Auditor general could stay Committee may reconsider auditor general decision, according to Burnaby MLA Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The fate of John Doyle’s future as auditor general is up in the air again, following an announcement from Premier Christy Clark to introduce legislation extending the auditor general’s term by two years. At a Wednesday media conference, Clark recommended that an independent committee of five MLAs reconsider its choice not to keep Doyle on as auditor general for another six-year-term, a decision that has elicited criticism from political pundits. Burnaby MLA Kathy Corrigan, one of two New Democrats on the committee, said no subsequent decision has yet been made regarding the premier’s announcement. “We’re in meetings about it. We’re going to be meeting on Friday, and no decision has been made,” Corrigan said. “The premier this morning came up with a suggestion out of nowhere and said that she would bring in legislation that would make the term for eight years – as opposed to what we have now, which is six years – and a re-appointment for six years.” The other committee members are New Democrat Bruce Ralston, and Liberals Eric Foster, Blair Lekstrom and John Les. The motion to recommend the legislature reappoint an auditor general has to be unanimous. Committee Page 9

Heavy burden: A 73-year-old Burnaby man is in hospital after being trapped inside his home for days after his belongings fell on him. The home was so packed with hoarded items that a chainsaw was needed to get him out.

A Burnaby man may lose his foot after being trapped in his home under piles of collected belongings. Burnaby RCMP officers, along with firefighters and emergency services personnel, went to a home in the 6900-block of Mandy Avenue on Monday evening, after family members called to say they had trouble contacting the homeowner. When police arrived, they found a home stuffed almost to the ceiling with hoarded items. They were able to make verbal contact

with the man but getting to him was difficult. Emergency personnel had to use a chainsaw to clear a path and extract the 73-year-old man, known to neighbours as Dave, whose legs were trapped underneath some items. The extraction took three hours. Police believe the man may have been trapped in the house for several days. After freeing the man, emergency personnel took him to Burnaby Hospital and, according to Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Dave Reid, the man had lost circulation to his lower extremities for long enough that he may lose his foot.

The man was also suffering from dehydration. Reid told the Burnaby NOW on Thursday morning that the latest update he had about the man was that he was still recovering in hospital and physicians were still looking into whether his foot would need to be amputated. Reid said city officials have also been looking into whether the man’s house is habitable. “There was no danger to the public,” said Reid. “This is a sad case. … If nobody had found him, the outcome could have been tragic.” www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

Birders flock to park to see rare bluetail ‘Mega sighting’ of Asian bird brings people to New West Theresa McManus staff reporter

Birders are aflutter about the presence of a rarely seen bird and are flocking to Queen’s Park to take a look. A red-flanked bluetail has been spotted in Queen’s Park – the first time the bird has been seen in Canada. “The mood is absolute jubilation. People are high-fiving, whooping – not to scare the bird, huge grins on their faces, pumping their fists like they scored a goal in a World Cup game,” said Burnaby resident George Clulow. “For birders, this is about as exciting as it gets.” Clulow, who has seen the bird in Asia, helped another birder identify it after it was spotted on the weekend. Birders from Kelowna, Victoria and Washington have already travelled to town to view the bird. “If you rush down to Queen’s Park right now, you can find one of the rarest birds ever to show up in Canada,” Clulow wrote on Outdoors – Birds, Nature and Parks blog on Monday. “In fact, the redflanked bluetail has never been seen before in Canada until yesterday. A single bird like this usually results in a flock of birders coming to see it, and they were arriving from around the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley in flocks this morning.” Clulow expects visitors from across the continent to arrive in the days ahead to see this “ultra rarity” that’s a “mega sighting” for local birders. Clulow said the bird looks extremely healthy and is finding lots to eat in

Larry Wright/burnaby now

Bird is the word: People gathered to catch sight of a rare red-flanked bluetail in Queen’s Park this week. The mood at the park was jubilant, according to Burnaby resident George Clulow. Queen’s Park. According to Clulow, the red-flanked bluetail is a widely distributed bird right across northern Asia. A forest bird, it’s found a habitat that is “fairly typical” of its normal winter habitat. Noting that the red-flanked bluetails are “fairly long-distance migrants”, Clulow

said it appears this bird migrated southeast instead of southwest. “It would normally be in more southerly parts of Asia,” he said. “It winters in south China, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Sumatra and Java.” Clulow said it’s suspected that the bird is a male, based on the state of its plum-

age. “This bird is a first-year bird,” he said. “It was born in 2012. It’s typical these birds that get way off course are first-year birds.” While it may be young, the bird seems to have adjusted to its new surroundings just fine.

‘Banner year’ for Burnaby Christmas Bureau Christina Myers staff reporter

With the tough economy, the term “banner year” isn’t heard very often at community organizations that rely on donations. But that’s just how Stephen D’Souza with the Burnaby Christmas Bureau described this year’s campaign. “It was amazing, this community is amazing,” he told the NOW this week. Though the numbers are still being tallied, he’s estimated they’ll reach $198,000 in financial donations. That’s more than $10,000 shy of their goal of $210,000, but the shortfall is manageable, he says.

