Shin stays despite comment Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

NDP candidate Jane Shin is once again raising eyebrows, this time with a comment she made online 11 years ago, saying she was fed up with the “chinkasauruses roaming about Vancouver.” According to the online Urban Dictionary, “chinkasaur” is a “semioffensive reference to an older/ elderly Asian person.” Shin, the NDP candidate for Burnaby-Lougheed, did not return a call and email from the Burnaby NOW, nor was her campaign manager available.

‘...THE SECRECY IN WHICH THE NOTICES WERE SENT OUT ISN’T ACCEPTABLE’ – JAMES SANYSHYN

Union prez says district issued 75 layoff notices Cayley Dobie staff reporter

The Burnaby school district sent out layoff notices to teachers in the district last week after only days before publicly approving a budget that didn’t include any actual staffing layoffs. According to Burnaby Teachers’ Association president James Sanyshyn, 75 full-time teachers were given layoff notices last week. While he understands the trustees have no choice but to balance the

budget – even if that requires layoffs – the secrecy in which the notices were sent out isn’t acceptable, he said. “Right after the board passed its budget, what that did was enacted about 75 layoff notices for teachers,” he said. “They would have approved that in an in-camera session prior to the public session.” The NOW reported last week that the Burnaby school district would be cutting about 3.5 staff allocations for both elementary and secondary levels, which was outlined in the district’s 2013/14 pre-

liminary budget and passed at the April 23 meeting. These cuts were part of 7.5 reductions in positions throughout the district. Reductions would come from the reorganization of positions within the following groups: custodial services, district vice-principals and secondary international enrolling staff allocations. Staffing allocations were reduced by slight increases to class sizes, according to the report. In an email to the NOW last week, Greg Frank, secretary-treasurer for the district, said the adjustments highlighted in the

budget wouldn’t result “in any direct layoffs as they will be achieved through very small reductions in our staffing allocation formulas across all schools.” But Sanyshyn said this isn’t what has happened. “To say there were no layoffs is disingenuous and it doesn’t foster good relationships between the union and the employer,” he said. “The board had a layoff meeting strangely enough – if you didn’t have any layoffs then why would you have a layoff Layoffs Page 8

ELECTION 2013: FOCUS ON THE BURNABY-EDMONDS RIDING, BY STEFANIA SECCIA, REPORTER

The personal and political: Candidates revealed Jeff Kuah, Liberal

Raj Chouhan, NDP Question: How long have you lived in Burnaby? Answer: First time I lived in Burnaby was 1973. After living here for a couple of years, moved to Surrey, back to New Westminster then to Victoria and … since 2000 living back in Burnaby again. Q: Why do you think you are uniquely qualified to represent the riding? A: I have been MLA for BurnabyEdmonds since 2005. I have the experience. I have had the opportunity and privilege to meet with so many different people. Burnaby-Edmonds is a very diverse community. You really need to be there to learn their issues, know what they think, what they want. Q: What would be your own personal priority as an MLA? A: Well to be the voice of people. Since 2005 I have been very vocal, talking about people’s issues, seniors, students, women’s issues, equality issues, social justice issues, in the community as well as in the legislature. I have been looking forward to continue to be that voice for people. Q: What accomplishment in your life are you proudest of? A: There are so many. Well, since 2005 I started representing people in Burnaby. We have had so many people walking through the MLA’s office door who have had different issues, different concerns, but I just remember one story. At one time there was a lady who was taken to hospital. She was an elderly lady, on low income. After about three or four days after being in hospital she was brought back to her house, during that time she lost her dentures. When she came home, she contacted her social worker and asked either to find her dentures or give her new dentures. The government staff told her, “Sorry, no, you just had your new dentures only a few months ago. We can’t do it. What we will do, we will buy you

Question: How long have you lived in Burnaby? Answer: I have been living in the provincial riding of Burnaby-Edmonds since July 2009 with my wife and five children. My children attend Burnaby South Secondary School and Suncrest Elementary School. The oldest is currently working at a Lower Mainland cancer research facility under a UBC coop work team. We have enjoyed, since 1997, many picnics, walks, and bike rides in Central Park, and we continue to do so now, living in the south-slope neighbourhood. We also have been regular visitors to Ron McLean Park and the Bonsor recreational facility when we lived on Gilley Avenue. The people in the neighbourhood have been phenomenal with their kindness and have continuously reached out to include us in the community. A special thank you goes to Vicky Briggs, who has been our children’s “adopted grandma” after noticing that our family had fallen victim to an ill-handled secondary suite and offered her help: thank you to Burnaby and Vicky. Q: Why do you think you are uniquely qualified to represent the riding? A: I am a counsellor for young adults, and my years of experience dealing with students in the education sector provide me with an extensive understanding of their aspirations and those of their parents. As one of the many fathers in this community, I just want what is best for our children. I am trained in business management, sociology and political science: the perfect combination for a candidate running for the people. Q: What would be your own personal priority as an MLA? A: I would like to see young adults in the province adequately prepared for their futures; as a high school counsellor in secondary schools and as an academic advisor in the post-secondary education

