City MLA excited about gas plan Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Richard Lee, MLA for Burnaby North, is welcoming several initiatives in Tuesday’s throne speech, including a new “prosperity fund” to save the profits from liquid natural gas exports. “There were quite a few initiatives in the throne speech. The emphasis is on liquid natural gas. That will create many jobs and attract investment,” Lee said. “There will be more investment coming. In the next 30 years, the estimate is there will be $1 trillion dollars to the GDP.” The speech, read by the lieutenant-governor on behalf of Christy Clark’s Liberal government, announced a new “B.C. prosperity fund” to reduce provincial debt. Future royalty revenues from natural gas go into the fund, and according to the throne speech, the money could exceed $100 billion over the next three decades. “Over the next 30 years, there will be a lot of benefits to our province,” Lee said. Lee, who is the Liberals’ parliamentary secretary for Asia Pacific, also said there would be an announcement in the coming weeks regarding the government’s plan to establish B.C. as a hub for corporations, in order to attract investment from the Asia Pacific region.

Western Canada’s largest wildlife rescue facility is struggling to handle heavy caseloads and hoping Burnaby residents will volunteer to help injured and orphaned animals. The Wildlife Rescue Association of B.C., which is located next to Burnaby Lake, is preparing for the busy summer months and needs people to answer the phones. “We’re looking for people who can remain calm under stressful situations,” said volunteer coordinator Stefanie Broad.
“(The) majority of the caseload comes in the summer months when the birds migrate back up north and breed.” Last year, the association helped more than 4,000 animals. Roughly 80 per cent are birds and the remaining 20 per cent are mammals. The association receives more than 100 calls a day from people reporting animals in distress or conflicts with wildlife, and there’s only one staff member to answer them. “Hence why we need help on the help line,” Broad added. The centre put volunteer and Burnaby resident Dale Johnston on the phone lines
to help with the calls. The trial proved successful, and now the association is hoping to recruit more volunteers to answer the phones. “I got to hold a bird while they gave it an injection. If you are a transport volunteer (driving animals to the centre), you don’t get to touch the bird, let alone see it. This is way more exciting,” she said. Johnston, who has been volunteering with the association since October, mostly fields calls about injured animals or wildlife conflicts. She also does intake and makes sure the animals get help right away. Pelican Page 4

INDUSTRY VETERAN CONCERNED THAT GOVERNMENT DOES NOT RECOGNIZE VALUE OF FILM IN B.C.
Locals in film biz want ‘level playing field’ Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
After 40 years of working in films, Cody Tabois saw the industry go through many changes. But the current issues in B.C. particularly worry the Burnaby resident, who stopped working about five years ago. “It was people that started in the industry early and sort of developed everything and got it where it is now, and it would be a darn shame if we didn’t get the support to continue with this,” he said in a phone interview with the NOW. Tabois has worked in transportation, special effects, construction and has also done camera work for the industry in the past, he said. The provincial government began supporting the industry in the late ’80s, according to Tabois, who said that support began to wane once the Liberals were elected. The lack of incentives for productions filmed in B.C., as well as the imminent return to the provincial sales tax, have made B.C. less competitive with other locations, he added. “What we’re asking for here in B.C. – it’s an old cliché, I guess – is to have a level playing field,” he said. It isn’t just the film industry that suffers if productions aren’t filmed here, he pointed out, but all of the supporting industries, as well. “There are 25,000 people that work in the industry and on top of that, all of the other businesses - the suppliers, the lumber yards - they’re all based and now geared to supply the film industry,” Tabois said. “If that disappears, there’s going to be a lot of people out of jobs, not just in the film industry.” Pictures take a lot more money to produce than they did when Tabois started out, he said. “I started out in the late ’60s and one of the first big films we had here was Carnal Knowledge with Jack Nicholson. ’Course, in those days, money went a lot farther. It was a $10-million picture, but there were a lot of sets built at the old Panorama Studio up in West Vancouver.” Producers want to shoot movies here because of the scenery, but they also have to consider where they’ll get the best deal, he said. While B.C. can’t necessarily compete with locations such as Louisiana, the province should be able to remain competitive with Ontario, said Peter Leitch president of Mammoth Studios in Burnaby and North Shore Studios. “With Ontario, we figure we should be on a level playing field and when I say that, we recognize that we have got

Speech: Budget tabled next week continued from page 1
“It will be exciting,” Lee said. The government also promised legislation in the coming weeks to establish the long-awaited seniors’ advocate and to address elder abuse, and Lee said there will be some resources for institutes to do more with traditional Chinese medicine. The throne speech kicked off this legislative session, which will end on March 14. The government also needs to table legislation to end the harmonized sales tax and bring back the previous two-tax system. “April 1 is the day to switch back to PST, so the house will have to pass those bills in order to make it happen,” Lee said. Burnaby Edmonds MLA Raj Chouhan was less than impressed with the speech. “A careful look at the B.C. Liberals’ throne speech will confirm that this is a government that is at the end of its mandate and disconnected from the very real challenges facing British Columbians today,” he wrote in an email from Victoria.
“The throne speech did not talk about sectors like forestry, film and television, high tech and tourism. The Liberals seem to have given up on their own goal of a comprehensive jobs plan, leaving natural gas exports as their only approach to the economy.” According to Chouhan, the Liberals have talked about the prosperity fund with great enthusiasm but there is no money attached to it. “According to the Liberals’ own plan, it would be 2016 before any money could be put into it. That will be around the next election cycle,” he said. “The Liberals’ future fantasy fund ignores the need to take care of B.C. today – for example, a real plan for skills training to ensure British Columbians are ready for the jobs of the future.” The provincial budget will also be tabled next week, and Chouhan expects a “one-time, short-sighted fire sale of assets.” To read the full text of the throne speech, go to Jennifer Moreau’s blog at www.burn abynow.com.

