‘No lungs’ protest targets smokers

Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

You can have his heart, kidneys and liver, but don’t ask Leo Levasseur for his lungs. The Burnaby resident is withdrawing his respiratory organs from the list of items he’s willing to donate in protest of people who refuse to quit smoking. “I don’t want people to stop smoking the day they get a lung cancer or emphysema diagnosis from their doctor. I want them to quit now,” he said. Levasseur, who works in a customer service call centre, has never smoked a day in his life, but he’s a registered organ donor with B.C. Transplant. He’s also disappointed more people have not taken advantage of the provincial government’s free smoking-cessation program, which launched last September. The program covers the costs of a 12-week supply of nicotine replacement gum or patches, or a single continuous course of prescription anti-smoking drugs, like Zyban and Champix. So far, approximately 161,000 nicotine replacement therapies have been ordered through the program, and 45,000 people have signed up for a smoking cessation drug through their doctors. While B.C. has one of the lowest smoking rates in Canada at 14.3 per cent, there are 550,000 British Columbians who smoke, and 70 per cent want to quit, according to the B.C. Health Lungs Page 10

Quit it: Burnaby resident Leo Levasseur is leading a one-man campaign against smoking and wants more people to take advantage of the province’s free smoking cessation program. He hopes to showcase this poster he created in Burnaby schools.

Lower Mainland homeowners may see only a slight shift in their property values when they receive their assessment notices this week, but Burnaby single-family homeowners will likely see an increase. Homeowners in the North Fraser area – including Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore and Belcarra – can expect “modest changes,” according to a press release from B.C. Assessment. “Most homes in the North Fraser region are relatively similar in value compared to last year’s assessment roll,” deputy assessor Zina Weston said in the press release. “Most single-family homeowners will see modest changes in the minus five per cent to plus 10 per cent range.” The assessment office saw an increase in property values in the Capitol Hill neighbourhood, from $933,000 for a single-family home last year to $977,000 this year, according to the release. Other areas of the city also saw increases for single-family homes, particularly in North Burnaby. Overall, residential property values in Burnaby increased by 4.95 per cent from last year, going from $63.382 billion in 2012 to $66.682 billion in 2013. Owners of commercial or industrial businesses in the city are more likely to see a larger increase in their property values, according to B.C. Assessment, particularly for commercial businesses along the Kingsway corridor, with increases ranging from 20 to 30 per cent. Property owners can check online at www., and click on Values Page 10

Making connections meal-by-meal “Looks like her door’s open. God, I hate this, I’m shaking,” says Meals of Wheels volunteer Liz Froese. The apartment belongs to an elderly woman who is hard of hearing and wasn’t answering her phone or the front door buzzer at her Burnaby high rise.

It’s Monday afternoon. She knows she has a Meals on Wheels delivery today, she should be expecting someone, but Froese had to slip in the ON MY BEAT lobby door behind Jennifer Moreau another tenant, hot meal in hand. We are now on the 13th floor, and the woman’s door is slightly ajar. Froese has had a couple of people pass away on her, and she’s heard of another Burnaby volunteer who happened across a deceased client while making meal deliveries. Froese takes a deep breath and goes in. “Hello?” she calls out. No answer. We step into the next room. “Hello?” Silence. “Hello?” … When the last room is cleared, Froese’s chest collapses as she exhales. “I guess she’s out. She’s going to be freaked out that she left the door open,” she says and heads to the woman’s fridge to leave the packaged meal and an explanatory note on the table. Froese has been volunteering with Meals on Wheels for the past four years. She’s an ex-Burnaby resident, now living in North Vancouver, and thanks to her husband’s successful construction career, she could afford to leave her dental assistant job, which was causing work-related injuries. Now she volunteers two days a week, delivering hot meals to local seniors. Her favourite client is an elderly woman with Alzheimer’s disease who lives alone in a Metrotown highrise. “Sometimes she opens the door, sometimes she doesn’t,” Froese says. At times, she’s happy to see Froese, other times she’s confused, ornery and cursing a blue streak. Today, we’ve caught her on a pleasant note, and she lets us in the lobby. Despite being introduced as a reporter from the Burnaby NOW, the woman seems to think I am a nurse. Froese delivers a bagged lunch and a hot meal – chicken with some kind of sauce, a soup and dessert – prepared by a Richmond catering company. There are also special Chinese dishes, but the regular fare looks like the hospital variety palatable to delicate constitutions. The meals are packed in Styrofoam boxes to keep warm during the two hours it takes Froese to deliver to her nine clients. 6

Jennifer Moreau/burnaby now

Helping: Meals on Wheels volunteer Liz Froese spends two days a week delivering hot meals in Burnaby, mostly to seniors. The meals are kept warm in Styrofoam boxes while she makes her rounds. Frozen meals, as seen below, are also available. We bid the woman farewell, and the next stop is the apartment of a relatively new client who has been receiving meals for about six weeks, Froese explains, knocking on the door. A stooped woman with dark glasses and wild black hair answers. “Thank you,” she says, nodding and smiling. The exchanges are relatively short. There’s usually a bit of chitchat, but Froese has never heard this woman speak more than a couple of words. “I’m sure some people, the only people they see are the volunteers,” Froese says. One surprise on the route is a babyfaced man, who can’t be more than 20 years old. He has some kind of serious illness, Froese explains, and his caseworker has signed him up for Meals on Wheels. She’s not sure what the illness is, as she gets minimal information on the clients. She’s often curious about them, and some she gets to know over the years. According to Froese, most people receive food from Meals on Wheels because they just get old and are tired of cooking, but it’s usually their family members who sign them up. “I remember going to this one lady, it was her first time, and she started crying.

