Heritage buses homeless?
Transit Museum Society on verge of losing warehouse space for its buses because of TransLink cuts Stefania Seccia staff reporter
As TransLink scrambles to balance its budget by cutting costs, its own heritage has become a casualty. Last fall, TransLink informed the Transit Museum Society that it would no longer support it financially and that the society would have to leave its Burnaby warehouse – where it currently rents space to store most of its older buses – by Sept. 30. Since 1986, the society has documented and preserved the province’s transit heritage by restoring and operating historical vehicles. It all may come to an end if they can’t find a new home, according to Bryan Larrabee, the society’s secretary. “We understand cutting the cost for the lease in this, we understand why they’ve done it,” Larrabee said. “It’s too bad we’re caught up in the circumstances, but they’ve probably made tougher cuts that have impacted people even more so. So we understand that and going back to them and saying, Can you just restore everything the way it was – that’s just a pie in the sky. There’s no way it’s going to happen.” The society has about 12 buses in its warehouse, some dating back to the 1930s. The buses are often seen at festivals, community events, schools or even driving around a wedding party on a special day. “There were employees of this company that went through great pains with the support of the company to save these buses,” he said. “It’s a brainchild of people within the company, and you’d think that they might want to reconsider and think of a way they could save it.”

The society is scrambling to find a way to save its heritage vehicle collection after learning that it will have to leave its current warehouse location (at left) by Sept. 30. TransLink budget cuts mean the regional transit authority will no longer be supporting the society financially.

Refinery faces challenges after decision Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Burnaby’s Chevron refinery will face ongoing challenges in the wake of a National Energy Board decision not to grant the company prioritized access to crude from the Kinder Morgan pipeline, but there are no current plans to increase rail shipments. On July 11, the board released its decision, rejecting Chevron’s application for priority destination, which was an attempt to secure a more steady and reliable supply of oil. The refinery has been bringing in oil via truck and railcar to make up for supply shortages. According to Chevron’s Ray Lord, the decision will mean continuing problems for the refinery but no sudden changes in rail shipments of oil. “The NEB’s decision will result in the refinery facing ongoing challenges in securing a reliable, cost-effective supply of crude oil,” Lord said. “Overall, there won’t be any immediate changes, as we’ve been operating under these apportionment conditions since late 2010. In the meantime, we will continue to compete for space on the Trans Mountain pipeline while our existing crude by truck and new crude by rail facilities are being used to secure the supplemental volumes we’ve been receiving since last year by truck and more recently via rail.” Recently, Chevron has been receiving an average 33,000 barrels of oil per day from Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline, but that’s short of the minimum run rate of 40,000 daily barrels, especially considering that the refinery can process up to 55,000 barrels. Roughly a year ago, Chevron began bringing approximately 1,000 barrels of oil per day via rail to Langley and then trucking the shipments in the rest of the way to Burnaby. Chevron also built a new facility at the refinery to receive rail shipments directly, and that went into operation in May, which has helped bring in an additional 6,500 daily barrels. When asked what would happen if Chevron can’t get enough oil, Lord said that as a general practice, Chevron does not comment on specific operating plans or current run rates, but refineries are designed to operate optimally at a certain capacity. “Below that capacity, operational adjustments are made to the various inter-related systems and units in order to accommodate the reduced run rate until such time as normal operation is resumed,” he said. As for safety concerns regarding rail shipments of oil, given the tragic July 6 train derailment and explosion in Lac-Megantic, Que., Lord said the transportation of potentially hazardous commodities has been taking place safely for many years. “Our economy and quality of life depend on those commodities, and preventing incidents from occurring in the first place has always been our priority,” he said. Chevron’s new off-loading rail facility has been designed and engineered to current safety standards, and rail cars are regularly inspected and the facility has been equipped with required containment and fire suppression systems, he added. 6

The Hart of Burnaby: Paul Smolen outside the Hart House restaurant on Deer Lake. Smolen, who has run the popular Burnaby restaurant for 25 years, has been inducted into the B.C. Restaurant Hall of Fame.
Hart House enters hall of fame Stefania Seccia staff reporter
It’s a lovely sunny day when the owner of the Hart House invites us over to a private table outside among the trees, serves coffee and chats about the restaurant’s busy weekend. The restaurant stands inside a 1906 Tudor Revival building, on a picturesque 13-acre estate stretching out to Deer Lake, which has enchanted young couples to host their weddings there, film crews to shoot a movie, and friends to meet up for Sunday brunch. It begins to make sense why the Burnaby hotspot, run by Paul Smolen for the last 25 years, is being inducted into the B.C. Restaurant Hall of Fame this year. “It’s an honour for sure,” Smolen says, while sitting on the small patio overlooking the grass lawn with a large white tent that’ll stick around until October. “Not too many people get inducted into the hall of fame. I’ve been around for awhile, so I guess part of being in this business, if you do good, you get inducted into the hall of fame.” Smolen has been in the business since 1976, as he had two restaurants on Robson Street in downtown Vancouver. The City of Burnaby

