Burnaby’s homeless population down slightly Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Results for the 2011 Metro Vancouver Homeless Count were released Tuesday, and numbers in Burnaby are down slightly. According to preliminary numbers from the 2011 count, Burnaby has 73 homeless people, four of whom were counted in shelters. (The report noted that although Burnaby has no permanent year-round shelter, the extreme weather response shelter was open on the night of the count.) Burnaby’s total was down slightly from 2008, when the final count showed a total

of 86, including accompanying children. Wanda Mulholland of the Burnaby Task Force on Homelessness said the decrease reflects the effectiveness of the Progressive Housing Society’s work with local homeless people. “It’s true that the numbers for Burnaby are a little lower, and I think that speaks to the effectiveness of the Progressive Housing Society’s homeless outreach program,” she said, adding the non-profit group has helped 1,425 homeless people and 205 have been housed since 2008. (Of those 205, 89 have been housed more than once. While reasons vary, good housing is difficult to find, Mulholland added, and

some people need a lot of support to keep their homes.) “I think that service is working,” Mulholland said. “I think that’s part of why those numbers are down a bit.” As for the rest of the region, Mulholland pointed out that the number of people who were found in shelters was up by 76 per cent in municipalities surrounding Burnaby. “I think this really shows that shelters are the first step and that the housing continuum has had a really positive impact,” she said. The count is a snapshot of the region’s homeless population, created by vol-

unteers who go out and literally count homeless people during a 24-hour period. Tuesday’s report shows the preliminary numbers, and the final count may change slightly. Across the region, 2,623 homeless people were counted on March 16 this year, including people sleeping outside and in shelters. That’s down slightly from 2008, when 2,660 people were counted. The 2011 count showed a reduction in the number of people sleeping in parks or and streets and an increase in those sheltered, suggesting that the numbers haven’t changed much, but more people are moving indoors.

Laying the foundation:

Construction is underway at the new Eastburn Centre, which will be roughly double to size of the Bonsor Recreation Complex. Completion of the project is estimated for the fall of 2012. Larry Wright/ burnaby now

New centre is on track for 2012 opening $38 million 90,000 sq. ft. complex will sport a six-lane lap pool, double gym, youth centre and fitness room Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

While it might look like just a big hole in the ground to residents of the Edmonds area, the Eastburn Community Centre is well on track towards completion. Demolition and removal of the old community centre has been completed since the contract for constructing the new Edmonds pool and community centre was awarded in January, according to Burnaby parks, recreation and cultural services director Dave Ellenwood. The foundation pilings have also been poured, he added, and the next step is pouring the foundation forms. “Then ... the structure of the building will start to take place,” he said. Formwork is taking place over the next few weeks, he

said, and drainage infrastructure is next. The Edmonds neighbourhood is one that really needed a new facility, according to Ellenwood. “The neighbourhood is growing and rejuvenating,” he explained in an interview last summer. “A need was identified in recreation studies for a new pool there.” The building contract went to Smith Brothers & Wilson (B.C.) Ltd., which put forward the lowest bid at $32,062,690. The total construction portion of the project was estimated to cost $38 million. Going with the lowest bid, which is a common practice for the city of Burnaby, ensures the city gets “the best bang for our buck,” Mayor Derek Corrigan said when the contract was awarded last December. Corrigan thanked Ellenwood, engineering director Lambert Chu, and planning and building director Basil Luksun for their hard work on the project. “Everyone in that community is really looking forward to this,” Coun. Paul McDonell said at the meeting. “It is something the community has been waiting for awhile,” Coun. Sav Dhaliwal said of the project.

The pool is only one-third of the new 90,000 sq. ft. centre, which includes community space and a double gymnasium. It will be a six-lane pool 25 m. lap pool, Ellenwood said, with space for lessons and public use, as well as competitive swimming. There will also be a leisure pool, hot tub and sauna, according to a city staff report. The double gym will provide more space for badminton, basketball and floor hockey, Ellenwood said. A multipurpose area is also included in the plan, as well as space for childcare, studio space, a youth centre, martial arts, and space for seniors. A fitness room is also included. The new centre will be about double the size of the Bonsor Recreation Complex, Ellenwood said. Bonsor was the last community centre built in Burnaby, in the late ‘80s. The project also includes 200 parking spaces, which will require street upgrades, according to a staff report. The project is expected to be completed by the fall of 2012.