She said, ‘My son is doing this. He’s so sweet.’ It broke my heart,” Froese says. Burnaby Meals on Wheels has a contract with Burnaby Community Connections to deliver the food. The program relies on roughly 40 volunteers like Froese to distribute mid-day meals and bagged lunches, three times a week. It’s not free – people pay about $5.75 per meal – but everything is subsidized, and low-income clients pay even less, says Stephen D’Souza, executive director of Burnaby Community Connections.

Extra Foods* Sears* M&M Meats* Natural Factors* BuyLow Foods* Fair Market* * not in all areas

“Not everyone who uses the program is necessarily lowincome, but they have a dietary need for it. There’s some barrier for them to have nutritious food,” he says. Seniors make up a good portion of the Meals on Wheels clientele, D’Souza explains, and the isolation they face is a growing concern, especially over the holidays. “Their support networks are getting smaller, the people they’ve known are passing away or moving into supported care, more families are busy,” he says. There’s also a new program in the works called Let’s do Lunch, where the Meals on Wheels driver will sit down with the senior for a meal. D’Souza is hoping the pilot program will be running in the new year, and that should be available to the Meals on Wheels clientele. “It’s just a chance to connect with somebody,” D’Souza says.

Liberals still seeking candidate for Bloy’s post Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Liberals in the Burnaby-Lougheed riding are behind schedule in picking a candidate for the 2013 election, and Harry Bloy, the MLA who now holds the post, has been quiet about his future plans. The Liberals’ Burnaby-Lougheed constituency association was originally planning a nomination race for the fall of 2012, but association president Bob Davies told the NOW they’re still working on it. “At the moment, we haven’t scheduled anything. We are actively looking around,” Davies said.

When asked if they had anyone in mind, Davies’ response was, “not that we are willing to discuss at the moment, OK?” “We were hoping we would have something in place by now, but we are still looking at things,” he added. The Burnaby-Lougheed riding is one of two Liberal seats in Burnaby, and the area has been held by Harry Bloy since the Liberal landslide of 2001. Bloy also stands out as the only Liberal MLA who supported Premier Christy Clark in the party’s 2010 leadership race. He was rewarded with a cabinet position as Minister of Social Development, but it

was a portfolio plagued with problems, and he was demoted to multiculturalism after six months. In March, Bloy resigned from that post after he leaked a reporter’s email to a private school that was the subject of an investigative series by The Province newspaper. Shortly after, Clark confirmed with reporters that Bloy would not run in the 2013 election, but Bloy himself has never publicly spoken about his intentions, nor has he returned numerous calls from the NOW. According to a communications officer with the B.C. Liberal Party, candidates have to go through an application process and be approved by the party, but they

do not specifically require the premier’s approval. Local Liberal organizer Garth Evans wasn’t sure what was happening with Bloy or the Burnaby-Lougheed riding. “I believe the premier’s office has made a statement that Harry Bloy won’t be running, but I don’t know whether that’s definitive or not,” he said. “Usually if the premier says he or she wants something that usually happens.” In October, the NDP announced that their candidate for Burnaby-Lougheed would be Jane Shin, a Korean-Canadian doctor who works at Vancouver Community College.

Record number of critters helped in 2012 Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The year 2012 was a record-breaking one for the Burnaby-based Wildlife Rescue Association of B.C. The non-profit group, with headquarters at Burnaby Lake, cared for 4,036 animals – up from 3,312 in 2011 –making 2012 the busiest in the organization’s 34-year history. “The long winter, the salmonella outbreak in the spring which saw the arrival of dozens of pine siskins, and the closure of Monika’s wildlife shelter in Surrey have all contributed to the increase in the number of animals coming into the care of the Wildlife Rescue Association,” said Yolanda Brooks in a press release. “Our staff and volunteers have done an amazing job with caring for so many animals, but members of the public are also playing a vital part in saving lives. We rely on

them to bring animals in distress to us, and with their help and support we can continue to provide a lifeline for sick and injured wildlife.” In spring, wildlife rescuers were warning the public to clean out bird feeders regularly, as pine siskins, a type of migratory finch, were dying in large numbers around the Lower Mainland. Salmonella was thought to be the culprit, which can easily spread if bird feeders aren’t cleaned properly. Wildlife rehabilitators dealt with many regular species (geese, raccoons, skunks and herons, for instance) but they also helped a few critters rarely found in the Lower Mainland. A red-listed screech owl, a California quail, and a common poorwill (only one of three spotted on the B.C. coast since 1953) were among the more unusual birds that spent time at the rehabilitation centre.