approached him and asked him to put in a bid to turn the Hart House into a restaurant, as at the time it was a lot that only got used when a movie crew needed it for filming. After two years of planning and negotiating, Smolen opened the restaurant. “It’s like being out in the country every day,” he said. “You’ve got twoand-a-half acres of lawn and lakes, and I have a dog, I can take the dog out onto the lake.” What has kept the restaurant going is its reputation and customers who keep returning. “We’ve got great customers,” he noted. “We have a fair amount of business customers, we have a fair amount of customers from Greater Vancouver, even all the way from Montreal.” When asked if Smolen would do it all again if he had the chance, he was quick to answer. “Absolutely,” he said. “First of all, I like cooking. I like dealing with people, and it’s challenging. Every day is different.” One day there’s a wedding, another day a big company is setting up fireworks for a staff party, and another day someone is shooting a movie or a commercial, he said. “Last Saturday, we had 228 people Last week’s question Do you plan to visit one of Burnaby’s outdoor pools? YES 47% NO 53% This week’s question Do you donate to the food bank during the summer? Vote at: www.burnabynow.com
in the tent, sit down dinner,” he said. “Plus, the restaurant is open. Then, on Sunday, we opened for lunch plus 250 people for dinner who were going to the VSO (Symphony in the Park) concert, and we had two-and-ahalf hours to feed them and then the restaurant opens.” Hart House employs about 50 people, including 12 cooks in the kitchen. Smolen says he has some staff members who have been there for 20 years. Although Smolen said he doesn’t have a favourite dish, he tends to go for the seafood. “Basically, what we do is local food and try to do a really good job with it,” he said. When it comes down to it, Smolen attributes the restaurant’s success to sticking to the basics. “The last 15 years has really changed,” he said. “You adjust just by osmosis, by being here. It just happens. People’s taste has changed. … You have to do it with feelings.” Smolen is among 11 B.C. restaurateurs, chefs and culinary industry standouts who will be inducted at a Sept. 30 ceremony at the Vancouver Cultural Centre.

Buses: Warehouse rental costly continued from page 1
Retired bus drivers and TransLink employees had worked together to found the society, which now has 100 members. The society had taken on the cost to insure its buses, which is about $4,000 a year, and hopes to keep the society going despite the impending date it has to leave the warehouse. The society’s president and railway superintendent, Dale Laird, said it’s been tricky to get answers from the landlord, as the society is considering a way to stay where it is and keep the buses conveniently together. “It was difficult to meet with the landlord, at least the manager here,” Laird noted, but the society was finally able to get a meeting. “He said to us, ‘you’re a good tenant.’ And I said, ‘OK, can we talk about what the lease might be after TransLink stops covering it?’ He said, ‘The lease hasn’t expired yet, so I won’t talk about it.’” Laird said part of the problem is TransLink may have committed past Sept. 30 to the warehouse space and can’t stop the lease until the landlord finds someone else. “So, I wanted to discuss us, our society, taking over,” he said. “He didn’t want to talk about it because he had signed a lease for a couple years. So there was no worry on his mind.” Larrabee said the society could be part of the solution if they could negotiate terms with the landlord. “We probably can’t pay the $7,000 a month because we’re a non-profit society,” he said. “We can offer charitable tax receipts and things like that. It can be a combination of that. There’s some interesting ways we might be able to find a way to stay here.”

TransLink spokesperson Jiana Ling said the cut was necessary to meet the transit authority’s budget. Ling said TransLink will save $91,000 a year, which is what it costs to support the society for its rent and vehicle insurance. “All the old, historic vehicles registered to TransLink have been donated to the (museum) society to help in their transition,” Ling told the Burnaby NOW. “It’s unfortunate, but it’s mainly due to the financial pressures TransLink is facing, and we can no longer support it anymore.” However, the $7,000 a month’s rent came about because TransLink moved the society off its own property in 2009. “In 2009 we were located in Surrey … in the back of the transit centre, and they wanted that area for the expansion for the Olympics because they were going to get some more buses and increase their fleet,” Larrabee explained. “So TransLink said, ‘We’ll keep something for you, we’ve got this warehouse. Don’t worry about it.’” The move to the South Burnaby warehouse was meant to be temporary. “In the backs of our minds we’re thinking, ‘that’s a lot of money,’” Larrabee said. “We were almost cost-neutral, and all of a sudden we’re not. And it was really their doing to move things around. So we became kind of a casualty in, I guess sort of a mis-planning. So that’s why we are where we are.” Now, Laird and Larrabee said the society has applied for a gaming grant and is looking for any way to avoid the situation where their buses end up on the scrap heap. “Some of our members call it our doomsday plan,” he noted.

Though perhaps it is encouraging that, prior to the election, there was someone close to the Liberals who was aware of dubious communications about the ethnic votes and Burnaby Hospital committee scandals, and was willing to share them with the public, albeit through the opposing party. It really shouldn’t come down to Liberals versus NDP, anyway. No matter the party affiliation, politicians in power should be guided by a desire to govern ethically and fairly. Every MLA should be focused on doing their best
for the province, not simply garnering support whatever way possible for the next election. That would be nice, wouldn’t it? But that’s not always how it works. Hopefully, now that the 2013 election is past, the recently elected MLAs can address what’s important – taking care of the province and its future. And hopefully, there won’t be more of these emails surfacing – not because they’re hidden, but because the people who run our province find they have more important things to do.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ‘Work around’ by B.C. gov’t Dear Editor:
Re: Tax not province’s fault, Letters to the Editor, Burnaby NOW, July 10. I am compelled to respond to the brief letter of July 10 in order to correct the misinformation stated by former city councillor Garth Evans. It is, to say the least, unfortunate that someone who served as a city councillor for three years and sought that office again would offer up his ignorance of the city and province’s role in property taxation for all of your readers to see. And just in case some readers are left with the view that Mr. Evans is correct in his assertions, that this hike in property taxes to light industry is indeed the city’s fault, let me set the record

