FOR THE DISABLED
Program in peril Neil Squire Society hopes the public will pitch in Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
A locally based non-profit organization is asking folks to dig into their pockets to help with a computer tutoring program for people with disabilities. Burnaby’s Neil Squire Society has launched a campaign to raise money for Distance Computer Comfort, a program that provides free computer tutoring to people with disabilities all over Canada. Participants visit online classrooms to learn basic computer skills with a tutor who helps the students achieve their learning goals. Chad Leaman, the society’s director of development, said they received federal government funding for a pilot program only. “But that government office does not offer any program funding – it is up to us to keep it going,” he said. “Computer skills are considered Program Page 5

Toy time: Staff and contractors at the Burnaby Chevron refinery celebrated the holidays with their second annual lunch and toy drive in support of the Burnaby Christmas Bureau. Pictured are Mike Ward, Chevron’s fire chief, Stephen D’Souza of the Burnaby Christmas Bureau, and Jim Gable, the refinery manager. D’Souza told the NOW earlier this month that they were “overwhelmed with the generosity” of Chevron’s inaugural toy drive in 2011. See www.burnabynow.com for our ongoing campaign coverage.
Shuttle shuffles concerns Heights businesses Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Business owners in Burnaby Heights are worried about how TransLink’s proposed changes to the C1 and C2 community shuttle routes might affect their customers. Heidi Dueck, who works at United Optical Dispensary on Hastings Street, said people have been bringing up the issue when they come in. “I heard about it first from a customer who is in Seton Villa and relies on the

to Kensington Square. Weekday service along the new route would decrease from every 30 minutes to every 60 minutes. Route C1 currently travels between the Kootenay Loop and the intersection of Hastings Street and Gilmore Avenue, and route C2 travels in the Capitol Hill area to the intersection of Hastings Street and Gilmore Avenue. The new route would no longer go up Capitol Hill. Dueck said the changes could adversely affect a particularly vulnerable group of
shuttles, and was sharing her frustration over it,” she said. “She literally just looked at me and said, ‘I don’t know what I’m going to do.’” Seton Villa, at 3755 McGill St., is a nonprofit housing complex for seniors. It has its own shuttle, Dueck explained, but it only runs once a week and many residents use the local community shuttles on a day-today basis. TransLink is considering combining and changing its community shuttle routes and extending service along Hastings Street east

Ten-year-old Burnaby girl Katarina Lewis is giving a different kind of present his holiday season – several inches of her long blonde locks for a sick child. “My hair was starting to grow really long, and it was falling in my face, but I thought maybe I should donate so it will be easier to handle, and it’s also for a good cause,” said the Grade 5 student at Stride Avenue Community School. It was a story from Katarina’s former teacher that inspired her to donate her hair to Wigs for Kids B.C. The teacher spoke of a girl who had alopecia, a disease that caused her long, black hair fall out, and Katarina thought ON MY BEAT to that couldn’t be good. Jennifer Moreau “I thought maybe all the other people who are suffering from hair loss should have a wig or something to help,” she said. Katarina also remembered a boy at her school who lost his hair and was ostracized because of it. Other kids wouldn’t be friends with the boy, they were mean, and no one would talk to him. “I was a bit disappointed that people wouldn’t be friendly with him just because he was different,” Katarina said. Besides the hair donation, Katarina is also raising money from friends and family to support Wigs for Kids B.C. She’s collecting donations until Dec. 15, Jason Lang/burnaby now the day her hair will be cut.

Green party activist calls for new hospital, care facility Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Amidst the debacle over the botched Burnaby Hospital consultations, local Green party activist Bruce Friesen is calling for a new hospital and a seniors’ care facility for Burnaby. “I would like to see Burnaby city hall and MLAs unite to press the Ministry of Health to site a (seniors’) building for Burnaby Hospital on the Willingdon
lands,” he wrote in an email to the NOW. Friesen, a retired management consultant, wants a seniors’ complex that includes housing and care facilities, along with a geriatric research centre. The Willingdon Lands are a 16-hectare site at 3405 to 3705 Willingdon Avenue, where the provincial government was considering building a remand centre in 2008. “I also believe that as the value of the seniors’ care village is realized that a new Burnaby Hospital complex can be built
Movers & Shakers
alongside as the Kincaid buildings (at the current Burnaby Hospital site) finally finish their life cycle,” he added. Friesen traces some of Burnaby Hospital’s woes back to a 2000 decision by the NDP to close Cascade Residence, a 205-bed extended care complex at the hospital. One-hundred-and-fifty of those beds were replaced through private-public partnerships. Seniors end up stuck in acute care beds at Burnaby Hospital because there

are fewer long-term, less expensive beds elsewhere to transfer them to, Friesen explained. “Burnaby Hospital could serve seniors coming through its doors in need of residential care at $150 per day, given suitably equipped and staffed beds. Burnaby Hospital must instead spend $475 per day serving seniors trapped in its acute care beds for lack of institutional access to residential care,” he said. “This cost difference

