In terms of single-family homes of a certain size, Burnaby is the third most expensive place to buy real estate in Canada, according to Coldwell Banker Real Estate. Coldwell Banker released a listing report on Thursday that examined its average active listing prices for four-bedroom, two-bathroom single-family homes in 75 markets across the country between January and June of this year. The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver’s most recent statistics for the month of October differ slightly, though the board bases its findings on a typical property within each market – not a specific size or type of single-family home. Coldwell Banker found that Vancouver’s average list price for that specific type of property was nearly $1.88 million, Richmond’s was $1.18 million, and Burnaby’s was $917,968. Arthur Ng, co-owner of Coldwell Banker Westburn Realty in Burnaby, said the city has been in the top three in the past but this is the first time Richmond has been second. “I would say it’s fairly new in that Richmond was always less expensive than Burnaby,” he said in a phone interview Thursday. “I guess it’s all relative. It depends on Housing Page 11

Beachcombing: The sand may be covered by fallen leaves, but there’s always

The City of Burnaby is upgrading its electrical system and adding an emergency generator at city hall, at an estimated cost of $2.02 million. The generator is being added to keep city computers running during a blackout, according to John Cusano, project manager and Burnaby’s deputy chief building inspector. “We’ve had problems over the years, where a car hits a power pole or a windstorm knocks power lines down, etcetera, so we end up without power,” he said in an interview Wednesday. “It basically cuts out our ability to provide computer services.” The upgrade is being done as the generator is installed, he added. “The main city hall building … still had the original electrical room equipment, which goes back to the mid-‘50s, so it’s a little bit old,” he said. The main electrical room, which houses the transformer and handles the main electrical distribution for city hall, has older equipment and it can be difficult to replace parts, Cusano explained. “The decision was made, with council’s blessing, to not only do the emergency power generator but also to replace equipment that was over 60 years old,” he added. While the project should allow the city to weather future storms and keep computer systems running, it is unclear how city hall would fare in the event of an earthquake. “The city hall building itself, because it was built in the 1950s, is an older building and

Helping hands around the world Burnaby resident travels to Uganda to help povertystricken patients Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

“This is the sort of stuff they don’t have in Uganda,” Joanne Smith says, as she wraps a heated sheet of black plastic around her thumb. Smith is a hand therapist, and this is the sort of thing she makes to help people’s hands heal correctly after a burn or injury. Uganda is far from her home office atop Capitol Hill, but the memories from a recent trip are still fresh as she sits down at her computer and begins flipping through photos. Smith spent two weeks in Kampala, Uganda, sharing her skills at Mulago, the country’s largest hospital. The images look like they’re from a medical text of horrors: burn scars growing like sinewy roots up a dark shoulder, a massive chunk of flesh missing from a forearm, fingers burnt to the bones of a small child who was electrocuted. These are just some of the horrific injuries she saw. “The poverty is incredible,” she says. Smith was invited to Uganda by local surgeons, Canadian colleagues of hers, to help share her skills with hospital staff in Kampala. The surgeons were volunteering with USTOP – Uganda Sustainable Trauma Orthopaedic Program, and were looking into establishing a plastic surgery residency program at the hospital. Smith left for Uganda in late October, with supplies packed, and spent two weeks there sharing her expertise. As a hand therapist, she fashions a lot of assistive devices and splints to help people with hand injuries or burns once they’ve been attended to by doctors and surgeons. She also teaches patients exercises to help them recover after surgery. Flipping through the pictures on her computer, Smith points out some daily hazards in Uganda that bring people to hospital. Burns are frequent, as people cook hot food in open areas, sometimes where children play. Mosquito nets catching on fire from candles is common. So is the phenomenon of throwing acid in the face of a partner suspected of infidelity. Smith said it’s mostly women who come in with these burns, but there are men too, and measures are in place to try to make it more difficult to buy battery acid, to help reduce the number of attacks. All this she explains while flipping through images of women with faces burned off, noses missing, skin shriveled. Supplies in Uganda are scarce, and therapists often make due with what’s available. While Smith works with leather and plastic, her Ugandan counterparts 6

(Magazines are hard to come by and their glossy images are reserved for the top layer of the splint, to try and make it cosmetically attractive, and therefore more valued and used by the person who wears it.) “The therapist tries to make something out of cardboard to keep an elbow straight, which just isn’t strong enough,” she says. Besides the woefully inadequate supplies, sanitary at the hospital is also lacking, Smith points out. There are sinks without soap or towels, or sometimes without faucets. Smith carried her own hand sanitizer. A typical problem with burns is the scarred skin thickens and contracts, contorting the body into unnatural positions, which can lead to permanent deformities that can only be corrected by surgery. Smith can help after the operation by setting the hands and fingers right, so they Hands Page 9

New 23-unit apartment for older women opens in city Alfie Lau

staff reporter

The former Abbeyfield House on the grounds of St. Margaret of Scotland at 1010 Sperling Ave. is now the Elspeth Alley Housing for Elder Women. The 23-unit residence is designated for older women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Support services at the facility will include a 24/7 live-in coordinator, life skills education and training and treatment support. “We are thrilled to be a part of a new women’s-only supportedhousingprogram, especially one for elder women and one outside the Downtown Eastside,” said Janice Abbott, chief executive officer of the Atira Women’s Resource Society. “Elspeth’s is a new and critical resource and we look forward to working alongside the women who will live there.” Abbott said Atira has worked with St. Margaret’s for the past 18 months on how to best utilize the space. In May 2011, Abbeyfield was down to only nine residents and Abbott was asked to help with the management and long-term vision for the facility. As Atira assumed more responsibility for the facility, Abbott and the church, along with the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster, started looking into how the facility could be better utilized. “Abbeyfield’s business model was struggling and we needed to find a better model,” said Abbott. Atira assumed the mortgage for the facility and started working with the provincial government on starting up the Elspeth Alley facility. Atira applied for and received $33,871 in one-time costs from the province to complete capital improvements and for start-up costs. In addition, the prov-

ince will provide annual operational funding of $165,000 for the provision of support services and the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster will lease the land to Atira at a nominal rate for 44 years. As for the nine women at Abbeyfield, all but two have been successfully relocated or transitioned to equivalent or better facilities, according to Abbott. “Many of them are in the Swedish Manor, which just opened in August,” said Abbott. “We have one woman on a wait list and we think we will have her in another facility in January.” And the last former resident of Abbeyfield, a woman in her mid-20s who has a developmental disability, is one of the 23 residents of the Elspeth Alley facility. “We’re very happy that she’s a part of this facility,” said Abbott, who said the other residents range in age from 56 to 70 and the facility has been full since it opened. The residents come mainly from Burnaby, New Westminster and Vancouver. The new house is named after Elspeth Alley, one of the first women to be ordained as a priest in the Anglican Church of Canada and the first woman to be ordained in the Archdiocese of New Westminster. The Very Reverend Peter Elliott, dean of the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster,saidheremembers Alley, now deceased, very fondly, especially the date of Nov. 30, 1976, when she was ordained. “I know she would be humbled and proud to have her name remembered this way,” said Elliott. “She would be thrilled that this is a place where women can live in a place of safety. “This is indeed a good day, as we are providing spaces for people to live. … This is a day to celebrate.” Deb Jack, who serves on Atira’s board, was also

I know this development will have a positive impact in Burnaby for many years to come. “This is a great addition to the community.”