Question: How long have you lived in Burnaby? Answer: I first moved to Burnaby two years ago to start my career, since then I’ve been working as an engineer. Q: Why do you think you are uniquely qualified to represent the riding? A: I think there’s two things that play in my favour; one is that I’ve lived abroad. When I was five years old my parents moved to France and I learned what it was like to go to a school where you don’t speak the language and having to live a life in a new country. So, obviously Burnaby-Edmonds there’s a lot of people – new Canadians – coming in and I understand what they’re going through. Second thing, as a young Canadian, I don’t have the choice but to take the long-term problem seriously because I’m 26 years old, if I want to be in politics for 20 years, I have to take the future seriously because I’ll be paying the price if I don’t. So in that sense, I’m more accountable for the future than older politicians are. Q: What would be your own personal priority as an MLA? A: My own personal priority as an MLA would probably be to fight for the younger generations, fight for the future. There’s a lot of politicians in Victoria and in general who are very good at focusing on right now, what you want right now. But they’re not very good at thinking up for ahead of time. So as a young politician I would bring that to the table. Q: What accomplishment in your life are you proudest of? A: There are a few things, but the biggest one was when I was an engineering student I brought together a team of 30 students and we made a feature length film. It was a three-year project; we did everything from writing the script to

Question: How long have you lived in Burnaby? Answer: I actually just moved out in January because Surrey was a lot more affordable, but I lived there pretty much my whole life as long as I can remember, since I was about five or six years old. Q: Why do you think you are uniquely qualified to represent the riding? A: Well I went through the educational system, for one, under both the NDP and the Liberals. I grew up there my whole life and I’ve seen what it was and what it is now and I have a pretty good idea of what it will be in the future. Basically, it’s my home. I’ve seen it grow, I’ve seen it flourish, so I know the people, I know the riding. Q: What would be your own personal priority as an MLA? A: Education for one, that’s my top priority. I really believe that BurnabyEdmonds can be a prime example for how the provincial education system should be and can be. One, because of all of the immigrants and whatnot and the fact that it’s so multicultural and diverse, if we can make it work in Burnaby-Edmonds there’s no reason why it couldn’t work any where else. Q: What accomplishment in your life are you proudest of? A: Turning my life around. I was a dropout, and I completely turned my life around. I got working, I’ve done all sorts of jobs and now I’m enrolled in BCIT to become an aircraft maintenance engineer. Q: Who, in your life, has been a role model for you? A: My grandfather was the biggest role model for me. He had a very tough life, he’s a survivor, he came here from Poland and he’s a very educated man there, and basically re-did everything here and eventually became professor emeritus for the University of Saskatchewan. He’s definitely somebody I look up to.

The two youngest candidates – Tessari, 26 and D’Amico, 19 – will have to prove themselves too, in their first-ever step into the political arena against two other more experienced competitors. Kuah ran for school trustee for the Burnaby School District in 2011, but finished nearly last – but still has more political experience with campaigning than the other two. The four candidates have managed to stay out of any controversies so far, but there are still 11 days until the provincial election.

CHOUHAN: Glad to help constituents Within two hours she was told she would get her new dentures. Q: Who, in your life, has been a role model for you? A: Well, I would say, my sister. I was quite young when my mom passed away. At that time my older sister, she was in her final year doing her master’s. So, basically she adopted me and my other younger brothers and sisters, and she decided not to get married. … So she is my role model.

TESSARI: Authentically himself filming it, editing it, and soundtrack, the whole thing. It was the first leadership challenge that I ever had, and it was probably the most rewarding experience that I’ve had so far. Q: Who, in your life, has been a role model for you? A: Quite a few people, but probably the biggest one would be my dad. Mainly, just for the way he treats people and the way he has always been, there’s always been a sense of decency around

here’s no denying that the Burnaby-Edmonds riding is one of the most diverse in the city, if not the province, with a vastly developing infrastructure to keep up with the changing needs of its populace. Burnaby-Edmonds, in South Burnaby, spans from Boundary Road to Fourth Street, and from Imperial Street to the Fraser River and 10th Avenue. The riding is comprised of the forthcoming Edmonds Community Centre, the Southgate Neighbourhood Concept project with 48 acres currently under public consultation to help shape its development, and the hotly debated properties either being sold by the province, instead of being used for affordable housing, or being held by the city for a dwindling hope to see an immigration services hub in the area. For more There are 49,190 residents, with more info on the riding, than half being immigrants (53 per cent) scan with and visible minorities (59 per cent), according to 2006 census data. Afghanistan, China, Philippines, India, Taiwan, Sudan and even Pakistan are but some of the many countries the riding’s immigrants hail from. The average family income is $69,906, which is about $10,000 less than the provincial average. The top jobs are clerical, sales and service, professionals in science, retail sales and technical sciences. NDP Raj Chouhan won the riding for the second consecutive term in 2009 with 8,647 votes and beat out Liberal Lee Rankin by 2,000 votes, Green Carrie McLaren by 7,000 and Libertarian Dan Cancade by 8,200. Chouhan served as the shadow critic for multiculturalism, immigration and human rights. He’s the only veteran candidate as the three others campaigning against him are fresh on the provincial political scene. The riding hasn’t had a Conservative candidate since the 1991 general election, but has seen a multitude of other parties since then, such as the Social Credit party, Marijuana party and, now, the newly formed Excalibur party. There are currently four candidates running, including Jeff Kuah, Liberal; Nicholas Edward D’Amico, Excalibur; and Wyatt Tessari, Green. As it’s been an NDP riding since 2005, Liberal candidate Kuah has his work cut out for him to win the riding over from a politician who has been the MLA for the last eight years.

him. He was a dentist in Nanaimo for a while and the way he treated people working for him and all of his friends and family, it’s a model I hope to uphold. The other thing is, too, both of my parents have a healthy disregard for social expectations. They’ve always lived their life the way they wanted to, even though they’re pretty conservative in their way of life, so I certainly hope to be as authentically myself as they are themselves.

