It was double the fun with these chiefs Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Forest Grove resident Don Osborn got a call a few weeks ago from the Burnaby Fire Department, explaining how one of his five-year-old daughters won a draw at Lougheed Town Centre, and the prize was she got to be fire chief for a day. And that’s when Osborn explained the twin situation – there are two girls: Ava and Marlowe – so he asked if they both could be fire chiefs for the day. The fire department agreed, a date was set, and the big day came on Friday, Nov. 9. “The girls were almost speechless. They knew For a video there was some kind of the young of surprise going on,” fire chiefs, go to, Osborn said. “I had them www.burnabynow.com all dressed and ready to go to school, and the truck pulled up, and they were just wildeyed and speechless. It was hilarious.” As part of the prize, the girls were taken to and from school in the fire truck, they got to meet fire Chief Shaun Redmond, and they were both presented with certificates from the department, declaring them honorary fire chiefs for the day. “They (got) to be the stars at school for the day, showing up in the fire engine. The whole thing was really a positive experience,” The NOW attempted to interview the two girls, who were squealing with delight and not quite able to converse. (See our website for a video of their reaction.) Dan Kilpatrick, the department’s chief fire prevention officer, said the Burnaby Fire Department holds the contest every year at a Lougheed Town Centre.

Two at the helm: From left, Ava and Marlowe Osborn, five-year-old twins, won the Burnaby Fire Department draw at Lougheed Town Centre to be fire chiefs for the day.
“It’s just part of the fire prevention week promotion,” Kilpatrick said. “The kids enjoy it. That’s the number 1 thing. It helps in a way to promote fire safety. The kids always enjoy the fire truck. … The action,
the lights, the sirens, it’s always a way to attract the kids and teach them about fire prevention and how to stay safe.” Osborn asked his daughters if they wanted to be firefighters, and they both
answered no, he said laughing. “But it gave them a really positive image of who the firefighters are for sure, it made them very personable,” he said. firstname.lastname@example.org
Auto thefts drop for ninth straight year in Burnaby Alfie Lau
ICBC has just released auto theft numbers for the last 10 years, and Burnaby has seen a 25 per cent decrease for the first six months of 2012 as compared to the first six months of 2011.

In 2003, there were 1,112 Burnaby auto thefts reported for the first six months of the year, falling to 1,068 in 2004 and steadily every year

since. Since 2003, there has been an 84 per cent decrease in Burnaby auto thefts for the first six months of each year. That year is significant because that was when the Bait Car program was introduced to the area. The decreasing numbers are part of an overall trend in the Lower Mainland.
In neighbouring New Westminster, there was also a 25 per cent decrease from the first six months of 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011. The decrease since 2003 is 82 per cent. And in the Lower Mainland as a whole, the decrease was 17 per cent between 2011 and 2012 and 78 per cent back to 2003.

Flu shots now free for kids under five Marelle Reid staff reporter
It’s that time of year again when it gets dark early and people start missing work and school because of the flu. To help prevent the spread of influenza, the Fraser Health Authority is reminding residents the flu shot is free for those at highest risk of severe illness and those who are their close contacts or caregivers. New for this year, healthy children between the ages of six months and five years, and their contacts and caregivers, are also eligible for the free vaccine. “The flu season really gets going in November and December, so we urge everyone to get the vaccine as soon as it’s available,” said chief medical health officer Paul Van Buynder, in a recent press release, noting it takes between 10 and 14 days for the vaccine to become effective. The health authority estimates between 10 and 25 per cent of the population is infected with the flu each year. A person can have the flu virus without knowing it, however, and pass it to someone else who may become seriously ill. About 200 to 300 people in the Fraser Health region – mainly seniors – die each year from flu-related complications, such as pneumonia. “The influenza vaccine is the best protection against influenza illness and its complications and is a safe and effective way to help people stay healthy, prevent illness, and even save lives,” Van Buynder noted. Last year, Fraser Health supplied about 300,000 annual flu shots, and this year aims to deliver 365,000 vaccinations in the region. Free shots are recommended and provided for the following groups: people age 65 and over and their caregivers, children and adults with chronic health conditions and their household contacts, healthy chil-

dren ages six months to five years and their caregivers and contacts, aboriginal peoples, health-care workers, emergency responders, pregnant women who will be in their third trimester during flu season, residents of nursing homes and other chronic care facilities, owners and operators of poultry farms, people who are very overweight
(body mass index higher than 40), corrections officers and inmates in provincial corrections facilities and those who provide care of service in potential outbreak settings such as crew on ships. There are several upcoming free flu shot clinics scheduled in Burnaby at various locations this month with more coming up
in December and January. For a complete list of dates and locations, visit www.fraserhealth.ca or visit www. health.gov.bc.ca/flu. Residents should bring their care card or other government I.D. (such as a valid driver’s licence) and wear a short-sleeved shirt.
MP says feds have mismanaged fisheries Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
The Cohen Commission has released its report on the decline of Fraser River sockeye, and while there’s no smoking gun to account for their diminishing numbers, there are recommendations that the federal government to stop promoting salmon farming. The Conservatives called for an inquiry into the state of Fraser sockeye after 2009 saw the lowest return in five decades. After years of work, Bruce Cohen, head of the commission, presented the final report to the public. “Some, I suspect, hoped that our work
would find the ‘smoking gun’ – a single cause that explained the two-decade decline in productivity – but finding that a single event or stressor is responsible is improbable,” said Cohen. John Reynolds, an SFU professor and the Tom Buell B.C. leadership chair in salmon conservation, was not surprised. “That is what I also felt,” he said. “It’s actually an interaction of several different problems salmon face.” Reynolds testified as a witness in the hearings and reviewed scientific reports for the commission. Cohen’s final report outlined a number of “stressors” on the salmon as potential causes for their decline, but the inquiry

Here & Now
revealed how much is still unknown about those stressors and how they work. Cohen made 75 recommendations for government, and according to Reynolds, management was the most crucial issue. The commission recommended that Fisheries and Oceans Canada no longer be responsible for promoting the salmon farming industry. “As long as DFO has a mandate to promote salmon farming, there is a risk that it will act in a manner that favours the interests of the salmon farming industry over the health of wild fish stocks,” Cohen said. Cohen also called for implementation of the federal government’s “wild salmon policy,” a blueprint for conservation and sustainability of wild salmon.

Fin Donnelly, New Westminster MP and NDP deputy fisheries critic, said Cohen’s report was comprehensive but blamed government for mismanagement of the fisheries. “This is a $26-million study, but what it points out is a legacy of Conservative mismanagement, from their inaction on climate change to the gutting of fisheries,” he said. Donnelly highlighted a number of issues in the report affecting wild salmon: climate change, habitat loss, pollution and aquaculture. He called on the government to implement the recommendations. “They’ve only said they will look. That’s the response I’m getting in the House (of Commons),” he said.