OUR VIEW

Ironically he had hoped to avoid seeing dogs that could not be cared for suffering continued neglect. The sled dog industry – now subject to greater regulation – has much to answer for about how dogs’ lives and deaths turn on bad business decisions. A change making corporate directors responsible for animals’ treatment was clearly overdue. Fawcett will be haunted forever by his actions. His mental health is fragile.

Mindful of the emotions provoked by the case, the prosecutor voiced the difference between vengeance and punishment. It’s a distinction that will likely continue to elude many people. Indeed, some people will always harbour ill feelings about the outcome. But at the end of the day, the justice system did what it could on a sad case for which there was little hope of a happy ending.

EDITOR’S LETTER Pat Tracy

oyce Murray is driven – and that’s not a bad thing. The current Vancouver MP, and former New Westminster MLA, has thrown her hat into the federal Liberal leadership race and those who underestimate her may be surprised. She is surely a long shot by virtue of her western roots, lack of a star name and her somewhat aloof reputation. But her work ethic and smarts are a powerful combination. Murray and I have had our clashes. She once compiled a “report card” on a slew of our editorials, marking them from A to E if they, in her opinion, displayed a bias against the Liberals (needless to say the As were the ones seemingly supporting the Liberals). I found it rather entertaining, but I think she believed it was a powerful argument showing editorial bias that shouldn’t exist. I had a rather more plebian view: if something looked stupid, I railed against it. It is, after all, an opinion. But I consistently give her A for effort and tenacity. And from my perch from the ivory tower of the press, Murray is still one of the hardest working MLAs I have ever observed. She

does her homework and she does her legwork. She also has a seemingly insatiable – almost scientific – interest in uncovering the best way to do things. She seems to approach things as you would hope more politicians would do – not as people pleasers, but as seeing problems with workable, human solutions. As a novice MLA in Gordon Campbell’s government, she toed the party line and ended up on the wrong side of the closure of St. Mary’s Hospital. But that controversy overshadowed the fact that the novice Liberal MLA cracked an NDP stranglehold on the city riding. Yes, to be sure, she got in because the NDP were bungling things, but her coalition building, environmental reputation (an arguable point) and – yes, again – incredible hard work, made the difference. She formed an early sisterhood with Christy Clark and both of them suffered, in my opinion, because they bought into the politics as usual unquestioning loyalty to Campbell. Murray should have stood up to Campbell on St. Mary’s and, I believe, would have if she hadn’t bought into the whole political boy’s club thing. She might have been dubbed Saint Murray had she saved the hospital. But she only served in New West until 2005. But witness her learning curve: she moved to a safer riding, kept her own counsel, won her new seat (albeit by a slim

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Is it truth or repeated lies?

Dear Editor:

Re: Environmental issues growing, Letters to the Editor, Burnaby NOW, Nov. 23. Mr. Victor Finberg is certainly consistent in the way he is pursuing his passion of choice. I do not believe that he will be influenced for even a second because of anything I have to say. He has drunk the Kool-Aid and will only relate to what fits in with his preconceived concerns. I will, however, reply anyway. Because when a lie is repeated often enough, the lie becomes the truth. My response will hopefully speak to others who might be coaxed into thinking for themselves and start to question, instead of regurgitating not

so accurate information that is available from the environmental industry. Considering what we must do in order to move the province forward, it is all related and rather important. If Mr. Finberg took some of his own medicine and studied the information available, he would soon find there are scientists, such as Professor Ian Clarke of Ottawa, and many others who confirm the connection between CO2 and climate change. They studied drill cores of ancient glacier ice from Greenland and Antartica. They found that at all times of past global warming periods the planet always heated up first. Then the atmospheric amount of CO2 increased. At one point, the CO2 buildup took 900 years

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Question everything continued from page 6

after the fact before it reversed itself again, long after the next cooling process had set in. This is, of course, just one of many considerations which, however, casts enough doubt on the so-called settled science, that even the presidential debates in the U.S. decided to drop the issue all together, as we all saw. I had a cute story about droughts and rainmakers. But let’s take it down a notch and look at the Al Gore Rainbow and Furnace Company instead. Their furnaces operate on CO2. Same as all other furnaces: the more CO2 we put in, the warmer the house gets. That’s what their salesman, Al Gore, said. As a consumer, none of us would ever put up with what follows: Even though man has never ever pumped as much CO2 into the atmosphere, the average global temperature has not budged for the last 14 years! Is that food for thought? But, on top of that, we still catch as much heck for our CO2 emissions as if they meant something. Our local politicians sit at the table when Mr. Finberg and his friends tell us how the sea level will rise five metres by 2025. They nod seriously and look concerned because it will get them votes from certain people in the room. They then sneak out the side door and order our dikes to be raised by, get this, 30 centimetres. This is based on reality and a provincial flood projection which is meant to be in effect for the next 200 years. If my words ever sound annoyed, it has a lot to do with Mr. Finberg’s claims that “deniers” refuse to accept climate change. In all my books and binders, I cannot think of one voice that would have ever made such a stupid remark. “Deniers” question all statements but especially those who claim they have answers when they don’t. I must also assume that Mr. Finberg’s fat cat looks totally different from mine. His is probably really fat, wears a black suit from the 1920s and a gold chain across his belly and smokes big Cuban cigars. Mine

goes to work in jeans on casual Friday and was hired by Mr. Finberg’s union as pension fund manager. S/he has no money of her/his own but gets a salary that puts her/him into the one per cent bracket Mr. Finberg despises so much. But this person is extremely good at picking companies which will make lots of money for Mr. Finberg’s pension fund without landing anybody involved in jail. If profits are so disgusting, let’s hear how many times he has organized his colleagues and occupied his pension fund office to stop it all, demand that from now on it’s to hell with profits, all their money should go to green projects regardless of the outcome, and if there is no money left for Mr. Finberg in the end, so be it. Most of us know how to make sacrifices. However, most people need an acceptable reason before they can rise to the occasion, such as learning a trade, which will guarantee a job.

Risks not worth it

Dear Editor:

Re: Pipeline is near schools, Burnaby NOW, Nov. 28. I, too, am a parent concerned about the Kinder-Morgan pipeline’s effect on Burnaby schools. Not only are three schools close to the current pipeline – Stoney Creek, Lyndhurst, and Forest Grove – but it also passes within a block of Burnaby North Secondary School, Capitol Hill Elementary School and Confederation Park Elementary School. At the intersection of Gamma and Dundas, it passes by the corner of my child’s school playground in Confederation Park. When this same pipeline broke in North Burnaby in 2007, it sprayed oil on houses over 100 metres away, contaminating gardens and even getting inside open windows. 250 residents had to be evacuated. Surely we cannot afford to increase the risk of this hazard for six of our local schools.

margin) and may now emerge as one of the forces in a redefined Liberal party. What do I think Murray has learned? She’s learned to trust her own thinking. Which is formidable. Her platform includes a plan for the NDP, Greens and Liberals to stop splitting the vote by having the option of conducting runoff nominations in tightly contested races to knock

off the Conservative candidate. She’s the first to take such a stand and should be rewarded for this almost revolutionary thinking in a political system that values “silo” politics over collaboration. She also favours legalizing marijuana and wants to reform the current first-past-the-post electoral system providing fairer representation across Canada. Her Achilles’ heel?

She holds herself to very high standards and often expects the same of others, giving her a public persona of being aloof and sometimes judgmental. She is, I’m sure, probably much harder on herself than any critics could ever be. Will she lead the Liberals? Odds are against it – but, don’t ever count Murray out.