Kevin Kaardal is new superintendent at the helm in Burnaby school district Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
The Burnaby school district has a new superintendent at the helm: Kevin Kaardal. “Our search process has shown that Kevin is the right person to provide the strong educational leadership that we have come to expect in our district. We look forward to Kevin’s increased contribution in advancing a vibrant and innovative environment for all of our learners, staff and community,” said school
board chair Larry Hayes in a press release. Kaardal’s hiring follows former superintendent Claudio Morelli’s retirement last August. Kaardal is no stranger to Burnaby. He has worked at the local school district as an assistant superintendent for the past five years, and he has decades of public education experience in B.C. and Alberta. Kevin Kaardal “I am honoured by Replaces Claudio the confidence shown by Morelli who retired
the board to allow me this opportunity and responsibility, and I look forward to working with such a dynamic team of professionals, staff and partners on behalf of our students,” Kaardal said. The board also announced that Gina Niccoli-Moen was appointed deputy superintendent of schools. Both Kaardal’s and Niccoli-Moen’s appointments are effective immediately.

education and training, which are provincial jurisdiction. Herein lies the irony, we have a program that can reach anyone in Canada, but we’d have to go to each province for funding. We are working on funding within B.C., but we have to raise 25 per cent of the necessary funds – hence this campaign.” If the program was shut down, the Neil Squire Society would no longer be able to provide computer skills development for people with disabilities across Canada, he added. “This program has provided peo-
ple with skills to close the digital divide. Many of these participants are using Google, email, Word, (and) Excel for the first time. This program enables people with disabilities to participate in our digital society,” Leaman said. Almost all of the program’s volunteers are from Burnaby and many of them are students, Leaman added. “When they both are in class, the volunteer can see the participant’s screen, and hear them through computer headphones and microphone. From there, it’s just like sitting beside someone at a computer – you can
show them things, surf the web together, assist in writing and receiving emails, make posters, budgets, etc. The learning goals are set by the participant,” he explained. In an attempt to save the program, the society has launched a campaign, where people can sponsor a copy of Windows 7 and Office 2007 for $12. “We are hoping to raise $25,000 to keep staff associated to this program, as once again another key program is without government funding,” Leaman said.

Re: Is it truth or repeated lies, Letters to the Editor, Burnaby NOW, Nov. 30. Ziggy Eckardt appears to be claiming the position of local champion of the global warming deniers. Well, that is his choice, and history will judge him for it. There is no space in one letter to refute all the falsehoods that a global warming denier can pack into one letter. One of the current favourites is “the average global temperature has not budged for the last 14 years.” That is an obvious misrepresentation of the actual measurements, as anyone who bothers to look at them will immediately see. There are many ways of presenting the measurements. Some of them are legitimate; some are not. For example, you could present the actual temperatures. On the other hand, you could choose an arbitrary baseline temperature and then present the temperature differences with respect to the baseline. Both of these methods are legitimate. Another thing you could do is add annotations right on the temperature graph, and this is often done. For example, there may have been significant volcanic eruptions in certain years, and that would have an impact on the global temperature. Recording that kind of information right on the temperature graph could be very useful in explaining why there are fluctuations in the temperature. A third thing you could do is use a bar graph as opposed to a line graph. The most common approach is to use a line graph,
and then the temperature record looks very jagged. It needs to be understood that the lines themselves do not represent actual temperatures. If the measurements are very close together, then the lines do provide a good approximation to the actual temperature. No matter how you present the actual data, it’s immediately obvious that it’s very noisy – there are a lot of fluctuations. This is not at all surprising for a complex system like the Earth. How do you analyze noisy data? Generally, you start by ignoring the rapid fluctuations and looking for the long-term trends. The most important conclusion available from the entire data set is that the global temperature keeps going up and shows no sign of changing. The second and third most important conclusions are that there are large fluctuations on the 10-year time scale, and that the fluctuations on the one-year time scale are so large that they tell you nothing at all. You need a whole bunch of additional information to try to understand the short-term temperature fluctuations, and for that you definitely have to read the scientific literature. If you look at the most recent decade, which has been the hottest in all of recorded history, the temperature has not changed much, except for the short-term fluctuations, and may even be going down. Nobody is disputing that point. But to look at only the last decade, and to ignore the evidence from the 120 years before that, is called cherry-picking the data, and it is one of the favorite techniques of the global warming deniers.

Budgets: A pre-election plan continued from page 6
next year. This year, revenues grew by less than $600 million (about half of what was forecast), so it is difficult to see where this optimism comes from. In fact, if revenues are down even a small amount from this generous forecast, the budget will be in deficit. Compounding the situation is that there is not a lot of room on the spending side of the equation to make up for any loss in revenues. The election will occur three months after the budget is introduced, so it would be political suicide to engage in huge spending cuts. Of the government’s $44-billion budget, almost $37 billion of that goes to health care, education, social services, debt
servicing and personal protection. Would de Jong seriously cut health care or education, or reduce welfare benefits, or cut back on law enforcement just before an election? I highly doubt it. The government has already cut the low-hanging fruit that it traditionally looks at when times get tight (reducing travel costs, implementing a hiring freeze, etc.) so there’s not much there to have an impact if those rosy revenues turn out to be not so rosy. This all raises the question of why de Jong is even trying to deliver a surplus budget in such lean times. Why not simply wait a year or two until the economy turns around enough to
get those revenue streams moving again with realistic expectations? Then there’s the elephant in the room. That would be the serious credibility problem attached to pre-election budgets. The 2009 budget, delivered just before the election campaign, turned out to be a giant work of fiction as it went from a projected surplus to a huge deficit – a fact revealed only after the votes were counted. So perhaps it is best for our finance minister to fold his hands and wait for a better one. Drawing to that inside straight may not be worth the gamble.