A large coyote was spotted in South Burnaby during daylight hours about two weeks ago, according to Burnaby resident Michael Taulbut. The sighting was around the same time that two coyotes were spotted during the day in the Royal Oak neighbourhood. The recently reported sighting took place near Cumberland Street and Eighth Avenue in the mid-morning hours, according to Taulbut, along with another sighting a few weeks’ before. “There was another one roaming a few blocks away about two or three weeks before this one, at 9 a.m.,” Taulbut wrote in an email to the NOW. “We see coyotes on a regular basis two or three times a year. “I think this is the third time this year we’ve seen them in the Victory Heights neighborhood, always during the day,” he added. Debbie Cusker, who lives on Pearl Avenue near Oakland Avenue, said she saw the pair twice on May 10, between 5 and 8:30 p.m. She was particularly concerned as the animals usually wait until nightfall to enter populated areas, she said. “This is not an unusual occurrence to see coyotes, skunks and raccoons, but usually we see them late at night or early in the morning, not in broad daylight,” she wrote in an email to the NOW. “This is becoming a regular occurrence.”

Cusker believes the coyotes are coming from Deer Lake Park and wanted to warn pet owners in the area to be aware of the problem. The sightings come a month after the Stanley Park Ecology Society held a presentation at Suncrest Elementary School in Burnaby, after a video was posted on YouTube showing a coyote following a woman and her small dog near the school. Co-Existing with Coyotes is a program developed by the Stanley Park Ecology Society in cooperation with the Vancouver Parks Board and B.C.’s Ministry of Environment. “We look at the nature of the concern and provide the appropriate outreach and education necessary,” said Phil Dubrulle, program coordinator of Co-Existing with Coyotes, in an interview with the NOW in April. “We act as a liaise to receive information, assess it and then make some decisions about what course of action needs to be taken. Now is a time of particular concern to the society, as it is the coyotes’ denning season. “With new pups to protect, coyote behaviour shifts so that they may become more territorial close to den sites,” Dubrulle said in a press release. Denning season takes place between April and June. Pups emerge from dens four to five weeks after birth. Anyone who sees a coyote, or a den or pups in the area, is advised to contact the program’s hotline at 604-681-9453.

Cops to face civilian oversight Criminologist backs creation of independent police watchdog Brent Richter staff reporter

The long-criticized practice of police in B.C. investigating themselves following police incidents that result in death or serious injury may soon be coming to an end. Solicitor General Shirley Bond announced last week that the province will create a civilian-led Independent Investigations Office to handle those serious incidents in the future. Creating such an office was one of the key recommendations in the Braidwood Report, following the Taser-related death of Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver International Airport. The announcement is winning praise from Rob Gordon, head of Simon Fraser University’s criminology department. Gordon said civilianled investigations of police have been in place in other provinces and outside of Canada, and the idea has been a long time coming in B.C. “It creates a system that ensures that investigators of a serious incident involving the police are going to be able to do that independently at arm’s length from the police community,” Gordon said.

New track approved The City of Burnaby is taking steps to protect the knees of joggers and walkers at Confederation Park. Council approved funding for a rubberized track at the park, to replace the current gravel and sand track. The city has budgeted $763,840 for the project, including HST. It is a very heavily used track, Coun. Sav Dhaliwal pointed out, and once the weather gets wet, there is a problem with potholes and puddles. It requires constant maintenance, according to a report from city staff, particularly in the winter. The rubberized track will also provide better support for runners’ joints, members of council added. A lighting system will also be installed. The project should take from June to August to complete. – Janaya Fuller-Evans

Under the legislation that will create the office, chiefs of police and RCMP detachment commanders must refer any police involved incidents of death or injury to the office. The office will be responsible for conducting criminal investigations of police incidents. Previously, municipal police or RCMP from another part of the province would typically handle those investigations. The office will be headed by a person who has never been in law enforcement and staffed, at first, by former police officers with investigation experience, though

they must have been out of policing for at least five years. Gordon said that while independent investigations are a progressive and necessary step, creating such an office may be as much about optics as accountability. “The image of police investigating police and there being some kind of conspiracy of silence or conspiracy of conclusion is oftentimes, I think, overdrawn. But this will clear it up once and for all,” he said. In addition to increased public scrutiny of police actions, Gordon said the

concept of civilian-led investigations into police has been gaining support among police chiefs in the province over recent years. “They had some misgivings at the outset but now they see that this pretty much has to happen. As one senior officer put it to me some time ago, ‘it’s getting the monkey off our backs,’” Gordon said. “They don’t want to do it. They don’t like doing it. It’s a drain on their resources, and this is a better way of proceeding.” The province aims to have the Independent Investigation Office up and running by the end of 2011.