NOW reporter eats smoke and wins two media awards
Burnaby NOW reporter Alfie Lau received two honours in the International Association of Fire Fighters 2012 Media Awards contest. Lau’s story, Fire Ops 101 to test Burnaby politicians, received an honourable mention in the Best News Story for publications with a circulation less than 100,000. The story, which ran in October 2011 and also featured the photography and video work of colleague Larry Wright, finished behind Tom Hasslinger of the Coeur d’Alene Press in Idaho for his story, 48 Hours, chronicling a 48-hour shift with the Coeur d’Alene Fire Department. Judges said: “Lau balances humor to educate readers on what it’s like being exposed to a live fire with extreme temperatures in a simulator, performing an auto extrication exercise and a patient rescue. He learns – most importantly – what it means to work as a team to fight a fire.” The second category Lau won for was for Best Blogs, where he finished second behind Jim Spell of firechief. com out of Vail, Colorado. Lau’s blog postings entitled “Reporter takes some heat” also concentrated on Lau’s Fire Ops 101 experiences. Judges said “Journalist Alfie Lau blogged on video and in print about his experience with Fire Ops 101. Lau talks about everything from the weight of the turnout gear to the challenges each evolution presented.” The IAFF Media Awards received 305 entries in 2012 and winners receive both cash prizes and award certificates and/or plaques. For his second-place finish, Lau receives a $250 cash prize and an award certificate, while his honorable mention garners an award certificate. “This is a prestigious award in firefighter circles nationwide and across North America,” said Mike Hurley, president of the B.C. Professional Fire Fighters Association. “We are very happy (Lau) was recognized for his work writing about Fire Ops 101. It’s a pretty cool honour and very cool that he was recognized twice.” www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

Transit fees on the rise Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Transit users are going to be paying more to board buses and SkyTrain cars in the region as of Jan. 1, 2013. TransLink announced the fare increases in a press release on Nov. 13. “The scheduled increase is part of TransLink’s 2010 funding stabilization plan to support operations and keep the system in a state of good repair,” the release stated. “This plan was approved by the mayors’ council in 2009 and fare changes reaffirmed (by) TransLink’s regional transportation commissioner in April 2012.” Adult one-zone fares will go from $2.50 to $2.75, two-zone fares from $3.75 to $4, and three-zone fares from $5 to $5.50. Concession one-zone fares, for elementary and high school students from five to 19 years old are not increasing, but two-zone fares will increase from $2.50 to $2.75, and three-zone fares will increase from $3.50 to $3.75. Monthly one-zone fare cards for adults are going up from $81 to $91, two-zone cards are increasing from $110 to $124,
and three-zone cards from $151 to $170. Monthly concession fare cards for all zones are going up from $46.50 to $52. FareSaver ticket booklet prices for adults are not changing, but concession booklets are increasing from $17 to $17.50. HandyDart fees are also increasing, with one- and two-zone fares going up from $2.50 to $2.75, three-zone fares from $3.75 to $4, and four or more zone fares from $5 to $5.50. The fares have not increased since 2008, so the increases reflect five years of inflationary costs at two per cent per year, the release stated, adding that fares make up 33 per cent of TransLink’s revenues. TransLink’s last fare hike – about six per cent on average – drew criticism from transit users at the time. “It’s too much,” Rozalia Iszabo, who rode the SkyTrain from Lougheed Town Centre to Production Way, told the NOW in January 2008. “It’s $2.50 here and $2.50 back. I don’t have a car, and I can’t walk at my age – it’s too far,” she said. Burnaby-Edmonds MLA Raj Chouhan also reported that his office received complaints about the 2008 increase.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Reconsider centre layoffs
As always, Nov. 11 is a special day in the lives of so many of us who pause to reflect, remember and thank the courageous women and men who sacrificed for us and gave us this safe country in which we can be free. How noble! How wonderful! Thank you. And yet, I have also learned recently that 90 unionized health care workers who are employed at the George Derby Centre, a nursing home for veterans in Burnaby, B.C. have been given their notice and will no longer be employed as of April 2013. This is a group of residents that have given everything for this country and management believes

that it is in their best interests to take away special and professional relationships with their caregivers, many of whom have been employed with the centre for 20 years. While I understand in times of worrisome economics that Fraser Health would like to save money by abandoning their caring staff in order to hire contract staff, who will have no loyalty or allegiance to the centre, let alone benefits, it is abhorrent to not consult with staff, residents and their families. I work in health care in another province and am aware of the bottom line, but you can never replace a figure on the meaningfulness, attentiveness and kindness of the George Derby staff in their daily work.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR continued from page 6
It has become easy practice in budget uncertainty to lay off trusted staff, but it does not account for the reliability and dependability of long-term staff and the comfort and reassurance that it brings to family and friends. It is time to take a stand and do the right thing – not to disrupt seamless and excellence in care; our continuous thanks to our veterans by allowing them to continue to work with those that they are well acquainted with and trust; and to lobby our governments in obtaining the money necessary to provide the kind of care that we can be proud of. We all saw the photo ops over the weekend with government officials and veterans, but it is not good enough to pat yourself on the back one day of the year. Funding for this centre comes from provincial and federal pockets and we know that there is money in the system to provide care with dignity to our veterans and their families who gave so much to all of us.

Centre decision is cruel Dear Editor:
Re: Families worried about care changes, Burnaby NOW, Nov. 14. I was moved to tears when I saw what you are doing. This is cruel and unacceptable. People are more important than the bottom line. My father was a Second World War vet and, thankfully, he was well taken care of by family until the last few weeks of his life, when he went in to a hospice. Obviously, the long-term staff is like family to your residents. I understand contracting out is cheaper for you but let’s not forget, the contractor is in business to make money so, who suffers? The residents, our war veterans, of course.

And if we do, are we then in effect saying that the Americans presented a bigger threat to Canada’s sovereignty in the 1970s than the Red Chinese do in 2012? If that’s the case, then it’s become a world turned upside-down. China’s agenda is no big secret. It wants to displace the United States as the global superpower, simple as that.

Deal: Part of bigger agenda in which to, ahem, invest. Canada fits the bill. Perhaps all that noise in the ’60s and ’70s was just so much anti-Americanism – after all, back then only the Americans had any real money – and nothing more. If that was the case, then maybe those heady nationalistic principles were not very deep to begin with, and that would be a shame.

honour to train the next generation. That honour, unfortunately, isn’t enough when it means sacrificing family time, seniority, and health benefits for comparable wages and vacation. Now, your government has negotiated a contract that will give hospital nurses more money and better working conditions. They’ll receive a three per cent raise on April 1, 2013. And they deserve it. We’ve been offered nothing, and if it was hard for BCIT to recruit nursing instructors last year, imagine what it will be like now. When you realize BCIT doesn’t top up parental leave benefits for association members, our efforts to recruit the young women who now dominate the nursing profession look ridiculous. Is this really what your government intended? Isn’t this something we should fix? You have the ability to fix it. Let’s talk about doing that.

the essential element of this pact is pure Robert Ludlum/Tom Clancy come-to-life, part of an agenda that calls for nothing less than incorporating Canada into a dependency of and a source of resource extraction for China. This trade deal that Ms. Sterk comments on may be just what we need to appreciate that there are others – both people and regimes – in this good old world of ours with agendas very much their own and not at all compatible with our best interests.