“We’re below our goal, but only marginally – we set a very ambitious goal, and where we got to is an incredible year for us,” he said. “The community really heard what we needed and came through.” Aside from financial donations, D’Souza said the toys that were given were “incredible.” “Wow – the volume of toys we received, and the quality of the toys we received, was just remarkable,” he said. “A massive thank you to the community for that. They weren’t just picking up the first thing they saw, but really thinking about what the kids would want and what we needed.” In all, the bureau helped 1,142

families or a total of 3,913 people. It was a transitional year for the bureau: after years of offering food gift cards along with toys, they decided to refocus on their core services and goals. “We changed the program this year in terms of what we were offering and then created some new partnerships with other (community agencies),” said D’Souza, “so we could then direct people to those other organizations for different services if that’s what they needed.” For example, they teamed up with the Salvation Army for food hampers and Computers for Kids. “That was really successful and helped us really focus on our

goals. We’re really focusing on looking at what we can do help people out of poverty, to make those transitions, and partnering (with other groups) has helped,” he said. He said that the renewed focus on helping to lift people out of poverty is a message that has resonated with the community. “I think everyone sees the value in breaking those cycles, especially generational poverty, and giving people the support to do that,” he said. This year will be a transition of a different kind for the bureau: in the fall, Burnaby Community Connections – which runs the bureau, as well as a variety of other programs – will be moving Last week’s question Are you looking forward to Target opening in Burnaby?

into a long-awaited permanent location at Rosser Avenue and Lougheed Highway. D’Souza said they’ll be letting the community know when they’re in that new space and hope to host an open house at that time. “We really want to invite the people in, to have some of that community dialogue and talk about our services and what kinds of services people need,” he said. In the meantime, it’s not too late to support the bureau and the work of Burnaby Community Connections generally. To find out more, see www. burnabycommunityconnections. com.

Michael J. Fox Theatre turns 20

or the past two decades, Burnaby’s performing arts scene has had a home at the Michael J. Fox Theatre. The 613-seat venue has seen it all over the years. “Pretty much everything from little kindergarten shows to body building championships,” said director of operations, Jim Dobbs. This year, the theatre is celebrating its 20th anniversary and hosting some unique events, including an entire season of Cantonese opera. The theatre is also host to the school ON MY BEAT district’s Young Marelle Reid People’s Concerts, a three-part series for intermediate grades that put on a variety show with 6,000 students performing in one week. The theatre hosts more than 400 shows a year – which means more than three shows per day on some days – as well as being used as a meeting space for business or community groups. “The Burnaby Board of Trade loves us, for example, because we’re bringing people into Burnaby all the time,” said Dobbs. “We’ll get people in from Abbotsford and the Tri-Cities, New Westminster and the North Shore, Richmond, Delta.” First opened as part of the newly-constructed Burnaby South Secondary School in 1993, the Michael J. Fox Theatre was established by the Burnaby school district as The Theatre at Burnaby South. Four schools in the district had been collapsed into one to open the new school, and with the four combined budgets, there was enough in the school district’s coffers to fund the new theatre, said Dobbs, who has been a member of the board from the beginning. “We were basically able to get a Cadillac instead of a Ford,” he said. “We were able to make an upgrade from an auditorium into a full-on professional theatre.” The theatre was designed with input

In the spotlight: Jim Dobbs, director of operations at the Michael J. Fox Theatre, inside the well-known local arts venue that is celebrating its 20th anniversary. The theatre hosts more than 400 shows a year and attracts theatregoers from all over.

from the B.C. Provincial School For the Deaf, which has its campus at the school. Sightlines from every seat are equally good because, for those who are deaf or hard of hearing, having a good view of the stage is imperative, Dobbs noted. One of the theatre’s main objectives is to support local artists. The slogan or motto for the theatre is, “Fostering excellence. Building community.” Unlike “presenting” theatres, which search out performers to book for their stage, the Michael J. Fox Theatre is a “roadhouse” theatre, which means it is available for bookings by any group in the local,

regional or even international arts community. Though it has always been a wellused resource, it was not until the theatre changed its name that it began to see the numbers of bookings it still sees today. “Mike is a super guy,” said Dobbs. “He obviously has some Burnaby history as well. His mother still lives here, and he still drops by periodically to visit.” Michael J. Fox has visited the theatre a couple of times since it took on his name, and he started a scholarship for local arts students in the mid-’90s, which the society has continued on an annual basis to support those who want to pursue fine arts at

the post-secondary level. This year, the board is looking forward to welcoming the public and the performers in what will be a memorable year on the stage, said Dobbs. “The 20th year is going to be a bit of a celebration year, so we’ll be liaising with many of our clients and presenters to help them make their events just a little bit extra special this year – what we call signature events,” he said. For a full listing of upcoming events at the theatre, visit the website, www. michaeljfoxtheatre.ca.

Going to new heights in Burnaby Heights Janaya Fuller-Evans

staff reporter

Heights in the Heights could change now that Burnaby council has passed a motion to vary the number of storeys allowed for development in the area. Building heights along the Hastings Street corridor have been limited to four storeys and 52.5 feet, as part of the Hastings Street area plan, adopted by council in 1991. The new policy plan would allow for a fifth storey, a residential mezzanine floor, in the rear portion of new developments.

Burnaby council passed a motion approving plans to extend the city’s current contract with the British Columbia Society for the

We’re sure we’ll hear all about this great new addition to the provincial calendar in the lead-up to the election in May. It certainly sounds family-friendly and that seems to be a key theme for Christy Clark these days. Truth be told, we have long advocated that B.C. follow the lead of other provinces in creating an additional statutory holiday during this winter period – so kudos to the Liberals for having done so. But it doesn’t alleviate our concerns about how families are truly faring in this province.