Shuttle: Public consultation coming up next week at Gilmore school continued from page 1
at solutions, but she added it would make more sense to examine when and how the shuttles are used, and to keep them running frequently during peak times. “You can’t leave these people without transportation,” she said. Jack Kuyer, owner of Valley Bakery, is on the transportation committee for the Heights Merchants Association. He is concerned that changes to the routes of the community shuttles could lead to people no longer using the services. “I’ve experienced it here at work, people taking buses are shifting back to cars because every three months, transit is changing,” he said. “Every time there’s a shift, it changes things and upsets the pattern that’s existing.” Kuyer said he has had bakers who are accustomed to catching a bus at 7 a.m., who find it hard to continue to do so when the bus stop is moved. “If you add five or six blocks to your commuting distance, it doesn’t sound like a lot but often that’s what the difference is between people using cars or the bus system,” he said. Both Kuyer and Dueck were not sure if they would
be able to make a public consultation being hosted by TransLink at Gilmore Community School next week because of their business hours. Isabel Kolic, executive director for the merchants’ association, has been in talks with TransLink about the possible changes. The social and economic benefits of the feeder route are essential to the neighbourhood, she told the NOW. She would like the province to invest more in community shuttles, not less, as they are key to leaving cars at home, she added. “Having the shuttle bus was one of the reasons I moved to the Heights,” she said. Decreasing service is not the way increase transit use, Kolic said. “We’re worried that by downgrading the service down to once an hour, we’re going to phase the service out because it will become irrelevant to people’s lives,” she explained. “Life doesn’t operate every 60 minutes.” While the two shuttles are in the bottom 25 per cent of performers when compared with other community shuttles, she said, they are in the top of that 25 per cent bracket. “There’s still potential
there,” Kolic said, adding there is substantial development happening in the area and the local high school, Alpha Secondary, now has a French immersion program and will be attracting more students. The association has heard from a variety of transit users, including students, she said. “We’ve heard from high school students carrying heavy backpacks and musical instruments, and people carrying groceries home up the steep hills of Capitol Hill in the winter time, with the ice and snow,” Kolic said. Kolic would like TransLink to adapt the shuttles to the community that uses them -– focusing on high-use areas, such as the high school, and possibly going north to south through the neighbourhood instead of extending into a completely different neighbourhood near Kensington Square. While TransLink has released information on the route that indicates the shuttles only pick up an average of two or three people per trip, Kolic and Dueck both said that during peak hours, there are many more people using them. But Marisa Espinosa, TransLink’s senior manager
for planning, said the proposed changes are intended to accommodate more people in the area. “It does have an impact certainly on the frequency but it would reduce where C1 and C2 duplicate other routes on Hastings Street,” she said.
There is some overlap with the two routes, she said, and TransLink is looking at how to shift the routes to provide more coverage and also address the low ridership issue. TransLink is holding a public consultation on the proposed shuttle route
changes from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 12 at Gilmore Community School. Residents can also respond to a questionnaire online at www.translink. ca/serviceop. jfuller-evans@ burnabynow.com

Health centre seeks support
Centre hoping to raise another $100k for upgrades
St. Michael’s Centre has been helping Burnaby residents for more than 30 years – and now, they’re hoping that Burnaby residents will be able to help them as well. The centre is in the process of raising the final $100,000 needed to build new therapeutic bathing rooms for its 138 residents. The first $200,000 needed for the project is already in place, thanks to funding from Fraser Health, as well as private donors. One of those donors, the Faccone family, recently donated $25,000 to the project. Marco Faccone, a longtime Burnaby resident and businessman, lost both parents and an older brother to cancer. The $25,000 donation was made in honour of his mother, Anna, who passed away at the care centre at the age of 53. “My momo was a very private person – it meant a lot to my dad and our family that the care team at St. Michael’s looked after her and her personal needs like bathing and maintained her dignity. We knew how
important that was for her,” said Faccone. “We are making this donation in her honour to show our appreciation and to help ensure that others receive the best possible care.” The three older bathing rooms for long-term care residents at St. Michael’s Centre are in in need of major renovation, including the installation of therapeutic hydrosound tubs designed to help enhance wound healing and to protect skin. Operations site leader Blake Armstrong says the renovation will provide residents with a home-like environment with modern safety features and up-todate technology. “We know that St. Michael’s Centre has touched the lives of many people since the doors opened in 1981, and we hope that the Faccones’ generosity will inspire other families to give.” The Tapestry Foundation for Health Care, which raises funds for St. Michael’s Centre, is hoping to find donors for the final $100,000 needed. To find out more, or to make a donation, see www.tapestryfoundation. ca. editorial@ burnabynow.com

Armstrong, senior operations leader at St. Michael’s Centre, with Lucia and Marco Faccone, and their children Tony and Marina.

