City’s own holiday destination place Village Museum engages visitors in activities, and offers treats for all the senses Alfie Lau

staff reporter

The teardrop Christmas lights are the first sign that the Burnaby Village Museum is the place to be in Burnaby this holiday season. The Illuminations at Heritage Christmas display has been open since Dec. 15 and is running until 9 p.m. each day until Jan. 4 (closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day). According to Nancy Stagg, the museum’s marketing coordinator, one of the biggest events this holiday season occurs along Hill Street. “The seasonal Scavenger Hunt: A Taste of Christmas is all about Christmas food traditions,” said Stagg. “Visitors can pick up their clue sheets in the Stride Studio and turn completed ones in for a prize at the General Store. “Many families take on the challenge of the scavenger hunt. The search for answers takes participants around the village and they learn some fun trivia along the way.” Stagg said people can learn such nuggets as: how are the Brothers Grimm related to gingerbread; or how did a sweet Christmas tradition get embroiled in Prohibition. But it’s not just the scavenger hunt that is drawing people to the museum. Visitors gravitate to the window displays and the warm light shining from within. The windows are full of Christmas ornaments from the 1920s, including Denison’s crepe paper decorations. Entertainers can often be heard and seen either inside or just outside. The bandstand, at the edge of Hill Street, has always been a Heritage Christmas icon with its bright lights and bunting. This year, the bandstand is sharing the spot light with the huge maple tree behind. The maple tree was transformed with wrapped

Wreaths on the doors are historically accurate to the 1920s village time period. The Footlight Theatre performed Sherlock Holmes’ Christmas Goose prior to Christmas and have now made way for the Elwoodettes Marionettes’ production of Die Fledermaus, The Sequel, which is running from Dec. 31 to Jan. 4, with eight separate showtimes from 1 to 6:15 p.m.

On Sunday, Dec. 30, from 1 to 3 p.m., there’s baking in the Love Farmhouse and people are invited to sample the goodies that come straight from the wood stove oven. If eating is your pleasure, the Ice Cream Parlour is running its turkey lunch and turkey dinner promotion right until Jan. 4.

NOTES FROM CITY HALL Burnaby will be looking to Vancouver to managing its marine firefighting services from now on. Burnaby council passed a motion on Dec. 3 to end its agreement with the Port of Vancouver to moor a fire boat in the city, and instead become a customer of the City of Vancouver’s marine firefighting services. Vancouver is proposing an option where it would own and operate two to three fire boats via a longterm agreement with Port Metro Vancouver, and Burnaby would pay a fee for the fire boat services as required. Burnaby’s fire chief, Shaun Redmond, suggested the move in a report to council, based on the infrequent use of Burnaby’s fire boat – responding to approximately three minor incidents per year during the past seven years – and the cost of maintaining it. The fire department also has two small Zodiac boats on hand to respond to minor incidents, the report added.

Fire changes

False alarms will cost Burnaby residents, with changes made to the city’s fire service bylaws. Burnaby council approved the changes at the Dec. 3 council meeting. If the Burnaby Fire Department responds to a third repeated false alarm call within a year, it will result in a $100 fee to the owner of the property. For four or more responses to false alarms within a year, the charge will be $200 per incident.

Lighting up for the critters Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

A certain feathered creature was watching from on high as Michael Gallagher was stringing his home with Christmas lights. It was a barred owl perched on a nearby telephone pole, and the bird served as an inspiration to dedicate his display as a fundraising effort for the Wildlife Rescue Association of B.C. “We have so much wildlife here, and we are lucky to see the geese flying overhead, coyotes, raccoons, skunks, bears and lots and lots of different birds on the feeders in the garden,” Gallagher said in a press release. “I am blessed with a marriage that’s 23 years strong and healthy kids, and I am happy that I am in a position to give back and support Wildlife Rescue.” Gallagher’s home, at 7898 Kentwood St., is not far from Burnaby Lake. The annual Christmas display, featuring 20,000 lights, attracts admirers on foot, by car and even tour bus. This year, Gallagher has added a collection box in hopes that

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Housing plan has good start Dear Editor:

The recent idea by the George Derby Centre Care facility to provide housing on the land it owns is a wonderful idea, and something that should be considered right away. The argument has been made that the housing facility would allow seniors in care to have a sense of community, that it’s their place to live and it’s adjacent to where they receive care. It’s a wonderful idea, but what concerns me about the project is that it’s being billed as market housing, which may make it too expensive for seniors on fixed incomes to live in that complex and provide the community that George Derby is hop-

ing to create. I think the care centre is sincere in its desire to have a location for its care patients to live and create a community with one another, so I hope they’ll give due consideration to the proposal put forward by Mayor Derek Corrigan and the Burnaby city council and opt instead to use the land for subsidized housing, so that cost and income are no barrier to residency for the patients.