straight for your readers, and Mr. Evans. The School Act provides that, “In order to raise revenue to finance the provincial funding and debt service expenses of boards, the province may levy a school tax”… and “on or before May 4 each year, the lieutenant-governor in council must determine the rates to be applied” and the cities must collect these taxes on behalf of the province. In 2009, the province amended the School Act to provide, for “2011 and subsequent taxation years, an owner of a class 4 property (major industry) or class 5 property (light industry) is entitled to a credit equal to 60 per cent of the school taxes levied.” In this instance, since the legislation has not been amended, the province has done a bait and switch

that would be the envy of any snake oil salesman. They have, by order of the lieutenant-governor, actually increased the tax rate for class 5 by 30 per cent and then maintained the 60 per cent credit. It would be as if you saw and ad for a 60 per cent off sale, only to find that the base price had been increased by 30 per cent before you arrived at the store. In government parlance, I believe this type of manoeuvre is called a “work around.” They can’t change their own legislation in time, but they do control the tax rates in cabinet, so they will just change the base rate upward and generate $32 million in additional revenue for 2013. And so small businesses have an effective 30 per cent increase in the school tax portion of their property tax, while major industry continues to get the legislated 60 per cent credit. I could point to more government documents that blatantly outline the charade, but I hope your readers will now understand that this increase has nothing to do with the taxation levels set by the city. Only the province is at fault. Colleen Jordan, Burnaby councillor
Global warming not a hoax Dear Editor:
Claims that greenhouse gases do not cause global warming are not only false, but they are deeply malicious and are made with the deliberate intent of confusing people. The specific purpose is to delay action on global warming so that people who are not yet here to speak for themselves will inherit a poisoned Earth. Anybody who cares about the future of their children, and in a more general sense, about other people’s children, needs to inform themselves about these issues so that the motivations of the global warming deniers become clear. An article on www.realclimate.org at bit.ly/NNBfX, discusses the cause-effect relationship between greenhouse gases and global warming in fairly simple terms, but is sophisticated enough to be useful. It takes a certain amount of effort to learn about these issues, but ignorance triumphs when apathy is the order of the day. The corollary to this, of course, is that people who want to have our societies ruled by ignorance put a lot of effort into promoting apathy, and these mechanisms are also well understood.

Poverty: Students suffering continued from page 6
am not a city planner, economist or professional advocate, but the solution does not lie in the creation of vast numbers of municipal or provincially funded low income housing projects in forgotten corners of the city. The cost of such construction is prohibitive, and for years, all three levels of government in this country have done little except wait and look to others to fund it. Perhaps more importantly however are the social consequences of this structural ghettoization. Go to the Downtown Eastside to see what happens when through design, neglect or “market forces,” a city’s most vulnerable population is shunted aside. So what to do? Perhaps I am naïve but to me, the beginning of the answer to our housing crisis starts in aligning existing housing stock with our existing social housing agencies. The City of Burnaby has made a positive first
move towards legalizing secondary suites; the next step in this city and across the province is to give the owners of these tens of thousands of suites incentives to partner with an agency like B.C. Housing. Let landlords charge market rent to B.C. Housing who in turn would have no problem finding subsidized tenants to fill those suites. This partnership would bring secondary suites out of the underground economy, provide landlords peace of mind and even with B.C. Housing paying the difference between the subsidized and market rent, the cost to the taxpayer would be a fraction of the construction of new units. And most importantly, it could be done now. Additionally, I see no reason why developers could also not be enticed to set aside a percentage of non-market units in each of the dozens of towers and condominium projects planned or underway in
the city. On this front, the city can show real leadership by giving corporate or property tax breaks to developers or through selling city land under market value in return for housing stock. By doing so, decent housing options for low income families can be built quickly, at minimal cost and spread seamlessly and invisibly throughout the entire city. Finding creative ways to provide stable housing options for people of all income levels requires bold and creative action. It is the crucial first step in breaking the cycle of poverty, of improving educational outcomes, protecting schools, students and families from the devastating effects of transiency, and creating a society where all, regardless of income, can find a place, contribute and make a difference.

Employees from Kensington Safeway celebrating results of the June campaign.
THANK YOU! YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE Safeway employees, customers and the Canada Safeway Foundation raised
$1,447,769 during the month of June for research in the ﬁght against prostate cancer. Funds raised from the June, 2013 campaign will support scientists and clinicians at the Vancouver Prostate Centre. This team of some of the brightest research minds in Canada has been studying the molecular and cellular events involved in the process whereby cancers become resistant to hormone withdrawal therapy of prostate cancer patients. They have found that a protein called the “androgen receptor” is critical for this type of treatment resistance and that by eliminating this protein they can cause many tumours to die. Recently, they have had an exciting breakthrough discovery of an entirely new class of drugs that can effectively inhibit, and in some cases, eliminate this protein. With the support of Prostate Cancer Canada and Safeway, they can continue to focus exclusively on further developing this promising research. On behalf of the research community, thank you for helping in the ﬁght against prostate cancer.