After the generator is installed, the contractor will test it, and the final work replacing the old equipment will be completed, he added. “It’s done in the evenings after business hours so we don’t impact the operations of city hall,” Cusano said. The contractor estimates connecting the generator should be completed six to eight weeks after it is delivered, he added. The project is the result of a system review, which was approved in 2008. The review stated that the electrical substation and main distribution panel were installed in 1957 and were many years past their service life, according to a final com-

As for the project, it is a little behind schedule because the company manufacturing the generator was not able to complete it in the time requested, Cusano said. He expects it to be delivered in the next week or two. “When it arrives, it basically will be hoisted with a crane on a truck and plunked

The communications hub provides data and communication links to the fire stations, recreation centres and libraries, and throughout the city hall campus.” Council approved a $2.02-million contract with J.

Four residents in MLA Raj Chouhan’s BurnabyEdmonds riding will receive a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, according to Chouhan. Chouhan sent a letter to Burnaby council about the recipients, who will be presented with the medals at a ceremony in January. Burnaby Coun. Paul McDonell is being awarded one of the medals. The others are going to Antonia Beck, executive director for South Burnaby Neighbourhood House; Mahjobeh Badakhsh, a human rights activist who graduated from Byrne Creek Secondary last summer; and Wanda Mulholland, a founding member of the Burnaby Task Force on Homelessness. The medals, commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne, are being awarded to 60,000 Canadians who have made contributions to their communities, regions, provinces or territories.

a 750-kilowatt power generator capable of providing full back-up emergency power to city hall in the event of a power failure, according to the report. “It would cover city hall – all of it,” said Barry Davis, the city’s acting director of engineering. “In the extreme event, we would be up and running as a city government.” The City of New Westminster installed an emergency generator in 2007. “It does not service the entire building but only the essential services,” Brian Markel, building maintenance supervisor for the City of New Westminster, stated in an email to the NOW. The generator covers telephone, security and fire services, and the city’s emergency operations centre, he added. jfuller-evans@burnabynow.com

See a drunk driver? Yes, you can call 911 Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

See a drunk driver? Call 911. That’s the message the Mothers Against Drunk Driving organization wants people to take from its Report Impaired Driving, Call 911 campaign. Tracy Crawford, MADD’s chapter services manager for B.C. and the Yukon, spoke to Burnaby council about the initiative at Monday night’s meeting. “The program itself is very simple and effective,” she said, explaining that signs are put up in highly visible areas to educate people that they can call 911 if they suspect someone is driving while impaired. The program has been adopted by more than 70 communities in Canada, including neighbouring cities such as Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody, according to Crawford. So far, the program has been well received, she said. “I don’t think we’re going to find anyone who says, ‘I want to drive on the road with someone who is impaired,’” she said. “And people sure don’t want to get that knock on the door.” But many people don’t know what to do when they suspect someone is driving while under the influence, she added. People who notice others drinking at parties can call 911 before anyone has headed out on the road, Crawford said, as police want to stop drunk drivers before they get in an accident. People can report suspicious behaviour

anonymously, she added. Crawford said she had met with the Burnaby RCMP, and they support the program. The Burnaby RCMP communications officer was not available for questions before press time. Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said the city could work with the organization to get the information out, but there are issues with placing big signs on public property in Burnaby, so they would have to find other ways to educate the public. MADD’s website has information on the campaign, such as possible signs of impaired driving. These include driving at unreasonably fast, slow or inconsistent speeds; drifting in and out of lanes; tailgating and changing lanes frequently; making exceptionally wide turns; changing lanes or passing close to other cars; overshooting or stopping too far before stop signs and traffic lights; ignoring signs and lights; moving too quickly or slowly at signals and intersections; driving without headlights, or keeping high beams or turn signals on; and driving with the windows open in bad or cold weather. People who think they’ve seen a possibly impaired driver should call 911, give the location, vehicle description – including colour, make and model, the licence plate number, the direction the vehicle was traveling in and a description of the driver, the website states. For more information, go to www.madd. ca/madd2/en/services/awareness_cam paigns_campaign_911.html.

what you’re looking at.” Ng believes the demand in Richmond pushed the city into the top three, he said. “So now with the Asian market, Richmond has actually been bumped up because of the demand from Asian buyers,” Ng explained. As places in Vancouver’s westside and Richmond are bought up and prices increase, buyers will look to Burnaby, Ng predicted. “I think that Burnaby, their prices are going to be creeping up as well, because it is a desirable area, and it is close to town and close to the airport,” he said. But while single-family homes of that particular size may be expensive, there are still affordable options, he pointed out. “If you can’t afford a house, you know what, townhouses and condos, they’re not bad places to live in,” he said. “It’s just a matter of, people’s expectations have to change.” The North Shore, which Ng said had previously been one of the most expensive markets, was not included in this report, nor did it appear in the 2011 or 2010 reports. Richmond was not listed in those two previous reports, either.

Coldwell Banker examined the average listing prices for four-bedroom, twobathroom homes on its website between January and June for the report, excluding markets that had fewer than five such listings. The real estate board releases its findings for the region on a monthly basis, and in Burnaby and Vancouver divides the cities into multiple markets. According to the board’s October report, the average price for a benchmark – typical – single-family home in Burnaby was $882,166. The highest market was South Burnaby, at $988,600, while the lowest market was East Burnaby, at $742,400. The benchmark price for Greater Vancouver overall was $927,500. Vancouver came in at $1.45 million, while West Vancouver, North Vancouver and Richmond all had higher benchmark prices than Burnaby. In 2011, Coldwell Banker found that Vancouver’s average price for a fourbedroom, two-bathroom home was $1.54 million, with Kelowna coming in second at $1.09 million, and Burnaby coming in third at $797,455. In 2010, Vancouver was again highest at $1.32 million, Kelowna was second at $916,697, and Oakville, Ont. came in third at $741,638. Burnaby came in fourth at $705,746.

MEET YASAMAN MADANIKIA: COLUMNIST, SPECIAL ED ASSISTANT AND ASPIRING SEX THERAPIST

She hopes people will stop giggling (Warning: The following feature contains explicit sex information and terms.)

Y

asaman Madanikia is a sex researcher with a bachelor degree in psychology from Simon Fraser University. She writes a sex and relationships column for Vancouver’s best-known Persian magazine called Danestaniha and is a regular contributor to Vancouver’s edgy HUSH magazine, in which she criticizes what she sees as our society’s flawed attitudes towards ON MY BEAT sexuality. Madanikia is Marelle Reid planning to get a PhD in counselling psychology and become a sex therapist/ educator and relationship coach, and she also works as a special education assistant in the Burnaby school district. The Burnaby NOW’s reporter Marelle Reid caught up with Madanikia this week to ask her about her unique career. Q: What sparked your interest in sex research? A: When I moved to Canada in Grade 10 (from Iran) I was not educated and no one ever talked about sexuality and sex with me, and when I went through high school I still never got “the talk.” To this day, I’ve never had “the talk,” so it really worried me that these things that can happen to a lot of kids and families – and I was lucky enough to find out stuff by myself and gather information and protect myself – but I can totally see how a lot of kids who never get that sort of information could put themselves at risk of HIV-AIDS and herpes and all these sexual diseases. So that’s why I’m really passionate about studying sex education and sexuality in general. Q: How did you become a sex researcher? A: There is a professor at SFU that’s interested in relationships and sexuality, and I emailed her in 2009 asking her if she would like a research assistant. So I was doing research for her on different topics, and I got really into it, and she suggested we write a paper together. When I wrote the paper (with her), I went to conferences and one thing led to another, and so now I’m passionate and involved in sex research and education. Q: What’s the most common reaction you get when you tell people what you do? A: Usually they think I said it wrong, they’re like, “You’re a what?” and they usually blush, they get very uncomfortable and change the topic. I’m Persian, and I look Persian. When I talk to Persian people the question is “Why?” and I’m like, “Why not?” They get kind of upset like there’s something wrong with me