On the other hand, there’s something announced that debt levels were at their


all-time high: for each after-tax dollar we’re bringing home, we’re borrowing more than $1.60. Racking up debt is easy to do, especially in this neck of the woods where mortgages make up a huge portion of debt levels for many people. But it’s not just housing. When it comes right down to it, we all – quite simply – spend too much. Perhaps it’s because it’s so easy to do, with online shopping, credit cards, store cards and personal financing available almost 24 hours a day. Why

Perhaps we’ve lost sight, as a nation, of what we want versus what we need – or the ease of getting more credit has blinded us to its pitfalls. Whatever the cause, our own, individual, fiscal cliffs are rapidly looming and, if interest rates go up, too many Canadians will fall off the edge. While we watch the financial chaos in the U.S., let’s not forget that trouble is brewing on our own doorsteps.

As a Burnaby resident, I am writing this note just to say thanks to TYBO Contracting Ltd., whose staff and contractors have made traffic bearable and a non-issue for most of the time they have been working on the North Road, Clarke Road widening and improvements for the Evergreen Line. As a resident and frequent user of businesses in the area, I am most impressed with the friendly and professional attitude of the staff. I have seen them joking, frequently communicating and speaking with people walking by and those in cars. I am always looking at the rapid progress made and the finished product and am always

pleased. They seem to take pride in their work and I have never heard of them until I saw a small traffic sign with the word TYBO written on it. I researched it and found the company. I have never done this before, but after speaking to my wife and several neighbours about it on several different occasions, I decided to write. On behalf of residents of Burnaby in the area, I offer just a simple “thank you” for making our daily lives just a little better. Caring people and pride in workmanship is hard to find in many industries today and to my surprise, I am finding it in my neighbourhood daily because of your company, employees and contractors. Makes me smile. Dr. Daren Hancott, Burnaby

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR No more city taxes Dear Editor:

I think that Burnaby city council needs to take a course in basic economics. Continuously increasing taxes is not good management. Economics involves the allocation of scarce resources; in this case, tax revenue. Their job is to decide which matters are a priority and allocate funds accordingly, not to just keep on increasing taxes so that every department gets everything it wants. When I was on council, I voted against the BCA budget each year because in my opinion the proposed tax increase was too high. As a result of the compounding continuous tax increases in order to restore a balance, there should be no tax increases for at least a three-year period. I am also not impressed with council’s decision to sneak in a further tax increase by imposing a garbage collection fee. Garth Evans, Burnaby

Looking ahead to 2013

Dear Editor:

I think you definitely got it right with some of the things mentioned in the Burnaby NOW, reflecting on 2012. I don’t see the need to build more condominiums. We are already over-populated, and some people can’t afford to buy a new condo. There are new condos being built everywhere you look.


The party is almost broke and cannot guarantee it will even be able to run a full slate of candidates. At best, the party may win a couple of seats (the Peace River ridings are potentially their friendliest region) but otherwise may attract enough disaffected B.C. Liberal voters in a few ridings to allow the NDP to snag a few seats it otherwise wouldn’t have a chance of winning. As for the Green Party, it may have a shot at winning one or two seats (a big maybe) on Vancouver Island, where the party is strongest. The key riding to watch will be Oak Bay-Gordon Head, where well-known climatologist Andrew Weaver is running. He will


Another thing is that we’re going to allow migrant workers and more immigrants to Canada. We really don’t need this sort of thing, do we? I hope there will be more employment opportunities, such as job placement programs to get people back to work with or without a disability. Daryl Shim, by email

Bigger stick from Harper

Dear Editor:

A long time ago, Stephen Harper sat down with Aboriginal leaders and puffed on a peace pipe because he believed the smoke would mellow the radicals and at the same time obscure corporate plans for exploiting resource-rich treaty lands. Harper wants the First Nations people to follow submissively in his footsteps just as he submissively follows in the tire tracks of the corporations that criss-cross Canada. According to legend, Paul of Tarsus had an epiphany on the road to Damascus. Paul’s epiphany caused him to reassess his mean-spirited attitude toward early Christians. Saint Paul became a missionary and followed in the footsteps of Jesus. Our Prime Minister recently had an epiphany on the road to Beijing. No doubt the environmental demonstrators carrying “Idle No More” signs have strengthened his resolve. Harper’s epiphany: don’t talk; carry a bigger stick. Lloyd Atkins, by email

Election: Who will win? continued from page 6


either win, or take enough B.C. Liberal and NDP voters to allow incumbent Ida Chong to hang on in a tight race. But the Greens are simply not a force on the broader provincial stage. While it’s incorrect to assume Green voters are more closely aligned with the NDP than any other party, it is likely their vote eats into NDP support more substantially than others. Therefore, if the election turns out to be close between the B.C. Liberals and the NDP, at best the Greens will play a spoiler role and allow the B.C. Liberals to win a few tight races. 4. Will any single issue dominate politics in the coming year? It is unlikely one

new issue will suddenly emerge as the key issue as the election cycle heads into the homestretch. The B.C. Liberals will insist the big issue is which party is most reliable and competent when it comes to managing the economy, while the NDP will continue to stress its theme that the next vote comes down to who can you trust, and that it’s time for a change at the top. Other issues will come and go, but in the end, those two themes will be hammered home again and again as voting day nears. You might as well get used to it.