Long game flick premieres Saturday Alfie Lau
It was a little more than a year ago when a group of 40 women played hockey for 10 days at Burnaby 8Rinks to raise awareness about cystic fibrosis and set a Guinness world record. The group, named the Vancouver chapter of the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Partners, succeeded in every way possible,
raising more than $165,000, breaking the longest continuous hockey game record by 65 minutes and raising awareness of the disease to levels they didn’t even think possible. And come Nov. 17, participants and supporters will get to relive that magical time between Aug. 26 and Sept. 5, 2011 with the Vancouver screening party for Lace Bite, the documentary about the world’s longest hockey game.

BURNABY CENTRAL TO OUR GOVERNMENT’S EDUCATION STRATEGY Last month, I was thrilled to have Premier Clark and Education Minister McRae in our community to celebrate the grand opening of Burnaby Central Secondary school. In B.C.’s growing, exciting job sectors, students require more than a simple desk, pen, and notebook. They need cutting-edge facilities, and this new $55.7 million school certainly delivers! Students will have access to a modern electronics lab for technology education, a 250-seat theatre for drama and music classes, as well as community events, a three-bay automotive shop, and a fabulous chef training facility. What is most important about this investment in our community is we’re giving students every advantage as they complete their high school education. I’m proud of what our government has been able to accomplish over the past decade. A strong record of fiscal management and prudent spending is what makes big successes like Burnaby Central possible.

BURNABY RESIDENT STEVEN FERGUSON SHARES HIS THOUGHTS ON THE MOVIE BIZ
Recalling Rocky nights at the Ridge CITY CINEMAPHILE:
Burnaby resident Steven Ferguson has worked in movie theatres in the region since 2005. The current manager of The Ridge Theatre, which is slated to be replaced with a condo development, shares his industry memories with the NOW.
ON MY BEAT
“Madness takes its toll.”
- The Rocky Horror Picture Show
urnaby resident Steven Ferguson has experienced the crazy aftermath of The Rocky Horror Picture Show as head manager of the Ridge Theatre in Vancouver. “It’s something to behold, because they absolutely trash the auditorium with the props, with the rice and the toilet paper and stuff,” he says. “My first time walking in after the show and just seeing the carnage left over was amazing.” Luckily the theatre’s janitor has been working there for 30 or so years and has the cleaning “down to an art,” Steven says. The Ridge, operated by Festival Cinemas since 1978, held its final showing of Rocky Horror on Halloween night. Though the Rocky Horror viewers are messy and raucous, it’s a good crowd, according to Steven. “They don’t mind standing outside in line when it’s freezing cold, wearing just a negligee,” he says. “It’s a very, very friendly, supportive crowd.” Steven’s oddest experience at the theatre was during a Rocky Horror showing, he says. “Last year, we had people who weren’t happy with their seats and wanted to sit together, so they took the couch from the lobby and took it into the auditorium, which ordinarily might be fine but our couch is bolted into the wall and the floor,” he says. “I went up and said, ‘I’ll pretend I didn’t see what happened just so long as when the show ends and I come back down, everything is exactly as it was.’” Lo and behold when I came down,” he adds, “it was as if nothing had happened.” This is the last year for the event as the owner of the building, Cressey Developments, is building a new condo development on the site, with plans to

$20 or $30 for the week, he says. His favourite movies include the Back to the Future trilogy, The Secret of Nimh, Innerspace, National Lampoon’s Loaded Weapon 1 and Memento, he says, but adds the list changes based on his mood. Ferguson has seen a number of changes in the industry since he started, including the push for digital movies. The digital films are much easier for distributors to ship, as they come on little hard drives, and also make producing a film more accessible for independent filmmakers, Steven says. But the image is not as sharp and the contrast isn’t as good, he adds. Some obscure or less popular 35mm films will likely end up sitting on dusty shelves, Steven says, and won’t be converted “until they’re deemed financially viable enough.” Independent theatres face a variety of threats to their survival, according to Steven. Cost-wise, theatres are caught between hefty fee percentages from distributors, high rents, and large electricity bills, he says. “We like to blame George Lucas because Star Wars Episode
1, they basically said to all the theatres, ‘OK, we’ll give you this movie, but we’re going to take a higher cut off the tickets than we have previously,’” he says of the distribution costs. “All the other distributors hopped on board after that.” Distribution companies are very concerned about piracy and working on technology to prevent it, he says, but they’re also making it harder for people to see movies legally at theatres by demanding higher and higher percentages of ticket prices. “They’re honestly kind of like mob families, it’s their way or the highway,” he says. The desire for theatre building owners to build moneymaking developments is a big threat, as well, he adds. “Theatres have the capability of making money, but I don’t think they have the capability of making as much money as a lot of these property places want,” Steven says. The high cost of tickets – as well as add-on costs such as 3D ticket prices or for VIP viewings – mean theatres rarely have people walking by who decide to catch a flick like they used to, Steven says. “It kind of seems like a person needs to be committed,” he says. “We’re not getting anybody who is just walking in off the street. That crowd is basically gone.” Because of the high costs of running a theatre, Steven says, most of the money made comes from the concession counter. While Steven is sad to see the Ridge closing, he says, he adds he is a little excited to see what might come next for him, careerwise.

Burnaby boy crowned Mr. World Canada HERE AND NOW
ormer Burnaby resident Frankie Cena was recently crowned Mr. World. Yes, the Burnaby boy who’s grown up in the community winning debate competitions and talent shows is now representing Canada in a global beauty contest for men that parallels the Miss World pageant. Frankie will compete against contestants from around the world for the Mr. World title, to be announced on Nov. 24 in England. Something else of note: Frankie is no longer a
Burnaby resident. He’s moved to Port Moody, so you won’t be seeing his name as often in our newspaper. He’s also studying at UBC’s Sauder School of Business and will graduate with a business degree in 2013. The NOW wishes him all the luck in conquering the world.
If you’re looking for something different this Christmas, we have two upcoming craft fairs to get some of your holiday shopping done. Head to the Scandinavian Craft Fair on Sunday, Nov. 25. The fair features Scandinavian specialties, arts and crafts, and admission is free. The fair will be held at the Scandinavian Community Centre, at
6540 Thomas St. from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Nikkei Centre is also holding a Japanese craft and bake sale this Saturday and Sunday, from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Vendors will be selling traditional textiles, contemporary Japaneseinspired items, home baking, handmade soaps and lotions, jewelry, hand-knitted items, ornaments, cards and more.

Fun fair for kids
Burnaby mom Ellen Wong is organizing a Christmas Fun Fair on Saturday Dec. 1 to raise money for Vancouver Urban Ministries, which is partnering with World Vision to help Vancouver
Community Centre, 4781 Parkwood Ave.
With Christmas approaching, Burnaby Family Life, a key organization in the city, is seeking donations. The non-profit group, which provides support for families, immigrants and new mothers, needs to buy a new Santa Claus suit for a series of upcoming holiday parties. They also need help with cash donations to cover the cost of the parties. “It is important to note that these Christmas parties serve children and families living in poverty who lack family support, who often lack an understanding of the dominant culture in Canada,” wrote executive director Jeanne
Fike. “Many families are struggling to learn English, find jobs, and will spend Christmas alone.” To make donations, get in touch with Burnaby Family Life by calling 604659-2200. Donations of Christmas decorations are also welcome.
Shairose ShamjiKarmali, owner of Safari Snack House, has been nominated for a Provincial Nesika Award, recognizing achievement in multiculturalism.

