A new landscape In late February, the Metrotown Save-On-Foods at Station Square was demolished after closing in December. Overwaitea Food Group, Save-On’s parent company, decided to close due to sales declining and uncompetitive operating costs last fall. Anthem Properties and Beedie Living are developing plans for the next three phases of the redevelopment project for the Station Square complex. The plan includes five residential towers ranging in height from 35 to 57 storeys. The mixed-used development will also see restaurants, retail and the towers linked to the rest of the city via transit and Burnaby’s trail system. Jennifer Gauthier/burnaby now

21 city companies fined for safety violations Marelle Reid staff reporter

WorkSafe B.C. imposed almost $300,000 in fines against Burnaby construction companies in 2012. In total, 21 local employers were among the 225 in British Columbia fined for workrelated safety issues, according to the agency’s 2012 enforcement report. The highest penalty levied in Burnaby was against Lexspan Limited Partnership, for $58,820. The company was fined because one of

the company’s workers died after being injured on the job. “This firm’s worker suffered fatal crushing injuries when a large component of the lowbed trailer he was working on suddenly dropped after being repositioned by another worker who was operating the trailer’s hydraulic controls,” the report states. “The firm failed to conduct adequate health and safety planning for this job, which involved both its own workers and another firm’s workers, as well as unfamiliar equipment and work practices.”

The report also states the company failed to adequately inform and instruct its workers in how to safely operate the trailer. “Penalties are imposed to motivate employers to comply with health and safety laws,” said Al Johnson, vice-president of prevention services for WorkSafe B.C., in a press release. “While WorkSafe B.C. works with employers to ensure they understand their legal responsibilities to provide safe and healthy workplaces, our officers will impose a penalty or pursue court processes against employers who

repeatedly fail to comply with the law,” he said. WorkSafe B.C. also levied a fine of $33,794 against Wallmark Homes for infractions in Burnaby. The enforcement report said Wallmark failed to ensure the worksite excavation area was safely supported, as required. A worker’s pelvis was broken when an unstable soil bank and concrete retaining wall collapsed, landing on his back. Further, the firm failed to ensure that a professional engineer had approved the excavation area as safe for Fines Page 4

Chevron replaces ‘thinning’ piece of pipeline Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Chevron workers are removing and replacing a section of thinning pipeline in the 7500 block of Birkdale Place near Burnaby Mountain. The crude supply line runs oil from Kinder Morgan’s tank farm to Burnaby’s Chevron refinery. “It’s thinning to the point where we’d like to replace it. This is done by cutting a section of the line out and replacing a five-foot section of it. It’s about 12 inches in diameter. The line will be emptied and flushed prior to it being replaced,” said company spokesperson Ray Lord. The line is owned, operated, inspected and maintained by Chevron, he added. According to Lord, the line has been in service since the 1950s and is inspected regularly. The company used a “smart pig,” a high-tech tool that inspects the walls of the pipe for corrosion and thickness, Lord For more photos explained, and this scan particular area had to with be replaced. “It’s still safe but it requires replacement,” Lord said. Workers have removed the asphalt and are excavating by hand. “It’s basically a hole in the ground. It looks like a city crew doing work on water,” he said. Lord expects the work to be completed by March 15, and there is equipment on site to minimize any nuisance odors. Besides Chevron’s crude line, there is also a Kinder Morgan pipeline and a jet fuel line on Birkdale Place. “We haven’t done this for some time. We haven’t replaced a section of the pipe

Chevron hand-delivered a notice to Birkdale Place residents, but Kalpna Solanki, who lives in a block away from the worksite, did not know what was happening and suspected the line had sprung a leak when she noticed the work on Tuesday.

“I see the work going on, and I drive through there, and I’m just a few doors away, and I had no clue what’s going on. Neither does my neighbour,” she said. “Because there have been leaks in the past, and this whole thing with regards to pipelines is so much in the media right now,

they should be a bit more aware of public perception.” Solanki said she would like to see Chevron do a better job of letting the neighbours know what’s going on. “We knew the pipeline was there,” she said. “But let’s just be good neighbours.”


46-storey highrise goes to public hearing Stefania Seccia staff reporter

A proposed 46-storey highrise apartment building on Gilmore Avenue is up for discussion at a public hearing this month. On March 19, the public will be able to look at plans for the site, which include the proposed tower with a three-storey townhouse podium facing Halifax Street and a two-storey residential amenity podium on Gilmore Avenue that includes a rooftop swimming pool, which will require rezoning. The tower is expected to have about 340 apart-

ment units. “The proposed development concept provides a strong streetoriented relationship to its two bounding street frontages, as well as a strong contextual relationship to surrounding existing and planned development,” states Lou Pelletier, Burnaby’s director of planning and building, in his report to council. “Overall, the subject proposal is considered to exemplify exceptional urban design and architectural expression related to the building’s siting, massing, pedestrian orientation and materiality; meeting the standard expected.”






Here & Now









The site is made up of three lots on Gilmore, which are currently zoned under the manufacturing and industrial district zoning. A deli and sausage manufacturer, a vacant car lot and an auto body repair shop currently occupy the lots. If approved, the site will be designated for a highdensity, multiple family development part of the Brentwood Town Centre Development Plan. “The site is also considered suitable for the proposed development given its strategic location in relation to the Millenium SkyTrain line and the nearby Gilmore SkyTrain line,” the

report states. The proposal calls for a progressive landscape treatment for the bounding streets, including separated bicycle and pedestrian facilities on Gilmore Avenue and separated sidewalks along Halifax Street. “The landscape design also provides for on-site pedestrian lighting and a lit public pedestrian pathway along the south property line to be protected by statutory right-of-way, providing access to Gilmore Avenue for the residents of the Marquis Grand at 4132 Halifax St.” If approved, under the denLast week’s question Do you think Tasers should be certified?

passes for two years, twice the required secured bicycle parking and 34 electric vehicle plug-in stations, which will include all necessary wiring, electrical transformer and mechanical ventilation modifications and four electric vehicles for the future strata corporation. Coun. Colleen Jordan said obtaining these extra elements comes from the staff’s hard work cooperating with the developer. “They try to think outside the box and incorporate these novel ideas,” she said. Jordan said bonuses such as electric car plug-ins and transit passes makes a difference to buyers. The developer intends to pursue green building practices by achieving a Silver (equivalency) rating under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. The public hearing will also see the plans for three other projects, including two projects that will sit next to each other on Lane Street. The first phase of the site will have 185 units built over three lots at 5401 and 5437 Lane St. and 5390 Grimmer St. The second phase will be built on the adjacent property, 5309 Lane St. It will see an 80-apartment unit, four-storey mixeduse development. Another site seeking rezoning is a stacked townhouse development on Kingsway Avenue, which will be three-storeys in height, with 20 three-bedroom townhouse units and underground parking. The public hearing is on Tuesday, March 19 at 7 p.m. in city hall chambers.