the five municipal police forces and the RCMP detachments in Metro Vancouver. There are bound to be efficiency gains from having a merged administration and larger centralized specialized departments. Also, as pointed out in Wally Oppal’s recently released Missing Women Inquiry Report, it is likely that a merged police force would have a better chance of solving major crimes in the region. However, as usual, the devil will be in the details. Before deciding to support such a proposal I want to see the details. What policing structure will be proposed? I would not like to see a takeover by the Vancouver city police, rather there should be an entirely new structure. I don’t think the headquarters should be in Vancouver, but rather closer to the centre of the region where the fastest growth is occurring; perhaps somewhere in Surrey. Also something will have to be done about policing levels and per capita costs,

since some cities such as West Vancouver and New Westminster have much higher policing levels and per capita costs than others such as Burnaby and Coquitlam. Although such a proposal is superficially attractive, a great deal of work must be done on the details before it will be possible to make an informed decision whether to proceed with it. Garth Evans, Burnaby

Grass greener in Abby

Dear Editor:

After leaving Abbotsford decades ago, I again visited my sick friend in Abbotsford General Hospital last weekend. I was delighted to see their new hospital, and wished we could have the same in Burnaby. I believe it is a very expensive project, but with almost $600 million in reserve by the city council, we can afford it with the co-operation of the federal and the provincial government. It is surely a better investment than giving ‘Band-Aid’ solutions to our decaying hospital.

already between $15 million to $25 million. That shortfall includes such items as $4.2 million for salary and benefits increases, $3.5 million for an increase in pension plan payments for teachers and more than $7 million in potential “holdback funds” for next year. While school boards routinely scream about underfunding every year and yet still seem to miraculously balance their budget nevertheless, the additional task of having to find money for wage increases may be the breaking point for a number of them. Evidence of how serious a problem this new demand poses for trustees is the fact that the chair of the employers’ bargaining group has also written to the education minister, telling him it is impossible for boards to meet his call to find new savings. Melanie Joy, chair of the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association,

The City of Burnaby jumped into 2012 ready to tackle a number of projects and issues in the coming year. And, like many of us, the city is finishing off the year with a few things left on its To Do List. Below are some of the items that fell to the wayside during a very busy year for Burnaby council and staff: We have heard about the pools, the public art, the extra staff and more as the city planned and worked on the new Edmonds centre during the past few years. But when will we have a chance to take a dip, or a Pilates class, there? The completion date has been moved forward to February 2013, according to a report from director of parks recreation and cultural services, Dave Ellenwood, who has said in past interviews that an opening date is likely to be about four to six weeks after completion. So the centre should be up and running before the warm weather hits – if all goes according to plan. Some media outlets jumped the gun and stated the City of Burnaby had signed on to a regional shark fin ban along with Vancouver and Richmond this past year. Not so, though plenty of other municipalities in the Lower Mainland have instituted bans The shark fin since Burnaby started considersoup issue will ing one in July. However, Mayor Derek continue to simCorrigan says the city will now mer on the back- have to look at the potential burner into the legal ramifications, following a ruling by an Ontario Superior new year. Court judge on Nov. 30, overturning the City of Toronto’s ban. So the shark fin soup issue will continue to simmer on the backburner into the new year. The City of Burnaby is also taking a look at its tree bylaw after multiple residents complained the current bylaw isn’t effectively protecting city trees. Burnaby’s tree bylaw from 1996 restricts property owners from cutting down large trees (larger than 20.3 centimetres in diameter) three months prior to applying for a demolition permit for a building on a property, and one year afterward. Large trees that residents cut down are supposed to be replaced with a new tree, according to the bylaw, though the replacement of trees isn’t always a 1:1 ratio. A delegation spoke to council about their concerns in June 2011, and a tree bylaw review was set for the following fall and spring. However, the process stalled due to staff changes at city hall and a big increase in building permit applications, according to Corrigan. But earlier this month, Corrigan said he and city councillors were attending a tree bylaw workshop as part of the review process, so the issue is moving ahead, slowly but surely. The city is also reviewing its pet bylaw and is considering issues such as its breed-specific legislation. The city has been cautious about changing its animal control bylaw, which currently has restrictions on “vicious dogs.” Burnaby’s bylaw from 1991 states that a vicious dog is defined as one that has attacked a person or animal without provocation, or “a Staffordshire bull terrier, an American pit bull terrier and any dog generally recognized as a pit bull or pit bull terrier and includes a dog of mixed breed with predominant pit bull or pit bull terrier characteristics.” Pit bull owners are fighting the bylaw, saying it unfairly penalizes good dog owners and is based on alarmist media reports about the breed. City staff is working on the animal control bylaw now, Corrigan said, so he expects it will be brought to council in the coming year.