Although the NDP are currently ahead of the Liberals in the polls, both parties have faced criticism for leaders flip-flopping on important issues, running red lights or talking over each other during leadership debates. Depending on how the party leaders perform in the coming days and the province’s overall desire for change, the Green and Excalibur party candidates still have a chance to impress Edmonds voters. With its diverse community and interesting candidates, Burnaby-Edmonds could prove to be the wild card of the city.

Kuah: Inspired by university professor sector for more than two decades, I want our children to have the best education we can give them so that they will prosper. Q: What accomplishment in your life are you proudest of? A: Despite the many obstacles I have faced since my arrival in Canada, I am very proud of my children, who, despite living a modest lifestyle, are excelling in their personal and professional lives. Q: Who, in your life, has been a role model for you? A: My role model is Dr. Jeffrey Ian Ross, a Canadian professor of criminology and public affairs who is currently teaching in the States.

I met Dr. Ross in 1988 when I was joint-chair of the Asian Students’ Society in the University of Lethbridge, where I studied political science and business management. I took a number of higher-level political science, sociology and criminology courses after I met him in that university. Unlike other professors, Dr. Ross was a sympathizer of the international students’ plight and was very supportive of those who left their home countries in search of new ideas to help drive change. Dr. Ross became the club’s faculty advisor and helped many international students with their political careers at the University of Lethbridge, including my own.

Pilling saw a large dog that may have been a pit-bull mix, unleashed and barreling towards Finley. “My buddy has a pit bull, two of them, and one he can let run free – it’s as friendly as Finley,” Pilling explained. “I figured, OK, this guy has a (dog) off leash so it’s got to be one of the good pit bulls.” Then Pilling said he noticed the dog wasn’t slowing down and before he knew it, the big dog had flipped

Attack: New Westminster resident Darren Pilling and his little sheltie dog, Finley, were attacked last week by a large dog off its leash. The two were walking in Burnaby’s Fraser Foreshore Park when Finley was hurt.

Finley over and was trying to eat her. “I started to boot the (other) dog in the head to try to get it to let go of Finley,” he said. “The owner started yelling at me for booting his dog in the head.” Finally, the dog did stop from tearing open Finley’s underbelly and took off. Finley also took off in another direction. “I followed the owner, I was kind of in shock and panic,” he said. “I was

angry, but not in full-rage mode. I was pissed off. Somebody just attacked one of my family members.” Pilling said he got into a verbal argument with the other owner and asked for his info, which the owner refused to give. “Then I started to get pissed off and angry, and he did the old chest bump to me and told me, ‘You don’t know who I am,’” Pilling said.

a dollar a day adds up – especially if the exchange rate slips over the years. That’s in addition to the non-monetary costs we’ve endured along the borders over the past decade: increased security has meant the need for more ID, including passports or enhanced driver’s licences. If the U.S. puts a border toll in place, they’ll be taking a small chunk out of the Canadian economy. We could put up a tit-for-tat fee of our own – but that would also hurt us.

Do we want to discourage American tourists and film crews from coming up here and pouring money into our coffers? Definitely not. It’s been decades now since we had our debate about free trade with the U.S. It’s ironic that, with free trade thoroughly entrenched, the United States is now considering putting a price on the movement of individuals through the world’s longest undefended border.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Attacks against Shin unfounded

Dear Editor:

Re: Candidate under fire for resumé, Burnaby NOW, May 1. I’m angry, so shame on you, Liberals! I was asked on CBC radio recently: “What makes you angry?” and at the time I went on about my usual frustrations with the political system and how government has failed in its responsibility to govern. You know, the usual! But that has since changed, or perhaps even been exemplified. This evening as I sat to review the usual daily news I found a mini flood of articles that had the

rare ability to turn my face flush with disgust and shame. Not to mention embarrassment. The Liberals, in their pitiful drunken-like stumble have chosen nothing too valuable to grasp in their fall, and in this case, that fifth-century vase comes by the name Jane Shin. Before I continue, let me for a moment, digress. If you were to take a short ferry across the straight to Victoria and spend a day attending an active session of parliament, you would quickly find yourself seeking the nearest Grade 3 gym class for peace and calm. The place is without discipline, without manners, and without any sense of respect for the issues that matter and people affected by them. It’s in simple terms a “me, me, me” madhouse,

Attention: Unrepresented ICBC Injury Claimants NO LEGAL FEE – unless we increase your compensation

Have friends, family or a health professional urged you to see a lawyer before accepting an offer from ICBC? Call us for a free consultation. We have spoken to many people just like you. We have learned that ICBC does not base its settlement offers on how well an injury victim feels. ICBC offers money based on what the victim will be able to prove in court.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Liberals on the attack continued from page 6