When Prime Minister Stephen Harper had promised to reform the Harper promised Senate reform, we Senate by making it an elected body, thought he intended to try and improve and if he was serious about that promise it for Canada, not improve upon its use as a Conservative payoff/reward system. he would have at least waited until all the election signs had been Harper’s move to appoint pulled out of lawns before three defeated Tory candidates Burnaby NOW rewarding his team’s losers. to the Senate drew howls from And then there’s the case of opponents – as it should. defeated Conservative MP Josee Verner, It’s one thing to find retired politiwho receives severance of roughly cians – those who have gone on to do $116,000 and whom Harper immedisome good works in their retirement – it’s quite another to take newly defeated ately appointed to the $132,300 per year

OUR VIEW

Senate posting. Talk about double-dipping. Some pundits have suggested that Harper appointed the defeated Tories to incite the call for reform again, and to get the provinces involved. If he did, there’s certainly easier and less destructive ways of moving reform forward. We understand that all parties have used the Senate to reward members and as a guaranteed backup for government policies – but few seem to have used it

so quickly or so nakedly for their own interest as the Tories. The Senate has an opportunity to be a force for a judicious, sober second look at legislation – but if it is just a parking place for patronage, then it will continue to be a target for derision and jokes. If the government is serious about reform, it needs to ask the provinces to get Senators on the ballot for the next election. And it needs to lead the movement, not exploit the system for its own benefit.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR B.C. needs better deal on drugs Dear Editor:

The recently released study on the cost of generic drugs by UBC researchers points out the failure of the B.C. government to save its citizens over $150 million last year, when it did not adopt the same pricing model used by Ontario. The citizens of that province apparently pay 40 per cent less for generic drugs than we do in B.C. Faced with this critical finding by the UBC Centre for Health Services and Policy Research, the reaction of Health Minister Mike de Jong was that the B.C. government doesn’t intend to reduce the price of generic drugs to the level paid by Ontario. And why not? He stated that B.C. already has

the lowest per capita cost for pharmaceuticals in Canada. Oh, well, I thought: We’re OK, then. But wait a minute! Doesn’t “lowest per capita cost” mean that collectively we don’t spend as much as other provinces for pharmaceuticals? And if we’re not spending as much, doesn’t that simply mean we’re healthier and therefore don’t need as many drugs? But for those drugs we do need, aren’t we still paying more than our Ontario friends? Goodness me, Mr. Minister, did you just try to mislead me? De Jong then commented on the different approaches to generic drug costs by pointing out that whereas Ontario “unilaterally” legislated the price, our business-friendly government in B.C. choose to “negotiate” an agreement that, he says,

got us to the same level once you factor in the monitoring and enforcement costs that Ontario incurs. Oh, well that’s alright then, isn’t it? Hey! Just one darn minute! Did the minister of health just tell me that B.C. doesn’t spend any money on making certain the drug companies abide by the generic drug price agreement that the government negotiated? Is he kidding me? If Ontario is protecting the interests of its citizens, why isn’t B.C.? And while we’re at it, Mr. Minister, what about the standardization of health care across Canada? Aren’t drugs, generic or otherwise, part and parcel of our universal – repeat – universal health care system? If Ontario can get a better deal on generic drugs, why in the hell can’t the rest of us?!

A clear, fair, educationally sound policy such as has been drafted for the Burnaby School District is a good start towards helping not only our students, but society in general to evolve towards being inclu-

sive of all. This topic will become a part of, not the sole focus, ongoing education in the area of global human rights.

Older folks homophobic? Dear Editor:

Re: Parents say issue doesn’t belong in schools, Burnaby NOW, May 13 I was disappointed to see the number of people actively protesting against 5.45. In the photo of last week’s paper, many of the protestors were older people. It seems to me that many people from older generations still consider homosexuality a crime. It is unfortunate that there are still people who lack the open-mindedness to accept change. Even my mother was ready to sign the petition against this policy without even really understanding what it is about. I am currently a Grade 12 high school student. We have a club that supports homosexual beliefs and relationships. There are gay/lesbian people in my school, but they are not treated any differently by the students or the teachers. But when it comes to parents, there is often the occasional frown when they hear that a student is gay. I am not saying that any particular belief is right or wrong. I am simply saying

would make the best premier, voters chose Premier Christy Clark by a wide margin over the NDP’s Adrian Dix. She bested him by a margin of 47 per cent to just 25 per cent. Dix’s low score is no doubt partially related to his relative anonymity compared to Clark. He will undoubtedly fare better on that question as he becomes better known. However, B.C. Liberals have to be pleased its leader is now more popular than the party or the government (which is still largely viewed quite negatively). Clark is a demonstrable asset to the party, in stark contrast to the situation with her predecessor, who