Animal advocates worried about pet sales Loat dog park near Burnaby Lake, Hutcheon said. “People had been going into the SPCA reporting some domestic rabbits that had been quite friendly down near Winston and Piper (streets),” she said. Hutcheon and some society volunteers found the rabbits but were unsuccessful in catching them. A few days later, another society volunteer was in the area when, Hutcheon said, she was approached by a woman who told her she had seen a man and his dog hunting the rabbits. “She said, ‘There’s a fellow here with a German short-haired pointer,’ and he let his dog get up close to the rabbits, and he let the dog go after the rabbits and basically, the dog got the rabbit, killed the one, and (the man) threw it in the back of his car and took it,” she said. The next day, another group of volunteers from the society went back to the dog park and trapped the surviving rabbit. The rabbit will remain in foster care until a suitable home can be found for the small animal, she added. Hutcheon is hoping someone will recognize this man – driving a green Jeep

MLA questions Libs ‘hush money’ Plan involved Brian Bonney and exMLA Harry Bloy Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Burnaby NDP MLA Kathy Corrigan is raising questions around an apparent plot to silence a woman working for the Liberals who may have had information that was damaging to the premier and the party. “It’s quite shocking. I just find myself shaking my head,” Corrigan said. “This seems to be standard practice with their government.” The controversy stems from correspondence
found in documents connected to Deputy Minister John Dyble’s investigation into the Liberals ethnic vote strategy, where the party was found using government resources for partisan purposes in a plan to target ethnic groups for “quick wins” in the lead-up to the provincial election. The latest development centres around an email from Burnaby’s Brian Bonney outlining a plan for former Burnaby MLA Harry Bloy to offer the woman in question, Sepideh Sarrafpour, a job and possibly money. “Have Harry Bloy meet with her and explain how doing anything would damage the premier and the party. Have him say how
he will try to find her work and get her back involved. … If need be, offer x dollars per month to do nonpublic work up to election (developing her database of potential supporters),” read Bonney’s email, which was forwarded to then-multiculturalism minister John Yap, who resigned after the ethnic vote scandal broke. Corrigan described the offer as “hush money.” “Essentially, it’s an inducement to keep her quiet about whatever information that she had that was damaging to the election chances and the premier,” Corrigan said. “We want to know now if this
is being criminally investigated.” Corrigan also has an email from Bonney to Yap, outlining plans for an Aug. 13 meeting about the multiculturalism strategy, with Sarrafpour and others who were hired as multicultural community liaisons. Corrigan pointed out that Premier Christy Clark said the plan was never implemented, yet the email suggests otherwise. The NOW contacted both Bonney and Bloy for comment, but neither was immediately available. For more on this story, see Jennifer Moreau’s blog at www.burnabynow.com.
City gets financial boost from province The B.C. government is giving the City of Burnaby nearly $1.4 million from the provincial coffers. “Over $1,300,000 will go a long way towards helping Burnaby provide services to residents and support high priority program,” said Burnaby North MLA Richard Lee in a press release. The money comes from the strategic community investment fund, which is intended to help the city provide basic services. The fund also includes money from the traffic fine revenue-sharing program, which is for cities, like Burnaby, that pay for RCMP services. The strategic community investment fund has provided B.C. communities $600 million since 2009. email@example.com

Answer: I grew up listening to country oldies, Hank Snow, Loretta Lynn, so I think there is a definite influence of that in my music, but I have broad influences. I try not to restrict my songwriting to any one particular style.

Q: Where are you at in your Jennifer Moreau music career at the moment? A: My music career has followed the traditional progression of experimentation and finding what works and what doesn’t for me as an artist. My first two albums were true reflections of that – one was a country music album, and the other jazz. Both received international radio play, and my jazz album charted, which was very cool for me. After that, doors started opening for me, and I was invited to open for Imogen Heap, a Grammy award winning artist, and one of my biggest inspirations, at the Commodore ballJason Lang/burnaby now room in Vancouver.

Not just a drummer girl
Burnaby percussionist brings multiple talents to the Orpheum Annex stage She’s a multi-talented percussionist – and a whole lot more. Burnaby’s Lauri Lyster is bringing her talents to the stage in a show at the Orpheum Annex in Vancouver, set for July 25. The Drummer Girl uses not just her percussion skills but her writing, acting and comedic talents. “Costume changes and slide images accompany me as I take you on a journey through my life as a female drummer making a living making … a lot of noise,” Lyster explains in a press release. Lyster, looking for a way to satisfy her yearning to be more than a “sideman,” hit upon the idea of creating a musical revue to showcase her abilities in various styles. The Drummer Girl debuted at the Firehall Arts Centre last year to rave reviews, featuring standards such as Cheek to Cheek and Wild Women Don’t Get The Blues, alongside Lyster’s originals The Road to Utah and The List. She has assembled a lineup of talented musicians to join her onstage: Laurence Mollerup on bass, Brenda Baird on keyboard and vocals, Evan Arntzen on saxophone and clarinet, Kat Wahamaa on vocals and mandolin, and Simon Stribling on saxophone and trumpet. Stribling fronts the New Orleans Alestars and The Hoppin’ Mad Orchestra, projects of which Lyster is