which has evolved into a parasitic attitude that now eats its way directly into every election campaign. I have all along held high respect for the choice Adrian Dix has made to not run a negative campaign, and congratulate him for sticking to it. The Liberals, however, are a different story. Jane Shin and I have never been competitors so much as colleagues, regarding the other as our NDP/Green counterpart. Starting this race alone together since Christmas, we’ve crossed paths and easily become friends, with many thoughts and opinions that run parallel. Not once had we an inkling of playing dirty schoolyard games. We promised each other a respectable campaign and did even better. I must admit that to some extent I felt the sudden inclusion of a Liberal candidate in Burnaby-Lougheed as a light rain on our two-person parade, but upon meeting Ken Kramer, I was reassured that it was going to be a wonderful and clean campaign. That has all changed. Now, I’m going to play into the Liberal method here. As a son, a brother, a teacher, a friend, an elderly caregiver, a colleague, and now an MLA candidate, I am very protective. Some may even say over-protective. So when the Liberals suddenly throw a flurry of illegitimate attacks, based on rumour and social media, charging my friend with unfounded silliness and even going so far as to request her resignation, I will come to her defense. This is my riding, I live here, as do (in all obviousness) my constituents, and for bringing this shame to our borders I hold the B.C. Liberal Party in contempt. An opinion I must now stretch to you, Mr. Kramer. Simply claiming ignorance to the pursuits of the party acting for your obvious benefit leaves you far from innocent. You intend to represent the Liberal brand for BurnabyLougheed, but so long as you wear the hat of a whipped party, you are the hat. What do you have to say for yourself as a Liberal? A question every candidate in the Liberal party should be used to by now. But as their representative in my beautiful riding, what’s your answer? Darwin Burns, Green party candidate for Burnaby-

Lougheed

No layoffs? Think again Dear Editor:

Re: Burnaby balances school budget – avoids layoffs, Burnaby NOW, April 26. I think Mr. Greg Frank is confused, or someone has given him false information because I, an elementary teacher working in Burnaby, have a letter notifying me that I have been laid off sitting right beside me as I write this. I received said letter last Wednesday, when my principal handed it to me and told me with emotion filling his face that he was so sorry, but there was nothing he could do. This isn’t even the

first time I have been laid off; this is the third year in a row! It has nothing to do with my performance as a teacher or how much I contribute to the school community. According to the letter, I’ve been laid off due to “contractual requirements.” I had to sit in my classroom that I have given my blood, sweat and tears to, and listen to my principal tell me he couldn’t believe this was happening. He even called the Burnaby school board to ask if there had been a mistake. It infuriates me to hear Greg Frank claim that no teachers have been laid off. What do you call what I have experienced or the other 75 to 100 teachers who have been “laid off” in Burnaby last week? What do you call the pain, knowing that I have to leave a school I love? What do you call having to leave a staff that I adore? What do I tell my students when I tell them I won’t be here next year? Not because I have done anything wrong. Because of “contractual requirement.” I would love to invite Mr. Greg Frank to come to my school and explain to my class why I won’t be returning next year. He can see the shock, pain, hurt and disappointment on their little faces because I have already experienced this two times now and do not look forward to experiencing it for a third.

Dear Editor:

Re: Burnaby balances school budget – avoids layoffs, Burnaby NOW, April 26. Only 7.5 full jobs lost? 75 Burnaby teachers were given layoff notices in Burnaby on Wednesday. That is 75 too many. Hundreds of students and parents are losing out – it doesn’t have to be this way. Increasing class size, a district “solution” to the financial problem, may be necessary, but is it educationally sound? Teachers say no. The Education Ministry stated last fall that not designating students “enables” teachers to deal with the needs of students in their classes. What exactly does “enabling” mean? In practice, it means that teachers have to adapt each of the classes that they teach to meet the needs of each of these students. Adapting instruction for each class takes skill and it takes time. Extra university courses to help teachers to adapt cost considerably in both tuition costs and loss of earnings. Teachers now begin their careers with five years of university. Teachers have not had a pay raise in three years. Something has to change, and it is this Liberal government. It would be wonderful to have a government who saw our children and their schools as more important than investing in such things as an $600-million-plus stadium roof!

Government awareness At its April 22 meeting, council decided to participate in Local Government Awareness Week 2013, between May 19 and 25. The City of Burnaby will make a proclamation recognizing the event, there will be highlights about it in the newspapers and online, and a display will be presented at city hall. The 2013 theme is “Support Burnaby Business.” For more information, visit www.burnaby.ca.

There will also be a 2.5 per cent increase to many services such as swimming lessons, preschool programs, outdoor sports facilities, arenas programs and arena allotments. Some fees will not change. But council noted rates are actually going down 2.5 per cent with the elimination of the HST. The fees are increasing based on inflationary projections made by city staff.

Council approved three new rates in

meeting.” While there is still a chance these teachers could be back next September, Sanyshyn said he is worried they’ll be rehired by the district for positions that are fewer hours or even as on-call substitute teachers as part of the budget reductions. And in order to prevent future layoffs, there needs to be a political solution, he said. “We need to increase funding to public education,” Sanyshyn said. “It has to be targeted money, and it has to go to

improving the learning conditions of the students.” While the Burnaby school district was able to approve a balanced budget of $250,817,870, many surrounding districts are struggling to make ends meet. Frank said in a previous interview with the NOW that much of Burnaby’s success comes from planning for the future and being conservative with its spending. Neither Frank or the school district could be reached for comment on the layoffs at press time.

to Canada from Korea years ago. Kwan said the party stands by Shin, who was 21 years old when the comments were made. “I’ll use myself as an example. If I made those comments today, I should be fired,” Kwan told the Sun. “Jane made those comments in the context of a gaming forum 11 years ago, and I think today she has matured. She is a sincere, respectful person. She oozes respect when you talk to her.” Shin also recently came under fire from

the Liberals, who have questioned her credentials after combing through online articles, biographies and information about Shin, which paints an unclear picture of where she went to medical school. (Shin attended Spartan Health Sciences University in the Caribbean, where she earned a doctor of medicine, but she never did a residency and has never practised as a medical doctor.) According to The Vancouver Sun, Shin said she “accepts responsibility for the confusion over her credentials and for not catching the mistakes.” jmoreau@burnabynow.com