Poll: Top parties in dead heat frighten a large number of Conservatives? A troubling sign for the B.C. Conservatives was the inane comments of its leader John Cummins, who told a Victoria radio show that he thinks people “choose” to be gay or straight. His comments reinforced the old stereotype of wacko right-wing politicians who can never attract support from beyond the fringes of the public. If he keeps making comments like those, his party will sink back to marginal status. Another key finding of the poll should put big smiles on the faces of B.C. Liberals. When asked who

seemed more of a drag than a boon on his party’s fortunes. Our political system is dominated by our leaders, which makes the question of who will make the best premier such an important one. As long as Clark can put up such high numbers on that question, her chances for success when she calls the next vote are significantly enhanced. But hey, this is just one poll, one snapshot of a lively political scene. There will be plenty more to come before the next election, but the results of this poll make one thing clear: the race is very much on.

Kites delight neighbours Dear Editor:

Kudos to Lyndhurst Elementary School; to the vice-principal for supporting a new staff member’s excellent idea; to all the staff for agreeing to the new idea and “climbing on board”; to the teacher who came up with the brilliant plan to have all the students create their own kites. It brought pure joy to my husband and me to see all the students outside flying their kites as we drove past the playground Friday afternoon. Our pleasure continued throughout the weekend as our neighbourhood kids spent time with their friends, parents, and grandparents enjoying their kites. Brilliant! Ila Appleby, Burnaby

No pity for bullied bigots Dear Editor:

Re: Are beliefs ‘dangerous’?, Letters to the editor, Burnaby NOW, May 11 “In fact, by counselling children that they and their parents and friends hold “dangerous beliefs,” is this not a form of name-calling or bullying in itself?” This comment struck me as an example of how the religious right erroneously equates hate against homosexuals with intolerance of religious beliefs, when they are not, in any way, equal. One is about creating legislation and policies to protect persecuted children in school. The other is about protecting the rights of parents to freely teach hate without their children thinking poorly of them. The writers of this comment want public schools to OK bigotry because their religion teaches bigotry. They may express their hate in polite, articulate ways, but it is still hate. They teach their children

Festivals get city grants The city granted $73,400 in funding to 18 festivals in Burnaby at the May 9 council meeting. The largest grant – $10,000 – went to the European Festival, held on May 28. The other large-scale event grant was $7,500 to India Day celebrations on Aug. 13. In the small-scale event category, 11 festivals received funding, ranging from Hats Off Day on June 4 (which received $6,000) to the African Ekassa Cultural Festival on July 16 (which received $2,700). Five neighbourhood festivals received

grants, including the Forest Grove Spring Fair on May 27 and the Kensington Community Fair on Aug. 6, which both received $2,000. The lowest grant was $450, to the Burnaby Youth Hub Barbecue and Celebration, put on by the Lower Mainland Purpose society on June 17. Grant requests from Burnaby Family Life and the Carnival Sensations Caribbean Society were denied, as they did not fall within the guidelines of the Festivals Burnaby Grant Program, a staff report stated.

Burnaby’s Sikh temple is holding a Nagar Kirtan parade – a neighbourhood procession through the city singing hymns – this weekend. The Shri Guru Ravidass Sabha society’s parade is set for Saturday, May 28. It goes from the temple at 7271 Gilley Ave. through the Metrotown area, and back to the temple. “It’s growing every year,” Harjit Sohpaul, president of the society, said in a phone interview. The parade – which is in its fourth year – started with 1,000 attendees its first year. Sohpaul is expecting about 3,000 this year. “It’s one of a kind in Burnaby,” Sohpaul said. “Everybody enjoys it.” The parade starts at about 11 a.m. at the temple, heading towards Rumble Street,

then along Rumble Street to Royal Oak Avenue, heading on along Imperial Street, MacPherson Avenue, and back towards the temple along Beresford Street. The parade has many stops along the way, with complimentary food stalls along the route for those attending, according to Sohpaul. It should run till about 5 p.m. Tea and samosas will be available, he said. There will be between five and seven floats in all, with other groups such as schools, also participating in the parade. There will be speeches at the temple at 10 a.m., with local politicians participating, and other speeches along the way. Burnaby’s Mayor Derek Corrigan, along with other city councillors and dignitaries, will be speaking at the event, Sohpaul added.