For more than a decade, the Canadian Red Cross has had its Lower Mainland regional headquarters on Lake City Way in Burnaby. “Everything is done out of this office,” says Christopher Libby, ON MY BEAT regional manager Janaya Fuller-Evans for the Lower Mainland. “All the major Red Cross services and programs have representation here in the Burnaby office.” It is a good spot for the Red Cross, according to Libby. “Burnaby provides a great location for us, in that it is in the metropolitan area, it also is on major transportation routes, there’s access to amenities for staff,” he says. “Also, I can’t overemphasize how welcoming and helpful city staff has been.” There are about 70 to 75 staff members working out of the office, at the international, national, provincial, and regional levels, according to Libby. The number fluctuates depending on who is in the area, and also when the emergency call centre, which covers Western Canada, has been activated, he adds. The first floor of the Burnaby office includes a storage room containing stacks of wheelchairs, walkers and shelves filled to the ceiling with other medical equipment, which is loaned out on a short-term basis to patients in need, referred by health-care providers in the region. A technician works in the back, modifying and customizing medical equipment, such as wheelchairs, for children. The Red Cross has many programs and services beyond its humanitarian and disaster relief efforts, including the health equipment loan service, the children’s medical equipment recycling and loan service, injury prevention programs, and the RespectED: Violence and abuse prevention program. The RespectED educational program, which was launched in Vancouver more than 25 years ago, works with schools and communities to prevent violence, bullying harassment, abuse and neglect. “Right now, bullying has raised its ugly head with very tragic results,” Libby says. “It has unfortunately become a prominent thing for us to be addressing as a community.” The Red Cross trains teachers and adults to deal with issues of violence and harassment, and also trains youth to be peer facilitators, he adds, and works with many school districts, including Burnaby. There is a connection from interpersonal violence to community violence to state violence, according to Kimberley Nemrava, the provincial director for the

Before the major earthquakes in Japan The province and the organization also and New Zealand in recent years, as well
as Hurricane Katrina and other disasters in the United States, the Red Cross focused its disaster relief primarily on less developed countries. While those countries still need more support after a disaster, Nemrava says, the Red Cross is also coordinating efforts with developed countries. “It’s really becoming apparent that the recent disasters increasing in scope and magnitude have meant that even developed countries can certainly be overwhelmed,” she says. The primary catastrophic risks in B.C. are earthquakes and tsunamis, but there are more than 50 potential hazard risks in the province, she adds, including chemical spills, mudslides, flooding and fires. “We have it all,” she says. Part of the challenge in B.C. is the geography, Nemrava says, because of the number of communities that can quickly become isolated, and the impact of potential disasters on transportation and access routes. Geography is a challenge in the Lower Mainland, Libby adds, as is population density. But the diversity of the population here also offers opportunities for the Red Cross to able to coordinate efforts with very strong community organizations, he says.

“It’s beautiful,” said Wanda Mulholland, spokesperson for the Burnaby Task Force on Homelessness. “The art on there is really intriguing and makes you want to look closer.” The project, called Reach for the Stars, is a quilt that showcases the diversity and needs of people living in extreme poverty, said Mulholland.
The East Burnaby Quilters created swatches of the quilt and volunteered at an outreach event for local homeless people. The attendees were invited to use fabric paint to decorate or write on the quilting squares, which were then stitched together into one piece, now on display at the library at 7311 Kingsway.

t this time of year as we prepare to celebrate the holiday season and enjoy the comfort of family and friends, it’s a ﬁtting time to consider those in our own community who may not have the support that many of us often take for granted.
While good causes are in every country around the world, there are some excellent organizations right here in Burnaby doing great work. Giving is a personal choice, sometimes guided by personal experience, sometimes by what we learn from others. What we hope to do in the following pages is to introduce you to just some local causes – their priorities and some of their successes. I can assure you that each organization or group provides very dedicated and much needed resources and support in our community. Our hope is that this will help you and your family select a cause that resonates with you and we encourage you to offer your assistance, participation and if you are able, a donation. Whether you give your time and energy or a few dollars, even the smallest contribution makes a difference and I am always amazed that any act of giving is always greatly appreciated. Let’s make a difference this holiday season and do our part to give back to the community.

Burnaby Fireﬁghters Charitable Society #205 – 6515 BONSOR AVE., BURNABY Our focus The Burnaby Fireﬁghters Charitable Society represents Burnaby ﬁreﬁghters in their mission to raise money for community groups and nonproﬁt organizations. The BFCS knows ﬁrsthand that protecting a community is about more than handling emergency calls — it’s also about helping people who have to deal with health problems, disabilities, poverty, abuse, hunger and other issues.
Our people The BFCS has no paid employees — all assistance comes from a pool of more than 280 City of Burnaby ﬁreﬁghters. This year the society received the Community Service Award at the Burnaby Excellence Awards. It is an award our members treasure as it is something that they all made possible through their own selﬂess donation of time and effort. The charitable society’s board of directors is comprised of volunteers Rob Lamoureux (president), Jeff Clark (vicepresident), Craig McDiarmid (treasurer) and Miles Ritchie (secretary).