JOHN’S SKI WAREHOUSE

Mom and pop ski shop closes after 40 years Marelle Reid staff reporter

It’s been known for decades as the place to get a good deal on ski jackets and winter wear. John’s Ski Warehouse, at 3594 E. Hastings St., was started 40 years ago by John Carr, an avid skier and long-time Burnaby resident. From name brands like Taiga and Gortex, to top quality cycling raincoats and ski pants, the store stocked items from one or two seasons past at dramatically lowered prices. This past spring, Carr passed away, leaving the business to his sister Goldie Carr and his daughter, Shasta Benaim, who are closing the doors for the last time next week and are putting everything on sale to clear the merchandise. Carr founded the business after selling his halfshare of the well-known Comor ski equipment and clothing outlet he had cofounded. He wanted to focus on clothing only, and provide for those who might not be able to afford the high-end gear at top prices. Never in competition with Comor, Carr sent customers to his previous business for skis and other equipment, and Comor reciprocated by directing some of their customers to him for clothing at familyfriendly prices. Goldie remembers her brother as a good businessman, not for his impressive annual sales, but for his ability to connect with the community. One year, a young newspaper carrier frequented the store to admire a winter jacket he couldn’t afford. Carr saw the five-dollar bills in the boy’s hand one day and informed him the coat had just gone on sale, and that the cash the boy had would be more than enough to cover the cost. “My brother also had a newspaper route when he was young, so he understood that people just might not have the money,” Goldie said. “So the young boy walked away with the jacket and a couple of bucks still in his pocket, and my brother felt the better for it.”

It wasn’t just among the local community that Carr’s reputation spread. Goldie said the store’s name was widespread, as Carr often travelled to the North Shore and to Whistler to hit the slopes and meet other skiers. “They would say, ‘Yeah, if you want good ski clothing, come to John’s Ski Warehouse because you can’t get a better deal. The Bay or Eaton’s will have the same jacket for a hundred bucks more.’ And for many years, my brother didn’t advertise all that much because it was all word of mouth,” she said. Just last weekend, when Goldie was managing the till, an older man came in and told her he had bought every one of his winter jackets at John’s Ski Warehouse and wanted to get two this month, since he’d heard the store will soon be closing for good. For Carr’s family, his passing has been difficult, but never more so than now, at Christmas, and just before the business becomes only a family memory. “It’s hard,” Goldie said. “I was OK till now, but now that it’s getting closer, you know, it’s like a family history, and now it’s all gone.” John’s Ski Warehouse is holding its final closing out sale until Dec. 31; open every day except Christmas Day, Dec. 25. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Hours will be flexible, if people show up close to closing time, Goldie said. All items in the store will be on sale for between 40 and 80 per cent off. So far, the sale has been going well, according to Carr’s daughter, Shasta Benaim. After posting a notice on the online forum Reddit, many people have been in to the store to find the last of the good deals, she said. “A bunch of people came in and they were really excited about the stuff we have, so I just wanted to say a thank you to that community.” mreid@burnabynow.com

Homeless folks head to shelters

To do: Burnaby city hall had its plate full for 2012 continued from page 8

The city has also been approached about banning animal sales at pet stores, but Corrigan said last fall that the city had too much on its plate to review a possible ban at the time. Despite the backlog of bylaw work, the City of Burnaby did manage to approve a wide array of development plans and permits in the city. After application approvals stalled during the summer, things got back to normal by the fall, according to the city’s planning and building director Lou Pelletier. Overall, the city saw a 2.5 per cent increase in building permits this year, Corrigan said at the beginning of December.

Jennifer Moreau

City hall suffered a number of staff losses during the past year, including deputy city manager Rick Earle and director of planning and building Basil Luksun last spring. Kim Munro, director of human resources, also retired this year. Lambert Chu, the former director of engineering, is now a deputy city manager, alongside Chad Turpin. Barry Davis, deputy director of engineering, is now acting director of the department, and Pat Tennant, who was the assistant ERP program manager, is now acting director of human resources. As for the future of Burnaby? It looks like there’ll be plenty of issues for the city to tackle in 2013 – be it animal, tree, or staffrelated.

staff reporter

As word spreads that local extreme weather shelters are opening this month, Burnaby and New Westminster homeless people are starting to filter in from the cold. “There’s been a total of 40 people in New Westminster in the six days we’ve been operating so far, from Dec. 8 to (Dec. 20),” said Dave Suttie from Lookout Emergency Aid Society, which runs extreme weather shelters in Burnaby and New Westminster. Numbers in Burnaby have been lower: only eight people showed up in December, during the five nights the shelter was open. “Burnaby is mixed because its temperatures are a bit higher,” Suttie said. “New Westminster, we’ve been running straight through because it’s been zero or sub zero.” The shelters are not open all the time, Suttie explained. “There’s gaps in between because we have to make the assessment every day as to what the call’s going to be. There are a variety of factors we

take into consideration. It’s not just zero or subzero temperatures, it’s extreme weather,” he said. According to Suttie, extreme weather is when it’s wet and cold enough to be a threat to human health. Temperatures hitting zero is a factor, but that doesn’t pose a threat if it’s dry, he said. The call to open the shelters is on a day-to-day basis, he added. “It’s not something where we are going to block-book the whole thing, because if there’s a fluctuation in temperature and things warm up or dry up, and we’ve already pre-called a block of days, we have to pay for the staffing,” he said. To get the message out to homeless people that the shelters are open, Lookout issues alerts, where emails and phone calls go out to police and a variety of agencies that have contact with homeless people. No one is turned away from the extreme weather shelters. “If people are mentally ill and have pets and shopping carts, if they are at risk of harm, we will take them. We don’t turn people away,” he said. “If people’s health and safety are at risk. We take them. The rest doesn’t matter.”