The Japanese Canadian National Museum is celebrating the history of Powell Street. The museum is featuring a new exhibit, Monogatari: Tales of Powell Street (19201941). The opening ceremony is set for Friday, May 27, from 7 to 9 p.m., and the exhibition runs from May 28 to Oct. 1. The exhibition explores the many tales of Powell Street – the pre-war commercial and residential district of the Japanese community in Vancouver. By 1921, most of Vancouver’s 4,000 Japanese residents lived within walking distance of the area. Baseball fans packed the Powell Grounds to watch the Asahi Baseball Team play, and children walked to Strathcona School and on to Japanese language school in the afternoon. In 1942, almost 22,000 people of Japanese ancestry were uprooted from their homes in B.C. during Second World War internment. Almost half of those came from the Powell Street

Students help students

A group of students at Burnaby Central Secondary are helping others south of the equator. Every year, Central’s Global Action Against Poverty group raises money to build schools in developing countries. This year’s funds will help build a school in Ecuador. The local students are holding their main fundraiser on Friday, June 3 from 6 to 9 p.m. It’s a festival called Me Gustan Las Fiestas. (My Spanish isn’t the greatest, but I’m guessing this means: I like fiestas?) Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students. Children 12 and under can get in with a minimum donation of $5. The show will have performances, live music and Spanish food. While you’re enjoying the entertainment, you’re helping kids in a developing country. For tickets, contact Margaret.Ritchie@sd41. bc.ca.

Bloc party: Members of the Palme Theatre, a local Russian-speaking theatre troupe, will be performing Buratino, a musical play for children that is the Russian equivalent of Pinocchio, as part of the Russia Day celebration.

The Russians are coming! Andrew Fleming staff reporter

The Russians aren’t actually coming, they’re already happily ensconced here in Burnaby and have been for years. In Metro Vancouver, a city where socalled visible minorities nearly make up a majority, members of the Russian and former Soviet Bloc communities are perhaps less visibly obvious, but they still make up for a sizeable chunk of the cultural mosaic. According to the most recent census, Russian immigrants make up roughly 2.3 per cent of the population – nearly 50,000 people and certainly more than enough to support a massive, three-day celebration of all things Russian (with a side helping of Serbian culture for good measure) taking place in early June. “It is the biggest festival of its kind in the province,” said Russia Days spokesperson Andrey Ahachinsky proudly. “I went to Moscow three weeks ago to go to an international conference of Russian cultural supporters, and in Vancouver, we have one of the best organized communities.”

The event, now in its third year, kicks teers,” said Ahachinsky, who moved to off Thursday night, June 9, with an open- Canada from Ukraine in 1996. ing ceremony at the Russian Community “Singing, acting, gymnastics, we do all Centre in Strathcona. of them.” The real party gets rolling with a day Along with the food and theatre perlong family-friendly event on Saturday, formances for children, there will also June 11 at the Serbian Cultural be interactive arts and crafts Centre in Burnaby. live music, Gypsy “It is the biggest workshops, “There’s going to be a neverdancing, a Serbia versus Russia festival of its kind soccer showdown and much ending supply of food,” said Ahachinsky. in the province. more. “We are gathering all the Pretty much the only thing … In Vancouver, many people associate with best chefs that we know in town, and people who bake Russia that won’t be attendance we have one of and cook at home and then sell is a certain spirit made from the best their goods, they’re all going to fermented grain. be there. “There won’t be vodka organized “All the perogies and the because we have kids, and in communities.” cabbage rolls and borscht and respect to them, we’ll only be desserts.

Fine dining at EBO THE DISH Alfie Lau

our friends, four dishes, four wine pairings, four different desserts and three hours of dining that seemed like 10 minutes. The EBO Restaurant at the Grand Villa Casino is taking fine dining to a new level, as I discovered one recent weeknight. Marketing maven Brenda Smith had invited me and three guests for a jam-packed night of entertainment. The plan was for my hockey pool buddy, Ben Doyle, my curling geek friend Nancy Stagg and her husband, the Dubrulle Culinary Schooltrained Rob Stagg, to have a four-course meal at EBO before heading to the Scala Lounge for Duelling Pianos. Ben was coming from

downtown Vancouver and got stranded on a bus somewhere, so Rob, Nancy and I started without him because our attentive hosts, Shanna Ridley and Sarah Vanderveer, wanted to make sure we made Duelling Pianos with lots of time to spare. Our menu, specially prepared by award-winning executive chef Dan Craig, began with an infused duck consommé, featuring roasted Quebec foie gras, pickled daikon and compressed pears. “The pickled daikon is the star of this dish,” said Rob. “It really makes the dish.” Making our dinner even better was the specialized wine pairings Craig had suggested and Vanderveer served to us. With Nancy as our designated driver, that meant the male folk could enjoy robust five-ounce portions of the wine, which began with a Jackson Triggs Grand Reserve 2008 Sauvignon Blanc. “For the lady, I can