Our work in the community
Beyond maintaining a strong presence at neighbourhood cleanups, barbecues, fairs and parades and delivering vital programs to the local community, the BFCS contributes funds to more than 40 Lower Mainland charitable and community organizations such as: Burnaby Hospital Foundation, Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation, St. Michael’s Hospice, B.C. Special Olympics, Burnaby Family Life, “Dry Grad” initiatives at area secondary schools, South Burnaby Neighbourhood House and Variety Club. With no paid administration or costly overhead like some other charities, “Ninety-nine per cent of the money that comes in goes back out into the local community,” says BFCS president Rob Lamoureux. Therefore, “you’re actually getting better value for every dollar you donate.”
The BFCS has set its sights on continuing to grow its Charitable Endowment fund, which currently totals around $800,000. “We’d love to get it up to the $2 million mark,” says Lamoureux. “That would make us a lot more self-sufﬁcient, and we wouldn’t have to rely on the donations as much. Looking at what other organizations like ours have done with similar endowments, once you reach that sort of number, with the money that comes in on the interest it makes a huge difference in what you’re able to do. You’re really not even touching the principle.”
• The 21st annual Burnaby Fireﬁghters Charitable Society Ball will be held at the Metrotown Hilton on Sat., March 9, 2013. By far the BCFS’s biggest fundraising event of the year, in 2012 the gala raised $93,000 - more money than we have ever raised in one night before! • The 2013 edition of the annual BFCS Golf Tournament will again be held at the Riverway Golf Course following the Labour Day Long Weekend in mid-September.
How you can get Involved
As well as accepting donations from the local community, the BFCS is looking to secure a corporate sponsor to help ensure the longevity of its Nutritional Snack Program, through which the organization supplies healthy snacks to elementary schools in Burnaby — a vital resource, especially in low-income areas of southeast Burnaby. “We’d love to get a corporate sponsor who could partner up with us every year,” says Lamoureux. “That is an ongoing cost for us to the tune of $20,000 a year.”

Our work in the community
This year, Burnaby Hospital celebrates 60 years of caring and continues to impact the lives of thousands of people each year. Many believe the patients who come to the hospital only reside in Burnaby, however, there is a large contingent of patients who live in East Vancouver and work in Burnaby, or come to the hospital from different communities in the Lower Mainland for a variety of reasons. The hospital is a long-standing institution in the community that serves everyone – from young to golden.
Burnaby Hospital Foundation is truly a peopledriven organization. From the tireless efforts of the dedicated staff to the time and talent given by volunteers, the Foundation could not accomplish what it is tasked to do without the dedication and commitment of its people.
• Burnaby Hospital sees over 200,000 patients a year. • Burnaby Hospital’s emergency department is one of the busiest in the province, seeing over 70,000 patients a year. • Over 15,000 surgeries are conducted in a year at the hospital. • More than 1,700 babies are delivered in a year at the hospital. • The hospital’s cancer centre opened in 1995 and saw almost 12,000 patient visits last year.
“Burnaby Hospital has always had a strong commitment to the community. The technology we use here is by nature non-invasive. It helps us provide critical information that will guide a patient’s next course of action. Our equipment is very expensive, and we’ve been fortunate to have received great support from the community to help us acquire the latest pieces of technology in order to provide the best care possible.” – Jim Pound, Nuclear Medicine, Burnaby Hospital
• The Slice Golf Tournament – June 21, 2013. This year marks the 27th anniversary of the foundation’s annual golf tourney — an exciting day of golf, contests, prizes and great food with all proceeds beneﬁting Burnaby Hospital. • Rhythm of Life: The 15th annual Run and Walk for Everyone — September 2013. This annual community run and walk raises much-needed funds and support for Burnaby Hospital’s most urgent equipment needs.

Burnaby Family Life 101 – 2101 HOLDOM AVE., BURNABY Our focus
Every year, Burnaby Family Life counsels, feeds and supports more than 1400 children -- many vulnerable children who live in poverty and lack extended family support. Many go hungry; many are learning to speak English, others are learning to adapt to a new culture and lack opportunities that most Burnaby kids take for granted. These vulnerable kids, through no fault of their own, are often the “invisible” amongst us....kids who don’t look different from other kids, but have been wounded by their life circumstances -- some have survived trauma in war torn countries and others have experienced trauma and family problems right here in Burnaby. Lots of kids live in overcrowded apartments; others are running away from abusive situations. We’ve never met a parent who doesn’t want a better life for their children; sadly there are too many anguished parents, for their family is living in poverty--in sub standard housing and lacks family support to provide the kind of opportunities they’d like to for their kids. Burnaby Family Life’s highly skilled and compassionate employees collectively speak 47 different ﬁrst languages and work collaboratively in delivering more than a 100 programs to thousands of families each year. BFL works in partnership with a broad range of community organizations and advocates for some of the most disadvantaged children and families in our community.
Burnaby Family Life takes pride in being welcoming and inclusive to all in a forward-thinking, nonjudgmental and positive way. BFL’s philosophy embraces Appreciative Inquiry; their core values are learning, empowerment, co-operation, respect and integrity.