Christmas past: Burnaby celebrates the season ON MY BEAT

T

Christina Myers

here’s no time quite like Christmas for a little reminiscing. As heirloom decorations are put on display and family traditions are revived for another year, it’s easy to think back through the family tree to a time long past. The NOW did a little looking back this year, too – into the Burnaby city archives. A variety of snapshots from Christmas past

in the city reveal unique moments that look not too different from Christmas present. And this snippet, taken from the pages of the Daily Columbian on Dec. 28, 1895, takes us even further back: “A very enjoyable evening was spent on Christmas Eve, at the residence of John King, Cumberland Road, consisting of a very prettily decorated Christmas tree, (the good things on which were contributed by Mesdames Kin and Jackson), songs and recitations. The ladies contributed greatly to the enjoyment of the evening with their songs well sung. We have a walking song

book in the shape of one of the young bachelors, who is quite an entertainment in himself. We also have a couple of good violinists, who did their best towards making merry by their good selections and accompaniments. The children were highly amused with Santa Claus, until some of them sank into the arms of Morpheus. The fun broke up at midnight, when the parents packed the sleeping beauties home, along with their bundles of toys, etc.” Songs, toys, decorations, trees, family and friends – the holidays of yesteryear City of Burnaby archives, photo ID 370-171/burnaby now were not so very different from those of 2012. Under the tree: Sisters Carol and Valeria Shantz, aged eight and three, in the cmyers@burnabynow.com living room of their Malvern Avenue home, Christmas 1958.

City’s RCMP ‘Fuzz’ team wins fundraising effort Alfie Lau

staff reporter

A team of Burnaby RCMP officers raised almost $21,000 and beat other local RCMP detachments in their annual Great Canadian Police Challenge. Const. Greg Carwithen led the charge for the Burnaby Fuzz team, personally raising $15,722 toward greater awareness and funds for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer. The team raised a total

of $20,953. Movember challenges men to change their appearance by growing a moustache. The moustache becomes the ribbon for men’s health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for prostate cancer. Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

Readers’ best recipes

We asked a collection of people in Burnaby – including representatives from the police, the sport community and local service agencies – to share some of their favourite recipes for the holidays. Below are just a few of the submissions; check out earlier editions of the NOW this month for previously published recipes: ◆

Susan Kirkby

From Susan Kirkby, vice-president of the Burnaby Minor Lacrosse Association Rather than bake three pies this is the answer! Cheesecake, pumpkin and pecan pie all in one. It takes a lot more time if you make your own pie crust, I tend to buy mine at Costco ready made.

Cheesecake Pumpkin Pecan Pie Cheesecake Layer 8 oz cream cheese, softened 1/4 cup sugar 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1 egg Pumpkin Pie Layer 1 2/3 cups unsweetened fresh or canned pumpkin puree (If using canned, strain in a fine mesh sieve for several hours to overnight, covered, in the fridge) 1 cup heavy cream (you can use evaporated milk, if you prefer) 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar 1/4 cup granulated sugar 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice 2 eggs, lightly beaten Pecan Pie Topping 1 cup mix of whole and coarsely chopped pecans 1/4 cup granulated sugar 1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar 1/3 cup light or dark corn syrup 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 eggs beaten 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons melted butter Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in 1/4 cup sugar, then add vanilla and 1 egg. Beat mixture until smooth. Pour the cream cheese mixture into the bottom of the par baked pie shell, spread evenly, then freeze for about 15 to 20

minutes. In the meantime, in a large bowl, combine pumpkin puree, heavy cream, the two lightly beaten eggs, vanilla extract, sugar, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice and salt. Mix thoroughly until uniform. Remove the pie shell with cream cheese from the freezer and pour the pumpkin mixture on top of it. Freeze for 15 to 20 minutes. Combine the eggs, sugars, melted butter, corn syrup, vanilla extraxt and salt in a bowl. Stir in pecans. Remove pie from freezer and carefully spoon the pecan layer over the pumpkin layer. Place pie on the middle rack of your preheated oven. Cover edges of crust with aluminum foil or a pie crust shield, if browning too quickly, but you will eventually have to cover it to prevent excess browning some time toward the end. Keep checking every 20 minutes. Bake in 350 degree F oven for about 60 to 75 minutes. It really depends on your oven. In one oven I used, it took 75 minutes, in another, 60 – so keep checking for it to be sturdy, but still a tad jiggly in the middle. The the pecan pie topping should be dark and bubbling a bit. Important: let cool at room temperature, then refrigerate for several hours before slicing and serving. Drizzle with melted chocolate or chocolate ganache for extra decadence!