Knitting for a cause Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
About 40 to 45 women at Confederation Seniors Centre have been busy this fall knitting hundreds of scarves, toques and mitts to donate to homeless people, children in need, and a local transition house.
“We recognize there are lots of people in need in our community, and this is our way of reaching out to help before the weather gets cold,” said Lori-Ann Cornwall, a recreation leader at the centre. The knitted collection was on display at the centre before the items were
donated to Rotary Coats for Kids, Mission Possible, Lutheran Urban Mission Society, the food bank and Dixon Transition Society. Some participating women created 100 or more pieces, according to Cornwall. In all, 805 pieces were donated.

were orphaned. With both parents gone, the children decided to work hard to keep the younger ones fed and clothed until they had all finished school. With better luck, my mom may have gone to university and become a teacher or a nurse. The courage and love shared by my mom and her siblings remain an inspiration. Without their shared efforts, the family would have been separated, and I would not know my cous-
ins. My mom came to the hospital every day when I was 10 years old and hospitalized with rheumatoid arthritis. She’d bring me books and stay the whole day. She was the one to take me to all my doctor’s appointments and lab tests. She would lose sleep watching over me when I was feverish or in pain. My mother had faith in me when I did not. She believed I could do great things if I worked at it. She gave me freedom
to discover my own talents and supported me in nurturing them. My mom inspires me still with the selfless, unconditional love she gave me.

Burnaby kids won’t necessarily recognize the name but they are likely to agree that Mark Bodie deserves an award for his work. Bodie, who won Burnaby Business Person of the Year at the Burnaby Business Excellence Awards last week, is the co-founder of Habitat Systems Inc., a playground and landscape equipment distributor. Bodie, who lives with his wife and two children in Burnaby’s South Slope neighbourhood, started the business with Jeff Musson 17 years ago. “My business partner Jeff and I started it in my converted workshop,” Bodie says, adding the business moved to its current location on Napier Street a year later. “My business partner and I had a vision of growing a business that was Burnaby-based,” he adds, “a business that could grow over time and expand.” The pair did two years of research on the industry and the best manufacturContributed photo/burnaby now ers, according to Bodie, and King of the playground: Mark Bodie started his looked at the local market.

on stage and I love to deliver and perform. I guess that is the dream, ultimately – to perform on an international level.” Getting himself one step closer to his dream, this year Chan competed for and won a three-year contract for the use of a 1715 Dominicus Montagnana violin valued at $900,000, from the Canadian Council for the Arts instrument bank. “It’s amazing to play,” he said of the nearly 300-year-old antique violin. “It’s a one-in-a-million opportunity to be drawing an incredible sound from an incredible piece.” Chan said he recognizes the challenges of being a professional musician; having to ask for sponsorship and the tenuous nature of being paid to perform, but believes a positive attitude and an understanding of how to market oneself, whether as a musician, or athlete or any other type of performer, is the key to success. “Just apply yourself, even if things don’t work out in the short term,” he said. “If you just apply yourself and keep to yourself and stay honest about work or
whatever in your life, things will work themselves out and it’ll be fine.” Chan said the main reason he pursues a career in music is because of what he offers listeners, whether they are sitting in a concert hall, or just walking by his patio door on a summer afternoon. “There was a great quote from a jazz musician I heard over the summer,” Chan said. “I was talking to a professor and this jazz musician told him one time, he asked him, ‘Why do you do music?’ and he said, ‘To ease the suffering.’ You know, life is not always going to be up, it’s not always going to be great, especially with the economy right now – a lot of people are suffering – but you know, it’s almost pain relief. That’s what people turn to art for.” And what better example than Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, which ends with the well-known ‘Ode To Joy’?

Healthy feeding practices for pets Back in the day, pets were fed what we ate. With changing times, research and an increase in the number of feeding options for pets – more and more, our pets eat what we believe in. The common feeding practices that I currently recommend include kibble food, canned diets, and balanced home-cooked diets. And then, there is this recent fad of feeding raw diets to dogs. The idea of raw may sound similar to the push towards organic foods, going green, spending time out in the sun, or being closer to nature, etc. But are raw diets for pets really the answer to making them healthier in the long term? Raw diets have become popular mainly due to anecdotal reports on the internet and from some pet owners hearsay that dogs feel and look better while on them. While I am always happy to hear about or see a happy and good looking pet, it is important to keep in mind the long-term health of each and every individual pet. Proponents of raw feeding for pets like to believe that they are feeding their dogs what they would eat in the wild. But Shadow or Bella are not living in the wild anymore, are they? They share our beds with us, lick our faces, and spend time with our new-borns, whose immune system may
just be kicking in. And they live to be 12 to 15 years… more often than they did 20 years ago (when they still were not living in the wild). Feral dogs tend to live a much shorter life. The position of the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is quite reflective of why raw diets are not recommended for pets. The CVMA website states that “there is evidence of potential health risks for pets fed raw meat based diets and for humans in contact with such pets”. These hazards include bacteria like salmonella in raw meat, which may persist in the dogs’ immediate environment (our homes), potential for zoonotic infections too in-contact humans, and potential gastric obstructions from undigested bone or broken teeth. An unbalanced diet may damage the long-term health of dogs if given for an extended period. Recently, the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) has joined the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) in taking a stand against raw food diets for pets as well. The reason for such distinguished associations taking this stance on the issue of pet foods is the lack of documented scientific evidence in favour of feeding raw and its perceived benefits. There is also the concern of lack of regulations for raw pet food manufacturers. As things stand, anyone can just start a raw company out of their kitchen (or garage), and that is a worrisome sign. In practice, I like to take the time and effort to educate pet owners regarding healthy feeding practices for pets, because educated pet owners make better decisions. I prefer to feed pets balanced diets (which may include home-cooked, under a veterinarian’s supervision) as opposed to a diet that has no scientific evidence of benefits over other options. Our homes and veterinary clinics may not be the best place to start a “research project” to evaluate how a dog would do on an unproven diet. Remember, the popular choice may not always be the right choice. – Jangi Bajwa, DVM Hastings Veterinary Hospital

“Ricki” is a lovely, little lady that was found homeless at Burnaby Lake. Luckily, a Good Samaritan discovered her living under a shed. She was sweet, friendly and affectionate from the get go. She LOVES receiving pets all over her body as well as, scratches around her ears, head and chin. She will even bunt at your hand asking for more. She tolerates being picked up and cuddled but not other cats. She wants all the attention for herself and she deserves it!
“Bella” is one special, special needs lady! She’s friendly, gentle and sweet with humans but has the need to be with them all the time due to her separation anxiety. She shows them nothing but love and appreciation. Her bond is so strong that any time away from her guardian(s) is so stressful, Bella can become destructive. She should be introduced slowly to dogs and rewarded for relaxed behaviour and play. She would be best suited for a country life with a family that doesn’t have to leave her alone. She can be a bit nervous in certain new situations. Ongoing socialization is recommended. She knows her basic obedience and it’s very important to provide Bella with lots of walks, runs and free play.