Elizabeth is an adult survivor of childhood sexual abuse who lost her job as a legal secretary when she ﬁnally succumbed to deep feelings of shame, a loss of self-esteem, and suicidal ideation as she struggled to keep the horrors of her abuse a secret of over 20 years. Elizabeth is now functioning well as a contributing member of the community, having resolved the issues of her childhood trauma as a participant in Burnaby family Life’s educational and counseling programs. Elizabeth says, “Burnaby Family Life saved my life. Now I no longer feel like a victim and recognize my personal strengths in a way that I never did before”. Elizabeth no longer lives in shame and has stopped the cycle of violence that existed in her family for generations.
Burnaby Family Life is excited to announce its 2nd Annual BFL Kid’s Challenge in Partnership with Coast Kinetics. The event will take place on Saturday, June 08, 2012.

Perspiration problem for van-riding musicians CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi
Dear Tom and Ray: My name is Luke, and I am a musician playing double bass with a band based out of Norman, Oklahoma. Our record label has thoughtfully provided us with a Ford E350 van for touring. Recently, we have upgraded our trailer to a lar-
ger and heavier one. While this makes it much easier to transport our gear, we’ve noticed an issue occurring with our air conditioning. With the trailer attached, the AC will cut out whenever we accelerate or travel up an incline. What’s worse, when
the AC cuts out, the heat automatically kicks on, full blast. We’ve taken the van to mechanics a couple of times. They’ve been unable to reproduce the issue, and they say that they’ve never heard of this problem before. It appears to occur more frequently as
the temperature rises and we need the AC more. I’ve considered that we are stressing the engine too much with the trailer and that the van is trying to siphon heat off the engine, but the temp gauge never budges. According to it, we are running in the normal range.
This van has AC controls for both the front and back sections of the van, and this is occurring with both sections, usually at the same time. Since we are on the Texas country circuit, we naturally spend a lot of time in Texas. Van Page 30

Van: Try a smoke test to see where the problem is continued from page 26
Having nine men in a van with no AC (or worse, the heat on full blast) in southern Texas leads to astounding levels of … interesting odors. I am composing this letter in the van, sweating profusely. Please, for the love of everything holy, help! – Luke RAY: In addition to a perspiration problem, you have a vacuum problem, Luke. TOM: There are little “blend doors” in the ducts of the ventilation system that open and close to direct hot and cold air to where you want it. Those doors are held open or closed by small vacuum motors. RAY: And for some reason, those motors aren’t getting enough vacuum, especially when the engine is under a condition we call “WOT,” or
“wide-open throttle.” TOM: The vacuum is created by the engine, when the pistons go down and suck air into the cylinders. The vacuum is at its highest when the engine is idling and the throttle is closed (closing the throttle is like putting your hand over the end of your vacuum cleaner’s hose) and at its lowest when the throttle is wide open. RAY: So, either you have lousy vacuum to begin with and it’s failing under high demand, or you have adequate vacuum and it’s leaking out somewhere along the way to those blend door motors. TOM: So, start with a simple pressure test to see if your engine is producing enough vacuum right at the intake manifold. That’s the source of your vacuum, and it’s from there that vacuum gets distributed
to the heater controls, the powerbrake booster and anything else that requires it. RAY: If the vacuum is sufficient there, then you’ll need to trace the route of the vacuum from the engine to the blend doors. There could be a crack or a small hole in the manifold itself, or in one of the vacuum hoses. TOM: Or you could have a bad vacuum reservoir. RAY: Some systems even use a check valve to maintain vacuum during wide-open throttle, and yours could be broken. TOM: If there is a leak, the best way to find it is with a smoke test. There’s a machine that pumps smoke into your vacuum system so you can watch and see exactly where it’s escaping. That’s where your leak is. Got a question?

hildren’s literature isn’t just for children anymore.

Hastings St. Acheson will share some of her latest work and there will be an open mike for everyone to share his or her own wordsmith creations.

With her latest book, The Cul-de-Sac Kids, the author joined with the 2012 Book Week Tour last spring, touring from Ottawa to far-north Kapuskasing. When she’s not writing her own books, Acheson teaches writing, working

Christmas farce at Shadbolt
Back by popular demand, the comedic play Hotel Bethlehem is on stage this month at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts. Satire meets farce meets holiday classic in this Ruby Slippers production that questions why The Inn was full and why a very pregnant woman was turned away at the door. Hotel Bethlehem offers a “fresh and hilarious take on this tradition tale; one that features shepherds contemplating sheep lotteries, Three Kings evading taxation, virgins, ridiculous Roman soldiers and a blind census-taker,” according to a press release. Directed by Diane Brown and written by Drew McCreadie, the play features set design by David Roberts, sound design by Jordan Watkins, lighting design by Jonathan Ryder, costume design by Drew Facey and is stage managed by
Humbug Free Zone
Allison Spearin. The play runs from Dec. 12 to 15 at 8 p.m., with a 2 p.m. matinée on Dec. 15 at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, 6450 Deer Lake Ave. To order tickets, call 604-205-3000 or visit tick ets.shadboltcentre.com. For more information, visit www.rubyslippers.ca.