With so many challenges in funding for education, in the lack of access to quality child care, in services for children with developmental disabilities of all kinds, in job development, in health care access – just to name a few – it’s hard to get too excited about Family Day. As much as we’ll enjoy that extra day off work like many will, we’d still prefer to have enough funding and attention to the critical issues facing our province to make every day a good day for families in B.C.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Mum on tanker traffic increase

Dear Editor:

I see that Kinder Morgan just announced increased oil tanker traffic, with nary a peep from anyone. Come on, you Burrard Inlet community residents (BICRes), rise up and scream at our slumbering leaders – Kinder Morgan must move all their facilities to Roberts Bank. Yes, a coal conveyor system was destroyed recently at Westport by a bulk coal carrier – but consider the Second Narrows CN rail bridge in Burrard Inlet – a much larger conveyor system – being damaged or taken out. Result: a huge impact on port rail and shipping commerce while the bridge is repaired

and the spill cleanup. How many years would the black goo linger on beaches ? “It won’t happen,” they will tell us. “We’ll use X tugs and Y pilots on each tanker” – I’m not convinced. There is lots of traffic in Burrard Inlet; you know, cruise ships, float planes, barges, ferries, many bulk carriers and freighters lying about here and there, stuff like that. And yes, even the many small fishing vessels and pleasure craft. The Westport coal carrier was accompanied by a tug and a pilot was aboard we’re told. In another recent incident, Prince Rupert’s “SAFE” harbour, a large cargo carrier changed course to avoid colliding with a fishing craft and then went aground.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Tankers could be trouble continued from page 6

Things do happen. Our decision-makers need to insist that Kinder Morgan reduce, not increase, the probability and magnitude of a spill incident in our waters. And now, would someone please tell us who’ll pay for spill cleanup? Can you hear the silence? Is anyone listening or does anyone care? Come on, BICRes – start screaming. Send your concern to any BICRes you know – flood their in-baskets – and be sure to CC your area leaders. Carl Shalansky, North Vancouver

Stop spending our money Dear Editor:

It is time for the City of Burnaby to stop spending and taxing. I cannot manage my family budget this way because I do not have unlimited resources – neither does the city. The taxpayers are tired. The city may say we have important projects that must be done, well, manage with what you have. Most of us do. Management is a big issue. Someone

is on this subject. For a fair and effective carbon tax in B.C., some reforms are needed before we continue to increase the tax. First of all, the tax should be expanded to cover all industrial emissions, including process emissions (much of which are in the oil and gas sector) that currently go untaxed. They should also apply the tax to B.C.’s exports of coal and natural gas (at least until importing jurisdictions have their own equivalent tax.) Second, to make the tax more fair, the existing lowincome carbon tax credit must be fixed, by increasing payments substantially and making them available to more households further up the income ladder. Additional credits to households in rural communities should be provided, since transportation

brought to my attention that some city services are given to people for free, people with little or no income. Those same people have high income somewhere else, and possibly there are other loopholes that need to be plugged. That is where prudent management comes in.

Dear Editor:

Spending time in a mall is not my thing. My Christmas shopping is usually completed well before the beginning of December. This year, however, I had to make about 10 trips to Coles at Lougheed Mall. What a delightful experience every single time! The welcoming atmosphere was refreshing. I received assistance from eight different staff members and they all went out of their way to be positive, cheerful, and very helpful. Their work ethic was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. Actually, nothing was any trouble. Kudos and thank you to all the staff in Coles at Lougheed Mall. Ila Appleby, Burnaby

alternatives are not readily available. A redesigned carbon credit could be designed, for example, so that the bottom half of households would receive a credit that, on average, is larger than carbon tax paid (meaning, they would be net beneficiaries), while 80 per cent of households would receive at least some amount. Under such an approach, the heavy lifting is accomplished by households with higher incomes – those who already have the largest carbon footprints. Third, we need to use carbon tax revenues to support complementary climate actions like building retrofits and public transit, as Metro Vancouver mayors have urged. Using the revenues to build the infrastructure we need for the 21st century would also support tens of thousands of new green jobs – far more than B.C.

would see from building new fossil fuel infrastructure in the form of pipelines and liquid natural gas facilities. Continuing with annual $5 increases would lead to a carbon tax of $50 per tonne by 2016. Expanded to cover all industrial emissions, it would raise more than $2 billion per year. Applying the tax to exports could raise several billion more because B.C.’s exported emissions from coal and natural gas are much larger than emissions within B.C. This is a win-win opportunity for B.C. We can wean our economy and export profile off of polluting fossil fuels, create new jobs and be global climate leaders, fuelled by a progressive carbon tax system that reduces inequality as it raises the price of emitting greenhouse gases.