that I’m doing this, but they don’t see how important it is. Q: What makes you so comfortable with the topic? A: I think people being uncomfortable with it makes me want to do this more. When my friends react weirdly or kind of laugh at it, I talk about it even more. My hope is that there will be a point when we’ll all be so educated that it’s not funny to be a sex educator, a sex researcher. It’s as much not funny as a young kid getting HIV or an STD early in life because we never had the sex talk because we were too busy giggling and laughing about it. That’s why it’s really important for me to be straight about it and start talking about it.

Sex Ed:

Yasaman Madanikia is a sex researcher who writes for Vancouver’s Persian magazine Danestaniha and also for HUSH magazine. The Simon Fraser University graduate plans to become a sex therapist/ educator and further her research in this field.

Q: Your first research paper was on masturbation. Why that topic? A: Because I remember talking with my prof in her office, and there wasn’t much research done on the topic, and when we had class discussions it was one of the hardest topics. No one would ever want to comment. Masturbation is the hardest thing to talk about, like it’s worse than sex, so people are ashamed of it. So me and my prof and all the sexologists agree that masturbation is natural and normal, and we wondered what people think about it and what are their attitudes. Q: What’s the most interesting thing you’ve discovered in your research? A: Well, I guess it goes hand-in-hand with my main research, and that is when we studied attitudes towards masturbation in Hollywood movies, almost 70 per cent of (the characters) either get caught and interrupted as a result of masturbation, or something bad happens to them. So the media is telling all these young kids that hardly get any sex education that if you masturbate, 70 per cent of the time you’re going to end up like, doomed. So this was very interesting and at the same time very sad and scary that the media is showing certain biased pictures to youth and what it can do to people if they don’t know any better. Q: What’s one of the biggest myths about sex? A: The biggest mistaken belief that I’ve seen that’s shared by most young guys 15 to 25 is they believe that if somebody’s genitals look clear, they think they must not have HIV or herpes and they think they can (tell) if someone has a sexually transmitted disease just by looking at their genitals. Well, they don’t know that in a lot of cases (their partner) could be asymptomatic. Until you get tested, you would never know, but they assume they have this magical power to tell, which is really scary to me.

Q: Is there anything else people are not often informed about? A: I think the most important thing is that people think getting tested is “unsexy.” When I ask people, “Why don’t you get tested?” they’re like, “Well, we’re just starting a relationship, so should I say, ‘So for our third date do you want to go get tested?’” But I think what’s important is that the long-term effects will affect them for their whole lives. Q: What question are you most often asked? A: Most people usually ask about masturbation. Guys usually ask about masturbation and if that’s natural. Girls usually don’t ask questions, they kind of giggle and go away. But (guys) ask about masturbation and how you could tell if a partner is infected. Q: What are your columns about? A: I try to write about the most basic things. My first article was about how we need sex education, and I know that you want your kids to be virgins till they get married, but the chances are that they will not be, and that’s why you need to start talking about it. I think another one of my first articles was about homosexuality and how that is natural. So, just the basic stuff that still needs to be communicated.

Q: Your other job is to work with an autistic student who is in Grade 5. What’s it like playing this very different role in your career? A: I like working with children with mental disabilities, but my real passion and where I would like to do research is in sexuality. I feel people take whatever they want from what I do. People who are not comfortable with seeing my literature, like my parents, when they’re talking to their friends, they would never say their kid is a sex educator – they say (I’m) a teacher. My friends who are younger and admire my work, when they have new friends with them and they see me, they’re like, “Oh, this is our sex researcher friend that I told you about,” and they start asking questions, which is fine with me. But I’m young and a lot of my friends are young, too, and when they find out that I’m in the field they ask me a lot of questions, which worries me, because they should already know the answers to those questions. I think, “Oh my God, you’re 25 and you don’t know?” ◆ For more about Madanikia and her work, visit her website, www.yasijas mina.com. mreid@burnabynow.com

Volunteer instructors wanted HERE AND NOW

B

Jennifer Moreau

urnaby’s Community Centred College for the Retired is looking for volunteer instructors to lead classes for local seniors. The college, at 6650 Southoaks Cres., a nonprofit society that offers courses for seniors. The college is seeking instructors for art, photography and computer programs for the winter semester, which runs from January to March, or the spring semester, from April till May. Areas of instruction needed include: Drawing/ sketching, acrylics, advanced water colours, charcoal, photography, Internet and email, Excel

and Word. The courses are two hours minimum, once a week for eight weeks. Volunteers do not need to be certified instructors – just well-versed in their field and willing to share their knowledge. The college’s motto is “learn for fun, teach for pleasure.” To get involved and share your skills, call 604-517-8732 or email cccr@ telus.net for more information.

Boots for Kids

The Rotary Club of Burnaby Deer Lake is hoping to keep more children warm and dry this winter with its Boots For Kids campaign. “What we are doing is supplying brand new boots. We don’t want used boots,” said Rotary member Janice Froese. “We go into the schools, and we will either measure them or have teachers measure the children’s shoe sizes, and then we will go out and

buy the boots.” The campaign was started last year by Froese and Doreen George, a Rotary member and the school district’s community services coordinator. George used to work at Edmonds, a community school with a high number of refugee children. Now in its second year, the Boots for Kids initiative will run throughout the winter. Teachers identify students who need boots, and there’s no shortage of demand. “We’re working in the community schools, and there’s a high number of refugee children, and I guess boots aren’t a priority for them, which is sad,” said Froese. As recently as two weeks ago, children were showing up at school in sandals, according to Froese, and many did not have socks, either. Boots for Kids also distributes toques, scarves and

mitts, knitted by local seniors. The Rotarians are also looking for donations of cash, so they can buy boots for the children. For more information, or to get involved, call Froese at 604-420-0038. Visit www. rotaryburnabydeerlake.org for more information.