City to give group $95,157 to buy space for accessible rental suites Stefania Seccia staff reporter

The Vancouver Resource Society will receive a $95,157 grant from the City of Burnaby to purchase a whole floor for accessible rental housing. The accessible rental housing site at 4555 Hastings St. was approved for a grant after the society wrote to council in January for support. The site is up for redevelopment and rezoning with a four-storey mixed-use building, located on the north side of Hastings Street, east of Willingdon Avenue. It is currently occupied by the Dolphin Theatre and owned by the rezoning applicant, Heights Entertainment. “Established 40 years ago, Vancouver Resource Society is a charitable and notfor-profit society with a mandate to provide housing and programs for persons with physical and developmental disabilities,” said Ken Fraser, the society’s executive director, in his letter to the city’s planning department. “(The society) currently

owns approximately 260 apartment units, and 30 properties in Metro Vancouver and Victoria and provides independent living opportunities, care and programs to hundreds of persons with disabilities.” The society operates two group homes in Burnaby as well. With council’s approval of the grant on Monday night, the society will next move forward and purchase the 11 units, which is the entire second floor, from Heights Entertainment for $395 per sq. ft. The units will be rented out to seniors or those with a disability, according to the report. “Once (the society) has purchased the units, we will then be able to move forward with a proposal to the Simon Fraser Health Authority and request funding for care in the eleven units in this project,” Fraser states. The grant will come out of the city’s Community Benefit Bonus Housing Fund. The monthly rent projected by the report could be $1,038 to $1,100 for a 600

sq. ft. one-bedroom unit. “It is further noted that this project is unique in that it is the first housing funds request relating to units in a market project,” the report states. “It is also the first project (in Burnaby) that is not receiving any federal or provincial housing funding to assist with development costs.” The society is also proposing to use $300,000 of its own funds towards the purchase costs of the units. “The total purchase value of 11 units and the support staff room and storage areas are reported to be $3,466,520, based on the net floor area of 8,776 sq. ft. at $395 per sq. ft,” the report states. The units are expected to provide security of tenure for the residents as well. The society’s total request from the city was for $205,157, with the additional request of $10,000 for each unit ($110,000) to offset the cost of the units. However, it was not in the society’s first letter of intent for funding. If it requires the extra funding in the future, the request will be put forward for council’s approval.

workers to enter, the report states. Other Burnaby companies received fines in 2012

that ranged from $1,000 to $30,000, for violations related to failure to provide adequate safety measures to prevent falls, protect against asbestos exposure, knowingly provid-

ing false information or withholding information from WorkSafe B.C., and failing to ensure workers were given full instruction on safety requirements at the worksite.

Penalty amounts vary due to the size of employers penalized and the seriousness of the violations. Penalties imposed may be appealed.

Herons choose safe city neighbourhood Cayley Dobie staff reporter

Everyone is looking for a safer neighbourhood in which to raise their children – including herons. More than a dozen herons visited a local subdivision along Spruce Street Monday and again on Tuesday. Fouad Shalaby’s parents live in the area and called him when they noticed the birds perched in one of the trees on Atlee Avenue. When he arrived, Shalaby and his parents sat outside watching the large birds squawk and scrap with one another. “We were the only ones watching them though; no one else seemed to care,” he said. And that seemed to be the case on Wednesday, too. The birds had moved to another tree, this time on Mahon Avenue, but no one seemed to notice. A couple of joggers ran by without even glancing up and a mailman walked by, only to comment that he



barely noticed the birds. This neglect is a good thing, said Yolanda Brooks, communications coordinator for the Wildlife Rescue Association in Burnaby. “People should keep their distance and leave them alone,” she said. According to the association, the subspecies of heron that live in the Lower Mainland nest in colonies to better protect their chicks. What’s more, it’s not unusual to see them move away from wetlands to woodland areas to nest. “The chicks will be protected from things like the raccoons that will eat them,” Brooks said. “As long as they’re three to five kilometres from their feeding ground, they’re able to feed themselves and feed their chicks.” With Deer Lake in that range, it seems these herons have found a safe home to raise their young. While Shalaby hadn’t seen any herons in the area before, it’s likely his new friends will be there until April, when the heron nesting season typically ends.

Young families need new policies IN MY OPINION Paul Kershaw


lthough Canadians may disagree about a lot of things, most share a common aspiration to look after aging family members and give a good start to younger ones. That’s why growing numbers from all walks of life have been inspired to join the Generation Squeeze campaign. They are chatting, texting, facebooking, tweeting, emailing, gathering, partying and petitioning in common cause to give all generations a chance. They do so out of concern that governments pit the health of grandparents against the well-being of their kids and grandchildren when governments budget around $45,000 annually per retiree, compared to just $12,000 per person under the age of 45. The Generation Squeeze campaign’s goal is simple – to shine a light on the spending imbalance between younger Canadians and retirees so it becomes part of the campaign conversation in advance of the B.C. election on May 14. We pursue this goal because spending on younger generations

– whether for family, housing, education, environmental conservation, etc. – will be in short supply until political parties acknowledge the large spending gap between generations. Although the spending gap is large, the problem isn’t spending on seniors. Twenty-nine per cent of Canadian seniors were poor in 1976. But because we now allocate $45,000 per retiree, primarily to their medical care and retirement income security, we’ve reduced poverty among seniors to around five per cent – lower than any other age group today. This policy success for seniors is personal to me. My grandmother is 97 and in hospital as I write this column. She would have been poor almost my entire life had Canadians not invested in medical care and public pensions for her and millions of others. But my grandmother doesn’t want investment in retirees to come at the expense of adapting policy to meet new challenges facing the generations who walk in her footsteps. Young people’s wages are down around 18 per cent, despite devoting more time to post-secondary than any previous generation. With lower wages, they must pay housing prices that are 150 per cent higher. This means the typical young person must work 15 years to

past several years. Despite the fact EI is an insurance program that workers pay into, the federal government has in recent years made it more difficult to qualify for benefits and cut the length of time benefits are received. None of which has done anything to help those who find themselves out of work through no fault of their own. Contrast this with the kid glove treatment recently afforded to

Conservative senators who have apparently been claiming false residences in order to collect a special housing allowance at taxpayers’ expense. Recently, Senator Mike Duffy said he’d repay tens of thousands of dollars in housing allowance after falsely claiming a cottage in Prince Edward Island was his principal residence. Seems a few folks in the Red Chamber could benefit from a government-sponsored house call.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Aging pipeline is worrisome Dear Editor:

I would like to express my concerns with the existing Kinder Morgan oil pipeline. Every pipeline has a service life. In other words, they do not operate safely forever. The existing line was installed approximately 60 years ago. Materials and installation specifications were very different compared to today’s standards. The coating on this line is probably coal tar enamel and is susceptible to disbonding over time. This exposes the steel which is exposed to moisture, chlorides, etc., and corrosion is inevitable. By the way, coal tar enamel contains asbes-

tos. Steel pipe in the ground will corrode despite cathodic protection. C.S.A. and Oil and Gas Commission standards require regular testing to determine the integrity of buried pipelines. External corrosion can be identified by close interval surveys, current mapping and most importantly, external corrosion direct assessment, which is recommended by the National Association of Corrosion Engineers. Oil pipelines are susceptible to internal corrosion. Regulations require assessment of the integrity of the inside of the pipe which requires the insertion of a device called a “pig” that detects internal corrosion, dents, metal thickness and other anomalies. New pipelines have devices called line breaks,

which shut down a line if there is a drop in pressure, not the case with the Inlet Drive leak. Do you think that Kinder Morgan has done their due diligence in testing? Because enforcement of regulations in Canada is almost nonexistent. In defence of the commission, they are badly understaffed. In short, the existing pipeline should be abandoned. Again, every pipeline has a service life. How long does Kinder Morgan expect this line to operate safely? Rust never sleeps. Steve Hill, Burnaby

Gov’t should reach out

Dear Editor:

Re: Ethnic votes scandal has ties to city politicos, Burnaby NOW, March 6. I can’t understand the fuss being made over a plan to reach out to the province’s ethnic populations. There is nothing new in any of this: Political parties engage in all sorts of outreach activities all the time. The NDP, for instance, established sex-

ual orientation quotas in their constitution for NDP candidates. So, if you ask me, it’s about time the government and political parties made a greater effort to reach out to B.C.’s ethnic populations. Donald Leung, Burnaby

Stop harping on Trudeau

Dear Editor:

I am getting tired of hearing that Justin Trudeau has no experience. I think he has plenty. Also how much experience is required to lead a federal party? What did Stephen Harper do before he became leader of the Conservative Party and how much experience did he bring to the job? Justin Trudeau is a thoroughly decent, honest and sincere human being with lots of ideas on how to change Canada for the better. I say give him a chance to show us what he can do. I look forward to the day he becomes prime minister and returns Canada to its traditional progressive social policy. Garth Evans, Burnaby

Changes: Could save cash continued from page 6

save a 20 per cent down payment on an average home today. A generation ago, it took only five years. So you can see why younger generations feel squeezed between time and money pressures. For many, this time and money squeeze happens around the same time they’d like to start their own families. The problem is, they can’t work their way out of the squeeze without compromising time at home when their kids are young. But if they take this time, many compromise the financial foundation they’ve patched together by devoting more time to the labour market. Fortunately, there are solutions. The Generation Squeeze campaign pinpoints three policies to reduce the squeeze for those who someday want, or already have, young children: First, make it affordable for parents to spend 18 months at home with a newborn. Many today don’t even have 12 months, whereas a genera-

tion ago it was common for a parent to stay home several years. Second, build $10-perday child care. Today, the cost is often more than university tuition, whereas the majority of families didn’t incur these costs a generation ago when it was more affordable for a parent to stay home until kids started school and there was less concern about gender inequality. These two policies would save the typical family about $50,000 during their children’s first five years and support a third change, making 70hour work weeks – down from 80 – affordable. Lone parents could do better than they do now. A generation ago, it was common to get by with one parent working 40 hours. By saving about $50,000, young families could pay off an average student debt and reduce the time it takes to save a 20-per-cent down payment on a home in an average school district by four years. Or they could pay

down the mortgage faster, or invest it as savings that would be worth $141,000 by the time Gen Squeeze retires. These three policy changes are a pragmatic solution to the lower wages, student debt and higher housing prices with which younger generations now struggle. Their cost only requires narrowing the generational spending gap slightly. We’d need to raise government spending per Canadian under age 45 from $12,000 to around $13,000, while keeping spending around $45,000 per retiree. This small change can make a big difference for Generation Squeeze, while safeguarding medical care and old age security for our aging loved ones. It’s a vision inspiring many to amplify their voice in support of a better generational deal.

What should city do with 48-acre site? staff reporter

The former Safeway site in the Edmonds neighbourhood up for redevelopment will be sent to an open house this spring so concerned Burnaby residents can be part of the preliminary concepts and vision. At Monday night’s meeting, council approved the public consultation process for the future redevelopment of the Safeway Distribution Complex and Dairy Plant sites, which comprise the Southgate Neighbourhood Concept. Developer Ledingham McAllister acquired the 48-acre site on Dec. 15, 2011. While the dairy plant continues to operate within the site under a lease agreement, the food distribution complex has relocated off-site, according to a city planning and building report. The Southgate site is comprised of four properties: 7650 and 7702 18th St., and 7105 and 7205 11th Ave., which is located in the southeast area of the Edmonds Town Centre. “The site’s recent acquisition presents an opportunity for the city to redefine the site’s land use framework and role to achieve community plan objectives contained within the city’s official community plan and the Edmonds Town Centre Plan, more specifically,” states Lou Pelletier, director of planning and building, in his report to council.

Since 1960, Canada Safeway Ltd. operated the food distribution warehouse for Western Canada. In 1989, the site was expanded to include the current Lucerne Foods Inc. dairy plant. In February 2011, Safeway relocated the food distribution operations to Langley and made the site available for purchase, according to the staff report. Last spring, city staff and the new property owner started to work together to draw up an idea of what the site could become under the framework of the official community plan. The site currently has five industrialwarehouse buildings supported by several smaller facilities and is surrounded by residential neighbourhoods made up of single- and two-family dwellings, as well as a nearby multiple-family, non-market housing development. “Given the significant size of the site and strategic location within the Edmonds Town Centre, redevelopment of the site presents a unique opportunity to create a truly special place/neighbourhood, one that is inclusive and diverse and fully integrated within the town centre,” Pelletier states. “More significantly still, development of the site requires a contemporary approach to planning, a process that is dynamic and responsive, creative, and inclusive in its engagement of the community Site Page 9

Private schools top rankings Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The Fraser Institute released its annual ranking of B.C. elementary schools, and Burnaby’s top six are all private schools. Our Lady of Mercy ranked 13th in the province and first in Burnaby. Holy Cross, John Knox Christian school, St. Michaels, St. Francis de Sales and St. Helen’s – all independent schools – took the subsequent top spots, in that order. At seventh place, Buckingham Elementary was the top rated public school in Burnaby, ranking 104th out of the 853 B.C. schools included. The Fraser Institute’s annual school rankings are based on results from the Foundation Skills Assessment tests, a set of provincewide exams for grades 4 and 7 students in reading, writing and math. The right-wing think-tank uses the results to rank both elementary and secondary schools. This year’s Burnaby results are similar to previous years, with private schools taking the tops spots, and the public schools trailing behind. “They have consistent methodology, I’ll give them that,” said James Sanyshyn, president of the Burnaby Teachers’ Association. Sanyshyn argued the Fraser Institute’s methodology was skewed, favouring private schools, which can pick and choose

who does the FSAs. Public schools are “inclusive,” Sanyshyn said, and everyone – including some of the ESL students and special needs students – do the FSA tests. But Neva Grout, principal at Our Lady of Mercy, said her school has ESL and special needs students, and they do the FSA tests, too. “We make every single child write the test,” she said. “Everybody here writes the test.” However, Our Lady of Mercy and all of Burnaby’s top ranking private schools were listed as having no ESL students and no special needs kids on the Fraser Institute’s website. Grout explained that the students go through “intensive instruction” in kindergarten and grades 1 through 3, and by the time they hit Grade 4, the school doesn’t report the number of ESL and special needs students to the Education Ministry. “It’s the administrator’s responsibility to tell the government how many ESL and special needs students (there are). I just don’t bother to report it,” Grout said. Peter Cowley, author of the rankings report, explained that while details, such as parents’ income and the number of ESL and special needs students, are included in the schools’ informational profiles, that data does not affect the rankings. Only results from the FSAs affect the rankings.

Site: Community input sought continued from page 8

and public for input.” James KM Cheng Architecture Inc. was chosen by the property owner to develop key components to guide the visioning and eventual transformation of the site into a new community of neighbourhoods. “The preliminary vision for the site is a pedestrian-oriented, transit connected community that reflects the natural beauty of Burnaby,” Pelletier states. “At its heart is a memorable gathering place comprised of various unique spaces that are accessible to people of all ages and abilities.” The Southgate area is expected to integrate with the nearby neighbourhoods and complement them with diverse housing types with a “broad range” of affordability,

according to the report. One of the community benefits identified is to “improve connectivity to and from the site and surrounding neighbourhood by improving urban trail connections, providing more accessible and convenient connections to transit and designing safe and direct linkages to the Edmonds SkyTrain Station,” the report states. As part of the public notification process, city staff is expected to send out a brochure summarizing the report to Burnaby property owners and residents within the Edmonds Street, Kingsway, Griffiths Drive and Tenth Avenue areas. The city’s website,, will eventually have a spot for the public to post comments and ideas.