Nelson development to go ahead, despite concerns Janaya Fuller-Evans

staff reporter

Plans for a 38-storey tower and three-storey townhouses on two properties on Nelson Avenue are going ahead despite a handful of concerns brought forward by area residents. The rezoning application, put forward by developer Concord Pacific, went to second reading at Monday night’s council meeting. The primary concerns regarding the properties at 6530 and 6550 Nelson Ave. focused on the density and shape of the building, loss of the rental housing currently on the two properties, vehicle access and traffic safety, and construction impacts, according to a report from the city’s planning and building department. The concerns are related to the proposed density and shape of the building related to the amenity density bonus, and the form of the building in relationship to the neighbourhood, the report stated. The development plan is consistent with council’s

policies on density and the plan for the Metrotown area, Lou Pelletier, director of building and planning, stated in the report, and the value of the amenity bonus would be $9.5 million. Residents were also concerned about the loss of one 19-unit low-rise and one 57unit low-rise rental apartment building on the properties. “While no purpose-built rental units are proposed for the subject development, a percentage of the units within the proposed building will likely be allocated for market rental use,” the report stated, adding within apartment towers, 15 to 17 per cent of units are usually rented out. The report also addressed the issue of housing affordability in Burnaby and listed a number of actions the city has taken to deal with the problem. The proximity to Lobley Park and neighbouring buildings was worrisome to some residents, particularly regarding trees and nearby creeks. However, the developer did hire an arborist to estab-

Committee: Undecided continued from page 1

“I can’t talk about who voted how, but this committee of five did not reappoint him. That was in December when that decision was made. The question is whether the committee reconsiders the vote,” Corrigan said, adding she couldn’t comment further, as the committee’s work was in-camera. “What I can say is that we, as a caucus, have supported John Doyle. We think he’s done an excellent job,” Corrigan said. Corrigan said the committee members were given an hour’s notice of Clark’s plan before their meeting started. “Did she come up with this over coffee this morning? I have no idea. It’s not something that has been thought out,” Corrigan said. Clark would have to bring the legislation in during the spring session. Corrigan said the committee members have the option of reconsidering their vote, which means they could possibly recommend that Doyle stay. The premier’s office did not return calls. -With files from The Vancouver Sun

lish a tree protection and removal plan, the report stated, and engineers would be required to certify the structure. Regarding traffic concerns and vehicular access, the report stated that access to the development site on Dunblane Avenue and Grimmer Street was the best option, and engineering staff would review the access plan. The report also stated that the 312-unit development would not generate significant traffic and park-

ing impacts in the area. And finally, the report addressed concerns about the impact of construction on the neighbourhood, stating developers are not required to provide compensation for such impacts – in response to one resident – but do have to comply with Burnaby’s noise bylaw and sediment control requirements. The development would provide benefits to the area, the report added, as the developer is pursuing Leadership in Energy

Seeing differently:

Artist Steve Quattrocchi, seen here with one of his paintings, is legally blind and has no depth perception, yet he taught himself formal anatomy and perspective and pursued a life as an artist. He now runs Artists Helping Artists, a Burnaby-based art studio that provides an inclusive space for people with disabilities to explore their creative passions. Larry Wright/ burnaby now

Creating an inclusive arts space Local art studio offers welcoming space for people with disabilities Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Steve Quattrocchi was a teenager, fresh out of high school, when he signed up for art classes at Emily Carr College of Art and Design in Vancouver. It was the late `80s, and Quattrocchi, who was legally blind with no depth perception, was pulled aside by an instructor who suggested he drop the classes. “He was basically saying because of your unique situation, you would be better off pursuing self-study than going into formal education,” Quattrocchi says. The talk was by no means meant to be discouraging. The instructor liked Quattrocchi’s work; he was simply suggesting a more suitable path for someone who was visually impaired and passionate about art. “I approached things in a very Cezanne-ish way,” Quattrocchi says. “Because of my eyesight, I can’t do a lot of detail work.” Quattrocchi then had to teach himself formal anatomy and perspective – things he would likely

Jan ken pon!

If you’re looking for something fun to do with the kids on B.C.’s first ever Family Day long weekend, the Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre is hosting Jan Ken Pon on Saturday, Feb. 9. “It’s our ninth year doing it,” said Nichola Ogiwara, museum programmer at the centre. “We introduce more traditional Japanese toys, toys that are made out of wood

and paper – no computer games – and there are lots of hands-on crafts where you came make your own toys.” Jan ken pon is the Japanese version of rock, paper, scissors, and the highlight of Family Fun Day is a rock, paper, scissors tournament with prizes. There will also be traditional Japanese toys out for kids to play with. The event is on Saturday, Feb. 9 from 1 to 4 p.m. Admission is free for adults, but $5 for children (or $4 in advance) to cover the cost of supplies. The event is best suited for children aged 4 to 12. Advance tickets are available online at www.centre. nikkeiplace.org/jan-kenpon-2013. Do you have something you would like to share?

seizures. Forseth describes the studio as a warm, welcoming environment, where people help each other out and socialize. “It’s a great way to express myself,” says Forseth. “They don’t force you. They just ask you to try, and if you can’t, you just go home, (but) at least you tried.” Quattrocchi says he sees growth in people as artists because they get to pursue their own goals with support. “If they want to learn how to paint a water colour sky, we have people who can show them. We try to offer workshops and things, but we try to only direct people if they want to be directed, and we find that freedom people have tends to stimulate their creativity and they tend to go in directions they don’t normally go,” he says. Artists Helping Artists has been at the Royal Oak location since October. Before that, the studio was

at BACI’s headquarters on Norland Avenue, and before that in the Burnaby Heights Resource Centre, an old school that community groups were using before it was torn down in 2010. Quattrocchi prefers the new space on Royal Oak, as it’s more accessible to street traffic. He’s hoping Artists Helping Artists will become a staple in the community. “Because we are just in the new location, we are still developing that, but our goal is to be a place where people can drop in and have a cup of tea and look at the art and chat, and to be a resource centre for the community as a whole, rather than just our members,” he says. Quattrocchi’s experience of being visually impaired and pursuing art helps him help other artists. “It really helps me in this job because I’ve had to do it all myself, adapt methods to my own disability, my own ability.

