represents one-of-a-kind affordable luxury,” she said. For more information and to priority register visit www.ledmac.com/aviara, or by phone at 604-291-9130.

Aviara by Ledingham McAllister will soon ascend in Burnaby’s Brentwood community. Watch for the presentation centre opening this fall. For more information and to priority register visit www.ledmac.com/aviara, or call our registration hotline at 604-291-9130.

Learning from the Westcoast’s best Alfie Lau

staff reporter

For 48 junior curlers, being on the same ice as an Olympic champion like Kevin Martin or B.C. champion Jim Cotter should be reward enough, but actually learning from them was the big prize at the recently concluded Westcoast Curling Classic. Cotter and a dozen other curlers hosted a clinic for the juniors prior to the tournament and for four young girls, it was a huge learning experience. “You learn so much about strategy and how they’re thinking about their next shots,” said skip Shawna Jensen, whose South Delta team of sisters Sarah and Megan Daniels and Jensen’s best friend, Katie Sim, finished runner-up in the junior competition. “We’re getting more experience and we’re learning more every time we play.” Jensen was even able to joke that in their practice game against Ken McArdle, they were close to beating the Royal City club skip. “He did come straight from the dentist,” said Jensen, who said her team is a good hitting team that can hold its own with most boys’ teams. That was the case on Oct. 8, when the girls played Tyler Klymchuk’s team in the junior final, losing 10-5. But the game was closer than the score indicated, as the girls came back from a 3-0 first-end deficit to knot the score at 3-3 before Klymchuk put up five in the third to pull away.

Learning from the best: B.C. skip Jim Cotter, far right, shows the South Delta team of skip Shawna Jensen, third Sarah Daniels, second Katie Sim and lead Megan Daniels, some tricks of the curling trade while Cotter’s lead, Rick Sawatsky, looks on at the Royal City Curling Club. Jensen took the defeat in stride, saying her team gave it all they had and perhaps an even bigger thrill was being on the same sheet of ice as the championship final between Kevin Martin and Andrew Bilesky, won by Martin 8-6. For Sim, the second on the team, being on the ice with professionals is old hat. “Last summer, we went to Kevin Martin’s curling camp and we got some one-on-one work with

them,” said Sim. “It was an amazing experience.” Sim also figured out pretty quickly the biggest difference between her skills and the professionals’ abilities. “Man, can they sweep,” she said. “There’s a huge difference there.” For the sisters who attend Seaquam Secondary in Delta and are separated in age by three years, curling is a chance to spend more time together. “We’re pretty good on the ice together,” said

Sarah, a Grade 8 student who throws third stones for Jensen. “Maybe it’s because she’s usually sweeping.” Megan, the Grade 11, lead, agrees: “We’re family on and off the ice.” As the girls go back on the ice, Cotter and his lead, Rick Sawatsky, appreciate the energy boost they get from interacting with the girls. “I really enjoy it,” said Cotter. “When I was asked to help, I jumped on it right away. I’ve been lucky

enough to work with a junior program in Vernon and really, this is the grassroots of curling. … It’s really great to be able to give back.” Cotter said he works with about 40 to 50 kids age six to 14 in Vernon and he’s amazed at how the kids have their fundamentals down at such a young age. “The kids soak up everything and you see how well they’re playing,” Curling Page 46

Budo MA wins gold at world masters Tom Berridge sports editor

Burnaby martial artist Scott Boudreau became the first fighter from Western Canada to win a gold medal in a world jiu jitsu tournament. The 39-year-old owner and instructor of Budo Mixed Martial Arts in North Burnaby won the senior I men’s lightweight division for blue belts at the first-ever International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation masters championships in Los Angeles last weekend. “I feel great,” said Boudreau, who entered his first international