How do families balance work-life demands? Business groups take a closer look at what families need Janaya Fuller-Evans
The Burnaby Board of Trade is working with the Surrey Board of Trade on a position paper that could change the way businesses – and different levels of government – treat families. The two boards recently cohosted the Business and Families First Dialogue in Surrey. “It was the first step for us getting involved with Surrey on this issue,” Paul Holden, president and CEO of the Burnaby board said last week. Businesses, such as Ritchie Bros. of Burnaby, made presentations, and the audience worked in groups to present ideas on how businesses could help families strike a work/life balance, Holden said. The Burnaby board became involved through Susan
Papadionissiou, who is on Burnaby’s social development committee, is the coordinator for The Children’s Partnership for Surrey/White Rock, and is also a member of the Surrey board. Papadionissiou worked on the Surrey board’s Business and Families Position Paper, which was presented to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce last year. The Burnaby board, meanwhile, has been surveying its member businesses about work/ life balance, according to Holden, and developing its first familyfriendly business award, which was given to Pacific Blue Cross in 2012. “They have a really wide ranging suite of employee practices there that can help their employees achieve a better balance,” he said. Burnaby isn’t just focusing on the child-care aspect, he added, but is considering families who also need elder care for family members. “I think it’s important that

City not part of larger labour relations board - but still gets to vote on bylaw Even though the City of Burnaby withdrew from the Greater Vancouver Regional District’s labour relations bureau in 2010, the city still gets a vote on Metro Vancouver’s labour relations service bylaw as a board member. Burnaby council passed a motion consenting that the previous bylaw be withdrawn and a new bylaw approved. At a recent council meeting, Burnaby city manager Bob Moncur explained the bureau’s role and connection to the city, now that the city no longer uses its services to negotiate with the Canadian Union of Public Employees, Local 23. “All municipalities are connected to the labour relations bureau for so-called base
services,” he told council, adding these include a research library and materials, and investigations by an outside body. Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan pointed out smaller municipalities still use its services to negotiate with unions. The labour relations services offered by Metro Vancouver’s bureau keep municipalities connected and informed about how to deal fairly with employees, he added. “It’s important for us to remain involved in the labour relations function,” Coun. Sav Dhaliwal said. “So we can all make use of some of the analysis.” – staff reporter Janaya Fuller-Evans
child-care subsidy, we’re asking that they have some kind of child-care policy,” she added, pointing out that Canada is the only nation in the developed world that doesn’t have a childcare policy. She is more hopeful it will be accepted this time, she said, because the current chair of the Canadian chamber is Pat Horgan, a vice-president with IBM Canada. IBM Canada gave Surrey a $50,000 grant to do a smart cities survey, Huberman said, so Horgan is aware of what they discovered regarding Surrey’s child-care needs. A third of the population in Surrey is under 19, according to Huberman, and there are nine licensed childcare spaces for every 100 children in Surrey, in comparison with Vancouver, which has 18 spaces for every 100 children. “We need to be able to support our children, our youth, because they’re the future workers of our businesses,” she said.

ernment tax or royalty revenue to service the province’s prodigious debt and help pay for government operations and services. It leaves us scratching our heads, wondering why the fuss with fancy names. And while the premier’s projections of $100 billion in natural gas revenue and “tens of thousands” of jobs over the next 30 years have us all gasping in amazement, that needs to be tempered with a realization that 30 years is a long, long time, particularly in the light of an energy economy with a volatility that has
been almost as amazing as the hopes for giant natural gas windfalls. The premier’s apparent reliance on that natural gas revenue was disappointing, even for a pre-election throne speech. There didn’t seem to be much else, other than a few vague promises about legislation to help children and abused seniors. It didn’t offer much hope for those hit by B.C.’s relatively poor job-creation performance. Indeed, a promise for more realistic government advertising on that score would have been welcome. It was all mostly just gas.
A fond farewell to NOW readers IN MY OPINION Christina Myers
uring the last 10 years, I’ve written about many profoundly personal topics in this paper: post-partum depression, struggles with weight, conflicts in marriage and parenting disasters, to name just a few. And yet, none of those columns felt quite as hard to write as this one. Because as the old maxim goes, it really is hard to say goodbye. For a variety of reasons, too many to possibly detail with any accuracy, I’ll be leaving my post here today. If ever there was a moment in my life that fit the definition of bittersweet, it is this one. Sweet because, after much contemplation about life, the universe and everything, I’ve decided to step away from the work world for a time and “stay home” with my little ones, now five and two-and-a-half. I’d be lying if I said I’m not ecstatic about this and counting the days till the word “commute” means the time it takes to get from our house to the elementary school. On the other hand, it is most
definitely equal parts bitter. I have loved every moment of being part of this team and, on a more philosophical level, being part of the institution of the press, particularly on the community level. I have loved telling stories. I have loved meeting amazing people (for the record, the most amazing are usually not those in positions of great power – they are the volunteers, the quiet and hard-working people who make up a school community or a neighbourhood, the seniors with incredible life stories, the people facing illness or disease or life experiences with incredible courage). I have loved the feeling that, in some small way, my effort made a difference in someone’s life. (I’ve never been quite so moved as a writer as I was the day that several readers emailed to tell me they had cut out a column to read to their own children, in one case tucked away in a baby book until the child in question was old enough to understand.) I have loved seeing communities in action: to watch people like Jeanne Fike at Burnaby Family Life, as her incredible enthusiasm for life and people whirls its way through that organization; to have heard from people like Joan Lee, former principal at Stride Avenue

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Riding change reveals contempt Dear Editor:
Not long ago, Canada went through a process of revising the electoral riding boundaries. Here in Burnaby-Douglas, the proposal involved putting a major water barrier right through the middle of the riding. There is only one bridge linking the two parts of the riding, and you actually have to leave the riding to cross the bridge. Not surprisingly, there was huge public opposition to the proposed new boundaries. One of the main points was that, no matter where the MP’s office is located, most of the people in the riding would not be able to reasonably access it, especially if they use public transit.