ith all the talk about bullying these days, this event might be well worth your while. Far too often, “bullying” becomes a catch-all phrase for various forms of oppression: sexism, homophobia and racism, to name a few. Simon Fraser University is hosting a public workshop to help people stand up to oppression. The event is called Oppression: We Can End It and features slam poet Kim Vigilante and social justice facilitator Anna Soole. There will be poetry, theatre, art and

facilitated discussions to help participants better understand oppression and how to stand up for themselves and others when they see it in daily life, which is not always an easy task. SFU student Sophia Salem organized the event with the support of the Simon Fraser Public Interest Research Group, (a student group dedicated to social change), the South Burnaby Neighbourhood House and the SFU women’s centre. The Jan. 26 event runs from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It’s free, and snacks are provided. The only thing you have to do is register ahead of time at www.sfpirg.ca.

With the flu season hitting especially hard this winter, Fraser Health has declared the current influenza strain a health hazard under the Public Health Act. There have been more than 20 outbreaks at longterm care or assisted-living facilities in the Fraser region, and emergency department visits related to the flu are at their highest level in years, Fraser Health announced this week. The health authority has mandated all those visiting a residential care facility must wear a mask if they have not had a flu shot. Fraser Health is also urging anyone who is feeling unwell to avoid these facilities. The best defense against the flu is still to get a flu shot and to wash hands frequently, said Fraser Health spokesperson Roy ThorpeDorward, as the flu season is expected to continue for at least another six weeks. Flu vaccines are available at doctors’ offices, walk-in clinics and pharmacies. For information on flu shot clinics, visit www.fraserhealth. ca.

Importance of Pet oral and dental care

Year 2013 has well and truly begun and New Year resolutions are the entire craze. While we may have set many personal and professional goals, it is important to set goals for our little four-legged friends. Dogs and cats do not need to plan on quitting smoking or be in charge of their gym and play schedule, and they definitely do not know the importance of brushing their teeth every night.

While you may set more than one resolution in order to give your pet a healthy lifestyle – an important one to include would be improved dental and oral care. Dental disease is the most commonly recorded medical problem during vet visits for both cats and dogs. With our own health, good pet health care starts with the mouth and oral care. So, how can you improve your pet`s oral and dental health? In addition to daily brushing of the teeth (using a dog or cat toothbrush and toothpaste), it is important to make healthy choices when it comes to dental treats and chew toys. Ensure that such treats and toys are safe for your pet based on ingredients; and the size, temperament and needs of your pet.

your veterinarian for a detailed dental and oral exam. This will help assess if your pet needs a dental cleaning (ideally under general anaesthesia) prior to initiating a routine oral care program. Most veterinary clinics offer dental exam and dentistry discounts this time of the year, in order to increase awareness regarding dental disease in pets. Be sure to make the most of this opportunity to initiate a conversation and learn more about oral care from a veterinarian. Most pet store dental chews and treats will work for healthy pets, along with daily brushing of the teeth. If your pet has been diagnosed with a medical condition or if tooth-brushing is not an option due to a lack of compliance by your pet, a diet such as Hill`s T /D or Royal Canin – Medical Dental formula may be right for your pet. It is important to remember that regular teeth-brushing is vital - if you brush your pets` teeth any less than every other day, you are better off not brushing them at all. A good pet oral health program is literally in your hands.

Also, it would be wise to take your pet to

How did crooks turn on light in locked car? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! – Kat

CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: I am a prosecutor in Florida, and I’ve been stumped by a very interesting issue that’s arisen in a case of mine. A team of burglars broke into an elderly woman’s house using a distraction scheme. The accomplice rang the woman’s doorbell and told her the dome light in her 2002 Buick LeSabre was on. She went out to her car and saw that, in fact, the dome light was on. She unlocked her car door (the car does not have keyless entry, and she says she always keeps the car doors locked) and was unable to shut off the light. The accomplice offered to help and did manage to turn off the light. While this was going on, the burglar was inside ransacking the home. The victim insists she did not leave her dome lights on accidentally. Assuming the victim is correct that her car was locked and that she did not accidentally leave the lights on, how did the burglar and his accomplice manage to turn on the lights? If this case goes to trial, I would really love to explain this to the jury.