Attack: RCMP investigating – dog in critical condition

Check www.Burnabynow.com for breaking news, photo galleries, blogs and more

◗ continued from page 5

Then a nearby witness called Pilling and told him his dog was bleeding. “There was a pool of blood underneath her,” he said. “I scooped (Finley) up and ran back to the truck.” Pilling said it was a stressful drive searching for a nearby veterinarian clinic. After heading east back to New West, Pilling once again saw the same owner of the big dog who attacked Finley walking with his dog now leashed. “I stop, pull the truck up and pull out and said, ‘you have to give me your info,” Pilling said. “We ended up in a scuffle in the middle of the street.” That’s when the big dog, who attacked Finley, bit into Pilling’s leg. “I turned around and punched the dog in the nose and he let go,” Pilling said. “I turned back to the guy and he has a knife in his hand and he said something like, ‘Get out of here.’” The same witness who was on the trail also chanced upon Pilling and the other dog owner again, and called Pilling to pay attention to Finley. “The lady followed the guy from the trail,” he said. “She was there, yelling, ‘Your dog, your dog.’” That’s when Pilling ran back to his truck and drove “like a crazy man” to try and find a vet while Finley was bleeding out in the backseat. “I’ve been hurt and lost blood, but to see how much blood she was losing,” Pilling said, “and I’m on the phone … and I’m half crazy trying to find a vet.” When Finley finally received care she received stitches to her stomach and was stable, but a day or two later her health took a turn for the worst, according to Pilling. “We brought her back home again, and she wasn’t right at all,” Pilling said. The vet had to cut her open again and Finley’s stomach became bloated to the point where she looked pregnant, Pilling said. After Global TV’s segment on Pilling’s story earlier this week, his family was able to bring Finley to a vet hospital in Vancouver. “She’s in there now, and she had surgery last night (April 30) and there’s a hole in her stomach,” Pilling said. Finley is in critical condition, taking

it hour by hour. “She has to make it through the next four days to get stable,” Pilling said on May 1. Pilling said he’s past anger and is concerned for his dog. Meanwhile, he has had to get IV therapy every day at Royal Columbian Hospital to fight an infection from the bite in his leg. “Forget about the money,” he said about the bills that are reaching the $5,000 mark. “This guy has put my dog through hell and the rest of it so he can think he’s the cool guy with the pit bull off his leash.” Although Pilling said he’s not sure what kind of dog attacked Finley, he said it was big and looked like some kind of pit bull mix. There is a Craigslist posting asking for witnesses with photos of the man taken by the witness that day, at Vancouver. en.craigslist.ca/bnc/pet3760074310.html. Burnaby RCMP confirmed it is investigating Finley’s attack. “It doesn’t make sense,” Pilling added. “But most traumatic things don’t.”

For the record

An article in the May 1 edition of the NOW, “Burnaby North candidate clams up on charge,” stated Burnaby North B.C. Conservative candidate Wayne Marklund was found not guilty on the charge of driving while impaired.

However, the charge was dropped in February 2004 when he appeared in provincial court on the charge and then pled guilty to a lesser traffic offence; driving a motor vehicle without due care and attention.

Burnaby doctor awarded posthumously Marelle Reid staff reporter

For his years of service to the Burnaby community, orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Kenneth C. Hill has been posthumously awarded the Spirit of Philanthropy Award by the Burnaby Hospital Foundation. The award recognizes a physician, nurse or health-care professional at Burnaby Hospital whose generosity and community leadership has inspired others to become involved in supporting Burnaby Hospital. “We are so proud to be honouring Dr. Kenneth Hill with the Spirit of Philanthropy Award,” said Cheryl Carline, president and CEO of the foundation, in an email to

the NOW. “He has inspired so many here at Burnaby Hospital and in the community to be involved and give back. The contributions he’s made truly reflect how much he cared for his patients and Burnaby Hospital.” Born and raised in Yellow Grass, Sask., Hill knew at an early age that he wanted to pursue a career in medicine, according to a press release. After graduating with his medical degree and working as a resident in Memphis, Tennessee, he returned home to Canada and worked in hospitals in Saskatchewan and Alberta before making his home in Burnaby. In 1962, Hill was the first orthopaedic surgeon working in Burnaby, and was

instrumental in growing the orthopaedic he was told of the award last month. In response to the announcement, he surgical team at Burnaby Hospital. said, in a press release, “I would Inadditiontohelpingpatients like to express my appreciation to through his medical practice, he my colleagues at Burnaby Hospital gave back to the community atwho have demonstrated to me large, serving as president of the their gratitude and sincerity, which B.C.

Mother’s Day

Celebrating more than moms on Mother’s Day E

very spring individuals celebrate their mothers on Mother’s Day. It has evolved from a day to honour mothers to one that recognizes all special women. Therefore, if there is a woman in one’s life who isn’t a biological mother — but special nonetheless — Mother’s Day can be a time to tell her how much she is appreciated.