Provincial mandate to cut school spending Burnaby school board has been asked to save money to fund support staff wage hikes Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The provincial Education Ministry is asking school districts across B.C. to find savings to help pay for wage increases for school support staff, and the request has the Burnaby Teachers’ Association president shaking his head and the district’s secretary-treasurer wondering where to make cuts. “The trustees and people like secretary-treasurers around the province are shocked,” said Burnaby Teachers’ Association president James Sanyshyn. “Their jaws are all on the ground. They don’t even know what to say. They’re just absolutely horrified, and some districts are piping up right away and saying, ‘Get lost,’ like Victoria, for example.” On Dec. 3, Education Minister Don McRae sent a letter to B.C.’s school boards, including Burnaby, outlining the savings plans needed to support collective bargaining with the education sector’s support staff, which is set to start in January. The government is trying to balance the budget amidst demand from public sector employees for higher pay, and McRae is asking that school districts find savings of 1.5 per cent of support staff compensation, to help with government flexibility in funding wage increases. According to McRae’s letter, the savings “must not negatively impact the delivery of educational programming for students,”

and the deadline for boards to have savings plans ready is mid-January. Despite the term “mandate,” the Education Ministry has stressed that this is a request to school boards, not a demand. “I recognize that boards of education also face fiscal pressures at this time and have varying capacity to generate savings,” McRae wrote, acknowledging that finding savings will be very difficult in some cases. Burnaby’s support staff are represented Greg Frank by the Canadian Union Treasurer of Public Employees, Local 379, and president Paul Simpson thinks it’s not possible for Burnaby to find the money. “The bottom line is the school districts can’t find savings when they are already underfunded,” Simpson said. “No districts can find savings without cutting.” Support staff includes education assistants and maintenance, custodial and clerical staff – everyone except teachers and district administration. According to Greg Frank, secretarytreasurer of the Burnaby school district, that 1.5 per cent target equates to $600,000 in the first year and $1.2 million in the second. “It’s a challenge for Burnaby,” Frank said. “Our three-year budget projection right now is showing a shortfall for 2013/14 of $6.1 million. This would add to that pressure. We have got other cost pressures, such as a recently announced

New centre in city named The new resource centre planned for Rosser Avenue and Lougheed Highway has a name. Burnaby council approved the name Brentwood Community Resource Centre at a closed meeting in December. Future tenants of the centre, including Burnaby Community Connections, Burnaby Meals on wheels, the YMCA of Greater Vancouver, MOSAIC, the city’s social issues committee and the Embassy Development Corporation are to be informed in writing, a report from the city’s finance and civic development committee stated.

The centre will be located on the site of the new Vantage building by Embassy Development Corporation at 2085 Rosser Ave. The Vantage development, which includes a 30-storey residential tower, is currently under construction with residents expected to move in this spring, according to the developer’s website. The centre is being built through the city’s community amenity bonus program, through which developers are able to exchange community space or cash-in-lieu of space for extra density.

increase in the teachers’ pension plan. That item alone will add another $1.5 million to our budget pressures.” Frank said it would be difficult in identifying areas that could be cut. “Most districts in the province, including Burnaby, have been making a number of budget reductions in recent years, and have very few places left to go to make further reductions,” he said. As for whether Burnaby will comBaljinder Narang ply, that’s up to the Board chair elected board, and the newly appointed chair, Baljinder Narang, is still adjusting to the news. “The government has brought this on out of the blue. We (had) no idea, we had no expectations, there was no collaboration, no kind of consultation or any process,” Narang said. “Suddenly, we’ve been given a deadline for Jan. 15. It’s overwhelming, and for us to realistically say we are going to do it is really hard.” Narang would like the Education Ministry to extend the deadline so the board can consider the request as part of its regular budget planning process, which takes place from January to April. The board has not yet taken any official stance on the government’s request, partly

because of the timing and the fact that some trustees are away for the holidays. “We are doing the first step in writing to the minister and putting forward our case and saying we are not able to submit a program,” Narang said, adding that the Burnaby school board was working with the B.C. School Trustees Association, which takes school boards’ concerns to the province. Association president Michael McEvoy sent a letter to McRae in response to the request, stating that “districts have very little, if any, wherewithal to generate savings of three per cent over two years as proposed.” Following McRae’s initial letter, there was a conference call with board chairs, and according to McEvoy, a ministry representative informed them that the savings target was 1.5 for two years, which is tantamount to three per cent. “During the course of that conference call the ministry representative said, ‘We’re looking for 1.5 per cent in this year,’ that is to say half-way through this year, ‘and an additional 1.5 per cent in the following fiscal year,’” McEvoy told the NOW. “Somebody in the meeting said, ‘It doesn’t say that in the letter. Do you intend to correct that or put that in the letter?’ and the response from the ministry was, ‘No, you now know, we have told you that.’ So that’s what happened.” The Education Ministry also confirmed with the NOW that the savings target is 1.5 per cent over two years.