“Kitty” has been living the shelter life since August and was transferred from Chilliwack to Burnaby in hopes of ﬁnding a home he so deserves. He instantly became a favourite of the staff and volunteers due to his laid back and gentle personality. He is a friendly, social and engaging cat. Kitty LOVES attention and has a funny meow to get it. He’s a senior but still active and in good condition. Kitty is an absolute love bug just waiting for a special family wanting to give this mature feline a comfortable retirement home.

When Chester ﬁrst arrived as a stray, Chester was a highly excitable teenager. Staff and volunteers have been working on his behaviours now say he is one of the nicest dogs they’ve ever met. He is gentle, affectionate, well mannered, doesn’t pull and takes his treats gently etc. He knows sit, down, heels well on leash. His guardian however needs to be experienced in handling the larger breed of dogs. Chester is an active dog that will beneﬁt living with an active owner(s). Due to his excitability, it’s best Chester live with adults only and no other pets. Chester has fast become one of our favourites, he LOVES to be with his humans and is so eager to please!

“Buttons” was found by a Good Sam after she was likely illegally abandoned in a local park. Why anyone would do that with Buttons we’ll never know. What we do that is that she is an absolute love. She loves to be with people and will seek out the attention of those passing by. Buttons didn’t know what a litter box was initially but is well on her way in knowing its use. Buttons loves her greens but would love to be in a home even more!

Variety of methods to transplant grapevines GREEN SCENE Anne Marrison
Question: I have a Concord grape vine eight years old and was wondering if I can move it. Or can I cut off a foot-long piece and stick it in the ground? I need a little advice on the best choice. Myra, Chilliwack Answer: Moving a grapevine involves some heavy digging and much pruning of vines and roots. The roots aren’t usually deeper than a foot (30 cm) but they spread four or five feet around. If you’re a muscular type gardener who is OK with strenuous work – or if you have help from someone who can dig a big hole and drag a wide rootball around, then you could certainly get the
whole vine moved. So the choice really depends how strong you are or if you have help available. Grapevines are so vigorous that cuttings or transplanting should result in a live grape vine. Cuttings are easier, but transplanting the big vine would give you more grapes sooner. Late fall planting gives the roots more time to settle in, but I’m inclined to prefer early spring for moving grapevines or starting grape cuttings. That’s because winter sometimes strikes early and hard. Occasionally we have severe cold with outflow winds and no precipitation. This is hard on newly-planted grapes and may kill cuttings. Starting cuttings is non-strenuous and takes very little time. All you need is a stem with three buds: when you insert it into the ground, two buds should be covered by soil while one remains above it. Rooting hormone is optional.
It is always safer with cuttings to take two or three in case of accidents and leave the mother plant in place until you have at least one cutting producing new growth.
Question: I bought a bunch of trees and shrubs (weeping birch magnolia, lilac, roses, burning bush, forsythia) with plans to plant them right away. But now I’d prefer to wait till spring when we can afford to have someone properly plan a garden for us. I’d
love to know if I had better get digging now or if I could steps to protect them now and plant them later. Jamie Jeffrey, Email Answer: You can do it all, Jamie. You can get digging to protect them now, keeping them in the pots so that you have them ready for planting later. The best way to overwinter them in pots is to dig holes deep enough in the soil so that you can
plunge pots and plants into the earth. The level of soil in the pots should be level with the top of the garden soil. Mulching them would give extra security. An alternative method for people who have a greenhouse, which can be heated to above freezing, is to simply plunk the trees and shrubs in there. They will be able to survive the winter in the original pots just as you bought them. They would need occasional watering.
In the days when most shrubs and trees were sold bare-root in fall, gardeners would often ‘heel’ them in – that is, plant them quickly and casually with no extras. Their aim was just to get the roots covered till they could relocate them in spring. Containerized plants in the soil have a better situation because there’s less root disturbance later.

Acura takes big leap
New RDX brings more to the table for 2013 model David Chao
The Acura RDX was always a different kind of a car. Designed to provide great performance and superb handling, the previous generation RDX was perhaps a bit too aggressive in its approach to maximize performance while somewhat compromising comfort and luxury. The turbocharged engine and Europeanlike handling provided immense driving pleasure for an SUV but this dynamic package did not deliver as much luxury value to traditional, upscale SUV customers who were more drawn to softer, smoother riding vehicles such as the Lexus RX 350. For 2013, Acura decided it was time for it to become more mature – luxury style. The redesigned 2013 RDX features refinements ofevery aspect to the vehicle. The exterior lines are softer, the interior is more plush, the drivetrain is smoother and the engine is more powerful, yet more efficient. Most important of all, the new RDX looks and feels much more expensive. Acura hopes these refinements will welcome a whole new generation of young customers into its comfy yet stylish mode of transportation.
As already mentioned, the 2013 RDX’s image is more mature with under-
stated elegance. The smoother exterior lines are partnered with traditionally sensible colours. The design is, generally speaking, much more upscale and gives that luxurious feel that was lacking in the 2012 version. The design is unmistakeably similar to the popular MDX model. Inside, the grown-up design continues with a pleasant combination of curvy lines and flowing elements. The hard plastics that dominated the cabin of the previous model have been mostly replaced by softer more elegant materials. This is probably the single most noticeable aspect of the RDX’s maturation process. The cabin now feels like it came from a car that costs twice as much.
The 2013 Acura RDX takes a leap into a more elegant design similar to the popular MDX.
suspension is softer and smoother, again moving away from the more aggressive nature of its predecessor. The only disappointment is the steering feel, which, while accurate in its ability to track the road, is light and somewhat artificial. It will likely please the average Lexus-type SUV

The revamped 2013 RDX did away with the 240hp, 2.3-litre turbocharged inline four and replaced it with a 273-hp, 3.5-litre naturally aspirated V6 that’s already widely used in the Acura lineup. It’s mated to a new 6-speed automatic transmission which gets 10.7L/100km in the city and 7.3L/100km on the highway, which is a vast improvement over the 2012 number; 12.4L/100km city, 9.8L/100km highway. This is also done with a new allwheel drive system which is lighter to help aid the fuel economy numbers. The new V6 is much more refined cruising around town and handles the highway curves comfortably, though it does not have the sportiness of the previous model. Also on that note, the