TOM: Well, I don’t know exactly what they did, but we have to assume that if they’re willing to fool an old lady and ransack her home, they’re probably not opposed to using a $10 Slim Jim to jimmy open a locked car door. RAY: It’s quite easy to do, especially on older cars. TOM: Then, once they’re in, they can turn on the dome light using the headlight switch, re-lock the door and close it again. And voila, they have their pretext. RAY: What I don’t know is how they made it difficult for her to turn off the dome light. There’s no quick, easy way to do that. It’s possible that the lady simply wasn’t familiar with the dome-light switch and knew only that the dome light comes on when the doors are opened. Perhaps they just took advantage of her lack of knowledge. TOM: Or perhaps they tinkered with, or removed, one of the switches in the doorjamb that tell the dome light that the door is closed. That’s the kind of thing that can be done and undone in a matter of minutes if they were willing to risk a procedure that took

Drive with extra caution in the dark The days may be slowly getting brighter, but ICBC is still warning drivers to proceed with caution during the winter. In Metro Vancouver, the average number of crashes in which a pedestrian is injured doubles in November and December compared to July and August, according to an ICBC press release. Last fall’s pedestrian incidents across the province serve as a strong reminder that as weather conditions deteriorate, drivers and pedestrians need to be extra careful on our roads to help keep pedestrians safe. “At this time of year, it’s more important than ever for drivers to slow down and be prepared to stop for pedestrians,” John Dickinson, ICBC’s director of road safety, said in the release. “Pedestrians should use designated crossing points only, make eye contact with drivers and add reflective gear to clothing whenever possible. We want to help prevent these tragedies so we’re urging drivers and pedestrians to use extra caution.” Visit www.icbc.com, for more tips on how to keep safe. – editorial@burnabynow.com

that long. RAY: You’ll have to get more information from the victim and find out how she tried to turn off the dome light, and what finally worked. If you write back to us with more info, we’ll try to help you piece it together.

TOM: Then my brother will come down and testify against them. RAY: Yeah. In exchange for half of the loot. Good luck, Kat. Hope you put ’em away. ◆ Tom and Ray share secrets on how you can save tens of

There’s meaning behind those car emblems David Chao

s I glanced over my shoulder to change lanes, a shiny red BMW M3 zoomed by me as if being swept by a tornado. The car appeared to be in perfect condition, but then I quickly noticed the missing blue-and-white emblems from not only the hood and the trunk, but from all four crosslaced aluminum wheels as well. “Poor guy,” I murmured, knowing that this BMW was another victim of vandals who snatch emblems and logos to make fashionable necklaces and belt buckles. But how many of us, including the vandals, actually know the meaning behind emblems that represent these automobiles? Some have a long history behind them, while others portray something fairly simple. Since many of the automotive emblems are obvious (such as Ford and Nissan who spell out their names), only the interesting and unusual ones will be discussed here.

The Japanese manufacturers have brought a number of unique, innovative vehicles to the market in the past several years, including the Toyota Prius, Scion FR-S, and Nissan Leaf models. However, I wish they had used more imagination with their emblems. Many of them are similar in

design, utilizing some kind of symbol inside an ellipse – all chrome-plated. Nevertheless, they do have a meaning behind them. Toyota’s logo, for example, consists of three ellipses, whose two central points represent the heart of their customers and products.

The ellipses symbolically join the two hearts, according to Toyota. Also, you can see the ellipsoidal-shaped “T” inside the large ellipse. Acura’s emblem is perhaps simpler to decipher. The word Acura symbolizes accuracy or accurate, and the emblem therefore depicts a caliper (an instru-

ment used to measure objects accurately). Imagine standing in the middle of a road, and looking straight ahead where the road seems to go on infinitely. That’s the symbolic shape of Infiniti’s logo: the road to infinity. Mazda’s logos have an interesting history. Many years ago, Mazda launched a new emblem for the export market. It was supposed to depict “the sun and a flame standing for heartfelt passion.” Whatever that means. Then Mazda had to quickly alter the logo by rounding off the diamond inside the ellipse because the emblem was similar to Renault’s corporate logo (and they threatened to sue). So in 1998, Mazda redesigned the symbol once again. ◗Emblem Page 23

Emblem: More than just a simple status symbol ◗ continued from page 18

The new version, which was developed by a wellknown corporate identification creator in Japan (Rei Yoshimura), shows a “V” in the centre of “M.” According to Mazda, it stands for creativity, flexibility and vitality. Unlike the previous emblem, the new brand symbol is being used for all Mazda products throughout the world. Subaru’s emblem is one of the more distinctive ones, with six stars representing the original five companies that merged in 1953 to form a sixth – Fuji Heavy Industries. Subaru, by the way, appropriately means “unite” in Japanese. What about the American brands? You bet, they’ve got plenty of history behind their logos too. Cadillac’s original crest, which is considerably more elaborate yet very regal in appearance, is really the coat of arms of Le Sieur Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac.

He was a French explorer who established the Ville d’Etroit in 1701. Recently, Cadillac introduced a revised new emblem for its cars. Although its basic design is similar to the old one, the new version boasts a more slick, modernized look that should appeal to the younger crowd. Chevrolet’s logo is much more unpretentious than Cadillac’s and simply designates a “bow tie.” Pontiac’s is simple too. Its stylized arrowhead was adopted after first appearing on the rear fenders of the 1954 Pontiac Star Chief. Chrysler’s Pentastar emblem was created by the Lippincott & Margulies design team, who wanted to symbolize Chrysler’s products as progressive and contemporary. The jewel-like clarity of the mark’s outline is supposed to reflect Chrysler’s precision-engineering traits. Many years ago, how-

ever, Chrysler began using a different logo for its products. More nostalgic and rich looking, the new corporate symbol was developed by “bringing back” an old, classic emblem from Chrysler’s past. European automakers’ insignia have more history and are probably more easily recognized. For example, virtually everyone recog-