From Manny Sobral, head coach of the North Burnaby Boxing Club Spanish Flan 1 1/4 cups of sugar, divided into 2 cups (3/4 cup, 1/2 cup) 1 lemon 2 cups of milk Manny Sobral 6 eggs 1 egg yolk Peach halves, whipped cream and mint to decorate Put 3/4 cup of the sugar in a heavy skillet over moderate heat. Stir with a wooden spoon and continue heating until sugar melts and turns a golden brown. Meanwhile, put an eight-cup soufflé dish or round ovenproof dish in oven when sugar is nearly caramelized. When sugar is ready, remove dish from oven and pour sugar into it. Immediately tip dish so caramel coats bottom and some of sides. Set aside. Using sharp vegetable knife, cut off thin peel, not pith, from lemon. Scald milk and lemon peel. Remove peel. Holiday Page 15

Helping children:From right,Reg Seguin,Wally Govett,Doreen Peniuk,Gerry Pelletier and Lisa Rosales,a fund development officer with the B.C.Family Resources Society.The Elks recently donated $3,500 to the non-profit group to help children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Photo contributed:Burnaby NOW

he Burnaby Elks Lodge #497 presented a $3,500 cheque to the B.C. Family Hearing Resource Society at their annual general meeting on Nov. 28. The donation will go towards programs for children with deafness or hearing loss in British Columbia. “(The B.C. Family Hearing Resource Society) is the largest service provider to children aged five and under with deafness and hearing loss in the province,” said executive director Noreen Simmons in a press release. “The Burnaby Elks’ commitment to helping children is truly inspiring. This year, their generous donation will go towards our outreach program, to provide services to families in remote areas of the province.” For the past 25 years, the society has been providing outreach services, including sending specially trained

staff to under-serviced areas of the province for face-to-face consultation with families and individual consultation sessions via webcam. The society also offers workshop and training opportunities for community service providers in smaller communities in the province. “We are proud to support (the society),” says Burnaby Elks President Reg Seguin. “We support many children’s charities, but have a special affinity for children with deafness and hearing loss. We are confident that the funds we donate to BCFHRS will benefit many children in the province.” For more information about programs at the society or to make a donation to the outreach services, contact Lisa Rosales at 604-584-2827.

Century House gearing up for new year

N

Century House member Joan Campbell painting a replica of Van Gogh’s Cafe Terrace at Night. Century House is hosting a variety of classes for the new year. Seniors can learn how to paint, dance,speak Spanish and work an iPad. Jason Lang:Burnaby NOW

ew Westminster’s Century House is hosting a series of classes for seniors in the new year,and whether it’s dance,Spanish, art or computers,there is a variety of programs with something for everyone. Seniors are becoming more tech savvy,and the 2013 crop of classes reflects that trend. “A lot of them are getting iPads from their children or iPhones,and they’re getting Skyping with their families,”said Erika Nikula,an administrative assistant at Century House. Tech classes focus on

computer basics,social media, laptops and mobile devices. Participants learn how to share photos and download e-books,for instance,and there are extra devices available for use at Century House. Another popular series,also offered this new year,is the ukulele classes.Thanks to the Langley Ukulele Ensemble, a group of ukulele players who visit Century house at Christmas,the small, stringed instrument has become popular among Century House regulars. By taking classes at Century

House,you’re going out and meeting people,connecting with peers and getting healthy,Nikula said. “And you’re having fun hopefully,”she added. Century House was opened in 1958 and is one of the longest running seniors centres in Canada.The house is located at 620 Eighth St.in New Westminster. To see the full schedule of classes,go to www. centuryhouseassociation. com,click on About Us and then Winter Warm Up Brochure,or call 604-5191066 for more information.

SAFETY

Beware seasonal fire dangers in the home Marelle Reid staff reporter

No one expects the Christmas tree to explode. But that’s exactly what can happen if you’re not careful, says Dan Kilpatrick, Burnaby’s chief fire prevention officer. On New Year’s Day, not long ago, Kilpatrick and his crew were called out to a house fire that had started in the kitchen. The resident had put a pot of water on to boil and then gone to the front of the house to take down her Christmas tree decorations. She’d then dragged the tree back through the kitchen to take it outside when a branch touched the red-hot element on the stove and the tree immediately caught fire. “When they get dry, all those dead needles, they literally just burst into flame,” Kilpatrick said, noting the first week of January is when firefighters expect an increase in calls for house fires because of combusting Christmas trees. To prevent this type of accident, it’s essential to keep trees watered, he said. The first step is to check a tree before buying it to make sure it’s still fresh and that the needles are not dry and falling off.

Next, cut the base on a slight diagonal to allow the tree to more easily draw water up the trunk. Once home, the tree should be placed in a bucket of water. “That’s the big secret,” Kilpatrick said. “Keep it watered and don’t ever let

it dry out. Once the bottom of the stem dries out it’ll seal over with sap and you won’t get the water (travelling) up.” Even artificial trees can be dangerous if they have a metal base that could conduct electricity and cause a shock, he noted.