Living on the ‘surface’ is a waste of life HEALTHWISE

Dr. Davidicus Wong

H

ow much do we live on the surface of life? Sometimes life on the surface seems easier. Health care on the surface would go for the quick fix. Instead of going to the trouble of making an appointment – or even establishing a long-term relationship – with a family physician, why not just go to a walk-in clinic? You could just treat the problems that pop up as quickly as you can with a prescription rather than the commitment and work of lifestyle changes. You could expect a professional to solve all your problems rather than learning what you need to do to prevent disease, promote wellbeing and actively self-manage chronic conditions. And when you’re feeling old before your time – from the accumulated effects of smoking, drinking, mood-altering drugs, inadequate rest, unhealthy eating and physical inactivity, you could go for the quick cosmetic fix of a tummy tuck, facelift,

Botox or fillers. Exercise on the surface would be similar. You’d just do what it takes to look better. A young man may focus on muscle building without the cardio, balance and flexibility of more rounded exercise regimes. He may even take the shortcuts of steroids to look better on the surface at the cost of his long-term health. Dieting on the surface targets weight loss without providing our bodies with sufficient nutrition. We might choose a high-caffeine energy drink to make up for a good night’s sleep. Relationships on the surface seem simpler. The focus is fun. All of our friends – even our closest – would be Facebook friends with a complete preoccupation with appearances. We’d judge others by the way they look. We wouldn’t share our heartaches or our deepest dreams. We wouldn’t go out of our way to show our commitment or our feelings. We wouldn’t demand the best of one another and say what needs to be said. Knowing ourselves on the surface would be too simple. We would react and give in to the feelings of the moment, seek to satisfy our cravings

and avoid discomfort. We wouldn’t reflect on the origins of our emotions, master them and learn from our mistakes. We wouldn’t grow. Going to school and work on the surface would take less effort. We’d just be putting in the time day after day. We’d wait for the bell to ring and for

the weekend to start. We would do the bare minimum to get by, and we’d get back exactly what we put in. Living our lives in this world on the surface would be simpler, but empty. We would mind our own business, not giving out, away or forward. And when we die, our lives would end

having not touched the lives of others. We would have existed but not really lived, enjoyed the depths of human experience or approached our personal potentials. No one would have really known us – not even ourselves. From this moment on, don’t live your life on the surface.

Dive in … live deeply, and love completely. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician at the PrimeCare Medical Centre. His Healthwise column appears regularly in this paper. You can read more about achieving your positive potential for health at davidicuswong.wordpress. com.

Makedonating a holiday tradition.

F

rom biology labs to being Cinderella’s Prince Charming, then to piracy on the high seas may seem like a big jump in careers, but it just suits young tenor Kwangmin Brian Lee, who’s enjoying his role in the Vancover Opera’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance. Lee says that from his Burnaby school years at Chaffey-Burke, then to graduation from schools in Coquitlam, he never contemplated a career in music, although he was always active in his church choirs. “I was taking third-year Biology at UBC, and not sure what direction I was going to follow, when my sister gave me the last of some vocal lessons she wasn’t going to use. I fell in love with the music,

and started taking more private lessons.” His vocal teacher, Taylor T. Fox, suggested he audition for music schools. That led to music degree at UBC, and a year working in roles with the the Vancouver Opera. Recently he was Parpignol in the La Boheme, the Third Jew in Salome, and sang in the Bard on the Beach’s UBC Opera Evening. He was Prince Charming in the opera’s school touring production of La Cenenterola. He’s working towards his master’s degree in opera performance. “At first, I wasn’t sure how I would find working in a Gilbert and Sullivan role,” he says, “having performed as more serious characters in classical opera. But I’ve really come to appreciate and enjoy it, as there are so many layers to play with in the music and text. “There are a lot of moments when the chorus has a strong presence vocally, taking part in the action. We get to do a lot of comic things on

stage, lots of fun. It’s very classy, witty and entertaining. I only wish I was in the audience to see us perform.” Like all aspiring musicians, Lee works at other jobs to keep financially afloat, managing a retail store and doing accounting. But, he says, while other people call music “a hobby,” he says music is his life, and laughs that his day jobs are his hobby. “Day jobs also help you become a better actor, as you keep seeing and handling life situations.” He is also interested in any kind of theatre or movie work, from performance to stage managing and directing. “The complicated work that goes into making any kind of musical or theatrical production is amazing – very challenging.” His next role is with UBC Opera as the Chevalier in Dialogues of the Carmelites, but until then, he’ll be buckling his swashes with the Pirates of Penzance, which plays at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre from Dec. 1 to Dec. 9.

CELEBRATING

Red Nose ready to go Annual program to help get people home safely during holidays kicks off tonight Alfie Lau

staff reporter

With this month’s announcement that Burnaby and New Westminster are now part of Operation Red Nose, tonight (Nov. 30) is the first night people can use the service to get home safely after a night of celebrating. Operation Red Nose began in Quebec in 1984 and has since spread across the country. The program’s volunteers pick you up and drive you and your vehicle home. The cost for this service is reasonable too: It’s free. Donations are encouraged and certainly appreciated. Since the program runs on weekends throughout December, local organizers are looking for volunteer drivers in both Burnaby and New Westminster. “Volunteers are the heart and soul of Operation Red Nose, and this is such a success story,” said local coordinator Chris Wilson, who pointed out that in the neighbouring Tri-Cities last year, 139 volunteers gave almost 600 rides. “As amazing as that was, we’re still looking for more help. As the awareness grows, the need for more volunteers grows, too.” Wilson said the service has been warmly received in the Tri-Cities, and he expects a similar response in Burnaby and New Westminster. “The main focus is getting people

home safely, but we have a very generous community,” said Wilson. “Last year, our average donation was over $30, which was the highest in the province.” Volunteers come from all walks of life and in the past have included sitting mayors and councillors from the Tri-Cities. “We have everyone from 19-year-olds to 78-year-olds and everyone in between,” said Wilson. “It’s a lot of fun. You meet some great people and you have the satisfaction of getting people home safely.” Volunteers work in teams of three, with two driving the client in the client’s vehicle and the third following behind in their vehicle. “This makes it safe for everyone,” said Wilson. “It’s also fun because you can volunteer with friends, or we’ll create a team for you.” Last year, Operation Red Nose saw 4,241 volunteers providing 7,716 rides with 12 host groups serving more than 23 communities in the province. Volunteers drove more than 188,000 kilometres to help people get themselves and their vehicles home safely. The service will be available on Nov. 30, Dec. 1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22 and 31. Anybody who wishes to volunteer in Burnaby, New West or the Tri-Cities is asked to contact Wilson at 604-341-0241. To use the service, call 778-866-NOSE (6673). For more information, go to www. operationrednose.com. Volunteers are asked to fill out a simple application and have a criminal record check done. www.twitter.com/ AlfieLau

We were in town recently to discuss the proposed expansion of the pipeline. Let’s continue the discussion online. The next discussion phase begins in early 2013. Watch our website for details.

Mazda makes waves David Chao

NOW contributor

Mazda has a long history of innovation, and its recent focus on its new SkyActiv technology is making waves in an industry that’s looking for cars with better technology and fuel efficiency. The SkyActiv technology is now available on the popular Mazda3 models as well. A top-selling car in Canada, the Mazda3 Sport edition is an upscale fivedoor hatchback version of the sedan. Its last complete redesign was for the 2010 model year and the big new stories for 2012 are the introduction of new SkyActiv technologies and lower prices. Trim level prices have been reduced by about $600 to $1,500 across the lineup and the Sport editions are priced about $1,000 above their sedan counterparts. The Mazda3 Sport now comes in four trim levels, GX ($16,895), GS ($19,495), the new GS-Sky ($20,345) and GT ($24,845). The base GX is powered by a 148 horsepower 2.0-litre engine with a five-speed manual transmission, while the GS and GT trims both come with a 167 horsepower 2.5-litre four-cylinder and a sixspeed manual gearbox. An optional five-speed automatic with a distinctively Mazda manual shift mode is also offered. SkyActiv is actually a collection of technology and design advancements that squeeze more usable energy out of every drop of gasoline that goes into the engine. And since most gasoline engines are less than 30 per cent efficient, there’s probably room for improvement. Mazda challenged its engineers and designers to question conventional industry wisdom and adopt a “sky is the limit” mentality … hence the name. So, without resorting to higher-cost electrification solutions, Mazda was able to achieve near hybridlike fuel economy results. The added bonus for

Mazda is that if, and more likely when, it adds electrification features, it will again be ahead of the pack. While the GS-Sky edition of the Mazda3 doesn’t have a complete SkyActiv package (the new Mazda CX-5 does), it still offers significantly better fuel economy, without sacrificing performance. In fact, power output is higher, in addition to the fuel economy benefit. The 2.0-litre SkyActiv engine can produce 155 horsepower and 148 footpounds of torque, and it runs on regular gasoline. That’s surprising as it’s an ultra-high (about 13:1) compression ratio engine (10:1 or less is the norm). When sold in countries (mostly European) with higher octane regular gasoline, the ratio can be even higher and that translates to more power. This engine is mated to either a new 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. My test GS-Sky came with the new automatic, which is a lightweight design with fewer components and a more active lock-up feature that provides better fuel economy.