tournament on the encouragement of his friend and ringside coach Raz Chan. “I’ve got to thank (Raz) for that. He got me super prepared,” Boudreau said. Boudreau, who is also a second degree black belt in Kyokushin karate, won all four of his fiveminute jiu jitsu bouts by submission, including the championship final against American Ryan Keith in the men’s 35-to-40 division. “He looked like a wrestler and he was stocky. I said, ‘This is going to be a tough fight.’ But he fell into my trap,” Boudreau said. Boudreau, who prides himself on his standup technique, caught Keith with an arm bar before sub-

mitting his fourth straight opponent in the competition with a leg choke to the neck. “He made a mistake,” Boudreau added. “He wasn’t tapping. I went for it really hard. I felt (his arm) popped and I went for a triangle choke. I was happy with that.” Boudreau was also happy to get through the championship without a single point scored against him in any of this bouts. But, despite his newfound fame, Boudreau does not believe that his philosophy on martial arts will change much. “Training with a world champion does not mean that you will be way better. But I would like to

consider myself as an instructor first,” he said. The Quebec-born fighter trained for nearly two months with Westcoast associates Don Whitefield and Jason Gagnon in preparation for the competition. “I compete because I want to learn. I like losing – that’s how you learn. But winning gold is a great accomplishment. It tells me I’m ready for the next level,” said Boudreau. Although Boudreau will turn 40 next year, he has plans to perhaps try his hand in future open world championships. Jiu jitsu Page 46

Canada earned silver medals in both the men’s and women’s divisions at the Pan American junior field hockey championships for the first time in more than a decade. The women finished second behind Argentina, earning their best finish since 1997 at the junior Pan Ams in Quadalajara, Mexico last month. The junior men, including Burnaby’s Ali Currimbhoy and Gabriel Ho-Garcia, also earned silver medals for only the second time since 1985. Both teams qualified for the Junior World Cup to be played next year. The men last qualified for the worlds back in 2001. The women lost 2-1 to Argentina in the final, while the Canadian men also narrowly lost 3-2 to the South American powerhouse, which has not lost a Pan Am match in almost 35 years. Canada gave up just two goals in the leadup to the gold-medal final, knocking off Chile 8-1 to qualify for the worlds and advance to the championship game. New Westminster brothers Matthew and Stephen Bissett both scored single markers in the one-sided semifinal. Ho-Garcia and Matthew Bissett also tallied in Canada’s 3-1 victory over host Mexico, which clinched top spot for the Canucks in preliminary pool play. Canada also defeated Uruguay and Puerto Rico to get through the opening round without a goal scored against them. Brenden Bissett, the younger of the three brothers on the junior nats, scored in Canada’s 6-0 win over Uruguay. Ho-Garcia opened the tournament with a pair of counters in a resounding 12-0 thrashing over Puerto Rico. Matthew and Brenden Bissett also tallied. The Canadian men will compete at the junior World Cup to be held in India in December 2013.

Grid Clan win streak stopped at two Simon Fraser University was brought back to earth by conference-leading Central Washington in varsity football. After two consecutive wins and Bo Palmer’s near Great Northwest conference record outing against Azusa Pacific last week, the Clan was soundly beaten 51-10 by the first-place Wildcats on Saturday. Palmer failed to reach the century mark in rushing, finishing with

Minor forward named to Cup squad

99 yards on 11 carries, while SFU quarterback and conference passing leader Trey Wheeler was held to just 14 completions on 37 attempts and 146 total yards, while also throwing one interception. On the up side, Eric Murphy and New Westminster’s Casey Chin bolstered the defence with 11 and 10 tackles, respectively. But one Central Washington player who proved hard to stop

was Demetrius Sumler, who scored five touchdowns and rushed for 226 yards. Sumler scored Central Washington’s first three TDs, including two in the opening quarter. The Clan’s only score came in the third quarter from Torre Corrado, who gathered in a 45-yard Wheeler pass. SFU is home to Western Oregon on Saturday. Game time is 2 p.m.