Music: Students learn the biz continued from page 11
model tapping my foot in time. Before long she was responding, not only tapping her feet to the music, but singing and dancing. I started teaching her a really simple piece in 4/4 time on the xylophone, and the first time she played it back in perfect time, I went running down the halls to tell everyone, I was so excited. Q: How does music influence a child’s development and learning? A: There is a fair amount of evidence now that suggests that music’s role in the brain aids in the development of language. The human brain is literally pre-programmed to understand differences in pitch and tone – even babies are able to distinguish differences in these sounds. Music has also been shown to aid in memory development – which is why basic concepts of mathematics and reading are taught through song to very young children. A case in point would be the traditional ABC’s. Q: You also organized music workshops for elementary students at Aubrey. What did you teach them?
A: I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a recording artist, but I had no idea how I would get to that point. Navigating through the music industry today can be an especially daunting task, and I wanted to share with our students what a career in the music biz looks like behind the scenes. I wanted to show the kids how much work and time is involved in developing your craft. I wanted them to see the production aspects as well, so they could understand how a recorded piece of music is made to sound the way it does, and also how to market that piece of music so that people listen to it.
Q: What is the secret to being a rock star? It’s hard work. You need to be prepared to hear ‘no’ a lot, and you need to spend hours of time – and usually a lot of money – investing in your career. I always tell young, aspiring musicians to go bang on the doors of coffee shops. It’s a great place to start developing stage presence. When I was a kid I performed every weekend at a long-term
care facility for seniors, and they were fantastic and so supportive. It doesn’t really matter where you play – just so long as you get yourself out there and start developing a fan base.
Q: How do you deal with rejection and not let it deter you? Music is one of those things. Not everybody is going to like your particular style. The one thing that keeps me going is to remind myself why I’m doing this. I decided to become a musician because it makes me really happy to write songs and play, and I can’t imagine not doing this. I’m lucky in that I’ve had a lot of support and positive feedback from a lot of people, and that has been critical, but I think the main thing is just believing in yourself and having faith in the music you are making. Q: Where can our readers listen to your work? A: They can check out my music at www.melissa endean.ca and they can access a free download of my newest single Breaking My Stride at www.melissa endean.bandcamp.com.

Embrace the aging of your older pets
Pets age and go through life-stage changes just as we do. They compensate for age-related changes like decreased hearing or vision and develop arthritis, just like we do. They may still be by your side at every chance they get and be happy to chase the ball or demand attention when you get home, but subtle aging changes in appearance and disposition are inevitable for all beloved pets. Most dogs and cats reach “old age” between 7-10 years of life. Some pets may be affected by signs of aging earlier than others depending on breed, size, diet and just plain “wear and tear” on the body. As well as we know our pets, it is important to understand that signs of aging are gradual and may go unnoticed over a period of time. Pets are very good at hiding discomfort from arthritis, especially when they are around their loved ones and want to make the most of the time they spend with the family. It is a trait similar to children, where playing for as long as they can with friends, seems to be the big life priority. Many older dogs will actually show signs of stiffness and discomfort on the day following a day at the beach or a day playing at the park. Some dogs may lag behind you towards the end of long walks. Cats and small dogs may be reluctant to jump onto higher surfaces which they might have happily done a few years back. Unexpected irritation or sensitivity to being touched on different parts of the body like the hips or spine can also be an indicator of discomfort related to arthritis. As companion pets age, their metabolism and immune systems slow down as well and they may also experience loss of bladder and bowel control. It is a good idea to make plenty of water and shade available to pets during sunny days and a warm blanket or an insulated dog house is essential to keep them warm during the winter months. A senior diet
that is easy to digest and prevents obesity and organ problems is usually recommended by veterinarians as a pet turns 7- 8 years old. Regular brushing and grooming, teeth brushing and oral care, managing play-time to prevent excessive heating, and bathing during hot days are some of the other essentials of keeping an older pet comfortable. Certain illnesses may occur without obvious change in a pet during old age but are easily dealt with if diagnosed early. It is recommended to have a senior pet examined by a veterinarian at least annually. If your senior pet hasn’t been to a vet for a year, it may be time to get professional advice on how your companion can be best taken care of. Pets’needs are ever-changing and they depend on us to keep them healthy and comfortable. Give your pet lots of attention, affection and embrace the fact that aging is a natural part of life. It is important to help maintain their independence and dignity in their senior years.

Jake is looking for a special home. Sadly, Jake has a serious heart condition. Dogs with this condition will typically live to age four but he could also live a long life, we simply can’t say. For his heart, he will need a responsible owner who takes him on long, slow controlled walks, on a leash at all times. Mental stimulation and a low stress household will bring out the best in Jake as will some patient training. His previous home was outside and Jake lacks socialization so please, no ﬁrst time pet owners. Mature children would be best as he is still a little “mouthy” and he is friendly with other dogs after a slow introduction. Jake is a special boy looking for someone with a huge HEART.