Inside

My test GS-Sky came with cloth upholstery and manual adjustments on the front seats. The driver gets a crank-type cushion height adjustment to help find that optimal drive position and every Mazda3 comes with a tilt and telescopic steering wheel. Some extra meat on the leather covered steering wheel would be nice, but I did like the selection of controls on the wheel,

Style

Wipe that grin off its face, or something to that effect, must have been a priority order to designers. The front facelift definitely gives the 2012 Mazda3 a more dignified appearance, even though the new front side air intakes in the fascia are fakes. You’ve no doubt seen lots of Mazda3’s on the road, yet it’s a design that still looks fresh and modern as well as aerodynamic. Mazda claims a highly slippery 0.29 coefficient of drag number for the 5door body style.

which are also standard. In fact, the entire driver control layout is cleverly simple and easy to use. No fancy electronic displays, just easy to find and use switches and round dials – now that’s a novel idea! Delightful surprises included wipers and lights with “set and forget” auto settings.

Room with a view: Sleek interior is easy to use and comfortable. Rear seat leg room is tight, as is typical with most compact cars.

Mazda: Still a ‘zoom-zoom’ ride for popular automaker in 2012 model continued from page 33

The bucket style seats also offer good lateral support, but cushioning was on the firm side. Rear seat leg room is a bit tight, but typical of what you get in a compact car.

Secure

The Mazda3 was recognised as a ‘Top Safety Pick’ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, based on the results of its crash tests program. An electronic stability control system is now standard on all trim levels.

Drive

While it may be a cost-conscious compact car, the driver focus and racing connection is still evident when you get behind the wheel of a Mazda3. Clearly someone who is enthusiastic about driving had a major role in its design. There’s a sporty, firmer feel to the suspension than you typically get in this class, and the payoff is delightfully agile handling. An electro-hydraulic power assist system on the steering is very nicely tuned to provide a precision feel and

good straight line tracking. The SkyActiv engine’s pulling power below 3,000 rpm was a little disappointing, but it certainly makes good from that point on. At 100 km/hour the tachometer read just under 2,000 rpm and went to just over that mark at 110 km/h. So, in addition to being highly fuel efficient, it’s also a quiet engine at highway cruising speeds. The new six-speed automatic is an absolute delight to use. Although mechanically it’s an old school conventional automatic, Mazda has removed slip and sharpened the gear changes so that it can match the speed of the latest doubleclutch automatics. While it doesn’t have a “sport” drive mode, in manual mode if you floor the gas pedal it instantly drops down a couple of gears, which is a very nice feature.

Sum-up

Even though the redesign focus was mainly on improving fuel efficiency, the GS-Sky edition of the Mazda3 Sport hasn’t lost any of its performance pedigree … zoom-zoom stays!

names. I recall one gardener who put a hat and scarf on her grumpy gargoyle every Christmas. A gardener who collects wind chimes will likely be thrilled with another one. Rusty metal artifacts are trendy to some gardeners – though others might say they need cleaning and a good coat of paint. Many people put ornamental herons by ponds, partly for interest and a vertical line but also in hopes of scaring away real herons. The heron made of skeletal brownish metal and

rounded stone stomach is especially popular. Planters are another popular and very useful gift. But where the gardener is older, it’s good to remember that ceramic planters are very heavy even when empty. For gardeners with arthritis, ergonomic tools with fat handles are easier on stiff hands. An Easy Kneeler is a magnificent gift for an elderly gardener. This can be used as a seat or upended to become a raised kneeling pad. Whichever

way is up, sturdy metal arms can be grasped to make it easier to stand up from kneeling or sitting. Relatively inexpensive items for a gardener’s Christmas stocking can include reusable Velcro ties, a small LED flashlight for night-time slug patrols, a waxy non-fading grease pencil for labels outside and small, sharp scissors

or pruners for dead-heading. Tulip bulbs are another possibility. Late-flowering ones can be planted even in January and around Christmas, any left-over tulip bulbs are often on sale. Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her via amar rion@shaw.ca.

I

met a gardener once who disliked gnome ornaments. So I was baffled when I toured her garden and spied a gnome peeking out from a thick shrub. When I enquired, she pulled the branches back and revealed three more. It seemed she had a much-loved but strongminded relative who felt gnomes made marvelous Christmas gifts. In giving ornaments, it’s absolutely vital to know your gardener’s taste. When you get it right, it’s a joy to everyone. Many gardeners walk through memories in their gardens as they tell a visitor who gave them this or that ornament or plant. Some people will be no longer with them, but the gift will always remind them. Often natural stone, concrete or woodsy colours which blend into existing paths, rocks and trees are a good fit for many gardens. For instance, someone with a large pond might like a concrete heron, a duck, a frog or even an alligator. All concrete animals can become very beautiful when covered with moss. Some artisans make wonderful rustic birdhouses which are popular gifts sold at farmer’s markets or gift fairs. Gardeners with carpentry skills may create them for themselves. Where gardens have many shrubs and trees large numbers of birdhouses can still look perfectly at home. A plethora of statues, gazing globes and wind spinners need much more careful placement. Some birdhouses are

made for looks rather than function. If it is to be used by birds, a birdhouse should have a clean-out door. The size of entrance holes depends on the varieties you’re trying to attract. Wasps may get there first, which isn’t necessarily a disaster. If the wasp home is high up a tree, no harm is done. The wasps are safely out of the way, and the garden has gained some very efficient predators. Gargoyles can amuse some gardeners, who often end up giving them

A NEW JEWEL IN NEW WEST

ROYAL AVENUE & 6TH STREET, NEW WESTMINSTER

T

here’s a new jewel in the Royal City. Dominion, a six storey low-rise community at Royal Avenue and 6th Street in New Westminster, is designed to refl ect the city’s rich heritage and character. The landmark community from Ledingham McAllister Properties, brings 118 new homes to a neighbourhood already energized by the revitalization of the Royal City’s centre. Across the street from the New Westminster City Hall, Dominion’s brick and warmer toned materials meld seamlessly with the rich tradition of the architecture of B.C’s original capital city. Nearby are many great shopping choices New West

has to offer, like the newly revitalized River Market. Dominion is also just minutes away from the brand new Plaza 88, the funky shops and smart services on Columbia Street and the Big Bend Crossing shopping area on Marine Way. Convenience, too, is paramount for the Dominion commuter; both the New Westminster and Columbia SkyTrain Stations are just blocks away to get you to SFU or Metrotown in just 10 minutes and downtown in 30 minutes. These rentable homes are a great investment in Greater Vancouver’s blossoming real estate market.From studios to three bedroom homes, the interiors

at Dominion invite you with warm and stylish finishing and top quality appliances. These homes follow in the footsteps of LedMac’s successful projects in Burnaby - Reflections, Perspectives, and Brentwood Gate, and bring the value and quality offered in all these landmark communities. A final glance through Dominion’s south facing windows and its spectacular views of the Fraser River and Mount Baker remind you why New Westminster has been attracting newcomers for more than a century. Dominion continues the tradition, with a rare opportunity to bridge the best of the past with the promise of the future.