There are many reasons a person may want to honour a woman that is not his or her mother. Perhaps the person’s own mother has passed away or is not prominent in this individual’s life. Maybe there is a grandmother or aunt with whom one is especially close. There may be a teacher or mentor that has touched the life of a person in a special way. Although Mother’s Day is built around giving thanks to Mom, it’s certainly acceptable to thank women in addition to dear old Mom. Furthermore, one needn’t wait until a specific day in May to honor a notable woman. This can be

done all year long with certain gestures and sentiments. For those who are celebrating all women on Mother’s Day, here are some ways to set the day apart. * Create a handmade card with personalized sentiments that reflect the unique relationship with this special woman. This can mean more than a prepurchased card that may not offer the right words.

* Find out her interests and spend a day doing entirely what she wants to do. It doesn’t necessarily have to take place on Mother’s Day. A trip to a museum or a day at the park — whatever it may be — can be a nice outing. * Treat her to a special dinner. Ask about favourite foods and create a meal at home. If dining out is a must, choose a day other than Mother’s Day to avoid the crowds and have intimate moments with just the two of you, especially if you are also honouring your own mother on Mother’s Day. * Find something you both enjoy and

then go and do that. Maybe you met up due to a hobby or interest. Remember the first day you met and reminisce by heading to that place for a celebration. * Have an extended family fiesta. Host a Mother’s Day party at home and single out all the special women in attendance. Serve cocktails and enjoy the time spent together. Mother’s Day is a special time of the year to honour not only a person’s mom but also any other notable woman in his or her life. The holiday can be customized any way a person sees fit. —MetroCreative

Mother’s Day

Shop smart for your mom this Mother’s Day C

• Do some sleuthing. Play detective and take inventory of what Mom likes to do the most. If you ask your mother what she wants, she will likely brush off the question and tell you nothing. It is up to you to

do the investigative work. Pay attention to conversations and see if there is anything she mentions wanting to try or something around the house that may need updating. Practical gifts are less likely to end up unopened in the basement or attic. • Check expiration dates. Gift certificates and cards for particular stores or services are popular come Mother’s Day. But it is essential to check expiration dates on the certificates or find gifts, as there is a good chance Mom will put off pampering herself and you would not want the gift to expire before she has a chance to use it. In compliance

$45 VALUE. BOOK BEFORE MAY 12, 2013. OTHER GIFT CERTIFICATES AVAILABLE.

Take A Breath. Let Go.

• Skip the chocolate overload. Flowers and chocolates are traditional Mother’s Day gifts. However, calorie-conscious

women may not want to be faced with the temptation of a warehouse-sized box of chocolate treats. If Mom truly loves chocolate, treat her to a piece or two, but don’t make that your main gift. • Avoid “final sale” items. It can be tempting to peruse the deep-discount rack at Mom’s favourite store when retailers cut prices. However, these sales may come with restrictions on returns or exchanges. Unless you know Mom will like, avoid the “final sale” racks in favour of items that can be returned or exchanged. —MetroCreative

with the law, chain restaurant gift cards don’t expire for at least five years from purchase. • Verify a business. Although Mom may love a cute boutique that just opened, verify the business before buying a gift card from it. An unpredictable economy has made it even harder for new businesses to succeed, and you don’t want Mom to be stuck with a worthless gift card. If she really likes a particular new business, take her on a shopping spree at the store instead.

ome spring, shoppers often ask, “What gift should I get Mom for Mother’s Day?” How do people transform the sentiments they have for their mother into gifts that represent love and devotion? Buying a Mother’s Day gift is no easy task, especially for those who wait until the last minute to do their shopping. Here are some ways to shop in a smart manner.

North Road puts on ‘feel good’ event for moms MOVERS & SHAKERS Stefania Seccia

W

ith Mother’s Day just around the corner, one neighbourhood business association is planning something special for all moms out there. This Saturday, May 4, from 12 to 5 p.m., the North Road Business Improvement Association with Shoppers Drug Mart is hosting a free gala event, Look Good, Feel Better. “It’s fun, something to do on a hopefully sunny weekend day, make a free card for your mom (and) get a free flower for your mom,” said Carolyn Orazietti, executive director of the North Road association. “I expect it’ll be pretty upbeat.” The event is located outside of Shoppers on North Road and Cameron Street to support women who have been affected by cancer. “It benefits women who have suffered from cancer

– the appearance of the woman and her overall health,” Orazietti said. “It’ll work the self-esteem angle of it.” Highlights include free Mother’s Day crafts for kids, face painting, balloon twisting, games with prizes, free flowers for mom and free Tim Horton’s coffee. Orazietti said she also booked Cinemazoo for about an hour, which will feature famous and rescued animals of all kinds, for kids to get up close and personal with. To enter the gala event inside it’s a $10 donation, which will go towards charity, according to Orazietti. It’ll feature free snacks, beauty makeovers, grab bags filled with cosmetics and a “spine-tingling” tarot card reading. There will also be a police cruiser for kids to crawl around in. “We’ll have cotton candy and popcorn by donation and some free food,” she added. “It’s a feel-good event.” The event will feature local business merchants, police officers and staff from Cameron’s Burnaby Public Library. It’s part of a national campaign

put on by Shoppers Drug Mart. For more information, visit www.burnaby northroadbia.ca.

CSI: Burnaby biz websites

The Burnaby Board of Trade is hosting an event to inform local businesses on how to effectively track website visitors. The May 7 seminar CSI: Google Analytics is being presented by Snap Tech Marketing. By the end of the seminar, participants will know how to use Google Analytics, which can help keep track of who is looking at the site, what they were searching for, how long they spent on the site and if the online advertising is helpful, among other key components. The event is at Best Western Plus Coquitlam, from 8 to 9:30 a.m. It’s free for members, or $20 for non-members. For more information visit bbot.ca or call 604412-0100.