nizes Rolls Royce’s Spirit of Ecstasy and Mercedes’ three-pointed star. The idea for Mercedes-Benz’s three-pointed star originated from a postcard that Mr. Daimler sent to his wife. On it, he drew a guiding star and wrote, “A star shall arise from here, and I hope that it will bring blessings to us and to our children.” The form of the star,

which was registered in 1909, was intended to symbolize the three-fold nature of transport motorization: on land, sea and in the air. BMW produced aircraft engines during the Second World War, and the shape of the propeller became BMW’s famous symbol. Audi’s “interlocking rings” denote the four companies, DKW, Horch, Wanderer and Audi,

which pooled resources together during the 1930s to cope with the Great Depression. So here we have it. Every company trying to symbolically, historically, or visually represent themselves through a shiny piece of metal (actually plastic nowadays). Let’s just hope the teenage vandals will stop trying to do the same.

Decades of sales: Realtor Gary Love at a Dalebright Drive home he has sold six times in 41 years, watching it grow in value from $40,000 to more than $1 million.

B.C.’s real estate crash – Love managed to sell it for $175,000. He wasn’t involved in the next sale in 1994, and for a decade, the house suffered under absentee landlords. The yard grew mangy and the once-gleaming house seemed to droop from neglect. So when the phone rang in 2004, the bungalow on Dalebright was the furthest thing from Love’s mind. Penny Chisholm bought the home for $467,000, and for almost four years it was a comfy home for her growing family. “It became too small for us, so we sold it and moved to a bigger house, still in this

neighbourhood,” said Chisholm of the house her family sold for $750,000. “I just found out that it sold again and Gary had sold it for the sixth time.” Chisholm said she has met the people she sold the house to because they have children going to the same school, and she is interested to see who are the new owners of her old home. The house was listed at $1,098,000 and has a B.C. Assessment value of $1,013,000. It sold for $1,018,000 on Oct. 30 and the new owners took possession on Jan. 9, 2013. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

Byrne dramatics steal South win Tom Berridge sports editor

The Byrne Creek Bulldogs won a game, they should never have lost and ultimately had no business winning. But the Bulldogs found a way through senior guard Ian Soriano, who stole an inbounds pass with half-a-second left on the clock and scored the go-ahead bucket to lead Byrne Creek to a 60-56 victory over the visiting Burnaby South Rebels in district high school boys’ basketball on Wednesday. “In the last couple of years with this group, they would have lost (the game) and that says a lot,” said Byrne Creek coach Wayne Best. Byrne Creek jumped on the Rebels early in the regular season matchup, taking a 21-15 lead after a 12-point, first-quarter contribution from senior Nathal George. But South buckled down on defence and began to find its range in the ensuing quarters, shaving the

UNIVERSITY BASKETBALL

Clan lose close one at the buzzer Simon Fraser University dropped its first game in Great Northwest conference play following a 5957 loss at the buzzer to No. 11-ranked Western Washington University on Saturday. Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe picked up her ninth double-double of the season and 50th over her collegiate career, leading all Clan players with 14 points and 21 rebounds. Kristina Collins and Erin Chambers added 13 and 11 points, respectively, to the SFU scoreline. In a low scoring, defensively played first half, SFU took a 29-23 advantage into the dressing room at the half-time interval. But Western Washington opened the second half on a 12-5 run and held onto a slim lead until Chambers hit a three-pointer with less than seven minutes left to regain the lead for the visiting Clan. SFU kept the lead until the final minute, setting up a wild finish. Raincock-Ekunwe tied the score on a layup with just six seconds left on the

clock, but the home team took back the lead on a twopointer from Britt Harris as time expired. SFU’s conference record fell to 4-1 and 11-2 overall, following the loss.

Goal getter:

Burnaby Girls Elite Eva Custeau, in white, scored the gamewinning goal in a 2-0 under-14 Metro soccer victory against Richmond at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-West last Sunday.

Delayed downer

The Clan men dropped a rare weekday matinee matchup 85-75 to Northwest Nazarene last Friday. The game, which began last Thursday evening, was halted due to a power outage and postponed until the following afternoon. Elijah Matthews led the Clan with 19 points, while Anto Olah added 18 points and eight rebounds. Taylor Dunn chipped in with 16 points. The following night, SFU lost a closer 89-84 decision to Central Washington in conference play at home. Dunn led the Clan with 24 points. Olah and Matthews had 14 and 13 points, respectively. Dillon Hamilton also scored in double figures with 10 points. The losses dropped SFU’s overall record to 5-7.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Cancer June 21-July 22: The month ahead features sex, intimacy, high finance (investments, debt, etc.) mysteries and research, health diagnosis, lifestyle changes, commitment and consequence. This area is super-charged now; testosterone is high; so is human attraction. You could be tempted to stray. Investing in (or researching in) your career can yield benefits. Sunday’s friendly, happy, but avoid practical goals. Retreat to rest, plan, and fulfill old obligations Monday/Tuesday: you might receive a “gift” for your charitable or spiritual efforts. Your energy and charisma soar Wednesday eve to Friday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks ahead emphasize relationships, opportunity and opposition, negotiation, dealings with the public, relocation possibilities and fresh new horizons. You feel ambitious Sunday, but a nice rest will gain more. Your popularity rises Monday to Wednesday. Social delights, light romance, entertainment, optimism and wish fulfillment flow in. Someone you meet or woo could be a potential, viable life mate. Retreat Wednesday night to Friday: rest, contemplate, plan, be spiritual, charitable. Your energy, charisma and timing soar Saturday – approach someone to solve a problem. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Sunday’s mellow, loving, but don’t start major projects – contemplate, or read. Be ambitious Monday to Wednesday – great luck accompanies you. A month of work and health concerns has just begun (Jan. 19) and this dovetails splendidly with your career, prestige and status desires. Monday/Tuesday (not so much Wednesday) are one of the prime intervals in this trend – if you work eagerly, you gain. Approach higher-ups with a plan or proposal those two days. Friends, popularity and optimism visit you Thursday/Friday. Retreat for some “down time” Saturday. Contemplate love barriers.