Sensible B.C. cannabis forum comes to Burnaby Cayley Dobie staff reporter

Sensible B.C.’s campaign to decriminalize marijuana is coming to Simon Fraser University on March 14 with a group of panelists, including Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan. The forum, which is the fifth of 15 scheduled events, is expected to be yet another lively discussion on the illegal substance, according to Philippe Lucas, a former Victoria city councillor and one of the members of the campaign’s advisory board. “It’s been a terrific show of support for cannabis reform here in B.C.,” said Lucas. In a previous interview with the NOW, Corrigan voiced his support for putting an end to pot prohibition in B.C. He, along with seven other mayors, sent an open letter to Premier Christy Clark and B.C. NDP leader, Adrian Dix, in April of 2012 calling for the regulation of marijuana. “I thought the fact that we had seen a coalition of ex-mayors, and ex-attorneys general and health professionals taking a stand on this issue really meant we had to take it to the next step, which is elected officials taking a position,” Corrigan said. Sensible B.C. hopes the forums will show politicians the public is behind them when it comes to marijuana reform and will support them on this issue. “Cannabis reform is going to gain (them) support, and it’s going to gain them votes,” he said. And with a provincial election looming on the horizon, votes are going to become

especially important to politicians looking to keep or gain a seat in the legislature. Much like speed limits, marijuana laws are certainly not the most popular in the province, Lucas said, and now that Colorado and Washington have legalized marijuana, there isn’t any reason why B.C. shouldn’t do the same. “For so long, we heard from the federal, and even some provincial and municipal, governments that we couldn’t even contemplate changing our cannabis laws because the U.S. would never tolerate it,” he said. “That discussion is out of the window, and the last thing we want to be is falling behind.” The discussion on the table at the Sensible B.C. forums is how current laws should be changed and what role the government will play in regulating and ultimately taxing marijuana. “It’s no longer a matter of whether or not we should change our cannabis policy but what that change is going to look like,” he said. So far, Lucas is pleased with how the forums have been running. From strong turnouts to engaging panelists, the response from the public has caused most forums to run longer than scheduled, he said. “We’re leaving about half the time at these panels to engage the audience in the discussion,” he said. “People have been very keen in the discussion.” Sensible B.C.’s forum at SFU is from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Shrum Science Centre on Thursday, March 14.

Fresh start: Jane Knowles walks the track at St. Thomas More Collegiate in Burnaby as part of her new, healthy lifestyle. Knowles quit smoking and rediscovered fitness after she suffered a heart attack three years ago.

Jane remembers her last cigarette – the one right before her heart attack Marelle Reid staff reporter

Jane Knowles remembers the last cigarette she ever smoked. It was on June 26, 2010 – the day she had a heart attack and found herself lying in a hospital bed with three stents in her chest. Her doctor told her the heart attack was a warning and that she needed to take better care of her health. At that time, she was 63, and she recalled her mother had died of a heart attack at age 64. “And that kind of scared me, too, because I thought, oh my God, I’m going to die when I’m 64,” she said. Her doctor prescribed medication to control her cholesterol and told her she would have to quit smoking. After a week in the hospital, Knowles realized that once she went home, she would have some decisions to make about her lifestyle habits. “The nurse … she got me out of bed and said, ‘You know, you can either sit in (bed) and worry, or you can get up and go for it,’ and I just came home and went,

in a press release. “In order to take full advantage of life and make health last, Canadians need to take action – it’s their time to decide if they’ll grow old with vitality, or get old with disease.” To help support Canadians to make healthy changes, the foundation is launching Make Health Last, a campaign that offers tips and tools to implement healthier lifestyle choices. According to the foundation, Canadians can shrink the 10-year gap between how long they live and how long they live in health by addressing five controllable behaviours that can affect heart disease and stroke risk: physical inactivity, smoking, stress, poor diet and excessive alcohol consumption. For Knowles, this has changed her whole life. “You know, I don’t feel old,” she said. “I’m getting the old-age pension, but I don’t feel old.” For more information on the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Make Health Last initiative, as well as a personalized risk assessment, visit www.MakeHealthLast. ca. for breaking news, photo galleries, blogs and more

Farmers’ market returns

Market set to run Saturdays from May 4 until Oct. 26 Stefania Seccia staff reporter

City hall’s parking lot will be abuzz with activity soon as Burnaby’s farmers’ market is set to return. Bakers, florists, farmers and crafters are expected to fill the stalls from May 4 to Oct. 26. Council approved the Artisan Farmers’ Market Society’s seasonal event at city hall’s north parking lot at Monday night’s meeting. “Market goers and market operators are happy to be back in our parking lot,” Coun. Colleen Jordan said. “It’s really becoming a community event.” Burnaby council began looking into the farmer’s market concept in 2007 as part of its environmental and creative initiatives to support local agriculture and farmers,

according to a city staff report. About 600 to 800 people attend the farmers’ market each day of operation. This year, a special event is planned for each month: June will be a fishing derby and will coincide with the City of Burnaby Environmental Festival; July is Teddy Bears Picnic; August will see great zucchini races; in September the “market is going to the dogs”; and October will have a Halloween-themed event. The society also intends to do a Children’s Hospital fundraiser, which raised more than $500 last year. The Burnaby-Deer Lake Rotary Club has also expressed interest in attending a market session to offer a confidential shredding service by donation. The market will begin May 4 and run every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. until Oct. 26. For more information, visit www.arti

To celebrate his double duties and the passing of the baton from former Alumni Band director, Earl Hobson, Wenzek will conduct a joint show with both the student and adult bands at the Michael J. Fox Theatre on March 14. About 60 senior students in the music program at Burnaby North have been rehearsing with the 45member adult choir from New Westminster for this special concert that will kick off the Alumni Band’s 25th season. The show will include a variety of types of music, including jazz, string orchestra, choral performance, and concert band. Wenzek said he is happy to be in this new role and

is keen to bring the youth from his classes and the adult musicians from the Alumni Band together. “Often when kids finish high school, they often say, ‘Well, what do I do next with my music?’ or, ‘I’m done’ and I look at it as, actually this is just the beginning,” he said of the Alumni Band. “...I wanted to get a chance to introduce the kids to the band, and the band to the kids.” The concert will also be a chance for the public to get to see the Alumni Band perform and may even inspire some people to pick up their long-forgotten instruments again, said Wenzek. “People are re-discovering this is a great way (to get back into music) and we also believe very much that it’s also a really healthy to do,” he said. Bill Walters, president of the Royal City Alumni Band Society, said the band originally formed as a postsecondary recreational option for former New Westminster Secondary School music students, but over the past quarter cen-

tury has grown to include adults from all over the Lower Mainland. “We play general concert repertoire, classical, pop, show tunes,” he said. “It’s a very wide variety. It’s a wind ensemble concert band, so no strings – it’s wind and percussion.” The Alumni Band has been performing at community events in New Westminster and around the Lower Mainland for 25 years and continues to welcome new members. Wenzek said until about 15 years ago, Burnaby North used to host concerts that showcased both school and community bands together. “That was a (good way) to introduce the kids to the community bands, and the community bands to the high schools and this is a good way to foster more students, when they finish high school, and later in life as well,” he said. “There really are opportunities to play and it’s about finding some artistic part of your life that’s missing.” The adult band members range in age from 18 to

Students collecting donations CLASS ACT

Jennifer Moreau


Burnaby continuing education teacher and her Grade 12 social justice students are collecting donations for Jeffrey Ross Residence and Crabtree Corner on March 9. “The main goal for this project is to actually get involved and be proactive,” said teacher Vicki Ng. “I think it’s going to be a huge learning experience for them as opposed to just hearing about it. … I hope they can empathize, not sympathize.” Jeffrey Ross Residence is third-stage housing complex for people with disabilities in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, and Crabtree Corner runs transitional housing for women who are overcoming substance abuse. The students are collecting blankets, clothing and nonperishable food for both organizations. People can drop items off at 4247 Lougheed Hwy., between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 9.