Besides Christmas trees, Kilpatrick said the two other main causes of fires at this time of year are candles and electric light cords that are cracked or worn, which can spark a fire. Kilpatrick said electrical lights should be turned off when no one is home

or when people are going to bed. “People go, ‘Oh, well it looks nice to have the lights on at night.’ Well, it’s a danger,” he said. Besides calls for house fires, firefighters are also most commonly called out for injuries sustained by

Labour fed offers ESL help Immigrants can access ESL classes starting in January Marelle Reid staff reporter

In an effort to help immigrants in the provincial workforce, the B.C. Federation of Labour is offering a free ESL course starting in January. The evening workshops are open to workers throughout the Lower Mainland, including Burnaby and New Westminster, who want to improve their English speaking skills while learning about workers’ rights and workplace health and safety. Topics will include workplace violence, preventing back injuries, workplace chemicals (WHMIS) and identification of hazards. This is the sixth year the program has been offered in the Lower Mainland

and it is a popular resource for immigrant workers, according to the B.C. Federation of Labour. Upon completion, participants will receive a certificate and an invitation to a graduation dinner. All levels of English are welcome, but participants must either be Canadian citizens or residents working or intending to work in B.C. sometime in the near future. The course runs from 5:45 to 7:45 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays for 12 weeks, starting Jan. 15, at #200-5118 Joyce St. (at the Joyce SkyTrain station in Vancouver). This program is coordinated and run by the Health & Safety Centre, a division of the B.C. Federation of Labour, with funding from the B.C. Workers’ Compensation Board (WorkSafe B.C.) For more information, or to register for the program, visit www.healthandsafe tybc.ca/esl.

This was a wooden pyramid of shelves which held pastries, candies and candles. It was often wrapped in flexible young evergreen boughs. Eventually, the Christian symbol, the apple-carrying Paradise Tree and the evergreenwrapped pyramid of decorations and goodies all merged into something similar to the Christmas tree we know today. In Germany, this Christmas tree was called the Christbaum and it

was very small but before too long larger ones were chosen that were better able to carry edibles, candles and decorations. The Christmas tree tradition arrived in England with Charlotte, the German wife of King George III, but it became popularized later by Prince Albert, the consort of Queen Victoria who brought in fir trees every Christmas from his native Germany. His family Christmas tree is said to have been lit with candles and decor-

ated with sweet treats and ribbons with gifts piled at the base. Meanwhile, he made gifts of Christmas trees to military barracks, schools and hospitals all over Britain. By the 1850s, German artisans were beginning to create glass ornaments: icicles and balls. Electric lights were introduced in the late 19th century but took many years to become commonplace. Immigrants carried the Christmas tree tradition

to North America. Most of the early New World Christmas trees were very small and hung from rafters or were placed on tabletops. The pioneers decorated them with simple foods from their everyday life such as strings of cranberries or raisins, gingerbread, popcorn and dried apples. All were eaten when the tree was taken down. Here’s wishing you all a very merry Christmas and many blessings in the New Year.

Taste: Village flavours continued from page 23

“There’s bread, there’s celery, there’s roasted onions, mushrooms, sage, pepper, salt and lots of butter,” said Dossa. “The butter, that makes it really flavourful.” Can’t argue with that sentiment, as Dossa has to sneak away back to the kitchen to help Tam. That gives us time to finish off our shortbread and mincemeat and Dossa comes back with some pumpkin pie for us to try. The pumpkin pie is one of the most popular desserts on offer at the eatery and you can have pumpkin pie and coffee for only $3.95 if you have the coupon that accompanies the turkey dinner coupon. What makes the meal even better is that once you’re done with dessert, you can amble over to the ice cream station and order

a perfect nightcap. There’s often a dozen flavours to choose from, with the choices ranging from maple nut to wildberry yogurt to chocolate, vanilla, cookies and cream, butterscotch marble, mango or espresso flake. There are no words to describe how divine ice cream is at the end of a meal, but that’s what makes the Ice Cream Parlour at the Burnaby Village Museum such a treat. The Ice Cream Parlour at Burnaby Village Museum is open from noon to 9 p.m. during the holiday season. It’s closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and the last day for the season is Friday, Jan. 4. For more information, go to www. burnabyvillagemuseum.ca. www.twitter.com/ AlfieLau

WHEELS Deals Another A+ for iconic Porsche David Chao

NOW contributor

There is no other car as iconic as the 911. It’s on every automotive enthusiast’s list of “top things to buy before you die.” It wins awards, it turns heads, it makes everyone jealous – what else can you ask for? The 911 didn’t get to this status just by being a B+ car – it got here because it gets A+ in almost every possible performance category year after year, generation after generation. Since its inception in 1948, the 911’s appearance has evolved gracefully. You can still drive it fast and furious – unsurprising considering Porsche is the most successful brand in motor sport. As we said, there’s little surprises coming from the new package. However, people buy Porsches for this very reason and this has resulted in a very loyal fan base. The 911 is a symbol of German engineering. Positioning the engine behind the rear wheels, which is where the 911’s engine belongs, makes achieving a balanced weight distribution an almost impossible task. Sports car designers agonize over where each ounce sits within the chassis because a balanced car corners easier and faster. Early 911s, carrying the bulk of their weight on the rear axle, required a delicate dance on the pedals, nimble hand manoeuvres and a mouthful of prayers to go around a corner fast. But Porsche refused to give up on the idea and continuously tinkered with the chassis to eventually produce a car that feels neutral to the driver regardless of the body bias. While playing with the mechanicals, the designers didn’t ignore the car’s more mundane elements. Over the years, the Carrera has become more comfortable and easier to drive in the real world. It truly has become a sports car

you can use every day. 911 is and will always be the benchmark by which other brands measure themselves.