Acura: More sophisticated, mature look for RDX in 2013 offering continued from page 31
drivers (which is Acura’s targeted competitor anyway) but it will not steal sales away from BMW or Audi owners who are used to more road feel.
Even though the actual amount of added interior space is not that much, the interior feels more spacious. Looking about the cabin, the Acura meets all the prerequisites for an entry-level luxury vehicle with no overwhelmingly unusual features. All five seats are plush while providing adequate support and comfort. The spacy feel is consistent throughout as leg room and head room is plentiful for the average adult in the rear seats. Acura also refined the RDX’s technology interface. Many features such as automatic climate control, Bluetooth, iPod connectivity and rearview camera remain somewhat similar, but they simplified their use and even added an SMS text messaging function. With the upgrade to the technology package, the five-inch monitor grows to eight inches and gains a navigation system with voice recognition and an improved surround sound system. Fortunately, the more advanced system found in the tech package remains simple and intuitive to use. While the luxuries are nice, the RDX is still a functional SUV and needs to fulfill the utility portion of the title. The rear door opens high, offering sufficient head clearance to the expansive opening. The low floor also aids loading and unloading and its 739 litres of cargo space allows you to carry more than average SUVs in this category. But suppose you need a bit more space, the rear seats split 60/40 and fold down conveniently with tworeleases for each seat; one on the shoulder of the seat and another just inside the cargo area. The seats fold down to increase the space to a generous 2,178 litres.
The 2013 RDX starts at $42,935 with an available Technology Package adding $3,000 to the asking
price. Standard equipment includes four-wheel ABS with EBD and brake assist, front and side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, tire pressure monitoring system with location and pressure indicators, vehicle stability assist with traction control, eight-way power adjustable driver seat, fourway adjustable front passenger seat, heated front seats, five-inch colour information display, dual-zone automatic climate control system, Bluetooth with steering wheel-mounted controls, SMS text message function, and rearview camera. The Technology Package adds an eight-inch LED backlit VGA display, navigation system with Voice Recognition, 410-watt premium audio system, GPSlinked, solar-sensing, dualzone automatic climate control system and power tailgate. Fuel efficiency numbers are 10.7L/100km city and 7.3L/100km highway.
Quality interior materials and the easy-to-use electronics make the cabin a fine place to spend time, while under the hood improvements make the 2013 RDX vastly superior to its predecessor. The 2013 version simply feels more expensive.
The changes to the engine and transmission may be welcome but the new electric steering lacks feedback. Not much else to complain about.
The bottom line
The new RDX represents a marked improvement over the previous model and it now represents a great “luxury value” that could really hurt the competitors’ sales.
Audi Q5: The Audi has been the benchmark of the luxury small SUV segment for some time now and it is reasonably priced too, starting in the low $40,000s. The base 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine has less horsepower than the RDX, 211-hp, but fuel economy numbers are similar; 10.6L/100km city and 7.7L/100km highway. The 2013 model also offers a supercharged 3.0 litre for extra power and performance.
The Audi Q5 is the truly grown-up option for those looking to settle into a luxury small SUV. Infiniti EX35: Starting at $39,900, the EX is cheaper but is also a little smaller (especially in the rear legroom area). It is however more posh compared to the RDX and it boasts slightly better
handling. The 3.5-litre V6 produces 297-hp while using 12.3L/100km in the city and 8.5L/100km on the highway. If cargo space is less of a concern and you desire a more exhilarating commute, then the Infiniti is a notable alternative. Volvo XC60: For those
needing more cargo space, the XC60 comes up trumps with 873-litres of cargo capacity. At $38,950, the Volvo’s starting price is also lower than the RDX, however the base 3.2-litre inline six-cylinder trades a little horsepower with only 240-hp. Also, the added weight hurts the fuel economy
numbers; 11.2L/100km city and 7.8L/100km highway. The only issue is that Volvo brand no longer represents the same level of luxury or performance as other brands such as BMW and Lexus. For more motoring news, check out the Burnaby NOW online, at www.burnabynow. com.

Partnership for Fortius Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Tourism Burnaby is joining forces with Fortius Sport & Health to attract sports events to the city. The two organizations plan to announce they are forming a long-term partnership to bring events to the region at a press conference today, according to a press release obtained by the Burnaby NOW. “We’re here to not only announce a comprehensive new partnership between Tourism Burnaby and Fortius Sport & Health, but to showcase the people, organizations and facilities that are making sport happen in a big way here in Burnaby,” Matthew Coyne, executive director of Tourism Burnaby, said in the release. They are also partnering to support events already planned for the city, such as the Wickenheiser International Women’s Hockey Festival, also known as WickFest, which is taking place this weekend in Burnaby. Another upcoming event Tourism Burnaby and Fortius are supporting is the 2013 Esso Cup Canadian national midget
hockey championships, which is being held in Burnaby next April. The two organizations are creating a “co-branded sport hosting initiative” to promote Greater Vancouver, and Burnaby in particular, as locations for future events, according to the release. They also plan to support local sports groups in bids to host events and build on Tourism Burnaby’s Bid Burnaby Program and Hosting Grant Program. “It’s really about how teaming up on a shared vision for bringing tournaments, training camps, exhibitions, conferences, festivals and other special events to this part of the country, blessed as it is with natural qualities and attributes that are simply unrivalled,” Scott Cousens, founder of the centre and chair of the Fortius Foundation, said in the release. Fortius Sport & Health is comprised of the Fortius Athlete Development Centre and Fortius Institute for sports science and medicine. The $61-million complex at Kensington Avenue and Joe Sakic Way is scheduled to open next spring. email@example.com

It is a question the local businessman has been pondering, and answering, since he returned home from the Governor General’s Canadian Leadership Conference in June. Arondus, who is a senior director with KitchenCraft Cabinetry in Burnaby, was one of 230 members of the conference, which ran from June 1 to 15. The conference is held every four years. “It was definitely a mind-blowing experience,” he says. “They’re looking for young leaders or the next up-andcoming leaders in Canada to be part of it, because then we’re going to come back into our communities and then obviously, shape policy.” The conference began with three days of listening to speakers from the public, business and not-for-profit sectors, including Frank McKenna, deputy chair of TD Bank and former premier of New Brunswick; Linda Silas, president of the Canadian Federation of Nurses Union; and Naheed Nenshi, the mayor of Calgary. It was the green button with “three things” on it that Nenshi had pinned to his lapel, to remind himself to do three things a day for his community, that got Arondus thinking about the steps he himself could take. The focus of the conference was leadership and sustainability. The members were divided into 16 groups of 16, and each study team went and explored a specific part of the country for more than a week. Arondus’ group
focused on the Greater Toronto Area and eastern Ontario. The team took a bus from Toronto and traveled through Cornwall, Port Hope, Kingston and Ottawa, according to Arondus. Along the way they met with local business owners, politicians and community workers, touring warehouses, food banks and more. One of the concepts that Arondus encountered that intrigued him was tri-sector leadership – companies headed by people versed and active in the business, not-for-profit and public sectors. It was one of the first times I’d heard of it,” he says. “I’ve spent the last 18 years in business honing my skills, and then giving back in the not-for-profit world, but really don’t have much of an understanding of what goes on at our municipal, provincial and federal levels. I only deal with the laws that are in front of me, not really knowing how as a Canadian you shape those laws either through public and private policy, et cetera.” At the end of the conference, each group had to create a presentation for the Governor-General of Canada, David Johnston, on what they learned about leadership and sustainability. Overall, the thing that hit Arondus the most on the journey was the amount of need he encountered, he says. It changed the way he views government spending, he adds. “From a public sector standpoint, I always had this opinion about government spending,” Arondus says. “I think at the end of the day, I didn’t realize how many people have their hand out for money. And I think I didn’t realize how many layers upon layers of need there are in our country.” Arondus has focused his community work on housing issues for years
and serves on the board for Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver, but he says he is looking at expanding his community involvement following the conference. His three focuses are sustainable, affordable housing; lunches for hungry school children; and spreading the three things message – encouraging people to consider what three things they’ll do for their communities today. Regarding housing, Arondus says it is a complex issue in the Lower Mainland because of a lack of available land and the high cost of housing in the Vancouver area. “I sit there and I go, how is it sustainable? How is raising a family here in Vancouver sustainable?” he says. “Is home ownership a dream versus a reality? Those are the things I think about now.” Now that he is an alumnus of the conference, he wants to stay involved with