Slavin REGIONAL CLASSIFIED MANAGER Trixi Agrios CLASSIFIED SUPERVISOR Dawn James CLASSIFIED REPS Darla Burns, John Taylor, ACCOUNTING Judy Sharp
Many detailed, workable proposals that would avoid running a river down the middle of the riding were submitted. Essentially, no good reasons were presented as to why this ridiculous change should take place. At the public hearing I attended, about 50 citizens spoke against the proposal. Only one person spoke for it, and the best that he could come up with was to insult the rest of us. Now the electoral boundaries commission has submitted its final proposal, and it is identical to the initial proposal. All of the citizens of Burnaby who spoke against the proposal were valued at nothing. All of the good, concrete reasons against the proposal were valued at nothing. The entire public consultation process appears to have been a sham.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Contempt for Canadians continued from page 6
With all the smart, experienced professionals on the commission, do they actually expect us to believe that the best solution they could think of was to run a river down the middle of the riding? This method of drawing random lines on a map without regard to the consequences is reminiscent of the way Hitler did things. I do not believe that the commissioners are as insane as Hitler. I do not believe that they acted without a concrete reason, and the only concrete reason that remains that can explain the choice of boundaries is an attempt to alter the electoral outcome in this riding. This is called gerrymandering, and it is one of the sleaziest political tactics, ranking right up there with the omnibus bill. Once again, this Conservative government demonstrates its contempt for the citizens of this country and for the democratic process. Victor Finberg, Burnaby
Refugees seek safe haven Dear Editor:
Re: Worried about impact, Letters to the Editor, Burnaby NOW, Jan. 30.
Coreen Kerr is right to be concerned about the state of our social security system, but refugees are not to blame here. Refugees have very limited access to income assistance from the government. If they are entitled to some form of assistance, it is usually time limited and set at the provincial social assistance rates. These rates, as many articles on the problems of poverty in Canada have demonstrated over and over again, do not meet basic survival needs (e.g. food and shelter). The most recent example demonstrating this is when B.C. MLA Jagrup Brar attempted to live off social assistance for one month and barely made it through. Refugees are also required to pay back transportation and medical costs to the government and consequently, many start their life in Canada in debt. As the Canadian Council for Refugees and many others have pointed out, Ms. Kerr’s beliefs are based on an urban myth circulating since 2004 when the Toronto Star newspaper published this mistaken information. Most refugees, as they flee their country, are not thinking about collecting an old-age pension. They are simply looking for a safe haven as they try to piece their life back together. Wendy Chan, Burnaby
Farewell: Community values continued from page 6
Community School in Burnaby, as the neighbourhood pulled together in the wake of a fire; to have felt the passion and dedication of Dave Brown at Lookout Emergency Aid Society as he recounted the ever-increasing challenges of helping the homeless; to hear the love and affection in the voice of Marion Ralston as she recalled falling in love with her husband 60 years past in a small New West ice cream parlour. These are but a few examples of the hundreds of people I’ve been lucky enough to cross paths with over the last many years, whose stories and contributions to the concept of “community” have impacted not just their own neighbourhoods, but those who read their stories – and ultimately, my own life as well. We reporters are meant to be “above the fray,” objective and impartial, to translate what we see and hear accurately and fairly
– and we certainly do that. It’s a guiding principal in our everyday actions. And yet, I could not have been true to myself, or to these wonderful communities I’ve worked in, had I not also listened to the lessons being shared by my stories’ subjects. So listen I have. And here is what I’ve heard: that life, truly, is short. That people are the most important thing in our world – both the people we know and love, but also those who we live amongst and those we may never meet. That if you feel passion for something, you pursue it; if you feel troubled by something, you learn about it; if you see a wrong, you fix it. That if no one else steps up when the time comes, you must be brave enough to do it yourself. That our communities are a family, a wagon train that – when trouble arrives – will circle to protect its own. Do these things sound cliché? Perhaps. But they’re also true.
And they’re what I’ll take with me as I pack up my last box and clear out my desk drawer. I hope they’ll inform my life and decisions as I move forward, now with more time to become engaged in my own neighbourhood and school community and family. In truth, this is an unexpected curve in a path that once seemed straight and clear. Though I can’t yet see around that bend, I know good things are waiting up ahead – and I’ll never tire of learning, of observing and ultimately of sharing stories. So perhaps, dear readers, this is not so much goodbye, but “until we meet again.” Because I suspect we will.

Bonney heads to new position
Canadian Homebuilders’ Association will welcome Brian Bonney this month Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Brian Bonney has worn many hats both in the corporate and political realms. Now, he is returning to his first love – heading a non-profit that supports small business. “It’s allowing me to get back to my roots,” said Bonney, who begins his new position as CEO of the Canadian Homebuilders’ Association of B.C. on Feb. 25. “I think this is the job I’ll retire in.” The $15-billion industry employs about 193,000 people, he said. The association doesn’t just represent homebuilders, Bonney explained, but also businesses in the sub-trades such as developers, manufacturers, suppliers, landscapers, realty firms, painters and more. The B.C. association has about 1,700 members, he said, while the national association has more than 6,800. The self-made businessman started his first business when he was 14, he said, and understood from an early age the struggles and challenges small businesses face.