Get planting those fava beans GREEN SCENE Anne Marrison


ne of the most rugged, carefree and useful beans for our cool, wet coastal climate is the fava bean or broad bean – and planting season has just started for varieties destined for the kitchen. Aside from producing tasty beans, favas leave the soil richer than they found it by fixing nitrogen in nodules on their roots. They don’t mind slightly acidic soil, can also handle clay and even soil which is somewhat salty. These beans are popular all over the world and are said to still grow wild in their original habitat of Algeria. As early as 3000 BC they were apparently being eaten by Egyptians, Romans and Greeks.

But until Columbus discovered America and brought back other bean varieties, favas were the only beans that Europeans knew. Young fava beans are the most flavourful and can be eaten like green peas. They’re even more tasty with a sprig or two of mint added to the pot. The young beans freeze beautifully, too. Dried fava beans will store well for months. When they’re cooked, their soft centre is the base for many kinds of dips and spreads. In the garden, favas stand straight up on thick, square stems about four feet tall. But when the pods begin to fill out they start leaning at different angles. That’s why it’s best to place a tall stake at each end of each row and run string between them. The plants still lean slightly but their companions stop the bed from turning into shambles. Fava flowers are so heavily fragrant they scent the whole area.

Most are white with a black blotch, but one heritage fava, Cambridge Scarlet, has red flowers and bright green beans. It’s a dwarf variety and the beans are also quite small. Where different varieties of favas are grown together, they will crosspollinate. If Cambridge Scarlet is one, you can end up with a stunning mix of flowers from white to pale pink to hot pink to purple-red. The bean shapes, colours and heights of the plants are equally diverse. Even when soil is not especially fertile, these beans can still produce an adequate crop. As well, by the time other kinds of beans need frequent watering, favas have finished cropping and the bed can be cleared for second-season vegetables such as broccoli or Brussels sprouts. Although favas can apparently develop rust or fungal infections, this doesn’t seem to happen frequently. But attacks by the black bean aphid can be a yearly

occurrence dealt with by removing the tender top leaves. Unlike other aphids, the black aphids attach very firmly and few of them are dislodged by blasts of water from hoses. The first warning signal is when ants become visible on the tops of the fava plants. That’s when gardeners who want to do a preemptive strike will pinch out the top of each bean plant. The aphids don’t bother moving down to the tough lower leaves. If you mulch favas with grass clippings around the time that mowing begins. you can manage to avoid weeding from seedling emergence through to composting the mature plants. Mulching is best started down the rows and as the seedlings enlarge, the mulch can extend to cover around the plants. Anne Marrison is happy to answer gardening questions.

New Lexus has modern, clean look of luxury car David Chao

NOW contributor

You may not believe your eyes when you see the new 2013 Lexus ES series, because the styling is so modern, so clean, and so handsome that you will swear you are looking at an expensive European luxury car costing twice as much. In particular, it’s significant this year because – for the first time since its debut – the new sixth generation ES series also include the hybrid version called the Lexus ES 300h. Hybrids are a growing market trend and command an increasing share of both Toyota and Lexus sales these days. Yes, generally the initial purchase price is more, and there’s a cargo space sacrifice in order to make room for the hybrid’s battery pack. The attraction of hybrids also goes beyond fuel economy savings, especially for an affluent buyer who’s paying more than $40,000 for an ES 300h. It’s cool and gratifying to be part of the green movement these days. More and more consumers are opting for the green choice on lots of products, even though there’s usually an extra monetary outlay involved. In the case of Lexus ES, the 300h hybrid costs $4,400 more than its gas-engine-only partner, the ES350. On the other hand, you can also make a financially sound case for buying a hybrid if you believe the price of gasoline will continue on an upward trend and the hybrid model will maintain a higher value at the end of your ownership period. Both are reasonable assumptions.

The ES 300h sports the new, more aggressive look of Lexus on the outside and has a longer wheelbase that allows more interior room. It’s most apparent in the rear seat area where there’s a considerable increase (104 mm) in legroom and some extra (18 mm) of headroom. In addition, there are electronic and connectivity improvements, new safety features and new steering and suspension upgrades that significantly enhance the driving experience. The new front suspension has opposite-wound coil springs that provide better straight-line stability and the rear suspension geometry has been revised. Its new steering gear has a quicker ratio (14.8:1 compared to 16.1:1) and a more responsive feel. The rear-mounted battery pack in the hybrid also gives the front-drive ES a more balanced feel on the road. The base ES 300h comes with environmentally friendly NuLuxe upholstery, and both semi-aniline leather and genuine leather are available in upgrade packages. The option packages can also pile on lots of premium luxury features like a heated wood and leathertrimmed steering wheel, window shades on the rear doors, a power rear window sun shade, a onetouch power trunk closer and both heated and ventilated front seats.


A modern sedan shape with a sweeping roofline, the new ES has a lower and slightly longer profile and noticeably shorter body overhangs front and back, due to its 45.7 mm

longer wheelbase. Overall, the new look of Lexus is more sculptured and shapelier, yet still includes the characteristic horizontal spindle grille. Daytime running lights are a string of LED’s that form a clever and distinctive “L” shaped pattern.

While the ES 350 has dual exhaust pipes sticking out the back, there’s no visible exhaust pipe on the ES 300h. What it does come with is a trunk lid spoiler (for improved aerodynamics), plus unique 17-inch alloy wheels and distinctive

badges with blue shading.


No surprises here, the emphasis is on comfort in a cabin that also provides a nice sense of openness and refinement. My test 300h came with a leather package ($6,550), with added

wood trim that was also on sections of the steering wheel. Navigation and an absolutely awesome Mark Levinson audio system were also included. I usually don’t comment on audio systems unless they’re exceptional, Lexus Page 23

Lexus: Relaxed driving experience continued from page 19

and the optional Mark Levinson system certainly falls into that category. It offers 12-channel DVD audio through a 835-watt amplifier and 15 speakers. You’ll hear sounds that you’ve never noticed before in tunes that you’ve heard a million times. The leather package also includes Remote Touch Interface, which can be used to operate climate, audio, phone, navigation and more, with a mouse-like controller on the centre console. It’s a second generation system that gives the user a unique tactile feel, called “haptic” feedback, as it locks on to usable screen icons. Functions can be configured by the driver, and the “enter” command is now accomplished by simply pushing down the controller. While the trunk of the ES 300h is smaller (by 87L) than the ES 350, it’s still a good size and big enough for most owners. Fold-down rear seatbacks are not a feature offered on either vehicle, however, a small passthrough flap (for long skinny objects – like ski equipment) is offered on the ES 350. One disappointment was the black material used on the front seatbacks, which was at odds with an otherwise refined cabin décor. I’m sure most buyers who pay extra for leather upholstery would prefer a matching-colour leather panel.