Carver girls in top 10, boys just miss Tom Berridge
Carver Christian High School volleyball teams finished their respective provincial A championship tournaments with 10th and 11th final placements last weekend. The Carver girls dropped a 25-18, 26-24 decision to Langley Christian in the final battle for ninth place, while the boys’ team defeated Fernie in straight sets to finish up in 11th place overall. The girls finished fourth in pool play, including a three-set loss to eventual last-place finishing Salmo, before losing straight sets to eventual champion Kelowna Christian in championship play on Day 2. Later in the day, Carver found its game, handing Credo Christian a 26-28, 2523, 15-12 defeat. The Burnaby girls posted another tiebreak win over Fernie on Saturday to advance against Langley Christian. Kelowna Christian defeated Immaculata 3-0 in the gold-medal final. The Carver boys had a promising start but wound up missing their goal of a final top-eight finish. Carver placed second in power-pool play with opening round wins over Fernie and Houston Christian. In the following playoff rounds, the Burnaby boys stole a set in back-toback losses to both Vernon Christian and Houston.

Vikes finish on winning note The Burnaby North Vikings girls finished the B.C. high school AAAA provincial volleyball tournament in 13th place. The Lower Mainland runner-up was hoping for a better result in the 16-team championship tournament at Riverside Secondary, but a slow start in the first two days of the competition left 13th place the best outcome to play for. On the final day of consolation play, North defeated Terry Fox 2-1, coming back from a 25-20 opening-set loss to score a 25-16, 15-12 victory on Saturday. The Vikings went on to beat North Peace in straight sets in the 13th-place final. North began the competition in arguably the toughest pool, with No. 3 seed and eventual championship runner-up Heritage Woods, No. 5 seed and host Riverside, and wild card Elgin Park, which wound up ninth overall. North lost all three of its opening pool meetings in straight sets. In the championship crossover round,
the Vikes had No. 2 seed Kelowna doubting itself in the opening set but ultimately wound up on the losing end of a three-setter. North also lost 2-0 to eventual 11th-place finisher G.P. Vanier in the consolation bracket. South Delta defeated Heritage Woods in the championship final in five sets on a 15-12 tiebreaker. Earl Marriott won the bronze medal over Charles Best.
AA Knights place 10th
St. Thomas More Knights placed 10th in the B.C. high school AA high school girls’ provincial volleyball championships at David Thompson Secondary in Invermere. The Knights finished third in pool D, losing to both eventual finalist Pacific Academy in straight sets and to seventh-place College Heights in a tiebreak. STM swept Smithers 2-0 to finish 2-1 in pool play. In championship play, STM lost to eventual fifth-place finishing Richmond Volley Page 38

September 4, 1938 - October 6, 2012 John died after a long stay In St. Paul’s Hospital following heart surgery. He fought hard to come home, but his body wasn’t as strong as his spirit. Born the 8th of 12 children to Paul and Ann Chisaakay, John lived on the Dene-Tha Nation Reserve in Northern Alberta until he was 16, when he moved to Edmonton, living at the CNIB, learning braille and white cane mobility skills. He ultimately moved to Vancouver in 1972 when he began work at St. Paul’s Hospital in the CNIB Concession Stand. John took an early medical retirement from there in 1993.

He is survived by his wife Ginny, step-daughter, 2 grandsons, 3 brothers and 5 sisters. A funeral service was already held in Chateh, Alberta. A celebration of his life will take place at 4pm on December 21 at the Accent Inn, 3777 Henning Drive, Burnaby (close to Gilmore Skytrain Station). Please RSVP to Ginny: firstname.lastname@example.org