serve a one-ounce portion,” said Vanderveer as Nancy’s eyes lit up. That’s the type of customer service you won’t find in many Burnaby restaurants, and that began a conversation that shows just how rare EBO is in the city. “There aren’t enough fine dining establishments in the city,” said Nancy, who finally learned that EBO stands for east of Boundary Road. Rob agreed, noting that too many restaurants are more concerned with turning over tables instead of giving diners a first-class dining experience. By now, we were more than an hour into our dining and conversation, and almost as if on cue, Vanderveer came with our next dish, the beetroot and goat cheese, which featured roasted beets, molten marcella goat cheese, organic lettuce, textures of apples and pine nut granola. “The pine nuts are a very nice touch,” said Rob.

TASTE EBO: Chef focuses on B.C. ingredients, unique dishes at Grand Villa continued from page 15

As Rob and I polished off five ounces of our next white wine pairing, a 2009 Cedar Creek Pinot Gris, Nancy had her kids’ version. And then, out of the ether, fresh from an interminably long bus ride, came Ben. By now, Dan Craig’s roast scallops, served with a vanilla scented cauliflower puree, serrano ham, capers and sultana raisins was on the table, and we were overwhelmed by the sophisticated simplicity of the dish. The purée was a nice, mild complement to the plump scallops and the ham, cut razor thin, had a

sublime, understated quality. Our wine pairing, our third white of the night and first from California, was a delicious 2007 Liparita Cellars Sauvignon Blanc from Yountville California. For our main, Craig outdid himself with the grilled and marinated lamb chops, braised cheek, roast tomatoes, pearl cous cous, butternut squash purée, fresh mint and braise juices. “The lamb is good, but the cous cous is even better,” said Nancy. I would agree, but the real star was our wine pairing, our first red of the night, a 2007 Jackson Triggs Proprietors Edition

Shiraz. Craig was working so hard in the kitchen that it wasn’t until now that he was able to sit down and talk to us about his cooking. “We use a lot of local B.C. ingredients, and you saw tonight what we could do with local fruits, vegetables and seafood,” said the youthful 29-year-old. “We’re always trying

to do better and produce dishes you won’t get anywhere else.” There’s no better evidence of this than the four dessert dishes Craig prepared for us: cherry financier cake featuring orange goat cheese yogurt, mulled wine sherbet and gooseberries; candied apple crumble; pistachio and chocolate crème brûlée; and warm chocolate

brownie, featuring a tower of peanut butter ice cream and hot chocolate dipping sauce. It was such an enjoyable night at EBO that we didn’t get to Scala until 9:10 p.m., just in time to see Michael Sicoly and Tom Arntzen wow the crowds at Duelling Pianos. We’d spent more than three hours eating at EBO, and the time had flown by.

Good food, good company and good wine. Is there a better way to spend an evening in Burnaby? ◆ EBO Restaurant is located at the Grand Villa Casino at 4331 Dominion St. To make a reservation, call 604-453-0788.

Proper rest means more than just sleep HEALTHWISE

Dr. Davidicus Wong

ously going through cellular renewal and rebuilding as we sleep and throughout the day. We require more than just eight hours of sleep to get the rest we need for long and healthy lives.

In my interview with Dr. Edlund, he described many forms of rest, including physical, mental, social and spiritual rest. You can listen to our conversation on my Positive Potential Medicine radio

show at pwrnradio.com. As an exercise in active rest, he recommended walking to the rhythm of a favourite song in the middle of the day when you find your energy waning. He gives a formula to

follow throughout the day: FAR. Food should be followed by physical Activity before we Rest. This has helped many of his patients achieve a healthy weight and wellbeing by respecting our

bodies’ natural rhythms. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a physician and writer. His blog can be found at davidi cuswong.wordpress.com, twitter.com/drdavidicuswong and facebook.com/davidicus. wong.