Local extreme weather shelters open up With the downturn in temperatures, sites have opened up for the homeless Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

As word spreads that local extreme weather shelters are opening, Burnaby and New Westminster homeless people are starting to filter in from the cold. “There’s been a total of 40 people in New Westminster in the six days we’ve been operating so far, from Dec. 8 to (Dec. 20),” said Dave Suttie from Lookout Emergency Aid Society, which runs extreme weather shelters in Burnaby and New Westminster. Numbers in Burnaby have been lower: only eight people showed up in December during the five nights the shelter was open. “Burnaby is mixed because its temperatures are a bit

Crash survivor from Burnaby Alfie Lau

staff reporter

A 46-year-old Burnaby resident is one of the 39 survivors of Sunday morning’s tragic bus crash in Oregon which killed nine people. Hee Eun Kim, 46, of Burnaby, was on the list of survivors released by Oregon State Police on Monday. The bus, operated by a Vancouver-

based company, Mi Joo Tour & Travel, which also has an office on North Road in Coquitlam, slid off an icy road just outside of Pendleton, Oregon. Passengers ranging in age from seven to 74 were on the bus. Police and firefighters tried to rescue people who had been ejected from the bus as it careened down an icy, 60-metre embankment along a

stretch of Interstate 84. Police said the 47 passengers came from a variety of cities, including Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, Boise and Milwaukee. Most held Korean passports. Police said the investigation into the cause of the crash may take four weeks or longer.

Ministry. Each year, smoking kills nearly 6,000 people in B.C. and causes heart disease, cancer, stroke and emphysema. Levasseur has made it his life’s goal to turn people off from smoking, so taxpayers aren’t burdened with the additional healthcare costs and so he doesn’t have to deal with second hand smoke in public. According to the Health Ministry, smoking costs the economy $2.3 billion annually, and $605 million of that is in direct health-care related costs. “It’s going to affect all of us who pay taxes. Eightyfive per cent of B.C. residents don’t smoke or aren’t

addicted. It’s the 15 per cent that are going to be sick and requiring medical attention,” he said. “I want to go wherever I want without breathing second-hand smoke,” he added. “Why should I be subject to their addictions?” Levasseur’s one-man anti-smoking campaign includes a poster he created that he would like to display in schools, and he is planning to contact the school district. For those who did not take advantage of the provincial government’s smoking cessation program, Levasseur suggested other methods to help people kick the deadly habit: acupuncture, hypnotherapy

and laser therapy. Levasseur is also hoping his anti-smoking message resonates at a time when many are making new year’s resolutions to quit. “The time to do this is right now. A lot of people are quitting. Team up with

Top nod for efforts at work and in community Professional association gives top honour to local engineer, founder of Vancouver school Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Burnaby resident Harry Lee is a busy man. Lee, who is a specialist engineer with B.C. Hydro, is also chair of the board of trustees for the Stratford Hall Foundation and sits on the board of governors for the private school. Lee started the non-denominational university preparatory school in East Vancouver with his wife, Elaine, 13 years ago. “We were looking for a school for our daughter,” he says, adding they noticed the East Vancouver/Burnaby area had a “bit of a gap” when it came to prep schools. “One day, my wife came home and said, ‘we should look at starting something here, starting our own school,’” he says. “It kind of went from there.” Elaine co-founded the school with another mother, Cindy Leung, according to the school’s website, starting out in the Italian Cultural Centre in September 2000. The school started with 40 students from kindergarten to Grade 6, and now has nearly 500 students from kindergarten to Grade 12, according to Harry. Stratford Hall became an International Baccalaureate school in 1999 and in 2005, moved to a permanent location on Commercial Drive, according to the website. The primary years program building opened in 2009 and a third building – for the middle years program – is currently underway. As to what convinced the couple to open their own school, Lee says he didn’t realize just how much work it would be. “It was probably a good dose of being naive,” he says, laughing. Their daughter graduated from the school three years ago and is in her third year at Simon Fraser University, he adds. Lee was recently recognized for his work as an engineer and in the community with the RA McLachlan Memorial Award, awarded by the Association of

Larry Wright/burnaby now

Top dog: B.C. Hydro engineer Harry Lee, who is a Burnaby resident, received one of the top awards in the province from the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of B.C. for contributions to his profession and the community.

Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of B.C. in November. “It’s the premier award for an engineer,” he explains, “so I bragged to my kids, your dad’s the best engineer in B.C.” The award was in honour of his contributions to his profession, as well as his community work. “It was quite a nice experience for me, quite unexpected,” he says. Lee’s job is to maintain energy stability, working with the instrumentation that controls and monitors the main power grid, he says.

The major transmission grid covers a wide geographic area that includes B.C. and goes all the way down to San Diego, California. “Probably the biggest challenge is that all the utilities along the West Coast, and similarly in other areas of North America, we’re all interconnected,” he explains. “The big challenge on the West Coast is that we’re so far apart.” Lee works to keep the grid safe and stable, adjusting equipment to help if there is a problem in one area, he says. “Touch wood, we’re pretty good up

here,” he adds. “But we do see events down in, say, California and south California.” The industry has changed a lot since Lee first worked for the company when he was a student at the University of British Columbia, he says. He has worked for B.C. Hydro since graduating in 1981. Digital technology has changed things a great deal, he says. “It’s given us a much more precise view of what is going on in the power system,” he says. “We operate with more confidence than before.”

at Burnaby Hospital where the biggest need was, she replied without hesitation ‘our psychiatric patients’,” said Vern Milani, president of the company, in a press release. “During the holidays women and children usually get all the attention, but this population of the hospital is typically forgotten. That is why we want to bring them some joy, smiles and a great meal.” The company hosted a barbecue Christmas lunch at the Burnaby mental health service inpatient unit on Dec. 20.