Transit funding discussed to 0.5 per cent sales tax increase regionally, which could net about $250 million to help with the funding gaps to TransLink. “It’s really frustrating for me as I advocate transit, but I also advocate smart use (of funding),” Corrigan said. He also noted the provincial government has had a history of rejecting potential options made by the mayors’ council in the past. “If they reject this one they do so at their own peril,” Corrigan added. “Either the provincial gov-

The Metro Vancouver Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation has presented a large proposal listing sustainable funding options to the province for future metro Vancouver transportation projects, amongst them a potential sales tax hike. But Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said he’s always reluctant to give “more and more” funding to TransLink. The mayors’ consensus saw a proposed 0.1 or up
“wish list” of new potential projects. North Vancouver Mayor Richard Walton, who chairs the council, said the sales tax increase is only one suggestion, while the other one to note is the comprehensive road-pricing system. The system would “place a fair-shared value on the movement of goods and people on roads and rails throughout the region,” according to a Feb. 5 media release. “The mayors have been unanimous in this,” Walton told the Burnaby NOW.
ernment comes up with its own long-term strategy for the TransLink budget or take it back.” Corrigan noted that no mayor in the region is willing to re-visit the idea of looking for funding through property taxes. Last April, the council voted against a $30-million property tax levy for TransLink expansion plans at that time. “The difficulty I’ve been encountering is I’m coming from a fiscally conservative point of view and [I’m] asking them to exercise restraint,” Corrigan said of TransLink’s mounting

Amazing students are Good to Go CLASS ACT
f you had a chance to check out the 2013 PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, you may have caught a few local students on stage. Every year, Green Thumb Theatre runs “The Edge Project,” where students from different schools are invited to write and perform a play. This year’s Edge Project was performed at the PuSh festival, and Burnaby’s Cariboo Hill Secondary was one of the participating schools. In all, 75 students from Cariboo Hill, North Delta and Lord Byng created Good to Go, which chronicled the journey of a troubled hero. “They wrote and performed the play themselves – 75 students – we did this crazy kind of collective process,” said
Green Thumb’s Shawn Macdonald, who directed the play. “All of the ideas in the play and the story line came from the entire ensemble.” Macdonald presented the students with a classic “hero’s journey” story structure, and the students fleshed out the story line. The play is about a bullied teenager from a rough home, who is killed in the first act. In the second, he finds himself in a world between life and death, and he confronts his demons. In the third act, he comes back to life and deals with his problems. Macdonald estimates 500 people saw the play over the course of four performances. “It was great. The students were amazing. They did an amazing, amazing job, both with the writing and performing of this piece,” he said. “They really stepped up to the plate and delivered an amazing performance.” Green Thumb Theatre has been around since 1975 and is one of Canada’s leading theatre companies for youth. Green Thumb
runs The Edge Project to build community, expose youth to a professional theatre company and to create amazing shows, Macdonald said. For more on the company, go to greenthumb. bc.ca.
One for the history books
If you’re curious about Burnaby’s Douglas Road Elementary, one former student has created a book on the local school’s history, from 1910 to 1970. Tom Lowry, who attended Douglas Road in his youth, created a selfpublished book, which looks a bit like a fanzine, and it’s packed full of local history and lore tied to Douglas Road. Lowry, now 67 and living in Surrey, is selling copies of the book for $40. To get a copy, call him at 778-395-7705.

City teachers host meeting on school funding
Unions say province doesn’t provide enough ed. funding Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
The Burnaby Teachers’ Association and the Canadian Union of Public Employees, Local 379, will be hosting a town hall meeting on Feb. 28 to discuss education funding. Speakers include school board chair Baljinder Narang, school trustee Gary Wong, B.C. Teachers’ Federation president
Susan Lambert and John Malcolmson, a research representative with CUPE. According to the teachers’ association, the meeting will give the public the opportunity to separate fact from fiction and ask difficult questions from those in the know. “BCTF president Susan Lambert will be in Burnaby to answer questions based on her intimate knowledge of public education funding issues, as well as issues of class size and composition,” said teachers’ association president James Sanyshyn in a press release.
Penny’s demise sparks ‘Coins for a cause’ City will collect pennies to donate to United Way Stefania Seccia staff reporter
The end of the penny means a big donation for United Way. Burnaby city council recognized the de-circulation of the Canadian penny as of Feb. 4 and authorized staff to make a big round of penny collections from the city’s receipting locations, which will be donated to Burnaby’s annual United Way Campaign. The council report by the
finance and civic development committee states the collection will continue on until, “donations decrease in volume.” Effective Feb. 4, the Canadian government began the process of decirculating the Canadian penny, and the city stopped handing out the penny in change at its recreation centres and other facilities. The report recommended the city use the slogan, “Coins for a Cause,” in conjunction with the city’s United Way annual campaign. City officials are also preparing policies and procedures for the business
and operational change, utilizing guidelines provided by the 2012 Federal Action Plan for merchants and customers in Canada. This could see the rounding of cash transactions to the next denomination, the nickle. Staff members are expected to report to council annually on the amount of pennies donated. Councillors Sav Dhaliwal and Nick Volkow voted against the motion of eliminating the use of pennies, but not the donation to charity. editorial@ burnabynow.com
School boards across B.C. have been asked to find savings in their budgets so the provincial government can use that money and have more flexibility while negotiating pay increases with school support staff. However, CUPE and the teachers’ association say the provincial government isn’t providing enough funding,
and extra costs are downloaded onto school districts, which then have to cut programs and services to offset budget shortfalls. The town hall meeting will be on Thursday, Feb. 28, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Schou Education Centre at 4041 Canada Way. Coffee and snacks will be provided.