STM’s twin pillars of strength Tom Berridge
St. Thomas More Collegiate found a perfect set of bookends to showcase the gridiron Knights’ star-laden past. Senior linemen Dante Vigini and Nico Repole have brought a twin pillar of strength to a stout STM defence that has been known for years around the league for its unwavering conviction to make the tackles. Both six-foot-plus AAA conference all-stars were among the leaders in that category this season – Vigini had a second-best 76 stops, while Repole was close behind with 68 solo tackles. The two were also the runaway sack leaders, combining for 28 quarterback muggings between them, including 16 by Vigini, who was named the All-East defensive MVP. Vigini and Repole also made three and two fumble recoveries, respectively, this season. “In past years, we had the talent aspect, but this season we have the toughness we need to bring us to the championships,” said Vigini. “What we bring every play has a lot to do with what our conditioning coach (Jared Power) has brought us.” “Stopping the run is our main priority, and with our line right now, we’ve been able to achieve that,” Repole added. “With our coaching, we’ve been able to become the hardest working line in the

Bookends: St. Thomas More Knights’ all-conference all-star linemen Nico Repole, left, and Dante Vigini led the B.C. AAA varsity high school football league in quarterback sacks this season. league.” That is good news for STM supporters and bad news for opposition teams, who have had the slowstarting Knights in their cross-hairs on a number of occasions this season, only to fail in key situations to put enough points on the board. And it’s the physicality and speed of Vigini and Repole that have been leading the assault. “In my time at STM, they are the best tandem
of defensive linemen that I have coached,” said varsity Knights head coach Bernie Kully. “The thing that separates the two of them is that they do both a good job against the run and the pass. … They each bring a different skill set to our team, but the fact is that they both are aggressive and play with great energy and anticipation on every snap … and get nasty when they need to be.” Both 200-pounders have
sparked interest from collegiate coaches, and why not? The two senior starters clearly love the game and are the best of friends both on and off the field. “I’d say we definitely have chemistry. We talk a lot. We’re good friends off the field, and it has made us better communicators on the field,” said Vigini. “We’re both having fun out there and when we’re having fun, the sacks just come,” Repole added.
“Every down is a battle in front of you. It’s a sense of achievement. It’s a good thing.” But both young men believe that the best STM has to offer is still yet to be seen. There is something more that motivates them to make this final push into the playoffs a special one – both have yet to taste victory in a provincial final in their high school careers. STM Page 47
Moscrop on its way back to provincials Tom Berridge
The Moscrop Panthers are headed back to the B.C. AAA high school boys’ volleyball provincial championships. The Panthers came from behind to defeat Vancouver No. 2 Magee 15-10 in a third-set tiebreaker to earn a spot back at the B.C. boys’ championships on Tuesday. On Wednesday, the No. 6ranked Panthers hooked their ticket into the Lower Mainland final, sweeping Richmond High in straight sets. The win will pit Moscrop against either Vancouver Technical
Hamber, the team that upset the Panthers in last year’s Mainland final. Although Moscrop is assured of a second straight berth into the B.C. AAA high school championship tournament, there is a big incentive to win a first-ever Mainland banner, said Moscrop team captain Zachary Or. “Our school has never won (the Mainlands) before. I’m sure it’s as close as we’ve ever come,” said Or. “We want to do it for Brandon (Chin). We’ve been thinking of Brandon the whole year – doing it for him.” Chin, an integral part of last year’s Moscrop senior team, was
Mainlands and was lost to the squad for the remainder of the post season. After a close 25-22 opening set against Richmond, Moscrop looked sharp in Game 2, opening on a 7-1 run off the service, including an ace by Grade 11 power J.J. Cross, and fashioning 10 kills en route to a 25-11 win. The Panthers closed out the match with a 26-24 victory. Moscrop played for the Lower Mainland title on Thursday (after NOW deadlines). The Panthers topped pool A with straight-set wins over Steveston-London and Vancouver Tech.
at the Mainlands, taking Richmond to a tiebreaker in its opening pool match. The Vikings served for four match points against Richmond but were unable to close out the game. North also fell in straight sets to David Thompson and Hamber and was eliminated from championship play. The AAA provincials will be held in Kelowna at the UBC Okanagan campus from Nov. 28 to Dec. 1. The 4A high school girls’ Lower Mainland volleyball tournament opened on Thursday at Killarney and Van Tech (after NOW deadlines). The competition finishes up
The Simon Fraser University women’s basketball team finished with a perfect record at the Disney Tip-Off Classic in Anaheim, California last weekend. The Clan completed its third straight win, knocking off No. 8-ranked California-San Diego 61-58 on Sunday. Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe led the Clan with 22 points and nine rebounds. Sophomore Erin Chambers, who was 15for-15 from the free-throw line at the Classic, and Marie-Line Petit chipped in with 15 and 10 points, respectively. A day earlier, SFU defeated West Texas A&M 74-59 on Kristina Collins’ 22-point contribution, including four three-pointers. Raincock-Ekunwe recorded her second double-double of the tournament, scoring 14 points and grabbing 11 boards. SFU opened the Disney Tip-Off with a 69-60 win over 13th-ranked Grand Canyon University. Chambers, who was named the Great Northwest conference player of the week following the tournament, led all players with 22 points, including five treys. Chambers scored a total of 51 points, while also nabbing 15 rebounds in SFU’s three victories. Raincock-Ekunwe added 50 points in the three-game set, while adding a cummulative total of 31 rebounds, nine assists and five steals. Collins was also productive during tournament play, scoring 36 points and dishing out nine assists. The Clan was also named conference team of the week.

Balanced Giants top ’Tips Tom Berridge
The Northwest Giants showed off their team depth following a twogame sweep of the North Island Silvertips at the Burnaby Winter Club last weekend. The Giants outscored the ‘Tips 11-5 over the two games, with 10 separate players registering goals in the back-to-back wins. Sam Curleigh, Jansen Harkins and Eric Margo all had a goal and one assist in Saturday’s 4-2 victory. Todd Cole was the only
Giant to score a goal in both games. On Sunday morning and trailing 1-0 midway through the first period, Cole sparked a six-goal outburst that put the game out of reach for the visiting Island team. Trevor McLean, Brandon Del Grosso, Domenic Masellis, David Begert and Colton Kerfoot also scored goals before the North Island mustered a response. Jarid Lukosevicius, who leads the Giants in scoring and is currently third amongst the league lead-
ers, rounded out the scoring with his 12th goal of the campaign. Jackson Cressey, Quinn Thompson and Anthony Conti also chipped in with multi-point outings for the first-place Giants. The Burnaby Winter Club-based Giants currently lead the 11-team standings with a win/loss record of 13-0-1 and enjoy two games in hand over the second-place Cariboo Cougars. This weekend, the Giants are in Castlegar for a two-game set against the lowly Kootenay Ice.