It is a 25-bed psychiatric unit for adults and provides treatment to patients experiencing an acute phase of psychiatric illness, the release stated.

Keeping busy Coats for Kids helped keep 1,200 children warm I 1







Jennifer Moreau


n estimated 1,200 Burnaby children are better able to brace the cold this winter, thanks to the Rotary Coats For Kids campaign. The annual volunteerrun effort, spearheaded by the Rotary Club of Burnaby Metrotown, collects donations of new and gently used coats to distribute to families in need. This year’s total was less than the 1,700 coats collected last year, and campaign organizers were aiming for 2,000. The coats are loaded onto a van, which functions like a mobile dressing room, so children can climb aboard and pick out a coat they like. This year, moms with strollers lined up around the block to get proper winter coats for their children. According to longtime Rotarian Gloria Tom Wing Staudt, coats for babies and children up to five-years-old were in higher demand this year,

and the volunteers had a hard time sourcing the jackets. When there aren’t enough donations of coats, the Rotary members and their volunteers use monetary donations to buy them, but finding low-cost coats for the younger kids has been harder this year. “When we got to the stores to find them, they are very expensive,” said Tom Wing Staudt. In the meantime, this year’s leftover coats have been packed away so there’s some stock to start next year’s campaign. The Rotary Coats For Kids campaign used to start collecting donations in September, but now they are collecting all year round. To get involved, email rotarycoatsforkids@

Canadian Blood Services is facing a shortage of donors in North Burnaby, and the national blood bank is asking local residents to help. Canadian Blood Services moved one of its mobile clinics from Burnaby North Secondary to Cliff Avenue United Church in November. Since the move, the number of donors has dropped, partly because of the new location change and also because donations tend to slow in the holiday season. “It is affecting us. Because of the holiday season a lot of people are very busy, and they don’t have the blood donation as one of the things they want to do,” said Arleen Asi, who works as an event specialist “It is affecting us. with Canadian Blood Services. “For us, our job is to remind Because of the people we need help to supply hospital demands.” holiday season The new clinic at Cliff Avenue a lot of people Church is at 1600 Cliff Ave. in are very busy. … North Burnaby.

The next chance to donate is Jan. 10. Out of 174 appointments available, only 50 donors have been booked so far. To make an appointment, go to or call 1-888-236-6283.

Focus on things that matter in the new year HEALTHWISE

Dr. Davidicus Wong


s children return to school and grownups get back to work, many are feeling the post-holiday blues. Suddenly, green and red seem out of season. The magic has faded, and warm, fuzzy moments yield to the plain, cold winter. What is left of the yuletide season? When you think of holiday leftovers, what comes to mind? Turkey sandwiches, fruitcake, hangovers, extra pounds and inches, credit card debt or overfilled garbage cans? There are presents that will bring value into the new year: mittens and sweaters to keep you warm, a new bike for a child, and books that will capture your imagination. What else can we bring forward from the holidays? Is there any leftover magic that can enrich postholiday life? ◆ Renewed Relationships: For many families, the holidays are like a salmon

run. Kids away for school and grownups who have moved from their hometowns migrate back to their families of origin. It’s a time to catch up and spend time together and wonder why we don’t do this more often. We’re back together with those who matter most. It’s a time to reconnect with old friends, but often there isn’t enough time to physically get together. We have to settle for cards and email updates. Note for the New Year’s calendar: make time for your friends. Don’t settle for Facebook. Have real face time with friends. ◆ Expressing Love and Appreciation: We all take for granted the people in our lives. The holidays give us an opportunity to express some of our deepest feelings. It never hurts to tell our best friends and family how much they mean to us and how we love them even if they may have heard it before. We all need that positive reinforcement. We all like to feel appreciated. Each year, I am moved by my special patients who take the time to write a card or wrap a present. They are exceptional in their graciousness.

That graciousness can be a positive contagion. Kind and thoughtful acts throughout the year can warm cold days and bring happiness to others. They can inspire others to be gracious as well, inciting a cascade of kindness. Let us resolve to be more appreciative of the people in our lives and never miss an opportunity to express love. ◆ Goodwill Towards Others: Forgetting for the moment holiday traffic

jams, rude customers and overwhelmed retail workers, remember the general good will of the season. We greet others – even total strangers in the elevator – with smiles and wishes for a wonderful time with loved ones. We remember that we all have families and friends whom we love and love to be with, and we wish for others what we want ourselves. Goodwill is another positive contagion. Let’s pass it on more indis-

We donate more freely to charity and we think of those in need, but of course, the food bank and those reliant on the generosity of others have needs every day of the year. Let us remember those needs in every season. As we put away the holiday decorations for

another year, consider bringing into the new year, the best of the season all year round: renewing our relationships, expressing love and appreciation, spreading good will and giving what is most needed.