A

re you getting enough rest? This is a question I’ve been asking more often because rest is so important to good health. It’s as vital to your longevity, well-being and happiness as a healthy diet and physical activity. Too often we sell ourselves short on sleep. Most parents ensure their preteens and toddlers get to bed on time, but many don’t realize that they too require at least seven to eight hours of sleep each night. Teens typically go to sleep later than their parents, and it’s not just because of homework. The call of the cell, Skype, Facebook and other forms of social media never allows them to completely disconnect and get the extra sleep their growing brains and bodies need. This leads to increasing sleep debt, and the cost could be suboptimal emotional, physical and mental performance. You can tell if you’ve accumulated a sleep debt by how late you sleep in on weekends when you have nothing else to do, but if your schedule is packed 24/7, you may never have the opportunity to find out … until you get sick. At any age, sleeping pills can increase our risk for accidents. Your ability to drive the morning after taking a sleeping pill could be impaired. Like being drunk, we underestimate the impairment and overestimate our abilities. Many people self-medicate with a nightcap, but alcohol is definitely not what the doctor ordered. A drink is like a dirty mixture of drugs. It first sedates the brain, making us feel relaxed and sleepy, but the late effect of that same drink excites our nervous system, making us feel anxious, wired or wide awake, thinking we’re due for another shot. I had the opportunity to speak to Dr. Matthew Edlund, known as the Rest Doctor in the U.S. In his book, The Power of Rest: Why Sleep Alone is Not Enough, he points out that most people think of the human body as a machine and that when we sleep, our bodies are dormant. Our bodies are continu-

Jr. Lakers no match for Adanacs Tom Berridge

sports editor

It wasn’t heart that was lacking in the Burnaby Lakers’ fourth straight loss. The junior A Lakers found themselves in a tie for fifth place in the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League following a 14-7 loss to the unbeaten defending Minto Cup champion Coquitlam Adanacs at home on Sunday. A day earlier, Burnaby lost 11-10 in Nanaimo where a blown call on a delayed penalty led to a Timbermen goal. Sunday’s outcome was of no further comfort despite Coquitlam’s obvious superiority over the junior Lakers. “(The Lakers) don’t have the talent level as (the Adanacs) do, but they’ve got heart,” said assistant coach Stu Watson, who finished the game behind the bench for Burnaby. “We battled the refs and we battled Coquitlam, but we didn’t give up.” The Lakers might not have been judged too harshly had they thrown in the towel. Jaeden Gastaldo, Burnaby’s hero with four goals and one assist against the T-Men on Saturday, was thrown out of the game along with Coquitlam’s Trent Hawke for what appeared to be little more than an innocent bit of roughing in front of the Lakers’ bench midway through the second period. Laker head coach John Wilson was subsequently tossed as well for disputing the call. In all, Coquitlam scored on eight of 10 chances while on the power play. BCJLL scoring leader Travis Cornwall opened the game with his first of three power-play markers. Cornwall finished the contest with a game-high four goals and eight points. Right-side shooter, Matthew Dinsdale, also garnered eight points for the 7-0 A’s, including a natural hat trick in the open-

ing period – the final goal coming at the 20-minute buzzer. Colton Dow, who had two goals in Saturday’s loss to Nanaimo, scored three times against his old club. But struggling at times to keep the ball alive against the relentless aggression of the Adanacs, Burnaby gave up possession far too often on loose balls and simple passing and catching to Coquitlam. “One of the things we’ve been talking about is valuing the ball,” said Watson. “Are we better than when we started? Yes, but especially against a good team, you have to value the ball because they don’t give you many chances.” The Lakers meet the Delta Islanders in Ladner today (Wednesday) but then have 10 days to work on the fundamentals before taking on the Shamrocks in Victoria on June 4. The juniors will be back at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Sunday, June 5 against the Langley Thunder. Coquitlam is clearly the favourite to win the B.C. title again this season, despite New Westminster’s one-sided 20-1 victory in Nanaimo on Sunday. The Adanacs lost more than nine players to graduation last season, including four first-round picks at this year’s Western Lacrosse Association entry draft. But Coquitlam head coach Curt Malawsky said it’s all about making another run at the Minto Cup. “The kids are looking at what we lost, but as coaches, we’re looking at what we retained,” said Malawsky. And at present, the A’s have the three leading scorers in the B.C. loop, including Wesley Berg, with a league-best 24 goals. Coquitlam also is way ahead in many team categories, including 88 goals for, 25 power-play markers and 138 assists – nearly 50 better than the next closest club.

Marching on: The Burnaby North Vikings, in maroon, mounted a late-game rally to defeat the Moscrop Panthers 10-5 in overtime in the Lower Mainland Tier 2 high school rugby final last Wednesday.