Speaking up about mental illness in schools New Fraser Health program ‘Speak Up’ allows students to talk to those who have experienced mental illness Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
You could say Aidan Scott’s struggle with mental illness traces back to when he was eight years old. That’s when the abuse started. Growing up in the Fraser Valley, the young boy kept silent about what was happening and how it affected him, but by the final year of high school, he was suffering from eating disorders, anxiety and depression. “It came to a point in Grade 12, where I stopped really wanting to get involved in my sport. I remember separating from my friends and not being social anymore. I remember feelings of hopelessness and giving up, and the main part is they really escalated and they started to snowball off each other,” he says. To make matters worse, Scott’s friends seemed unable to help or recognize signs that he was in trouble. “At that point, there was no community, there was no one to talk to. I didn’t know what was happening inside me,” he says. “It was really hard for me to articulate what I was feeling. I couldn’t really express it, and I didn’t know what was normal and what was not normal.” There was always the Kids Help Phone, but it wasn’t until Scott hit adulthood that he really started getting help from a system that seemed to be lacking in youth services. Now, at 25 years old, Scott is using what he learned from his lived experience to help other youth through a new Fraser Health Authority program called Speak Up. Speak Up pairs youth who have experienced mental illness with facilitators to talk with Grade 10 students in the Fraser Health region. The program focuses on raising awareness about mental illness and encouraging youth to share their stories and seek help. Speakers like Scott discuss their experiences and direct the audience to a related website called MindCheck.ca, where youth can learn more about eating disorders, depression, anxiety, stress, psychosis and substance abuse. Thanks to a $432,000 grant from Coast

Help for youth: Karen Tee, Fraser Health’s manager of mental health and substance abuse services for youth, with Aidan Scott, one of the presenters involved with Speak Up, a new program for high schools students in the region. Speak Up encourages youth to talk more about mental illnesses, recognize the signs and symptoms and seek help if need be.
Capital Savings, Fraser Health is bringing the program to high schools throughout the region, hoping to change the conversation on mental illness. Speak Up started in September and already came to Burnaby’s Byrne Creek Secondary in January and Burnaby North is next on the list for March. According to Fraser Health, 20 per cent of Canadians will experience mental illness at some point in their lives, and roughly 67 per cent will not seek help because of public prejudice and lack of awareness. Psychologist Karen Tee is Fraser Health’s manager of mental health and substance abuse services for youth and a leading force in creating the Speak Up team. As Tee explains, Speak Up’s goal is to intervene when people are teens or young adults, when mental illnesses often take hold. “Ages 12 to 26 is when mental health
issues start,” Tee says. “Anxiety actually starts in children, but also throughout the teenage and young adult years, and you get depression starting more so in the teenage years and psychosis in the later teen years.” Three-quarters of lifetime disorders start before the age of 24, she adds. “The primary health problem for teens and young adults is mental health,” she says. “It’s not cancer or cardio vascular disease and stuff like that, it’s actually mental health issues.” For Scott, Speak Up is also about changing the conversation and reducing fears that surround mental illness. Scott says there’s a range of severity in mental illnesses, from mild to extreme, yet it’s the extreme cases that are often portrayed in the media that generate fear and worry for youth who don’t want the stigmatizing label of “mentally ill.”
“If you remove the fears around mental health, you increase the conversation and the comfort,” he says. Scott’s real turning point was speaking out about his mental illness and the abuse he suffered in his childhood. “Speaking up is the best thing I ever did, when I finally broke the silence,” he says. Scott also guesses he would have been better off if there had been something similar to Speak Up when he was in high school. “I don’t think it’s too much to say it would have changed everything, because I instinctively know the turning point for me was when I started to have a support network, I started to have a community around me that understood,” he says. “And that’s a base thing for kids these days. They are really seeking understanding.” For more information on Mind Check, mindcheck.ca.

Stress-Free Vet Visits Going to the vet can be a stressful activity – your pet may not be feeling well, your pet may be getting injections for annual boosters, it may also be time consuming and veterinary care can be expensive. So, why not learn the art of going to the veterinarian from a Labrador – make it all about getting tummy rubs & cookies in exchange for kisses & tail wags!! For your next vet visit, why not think of the positives: you are taking your pet in to make them feel better, to protect them against illness using vaccines, and you get some additional time with your pet in today’s busy lifestyle. Moreover, you get to spend time with likeminded animal-lovers. In a veterinary setting, there is always the possibility of a stressful situation of an unexpected pet illness or worse. There is also the possibility that your pet needs anaesthesia and/or surgery, and the expense of veterinary care. Anaesthesia is scary! Anaesthetic procedures may often lead to anxiety for pet owners and questions like; Will something bad happen? Are they too old for anaesthesia? A major illness or grave prognosis brings up questions about the well-being of your pet, both long term and short term. Questions like; Is the illness treatable? Is the pet in pain, or suffering? What will the outcome be? Stress leads to negativity and vice versa. It can become a vicious cycle. Talk to your vet and trust him/her to make the best decision for you. During such trying circumstances, your veterinary care team will listen to your concerns, come up with
advice, educate you and will just be there for you. A calm, trusting pet owner goes a long way in helping a veterinarian provide their best, compassionate recommendations. Optimistic pet owners often provide good patient history and feedback so the pet does not feel negative energy. Positive pet owners are relaxed, leading to calm pets and positive outcomes. If the pet is stressed (after all, it is at the vet’s ofﬁce getting poked and prodded) and you’re calm, it tells the veterinarian that you are not associating that stress to the clinic and you trust them.
Then, there is the issue of veterinary bills. I often hear that pets get better health care than people might. But it comes at a cost. In order to prevent any ill-will with the veterinary team, it’s best to be upfront about your budget and potential ﬁnancial concerns. A veterinarian will work within your budget if reasonably possible. Remember, if you do not bring up such a discussion, the best possible vet care is always the goal. Next time you go to your veterinarian and have treatment related or ﬁnancial concerns – don’t think to yourself “no one asked me”; instead say to yourself “I will ask my vet”. You might be pleasantly surprised to ﬁnd how many veterinary professionals are willing to go above and beyond.