Burnaby’s Marcus Vela was named to the roster of Team B.C.’s entry to the Western Canada under-16 Challenge Cup hockey tournament in Calgary next month. Vela was the only player selected from a midget A1 division team in the largely B.C. major midget-dominated squad. The Burnaby Minor forward and Northwest Giants major midget affiliate joined the Giants’ Jansen Harkins on the 20-member provincial team. Former Burnaby Winter Club bantams Mathew Barzal, Justin Szeto and New Westminster’s Ty Shultz were also named to the B.C. team. The competition will take place from Nov. 1 through 4.

“It’s a tough sport and requires a lot of practice. You have to be a good fighter,” he said. “You have to practise jiu jitsu. It’s the one martial art you need to know. It’s also good for fitness. It’s physical chess. It really, really is.” Budo Mixed Martial Arts is located at 3916 Pender St. in Burnaby. Besides jiu jitsu and karate, Boudreau also teaches Muay Thai boxing, submission wrestling, kickboxing, as well as fitness and conditioning classes for kids and adults.

Curling: It’s a privilege continued from page 45

said Cotter. “The kids are the future of the sport, and I’m happy to be able to help.” Sawatsky couldn’t agree more with his skip. “Retaining these kids, keeping them in the sport, that’s what our sport needs,” said Sawatsky. “I know from experience that getting more experience is so huge in getting better. There’s so many good young players out there and the way to keep up is to be on the ice as much as possible.” For Jackie Daniels, that means getting her daughters to the rink for an average of 10 hours a week. “It’s been seven years of curling for the girls, and it’s great they can be out on the ice with the professionals,” said Jackie. “Think about it. If you’re a hockey player, can you go out and play with Gretzky? The girls get to go and learn from a Kevin Martin, and they really are trying to be help-

ful to the kids.” Sawatsky agrees, saying he remembers being a kid and curling beside legends such as Ed Lukowich, Pat Ryan and Rick Folk. “Curlers, we’re known as being pretty down to earth so the mentorship thing, that’s always been a part of our sport,” said Sawatsky. “The reality is 95 to 97 per cent of curlers are doing it for the social or amateur aspects, but for the three to five per cent who want to get to the upper levels, a chance to help them get there is a privilege. … I always love working with the juniors and as long as I have the time to do it, I will.” Martin lamented the fact he couldn’t be on the ice with the juniors. “This is a great new addition to this tournament,” said Martin. “Bringing juniors into the fold and giving them an event to shine in, that’s something I can really appreciate.” alau@burnabynow.com

Middie named player of week

Clan hockey to help cancer society The Simon Fraser University club hockey team will donate a portion of this week’s ticket sales to the Canadian Cancer Society. The Clan take on Trinity Western University in a B.C. Intercollegiate league matchup at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Saturday at 7 p.m. The cancer society will be at the game handing out gifts and providing information on how lifestyle changes can make a differ-

ence in good health. SFU is off to a strong start in league play, cruising to a 12-1 victory over the University of Victoria in a rematch of last season’s championship game. League scoring leader Ben Van Lare garnered five points, including two goals, to be named the game’s first star. Kale Wild and Jesse Mysiorek also tallied a pair apiece, while Chris Hoe and Jono Ceci both contributed four-point outings.

BURNABY HOCKEY BRIEFS Two Burnaby hockey players were the stars for the South Carolina Stingrays in opening East Coast Hockey League play. First star Marcello Ranallo scored two goals, including the eventual game-winner, to lead the ‘Rays to a 5-2 win over the Gwinnett Gladiators on Oct. 7. Tyler McNeely, who played last season for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American league, was the third star with a pair of assists on Ranallo’s goals. McNeely also had a goal and one assist in a later 4-3 victory over the Gladiators.

Goalie stars in win/loss for birds

Brian Stewart was named a game star in two of his first three game starts for the Bakersfield Condors. The Burnaby goalie blanked the Stockton Thunder 4-0 in his East Coast Hockey League start earlier this month before being named a third star following a 3-2 loss against the Las Vegas Wranglers on Oct. 14.