Superstar celebrates her year

Giants win a second Mac’s cup

Tom Berridge sports editor

If Burnaby soccer star Christine Sinclair was not already Canada’s most recognizable female athlete, she is now. The 29-year-old captain of Canada’s bronze-medalwinning women’s soccer team led the Canadian athletes into Olympic stadium in London as her country’s flagbearer for the closing ceremonies. It was a fitting tribute to the single most influential player in women’s soccer in the country over the past decade, and the unlucky heroine of Canada’s heartbreaking 4-3 overtime loss to eventual gold medallist Team United States in the semifinals at the Games. Although always reluctant to take the spotlight, it’s a responsibility, not unlike the unselfish burden of shouldering the pitfalls and fortunes of the national team for so many years, she has learned so well to carry. “This is a huge honour, and I wish I could have my teammates right here with me,” said Sinclair. “We want the next generation of young girls to dream of being in the Olympics and getting a medal around their necks. If we can instill in them just the belief that this can happen, then we have done our jobs.” For Sinclair, that quest for a medal at a major

Olympics with a tournament-best six counters, including the three memorable markers that almost sank the unsinkable American ship in the stuff Hollywood spins into its movie making.

The Northwest Giants toasted the New Year with a second AAA midget boys’ hockey title at the 35th annual Mac’s Cup tournament in Calgary on New Year’s Day. Jackson Cressey scored the game-winning goal in double overtime in a 3-2 victory over the Carolina Junior Hurricanes at the ScotiaBank Saddledome. Brandon Del Grosso was the hero of the gold-medal final, garnering two points, including the game-tying goal with just 12.5 seconds left in regulation time. With goalie Bo Didur on the bench for a sixth attacker, Malik Kaila moved the puck to Jarid Lukosevicius, who made a short pass to Del Grosso, who roofed the puck past Carolina player of the game Sean Kuehn. The Giants won their first Mac’s Cup in 2009. After a scoreless first 10minute overtime period, Colton Kerfoot sent Eric Margo and Cressey away up the right side on a twoon-one break. Margo left a drop pass to Cressey, whose return pass glanced off a defenceman’s skate past Kuehn for the winning goal.

Hockey cadets win first Burnaby title Tom Berridge

A booming slap shot from the point by defenceman Andrew Stevens gave the Okanagan Hockey Academy its first-ever title at the 50th Bantam AAA International hockey tournament in Burnaby on New Year’s Eve. The goal by the first team tournament all-star gave the Okanagan academy a 4-3 victory over the Langley Eagles in the tournament gold-medal final. OHA’s player of the game Davis Koch scored two goals to help the Interior team to a 3-1 lead midway through the second period. But later in the period, Langley closed the deficit to a single goal on Baylee Wright’s tap-in. Langley’s player of the game, Spencer Gerth, then added to the excitement, getting the game-tying tally on a five-on-three power play at 6:29 in the final frame. “This year, we decided we wanted to be a part of this. It’s always been a highly regarded tournament,” said academy vice-president and former Vancouver Canucks’ Dixon

Indeed, Sinclair’s smiling face was emblazoned across the front pages of major dailies across Canada after the win over France. It came in stark contrast to the image of Sinclair on her knees and her hands clenched above her head, with her face overcome with the emotion of the moment following that wonderful win over France in Coventry. “You can’t be great until you’ve achieved something great,” Sinclair has said in the past. And

this was her crowning moment. Canadian sports fans chose Sinclair as Canada’s 2012 athlete of the year in a poll. The 29-year-old national team striker also took home a second athlete of the year award, winning the coveted Lou Marsh award that is named after a Toronto Star sports editor. Later in the month, Sinclair earned yet another major press award with The Canadian Press female athlete of 2012 on Dec. 28.

Ward, the team’s assistant coach, spent 10 seasons in the NHL, with six separate clubs. He was also named the Calder Cup playoff MVP with the 1996 AHL champions Rochester Americans. Ward’s best season in the NHL was as a rookie forward in Vancouver, when

he scored 22 goals and 52 points for the Canucks. But watching the academy players battle back was also a highlight for Ward. “He (Stevens) is a heck of a defenceman. We’ve been begging him to raise the puck from the back end and it went in,” said Ward. The Prince George Cougars placed third over-

Giants’ player of the game Anthony Conti scored the team’s first goal, tying the score 1-1 on a power play late in the opening period. Didur was also a big factor, stopping eight of 32 shots in the Giants’ net in the first period of OT. Cressey was also the hero in the Giants’ 4-2 win over Pirati Chomutov from the Czech Republic in the semifinals, scoring two goals, including the eventual gamewinner in the middle frame, in a three-point effort. The Giants knocked off the Red Deer Optimist Chiefs 8-5 in a quarter-final matchup. Lukosevicius and Conti both scored twice for the Giants in the high-scoring playoff.