Carver VB teams to first-time A’s Tom Berridge sports editor

It’s not often that older brother and younger sister have a lot in common. But that happens to be the case with two Carver Christian High School students. Greater Vancouver Independent School boys’ volleyball MVP Curtis Stelzer and Shannon Stelzer, an all-star setter on the girls’ team, are sharing a rare moment this weekend as Carver’senior boys’ and girls’ teams compete for the school’s first-ever provincial A banner. Curtis, a 17-year-old right-side middle, will be looking to help the honourable mention Carver boys improve upon last year’s debut at the B.C. high school championships in Kelowna. Meanwhile, Shannon, a Grade 10 junior, will enjoy a similar experience in Castlegar in a first-ever appearance at the provincials for the Carver girls. Both Burnaby teens also play club volleyball with the local Focus Volleyball Club. “Last year, we were just happy to be there, but this year we want to go and do well,” said Curtis. “(In the wild-card qualifier) we came out like we got to try our best – with nothing to lose. I am hoping for a top-six finish, but realistically a top nine. That’s the hope.” The girls’ team has been ranked as high as No. 10 in the province this season. “This year, we really hoped we’d make it,” said Shannon. “Last year, we had a good team. We got to the zones before being

eliminated.” The development of the school program is largely due to former David Thompson Secondary grad Henry Chung, Carver’s current athletic director and PE department head. “I don’t think our team would be here without him,” Shannon said.

Curtis agreed. “He (Chung) puts a lot of time into us,” he said. “When I started playing, he was not married. Now, he’s had twins, and he still puts in a lot of time. He’s a very good coach.” “We’re trying to develop at the younger level. Your team is as strong as

the weakest link, and in volleyball you can’t hide on the court. You need to develop it,” said Chung, who has focused the athletics program at Carver on player commitment in all sports. As a result, the success of the boys’ and girls’ volleyball teams has had a

positive effect on the 200student eastside Burnaby high school near the border of New Westminster. Having a common interest brings student factions together and builds on what a high school should be all about,” said Curtis. Carver Page 47

NCAA march stopped in semis by Saginaw Tom Berridge

sports editor

Simon Fraser University’s march to the NCAA Division II men’s soccer final was scuttled by the Saginaw Valley State Cardinals in the national semifinal played Thursday in Evans, Georgia. SFU weathered an early opening salvo by Saginaw Valley with Blakely forced to make two saves in the first two minutes of the match at Blanchard Woods Park. Saginaw’s continued pressure was rewarded shortly afterward, when Zach Walega fired his sixth goal of the season into the upper right corner of the Clan net in the 14th minute.

Five minutes later, SFU got an opportunity to tie the score, but Carlo Basso’s shot hit the goalpost. The Clan pushed for an equalizer late in the match. Roman Doutkevich had a shot on goal blocked, while Adam Staschuk’s shot off the rebound was also stopped by Saginaw keeper Jason Wise. Both SFU chances came in the 40th minute. Saginaw Valley opened the second half in similar fashion, counter-attacking off a Clan corner kick in the 51st minute with Lachlan Savage’s 11th tally of the year. Four minutes after that, Zack Cooney caught the Clan, still reeling from the 2-0 deficit, feather-

ing a through ball down the left side to Great Lakes Intercollegiate offensive player of the year, Zach Myers, who finished the play off with his 17th counter of the year. In the 58th minute, Basso stole the ball in the Saginaw Valley back end and scored to close the deficit to 3-1. SFU pressed forward on the attack, but shots on goal by Ryan Dhillon and Michael Winter were either saved or blocked by Wise. Justin Wallace also had a shot on goal for the Clan saved in the 84th minute by Wise. The loss snapped a 15-game unbeaten streak for the Clan. It was the 14th consecutive victory for the 18-2-4 Cardinals.

SFU had a game-high 15 shots directed on goal, but only five hit the target. Dhillon led the Clan in shots on goal with two. “We’re gutted,” said a disappointed SFU head coach Alan Koch. “The history we made today won’t sink in for a while. “Saginaw Valley was the better team in the first 15 minutes. When they scored, they kept on playing … They made it very, very difficult to get behind them. It would have been nice to do it in our first run.” Saginaw Valley will move on to meet South region champion and last year’s national finalist Lynn University in the NCAA final to be played on Saturday.

Simon Fraser University won its first official home stand as a full member in women’s basketball in NCAA Division II. The Clan swept Cal State Stanislaus in back-toback games this weekend, winning 95-52 on Friday before taking the second game 76-46 the following night in Burnaby. Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe posted her fourth and fifth double-double in just seven games to date to lead the Clan. Raincock-Ekunwe led all scorers in the opening matchup, scoring 22 points and 15 rebounds, including 18 of those points and 11 boards coming in the first half of play. The conference preseason pick for player of the year added 16 points and 13 rebounds in the Saturday night win over Stanislaus. “We wanted to come out strong. Last weekend was a bit shaky, so it was good to play well tonight,” said Raincock-Ekunwe in an SFU press release. On Friday, Erin Chambers chipped in with 20 points in 20 minutes of floor time. SFU, last week’s Great Northwest team of the week, also capitalized on the opposition errors, outscoring Stanislaus 33-5 off turnovers. The Clan bench also did its job, outscoring the Warriors 36-13. New Westminster guard Kia Van Laare finished the game with 11 of her 16 points in the second half. On Saturday, SFU improved its record to 61 thanks in part to some big defensive numbers from Rebecca Langmead, who posted a game-high seven blocks along with 10 rebounds and eight points. The Clan hosts its Great Northwest conference league opener on Thursday against Saint Martin’s University in the West Gym. Tip-off is at 7 p.m.

Captain Christopher Hoe and Trevor Milner chipped in with a goal and a single helper apiece. For Hoe, it was his team-leading 13th assist this season. Graeme Gordon made 19 saves to get the win. In last Saturday’s match, Murdoch and Wild tallied their fourth and fifth goals, respectively, this season. Even Kurylo took the loss despite 23 saves in the Clan cage.

MAJOR MIDGET HOCKEY

Giants rocked by Rockets The Northwest Giants held on to first place in the B.C. major midget hockey league despite dropping their first game this season. The Giants managed just one point in a twogame home series against the Okanagan Rockets at the Burnaby Winter Club last weekend. The two teams played to a 2-2 tie on Saturday before the Rockets bid adieu to the Burnaby squad with an early morning 7-3 thrashing on Sunday. New Westminster’s Brandon Del Grosso salvaged a point for the Giants in the opening game, scoring the game-tying goal early in the final period. Eric Margo opened the scoring for the Giants in the first period. Okanagan scored twice, just minutes apart in the middle frame. The Giants’ goalie, Bo Didur, kept his unbeaten 12-0-2 record intact with the draw. On Sunday, goalie Liam Smith had a disappointing

Blanchard led all scorers with three goals and two assists. Brandon Wagner scored the game-winning goal for the Rockets with his league-leading 16th

goal of the year. The Giants remained in first place with a 151-2 record. The Cariboo Cougars moved to within two points of the leaders following back-to-back 70 shutouts over the South Island Royals, while Okanagan improved to 122-4. This weekend, the Giants travel to Chase for a two-game set against the hapless Thompson Blazers.