The ES comes standard with class-leading 10 airbags. Knee air bags provide extra protection for both the driver and front passenger, and there are seat-mounted side air bags, front and rear. The selection of optional safety features include blind spot monitor (with rear cross traffic alert), lane departure alert, automatic high beam dimming technology, and even a pre-collision system that uses submillimetre wave radar.


While I wouldn’t go so far as to call the ES 300h a “sport sedan,” it’s certainly no couch on wheels. Unexpected driving delights included quicker responding electric rackand-pinion steering, rock steady straight line directional control on the highway and driver selected performance modes that change engine, transmission and steering settings. The emphasis is on a relaxed driving experience, when you get behind the wheel of an ES 300h. Its controls are clearly marked, easy to find and uncomplicated. A supple suspension does a superb job of cushioning road irregularities and suppressing outside noise and it’s complimented by the smoothnest hybrid drive system that I’ve had the pleasure to drive. Basically it’s a Lexus version of the Camry hybrid drive system. An

Atkinson-cycle 2.5-litre, four-cylinder gas engine that can produce 156 horsepower is linked to an integrated hybrid electric motor/generator. Together they can produce a total yield of 200 horsepower, when needed. The transmission is a CV (continuously variable) type, and there’s a 245-volt nickelmetal hydride battery pack stored behind the rear seats, in the trunk. The ES 300h is heavier (by 50 kg) than the ES 350 and apparently about a second slower to 100 km/ hour, yet it can be surprisingly quick off the line from a standing start. The extra weight is in the back, which actually helps the overall balance of the car and improves handling. Around town a driver can use an EV (or electric only) mode at speeds up to 40 km/hour, until battery charge is depleted. Exceptionally good fuel economy is possible in an urban setting or during a heavy traffic commute, where this mode and the hybrid drive system can be used to their full potential. It transitions between electric or gasoline power, or both, almost seamlessly. City fuel consumption in an ES300h is about half that of the ES 350 (4.7 L/100km vs 9.4 L/100km), based on Natural Resources Canada ratings. Or to express it another way, C02 emissions from an ES 300h are estimated to be 1,610 Kg lower annually.

hether you’re new to working out or just searching for a full-body alternative to traditional cardio routines, a pool program can provide cardiovascular and strength benefits. The tried-and-true method of swimming lengths provides excellent aerobic exercise for all fitness levels.

If coupled with good eating habits, swimming will also burn off excess body-fat.

If so, you may be eligible for financial assistance under the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program. Find out today if you are eligible and if you meet all of the requirements as a low-income homeowner or as a landlord applying on behalf of an eligible tenant.

HAFI adapts homes for B.C. seniors and people with disabilities Brenda has always been an active woman. However, recent health issues including osteoarthritis in her left knee and losing kidney function have slowed her down. Her mobility is limited and she is now on dialysis three days a week. To adjust to her changed circumstances, Brenda sought help with her daily living activities. Part of that help came from the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program offered through BC Housing. Launched in January 2012, the HAFI program provides financial assistance to help eligible low-income seniors and people with disabilities adapt their homes so they can continue to live independently. Brenda applied for a new walk-in bathtub because she couldn’t safely get out of the tub on her own. Walk-in tubs include additional safety measures such as anti-slip floors, grab bars, and a very low step in. Home adaptations may also include handrails in halls or stairs, ramps for

Terry Fox named for new Hall honour Contributed story

Clan legend and Canadian hero Terry Fox will be the first inductee in a new category at the SFU Clan Hall of Fame luncheon on March 12. The Terry Fox Honourary Inductee honour will be awarded to a SFU student/athlete who has made a contribution to the community Fox was a Canadian humanitarian, athlete, and cancer research activist. In 1980, despite the amputation of one leg, he embarked on a cross-Canada run to raise money and awareness for cancer research. Fox was a distance runner and basketball player for his Port Coquitlam high school and at SFU. Entering the hall this year as athletes are Carol Huynh (wrestling), Teresa (Kleindienst) Gabriele (basketball), Dr. Tim Bach (swimming), John McGrane (soccer), Alan Kristmanson (basketball) and Ted Warkentin (football). Former Clan track and field coach Zenon Smiechowski will go in, as will Dr. Bob McCormack in the builder’s category and the 1999 NAIA national champion Clan softball team. Hunyh led the Clan women’s wrestling program to the first of six Canadian Interuniversity Sport Championships that in a seven-year span. She won multiple international medals at world championships, World University Games, Commonwealth Games, Pan Am Games and also captured Canada’s first and only Olympic gold medal in women’s wrestling in 2008. Hunyh returned to the Olympics in London in 2012 and captured a bronze medal. Gabriele is also an Olympian, having competed for Canada at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney and more recently at the 2012 Games in London.

Gabriele and the Clan entered the Canadian Interuniversity Sport the following year, where she was named an All-Canadian twice while leading SFU to a 35-0 record and a national championship in 2001-02. Bach was part of three consecutive NAIA championship swim teams, including the firstever for the program in 1972. Internationally, he represented

Canada at the Pan Am Games in 1971, the World University Games in 1973 and the Olympic Games in 1972. McGrane achieved greatness on the soccer pitch for the Clan and is a member of the Canadian Soccer Hall of Fame. He was an NAIA All-American in 1975 and ’76, when he was part of the first NAIA championship for the SFU men’s soccer team. McGrane went on to play professional soccer

from 1977 to 1985 in the North American Soccer League. Kristmanson was a part of the Clan men’s basketball program and led the team in points in his final season at SFU. He went on to play for the Canadian national team and represented Canada at the Olympic Games. He awas also an assistant coach at SFU for five years. Warkentin was a pioneer of Clan athletics as a member of the school’s first football and basketball teams. He also held the honour of being the first Rhodes Scholar candidate at SFU. Warkentin was also one of the first Clan football players to reach the Canadian Football League, playing several seasons for the B.C. Lions after graduating. Smeichowski was SFU’s track and field coach from 1982 to ‘99. He was the architect behind 10 NAIA championships for Clan teams and was named the coach of the year twice. As an athlete, he won a bronze medal in the decathlon at the 1979 Pan Am Games and was a four-time national champion from 1976 to 1979. Being inducted as a builder is McCormack, who is the team doctor for SFU Athletics varsity sports teams. He has taken part in numerous international, multisport events, including several Olympic Games. The 1999 SFU softball team set a program record with 40 wins in a season and just seven losses – records that still stand today. The team had a 17-3 record in conference play that season, competing in a conference that combined NCAA Division II and NAIA schools. The Clan women defeated Oklahoma City 7-3 in the final for the program’s first of three national titles. Tickets for the luncheon are on sale for $60 and can be purchased by emailing Steve Lewarne at or calling 778-7823613.

Burnaby student top gymnast in national trials Tom Berridge sports editor

Burnaby Central Secondary student Taylor Oakley won the all-around at the first two freestyle gymnastic trials this season. Last weekend, Oakley won the all-around for national open gymnasts, placing first in floor exercises with a personal-best score, while also winning silver medals on balance beam and uneven bars, and a bronze on vault at the second trial hosted in Surrey. Last month, Oakley had a personal-best score on bars, earning second-place scores on the appa-

ratus, as well as on vault and floor at her Flicka Gymnastics Club in North Vancouver on Feb. 16. She also won the beam and the allaround in the first of four trials of the national championships in Ottawa from May 20 to 25. With the results, Oakley already earned a berth at the Western Canadian championships. At the conclusion of the remaining two trials, the top six combined scores for national open gymnasts will be selected to compete for Team B.C. at the nationals. The next two events will be held in Abbotsford on March 23 and the provincial championships

in Prince George in the first week of April.