“It all comes down to character. … This season, we’ve been able to play in the second half. We have to stretch it out. This won’t be enough in the playoffs,” Vigini said. “I believe in all the games we’ve had so far, we haven’t played four quarters,” Repole said. “We’ve only shown glimpses of what we can achieve. … We’ve got to take advantage of the bye week and play with our heart.” And that should be easy for the varsity Knights, who graduate 16 seniors this year, including a dozen who have played five full seasons in the STM scarlet. “We have to play each game like it was our last – every play, every down, every time we touch the ball. We played good in the regular season, now we have to play better,” said Repole. Playing better as the game goes on is an asset that both Vigini and Repole possess in spades, said Kully. “They are always playing, competing and doing their jobs to contribute to our success,” Kully said. “(A B.C. title) would definitely mean the world to us,” Vigini said. “It’s something we have worked for from Day 1, and all the two-a-days. It’s a dream of all of ours.” Trust in each other and amongst the entire team is something real and tangible, Repole said. “Without any one of those players we wouldn’t be able to achieve what we can achieve,” Repole added. “It would definitely be something we would cherish for our whole lives,” Vigini answered. “We just have to show it.” STM will get that chance against the Notre Dame Jugglers in its quarter-final matchup at the University of B.C.’s Thunderbird Stadium on Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: You change focus midweek, from curiosity to understanding, from secrets and research to “knowing.” Your philosophical, compassionate, “we are one” side lifts you to new heights of understanding, new gentle regions of insight. A love affair might lie on the near-term horizon. Travel, education, law or media are strongly favoured late week into late December – these pursuits might lead you to a new affair. Sunday/Monday are hopeful, friendly – you’re happy. Retreat, rest and contemplate midweek. Your energy and charisma soar Thursday eve onward. Start NOTHING new this week. Taurus April 20-May 20: Midweek’s the pivot: on Wednesday you slowly turn from surface relationships to deep, committed ones, or to a split. It’s an all-ornothing time. Luck occurs if you view “secondary results,” follow clues, and patch together events/ options. This applies especially in areas of intimacy, sexual desire, ﬁnances and partnership money, health diagnoses, research and lifestyle change. E.g., an investment might not be obvious, but if you look at what you already possess, or the industry that signs your paycheque, you ﬁnd a good investment. Wishes come true midweek. Start NOTHING new. Gemini May 21-June 20: One last week of delay, potential mistakes and wrong directions or false starts. Start nothing new before Nov. 26. The focus of your days changes midweek, from a past month of work, boredom, and health concerns, to the weeks ahead, which hold new horizons, opportunities, exciting meetings and new faces, relocation potentials, negotiations, contracts, dealings with the public, and “fame.” Sunday/Monday are wise, loving, intellectual. Be ambitious, dutiful Tuesday/Wednesday – you are starting to sense your “new career.” Wish fulﬁllment, popularity, ﬂirtations late week.

Cancer June 21-July 22: A month of pleasure, beauty, charming children and romance comes to an end midweek (Tuesday to Thursday) – a gentle end, ﬁlled with understanding – and a deeper or higher love. Wednesday begins a month of work, duties, dependents’ care, health and nutrition factors. But DO NOT start any new projects/tasks, relationships or ventures before Nov. 26. Mysteries, clues, research – and ﬁnancial or sexual consequences – arise Sunday/Monday. Be wary of making a commitment. Thursday night to Saturday piques your ambition and brings situations of status, prestige. Careful Friday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start no new projects nor relationships before Nov. 26. A month of domestic, realty,security,retirement,foundational and nutritional concerns yields, Wednesday, to a month of romance, pleasure, beauty, expansion, self-expression, speculation and venturesome risk. Take those risks – you’ll be on a four-week winning streak. (But read the ﬁrst sentence again.) Sunday/Monday brings relationships, co-operation or challenge (luckiest Sunday eve/night). Midweek cracks open the door to mystery – and golden answers. Wisdom, gentle love, far travel and education arrive late week. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A busy month ends Wednesday, and a slow, restorative, relaxing, domestic month begins. However, start nothing new before Nov. 26. This week might disrupt your investments or bank account (Thursday/Friday) – there is both an opportunity (before 7:30 p.m. Thursday) and a danger here (7:30 p.m. to Friday morning). Tackle chores Sunday/Monday – success and frustrations mingle. Relationships face you Tuesday to Thursday – this interval is almost wholly good, even magical, but deception or miscalculation is possible where home, family or residence enters. Finances, sex late week.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of money matters and sensual attractions ends Wednesday. The new month will feature paperwork, reports, errands, media and mail projects, travel, casual friends and siblings. There are no huge stakes – so be busy but relaxed. An opportunity can arise to travel afar, be published, teach or attend higher learning, win a lawsuit, or fall in love, even wed. But listen. Libra: start NOTHING before Nov. 26. Until then, till the ﬁeld of the past. Sunday/Monday are romantic, accent pleasure. Midweek brings chores. Relationships, new horizons intrigue late week – be careful. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy remains high, but the accent shifts now from your personal concerns to your money and possessions. In the weeks ahead, chase new clients, seek a pay raise, buy/sell, and pursue, if you dare, a sensual person. (Daring will be the least requirement early: this is a friendly, polite, easy link. The daring part is being sure enough about your future and your desires to commit to this easy, but perhaps mild, bond.) DON’T start anything new before Nov. 26. Early week is for home. Tuesday-Thursday is romantic, creative. Work, health late week – caution Friday morn. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Start nothing new before Nov. 26. Wednesday ends a month of weariness, health concerns, weighty chores and low charisma. The weeks ahead feature high energy, clout, magnetism and effectiveness. Call in markers, seek favours, start signiﬁcant projects (NOT before the 26th). Launch yourself toward a person, partnership, faraway place, fame, public dealings, negotiations, contracts and agreements. Your luck and progress will come through another (others generally) so be charming, eager and opportunistic. If someone gives you an opening, seize it. Love, beauty Friday.

Nov. 18 - 24, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A celebratory air fades midweek, as a month of duty, management demands, health concerns and weariness, begins. In the weeks ahead, be charitable, seek a broader spirituality, and co-operate with government, institutions and large corporations. However, don’t start anything, especially in these areas, before Nov. 26. Chase money Sunday/Monday. Details, paperwork, errands, trips, communications and casual meetings ﬁll midweek. Spiritual, governmental matters worry, but social/love urges inspire you. Domestic concerns need caution Thursday late night, conﬁdence Friday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Pressures ease. A month of ambition and tests yields to a month (starting Wednesday) of friends, popularity, light romance (which can turn deeper) entertainment and optimism. Don’t start anything new (including relationships) before Nov. 26.Your energy and charisma soar Sunday/ Monday (better after 2 p.m. Sunday) – get things done. Chase money, protect possessions midweek. You might be confused about a money matter: success lies in rethinking it from a career perspective (or a boss’s, parent’s). Talk, travel, driving ﬁll Thursday eve to Saturday: take care Friday morning. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: A thoughtful month passes Wednesday, and a new one, of pressure and deadlines, ambition and career, reputation and authority, will begin. You’ll be tested, and your reactions noted. This week, hold to the status quo – start nothing before Nov. 26. (Your thinking’s too fuzzy – though loving – until then.) Rest, lie low and contemplate Sunday/ Monday. Your energy and charisma soar TuesdayThursday. Chase money Thursday eve and Friday after mid-morn – be careful in-between. From midweek into mid-December, travel, law, higher education and cultural venues favour you, bring joy. email@example.com