A good start: The Grandview Steelers celebrate an early goal in a 7-3 loss to the Richmond Steelers at home in junior B hockey on Sunday.

Steelers sink to Jr. B cellar The Grandview Steelers slipped into last place in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League Tom Shaw conference following a dismal week. The Burnaby Winter Club-based Steelers lost 7-3 to the front-running Richmond Sockeyes at home a day after a 5-1 loss to the North Delta Devils at Sungod Arena last Saturday. Ryan Panichelli of Burnaby helped the Steelers to a 2-1 first-period lead before local boy Anthony Dispirito potted his first goal of the season midway through the middle frame. But that was as good as it got for the

Steelmen. Richmond counted six unanswered goals in the final 30 minutes to chalk up its league-leading ninth win of the season. Against the Devils, Steelers’ scoring leader Nicholas Hermary scored his seventh of the year in the opening period. Grandview goalie Joshua Friesen was named the third star in North Delta. The Steelers travel to Mission for a game against the Outlaws on Thursday. The club is back at home Sunday to take on the second-place Delta Ice Hawks. Game time is 4 p.m.

Simon Fraser University men’s soccer halfback Ryan Dhillon was named the Red Lion offensive player of the week award in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference on Tuesday. Dhillon’s offensive contributions helped the Clan to back-to-back shutout victories over the University of Mary and the University of Sioux Falls last week. The freshman had a fivepoint weekend, earning two goals and one assist over 180 minutes of play. “Ryan has started doing a lot better the past few weeks,” said Clan head coach Alan Koch in a school press release. “He has been playing with the confidence and swagger that we hoped he would bring to the team.” Against Sioux Falls, Dhillon scored back-toback goals 10 minutes apart in a 6-0 win. He also assisted in the 5-0 win over the University of Mary. The Clan offence began the weekend ranked first nationally in scoring.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Romance, pleasure, beauty, sports, speculation and charming kids fill the weeks ahead. You’ll ride a winning streak. Every November is important to single Cancers for the decade ahead, as it is your romantic time, during an interval (2008-2023) that can bring true love (or true enmity, depending on your attitude). If you’re married, promote your children’s talents and creativity: this will prevent their alienation, make them “happy partners” in your plans for them. Tackle chores early week. Wednesday/Thursday bring gentle, mellow love and understanding. Late week, be ambitious. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your home, family, property, security, retirement, nutrition, soul and stomach – all grow in importance over the month ahead. And all create more work (to 2015). It’s a great time to relax, be in nature, take long naps, and grow close to family members. Money’s still mildly lucky (good investments Thursday after 9:30 a.m. PDT). Romance – and your creative and gambling urges – remain intense through mid-November, but balance risk with security, romance with your need for rest. Tackle chores Sunday. Relationships, Monday/Tuesday. Mellow understanding comes late Friday p.m., Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Letters, emails, errands, travel, paperwork and casual friends fill the weeks ahead. These activities will be slower, take more effort than usual, now to 2015. They might also bring you love – e.g., you meet while travelling, or via email/ internet. The month ahead is not hugely important, so relax in your busyness. Your temper is showing on the home front (and will, to mid-November). This is not a good interval to move into a new abode, nor to “test” a lover. (That said, you’re still loved this week!) Relationships, meetings excite Wednesday/Thursday. Sex, money are lucky Saturday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of mysteries begins Monday. Research, be a detective. Some valuable keys, secrets, methods and treasures lie “under the surface.” These will not be quick, spectacular findings, but “entry ways” to slow, steady, stable and quiet growth. Look at the powerful people you admire: most of them are the slow, steady type. For three years, emulate them in money, investment and “power play” areas. Same period, you’ll also be puzzling your way through a new sexual atmosphere. You might want sex less, or see it as a ladder to higher status, or be attracted to an “age difference.” Taurus April 20-May 20: A month of critical relationships starts Monday.You might meet someone (now or anytime in the next two and a half years) whom you’ll wed. This person might be noticeably younger or older than you, or more conservative. (That would be hard to be!) Loyalty will be an important factor; things will develop slowly. Midweek’s romantic. If you’re married, you’ll note (now to 2015) that your mate grows older, yet seems wiser, more full and gentle. Until mid-November, your physical fires/urges burn hot, affecting sex and health. Same period, take care with investments, fire and chemicals. Gemini May 21-June 20: Chores consume you over the next few weeks – you might as well dive in and get them done. They won’t be easy – now to 2015 work will progress slowly, with large jobs, probably connected to your finances or an investment. (E.g., you buy a farm, then have to work hard.) You might wander into hard work through a sexual attraction. (Remember Pinocchio at Donkey Island? Sunday might contain hints of this.) Far travel, legal, intellectual and educational matters fill a sweet, inspired Monday/Tuesday. Be ambitious Wednesday/Thursday. Hopes, flirtations rise late week. Home’s sweet.