Aries March 21 - April 19: The weeks ahead bring social joys, popularity, entertainment, light romance, group activities and wish fulfillment – in an even stronger dose than most Januaries/Februaries. Life seems worthwhile again! Though the pressure is off at work, bosses still favour you, so a moment of socializing with them (say Monday, Tuesday) can’t hurt. Sunday’s for shopping – early, before ten. Travel, paperwork, casual friends, errands and variety fill Monday/Tuesday – be curious. Head for home Wednesday eve to Friday: be sluggish, recuperate, nurture family. Romance crescendos Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: An ambitious month begins. Your energy and magnetism are tops Sunday, but there’s little worth doing. Charge after money and possessions Monday/Tuesday – a great two days for investments, wiping out debt and sensual gratification. Your career and social reputation face a lucky opening. Trips, errands, paperwork and casual friends/siblings fill Wednesday eve to Friday: good mixes with bad, so be on your toes. Legal and governmental zones might not go well, but your career faces even more opportunity, If you have an ambitious hunch, act on it without delay. Home, family Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: The weeks ahead feature intellectual activities, far travel, love and weddings, cultural projects, higher learning, religion, philosophy, insurance and statistics. The small of these will proceed swiftly, but the big is sluggish, will grow Jan. 30 onward. Retreat and rest Sunday: DON’T handle sharp equipment. Your energy, magnetism, sense of timing and effectiveness soar Monday/Tuesday: start new projects, declare your love, see and be seen (and heard!). Chase money Wednesday eve to Friday noon: open doors and barriers mingle: buy cautiously. Errands and friends, Saturday.

Jan. 20 - Jan. 26, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of romance, creativity, of pleasure, charming children and speculative urges starts now. Indulge some of those speculative urges – you’re on a winning streak! There will be a bump, especially around Jan. 30 (next week) – one that might raise the problem of money or unequal socio-economic positions. And in general, if you want to turn love into living (i.e., co-habitation) or marriage, you face problems involving domesticity: where you live, or step-kids, etc. Still, you could hardly pick a better time this decade, to love and mate! Monday/Tuesday show how/why. Lucky! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Until late February, examine your relationships and projects – jettison the old, stale and unworkable, to make room for the new little green shoots that you now must nurture. Err on the side of gentleness in this, for you are temperamental all January in domestic and other situations – “dumping someone” roughly can create a long-term enemy. At home, kindness is key. In gardening, go light on fertilizer. Sunday’s intriguing but without result. Sexual urges, mysteries, high finance, investments, fill Monday-Wednesday – luckily so! Mellow thoughts late week. Be ambitious Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The weeks ahead fill with casual friends, siblings, errands, short trips, communications, details, reports and paperwork. It’s a very busy but not terribly important time. Send “love letters” over the two weeks ahead, both literally and metaphorically (e.g., the right glance or tone of voice is a “letter” also). Tackle routine chores Sunday – nothing big. Relationships excite and are splendidly lucky Monday/Tuesday – be eager to join, diplomatic, flexible: others hold the power. Deeper themes – sex, intimacy, financial commitments – need caution late week. Mellow joy Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The month ahead features money and possessions. You have already experienced heightened money flows since late December: now these become more serious, as your “net worth” is affected. So it’s very important to stop useless, nervous or frivolous outflows, and to invest, if you do, carefully.The best time to invest for machinery, tools, work is Monday/Tuesday – two great days to apply for employment or begin a project, also. The best time for other types of investment (or reducing debt) is January 27. Sunday’s beautiful but useless. Relationships demand care Thursday/Friday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your energy, effectiveness, timing and charisma reach a yearly high over the next few weeks. Start important projects, see and be seen, vie for romance (one of the bigger ones of your life seems likely to arrive, or has arrived, between June 2012 and June 2013). Ask favours, they’ll be granted. Sunday’s for rest, period. Romance, a creative surge, charming kids, speculative success, fill a splendidly lucky Monday/ Tuesday (and Wednesday, but with little result). Tackle chores Thursday/Friday – keep an eye on safety. Relationships contain a hidden barrier Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Withdraw mildly now to late February. This is your recuperation time of year: rest, protect your health, contemplate where you stand now and make plans for future action. Be charitable, spiritual – it will come back to you. You feel like visiting or communicating Sunday: little result. Charge into domestic, real estate, gardening, nutrition, children, security and retirement zones Monday/Tuesday – you’ll succeed, in major ways! Romantic notions, creative urges and pleasure drives swell Thursday/Friday, but you might be wise to let these remain notions only. Tackle chores Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