Starbucks in SFU’s future?

SFU students received a recent update on whether or not the famous Starbucks Coffee sign will become part of the landscape on top of the mountain. The university is currently working with Starbucks to get a location set up at the Burnaby campus, but negotiations are hinging on the Seattlebased company to provide more fair trade coffee options. Last November, a survey showed that 77 per cent of students, staff and faculty were in favour of fair trade products being offered by food vendors. “Did you know that the majority of Starbucks coffee in the U.K., France and Germany is fair trade certified, but Starbucks offers very little in Canada?” said Mark McLaughlin, executive director of Ancillary Services, in a notice to students. “We are talking with Starbucks to impress upon them the need for more fair trade coffee not only at SFU but also throughout Vancouver and across Canada.” SFU was designated as a fair trade campus

last May and is part of an international program that allows coffee farmers in developing countries to earn a decent living. “We are encouraging Starbucks to join us in engaging the world to bring about positive change,” McLaughlin said. All the food vendors, except Tim Horton’s, at the Burnaby campus, serve 100 per cent certified fair trade coffee.

Comic Book Day!

The annual and international Free Comic Book Day is back on May 4. There are two locations in Burnaby who are participating: T&N Games at #102-2849 North Rd. and Metropolis Comics & Toys at 4735 Kingsway. The stores will give away free comics, but check with the local comic book shops for rules.

Junkyard a good source for used car interiors CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: My wife has a 1999 Subaru Forester with low

mileage (85,000), but the interior is not so good. She lets the kids eat in her car, and, as such, the seats are getting ruined, the floor mats are gone, the cup holders are broken and the list goes on. I’d like to replace the broken items in her car and replace the seats and the carpet, but I don’t know where to get those items at reasonable prices. Of course, the local dealer can get some of those parts,

but at a nice premium, which I’d like to avoid. Any ideas where I can find OEM parts or replacement interior parts at reasonable prices? – Jaime RAY: Sure. At a junkyard. Also known these days by its society name, the “automotive recycling centre.” TOM: There are situations where a car will get in a wreck of some kind, and

the car is totalLed but the interior is still fine. RAY: Or the car is sent to the junkyard for some kind of catastrophic engine failure, even though the cup holders are still working like they’re brand new. TOM: In fact, you even can buy an entire interior for your car at a junkyard if you want to. RAY: Most junkyards are connected electronic-

ally these days, so if one doesn’t have what you’re looking for, they can see if another one has it. TOM: Another option is to find a body shop that’s willing to do the work for you and source the stuff “used,” from a junkyard. They do this a lot more frequently than you do. RAY: But if you do decide to do it yourself, ask if you can check out the interior

“in situ” first – that is, when it’s still in the donor car, if that’s possible. Then get in, and take a deep breath.

URBAN FORAGING

Farmers’ market back in time for spring There’s organic and conventional produce, honey, dips, cheese, kids clothes, jams, fish, coffee, desserts, soap, sauces and much more, according to Hainstock. “Starting off, we just have eight or nine farmers in the first market,” she noted. “It’s always a bit quieter until things start coming through. … It’ll grow.” With 30 vendors now, Hainstock said she expects it to climb to about 50 before the summer is through. “We’ve got room for expansion. We could have 100 vendors,” she added. There’s also a spot for a book exchange, a kids’ play area, a games table and a newspaper reading area.

“We’re always looking for people that could come and have a free space if they’re fundraising,” she said. “It’s all free for nonprofits.” The market is happening every Saturday from May 4 until Oct. 26. This year, a special event is planned for each month: June’s theme is a fishing derby and will coincide with the City of Burnaby Environmental Festival; July is Teddy Bears Picnic; August will see zucchini races; in September the “market is going to the dogs”; and October will be Halloween-themed. For more information, visit www.artisanmarkets. ca. The market is organized by the Artisan Farmers’ Market Society.

This Saturday’s Burnaby farmers’ market has promised to take over city hall’s parking lot and fill it with delicious goods and pretty things – while also entertaining the young ones. Food trucks, farmers, games, music, the mayor and about 30 vendors will be around for this season’s first market on May 4 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 4949 Canada Way at Deer Lake Parkway. “We have the most convenient market in town,” said Lyn Hainstock, manager of the market. “You get out of your car and walk three feet to your nearest vendor.”

This Saturday there’s a meet-the-mayor segment at 10 a.m. where Derek Corrigan is expected to mingle with the public. But Corrigan will be competing with the tantalizing smell of a pancake breakfast, which is being organized by the Burnaby Lougheed Lions. “That’s going to be fun,” Hainstock said. “They come a few times in the season.” This year’s food trucks will feature perogies and French cuisine, and there could be a special shaved ice truck, too, but Hainstock said she was still waiting to hear back from them. “We’re picking up, which is really nice now,” she said.