Flipping out

Wings Gymnastics Society was flying at the opening meet of the season at the Flip City invitational in Abbotsford last month. Raquel Slotten placed first on bars and on floor and placed second in the all-around in the Level 3 open division. Slotten also placed third on both vault and beam. In Level 3 novice, Alora Jones won the all-around, with firstplacements on vault and floor and runner-up on beam and bars. Megan Heron and Emma

Crooks were first and second, respectively in Level 2 open. Heron won on floor, was second on vault and bars, and third on beam, while Crooks was first on both vault and beam, and fourth on bars and floor. At Level 1, Kyara Liu placed first in the novice division, while Paige Wournell was first allaround in the argo class. Wings just missed a clean sweep of the Level 1 tyro division, taking four of the top-five placements. Kelsey Longeau was first in the Gymnastics Page 34

South to back door at AAA finals Tom Berridge

sports editor

Burnaby South had the heart, but not quite the depth in its first-round matchup against No. 4ranked Oak Bay Breakers. The Rebels were relegated to the undercard following a 76-48 loss to the Vancouver Island champions at the B.C. AAA girls’ basketball championships at the Langley Events Centre on Wednesday. South played Lower Mainland wild card W.J. Mouat on Thursday (after NOW deadlines). Stephanie Labbé led the Rebels with 13 points in the opening round matchup. “We gave them a run in the beginning, but it always felt we were like one step behind. They had good depth,” said South point guard Pavneet Brar, who had 12 points. Manpreet Nijjar also contributed 11 points to the Rebels’ scoreline. South did a good job managing Oak Bay’s superiority under the basket, but when the Breakers were forced to the perimeter, they made their shots, Brar said. “(Oak Bay) had too much going on,” added Brar. Trailing 37-21 at the half, South made a minicomeback at the restart, but didn’t have the firepower to overtake the Victoria school. “What really sunk us was they hit three threes in a row late in the third quarter,” said South coach Merv Magus, who is appearing in his first senior provincial after 44 years of coaching high school ball. “We were catching up a little and then boom, boom, boom.” In 2007, Magus coached a team of Rebel girls to eighth place at the junior basketball provincials. “I just look at it as another tournament. It’s the last one of the season,” said Magus. “But, it’s a prestige thing. … You get some reward for having a pretty good season.”

NayoRaincock-Ekunwe capped her final season at Simon Fraser University as the Great Northwest Athletic Conference women’s basketball player of the year. Raincock-Ekunwe finished the regular season as the conference’s third leading scorer, averaging 16.9 points per game and the top rebounder with 12.7 boards per. The fifth-year senior leads the NCAA Division II with a 66.1 field goal percentage. She also ranks third in rebounding and in double-doubles, with 18. Raincock-Ekunwe earned first-team all-conference honours for the third straight year.

forward Megan Hingston were the only unanimous selections. Knudsen was also a repeat selection from last year’s first team. Simon Fraser guard Erin Chambers was selected the Great Northwest defensive

player of the year. Chambers helped lead a Clan defense that allowed a conference-low 55.0 points per game. Joining Chambers on the second all-star team was fifth-year guard

Kristina Collins. SFU will play the quarter-final winner between third-seeded Montana State Billings and sixth seed Seattle Pacific in Lacey, Washington on Friday.

Simon Fraser University will open the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League playoffs at home tonight (Friday), beginning at 7:30 p.m. The second-place Clan club will be playing a home-and-home series against Thompson Rivers University this weekend. If necessary, a tiebreak game will be played on Sunday in Burnaby at 6 p.m. SFU won all five matchups with the Kamloops club during the regular season, but all bets are off in the post season, said Clan head coach Mark Coletta. The two most recent wins have both been close, including a shootout win at Thompson Rivers last month and a narrow 6-4

win at home last weekend. “Any time the playoffs start, it’s 0-0,” Coletta said. “They’ll have a full lineup. They played injured in four or five games in the first semester. They’re tough, hard to play against and stingy.” Winning in the old Memorial Arena in Kamloops is also a hardship, Coletta added. “It’s a historic building and small to say the least. You’ve got to be prepared for more physical elements of the game. … You can’t get lost in a rink like that,” he said. League champion Selkirk College will face the defending playoff champion University of Victoria in the other semifinal. The two winners will then meet in best-of-three series, beginning on March 15.

Ice dancers miss top 10 at jr. worlds Canadian junior ice dance champions Madeline Edwards and ZhoaKai Pang left a lot of points on the ice at the International Skating Union World junior figure skating championships in Milan, Italy. Edwards and 17-yearold partner Pang from Burnaby were sixth following the short program, but fell to 12th after the free dance portion of the event last weekend. Edwards and Pang performed a personal best 135point total at a Grand Prix event last year. The B.C. Centre of Excellence pair managed just 117.65 points at this year’s worlds. Russia’s Alexandra

Stepanova and Ivan Bukin garnered more than 150 points to win the ice dance gold. Canada’s Mackenzie Bent and Burnaby-born Garrett MacKeen were fourth following a 55.88 personal-best score in the short program. The Ontario couple placed fifth overall with a 128.79 total. In the junior men’s final, former Burnaby resident Nam Nguyen finished in 12th spot following a personal-best 172.58 point total that placed him ninth overall. Nguyen also skated a best-ever freeskate that garnered him 119.15 points in the long program at the junior worlds.

Gymnastics: Argo results continued from page 33

all-around, with wins on beam and floor, second on bars and third on vault. Gina Rimar was second all-around, winning bars, placing second on beam and fourth on both vault and floor. Claire Bezdan and Ana Clara Feldman finished fourth and fifth in the all-around. Bezdan had a best third on bars and floor, while Feldman won the vault and was second on floor.

Michael Eugene

Beloved father Michael Eugene Richard passed away February 24th 2013 at Surrey Memorial Hospital. Michael was born to a large family in the small town of Digby, Nova Scotia on March 4th 1948. The son of a social activist father, and a devoted mother, Michael carried a sense of social justice, a critical judgment, and a dedicated work ethic with him throughout his life. While jumping trains and hitchhiking across Canada, Michael found diverse employment and companionship. Michael grew up working on a farm, served in the Navy in his youth, picked in orchards, worked in pulp mills, and spent the last two decades as a power engineer. Michael also learned and practiced sundry other mechanics, and home-renovations in his spare time. Why Michael settled in New Westminster might have had something to do with the trains and the river—which reminded him of both his home and his journey outward from it. His surviving children retain his questioning nature, wry sense of humour, and love of Dostoevsky. He’ll be missed by family and coffee-shop companions alike. If you would like to contact the family, please do so at:




(nee Jones) Born July 1924 in Anyox BC, passed away peacefully Febuary 2013 in Port Coquitlam BC. Predeceased by her husband Allan in 1997. She will be missed by her daughters; Judy (John) Shaw, and Janet (Mike) Luke and grandchildren; LJ, Emily (Cameron) and Andrew, as well as many family and friends. A Celebration of her Life will take place on March 16th, 2013 at 1:00pm at Milestones (2745 Barnet Hwy) Coquitlam. In lieu of flowers, donation to the the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