WHEELS Deals Mazda making waves in competitive market David Chao contributor
The family sedan market is ultra-competitive, and it’s dominated by the big-league makers like Toyota and Honda. Mazda never was a significant player, but when Ford sold its shares in the company a few years ago, Mazda was left with even fewer resources than before. Because they don’t have the finances that their larger competitors have, Mazda must use a more focused planning strategy. In the past, they focused on building cars that are sportier and more fun to drive than the mainstream. While Mazda continues to provide a more thrilling driving experience, recently they’ve decided to add one more important element to the car design: push the limits of lightweight construction and allow new, innovative engineering methods to achieve almost hybrid-like fuel consumption. Mazda calls its current philosophy SKYACTIV. SKYACTIV technologies debuted on the 2013 CX-5 CUV with positive reviews. The 2014 Mazda6 receives the full complement of the new design system and more.
Forward thinking has allowed the new Mazda6 to share the same platform as the CX-5, which is already a great car to begin with. This chassis is light, yet very strong and will also serve as a base for the upcoming CX-9. The bodywork shows Mazda’s new Kodo design language. The unique grill and eye-shaped headlights are prominently displayed at the front. Distinctly sculpted
shoulders complement the stretched hood and carry the theme rearward. The sloping roofline leads to a similarly sculpted rear end, highlighted by LED taillights. The interior design is not flashy, but it is well organized and easy on the eyes. It also offers more room than the previous model.
These days, the overriding theme throughout the automotive industry is fuel economy. Unfortunately, hybrid systems are expensive to design and manufacture. Even after that hefty initial investment, most hybrid cars are still sold at a loss by the automakers (though Toyota likely has figured out a way to squeeze every possible penny out of its hybrids). Mazda could not take on that significant risk, so they applied themselves to improving conventional technologies. The SKYACTIV-G is a 2.5-litre, inline four-cylinder engine, running on regular gasoline and boasting a diesel-like 13:1 compression ratio. This results in 184-h.p. and 185 ft.-lbs. of torque, which compared to the old engine are improvements of eight and 11 per cent respectively. Speaking of diesel, Mazda has designed an engine to run on that too. However, it’s been so popular in Japan and Europe that we won’t see one here until later this year when production can catch up with the demand. Mazda approached their transmission redesign with the same mindset as the engine. Forsaking complicated, and therefore expensive dual-clutch transmissions, Mazda
Diverse design: The new Mazda6 follows in the same footsteps as its predecessors, by providing a thrilling driving experience, but the new twist comes from the company pushing the limits on lightweight construction to achieve almost hybrid-like fuel consumption. instead focused on making the best conventional transmissions available. The new manual is as great as the one admired in the MX-5, and the innovative automatic delivers excellent lowspeed feel and quick shifts. Both are lightweight and combine well with the new engine to deliver segment topping gas-only fuel economy. The SKYACTIV thinking applied to the chassis means the suspension was calibrated to provide Mazda’s patented “zoomzoom” driving dynamics, but not at the expense of comfort. The steering response and limited amount of body roll make the Mazda6 the most engaging car to drive in this class.
The theme of improving economy through simpli-
fication continues into the cabin. It is very driver-oriented with all important controls logically placed and highly visible. Most surfaces are soft to the touch, and the attention to detail is evident. The front seats are supportive yet offer plenty of elbow room. Head and knee-room is also adequate, though not super generous in comparison to crossovers that also compete in this segment – they offer better interior packaging than sedans in general. The Mazda6 offers more rear legroom than most in this class. And despite the low roofline, rear headroom is also sufficient for an average adult. While cargo space is actually less than the outgoing model, overall capacity is still quite good and the shape is usable and practical. The new exterior design
makes access a little restricted, although the 60/40 folding rear seats do create a rather large passthrough. On the infotainment front, the Mazda6 doesn’t feature anything terribly innovative. A 5.8-inch colour touchscreen displays the audio, phone and navigation functions.
Ranging in price from $24,495 to $32,195, the Mazda6 is available in three trim levels, GX, GS and GT. Standard equipment on the GX includes heated front seats, 5.8-inch colour touchscreen audio display, Bluetooth, keyless entry, push-button ignition, ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution, dynamic stability control, and traction control system. Additional features, available as options or on
higher trims, include leather trimmed upholstery, eight-way power adjustable driver seat, leatherlike door trim, navigation system, SiriusXM satellite radio, Smart City brake support, forward obstruction warning, radar cruise control and a lane departure warning system.
The bottom line
The SKYACTIV technology provides excellent fuel economy without having to pay the added premium for a hybrid. The styling also means you will stand out from the crowd. While the Mazda6 is good, it’s hard to argue against the established leaders from Honda and Toyota who have longer histories and glowing reputations. In a segment dominated by conservative mainstays, the Mazda6 offers a good-looking, funto-drive alternative.

He’ll need to do some tests to figure out what’s preventing the engine from getting either spark or fuel. TOM: I’m guessing that the heat caused an open circuit in the crank angle sensor, which sits in the hottest part of the engine, near the flywheel. The sensor then sent an erroneous signal to the car’s computer, and that’s what prevented it from starting.

Burnaby working to improve Wi-Fi access Stefania Seccia staff reporter
Burnaby is careening closer to the future of fast access with its recent decision to improve Wi-Fi quality in the city. Burnaby council approved, in principle, to work with thirdparty telecommunication companies to improve public Wi-Fi access at city facilities and rightsof-way. “Existing commercial wireless networks must continue to evolve to meet customer demands for increased coverage and per-
formance,” said Shari Wallace, Burnaby’s chief information officer, in her report to council. “Free wireless access has also become an expectation amongst members of the public when using government facilities.” Staff will work with Shaw to develop a plan and model agreement including a revenue structure for its Wi-Fi proposal. Staff is considering free public access or user-pay access routes. “For cellular networks, staff proposes to work with telecommunication companies to assess the potential impact and implica-
tions of using city rights-of-way and light/utility poles to mount cellular infrastructure,” Wallace said. The review will determine the overall technical feasibility and consider the design, maintenance and cost options. Up to now, the city has installed Wi-Fi at 14 sites, including city hall, libraries, community centres and sports facilities, free of charge to the public. In this case, the city is responding to Shaw’s proposal to install Wi-Fi access for Shaw customers in civic facilities and high
network traffic areas throughout Burnaby. Then staff issued a request for expressions of interest last October, open to all telecommunications companies, but no viable alternative was offered. In April, Shaw updated its proposal to offer access to all citizens, including a free but reduced level of service for non-Shaw customers in terms of total data usage. The non-Shaw customers would be required to log in and provide user data, such as email, mailing address and phone number, according to Wallace.
Gaglardi overpass upgrades OK’d The Gaglardi Way overpass will be bustling with activity as the city is planning rehabilitation, improvements and seismic upgrades to the infrastructure. On July 8, council approved rehabilitation work for Gaglardi overpass improvements at the Brunette River; engineering design services and construction supervision from Associated Engineering Ltd. for the bridge’s structural rehab and seismic retrofit; and awarded a construction contract. A recent inspection of the bridge identified that it “remains functionally adequate” and has an anticipated service life of another 25 years, according to Leon Gous, director of engineering. A report from Gous notes that the rehabilitation work includes deck resurfacing, joint replacements, column repairs and drainage improvements. Total cost for the construction is $1.7 million and includes contract administration, engineering fees, contingencies and taxes. TransLink previously approved the project for 50 per cent of the costs as Gaglardi forms part of the major roads network, according to Gous. The transit authority will be invoiced upon project completion. Council also approved a construction contract of $1.2 million for Kingston Construction Ltd. to complete structural rehabilitation and a seismic retrofit of the bridge. Council also approved an increase from about $105,000 to $305,000 in engineering and construction services for the seismic upgrade. – Stefania Seccia