North wins first NZ Shield banner Tom Berridge sports editor

Cole Turner gave the Burnaby North Vikings their first-ever New Zealand Shield Tier 2 rugby banner, scoring the game-winning try in overtime against Moscrop in the all-Burnaby final at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-East Wednesday. Turner bowled over for North’s second try of the game in the first period of overtime after both teams

played to a 5-5 draw in regulation time. Marred by two outbursts of fisticuffs, the game was blown down prematurely in OT following Turner’s score. John Yan gave Moscrop a 5-0 half-time lead, but North clawed its way back late in the contest with outside centre Jake Coombes tying it up with a try of his own from 20 metres out. Moscrop had a number of chanc-

es to extend its lead inside the North 20-metre line in the second half, but declined each time to take the penalty kick at goal. “We just wanted to win, we had never won the district banner before,” said Turner after the match. North will take on Tier 1 Alpha for the Burnaby district banner today (Wednesday) at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-East. Game time is scheduled for 4 p.m.

Clan bow out after NAIA tiebreak Tom Berridge sports editor

Simon Fraser University was eliminated from its final NAIA women’s softball national championship. The defending small college champs finished pool play with a 2-1 record following a 3-2 loss to the Simpson University Redhawks on March 21. The loss left the Clan tied witih Simpson and Lubbuck Christian, which held the tiebreak advantage in run differential and advanced to the double elimination championship round. “Statistically, I felt we

were the better team, but it’s about the timing of hits, and if you leave that many players on bases, it hurts you in the end,” said SFU head coach Mike Renney in a press release. “But I think getting to the national championships and defeating two top-15 teams in the round robin exceeded everybody’s expectations.” SFU opened the nationals with a 10-2 win over Reinhardt University. Leah Riske led off a five-run sixth inning with a solo home run to erase a 1-0 deficit. Cara Lukawesky went the distance for the Clan, allowing just four hits.

The following day, SFU knocked off Lubbock Christian University of Texas 4-3. The Clan again began a rally in the sixth on Brittany Mayer’s twoout single. Rosie Murphy smaked a double to bring in a pair of runs to give SFU a 3-1 lead. Lukawesky gave up seven hits in seven innings to pick up her second straight win. But SFU failed to generate the same magic on the crucial third day of pool elimination play. The Clan left the bases loaded in the top of the first inning against Simpson. SFU tied the contest 2-2

in the sixth inning on pinch hitter Sammie Olexa’s single that scored Lauren Mew and Murphy. The Clan had a second chance in the inning to score the go-ahead runs, but left the bases loaded on a ground out. Simpson scored the game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh on shallow single to left-centre by Nichole Hutchins. Lukaweksy took the loss. The Clan finished with a 4-3 all-time record in the NAIA national championship finals. SFU will play next season in the NCAA Division 11 Great Northwest Athletic Conference.

WLA LACROSSE

Lakers get F against the A’s The Burnaby Lakers earned a failing grade in its 15-8 Friday home game loss to the Coquitlam Adanacs. The Lakers gave up five goals in each of the three periods and looked an unprepared club in just their second game of the Western Lacrosse Association season. “It’s loose balls, it’s faceoffs, and then we couldn’t get the ball back. It was demoralizing. Our passing and catching wasn’t good and (Coquitlam’s) was excellent. We were just taken out of the game,” said Lakers head coach Bob Johnston. Burnaby hung with the A’s until the final four minutes of the first period, when Coquitlam rattled off three quick goals, includ-

ing a last-second counter by Dane Dobbie, who led all scorers with six points. The Lakers mounted a brief rally to get back to within a single goal of the visiting A’s, but Jon Harnett’s shorthanded goal at 14:50 of the middle frame seemed to take the fight out of the Burnaby comeback. The Lakers were nowhere to be seen in the final frame, allowing Coquitlam all sorts of early opportunities to fall behind 15-6 before finally inking the scoresheet with two late goals. “We were humbled tonight,” Johnston said. “The other team was good.” But not that good. Burnaby outshot Coquitlam, firing 56 shots at A’s starter Brandon Atherton, mostly from long range.

At the other end of the floor, Burnaby netminder Scott Lowe stopped 36 of 51 shots. Second-year Adanac shooters Jon Diplock and Jason Jones both capitalized on 50 per cent of their shots on goal, scoring three and two goals, respectively. Coquitlam minor product Spencer Martin, who tallied just two goals in his last WLA season with the Burnaby Lakers in 2008, had a goal in a three-point debut as a senior Adanac. Daryl Veltman and Cory Conway also added five points apiece for the A’s. “Their better players played better than ours tonight. They took it to us,” Johnston added. Burnaby is on the road to Victoria on Friday before returning home to host the Langley Thunder on June 3.

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