Carver: High school game about fun continued from page 45

“Everyone can relate to something. There is something to talk about in the hallways. It makes for a better community,” Curtis said. “It’s nice,” Shannon added. “People in your class who don’t play sports at all became excited when they heard we’d done well. It’s our first year, everyone’s going to be all excited.” The girls’ A provincials finish up at Selkirk College on Saturday. “I’m not sure what’s going to happen. We’re not experienced. We have to take

every game as a single game and focus at the game at hand,” said Shannon. Meanwhile in Kelowna, the boys’ A, AA and AAA championships will culminate with the respective championship finals at Kelowna Secondary, also on Saturday. “It should be fun. … Everyone’s excited,” said Curtis, who chose to remain at Carver rather than transferring to a larger high school volleyball program. “When I was younger, I would have probably said yes. But as I got older, I’ve seen AA and AAA teams and we’re at par with them. School volleyball is more about having fun,” he said.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Work and health themes fill the few weeks ahead. Eat and dress sensibly; avoid sudden temperature changes and driving with the window open. If a romance began last month, it remains vibrant. All relationships heat up through Dec. 25, so be diplomatic. You could form a career/ business partnership, at least for a while. Career opportunities abound, though they need a flexible, diplomatic approach. Your energy, charisma remain high Sunday.Chase money,buy/sell Monday/Tuesday. Travel, errands, communications fill midweek. Head home Friday/Saturday – strengthen family ties. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Romance, creative and speculative urges, love of children, beauty and pleasure fill the weeks ahead. Take a risk, express yourself – and your heart – to a lover, child or spouse (or world, if you’re creative). A love affair could start, perhaps with someone you met in a group setting a while ago. (This one might have difficulty reaching a wedding.) Work demands intensify – practice safety. Rest, lie low Sunday. Your charisma soars Monday/ Tuesday – impress someone! Chase money, buy/sell midweek. Errands, calls, visits, news, casual friends and paperwork fill Friday/Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your home, parent/ child relations, foundations, security, garden and nature, nutrition, stomach, soul, retirement – these are featured until late December. Be patient with career and other ambitious areas – a waiting, “gestation” period lasts all winter. Your social life continues to be interesting: friends amuse, but intensity and sexual attraction send their arrows also. Sunday’s happy, optimistic. Retreat, rest and contemplate Monday/Tuesday. Your energy surges midweek – start significant projects, especially in those “home” areas listed above. Chase money Friday/Saturday.

Aries March 21 - April 19: Wisdom and gentle love, compassion, social rituals, far travel, higher education, publishing and intellectual pursuits fill your days. (Or at least tap you on the shoulder, as you can “tune out” such good things by working too hard, being too angry, etc.) Spend Sunday at home or in nature, resting, supervising kids. This night through Tuesday bring romance, creative and speculative urges, love of children, beauty and pleasure. These three days could mark a new relationship opportunity – so could Friday/Saturday. Tackle chores midweek. You’re ambitious, but don’t test higher-ups. Taurus April 20-May 20: Mysteries confront you. Solving them could open a profit – or someone’s heart. Investment opportunities abound – the best of these might involve 1) a partner, or 2) your own earnings picture. (E.g., invest in a machine to help you work; or in your education to get you on a higher earnings plateau.) Relationships with others remain active, talkative and affectionate. A “lust affair” might begin. Beware violating social, moral or legal boundaries now to Dec. 26. Avoid lawyers and lawsuits. Home calls you Monday/Tuesday. Romance or creative urges, midweek. Tackle chores Friday on. Gemini May 21-June 20: Relationships – and opportunities – are front and centre. This is no time to retreat or stand in the background. Be forward, approach people, make friends or chase love prospects. Others will welcome you, be glad to see you – unless you demand, insist or attempt to take advantage. A prospect or opportunity from the past (perhaps one you pursued last summer, early fall – or one from 1999) hovers around you: it will be “ready to go” February onward. (Meantime, dream, plan.) Your yearning for friendship, blocked for some months, will produce results soon. Romance, sort of, late week.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This is a busy but not important month. Chase money this week – buy/ sell, pursue new clients, ask for a pay raise or extra work, etc. Your home holds friction to late month. A relationship might break up. Take this in stride, remain diplomatic, gentle – toward children, too. A legal, educational or far travel project is on hold (until February) but many short excursions will soothe your wanderlust. Your hopes and popularity rise Monday/Tuesday – a light romance might begin. Retreat, rest and contemplate midweek. Your energy, charisma soar on a bumpy Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Chase money for the next few weeks. Add to your possessions. Buy/sell, seek new clients, nudge the boss for a pay raise, find extra work, etc. A spouse, partner or “third party” (or investment) might be beneficially involved – especially if a deal or introduction initially began before last October. Sunday’s gentle, thoughtful. Be ambitious Monday (best) and Tuesday. Midweek raises your hopes, brings popularity and social joys, and might fulfill a wish (perhaps involving travel, communication, friendship – and your work place). Retreat Friday/Saturday: rest, contemplate. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and clout are at a yearly high – you can attract that person who attracts you. A Gemini “mirrors you.” Start significant projects, venture forth, ask favours, meet people, see and be seen. Sunday contains secrets, but it’s unlikely they’ll yield to investigation. A wise, gentle mood flows over you Monday/Tuesday. Love could begin – so could a publishing venture, international journey, higher education or cultural event. Be ambitious mid-week, show higher-ups what you can do. Social delights, popularity, optimism and wish fulfillment Friday/ Saturday!

Dec. 2 - Dec. 8, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Recuperate to late December – rest, retreat, follow spiritual or charitable paths, deal with government agencies, institutions and corporate administrations. You might be asked to join a committee – accept, gladly; it can improve your employment prospects. Invest in warehousing or assembly lines, or a vacation retreat. Protect health and reputation: eat, dress and act sensibly. Avoid sudden temperature changes. Monday (better) and Tuesday bring investment opportunities, lifestyle decisions and health concerns. Mellow wisdom midweek. Be carefully ambitious Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: You’re going to love December. Popularity, social delights, wish fulfillment, new horizons and hopes, new plans and new friends – these “visit” you until Dec, 21. Live for the future this month. This week, remain ambitious: a cohort or boss has important, beneficial information or status to bestow on you. Until the 25th, guard your reputation: DO NOT gossip nor speak with unsavoury people. Tackle routine chores Sunday. Exciting meetings – or love interludes – buoy your mood Monday/Tuesday and Friday/Saturday. In-between, you touch deep regions in sex, finances or health. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Be ambitious this month – but realize your larger and longer-term fortune (through next June) lies in the opposite direction: home, real estate, retirement, “stopping,” security and humility. (E.g., you could quit a 60K job but make twice that on a piece of land.) You still feel enlightened, at peace, this week. Sunday’s for beauty, pleasure and passion: but (temporarily) there doesn’t seem to be anyone to lay that passion on. Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings exciting meetings, new horizons. Sex and $ depths Friday/Saturday: be a detective. Avoid unsafe sex. timstephens@shaw.ca