Olympic search is on at the lake Cayley Dobie staff reporter

It takes an individual with unique talents to row competitively. A person needs to be strong, tall and athletic in order to race along the water in the narrow row boats. They need a good lung capacity, especially when it comes down to the final strokes, and they need the long limbs required to make the oar strokes. According to 2008 Olympic gold-medalist, Ben Rutledge, only about one in 10,000 people would meet the physical requirements it takes to be a professional rower. Rutledge began his rowing career in his second year of university. It was his tall stature that caught the eye of a rowing coach. From there, Rutledge trained with coaches and mentors in Canada’s rowing program. He later went on to win seven World Cup medals, three world championship titles, an Olympic gold medal and in 2009 he was inducted into the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame. Canadian rowers have won 40 medals at the Olympic games, including nine gold. Because of Canada’ strong rowers, the program was given a large grant in order to create a development program that will actively search out potential rowers and train them to become the country’s next champions. Row to Podium was the result of the funding. The program targets high school students from Grades 10 to 12 who have no experience in rowing,

but have specific traits that suit the sport. Traits like height, strength and endurance are very important to being successful in the sport, Rutledge said. “We’re trying to identify Canada’s next Olympic and Paralympic champions,” he said. “We’re looking for people with some unique, exceptional physical capabilities.” Row to Podium coaches have been building rela-

tionships with high schools across the country, including Burnaby, to try to identify which students could potentially fit the necessary criteria. The program hosted a recent recruitment night at Burnaby 8 Rinks. They invited students from the community to come out and participate in two physical tests to determine whether or not they have the necessary cardiovascu-

lar endurance and body strength. Burnaby North senior, Layla Balooch was one of these unique finds that Rutledge came across at a high school volleyball game more than a year ago. “I happened to stumble upon her at the volleyball game and asked her to come along and do the tests,” he said. “She has since stopped playing vol-

leyball and she loves (rowing). It’s a tough sport and it requires a certain mindset and drive, but she loves it and is showing some great signs of future success.” Balooch placed seventh overall in the junior women’s single sculls at Rowing Canada’s Aviron’s Spring Trials at Burnaby Lake on April 20.

The Burnaby Winter Club put three players from its Tier 1 bantam A1 hockey team into the first round of the Western Hockey League bantam draft on Thursday. Dante Fabbro, a 6-0 righthanded defenceman, was picked up eighth overall by the Seattle Thunderbirds. The 15-year-old Fabbro will join best friend and winter club product Mathew Barzal, who garnered 103 points, including a record 74 assists, with the Northeast Chiefs of the B.C.

The Burnaby Winter Club and Burnaby Central Secondary School are joining forces to form a midget hockey academy that will compete in the Canadian Sports School Hockey League this fall. The elite school league, founded in 2009, will compete in an under-18 prep division for grades 11 and 12 students and a new elite 15s division against academy teams from Alberta, the Okanagan, and Lower Mainland teams from Abbotsford and South Delta. “Strategically we needed to be in this game and here we are doing it,” said BWC general manager Len McNeely. The school league differs from Burnaby North’s school academy in that it caters to a specific elite age group. It also is not in direct competition with the existing B.C. major midget hockey league and the Northwest Giants, which are also based at the winter club. The prep team is most likely to be made up of players who will not make it on a major midget roster. The elite 15s addresses an age-group gap on most existing major midget clubs and an opportunity for 15-year-old players to compete in something other than what exists at the association level, said McNeely. “Few (15-year-olds) made it on major midget teams. There was a void there and an important need to play at a higher level of competition. It’s addressing that particular void,” he added. Ian Gallagher, director of hockey operations at the South Delta academy, was a main driver in helping expand the existing school league to include a total of nine teams in one or the other of the two divisions. The Burnaby Winter Club will compete in both divisions, along with South School Page 26

Former Greater Vancouver major midget coach Leland Mack, who also spent two seasons as an assistant with the Giants, will be the head coach of the younger elite school team. A coach for the prep team will be named at a later date, said McNeely. The winter club academy will offer elite coaching, high school graduation credits, a more than 50-game schedule, as well as on-ice and dry land training.

Players will be selected based on evaluation skates likely to be held later this month. The teams will train and compete from September to June. Academy players would also be eligible to affiliate with junior teams, said McNeely. The academy program was approved by the Burnaby School District last week. The moves will not affect the club’s existing affiliations with the Giants and the Grandview Steelers of the Pacific Junior Hockey League, said McNeely. The club’s midget A1 rep team will also be available for club members to compete with at the Pacific Coast association level.

Before joining the program, she didn’t really know much about the sport of rowing other than what she had seen on television. “I knew what rowing was, but I didn’t really know how difficult it was, or the fact that it was even a cardio sport,” she said. The Burnaby native’s ranking at the spring trials will help coaches and program officials determine whether or not

she’ll be chosen for a national team one day, which is Balooch’s ultimate goal. But she admits it’ll take some more work before she’s ready for any world competitions. “When you actually (row), there’s so much to think about,” she said. “Every stroke is different, and you always have a new thing to think about.” Until then, Balooch will continue her training with Rutledge and the Row to Podium program while, hopefully attending the University of B.C. next September. For more information or to try out for the program, visit www.rowtopodium.ca.

Choices has been the proud recipient of local and national Fair Trade awards since 2010. What is Fair Trade? According to Fair Trade Canada Fair Trade is a different way of doing business. It is about making principles of fairness and decency mean something in the marketplace. It seeks to change the terms of trade for the products we buy – to ensure the farmers and artisans behind those products get a better deal. Most often this is understood to mean better prices for producers, but it often means longer-term and more meaningful trading relationships as well. Visit www.fairtrade.canada.ca 2010, 2013 Awards. Your loyalty has helped Choices achieve these awards. Thank you!