Many municipalities across Canada either offer free public Wi-Fi or are piloting programs with Shaw, such as Edmonton, Winnipeg, New Westminster and the District of North Vancouver. At the last council meeting, Coun. Sav Dhaliwal said he was concerned about giving preferential treatment to Shaw but was told by city manager Bob Moncur that the city would be open to offers from other providers. Staff will report back to council when the review and terms of the user agreements are complete and “a course of action is defined.”

Man hospitalized in shooting Burnaby RCMP are investigating a shooting that happened early on July 10 near the Sperling SkyTrain station. Police were called to Greenwood and Winston streets shortly after 1 a.m., where they found the victim. The 19-year-old man had been shot several times, said Staff Sgt. Major John Buis. “We don’t believe it was a random act,” he said. “We’re still in the early stages of
the investigation.” According to Buis, the victim is known to police and was conducting “a business transaction” when he was shot a number of times in his arm and body. The victim was taken to hospital and is expected to make a full recovery. Anyone with information is asked to call the Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Junior Bs take first game in opening playoff Tom Berridge
The Burnaby Lakers took the high road in their 13-5 first-round playoff win over the Port Coquitlam Saints at home on Monday. The junior B Lakers jumped out to an early 6-0 lead and led 7-2 after the opening period en route to victory in the first game of the West Coast Junior Lacrosse League best-ofthree series. Burnaby could wrap up the series with a victory in PoCo on Thursday (after NOW deadlines). Cody Gilliam, who ranked among the top goalies in the league this season, was stellar again, backstopping the win with 66 saves in the game. Gilliam, who played every minute for the Lakers this season, led the league in shots on goal with 903 this year. His 0.848 save percentage was the best in the league among starting goalies. Kevan Galte, who posted a league-high 5.07 points per game, led Burnaby with two goals and two assists. Goal-scoring champion Aaron Roberts chipped in with three points, including a pair of goals. Roberts led all league shooters with 47 markers this season. Scott Petursson, who finished fifth in overall
scoring and third in total assists this season, added five more helpers in a sixpoint night against the Saints. Petursson engineered the prettiest goal of the evening, headmanning the ball, while lying prone on the floor to Franco Coporale, who made a quick passs to Roberts for a spectacular finish. Colin Galte also added a pair of tallies. Newcomer Matt Shields got a shorthanded goal and an assist in his junior Laker debut. Callup Aidan Milburn also had one of each. Matt Lee and Brenden Brauer garnered a rare point each for the Lakers. Burnaby outscored PoCo 3-2 in the middle frame to lead 10-4 heading into the final 20 minutes. The B’s also put up three goals to PoCo’s two in the final stanza, despite spending 22 minutes to the Saints’ eight in the penalty box. “For the first time this season we had a full bench. It felt great,” said Burnaby team manager Pam Johnson. If necessary, a Game 3 will be played at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Saturday at 8 p.m. In another first-round series, North Shore upset league champion Delta 8-5 on Tuesday to knot that series at 1-1.

Cannons squeak into PBL playoffs The Vancouver Cannons did just enough to qualify for the post season in the Premier Baseball League. The Cannons placed eighth overall in the premier midget wood-bat league, following a 3-1 win over the Whalley Chiefs at Queen’s Park Stadium on Wednesday. Max Wood supplied the margin of victory, singling home Armand Ewusie and Markus Helyar in the third inning for what proved to be
the game and playoff-clinching win. Connor Noble got the win, allowing just five hits while striking out eight Whalley batters. Vancouver nipped Okanagan for the final playoff spot by a single game. A day earlier, Vancouver took a two-game set from the Victoria Eagles, winning 6-5 and 5-3 at home. In the opener, Tyler Smythe and
Brayden Rysstad hit back-to-back run-scoring singles in the sixth to break a 4-4 deadlock. In the later game, a Smythe double in a two-run sixth brought home Lucas Soper for the game-winning run. The Cannons now face the 39-9 regular season champion Langley Blaze in a best-of-three playdown on Saturday. If necessary, a Game 3 will be played on Sunday.
Burnaby sniper gives Coquitlam something to cheer about Tom Berridge
Burnaby’s Sidney Roy gave the Coquitlam junior girls’ lacrosse team a reason to cheer. The provincial team righthander scored 10 of her team’s 14 total goals at the B.C. provincial girls’ box championships in Coquitlam, where she was also named the tournament MVP. What made it extra special was Coquitlam went without winning a single game in the four-team junior
girls’ division. “I was pretty shocked, I’m not going to lie,” Roy said. After her team’s 6-3 loss to Ridge Meadows in the bronze-medal match, Roy ran off to catch the goldmedal game, where many of her friends and B.C. teammates were playing in an all-New Westminster final. But following the match, won by New West 2 by a 6-0 score, Roy was in disbelief when they called her name as the MVP. “(The New Westminster players)
were pretty happy for me,” Roy said. “I try my best every game for my team. It just happened. You have to shoot the ball to score, and I shoot the ball. “But I’m really excited that I’ll finally be able to play with (the New West girls) and not against them.” Earlier, Roy was selected along with eight New Westminster players and six of her clubmates to Team B.C. for the upcoming Female Junior Lacrosse National Championships