Design

Contributed/ burnaby now

The 911 is one of very few cars whose design has remained a timeless classic. However, if we are to nit-pick the details, the 2012 Carrera has a wider stance than the outgoing model. This means the windscreen is longer and a little less steeply raked and the side mirrors are mounted further out on the doors. Also, the front gills are wider and sharper, the headlamps are ever so slightly rounder, and the taillamps are narrower and longer. But let’s be honest, these changes are subtle and this model is unquestionably the Porsche icon. Another hallmark of this icon has been its cabin. Unlike more ostentatious exotic cars, entering the 911 never required performing a contortionist act. It also provided enough cargo space to allow you to enjoy a scenic drive on a weekend excursion. To further encourage you to use your Carrera daily, the new interior is the most user-frendly yet. And while traditional Porsche elements remain, such as the left-mounted key ignition and fivegauge instrument panel, the cabin feels very modern and contemporary. Sitting in a 911 has never been an “econobox” experience but this version is the most luxurious version we’ve seen. The new 911 currently is available in eight trim levels, the Carrera and Carrera S, the Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S, with cabriolet versions for each of those models. All models are available with a seven-speed manual transmission or the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission.

Porsche: Tradition of excellence continues for 2012 model of classic 911 continued from page 26

Performance

As previously mentioned, fans of Porsche have developed certain expectations of the brand’s flagship and this new update meets those expectations. The base 3.4-litre flat-six produces 350-hp, which is five more than before, and 287 ft-lbs of torque to reach 289 km/h. 0 - 100 km/h happens in 4.8 seconds thanks to the industry’s first seven-speed manual gear-box … the PDK equipped models will reach the same speed in mere 4.6 seconds or 4.4 seconds in Sport Chrono trim. Alternatively, if you want your daily driver to venture even further into super car territory, the Carrera S sees its displacement grow to 3.8-litres putting out 400-hp, 15 more than its predecessor, and 325 ft-lbs of torque. The S can hit 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds with a manual transmission or in 4.3 seconds with the automatic. With the push of a button, you can alter various things: the response of the throttle and steering, when gear shifts happen, the feel of the suspension, and even how audible the exhaust is. You also have control over the all new Auto Start/Stop system which shuts the engine off if the car is stopped – for example at a stop light. You can manually override this feature but the system restarts the engine quickly enough for you to get off the line to keep most other cars in their place. These controls allow you to ensure that this 911 will comfortably handle any road and still obtain a reasonable fuel efficiency for such a high-end sports car.

Environment

The new cabin reveals a whole new level of refinement. The Carrera offers so much more upscale features and luxurious items that it will even embarrass luxury sedans. The interior is inspired by the Carrera GT supercar and is sort of a scaled down version of the Panamera, most notably the cascading centre stack. Porsche, never one to follow convention, choose to forsake a dial selector to access different features used by some of its competitors and instead opted for a button for everything. Those who regularly operate a smartphone will feel at ease. This progressive feeling is continued throughout the cabin. Some minor changes include the replacement of the manual hand brake lever by an electronically activated parking brake, and the gear selector is now located higher upon the centre stack. This somewhat diminishes spaciousness, but headroom is actually increased by the repackaging of the sunroof. While this cabin may be a departure from the interiors of old, it is a welcome advancement.

Features

The new 911 Carrera starts at $93,700 and the S version at $110,000, with their cabriolet variants beginning at $106,900 and $123,200, respectively. The all-wheel-drive models enter at $103,900 for the Carrera 4 and $120,500 for the 4S, again with the convertibles at $117,400 and $134,100, respectively. Standard features on the base model Carrera include intelligent light-

weight construction in aluminium/steel-composite; Enhanced Porsche Stability Management with ABS, ASR, ABD, MSR and additional brake functions; auto start-stop-function; on-board diagnostics for monitoring emission control system; power-assisted steering with variable steering ratio; a tire pressure monitoring system; an electric parking brake; an auto-deploying rear spoiler; an instrument cluster with

central rev counter and 4.8 inch TFT VGA display with on-board computer; gear-level display in rev counter; a sound system with nine loudspeakers and a total output of 235 watt; a CD storage box in the glove compartment; PCM 3.1, including extended DVD navigation module, HomeLink, and Bluetooth; a Porsche Side Impact Protection system with side impact protection in the doors, thorax airbag in the

side bolsters of the front seats, and head airbags in the door trims for driver and front passenger.

Thumbs up

The 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera brings a noticeably more upscale interior and fit-and-finish. The chassis and steering changes make it equally comfortable on the track as it is on the road. It’s still the best sports car around.