Cancer June 21-July 22: This week starts with romance and/or passion – and/or, because the passion can be creative, or about a risky venture, or passion for a child’s future. Be careful in these – a secret, a too-lustful approach, or a money or health factor (e.g., herpes) could lead love into disappointment or anger. Be moderate. Tackle chores midweek. Thursday/Friday bring opportunity and opposition. True love is a potential all week, but if true love is born now, it’s likely to be a fiery, perhaps rocky one! The weekend is for mulling, figuring it all out. All month, invest or research in career. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: A pile of work faces you. (With more chores than you might suspect on the home front, as Sunday/Monday hint.) Might as well plunge in and get it done. A relationship heats up now into February – this can be love or enmity, but a definite societal, intellectual, travel, cultural or legal theme accompanies it. “Dynamic” couples might agree to wed – or travel. Tuesday/Wednesday emphasize romance, pleasure, sports, creative surges and speculative ventures, but only Tuesday “come through.” There’s that work – in spades – Thursday/Friday. Careful Saturday eve: wrong relationship! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The accent lies on romance, creativity, sports, games, charming kids, beauty and pleasure – you’re riding a winning streak, especially Thursday/Friday, when a new love affair or a new creative project could start. But work demands your attention, too. This week, a schedule keeps you from careening all over the place. (Ignore schedules next week, when opportunities need flexibility.) Sunday (better) and Monday (a dud) feature short trips, communications, curiosity and variety. Attend to your foundations, home and family (and your need for rest) midweek – start projects Tuesday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent continues on ambition, status, prestige relationships and your dealings with authorities. From 2008 to 2024, higher-ups are serious, implacable, heavy-handed. Yet, from 2011 to 2018, rebellious urges visit you strongly; you have seldom been so unwilling to compromise. The result could be a battle royal: but before you enter it, contemplate their motives and your options. To succeed, fulfill higher-ups’ dreams and social wishes, which are the same as your own financial, research and/or sexual goals. Sorry this is puzzling: no other way to express it. Clues Sunday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Soon love questions will be resolved – the mysterious, the lustful, will dissolve to become understanding, gentle affection. (That’s not a decrease in love, but a transformation to a stronger base.) Continue, all month, to avoid friction with higher-ups: smile, tackle chores promptly. You might be “kicked upstairs” – into a management role. The nicest thing: these weeks are filled with a mellow wisdom: useless fears melt away. Relationships (to autumn 2015) are slow, demand loyalty and “repeated effort” – but this trend also brings the right mate to singles – clues Sunday. Gemini May 21-June 20: As I predicted, your friendship circle has begun to grow over the last few months (compared to 1996-2011). This month, you might fear that the old barrier has returned, as a solitary mood steals over you. But this is temporary – by late January, and especially February to June (and doubly especially in April) your optimism will return, and friendships will increase again! Meanwhile, use the solitude, depths, mysteries and urges of the present to invest, or to make good changes in your life: bold changes! (Best Thursday/Friday.) Protect health Sunday/Monday. New vistas midweek.

Jan. 6 - Jan. 12, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The focus lies on home, children, nutrition, land, security, retirement. These basic matters are undergoing deep, significant change in the 2008-2024 period. Many Librans “made their nest” in the last three years: but now you might be spending on that nest, or on your children. You don’t mind, because you see the lasting value involved. Still, keep expenses in line with a conservative income picture, now to late 2015 (clues Sunday/Monday). A romantic thread winds through January, could lead you to a true mate, especially from the 21st into February. Security and amour don’t mix. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The accent lies on communications and travel, especially Thursday/ Friday, when a new project might emerge. Be curious – what you find now might form the basis for future projects/actions. E.g., you might wander into a neighbourhood where your next home will be. Act slowly, wisely and gently on the home front all month. Your energy and charisma soar Sunday/ Monday (though little might get done Monday – stick to routine jobs). Chase money, buy/sell Tuesday. Settle into home comforts Saturday – a.m. lucky, p.m. not. Soon – not yet – a major, beneficial lifestyle change will arrive. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Chase money (buy/ sell, expand clients, tug your boss’s shirttail, etc.). That will be easier next week than this one, but by waiting you might miss a good opportunity (probably Thursday/Friday) to launch a lucrative process. You’ll feel restless all month, as a streak of curiosity and wanderlust draw you toward a pleasurable (or romantic) destination. Reading, writing, news media and coffee shops can ease your itchy feet. If you have feelings for someone, tell them. Don’t mistake solitude for security. Lie low, rest early week. You shine Monday/Tuesday! Travel Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness continue at a yearly high. Start important projects, see and be seen, call in favours, propose new schemes to bosses or employees. You’re on a rise! Money flows to you all month – bank it, or you could lose more than you gain. Spend only – carefully – on household items, real estate, food and shelter. Your optimism, cheerfulness and happiness rise on a swell of friendly feeling Sunday/Monday. (Monday, money and social plans might conflict.) Until late 2015 your hopes and wishes will be sober, serious – and more likely to come true. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Retreat, plan. Rest, contemplate. Support others, and seek support if you need it. Therapy, charitable acts, interfacing with government agencies or corporate head offices – these go well. Your determination and sex appeal are strong now, but keep them “in reserve.” Avoid overexertion, and overstaying your welcome. By the 19th onward, you’ll burst into an all-round explosion of accomplishment. Higher-ups are observing Sunday/ Monday. Smile, rather than vent your frustration Monday. Hope returns midweek. But the full extent of your weariness hits Thursday/Friday: find sweet rest. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: This week and next bring popularity, light romance, wish fulfillment, entertainment and optimistic plans for the future. Be thoughtful Sunday/Monday. Wisdom will nudge you to reject a money source that’s “tainted” or too secretive. Be ambitious Tuesday; act early, take steps to firm/form alliances and seize career opportunities. Wednesday’s the same, a pleasant, ambitious day – trouble is, it yields little. Stick to routine. That popularity and light romance arrive strongly Thursday/ Friday – enjoy! But retreat Saturday, take a rest. All month, avoid unsavoury people and locales. • Reading: 604-886-4808