Cancer June 21-July 22: Work and health concerns remain important for two more weeks. Though early Sunday is sluggish, restful, the eve into Tuesday offers beauty, nature’s poetry, charming kids and romantic notions. Insight mixes with blind spots, so don’t take life-changing steps. Chores and health claim attention Tuesday afternoon to Thursday – charge in, almost everything succeeds. Thursday afternoon starts two days of exciting meetings, attractions, opportunities, fresh horizons – and possible enmity or challenge. (So practise diplomacy.) Long-range, believe in love – it’s coming (2013/14?). Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Charge after what/who you want. Take a chance; risks are likely to lead to bountiful rewards. Enroll kids in a great school. If you’re single and want someone, say so – to him/ her. Your creative talents are right there, waiting to be used. You’ll win at sports, games and cards. Don’t delay – only 12 days remain of this splendid, rewarding phase. True love might come from a group meeting, or from friends’ introduction. (So don’t avoid parties, gatherings.) These themes are especially strong midweek. Earlier (Sunday eve to early Tuesday) be restful, contemplate. Chores, Friday/Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Settle down, settle in all week, especially midweek. Your domestic situation is warm, vibrant, welcoming – and taking a few naps in the sunny window would be a good idea. It’s hibernation time – any extra rest you get now will redound to your beneﬁt Dec. 21 onward, when adventure, creativity and romance approach (and demand extra energy). Sunday afternoon to midday Tuesday brings errands, trips, communications with fascinating (romantic?) overtones. You might speak with a mate prospect. Romantic and creative notions arise Thursday noon to Saturday – but don’t push. Rest.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your wise, mellow mood continues, as do a stream of opportunities in far travel, education, publishing, law, cultural venues and other profound zones. You might ﬁnd these end up as smaller things, or that smaller things lead to or beneﬁt the bigger. (E.g., far, foreign travel becomes lucky when you engage in short, local trips. Or a large publishing venture emerges from a series of smaller emails.) This week and next, you’ll be increasingly drawn into these areas (travel, education, etc.) – to your beneﬁt. A love affair might arrive. Bosses, parents are temperamental: smile! Taurus April 20-May 20: Early week brings an exciting or inspiring meeting, perhaps the stirrings of passion. Your instincts are accurate here regarding communicating, friendship, light romance (so make a light, friendly phone call) – but you might be fooled (perhaps by yourself) regarding sex, intimacy and “possession.” These last themes (intimacy) become more pronounced Tuesday afternoon to Thursday – you will probably learn clearly where another stands. Your sexual and ﬁnancial antennae are alert: a good investment or debt reduction opportunity awaits. Wisdom, gentle moods ﬂow over you late week. Gemini May 21-June 20: Tackle chores Sunday p.m. to pre-dawn Tuesday. (Avoid working with or on the water, laundry appliances, etc.) The tone of this month is struck Tuesday afternoon to Thursday morning: relationships, opportunities, relocation themes, exciting meetings – and possible competition or opposition. (Defuse these with diplomacy and cheerful softness.) Thursday midday to midday Saturday brings secrets, ﬁnancial and sexual urges, and health concerns – a bonanza awaits if you research, investigate. These days can deepen a bond with someone. You can make a great new friend this week. Talk!

Dec. 9 - Dec. 15, 2012
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Paperwork, calls, visits, casual friends, siblings and errands ﬁll your days – especially midweek. Channel all anger or friction into the physical side of home: repairs, renos, landscaping, etc. In some extreme cases, the choice becomes: renos, etc., or the possible end of a relationship (if it formed since January 2011). Both can also occur: think deeply before acting. Chase money Sunday p.m., Monday. Home (and those potential repairs, etc., and domestic friction) is accented Thursday afternoon to Saturday noon. Paradoxically, new friendship and/or love might also blossom. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Continue to chase money – especially Tuesday eve to Wednesday midnight. A new earning (or spending) project brews these two days – it might be luckily connected to an investment or money partnership/association. (Unusual example: your spouse ﬁnds employment for you.) This is a good interval (Tuesday eve/night) to purchase land, food/shelter items, children’s items, electronics and high-tech, especially if they’re tools of your trade. A sensual relationship might blossom – but it would not suit marriage. Earlier, Sunday/Monday, your charisma, energy soar. Errands, calls, Friday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high – and surge even higher midweek. Start important things, make contact, see and be seen. If you’re single, someone’s attracted. Though you hold the short-term advantage, they hold the long-term one. You might have to make the ﬁrst move (or genuﬂection). Remember, until next July you will beneﬁt hugely from approaching others, being a team player, forging a link in love or business. Throw aside false pride: embrace good fortune. Rest, plan Sunday to Tuesday afternoon. Chase money, Thursday eve onward. Buy on Friday.
Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Continue to retreat, rest and plan rather than charge into the hurly- burly world. Your energy is low, especially midweek. Hopes rise Sunday eve to Tuesday; you’re inspired in social zones, fooled in monetary ones. Midweek deepens your thoughts: be sure to fulﬁll governmental, institutional or head ofﬁce requirements, paperwork. Your energy and charisma rise somewhat late Thursday to midday Saturday. A wish could come true (Friday) – but more probably, you will take a step toward fulﬁllment of a much larger wish or life goal, one that might take 1015 years to manifest: good! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Wishes can come true, especially midweek. Your social life continues to expand or buoy you. Life’s good! Be ambitious Sunday p.m. to Tuesday noon – don’t mix money and friendship. Popularity, light romance, entertainment, group functions arrive Tuesday to Thursday – welcome these. Envision your future, make plans. (Try this: after 5 p.m. PST, but before 9:30, write your deepest wish on a blank paper, fold it in half twice, then put it under your mattress. Leave it there until you forget about it.) Retreat, rest Thursday eve to Saturday noon – after this, your energy soars. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Charge after your ambitions, especially midweek, when a new project, career role,or status opportunity begins to form.Though Sunday morn is misty, mysterious, the afternoon into Tuesday bring wisdom and a mellow mood. A subtle difficulty might underlie peer relationships, but relations with higher-ups will improve over the few weeks ahead. The world looks bright, happy Thursday afternoon to Saturday noon – your popularity rises, light romance or other social joys arrive, and a minor wish (about money?) might come true. By Saturday eve, withdraw to rest and contemplate. firstname.lastname@example.org