Thumbs down

Through tireless engineering, Porsche has created a near flawless sports car but there are some minor items that may annoy nonGerman sports car owners, such as ergonomics.

The bottom line

This generation of 911 is the next evolution of the historic brand and is the best sports car in the world.

Thunder made ringette history in Burnaby Tom Berridge

sports editor

The Lower Mainland Thunder went from an expansion National Ringette League club to national champions in April, making it the Burnaby NOW’s sports story of the year. Run by the league after private ownership dried up the season before, but bankrolled by the players themselves, the seventhranked Thunder knocked off the top four clubs in the country, including three from back east in a two-day span, to win the firstever Canadian ringette title in any division for B.C. The host Thunder handed Eastern conference regular season champion Montreal Mission just its third loss of the year, upsetting the high-scoring Quebec club 7-2 in the gold medal final at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre. First team all-star forward Salla Kyhala was the tournament MVP, scoring four goals in the final to lead the Lower Mainland team to its history-making win. “This is where I saw the team going,” said Kyhala, who had nine goals and two assists in her last three games. “Our defence scored, other people scored – I saw us as a team that we could do this. I saw us going this way – we can do this.” Jennifer Wakefield joined tournament high-scorer Kyhala and defender Melanie Thomas on the NRL tournament first team. Wakefield, who enjoyed two of her nine previous national ringette titles with the Eastern runner-up Cambridge Turbos, helped the Thunder defeat her former club 6-

play.” But perhaps a more perfect ending was orchestrated by for Burnaby’s Julia Scigliano, the longest-serving player on the Lower Mainland team. Scigliano keyed the Thunder victory in the championship final with the game-opening goal from

a shot in front that beat Montreal keeper Claudia Jetté high to the glove side at 4:23 of the first period. “Everything is so unbelievable right now. I’m the only player from Burnaby. It’s so special to all of us. Seeing everyone’s faces – everyone up there (in the stands) is so excited – everyone I grew up with in Burnaby was watching. To score that first goal, I will never forget that.”

The Burnaby Winter Club scored a Western Canadian bantam AAA double, winning the region title following a 3-0 victory over Alberta champion South Side Athletic Club in April. Mathew Barzal, who scored a goal into the empty net, was named the Burnaby’s game star. Western Canada tournament scoring leader Ty Ronning also pulled off some history of his own, matching the exploits of his father, Cliff, a former 18year veteran of the NHL. Both Ty and Cliff were the top scorers and named most sportsmanlike players following their respective midget championships – a most unlikely double. Cliff was a member of the 1983 Air Canada Cup-winning team – B.C.’s first national midget hockey title. BWC was unbeaten at the Westerns. Earlier, the winter club won the B.C. Tier 1 provincial championships in Kamloops with a 6-5 victory over the Cloverdale Colts. The regular season champion winter club Bruins allowed the Colts to claw back leads of 3-0 and 5-3 before Barzal, the first overall WHL bantam pick, tallied the game-winner. The victory followed an earlier 5-3 loss to Cloverdale in round-robin play at the provincials. The Colts, runner-up finishers to the Bruins in the Tier 1 regular season, defeated the winter club 62 in the earlier Pacific Coast playoff final. Cloverdale also beat Burnaby 3-1 before going on to win the John Reid memorial AAA tournament in St. Albert, Alta. in January. “It doesn’t really matter, those other ones (losses),” said head coach John Batchelor. “It’s the one at the end that matters.”

HIGH SCHOOL TEAM OF THE YEAR

Fourth at provincials caps a five-year dynasty for Moscrop Tom Berridge sports editor

The Moscrop Panthers became the first Burnaby school to make it to the final four at the B.C. high school AAA boys’ volleyball championships. The Panthers finished in fourth place at the provincials following a five-set loss to top-seed Fraser Heights in the bronze-medal final in Kelowna on Dec. 1. Moscrop took the pretournament favourite to a tiebreak following games of 25-22, 22-25, 27-25, 2325, before falling 15-12. Grade 11 power Jerome Cross was named a first-team tournament all-star. Zach Or was also named to the all-tournament second team, while Moscrop senior Marcus Jung was named the most outstanding libero. The Panthers were also singled out as the most sportsmanlike team. “We’re really proud of the boys, and more importantly, how much respect the team gained,” said Moscrop co-coach Ed Chin. The West Burnaby boys upset No. 4 Earl Marriott 25-22, 25-18, 27-25 to become one of just a small handful of Lower Mainland schools to ever reach a provincial AAA semifinal. “Beating (Marriott) in three sets, after that, everything was gravy. I’ve never seen our coaches as proud of us as that,” said Jung. “I think we took them by surprise. We just had fun with it. It was one of the last games as a family – win or lose, we felt we’d already won.” Earlier, Moscrop made senior boys’ volleyball school history, when they won their first-ever Lower Mainland championship banner following a nailbiting 19-17 tiebreaking final set over Vancouver champion Eric Hamber at Moscrop Secondary School on Nov. 15. The Panthers took the honourable mention Eric Hamber Griffins to four championship points before Ricky Sun’s attack was blocked out of bounds for the banner-winning final point.