Take small steps to get to a good place HEALTHWISE
Dr. Davidicus Wong
re you happy with your life? If you are, congratulations! A cynic would say, “Enjoy it while you can. It won’t last.” Life can be a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows, successes and failures, good fortune and bad luck. It’s natural to react emotionally to those ups and downs in school, family, work, finances, health and relationships. We all feel grief with the loss of friends and loved ones. We feel down when we lose a job or feel lonely. We can feel anxious when the future seems uncertain and our lives feel out of our control. Sometimes we can get stuck in a negative emotional state, such as depression and anxiety. Our emotions may then limit our range of thinking, and it is our thoughts that shape the lens with which we see the world. Have you ever met someone who was chronically happy? I don’t mean euphoric, manic or unrealistically optimistic, but rather content and at peace, positive and engaged in life. They’re not on drugs, and they haven’t necessarily had easier lives than the rest of us.

Honda Accord is all grown up with new features David Chao
For more than 30 years, the Honda Accord has served North America as the bread-and-butter Japanese family car that offered great quality, superb engineering, high fuel economy, and aboveaverage practicality all mixed into an attractive package. Year-in and year-out, it defined the mid-size car segment as the Accord continued to improve. The all-new 2013 Accord sedan and coupe mark the beginning of the ninth generation of Honda’s best-selling car, and without a doubt, the best version to hit our market. Staying on top is never easy, and that’s not about to change for 2013, since there are so many competitive models out there. These include the Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima and the Chevrolet Malibu. Also, let’s not forget the new Toyota Camry that was released last year. Honda has never shied away from a challenge, however. They keep their strategy simple and focus on giving buyers more of what they want while making the package look attractive. For 2013, Honda has pushed the Accord a little above the mainstream – thanks to its outstanding design and sharp styling. The idea is to poach sales from the higher end brands while flattering their loyal customers.
Honda claims that this car is more luxurious, more sophisticated, better performing and better
equipped than any other model in the Accord’s 37year history. The goal for 2013 was apparently to advance the sense of luxury and craftsmanship to the highest levels in their class. Well, that’s a tall promise, but we are happy to report that – for the most part – Honda has achieved its goals and objectives. The new Accord certainly looks leaner and more athletic. This is partly because for the first time ever, the 2013 model is actually smaller than its predecessor, with an overall length 3.6 inches shorter than before. While the exterior is not flashy by any standard, the new look is more dynamic and passionate. This is especially noticeable up front, where a larger grill and lower air inlets give it a brawny edge. However, down the sides, familiar body lines cut across the shoulders and sills. With the sedan’s smaller exterior, total passenger volume is just slightly less, but Honda has made the cabin more inviting with its higher class ideals. Head and hip room has decreased a little, but shoulder room is up and leg room remains the same in the front. In the back seat, leg room has been increased by over an inch, and that’s with a larger trunk that now holds 15.8 cu.ft of luggage. The overall feel is roomy and spacious.

Accord: New features bring an increase to price but still a great deal continued from page 17
spot display option which expands the rear view along the passenger side, improving safety. I was surprised how effective this safety feature was during my drive, and quickly learned to appreciate the extra measure of vision it provided throughout my daily commute. As before, the 2013 Accord is a good long distance companion – it’s generally quiet and at highway speeds the ride is silky smooth. The car feels like it costs twice its price. That said, in the city it can feel a bit jittery on rough surfaces as the steering can feel a bit numb and artificial. The exception is the coupe, which offers higher road feel and amazing level of handling.
So then, what is it like to drive the new Accord day-to-day? The best way to sum it up is that the Accord offers a totally relaxing environment. This is because the engines work effortlessly, the gear boxes are amongst the smoothest in the business, the seats are highly comfortable, the driving position is spot on, and allaround visibility is perfect. Unlike some other cars in this range, the dash is made of high quality, soft-touch materials. Everything within the cabin has that beautiful Honda feeling of solidity. And it has decent practicality too, thanks to a large central storage space, which is chilled by the air conditioning and also includes the USB input for your MP3 player. As for safety, you can get the Accord with a lane departure warning system,
forward collision warning system, and cruise control that will apply the brakes in an emergency. These are features that are typically only offered on high-end luxury vehicles. The 2013 Accord also showcases the new HondaLink system. This enables owners to keep in touch with their car and others by using an ever expanding suite of smart phone apps. Located high in the centre of the vastly improved dash is a large eight-inch interactive display. Navigation equipped models add a separate touch screen for the audio controls to reduce button clutter. Dual automatic climate controls and rearview camera are now standard on all Accord models.
While Honda moved the Accord a little upmarket, competition has allowed only a slight increase in base price. The sedan starts at $23,990 and the coupe at $26,290. The added dollars bring standard features like a power adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, rearview camera, 8inch LED backlit display, Bluetooth, USB audio interface with text message and e-mail capability, vehicle stability assist with traction control, ABS with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist.

way for 6.7L/100km combined. Models with the 3.5litre V6 (only available with a six-speed automatic transmission) should experience fuel economy numbers of 9.7L/100km city, 5.7L/100km highway, and 7.9L/100km combined.
The Honda Accord remains a great all-around family car. The new version feels upscale and drives like a car that costs twice as much.