THAT’S IT. THAT’S ALL. THAT’S RIGHT.
In the pool: Burnaby athlete Esli Zuniga competed in the butterfly event at the Special Olympics B.C. Summer Games swim meet in Langley last weekend.
BURNABY SPORTY SHORTS St. Thomas More Collegiate grad Kevin Vigna finished in a tie for 41st place at the B.C. amateur golf championships, which wrapped up at the Copper Point Golf Club in Windermere last Friday. Vigna, who last week lost a three-way playoff at the B.C. junior championships, posted an 11-overpar total 295 on the 6,807yard, par-70 course after finishing the final round with a four-over 74. The incoming Simon Fraser University freshman edged out the Clan’s Michael Belle of Burnaby by four strokes. Burnaby’s Lucas Gatto and New Westminster’s Matt Steinbach both missed the cut. Former Sport B.C. junior boys’ athlete of the year Adam Svensson charged into a share of top spot with a five-under-par 65 in the final round to tie Charlie Hughes of Langley for the overall lead. Svensson and Hughes both finished the 72-hole competition at 12-underpar. Hughes, a 21-year-old University of Washington graduate, drained a 20-foot put on the second playoff hole to win his first B.C. amateur title.
Red River win Three
ball players shared the Red River Cup with Team B.C. at the under-16 football championships in Winnipeg last weekend. B.C., including Notre Dame Juggler players Adam Turrin and Matteo Triggiano, both of Burnaby, and St. Thomas More’s Demarius Henderson, helped B.C. to a 34-21 win over previously unbeaten Winnipeg West in the goldmedal cup final. Henderson, a 6-3 defensive lineman, had a hand in B.C.’s 27-0 first-half push, blocking a punt that was recovered on Winnipeg’s 16-yard line. On the ensuing play, Taylor Pencer of North Delta caught a touchdown pass from tournament all-star North Langley quarterback Jacob Laberge for a 13-0 lead. South Saskatchewan, which beat B.C. 14-0 in the preliminary round, wound up in third place following a 10-7 win over Saskatchewan North. B.C. was 2-2 after roundrobin play, including a 2116 loss to Winnipeg West.
Not long enough
Burnaby South Secondary student Ahmad Nizamani placed ninth in the men’s long jump at the recent Canadian junior national track and field championships in Quebec.
Nizamani, who won the provincial high school title with a leap of 6.95m, jumped 6.40m in the qualifying round.
Hastings Community Little League, which serves the North Burnaby area, received a $150,000 commitment from the Toronto Blue Jays towards the rebuilding of two baseball diamonds at Hastings Community Park field. The grant was made through the Jays Care Field of Dreams program, which invests in the creation of safe youth spaces, according to the media release. Improvements are to include backstop replacements; diamond reconfiguration, including increasing the size of the main diamond; soil and sod replacement and drainage and sprinkler installation. The renovations will allow Hastings to make spaces available to 72 more young ballplayers, while also expanding field time usage for all, according to the release. The upgrades will also allow Hastings to go forward with plans to host the 2016 Canadian Little League championships in 2016. Work is scheduled for completion in 2015.
Girls: Off to nationals in Halifax continued from page 30
in Halifax, beginning July 23. “I’m excited for that next tournament, which is the most important,” said Roy. Local girls will also be taking part at the national bantam and midget championships held in conjunction with the junior
championships in Halifax. Burnaby’s Xenia DuMont, Amie Morrison, Angela Preissl and Carley Spagnuolo will represent B.C. in the midget competition. Tea Cecic was the lone Burnaby player named to the provincial bantam team.

FERGUSON, Norman (Fergie) Will
On July 13th, 2013 Norman Ferguson (Fergie) Will passed away. Fergie is survived and lovingly remembered by Linda Taphorn, his life partner of twelve years, his daughter Elaine Weberg and Son Craig Will, stepson Aaron Amberson (Jenny) and stepdaughter Amber (Lorin) Beer. The combined families provided Fergie with seven grandchildren and three great grandchildren. The little ones gave him such joy in his later years. Fergie was predeceased by his wife Amelia in 1998. Fergie was a successful contractor and renovator and gained the respect of the Burnaby, New West community. His astute business sense led him and his wife to open the Starlite Room in Burnaby that was operated successfully as a family business for almost four decades. Family and friends are invited to attend a memorial service at Columbia-Bowell Chapel, 219 - 6th Street, New Westminster on Monday, July 22, 2013 at 11:00 am. Online book of condolences available at www.kearneyfs.com