Oct. 21 - 27, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The month ahead features money, earnings, buying and selling – and sensual relationships, memory, rote learning, and values. It’s a good time to buy used or sturdy, lasting items – watches, heavy machinery, tools, even land. All these things, from sex to rote learning, will proceed a little more slowly than usual, and at greater effort – still, they offer stability. You’re restless, quick to travel, talk, argue, make friends (to mid-November). You might meet a mate while travelling/writing. Monday/ Tuesday are romantic. Tackle chores midweek. Partners, potentials appear Saturday! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: A month of personal power begins Monday – venture out, seek favours, approach VIPs, take charge of circumstances and people, and start important projects. You’re more talkative than usual – use this to make connections. (Mercury goes retrograde in mid-November, so hurry with those projects – and begin to ease up, be patient, by early November.) Money flows to you and through you – stop the bleeding. Friends remain charmed, love looks happy, promising, all week. Think over those financial, sexual actions: waiting (to February) might be wiser. Romance, midweek! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: A celebratory mood fades. For the weeks ahead, be self-protective, rest and rejuvenate, contemplate, plan, study the situation. Be charitable and spiritual, honour old obligations, and deal with government, institutions and corporate head offices. Your luck in the 2012June 2013 interval comes from relationships, from pleasing others. This week holds secrets, confidential meetings and approval from higher-ups. Your creative and romantic intensity, determination are high to mid-November, but your “presence” is low – proceed cautiously, diplomatically – but enjoy, too!

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your energy and charisma continue high Sunday – impress someone! Chase money Monday/Tuesday – luck rides with you. Monday begins a month of celebration, optimism, popularity, light romance, entertainment, group affairs, and wish fulfillment. In everything you do, realize you are building a new future, and a new social structure. It can take a decade, but you’ll get there. (Now to September 2015 brings the deepest, most significant wishes, future and “social engineering.”) Talk, travel, paperwork and communications fill Wednesday/ Thursday. Head for home Friday eve, Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: You’ve been highminded, idealistic, gently loving, and culturally aware. But the weeks ahead urge you to get practical, to pursue ambitious goals, butter up VIPs and show your skills. Rest Saturday. Your energy soars Monday/ Tuesday – impress someone, start a “career” project. (Monday Best, as your money intuition is high, ideas inspired.) Chase money,buy/sellWednesday/Thursday – Thursday’s better for fashions, luxury items. Chatter, casual friends, errands and paperwork fill Friday p.m., Saturday. Your financial and sexual luck remains high this week. Males befriend you. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: A month of depth and mystery ends; Monday begins weeks of understanding, gentle joys, love, far travel, culture, international affairs, import-export, higher education, publishing and similar idea-related interests. This zone will proceed slowly for the next several years, but it won’t hurt you – in fact, it offers a certain buoyancy or protection. Your thoughts will often wander during the weeks ahead, but be warned: bosses and higherups are short-tempered into mid-November. If you’re alert, there’s more money available. Rest, lie low early week. Your energy soars midweek. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673