July 24, 1926 - February 28, 2013

We are deeply saddened by the death of Marion Senf, following a year of rapidly declining health. Born in Everett, Ontario, she was the youngest child in a family of 6 boys, all of whom have predeceased her. The family had all relocated to the West Coast by 1937, and following high school, Marion was employed by BC Tel from 1943 to 1981, eventually becoming an operations supervisor. She was sadly predeceased by her husband Joseph Piwoda in 1978, and by her 2nd husband, Ed Senf. She was also predeceased by her beloved niece Joanne and her two nephews Bernard and Geoffrey. Left to mourn are her loving niece Penny and sister-in-law Doris of Kelowna and her special friend and niece-by-marriage Deanna (Bob), and she will be greatly missed by her many extended family members. Travelling, ballroom dancing, volunteering for the Pacific Open Heart Association, and playing a mean game of Snooker were some of her many interests. Singing with her friends in the Dogwood Songsters was also a source of much happiness for her. One of her greatest joys was gathering family members to share in the wonderful Polish dishes she and Grandma Drayton prepared. The family extends a sincere thank-you to Dr. Moira Bradford; Christine Whittingham, Clinical Care Coordinator; Irma Yates, Social Worker; and the staff of Parkside Nursing Station at Fellburn Care Centre for their compassionate and expert care of Marion during her time with them. A graveside service will be held at Ocean View Burial Park, 4000 Imperial Street, Burnaby on Saturday, March 9th at 11:00 a.m. Arrangements entrusted with First Memorial Funeral Service, Vancouver (604-876-5385). With respect, flowers are declined and memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC or the Salvation Army.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Cancer June 21-July 22: Intellectual, travel, cultural, religious or philosophical elements continue to guide you, especially Sunday/Monday, when these – and gentle love – tug your sleeve. However, start no new projects nor relationships before March 17 – stick with ongoing or past situations. Ambition kicks in Tuesday to Thursday noon – all looks smooth, but a “contrary element” lurks – perhaps a co-operator or partner is against the creative elements you’ve introduced, but isn’t ready to say so, yet. Social joys enter Thursday p.m. to Saturday – popularity, wish fulfillment, light romance arrive. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: A doorway to mystery faces you – enter to collect clues about your subconscious urges, directions, for the whole decade ahead. E.g., visit a psychic, counsellor or advisor. Although you should not begin any financial project (or ANY important project!) before March 17, this is an excellent week – especially Sunday/Monday – to research, investigate and study the arenas you want to operate in. E.g., study investments, but make no choices before March 17. Your sexual urge climbs. Wisdom, gentle love visit you midweek. Show higher-ups what you can do, Thursday p.m. to Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Relationship’s “meaning” stands before you Sunday/Monday. You might renew a former link, in love or practical areas. But don’t begin a new relationship – it would not last long, and be rather fruitless. Don’t begin anything new before March 17. Life’s mysteries, sexual drives, financial astuteness, health diagnoses, dreams and subconscious urges fill midweek. (You’ve noticed, probably, that sex has changed – a friendly but unpredictable note, and some stress, has entered this area. A far different relationship awaits you, and this is part of the river pushing you toward it.)

2010 Celebration of Business Excellence

Aries March 21 - April 19: Continue to rest, lie low, and contemplate the mysteries of the universe, especially Sunday/Monday, when you can be extra tired. (These days might also bless you with a government-related breakthrough, an invitation to join management, or success with/in an institution. Your energy rises nicely Tuesday/Wednesday: tackle chores – more correctly, obligations – that have daunted you previously. (E.g., visiting an unpleasant family member.) Chase money Thursday eve to Saturday – your luck’s mildly good, except early Friday. All week, avoid new starts. Seek (or give) therapy, advice. Taurus April 20-May 20: Wishes can still come true, Taurus, if they connect to the past – e.g., hope I can meet that attractive person again. An old social group might return. Life was once good, and it will be good again. Sunday/Monday, your popularity, optimism and delight grow! But retreat for a second wind Tuesday to Thursday noon; rest, contemplate (don’t plan) and deal with agencies, government, head office, admin tasks. Your energy surges Thursday afternoon to Saturday – your charisma gives you clout, the ability to get things done. Call in favours. But DON’T start new ventures or relationships. Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing new. The accent remains on your career, standing in the community, dealing with bosses, VIPs and parents – and your own role in these. (E.g., how’s your parenting going?) You’re ambitious, and Sunday/Monday hint at the birth of a new career venture. But let this “new” venture be a resurrection of a past, perhaps abandoned goal – and enlist familiar people, not new faces. E.g., if you’ve wanted to operate heavy machinery for some years, now you get the chance to proceed. Happiness, popularity, optimism fill midweek. Retreat for a good rest Thursday eve to Saturday.

Daycare Centres

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Wrap up outstanding chores this week – start Sunday/Monday, don’t delay! March 20 will begin a month of new opportunities, horizons, and perhaps, relationships. Do the work now, so you’ll be free to pursue these bright new things when they come. Finish only – don’t start anything (or anybody) new before March 17. Midweek gives you a clue about late March/April: relationships flow smoothly (though, almost unseen, a deep change in your home affects relationships, and will, all this decade). Mysteries, sexual urges, financial exigencies fill Thursday noon onward. Someone’s coming! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Midweek (TuesdayThursday) brings chores, hints that a major new task or employment lies ahead. But start nothing before March 17. Meanwhile, romance, creative urges, pleasure and beauty, risk and reward fill this week. But let it be an ongoing romance (or contact an old flame). In risk, taking a position in the stock market, then clearing it in a day or three, wins – but buying to hold can disappoint. All these wonderful things – romance, creativity, winning, et al – blossom splendidly Sunday/ Monday. Relationships fill Thursday noon to Saturday. Be flexible, diplomatic and eager. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The accent continues on home, nest egg, security, kids, nutrition, retirement, gardening and nature. Avoid new starts in these or any area this week. Instead, especially Sunday/Monday, renew family contacts, shore up old landscaping, restart abandoned repairs, or deal with ongoing situations. Your romantic (and beauty) sensors come alive Tuesday to Thursday: treat this as a hint of what’s to come (very soon, after March 19) rather than as “the thing itself.” If you’re in a relationship, enjoy it! Work and health concerns arrive Thursday noon to Saturday: all’s smooth.

March 10 - 16, 2013 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The accent continues on communications, details, paperwork, applications and reports, short trips, casual acquaintances. This is a talk period, not a do period. DON’T start anything, especially Sunday/Monday, and especially in these zones. E.g., don’t buy a mobile phone or order printed stationery, etc. This is not merely a delay: it hints, to a degree, that you simply should not be expanding this area at all this year. Sink into your home, soul, deepest thoughts midweek: contemplate where you’re really going, what’s really important. Romance strikes Thursday p.m. to Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Money, earnings, costs, possessions remain in focus.Watch these all week, but do not attempt to expand them – don’t ask for a raise, or purchase anything big (lemons abound). Sunday/ Monday might spark a “redo” of an old money project. Midweek brings friends, talks, trips, and all sorts of minor interesting bits and pieces of information: be a sponge, soak up facts, figures. Contact old friends, visit old ‘hoods. Thursday p.m. to Saturday finds you a bit weary, so take naps, rest, be with family, visit your garden, contemplate. Soon, you’ll become ultraactive! Romance? Soon! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy and charisma remain high – in fact, they soar Sunday/Monday: you’re the star, and everybody knows it! This doesn’t mean you should command everyone to jump into a new project – start nothing major before the 17th. So enjoy this week. Aim your efforts toward collecting past debts and favours (Tuesday to Thursday) and re-connecting with those you might have slighted or ignored in times past (Thursday p.m. to Saturday). Midweek gives you a hint of a money trend that will apply now to late April – more will pour in, and more out: remain aware, be a disciplined spender. • Reading: 604-886-4808