BUYING A HOME - IS COMPROMISE A NECESSITY?
ften you will ﬁnd yourself having to compromise one thing or another when it comes to ﬁnding a new home. You have to sacriﬁce convenience for living space, or living space for tranquility. But sometimes a rare opportunity arises to own a home that bring your priorities together. CONVENIENCE Eden is suited between Edmonds SkyTrain and shops at HighGate Village, and undoubtedly answers your desire for convenient living. You’ll ﬁnd your new library and community centre just blocks way and many restaurants close by. Eden is also surrounded by recreational parks as well as some of the district’s top schools. The best of Burnaby’s shopping is also just minutes away, at Metropolis at Metrotown. Here you can catch a movie or visit one of the many brand name stores on oﬀer. TRANQUIL LIVING Convenience itself is nothing unusual, but
the rarity of Eden is its tranquil location. Although within perfect reach of fantastic facilities, Eden is tucked way from the bustle of Kingsway, on peaceful residential Stride Avenue. Set without thoughtful landscaping, a home at Eden is truly a haven. STYLISH INTERIORS As well as providing a peaceful sanctuary, paradise at Eden is achieved though its stylish decor and airy modern layouts. Expansive windows and 9 ft. ceilings on the main ﬂoor maximize natural light, while generous patios or balconies in every home provide additional space for entertaining or relaxing. Elegant touches and modern ﬁnishes include stone countertops, European-style cabinets and top-grade stainless steel appliances. DON’T BE TOO QUICK TO COMPROMISE Living at Eden, you can reach all your favourite places and still come home to urban paradise living. When convenience, tranquility and style converge, it really isn’t
necessary to compromise. The key is making sure you know your options when choosing a new home. Don’t sacriﬁce your ideals before you’ve seen the proof. Visit the Eden showhome at 7168 Stride Avenue, Burnaby. Open house: Mon-Thurs 3-5pm, Sat/Sun 11am-1pm; or by appointment.

Banner Rebels BNW No. 1 Young rink wins way to first Brier Tom Berridge
The Burnaby South Rebels wanted a shot at crosstown rival New Westminster, but a first BurWest title banner will do. Burnaby South raced out to a 13-2 start and then settled for a 66-47 victory over the steadily improving young Burnaby Mountain Lions in the girls’ basketball banner final at South on Wednesday. Manpreet Nijjar led the way with a game-high 23 points, while Grade 9 phenom Jacey Bailey topped the Lions with 20 points. “We wanted New West. Every year we lost to them and we wanted just one moment, but holdiing that banner is just as good,” said Nijjar, who was named a league all-star and was the recipient of numerous setups from fellow all-star Pavneet Brar. Brar netted 12 points for the Rebels, while fellow senior Stephanie Labbé chipped in with 17 points, including a pair of threepointers. The win gave South a bye to the second round of the Crehan Cup Lower Mainland girls’ tournament. The Rebels will open up the provincial qualifying tournament against the winner of Point Grey and Burnaby Mountain at Kitsilano on Monday. Game time is 8:15 p.m. The No.9-ranked Rebels will host the final rounds of the Crehan Cup from Feb. 21 to 23. The top-four-finishing school teams will earn berths into the B.C. AAA girls’ basketball champioinships. A fifth team will become a wild-card possibility.

In the final: Burnaby Mountain’s Daniella Pettenon looks to pass against the tight defence from Burnaby South’s Desiree Lister in BurWest girls’ hoop final. South will be up against No. 3 Handsworth, No. 5 Argyle and honourable mention Steveston-Lonon at the Mainland championships. In the consolation final, New Westminster broke open a close game in the fourth quarter to defeat Byrne Creek 61-49 at South. New West was upset 70-50 by Mountain in the semifinals held on Tuesday. “It was definitely a bit different this year,” said Hyacks captain Amanda Zacharuk, who led the Hyacks with 18 points.
Playing without their high-scoring senior guard, Meriam Ali, New West outscored the Bulldogs 209 in the final quarter. “We perservered,” said Zacharuk, who punctuated the win with a big three in the final minuteand-a-half. “It does show we’re capable of pulling through and putting up a good fight.” Byrne Creek put up a good fight, too, keeping the game within a bucket or two for the first three quarters before running out of gas in the final 10 minutes. Dina Deng led all scor-
ers with 21 points. In BurWest boys’ semifinal play, third-place finishing Burnaby Mountain upset Burnaby South 71-66 to move on to the banner final against regular season champion and No. 10ranked Byrne Creek. The Bulldogs defeated New Westminster 94-69 in the other semifinal. The boys’ finals take place at Byrne Creek today (Friday), beginning at 3:30 p.m. with South taking on New West. Byrne Creek and Mountain follow in the banner final with the BNW No. 1 berth at stake.

Meryl Davis and Charlie White of the United States edged Canadian champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada for first place at the ISU event. In the men’s event, B.C.

Japan and Han Yan of China in the free skate. Reynold’s 250.55 final score was also a personal best. Reynolds will be joined by national champion Patrick Chan at the ISU world championships in London from March 11 to 17.

champions have not had a lot of success. In fact, B.C. teams have won on just four separate occasions since the Second World War cancelled the Canadian men’s championships. The last team from the West Coast to win a Brier was Greg McAuley, Pierce, Bryan Miki and Jody Sveistrup in 2000. Bilesky and first-time Saskatchewan skip Brock Virtue will be up against a host of former championships at next month’s Brier, including defending Canadian
champion Glenn Howard of Ontario. Jeff Stoughton of Manitoba – the 2011 Brier champ – and 2006 Olympic gold-medal champion Brad Gushue of Newfoundland and Labrador will be joined by three-time Brier titlist Kevin Martin of Alberta when the competition gets underway on March 2 at Rexall Place in Edmonton. “We’re going to take it one shot at a time and see what we can do,” said Bilesky. – firstname.lastname@example.org

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your revels now are ended, Aries. Let go of social notions and prepare for some “sweet solitude” – a good rest, valuable contemplation and plans ﬁll the weeks ahead. (Especially, good plans for career or dealing with authorities, which have been difﬁcult these few years.) Sunday afternoon offers muddled directions: relax. Do errands, paperwork Monday, but avoid temper, “roughness.” Tuesday morn brings easy success, and a sweet friend. Head for home midweek, as your quietude deepens. Romantic notions and inventive ideas, creative expression, ﬂow Friday eve and Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Pressures ease. Higherups have favoured you all month, but now they ease up on the “performance” pedal. The weeks ahead feature friends, social joys, entertainment and optimism. You’ll be happy! A former friend, ﬂirty person, light romance, or social circle could return. A former wish or goal could beckon again, too. But soon, huge new friendships loom also. Careful Sunday: appearances are deceptive. Chase money anyway, realistically, this eve through Tuesday morning. Errands, casual friends, communications and paperwork ﬁll Wednesday/ Thursday. Home, relax, Friday eve, Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: A peaceful month ends Monday; a month of ambition, tests, status concerns and prestige relations begins. Start NO new projects or relationships before March 17. Meantime, this week will slow like a car; then next week into mid-March will bring former ambitions, career contacts, bosses and roles/duties to the fore. Some of these could be lucky – but anything new will not be. Act accordingly. Despite this temporary retracing, your career is entering a huge new zone for the decade ahead. You will ﬁnally “reach” your true calling. Your energy and effectiveness soar Sunday-Tuesday.
Cancer June 21-July 22: Mysteries end; four weeks of understanding begin. Avoid starting new projects or relationships now to March 17. The month ahead holds far travel, legal affairs, higher education, publishing, love and cultural affairs. These are great if they come from the past (e.g., an old ﬂame, or a trip across the ocean to revisit your old neighbourhood). But new ventures in these areas are likely to fail in the long run. (For instance, this would be a disastrous time to begin a lawsuit; it would “never end.”) Rest, lie low early week. Your energy and charm surge Wednesday on. Write someone. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks past brought open, honest relationships and opportunities. Monday begins a month that steers these “open” contacts into deeper, “hidden” zones. E.g., an attraction might become intimate; a business opportunity now demands commitment and funding. However, until March 17, DON’T start new ventures or relationships, especially in ﬁnances and lust. Instead, work with ongoing situations, or reprise opportunities from the past. (DON’T try to rewrite a text, score or ﬁlm script.) Happiness visits (sort of) Sunday to Tuesday. Lie low midweek. You shine, Friday afternoon, Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A major slowdown looms, February 23 to March 17, but we can feel the drag even earlier. So avoid starting new projects or relationships all week. A former link is almost certain to appear – could be an ex, former lover, friend, business associate, etc. Either this person represents a viable path forward for you, or there is unﬁnished business between you that should be wrapped up/resolved. The entire month ahead features relationships above all else – and opportunities, “renewed” horizons, relocation potentials. In these, reject the brand new. Happiness, Wednesday/Thursday!

February 17 - 23, 2013
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new now to March 17, Libra. You’ll be busy enough with ongoing chores – and a possible big one returning from the past. (E.g., those porch stairs ﬁnally caved in; or I forgot that tax return.) The only new thing worth starting this week is a long-range intellectual application, Tuesday morning before 10:45 PST. (E.g., submitting a school or passport application, or buying travel tickets – all for events to occur after March 17. DO NOT begin a lawsuit, essay, novel, etc.) Sunday to Tuesday are mellow, loving. Be ambitious midweek. Friday eve, Saturday: social joy. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start nothing new before March 17, Scorpio – with the exception of a great investment, research project or intimate lure Tuesday morning. (Watch the “start nothing” period this day.) If someone new attracts you Tuesday morning, it can be loving and intimate very quickly. In addition, next week onward, an old ﬂame might return – he/ she offers emotional buoyancy and sexual depth, but make sure the “original problem” doesn’t still exist. Careful Sunday, appearances deceive. Wednesday/Thursday are mellow, understanding: love approaches. Be ambitious Friday eve, Saturday afternoon. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The month ahead accents home, children, security, nutrition, real estate, and retirement. Though a slow-down and “backwardation” occurs in many small areas now to March 17, advising against new starts, the major themes of your life actually leap forward during the weeks ahead. An end is a beginning. Trust the feeling that your life is opening to big new horizons – it is, and the more you seek the company of others, the bigger those horizons. A former domestic or career role might return – that’s ﬁne. Express love Tuesday morning. Good sex, ﬁnances and research Thursday.
Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The weeks ahead bring many details, errands, light chores, communications, paperwork, travel and casual contacts. Be alert in these: double-check instructions, reports and words/ grammar. Avoid big new starts until March 17 onward. You’ll be busy, but the stakes are not big, so ﬁnd that “relaxed busy” level. A former friend or acquaintance might return. Tackle chores Sunday to Tuesday – a Tuesday morning task can boost your career. (Start well before 10:30 a.m. PST.) Agreement and opposition occur midweek: true love’s possible. Sex, ﬁnances, secrets Friday eve, Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead feature money, but don’t start new money ventures – or any new projects – before March 17. Stick with the ongoing, or situations that return from the past. You’ll collect old debts and/or face paying bills you’d forgotten about. A former sensual link could return (next week onward). So could former clients and income sources. Buy NOTHING new before midMarch (except of course gas, groceries, etc.) – lemons abound. Romance is deceptive Sunday eve, irksome Monday, and sweet Tuesday morning. Tackle chores mid-week. Evaporating opportunities Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, charm, and clout rise strongly over the few weeks ahead. I didn’t include “effective,” as partners, co-operators, opportunities and plans will tend to go backwards, perhaps due to indecision. So DON’T start new projects or relationships before March 17 – stick with the ongoing, or reprise past situations. A former mate, and/or a former neighbourhood, could draw you. Take a pleasant walk down memory lane. Be domestic Sunday to Tuesday. Mid-week brings romance, creative urges, pleasure and a winning streak: you fascinate someone. Tackle jobs Friday eve, Saturday. email@example.com • Reading: 604-886-4808
